Troops to Mexican border, Trump in Pittsburgh, and stoking civil war in the USA


US President Donald Trump has thousands of armed troops coming to the Mexican border to stop thousands who want to enter the USA:

October 30, 2018

President Donald Trump is sending 5,200 troops and a slew of military equipment to the southern border, doubling down on one of his favorite base-rallying issues with the midterm elections just days away.

The troops, who will be at the border by the end of the week, are being deployed to stop Central American migrants bound for the US, according to Pentagon and Homeland Security officials who spoke Monday.

The migrants, who are some 900 miles away from the border, are weeks away from arriving at the border where many reportedly plan to seek asylum.

“Our concept of operations is to flow in our military assets with a priority to build up southern Texas, and then Arizona, and then California,” Gen. Terrence John O’Shaughnessy said Monday, adding that the soldiers normally assigned weapons will be carrying them at the border. “We’ll reinforce along priority points of entry, so as to enhance” the ability of Customs and Border Protection officers to “harden and secure the border.”

Mexico has taken steps to discourage the current group of Central American, Mexican, and perhaps others who banded together to cross into the USA.

But the group has still been moving north towards the USA.

There has been violence and, presuming they try to cross into the USA, there is likely to be more violence.

This will affect not only those near the border, but will likely upset people across the USA as well as Latin America.

Furthermore, we have seen politicians in the USA itself stoking violence in the USA.

Notice the following:

Now, when Holder calls into question the legitimacy of our governing institutions, and Maxine Waters tells her supporters to follow Republicans around and “tell them they’re not welcome anywhere,” and Hillary Clinton assures us that liberals “cannot be civil” because Republicans are so evil, and Mazie Hirono justifies mob behavior by calling the mobbing hordes “motivated,” and Cory Booker exhorts his base to “get up in the faces” of Republican congressmen, we must conclude one of two things:

1) These leading Democrats are too stupid to know what they’re doing.

2) These leading Democrats know exactly what they’re doing.

I do not think they’re stupid. That leaves only the second option. The only real question is whether Democrats are simply unconcerned with the violence they might cause or if they actively want the violence. I think there is plenty of reason to suspect the latter.

Politicians are calculated. Especially Democrat politicians. Especially Democrat politicians like Hillary Clinton. There is a reason why they have chosen now — with tensions so high, and anarchists in the street shutting down traffic and assaulting motorists, and senators’ families receiving graphic death threats — to start using particularly militant language. A guy like Eric Holder, who was the Attorney General of the United States not long ago, doesn’t announce that the “legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned” on a whim. He well knows what happens when people begin to believe that the government is illegitimate. …

The side that seems to be chumming the water for civil unrest is also the side that is famously opposed to gun ownership. An editor at Think Progress recently said that Republicans should be confronted “where they eat and where they sleep.” Yet Republicans are the ones with all the guns. The Left is itching for a confrontation with people who have them outgunned by about 3 to 1. 10/10/18

Anti-Trump protestors are now regularly seen screaming, bullying, even hitting people in the streets. Activists have taken to abusing famous Republicans in restaurants; in the age of the camera phone, these incidents are always recorded, and always end up benefiting the person being shouted at. …

Trump has proved that he is, as everyone says, a rabble rouser. But the rabble he rouses most is the one that opposes him. The Democrats now find themselves all but advocating public disorder while fulminating about how dangerous Trump is.

That suits the Trump agenda perfectly. He has even invented a new Twitter meme, ‘#JobsNotMobs’. Like all Trump’s sayings, the phrase is at once moronic and brilliant. …

Trumpism puts off as many people as it turns on, which is why this year’s midterms are so fraught. In these fevered times, small incidents can become election-changing. The bomb threats this week posted to various Trump opponents have neatly validated the idea that Trump is leading to extremism. Trump fans are more than capable of behaving so badly they generate a righteous backlash: look at the far-right rally in Charlottesville last year, for instance. …

American politics has always been unpleasant; Trump has just removed the mask of civility. What is extraordinary, however, is the extent to which he has turned the Democrats into the nasty (or nastier) party.

Let me add that people with arms, legal or illegal, tend to have a willingness in various circumstances to use them.

A Jewish writer published the following yesterday:

A New American Civil War Feels Closer Than Ever After Pittsburgh

After the worst attack on Jews in American history, it’s time to be afraid for the future.

October 29, 2018

The media will launch sober and serious examinations of the spikes in hate crimes and anti-Semitic incidents—can you say “tiki torches?”—over the past several years, which others will call “fake news” designed to undermine a democratically elected president.. …

Donald Trump, mouths the right words about no-room-for-hateful-violence before he again promotes division and hatred, flogging his Make-America-White-Again slogan that invites previously hidden white nationalism to scurry into the full light of day. …

But the underlying problem is that we are a nation profoundly divided about what it means to be American. … The US government has been teetering back and forth between these two visions for generations. And no matter which side occupies the White House, the other wants their country back. One side was happy with George W. Bush’s red meat, red state presidency, invading freedom-hating nations, torturing suspected enemies to show strength, and keeping the country secure with a sprawling (and enduring) “security” apparatus. The other side—the globalists, the diversity-lovers, the cosmopolitans, the blue-coastal urbanites—thought that by electing Barack Obama, they had won back their country. …

Democrats generally are on one side of this ideological war. The other side—the white-Christian-identity-politics side—is heavily armed. By that I don’t just mean with personal weapons; I mean that they tend to be the ones serving in the US military or associated with militia groups. And I fear we are heading for a civil war.

Of course, the US has veered toward terrible social rupture in the past without spilling over the cliff into open, nation-dividing violence. …

Perhaps we are overdue for today’s turbulence and hatred between irreconcilable visions of America. Perhaps this is just an interlude of insanity that will be eased somehow, in a way we cannot yet imagine.

Or maybe the past several years’ open eruptions of racist and anti-Semitic and organized anti-immigrant violence—now government-sponsored, military-enforced, with immigrants literally being marched into illegal camps—are signs that we are a nation heading again toward open and protracted battle. Maybe when unhinged people commit (or try to commit) violence based on the conviction that the “other” side is evil, these are the early outbreaks of the war that will erupt once climate change begins claiming the coasts and burning the interior.

Donald Trump went to Pittsburgh today:

Local, national officials decline to appear with Trump in Pittsburgh

October 30, 2018

Local and national officials are declining to appear with President Donald Trump on Tuesday as he visits a grieving Pittsburgh, …

Trump, accompanied by the First Lady and prominent Jewish members of his administration — including daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared Kushner and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — arrived in the stricken city just before 4 p.m. ET. …

A spate of local and state officials also said they would not appear with Trump when he visits a hospital and pays respects to the 11 victims of Saturday’s massacre. …

“The President and first lady are traveling to Pittsburgh today to show their respect, honor the lives of those lost and offer prayers and condolences to a grieving community,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said. “The horrific tragedy in Pittsburgh is not a political event and out of respect, the President extended a bipartisan invitation to congressional leadership to travel with him to Pennsylvania. Understandably, the members had prior commitments or wanted to show their respect in a private way.” …

Trump’s visit comes amid a widening national debate over the President’s rhetoric, including the angry and at times violent messages he espouses during campaign rallies.

In Pittsburgh, some progressive Jewish leaders have encouraged the President to stay home. In an open letter to the President, members of the city’s “Bend the Arc” organization, a progressive group, wrote that his words and policies over the past three years “have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement,” and that he is not welcome until he “fully (denounces) white nationalism.”

But Rabbi Jeffrey Myers, who was leading services at Tree of Life during Saturday’s shooting, said on CNN’s “New Day” Monday that “the President of the United States is always welcome.”

So, even in this type of visit we are seeing division.

As far as division goes, next week’s midterm elections are going to be upsetting for a lot of people.

Politicians on both sides have been stoking the flames of division.

Plus, I would add that less cultural and media respect for the Bible, and the media’s fanning the flames and taking a more partisan approach, are significant factors in the division.

The Apostle Paul warned:

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! … 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. (2 Timothy 3:1-5, 13)

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (2 Timothy 3:1-5, KJV)

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality…30…violent, proud, boasters,…31…unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:28-32)

As the above gets more and more fulfilled, expect that we will ultimately see more serious social unrest in the USA.

Back in 1997, HBO (Home Box Office) had a film called the Second Civil War.

Could such a thing hit the USA?


Increasingly, the USA is becoming more polarized.

The recent Pittsburgh shooting (see ‘The Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack: What We Know’) as well as the mail bomber (see Bombs and dividing the USA) have even seemingly increased the division.

Consider also the following from the prophet Amos:

9 ‘Assemble on the mountains of Samaria; See great tumults in her midst, And the oppressed within her. 10 For they do not know to do right, ‘Says the Lord, ‘Who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.’” (Amos 3:9-10)

The reference to Samaria is pointing to the USA (see also Spiritual Samaritans: Old and New). The above is consistent with both civil unrest and terrorism. Expect more to hit the USA. Many of the right and left feel oppressed, they do not know how to do right, and they have stored up violence, and in ‘protests’ can display violence and robbery.

Violence, itself, often begets violence. So, sadly, we seem to be seeing more and more protests and terror.

The Bible warns:

25 … There shall be terror within (Deuteronomy 32:25)

There is violence in the USA. We are seeing increased civil unrest in the USA by groups like Antifa. We will see riots in the USA.

The Bible teaches:

9 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Enough, O princes of Israel! Remove violence and plundering, execute justice and righteousness (Ezekiel 45:9)

9…You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:9-10)

As far as violence goes, the Bible shows that God is against violence and that destruction will come because of it:

23 ‘Make a chain,
For the land is filled with crimes of blood,
And the city is full of violence.
24 Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles,
And they will possess their houses;
I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease,
And their holy places shall be defiled. (Ezekiel 7:23-24)

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality…30…violent, proud, boasters,…31…unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:28-32)

8…And the violence of the land and the city, And of all who dwell in it. ( Habakkuk 2:8)

Notice the violence is prophesied to get worse.

So much so that Gentiles will one day come and take possession of houses–this will happen to the USA during the Great Tribulation (see also When Will the Great Tribulation Begin?).

The time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7), also known as the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21), is coming and the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies (including Canada) will be affected.

National repentance is the only way to prevent it, and that does not look likely. Personal repentance, however, is still possible. If you are an American, your personal future can still be much brighter than that of your country.

Though for the nation, the Kingdom of God is the solution, but the USA will first have to go through a horrific 3 1/2 years. The end of the USA/UK world order is coming and the final Time of the Gentiles is getting nearer.

Consider the following from Jesus related to what has been happening in the USA:

25 Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. (Matthew 12:25)

17 Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls. (Luke 11:17)

Former US President Abraham Lincoln cited one of these scriptures in a famous speech he gave prior to becoming USA president. The situation worsened and the American civil war began not too long afterwards.

Increasingly, there is a cultural divide between those who profess some type of morality based upon scripture and those that have decided that political issues matter more than scriptural ones. Many are outraged about matters such as homosexual marriage and abortion, while others are outraged that everyone will not support homosexual marriage, various types of diversity, and abortion.

I remember the riots of 1968. Fifty years later, the stage seems to be being set for more.

The USA is not exempt from falling, and Jesus taught that “a house divided against a house falls” (Luke 11:17).

Ultimately, the USA will fall.
