Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20
TMZ.com reports that
Lil Nas X is fully leaning into his new hellish aesthetic — teaming up with an idea org to release “Satan Shoes” … this on the heels of his polarizing music video on the same subject.
The rapper/pop star is putting out a limited release of Nike sneakers that are all about the Prince of Darkness and his kingdom … right down to the box artwork and even the shoe design itself, which features a pentagram emblem sitting on the laces.
The shoe body is a Nike Air Max ’97, which MSCHF — the company behind this campaign — has reinvented with Nas X’s new ‘Montero’ song and video in mind. It’s got a bible scripture emblazoned on the side, Luke 10:18, which references Satan’s banishment from heaven.
There’s also a 666 reference toward the back of the shoe … with another number in front of it, alluding to which limited unit it is. Word is, MSCHF/Nike are only dishing out 666 of these puppies to the public … so if you have 6/666, that seems to mean you got the 6th model.
Here’s the kicker … apparently, these shoes will contain one drop of human blood somewhere along the soles. And no, not the metaphorical blood, sweat and tears of the factory workers who will presumably put these together … like, actual plasma-filled red stuff.
Unclear whose blood exactly is being used for this … but it’s provocative, without a doubt.
Of course, the collab follows Nas X dropping a visual project for his track ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ … which got a lot of mixed reactions this past week.
It depicts him descending into hell and cozying up to Lucifer himself … and giving him an erotic lap dance, no less. Some loved it, saying it’s a celebration of Nas X’s sexuality. Others, including some parents, felt it was over the top and NSFW … especially considering Nas X’s younger audience, aka children, who came to know/love him through ‘Old Town Road.’
Seems LNX is embracing the famed Jordan “f*** them kids” mantra. He’s all in on H-E-double hockey sticks. The shoes will retail for over $1,000, and hit the market March 29.
For those of you who do not remember or even know who Lil Nas X is, if you have children or grandchildren you have probably heard his biggest contribution to American Pop Culture so far, a mishmash of rap and country music, a collaboration with Billy Ray Cyrus, which became a smash hit back in 2019,
For whatever reason, American kids fell in love with it.
And now, this idol of American youth has decided to glorify the very embodiment of evil: Satan himself.
In September of 2013, YouGov.com conducted a poll which showed that almost six in ten Americans believe that Satan is real, and more than half of Americans believe that people can be possessed by demons.
Is all this upheaval which average American Families are attempting to shield their children from with no help from rhe Biden-Harris Administration, “Antifa”, “The Far Left”, or whatever you want to call the Anti-American immature idiots, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?
If you look at 80% of the movies that Tinsel Town produces for public consumption nowadays, they seek to glorify the Powers of Darkness….and they seem to be very popular with young Americans.
Why is the Occult, including Satan and his demons, so fascinating to impressionable young Americans?
People who take the existence of Satan lightly, eventually wind up in some sort of trouble, and those who worship Satan wind up in even greater trouble.
Back in the 1960s, the late, beautiful actress Jayne Mansfield posed for a series of publicity pictures with the Head Priest of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey. The pictures showing her with LaVey, included several shots of taking their version of Communion, simulating drinking blood from a goblet, offered by the priest. She even wore a pink and black medallion of Satan and the goat-headed Baphomet to the 1966 San Francisco Film Festival. Later, the beautiful actress died in a freak car accident in which she was decapitated.
Now, far be it from me to link one to the other. That is up for you to decide for yourself.
Is all this upheaval our nation is currently facing, caused by the Democrats, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their young minions, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?
John Adams, the second President of these United States, delivered the following message to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts on October 11, 1798:
While our country remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world; while she continues sincere, and incapable of insidious and impious policy, we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays I have received from Major-General Hull and Brigadier, General Walker your unanimous address from Lexington, animated with a martial spirit, and expressed with a military dignity becoming your character and the memorable plains on which it was adopted. In the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candor, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the World; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
The reason that our nation is facing the difficulties we are is the belief by those who proclaim themselves to be the “smartest people in the room”, that they are above the old-fashioned, passe notions of morality and ethics, good and evil, and the Sovereignty of God.
In the opinion of this Christian American living in the Heartland, they have made a grave mistake.
Evil exists and these fools opened the door to Satan in our society a long time ago, just like Lil Nas X is now.
When it all comes crashing down around them, what are they going to say?
The Devil made me do it?
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:12

APNews.com reports that
Nike’s sales have only grown since it seized attention with its ad campaign featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. So, the shoemaker deferred to its star endorser when he raised concerns over a sneaker featuring an early American flag.
Nike pulled the Air Max 1 USA shoe, which included a Revolutionary-era U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle on the heel, after Kaepernick told the company he and others found the flag offensive because of its connection to an era of slavery, according to the Wall Street Journal. The shoe had been sent to retailers to go on sale this week for the July Fourth holiday, according to the Journal.
The decision caused an instant backlash among conservatives who accused Nike of denigrating U.S. history, with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey tweeting that he is asking the state’s Commerce Authority to withdraw financial incentives promised to Nike to build a plant in the state.
Others expressed surprise that the symbol known as the “Betsy Ross” flag, so named after the beloved Philadelphia woman credited with designing it, could be considered offensive. Although some extremist groups appear to have appropriated the flag, it is not widely viewed as a symbol of hate, and is used in museums that focus on 18th century U.S. history.
The Anti-Defamation League does not include it in its database of hate symbols. Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow for the ADL’s Center on Extremism, said extremist groups have occasionally used it, but the flag is most commonly used by people for patriotic purposes.
“We view it as essentially an innocuous historical flag,” Pitcavage said. “It’s not a thing in the white supremacist movement.”
Nike said in statement that “it pulled the shoe based on concerns that it could unintentionally offend and detract from the nation’s patriotic holiday.” The company pushed back against criticism that the decision was being “anti-American.”
“Nike is a company proud of its American heritage and our continuing engagement supporting thousands of American athletes including the U.S. Olympic team and U.S. Soccer teams,” Nike said.
In a related story, The Hill.com reports that
MSNBC will not air the entirety of President Trump’s planned “Salute to America” on July Fourth, instead opting to carry on with regularly scheduled news programming that may include clips of the event.
A spokesperson for the network told Politico it potentially will air parts of the event during Thursday’s newscasts, which will continue normally with “The Beat with Ari Melber” airing live at 6 p.m. ET and “Hardball with Chris Matthews” at 7 p.m.
The network did not immediately return The Hill’s request for more information on its Thursday schedule.
Fox News, meanwhile, will air the entirety of Trump’s special July Fourth celebration during a live two-hour “Special Report” with Mike Emanuel as guest host that is set to broadcast at 6 p.m.
I know that you are wondering what these two reports have in common, gentle readers.
Allow me to explain…
This nation is still experiencing a Political Division of a magnitude never before seen.
A Political Division which came to fruition during the 8 long arduous years of the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
Colin Kaepernick started his “crusade” back then.
The NFLPA was not protesting during those years, however. Just Colin Kaepernick and he did it to impress his Muslim girlfriend, a poor choice which led to his present unemployment, along with the cold hard fact that he is actually not that good of a quarterback.
MSNBC, like CNN and the rest of the Main Stream Media, long ago abandoned any pretense of objectivity in order to become the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.
Now that the Democratic Party has become nothing but a Far Left, Marxism-embracing, American-hating, special interest groups butt-kissing bunch of self-absorbed ungrateful American-haters, they have lost all credibility with average Americans.
So, why don’t clowns like Maddow, Tapper, and Acosta, their co-workers at the Propaganda Machines known as CNN and MSNBC and their masters, the Democratic Party, understand that attacking President Trump and Traditional American Values, such as will be on display during the 4th of July Celebration in Washington, DC, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is why they continue to lose viewers and voters?
Simple. They are blinded by their egotistical rage.
In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.
From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, including Nancy Pelosi, Chuck “U” Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama and all of his minions, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.
Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into a Far Left Political Party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.
What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.
While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living, believes in God and Country, and supports President Trump, is a Jingoistic imbecile.
The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.
By the way, according to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.
In other words, being guilty of “patriotism”, i.e., believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.
And, that is fuel that drives idiots like Colin Kaepernick and the bosses at MSNBC to act like ungrateful imbeciles.
This ol’ cracka has any idea for y’all:
If you don’t like it here…LEAVE!
…and take the House Democrats with you.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!

FoxBusiness.com reports that
Nike selected the controversial former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as the new face of the athletic wear company’s “Just Do It” campaign, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
“Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt,” Kaepernick, who has been with Nike since 2011 though hasn’t played on an NFL team since the 2016 season, posted on Twitter on Monday afternoon.
The now-free agent quarterback, who led the Niners to Super Bowl XLVII where they fell to the Baltimore Ravens, stirred up controversy when he began kneeling during the playing of the national anthem prior to NFL games, beginning in the summer of 2016, to protest racial injustices against the African-American community.
Many other players have joined the movement since it began, which eventually led to NFL owners voting to enact a national anthem policy for the 2018 season. Under the new guidelines announced in May, players and others associated with the NFL who are on the sideline must stand during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner, while those who choose not to stand must remain in the locker room.
The policy has been on hold since July under an agreement with the NFL Players Association, and while the league and players union have tried to come to a deal that pleases both sides, it doesn’t appear likely that the two parties will have an agreement before the start of the 2018 season on Thursday.
The movement also caught the attention of President Trump, who lambasted Kaepernick and other players who participated in the pregame protests. Last September, the president called on NFL owners to fire any player who kneeled during the national anthem.
Television ratings declined nearly 10% across all networks during the 2016-2017 regular season, according to data from Nielsen, though that cannot be blamed solely on the anthem controversy. An average NFL game was watched by 1.6 million fewer people in 2017 versus the prior year— an overall decline from 16.5 million to 14.9 million, according to ESPN. Ratings saw a similar decline last season, falling 8%, the sports network reported. Still, 20 of the 30 top-rated shows on television last year were NFL games, according to Nielsen data.
Let’s get something straight before we go any further: Colin Kaepernick has sacrificed ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. He was a mediocre player, at best.
Our Brightest and Best who defend our Sovereign Nation every day and those who stand in that Thin Blue Line, who protect our cities and towns are the ones who sacrificially lay their lives on the line every day.
What Nike is doing is taking a gamble probably based on some sort of marketing survey which found that a significant number of those who support the NFL Players taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem purchase Nike tennis shoes and other products.
In the minds of the Nike Corporate Brain Trust, they have made a strategic move designed to maximize their revenue by appealing to their customer base.
The problem with their decision is that they are alienating any potential customers who think that Kaepernick and the millionaires in the NFL who are still taking a knee during the National Anthem are a bunch of ungrateful idiots.
Back in September of 2016, a few weeks after Kaepernick started his protest, CBSSports.com reported that
In one poll, which was conducted by Reuters, 72 percent of Americans said that they thought Kaepernick’s behavior was unpatriotic. Another 61 percent said that they do not “support the stance Colin Kaepernick is taking and his decision not to stand during the national anthem.”
Of course, the whole thing mushroomed after that, with the Main Stream Media gushing about how noble that the protest by the NFL Players was, while ignoring the fact that if these spoiled millionaire athletes really cared about the “community”, they would have followed the example of the legendary Jim Brown and would have actually been working with and mentoring young men in the community during the off-season.
The Nike Corporate Symbol, which is recognized around the world, is called “The Swoosh”.
In basketball, a “swoosh” is when you shoot the ball and it enters the basketball net dead center, without touching the rim.
This Marketing Strategy which Nike has unveiled is most definitely NOT a “Swoosh”.
They missed by a country mile.
