Trump Aftershock: The President's Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America
Trump Aftershock is packed with information about every aspect of Trump’s presidency. I will note a few of the subjects covered. The Political Divide The author, Stephen Strang describes the Left/Right political divide in America in the past and since Trump was elected. The relentless negative and nasty attacks on Trump are noted and questioned. “For more than two years the media has conducted around the clock aerial bombing of the president’s character, motives and intelligence while ignoring and generally misrepresenting his accomplishments with the economy, jobs, taxes, foreign policy, the military and border security. The impression among a majority of the general public is that the media’s focus is predicated almost entirely on talking points and broadsides supplied by the DNC.”68
The Media and Soros The media are aggressively anti-Trump because far left billionaires including George Soros “have been on a spending spree over the past fifteen years, buying newspapers, funding websites and creating a phalanx of nonprofit advocacy groups to promote ultraliberal policies and to undermine conservatives and their organizations.”112 These billionaires “have contributed more than 2.7 billion since 2000 to groups pushing abortion, climate change alarmism, and gun control and supporting a long list of liberal politicians. Soros alone has spent at least $52 million building a network of newspapers, news organizations and journalistic institutions.”112 Soros funds as many as two hundred hard left groups and a long list of anarchist and ultraliberal causes. MoveOn.org, Black Lives Matter and Planned Parenthood are Soros’ favorites.114-115 “Virtually all the organizations involved in the anti-Trump demonstrations that rocked New York and other cities in January 2017 had ties to Soros.”115 “Soros also had ties to more than fifty protest groups involved with the Women’s March on Washington, DC the day after Trump’s election.”115
The Mueller investigation is ongoing and destructive. Congressman Louis Gohmert, former chief justice of the Twelfth Circuit Court of Appeals, published a detailed forty page report on Mueller. His report “lays out Mueller’s long and sordid history of illicitly targeting innocent people.”137 Read this book for example after example of this. “In a hearing on Paul Manafort’s case US District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III berated the government attorneys saying the case was false.”140 They didn’t care about Manafort; they only wanted to get to Trump and impeach him.
Israel Moving the U. S. Embassy to Jerusalem had profound meaning to the Jewish people. Israel is threatened by the Palestinians and by Syria. An interesting one state solution is proposed by the Messianic Jews in the United States. “There would be one Jewish state – Israel- and the nearly one million Arabs who live in the West Bank would be given a financial incentive to voluntarily relocate to neighboring Arab countries, which would also be financially incentivized to receive and assist in resettling them.”201 Most of the Palestinians would love to accept this offer.
At the back of the book is a six page list of things Donald Trump has achieved in his first 500 days in office. In one of the final chapters Strang points out that some of the changes Trump has made will last for decades.
The book is indexed and has thirty-six pages of Endnotes. This book will reveal what the media doesn’t tell you and show you the many things Donald Trump has already accomplished.
Best quote: Franklin Graham says Trump “defends the Christian faith more than any president in my lifetime.”206
