THESE ARE OUR LEADERS
Did you note the gleeful hilarity with which our Secretary of State greeted the news of the grim and ignominious assassination of Libyan leader Moammer Gadhafi at the hands of an American backed rabble of depraved and perverted insurgents of infinitely less worth and morality than their victim. Hillary, that eternal progressive and everlastingly execrable embodiment of the disease of classless collectivism, exhibited the malevolent mentality that is the very heart of the liberal progressive ideology. These single-minded social anarchists continually inveigh against the God-given gift of individualism and free-will and endeavor to reduce mankind to an amorphous, subordinate and malleable aggregate of dependent droids. Dear reader liberalism or progressivism is a spiritual disease as deadly and negative as the deadly pathologies of a physical kind.
But, I digress - back to Hillary that black widow of the demonization euphemistically referred to as the Obama Administration; that this so-called lady would let go of any semblance of dignity and professional bearing to reveal an entirely savage and barbarous personal character in a televised public interview was astounding. If it had not been too inelegant I actually believe that she would have liked to have danced on a table in exultation, I thank the stars that we were saved from that!...As it was she remained seated, but let go with a perfectly cold-hearted and grisly narration of the bloody assassination during which her great exhilaration - seemingly born of a sadistic and perverted character - was evidenced by graceless laughter and a mirthful shaking of her plump body with pure pleasure. One can only speculate as to the dark forces that enable a human being to experience such a vicarious thrill from the grisly butchery of another human being.
THE AMERICAN CHARACTER
Ah, but isn’t Mrs. Clinton a perfect example of the perverse character of the American people who were but a short time ago bemoaning the supposed mistreatment of a band of murderous cut throats at Guantanamo who were receiving three squares, their own Quran, clean sheets, recreational utilities, and in other words the kindly and gentle molly-coddling of a day care nursery. Can these be the same people who are now cheering the images of an ignominious and barbarous slaughter of a hapless human being at the hands of a howling gaggle of human hyenas?
This government, especially the immediate former and current administrations, has blundered about the middle-east and especially the Bedouin nations with sheer diplomatic ineptitude, a conscious less rogue nation could not have done more damage to the indigenous peoples of middle-eastern nations and to international stability. A more devastating toll in human lives, loss of prestige, monies wasted, declining integrity and an egregiously stupid misreading of imperative cannot be imagined.
Beginning with Iraq then to Egypt and ending with Libya this nation has pursued a course of inhumanity, belligerence, and intentional meanness. One wonders what makes the dimwitted politicos who rule and reign, and the bureaucratic minions who do their bidding, believe that they have the absolute right to obliterate foreign governments at will or by whim. Justification has always been a lie of one kind or another in regard to supposed nefarious acts of a ruler.
was the case with Iraq and Saddam Hussein. The weapons of mass destruction
lie has been plumbed, examined, and studied in great depth. Absolutely
nothing was found, nor will be found, that indicates that there were ever
any weapons of mass destruction. And if there were I submit that Russia,
India, Pakistan, North Korea, China, Israel, Great Britain, France, Germany
and the United States likewise possess weapons of mass destruction. By
whose bellicosity will these sovereigns be called to accountability?
If the United States is so set upon minimizing the number of nations with weapons of mass destruction capability, why is it that the United States armed Germany with 60 tactical B61 nuclear bombs for use by Germany under a NATO nuclear weapons sharing agreement. The bombs are stored at Bushel and Ramstein Air Bases that in time of war they would be delivered by Luftwaffe Panavia Tornado warplanes.
So much for the (justification) that was used to bomb Iraq back to the stone age, to kill and maim a million plus Iraqi civilians, and to exterminate the man who held Iranian aggression in check for eight years. Too be sure Saddam was no saint, but then neither are the political leaders of the United States, and that dear reader is an understatement.
I will receive letters from those who will write that the United States embarked on such militancy to democratize backward nations; indeed the media has advanced this silly notion to a gullible public throughout the course of the series of these ultra-foolish campaigns. Who is the United States that it should presume to impose a specific form of government on autonomous entities. If there are those who sincerely believe that these
Arab states will be democratized please contact me and explain the process, there are other miracles that I would like to see performed; perhaps you can be of help with these other hopeless causes.
What the U.S. has almost single-handedly accomplished is to deliver the hapless residents of militarily demolished and ruined countries into the hands of the blood stained hands of the scurvy and depraved militant Islamic fanatics who believe that they serve their god by slaughtering innocents and terrorizing helpless people.
The political idiots of a domestic kind have brought the U.S. to the point of bankruptcy via their ignorant military actions, and they will most likely finish the job by pouring untold billions of more borrowed money into a rat hole by trying to reconstruct what they have stupidly and callously destroyed.
In retrospect one finds that all that has been accomplished is that the strongmen of Egypt, Iraq, and Ethiopia, who could - and did - resist and control Iranian led Islamic terrorists were removed by U.S. led intrigues. These nations will now be radicalized as components of an international Islamic criminal consortium under the leadership of Iran. The entire world will pay a huge price for the United States’ political ineptitude. Although in candor the U.S. wasn’t entirely responsible for these irrational connives as our politicos were often moved at the surreptitious urging of European nations who are too cowardly to do their own dirty work, such as was the case with Bosnia.
Nevertheless, it can be effectively argued that the United States has nearly single-handedly assembled the elements of the third world war that is prophesied in Daniel 11:40-45.
WHY I WRITE WHAT I WRITE
I receive an interesting assortment of mail, much of it from faithful readers of my writings at newswithviews and also a fair amount from those who catch my columns at various other internet sources. I endeavor to reply to those who write as I think it important to acknowledge the mail of those who take from their valuable time to write in response to an article. When I am able to do so I work the words of some of my replies into my regular columns. That being the case there will be readers of this treatise that will recognize portions of the following:
- in reality - secular opinion articles that I write. The mentions of
scripture that I weave in occasionally are simply to indicate my total
commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ and an acknowledgment of Him as the
sole deliverer of men from sin. He truly is the way, the truth, and the
life. I never immerse myself in theological discourse with anyone as I
have found that there are literally thousands of diverse interpretations
of scripture abroad among those who call themselves Christians.
I balk at calling myself Christian; I am turned off by a label that was in fact coined by the Roman Emperor Constantine. It was he who inculcated so many of the heathen practices - into the modern denominational churches - that are pursued by today's cultural Christians. There is only one genuine church and that is the church built upon Christ. Jesus said this: "And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock (referring to Himself) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Matthew 16:18 He was not talking about the worldly churches of today that deceitfully use His name; He was talking about the repentant sin confessing believers who by the mouth and of the heart have entered into His church. Today it is my belief that the denominational churches are very rapidly amalgamating into that end time worldwide church that will be controlled by Satan.
Interestingly I receive many letters concerning the meanings of faith, grace, and works as they pertain to salvation. In this regard I lean heavily upon the writings of the Apostle Paul; I feel that this is appropriate as I believe him to be possibly the most brilliant contributor to the totality of God's word. He was also unassailable proof of God's grace. He was, prior to His commitment to Christ, an unrepentant and seemingly unalterable persecutor of the followers of Jesus the Christ; some of whom he actually caused to be murdered or tortured. The Bible is clear that it was he who suborned the murder of Stephen. He did not in fact readily accept Christ as Savior or embrace His teachings, he had to be knocked from his mount and blinded by the Lord Himself before He would acknowledge the work of Christ upon the cross for the salvation of men.
In other words Paul is undeniable proof of God's grace through His son the Lord Jesus Christ. I do not concern myself with the semantics of theological banter; I am a confessing believer who by the mouth and of the heart entered into Christ’s church.
my firm and fast opinion that one cannot be a believer in - or a follower
of - progressive ideology and at the same time be a true follower of Jesus
Christ. Everything that such political orientation teaches is in direct
conflict with God's will for men. He did not create men to be controlled,
dominated, or to denied free will and self determination.
Some time ago an individual said to me, "You wouldn't go back to the old days and you know it." Without the slightest hesitation I replied that I would go back in a heartbeat, and I meant it absolutely. The electronic media, cell phones and the filthy social sites that are accessed thereby, television, and the cinema are all tools of Satan and have in fact been literally and incrementally destroying the moral fiber of our society. We are on our last spindly legs and our fall will be echoed down through the ages of history along with that of Rome, Babylon, Assyria and the other fallen empires that God destroyed. We are in fact in the final throes and convulsions of a complete demise.
I was very fortunate to have been born in depression times and to have known the great character of a nation conceived and created on Biblical principles. To never have known such tranquility and peace of mind would have been a great loss in the continuum of life, and I am greatly saddened for the young people of today who have been deprived of such stability and normality in their lives. I loathe what this nation has become and wish for it a return to morality and integrity.

In regard to the media at large, I came out of forty-three years as sheriff and as a law enforcement administrator with an intense dislike of the so-called mass communications industry. It is the most corrupt, bitter, and stonyhearted institution on earth; in this regard it even surpasses the egregiously deep degradation of goodly portion of the lawyer profession. I could search my mind interminably and not come up with one good word or affirmative thought for these stirrers of malice and cold-hearted sensationalism.
The Sermon on the Mount tells me that men are entirely incapable of complete obedience to God's word or to an acceptable submission to the requirements of His Commandments. We are saved by the sinless and innocent blood of Christ that was shed during His selfless, voluntary, and propitiatory death upon the cross. We are saved by grace through faith and not by works, lest any man should boast.
And may His blessings be with you, dear readers...
