    The names of the tech workers in this story have been changed.Ten thousand miles from Silicon Valley, in a room near the Black Sea, Yegor Karpenchekov dreams of money. At night, while the rest of Odessa sleeps and cocaine smugglers drift in and out of the port under cover of darkness, Yegor logs onto FaceTime and talks to a 70-year-old woman in San Francisco. Her name is Sally Faubion, and five months ago she recruited Yegor from the freelancer marketplace UpWork to code her apps. She believes "divine intervention" brought them together; for Yegor, it was likely $20 per hour...
  • Why western God-haters willfully choose magic, nihilism, depravity, and stupidity

    From the close of the Medieval Age on through to our own time, God-haters have been waging war against the God of Revelation. The reason for this unrelenting attack upon the Triune God, but especially Jesus Christ, is mankind's sinful fallen condition. God-haters desire suppression of the knowledge of their own sin, which they hope will stifle the gnawing pain of a guilty conscience
  • Netflix May Face a Lawsuit From the Satanic Temple Over 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

    Netflix could soon face legal action from the Satanic Temple, a religious group that claims its copyrighted design of the deity Baphomet was used without permission in the The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In Sabrina—the streaming service’s recently released, spooky rendition of Sabrina the Teenage Witch—the statue of a large goat-headed figure appears as Satan in a handful of episodes. A statue of this figure flanked by two children appears as a centerpiece in Sabrina’s school of witchcraft, the Academy of the Unseen Arts. According to Lucien Greaves, co-founder and spokesperson of the Satanic Temple, this statue appropriated the religion’s...
  • Google Doodle honors Day of the Dead with its own altar

    El Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is an ancient holiday that celebrates death and loved ones who've passed on. Google on Thursday is joining the holiday, observed each year on Nov. 2, with its own Doodle altar to the dead. The celebration traditionally features gatherings in which families pray and remember relatives and friends who have died and help them with their spiritual journey. Rather than mournful events, the holiday celebrates death as a part of the cycle of life, thereby dispelling fear of dying. The holiday also often serves as a source of...

    BARTOW, Fla. — Police say two middle school girls, who worship Satan, armed themselves with knives in a foiled plot to violently kill classmates and drink their blood at school on Tuesday. The 6th and 7th-grade girls attend Bartow Middle School, police say. At 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Bartow Police School Resource Officer assigned to the school was summoned to the principal's office in reference to an armed juvenile complaint. The investigation revealed that the students armed themselves with knives, and planned on attacking fellow students during the school day. "Fortunately, they were intercepted by school staff hiding in a...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Witches plan to place a public hex on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh through an occult ritual on Oct. 20 in New York City, an event sponsored by Catland Books, which describes itself as "Brooklyn's premiere occult bookshop & spiritual community space." The planned ritual has been advertised on Facebook.  "Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them," reads the description for the event, "Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh." "We are embracing witchcraft's true roots as the magik of the poor, the...

    PJ Media ^ | 14 Sep 18 | Faith Moore
    Vampires, it seems, have gone mainstream. According to The New York Post, “drinking young people’s blood could help you live longer and prevent age-related diseases.” (It could also cause you to develop sensitivity to light, sleep in some unusual places, and morph into a small flying rodent, but beggars can’t be choosers.) Actually, though, the Post’s claim is somewhat misleading. Patients don’t really have to drink the blood, they can receive it via transfusion. Technology has advanced, it seems, even for vampires. Jesse Karamazin, the California "doctor" behind this anti-aging regimen, doesn’t actually have a license to practice medicine, but...

    Today’s blog is a little bit ‘out there’ so be forewarned. The EU Parliament Building has a shocking similarity to the Tower of Babel of numerous ancient cultures, which I hope to prove on the balance of evidence was intentional, despite EU protestations to the contrary. This can only lead to a deeper discussion of not only why they would wish this to be the case, but what their intentions for Europe are, and what ideology drives them. You will be shocked at what you are about to discover. Let’s take our first step down the rabbit-hole.

    The Nazi fascination with fantastical science and the occult has long made for spectacular entertainment. From Indiana Jones trying to save the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant from the Nazis, to comic-book super-soldier serums, to the reoccurring use of supernatural charlatanism to dupe the Germans in Hogan’s Heroes, pop culture has propagated the idea of the Nazis as obsessed with mysticism and mad science. And pop historians have eagerly provided background for these tales.How much of it is true?Quite a lot, it turns out. Recently released in paperback by Yale University Press, Eric Kurlander’s book Hitler’s...

    ......Enter The New York Times’ former executive editor Jill Abramson, who wrote that she carries an Obama doll in her purse as a symbol of hope in the Trump era. It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America.

    BOSTON Two separate crimes against children in recent days have one haunting similarity: authorities have pointed to Voodoo rituals as a possible motive. But practitioners of Haitian Vodou, which adherents spell differently to distinguish it from other variants, say the religion does not sanction violence and fear the crimes will spark a backlash against their community. "We are being targeted," said Maude Evans, a Haitian native and Vodou priestess in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood. "I'm really concerned that that's how it's going to be from now on. They will do things and blame it on Vodou." Two sisters in East Bridgewater...

    “Spirit cooking.” Occult imagery outside meetings of the most powerful people in the world. Bizarre rituals held at globally important events. What is going on? What perverted ideology animates those who control our global destiny? Global insider Theodore Roosevelt Malloch, who was worked at the highest levels on Wall Street, at the United Nations, at elite universities like Yale and Oxford and served on the executive board of the World Economic Forum, has a disturbing answer. It’s “Luciferianism.” And Malloch described the ideology and its influence on world leaders in a recent interview on Infowars. “The E.U. is part, of...
  • Pelosi: ‘God Is with Us on This’ Democrats on Adding DACA to a Budget Deal

    Trying her hand at prophesy, the House minority leader is now saying God is siding Democrats in its efforts to attach Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals (DACA) legislation to a House budget bill, an issue that may lead a government shutdown. "We're not backing off anything," Pelosi said Thursday of Democrats' demand that a DREAM Act pass before Congress recess for the year. "We are not going to turn this country into a reign of terror of domestic enforcement, and have the DACA, the DREAMers pay that price." Pelosi then invoked the Almighty, arguing he's favoring Democrats in the policy...

    I told you Nancy Pelosi belongs in a mental institution and she has definitely proved it now. She told a recent gathering of the Women’s Political Committtee that spirits of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth cady Stanton and Alice Paul spoke to her at the White House. Seriously, I’m not kidding. She said she heard them say, “At last we have a seat at the table.” Pelosi tells the women, “He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going...

    Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Answer yes either way and that might make you an alt-leftie. Marketwatch just ran an interesting piece headlined, “Why millennials are ditching religion for witchcraft and astrology.” It didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t know. Young people are embracing the occult faster than you can spell it. This shouldn’t be surprising. They’ve been getting bombarded with witches, spells, demons, vampires and more for decades -- from Harry Potter to Twilight. It only makes sense that they...

    When Coco Layne, a Brooklyn-based producer, meets someone new these days, the first question that comes up in conversation isn’t “Where do you live?” or “What do you do?” but “What’s your sign?” Interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials. The majority of Americans now believe it is not necessary to believe in God to have good morals, a study from Pew Research Center released Wednesday found. The percentage of people between the ages of 18 and 29 who “never doubt existence of God” fell from 81% in 2007 to...
  • Prosecutors say Texas lawmaker spent $51K on online psychic

    Travis County prosecutors say in a court filing that state Rep. Dawnna Dukes spent more than $51,000 on an online psychic, appeared for work at the Capitol impaired and hid a cellphone from investigators. The filing this week was provided by prosecutors ahead of her Oct. 16 misdemeanor corruption trial and is meant to inform Dukes' attorneys of the allegations prosecutors will assert during the trial. The Austin Democrat is accused of giving a taxpayer-funded raise to a legislative aide to cover gas money for shuttling Dukes' daughter back and forth from school. The Austin American-Statesman reports that prosecutors still...
