Rev.1: 8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.---Jesus is the Alpha and Omega- the Almighty!
Daniel 11:33. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
I have been sensing something about
the mood of many Americans that I think is unprecedented in the history of the
nation. It is a fear of the President. A fear that one observer, Daniel Henninger
of The Wall Street Journal, calls “the president’s creeping authoritarianism.”
Obama has had four and a half years
to pursue his goal of “transforming” America and, along the way, he has
continually expressed his disdain for the constraints of the Constitution, his
contempt for Congress and the Supreme Court, and, if his recent speeches are
any indication, his belief that enough Americans are so dumb they will believe
anything he says.
Overall, there is a growing sense of
foreboding as four in five Americans are facing some degree of poverty and a
small chance of finding work. One can feel the nation slowing down, its
momentum sapped, its national sense of optimism being drained.
The bankruptcy of a major American
city, Detroit, tells one everything they need to know about the result of
decades of liberal governance and its acceleration under Obama. What other
cities face a similar fate? Is the nation on the path to becoming a third-world
I had my own fears evoked by a news report
that “The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge
user’s stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these
orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not
previously been disclosed.”
In countless ways, the
Constitutional protection of privacy is being eroded along with reports that
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been purchasing huge quantities
of ammunition and military-style vehicles. A new book discusses the way local
police forces have been developing SWAT teams with similar capabilities. What
kind of domestic uprising is DHS anticipating? And why is it anticipating it?
The National Security Agency is
building a huge complex in Utah, larger even than the Pentagon, to store data
it collects, presumably about Americans as well as foreigners. Kiss the Fourth
Amendment goodbye, yet Congress just voted to sustain the NSA without
Why hasn’t Congress acted to repeal
the National Defense Authorization Act that permits the government to arrest
and detain any American without recourse to an attorney or the courts?
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has
been on a tear, presumably to find out the sources of leaks in the Obama
administration, seizing the telephone records of the Associated Press without
giving the AP due notice.
Americans are beginning to suspect
that there is little justice to be found in the DOJ, particularly since the
revelations about “Fast and Furious”, an idiotic program of the Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms agency to purchase and “walk” guns into Mexico in order to
“track” them. It was obvious they would end up in the hands of the drug
cartels. It took an executive order by Obama to shut down a congressional
investigation into this bizarre scheme. His administration has done everything
it could to undermine the Second Amendment.
Over at the Internal Revenue
Service, one of its officials accused of targeting patriot organizations
seeking tax except status has plead the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering a
congressional committee’s questions.
Meanwhile, the Affordable Care
Act—Obamacare—is in the process of expanding the IRS as the government begins
its takeover of one sixth of the nation’s economy with a piece of legislation
that has already been declared a “train wreck”, unmanageable and, most
importantly, so intrusive into our personal lives that no previous generation
would have ever allowed it. Obamacare is already wrecking the economy as
businesses large and small try to anticipate its costs.
The appalling lies about the
terrorist attack on the U.S. Benghazi consulate are evidence in themselves that
the Obama administration is prepared to deceive Americans about the killing of
a U.S. ambassador and three of his security personnel. The orders given during
the course of the attack were to do nothing. This is unprecedented. And
Americans out of work have very real cause to fear for their well-being, but
the President recently told them the real threat was “climate change”, not an
economy that is not producing jobs, but in fact shedding them, keeping the rate
of unemployment unchanged for years.
There is a point when one must ask
if this is deliberate and not just the result of bad domestic policies. If the
answer is yes, then Americans have real cause to fear the President and the
prospect of living in a surveillance state where everything they communicate
and everyone with whom they communicate can be identified.
There are those raising warnings
about the direction in which the nation is going, but unless there are
demonstrations by Americans that want to see an end to these laws and trends,
the progress toward tyranny will continue.
Marches are being planned for
Washington, D.C., and they may hold the key to the future before America
becomes a totalitarian nightmare.
