Weekly Update from Headquarters
17 January 2020
Greetings from Tyler,
Instead of firing missiles,
Iran's weird holy man has taken to lobbing insults.
murderous regime, responsible for creating and funding mayhem all over the
Middle East and elsewhere,
after gunning down hundreds if not thousands of ticked Iranian citizens, is
calling us names. That's rich. But that's the BIG news. The
Supreme Leader fights back! Verbally. Guess they showed us.
It turns out the reports of no injuries in their missile
attacks on U. S. installations in Iraq may have
Now we're hearing of concussion injuries that weren't immediately apparent, and
we hope none are serious. For everyone's sake, it's a good thing those
attacks didn't kill any Americans. Otherwise,
we might all be in a completely different situation.
We couldn't have imagined that taking out one of the
world's bloodthirstiest terrorists would be construed by the mainstream as a big
disaster, possibly igniting World War III.
mainstream and the entrenched bureaucracy wrung its hands over the prospects of
massive retaliation and a war that would envelop not only the Middle East, but
all of human civilization. They were wrong.
The people of Iran have taken to the streets in numbers
never seen before, in support of freedom, something no one under the age of 40
over there has ever known.
One of the foremost proponents of impeachment, and one of the
reliable Trump accusers on network TV (David
Gergen), has actually gone to worrying aloud over the prospect that
the Islamic regime in Iran might collapse. That would be his, and all the
bobbing heads' worst nightmare. There would be no stopping the incumbent
President if that were to happen, he said.
Unless of course, their impeachment charade turns out to be
successful, and they could realize their nightly dream of removing him from
office. The troupe
of impeachment managers ceremoniously brought their articles of impeachment to
the Senate two by two, taking little half steps as they shuffled down the aisle.
It looked like a funeral without the casket.
If any justice remains to be had, it will be their own. But if you
consume the mainstream media, you see what we've seen for three years now.
They think they've almost
got him. Any minute now the bombshell they've promised every day for what
seems like a lifetime will chase him from public view, and they can get back on
the track of the previous eight years. Smugly calling us all a bunch
of racist, bigoted homophobes and regulating our consumption of water and
production of carbon.
They could save the human race if they could just create the
enforcement mechanisms to make us comply with every detail of their socialist
Utopian dream, the Green
New Deal, and the long and growing list of words and phrases we must not utter.
And they're not shy. One billionaire candidate runs ads saying,
“We'll save the world, and
we'll do it together.” Unfortunately,
saving the world means the destruction of Western civilization and the
revocation of the freedoms with which we've been abundantly blessed.
There is a realization that is really quite stunning, yet
entirely plausible in this developing circumstance. We've all watched as
everything the President supports has become intolerable to those who hate
everything about him.
This has come to include support of Israel.
The last president treated that country like an ugly stepchild and sought to
undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu and get him defeated. With the
miraculous advent of the Trump Presidency, we've seen a total revival of the
traditional friendship and alliance that we've grown to expect over the decades.
But neither the
media nor the President's rivals can accept anything he says or does without
finding fault. We've seen them find fault with everything, including
taking out Iran's foremost plotter of terror.
They shook their heads in bewilderment when the U. S. embassy was moved to
Jerusalem, concerned that it would just make all parties in the region (save
for Israel) hate us all the more. They already want everybody
dead, so how much more could they hate us? It's hard to digest how
uninformed, or ill-informed millions of people are, but most all of big media
and the social media giants are working overtime to ensure that is the case.
If and when the would-be socialists (come
communists) ever get control again, will the U. S. still support
Israel financially and militarily? The
Bible foretells a time when armies will surround Jerusalem as a
harbinger of end-time events, and
alludes to a power in
Europe that will enslave all mankind. No doubt the media and the D. C.
swamp would prefer that situation to the one they face. That time is not
yet, and we can praise God for that.
The fire disaster in Australia is not over, but
there is word that it is raining in Sydney and points North of there. Last
week they told us that there was no rain in the forecast.
You don't suppose that our prayers and no doubt those of millions of Australians
have something to do with it? Don't stop now.
