In the wreckage of our most recent electoral disaster, with country club Republicans transformed into a cageful of surrender monkeys, and “conservative” pundits throwing them bananas, there are really only two things that need be said. But don’t expect any of these self-anointed experts to say them.
First, have you noticed that not one of them is talking about electoral fraud?
There is more than enough evidence to suggest—in the sense of shouting from the housetops—that fraud decided this election. No one wants to discuss that. If it’s true, it takes the whole nation to a place it’s never been before. The crime is so colossal that no one knows what to do about it. The persons who stole the election control the investigative, enforcement, and judiciary processes—so who you gonna call? No, no—if you’re George Will or John McCain, you don’t want to touch this with a ten-foot pole.
Think about it, though—a crime so vast, so evil, that the only thing we can do is pretend it never happened. We don’t even want to discuss it.
The other thing no one who matters wants to talk about is America’s need for deep national repentance. Imagine a Soviet Union governed by the Hellfire Club. That’s what we’re turning into, and fast.
This “president” of ours, this jumped-up community organizer, embodies all our country’s sins, writ large. If he didn’t exist, the devil would have had to invent him.
We tolerate abortion, the murder of the innocent. Every year, our Congress hands over to Planned Parenthood some half a billion dollars of our money—funding for abortions. So naturally we have a president who does rhetorical cartwheels to “celebrate” abortion. He lauds it as the means by which young women fulfill their dreams. What we tolerate, enable, and fund, he celebrates.
We wink at homosexuality: and we have a president who embraces it. He favors it. He promotes it. But don’t we do the same? Don’t millions of us, who call ourselves Christians, send our children to anti-Christian schools and colleges, where unionized teachers and cracked professors teach them that good is evil, and evil is good? Do we show the slightest concern for exactly what they’re teaching?
The virtue of thrift, or what Christians of 200 years ago called temperance, is practically extinct among us. So naturally our president and worst lady run through untold millions of dollars of public money—your money, my money—simply entertaining themselves. No extravagance is too large for them, no shiny bauble too expensive. After all, they’re not paying for it. We are.
Do we lie? We have a liar in the White House. Do we judge anyone by the color of his skin? We have a world-class bigot and race-hustler to lord it over us. Do we take the trouble to make well-informed decisions, based on immutable moral standards, as to public policy? Or are we lackadaisical, easily-distracted, and given to folly? The latter describes to a T this regime’s approach to foreign policy.
Are we thieves? Do we have a clear conscience as to theft, as long as the actual robbery is done by the government, and some of the loot lands in our laps? We have a grand thief in the White House. He and his handlers have stolen our country out from under us.

Do we covet our neighbor’s goods? Our president preaches class warfare day and night, converting the sin of envy into the virtue of redistribution—or, to give mere theft an even higher-sounding name, of “social justice.”
All of these things we do as a people, and more, are to be found in the seething cauldron of sin that is our government today—carried quite a few steps farther, of course. But they’ve only just begun to corrupt us.
We the people sin, and we get even bigger sinners for our leaders. Hey, they don’t call it “representative government” for nothing.
Our president is a mirror that shows us what is worst in us.
Repent, and sin no more. If you don’t have a Bible handy, observe our leaders and then just do the opposite.
It’s the only way to get out from being sat on by wicked and abominable rulers.
