On this, the 20:th anniversary of September 11, let us remember the cross at Calvary, the cross at Ground Zero, and the cross we all have to bear after the surrender in Afghanistan

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God” (Psalm 14:1)


The original location where the iron cross was found.

For Muslims, atheists and humanists the cross is an offense since it is to them the stench of death. But to us who believe it is the symbol of redemption and new and eternal life in Christ. If they were not pricked in their hearts when they see the cross they would not be offended.

Christ died  on the cross at Ground Zero.

We have only one risen hero.

But the fools reject grace,

stay condemned, cannot face

The truth in The Cross at Ground Zero.

 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (St. John 3:16-17)


An intermediate location for the cross


The final place for the Iron cross near the 9/11 museum.

In 2015, the guest host on OAN shared these thoughts on Aug 28, in preparation for 9/11.

These were the final words of Governor Sarah Palin after a successful week anchoring “On Point” with the One America News.

Governor Palin is a true servant. Her parents, Chuck and Sally Heath, worked at the stinky Fresh Kills landfill in Staten Island, New York in January and February 2002 as part of a federal Department of Agriculture program.

In a telephone interview, Mr. Heath said he and his wife had worked to keep sea gulls and rats from scavenging the human remains in the debris. Mr. Heath, then 70, a retired science teacher, and Mrs. Heath, then 68, a retired secretary, had worked for the Agriculture Department for 15 years. They traveled around the world dealing with “nuisance” animals like rats and bears.

“A lot of people just didn’t like the job, it was kind of a morbid thing,” he said of the work at the landfill. “But I thought it was part of history.”

This is the attitude of a servant.

After the 9/11 attack the country got together to rebuild the country again. Many quoted Isaiah 9:10 “The bricks have fallen down,
    but we will rebuild with dressed stone;
the fig trees have been felled,
    but we will replace them with cedars.”

Isaiah 9:10 has been quoted by politicians as a message of resilience and hope. This message was scribbled by President Obama in 2012 on a building near Ground Zero. Other Politicians have quoted Isaiah 9:10. John Edwards quoted it directly on the third anniversary of 9/11, not realizing that the message is not one of hope, but of utter arrogance. Today’s message by President Biden is “Build back better”, same message, one of utter arrogance. It is clear from the context:

What comes before the message that came down on Israel? Of course verse 6 and 7:

Child born: Shows the humanity of Christ

Son given, shows the deity of Christ

It also shows the unity of God, Father, Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, three aspects of God, three in one, the triune God, the Trinity.


This message brings us full circle back to Jesus Christ, the one who died at the original Ground Zero, but rose again. There will be no “build back better” unless there is a revival, a return to God, a great awakening. This present government has by its actions shown that American Exceptionalism is dead, we will do better by abandoning our citizens and allies and negotiate with terrorists who will be fully installed in Afghanistan on 9/11. We will from now on be under Global Governance.

The aim of China is to be the dominant force in the world by 2030. Recent events have made them speed up the time table by at least 5 years after successfully interfering in the last election by openly favoring Joe Biden. The greatest fear of the Chinese Government are the 300 million or so closet Christians, a number that just keeps growing. The other fastest growing churches are the Christians in Iran and Afghanistan. In Myanmar Christians are now openly persecuted and some are killed, in Pakistan many are persecuted for blasphemy. There are now more Christian martyrs than ever in history, and even our own State Department considers evangelical Christians our greatest threat, greater than Taliban.

Pray for a worldwide revival of God’s people and an even greater awakening of Biblical Proportion!

The evil of human trafficking. This includes biological warfare.

Today is the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons day.

The evil that is occurring with human trafficking cannot be overstated. Besides sexual exploitation till total destruction and death, yes, the life of a sex-slave can sometimes be as short as four to five years after initial transaction, all the time they are abused, they can be carriers of diseases, some nearly impossible to cure.

Today it struck me; it is even worse than we feared. Let me explain.

God is in the healing business. He does not want anyone to perish, but be saved. This is not only spiritually, but also physically. Through the ages, we have learnt that certain behavior is not good for you, one of which is illicit sexual encounters, it spreads diseases, some of which may be deadly. God’s idea from the beginning was, one man, one woman, one lifetime. Being humans, we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God, this includes much more than spreading sexual diseases, this was just one example.

Throughout history there has been medical nurses and doctors that wanted to cure people from disease, finding one cure after another, developing vaccines, making wonderful medical equipment to do better diagnoses, better and safer surgeries and finding more cures. And so, finding out that one has cancer is not an automatic death sentence anymore, many cancers are now completely curable.

And then there are NIH and CDC. Their goal is not primarily to cure you but to create a controllable dependency, thus creating a reliable revenue stream for he medical establishment. This sounds harsh, but watching their handling of the Covid-19 pandemic has convinced me this is their ultimate goal, not the overall welfare of the patient.

But it is getting worse, The Covid-19 virus is not a virus that occurs naturally, it is an engineered virus through genetic manipulation to make it transmissible from human to human, also known as gain of function research. U.S. used to do such research, but it was stopped in 2015 because of its inherent danger should the virus escape from the lab. Dr Fauci participated in this research and defended its use for defensive purposes to have a defense against biological warfare. In 2017, ten days before Trump took office, then president Obama lifted the ban and allowed defensive research to resume. Dr Fauci then teamed up with the Wuhan lab and gave them a grant of 3.5 million dollars via a third party. The Wuhan lab was then controlled by the Chinese Communist Military. They did the offensive biological weapons development, and U.S. developed countermeasures. What could go wrong? In 2017 Dr. Fauci even cryptically mentioned that President Trump would encounter a surprise worldwide epidemic during his term in office. Then in 2019 the unthinkable happened, and that is where we are now.

The medical establishment is run by CDC and NIH and they are in charge of our response to the Covid-19 outbreak. But medical care is a matter for each state, so there will be differences how it is approached. President Trump decided to answer the pandemic with “Operation Warpspeed” and develop a vaccine in less than 8 months. Lucky for him Fr Fauci had the response ready. In conjunction with Moderna they had a proposed vaccine ready to be tested in 2 days, thanks to the defensive research conducted already in the Wuhan lab. So NIH owns one half of the Covid-19 vaccine patent, Moderna owns the other half. Operation warpspeed guaranteed that the U.S would buy millions of doses even if the vaccine didn’t work, so it was off to the races. Pfizer had a similar vaccine under development, and Johnson and Johnson took a couple of months more to develop a more conventional vaccine. This suited the CDC well, a solution to Covid-19 and a solid revenue stream.

But there were poorer countries out there, countries that could not afford to spend billions of dollars to develop vaccines, so they resorted to old, known medications, such as Hydroxychloroquine. The result, when applied early, together with Zinc and Azithromycine had remarkable results. Their death rates were less than half that of the rich countries, even when adjusted for age and other diseases. The Front-line Doctors held a news conference touting the benefits of this treatment, and in less than a day it was seen by over 20 million people. Then it was taken off you-tube and other social media and labeled misinformation. Even Fox News Don Cavuto produced a medical doctor that claimed if you took it YOU WILL DIE! Never mind it has been given for over fifty years against Malaria, and is given for years to people with lupus, even pregnant women and nursing mothers. No, the problem with HCQ is that it is generic, so there in no money in it any more. Another medication that has proven very successful in India is Ivermectin. It can be bought at Tractor Supply as a horse cure against parasitic invasions. It was in India the Delta-variant first occured, and in areas where it has been applied such as in the Delhi area new cases are down 97% already.

It seems to me, not being a medical doctor, that the obvious solution is to approve both HCQ and Ivermectin both for prophylactic use and as an early cure, and not enforce vaccines to anyone under 45 years of age, except the vulnerable population of course. This way we can return to sanity, masks hinder child development and causes all kinds of stress for the rest of us.

What has this to do with human trafficking? This is just the point. The Wuhan lab is in full operation, developing new and more deadly viruses ready to be released when the time is right for them in their long term biological warfare plans. They already provide us with the world supply of fentanol, the smugglers of which provide a perfect delivery vehicle. No, it is not the normal people crossing the border by the millions that are the problem, even though they are often physically and sexually abused even before getting here, it is the smugglers that smuggle both drugs and humans and are not even tracked by the border agents. They are the ideal “soldiers” in the new warfare, no longer governed by conventional weapons or even guerilla warfare, but by the drug cartels in conjunction with China that are the biggest threat.

The Constitution; a most fascinating document. Is it still relevant?

Maybe not, but who am I to judge. I am not a natural born citizen, not even a native born citizen or a native citizen, just a naturalized citizen.

When me and my wife immigrated to America many years ago as resident Aliens from day one, we were told we could do everything as Americans except vote, get called to Jury duty, and we and our future children could never be elected president of our new country, being not naturally born citizens. This was well understood at that time.

I still remember my arrival at Kennedy Airport. The lines were long, but were progressing fast. When it was my turn the inspector looked at my passport and sighed, Immigrant. Then he asked for my complete papers. I had the roll with me, as instructed, and he opened it all and read the documents, including the results of my Wasserman test, all vaccinations and medical history. Then he took out my chest rays and held them up to the light. It seemed like he took a long time looking, the line after me grew longer and longer. He scribbled down something, and then turned to me, smiled broadly and said “Welcome to the United States.”
My naturalization service was held in Valley Forge, and we were 140 people from more than 75 countries, one or two from each country. The only exception was 4 adopted Chinese girls, given up for adoption so their parents could apply for permission to get another child and not be subject to forced abortion (it was not a requirement, it was only necessary if you wanted to keep your Chinese government job). It was quite stirring: A Canadian teacher, selected among the inductees spoke well about the freedom and liberty enjoyed by all U.S. Citizens. Ah well, those were the days.
It was with great interest that I watched President Obama’s inauguration in 2009. It was quite stirring to watch the sea of people wishing him well.
When it came to the swearing in ceremony Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts managed to reverse the order of a few words in the oath. The oath was taken on a Bible, once used by Abraham Lincoln, who, even though Lincoln was a Republican and Obama is a Democrat, Obama, as had Lincoln risen to great prominence from humble beginnings in Illinois. There was great symbolism there.
The fact that the word order of the oath had been reversed bothered some, so the next day the oath was repeated in the oval office, this time without a Bible.
The election had been unusual in many ways. One of them was that there was a question of John McCain’s eligibility to be president. He was born at Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone, Panama, to naval officer John S. McCain, Jr. (1911–1981) and Roberta (Wright) McCain (1912 – 2020). At that time, the Panama Canal was under U.S. control. However, the small hospital where he was born was located in the civilian part of the Canal Zone, not under US control until 1941. John McCain is therefore not a native born citizen but a native Citizen.
Is he a natural born Citizen? This question was important enough for Congress to take up and decide before the election. Being born outside of U.S. this would automatically eliminate him from natural born status. But there is an out. Every child born on U.S. soil is a native born citizen with the exception of children born to parents in diplomatic service. They retain the citizenship of their parents. Since John McCain Jr. was under the command of the Commander in Chief (FDR) he therefore qualified as diplomatic emissary, and though his wife gave birth outside US soil, the exception did apply. Being legally married is important, because
“they twain shall be one flesh?
Matt 19: 4-6 (KJV) And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

This is important because this is how marriage is legally defined. There is no better to illustrate the importance of this legal definition than in the case of Terri Schiavo. Her husband was the executor of her life, never mind that he for many years had lived with another woman and fathered two children with her. The legal document of marriage defined them as one flesh, and therefore the will of her father and siblings was of no legal consequence. It is ironic, that in this case the pro-life movement took the more liberal view of marriage that prolonged, unrepented and unreconciled adultery is a disqualifier, and the reproductive rights side held fast to the definition of marriage being one flesh so they must be treated as one unit.
After reading up on the amendments to the constitution and finding that the 27th amendment took 202 years to ratify, the next area of constitutional interest was the election of 2000. Gore won the national popular vote, and it came down to Florida, where there seemed to be a tie. The State Government, being Republican tried to certify Bush as the winner, and Gore sued, After the Florida Supreme Court, having Democrat majority had overturned the lower courts decisions which had been in favor of Bush, the U S Supreme court stepped in and declared Bush the winner by a 5 to 4 vote. The interesting point in this case is that Bush argued that Federal law took precedent, since the election is national, while Gore argued States’ rights. After all, we have the electoral system and that favors States’ rights. When it comes to matters of the Constitution it is not always the way you think it should be at first glance. Gore has come a long way from States’ Rights to Global Governance, but that is another story.
The US Senate decided in 2008 in their unanimous resolution proclaiming John McCain a “natural born citizen” of the Unites States of America, based upon the well-known fact that BOTH of his parents were indeed legal citizens of the United States at the time of John’s birth. In other words, by “divine power” and the “laws of growth,” “produced by nature” of the fact that his parents were US citizens, so was John McCain, by birth right via natural ancestry.
This ruling is remarkable, since this would automatically disqualify Obama, since his father was a British subject, Bobby_Jindal, Marco Rubio and maybe even Rick Santorum since their parents were not citizens but here as legal immigrants or on student visas visa at the time of their birth.
There was a noticeable lack of interest by the Senate to do for Obama what they had done for McCain. Yet one could argue that the Obama story is even more intriguing than McCain’s.
Let us see what we know about Obama.
The Obama team has released a Certification of birth registration on the web, not in hard copy form, that states the date of birth, the names of the parents, the address of permanent residence and the state of Hawaii.
Originally the birth hospital was Queen’s Hospital in Honolulu, but that got changed to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. They have yet to officially confirm that Obama was born there. So we have four possibilities for his birthplace
1. Queen’s Hospital, Honolulu, HI. Not Confirmed.
2. Kapiolani Medical Center, Honolulu, HI. Not Confirmed
3. Born in Hawaii, but not in a hospital.
4. Born elsewhere, but registered in Hawaii by his grandmother by virtue of his mother being a US citizen.
The long form Birth Certificate would clear up which of the four alternatives it is. It is a simple procedure to obtain a copy of the Long form Birth Certificate, but the Obama team has hitherto spent upwards of two millions prevent its release.

Then out of the blue, after Donald Trump started hounding him about the real birth certificate they produced a layered image with composites from at least three separate documents overlaid with a separate State Seal image and signature (The signature has a happy face in it just to vex you). This document would not have standing in any court since is an obvious generated document from multiple sources.
There is one more thing. We do not know if Obama’s parents were ever legally married. No marriage certificate has been produced. So we do not know if Obama’s father has legal standing. If he had, Obama would be disqualified on the ground that Obama’s father was a British subject at the time of his birth. Kenya was in the process of becoming a part of the Commonwealth rather than a Colony, so his status is unclear. In any way he was not a US Citizen, and Obama would not qualify as a Natural Born Citizen no matter where he was born. If they were never legally married it makes it easier; all we have to prove is that he was born in Hawaii. There is just one thing. Obama’s mother was not of age to claim him alone as a US Citizen at that time, so we still do not know how it would have turned out if Congress had acted to certify Obama eligible for the presidency.
All of this is moot however. No real journalist showed any interest in the case. There were WND, CNN’s Lou Dobbs and an occasional Fox news reporter that mentioned the case, but they are not “real news organizations” (Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod 10/17/2009).
Then a retired entrepreneur from Canada, J.B. Williams discovered something remarkable: Obama was never certified eligible to be president! He published this in
Canada Free Press.
At the Democratic National Convention Obama was elected their presidential candidate and a letter was sent to all 50 states and the District of Columbia stating that it was so. The letters were signed by Nancy Pelosi and the DNC Secretary, properly notarized, 51 originals in all. They were of two kinds. One went to the State of Hawaii and it contained the language:
“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democratic Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.”
The other 50 originals contained the wording:
“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democratic Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively:
Did you catch the typo, the same typo on all 51 originals?
So for the 49 States and the District of Columbia the certification step was never made.
The Electoral College duties are: First to certify themselves eligible to cast the ballots for their candidate, then to certify the candidates eligible to serve. After these two steps it is time to vote for President, mostly by winner takes all for their State, except Nebraska and Maine, where the vote is by congressional district and the two senatorial votes by State.
The certification step was never made, not at the Convention and not by the Electoral College.
So they made the effort to make sure the oath was perfect by repeating the taking of it so every letter of the Constitution could be fulfilled, but the certification step that would have made the oath binding in the first place was never made.
The conclusion: We have a president elect that has never taken a valid oath, because he was never certified eligible to take the oath.
Why are so few people interested in this? Is it because the constitution is no longer relevant?
Or is it because it is becoming a moot point anyway after the President signed the Copenhagen treaty in December 2009, and after the Senate ratifies it the Constitution will be no more?
And why was this missing certification step discovered by a Canadian (J.B. Williams), and the warning that ratifying the Copenhagen Treaty would sign away our sovereignty and Constitution to an unelected international body was discovered by a British subject, Lord Monckton ?
Is the press so in love with internationalism that it is forbidden to search into these matters? If so, this explains the treatment of Sarah Palin. She is a dangerous woman to internationalists, because she really loves the USA, its Constitution and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This woman had to be stopped using all means of smear known to man. It all stars to make sense.

Fast forward to the 2020 election and another vice presidential candidate. Kamala Harris was born in the U.S, thus being a native born citizen, but none of her parents were citizens at the time of her birth. They were both students at the time, and probably had F-1 or H-1b visas, or possibly green cards, but in any case they were not citizens at the time of her birth. When I immigrated to the U.s I was told that my future children could not be president. At that time this was simple truth, nobody questioned it.

Verse 95 of the Obama impeachment song: Why Obama says ISIL. (Updated)


This is a remake of verse 95of the Obama impeachment song.

Obama and all his cabinet and active generals called ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) ISIL (the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant). This must mean he did send a signal to all his Muslim friends that Israel is part of the Islamic interest sphere. Take a look at the Geographic area called the Levant:


This leads to verse 95 of the Obama impeachment song (as if sung by former President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

I say ISIL all the day

instead of ISIS, come what may.

I will Israel betray

and give it to ISIL, this I say.

Here is the video:

Biden stops Keystone XL construction at great environmental cost.

Newly elected Joe Biden has decided to stop building the Keystone XL pipeline, thus satisfying the environmentalists that want to wean us off our dependency on carbon based products, such as fuel, food and fertilizer. The arguments for denying the decision are nearly exclusively political, while the arguments to build the pipeline are concerns for our national security, economy and the environment.

Here is the deal:

Canada has the tar-sands and is extracting the oil. This was not our decision. If we don’t buy the oil, China will.

We export refined products to the Caribbean islands, which by the way have a larger carbon footprint per person than the U.S. This is good business, since the islands are too small to have a refinery of their own.

It takes more energy to run a refinery up north in a cold climate than in hot, humid Baytown, Texas.

The last time a major oil refinery was built in the U.S was 1976. A small refinery was built in 1993, in Valdez, Alaska. The  US. regulatory climate is hostile to refineries. Warren Buffett bought Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad in February 2010 and paid 44 Billion dollars for it. The railroad paid Berkshire Hathaway 2.25 Billion in dividends during the first 13 months. Warren Buffet bought the railroad after President Obama took office, since he nixed the pipeline the first time.

Right now the crude oil is transported from the Athabasca tar sands to Houston mostly by Warren Buffet’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC railroad. It is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that did stand to benefit from the decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department.
The cost of transporting the oil is about #14 dollars per barrel, much of it the cost of burning diesel fuel, generating CO2. The pipe-line can do the job for about seven dollars per barrel, much of it capital costs, some of it already spent.
We can see what happens when transporting crude oil: https://lenbilen.com/2013/07/07/ttain-derailment-in-quebec-and-keystone-xl-pipeline-a-limerick/

Warren Buffet is a major Democratic political player; he will again have frequent access to the White House. Last year the Warren Buffet organizations donated 58 million dollars to the Biden presidential campaign.

Sarah Palin once succinctly coined the phrase: “This is Crony Capitalism.”

By not importing oil from Canada the total carbon footprint will increase. We lose, and Canada loses. (I am not concerned that the CO2 is increasing, but that a valuable natural resource is unnecessary depleted.) Now it turns out that Canada has left the Kyoto Protocol but has joined the Paris accord, so they have to export the crude oil to countries that still can expand their fossil fuel burning, such as China, but they would rather export to the U.S.

So why is Joe Biden against the Keystone XL pipeline? Here are seven possibilities:

1. Like Obama, Joe Biden is a true believer that ”this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”.

2. Joe wants to deliberately wreck our economy to create a more fair society of shared sacrifices, refuses to have an energy policy that will create jobs, but will support protest movements and foment unrest.

3. Joe is acting on orders from Global Governance people that do want U.S. to be totally dependent on international law and U.N. mandates.

4. Joe wants to show leadership in implementing the Paris Climate Conference 2015, and its associated treaty.

5. Joe Biden wants to show leadership on something, like touting the “breakthrough” agreement with China, where China is allowed to emit six times as much CO2 as the U.S. by the year 2030.

6. The real reason? Like Obama, Joe is fully bought and paid for, this time by China. The old reason: https://lenbilen.com/2014/02/14/the-real-reason-obama-wont-approve-the-keystone-xl-pipeline/

7. Joe is half insane and surrounded by bad advisors.

This is the best I can do to explain the reasons for this decision.

Of umbrellas and such. A study in contrasts. A Limerick.

Umbrellas: A hard task for some.

To Barry as hard as they come.

The most powerful man:

See him do what he can.

To fold it, try using your thumb!

This was the former President Barack Obama

He always had trouble handle an umbrella.look down on his notes and talk at the same time, so he commandeered the Marines to hold the umbrella for him. To be fair he commandeered another Marine to keep President Erdogan of Turkey dry. No such consideration  was given the audience.

But he couldn’t keep his own wife out of the rain either. It is difficult to hold an umbrella, wave, walk down the stairs and keep your wife dry, all  at the same time.

HAVANA, CUBA – MARCH 20: First lady Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama, Malia Obama and Sasha Obama arrive at Jose Marti International Airport for a 48-hour visit on Airforce One March 20, 2016 in Havana, Cuba. Obama is the first President in nearly 90 years to visit Cuba, the last one being Calvin Coolidge. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

No, This is the way to handle an umbrella!

Nothing fancy, just do it. And keep your wife dry at the same time.


Try to do away with history is a sure way to repeat it. A Limerick.

Antifa and ISIS, the same

erase our hist’ry, their aim.

Do away with our past.

Start anew, this will last.

No history left to proclaim.

Like the French Revolution, when history and reason goes out the window things tend to get violent. Once the revolutionaries had killed all they could get their hands on, it was time to do away with Christianity for good. Let us no longer count time in B.C. and A.D. but start over with counting time. Once we are at it let us celebrate the creature rather than the Creator, and since we have ten fingers,  let us fully institute the metric system. One day is ten hours, one hour is one hundred minutes, one minute is 100 seconds. One week is 10 days, one month is 3 weeks.

But one year is still 12 three week months, so they had to add five or six days at the end to make it a true solar year. The extra days were given special names and were meant for celebration, somewhat like today’s Kwanzaa, also instituted to get rid of Christianity.

Needless to say, this did not last very long, but it caused a lot of damage.

ISIS worked the same way, erase history and start over. As a footnote: Former President Obama insisted on calling it ISIL; he gave ISIS the whole Levant, which includes Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and North West Saudi Arabia.

Isis demolished the Muslim version of the tomb of Jonah

JonahTomb blowupPeople walk through the rubble of the Prophet Younis Mosque after it was destroyed in a bomb attack by militants of the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIL, in the city of Mosul







Earlier Taliban destroyed some very old giant stone carvings of Buddha







Which leads us the similarities with Antifa. They too are trying to erase history. In their case they are trying to erase the shameful connection between the Democratic Party and the Civil War statues dotting the South. The Generals and civic leaders were all Democrats. O, the irony of it all!

Down they come!

All with the apparent approval of the local City (Democratic) government.

One thing still puzzles me. Why the hatred for Cristóbal Colón. His statue was decpitated, then torn down in many places?

Will we ever learn?

A final? verse on the Obama impeachment song; the new hashtag #obamagate, remember it before it is taken down.

Yesterday I learned a new word, obamagate, to compare the coup attempt against President Donald Trump with Richard Nixon’s “Third rate burglary” , called Waterecause gate.

It quickly caught on, and at 9 am today had 3. 43 million tweets. Since then it is diminishing fast:

The time for impeachment is over, but here is verse 100 to the Obama impeachment song: (Obama singing)

Twitter trends: ‘Obamagate’

Please take it down, it’ll seal my fate.

All because of my Trump hate;

the coup failed, and now it is checkmate.
