Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead

Their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; Wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. Isaiah 59: 7-8


The insanity at the present time in this nation has reached manic proportions, mad men reign, crime flourishes, vice entices, avarice is rampant, evil triumphs, honor is subdued and immorality is encouraged.

A monumental sickness has settled upon the United States. It is a festering putrid character that rests upon this nation, its people, its institutions, and its leaders. All of society clamors after the dragon, righteous thought has dissipated; a sinister specter of evil now marks the collective character of society - a national humanistic/hedonistic persona drives our pursuits.

Ours is a nation without purpose, without grace, and without integrity - a divided nation of broken completeness and without hope.


Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.

But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words, which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts. Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 7: 9-13

Divorce ends fifty percent of first time marriages in this nation, 60 percent of second marriages do not survive, and seventy-three percent of third time marriages in this country fail; tens of millions of homes are destroyed and untold damage is wreaked upon the lives of those who suffer through this societal aberration.

Annually Americans spend four billion dollars on pornography. Millions of young American adults and pre-adult adolescents are hooked on such devastating illicit drugs as crack, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana; the physical and mental destruction, and the social disruption from the criminal acts emanating from this scourge is incalculable.

Mass murderers stalk their prey in the nations stores, restaurants, businesses, factories, and colleges and universities. Sociopath serial killers roam the highways and byways seeking victims as a sacrifice to their sick demonic ritualistic desires.

Neglect of the aged and the infirm and the abuse of women, children, and infants grieves the heart and disrupts and stunts a healthy emotional development of millions of our young people, and makes the lives of the abused a living hell.

Violence and depravity are poured out upon every major metropolis in this nation and the criminal carnage filters down into the suburbs and rural areas at an alarming rate. No one in our society is safe from - or immune to - criminal predations or felonious incursions into their lives. No one!

A nation in which condoms are passed out, without parental consent, to fifth graders cannot long survive.


No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity. Isaiah 59: 4

I noticed that comrade Obama dragged his entire American communist cheering section, or I should say jeering section, to the G-20 Summit in Toronto. Those without the Internet who had to depend upon an American media that reveres the pseudo president as the messiah were of course deprived of knowledge of the goings on in Toronto. Our neighbors to the North were treated to a raucous - and entirely condemnable - display by red-shirted American communist activists who filled the clear Canadian air with filthy invective, burned police cars, filled the immediate atmosphere of their presence with injurious projectiles, impeded the lawful movement of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and otherwise demonstrated their jackass demeanor.

These were depicted by most media outlets as protesters with legitimate grievances and identified as community organizers, union activists, environmental dissidents and advocates for social change. One knows that this country is turned on its head when the media paints peaceful tea party demonstrators as terrorists and pictures these mini-Maoists as legitimate protesters.

There was of course no condemnation or remonstration by the rioters’ revered leader and communist in chief Barack Obama. It is pretty hard to condemn ones compatriots when one has proudly accepted and treasured a campaign endorsement by the American Communist Party. We can only imagine that comrade Obama was pleased with the anarchistic activities of his fellow travelers of like socio/communist ideology. I note that many of his old Chicago conspirators were present including Bill Ayres the mad bomber of the Pentagon, killer of innocents, and the ghostwriter of Obama’s memoirs “Dreams Of My Father”.


In another of his interminable campaign speeches Obama stated the following: “Make no mistake we are headed in the right direction.” By the right direction Obama means his direction. Let’s face it dear reader the people of this nation have in their questionable wisdom elected as their leader an enemy of the state who will not be satisfied until he has delivered the entire nation, and enslaved the people, to totalitarian socialism. State ownership of capital and industry is his desire and the subjection of the people to one-world authority is his goal. I submit that he has been aided and abetted in his quest for the demolition of the republic and the elimination of individual freedom by an indolent, hedonistic, and now non-industrious and socially dependent people. Can anyone argue that it was not the people who have delivered this nomadic interloping usurper to the office of the presidency?


The firing of General McChrystal is simply another version of an old story. As long as nations have existed military leaders have been subjected to the whims and caprices of politicians. Lets face it no matter how they might be dressed up with humanistic terms all wars are fought for selfish political reasons. It is often the case that the Commanders in Chief of nations are totally bereft of knowledge of the tactical aspects of war. If a Commander in Chief, by virtue of previous military experience, has a credible understanding of the aspects of war the tensions between civilian bosses and military commanders is lessened. Winston Churchill comes to mind.

A prime example of these military-political rifts was the tension between Adolph Hitler and his very skillful military commanders, many of who were tactical geniuses. Hitler - a former corporal in the Wehrmacht - fancied himself as an expert in military maneuvers, but he was in fact a tactical novice. All of Hitler’s successes were the result of the political coups that he carried out brilliantly and with extravagant elaborateness. His Achilles heel was his pedantic penchant for promoting political lackeys and his cashiering of the most brilliant of his commanders. Had he possessed the wisdom to allow his commanders flexibility in military matters the entire world might have fallen under a Teutonic heel of oppression.

The upper echelon of the American military is unfortunately comprised of a predominant number of political butt-kissers. Few stand out as extraordinarily competent tacticians and standup commanders, General McChrystal is - or I should say was - the exception. That this man who was a thousand times superior to his civilian boss in terms of skill, intellect, courage, discernment, ethics and character could be fired by a thin skinned novice such as Obama, whose single area of expertise and achievement is in the organization of unproductive rabble, is indicative of the burlesque being played out in American government.


“Howbeit, in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men.” Mark 7: 7

Whenever one hears progressive politicians, soulless bureaucrats, or activist jurists utter the phrase, “rule of law” one can assume that it rolls from their lips for selfish reasons. The manipulation of the rule of law by those who fail to acknowledge that it rests in the Constitution as an inviolable trust constitutes an execration of the principles upon which the nation was founded.

I am entirely nauseated by the drivel shoveled by misguided politicians, deluded tenured university scholars, and self-appointed pundits in regard to their contention that the Constitution is a living breathing malleable document, it is not! Like the Bible, it is a tightly structured instrument that was meant to be rigidly and inflexibly enforced in order to attenuate government tyranny and to ensure personal liberties. That it has been both abridged and modified outside of the Bill of Rights is an unconscionable and despicable assault upon the people.

Today in this nation the rule of law is what some activist judge says it is, what some legislative body decrees it to be, or what some bureaucratic lackey sets down in an administrative ruling. The laws of this nation are not employed to uphold God’s commandments, nor are they utilized to preserve and protect the God-given rights of the citizenry. They are increasingly being used to bully, to coerce, and to oppress. More often than not they are written to truncate the inalienable rights of free men that were once guaranteed by the Constitution.

Increasingly government on all levels uses the law to punish the exercise of personal lawful prerogatives, to extort the fruits of the labors of working people, to enable a legalized extraction of monies from the people via entrapment, and to preempt a citizen’s right to personal control over private property and family. Many of our laws are meant to disengage the guarantees that accrue to the Bill of Rights and to contravene the laws of God, which are immutable and inviolable. Any nation that attempts to mitigate, abate, or abolish the laws set forth by Almighty God will suffer an inimical consequence of their actions.

God’s laws are supreme!


Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

Until we as a nation submit ourselves to the righteousness of God - the true lawgiver - instead of looking to men for our salvation we will continue the freefall into an abyss that now looms large. Only God could save us now, come soon Lord Jesus.

And all God’s people say, Amen!
