The New Unification Church

It is here that we started the New Church of New Hope on the web; to Celebrate the 21 years the author spent writing the book “The Revelation of Savation: the Regeneration of John”.

With it’s brother site http://www.myspace.com/theholyunicorns we have something not seen on the web yet; the writing and the music that go with it; the Book and the Song of the Lamb; to fulfill the Prophecy of the Gospel in the Testimony of Jesus in the Revelation: the Sword in the Stone; for the little child who leads us at the end is Arthur; but he rises from the River of Fire in the City of St. Francis like the Phoenix itself.

The Rebirth of Jim Crow: the reborn KKK and their Evil Racist Violent Shadow: The Rise of full Trumpery with Nazism in America

A Refresher Course

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

A Comparison in Perspectives

“….The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.,,,”

Christopher Witt Diamant

“….During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US…..”

Harvey Lewis

“…The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?….

Christopher Witt Diamant

“…Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.,,,”

Harvey Lewis

“….Are you waiting for impeachment?

Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns?

Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election?

Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land?

Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Breaking News: All roads lead back to you.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

To The 99%, Your Mission, Should You Decide To Accept It, Is To Remain Oblivious to The To Politics that Affect Your Life, and Just be Consumers of Whatever the 0.1%, Allows You to Receive, Be That Pollution, Shorter Life Spans, Lower Quality of Life, and Diminishing Capabilities of Awareness of What’s Going on Around You.

The United States Defense Budget, Which, I’ve Been Told, Takes Over 50% of The Overall Budget and Is Growing, Constantly, Every Year, Has Been, and Is, Destroying the Lives of Millions of People, In the Middle East, Delivering, Depleted Uranium and Other Weapons, There, Thousands of Miles Away, from The United States; While Saving the Burning Homes of American Citizens in Southern California, Puerto Rico, and Other Locations in America, Seems To Be A Lofty, High and Mighty, Proposition, Since It Seems, That, There Isn’t Much or Any Monies Allocated in The Defense Budget, To Actually, Save American Citizens, In the Lands of America, in the Aftermath of Disasters, While Another $80 Billion Dollars, Is Being Added To The Defense Budget, Just This Year. So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

America Needs To Have Other Stockpiles of Bombs and Weapons In That Region of The World, We Just Can’t Run Out of Bombs Again, Like We Did When We Dropped, 26,000 Bombs on the Country of Syria, Suffering, Under The Dictates, of Who, American’s are Told, is The Syrian Dictator Assad, That was Elected With 80% per cent of The Syrian Citizens Vote. We Just Don’t Happen to Know, For Sure, if Those Elections, Were Rigged Or Not, Like, They May Have Been Rigged, Here In America, The Land of the Free, and The Home of The Brave.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server.

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

The United States Defense Budget, Which, I’ve Been Told, Takes Over 50% of The Overall Budget and Is Growing, Constantly, Every Year, Has Been, and Is, Destroying the Lives of Millions of People, In the Middle East, Delivering, Depleted Uranium and Other Weapons, There, Thousands of Miles Away, from The United States; While Saving the Burning Homes of American Citizens in Southern California, Puerto Rico, and Other Locations in America, Seems To Be A Lofty, High and Mighty, Proposition, Since It Seems, That, There Isn’t Much or Any Monies Allocated in The Defense Budget, To Actually, Save American Citizens, In the Lands of America, in the Aftermath of Disasters, While Another $80 Billion Dollars, Is Being Added To The Defense Budget, Just This Year. So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

America Needs To Have Other Stockpiles of Bombs and Weapons In That Region of The World, We Just Can’t Run Out of Bombs Again, Like We Did When We Dropped, 26,000 Bombs on the Country of Syria, Suffering, Under The Dictates, of Who, American’s are Told, is The Syrian Dictator Assad, That was Elected With 80% per cent of The Syrian Citizens Vote. We Just Don’t Happen to Know, For Sure, if Those Elections, Were Rigged Or Not, Like, They May Have Been Rigged, Here In America, The Land of the Free, and The Home of The Brave.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

This is the good news. You have the power to claim your freedom, save your democracy, establish unity, and demand justice for all.

Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.

The Rebirth of Jim Crow: the reborn KKK and their Evil Racist Violent Shadow: The Rise of full Trumpery with Nazism in America

 

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Breaking News: All roads lead back to you.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

This is the good news. You have the power to claim your freedom, save your democracy, establish unity, and demand justice for all.

Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Breaking News: All roads lead back to you.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

This is the good news. You have the power to claim your freedom, save your democracy, establish unity, and demand justice for all.

Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.

 

Trumpism and the Realpolitik of Bernie Sanders: Can Ye Berners Handle the Truth of A Man Playing #PoliticsToWin and not Lose ? | Measure 144 ~ Missive #Three (after 909)

Bernie Sanders and the Realpolitik of This 2020 Presidential Campaign

From Bernie Sanders – regarding the released memo:

“Let’s be absolutely clear. The release of this Republican staff memo is a blatant attempt by House Republicans and the White House to disrupt the critically important investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and the possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The fact that Congressional Republicans and the White House would release a memo the FBI itself says is misleading is a sad example of a political party putting partisanship above patriotism. That this memo was first released to right-wing news outlets like FOX News and the Washington Examiner speaks to the political nature of this effort.

According to news reports President Trump himself has acknowledged that the release of the memo was designed to disrupt Robert Mueller’s investigation. It is critical that the American people learn the truth about what happened in 2016, and no political stunt should interfere with the special counsel’s work. What is the president afraid of?

Let’s make lots of public noise requesting Sanders speak out against the escalations with Russia, maybe through the hashtag #bernagainsthecoldwar.

Despite the more cynical attitudes about Bernie, I believe honesty and caring is what drives him, and he might come around on this issue if we remind him of the dangers of promoting the Russia narrative…”

 

………….The Occult Master Race ……………..of Nazi Eugenics

…………………………………………………………..Fascism Arrives in the USA

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult?

 

Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP. Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

The flight of millions of Dixiecrats into the GOP shifted the balance of power inside the party nationwide. Their fear-soaked, delusional fervor converted that institution from a conventional political party into a white nationalist cult.

The Party of Lincoln now exists to help Neo-Confederates win the Civil War politically, long after losing it on the battlefield.
Anyone evaluating Republican plans for tax policy, health care, climate change, immigration, or almost any other subject, will struggle to identify logical explanations for GOP positions.

Our politics has not always been so divorced from facts. It was possible to find room for logical arguments about the merits of Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. There were logical arguments on both sides of the 1986 tax increases Reagan realized had become necessary. People engaged in rational disagreements over priorities and potential consequences of those plans based on facts and reason.

No such basis exists for Republican policies now, explaining the absence of efforts at bipartisan agreement. Support for GOP plans is premised on cult allegiance and enforced by cult loyalty. Unbelievers would be no more likely to support Republican tax plans than to drink poison to catch a ride on a spaceship.

By all accounts, the members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were nice people who avoided harming others.

They kept their sickness inside their ranks.

By contrast, Republicans are forcing an entire country, and to a certain extent the world, to choke down their poisoned applesauce.

It is possible to see in Marshall Applewhite a suffering soul, tormented by mental illness, who drew a small number of similarly troubled individuals into his fatal orbit (pardon the pun).

It is increasingly difficult to extend the same sympathy to nice people like Paul Ryan. We don’t look back at Pol Pot or Jefferson Davis as “troubled souls” because the scale of the harm they inflicted obscures any sympathy.

Those who survive the poison will one day look back on Republicans of this era with a similar disgust.

Chris Ladd, former GOP Precinct Committeeman, author of “The Politics of Crazy” and creator of PoliticalOrphans.

“…..On the night of March 23, 1997, Marshall Applewhite prepared to achieve his life’s mission. He had already supervised the successful “evacuation” of several followers. The leader of the Heaven’s Gate cult would be the last of the chosen few to join the alien spacecraft trailing the Hale-Bopp Comet speeding past the Earth.

As he mixed a lethal dose of phenobarbital into his apple sauce, did he experience doubt? Did he wonder whether his psychiatrists had been right? Maybe there were no aliens waiting to whisk him away. He had failed to uncover any empirical evidence to support his worldview.

Perhaps that was because his worldview was flawed and false. No, he probably ate his poison and slipped the bag over his head with a smile on his face.

Republican Roy Moore, removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for his erratic behavior and banned from the mall for harassing teenage girls, has cloaked his campaign for the Senate in the language of “spiritual warfare.”

As such, he is the most apt representative of the Republican Party in our age of cult politics.

Moore is pitching himself as God’s candidate and his voters are slopping it up like poisoned applesauce. The party of “family values” is about to send a known sexual predator to the Senate because God wants them to.

This would be startling, except they already used the same reasoning to put a known sexual predator in the White House.

The same magical reasoning infects Republicans tax reform plans. We are in the eighth year of continuous job growth, the eighth year of economic expansion, and the eighth year of a head-spinning stock market boom. Corporate profits are at record levels and the economy has been redlining at full-employment for almost three years.

By any marginally credible economic reasoning, this would be an ideal moment to raise taxes, curb debt, make investments in public infrastructure, and just generally do the things one does at the peak of a long economic expansion.

At this moment, why are Republicans trying to slash taxes for the wealthy? Why would someone castrate themselves and commit suicide? Because that’s what the cult demands.

There are no bright economic minds suggesting that this is a good idea.

There is no difference of opinion among sane, credible people about whether America needs a massive tax cut for the rich.

An effort by Republican leaders to claim support among economists devolved into unabashed lying.

One of the “economists” listed as a supporter, Gil Sylvia, has yet to be identified and may not even exist. When one of the president’s minions pitched this idiotic tax plan to a panel of American CEO’s – men who will be getting fat tax cuts – they balked. In public.

On camera. Director Cohn’s stunned response after soliciting their backing should be etched on the tombstone of the former Party of Lincoln, “Why aren’t the other hands up?”

Cohn didn’t pause to hear their answer, because that isn’t how a cult works. Like a Soviet Commissar, he wasn’t soliciting feedback but measuring loyalty. He noted the disbelief of the apostates and simply moved on in righteous oblivion.

No reasoning accessible on the plane of logical thought supports this plan, just like no one outside the cult would ever let Roy Moore make decisions on their behalf.

Tax cuts, along with slashing government services, ending government support for health insurance, burning more coal, and a whole collection of other loony ideas, are now unconsidered articles of faith. Republican Jesus wants a tax cut. The faithful will comply.

Nothing in traditional Republican thought made this descent into madness inevitable.

In fact, most of what passes for current Republican orthodoxy contradicts the party’s ideological heritage.

Just twenty-five years ago, when Roy Moore was trolling the sidelines at homecoming for sweet young things, he was a member of the Democratic Party.

At the same time, Elizabeth Warren was a Republican. Something happened, and it had nothing at all to do with the traditional priorities of the Republican or Democratic parties.

Countries experience moments like this from time to time. We are long overdue for such a crisis, as our last major partisan breakdown occurred in the 1850’s.

Faced with tumultuous cultural, technological and economic upheaval, political systems may find themselves bottlenecked, unable to keep pace with evolutionary demands. Parties and ideologies are contorted into strange shapes under the pressure of rapid transformation.

Communism, for example, began as a ruthlessly empirical, atheistic approach to politics and economics. Influenced by the turmoil of the 20th century and the urgency of revolutionary demands, it quickly took on the trappings of a fanatical religion.

By the time the Khmer Rouge unleashed their wave of slaughter on Cambodia, Communism had devolved into little more than ideological window dressing for a tribal death cult. Ideology does not constrain fanatics.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult? Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP.

On camera. Director Cohn’s stunned response after soliciting their backing should be etched on the tombstone of the former Party of Lincoln, “Why aren’t the other hands up?”

Cohn didn’t pause to hear their answer, because that isn’t how a cult works. Like a Soviet Commissar, he wasn’t soliciting feedback but measuring loyalty. He noted the disbelief of the apostates and simply moved on in righteous oblivion.

No reasoning accessible on the plane of logical thought supports this plan, just like no one outside the cult would ever let Roy Moore make decisions on their behalf.

Tax cuts, along with slashing government services, ending government support for health insurance, burning more coal, and a whole collection of other loony ideas, are now unconsidered articles of faith. Republican Jesus wants a tax cut. The faithful will comply.

Nothing in traditional Republican thought made this descent into madness inevitable.

In fact, most of what passes for current Republican orthodoxy contradicts the party’s ideological heritage.

Just twenty-five years ago, when Roy Moore was trolling the sidelines at homecoming for sweet young things, he was a member of the Democratic Party.

At the same time, Elizabeth Warren was a Republican. Something happened, and it had nothing at all to do with the traditional priorities of the Republican or Democratic parties.

Countries experience moments like this from time to time. We are long overdue for such a crisis, as our last major partisan breakdown occurred in the 1850’s.

Faced with tumultuous cultural, technological and economic upheaval, political systems may find themselves bottlenecked, unable to keep pace with evolutionary demands. Parties and ideologies are contorted into strange shapes under the pressure of rapid transformation.

Communism, for example, began as a ruthlessly empirical, atheistic approach to politics and economics. Influenced by the turmoil of the 20th century and the urgency of revolutionary demands, it quickly took on the trappings of a fanatical religion.

By the time the Khmer Rouge unleashed their wave of slaughter on Cambodia, Communism had devolved into little more than ideological window dressing for a tribal death cult. Ideology does not constrain fanatics.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult? Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP.

Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

The flight of millions of Dixiecrats into the GOP shifted the balance of power inside the party nationwide. Their fear-soaked, delusional fervor converted that institution from a conventional political party into a white nationalist cult. The Party of Lincoln now exists to help Neo-Confederates win the Civil War politically, long after losing it on the battlefield.

Anyone evaluating Republican plans for tax policy, health care, climate change, immigration, or almost any other subject, will struggle to identify logical explanations for GOP positions.

Our politics has not always been so divorced from facts. It was possible to find room for logical arguments about the merits of Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. There were logical arguments on both sides of the 1986 tax increases Reagan realized had become necessary. People engaged in rational disagreements over priorities and potential consequences of those plans based on facts and reason.

No such basis exists for Republican policies now, explaining the absence of efforts at bipartisan agreement. Support for GOP plans is premised on cult allegiance and enforced by cult loyalty. Unbelievers would be no more likely to support Republican tax plans than to drink poison to catch a ride on a spaceship.

By all accounts, the members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were nice people who avoided harming others. They kept their sickness inside their ranks.

By contrast, Republicans are forcing an entire country, and to a certain extent the world, to choke down their poisoned applesauce. It is possible to see in Marshall Applewhite a suffering soul, tormented by mental illness, who drew a small number of similarly troubled individuals into his fatal orbit (pardon the pun).

It is increasingly difficult to extend the same sympathy to nice people like Paul Ryan. We don’t look back at Pol Pot or Jefferson Davis as “troubled souls” because the scale of the harm they inflicted obscures any sympathy. Those who survive the poison will one day look back on Republicans of this era with a similar disgust.
