WAG THE DOG

I haven’t written a political post for a while.  I’m trying with all my strength to avoid such things.  There’s enough crud going on in our world today, however, I feel compelled to repost an article I wrote several years ago.  During the pandemic I have developed a growing interest in world history.  The internet is full of stories of war and how they were most often motivated by greed, power and politics.  Our blogging friend, Salvageable, has written many interesting articles on war over the span of this world’s history and he seems to agree.  I may be considered a nut case, but there are so many things about this Ukranian situation that just don’t sit right with me.  Will we all be wiped off the face of the earth for political reasons?

In 1997 a film was released which was filled with espionage, media hype, a war, a scandal, a movie producer with exceptional PR skills and lots of things that eventually came true. It was right before the Clinton-Lewinsky incident. The movie was an interesting story intended to be comedic, but it stirred the imaginations of many conspiracy theorists.

Could such a plot be unfolding right before our very eyes? The President’s ratings go down and there is another crisis to handle. The Congress has pretty much lost the confidence of its employers (us) and the Senate seems to have totally forgotten who they work for.

Rahm Emanuel quoted this early at the beginning of the Obama administration.

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Another movie, “the Manchurian Candidate” also dealt with the possibility of a Vice President being groomed by the Manchurian Global Corporation. The man’s mother basically sells her soul to the devil to make this happen. The plan is that once he’s elected, an assassination attempt will be made on the president, thus giving the job over to the son. The main plot is a global takeover by the Communist regime.  These stories can make us wonder just how much of this stuff is true.

Our world is and will be in constant turmoil until the Day of Judgment, but we must never lose sight of the fact that God remains in control. If we continue to trust Him, we can be assured of a great outcome.

Lord, our world seems to be imploding. We see signs of end times each day. The ugliness of sin has inhabited every civilization. We turn to you in prayer, to bring comfort to all who suffer and are being persecuted. We pray for those who are starving and diseased. Protect them with your caring hands.  Strengthen us through your Holy Word.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    The only good thing about politics, it brings me closer to God. God takes evil and turns it into good and that is in the Bible.

      I know that is very true, Myrna. Right now I’m watching as my husband is close to dying. I know where he’s going, but I can’t bear the thought of being without him.

        I have been there, it was nine years ago this past November, my consolation was he had all the Sacraments for the dying and said the name of Jesus, just before he passed away, during the Apostolic blessing of the Church. You will never get over the loss, even knowing it is the Will of God.

    Kathy, I did not know Paul is near death. He was a perfect match for you in working the Lord’s ministry. I care.

      Oh, my dear friend, this isn’t the first time. Yesterday I thought I was going to lose him though. I believe his blood pressure must’ve dropped considerably and he was ready to die. He’s been through quite an ordeal with what started out as a hernia and added by a urinary problem. He had prostate cancer about ten years ago and received the daily radiation treatments for several weeks.
      Apparently there was a great deal of scar tissue that was interfering with his urinary tract and causing bleeding. He was in the hospital for 11 days and has been home with a catheter for three weeks now. The bleeding has continued, with additional trips to the urologist’s office. He has been fitted with five different catheters, which is painful in itself. Each one gets a little bigger. Yesterday we went back to the urologist and they put a new catheter in. Today he was ready to go to Bible study. I wasn’t happy about that. I felt he needed some time to heal, but he insisted. He left to go and the car acted up, so he decided to stay home.
      I’m personally on a roller coaster ride with never knowing what’s going to be at the next turn. Paul is ready to die, yet he feels God still needs him here for a reason.
      I ask you to pray for his return to health and that God will give us all peace when the time actually comes.

    Another thing about being political. People need to be warned and need some signs of what lies ahead. Tell them. For the sake of the Kingdom and for the sake of the country. I understand the feeling of being too old to make a difference. Too old, too ugly, too forgetful, too handicapped, too sleepy, too ………… kick that stinking thinking to the woodpile. Most of our troubles are that we are too lethargic, and too willing to let George to it. Love you, girl.

      Thanks for that encouragement. I am discovering that time is running out for those in our age bracket, so it’s time to make some noise.

    I don’t know how many times in the past year that I’ve said about a news story, “You just can’t make this stuff up.” The world seems to be crazy, with good being bad and bad being good, but none of it surprises God. Praying for you and Paul.

      Thanks Rebecca. God remains consistent in all things and all we can do is pray that something good will come of all the craziness.

    Long-distance hugs to you, Kathy, and Paul. Rough way to dodge bullets and cross valleys near Heaven’s door. Paul, I have loved your pictures. They always bless me. What do you suppose you will draw first in Heaven? I would imagine it will be Jesus in his “Revelation” look – all that glorious white and gold – brass too, huh? Don’t remember for sure. When you do it, put clumps of Lily of the Valleys at his feet. Add a bit of purple. When he asks you why, tell him I ask you to. Maybe he will choose to let you draw one of these before you go. My husband had some of the same issues after a cancer surgery a long time ago, but I do remember how painful it was for him. Sorry for your pain.

      Thanks, Oneta. I shared your words with Paul and he asked me to thank you for your kind compliments. He’s doing better today. We went to church. Still quite a road ahead. I appreciate your hugs too🤗🤗
