PCG's resident McCarthyite, Andrew Müller, shrilly insists that the legal problems facing their beloved president, Donald Trump, constitutes some sort of "civil war" against PCG's preferred president.
Bureaucrats in Washington are waging a civil war against the Trump administration. He said he wanted to “drain the swamp,” but the swamp is fighting back. Many commentators are saying that something called the “deep state” is trying to exert its control over the United States government to the point of forcing President Trump from office. (Andrew Müller, Is the ‘Deep State’ Real?, July 2018.)The possibility that President Trump just might have some part in causing his current legal issues is casually ignored.
One subheading in Müller's article is entitled, "Deep State Coup d’état" even though Müller's preferred president is still in the White House and holds the vast power of the presidency. It is not a coup d’état until the leader is removed.
Furthermore the impeachment process is not a coup d’état at all but a constitutional law that allows the Congress and the Senate to remove the President if there are enough votes to make the removal occur. And since Republicans currently hold the majority of both Congress and the Senate it seems at present unlikely that they will let such a process occur. (Of course that might change after the midterm elections but that is what happens in a democracy. The people are allowed to vote out the incumbent Representative or Senator.)
The impeachment process is not a civil war or a coup d’état. Shouldn't Müller and the editors of PCG's recruitment magazine, namely Gerald Flurry, Stephen Flurry, Joel Hilliker, Brad Macdonald, Richard Palmer, Jeremiah Jacques, Dennis Leap and Phillip Nice, be ashamed of promoting this alarmist misunderstanding?
Müller insists that the people are ultimately to blame for the "deep state's" sinister plot to overthrow PCG's preferred president (to replace him with Vice President Pence apparently).
It is not a coincidence that the deep state has risen as the morality of the nation has fallen. Blasphemy, corruption, covetousness, family breakdown, hatred, idolatry, murder, sexual sins and thievery have consumed America. People have abandoned personal responsibility and biblical morality. They have embraced selfish individualism, social welfare and materialism. As a result, they look to the government to provide, instead of relying on God. By delegating more and more power to the central authority of a human-run government, American citizens have created an administrative state with the power to confiscate the freedoms of those who oppose it.Well, at least when one is aided by the government it is a decision made by a government blessed with democracy and popular support. Meanwhile PCG's 1% live off of the tithes and offerings of PCG lay members and co-workers. PCG's leader, Gerald Flurry, once boasted of PCG having an income of "around $19.5 million annually as of 2012" and that income is how PCG's 1% rule over the lay members of PCG.
While millions of Americans may now be waking up to the threat this sprawling network of deep-state departments presents to the nation, their populist revolution does not address the root causes behind this crisis. Corruption and bitter division in America today is leading to a conflict so devastating that the whole country will be laid desolate, and its cities will burn with fire. These serious problems are not caused by one man or a group of government officials. Ultimately, they are caused by the sins of the American people as a whole. Only the repentance of the people can prevent the sickness in America’s government from escalating into full-scale revolution and war.Armstrongism has been constantly promoting doom and gloom to anyone who will listen since the 1930s. Armstrongism gets people upset and scared that disaster will occur but they insist that they have the answer to avoiding this disasters while all the outsiders, unbelievers and infidels (in their eyes) are to endure the horrors of nuclear World War III. Just convert and join their organization and listen to what the 1% of the organization tell you to do for the rest of your life to get that ticket to the place of safety while the world of the outsiders (in their eyes) burn. What a rotten system Armstrongism is.
May their efforts to gain more converts fail. May their efforts to get more tithes payers fail.
