Maybe God Made a Mistake?
I find it hard to believe that someone so insignificant in the political landscape of America would suddenly become ground zero in the fight against political correctness. Yet that is exactly what happened when Donald J. Trump felt that God had called him to run for the presidency. His hunch was confirmed through mighty men of God who had never met and knew very little about him.
In 2015 the big announcement was met with doubt, laughter and skepticism, yet one man was very serious. That man was Donald Trump. He was in it for all the marbles and his opponents were well known business leaders or seasoned politicians with name recognition and many were currently seated in Congress. Hillary Clinton was the Democratic favorite assumed to become the first woman president on what was her third try at the nomination.
During the first GOP Presidential Debate the question was thrown out, “Could Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton” and the answer given by Mike Huckabee without hesitation, “Anyone on this stage could beat Hillary” (paraphrased).
What few knew and even fewer remembered were the television interviews in the 80s and 90s where Donald Trump was asked if he would ever run for president. His answer, “If my country needed me to.”
Few remember Trumps meeting with President Reagan or his pronounced love of America. Instead they saw only a spoiled little rich kid who had everything handed to him on a silver platter. They knew nothing at all about the kid sent off to boarding school, a military school where his father expected him to be straightened out. Trump then went into the family construction business, working from the ground up he became a skilled real estate tycoon who knew politicians and how to use them for his advantage.
When candidate Trump hit the campaign trail politicians didn’t consider him a serious threat. They seriously misjudged him. For Trump winning wasn’t everything, it was the only thing and his focus was laser sharp and his stated purpose was to drain the swamp and make America great again.
There was an organized effort to derail the Trump campaign and send him packing back to New York City. Every tool in the Alinsky toolbox was used against him: allegations of past sexual indiscretions, tax fraud and the trumped up and infamous Russia hoax, each one enough to cause any other politician to turn tail and run. At the end of the day Trump beat all competitors and won the presidential election of 2016. The world was stunned.
Over the course the 4 years of the Trump presidency politicians of both political parties conspired together to put a quick end to his administration. All stops were pulled out and it was bare-knuckled fisticuffs with no holds barred: endless investigations, allegations of misconduct resulting in Trump’s vindication of all charges, including House Democrats bringing up not one, but two separate impeachments resulting in Trump’s complete vindication.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a televised press conference that one way or another Trump would no longer be president in 2021. So when the November 3rd election numbers began to mysteriously shift from Trump to Biden we were told it was normal. As the results were being contested Trump was told to just suck it up and quit whining. The events of January 6th, 2021 were designed to cast doubt and blame on Trump’s supporters and specifically on President Trump for instigating an insurrection inside the Capitol building. Pelosi went so far as to contact and give instructions to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Miley to ignore any orders from the president and keep him away from the nuclear codes. Clearly Pelosi’s act and Miley’s response violated his office as the president’s foremost military advisor and both were treasonous.
The electoral votes were then certified and the inauguration of Biden took place on January 20th, 2021 but like a ravenous dog Pelosi continued after Trump with the second impeachment, even after he left office.
So I ask, did God make a mistake in raising Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States? Did God not see what was going to happen? Was God not able to prevent all that has been going on? Or was this not part of God’s plan to expose the corruption and bring the swamp out of the shadows?
Can one refine gold without the fire? Do precious metals just appear out of nowhere as finished products? It is better to go through the refiner’s fire while in the perfect will of God, than trying to go it alone without him. I’m sure that God’s plan was to do whatever necessary to bring him glory and honor and show that he is in control, no matter what surprises mere men and women.
God was not surprised and no he didn’t make a mistake. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
