Greatness or Ignominy?

 AC points out that President Trump is defining his place in history this week.

Trump will either be remembered for all of time as the greatest leader in all of history, who went on to save the greatest nation in the world, against all odds, from the worst traitors the world has ever seen. Or he will be remembered as a leader who went all the way up to the finish line, and yet through betrayal by aides or defeat by the enemy, heart-breakingly failed to make it over the finish line and allowed the greatest, freest nation in the world to fall, probably more spectacularly than any nation in history ever has. 

There is no way to overemphasize what we are watching. We still speak the names of Caesar and Brutus, and marvel at the fall of Rome today. Someday, it is entirely possible, likely even, that the events we are witnessing firsthand, will dwarf the story of Rome, and every other empire, in the history books. It is even possible, this story will mark the fall of an entity which was behind the fall of so many other empires before us, and yet was completely unknown until at this moment it was dragged into the light and slain by our God Emperor.

All we can do at this point is pray, watch, and hope. But I think we have a pretty good idea what path the God-Emperor has chosen at this point, given what U.S. troops were doing last night in Washington DC.

“They are stopping every car trying to get out of city on 23rd Street. Asking for ID.”

And what is their exit strategy?

More than 20,000 national guardsmen are expected to deploy to the nation’s capital to provide additional security during President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20, but critics warn the National Guard appears to lack an exit strategy. “We have no metric for what success looks like,” said one high ranking officer. “Is it an hour after the man is sworn in? Is it when the protesters have all left? We just don’t know.”

I suspect we all know who does.
