We watched and saw, prior to the 2020 elections and even the 2016 elections, that the Leftists are willing to utilize any governmental bureaucracy or entity to target those who disagree with them. Donald Trump may be many things, but I believe he loves America and was willing to fight for Americans. He did not need to run for President, he was not a career politician but a businessman. He, in my view, was and is a pragmatist, and believed that right would prevail, and he could work with both sides. He was wrong and the Left and RHINOs proved it.
We might not have known the depth and breadth of the DC swamp had he not run and won the presidency. I suspect that it has a much broader scope of influence than any of us truly see. The tentacles of globalism and statism reach far beyond the politicians and our borders. It is global and the powers, movers, and shakers of the world want total control and they are willing to do anything to seize it.
We watched the FBI and other intelligence agencies target Trump supporters. We watched the IRS used as a political weapon against anyone and anything conservative or holding to traditional Christian values. We watched churches cave as they were threatened with the denial or revoking of their 501(c)(3) status. In contrast, the Muslim Brotherhood, and their American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), as well as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), enjoyed tax exemption with no threat to their status.
We watched as individuals and businesses were targeted for not embracing the LGBTQ agenda and have been inundated with attempts to brainwash our children. I recall one report where kindergartners at the Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington County, Virginia were subjected to ‘transgender messaging’ on Read Across America Day! That is beyond ludicrous and should have every parent camping at the door of the Principal or Superintendent of Schools in protest.
The Biden administration following the cue of the Obama administration has labeled anyone opposing BLM, Critical Race Theory, or their many mind-numbing projects as Domestic Terrorist. Basically, if you are a conservative, ex-military, Christian, and hold the Constitution of the United States as the Law of the Land, you are a Domestic Terrorist to the Leftist.
In my view, those on the Left and this administration view all who disagree with them as the problem and themselves as the victims. Hillary Clinton announced many years ago that her view of childcare was that “It takes a village to raise a child.” She ignored and they continue to ignore the biblical, moral, and needful place of the parents in the home. The Left has targeted men for decades and especially among Black families they have embarked on a path to eliminate the father from the home.
Why would they do that? If they can eliminate the father’s influence, then the educational system and the government can mandate what the child is taught. By eliminating the father’s role, they have a greater opportunity to make the family dependent upon the entitlements of the government. Whatever the government subsidies it controls. The objective is clear, and our needed response is as well.
Joe Biden moved to destroy Religious-Based Childcare in his “Build Back Better” plan. He has sought to eliminate the Religious-Based Childcare facilities by dumping truckloads of money on the states to build universal prekindergarten and care for children over 6 years of age. They want to eliminate any funds from organizations that do not comply with their mandates and hold traditional Christian biblical values. Money talks and sadly, many caved to get the gold.
Our founding fathers envisioned a Republic that would continue so long as the people, maintained vigilance. They warned of the dangers of allowing corrupt people to ascend to elected positions. They knew the dangers of despotism, tyranny, and oligarchies. They warned and warned but we decided that since we were not affected personally in a significant fashion, we would let the politicians handle the politics. That has been beyond costly and could mean our demise as a Republic.
The Prophets of the Bible were individuals who spoke for God or from God. They had a common link their heart was a heart for hearing God. They received an anointing from Him to impart his message to the people. It might be a warning of danger, judgment, or a promise of blessing for obedience. In 2 Peter 1:21 we read, “For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke for God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
I believe we have had at least three American presidents who spoke prophetically. They may not have understood that was what they were doing, but history reveals the prophetic of their declarations. Those three, disagree if you choose, are George Washington, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan. The prophetic farewell messages offered by those men offer guidance and counsel for our future as a Republic.
Among the many things Washington encouraged was that people, whether born here or emigrated here should become Americans and espouse the name American. He warned against factions and divisions within the body politic that would be exploited by those seeking to gain power and control of the government at the expense of the people. That was prophetic and we are witnessing that very attempt.
Washington warned that those factions and divisions could and probably would lead to animosity, violence, and unwanted foreign influence. He encouraged his fellow citizens to be faithful to the constitution and gave a dire warning regarding violations or impromptu changes to that document. He warned that they might be advantageous in the short term, but that in the overall scheme of things would undermine free government.
He also embraced Faith in God our Creator and in the Providence of God’s guiding hand that inspired and shaped his career and the birth of the new nation. That was his constant encouragement and inspiration.
Dwight D. Eisenhower entreated for the proper use of Military Power. He stressed the importance of the United States remaining true to its founding ideals of “liberty, dignity, and integrity.” He, like Washington, urged Americans to always be “strong in our faith.”
Sadly, his warning about the military-industrial complex went largely unheeded and our remaining strong in the faith diminished with the infringement of the government on our 1st Amendment Rights.
Ronald Reagan urged Americans to maintain a high standard of moral integrity and to demand it from politicians. He called America a magnet for the world and where freedom is an inspiration to the oppressed of the world. He reminded us that Freedom must be defended over and over again, and then again. He identified the need for America to have “an informed patriotism.” He said, inciteful, “All great change in America begins at the dinner table.”
The providence of God gave us the greatest nation to exist and we were warned by our forefathers to preserve our Republic. Have we failed? Time will tell. Will we reclaim that which has been lost? Time will tell. Can we recover from this current disaster? The next two elections will determine our fate.
God bless you and God bless America!
