I asked that question and had a follower of toxic liberalism say, “It’s on the map between Asia and Europe.” Wow! If I were asking a geographical question rather than a rhetorical one that might be a valid conclusion. However, my question, “Where is America?” is not about geographic location but governmentally, socially, morally, and judicially. I am asking, where this nation is with respect to constitutional governance and judicial integrity. So, “Where Is America?”
We were told by Obama and Biden that there was not ‘one whiff of a scandal in their administration. We were told that, but everyone including those two players in the scheme of ‘fundamental transformation’ knows it was light-years from the truth. The more things are revealed the more we see the corruption of leading figures in the Democratic Party. The tentacles of corruption do not stop at the Party line but there are prominent Republicans whose hands are dirty too.
I don’t like the blanket charge of something be systemic such as institutional racism or whatever the PC Police and Snowflake world claim to discredit Trump and/or Conservatives. However, I believe there are signs of ‘systemic corruption’ in government. It is not relegated to the elected officials, if it were, that would be a relatively easy fix. It reaches into the vastness of the Swamp and Deep State and is embedded in every government bureaucracy.
We watched the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service become weaponized under Obama. We watched the Intelligence Community and the Federal Bureau of Investigation become tools to target and attack those not following the ideology of toxic liberalism, globalism, socialism, and anti-Americanism. If you were not a part of that team you were a prime target for attempted destruction.
I have shouted from the rooftop for over two decades about the systematic implementation of schemes to make America something other than the Free Constitutional Republic we were given by the Founding Fathers. I have cited the numerous incidents of indiscretion and playing free and loose with the rules, the constitution, and our national security by the Obama administration and his subordinates. Some have charged that I have become a broken record.
Some claim I never cited any failures of Trump and the Republicans. Those who know me know that is not the truth. Unfortunately, perception often becomes a person’s reality and once they take a side, they refuse to acknowledge anything that discredits their position. I am not always right. I know that is a surprise (tongue firmly planted in cheek). But, when I realize I have been wrong; I try to quickly rectify that position. I repent where needed, recant my statements, and present the truth. I do not care if a violator is on the Right or the Left, America is too valuable a prize to allow the corruption that now exists to continue.
I cite one more incredibly damning bit of factual information regarding the state of corruption in the Obama administration. An administration that Joe Biden was an integral part of. After years of investigation into Trump’s supposed violations of the law, the constitution, and complicity with foreign governments with nothing being produced the Left has ignored all the facts regarding their side. The United States Senate has produced documented evidence of another improper action by former President Barack Obama. His administration knowingly funded an al-Qaeda affiliate. I guess his promise that if the political winds turned sour, he would side with the Muslims included siding with those who consider us the Great Satan every time.
The non-profit humanitarian agency World Vision United States improperly transacted with the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) in 2014 with the approval of Obama. He allowed government funds to be sent to an organization that had been sanctioned over its ties to terrorism. I may not be a legal scholar but that sounds like an act of sedition and treason, but then I’m just a dumb deplorable so what could I know?
The ISRA had been sanctioned by the United States since 2004 after it had funneled about $5 million to Maktab al-Khidamat, the predecessor to Al-Qaeda controlled by Osama bin Laden. I keep trying to give the benefit of the doubt and acknowledging that World Vision works to help people in need around the world, an admirable activity, they might not have known ISRA was on the sanctions list. But, and that is a big ‘but’, government officials specifically released at least $115,000 of the grant even after it learned of the terrorism connection sanctions. AFTER it was fully aware it provided funds to our sworn enemy.
World Vison’s legal department was notified of ISRA’s status as a sanctioned entity in September 2014. Let me see, who was President? It was not George W. Bush or Donald Trump. It was Barack Hussein Obama and his Vice President Joe Biden. In May 2015, the Obama administration fully cognizant of the sanctions recommend OFAC grant World Vision’s request for $125,000 for ISRA.
I am less concerned with what World Vision knew or did not know than what the Obama administration clearly knew. His billions in cash to Iran, the systematic dismantling of our military and the purging of the upper echelon of various branches, and his weaponizing of bureaus and agencies trouble me. His complicity and that of Joe Biden in the targeting of Trump and Trump associates in 2016 cannot be overlooked. The questionable financial windfalls of Biden and his family in connection with foreign governments not all friendly to the United States is troubling.
We have mountains of information in various investigations that implicate Obama, Clinton, Biden, and various members of that administration, bureaus of government, and even members of Congress. Yet, all that seems to be deemed business as usual in Washington. This present Democratic Congress dating back decades is willing to send billions in foreign aid to countries for purposes that border on the ridiculous while ignoring Americans and America. That is troubling!
Back to my question, “Where is America?” If we are talking about the America of the beginning, it has been tarnished and twisted into an unrecognizable state. If we are talking about the America of my youth when even Democrats and Republicans acknowledged the validity and authority of the Constitution, it has been eroded so dramatically it may not be restorable. America, as described and defined in our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights no longer exists because of the systemic corruption of power hunger political elitists we keep sending back to Washington.
I do not know if America as established and envisioned by our Founders Established is recoverable without another revolution. I pray that it is. I only know that we cannot continue allowing politicians to go unscathed by corruption and allow them to infringe upon our inalienable rights and trample on the American constitution. Everyone must be held to the same standard regardless of status or ethnicity.
I believe that if we do not return to our moral moorings and a renewed valuing of the Constitution that America is gone forever. I believe that the only thing, short of a full-blown revolution and a new government established is GOD! I believe that God is sovereign and All-Powerful. However, I also recognize that He gives us choices, and, in those choices, we determine the outcome. I am praying for an outpouring of His Spirit, Word, Love, Grace, and Mercy on America and the world. LORD, let it begin in me. Transform me, I pray!
God bless you and God bless America!
