The Decline and Fall did not begin with the Bill O’Reilly scandal of alleged sexual misconduct, but indeed, it might be a marker in today’s society and America’s history.
There are many in our society who attempted to convey the idea that Mr. O’Reilly was similar to Howard Beale in the movie “Network” however the similarities are only due to the age of the comparisons, not the content of their rants.
The so-called “left” in our nation however has its own issues by contrast, where the rantings and ravings of their hosts and reporters sound nothing short of Baghdad Bob at his finest. They proclaim that President Trump is nothing short of Satan, however their only proof is that someone in the opposition party, or their management’s offices told them to say or think in such a manner, akin to the propaganda seen or heard from totalitarian regimes throughout history.
The difference between old Bob and Jake Tapper or Larry O’Donnell? The uniform, nothing more, nothing less as fiction from either side, be it Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, or talk radio is just that; a fiction created to sway public opinion into unrealistic viewpoints to purchase the votes of men who have sold our nation and their souls for debts their children will pay but their lifestyles for which they enjoy now may indeed make an ancient Roman Senator blush.
This brings us to the breech which has finally shattered the faith of the American people in the concept called “America”; a fatalistic deconstruction of our founding ideals which may indeed mark a turning point in world history, which hopefully those of us above the age of fifty will not live to see to its ultimate conclusion.
So you’re mad as hell.
You sacrificed principles, the ideas of the Constitution, and agreed with the yapping yippee dogs on “conservative” talk radio to vote for President Trump. On the other side, YOU agreed to overlook the corruption and historical treason of the Clinton family to support a move to the “left” which was nothing more than a neo-socialist construct to destroy “the man” and enable a greater good by forcing income and “freedom” redistribution based on your (which was ultimately what Hillary said) concept of “need.”
Lastly, the most unprincipled of souls who decided that standing on the Constitution for profit rather than our nation to fight everyone but only agree with those who sponsor you as a “Never Trumper” meant you could still appear on leftist propaganda media outlets but still be taken seriously because you had influence on politicians via ill-gotten funding meant you had real power.
Then all of the powers that be described above wonder how the average American has lost faith in the concept of “America” due to the ability to corrupt the first amendment and condemn anyone who has honest disagreement with your positions.
But it gets worse.
How can one have faith when the 2nd Amendment is condemned as enabling the Las Vegas shooting while at the same time, it would appear some distortion or cover up of the facts is under way? The nation is so fragmented that a toy like the “bump stock” can not be banned but by God we have to find a way to condemn anyone who does not live in Boston, New York, Chicago, or D.C. who does not want an outright ban on private gun ownership. Thus the obvious elite strategy of wanting to ban one’s right to “self protection” is no longer valid if you live in those areas or subscribe to their insanity.
If you live in flyover country as I do(sort of), how can one have faith in those institutions that believe such stupidity or are willing to ignore or distort the facts until the ACTUAL facts are known?
Of course we are now expected to believe that even the weather is not politically influenced even thought the entire global climate change fiasco has been exposed repeatedly as a profit center for selling fictional “carbon credit” financial instruments by the very same mega-banks that caused the 2007-2009 financial crisis.
But hey, we’re supposed to have faith that they are “regulated” right?
The American people are easily duped, not as quickly or easily as Asians or Europeans, but we fall for it just the same. The “government” which no one has faith in or trusts, did the following after the rape and pillage tour of 2007-2009:
CEO’s Convicted by the Obama Administration:
CFO’S Convicted by the Obama Administration:
COO’s Convicted by the Obama Administration:
Investment Banks shut down due to fraud:
Yeah, gotta have faith just like this guy did in a bathroom with other freaks if you still believe that “America” is a concept grounded in the rule of law.
Yet it only gets worse. The American people are losing faith in faith.
Don’t believe me? Check this out:
Yeah, it’s a liberal perspective from the liberal rag The Atlantic, but some key points in the story are important:
Over the past decade, pollsters charted something remarkable: Americans—long known for their piety—were fleeing organized religion in increasing numbers. The vast majority still believed in God. But the share that rejected any religious affiliation was growing fast, rising from 6 percent in 1992 to 22 percent in 2014. Among Millennials, the figure was 35 percent.
Some observers predicted that this new secularism would ease cultural conflict, as the country settled into a near-consensus on issues such as gay marriage. After Barack Obama took office, a Center for American Progress report declared that “demographic change,” led by secular, tolerant young people, was “undermining the culture wars.” In 2015, the conservative writer David Brooks, noting Americans’ growing detachment from religious institutions, urged social conservatives to “put aside a culture war that has alienated large parts of three generations.”
To be honest, I understand the rejection of organized religion. When building a new volleyball court becomes more important than feeding the poor, one questions the motivations of the local church. However, when a so-called “national” church endorses individuals like Harry Reid or Donald Trump, hardly paragons of virtue, honesty, or biblical values, it becomes obvious to even the least jaded observer (I’m in the most jaded category, full disclosure) that our nation’s beliefs are for sale; be it that belief in Jesus, Mohamed, Moses, MLK, or Mr. Rogers. Hell, I’m worried that even having faith in one’s pet rock might lead us to drinking the grape Kool-Aid, but that doesn’t matter now.
Every founding aspect of our society is deconstructing before our very eyes.
We are told that because our faith leaders have “faith” in our politicians they must be right. Yet when corruption is evident be it from Obama’s churches or those of the Trumpers, we are told to turn a blind eye.
We are told that because our government is “for the people, because of the people and by the people” they always act in our best interests, yet we see f’ing accountants and bureaucrats living the dream lifestyle ON OUR HARD EARNED DOLLARS and the punishment? Nothing.
Then add in all the corruption at the judicial level on top of the horrid examples from our Secret Service, both political parties, the FBI (attention James Corrupt Comey), the CIA (yeah, you supported rebels who launched chemical weapons attacks in Syria too), etc., etc… and just how the hell are we supposed to believe in our institutions?
And why should we?
It is now officially every man, woman and child for themselves. Get what you can, while you can, and hunker down.
Because as the deconstruction of our nation, its laws, our principles, and our foundation accelerates, survival is up to the fittest, not allocated on social justice.
The choice is yours:
Take a knee and live on it like the idiots, or survive standing on your own.
Buckle up buttercup because Rome did not crash in one day and neither will America as we are about to embark on one of the most terrifying rides in the history of mankind.
