Posts Tagged ‘Collapse of America’

Destruction from The Course of Empire by Thomas Cole, 1836.

Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful….

  • Hebrews 12:11

Another week in the collapse of America is in the books.

On the political front, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed that there is no crisis on the southern border, even as the daily number of migrants who were apprehended illegally entering the US through the southern border is 3,000…daily.  This is apart from the approx. 300 unaccompanied minors apprehended daily.  To put that in some perspective, Jeh Johnson, DHS Secretary under Barak Obama was quoted in 2019 saying, “if it was under 1,000 apprehensions [of illegal border crossers] the day before, that was a relatively good number, and if it was above 1,000, it was a relatively bad number, and I was gonna be in a bad mood the whole day.”  So a number three times what Jeh Johnson thought was “a relatively bad day” is pouring across our southern border, but Biden DHS Secretary Mayorkas is fine with this. 

Concerning our ever more aggressive cultural commissars, Dr. Suess got cancelled this week.  Well, not completely, at least not yet.   So did the Muppets.  Yes, the Muppets.  Disney, which recently released five seasons of the show on it streaming service, has slapped a content warning disclaimer on the show, warning how very bad the show is for its stereotyping and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” 

Now consider for a moment the contrast between the way Dr. Seuss and the Muppets are treated compared to the vulgar, immoral filth that characterized American pop culture in 2021.  I was thinking about this contrast the other day when sitting at a red light next to a car blasting rap out of the open windows.  Now perhaps not all rap music is as vile as the stuff I was subjected to, but much of it is.  Yet no one seems concerned about slapping a content warning on it.  In 2021 America, the vilest lyrics imaginable are perfectly acceptable, but Americans must be warned about the crimethink inherent in the Muppets and Dr. Seuss.    

Oh, and then there’s the whole Mr. Potato Head thing.  I lack the words, so I’ll spare you a long diatribe.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here. Let’s just say, I thought it was fake news when I first read about it.  It wasn’t. 

Concerning our nation’s economy, Yahoo reports that “Another 745,000 American filed new unemployment claims” during the last week in February.  Now let’s put this number in some perspective.  Simply quoting a number such as initial jobless claims doesn’t have much meaning unless it’s seen in context.  Here’s a good way to understand just how bad things are in the economy.  At the height of the 2008 financial crisis, the highest initial jobless claims number printed was 665,000 in March 2009, and the all-time record was 695,000 in October 1982. Due to the government’s unchristian, unconstitutional and unscientific overreaction to Covid, the US weekly initial jobless claims numbers have never fallen below the old record – either from 2008 or the all time high from 1982 – since 3/21/2020.  That’s nearly a year of disastrous employments numbers with no end in sight.  The economy and the financial system of the United States is a disaster area waiting for a major implosion.  The only solution our politicians can come up with is to do more of what has helped lead to this mess, namely, print more money to stimulate the economy.  This unbridled money printing will lead to the collapse of the US dollar and its removal as the world’s reserve currency.  Americans will experience a dollar collapse as rapidly rising prices and a rapidly declining standard of living.  This is going to happen.  It’s just a matter of when.

  • Deuteronomy 28:43, 44

Just a few hours before the Capitol Hill riot captured the world’s attention on January 6, Washington Post political reporter Dave Weigel tweeted out, “Protestants locked out of the top offices for the first time ever (president, chief justice, speaker of the house, [Senate] majority leader).”

Of the offices he referred to in his tweet, three – President, Chief Justice, and Speaker of the House – are held by Roman Catholics. Senate Majority Leader, Charles Schumer, is Jewish.

Jesse Curtis, whose Twitter bio states he is a historian of race and religion and is starting a job as Assistant Professor of History at Valpariso University in the fall of 2021, retweeted Weigel’s tweet, commenting on it, “The decline of Protestant supremacy (both as fact and ideology) is really something.  Less than a century ago this would have been front page news and major social tension.  Now it’s just quaint trivia.”

Another tweet by Sean Penn – yes, the actor – from 2/12/2021 reads, “Evangelical leaders should themselves be impeached by the Vatican if they themselves don’t follow Nikki Haley’s – The Monstrous Regiment (R-SC) – lead & clearly state they should not have followed Satin (sic) – this is a reference to Donald Trump – into the bowels of hell. But, perhaps they are too busy at sex parties.”

Now one could dismiss this as just another silly tweet from a confused Hollywood dweller.  But a response to Penn’s tweet caught my attention.  “thank you”, it began. “people often don’t like to acknowledge that the one holy roman catholic apostolic church has authority over the protestants so i’m glad you’re speaking out on this critical issue.”  That response was sent by Elizabeth Bruening, whose Twitter bio indicates she’s an “Opinion writer at @nytimes.”  That is to say, she is someone with journalistic and cultural clout.  Bruening also retweeted Penn’s tweet with the comment “absolutely.”
