This question posed to the American president at a White House briefing received an abominable response that made me remember thinking “potus45 has no heart at all”.
That’s a nasty question and you are a bad reporter.
We may have thought that an existential crisis can wake the dead but not even the mounting infection rates of covid-19 and the need for discipline are revealing the humanity in the executive branch of the US government. I told you so.
America’s biggest mistake is connected to its rape of North America and Africa. The religious movements that have risen over the two centuries show that the US is obsessed with Israel, not because of love for an oppressed people – today’s America couldn’t care less if an Islamic government was elected in Israel – but because of the convenience of adopting the Israeli standard. Australia, Canada, and the United States have not recognized that they cannot move in and take over a country because God needs a genocide to prepare the world for salvation or some other destiny.
Why would Abraham not see right round the world when told he is owner of all he could see and he being convinced that he was going to have descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky?
14. And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now yours eyes, and look from the place where you are northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15. For all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed for ever. 16. And I will make your seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall your seed also be numbered.
Most nations will not admit to the rotten bones in their history, and doing so is now suicidal. When nations (or corporations) admit to their malfeasance they open the floodgates of lawsuits that can empty their coffers in a flash.
American defense of the state of Israel is not a moral choice or human rights exercise. American dependence on oil and its alliance with Arab powers are far more important. Guess who will stand with Israel when international army moves to attack the Jewish state? Nobody.
For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses ransacked, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
America is stuck in foreign scandals and undercover adventures and the Republican party has the patent for governing by warchest. It is what they know best: murder and mayhem. Locked into Arab oil and misbehavior and guaranteeing the survival of the state of Israel is destiny that ends with America joining everyone to attack Israel.
Amber waves of grain are hard to find in the land where Jews are thought to want to replace their rescuers and gracious host. That justice is dead in America we are quick to say because we saw the chief justice of the Supreme Court sit in the chair in the impeachment trial of the most corrupt president in history and said nothing as the Republican senators perjured themselves.
The good ole boys
The good old boys network has been in full swing since Mueller found a vast criminal enterprise engulfing the White House. More than enough crime has stained the fingers of potus45 and a growing number of his “generals”, all those good men and patriot pathetics who have either pleaded guilty or or were convicted of crimes. Were it not for the justice department rule that the president not be indicted for regular crimes the president would be serving several long sentences and paying fines for his tax evasion and violation of women’s rights.
Justice begins the day the gloating bigot leaves office.
Where on the planet might the chief offender choose to hide from American justice?
Little megomaniac potus45 does not see any courage in Mitt Romney. He only sees asskissers in the Republican majority who voted to cover up his criminal record. Mitt told us from the start that 45 is a con man. Yeah! Mitt was accurate.
Convinced that the fellowship of 20 something nations was not good enough the United Kingdom tries to carve a path for itself. At the same time the most thoughtful body on the planet, the United States Senate conducts a trial without witnesses and documents. These days are tumultuous indeed and indicate the depth of the decay that comes with human organizations. To use the terms from a famous lament and prophecy “The gold has dimmed” and the iron has rusted.
How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed! the stones of the sanctuary are poured out in the top of every street.
Gold represents the best of human governance
In the lament the gold has lost its character and secret things are on the streets (is public)
Britons were half-baked Europeans. They kept their pound and imperial measures out of selfish pride. It should not come as a surprise that some people want to be either in or out.
And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
Senators who do not know what a trial looks like are not surprising to me. We all expect elected officials to be literate and committed to decency and excellence. The Republican dominated Senate is showing itself to be dealers and experts in muck.
I’m taking Peter’s exhortation to heart afresh. After taking the audience that they needd to relent and believe he cautioned about his contemporaries.
And with many more appeals he solemnly warned and entreated them, saying, “Escape from this crooked generation.”
News from Hong Kong trickles out when it has to do with the noble protesters against the administration of Carrie Lam. The Financial Times is reporting that residents should brace for violence using IEDs and firearms.
The perpetrators of violent crimes are not likely to be the same people as those demanding real democratic change but the two groups (assuming there is a group responsible for the bombings) are in the same group to PRC. Next up for the antidemocratic governments: martial law.
