I don’t know how much I can write today. I’ve just spent a morning shoveling several tons of Global Warming off my car.
If you can hop aboard your private jet any old time and zoom off to Davos, Switzerland, ride a limo to your luxury hotel, and spend an afternoon sipping expensive booze with your global elite buddies, you can afford to believe in Global Warming—also known as Climate Change, when it snows. You certainly aren’t going to be tied up for a whole morning shoveling snow.
Now I don’t know about illegal aliens doing work that Americans won’t do; but I do know that Al-Jazeera, the Arabic news network, is doing work that the American media won’t do.
Recently some Egyptian commentators on Al-Jazeera shared their insights into our beloved American president, Barack Obama. They were especially intrigued by the president’s insistence that Climate Change/Global Warming—an imaginary problem, and hence unsolvable—is the most critical security threat facing our country today.
They made some insightful comments. “Is he crazy?” wondered one of them. “He’s on drugs,” suggested another. One called him “an affirmative action president.” Another called him “a man who ignores the evidence of his own eyes.” They didn’t even like his physique, which drives some of our home-grown liberal commentators ga-ga.
They seemed to think that Islamic terrorism, as exemplified by ISIS et al, is a rather more serious threat. But they’re wrong.
The most serious threat facing the civilized world today is the leaders of the civilized world, as exemplified by our perpetually-smirking president himself.
Aside from importing masses of violent, lawless Muslims into the countries of Western Europe just in time to turn New Year’s Eve in Germany into Public Rape Nite, our leaders are still piling their chips on Global Warming as their best bet to do away with nations and replace them with a global government. It’s a time-honored approach: create a horrendous problem, such as national borders dissolving away and societal chaos breaking out, and then put themselves forward as the only geniuses who can possibly solve it. The Mafia have done this for a hundred years.
See, all that chaos, they say, is not the result of crazy public policies cynically employed, but merely the inevitable result of Climate Change. Just ask any of ‘em.
And the way you solve it, and restore order, is to get rid of nations and impose a global government run by Obama and his friends, take control of every aspect of human life, tax everybody out the wazoo, and there you are—no more Global Warming! And no more racism, war, hate, lust, income inequality, or any other deadly sin that you can think of. Utopia at last!
When nations abandon God, they turn to idols. They worship the work of men’s hands—government agencies, government-funded science, welfare checks, government-funded schools and universities. These have all the answers. Hey, would such smart people lie to you?
It’s too bad we have to turn to Al-Jazeera for straight talk about our own country’s overlords, but it’s better than having no one to turn to at all.
We have an opportunity this year to turn a big bunch of these leaders out of office, and I pray we make the most of it. Of course they’ll all stick around as lobbyists, and continue to do as much damage as they can. But there is simply no excuse for allowing any of them to stay in office.
But any election is only one shovelful of snow scraped off the buried car.
Even as He sends the snow, God has raised up these ungodly rulers: they are His chastisement for our sins.
He will not bring back the sun and melt the snow away, He will not remove these wicked despots, these grinning hypocrites and flim-flam artists, until we turn back to Him with all our hearts.
Are we ready, yet, to do that?
