"Let us not forget that among the results to be obtained by removing Benedict XVI and promoting a “springtime of the Church,” John Podesta’s emails listed precisely a change in morality with the introduction of “gender equality,” a hypocritical euphemism behind which the U.N. Agenda 2030 hides the normalization of transsexualism, sodomy, and pedophilia, as well as the destruction by divorce of the natural family composed of man and woman."
No, Supporting Trump Is Not ‘Idol Worship’ By Susan D. Harris
I am tired of hearing that impassioned support for former president Donald Trump means that one worships him as his savior and hails him as his king. Personally, I interpret such accusations as an attack on my faith. What’s more, it’s a cheap and easy shot to the Achilles heel of a Christian to accuse him of violating a biblical commandment, and it needs to be called out as the dirty fighting that it is.
Do you want to know why Trump-supporters feel as strongly as they do? Because in their hearts, they believe that if Trump had remained as the 45th president of the United States through to the present day, the following would not have happened:
A tragic withdrawal from Afghanistan, with 9,000 Americans reportedly left behind along with billions of dollars of equipment that appears to have made it to... Hamas in Gaza, that then perpetrated a historic massacre and subsequent attacks in Israel with the help of... Iran, who recently received billions of dollars via frozen assets thanks to the Biden administration. (As Rep. Cory Mills, R-Fla., wrote on X: “This pattern is clear: each time funds are released to Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism, proxy militias in the region persistently launch attacks, aiming to destabilize and target Western allies and Americans.) And of course there’s the Russian invasion of Ukraine that has so far led to more than 500,000 deaths and, as of September 2023, more than $75 billion in U.S. taxpayer dollars sent to a corrupt regime. Let’s not forget record-setting opioid deaths in the United States, likely impacted by...
Uncontrolled immigration (including drug cartels) at America’s borders that is contributing to a... Rise in crime as millions of illegal aliens are flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border. That also leads to... Rising costs for taxpayers, who are already struggling to pay for homes, health insurance, food, gas, and oil heat in the northeast. People are pretty much struggling financially across the board, some just barely able to afford a car to get them to the job that provides the food and keeps a roof over their head. It’s time to recall some of the origins of Trump-worship allegations.
In 2017, writer Rod Dreher wrote “Christians Tempted by Trump Idolatry.” It was a scathing rebuke of Christians who supported Trump and would be the first of many Dreher articles and blog posts attacking the president and his supporters. In it he quoted his book, The Benedict Option:
Though Donald Trump won the presidency in part with the strong support of Catholics and Evangelicals, the idea that the robustly vulgar, fiercely combative, and morally compromised as Trump will be an avatar for the restoration of Christian morality and social unity is beyond delusional. He is not a solution to America’s cultural decline, but a symptom of it.
He then accused Christians of making “a false idol of politics” itself, then charged Christians of the previous generation with focusing too much on politics while mistakenly believing that “the culture would take care of itself.”
Yet The Benedict Option was, in my estimation, largely successful due to being embraced by various Christian factions who felt that the book vindicated their decades-long silence as they clung to the peripheries of a troubled society — even as they’d watched the “moral majority” positively impact the culture. Though the organization formed by Rev. Jerry Falwell lasted but ten years, the impact of that mainstream Protestant movement was perpetuated by the civil actions of millions of Americans of diverse faiths, the effects of which can still be seen today. It was undeniably successful in advancing conservative social values, a strong national defense, a pro-America pathway that led to the election of Ronald Reagan, and anti-communist policies that led to the fall of the Berlin wall, impacting millions of lives beyond our borders. It also cemented a foreign policy that would never leave Israel’s side.
Despite all this, Dreher chose to blame that time and those Americans as “one reason the contemporary church is in so much trouble.” It took but a few pages in Dreher’s book to fully encapsulate the creed of the anti-Trumpers as he set the precedent for all “j’accuse” attacks to be couched in the context of idol worship, thus giving Trump-hating Christians lawful permission to throw their Trump-loving brethren under the Roman chariot wheels.
In 2021, black author and theologian Esau McCauley wrote an article accusing “white, conservative Christians” of weakening the church because they dared to question election results. Using a strategy similar to Dreher’s, McCauley compared the folks at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, to the legions controlled by Pontius Pilate, the man who ultimately ordered the crucifixion of Jesus.
More recently, a Washington Post exegesis declared: “Trump as Jesus? Why he casts himself as a martyr, and why fans go along.” The writer mocked a cartoon that showed Jesus Christ sitting next to Trump in a courtroom. (The Post failed to mention that the Trump-supporter who posted the drawing was Dom Lucre, AKA Dominick McGee, a black American, entrepreneur, and conservative influencer.) The caption on the drawing read, “This is the most accurate court sketch of all time. Because nobody could have made it this far alone.” In a touching public recognition that his faith was giving him strength, Trump re-posted the drawing.
But that’s not how critics saw it. The Washington Post wrote, “To protect his incredibly fragile ego, he needs to create this victimization. ... That’s where the martyrdom comes in.”
The list of unchallenged accusations and vitriolic mocking of Trump is never-ending. But I can assure you of this: millions of people across America...the ones with “Trump 2020” still painted on the side of their barns and “Trump 2024” signs scotch-taped to apartment windows...they know the difference between whom they vote for and whom they worship.
They wanted Trump because they didn’t want to see what the world looked like without the leadership of a strong America. They wanted Trump because they cared about our military and our veterans, the Constitution, free speech, American sovereignty, and strong borders. They cared about preserving lives in Afghanistan, Ukraine, and Israel. And as selfish as it may sound, they wanted a strong economy that could support their families and maybe even help them prosper. They didn’t want to see the suffering of humanity that we are seeing now — from the streets of New York and L.A. to Kibbutz Be’eri to Mariupol, history will show that Trump-supporters hoped to prevent, or at least delay, the worlds’ descent into madness.
My parents taught me that it was my Christian responsibility to be involved in the culture, not to hide from it. Subsequently, that meant being politically active, even if it was only to cast an informed ballot, be it at the local or the federal level. Yet there will never be anyone higher in rank to me than my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Maybe instead of continuing to hammer Christians with the accusation that their Trump-support is idol worship, critics should take a repentant look at lives lost in a world on fire — and introspectively consider what role their voice played in the resulting carnage.

TRUMP: "The judge already knows what he's gonna do. He’s a Democrat judge. In all fairness to him, he has no choice --- he has no choice. He’s run by the Democrats."
"What's going on here is a shame! Our whole system is corrupt!"

The following is a transcript of this video.
Since the birth of civilization, tyrannical rulers have plagued mankind. Driven by an insatiable appetite for power such individuals have done their best to control both the minds and bodies of their subjects. Seen in this light, the history of civilization is very much a history of varying degrees of human enslavement.
Especially in the case of more authoritarian regimes, it has been common to assume that the masses are purely victims in their enslavement, unable to mount any form of resistance due to the threat of force wielded by those in power. In the 16th century, the French philosopher Etienne de La Boétie challenged this view in his essay The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude. All governments, he argued, including the most tyrannical, can only rule for extended durations if they have the general support of the populace. Not only are those in power vastly outnumbered by those over whom they rule, but governments rely on the subjugated populations to provide them with a continual supply of resources and manpower. If one day enough people refused to obey and stopped surrendering their wealth and property, their oppressors would, in the words of La Boétie, “become naked and undone and as nothing, just as, when the root receives no nourishment, the branch withers and dies.” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude) Hence mass submission to even the most oppressive political regimes is always a voluntary servitude, one based on popular consent. As de La Boétie explains:
“Obviously there is no need of fighting to overcome this single tyrant, for he is automatically defeated if the country refuses consent to its own enslavement: it is not necessary to deprive him of anything, but simply to give him nothing; there is no need that the country make an effort to do anything for itself provided it does nothing against itself. It is therefore the inhabitants themselves who permit, or, rather, bring about, their own subjection, since by ceasing to submit they would put an end to their servitude. A people enslaves itself, cuts its own throat, when, having a choice between being vassals and being free men, it deserts its liberties and takes on the yoke, gives consent to its own misery, or, rather, apparently welcomes it.” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)
In this video we’ll explore La Boétie’s insights as to why people throughout history, and into the modern day, have acted against their best interests and consented to their enslavement.
Most animals display a natural instinct to be free. When an attempt is made to capture an animal, it flees in terror or else reacts with fierce aggression. When taken from its natural habitat and placed in captivity, its innate vigor atrophies and is replaced by lethargy and despondency. The successful domestication of a species, therefore, usually requires numerous generations of selective breeding in order to eradicate the animal’s instinct to roam and live free. La Boétie asserts that in human beings this instinct for freedom is especially pronounced. Various social factors, however, have atrophied this natural instinct over time, to the point where now “the very love of liberty no longer seems natural” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)
One of these factors, according to La Boétie, is “the powerful influence of custom”, or in other words, our tendency to become habituated to the social and political conditions we were born into. Just as an animal born in captivity knows nothing of the freedom it lacks and hence does not resist its chains, so too those born into State slavery lack the knowledge of what it means to be free, and thus tend to accept their servitude as if it were natural. When one spends their formative years observing those around them not resisting their oppressors, but accepting them, and even adoring them the effects of custom tend to override the natural instinct for freedom, and submission becomes habitual. This socialization into State slavery is analogous to the story of the ancient King Mithridates who was said to have habituated himself to poison by drinking small amounts over a long period of time: “Like him”, writes La Boétie, “we learn to swallow, and not to find bitter, the venom of servitude.” (Étienne de La Boétie) Or as he further explains:
“It is true that in the beginning men submit under constraint and by force; but those who come after them obey without regret and perform willingly what their predecessors had done because they had to. This is why men born under the yoke and then nourished and reared in slavery are content, without further effort, to live in their native circumstance, unaware of any other state or right, and considering as quite natural the condition into which they were born.” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)
But custom alone does not account for the readiness with which people consent to their servitude, as ruling classes have long known that to maintain power they must play an active role in engineering consent. “Plays, farces, spectacles, gladiators, strange beasts, medals, pictures, and other such opiates, these were for ancient peoples the bait toward slavery, the price of their liberty, the instruments of tyranny.” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude) In the modern day these instruments of tyranny have changed form, but their essence remains the same. The endless supply of mindless diversions provided by the mass media and entertainment industry, the numbing effects of pharmaceutical drugs, and the dramatic farce of political elections all serve to distract the attention of the populace away from the reality of their enslavement.
Another tactic for engineering consent used by ancient tyrants was analogous to what we call the welfare state today. La Boétie notes that on select days of the year ruling classes used to distribute bread, wine, and a little bit of money to their subjects, and soon after those who were content and satiated would cry out “Long live the King!”:
“The fools did not realize”, La Boétie writes, “that they were merely recovering a portion of their own property, and that their ruler could not have given them what they were receiving without having first taken it from them.”(Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)
But the proverbial bread and circuses are not the only instruments of tyranny, for ruling classes have long attempted to evoke not only the consent, but the adoration and reverence of their subjects by co-opting techniques used by religions to make their authority appear sacred. Myths, rituals, the use of religious and cult symbolism, and the construction of buildings symbolizing power and authority and resembling places of worship, have long been used by ruling classes to borrow, in the words of La Boétie, “a stray bit of divinity to bolster up their evil ways.”(Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)
Despite the fact that voluntary servitude to a political ruling class has been the norm throughout history, La Boétie does not consider it inevitable that this situation will continue indefinitely. For just as there have always existed those who seek to rule and exploit others, so too in all ages there exist individuals who instinctively rebel against any form of servitude and thus are tortured by the chains which others appear not to notice. “Even if liberty had entirely perished from the earth”, La Boétie notes, “such men would have to invent it. For them slavery has no satisfactions, no matter how well disguised.” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude) Those who comprise this elite vanguard of freedom devote much of their time to educating themselves and developing their critical capacities for the sake of awakening others to the nefarious and deceptive nature of political rule. This work is done in the realization that if a critical mass becomes aware of their enslavement and of the true value of freedom, voluntary servitude, on a mass scale, will end quite abruptly, for as La Boétie explains:
“From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action but merely by willing to be free. Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces.” (Étienne de La Boétie, The Discourse on Voluntary Servitude)

That the Nazis never went away, they went underground with the help of the corrupt fake Jewish bankers/bloodline families from Prussia who'd managed by financial means to gain control of over a dozen top Western countries by the end of the First World War, and they've been the enforcement arm of the Shadow Cabal ever since.
They were never really defeated, once they'd served their purpose for their real masters, they were 'repurposed'.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
I ain't even gonna touch on the small very technologically advanced elite underground civilization that actually runs the world and is responsible for much of the UFO activity.
Oh and they're all Satanists who worship Lucifer.
The # of people who'd have thought anyone saying this in 2017 was a raving lunatic was probably around 90%.
Now its probably only around 75%. We still have a long way to go in this Great Awakening.
