The governmental–read: Obama Administration–response to Bridgegate and its (lack of) response to Benghazi are not the least bit surprising. (By the way, I prefer the moniker Bridgeghazi.) The GOP is the enemy. What part of “boots on their necks” and “revenge” was unclear? But this dichotomy is a mere symptom of the chaos which now reigns.
For decades now, many people have been watching what's going on in this country and noting each offense to this nation and to its founding principles. But to take all of the offenses, connect them, and come to an ugly conclusion is daunting.
That ugly conclusion is that progressives have been poised to appropriate this country for a long time, a good hundred years. We had a defense against, but we turned away from it, believing that defense was unnecessary. That defense is known as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
From the moment we turn God out of the public sphere, it's been downhill. Heck, mere months after the decision, JFK got his head blown off on national television. Think of all the things which have happened since then–things which are the result of God removing the hand of protection on this country.
The event which made me sit up and take notice to the rot in this country was the pseudo-prosecution of Sandy Burger. I worked in intel for a number of years and if I had done what he did, I would have done time. But, because he is one of the anointed, he was fined $50,000–pocket change on that level and probably paid by those who put him up to boosting and destroying classified files–and did time sitting doing his no-doubt usual cocktail party circuit.
It was a harbinger of the lawlessness that was to come.
Now we have the ultimate judgment of God upon our country, the evidence of the supposition that He has withdrawn His protection from us: Barack Hussein Obama. And with President Obama have come idiots, the treacherous, the sycophants, the infiltrators and the pillagers. And, with him have come brazen acts of tyranny by the dozen. With him has come the hollowing out of our earthly protection: our military. With him has come the treachery to our friends and the sidling-up to our enemies.
With him has come chaos.
And with every single stab at the body of our Constitution and the philosophical body of it, comes this implicit assertion: “We can do anything we want and, if you, the People, don't like it, we couldn't care less.”
I can't blame people for not wanting to face the fact that we are beset on all sides by our enemies. But when we stopped acknowledging God, He stopped acknowledging us. It's a frightening thing, if one has no source of hope. I do, and I pray to Him daily. And I pray that others will turn back to Him as well–or turn to Him the first time.
That's why I'm not afraid and it's the only reason.
