Endtime Sign: Upending the Social Order – Part 3
By Dean Olson
The moral bankruptcy of Obama’s presidency is evident in those he surrounds himself with. His top advisor on race matters is Al Sharpton, a self-identified reverend who is an egregious deadbeat, tax cheat and race hustler extraordinaire.
The fact that Sharpton reportedly owes 4.5 Million in federal and state taxes, and routinely stiffs travel agents, hotels, and landlords, hasn’t stopped liberal democrats like New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Govenor Andrew Cuomo from hailing him as a “civil rights icon” at a 60th birthday party in Sharpton’s honor. President Obama sent an aide to read a message commending Sharpton’s “dedication to the righteous cause of perfecting our union.”
In spite of the praise, a November, 2014 piece in the New York Times documents Sharpton’s shady past, reporting that he “…has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills.” The article continued, “His National Action Network appears to have been sustained for years by not paying federal payroll taxes on its employees. With the tax liability outstanding, Mr. Sharpton traveled first class and collected a sizable salary, the kind of practice by nonprofit groups that the United States Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration recently characterized as “abusive,” or “potentially criminal…” The Times article also noted that the reverend and his associates regularly stiff travel agencies, hotels and landlords.
In times past America insisted that its elected leaders adhere to at least a semblance of morality. Associating with a man of Sharpton’s questionable past would be a political liability. Basic morality no longer has a seat at the table in Obama’s morally and ethically stunted universe. Today a president can embrace and praise a deadbeat tax cheat, not to mention a racist agitator who has advocated killing whites and police officers as described below, and continue his political career unscathed. As we approach the end time, morality is no longer a factor in the Obama equation. It is all about the relentless pursuit of his radical agenda to upend the social order.
Obama’s decision to build a partnership with, and lend credibility to, Sharpton reveals volumes about his real attitude towards the police. Sharpton has reportedly made more than 100 visits to the White House since Obama took office. He is so close to Obama that the two of them have vacationed together on Martha’s Vineyard. Obama befriending Sharpton proves the adage “you can tell a man’s character by the friends he keeps.”
President Obama spoke at Sharpton’s April 2014 National Action Network conference, where he praised and glorified him as a leader. “I want to say, first of all, thank you to your leader, Reverend Al Sharpton. Give him a big round of applause,” Obama said, giving him even more legitimacy. “There’s a trust factor with the Rev. from the Oval Office on down,” a White House aide told Politico. “He gets it, and he’s got credibility in the community that nobody else has got. There’s really no one else out there who does what he does.”
Sharpton is a race charlatan with a long history of stoking racial strife for political and economic gain. He has taught his followers and young men in the black community to judge and hate those born with a different skin color. He is the very same bigot who, in a 1992 meeting with supporters at Kean University in Union, NJ, was caught in an unguarded moment when he was unaware that cameras were rolling advocating killing whites and police officers. “I believe in offing the pigs.” “Well they got pigs out here. You aint offed one of them.” “What I believe in I do. I’ll off the man (police).” “Well off him. Plenty of crackers walking right around here tonight.”
Recently, when “peaceful” protesters took to the streets of New York City for Sharpton’s 2014 Million Marchers many of them chanted, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do want them? Now!” Sharpton not only refused to condemn them after NYPD officers Ramos and Liu were murdered by a black male harboring those very same sentiments, he offered soft rhetoric and tried to distance himself from his own supporters in order to evade responsibility for their actions.
There is only one reason why Obama embraces a shameless race hustler like Sharpton. He truly agrees with his ideas and believes in his positions, regardless of whether those ideas and positions are based in fact or help the country move forward. For Obama and his ilk, it is not about upholding his oath of office and solving the problems of the country he leads, it is about wielding presidential power to divide, degrade and ultimately destroy the nation he loathes in furtherance of his leftist ideology.
To further his agenda of destroying America, Obama has embraced, praised and legitimized the very groups agitating for the death of cops. Key among them is the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Obama invited them to the White House in 2014 and again in February, 2016. At the February meeting Obama praised them saying they have been “really effective in bringing attention to problems.” He continued to fawn over the young militant leftists saying that they “are much better organizers” than he was at their age, and that he is “confident that they are going to take America to new heights.”
He is right about BLM achieving notoriety, but not by taking the nation to new heights. Instead, the President’s favorite leftist radical group has helped to foster a toxic, anti-police environment that is worse than anything I saw in my thirty years in law enforcement. The day after five Dallas police officers were murdered by a BLM supporter, BLM protestors in Phoenix threatened police saying, ‘We Should Shoot You’ at a protest described by the liberal media as a ‘peaceful’ rally.
As news was emerging from Dallas that a man inspired by BLM rhetoric had murdered five Dallas police officers, a BLM march took place in Portland, OR. Video from that protest shows a BLM protest leader calling for shooting, running over police officers, and saying, “You better f**king take action!” The BLM leader also said, “If they go about their burden of whatever they said you’re doing, you pull your pistol out and you f**king bust that. You pull your pistol out and you bust that! Because at the end of the day, it’s going to be you against them,” he continues. “When we move with the (New Black)Panthers, trust me when you see me move, I’m moving in violence!” he threatens.
Another speaker then implored the white people involved in the protest, “We’re tired of walking around here asking ya’ll to help us – we need action.” The original speaker then repeats his call for violence, asserting, “I don’t give a f**k whether you knock ’em over, whether you run up on them, whatever you do, you better f**king take action!”
Calls for violence against police should not be surprising. Black Lives Matter founders cite convicted cop killer, and FBI ‘Most Wanted’ 70’s left-wing terrorist, Assata Shakur as their inspiration. They have also staged rallies during which protesters chanted for “dead cops” as well and “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.” The phrase “pigs in a blanket” refers to dead cops in body bags.
Armed New Black Panthers members also called for the murder of police officers during an open carry march at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, TX last year, chanting, “The only good pig is a pig that’s dead.” In June last year, two BLM supporters admitted to masterminding a plot to blow up a police station and kill numerous cops in Ferguson, Missouri to avenge the death of Michael Brown. In December 2014, Ismaaiyl Brinsley shot two NYPD officers in the head as part of a “revenge attack” for the death of Michael Brown.
In a summer marred by cop killings, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is revealing her utter disdain for police officers and society by inviting the likes of Lezley McSpadden to speak at the Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia. McSpadden is the mother of the most infamous strong-arm robbery suspect and attempted cop-killer of the last decade, Michael Brown.
Ferguson Missouri police officer Darren Wilson attempted to talk to Brown after he realized Brown matched the description of a strong-arm robbery suspect. Brown responded by attacking and punching Wilson in his police SUV and attempting to take Wilson’s gun. Wilson managed to fight Brown off and shot Brown in the hand, which momentarily convinced Brown to back off.
Brown began to flee but when Officer Wilson ordered him to halt and surrender the NFL lineman-size Brown charged Wilson in a murderous rage. A beaten and battered Wilson opened fire in self-defense finally killing Brown with a fatal shot through the head from just feet away as Brown lowered his head and charged him.
While McSpadden had every right to be upset over the loss of her son, she went beyond being upset to allegedly violently robbing people selling “Justice for Mike Brown” merchandise. In one incident she reportedly robbed a grandmother of $1400. Felony charges against her for armed robbery were considered, but were apparently decided against out of political expediency.
She also has a history of making inflammatory, anti-cop statements. After two cops were shot in Ferguson last March, she was positively elated at the news, posting, “Woke up in a GREAT MOOD this morning. 2 Cops got Shot in FERGUSON last night. You ant seen sh** yet, wait till this SUMMER,” she tweeted. It got worse, “F*** THEM 2 COPS..DON’T GOT NO SYMPATHY FOR THEM OR THEY FAMILIES…Aint no FUN when the Rabbit got the GUN.” Using all capital letters indicates that the writer is shouting to emphasize what is shown in the post.
Hillary also invited a host of other sainted moms of the Black Lives Matter movement to speak. Among them are Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontre Hamilton; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton; and Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland.
The Bland case is questionable because she hanged herself when her friends and family refused to bail her out of jail after she had kicked a police officer. Two of the “children” involved in police shootings, Brown and Hamilton, had assaulted cops during their fatal encounters. Sybrina Fulton’s illegal gun-dealing, drug-abusing son Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman from behind and was shot as he attempted to beat Zimmerman to death by bashing his head against a concrete sidewalk. Maria Hamilton’s son Dontre attacked a police officer with a baton striking him in the neck and forcing the officer to open fire in self defense.
By legitimizing and elevating the mothers of two attempted cop killers, and an attempted murderer of a neighborhood watch volunteer, to the role of even minor speakers Hillary Clinton has sent a clear message to law enforcement that she values the lives of violent criminals far more than she values the lives of police.
Each of these speakers will be used by Hillary to reinforce the false narrative of unjustified violence against minorities by racist cops and systemic racism in the criminal justice system. The goal is to foment violent social upheaval in order to tear down the system and replace it with a totalitarian socialist utopia reminiscent of the worst of communist China or the Soviet Union. Of course, those atop such a system wield the power to enrich themselves at the expense of others. That includes Clinton, Obama and all of their leftist stooges.
Philadelphia’s police union wasted no time blasting Clinton for inviting the relatives of victims of police shootings to speak while ignoring the relatives of slain police officers. According to the union, Clinton has revealed her hatred of police by throwing her support behind the families of violent criminals who targeted police officers while ignoring the widows and other family members of police officers killed in the line of duty.
In an ominous development that may portend a dramatic rise in bloodshed the FBI issued a bulletin on July 15th to police nationwide warning that backlash and anger towards law enforcement could be growing into organized, targeted attacks on officers spearheaded by street gangs: “Gang-related threats and attacks on LEOs (law enforcement officers) have been reported in multiple jurisdictions since the Dallas shootings, and suggest that individuals and gang members may be targeting LEOs for retaliatory violence. Gang members have also issued multiple threats of violence towards LEOs via social media following the Dallas shootings and the officer-involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.”
The bulletin reported that a leader in the Four Corner Hustlers street gang of Chicago verbalized a desire to kill a federal law enforcement agent saying that the murder of a federal agent would strike louder than the murder of a police officer. Similarly, leadership of the United Blood Nation (UBN) street gang is promoting violence against law enforcement by promising advancement in status to members who are violent against police. The bulletin also noted that a few black extremist groups are encouraging gangs nationwide to unite and attack law enforcement while applauding the death of the Dallas police officers.
A network TV law enforcement contributor, who is experienced working with gangs in Los Angeles, fears that “If the movement to target and assassinate cops expands past lone wolves, as we have thus far seen in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and other cities, and mobilizes violent gang members nationwide, the effect could be overwhelming.”
Obama and Clinton are only the most visible face of the corrosive forces that are rending the social and cultural fabric of America. Behind them lurk many others who share their aspirations of radical deformation and ultimately the destruction of America. Many of those forces may not be evil in and of themselves, but they serve Satan’s agenda of weakening and eventually bringing down the last great bastion of Christianity in preparation for the rise of the antichrist following the rapture.
Because of God’s blessings, we are the most powerful nation on earth with a professional and highly effective military. Even though Obama has worked hard to weaken and diminish the military by drastically reducing the number of ships in the Navy, drawing down the number of soldiers to pre-World War II levels, imposing social experiments like allowing females into combat, eliminating the barriers to gays and transgenders openly serving, failing to maintain and improve our nuclear deterrence, and other examples too numerous to list here, no nation dares to attack us… for now. That is why Satan uses the traitors within to surreptitiously bring down America by guile, subterfuge and stealth.
While many prophecy watchers are focused on Israel and the Middle East looking for end time signs, ignoring the turmoil in Western nations, especially in America, may cause us to miss significant indicators. It is too early to tell if the violence against cops unfolding on America’s streets is an end time sign. However, because America is not clearly mentioned in biblical prophecy, our once great but now faltering nation must be brought low to prevent it from being a significant player in end time events.
Signs that the social order is being upended may indicate that we are witnessing the beginning of the end of America. If the turmoil currently roiling America are the precursor events that will eventually lead to the demise of our nation they also indicate how near we are to the rapture.
The rapture may be God’s final judgment on America. The country will be fatally damaged when the salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16) disappear in the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52). The shattered remnant of our country will be easy pickings for the plethora of enemies currently waiting to pounce. That is why America is not mentioned in end time prophecy.
Unfortunately, we might also see a softening up of our country long before the rapture to ensure that the forces of evil have an easier path to the rise of the antichrist and his rule based on a three-legged stool consisting of one world government, one world economy, and one world religion. Jesus told us that the appearance of these signs would increase in frequency and severity like birth pangs the closer we get to the end of the age (Matthew 24:8). If the violence against cops is an end time sign, we can expect more and greater racial strife, violence, and social disorder in the coming months.
Obama’s presidency has certainly served the softening up process. Key among his destructive actions are his incessant fanning of the flames of racial strife. Instead of reinforcing black grievance, Obama could have shown leadership befitting the dignity of the office he holds and fulfilled his responsibility as America’s first black president by convincing blacks that their lives matter enough for them to take responsibility for them.
If the president truly cared about black Americans he would stop denigrating cops and reviling the criminal justice system. He would denounce the glamorization of thug culture so pervasive in the black ghettos that young black males abandon the concepts of personal responsibility for one’s actions, and hard work and education as prerequisites of success, choosing instead to hang around aimlessly on the street with chips on their shoulders and pistols in their waistband while avoiding being fathers to their children.
All of the good he could have accomplished in his premier presidency he has squandered on the altar of his radical ideology that seeks to destroy the country he loathes. In the process he has abandoned the very people he professes to care about the most. He has led them deeper into hopelessness, despair and anger by failing to give them a vision of hope and direction to a better life based on being a responsible citizen and partaking in the avenues of success that consistently produce the American dream. But that would take faith in and love of America that our president does not have.
Instead of despairing over these events we are comforted by the words of Christ in Luke 21:28, “…when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.” It is also heartening to consider the words of Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who is black and an outspoken critic of Obama. He addressed the vociferous critics of law enforcement across the nation with these words: “You critics don’t define our honor. You try to shame us for doing our job. You teach children to fear us, crowds to attack us and good people to doubt us. But we will never back down from our sworn duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. We wake up every day, put on our badge, strap a gun to our hips, kiss our families goodbye and put our lives between the law-abiding and any criminal who threatens their rights. We serve people of every color and creed … men, women and children in violent, dangerous neighborhoods … because they have the same right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as CEOs, movie stars and the political elite. We are Americans, and we are the American police officer.”
