An Omen

First, it was the flies.

Then came the bees — THOUSANDS of them.

Next came the rodents.

Next came the Gulf oil disaster that is taking on biblical proportions.

Now, it’s thunder, rain, and lightning so ferocious that Obama’s Memorial Day event in Illinois had to be cancelled.

Do you think someone upstairs is trying to send a message to Obama? LOL

Maya Randall of the Wall St. Journal reports on May 31, 2010 that “heavy thunderstorms caused” Obama to cancel a Memorial Day wreath-laying ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill. Thunder and lightning started rolling in over Elwood, south of Chicago, just as the ceremony was to begin.

“Excuse me, everybody listen up,” Obama told the crowd at the event, according to a White House pool report. “We are a little bit concerned about lightning. This may not be safe. A little bit of rain doesn’t hurt anybody but we don’t want anybody struck by lightning.”

Randall writes:

As people trudged, drenched and barefoot, across flooded fields to take shelter in available vehicles, a wreath Obama laid earlier blew over. White House spokesman Bill Burton walked van to van in the downpour to alert attendees that the ceremony would be canceled. Instead, Obama would visit with service families who had crowded onto buses. […] Obama and his family have been staying in their pre-presidential digs in Chicago for the holiday weekend. The president will head back to Washington on Monday afternoon.

It really doesn’t help that as the Memorial Day weekend began, Teabagger-in-Chief Obama proclaimed June to be the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.

In the announcement on the White House website, Obama also vowed to “give committed gay couples the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple” by repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, while conveniently leaving out the fact that gay couples can obtain those “rights and responsibilities” as domestic partners. Obama also promised to secure gay adoption rights, end “employment discrimination against LGBT Americans” (hello, ENDA!), as well as end the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

On top of the flies, bees, rodents, scientists from the USDA (U.S. Dept of Agriculture) are now warning that the worst grasshopper outbreak in 30 years could strike ranches and agricultural land in the Great Plains states this summer, between late July and early August.

Keep it up, Obama! It’ll be plague of frogs and locusts next.

  2. Yes, keep it up! Look for the signs! I find it so incredible that he has made this proclamation for this month-calling evil, good, and good, evil! Sickening! Absolutely sickening!

  4. Well, Joan, Fs, & erinyes,

    Actually, plagues are not that far fetched. This country has turned away from God and when the Jews did that they got in a heap of trouble, not to mention Egypt. If I were Osama Obama I would be very careful not to incur the wrath of the Almighty.
    I remember reading somewhere in the Bible about facing an angry god. If we are going to encounter His wrath I want to get out of here–Jacksonville might be on his list.

  5. Good point Ron! God has revealed Himself as a loving God, but he has also revealed Himself through anger when warranted.

  6. Yes, Joan, more than once….We don’t always see how he works but if one watches closely it’s obvious when he’s not too happy.
    Just look at Jim Bakker, or Jimmie Swaggart, pilars of Christianity, but they came down quickly when they played the role of pretender.

    God works in strange ways, like Osama—I think God put him there just so the rest of us can see what fools we’ve been all these years believing our leaders.
    Now we get to pay the price for our ignorance. Unfortunately, I am most guilty and deserve what ever he deals out.

  8. Something such as this, if true, is far more frightening than the thought of meeting Dracula on Halloween night–how disgusting! If any of it is true, about the smell of sulphur coming off of those two, I wonder if that might not mean that their inner selves, aka their very souls, are no longer inside, but, instead, inside of them might not reside the dead spirit of a fallen angel–which would make them the real ‘zombies’, that so many people keep trying to scare us with, by talking about the so-called “zombie apocalypse” they tell us is going to take place–rotting corpses walking around, “seeking whom” they “may devour”?

    I honestly believe those who qualify as ‘the spawn of satan’/satan’s seed, are the real walking dead zombies, aka the tares, who already live among us, but it’s tough to tell who they are–tares/weeds that look so much like the new wheat they sprout up next to, but who reveal their true nature right before the harvest, when the gatherers can begin taking them out to burn, then the wheat can be safely harvested–the tares/weeds among us are totally dead inside, but outwardly, they walk and talk and blend in with the rest of us–for now. I think they just might qualify to be what Russ Dizdar refers to as being members of, “The Black Awakening”–if they ever become fully cognizant and begin to organize on a larger scale, I think then that would qualify as a genuine “Black Awakening”.
