THAT WHICH ONCE WAS, IS NO MORE
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them.” -- George Washington
Disaster glowers menacingly on the horizon of this formerly worthy – and now Godless - Republic with ominous portent. The lights of joy and brightness that formally danced in the hearts of children and illumined the lives of men and women have slipped from the social landscape and faded into the murky depths of darkness and oppression that has been wrought by purchasable men who do the work of demonic masters. Infernal apparitional buzzards roost among the oddments of our decaying cities and an effluvial putrescent presence of spiritual sickness has settled like a gaseous plague upon every corner of the land.
COGNITIVELY DEFICIENT AND MORALLY DEPRIVED
When this nation was delivered totally into the hands of godless progressives via the election of that Marxist zealot Barack Obama and an ideological like-minded majority in both houses of Congress the fundamental activating principles of the nation were forever altered. Under the guidance and dominance of a powerful and unholy trio - Obama, Pelosi, and Reid - the nation was delivered unto complete moral and spiritual bankruptcy. It is telling that this trio is of three of the most spiritually and morally bankrupt cities of America, Chicago, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. A general lack of mental acuity and the inability of the collective majority of the American people to understand and discriminate between good and bad and right and wrong led to the election of a controlling number of political degenerates that has immersed the country into the corruptness of gangsterism, the unbridled immorality of sodomy and infanticide, and into sin sick covetousness and grasping greed.
The Lord has discerned the sins of this nation, and they are legion.
A FAILURE TO EDUCATE
A colossal ignorance has descended upon a collective majority of the people in the United States. In a relatively short space of time our people have moved to the bottom rung of the intelligence ladder. Presumably one must have been raised and educated outside of recent times to be able to recognize that which is glaringly evident in regard to this steep decline in the mental keenness of a sizeable segment of American society. This degeneration of reason and understanding is currently on-going and accelerates with each passing day. It is a serious and deliberately generated impairment that enables a dominance of, and control over, the masses by the criminal political consortium that has seized the reins of our government.
Recently I watched televised interviews of a number of teen-age high school students. The students were asked to name their favorite historical figure and to state the reason for their admiration of such. The responses were childishly naïve for students who had nearly completed their secondary education. All were egregiously deficient in their grasp of the continuum of events leading from the past to the present, and in the main they were largely inarticulate in relating their beliefs and opinions.
One young lady identified her favorite historical figure thusly, “I like Obama. He owns the whole United States. He is my hero. ” There you have it the finished product of the American Public Education System.
This failed by the system young lady helps us to better relate to those who voted for Obama because they just knew that he would provide them with a free ride via a presidential decreed delivery or reprieve from their rent obligations and credit card indebtednesses.
NO WISDOM AMONG THE LEARNED
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” 1 John 2:22
I have observed that those who are spiritually blighted are also mentally blunted. No matter how well educated they are and no matter how many degrees are appended to their name if they have no belief in, or commitment to, Jesus Christ as the God of all humanity true discernment absolutely escapes them. It is essentially impossible for those of purely secular comprehension and an agnostical bent to understand that which is imparted by God’s Spirit.
One can readily discern such spiritual ignorance by listening to the inane and completely unsustainable atheistic conjecture of these self-perceived geniuses in support of an argument for the evolution of the human species. The wisdom of such is foolishness in the sight of the Eternal God who gives them breath. To deny the works of the Father and the Son seals their fate. In God’s eyes they are antichrists and deserving of the destiny that awaits them.
LEADS THE NATION
We have already observed the denseness and slow-wittedness that has infiltrated the highest echelons of government and which permeates the very foundations of our society. This spiritual decadence and concomitant ignorance has moved the nation to the leading edge of disastrous events. Wisdom among the people and our government is a scarce commodity and the lack of it will soon push the nation beyond the precipice and into the fires of destruction.
Nowhere is this dim-wittedness more pronounced than among the ranks of those in government, and appending institutions such as the Federal Reserve, which are entirely responsible for the current economic crisis. It is a crises long in the making and soon - very soon - a crisis that will come to full realization with a complete economic collapse.
As I write this article our counterfeit economic guru - Ben Bernanke - is making the case, during his rounds of the Sunday talk shows, that a measured economic recovery is ongoing and that everything with our economy is going to eventually be just hunky dory, this despite the fact that a few days prior to his appearance an upward trend in unemployment to a firm 9.8 percent was noted. And dear reader if you believe that this 9.8 figure is the full extent of unemployment in this nation I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I will sell to you. That three-stooge triad - Bernanke, Obama, and Geithner - are so adept at the deceitful crunching of numbers that I would hire them to do my taxes, but don’t want to have to go to prison for the lying put forth on the return.
SHAKING IT OUT
Anyone with an ounce of sense - this excludes the national media and government propagandists - knows that this nation is reeling about the economic ring in stupefaction undefended and vulnerable to the knockout punch. The Federal Reserve, under direction of the aforementioned Bernanke, is trying unsuccessfully to kick-start a completely stalled economy by means of driving the dollar to new lows by cranking the printing presses to full in the production of fiat money. This devaluation of the dollar - thinks Bernanke, et al - will make it easier for the consumers and investors of foreign nations to buy more of our goods and thereby contribute to an increase in exports. All of which translates - they think - into increased domestic manufacturing and more jobs.
Good show if one could pull it off, but it appears that Mr. Bernanke and Mr. Geithner, and Mr. Obama have not reckoned with the fact that foreign governments are not entirely stupid, and when agitated thusly are prone to retaliate with currency devaluations of their own. It is a currency war in the making that we are seeing, a war that will in fact bring to complete nullity all of this supposed brilliance on the part of the FED and a complicit U.S. government.
Instead of more foreign investment we will see less, jobs will continue to dissipate, our national debt will continue to soar and since we will be unable to further sustain the debt by borrowing from foreign sources taxes will also soar, the dollars worthlessness will translate into raging inflation, eventually the markets will collapse and the current incipient depression will develop fully. Our economic chicanery will have destabilized international commerce completely as retaliatory economic bombs are exchanged, and we will dear reader find ourselves on the bottom of the international economic heap.
Our people have not the moral character and endurance these days to weather a depression of the likes of the great depression of the thirties. Riots of an unprecedented nature will develop, violence will proliferate and race wars will rage, famine will persist and disease will decimate. And we will have come to an execrable end of a great experiment.
WHO IS IN CHARGE?
God is in charge! Our moral decadence has most certainly not escaped the attention of an all powerful, all-knowing, and all-seeing God, a God with the uninhibited ability to in an instant extinguish our existence with fire and scatter our ashes to the wind. There comes a time when God’s great patience is exhausted, and this time may come without warning as it did in the case of Sodom and Gomorrah. And then again He may mercifully – so as to give one last chance – bring about His judgment by incremental measures. Take heed that our fate might be the latter rather than the former.
Most certainly these words will find their way to those who will scoff and make light of their significance. In the words of the executioner to the condemned, may God have mercy upon the soul of these.

“Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” Revelation 18:21-23
