Special Report: The Media, Politics, Scandal and Scripture

Special Report: The Media, Politics, Scandal and Scripture
Vol: 4 Issue: 29 Tuesday, January 29, 2002

Since the announcement of the collapse of Enron, the media and the DNC have gone to great lengths to prove George Bush was directly involved.

The hope, of course, is to either discover or create a Whitewater type scandal that the DNC can use to unseat the Republicans during the mid-term elections.

The DNC had eight years of unfettered control of the country during boom times that screeched to a halt as soon as they left office. Eight years of scandals, trials, jail sentences, questionable business deals, election improprieties, Chinagate, etc., later, the DNC claims the GOP ruined the economy.

Increasingly, the evidence suggests the DNC ran riot with the inheritance run up by previous administrations, and left the following administration holding the bag.

Look For the Partisan Label

There are those who see the world who view politics solely from the perspective of partisanship. If one is anti-Democrat, one is immediately assumed to be pro-Republican. Not true. Instead, the term ‘partisanship’ is used to hide a multitude of sins.

Employing the “Partisan” label is a variation of the “victimization” excuse. Ask Jesse Jackson about his girlfriend or his financial empire, and be ready to be accused of racism. Ask Bill Clinton about perjury or questionable Chinese connections or the Lincoln bedroom and be ready to be accused of partisanship. Dismissing an allegation as being ‘partisan’ is as good as denying it. Better, even.

One can be anti-Democrat without having ever heard of the Republicans. The cynical effort by the DNC to prolong the agony of those years for political gain is ample reason by itself.

Although one could counter-argue the GOP did something similar during the Clinton years, Clinton provided the fuel, the gasoline and the matches himself. All the GOP did was smell the smoke and look for the fire.

Enron Vs. Global Crossing

While the DNC and the media try to paint the administration with scandal simply because Enron asked them for help [which was refused], nobody is paying any attention to the 4th largest bankruptcy in history — Global Crossing.

Global Crossing was a top Democratic donor. Its chairman, Gary Winnick, once donated a million dollars to the Clinton library in exchange for a golf game with the president, arranged by the current chairman of the DNC, Terry McAuliffe.

In the 1990’s McAuliffe operated out of an office in downtown Washington that belonged to Winnick — to help the mogul “work on deals.” McAuliffe also invested $100,000.00 in Global Crossing. He sold just before Global Crossing announced its Chapter 11 deal and its stock plunged to thirty cents a share.

While McAuliffe takes every opportunity to paint the administration as ‘heartless capitalists’ profiting from Enron’s collapse at the expense of the ‘little guy’ he doesn’t mention Global Crossing. While the little investor got mauled in America’s 4th largest bankruptcy, the Drudge Report says Terry McAuliffe made eighteen million dollars!

While there is no evidence at the moment, the Enron scandal may yet touch the current administration. But its fascinating the watch the way the media scurries to ‘dig out the story’ on Enron and the GOP while ignoring Global Crossing’s political ties. All the while, solemnly assuring America that there is no liberal bias in the media.

Summary:

What does US partisan politics have to do with Bible prophecy? The Bible says that the antichrist will appear on the scene, not as the Dictator of the Tribulation, but as a man of peace. He will be a charismatic political leader who will somehow be able to convince the world to worship him, to accept his Mark and to entrust him with global authority. Watching the media and the DNC shows how he does it. Nowhere is the power of the media to shape minds and opinions more evident.

The Clinton administration raised propaganda to an art form, arguing down was up, black was white, (“it all depends on what your definition of the word ‘is’ is”) until a majority of Americans believed the Paula Jones case was about sex and not about perjury. The propaganda machine that is being perfected is being perfected for a purpose.

The Apostle John said it will be so effective that, when unleashed, “power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” [Rev 13:7]; to “cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” [Rev 13:15]; until, finally, ” he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” [Rev 13:16-17].

Such power, on a global basis, was never possible at any time in history prior to this generation. Today, that power rests in the hands of a few men with differing agendas who control the media. One day, it will rest in the hands of one man, with a single agenda, who controls them. The antichrist.
