Trump and Jesus

And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.

~ Luke 20:20

"[Megyn Kelly] must have had a terrible vacation, she is really off her game. Was afraid to confront Dr. Cornel West. No clue on immigration!

~ Trump tweet, 9:42 PM – 24 Aug 2015

"Megyn was violently sick on debate night."

Beyond the Metaphysical: Jesus and Trump

I purposely waited to the beginning of January 2016 to write my first essay on the political genius Donald J. Trump, as I waited many months later after the Holocaust Democrat, Barack Obama first ran for office in 2007-08. In my 34+ years of writings on history, law, the Supreme Court, political philosophy, and many other subjects I have only come across three or four people in history – the biblical Joseph, Daniel, Jesus, and Donald J. Trump – who could move within this physical earthy plane, covered, protected by a metaphysical aura of defense against some of the world's most venal, reactionary, and hypocritical haters.

The Biblical Joseph

A political progenitor of Trump can be found in biblical Joseph, the 11th of 12 sons of the Patriarch Isaac. Joseph was the favorite son of his father who in honor of him made him "a coat of many colors." This ostentatious favoritism only made his other brothers hate him yet the more. Eventually they sold Joseph into Egyptian slavery by the slave trading Ismaelites (paradoxically, the progenitors of the Bedouin Arabs who gave the world Muhammad and devout Islam). The brothers also told their father Isaac that his favorite son Joseph had been killed by wild animals, and to add injury to injury while he was in Egypt serving as slave to Potiphar, one of the Pharaoh's chief military officers, his duplicitous master's wife tried to rape Joseph and when he refused on moral grounds, in revenge she lied on him telling her husband, Potiphar, that Joseph tried to rape her. Joseph was unjustly punished by Potiphar.

After spending13 years in prison he was eventually freed by interpreting the Pharaoh's dream, thus saving Egypt and that part of the world from a global famine including saving his brothers who betrayed him – eventually they were forced to come to Egypt to buy food. Joseph, now the Prime Minister of Egypt, second only to Pharaoh in power, told his terrified brothers: "You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good."

Likewise, Trump has this same God-ordained protection as Joseph had – that no matter how his detractors try to tear him down, he only rises in the polls and the people (including many Democrats, Blacks, Hispanics and first-time new voters) only love him yet the more. Presently 74% of all Republicans believe Trump will be the GOP nominee for president.

Joseph and Potiphar's Wife, by Guido Reni (1630)

The Biblical Daniel

Another precursor to Trump is found in the Book of Daniel 6:4. Daniel was a Jewish captive and a chief advisor to three oriental tyrants of antiquity including – Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, and Cyrus. The Bible says, "At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent." Repeatedly, over a period of many decades, Daniel's pagan colleagues were insanely jealous of his relationship with God and the King and thus wanted to kill him but could never find a just cause.

Even when these fascist tyrants forced the king's hand to throw Daniel into the lion's den, he still came out on the other side of their duplicitous treachery unharmed and the Bible says, "My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt." And this next passage where all evil is ultimately judged by God personally is what drives the Left crazy: "The king then gave the command, and those men who had maliciously accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the lions' den – they, their children, and their wives. They had not reached the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones." In other words the Natural law of retribution was turned against Daniel's treacherous political enemies and they and their families suffered the judgement they meant for the righteous man by being thrown into the lion's den. Daniel's goodness buried them all in a similar manner as the righteous cause célèbre of Trump's unrepentant American exceptionalism in defeating the Progressive Left – turning their Machiavellian efforts against him into millions of new voters for Trump.

Jesus Christ

In the New Testament, we find Jesus was constantly and viciously attacked in the Bible narrative. Every day of Jesus' three and a half year ministry on earth a gang of religious spies watched his every move, listened to his every word – not out of love of the Son of God who came to earth to take away the sins of the world, but out of a demonic bloodlust founded in petty jealously, lies, and envy to kill Jesus at any cost, for any reason, as soon as possible. Why the hatred of Christ? Because Jesus had real power and adoration of the people which the false Jewish and pagan leaders of the day – the Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, the Scribes, the Lawyers, the Publicans (tax collectors), the kings and the Caesars, etc. did not have Christ's love and admiration of the people.

According to the Pulpit Commentary, in Luke 20: 20-26, the question of the tribute money (paying taxes to Caesar vs. God) was a common rhetorical and political tactic used by the phony, hypocritical Jewish religious leaders of Jesus' day as a trap to show Jesus to be a traitor to Caesar which similar to how the Socialist-Progressives in modern times have sold out the constitutional Framers principles of Natural Law, Natural Rights and the integration of legality and morality for the Judas price of 30 pieces of silver. Verse 20: And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take held of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. The Pulpit Commentary narrative of that verse continues:
    In their intense hatred, conscious that the populace were on the whole in sympathy with Jesus, the Sanhedrim, to carry out their design on his life, determined to avail themselves of the hated Roman military police. Their hope henceforward is to substantiate a charge of treason against him. This was, in those troublous times, when insurrection against the detested Gentile rule was ever being plotted, a comparatively easy matter. The incident of the tribute money, which immediately follows, was part of this new departure in the Sanhedrin policy respecting the murder they so longed to see carried out.
Below is an article that cites 10 of Trump's so-called "controversial statements." In American political history over the past century since 1900, virtually all of the Republican nominees (except Ronald Reagan and possibly Theodore Roosevelt) were so cowardly and wedded to Socialist-Progressive worldview that their political career would have been destroyed if they had dared to say any of these truthful but controversial statements, yet Trump has triumphed over the Obama Press and over the tactics of the Holocaust Democrats who seek to destroy his political career from the cradle. Trump is still rising in the polls.

Why Trump is a Political Genius?

Writer Mohhit Priyadarshi was so obsessed with the political phenomenon of Donald Trump wrote an article, 5 most controversial quotes by the Donald in 2015. He admits "Trump has emerged as a realistic option in the race for American presidency."

Mohhit wrote: "Perhaps the most controversial remark Trump has made in recent times is his widely-criticized view on Muslims. In the aftermath of the San Bernardino shootings that saw 14 people killed, Trump invited the wrath of the world by claiming that he would certainly set up a database for Muslims if he became president. When asked if he would approve surveillance on mosques during an interview with Yahoo News, Trump answered this boilerplate socialist propaganda, "Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life."

Trump always thinks big; Trump always thinks without slave chains on his mind which drives the political Left crazy. Trump isn't an Alpha Male, he's a Macho Male which women, men, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and most people find very appealing. Trump further declared, "We're going to have to do things that we never did before. And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. We're going to have to look at a lot of things very closely." These "controversial statements" would have indeed been said by many U.S. presidents of the past including Reagan, Nixon, JFK, Eisenhower, Truman, and FDR. What makes Trump a singular transcendent political figure in 2015-16 is that he has an unmatched gift to say what the majority of Americans think and to hell with political correctness which the Democrat Socialist Party invented to keep We the People all slaves to a Socialist State and to deconstruct the U.S. Constitution, rendering it a deadletter, irrelevant to controlling and conducting our lives any longer in this country. Trump is a champion of the U.S. Constitution.

Mohhit next criticizes Trump's "xenophobic tendencies" and his "blatant sexism" regarding his defense when he chided Fox News host Megyn Kelly, a paid journalist assassin to attack Trump as Exhibit One in his "War on Women" during the first Republican debate – KELLY: "...You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals." TRUMP: "Only Rosie O'Donnell." (Laughter) Trump later commented to CNN's Don Lemon, "I do not have a lot of respect for Megyn Kelly. She is a lightweight. I don't like her. She is very overrated. You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes." Trump was right to expose the duplicitous Kelly as the unremarkable fraud we all knew her to be.

The Democrat Socialist Party thought they had used their useful idiot Megyn Kelly to set Trump up on that false question but it backfired against them and Trump only rose in the polls. Even Vanity Fair, a leftist British and New York propaganda literary rag, felt the need five months later to repair Megyn Kelly's shattered reputation in a Jan. 31, 2016 front page cover article characterizing that night at the Republican Debate as "Megyn was violently sick on debate night." Once again Trump was prophetic when shortly after Kelly's paid assassination attempt against him, Trump told the world:"[Megyn Kelly] must have had a terrible vacation, she is really off her game. Was afraid to confront Dr. Cornel West. No clue on immigration!"

Kelly falls to Trump: The moment Trump interrupted her vile interrogation with 3 words that killed Kelly's career..."Only Rosie O'Donnell."

Of course the Leftist media is very duplicitous and hypocritical. They hate Christians and conservatives with a venal, self-righteous hatred the public generally abhors. This is why Republicans and Democrats love Trump for he is the only person in the world who can immediately in a tweet call the Obama Press out on their treachery and self-righteous hypocrisy. That's a lot of power so when they defended GOP candidate Carly Fiorina, because Trump predicted that nobody would vote for a face like hers ("Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?! I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"), the Obama Press feigned a hypocritical rage. Of course they didn't care one bit about Fiorina's face or her feelings, she's a Republican and an eternal enemy to Progressives, but like the Pharisees and Sadducees of Jesus' day or the tyrannical bureaucrats of Joseph and Daniel's day, will hypocritically use anything to destroy their enemies following the Italian political philosopher Machiavelli aphorism in his treatise The Prince, "The end justifies the means."

I won't waste your time going on about what Mohhit calls Trump's "controversial" remarks about Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton got "schlonged" by Obama in 2008. – "Even her race to Obama, she was gonna beat Obama. I don't know who would be worse, I don't know, how could it be worse? But she was going to beat – she was favored to win – and she got schlonged, she lost, I mean she lost." Yes, "schlong" is a Yiddish word for penis, however most rational people understood that Trump meant the word in its other context – getting severely defeated by your opponent.

Trump and Putin

Perhaps the best example of Trump's political genius is his handing an olive branch to America's most long-standing political foe, Russia who when asked about Russia's leader president Vladimir Putin immediately remarked: "He has not killed anyone. I would get along, I think, with Putin." Putin returned the mutual admiration, calling Trump, "bright and talented."

That succinct, profound statement by Trump uttered on a national debate stage before the world did something no other politician ever did in American history; not even something Ronald Reagan ever dreamed of – Possibly ending 80 years of mutual hatred and mistrust and proxy wars between America and Russia dating back to the rise of Communism under Lenin and Stalin under the Bolshevik Revolution (1917) to today, 2016 and working together for world peace and security. These transformative, transcendent words of peace are reminiscent of Jesus' words: "Let him without sin cast the first stone." And John 1:11- "He came unto his own, and his own (the Jewish leaders) received him not." And one of my favorite passages, John 5:39 – "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."

Trump, Obama and Caesar

Leftist writers like Mohhit and the slavemasters of the Democrat Socialist Party will never understand Trump and his transcendent political success because they didn't understand Trump's political precursors like the biblical Joseph, Daniel, Jesus, and other "Heroes of Faith" chronicled throughout the Bible. These Anti-people whom I often refer to as Holocaust Democrats are the modern day Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians and Tax collectors of the corrupt, pagan State controlled by Caesar. The same Caesar who made Christians hide in caves like animals, destroyed and looted Jerusalem and with the Jewish bloodmoney Vespasian built the famous Roman Coliseum where Caesars like Caligula and Nero held grotesque spectacles casting Christians and Jews to the lions for sport – even setting their crucified bodies aflame as lanterns to light his night bacchanalias (wild parties) for his guests.

The great Roman poet Juvenal said it best regarding the tyrannical regimes down through antiquity including our own tyrant, Barack Obama – that all the irrational, hedonist mobs lust after is "Bread and Circuses" –
    ... Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions – everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses [Latin: panem et circenses]. (Juvenal, Satire 10.77–81)
Trump isn't a circus, he's a Statesman. Trump doesn't need another billionaires' bread (e.g., money) to buy and manipulate his views on every issue; Trump can fund his own presidential campaign with his own billions and thus spend all his time as president reversing the servile Socialist-Progressive Slave of Barack Hussein Obama and "Making America Great Again."

Go Trump 2016!
