Dobbs Gets a Bit Carried Away

I wonder. Matthew 24: 23,24 says: “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there, believe it not.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, so that if it were possible, they should deceive the very elect. (1599 Geneva Bible)

Trump is a man, nothing more. I’m not even suggesting he is a false Christ or false prophet. He is just a man.

Fox News anchor, Lou Dobbs, says that Trump is the only person big enough to take on the “rigged system” in Washington, that he is big enough to stand up to the Media Giants that control the media. He is wrong on both accounts. He either lacks understanding of the “rigged system” and surely would he put down the media conglomerate of which he willingly partakes and receives compensation from? Only if he is an idiot.

Dobbs says that “Trumpence” has completely changed the political and campaign establishment all by himself. If it were only that easy.

Make no mistake about the fact that Trump could never “take on the rigged system” of politics in Washington, D.C. and live. Nobody else has ever been successful, even when taking on one or two sacred cows, i.e. ridding the nation of Federal Reserve Notes, ending a Ruling Establishment sanctioned war, to name only two. Or how about the many that have gone before who “knew too much?”

Believe what you will….you will anyway. It may prove so in the end, but if Trump were the great “rogue” leader that this country is looking for, as Mr. Dobbs points out, and he lives, he will be no different than any of the rest of those who came before him. That’s the real power at work. Rhetoric and talking points, that have no meaning in the actual scheme of things, is what drives campaigns. When’s the last time you remember some great campaigner promising anything that resulted the way it was promised?

The same Power that decides who will be president is the same Power that controls the media, of which Dobbs is a part of. All the powers and connected at the head. He still has his job and so he is a willing participant of the controlled opposition which is Fox News. Donald Trump and all his men and horses couldn’t hold a candle to the power of the Media, no more than he could change the power structure of the “rigged system” that controls Washington.

Trumpence, like Obama, like Bush, Like Clinton, like Reagan and all those who came before, tell you and I what we want to hear. They know we are willing participants of the false paradigm of left and right. The know what to say and when to say it. They know how you will act and react. They trained you from birth. You are their slave. They know your false vote doesn’t matter – a vote that you have been taught matters. They are too powerful and control too much.

I hope readers saw the picture and caption I posted the other day from Mark Twain. The caption read, “If voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it.” We all laugh because Twain is a humorist. Whether he actually knew this or not, I don’t know. But, it is so true. We’ve been conditioned to believe otherwise.

When a news anchor, it matters not who they are because they have a captured audience, tells us to look over here or look over there, there is someone, a gOD mAN or a gOD wOMAN, a true leader, a patriot, a person the world is waiting for, I would take the advice in Matthew 24 and go the other way.
