I was listening to President Trump’s State of the Union address, and the following passage caught my attention as it did for many:
There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb. Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. (source, source)
Many saw this as proof that Trump is going to work to ban abortion over the next year, at least on some level, and that if he is re-elected to the presidency, that it will be a priority issue.
Now one must be against abortion, because it is a moral evil. But does one really believe that President Trump is actually going to follow through on his words, even in the slightest outside of imparting the image that he is doing something when in reality he is not?
Let’s review some simple facts.
The reason why that passage, and specifically the phrase “beautiful babies” caught my attention is because Trump has used this phrase before. He used it when in spite of his repeated, publicly tweeted, and extensively documented promises not to expand the American occupation of Syria and that President Asad is a friend of the US, he betrayed this major campaign promise by bombing Syria and said that saving “beautiful babies” who were being killed by President Asad was the reason for doing this, and then he tried to shut down his previous statements. The comparison follows below.
President Trump’s words versus his actions speak for themselves.
Indeed, there is nothing that President Asad did which has justified the US invasion and destruction of his nation.
I opposed war against Syria under Bush because it would have been immoral. I opposed the invasion of Syria under Obama because it was and remains objectively immoral. I oppose and will continue to oppose Trump’s continued occupation and expansion of US military power in Syria because it is immoral.
As I wrote in December 2016 in the following article about President Asad, a Muslim, visiting and celebrating Christmas with Christians in Syria:
Look at the photos of President Asad- is this a man who hates Christians? If so, let his deeds be his judge, and what have his deeds been other than to fight against the people who brought Muslim terrorists into Syria and to ally with the Russians in order to combat them. Not only that, but throughout that entire time, he supported the Christians as he could and now that the Christians have been able to return to Aleppo, he visits them during one of their High Holy days and even goes to a monastery.
Now look at America and specifically, President Obama and his supports and the leaders of our so-called “allies” in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the EU. Ask yourself what these people have done? Likewise, let their deeds just them- tell us, before we deposed the Christians in Syria- or forget about the Christians, take the whole nation- what did Syria look like under Asad? Enlighten us, how much “better” was life under the foreign-created “Islamic State” build by Muslim terrorists- i.e. “Syrian Rebels” or “freedom fighters”- that under Asad?
Nobody is saying that atrocities did not happen on both sides. The question is what life was like under each, and to judge them by their deeds. (source)
Trump lied to his voter base, the US, and the world. He violated a major campaign promise that has resulted in the deaths of countless innocent people and has only perpetuated the slaughter of the remaining Christians in Syria for the purpose of American geopolitical games.
Now the abortion issue has been made into a topic of public discussion, in spite of it existing for years.
Abortion is a serious moral evil. It is the murder of children. It needs to end.
But again, I ask the same question, will Trump end it? I say that no, he will not, because abortion is centrally connected to the military-industrial complex.
Make no mistake, Shoebat.com has written major articles exposing the entire connection between the abortion industry and its connection to Silicon Valley and the development of military weapons, specifically advanced robotics and artificial intelligence systems. While David Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood trafficking in baby body parts, Shoebat.com exposed where at least some of these parts were going and what they were being used for, something which nobody else has done or seriously attempted to do.
The abortion industry is essentially the “procurement” phase of a long chain of modern human harvesting, processing, and experimentation no different than the agricultural “farm to table” process. It is funded by the government and the companies who fund and build the equipment to run said governments in the Western world.
Trump is not going to stop this at all. What he is going to do is to do what he did before, which is to say what he needs to say to get elected, and he is going to have the Democrats help him. This is proven by the fact that in spite of this being 2019, the Democrats have yet to put forward an actual contender for the presidency, let alone somebody that people have actually heard of, who doesn’t have a “foreign sounding” name, and who does not have a history of making public statements that the average American would consider insane or intolerable.
The Democrat party is not in “disarray,” and they are not confused either. They are acting their role in the great soap opera that is the American political drama. The only difference between it and one of the many ridiculous Mexican telenovelas is that telenovelas are fake and nobody believes them, but people actually believe the American political soap opera.
Now this is not to say that politicians cannot be given a “chance.” Indeed, it is prudent to do this, especially in “exceptional” circumstances, as men are not bound strictly by the will of others, but do have choice and can choose to do good outside of what would normally be expected.
But Trump has had his chance. He has had three years to show himself to be “different,” and he has not. If anything, he has distinguished himself by his extraordinary submission to certain foreign lobbyists, not so much as “making America great again,” but making the military-industrial complex great again and at taxpayer subsidy.
Let’s also remember too that not only is Trump a serial adulterer, but he has been accused of paying for the murders of at least eight children who were brought into existence by his willful philandering:
There are rumors, too, of Trump mistresses paid to have abortions and kept quiet with non-disclosure agreements. One source tells Cockburn that there could be as many as eight such women. (Cockburn should point out that Trump has been the subject of rumors about secret abortions for years, and has admitted no such thing.) But this is more than merely sad and sordid: if any such payments were made while Trump was running for President, there could be new campaign finance violations, all felony offenses. Cohen was said to have handled all this. Cohen was also a vice-president of the Trump Organization and knows about how the secretive family business was conducted. This matters because state prosecutors in New York are now said to be looking again at how condos in Trump buildings were sold – not by Trump, but by his older children, Don Junior, Eric and Ivanka. (source, source)
By contrast, while it seems unlikely that Broidy would pay $1.6 million to hush up Bechard, it is eminently understandable that Trump would do so — or, more accurately, find someone else to. After all, by the time Bechard demanded payment for her silence Trump was already president. And, if anything could shake Trump’s crucial core support among Evangelical Christians, a brand-new affair (many of those supporters forgive Trump’s many previous sins on the grounds that he is now a “baby Christian”) with a Playboy playmate, who then aborted what these supporters would consider Trump’s unborn child, might produce that outcome. (source, source)
So here is a President who is a serial liar who has betrayed numerous campaign promises, including the situation in Syria and increasingly, his promises to “build the wall.” He has a history of confirmed philandering, and there is good reason that suggests he has paid to have multiple children murdered.
Now even after this history, one believes that he is going to save “beautiful babies?”
If anything, that phrase- “beautiful babies” -given its use in the context of the invasion of Syria, it is a sign that he is not just trolling, but laughing at his very base. The people will look at his statements and use them to rally support to vote for him, which he will likely win the 2020 election, and once he gets power, he will do nothing. Even worse, I would not even be surprised if he either expanded or allowed for the expansion of abortion during his term, which he will then blame on “the Democrats,” who in having thrown the 2020 election will likely ensure for themselves a victory in 2024.
In other words, it is 2003 all over again with the Bush II vs. John Kerry election, and so few people see it.
My genuine desire is the best for all people. However, I refuse to give even a semblance of a false hope or promise.
Don’t be surprised if Trump’s words are shown to be lies, and don’t say I didn’t warn you.
