On October 20, the news narrative was full of stories condemning Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s response to a question during the third presidential debate about whether he would accept the result of the election if he lost. He responded, “I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense.” Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton tweeted that his stance was “horrifying” saying that it “was not the way our democracy works.” Trump was labeled “dangerous” and damaging to democracy by the current “president.”
The media opined that America’s democracy would be forever damaged if Trump didn’t accept defeat. Speculations of a shadow presidency ran wild. Today it’s a different story.
Once Trump won the election, the hypocrisy was revealed. Clinton and another communist loser Jill Stein of the Green Party challenged the election results. Democrats across the nation protested. Trump supporters were beaten and bullied. The Electoral College electors received thousands of letters, videos, emails trying to sway them to forsake their constitutional duty and vote for Clinton rather than Trump. Many received death threats.
Clinton’s election team, led by Saudi Arabia’s chief lobbyist and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, refused to say the election was free and fair. They tried to blame it on the Russians and fake news. They tried to create an atmosphere of rebellion against America.
Remember how reporters speculated for days what Trump not accepting defeat would do to the country? In the spotlight of news cameras, political analysts at colleges and universities said such a move would undermine the credibility of the elected president and could foment a shadow presidency by the loser, a divided nation.
But who tried to undermine president-elect Trump’s credibility? Who tried to damage America’s electoral system? Who fulfilled the fears of being “dangerous” to elected government? Clinton, the current occupant of the Oval Office, and the Democratic and Communist parties—that’s who. They conducted themselves in exactly the manner in which they feared of Trump.
We should never forget this.
On Monday, December 19, the Islamic Marxist revolution that threatened to remake America officially came to an end (for now) with Trump receiving 304 electoral votes (two shy of what he won on election night because two shirked their duty). And yes, our election system was and remains under attack by those who wish to undermine the presidency and damage our Republic; the very thing they accused Trump of doing if he refused to accept the election results.
Herein, we should apply Ephesians 4:14, “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”
Yes, it’s talking about doctrine here, but we would be wise to heed it as well when it comes to the political narrative by those who wish to destroy America.
Have ablessed and powerful day!
