2016 Election Through the Eyes of Prophecy
By Dave Robbins
As we approach the presidential election on November 8, 2016 I don’t think the candidates could be more divided.
One is pro-life, the other is pro-choice. One is pro-gun, while the other is anti-gun. One believes global warming is a hoax, and the other claims the science is settled. One wants to build a wall, while the other is essentially for opening the borders. One believes in a traditional marriage between one man and one woman, while the other supports same-sex marriage. And the list goes on and on.
Each of these issues is certainly important and should be considered before making a final decision on who to vote for in November.
However, for those who follow prophecy, this upcoming election goes beyond that. Knowing that a world government is prophesied for the near future, one area that we are following closely is the ongoing process of globalization. (moving toward a global governing system)
It is possible that this upcoming election will set the course of the United States of America on a path toward either full involvement or total dissention from this prophesied world government. If everyone understood the prophecies concerning the future global political authority, the entire election would be determined on that issue alone. That is why we chose to devote an entire article to that subject in this magazine.
And yes, one candidate is vehemently opposed to globalization, while the other supports it in every way.
Since the next President of the United States will serve at least a four-year term, and quite possibly eight, we thought it would be important to let you see where each candidate stands on the important issues.
Why? With all the prophecies converging at the same time, it is likely that the next president will be in office during some of the most significant prophetic fulfillments concerning the end time.
Although there are more technical issues at hand (i.e. taxes, infrastructure, job creation, etc.), these do not necessarily show the character of an individual. That is why we have chosen the more defining topics which let us see the person behind the persona. In our opinion, these are the most critical.
Therefore, instead of giving you my opinion, I will let the candidates speak for themselves…
Are you pro-life? Mr. Trump, “Yes…It’s an issue. I mean it’s an issue, and it’s a strong issue…What I am saying is this: With caveats – life of the mother, incest, rape. That’s where I stand. So, I’m pro-life, but with the caveats. You have to have it with the caveats.” Pregnancy outside of those caveats? Mr. Trump stated, “It depends why?” “I’m, pro-life…very simple, pro-life.”[i]
“…friends of mine years ago were going to have a child, and it was going to be aborted. And it wasn’t aborted. And that child today is a total superstar, a great, great child. And I saw that. And I saw other instances. And I am very, very proud to say that I am pro-life.”[ii]
“Politicians have no business interfering with women’s personal health decisions. I will oppose efforts to roll back women’s access to reproductive health care, including Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. As president, I’ll stand up for Planned Parenthood and women’s access to critical health services, including safe, legal abortion,”[iii]
“The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.”[iv]
“I believe we need to protect access to safe and legal abortion, not just in principle, but in practice.”[v]
Trump: “It’s a Hoax…”
On December 30, 2015, Trump told the crowd at a rally in Hilton Head, S.C., “Obama’s talking about all of this with the global warming and…a lot of it’s a hoax. It’s a hoax. I mean, it’s a money-making industry, okay? It’s a hoax, a lot of it.”[vi]
In an “Energy Policy” speech in North Dakota on May 26, 2016 Trump stated, “…rescind all the job-destroying Obama executive actions including the Climate Action Plan…We’re going to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs.”[vii]
“There has been a big push to develop alternative forms of energy–so-called green energy–from renewable sources. That’s a big mistake. To begin with, the whole push for renewable energy is being driven by the wrong motivation, the mistaken belief that global climate change is being caused by carbon emissions. If you don’t buy that–and I don’t–then what we have is really just an expensive way of making the tree-huggers feel good about themselves.”[viii]
Clinton: The Science is Settled.
“It’s hard to believe that people running for president refuse to believe the settled science of climate change.”[ix]
“I believe in science. I believe that climate change is real and that we can save our planet while creating millions of good-paying clean energy jobs.”[x]
“Go talk to a scientist!” she said. “I really am tired of the debate, which is a phony debate. Climate change is real. It is here. It has to be dealt with.”[xi]
“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period…The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’t take it away. Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple…It’s been said that the Second Amendment is America’s first freedom. That’s because the Right to Keep and Bear Arms protects all our other rights. We are the only country in the world that has a Second Amendment.”[xii]
George Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right; that it’s not linked to service in a militia?” Mrs. Clinton replied, “I think that for most of our history there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice (Antonin) Scalia. And there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right – as we do with every amendment – to impose reasonable regulations. So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment…But I’m going to continue to speak out for comprehensive background checks; closing the gun show loophole; closing the online loophole; closing the so-called Charleston loophole; reversing the bill that Sen. (Bernie) Sanders voted for and I voted against, giving immunity from liability to gun makers and sellers. I think all of that can and should be done, and it is, in my view, consistent with the Constitution.”[xiii]
“When it comes to guns, we have just too many guns,” Clinton said. “On the streets, in our homes, in our neighborhoods.”[xiv]
“I am not here to make promises I can’t keep. I am here to tell you I will use every single minute of every day, if I am so fortunate enough to be your president, looking for ways that we can save lives, that we can change the gun culture…It is just too easy for people to reach for a gun to settle their problems. It makes no sense.”[xv]
“I was proud when my husband took [the National Rifle Association] on, and we were able to ban assault weapons, but he had to put a sunset on so, 10 years later, of course [President George W.] Bush wouldn’t agree to reinstate them…We’ve got to go after this…And here again, the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”[xvi]
“I don’t know enough details to tell you how we would do it or how it would work, but certainly the Australia example is worth looking at,” Clinton said at a New Hampshire town hall…The Australian program reduced the number of firearms in circulation by implementing a gun buy-back plan for citizens.[xvii]
Trump: “I will Build a Great, Great Wall…”
“You cannot have…illegal immigration. You don’t have a country if you have that…As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated. Public reports routinely state great amounts of crime are being committed by illegal immigrants. This must be stopped and it must be stopped now.”[xviii]
“I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.”[xix]
Mr. Trump responded to a question on mass deportation: “No, I would not call it mass deportations…We’re going to do it (deport illegals) in a very humane fashion. Believe me. I have a bigger heart than you do. We’re going to do it in a very humane fashion…I want terrorists out. I want people that have bad thoughts out. I would limit specific terrorist countries, and we know who those terrorist countries are.”[xx]
Clinton: “We will not Build a Wall.”
“We will not build a wall. Instead, we will build an economy where everyone who wants a good paying job can get one. And we’ll build a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants who are already contributing to our economy…I believe that when we have millions of hardworking immigrants contributing to our economy, it would be self-defeating and inhumane to kick them out.”[xxi]
“In 2003, I sponsored the DREAMER (sic) Act. I sponsored I think in every Congress after that. I have been consistent and committed to comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”[xxii]
Mrs. Clinton made this statement concerning Syrian refugees: “We’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II and I think the United States has to do more…I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 (incoming refugees) and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”[xxiii]
“I would stop (deportations) of the undocumented (illegal) people living in our country,” Clinton responded. “I do not want to see them deported…I want to see them on a path to citizenship. That’s exactly what I will do.”[xxiv]
“You can count on me to defend President Obama’s executive actions on DACA and DAPA when I am president,” Clinton said, referring to Obama’s 2012 (DACA) and 2014 (DAPA) executive amnesties, which gave work permits and access to federal benefits to millions of illegal immigrants.[xxv]
Trump: “…Repeal and Replace Obamacare…”
Speaking at the Iowa Freedom Summit in January 2015, Mr. Trump stated, “Someone has to repeal and replace Obamacare… (Obamacare is) a total catastrophe. It kicks in in 2016 and it will be a disaster. People are closing shops. Doctors are quitting the business. I have a friend who was a doctor and he says he has more accountants than patients. He needs that because it is complicated and terrible.”[xxvi]
“We are going to repeal Obamacare. We are going to replace Obamacare with something so much better.”[xxvii]
Clinton: “I will Defend the Affordable Care Act…”
“I will defend the Affordable Care Act, but as president I want to go further…I want to strengthen the Affordable Care Act.”[xxviii]
“You know, before it was called Obamacare it was called Hillarycare…”I am a staunch supporter of President Obama’s principal accomplishment, namely the Affordable Care Act.”[xxix]
Concerning Obamacare for illegal immigrants: “There are two steps here. If someone can afford to pay for an insurance policy off the exchanges that were set up under the Affordable Care Act, I support that. If they can afford it, they should be able to go into the marketplace and buy it. However, it is not going to apply to people who are in need of subsidies in order to afford that…What I do want to see is that we have more options for undocumented (illegal) people to be able to get the health care they need…It’s not only the right and moral thing to do for them. It’s also important that we keep ourselves healthy, and public health requires that. So I see this as a two-step process.”[xxx]
Trump: Bulk Data Collection is Fine
Mr. Trump said that he would be “fine” with restoring provisions of the Patriot Act to allow for the bulk data collection. “As far as I’m concerned, that would be fine,” Trump said.[xxxi]
Mr. Trump also told the Daily Signal, “I support legislation which allows the NSA to hold the bulk metadata. For oversight, I propose that a court, which is available any time on any day, is created to issue individual rulings on when this metadata can be accessed.”[xxxii]
Clinton: Does not Regret Her Vote on Patriot Act
Concerning plans for expanded online surveillance of potential extremist attackers: “We already know we need more resources for this fight. The professionals who keep us safe would be the first to say we need better intelligence to discover and disrupt terrorist plots before they can be carried out…That’s why I’ve proposed an ‘intelligence surge’ to bolster our capabilities across the board, with appropriate safeguards here at home.”[xxxiii]
During the Democratic Presidential debate on October 13, 2015 Anderson Cooper asked: “Governor Chafee, you and Hillary Clinton both voted for the Patriot Act which created the NSA surveillance program. You’ve emphasized civil liberties, privacy during your campaign…Secretary Clinton, do you regret your vote on the Patriot Act?”
Clinton replied, “No, I don’t. I think that it was necessary to make sure that we were able after 9/11 to put in place the security that we needed. And it is true that it did require that there be a process. What happened, however, is that the Bush administration began to chip away at that process. And I began to speak out about their use of warrantless surveillance and the other behavior that they engaged in. We always have to keep the balance of civil liberties, privacy and security. It’s not easy in a democracy, but we have to keep it in mind.”[xxxiv]
“Well, the NSA has to act lawfully. And we as a country have to decide what the rules are. And then we have to make it absolutely clear that we’re going to hold them accountable. What we had because of post-9/11 legislation was a lot more flexibility than I think people really understood, and was not explained to them.”[xxxv]
Real ID/National ID
Trump: No Stated Position
Clinton: Advocates a National ID
“In an interview (2003) on WABC radio, she said: “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants…Clearly, we have to make some tough decisions as a country, and one of them ought to be coming up with a much better entry-and-exit system so that if we’re going to let people in for the work that otherwise would not be done, let’s have a system that keeps track of them…at least a visa ID, some kind of entry-and-exit ID. And…perhaps, although I’m not a big fan of it, we might have to move towards an ID system even for citizens.”[xxxvi]
Trump: Supports the National E-Verify System
“Nationwide e-verify. This simple measure will protect jobs for unemployed Americans.”[xxxvii]
“You didn’t have E-Verify in those days like I do now where I’m building a building as an example, the old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue, I have E-Verify. Everything is perfect even though the Washington Post said, well, maybe it’s not perfect, but everything is absolutely perfect,” Trump added.[xxxviii]
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: “What are we going to do about illegal hiring?” Mr. Trump replied, “You can do that with e-verify.” Matthews, “Oh, are you for it?” Trump, “I’m for it. I use it.”[xxxix]
Clinton: No Stated Position
Trump: Opposes the TPP
“The TPP would be the death blow for American manufacturing…It would further open our markets to aggressive currency cheaters… (TPP) would also force American workers to compete directly against workers from Vietnam, one of the lowest wage countries on Earth…There is no way to ‘fix’ the TPP. We need bilateral trade deals…I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has not yet been ratified.”[xl]
Clinton: Supported it Before Opposing It
Hillary Clinton remarks to the Council on Foreign Relations, September 8, 2010: “We want to realize the benefits from greater economic integration. In order to do that, we have to be willing to play. To this end…we’re pursuing a regional agreement with the nations of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and we know that that will help create new jobs and opportunities here at home.”[xli]
In a February 4, 2016 Democratic debate, “I said that I was holding out the hope that (Trans-Pacific Partnership) would be the kind of trade agreement that I was looking for…I waited until it had actually been negotiated because I did want to give the benefit of the doubt to the (Obama) administration…Once I saw what the outcome was, I opposed it.”[xlii]
Trump: Remains Neutral
Mr. Trump states this, concerning the two-state solution, on his official campaign website, “I love Israel. I’m very pro-Israel. I would love to see a deal made between Israel and the Palestinians. It’s probably the hardest negotiation there is. Great negotiators have tried and they have failed. It’s just so deep-seeded, the hatred and the level of distrust. But I’m going to give it an awfully good shot. I want to remain as neutral as possible, because if you’re not somewhat neutral the other side is never going to do it. But just remember Israel, I love you. We’re going to see if we can get something done. It has to be done for both sides. It cannot continue to be the way it is. Let’s see what we can negotiate. Let’s see if it can be done.”[xliii]
“So with the president (Obama) in his final year, discussions have been swirling about an attempt to bring a Security Council resolution on terms of an eventual agreement between Israel and Palestine. Let me be clear: An agreement imposed by the United Nations would be a total and complete disaster. The United States must oppose this resolution and use the power of our veto, which I will use as president 100 percent.”[xliv]
Clinton: Advocates a Two-State Solution
“I will defend and do everything I can to support Israel, particularly as the neighborhood around it seems to become more dangerous and difficult…I also believe the Palestinians deserve to have a state of their own. That’s why I support a two-state solution. That’s what I have worked on. That’s what I tried to move forward when I was secretary, holding three very intense conversations between the prime minister of Israel and the president of the Palestinian Authority…I happen to think that moving toward a two-state solution, trying to provide more support for the aspirations of the Palestinian people is in the long-term best interests of Israel, as well as the region, and, of course, the people themselves.”[xlv]
Embassy to Jerusalem
“We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem. And we will send a clear signal that there is no daylight between America and our most reliable ally, the state of Israel.”[xlvi]
1999: “If I am chosen by New Yorkers to be their senator, or in whatever position I find myself in the years to come, you can be sure that I will be an active, committed advocate for a strong and secure Israel, able to live in peace with its neighbors, with the United States Embassy located in its capital, Jerusalem.”[xlvii]
Trump: “The United Nations is not a Friend…”
“Which brings me to my next point, the utter weakness and incompetence of the United Nations. The United Nations is not a friend of democracy, it’s not a friend to freedom, and it’s not a friend even to the United States of America where, as you know, it has its home. And it surely is not a friend to Israel.”[xlviii]
“By the way, United Nations — same thing, smaller numbers…Do they ever settle anything? It’s just like a political game. The United Nations — I mean the money we spend on the United Nations.”[xlix]
Clinton: “The United Nations is an Indispensable Organization…”
“My first observation is simple but it must govern all that we do: The United Nations is an indispensable organization to all of us – despite its flaws and inefficiencies. This means quite simply, that everyone here today, and governments everywhere, must decide that our global interests are best served by strengthening the U.N., by reforming it, by cleaning up its obvious bureaucratic and managerial shortcomings, and by improving its responsiveness to crises, from humanitarian to political.”[l]
Trump: Believes in Marriage Between One Man and One Woman
Asked what he would say to a married gay person questioning him on the issue, Trump said, “I really don’t say anything. I’m just, I’m just, I’m for traditional marriage.”[li]
Concerning the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage on June 26, 2015: “If I’m elected, I would be very strong on putting certain judges on the bench that I think maybe could change things…I don’t like the way they ruled. I disagree with the Supreme Court from the standpoint they should have given the state – it should be a states’ rights issue.”
When asked if he meant he would try to appoint justices to overrule the decision on same-sex marriage, Trump said, “I would strongly consider that, yes.”[lii]
When asked by Bill O’Reilly why he was against gay marriage, Trump replied, “I just don’t feel good about it. I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it and I take a lot of heat because I come from New York. You know, for New York it’s like, how can you be against gay marriage? But I’m opposed to gay marriage.”[liii]
Clinton: Supports Same-Sex Marriage
“LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. And they are full and equal citizens, and they deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage. That’s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law, embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for LGBT Americans and all Americans.”[liv]
Trump: No Benefits for Civil Unions
Trump told the Des Moines Register that he opposes giving gay couples the same benefits as married ones, a position that’s in stark contrast to his past support for gay rights on everything from domestic partner benefits and civil unions to gays serving openly in the military. Asked about his position legalizing gay marriage and giving “civil benefits” to gay couples, he replied, “No and no.”[lv]
Clinton: Supports Benefits for Civil Unions
“Well, I prefer to think of it as being very positive about civil unions. You know, it’s a personal position. How we get to full equality is the debate we’re having, and I am absolutely in favor of civil unions with full equality of benefits, rights, and privileges.”[lvi]
What kind of America do you want?
Be prayerful about your decision in November and may God’s will be done in our country.
God bless each and every one of us, and God bless the United States of America!
