“And the rest of men who were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” –Revelation 9:20-21
It occurs to me that at least ninety percent of the people of the United States actually believe the following myths and fairy tales: That George W. Bush is a Christian, that Barack Obama is a Christian and the savior who will deliver the people and the nation from the effects of a half century and more of morally corrupt behavior, that Rick Warren is a Christian, that the economy will recover from a criminally induced collapse, that the courts actually dispense justice, that the Constitution is immutable, that the government is of the people and serves the people, that the members of congress are selfless servants who never use their position to greedily accumulate wealth and power, that the United States and its military are always righteous and never the aggressor, that the United States is still a Republic rather than a Social Democracy, that the national media reports only truth and fact and upholds the dignity of those on whom they report, that the schools educate rather than indoctrinate, that God is a big loving teddy bear who never exacts a penalty for disobedience or disciplines morally corrupt behavior and that everything in the United States is just hunky-dory since God’s blessings are upon the nation.
Recently the History Channel ran a series entitled, “Armageddon.” I was amazed and taken by the fact that so many of the participants, both secular individuals and believers in Biblical truths, were seemingly of one mind in regard to this nation and the world being on a collision course with an apocalyptic destructive end. In a segmented program that played over a period of several days a succession of scientists, secular scholars of varying types, Biblical scholars and historians wove a hair raising saga of climactic events – man-made and natural – leading to the final inevitable end of the age. Whether they realized it or not even the presentations of the secular participants supported the writings of the old-testament prophets and of John the Revelator in regard to the final days and the ultimate cataclysmic series of events that will bring a horrific end to the world as we know it. These were enlightened, intelligent and perceptive individuals and they most certainly were not representative of the deluded collective population of a nation that follows blindly after Satan, the ruler of the nations and the god of this fallen world.
We are about to transition from the lies, deceit and prevarication of one administration to the lies, deceit and prevarication of another; it will be, in fact, merely a continuation of the same betrayal of constitutional guarantees, unlawful and unrestricted immigration, insecure borders, wild frivolous spending, and government encouragement of a deeply immoral societal abjection. Babies will continue to be murdered, vice will be condoned and promoted for the revenue that it evokes, the government will persist in abrading constitutional protections, and the people’s sovereignty will be bartered away so that the nation can be melded into a one world system. George Bush, during his reign, feigned a mild disapproval of some of these condemnable odium’s, but did nothing to deter the practice thereof. No words were uttered to marshal opposition and no actions were taken to lead the nation and its people onto righteous paths. While George Bush merely condoned – by his inaction and indifference – these abominations, Barack Obama actively pursues and encourages legitimacy for, and government-instituted protection of, the same.
The media and the pundits have made much of the supposed candor and forthrightness of George W. Bush during his final news conference. My observation was that he projected a deceptive cleverness and exuded a delusive demeanor of humble servitude during the course of the televised event. If I hadn’t monitored him carefully throughout his eight-year tenure I might have believed him. But, unlike George, I am able to correctly construct the following quote: “If you fool me once it is your fault, if you fool me twice it is my fault.”
Actually Mr. Bush had a long list of failings, and they were failings that had much to do with bringing the nation to its state of impeding disintegration. His incessant fixation with so-called protectionism and the conclusion by his administration of trade agreements inimical to our best interests destroyed U.S. industry and left millions unemployed as manufacturing jobs were exported to foreign shores. His complete disregard for the security of the borders and the encouraging of the invasion of millions of illegal immigrants has very nearly destroyed the infrastructure of the nation. His imperious disdain for constitutional guarantees was responsible for a serious incursion upon the privacy rights of U.S. citizens and left the door open to legislation that disabled the elements of a constitutional protection of the people from government tyranny.
Perhaps the biggest shame upon George W. Bush and his administration was the egregiously wrongful prosecution of the two patriot border patrol agents, Ignacios Ramos and Jose Compean. Instead of being commended for their diligent action against a criminal invader, the Bush Administration’s Attorney General, and the lackeys under his command, railroaded these two patriot officers into prison. Should there be no Bush pardon for these two wronged defenders of the law prior to his leaving office he will carry this shame to his grave.
I will say this for Mr. Bush; unlike his predecessor in office there have been, in regard to his service, no illicit affairs, no perjury charges, no spots on a dress, no renting of Lincoln’s bedroom for money, no untoward pardons and no impeachment proceedings. If, in fact, such moral lapses were present he must have been infinitely slicker than “Slick Willie” as our coon dog media was never able to sniff out such perverse activities.
One of the biggest hits that he has been subjected to was “allowing” the destruction of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina. This shows just how ignorant political critics can be, one does not allow destruction from a natural weather event; the event just delivers the destruction. The fact that thousands of people were still in the city and that thousands of busses were corralled in parking lots, like cows in a pen, instead of being used to move people out of harms way certainly cannot be laid at the feet of George W. Bush. It was in fact the failings and ignorance of the people and of local and state officials that caused the grief and suffering in the aftermath of the storm.
George Bush didn’t corral those busses, he didn’t herd the people into the stadium where they were assaulted, raped, and murdered and he didn’t loot one place of business or one residence. It wasn’t Mr. Bush who ran away from the responsibility of protecting the people it was the individual police officers and public safety officials, and it is dead certain that he wasn’t a part of the group of snipers that murdered individuals and fired upon rescue helicopters.
States and local governments had better look to providing for the safety of their peoples independent of the big daddy in the white house and the self-knighted noblemen in congress because a serious time is on the horizon, and nothing in the constitution says that the federal government has the responsibility to take the hand of the various state and local officials – or their constituents – to lead them through cataclysmal natural events, nor to mollycoddle them, nor to save them from their own stupidity, nor to guarantee that they shall never be hungry, homeless, poor or destitute.
Despite the fact that our new self-proclaimed messiah, Barack Obama, will swear on Lincoln’s Bible to be the deliverer of a reliant, dependent, deluded, narcissistic and hedonistic people he will fail as miserably as George W. Busch ever did, perhaps worse. When an ignorant people ultimately discern that he possesses no divine qualities and is unable to save their jobs, their homes and their lavishly decadent lifestyles he will be as despised as was George W. Bush. He had better savor and delight in the present worship by an erratic and fickle people because it will be short lived.
I was interested to learn that Mr. Obama, like one of our recent previous presidents, venerates Abraham Lincoln, and has purportedly communed with his spirit. It is written that President Nixon paid a midnight visit to Lincoln’s tomb to summon a spiritual contact with the long dead sixteenth president so that he might seek his guidance and counsel. Now we have Barack Obama, the anointed of the people, who makes no secret of his worship of Abraham Lincoln. In fact he has disclosed that he has on prominent display in his office a portrait of Lincoln that has actually spoken to him. I can’t help but wonder if Lincoln’s spirit might have divulged the reason for his unleashing of General Sherman, the devil’s henchman, and his rabid union dogs upon a hapless south after the confederacy had already been vanquished and unable to mount any semblance of a defense against a horrifyingly rampage of rape, murder, looting and incendiaries, perchance Mr. Obama will enlighten us in this regard.
It comes as no surprise that the new president has no knowledge of God’s forbiddance of divination and necromancy. I would recommend to him chapter ten verses thirteen and fourteen of 1 Chronicles for some Godly instruction. That the new president confesses to talking with a portrait is troubling, there are only two possible explanations either he is communing with demonic spirits or he has crossed the road to schizophrenia. Maybe as he wanders down his soothsaying path he will be reminded of the fate of King Saul.
The day of rebuke is hard upon this nation; we are on the cusp of the day of reckoning for our mockery of God’s laws and well beyond the pale in regard to national sin. Every day of every week the level of decency, righteousness and morality descends to new lows. Murder, thievery, debauchery and crookedness are the norm rather than the exception, such behavior is the way of life of many on all levels of our society. Husbands, wives sons and daughters murder other members of their family, sometimes wiping out entire households in atrocious slaughters. Each day more sociopaths are introduced into our neighborhoods to prey upon innocents, our children must be guarded and kept off the streets and out of the malls to prevent their sexual molestation and murder. We have absolutely nothing going for us in the watchful eyes of the Eternal; this nation is around the bend and beyond saving.
“Blessed is he who permits the Word of God to judge him now, for the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than a twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joint and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” –Hebrews 4:12
This nation is doomed, but there is yet hope for individuals. Seek ye Jesus the Christ and confess your sins and ask for forgiveness, then forsake old ways and place yourself in His hands, His power and His might is beyond that of puny men and earthly kingdoms. He is the Alpha and the Omega and He will be with you even unto the end of the age.
