The words below (inconceivable from every Western European head of State or Government) show how far away Western Government have drifted from the Christian feeling and practice that is their very cultural matrix.
They also show the huge difference between the great Donald J Trump and the lesbian bitch who tought herself entitled to his office.
Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 3, 2017, as a National Day of Prayer for the Victims of Hurricane Harvey and for our National Response and Recovery Efforts. We give thanks for the generosity and goodness of all those who have responded to the needs of their fellow Americans. I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers today for all those harmed by Hurricane Harvey, including people who have lost family members or been injured, those who have lost homes or other property, and our first responders, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and medical professionals leading the response and recovery efforts. Each of us, in our own way, may call upon our God for strength and comfort during this difficult time. I call on all Americans and houses of worship throughout the Nation to join in one voice of prayer, as we seek to uplift one another and assist those suffering from the consequences of this terrible storm.
Thank God for President Trump. I do not agree 100% with what he does or says, but I don’t want to even think where we would be now without this great man.
Whenever some adherent of the “religion of peace” blows up himself in the air or does something just as stupid, UK Muslim leaders are not slow in condemning, in very generic term, “violence”. The mention of “Muslim violence” is not really there. It's a very generic condemnation of bad behaviour “whenever it may come from”.
Neither the BBC nor the mainstream press have a problem with it.
It is, therefore, strange that when a death occurs in the course of incidents which saw violence on both sides, Trump should condemn one side exclusively.
Actually, Trump is far more justified than the above mentioned Muslim leaders, because in the latter's case the violence is undoubtedly all on our side, and in Trump's case this is not the case.
Trump is right also in the “terrorism” quarrel. The death in Charlottesburg is a mixture of heated spirits and road rage. Never in my life have I seen such an episode called “terrorism”, and I have seen a lot of it in several Countries. The fake news machine just does not want to stop.
And please leave poor General Lee alone. A wonderful soldier and patriot that every Nation would be proud to call his own, and an Abolitionist to boot.
One thing you can safely say of these liberals and assorted leftists is that, besides not being born geniuses, they are ignorant of their own history.
It has been announced today that President Trump has put an end to the madness of trannies in the army. Not only, mind, in combat roles, but in any capacity whatsoever.
Every sane person cannot but be pleased at the slow recovery of sanity the USA are attempting under President Trump. Not that the event in itself is anything world shattering. A functioning brain should be enough to prevent the situation that Trump he today corrected in the first place.
What is remarkable is the willingness to go against a madness now accepted as normality by vast swathes of the once Christian West.
Another day, another baby step toward ps normality under President Trump. No thanks to all the BeverTrumpers and the fake conservative Judases who would have accepted Mad Dyke Hillary at the White House.
Keep winning, President Trump. And please do not forget all those, like Jeff Sessions, who are your real strength.
It appears that justices of the US Supreme Court give a kind of solemn reception to their employees every 5 years in office : 5, 10, 15, and so on.
You will be pleased to know that Justice Kennedy, who also follows the custom, has just given such a reception, for year… 29.
It does not take a genius to understand what this means.
God willing, the announcement will be made tomorrow. This would be huge.
Mind, a huge battle will ensue as there will be no shortage of RINO Senators reflecting whether it is not better to profile themselves as “middle of the road”, “uniparty” little weasels and find excuses to stop the appointment of a decent candidate. But it seems to me that they would be underestimating the mood in the Country at large.
This can be huge. Gorsuch was the replacement for the loss of Scalia, but another like Gorsuch instead of Judas Kennedy would tip the scale for very long. And if Baader-Meinhof …. apologies…. Bader Ginsburg decides to retire too – or else the Grim Reaper asks to have a word with her – that would be huge, squared.
I can't contain my excitement. I have been waiting all month. 29 years reception? Really?
Finger crossed. Lots of prayers. Tomorrow could be one of those days that change the course of history.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
For my “never tire of winning” series, a new example of the way this President thinks and works.
Trump has once again demonstrated he absolutely wants to deliver. However, his way of delivery is not a draconian and ultimately unrealistic “everything on day one” method.
On the one hand, he can tackle the issues one at a time, and pick his battles in the proper order. On the other hand, he loves to tease and keep people in suspense; as if to punish his lukewarm supporters and enjoy the shattered hopes of his enemies. There is in this, I think, a mixture of calculated strategy and amused mastery of the game of politics.
We see this happening again with the decision to pull out of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. A clear electoral promise was followed by a mixture of harsh statements and more conciliatory messages. Donald The Cat played with this particular mouse for fairly long, before delivering a mortal blow that will remain the more impressed in the consciousness of allies and enemies alike.
Make no mistake: Trump knew what he wanted to do from day one. He decided to build suspense in order to give more emphasis to his decision. He also enjoyed the faces of those who had hoped to the last, not very intelligently, that he would make a U-Turn on a policy already fully implemented (coal, pipelines) in order to please… some fat, smug, German bitch.
I am glad the decision came now. Trump waited to first have the momentum build, then told the other chief of government what morons they are, then built more suspense, then delivered a mortal blow to the Paris Agreement, but not without saying “if you ever become sane again come to me in confidence and we shall talk”.
Not only he delivered 100% on his promise, but he had a lot of fun along the way. If you understand the way the man works you will have a lot of fun, too.
We keep winning and winning. Boy, am I having fun.
Thank you, Lord, for the best President since Ronald Reagan.
The bogus religion of earth and bogus science was dealt a deadly blow yesterday as President Trump announced his Country's exit from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
The childish reaction of the bunch of morons elected by the European voters is a stunning expression of denial of the “not my President” kind. It will work in the short term as the morons try to make themselves beautiful with their moronic voters, but it is clearly doomed as reality sets in and the European industrial machinery feels the pinch of costly, idiotic regulation whilst the US industry thrives. Nor is the EU in a position to bully the EU into complying with their environ-mentalist requests as they would do with lesser Country.
It would appear the biggest loser is China, which had profited of Limp Wrist Obama to secure a position of scandalous advantage and will now rapidly lose it even as the US look very closely at their imports from China. But I do not think this reflects reality.
The biggest loser is the new cult of man made global warming, which now lies on the ground with a hole in his belly pretty much as big as the United States. It will never recover, and will die of a slow horrible death as even European corrupted elites wake up to simple economic realities. Watch the narrative slowly unravel as the European Economies are confronted with the bill of their collective stupidity.
Welcome back to environmental sanity, world.
Once again, thank God for the USA.
A great Country in the midst of idiots.
Pope Francis heaped insults on Donald Trump when… he thought he would lose.
Sadly for him, Donald Trump won. Bergoglio, who is just as good at bullying the weak as he is incapable of opposing the strong, had to readjust to reality and decide whether he wanted to part of the “resistance” (outing himself as a damn Sixty-Eighter for the last of Cathokic Trump voters, who are an awful lot) or limit himself to the useful trite common place that do not frontally attack anyone of the really powerful and popular.
Trump, on the other hand, keeps being his usual self. Trump would screw someone multiple times whilst smiling telling the world what a wonderful person the screwed one is. He has done it with Romney, he is doing it with Francis. Today we had another example: Trump beaming, Francis grumpy. It was clear who of the two has bent the other to doing what he has to do.
The Wall with come. Francis will look and whine, but the Wall will still come. Trump will sport a radiant smile as he swears how much he likes the Francis, and forces everyone to acknowledge him as the POTUS and just live with it. It will be mighty fine to watch. Today, Francis has contributed to make America great again by being too cowardly to risk an open confrontation with Trump.
But again, this is what the man always does. A bit of pressure, and he will cave in. No pressure, and he will eat you alive.
A last word about the gifts. Trump to Francis: Martin Luther King. Francis to Trump: (as always) his own crappy writings. Francis is so full of himself he thinks he is the best thing anyone could read.
What a humble Pope we have.
Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, but he is the gift that keeps on … winning.
The recent decision to appoint ten federal judges of various types – all of them in the mould of Judge Gorsuch – shows once again that the man is serious about the return of sanity in the American judicial courts. The number of vacancies is higher than normal, in part no doubt because Obama lost control of the Senate and preferred to wait rather than appoint decent judges. Trump's victory and (narrow) majority in the Senate now allows him to help shape the federal courts for decades to come, through the appointment of young judges with impeccable credentials.
This is another example of how important Trump's victory was not only for the United States, but for Western Civilisation and Christianity in general. We are winning in so many ways that we should count our blessings instead of moaning of what is going slower than we expected.
Remember the sanctimonious Judases? No doubt, they will never be happy. They have decided never to be, lest it sullies their sanctimonious feelings of utter superiority to us mere, corrupt, compromising mortals.
Idiots and traitors. They must be despised now that we have won just the same as if we had lost. They are the scum of Catholicism. I wish we could have a Clinton administration applying only to them.
Yes, not all is perfect. Yes, the daughter and son-in-law are bad influences. Yes, there are people around Trump who try to steer him in the homo globalist direction.
But look at how smart the man is. Is he not delivering way, way more than any other candidate would have done? How realistic is it that, after building half his electoral campaign of the wall, he will cave on it? I'd say he will rather bide his time and then go nuclear on the RINOs, and this is one I would not want to have against me come primary time. How realistic is it that, after clearly ending the War on Coal, he will cave in on the Paris treaty? He will rather use it to expose the stupidity and anti-American attitude of the Obama administration. I have watched his 100 days Pennsylvania rally in its entirety, and I had never seen anything like that since the time of Thatcher and Reagan.
He promised the wall once again, by the way. Just in case the Doubting Thomases got nervous.
In the meantime the wall is being planned, the judges are being appointed, the economy is profiting from a new optimism, the health reform is going forward, the tax reform might do the same too, the ISIS is being bombed, North Korea is being tackled, the pipelines are going forward, the TPP is dead, Canada can't cheat on timber and milk derivative anymore, mining has a future again, I am sure I am forgetting a lot.
And then there is the elementary matter of freedom. It is easy to forget how important first and second amendment are when… they are not in danger anymore. Soon even the Sanctimonious Judases will pretend not to know – or will want you to forget – that they were fully ok with both of them being endangered and possibly hollowed out in ways never seen before, as they revel in their Schadenfreude. It truly seems that there is a particularly poisonous category of idiot that will only be satisfied when he, and all those around him, are miserable.
Never tire of winning. Enjoy these years, and do your utmost that they may go on for as long as possible. And not expect perfection.
Expect victory after victory, and a country recovered to sanity both for its own sake and for the sake of the Western Country looking at it for guidance (and protection).
Folks, things are going fine.
Read here a detailed report about the exemplary behaviour of justice Neil Gorsuch in his first month at the Supreme Court. You could not wish for better reassurance.
Stop for a moment now, and think what a threat to the entire Western Civilisation we would have been witnessing now if Hitlery had been elected, and had managed to have someone in the mould of the lesbian Kagan appointed. Not impossible to do at all, with 48 votes assured and no scarcity of RINO sellouts.
The appointment of Gorsuch alone is, quite likely, the defining moment of Trump's first term. More important than even the wall. I can only hope and pray that Kennedy decides to announce his retirement next month (as widely rumoured), and I am confident Trump would give us another candidate just as good: an event, this, also extremely important as it would tip the scale in favour of sanity for a long time. Kennedy proved a solemn disappointment, and I am sure the Gipper has rolled in his tomb many times.
If you really want to dream, I authorise you to wonder about the health of Bader Ginsburg, the now 84 years old non-observant liberal Jewess (I wonder how you can have better credentials as a hater of Christian societies and institutions).
Not wishing her death, of course.
Perish the thought.
She can always retire. But at 84 and expecting two terms for Trump I think the old woman will need a certain amount of stamina to make it through 2023 (expect no appointment if she dies in the election year).
Trump's victory already gave us a huge gift in the form of Gorsuch. More may happen. Actually, it is not unthinkable at all that Trump will appoint three judges during his first term alone. That would be more winning, and even more winning.
Never tire of winning. Never tire of thanking God that Hitlery didn't make it. Enjoy the awful lot that you already have and push together with Donald Trump to enjoy what you don't have yet.
It will not be all roses. But in comparison to a Clinton win it will look like the Garden of Eden every single day.
President Donald Trump is about to sign an order on religious liberty protecting Christians from the Gaystapo.
On this, as on much else, there had been rumours Trump was going to renege on his promises. On this, as on much else, Trump will prove he can deliver.
However, it's fair to say we must all get accustomed to Trump's style. He invites Mitt “Meow” Romney to talks for a possible job as Secretary of State : it takes weeks for the world to understand he was simply mocking and humiliating the poor idiot. He appears to favour Ryancare and to want it passed, it takes weeks for the world to understand he did not want to be accused of sabotaging Ryan and was going for the best possible outcome for him (Ryan smashes against the wall, and can't accuse him of anything) or for the second best (Ryancare passes and Trump has merely helped the guy to get something done). Then we will, one day, have another version, that passes, and Trump will get all the merit for stepping up to the plate and doing the job for the incompetent cuck. Boy, this one is a smart cookie.
Trump has a strange style. He isn't there for the fast win. He doesn't care what you think of him today provided he has his eyes focused on his objectives. Those who think he will be caving in on the wall just make me smile. He doesn't need the funding now, and prefers to eat his enemy one bite at a time. Gingrich tried the total war and lost. Trump isn't acting without thinking. Trump is the “art of the deal”, not the Samurai type.
The executive order on religious liberty will probably not be as though as the draft, though politico & Co. have all interest to cry wolf. But again, what has not come now will come later. It isn't smart to think Trump will compromise what has brought him to victory to please little darling daughter and son-in-law, and all those people ranting against whom got him elected.
At the same time, you must not expect a Crusader or an ideological fighter. Trump is a businessman, not a warrior. He is good at extracting all he can (and some more) when he can, with patience or with vengeance according to the situation on the ground.
The “Trump Way” will not please us always. He will not deliver on everything. He will drive us mad at times (Romney? Really??!!); but there is logic and purpose in what he does, and he will end up doing enormously better than every Clinton, Romney or McCain would have done.
Those who are most disappointed in him are those who have thought “America First” meant brutal Isolationism no matter what, or those who thought they had found the Spotless Crusader. Unrealistic positions both.
Three months later, Trump has already delivered Gorsuch, which is huge, and has taken decisive action in many other areas (from the TPP to the coal industry, from the pipelines to North Korea, from Syria to the Canadian wood and milk; this without counting the executive orders battled by absurdly politicised judicial activists). The future already looks much different than if Hitlery had won, and Gorsuch's appointment alone takes care of that.
My suggestion: keep calm and trust the Donald.
Pope Francis has dished us another portion of involuntary comics with his latest interview on the plane.
There is so much nonsense in this interview that even Aleteia readers should be able to detect it without difficulties.
The very assertion that a war between North Korea and the USA could destroy “a good part of humanity” shows basic ignorance of (or wilful deception about) the fact that North Korea does not have the ability to launch nuclear warheads. One thing is the ability to cause a nuclear reaction to take place is some huge cavern (every Western Country has the technology to do so), quite another is to have this ability transferred to a warhead. Francis' assertion is made even more stupid by the simple consideration that Trump's showdown with the North Korean is due exactly to the necessity to avoid that this kind of threat becomes reality one day (and if we listen to Francis it most certainly will). This man goes blabbering around and he hasn't the faintest idea of what the facts on the ground are.
Almost as dumb is the second pearl, the idea that North Korea would be willing to see reason if some neutral third party like Norway asks them to please be nice. I wonder what Francis has been smoking these past several decades, but whatever it was it blinded him completely to the obvious reality of a regime so dug in in its own ideological trench that nothing short of the certainty of harsh punishment can – if it all can – deter them from digging themselves deeper in it to the endangerment of us all. Heck, they don't even listen to the Chinese! But no, give them a Francismediator and soon it will be biscuits and wine all around.
Thirdly – and I will stop there out of sheer exhaustion – is the typical Francisidea (and, typically, uncatholic thinking) that the United Nations should be the world policeman dealing with these issues. The man comes to the point of complaining that the UN is not powerful enough.
You don't say, Francis dear? And you already go to school, dear little boy?
I thank God that Hitlery was defeated and we have at the helm a real man, with real balls, and the for him very typical “can do” rather than “will talk” attitude. A man forced to pick up the problems the Gay Mulatto left to grow unchecked, and apparently determined to see the end of them.
War is never pleasant. But at times, it is necessary. Effeminate leaders will dance around the issues and let them grow worse, but decisive leaders will tackle the dangers before they get out of control.
The stupidity of Chamberlain, who wanted to “avoid war”, was instrumental in giving us WWII. There is hope that this time, the modern Chamberlain was replaced in time before the worst happens.
As to Francis, he can set his heart at peace: in matters of peace and war, the UN will continue to count less than my cat.
And so will he.
This little effort has maintained on several occasions that the experiences of the past 15 years have shown that it is not the job of the United States to “impose democracy” on less civilised nations. Particularly then, when the less civilised nations are, well, prevalently Muslim and therefore unlikely to behave in a civilised manner unless some strong ruler keeps the Muslim mob in check.
I have, therefore, always praised Trump’s change of policy compared to Gay Mulatto concerning Syria. If you ask me, our card in the region is the Government, not any group of Islamic present or future fundamentalist (note to the reader: whenever a Muslim government is in power, sooner or later fanatic Islamists seize control of it. Therefore, the allegedly “moderate” Muslims of today are the troublemakers of tomorrow).
However, this does not mean that Assad can do whatever he wants. He must understand that his freedom to be a bastard is limited to internal matters of his. No one expects him to be a retiring wallflower, but it is clear that if he resorts to a) genocide or b) chemical weapons then this is something that cannot be tolerated. The only remaining superpower has the means, and I would add a moral duty, to act on this whenever reasonably feasible.
It is, therefore, not true that Trump has changed his policy on Syria. Firstly, because he hasn’t (the American Government has still chosen Assad’s government to retake control of Syria and put an end to the war). Secondly, because a new situation required an appropriate reaction.
Notice the intelligence of the guy: 1) He shows Assad that the fact that the POTUS wants his regime to survive does not mean he is free to do what he wants; 2) He kicks him in the balls, but does not cut his regime’s throat; 3) He clearly indicates that Assad’s regime will be helped to win the conflict, but Assad himself will have to make place – before or after dying – to a more reliable bastard; 4) He looks good. Yep, he just looks damn good in front of the entire Western world after 8 years of LGBT presidential effeminacy; 5) He gives a kick in the backside to all those Libtards who maintain he is in bed with Putin. And yes, let them say this is all a ruse. They will look even more lunatic than they do already. 6) Dulcis in fundo, he sends a very strong signal to Iran, China and North Korea: there is a new sheriff in town, and woe to the one who think he can mess with him.
If I were a US taxpayer I would not want my money and the life of US soldiers to be wasted on useless attempts to teach Muslims to avoid massacring each other, which is and will remain their favourite sport. But I would still want this money and those lives to be used to avoid genocides and use of weapons of mass destruction, and – not a bit less important – to be used to have reliable bastards in power in all places that counts. Ubi honor, ibi onus.
Lastly, the matter of Assad’s responsibility. I do not buy the theory of the faked attack, or of the plot to oust Assad himself. I trust Trump and the US intelligence enough not to be fooled, and to act only when they are reasonably sure of what has happened. It would be counterproductive for Trump if it became known that he was deceived. Please give him some credit, the man has shown already that he is very smart. I also have a certain allergy for conspiracy theories. Conspiracy theories are the best way to persuade oneself of the contrary of what reality shows.
The simplest explanation is the most credible: Assad became cocky once reasonably sure of the US support, and thought that he could afford the attack and strengthen his position inside the regime (you will have noticed that in the Arab culture the more ruthless you are, the more you are respected).
Assad is not fit to stay in power, is all. My pint goes on his side eventually winning the conflict with Russian and American help, and on Assad being removed, or killed, at some point during or soon after the end of it.
We need useful bastards to run Muslim Countries. But they must know when the West will draw a line in the sand.
Sons of dictators, who inherited power, are rarely as smart as their fathers who took it.
The exit polls I read around all indicate that Trump has won the Catholic vote (no, I am not talking of the judases with the same name, and may they sink in the irrelevance they richly deserved). If you ask me, the reason for this is not to be found in his (weak) homo stance, or in his defence of religious liberty and the consequence for Catholic organisations and religious orders in case of abolition of Obamacare. Whilst these factors probably played a role in some way, I do not think they were decisive. The decisive factor was, if you ask me, abortion.
Very bravely, Trump and Pence chose to “obsess” about abortion. In time, more and more tepid Catholics were forced to confront their conscience, and decide that the unborn child was more deserving of their vote than their wallet or their personal (dis)likings.
This seems to me to confirm a concept I have often expressed in the past: most Catholics are now like scattered sheep, unable and too lazy to follow their mediocre pastors. But at some level they still know what is what, and they know that truth can’t change. Once constantly confronted with the reality of Catholic teaching vigorously defended, slowly but surely many of them start to move in the right direction.
Catholicism is unique in this: that whoever start to defend it vocally does not have to reinvent or reshape anything. It is no novelty like a “New Labour” or “Reaganomics”, that must be developed, justified, tested. It’s there, beautifully immutable, ready for use and with no need of justification. You don’t have to persuade people that it works. It is enough to inform them that it exists. It is an all-encompassing, ready-to-use religious system with vast ramifications in the economic and social sphere. It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet read for use, and available for free.
Trump and Pence used the buffet, and took from it a big portion of abortion and a side of religious freedom and persecuted nuns. And it worked spectacularly well, because shattered as they are, enough sheep were smart enough to listen to the improbable shepherds rather than to the poppycock of the “glass ceiling” and the criminal lesbian witch thinking it is enough to cry “Vaginas of the world, unite!”.
Trump and Pence chose to do exactly what Pope Francis so despised: they “obsessed about abortion” with a frankness unthinkable for most political personnel only a decade or two ago, and not frequently found even among US bishops. They exposed the cowardice and complicity with the Enemy of Francis and his socialist ilk. They showed that when a couple of willing – if imperfect – pastors show up, the sheep start to respond pretty fast.
Shame on you, Francis, lewd promoter of everything that is evil. The Trump Train rode all over you, and millions of Catholics now realise what a phony you are.
Millions now realise that even a Donald Trump, with all his much-publicised shortcomings, is way more Catholic than the Pope.
I have read many a beautiful article from “Sundance” at the Conservative Treehouse (and I will always be grateful to him for the most intelligent guide and preparation to the November election I could find anywhere). But this here must be the best of them all. I invite you to not only read this passionate article in its entirety, but to make of this site a favourite of yours.
In days like this (after the nomination of Judge Gorsuch has been announced) I think with particular terror, and a very strong gratitude towards up above, to what would have happened if Hitlery had won.
It is not only that Scalia would have been replaced by some trannie liberal, a catastrophe in itself. It is very likely that Judge Ginsburg would now be resigning, too; preparing the ground for a double whammy of biblical proportions and aliberal domination of the Suprme Court for decades to come (the Astonishingly Ugly Dyke is merely 57!). Nor would a Senate majority polluted by RINOs have helped much, without the strong backing of a fiercely combative conservative President threatening annihilation of the Judases, and of a now victorious sane electorate ready to make every vote in the Senate count.
If Hitlery had won, we would now not be staring at a precipice, but plunging into it.
This is why I will never forget, nor forgive, all those Sanctimonious Judases of the #NeverTrump sort, who were perfectly willing to send the country (and with it, likely the West) to the dogs in order to show us how virtuous they are.
They chose to play Hitlery’s game then, they will be branded as Hitlery’s accomplices now. And no, I don’t care a straw if they are now applauding the candidate they have made everything possible to… make impossible. It is known that victory has many fathers.
Victory has also many bastards; and such they will remain.
I refuse I do not say to accept, but even to acknowledge the approval of these people to all the achievements with which Trump will bless his country in the next eight years. Their job now is to shut up, publicly repent, accept that they are called bastards and traitors (which is what they are, even if repentant), and hope to make for themselves, in many years of militancy, a new virginity.
But please, spare me the approval of oily opportunists ready to run to the help of the winner after they have done everything they could to plunge the country in its gravest crisis ever; condemning a generation of their own fellow citizen, and their very children, to the “fundamental transformation” Obama & Hitlery would have inflicted on them all.
They are no less Judases now than they were then. The only difference is that they have lost, and are now trying to recycle themselves as winners.
Judases, traitors and bastards now, just as in the first day of the #Never Trump hash tag.
We will not forget, and we will not forgive. Never again should it be allowed to this kind of people to betray their own side and hope to get away with it after the election.
Let this be an education for future political battles. It shall never happen again that such Judases think they can say “I told you so” if their side loses, and “we have won” if their side wins.
Traitors deserve to be spit in the face whether you win or lose after their treason.
