Religion, Nations, and Geopolitical Review: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26

by A. Joseph Lynch


The supposedly "damning" testimony against President Trump from the acting ambassador to Ukraine, William Taylor, was based - again - on hearsay. The Washington Post reports that: 'Taylor testified in his opening statement that he was told Trump wanted the aid linked to Ukraine’s willingness to investigate the 2016 election and the Bidens" (emphasis ours). Taylor is a career diplomat, Russia hawk, and most likely a Never Trumper. While his testimony is not surprising, few are covering it as the hearsay that it is.

Despite the testimony gathered by the faux Congressional investigation, the tables may be turning against impeachment as well as those responsible for the Russia collusion hoax. The NY Times released a poll this week revealing that 53% of those in the six key swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina, and Arizona oppose impeachment. There is even talk that Pelosi might walk back from the impeachment cliff's edge before all is said and done. Meanwhile Republicans are pushing back. In the House a group of GOP congressmen stormed the secret investigation while Lindsey Graham is leading a push in the Senate to press the House for a formal impeachment inquiry vote and for the extension of basic due process protections to the president. Graham's resolution already has forty-four GOP senators supporting it.

The Trump team investigation, led by Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, is now reportedly expanding. On Tuesday it was announced that the Barr-Durham investigation in Rome led to the discovery of new evidence which necessitated the expansion of the probe. Joseph Mifsud, who played a key role in setting up the Russian collusion hoax, is now asking for police protection and seems willing to spill the beans on what took place in 2016. It is being reported that Durham is now "very interested" in interviewing James Clapper and John Brennan, two men we've critiqued many times here at AoA. The FBI - and with it James Comey - is also coming under scrutiny. On Thursday we learned that the investigation is now widening still further into a criminal probe. Grand juries, subpoenas, and arrests could soon be forthcoming. With IG Horowitz's report only days from release and fresh demands being made on the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) to investigate newly released Peter Strzok texts, is it any wonder why the members of the intelligence community are coming out of the woodwork to accuse Trump in the new Ukraine hoax?

Impeachment is going nowhere, Republicans in Congress are fighting back, and real investigations are taking place. The tides seem to be turning.


PACHAMAMA DROWNED:  Drama unfolded as Pachamama statues of the Amazon were thrown into the Tiber. Church Militant triumphantly reported the statues as idols destroyed by devout Catholics. But is the story that simple? Could their depiction of the pregnant woman be a stepping stone towards both protecting the dignity of life as well as the Virgin with child? We at AoA patiently await the final document of the Amazon synod and level-headed words from the Holy Father.

VATICAN DEFAULT?: Donations to Peter's Pence, a chief source of funding for the Vatican and Church charity, appear to have plummeted €101 million in 2006 to less than €60 million today. A new book, Universal Judgment, from Italian investigative reporter Gianluigi Nuzzi claims a Vatican default could be coming in the years ahead.

MARTIN QUESTIONS INERRANCY: In a battle between Biblical truth and homosexual activism, James Martin has sided with homosexuality and called into question Biblical inerrancy.


GABBARD CALLS OUT HILLARY: Hillary Clinton, "the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know - it was always you... It's clear now that this primary is between you and me. Don't cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly."

MEDIA DECLINE: Already in 2019, newsrooms have laid off over 7,200 employees. A new California law is now effectively banning freelance journalism and now the Huffington Post is up for sale.

ANOTHER BAD POLL: Last week we covered the poor impeachment polling of FoxNews. This week news came out that the recent Pew polling on impeachment also over represented Democrats (at 56% versus only 42% Republican).

SCOTUS ON GERRYMANDERING: The Supreme Court ruled Monday that state courts - not federal courts - should decide gerrrymandering cases for their respective states. With the GOP in control of many statehouses and governor mansions, this is a win for Republicans.


NATO RIFT GROWS: The Syrian invasion by NATO member Turkey continues to erode the defunct alliance, making it all the more irrelevant in the post-Cold War global order.

BREXIT PASSES: The British House of Commons has finally passed Boris Johnson's Brexit deal with the EU but failed to agree on Johnson's proposed timetable. More action is needed from the House of Lords, but progress on Brexit is thankfully being made.

CANADIAN ELECTION RESULTS: Results information from Dr. Steve Turley.

NEW ISRAELI GOVERNMENT: Netanyahu couldn't form a government. His rival, Benny Gantz, has been given the green light to attempt forming one of his own. If this fails, early elections may be forthcoming.


FEMALE MERCHANTS OF DEATH: Women Are CEO’s Of Top Weapons Manufactures

CLAPPING BANNED AT OXFORD: The PC insanity continues.

HUNGARY FINES COCA-COLA: Hungary fined Coca-Cola for violating a section of the nation's Advertising Act in promoting homosexuality.
