The documentary, which debuts on Netflix on August 21, never mentions President Donald Trump by nameābut its message is clear: Trumpās promise to reinvigorate the industrial heartland is going to take a lot more than a campaign slogan. There are no easy solutions. And if some manufacturing jobs do come back, theyāre going to look nothing like they used to. Americans will have to accept a new reality to stay competitive in the global marketplaceāone that they might not like, and one that Trump doesnāt acknowledge....

I would say the movie was just as much about the dubious advantages of having a Chinese company taking over an American one instead of the United States bringing higher standards of living to the Chinese. more like the Chinese bringing lower standards of living to the United Statesāš

Zak Doffman wrote: Early on Monday [August 19], I reported that China has been paying Twitter to promote state propaganda against pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. The same has been true on Facebook, where multiple state-controlled accounts have peddled the same messages. By the end of the day, both social media giants had acted to suspend numerous accounts linked to "disinformation," essentially Chinese state propaganda.... .... In my initial report, I suggested that what Twitter (and Facebook) does next will be watched with interestāit is clear that promoted tweets from state media outlets at times of popular unrest go to the very heart of the free speech versus propaganda debate. Well, they have acted and the question has been answered....

Emma Green wrote: The writer Ben Howe grew up in the world of conservative evangelicalism. When he looks at the religious right now, all he sees is a thirst for power and domination....
Green: Something I noticed throughout our conversation is that youāve struggled a lot with pronouns: we and they.
Green: Are you an evangelical?
Howe: I am.
Green: So why they?
Howe: Because when Iām saying they, Iām talking about people who support Trump in the way Iām criticizing.
Green: Are you a conservative?
Howe: ... but I guess thatās why Iām saying my language sounds fluid. At some point Iāve got to accept that what I think āconservativeā is is not what others think it is. Iām a little more protective of the word evangelical because I think evangelize is a good and important word and I donāt want it to be taken away. But conservatism was called other things in the past, āclassical liberalismā and things like that. So sometimes I call myself a libertarian, sometimes I call myself a conservatarian, and then eventually I go, āOh, who needs labels.ā

āNot only do we have radio-carbon dating that demonstrates the antiquity of the samples, but we also have stratigraphic evidence,ā Masters said. āThese samples come from carefully-excavated contexts, connected to artifacts that can be precisely dated.ā
archaeologists uncovered the first Philistine cemetery. From those graves, researchers successfully recovered genomic data from the remains of 10 individuals who lived in Ashkelon during the Bronze and Iron ages. This data allowed the team to compare the DNA of the Bronze and Iron Age people of Ashkelon to determine how they were related. The researchers found that individuals across all time periods derived most of their ancestry from the local Levantine gene pool, but that individuals who lived in early Iron Age Ashkelon had a European-derived ancestral component that was not present in their Bronze Age predecessors.....

Neil, David Brooks, the New York columnist is a Protestant besides being a Republican . He certainly made it plain that he thought President Trump was a racist. You can look at the PBS transcript for Shields and Brooks of August 2nd, https://tinyurl.com/y2mvhy97 just look up "tropes"ā
I would have gone for a more lengthy quote, but I think I've used it in another thread and some users get very upset when I do it more than once.
So David Brooks thinks he's a racist, but Trump is an actuator, even if one couldn't find a racial bone in his body ā https://tinyurl.com/y3e87jrb ("'No Blame?' ABC News finds 36 cases invoking 'Trump' in connection with violence, threats, alleged assaults.")

American Tract Dictionary 1859 wrote: FORNICATION:
Is a criminal connection between persons who are engaged, one or both, to keep themselves wholly to [from] others; and thus it exceeds the guilt of fornication, which is the same intercourse between unmarried persons. As the highest sin of its kind, and ... including all other sins of the flesh, it is forbidden in the seventh commandment. ... illicit intercourse between a married man and a woman who was married, nor betrothed, constituted not adultery, but fornication. Fornication may be, in some sense, covered by a subsequent marriage of the parties; but adultery cannot be so healed.
Neil, I have to somewhat agree with you. Unfortunately these types are made untouchable by rich people who want them as pastors, and have the money to bribe a church congregation.

The New American has written a rather poorly done work of fiction. They don't give any accurate references to back up their story.
By the way opinion writers in the New York Times have call Trump racist more than onceā for example:
David Leonhardt wrote: .... No one except Trump can know what Trumpās private thoughts or motivations are. But the public record and his behavior are now abundantly clear. Donald Trump treats black people and Latinos differently than he treats white people.
And that makes him a racist....

Now this article is written at the beginning of 2018, there was probably an earlier one I think 2016 for instance. I assume that New York Times writers read other articles from other sources such as, the first White president in Atlantic Monthly?
I think it should been rather obvious through the years, the New York Times was no fan of Donald Trumpāš

Apostle Boyd K. Packer explained, āThe Word of Wisdom put restrictions on members of the Church. To this day those regulations apply to every member and to everyone who seeks to join the Church. They are so compelling that no one is to be baptized into the Church without first agreeing to live by them. No one will be called to teach or to lead unless they accept them. When you want to go to the temple, you will be asked if you keep the Word of Wisdom. If you do not, you cannot go to the house of the Lord until you are fully worthyā (āThe Word of Wisdom: The Principles and the Promise,ā Ensign (Conference Edition), May 1996, p. 17).
