#PrayForTrump: How to Combat Black Magick Rituals Intended to Harm Trump and His Supporters

They tried such rituals against Trump during the election, and obviously failed miserably. Even so, we should still set aside this time over the next four (eight!) Years to pray for President Trump, his administration and family, and his supporters, all of which have already been targets of violence, ridicule and slander, and even murder attempts.

The Increasingly Unhinged Russia Rhetoric Comes From a Long-Standing U.S. Playbook

Stone, the intrepid and independent journalist of the Cold War era who became, in my view, the nation’s first “blogger” even though he died before the advent of the internet. Frustrated by big media’s oppressive corporatized environment and its pro-government propaganda model, and then ultimately blacklisted from mainstream media outlets for his objections to anti-Russia narratives, Stone created his own bi-monthly newsletter, sustained exclusively by subscriptions, and spent 18 years relentlessly debunking propaganda spewing from the U.S. government and its media partners.

How the Trump regime was manufactured by a war inside the Deep State. At first glance, this isn’t obvious. Among his first actions upon taking office, Trump vetoed the Trans Pacific Partnership, the controversial free trade agreement which critics rightly said would lead to US job losses while giving transnational corporations massive power over national state policies on health, education and other issues. Trump further plans to ditch the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and US, which would have diluted key state regulations on the activities of transnational corporates on issues like food safety, the environment and banking; and to renegotiate NAFTA, potentially heightening tensions with Canada.

Trump appears to be in conflict with the bulk of the US intelligence community, and is actively seeking to restructure the government to minimize checks and balances, and thus consolidate his executive power.
