RE: the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, the ex-Russian
spy and his daughter in the UK.
The initial public response from the Russian president?
Something along the lines of:
"We would never be so incompetent. If we had wanted him dead, he would be
A better Ludlum-like line has never been written.
So, it's a point of professional
pride, as far as the former KGB head is concerned, that the Russian Federation
did not poison the former spy and his daughter. It wouldn't have been botched.
They would have been dead.
Like Jack the Ripper dismissing a charge of murder because it lacked his
signature surgical precision.
"I would never have been so imprecise and amateurish."
And speaking of questionable alibis, our current POTUS is apoplectic about the
Steele Dossier (you know... the 'dirty one'). Denying the verisimilitude of the
alleged 'Pee Tapes', Drumpf has declared both publicly - and privately to James Comey - that the tapes
are a total fraud because...
wait for it...
He's a germophobe.
For his defense, Drumpf did not state the boilerplate claim that he was an
up-right, up-standing, righteous family man, dedicated to his wife, blah-blah-blah...
(No one ever accused him of those scurrilous charges, that's for certain.)
No, his offered rationale for discrediting the Steele Dossier and the
co-mingled'Pee Tapes' is that he is too
much of a neurotic to pay for 'Golden Showers'.
Ladies and Germs, the President of
the United Snakes...
And the 'Evangelicals' have no
problem with this because...?
Urine is a gift from 'god'?
Drumpf's facile rationale for avoiding micturating women-of-the-night brought to
mind Drumpf's prideful, arrogant claim that he's a 'counter-puncher' who
hits back twice as hard. (Just like his mentor, the slimy fixer, Roy Cohn
taught him.) He boasts about being a counter-puncher as a way of frightening
He has also publicly stated many times that he likes nothing better
than revenge, sweet revenge.
(Well, maybe slightly less than 'Golden Showers'... allegedly...)
To the point; Drumpf gets off on getting back at people.
So, the obvious rhetorical question for his 'Evangelical' supporters is: 'Whatever
happened to the core tenet of Jesus of Nazareth's message, 'turn the other
cheek'; a fundamental precept of Christianity?
It's a rhetorical question because
the 'Evangelicals' divorced themselves from most of the Christ's ministry long
Love thy neighbor as thyself?
NIX! Let he who is without sin cast the first
Feck that! It's harder for a rich man to enter the
Kingdom of Heaven than for a camel to pass thought the eye of a needle.
Fill in your favorite douche-bag mega-church god-con. (e.g. Joel Osteen) Render unto Caesar that which is
Caesar's. But screw taxes...
If these self-styled 'Evangelicals'
can't see themselves clear toupholding
the principles of the Constitution (The First Amendment, separation of church
and state) at least they could take a decent stab at pretending to practice the
basic ideology of their publicly professed religious affiliation.
