Staying one step ahead of the Blitzkrieg, part 2: "Obama meets his match -- US"

"We will bury you." — Nikita Khrushchev (September 17, 1959)

"Behold, the people are one, and they have one language, and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do [but] LET US go down and confound [them] . . So the Lord scattered them." Genesis

WE ARE RELIVING THE TIMES OF THE TOWER OF BABEL. The people had lost faith in God. Much of the population of the globe now is also familiar with "one language" — English — not to mention Java script, DOS, etc.! Technology is "king" and the people imagine a vain thing — the New World Order — which will allow the "lame to walk and the blind to see."

But like a festering boil, something else is coming to a head. Most people can "sense" it. On the 49th anniversary of Khrushchev's 1959 prediction, there was a run on the banking systems of the world's Superpower. It seemed like an invisible Hand from nowhere, but in fact it came from somewhere (mostly from the debts with which we had buried ourselves). It didn't "surprise" some of us. But now what?

The world didn't end at the tower of Babel, but it was turned up-side down, like our social standards and the economic situation. The people at Babel had become "scatter-brained" and "The Law of Nature, and of Ages, and of Nations" violated, had unintended unforeseen consequences.

As someone once said, "God forgives [for awhile]. Man sometimes forgives. Nature NEVER forgives."

President Obama talks ("eloquently") about a "balance" between moral standards and modern "research," but he knows what he's doing: He's turning our morals on their head. Leaving aside the practical folly of embryonic stem-cell research vs. that of adult stem cells (including bone marrow and umbilical cord stem cells), you don't need to be a rocket scientist to see where Ivy League/Princeton/Peter Singer ethical standards are leading us.

In an article that the Milwaukee Sentinel published on March 5, 1975, Nick Thimmesch said, "The extermination of 10 to 12 million people did not happen through an overnight decision by Adolf Hitler. . . . No, it was a group of Austrian and German physicians and jurists who came to believe, in the 1920s, that there were human lives devoid of value, and that it would be merciful to terminate those lives. . . .

"In May of 1935, the Hamburg Eugenics Court declared that the interruption of pregnancy for eugenic reasons (or, 'racial emergency') was exempt from punishment, thereby legalizing eugenic abortion. . . . There followed the 'mercy killings' of some 275,000 German 'undesirables' in state hospitals: mental patients, epileptics, encephalitics, amputees (including World War I veterans), deformed and retarded children. It was all clean, clinical and modern."

[Hitler didn't want his "Aryans" to abort of course, but "minorities" were a different story.]

"Deja vu all over again," as the Yogi said. Germany virtually died within 10 years. German soldiers and citizens alike suffered deaths that were anything but "merciful" as a direct result. Life is a paradox, and there are causes for every effect. But enough of this!

Almost everything that was needed to be written to warn us has already been written. It is high time for you and me to "do something." Our leaders in Congress are telling the President to "do something; whatever it is, do it quickly."

Christ told Judas, "Whatever you're going to do, do it quickly." Carpe diem. Seize the moment. In other words, "All is flux" as Aristotle had said, and if the moment had passed, the masses might have said, "Give us Christ" instead of "Give us Barabbas." The people might have awakened to the Truth unless the Romans and the High Priests had acted "quickly."

A CRISIS IS TOO BIG AN OPPORTUNITY TO WASTE, SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE. So they are acting as "quickly" as possible, while they think that they have an "opportunity" to silence all opposition with intimidation, public relations, and sound bytes. If President Clinton was "slick," President Obama is cunning. But even as I write, the moment may be passing too "quickly" for them. Approval ratings are "sliding" already. And the biggest "tracking poll" of them all, the Dow Jones average, is betraying a lack of trust by the stakeholders of the country (the half of the populace that owns — or owned — stocks).

Are we "doomed"? Depends.

"Upon this battle depends the future of Christian civilization," said Winston Churchill during the Battle of Britain.

The Obama State Department looks upon that un-PC statement as quaint and backward-looking, anachronistic. "There is nothing special about our relationship with Britain," they say. Worst of all, much of the populace of Britain has forgotten Churchill and our Heritage.

"What two ideas are more inseparable than Beer and Britannia?" asked the preacher Sydney Smith (1771-1845). In 2009 in Britannia, it's just the booze. Smith said a lot of things, and one of them was:

"Death must be distinguished from dying, with which it is often confused."

"Hail, Columbia! happy land!

Hail, ye heroes! heaven-born land!"
— Joseph Hopkinson (1770-1842)

While the Brits — and our Leftists — have forgotten our Heritage, there remains a "vestigial" portion of this Spirit yet. We are only doomed if we TOO toss that Heritage to the wayward winds. Judas sold Christ for 30 pieces of silver. We are tempted to sell our children and grandchildren into slavery for a trillion pieces of paper in "earmarks, pork, and free beer."

Not incidentally, your tax dollars are now going to be going into Nazi-style "medical research" grants. Thank God I'm retired and they won't be using MY money. At President Obama's signing of his executive order on embryonic stem-cell research, he verbally "opposed" human cloning, but then he said that "politics" must stay out it, so the door is still open for "regulations" that will allow — and fund with tax dollars — cloning!

Richard Reeves once said that "politics is like sex in a hula-hoop." Julian Bond said:

"The real power is to make people say yes to you when they want to say no."

That's the very definition of a cult leader. I think that the majority of Americans still want to say NO on Nazi-style "medical research," but they're afraid to say anything right now.

After all, we have a "historic" President, and they don't want to stand out from the crowd, er — cult. It's going to take a combination of disgusted Traditionalists — both Democrats and "republicans" alike — to plug the hole in the dike. And we shall see what we shall see, eh? Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of soup. What's YOUR PRICE? LIBERTY — or a government "bail-out"? OR BOTH?

Mick Jagger once said, "Politics, like the legal system, is dominated by old men. Old men who are also bugged by religion."

Well, Mick, I may be an "OLD" man, but I'm not bugged by religion; it's history that bugs me, and I for one am not afraid to say NO to the "young" men who think that they're running this country!

Marlon Brando said, "Acting is as old as mankind . . Politicians are actors of the first order."

"Seen one president, you've seen them all," said Henry Kissinger.

"Don't be humble, you're not that great," said Golda Meir.

"We agree completely on everything, including the fact that we don't see eye to eye."
— Henry Kissinger and Golda Meir

So why are people afraid to speak up if they don't see eye-to-eye with the President? He's just a President, not a king, as someone else said.

P.S. The executive order of embryonic stem-cell research was going to be my "crazy headline of the week." That was creepy enough, but some other things happened, perhaps not unrelated to the value of human life in our culture.

On Sunday a Baptist minister was shot to death in mid-sermon. On Tuesday, nine people were murdered in Alabama and Florida. The next day, German time, another mass murderer killed at least 15 people in a high school.

A lot of people are in mourning, but this is really creepy:

Today March 12th is the fourth anniversary of the day I lost eight close friends in a church shooting in Brookfield, Wisconsin. They had all been in my home, and I had been in their homes, including that of the shooter. I was on my way there that day, but had to turn around and go back home because of ice that had built up inside the fenders of my car. I was spared to "write another day" because we didn't have global warming in 2005.

By the way, it's ten degrees today and the wind-chill factor is below zero. But anyway, Terry was a friend of mine. I knew him about as well as most people could know him. We had traveled to church festivals together and had shared hotel accommodations. But no one really knew Terry, as is probably the case with this week's shooters. The fact that there were not one but two mass murder cases this week is demonically ironic.

In this age of hope and "change," we have more to fear than fear itself. There will be calls for "changes" to our Second Amendment, without a Constitutional amendment, of course.

Guns don't kill, and as they say, "Bullets kill." There's a target on your gun and on your bullets, with demonic "people" as the excuse. As Henry Kissinger once said:

"The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer."

President Obama swore an oath (twice) to protect the Constitution. The question is not which one was the real oath, but will he?

Idi Amin once said, "Sometimes people mistake the way I talk for what I am thinking."

There are some good things the President COULD do in the days ahead, but what WILL he do? We will find out soon enough what he's really thinking. And so will Rush Limbaugh.

Nikita Khrushchev said, "When you pledge, don't hedge." He pledged that capitalism would be buried. He didn't hedge. It just took a little longer than he anticipated. The Obama Administration has pledged to hush Rush, but it will take a little longer. In the meantime, we ALL need to say what we're really thinking!


My heart goes out to all the people who lost loved ones this week, and in 2005. I don't know how many people that is, but I knew Randy, James, Harold, Richard, Gloria, Bart, Jerry, and Terry. And all their families. Jerry saved a lady by covering her with his body. How many people will you save by making the best possible use of your LIFE?

As the old English preacher, Sydney Smith said:

"Death must be distinguished from dying, with which it is often confused." Amen.

By the way, the world's largest building is being planned for Moscow (talk about towers of Babel, and ironies!).

["Tower of Babel" planned for Moscow]

The building's spiraling form emerges majestically from a newly landscaped park, rising in converse directions to form a diagonal grid. This distinctive geometry extends throughout the project into the park. The result is that the scheme is seamlessly integrated into a new park landscape, which provides a range of activities throughout the year, including cross country skiing and ice skating in the winter.
