The Tiny Tyrant is more than a little too fond of Curtis Ellis, a former writer for that bastion of batshit, WorldNetDaily. Ellis is now being considered to head up the Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs. [Bloomberg].
“The little-known deputy undersecretary position at ILAB is considered an essential piece of the White House push to restore U.S. manufacturing jobs by cracking down on labor abuses overseas,” Penn writes. “Ellis is currently part of the Labor Department’s beachhead team and is overseeing the department’s trade policy. He has already been attending ILAB meetings and representing the bureau to foreign governments as a temporary political appointee.”
This is a serious problem for all the regular reasons, but in the case of Ellis, there’s so much more. He is convinced that multinational elites are out to run the world, installing a small, hidden, anonymous cabal of elites. All these nefarious elites, of course, are in turn run by … Lucifer! This is just so old anymore. They need a new villain.
1. (often used with a plural verb) the choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons.
2. (used with a plural verb) persons of the highest class: Only the elite were there.
3. a group of persons exercising the major share of authority or influence within a larger group: the power elite of a major political party.
It’s beyond me, the constant talk of elites among the religious reich, and uber-conservatives. How do they manage to forget they have the major share of wealth and power? They are the elite, alright, the elite baddies.
Along with WorldNetDaily, Ellis also has ties to Breitbart, the outlet formerly run by Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon.
In an interview last year with “Trunews” host Rick Wiles, Ellis reflected many of Bannon’s ultranationalist views and Trump’s love of Vladimir Putin, and expressed his view that a group of satanic elites is intent on gaining world domination.
Multinational elites, Ellis said, want to create “global tyranny where a small cabal of anonymous, hidden elites rule the world.”
Ellis added that this secret global cabal is a “Luciferian” and “satanic” group that elevates materialism over the spiritual world, pointing to the installation of a replica of the Arch of Baal, which was destroyed by ISIS, in New York.
“ISIS, they did destroy the archway to the temple of Baal,” Wiles said. “I guess if there’s any redeeming value to ISIS, I guess you can credit them for bringing down the Temple of Baal.”
Oh yes, Baal, the godthorn in the side of the psychopathic Yahweh. Lots of people in the bible died because they preferred Baal, God of Ekron, over Yahweh, and that bloodthirsty shit didn’t like competition, no. So not only does this idiot believe in one god of the bible, he believes in one of the other ones, too. Great.
That Lucifer sure gets around. Him and Soros both. Weird…
Hahahahaha, oh, I know. I really do wonder how it is that Christians don’t realize how much they paint their god to be the most incredibly ineffectual creature ever.
Also they used the phrase ‘redeeming qualities of ISIS’. They really suck at this warring religions stuff.
I confess, that bit did make me laugh!
Has anybody ever seen Soros and Lucifer in the same room together? Just askin’…
I’m pretty sure the batshit contingent has been trying to figure that one out for some time. :D
I have too many things to finish tonight to giggle about things like Lucifer and Soros never showing up to the same cocktail party, ever, in the history of the entire world (all 4000 years of it), or at least never being in the same room simultaneously. “Lucifer exits, Soros enters; Soros exits, in comes Lucifer a few minutes later! …! By god, something must be going on!” But thanks anyway! :D
First, catch your Lucifer…
Has anyone ever seen Lucifer at a cocktail party? Or anywhere else?

I knew a car named Lucifer who slept on one of my blazers, once. I changed his name to “damnit”

He means capitalists, right?
Whoa, Marcus, you know some weird cars!
Just how big are your closets? Hahahaha. I know, I know, but it’s too good of a typo to let pass.
Marcus Ranum says
I typed my comment on my phone instead of mu laptop! Sorry about that!!
The cat in question was a white angora and the jacket was my favorite slate-blue harris tweed. It took me an hour and a roll of masking tape to get that furmonster’s taint off of it!

You could have saved some hair-removal-time by bringing Lucifer to the meeting, and holding him in your lap and stroking him whilst delivering your wisdom…
Ice Swimmer says
Calling a cat “car” ithn’t that far off. They think they’re first on the list, ahead of the rest, anyway.
That cat’s name would have been changed to much more than ‘damnit’ in my case, aaaaargh!
I did not think it odd that a car was named Dammit. A friend of mine’s car had that name. Whenever the light turned green, he would shout, “Go, Dammit!”
One of the qualities of ISIS that the American religious extremists are grateful for is their habitual murder of gay people. It allows the extremists to say, “Well, at least we’re better than ISIS!” Yes, dear. Only wishing you could murder me is better than actually murdering me.
I understand the logic being employed here. Yes, it would be awful if elite devil-worshippers created a global tyranny where a small cabal of anonymous, hidden elites rule the world. Therefore we must make sure that it is the elite capitalist Christians who create a global tyranny where a small cabal of anonymous, hidden elites rule the world. That, of course, would be so much better.
No, that’s not unusual. It would be unusual if the car lay down and shed hair all over your favourite jacket.

Dammit, Caine, your headline made me think this was going to be a fun story about the Temple of Satan people trolling religious privilege again. Sadly it’s just more festering assholery in that “you thought it was bad already, didn’t you?” vein.
Hmmm, I bet the Temple of Satan folks could have some good fun with this guy. Maybe enough to distract him from doing any serious harm.
Johnny Vector, I’m so sorry! The fun stories don’t happen often enough.
Oh, asses like Ellis are so easily trolled, it wouldn’t be difficult, and that would be a great service on the part of all humankind.
Johnny Vector says
Ain’t that the truth. I resolved a while ago to post only positive stories on social media. It hasn’t worked out well. Every now and then there’s something good about renewable energy (Hey, Maryland just approved two offshore wind farms!) The rest is just one ghastly horseman after another (Oh, other than one tiny pilot project in Rhode Island, they will be the very first offshore wind farms in the entire country.)
Johnny Vector, I know. I resolved a while back to look for more positive stuff, and it’s thin on the ground.
