Turns out that even becoming a billionaire doesn’t always mean you’ve outgrown mundane junior-high cattiness.

We’ve all known that one guy (or girl) who tries to pretend they’re not sabotaging someone when it’s obvious that they are.

It’s often framed something like this. ‘I don’t want to say so-and-so is [negative trait x] but… ‘

Read this post by Bezos and ask yourself if that’s not exactly what we’re looking at in his tweet.

Take special note of the lag of several hours between when JB throws the accusation out there and lets it fester … before eventually reeling it back in with what looks like some kind of a half-assed attempt at blunting the force of his original statement.

And for complete context, because we’re not lying scumbags, here’s the follow-up from the latter tweet.

Raising the topic of Chinese leverage over American businesses may not have been the smartest play for someone in Jeff Bezos’ particular set of circumstances.

What happened between Jeff’s first tweet and the follow-up ones?
Simple: he got torched.

Some examples…

As for the question raised about WaPo and Chinese Propaganda? Lest you think it’s a one-off, here’s a websearch of those terms brings up some interesting hits over a very long timeline:

Western Journal, December, 2019: Investigator Exposes NYT, WaPo for Publishing Chinese Propaganda for Cash

TownHall, July 2020: Yeah, That’s Why WaPo Ran a Chinese Propaganda Piece About Wuhan Native Who Got COVID in Florida

Even WaPo itself said the quiet part out loud in 2021: Pro-China propaganda campaign exploits U.S. divisions in videos emphasizing Capitol attack

I’m pretty sure WaPo hasn’t bothered to return the Pulitzer they got for running the hell out of that bogus Russian Collusion story, either.

When they said ‘democracy dies in darkness’, they failed to specify that they would be responsible for providing the shade.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
