Mark Armstrong Insists Media and DOJ are Conspiring Against President Trump

Mark Armstrong, leader of the Intercontinental Church of God, son of Garner Ted Armstrong, grandson of HWA, has released another weekly update (June 22, 2018). Let's see what he has to say this time.

In response to the strongly negative reaction towards the policy of separating families from their children under the pretext of deterring undocumented immigration Mark Armstrong responds by insisting that media investigations of this issue are a plot to protect the Department of Justice to continue the Mueller investigation.

He focuses on one particular photo without discussing the hundreds of actual cases in which children have actually been separated from their parents.
Greetings from Tyler, 
Hardly anything is what it seems.  The news is not only fake, real news goes unreported.  The viral cover of TIME magazine (it's not even a print magazine anymore), showing a photo-shopped image of the President looking down callously at a crying little girl was supposed to illustrate the lack of compassion toward children “ripped from the arms” of their parents at the border.  These reports are being carried all around the globe.   But the little girl in the faked picture never had been separated from her mother.
The mom had been deported in 2013 and sent home to her family in Honduras where she has a gainfully employed husband and three other children she'd left behind.  Now her little girl has become the poster child for children separated from parents, purportedly treated with brutality by border agents.  
He shows no compassion towards those families destroyed by this policy. Instead he quickly decides to feel sorry for his preferred president. He insists that the discussion about this policy is a distraction by the alleged "massive conspiracy" by the media and the Department of Justice to protect the Mueller probe as part of an alleged attempt to remove Trump from the presidency. (In which case this alleged "massive conspiracy" would have to make Pence president.)
The air-conditioned facilities, with fresh bedding, game rooms and recreational areas are probably the cleanest, most comfortable environments any of these illegal immigrants have ever known.  No one says that on the mainstream news.  They're too busy calling President Trump and all who support his agenda Nazis.  They've shed nary a tear in their fake crying while calling the detention centers “concentration camps” amid accusations of child abuse.  The news is not news at all.  It's a pre-planned diversion to get the public looking the other way, outraged by a President who doesn't possess the compassion of a normal human being.  What do you bet they've got at least two or three tear-jerkers waiting in the wings to distract the public from coming revelations that will further tarnish (if that's possible) top investigators and prosecutors? 
Mark Armstrong insists that the Department of Justice is determined to remove his preferred president. Mark Armstrong dismisses the widespread revulsion and condemnation of the mass separations as a diversion to protect the "massive conspiracy" against his preferred president (to replace him with Pence apparently).
The fact is, the emotional outbursts are a diversion from the biggest scandal in American history.  We often referred to the department of injustice over recent years in detailing one botched case after another, one tortured, impossible explanation after another throughout the Obama years.  Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, presided over the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, the Benghazi murders, IRS targeting of conservative organizations, the Clinton-Lynch tarmac stunt, Uranium One, and the State Department – Clinton Foundation fiasco for a start.  It's been obvious to anyone with eyes to see that our top law enforcement agencies were running interference for their bosses, and for themselves for years.  
He complains that people who think the Department of Justice are out to get his preferred president, (like himself perhaps?) are dismissed as conspiracy theorists by "all mainstream media outlets"
Curious observers have been vilified as “conspiracy theorists” by all mainstream media outlets for years.  “How dare you question the integrity of these fine professionals risking their lives every day to protect Americans?” is the familiar refrain, and still they haul out those hollow words.  They continue to act like “Russian collusion” by the Trump campaign is a legitimate scandal, even as evidence spills out that the whole thing was a sting operation, with agents and informants contacting satellite volunteers in the Trump orbit to plant offers of “dirt” on the hunch-back of Chappaquau.  
Mark Armstrong insists that the Department of Justice is hiding information that would clear his preferred president.
Obviously, the so-called Justice department has documents and communications that will clear all this up, but they're concealing them at all costs.  Maybe they will implicate the principals, the “fine professionals” refusing to turn over the information to Congress.  Who knows?  But they're willing to risk their reputations and careers to keep everything secret, even though we've all seen enough to reach obvious conclusions.  Some of the communications, “it's like an insurance policy...”  “No, no he won't, we'll stop it.” are smoking guns.  The context is clear, as is the intent.  Investigations that take years to play out cannot change what these “fine professionals” have done.  
Mark Armstrong insists that the Mueller investigation is not going anywhere. He even incorrectly states that no "culprits have been charged or arrested, let alone tried" even though some of the indicted individuals have already pleaded guilty like General Michael Flynn and even Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has recently been sent to jail while awaiting trial over tax evasion charges. If Mark Armstrong can get something like this wrong then is there anything else he is wrong about?
Meanwhile they've been creating our news with fraudulent “leaks” for nearly two years.  We've known enough to draw iron clad conclusions for at least six months, accurate speculations for over a year.  And still we wait, as little has happened.  None of the culprits have been charged or arrested, let alone tried.  Meanwhile the Mueller “probe” goes on, fueling the dreams of mainstream television anchors who tried to tell us Trump would be indicted, charged with crimes, impeached and run out on a rail every day for well over a year.  They were sure they had him on the run this time last year, and he'd be gone any minute.  The “investigations” have bankrupted the likes of General Flynn and others less-well known, and several of the perpetrators (who are the “investigators”) still wield the awesome powers of the Federal government to this day.
He then mentions the current political crisis in Germany.
Last week we told of the crisis in German leadership, threatening to collapse the fragile coalition of Angela Merkel's government.  You realize that the crisis stems from a rebellion on the part of the state of Bavaria over Merkel's insistence that all African and Middle Eastern “migrants” be allowed free passage into Germany or wherever in Europe they intended to land.  The latest word is that all concerned agreed to give Mrs. Merkel two weeks to come up with a “European solution” to the situation. That means she has got to find another country to accept the “migrants” and thereby appease Bavaria. 
He mentions yet another tragic incident in the ongoing refugee crisis of people trying to get through the Mediterranean Sea into Europe. He scare mongers about George Soros here ignoring the fact that there are other rich persons in America who happen to support the Republican Party.
Last week Italy was turning away ships loaded with “refugees” from Libya, refusing them entry to ports.  The vessels are thought to be owned by organizations financed by George Soros.  They were flying the Norwegian flag, and Italy contacted Norway to voice concerns.  But Norway says they're not Norwegian ships at all, and Italy is reportedly in the process of seizing the vessels.  
He scare monger that Europe has changed with the arrival of immigrants. He says Europe has been transformed with "the opening of borders" without ever stating which time period he is referring to.
No one can deny the transformation of Europe since the opening of borders.  Islamist attacks on civilians have killed 357 and maimed 1678 since 2014 according to Heritage Foundation research.  Italy is refusing ships laden with hundreds of refugees, Spain must allow a couple more boatloads to meet the quota set forth by the European Union.  
He then complaints that the media speak harshly about people like himself and his followers.
Europe has been transformed, and to a startling degree, so has the United States.  We're seeing an attempt to turn that around here at home (with questionable success), and the media is calling everyone Nazis, using some of the most vile accusations imaginable as if to instigate violence.  It turns out that communist philosophies are all cuddly and caring, and patriotism is calloused and evil.  It's beginning to look like we'll never get past the false accusations or the vile rhetoric.  
He ends this latest missive of his by taking solace in the thought that more "miracles" may soon occur to strengthen the political standing of his preferred president.
Unless, that is, there are more miracles in store.  Two years ago the idea that the media would have to invent every imaginable distraction to deflect from actual progress on many fronts, was an impossible dream.  But it's a nightmare for those that thought they'd defeated love of country conclusively.  We may be frustrated by the halting pace of truth and justice but imagine the fear and suffering of light loafered geniuses behind the scenes.  Miracles may yet be in the offing, not necessarily on our preferred schedule.  Don't forget how hopeless it looked two years ago.   
Even though alleged "miracles" have occurred and he hopes other "miracles" may soon occur he has been consistently harsh and angry in his views of those opposed to his preferred president. There is little talk of hope in Mark Armstrong's weekly missives defending his preferred president.


  1. Mark postures as if President Trump were the silver bullet for all that is wrong in the USA. Mark would be taken more seriously if he took a more balanced approach in his evaluations, as many religious leaders do, and acknowledged and critiqued the negatives of the Trump presidency as well as extoling the positives. But then again, Armstrongism has always been based on extremes. I guess that’s difficult to shed if it’s embedded in your dna.


  2. Yes, Mark has been exposed to "Fake News" all his life...

  3. I'm just so glad that me and Harley Davidson are both on the same page as far as this trade war crap is concerned. Thank God that one American corporation has a clear remembrance of Smoot-Hawley, and the guts to stand up and be counted.
