The Tale of Two Americas :: By Bill Wilson

The lame duck “president” is off on his last million-dollar-plus vacation at taxpayer expense. Against the backdrop of golfing, he talked some trash about the election. He told CNN, “You know, I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I – if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it…they would say, ‘The vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one.’”

In other words, he’s taunting president-elect Donald Trump, saying that he could have beaten Trump. He refuses to believe that it was his “vision” that America soundly rejected. Herein is a tale of two America’s: The one of the Marxist Islamist “president” and the real America.

Here’s a “president” who has run up the national debt to $19 trillion and change, a doubling of the debt since he took office. Record numbers of people have fallen out of the job market since he took office-some 14 million. Over 45 million people are receiving some form of government assistance, also a record.

Record numbers of Islamic “refugees” and “immigrants” have entered the US via terrorist-sponsoring nations. Hundreds of thousands of people continue to illegally cross America’s unsecured borders. Race relations have deteriorated. Laws have gone selectively unenforced. People are now without affordable health care. And the “president’s” policy on and actions toward Israel is a disgrace.

Already, the president-elect seemingly has done more for America in just a month of transition than the lame duck has done in eight years. His meetings have resulted in commitments for nearly 100,000 jobs, with tycoons from China and Japan bringing jobs to America, and Carrier, Ford, Panasonic, Tesla and a number of small businesses are gearing up to either keep jobs in America or create new ones under the optimism of Trump’s economic plan. Meanwhile, the outgoing occupant of the Oval Office is preaching the socialist mantra that Americans better get accustomed to their jobs being taken by robots. Trump has also reassured Israel that things will change in American foreign policy when he takes office.

An AP poll indicated Americans weren’t thrilled with 2016. “Only 18 percent said things for the country got better, 33 percent said things got worse, and 47 percent said it was unchanged from 2015.” Fifty-five percent, however, said they believe things will be better for them in the coming year—a 12-point improvement from last year’s poll.”

They cited the hope of more and better jobs as reasons for optimism. Many have expressed that it feels like a tremendous burden has been lifted in that the nation will not continue under the oppressive socialistic policies of the past 8 years. The lame duck “president,” however, deceives himself and others.

Proverbs 14:8 says, “The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit.” And, hence, we have the tale of two Americas.

Have a blessed and powerful day!
