REPUBLICANS LEAVING THE BUILDING

There is coming a paradigm shift in the politics of America as well as a shift of power in the world. No longer will the many be suppressed by the few. Fox news has fed the people a porridge of lies and spin for far too long. The Republican party controlled by the reptilian mind have been hiding behind God. They have claimed that it is God who gave them the right to take away the rights of others. Churches have force fed this to their flocks, and many of the masses actually believe that God prefers the Republicans. They embrace a God of hate not of love.

The moment of shame for Republicans came with the dark waters of hurricane Katrina. There was a palpable apathy which was on display for the whole world to feel. How could a country which allowed its own citizens to float into watery graves be allowed to dicatate morality? Katrina was just the beginning. Then, when the disasters struck the newly-constructed luxury homes (across the country) insurance companies had no problems with the payouts. Some victims of Katrina, in New Orleans, had paid on their house insurance for decades. When they needed this help the most, many were told that they would not be adequately compensated due to something in fine print.

How do you suppose God felt receiving such a large number of people at one time due to indifference and prejudice? Since that time, the natural disasters have hit the homes of the well-to-do all over the country. Fires have raged and dark waters have overflown in the strangest places. This time, there will be no more deception or chicanery allowed to go unreported. There will be a great big spotlight placed upon one and all. The same light of scrutiny which has been placed on Senator Obama will be placed on Republicans. That in itself will be enough to dislodge the Republican exudate. God will not tolerate His name to be used as a shield of injustice; promoting “just us.”

Now, the self-righteous will be paraded for the world to see. They will be overtaken by verbal diarrhea and expose their odious agendas for the world to hear. This will take place quickly, as there is much hanging in the balance There will be an overturning of power, not because of one man, but because great evil has been done in the name of the Living God. Roe vs. Wade has benefited many politicians and preachers by making them wealthy and powerful, as they stood on their soap boxes of moral superiority. They forsook the kindness of the Christian God they claim to serve. Hate and devisiveness replaced the spirit of reconciliation.  The ministry of reconciliation is in the domain of the Lord Jesus Christ. Does God move? He is moving in the twists and turns of this 2008 Presidential election. Does God speak? Yes, and when He speaks it will be CHECKMATE.

OBAMA HATERS IN THE MEDIA

Why would anyone put themselves into the frenzy of Obama hating? It is a losing proposition. Still, there are the media giants who feed upon every gaffe that flows from Obama’s eloquent lips, like wild dogs. Why is Hannity sounding like a broken-record? My guess is that he thinks that he will hit a home run for the Republicans with his repetitive litanies preaching the evils of Barack Obama.  Sean Hannity is but a water-boy, hoping to be  perceived as champion of a Republican agenda that the nation no longer wants.

 First, was the speculation that Obama was a Muslim, because of family members-who never raised him-as well as a school he attended as a child (in which he had no say whatsoever.) Then, he was a black-racist-church- radical, with ties to other educated “evil alliances” in Chicago.  Hannity’s premise has been that Obama has to be judged by the company that he has kept. Isn’t Rush Limbaugh, who dared to tamper with the election process, one of Hannity’s good friends?  Rush should be very concerned. sitting in the seat of God is quite a dangerous position; “…He will not share His glory with another…” After Obama denounced racist and un-American remarks, he was pronounced an opportunist.  When Obama did nothing, there appeared (on Hannity’s show) a cover from Obama’s former pastor’s church in which Obama’s picture was shown (in a collage) as well as Louis Farrakhan and others. Hannity said to his audience,”…aha, aha, our eye hath seen it…” HERE is the connection between the two of them. THIS WAS A COLLAGE!!! How weak.

Hannity should know better than to attack a Pentacostal church. Perhaps, he would do well to re-read the book of Acts in the New Testament. Perhaps, he does not know that there is enough resident power within its walls to turn his entire world upside-down. Hannity should cease his efforts to slice and dice Barack Obama at every turn and do some retrospection.   How can Hannity believe that after his rabid rants against Obama and a Pentacostal church, that he is doing God a favor? Conversely, he has put himself in the seat of God. His efforts will fail. The traps that he lays will fail, everything that he does against Obama will fail. It is ugly in the sight of God. Limbaugh and Hannity, together, will not be able to destroy this man because he is an “evil liberal.”  Hannity should know this about God; “…He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust…” This is something Hannity should already know, being a Catholic. A cruel joke, really; to think one is either God or doing God a favor, when the opposite is true.

What Hannity is becoming is like a Roman Emperor engaged in a Colosseum spectacle. Doesn’t he know that he is dealing with a gladiator? Doesn’t he  know that with all of his hate-filled speech, he has positioned Senator Obama as the “David” of our times facing “Goliath?” Has Hannity ever wondered why in spite of his “broken-record” efforts to derail this man, that his efforts fail? Ultimately, Hannity will become a bad taste in the mouths of the many. His negativity is off-putting. It is irrational. Hannity does not even wait for Obama to falter. Fox news and its predictable pundits spend their time gathering up shards with which to attack Obama, his wife, his campaign and his “call” for change. I am here to declare to the media and to all who use their positions of power to attempt to destroy this man, that you, too, shall fail. How very foolish. The reason is that there is a God. He is neither Hannity nor Limbaugh.  “…He will not share His glory with another…” After a long season of God having His name used as a shield to hide  every mannner of ugliness, greed and abuse of power, He is at this very moment judging the self-righteous!!!

 O’Reilly, having a more fair and balanced approach, has stopped trying to make news, but rather report it. Perhaps that is the reason why his show ranks higher than Hannity’s. I will speculate as to the source of Hannity’s irrational behavior: the Republican nominee is weak. Not because he is not honorable, but because he is a chameleon. He spoke one way to win the nomination and now he speaks another way. Hannity should be concerned and spend his time trying to take the “double-speak” out of the mouth of the Republican nominee. McCain is attempting to”… become all things to all men, in the hopes that he might win some…”McCain is certainly not the Republican nominee that the rank and file of the party had hoped for. If Fox news spent more time  trying to spin its own straw into gold, ceased from its “plutonium-laden” tirades against Barack Obama, and at least appeared to want reconciliation and healing for a disenchanted nation,  then perhaps young people’s dreams would not be dashed to the ground; leaving them restless and angry. Perhaps, people old enough to know about Jim Crow, could have a glimmer of hope in their eyes before they die.  Perhaps, Martin Luther King Junior would not have died in vain; his dream still being bitterly opposed in 21st century America.
