Ukraine Air Brushed Out of UN Church of the Powerful But Big Lower Down Amid Leissner & Larry Ray Lies

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPNReview

BACK PEW, March 13 -- The Weasel of Wall Street Tim Leissner had twice converted to Islam, he said, in order to marry or promise to marry women. This had emerged under cross examination in the EDNY trial by Roger Ng's lawyer. Now the media still out there were mulling it over. What would the jury think?

   For Kurt the question was why would the supervisor, Leissner, get a cooperator's deal to turn on his subordinate? Why should the strong be compensated by the government to go against the weak(er)? Of course, Ng was hardly without resources. But comparatively it made no sense.

   It being a Sunday, and Kurt being a former Catholic Worker - once a Catholic Worker, always a Catholic Worker, Dorothy Day might have said -- he decided to go to church. He sat near the back, looking at the Stations of the Cross statues along the walls and half listening to the sermon, something about "just being there," just being "present."

Was that enough? It was not his approach. In fact, he'd blown up the opportunity to just be present, for example in the UN, by what he used his ability to be present to do. They then revoked it.

  But to his surprise a woman speaking from the front, obviously not the priest (it being a Catholic church) but some sort of Diocese big-wig, starting talking about Ukraine. She said to pray for the victims of the war, a word that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres had ordered his staff not to say.

Rather than praying for the withered soul of Guterres, whom she had probably never heard of (and Big Tony liked it like that), she said to pray for politicians, economists and members of the media, may they help bring an end of this war and invasion.

  Kurt, being a member of the media, when he left the service went to a pizzeria with free wi-fi and checked to see if the church near the UN even mentioned Ukraine on its website. It did not, of course. It was a very selective religion over there, a religion of the powerful.

Once soon after he was thrown out of the UN he had stood live-streaming in front of that church on 47th Street, on the day they gave their blessing to the world leaders so-called visiting for the General Assembly week, dictators most of them. Kurt had shouted at the Nigeria delegation, What about Nnamdi Kano? They had ignored him, and UN Security had come over and pushed him back. Very Biblical, all of it.

  As to ongoing SDNY trial of sex cultist Larry Ray, the question had arisen whether the kids had fallen into his sway because they lacked religion. Or wasn't he selling them the sort of certainty and sense of community that religion seemed to provide to some?

Tim Leissner and Jho Low had gamed this feeling, along with the supposedly religious UAE, and the UN had kept the money. The missing children of Sarah Lawrence, as The Cut had called them, had fallen prey to that feeling, or been preyed on because of it. Cycles of abuse, just like in (some parts) of the Church. #TheWeaselsOfWallStreet

 Kurt had first heard of Jho Low while still in the UN, before he was thrown out. Jho Low appeared at a UN press conference in front of the ubiquitous and now defiled logo. #TheWeaselOfWallStreet, 1st in a new series
