PRESIDENT TRUMP: MAN AMONG BOYS – Jesse Lee Peterson examines Christian leader’s example in ‘fighting for America’
by Jesse Lee Peterson
The liberal media are once again trying to say President Trump is “angry.” He is not; they are. Watch at a distance and see Trump’s example as a Christian and a man fighting for America.
Last week, Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey – a sudden, shocking and welcome development. Comey rightly stated that the president can fire him for any reason or no reason. Trump operates differently from most. He likes to be unpredictable.
Liberals indignantly speculated that Trump aimed to stifle the FBI’s investigation into alleged “Russian collusion” with Trump’s campaign. Persuasion expert Scott Adams pointed out that Trump “made Democrats self-immolate over Comey while reminding everyone he wasn’t under investigation.”
I hear people talking about the “deep state” undermining Trump lately. I know liberal judges and government employees are dictating our lives and blunting Trump’s actions. He’s dealing with constant leaks, lies and opposition.
Comey was part of the corrupt, partisan government problem. An apparently emotional man who felt “mildly nauseous,” he might have impacted the election in Trump’s favor. He then lent legitimacy to the Democrats’ other go-to conspiracy theory of “Russian hacking” to excuse their loss. Perhaps Comey meant to compensate (“showboat,” in Trump’s view) for displeasing Democrats by investigating Hillary for her alleged national security breaches.
Comey was part of the anti-conservative bias Obama built into our government. Recall Dinesh D’Souza’s punishment after he illegally donated to a campaign that ultimately failed. The Clinton-appointed judge sentenced Dinesh to federal confinement and psychological counseling. According to Dinesh (who smiled the day Comey was fired), Comey allocated $100,000 of taxpayer funds to investigate D’Souza’s inconsequential $20,000 donation – “all to please his mob bosses Holder & Obama.” D’Souza likely got under Obama’s skin with his hit movie “2016: Obama’s America,” a documentary based on his aptly titled book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.”
Notice that Trump is not girly like Obama. Obama blamed Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and “racism” (which doesn’t exist) for his failure. Trump calls out “fake news” outlets like CNN, CBS and others. Liberal media personalities react very poorly and angrily to this criticism – much worse than Fox News people did.
We’ve seen disgraceful outbursts and disrespect from CNN’s Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper, CBS’s Stephen Colbert and numerous others. But they’re the ones promoting false narratives of “racism,” “sexism” and other fake news. They play innocent and while they delude, divide and incite the people to empower fellow children of the lie. And they assassinate the character of courageous men who stand up for the truth (as they did Bill O’Reilly, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and continually attempt to do with Donald Trump).
The media described Trump as “enraged” and “fuming” when he fired Comey – they called it an “impulsive” act of “anger and impatience,” purportedly to shut down the “Russia” nonsense, citing an anonymous leak.
Liberals like to create an echo chamber to make their lies seem true. But if you look closely at these men and women (like Rep. Maxine Waters), you see they are the insecure, childish ones, while Trump is the man in charge.
I often yell and go off when people do insane things. Angry people may think I’m angry like they are, but I feel nothing about it. So it is, I believe, with Trump. Comey’s recent testimony before Congress was undeniably bizarre, like so many other situations he created. Trump had seen enough. It was a long time coming. I think we can all relate to taking overdue action.
Childish vs. childlike
But liberal author and screenwriter Michael D’Antonio calls Trump “the little boy president” in a CNN opinion piece. He says Trump can’t behave like a responsible adult for the sake of the country. (In reality, Trump is perhaps the one real man in leadership, who loves and fights for the country.) If you look at D’Antonio, this man is weak, liberal, just sugar-water – much like Sen. Tim Kaine.
D’Antonio quotes Trump: “When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same. The temperament is not that different.” Children are innocent, honest, forgiving, unconcerned about protecting people’s feelings; and they love their father and mother. This describes Trump. But D’Antonio and so many other pathetic liberals are “terrified” at such a man in power.
Many conservatives also fall for this intellectual trap, confusing childlike innocence with childishness. I recently described myself as “a big kid” on my radio show, since I too dropped my anger and loved my father and mother. Christ said we must become like a child to enter the kingdom of heaven; then greater works than he did shall we do. It is so important to set this example as Christians.
Keep a distance between yourself and Trump. Don’t get your identity from anyone or anything. Don’t get caught up with what’s happening like liberals do. I share instructions for quiet prayer on my SoundCloud account. I urge everyone to pray. Then God might separate you from the world, allowing you to see for yourself, changing your life and the world around you.
