What America looks like today is far from what it looked like in the 1950’s when I was growing up. My generation, the baby boomers, are the progeny of the Greatest Generation and I am amazed at the difference between the two generations. The Greatest Generation would do whatever was necessary to make a living. A man’s word was his bond. He would keep his word no matter what it cost him. An agreement was solidified with a handshake. Too many of the kids of the Greatest Generation expect to be taken care of. Government assistance is rampant because one can actually make more money living off the government than actually working. The kids of the Greatest Generation rarely keep their word and even if they signed an agreement they find ways to get out of it. We have lawyers that their specialty is breaking contracts.
Our schools are pathetic at best. Teachers unions have destroyed our education system. We were #1 but now we are 14th. There are third world nations that rank higher that the US! According to Pearson, the United States has a “cognitive skills and educational attainment” score of 0.39, which makes the United States rank fourteenth out of forty countries ranked in that category.1 Our kids are no longer taught OUR history because there is too much religion in our history. What that has to do with anything is beyond me. Our history is our history! We teach about islam and even have them learn verses out of their so-called holy book but can’t even have a picture of Jesus hanging in that same school. Our kids have no idea of the sacrifices our Founders made in establishing this nation nor do they know how great America once was. We, as a nation, are only a shadow of what we were, but we are still the nation that people are willing to risk everything to get here. Noah Webster stated: “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” The new America sees no thing exceptional about America.
There are few things that the US leads in any more and I believe it is the fault of the American people not paying attention to who we are electing. The Us is however ranked 1st in incarceration: According to the Brookings Institution, in 2013 there were 710 Americans imprisoned for every 100,000 residents. This makes the United States rank first out of thirty-four OECD countries ranked in that category. The average incarceration rate among the OECD nations is 115. 2 Now that’s something to be real proud of. Iceland only has 47 per 100,000. I believe that the US ranks 1st in abortions, child pregnancies and drug use.
When we established our Bill of Rights it was to state what rights were granted to us by God and the government was to guarantee us but that’s something the government can’t wrap it’s head around because they feel that THEY give us our rights, but I digress. We established that we would have Freedom of the Press. We could print what we felt was needed to be put out there for the people to know. If a politician was doing shady deals he was exposed to all. But today’s press is a complete joke. During the 2008 Presidential campaign the press ignored so much about Obama and his ineligibility. Our Constitution calls for a Natural Born Citizen (NBC) for the office of President. Both parents have to be citizens at the time of birth for a child to be considered NBC. Obama’s dad never became a citizen. Even in this 2016 campaign we saw the press ignore two Republican candidates that were not qualified. Rubio was an anchor baby, born in the US but neither of his parents were citizens. They eventually did become citizens but too late for him to be a NBC.
Cruz is a whole new ball of wax. He was born in Canada, his dad was a Cuban national and his mother, even though born in Delaware was a Canadian citizen when he was born. He has stated that she held dual citizenship but true to lying Ted’s reputation, dual citizenship was not allowed in Canada until 1977, seven years after he was born. She had to be a Canadian citizen to be able to vote in 1970 and she is listed on the voter rolls. I have tried to bring this up to the Cruz-bots that fought at the convention to be able to ‘vote your conscience’ and they refuse to even discuss the matter. That is not something a person of integrity would do. Cruz supposedly had the Constitution memorized in high school and should have known that but memorizing something and understanding what you have memorized is two different things. In the America I grew up in the media would have exposed Obama, Rubio and Cruz but not the media of today. As I brought up in a recent column virtually all media moguls are members of the Council on Foreign Relations and their goal is a new world order. No borders, no personal property, no sovereignty personal of national, wealth distribution, i.e. giving all of America’s wealth to developing nations whether we want to or not.
Out of the 17 candidates that were in the Republican primaries all were globalists except Trump. Does all the opposition to him make since now. He will stop the draining of America’s wealth and that goes against the globalists agenda. The America I grew up in always had the best interests of the American people in the forefront. The Democrats had begun to be infiltrated by the CFR, the Illuminate, the Bilderbergs and others that push the NWO. Let’s look at comments from some of the party elites. “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.” Strobe Talbot, President Clinton’s Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, 1992.; “Today the path of total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government – a bureaucratic elite.” – Senator William Jenner (R), 1954; “We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991; “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” – Henry Ford; “Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” – David Rockefeller, Memoirs, page 405; “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” – David Rockefeller.
The road we are on has been a long time in the making. Little by little we have let our great nation slip into the hands of people who are not patriots. Have we begun to wake up to the obvious threat to our way of life, our culture, our future? I would hope so. We do have on our side the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and if we call upon Him He will heal our land, 2 Chronicles 7:14. I hope that we call upon Him this election for wisdom and grace. The forces against us are great but they are not undefeatable. If God be for us, who can be against us? Their ultimate goal is the destruction of America’s patriotism, America’s religion, Christianity, and all that we have dear.
“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.” – Brock Adams, Director UN Health Organization. This is what we fight against. God expects us to fight. You may not like the candidate or you may use the lame excuse that you won’t vote for the lesser of two evils but you’d better. Here is a portion of an article by David Barton that all Christians need to read. Christians who won’t vote for Trump, Barton said, need to realize that “maybe God’s got a different standard than what we do. Maybe at a national leadership level, there are people who do good things for the nation who have character flaws … What God calls great leaders wouldn’t fit your litmus test, but maybe you need to catch up with where God is rather than expecting God to catch up with where you are.”
“Voting is not a right, it is a responsibility,” Barton said. “God wants you to be locked in that room with a ballot box and don’t come out until you vote. And if you have that approach, then you’re going to have to find the best you can of what is there and vote for it.”
“We will stand before God one day and answer for everything we’ve said and thought and done,” he continued. “[God will say,] ‘I gave you your country, what did you do that with?’ ‘Well, I didn’t do anything because I didn’t like any of the candidates.’ Really? You think God is going to buy that? In Matthew 25 and Luke 19, the guy who was given something to do and didn’t do anything with it, he’s the one who got in trouble with the master. He’s going to say, ‘I gave you a vote. What did you do with that vote I gave you?’ ‘Well, I couldn’t use it for anybody.’ And again, we’re back to Matthew 25 and Luke 19 where Jesus turned to him and said, ‘Wait a minute, you didn’t do anything with what I gave you, at all?’ And that is the one who got thrown into outer darkness.” 3
