Day of Atonement & Trump’s Gambit by Kerth Barker

Today, October 9th, 2019, is the Day of Atonement. On this day Torah-believing Jews and Gospel-believing Christians express gratitude for God’s forgiveness.

To make an act of atonement is to take some action that symbolizes faith and gratitude. This act of atonement can take many different forms. For Torah-believing Jews this can take place through a formal day of religious celebration. For Christians, atonement is usually a more personal thing. I think that all God really wants is to know that we believers have hearts of gratitude.

But this brings me to the point about Trump. Has Trump actually done something wrong that needs forgiving? It seems odd that these criminals in the Democratic Party and the News Media who are guilty of massive and horrific crimes are now accusing Trump of anything. They’re the ones who need to start trying to figure out what acts of atonement they might perform in order to receive forgiveness, if such forgiveness is even still possible for them.

However some of Trump supporters seem stressed and concerned about Trump’s situation. But those concerned need to understand what the word “gambit” means. In the game of chess it’s a strategic chess move, one in which the chess master makes himself appear vulnerable, opening himself to attack, but then takes advantage of his opponent’s poorly conceived attack.

Trump is not as vulnerable in an impeachment process as you might think. An impeachment is not so much a trial as it is an investigation. In this investigation, the President’s lawyers have the right to call anyone they want to onto the stand to answer any of their questions. It actually would give the President’s lawyers the right to investigate his accusers, endowing the President with powers of investigation that he doesn’t normally have.

It doesn’t take much imagination to realize this could go very badly for the dark queen (Pelosi) or the dark king (Biden) or their pawn (AOC). The impeachment would likely be like a chess game that ends with Trump is still standing tall, but where most of his opponents have been taken off of the chess board or checkmated.

So if you’re a Trump supporter, don’t worry, be happy. If the Democrats are really dumb enough to go forward with this impeachment, so be it.
