God Chose Trump, Another Reason Why

     Among the prophets who told us that Trump was to be president is Jeremiah Johnson.  In 2015, Johnson prophesied: “ I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, ‘Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find
in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him.’”

Since then, others have expanded on this prophecy to mean hidden and fatal corruption is, and will be, brought out of the darkness into the light.

Today our reader, Guy Faulkes has posted one of the most significant articles posted on this blog
The Federalist

From the article:  It’s nearly incontrovertible that a slow-motion coup d’etat is now taking place. Since November 9, 2016, forces within the U.S. government, media, and partisan opposition have aligned to overthrow the Electoral College winner, Donald Trump.

To achieve this they have undermined the institutions of the Fourth Estate, the bureaucratic apparatus of the U.S. government, and affable members of Congress, revealing themselves as the “Deep Government.”  Unlike the coup d’etat that sees a military or popular figure lead a minority resistance or majority force into power over the legitimate government, this coup d’etat is leaderless and exposes some of the deepest fissures in our system of government. This coup d’etat represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.

“The villain of “1984” isn’t a “man” but an entity — a bureaucracy with an authoritarian impulse. Big Brother isn’t so much a man or a leader, but a symbol of the omnipotent reach of the bureaucratic state that dominated the dystopian future. The fear of an elected leader turning into a tyrant — as the political Left and some on the political Right feared in Trump — doesn’t play into the narrative of the novel. Rather, it is the fear of a nearly faceless administrative state; a state that has achieved a near totality in terms of tyranny.

Following is a direct quote too powerful to try to excerpt: “If conservatives are right about the importance of virtue, morality, religious faith, stability, character and so on in the individual; if they are right about sexual morality or what came to be termed “family values”; if they are right about the importance of education to inculcate good character and to teach the fundamentals that have defined knowledge in the West for millennia; if they are right about societal norms and public order; if they are right about the centrality of initiative, enterprise, industry, and thrift to a sound economy and a healthy society; if they are right about the soul-sapping effects of paternalistic Big Government and its cannibalization of civil society and religious institutions; if they are right about the necessity of a strong defense and prudent statesmanship in the international sphere—if they are right about the importance of all this to national health and even survival, then they must believe—mustn’t they?—that we are headed off a cliff.”

God is powerless against the fourth estate?

Bob Woodward says "reporters are binging on anti-Trump koolaid"

Guy, thanks for finding this article. I have to confess that when, on the other thread on this subject, I was somewhat disappointed that you went for a logical explanation. You, of all my readers, I had hoped might at least consider a supernatural explanation about something that has no logical explanation. I have spent my entire life studying people both as a psychologist and as a priest People typically don't act like what we are seeing unless they are under the power of unexplainable forces.

I see no morality or positive family values in the Conservative political agenda or deeds.

Anonymous 9:11 has given us an example of what you are saying Blogger.

If Trump fails, if he is impeached or is otherwise forced out of office the Deep State will believe they have won, but what they will have done is set us on a course of Civil War.

Over 600,000 soldiers died fighting the last civil war, which consolidated power for the Deep State in the Federal Government.

The next one will be far bloodier.

Deep State. More comic book, alt-right, alt-fact, conspiracy theory. It keeps you up at night.

Before I would debate the existence of "Deep State" with Anonymous 10:21, and assuming it is not LPOV which would be like debating Goofus, I would want Anonymous to at least look up the definition of "Deep State" as it relates to current events because his above comment shows he has no idea what the term means... so maybe it is LPOV.

While I'm researching Deep State, I'll also research Elders of Zion, Bigfoot, Area 51, 9/11, Kennedy assassination, Loch Ness monster, Illuminati, Flat Earth, contrails, Knights Templar, Bilderberg group, HAARP, RFID chips, New World Order, Freemasons, Skull and Bones, and Doomsday Preppers. They all share the same relevance for you kooks.

Anonymous 12:01 PM- Obviously your pre research comment, as you stated.

Anonymous said...

Quoting Mike Lofgren, who first wrote about Deep State:

"the Republican Party is "becoming more like an apocalyptic cult." He particularly described Republicans as caring exclusively about their rich donors; being psychologically predisposed toward war; and pandering to the anti-intellectual, science-hostile, religious fundamentalist fringe. Lofgren wrote that the Tea Party is "filled with lunatics" and that lawmakers used the "routine" vote to raise the debt limit—which Congress has done 87 times since the end of World War II—to create "an entirely artificial fiscal crisis."[3] The essay received widespread media attention because of Lofgren's status as a long-term, respected Republican civil servant."

Deep State is kook nonsense, but his description of you nimrods is spot on.

Sarkazein said...

Anonymous 12:46 PM- Your quote from Lofgren has absolutely nothing to do with deep state. Are you incapable of researching Deep State?

Anonymous said...

Research Lofgren and you will find the genesis of Deep State.

"Deep state has been defined in 2014 by Mike Lofgren, a former Republican U.S. congressional aide, as "a hybrid association of elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry that is effectively able to govern the United States without reference to the consent of the governed as expressed through the formal political process."

Absolutely nothing? Incapable of research? You are a kook moron, Mr Sarkazien. Shine those cowboy jack boots with Toby Keith in the background. Better yet, stock up on aluminum foil for that ten gallon brain bucket.

Lodgren may have first coined the term "deep state" but he does not own it. It has evolved as have most political terms.

The establishment wing of the Republican party is certainly included in those that are trying to overthrow the Trump administrator. Lodgren did not carer for the Tea Party. The Trump administration has many policies that could be attributed to the Tea Party. Therefore, Lodgren is not a Trump fan. Who cares if his definition of "deep state" is not the same as those that support Trump? It does not change the obvious fact that the Trump administration is under attack from those that would illegally subvert the Constitution and laws of the United states in order to destroy it.

Certainly those that support this coup will try to dismiss its existence. They prefer to work in the dark.

A conspiracy theory is not a theory when it is obvious it is a fact.

Anonymous- Deep State is the unelected bureaucracy and others that continue making policy and running day to day operations regardless of who is elected as their boss/ or his agency Secretaries. It has been written about since the Fifties as it relates to US politics.
Who has access to transcripts on calls between the President and a foreign leader? Who released them to the NYT? Deep seated bureaucrats in unelected positions. Deep State in the Fifties was referred to as the military industrial complex and the Pentagon. Now it is also some in the intel agencies.
A shiny object in the way of the unrelated Lofgren quote distracted you. It doesn't matter whether or not you think they are working against Trump or whether you think their work against Trump is justified, they exist. This is why Cabinet Members are often referred to as figureheads, the bureaucrats will be around long after the Secretary serves his four year term and they know it and they have a job to do no matter what the elected politicians say.

Sarkazein said...

At least you now know from the tiny bit of research you did that Trump didn't invent the theory and that it existed in one way or another long before Trump started campaigning for President.

Sarkazein said...

Anonymous- After the debate when Trump balked at the question of whether or not he would accept a Hillary victory, the Democrat Leadership and the MSM went totally ballistic. They said it disqualified Trump from being president, that it undermined the US Constitution and democracy and on and on. When Trump won, the Democrat Leadership and the MSM did not accept Trump's victory. Deep State doesn't either, and just as the Democrat leadership and the MSM said- it is undermine the US Constitution and democracy as we know it.

Hey cuck, how is deep state a fact?

Sarkazein said...

Annoyance 6:09 AM- Whether you believe there are factions of Deep State working against Trump or not, it is a fact that it exists as described. If it was Obama who was having transcripts of his communications leaked you would be squealing like a stuck Maxine Waters. You believe Lofgren's anti-Republican comment but nothing he says about Deep State? I guess you will have to wait until the MSM allows you to believe it.

Sarkazein said...

Chuck Shummer (sp) even warned Trump about Deep State. Shummer (sp) even used it as more of a threat.

Anonymous said...

"...it is a fact that it exists as described."

This is bullshit until you present solid evidence. Because Breitbart told you it was doesn't make it true.

Lofgrens description of republicans is true and fact based. It's proven here on a daily basis.

I always believe that you read a few sentences of my posts, then give some knee jerk response. But if you can take off your tunnel vision glasses just this time you will find who we really are in the last paragraph of this post. I am not very hopeful though that you can get trough the cognitive dissonance though to let it get through your filters.
