I told you so! I tried to warn you! All my friends and family – betrayed me!
Sir Ian Easton rolled over in his grave when he saw Trump betraying U.S. Intelligence from foreign soil. Who saw this coming. Well! Above is a photo of me taken before Bush got us in a war with ‘The Axis of Evil’. He was employing Reagan’s term ‘The Evil Empire’ to describe Russia. When Sarah Palin was in town, I went and saw with a light-sabre in my belt. I shouted up at her hotel window;
“I am the Evil One, not President Obama! You took my job and gave it away! I want my old job back! Give back my Evil Empire – of the White Anti-Christ!”
I had everyone around me in stitches as I waved around my Darth Vader light-sabre.
I depicted Rena as Britannia and Hellen of Troy. Admiral Easton commanded the aircraft carriers above. He was shot down and taken prisoner while flying the fighter, above. The Evil Trumpire launched a Holy Crusade with the help of KBG Putin. The End Time Evil of John Darby has won America’s Cultural War. They will take up arms to defend their covert gains. I tried to wake you up! I am transferring all my information to Britain.

At first, you know, I really wasn’t sure how I felt about the situation, but then I look at it this way: I don’t have the best past,” said Finch, who works in the kitchen at a local barbecue restaurant.
“If he — he went to the Lord and asked for forgiveness for that and hasn’t done anything like that in — since then, I believe that if the good lord’s forgiven him, as a Christian I have to forgive him also,” she said.
A Public Religion Research Institute poll released soon before the election found that the percentage of white evangelicals who thought immoral personal acts should disqualify a candidate from office fell from 64 percent in 2011 to 49 percent in 2016. In other words, Trump has changed the game. The culture wars have gotten so toxic that many evangelicals see getting “their guy” in power as more important than ensuring that “their guy” is, in fact, living up to evangelical Christian standards of sexual morality. At the same time, other, particularly younger, evangelicals are turned off by what they see as hypocrisy within their community — a division that, some evangelical leaders worry, may lead to full-on schism.
New images released by the US Navy show the astonishing sea power at Trump’s disposal amid growing tensions on the Korean peninsula.
Three enormous aircraft carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz, are pictured alongside their strike forces and a range of fighter jets as the vessels patrol the seas off the North Korean coast.
The joint drill with South Korea involves 21 vessels – including 14 from the US and seven from South Korea, with the latter equipped with the Aegis Combat System which allows them to track and guide weapons to destroy enemy targets.
The Pentagon said the drill involving three aircraft carrier strike groups in the Western Pacific would be carried out for the first time in a decade.
WASHINGTON — Just a month after he warned that President Trump may be setting the nation on the path to World War III, Sen. Bob Corker will preside Tuesday over a hearing that will examine the president’s authority to launch a nuclear strike.
The hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will mark the first time in more than four decades that the panel or its House counterpart has specifically reviewed the issue of the president’s powers to order a nuclear attack.
“This discussion is long overdue,” said Corker, the Tennessee Republican who called the hearing as chairman of the Senate committee
The hearing comes as Trump continues to trade insults with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and amid concerns by some members of Congress about the executive branch’s authority to wage war, particularly with nuclear weapons.
“The committee is clearly looking for remedies to ensure that a demented president could not unilaterally start a nuclear conflagration,” said Bruce Blair, an expert on nuclear command and control and a research scholar at the Program of Science and Global Security at Princeton University.
Da Nang, Vietnam (CNN)President Donald Trump suggested on Saturday he’s done confronting Russian President Vladimir Putin over his country’s election meddling since it’s insulting to the Russian leader. Trump said he took Putin at his word that Russia did not seek to interfere in the US presidential election last year, despite a finding from US intelligence agencies that it did. The fraught relations between the two leaders was underscored anew when Putin’s spokesman initially said election meddling did not come up when they spoke, even though Trump said it did. And he stressed that bigger issues persist between the United States and Russia that require the two leaders to move on.
On Thursday, the Washington Post revealed that throughout the late 1970s, Alabama Republican Senate frontrunner (and Christian theocrat) Roy Moore — then in his early 30s — had allegedly made sexual advances on or engaged in sexual activity with a number of teenage girls as young as 14.
Moore might be seen as just one of many powerful men affected by the wave of stories behind the #MeToo movement. His actions were lent particularly potent irony by his intense public religiosity (he’s suggested that he believes homosexuality should be a capital crime). Politicians on the left and right are calling for him to step down from the Senate race against Democrat Doug Jones.
But the way some evangelical politicians are reacting to the story — from disbelief to “well, at least he’s not a Democrat” to implying Moore’s acts aren’t that bad because, well, Mary married Joseph when she was a teenager — is significant. These reactions speak to longstanding tensions in the evangelical community over its treatment of powerful men, its forgiveness of male sexual sins, and its approach to male sexuality as a whole.
It’s important to note that these tensions aren’t new. They have, however, been brought to a head in the Trump era, which has forced many evangelical voters to contend with the idea that having a “pro-evangelical” candidate in power might mean accepting compromises when it comes to that candidate’s personal morality. Over the past few years, a number of excellent writers from or deeply familiar with the evangelical community have been covering these tensions, and have been speaking out about how and why the evangelical community seems to protect those who fall short of its moral standards. Just check out #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear for a wealth of (mostly evangelical) voices speaking out about their experience of how church communities handle sex abuse and more.
But if you want to understand how and why evangelicals are still defending Moore now, it’s vital to read these four pieces on evangelicals, dominionism, gender politics, and sexual morality, which explain how evangelicals have dealt with (almost) every alleged abuser that has preceded him.
Laura Turner, Politico: “How Long Can Evangelical Women Stay Behind Donald Trump?”
The election of Donald Trump was a watershed moment for many evangelicals. During the Bill Clinton years, any suggestion of impropriety in a politician’s personal life was seen, particularly by evangelicals, as a referendum on his character. But in the wake of Trump’s campaign, all that seemed to change.
Rena’s late husband, Sir Ian Easton, worked in Washington to insure Britain and the United States had federal funding to wage war against a common enemy. Our Congress is AWOL in this regards, they refusing to debate the War with ISIS, and legalize it. Will the Republican Co-terrorists call for a vote to defund our Commander in Chief in order to cause him to fail, and thus embarrass him in front of World Leaders whom he has formed a viable coalition with? If they do, let We the People demand that Republican Congressmen be arrested for Treason!

Admiral, K.C.B., D.S.C. Former Head of the British Defence Staff. He was Commandant of the Royal College of Defence Studies in 1976, a UK senior serving military officer between 1972 and 2001. For the 2nd Louis Vuitton Cup, which was held in Fremantle, Australia in 1987, he paid an entry fee deposit of $16.000 for Royal Thames Yacht Club’s White Crusader I and White Crusader II, representing United Kingdom.
LONDON — The British Parliament voted overwhelmingly on Friday to approve airstrikes in Iraq against the militants of the Islamic State. The vote brought a country weary of international engagements belatedly into the American-led campaign against Sunni extremists.
Prime Minister David Cameron called Parliament back from recess to consider the motion, which authorizes the government to conduct air operations over Iraq. It does not authorize the deployment of ground troops, nor does it authorize action in Syria.
In 1922 a cabinet committee under Winston Churchill, then Secretary of State for the Colonies, recommended the formation of the College. The college was founded in 1927 as the Imperial Defence College and was located at 9 Buckingham Gate until 1939. Its objective at that time was the defence of the Empire. In 1946, following the end of World War II, the college reopened at Seaford House, Belgrave Square and members of the United States forces started attending courses. It was renamed the Royal College of Defence Studies in 1970 and in 2007 the Queen and Prince Philip visited the college.

Roy Moore’s reading of the Bible has long informed the way the former chief justice of Alabama interpreted the law, and it promises to continue to do so now that he has won the Alabama Republican primary.
Moore, unlike any other Senate candidate in recent history, made his belief in the supremacy of a Christian God over the Constitution the cornerstone of his campaign.
“I want to see virtue and morality returned to our country and God is the only source of our law, liberty and government,” Moore said during Thursday’s debate with incumbent Sen. Luther Strange, who was backed by President Trump and the Republican establishment.
The central argument of Moore’s campaign, The Washington Post’s Michael Scherer reported, is that removing the sovereignty of a Christian God from the functions of government is an act of apostasy, an affront to the biblical savior as well as the Constitution. He even carries a pocket pamphlet that he published with a legal theory of God’s supremacy.
Moore’s proud touting of his religious beliefs — which he promoted long before Trump’s rise — has not always seemed like the smartest career move. Twice, Moore was suspended from his job as the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for refusing to obey laws he felt violated his religious beliefs. Twice, his gubernatorial bids have failed.
