Hold on my friends to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.  ~ Daniel Webster

Ofttimes throughout history, God intervenes in the affairs of men and circumstance, which also demands that he pick out a certain type of individual for the purpose at hand.

I now make it my earnest prayer, that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection. ~ George Washington

As Caroline Rausch describes in a compelling essay on the topic of George Washington (available in the link down below): ‘There is an incredible account of Washington’s preservation when he was an officer in the British army under General Braddock during the French and Indian Wars. His regiment was attacked by Indians using guerrilla tactics. Braddock himself was mortally wounded and there was enormous loss of life (75% of the officers and more than 700 troops) due to the incompetence and confusion of Braddock himself. Washington wrote about this incident in a letter to his brother as follows: ‘I had four bullets through my coat, two horses were shot from under me, yet I escaped unhurt, though death was leveling my companions on every side around me’. Washington attributed this wonderful escape from even a wound, to the overruling providence of God.'[end]

Following the death of Washington in December 1799, and skipping across 100 years or so to the shores of Britain, Rausch unveils another such phenomenon, revealed in the early life of Winston Churchill [who] ‘appears to have had an uncanny prescience of his own destiny. While still at Harrow, in a conversation with his contemporary Sir Murland Evans, Winston (then 16) remarked: “I can see vast changes coming over a now peaceful world; great upheavals, terrible struggles, wars such as one cannot imagine … London will be attacked, and I will be very prominent in the defense of London.”[end]

Sir Winston (my boyhood hero) viewed himself very much as a champion of western democracy against the forces of tyranny and evil, being profoundly aware of just how much his own role and destiny would be required for its defeat. Indeed, throughout his life he believed that God had placed him on Earth to carry out heroic deeds for the protection of Christian civilization and human progress. Amazing intuitiveness in the mind of a 16-year-old.

Yet it came to pass. And successfully.

Which leads me to Patricia McCarthy and a third example of God’s intervention into the affairs of men with her piece on president Trump (link also available below): ‘In a Chinese restaurant the other day, my fortune cookie message was this: “Leaders are like eagles.  They don’t flock … you find them one at a time.” Not your usual fortune cookie note. No credit given for such a wise little sentence, probably because it is commonsense observation. This little bit of universal truth made me smile. It was a timely reminder of how fortunate we are to have elected Donald Trump, not a member of any flock, which is why the D.C. establishment hates him so much.’ [end]

Full disclosure – Yours truly has no access to the secrets of Heaven that aren’t available to others: rather I see, in the actions of fallible but fundamentally sound men, what appears to be direct Divine intervention. There is a purpose for the USA and – by God – we will fulfill it whether we like it or not.

President Trump invited to try out ‘Winnie’s’ favorite chair, July 2018 .. The two fighters of freedom would have got on famously…

Fact is of course, that president Trump’s real legacy may not be known until years from now. Chance plays a part too. Had they not happened to be in the right place at the right time, Washington and Churchill might well have been lost to history despite their numerous strengths and talents.

But GOD!

In the context of today’s Britain of course, the irony is that Churchill would likely be getting arrested for hate-speech and the like, not running for the House of Commons or serving as First Lord of the Admiralty; let alone being considered for Prime Minister.

Yet a century or more ago, it was a world into which he burst upon the scene thoroughly capable of making an enormous impact.

Which brings us to the ‘Trump effect’.

Yours truly voted for Trump against the alternative catastrophe of corruption and cronyism under the criminal Hillary Rob’em, which would’ve been nothing more than a hidden Obama third or fourth term, leading very likely to the total ruin and devastation of the Constitutional Republic as We the People revere it.

Each of the three leaders described here had a sense of their own moral obligation, iron will and resolve, in understanding the destiny lying ahead for their nations and even for themselves. The obvious take-away from this study is that all three men (president Trump still doing it of course) were willing to do the right thing regardless of the cost to themselves.

Trump’s legacy is thus-far unknown and still ongoing, but if he amasses a record even remotely comparable to those of Washington and Churchill, he’ll be more than well-remembered by history.

We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other. ~ John Adams, address to the military, Oct. 1798
