Mark Meadows, Former White House Chief of Staff to President Donald J. Trump and author of The Chief’s Chief.
When Mark Meadows took control of the Trump White House in March of 2020, the nation was in turmoil. A deadly coronavirus had arrived from Wuhan, China, and brought the rhythm of daily life under President Trump—defined by a soaring stock market, sinking unemployment rates, and a renewed sense of pride in being an American—to a grinding halt. Our streets were empty. Our hospitals were full.
Millions of Americans were scared, lonely, and unemployed, all while the global economy teetered on the edge of collapse. One wrong move by President Trump and his team could have ushered in years, even decades, of irreparable harm.
In this frank, candid account of his ten months in the White House, Mark Meadows—known simply as “The Chief” around the West Wing—tells the harrowing story of how he and a close team of loyal advisors helped President Trump bring the country back from the brink of catastrophe. In a style that is accessible, suspenseful, and often humorous, Meadows pulls back the curtain on the West Wing as it was run by President Trump, fighting the false narrative of the Fake News with the hard, unvarnished truth.
This is the definitive book about the final year of President Trump’s first term, told by the only man (other than President Trump himself) who was there for every minute of it.
And I’m still one to say that this is a biological weapon being used by China and Fauci both together. I believe it hadn’t been completely developed and finished yet, but whether it was released on purpose or not, I have no idea. But once it was, yes, they weaponized it fully.
Over the last year and a half, this country has gone from an incredible economy with an incredibly successful President to that of a living hell. Our country has been destroyed, and the tool the left has used is covid.
Andy asked John what has surprised him the most over the last year and a half.
John’s response, “How willing, especially young people, have been to just give it all up if you would. I mean, they are so worried about being safe. They’re willing to lock themselves in a closet and hand the government the key almost to that extent and say, Please protect me. … I’m shocked at how young people, especially young families, even have been so willing to give up their freedom.”
Andy replied, “Okay, let me jump in on that because we are seeing with young people who are at no risk, virtually no risk unless you are immune deficient. Okay, young people are at no risk whatsoever. They’re the first to wear masks. They are the first to turn people in. They are the first to complain. They’re the first [ to get] vaccinations. Whatever they can do. As you said, they’re complete sheep. So here’s my question, “Have you ever seen a more vibrant example of the absolute control that education and entertainment have over our kids?”
John, “No, this is it. You are literally programming. You are literally programming tens of millions of safe people to act in terror.
Andy, “And you know me. I was brought up by the academic left. I know how they control young people. I know how they do it. I even have been shocked.”
The Human Spirit Intertwined with Politics and Economics
A summary of John and Andy’s conversation on 5/21/21 hour 3
The Democrats are in the business of taking away the human spirit. The spirit that makes us want to be better, to do better, to achieve a goal, and make something out of ourselves. The Democrats want people to be needy. Not needed. If you are needed, then you have a purpose. This is exact math. The more you are needed in life, the higher feeling of purpose you have, the needier you are in life, you have a lower sense of purpose. One political party (Republicans) wants you as an individual to feel more purpose. The other (Democrats) desperately wants you to feel less purpose so that THEY feel more needed.
The top echelon of the Democratic party wants you to feel needy so that they feel needed. Contrary to a really good boss, they want their employees to feel needed, not needy. A really good boss wants their employees to be thinking, how can I make something better of myself? How can I do more, be more, achieve more for the business and for myself? And bad bosses Don’t give a damn about the self-worth of their employees. “Can anybody on any rung move themselves up, even if they’re not the owner of the said business?” Yes, you can. It’s called tenacity. It comes down to one thing. You have to outwork the guy next to you. That’s the only thing it takes to achieve the next rung. Outwork the guy or the gal next to you. And the Job comes first.
Never ever believe that people don’t have the ability to raise themselves up out of whatever situation they’re in. Because there are countless examples not only in this country but worldwide. Even in some of the most desolate of countries where these individuals with enough tenacity can raise themselves up. And most of the people that live in other countries that believe in the human spirit and working and achieving want to come here. Why? Because they know it’s the best opportunity for them to take what they do with their tenacity and achieve something in America. At least for now.
The only problem is the more we grow government here, the less opportunity there is. So never believe that people can’t lift themselves up. Because when you believe that they can’t what that really tells me is you have no faith in people at all. When people say things like that they are showing their hate for their fellow man because what you’re really saying is, “You’re too stupid to get yourself up off the bottom rung. I have to help you do it because you can’t do it yourself.”
My Thoughts: At the beginning of this segment, John and Andy spoke about how the Leftists hate God. Of course, they do. Saint Iranaeus was quoted as saying, “There is no greater glory to God than man being fully alive.” And if each individual is living up to the fullest of their abilities and God-given potential, God is being glorified. Destroy the Creator by destroying His creation.
Endnote: For those of you offended by the Saint Iranaeus quote from 320AD that uses the word “man,” it means humankind.
