America Needs Leadership

March 21, 2016

America is in dire need of leadership. There is a transpicuous vacuum of men and women willing to stand up for truth and justice. Leadership is an active stance against evil, especially when doing so is guaranteed to be met with ad hominem attacks and condemnation, is what America desperately needs. But, the leadership of today does not example determination to lead as per definition; rather it is the very imprimatur of appeasement, political intrigue, and reprehensible cravenness adorned in vestiges of political correctness.

I am reminded of a bromide a wise person once told me. They said: “There is no wrong in right, and there is no right in wrong.” Yet today it isn’t just that corruption and treachery abounds with abject disregard for truth, decency, integrity, honor, ad nauseum, it’s that the morally opprobrious behavior is lauded and looked upon as leadership. Today morally bankrupt calumniators controlled from the shadows by a camarilla of satanic marplots lead America. Diocletian was a more honorable man than those who are viewed as leaders today.

Viewing Obama as anything other than the “word” leader is akin to calling Idi Amin or Kim Jong-un generals because they plastered their chests with candy machine medals.





Obama struts around Cuba with cameras in tow and a complicit American media hailing him as king while Cubans are rotting in Castro’s prisons.

President Reagan’s historic trip to Berlin was fraught with peril and concern for his personal safety. Some 50,000 or more protested against him the day before his arrival. But President Reagan would not be deterred. His senior staffers warned and advised him to tone down the speech he was to give. But, unlike Obama, President Reagan was a leader; a Godly man of principle, and so it was that against all advice to the contrary President Reagan stood at the Brandenburg Gate behind panes of bulletproof glass and uttered the words that will live forever in hallowed halls of history: “If you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

The media of the day, not unlike their progeny of today, paid little attention to the words President Reagan spoke that day but the world did and history did. More importantly Gorbachev did as well and ultimately the Berlin Wall fell.

Obama behaves as a conquering hero calcifying his legacy as the people of Cuba look upon him as a ceremonial mange who has added to their woes and misery.

Where is the leadership that one would expect to stand up and demand that the organized and massively funded groups supplying rioters and violent protesters cease and desist their violence against those who gather to hear Donald Trump speak?

This isn’t about support for Donald Trump; it’s about America adhering to her system of laws. It is about the Constitutional right of assembly being undermined in the most flagrant of ways. But just as Obama gave his tacit stamp of approval when his then attorney general Eric Holder refused to indict members of the New Black Panther Party for one of the most flagrant acts of voter intimidation in over 40 years, so Obama glibly refuses to demand order in the streets at campaign rallies.

Who cannot recall the scurrilous claims persisting even today, that to disagree or condemn Obama’s policies is racist? What is it when Soros-funded Marxist Democrat front groups are supplying rabid haters for the express purpose of injuring people, disrupting and denying the civil rights of others?

Where are Congress and the state governments? Since when is it judicious to blame the victims of the unwarranted, premeditated, criminal assaults and terroristic threats as being responsible for violence against them? When did said behavior become acceptable? Can you imagine what the media and Obama would be saying if Tea Party groups came together to violently protest and threaten a Muslims gathering?

Those in Congress are not leaders; they are usurpers giving new meaning to usufruct. And it goes without saying that there is no more unambiguous example of usufruct than the Obama woman but I digress.

In that I referenced Diocletian I would be remiss if I omitted the lack of leadership in churches today as being synonymous with those in the church of Pergamum. Christ Himself referenced the church in Pergamum as being where “Satan’s throne” is and the place where “Satan dwelleth” and as giving home to “Them that hold the doctrine of Balaam.” How much is said true within our churches today?

America suffers not because she is cursed but because the people of America have been knowingly led astray by nefarious envoys of evil who hate freedom and reverence to God. The proof of which is the heterodoxy that is being advanced in our centers of education beginning with our grade schools.
