John Bolton --Feeling Self-righteous?

 

The John Bolton-CNN interview Wednesday was an interesting one. The former National Security Adviser to president Trump blamed everybody else for what went wrong with either his tenure as Trump's Security Adviser or the Democrats for 'impeachment malpractice', according to him. One cannot but wonder, is it the age, is it about intellect, or is it about cultural background? He does not seem to take responsibility for anything, but was self-righteous enough to blame others for not doing their job, even though he was conspicuously absent when it was time to perform a patriotic duty, by refusing to show up before the impeachment panel. Ironically, but not surprising, John Bolton sounds very much like Trump--'It's not me, it's them.' Although he was supposed to be exposing the misdeeds of the Trump administration as made available in his book, the interview showed that he was trying hard to rise above the very limited world view of the average American, white, conservative Republican. If being white and Republican blocks anyone from rendering truth and facts without equivocation, I'm afraid you're all going to learn to grow up in a not-too-comfortable process. But it's surely going to happen. You are all going to learn to call a spade a spade.

Did John Bolton succeed in winning over an extra heart? Certainly not this one, he may have been exposing truths, many of which are already known to the public, but he was just as cozy in his corner as those he accused of extreme views. And put side by side, those other views he talked about actually represent the majority of the people, which is what governance should be about. Views like his are becoming obsolete and will not endure. As one of the enablers of the government he is now criticizing in his book, the view is, 'if he's like me, he doesn't have to be held accountable.' Put another way, 'We are not accountable because of who we are.' That is not a righteous position anytime, not by the standards of those whose job positions are informed by integrity, truth, and honor, and certainly not by God's Word which the conservative Republican ironically likes to lay claim to. However, Mr. Bolton should be congratulated for even granting an interview on CNN.

Still Wondering Why?





                                       Be Real!
Cannot and will not accuse Joe Biden, former Vice President of the United States of engaging in racist talks because it is obvious he is a man of the people. And that includes everybody. But his "you ain't black" comment directed at black people who may be trying to decide between him and Trump is to say the least an expression out of kilter. He tried to make a great point but without sound judgment. However, it is extremely difficult to impossible to find a white man or person of his age who does not believe in racial superiority. It looks like that's how they were raised--doesn't make it excusable --and when it has been drilled into your head over a long period of time, it becomes the way you look at people who are of African descent. THAT IS REALITY! Yet, some have found it in the goodness of their heart to accept all people as equal even though being accepted as such is everybody's right.

LOOKING BACK A LITTLE

Bill Clinton, former President of the United States was quoted in 2008 as having said of Barack Obama who was on his way to becoming president of the United States, "A few years ago this guy would have been getting us coffee." Joe Biden's remark which has drawn much fire recently on Twitter is made in the same vein. It is the arrogance of the white man in connection with slavery. It is not by accident that both Joe Biden and Bill Clinton sound alike in their meanings. Would a person be less white if he was making a consideration between Trump and Biden? No! Sometimes it is to please their white listeners, and sometimes it is out of sheer arrogance. At other times, it is when a black person is winning, like Barack Obama in 2008, and who in the consideration of some was not supposed to win. The way to wound a black person's pride and make him or her feel less than is to remind them of the days of slavery. This behavior will remain for a little longer, even though it is now being openly challenged and those fighting this obnoxious behavior will win.

FOR HOW MUCH LONGER?

We are seeing the last days of this kind of behavior, the rush to give a black person a derogatory name who may be behaving or has behaved like any other human being in a similar situation, and often which has nothing to do with the issue at hand. First, the majority of such people are now looking at the exit, they are getting old. Secondly, it is obvious that there are some in the younger generation who are following their example, but I guarantee you God is at hand to deal decisively with the matter. The challenges America has not seen are more that the ones it has seen, where feeling like a lord will be out of the question.

Unmasking A Traitor




UNMASKING THE TRAITOR BEHIND THE VEIL

It was the right thing to do. Michael Flynn was disloyal to the United States. When the well-being and economic prosperity of another nation take precedence over yours in your dealings with them, you are disloyal to your country. In the case of Flynn, that is putting it mildly. His treacherous action on behalf of Trump regarding the Russian invasion of American space in connection with the 2016 presidential election is outright treason. Has anyone ever seen or heard of a security advisor who gave out the details of his country's security secrets to a foreign adversarial nation? Who is complaining about unmasking a traitor, but the traitor-in-chief? 
Nobody asked to unmask Michael Flynn but the traitor behind the veil, who happened to be identified as a traitor once the veil was lifted to see who was giving enemy power assistance against his nation. No, nobody was looking for Flynn but the enemy behind the veil. Trump and the GOP are living the delusion now, but it will become clear later it was a fight they could not win. Michael Flynn was and is a traitor, but so are all Republicans who are now lined up behind Donald Trump to use the resources of the United States to serve Russian interests. At the very least, Putin has got a stooge in the White House and it stinks.
The patriots who wanted to know why anyone would act so treacherously do so for the country they love and are justified by truth now and will be justified by history later.

Michael Flynn Committed Treason!



FLYNN IS A TRAITOR

He worked on behalf of a foreign, adversarial, nation against his own country and sitting president, with only one aim in mind, to elect Donald Trump president of the United States, by fraud. Traitors now run the government of the United States. Whether it is Bill Barr, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Michael Flynn, or their supporters in Congress who saw with the rest of the world the invitation by Trump and interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election by Vladimir Putin and Russian agents, the facts are clear. These stalwarts of Trump are attempting to rewrite history and they can't, because God is interested in the same record of events. In the end, Trump will end up with the stigma of thief, a president who came to office by treason! And who is now attempting to use other means , including Russian agents, to cheat again.
It may look like Trump, a shameless man, has the power to free Flynn now from prison time--does he?--but no matter what Donald Trump does, he remains a traitor for ever. He has mortgaged the fortunes of the United States to Russia in order to be president. In other words, he joined with Vladimir Putin and Russia to attack the U.S. AN ABOMINATION BEFORE GOD AND MAN! To all who are interested in truth and it's role in nation building, find out why Edom is no longer a nation on this planet--Obadiah 1:18. If you think this is ancient history, you are just as deluded as Trump. Donald Trump has inherited the curses of Edom and will become like it. He is living a lie in the presence of the whole world, while daily lying to and deceiving the American people. God is determined to give the victory to the United States and all who stand for justice  in this matter!

Trump And The Coronavirus

Trump's "There will be deaths."                                                                                                                                                                       

 Donald Trump better be careful what he's asking for. He talks about the expected number of deaths still from the coronavirus pandemic in a casual manner. He talks about people dying in a business-like manner, almost cavalierly as if he's talking about things--"There will be deaths." But these are people--human lives. If the roles were reversed and the people around him start to die from the virus, would "there will be deaths" or there are deaths serve that description? How can a human being without empathy be the leader of people? The truth is the worst of the pandemic is yet to happen. Will he then announce to everyone 'there are deaths' when deaths start to happen around him, and can very well happen anytime?

 The truth is Donald Trump maybe a good father or grandfather to somebody, but certainly not a leader of people. He fails at the first test, empathy, consideration. And it is not like he's hiding the quality of fellow feeling for others, he doesn't have it. He is all-round not a leader, whether by conduct, by mannerisms, or by utterances. Neither is he a leader by intellectual, psychological, and emotional balance.The question is how did anybody grow up like that? Was it only money they talked about in his home? There doesn't seem to be much else. And when he says that people hate him, he's unable to see that he is a hater-- a lack of self-awareness, hence unable to lead. It is a case of mass failure. But the problem is he wants to be seen and heard for any and every reason, his acute shortcomings screaming after him. It is a sad American story and will be told for ages to come.

Coronavirus Cannot Stop Us

It is amazing and noteworthy how sidewalk manners are changing since the pandemic broke--at least in places where I walk. More than ever before, it appears it's just now about people. People walking in opposite directions on the sidewalk act very deferentially as they approach each other and one another. Those with more space on their side leave the sidewalk to create space for the much needed social distancing. And these days always followed by acknowledgment--by waving at each other, a raised fist, or a simple 'hello' said from a safe distance.
So, where was all this love and consideration prior to the coronavirus outbreak? They were always there but not put to real use. It appears that we have suddenly realized that life can be as fleeting as has been described. 'If for nothing else, let us show consideration to one another if that is the last thing we have the chance to do,' it seems. 
But Jesus was and is always about people, and cares more for us and our needs than we have the capacity to appreciate. God's Word is the only platform on earth that has the ability to bring truth and its virtues to all in a universal way--as meaning the same thing. Even death on the cross for One who did not deserve to die, because "Greater love" can no one have than One who gave His Life for all people on earth. --John 15:13. And He saves from all situations, including one of the coronavirus. If it is a virus or a thing, it is subject to God's Word. It is all in the name of Jesus!
