Bluster and Blunder from Washington



I was interviewed on RT today.  Here is the video.

The US is preparing the American people for something - who knows what?

First-strike attack on North Korea?  Maybe a false flag operation to justify the US attack - that is historically our Modus Operandi.

Speak out now while we still can.  The crazies are pushing this hard.

Some years ago I heard of an organization called the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF).  They've been investigating the growing dominance of the US military by Christian fundamentalists who see the Battle of Armageddon as a good thing that would bring on the 'final days' and the return of Jesus Christ.

Newsweek reports:

    Trump Effect Inspires Radical Christians in Military

According to the report, the election of Donald Trump “has led to such a steep rise in fundamentalist Christian evangelizing and religious bigotry in the U.S. armed forces that the matter is reaching the level of a ‘national security threat.’”


More from the report on the dangerous Christian extremists currently serving in the U.S. military:

    Fundamentalist views are decidedly in the minority in the general population, but they have adherents in some of the U.S. military’s most powerful positions, especially in and around Washington, D.C., and in Colorado Springs, home of the U.S. Air Force Academy and the nation’s nuclear command center.

    The U.S. military has long been seeded with radical Christian fundamentalists—sometimes called Christian Dominionists or Christian Reconstructionists—who believe a “Warrior Jesus” has their backs while they fight against Islam. They believe they are establishing a “Kingdom of God” on earth, starting with the United States, and are predictably anti-LGBT and unfriendly to females among their ranks.


Call them Christian extremists, call them Christian fundamentalists, call them Christian Dominionists, or call them Christian Reconstructionists, the result is the same: a dangerous faction of religious extremists that act as a cancer within the U.S. military by placing their religious superstition above their duty to the nation, and their duty to the U.S. Constitution.

Bottom line: In the age of Trump, Christian extremists in the U.S. military now constitute a “national security threat.”

Luke Chapter 4 verses 5, 6, 7 and 8 tells the real story, that earthly kingdoms all belong to satan. who was at the time tempting Jesus to bow down to him.Jesus didn't refute Satan's claim. He simply refused the offer. People who say Bible this and Scripture that, maybe they ought to get acquainted with the Real Stuff.
