Why “Wag The Dog” Now?

https://i2.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/d/Z/3/D/1/b/roseofsharon-th.png     I kept thinking there was something so odd about what was going on in Dallas.  That’s when I remembered that ridiculous political trickery they call, “Wag The Dog”:  If one of their own does something that would end their political career, and possibly land their backsides in jail, they cook up some event that will succeed in taking the attention off that criminal politician, and onto it.  Hollywood made a movie about how that works back in the late 1990’s, thanks to good old Pres. Clinton, and his endless shenanigans, including his adulterous behavior with that intern in a side room off the Oval Office.   In the movie, though, I think their “Wag” efforts included starting an actual war in order to protect their beloved criminal president.  I never watched that movie when it came out due to suffering from such ‘Pres. Clinton fatigue’.  It had resulted in my suffering from an “overdose of bad news” caused by both Clintons.  By the time that movie came out all I wanted to do was forget all about both of them for good.  {Oops!  Did I say ‘for good’?!  Funny how that never happened.}

https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/Y/4/Z/j/b/R/police-car.svg.thumb.png     So, tonight, what do we see going on in Dallas?  That protest had been peaceful until the shooting began, with a mixture of blacks, whites, and Latinos, all out there together, doing lawfully what we are all allowed to do.  No one was more shocked when the shooting began than the leader of that peaceful protest.  Some guy[s], who were not associated with the protestors, just decided to dress up in [matching?] camouflage outfit[s], take his/their rifle[s], go inside a tall office building, then shoot between 10-13 cops, killing 3 of them, all while the peaceful protest is under way?  Why?!

https://i2.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/d/Z/3/D/1/b/roseofsharon-th.png     Just to cause trouble for everyone, especially for gun owners, and the police?  And, just who would stand to gain anything much from doing such a thing?!  I put on my ‘Thinking Cap’, and that’s when I remembered about that whole “Wag” scenario that it’s claimed certain politicians engage in when either their backs are against the wall, or they want something, but can’t get it except through underhanded, illegal means.  However, I think the “Wagging” taking place now is to not only distract, but to garner something that is wanted very badly by certain political individuals, at this time in our history: wholesale gun confiscation. 

https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/Y/4/Z/j/b/R/police-car.svg.thumb.png     After all, unarmed citizens can not defend themselves against armed, outrageously menacing thugs.  The Nazis always come back to mind when it comes to things like this, since it wasn’t all that long ago that the whole world had to face down thuggery from both Germany and Japan, in order to overcome that very same type of outrage against innocent, unarmed citizenry around the world.  If we are not allowed to arm ourselves for our own sake, and the sake of others, we become ‘sitting ducks’ for thugs who are armed.  And, trust me, it’s very apparent that criminals have no trouble at all obtaining both lots of guns, and lots of ammo to go with them. 

https://i2.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/d/Z/3/D/1/b/roseofsharon-th.png     The pretty white flower with the red center, that I’m using in this entry, is called a “Rose of Sharon”.  Here is what God’s word says about that flower:

“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.”[Song of Solomon 2:1 AKJV]

The One speaking in that verse has been determined to be the Lord Jesus Christ.  He IS that beautiful “Rose of Sharon”, along with the lovely “Lily of the valleys”. 

https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/b/0/b/6/11971485341744400639eljot_lily01_4.svg.thumb.png     And, we remember Him also through what we call the “Easter Lily”.  That’s why I can say with such confidence that, no matter what those who hate us might try to do to us, so long as the Lord Jesus lives we will always have hope.  Since He will live and reign forever, that means we, who trust in Him, will never be without Hope.  Hope in He who will give us eternal life because we trust in Him, and what He’s done for all mankind.  Without Him we would all perish with no hope whatsoever. 

https://i0.wp.com/www.clker.com/cliparts/Y/4/Z/j/b/R/police-car.svg.thumb.png     Therefore, no matter what’s gone on tonight, and what might very well continue taking place, until those responsible gain what they’re after, or we end by stopping them from gaining it, we can take heart in knowing that the Lord loves us all, and is our strength.   And, that God, our Father, is there waiting to here from us as we cry out to Him in prayer, asking Him for His help for us in the name of His Son, Jesus.  So, don’t forget to say your prayers tonight, and every night, and day, after this.  Because, God can not give us what we need if we don’t ask it of Him. [Amen]


” May the friendships you make,
Be those which endure,
And all of your grey clouds
Be small ones for sure.
And trusting in Him
To Whom we all pray,
May a song fill your heart,
Every step of the way.”   {Amen}
