The Empire Strikes Back
Commentary on the News
Friday, March 10, 2017
Alf Cengia

The Empire strikes back. They say power is like a drug. Once one has had a good taste, it can be difficult to give up. The following is my opinion and subject to fair criticism.

When the presidential candidates lined up in 2008 some had reservations about Junior Senator Obama. He came out of nowhere to become the Democrat Nominee. Contra claims that criticism was driven by racism; cursory checks of his ideology were what raised concerns.

Ironically, many who invoked the racist card had no hesitation in going after conservative black politicians. The racist tag is a political strategy routinely used by the Left.

Those who bothered checking Senator Obama's past affiliations weren't entirely surprised at what he achieved over his tenure. For example, there was his long association with the problematic Jeremiah Wright.

See also Caroline Glick's summary Obama's Transparent Presidency:

President Barack Obama promised that his would be the most transparent administration in US history. And the truth is, it was. At least in relation to his policies toward the Muslim world, Obama told us precisely what he intended to do and then he did it. (Emphasis mine)

What's really surprising is just how much of his agenda was able to successfully implement throughout the term of his administration.

Among other things, Obama championed same-sex marriage, transgender and women's rights (abortion). He worked to make it possible for biological "female gender" males to use the same bathroom little girls use. The Obama administration also instigated racial tension.

While the dynamics of the Arab Winter were in place before Obama took office, his small US footprint policy helped it along. His courtship of Rouhani and Putin assisted the latter in achieving goals not possible before. Obama was and is a change-agent.

On the other hand I was dead wrong about Donald Trump. I suspected he was indulging a whim at best, and would eventually drop out of the presidential race. I had a list of suspicions about his motives - his past Democrat affiliations etc. In retrospect, modern Democrats have moved so far left they make the older variety appear conservative.

What I now see, from my limited perspective, is a flawed Donald Trump (aren't we all?) who sincerely loves his country and is trying to do the right thing. The Left sees an obstructer to its goals.

The Obama Empire had its taste of power. But the Trump win was a severe and unforeseen head-blow to its Leftist agenda. The nature of Barack Obama's make-up now compels him to strike back and stay in the game in tangible form. Obama is like Gollum in The Lord of the Rings: he misses his Precious and desperately wants it back.

Daniel Greenfield noted in November 2016:

...Obama is not a conventional politician. He’s an organizer and a campaigner at the vanguard of a radical movement that seeks to control traditional institutions, but doesn’t feel bound by them. Unlike Bill Clinton, his plans don’t begin and end with the White House. As an organizer, Obama is equipped to build bases of power outside traditional institutions. And that is exactly what he is doing.

Greenfield followed up on the current state of play with layers of the previous administration which form the current "Deep-State" in a recent post:

There is now a President and an Anti-President. A government and a shadow government. The anti-President controls more of the government through his shadow government than the real President.

Skeptics will scoff. However we're already seeing the "resistance" rallying against Trump, post hand-wringing meltdown. There are organized and well funded rallies. The smarting media is striking back. While it largely ignored the reality anti-Semitism over the last eight years, it now has Trump to blame. The troops are in formation.

The Leftist Empire would like him to be removed before the end of his term. It has a far-reaching support base. Not only do the media, educational institutions and European globalists empathize with the previous administration, but so do many Christians.

I monitor social media chatter from a range of popular "progressive Christians." Many are ministers yet the biblical gospel is missing from their conversation. They promote a sinless social-justice gospel. The majority of their attention is focused against Trump's faults, and their perception of conservative Christians.

The previous administration was decidedly anti-Christian. It exorcised the expression of Christian beliefs from government institutions and in the public arena. I'm not attempting to validate Trump's profession of Christianity. But his administration is far more sympathetic to Christian public expression than Obama's ever was.

The next four years will be a torrid battle field for the Trump Administration. However, the true nature of this battle is spiritual and perfectly stated in Ephesians 6:12.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Daniel 2:34 speaks of a stone, not made by human hands, which strikes the statue in Nebuchadnezzar's dream. Michael Vlach notes that: 'The "stone" that "was cut out without hands" is undoubtedly God's kingdom...'

The Leftist Empire may be striking back, but it will only succeed as permitted by a sovereign God. All earthly political kingdoms will one day answer to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" Rev 11:15

Is that a comforting thought for you? It is to me.

Maranatha
