How Trump’s Self-Possession and Unwavering Belief in Sovereignty and The People Is Transforming the World: The Spiritual Principles at Work.

February 17th, 2020

Below is a great article about how Trump’s policies are slowly transforming the world.

https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/02/07/trumps-unorthodox-policy-wins-are-gaining-steady-support/?fbclid=IwAR0i4OwWQr4iY3dAq02QvmZYd0lhiPLtZPOrEF2JHFyq84DFuWl0D91Qrpo

I have written about the principles and specific causes of this transformation in my previous articles. If you read the article I can add to it a spiritual understanding. The essential paradox it speaks of is this: getting one’s own sovereignty right internally begins to transform things around you – which is what Trump is doing in America. Establishing one’s sovereignty seems selfish to the outside at first, but it really means getting right with God’s principles, that’s the elixir that changes things from the inside and it begins to show up on the outside. It means to do one’s own internal homework – which a lot of people don’t do – but when we do It hits on the conscience of those around (who still have some awareness) and they begin to change from the inside also.
Trump is essentially a master of self-possession and the common sense that comes from it. It doesn’t take a genius to know that trade and tariffs should be fair and equal, but it does take a person of very powerful self-possession to change a system that has drifted into an unfair ‘culture of corruption’. As Trump so truthfully and simply said, ‘the USA had become the piggybank and sucker of the whole world – and that’s not going to happen anymore’. In saying that everyone knew it was right. Trump called-out the emperor for being naked, and suddenly everyone could see the naked emperor.
The real agent of change in self-possession is that one connects themself to God by submitting to God. ‘Submitting to God’ sounds ‘oh so spiritual and hard’ but it really means focusing and concentrating on our core self and the Godly desire that inspires it, and NOT on all the extraneous parts of our self that usually have compromised survival strategies that either pander or react. The core self is directly connected to God and receives from God. God is only received in humility, and in receiving him we gain strength and creative genius. This is symbolized by the knights of old who were powerful men, but they bowed in service before the king; willing, in mind body and soul, to fight in obedience for the great cause.
All of Trump’s principles of Foreign policy demonstrate these spiritual principles perfectly in the world. As we have all seen and talked about before, as a new president
Trump immediately put ‘America first’, and he built the military up to superior strength. He boldly chided every American by saying ‘we are going to win so much you won’t be able to stand it’; and every American’s conscience was piqued for how small we were dreaming for our self. His foreign policy is simple: whoever clearly shows and persists in doing evil in the world we are going to take you out. Not countries, but merely the elements in the country. We will overwhelm the evil-doers with economic sanctions and take out the leaders who are direct threats. He can do this because he has America in a completely superior position militarily and economically. We do not try to change a countries government, or impose our ways on them, we don’t go to war, we just take out the head of the snake, and put a strangle hold on their economy. This is so profoundly effective because, as the article below shows, everyone has no choice but to see who is doing the evil and change their practices, or fall by the way side. And Trump always says, ‘I don’t know if they will change, it’s up to them, but they have no choice at some point’. It’s true, he can afford to wait it out if he has to but they cannot. Iran and Palestine are holding on hard to their evil ways but they are quickly seeing they are alone, and all their former posturing and threats become more hallow and useless. If this works on Palestine, which the article shows it is beginning to, it will be an achievement of immense proportions.
The PC world and lukewarm leaders have been able to silence America by saying, ‘You are greedy capitalists and don’t deserve to be better’. This tactic sheds-off him like water off a ducks back. Trump knows the best way to deal with Greed and self agency is on the free market and in the American Republic where greed and evil cannot readily hide, but must compete with the God given love to serve on the free market. All people, no matter where they are from, want to be free. Trump, and the true America, merely clear the way and let this Godly desire from within do the rest.
You know God is using Trump because Trump doesn’t want war and has found a way to avoid it. He dearly wants to be friends with other nations, and is making friends of nations around the world, which gives him and the world more leverage against the evil doers. God bless.

The Art and Effect of Standing Up to Bullies From Love: Why I Think Trump Is Doing the Right Thing By Pulling Out of Turkey

October 17th, 2019

     I think Trump is taking the Right action in pulling our troops out of the war in Turkey. Sanctions have worked very effectively against other countries like Korea, China and in the middle east. And right now the USA has the greatest economy in the world and a lot of leverage to bring the pain to Turkey. Trumps strategy of sanctions and equalizing tariffs transformed our relationship with China, and the Arab countries. We have policed ancients wars and it is very hard to control people’s ancient rage and habits by force. We get in the middle and it is often a mess, because the fundamental cause usually doesn’t get changed. Do dems remember the mess of Vietnam?
      Trump’s priority in foreign policy has been very clear. He said we go in to eradicate hardcore evil and terrorism. We don’t go in to change ideologies and create democracies. The later policy of the past has been an incredible drain on our economy, spending trillions of dollars, and on the lives of Americans, and the results have not been very good. He wants to have an overwhelmingly strong military so that when we go in it is extremely decisive and an incredible deterrent.

     The USA has a conscience in the way we do things and treat others. Our nation is based on the constitution, and the constitution is spiritual intelligence from the Word. This is what has made us a light to the world. Our national emblem shows an eagle holding in one talon arrows, and in the other an Olive branch, which represents that peace is the goal and motivation, and strength is the means. This is the root of what we need to tether our thinking to. I think Trump is following Godly principle in his actions and give thanks for that.

     What is most amazing about Trump’s foreign policy is that it organically causes the people to want freedom and thus democracy and capitalism. When the oppression and evil is taken away from the people an innate desire from God arises in the people. The people to want develop their skills and work out their identity and destiny in freedom. When their terrorists are removed, the desire for freedom in people arises. You see this happening in China right now in a huge way. It is not the expressed purpose of his foreign policy but it is the effect. The same effect has caused major change in Saudi Arabia and in Korea.
       Sanctions have a similar effect in that they put a crunch on the people, the markets, the leader, and the government. This crunch causes a loss of freedom and stimulates reflection on what they would like their life and country to look like. The people are in a position that they must take a stand and fight for change. Basically, Trump’s policy is to stand up to bullies; and with the removal, or the partial dis-empowering of bullies, the fighting spirit in the people is awakened from pain or inspiration to fight for the kind of life they want.
 
      The incredible love and support repeatedly shown for Trump’s leadership and success is also the result of him standing up to bullies and corrupt leaders. The enthusiasm and huge crowds at Trump rallies is unprecedented in history. The true American identity and use as a light to the world is being profoundly affirmed. Only God can do this.
 

Trump and the People are Fighting to Build a Foundation for America that Will Help us Prosper Long into the Future

May 19th, 2019
Trump is building a very strong foundation for America to prosper long into the future. He knows what he is doing, who the real enemy is, and how to defeat them. He is gradually winning huge in the courts with appointments of constitutional Judges at all levels. No accident we are winning cases at the state and national level now. Barr is poised to bring justice to the deep state. Trump is successfully in the process of fighting-off challenges from economic adversaries like China, and from violent threats to the USA and the world from the likes of ISIS, Korea, Iran, Islam.
At the same time he is building up allies based on the right principles, a huge part of which is to focus on being fair and not forcing democracy on others, but respecting their ways. The laser focus of his foreign policy is to defeat terrorism and free the people. The genius of this is that it actually organically causes the people to fight for freedom and desire democracy. He also makes countries we help, and the UN, pay their share. He is equalizing unbalanced tariffs with everyone around the world. Slowly but surely he is dealing with the huge border problem with Mexico, and he is bringing a free market based health care system that works. All of these are essential fronts that must be addressed as building blocks for our long-term spiritual and economic health.
Meanwhile the left shows a picture of people who are disingenuous and dissociated from reality and are moving head long into having no foundation whatsoever. They have spent two years fiercely obstructing, and when they do articulate a vision it is the Green Deal, which is utterly impractical and not taken seriously. The democrats are dedicated to making America a socialistic nation which would be its destruction. Defeating the left is Trump’s greatest achievement. They are our greatest threat.
The winning he and conservatives (and their supporters) are achieving is incredibly important for the psyche of America and the world because it is of integrity, brings safety, and upholds God. Like a child that fights its parent tooth and nail, (but inwardly is glad his or her parent disciplines them), I think those on the left know what Trump is doing is right, but they have decided that they are going to fight it even if they are wrong. The difference is a child has innocence and this quality causes them to relent. An adult can do this too, but can also loss their innocence, which means to lose one’s conscience, and stand on pride alone. The power brokers on the left believe that ‘the New World Order’ was inevitable, and would wash over the will of the people to be free. This movement is from the same old dark forces, the machinations of evil that repeat the same mind numbing techniques over and over, promising utopia that is really a hellish, controlled state.
But the Trump movement is standing up and taking responsibility!
 
Luke 6:48 – “They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.”
 
Luke 6:49 – “But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

Kanye West, Trump and Dragon Energy – “Wearing the MAGA Hat Makes Me Feel Like Superman” – Trump and Kanye Are On Their Heroes Journey!

October 27th, 2018

I had a discussion with some folks here in Berkeley about Kanye and they  argued that Kanye is ‘mentally unhealthy’ and even ‘insane’. You see pundits on TV saying the same thing, and even more awful things about him such as, ‘Kanye is an enemy of his own race’. I think these are lowball tactics that are not accurate. Kanye has acknowledged before that he was and perhaps still is bi-polar, though in his meeting with Trump he also observed that people were incorrectly trying to pigeonhole him with this ‘diagnosis’. Kanye may also not have the same filters as most people. He no doubt has made lots of mistakes with this, but it is also part of his creative nature and an expression of courage, which his meeting with Trump is an example of.  The left used to say these quirks about him made him heroic but now claim they are signs of him being mentally unstable. Being bi-polar is only an aspect of a person, it’s not the definition of a man. I know people who are diagnosed with bi-polar and it can be a challenge to deal with, but it is certainly nothing to dismiss a person for. They also often have values and creative expressions of high value. The greater truth about Kanye is that he is a bold, strong, highly intelligent and creative man. I think he knows when something great is happening and he has the heart and sense to embrace it.

Dragon energy, the way Kenya used it, refers to a spiritual bad-ass, like Bruce Lee. His invoking of this term was a great moment for all cultures and their integration. PC culture called this ‘inappropriate cultural appropriation’, but this is a small view that would have people walking on eggshells. Cultural appropriation comes from liberal academics and is an extension of relativistic thinking that constricts the voice of the people. What Kanye did was a huge leap in empowering blacks and cultural integration – it opened a creative avenue and brilliant conception for creative thinking and embracing brotherhood with all cultures. Kanye is faulted like all of us but he has a brilliant shinning spirit that inspires. His spirit rejects group think, as do so many of us!

Black unemployment is at an all time low, so is latin unemployment, and every other category. It’s not ‘cool’ to ignore that, its cool to embrace and have appreciation and enthusiasm for such a great achievement in restoring American greatness, to give credit where it is due.

What Kanye said cost a lot for a man in his position. Martin L. King’s idea of non-violence has a similar spiritual quality to what Kanye called ‘Dragon energy’. Dragon Energy is listening to, expressing, and acting on one’s inner genius; standing up to group think with love & composure. Its power that comes from obedience to God; like a knight to his King, like a marine to his country, like an artist to the vision God has given her! Dragon energy is about being present and takes courage; the opposite of it is being avoidant, and giving in to fear, being irresponsible, cowardly. Non-violence is the union of compassion and strength, it strives to face the real issues it needs to, and appeals to the Godly conscience of others. This takes spirituality, self-awareness and skill. For years Democrats have claimed MLK as their own, but they do it in image only now, inwardly they do the opposite. The socialist bent is lukewarm and avoidant, which is spiritually foolish; in the end being avoidant takes far more energy then being present.

(Shot-gun notes on some of Kanye’s impromptu speech:  Welfare has hurt blacks. Prison rates went way up. Its bravery that makes life. The hat gives him power. He did not have a lot of male energy growing up. He loves everyone. He didn’t get to see his dad and play catch with him. Maga hat makes him feel like superman. He looks up to industry that gets things done. Trump gave him the heart to go into Addidas – the yeezy effect – the core of America. Addidas made him a billionaire. Bring jobs into America, worked on doing good for kids with Montessori, for mental health, Waldorf, meditation centers are good for kids health. watch out for trap door with the 13th amendment. Build a trap door next to the uni-bomber. Kanye had bipolar diagnosis, he has High IQ, he wasn’t bi-polar but he had sleep deprivation. Kanye can empower those he works with. His offers divine lovely words not dope. He brought a gift with him. If Trump don’t look good we don’t look good – we have to make our core good. Kanye spoke from the soul. We need to care about all people. Black programmed to be victims. We been sold a brand more than our own ownership of land and business. Blacks talk to much about racism which breeds hate – take responsibility for black on black killing. You think racism can control me? No. What should we do in Chicago? I want to stop ‘stop and frisk’ which disagrees with Trump – and is OK because he thinks it creates bad relationships between cops and people. Trump is open to good ideas. We need to make shoes and jeans in Chicago, and we can call them Trump factories. He wants positive education centers, ‘yeezies’, mental health programs. Larry Hoover is a beacon.)

Kanye spoke of  Trump being on his heroes journey. This is a great truth, a brilliant thing to see and to say because it puts both of their lives in a meaningful framework. Kanye is an American Hero now. He did and said what millions of people wanted to say and do at the crucial time it was needed. Kanye said that we, liberals and conservatives, need to worry less about the future and do what we can now in the present, because ‘all’s we have is today’. This speaks of a man who is seeking healing for himself and his country. Healing can only take place in the moment. Most all mental anxiety stems from not being in the moment, but paralyzed in the future or the past.

Kanye said that wearing the Maga hat makes him feel like superman! What an extraordinary thing to say! To the left it no doubt sounded like someone scratching their fingernails on the black board. I loved it, and the way he articulated his reason for it was equally brilliant. He explained how he had to stand up to intense peer pressure from his industry and those around him. Inside, he could see the good Trump was doing for blacks, all of the nation and or God in America. In his talk Kanye unabashedly spoke of Trump as a father figure. Most people would not be willing to say something this vulnerable in public. I have seen the left often criticize people for making the president a father figure; they dismiss one’s support of the president as invalid because it is ‘just fulfilling a psychological need’. But I say Kanye is far more ahead of the curve than those who accuse him. He told how he did not have a lot of male energy in his family growing up, (and that he did not marry into much either). He talked about not seeing or being able to play catch with him as a kid. #Maga makes him feel like superman because he responds to strong male energy and mentoring . He looks up to Trump for His business acumen and Trump helped to inspire to make is Addidas deal. This is all remarkable stuff and Kanye’s honesty inspires others to see the strength in being vulnerable, the self empowerment in being honest and moving on from the past.

The truth is the President should be great father figure! He needs to be strong, a protector, a confident, experienced man of the world and a man of God that puts results for the people first – a servant leader that people can trust. #Trump is father, a great business man, an alpha male that loves God. His presidency is defined by exposing evil in America and the world and standing up to it. This is the first and greatest sign of a man God is using! This is the very reason the left is going so nuts. But Trump is unflappable in protecting the flock. He forgives vanquished enemies quickly, and rewards common sense and great work with a huge heart. He builds up and brings out the best in peoples in a thousand ways. He is on his heroes journey and encouraging other like Kanye to be on theirs.

As Much as Their Personalities are Different Trump Brings the Best of MLK, Reagan (and Others) to the Table: The Meaning of Non-violence and How Trump Lives it and the Left Gives Lip Service

August 24th, 2018
Martin Luther King’s non-violence was the union of compassion and strength; it was not passive nor avoidant, but brought the power of presence, or conscience, to people and an issue. It brought the focus of being right with God, not the intent to beat others, and thus possessed the potential virtue of winning others over. In didn’t seek or settle in being above or below others. Being present in this way guided and/or forced people to face their conscience, a conscience that they had been avoiding, and unspokenly agreeing with others to avoid. Seeking this path effectively aligns a movement with the power of love and wisdom which God can honor and work through. Jesus said it in many ways; here is one: “He who is without sin…throw the first stone”. In saying this people were convicted by their own conscience from within which is transformative. Jesus never dissociated from anything, but was present to all no matter how great the conflict or the intimacy.
The democrats claim MLK as their own, but do it in image only, but inwardly are doing the opposite. Their socialist bent is the spirit of being lukewarm; to be lukewarm is essentially being avoidant. What people don’t think about is that being avoidant takes more energy then being present. Being present takes courage, being avoidant is giving in to fear or even cowardice. In their actions the democrats have proven to not be responsible to real dangers and problems. Their leaders sold them on the lower, dissociative impulse; on the promise of free rides, and on compassion to all without discerning the quality of things. Now they have a platform of emotion and obstruction, and have little vision or reason. As they double (multiple times) down on this position we are seeing that it harbors violence with those that take it too far.
The Trump movement is much more in line with MLK. Trump and America when acting from wisdom have always said that we seek peace through strength. This is exactly what Reagan did and said. It is the correct spiritual attitude when we have peace as the end purpose and strength as the means if necessary. This is the meaning of the Eagle in our national emblem that holds an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. Trump faces and deals with small and huge problems with confidence and presence. He has shown Americans where we have been negligent and avoidant; and the conscience of Americans has been peaked, and our hearts repentant of this neglect and lack of courage, but from this our hearts are now strengthened.
Look at what he is doing with tariffs and with the UN. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that tariffs should be balanced between countries and that the UN members should pay their fair share. Any kid playing marbles knows this, but a ‘culture’ had grown around this that allowed tariffs  to become way out of balance. This is the nature of evil that worms its way in and normalizes itself, even though it defies all common sense. We have the same problem now with the double standard in the way the left is treated in the courts and in the news and the way the right is; its a terrible bias where there is not supposed to be any bias, but its very hard to change. These things are of evil; and evil always tries to hide itself by snowing the mind. Obama and Hillary fed into this mindset. Trump is bringing back common sense with tariffs, which is having, and will continue to have huge implications for the future good in the world. It doesn’t take a genius to see what is fair, but it DOES take a genius to change it!
      Trump is facing the problems when everyone else before him just let them grow. There are many types of geniuses; Trump is a genius of spiritual practicality, dealing with power and conflict, and standing up to evil with composure – and even care. He demonstrated this well by standing up to the nations of the UN that were not paying their share; he did this forcefully, AND he did it with the other parties interest in mind. We especially see this in the way he deals with the very tricky problem of Putin and Kim. People were upset, especially the left that he was trying to be in rapport with Kim and Putin, that he liked them. This is where he is a genius in manifesting and others are not. He sees the evil, and potential evil very astutely; he also understands the nature of the other parties ego and needs. Kim is a single man doing very evil things, but he is a man with an ego, much less mature and much more insulated than Trump. Trump knows how to use his person and position to appeal to this mans ego, and how to leverage Kim’s weaknesses for the sake of doing good for the world. He genuinely wants to help him, and he worked every angle, including the power to completely destroy him and his power, – in order to bring about peace for the world. Though the following is not a perfect comparison, the situation with Kim reminds me of something in the movie ‘Schindler’s List’, where Schindler very carefully dealt with the nazi general that had power of his realm. Schindler played to this insane man’s needs; he reasoned with him in moments of rationality, but he also took advantage of his vanities and weaknesses to acheive a great good. 
The Trump Train movement is not about trump; he is the leader, but its about the conscience of the people coming alive, and in this God can work and bring about much good.
Trump is also like MLK in that he is doing a great good for the black community. He doesn’t have a consciousness of favoring or disfavoring, he simply does the right thing for the people and respects people to be responsible – and they usually respond with their best self. The left tries to manipulate empowerment by enacting regulations like affirmative action. Affirmative action inherently assumes blacks are disadvantaged and lesser by giving them a handicap advantage. This kind of regulation rarely works, but backfires because it assumes lack, it hinders responsibility and freedom so there is not the need to learn that people grow from. Another example of this is Obama’s bail-outs that were a complete waste of money and had no good effect, but bred and rewarded corruption. These kind of regulations are like introducing an invasive species into a eco-system that causes unseen negative results.  Trump works within the eco system of the free market! Trump upholds the merits and talents of people and their good traditions that breeds confidence and self-agency. This is why people at rallies love him so much, and foreign nations respect him. He demands respect, and gives respect, and he calls out people and nations hidden inequities. He demonstrated this very well in his visits to the Arab countries early in his presidency. You also see in meetings he always praises the good of others, but if there is an elephant in the room he calls it out. Also in official ceremonies he upholds deep traditions that mean a lot to people and that affirms their best self; the weight of his authority makes this very special for people.
       Trump also forgives quickly which is a very important quality in the MLK skill set. There are many examples of this; here is one: During his candidacy Haley said some very bad things about him, potentially undermining him at the time. But Trump saw the good in her, and when he became president he made her the ambassador to Israel, and she has done a great job, showing great courage in standing up to entrenched prejudice against Israel.

          MLK himself was reputed to be a big womanizer, yet he did great good. Schindler was also a big womanizer in his life; he was also money motivated, but God gradually changed his heart to save many Jews. Trump seemed to have these qualities in his life also to some degree, but God grew a rough business man to become a truly great man leading America back to its great identity!

     Notice Kanye didn’t kiss Trumps ass while he gave him the most powerful endorsement ever. Man to man respect from those who walk the walk. Kanye rejected group think and gave recognition to the good Trump has done for blacks and all of the USA. The Left was shocked at his expression of truth to power. What Kanye said costs a lot for a man in his position, but everyone knows African American unemployment is now the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. MLK’s idea of non-violence has the same spiritual quality to what Kanye called ‘Dragon energy’. Dragon energy, as Kenya used it, refers to a spiritual bad-ass, like Bruce Lee, which is standing up and respecting one’s own internal genius and that of others. That he invoked this term is great for all people and cultures. What Kanye did was a huge leap in empowering black people and all people; it was great moment of cross cultural integration. This is how the spirit of genuine unity comes about – to see and respect the good and abilities of others. Exactly what trump and MLK are about.
