Obama Era is Over.

Tom's Journal.

Happy Cold Sunday,  Friends !
     Once upon a time, I asked God for a few things in my life time that I thought I wanted.   I remember and also thank a pretty lady who used to live in Racine, WI., and she helped me out in a large way, with just a few pearls of wisdom-- also letting me rent a room from/ in  her big house..................  until I finally got called back  to my good paying job at  Chrysler-- in Kenosha, WI., and then I was rich again....LOL.   But I tried to help her out too and rewarded her. 
       But, some folks like M.E. are just good, normal, Christians, who try to get ahead, but they never get too rich and famous, but they
 have some good times and raise their families, and if they know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior,  they are blessed and know where they will find their just reward when they die, or get Raptured.   That lady's name is Mary Ellen H., and I figure that I owe her a lot for helping me exit a certain false religious  cult......and get back on the right track, and in God's favor.  Thank You,  M.E.  ! She used to say,  "Be careful what you wish for   ----  because you just might get it !"   We met and also worked for the same great Financial Company and learned a lot,  but we didn't get rich.   I thought that she was beautiful and smart, but sometimes misdirected,  but who really knows what's what until the 'fat lady sings,' and we are too old to enjoy life so much in our older years of aches and pains.    There is still some time yet,  before we die, and that then ends the last  chapter of our earthly life,   and then it's all up to the Big Judge in Heaven.   Really !   That is, for sure, the sum total of what we all did on earth...  everything.   And there are also many normal, humble people that don't achieve too much in their lives -- except that they made perhaps ONE special contact--- sharing   the "Message of the Gospel,"  to one 'wild Tiger.'    And that new person is like a great horse that takes the bit in his teeth and runs like the wind and also wins all kinds of glory, records, helps so many other people, drawing them to Christ,   and does so much for so many ! !    And there is the beauty of it all, folks !   Thank GOD that there were a select few, precious humans in my life that were like Mentors to me, and helped 'show me the way !!'   I surely see and know a sense of gratitude and love for them !!  And the need to 'carry on the torch of light and mercy.'   Actually,  I am doing part of that duty RIGHT NOW !   Smile.   Believe it or not,  we were all born with some sort of 'gift' --- but most of us just don't USE it !   Or, we use it NOT for the glory of God for what ever goofy reason !   Shame !   Be it cowardice or laziness,  who knows...

We were ALL put on this earth for SOME special reason, with special talents, skills, capabilities, strengths....   but who really knows what we will produce -- if anything !  
     We have so many so-called 'masters' and book writers and motivational speakers who are paid a fine dime to talk, train, and motivate.   But no matter what THEY CLAIM to be the number one thing....  about the definition of "power," -----  it's:  Action,  that really defines power !   All the knowledge, smarts, education, good looks, etc., won't get anything done if you don't harness ACTION.   Kick it in the ass, and sooner or later, you prob will succeed in getting what you want  --- especially if it's God's Will, and right.   And that is also what I learned at PFS Investments / Finance.  
       A nice wife can secretly buy the greatest tower of tools for her dear hubby for Christmas,  but if the never takes them out into his own two hands,  what good are they ??   So too,  if a human being stands or sits in a church every week end,  that no more makes him/ her a Christian -- than standing in a garage makes them a car !!  Hello !    People can SAY anything or promise what ever,  but if they don't move off their behind -- what good are they ?   The Holy Spirit can and does motivate true Christians [not fake/ plastic/ false Christians..] who have sacrificed hours of precious time in deep Bible study --- to take  ACTION !   The words just jump out of our mouths, correctly and almost perfectly.   But first you have to put the KNOWLEDGE and Wisdom of the KJV Bible into your HEAD !!  Think !  How can the Spirit draw out info from your head --- if your head is empty ???    And... when someone tells you that the Bible is all messed up, or a bunch of wild stories, or incorrect, a pack of fairy tales ---- that only means that they NEVER read the entire book, or they never had the Holy Spirit helping them understand it, or a 'bad, dishonest heart !'   Sorry, folks,  that's just the bare Truth !   And so the Bible says:   "Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers."   And, I found out the hard way.... "marry only in the Lord."   ---That means:  marry only true Believers in Christ !   And,  anyone who abandons, ends, quits,  or sabotages a Christian marriage for other reasons besides ADULTRY is committing a HUGE Sin,  and they will certainly answer to God for that action !!  And if the woman ends up poor from that ungodly breaking of  her marriage vows ---I would think that is part of her punishment, too ! !  That surely goes for the man, too.

     And so the author of the short, fine article down below makes a good point about the 'dung heap' that only draws flies... the goof at the WH, who somehow snuck in... and he and his 'partner' can also sneak OUT !   Do you think that he will enjoy his ill-gotten gain $$$ ?

Let me tell you all a big SECRET about a past mayor of Chicago, IL, USA.   Chi-Town was governed by the super powerful Mayor Daily [Sp?] for many years and that town was steeped in tons of political corruption and dark goings on... and the Black folks always thought they got a raw deal [and maybe they did !].  So... by some strange miracle a Black Mayor was elected, named,  Harold Washington, and people thought that things would really change for the better.   Well... things DID change, for sure !!   Instead of White crooks,  now they had Black crooks and political favors,  super corruption, etc.   Do you see what I mean ?  The beat just keeps going on, no matter who is calling the shots !  And that is mainly why I so loved the book of Ecclesiastes, talking about the reality under the sun... that nothing changes in life.   God righteous standards don't change either.... no matter what a Gov't, Land, Nation, Society does, legist rates, passes, enables, writes, rules.    If a country was to say that abortion, adultery, homosexuality, rioting, is all legal,  OK,  that still doesn't make it RIGHT in the eyes of God,  and people are going to learn that hard fact, sooner or later.... and my humble thinking is 'sooner !'  

If people THINK that they can somehow come in 'under the wire,'  LOL,  forget it !   Do they really think that they can pull a fast one on GOD ??   ...duh.   And all the lies that our world wide Governments pass out like candy, and the 'whore Medias',  will suddenly have a powerful flood light shown on them.   You see, that is what I love about Mr. Trump... he loves to show the powerful Light on liars and pigs [corrupt, lying, people].

Can you just imagine that God sees all the horrible things going on  earth --- that all the heathen, Islamists, Illegal Aliens,  are being bussed into our country at night by the thousands,  while Christians in Africa and Asia are being butchered like cattle by ISIS --- plus Obama and Hilly  [sic] were supporting, arming and paying ISIS from the get-go ??  How is it that they were not brought to justice yet.... while most of Congress knows about all this crap... but turns their heads away in shame ! ?   Those Martyred Christian brothers and sisters are all counted heroes in God's eyes, and there will be an accounting for them.   I have a very strong, real, fear of the Lord.   I may have a hard head, and perhaps not the sharpest knife in the drawer,  but I learn.   We all need to not only learn  --- but to ACT, now !   ACTION,  not words !

You may say:  Act how.   First:  Pray, ask forgiveness and ask Jesus to be in your heart and life, from now on, forever.   2nd:   Get a good copy of the KJV or NASB Bible, large print and read all the Gospel accounts, plus the book of Romans.  Then try to find a "Bible -preaching/ teaching church in your area,  but maybe you cannot find one.... so contact 2-- different Christian radio stations:  WVCY -Chicago, or Bible Tracts, Inc. and just relax and listen for an hour or two, and find other mature Christians in your area, and pray for God to send you someone to continue your walk in Faith.  

Now,  as I said many times here on my blog/ journal....  I liked and voted for Mr. Trump, even though he is very imperfect and rough around the edges, and I believe that he can and will do many great things to help our country.... if he is not 'taken down'   by his numerous, heathen, world elite, enemies, Libs and Lefties, or Obama purposely starts a war in the few remaining days.... what a puke !     Then,  help other true Christians and band together ---if you can, and keep the Faith.

Here is my email address: 

Friends,  I suppose that many of you, at this point, are kind of bored with my standard "message" on Salvation and Study thumping, so if you have a better idea,  please let me know.   Thanks.

Warm Regards,

The Obama Era is Over
Obama and his supporters loved talking about history. His victory was historic. They were on the right side of history. History was an inevitable arc that bent their way.
The tidal force of demographics had made the old America irrelevant. Any progressive policy agenda was now possible because we were no longer America .  We Were Obamerica. A hip, happening place full of Muslim women in hijabs and transgender actors. We were all going to live in a New York City coffee house, work at Green Jobs and live in the post-national future.
The past was gone. We were falling into the gorgeous wonderful future of dot com instant deliveries and outsourced everything. We would become more tolerant and guilty. The future was Amazon and Disney. It was hot and cold running social justice. The Bill of Rights was done. Ending the First and Second Amendments was just a clever campaign away. Narratives on news sites drove everything.
Presidents were elected by Saturday Night Live skits.
John Oliver, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee were our journalists. Safe spaces were everywhere and you better watch your micro-aggressions, buddy. No more coal would be mined. No more anything would be made. 
The end of men was here. The end of the dead white men of the literary canon. The end of white people. The end of binary gender and marriage. The end of reason. The end of art. The end of 2 + 2 equaling 4. This was Common Core time. It was time to pardon an endless line of drug dealers. To kill cops and praise criminals. To be forced to buy worthless health insurance for wealth redistribution to those who voted their way to wealth. 
This was Obama's America . And there was no going back. We were rushing through endless goal posts of social transformation. The military fell. Then the police. Now it looks as quaint as anything from the 50s, the 70s or the 80s. A brief moment of foolishness that already appears odd and awkward. And then one day nostalgic. It wasn't the future. It's already the past. It's history.
Scalia died. Hillary Clinton was bound to win. And she would define the Supreme Court. Down-ticket races would give her a friendly Senate. And then perhaps even the House.
But there is no right side of history. There is only the side we choose. The Obama era was permanent. It was history.
Now it is history.
It‘s shocking ascendancy has been paired with an equally shocking descent. The Obama era is done. It's gone.   It's over. It was wiped from the pages of history in one night that left Congress and the White House in Republican hands.
It would have been bad enough if Jeb Bush had succeeded Obama. That would have been inconvenient, but not a repudiation. Instead Obama's legacy was dashed to pieces. His frantic efforts to campaign for Hillary did no good.  The public did not vocally reject him. What they did was even worse. They brushed past him. They sidelined him. They gave him passable approval ratings while dismissing his biggest accomplishments. They forgot him. They made it clear that he did not matter. 
And that is in its own way far more brutal and wounding. They didn't just destroy the Obama era.  Instead they dismissed it as if it never existed.
Obama didn't make history after all. He wasn't a teleprompter demi-god standing athwart of history. He was Carter and Ford. He was there to be forgotten. He didn't change the world. He wasn't the messiah. He was merely mortal. Just another politician who will sag and age. Who will, in the end, be photographed like Bill Clinton, lonely and lost  in a world that has passed him by.
The Obama era ends not with a bang, but with a whimper. With a national consensus that maybe he didn't really matter so much after all. And those to whom he mattered the most were his enemies determined to undo everything he did.
Obama once thought that he belonged to the ages. Now he belongs in the rubbish bin.
