a memo simple enough for even Trump

We all know that the #BLOTUS cannot read or even begin to comprehend lengthy papers. We also know he likes photos and images in the material he is given.

Congressman Ted Lieu has sent the President a memo even  he with (his limited attention span) can understand. We are not threatened by our allies. We are threatened by our enemies.

We do not need a trade war. We need a real President who is not trying to become a banana republic dictator.

before and after (part 2)…

Here is another small illustration of the difference a year makes. The world’s confidence of our nation’s leadership and our doing the right thing just continues to plummet as the world realizes we now have a lying, egotistical clown in our highest position of power.

Who do we trust for our safety?

The Scripture tells us that our safety does not come from military power. The Old Testament is full of the prophets telling the people not to trust the weapons of war to protect them. There’s a clear message that hoping to find security through the military is a dangerous and  false hope.

The Bible tells the people of faith that “our hope is in the name of our Lord, who made both heaven and earth.”  It’s a message we desperately need to hear and to heed today.

We have the largest military budget the world has ever seen. No other country, no other 12 countries, spend as much on national defense as the United States. This is not just wrong. In a world where we have 20,000 of our human family dying daily from hunger and malnutrition, spending this amount on military defense is both abhorrent and morally repugnant.

We can end hunger in the next 15 years according to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. But we will never do it wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on wasteful, unnecessary, and sinful military spending. It’s time to trust in the Lord.
