If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.
~ Daniel Webster
During this Christmas season, America should be reminded that President Barack Obama has perpetrated more vicious attacks against the Christian faith than any other president in the history of America. Therefore, I ask: Is Obama’s ascendancy a sudden catastrophe?
Even many of Obama’s most ardent supporters agree that his first year in office has been a catastrophe:
Increasing the national debt from $10 trillion in eight years under GWB to over $14 trillion;
Nationalizing private corporations like GM, Chrysler, AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac;
Bowing before murderous dictator nations like Saudi Arabia and China;
Undeservedly receiving the Nobel Peace Prize after only two weeks in office, and;
Appointing the basest of men (and women) to Cabinet-level positions and as czars to propagate the most anti-constitutional and hurtful policies against America.
One of America’s greatest statesmen, Daniel Webster, a congressman, a senator and the secretary of state under three different presidents, said almost 200 years ago, “If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the Scriptures.” Webster warned us that a “sudden catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity” if we didn’t “abide by the principles taught in the Bible.”
Even America 150 years ago, during her most wicked and notorious period of slavery, does not compare with where we are today with abortion on demand, with the corpses of 50 million innocent babies we collectively killed, without even a tombstone memorial. How dare we send a charge to former generations for their sins of slavery, lynchings, de jure and de facto discrimination – with our hands stained with the blood of the innocents by our willful acquiesce to this savagery?
Daniel Webster continued his prophetic warnings to this generation, saying:
There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence. … [T]hat in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing.
Is President Obama our “public servant” or are We the People his slaves? I believe that the Obama administration and his puppet masters, like billionaire George Soros, the unions, the Hollywood movie moguls, militant gay and feminist activists, as well as legal organizations like the ACLU and the American Trial Lawyers Association, have nothing but utter disdain for the Constitution and the inalienable rights of the people founded under Natural Law.
How did we get here so fast? In 1980 candidate Reagan failed to pick a bona fide conservative as vice president, which led to Bush 41 becoming a one-term irrelevancy in 1992. This opened the door to the moral degenerate and demagogue Bill Clinton. Bush 43 won two terms faking as a Ronald Reagan conservative and spending like a drunken Democrat.
When Bush 43 speechwriter Matt Latimer got the assignment to write Bush’s speech for a CPAC conference, Bush was decidedly unenthusiastic.
“What is this movement you keep talking about in the speech?” the president asked Latimer.
Latimer explained that he meant the conservative movement – the movement that gave rise to groups like CPAC.
“Let me tell you something,” the president said. “I whupped Gary Bauer’s a– in 2000. So take out all this movement stuff. There is no [conservative] movement.”
How did we get Obama? We got this catastrophe because the GOP nominated an empty suit who denigrated the 20-year Reagan Revolution, that’s why. We have sown the wind of political hacks unworthy of the presidency for 20 years since Reagan left office, electing Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43 and Obama – and now America is tragically reaping the whirlwind with economic, cultural and societal collapse as the world mocks us at every opportunity.
Russia, China and Iran are currently plotting to overthrow America from our long-held position as the world’s greatest and strongest empire. Obama and his socialist minions have always hated American exceptionalism and since the advent of the progressive movement in the 1890s for over 120 years have worked ceaselessly to replace the Judeo-Christian traditions that have made America the greatest nation in the history of humanity, making it the greatest debtor nation in the history of humanity.
Obama did not cause this sudden catastrophe alone. It was caused by many so-called progressives, intellectuals, academics, social engineers, lawyers, judges, liberal special-interest groups and Machiavellian politicians of both political parties.
Would to God we had a statesman in Congress like Daniel Webster who said:
I regard it [the Constitution] as the work of the purest patriots and wisest statesman that ever existed, aided by the smiles of a benign Providence; it almost appears a Divine interposition in our behalf … the hand that destroys our Constitution rends our Union asunder forever.
President Obama is not a patriot. Obama and his socialist legions are arrogant, deceitful political thugs who, along with the corrupt hacks of the Democratic Party, have defiled the austere grandeur of the White House and Congress. As a black man and American, I am insulted by these people who wants to give Miranda rights to terrorists and try them in our courts in New York while court martialing our heroic soldiers for roughing up the perpetrator who murdered, burned and hung over a bridge several of our soldiers in Fallujah, Iraq.
America, let us arise in righteous fury like Daniel Webster to defeat our present rulers, to impeach this “sudden catastrophe” who has usurped the magnificent power and authority of the presidency of the United States of America and restore the Reagan Revolution.
