The Republic is Falling. Babylon is next.

So I think I'll just sit back and watch Hillary and The Donald destroy each other
. They've canceled another of my favorite TV shows in favor of ANOTHER "reality" gladiator show. It seems lately it's nothing but shows like Survivor, Naked and Afraid, American Idol, Big Brother and other shows that pit one against another and showcase the wickedness of man's heart. TV reminds me more and more of the Roman Coliseum.

Does any of this seem like history repeating itself to anyone else? The Old Republic is falling and Babylon/Rome is rising to take one more shot at uniting the world under the Dark Lord and his minions. We only have a choice between bad emperors and worse ones. We may stand on the wall and shout a warning. We may defend the breaches, but ultimately Babylon will fall again, tearing out its own throat and dying in a pool of its own blood. We won't need guns or swords or weapons of war. We'll be leaving shortly.

But remember, the Second Coming is a rescue mission not an occupation. When it's done, all that's left is ashes and molten slag for a thousand years. Without God there can be no utopia. Without us here, Earth cannot be rebuilt; life cannot resume for we are the gardeners of Earth. But we will come back. Jerusalem made new will descend and when it is all done and the final judgment settled, God's children will spill out of the 12 gates of the city to plant and build and grow and do mighty things in the Earth that we cannot even now imagine.

We certainly live in interesting times.

More than a year after Mr. Trump's election, I am surprised and pleased that he has, for the most part, hewn to a conservative path and for that I am grateful. His administration is in turmoil, but what did we expect from the star of "The Apprentice" when his catch phrase is "You're fired!"

The Dems are still reeling from their monumental miscalculation that they could run Hillary Clinton against Trump and win. Turns out this was a yellow dog Republican election cycle, though the margin of victory was very small. I still think we could have done better with someone else, but I support the president so far. That said, I follow the old Russian proverb, "Trust but verify!" Reagan taught me that.
