We Will Outlast Them

Obama Joke

“That on you is fallen the shadow,
And not upon the Name;
That though we
scatter and though we fly,
And you hang over us like the sky,
You are more
tired of victory,
Than we are tired of shame.

“That though you hunt
the Christian man
Like a hare on the hill-side,
The hare has still more
heart to run
Than you have heart to ride.

“That though all lances
split on you,
All swords be heaved in vain,
We have more lust again to
Than you to win again.

G.K. Chesterton, Ballad of the White Horse

Well, the inauguration of President Obama for his second term has occurred and the supporters of the Left in this country are as happy as the perpetually disgruntled can be.  They should enjoy their moment in the sun, it will be brief.  The Cult of Obama got him re-elected but it cannot alter the fact that his policies have been a flat disaster for the nation.  Unlike all Presidents but one, Obama begins his second term with the support of fewer people than those who cast ballots for him in 2008.  Political ideology and a sycophantic mainstream media can only defy reality for so long and after this administration crashes and burns we will be around to pick up the pieces.

More to explorer


  1. The truly important event takes place at noon on January 25th. Today was a gathering of pretenders. On Friday D.C. will see the honest Americans.
    Let us call to mind the 55 million plus.
    They, unlike Rosie Parks, never had a chance to ride in a bus, or walk through a doorway.
    Today was a sham.
    Friday American patriots take to the mall, and redeem the once sacred ground of Washington D.C.
    They honor the fallen. We will never forget the unborn dead.

  2. 55,000,000 human souls scraped from the womb to prove that there is no God, that a person is who the state says is a person, that the state says that the Person of God is not a person.

    The Person of God was not tried in a court of law before being banned from the public square. The Person of God may be banned from the public square without trial, proof and conviction of wrongdoing, on the complaint of the soul who denies the human soul.

    In the absence of Justice, America has elected tyranny.

  3. I too think conservatism will eventually win out. But, as it stands now, things will get worse, much worse, before they get better.

    Obama has been wildly successful in getting a left-wing ideology implemented as policy, unpopularity notwithstanding. And still got reelected. No mean feat.

  4. Just back from a board meeting of the Pro-life Crisis Pregancy Center in my county. I’ve been Chairman of the Board for a decade. Donations to the Center have been up sharply since the November election. A good sign I would say of determination of our supporters in the teeth of adversity.

  5. I won’t waste one moment of my life watching this evil fraud re-crowned – I just couldn’t stomach it. These certainly are times that try men’s (and women’s) souls. My beautiful country has been subverted and diabolically inverted against herself. It’s a great struggle not to hate the people who out of their stupidity/malice put this guy back into office who will pull us ALL into the pit. We know ultimately the truth will prevail – it’s just very difficult waiting for justice to be done. I just hope I live long enough to witness it.

  6. I am having a very rare moment of sanity. Do not worry. It will soon pass. It always does. But let’s remember that St Peter lived under brutal, vicious Roman Emperors who make Obama look like a timid piker by comparison, and he still wrote in verses 13 through 17 of his first epistle (some would say, the first Papal Encyclical ever):

    “13 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing right you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16 Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil; but live as servants of God. 17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.”

    Therefore, having come across a rather nice prayer for the President in the Anglican 1928 Book of Common Prayer……..

    “ALMIGHTY God, whose kingdom is everlasting and power infinite; Have mercy upon this whole land; and so rule the hearts of thy servants THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, The Governor of this State, and all others in authority, that they, knowing whose ministers they are, may above all things seek thy honour and glory; and that we and all the People, duly considering whose authority they bear, may faithfully and obediently honour them, according to thy blessed Word and ordinance; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth ever, one God, world without end. Amen.”

    Even Jesus said to Pontius Pilate, “You would have no power over me unless it had been given you from above…” (John 19:11) We have received the government we deserve, just as the children of Israel did in 1st Samuel chapter 8.

    Ok, this rare moment of sanity has passed. I shall now go back to being the right wing conservative nut case extremist (and pro-nuker) that irritates the heck out of all my liberal friends (and I don’t really have that many). 😉

  7. The 1928 Anglican BCP prayer is short and sweet, but there is also the Catholic prayer composed by Bishop John Carroll in 1789 on the occasion of George Washington’s inauguration:

    “We pray you, O God of might, wisdom, and justice,
    through whom authority is rightly administered,
    laws are enacted, and judgment decreed,
    assist with your Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude
    the President of these United States,
    that his administration may be conducted in righteousness,
    and be eminently useful to your people, over whom he presides;
    by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion;
    by a faithful execution of the laws in justice and mercy;
    and by restraining vice and immorality.

    “Let the light of your divine wisdom direct
    the deliberations of Congress,
    and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws
    framed for our rule and government,
    so that they may tend to the preservation of peace,
    the promotion of national happiness,
    the increase of industry, sobriety, and useful knowledge;
    and may perpetuate to us the blessing of equal liberty.

    “We pray for the governor of this state,
    for the members of the assembly,
    for all judges, magistrates, and other officers
    who are appointed to guard our political welfare,
    that they may be enabled, by your powerful protection,
    to discharge the duties of their respective stations
    with honesty and ability.

    “We recommend likewise, to your unbounded mercy,
    all our fellow citizens throughout the United States,
    that we may be blessed in the knowledge
    and sanctified in the observance of your most holy law;
    that we may be preserved in union,
    and in that peace which the world cannot give;
    and after enjoying the blessings of this life,
    be admitted to those which are eternal.
    Grant this, we beseech you, O Lord of mercy,
    through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.”

    The one change I would make would be to insert the name of the President and the name and state of one’s governor. Yes, it would make me cringe a bit to have to say out loud “the President of these United States, Barack Obama” and “the governor of this state of Illinois, Pat Quinn” for obvious reasons. But, these are real people — not just abstractions — for whom we pray, and they are responsible for the welfare of sovereign nations and states that each possess a unique history and culture. And if mentioning their names is an uncomfortable reminder of how much they need our prayers, well, consider it a small form of penance 🙂

  8. During the Killing Times, the Scottish Covenanters replaced the State Prayers with the metrical version of the Psalm Deus Laudem (Ps 109/108)

    One must imagine the Precentor giving it out, line by line, to be repeated by the little congregation, “praying ahint a dyke.”

    A sample

    6 Set thou the wicked over him;
    and upon his right hand
    Give thou his greatest enemy,
    ev’n Satan, leave to stand.

    7 And when by thee he shall be judged,
    let him condemn-ed be;
    And let his pray’r be turn’d to sin,
    when he shall call on thee.

    8 Few be his days, and in his room
    his charge another take.
    9 His children let be fatherless,
    his wife a widow make.


  9. Have just got back from a 5 day retreat for the deacons of our diocese (I’m a Candidate – expect a date for ordination to be April or May).
    I just about puked watching Obama take the pledge, vowing to uphold the Constitution. The bastard has done nothing for the past couple of years but attempt to eliminate it – or at least by-pass it .
    Can’t believe the hypocrisy of the man.

  10. Paul,
    I like your moments of sanity.
    Your correct in bringing us to the truth.
    St. Paul’s day was much worse.
