I know that in the year of our Lord 2021, it hardly makes much sense to talk about Hillary Clinton, or even mention her in a title, but there is at least one thing which she and Trump have in common: they both have been betrayed by those around them.
Now, that’s not to say that I feel badly for Hillary as a result. She’s every bit the swamp rat that the people who betrayed her are. The way in which Hillary and Trump were betrayed are noticeably different.
Hillary was betrayed at different times for different reasons. Her own husband cheated on her numerous times, some of which were not in consensual relations, and betrayed his marriage vows with her. Her party betrayed her when they believed a slick, young African-American guy from Illinois would be a better leader and president for them than she would (though Obama did wreck the Democrat party after he took office). And her latest stint at running for office was only given to her because some in the DNC believed it was just “her time” to basically be coronated. Even then, the party betrayed her by not taking Trump seriously and not doing enough cheating for her (despite how much they actually did try to cheat).
President Trump, in turn, has been betrayed by a plethora of people around him, both people whom he has misguidedly chosen as part of his cabinet and people who are/were elected representatives who cozied up to the man for the clout and the money, only to turn their backs on him when the best opportunity came about.
And after the Capitol riot, even some who used to call themselves “MAGA” turned against him, choosing to side with those whom have betrayed him in an appeal to seem “in favor of law enforcement.”
Now, there are plenty of theories out there regarding the riots: namely that they were either instigated by Antifa or that the entire thing was allowed to occur by Capitol police, or some combination of just about everything. Me? I have seen videos that suggest it was a set up and videos which suggest it was real and organic. Antifa was definitely there and dressed as Trump supporters (pro-Trump rallies and protests often are met with Antifa counter-protesters but this one somehow wasn't?), but it’s hard to say just how much of a presence they had.
What I do know is that, if these were Trump supporters for the most part, I can understand why they did what they did. Generally, I think rioting is wrong, but after an entire summer of Leftists being allowed to do considerably worse to innocent people, I don’t blame the real Trump supporters that were there for doing what they did.
Throughout the summer, I saw small businesses being either looted, destroyed, burned, or some combination of the three. Wednesday, all I saw was the Swamp being swarmed. I only feel sorry for those who have been physically hurt, however many they are, and for those who may have been killed (theories suggest no one was killed and it was part of the set-up, but erring on the side of caution and grace, I will, until evidence to the contrary totally refutes me, assume that people did die). But I don’t feel sorry for the elites who were scared.
I don’t feel sorry for Mitt Romney getting so shaken up. I don’t feel sorry for the politicians who were scared here who cheered and incited the riots that occurred over the summer. I don’t feel sorry for the swamp rats which have conspired to steal our election and our country. I don’t feel sorry for the establishment rats who believe they are superior to us and who believe they ought to rule us. In my mind, they got a taste of what they deserve.
If anything, the only downside to that riot (apart from the physical damage to people, of course) is that it will embolden these people and give them ammo for ruling us with an iron fist. However, it’s not like they didn’t intend on doing so to begin with. They are thirsty for power, which is why they wrestled it away from us in this election in the manner in which they did. The riots may give them a scapegoat as to why they will do what they will do, but these sick bastards would have done those things riot or no riot.
Still, those who have the mind to it will take whatever opportunity they can from this. The communist bastards will use this opportunity to rule us harshly. The peacetime conservatives who were still among us will use this opportunity to distance themselves from Trump and Trumpism, in the hopes of still having some social presence. The establishment RINOs who were openly against Trump from the beginning will use it to validate and justify their positions. That Romney yelled at Cruz as they were fleeing the Senate floor about how “this is what you have wrought” or something like that is an indication that he feels validated for his beliefs.
On the flipside, there are also those of us who will get a clearer picture as to how to proceed and what kind of people to lead us and surround ourselves with. For example, there is Leo Terrell, who used to be a Democrat and voted for Trump in 2020 solely because of Trump, not the GOP at any capacity. He tweeted a lot on Wednesday, among which is the declaration that: “I will never support any Republican or any candidate who betrayed president Donald J Trump.”
Those of us who are loyal to Trump will remain loyal to him and his populist conservatism, wherever that may lead.
I am no longer of the belief that Trump will serve a second term, but that may be for the best for him. I could hardly imagine being betrayed so many times by so many people in one term and recognize that that was just ONE term. President Trump has done far more for America than any of the people in Washington D.C. could ever accomplish even if they wanted to (which I’m not convinced they do). And the kicker is that he absolutely did not have to do any of this. He didn’t have to go through any of this.
He very easily could have just sat back in one of his many high-class domiciles as the country fell to socialism. For a while, and likely for the rest of his own life, he would have been living very well. The Biden administration and the establishment will, once they have the WH, seek to destroy the middle class, which will be to the benefit of the upper class. He could have easily just ridden a similar wave under what would have very easily been a Hillary Clinton administration. But instead, he chose to stick his own neck out and risk the scorn of half the country if it meant he could have the chance to save all of it.
Granted, I don’t think he ever thought the pushback would ever be so fierce, and even I was taken by surprise a bit, but I don’t think he believed there would have been just about no pushback. Further, if he believed it would have been an easy ride through two terms, and was met with the hatred and vitriol that he was, he would have shrunk back and handed control of everything to the establishment. Very easily, he could have set something up or made some deal which would allow him to resign rather quietly and with some grace. That he stepped up and fought as hard as he did throughout four years is an indication that he at least was expecting some amount of resistance to what he was trying to do, even if not this much of it, or that he at least was willing to stick his neck out and not just back out of what he committed to do.
He risked his own life and wealth to Make America Great Again and people within and without the establishment have immediately or ultimately turned their backs to him. This is something we suspected for a long time, but has become very clear recently: Trump is well and truly alone in D.C. Various people around him have betrayed him, from Omarosa to Scaramucci to Sessions to Barr to Chad Wolf to Krebs and the list goes on and on. The only one I thought was actually still with Trump was Pence, and that clearly is not the case anymore.
Even if unwittingly, Pence has betrayed not only Trump, but the nation itself by certifying the illegitimate results of the 2020 election. While this article is largely about how much Trump has been betrayed, let’s not beat around the bush: Trump being betrayed means we are betrayed.
This goes well beyond President Trump. An entire country’s election has been stolen, openly, and those whom we believed would be in the way of it – the Trump-appointed SCOTUS picks as well as the conservative justices, the state legislatures in the stolen states which are run by Republicans, the Republican governors of some of these states whom rode Trump’s coattails, and even the Vice President himself – have all come to betray us and the Constitution.
I don’t know how Pence believes “freedom wins”, as he declared upon continuing with the counting of the ballots to certify an illegitimate president, when an election is openly stolen and those whom reap the rewards intend on fundamentally destroying this nation even more than they have. Pence’s “freedom” is our slavery. The Washington Establishment’s freedom is our slavery.
Thomas Jefferson is attributed with saying: “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” What we have is not a government which fears the people. What we have is a government which hates the people. What we have is a government which will do whatever they can to make us fear them.
Unfortunately for them, we have no reason to fear the government and they are incapable of providing even one. Those who fear the Lord cannot fear men. Those who fear the Lord cannot fear the government.
God has control even over the evil and wicked people. Whatever evil they may wish to do is limited by God. They will still do evil, as the fact that Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Xi, Nero and countless other despots have been allowed to wreak havoc when and where they reigned goes to show, but even that is limited by God. Hitler sought to eradicate the Jews and he failed. Stalin sought to have the Soviet Union rule the world and he failed. Mao and Xi sought/seek to have China rule the world (you think they would be content with a globalist power which they don’t fully control?) and God-willing, will fail. Putin seeks something similar for Russia (he wants to rule the world himself, not let Xi do it) and God-willing, will fail.
Whatever the wicked people of the world, historically and presently, seek to do is all limited by God. They still do evil and incredible damage, but nothing that God cannot change or fix. The evil of slavery had its grip on this country for quite a long time, since before it was first founded, but God, through courageous and righteous men, changed that and brought physical freedom to the enslaved. God freed the hearts and souls of those who were in shackles and, eventually, freed their bodies as well.
The evil of the Holocaust and the Nazis led to the ruination and death of millions of Jews, but God, through courageous and righteous men, changed that and led them to reinstate the country of Israel for the first time in millennia.
I don’t know the plans that God has for us, but I know that they are better than my own. We are now aware of the beast that is the establishment. It’s really quite the accomplishment for Trump that it took this beast, which had been operating in the darkness for decades, to reveal itself in order to defeat Trump. And now that we are aware of the enemy, we can better prepare for them.
In 2016, we had some idea as to the size of the swamp, but believed that it was largely just the elected officials and a few bad apples in the government who needed to be drained. Now, we recognize the size of the beast, and can better prepare for it.
Had we gotten what I wanted, a massive red wave and Trump landslide, the size of the beast would have remained a secret to us and would have made it more difficult for us to fight against it, if not outright impossible. Even if it’s at the cost of Trump’s well-deserved and legitimately-earned second term, we can have a better idea as to what we are fighting than what we would have otherwise.
Which is largely why I implored that people have hope in God above all else. Originally, that article was just regarding the election itself in the hopes that we wouldn’t get a Biden presidency, but the principle works for all situations anyway.
It’s not that we should have trust in our legal systems, for they have been exposed to be very flawed at best and rigged at worst. It’s not that we should have trust in politicians, for they have shown cowardice, betrayal, or both regarding their support for not only Trump but also the American people and the Constitution. It’s not that we should have trust in even Trump himself, because he is every bit an imperfect man as you or I. It’s that we should have trust in the Lord, for He is holy, holy, holy. Only God is entirely righteous, just, fair and wise. It is His Word and His Son whom we should cling to and put our faith and trust.
Recognizing this does not, at any capacity, mean a betrayal of Trump. Bad faith actors will accuse us of being cultists, and some may even take their adulation too far (I did see on Facebook, shortly after Trump was elected, someone who said “In Trump We Trust” which is not something anyone should do or say because we cannot pretend as though Trump can replace God), but many of us trust Trump because we trust God. We trust Trump, no doubt, but we must above all else and everyone else, have trust in the Lord.
There were times when Trump was disappointing, such as when he signed those omnibus bills, but he can be excused because he is human and fallible (not to mention he never neared the level of disappointment that I have felt with regard to many people we thought were on our side). God never disappoints because He is infallible. He is not caught off guard by the actions of the people around Trump or anyone else. He saw this coming when He created the universe. So why wouldn’t any of us put our trust in Him?
Despite the pain and suffering that is sure to come in a Biden (and, quite possibly, Harris) presidency, we must never waver in our faith in God. We must place Him above all else, trust in Him above all else, and follow Him above all else.
The short-term future won’t be pretty, but I believe another like Trump will come along as being anointed by God to fight against the establishment tyrants.
To conclude this rather lengthy impassioned article, all I have to say is… PRAY AND RESIST! For with Christ, all things are possible.
“But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
