With the Primaries Inching Closer, Americans Should Be Nervous

Will Michelle Obama throw her hat in the ring? (Charisma News archives)

It's hard to believe, but in three months the first presidential primary debate gets underway. Fox News will be hosting it in Milwaukee, but Donald Trump said he'll be a "no show" due to the moderators and sponsors he called "hostile" and "MAGA hating."

Millions of Americans have eagerly awaited announcements on which candidates are going to run for the presidency.

President Trump declared his candidacy with Nikki Haley. Mike Pence and Ron DeSantis appear to be leaning. Larry Elder and Asa Hutchinson have added their names to the list. Robert Kennedy, Jr. dared to do likewise on the Democrat side while slick, uber-leftist Gavin Newsom tests the waters.

Seventy percent of Democrats do not approve of Biden trying to do it again. Michelle Obama has remained in the spotlight for years with her high levels of popularity along with her husband's presence and megawatt smile there to draw support.

On the same day, "Breaking News" burst on the Internet with the two big questions answered. Would the man called "Sleepy Joe" try to do it again? Would the "Most Admired Woman in the World" challenge him?

Simultaneous Signals

First, the former First Lady told fellow Black icon, Oprah Winfrey, "No Way Jose!" Some say this is just part of the scheme to save her from months of draining campaigning to later draft her in with greater drama and flair.

The two extremely wealthy and fabulously famous friends engaged in a televised chat for an upcoming Netflix special promoting Michelle's new, self-help book, "The Light We Carry." When the inquiry came near the end, "Michelle, my bell" stated she'd never ever run for president. "It's not in my soul!"

Do we believe her? She checks all the boxes: attractive female, super famous; black; could be the first woman president; is a media and Hollywood darling; and has mega donors salivating at the once-in-a-generation opportunity.

Okeydokey, done deal (for now). Time to complete her promotional book tour and return to one of the epic properties in her $30 million portfolio of properties in Martha's Vineyard, Hawaii and Washington, DC.

The spotlight now shifts to shine on Joe Biden. By now, the majority of us know the answer, aware the Democrat bench is basically bare.

When former presidents made their re-election declaration, they typically did it with great fanfare, cheering crowds, massive media coverage and energetic, patriotic music befitting the occasion. Not so with good ol' Joe, who played it safe by reading from his usual teleprompter rolling out the news with a 3-minute video in the middle of the night. He said America was being ruined by "MAGA extremists" ... and he was called to "defend Democracy!"

Stop. Look. Listen.

I am no fan of Mr. Biden, although I pray for him daily. Based on a biblical worldview, I trust you've found me consistent in objectively assessing his character and performance, pronouncing him an abject failure and one of our 3 worst presidents.

I join countless millions grieved by his inept leadership, lack of integrity and hypocrisy. He has failed to deliver on what he pledged to the American people in his embarrassing basement campaigning and inaugural address where he portrayed himself as the moderate "unifier" who'd bring us all together.

The Bible warns, "When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice. But when a wicked man rules, the people groan" (Prov. 29:2).

My articles and videos have been replete with warnings for over three years and, if we're honest, we must acknowledge the destruction he has brought to America. His incompetence has brought nationwide groaning as scores suffer, with many now admitting they didn't heed the warnings.

Charles Spurgeon's sermon, "The Warning Neglected" began with Ezekiel 33:5. "He heard the sound of the trumpet and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him." Will millions admit the mistake?

Yes, Biden won the presidency, but the emotional dislike of Trump was a factor as was the avalanche of media supporting Biden. Democrat strategists are convinced they can do it again.

Some Starting Steps

Reflecting upon what's currently going down politically with Biden's bid for re-election, in my regular video and weekly commentary I'll be offering what I trust will be helpful insights to guide us on the right path. I'll give you brutal realities about him as he smiles and says, "Vote for me in 2024! I pledged to unite the country, bring economic prosperity and restore respect around the world! Let's finish the job!"

Heaven help us to begin with three action steps: First, we must humble ourselves and pray; second, we must wholeheartedly repent; and third, resist the radical, extremist forces trying to topple America (turning it into a Marxist nation).

It's time for a Third Great Awakening as we expose the evil and reclaim our heritage as "one nation under God."

Here's the Deal: The future of America hangs in the balance. We really do need a sense of urgency and must come to grips with the gravity of the situation. As our election season gets underway shortly, may we all cry out to God for guidance in what we are to do to see a turnaround in America before time runs out. The promise still stands if we'll meet the conditions in 2 Chronicles 7:14. "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
