A Solomonesque Dilemma...
Saw the U.S. in Half?
October 21, 2008
In Biblical times, King Solomon was renowned for his wisdom, his advice sought after by ordinary folks and royalty alike. He also wrote Songs of Solomon, which expressed exquisite sentiments of love between a man and a woman. But he was probably best known – and remembered to this day – for his masterful job in ferreting out a liar who claimed to be the mother of a baby that was not hers.
In his famous ruling, he ordered that a baby of disputed maternity should be cut in half and that one half be given to each of the two women who claimed to be the child’s mother. The real mother immediately agreed to give up her child rather than seeing him destroyed. That was enough proof for King Solomon to determine which woman had actually given birth to the baby. While skillfully exposing the other woman as a villain who had not a trace of maternal instinct running through her callous veins, he returned the baby to its rightful mother.
What does this story have to do with these modern times? Think of the United States as the child, and the competing forces seeking to mold it as the two mothers fighting for its possession. In one corner, we have Democrats, Republicans, and Independents united in their love of country. Some of them have been described as "clinging to God and guns.” Many of these citizens send their sons and daughters to bleed and die in remote spots on earth, in order to protect the land they love. They may not always possess great material wealth, but their worth can be measured in the intangibles of respect, devotion, and fealty, shared with even the proverbial stranger at the gate. Their wealth is reflected in the lives that they have touched for good.
In the other corner are the faux "mothers,” who are intent on destroying the U.S., even if they end up with a corpse for a country. Many have succeeded in accumulating a huge number of "in God we trust” bills, which they’ve used to clobber God and the rest of His creation. They have become demigods in their own eyes, and in the eyes of the sycophants that surround them.
President Lincoln could have been speaking directly to them when he said in his Gettysburg address: "A house divided against itself cannot stand." But they are so clueless that the profundity of those words escapes them. Even King Solomon would have counseled them that a corpse – or more accurately, half a corpse – is definitely not better than a whole live body, but they would not have listened.
today, as the presidential election of 2008 draws closer, another "cut
the baby in half” scenario is about to unfold before our eyes. We have
no current influential and wise King Solomon, and so the
U.S. could end up on the butcher block.
To be sure, we do have a "king” among us, even if only in his own mind. And while he has the kingly riches to buy and sell people – and elections? – he has none of King Solomon’s wisdom. Rather this "king” gives us every indication that he has been inspired by the faux mother of King Solomon’s days. His name is George Soros. Ironically, he shares a first name with a legitimate King George, he who tried to crush the American colonists a couple of hundred years ago. We all know how that turned out.
This Hungarian-turned-American King George escaped from Hungary about 60 years ago, settled in England, then moved in 1956 to the U.S. Along the way, he accumulated massive wealth and promptly repaid England for its hospitality by "breaking the back” of the Bank of England on "Black Wednesday” in 1992.
In America, Soros has been using his seemingly endless supply of money to suppress gun ownership, decriminalize/legalize drugs, push for assisted suicide, back the initiatives of the anti-American, anti-Semitic United Nations, manipulate the media, and support far-left politicians. And an organization he founded, with its maneuvering, has been active in buying the presidency of Georgia. Will the U.S. be next? Soros is so intent on seeing his chosen candidate elected to the presidency that he is apparently intent on operating the power saw himself – even if it means destroying our country.
A few nights ago, a friend sent me an e-mail that said Soros was going to try to bring the U.S. to its knees by causing the dollar to plunge even further than it already has, much as he caused the British pound to be devalued. If this happens, I will know that once again, King George – in his own perverse way – will be repaying yet another country for its hospitality. Say what you will: Soros knows how to repay!
I responded to my friend’s e-mail:
Soros is a pitiful man, rich but pitiful. Obviously, he does not appear to have even a passing acquaintance with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Our God who will not be mocked. Soros and his kind are like the mother in the story in the Bible, in which King Solomon ruled for the real mother over the faux one. Soros and his gang want the baby (the United States) to not only be cut in half, but to be utterly destroyed. Soros’ "repayment" is very peculiar. But, "vengeance is mine," says The Lord. "I will repay."
So, who am I to think that I can talk about King George being "pitiful”? By all measurable standards, especially financial standards, he is mighty. He can "buy and sell” me, and most others, a billion times over. Now he is locked and loaded, and we – Americans who love America, and do not want to see her essence destroyed – are in the crosshairs.
A Calvin Klein ad for jeans, of about two decades ago, had a prepubescent Brooke Shields declaring that "nothing came between” her and her Calvins. All indications seem to be that nothing much stands between King George and his "conquest” of the US. Like those jeans "painted” on model Brooke, King George’s "genes” and agents of destruction are painted on and planted throughout the land. They are like ACORN(S) in the forest, or in and around the polling booths.
Come November 4, 2008, we will see if citizens of the present-day United States remember how another George had his kingly ambitions figuratively blow up on July 4, 1776. My suspicion is that the U.S. is not be ready to be sawed in half, even if the dollar’s back is temporarily "broken.”
Let us listen and heed what President Lincoln intoned in The Gettysburg address” "...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom...and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
From President Lincoln’s lips to God’s ears – this is legitimate hope we can believe in.
