In America our government is run by politicians who claim that America is a Judeo Christian Nation and therefore possesses moral superiority over all other nations. This meme is used to justify anything that the President and congress want to do because everyone we want to kill are the Anti-Christ, tyrants, dictators, and murderous monsters. But if one were to mask the name “America” and list the actions we have taken for hundreds of years, one could only come to the conclusion that the actions taken have been the actions of the Anti-Christ.
"When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."~ Sinclair Lewis
All the blathering by talking heads and their politician brethren about how we must lead the world for we have the moral responsibility to free people across the world from their elected leaders and give them a more just leader is laughable. The American government has been lethal for Christians across the world, and our actions have caused a Christian genocide in the Muslim nations we have bombed the crap out of since 2000 when our government was overthrown by born again Christians.

How the Iraq War Became a War on Christians
And why supporting Syria's rebels may extinguish Christianity in its oldest environs.
The recent dedication of George W. Bush’s presidential library in Texas briefly rekindled debate about the defining event of his presidency, the Iraq War. The visceral hatred of many for the war and the man having substantially diminished, a more sober assessment of both seemed to prevail in the coverage. In the same news cycle there appeared a seemingly unrelated event, the abduction of two Orthodox bishops in Syria. In fact, the conflict in Syria and the American invasion of Iraq are linked by a common thread: the failure of the U.S. to consider the effect of its foreign policy on vulnerable religious communities, especially Middle Eastern Christians.
In March 2003, on the eve of war in Iraq, Pope John Paul II dispatched Cardinal Pio Laghi, a senior Vatican diplomat, to Washington to make a final plea to Bush not to invade. Laghi… outlined “clearly and forcefully” the Vatican’s fears of what would follow an invasion: protracted war, significant casualties, violence between ethnic and religious groups, regional destabilization, “and a new gulf between Christianity and Islam.” The warning was not heeded.
Two weeks after the Bush-Laghi meeting, on March 19, 2003, Operation Iraqi Freedom commenced. Shortly after combat operations concluded on May 1, the real conflict began. Amid the chaos and sectarian violence that followed, Iraq’s Christians suffered severe persecution. Neither the military nor the State Department took action to protect them. In October 2003, human rights expert Nina Shea noted that religious freedom and a pluralistic Iraq were not high priorities for the administration…
During this campaign of systematic violence, the U.S. military provided no protection to the already vulnerable Christian community. In some instances, the clergy went to local American military units to beg to for protection. None was given. As Shea noted two weeks later, the administration and the State Department—whose record on Christian minorities and religious freedom leaves much to be desired—still refused to “acknowledge that the Christians and other defenseless minorities are persecuted for reasons of religion…”
Rosie Malek-Yonan, an Assyrian Christian who testified before Congress, would call the Bush administration a “silent accomplice” to “incipient genocide.” Anglican Canon Andrew White of Baghdad’s Ecumenical Congregation captured the reality with blunt precision: “All of my leadership were taken and killed—all dead.”
Those Iraqi Christians who fled to America would fare little better in seeking asylum. Many Chaldeans and Assyrians were detained, until their cases were heard, in … “prisons…” Throughout these deportation proceedings, the administration and the State Department steadfastly refused to recognize the conditions—which the U.S. had helped to bring about—as “persecution.” In consequence, most were deported…
Today Iraqi Kurdistan is assimilating refugees from another neighboring country torn apart by sectarian violence: Syria. Among the refugees are more Iraqi Christians, who originally FLED TO THE RELATIVE FREEDOM AND TOLERANCE OF SYRIA, only to find themselves again fleeing persecution, often hunted by Syria’s rebels…
Many of these rebels are members or affiliates of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, BEWILDERINGLY, HAS CHOSEN TO SUPPORT SYRIA’S REBEL GROUPS WITHOUT ANY APPARENT THOUGHT OF THE CONSEQUENCES…
That’s right, for the born again Christian George W. Bush “religious freedom and a pluralistic Iraq were not high priorities for the administration.” He didn’t give a rip. Now President Trump is being advised by the same ghouls that advised Bush and Obama. They know Assad did not gas his own people, it was the rebels who have been trained in the use of chemical weapons by our Judeo Christian Pentagon. From Global Research:
Pentagon Trained Syria’s Al Qaeda “Rebels” in the Use of Chemical Weapons
The Western media refutes their own lies
Not only do they confirm that the Pentagon has been training the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons, they also acknowledge the existence of a not so secret “US-backed plan to launch a chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime.”
London’s Daily Mail in a 2013 article confirmed the existence of an Anglo-American project endorsed by the White House (WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF QATAR) to wage a chemical weapons attack on Syria and place the blame on Bashar Al Assad.
(Update; April 8, 2017) Trump’s decision to strike a Syrian airbase in retaliation for Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people confirms that the “False Flag” Chemical Weapons attack scenario first formulated under Obama is still “on the table”. Our analysis (including a large body of Global Research investigative reports) confirms unequivocally that Trump is lying, the Western media is lying and most of America’s allies are also lying.
The following Mail Online article was published and subsequently removed. Note the contradictory discourse: “Obama issued warning to Syrian president Bashar al Assad”, “White House gave green light to chemical weapons attack”.
In a twisted logic, the Pentagon’s mandate was to ensure that the rebels aligned with Al Qaeda would not acquire or use WMD, by actually training them in the use of chemical weapons…
“The training [in chemical weapons], which is taking place in Jordan and Turkey, involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials, according to the sources. Some of the contractors are on the ground in Syria working with the rebels to monitor some of the sites, according to one of the officials.
The nationality of the trainers was not disclosed, though the officials cautioned against assuming all are American. (CNN, December 09, 2012, emphasis added)
President Trump is following in the same bloody footprints as Bush and Obama before him. One must conclude that the outcomes will be the same for Christians. Some of the biggest cheerleaders for the illegal, criminal bombing of Syria have been American Christian leaders. From The Free Thought Project:
Trump Airstrike Paved the Way for ISIS to Attack Christian Town Protected by Syrian Army
When George W. Bush attacked Iraq and the Saddam Hussein regime, millions of Americans rejoiced as the president took unilateral measures to overthrow the evil dictator’s powerful hold over the country. Bush was successful with his stated goal, regime change, but for Iraqi Christians, life would never be the same.
One 2016 publication stated the Christian population in Iraq fell by 80 percent in just a decade following the US invasion… And The New York Times questioned if this generation would see the end of Christianity in the Middle East. Oh how quickly it seems American Christians forget the toll taken on their Middle Eastern brothers and sisters when regimes change, and terrorists take over.
But that is precisely what will happen if the United States has its way with Syria, the way it did in Iraq. Yet it seems MILLIONS OF AMERICAN CHRISTIANS HAVE PLEDGED THEIR PRAYER SUPPORT FOR THE PRESIDENT’S PREEMPTIVE STRIKE ON SYRIA.
Evangelist and pastor of Harvest Church, Greg Laurie, issued the following statement.
The United States of America has struck chemical and weapons sites in Syria with Tomahawk and Cruise missiles! Pray for our leaders and military and the innocent victims of Syria! May God protect and bless the United States of America.
While no official investigation was conducted by anyone to determine whether or not it was moderate rebels, ISIS rebels, White Hats (many of whom are self-professed former rebels), the Russians, or the Syrian Army, before Donald Trump and his war machine began dropping bombs on Syrian airfields. Yet, powerful Christian leaders, such as Laurie, have swallowed the U.S. government’s narrative, hook, line, and sinker.
The blind belief in the U.S. government’s narrative belies the fact the government has lied to the American people before in an attempt to have their way with the world’s dictators… The Bush administration said Saddam had Weapons of Mass Destruction (as in nuclear weapons), but there were none…
One pastor who’s very close to Trump is Pastor Mark Burns. The South Carolina pastor of the Harvest Praise and Worship Center in Easley, is also considered by some to be Trump’s “Most Vocal Pastor.” Burns, who claims to receive bi-weekly briefings from the White House on “politics, legislation & faith,” posted a simple prayer request on his Facebook page: Praying for the Children in Syria and our US Military Forces.
If you speak to Iraqi Christians today, they’ll probably tell you they wish the Americans never dropped their first bombs in Iraq. While Saddam may have been an evil tyrant and ruled with an iron fist, the Christian church and population in Iraq never suffered the genocidal fate it now confronts.
According to at least one news source, the military base the Americans attacked with dozens of cruise missiles was the only thing standing between jihadists and the complete destruction of a Christian town in Northern Syria called Mhardeh…
Christians need to be reminded that the same thing which happened to the Iraqi Christian population will occur with the Syrian Christian population and has already taken place throughout many areas in Syria, thanks in part to U.S. sponsored “moderate” rebels…
And, if House Representative Tulsi Gabbard and Senator Rand Paul are to be believed, the U.S. is funding the extremist groups which are also attacking the Assad regime…
Standing in the way of the USA and its desire to see regime change take place in Syria, are the Russians, the Iranians, and the silent but highly effective Chinese. It sounds like the making of World War III. If American Christians really want to make a difference to keep their own country out of war, they need to call their congressmen and begin to voice opposition to any military incursion in Syria, and start to pray for the Syrian Christian Church which is on the brink of becoming extinct.
While President Trump is duped by those in his administration who were selected by Vice President Pence the media cheers. Brian Williams’ orgasmic reaction sums up the state of the Fourth Estate today.
But there are voices in the media that are trying to warn Trump that he’s being set up to take the fall. One such voice is Michael Savage:
SAVAGE WARNS ON WAR WITH RUSSIA: 'WHO GOT TO YOU, MR. PRESIDENT?'
Trump ally urged commander in chief not to attack Syria
Noting President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany 100 years ago Thursday, plunging the nation into a costly war, talk-radio host Michael Savage said history seemed to be repeating itself as President Trump considered taking military action against Syria, which is allied with Russia and Iran.
Savage’s monologue Thursday on his nationally syndicated show “The Savage Nation” was delivered hours before 59 Tomahawk missiles from Navy warships in the Mediterranean Sea were launched on an air base near Homs, Syria, in response to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s SUSPECTED use of chemical weapons.
“Do you want war with Russia, all of you idiots, all of you fools who are pounding the war drums?” Savage said Thursday afternoon.
Calling himself a “conservative peacenik,” he said Democrats “have been poking the Russian bear since Trump won the election.”
“The constant accusations of them fixing our election is not making them friendly towards us in the least. And why are they doing it? Because Trump said he could work with them?”
But Savage said it “doesn’t stop there.”
“People in Trump’s own sphere are turning him towards the beating war drums,” he told his listeners. “Dems and the establishment GOP both handcuffed loyal Trump advisers like (Attorney General) Jeff Sessions, and now (House Intelligence Committee Chairman) Devin Nunes, to take themselves out of any investigations on the Russia conspiracy. Steve Bannon, a close adviser, is asked to step down from his NSC (National Security Council) role.
“Who got to you, Mr. President? Who is whispering in your ear and could have made you make this dramatic of a change towards Russia in just three days?” he asked.
Savage said he believes it’s “the generals,” whom Trump gave “great power in his administration, and they are using it to their advantage just like in World War I.”
“Like Trump, Woodrow Wilson ran on an ‘America first’ platform. He was elected largely because he kept us out of the war in Europe,” Savage said. “But someone got to him, too.”
Savage said it was “generals who rushed world powers in World War I, and it’s happening again.”
“Their powers increase with war. They shouldn’t want war, they should want peace,” he said.
Savage recalled that when Trump was campaigning for the presidency, the candidate came on the air with him and said that, if elected, he might talk to Russian President Vladimir Putin even before he took office.
“That’s what making peace is about,” Savage said, but the Democrats “turned it into a crime and want to impeach him over it.”
“The generals have gotten to him and turned him from peace with Russia. And the people standing in the way of war, like Steve Bannon, are being shown the door.
“This beating of the war drums with Russia has to stop,” he said.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard sparked criticism a few months ago for meeting with Syria leader Assad and now tells Tucker Carlson why she believes Trump's airstrikes on Syria were illegal, 'counterproductive' and 'reckless' #Tucker
Fox News: Tucker Carlson Tonight
Many other outlets are calling on President Trump to fire the advisors that fed him the lies about Assad using Chemical Weapons. One such outlet is Larouche Pac:
LPAC Statement on Syria bombing: Fraud Against the President; Fraud Against the Nation
April 7, 2017 (EIRNS)—In reviewing the Syria bombing ordered by President Donald J. Trump yesterday, Lyndon and Helga LaRouche condemned it in the strongest terms possible. President Trump received a fraudulent briefing on the event itself—asserting that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for a chemical weapons attack on his own population—despite the fact that U.S. military forces on the ground in Syria knew that the chemicals came from an Al-Qaeda base, as stated by Russia and Syria.
President Trump was lied to by individuals in his national security/intelligence chain of command. The sources utilized to claim Syrian culpability for the attack are exclusively British, the same people who are coordinating the international attack on Trump’s Presidency, in an effort to destroy any positive potential for relationships with Russia and China to rebuild the U.S. and world economy. THIS WAS A VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW. TRUMP WAS SETUP. “The British set this in motion against the entire human race,” Lyndon LaRouche emphasized.
LaRouche said Trump must immediately seek out those responsible for the fraud and fire them.
It has become abundantly clear the American government, with its war mongering media and politicians IS NOT a Judeo Christian nation it is THE ANTI-CHRIST. Just as Sinclair Lewis warned Fascism has come to America; it arrived wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross. God help us.
