RELOCATING the American Embassy to Jerusalem, as President Donald Trump has pledged to do, is more than symbolic. It’s what Christians should be praying for if they value celebrating future Easter Holy Weeks, in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, located in Jerusalem’s Old City. With such a forceful gesture, the Trump Administration will be affirming, for once and for all, the undivided Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State. Continue reading
And of course, ‘Mother Theresa’s new script is rather a good one. Let’s hope she sticks to it. The Republican majority in Congress loved her speech, and they see her more as ‘one of themselves’, than they do Trump himself.

This is an unusual topic for a libertarian article. Libertarianism is in economic terms diametrically opposed to Communism. I’m not going to argue the Soviet Union was a libertarian paradise.

The Trumpets have sounded! No doubt
That the ruling class called a time out.
A breath of fresh air
We can take, if we dare,
But it isn’t yet timely to shout.

And he’ll do just fine,
If he lays them to rest in the dump.
