When the Masjid Al-Kareem mosque in Providence, Rhode Island, received a threatening letter in November calling Muslims a “vile and filthy people,” its members were frightened enough they asked for and got extra police protection. The 42-year-old mosque was far from alone. The letter it received was one of 2,213 anti-Muslim bias incidents in the US last year, according to a report released on Tuesday by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

US Travel Ban: Muslim-Americans Follow Lead Of Republicans By Pretending To Be Christian

us travel ban

With many Muslims now banned from entering the United States, some have been left with no choice but to pretend to be Christian – a desperate measure first perfected by Republican politicians.

Following the lead of Republicans, thousands of Americans born in majority Muslim countries are claiming to live by a certain set of morals and beliefs, without actually putting those beliefs into practice.

“If you’re desperate to get in, and saying you believe in Jesus is what it takes to get in, then you do it,” one Republican Senator, said, adding that he wouldn’t hesitate to do it again at the next election.

“When your livelihood is on the line, you’ll say and do whatever it takes,” said Ahmed Al-Bayati – an Iraqi man living in the United States – and Robert Johnson, a Republican Senator.

“I follow the teachings of Jesus, just like Mr Trump does,” Mr Al-Bayati said.

“So do I,” Senator Johnson added.

Jesus Distances Himself From United States

PEARLY GATES – For generations religious kooks from all across America have claimed that the country was founded on Christian principles and is indeed a “Christian nation,” whatever the hell that means. However, their credibility took a big hit this morning when Jesus Christ, the Son of God, held a brief news conference in which he distanced himself from the United States in general and the Trump Administration in particular.

“I just want everyone on earth to know that I do not in any way support the actions of this pubescent orangutan,” said Jesus, referring to President Trump. “It’s a damn shame that an entire planet has to suffer because one man is insecure about the size of his penis.”

“Furthermore, I’ve had it up to here with a bunch of cretins running around making idiotic laws in my name. Most of these folks wouldn’t recognize me if I came up and bit them on the ass. What is it with these people? Can’t they read?  I guess the whole New Testament was a fucking waste of time.

“It’s days like today that I appreciate the work of my less popular cousin, Lucifer. There are gonna be a lot of evangelicals who are in for a nice warm surprise.”

“In closing, I’d like to say unequivocally that the United States is a far cry from a Christian nation. Any country that rejects refugees fleeing famine, war, and persecution should be ashamed of itself. I was once a refugee and I know what’s it’s like. I’m seriously considering a series of sanctions, including earthquakes, volcanoes, tidal waves, and a plague of orange cane toads for every state that voted for that asshole. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got soccer practice.”

After the press conference the White House immediately issued a statement saying that Jesus was spreading “fake news” and if he keeps it up he’ll suffer the consequences.

The Reverend Franklin Graham went on CNN and told viewers that Jesus had no idea what he was talking about and urged Jesus to get to know Trump personally. “If the Lord would just take time off from his other pursuits and meet with Trump I’m sure he’d change his mind,” said Graham, as the blood of a recently devoured infant ran down his chin.

Republican leaders were unavailable for comment, but an aide to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said that he was trying to decide which way to go on the matter.

“Speaker Ryan is in the process of determining whether it would be better to support God or President Trump. After all, he has his political future to protect,” said the aide on condition of anonymity.

Illegal Votes? Reports Mysterious Foreigner Voted 3 Million Times In US Election

putin illegal voting

Donald Trump’s repeated claim that millions of illegal votes were cast in the recent presidential election appear to be true, with reports that one man – an unregistered voter from Moscow – may have voted 3 million times.

The man – pictured above – is believed to have cast the votes, despite not being a US citizen.

“I’ve heard of people voting in multiple polling stations in the one city. But this guy appears to have voted in North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, all in the one morning,” an electoral expert said.

Mr Trump said it was ‘not what I meant’ when referring to illegal voting.

Obama Vows To Destroy Country One Last Time Before Inauguration

obama444

 

WASHINGTON – At a press conference earlier today President Obama pledged to destroy the country one last time before turning over the reigns of power to Donald Trump, the first illiterate person to be elected President of the United States.

“I just want to make sure I leave this fucking place in the same shape I found it in,” said an emotional Obama.

The President did not specify what form this last orgy of destruction would take, but White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters later that it would be one of the President’s more creative efforts.

“He may alter the path of a large asteroid and have it impact at the geographical center of the lower 48, or he could cause huge tidal waves to hit both the east and west coasts simultaneously,” said a smiling Earnest. “Hell, he may even order our submarines to launch their Trident II missiles and wipe out every major city in America, you just never know with Barry.”

Experts from around the country say that this will mark the 47th time Obama has “completely destroyed America.”

Professor Hikita of the Banzai Institute told CNN that the variety of methods Obama has used in the past is mind-boggling, and there’s no way to predict how he’ll destroy the country this time.

“The bastard provided health insurance to poor people one time, then he orchestrated a deadly agreement with the Iranians that guaranteed we would all die of radiation poisoning another time,” said Hikita. “Then there was the time he rounded up all the Christians in Texas and sentenced them to live the rest of their lives in forced labor camps under WalMart Supercenters. He’s diabolical!”

The crescendo of doom is expected to begin sometime this evening and continue until the swearing-in ceremony tomorrow morning, leaving little time for many of us to live.

Sara Palin told Fox News that our only hope lies in the good and honorable man we’ve elected to be our next president.

“God has sent Donald Trump to save America, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it,” said Palin, as she injected 1/2 a gram of methamphetamine into a pulsating vein in her temple. “Trust in Jesus and everything will be just fine.”

Nearly half of Americans support sanctions on Israel, poll finds | +972 Magazine

As the Democratic party regroups ahead of the next election cycle, it would be wise for its leadership to examine areas where the Clinton campaign diverged from the party’s base. Israel-Palestine is one of those issues. The number of Americans who support imposing sanctions on Israel over its defiant settlement policies has shot up to 46 percent, the same percentage of Americans who voted for Donald Trump in the presidential election. [tmwinpost] That number has shot up nearly 10 percentage points over the past year, according to a national poll published by the Brookings Institute on Friday, on the sidelines…

White, Male, Billionaire ‘Outsider’ Candidate Elected President, In Big Middle Finger To Establishment

trump-outsider

Americans have sent the strongest possible message to the nation’s establishment, electing a 70 year-old rich white man from New York.

“We really showed them,” one Republican voter said today. “Those elites with all the power and money can go shove it!”

“This wasn’t a race between Democrat and Republican,” another voter pointed out, “It was a race between the establishment, and an interloper who just happens to own his own building on Wall Street”.

She said it was a revolutionary change. “He was born with every possible advantage. In other words, the ultimate outsider.”
