I’ve been fascinated by all the articles coming out after the American election claiming that Trump’s election is a major setback for globalism. Here are some of the statements being made:
Far from being unique, he is simply the loudest, the most outrageous and now the most powerful standard-bearer for a wave of nationalism that is utterly transforming the politics of the Western world and the balance of power for a generation to come.
JERUSALEM — Donald J. Trump’s stunning election victory on Tuesday night rippled way beyond the nation’s boundaries, upending an international order that prevailed for decades and raising profound questions about America’s place in the world.
For the first time since before World War II, Americans chose a president who promised to reverse the internationalism practiced by predecessors of both parties and to build walls both physical and metaphorical.
They awakened the sleeping giant, the great middle class of America. On this historic night, the average citizens of the United States roared and joined Brexit in voting against globalism and in favor of nationalism.
Some people are comparing the Brexit vote and even Donald Trump to the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence. There are clear similarities.
The Brexit vote was about divorcing Britain from the overbearing socialist bureaucrats in Brussels. Trump’s presidential campaign was about destroying the overbearing globalist elitists in Washington – regardless of their party affiliation.
The self-governing citizens of the United States have decided that they have had enough of their elite, globalist, one-world leadership and have thrown them out.
“It is all part of the same thing,” Coulter said about the issues Trump won on: Jobs, economy, immigration, and trade.
“That is globalism vs. nationality.”

So in one year, we’ve had Brexit (hopefully still in progress) and now a possible Amerexit from the global order. We see a slow turning against the attempt to create a one world totalitarian government. This is consistent with a historicist interpretation of Revelation 16 and 17, where the globalists eventually turn on the papacy and destroy it after becoming disillusioned with its agenda. One can only hope this is the beginning of the end for the papacy and the start of the liberation of the nations.
It is interesting to me that some interpreters see the situation coming to a head in 2017:
“The downfall of the Papacy, according to Fleming, is going on; the Mohammedan Antichrist will follow, and about A.D. 2000 (Jewish reckoning, about 2017 on the Julian calendar–RB), the millennial epoch will begin. ” Source: Puritan Downloads
Time will tell if that is the case (at least one writer thinks it isn’t). If so, we are in for an interesting ride over the next few months.
