By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share...
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.
said I, "you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows."
"Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed in the wells of silence.
the people bowed and prayed
To the neon gods they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said: "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls,
And whisper'd in the sound of silence."
-- Paul Simon, 1963
As one who was raised to love, trust and respect God’s Word, and one who values the truth, appreciates justice and hates injustice, values integrity, detests things dishonorable and who believes in Jesus Christ and accepts His deity by faith - It is difficult, I would say virtually impossible, to respect or value anymore the United States, the country of my birth.
A great evil mind-bending fog - in the midst of which Satan rages to and fro - has rolled across the land and within it a virulent spiritual disease has seized and afflicted the people and delivered them up to demonic control and made them the willing servants of that dragon of old, the god of this world.
I receive many messages from readers in which the senders ask if I think that Barack Obama is the antichrist, the man of perdition the devil’s own who will lead the world into a world-wide conflict that, absent the intervention of Jesus Christ, would bring mankind to complete extinction. If we would witness Barack Obama unite all of the nations into a one-world constellation with a common and united system of government, mercantilism, finance and an advanced system of electronic control over every last individual in an integrated new world order, and if peace would descend - under his leadership and in the front part of his tenure - upon the entirety of the world and the people and churches were to be amalgamated into a single apostate church we would know that Mr. Obama is indeed the devil’s spawn, the man of perdition.
I believe that Barack Obama is not the man of perdition. I believe that he is a Marxist, a godless secularist, and that he will continue many of the failed policies of the Bush administration, especially in regard to disastrous and ill conceived economic rescue efforts, a failure to endeavor to make society a cohesive structure of people with common interests and goals, and a continued program for open borders and undocumented and unrestricted immigration.
Mr. Obama, like George W. Bush, is a diversity freak and an iconoclast who sees no good or worth in the established traditions and historical values upon which the nation was built, he prefers a fragmented society of splintered social groups each pursuing selfish interests and with no sense of belonging to the whole of society as a part of a cohesive amalgamation of a united people with selfless goals and altruistic endeavors. Such thinking has transformed a once splendid republic into a rabble-rousing democracy.
Also like Mr. Bush, the president-elect finds the Constitution unfriendly to government control of the masses. The provisions thereof, which set forth stipulated guarantees that ensure the protection of individual liberties from encroachment by a despotic government, are viewed as being not applicable in this the new age. Rather than a society of people with immunity from an arbitrary and despotic exercise of authority by the government Mr. Obama sees it as a society in which individual rights must be suppressed to enable the government to meld all of the people into a socialist mold. The constitutional rule of law in this nation is no longer used to pursue justice, but rather as a tool to bludgeon the people into submission to the authoritarian decrees of a totalitarian government.
No Barack Obama is not the antichrist, but he is in all probability the man who will preside over the demise and complete destruction of the United States. He is the most unfortunate heathen select of the Eternal for the delivering of righteous wrath, and as such will precipitate a series of events leading to the devastation and death of a once greatly blessed nation.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with GOD. For it is written, He takes the wise in their own craftiness. 1 Corinthians 3:19
In all likelihood Barack Obama will be an instructive example to an apostate people of the tragic consequences of putting their faith in mortal men rather than in the righteous and holy all-powerful God of Creation. We are well past the point of no return; the spiritual sickness that is upon this nation and its people virtually guarantees that the nation will be delivered into the pit and that there will be no delivery from such a fate.
am possessed of a strong conviction that we are in fact fast approaching
the complete destruction of the United States and its obliteration from
the world scene. This would be a righteous judgment of an idolatrous
nation that has enabled the premeditated murder of fifty-one million
babies and pandered after the false religions of the world. I am also
of the firm belief and opinion that the demise of the United States
will precede the end-time tribulation and that it is Mr. Obama’s
lot to preside over the death and dying of the nation and its people.
Hold fast to your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, He is the only hope for individuals; there is now no hope for the nation collectively.
This nation is now caught between two totally corrupt systems. The first is a debased and rotten, to the core, capitalistic system that is grounded not upon honest labor with an expectation of reasonable personal gain, but upon deep, visceral and predatory greed. And the second is an equally rotten formative system of bolshevism, the evidence of which has now become prevailing and rife. Avarice has been raised to the level of a deeply pandemic sickness among all of our industry and financial leaders, government officials and the people collectively; it is indeed from the latter that the others have evolved. As the people go, so goes the nation.
Recently news agencies reported on a new program by the pharmaceutical industry, a soulless destroyer of lives for money, which provides an example of the putrescence that has invaded this nation. The ever-increasing rapacity of an industry that accumulates an annual obscene net profit that exceeds the total of all other industries combined points up the depth of depravity to which they, and the nation, have fallen. Seizing upon the devastating economic plight of a populace caught up in an ever-deepening recession and a rapidly dwindling labor market, the pharmaceuticals have been recruiting people, from among the nearly destitute, to act as human guinea pigs to test their pernicious chemical concoctions in exchange for monetary payments. There appears to be no bottom to the depth to which this industry will fall.
Our churches have trod the road to a dark and intense apostasy, rejecting the tenants of God’s Word and averring that the Bible is a collection of myths and misunderstood allegory. The truly spiritual are forced to dwell and worship with unrepentant heathen, as many of the churches see no difference or distinction between the two. The Gospel is preached rarely and then only as an adjunct to politically correct teachings as the church increasingly functions as a vehicle to promote sociability and communal activity and to celebrate worldly events and festivities rather than carrying out the commission of the teaching of the Gospel. Biblical doctrines have been watered down to please the world, and the Lord has surely removed His Spirit from the church and hears not the prayers offered from disobedient hearts.
It would take a Biblical Josiah to rip out and destroy the egregious idolatry that is upon this nation, and Barack Obama, despite the fact that he has been touted by millions of deluded people - and in fact by himself - as a deliverer and a savior, is but a corruptible and corrupted fallible mortal and even less disposed to Christian principles that was his predecessor, George W. Bush. Mr. Busch made a pretense of Christianity, but his public statements confirm the fact that he is a propagator of the doctrine of universalism, and an upholder of heathen gods and false religions. To be thus disposed is to deny the work of Jesus Christ upon the cross as propitiation for the sins of mankind.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living GOD Hebrews 10:31
A recent poll disclosed that Barack Obama enjoys an eighty percent approval rating among the people, approval of what! He is not even in office, and has done nothing yet other than to talk of socialist programs for an already excessively indulged people and to espouse untried and absolutely untested economic theories and conjectures. He has not addressed, or attempted to address, the spiritual sickness that is upon the people and the nation, and he has not indicated support for anything other than the same filthy and vile government supported social practices that have brought this country to a now imminent demise.
Everything that President Obama turns his hand to will come to naught. His every effort will be frustrated and the ideas and schemes of his mind will be destroyed before they are born or see the light of day. Like the innocent unborn babies that he has striven to destroy by his congressional endeavors his every initiative will abort and fail to bring life, viability or vitality to the nation. In light of the faithlessness and inconstancy of the people his election was inevitable and predestined and he will soon be up to his neck in exigent and urgent national and international circumstances that would require the application of a wisdom equal to that given to Solomon, but he will be totally bewildered, dumbfounded and befuddled. His every move will be wrong and disastrous, and he will go from veneration to contempt in the hearts and minds of the morally corrupt people that looked upon him as their savior.
The economy will continue to implode, every misguided endeavor to salvage such thus far has done nothing more than exacerbate an increasingly critical state of affairs, and this will continue to be the case under the president-elect. Nothing whatever has been done at this point other that to reward, support and uphold the criminals that brought disaster upon the nation and to encourage the people in a continuing gratification of hedonistic pursuits.
Our counterfeit savior will wonder why his gods - whatever or whoever they might be - have failed him as one natural disaster after another pummels the country during his tenure. The resources to contend with such have been frittered away by an unenlightened congress in an ignorant scramble to rescue a criminally fractured economic system by mortgaging the fiscal future of succeeding generations, their unproductive and ill-fated bailouts of the condemnable and felonious malefactors that have bankrupted the financial and industrial institutions under their control and command have left old Uncle Sam destitute and with inverted and empty pockets.

AND THE END
The economic decline will persist, the banks will fall and the markets will continue to bear on a crooked path to complete destruction. The nation, already tottering and on faltering legs like a drunken inebriate, will crumple economically and descend into a depression that will dwarf the 1929 debacle. The manifestations of this complete economic collapse will be, in descending order: deep moral depravity, famine (the people will cast their gold and silver into the streets as it will not save them or feed them), pestilence and disease, civil strife and riots, and a culminating annihilating nuclear holocaust. There will be a great crying, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth as a fallen people come to the realization that they chose the wrong messiah.
Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. Isaiah 28:17
