Trump aims his ire at spouses, children of judges at heart of legal troubles


Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts

But the former president himself has not held back from aiming his ire at the families of his perceived foes across numerous legal battles, targeting the spouses and children of judges overseeing his cases. Trump’s latest mark is the daughter of Judge Juan Merchan, the New York state judge overseeing the former president’s criminal trial linked to hush money payments made to a porn actress to cover up an alleged affair ahead of the 2016 election. Trump faces 34 counts and has pleaded not guilty.

And yet … has not the Orange Messiah done the things of which he has been accused? No matter how partisan the commentator, the comments are true.

Good question. Did el naranja hombre do the things of which he has been accused? Isn't that what a trial is for?

Just because a judge chooses to impose it does not mean it cannot be resisted.  Trump will likely push far enough to cause them to try to arrest him.  If he does, THAT should be very interesting to watch unfold.

Nah, I support the man because he's the only thing standing between America and a crowd of pure evildoers that effectively send the signal that they are more concerned with "Trans visibility day" than with honoring Christ's sacrifice.  That move today was sickening and patently obvious.  The only positive I see in any of what the Left is doing these days is that when Russia or the CCP - or maybe Iran or the Norks - finally get around to vaporizing our nation, we will be without excuse for the judgment it causes.

I was just reading about how nuclear attacks are pretty much going to happen eventually but I think kissing up to Putin and abandoning NATO is a big mistake. Trump may think he's a better dictator but he's not.

So someone with enough money to hire the best team of lawyers  cannot fight the charges  based on evidence and the laws?  Like a mobster they must threaten and attack families?  That is your standard?

How do threats to a family make your cause  just?  Is that really the standard you aspire to for America?  .  Do you want that to spread?  Think of the good folks trying to do right in the world by adopting Chinese orphans and bringing them back to the US to raise as Americans.  Now they might be accused of being Chinese agents and  spies. Will they be deported or just face the threat of being beat up by a MAGA mob on the street?

Instead of being grateful and joyful at the gift you are given, MAGA is angry and filled with rage by those who do not accept it?  Everybody gets a choice.  You may not know this, but we were given Free Will.  Maybe omniscience  can see the wisdom in a long path that some humans fail to see. MAGA seems so HAPPY to see us all destroyed.  Everything they love and cherish and respect sacrificed to punish somebody they hate so much, they cannot understand or forgive   Real Christian values there.

Trump is trying to get his ass thrown in jail, thinking that will make more people support him in the election.

Trans people are real.  Christ wasn't.

The Gospels were written 98 to about 140 years after the events they purport to describe.  How accurate can they be?

Mark was written circa AD70, about 40 years after the events. John is the most recent of the canonical texts and can be dated to circa AD 125. Jesus lived around AD 30, so the gospels are closer to 40-100 years after the events! And that's before we even consider the potential for a Q document on which Mark was based.  Such a Q document would likely be traced to around AD 50, though there are no extant copies today.

"Q" Matthew, not Mark which contained just the teachings not found in Mark. Only in Matthew and Luke.

If Q exists, it can likely be traced to 50 AD, this isn't the Spirituality section so arguing exactly what Q encompasses isn't really the point. The broader point is that the dates between Jesus' alleged life and the writings about his life are not "98-140 years after the events they purport to describe"

If Q existed it was only a book of sayings/teachings with no biographical information and those teachings might not even be Jesus's. It could  be a Therapeutae or Essene book.

Nevertheless, it's much closer than "98-140 years", which is an outrageous extreme view held by only a minority of fringe historians. It's ok to believe fringe historians, but don't pretend that they are the mainstream, or that they represent the scholarly consensus in any way.

He doesn't realize how easily it could backfire on him. For someone who supposedly values his freedums, he's woefully ignorant of the fact that the only freedums Trump will protect are his only. Everyone else would be under his thumb, including and-then.

I think you have it wrong.

The Apocalypse of Mark and the Apocalypse of Matthew mention an "abomination in a high place."  What high places are there in Jerusalem?  How about Temple Mount?

When was there an "abomination" on Temple Mount?  The Roman Tenth Legion built a Temple to Jupiter on Temple Mount, honoring a pledge to Jerusalem's Jews to rebuild the temple (They never said which temple they would build.).  The Tenth Legion's symbol was a boar's head.  They placed a statue of a boar's head along with one of the Roman governor in front of the Temple to Jupiter.  The message was "You are a conquered people:  don't forget it."  Jews consider the pig to be unclean, so a statue of one on their most holy place was an "abomination."  When did this happen? The Temple to Jupiter was built in 119 AD and destroyed during the Bar Kochba Rebellion about 131-133 AD.  So sometime between 119 and 131.

Aristitides of Athens wrote a defense of Christianity which he presented to Hadrian about 125 AD.  He never once mentioned any of the gospels.  Why do you write a defense of Christianity without mentioning the gospels?  Maybe it's because they don't exist.

Marcion was excommunicated in 144 AD for having written his own Bible, a modification of Luke (Or was Luke a modification of Marcion?).  That's fairly good evidence that Luke existed about 140 AD.  There is no earlier mention of it.

Irenaeus of Lyon in Book I of Against Heresies, mentions a book by Matthew.  There's no indication that it was the Gospel of Matthew as we know it, but in Book III, written about 183 AD, he mentions the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  That's pretty solid evidence that the gospels existed in 183 AD.  There is no evidence that any of them existed earlier.

There is a fragment describing a man's hazing.  The person is draped in a purple robe (blood stains?) and a sign saying "King of the Jews" was hung around his neck while the mob tormented him.  This happened in 41 AD in Alexandria when Herod was visiting after a trip to Rome.  It was written by Philo of Alexandria, brother of Herod's chief tax collector (who donated the gold for the sign over the door of the temple).  Philo never mentioned anybody named Jesus.  The tormented man was named Carabbas.  Change the C to a B and you have Barabbas - "Son of the Father - who was co-crucified with Jesus in the Gospel story.  "Son of the Father" and "Son of God" on crosses on the same hill at the same time.  What are the odds?

The Book of Mark contains 678 verses.  Without Philo's 12 verses, there are 666.

 

The gospel stories are written in the format of a Roman-play-within-a-play.  A Bible story written in Greek, but using a Roman format?  Who would do such a thing?  Cicero was a Roman orator and statesman (He was a stutterer like Joe Biden.).  He was fluent in Greek and studied eastern religions as a hobby.  Could Cicero be the author of the Gospels?

 

The Q document has never been shown to have existed.  In order for Matthew (which is longer) to be derived from Mark (which is shorter), you have to have another source document.  So you assume one.  That is bad scholarship in the extreme.

Take it up with the scholars. I'm no longer a Christian and have no dog in the fight. The scholars have dated the gospel of Mark to roughly the destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem in AD 70. Possibly a few years later, but not by many. The other synoptic gospels (Matthew and Luke) are both dated to the first century AD. Only the Gospel of John has a likely 2nd Century dating, and that is likely only the early part of the second century (edit: to cover myself, the latter dating of Luke might put it into the early years of the second century, but not by much). 

As I said in my last post, it's ok to have a minority view of history. But don't present it like it's the mainstream academic view without acknowledging its flaws and lack of support among scholarly historians. The atheists studying this field are equally agreed on these dates - I'm providing sound academic scholarship dates, not Biblical propaganda. If you want biblical propaganda as argued by extreme biblical apologists, Mark was written by AD 50, and John was finished before the destruction of the Temple in AD 70. These dates that I presented represent scholarly consensus. Take it up with them if you disagree, I really don't have the time or energy to put into it. 

This website is a scholarly look at the dating of early Christian writings, it's worth a look if you haven't before.

Still on your predictions of doom if BOM can't bully and threaten his way into what he wants.

Well, in 2020 iirc BOM was fairly given the boot by the American people he tried to cheat out of voting he then stirred his more minionish subjects into a failed insurrection and those who followed his wishes are where now?

I guess that example will show his subjects. Hey BOM has your back,

If BOM causes his own arrest it will take place even if he's hauled off to the hoiscow baby tantrum style because he's not above the law and Americans were not and are not scared of him.

BOMs go to has always been the threat, the bullying tantrum, the predictions of doom if he doesn't get his way, worked very well 2020.

Please forgive if I mistook the next part of your reply, I really doubt BOM or any of his subjects would ever consider adopting a non white foreign child especially Asian I would fear for the child if they did.
