Newt Gingrich predicts that the race to become the Republican nominee for president in 2012 will come down to him and Mitt Romney (no surprise, eh?), and it will be “a straight-out contest for the next four or five months.”
Reportage of and commentary on the 2012 Presidential race has made up the lion’s share of what has been broadcast over FOX, CNN, and MSNBC for months now. The verbal sparring matches between Gingrich and Romney, the primaries and the debates: these events are sucking the oxygen out of the other items that may be newsworthy as this first month of 2012 winds down and the world moves on to February and beyond.
Let us not be distracted. There is more here than meets the eye. America is growing more hungry, but it seems that it is not hungering for the truth. Many citizens are lacking and are led to seek the nine-digit jackpot through Powerball, Mega Millions, and other instant lottery games – but through the desperation brought about by lack those people may lose sight of the hope of eternal gold.
We must keep watch at the wall, but in that we need to see beyond the television, the newspaper and the internet, and the obsession with a presidential election. We must lift our hearts and arms upward, because the earth below our feet is but a bridge that is rickety and unstable, and ripe for collapse. Only the Bright Morning Star will illuminate the path that is solid and unshakable – away from the rickety, swinging bridge as this world aches, quakes, and groans through painful labor.
The odds of winning the nine-digit jackpot are stacked tall against us. Of course, that payout would meet immediate needs and substantially improve our quality of earthly life, but it could ultimately leave us again in lack. The dollars in the jackpot are on life-support, and could die at any time and become valueless.
America has learned a hard lesson that presidents are not saviors or messiahs. The current occupant of the White House was portrayed as both, and in that position he has conditioned a nation and the world to worship a charismatic, handsome, well-spoken man who would usher in peace and prosperity for all who are left behind to live in it.
The tongue will spit lies and the aforementioned peace and prosperity will be false when the true one world leader rises into power.
The media will cover the 2012 election and leave little room for anything else – unless an event so earth-shattering or catastrophic occurs and must be moved to the front burner of news reporting. If we look beyond the surface and toward Europe and the Middle East, we will see these news events forming today, and they will radically change America.
Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) – Rick Perry is telling supporters that he will drop his bid Thursday for the Republican presidential nomination, two sources familiar with his plans told CNN.
Herman Cain is gone. Michele Bachmann has likewise dropped out. Jon Huntsman has left the proverbial building. Now, Texas Governor Rick Perry is bidding adieu to the 2012 Presidential race, following the lead of the aforementioned Cain, Bachmann, and Huntsman and exiting the Green Room where the GOP candidates each wait for their own shot to take the stage and face the Kenyan King under the heat of the television cameras in seemingly life or death debate.
Ron Paul is still standing, supported and buoyed by a ravenous cult of followers who are seeking “hope” and “change” in a different but equally radical way. Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have been allowed to persevere thus far and continue to show signs of life despite being bruised and bloodied by the mainstream media and members of their own party. But after all is said and done, it will likely be Mitt Romney who steps into the ring against the “one” – the anointed false messiah and proud Alinsky-ite Barack Obama.
Romney would appear to be the establishment’s choice. In that role, Romney looks and sounds presidential; a classic, rugged veneer to gloss over the stuffing that will fill the suit. Romney would meet everyone in the middle and all would be pacified and satisfied. But, what we will likely see come November 2012 is not Romney versus Obama but The Establishment versus The Powers That Be – not to be confused with the NBC television series that aired in 1992 and ’93.
This writer plans to vote in the 2012 election, but it is all a charade and a masquerade. I have watched American citizens turn away from the political process, and the patriot in me could not accept it and accused them of being unpatriotic and apathetic. As time goes on, I see that perhaps it’s more than a decline of a superpower’s citizenry; it is a sense of futility that invades the mind and spirit and draws many into their own selfish pursuits because the nation and the world has broken their hearts and quashed the aforementioned spirit. Within themselves they believe they can manipulate and control their immediate surroundings and find a modicum of joy, because outside of their personal spaces there is nothing but pain, heartbreak, deflated American dreams and broken promises of a better world.
This world is on a collision course for radical change; and like an approaching blizzard it is snowing steadily now as the gale-force winds are increasing as they blow in from the Supernatural. It is a storm system that has been forming for centuries but it doesn’t take a meteorologist to see the immediate and colossal uptick in intensity.
Sure, it sounds like a crackpot conspiracy theory, but The Powers That Be are they who control the banks, stock markets, IMF and Federal Reserve. Wittingly or not, by destroying economies for their own selfish gain they are paving the way today for the rise of the Son of Perdition who will run the One World System.
Presidents wield much power, but aren’t they merely kings in a nebulous chess game being maneuvered by unseen hands? We must remember to look beyond the game board and its players and toward the true hope…
… Because there is but one Superpower, and His name is Jesus.
Jersey Shore, Miss America, Mitt Romney; three big names and exceedingly popular topics. Jersey Shore is of course the immensely popular reality television series that is considered a “cultural phenomenon” and is the all-time most viewed series telecast on MTV. (You remember; Music Television).
Newly-crowned 2012 Miss America Laura Kaeppeler would not let her father’s jail time for mail fraud be a deterrent to her pursuit of the crown, but instead stated that she desired children of incarcerated adults to feel less alone, to have mentoring, and to have as much of a relationship with their parents as possible.
Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney is seemingly the choice of the establishment; although he is not thus far the clear front-runner to be the party’s nominee for the 2012 Presidential election. The powers that be will likely exercise all manner of influence and heavy-handedness to keep Barack Hussein Barry Obama Soetoro in the office of the Presidency, as he has put forth a superb effort to undermine the U.S. economy and to neuter the world’s most powerful military; so as to erase America’s superpower status and make way for the one world system. Where the coming one world system is concerned; it will not be run by Barack Obama. While we do not know today who the Anti-Christ is or will be, we can be fairly confidant that it is not Barack Obama!
While America remains stimulated by television programs such as Jersey Shore and conversely pacified by pageantry such as Miss America; while FOX, CNN, and MSNBC continue to offer wall to wall coverage of a presidential election that may already be decided – the world has crossed the Rubicon and is perched on the precipice of peril. To be clear, there is no attempt here by this writer to encourage disengagement from the political process; as I have always been engaged in it. And certainly, I am in no position to tell grown-ups what they can or can’t watch on television. But, too many are not paying attention to the rest of the world. The safe America shores have suffered considerable erosion; enough so that what happens in the rest of the world has a profound effect on what happens in the land of the free.
I continue to bang the drum: watch Israel, who is the prophetic timepiece and the apple of God’s eye. Watch Iran primarily and the rest of the Middle East secondarily. Watch China and Russia. While the internet has yet to suffer the implementation of SOPA legislation – look for news there, because you’ll get flickering images and talking faces on television – but the reportage may be sorely lacking as the selection cum election is seemingly the only news.
We must all be watchers at the wall…
Republican Jon Huntsman has dropped out of the 2012 Presidential race, and is set to endorse Mitt Romney.
The New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, and San Francisco Forty-Niners were victorious in NFL divisional playoff action on January 14 and 15, 2012; and will move on to the NFC and AFC Championship games to decide who will participate in Super Bowl 46.
A sixth body has been found after the Costa Concordia cruise ship ran aground in a reef Friday off the Italian Island of Giglio and capsized.
The aforementioned news items are the hot topics as the week of January 15-16, 2012 gets underway. But, these trending topics beg the question: what is truly going on?
Certainly, the 2012 Presidential election which is still nearly 10 months away can’t be the most crucial and critical news that the television talking faces need to commit nearly constant reportage to. It is likely that the Republican nominee has already been selected, and there is the strong possibility that a false flag event will postpone the November election and keep Barry Soetoro in office.
NFL football is sensational, enjoyable, and an exhilarating distraction, but is it so important that it should override news concerning Iran, Israel, and the Middle East in toto? Not to be mitigated, the crash of the Costa Concordia is a heartbreaking event, but why is it being reported with the same tabloid-esque frenzy as that of the tawdry, terrible, Casey Anthony story?
Too soon, you will turn on your Toshiba 46″ television to view news on FOX, CNN, or MSNBC and something truly earth-shattering will be breaking – quite possibly a 9.0 earthquake along the New Madrid fault line? Or, it could be sudden, seemingly unexpected military action involving Iran, Israel, and the United States; if not one of several other likely combinations of Middle Eastern conflict that will send gasoline and home heating fuel prices skyrocketing. Likewise, it is a mere matter of time before the collapse of the Euro will be breaking news, bringing the Dollar down with it. Another “earth-shattering” not too distant future event could be that around the globe numerous people – seemingly millions – have suddenly turned up missing.
The disquieting, catastrophic, and in one case glorious events mentioned in the previous paragraph have yet to happen – despite considerable speculation – so therefore many of us believe they never will…
…Could it be that God the conductor is holding the silver bullet train at the station just a little bit longer so more of us can drive through the flooded, flotsam and jetsam-laden streets of our circa 2011-2012 lives; so as to make it to the ticket counter?
As for today, the train is waiting at the station and distracted passengers are loading nonchalantly; but for how much longer?
We must keep our heads up and our eyes open – not just in America but around the free world…
There is so much to distract us on the first full weekend of 2012; there is New Hampshire’s Republican Presidential primary and the wildcard round of the NFL playoffs. Sports history was made on Saturday the 7th as the Houston Texans were victorious in their first ever playoff appearance, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10. The Texans will advance and play next Sunday at Baltimore, in a rematch of a regular-season game won by the Ravens. Go Texans!
Football will entertain us, and nearly non-stop coverage and commentary of the New Hampshire Primary will distract and pacify us. Still, news of a more critical nature has received some reportage, as Iran has begun Uranium enrichment at a new underground site. Additionally, the erstwhile Persia launched a military maneuver near its border with Afghanistan on Saturday, 1/7/2012. Concurrent with this activity, Tehran continues to threaten to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if new First World sanctions harm the nation’s oil exports.
A New America is being nailed together from the smoldering plywood of the burning house of the old America. In the old America, freedom and prosperity were givens and unfortunately taken for granted by too many of the nation’s denizens. In the old America, there were cushy union jobs and pensions upon retirement. The old America operated Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm, and if you were the “new guy” who had to work on the weekend there would be time and a half or double-time pay. In summary, the old America was a free and prosperous place where you just had to save up a couple of paychecks and you’d have enough for you own apartment. Now, in the New America many are forced to live in mom and dad’s house – the parents being blessed to hang on to the vestiges of the old America – afforded through those Monday through Friday 40 hour a week jobs with weekends and holidays off.
As the drums of war beat with an increasing clamor in the Middle East, what is left of the smoldering old American plywood will be in danger of getting spilled upon by $4.00, $5.00, or $6.00 a gallon gasoline. More will be forced to choose between beer and groceries, with gasoline being rationed for those trips to local market. If there is an election this November, the citizens of New America will be forced to chose between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, with the outcome likely manipulated in advance.
The beer commercials aired during NFL games portray a prosperous life that affords expensive cars, skinny super-model women for every heterosexual male, endless recreation, a license for stupidity and irresponsibility, and an obsession with the outcomes of sporting events that are seemingly life or death. These images are the music video to the swan song of the old America…
…There is a New America and it is here, lurking in our peripheral vision. We could turn our heads to see and study it; whereby becoming prepared for this new day – but from inactivity the muscles have atrophied in our necks and shoulders and will not allow our heads to turn without considerable pain.
