America’s Greatest Threat by Chuck Baldwin

We don’t need to worry about foreign countries because our own
leadership seems to be the most powerful and tyrannical, to be able to
bully the rest of the world and get away with it. The problem is that
they are never challenged because of all the lockstepping lapdogs of
this phony miserable party and is why they are arrogant. If people would
stand up for truth it would force their hand in revealing the truth of
their nature, even more so than now. There has been some revolt, like
about the Texas Corridor, but still the scoundrels will not rest till
they find a way to push their agenda. The media has and still is going
along with the war propaganda. It seem like every day I hear something
corrupt about about someone in this adminstration. For instance, I had
heard that Karen Hughes is working with islamist extremist groups and
funding them. It is this administration that is promoting terror. They
are playing both sides against each other in order to reduce the world’s
population. I know the islamists were targets of extremist
indoctrination but they are responsible for giving in to the lies. All
those without Christ are vunerable to lies, even those within. I hear
callers on COAST TO COAST thanking Noory because they cannot get the
truth anywhere else on radio. I know how true that is because Savage is
open to lies. I heard a caller on his show proclaim that every knee will
bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, but Savage’s response
was that many people believe differently. But I bet the response would
be the same from these other neocon shows who claim to be christian
(even though they are catholic), who have no excuse for defiance against
the one they claim to serve. Catholics do not have one master. They have
many masters that will be their undoing. The fact that catholics are
polytheistic makes them less credible than muslims who are monotheistic.

Every time violence erupts somewhere in the world, our national leaders and
news media make it sound like that particular outbreak is America’s greatest
threat. The conflict between Russia and Georgia is no exception. Almost as
soon as news of the conflict broke, the presumptive Republican Presidential
nominee, John McCain, was suggesting that the United States (or the United
Nations) should send troops to the scene. I guess two wars are not enough
for McCain; he now wants to start a third. (And with all his talk about
bombing Iran, make that four.) And talk all over Washington, D.C., was
mostly about what kind of military response the United States should take.

Have people lost their minds? Or do people really believe that the United
States is the world’s–or should we say the United Nations’–policeman?
Apparently, that is what our national leaders from both major parties
believe.

Let’s face it: most of America’s foreign policy over the last several
decades has been more about fulfilling the U.N.’s global desires than
protecting the people and property of the United States. And, yes, that
includes America’s invasion of Iraq.

Do readers not remember that soon after launching the invasion of Iraq,
President Bush appeared before the United Nations and plainly told that
sinister organization that the reason he had ordered the invasion of Iraq
was to “defend . . . the credibility of the United Nations”? Frankly, I did
not know the United Nations had any credibility worth defending.
Nevertheless, G.W. Bush was willing to sacrifice over 4,000 American lives
for the express purpose of defending the U.N.’s “credibility.” Now, John
McCain appears willing to send troops to Georgia.

I will not use this column to analyze the specific events leading up to
Russia’s attack against Georgia, except to say that one can count on the
fact that there is much more to the story than what NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN
are telling us.

In addition, one of the major fallacies being perpetrated by most in
Washington, D.C., is the notion that America is somehow strengthened and
protected by aggressive meddling in the affairs of foreign countries. Such a
philosophy was considered anathema to America’s Founding Fathers. They
rightly understood that such reasoning created more problems than it solved
and that it made America more vulnerable, not more secure.

Regardless of what the underlying and overriding reasons for Russia’s attack
might have been, I will say here and now that the Russian-Georgian conflict
is not America’s greatest threat. I will also be so bold as to say that Iran
or North Korea is not America’s greatest threat, either. In fact, I will
categorically state that no foreign nation (although, of all foreign
nations, Red China should undoubtedly be our biggest concern–and none of
our national leaders seem the least bit concerned about it) is America’s
greatest threat. America’s greatest threat comes from within. And I am not
alone in that opinion.

Daniel Webster warned, “There is no nation on earth powerful enough to
accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be
from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of
their government, from their carelessness and negligence. I must confess
that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a
confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their
conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and
become the instruments of their own undoing.”

While the national media focuses on Russia, Georgia, Iraq, Afghanistan, or
Iran, our own leaders are quietly molding the clay of our own demise right
here at home. Both political parties, and the standard-bearers they select,
are facilitating the surrender of our national sovereignty and independence.
They are working in darkness to build an international community where the
laws and principles of individual nation-states (including America’s) are
made subservient to the laws and principles of international entities. This
is America’s greatest threat.

For example, John McCain supports the International Criminal Court. Can you
believe this? Can you imagine U.S. citizens being hauled off before an
international court to be tried for crimes? Imagine an international court
whose rulings and opinions overrule U.S. rulings and opinions. Imagine a
court setting where the constitutional protections of the Bill of Rights are
null and void. Imagine a court setting where international law trumps U.S.
or state laws. If that is not a surrender of U.S. sovereignty, nothing is!
And John McCain is all for it.

Furthermore, both John McCain and Barack Obama support NAFTA, the WTO, GATT,
and the FTAA. Both major party candidates support the NAFTA superhighway,
the creation of a North American Community (which is the precursor to a
North American Union), the SPP, and the United Nations.

Ladies and Gentlemen, America is on the verge of losing its independence and
its national sovereignty. And both major political parties (along with a
compliant national media) are equally culpable. And mark this down: when
America loses its independence and national sovereignty, we also lose our
freedoms and liberties. Please remember that before a Constitution and Bill
of Rights could be drafted, there was first drafted a Declaration of
Independence. It is the Declaration of Independence that lays the
cornerstone and builds the wall of protection around the Constitution and
Bill of Rights. Lose the Declaration and we lose the Constitution and Bill
of Rights.

No, the greatest threat to America does not come from Russia, Iraq, Iran, or
any other foreign country. America’s greatest threat comes from a complacent
populace who would sit back and do nothing while our own civil magistrates
surrender our nation’s sovereignty and independence to international
interests.

Think about it: 232 years after Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of
Independence, and after our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes,
and sacred honor to defend that document, our nation’s leaders from both
major parties are in the process of ceding America back to the kind of
global empire from which we fought to break free. This is America’s greatest
threat! (c) Chuck Baldwin  chuck@chuckbaldwinlive.com
