Notes on PP's dumb movie, pt 1

AKA Beyond Jordan

- I’ve gotta say, the aerial shots are enjoyable.

- PP says the goal of the trip is to visit as many biblical sites as possible. I do not believe that showcasing the holy land was ever the only goal of the film from the very beginning based on what I already know. Like the #FreePalestine he attached to the description of the film on Youtube.

- PP isn’t even 100% sure the Israeli govt will let him in.

- Watching PP and Roger Jimenez joke about all of the countries PP has been banned from is eye roll worthy. It’s not really something to be proud of.

- Airplane shots are pure filler. We get a shot of a random Jewish guy donning tefillin on the plane.

- They let PP in. It’s almost as if he’s not as important and (in)famous as he thinks he is. 🙄

- The generic ~eastern~ music is predictably here to remind us we’re in the Middle East.

- PP washes his face with water from the Jordan river. He says it’s kind of salty.

- Listening to Jimenez preach at Herod’s fortress is such a snooze fest.

- We see the Dead Sea and a member of PP’s entourage points out how there is all this salt on the shore, but the first thing I see is litter. PP dives in headfirst and gets salt in his eyes. They all then proceed to float in the Dead Sea like you’re supposed to, and it’s supposedly one of the weirdest things EVER. 🙄

- They go to the Church of the Nativity and PP manages to avoid making an ass of himself on camera. We get to hear the tour guide sing the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic which his kinda neat.

- PP gives Bethlehem’s water a rave review.

- PP moans about all of the idolatry in Bethlehem and the “false religion.”

- I start passing skipping the mini sermons that come with each site around this point.

- At Petra PP talks about why he was hesitant to visit the holy land before now; He doesn’t support the “modern, fake state of Israel.” Blah, blah, blah. Then he goes into how all of the sites they’ve visited so far aren’t even in Israel. He makes it a point to tell the viewers that at this point, they haven't even gone to Israel and everything we’ve seen so far has been in Jordan or Palestine.

- They hit the rewind button to show us how this trip REALLY went. They arrived in Amman, Jordan and crossed into the West Bank.

I paused at this point because I'm tired and can only watch the Pisser for so long. The film is almost 2 hrs long. I can tell the focus is probably shifting from "look at all of these cool holy sites" to PP whinging about Israel real soon.

I'm not doing a part 2 because it would be pointless. It's just extra footage. I still stand by my belief that this film is meant to double as a political statement that is laughable because PP doesn't care about others, and doesn't have the critical thinking abilities to take on a subject like a geopolitical conflict in any meaningful way. I think we all know that already, though.

      Imo, her teeth, hair, and bones must be so fragile by now.

      At least two moms of mega families (11 each? I can't remember) discussed on this forum, Jaynee Lockwood and Nicole Naugler,  have had all of their teeth extracted. It takes a lot to grow babies and this is what happens when you don't let your body recover, possibly don't have the best nutrition and zero regular dental care.  

      Jaynee would probably have had 13 - 15, but she ended up requiring a hysterectomy; don't recall the details. 

      Nicole and Joe, supposedly, stopped having sexy time, but at least Nicole has not had another pregnancy since the one that ended in a still birth.   If Joe had two brain cells still capable of synapse, he'd get his tube tied.  I'm gonna guess he'll get another woman pregnant, because that would be so perfectly on-brand for a Naugler.

      Gary was live from the truck, at "almost noontime, amen - the day, tell ya raht now, don't take long for tahm to come 'n' go, amen? 11:35, took mah wahf up here to see her family amen the kids praise the Lord."

      I wonder if that means that Becky had a visit with her kids - hard to say, with Gary's babble.

      Gary's important and unique message is interspersed with loud directions from his GPS.

      Sunday's coming, and you'd better go to church, "what God says is a whole lot more important than what Governor whoever says."

      The church, of course, must be King James only, and this spew follows:

      "Some people believe that's there's uh more than one Bahble, well, ah'm glad God didn't need all them thangs, amen? Ah'm glad God knew what He wrote, and how He wrote it, and how He had the English-speakin' people to write it for the English-speakin' people, amen, ah know that, uh, uh, Spanish people have to have a little bit different 'n' ah understand that the uh Filipinos and the different ones 'n' ah'm gonna tell ya - for the English-speakin' people, there's only one Bahble, 'n' that one Bahble tells us to go ye in all the world, ah'm not Calvinism, ah don't believe that mess, ah don't have no kinda points in the Calvinism, ah just believe the book, ah believe what God said. God said to go tell 'em. AMEN!"

      Also, if you don't die and the Rapture doesn't come by tomorrow morning, go to church, unless you wake up tomorrow with Covid-19, in which case you should stay home and watch church on Facebook (WATCH IT, don't just turn it on!). And if you are afraid to go out, get rid of your TV. Might as well get rid of the TV anyway, because "sodomy's takin' everything!"

      Have I mentioned that Gary thinks you should go to church?

      They didn't ask Gary to preach at the camp meeting, so I guess he needed to feed his addiction and do some preachifyin' in the Church of Henry Ford.

      No snark intended, but does Jill know who RBG is?  I mean I know she knows she was a SC Justice,  but does she grasp what she stood for?

      Jill’s post was a re-post from Republican Senator John Boozman from Arkansas. I think some Republicans are publicly “taking the high road” by offering condolences while privately feeling gleeful about their potential opportunity to replace her.

      I have to assume yes, and especially by now. Posting about her like that at all, especially using a sort of nickname like her initials, to me signals some familiarity beyond just what her job was. And after about 13 hours of that post being in her stories I bet she’s gotten lots of messages from “concerned conservatives” about it, so if she didn’t know then she knows now. But the post remains up..

      Yeah, that divorce and re-marriage is worse that murder is all sort of fucked-up.
