Something Different Than Grace

In an op-ed piece in June of 2018 in the Duluth Star-Tribune, MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell wrote

After more than 500 days with Donald Trump as our president - with record-low unemployment and a booming economy - it's clear, Minnesota, that we can rest easy...

When then-candidate Trump reached out to me in August 2016, some of my coworkers and employees were skeptical about his candidacy. But after I met with him in Trump Tower, all I could say was, "Wow!" I put my credibility on the line and went all-in for Donald Trump. It was clear his heart is committed to helping all Americans. I knew he would deliver.

President Donald Trump has not let me down. In fact, what he's accomplished so far is beyond what I ever expected.

Take it from a guy who knows all about how to rest easy. We can all rest easy with Trump helping to bring our economy back stronger than ever.

President Trump certainly has delivered- and accomplished far beyond what any of us expected, in a manner of speaking.  On Monday, CNBC reported

Millions of Americans already have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus crisis and the worst of the damage is yet to come, according to a Federal Reserve estimate.

Economists at the Fed’s St. Louis district project total employment reductions of 47 million, which would translate to a 32.1% unemployment rate, according to a recent analysis of how bad things could get.

The projections are even worse than St. Louis Fed President James Bullard’s much-publicized estimate of 30%. They reflect the high nature of at-risk jobs that ultimately could be lost to a government-induced economic freeze aimed at halting the coronavirus spread.

“These are very large numbers by historical standards, but this is a rather unique shock that is unlike any other experienced by the U.S. economy in the last 100 years,” St. Louis Fed economist Miguel Faria-e-Castro wrote in a research paper posted last week.

The rapidly rising death toll far more tragically attests to his commitment to deliver for "all Americans."

God bestowed upon the nation in 2016 his unmerited favor, Lindell argues.  However, the facts say otherwise.

On at least sixteen occasions from January 22 to March 10, 2020 (including three times on 2/10), President Trump in some manner minimized the severity of coronavirus and or COVIC-19.   Sixteen times the man whom Lindell says was a gift from God assured Americans that the virus was a mere annoyance. It was "very much under control" (2/9), "going very substantially down" (2/20), or "very mild" (3/2).

It is not common for God to mislead people.Yet, God's Chosen One, as Lindell views him, failed to take serious action until recently, giving Americans false hope and discouraging behavior which would limit the plague's spread. If Donald Trump's election was due to a supernatural force, it was no blessing.

As the prophet Nahum warned, God "takes vengeance" against the wicked, an adjective uniquely qualifying someone attempting to corner the market for a vaccine during a pandemic or sadistically separate parents and children for political gain.  Mike Lindell believes electing that individual as President was an act of God. If it was, all available evidence indicates it instead was- for whatever reason- an act of vengeance upon the nation.
