"In this and like communities, public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed. Consequently, he who molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions." -- Abraham Lincoln

Hollywood filmmaker-actor Rob Reiner is taking aim at Christians who support former President Donald Trump, saying he doesn’t understand how anyone who believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ could vote for Trump.

Rob Reiner fired off his salvo in an X post on Tuesday.

“Jesus told us to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. How in God’s name can anyone who believes in the teachings of Jesus support Donald Trump?” he wrote.

Claire's Observations:  Mr. Reiner, a word, please. First,  let me introduce myself.  I am Claire Rivero, a college-educated Christian activist-pacifist, and one of your, and the DNC's worst nightmares. There are many things about Don Trump which absolutely drive me around the bend,. as our British cousins would say, but given the alternative of a second Biden administration, there are many reasons I would support Trump coming back into the office of the President in a heartbeat.

1. The USA has no functional Southern Border; it has absolutely been destroyed by Biden';s policies.    These illegal immigrants tend to be illiterate, even in the languages of their home countries;  innumerate; and with no useful job skills whatsoever, except for casual labor, which is more and more handled by IT, to the point where casual labor is nearly irrelevant. They also have a belief that the Federal Government will take care of them, from cradle to grave.  Because of insanely erratic health screening, with  Border Agents so completely overwhelmed, diseases which were thought to have been eradicated in this country, have resurfaced, and with a  vengeance.

2. Russia and China have "dumped" the dollar as a mechanism in their trade, and so have many of the BRIC nations;  one has to speculate, as to how soon the US dollar will die an ignominious death, because of this.  As much as I hate to say it, but when Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origins, the guy said the quiet part out loud. Have you noticed, sir, how how the media  in this country are  screechingly advocating for wars against Russia  China Iran and the Middle East?!?  This is an historic tendency in this country.  When it gets into a really awful financial fix, war is seen as "the way out" of the mess.  However,at this point in world history, there are many nuclear-armed countries on the planet, including Israel, Pakistan, India, China, and Russia.  And right now, sir, I challenge you as to how in the world the US would win such a war; we don't have the troop strength; the money; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to prevail. I would appreciate any alternating viewpoint you could possibly offer here.

But I do have a very reasonable proposal for you, based on what you have said in this article, and also for for George Soros; Resident Biden; and  Mark Zuckerberg; all illegal immigrants should be very gently "air-dropped"on all properties you all own, and you will be responsible for their lives; sustenance; and education, right up to their deaths. Do collectively, make us proud  Mr. Reiner; we're counting on you, and your cadre of elites to do this!!   What?!?!?  No interest, whatsoever?!?  WOW; this is a "reality bites" moment for the American people!!!!
