We've come a long way, baby! Have we not? How does that beautiful expression of God's Hand in our personal existence and national behavior match up with all that we've seen and endured from current national leadership, from Congress, to the Supreme Court or the President, or for that matter, the behavior of their constituents? It is doubtful that the protest crowds making “their voices heard” while abusing the freedom and safety of others have ever taken a single one of those sentiments to heart.Here he somehow manages to condemn the European Union, Muslim immigrants and labels the EU as socialist (whatever he means by that).
An unnerving report shows that the EU is attempting to rush ahead with the formulation of a European Army before Britain can legally pull the plug on EU membership (which is not due to begin until the end of March 2017) and thereby force the UK to fund the project to the tune of nearly a billion dollars. But it's not the last of the punishments intended to be heaped upon the British for being so “bigoted and hateful” as to reject Europe's socialist Utopia in a sea of Muslim immigrants. No, Europe's leaders intend to make sure that Britain pays dearly in a myriad of ways for rejecting the great wisdom of Angela Merkel and the entire EU bureaucracy.He then talks about problems in the Middle East. Even though under President Obama the US government supplied 20% of the State of Israel's military expenditure as foreign aid and recently made a memorandum of understanding that increases this to 25% Mark Armstrong hysterically insists that the US government had virtually abandoned the State of Israel.
The Middle East has been treated as crucial to western interests for primarily two reasons, Israel and oil. In recent years Israel, has suffered a virtual abandonment from its most historically generous benefactor, the United States. That may be about to change under the incoming U. S. administration, but the situation, particularly regarding Iran may be substantially more dangerous than before.He then praises fracking as keeping America economically afloat. There is no discussion of the various negative effects of fracking such as the social disruption accompanying it. Also it has often been speculated that fracking causes earthquakes as has recently been happening in Oklahoma. It is saddening to think that problems such as that may be expanded into east Texas now.
Surprisingly he includes a link to an article from Source Watch. Considering how far to the right he leans to politically it seems a bit unusual to see him referring to such a source.
On the subject of oil, the Middle East may be a much less critical a factor where the United States is concerned. If not for the advent of fracking technology, and huge output from North and South Dakota, we might well be in much worse economic condition. But maybe you've heard, vast oil reserves have just been discovered in west Texas that are more plentiful by far than anything ever seen before in the United States. There is weeping and gnashing of teeth among crestfallen “save the planet” activists. It looks like there might not be so much bowing and scraping at the feet of the Saudi royal family going forward.May Texas stay safe from earthquakes whatever they are caused by.
That's one more fabulous blessing for which we can be very thankful.
