Mandeville, LA – President Trump took to his pulpit last night and delivered a speech justifying the ordering of attacks upon the sovereign country of Syria. In his remarks, Trump sounded more pious than his holiness Saint Pope Pius V ever did in defending Europe from Muslim attacks at Malta and with the Holy League fleet. Trump had the audacity to ask the Russians this.
To Iran and to Russia, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children? The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep.
No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants and murderous dictators. In 2013, President Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons. Assad’s recent attack and today’s response are the direct result of Russia’s failure to keep that promise.
Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace. Hopefully, someday we’ll get along with Russia and maybe even Iran, but maybe not. – [emphasis mine – MC]
Really now!? Currently there are hundreds of thousands of children, women and adults who have actually suffered and died as a direct result of the United State’s direct, cash, military and intelligence support of Saudi Arabia and their war crimes against the civilian population of Yemen. There is a cholera epidemic in Yemen brought on by the Saudi’s U.S. backed war that is one of the largest cholera events in world history.
Yemen, a country ravaged by war and on the brink of famine, is now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world, according to international health authorities.
The outbreak has surpassed 200,000 cases, and that number is growing by 5,000 a day, they say.
“In just two months, cholera has spread to almost every (part) of this war-torn country,” said World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan and UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake in a joint statement.
More than 1,300 people have already died — one quarter of them children — and the death toll is expected to rise.
Why isn’t our “humanitarian” president acting swiftly to bomb the U.S. mint that produces the cash given to the Saudis or “targeting” to be “crushed” the facilities producing the bombs used in bombing Yemeni civilians by Trump pal, the Prince of Saudi Arabia? -[emphasis mine-Ed. MC]
Didn’t President Trump say that it was the suffering of children that forced his hand on Friday night’s attack? Lest you think the United States under trump are but innocent bystanders guilty of nothing more than poorly choosing friends (the Saudis). The U.S. Senate voted to end our direct participation in this holocaust.
WHITHER THE CONSTITUTION?
80 Members of Congress warned Trump last night that any use of the American military to strike Syria required action by Congress. The members also informed the President that he could not use the War Powers Act as justification for the strike either. Rep. Justin Amash explains.
You’re going to hear and read the false, tired assertion that the War Powers Resolution (or Act) allows the president to take offensive military action without congressional approval for 60-90 days. Here’s why that’s not true:

Congress is invested with the sole and exclusive power of declaring wars. No president can of his own Constitutional power, summon the mighty military of The United States and begin a war, yet it has just happened, again. The White House is now crawling with the war-monger vermin that propagandized our way into the never-ending Iraq War of 2003 and the perpetual war in Afghanistan. The fact that President trump has taken their advice on a war he declared in 2013 was a “waste of time” shows that the neoCONS have claimed yet another soul to continue their diabolical campaign to rid the world of the Christian faith. Like it or not, the President commits these war atrocities in the name of These United States of America meaning we are all indirect accessories and a Just God will not let this pass without holding us all to account. This is why prayer and immediate reparations for these acts must be made by all the faithful.
But there is one foe the neoCONS will never best and will never cease, with our prayerful assistance, crushing the head of that serpent. As Saint Pius V wrote at the time of the Battle of LePanto.
“And so Dominic looked to that simple way of praying and beseeching God, accessible to all and wholly pious, which is called the Rosary, or Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary… Following the example of our predecessors, seeing that the Church militant, which God has placed in our hands, in these our times is tossed this way and that by so many heresies, and is grievously troubled and afflicted by so many wars, and by the deprave morals of men, we also raise our eyes, weeping but full of hope, unto that same mountain, whence every aid comes forth, and we encourage and admonish each member of Christ’s faithful to do likewise in the Lord.” – Consueverunt Romani, His Holiness, Pius V, Given at Rome at St. Peter’s, under the Fisherman’s ring, 17 September 1569, in the fourth year of our Pontificate.
To arms Gentlemen, & CRUSADER Knights of the most Holy Rosary; it is truly the last, best hope for peace.
