In a segment from George Carlin’s Life is Worth Losing tour, he gives a scathing criticism of the American Dream, and at one point in his profanity-laced rant he observes that “no one seems to notice, no one seems to care” how good, honest, and decent people continue to vote for the same people who absolutely do not care about them at all.
This observation is very true, how men fail to notice what is taking place around them, noting that times change but men do not, and that there is a disturbingly cyclical nature to the nature of all things, including and especially with American politics.
In January 2019, I wrote an article where I addressed the remarks from Trump’s secretary who said that God appointed Trump to become President. In my words:
Trump was not appointed by God to be President. He was voted in because people want to be like him- a fornicating, lecherous, wealthy man with no regard for the welfare of anybody else other than his own power. He is a reflection of the contemporary American social ethos, and he has shown himself to be a common political liar as is demonstrated by his refusal to “BUILD THE WALL” that he so promised as a condition of his campaign to his base.
Saying that Trump was “appointed by God” is shameless pandering to the dwindling bloc of Evangelical Boomers within his likewise declining base, and while it may help in combination with other factors to ensure him a possible victory in 2020, if it does it will without question ensure a Democratic victory in 2024.

A lot of people did not like this. However, I could care less about personal opinions because the question remains- is the statement true?
In 2008, Louis Farrakhan on behalf of the Nation of Islam made an equally insane remark where he referred to then President Barack Obama as the Messiah:
Such a statement is ridiculous and political, and it has no place in public discourse because it serves to impart divine justification to one’s political leader without any logical basis at all. It is no different if Trump or Obama does it- political leaders are for the most part not appointed by God, and a near sure sign that a leader is not chosen by God is when people start saying that a leader was chosen by God and so to oppose said leader is to oppose God.
Some say that tyranny begins with the “elites” of a society, regardless of who they are. While this can be true, tyranny also many times grows from the masses but in a way that many do not see. It is reflective of the Hindu saying that “when the students are ready, the teacher appears,” meaning that just as the conditions of the soil in the ground have to be properly set for a seed planted to germinate and grow successfully, so must the conditions of a society be ready in order for certain ideas to take root and grow, and when those conditions are met the ideas espoused by men which can grow in those conditions will rise up like verdant shoots from the earth.
Obama came to power not because of a Muslim conspiracy, a Democratic conspiracy, or any other conspiracy, but because the people wanted him. He reflected the desires of Americans the same way that Trump does. It does not matter that one is a Democrat and the other is a Republican, because the people wanted them in office because they saw themselves in their leaders.
It is any surprise why this lady believed that Obama was going to pay her bills? Because the socialism she saw Obama espouse in his campaign was the same socialism she herself believes in. Yet the socialism that Obama supported was not that of “free stuff,” but a continuation of the same national socialist ideas advanced by his peers for decades before.
When Bush II was elected to power, many people directly equivocated Bush’s presidency with the work of God:
It is well-known that Bush II invaded Iraq because he believed God told him to:
resident George W. Bush stood before a cheering crowd at a Dallas Christian youth centre last week, and told them about being ‘born again’ as a Christian.
‘If you change their heart, then they change their behaviour. I know,’ he said, referring to his own conversion, which led to him giving up drinking.
Behind Bush were two banners. ‘King of Kings’, proclaimed one. ‘Lord of Lords’, said the other. The symbolism of how fervent Christianity has become deeply entwined with the most powerful man on the planet could not have been stronger.
Few US Presidents have been as openly religious as Bush. Now a new book has lifted the lid on how deep those Christian convictions run. It will stir up controversy at a time when the administration is keen to portray its ‘war on terror’ as non-religious.
The book, which depicts a President who prays each day and believes he is on a direct mission from God, will give ammunition to critics who claim Bush’s administration is heavily influenced by extremist Christians.
Bush is already under fire for allowing the appointment of General William Boykin to head the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Boykin, who speaks at evangelical Christian meetings, once said the war on terror was a fight against Satan, and also told a Somali warlord that, ‘My God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol.’ (source, source)
It is very hard to believe that God wanted the President of the US to invade a sovereign nation and in the process support Islamic terrorist groups so to commit genocide against the Christian minority and wipe it out completely, something which not even the Muslims did in spite of fourteen centuries of persecution. Not only that, but why would Jesus support the nation who backed as a part of the entire plan these same Islamic terrorists who have continued to destroy His Church in the Levant, causing a refugee crisis used to manufacture a European political crisis in order to revive calls for the same National Socialism which the Church has condemned as evil and which is deeply tied to both satanism and paganism?
The only lord that this serves is the lord of the flies.
Observe the Venezuela “crisis” taking place right now. This is not an actual civil war in the true sense, but it a conflict being driven by US interests.
But think beyond the war itself. In every war, there almost always ensues a refugee crisis because people want to flee the violence. This is just natural- people don’t want to get killed by a bullet that cost pennies to make and is being fired for political purposes, and neither to they want their families to die.
Right now, President Trump is at a political crossroads. The Democrat party seems to be ensuring a losing candidate for the election as part of a ploy to ensure a 2024 victory (more on that later), but Trump has significantly torn at his own based by his clear wavering on his main campaign promise to his base, which is to “build the wall” on the Mexican border. Trump, a historical Democrat (who is likely close private friends with Pelosi and Schumer just like he is a known friend of the Clintons), has made a good “show” for the last two months with the “government shutdown” and the nonsense which ensued from that, but it is still not covering his base, and he could lose in the forthcoming vote.
If he “built the wall” it would likely ensure victory, but he is probably not going to do that because as I have repeatedly emphasized, illegal immigration is a cornerstone of US policy, and while most “illegals” pass through border checkpoints, nothing is going to be done to impede the flow of human capital into the US as the government views them as an investment into the agricultural sector as a part of domestic and foreign policy goals.
However, it would be helpful to have a “show of force” at the border for Trump to show that he is “standing up to the Democrats who want to fill America with “ILLEGAL, UNPATRIOTIC INVADERS”.”
Enter in here the “refugees” from Venezuela. Since it is clear that many people are going to try to flee, what is to say that, just like with the 2015 “refugee crisis” that took place in Germany and Shoebat.com definitively showed on two separate occasions that the entire “crisis” was manufactured by the German government, who went to far as to directly traffick people from all over the world to her borders, the US government would not do the same, and for equally political machinations?
Given that Venezuela shares a border with Brazil, another historical German ally, and that she just elected the eugenics-supporting Jair Bolsonaro, it is possible that a “refugee crisis” may develop of the Venezuela-Brazil border, at which point Trump may offer to step in to “help” Bolsonaro with the “problem,” which happens to be one that the US created and which Brazil wants, which would have the end goal of boosting nationalism.
There are serious considerations regarding migration and laws, but far too many of the conflicts with “refugees” today are largely manufactured for political reasons with laws intentionally being violated so that those who allowed the breaks can publicly declare “Look at this violation of laws from these UNPATRIOTIC FOREIGNERS, that is the reason you should support nationalism.”
Back in 2003, I was in high school and I spent months protesting the Iraq war. I remember this was one of my early forays into the realm of American politics, and I have since seen and learned much. What I remember clearly is the over-emphasis on the so-called “divine inspiration” that Bush II had as the basis for his actions in Iraq and the Middle East, and that it was objectively dangerous. I remember the divide between Bush and a Democrat party that put forth the inherently losing candidate in Senator John Kerry that eventually yielded a second term for Bush but failed to seriously deal with many of the national problems, which lead to a great voter discontent that elected a nobody named Obama to the White House in 2008. I then saw Obama post-election act in a similar way, with his followers attributing god-like characteristics to him.
This year, New York elected a nobody representative to office named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She has received a curiously large amount of support from the Democrat party in finance and popularity. This comes at a time when a still-popular but less-popular-than-before Trump is going against a Democrat party that has and continues to fail in putting forth a serious candidate. Knowing that both Obama and Trump began their “campaigns” as early as 2006 and 2016 respectively (over two years away from the elections), and it is already 2019 and no serious Democrat contender for the 2020 election has been elevated, it is a sign that not only are they not serious, but they practically want to GIVE away the 2020 election to Trump so that they can get a 2024 Presidential victory.
In the American political religion, it is a veritable rite of worship to try to get the most “firsts” for a candidate. The Democrats are very good at this, and made sure use of it to get Obama elected to office in 2008. Following this logic, would they not seize the above-mention and manufactured opportunity to brag that they put the “first woman,” “first woman of color,” and “first Latina” into office? Likewise, would not the Republicans rejoice at this too in order to say how this “first” that the Democrats put in is destroying the nation just like under Obama?
The collusion between Democrats and Republicans is unmistakable, as the two are the same party with one goal, and it is that of advancing socialism in the US.
It has been sixteen years since the days of the Iraq war protests, and I can still remember them. Yet as much as it was a long time ago in what sometimes feels like another life, as I look at the news I see the events of 2003 all over again but in a slightly altered context, with greater stakes at hand and a world that has moved closer to war than it as since the 20th century, and a population that does not seem to care.
Many people will criticize foreigners for remembering too much of the past, and there is truth in such a statement. However, Americans cannot remember even the recent past, and so is continually forced to re-live the consequences of her actions.
