Greatest Speeches Ever: Julian Assange's Embassy Balcony Speech; ALSO...Is Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan a Satanist?? (I present the evidence, and allow you to make an informed decision), AND FINALLY David Hasselhoff performs "Rhinestone Cowboy" for the Pope

Hello again, true believers.  I'm Jimmy Fungus, and we are beginning today's post with one of's most famous segments, called...

Greatest Speeches Ever

Julian Assange speaking from the balcony of the  Ecuadorean embassy

This moment in history happened just a few days ago.  After Ecuador granted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange political asylum, it appeared that the British government might try to storm the embassy and arrest him anyway.  Assange felt compelled to stand atop the embassy blacony, and make this dramatic statement to supporters:

"On Wednesday night, after a threat was sent to this embassy and the police descended on the building, you came out in the middle of the night to watch over it and you brought the world’s eyes with you.

Inside the embassy, after dark, I could hear teams of police swarming up into the building through the internal fire escape. But I knew that there would be witnesses. And that is because of you.

If the UK did not throw away the Vienna convention the other night that is because the world was watching. And the world was watching because you were watching.

The next time somebody tells you that it is pointless to defend those rights we hold dear, remind them of your vigil in the dark before the Embassy of Ecuador."

Here is the speech in full below...

And now we examine the question...

Is Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan a Satanist??

a nifty side by side comparison of Paul Ryan and Anton LaVey's belief systems, I found on the internets

I am an impartial and objective investigative reporter, so I will not tell you how I would answer this question.  Instead, I will present to you, the reader, all the evidence you will need to come to an informed conclusion.

That quotes above are indeed accurate.  The influence Ayn Rand (author of "Atlas Shrugged" and kind of a big deal to many in the Tea Party political movement) and her philosophy had on Anton Lavey, the founder and High Priest of the Church of Satan, is well documented.

Paul Ryan's admiration for her is also a matter of public record.  Though he recently has tried to distance himself from Rand's beliefs,  he sounds pretty sincere about them in this 2009 campaign video...

Here is Ayn Rand in an interview with Mike Wallace explaining her philosophy in her own words...

And here is Anton Lavey explaining the philosophy of Satanism in his own words...

Sooo..I ask Paul Ryan a Satanist????  You make the call.

And NOW...the most exciting news of all!  I have made a new youtube video at my channel  entitled "David Hasselhoff Sings for the Pope."  Check it out below, and then tell all your friends, and just tell anyone else you see, just anywhere...on earth...

*sigh*  Well, dear ones, that will end another thrilling day at  Remember to tune in next time...same Fungus time...same Fungus channel....   or something like that.

Stay classy, Chicago.
