Hi, Ron

Fabio is from the "planet" of Qatar, hence his remark about Al Jazeera. Your guess is as good as mine, how connected he is to American reality. He seems to think the Cold War is still raging, and that Russia is at the center of an international Communist conspiracy. This whole buch of MSM BS about some "Trump-Putin" connection is straight out of the McCarthy era, making Fabio about 66 years out-of-date. If Trump were a Democrat, or an Establishment Republican, people like Fabio would have been laughed off the stage.

Trump's joke about Hillary's awful email housekeeping struck her like her dentist hitting a nerve in her tooth. For a woman who has probably practiced lying in front of the mirror since she was two years old, she's awfully jerky. Come clean, Hillary: Were those 30,000 emails security-sensitive or not? If they were not, then what does she have to fear about some hacker making them public? It's all so phony, so childish, so Clinton!

While Hillary has been playing "What's My Line" or "To Tell the Truth", for entertainment and election purposes only, Mr. Trump has been making some serious foreign policy proposals. For instance, while Queen Clinton is looking longingly back to the Korean War era and finding red hairs under every pillow, The Donald is proposing talks with Russia, SERIOUS talks -- not Obama "over a beer" chats, to defuse tensions from the Baltic to Syria.

Trump's latest proposal involves Crimea, which voted overwhelmingly last year, to be annexed by Russia. The region is historically and demographically Russian,

and Donald Trump, seemingly alone among our country's "great political minds", seems to be aware of this. Trump proposes that we consider letitimizing the vote of the Crimeans, in exchange for other moves by Russia that can help stabilize the region. The Obama-Clinton policy in this regard, has been to believe in the fantasy of a Russian Crimea that somehow wants to be part of the Ukraine, and seriously entangling our European allies (many of whom are dependent on Russia for fuel) with anti-Russian sanctions.

Donald Trump would be good for America, and for the rest of the world as well. Obama and Clinton have made us mistrusted, impossible to deal with, and a laughing stock to leaders around the globe; and there would be a tremendous sigh of relief in all quarters, if the Obama-Clinton nightmare were ended

Ultimately, though, it is the God of Israel Who will call this election, for HIS purposes. Just what are those purposes? Will the God who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah support the West's desire to promote homosexuality? Does the God who commanded us to "honor our father and mother" want to support a culture built on ad-hoc, noncommittal "free sex" relationships? Does the God who said, "I am THE LORD your God, ye shall serve no others" want to support a society that promotes Islam and Atheism? Does the God who carefully creates life in a woman's womb want to support her going to the local butcher-doctor to have it killed? Is there any reason in the world, other than an inexplicable mercy, that God should WANT us to be blessed with a Trump presidency? That is why I realize that we could very well get Queen Hillary as our new Empress. The bottom line is, that this isn't about a race between Clinton and Trump at all: it is about our national connection with God, a connection that may be in serious trouble.
