In the year 1274, and again in 1281, the Mongols under Kublai Khan attempted to invade Japan. Both invasion fleets were destroyed by typhoons. The Japanese called these storms “kamikaze” – “Divine wind.”
In WWII the Japanese attempted to create their own “Divine wind” by using suicide planes and pilots (Kamikaze) to sweep the American fleet from the sea. Unsuccessfully.
Today, the establishment storm against Donald Trump has become a kamikaze attack. The storm that began as ridicule escalated into wild charges and outright lies. Unsuccessfully. It has now become an all-out attempt to prevent President-elect Trump from assuming Office at any cost, from falsely delegitimizing the election via the CIA to subverting the Electoral College to actual mainstream calls for outright assassination.
The establishment is willing to risk civil war, even nuclear war, in a “rule or ruin” campaign to stop Trump and save their agenda.
Trending: Civility has Left the Building
I entered “Trump assassination” into my Google search engine and came up with 12,400,000 results in 0.48 seconds. I imagine that somewhere in there are real threats, or reports of real threats elsewhere, such as on Twitter.
One-World liberals in government, business, academia, Hollywood, the media and elsewhere are now engaged in a desperate, fanatical “victory or death” attack on the Presidency of Donald Trump. If they fail politically, they die politically. And if some dark cabal, or poor fool, succeeds literally, the nation we know will most likely die literally.
These assassination threats are against the law. It is illegal to threaten the life of anyone being protected by the Secret Service – such as the President-elect. The same goes for inciting others to do so, as is being widely and wildly done. But since we are living in a partially lawless land, and since those in charge of enforcing the law are those who have made it lawless, the threats continue to escalate.
I suppose you could call Presidential assassination an unfortunate American tradition. To paraphrase a line from the movie “Miracle on 34-th Street,” “You’ve heard of the English Nation and the French Nation? Well, this could be the Assassin Nation.” The assassinations of Abraham Lincoln (1865), James Garfield (1881), William McKinley (1901) and John F. Kennedy (1963), plus unsuccessful attempts (for example Ronald Reagan (1981)) are all in our wake.
The nation survived these assassinations. But it is not clear the nation would survive the assassination of President Trump. The “protesters” this time would not be stupid people who burn down their own neighborhoods, but smart people who would burn down the enemy’s neighborhood.
Assassinations can have terrible, disproportionate consequences. In 1914 the assassination Archduke Ferdinand, the nephew of Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria-Hungary, sent the western world careening into WWI; the “War to End War” – that didn’t. An American civil war today would probably be so destabilizing as to send the world into WWIII. Possibly the United States military would prevent this situation from developing, but I hope we do not get to find out.
So what can be done? For those seemingly powerless, like myself, I can see only two answers to this question: 1) not a damn thing; 2) pray.
That’s it?! Yes, that’s it.
As it says in the song:
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.
There is no earthly reason Donald Trump should have travelled safe thus far, so it looks like God is with him. What we can do now is pray that He leads President-elect Trump, and us, safely home.Tags: Donald Trump
