10/14/16 – Clinton vs. Trump: The ultimate firestorm
It has become the firestorms of all firestorms. This season’s Presidential elections are seemingly unequaled to any in U.S. history, with scandal after scandal on both sides of the political spectrum seemingly popping up every day. For Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State is desperately trying to circumvent accusations of all-out criminal activity, from deleting 33,000 emails to the events surrounding Benghazi to hiding her husband’s purported multiple incidences of rape. If you watched last week’s debate, you would have noticed Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Kathy Shelton sitting in the stands. On the Trump side, the millionaire tycoon is attempting to put to rest tapes that he has labeled “locker room talk” in which he can be heard speaking about touching women without their consent.
Remember, now, that both Clinton and Trump are #15 FCILs with largely different personas highly based on nurture. Their paths, too, have been directed by youth and upbringing, with Hillary quickly becoming the queen of politics and Donald the king of real estate. Bill and Hillary well-learned early on together in Arkansas to play the game of moral on the surface and backhanded under the table. Whether it be cases of rape, murder, extortion, perjury, etc., every imaginable scandal has been following them like an eerie shadow. While no one truly knows which are true or false, Trump has, in spite of his own sexual controversies, been able to keep competitive this Presidential race simply because so many Americans are fed up with the overly-clandestine Clintons and the radical change from traditional America.
And so we have the 3-wheel FCIL bandwagon with Donald, Bill, and Hillary, and for a 4th wheel we could even throw in Michelle Obama and her strong but masked desire to one day become the next POTUS. In short, Bill and Hillary have become the face of corporate, big banking globalism, while Trump has defended small-business nationalism. Both individuals, as agreed by many, are significantly flawed, yet to many evangelical Christians (a major voting block), one more closely fits the Biblical guidelines. Consider this:
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” I Timothy 2:2
The first-century apostle Paul wrote these words from a cold jail cell to his cherished friend and pupil, Timothy, and they ring as true today as they did 2,000 years ago. Paul was simply saying, “Pray for a leader who will leave us alone!” First and foremost, it was to seek religious freedom amid the tyrannical rulers of Rome and elsewhere, not only for the uprightness and purity for one’s family but also for the ethical preservation of society as a whole. Contrast this with the direction of the current globalist movement which advocates Judeo-Christian standards be removed in order for it to succeed. It believes leadership must have the ultimate control to legislate all morality and standards. In other words, they become little gods on earth, and all values become subjective to their whims rather than embrace the absolutes from heaven as penned in the Scriptures.
Thus, whether it be matters of the unborn, euthanasia, sexuality, all social norms—including economic standards, and everything else, self-ascribed elite leaders must manipulate matters to achieve their self-serving visions. The lower classes are there to serve leadership’s secular standards, not to be interfered with by long-standing religious absolutes.
Bringing this into our present political moment, though Donald Trump is a man distinctly flawed, he more closely fits such New Testament leadership criteria verbally and on paper. Rather than making timeless scriptural standards “hate crimes” and labeled as some type of “phobia” (as does his opposition), he would be regarded as the superior Caesar for whom to pray succeeds. Are you a Republican or a Democrat? Thankfully, it does not matter. This is an issue of our most basic American freedoms (especially religious), freedoms the majority of people throughout history only wish they could have had. For some 250 years, Americans have been richly blessed from above.
It’s also good to note that when religious liberty is vanquished, all other freedoms become in jeopardy, soon to be lost as it’s now a subjective game, determined by those “who know better”. So America faces its biggest battle yet, even dwarfing Lincoln’s Civil War, since it now must choose whether it pursues secular progressivism or tries to reverse its course to reclaim some of its Constitutional fundamentals.
And now, one more debate next week! Hillary was largely viewed as winning the first, and Donald the second. All gloves will be off, with Trump fighting an uphill battle for sure. If he can emphasize his message of personal freedoms, protection of the 2nd amendment, and continuation of liberties and upward mobility for all Americans, it will serve his campaign well.
