Why I’m Getting Out Of Politics After This Election And What I Plan To Do With This Blog Beginning On November 7

One way or another, I am going to get out of day-to-day political blogging after this election.

I’ve said it before.  All the way back on April 29, 2009, I said to someone in replying to a comment:

I never intended to remain in political blogging this long.  I thought I’d blog through the election, do my best to prevent this country from choosing this terrible man, and stop.

But it’s just been one outrage piled on top of another – so many you literally can’t cover them all.  And I demand that there be a record of these outrages.

In April of this year, I wrote:

Whether Obama wins or whether Romney wins, I’m getting out of politics after this election. I’ll continue to blog, but I’ll be done with politics.

If Obama wins, frankly Obama’s God damn America will deserve whatever hell it descends into. I will have done the best I could do trying to warn people that Obama is leading us to hell, and if he gets re-elected I will be done with warnings. I’ll warn you while you’re pouring gasoline on yourself; I’ll warn you when you strike a match; but when you set yourself on fire you’re on your own. If Romney wins, I’m frankly just not going to carry water for him. I’ll vote for him as the lesser of two evils, but he’s not exactly the guy I’m going to spend the next four years carrying water for.

So I hope no one thinks that this announcement implies that I think Obama’s going to win and can’t face liberals anymore and blah, blah, blah.

Basically, my reasoning is this: if Obama is reelected, I did everything I could to try to warn you fools.  And if a nation is foolish enough to reelect a president with the record of failure that Barack Obama has now accumulated, well, that is a nation that is immune to wisdom or warning and my conscience is clean as I shake the dust of the coming economic implosion off my feet and ride off into the sunset.  On the other hand, if Mitt Romney is elected, well, his entire history (contrary to liberals’ demonization of him) is that of a moderate RINO and while he’s got the singular virtue of being “far better than Obama,” he’s not someone I want to devote thousands of hours carrying water for.  If Sarah Palin were president, if Herman Cain were president, well, maybe I’d buckle the armor back on and keep fighting for them.

There is a personal cost for an evangelical Christian conservative to dive into political blogging.  Politics is by its very nature an angry place.  It very quickly becomes mud wrestling.  And it was simply never a place that I wanted to spend my life fighting in.  I certainly don’t want to keep dealing with fools and I certainly don’t want to keep screaming at people every day.

What got me into blogging to begin with?  I saw those Jeremiah Wright sermon tapes – “No, no, no!  NOT God bless America!  God DAMN America!” – and I knew that Barack Obama was truly an evil man to have spent 23 years of his life in that Marxist, racist, anti-American hellhole and then climbing out of that toxic nest of demons and dusting himself off only when it became convenient to his political charade.  I had a vision of America under the leadership of this evil man; and sadly enough it looked very much like what I now see all around me today.  In some ways it’s not as terrible as I feared it would be, and in other ways it’s five times worse than I feared it would be.

I got into political blogging with the intent of 1) preserving a record of what Obama did to America, because the mainstream media refuses to do it and quickly purges the few things they DO print; 2) to try to explain both liberalism and conservatism so that people can see why the former is depraved and the latter is the best worldview for a moral and free people; and 3) to provide arguments and document the facts as I present them to try to help those who have their own arguments with their own circles of influence.

Let me just say that the future does not look bright for America, even if Romney wins.  Yes, we have a $16 trillion debt, and yes, Obama has piled on $6 trillion of that debt in only four years after the hypocrite demonized Bush for adding $4 trillion over eight years.  But that isn’t anything close to our real debt.  Our real debt is over $222 trillion and skyrocketing.

But even THAT isn’t our real debt, because our real debt is that more-than-$222 trillion-and-skyrocketing figure PLUS the debt of our states.  California alone has an unfunded liberal union pension gap of $500 billion.  And Illinois alone has an unfunded liberal union pension gap of $210 billion.  And we are seeing deadbeat states that cannot pay their debts and we are seeing cities going bankrupt.

Our real debt would be impossible to estimate even if all the liberal politicians who have bankrupted their jurisdictions at every level would honestly account for what they did.  And rest assured they never will until after it’s too late.

The Bible tells us in Revelation chapter six that the beast, the Antichrist, is coming.  We find that a global economic collapse is coming; we find that in the midst of this ghastly global landscape there will be famine and plagues and war and mass death.  And what we literally see is this big government false messiah called “the beast” riding in on a white horse to save the day.  And the world will literally worship him for his “deliverance” as he steps in with one plan of action after another.  They will so worship him that they will allow him to take over the world political system and the economic activity of every single human being on earth.

It is amazing how badly things are going in America and how little reporting is being done on how badly things are going.  The labor participation rate has plummeted every single year under Obama and is now at a more than 31-year low (i.e., worse than it EVER was under Bush).  In fact, if we measured unemployment by the labor participation rate that Bush handed off to Obama, our unemployment rate would be 11.6% now rather than dropping to 8.1% because we refuse to measure the millions of discouraged workers who have abandoned hope of finding a job.  For every job Obama “adds,” there are FOUR workers who drop out of the workforce.  There are 4 million fewer jobs than there were when Obama took office, in spite of the fact that 4 million Americans turn 18 and thus “age in” to the work force every single year.  Last year new start-up businesses were at the lowest level EVER measured in the 25-year history of recording that statistic; this year new start-up businesses plunged by another 24%.  And the median household income has plunged 8.2% under Obama’s failed leadership.  And, amazingly, household incomes have dropped TWICE as much under Obama as they did during the 2008 recession, just to document what a horrible job Obama has done since.  And with statistics such as the 13.2% plunge in durable goods in one month – which is the biggest drop since January 2009 – there is no reason to think things are going to get better under Obama’s policies.

If Obama is reelected, we are going to go on a ride to hell as a nation:

Only there will be no going back up this time.

And yes, if you want to give the above picture a racial element, it is also true that blacks and Hispanics and college graduates and young people and women and those groups that have most supported Obama have fared the WORST under his failed policies.  It’s almost as if Obama is saying, “I hurt you bad these last four years; vote for me again and I will finish you off and kill you dead in my next four years.”  And his supporters are saying, “Thank you, messiah!  It’s what we deserve!”

If the media fairly and accurately reported the truth, Obama wouldn’t have a chance.  But our media has descended into shocking levels of dishonest propaganda.  And bad people always choose to believe lies.  And if there are more bad people than good people now in America, we will vote for hell and we will get the hell that we voted for once and for all this time.

Things are also going terribly for Europe.  If America goes, Europe goes, and vice versa.

And if you look at China, things aren’t going nearly as well (see also here) as the false facade that they – like the Obama media – have plastered over their “news” coverage.  And if China goes down hill, well, whose going to keep buying our increasingly worthless debt???

This world has chosen socialism; and socialism is a cancer.  It is a cancer on morality and it is a cancer on economic health.  When people say as a nation that they deserve other people’s money and that they are willing to attack job creators to rob them, you get fewer and fewer jobs and all that really gets “redistributed” is pain and misery.

So the beast is coming.  As I’ve said over and over and over again on this blog.

If Obama is president on January 20, 2013, we’re going to get the beast in short order; if Romney is president, we may have a few more years as he slows (but does not stop) the collapse.

Mitt Romney may well win.  But what has he shown in his past that indicates that he will stand up and fight for the radical changes this nation will need to survive?  Obviously, I hope I’m wrong in my estimation of Romney; I hope that he wins and that his is the “second Reagan presidency” we so desperately need.  And as I’ve said before I would crawl out of my death-bed across broken glass to vote for Mitt Romney and vote OUT Obama.

America could very well collapse in the next few years.  When it happens it will happen fast; “economic experts” will assure the people on the mainstream media that everything will be fine the evening before, and then the people will wake up to find out that their country has literally collapsed under their feet while they slept.  But when I consider the structural, fiscal, economic realities facing America, I simply cannot understand how it could possibly survive for 20 years given our pathological refusal to rise up and solve our problems in the powerful manner that we need in order to have any chance at long-term national survival.

I believe that a true conservative president and a true conservative Congress could stop the collapse by having the courage to ignore the media lies and doing what is necessary to save America.  But I also believe that American people are now past the point where they are willing to do the right thing even to save their own lives.  Instead, we’ll keep voting ourselves more benefits until we reach the collapse-stage that Europe is in, and then we’ll riot over the necessary austerity measures that would take away some of our benefits.  Until the depression when nation after nation collapses into total anarchy as Revelation chapter 6 describes and the beast comes riding in.

When the beast takes over the government, he will be a man who seems to have all the answers.  His policies will seem to take the world back from the brink that failed leaders like Obama brought us to.  But in just a few years, the Antichrist will go from promising a Utopia to delivering a literal hell on earth.  And when the REAL Messiah, Jesus Christ, returns as King of kings and as Lord of lords as the Bible describes, it will be to prevent the planet from literally destroying itself.

That’s the direction I will be taking this blog in.  While I will continue to interact with current political events, it will largely be as part of an effort to inform readers about the message of Bible prophecy and how the events we keep seeing are bringing the world closer and closer to the last days scenario so accurately foretold in Scripture.  In addition to that, I will also simply be returning more to my Christian theology roots and writing about the faith.

As a student and teacher of Bible prophecy, I DO believe in what is frequently derided as “newspaper prophecy.”  That is, I believe that when the events described in Bible prophecy are fulfilled, they will be fulfilled in a way that a person at the time would read in a good newspaper.  The thing is, if you don’t understand the Bible, and economics, and politics, and military issues, you will most likely use the wrong newspaper and thus get your understanding of prophecy wrong.  As a simple illustration of what I’m trying to convey here, consider that many people believed during World War I and World War II that they were living in the last days when (as we obviously know now) they weren’t.  On the one hand, it was true that somebody during those periods could have read their Bible and read their newspapers, and seen things in their newspapers that very much seemed to be described in their Bibles.  But on the other hand, there was one singularly critical event that had not yet happened – the rebirth of the state of Israel as prophesied in Ezekiel 37 – that should have told believers that, no, they were not yet in the last days.  The Tribulation described in Revelation begins with the nation of Israel signing a 7-Year peace covenant with the Antichrist.  And since Israel did not yet exist during World War I or World War II, a biblically-understanding Christian could know that as bad as things were, we were not yet in the last days.  You need to be able to understand your Bible and match it to the what is going on in the world to accurately understand where we are in Bible prophecy.

At the same time, you need to be able to understand what is going on in the world and then match it to the Bible to understand where we are in Bible prophecy, as well.  For example, Christian scholar Dr. Grant Jeffrey wrote a book titled, Final Warning: Economic Collapse and the Coming World Government.  Chapter 14 of that book was titled, “The Coming Economic Collapse.”  And writing back in 1995, the man just nailed the 2008 collapse – which is by no means finished with us.  He understood that the dangerous derivatives market and what we were doing with mortgages could trigger a massive collapse just as occurred 13 years later and which is still undermining the economy today (unless you think we’re free and clear and there’s nothing but blue economic skies now).

The world is now a house of cards that could collapse at any time more than it has ever been.  Weapons of mass destruction, modern technology and incredibly complex financial trading did not make the world less like the world described in Revelation; it made it MORE like the world described in Revelation.  Think about the mark of the beast as just one example of what I’m talking about.  The beast is coming and he is coming soon.  And I plan to write a lot more about what the Bible has to say about the last days and why I believe we are in them after this election.

I’m sure I’ll lose some readers as I take this blog in a different direction.  Maybe I’ll lose a lot of readers.  Obviously, I hope I’ll gain other readers, but my primary goal is simply to stand up for my faith and for what I believe and to be true to the vision that I believe God gave me.

  1. FMC Says:

    Michael,

    Thanks for doing your part with this blog over the past four years! You have done a most excellent job. I am really glad that I stumbled onto this great conservative effort a couple-of-years-ago. My only regret is not finding you sooner.

    I can certainly understand your wanting to get out of the political blogging. It definitely is an angry place. There is an old saying that if you wrestle with pigs, you will get muddy. Exposing oneself to this insanity day after day does indeed have its cost. As the election draws closer, I have found myself getting more agitated and angrier – it is taking its toll on me mentally, physically and spiritually, as I contemplate what four more years would look like. I can only imagine how you must feel, considering you post on average a couple of articles per day fighting the demonic, liberal machine, not counting the many hours you must spend thinking about it.

    Anyway, I will certainly look forward to your end-of-days blog. Since I was in Jr. high school, I have had a deep fascination with eschatology and, like you, realize the beast is coming. These are interesting and fearful times…..

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    FMC,

    Thank you very much, brother. I have appreciated your comments every time you have left them; it’s ALWAYS important to know that there are others fighting with you and even FOR you. And you have.

    I am not “fearful” about this election. I recognize that the Bible is clear: the beast is coming. And I realize the beast is right around the corner. If Obama wins it will be a signal to truly begin getting my spiritual house in order because we will truly begin racing toward the collapse Revelation 6 describes.

    No, the word I would use is “hopeful.” I am hoping that Romney is able to pull this election out and give America more time before the full weight of more than eighty years of liberal (read as “socialist”) policies drag us down to hell.

    I won’t be completely abandoning politics; but it will no longer be my driving focus. I’m thinking about having a post once a week or so that simply provides a key excerpt from several articles with a few lines of comment about what is happening.

    On my view, in order to understand eschatology, you MUST understand the Bible. But if your entire expertise is the Bible, you’re going to still have a problem: because you’ve GOT to understand what is going on in the world politically, economically and strategically in order to be able to accurately perceive how the Bible relates to the real world. I gave the example of the mark of the beast: if you read Revelation and then understand the move toward a cashless society and the move toward microchip implants to prevent fraud, and realize that without cash and with the ability of a government to literally monitor every single transaction as this microchip technology would allow, you realize exactly what the mark of the beast will be and you also see how incredibly close to it that we are.

    Your last words reflect my thoughts as well. Other than living in the time of Christ, this is the most exciting time to be alive in all of human history: we can literally WATCH THE BIBLE COME ALIVE AS WORDS RECORDED EVEN OVER THREE THOUSAND YEARS AGO ARE FULFILLED. Interesting times, indeed.

    I believe in the rapture of the saints. But along with you, I also see fearful times. I have come to realize that America could collapse economically and we could well live in the ruins of what used to be a great nation for YEARS before the Antichrist shows up. And in the same way, it could be YEARS between the coming collapse and the rapture. While I pray that is not the case, the Bible NEVER tells us that believers will be spared the wrath of man. So fearful times indeed, as well.

    Ultimately, we know that God knows the future as well as He knows the past and the present. And we know that God has a plan for this world and for each of His people. And we know that ultimately, when we’re with Christ in heaven, we’ll know that God took care of us and that He will ALWAYS take care of us.

    It will be nice to take my focus off of the enemy and put it where it most truly belongs.

  3. HL Says:

    Michael, you have been faithful and done a stellar job in documenting the truth about what has been happening in America the past several years since Obama showed up on the scene. Well done.

    I truly pray you find more peace in the days ahead.

    Your friend,
    HL

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    I most certainly hope that we have a new president in 2012, but either way, I AM looking forward to “changing the subject” to what God has to say in His Word, and to shift focus off of the false messiah and onto the Real One.

    By way of analogy, I used to be a soldier and I saw some action. But I retired from the military disabled. When the troops went into Iraq, I wanted to be there with them like an old crippled dog still wants to be out on the job with his master, but I of course knew that it was time to hand the ball to these magnificent young people.

    There are people who are energized by politics; they can spend an enitire career in poilitcs and relish the constant fighting and infighting and arguing. And, if they’re conservatives, God bless them for it. Not so me. I simply felt like it was something that I had to do. I’ve spent the last five years warning people about Obama; and at this point if they reelect him, hell is coming and I’ve warned folk more than enough about that hell.

    I am very hopeful that Romney will be elected president; particularly after last night. But either way, it is time to shift off of the little antichrist that Obama has been and focus on the big Antichrist who is coming.

    I have truly appreciated your friendship and support, HL, because when you’ve got a bunch of enemies dumping on you, it is always very nice indeed to look up and see a friendly face.

    Your friend also,
    Michael

  5. Ella Brand Says:

    I’m astonished that you, a Christian, has no problem endorsing a man that belives that Jesus and Satan are brothers. He’s basically a Baal worshipper. Why would Obama be leading the way to the anti-christ and not Romney. They serve the same demonic system. Wickedness in high places as they say. Why on earth do you think that man has your back? Do you know what evil you have to be involved in to be a Bishop in the Mormon church.

    The Bible says we are to look up for our redemption draweth nigh. If Jesus comes back, rejoice and don’t be bitter. Pray that God’s will be done.

    I’m disappointed in you…

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Ella Brand,

    Your disappointed in me? Am I supposed to feel bad? Lady, I DON’T EVEN KNOW YOU!

    Could you please show me in your Bible where it says we should encourage homosexuality, Ella? Just tell me the book and the chapter and the verse where God loves sodomy. You know, since you want to mention the Bible while you condemn me, you might as well actually turn to it and try to read it.

    I can find you quite a few that state rather conclusively that abortion is an abomination. Not that YOU apparently give a damn what the Bible actually says.

    How about abortion. Your Obama and everyone who thinks like him is responsible for 55 million murdered innocent human beings.

    Here’s a passage from that Bible you are way too ignorant about, Ella:

    For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. — Psalm 139:13-16

    Here’s another one for your consideration:

    When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! — Luke 1:42

    Let me put it to you straight, Ella: YOU personally are guilty of 55 million murders. YOU PERSONALLY have murdered 55 million innocent babies. Because you champion abortion, you champion infanticide. And you dare to condemn Mitt Romney???

    A 15 or 16 year old girl named Mary decided to exercise the right to choose that you insisted she have, Ella, and she had an abortion. She wasn’t married and was very reasonably concerned that she would be in a lot of trouble and might even be killed if this pregnancy were discovered. Of course, the baby she murdered with your help was Jesus. Which is to say that your Jesus died miserably in the womb; whereas MY Jesus was born to live and ultimately to die in my place because unlike you, I don’t champion baby murdering abortionists.

    Jesus talked about a wise man counting the cost: but your fool has exploded the national debt by 60% in only four years.

    One last thing, you judmental hypocrite. I actually wrote about Mitt Romney and Christianty. I address Romney’s Mormonism directly:

    Mitt Romney should not try to convince evangelicals – who know better – that he is a Christian just like they are. He simply isn’t; Mormonism has a very different understanding of the Person and Work of Jesus Christ than do orthodox, Trinitarian, evangelical Christians.

    If Mitt Romney tries to tell evangelicals that Mormonism – which holds that “God” Himself was merely once a created being (punting on the question of who created our particular “God”), and that this same “God” who was Himself created then later created Christ who is only an angel (and in fact the spirit brother of Lucifer the devil) – is no different from evangelical Christianity, he will do nothing more than offend us and actually LOSE our vote.

    Maybe you should read it before you demonize me with your tirade.

    But I also describe the true nature of Obama’s “salvation” in his own words:

    “… working on issues of crime and education and employment and seeing that in some ways certain portions of the African American community are doing as bad if not worse, and recognizing that my fate remain tied up with their fates, that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country.

    Is that YOUR theology, Ella? Do you reject personal salvation the way Obama does? Do you believe in a Marxist “collective” (as in “collectivist”) salvation in place of the very crystal clear teaching of Scripture???

    Why does Romney’s Mormonism bother you so much and Obama’s Marxist psuedo-Christian liberation theology heresy doesn’t??? Why doesn’t your skull explode from trying to contain all the obvious contradictions??? Because the bottom line is that not only is Obama’s “Christianity” EVERY bit as heretical as Romney’s, but Romney doesn’t fall prey to all the issues I just cited above along with a number of others I can easily think of.

    I’m not “disappointed” in you because I don’t even know who you are. But what I CAN tell you is that your “Christianity” which champions the murder of 55 million innocent human babies while celebrating homosexuality and sodomy has very little to do with the Bible.
