The President of the United States*

Don’t ignore the small print.

* It was the most unusual inauguration ceremony in American history. The area around Capitol Hill almost looked like a ghost town. Roads were barricaded. Stores were boarded up. Military vehicles patrolled the streets. National Guardsmen stopped people at checkpoints for proof of identification. Twenty-five thousand vetted, loyalist soldiers guarded miles of barbed-wire fencing. And inside, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into office in a staged event that attracted only a few hundred supporters. It looked like something from a Third World banana republic under martial law.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the oath of office to Joe Biden, and the new president gave an inaugural address on “unity” and “democracy.” His speech couldn’t have been more ironic. It was claimed that all the security measures were necessary to prevent insurrectionists from dividing the nation and subverting democracy. The real reason for the security was that radical Democrats had divided the nation by subverting democracy and seizing power. They know it, America knows it, and much of the world knows it.

We know there was voter fraud. We know it was extensive. We know it was organized. And we know there was someone behind it who had the power, motive and gall to commit the greatest electoral steal in history. And Joe Biden knows all this too.

Joe Biden’s inauguration was the culmination of a massive “deep state” plot to destroy Donald Trump—and empower Biden’s boss, Barack Obama.

Art of the Steal

In an October 2020 interview, Joe Biden said, “We have put together … the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” He obviously did not intend to say that, but it’s hard to ignore the comment when extensive, organized voter fraud is what brought him into office.

Joe Biden supposedly won 12 million more votes than Barack Obama did—millions more votes, in fact, than any candidate in American history. This wasn’t because of an unprecedented swell of enthusiasm for a singularly capable and attractive presidential candidate. It was brought about by careful planning, blatant lawlessness, rank corruption, shameless deceit and pervasive propaganda.

And the most extensive, organized voter fraud organization in the history of American politics wasn’t put together by the guy who accidentally told everybody he put together the most extensive voter fraud organization in the history of politics.

This organization’s main goal was to restore the political machinery of Barack Obama to power. He and his operatives worked furiously during the Trump presidency, during his reelection bid, and especially during the election itself.

Information on the extent of the voter fraud is copious, but one of the better sources is the third volume of Dr. Peter Navarro’s study on electoral fraud. It reveals that 3,069,002 “possible illegal votes” were cast in the swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Mr. Biden’s margin of victory in these six states was a 10th of that—only 312,992 votes.

No reasonable person can honestly conclude the 2020 presidential election was free and fair. And no observant person can honestly figure that it made no difference.

“At this point, we have moved dangerously, in what seems like a nanosecond, from a full and vibrant American democracy to a Communist Chinese-style, cancel-culture police state guarded by a collusive social media oligopoly that is beyond our control,” Dr. Navarro wrote. “If the U.S. Congress and state legislatures across the six battleground states ignore this evidence, they will do so not just at their own peril but also at the peril of America’s faith in our elections and the sanctity of our republic.”

This abrupt transformation was a deliberate strategy enacted by radicals like Barack Obama; deep state agents like former spymasters John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey; oligarchs like George Soros and Mark Zuckerberg; state politicians like Jocelyn Benson and Kathy Boockvar; and operatives like Clinton campaign lawyer Mark Elias. (See the second volume of Dr. Navarro’s study.) To steal this election, people across the Democrat media-Big Tech-electoral fraud complex worked hard.

America’s Reichstag Fire

On Dec. 2, 2020, President Trump delivered what, he said, “may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.” In that 46-minute speech, he denounced “tremendous voter fraud and irregularities which took place during the ridiculously long November 3 elections.” He focused particularly on fraud related to unverified mail-in ballots and digital election rigging.

After this speech, a Quinnipiac University poll of 978 registered voters nationwide found that 77 percent of Republicans believed there was widespread voter fraud during the election, and 34 percent of registered voters thought Biden’s win was illegitimate. That means over 70 million Americans believe the election was stolen.

To call attention to election theft, President Trump supported a “Save America” rally in Washington, D.C., on January 6, the day the Senate met to certify the election results. About 200,000 people gathered in the city to protest election theft. Several dozen of these demonstrators illegally entered the Capitol building. Some chanted “Hang Mike Pence,” some vandalized Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s office, some smashed windows, and some even entered the Senate Chamber. Representatives and senators evacuated for a few hours as police re-secured the building. As one Trump supporter was climbing through a broken window at the Speaker’s Lobby, one U.S. Capitol Police officer fatally shot her.

What a tragedy at the very building that represents the American republic!

Yet this tragedy was not as it seemed. Dozens involved in the Capitol storming were found listed in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Terrorist Screening Database. Some were members of the Oath Keepers’ anti-government militia; others were members of the far-left group Antifa. In fact, video and other evidence indicates that Antifa worsened the Capitol breach—and may have even staged it—to discredit President Trump.

Law enforcement has identified at least two known Antifa members posing as President Trump supporters during the rally. And John Sullivan, a well-known leftist agitator who founded the group Insurrection USA, is seen in several videos. Sullivan can be seen wearing a “President Trump 2020” hat, attempting to whip up the crowd outside the Capitol, then inside the Speaker’s Lobby, and smashing the window where the police had their weapons drawn. And when the officer pulled the trigger and the woman fell to the floor bleeding from the neck, Sullivan was right there. In fact, he immediately began claiming she was dead, even though this probably was not the case at the time and police who were immediately on the scene were saying they could save her. But he was trying to whip up the crowd and make the situation even worse.

Then Sullivan went on camera, including at cnn, to give his account of the violence—without being identified as a leftist agitator.

The violence that Sullivan and others encouraged gave leftist news executives a pretext to portray the violence at the Capitol as an “insurrection” started by President Trump. This despite the fact that President Trump told demonstrators to be peaceful, and as soon as the violence broke out he told them to go home. And despite the fact that these same executives portrayed the summer 2020 Black Lives Matter riots as “mostly peaceful.”

Everyone ought to oppose violence and destruction, and the dishonoring of our Capitol. But no one should be deceived. The Capitol riots do not change the facts about the election. It was stolen!

Some weak-willed lawmakers acted like the violence at the Capitol meant Joe Biden’s “win” was somehow legitimate. Republican senators, like Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and James Lankford of Oklahoma, had promised to object to the certification of Joe Biden’s “victory” on January 6 but then either cowardly declined or were prevented from doing so.

After the protesters were dispersed and Congress resumed, Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas objected to Arizona’s election results. But both houses of Congress voted to overrule their objections. Later, Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania and Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri objected to Pennsylvania’s election results. Again, both houses overruled them. So, at 3:44 a.m. on January 7, Vice President Mike Pence, who himself had declined to intervene, announced that Joe Biden had won the presidency.

The radical Democrats’ ploy worked: Exaggerate and sensationalize a protest hijacked by a handful of rabble-rousers, then use this as a pretext to certify the stealing of a presidency and to amass more power to destroy what is left of the constitutional republic.

The Capitol riot reminds a lot of people of what happened at the Reichstag in 1933: Despite rumors that he himself had helped instigate it, Adolf Hitler used the destruction at Germany’s capitol building to target his enemies and empower himself. The left is using the January 6 riot at the Capitol, whoever was behind it, as America’s Reichstag fire.

Attack on Free Speech

Even before the Capitol riot, radical Democrats began showing us what 21st-century authoritarianism looks like. They were targeting their enemies for censoring, smearing, silencing, boycotting and worse. Then the ugliness at the Capitol gave them an excuse to silence even the most powerful man in the world! Media and technology executives colluded to simultaneously muzzle President Donald Trump. Twitter banned Mr. Trump so his 88 million Twitter followers could no longer read his messages. Facebook shut down his account. Apple, Google, Discord, Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit, Shopify, Snapchat, Stripe, TikTok, Twitch, YouTube and other major platforms banned or restricted his messages and those of his followers in some form. Major television networks refused to broadcast the farewell speech of the president of the United States.

Parler, a social media platform similar to Twitter, insisted on allowing political free speech and refused to engage in Twitter-like political censorship. Apple and Google punished it by blocking it from their app stores, then Amazon shut it down altogether by refusing to allow it to use its servers. Parler went completely offline.

The chief executive officer of Mozilla—maker of Firefox, one of the most popular Web browsers—went further, saying that President Trump and his followers must be monitored throughout the entire Internet.

Now, these corporate liberals are ideologically in step with the White House. The radical left is blotting out free speech, a First Amendment right—and you can be sure this is only the start.

Across mainstream media and politics, Trump supporters are being labeled “domestic terrorists,” to be subject to the agents of America’s vast, intrusive intelligence networks. Sen. Dick Durbin is introducing legislation to classify “Make America Great Again” rallies as “domestic terrorist activity.” Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan said, “Total denunciation of a despot’s legacy is necessary to eradicate any remaining malignancy.” The political director at abc News said authorities must begin “cleansing the movement” associated with President Trump. This is a chilling preview of massive oppression under a Biden administration.

And those powering it are agents of the former Obama administration!

On January 7, former First Lady Michelle Obama wrote a letter to America’s tech companies, saying, “Now is the time for Silicon Valley companies to stop enabling this monstrous behavior—and go even further than they have already by permanently banning this man from their platforms and putting in place policies to prevent their technology from being used by the nation’s leaders to fuel insurrection.”

The next day, the bans started. Nobody voted for Mrs. Obama or the tech executives. But many top media, tech and business leaders are linked to the Obama administration. It is as if Barack Obama is operating a shadow government that exerts its power largely through powerful tech corporations that are part of Americans’ everyday lives.

The Real Coup D’état

After the radical left stuffed ballot boxes with fraudulent ballots, rigged election machines, compromised the vote counting and monitoring processes, exacerbated or helped stage a Capitol riot to discredit President Trump, and colluded with media and tech executives to silence their critics, they began the final stage of the coup d’état against the legitimate, elected government of the United States. They moved to impeach President Trump. Again.

On January 8, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley to ask what she could do to prevent President Donald Trump from accessing nuclear launch codes. Then she attempted to coax Vice President Pence into invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump. When neither effort succeeded, on January 11 she introduced articles of impeachment.

The impeachment case had more than 200 Democratic co-sponsors. They charge President Trump with “incitement of insurrection,” saying he is guilty of “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States” by calling on his supporters to oppose the stealing of the election. Yet even liberal law professor Jonathan Turley noted that President Trump “never actually called for violence or a riot.” Instead, Trump told his supporters “to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” And again, video evidence shows Antifa agitators stirring up the violence.

So, 222 Democrats and 10 Republicans voted to impeach Mr. Trump for a crime he did not commit.

Speaker Pelosi went through with this sham impeachment trial to keep people’s minds focused on the Reichstag fire instead of evidence of voter fraud being uncovered by people like Dr. Navarro.

In a 60 Minutes interview that aired on January 9, Pelosi admitted that a significant motivation for President Trump’s impeachment was to eliminate any chance he has of being elected again. The 14th Amendment says no person who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against “the Constitution of the United States” after having “previously taken an oath” to the Constitution is eligible for public office. Democrats hope they can somehow bar Mr. Trump from ever holding government office again. They still fear him!

This sham is nothing less than a coup against the legitimate winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential election!

Obama 2.0

After Joe Biden got through his paramilitary inauguration ceremony, he got to work dismantling President Trump’s legacy. Biden signed 17 executive orders on his first afternoon in office, sweeping aside President Trump’s pandemic response, environmental plans, economic agenda and immigration policies. He also canceled the permit allowing the Keystone xl pipeline to cross the border from Canada into the United States—a move that destroyed 11,000 jobs and sabotaged America’s strategy for energy independence. He halted construction on America’s border wall with Mexico, which encouraged a caravan of 8,000 Central American migrants to start heading for the United States of America.

Biden’s actions are not reverting America back to the pre-Trump days or even the pre-Obama days. They are plunging it into an unprecedented radicalized future!

On the educational front, the instant he became president Biden deleted the Trump administration’s 1776 Project. This 45-page report was put together under the direction of Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn to restore honesty to the teaching of American history and to show children that the defining fact of the American founding was not slavery, as radicals teach, but freedom. But the Biden administration is deleting U.S. history so it can fulfill Barack Obama’s stated goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

A Nov. 28, 2020, American Spectator article by Freddy Gray points out this significant fact: “[T]he incoming Biden administration is arguably more Obama-ish than the original Obama administration was. In 2008, when Barack won the White House, he was a Washington neophyte who had to contend with the considerable power of the Clintons. His campaign chiefs could only stand aside and gripe as Hillary Clinton, the woman Obama had beaten to become the Democratic nominee, became secretary of state and pushed her allies into the best positions. This time, it’s the Biden campaign people grumbling as Team Obama swoops back in. ‘The Obama staffers are now cutting out the people who got Biden elected,’ an anonymous Biden staffer told Politico this week.”

Yes, Democrats’ main goal was not to have Joe Biden lead a new era of American politics—but to restore the Obama machine to power.

After Barack Obama was reelected president in 2012, my father wrote a startling booklet titled America Under Attack. It revealed that Obama was inspired by the same spirit that has empowered other destructive leaders, particularly the ancient Seleucid King Antiochus Epiphanes. Antiochus obtained the throne through lies. Then he betrayed the people of Judah, over whom he had power, slaughtering them, defiling the temple in Jerusalem with an idol of himself, and attempting to fundamentally transform Jewishness itself.

Like Antiochus Epiphanes, Obama obtained power through deceit, in large part by pretending he was more moderate than he was. But then he became the most biblically hostile president in U.S. history and worked to destroy America’s constitutional system of government and the Judeo-Christian principles upon which the Constitution is based. He succeeded in “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” by dividing its population, packing the judiciary with anti-Constitution judges, and filling the civil service, military and intelligence agencies with deep state bureaucrats personally loyal to him.

The Prophet Daniel said an end-time Antiochus would “cast down the truth to the ground” (Daniel 8:12). America Under Attack explains that there is more than one Antiochus figure at work right now. There is a spiritual Antiochus who “cast down the truth to the ground” inside God’s Church. There is also a political Antiochus who “cast down the truth to the ground” in America.

This astonishing truth is why we at the Trumpet kept an eye on Obama even after he left office. In his article “Barack Obama in Bible Prophecy,” my father wrote that Obama was “at the epicenter of the election crisis and the radical left’s effort to prevent Donald Trump from being reelected!” America’s entire election crisis is all part of a Satan-led movement to “cast down the truth to the ground.”

Blotting Out Israel

Most Christians recognize that the book of Daniel is prophecy. But many do not know that the books of 1 Kings and 2 Kings were also written by prophets (primarily Jeremiah) and are prophecy for the end-time. (Request your free copy of The Former Prophets: How to Become a King.)

Verses 3-6 of 2 Kings 13 explain that in the Prophet Elisha’s lifetime, a deadly enemy attacked the northern kingdom of Israel and almost destroyed it: “And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he delivered them into the hand of Hazael king of Syria, and into the hand of Benhadad the son of Hazael, all their days. And Jehoahaz besought the Lord, and the Lord hearkened unto him: for he saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of Syria oppressed them. (And the Lord gave Israel a saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents, as beforetime. Nevertheless they departed not from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, who made Israel sin, but walked therein: and there remained the grove also in Samaria.)”

God did not allow the Syrians to blot out Israel completely. Verse 5 says, “[T]he Lord gave Israel a saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians ….” And 2 Kings 14:26-27 reveal who this savior was: “For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel. And the Lord said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.”

The Bible reveals that King Jeroboam ii reigned for 41 years, but most Bible chronologists believe the first several years of his reign were a co-regency with his father during the years he warred against Syria. In any event, the Bible definitely states that Israel would have been blotted out if God had not “saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.” And my father wrote in his article “Who Is the Modern-Day Jeroboam?” that President Donald Trump is the end-time type of King Jeroboam ii. That means God is using President Trump to temporarily save the modern-day descendants of ancient Israel (the United States and Britain primarily) from a Satan-led movement to “blot out the name of Israel from under heaven.”

In God’s eyes, Donald Trump is the legitimate winner of the 2020 United States presidential election. We do not know how long it will be until he reassumes control over the nation. But we do know that God will use him to stop the radical left from destroying the country.

But why is He saving this country? Because of our righteousness? No—because of our sins! This nation, like our ancestors in ancient Israel, is steeped in sin. God is saving this nation for the purpose of giving us one last chance to repent!

God has been intervening already, using the Trump candidacy, presidency and 2020 election to expose how hopeless Americans are without Him! Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, you need to recognize this divine intervention and turn to the only hope left: repentance toward God!
