In the Bible, that book so revered by our founders that they based much of their philosophy upon it, it is written: (Matthew 23:27, RSV) (F)or you are like whitewashed tombs which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanliness, so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Political thought is not generally well received on this platform but we are at a juncture in our country’s history where it is vital that every avenue of communication be used to shout “danger.” This is not a partisan issue, we are at a definite fork in the road and if we choose to follow the wrong path our journey into the future may well spell disaster for all, without regard to an individual’s political ideology.
For the first time in our history we have a putative president-elect who arrived at that position not through a rigorous campaign but, rather, was chosen by a diverse group consisting of politicians and appointed officials from both parties, the media, big pharma, big tech and oligarchs both domestic and foreign. His selection for the position was not so much an election as an anointing. The former Vice President was not selected for his strengths, he was chosen precisely because of his weaknesses.
Joe Biden and his family, as with the Obamas and the Clintons, have spent most of a lifetime in “public service.” While never creating a product or performing any memorable service, they have all managed to become very wealthy. This is not unique to the forenamed individuals, it is quite common among those in the so-called “Deep State.” The whitewashed tomb is an apt metaphor for Washington, D.C.
While corruption in government, to some degree, has been with us since the inception of the nation it has now reached a scale in which the perpetrators no longer bother to cover it up. Criminal activity, if investigated at all, is never prosecuted. Criminal charges are now reserved for punishing political rivals rather than enforcing justice.
Fully half of the country believe that the latest election was stolen and there is ample evidence to support that belief. Where is the bipartisan outcry to establish the truth?
The current president may or may not have a good case but the same forces that spent his entire term in office in an attempt to thwart his presidency and remove him from office are marshaled against any attempt to present his case or perform any meaningful audit of the suspected fraudulent activity during and after the election.
If there is no longer equal justice, if criminal activity can be carried out openly with no repercussion and if elections can be stolen blatantly, with tacit approval from the courts and from fully half the population of the nation then we, as a republic, are doomed to join the vast array of once great nations on the ash heap of history.
There are many, the members of that diverse group named above, who would welcome such an outcome, who are in fact actively engineering just such a future for America. And if we, the people, do not recognize what is happening, what we stand to lose and if we do not form an alliance of patriots to oppose the oligarchy and the Deep State then America is lost and deservedly so.
This is not a political issue, it is an existential battle for the soul of America, a question of whether or not this nation will be able to defeat and thereby survive the corruptocracy that has it in a stranglehold. There are only two sides to this fight and none of us are apart from the fray. To fight the good fight requires effort, to join in on the side of the corrupt you need only to not resist them.
