America’s Onrushing Collapse!

Time for an inconvenient truth about four interdependent subjects. There is a great deal of misinformation (lies) circulating about these topics that has been masquerading as truth. Our nation has been under attack in these areas for many years from internal and external forces. Their endgame is to see America destroyed.
We must wake up. We are being horribly misled. If we allow it to continue unchallenged, then we will deserve our onrushing collapse. We must put strong, intelligent, conservative patriots into elected office at all levels. By “conservative patriots” I mean citizens who embrace our strong foundation on faith and freedom and who deeply understand what our Founding Fathers gave us – and what it cost each of them personally. Those we elect must be about the business of debunking and rolling back all policies and legislation that support the myths concocted to support these four areas.
One powerful aspect of the strength of our founders is that they all had a strong faith in our loving God; all were Christians except two men who were deists. All were men of means and education who decided to end the tyranny of England over the colonies. They trusted in God for all they did in their lives as well as in their assemblies to give birth to America.
What I say here will be attacked by the radical Left. They will attack any person who would dare speak or write against their ideas or actions. My oath as a Commissioned Officer in the U.S. Army (now a retired Colonel) contained the words, “to defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I have done my bit overseas, but now our enemies, are mostly inside America; they are indeed domestic, though often funded by those outside America. Fight on we will – all of us who love America.
The Democratic Party has gone rogue. It has become radical. They are against America as she was founded. The Biden administration has shown us what they are after – the collapse of America as we have known her. The previous Republican administration recreated an America that most of us have not seen for decades. What they did was great. It promised still more in its next four years, but somehow the Republicans lost the election and that ended our recovery. In the nine months since the radicals, nominally led by President Biden, took office they have rolled back the Republican achievements to the destructive situations of our nation under Obama.
The radicals have made their divide and conquer tactics even more strident and hateful, pitting whites against blacks, lawlessness against law and order, haves against the have-nots, etc. Manufactured racism and anti-Christian bias are favorites of the radicals. This cannot be allowed to continue. America will not survive their destructive plans.
Global Climate Change
The first thing that needs to be said loud and clear about this issue is that God is in control of this situation, not man. For man to think he can upset the plans of God is hubris of an order rarely seen. There are macro-cycles of some 1320 years, as some scientists calculate, and there are smaller cycles of, say, 178 years, as other scientists claim. There is the sunspot cycle of some 11 years, which is most probably the prime measure of what causes our warming and cooling cycles. Past warming cycles have been an economic boon to the world, leading to some of the more “frozen-in” seaside communities being opened to hugely profitable shipping trade.
To say that we humans must severely limit our production of CO2 is a knee-jerk reaction to a potentially good outcome. It ignores the fact that CO2 is used by plants in the vital process called photosynthesis, to produce the O2 that all humans, animals, and fish need to live. Blindly calling for the reduction of CO2 gas without knowing how much and how is simply irresponsible. It is a life-threatening, foolish idea. The carbon-credit and trading idea is an outgrowth of this absurd idea. It all should be scrapped, or it will be used by opportunists in government and others to enrich themselves.
Electrical Energy Production
Now let’s talk about an all-electric civilization based on not burning hydrocarbon fuels (which produces CO2) to produce steam to turn generators to make electricity. If that were an intelligent way forward for the world then nuclear power plants would/should be our obvious solid first choice, with hydro-electric a close second choice. Why? Because they are reliable year-round at producing the enormous amount of electric energy this nation needs. Neither do they produce CO2 gas by burning hydrocarbons. That leaves the hydrocarbon supply fully available to efficiently fuel air, land, and sea vehicles (though many sea vehicles could, and some do, use nuclear propulsion systems).
Wind and solar-generated power, expensive and unreliable in the extreme, can never produce the base load necessary to support our economy. No power grid system for a nation should ever be designed to use wind and solar-generated electric power as the main or even as supplemental power; its two major faults (cost and unreliability) render it an outrageous bet. The recent power debacle in the Commonwealth of Texas during last winter’s deep freeze adequately underscores this point.
There is a second major point about this all-electric concept that should be unraveled. In this case, it is that all vehicles must be electric – and that all hydrocarbon burning vehicles must be phased out. It is lunacy from several points of view. The first and most obvious is that electric cars, by their severe mileage limitations between charges and their time to recharge, renders them to be only good local-travel vehicles. There is the huge cost of replacing the large battery packs when the original pack wears out, something that the early adopters of electric cars are just now beginning to discover.
Then to enlarge our view of this issue, there is the enormous cost to procure, mine, and refine the several essential rare-earth minerals – and then to manufacture the numbers of large battery packs for these vehicles. But the largest sleeper in all this is the truly huge ramp-up of the electric generation capacity of the nation to manufacture and service these vehicles. Of course, there will need to be a massive effort to manufacture and implant recharging stations across the US.
Uncontrolled Illegal Immigration at our Southern Border
Another tactic the radicals are using to cause America’s collapse is to stop controlling illegal immigration at the southern border allowing anyone to come to America. Here are a few quotes from a recent address by Mark Morgan, former Acting Commissioner, US Customs & Border Protection Agency:
“[The] Biden administration is making it easier for drugs to pour into the US, for human trafficking to expand, and for criminal aliens to infiltrate our society. Illegal Immigration, border security, erosion of the rule of law, and loss of our nation’s sovereignty are interconnected. Border Security is a significant part of National Security.”
What criminals, enemies, and diseases, are coming in is unknown because information control of such large numbers is all but impossible. These people are given free access to all the things that we must pay for. Many do not care to assimilate into our culture but instead establish their own communities where most of us would not be welcome. Its net effect is a huge drain on our economy and our institutions.
Spending at the Federal Level
The wildly out-of-control spending at the federal level is becoming dangerous not only to America but to many other nations in the world because so many of their economies depend on the full faith and credit of the US Dollar. The federal government routinely spends many more dollars for every dollar it takes in. No economy can sustain such outrageous spending for long. We have now arrived at the point that we must borrow money to pay the huge interest (about $300B annually) on our enormous national debt (about $28T).
In effect, the US is technically bankrupt. What the radicals in Washington, DC now want to do is the dream of every redistributor of wealth. In their so-called “infrastructure bill” they plan to give more money away to millions of our citizens instead of encouraging them to go back to work. That plan, by itself, will bring America to her knees because it will use money we don’t have to pay to people who don’t or won’t work, which means they aren’t paying taxes. It’s a double whammy and can be viewed as the final nail in our national economy’s coffin.
Why is a certain element of our nation constantly pushing for these things? They have an objective. As stated at the outset, their objective is to bring America down – to transform her into a Communist State. Who are the “they”? They are foreign and domestic radicals who have made it clear they want to rule the world and only America stands in the way. So, they have decided to continue to press these four issues (and several other evils) hard upon the American economy and people. They want us to remain blind to their objective, or silent about our objections.
I think you will find this quote from Dr. Adrian Rogers of some interest.
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
At the outset of this essay, I mentioned the strong faith and freedom foundation of the Founding Fathers in their determination to end the tyranny of King George. What you should know is the contract (the Mayflower Compact) between God and the men and women who came over from England and Holland in 1620 to establish a new nation, stated their purpose, in part, as “for the glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith.” The people of this new land – America – worshipped and obeyed God, and their fortunes and goodly progress were assured, even though they were beset by many trials and tribulations.
For about 340 years we prospered. Then in 1962, our Congress took prayer out of our schools; in 1973 our Supreme Court decreed it was okay to murder babies in the womb (61M so far), and in 2015 our Supreme Court decreed that same-sex marriage was okay.
By the increasing situations and disasters throughout America, it should be clear God in His righteous anger has removed His hand of blessing and protection.
In the mid-1990s, FEMA did a study of natural disasters and concluded that in the previous ten-year period, there had been more disasters than had occurred total in the previous two hundred years of our nation’s history. God is obviously angry with us. Are we willfully blind to what is going on? When the people of ancient Israel endured such terrible things from their leaders, they eventually said “Enough.” They pleaded with God to forgive them, to give them a new and righteous king, and to heal their land. And He did – until they became disobedient again.
God gave the prophet Jeremiah the following words to give to Judah and Jerusalem:
If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed, but then that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned. And if I announce that I will plant and build up a certain nation or kingdom, but then that nation turns to evil and refuses to obey me, I will not bless it as I said I would. Therefore, Jeremiah, go and warn all Judah and Jerusalem. Say to them, “This is what the Lord says: I am planning disaster for you instead of good. So turn from your evil ways, and do what is right” (Jeremiah 18:7-11).
We are exactly there ourselves. Will we humble ourselves and turn back to God? Will we ask Him to forgive us? Will we ask Him to give us godly men and women in elected and appointed office at all levels of government? Will we ask Him to purge evil activities from our land? Will we ask Him to heal our land and set us on the path to righteousness?
Will you tell your elected and appointed officials that you are praying for them to do the right thing from now on? Forward this article to them. Ask them to reverse all the damaging and sinful (yes, sinful – an old but accurate word) policies and legislation they have passed. Most importantly, ask them to stop spending more money than comes into the treasury – and then to begin to severely decrease all types of government welfare with the objective of eliminating it. And tell them that the term “entitlements” to describe give-away programs is a lie and corruption of language. The only two Federal government programs that could be termed “entitlements” are Social Security and Medicare. Payments from those programs were originally paid for by the person receiving the payment. In short, they are entitled to the payments by having established their accounts and having paid into them. And tell them you expect them to rebuild our National Defense Forces to be invincible.
God is the only one who can turn all this around. And He wants to because He loves us all. He shows His love for us by the mere fact that He created each of us – and more than that He went the last mile to prove His love by having His Son, the Lord Jesus, die on a cross to pay the penalty for all our sins. So pray for God to forgive us for the mess we have made in America. Remember the last line of the prayer Jesus taught His disciples, the one we all know as “The Lord’s Prayer.” That line is what we desperately need to pray often here in America now:
“…but deliver us from evil.”
In a reclaimed faith in our one God, the American people, with one voice, must urgently and humbly ask God to deliver us from evil and heal our land!
