Debt, Charity or Population Control? Trump Designates $55 Million to USAID to “Help” Iraqi Christians


Debt, Charity or Population Control? Trump Designates $55 Million to USAID to “Help” Iraqi Christians

By Julio Severo
The Christian press is hailing efforts of U.S. President Donald Trump to help Christians in Iraq.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) said last week that $55 million of a $75 million tranche of aid money to the U.N. Development Program’s Funding Facility for Stabilization will go to addressing minority groups in areas of northern Iraq retaken from the Islamic State (ISIS).
FoxNews reported, “USAID payment already forwarded to the UNDP fund is to be especially aimed at ‘those who have been victims of atrocities by ISIS.’”
According to USAID’s press release: “The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have agreed to increase assistance to Iraqis, particularly religious and ethnic minorities, to enable them to return to their homes in areas liberated from ISIS.”
Yet, there are concerns.
“UNDP has been grossly mismanaged, is not transparent, and has deliberately marginalized the genocide that targeted Christian and Yazidi minorities for over the past two years,” observes Nina Shea, head of the Center for Religious Freedom at the Hudson Institute, and a strong critic of the U.N.’s behavior toward the minority refugees.
“What concerns me is that the bulk of the [Trump] money now for the Christians, the vast majority of it, is going to go through the UN,” Shea said.
“I have no confidence in the UNDP,” said she.
Shea is right about UNDP. According to Facts of Life, a pro-life handbook published by Human Life International (HLI) and written by Dr. Brian Clowes, the United Nations Development Programme has partnerships with pro-abortion groups, including the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
Yet, USAID also deserves no confidence as far as population control is involved.
In a HLI article, Clowes said,
“The United States National Security Council is the highest decision-making body on foreign policy in the United States. On December 10, 1974, it promulgated a top secret document entitled National Security Study Memorandum 200, also called The Kissinger Report. Its subject was ‘Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.’ This document, published shortly after the first major international population conference in Bucharest, was the result of collaboration among the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Departments of State… Although the United States government has issued hundreds of policy papers dealing with various aspects of American national security since 1974, NSSM 200 continues to be the foundational document on population control issued by the United States government. It therefore continues to represent official United States policy on population control.”
NSSM 200, which was issued under a Republican (“conservative” and “right-wing”) administration, presents U.S. strategies to integrate population control measures (called euphemistically as “family planning”) and health and medical services. USAID was actively involved in the elaboration and implementation of NSSM 200, which mentions UNDP as included in its efforts.
What kind of “assistance” two population control agencies (USAID and UNDP) will give Iraqi Christians who survived ISIS? Health services integrated with “family planning”?
The Washington Free Beacon obtained photos of United Nations Development Program projects in Christian and Yazidi towns in northern Iraq, showing “completed” school-rehabilitation projects that amounted to a thin coat of paint on exterior walls with freshly stenciled UNICEF logos every 30 feet.
Inside the building, the rooms remained untouched and unusable, lacking running water, power, and furniture.
Usually, the only thing not lacking in such areas in dire need is population control. Even though there is a lack of everything necessary, there is an abundance of contraceptives, condoms, IUDS, etc.
Do Christians deserve it?
Iraqi Christians
From the U.S. government, Iraqi Christians deserve reparations. In 2016, Republican presidential candidate Trump accused U.S. President Barack Obama of founding the Islamic State terror group.
This is a very serious accusation. If Trump was right, the U.S. government under Obama committed crimes against vulnerable Christians by training, funding and arming ISIS, which raped, tortured and slaughtered Christians.
Iraqi Christians deserve much more than population control “assistance.” They deserve due reparations, including weapons to defend themselves. If the U.S. government under Obama could give arms to ISIS and other Islamic groups to attack Christians, why cannot the U.S. government under Trump give arms to Christians to defend themselves?
On behalf of the U.S. government, Trump owes an official apology to Iraqi Christians and all the victims of ISIS created by Obama. This apology is long overdue.
Population control is not assistance. It is to finish the extermination job ISIS began.
Pro-life leaders should contact Trump and ask a full review of USAID and its “assistance.”
Also, the Trump administration should open America’s doors for Iraqi Christians who survived ISIS. After all, they were victims of an Islamic terror group created by an American president. To welcome them as refugees is much more than charity. It is due reparation.
The U.S. economy has increased under Trump. Why not use a good part of these profits ($7 billion would be a good start) to help ISIS’s victims?

Using Trump As a Platform to Glorify The Inquisition?


Using Trump As a Platform to Glorify The Inquisition?

Trump Is So Demonized As The Inquisition, Says Brazilian Catholic Right-Winger

By Julio Severo
In the actual world, U.S. President Donald Trump has nothing to do with the Inquisition. But in the world of ideological fiction and religious fanaticism, everything is possible.
In his article “A Inquisição e Donald Trump: o choque de civilizações ontem e hoje” (The Inquisition and Donald Trump: The Clash of Civilizations Yesterday and Today), Brazilian Catholic author Mateus de Castro praises Trump’s efforts to protect America from Islam and uses him, as a comparison, to depict the Inquisition as a similar effort of the Catholic Church to protect Europe from Islam.
Yet, the Inquisition was not born as an effort to fight exclusively Islam. For centuries, the Catholic Church and Catholic nations already applied the Inquisition against Christians who followed Christ not according to the strict commands from the Vatican.
The Inquisition fought any idea, and people espousing them, against the Catholic monopoly. Not only Muslims, but also Jews and Protestants were targeted.
Because Islam is violent, I have no opposition to the Inquisition treating harshly Muslims. But innocent Jews and Protestants were tortured, looted and slaughtered by the Inquisition, whose mission was to destroy everything opposed to the Vatican.
Even so, Mateus de Castro makes the case that just as Trump is demonized over his stance on Islam, so is the Inquisition “demonized.” He even portrays the Inquisition as a “shield” against Islam. This is a bizarre view. By some mysterious reason, the growth of conservative feelings in Brazil is producing bizarre results among Catholics.
Even though Brazil is the largest Catholic nation in the world, the conservative push has come from evangelicals, as recognized even by The Nation. The most prominent conservative victory was acquired by the impeachment of Marxist President Dilma Rousseff in 2016. The impeachment proceedings were made possible thanks to an evangelical leader called Eduardo Cunha, who had been blacklisted by Brazilian Marxists as their number 1 enemy.
The main Marxist movement in Brazil, Rousseff’s Workers’ Party, was founded by a Catholic majority with the assistance of many Catholic bishops.
Initially, the conservative Catholic reaction in Brazil advocated pro-life ideas. But lately this reaction has become more radical and strident pro-Inquisition stances are dominating the worldview of many conservative Catholics. A simple Google search for “Inquisition” and “conservative” in Portuguese (Inquisição conservador) delivers almost 300,000 hits! These impressive numbers show that the advocacy of the Inquisition has become a very prominent subject among conservative Catholics in Brazil. There are thousands and thousands of Catholic-oriented websites and blogs in Portuguese exalting the alleged virtues of the Inquisition. A real tsunami of pro-Inquisition obsession is taking over conservative Catholics.
Radical Catholic right-wingers as Mateus de Castro are at ease to use any subject to defend and excuse the Inquisition. So if Trump is demonized for banning Islamic immigration, hey, the Inquisition is as “demonized” as Trump is!
If conservatism is attacked, hey, the Inquisition suffers the same abuse!
Castro uses as base to defend the Inquisition Henry Kamen, whom he alleges to be “the biggest expert on the Spanish Inquisition in the 20th century.”
Kamen is recognized as a revisionist, who has changed the history as it really was.
Revisionism is a tool especially used by Marxists. The most prominent revisionism focuses on the Holocaust. Typically, revisionists reduce the numbers of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust and their sufferings.
The real greatest expert on the Inquisition is the father of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He wrote “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain,” a book that largely revolves about Spanish Catholics questioning, torturing, punishing and burning Jews. His book is real history, not revision to please those who defend the Inquisition.
Castro’s article was published in the Brazilian right-wing website Senso Incomum (Uncommon Sense). It is really a very uncommon or bad sense to push for the rehabilitation of the Inquisition as an important component in conservatism. It makes no sense to put on the same level conservatism and the revisionism of the Inquisition. It makes no sense for a right-wing website as Senso Incomum to put Trump and the Inquisition on the same level. But such bad sense is now trendy among Brazilian Catholic right-wingers, who are engaged in the disgraceful, anti-Christian and anticonservative mission of glorifying the Inquisition.
Castro says that America faces today the same Islamic threat Europe faced 500 years ago, and he almost said that the Inquisition is necessary today. Yet, other Catholic right-wingers have been more straightforward about the “need” of the Inquisition today. Catholic writer Theodore Shoebat has suggested that the only way to exterminate the homosexual agenda is through a Catholic “revival,” with an Inquisition that will enact the death penalty to homosexuals.
Such Catholic “revival,” with a misguided conservatism, will not leave Protestants and Jews eventually untouched. In fact, for several years Brazilian “conservative” Catholic writers have called Protestants “heretic.” “Heretics” were the main victims of the Inquisition.
A real Christian revival produces passion for Christ and repentance. In Brazil, the Catholic right-wing “revival” is producing passion for the Inquisition and no repentance. It is one of the most bizarre trends among Brazilian Catholics.
Christian conservatism and the Inquisition advocacy is a huge contradiction. Even so, Castro said as an excuse, “For this, we have to go through the thorny task of revealing that Islamic theology is based on domination, not spontaneous conversion.”
Yes, Islam is based on domination and forced conversion. But the medieval Catholicism, praised by Castro, was equally based on domination and forced conversion. Or you were Catholic or against Catholicism. Only Catholics were protected. Jews and non-Catholic Christians were in everlasting danger of falling prey to the Inquisition.
Just as in the case of abortion, when conservatives consider the plight of victims; just as in the case of communism, when conservatives consider the plight of victims, the case of the Inquisition deserves the same treatment: the Jewish and Protestant victims in their plight, not their oppressor, deserve attention and defense. To choose the Inquisition is akin to choose communist killers and baby killers (abortion physicians) instead of their victims.
To use the conservative movement as a platform to sanitize the Inquisition is a disservice to conservatism and Christianity. To say that the Inquisition has been “demonized” is to make this killing machine a victim, when the actual victims were Jews and Protestants.
To use the conservative movement as a platform to promote the revisionism of the Inquisition, as Catholic right-wingers in Brazil are doing frequently, will eventually destroy any conservative hope for Catholics in Brazil.
To use the pro-life movement as a platform to advocate the revisionism of the Inquisition, as Catholic right-wingers in Brazil are doing frequently, will eventually harm the pro-life cause among Catholics in Brazil.
To use Trump’s demonization as an example of how the Inquisition is “demonized” only shows that the Brazilian “conservative” Catholic movement is sick or even under demonic possession.
Only Christ can heal spiritual diseases and expel demons.
Only a true Christian revival can deliver Catholics from the fake Catholic “revival” that is sanitizing the Inquisition.

Abortion in Israel: Why Is There No Public Outcry from Pro-Life Christians?


Abortion in Israel: Why Is There No Public Outcry from Pro-Life Christians?

By Julio Severo
Israel, a nation that receives strong support from evangelical Christians around the world because of God’s promises to the Jewish people and their Promised Land, boasts of having one of most liberal abortion laws in the world, but such sacrifice of babies on the altar of Moloch and Baal barely causes a ripple among right-wingers and pro-life Christians.
Each woman in the Israeli military, the Israel Defense Forces, is given at least one “free” abortion if she wants one. “Free” for the woman, but not for the tax-payer.
Furthermore, while all Israeli women who want a “free,” publicly funded abortion must go before a government panel before having an abortion, the Israeli newspaper Times of Israel reports 98 percent of abortions are approved.
In 2012, Israel legally performed 20,063 “free” abortions — approximately 10% of all known pregnancies in Israel — at the expense of tax-payers. These numbers do not include non-recorded abortions performed in private offices without government funding.
So it is no surprise that in 2014 The Times of Israel run the headline “Israel’s abortion law now among world’s most liberal.”
Israel’s liberal abortion laws have been approved under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is the leader of the most right-wing coalition government in Israel’s history.
The Israeli Right is not as worried about abortion — and for that matter, the homosexual agenda — as the American Right has been.
The Netanyahu government has also been an advocate of the global warming ideology, even criticizing the Trump administration for rejecting it, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Even though Netanyahu is known among American conservatives as a Jewish leader who encourages people to read the Bible and fiercely fights for the Promised Land — and he has my full support on these positions —, his anticonservative stances are less known, including his support for the homosexual agenda.
So Israel under Netanyahu has been no better than the most rebel Israeli governments in the Old Testament.
Writing in the progressive website “Patheos,” Catholic author Mark Shea raised an interesting point in his 2014 article titled “The Zealously Pro-Abort Politician ‘Prolife’ Christian Conservatives Staunchly Support.” He said,
“The Dems may have soured on Obama, but there is still one ardently pro-abortion politician that Americans love and support without question. Curiously, he is, if anything more intensely and unquestioningly supported by ‘prolife’ conservative Christians than by the left. Indeed, for many ‘prolife’ Christian conservatives, to question this zealously pro-abortion politician is like questioning the will of God himself. His name: Benjamin Netanyahu, whose administration enacted some of the most fanatically pro-abortion laws on the planet. Imagine conservative prolife Christians regularly declaring ’We must stand with President Obama as never before!’ and you get something of the disconnect. Only Obama has never enacted abortion policies as radical as Israel’s under Netanyahu. And with our tax monies, we are helping to subsidize them, all while Christian conservatives have been almost entirely silent, because many of them hold to a theology of ‘Touch not God’s Anointed’ when it comes to Israel.”
For conservative Americans, Israel in the Bible and Israel as a modern state with its pro-abortion and pro-sodomy policies are morally separate. In fact, they think that they should treat modern pro-abortion Israel with the same holy attitude Israel is treated in the Bible. Because Israel is abundantly mentioned in the Bible, they are incapable of criticizing modern Israel over its abortion and sodomy advocacy.
Their inconsistency is also demonstrated by their attitude of supporting pro-sodomy and pro-abortion Netanyahu when in no way they would tolerate similar version of pro-sodomy and pro-abortion right-wing politician in America.
Yet, not only conservatives are inconsistent regarding Israel.
You would expect left-wing groups around the world to hail Israel for its liberal abortion law. After all, these groups are in the forefront of the worldwide abortion advocacy in the United States, UN, etc.
You would expect these groups to follow their particular leftist common sense: “If Israel has liberal abortion and Arab nations do not have it, so we side with Israel!”
You would expect these groups to defend pro-abortion Israel and attack the antiabortion neighboring Muslim nations of Israel. But this is not so. Even when Israel insanely embraces abortion and gay parades and other homosexual perversions (rejected by all its Muslim neighbors), these groups keep supporting anti-sodomy and anti-abortion Muslim nations and attacking pro-abortion and pro-sodomy Israel.
Why do they behave this way? Cannot they appreciate the many leftist affinities of the Jewish state with the interests of the global Left? Cannot they remember that Karl Marx was a Jew? Do not they know that Israel is the most successful socialist nation in the world?
They seem to fear that if you begin to remember the Jewish component in Marx or in the pro-abortion Israel, people will be led to prominent Jewish qualities that are superior to Marx and the pro-abortion Israel.
Moses and the Jewish Scriptures (the Christian Old Testament) are superior to any leftist trendy law in Israel.
The Jewish Jesus is infinitely superior to the Jewish Marx.
The Jewish people are engraved with eternal values (this is why we say Jewish-Christian values) and these values are above Marx and pro-abortion Israel. Lead people to think in Jewish people, and they will inevitably think in the Jewish Scriptures. So is it any wonder that leftists prefer to defend Arabs and Muslims?
The Jewish state spends millions to subsidize abortion — and subsidy is the socialist way to take your money to fund services you do not approve, including abortion. If the liberal abortion law in Israel doesn’t anger Israeli right-wingers, it should anger conservative Christians around the world and lead them to take an intelligent stance on Israel: To support Jews’ exclusive right to their Promised Land, but not their sins.
Abortion is a very serious sin and crime. In fact, the Bible says that blood-shedding defiles a nation. In the case of Israel, its liberal abortion law defiles the Promised Land. And if God’s Word is correct, the only atonement for the blood of babies killed by abortion shed on the Promised Land is by the blood of the Jews who have shed it. God said,
“You shall not pollute the land in which you live; for blood pollutes the land, and the land can have no expiation for blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.” (Numbers 35:33 The Jewish Study Bible: Second Edition. Oxford University Press. 2014)
Pro-life groups should protest taxpayer funding of abortions in Israel. There is no inconsistency between to support the Jewish right to the Promised Land and to protest the sacrifice of innocent Israeli babies. In fact, Israeli prophets, who believed the fundamental right of the Jews to their land, protested abundantly the sacrifice of babies in the worship of Baal in the old government of Israel.
Prophets’ protests are abundantly recorded in the Jewish Scriptures, which are the Christian Old Testament.
So if God’s servants denounced Israel’s sins in the past, why are God’s servants today so silent and fearful of denouncing the defilement of the Promised Land by the sins of sodomy (homosexuality) and sacrifice of babies (abortion) committed by the Jews in Israel? Or has Israel today an exclusive right to sin — a right God did not give to the old Israel?
What is the point of a Christian defending the Jews’ right to their land if they, by their sins, are losing the most important “land” — the eternal Promised Land in the Heaven?
Christians have an obligation to defend the exclusive Jewish right to the Promised Land. But they have a much bigger responsibility: to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Jews in Israel and around the world, to save them from their sins, including their adherence to abortion, sodomy, socialism, etc.
Not every Christian leader disagrees with Israel’s abortion law. In Brazil, the founder of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) is an enthusiastic supporter of Israel and abortion.
Bishop Edir Macedo is a so big supporter of Israel that he and other UCKG leaders often visit Israel. He inaugurated in São Paulo a gigantic replica of the temple of Solomon. But, at the same time, he is the most pro-abortion and cessationist neo-Pentecostal leader in Brazil.
He became pro-abortion after several years living in the United States in contact with pro-abortion Protestants. And the Israeli pro-abortion culture only hardened his stance. Ultimately, he is following Israel’s sins.
What is the point of a Christian visiting Israel — just as Macedo and UCKG leaders frequently do — without preaching the Gospel or even do as the old prophets did by denouncing the blood-shedding of innocent babies defiling the Promised Land?
Why cannot pro-Israel Christians as Macedo denounce Israel’s sins?
Israel’s sins to be denounced do not include their conflict with Palestinians usurpers, because the Promised Land is just for Jews. Palestinians, who are mostly Muslim Arabs, should seek somewhere else to live.
The pro-life stance Christians have came from the Scriptures God gave to Israel, and Christians should work to give the Scriptures back to Israel, in its essence of obedience.
God said about the old Israel, with words that are similarly relevant to the modern pro-abortion Israel:
“Their own sons and daughters they sacrificed to demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; so the land was polluted with bloodguilt. Thus they became defiled by their acts, debauched through their deeds. The LORD was angry with His people and He abhorred His inheritance.” (Psalm 106:37-40 The Jewish Study Bible: Second Edition. Oxford University Press. 2014)
According to the Jewish Scriptures, God abhors child sacrifice and He abhors even His inheritance, Israel, when His people sheds innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters.
Child sacrifice to the god Baal in the old Israel
The Jews have an exclusive right to the Promised Land. But this right does not include filling the Promised Land with innocent blood and sodomy.
Yet, U.S. conservative Christians have had toward modern Israel a sacred silence on child sacrifice and sodomy that Israeli Prophets in the past never had toward the old Israel for the same sins.
As a right-winger, Benjamin Netanyahu is right when he denounces the Inquisition and the Holocaust and their Jewish victims. He was courageous by giving Pope Francis “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain,” a book written by his own father that largely revolves about Spanish Catholics questioning, torturing, punishing and burning Jews. Pope Francis, who in his turn should give Netanyahu a book on how Jews are cowardly aborting their babies in Israel, has never done it.
Famous evangelical leaders who visit Israel and meet Netanyahu have had the same “courage” as the pope: They have never given Netanyahu any book showing how Israel is sinning against God by killing its own babies and celebrating sodomy.
Netanyahu gave a very beautiful example by giving a book on the crimes of the Inquisition. Now who will give him a book on the crimes of abortion?
The abortion holocaust needs to be exposed. When U.S. Christian leaders shut their eyes to abortion in Israel under Netanyahu, they are not behaving prophetically. They are behaving cowardly.
Above all, Christians should remember that the earthly Promised Land is not the ultimate destiny of the Jews. So they have the urgent mission to prepare the Jews for the heavenly Promised Land. And the only way to prepare them is by preaching the Gospel.
Without spiritual conversion, earthly Jews will keep filling the Promised Land with the blood of aborted babies and the abominable stains of sodomy. With such sins, they have no right to enter the heavenly Promised Land.
They need to know the Jewish Jesus, who is against the Inquisition and abortion and gives abundant life. Who will introduce Him to them?

“Fire and Fury”: When Garbage Becomes Bestseller


“Fire and Fury”: When Garbage Becomes Bestseller

By Julio Severo
Small country towns are notorious for gossip. If you want to escape slanders, flee country towns and live in a big city.
This advice is worthless for U.S. President Donald Trump. He lives in a big city — in fact, the most powerful city in the world —, but he is unable to escape gossips and slanders.
The latest attack came from Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which has become bestseller. In fact, before its release on January 5, the book and e-book reached number one both on Amazon.com and the Apple iBooks Store.
“Fire and Fury,” according to Voice of America, a news source of the U.S. government, “It is now the top-selling book on Amazon.com. In Washington, D.C., people waited outside bookstores in extremely cold weather to buy the book.”
CBS News run the headline: “Explosive ‘Fire and Fury’ book tops best-seller lists, flies off bookstore shelves.”
I have read some pages of “Fire and Fury” and its essence, substance and soul is gossip. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines gossip as “information about the behavior and personal lives of other people.”
How gossip against Trump became bestseller in the United States?
What does the Bible say about gossip?
“Never gossip. Never endanger your neighbor’s life. I am the LORD.” (Leviticus 19:16 GWV)
“Whoever goes around as a gossip tells secrets. Do not associate with a person whose mouth is always open.” (Proverbs 20:19 GWV)
Some could ask: “Yet, has not Trump ‘gossiped’ against Bush over the Iraq War?” Actually, during his campaign, Trump said that the Bush administration lied about his reasons to invade Iraq. Trump said that he opposed such invasion. Christians in Iraq took a very heavy toll for Bush’s bad decision. The Iraqi Christian community, which was over 2 million before the U.S. invasion, is now less than 400,000.
Excluding the Iraq fiasco and other disasters of his neocon foreign policy, Bush was unfairly slandered during his administration, with all kind of political gossip. Left-wingers did not spare him. Books were also written against him, including “The I Hate George W. Bush Reader: Why Dubya Is Wrong About Absolutely Everything,” by Clint Willis, and “The Lies of George W. Bush: Mastering the Politics of Deception,” by David Corn.
Bush was slandered by all the left, and conservatives defended him as if he were totally correct — without recognizing his submission to neocons and their cannibalistically warmongering ideology. Same problem regarding Trump.
The same way left-wingers slandered Bush and Ronald Reagan then, now they slander Trump. I never saw a U.S. president so reviled as Reagan and Bush were — until Trump came.
But Trump did not attack Bush’s private affairs. Trump did not touch Bush’s personal life. He attacked Bush’s bad decisions that resulted in the Iraq War, which was a humanitarian disaster for Christians.
Similarly, people worried about persecution of Christians can question Trump’s decisions on foreign policy that result in suffering for Christians, especially his difficulty of making America independent of Saudi Arabia, the main sponsor of anti-Christian Islamic terrorism in the world.
Trump campaigned in 2016 on a reduction of U.S. interventions in other nations, and neocons got enraged at him, because they use U.S. Republican and Democratic administrations to keep the U.S. in everlasting wars and interventions. Now the Trump administration does exactly what neocons want. To criticize his departure from an anti-neocon policy is gossip? No, just as his attitude of saying that Bush lied was not gossip.
If Michael Wolff had focused on Trump’s failure to fulfill his non-interventionist stances on foreign policy in 2016, conservative evangelicals, who were his main electoral base, could applaud Wolff’s book. But his focus was Trump’s personal affairs. It was his personal life. This is gossip.
I have found nothing helpful in “Fire and Fury.” It is garbage in page after page.
Only sick people would wait outside bookstores in extremely cold weather to buy garbage.
Only in a sick society gossip becomes bestseller.
