STEPPING TO PERDITION
By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
The past couple of weeks we have watched the economy of the nation unravel in a series of consistent and unrelenting economic catastrophes of unprecedented gravity. The fact is that the whole financial system was, prior to these events, deeply touched by a rot, decay and corruption that was consciously papered over and hidden by the clandestine and criminal machinations of corporate officers and a great number of debased career politicians who are complicit by virtue of the sale of their integrity for money. It is the sad fate of the people today to be subject to such and to have their destinies delivered into the hands of the debauched and debased quasi mobsters that rule over them.
It was interesting and enlightening to witness the extent of the power and control of these perfectly arrogant power brokers as they scrambled like a cat covering its dirt to hide the evidence of their malfeasance and to create an entirely delusive hypothesis for a gullible public, or as in recent political campaign vernacular, “to put lipstick on the pig.”
The depth of the power of these was absolutely stunning and their control of the markets was perfectly spectacular as they manipulated the securities markets to reflect a series of alternating losses and gains to coincide with their thrusts to milk the taxpayers for what amounted to a trillion dollars in bailouts and so-called economic incentives. They played like a fiddle a compliant, and mostly witting, media that by turns used their broadcast powers to either frighten the people or to encourage and coerce their support for bailouts that would preserve the fortunes of millionaires and billionaires. It was perfectly evident who owned the lion’s portion of stock market shares and who could sell them at a loss or move them around in manipulative maneuvers. It was the financial moguls that were quite willing to sacrifice millions to preserve billions. Working people do not have that kind of clout, or the money it takes to gear up a full-fledged lying panic machine in a matter of hours. Chalk up another one for the moneyed aristocracy.
I have found that the only difference between the Democrat leadership and the Republican leadership is that one of them is skinning you from the ankle up and the other from the ear down --Huey Long
If Huey thought that it was bad in his day one can imagine that his mind would boggle at the depth of the criminal corruptness of the two national parties today. Rank and file representatives in the House, who really cared about the wishes of their constituents, ignored their leadership and killed Wall Street’s golden goose bailout. The Republican members were especially cognizant of the wishes of their constituents, this despite the fact that their fearless leader, John Boehner, averred that although the bailout bill was a crap sandwich he was willing to eat it. Quite magnanimous of old John to volunteer to fall on the spear or eat the poisoned pill as a sacrifice for the elites. Too bad he has not that kind of courage when it comes to the common people.
Of course the House action was an exercise in futility as that great unaccountable Marxist body the United States Senate stepped into the breech in their inimitable socialist mode and fashioned from the skeletal remains of the House Bill a monstrosity that would challenge the reasoned and reasonable judgment of even the most sophisticated in rational thinking. In addition to the near trillion dollars of bailouts and gifts in the House Bill these cavalier distributors of the peoples’ money added hundreds of millions of dollars in pork to fatten the coffers of Hollywood producers, stockcar race owners, Caribbean rum producers, Alaskan fishermen and makers of toy wooden arrows.
The Beginning Of The End
In their Herculean effort to obfuscate the fact that they have effectively killed the American economy the reprobate politicians and the venal corporate criminals have engaged in an interminable talk of liquidity, suppression of credit to main street America, the dissipation of retirement accounts and savings (what savings?), the disappearing dream of a house for even the willingly unproductive and taxpayer funded college loans to sustain the hugely inflated costs and grossly obscene money grubbing of the institutions of higher learning.
These propagandists studiously avoid putting into simple terms the fact that they have deliberately forged an economy that is based entirely upon debt and an economy that has no intrinsic base in precious metals or anything else of worth. The liquidity they talk of is a ghost of no substance. If every corporation, financial institution, business, family unit and especially the government would be forced at a given moment in time to pay their debts from their cash flow or by a sale of assets the whole country would fall on its face and they know it.
The whole of this nation lives hand to mouth, take away the money that flows through our collective hands from Peter to Paul and the system will default and collapse. In point of fact that is exactly what is going to happen. As I write this message the House has caved in to the enormous pressures of the money-grubbers, the lap dogs of the fourth estate, and the venal politicians who have sold themselves into slavery to the finance felons to pass the monumental and rationally indiscernible pork laden bailout of the mega bucks barons of Wall Street.
There will be no recovery of the economy through natural selection and healing market adjustments, which are entirely necessary as painful as they might be. The passing of this bill will create another small credit bubble and when that bubble collapses, as it inevitably will, it will virtually assure a complete economic meltdown, the political manipulators of the administration and the congress, who have thrown the baby out with the bathwater, have now set it in stone. Crank up the printing machines boys we’re going to need a lot of those bogus bucks.
Once again through blundering greed and venal unconcern the United States has led the rest of the world into economic crisis, and the rest of the world, which is quite tired of being exposed to economic turmoil, will most certainly throw the United States to the dogs and expend every effort to build up their economies and stabilize their markets. The United States will be frozen from foreign markets and isolated and will self-destruct in a complete economic collapse that will herald the initiation of a final series of events that will funnel the nation to its ultimate demise.
No Spiritual Discernment
Those who have not God’s Spirit, through the Lord Jesus Christ, have no discernment. They are entirely separated from - and denied - a knowledge of the consequence of their actions and have no true understanding of cause and effect. This is readily apparent, as one is witness to the blundering and inimical actions of our politicians. Some of these may be brilliant of mind, but they are spiritually dull and have been delivered unto delusional beliefs and false conceptions.
It is an undeniable fact that this nation is in the hands of delusional secularists with no God-given discernment. Such are leading a pseudo Christian nation that is in total rebellion against the Eternal God and in absolute defiance of His Word. They mock Him and deny His Son, the purchaser of our salvation, and then have the audacity to invoke His blessings upon this satanic nation. Their words fall to the ground dead upon utterance. It is most certain that our sovereign God does not hear or countenance their empty pleadings as their very works identify them as being in service to the evil one.

And The End
All great powers that have ended up on the historical compost pile of dead nations have trod nearly indistinguishable paths to their demise and extinction. The United States, now imminently on the cusp of total disintegration as a world power, is entering into the final throes of expiration and classically treading the dark descent to the dank den of the tombs of failed nations, where it will lie under the debris of a once great commonwealth as its marker. There will be no lament; there will be no dirge, there will be no requiem, only a stinking, smoldering stench will testify to its former existence and its pitiful end.
