America: Our Troubles Began with Three Globalist Presidents

Americans of every political “stripe” urgently need to understand that our “so-called leaders” are “leading” Americans straight into the Abyss.  This nation, founded as a democratic Republic enshrined in the God-inspired United States Constitution Sept. 17, 1787 – exactly 230 years ago today – could only survive and prosper, in the words of Thomas Jefferson, (paraphrased) “for as long as Americans remained a religious and moral people”.  Indeed; when asked by a woman in Philadelphia what the 39 delegates had created, Benjamin Franklin replied, “A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it.”

By the Year of our Lord 1912, when the conservative “trust-buster” (going after business monopolies) William Howard Taft was still our President, America was still a “religious and moral people”, 125 years after the adoption of the U.S. Constitution at the 1787 Philadelphia Convention of States.  However, as we learn from the Holy Bible, Our Father Who Art in Heaven has from the beginning given fallen man a choice; between right and wrong; good and evil; God or Satan.  It was, according to evidence viewed through the lens of a Christian worldview, and tragically, that Americans began “to go off the rails” some 105 years ago, at the time of the Presidential election of November, 1912.

President William Howard Taft was a close political ally of his predecessor, President Theodore Roosevelt; tragically, these two men had a “falling out” and “Teddy” Roosevelt ran again for a third term as President as an independent, having formed the “Bull Moose Party”.

This had the unfortunate effect of splitting 8.6 million Republican votes between Roosevelt and Taft, allowing Democratic candidate Woodrow Wilson, a liberal internationalist, to win the Presidency in 1912 with only 6.3 million votes.  Thus Wilson, our first “Globalist” President, was elected with only 42% of nearly 15 million votes cast.

Wilson took office March 4, 1913.  In that same year, America was saddled with the Income Tax, the Federal Reserve Banking System, and our nation, as this author has written before, would never be quite the same again.

In 1916, President Wilson won a second term in large part on the slogan “He kept us out of war”.  Nevertheless, on April 6, 1917, Wilson asked Congress to declare war against Germany, and America entered World War I.  In 1918-19, the “Doughboys” came home with new ideas from Europe, and the cultural upheaval known to historians as the “Roaring Twenties” brought changes that began the process of the dissolution of morality, integrity and the rule of law.  The “Roaring Twenties”, with its large scale impact of sexual immorality, excessive drinking, smoking, gambling, financial malfeasance and large-scale organized crime, would give way in the 1930’s to the Great Depression.

With 25% unemployment by 1932, the stage was set for a Democrat, Socialist and Globalist, Franklin D. Roosevelt, to be elected President and with an overwhelmingly Democratic Congress, enacted a multitude of laws purportedly aimed at reviving our economy and putting millions of starving unemployed back to work.  The true effect was to bring large scale federal government socialist programs that began the dependence on government and polarization between conservatives and liberals that has slowly intensified since 1913.  Pursuing a Globalist and Socialist agenda similar to predecessor Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt not only normalized government dependency, but used World War II as a catalyst to help write the Charter and entangle the United States in the now-nefarious United Nations.  Today the vast majority of the member nations in the “U.N.”, openly hate America, while our tax dollars pay over 25% of the annual budget of the U.N.

In the post-World War II era, after the passing of President Roosevelt, America boomed and prospered, in spite of the damage done by two Socialist/Globalist Presidents (Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt) and the accelerating social and moral decline facilitated by decadent moral and social values the military forces imported to our nation from Europe when they came home from four years of war in 1946.  In fact, history shows that the year 1950 marked the absolute zenith of American military, political and economic world dominance, that would continue virtually undiminished until the assassination of President Kennedy, and the ascendancy to the White House of our “Third Great Socialist/Globalist of the 20th Century, President Lyndon Johnson.

As history attests, the accelerated decline of the United States began in earnest some 50 years ago, with the wasting of billons of dollars and 58,000 lives in the disasterous Vietnam War, along with massive social unrest and moral decadence during the coming-of-age of the Baby Boomers in the seven years from 1964-1971.  Indeed, a shell-shocked and demoralized nation came out of the tumultuous 1960s, to endure the Watergate scandal, the toppling of President Richard Nixon for obstruction of justice, the 1973 OPEC oil embargo, and the same year, the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion and would result in the murder of 60 million unborn babies in the next 44 years.

These horrors and shocks to a once-devoutly Christian and moral people now in perilous moral decline, were further exacerbated by the “Great Society” programs, that created our “Welfare State”, and the “Immigration Reforms” led by Lyndon Johnson and Ted Kennedy, that would, beginning in 1965, flood America with tens of millions of immigrants, legal and illegal, whose culture and beliefs were indifferent-to-openly hostile toward the traditional values of Americans based on Christianity and our Constitution.

Thus with the immoral “leadership” of the “Three Socialist-Globalist Presidents” in the period 1913-1969, that the dye was cast some 50 years ago, for the massive decline, polarization and likely civil insurrection looming like a dark and evil cloud over America in A.D. 2017.

It all began with Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson.  But the voters who put these three presidents in office certainly share the blame for the fractured nation America is today.

Therefore, any hope we have for a rescue and resurgence of America, to use the words of President Trump, to “Make Her Great Again”, rests with our people turning away from evil, away from immorality, and turning to Our Father, Who Art in Heaven!
