Trump Tosses Bone To Christian Right, But At What Cost?

President Trump again shows us that he is a master of deal making. He signed a bill that seems to reduce Planned Parenthood’s funding, which will help cement to Trump the support of the Zionist wing of Christians Evangelicalism.  And, he did it at the very time he has taken selective killing into his own hands in bombing our one time ally, Syria. And he did so without Congressional mandate or approval.  Less anyone doubt, we are allies because the US is supposedly fighting to keep ISIS under control, as does Assad’s government.  

Mr Trump expects the Zionist wing of Christianity to support his war policy without question, even the killing of an unknown number (thought to be thus far less then 10) of Syrians Military personnel in the US bombing of a Syrian airfield in April.  At least two previous US bombings have killed Syrian civilians, including a March 2017 drone attack on a mosque.  Note that the Zionist wing of the Protestant church was Trumps key support base that tipped his election. According to the Pew Foundation polls some 81% of this large group voted for Trump!  The Christian Zionists paradox is that they are bitterly opposed to the practice of abortion, therefore, they tend to despise Planned Parenthood. But the Christian Zionist group has generally supported all out war in the Middle East without regard or concern for the death cost to the innocent…pro-life, but not pro-peace as the Christian bible demands!  Mr Trump knows it. – Editor CEC

Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls.”

“Prioritizing funding away from Planned Parenthood to comprehensive health care alternatives is a winning issue,” said Dannenfelser. She thanked “the women who led this effort in Congress, Rep.
