If crisis is a means by which Democrats achieve their political ends — and it is; just think of their famous “never let a crisis go to waste” playbook — then imagine what coronavirus means to the globalists.
What a dizzying opportunity for them to achieve massive goals.
This is new world order time — one world order time, in the teachings of the Bible believers.
Not only is America’s economy crashing. Not only have the world’s producers come to a grinding halt. But citizens are in fear. They don’t know who or what to believe. They’re hunkering in homes, at government’s order. Police are in the streets, enforcing quarantines.
Churches have closed their doors — some of ‘em, because they face the threat of fines and court action if they don’t.
Savings accounts and 401(k)s are being depleted by the day.
Beaches are closed, as are public parks.
“L.A. sheriff orders all gun stores closed amid coronavirus shutdown,” The Los Angeles Times reported.
Second Amendment rights are in jeopardy.
Wall Street profits are tumbling. Jobless claims are skyrocketing. Congress is being called to act and act quickly to pass legislation that bails out business, doles out checks, saves the citizens who find themselves in sudden positions of unemployment. And when President Donald Trump dares to suggest the obvious — that America needs to get back to work, get back in business, get back into the game of life?
There are oh-so-plenty of leftist, anti-Trump, even anti-American forces and sources ready to jump down his throat, to rail against his leadership.
Politically speaking, coronavirus is proving a great tool for the left.
The Democrats, with their pitifully poor presidential pick of Joe Biden, know a good crisis when they see one. So do their mouthpieces in the media, who scream at every turn about the potential of millions of lives to be saved if only Americans would quarantine — hoping listeners don’t realize the silliness and scientific unsoundness of such claims. How to prove those numbers? How to prove, for example, shutting down beaches and parks saves lives — any lives, never mind a set, specific, finite number of lives? Really, how to arrive at any statistical truth when the numbers are constantly changing? After all, a 2% amid the storm can change into a 0.5% when the storm clouds clear — can change into a 0.0005% when the dust settles and the final numbers are actually counted, in context of the whole.
Shh, shh, don’t ask. Shh, shh, don’t question.
Shh, shh — we’re from the government and we’re here to help.
And therein lies one of the biggest problems with this coronavirus craze — the inability for the average citizen to discern what’s truth versus what’s hyperbole. Because the Democrats, with their “never let any crisis go to waste” mindset, underscored by Nancy Pelosi’s recent try at padding the coronavirus bill with all kinds of far left ridiculous wish-list items, sure do know how to wax hyperbolic when necessary. They sure do know how to grab attention and drum up the panic, when politically expedient, that is.
And just think: All the more so the global forces who would seek to strip America of all greatness, redistribute U.S. wealth to the world’s poorest nations, implement a one currency system that can be controlled by a select few, and design a total top-down approach to governing that melds borders and cultures into one. Oh, and yes, don’t forget — that wipes out any religion that interferes with worship of the government.
A new world order. A one world order.
Biblically speaking, this will come.
“[A]bout that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father,” the Gospel of Mark states.
Right. Time will tell. Nobody else will.
But isn’t it interesting that the coronavirus is currently stripping Americans of their freedoms to assemble, freedoms to worship in church, freedoms to buy and sell, freedoms to exercise their Second Amendment rights, freedoms to live a life unfettered by a growing burdensome government?
It’s a temporary situation, no doubt. With Trump in charge, it’s almost definitely a temporary situation.
But one day — and on this, bet the farm — it won’t be. And that right there is the real take-away lesson for this coronavirus age.
