State Department – Betrayed!

For five years I followed a vision of Rena Easton going over to a right-wing Christian militia.  I was called a “lunatic”. Today I am a ‘Prophet’. I even began my own Bond novel to delivers God’s WARNING!

    I saw it coming. I warned you. “Irony is dead at Trump’s State Department.

    In a statement on Saturday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s spokeswoman praised Ugandans for braving “an environment of intimidation and fear” to cast votes in national elections. “We are gravely concerned by harassment of and continued threats to civil society,” Morgan Ortagus added, bemoaning reports of election irregularities and violence. “We urge all parties to reject violence and to use constitutional and legal means to address complaints.”
    For most of the last 80 years, this would be a pretty standard statement consistent with America’s self-appointed role as a guardian of global democratic norms. But it’s awfully bold after the US President himself tried to steal an election he clearly lost and then incited a mob’s attack on Congress. US moral authority has been gutted — but credibility doesn’t seem to be a priority for the Pompeo team boasting about renewed American “swagger.”
    President-elect Joe Biden’s team is well aware of America’s shredded reputation overseas and plans to convince the world that “America is back” as soon as he’s sworn in on Wednesday. (Notably it was incoming national security adviser Jake Sullivan who reacted first to the detention of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, tweeting Sunday that “the Kremlin’s attacks on Mr. Navalny are not just a violation of human rights, but an affront to the Russian people who want their voices heard.” Pompeo chimed in on Twitter about four hours later.)
    But restoring American clout is not like flipping a switch: Many US partners aren’t sure Trumpism is gone for good. Shortly after winning the leadership of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party this weekend, Armin Laschet, warned, “Trust is what keeps us going and what has been broken in America. By polarizing, sowing discord and distrust, and systematically lying, a president has destroyed stability and trust.”
    In nations historically indebted to the US for the preservation or restoration of their own freedoms, leaders used to cite Washington as a guiding light. Now the US is a case study in how democracy can die.
