“I cannot for the life of me see how an American president can launch a serious military action without a full and formal national address in which he explains to the American people why he is doing what he is doing, why it is right, and why it is very much in the national interest. He referred to his aims in parts of speeches and appearances when he was in South America, but now he’s home. More is needed, more is warranted, and more is deserved. He has to sit at that big desk and explain his thinking, put forward the facts as he sees them, and try to garner public support. He has to make a case for his own actions. It’s what presidents do! And this is particularly important now, because there are reasons to fear the current involvement will either escalate and produce a lengthy conflict or collapse and produce humiliation. Without a formal and extended statement, the air of weirdness, uncertainty and confusion that surrounds this endeavor will only deepen. … America has been though a difficult 10 years, and the burden of proof on the need for U.S. action would be with those who supported intervention. Chief among them, of course, is the president, who made the decision as commander in chief. He needs to sit down and tell the American people how this thing can possibly turn out well. He needs to tell them why it isn’t mad.”
This comment by columnist Peggy Noonan is very telling. She asks a critical question. “Is the president of these United States insane?” The answer to this inquiry is both “yes” and “no” depending upon the definition used for insanity and madness. Clinically, Obama is not insane. He is, however, bent upon a wicked anti-American and anti-Christian agenda, to be sure, but he is not technically insane. His agenda is calculated and devious, which makes him ingeniously devilish. What Obama desires, and is feverously working toward, is to reconstruct America’s foundation by destroying America’s Christian foundation. This includes the destruction of America’s currency by evil inflationary tactics, which is a blatant violation of the 8th Commandment. These sinister policies infect every aspect of American life and are not compartmentalized to the economic sphere alone.
While Obama may not be clinically insane, Biblically speaking he is a madman and is being used by God as a judgment against both America and the world for their repudiation of God and His Laws.
1 Sa 8:10-17, “And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. And he said, ‘This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear [plow] his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your olive yards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.’”
1 Sa 8:19-20, “Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, ‘Nay; but we will have a king over us; That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.’”
This response testifies of the people’s desire to live a life of irresponsibility. They thought that if they could be cared for by becoming salves of a “nanny state” they could legally shirk any personal responsibility to care for themselves.
1 Sa 8:18, “And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.”
The problem was not with Saul, but with the lusts of the masses for a human, caretaker king.
According to these passages of Scripture, Obama is not the root of the problem. The problem is with the people of the nation. The real culprits of political and moral abominations are the people who have allowed such a madman to fill the seat of power by their vote of support. Whenever the people lust after unrighteousness in rejection of God’s call to responsibility, God feeds them with their lust. God’s judgment is upon the masses of the world for their rejection of the God of Scripture.
There is no immediate “silver bullet” reparation to this dilemma. The process of reparation will be slow and painful, and it will take diligence. More importantly, reparations must come from the bottom up. Government cannot fix any problem. It can easily initiate problems, even exacerbate problems, but it cannot fix them. Its purpose and role are limited; and until the masses understand this there can be no reparations—only plunder, slavery and sorrow.
Following these tactics will set the stage and lay the foundation for real Biblical change whereby one day our children’s children may see the knowledge of the Lord cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. But if these things are ignored, our heirs, under extreme slavery and apostasy, will hang their harps upon the willow, unable to sing the songs of Zion.
