"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Why must everyone laugh at his mighty sword?



These are not the powerful tweets you are looking for.

Please tell me this is a nightmare I can wake up from:

“What card left do you have to get China to act?” Fox News’ Bill Hemmer asked [White House adviser Sebastian] Gorka, after referencing an op-ed in a state-owned Chinese newspaper that downplayed the influence China has over North Korea.

“We have the President’s Twitter feed,” Gorka responded. “We have the most powerful man in the world making it very clear that we came out of the Mar-a-Lago summit with very high hopes.”

Hemmer returned to Gorka’s earlier comment: “With all due respect, can a Twitter feed change the mind of those leading China?”

“If you can win a U.S. election with it, I think it’s pretty powerful, Bill, don’t you?” Gorka replied.
The "Mar-a-lago summit"?  You mean when Trump got schooled on Korean history from the Chinese perspective, and he believed a pack of lies?  Or Trump's masterful use of Twitter when Korea launched a missile test, and Trump was preoccupied with his failing Muslim ban, CNN, Mark Cuban, and Stephen Miller's public atrocities in the name of the Administration?

Please tell me somebody involved in foreign policy for this Administration is smarter than a bean bag.

Trump: I have no choice to say that about it. Malcom [sic], I am going to say that I have no choice but to honor my predecessor's deal. I think it is a horrible deal, a disgusting deal that I would have never made. It is an embarrassment to the United States of America and you can say it just the way I said it. I will say it just that way. As far as I am concerned that is enough Malcom [sic]. I have had it. I have been making these calls all day and this is the most unpleasant call all day. Putin was a pleasant call. This is ridiculous.

Turnbull: Do you want to talk about Syria and DPRK?

Trump: [inaudible] this is crazy.

Turnbull: Thank you for your commitment. It is very important to us.

Trump: It is important to you and it is embarrassing to me. It is an embarrassment to me, but at least I got you off the hook. So you put me back on the hook.

Turnbull: You can count on me. I will be there again and again.
Okay, well, outside of the Oval Office, then; maybe even outside of the White House.

I won't feel safe until Gorka is deported back to Britland.
