Is The US Constitution Dead?
I find it increasingly difficult to conclude that a constitutional contract still exists between the American people and its government. The document that our founding fathers established as our rule of law is being violated on such a fundamental level it’s almost void of any meaning.
What we have today are rules that apply to people on the left and people on the right. If you are Hillary Clinton or the son of Joe Biden, you can commit any crime, and at best, you will receive a slap on the hand. If you are friendly in any way to the Republican Party, the vast resource of the government and the liberal media will be turned against you.
The ongoing impeachment process against Trump is obviously a sham. When Donald Trump took office in Jan. of 2017, radical members of Congress called for his immediate impeachment. Dingbats like Al Green and Maxine Waters didn’t think he met all the requirements to be President. After searching for three years to find something to use as their excuse to run the impeachment process against him, they settled on an issue involving the nation of Ukraine. Trump was said to have held up funds until Ukraine investigated Hunter Biden.
Nancy Pelosi read out two charges against Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. In order to claim that Trump abused his power, he needs to be charged with a crime. Bill Clinton pleaded guilty to lying under oath, and Richard Nixon ordered a coverup of Watergate. Nancy is trying to impeach the President for being a bad man, in her view. The second charge, obstruction of Congress, is pure garbage. Because Trump runs a separate branch of the government, he has the constitutional right to obstruct Congress from invading his Executive turf. If they want to force Trump to do something, they need to get a veto-proof vote in both chambers.
There is zero chance that the Senate will vote to remove Trump for office. If I was Senate Majority and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, I would laugh and just say “NO.” Since He cleared the Senate calendar for the month of January, McConnell is going to take Pelosi’s bait and have a trial. When they finally vote to acquit Trump, the House is going to start a new impeachment inquiry. Trump will likely set the record for the most impeachments for a single President, but it won’t mean anything.
The IG report was released last week, and IG director Horowitz “did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the four individual investigations.” FBI spies went in four times into the Trump campaign to seek information that could be used to harm Trump’s presidential bid, and we are told they were just there to keep things on the up and up.
This investigation was done with illegal authorizations that were used against security adviser Mike Flynn, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, and goofball Roger Stone. They all now face long prison terms for lying to Congress and the Justice Department; the organizations that set them up. At this stage, lying to any government agency has become a joke. They lie to get people into trouble, and then they seek conviction to restore the truth.
The liberal media has become a vital partner with the government to strip people of their rights and to impose authoritarian rule. The New York Times has openly called for curtailing free speech. Its reporters actively work to promote a corrupt prosecutor in order to frame innocent people for rape, as the NYT did in the infamous Duke Lacrosse Case, and when the press wrongly accused the high school boys from Covington Catholic School of harassing a Native American. The result was active death threats against the students. The liberal media are the enemy of the people because they will now automatically attack anyone who opposes their leftist agenda.
I think the US Constitution is doomed because mankind has a hopeless flaw in eventually falling for tyrannical governments. They promise to solve all our problems with money. The free handout always requires the handover of power. When they gain the political edge, the people become their slaves. Because we are so close to the tribulation hour, I cannot hold out any hope of a political or spiritual revival. All I see is a public that is so guilty of neglecting its heritage of liberty, it deserves the punishment that is rapidly headed their way.
“Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves” (1 Samuel 8:10-17).
Trending toward Tribulation
While this year draws near to its end, it is a good idea, I think, to make assessment of where we might stand on God’s prophetic timeline.
Certainly by any measure of a true watcher of God’s Bible prophecy clock, the hour is late. Let’s try to break down exactly how late that hour is.
ISRAEL TRACKING TOWARD TRIBULATION HOUR
The news of late just continues to build toward Israel becoming the “cup of trembling and burdensome stone” of Zechariah chapter 12. The Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel chapters 38-39 is clearly in view.
God’s prophetic clock, as I and many other fundamentalist students of Bible prophecy believe, is, of course, the nation Israel. So to understand what is happening in that Jewish state, chosen by God to be prototype in His dealings with all nations of earth, is a good place to start with our assessment.
Some of the headlines that attest to this fact can be determined by posts in recent Rapture Ready News posts.
- How the Israel-Iran War Might Begin
The missiles will come in low, after being in the air for almost an hour, and when they hit, they will be coming just over the horizon. People who witness the attack will remember later that the missiles didn’t fall from the sky. They flew at their target straight, like a bullet. The drones will hit just a few minutes later. They will have been flying at low altitudes for longer, taking off in Iraq, crossing into Syria, and then across the border into Israel.

- Israeli Military Says Hezbollah Undeterred Despite Recent Setbacks
A year after uncovering a network of cross-border Hezbollah tunnels, the Israeli military says the Lebanese militant group has beefed up its presence along the volatile frontier. Military officials say that neither the destruction of the tunnels, nor Hezbollah’s recent domestic problems, have weakened the group’s desire to prepare for renewed conflict with Israel.
- Descendants of Gog & Magog Join Russia, Iran in Joint Military Drill
“O mortal, turn your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Prophesy against him” (Ezekiel 38:2). Iran announced last week that they will, for the first time, hold joint war drills with China, and Russia. One rabbi, an end-of-days expert, stated that this will bring together all the elements “to end all of history.”

RELIGION ROARING IN REBELLION
The world of religion, led by Pope Francis, is gnashing its teeth toward the God of Heaven.
- *Pope Francis Declares That Christian Fundamentalists Are “A Scourge”
Beware of the fundamentalist groups: everyone has his own. In Argentina too there is a little fundamentalist corner. And let us try, with fraternity, to go forward. Fundamentalism is a scourge and all religions have some kind of fundamentalist first cousin there, which forms a group. Ostensibly, these remarks apply to fundamentalists from all religions. But by mentioning Argentina, the Pope made it exceedingly clear who his real target was. There aren’t any “Muslim fundamentalists” or “Hindu fundamentalists” in Argentina. The fundamentalists that he was referring to are the Christian fundamentalists in Argentina, and in the very next sentence he denounced such people as “a scourge”.
- Ilhan Omar Leads Catholic Church in Muslim Prayer

- Pope Advances One World Religion Agenda: Presents Buddhist Leader with Manifesto
Pope Francis topped off his three-day visit to Thailand last Saturday with a meeting with Thailand’s supreme Buddhist patriarch Somdej Phra Maha Muneewong at Bangkok’s Ratchabophit Temple. The meeting took place in front of a 150-year-old gold statue of Buddha. The Pope followed Buddhist custom by removing his shoes. During the meeting, the Pope gave the Buddhist Patriarch the Declaration on Human Brotherhood. “You assume that the pope is Catholic but he is certainly not acting like a Catholic,” Rabbi Asore said. “These alliances, his actions, are certainly not what a Catholic would do.”
The above constitute but a scant overview of the hundreds of reports in these and other categories that could be used in our assessment. But suffice it to say that no matter in which direction the prophetic observer looks, one sees the ominous clouds of Tribulation boiling on the horizon.
This all means not gloom and doom for the Christian, rather a glorious prospect beyond description. The Rapture is but a millisecond away at any given moment as we carry out our duties as watchmen on the wall.
