First hour: Washington, DC based pastor and activist Dr. Randy Short comments on the War on Religion—including the wave of apparent false flags targeting houses of worship. (See my article “Simultaneous Notre Dame/Al-Aqsa Fires: Coincidence or Conspiracy?“) Dr. Short, a true native son of Washington DC (descended from Jamestown colonists, Martha Washington, enslaved Africans, and Native Americans) also discusses some of the nuances of identity politics issues that are overlooked or censored in the mainstream.
Second hour: Journalist and TV host Ken Meyercord (also based in Washington, DC) writes:
“I attended an event at the Brookings Institution yesterday on the Mueller Report. As is sadly customary at DC think tanks, the panelists and the moderator were all of one mind. Nevertheless, one panelist, a former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia (a court notorious for rubber-stamping any charge the government brings against those who disrupt the smooth functioning of our foreign policy apparatus), made a curious analogy, arguing that the contacts Trump and his associates had with Russians would be culpable even if the contacts were with some other, less hostile country: https://youtu.be/E96084YuYyE?t=812 . His remark got me to thinking, so in the Q & A I sought to ask him “What if you substituted ‘Israel’ for ‘Russia’?” (The moderator, who apparently knows me, had to look right at me with my hand raised whenever he called on someone but never called on me). I don’t know what his response would have been; but if he said it would still apply, I would have followed up with “Has there ever been an investigation on the scale of the Mueller investigation into possible collusion with Israel?”
“The more I think about it, the more intriguing I find Mr. Rosenberg’s remark. He seemed to think the sheer number of contacts by Trump folks with Russians proved culpability. It might be interesting to compare Trump’s contacts with the Russians during the campaign with his contacts with Israelis. I suspect the latter were more numerous and of greater significance. Certainly, Trump’s acts as President would seem to indicate he’s more Netanyahu’s puppet than Putin’s: moving the embassy to Jerusalem, cutting off aid to the Palestinians, recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Imagine if Putin proposed naming a village in Russia after Trump in appreciation, as Netanyahu has proposed doing in the Golan Heights!
