Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead











By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
June 20, 2011


Periodically I receive messages suggesting that those who read my columns glean from them the perception that I am entirely distraught and suffer great mental anguish relative to the nearness of this nation to total destruction and a subsequent relegation to the dust bin of history.

Unlike our titular, or I should say nominal, Kenyan born president Barack (Barry Soetoro) Obama I am a natural born citizen of the United States and have never considered a residence or citizenship in or of any other nation. Until the latter years of my life I maintained - if not a flag-raising nationalistic patriotic fervor - a great fondness and respect for the country of my birth. Such has waned through the years and over the last few decades has rapidly dissipated to a point that rather than affection for my homeland I feel a great shame for the filthiness and degradation that has come upon it.

I do not worship this nation nor do I derive from it any spiritual gratification. My absolute allegiance is to the God of creation, the maker of all things and the centerpiece of the entire Universe. No nation, no state, no entity - government or otherwise - and certainly no man transcends the living God in my heart, in my mind, or in my soul. In short I do not grieve for this nation; it is a nation defiled by a people that have disobeyed God’s Commandments, violated His statutes and decrees, and rejected His authority.


“But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said; Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.” -1 Samuel 6 (KJ)

Though G0d’s word ordains government by man to ensure and protect the liberties and unalienable rights granted not by men, but by the Creator; it was never intended that men be subject to the rule and reign of Kings or to be dominated by totalitarian oppressors.

I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. -John 15:5 (KJ)

Men cannot function apart from the living God, without His authority their every act will fail, their every endeavor will come to naught, and their wisdom will turn against them. They will sow wheat, but reap thorns, they will toil mightily and gain nothing; their every work will be done in vain.


I continue to hear that the constitution will save us. Not the Bible mind you, but a constitution of and by men. It is as if the constitution - and the constitution alone - is the basis for the moral principles that directs the affairs of men. This is simply a goofy and specious contention. The constitution never saved anyone and it never will. As a matter of fact it will not save this nation or preserve it from the ultimate destruction that now breathes down our necks. God is not bound by the constitution and unless my power of observation is entirely faulty neither are those who govern this nation, though they ought to be.

I do believe that the constitution as it was contemplated and written by the founders was - a past tense application here - a quite marvelous and venerable document. Some very enlightened and remarkable men constructed the framework of the foundation upon which our government was supposed to rest. The process wasn’t completed until the Bill of Rights was poured into the skeletal structure to cement the whole into a solid base upon which the blocks of regulatory laws were to be laid. The demolition of the whole began almost immediately upon its completion.

Almost immediately, and with rabid intensity, totalitarian-minded loose constructionists applied the wrecking ball to the constitution and never relented in its incremental destruction. As the number of these nationalist revolutionaries increased so the dismantling of the constitution increased. Today it is safe to say that strict construction advocators no longer exist. The entirety of the laws that direct the affairs of government are predicated upon subjective - mostly capricious - judicial decrees. Our laws are no longer grounded in the constitution they are rather the evolutionary bastards of political correctness, nationalistic zeal, and socialist doctrine.

The constitution is now exactly as George W. Bush opined during one of his numerous emperor-like moments.


[As for] my people, children [are] their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause [thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. -Isaiah 3:12 (KJ)

Recently I watched a microcosmic example from the aggregate of stupidity and putridity that pours forth from that telecasting eye that sits in - or hangs upon the walls of - our homes, temporary abodes, saloons, lounges, waiting rooms and I have noticed even the high class lounge areas of the public toilets of the entertainment and dining establishments. The latter would seem to be a fitting place to vent the effluvial stink of the social news and entertainment that is streamed via that great telephonic eye into the mind and soul of a society that is unrestrained by either convention or morality.

The particular sorry bit of flotsam that I am about to explore comes from the continual stream of social sewerage that is beamed via a circuitous route from broadcaster to satellite and then to viewers across the nation. This tale manifests the thought that the entire population of this nation from the youngest to the oldest has exited a state of sanity and has morphed to a soulless and mindless state of being.

The event was precipitated in that now bastion of socialist instruction - a public school classroom. It seems that a singular pubescent delinquent from a seemingly endless cadre of pubescent delinquents became bored with the humdrum of the social instruction being meted out and to relieve the tedium that afflicted his youthful existence hawked up a great green gob of phlegm and spat it onto the window of the classroom. One can only imagine the self-satisfaction this clod derived from such a nasty behave, but unfortunately for this noodle the teacher wasn’t as gratified by his nastiness as he was and ordered him to clean his filthy expectorate from the glass to which it clung.

Now this lout, the apple of some mother’s eye and quite possibly some father’s superstar, leapt to his feet and charged forward while unleashing a barrage of filthy invective upon his ostensibly hapless instructor. I say ostensibly because this 64 year old lady mentor - a twenty-seven year veteran of the teaching profession and a possessor of teacher of the year honors - proved to have the heart and spunk of a pugilistic performer. As she was being bodily battered against a wall by the animate carcass of her swinish assailant she unleashed a deadly aimed straight right fist full of knuckles to his snot-locker that snapped his head back and abruptly brought to an end his assault, and restored a semblance of decorum to her classroom.

This courageous lady teacher who in the process of maintaining classroom discipline that a proper learning environment could be preserved was being forced to defend herself from a physical assault and possible grievous injury. Given that fact and the concept that she is supposed to be the captain of her classroom and the mentor and protector of all of her charges she was of course defended by her administration and commended for the correctness of her action, right? Ah… you silly, she was in fact fired!

Have you not dear reader been keenly aware of the great encompassing cognitive deficiency that holds hostage nearly the entirety of this nation? It is an ignorance that clutches in its grasp a preponderance of the people and the entirety of the numbskulls that occupy and control our social institutions and our government entities on all levels of existence. If a lack of brains was extremely painful these people would scream continually of the attendant pain from the void in their noggins.


Don’t believe what I have just written? View the actions and monitor the comments of the degenerate leaders of this country that are broadcast daily, and if you are not totally convinced you may in fact be a part of the problem. But, I don’t believe this…my readers are erudite and alert; precisely the opposite of the dummies who rule over them.


A nationalism that leads to the denial of the validity of other nations and their cultures is a curse that has wrought more wars than any other factor in history; surely this helps to explain the previous and ongoing series of unauthorized and undeclared wars that the U.S has engaged in throughout the course of the last half century. Following is some verse that shines an interesting light on the subject of war.

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,
He fights with missiles and with spears.
He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,
Been a soldier for a thousand years.

He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist a Baptist and a Jew.
And he knows he shouldn't kill,
And he knows he always will,
Kill you for me my friend and kill for you.

And he's fighting for Canada,
He's fighting for France,
He's fighting for the USA,
And he's fighting for the Russians,
And he's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

And he's fighting for Democracy,
He's fighting for the Reds,
He says it's for the peace of all.
He's the one who must decide,
Who's to live and who's to die,
And he never sees the writing on the wall.

Without him, how would Hitler have
Condemned them at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
He's the one who gives his body
As a weapon of the war,
And without him all this killing can't go on.

He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
His orders come from far away no more,
They come from here and there and you and me,
And brothers can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war. –

This folk singer/writer has most certainly put into verse a distressing declaration of truth. It is the ordinary and lowly grunts that fight and die not for honor, not for freedom, not for glory, and certainly not for you and for me. And I am interminably tired of hearing that they do. They fight that corporate barons can rake in untold billions from the production of arms, munitions, and the peripheral products and materials of war. They fight that politicians can sit on their soft behinds in their cushy digs surrounded by royal accoutrements and benefitted by sky is the limit perks boasting and bragging that they are making the world a safer place. And they fight for the silliest reason of all, that nations can force an ideology or political doctrine upon nations and societies that want to cling to their own cultural ways of life. In short they fight and die, or are maimed, entirely for those who are too damned cowardly to fight for their own selfish interests.

They fight because WAR IS A RACKET.


“Yea, they (the Jews) sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.” -Psalm 106:37-40 (KJ)

And the carnage continues. This nation seems not to be content with the sacrificial deaths of the soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and hapless national guardsmen that are lured onto the killing fields by material enticements, inducements, and monetary bonuses. The killing binge also goes forward on the domestic front via a continuing infanticide.

Though one agonizes over the loss of these young service people we do know that they voluntarily put themselves into harm’s way in the killing zones of some god awful environs. The exception being the 34,000 killed on the blood soaked plains of Korea and the 58,000 who were killed in Viet Nam in the pestilent infested swamps and jungles that were mostly conscripts serving not at their own volition, but forced to sacrifice themselves in undeclared wars by the threat of prosecution and imprisonment by a condemnable government.

As bad as these statistical battlefield casualties may be they fade into insignificance when compared to the number of babies that have been deliberately murdered by a system so monstrous and so unconscionable as to defy belief. It is murder incorporated; a multi-component killing machine that has systematically and cold-bloodedly exterminated 54,500,000 living babies. Think of the atrociousness of it, the blood of fifty-four million five hundred thousand innocent babies’ drips from the infanticidal hands of these maniacal mongrels of humanity.

The detached and unaffectionate citizens, legislators, judges, and civil servants that precipitate the delivery of these babies to the medical executioners may think that they escape culpability for their remote participation, but they do not. They are no less guilty of murder than were the civil and political operatives that delivered millions of victims to the various death chambers of the Third Reich for execution.

It is the medical executioners that kill these babies and extract them from the womb in pieces that I most abhor. These are the Jeffrey Dahmers - serial killers - of the medical profession. Whereas Dahmer drove nails into the heads of his victims these conscienceless sociopaths pierce the heads of living babies with scissors or other surgical instruments and siphon the brains from their skulls. There is a living God and He is a God of absolute justice, and these will stand before Him one day.
I would shudder to think of standing in their place.

Dear folk, such is the state of our nation, a wretched and pathetic state too be sure. I wonder that any would yet be unaware that vengeance is steadily being delivered upon a perverse and depraved people. Every minute of every day corrections are being poured out upon this nation and yet a prideful people continue to rebel against the Creator. They revel in filthiness and wallow in wickedness as their land and possessions are gobbled up by raging waters, their forests combust, their sea coasts are ravished by cyclonic behemoths, their midlands are devastated by hail and tornadic forces, and while stealthily and surreptitiously their life-sustaining requisites vanish. It is (literally) The End.
