Here Comes The Rain
17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. 18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. 20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: 22 all in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. 23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark. 24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
A dark storm cloud has enveloped the World – it’s name is Totalitarianism.
And sooner or later it will unleash it’s deluge – and no one will be spared.
The one ark that would be able to resist the deluge is in a state of disrepair, having been sabotaged by it’s crew.
A hard rain is gonna fall and America, along with the other nations of The Anglosphere, are set to be swallowed-up and drowned.
Americans now confront some very hard choices and some of them are fraught with the greatest dangers to Freedom and Ordered Liberty.
-Do we accept The Jarrett Junto’s plan to relegate America to being either a second-rate power or one of a half-dozen or so Super Powers?
No, not if we want to enjoy any kind of security…or Hope.
-Do we seek an Augustus to crush our enemies without, at the cost of ignoring our Domestic enemies, at the price of Caesarism at home?
I fear many will conduct just such a search, be willing to sacrifice their Freedom for security in a now extremely dangerous World, let the Despotic central government continue to enslave us because they believe National Security is the most important issue. This is one of the reasons Augustus was able to triumph and The Roman Republic was replaced by The Roman Empire. The Citizens of Rome were tired of the instability that had wracked their nation for many years. They were exhausted worrying about invasions from Barbarians and more civil wars. They were fed-up with the Chaos. Thus, they supported a Strongman, a Dictator in all but name, who came along and restored Rome’s military might, made the other nations and tribes fear Rome’s wrath, and brought stability to Roman Society. If that meant allowing a Tyrant to also rule their own lives, this was a sacrifice they were willing to make, so that they could go back to feeling secure and seeking financial gain and enjoying themselves.
Ambition saw that stooping Rome could bear
A MASTER, nor had Virtue to be free.
-James Thomson, from the poem Liberty
-Neither of these choices is acceptable to me.
We need to elect a President who has what it takes – The Right Stuff – to mount an effective offensive against Islam, Fascist Russia, and Communist China. This is still achievable.
The war to restore the central government is lost, the patient, as I’ve stated before, is terminal, but the one area where it can be saved is in the domain of National Defense. The deliberate sabotaging of our Military can still be reversed and our Armed Forces and reputation can both be brought back-up again to a level where Despots will think twice before challenging us or defying us. One determined Man who surrounds himself with Virtuous Men and Women of like caliber and Will can salvage our Might, can make the Tyrants shake with Fear.
While this President and his people confront the outside World – and it is a job that will take-up all of their time, as all wars do – we must take-on the Domestic Despotism we live under.
Be it through a Convention Of The States or staging the fight in several of the Several States, it falls to us to re-establish Justice, re-insure Domestic Tranquility, re-provide for the Common Defense, re-promote the General Welfare, and re-secure The Blessings Of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.
It is our Duty.
And, if we fail to carry out our Duties, we, and all we stand for, will perish from the face of the Earth.
‘Be not afraid!’
The Sons of Liberty on the 14th of August 1765, a Day which ought to be for ever remembered in America, animated with a zeal for their country then upon the brink of destruction, and resolved, at once to save her, or like Samson, to perish in the ruins, exerted themselves with such distinguished vigor, as made the house of Dogon to shake from its very foundation; and the hopes of the lords of the Philistines even while their hearts were merry, and when they were anticipating the joy of plundering this continent, were at that very time buried in the pit they had digged. The People shouted; and their shout was heard to the distant end of this Continent. In each Colony they deliberated and resolved, and every Stampman trembled; and swore by his Maker, that he would never execute a commission which he had so infamously received.
-Samuel Adams, writing as ‘CANDIDUS’, 19 August 1771
