Trump Will Make Jesus Come Back.

Frank Amedia.

Frank Amedia, a pastor who says he is serving in a volunteer capacity as Donald Trump’s “Christian policy” liaison, said last month that God told him last year that Trump would win the GOP nomination and that he believes Trump has been “raised up” to help pave the way for the Second Coming.

Amedia spoke with Steve Strang, the founder of the Pentecostal magazine Charisma, on Strang’s podcast on the day Donald Trump effectively won the Republican presidential nomination; the podcast was posted online last week.


“In this instance, it’s not because Donald Trump has heralded his faith or the name of God, but the Lord has put His favor upon him, and how amazing it is that the favor of God can overcome so many mistakes, so many bumbles, so many things that otherwise we would think would destroy somebody in business, destroy them in politics, destroy them in relationships. But yet it’s very evident it was the will of the Lord to do this and here we sit now.”

Amedia then told Strang that he believes there is “a skirmish going on” in the “heavenlies” right now that “is the beginnings of the preparation of the way of the coming of the Lord.”

As part of this preparation for the Second Coming, he said, a “breaker anointing” has taken place, giving Trump the power to break up “established norms” that have not served the “Kingdom of God.” (This is a reference to a passage in the Old Testament Book of Micah about the end of days.)

Breaking up the established norms. Hmm, okay, I think that can be translated as “only white, straight christians who are politically incorrect are okay, yessir!”

“And this breaker anointing is manifesting in so many different facets on earth today,” he said. “One of them is the political realm, one of them is right here in the United States, and I perceive that Donald Trump has been raised up with that breaker anointing to just begin to crush all of the strangleholds that have been placed upon this country. And, let’s face it, this country influences the world. And the positions that he’s taken, albeit in not quite the personality that you and I would walk out into, is accomplishing in establishing a lot of what were established norms and are established norms that haven’t been very effective at all on serving the principles of the Kingdom of God.”

Um, Frank, I hate to break this to you, but just up there ^, you were yakking about Jesus coming back, raining down destruction and all that; now you’re yakking about how Trump is gonna make this a god huggin’ power to be feared country again, dominating the world, and taking its rightful place as bestest country ever. I think you need to pick here. Hmmm. Jesus or power. Power or Jesus. Power…or what now?

    Whilst checking to see if this kook has an entry in The Encyclopedia of American Loons (he doesn’t), I found a priestkook that would be even more to teh trum-prat’s liking:

    #630: Mark Downey

    […] Reverend Downey is the culprit behind the “Christian Identity” website Kinsman Redeemer Ministries, which is a good place to go to give up all hopes for humanity. Downey’s main tenet is that the so-called “Chosen People” of the Bible are […] not the Jews, at least not today’s Jews, but rather the Germanic, Celtic, Scandinavian, and Anglo-Saxon peoples. And thus you may get an impression of the direction in which Downey is headed. And indeed: Adolf Hitler showed the world the mercy and loving kindness of Positive Christianity, he says, but we failed to listen and were instead fooled by a Jewish conspiracy to view Hitler as evil. Yes, that’s the idea, and even among the most insane it will probably remain a minority view for some time. As for anti-semitism, Downey has revived most myths from ancient and medieval times. How many of the innocent youngsters you see on milk cartons have fallen prey to the ceremonial knives of rabbis and lie buried in secret graves or were ground up into dog food in some jewish-owned processing plant? asks Downey in his series of articles charmingly titled Why We Hate the Jews […].

    But Downey isn’t quite done. The whole idea of the notion of “Kinsman Redeemer” is that Jesus came to redeem not all humans, but his kinsmen. His kinsmen were the white people (since, as most renaissance paintings so accurately depict him, Jesus was blond and blue-eyed). It doesn’t really help, then, that Downey actually purports to reject “white nationalism” — he rejects white nationalism since white nationalism is, according to Downey, a pagan movement. Instead, he prefers to view his ideas as “Christian nationalism”, which combines the main tenets of white nationalism with dominionism and hysterical endtimes babble. It is not as charming as it sounds.

    Of course, Downey and his group also rejects evolution — not on technical grounds but because evolution implies common descent and by the inference rule of Downey’s wacky wishful thinking evolution must therefore be false. Instead they claim that all races were created separately (and should not be mixed — race mixing adulterates God’s plan for the Ages) and that the different races represent not only different species, but different genera (no, they do not exhibit any trace of having the faintest idea what that would mean).

    To really emphasize their fervent contempt for reality, they are also 9/11 troofers […], and promote the idea that the levees of New Orleans were destroyed on purpose by the guv’mint during Hurricane Katrina, which, alongside most other natural disasters, was a punishment from God for America’s rejection of God’s laws on race in any case. […]

    Like the Encyclopedia of American Loons, I won’t actually link to this kook’s site, but when searching for whether or not he supports teh trum-prat, I found a not-so-charming (and largely incoherent) screed. Some excerpts:

    Donald Trump is the designated hitter in the Game for student body president, because it doesn’t rise above the animal level of donkey and elephant and doesn’t even come close to the stature of the government of Christ. […] They [The Establishment –blf] can even pretend to be the opposition party, a controlled opposition: during Reconstruction, northern newspapers hired thugs to commit atrocities in the name of the KKK; today, the CIA and Mossad pretend to be opposed to ISIS, when, in fact, they created and manipulate ISIS. I contend that the Establishment pretends to be opposed to Trump, when in fact, everything indicates a sloppy charade as flimsy as the inside job of 9/11. […]
    Trump is not a loose cannon, but a big gun, big enough to throw the election much more elegantly than Ross Perot. Please tell me what’s the difference between the Democratic Party’s foreign policy establishment and the GOP’s neocon establishment? What if I told you that the left wing and the right wing belong to the same turkey? That liberals as well as conservatives, for fear of the jews, serve the same master. Both are firmly entrenched in what ‘Ike the kike’ warned about: a military industrial complex, that he didn’t finish explaining, which is perpetual wars for the kingdom of IsraeLIE’s global economy. […]
    [… M]any White people put their faith in a two-legged savior, not to say that heroes like William Wallace, Nathan Bedford Forrest and Adolph Hitler rescued their people from the establishments of their day […]

    I can’t actually work out if this bigoted nutter is for or against Trump — the incoherence doesn’t help, and he’s all over the map (e.g., not included above, is a almost-coherent and, astonishingly, largely correct, criticism of Trump) — but he would seem to a good match.

    Amusingly, he also claims America’s first dictator [was] Abe Lincoln, calls secular humanism a religion, and much less amusingly, refers to the Orlando mass murder as the alleged Whorlando Homocaust, the supposed recent mass shooting of sodomites in Orlando. He seems to think that was false flag operation, albeit I have no clew why (he probably doesn’t either!), partly because I gave up when I got to We have a locust problem in America and Europe; swarms of racial aliens devouring our land. Negress Attorney General Loretta Lynch, had the audacity or perhaps New Age imbecility to suggest, in light of the Whorlando false flag operation, that radical Islamic terrorism can only be fought with “love.” This is what the dark skinned imbeciles running our nation represent […].

    Oh, and did you know Most people are unaware of the fact that the logo of the EU is a depiction of an unfinished Tower of Babel with the motto ‘Europe: many tongues, one voice.’ Well, yes, most people are unaware of that patent nonsense.

    erm. . .

    Correct me if I am wrong here, but he is claiming that Trump will bring about the second coming? Seven years of hell on earth? Decimation of the world’s population? The rise of the anti-Christ (Mary’s sister?)? The destruction of most of the world?

    Oh, yeah. We need to elect him. Put Trump in a position in which he can unleash nuclear destruction on the world (by fire next time!) and send humanity back to a primitive hunter/gatherer/farmer (assuming there is unpoisoned soil to till).

    Some people scare the shit out of me.

    On the kook in the OP, this is “good”, for certain laugh-out-loud values of “good”, Trump’s Christian Policy Adviser Believes He Single-Handedly Stopped a Tsunami and Healed Cancer:

    […] Amedia is a faith-healing pastor and self-described “apostle” and “prophet” who claims to have healed cancer with the power of prayer, calls AIDS the result of “unnatural sex,” and says he once stopped a tsunami by appealing to Jesus.
    District court dockets and media reports show that in 2001, Amedia admitted in court to having participated in an effort to bribe an Ohio prosecutor to drop a case against a car-dealer friend who had been charged in an odometer rollback scheme. The bribery plan failed, and the car dealer was convicted. Amedia received immunity for his testimony against the dealer.
    [… I]n a 2012 interview on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, he claimed to have stopped the 2011 tsunami in Japan from hitting the coast of a Hawaiian island that his daughter happened to be visiting. I stood at the edge of my bed and I said, ‘In the name of Jesus, I declare that tsunami to stop now’, he recalled. It was seen by 400 people on a cliff. It was on YouTube. It was actually on the news that that tsunami stopped 200 feet off of shore.

    And one(of several) appalling not-funny bit:

    In 2010, Amedia traveled to Haiti, where his ministry was providing aid and food to earthquake survivors. Amedia was interviewed at the time for an Associated Press story about recent clashes between missionaries like himself and Haitian practitioners of voodoo. Amedia told the AP that he would consider cutting off food aid to Haitians if they did not give up voodoo, because we wouldn’t want to perpetuate that practice. We equate it with witchcraft, which is contrary to the Gospel.

    Yep. And apparently, Amerikkka will be the crown on the shit planet.

    You and me both. I’ve been terrified for months, and that hasn’t been relieved at all.

    I never thought about it this way. People who go to heaven are refugees, aren’t they?

    Except unlike most real-world refugees, they expect to mooch off of the bounty of the land and not pay or work for it.

    Related… I have no idea how reliable the site is, but since I found it via a newslink at the SPLC, I will assume it’s reasonable, Conspiracy Nuts Voting for Trump, Study Finds:

    Social media analytics company Demographics Pro scoured social media sites and found that people who spend their time spewing paranoid theories and rants also tend to be Trump supporters. According to the study […], followers of Trump on Twitter are 4.2 times more likely than Hillary Clinton followers to tweet about the New World Order. In addition, almost 40 percent of those tweeting about #NewWorldOrder follow Trump; just 9.3 percent follow Clinton.

    In case you’re unfamiliar, the NWO is a doozy of a conspiracy theory […]:

    The NWO is believed to be a global movement orchestrated by the globalists with the goal of world domination. The endgame is to prune the world’s population down to a manageable 10% of its current size; to enslave the people through a campaign of manufactured wars, false-flag terror attacks, artificially created pandemics, and poisoned drinking water to keep the masses dumbed down and pliable; a global LGBT movement to discourage reproduction, etc.

    All of these ideas are actively pushed by Infowar’s Alex Jones, a man who has dedicated his life to propagating — usually by yelling himself red in the face […] — every paranoid, insane theory that exists. […] So it follows that followers of Jones are also 4 times more likely to follow Trump than to follow Clinton. The study found 31.9 percent of those who follow Jones also follow Trump. Just 8 percent of Jones followers overlapped with Hillary followers.
    “We had a much larger list, but right down the line the correlation was pretty clear,” Corey McCarren of Demographics Pro told the Daily Beast. “It’s three to four times more people tweeting about conspiracies who follow Trump {than Clinton}. Illuminati was on there, too.”
