A Call To Alarm

We have been doing the “30 Days to Live” series at our church, but what if you only had eight hours to live?  In 30 days you have time to examine what is really important in your life and put those first.  In eight hours, especially if you are fighting to protect other Americans  and yourself from terrorists, your decisions are instant and saying goodbye to your loved ones is not an option!

George Washington once put out what is known as “A Call to Arms” advertising broadside asking for the people to take notice and for troops to join his Army during the American Revolution.  Since then and actually before, “A Call to Arms” is a call to action for a country either going into war or already in the midst of a war.  My call is A CALL TO ALARM.  Americans need to be alarmed over the state of our own country and stand up for real change. The time is now!

Recently, there are emails out which show our own top government officials  knew from the moment the attack began at our embassy in Libya, that it was terrorists. They also knew our Americans there needed help!  So the question is, “Why was help not sent, Mr. President?”  Please don’t give me another “it was a video that kept us from crossing the border” excuse.  Those late night talk show hosts might buy it, but the everyday American does not live in a sparkly bubble like they do.

Can you imagine being those two Navy Seals fighting with all of their mental and physical strength to hold their ground until help arrived?  Assistance was one black hawk away. But by hour four, reality must have started to settle in, because there was no whirring over head and guns blasting, only the mortar rounds from the terrorists.

We should have been there slamming those terrorist back to the dust which they came from. Their foreheads should have been healed with, “These are our brothers, our Americans, and you don’t mess with Americans!” The ground should have trembled with our arrival and fear should have extricated down the terrorist’s legs.

How heart breaking it must have been when those American Seals realized that their own country left them to die. A country they had served with honor and exceptional bravery! And what about the other Americans who were inside the safe haven waiting to be rescued. Our White House had left four Americans behind and had failed to protect our American citizens!

Now, what these four Americans might not have realized was the fact that there is a Presidential election going on.  Fund raising and hob knobbing with the Hollywood stars appears to be priority, especially when you are a star yourself. Can’t disappoint those fans!  And who knows, maybe a rap career is in the future for our President and Vice-President.  Because being Commander-in-Chief with the job description of keeping Americans safe, could be just a side job for them.

I would have had more respect for the White House if they said, “we screwed up, dropped the ball, and there is no excuse.”

With the poll number’s gap closing, the pressure on the White House must have been beginning to mount. And to send immediate help would have had to come with the admission that maybe terrorism is not as much on the run, as first espoused by this White House administration. As a matter of fact, terrorists are rampant and curled up like a snake in a hole, waiting to strike again.  It must have been a tough decision, so do the logical thing was to make up a story. No, not a lie, a story.

Geez, the stories that we, Americans, have had shoved down our throats due to blatant arrogance these past four years is enough to choke a continent!

The Apostle Paul stated in 2 Corinthians 3 ” Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you? 2 You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. 3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”

Basically he is saying ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!  What do the last four years say to you about our government’s actions?  Do you have a job or has your pay been cut to support the billions of dollars that they spend? And what do they spend it on? Certainly not to educate our American children, protect our American communities, and stablize our American economy.

If Obama is elected for another four years, we could possibly hit “third world country” status sooner than we think.  And maybe that is the plan. A plan to bring America to the status of the Kenya, Obama warmly remembers from his youth. You know, the Kenya where he and Trump played as youths. So, are we going to sit quietly and become another Kenya, or are we going to be America again?

Whether you agree with me or not, these emails are worth checking out before you vote! Because main stream media is trying to avoid broadcasting about the emails and I believe that their agendas hurt America just as much as own government’s personal agendas. I have provided a link below where you can get the facts before you vote!

Do it because those four Americans deserved better! God bless them and their families!
