So-called church offers miracle cure. Feel like drinking bleach?!


Industrial Bleach for $20 – what a bargain!

❝ A group calling itself Genesis II Church of Health and Healing plans to convene at a hotel resort in Washington state [last] Saturday to promote a “miracle cure” that claims to cure 95% of all diseases in the world by making adults and children, including infants, drink industrial bleach.

The group is inviting members of the public through Facebook to attend what they call their “effective alternative healing” at the Icicle Village Resort in Leavenworth on Saturday morning. The organizer of the event, Tom Merry, has publicized the event on his personal Facebook page by telling people that learning how to consume the bleach “could save your life, or the life of a loved one sent home to die”.

❝ The “church” is asking attendants of the meeting to “donate” $450 each, or $800 per couple, in exchange for receiving membership to the organization as well as packages of the bleach, which they call “sacraments”. The chemical is referred to as MMS, or “miracle mineral solution or supplement”, and participants are promised they will acquire “the knowledge to help heal many people of this world’s terrible diseases”.

There was a time early on in my life when I spent a significant amount of time in the company of juvenile delinquents. During that period I met a number of “adult” crooks and hustlers. Not as adept as, say, pimps for our fake president; but, still – they loved religious hustles. For the same reasons religious hustlers always do. Built-in cover as some kind of True Believer. Ready and willing to accept every penny they could grab from the gullible.

Which employer will be screwed the most by Trump’s trade policies?

Our dipsh*t fake president is trying his hardest to increase the price of consumer goods to American working folks. No need to repeat his lies and rationales for policy and plunder. True Believers will ignore any attempt at clarity. Americans with some understanding of what globalized economics means for consumer scale and income already know what I’m talking about.

I just wanted to offer this map – and a “Thank You” to Barry Ritholtz for offering it in his newsletter – to illustrate where families in this nation go to shop. You can figure out what will happen if our proto-fascist-in-charge gets his way. Costs rise. Prices rise. Folks who can afford that the least have the most to lose. And the company whose business model is focussed deeply on that demographic – will be the conduit from the White House to our wallets.
