Well, as they say, the gloves are off. The state known for tropical oranges will now be known for the moment when America outed itself as a Banana Republic. Trump’s residence being raided by a federal policing service was the crossing of a proverbial Rubicon.
It is now clear—if it wasn’t before—that the Land of the Free is also a country wherein former presidents have their homes raided for purely political reasons by corrupt regimes. Stand aside Sandinistas, the Biden regime is hell-bent on showing they will not be outdone.
Whatever one may think about Donald Trump, it is clear that he is a fly in the globalist ointment. Yes, my friends and colleagues who have decided to choke on red pills will say that he was always a “psy-op” or that the man was just an opportunist who feigned political ideals in order to win the greatest reality TV show in the world—the presidency.
Orthodox. Faithful. Free.

It may very well be that the Donald is not St. Donald the Great or a Holy Catholic Monarch, but at this point I think it is foolish to think that he is just a globalist tool or an opportunist politician. Whatever he is, the Left and the Marxists hate him, and it is clear they will stop at nothing to take him, and everyone associated with him, down. For all his flaws, he is the man who brought in the judges who took away Moloch’s insatiable stranglehold over American law, which is why the so-called Trump Derangement Syndrome is clearly more like a manifestation of the demonic.
Even if Trump is your enemy, he is the enemy of your enemy and therefore an unlikely friend in this war for civilization.
One Catholic prelate understood this as much or better than anyone, and that is Archbishop Viganò. In 2020, the archbishop released a number of powerful and striking letters about then-president Trump and the impending election. In his letter from June 7, the former Nuncio to the United States began by saying that “we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness.”
He claimed that the “children of light” represent the majority of society and that those who have given themselves over to the dark side are in the minority, even if they are more effective or influential for the time being.
I have to agree with this, as it matches scriptural references to the fact that the fallen angels are a fraction of the good angels but demonstrate a disproportional power over the fallen human race.
He added: “[The children of light] are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media.”
He continued with what seemed like a reference to the book of the Apocalypse, speaking of a “clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent.”
On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day—if they do not repent—yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.
These comments by Viganò are exactly correct, in my opinion. In our world today, there are many people who still have enough sense to listen to their gut, to try and follow the Natural Law, even if they do not have the words to describe it. You don’t have to be a Catholic to understand that grooming kids is wrong, or that killing infants in the womb is evil. Normal non-serpentine people understand these things without having to have it explained to them.
But it is true that there is a contingency of borderline possessed or sociopathic individuals who will stop at nothing and be stopped by no metaphysical moral principles on their quest to damn the human race.
For whatever reason, Trump—warts, bad haircut, failed marriages and all—manifested as something like an instrument of Providence to lead the flawed yet sane people of the free world against the sulphuric nutjobs who want to turn the world’s most influential nation into a carbon copy of the CCP.
The recent raid of Trump’s home just confirms what Viganò said in that letter from June 2020 about the “children of darkness” stopping at nothing to bring down any semblance of goodness and truth.
In his October 2020 letter to the former president, Viganò added emphatically that it was Trump (or whatever Trump represents) who stood between a deep state takeover and a free and sane America.
He wrote: “It is you, dear President, who are ‘the one who opposes’ the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness.”
Again, whatever you think about Trump, it is clear that the deep state views him as almost an existential threat, and they will stop at nothing to take him down. This must give us pause.
Much like in Scripture when it is the demons who attest to the divinity of Christ, it is almost like the demonic globalists can’t help but attest by their hatred for Trump that he is the leading figure of an America that Viganò labeled: “The defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed.”
What the fallout from the raid at Mar-a-Lago will be remains to be seen, but one thing we can be sure about is that Viganò was right about Trump.
