Sharpening the Iron of the Church

Impeachment Deception


I want to be clear about some things before I make the remarks to follow. You are more than welcome to disagree and call me any kind of crackpot you want. 

I am not a Republican. I did not support, nor did I vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.  There were just too many issues I had with the man. They were not policy issues, but character issues.  Let that explanation suffice. However, he was duly elected by the constitutional process and as such my hopes for his success and respect for the republic we were given by our founders, I have had the highest hopes for his success as President.  For his success directly affects the well being of me and my family. 

I am not a Democrat.  There is nothing in the Democratic platform I can support, the most basic of which is their disdain for human life. In my humble opinion, the “give everything away” ideology is little more than a voter delivery system and will, if instituted, bankrupt the nation and destroy many of the God-given liberties we have enjoyed if by no other means than by the massive regulatory plans the party espouses. 

I am an Independent voter. That means that I vote for specific policies, specific character and specific evidence of personal integrity. I do not vote out of fear. I do not believe my vote is “wasted” when I vote for a candidate that though he or she might have little expectation of prevailing, represents a set of values that most closely represent my own. It is because the American voter has been duped into accepting the merits of voting for the lesser of two evils that we have the mess in Washington we do. Many of those who voted in 2016 did not vote for Trump as much as they were voting against Hillary Clinton. I consider myself a patriotic American and my vote has far greater value to me than to cast it as an act of expediency rather than making a real choice for the things most important for me.  

The Impeachment process is not about removing the sitting President of the United States. It is about the overthrow of the United States Government.

All of that being said, I want to say this: The Impeachment process currently underway is not about removing the sitting President of the United States. It is about the overthrow of the United States government. It is about the dissolution of the American way of life, the dissipating of the liberties we have enjoyed as Americans since the Constitution was ratified on June 21, 1788.  Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent, you need to be worried that my observations might be true. 

The American public is slowly being transformed from a nation of hard-working, immensely creative dreamers who came to this country believing that if they worked hard enough and were adventurous enough to dream and pursue those dreams they could accomplish great things, into a nation of entitled dependents who are willing to submit to pervasive regulation and debilitating entitlement programs which though they have been labeled as “free”,  carry a cost that will someday prove too burdensome for anyone to bear. 

From the beginning, I declared that I am not a fan of Donald Trump, the man. I feel no obligation to share all of the reasons why.  However, if you believe the process going on in the basement of the Capitol Building to be anything other than an attempt to destabilize the government of the United States and push us toward a socialistic nightmare––you’re not paying attention. The process is illegitimate because the motives are illegitimate. This plan was laid in the moments after it became clear that Hillary Clinton had not been elected and Donald Trump was going to be our President. The facts of this are public knowledge.  

Before the election, the Democratic Party demanded a signed acknowledgment from Mr. Trump that he would accept the outcome of the election, that he would not contest the election results when he lost. The problem is he didn’t lose. When the unthinkable happened, when the unimaginable result of the 2016 election was clear, it became obvious that the Democratic Party had no intention of accepting the outcome of the election, and machinery to overturn the will of the voters was put into motion. Many, many people who hate Donald Trump have cheered these efforts, seemingly with no idea whatsoever what disaster would follow such actions.  If you support this process you are either blinded by your distaste for the man or complicit in the desire to see a completely different America than has ever existed.  

I believe that if the Democratic Party ever gets back into power we will see the end of our republican form of government. The First Amendment, the Second Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment will be repealed. Perhaps the entire Constitution will be cast aside. The electoral college will be abandoned and all future elections will be determined by Southern California and New York City. Rural America will no longer have a voice in the election of our leaders.  A self-appointed and self-perpetuating government will emerge and the God-ordained rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness will die a painful death. The socialistic, progressives who seek to gain power today will never allow another “Trump.” 

In all honesty, I have only a little bit more faith in the Republican Party to preserve our liberties long term.  As a theologian who looks at the world and the future through the lens of the Scriptures, I am bound to observe that our nation along with the other nations of the world will at some point collapse into chaos, the drive toward a global government will assume greater and greater influence and the specter of the blue helmets of the United Nations patrolling our streets, implementing and enforcing the laws of a “world government” will become a reality.  Those who resist will be committed to re-education camps and the influence of the church will be met with brute force. This collapse is already beginning in my own beloved country. It is only a matter of time. 

I know some of you absolutely detest Donald Trump. There is nothing more you would like than to have him removed from office. But at what cost? That is the question. There is far more at stake here than having a man in office that I don’t like.  The proceedings in Washington today having nothing to do with right or wrong, quid pro quo, or investigating political opponents.  These events are occurring because Trump’s opponents do not believe they can defeat him in 2020. The only option that remains is to mount a coup d’é·tat.

I predicted several years ago that America was headed down a road that would render us as little more than a third rate banana republic with strong-man leaders and government by coup and assassination.  We’re almost there. 

You are free to agree with these opinions, but regardless of which side of the political fence you sit on you need to do an honest assessment of what’s really going on in our Capitol today. It may happen and there will be great joy in the basement rooms and back halls of Congress, but believe me, you will not like the outcome if this impeachment deception is successful.

    These words seem like they came out of a well that was underground in the depths of my own soul for weeks now, but where I had only a vague unease- a sense of displeasure that justice had gone far awry- Michael has dissipated any possible complacency about the Impeachment hearings. I see it now for what it is. I am so afraid for us. I am asking God to awaken the Patriot nation who we once were. I am pleading with people to read his words, and for God to open the eyes of the people of this great nation.

    I too pray that patriotic people of this country will heed the words shared here and absorbe their chilling truth. It is almost too late.

    I for one am truly frightened for our country, our people, especially our children who will have to wonder how this happened, was it this bad in the past (NO) and the many why’s. One of the biggest reasons I believe this is happening is because we are NOT taking heed to God’s word, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from there wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 Until and unless we do this, Satan will continue to have a hayday in our land.

    I agree wholeheartedly Mike. Our president has been scrutinized since day one of office. Should have been trying to work with him instead of against him. I’m scared for our nation and the generations that follow us. The people in offices need to get their Bibles present at every meeting, open them and follow what our Savior says. What a great, and blessed nation this could be if God was at the center.

    I agree totally with Mr. Gantt. Pray that everyone will open their BIBLES and do some serious studying of GOD’S word and start PRAYING that this will not happen. “GOD BLESS ALL”

    I too am not a fan of the character of Pres. Trump. But, I feel that you, & others, that did not vote for him because of that almost got Hillary Clinton elected. Unfortunately we do need to vote for the lesser of 2 evils at times. I shudder to think where our country would be in Clinton had been elected! Donald Trump was not elected because of his spotless moral record. He was elected because he was seen as the 1 who was interested in helping America get back on track. Looking @ the Democratic possibilities for 2020 it will be another election where the people of this country will be faced with voting for the lesser of 2 evils. We can vote for a man that has done great things for America for 4 years or someone that delights in murdering the unborn until birth & some are in favor of even after birth. The choice will be ours. Vote wisely. A vote for a person that has no chance of winning will be a vote for a Democratic murderer.

    Having voted in 2016 for neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton, I have been waiting to hear from our public servants to testify under oath before our Impeachment Hearings.

    Being retired, I was able to listen to the testimony of our long serving Diplomats & public servants. I believe these men & women to be loyal patriots, who honorably recounted the events in question before Congress. I found their manner reflected a depth of character.

    I do not approve of character assassination as a fruitful way of revealing the truth. Since a young adult, I have believed such behavior reflects more about the accuser than the intended target. Unfortunately, we have seen a rise in the practice of ‘ends justifying means’.

    Now, with regard to the well being of the United States at large, I see little benefit to the removal of our President from office. Even as it was unwelcome testimony from US officials, inappropriate use of office, I expect we would not see our contentiousness toward our neighbors diminish. Yet, we cannot condone such a failure of character.

    Earlier this week, I came to the conclusion that the best course of action is for the Senate to censure our President for his abuse of office. We cannot condone such violations of law, despite whatever good has been demonstrated elsewhere. We do not evaluate guilt by weighing other achievements. America must remain one nation under God & the law.

    Censure will render a verdict: guilt of a specific wrong doing, improper use of office, yet provides no punishment other than a reprimand. In doing so, we will uphold our principle that no one is above the law, reassert Congressional oversight, while demonstrating mercy.

      You show the same concerns as I have. I to believe impeachment may cause more harm than having him in office for another year. I’ve never been a supporter of this President based on his past history and the fact he has never had a plan which falls in line with the current Republican Party. While some express concerns with where the Democrats may take us the ideology of the gop is so closely aligned with fascism I’ll continue to support the Dems.

    I had thought of finding a DEM candidate, but when I do I get to thinking of it being a vote against Mr. Trump. I want to vote ‘for’, not ‘against’. At present, I plan to vote for Gov. Weld in the primary, and again in the general election. He had support of both parties while in office, a mean feat in MA. He’s the only candidate I so far see that meets the high bar of the President.

    To institute an elite ruling class has been the goal all along..for both parties. We have been in a downward slide towards this end for decades. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    I love Donald Trump! He is pro-life, pro legal immigration, pro religion, pro second amendment and a patriot. I don’t care about his past life style. I have one myself and it is under the blood of Jesus, as is his. I believe it was Dr.Dobson that said that he personally knows the Pastor that brought President Trump to the Lord and also said that Christians are the worse people for not granting forgiveness to other Christians! Am I perfect after 40 years of being a born again Christian. No!

    I have read Jonathan Cahn’s book, The Paradiym. Donald Trump was clearly put in office by the Lord Himself to give the church a window to repent and turn back to God.. It is up to the church to get out of its theologian mold and start making disciples of all men. What good does it do the church if we know the bible from one end to the other but can’t lead someone to Christ. He is God’s chosen one for such a time as we find ourselves in. Think about who is in the blood line of JesusI ie. King David, Tamar, Rahab, the list goes on. I am voting for president Trump again. The choice is clear.

    i believe It will be proven that the so-called public servants testifying in this so-called impeachment are actually deep-state beauracrats who thought it was their job to make national security policy instead of following the command of the president. Who, according to the constitution, is the only one with that responsibility. Fiona Hill, formerly worked for globalist George Soros. Listen to them. I thought, I perceived, I was under the impression. No evidence! We need eyes to see and ears to hear.

    So now you have a choice. You can vote for Trump of you can vote to go down the dark path of the Dems the path to evil. I wasn’t happy with Trump the person but I had enough brain’s to tell the difference between right and wrong. If you weren’t such a hater you would have listened too what he was saying you would have found out that everything he said was spot on with everything good. That’ sad. I’m not an Einstein but I had the since to at least lesson to him. Not voting for Trump is a vote too go down that dark path with the Dems.

    • Mr. Elbrect,

      I have approved your comment as I always allow for a difference of opinion. However, I must say comments like yours are classic example of why it is almost impossible to have a reasonable discussion in our current cultural climate. We read/listen to respond, not to understand. You clearly missed the point of my post, and I think it is an important one. I did not write this piece either to support or oppose Mr. Trump. He actually has little to nothing to do with my point which is: This entire process of Impeachment is a joke, and it makes a mockery of the intentions of the founding fathers and the framers of the constitution of the United States. The purpose of impeachment is to prosecute criminal actions by the President, not as a means of resisting the outcome of a duly effected election. Whether I like Mr. Trump or not – has no bearing on my opinion regarding this clearly politicized operation aimed at overturning the results of the 2016 election. I mentioned that I did not vote for Mr. Trump in 2016, not to encourage others to follow my example, but in hopes of establishing that I wasn’t writing a piece in a partisan frame of mind. I wanted to establish that it was written not as a friend or foe of the President, but as an American who is gravely offended by petty politics as os being demonstrated by this House effort to impeach.

      You also resort to tactics very similar to the left-wingers that you apparently despise so greatly, by immediately suggesting that I don’t have a brain because I have opinions that are different from yours. That is insulting coming from anyone, especially from someone who “can tell the difference between right and wrong.” Because I did not vote for Mr. Trump in 2016 does not automatically mean I won’t vote for him in 2020. (Read my article, https://mkgantt.com/trump-won-my-vote-tonight/).

      One final note: I have still have some very real issues with Mr. Trumps bombastic manner and abrasive character honed from many years in the business world, and I believe he could win much more of the nation to his side if he would abandon some of his very alienating rhetoric and spend more time winning over than punching back. I view the world through the lens of the Scriptures, and there are many testimonies to Mr. Trump’s turning to Christ. I just wish some of his spiritual advisors would instruct him on the Biblica way of responding to our enemies. He clearly has not received such counsel. From my point of view, it is more important to extend the Kingdom of Heaven than to save America. And finally, one is not a “hater” because he is concerned about character issues in another person. A hater has an irrational desire to denigrate and destroy those with whom he disagrees or by whom he feels injured or disrespected. I do not “hate” Mr. Trump – I have nothing but wishes and prayers for his great success. I believe that a more Christ-like display of character would stand in good stead with the President and with the country. I suggest you go back to the article and read it again, not for the purpose of disagreement – but for understanding. You will see that it was not a hack job on the President, but a plea for civility in our government.

      Having said all of that, thank you for your response and for sharing your opinion on my blog. Wishes for a great day.

  13. Application of the wisdom of the world produces a culture of spiritual darkness.

    “But if you harbor bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast in it or deny the truth. Such wisdom does not come from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every evil practice.” James 3:14-16
