Greetings from Tyler,

It’s hard to imagine the kind of evil rage that would lead someone to go to a newspaper office and shoot people in cold blood.  But another mass shooting tops our news, and though many of these heinous attacks are upon targets of opportunity, this one was personal.  Five innocent people lost their lives needlessly, and some want to cast blame on the President and comments he’s made about media.

But the left is doing everything within its power to stoke anger and outrage.  Whether nationwide cable “news” broadcasters or chanting protesters, just look at their faces.  They’re not very happy people.  The faces are long on the nightly panels, and you have to wonder where all this anger will lead.  They’re out of arguments and seething with hatred.  Triggered, you might say.  And it’s going to get worse.

The news of Justice Kennedy’s resignation this week has led them to realize that their whole philosophical game plan is in deep trouble.  They figure that if another Constitutionalist is successfully appointed to the Supreme Court, they could find their supreme sacraments outlawed.  Those are of course abortion and “marriage equality,” as they like to call it.  And that means war. The organized community is doing what it does best, blocking streets and buildings demanding now that the Immigration and Customs agency be abolished today.  Tomorrow?   It’s no wonder the protesters are so unhappy.  They have nothing better to do than march with their mouths wide open, throwing their voices to the wind to show how much more virtuous they are than those who will see them on TV or in the newspapers.  They care enough to scream and cry over temporary separations of family members (who may or may not actually be family).

American citizens get separated from their children every time there’s an arrest, and no one screams in protest.  It happens every day.  If an American citizen put their children through the danger and degradation that the children of illegals have had to endure, authorities would call for Social Services. Before they arrived, where did they sleep?  What plumbed facilities did they use? When was the last time they took a shower?

This business of “civil disobedience” could get out of control as it has in the past.  If a decision limiting or outlawing abortion, or discrediting “gay” marriage should come down, what will they do then?  Six hundred were arrested on Capitol Hill yesterday.  They wear arrests like a badge of honor, for having spoken “truth to power.”  Hopefully there are mug shots they can frame and hang on the living room wall, or in their parent’s basement, whatever the case.  Funny how those that scream and cry for “the children” of illegal immigrants are the same ones who will “lay their bodies down” to protect a woman’s “right to choose.”  It’s going to get wild, and it would be interesting to know who’s organizing the community.

Not only did the Supreme Court rule that you don’t have to bake a cake for a “gay” wedding, they also ruled that unions can’t just extract dues and donate all the money as they see fit, in contravention of the wishes of the worker.  That will prove to be a big deal, and the socialists are seeing red.  They’re so upset, they’re already protesting the next nomination for the high court, even though no one yet knows who that might be.  They know it won’t be a socialist who will vote their agenda, contorting the Constitution in ways that were never foreseen, and fills them with righteous indignation.

They’re so mad they hope the economy collapses.  After a year and a half of boring everyone to tears with their breathless Russian Collusion expectations, everything looks to be falling apart. We saw the smug arrogance of their best hope for bringing down the current presidency on full display during nationally televised hearing this week. Whatever is being concealed must be fatal, because the most powerful law enforcement officials in the land have destroyed their reputations and credibility to buy a week.  Hopefully they’re not editing or redacting pertinent passages.

But the world is not standing still, just because we’re caught up in the biggest scandal in American history. You might have expected, that with North Korea at least temporarily sidelined that attention might be shifted to Iran.  It’s not just that Iran is a theocratic regime and a brutal dictatorship, it routinely sponsors terrorists outside its borders. It has military assets in Iraq and Syria, and finances terrorist organizations in Lebanon and Gaza. They’ve got a growing economic problem. Their currency has dropped 40% in value since President Trump called off the “deal.”

Our current issue of 21st Century WATCH reveals that valuable contracts with major European corporations might lead Europe to continue doing business with Iran despite U. S. sanctions. But the French have caved (what did you expect). Energy giant Total and automaker Peugeot have decided that continued access to the U. S. market is more valuable than their contracts with Iran and pulled the plug. We’ll see what happens with Airbus, which has been supplying all Iran’s passenger planes. People are taking to the streets in large numbers, sometimes overwhelming police and calling for regime change. Experts see that as unlikely, but things are liable to come to a head with Iran in the very near future.

We wouldn’t want to leave the pope out of the discussion. He’s convening another global-warming conference in his ongoing campaign to hobble Western society. You may have noticed; global warming alarm is not nearly as prominent as it was a few years ago.  It was never about the climate to begin with.  It was about control and one world governance. That’s what the pope wants, it’s what the UN wants, it’s what the EU wants and it’s what these ugly protesters want desperately. But God gave us freedom and liberty within the law. It’s why we’re witnessing one emotional meltdown after another. It’s just not fair!
