The nation's top intelligence officer spoke the blasphemous truth today, i.e., he said that Russia and China pose "the greatest mortal threat" to the U.S. Now there's talk that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper may be fired:
Seriously....could the American people be any more out of touch with reality?
The "Old Enemy" feigns the demise of "Communism" (especially Russia), bends over backwards to befriend the West, usurps Western technology and the "means of production" (especially China), and all the while continues to modernize and build-up a strategic nuclear arsenal geared to take down America and our allies in an hour's time....and somehow our political representatives are perplexed by the direct, spot-on comments by our national intelligence director that Russia and China pose "the greatest mortal threat"?
This truth is so politically incorrect that the top intelligence official publicly stating the obvious risks being fired for such heresy?!
What the heck??!!
Of course, the reality, and the most unacceptable blasphemy, is that the ultimate source of our own undoing has been ourselves.
The American people, and Western Civilization in general, did not 'love the truth', opted for 'having pleasure in unrighteousness' and gladly gave into the 'strong delusion' presented by the 'Old Enemy' such that the means of our defeat was made possible.
"The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12]
For the last 20 years I tried to go against the collective insanity unfolding around me and have pretty much ruined my life in so doing. I just hope God really does somehow plan to save humanity, because I sure can't seem to do the job.
Meanwhile, today the DJIA reversed below the psychologically important 12K mark:
Hey....but Helicopter Ben will undoubtedly print some more money to try and keep our popular delusions afloat! After all, all that matters is the Golden Calf of Mammon, right?! That's what will 'save us', right??!!!
Unending, unrepentant selfishness and sin is ultimately efficient means to self-destruction.
Reality may be about to hit home.
Being an American, I despise this story as much as anyone else, but I'm not going to fool myself. I just wish someone somewhere along the way had bothered to lift a finger to help me such that our catastrophic fate might have been averted. Unfortunately, however, no one has been interested. Everyone has had 'other priorities'. Thus, we are doomed as prophesized, save for God's grace.
God have mercy on us.
