Politics. . . . Oddly, it's in my blood . . . probably through my grandpa on dad's side who was a Senator. I've always been interested in it--I like to watch the debates and pretty much track everything that's going on. The odd part I guess, is that even though I like to watch it like watching a sport, I don't think it's real. I believe the thing is rigged and is set up mostly as theater to distract while the actual power brokers are busy doing what they will regardless. What never gets addressed in all that back and forth and punditry analysis . . . is how much the globalist agenda is actually running the show. Has Trump said anything about the CFR? About the one world banksters who are starting wars and revolutions and chaos? About how THEY are the ones that must be resisted and shut down? All the domestic policies in the world can't do a thing while the trans-national globalists are overriding local control via sovereignty-superseding treaties, ie., like NAFTA, GATT and TPP.
What alarms me about Trump--although I too get a kick a get out of his political UN-correctness and his general "America first" motif--is how often and easily he has shifted his views on things. Anyone who has been friends with and praised the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Hitlery and Bill Clinton . . . as being "great, good people" . . . either has no spiritual discernment or doesn't have any foundational principles guiding his life. It's all pragmatism--whatever works in the moment. What's to say that, while now he is talking a fairly good "conservative" game . . . he doesn't start caving and compromising once it's "pragmatic" to change his positions yet again. Also, anyone who could ever support partial birth abortion . . . has got me worried. Yes, people change, but they don't really change unless they are Born Again--and I see no evidence of that in Trump from the way he talks, the pride, and how he attacks fellow conservatives with the same left-wing talking points the Demoncrats use and his unfamiliarity with Biblical thought and verse. I am a fan of the Constitution . . . and I don't believe he really is anchored in it. It's all deals, pragmatism, and a fair amount of Saul Alinsky tactics (which I abhor in the left, and abhor more when used by the "right"--those of isolating and demonizing opposition using falsehoods or whatever else works.)
At the same time, I do believe he loves America and does want to see it "winning" again. If he does make it through, I truly hope that he is indeed as independent from the global money/power brokers as he claims to be and, like a bull in a china shop, puts a halt to a lot of the underhanded back dealing that has so corrupted the civil/political system.
It all is looking suspiciously like a Shakespearian theatrical play, however. On stage: the socialist commi versus the billionaire capitalist. Communism or Capitalism, which will America choose from the two extremes? If we choose Capitalism . . . is it all simply allowed . . . because the NWO crew are on the verge of collapsing the whole system . . . so that forever it will be etched: "See! You fools chose the capitalist and now the whole system is crashing into a great, global depression!"
Capitalism then gets the final blame as the thing comes down. So, in the aftermath, everyone says, "Well, I guess we might as well try the socialism/communism thing now to rebuild . . . because look what happened when we picked the 'free market' capitalist!"
Or, is it simply . . . come election time, the votes get
rigged to elect socialist A or socialist B from the democraps . . . and
it is said, "Well, there you have it. A free and open election and
America has finally, publicly decided to go the socialism route full
force. End of debate."
The other concern is . . . I know the wicked media is holding its fire on Trump. They have got piles of hit pieces ready to go once he is nominated, and, unfortunately he has been on every side of the issues at one point or another and who knows what else they've got in their files to paint him into the poster boy for hypocrisy/flip-floppery. On the other hand people are so fed up with the establishment and the media that, in his case, it only seems to strengthen his following . . . and hopefully that is the way it goes. And . . . sorry to say . . . I see a lot of the same lack of objectivity and emotionalism in some of Trump's followers as I saw in Obama's. "Hope and Change" . . . "Make America Great" . . . work wonders to turn of critical thinking when a people are so beat down, frustrated and eager for salvation . . . that they will jump on board emotionally and then refuse to use any further reason and critical analysis because they don't want their balloon burst. . . . I also don't like the vitriol that too often instantly flies from "true believers" should you dare to engage them on legitimate issues of concern and disagree.
I still think Cruz is the closest thing to a principled statesman out there. I see him getting smeared from all sides. His mannerisms and delivery drive me crazy, but I'm not interested in glamor or star quality. I'm interested in brains and courage. It is obvious the establishment hates him--even more than Trump (they've admitted they think they can work with Trump if it comes down to it--"make deals" with him). I want a constitutionalist above all and I know that is something Cruz understands--he's a brilliant guy. BUT . . . his wife is a problem. Her contacts and inclinations are highly suspect (Goldman Sachs/CFR). I could be wrong, but I think just as Ted has gone up against his party leaders, he wouldn't let her influence control his decision making.
Ultimately, I don't fully trust any of them and I don't think it is really going to matter who gets in. The Luciferian global cabal has got the whole game pretty much sewn up one way or the other. If Trump or Cruz or any other were actually to start making headway into restoring the Republic and Constitutional government, I expect they (the NWO boys) will simply either eliminate them or quickly crash the whole system into chaos, catastrophe, war, disease and every other evil they can muster. Plus, I rely on God's Word and it seems fairly clear to me that . . . we are headed for a global Beast totalitarian government regardless. It's in His plan to allow it. That's just the way it is.
It's a fun distraction, like sports, to get your hopes up and I believe we are nevertheless always called to stand and oppose tyranny and evil and ought be seeking to establish God's kingdom on earth, primarily through the spreading of the Gospel (not politics); yet we ought be civilly minded as well and do our part if so led. . . . I certainly don't think favoring this or that candidate ought lead to the end of friendships and fellowship spiritually. This is all basically rot-gut stuff compared to what is truly important in this life, this world: GOD and His will. It (politics) becomes a sin when it becomes the hope of salvation, whether spiritually OR materially; when we are focused more on political "theater" and worldly personalities . . . than on Jesus--God--day to day. It's just one more trick up the Enemy's sleeve to distract, divert, co-opt, seduce, enslave . . . through inducing trust in the arm of flesh versus trust in the Lord.
Now, it could be that God gives us a break--stalls the tyranny for a season, which I wouldn't mind one bit. But in the end, I know where it's all going; and that is . . . that all man's efforts to create heaven on earth through political, economic, philosophical means etc., will pile up to one, big, glaring disaster--a hellish, Satanic world government . . . which the Lord will finally crush in one, grand sweeping gesture. THEN. . . .
"Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling
place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” --Rev. 21:1-4
