President Trump’s Masada Moment

There seems to be only one area of common ground in our country today: agreement that something is wrong.

But regarding what that “something” is, and what we need to do, there is profound disagreement throughout the nation.

The violence in which the sacred ground of our nation’s Capitol building was violated by unruly hooligans, resulting in the death of five, is a low point in our history.

Clearly, something is wrong. But we won’t be able to fix it until we define it correctly.

Those on the right are entirely correct that the tone of violence, chaos and nihilism was set by the left.

Our cities and institutions have been vandalized and looted with impunity by the Black Lives Matter and antifa movements over the last several years, receiving support and endorsement by Democratic Party leaders and, sadly, many business leaders.

After a violent mob pulled down a statue of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore, a journalist asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “Shouldn’t that be done by a commission or the city council, not a mob in the middle of the night throwing it into the harbor?” Pelosi’s response: “People will do what they do.”

The speaker tore up, for all to see on international television, the president’s State of the Union address after he finished discharging that constitutionally directed duty.

I, of course, could go on.

The point is that the answer to horrible behavior is not horrible behavior.

It’s the absolute secularization of the nation, the purge of the Almighty from our public life, the crowning politicians king of the universe, that is destroying us.

Our democratic republic, our freedom, is vital. But with no absolutes, it deteriorates to chaos.

It is why President Lincoln refused to let the issue of the spread of slavery be submitted to democracy. There must be absolutes that precede politics.

It is the Ten Commandments where we learn that murder and theft are forbidden. When life and property are turned over to politics, the result is the chaos we now see.

The nation’s high court, in many bad decisions over the last century, has undermined our Constitution as a limiting factor on federal government power. But the critical moment of detaching the nation as a free nation under God occurred in 1973, in the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion. The federal government took charge of defining life and giving women license to destroy it.

Then, in 2015, in the Obergefell v. Hodges decision, government seized the authority to define, or redefine, the sacred institution of marriage.

President Trump had a successful presidency in his effort to “Make America Great Again.”

A powerful economy was restored and has sustained us through the COVID-19 crisis. Our courts are now filled with principled, conservative judges. The United States led the way to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and a new, unbelievable peace has been achieved in the Middle East.

But America cannot be great if America, as Alexis de Tocqueville said, is not good.

President Trump now has an opportunity to sign off on a powerful note that will totally change the tenor that Democrats want to set.

He cannot control Democrats’ ability to politicize events and impeach him. But, if they do it, he can take control by resigning.

He can take the high, high ground, in contrast to their low, low ground. He can take responsibility for the horror that just occurred at the Capitol, because it occurred on his watch. And he can use the opportunity to declare that America must be a free nation under God, and that this is the great challenge that faces us going forward.

He can turn the reins of leadership, in these waning days, to Vice President Mike Pence, an upright Christian man and American patriot who could speak truth to the nation as the unruly Democratic mob takes charge and begins its long campaign to drag our nation into the abyss.

Pelosi’s hatred of President Trump will probably give her a
place in hell unless her god is different than must Americans’

Star – great article – except for the statement that Trump should resign. DO NOT AGREE AT ALL. Let them pull their impeachment charade – it will come back on them in the end.

I think you are correct on this post. The only thing I can think of doing is to pray that Jesus sees that our country is worth redeeming. Are there enough Christians here to bring that about?

YES Donald. There are enough Christians in the USA. Jesus has already redeemed each one. What each of us should do now is follow Jesus’s example and say to the anti-social, anti-Faithful ones,”Get behind us you Satan worshippers! The USA is ONE Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for all under Law. Unfortunately today we have a faction that considers the US Constitution as being only an opinionated set of rules penned in the late 18th. Century. That faction considers it alright to murder unborn babies and to tamper with election results for the purpose of illegally increasing the number of votes for one’s preferred candidates. God Bless our Great Nation and protect Donald John Trump and his family.

Donald,
I posted a reply to you but for some reason I wrote the post to the wrong person under Mary Schiller. My apologies to her and you. Please read it and know that it is said in love. One thing room prevented me from saying is that I am terribly disappointed in Pence. God rarely taps one person for a call such as Pence was and I had prayed that he would wear the mantle. But it is not my decision to judge what is between him and God and may God forgive him if he did indeed fail him.

Donald, I copied and pasted this- don’t know why I didn’t think of it before.
I agree that those folks were not Trump supporters however, and it grieves me to say this and I am including myself in what I am about to say, 2nd Chronicles 7-14 tells us what we need to do encourage God to answer our prayer and to heal our nation. Have we seen any increased fervor, repentance and return to God since we elected Trump.
After ovomit we nearly nationally begged God for a righteous President and Trump became our Beloved leader. But even as Christians we continued to live the same life, the life of the enemy. Church leaders have acknowledged that attendance continued to drop off. God spoke and he said if MY People will humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear and heal their land……But even tho God began to heal our land, our lives did not reflect an increase in holy living! The lives of Christians must become fervent, dedicated, and genuine but I suspect we are too late as the world is hovering on the verge of the Great and Terrible Tribulation and our prayers will fall silent and unheard over the weeping and wailing that will cover the earth. May God have mercy upon us all-may we all find the will to return to a genuine holy God filled life. Tis our last chance!Donald,

Sounds very harsh, but I think I must agree. We’ve always known that the Dems can’t win without cheating and somehow we lost our will to fight like hell to win a victory in every state. Now after Citizens United (wasn’t that a Republican idea) we have everyone with $$$ against us. At the end of the day, after the FBI (can we trust them?) completes its investigation and determines that the culprits were Trump enemies not his supporters. The crowd were the Tea Party folks, you know those of us who stay at the Holiday Inn and eat at Olive Garden, to quote a CNN commentator, we are non-violent. Only Dems tolerate fire, death, the de-funding of the police, the baling out of the anarchists. What the hell happened to us. Did we all become Mitt Romney?

The Democrats have nothing to worry about it the mid term elections. The people are so upset with the Republicans that sold them out they are going to start a third party and next election there will be no republican candidates winning anywhere. In a few years there will be a 2 party system again. The Democrats will be held according what they do and the patriot party will work with them to bring back a better country.
