THE REPUBLICAN CONFEDERACY

Long ago, after the Civil War, there were the cries of the defeated Confederacy, “the South shall rise again.” We are seeing it and hearing it in disbelief as this configuration of forked-tongued, delusional politicians and the routed far-right spin, plot and plan President Obama’s destruction.  There is just one big problem; God despises hypocrites. He loathes them. He despises liars and their lies, he despises plots planned behind closed doors to destroy a man who gave the  United States of America hope.  The Extreme Right will fail. The secessionists will fail, the NRA poster children will fail. They are unrighteous. They have no compassion or pity for the poor or needy and they only crave power. Why do they try to sell the world on a God who does not care for people suffering in pain and without help or hope?  I have a news flash: The Lord God High and Mighty put President Barack H. Obama in office and there isn’t a thing that the birthers, deathers, seccessionists, and dangerously armed can do about it.

 

The word of God declares that it is God who sets the kings of the earth in office. The Religious Right should be ashamed of themselves for being bigots. They have resorted to lies to defame Barack Obama. These lies will be exposed to the light of moral truth, and those who tell them will be laughing stocks for many years to come. The strategy that the Republicans are now working will fail. They rationalize,  just like their ancestors who said that a slave was only a fraction of a human therefore could be sold as chattel. The more the Republicans lie and vilify the President the greater will be their own fall from grace.

 

Many liberal media outlets seem to think that Obama really believes that he can win over the Republicans. How can he still believe in this?  In a game of basketball when there is an excellent player, they will have that person guarded by two or more players to stop him. Have you ever heard of the basketball move of “faking to the right” and moving to the left to drive the basket to the hoop? I do not understand why the liberal media thinks that this brilliant Chicago lawyer and politician has gotten to the White House and turned stupid. Do they really think that the President of the United States is less aware of his opposition than the liberal media? Poppycock!  President Obama has the discipline required to submerge his ego to gain what his ego truly desires. Remember, Secretary Clinton had no idea that she had already lost the nomination, because of the way President Obama played his hand. If she had known, she would not have accrued so much additional debt. Think about it for a minute.

 

I decree success to everything that President Obama and their staff set their hands to do. Who can curse what God has blessed? This is the parable of the mercenary prophet Balaam who was going to curse the children of Israel for filthy lucre’s sake. The Lord sent an angel to withstand him. He opened his mouth to curse, and blessings poured out instead. God is gong to take the curses coming against the President, nullify them and then promote him in front of all of those who hate him. The mistake that the Republicans are making is that they actually believe the lies that they tell. The subconscious mind receives all information as truth. When the Republicans tell themselves over and over again that they will topple the President, I am sure that they believe what they are saying. To the rest of the world they look like they howl at the moon.

 

Everyone should rejoice and be glad that I am  not calling the shots. I would make sure that all of the big-mouthed Republicans walk in the moccasins of the poor, disenfranchised, unemployed, disabled and sick. Let them carry the loads of their brethren in Christian charity. I am sure there will be no volunteers for this. But I will say that those who cause the most problems for the majority of the nation and the leader of our nation shall lose their positons of power, their spheres of influence,  their luxury and even their country club memberships. I can safely predict that those who call good evil and evil good who will have a major run of “Murphy’s law.” The Religious Right have ceased their clarion call for revival. They don’t talk about the end-time harvest. They talk about deposing “the tyrant.”  They have failed to understand that they are on the wrong side of God on healthcare for all. The Republicans shall fail because they have a collective  seared conscience and low moral ground.

RACISM REINVENTS HERSELF

Racism no longer spends her time
Washing the blood-soaked spots
From her maudlin dress.
She no longer wears her Puritan
Bonnet of pride out in public.
She has had to reinvent herself
In order to survive in this
Politically correct world;
Where with one touch of the
Remote control, all eyes are watching.

Now, when in public, she is an
Advertisement for the latest dental
Bleaching breakthroughs; her smile
Reveals perfectly even white teeth.
One would never suspect the cannibalistic
Orgy that takes place at her supper table.
There, she feasts upon the flesh of men,
Remarking on their relative inferiority based
Upon the taste that their DNA  provides to
Her seasoned tastebuds and palate.

Racism has changed her vocal patterns
And speech.  She no longer speaks the
Language that reveals the continued
Narrowness of her focus.  She no longer
Prattles on about her “God-given” right
To destroy the lives of others in order
To fill her never satisfied coffers.
Because… all ears are listening.

When the doors are closed, and she is
Alone, she lets down her tangled hair,
Damp from midnight meetings with
Marsh monsters.  We never get to see
Her skeleton body; skinless and soulless.
Alone, she sits in all of her splendor,
As the ruling skeleton of death.

She tells her grandchildren to continue
In her legacy of pride and arrogance.
Her grandchildren have learned her
Tactics well; they can spew out racial
Slurs as well as their grandma, and will
Do so, at the slightest hint that they
May not be superior, after all.

Every now and again, her zealous followers
Will be seen presiding over the
Beatings, and tauntings of the random
Victims of her long-lingering ire.
Yet, she still attends church.  She attends one of
Those churches that are less concerned with
The conditions of a man’s soul,  but are
More concerned with the weight of the offering
Plate as it is passed around.  Her purse is full of
The money from the exploitation of others.

In order to maintain the appearance of her
Latest reinvented self, she will measure from
Her treasury some funds back to the less
Fortunate, of their own money.  Money
Stolen from the systematic exploitation and
Rape of others based on the propagation of lies.
She remains prideful and powerful.  She controls
Boardrooms and financial institutions without
Having to put in the usual public appearances.

She throws her head back and lets go of a
Full-bellied laugh when words like “quotas” and
“reparations” are bandied about.  She has no
Intention of ever giving up her lavish lifestyle.
Yes, she has made for herself an opulent lifestyle,
From the bones of dead men.  She never apologizes
For the hideousness of her old appearance.
She successfully redirects all watching eyes
To her newer look. Deluded, and intoxicated
With the power from ill-gotten gain,
She believes that the whole world
Who watches is deceived… still.
