I was woken this morning to the news that President Trump and his wife have tested positive for Covid-19, here at The Big Wobble we wish him and his wife a speedy recovery. The news comes after a terrible week for the president and his administration. This latest news just adds to the drama as America appears to be teetering toward a second civil war as the divided country unravels before our very eyes.
What happened on Tuesday night's American Presidency debate has shocked and awoken the rest of the Western world. It was the night when the Western World and our democratic system was compromised. It was a night when the president of the United States and supposedly the "free world" issued a thinly veiled dog-whistle to a far-right group that has endorsed violence to stand back and stand by and be ready.
It was a night when the Western World realised the rules had suddenly changed and democracy, at least in the US had shifted toward totalitarianism. President Trump, petulant, arrogant, rude, loud and very ugly, acted like a schoolyard bully. Far from being presidential or statesmen like, his behaviour was at best provocative in a debate which was more like two drunks arguing in a bar.
Now, Joe Biden will probably win the election on November the 3rd because of Mr Trump's car crash of a debate. However, Trump has already told us he isn't going anywhere if he loses and has told his "Proud Boys" live on Tuesday's Presidential Debate to "stand back and stand by." Trump's supporters are itching for a fight, far-right groups armed with Bibles and assault rifles, their numbers swelling daily by disgruntled police officers, soldiers and veterans, walking away from their jobs in record numbers who feel they have been betrayed and abandoned, MAGA, Proud Boys and White Supremacists, the far-right militia can hardly hold themselves back from confronting Antifa, BLM and the gay rights movement and a Democrat in the White House would be the spark to ignite the explosion.
Similarly, the far-left believe violence is also justified if Donald Trump, (or a Republican) was to win another 4 years. That is the frightening reality as the country head's toward its worst post-election crisis in a century and a half.
In Matthew 12:25 Jesus says: “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand."
America in 2020 is exactly that, a kingdom divided against itself, a once-great kingdom, the most powerful nation the world has ever seen. It is now a land divided by intolerance, hate, anger, greed and injustice
A country which expects its poorest to pay for the most expensive pharmaceuticals in the world. A country where hard-working families are losing their houses and jobs, evicted from their homes like criminals while the banks and the billionaires and leaders become even richer and look the other way. A system doing its very best to make sure the poor can't have insurance and if they do manage, to make sure they can't afford to continue once they have it. A system which targets the poor and uneducated rather than helping them.
The riots prove urban unrest is a class war and a race conflict which is being politicized by the contenders of the upcoming election. The insanity on the streets is like nothing before, the inequality on the streets is insane. Billionaires and millionaires populate cities where poor uneducated people roam the streets in abject poverty, homeless, shoeless and toothless, their only interest in life is to find their next high. An obesity pandemic has hit the dumbed-down poverty-ridden lower class, blissfully unaware their lifestyle is an early death certificate. You can hear their depressing view of life with no hope or improvement when they are interviewed on TV.
Then on the other side of the fence BLM, Antifa and the LGBT movement has become a fashion style for the middle class who have their rainbow flag and BLM poster on their well-manicured front lawns for all to see just how woke they are. These people show up at demonstrations downtown at the weekend before returning to their posh jobs on Monday, they need to protest because they have to be seen as doing the "we are woke thing!"
Many working-class parents are at breaking point trying desperately to hold onto jobs which are disappearing before their very eyes. Others have had to work, knowing full well they are sick but having no choice but to keep on working. At the latest count, almost 30 million people have lost their jobs this year in the US and that figure is rising rapidly. Something else we Europeans find very difficult to understand is how can people living in the richest country in the world not afford medical insurance?
The homeless, the lower classes and people of colour have been hit by the Covid-19 virus much harder than the middle class and the rich and for the most baffling reason imaginable, they could not afford medical insurance, surely the most vulnerable people in such a rich country should have free medical insurance?
The number of Americans who say they can’t afford enough food for themselves or their children is growing and it is likely to get larger now that some government benefits have expired. A federal moratorium on evictions has now expired and the politicians are not close to a deal on a new economic rescue package. Advocates and experts warn that an unprecedented crush of evictions is coming, threatening millions of Americans with homelessness as the pandemic continues to spread.
In major cities across America, the rich and famous are leaving in droves, allowing the streets to be taken over by homeless people, junkies and violent criminals. NYC moms are fleeing the Upper West Side amid crime and chaos. Many of these cities are run by the left-wing councils who try to persuade us the looting and rioting are just peaceful protesters. Murder and gun crime have skyrocketed in major cities across the US since the start of BLM riots.
The American people are indeed fighting a spiritual war and most of the US is unaware they are being played. Dark forces are at work and infecting people with hate on an unprecedented level. Violence, hatred and ugliness are spewing forth from people who have been dumbed down for years, a silent pent up anger has been boiling up inside people and Covid-19 has brought that anger to the surface. American society is broken and is disintegrating at breakneck speed.
Why is this happening? Many lower-class US citizens are living in the 21st century with suppressed immune systems brought on by their own desires. Obesity, diets rich in fat and sugar, processed foods, smoking, alcohol and drug consumption, medications, pollution, exposure to pesticides or industrial chemicals and radiofrequency radiation, sex and violence are pushed into their faces at every turn, they are being consumed by modern life. Their cells, proteins, and DNA are being damaged by a Western lifestyle, which is contributing to ageing and also play's a role in the development of a range of health conditions, including diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. In other words, they are killing themselves
So, the future looks bleak, will the US break up? Will it ever recover and become the same as it used to be? Or will we see a French type revolution or a 2nd civil war? I guess we won't have long to find out with most heated Presidential election imaginable just one month away, however, I have been hearing all year long, things will never be the same again.
