Summary of the US Intelligence Community’s Assessment of the April 4 Attack

SYRIA-CONFLICT-GAS

Please Note: Before you wig out and reach the stratosphere in a ranting screed, please read this. I am not making a statement pro or anti-Assad or Syria. It is well-known that I have been pro-Assad even to the point of visiting Syria with his protection. Here is ONE assessment with evidences. If we are going to understand this Middle East conflict then we must view all sides and examine all the evidence. Only the cold, hard truth will lead to resolution. I have been shocked that opinions on both sides have defended their positions without any evidence whatsoever.

No, Not Trump, Not Ever

Here is another magnificent, thoughtful essay by David Brooks. And he references Psalm 73.

“As the founders would have understood, he is a threat to the long and glorious experiment of American self-government. He is precisely the kind of scapegoating, promise-making, fear-driving and deceiving demagogue they feared.” David Brooks

No, Not Trump, Not Ever
