the oppressing city!
She listens to no voice,
she accepts no correction.
She does not trust in the Lord,
she does not draw near to her God.
- Zephaniah 3: 1-3
Well, okay, just how late in the day is it on this eighteenth of October 2016?
Evidence of rank-and-file FBI disillusionment with director Comey continues to pour in:
We have, of course, the private-server scandal as ample evidence of Madame BleachBit's recklessness as Secretary of State. Now there is another type of substantiation:
Secret Service agents . . . complained that Clinton “disregarded security and diplomatic protocols, occasionally without regard for the safety of her staff and protection detail, in order to gain favorable press.” According to the official, Clinton refused to travel by armored limousine with the U.S. ambassador as is standard diplomatic and security protocol when the secretary of State visits a foreign country.
“CLINTON refused to do so, instead choosing to be accompanied in the limousine by her Chief of Staff, HUMA ABEDIN. This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol,” the summary says. Clinton’s breaches of protocol, it adds, were “well-known throughout Diplomatic Security and were ‘abundant.'”
The report goes on to say that DS agents were "indignant" because Clinton refused to leave her BlackBerry outside of her office as required, as it is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF), while the agents had to leave their cell phones at the door.
With his electoral-college prospects dim at best, Squirrel-Hair continues to indulge his penchant for pettiness, the trait which motivates him to aim his volleys at what is ostensibly his own party. Today's edition of Trash the Pubs has S-H claiming that Paul Ryan is not supporting him because Ryan intends to run for president in 2020. It gets worse. S-H's signature narcissism reaches delusional levels as he says, "I'm in his territory and they're all screaming for Trump." Um, Squirrel-Hair, I invite you to squarely look at the fact that Ryan outpolls both you and Madame BleachBit.
Oh, and in the wake of the firebombing of the Orange County, North Carolina GOP headquarters, to her credit, Madame BleachBit issued a tweet that graciously expressed relief that no one was hurt. Squirrel-Hair? He immediately blamed it on "animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems" who did it "because we're winning." Again, his obsession with winners and losers overrides any kind of broader thought process.
So we have the nation's federal-level law-enforcement agency completely demoralized, one viable presidential candidate with a track record of endangering national security, and the other routinely behaving like a spoiled ten-year-old.
Patriotic Americans, as well as those in various parts of the world who have yearned for freedom and understand its great price, are now without a beacon of hope.
This is what a nation that says "no, thank you" to its blessings looks like.
We really are testing the limits of God's mercy.
