Oprah’s spiritual advisor and ‘b*tch for God’ is running for president

Published

on

As the 2020 Presidential election approaches, the field of would-be challengers to President Donald Trump gets more crowded with untraditional candidates.

Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks, recently grabbed headlines with his pledge to challenge Trump from a centrist perspective.

But a lesser known candidate also announced her candidacy Monday night: Marianne Williamson, Oprah’s spiritual advisor and self-professed “bitch for God.”

Writing in Vox, E.J. Dickson describes Williamson’s announcement.

“Our national challenges are deep, but our political conversation is shallow,” Williamson said. “My campaign is for people who want to dig deeper into the questions we face as a nation and deeper into finding the answers.” She announced her candidacy at the Saban Theater in Los Angeles, California.

“She may have next to no shot at taking the White House, but as spiritual gurus exert more and more influence over American life, she’s worth understanding,” Dickson writes.

“It is time for us to rise up, the way other generations have risen up,” Williamson said in her speech as a crowd of her acolytes roared.”

For years, freshman Democratic lawmakers have faced pressure to attend an AIPAC sponsored trip to Israel, where they were denied access to Gaza and other territories controlled by Israel.

The pressure remains stronger than ever today, reports The Intercept, even as Israel's mideast policy is increasingly questioned.

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) assured AIPAC that this year the trip would be as well attended as it has been previously. “Like many of you, I’ve traveled to the communities in the south of Israel that have endured rockets and tunnels. I’ve traveled with over 150 of my fellow Democratic members of Congress to meet with those who live under the constant threat of terror,” he said in an April address to AIPAC.

Trump leveled by retired general for making Iran war decisions based on advice from Fox News hosts

Published

During a panel discussion on the increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran after a drone was shot down by the Middle Eastern country in international airspace, a retired general claimed he was worried about Donald Trump's response based upon who it appears the president listens to when it comes to advice.

Speaking with host John Berman, retired Lt. General Mark Hertling warned that the shootdown was a dangerous provocation.

"It's huge, John," Hertling explained. "You can go all the way from backing down completely to a full-scale war -- that's what's dangerous about this situation."
