not satire


For more than five years, Donald Trump’s new top campaign aide, Paul Manafort, lobbied for a Washington-based group that Justice Department prosecutors have charged operated as a front for Pakistan’s intelligence service, according to court and lobbying records reviewed by Yahoo News.

Manafort’s work in the 1990s as a registered lobbyist for the Kashmiri American Council was only one part of a wide-ranging portfolio that, over several decades, included a gallery of controversial foreign clients ranging from Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and Zaire’s brutal dictator Mobutu Sese Seko to an Angolan rebel leader accused by human rights groups of torture. His role as an adviser to Ukraine’s then prime minister, Viktor Yanukovych, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, prompted concerns within the Bush White House that he was undermining U.S. foreign policy. It was considered so politically toxic in 2008 that presidential candidate John McCain nixed plans for Manafort to manage the Republican National Convention — a move that caused a rupture between Manafort and his then business partner, Rick Davis, who at the time was McCain’s campaign manager.

    the big concern is the question of whether or not that money is actually going to the poor … or is it lining the pockets of lawmakers and religious elites? eh—charles?

    and why pay for these not so trustworthy institutions that often recruit for their MISSIONS?

    the questions continue and no one seems to want to know the answers—the truth about religions and their deities. who said 10% of your job earnings? catholic social teaching read it that way and made it religious law, AND it seems they use this same law to question and judge others … much like those As, Bs, Cs, Ds and Fs—THEIR TESTS for children … always testing the kids to see if they are what? intelligent according to their DOGMA? (this is NOT EASTERN mindset)

    NOW LISTEN UP! some give their LIVES for the impoverished! hmm … isn’t there a CHRIST ILLUSTRATION in there somewhere? eh—charles?

    do not impose your catholic solicit teaching on others when your own religionists abuse and hide the crimes. play at being caregivers. it looks cheap and overly glazed… and attracts a lot of flies. catholic social teaching wants others to pay for their destitute religious …

    now … regarding sanders? he made a choice to use his hero pope without doing his homework … so let him roast in that one.
