The Embracing of Death in the Cut-throat World of Politics!

The Embracing of Death in the
Cut-throat World of Politics!

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania underwent a political experience unlike any other state during the election process of 2004.

It started prior to the spring primary election in which the focus was quickly centered on pro-abortion Republican Senator Arlen Specter and his challenger, pro-life Republican Congressman Pat Toomey.

It soon became obvious that Specter did not have the election in his hip pocket as had been the case in other elections. Toomey was gaining momentum and significant support.

What to do? Why you call in the "big guns" of course and launch a massive campaign through media outlets. President Bush and Senator Santorum began to go to bat for the beleaguered Specter.

TV ads began to appear in which Pennsylvania Republicans were urged to vote for Specter because he had strong support from the president and fellow Senator, Rick Santorum.

One of the most obnoxious scenes to take place during the spring campaign was a photo taken in Pittsburgh showing Bush in the middle flanked by Specter and Santorum with their clasped hands raised in the air!

Rick Santorum appeared in numerous ads in which he stressed the fact that Arlen Specter was not a "liberal" senator as many had been led to believe. Santorum urged Republican voters to support Specter in the spring primary. If ever the unborn were betrayed (and they have been betrayed many times since the initial betrayal in January 1973) by one who claimed to be their defender, it happened when pro-life Santorum embraced pro-abortion Specter -- nothing less than embracing death itself!

The supposed "strategy" employed in the strong support given to Specter by Bush and Santorum was that the reelection of Specter was crucial due to his seniority in Congress and his assumed "clout!"

There was even the suggestion that he could "deliver" Pennsylvania to Bush in the November 2nd election.

As it turned out, Specter squeaked by with only a few thousand votes in the spring primary and didn't exactly run away with an overwhelming vote against his Democratic opponent on November 2, 2004. Further, he clearly did not "deliver" Pennsylvania for Bush as the state went Democratic in its choice for president!

Specter shortly after the election went on public record as issuing what can be interpreted as nothing less than a warning to President Bush concerning his future judicial nominees, especially those to the Supreme Court. Specter wants no nominees who are definitely pro-life and who would pose a potential threat to Roe v. Wade which opened up the flood gates of mass destruction for millions of unborn children. Note the tally at this point in time!

The reason this is such a critical issue is that Specter is in line to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee -- the outfit that turns thumbs up or thumbs down on presidential nominees for positions on the Supreme Court and other federal judge positions. The Judiciary Committee determines who comes before the U.S. Senate for confirmation.

Arlen's remarks about Bush and future judicial nominees invoked a firestorm of protest. And how did Arlen respond? Why just as any professional and polished politician would -- one who speaks with a very forked tongue -- if what comes out of one fork stirs too much controversy, then you use the other fork -- back track and use a lot of garbled terminology to muddy the water, try to convince people that what you said was not really what you said, and that you are really a good guy and supportive of the president!

And with a smoke screen of that kind, the chances are that unthinking citizens plus a host who simply don't care will eventually cause a roaring fire of protest to become nothing more than fast dying embers!

End result? Arlen will get the cherished plum he has lusted for over the years -- Chairmanship of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee!

George Bush and Rick Santorum may well regret the day that their influence swayed the outcome of the spring primary in Pennsylvania to Arlen Specter's advantage by a few thousand votes. They may discover too late that it would have been far better to have the support of a pro-life junior senator from Pennsylvania than those very hollow and hypocritical claims of support from a pro-abortion Democrat dressed up in Republican clothes who now may hold a position which will be used to block the nomination of every judge who is in favor of protecting the lives and rights of the unborn!

As you know by now, John Kerry, who passionately campaigned for the office of president, failed to win by a few electoral votes and a few million citizen votes on November 2, 2004. Kerry claimed to be "personally" opposed to abortion, but vehemently insisted that if elected, he would insure that a woman's "right to choose" would not be restricted in any way -- his way of saying that if a female wants to destroy her unborn child, she has the "constitutional right" to do so! And many across the country say a hearty "Amen!" to that position. Well, how about taking a look at how many unborn children have been brutally mutilated and murdered in the womb since John Kerry became a U.S. Senator!

As you also know, some time ago we were informed by our political leaders that Saddam Hussein, the brutal dictator of Iraq, had to be removed from power. The U.S. Congress gave support to the president in his insistence that we invade Iraq and take Mr. Hussein down. After the invasion got under way and we eventually moved into "occupation" mode to stabilize Iraq, details came out concerning the incidents of brutaliity, torture, and death of many Iraqi citizens. The number of victims over Hussein's ruthless rule has been estimated to have been as high as 1 million in a nation that has a population of around 25 million or so. An interesting comparison to consider -- the number of unborn victims of mutilation and murder in the United States since we launched a pre-emptive military strike against Iraq -- take a look, if you dare!

But there is something else we need to remember -- that George W. Bush and the Republicans don't seem to be very much disturbed about this toll of victims -- that is, there isn't much of a priority in putting the brakes on the daily destruction of unborn children, although the finger was often pointed toward Saddam as being a brutal dictator etc. As noted above, best estimates on the number of victims under the rule of Saddam & Sons is in the million range -- now what is that figure again of brutally murdered unborn victims in the United States since March 19, 2003? And how about the number of unborn victims since George W. Bush became president?

No, you are mistaken! These were not victims of Saddam & Sons' brutality which took place in Iraq -- the one on the left was not exhumed from a mass grave of murdered victims somewhere in the deserts of Iraq, and the one on the right was not a victim of a beheading incident in some undisclosed terrorist hideout in Iraq -- both of them were victims of the U.S. brand of brutality and murder -- performed by "terrorists" of a different kind -- the kind who wear white coats with the letters M.D. behind their names! Usually we think of those letters as meaning "Medical Doctor" but in this case would it not be more appropriate for the letters to mean "Mad Dog?"

In this connection and for further details on the U.S.A. brand of "terrorists" who operate on a daily basis without hindrance on the soil of our republic see:

Is there anybody in Washington DC (especially among the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial branches of the federal government) listening as we await a most certain response from the Creator of this mighty universe Who has declared He has a special plan and purpose for every conceived human being, including the ones whose mangled remains you just viewed? By the way, what will the "mothers" of those victims say to God when it comes to accountability -- and how about the guys in the white coats who did the deeds -- what do you suppose they will say when they are confronted with the fact that our Creator had a special plan and purpose for those little ones after their birth into the world -- that is, if those births had been permitted to take place!

There are solid reasons to believe that the embracing of death in Washington DC will continue with Arlen Specter's able assistance -- that is, until Almighty God gives clear indication that the senseless destruction of those whom He knows and identifies before conception in the womb has gone on long enough, and now it is time to switch to another means by which He deals with a republic known as the United States of America -- and no, it won't be in the form of the over used and abused phrase, "God bless America!"

A Significant Selah Moment!

O LORD, how long shall I cry, and You will not hear? even cry out to You, "Violence!" And You will not save. Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; there is strife, and contention arises. Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
Habakkuk 1:2-2 (NKJV)

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness....

It is time for You to act, O LORD, for they have regarded Your law as void. Therefore I love Your commandments more than gold, yes, than fine gold! Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way.

Romans 1:18; Psalm 119:126-128 NKJV
