Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead











By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
February 4, 2011


This past week we were once again treated to a now sorry annual spectacle known as the state of the union address. It was, as it most always is, a pontifical exercise of blame, brag, bluster, and bombast. This year, however, a new wrinkle was added to the circus. The liberal politicians and the American media, which functions as a propaganda ministry, seized upon the opportunity to divert the responsibility for the mass shootings in Tucson, Arizona from the communist left where it properly belongs to a suppositional incivility of the political foes of the social aberrations that these political and media miscreants hold dear.

The propagandistic mania that was promoted by the Obama owned media induced a deluded public, as these agitators knew it would, to mount a demand for a new and cuddlesome politicization that would serve to obfuscate and disguise the damage that has been inflicted upon society by the mentally disordered offspring of the occultist new left, of which the Tucson shooter was a certifiable member.

All of the media hype and fabrication helped to birth a new patty-cake mentality that was infused into the confabulation that was presented as a state of the union address. The media theme was that conservative politicos should evidence a new teddybear like civility by checking their ethics and principles at the door and then sit cheek by jowl with political opponents of ideological beliefs that they believe in their heart to be socially destructive and morally depraved.

One can only marvel at the complete misapprehension that prompted those who acceded to this farcical arrangement to the point that they abandoned their supposed sincerely held values to participate in such a silly and juvenile exercise. But, there they sat like birds on a rail holding hands and being confronted by charlatanism at its best and political deportment at its worst, all in the name of civility.

The sole exhibition of wisdom and dignity of the day was that which was evidenced by the three Supreme Court justices who refused to esteem or respect the proceedings by lending their presence to such a comedic blowout.


It can be rationally argued that Obama actually profaned what used to be a respected American political tradition by his very presence.

Here is a man that everyone knows in their innermost being to be a socialist interloper of Kenyon birth and of a faked U.S. residency. The nullity of his legal status as president mocks the constitutional foundations of the nation. His oral communication consisted of a long and wearisome string of utterances of little substance and even less in the way of political acuity. The man is clueless and totally deficient in regard to wisdom, discernment, and a cognizant a grasp of world events and the culture and political disposition of foreign nations. In short he is as a boy in a man’s job.

The juvenile like textual context of his so-called speech was a compilation of the borrowed themes of past presidents, worn out and used up campaign rhetoric, and an ill disguised advocacy of the ideological doctrines of Marx and Engels that he fanatically pursues. The truly despicable aspect of his performance was the utilization of the tragic consequences of the Tucson shootings to further his political goals, that he would divert the compassion for the victims of that loathsome act to a political purpose spotlights the shallowness of his soul. In this regard he simply embraces the seemingly most important doctrine of the socialist left to never allow a crisis to go to waste even if it might be morally wrong to use the occurrences thereof to advance a cause.

The determinate thought at the conclusion of the mirthful silliness of this event was the demoralizing understanding of the collective dim-witted depths to which this society has descended, and the bleak awareness of the shudderingly incompetent witlessness of those who have ascended to ruling positions of leadership in this nation.

Sadly there seems to be no end to the cognitive deficiency that is abroad in this country in these perilous times.


Compromise – is defined as: “A middle way between two extremes”

If this is a literally correct definition, and I believe that it is, what then are we to do when the two extremes at the opposite ends of the plane are that which is moral and that which is immoral? Is it possible that a righteous compromise can be accomplished when such a compromise, by the very definition of the word, must contain the elements of an extreme that is in and of itself evil or wicked?

Compromise is as old as humanity; compromise began as a human endeavor to attempt to escape the penalty for the transgression of God’s laws and to mitigate or contravene the absoluteness of God’s word. Compromise is man’s way to lessen the seriousness of disobedience to immutable laws and dictums, or to excuse or condone such disobedience altogether. No good thing comes from compromise. Man’s accommodation of transgressions by compromise is not a defense for iniquitous acts in the eyes of God. Compromise is the devil’s invention; God who is perfect in every way will not be conciliated by the conditions of a compromise.

Compromise was introduced into the lives of men in the Garden of Eden by that serpent of old, Satan, and will remain with men until the Lord Jesus Christ brings this world to an end - which He will inevitable do - and establishes His Kingdom.


Most people have come to believe that compromise is a useful tool and that the negotiations thereof have brought about good things and useful policies. If one examines that belief closely it soon becomes apparent that there are no useful results that accrue to negotiated compromise on any level. In fact most often compromise actually breeds dissention and strife, which in turn leads to more compromise. In short compromise feeds upon itself and eats up that which is just and right in the process.


To live in a world of compromise is to live in a world without absolutes, and yet we know that the entire universe as well as the lives of men are managed, controlled, and kept within irrevocable bounds by the absolutes established by Almighty God. We violate those bounds, via compromise of any kind, at our peril.

Political negotiations (compromise) in regard to the step down from the safeguarding of the sanctity of life and from the immutable right granted by God to be defended against being murdered - as set forth in the sixth commandment - has enabled an American medical assassination machine that has claimed nearly double the number of lives of the combined number of military and civilian deaths attributable to World War II.

The killing of innocent babies has reached record heights. The lives of twenty-four percent of all unborn babies are delivered into the hands of the serial killers of the medical community. A baby is murdered every twelve seconds, and it is estimated that in this country alone there have been ninety-two million living beating hearts stilled by the bloody hands of the legal abortionists. This conspiracy to commit murder, this aiding and abetting of murder, this disconnect between the forbidden pre-meditated murder of living adults and the sanctioned pre-meditated murder of living babies has been wrought by a politically mediated compromise between those who claim the right to murder babies and those who know God’s absolute prohibition of murder. And there is more.

Now continuing…compromise on morality resulted in the condoning of, and an exponential increase in, the filthy - God condemned - practice of sodomy and promiscuous sex. For every compromise of God’s word a penalty is exacted. Aids rapidly achieved endemic proportions, first in the United States and then in the rest world. We were told that Aids was a disease of monkeys that had migrated to men. The inventiveness of the scientific community and the political apologizers who defend such appalling and execrable behavior often find fertile ground in the credulous minds of a spiritually deprived people. I’m not done.


Today as never before in our history the dishonorable who control our social destiny via their political intrigues subject the nation to a slow death by way of political compromise.

Compromise through ill-conceived trade agreements has destroyed domestic industry and extinguished millions of jobs. Compromise on sound financial practices has destroyed the housing market, seriously damaged the economy and crippled small businesses, compromise on immigration has demolished the social structure, bankrupted state and local governments, critically imperiled national security and jeopardized the safety and well-being of the people, and compromise on moral integrity has corrupted the youth, encouraged extreme vice and given license to social prurience.


In a recent article I wrote that from this time forward the people of this nation will not know a day of peace, there will be no good news, each bad day will fade into another equally bad day, and the black and ghostly apparitions of the former will blend with the grim and ghastly tidings of the new.
The Lord has departed from a people that have departed from Him and prostituted themselves before heathen gods, a people who will in the coming days loathe themselves for the evils that they have committed in all of their abominations. They will surely know that He is the Sovereign God who will carry out His word to do evil unto them that defy His word and deny His Lordship over all of creation.

As I write this piece the nation is seized by a 2,000 mile long arctic blast of an unprecedented magnitude; each season delivers devastation of Biblical proportions. Tornadoes ravage, floods inundate, conflagrations gobble up thousands of acres of trees and foliage and lumbering mudslides follow in the wake of these, hurricanes terrify the coasts, and hail, ice, and snow bring cities and towns to a standstill. Truly the day of the Lord is at hand.

One who reads these words and does not understand or relate to that which has been written can be thought to possess one or more of the following character deficiencies: deep perversion, callous indifference, abysmal illiteracy, or appalling ignorance.

Believers in God’s word know that ignorance of a secular kind is directly attributable to a lack of spiritual discernment.

Solomon gives a litany of dangers that await the man who lacks Spiritual discernment:

“To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life. That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.” [Proverbs 2:12-22]

A modern translation:

"Wicked and perverse men are scattered like land mines across the paths of our lives. Without discernment we will soon be following them into the dark of destruction. The adulteress, every man’s worse nightmare, will seduce those who cannot see past her beauty and promises. Behind her attraction lies the steps that descend to hell. No one who goes to her returns, but how can anyone know this apart from God Himself telling us." [Proverbs 2:12-22]
