Young People No Longer Support Obamacare
Its losing support as well amongst even its staunchest supporters in the House and Senate. While publicly they are all still behind the bill, in Private Strategy sessions, they are very disgruntled. Why? They are catching hell on the phone-lines from their constituents. Before it was just the GOP who was catching it, now its the Democrats... with elections 11 months away. Some have asked the President privately to consider repealing Obamacare, others want some serious revisions. The President is as stubborn as ever and no matter how many people this bill is starting to hurt he is going to keep pushing it. Businesses many of whom Obamacare is just going to put them out of are not happy, people who once had good plans now have 'new plans' that cost more and don't have the coverage they were promised they could keep, and now young people are all going to vote their pockets in 2014. No dear readers, spin it anyway you want, this is bill is a Turkey anyway you slice it, though it does have some very positive aspects to it that I and most Americans would hate to see dismantled (like not being denied insurance and not able to be dropped from coverage if one gets sick). The President should be applauded and thanked profusely for correcting these longstanding wrongs.
My point? Let me say this as carefully as I can. There is going to be some backlash and there is only one group of Americans who still rock solidly support the President and Obamacare and that group's unwillingness to come to terms and put some pressure on the President to make some real change is going to put the Democrats in a real pickle. Why? Because one group is likely to bolt the party in 2014 in order to ensure change in a bill that they no longer can support, though many (perhaps most) once did. When you hit 'Molly Middclass' in her suburban pocketbook and health care coverage, she is going to react at the polls, guaranteed. How do I know? Again, the phone lines to Democratic Congressman are red hot with DEMOCRATS pissed off at Obamacare. So pay attention, the Democrats are scrambling behind the scenes and the President (despite his cool exterior) is in a political panic, too. He can read the polls as well as the next guy. If the Democratic leaders cannot get the President to start making some real changes, the GOP will make theirs when (not if) they come to power. The key here is that the political forces who have up to now pretty much blindly supported the President must also demand some change so that the Molly Middle Class's of the world don't bolt the party next November and empower the GOP to make those changes when elections come around in 2014 and 2016. Here is how this could very well play out.
What will a GOP House with a super-majority look like and with them in control of the Senate as well? This is not rocket science, these are things many in the GOP openly have been calling for.
One group of Americans, I can assure you is going to be targeted for the failures of this administration, when 2017 rolls around. It will probably start in the blogosphere in the early 2016 cycle, this future message casting blame won't need to resonate with all or even most Americans, just about 10-15% of likely Democrats who are sick of what the last 8 years brought and will say 'never again'. This group will be seen as the reason they are paying so much for Healthcare and now millions must pay a tax for not having it and still not get any care. The money is already strating to flow to make sure they get much of the blame that many will feel is due them. This does not mean those efforts will succeed, only that the money is heading in that direction and this group of Americans is utterly clueless as to the hole they are digging for themselves with bobblehead support for the President's every policy, no matter how hurtful it is to the nation and even to themselves.
- You can start to see serious efforts to roll back Affirmative Action, they will do what they can via the Supreme Court, but use the legislative Branch when needed. The will succeed on many, if not all levels.
- Other programs that were designed to assist Black America will go by the wayside as America start to look for groups to the blame for his policies and the effects they will have over the next 3 years and 2 months. Trust me, the money is already flowing to make this happen.
- Race discrimination laws in the workplace and in education will be weakened and where possible removed to allow for more vigorous forms of overt racism to take root.
- You can start to see the Cable industry really being to raise rates as they gut the power of the FCC, something large Telcom Conglomerates have been working very, very hard to do.
- You can start to see more major environmental mishaps as they push for more de-regulation of the oil (fracking) industry here in the US.
- You can surely expect many more wars and more unilateral invasions which like the last two, will end in failure and campaign donors rolling in hundreds of billions of dollars from fraud and crooked contracts.
- You will see serious, theough probably effective efforts to destroy Federal programs like Food Stamps, Medicaid (a key part of Obamacare), and other costly Federal programs that are not designed to enrich GOP corporate donors. All of this will be done under the umbrella of 'deficit reduction'.
- You can see them do all in their power to destroy the New Consumer Protection bureau, that protects ordiary people from teh rapacity of Wall Street banks.
- Deregulation will create huge new monopolies and the loopholes in federal anti-trust laws will be so big you will be able to drive a truck through them. They will clamor for the power to use those monopolies to victimize, Price gouge and imperil the safety Americans in every market they are erected for the profit of the 1%.
...just for starters.
The sad part is that for the most part is that those calls in the internet hinterlands will resonate in more and more places in the body politic as Obamacare takes root and the negative effect of the Presidents economic polices continue to hit more and more Americans; giving these groups the 'moral' impetus to roll back the many gains the nation has had since the 1950's.
Internet browsers have come a long way. Both in speed and in security. Lots of new features in them that are mostly good, but can also be very bad.
Lots of stuff goes into your browser that are not found on any security site to help track your online activity for many reasons, many never stated anywhere online and if they ever were, a Federal gag order would be put on any such site.
Now I am not here to bash Firefox, I still use it (mostly). All major browsers are suspect today (Chrome/Opera/Firefox) if it was developed in the post 911 environment. There are some much smaller names out there that most of you never heard of, a few can actually be trusted but they have very limited functionality. One of the ways you are tracked is by your footprint. You can read more about that here and I do ask you to click on over and read it.
But as we have read in the news, it isn't just advertisers that are the problem. It's also the NSA whose actions (while not revealed yet to the public) have almost certainly been illegal. The good news is that they are about to get their knuckles wrapped and some of their survellance authorities are probably going to be taken from them. Don't thank the Intelligence Oversight Committee's yet, Thank Holder, who I suspect is going to significantly 'raise the bar' in future requests for US Citizens' information by the NSA.
Now I run a site. I know and 'get' the need for revenue. I get it, I really do. I am certainly not against folks trying to turn a buck on their sites, small or large; relatively tiny religious sites like this one or large corporate sites like Bloomberg or Amazon. They run their sites, own and operate it and running any site (like this one) costs money.
The issue here is surveillance, weather it be corporate or government. Those individuals who choose not to be tracked should have a rock solid, legally enforceable way to make sure that happens. If they don't want their personal data sold on the data merchants auction block, they should have the option to make sure it does not happen. It seems very strange to me that data protection laws in Europe and in Canada are far superior than here in the US, who has allowed the tech industry to run wild in the streets harvesting data that oftentimes lands in the hands of cyber-thieves and Identity theft rings. I say, that those who like such tracking and know the risks, should be able to have that option to be tracked. Young people who want to be tracked in the Mall to get the latest sales and deals, they should have that option. Older folks like me who have seen how this kind of information can be abused and don't want my Identity stolen should be able to opt out. The Labor leader, the environmental activists or the blogger who has lots of enemies with deep pockets; these should be allowed to keep their information private and not have it sold to say, the Large multinational-company who is trying to silence him, geo-locating him to arrange an accident as happens more often than 99% of you know.
This is not unreasonable. But in order to have reasonable policies you have to have reasonable leaders and America seems to have a dearth of those. We have a do-nothing Congress and a President more and more Americans are starting to realize is not any better than Bush.
Both need to sit down and focus on issues that may not sit well with DC insiders and lobbyists but will with the people and this is true on a whole wide range of issues, not just privacy and surveillance.

Sabotage Blamed For Venezuela Blackout
The Blackout conveniently occurred while President Maduro was speaking to the nation. Sabotaging the electric grid was a key tactic used in the Revolution in Egypt.Feinstein Leads 'Chorus Of Fear' On Terrorism
Who has always had a this small socialist nation in its target sites and proably had Chavez done away with? I don't think the answer is to hard to come by. There are lots of interests inside Venezuela who don't like the changes inside the nation that have largely benefited the underclass. Those are the ones with money who can be encouraged to create the situation that leads to a coup... like they had once before.
Who has a long history of crushing people's movements and enthroning corporations, especially oil corporations in Latin America, bringing in death squads and assassination teams?
Who else used these tactics? What spirit is that kind of evil s-#t coming from, one of whose leaders just died quite recently? The Nazi's did it based on race, the new Nazi's do it based on economic status, economic exploitation and resource extraction and they will blow your brains out with the same skill as the SS.
Brothers, I don't know who is behind this particular Power outage, but it is not hard to figure out who it was if indeed it was sabotage and if it wasn't today, it probably will be tomorrow.
How would the mechanics of this work, if (I want to stress that word... IF) indeed this was part of a long range destabilization plan? Big Oil man goes to Western Leader and says, "here is some money, we want that oil in Venezuela, we don't care how you get it for us, but we want it. Let us get the oil and we will give you some more money." Western leader says... "OK, here is my personal account number, make sure its 'clean' before it hits the account." A Top secret destabilization plan is written and then...
Suddenly the leader faces a coup, later dies suspiciously and then the lights go out in most of his nation, probably to be followed by oil refinery explosions, protests, more power outages, until the oil rights are transferred then suddenly as if by magic, there are no more destabilization efforts.
I wonder if her comments were translated from Mandarin or Cantonese into english.

Economic Misdirection: How Soon We Forget
This is mostly written for investors, but it is quite good in that we can see the same irrational exuberance out there that we saw just before the crisis of 2008. Doug Noland at the Prudent bear has similar insights, though from the roaring 20's.

70% Of Japan Contaminated With Radiation
Many nations are very upset with Japan and its utter incompetence in dealing with this crisis. It is deeply effecting fishing and other activities all through Asia.
Radiation: The Watchword for the Decade.
Then there is the catastrophe at Fukushima which our media as well as International organizations have done their utmost to downplay is still a major global environmental catastrophe. Radiation brothers, that is going to be the watchword that is left out of the tragedies that are and will unfold in the pacific ocean. Today, much of the fish caught in the Ocean is emitting radiation that is many times those of established safety levels. We are seeing all manner of troubles in the environment and with wildlife and while officials are most careful not to use the word 'radiation' and 'Fukushima' in their news stories and even government sponsored reports, the reality is pretty plain, there are not many things that can cause lesions and loss of hair in an area that is being bombarded with radioactivity. The radiation has indeed finally arrived in Alaska and there is concern about what it is going to mean for the wildlife and environment. But the truth is the radiation has been present for some time and has been showing up in wildlife. In fact we have seen the near total collapse of the sardine population along the Canadian coast. Yet hardly anyone will mention the words 'radiation' and 'Fukushima' in the news reporting on these issues, the words have been 'blacked out' when describing the effects. Instead, the propaganda model (in order to downplay the scope and scale of this disaster) compels the use of the words and phrases, 'mystery' and 'unknown' and 'need further study' that never see the light of day. It's a lie, there is no mystery, in most of these instances the scientists know exactly what is killing the wildlife but federal research dollars as well as Grants from the US power generation industry (like Nuclear Power) force the use of these ludicrous propaganda assertions to protect the Industry. The Number of Birth defects why has reporting stopped?
“There is no discernible end in sight to this tragedy, radiation will continue to seep into the Pacific Ocean for decades.” - Eurasia Review
The main concern is that a major meltdown could be now underway at one of the reactors. It appears that the Russians have seconded the opinion of others here in the US that we could be in a major catastrophe in the next couple of months... in the dead of winter. No, you are not going to hear this as there is a massive cover-up in Japan, but the signs were evident over the weekend just before the US Thanksgiving Holiday. Be assured that this administration will assist Japan in any coverup they may institute just as they have been doing since the crisis started.
The effects on
the Ocean are going to be far reaching and significant,
perhaps even devastating.
Hard info is not easy to come by as I have been reliably
informed there is a government and industry-wide
campaign to downplay the significance of the problem.
The President is getting briefed that the situation is
hundreds of times worse than Chernobyl,
but you will never hear that on any MSM, US or UN site
or agency. Private and classified reports have been
made, the truth of the situation is not to be told to
the world. This is very important because the Sea food
out of the Pacific in some places is not
safe to eat. It emits radiation many times in
excess of the safety limit. Yet that stuff is now
sitting on your shelves at your grocery stores and in
your fish departments at your grocery stores. Everyone
who is responsible for checking it has been told to look
the other way and shut their mouths.
Who is going to get rich in 10 or so years when tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of people develop internal lesions or cancer due to the radiation, they have been ingesting over the years and head over the Hospital?
Let me break this down to you in terms of things you are not hearing. The radiation levels are so alarming that one western nation, officially requested that the US intervene militarily to go in and compel the Japanese to fix the problems they are wholly unwilling to repair. The Chinese, up until the time that a decision was made to remove the fuel rods, were considering armed intervention – it is having a major effect on the Oceans. Don't bother to read anything the WHO is putting out, they appear to have been 'captured' by the Nuclear Power industry and the US. Their reporting has been quite suspect and questioned by a large number of scientists for reasons stated in the link.
In short, this is a global cover-up and only the President of the US has the power to orchestrate something this far reaching. Why? Who knows but I do consider that guy who owns GE has a lot of influence in the nation. GE has been a strong supporter of Obama, GE designed the Nuke Reactors at Fukushima... the same kind used in the US. How anxious do you think folks will be to have a Fukushima in the US? Telling people about just how bad this crisis is would only give strong impetus to stop building Nuke plants, which runs counter to Obama's Nuclear power agenda. Well, in order to quell public protest and give an air of transparency GE has fessed up about who designed the Fukushima plant (GE owns NBC).
Thus, you see why the President would want to hide the scope of the disaster from ordinary people. Who cares about the Ocean when there is money to be made and donations to be received? Who cares about the cancer rates of Americans who live on the West Coast or who eat Pacific sea food regularly? Who is likely to profit (LOTS OF MONEY) from soaring cancer rates? You figure it out... the same guys who designed the Fukushima reactor.
You can make a lot of money depopulating the planet, both from the cause and cure end of the cycle. People have been so dumbed down today, they will clamor for the things that kill them.
and they will love him for it.”
describing the reign of the deranged Emperor Commodus,
(From the movie Gladiator)
Brothers and sisters I do want to exhort all of you to not be lukewarm believers. The lukewarm do not get into the kingdom. If you really want to get in, cease to be lukewarm. Cease to love the world and the things of the world and spend more time on God. Brothers, a great shock is going to come to Christians when so many are not ready and don't get in. Don't kid yourself, don't let the devil tell you it's OK to be lukewarm. The way to hellfire is via lukewarmness for there will be many a Churchgoer down there. . Christ wants people hot or cold, but not lukewarm (Rev 3:16). God is not going to care about how many services you attended, how many sermons you hear and how well respected you are in the Church, the question will be are you hot, cold or lukewarm for Christ?Gambia Cuts Ties With Taiwan
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Is getting into the kingdom your overriding and most important consideration in all you do? Don't lie to yourself, God knows your heart. Don't try and convince me, I can see how far too many Christians live in these evil times, their hearts, lives and calendars are OVERCHARGED with the cares of this life. Keep this in mind as well, Self deceit is a tool of the devil and it is one of the hardest for the victim to spot in themselves.
The real question is this one... where will you be when the Trumpet sounds? What is your REAL hope? Where is your REAL heart?
Some of the early African American hymns from the late 19th Century also draw heavily on this tradition. One such hymn is “Where Shall I Be When the First Trumpet Sounds?!” by Charles P. Jones (1865-1949). The hymn consists in applying this question, “Where shall I be” to a litany of biblically based descriptions about the Second Coming of Jesus, when He will judge the world by fire. Each verse is steeped in rich biblical tradition and provides us a series of good advent reflections, all rooted in the essential Advent focus of second coming of the Lord Jesus.... Where Will I Be When The First Trmpet SoundsWhere will you be and more importantly are you really just kidding yourself, oh, lukewarm believer? The devil is the best 'confirmer' of delusions (he put in your mind in the first place) there is, so make sure you are not living in one and KNOW where you will be when the Trumpet sounds!
China clearly is doing what it can to isolate Taiwan and bring her into the Communist fold despite protestations to the contrary.

_______LA Weighs Restrictions On Feeding Homeless
A coldness against the ever growing number of people who are losing jobs and homes seems to be enveloping the whole nation, not just LA. Little does America know that the course (printing money, not dealing in fiscal realities) is going to make the number of those without, greater than those with the longer we fail to fix out massive economic problems. Who is ultimately going to get the homes once owned by the now and soon to be Homeless which consist of millions of people who still have no clue that this is coming to their future? Brother this is not rocket science.Americans Don't Trust Each Other
All of this has the whiff of treason committed at the highest levels in governments (not just the US). Who is taking the money that makes sure no real jobs are being created so that Chinese investors are more and more, the only ones with the capital to buy American homes? Who is printing up money like there is no tomorrow to maintain a government that is broke just so Wall Street can wade in an artificial bubble created with printed up money and the President can pretend prosperity? Brothers, that economic policy is like tearing down your roof in the dead of winter to use as firewood to keep warm because he is too lazy to go out and chop up some wood. Only the heir to the throne of the kingdom of idiots would do something so well... idiotic and only the dumbed down citizens of such a kingdom would let him continue.
My point? You who show coldness today, may very well be soon out in the cold tomorrow; victims of the very laws you worked so hard to pass against others in need.
... like laws against feeding the homeless.
For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right.I posted todays top banner verse (Jer 11:11) as a result of this particular news story.
It's not too hard for non-Americans to see something wrong with the character of a large swath of Americans. What is surprising (and good as it is the first step in correcting it) about this is that more and more Americans are starting to see it too.
Some folks get on my case and say that I bash America too much. It isn't bashing 'America' so much as it is bashing what we are rapidly becoming. I am not going to use patriotism as a 'red white and blue' blindfold. The cowardice that waves a flag and refuses to correct errors is not Patriotism, rather its the very thing the enemies of the nation want to encourage, rotting the nation from within making sure the rot takes hold with no corrective effort. This kind of misue of patriotism is a pecurliar form of American leprosy and those 'Americans' (I use the word most reluctantly) who do that are part of a growing American disease rather than part of its cure. They are the rot in the American body politic, the 'useful idiots' our enemies use against us.
My point is that we as a nation can do better. We just have to decide to see a problem and correct it, not wave a flag and pretend there isn't one.
Things are not all bad out there and I certainly don't want to say there are not a lot of very honest people out there. There certainly are. But problem is the 'creeping crud' that no one wants to deal with.
The article (linked) is rather interesting on a number of levels as it deals with issues of class and race.
Do I trust my countrymen? For the most part, no. Trust with me is earned. I'm too old and have too many knife wounds in my back to put too much trust in my fellow Americans' word. I'll take their word on something when they show me their word is worth something... on an individual basis, regardless of race, creed, sexual orientation or even religious affiliation. Truth be told I have seen many lost souls with more character and honesty in their dealings than many of my so called 'Christian' brothers who say 'Praise the Lord' on Sunday and swindle and cheat their brothers on Monday.
But there are still many 'salt of the earth' kinds of folks out there. They may not be doing real well financially simply because they refused to sell out, but they are out there.
NSA: The Blackmail Files
Now brothers, read this. Get it in your heads. This is really what all of this surveillance is all about. Creating the capability to Blackmail those whom the state does not like (antiwar activists, peace activists, labor leaders, homeless advocates, Fracking Opponents, those who seek accountability on Wall Street, etc who are deemed 'radicalizers'.) . The same things we saw back during the Civil Rights era and the intelligence abuses that took place then. Brothers and sisters, this kind of the kind of spying that only America's enemies could and probably do use against our republic and I have long suspected that key folks at the NSA and on the Senate Intelligence oversight committee are actually Chinese foreign intelligence agents. It has long been known that the US has a very high level mole (at the top political level) and many efforts have been taken to ferret them out. They wouldn't want to stop these domestic intelligence programs, they want to expand them if America's enemies were getting the data.Mass. Drug Lab Tech Expected To Plead Guilty, 300+ Victims To Be Released
Who is fighting reform?
Have you ever wondered how many porn sites are actually secretly run by our own government and sustained with US tax dollars, Ostensibly to 'catch' pedophiles, but also, of course for blackmail purposes? I often have, peddling porn and then point the finger when someone watches it. It's like the opium peddler who sells his junk to 10 year olds condemning the 30 year old pot smoker.
Take a hint, the devils new name is the NSA and the President who let this go on during his watch and to this day is the main impediment to meaningful and publicly acknowledged reform.
Our investigation has confirmed that warning. We have seen segments of our Government, in their attitudes and action, adopt tactics unworthy of a democracy, and occasionally reminiscent of the tactics of totalitarian regimes. We have seen a consistent pattern in which
programs initiated with limited goals, such as preventing criminal violence or identifying foreign spies were expanded to what witnesses characterized as "vacuum cleaners”, sweeping up information about lawful activities of American citizens. The tendency of intelligence activities to expand beyond their initial scope is a theme which runs through every aspect of our investigative findings. Intelligence collection programs naturally generate increasing demands for new data. and once intelligence has been collected, there are strong pressures to use it against the target. The pattern of intelligence agencies expanding the scope of their activities was well described by one witness, who in 10’70 had coordinated an effort by most of the intelligence community to obtain authority to undertake more illegal domestic activity:....
...Too many people have been spied upon by too many Government agencies and to much information has been collected. The Government has often undertaken the secret surveillance of citizens on the basis of their political beliefs, even when those beliefs posed no threat of violence or illegal acts on behalf of a hostile foreign power. The Government, operating primarily through secret Informants, but also using other intrusive techniques such as wiretaps, microphone “bugs”, surreptitious mail opening, and break-ins, has swept in vast amounts of information about the personal lives, views, and associations of American citizens. Investigations of groups deemed potentially dangerous-and even of groups suspected of associating with potentially dangerous organizations-have continued for decades, despite the fact that those groups did not engage in unlawful activity. Groups and individuals have been harassed and disrupted because of their political views and their lifestyles. Investigations have been based upon vague standards whose breadth made excessive collection inevitable. Unsavory and vicious tactics have been employed-including anonymous attempts to break up marriages, disrupt meetings, ostracize persons from their professions, and provoke target groups into rivalries that might result in deaths. Intelligence agencies have served the political and personal objectives of presidents and other high officials. While the agencies often committed excesses in response to pressure from high officials in the Executive branch and Congress, they also occasionally initiated improper activities and then concealed them from officials whom they had a duty to inform. Governmental officials-including those whose principal duty is to enforce the law-have violated or ignored the law over long periods of time and have advocated and defended their right to break the law.
The Constitutional system of checks and balances has not adequately controlled intelligence activities. Until recently the Executive branch has neither delineated the scope of permissible activities nor established procedures for supervising intelligence agencies. Congress has failed to exercise sufIicient oversight, seldom questioning the use to which its appropriations were being put. Most domestic intelligence issues have not reached the courts, and in those cases when they have reached the courts, the judiciary has been reluctant to grapple with them. - The US Senate Committe To Study Goverment Operations With respect to Intelligence Activities (renamed the US Select Committee on Intelligence. 1975.
She apparently, according to the report, faked lab results, perjured herself in court and tampered with evidence. Thousands of convictions are in jeopardy and many probably should never have happened.
Most Americans Worried About Losing Jobs
The way to fix this is for the Congress and the President to get to work and start to create an economic environment that creates jobs instead of political hot air and Chinese Housing investors in US real estate.
That's the environment that we have created. The Chinese could not have done a better job if the Chinese Central Committee was actually running the Congress and the White House.
Fukushima Gag Order Is Now Official
A lot is happening here that I will go into in an update that I hope will go out to insiders before years end. There is a reason they are doing this now... something very big is up at the plant and there is a really big reason they want to remove those fuel rods ASAP.Francis: Persecution Means The Lord Is Near

In these end times, it appears that though he certainly has his faults, this Pope understands the times and some of the key battle lines we will all soon be facing. Persecution, the relentless attack on our faith, the increasing moral degeneracy of our world and a focus on the great economic disparities that exist in our world.China Sends Planes into Self Proclaimed Security Zone
This Pope is clearly working on fixing the problems within the Church.
These are dangerous times and again, I know the number of real Christians in the west is rapidly dwindling. Yes, you have lots of religious people, lots of people playing Church and many other false brethren who talk the talk but are not walking the walk, though they fake it pretty good.
Brothers, if you have struggles, problems, weaknesses and 'issues' and know it and are working on them, that is a very good sign you are on the path to life. Do you think you are perfect and got it all under control and are in a position to point fingers at your Christian brothers? You better check to make sure you are really saved. If the devil ain't messing with you regularly, its only because he's already got you and those who are in ministry have to deal with a whole different level of devils, demons and spiritual evil. Only those who have walked in those shoes many years know what I am talking about. If you ain't ministering, you can never know what I am talking about anymore than someone who has never sat in the Oval Office can really know some of the secret, hard and shocking issues the nation faces everyday. If you ain't there, you just don't know. Ordinary Christians have to deal with what I will call 'baby demons'; men and women who are called to various key ministries deal with some of the most powerful evil spirits in the devils kingdom. Satan uses his spiritual cannon's against Christ's ministers, and only needs flyswatters and BB-guns for others.
Some of you think you know. When God removes some of his protection from some of you and he allows some very powerful demons onto you, you can come around to me five or six years later (that is how long it will probably take many of you to recover from such an assault... if you recover), you can come and talk to me about your wonderful experiences, on your crutches, looking out one eye because the other is patched up, with poor diction because all of your teeth are gone, rubbing that big knot you have sticking out the back of your head. Then you can get a better appreciation for those who do this kind of work with all of their faults and the stuff we have to go through. The attempted Bribes, the threats, the blackmail, the hate, the temptations, the crookedness, even the idiocy and the thanklessness of those you are commanded serve.
God uses imperfect people. He has to, there are no perfect people. Not one. So let every Christian who thinks they have a right to judge those whom he has called to do any work of ministry take heed, careful, careful heed lest he take you home before your time and you go home with 3rd degree burns and the smell of smoke and sulfur on your garments. Be careful how you Judge the Pope, you have no idea the kinds of evil men he has to fight every single day and the people who have have tried and are trying to kill him for trying to make some serious financial reforms. That Radio preacher you heard bad things about? Don't judge, you don't have all the facts. Even those of you who think you do, don't. You want to argue about it? Buy your crutches, eye-patches and head wound ointment now... while they are on sale because you are definitely going to need them when you point fingers at those whom God has called to do his work... as Pope, Preacher, Prophet, Watchman, Healer, Deacon, Bishop, Prayer Warrior...
Today, lots of false Christians who put something other than Christ first in their lives (work, money, race, family, kids, social standing, political views, looks, sex, power, religious tradition ... pick your idol because that is what it is) but the number of real Christians (many of who are struggling) is getting smaller and smaller every day in the western world. Injustice reigns supreme and evil seems to be the watchword in the souls of far too many people, who often abuse God's people mercilessly. It is going to take a rock solid faith to stand in the days that are coming. Take heed brothers.
When Christ told the Parable of the unrighteous judge and the woman who just kept on praying (to the point of being a pain) he ended the parable with these lines.
tell you that he will avenge them speedily.
the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the
earth? - Luke 18:8
Let me say this to all of you in closing. The
devil wants your faith. That is his most prized
target. Once he gets that, he's got you. Sin too is a major
problem, Idolatry a greater one, but unbelief and a lack of
faith is always fatal to the Christian walk.
