Sewing The Seeds of Mistrust

“If people can’t trust not only the executive branch but also don’t trust Congress, and don’t trust federal judges, to make sure that we’re abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we’re going to have some problems here.” Barack Obama – June 7, 2013

President Obama is standing in the weeded field of his own doing, wondering why the seeds he placed in the planting season have now produced such an ugly harvest of distrust.

  • Benghazi … why the lies and cover-up?
  • In speaking of AIG … “they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger. You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger.”

You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. (Matthew 7:16–20)

  1. Fast and Furious? Ron

  2. You are absolutely right. It’s so easy to lose track.

  3. Well said Don! No one in my lifetime has ever created more class warfare than this current President. It’s in his MO to make Americans feel like they have been victimized! And its always the Rich evil corporations that are creating the very jobs the government is trying to squash to create dependency on the government

    • Yea Chris, I relate to your “in my lifetime” comment. I told a friend early on in 2009 that I fear this man Obama, and I still do, and that’s why I have been writing this blog for well over 4 years now. If you look at my “WHY I WRITE” menu item you will see more of my motivations.
