Some people can’t get over the Russia “collusion” hoax.
Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean is one of them.
CNS News reported on the latest manifestation of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Dean recently went on CNN and said if Russian President Vladimir Putin wants Alaska back, President Donald Trump “would give it to him today.”
Sharing his thoughts on the 2020 presidential race CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Dean remarked, “I used to say it all of the time, and now it has a new meaning, but if you are not tough enough to get through this process, what are you going to do when Putin asks for Alaska back?”
“Well, unfortunately, we have a president who would give it to him today,” added Dean.
Michael W. Chapman noted the following:
“The Russian government sold the Alaska territory to the United States in 1867 for $7.2 million (approximately $125 million in 2020 dollars). It became the 49th state of the union on Jan. 3, 1959.”
Howard Dean was the Democrat governor of Vermont from 1991 to 2003.
Dean gained recognition in the Bush era for his antiwar stances and made a lot noise by nominally positioning himself as the anti-war candidate during the Democrat primaries of the 2004 election cycle.
Interestingly enough, Dean did not feel the Bern in 2016 and did not endorse fellow Vermont resident Bernie Sanders.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
