The Eves of Evil!
'I am woman, hear me roar from the depths of hell!' Such is the price for two women who have sold their soul for power!
"Hillary Rodham Clinton and Oprah Winfrey are the new Eves of this garden under siege - the Eves of Evil. Both seek and have obtained unbridled power, influence, control and dominance in their fields. This power has spread across many areas of life to the point that it can truly impact society at large in ways large and small. Both Clinton and Winfrey likewise destroy their foes through their influence as well, trampling any who dare to cross their paths. Both project images of smiling, friendly nobility which mask clear ambition, agendas, and arrogance. In a society so delicately prancing on the precipice of perdition, these two women are poised to push the public off the cliff. In a society so guilelessly grasping toward the grapes of gluttony and sin, these two women are guides inviting their blind followers to taste the fruit of damnation."
Editor's Note: Gabriel Garnica continues his weekly multi-part series which we've dubbed "Incorrigible Dirigibles" in comparing the liberal factions to blimps full of hot air which nevertheless cast a dark shadow over today's values and morals. In the manner of the Tower of Babel-like zeppelin "Hindenburg," so also these pompous, progressive windbags are full of gaseous, nauseous ideas that can be most dangerous if one seeks to hook a ride on such nonsense. In that same vein, they have nowhere to go but down. One must realize they are highly inflammable and the nearer they float toward the fires of hell, the more combustible souls become who are in their path, beneath them, or, God forbid, their passenger. Two of these dangerous windbags mock the first woman Eve with their lust for power and we all know their names for just like Eve, they are one-name feminists: Hillary and Oprah! Madonna could be added to this list, but she has wilted as will the two dangerous women who Gabriel features in today's feature. They will eventually plummet as well. Nevertheless, because of society's penchant for greed and ease, they will follow these two women anywhere, even to the brink of the abyss of eternal perdition. That is why Gabriel pulls no punches in telling it like it is with The Eves of Evil!
Both Scripture and tradition tell us of the importance, and critical role of women in the history of our faith in this world, despite the lies and distortions of feminists and their ilk. If Eve had a prominent role in the sin of Eden, then Our Blessed Mother has a prominent role in the redemption and salvation of Calvary. Certainly the list of important women so central to this journey toward God is quite long, and promises to continue to grow as events unfold. History has proven that women do not surrender any ground to men in faith, courage, devotion, love, and determination. Likewise, they do not surrender ground in cunning, ambition, arrogance, and corruption as well. It is thus that we have arrived at a new Eden, a garden where the beauty and majesty of God's creative power is still evident, but where the dark temptation of sin is all too real and dangles ready for our misguided grasp. It is here that we find not one, but two new Eves, ready to coax us toward perdition. So cunning and treacherous is the serpent here, that it attacks us from the same source, yet from apparently completely diverse directions. Despite this, make no mistake, both Eves come from evil and both will lead us toward that evil!
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Anyone who doubts the political power of this woman is either in denial or blind. Just look at how she turned the Clinton Administration into a partnership in every sense of the word. Many observers argue that her husband was a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 as a threat because he obviously had weaknesses and was willing to compromise at times. However, those same observers give Hillary a 10 citing her cold, calculating, focused, and vicious ability to get what she wants at any cost. Shredding the façade of Presidential wife, she has now set herself on a course toward what she really wants…the unabashed mantle of power itself. So cunning and sinister is this woman that she has already began to transform her public persona from an ardent liberal to a moderate on many fronts, including abortion. Observers cite that Hillary has calculated that this is the only way she can win the prize she seeks. Her forces figure that any temporary losses in support from extreme liberals will be nullified by their hatred of conservatives. Even if she angers them to some degree, they will always vote for her anyway over any conservative. Make no mistake about it, this Eve has seen the apple she wants and she is going to do whatever it takes to get it! However, this time, in true feminist style, she will not need a man to get her way!
Clinton's political power easily transforms into media power as well, and this should not surprise any reasonable observer of this society as my previous writings have often pointed out how the media is nothing but a liberal propaganda vehicle anyway. Just look at the uphill battle that Ed Klein as had promoting his book The Truth about Hillary. Despite its impressive sales figures, Klein has been banished from most major television and media programs who answer to Hillary's demands. This persecution against Klein and his book began even before it was released! Consistent with the media's pattern of spinning truth into lies consistent with their agenda, most media outlets and publications are claiming that the book is slipping and on its way down when in fact the opposite is true. Thus we see that Hillary Clinton and her minions can and will impose their will and agenda as needed. Like the serpent tempting with the sweet fruit of power, Hillary Clinton dons the skin she needs to bait enough people to vote for her only to shed that skin once she has successfully sold us the apple of sin.
Clinton's political and social history clearly shows that she is an ardent supporter of everything from abortion, to radical feminism, to sodomite rights, and every other vice of the party of death. However, the recent elections show that the next liberal to get hold of The White House will be one who pretends to be moderate enough to pass the taste test of enough "red states" to win and likely then revert to true liberal, secular leanings. Clinton's supporters blindly and devoutly follow her, and her foes surely respect and fear her power and influence. Hillary Rodham Clinton is clearly one of the new Eves pushing this society toward yet another misguided grope toward perdition!
Time Magazine, obviously a liberal tool, named her one of its 100 most influential artists and entertainers of the last century and described her as a "beacon not solely in the worlds of media and entertainment, but also in the larger realm of public discourse."
This ambitious and talented woman has built a media empire and now sways tremendous power and influence on everything from what people read and eat to what they wear and believe. Many observers note that if Oprah believes it and says so, millions of others will soon believe it as well. When she made a comment about meat and Mad Cow in 1996, cattle prices dropped for two weeks immediately after airing of the show, causing the meat industry to call that event the Oprah Crash of 96. Sued for defamation by that industry, Winfrey emerged untouched and ever more powerful.
Many writers have noted that Winfrey blends spirituality with her views, and dabbles in various New Age and other influences. She frequently cites her "spirit guides" as having led her down the path of success. These guides are supposedly the spirits of slaves who she seeks for wisdom and guidance. The obvious occult influences are too plain to ignore, and the equally dangerous influences on millions need not be repeated.
Like Hillary Clinton, Winfrey sways tremendous power and influence over many fields and many people. Like Clinton, her supporters follow her blindly and her foes walk with caution. Like Clinton, Oprah uses great ability and social savvy as a tool to get what she wants. Like Clinton, she often projects a smiling invitation to the public. Like Clinton, she is clearly an ardent liberal and supports most if not all the typical liberal positions. On the eve of the recent national elections, Winfrey pushed for greater voter registration to "prevent the mistakes of the previous election". She had numerous shows featuring her celebrity friends who wailed how the rights of women were on the verge of being destroyed. I wonder which party Oprah and her friends voted for!
The first Eve convinced her husband to join her against God's Will through a drive for power, influence, and control. Her misguided and confused ambition and her personal agendas and weaknesses combined to concoct an intoxicating brew of perdition and sin. If Adam called her Eve as "the mother of all living", she invited death through her distorted ambition. In the end, Eve ironically brought suffering, pain, and injustice to women and mankind in general even as she sought to be like or above God. It was left for Our Blessed Mother to serve as the true Vehicle and Tool bringing the Redeemer of The World. If The Virgin Mary is our model of what women of God do and how they can make a difference, then Eve was the model of what women who would lead us away from God do and how they can bring perdition.
Hillary Rodham Clinton and Oprah Winfrey are the new Eves of this garden under siege - the Eves of Evil. Both seek and have obtained unbridled power, influence, control and dominance in their fields. This power has spread across many areas of life to the point that it can truly impact society at large in ways large and small. Both Clinton and Winfrey likewise destroy their foes through their influence as well, trampling any who dare to cross their paths. Both project images of smiling, friendly nobility which mask clear ambition, agendas, and arrogance. In a society so delicately prancing on the precipice of perdition, these two women are poised to push the public off the cliff. In a society so guilelessly grasping toward the grapes of gluttony and sin, these two women are guides inviting their blind followers to taste the fruit of damnation.
Make no mistake about it, despite their divergent backgrounds, appearance, and fields, these two women come from the same place. This is a place where personal ambition, beliefs, desires, hopes, and dreams are mixed with liberal, New Age, secular, and feminist flavors. This is a place where religion is used not as a path to the true God, but as a distorted vehicle toward a twisted version of whatever god these women and their ilk choose to promote.
It is both revealing and tragic that a world that gave us Augustine, Aquinas, Teresa of Avila, and Catherine of Siena now are more or less devoid of saints and we are left with the likes of Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey as our "beacons of public discourse". If Eve was the "mother of all living" who helped bring us the death of sin, then Clinton is the "mother of all politics" and Winfrey the "mother of all media" who bring us closer to death's door. If Eve needed Adam to complete the fall from Eden, then neither Hillary nor Oprah need any man to help us completely fall from grace. If Eve covered herself once her sin was complete, then the other two cover themselves to complete their sin.
All three are immediately identified by one word names. All three offer the promise of perdition draped as sweet fruit. All three promote death even as they proclaim life. All three pretend to follow God even as they lead others astray from God. If Eve fell for the demon's deception by falling for the first bait and switch in history, then those who follow Hillary and Oprah and feed them power will suffer a far worse bait and switch with eternal overtones. Like the giddy audiences at Oprah's program that discover a new book, perfume, or car just for being in the crowd, this society will soon discover the "prizes" in store for following the two new, very dangerous Eves of Eden!
Editor's Note: Heaven is once again under attack by those who would seek to ignore and overthrow God's majesty and authority.
