Even though there is a lot going on in the news, my monthly perspectives will have to be fairly short this month. I have way too many irons on the fire right now. I am getting a high-speed satellite system installed this morning for Internet and then I will have to set up a router and wireless network for our various computers.
I also just got a laptop, so I will be spending a lot of time getting the software I need downloaded and working on that computer. In addition, we are hoping to get rid of the two land line phones we now have. One line is not working at all and the other is plagued with a hum. With cell phones, we only get two bars when on the roof, so for an all cell home phone system to become feasible, I have to install a directional antenna on the roof and another antenna in the house and then amplify the incoming and outgoing signals.
I also purchased a modern Orca TV antenna. It came in yesterday. I will have to install that on the roof or in the attic so we can receive local TV channels. We have not had any TV since we moved here a few years ago.
In addition to that, the remodeling on the house just got done this week but the contents of the house is in quite a mess, it will take weeks to get this place straightened out, cleaned up, and more livable. There are others things that have to be taken care of as well within days. Anyway, you get the picture, I do not have a lot of time to spend on this post and responses on this post might be slow to be posted or answered.
It looks like Israel will have to clean up some areas that are now rocketing them. I do not think Egypt or any other Arab nation is ready for any major war with Israel right now. So, contrary to those hyper ventilating every time there is any military action in the Middle East. This is not the start of the Psalm 83 war.
If Iran and Hezbollah get involved, Iran will probably lose their nuclear capability and it will be the end of Hezbollah as a military force but I really do not think they will get militarily involved. Even so, the rhetoric could be fierce and the pressure on Israel substantial.
There obviously is more going on with the former CIA Director, David Petraeus scandal, and what actually happened in Libya than we are being told. Petraeus testified to Congress yesterday that he knew it was a terrorist attack from the start but his references to terrorism were edited out and all references to Al Qaeda were removed from the original CIA memo. Now who would do such a thing to a document that went to top people in the Obama administration?
We might wonder if there is any connection to this and the release of information about his extra marital sex affair and his immediate resignation? I have no inside information, so your conjecture is as good as mine. I doubt if the truth will come out because there is just no way to get truth out of this Obama administration.
If the truth ever does come out, it will come out from a credible John Dean type source that would be seeking to save his butt from prison by spilling the beans on higher-ups to Congress. However, if there is such a person, he probably is already blackmailed and if he gets off the leash, he may wake up dead after a fatal accident or some unexplained suicide. The convenient strange deaths during the Bill Clinton era come to mind.
Even if the truth becomes known, and it leads to illegal activity by Obama, there is no way that the Senate would remove him from office. Even the Republicans fear the race riots. Racists helped elect racists to rule, and the consequences of even trying to remove the Racist-in-Chief will certainly bring race riots.
I believe the election was stolen. Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania had enough voters that were not qualified to vote and there was enough other election fraud to change the outcome in these states. This is something that I cannot prove because nobody will ever know what went on in all the Democratic Party thug controlled big city wards. I am sorry to say that there is much election fraud going on in the major cities of our nation and high-ranking people are in office because of this rampant voter fraud.
I think the only way a Republican could get a fair election in some parts of this country is for the people to demand proof of citizenship, use paper ballets, and have impartial people count those ballets. Nevertheless, even though such impartial people exist, they would never be acceptable to the dishonest people controlling these fraud wards. Neither will any of these things be attempted. The local political machines in the big cities do all they illegally can do to control the outcome of elections. So much for democracy in America!
The secession petitions are all over the news. The MSM likes to play it up because they believe that there are millions of whacked out right wing-nuts and this proves it. I think putting your name on a petition to secede and sending it to the White House can be equated to voluntarily starting a NSA brochure on yourself. I am not saying that they will do that, but where do you think those names will end up? Homeland Security could end up with them and NSA and I would not even rule out the IRS.
Asking Obama for permission to secede is stupid anyway. The Executive Branch does not have the constitutional power to grant anyone secession. If you had every person in the state on your petition, it would not change a thing. If there is any secession, you will have to convince the government in your state to pull out of the Union. Even if they wanted to secede, the Federal government is not going to allow it. That is what the Civil War was really about and the Union won. States cannot secede and if they do, they will bring the might of the union federal forces on their head.
One way there could be secession is if the whole federal system collapses so that each individual state has to take matters into their own hands. The other ways it could happen is if the government starts rounding up guns in the heartland and/or starts rounding up Bible believing Christians. Then I can see their unconstitutional actions start an insurrection or civil war against the federal government that might only be resolved by the overthrow of the federal government or some brokered secession.
Further down the line, I also can see it happening when the Southwest Region of states gets a strong Latino majority and the people in those states overwhelming demand to depart from the Anglo dominated Union.
Meanwhile, don’t put your name on lists that are anti the established federal government. You are just making it too easy for them to categorize people who do not go along with their agenda. There is a very good chance that they will put the names on these petitions on a government watch list and on a round-up list during any time of martial law or insurrection.
Some in my Church may be sorry to hear this, and a few others may rejoice. I have decided that we will soon be attending elsewhere. It will happen around the end of the year. The church we now go to is 30 minutes away, 40 when the creek is running (about 4 months of the year). We have been at that church for about three years but it is time to go.
I believe troubled times are going to hit this nation hard and it is now time to network with neighbors that are local Christian people. We have a pretty good Church only 5 miles from where I live. We will miss the choir at the old church and many of the people but the teaching where we will be attending will probably be more in-depth and have less expressions about whatever is irking the pastor that week.
The church we now attend is a First Baptist in a small town but I bet half of the people in my church voted for Obama last week. In this area, pastors, even in rural towns, dare not say anything about Obama or the Democrat platform or they could lose whole extended families from their congregation and split the church. We do not live in town, we live in the deep woods and the churches out where we live are much more conservative than the often liberal government dependents and family tradition democrats that tend to dwell in the small towns of the Ozarks.
Of course nothing is set in concrete. I will not know if that church five miles away is suitable for us until I attend for a while. If not, there are other candidates not much further away.
It is now time to get to know your nearby conservative Christian neighbors. Things are not going to get better in this nation, in fact, it is all downhill from here. Anyway, that is what I see coming, and I am going to practice what I am preaching. It is time to get prepared for the storms that are coming on America. But do keep in mind, that I just analyze world and church trends, I do not claim to be a prophet.
Europe is officially back in recession and the economic situation is causing a lot of social unrest there. The governments will cave and most of the austerity measures and budget cuts will not be made to solve their debt problems. With what is happening in Europe, and with the effects of the East Coast storms, and with the effects of the Obama policies, I think talk about any imminent recovery is pretty absurd.
