Oh Lord, it’s happening–the remanufacture of Trump by the Establishment. During the campaign, Trump and the Basilisk had nothing in common but their hair dye. Now, almost daily, he looks more like her.
He gets embarrassing. Regarding the alleged gassing in Syria, quoth Donald:
“When you kill innocent children, innocent babies — babies, little babies — with a chemical gas … that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line. … And I will tell you, that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me … my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much.”
God almighty. Who wrote this–a middle school girl with C’s in English, or the President of the United States? Did he retire to his bedroom for a good cry?
Apparently he ordered his missile strike without bothering to find out what happened. The usual suspects are driving him like a sports car.
The election was a choice between fetor and a lunatic. We chose the lunatic. Whether this was better than the alternative, we will never know, but Trump is going from bad to worse, or as the Mexicans say, de Guatemala a Guatepeor.
Does he believe this stuff? Is he naive enough to think that there was something unusually horrible about the attack? Horrible, yes, but not in the least unusual. Do you know what everyday, boring artillery does to children? Five-hundred-pound bombs? Hellfire rockets? Daily Mr. Trump’s military and his allies daily drop shrapnel-producing explosives on people, cities, towns, adults, children, weddings and goatherds in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Good draft-dodger that he was, he probably has never seen any of this. Good psychopath that he may be, he may not care
Here is a longish - and quite revealing - interview with the Pope's good friend, Jeffrey Sachs, a man we ignore at our peril. We bring it to your attention so that we can better understand the mindset of those who are committed to remolding the world to their own liking and in their own image.
In his exaltation of a "new world order", Mr Sachs, whose arrogance is really a sight to behold, minces few words as he lays out his vision for what he wishes to see in the very near future. For Catholics, it isn't pretty; for the sane, it isn't pretty. For Mr Sachs, it is just glorious.
Pope Francis is apparently a friend and confidant of Mr Sachs. Given what this papacy has been degenerating into this is hardly surprising. Yet still, it pays to understand what goes through the brain of people like Sachs, who is a well-connected man very much at home with the ruling elite who work behind-the-scenes to destroy the last vestiges of Christendom. The video is a bit over an hour.
An interesting article which goes into some depth about who it is in the Syrian mess that is rooting for the killing of its Christian population and who it is who is defending them.
If we talk much here about this terrible conflict it is because we hate injustice. It is really that simple.
From Russian Insider: Easter is the holiest day in the Christian calendar. For Christians, Easter is the ultimate victory of God over Satan; a permanent victory, a kind of cosmic check-mate.
But for Christians in Syria, this Easter has a special meaning: Victory over those who have sought, with western backing, to destroy them.
"Responsible" media outlets never speak of it, but anyone rooting for regime change in Syria also supports the murder of Christians. Syria is secular state that has been fighting terrorists and jihadists for the last six years. If Assad goes, Syria's Christians will cease to exist.
