Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States. The big question still on the minds of voters on both sides is “how in the world did he win?”
Through the election process, Democratic Candidate, Hillary Clinton was confident that she would be the winner. How could she not be? She had the popular support. She apparently had the experience. She was poised. She came off very well during the three debates. She was so confident that it was ‘a done deal’. Everyone wondered “what went wrong?”
It’s really simple. Here’s and answer from Thomas B. Walsh, author and retired executive on Quora:
Since 1992 Democrats have held a solid “blue wall” of Great Lakes battleground states: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. In 2016 those states represented forty-six electoral votes.
The story is being told that after the Wisconsin primary Bill’s advice was, “Yah all, should be payin’ more attention to these workin’ folks.”
During the campaign, Bill Clinton felt that he was ignored by Hillary’s top advisers when he urged them to make the economy the centerpiece of her campaign. He repeatedly urged them to connect with the people who had been left behind by the revolutions in technology and globalization.”
Bill said that constantly attacking Trump for his defects made Hillary’s staff and the media happy, but that it wasn’t a message that resonated with voters, especially in the rust belt,” the source explained. “Bill always campaigned as a guy who felt your pain, but Hillary came across as someone who was pissed off at her enemy [Trump], not someone who was reaching out and trying to make life better for the white working class.”
Hillary’s staff laughed at him. (I’m assuming behind his back.) Trump flipped Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan—the margin of victory.
Note: After the primary Hillary never set foot in Wisconsin again.
Hillary had disrespect for her husband’s advice.
Hubris cost her the election.
She also had disrespect for her supporters. She saw the Presidency as an entitlement. She neglected her constituency and assumed that it was a done deal. In effect, she also had disrespect for the office of the President of the United States.
What of the alleged racism of Donald Trump? Take a look at what by Scott Alexander said in his Slate Star Codex article, You are still crying wolf. Scott Alexander is definitely not a Donald Trump supporter. His advice is:
Stop crying wolf.
The Democrats and liberals just made up the issue and it isn’t true, so those transgender people committing suicide, the people lining up to enter into Canada and those rioting in the streets are in a panic for nothing. Just stop it.
As soon as Donald Trump had been elected [by the vote count of the Electoral College], he hit the ground running. As a businessman taking office as the Chief Executive of one of the largest businesses on earth, he has been diligent in preparing not just for preparing for the Presidency himself, he’s been busy establishing a staff to support the effort and has been meeting with leaders, including current President of the United States.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that the ways of thinking and working of highly positioned entrepreneurs is quite different from the run of the mill middle class and working class folks. For one thing, Donald Trump objectifies himself and the people who work for him and with him. This divorces himself from the emotions that would cripple him in getting the job done. What jobs? In his own words, “I want to focus on jobs, I want to focus on health care, I want to focus on the border and immigration….”
The children of Donald Trump certainly speak well for him. They are a success in their own right. It is both a credit to him and an assurance that he has a better chance of doing things right in the Presidency than many critics claim. Moreover, Donald Trump does not drink alcohol — primarily because of his brother’s problems with alcoholism. And his children don’t drink alcohol either.
For someone 70 years old, he has a lot of energy and enthusiasm that people wouldn’t expect. He’s taken his future job seriously; he’s moving forward with vigor. He also has chosen those he is going to work with and has started delegating, with the full knowledge that he can’t do everything himself. He is not shown disrespect for the office of President.
It should be noted that Donald Trump has a high level of intelligence as well as a background in Business with a degree from an accredited University. The latest research seems to disclose that most of the Presidents of the United States have an I.Q. between 123 and 132 with a number of outliers beyond the first standard deviation from the mean. President John F. Kennedy had an I.Q. of 158. John Adams had an estimated I.Q. of 173.
So what is the I.Q. of those in the current events? Bill Clinton has an I.Q. of 156. His wife, Hillary Clinton has an I.Q. of 140. Now you may ask, what is the I.Q. of the current President of the United States, Barak Obama? He is a true man of the people: He has an I.Q. of 102 — one of the lowest I.Q.s of any of the Presidents ever. He’s more of an actor media type guy selling the Democrat’s agenda, which doesn’t really require that high an I.Q. and which puts him on about par with the average person — definitely a win-win.
And Donald Trump’s I.Q. is 156.
This means that he might not always be as understandable to the average person as, say, Barak Obama might be.
What does any of this have to do with the leaders of the sects of the Cult of Herbert Armstrong Mafia?
Well, for one thing, in comparison, they aren’t that bright. David Pack, Roderick Meredith, Gerald Flurry and Ronald Weinland aren’t exactly towering intellects. Neither is Victor Kubic nor Mark Armstrong. Yet — and this is so amazing — those who would completely flounder and fail if they were elected President of the United States, being completely over their heads and totally unqualified to even begin to appreciate the complexity of office, certainly have a lot of opinions about how a President should act, who or what he or she should be and what programs should be employed. They are out of their league. Their incompetence stands as an enormity which cannot be ignored (except that it is by their membership). They seem to forget Romans 13 in that Book they not only claim is the Foundation of all Knowledge, but that some how they feel qualified to explain (even though they are clueless). Sorry if some names like Eric King have been failed to have been mentioned, but the incompetence of the ACoG leadership is pretty much boundless (not unlike the bottomless pit).
No, but they do disrespect the person in the office of the President of the United States, they disrespect the office itself, they disrespect the government, they disrespect the Republic for which it stands, they disrespect the people of the United States and some how project that they are going to take over some day and do a better job of it all. Look, buckos, you can’t even solve the problems in your own cult. Why would anyone trust you to solve the problems of the world — even under direction, because, if there’s one thing we’ve learned about the leaders of Armstrongism is that they just don’t follow directions. They take portions of what they claim to believe, perform cut and paste and proof text to the hilt. Moreover, they can’t even be honest about it. By this time, they all know that British Israelism is total bunk, but, you know, Living University has a course on the subject… for credits, even — with a man on the staff who revealed back in 2008 that British Israelism is disproved with DNA evidence. How incompetent is that? And you expect these jokers to be honest administrators in the World Tomorrow?
We at the Painful Truth expect you Armstrongists to obey Romans 13 and not do the Gerald Waterhouse thing to dis our guy, because if you do, we will give you a headache by torturing you with science again! Just don’t do it. You will regret it! You don’t have structural visualization and we will give you truth you can’t handle! We’ll give you a Christmas present you won’t forget!
This brings us to a conclusion.
Just because we might not agree with the new President Elect, it does not mean that we can disrespect him or the office his to fulfill.
On the other hand, we have proved out over time by observing the patterns of behavior and the rank incompetence of the CoHAM leaders that they are certainly not deserving of our respect.
We highly recommend those still stupidly following the scoundrel moronic pastards to follow the admonition in the Bible commanded in II Timothy 3, enjoined upon all those who espouse Christianity:
“From such turn away.”
Boobie Thiel, the god of Thi’s.
You imbecile pathetic Armstrongists who follow the illusive Ph.D. from who knows where, when are you going to figure out that he’s a false prophet that you should completely ignore (unless you want to join us in mocking him)? Hillary Clinton lost. He didn’t see that coming. And worse, he wrote a whole book, compounding his error.
How can she be the AntiChrist if she just disappears into the twilight of past history?
It’s time to come clean and make the break.
Admit your folly and obey Scripture.
