It’s not my best work, but I figure that getting it out now rather than later is preferable. The main meat of this is condensing the legitimacy argument of my EO-rejection into the first inside-page and expanding on the religious-objection on the back cover:
Have you ever seen something and you just know what’s going to happen? — This happened to me when I was seeing a barrage of articles about the Taliban offensive in Afghanistan as the US withdraws, to include capturing materiel: humvees, artillery, Blackhawk helicopters, weapons-caches (armories), and so on. I thought ‘this is odd’, and put it out of my mind… until I remembered something and everything ‘clicked’ into place.
This year is the 20TH anniversary of the 9/11 attack, and this? …this is setting the stage for another 9/11. One where they’re going to have “terrorists” operating US military equipment killing US civilians, trying to ignite “The War on Terror” for a whole new generation that knows nothing of what things were like before 9/11.
The leaving of materiel is key to this realization: I was in the Army —National Guard to be precise— and losing your personal weapon (M–16, M–4, etc) carries some stiff punishments, how much moreso things like Blackhawks and humvees? This is not a “pull-out”, but actively arming our enemies, this is stuff that is not given to privates, but generals and flag-officers and field-grade officers.
In short: this pull-out is, in its execution, treason: giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
Add to all this the talks of allowing refugees, hundreds of thousands of them, and things become even clearer that this is all preparing the setting: “Taliban” “terrorists” who, ‘unfortunately’ got through our detection from the ‘refugees’ using US equipment killing civilians. — Never mind the logistics here, this isn’t about foreigners from afar enacting this, but the narrative which will be spun by the traitors here.
And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, they’re rubbing our noses in the whole thing. I believe it to be planned, and that the people executing everything are signaling it, laughing at the average person in their arrogance. — Just look at this: the last plane to leave Afghanistan, labeled with September 11TH (international date format, not US date-format).
I hope and pray I’m wrong, but there’s no excuse for the crescendo of cluster-fuck we’re seeing.
John Adams proclaimed a day of “Solemn Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer” in 1798, and given the obvious hard times we have coming — everything from widespread corruption, to foreign-bought politicians, from 30 million unemployed to the obvious favor shown to illegal-aliens — it is obvious that we need help. And only Divine help will do.
So, here is my prayer, short and simple:
Father God, please care for us, provide our food and clothes; assist us in putting into positions of authority those who will do Justly, who love mercy, and who walk humbly with you — not because of who we are, but because of who You are, and who you’ve shown yourself to be by the work accomplished on the Cross — Amen.
