America and the rest of the world got hijacked in the early 1960s, when a hurricane-force from hell was unleashed upon the earth. As the evil assault gained in strength and ferocity, wickedness increased exponentially to the point where we now have become so desensitized to reports about terrorist acts, genocide, rapes, abortions, school shootings and brutal murders, that we hardly realize the degree of darkness and mayhem of evil that surrounds us. ~ Quote from Steve Gallagher in the Introduction to America on the Cusp of God’s Grace.
Full disclosure before I begin. The black friends and neighbors I have been acquainted with for the past 50+ years or so are absolutely NOT in the same vein as the black bigots and terrorists that have been roiling the United States since the days of MLK Jr. The problem America faces today in light of the latest terrorist attack in Dallas has nothing whatsoever to do with black vs white, but everything to do with the “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”. Oops! For Roman Empire read “the Constitutional Republic of the United States”.
As I’ve posted numerous times before, the death of Law came about at the end of 1962, with the last of the decisions from SCOTUS which stripped from public schools the Bible, prayer, the posting of the Ten Commandments, and anything else of a Godly nature. Until the Marxists and hidden communists dwelling amongst us began the implementation of the 45 Communist Goals To Taking Over America, American education had always been rooted in Judeo-Christian morality. Indeed, it was Christians who founded every early school, college, and university you can think of, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and a host of others.
Moses holding the Ten Commandments represents all of Western Civilization’s legal foundations. To strip away all of those foundations under the phony, twisted Soviet-style guise of “separation of church and state” is a farce. It could produce only the destruction of the Rule of Law and it has produced that in abundance. The number of people who have wisely noted this over the past half-century-plus, and written at great length about it, is both vast and timeless. And you can be sure your kids have never been exposed to one single syllable of any of those writings inside the halls of today’s educational system – not in K-12, not in colleges, nor universities, nor any of the other numerous halls of learning.
The law has been dying the past fifty-something years because of a leftist power-hungry leadership doing as leftist power-hungry leaderships do. Nothing more, nothing less.
Let’s begin with the Legislative Branch. Back in 1954 in a bout of petulance over controlling what can or cannot issue forth from a church pulpit, an obscure but no less powerful personage known by his initials LBJ, manufactured what is termed today the Johnson Amendment, otherwise known as a 501(c)3. Appearing on the Senate floor on July 2, 1954, he shrewdly offered his amendment to a pending, massive, tax code overhaul bill. When all was said and done, what this law did in effect, was to remove God from the pulpit of political debate about the future of the United States.
As to the Judicial Branch, the Johnson Amendment became the forerunner of God, the Bible, and prayer being basically removed from our schools of learning. America’s moral decline rapidly accelerated following one event – the U.S. Supreme Court’s removal of prayer from our nation’s schools. On June 25, 1962, 39 million students were forbidden to do what they and their predecessors had been doing since the founding of our nation – publicly calling upon the name of the Lord at the beginning of each school day. This simple prayer, invoked by the New York school children which prompted the Engel vs. Vitale ruling, was: “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee and beg Thy blessing over us, our parents, our teachers and our nation.”
Since then, America has experienced radical decline in each of the four areas which the children’s prayer touched upon, the tenets of which are: youth, family, education, and national life. The removal of prayer from our schools was a violation of the third commandment, the content of which commands us: “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” By the judicial act of forbidding invocation, the Court audaciously elevated a secularized system of education beyond the authority, reach and blessing of God Himself. Worse than taking the Lord’s sacred name in vain is treating it with contempt, denying its rightful place and stripping it from public use and even from the lips of children. Jesus’ own expressed desire, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them” was also violated by these judges, many of whom were raised in Christian homes.
Subsequently, the moral decline of the United States escalated in 1973 with the most egregious decision the Supreme Court of the United States has ever brought forth, the infamous Roe v Wade. In that case the seven-person majority of the Court declared (in a ghastly opinion by Justice Harry Blackmun) that the historic Texas Abortion law, which had codified the centuries-old common law rule prohibiting elective (non-therapeutic) abortions was unconstitutional. The practical effect of Roe and Doe was an eruption in the killing of unborn children in the United States and it has all been downhill ever since.
And so to the Executive Branch. Suffice to say that since the glory days of the Reagan administration the United States has been woefully and underwhelmingly represented by all four successional White House occupants, bringing us to the point where We The People are today ruled, not led, by the present corrupt “hope and change” administration that has literally thrown the Constitution out the window. Notice that I’m intentionally using the broad brush approach here. The abject failure and insouciance of all four administrations, the Congress, and judiciary have brought the nation to where it sits today. Godless. Spineless. Divisive. Failing miserably.
Consider this list of grievances, following decades of Liberal-Progressive-Democrat public policy and culture, and what has transpired since that infamous entry into serfdom wrought on America by that long-ago edict from LBJ. Accelerated in great measure the past eight years, and brought into focus by the dismal display of James Comey the past few days, twisting himself into pretzels of untruth before the House Oversight Committee on the Clinton email scandal:
Racial Division / Class Warfare / Destructive Behavior / Judicial Leniency / Judicial Activism / Justice Involved Individuals / Impotent Law Enforcement / Open Borders / Moral equivalency / Entitlement Mentality / Sanctuary Cities / Criminal Illegal Aliens / Criminal Refugees /
Weakened Military / Political Correctness / Trigger Warnings / Hate Crimes / Dependency / Defenseless Citizens / Abortion on Demand / Chromosome Denial / Revisionist History / Devastated Cities / Single Parent Families / Victimhood / Inferior Public Education / Insolvency / Oxymoronic Same Sex Marriage / LGBT Misogyny / Men In Women’s Bathrooms / Hate / Anger / Fear / Racism / Bigotry /
No hope / No future / No reason to live /
Just where have we come to from the likes of all those American heroes, men and women who stand for honor, justice, and peace, only to land in the trough with the rap stars and professional sports icons who are emulated and sought after by their black brethren as examples of the American dream? When LeBron James wears a shirt declaring “I can’t breathe” he promotes bitter unlawful behavior. The Black political plantation owners the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, the Reverend Wright, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and others, collaborate to make their plantation co-dependent on their intrusion, making this a very dark moment in today’s American history. Those who swore to protect us are now being massacred and their deaths celebrated, while the murderers are put on pedestals by the media, constantly inflaming their cause as a just one. They’re oppressed. We’re oppressed. The country is oppressed. We are at a crossroads in American history where evil has the upper hand because the good men are all too quiet.
SOMEBODY had better back ’em (the Blue, that is). As for gunz ‘n roses, the BLM leadership and their folks had better get the drugs, weapons, pillaging, rioting, and other acts of mayhem under control and away from their neighborhoods, before they blame “whitey” and cops for stinging back. How’s about getting back to Godly observances, stable family values, and away from all the mess that single black-motherhood foists upon the community at large? That might be a good place to start. “Can’t we all just get along?” ~ That long-ago plaintive cry from Rodney King (hardly a role model) in 1991 after being pulled over drunk as a skunk in his car and attempting to wrestle with the cops. Just what were they supposed to do – dance with him? Nevertheless, he never changed his ways and died in a drowning from a drug overdose in 2012, so where were the BLM folks to help him then in his distress? Don’t blame “the Blue” or “whitey”. Sort it out yourselves. Get a J.O.B. for one thing!
In closing, let me have you consider this. Throughout history, morality has always flowed through mothers, grandmothers, aunts and other assorted women in our lives, as we grew up, learned the ways of the world, and the machinations of life’s travails. Even in the animal kingdom it is largely so.
With the passing of Roe v Wade, that construct died with the relative ease of abortion, as tens of millions of women went to work decades ago. It’s taken a few generations to manifest itself but it turns out that the morality of women is no more noble, ethical, benevolent or altruistic than it is for men. Whether or not the special or particular morality of women simply never was or has actually morphed with time, I will leave for each to ponder on his/her own. The law (and laws) will never die. The moral compass that we use to follow our laws that enable the engines of social order to advance civilization is what is dying, and we saw this on full display with the Comey/Clinton hearings this week. “Yes she’s guilty; no we won’t prosecute.” The moral compass of Justice just got up and fled. Now here comes Hellary and she’s no Maggie Thatcher.
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right, an indisputable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean the characters and conduct of their rulers … Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.” ~ John Adams
Meanwhile the Lords and Ladies in Washington D.C. keep beating me over the head with their nonsensical meme that “this is a gun problem.”
The only thing that will heal us totally and completely, is REPENTANCE. We must quietly step down from our thrones, walk peacefully, humble ourselves, and seek God with a repentant heart. Truly.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14
