Brad Thor Changes His Mind

Brad Thor Changes His Mind:

This is not easy news (especially for a #NeverTrump stalwart) to deliver.America, you have cancer. And it’s bad – really bad. It’s aggressive. It has spread throughout most of your body and it’s continuing its march.

How much time do we have left? Less than three months.

Is there a cure? We’re not completely sure, but there are two alternatives:

The first is a decades-old generic, lacking any potency whatsoever. Studies have shown that Drug #1 not only won’t cure the cancer, but that it will actually strengthen it and speed our death. Drug #1 offers no upside whatsoever.

Drug #2 is being offered out of a clinic in Mexico. It claims to be a surefire, can’t lose, 100% guaranteed treatment. The clinic, though, is run by pockmarked, gold-toothed, oily-haired- men in bad suits with absolutely no medical backgrounds. They ogle your wife and daughter incessantly anytime you drop by for more information, and are constantly trying to upsell you into an oceanfront timeshare.

So, which drug should we choose?

Drug #1 will kill us – no question. Drug #2 might kill us, but it also might:

A) Slow the cancer, or even

B) Cure the cancer

It’s a lot to hope for, I know, but hope is all we have left. We have exhausted every other avenue. Make no mistake – I believe one hundred percent in standing on principle. Principle, in this case though, will not cure cancer.

Sadly, that crappy clinic south of the border is starting to look like our only option.

Blood Moon This Weekend

I have written about the Blood Moons several times. Sunday night we get the final Blood Moon this weekend of four in the last two years.

Hang on to your hats. According to “Two Christian preachers with huge followings in the US claim the date of the last of four ‘blood moons’ over the past 18 months, due to occur on September 28, and following a papal visit to the US, will signal the second coming of Jesus Christ.

“At the same time, the world as we know it will be destroyed by major earthquakes amid heightened tensions in the Middle East and the possibility of a third world war.

“The two evangelists have been accused of peddling the false warnings in order to cash in on books they have penned about their predictions – one of which was turned into a movie.

“The pair claim Armageddon will occur at the conclusion of the ongoing ‘tetrad’ of blood moons, which began on April 15 last year, followed by another red-coloured lunar eclipse on October 8 last year, and a third on April 4 this year.”
