Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead












By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.

"But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober." -1 Thessalonians 5:1-5

Today I watched on TV a gaggle of wretched, greedy, grasping and predatory liberal congress people, led by that prehensile queen of the unenlightened and ignorant Nancy Pelosi, as they inveighed, cried, bawled, and begged that an automatic salary increase of ninety thousand dollars for elected congress people be allowed to go into effect. The fact that these abjectly immoral people have been elected to office in the first place points up the desperately pitiful mentality of the electorate who put them into positions of leadership over a nation of three hundred million people.

That these mental midgets would even consider accepting an additional ninety thousand dollars annually to supplement their already one point seven million dollar yearly gouge of working American taxpayers testifies to their venal nature and corruptness of mind. It is unbelievable that these cuckoos would be so bold to even contemplate such a measure after they have collectively helped to deliver their constituents into a deepening recession and brought them to the doorstep of an imminent collapse. Such chutzpah just boggles the mind of real and thinking people.

This week we witnessed the coming together of the beginnings of a massive propaganda campaign by the president and his court jesters, these and the so called political pundits of the national media have mounted a blitz that is being contrived to convince the great unwashed that the economy is recovering nicely and that the current atrociously bad economic fall is just a transient anomaly and a blip on the screen of an otherwise sound and indestructible economy. A mighty effort is being made by these inwardly panicked mortals to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. They prattle on and on about cycles, investment trends, market gains, a renewed consumer confidence and how the recession will be over in a year with not an ounce of real discernment about the actual future that awaits them. They are spiritually ignorant and satanically deceived.

In reality they are looking to the American middle-class, that they have shafted with their avarice and corruptness, to pull their irons out of the fire. Since the entire system that they have created is predicated upon debt it is, they believe, entirely necessary that people are enticed back into reckless spending and an accumulation of personal debt. The turn of the people to thrift, debt reduction, and saving that was initiated by the economic plummet must be stopped if the elites are to maintain control, recover their losses and resume their crooked ways, and if the politicians - ah, yes the lying politicians - are to continue to access the largess of, and backhanded payoffs from, corporate crooks to sustain a lifetime tenure in the greatest condemnable political collective on earth - the American congress.

Bernie Madoff was sentenced to one hundred fifty years in prison for doing what congress and the corporate elites have been doing for decades, running a ponzi scheme that has bilked millions of people out of their legitimately earned dollars. The only difference is that those who invested their monies with Bernie Madoff did so voluntarily and out of personal greed while the government and corporate malefactors force the people’s participation in their ponzi schemes by delivering them to debt and then extracting their money through taxes and usury. It is the greatest scam ever devised, a way to steal the fruits of the labor of a people and make them thankful for the thievery by giving back a pitiful portion of the monies stolen in entitlements, government handouts and so called credit rewards. Heck, Bernie Madoff had to be surreptitious with his thievery while our government and corporate thieves fleece their victims boldly and with complete immunity.

Every little bounce in the markets will be touted by the Mephistophelean agents who control this nation as a sign of recovery and a return to old days. I have news for these; the markets are not a prognosticator of our fate. Our fate has already been decided and not by fallible and purchasable men, our fate is entirely in the hands of Almighty God as we are about to find out.


At no time in history has a new president inflicted more long-term damage in such a short space of time than has Barack Obama. With monumental arrogance this perfectly formed narcissist has altered long time traditional relationships, done a cozy up to our known enemies and alienated longstanding friendly nations. His kissy-face diplomacy with belligerent nations and his self-important, rude, and non-indulgent treatment of historical allies, such as Great Britain, has set the stage for international turmoil from which the United States will emerge both friendless and vulnerable to predator nations with nuclear capabilities.


Our new leader - and I use the term leader lightly - and his dim party comrades in the congress have obligated American taxpayers to nearly nine trillion dollars of debt. Thus far these geniuses have dumped three trillion dollars on the criminal banks and conglomerates that precipitated the economic fall in the first place. These have thumbed their noses at the taxpayers from whom these monies came and used the monies to capitalize new ventures, acquire subsidiaries, line the pockets of their executives with billions in bonuses and gifts, and to finance lavishly extravagant parties at posh resorts.

It has been a less than auspicious start for a greenhorn president, but one cannot deny that he has kept the faith with his supporters of the communist left with his appointments and policies, he has been most kind and accommodating to rabid gun-banners, environmental kooks, ethnocentric loonies, and meddling social manipulators. Indeed our new president has proven that he is an appeaser and a toady both internationally and domestically.

They that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same -Job 4:8

In the face of a total economic collapse and a concomitant series of cataclysmic events the people of this nation have shown no sign of repentance or shame. They continue with their frantic hedonistic pursuits. If it were possible I would expect that they would in the midst of riots, violence, starvation and fire and brimstone continue to spend their last worthless dime on sports events, concerts, entertainment and gambling, pornography and all that is inimical to the salvation of their soul. They must be a real comfort to their father the devil.


The American people ought to be ashamed of the fact that they have become so spiritually deprived and so mentally corrupt as to allow their hearts and minds to be seized and controlled by agents of the dark kingdom. For a half-century and more they have been piped down a crooked road, strewn with lasciviousness and avarice, to moral bankruptcy.

I have been critical, severely so, of the political leaders, it would be hypocritical to lay all of the blame at the feet of these as they merely reflect the will of the people. If this were not so the people would not have put them into office and kept them in office The people desire vice, more material wealth than they need or deserve and loose moral codes, and this is what their elected representatives have delivered. When those who are spiritually wise and conversant with God’s Word endeavor for a return to morality and common sense laws they are simply mocked and suppressed by the corrupt majority through their equally corrupt leaders.


This week there has been a slight rebound in the markets. This small bump has been attributed to the propaganda and the delusive pronouncements of the president and the chairman of the Federal Reserve, a satanically controlled institution that is desperately and clandestinely propping up terminally ill banks with fiat money. Relieve yourself of the thought that the Fed cannot manipulate the markets, they can and they do.

All of the efforts by the congress and the Federal Reserve to restore the economy through massive spending and the surreptitious printing of fiat money are doomed to failure. Their campaigns are analogous to stopping a breach in the Hoover Dam with a cork sooner or later, in this case sooner can be expected, the sheer weight of the volume behind the fracture will prevail and the entire system will collapse and destruct. But, dear people think not that this is the end.

This complete collapse of the economy will set into motion a series of cataclysmal events. Industry will grind to a halt, fifty percent or more of the people will abruptly be plunged into unemployment, food production will all but terminate and massive riots will set the cities afire. These riots will lead to racial warfare; violence will proliferate even into the rural areas by roving gangs of outlaws bent on murder, mayhem and destruction. The government will make futile attempts to put down the insurrection and will fail.

The nation will fracture into hostile camps and government control will dissipate. When internal conditions have completely destroyed any ability of defense hoards of hostiles will pour across the southern border and nuclear-tipped missiles will conflagrate what is left of the cities.


What I have just outlined is the consequence of arrogant pride, spiritual depravity and disobedience to Almighty God. All great commonwealths that have trod such a path have ended up in the historical graveyard of failed nations and the United States despite a belief by many to the contrary will not escape a similar fate. God’s Word warns us of the consequence of spiritual disobedience and we have the examples of the fate of the nations that previously traveled that road to illumine His Word. We know that ignorance of the laws of men does not excuse violations of those laws; neither does ignorance of God’s laws constitute a defense for disobedience to the laws that He has set forth for our instruction. We will either confess our sins in abject humility and repentance and submit to His correction or we will perish.

The trek we make through this life is but a short brutish experience, beyond this life stretches eternity. How we spend that eternity depends upon the decisions that we make during our carnal sojourn. There is but one key that fits the gate to the everlasting life beyond and Jesus Christ is that key. He is the way the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except by Him.

"For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do." -1 Thessalonians 5: 6-11
