America in Turmoil: Making Sense of What’s Happening

During the year 2020, the United States has been trying to cope with three major crises simultaneously: (1) the coronavirus, or Covid-19—which many believe will return in a more virulent form; (2) the severe economic consequences of large-scale shut downs in response to the virus; and (3) widespread riots and acts of civil disobedience and, in some cases, violence—all triggered by the murder of a black suspect by a white police officer in Minnesota. These events are not coincidental or unrelated, and I believe all of them are being used by enemies of America as opportunities to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump and the Constitutional government of the United States.

This may sound like a conspiracy theory, but there is evidence to support this claim—some from secular sources, and some from contemporary prophets and alleged private revelations. I don’t wish to talk politics or risk offending anyone by doing so, but I believe we can’t fully understand what’s currently happening in the United States—or what may happen in the near future—without discussing the role of our current president.

When Donald Trump sought his party’s nomination for the presidency, he was one of seventeen Republican candidates. Personally, I preferred any of the other sixteen to him, and on Election Day in 2016, I didn’t really vote for him; I marked his name on the ballot as a way of voting against his opponent, whom I considered an evil woman who would likely shred the Constitution and quite possibly implement a religious persecution. I must admit that over the last few years, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by President Trump, who reportedly underwent a sincere religious conversion during the 2016 campaign. I do sometimes cringe over the things he says or tweets, and I’m not always comfortable with his “shoot from the hip” style—but by his policies and his Supreme Court and judicial appointments, he has shown himself to be very much pro Constitution, pro-life, and pro-religious freedom. This makes him a sworn enemy of the One World Movement, or New World Order—the collection of influential organizations, agencies, and individuals working to bring about a global government, economic system, and religion.

To succeed in this scheme, they have to “cut down to size” the United States of America, reducing its power and influence and decreasing its military and economic importance. If Hilary Clinton had been elected, I believe this process would now be largely complete. Donald Trump, for all his many faults, truly loves his country and sincerely wants to make America great again—and so he has been targeted by those persons and groups, here in the United States and elsewhere, who have a very different agenda. He has been the victim of a campaign of lies and vilification unprecedented in its scope and viciousness. Any other politician undergoing what he’s endured would have long ago surrendered or cracked under the pressure—but his enormous ego has made him deter- mined to fulfill what he considers his God-given mission, no matter what.

This past spring the former apostolic nuncio, or Vatican ambassador, to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Vigano, wrote an open letter to President Trump, in which he praised him for fighting the so-called Deep State, whom the archbishop referred to as “the children of darkness”— persons who “often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media,” along with those who aid them “either out of self-interest or fearfulness.” According to the Archbishop, the children of darkness “want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money,” and are thus “fiercely waging war against” President Trump.

Archbishop Vigano believes the different crises of 2020 are either created or exploited in an effort to undermine the Trump presidency. For instance, in regard to the riots — not the legitimate protests against police brutality, but the widespread violence and mindless destruction—that followed the murder of George Floyd, the Archbishop writes, “It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction.” Moreover, last March Jesus allegedly told an American visionary named John Souza:

You currently have the enemy working on all fronts to use this tragedy [of Covid-19] in order to unseat your president. His policies produce good economic results globally. Some evil entities were not prospering because he was leveling the playing field [in] economic trade. It is not a mistake that this disease originated from China. The [evil one] and his minions have successfully orchestrated this disaster.

. . . My Father uses this event to teach My people He is in control. He will give his people a temporary reprieve through their prayer of repentance. .

. . My Father’s anointing is upon this leader of yours; listen to him.
