Is your heart saddened by the events that have taken place and are taking
place in Washington, D.C. and Iraq this week?
Mine is. The fact Bill Clinton has decided to bomb the Iraqi people
now after eight years of waiting is not only beyond my comprehension, but makes
me not only very sad, but righteously angry. I can tell you this. God is not happy
with what Bill Clinton is doing and, because of that, we can't be happy. The Holy
Father is not happy. Those who uphold the sanctity of life cannot be happy.
Bill Clinton grew up in a generation that coined the phrase, "Make love, not war!"
His definition of both is not God's definition nor mine. He has consistently disregarded
the virtue of chastity and war is his choice only when it is expedient. It surely was
not back when he was draft eligible and he showed his craftiness and elusive nature
that is so evident today by avoiding the military like a plague. Now he's willing to
sacrifice our troops for his own hide. I'm sorry but the notes are totally flat and
any kind of justification for aggressiveness now falls on its clef.
Before Wednesday's "Pearl Harbor" by Clinton, all the focus was on his inevitable
impeachment. With this action he took it shows he is trying to divert attention away from
his own situation, a smokescreen if you will. I, for one, am not going to be fooled by this
and I choose to focus on the real problem. I'd like to address a few thoughts on the on-going struggle
between party lines, the White House, the Congress, and we, the people of
My dear friends, it appears to me that the entire matter of impeachable
offenses committed by William Jefferson Clinton are in reality very simple
to decide, and not nearly as complicated as the on-going debate has been in
legal circles and now before the House Judiciary Committee, and now to the
full House and possibly the Senate.
First, there is only one Truth and that is God, who gave to all mankind
the Truth evidenced first in the Ten Commandments, and then more thoroughly
expressed by His Only-Begotten Son Jesus Christ. We are a Christian
nation. It doesn't matter how many immigrants have come to our shores
espousing another faith. Our Constitution is based on Christian
principals. End of discussion.
God's Truth is Eternal. God also charged us with making our laws guided
by His Commandments, and abiding by them in order for our country, our
state, and our town to live morally just lives as He commands.
Now, our laws, framed by the Constitution must be in accordance with God's
Everlasting Law if we are to obey them. For the most part, the laws are,
although in the last thirty years, the laws passed by our Congress are
edging further from the Truth than ever before. This point
notwithstanding, it is God's Will that we, His children, obey the law of
our nation, etc., provided that law does not contradict His Law.
An example of this would be the passing of a law (such as has been done in
China) whereby a married couple would be forbidden by law to have more than
one child, and would be ordered by law to be sterilized or imprisoned if
the married couple do not comply with this one-child per couple law. If
that were to happen, we would not have to obey that law, and would, in
fact, offend Almighty God by sin if we did abide by it.
Therefore, the simplicity of the case against William Jefferson Clinton
boils down to clear-cut facts. First, William Jefferson Clinton and his wife are both lawyers. Law
school requires a matter of intelligence, and no one passes who has not
grasped the content of the law as set forth in the Constitution. Secondly,
no one passes the bar exam if they are stupid or ignorant.
Secondly, William Jefferson Clinton knew, consciously, what he was doing
when he engaged in an extra-marital affair with Monica Lewinsky. He took a
calculated risk by carrying on this affair. It was calculated because of
the office he held, that office being the highest in this nation. With the
highest office comes an extraordinary amount of power. Clinton relied upon
his office and its customary power to conceal his affair. He counted on
it. He counted on his staff and on Monica Lewinsky. His mistake (if one
could call it that) was not silencing Monica before she could speak out
publicly. Check his record and you'll find that he's very good at
"silencing" those who, in the past, could and would have exposed him for
what he truly represents.
Thirdly, when Monica went public and the calculated risk of keeping the
affair underwraps was torn to shreds, Clinton chose, with another
calculated risk, to use the popular opinion of the American people and the
power of his office, to mislead, lie, to lie under oath, to conceal, to set
up roadblocks that would have allowed the truth to surface. I don't know
about you, but to have anyone look me in the eye (as Clinton did on
television), and lie to my face is abhorrent at least, and impeachable
above all. That a liar is the moral representative of our country should
make all of us sad, and justifiably angry before God and our own Constitution.
Fourth, Clinton knew the law very well. He counted upon his knowledge of
the law to manipulate the truth to his own favor, and to mislead us, to
mislead the Congress, to mislead the world. In addition, to tell the
truth, Clinton is one of the best liars I've ever heard or seen. It's
shocking to realize how good he is at lying.
When, however, the majority of the House of Representatives began to probe
deeper, (and, yes, it is political), Clinton consciously chose to continue
to lie, to lie under oath, to connive, to manipulate, to threaten
witnesses, to use all of the power of his office to get the "opposition" to
back down, to lay off, to forget the whole mess. Clinton did this not only
before a grand jury, but he did it to us, to you and to me, and to be less
than outraged by this means we've lost our sense of morality and of virtue,
our Godliness, our Christianity, our knowledge that we are all responsible
before God and man for our virtue, or lack thereof.
Forget the rhetoric that seems endless on Capitol hill. The news media,
as well as Congress, and the president (please note the small "p" for
president), are using us as a ratings source. They, as a whole, are
playing to the crowd…and hoping to justify, rationalize and manipulate us
into whatever "they" think is right or wrong.
I'm sorry to have to tell them this, but the truth is that what Clinton
did and is doing is wrong, both before God, and before us, and he, who
leads this country, does not defend and uphold the constitution, as he
swore to do, but he has abused it.
To abuse the Constitution upon which this nation was founded is an
impeachable offense. To state, as many democrats and liberal republicans have that impeachment
would bring this country into a state of chaos is ridiculous in the
extreme. The Constitution provides for a system of checks and balances
(Government 101 for those who remember high school and college, not to
mention the sound teachings of our elementary years). To seek to justify
Clinton's actions and deeds in any other direction is nothing more than a
ploy, political at best, and plain stupid at worst, and is offensive before
My dear brothers and sisters, the Truth is plain and simple. Do you want
an adulterer, a liar, one who does not uphold and honor our Constitution
and its laws, leading our nation?
I do not. I am appalled by the thought, and until justice is served, I am
not proud to be an American, regardless of party or politics. I am God's
child, and my first and prominent duty is to God, and then to my country.
When the man-made laws of my country are bandied about as is being done now
on Capital Hill to seek not what is best for the nation before God, but for
the individual and his or her political party is reprehensible.
The sad fact is that in asking myself "Just how stupid does Clinton and
our elected officials think the American people are?" I have to answer in
honesty, "Pretty stupid."
Doesn't say much, does it, about the moral decline of this country.
Yes, I pray every day for Clinton, his family, and this country as a
whole. I pray that God, in His Mercy, will restore America to that sense
of morality and virtue, which would shine as a beacon of His Light to the
Until we get our collective act together and seek "true" justice before
God and for ourselves as a nation, God is sad, God is not pleased with us.
If we really want to see God's Justice served upon us as a nation, then we
will sit back, watch the "show", and say nothing.
I, for one, don't intend to do that. I intend to pray, and then to let
all the world know, in whatever way I am capable, that I do not condone,
justify or rationalize Clinton's actions and deeds. I, for one, through my
one small voice, intend to let my elected representatives know that I
expect them to live up to the Constitution, and to the moral tenants upon
which this country was founded, and that I am sick and tired of the endless
words that seek to create a "gray" area, when there isn't a "gray" area in
the whole matter. Truth is truth, and will not be denied, no matter how
hard we try. God knows the truth. Nothing is going to change that. God
expects us to stand up for the Truth.
Let us, as Christmas approaches, pray that true justice will be served,
and that in bring true justice to bear, God will, in His Mercy, allow our
nation to rise again into the Light of His Truth and be to the world the
Light we were founded to be.
