Two Scenarios

I thought about the debacle that happened in the Senate impeachment trial and a couple (among a few others) of scenarios came to me. I had to agree that there isn’t a trial without physical evidence or witnesses or a jury that have not already said guilty or not guilty before the trial have begun. Also, there is a law against taking revenge against witnesses.

I was in the military (K-9) for many years and we had a protocol for the event of a loose dog. By that I mean when an animal escapes his quarters and was running loose through the area, people had to be warned to the hazard. The person that discovers the problem immediately yells ‘loose dog, loose dog’. What should be yelled in the case of the President now that he is free to do whatever he wants to do to anyone he chooses? Mad President?

The other scenario I thought of is when there is a nuclear incident. I have been a witness to a few and with one I put out the warning. Your heart really pumps when it happens. The person that discover an incident immediately yells (and radio HQ) ‘broken arrow, broken arrow, broken arrow’. Now there is a warning about the President and what he may do. Everyone must be aware that he may feel emboldened and with that he may do anything, legal or illegal. And he has.

It’s terrible to think of our President in the way I think about him. Frequently I say to myself that he could not get to be any worst and I am often proven wrong more times than I want. I cannot believe a liar especially when I know the truth. I have my eyes wide open and my heart is broken. It’s crying because our government have slipped so low. I am also amazed that so many people buy anything he does or say. I must take another look at humanity and rethink the actions of our government.

For years I did not closely look at our government because I was in the military and swore an oath to obey and do my job for whomever was in command. Since I retired, I have been watching them and I am amazed that so many people in the government get away with so much. What amazes me more are the people that let them get away with it. So many government officials say one thing to get what they want but do another when they get where they want to go.

So, I know I am not the first person to see this, but I want to yell anyway ‘mad President, mad President’. Maybe people that condone this will finally hear and take action to corral the situation. I have my doubts, but I want to try. Maybe I’ll get lucky and sway a few and get the ball rolling.

SPECIAL NOTE: There will not be a blog ( www.faithingodministries.net ) next weekend because I am moving again, back to the Richmond area. Also, don’t forget, I write in a monthly magazine (the online glitches have been corrected). Look for Robert Threatt in www.albemarletradewinds.blogspot.com, normally near the rear of the magazine. It is published (hard copy and internet) around the fourth of each month. See ya in two weeks!!!

 

The Cult

Cult: An instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers.  2. The object of such devotion

Revere: To regard with respect tinged with awe; venerate

Venerate: To regard or treat with reverence; revere

As I look at the Impeachment trial and, before that, the House hearings I still say what I said before and that is, what we have here is a cult. Look at the definition and think about what is going on in Congress and at the White House. It can not be said that it is not what it is. The head of a cult does what he or she wants to do when he or she wants to do it and in whatever way he or she wants.

This cult reminds me of Jim Jones who killed all his members in Jonesville, Guyana in 1978 but he started the Peoples Temple in Indiana during the 1950s. His members were doing whatever he told them to do and in 1978 died for him willingly. Jim Jones did not like the press and tried to kill them along with his people. Jim Jones always did what he wanted to do including fathering many children with many women.

All this smells like our government, all three branches of government plus the civilian supporters. They are in a cult and do not want to see outside their large sect. If there is something or someone they do not like, they will, in some way, try to get rid of the problem. It is what the leader wants or like and the members will do their best to ensure it is so. The leader cannot do or say anything wrong. Any law he fabricates is righteous to the members because they cannot  see the fallacy in it.

At first, I was thinking that the President wanted to emulate the Russian leader or the North Korean leader or the Chinese leader or others like them, but I looked again and realized the grifter wanted a cult. At his campaign rallies, the crowds are over the top and, like most cults, they are mostly young. Like Congress they do not want to hear anything said against him. They will fight to their death.

As far as the government is concerned, it is hard to put a finger on why they admire this cult leader. Of course, the cult leader has moved his people into prime positions so that he has control over all parts of the government. Sounds like a Russian conspiracy to me. But it could just be part of the cult.

Either way, I am a person that think for myself and detest others thinking for me. That is the very reason a cult would never work for me and I cannot follow a grifter like our current President. He has his cult members, especially Congress, wrapped around his little finger. His party is naive about the ways of the grifter and is caught up in the web while listening to his canting voice.

The President now have a broad black mark on his legacy and, as I have said in my other blog      (  www.faithingodministries.net ), God will have His say and the followers will go down with him. I don’t like cults and don’t see how intelligent people can be drawn into them. How can people be like sheep being led to the slaughter? Being in a cult is only good for one person, the leader and all others are like the sheep.
