Mark Armstrong Condemns Mueller Investigation and (Apparently) #metoo

Mark Armstrong, leader of the Intercontinental Church of God, has another weekly update. In this weekly update he condemns the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia by tiring it to Hillary Clinton. Whereas in most of his weekly updates he shifts topics in a bewildering manner here he actually focuses on his topic.
Mystery solved!  But it's no thanks to the mainstream media, which has deceived the whole world with their “highly placed” sources and one “scoop” after another showing the president's inner circle up to their ears in “Russian collusion.”  There's no way you've missed the drill.  It's been the theme of every breathless “revelation” for a full year.
But even though there is so much attention about this topic he assures his readers that there is nothing to see there.
Things have become very confusing to the casual observer amid the theories and dark suppositions of Trump's guilt.  But here's the deal, in a nutshell.  The F.B.I. took and used Hillary Clinton campaign's “opposition research” dossier in cooperation with Fusion GPS and the DNC, which paid some $12.5 million for the information.  It was then used, despite being unverified and containing provably false information, to get a warrant to “tap the wires” of the Trump transition team in Trump Tower, and launch an F.B.I. investigation into the “collusion” allegation. 
He seems to imply that there is some sort of conspiracy within the FBI and the Department of Justice to cripple the Trump Administration.
Internal communications seem to show that the top counterintelligence investigator at the F.B.I. (Peter Strzok) teamed up with the Deputy Director (Andrew McCabe) and a female lawyer (Lisa Page) at Justice to implement an “insurance policy” against a “chance they couldn't take,” that being the election and inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States.  Plan “B” was to cripple the Trump presidency with the ongoing investigation of a “Special Council” (Robert Mueller), and that's been the relentless focus of headlines, “news” articles and endless analysis on many network outlets.
He seems quite relieved to learn of this.
This has been a watershed week that we'll want to remember.  For the first time in a year characterized by dark suspicions of a stolen presidential election and constant, unremitting calls for impeachment from liberal members of Congress, some light has finally been shed on the situation.  Actual communications between the F.B.I.'s head of Counter-intelligence and his Justice Dept. lawyer friend got splashed all over the internet and at least one national television network. 
He complains about concerns about President Trump. He seems present these concerns about him as some sort of plot to remove him from office.
“The leaks were unauthorized!” scream creatures of the swamp who have been riding a wave of leaks by “highly placed sources close to the 'Russia' investigation.”  It's been the most prominent feature of cable news for a year now.  Highly placed “leaks” have been rolling in like clockwork night after night, fueling exited reporting about “coming indictments,” other shoes to drop, the “walls closing in on the Oval Office” and an “unhinged” and “unfit” President Trump falling apart psychologically and emotionally. 
While Mark Armstrong writes so harshly about many things somehow President Trump escapes his ire but rather is praised.
In spite of all the dark suspicions and analysis of “Crisis in the White House,” and pending charges against the President and his inner circle, Trump hasn't appeared concerned.  His speeches are as audacious as they were during the campaign.  He seems optimistic and driven to make good on every promise.  He answers reporters' questions at length and tweets out messages to forty million odd “followers” most every day.  His attempts to enact an agenda have been overshadowed by the probability that he committed “collusion with the Russians to subvert the 2016 election.” 
He then once again insists that the media are not to be trusted. After all, if his supporters did so they just might reach a differing conclusion from Mark Armstrong's.
Amazing, isn't it, how things that are obvious often take months if not years to be recognized, reported or “proven” before the stunned eyes of the general public?  But even now, in the rubble of the massive earthquake that has hit the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice, CNN anchors are still playing dumb. Things that we've known and understood for days if not weeks are a confusing mystery for Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.  It was too much watching Don Lemon twice mispronounce and express unfamiliarity with the name Peter Strzok, when most of us have known not only his name, but his rank and all about his plainly stated “insurance policy” to “protect America from that menace (Donald Trump).” 
He flatters his audience as being more knowledgeable than the mainstream media.
At the rate things are moving, we might as well not get anxious.  It may take many weeks or some months before things we know today will be widely disseminated.  The mainstream media are so heavily invested in the “Trump team - Russia collusion” story, they won't be pried loose easily.  They've lived it, loved it and pampered it like a doctrinal “idea baby” for so long it's become a part of who and what they are! 
He seems to assures his audience that there is little possibility of President Trump getting impeached.
We've been warned that another wave of allegations may lead to many more resignations from Congress.  And we're finding out that there have been monetary considerations offered in exchange for allegations against the president.  Maybe they can force his resignation!  Fat chance. 
If Trump was forced from office he would be replaced by Vice President Pence. And if Pence had to be replaced the presidency would then be taken by Paul Ryan. And if Ryan had to be replaced next in line would be Orrin Hatch.

He then seems to belittle the #metoo movement as "driving those accused ... over some attempted hanky-panky or other." This is a dreadful mischaracterization and minimization of the recent wave of activism addressing the problem of sexual harassment in the workplace and society at large. This is a movement that society has desperately needed for a long time.
How is it that those in favor of sex education for little children, trans-gender logic, “gay marriage,” free condoms distributed at schools, government-provided birth control, basically saying there is no such thing as morality-- suddenly are OUTRAGED and driving those accused from their superior midst over some attempted hanky-panky or other.  It's plan C.  They just have to get rid of President Trump somehow, and that justifies whatever means must be deployed.  It looks like the evil-doers are being exposed, on every side of the equation.  That doesn't mean that the people of this nation, or of the Western world will acknowledge the truth of anything.  Our society holds that everything is a matter of opinion.  There are no absolutes, there are no facts, (other than that ridiculous apple on CNN) only opinions.
And so we now learn that Mark Armstrong is annoyed at an apple on CNN.

And just to make sure he states it again this week he insists that Europe is on a path to some sort of destruction. He presents President Trump as a hero fighting to preserve America's "cultural identity," whatever Armstrong means by that.
How easily the masses are deceived!  The nations of Europe have been deceived into a “green,” multi-cultural, slow-motion suicide by the pope and Angela Merkel, and yet their governments and media outlets are completely oblivious or worse, actively hiding news harmful to the EU agenda.   We've got a president trying to save what's left of the cultural identity of the United States of America, but he's up against all the socialist minions that have populated government agencies, the mainstream media, the educational system and Hollywood entertainment over the past decade and a half.  Success is but a distant hope. 
He ends with a declaration hoping for protection from those he oppose including environmentalism and seems to indicate that he does not want to live in a "diverse utopia" he claims those he oppose want to create.
May the scales fall off the eyes of the masses, in spite of the campaign to permanently cement political correctness, global-warming claptrap and the lie that a big fascist government can force us into some “green,” diverse utopia.  No thanks!   Have a great Sabbath, 

So Mark Armstrong seems to loath the thought of living in a "“green,” diverse utopia." So he wants to live in an non-diverse place? 


  1. Green and diverse is better than nothing at all. Apparently he's forgotten what happened in the Balkans when there was a sudden shift from diversity to ethnic cleansing. And green means sustainable. Mankind has learned to thwart the events which "thinned the herd" throughout the ages. Now, there are so many people on planet Earth that mankind is causing an extinction event which will either continue until there is effective global management of the problems, or until the problems become so out of control that the thinning of the herd becomes sudden and far more severe.

    Since the past election, it seems that we are headed into another period of dark ages, and Mark stupidly cheers it on as he denigrates those who are attempting to slam on the brakes and return to sanity.


  2. "And just to make sure he states it again this week he insists that Europe is on a path to some sort of destruction. He presents President Trump as a hero fighting to preserve America's "cultural identity," whatever Armstrong means by that."

    America's culture is defined as 'borders, language, and culture.' You know, American culture is right? Its not Syrian culture, or Mexico's culture, its unique Americana.

    So that is what Marks rant is about.

    1. Mark is one of those people who prefers static to dynamic. The problem is that NOTHING is static unless it is dead. Dead cannot grow. Dead cannot process new nourishing influences. An organism which ceases to grow is actually in the process of dying! Just as a restricted gene pool begins to manifest aberrations. Living, vibrant things are in constant need of refreshment. Healthy culture is constantly being refreshed by a living stream of new influences. Mark is missing out!


  3. 'Healthy culture is constantly being refreshed by a living stream of new influences. Mark is missing out!'

    Healthy people with healthy minds that want to assimilate to Americana is fine. Assimilation is the key.

    1. I agree. But it's unavoidable that assimilation will work both ways. As "they" assimilate into the dominant culture, "we" also assimilate some of "their" culture. It wasn't until I was a senior in high school that I knew there were such things as tacos. We had adapted certain influences from the Poles, the Irish, the Jews, and the Italians by that point, but not so much from Hispanics. Now we've got pitas and falafels, and other things from people who now live amongst us that previously we only studied in Social Studies Class.


    2. As it stands, over in the EU the migrants are on the war path with the people of the various states. They will never assimilate. Give them the boot!

  4. Mark is not a Trekkie?
    He would be commanding a ship where everyone's name is Scotty!
