"Pompeo clearly believes that this is all part of some divine plan"

A few days ago I was seriously asking myself whether Donald Trump was insane after he spent a weekend tweeting/lambasting a dead John McCain. Today I have confirmation that he is not the only insane one on the national security team... We are doomed!

This report from the BBC regarding American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's view of the possible divine origin of the 2016 election result as a necessary intervention to "save the Jews" is possibly the most frightening bit of commentary to come out of the Trump national security team.

Pompeo by virtue of his office has great power to do good or ill and he has clearly chosen to make decisions based not on American interests but rather on his own personal interpretation of a religious text. Further, he is promoting American interference in an election in Israel which might have led to a rejection of the extreme right wing philosophy that guides its current government.

The move yesterday to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights was part and parcel of a plan to promote Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the candidate who would be best able to secure unlimited support from Washington.

More might be coming in the form of some recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Palestinian West Bank prior to the April 9th election or even some military action against Iran.

Pompeo clearly believes that this is all part of some divine plan. Anyone who persists in thinking that nations should pursue policies that are rational and based on genuine interests should be appalled by the Pompeo comments and fearful of what the consequences might be.

"Anyone who persists in thinking that nations should pursue policies that are rational and based on genuine interests should be appalled by the Pompeo comments and fearful of what the consequences might be."

Any rational person PERIOD should be appalled. These people left in power will bring the U.S. and the world to the threshold, if not into the jaws, of extinction. Since they believe that what awaits them is infinite glory in the afterlife, they celebrate such catastrophe as a victory for God and his message. We'd be better off with IBM's Deep Blue running the country ... or a gas pump in Rachel, Nevada.

Not sure I get the gas pump allusion but the KFC logo visible from space reminded me a little of of the creator's message to the universe in "Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy", which turned out to be "We apologize for the inconvenience".

All you can do is hope these loonies don't blow up the world before our time here is done.

IJ'm sure Trump's gift to the Nutty Yahoo will be reciprocated in some way.

It's an AI gas pump. Rachel, Nevada sits right near Area 51. HERE you can read about some of the breathtaking technology being developed there.

I have to say the Deep State doppelgaenger theory sounds convincing. Sort of like Stepford Wives.

(Though you and I continue to disagree on who is the crazier of DT and HRC).

"(Though you and I continue to disagree on who is the crazier of DT and HRC)."

It's a difference that makes no difference. It's like deciding which is worse, a brain hemorrhage or pancreatic cancer. I don't and won't get caught up in presidential politics. A president is a lightning rod but not the lightning.

As to DT vs. Hillary, maybe you were referring to this article? A bullet in the head is a bullet in the head. False equivalence?

Putin did say if Clinton won it meant war with Russia.

I wasn't talking about presidential politics--anyway, that train left long ago. Just psychotic behavior.

I get it now. So many psychotics. So little time. I tried using Excel but there were so many, it crashed my computer.

Day will come when it is understood as common knowledge that these latter days we are living in were cut short by John Lennon's death. The other olive branch said to be killed in Revelations 11, is the prince SHATTERED in Daniel 11:22, who helped let everyone out of hell in Zechariah 9:11 and Revelations 9:1-2, and must never go to the Big Apple. That is the covenant that they will speak against in Daniel 11:28 and 30. It really sucks that the church is the 4th beast of Daniel 7 marching us off to some great world war.
