“Say oh Allah! The Sovereign Lord of all dominions; You grant dominion to whoever You will and take away dominion from whoever You will; You exalt whoever You will and abase whoever You will; In your hand alone are all good things and You are capable of doing all things. You cause the night to enter the womb of the day and You cause the day to enter the womb of the night; You bring forth the living from the dead, just as you bring forth the dead from the living; Yours is the sustenance of existence and You alone can grant sustenance to whoever You will beyond reckoning….’’ Q. 3:26-27
By next Tuesday (January 20, 2021), God willing, it will be exactly four years since a reincarnate of Adolf Hitler emerged in the United States of America (USA), in the name of Ronald John Trump. His mission was to replay Hitler’s drama of calamity that gripped the world by the jugular between 1939 and 1945 with a virtual change of destiny. But as usual, the gracious will of Allah prevailed to signify safety for mankind.
The fortuitous drama that beclouded American democracy in the past two months was not for America alone. It was for the entire world, not as spectators, but as students in the classroom of the Qur’an as quoted above.
From the contents of those quoted two verses, it should ordinarily behoove any sensible student to learn the vital lesson that attainment of power, in any field of human endeavour, is neither by mortal wisdom nor by demonic arrogance. The same Allah who deposed the Egyptian Pharaoh of yore with unimaginable disgrace and destroyed the destructive power of Adolf Hitler of the 20th century, is still alive and will remain alive forever. He neither sleeps nor slumbers. Allah Akbar!
This article is a reminder of an article written and published in this column, by yours sincerely, on Friday, January 20, 2017. In that article, I predicted what would become of the United States of America (USA) at the instance of that country’s newly smuggled President, called Donald John Trump, who found his way into the White House with no respect for fairness or merit.
The article was entitled ‘Welcoming a Trump of Sadism’.
Two weeks before the publication of that article, an earlier article appeared in this same column which was also written by yours sincerely on January 6, 2020. It was entitled ‘Waiting for January 20’, 2017. Through those two articles, the ardent readers of this column must have been able to confirm that an intuitive person does not have to fraudulently claim to be a prophet before predicting certain future occurrences of this world, based on foresight.
For the rightly guided people, prediction is surely not the same as prophecy. It is only fraudsters that can claim to be prophets while expressing their unattainable demonic wishes. And, it takes gullibly blind believers to be followers of those fraudsters.
Some excerpts from the two mentioned articles above are as follows:
“….Like the hands of a clock, many democratic countries in the world do swear a new President into office every four or five years at the expiration of a previous tenure. Now, it is the turn of the United States of America to do that again. And, the man to take charge, presidentially, as from today, (January 20, 2017), for the next four years, all things being equal, is called Donald John Trump. That is a man who most people in the world, including the
Americans who voted for him, have seen as a wild bull surging furiously into a china shop. From his conduct even before assuming office, they had realized that this wild bull could become a nemesis of the world’s champion of democracy”.
In an earlier article entitled ‘Waiting for January 20’ and published in this column on January 6, 2017, yours sincerely cited the example of Adolf Hitler’s oath of office and his inaugural address of 1933 that culminated in the World War II which started in 1939 and ended in 1945. The dramatic events within that period of 12 years (1933-1945) were the main determinants of today’s world history”.
An excerpt from that article goes thus in part:
“…All eyes, across the world, are on the 20th day of January 2017. That is the day that the new American President elect, Donald John Trump, will be formally ushered into the ‘White House’ in Washington, with a swearing in ceremony. He will be the 45th American President. That the entire world is waiting for this event is a confirmation of America’s leadership of the contemporary world. There is no doubt that this event will be historically electric, positively or negatively, depending on the personal conduct of the occupier of the White House. A similar wait had taken place in February 1933, in Germany, when Adolf Hitler was sworn into office as the Chancellor of that country. The speech which he (Hitler) delivered on that occasion eventually altered the destiny of Germany and reshaped the geography of the world.
Incidentally, Donald Trump’s ancestral origin is Germany. He can therefore be called a grand cousin of Hitler. Now, will Trump of the 21st century replay the posture of Hitler of the 20th century to put the world on the path of another World War? That is a major question that the unfolding events of the days ahead may have to answer fundamentally about how an untamed shrewd can cope with the delicate situation of the China shop.
The Meaning of Trump
The name TRUMP is a short form of trumpet, a musical instrument with which the decision of a tyrant is often announced in a local cultural setting. Ever since he was declared the winner of the American Presidential election of November 2016, this Trump has been trumpeting his tyrannical plans, arrogantly, as a threat to the world, just as Hitler did during his early days as the German ‘Furrah’. And, the jitters he is rolling out of that trumpet have started to grip the world with an icy hand. That an American President elect had begun to overrule his still serving predecessor even before taking the oath of office is a clear indication of what the world should expect from the china shop in which a wild bull will start to operate as from today (January 20, 2020)”.
History as a Teacher
History is a well known phenomenal teacher. It teaches the old and the young alike. Its students are always drawn from far and near. It examines those students from time to time and gives them examination results periodically, either as a symbol of promotion or that of demotion. History’s lessons are as generational as they cut across races and cultures. Yet, it has no peculiar language of communication. But then, it faces a fundamental problem. That problem is not in the repetition that has characteristically become the culture of history but in getting mankind to understand its repeated lessons as well as in heeding its warnings”.
“In virtually all celestial religions, history plays such a prominent role that gives it the permanent identity of a teacher. And, from its beneficial teachings, human beings build ladders of experiences with which they mount the pyramids of life”. Incidentally, a laughable aspect of the tragic drama currently unfolding in America, over that country’s 2020 presidential election, is the silhouette of a Nigerian ‘Orubebe’ that was ridiculously displayed by Trump himself in his desperate bid to truncate the results of his own conducted election. Who could have imagined that such a third world drama as ‘Orubebe saga’ could be so attractive to the self-appointed model of democracy that the principal bull in that country’s Chnina shop could become a student in Nigeria’s ‘Orubebe’ school? And, as that unfathomable drama was running, a retinue of satanic ‘prophets’ queued up, here in Nigeria, as potential actors, dishing out satanic prophecies of victory for an obviously sinking Trump in America’s political mud.
Now, with America’s eventual riddance of evil, where are the Nigerian agents of the Lucifer whose wishful demonic wishes had pervasively throbbed the Nigerian media waves with deafening effect? And now, as America becomes demystified democratically so have Nigeria’s satanic prophets have been de-robbed psychologically.
Irony of Life
Who could have imagined, in 2017, when Trump was surreptitiously smuggled into American White House, as President, that the same arrogant Trump could be indefinitely banned along with over 70,000 of his supporters, from the global web of Tweeter? Does that not confirm to the world of today that if a Pharaoh of yore could be disgraced with deposition and Red Sea sinking, a Trump of the modern time can also be disgraced with indefinite Tweeter banning and legislative impeachment with permanent official deprivation of public office? Allah Akbar!
The Reality of Allah’s Existence
For sensible people who are not astray, today’s American political drama is a pregnant incident with a variety of issues which call for thorough analysis. Since January 20, 2017, when the wild bull strayed into the China shop in America, a glaring indication had become manifest that another thorny bud was wildly growing under the armpit of an American bitter tree in the 21st century. That proverbial human bud is an avowed racist and morbid hater of Islam that assumed office as President in that country on January 20, 2017. His irritating posture and his filthy utterances alone, anywhere, have proved to be a vivid reminder of the unbridled atrocities of a onetime originator of Nazism, Adolf Hitler, who brutally terrorized the entire continent of Europe with his tyrannical ambition. And, for the first time ever, majority of Americans who voted to choose Trump as President started to express fear of uncertainty about their choice even before he assumed office.
Thus, from the beginning of his four year presidential tenure, Trump had been perceived as an unpredictable incubated egg waiting to be hatched democratically. However, the kind of chicken that would come out of that incubated egg was a matter of guess. Nevertheless, such a perception in 2017 might have been too early in the day for the eagerly agitated Americans. But now, they have all seen the reality of the political folly which they thought they ride in form of a horse.
From the foresighted perception of yours sincerely, the narration above was a virtual indicator of a future shock that the world could have been ignorantly waiting to grapple with after America’s riddance of evil.
Now, the ongoing occurrences in the United States, besides COVID-19, have come to vindicate my perception and predictions. The only aspect of that perception that is still eagerly awaiting vindication is what will eventually become of today’s sadistic Trump by the time he parts way with his vainglorious presidential history.
Factors of Influence
Like Adolf Hitler, Donald Trump must have been satanically influenced by the weird poems of two European racial poets of the 19th/20th century. One of them was William Butler (WB) Yeats of Ireland, who coined the poem entitled ‘The Second Coming’, upon which Nigeria’s Chinua Achebe’s famous book entitled ‘Things Fall Apart’ was based. Here is the poem:
“Turning and turning round in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold….”
If the above quoted stanza serves as an impetus for Trump to behave like a typical dragon dancing on the surface of an ominous brook, another poem by Rudyard Kipling may equally serve as an intoxicant that can help him to exacerbate the already dangerous situation of the modern world for which he, as a onetime American President, will be remembered. Incidentally, both Yeats and Kipling were contemporary literary men of about the same age. They were both born in 1865 but died differently within a gap of about three years apart. Below is Kipling’s own further divisive poem that strengthened the unwarranted enmity between the West and the East:
“Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet, Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat…”
History’s Role Tomorrow
Today, we know where a two times impeached American President belongs in the chapters of history. But where he will belong, tomorrow, without a Nigerian ‘Orubebe’ is left for the tomorrow’s generations of the contemporary time to determine. We pray the Almighty Allah to save us from the evil machinations of this period.
