AIR FORCE ONE LANDS IN SAUDI ARABIA – RED CARPET TREATMENT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP

Donald Trump receives the (click)Red Carpet treatment from the Saudis. A shimmering blaze it was,  rolled out on the tarmac to welcome the President of the United States making his first trip abroad.

WAITING IN THE WINGS

North Korea, Iran, Israel, Syria and Venezuela have entered the big stage. One more provocation by the Boyman will most likely be addressed sooner rather than later. The pressure is now on China, who by the way is an existential threat to the world. The Chinese have won the checker game hands down, jumping from country to country. Spreading their web throughout the world is the main concern. However, they have been stymied at times because of their aggressive and ruthless tactics. Yes, they do bring in technology, capital and physical labor (all Chinese), but this has not sat well with the locals – fights have erupted due to their management style.

The Boyman, a spoil kid indeed; what father gives a country to their first born? For the bowl hairdo is more reminiscent of a punk rocker; what’s next a Mike Tyson tattoo.  Having his cake and eating it too will be short lived. As we see Venezuela crumbling quicker than the walls of Jericho, the North Koreans will soon take to the streets demanding food for their skeleton bodies. But that event will trigger the release of numerous fireworks headed toward the South. Waiting and watching demands patience, but as night follows day, patience is beginning to wear thin.

Syria, the cradle of death which is basically in the eyes of many, Tombstone territory. Cadavers piling up like logs in local mortuaries. The undertaker al-Assad loves the smell of burning flesh so much he has turned his palace into a crematorium. Good for him – when the whistling missile pierces his fallout shelter he will be where he wants to be; no hearse need calling.

Israel is always in the news. And why should it not be. Eight million Jews out of a world population approaching 8-9 billion, say 1/10 of 1% have caused the Middle East to go up in flames. Hey blame them for the  world ills. But the real facts are completely different because those who do the blaming are fragile dictators holding on to power for they have nothing else to offer but words, death to their critics and disaster to their countries. For instance the latest jerk by the name of Erdogan, a Turkish devil of sort, Jew hater, NATO blasphemer and soon to be taken out by not the  military, but by the will of the people. A similar coup d etat is waiting for him, just like the Muslim Brotherhood pimp Morsi of Egypt.

Turkey by the way has unleashed bombs on the Kurds, our team does not take these killings lightly. Trump and his team are waiting for the moment to threaten the diminutive back stabber. His latest threat to Israel is a call for Muslims to visits the al-Aqasa mosque in Jerusalem. As our defense establishment processes the most recent proclamations, there can be no doubt the United States will have to choose sides. Turkey or the Kurds, it can’t be both. We go with the Kurds.  By the way where is the Pope on this one. He should call for all Christians to immediately visit the Hagia Sophia. Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

HISTORY IS IMPORTANT IN THE MIDDLE EAST – READ BELOW FROM WIKIPEDIA

From the date of its construction in 537 AD, and until 1453, it served as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted by the Fourth Crusaders to a Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was later converted into an Ottoman mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935. Famous in particular for its massive dome, it is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have “changed the history of architecture”. It remained the world’s largest cathedral for nearly a thousand years, until Seville Cathedral was completed in 1520.

The current building was originally constructed as a church between 532 and 537 on the orders of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I and was the third Church of the Holy Wisdom to occupy the site, the previous two having been destroyed by rioters. It was designed by the Greek geometers Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralles.The church was dedicated to the Wisdom of God, the Logos, the second person of the Trinity,[6] its patronal feast taking place on 25 December, the commemoration of the birth of the incarnation of the Logos in Christ. Although sometimes referred to as Sancta Sophia (as though it were named after Sophia the Martyr), sophia being the phonetic spelling in Latin of the Greek word for wisdom, its full name in Greek is Ναὸς της ἉΑγίας τουῦ Θεού Σοφίας, Naos tēs Hagias tou Theou Sophias, “Shrine of the Holy Wisdom of God”. The church contained a large collection of relics and featured, among other things, a 15-metre (49 ft) silver iconostasis. The focal point of the Eastern Orthodox Church for nearly one thousand years, the building witnessed the excommunication of Patriarch Michael I Cerularius on the part of Humbert of Silva Candida, the papal envoy of Pope Leo IX in 1054, an act that is commonly considered the start of the East–West Schism.

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Empire under Mehmed the Conqueror, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque. The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were destroyed and the mosaics depicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also destroyed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrab, minbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia was, as of 2014, the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.[11] According to data released by the Turkish Culture and Tourism Ministry, Hagia Sophia was Turkey’s most visited tourist attraction in 2015.

From its initial conversion until the construction of the nearby Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque of Istanbul) in 1616, it was the principal mosque of Istanbul. The Byzantine architecture of the Hagia Sophia served as inspiration for many other Ottoman mosques, such as the aforementioned mosque, the Şehzade Mosque, the Süleymaniye Mosque, the Rüstem Pasha Mosque and the Kılıç Ali Pasha Complex.

MIDDLE EAST CHRISTIANS AT A CROSS-ROADS

Not a day goes by where Christians are blown to bits, unsightly slaughtered by violent Jihadists. Contrary to what some leaders say, the Middle Eastern Christians are on the verge of extinction; hope is fa figment of their imagination. They have no choice, move or be killed. Bloody as it sounds, the reality is that it is happening under the eyes of the Christian world who either looks the other way or wishes it went away.

There is no appeasing the radical mindset of a Islamist. At first it was the Jews who pay the Dhimmi, with them gone the Islamists go after the Christians. Unless all Christians are eradicated from countries with large Muslim populations the blowing-up, targeting, harassing, killing, raping will continue. Pray for peace, but the reality is peace to us is war to them.

OBAMA CERTAINLY SURPRISED US – WHAT DID HE SAY WHEN VISITING THE MOSQUE

We give President Obama accolades for telling it like it is. For instance ( AS REPORTED BY THE WSJ), he said, “Muslim political leaders have to push back on the lie that the West oppresses Muslims, and against the conspiracy theories that say America is the cause of every ill in the Middle East.” he also mentioned historic prejudice against Jewish-Americans, and especially important point given the virulent anti-Semitism in many Muslim communities.” 

 

But did he have to go there. Was it a wise choice?

HOW MANY TIMES CAN WE WRITE ABOUT THIS – MID-EAST CHRISTIANS ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

Christians are facing the Muslim sword throughout the Middle East. The latest being the killing of Pakistani Christians. The 97-percent Muslim nation that straddles the Middle East and Asia is one of the most dangerous places in the world for Christians, according to an annual report published last month by the State Department following calls by the U.S. Center for International Religious Freedom to include the country in its list of “Countries of Particular Concern.”

What gets our goat is the hipocrisy of Jordan’s King Abudllah and the Jew hater Palestinian Abbas continue to profess their desire to protect their Christians and the Christian holy sites of Jerusalem. What a joke. They should look around and see how many Christians are living there. The only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe is in Israel.

The world doesn’t care what happens to Christians when the likes Merkl and Obama support the settling of  Muslim invaders into their countries. And the U.N., a far leftist organization, run by Muslims surreptitiously laugh behind close doors as the Muslims flow across European borders.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Emirates, Qatar look the other way when they say, “no immigrants welcome here.”

MIDDLE EAST CHRISTIANITY HAS GONE THE WAY OF THE DINOSUARS

So let it be said, so let it be done. Countries ruled by the Islamists have either killed or run the Christians from their historic homelands. Turkey and Iran are bereft of Christians. The interesting narrative here is that the Christian world under the leadership of the Pope turns a blind eye to the killing of their brethren. The Muslims who give solace to the remaining Christians do so as a public relations gimmick. Erdogan of Turkey is a perfect example.

Christianity in the Middle East is in a death spiral. Once the majority they soon will be non existent. Turkey, once a 100% Christian nation has only 200,000 remaining out of a population of 80,000,000. Christian Europe, the appeaser of appeasers, stand by while their people are murdered by today’s Muslim Mongols. This is a battle of culture; peace on one side, mass murder on the other. When will they learn that there is no compromise in accommodating a religion of destruction, killing and rape.

OBAMA DOES IT AGAIN SAYS MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Obama does it again

The Muslim Marxist in the White Mosque continues, on a daily basis, to exceed our expectations. Just when you think he can’t get any more lawless, or corrupt, or incompetent, or traitorous, he does. But like he claims to be the case with American’s achievements, he doesn’t do it alone. He’s had massive assistance from the “mainstream” media, the Democrat Party, and to the disgust of patriotic Americans nationwide, the Republican Establishment.

In spite of it being so obvious that his “executive amnesty” scam is blatantly unconstitutional – and therefore blatantly illegal – so obvious that even a federal judge ruled against it and placed an injunction on it, Obama has continued to push through his scheme to overrun the country with semi-literate, unskilled, often violently criminal, illegal alien invaders who have no understanding of America, nor any loyalty to it. But Obama and his co-conspirators are all supremely confident that the invaders will vote Democrat, thus ensuring radical leftist rule in America in perpetuity.

And why wouldn’t the Democrats and the Chamber of Commerce Establishment Republicans be confident of this when a recent left-wing Pew Research Center study (http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/03/28/hold-think-tank-illegal-immigrant-males-more-likely-to-be-in-workforce-than-legal-immigrants-us-born-men/) shows illegals have stolen jobs to the point they are employed at a higher rate than native-born Americans or legal immigrants. This is on top of insanely huge welfare benefits, and preferential treatment in things like college tuition and, incredibly, accountability for their often violent criminal acts.

Beyond our non-existent borders, Obama has made things even worse. His meddling in the Middle East, in support of Islamic jihad, has created disaster after disaster for the dwindling number of secular, relatively civilized countries there. Driven by his egomaniacal, narcissistic belief that he is brilliant and infallible, Obama and his lackeys – Clinton (and her “special” assistant Huma Abedin) and Kerry and the leftist-dominated State Department, Muslim convert Brennan at the CIA, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, etc., etc., ad nauseam – have tried to install their Muslim Brotherhood allies in power, but instead, due to what is clearly a near total lack of understanding of Middle East politics, culture, and ironically, religion, have created chaos that borders on anarchy.

Their bungling is so bad that Obama’s self-proclaimed success against terrorists in Yemen resulted in jihadis overthrowing the government there. This in turn resulted in Saudi Arabia, a country that has almost always relied on surrogates to act militarily on its behalf, joining with other Arab states to form an Arab Army that will likely include Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. Shiite and Sunni hatred for one another is almost as intense as Islam’s hatred of infidels – Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, and everyone else who is not Muslim. This has exacerbated the situation in the Middle East and has been, it seems, totally misread by the Muslim in the White Mosque and his cronies.

Terrorist-sponsoring Shiite Iran is being allowed to continue to develop its nuclear weapons, much to the dismay of Sunni Saudi Arabia. Sunni Saudi Arabia, who has financed terrorism on a huge scale (including, many believe 9/11 and Obama’s education and political career) now

wants nukes of their own. The Middle East, thanks to the “brilliance” and utter incompetence of Obama trying to play both ends against the middle is about to be the starting place of World War III.

This, of course, all ignores the state of the world economy and the fact that the dollar is in big trouble, as is, in spite of the lies of the Obama administration and their stooges in the media, the American economy. The mess, once again, is due to the total lack of understanding of economics by knee-jerk Marxist Obama and his knee-jerk Marxists associates. Collapse, sooner rather than later, is a real possibility.

Meanwhile, the Republicans, almost without exception, are doing nothing – repeat, nothing – to stop or even slow down our descent into a New Dark Age. Congress has over the past 30 years degenerated into a corrupt, toothless paper tiger, interested only in enriching its members at the expense of We, the People, and maintaining its position of power and privilege. There is hardly a member who is not in serious violation of their oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. Instead of actually dealing with the destruction of the separation of powers and the lawlessness of the Obama regime, Congress – and again, abetted by the “mainstream” media – is nearly 100 percent absorbed in an election that won’t happen for a year-and-a-half. In the meantime, the country and the world are going to hell, and We, the People, it seems, can only stand on the sidelines and watch, while the Obama’s loot the treasury to indulge themselves in multi-million dollar “vacations” and golf outings, rewarding themselves for the superlative job they are doing.
