 General Qasem Soleimani was the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' elite Quds Force

Qasem Soleimani

The U.S. Senate will not remove President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial. Still, his presidency will be forever marred by the impeachment and that offends his narcissistic sensibilities. He could not do anything about it. What he could do was create a diversion which he could control. Hence, the January 3 assassination of Iran’s top military commander, Qasem Soleimani.

Now the president has complete control of the narrative, especially since no whistleblower is expected to contradict his claim that Soleimani posed such an imminent threat that he had to be killed in a third, friendly, country. The problem, though, is how Iran will retaliate. To understand what is likely to happen, it is important to look at the history of U.S.-Iran relations.            Continue reading

Trump Should Be Removed From Office – Mark Galli | Christianity Today

It’s tme to say what we said 20 years ago when a president’s character was revealed for what it was.

Mark Galli | Christianity Today

In our founding documents, Billy Graham explains that Christianity Today [CT] will help evangelical Christians interpret the news in a manner that reflects their faith. The impeachment of Donald Trump is a significant event in the story of our republic. It requires comment.

The typical CT approach is to stay above the fray and allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square, to encourage all to pursue justice according to their convictions and treat their political opposition as charitably as possible.          Continue reading
