Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead












By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.

He is a pathetic and pitiful sight to behold is this old man. His countenance is jaundiced, yellowed by the diseases of the ages that have wracked his bony skeletal frame. Host to pestilential parasitic organisms - the gasses of which gurgle through disintegrating decomposing innards and exude through yellow-orange rotted teeth with the fetid effluvia of carrion - this old man is an offense to all by his very presence. Lesions and crustaceous afflictions spot his body in an ugly disfiguring diffusion and cadaverous eyes peer from deep within their sunken sockets with a diminished and dying light. He is a sight to behold is this old man, an obscene, lamentable, distressful and pitiful picture that etches itself upon the conscious and submerges pity in a shuddering wave of repulsive reflex. Who is this old man?

This old man is metaphorically speaking; the United States inclusive of its people its leaders and its social, commercial and governmental institutions, a once mighty virile and morally justified Republic this nation is now near the end of its days and no more than a senile putrid pestilent walking corpse.

Today I received an email from one who expressed outrage over the fact that some, including this writer, have stated that this is a sick nation. The lady expressed her thoughts thusly, “I am entirely sick and tired of those who say that ours is a sick nation.” I am constantly amazed at the ignorance, nay the absolute lack of ability of the people in this country to discern the nature of the circumstances that are upon them, to profit from experience or to comprehend reality. It would seem that they exist with their head continually in the sand and with only their rear end exposed to the world. They have absolutely no comprehension of the prophetic events that are upon them, in other words they think with the wrong end of their anatomy.

This nation is progressing steadily and relentlessly through a seamless progression of presaging occurrences that are being stepped out by supernatural intervention. To think or counsel that men control their own destiny or that they can rely on their own strength and wisdom is analogous to saying that a dog should control his master. Apart from the GOD of creation men have no wisdom and their strength is puny indeed, the fact is the wisdom of men is spiritually assigned by the Eternal and those who reject Him as their creator and master have no wisdom, no discernment and no future.

This is the state of being in this nation today and we can thank our poor-spirited denominational churches in great part for that state of being, if the pastors and leaders of these would preach the Gospel and the unadulterated and convicting Word of Almighty GOD instead of the silly sentimental and politically correct worldly slop that is delivered from the pulpits in a seeming preponderance of American churches today this nation wouldn’t be in its present sorry state.

The United States, a once stalwart sound just and socially healthy Republic, has been transformed into a discredited systemically perverse socially filthy and hedonistically inclined socialistic democracy, the people of which are unable to discern good from evil or holy from profane, neither can they differentiate between that which is divinely given and that which emanates from the occult kingdom of the prince of darkness.


There was a time when I had great admiration and regard for the fact that Americans seemed to stand out in the world for their shrewd and calculating thinking ability. But, all of that is in the past and Americans are now – in my estimation – collectively a perverse deceived and ignorant people. Since they are shallow of thought, poorly educated, seriously deprived of historical knowledge, have little in the way of sound moral values and - most importantly - have no spiritual discernment they are receptive to lies and disposed to utter lies. In fact if the way they gobble up with relish the lies uttered in our political campaigns is any indication, they love lies and esteem them above truths.

Though the boldest and most prolific liars in our society are the politicians we have found, through the course of the current economic collapse, that no sector of society is devoid of liars. The unions, corporate entities and the financial institutions abound with liars. The lies of these are just more subtle and more often in the form of prevarication and misrepresentation. The pharmaceuticals are an outstanding example; they are absolutely notorious in this regard. Their advertisements are, without exception, based on lies and deceit and the people eat it up with a spoon. They have raised deceit and prevarication to an art form with their fake doctors, paid actors, and perverse Hollywood shills. How these people can live with their conscience is beyond me, they have most certainly – by the deceptive hawking of their pernicious chemical concoctions - condemned hundreds of thousands of people to misery and death and all of this to obtain the sole object of their worship, money.

But, without a doubt the champions of all liars are the politicians. I suspect that sprinkled among this great cadre of political liars and cheats are some honest individuals, unfortunately they are overshadowed by the cheats and must share the spotlight with their venal comrades. A clean conscience must be their reward and their salvation in the world of politics. Unfortunately these would seem to be far in the minority since for the most part our politician’s utter lies boldly continually and unremorsefully without the slightest reservation. It is not without good reason that the Bible states that all liars shall have their part in the lake, which burns with fire and brimstone.

It is has been perfectly fascinating to observe the ongoing step-by-step destruction of this nation, to be sure it is frightening distressing and lamentable, but unarguably fascinating. The Clinton and Bush administrations enabled the advance elements of a satanic blueprint for the dismantling of the Republic and the institution of a godless democratic socialist system of despotic governance that renders the people irrelevant and selectively dispensable. These administrations in fact carried the water that has enabled Barack Obama to be the final arbiter of our fate. If this nation survives the first term of Obama it will be a monumental surprise and if there should be a second term for him it will be a major miracle.

Both the Bush and Clinton regimes enveloped a great collection of deviant personages and Obama has melded many of these with his own appointments of crooks, liars, and tax cheats to cast a malefic assemblage to assist him with his transforming of the United States into a Marxist communist regime. The bad news that I have for Mr. Obama is that it is highly unlikely that he will survive the coming holocaust that he is being demonically led to provoke.

Morally deficient and socially deviant ultra liberal Democrats are now in charge of this nation and they have a kindred spirit in Barack Obama. These are like cockroaches; they do their dirty work under the cover of darkness and in the backrooms via secret meetings. Their values are perverted and their works are inimical to that which is good and just. It is this unholy union, along with the debasement of the people, that will put the finishing touches of destruction upon this nation.


The Republicans who are now righteously indignant in regard to the disastrous policies of these political miscreants have short memories. They seem to have forgotten that they acquiesced to George Bush’s trashing of constitutional liberties and guarantees. And they also seem to have forgotten that it was Republicans who cowardly supported and enabled the programs and legislation of minority ultra liberal Democrats that have inflicted such great social and fiscal damage upon the nation, its people and its institutions. For eight long years they controlled congress and for eight long years they genuflected to soulless and socially depraved Democrats and all but rubber-stamped the pernicious and disastrous initiatives that destroyed our social standards of morality or justice. As I have so often stated our politicians - both Republican and Democrat - are a product of the people. If this were not so they would not have been elected to office and kept in office, they merely reflect the collective values of the people who put them into office.


The young people of this nation have been socially acclimated to violence. Delivered to a rudderless course in life by an abandonment by parents and religious leaders, corrupted by godless socialist oriented schools and guaranteed rights that they do not possess by government bureaucrats and social do-gooders they do what comes naturally from a sinful nature, they sin and they sin boldly and to a severe and serious degree. Nothing in their undeveloped conscience limits their natural instinct to do uncompassionate and selfish acts. As juveniles they are most often held harmless by a very stupid liberal and corrupt system of justice and consequently they learn that there is no upshot for wrongful criminal behavior.

To further the training of these potentially future criminals; they are mentored in depraved and gratuitous violence by television producers, the movie industry, the producers of pornography and by the soulless designers and producers of viciously demented video games and computer software. Each day our society turns out the makings of more future adult criminals.

We are progressively becoming a people of sociopathic leanings. Increasingly, in fact daily, we read of the meandering violence of conscienceless, merciless, and sadistic homicidal predators. Dear reader if you would have a way to number these in our society today you would be frightened beyond imagination. Potential mass murderers, serial killers and criminally deviant personalities are continually on the prowl in every section of this country. One is subject to the predations of these everywhere, in the wilderness, in the rural areas, and in the suburbs and the cities.

Every day of every week we receive the news of mass murders, senseless and unfathomable family slaughters and of the unfortunate and pitiable victims of serial killers. As I write this column the newscasts report another mass killing, a homicidal gunman rampaged through a senior care center killing eight elderly residents and a nurse. Before that could be assimilated it was followed by a report of a murder by a male family member who stabbed an older sister critically and then cut the head off of another of his sisters who was, on that day, celebrating her fifth birthday.

These conscienceless killers have raged through restaurants, malls and shopping centers, fast-food establishments, places of employment, churches, schools, and universities and colleges. These merciless slayers are not psychotic or victims of mental disease they are psychopaths who kill with pre-meditation and with intent. They have no more feeling or compassion for their victims than they do for a sack of garbage, they are the finished product of an egregiously corrupt society and they are as mentally healthy as their counterparts of Hitler’s Third Reich who cold-bloodedly and inhumanly slaughtered millions of innocent human beings.


And I will bring distress on men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land. --Zephaniah 1:17-18

I have previously written that we have come to a point of no return, and I have seen nothing, nor do I contemplate anything in the future, to alter that belief. Some tell me that we are living under a new covenant and that Old Testament scripture is of no consequence and has no meaning for our age. Before anyone takes heart from this contention they would do well to recall the revelation to John, by our LORD Jesus Christ, of the apocalypse. My Bible tells me that GOD is changeless and that He is the same past present and future. We know from scripture that many nations of old testament days came to a point in time when GOD turned His back to them and delivered them unto complete destruction and captivity.

"Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, He hath bid his guests" --Zephaniah 1:7

The time has come when prayer for this nation will not help, GOD rejects it. Now is the time for total judgment. Keep the faith; the reward for those who have been redeemed by the blood of Christ comes on the other side of this.
