The Devil’s in the Details.

German Philosopher and Poet Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche said, “Der Teufel stecktim Detail” which roughly translates, “The Devil’s in the details”. The details answer the questions “who, what, where, how, and why”. It was no secret that the DFL/GOP did not want Donald Trump to be elected the President of the US because what he stood for would cause problems for the Career politicians like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer especially if “term limits” were signed into law. I will not argue the fact that DJT could have used a little polish and, heaven knows, a little tact but, he did not deserve the manhandling he received from the House, Senate, and the American people. Had the House, Senate, the American people tried to work with him instead of turning on him, I don’t think we would have gotten to this juncture. The reason they didn’t work with him is that many of the politicians, whether they will admit it or not, are being bribed into silence. It is easy to push off the fault onto one person but a fight always takes two or more parties as my dad once said, “Two can’t if one won’t”. I don’t blame DJT for overreach of the buzzword “Fake News”. After all, if I were him, I would trust nobody especially the press because I wouldn’t know who to trust and I would hire family members also because I know all about them. After all, career politicians “eat the young” or misuse them to get what they want and then get rid of them when they are no longer convenient like the case of Al Franken (DFL MN).

Since 2016, we have heard non-stop insults and slurs on the President. It seems, to me though, that there are two sets of rules in politics one for those in power and another for the minority – which is nothing new when you consider the US’ history from the founding of our nation to the present day. As an example Rep, Talib’s (DFL MI) graphic rally (https://headtopics.com/us/perspective-rashida-tlaib-s-profanity-about-trump-is-wrong-it-harms-the-democratic-party-s-polic-3462719) versus Rep Greene’s (GOP GA) mentioning DJT and referring to QAnon to which she apologized during her testimony and rescinded her stance on it (https://www.cnbc.com/2021/02/04/house-to-vote-on-dropping-marjorie-taylor-greene-from-committees.html) both were wrong but both were treated differently. In short, “we strain at a gnat but swallow a camel (Matthew 23:24).

Currently, DJT is being impeached a 2nd time for inciting an insurrection on 1/6/2021 but the people assigned as the “Impeachment task force” will not mention the acts of violence portrayed across our land; including, “the shooting at the baseball game” (https://www.washingtonian.com/2018/05/28/terrifying-story-of-the-congressional-baseball-shooting-steve-scalise/) by a man associated with Bernie Sanders’ organization. The reason these things will not be mentioned was so that the politicians can get the populace to focus on the terrible acts of one person – DJT. This power play was nothing new, it also happened over 2000 years ago on a lowly hill called Golgotha (John 11:50). In the end, the culprits won but they also lost and because of their actions the party they held dear and the money they garnered disappeared, and the power they thought they had died with them. DJT like Nancy D Pelosi (NDP) is a human being capable of making mistakes in judgment.

The break-in at the US capital was an event that was a long time in coming sort of like the collapse of the towers on 9/11/01. The halls of congress are considered “hallowed” because of the history not because of the “great accomplishments” and it was all a bluff; because there were and are nefarious things done when the cameras are/were turned off and no one was paying attention. What the DFL and the GOP did by banding against DJT, instead of helping him, paved the way for their demise at a future date.
