When the Vengeful Think They Are the Virtuous

I had hoped that the left’s complete victory over Trump and the Republican party would have placated them for a few months. It now appears that satisfaction will only come when they turn America into a dictatorship. The biggest difference between the right and the left is that the left has no empathy. They believe they are 100% correct and everyone else is wrong.

It should be obvious to all Americans that the second impeachment of Donald Trump was nothing more than an exercise in stupidity. We’ve done this before with the same outcome–acquittal. The Democrats voted to kick him out of an office that he has already vacated. I can only wonder if some new criminal offense will surface that will require a third “historic” impeachment of the same man.

The left’s pettiness in its hatred of all things Trump should have triggered outrage. The Washington Post argued that Trump doesn’t deserve to have a presidential library. Biden said Trump was too dangerous to receive any more intelligence briefings, which has been granted to all previous presidents.

I’m sure citizen Donald’s life is going to become a nightmare. Because all America’s current problems are the result of Trump, no action taken against him will be reported as going too far. We may see credit card companies and vendors decline to provide services to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Even the most hardcore Democrats should not want to live in a nation where the mob decides who should be persecuted for their political views.

Gina Carano, a mixed martial artist who played the hard-charging mercenary Cara Dune on “The Mandalorian,” was sacked by Lucasfilm after comparing modern-day conservatives to Jews persecuted during the Holocaust. She had reposted the following tweet:

“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers, but by their neighbors… even by children,” the post reads. “Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?”

Pedro Pascal, the lead actor in The Mandalorian, also made a politically-charged Holocaust comparison, and it seems Disney has not taken any action in his case. In the summer of 2018, when Democrats demonized President Donald Trump for putting “kids in cages” by sharing photos of children put in cages during the Obama administration, Pascal explicitly compared the “kids in cages” claim to the Holocaust. He shared two images with the hashtag “ThisisAmerica.”

Virginia Heffernan, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, wrote the most perverse column in recent memory. The title: “What can you do about the Trumpites next door?” Heffernan wasn’t lamenting neighbors who had jokingly put pro-Trump signs in her yard or who had participated in the Jan. 6 riots. No, Heffernan was lamenting the travails of living next door to Trump supporters who dared to clear her driveway of snow.

Heffernan writes, “Trumpites next door to our pandemic getaway … just plowed our driveway without being asked and did a great job.” This simple act launched Heffernan into a journey of angst and rage. “How am I going to resist demands for unity in the face of this act of aggressive niceness?” she bemoans. “I realize I owe them thanks — and, man, it really looks like the guy back-dragged the driveway like a pro — but how much thanks?”

Many of the people who invaded the Capital Hill building cannot find lawyers to represent them. It shows how vile and uncivilized our nation has become. The defendants at Nuremberg were provided with legal counsel because, at that time, people still had respect for the rule of law. With there being no middle ground for rational debate, civil war or death squads for anyone seen as a foe will be the fate of our nation.

We are likely beyond the point where an event could trigger a revival to constitutional thinking or even a pause in our decline. When people become so irrational that they think they have a monopoly on truth, there is no reasoning that will return them to sanity.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21).

Israel in End-Times Spotlight

While the globalists, world media, and the American political deep state wind up another unsuccessful effort to bring down one man, the spotlight of Bible prophecy focuses on exactly where it should be at this late hour of the age.

Israel shines brightly as the number-one signal of where this generation is on God’s prophetic timeline.

We begin to understand that this is true by considering that Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, faces much of the same sort of globalist deep-state hatred and attempted destruction as former President Donald Trump. In this way, the student of Bible prophecy who looks at things from the pre-Trib view again comprehends the Heaven-directed linkage between His chosen nation and our own very special republic founded on Judeo-Christian principles.

Both men, intensively in the world’s spotlight for the past number of years, seem an almost joined-at-the-hip representation of this God-directed connection.

America was instrumental in Israel again springing to national existence on May 14, 1948, as we know. This, despite great objections from the American State Department. Looking at the history, we can see the hand of the Almighty as He moved in the lives of President Harry Truman and his one-time haberdashery partner, a Jewish man named Eddie Jacobson.

Jacobson prevailed upon his friend, then president, to intervene on behalf of the drive to give the Jews a homeland in ancient Israel’s geographical location. This Truman did, overriding objections by his secretary of state and all other naysayers’ objections. It is obvious, even to skeptics, that America has been immensely blessed through championing modern Israel’s right to exist.

Just as when Barack Obama became president and showed disrespect and even disdain for Netanyahu and Israel, the new president, Joe Biden, has opted to put America’s relationship with the Jewish state in question. As a matter of fact, his treatment is seen by many as rude at best and disdainful at worst. The following gives a glimpse of the current president’s attitude.

President Joe Biden is the first American leader in 40 years not to contact Israel’s leaders as one of his first actions in the White House, setting up what could be four years of chilly relations between America and its top Middle East ally.

Biden has already phoned multiple world leaders, including Russian president Vladimir Putin and Chinese president Xi Jinping, but during his 23 days in office has yet to speak with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu—making Biden the first president in modern history to punt on bolstering U.S.-Israel relations during his initial days in office. Every president going back to at least Ronald Reagan in 1981 made contact with their Israeli counterpart within a week of assuming office, according to a review of news reports.

Congressional foreign policy leaders slammed Biden’s Netanyahu snub, prompting a flurry of questions for White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has declined to disclose when or if Biden will call the Israeli leader. Psaki also said on Friday the White House would not list Israel as a U.S. ally when asked about the relationship during her daily press briefing. (“Biden Makes History: First President in 40 Years to Punt on Contacting Israel – White House doesn’t list Israel as American ally,” Washington Free Beacon, February 14, 2021)

The report gives facts about Israel’s ties to America. For example, modern presidents going back to Reagan have almost on the day of assuming office made calls or gotten in contact with Israel. Almost without exception, the messages have included that the US would stand firmly with Israel and its right to nationhood. Biden’s obviously intentional disrespect for Netanyahu and for Israel comes at a time when Israel faces increasing terrorist threats and a bellicose Iran that threatens to produce and use nuclear arms within the very near future.

The report also informs that Biden “also has hired several individuals with a background in anti-Israel activism, including Maher Biter, a top White House National Security Council official who spent his youth organizing boycotts of the Jewish state. The State Department’s Iran envoy, Robert Malley, also has been a vocal critic of Israel.”

When thinking on the growing anti-Semitism across the world and the fact that Iran seems on the brink of becoming a nuclear power, the observer of prophetic stage-setting for soon fulfillment can’t miss the signposts. Israel is indeed in the spotlight of God’s omniscience. His chosen nation is moving swiftly and exactly into the position prophesied by Zechariah millennia ago. In his prophecy is a dire warning for all in authority as heads of nations–including the president of the United States.

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (Zechariah 12: 3)
