In life, politics, and faith it is always a trust issue!  In today’s political climate and the current state of much of the organized church trust in God is almost nonexistent.  I know that will be grating to some, but it is what I see and believe that we have moved from dependence upon God’s Almightiness and Providence to the Arm of Flesh and what we can do or believe we can do.  I am convinced that Donald Trump was evidence of a small window of opportunity or a delay in the impending judgment upon America.  That window closed on January 6, 2021, with the actions of Congress and the elections in Georgia.  You may disagree, but it is how I see it.

I believe that we have moved from the spirit and mentality of King Jehu to the spirit and mentality of Elijah.  If you study King Jehu in the Old Testament you will find many things about his reign and personality that are, in a measure, mirrored in Donald Trump.  When Jehu rose the temple of Baal fell.  Jehu faced the former king’s wife in a head-to-head confrontation and Trump faced a former president’s wife in a head-to-head battle.  Now we have seen our window of reprieve close and it is time for believers to allow the spirit and mentality of Elijah to prevail and rather than focusing solely on politics we need to focus on the Kingdom of God and the message of the Cross.  In that, we can impact our world in a far greater measure than solely investing ourselves in the political where we are covered with the corruption 24/7/365.

I do not suggest that we ignore the political but rather that we become people who believe God and seek to do the Will of God in all things and at all times.  Rather than the world and the political influencing and impacting us or determining our lives we should allow the Spirit and Word of God to become the influencer and although it may seem hopeless to remain in Hope because of the Power and Promises of God.  Nothing is Impossible with God or to those who believe.  I believe; therefore, my focus is God and my calling is to be a Watchman on the Walls sounding alarms where alarms are needed.

When it comes to politicians in 2021 it is a trust issue and I don’t!  I was asked if you rated your level of trust and compared politicians with dishonest used car salesmen which would you trust more.  I laughed and then said, “Well, I supposed it would have to be the dishonest used car salesmen because they are less dangerous.” 

However, the more I contemplated the question and comparison, I am 100% certain that I trust politicians less.  They are far more sinister, double-dealing, and diabolical.  Politics of the Swamp Brand has become the slimmest and most underhanded of all the minions of hell.  They are diabolically devious and dangerous.  They care about nothing but their own position, agenda, and purse.  We are not even secondary to them; we are simply useful tools to achieve their purposes. 

The American Constitution has become nothing more than a nuisance and an afterthought to the political ruling class of today.  I would love to say that it is only those on the Left that we should categorize in this manner, but it is not.  In some ways, the Republicans, especially those of the Establishment mentality and denizens of the swamp are as bad, if not worse than the Democrats.  I say that because, the Democrats have a documented record of being pernicious, congenital, pathological liars.  The Republicans have, at least, pretended to be fighting for us.  Some have, but too many have not.

The history of the Democratic Party dating back to the Jim Crow era reveals they are anything but advocates for the American people.  They are not and have never been the friends of minorities and are not fans of the U.S. Constitution or our Capitalistic Economics, nor our Republican form of government.  They are at best oligarchs and at worst diabolical autocrats seeking total dominion and control.  In today’s political climate, they are no longer pretending, but the Republicans still pretend.

The assault on the family, the willing slaughter of the unborn, the preoccupation with and promotion of deviant sexual behavior and perversion, and the deconstruction of America’s most valued institutions beginning with the family and the church is shattering.  I have contended that you cannot look at individual candidates, but at the Party Platform to make your decision.  I am shifting a bit in my view because even though the platform of the GOP supposedly advocates for many things that I believe in and are good for America, members of the party capitulate and shaft us time and again.

I have concluded that most of the political class, many who have never held a real job, are in politics to feed their egos, line their pockets and become rich, and gain power and control.  We expect and rightly so, the Republicans to respect and uphold the Constitution, fight for the family, stand with the Church, protect our national sovereignty, and protect our borders.  They have fared better in that effort than the Democrats but when they could have stood with President Trump, they took the path of least resistance and either openly objected to his policies or they allowed the Democrats to impede the progress. 

When I look back on the four years of Donald Trump as president, I think of the Shakespearean Macbeth and their betrayal would have made Macbeth proud.  I truly believe that we would not be in this mess had they done what they needed to do and stood with the president and fought for the American people and America.  I believe that America would have risen en masse and despite any fraudulent overt and covert impropriety by the Left, we would have outnumbered them so completely they would have failed.  I could be wrong, but that is what I believe.

When I think of January 6, 2021 and reflect on the many campaign rallies held by Donald Trump where tens of thousands attended without incident, I cannot buy the theory that he incited the actions of the few in Washington.  The self-serving of politicians of both parties cause me to consider them a den of elapids and poisonous and dangerous.  They continually dangle their crumbs before us hoping to elicit our support and gratitude for their benevolence.  They spend our money and money that we do not have like the proverbial drunken sailor.  My apologies to drunken sailors for the comparison. 

Politicians of both parties want to keep us, all of us, on the plantation picking their cotton, and doing their heavy lifting as they take our money and our freedoms.  A passage from Jeremiah13:22-27 comes to mind, “Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?  Then may ye also do good that is accustomed to do evil…This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from Me, saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten Me, and trusted in falsehood.”

I have heard some claim they are Reagan-Republicans and Reagan-Democrats but quickly concluded they neither knew what Reagan stood for nor were they telling the truth.  Ronald Reagan fought for America as did Donald J. Trump.  You may detest everything about Trump and believe that we are better off without him, but even with his personal flaws, he demonstrated a love for America.  He demonstrated a willingness to fight for what he proposed and promised.  He did good for all people, not just the rich as the Left loves to charge all who disagree with their agenda.

Someone said of a certain devious sort, “He would climb a tree to tell a lie when he could have stood on the ground and told the truth.”  Liars lie and politicians have demonstrated a propensity to say whatever they believe will result in votes.  They no longer care whether or not we know they are fibbing.  We have elected and reelected them too frequently, despite their fabrications and being loose with the facts and truth for them to care.  They like the deviously used car salesman, do, or say whatever is necessary to close the deal.

Barack Obama said, “Elections have consequences.”  They most assuredly do, but so do the actions of those who are deemed the winners.  The Constitution is still the Law of the Land and unless we the people put enough pressure on politicians and the courts to enforce and uphold it, we will lose this Republic. 

In George Orwell’s 1984, he said, “The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears.  It was their final, most essential command.”  We are there and the media, the courts, and the politicians insist that we ignore the evidence before us.  They want us to ignore what has and is happening and believe the propaganda and regurgitate the rhetoric they offer.  They want us to believe that the graft of the politicians is not graft but simply their good fortune for fighting for us.  They are simply being rewarded for being good stewards of our trust.  They want us to ignore the massive speaking fees, the insane book deals, the charitable shakedowns, and the congressional stock trading. 

They have insisted that we trust their voices during the pandemic and allow them to instill such fear that we willingly relinquish all our freedoms, rights, and liberties.  Sadly, both sides of the aisle are complicit in this power grab and the numerous infringements.  They demand that we accept the biased presentations against Donald J. Trump and comply with their edicts.  They are making a mockery of the Constitution.  Thankfully, enough Republicans are resisting that we may salvage a smidgen of our Republic and have a small window of opportunity to begin the reclamation of America in 2022.  The operative word is “may” not “will”.

If trust is the issue, then we are screwed but no one in their right mind would trust the political class of today.  Give me the dishonest used car salesman any day.

God bless you and God bless America!
