Closing Thought–15Oct19

Most Americans know that Mike Pence is the VP of the US and he is a super religious zealot……his wife Karen Pence recently made a statement that took me aback…..

Second lady Karen Pence faced fierce backlash on Twitter after she reportedly praised President Donald Trump for how he treats young women.

Pence, who is married to Vice President Mike Pence, on Wednesday told a “Women for Trump” discussion in St. Paul, Minnesota, that she liked Trump’s respect for his daughters and claimed he’d “empowered women like no other,” according to The New York Times’ White House correspondent Katie Rogers.

They reminded her of Trump’s long history of insulting women, his comments boasting of sexual assault on the now-infamous 2005 “Access Hollywood” bus ride, and the raft of sexual misconduct and assault allegations against the president.

Seriously?

Where has this woman been for the last couple of years hiding under her Bible?

All she has to do is visit a bookstore in her spare time and learn about the man she says is “good for women”…..

It’s a big day for upcoming books with explosive sexual allegations. Esquire is out with an excerpt from All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator, a book by journalists Barry Levine and Monique El-Faizy that pulls from more than 100 interviews to chart a path through Trump’s history with women—beginning as early as childhood. Esquire reports the book makes significant additions to the claims already made against him, as it contains 43 new allegations of alleged inappropriate behavior, among them “26 instances of unwanted sexual contact.” The excerpt itself focuses on “an alleged wave of unwanted touching” that occurred prior to his engagement to Melania. The excerpt opens with the now familiar tale of how he met the 28-year-old model while on a date with another woman.

But the authors dive into two other women, Maureen Gallagher and Kara Young, whom he dated while separated from second wife Marla Maples. Trump’s affection for Young was reportedly a problem for Melania, so much so that she and Trump broke up. “They got back together a few months later, but Trump apparently hadn’t abandoned those old habits,” the authors write before zeroing in on the aforementioned “unwanted touching.” Karen Johnson says she was at a Mar-a-Lago New Year’s Eve party in the early 2000s with her husband. While on her way to the bathroom prior to leaving, she claims Trump was hiding behind a tapestry, grabbed her, and pulled her in. “And he’s strong, and he just kissed me. I was so scared because of who he was … I don’t even know where it came from. I didn’t have a say in the matter.”

She needs to spend more time paying attention and less time sucking up to Trump.

Oh wait…she is not alone as batcrap crazy……our minister of justice is just as tilted…..

Attorney General William Barr on Friday faulted the “ascendancy” of secularism in America for mental illness, violence and drug abuse.

“Virtually every moral pathology has gained ground,” he said in a speech at the University of Notre Dame’s law school.

The speech revealed how deeply the top lawman in the nation is tied to his Catholicism as he lashed a recent New Jersey law requiring LGBTQ curriculum in public schools to support civil rights. He complained that laws are being “used as a battering ram to break down traditional moral values.”

Barr said that secular militants, including “so-called progressives,” are mobilized in an “organized destruction” of religion. He vowed that his Justice Department will fight for the “most cherished of all our American liberties: the freedom to live according to our faith.”

This man is a toad, a slug that belongs in jail not in charge of the nation’s law enforcement.

Then there is the State Department of Religion’s leader Pompeo……

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered an address last week to the American Association of Christian Counselors World Conference in Nashville, titled “Being a Christian Leader.” As of Monday, the top item on the State Department’s main webpage was a post promoting the address in bold type.

In his speech, Pompeo said he would “use my time today to think about what it means to be a Christian leader, a Christian leader in three areas.” They included disposition, dialogue, and decisions.

“And my focus too, to be quite candid, is not just on being a leader,” he explained. “I learned how to lead at whatever level I’m blessed with during my time at West Point and other experiences, but I want to talk today about being a Christian leader. I learned that through a very different experience, an experience with God and my own personal faith in Christ.”

Unlike the TRump-ites…I know what the Constitution says about religion and I would appreciate my reps to follow the document and leave their personal feelings at the kitchen table.

  1. As the wife of the Vice President, I wouldn’t expect her to do anything else except to ‘toe the line’.
    Of course, she may well be the power behind Pence in the first place…
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Believe in separation of church and state and that religious values should not be imposed on others by government officials. But it is quite apparent that increased secularization has lead to a breakdown of traditional moral values. Drug and alcohol addiction has also made people compromise their own decency. “You have to accept me” and “my ism is truth” has become the new moral compass. It’s not a very good one. With attack on religion we have lost one of the great common denominators that created the national ethos that united so many in so many ways.
