The End of Trumps Trumpery: the Reality of Bernie Sanders and the Great Awakening

Adam Simulacra: The Current Circus: Rome if you Heave To

Looking out at the current Tableaux of seeing any real news being run out of cybertown by the Mass Media’s absolute enslavement to the Image of Donald, now dancing it’s way across the screen 24/7; and the MSM’s abject capitulation to every word of a lying worthless demagogue like Trump is sheer torture.

To add insult to the injury just watch the GOP’s media minions spin it like Agit-Prop Breitbart’s on crack, in their vain attempt of making Donald’s inevitable Crash and Burn into a somehow heroic act of a self-fulfilling Prophecy, a mythic one of his predestined divine martyrdom as the White Evangelical South’s “Jim Crow” Messiah betrayed by Liberals.

Seeing this scenario come to life “…is to witness a tissue of lies made into a mirage…“; one that is constructed before one’s own disbelieving eyes like a bad TV Info Commercial.

To watch the alcohol-fueled delusions of Rapid Rudy the Rabidly Lying Rabbit in the Surreal Spectacle of the Trump Crime Syndicate being dismantled piece by piece everyday is unintentional political entertainment, the kind that is currently being revealed by the Media before our horrified gaze duly noted; and how this Straw Man of the Trumps Paper Empire of Smoke and Mirrors it is now Spun by our industrious Rumpelstiltskin’s at Fox News into “Trump the Triumphant Rich GOP Elephant”, is then to see the creation of Mythic Gold: the making of Don the Con into the Right Wing’s Non-existent “Martyr” of Evangelical Faith: and writ large as Hell….

This is the enshrining of the Fairytale of the ongoing legend and story of the magically Perpetual Trump State of Political Victim-hood, where he Never Does Anything Wrong: Ever; obviously his missteps are due to the Liberal Medias’s “persecution of a Great Man of the People”, in reality it is a Diabolical Farce and the people are the Denizens of Dis; a Cynical and Cruel Joke at our expense at it’s most Ungainly: to where any absurdity that one can satirize about or lampoon is immediately dwarfed by the reality of the National Traga-comedy relentlessly manufactured by the wicked Men of Belial who control the the GOP and their Multimedia enablers in Washington DC, seemingly 25 hours a Day

The Trump apologists angling for Forgetful Voter = GOP Redemption through polite but relentlessly parroted Political Amnesia Spells whose real agenda is making everyone believe Trumps Signal Vision of a Privatized Hell on Earth is being destroyed by a Left Wing Takedown.

This is like seeing the entire National News Cycle that revolves around the endless train-wreck of the current Presidency now become a Crises Manufacturing Accomplice to the GOP Disinformation and Distraction Campaign; to protect the increasingly Vain and officially Vile Political Opportunist and Liar known to the world as the new reality star “Herr Trump

All this and the requisite inflammatory Media Habit of mindlessly repeating whatever heavily propagandized and incendiary speech of daily Trumpist Flim-Flam Demagoguery that spills out of Herr Drumpf’s Lie Machine of a mouth

It is this Faustian Bargain by the MSM that dominates the shameless moneymaking Whoredom of the entirely profit-besotted, Corporatized, and Monopolized Ratings-driven American Press, so much so that I am struck by how much the entire idea of what comprises the Truth has been seen to be almost completely driven from the Marketplace of Ideas: replaced with the Media-driven Spectacle at the Cyber Coliseum of Our Daily Indignation at Truth being thrown to the Wolves: starring Donald “All Publicity is Good Publicity” Trump.

One is immediately struck by the timely fitting of the saying,

“I don’t care what they say about me in the Papers, just as long as they spell my name correctly”,

For Trump, all that matters is that he is in the spotlight……..and that motive is surely the raison d’etre of Trump’s every waking moment, one that results in our daily immersion in Herr Trump’s endless Baptism of Bullshit that is willingly promulgated by CNN and NBC and all the rest of them…..and beyond the Shadow of any Doubt t about the ratings…. Ka-Ching !!! Dig in Kids !!!

With the morning’s tweets from our bloated Megalomaniac in his Vainglorious self-promoting Celebration of his Endless Narcissism once again co-opting the National Attention with his newest Outrageous Lies, ( vomited up On Cue every Morning from the White House as if he was fulfilling the conditions of a contract ); it is now totally obvious that America has entered into the Twilight of the Free Press and the Evisceration of the Charter of the First Amendment.

We are witnessing the collapse of Journalistic Integrity and the Fourth Estate Guardianship of the Truth by the Vigilance of our Independent Journalism that was once the envy of the World; as it has degenerated into the Trump World of Yellow Journalism masquerading as Serious Commentary; when all it is is Click-bait at the Cosmic Level; a Gaslit Blast by the Corporate Trumpet of The Evil of the Day……. now magnified for our Entertainment to the Heavens.

“….And make no mistake about it: this Daily Spectacle of Absolute Drivel has as much to do with real truth telling as the Puff Piece on Mohammed bin Salaman by David Pecker’s National Enquirer Publishing Empire has to do with the CIA showing the stunning State sponsored assassination of Washington Post writer and journalist Jamal Khashoggi by the Crown Prince was an absolute fact; carried out within a week right after Jared Kushner gave Prince Salman the Top Secret Intel…… for a reputed 100 million dollars as the going price….”

The Evil of the Day…..

“…The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda.

It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth….”

Prophetic Regard and the Realpolitik End of all Fascist Goal-driven Policy: the Annihilation of Truth

We can see that those who consider political process as the way to exalt the Ends by any means as Justified due to the Evil of the Day as ultraconservatives with this philosophy as their fully established SOP, those GOP operatives like Roger Stone having built a career out of such tactics….

Yet, as Christians and members of the Congregation of Faith looking askance at the present situation in America we must also integrate the facts as we perceive them in a much different Context than secular logic and conventional wisdom would have us do…seeing as how the events written about of the Great Tribulation spoken of in Daniel and the Gospel are plainly coming to pass, and thattaken together with the total corruption of our acting president Donald Trump, present a very real fulfillment of the Scripture of Truth that must weigh fully on the conscience of any real Christian believer or by the persons of any living Faith

My reason for this article today begins with the revealing of the true identity of Donald Trump written in the New Testament and even the Revelation itself, now put together here by linking that reality with what happened in America in the last few years when we saw the Awakening written of in Daniel and seconded by my Father in the Gospel with little room for any doubt.

Matthew 6:25-34
“..25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing?
26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
27  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28  And why take you thought for clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Therefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, How shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
33 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought of the things for itself.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof….”

The Final Subversion of the Devil and his Angels

Why 9/11 really happened, and Who Chose Donald Trump: the answer is in “the When”

 

It is only possible to see how far short of the truth the false narratives of the Evangelical Fundamentalists are if we are able to compare them with the real narrative that is present in the Book of Life of the Lamb….for the Revelation of Jesus Christ Unsealed is at once the Book of Life of the Lamb Opened.

It is why I must provide the concrete examples of how false prophets and false Christs like Putin with his anomalous “Fascist Christ” who try to claim things that are untrue and Practice the Subterfuge of trying to Forestall the Providence by False Scenarios of the their private interpretations of the Fulfillment of the Scripture

FRANCE PROTESTS:

POLICE THREATEN TO JOIN PROTESTERS,

DEMAND BETTER PAY AND CONDITIONS

The French government is desperately trying to keep its exhausted police force onside following weeks of violent protests demanding economic reforms, improved living standards and the resignation of President Emmanuel Macron.

On Wednesday, French officials met with police trade union leaders to work out a deal to soothe anger in law enforcement ranks regarding overwork, unpaid overtime and difficult working conditions, Le Monde reported.

 

Gilets jaunes France protests Paris police yellow vests

But some activists are calling on police to walk out on government negotiations, close down police stations and join the “gilets jaunes”—or yellow vest—protesters with whom they have been facing off since November 17.

Negotiations between three unions—Alliance, UNSA-Police and Unity-SGP-FO—and Interior Minister Christophe Castaner on Tuesday failed to reach a settlement.  As talks resumed on Wednesday, France 24 reported that activists were calling on forces across the country to commit to a “slowdown” and only respond to emergencies until the dispute had been settled.

Police have accumulated some 23 million hours of overtime that is yet to be paid. According to The Local France, police union leader Frédéric Lagache explained,

Faced with this irresponsibility [of the government], we are forced to be irresponsible in our actions.

The Rebuke of the Father: the Moment of Greta Thunberg

Now we have this stunning child who delivers this stern lecture, a fitting rebuke to the inaction of the nations going forward to the nations collective internationally agreed upon doom, so totally absurd because it is so absolutely and completely avoidable, especially seeing who the major polluters are, the corporate financial powers literally fiddling with the Fate of all life on earth in the rigged game of the Stock Market, the Great Whore Herself of Laissez-faire Capitalism: while all around them the world is starting to burn….. 

Can we really stand idly by and watch this Ecocide…the death of our entire planetary Biosphere on and by which we live………and continue to do nothing….???

At some point we shall find that the maternal aspect of compassion and mercy that is missing from our world almost entirely will have to reassert itself and complete the redemption of our souls that the Elite have entirely repudiated in favor of total totalitarian dominance over the entire Earth and the human race itself,

 

The Offspring of David: the Preexistent One

 

This young 15 year old girl Greta Thunberg really represents our own angelic nature itself…. for our Original Nature can be nothing other than the Primal Child that is neither male nor female; the Bornless One of the Lotus, the Archetypal Child is that Star that exists in every relationship or marriage intrinsically: alive in potential before the Act of Love by the parents gives it a sex as either male or female in it’s conception.

We have created a fictitious utopia which resembles the bright nightmare of a world built entirely on lies and deception; one in which the immense suffering and violence enacted in America against it’s own citizens is only a further sign of what our military forces and the predatory capitalism we have them enforce and sustain is doing to the rest of the world….

Hadith attributed to Muhammad give many signs of the appearance of the Dajjal

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

The One-eyed Dajjal of Yemen

===++=========

Wahabism Barbarism

=======++=====

Dajjāl (Arabic: دجال) is an adjective oSyriac origin.[1]

It is also a common Arabic superlative form of the root word dajl meaning “lie” or “deception“.[2]

Al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl, with the definite article al- (“the”), refers to “the deceiving Messiah“, a specific end times deceiver.

The One-eyed Dajjal was Laden senior…a one-eyed bricklayer from Yemen who had 12 sons, and became a billionaire in Arabia….

One of his sons was named Osama bin Laden… son of Laden…  Al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl = The Son of the Devil…”

As the hadith of Mohammed once said.

 

…9/10’s of all the evil in the world will come out of Yemen at the End…

 

The family of Laden was this evil….and their son: the son of Perdition; Osama bin Laden…Global Terrorist...but the Crown Prince proceeded without the Irfan ( Gnosis )….and began his hideous genocide in Yemen based on his ignorance that the Messenger Mohammed was speaking of Osama bin Laden and his father at the End in the Last Days……. the One-Eyed Dajjal and his son the Son of Perdition were well ensconced in Arabic politics by this time…as with Wahabism and all the rest

Osama bin Laden was quite aware that John Brennan signed all the passports for the Saudi nationals to gain entry into the US…and John  Brennan did this in a visit to see the King of Arabia,  so that these men could come to America and take flight lessons… and then proceed with the Plan…George Bush’s Reichstag Fire…

 

“The Dajjāl is an evil being who will seek to impersonate the true Messiah.”

The name Dajjal also is rooted in an Arabic word dajel,

which means “to gold plate” or “to coat in gold”.

It is derived from word meaning “to mix”.

The Worship of the Image of the Beast….

………now seen in the fulfillment of the Revelation of my Father Jesus

“…The actual danger of the Al-Masih ad-Dajjal is that he will appear to be righteous, an honest man of the people

…..but this will be false….as is his constant dissembling to cunningly project a false appearance;

a smiling and confidant one very much at odds with his insecure and fear-conditioned reality…..”

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

 

It is said that he will “wrap” himself or “coat” himself in gold….

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

Here are five ways in which President Trump has conducted himself

like the leader of a corrupt banana republic.

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

 

1. Relentless Demonizing of the Press

In a democratic republic, the press is meant to serve as an aggressive watchdog—and most U.S. presidents have understood that, even when they felt the press was being unfair. President Barack Obama was visibly annoyed at Fox News at times, but he respected their 1st Amendment rights and realized that he wasn’t exempt from the media’s scrutiny. Trump, however, has repeatedly denounced the press as the energy of the people—even when CNN reporters were receiving death threats, even after the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose White House press credentials were revoked after the midterms, never received death threats before Trump’s presidency—now, Acosta has noted, he receives them regularly.

2. Undermining a Federal Criminal Investigation

In democracies, even sitting presidents are not exempt from the rule of law—which is why President Richard Nixon probably would have been removed from office via the impeachment process had he not resigned on August 8, 1974 (Trump faced articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives, but he stepped down before a Senate trial could come about).

Trump, however, views himself as exempt from the scrutiny of the U.S. Justice Department.

Furious with Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-related investigation, Trump fired him after the 2018 midterms and replaced him with loyalist Matt Whitaker—who just happens to be an outspoken opponent of the investigation. This is very much the type of corrupt behavior one would expect from the leader of a banana republic.

3. Interference with Election Results and Voting Rights

Trump not only promotes blatant voter suppression in predominantly non-white areas that are more favorable to Democrats than Republicans—he also favors voiding election results that he disagrees with. Requesting a recount is perfectly legitimate; in the 2018 Florida Senate race, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson wouldn’t concede to Gov. Rick Scott without a recount.

But when the recount showed a narrow victory for Scott, Nelson conceded defeat. Trump, however, wanted to throw out the election results in the 2018 Arizona Senate race when Democrat Kyrsten Sinema narrowly pulled ahead of Republican Martha McSally.

On November 8, Trump tweeted, “Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!” There was no evidence whatsoever that Sinema’s supporters had committed any type of voter fraud; regardless, Trump went way beyond asking for a recount—he wanted a “new election.”

But McSally, to her credit, rejected Trump’s conspiracy theory nonsense and eventually conceded to Sinema.

4. Pardoning Cronies, However Egregious Their Actions

In Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio (an outspoken Trump supporter) conducted himself like a dictator or an authoritarian rather than a democratically elected law enforcement official. But the system of checks and balances worked when Arpaio lost a bid for reelection and faced misdemeanor contempt of court charges for refusing to comply with a judge’s orders to cease traffic stops that specifically targeted Latino drivers. Arpaio faced up to half a year in jail, but he was spared incarceration when Trump gave him a presidential pardon in 2017. Chiraag Bains, a senior fellow at Harvard Law School’s Criminal Justice Policy Program, asserted that Trump’s pardon of Arpaio was disturbing not only because it was anendorsement of racism,” but also, because it “reflects Trump’s deep disdain for the judiciary and its role in our system of checks and balances.”

5. Shameless Monetization of the Presidency

When Trump was campaigning for president in 2016, he promised that there would be a strict separation of his business interests and his political activity. But not unlike a family dynasty in a banana republic—for example, the Somoza family in Nicaragua—the Trump family has monetized the White House.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were appointed atop White House aides. And in July 2017, Mother Jones noted that neither of them had fully divested from their real estate holdings.

Not only has President Trump failed to “drain the swamp”—he has made it much more toxic.

Yemen, Al-Masih ad-Dajjal and the Matter of the House of Saud

In an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday, the president went after retired AdmWilliam H. McRaven, who oversaw the capture of Saddam Hussein and the killing of Osama bin Laden during his near-40 years in the U.S. military. Questioning Trump’s attacks on the press, Wallace brought up McRaven, who wrote in an op-ed this summer that the president’s description of the media as the “enemy of the people” was the greatest threat to American democracy he had ever witnessed.

At the first mention of the retired Navy SEAL and Special Operations commander, Trump immediately blurted out, in some kind of Pavlovian response, “Hillary Clinton fan,” and later described McRaven as an “Obama backer.”

 

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

“Ye cannot serve both God and Mammon”

There is little doubt that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman indeed had Jamal Khashoggi killed, and that he is without any doubt a tyrant, even torturing 8 female dissidents in prison for teaching women to drive in the last few months...

It is of the actions such people that the Seal of the prophets Muhammad once spoke:
“… Islam came as a stranger into this world: and it will depart as one…”
Indeed it is this second part of “.. it will depart as one….” hadith  that is just bringing into focus the falling away the Jâhiliyya as the decline in Islam; the losing of the blessing of God, that is the cause of the world’s troubles at this point with Islam: that and the fact that the US military is fighting for the continued hegemony of the petrodollar, is trying to  have it eternally remain the world Reserve Currency when it’s obvious it cannot for very much longer hold on to this position …… no matter how many wars the Pentagon starts.
But Crown Prince Salman is going even farther by denying the Shia of Iran the right of the Haj to Mecca: this is  his own apostasy…arrogance in National Act of Takfir, Salman’s faithless act of Irreligious Excommunication, cutting off of the entire Nation of Iran, from Mecca
In Islam, the practice of takfir, or excommunication, is theologically perilous.
“If a man says to his brother, ‘You are an infidel,’ ” the Prophet said, “then one of them is right.”
If the accuser is wrong, he himself has committed apostasy by making a false accusation. The punishment for apostasy is death. And yet Osama bin Laden’s successor Zarqawi heedlessly expanded the range of behavior that could make Muslims infidels.

The following signs are ascribed to Ali in the coming of Dajjal

People will stop offering the prayers

Dishonesty will be the way of life

Falsehood will become a virtue

People will mortgage their faith for worldly gain

Usury and bribery will become legitimate

There will be acute famine at the time

There will be no shame amongst people

Many people will worship Satan

There will be no respect for elderly people

People will start killing each other without any good reason

The troubles are further seen in what is known as the Religions all becoming hypocritical bastions of Oppression and Repression; being corrupted by those who use these outmoded Systems of Belief as political Tools of Mass Psychological Control; producing a global “falling away” in all the Nations into the Secular Rule of Free Market Capitalism.
This phenomena as of Islamic Jâhiliyya Christian Decline and Judaisms Neo Nazi Zionism are spoken of in II Thessalonians,  in describing the subtle apostasy that the three Monotheistic religions descend into, embracing a barbaric and heavily politicized literalism; a blind holding on to shallow reductionist fundamentals from the past in the hopes of escaping condemnation for abandoning the Faith internally at the incoming Last Judgment
Indeed we cam now bear witness as the congregations of fallen Christianity, fallen Islam and fallen Judaism are indeed hiding in the rocks and the valleys of their Scriptures as the relics of their calcified Faith; these books as the objects of the Faith and the sayings within made into simplistic slogans and battle cries as taking refuge in mountains of Orthodoxy tocover them due to their horrific ignorance of God, seen in their atrocities and genocides in the name of their False God of Ignorance

 

Voltaire and the Lessons of History

“…Those who can get you to believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities,,,..”

Voltaire

This rank fundamentalism which sprang up in the South like some poisonous mushroom is an ignorant literalism of no prophetic value; those determined Antichristian reasoners of such intellectual abortions as trying to teach children that the Earth is only 6000 years old, or with preposterous statements worthy of the Taliban as of those Southern fundamentalists in America who insist that there were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark !!!
This is matched by the profound ignorance found in Islam where the holders of Mecca and Medina are now refusing the Hajj tushiya and anybody else they have decided to dispossess; all the while starving to death other Muslims in Yemen for reasons that are murky at best….
And then of course we have the rulers of Israel who decided that being a Nazi is okay as long as you’re killing Palestinians
As the messenger Paul the Apostle said
“…For the word in its letter is death: but in it’s spirit is life…”
This was done in his rebuke to literalism, as an approach to the Scripture that was fundamentally ignorant in trying to reduce something to a simplification which proves only to betray it’s real meaning..
Thus these men worship not God…but Death… as of a Cult of Death whose dogma is of the Dead,,,.
But as Albert Einstein quite well said:
“…. Everything is as simple as it is:…. but not simpler …”
An observation which can also be applied to the Gospel and other written works, which cannot be reduced into spiritual pablum or taken and then watered down into universal tapioca, at least not for very long

Signs of coming of Al-Masih ad-Dajjal

The Seal of the Prophets had said that the False Savior would travel the whole world, entering every city except Mecca and Medina 

The Messenger Muhammad is also reported to have exhorted his supporters to recite the first and last ten verses oSura Al-Kahf (chapter 18 in the Qur’an), as protection from the trials and mischief of the Dajjal.

What is the real meaning of this saying as of the real sign that “they will be killing each other for NO GOOD REASON…”.

 

 

While the specific claims made by the source in the report have yet to be independently confirmed by other news outlets, the details align with previous extensive reporting on the Khashoggi scandal and the ensuing “damage control” efforts carried out by the Saudi regime.

According to Middle East Eye, the plan to shield the crown prince encompasses several steps, including an option to blame Khashoggi’s murder “on an innocent member of the ruling al-Saud family in order to insulate those at the very top.”

 

The response of the Trump White House in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s murder has brought increased attention to Trump’s business ties to Saudi Arabia, the close relationship between Jared Kushner and the crown prince, and other potential conflicts of interest that could explain the administration’s motivation to provide cover to the Saudi regime.

Of particular interest is a $110 million payment that Saudi Arabia made to the U.S. government on the same day that Pompeo arrived in the Gulf kingdom. That’s the same amount of money that was previously promised to the Trump administration to support its stabilization efforts in Syria.

White House officials have insisted the timing of the payment was mere coincidence, but many Middle Eastern experts are skeptical.

“In all probability, the Saudis want Trump to know that his cooperation in covering for the Khashoggi affair is important to the Saudi monarch,” Joshua Landis, director of the University of Oklahoma’s Center of Middle East Studiestold the Washington Post. “Much of its financial promises to the U.S. will be contingent on this cooperation.”

Others offered even more blunt assessments. “The timing of this is no coincidence,” said one U.S. official involved in Syria policy.

Complicating matters even further are Trump’s personal financial interests in Saudi Arabia. Despite his denials when questioned in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s killing, Trump has previously bragged about how much money he’s made from Saudi investors, and these profits have only increased since his election.

According to a Washington Post report, Trump Hotels in New York and Chicago have seen a huge influx of Saudi cash in recent months, giving Trump yet another reason to cozy up to the royal family — and possibly even enough motivation to help them cover up a murder.

More than six weeks after Khashoggi was brutally murdered for his work as a journalist, new questions continue to arise about his killing and the events that took place afterward. But while we don’t know the full story yet, one thing is clear: If the effort to cover up Khashoggi’s murder was designed to make the scandal go away, it couldn’t possibly have backfired in a bigger way.

 

Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman speaks during the second day of ‘The Future Investment Initiative also known as an annual investment forum ‘Davos in the Desert’ on October 24, 2018 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

 

 

Dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession but would not act while King Salman – the crown princes 82-year-old father – is still alive, the sources said.

They recognize that the king is unlikely to turn against his favorite son, known in the West as MbS.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king’s death, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 76, a younger full brother of King Salman and uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

Present Trump Iconography

The Man of Lawlessness

Amid international uproar over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, some members of Saudi Arabia’s ruling family are agitating to prevent Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from becoming king, three sources close to the royal court said.

Dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession but would not act while King Salman – the crown prince’s 82-year-old father – is still alive, the sources said. They recognize that the king is unlikely to turn against his favorite son, known in the West as MbS.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king’s death, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 76, a younger full brother of King Salman and uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

Prince Ahmed, King Salman’s only surviving full brother, would have the support of family members, the security apparatus and some Western powers, one of the Saudi sources said.

Prince Ahmed returned to Riyadh in October after 2-1/2 months abroad. During the trip, he appeared to criticize the Saudi leadership while responding to protesters outside a London residence chanting for the downfall of the Al Saud dynasty.

He was one of only three people on the Allegiance Council, made up of the ruling family’s senior members, who opposed MbS becoming crown prince in 2017, two Saudi sources said at the time.

Neither Prince Ahmed nor his representatives could be reached for comment. Officials in Riyadh did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters for comment on succession issues.

The House of Saud is made up of hundreds of princes. Unlike typical European monarchies, there is no automatic succession from father to eldest son. Instead the kingdoms tribal traditions dictate that the king and senior family members from each branch select the heir they consider fittest to lead.

Senior U.S. officials have indicated to Saudi advisers in recent weeks that they would support Prince Ahmed, who was deputy interior minister for nearly 40 years, as a potential successor, according to Saudi sources with direct knowledge of the consultations.

These Saudi sources said they were confident that Prince Ahmed would not change or reverse any of the social or economic reforms enacted by MbS, would honor existing military procurement contracts and would restore the unity of the family.

One senior U.S. official said the White House is in no hurry to distance itself from the crown prince despite pressure from lawmakers and the CIAs assessment that MbS ordered Khashoggis murder, though that could change once Trump gets a definitive report on the killing from the intelligence community.

The official also said the White House saw it as noteworthy that King Salman seemed to stand by his son in a speech in Riyadh on Monday and made no direct reference to Khashoggi’s killing, except to praise the Saudi public prosecutor.

The White House declined to comment.

The Saudi sources said U.S. officials had cooled on MbS not only because of his suspected role in the murder of Khashoggi. They are also rankled because the crown prince recently urged the Saudi defense ministry to explore alternative weapons supplies from Russia, the sources said.

In a letter dated May 15, seen by Reuters, the crown prince requested that the defense ministry “focus on purchasing weapon systems and equipment in the most pressing fields” and get training on them, including the Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile system.

Neither the Russian defense ministry nor officials in Riyadh immediately responded to Reuters requests for comment.

The brutal killing of Khashoggi, a prominent critic of the crown prince, in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month has drawn global condemnation, including from many politicians and officials in the United States, a key Saudi ally. The CIA believes the crown prince ordered the killing, according to U.S. sources familiar with the assessment.

Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor has said the crown prince knew nothing of the killing.

The international uproar has piled pressure on a royal court already divided over 33-year-old Prince Mohammed’s rapid rise to power. Since his ascension, the prince has gained popular support with high-profile social and economic reforms including ending a ban on women driving and opening cinemas in the conservative kingdom.

His reforms have been accompanied by a crackdown on dissent, a purge of top royals and businessmen on corruption charges, and a costly war in Yemen.

He has also marginalized senior members of the royal family and consolidated control over Saudis security and intelligence agencies.

He first ousted then-powerful crown prince and interior minister Mohammed bin Nayef (MbN), 59, in June 2017. Then he removed Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, 65, son of the late King Abdullah, as head of the National Guard and detained him as part of an anti-corruption campaign.

People will carry on regardless of CIA Saudi Arabia report, says pro

Some 30 other princes were also arrested, mistreated, humiliated and stripped of their wealth, even as MbS splashed out on palaces, a $500 million yacht, and set a new record in the international art market with the purchase of a painting by Italian Renaissance engineer and painter Leonardo Da Vinci.

The entire House of Saud has emerged weakened as a result.

According to one well-placed Saudi source, many princes from senior circles in the family believe a change in the line of succession “would not provoke any resistance from the security or intelligence bodies he controls” because of their loyalty to the wider family.

“They (the security apparatus) will follow any consensus reached by the family.”

Officials in Riyadh did not respond to a request for comment.

The United States, a key ally in economic and security terms, is likely to be a determining factor in how matters unfold in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi sources and diplomats say.

President Donald Trump on Saturday called the CIA assessment that MbS ordered Khashoggi’s killing “very premature” but “possible”, and said he would receive a complete report on the case on Tuesday.

Trump and his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner have cultivated deep personal relationships with the crown prince. One Saudi insider said MbS feels he still has their support and is willing to “roll some heads to appease the U.S.”

But Trump and top administration officials have said Saudi officials should be held to account for any involvement in Khashoggis death and have imposed sanctions on 17 Saudis for their alleged role including one of MbS’s closest aides.

U.S. lawmakers are meanwhile pushing legislation to punish Riyadh for the killing, and both Republican and Democratic senators have urged Trump to get tough on the crown prince.

King Salman, 82, is aware of the consequences of a major clash with the United States and the possibility that Congress could try to freeze Saudi assets.

Those who have met the king recently say he appeared to be in denial about the role of MbS in what happened, believing there to be a conspiracy against the kingdom. But they added that he looked burdened and worried.

ALLEGIANCE COUNCIL
When the king dies or is no longer be able to rule, the 34-member Allegiance Council, a body representing each line of the ruling family to lend legitimacy to succession decisions, would not automatically declare MbS the new king.

Even as crown prince, MbS would still need the council to ratify his ascension, one of the three Saudi sources said. While the council accepted King Salman’s wish to make MbS crown prince, it would not necessarily accept MbS becoming king when his father dies, especially given that he sought to marginalise council members.

Officials in Riyadh did not respond to a request for comment.

The Saudi sources say MbS has destroyed the institutional pillars of nearly a century of Al Saud rule: the family, the clerics, the tribes and the merchant families. They say this is seen inside the family as destabilising.

Despite the controversy over Khashoggi’s killing, MbS is continuing to pursue his agenda.

Some insiders believe he built his father a new but remote Red Sea palace in Sharma, at the Neom City development site — thrown up in a record one year at a cost of $2 billion — as a gilded cage for his retirement.

The site is isolated, the closest city of Tabouk more than 100 km (60 miles) away. Residence there would keep the king out of the loop on most affairs of state, one of the sources close to the royal family said.

Officials in Riyadh did not respond to a request for comment.

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

The One-eyed Dajjal of Yemen

===++=========

Wahabism Barbarism

=======++=====

Dajjāl (Arabic: دجال) is an adjective oSyriac origin.[1]

It is also a common Arabic superlative form of the root word dajl meaning “lie” or “deception“.[2]

Al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl, with the definite article al- (“the”), refers to “the deceiving Messiah“, a specific end times deceiver.

The One-eyed Dajjal was Laden senior…a one-eyed bricklayer from Yemen who had 12 sons, and became a billionaire in Arabia….

One of his sons was named Osama bin Laden… son of Laden…  Al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl = The Son of the Devil…”

As the hadith of Mohammed once said.

 

…9/10’s of all the evil in the world will come out of Yemen at the End…

 

The family of Laden was this evil….and their son: the son of Perdition; Osama bin Laden…Global Terrorist...but the Crown Prince proceeded without the Irfan ( Gnosis )….and began his hideous genocide in Yemen based on his ignorance that the Messenger Mohammed was speaking of Osama bin Laden and his father at the End in the Last Days……. the One-Eyed Dajjal and his son the Son of Perdition were well ensconced in Arabic politics by this time…as with Wahabism and all the rest

Osama bin Laden was quite aware that John Brennan signed all the passports for the Saudi nationals to gain entry into the US…and John  Brennan did this in a visit to see the King of Arabia,  so that these men could come to America and take flight lessons… and then proceed with the Plan…George Bush’s Reichstag Fire…

 

“The Dajjāl is an evil being who will seek to impersonate the true Messiah.”

The name Dajjal also is rooted in an Arabic word dajel,

which means “to gold plate” or “to coat in gold”.

It is derived from word meaning “to mix”.

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

Here are five ways in which President Trump has conducted himself

like the leader of a corrupt banana republic.

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

 

1. Relentless Demonizing of the Press

In a democratic republic, the press is meant to serve as an aggressive watchdog—and most U.S. presidents have understood that, even when they felt the press was being unfair. President Barack Obama was visibly annoyed at Fox News at times, but he respected their 1st Amendment rights and realized that he wasn’t exempt from the media’s scrutiny. Trump, however, has repeatedly denounced the press as the energy of the people—even when CNN reporters were receiving death threats, even after the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose White House press credentials were revoked after the midterms, never received death threats before Trump’s presidency—now, Acosta has noted, he receives them regularly.

2. Undermining a Federal Criminal Investigation

In democracies, even sitting presidents are not exempt from the rule of law—which is why President Richard Nixon probably would have been removed from office via the impeachment process had he not resigned on August 8, 1974 (Trump faced articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives, but he stepped down before a Senate trial could come about).

Trump, however, views himself as exempt from the scrutiny of the U.S. Justice Department.

Furious with Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-related investigation, Trump fired him after the 2018 midterms and replaced him with loyalist Matt Whitaker—who just happens to be an outspoken opponent of the investigation. This is very much the type of corrupt behavior one would expect from the leader of a banana republic.

3. Interference with Election Results and Voting Rights

Trump not only promotes blatant voter suppression in predominantly non-white areas that are more favorable to Democrats than Republicans—he also favors voiding election results that he disagrees with. Requesting a recount is perfectly legitimate; in the 2018 Florida Senate race, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson wouldn’t concede to Gov. Rick Scott without a recount.

But when the recount showed a narrow victory for Scott, Nelson conceded defeat. Trump, however, wanted to throw out the election results in the 2018 Arizona Senate race when Democrat Kyrsten Sinema narrowly pulled ahead of Republican Martha McSally.

On November 8, Trump tweeted, “Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!” There was no evidence whatsoever that Sinema’s supporters had committed any type of voter fraud; regardless, Trump went way beyond asking for a recount—he wanted a “new election.”

But McSally, to her credit, rejected Trump’s conspiracy theory nonsense and eventually conceded to Sinema.

4. Pardoning Cronies, However Egregious Their Actions

In Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio (an outspoken Trump supporter) conducted himself like a dictator or an authoritarian rather than a democratically elected law enforcement official. But the system of checks and balances worked when Arpaio lost a bid for reelection and faced misdemeanor contempt of court charges for refusing to comply with a judge’s orders to cease traffic stops that specifically targeted Latino drivers. Arpaio faced up to half a year in jail, but he was spared incarceration when Trump gave him a presidential pardon in 2017. Chiraag Bains, a senior fellow at Harvard Law School’s Criminal Justice Policy Program, asserted that Trump’s pardon of Arpaio was disturbing not only because it was anendorsement of racism,” but also, because it “reflects Trump’s deep disdain for the judiciary and its role in our system of checks and balances.”

5. Shameless Monetization of the Presidency

When Trump was campaigning for president in 2016, he promised that there would be a strict separation of his business interests and his political activity. But not unlike a family dynasty in a banana republic—for example, the Somoza family in Nicaragua—the Trump family has monetized the White House.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were appointed atop White House aides. And in July 2017, Mother Jones noted that neither of them had fully divested from their real estate holdings.

Not only has President Trump failed to “drain the swamp”—he has made it much more toxic.

Yemen, Al-Masih ad-Dajjal and the Matter of the House of Saud

In an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday, the president went after retired AdmWilliam H. McRaven, who oversaw the capture of Saddam Hussein and the killing of Osama bin Laden during his near-40 years in the U.S. military. Questioning Trump’s attacks on the press, Wallace brought up McRaven, who wrote in an op-ed this summer that the president’s description of the media as the “enemy of the people” was the greatest threat to American democracy he had ever witnessed.

At the first mention of the retired Navy SEAL and Special Operations commander, Trump immediately blurted out, in some kind of Pavlovian response, “Hillary Clinton fan,” and later described McRaven as an “Obama backer.”

 

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

“Ye cannot serve both God and Mammon”

There is little doubt that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman indeed had Jamal Khashoggi killed, and that he is without any doubt a tyrant, even torturing 8 female dissidents in prison for teaching women to drive in the last few months...

It is of the actions such people that the Seal of the prophets Muhammad once spoke:
“… Islam came as a stranger into this world: and it will depart as one…”
Indeed it is this second part of “.. it will depart as one….” hadith  that is just bringing into focus the falling away the Jâhiliyya as the decline in Islam; the losing of the blessing of God, that is the cause of the world’s troubles at this point with Islam: that and the fact that the US military is fighting for the continued hegemony of the petrodollar, is trying to  have it eternally remain the world Reserve Currency when it’s obvious it cannot for very much longer hold on to this position …… no matter how many wars the Pentagon starts.
But Crown Prince Salman is going even farther by denying the Shia of Iran the right of the Haj to Mecca: this is  his own apostasy…arrogance in National Act of Takfir, Salman’s faithless act of Irreligious Excommunication, cutting off of the entire Nation of Iran, from Mecca
In Islam, the practice of takfir, or excommunication, is theologically perilous.
“If a man says to his brother, ‘You are an infidel,’ ” the Prophet said, “then one of them is right.”
If the accuser is wrong, he himself has committed apostasy by making a false accusation. The punishment for apostasy is death. And yet Osama bin Laden’s successor Zarqawi heedlessly expanded the range of behavior that could make Muslims infidels.

The following signs are ascribed to Ali in the coming of Dajjal

People will stop offering the prayers

Dishonesty will be the way of life

Falsehood will become a virtue

People will mortgage their faith for worldly gain

Usury and bribery will become legitimate

There will be acute famine at the time

There will be no shame amongst people

Many people will worship Satan

There will be no respect for elderly people

People will start killing each other without any good reason

The troubles are further seen in what is known as the Religions all becoming hypocritical bastions of Oppression and Repression; being corrupted by those who use these outmoded Systems of Belief as political Tools of Mass Psychological Control; producing a global “falling away” in all the Nations into the Secular Rule of Free Market Capitalism.
This phenomena as of Islamic Jâhiliyya Christian Decline and Judaisms Neo Nazi Zionism are spoken of in II Thessalonians,  in describing the subtle apostasy that the three Monotheistic religions descend into, embracing a barbaric and heavily politicized literalism; a blind holding on to shallow reductionist fundamentals from the past in the hopes of escaping condemnation for abandoning the Faith internally at the incoming Last Judgment
Indeed we cam now bear witness as the congregations of fallen Christianity, fallen Islam and fallen Judaism are indeed hiding in the rocks and the valleys of their Scriptures as the relics of their calcified Faith; these books as the objects of the Faith and the sayings within made into simplistic slogans and battle cries as taking refuge in mountains of Orthodoxy tocover them due to their horrific ignorance of God, seen in their atrocities and genocides in the name of their False God of Ignorance

 

Voltaire and the Lessons of History

“…Those who can get you to believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities,,,..”

Voltaire

This rank fundamentalism which sprang up in the South like some poisonous mushroom is an ignorant literalism of no prophetic value; those determined Antichristian reasoners of such intellectual abortions as trying to teach children that the Earth is only 6000 years old, or with preposterous statements worthy of the Taliban as of those Southern fundamentalists in America who insist that there were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark !!!
This is matched by the profound ignorance found in Islam where the holders of Mecca and Medina are now refusing the Hajj tushiya and anybody else they have decided to dispossess; all the while starving to death other Muslims in Yemen for reasons that are murky at best….
And then of course we have the rulers of Israel who decided that being a Nazi is okay as long as you’re killing Palestinians
As the messenger Paul the Apostle said
“…For the word in its letter is death: but in it’s spirit is life…”
This was done in his rebuke to literalism, as an approach to the Scripture that was fundamentally ignorant in trying to reduce something to a simplification which proves only to betray it’s real meaning..
Thus these men worship not God…but Death… as of a Cult of Death whose dogma is of the Dead,,,.
But as Albert Einstein quite well said:
“…. Everything is as simple as it is:…. but not simpler …”
An observation which can also be applied to the Gospel and other written works, which cannot be reduced into spiritual pablum or taken and then watered down into universal tapioca, at least not for very long

Signs of coming of Al-Masih ad-Dajjal

The Seal of the Prophets had said that the False Savior would travel the whole world, entering every city except Mecca and Medina 

The Messenger Muhammad is also reported to have exhorted his supporters to recite the first and last ten verses oSura Al-Kahf (chapter 18 in the Qur’an), as protection from the trials and mischief of the Dajjal.

What is the real meaning of this saying as of the real sign that “they will be killing each other for NO GOOD REASON…”.

 

 

While the specific claims made by the source in the report have yet to be independently confirmed by other news outlets, the details align with previous extensive reporting on the Khashoggi scandal and the ensuing “damage control” efforts carried out by the Saudi regime.

According to Middle East Eye, the plan to shield the crown prince encompasses several steps, including an option to blame Khashoggi’s murder “on an innocent member of the ruling al-Saud family in order to insulate those at the very top.”

 

The response of the Trump White House in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s murder has brought increased attention to Trump’s business ties to Saudi Arabia, the close relationship between Jared Kushner and the crown prince, and other potential conflicts of interest that could explain the administration’s motivation to provide cover to the Saudi regime.

Of particular interest is a $110 million payment that Saudi Arabia made to the U.S. government on the same day that Pompeo arrived in the Gulf kingdom. That’s the same amount of money that was previously promised to the Trump administration to support its stabilization efforts in Syria.

White House officials have insisted the timing of the payment was mere coincidence, but many Middle Eastern experts are skeptical.

“In all probability, the Saudis want Trump to know that his cooperation in covering for the Khashoggi affair is important to the Saudi monarch,” Joshua Landis, director of the University of Oklahoma’s Center of Middle East Studiestold the Washington Post. “Much of its financial promises to the U.S. will be contingent on this cooperation.”

Others offered even more blunt assessments. “The timing of this is no coincidence,” said one U.S. official involved in Syria policy.

Complicating matters even further are Trump’s personal financial interests in Saudi Arabia. Despite his denials when questioned in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s killing, Trump has previously bragged about how much money he’s made from Saudi investors, and these profits have only increased since his election.

According to a Washington Post report, Trump Hotels in New York and Chicago have seen a huge influx of Saudi cash in recent months, giving Trump yet another reason to cozy up to the royal family — and possibly even enough motivation to help them cover up a murder.

More than six weeks after Khashoggi was brutally murdered for his work as a journalist, new questions continue to arise about his killing and the events that took place afterward. But while we don’t know the full story yet, one thing is clear: If the effort to cover up Khashoggi’s murder was designed to make the scandal go away, it couldn’t possibly have backfired in a bigger way.

 

Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman speaks during the second day of ‘The Future Investment Initiative also known as an annual investment forum ‘Davos in the Desert’ on October 24, 2018 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

 

 

Dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession but would not act while King Salman – the crown princes 82-year-old father – is still alive, the sources said.

They recognize that the king is unlikely to turn against his favorite son, known in the West as MbS.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king’s death, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 76, a younger full brother of King Salman and uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

The Man of Lawlessness

Amid international uproar over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, some members of Saudi Arabia’s ruling family are agitating to prevent Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from becoming king, three sources close to the royal court said.

Dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession but would not act while King Salman – the crown prince’s 82-year-old father – is still alive, the sources said. They recognize that the king is unlikely to turn against his favorite son, known in the West as MbS.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king’s death, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 76, a younger full brother of King Salman and uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

Prince Ahmed, King Salman’s only surviving full brother, would have the support of family members, the security apparatus and some Western powers, one of the Saudi sources said.

Prince Ahmed returned to Riyadh in October after 2-1/2 months abroad. During the trip, he appeared to criticize the Saudi leadership while responding to protesters outside a London residence chanting for the downfall of the Al Saud dynasty.

He was one of only three people on the Allegiance Council, made up of the ruling family’s senior members, who opposed MbS becoming crown prince in 2017, two Saudi sources said at the time.

Neither Prince Ahmed nor his representatives could be reached for comment. Officials in Riyadh did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters for comment on succession issues.

The House of Saud is made up of hundreds of princes. Unlike typical European monarchies, there is no automatic succession from father to eldest son. Instead the kingdoms tribal traditions dictate that the king and senior family members from each branch select the heir they consider fittest to lead.

Senior U.S. officials have indicated to Saudi advisers in recent weeks that they would support Prince Ahmed, who was deputy interior minister for nearly 40 years, as a potential successor, according to Saudi sources with direct knowledge of the consultations.

These Saudi sources said they were confident that Prince Ahmed would not change or reverse any of the social or economic reforms enacted by MbS, would honor existing military procurement contracts and would restore the unity of the family.

One senior U.S. official said the White House is in no hurry to distance itself from the crown prince despite pressure from lawmakers and the CIAs assessment that MbS ordered Khashoggis murder, though that could change once Trump gets a definitive report on the killing from the intelligence community.

The official also said the White House saw it as noteworthy that King Salman seemed to stand by his son in a speech in Riyadh on Monday and made no direct reference to Khashoggi’s killing, except to praise the Saudi public prosecutor.

The White House declined to comment.

The Saudi sources said U.S. officials had cooled on MbS not only because of his suspected role in the murder of Khashoggi. They are also rankled because the crown prince recently urged the Saudi defense ministry to explore alternative weapons supplies from Russia, the sources said.

In a letter dated May 15, seen by Reuters, the crown prince requested that the defense ministry “focus on purchasing weapon systems and equipment in the most pressing fields” and get training on them, including the Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile system.

Neither the Russian defense ministry nor officials in Riyadh immediately responded to Reuters requests for comment.

It is derived from word meaning “to mix”.

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

Here are five ways in which President Trump has conducted himself

like the leader of a corrupt banana republic.

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

 

1. Relentless Demonizing of the Press

In a democratic republic, the press is meant to serve as an aggressive watchdog—and most U.S. presidents have understood that, even when they felt the press was being unfair. President Barack Obama was visibly annoyed at Fox News at times, but he respected their 1st Amendment rights and realized that he wasn’t exempt from the media’s scrutiny. Trump, however, has repeatedly denounced the press as the energy of the people—even when CNN reporters were receiving death threats, even after the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose White House press credentials were revoked after the midterms, never received death threats before Trump’s presidency—now, Acosta has noted, he receives them regularly.

2. Undermining a Federal Criminal Investigation

In democracies, even sitting presidents are not exempt from the rule of law—which is why President Richard Nixon probably would have been removed from office via the impeachment process had he not resigned on August 8, 1974 (Trump faced articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives, but he stepped down before a Senate trial could come about).

Trump, however, views himself as exempt from the scrutiny of the U.S. Justice Department.

Furious with Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-related investigation, Trump fired him after the 2018 midterms and replaced him with loyalist Matt Whitaker—who just happens to be an outspoken opponent of the investigation. This is very much the type of corrupt behavior one would expect from the leader of a banana republic.

3. Interference with Election Results and Voting Rights

Trump not only promotes blatant voter suppression in predominantly non-white areas that are more favorable to Democrats than Republicans—he also favors voiding election results that he disagrees with. Requesting a recount is perfectly legitimate; in the 2018 Florida Senate race, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson wouldn’t concede to Gov. Rick Scott without a recount.

But when the recount showed a narrow victory for Scott, Nelson conceded defeat. Trump, however, wanted to throw out the election results in the 2018 Arizona Senate race when Democrat Kyrsten Sinema narrowly pulled ahead of Republican Martha McSally.

On November 8, Trump tweeted, “Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!” There was no evidence whatsoever that Sinema’s supporters had committed any type of voter fraud; regardless, Trump went way beyond asking for a recount—he wanted a “new election.”

But McSally, to her credit, rejected Trump’s conspiracy theory nonsense and eventually conceded to Sinema.

4. Pardoning Cronies, However Egregious Their Actions

In Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio (an outspoken Trump supporter) conducted himself like a dictator or an authoritarian rather than a democratically elected law enforcement official. But the system of checks and balances worked when Arpaio lost a bid for reelection and faced misdemeanor contempt of court charges for refusing to comply with a judge’s orders to cease traffic stops that specifically targeted Latino drivers. Arpaio faced up to half a year in jail, but he was spared incarceration when Trump gave him a presidential pardon in 2017. Chiraag Bains, a senior fellow at Harvard Law School’s Criminal Justice Policy Program, asserted that Trump’s pardon of Arpaio was disturbing not only because it was anendorsement of racism,” but also, because it “reflects Trump’s deep disdain for the judiciary and its role in our system of checks and balances.”

5. Shameless Monetization of the Presidency

When Trump was campaigning for president in 2016, he promised that there would be a strict separation of his business interests and his political activity. But not unlike a family dynasty in a banana republic—for example, the Somoza family in Nicaragua—the Trump family has monetized the White House.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, were appointed atop White House aides. And in July 2017, Mother Jones noted that neither of them had fully divested from their real estate holdings.

Not only has President Trump failed to “drain the swamp”—he has made it much more toxic.

Yemen, Al-Masih ad-Dajjal and the Matter of the House of Saud

In an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday, the president went after retired AdmWilliam H. McRaven, who oversaw the capture of Saddam Hussein and the killing of Osama bin Laden during his near-40 years in the U.S. military. Questioning Trump’s attacks on the press, Wallace brought up McRaven, who wrote in an op-ed this summer that the president’s description of the media as the “enemy of the people” was the greatest threat to American democracy he had ever witnessed.

At the first mention of the retired Navy SEAL and Special Operations commander, Trump immediately blurted out, in some kind of Pavlovian response, “Hillary Clinton fan,” and later described McRaven as an “Obama backer.”

 

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

“Ye cannot serve both God and Mammon”

There is little doubt that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman indeed had Jamal Khashoggi killed, and that he is without any doubt a tyrant, even torturing 8 female dissidents in prison for teaching women to drive in the last few months...

It is of the actions such people that the Seal of the prophets Muhammad once spoke:
“… Islam came as a stranger into this world: and it will depart as one…”
Indeed it is this second part of “.. it will depart as one….” hadith  that is just bringing into focus the falling away the Jâhiliyya as the decline in Islam; the losing of the blessing of God, that is the cause of the world’s troubles at this point with Islam: that and the fact that the US military is fighting for the continued hegemony of the petrodollar, is trying to  have it eternally remain the world Reserve Currency when it’s obvious it cannot for very much longer hold on to this position …… no matter how many wars the Pentagon starts.
But Crown Prince Salman is going even farther by denying the Shia of Iran the right of the Haj to Mecca: this is  his own apostasy…arrogance in National Act of Takfir, Salman’s faithless act of Irreligious Excommunication, cutting off of the entire Nation of Iran, from Mecca
In Islam, the practice of takfir, or excommunication, is theologically perilous.
“If a man says to his brother, ‘You are an infidel,’ ” the Prophet said, “then one of them is right.”
If the accuser is wrong, he himself has committed apostasy by making a false accusation. The punishment for apostasy is death. And yet Osama bin Laden’s successor Zarqawi heedlessly expanded the range of behavior that could make Muslims infidels.

The following signs are ascribed to Ali in the coming of Dajjal

People will stop offering the prayers

Dishonesty will be the way of life

Falsehood will become a virtue

People will mortgage their faith for worldly gain

Usury and bribery will become legitimate

There will be acute famine at the time

There will be no shame amongst people

Many people will worship Satan

There will be no respect for elderly people

People will start killing each other without any good reason

The troubles are further seen in what is known as the Religions all becoming hypocritical bastions of Oppression and Repression; being corrupted by those who use these outmoded Systems of Belief as political Tools of Mass Psychological Control; producing a global “falling away” in all the Nations into the Secular Rule of Free Market Capitalism.
This phenomena as of Islamic Jâhiliyya Christian Decline and Judaisms Neo Nazi Zionism are spoken of in II Thessalonians,  in describing the subtle apostasy that the three Monotheistic religions descend into, embracing a barbaric and heavily politicized literalism; a blind holding on to shallow reductionist fundamentals from the past in the hopes of escaping condemnation for abandoning the Faith internally at the incoming Last Judgment
Indeed we cam now bear witness as the congregations of fallen Christianity, fallen Islam and fallen Judaism are indeed hiding in the rocks and the valleys of their Scriptures as the relics of their calcified Faith; these books as the objects of the Faith and the sayings within made into simplistic slogans and battle cries as taking refuge in mountains of Orthodoxy tocover them due to their horrific ignorance of God, seen in their atrocities and genocides in the name of their False God of Ignorance

 

Voltaire and the Lessons of History

“…Those who can get you to believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities,,,..”

Voltaire

This rank fundamentalism which sprang up in the South like some poisonous mushroom is an ignorant literalism of no prophetic value; those determined Antichristian reasoners of such intellectual abortions as trying to teach children that the Earth is only 6000 years old, or with preposterous statements worthy of the Taliban as of those Southern fundamentalists in America who insist that there were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark !!!
This is matched by the profound ignorance found in Islam where the holders of Mecca and Medina are now refusing the Hajj tushiya and anybody else they have decided to dispossess; all the while starving to death other Muslims in Yemen for reasons that are murky at best….
And then of course we have the rulers of Israel who decided that being a Nazi is okay as long as you’re killing Palestinians
As the messenger Paul the Apostle said
“…For the word in its letter is death: but in it’s spirit is life…”
This was done in his rebuke to literalism, as an approach to the Scripture that was fundamentally ignorant in trying to reduce something to a simplification which proves only to betray it’s real meaning..
Thus these men worship not God…but Death… as of a Cult of Death whose dogma is of the Dead,,,.
But as Albert Einstein quite well said:
“…. Everything is as simple as it is:…. but not simpler …”
An observation which can also be applied to the Gospel and other written works, which cannot be reduced into spiritual pablum or taken and then watered down into universal tapioca, at least not for very long

Signs of coming of Al-Masih ad-Dajjal

The Seal of the Prophets had said that the False Savior would travel the whole world, entering every city except Mecca and Medina 

The Messenger Muhammad is also reported to have exhorted his supporters to recite the first and last ten verses oSura Al-Kahf (chapter 18 in the Qur’an), as protection from the trials and mischief of the Dajjal.

What is the real meaning of this saying as of the real sign that “they will be killing each other for NO GOOD REASON…”.

 

 

While the specific claims made by the source in the report have yet to be independently confirmed by other news outlets, the details align with previous extensive reporting on the Khashoggi scandal and the ensuing “damage control” efforts carried out by the Saudi regime.

According to Middle East Eye, the plan to shield the crown prince encompasses several steps, including an option to blame Khashoggi’s murder “on an innocent member of the ruling al-Saud family in order to insulate those at the very top.”

 

The response of the Trump White House in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s murder has brought increased attention to Trump’s business ties to Saudi Arabia, the close relationship between Jared Kushner and the crown prince, and other potential conflicts of interest that could explain the administration’s motivation to provide cover to the Saudi regime.

Of particular interest is a $110 million payment that Saudi Arabia made to the U.S. government on the same day that Pompeo arrived in the Gulf kingdom. That’s the same amount of money that was previously promised to the Trump administration to support its stabilization efforts in Syria.

White House officials have insisted the timing of the payment was mere coincidence, but many Middle Eastern experts are skeptical.

“In all probability, the Saudis want Trump to know that his cooperation in covering for the Khashoggi affair is important to the Saudi monarch,” Joshua Landis, director of the University of Oklahoma’s Center of Middle East Studiestold the Washington Post. “Much of its financial promises to the U.S. will be contingent on this cooperation.”

Others offered even more blunt assessments. “The timing of this is no coincidence,” said one U.S. official involved in Syria policy.

Complicating matters even further are Trump’s personal financial interests in Saudi Arabia. Despite his denials when questioned in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s killing, Trump has previously bragged about how much money he’s made from Saudi investors, and these profits have only increased since his election.

According to a Washington Post report, Trump Hotels in New York and Chicago have seen a huge influx of Saudi cash in recent months, giving Trump yet another reason to cozy up to the royal family — and possibly even enough motivation to help them cover up a murder.

More than six weeks after Khashoggi was brutally murdered for his work as a journalist, new questions continue to arise about his killing and the events that took place afterward. But while we don’t know the full story yet, one thing is clear: If the effort to cover up Khashoggi’s murder was designed to make the scandal go away, it couldn’t possibly have backfired in a bigger way.

 

Dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession but would not act while King Salman – the crown princes 82-year-old father – is still alive, the sources said.

They recognize that the king is unlikely to turn against his favorite son, known in the West as MbS.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king’s death, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 76, a younger full brother of King Salman and uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

Present Trump Iconography

The Man of Lawlessness

Amid international uproar over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, some members of Saudi Arabia’s ruling family are agitating to prevent Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from becoming king, three sources close to the royal court said.

Dozens of princes and cousins from powerful branches of the Al Saud family want to see a change in the line of succession but would not act while King Salman – the crown prince’s 82-year-old father – is still alive, the sources said. They recognize that the king is unlikely to turn against his favorite son, known in the West as MbS.

Rather, they are discussing the possibility with other family members that after the king’s death, Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, 76, a younger full brother of King Salman and uncle of the crown prince, could take the throne, according to the sources.

Prince Ahmed, King Salman’s only surviving full brother, would have the support of family members, the security apparatus and some Western powers, one of the Saudi sources said.

Prince Ahmed returned to Riyadh in October after 2-1/2 months abroad. During the trip, he appeared to criticize the Saudi leadership while responding to protesters outside a London residence chanting for the downfall of the Al Saud dynasty.

He was one of only three people on the Allegiance Council, made up of the ruling family’s senior members, who opposed MbS becoming crown prince in 2017, two Saudi sources said at the time.

Neither Prince Ahmed nor his representatives could be reached for comment. Officials in Riyadh did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters for comment on succession issues.

The House of Saud is made up of hundreds of princes. Unlike typical European monarchies, there is no automatic succession from father to eldest son. Instead the kingdoms tribal traditions dictate that the king and senior family members from each branch select the heir they consider fittest to lead.

Senior U.S. officials have indicated to Saudi advisers in recent weeks that they would support Prince Ahmed, who was deputy interior minister for nearly 40 years, as a potential successor, according to Saudi sources with direct knowledge of the consultations.

These Saudi sources said they were confident that Prince Ahmed would not change or reverse any of the social or economic reforms enacted by MbS, would honor existing military procurement contracts and would restore the unity of the family.

One senior U.S. official said the White House is in no hurry to distance itself from the crown prince despite pressure from lawmakers and the CIAs assessment that MbS ordered Khashoggis murder, though that could change once Trump gets a definitive report on the killing from the intelligence community.

The official also said the White House saw it as noteworthy that King Salman seemed to stand by his son in a speech in Riyadh on Monday and made no direct reference to Khashoggi’s killing, except to praise the Saudi public prosecutor.

The White House declined to comment.

The Saudi sources said U.S. officials had cooled on MbS not only because of his suspected role in the murder of Khashoggi. They are also rankled because the crown prince recently urged the Saudi defense ministry to explore alternative weapons supplies from Russia, the sources said.

In a letter dated May 15, seen by Reuters, the crown prince requested that the defense ministry “focus on purchasing weapon systems and equipment in the most pressing fields” and get training on them, including the Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile system.

Neither the Russian defense ministry nor officials in Riyadh immediately responded to Reuters requests for comment.

U.S. ROLE KEY

The brutal killing of Khashoggi, a prominent critic of the crown prince, in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month has drawn global condemnation, including from many politicians and officials in the United States, a key Saudi ally. The CIA believes the crown prince ordered the killing, according to U.S. sources familiar with the assessment.

Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor has said the crown prince knew nothing of the killing.

The international uproar has piled pressure on a royal court already divided over 33-year-old Prince Mohammed’s rapid rise to power. Since his ascension, the prince has gained popular support with high-profile social and economic reforms including ending a ban on women driving and opening cinemas in the conservative kingdom.

His reforms have been accompanied by a crackdown on dissent, a purge of top royals and businessmen on corruption charges, and a costly war in Yemen.

He has also marginalized senior members of the royal family and consolidated control over Saudis security and intelligence agencies.

He first ousted then-powerful crown prince and interior minister Mohammed bin Nayef (MbN), 59, in June 2017. Then he removed Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, 65, son of the late King Abdullah, as head of the National Guard and detained him as part of an anti-corruption campaign.

People will carry on regardless of CIA Saudi Arabia report, says pro

Some 30 other princes were also arrested, mistreated, humiliated and stripped of their wealth, even as MbS splashed out on palaces, a $500 million yacht, and set a new record in the international art market with the purchase of a painting by Italian Renaissance engineer and painter Leonardo Da Vinci.

The entire House of Saud has emerged weakened as a result.

According to one well-placed Saudi source, many princes from senior circles in the family believe a change in the line of succession “would not provoke any resistance from the security or intelligence bodies he controls” because of their loyalty to the wider family.

“They (the security apparatus) will follow any consensus reached by the family.”

Officials in Riyadh did not respond to a request for comment.

The United States, a key ally in economic and security terms, is likely to be a determining factor in how matters unfold in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi sources and diplomats say.

President Donald Trump on Saturday called the CIA assessment that MbS ordered Khashoggi’s killing “very premature” but “possible”, and said he would receive a complete report on the case on Tuesday.

Trump and his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner have cultivated deep personal relationships with the crown prince. One Saudi insider said MbS feels he still has their support and is willing to “roll some heads to appease the U.S.”

But Trump and top administration officials have said Saudi officials should be held to account for any involvement in Khashoggis death and have imposed sanctions on 17 Saudis for their alleged role including one of MbS’s closest aides.

U.S. lawmakers are meanwhile pushing legislation to punish Riyadh for the killing, and both Republican and Democratic senators have urged Trump to get tough on the crown prince.

King Salman, 82, is aware of the consequences of a major clash with the United States and the possibility that Congress could try to freeze Saudi assets.

Those who have met the king recently say he appeared to be in denial about the role of MbS in what happened, believing there to be a conspiracy against the kingdom. But they added that he looked burdened and worried.

ALLEGIANCE COUNCIL
When the king dies or is no longer be able to rule, the 34-member Allegiance Council, a body representing each line of the ruling family to lend legitimacy to succession decisions, would not automatically declare MbS the new king.

Even as crown prince, MbS would still need the council to ratify his ascension, one of the three Saudi sources said. While the council accepted King Salman’s wish to make MbS crown prince, it would not necessarily accept MbS becoming king when his father dies, especially given that he sought to marginalise council members.

Officials in Riyadh did not respond to a request for comment.

The Saudi sources say MbS has destroyed the institutional pillars of nearly a century of Al Saud rule: the family, the clerics, the tribes and the merchant families. They say this is seen inside the family as destabilising.

Despite the controversy over Khashoggi’s killing, MbS is continuing to pursue his agenda.

Some insiders believe he built his father a new but remote Red Sea palace in Sharma, at the Neom City development site — thrown up in a record one year at a cost of $2 billion — as a gilded cage for his retirement.

The site is isolated, the closest city of Tabouk more than 100 km (60 miles) away. Residence there would keep the king out of the loop on most affairs of state, one of the sources close to the royal family said.

Officials in Riyadh did not respond to a request for comment.

Full-Speed Ahead for Our “Dictator-for-Life” ? Why Amphetamine Makes Donald Trump Believe He Can Get Away with Overthrowing the American Government and Installing Himself as Absolute Dictator: an Overview of Trumps Coming “Crash” | Measure 144 ~ Missive 377

Hope Hicks Admits President Trump Used Drugs

That Helped With ADHD

 Speed Kills: An Alarming Revelation:
 Why Donald Trump is Exhibiting Signs of Mental Collapse and Paranoia

Kurt Eichenwald, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, as well as a New York Times bestselling author, said that hspoke with White House Communications Director Hope Hicks by telephone, and asked her about President Trump’s use of amphetamines.

Image result for Hope Hicks

Hope Hicks admitted that Trump used them, but said that he only took them for “a  few days”.

When Eichenwald said that records showed that he used them for eight years, Hicks then called him “a liberal” and hung up.

The question is, is Trump still using them? That would explain his changing and often erratic behavior.

Eichenwald was referring to an article published by Spy Magazine that exposed the practices of one of Trump’s personal doctors, Dr. Greenberg, who was giving him drugs for a ‘metabolic imbalance.’ That’s really a fancy way of saying Trump wanted a fat burner.

It was also published in biography Lost Tycoon by author Harry Hurt, that said the amphetamines prescribed to Trump contributed to “Donald’s mood swings” and “fits of distemper,” much like those expressed by people with ADHD.

Even though Trump wasn’t officially diagnosed with the learning disorder, it’s said that the amphetamines he took would give him focus and energy, helping to combat any mental fatigue expressed by ADHD.

“Donald was so delighted with the results that he started recommending Dr. Greenberg’s treatments to his brother Robert, various friends, and celebrity acquaintances such as Diana Ross.

The diet drugs, which he took in pill form, not only curbed his appetite but gave him a feeling of euphoria and unlimited energy. The medical literature warned that some potentially dangerous side effects could result from long-term usage; they included anxiety, insomnia, and delusions of grandeur.

According to several Trump Organization insiders, Donald exhibited all these ominous symptoms of diet drug usage, and then some.

’ The first thing I would do when I got to the office in the morning,” recalled one former vice-president, “was to go see Norma Foerderer and ask her,

‘Is this a Dr. Greenberg day?’

If she said yes, I would do everything I could to stay out of Donald’s way.’

The End of Democracy and the Beginning of the Madhouse of Trump

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute

I’m not a fan of Communist China.

It’s a vicious totalitarian regime that routinely employs censorship, surveillance, and brutal police state tactics to intimidate its populace, maintain its power, and expand the largesse of its corporate elite.

Just recently, in fact, China – an economic and political powerhouse that owns more of America’s debt than any other country and is buying up American businesses across the spectrum – announced its plan to make its president, Xi Jinping, president for life.

President Trump jokingly thinks that’s a great idea.

Trump thinks the idea of having a president for life is so great, in fact, that America might want to move in that direction.

“Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday,” joked Trump.

The Bible of Trump: his personal copy of Mein Kampf, at which his bemused son Barron fixatedly stares is that hideous betrayal of America hidden in the Red Box

Here’s the thing: we already have a president for life.
Sure, the names and faces and parties have changed over the years, but really, when you drill down under the personalities and political theater, you’ll find that the changing names and faces are merely cosmetic: no matter who sits on the throne, the office of the president of the United States has, for all intents and purposes, become a unilateral power unto itself.
Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents (Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.) have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.
The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whomever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

The presidency itself has become an imperial one with permanent powers.

As law professor William P. Marshall explains,
….“every extraordinary use of power by one President expands the availability of executive branch power for use by future Presidents.” Moreover, it doesn’t even matter whether other presidents have chosen not to take advantage of any particular power, because “it is a President’s action in using power, rather than forsaking its use, that has the precedential significance.
In other words, each successive president continues to add to his office’s list of extraordinary orders and directives, expanding the reach and power of the presidency and granting him- or herself near dictatorial powers.
So you see, we have been saddled with a “president for life”—i.e., a dictator for life—for some time now.

This abuse of presidential powers has been going on for so long that it has become the norm, the Constitution be damned.
The government of laws idealized by John Adams has fallen prey to a government of men.
As a result, we no longer have a system of checks and balances.

“…All of the imperial powers amassed by Barack Obama and George W. Bush—to kill American citizens without due process, to detain suspects indefinitely, to strip Americans of their citizenship rights, to carry out mass surveillance on Americans without probable cause, to suspend laws during wartime, to disregard laws with which he might disagree, to conduct secret wars and convene secret courts, to sanction torture, to sidestep the legislatures and courts with executive orders and signing statements, to direct the military to operate beyond the reach of the law, to operate a shadow government, and to act as a dictator and a tyrant, above the law and beyond any real accountability—were inherited by Donald Trump….”

These presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.
These are the powers that will be passed along to each successive heir to the Oval Office.
This is what you might call a stealthy, creeping, silent, slow-motion coup d’etat.

Donald Trump has already picked up where his predecessors left off: he has continued to wage war, he has continued to federalize the police, and he operates as if the Constitution does not apply to him.
As tempting as it may be to lay all the blame at Trump’s feet for the totalitarian state of the nation right now, remember that he didn’t create the police state.
He merely inherited it, along with the dictatorial powers of the presidency.
If we are to return to a constitutional presidency, we must recalibrate the balance of power.
As I make clear in my book “Battlefield America: The War on the American People“, the only thing that will save us now is a concerted, collective commitment to the Constitution’s principles of limited government, a system of checks and balances, and a recognition that they—the president, Congress, the courts, the military, the police, the technocrats and plutocrats and bureaucrats—answer to and are accountable to “we the people.”
As historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. points out,
Holding a President to strict accountability requires, first of all, a new attitude on the part of the American people toward their Presidents, or rather a return to the more skeptical attitude of earlier times: it requires, specifically, a decline in reverence… The age of the imperial presidency has produced the idea that run-of-the-mill politicians, brought by fortuity to the White House, must be treated thereafter as if they have become superior and perhaps godlike beings.”
Schlesinger continues:
“If the nation wants to work its way back to a constitutional presidency, there is only one way to begin. That is by showing Presidents that, when their closest associates place themselves above the law and the Constitution, such transgressions will be not forgiven or forgotten for the sake of the presidency but exposed and punished for the sake of the presidency.”
In other words, we’ve got to stop treating the president like a god and start making both the office of the president and the occupant play by the rules of the Constitution

Trump Didn’t Pay Porn Star Hush Money

— Because He Stiffed His Own Lawyer: Report

By @MargHartman

Michael Cohen, the real-life Barry Zuckerkorn. Photo: BRYAN R. SMITH/AFP/Getty Images

It appears President Trump may have dodged the consequences of one shady habit, conducting extramarital affairs, by indulging in another unscrupulous habit: refusing to pay his employees.

Last month Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, released a statement that seemed to suggest he paid Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed she had an affair with Trump – $130,000 of his own money right before the 2016 election. Supposedly, it had nothing to do with his boss.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said.

Wall Street Journal report released on Monday suggests it’s possible Cohen wasn’t reimbursed for the payment — but not for lack of trying:

Mr. Cohen said he missed two deadlines earlier that month to make the $130,000 payment to Ms. Clifford because he couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign, the person said.

Ms. Clifford was owed the money in return for signing an agreement that bars her from discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006, people familiar with the matter said.

After Mr. Trump’s victory, Mr. Cohen complained to friends that he had yet to be reimbursed for the payment to Ms. Clifford, the people said.

In his carefully worded statement, Cohen said he used his own money to “facilitate” the payment to Clifford, and records show he set up an LLC in Delaware on October 17, 2016, to make the payment to her attorney.

While Cohen noted that he was not reimbursed by Trump’s business or campaign, he did not rule out the possibility that he was reimbursed by Trump personally.

The Journal also reported on Tuesday that First Republic Bank flagged Cohen’s transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department. It’s not clear when that occurred, but it was previously reported that the bank used by Clifford’s attorney, City National Bank in Los Angeles, launched it own internal inquiry in September 2017.

The year-long lag is unusual, and suggests that the bank may have received more information about the transaction — possibly a subpoena or a visit from regulators. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team would not comment on whether it prompted the inquiry.

Cohen and Trump might have violated the law even if Cohen was just acting on his bosses’ presumed wishes, and still hasn’t been reimbursed. Mueller probe aside, Cohen’s payment could be seen as an illegal campaign donation if his intent was to shield Trump from the political fallout of a porn star going public with her tawdry tale of spanking and Shark Week viewings just before Election Day.

There’s no limit on what candidates can donate to their own campaign, but if Trump eventually paid Cohen back, he might have violated campaign-finance laws by failing to report it.

Experts say, however, that it’s unlikely Trump and Cohen would see serious penalties for the crime. (Former senator John Edwards was tried on similar crimes, but the jury was deadlocked on most charges.) On the other hand, the president’s attorney seems almost determined to make the situation worse.

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.

“…..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.

Rasputin: 1914

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.

The End of Democracy and the Beginning of the Madhouse of Trump

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute

I’m not a fan of Communist China.

It’s a vicious totalitarian regime that routinely employs censorship, surveillance, and brutal police state tactics to intimidate its populace, maintain its power, and expand the largesse of its corporate elite.

Just recently, in fact, China – an economic and political powerhouse that owns more of America’s debt than any other country and is buying up American businesses across the spectrum – announced its plan to make its president, Xi Jinping, president for life.

President Trump jokingly thinks that’s a great idea.
Trump thinks the idea of having a president for life is so great, in fact, that America might want to move in that direction.
“Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday,” joked Trump.

The Bible of Trump: his personal copy of Mein Kampf, at which his bemused son Barron fixatedly stares is that hideous betrayal of America hidden in the Red Box

Here’s the thing: we already have a president for life.
Sure, the names and faces and parties have changed over the years, but really, when you drill down under the personalities and political theater, you’ll find that the changing names and faces are merely cosmetic: no matter who sits on the throne, the office of the president of the United States has, for all intents and purposes, become a unilateral power unto itself.
Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents (Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.) have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.
The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whomever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

The presidency itself has become an imperial one with permanent powers.

As law professor William P. Marshall explains,
….“every extraordinary use of power by one President expands the availability of executive branch power for use by future Presidents.” Moreover, it doesn’t even matter whether other presidents have chosen not to take advantage of any particular power, because “it is a President’s action in using power, rather than forsaking its use, that has the precedential significance.
In other words, each successive president continues to add to his office’s list of extraordinary orders and directives, expanding the reach and power of the presidency and granting him- or herself near dictatorial powers.
So you see, we have been saddled with a “president for life”—i.e., a dictator for life—for some time now.

This abuse of presidential powers has been going on for so long that it has become the norm, the Constitution be damned.
The government of laws idealized by John Adams has fallen prey to a government of men.
As a result, we no longer have a system of checks and balances.

“…All of the imperial powers amassed by Barack Obama and George W. Bush—to kill American citizens without due process, to detain suspects indefinitely, to strip Americans of their citizenship rights, to carry out mass surveillance on Americans without probable cause, to suspend laws during wartime, to disregard laws with which he might disagree, to conduct secret wars and convene secret courts, to sanction torture, to sidestep the legislatures and courts with executive orders and signing statements, to direct the military to operate beyond the reach of the law, to operate a shadow government, and to act as a dictator and a tyrant, above the law and beyond any real accountability—were inherited by Donald Trump….”

These presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.
These are the powers that will be passed along to each successive heir to the Oval Office.
This is what you might call a stealthy, creeping, silent, slow-motion coup d’etat.

Donald Trump has already picked up where his predecessors left off: he has continued to wage war, he has continued to federalize the police, and he operates as if the Constitution does not apply to him.
As tempting as it may be to lay all the blame at Trump’s feet for the totalitarian state of the nation right now, remember that he didn’t create the police state.
He merely inherited it, along with the dictatorial powers of the presidency.
If we are to return to a constitutional presidency, we must recalibrate the balance of power.
As I make clear in my book “Battlefield America: The War on the American People“, the only thing that will save us now is a concerted, collective commitment to the Constitution’s principles of limited government, a system of checks and balances, and a recognition that they—the president, Congress, the courts, the military, the police, the technocrats and plutocrats and bureaucrats—answer to and are accountable to “we the people.”
As historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. points out,
Holding a President to strict accountability requires, first of all, a new attitude on the part of the American people toward their Presidents, or rather a return to the more skeptical attitude of earlier times: it requires, specifically, a decline in reverence… The age of the imperial presidency has produced the idea that run-of-the-mill politicians, brought by fortuity to the White House, must be treated thereafter as if they have become superior and perhaps godlike beings.”
Schlesinger continues:
“If the nation wants to work its way back to a constitutional presidency, there is only one way to begin. That is by showing Presidents that, when their closest associates place themselves above the law and the Constitution, such transgressions will be not forgiven or forgotten for the sake of the presidency but exposed and punished for the sake of the presidency.”
In other words, we’ve got to stop treating the president like a god and start making both the office of the president and the occupant play by the rules of the Constitution

Trump Didn’t Pay Porn Star Hush Money

— Because He Stiffed His Own Lawyer: Report

By @MargHartman

It appears President Trump may have dodged the consequences of one shady habit, conducting extramarital affairs, by indulging in another unscrupulous habit: refusing to pay his employees.

Last month Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, released a statement that seemed to suggest he paid Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed she had an affair with Trump – $130,000 of his own money right before the 2016 election. Supposedly, it had nothing to do with his boss.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said.

Wall Street Journal report released on Monday suggests it’s possible Cohen wasn’t reimbursed for the payment — but not for lack of trying:

Mr. Cohen said he missed two deadlines earlier that month to make the $130,000 payment to Ms. Clifford because he couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign, the person said.

Ms. Clifford was owed the money in return for signing an agreement that bars her from discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006, people familiar with the matter said.

After Mr. Trump’s victory, Mr. Cohen complained to friends that he had yet to be reimbursed for the payment to Ms. Clifford, the people said.

In his carefully worded statement, Cohen said he used his own money to “facilitate” the payment to Clifford, and records show he set up an LLC in Delaware on October 17, 2016, to make the payment to her attorney.

While Cohen noted that he was not reimbursed by Trump’s business or campaign, he did not rule out the possibility that he was reimbursed by Trump personally.

The Journal also reported on Tuesday that First Republic Bank flagged Cohen’s transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department. It’s not clear when that occurred, but it was previously reported that the bank used by Clifford’s attorney, City National Bank in Los Angeles, launched it own internal inquiry in September 2017.

The year-long lag is unusual, and suggests that the bank may have received more information about the transaction — possibly a subpoena or a visit from regulators. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team would not comment on whether it prompted the inquiry.

Cohen and Trump might have violated the law even if Cohen was just acting on his bosses’ presumed wishes, and still hasn’t been reimbursed. Mueller probe aside, Cohen’s payment could be seen as an illegal campaign donation if his intent was to shield Trump from the political fallout of a porn star going public with her tawdry tale of spanking and Shark Week viewings just before Election Day.

There’s no limit on what candidates can donate to their own campaign, but if Trump eventually paid Cohen back, he might have violated campaign-finance laws by failing to report it.

Experts say, however, that it’s unlikely Trump and Cohen would see serious penalties for the crime. (Former senator John Edwards was tried on similar crimes, but the jury was deadlocked on most charges.) On the other hand, the president’s attorney seems almost determined to make the situation worse.

Hypocritical right-wing religious nationalists have a plan to create a new Christian America

– and that’s why they put up with Trump

It’s just beginning to dawn on folks how much Donald Trump’s presidency relies on religious support. All the scandals surrounding Trump have brought intense attention to the 81 percent support he received from evangelical Christians in the 2016 election. New research by Andrew Whitehead, meanwhile, explicates such support in the context of Christian nationalism, and historian John Fea has published an important new book, “Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump.

But the power of the presidency isn’t the only way Christian nationalism is advancing its agenda in America today. As researcher Frederick Clarkson reported at Religion Dispatches, a coalition of Christian right groups — including the Congressional Prayer Caucus FoundationWallbuilders, the National Legal Foundation and others — have organized a major legislative initiative called  “Project Blitz.” Its goal is to pass an outwardly diverse but internally cohesive package of Christian-right bills at the state level, whose cumulative impact would be immense.

The agenda underlying these bills is not merely about Christian nationalism, a term that describes an Old Testament-based worldview fusing Christian and American identities, and meant to sharpen the divide between those who belong to those groups and those who are excluded. It’s also ultimately “dominionist,” meaning that it doubles down on the historically false notion of America as a “Christian nation” to insist that a a particular sectarian view of God should control every aspect of life, through all manner of human institutions. Christian nationalists are not in a position to impose their vision now, and to be fair, many involved in the movement would never go that far. But as explained by Julie Ingersoll inBuilding God’s Kingdom: Inside the World of Christian Reconstruction” (Salon interview here), dominionist ideas have had enormous influence on the religious right, even among those who overtly disavow them.

“The authors of the Project Blitz playbook are savvy purveyors of dominionism,” Clarkson told Salon. “They are in it for the long haul and try not to say things that sound too alarming. ​But they live an immanent theocratic vision, and they sometimes cannot help themselves, such as when they describe the resolutions as seeking to ‘define public policies of the state in favor of biblical values concerning marriage and sexuality.’

“Among the ways they are seeking to implement ‘biblical values,’” Clarkson continued, “is by seeking religious exemptions from civil rights laws and professional licensing standards.” The two-tiered society this would create reflects the essence of Christian nationalism, as Whitehead describes it.

Whitehead told Salon: “Our work shows that believing that the United States is a ‘Christian nation’ and desiring a close, symbiotic relationship between Christianity and civil society is significantly associated with a number of stances like opposition toward same-sex marriage, antipathy toward religious minorities and a tendency toward endorsing stricter racial boundaries in romantic and family relationships.” So it makes sense, he continued, “that these groups who advocate for a formal recognition of the ‘Christian nation’ narrative are also seeking to formalize support for particular definitions of marriage, gender identity and family structure” — definitions that elevate some people and effectively subjugate others.

So far, supporters of this initiative have introduced 71 bills nationwide this year (or carried them over from last year), according ttracking by Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Most have innocuous or feel-good names like the National Motto Display Act (23 bills), the First Amendment Defense Act (10 bills), the Child Protection Act (four bills), the Bible Literacy Act (eight bills) and the Clergy Protection Act (six bills). The goal is to come across as apple-pie Americans, while copying the conservative pro-corporate model of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which has been strikingly successful. But the guiding vision behind Project Blitz is heavily influenced bpseudo-historian David Barton, a leading propagandist for the myth that America was founded as a “Christian nation.”

 

 “David Barton has been discredited by every American historian I know, including evangelical historians who teach at the most conservative Christian colleges in the country, including Bob Jones University and Liberty University,” John Fea (author of the above-mentioned “Believe Me”) told Salon. “He is a politician who uses the past for his own political agenda.”

But that’s not the whole story. “Having said that, he is one of the most important people in American politics today,” Fea continued. “Why? If Andrew Whitehead and his colleagues are correct, evangelicals supported Trump because they believe America was founded as, and continues to be, a Christian nation. No one has promoted this narrative more effectively than David Barton.”

The war injury conjured up by the name “Project Blitz” is no accident. This is religious war in the minds of those waging it, and they’ve got specific goals and strategies in mind. But it’s not easy for outsiders to see what’s going on here, as Clarkson explains in his story:

The bills are seemingly unrelated and range widely in content — from requiring public schools to display the national motto, “In God We Trust” (IGWT); to legalizing discrimination against LGBTQ people; to religious exemptions regarding women’s reproductive health. The model bills, the legislative strategy and the talking points reflect the theocratic vision that has animated many in the Christian Right for some time. In the context of Project Blitz’s 116-page playbook, however, they also reveal a highly sophisticated level of coordination and strategizing that echoes the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which infamously networks pro-business state legislators, drafts legislation, and shares legislative ideas and strategies.

 

The Right Wing Coup in the Dirksen Building in Washington DC

The bills are organized into three tiers, “according to the degree of opposition they anticipate — 1 being the least,” Clarkson reports. “The general plan is to begin with the less controversial measures to get legislators comfortable with the subject matter; to seek small victories first.” The full meaning and significance of the earlier measures will not become readily apparent until later measures build on them and covertly synergies are revealed.

The first tier, “Legislation Regarding Our Country’s Religious Heritage,” aims at importing the Christian nationalist worldview (including Barton’s bogus history) into public schools and other aspects of the public sphere. It starts simply with display of the motto, “In God We Trust,” a Cold War replacement for “e pluribus unum” — out of many, one — which better reflects America’s pragmatic, pluralist foundations. The second tier, “Resolutions and Proclamations Recognizing the Importance of Religious History and Freedom,” aims at making government increasingly a partner in “Christianizing” America. The third tier, “Religious Liberty Protection Legislation,” has three subcategories, one dealing with “public policy resolutions,” the other two with specifically targeted but sweepingly conceived “protections” for religious practices.

“Category 3’s focus on religious liberty is especially relevant today,” in the wake of the Supreme Court’s historic Obergefell decision, said Daniel Bennett, author ofDefending Faith: The Politics of the Christian Conservative Legal Movement.” With same-sex marriage a settled issue, right-wing Christian groups “will want to prioritize protection for religious liberty, defined in their specific way. The Christian legal movement is fighting these battles in the court, but these sorts of legislative proposals show how wide-ranging the broader movement’s strategy is.”

It’s a defensive fight now, but it’s also laying the groundwork for a possible future counter-offensive. “Although Category 3 is divided in three parts, you could also see it as having two main underlying intentions,” said Clarkson. “First to denigrate the LGBTQ community, and second to defend and advance the right to discriminate.

This is one way that the agenda of theocratic dominionism is reframed as protecting the right of theocrats to discriminate against those deemed second-class, at best. As the late theocratic theologian R.J. Rushdoony said, ‘Only the right have rights.‘”

Bills protecting the “right” to discriminate against the LGBTQ community are the most salient example of how Project Blitz aims to produce a radically altered “Handmaid’s Tale-style America. But even the most innocent-seeming proposal — introducing the motto “In God We Trust” into schools — has a divisive, discriminatory, damaging impact, sharply at odds with its presentation.

“To an ex-evangelical such as myself, Project Blitz is deeply concerning,” Christopher Stroop told Salon. Stroop is a scholar, writer and Twitter personality with a history and humanities Ph.D. from Stanford, who is currently senior research associate with the Postsecular Conflicts project. As he says, he spent many years in the evangelical world.

“When I was growing up in the 1980s,” Stroop said, “two issues that were frequently lamented in my evangelical community were the legalization of abortion and the supposed banning of prayer in school — ‘supposed’ because the right-wing evangelicals I grew up with usually failed to note that the Supreme Court had only ended officially school-sponsored prayer, and had not outlawed private prayer in schools. Extreme exaggeration of the ostensible persecution we supposedly faced as Christians was prevalent in my childhood milieu.”

The attempt to reverse that imagined persecution can have real damaging effects, as Stroop notes. In examining the goal of requiring “In God We Trust” to be displayed in public schools, he said, “I cannot help but associate this goal with evangelical resentment over legal limitations on prayer in school, and to see it as an attempt to take a step toward the Christianization of public schools. On its own, posting the motto ‘In God We Trust’ in schools would already embolden Christian nationalists present in those schools, leading Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, liberal and atheist children to feel alienated and pressured to conform.”

The End of Democracy in America:

the Seduction of the GOP and Religious Right in the Conservative South

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

The Unlawful End of Democracy

The Unlawful End of Democracy

For those who were there on March 13th, at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, saw the opening ceremony, with a rabbi blowing a ram’s horn.

“…….Most Jews would hold off on this until the High Holy Days, but it probably counts if the Moshiach shows up in a federal office building at taxpayer expense. Then we see the man of the hour, Moon, chilling at a table at the Dirksen in a tuxedo, soaking all this up. He claps. He’s having a ball.

Cut to the ritual. Eyes downcast, a man identified as Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) is bringing a crown, atop a velvety purple cushion, to a figure who stands waiting austerely with his wife. Now Moon is wearing robes that Louis XIV would have appreciated. All of this has quickly been spliced into a promo reel by Moon’s movement, which implies to its followers that the U.S. Congress itself has crowned the Washington Times owner…..”

 

The Breaking of the Bond of Integrity: the Corruption of the Senate

“……But Section 9 of the Constitution  forbids giving out titles of nobility,

setting a certain tone that might have made the Congressional hosts

shy about celebrating the coronation on their websites.

They included conservatives,

the traditional fans of Moon’s newspaper:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.),

Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA.),

Rep. Chris Cannon (R-Utah),

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.)

and Republican strategy god Charlie Black,

whose PR firm represents Ahmed Chalabi’s Iraqi National Congress……”

For those who think the Democrats were virgins in this matter I sadly point out this:

“………But there were also liberal House Democrats like Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) and Davis. Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) later told the Memphis Flyer that he’d been erroneously listed on the program, but had never heard of the event, which was sponsored by the Washington Times Foundation.  ( Now run by my “almost an acquaintance” Larry Moffitt ) 

Rep. Curt Weldon’s office tenaciously denied that the Congressman was there, before being provided by The Gadflyer with a photos quite accurate that the Washington Timeshost, but we have nothing to do with the agenda, the organization, the scheduling, and our role would be limited explicitly to the attendance of the Congressman…..”

Heavenly Deception Strikes Again

 

“…….The spokeswoman for one senator, who asked that her boss not be named, said politicians weren’t told the awards program was going to be a Moon event.

The senator went, she said, because the Ambassadors promised to hand out awards to people from his home state, people who were genuinely accomplished. When the ceremony morphed into a platform for Moon, she said, people were disconcerted.

“I think there was a mass exodus,” she said.

“They get all these senators on the floor, and this freak is there.”

Joshua Abraham: Norton the First, and Jedidiah Ephraim: Norton the Last

Joshua Abraham: Norton the First, and Jedidiah Ephraim: Norton the Last

A New World Order

“……The last time someone declared himself Emperor of the United States, it was the Gold Rush’s Joshua Norton, a sort of failed dot-commer of the 1850s. But he was broke, whereas a random sampling of Moon’s properties might include a healthy chunk of the U.S. fishing industry, the graphic tablet company Wacom, and swaths of real estate on an epic scale. The money-losing Times is paid for by the $1 billion he’s sunk into it, along with untold funding for conservative policy foundations like the American Family Coalition.

George Soros has recently gotten lots of coverage as a supposedly eccentric billionaire influencing U.S. politics. But Soros is no Moon. In Moon’s speeches, a “peace kingdom” is envisioned, in which homosexuals – whom he calls “dung-eating dogs” – would be a thing of the past.

He said in January: “Gays will be eliminated, the three Israel’s will unite. If not, then they will be burned. We do not know what kind of world God will bring, but this is what happens. It will be greater than the communist purge but at God’s orders.”

TRUMP…and the “REAL DEAL”

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.

“….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…”

A Comparison in Perspectives

Harvey Lewis                                       

“….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.

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

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

Share on Facebook

 

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.
