…fellate themselves over retarded fucking stories like this utter fucking nonsense, the people of this country are missing out on a story of enormous importance. Specifically, Trump’s trip to the Middle East.
NOTE: I want to state very clearly that I am adamantly against the enormous arms deal we have made with Saudi Arabia. This deal was started under the Obama Administration and was completed under the Trump Administration. Elements of the Saudi Arabian government funded the 9/11 attackers. They fund terrorism in the Middle East and the SA government wields enormous influence over our own politicians. However, Saudi Arabia is also changing and their government is not a monolith. Mohammed Bin Salman, the deputy crown prince of the kingdom is doing amazing work in transforming both their economy and their society. He is investing petroleum profits into technology and education in an effort to modernize the Saudi economy into one that is not dependent on oil and one that is far more Western in function. He has a far more liberal (that’s a lower case “L”) view of the role of women in Saudi Arabian society. What he is attempting is enormously ambitious and he may fail. But Salman is a shining example of what Saudi Arabia and even the Middle East as a whole could become some day.
-Meliania, Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner travelled with Trump.
-Meliania and Ivanka were welcomed despite refusing to wear a headscarf. The Saudi press has been fawning over her.
-Jared Kushner is an Orthodox Jew (as is his wife, Ivanka) and was welcomed in Saudi Arabia. The importance of this can’t be overstated.
-Listen to what foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir had to say about Trump’s visit.
-Trump’s trip involved flying directly from the capital of the land where Islam first emerged to the capital of the Jewish state. This was not unplanned and it makes a powerful statement to the region.
-He said some things that Muslims needed to hear from the President of the United States. Things that would never be uttered from the mouth of a callow sycophant (Obama), or from a tone deaf son of a NWO lieutenant (Bush). He offered an open hand of friendship and cooperation, but on the condition that Muslims lead the way in preaching and practicing tolerance and eliminating preachers of hate in mosques and Muslim schools. This message is particularly important for the Saudis since they finance thousands of mosques in the United States and Europe.
“There can be no coexistence with this violence,” President Trump told his royal audience in Riyadh. “There can be not tolerating it. No accepting it. No excusing it and no ignoring it. They don’t worship God. They worship death. This is a battle between good and evil.”
President Trump said that in Riyadh. Looking at the face of the King of Saudi Arabia while he said it. Think about that. We have a President who was willing to say these words in the belly of the beast.
Trump’s trip to the Middle East of course has been met with nothing but abject criticism from the Fake News Media. A message to the propagandists in the FNM and the foolish people that believe their words: This country is leaving you behind. There’s serious, profound work to be done in the wake of two disastrous Presidencies. There’s no room for your stupidity and foolishness in the new world we’re trying to build.
And besides, I’m too happy about the President’s trip to care.
