It gives me little comfort to say, “See, I told you so.”
Starting in 2008, there were many voices warning what an administration headed by a radical, Chicago-style gangster like Barack Obama would mean for America. But none of those voices were as relentless and prolific as WND.
We exposed his background.
We exposed his associations.
We exposed his policy positions as a “community organizer,” an Illinois state senator and during his brief career as a U.S. senator.
We exposed the lies in his books.
We exposed the still-unanswered questions and cover-up of his eligibility problems.
We exposed his Marxist connections, appointments and leanings in “The Manchurian President.”
And we continued by exposing what he would do in a second term if he got the chance in “Fool Me Twice,” a book, by the way, as relevant today as the day it was published in 2012.
We hoped for the best, but, at the end of the day, “the low-information voters” prevailed.
Am I surprised Obama is now simultaneously caught up in three of the biggest political scandals in American history?
I’m surprised it took this long.
It’s in Barack Obama’s nature and character to do “whatever is necessary” to prevail over his enemies. And his enemies include the Constitution of the United States.
He needs to be brought to justice for his abuse of the First Amendment in spying on news agencies.
He needs to be brought to justice for using the Internal Revenue Service as an attack dog against his political foes.
He needs to be brought to justice for abandoning Americans to be mutilated and killed in Benghazi.
He needs to be brought to justice for the forgotten scandal of “Fast and Furious,” in which he and his Justice Department ran guns to the drug cartels in Mexico, resulting the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents and countless Mexicans and American civilians.
Will this all catch up with him?
Will there be justice?
Will the dysfunctional political system and the dysfunctional media do what needs to be done?
I hope so. But I can’t help but think Obama and all he has wrought on America – including a health-care system that violates the consciences of Americans and will result needlessly in immense pain, death and suffering – actually represent justice for the country. We’re getting just what we deserve – not only because we allowed him to be elected twice, but because Americans have lost their moral bearings.
Obama is only a symptom of the disease that plagues us.
We can’t win unless we recognize that what we are seeing happen to America is part of a divine judgment of those who were given so much, who were so blessed by God, yet turned our collective backs on Him.
We can yell and scream about what we’re facing. We can hope the broken system still works. We can cheer each new revelation about corruption, fraud, waste and abuse, hoping our fellow Americans catch on. But, at the end of the day, none of it will matter unless we remember why we’re experiencing these trials and tribulations.
Americans – and more precisely God’s people in America – have been asleep at the switch. We’ve become too worldly. We’re not serving as the salt and light we’re commanded to be. We’re not humbling ourselves before the throne of God. We’re not praying and repenting of our own sins as we look around us and condemn the sins of others. We’re not seeking His face.
If we want to see the nation turned right-side up, God’s people, those called by His name, need to do all those things. We need to learn from the mistakes of the first people God chose – the nation of Israel.
I believe this is our only hope.
That’s why I have thrown myself behind the 9-11-13 National Day of Prayer and Repentance.
Our nation is literally imploding morally and spiritually. Every man and woman does what’s right in his own eyes. The church is asleep.
Do you want to see miracles happen in America? Do you want to see the nation restored? Do you want to see us return to the godly principles that shaped the nation and provided blessings beyond imagination to us all for so long?
I am persuaded this is the way.
I hope and pray you will join me.
If you do, I look forward to saying, “See, I told you so!”
