Now, if we could just do something more about the persecution of Catholics and human rights abuses in China. But I have a feeling that this is also a concern in the present administration specifically in regard to China such that this will also arise more strongly in negotiations between these USA and China.
I’m not going to comment much on volleys of whatever kind between the Holy See and China in the last couple of years. A new friend, privy to that goes on with such things, enlightened me that there is much more going on behind the scenes, much much more.
But on a secular level, I’m so happy to see these USA speak frankly about some of the nefarious practices of China.
I even detect a bit of swagger, as was promised. That’s refreshing.
John Kerry, ex-Secretary of State, actively undermining U.S. Policy, was in Iran counselling this largest state sponsor of terrorism to ignore the present U.S. Administration. The policy of the Iranian government is to wipe Israel and these USA from the face of the earth. Why subversively conspire with them?
Immediately after the funeral of Saint John Paul II back in the day, I had a 15 minute conversation with John Kerry in which he promised me a televised debate. That was to be on abortion issues. But now I would like to expand that to include Israel and Iran.
What shocked me in speaking with him is that it was as if I was talking to a robot, with someone else somewhere else desperately pushing buttons so as to make whatever soundbite come out of his mouth, but none of these soundbites had anything to do with the conversation. It was all so vacuous. Soulless. Styrofoam. Puppetry.
Perhaps I am mean, but if I were to get a televised debate, I would like the presenters to put up a score board on screen so as to number how many times totally irrelevant soundbites were used as answers. Numbers go negative, deeper in the hole when irrelevant answer are given; one goes up in score with each true answer.
But, forget about me. Mike Pompeo has a great stage presence. He hates irrelevance and he’s always on point. I’d love to see a debate between him and Kerry, but this time in court.
