As it turns out Secretary of State and former head of the CIA Mike Pompeo is a Bible thumper who keeps the holy book on his desk to read the word of God and not just to show off; I believe this taints his ideological responsibility to be a responsible rational government official. Pompeo’s placement also reminds of the Dulles brothers, John Foster and Allen, who were nearly Christian fanatics and urged on longer than it should have been the Cold War to completely eradicate a Godless Communism. The Pompeo revelation coincides with the U. S. government announcing yesterday Trump wants the public schools to establish classes for student biblical learning.
Yeah, we know Trump is a good Christian, don’t we? Or is it that Donald needs and desires the Christian voter block out mid-western-way and scattered among the southern states. The only Christian leader I favor is the Catholic Pope. He’s a good man, but he sometimes missteps. The Pope is by doctrine suppose to be infallible, just like our POTUS Donald Trump. Everyone makes mistakes though, including the American voter public who voted Trump in.
Moreover, Readers, gleaned from the news and somewhat connected to the above, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman said in an interview yesterday, the U. S. and it’s allies during WWII encouraged the spread of radical Muslim Wahhabism in order to support unity within the Sunni faithful.
Wheeling religion is a powerful force in today’s supposedly rational era of satellites and cyberspace. God help us!!
All the Best to you.
PS: While closing this post I read something disturbing and thought to enclose a reply in this mail. While giving a speech in Cairo on 10 January the U. S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was quoted as saying in response to former president Obama’s legacy, “THE AGE OF SELF INFLICTED AMERICAN SHAME IS OVER.” I don’t know the feelings of the reader, regarding Pompeo’s statement. As for myself Obama had his faults, he was a little too forgiving with Wall Street mostly for the benefit of the Democratic party, (No one went to prison)but being ashamed of his eight year presidency to me is outrageous. In fact overall Obama, the gentleman president, and his Administration, performed outstandingly during several difficult financial and international periods over his term and by the way, it was scandal free.
Trump can’t depend on those who are independent, his equal or superior, but must only rely on loyal close-minded followers similar to Mr. Pompeo.

In private correspondence the other day I slammed Israel as I should have done ages ago. What was said in these emails about Zionist Israel is true and accurate. Frankly, the country is a cool calculating “loose cannon” in the Middle East and elsewhere. Zionist Israelis are smart, you may say “conning” in all of their policies both internationally and domestically, and always in the best interest of Israel.
Within the past 20 years readers, how many IDF soldiers have been lost by this prosperous land gabbing nation? You may look it up, 121, mostly in border clashes with Gaze and Lebanon. My oh my, those casualties are massive and shocking are they not? Zionists Jews are great at deceptively calculating, and instigating the U. S. to do their bidding, to go forward “go ahead” and we’ll hold your coat while at the same time reaping the benefits and conceding nothing put lip service.
I ask how many soldiers have Israel lost during the Gulf Wars, and in Afghanistan? You’ll find it to be Zero. Yet, they encourage the U. S. to always continually protect their best interest while providing the U. S. nothing in return.
Zionist Israel continues to receive 3-4 billion American taxpayer dollars each year right on time like clockwork for over five decades and with bargain prices on weaponry. With parasites allies like Israel, the U. S. does not need enemies. The days of the Cold War are long over when Israel somewhat guarded southern attack routes into the Soviet Union. It is time for Americans to wake up and change course in dealings with this self-seeking arrogant and avarice prone nation that is only interested in its selves, and to hell with the world and everyone else.
As for Donald Trump, this man has got to be the worst president the United States has ever had in spite of the good economy and best unemployment data since 1969. Aside this Trump is a grave danger to democracy, but, but don’t count him out yet. We have a long way to go before the next presidential election and the public has a short attention span. Much can be forgiven and forgotten. The Trumpet has slipped by before to the amazement of many experts. Of course there are other factors than can intercede, the Mueller investigation, impeachment success or failure, a serious international provocation, a war, a proxy war gone haywire, and those unintended never expected happenings; so I keep my MAGA baseball cap handy should president Trump get desperate and start arresting non-supporters, critics, reporters, and other enemies of the people he’ll pass me by. (A little humor there, among the serious).
The Trump White House backs the newly created opponent for Venezuela’s President Maduro. The opponent is Juan Guaido who with a great deal of nerve and gravitas has personally sworn himself in as the president of the country with the support and blessing of the U. S. President. Yes, days before the scheduled election. Guaido must have gotten a few million dollars from the CIA along with their complete backing. The U. S. has desired a regime change to get rid of Maduro in the worst way since 2015. The organization attempted to assassinate him about six months ago with a small ground attack and a drone during an outdoor speech, remember? The media, etc. blamed it on opponents in Columbia.
It is not so much Maduro is evil, but he painted himself in a corner following on the heels of former president Chavez, a natural socialist leftist who was a fool. Chavez did a great deal of good for his lower class citizens, but at the peak of oil prices with a fat treasury gave away the candy store by gifting three South American counties with billion to reduce U. S. influence and in support his ideology. Chavez thought prices and prosperity were permanent but of course he was dead wrong, then the downfall and his untimely death, leaving Venezuela in deep debt and bitter straits.
I would easily speculate if a proper election were held tomorrow Guaido would beyond a doubt win Big. The Venezuelan people have suffered greatly these past few years. The oil rich nation is truly in bad shape, with empty food and medical drug shelves bare and horrendous inflation of a thousand percent or more. Perhaps a million of its citizens have fled the country.
One can expect a great deal of violence during the campaign. As of a few days ago 13 anti-Maduro demonstrators were killed, and with the CIA’s significant contribution it may well turnout to be a repeat of the overthrow of the Iranian government in 1953 with paid street mobs rallying and riots. If a coup Maduro could well be killed similar to Chile’s Allende. In the meantime, the Army and Supreme Court have taken a hard stand and have sided with the current president. This draws a redline and exasperates conditions leading to additional violence.
The Venezuelan people have suffered, and a change is needed. Once the old regime is gone American aid dollars will begin flowing for recovery. Until then keep tuned.
All the Best to you.
