C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) wrote a great book called "The Screwtape Letters." The book is an exchange between Screwtape, and experienced demon, and his nephew Wormwood, who is an apprentice devil. The letters are written by Screwtape advising Wormwood on how to manipulate a human patient. It exposes the workings of a devious creature on his methods of mind control over a human being with an illness who is trying to find strength in a seriously difficult situation.
This is what I thought of this morning as I reflected on Obama's lengthy lying speech last evening. "The Screwtape Letters" and Cloward and Piven, who happen to be the embodiment of Uncle Screwtape in our contemporary moment of difficulties. I don't know if I have personally ever seen a president who is more condescending or who speaks out of both sides of his mouth more than this one. He is either completely stupid (which I doubt), or he believes this country is made up of dumb schmucks who will swallow anything. If you think of our America as the ailing patient looking for help and strength to overcome near fatal afflictions, and if you see the lies that Obama tries to perpetrate on the citizens of this country, you will understand why I thought of that book.
The double-talk is deliberate. The obfuscation is deliberate. The insidious, smarmy, condescension is intolerable. The connections to past slides into hell are obvious. The nods to Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, the Muslim radicals, the Unions, the anti-American left, are telling. The dishonoring of our country is disgusting at least, impeachable at most. The coddling of terrorists is dangerous. The micromanagement of individuals is unacceptable and criminal. The destruction of free markets and corporations is fascism. The ideology of this president is so anti-American that he might as well be speaking from Nazi Germany in 1939. All we fought against, from the 1700's revolution through WWII, has come to reign terror on our country from within.
Our citizens are aware of this insane monstrous lie that is our president. (I just can't make myself capitalize that word today.) The question now is what can we do to protect ourselves from him and his henchmen? I would advise waiting it out and praying to God for protection. I still advise the prayer part, but I sincerely advise we begin doing all we can to spread the word, work for candidates that can stop this coup, and thwart this administration at every opportunity. It is going to be too late to save the ship without immediate and drastic moves from the electorate, from citizens, from patriots, from us.
In closing, I want to thank C.S. Lewis, George Orwell, Ayn Rand, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, John Stossell, (all other messengers of freedom and truth) and especially our founding fathers who gave us a blue print for freedom and life. Hang on folks. The roller coaster is going down at the moment...we can pray it is going to go back up sometime (sooner rather than later).
And speaking to Uncle Screwtape....you are a very clever fellow, but God is greater.
