I consider this largely a fishing expedition, a farce this trial.
We have who some think is the most pro-life President ever, has beat back the persecutors of Christians, that being ISIS, historical low rates of unemployment for minorities and young women in our economy, a president standing up for a Christian pastor being held captive basically in Turkey on what look to be trumped up charges, so life is never a bed of roses so, there may be some drawbacks but everything looks pretty positive.
For example. support for Trump by the African-American community has increased tremendously. Trump says “what have you got to lose”.
Reagan was a late convert to pro-life.
George W. Bush refused to fight back and his approval numbers were pounded down.
Trump has said that he will fight back.
Reagan was not as obsessive about anti-abortion legislation as he often seemed. Early in his California governorship he had signed a permissive abortion bill that has resulted in more than a million abortions. Afterward, he inaccurately blamed this outcome on doctors, saying that they had deliberately misinterpreted the law. When Reagan ran for president, he won backing from pro-life forces by advocating a constitutional amendment that would have prohibited all abortions except when necessary to save the life of the mother. Reagan’s stand was partly a product of political calculation, as was his tactic after he was elected of addressing the annual pro-life rally held in Washington by telephone so that he would not be seen with the leaders of the movement on the evening news. While I do not doubt Reagan’s sincerity in advocating an anti-abortion amendment, he invested few political resources toward obtaining this goal.Source: The Role of a Lifetime, by Lou Cannon, p. 812 , Jul 2, 1991
At least we have evidence that Augustine repented. Do we have any evidence that Don repented? I do find it interesting though that Brennan voted for Gus Hall when he was young and that seems to be an unpardonable sin among some here, however, the Donald commits adultery and we are told we are not to judge. Obviously we cannot judge either man’s soul, but to what extent are past sins irrelevant? There does seem to be at least some repentance in the case of Brennan.
What an unfortunate phrase. Giuliani says a lot of unhelpful things for an attorney.
Voting for a communist is voting to impose a system of injustice on everyone. It is voting to confiscate personal property. It is voting to inflict misery on everyone.
Committing adultery is a serious injustice against one’s spouse and in relevant instances the spouse of your partner in sin. It is a serious sin, and it tells us about character. But it is narrow in its impact whereas voting for communism is wide. Brennan wanted to hurt everyone with his action.
What we think is irrelevant. I think Brennan is a dink who is untrustworthy, and a proverbial snake in the grass when it comes to supporting a President he doesn’t like. His loyalties to communism in the 70s don’t really factor for me.
What Trump thinks is not irrelevant thought, and unless he has cited Brenann’s past love for Gus Hall as the reason for losing his clearance, I am not sure why past sins matter in any case.
