War is Peace.
President Trump and The Pope came face to face after the mainstream media had promoted this clash of the titans as likely to end in fireworks as the two world ‘leaders’ sparred over border walls, socialism, immigration, global terror, and whatever else the media thinks will divide the world most effectively.
Sadly for the media, nothing crazy happened…

The Pope even joked with Melania about how ‘big’ Trump was…

Maybe that’s enough of a slur to raise CNN’s threat level?
“Thank you. I won’t forget what you said,” Trump told Pope Francis, before leaving the Pope’s private study after a half-hour private meeting.
As CNN reports, neither Trump nor the Pope revealed what their conversation entailed and neither the White House nor the Vatican offered any immediate clues, leaving those curious about the first meeting between the two starkly different world leaders thirsting for more. In a statement, the Vatican said only that the two men discussed “the promotion of peace in the world through political negotiation and interreligious dialogue” and homed in on the need to protect Christians in the Middle East.
“He is something,” Trump said of the Pope later in the day, during a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
“We had a fantastic meeting. We’re liking Italy very, very much and it was an honor to be with the Pope.”
Let’s hope some anonymous source has some inside scoop of the shouting match they had, or the major disagreements?

No doubt about it.
The coup d’etat has been successful.
The Deep State – a.k.a. the police state, a.k.a. the military industrial complex – has taken over.
The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad.
When in doubt, follow the money trail.

In a large, tin-roofed warehouse near Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, members of a team of modern space warriors spend their days hatching plots to defeat the US military in extraterrestrial combat.
They’re called Space Aggressors.
Their job is to act like the enemy during mock space battles to help U.S. units prepare for a conflict that may one day extend into the cosmos.

The public University of Oregon spent $23,000 on research before deciding whether to change the name of several buildings on campus, which students claim have racist histories.
A black student group at the University of Oregon demanded that campus buildings be renamed after uncovering that several of the buildings are named after men with controversial histories.
Dunn Hall, a prominent building on campus, is set to be renamed after the students uncovered that the building’s namesake was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
