Jacinda Ardern Of New Zealand Or Donald Trump Of MAGA For The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize: You Decide.

Trump, as you may recall, has hinted that with the help of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe  he already has the lock on the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. As always, e.g., the Mueller report, he could be right.

But, Jacinda Ardern vs Trump. Talk about polar opposites.

But, as I just discovered there are quite a few nominations already — 301. One probably, already, is Trump.

I just read that they are even talking about my “ol’ buddy” Imran Khan for the Prize. That would be classic. Good ol’ Imran. Nothing that he can’t conquer. He is a good bloke.

So, what do YOU think? Trump or Ardern?

Let’s HOPE That Stabbing Of 77-Year Old Catholic Priest, In Montreal, Was Random, & UNRELATED To Child Sex Crimes.

When I saw this last night I was disturbed. I have a number of friends who are Catholic priests — one of them even an Archbishop.

This is not good. Any violence is bad, but attacks on priests and worshippers (as in New Zealand) seems even more egregious.

I really am hoping that this was a random attack with no real motive behind it.

But, I fret. The attacker is a 26-year old man. That worries me. Was he a victim of Catholic clergy sex crimes?

I know that there is a huge amount of frustration and resentment. The stupid pope just doesn’t get it. People are fed up. They have waited decades for justice and stupid Francis keeps on thumbing his nose at them — even as recently as last week.

What next? Armed guards at Catholic churches? Not good.

The stupid pope, Francis, really needs to do something meaningful to show that the Church cares.

Last weekend we had a local 11-year old shooting dead his adoptive parents. Now this. And prior to that New Zealand. It is all very sad. Violence based on religion drives me to despair! Why?

But, ….

I really, really wish that this stupid pope will resign.

Made my day.

She, Jacinda Ardern, so, so deserves all the kudos she gets. She has shown the world how real leaders act. Trump is too busy playing golf to notice.

Obviously the muslims appreciate her sincerity, commitment & compassion.

How GREAT for the whole world.

Terrible, uncalled for tragedy. Then, at least, you have moments like this.

Thank YOU, New Zealand.

Thank YOU, Jacinda Ardern.
