Too much happening to encapsulate!

 What is happening?  Everything!

    1.  Trumpism continues its strange evil spell over too many Evangelicals and Right-to-Life Catholics: "only Trump can save us."

    2.  The  Hamas October 7 surprise attack on Israel.

    3.  Trump receives indictments for his Georgia and related Election interference activities.

    4.  Trump - FOR NOW - flatters and praises Evangelicals while hurling insults at just about everybody else (and those Evangelicals not under his spell.)

   5.  Curiously, pro-Maga and Qanon people along with substantial parts of the Republican Party who  communicate with Trump and take his advice favor abandoning Ukraine.

   6.  Reportedly, Putin hangs on in the Ukraine wars in hopes that Trump will return to the Presidency and remove all USA resistance to his mass-murdering invasion of that country.

  7.  Trump promises to OBLITERATE his opposition.

  8.  Trump believes he can override this portion of the Constitution (14th Amendment) with an "Executive Order":

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Donald Trump has declared in his recent ranting speeches that if he is elected to the 47th Presidency of the United States that he will end the citizenship of  children born in the United States to undocumented aliens!

I am becoming increasingly wary of Trump for whom I once supported and voted for in two elections.  He has no compunction about lying, he has  an almost hypnotic, perhaps even demonic hold over naive Christians who think he will continue to be their friend once he has achieved his obvious dictatorial aspirations.  One thing  you should think about is the nickname he has attached to Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida of "SANCTIMONIOUS".  "Sanctimonious" is a term usually applied to people considered "churchy" or "pious".  

I am horrified at Biden's stance on abortion, same-sex marriage, trans-genderism, and the like.  However, I ask you to please remember that of "'transgender' BRUCE JENNER, now known as "Caitlyn Jenner," Trump during his first Presidential campaign said "she may use any restroom she wants in my buildings." Trump has spoken out of both sides of his mouth on these issues.  

Donald Trump pursues his political base with little regard for truth.  One of his top advisors, self-proclaimed "Dirty Trickster" Roger Stone is courting the New Apostolic Reformation crowd, including Elijah List with prolamations that he is now a born again Christian attending Coral Gables Presbyterian Church and that he and Donald Trump often "pray together."  I believe given his reputation and the obvious tactics employed that what he and Trump are really up to is "PREYING TOGETHER."  

If Trump returns, I pray I am wrong, but I strongly suspect I am not.
