Flashback: Mitt Romney Loves L. Ron Hubbard

Published

on

A U.S. Senate Candidate from Utah revealed a curious fact on the presidential campaign trail in 2012.

“Actually, the one by L. Ron Hubbard,” Mitt Romney responded when asked about his favorite novel. “I’m not in favor of his religion by any means but he wrote a book called ‘Battlefield Earth’ that was a very fun science fiction book.”

Hubbard was the founder the of the Church of Scientology. He holds the Guinness World Record for most published works by one author. Much of his fictional writing, including “Battlefield Earth,” influenced the doctrines of Scientology. In fact, the book was rendered into a horrible movie in which John Travolta, perhaps the most famous Scientologist, played the lead role.

Some themes from Scientology run parallel with “Battlefield Earth.”

For example, one group in the book uses electroshock therapy in order to maintain control. Hubbard frequently claimed that psychiatrists were wrong for labelling electroshock therapy ineffective, and claimed in Scientology that they did so in order to maintain control.

One supporting character in the book is described as having been shaped by the views of his mother. His mother was a member of a resistance group, referred to as a “church,” and much like the Church of Scientology, it opposed psychiatry.

Romney is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, better known as Mormons.

Sarah Palin Considering Primary Challenge to RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski

Talk about an upgrade.

Published

on

Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is considering a 2022 primary challenge to liberal Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Murkowsi is currently one of two nominal Republican Senators who has declined to support a tentative Trump administration nominee for the Supreme Court. She also was the only Republican not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in 2018.

Palin addressed Murkowski’s refusal to support conservative nominees for the Supreme Court in a set of three videos she uploaded to her Instagram page on Thursday. In subtle reference to a possible primary challenge, she pointed at her house in Wasilla, Alaska, mentioning that she’d be potentially willing to move away from the community to Washington D.C.

If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and do what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” said Palin to Murkowski in the video.

She referenced a notable campaign quip from 2008, when smug liberal pundits had mocked the vice presidential candidate for saying that she “can see Russia from her house.” (The assertion is more or less true, if not expressly literal- islands belonging to the Russian Federation can be seen from Alaska’s Diomede Islands.)

I can see 2022 from my house!” said the former Alaska Governor, referring to the next election in which the NeverTrump Senator would be held to account in an Alaska Republican primary.

Palin has always been a staunch conservative, even to the point of falling out of the good graces of globalist liberal John McCain’s elite political network after the 2008 election. She’d doubtlessly be a very strong candidate in a 2022 senatorial campaign.
