Apparently, President Trump ordered bombing of Syria because the leader there had gassed his own people. Now where have we heard that one before?
The next thing we know, there will be accusations of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Syria. I mean, how dumb do these politicians think we are? Very dumb and easily manipulated, I guess.
And then I suppose we are. I sure have believed that Trump was a different type of politician, independent and not easily swayed by the neo-cons who have been pushing one horrible war after another in the Middle East.
Decades ago, the Arabs in the Middle East were our friends. As a child, I remember my parents enjoying a fabulous vacation in Egypt. Now that nation is torn up, as is Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc. etc.
Trump ran on a policy of putting America’s needs first. It is hard to imagine how this unprovoked bombing — based on dubious intelligence — was a good idea or put America first. The major hawk, Senator McCain, is thrilled. But here in Berkeley, I am disappointed, to say the least.
I have a Berkeley friend, a conservative, who never trusted Trump. My friend believes that the Democrats and Republicans are all the same, that is, willing shills of the bankers, the Federal Reserve and all of the players in the New World Order. I disagreed with him in the past, but now I’m wondering if he is right
If I had known then what I know now, would I have still voted for Trump? Yes, because the Clintons are a known quantity and deeply enmeshed in the NWO and all of the other nefarious forces out there. Is Trump? Maybe, probably. He may have been too good to be true.
The lesson for me — and for all of us? Don’t put one’s trust in a human leader. There is just too much corruption, too much money, and too much power in this world. And, as my friend had told me, no one is going to be elected President unless that person dances to the beat of the Powers that Be.
The only 100% trustworthy Force in this world is God. And given the events of the last 24 hours, and the terrifying potential of WW III, none of us have a moment to waste to get our acts together and start living our lives for Him.
