A Victory for America 

By Vic Kohring, November 10, 2016 

America has been pulled back from the brink. As I sat behind my computer monitoring the election returns shortly after midnight on November 9th, I fretted a Hillary Clinton victory. The big government advocates and establishment politicians were pushing hard to elect their chosen one and the leftist press was in full, around-the-clock attack mode, trying to destroy Donald Trump and sway the election. Pro-Hillary pollsters were working overtime to manipulate voters by publishing skewed numbers falsely suggesting a Clinton landslide was imminent. The idea was to deceive Trump voters into discouraging them, giving up and staying home from the polls. 

There was evidence of widespread cheating and election fraud by the Clinton political machine. People were supposedly voting twice and the dead were being registered to vote including four million deceased who were on the voter rolls by Election Day. Hillary voters were crossing state lines (many reportedly bussed) to vote in more than one state where no identification is required, a faulty provision in law the Democrat Party has exploited and fought for years to keep as it represents cheap, easy, unverified votes. There were reports in California - a state where no proof of ID is required - of Hillary people voting up to a half-dozen times each.

Voting machines and computer software were tampered with. Barack Obama went on TV and shamelessly encouraged illegal aliens to cast a ballot. VoteFraud.org investigated and found that approximately three million illegal aliens ultimately voted, the vast majority unquestionably for Hillary. And Republican voters were harassed and intimidated with violence. YouTube is full of examples including one lady who's living room window was broken out with a large rock. Another was dragged out of his car and beaten.

All of this was part of a strategy designed to steal the election for Hillary. If not for the cheating, Trump no doubt would have won in a Reaganesque wipeout instead of a relatively narrow margin in the electoral count. And he would have likely won the popular vote. Yet his tsunami of support barely crested Hillary's wall of fraud. Even Alaska's two Republican U.S. senators cowardly jumped on Hillary's bandwagon, denouncing Trump and withdrawing their support at the last minute. The same for other political milk-toast weaklings like Sen. John McCain, the failed 2008 Republican nominee, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, every one of whom now have egg on their faces. It all left little room for optimism for the average, unsuspecting Trump voter. 

Adding to the dismay of many was Hillary's dubious conduct through the years. The chronic lying and deceit was a sorry display. Endangering literally every American by compromising national security from exposing classified material with a private email server hidden inside the basement of her home gave away highly confidential information to our enemies bent on our destruction. The secret email system was allegedly intended to conceal illicit activities of the Clinton Foundation sham, a front for pilfering money for Bubba and Hillary's use as a personal slush fund from millions in "donations" - bribes really - from selling her position as secretary of state to the highest foreign bidders including billionaire Saudi's.  

Then for Hillary to outright lie that no classified emails were ever sent or received by her from her personal, highly vulnerable account (contrary to FBI Director Comey's testimony), having them deleted from her server and using special, sophisticated software to "acid wash" and permanently wipe the server clean as well as smashing email-containing laptop computers and iphones with a hammer - all after receiving a subpoena from Congress requiring that she turn over evidence as part of an official investigation, was a major criminal cover-up and erased any remaining doubts that the Clinton's are not corrupt and reminiscent of a mafioso, syndicate crime family. 

Such lying under oath, destroying evidence and obstructing justice would have landed anyone else in jail, probably for decades. But not Hillary. The equally corrupt Obama Administration protected her from prosecution, from the "Justice" Department to the FBI to the State Department, all of whom collaborated as political hack agencies to block an indictment. It was a gross abuse of power by our president, unprecedented in history, and made Nixon's Watergate look like a Sunday picnic by comparison. Then there was Hillary's vigorous defense of her serial rapist husband who was impeached by Congress for lying to a grand jury during his presidency. You can't get any uglier.

I prayed for God's intervention as I know many Americans did. As I went about my business driving around my hometown of Wasilla on Election Day, I asked that God help our country. The thought of four more years of a socialist agenda that promotes massive government control of us "deplorables," led by corrupt, anti-Christian leaders was frightening. It could have spelled disaster and proved the death knell of the United States as we know it. 

While Trump is no saint and a little rough around the edges, he's an extraordinarily adept and successful businessman and leader. He believes as do most conservatives in less government influence in society, greater individual liberty, low taxes, limited regulation of small business and a strong private sector.  He's straightforward and brutally honest. And most important, he's a man of faith, even if kept largely to himself and not shouted from the mountaintops as with most politicians. This is precisely what we need in a president and a vast improvement over the current White House occupant. 

After praying, I placed my trust in God that He would do what was best for our country. I felt peace for the first time in a long while. When the electoral votes revealed Trump the winner hours later, it was clear God had intervened. I breathed a huge sigh of relief, realizing our eight-year national nightmare was about to end.

We were truly at a crossroads on November 8th and thankfully chose a new direction. As Ronald Reagan used to say, "It's morning in America again." I feel like it's a new dawn after so many dark years and am thankful we did not slip into the abyss and reach a point of no return. But it was very close as we dodged the proverbial bullet. 

This election experience does indeed prove that good triumphs over evil. Proverbs 14:19 says, "The evil bow before the good and the wicked at the gates of the righteous." God's hand was no doubt on the election, helping Trump win one for America.
