ROYAL WEDDING CELLIST
Reported by Karen Ann Carr

 

Sheku Kanneh-Mason, 19, played three songs for guests as Harry and Meghan signed the register.

Our teen aged musician Kanneh-Mason wowed the world and royal guests. The Royal Wedding was a wonderful event that I still have not gotten over. Yes, the entire event reminds me of myself. It displayed my dream wedding, after personal storms and tremendous losses. The weight of dear family members not being physically present accented the fact that a great company of witnesses, as saints, were watching with our Christ. As an architect, former event planner and flower arranging award winner the entire environment stimulated my soul. I could only imagine the aroma of the flowers. As a musician who once played the cello and piano I was awe-struck. As a person who loves to sing the range of music moves me to tears even now. Moreover, those who know me well are aware, I love being joyful. In fact, I have already requested being on the heavenly Joy Team when I leave this earth. I try to embody joy on earth without ingesting trans-formative substances. The tears being wiped away by our Prince as the Bishop spoke of the power of love on earth. The Royal Wedding continues to be earth transforming and bigotry shattering experience. On display was the goodness of our Lord God in the land of the living for this time and realm.

What is also interesting is the etiquette displayed. Everyone seemed to know not to applaud throughout the church wedding. Moreover, as an Episcopalian the service was reminiscent of my days with my sisters and parents at Calvary Episcopal Church when my great church members would sing, play instruments and proclaim the love of God. Needless to say, the entire wedding was the manifestation of my dream wedding. I could not be more joyful for the couple and their families. What accented the entire day was when the guest from, I guess Africa, began singing the song the words “Amen.’ That act took me back to east Africa where I was blessed to minister and be able to take sound equipment and measles cerium medicine for children. The missionary team had previously visited Uganda and told me of children in need of protection from measles. A mother mourned for her child at that time. I digressed, so when I heard the singing of Amen, it was like eating wonderful icing of an awesome cake.

The royal wedding cellist reminds me also of McKinley Technical High School in Washington DC, when my follow students majoring in music filled the hallways and assemblies with melodies. Others days they filled the stadiums with game winning marching tunes. We always however often needed to leave games early if they were held at off campus locations so no one would be attacked for attending our school. Kay Giles Gordon and Jackie Gist were a part of the illustrious musicians. Many were members of the DC Youth Orchestra. It was a wonderful time to be a Washingtonian. Then there was the marching music, reminiscent of music taught and played at Sousa junior high school assemblies. Who doesn’t enjoy an uplifting parade? I can only imagine the ecstasy of the food, the awesome reception, the desert wine and the off the hook late evening party enjoyed by all. Wonderfully lit fountains, accented with aroma pleasing flowers, swimming pools adding ambiances, the smiles, the joy and the happiness.

Well, I guess I will end my babbling here. You get my point. Love over-shadowed the royal wedding and beautiful clear weather was a blessing for all. They had apparently believed to see the goodness of the Lord Christ in the land of the living. I pray God continues to bless them all.

THE ROYAL WEDDING

OF

PRINCE HARRY & MEGHAN MARKLE

President Donald J. Trump Presents Remarks in a Bilateral Breakfast

Reported by Karen Ann Carr

 

NATO – President Donald J. Trump presents remarks at a Bilateral Breakfast with the Secretary General of NATO.

 

Remarks by President Trump and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at Bilateral Breakfast

Chief of Mission Residence
Brussels, Belgium

9:13 A.M. CEST

PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP: “Good morning, everybody. Good morning to the media — the legitimate media and the fake-news media. Good morning to them. A lot of good people here. Surprising.

QUESTION: “Mr. President, which countries did you want to spend more on NATO in particular?”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Just look at the chart. Take a look at the chart. It’s public. And many countries are not paying what they should. And, frankly, many countries owe us a tremendous amount of money for many years back, where they’re delinquent, as far as I’m concerned, because the United States has had to pay for them. So if you go back 10 or 20 years, you’ll just add it all up. It’s massive amounts of money is owed. The United States has paid and stepped up like nobody. This has gone on for decades, by the way. This has gone on for many Presidents. But no other President brought it up like I bring it up. So something has to be done, and the Secretary General has been working on it very hard.

This year, since our last meeting, commitments have been made for over $40 billion more money spent by other countries. So that’s a step, but it’s a very small step. It sounds like a lot of money, and it is. But it’s a very small amount of money relative to what they owe and to what they should be paying. And it’s an unfair burden on the United States.

So we’re here to talk about that, and I’m sure it will be resolved. I have great confidence in the Secretary General. He’s worked very, very hard on this, and he knows it’s a fact. But I have great confidence in him and his representatives.

You going to say something?”

 

SECRETARY GENERAL STOLTENBERG: “First of all, it’s great to see you again, Mr. President. And good to have you here for a summit. And we are going to discuss many important issues at the summit. Among them is defense spending. And we all agree that we have to do more. I agree with you that we have to do make sure that our allies are investing more. The good news is that allies have started to invest more in defense.

After years of cutting defense budgets, they have started to add billions to their defense budgets. And last year was the biggest increase in defense spending across Europe and Canada in that generation.”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Why was that last year?”

SECRETARY GENERAL STOLTENBERG: “It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message. And —”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “They won’t write that, but that’s okay.”

SECRETARY GENERAL STOLTENBERG: “No, I have said it before, but the thing is that it really has. And your message is having an impact, and we are going to build on that to make sure that we have further increases. You initiated last year that all allies are going to develop national plans on how to spend more on defense. And based on these national plans, we now estimate that European allies and Canada will add 266 extra U.S. dollars for defense from now until — billion U.S. dollars — until 2024.

So this is really adding some extra momentum. It helps and we are moving in the right direction. But we still have to do more, and that is what we’re going to address after the summit later on today.

Let me also add that a strong NATO is good for Europe and it’s also good for the United States. The U.S. (inaudible) presence in Europe helps to protect Europe, but it also helps the United States project power to the Middle East, to Africa. And I think also that clout — the military clout of Europe, economic clout, the political clout — also is helpful dealing with Russia. And we look forward to the meeting you’re going to have with President Putin. And I think that leaders are also looking forward to your thoughts about the meeting with President Putin later on.”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Well, I have to say, I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia. So we’re protecting Germany. We’re protecting France. We’re protecting all of these countries. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia, where they’re paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia.

So we’re protect you against Russia, but they’re paying billions of dollars to Russia, and I think that’s very inappropriate. And the former Chancellor of Germany is the head of the pipeline company that’s supplying the gas. Ultimately, Germany will have almost 70 percent of their country controlled by Russia with natural gas.

So you tell me, is that appropriate? I mean, I’ve been complaining about this from the time I got in. It should have never been allowed to have happened. But Germany is totally controlled by Russia, because they will be getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline. And you tell me if that’s appropriate, because I think it’s not, and I think it’s a very bad thing for NATO and I don’t think it should have happened. And I think we have to talk to Germany about it.

On top of that, Germany is just paying a little bit over 1 percent, whereas the United States, in actual numbers, is paying 4.2 percent of a much larger GDP. So I think that’s inappropriate also. You know, we’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France. We’re protecting everybody. And yet we’re paying a lot of money to protect.

Now, this has been going on for decades. This has been brought up by other presidents. But other presidents never did anything about it because I don’t think they understood it or they just didn’t want to get involved.

But I have to bring it up, because I think it’s very unfair to our country. It’s very unfair to our taxpayer. And I think that these countries have to step it up not over a 10-year period; they have to step it up immediately. Germany is a rich country. They talk about they’re going to increase it a tiny bit by 2030. Well, they could increase it immediately tomorrow and have no problem. I don’t think it’s fair to the United States.

So we’re going to have to do something because we’re not going to put up with it. We can’t put up with it. And it’s inappropriate.

So we have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars that’s being paid to the country that we’re supposed to be protecting you against. You know, everybody is talking about it all over the world. They’ll say, well, wait a minute, we’re supposed to be protecting you from Russia, but why are you paying billions of dollars to Russia for energy? Why are countries in NATO, namely Germany, having a large percentage of their energy needs paid to Russia and taken care of by Russia?

Now, if you look at it, Germany is a captive of Russia because they supply. They got rid of their coal plants. They got rid of their nuclear. They’re getting so much of the oil and gas from Russia. I think it’s something that NATO has to look at. I think it’s very inappropriate. You and I agree that it’s inappropriate. I don’t know what you can do about it now, but it certainly doesn’t seem to make sense that they paid billions of dollars to Russia and now we have to defend them against Russia.”

 

SECRETARY GENERAL STOLTENBERG: “You know, NATO is an alliance of 29 nations, and there are sometimes differences and different views, and also some disagreements. And the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany is one issue where allies disagree. But the strength of NATO is that despite these differences, we have always been able to unite around our core task, to protect and defend each other, because we understand that we are stronger together than apart.

I think that two World Wars and the Cold War taught us that we are stronger together than apart.”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “But how can you be together when a country is getting its energy from the person you want protection against or from the group that you want protection?”

 

SECRETARY GENERAL STOLTENBERG: “Because we understand that when we stand together, also in dealing with Russia, we are stronger. I think what we have seen is that —”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “No, you’re just making Russia richer. You’re not dealing with Russia. You’re making Russia richer.”

 

SECRETARY GENERAL STOLTENBERG: “Well, I think that even during the Cold War, NATO Allies were trading with Russia, and then there have been disagreements about what kind of trade arrangements we should (Inaudible).”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “I think trade is wonderful. I think energy is a whole different story. I think energy is a much different story than normal trade. And you have a country like Poland that won’t accept the gas. You take a look at some of the countries — they won’t accept it, because they don’t want to be captive to Russia. But Germany, as far as I’m concerned, is captive to Russia, because it’s getting so much of its energy from Russia. So we’re supposed to protect Germany, but they’re getting their energy from Russia. Explain that. And it can’t be explained — you know that.

Thank you.”

 

QUESTION: “What are the consequences if they don’t spend more, Mr. President?”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “They will spend more. I have great confidence that they’ll spend more. I have great confidence.”

 

QUESTION: “Mr. President, does something have to change on trade for you to keep your troop levels in Europe?”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “I have great confidence that they will be spending more money, as they should be.”

 

QUESTION: “Mr. President, why is it (Inaudible.) spend 10 times more than Russia for defense? Why is it necessary to spend 10 times more money on defense (Inaudible.)? You are a businessman.”

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “It’s a shame they made that deal. Too bad. It’s too bad. Thank you.”

We also briefly touched upon the upcoming trips of the President. And let me say that I’m very much looking forward to further extending our exchanges in the future and enhancing them. I think they’re very important to have those exchanges together. Because after all, we are partners, we are good partners, and we wish to continue to cooperate in the future.”

QUESTION: “Did you discuss the gas pipeline?”

Thank you. Thank you very much.
