A cry was loud and plaintive —‘God help America!’

Many tyrannical world leaders have fallen to disgrace and humiliation. Who is 45 that disgrace and humiliation will not similarly befall him?

He reveals the inner workings of an emerging tyrant if he is not restrained by the checks and balances in both Houses of Congress…

Maybe God is helping America. When President Trump’s hand was raised in victory in January 2017, I said, “This isn’t over. It may just be beginning. God may have permitted “all the king’s men” to construct a corrupt tower that may soon come crashing down beneath the weight of its own fraudulence.”

“Uncharted” is commentary from Compton Herald publisher and editor, Jarrette Fellows, Jr.

45 is not in control. He may think he is, but God wakes him up every day, too, knows how many heartbeats he has left, knows the number of strains of hair on his head, controls his every breath. Yes, he can be humbled. Keep watching. Honestly, I don’t believe he even believes in God. The underhanded way he has handled business with others, the lies and deceit, disrespect for women, the manner in which he treats his wife — all are telltale. There’s too much of “I” in him “…what I did, …what I accomplished, …Executive Orders I signed.” He’s the kind of person that falls hard when it finally happens.

World leaders who were tyrants and fell to disgrace and humiliation — Nazi Germany’s Adolf Hitler, Japan’s Emperor Hirohito, and Tojo Hideki; Italy’s Benito Mussolini, Russia’s Josef Stalin, China’s Mao Zedong, the Balkans’ Slobodan Milosevic, Iran’s Saddam Hussein, Cambodia’s Pol Pot, Uganda’s Idi Amin Dada, and Haiti’s Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier, to name several who exercised tyrannical rule.

Who is Donald Trump that disgrace and humiliation will not similarly befall him? He is not a tyrant on the level of the aforementioned, but he reveals the inner workings of an emerging tyrant if he is not restrained by the checks and balances in both Houses of Congress.

The writer doesn’t wish dire circumstances upon the POTUS, but if he continues on his reckless path, God will permit him to self-destruct. The thread is unraveling. He will be subject to public disgrace and humiliation.
Keep watching.
