Trump's Revolution Has Ended



By Dr. Gary North - Posted at The Tea Party Economist:

“President Obama is a very good man. I will seek his counsel in the future.” — Donald Trump (November 10, 2016)

The honeymoon with his supporters did not last long, did it?

I begin with two statements.

First, Donald Trump is not part of what is sometimes called “the conspiracy.”

Second, he will be on January 20, 2017.

We are about to see the capture of Donald Trump. It has already begun.

The mainstream media are beginning to see this. By January 20, it should be clear to anybody who wants to look at his nominees for the top cabinet positions. CNN’s headline has it right: Team Trump is already filled with Washington insiders.

We have already learned that the transition team has approached Jamie Dimon, the CEO of J.P. Morgan Chase. He was offered the position of Secretary of the Treasury. Anyone who thinks that this would be an improvement over the former CEO’s from Goldman Sachs is living in a fantasy world.

The handwriting is on the wall. We can expect more of the same. We had better expect more of the same.

Just for the record, the phrase “handwriting on the wall” comes from the fifth chapter of the book of Daniel. May I remind you, that was originally written in Hebrew, and Hebrew is written from right to left. So is everything in Washington. You should also recall what the handwriting said.

And this is the writing that was written, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin. His is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. ekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians (vv. 25-28).

That was a revolution. It was not just a coup d’état. Accept no substitutes.

  1. Excellent. Thank you for finding and posting this Angela.

    I haven't finished the entire article yet, but I am confident that it will end well. I respect Gary North and on many occasions find myself in the minority among reformed folk for holding that viewpoint. Here he nails it. The only thing I would add is that I believe that there never was a real Trump revolution. I think that the entire campaign was a scripted and acted out narrative designed to divide the country even further than it is already divided.

    But scripture tells us that it is our sovereign God who installs those who rule over us. And so it is that those so chosen will one day be held to account for how they conducted the business of governing and ruling.
