Then there's current CNP president Thomas "my shirt ain't" Fitton

"Fitton is a long term senior member of the Council for National Policy, a right wing umbrella organisation for groups such as Judicial Watch. Fitton is the current President of the Council for National Policy, taking up the role in February 2022. Fitton has been identified as unindicted co-conspirator #1 in the Georgia state indictment of Donald Trump and 18 other defendants for their attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. He is described in the indictment as having written a speech for Trump prior to the election in which Trump would falsely attribute his loss to voter fraud." wikipedia

He's also allegedly responsible for persuading Trump it was a good idea not to return the classified documents he stole!

Holy...! Have we found ourselves the deep state plant? JK

I read those books while I was living in Houston where a lot of people on the bus every morning were reading one and then the Bible and it was almost as if they were using the Left Behind series as a concordance. Spooky people. I hadn't given them much thought lately but I definitely see the connections to Trump's evangelical fiends and how much he has done to keep their favor.

This is one of the first films that I saw as a little kid, The Thief In the Night, early dispensationalism. What strikes me is that all awareness of being ready at any time because the Bible said nobody knows when, is lost when you’re trying to bring it on. Ditto with the antichrist deceiving the church- that’s interpreted as everyone but me & my church. https://youtu.be/s8a4fiqfADU?si=kHVZq1gJ6xupnBCe

The Turkish Ottoman Empire, which included key parts of Saudi Arabia, had lots of crypto-Jews (pretending to be Moslems) called Donmeh and have connections to the Saudi royal family and Wahhabi religion.

What does Kushner, Trump, Netanyahu, Putin and his oligarchs all have in common? Chabad.

Erdogan and MBS? Donmeh.

Both religions believe in a Messiah who will rise from the dead.

I used to be a member of a small synagogue that created a sort of collaboration w a (evangelical) church as a move toward growing community. One high holiday service when they had a member of the church blow the shofar, and at breakfast, after a conversation w one of the members about her allegiance to trump (“it doesn’t matter what he does in this life time, it’s the next that matters!”), I reached out to the synagogue president and asked her if she ever considered that they (the church) were using us/this synagogue toward rapture. She said “No,” and that she’d ask the board their thoughts. Three days later she reported back that no one agreed w my perspective/concern. I told her I would not be returning so as to honor my concern, and wished her well. I never went back.

Wow. Thank you for that story.

Yes, it’s one of the most cynical and despicable parts of the GOP lie that they are “pro-Israel.” Underneath that is genocidal antisemitism.
