“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.
