Climate-change plot

The G20 Summit allowed President Donald Trump to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Chinese President Xi Jinping and other world leaders. Merkel’s main goal for the summit was for the leaders to contribute to solving the world’s problems, such as climate change. According to Xi, the way to do that is to open a world economy through a “multilateral trade regime,” otherwise known as world governance, that will trample our rights and freedoms, increase our taxes and take control of America’s energy use.

He was accused of making and selling herbal products that were not adequately labeled. He was tried by a judge and jury and sentenced to six years in prison.

Don’t see the connection

I have no problem with people who say they know there is no God, though I suspect Sherlock Holmes would say they’re theorizing ahead of their data. But I was puzzled and dismayed by a recent Ark Encounter protest during which members of Tri-State Freethinkers held up placards supporting Planned Parenthood. That seemed irrelevant.
