If Someone Wanted To Destroy America On Purpose…

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

“Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation. I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”

-Dr. Ben Carson on March 16th, 2013

That quote by Dr. Ben Carson does a great job of capturing what is taking place in the United States right now.  If you wanted to destroy the most powerful nation on the planet, the best way to do so would be to destroy it from the inside out.  Right now, America is more divided than it has been at any point in any of our lifetimes.  Anger and frustration are growing to unprecedented levels, and one recent survey discovered that the level of trust that Americans have in one another is at an all-time low.  Our families are falling apart and moral decay is systematically rotting the foundations of our society.  Meanwhile, the U.S. national debt is on pace to more than double during the eight years of the Obama administration and the rest of the world is losing more respect for us with each passing day.

Sadly, at this critical juncture in U.S. history the American people have twice voted to elect a totally unqualified con man to be the President of the United States.  To say that this scandal-ridden administration has been “corrupt” would be a massive understatement.  The following is a political joke that one of my readers recently emailed me, and I think that it does a great job of illustrating the current state of our government…


Bob: “Did you hear about the Obama administration scandal?”

Jim: “You mean the Mexican gun running?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean SEAL Team 6?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean the State Dept. lying about Benghazi?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean voter fraud?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean the military not getting their votes counted?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The NSA monitoring our phone calls, emails and everything else?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean the use of drones in our own country without the benefit of the law?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “Giving 123 Technologies $300 Million and right after it declared bankruptcy and was sold to the Chinese?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean the president arming the Muslim Brotherhood?” Bob: “No the other one.”
Jim: “The IRS targeting conservatives?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The DOJ spying on the press?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “Sebelius shaking down health insurance executives?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “Giving SOLYNDRA $500 MILLION DOLLARS and 3 months later they declared bankruptcy and then the Chinese bought it?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The president’s ordering the release of nearly 10,000 illegal immigrants from jails and prisons, and falsely blaming the sequester?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The president’s threat to impose gun control by Executive Order in order to bypass Congress?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The president’s repeated violation of the law requiring him to submit a budget no later than the first Monday in February?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The 2012 vote where 115% of all registered voters in some counties voted 100% for Obama?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The president’s unconstitutional recess appointments in an attempt to circumvent the Senate’s advise-and-consent role?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “The State Department interfering with an Inspector General investigation on departmental sexual misconduct?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “Clinton, the IRS, Clapper and Holder all lying to Congress?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean that 65 million low-information voters who don’t pay taxes and get free stuff from taxpayers stuck us again with the most pandering, corrupt administration in American history?” Bob: “No, the other one.”
Jim: “You mean the one where he lied and told us we could get better and cheaper healthcare or keep what we had if it was better for us?”



Not only has the Obama administration been extremely corrupt, they have also failed to deliver on almost all of the promises that they have made to us.  In fact, just about every major promise that Barack Obama has uttered has turned out to be a lie.  If you doubt this, just check out this list: “A List Of 23 Famous Obama Quotes That Turned Out To Be Broken Promises Or Cold-Hearted Lies“.

But it isn’t just our government that is falling apart.  The truth is that America as a whole has been declining for a very long time.

For example, American families have never before been in such horrendous condition.  If you doubt this, just read the statistics in my previous article entitled “27 Facts That Prove That The Family In America Is In The Worst Shape Ever“.

And it isn’t just our families that are in trouble.  Everywhere you look these days, you can see the signs of advanced moral decay.  Things have gotten so bad that even the mainstream media is talking about this.  The following is from a Wall Street Journal editorial that was published just a few days ago…

“What’s celebrity sex, Dad?” It was my 7-year-old son, who had been looking over my shoulder at my computer screen. He mispronounced “celebrity” but spoke the word “sex” as if he had been using it all his life. “Celebrity six,” I said, abruptly closing my AOL screen. “It’s a game famous people play in teams of three,” I said, as I ushered him out of my office and downstairs into what I assumed was the safety of the living room.

No such luck. His 3-year-old sister had gotten her precocious little hands on my wife’s iPhone as it was charging on a table next to the sofa. By randomly tapping icons on the screen, she had conjured up an image of Beyoncé barely clad in black leather, caught in a suggestive pose that I hoped would suggest nothing at all to her or her brother.

And so it went on this typical weekend. The eff-word popped out of TV programs we thought were friendly enough to have on while the children played in the next room. Ads depicting all but naked couples beckoned to them from the mainstream magazines scattered around the house. The kids peered over my shoulder as I perused my email inbox, their curiosity piqued by the endless stream of solicitations having to do with one aspect or another of sex, sex, sex!

The reality is that if someone actually wanted to destroy America from the inside on purpose, they could hardly improve on what is already happening.

And we were warned that this would take place.

On April 3rd, 1965 legendary radio host Paul Harvey issued a warning to America.  In this warning, he described what he thought the devil should do if the devil wanted to destroy America.  Sadly, the truth is that most of what Paul Harvey warned us about back then has now come to pass…


If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States.

I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”

To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”.

In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .

If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa.

And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me.

I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.”

With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons, but not wise enough to control them.

If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps.

In other words, if I were Satan,
I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.

Paul Harvey, Good Day.

      According to the legal definition of the word & the legal definition of the words that comprise its definition: War is taking place against the citizens of the United States of America, by the Government of the United States of America.
      According to the closest agreed upon definition by Supreme Court, the three stipulations that are required to call a situation “Martial Law” have been upheld in the United States of America for more than 20 years now.

      Historically, it was not placed into the Bill of Rights “Thou Shall Not Kill” because it was an irrefutable fact that there were Human Beings you could only deal with by killing them. They would destroy, rape, & kill relentlessly to achieve their aims while always having a contingency plan and never surrendering.

      The Revolutionary War; in essence, can be said to have taken place not just because of injustices and as a territorial dispute, but because a mentally unstable leader absolutely refused to take Responsibility or Accountability and chose to kill any who defied him in the process of this. The official date may now be December 9th of the year 2013, but the status of the standard citizens relations with their “Official” leadership has again reached the same point.
      Logically, Sanely, Irrefutably, there are only two plausible outcomes for the future of the citizens of the USA: Absolute Enslavement in a Totalitarian Regime the likes of which has never existed in the history of mankind, or Rebellion leading to proper counter measures leading BACK TO FREEDOM.

      Paul Harvey you are right. How about the 62,619 Homeless Vet’s on the streets of the United States. Obama said he will fx that to. See my comments below:

      Another Bob

      The Founding Fathers would be ashamed of all of us if they knew that 62,619 Homeless Veterans were cold and on the streets of the United States. See the research I have done below. You can find all kinds of organizations, including the Veterans Administration, that have committees and programs watching over Homeless Veterans, however we still have 62,619 Homeless Veterans and some families cold on the streets of the US WHY Obama said that he will have all the Homeless Vets off the streets by 2014. He can’t even fix a computer bug so how can he fix the Homeless Vets.

      Last month I had the honor to escort the remains of a Homeless Veteran from downtown Atlanta, Ga. to his final resting place. Between the VA and a local funeral home the expenses were covered. I belong to a group that is called Patriot Guard Riders. (Look them up on the Internet and find out how they formed you will be shocked.) Much similar to the American Legion Riders. Using their own time and money they form processions to escort military members to their final resting place. For the Atlanta Homeless Veteran we had almost 80 motorcycles in the procession. We escorted the Homeless Veteran to the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, GA While there, a cemetery person told me that they buried a 3 Star General the week before and he didn’t have half the people we had for the Homeless Veteran. People do care especially other vets.

      Sense then I have done a lot of research and found that the American Legion and other Military Service Organizations have committees addressing this problem however we still have, according to HUD No. 12-191, on a single night 62,619 Homeless Veterans and many of their families cold on the street in the United States. 2,000 in New York City alone. In the HUD report it stated that we had a seven percent drop in the Homeless Vet’s in 2012. The Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Eric K. Shinseki, stated: “While this is encouraging news, we have more work to do and will not be satisfied until NO Veteran, has to sleep on the street.” I wonder how many of the 7% reduction died of old age or starvation.
      HUD said the US Government gave 75 million to the Homeless Project for 2013. What happen to the money. The Government gives 50 BILLION to other countries each year., The top 10 Countries are: Tanzania, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Israel. And some don’t even like us.

      If you look in the 2012/2013 Directory of Veterans and Military Service Organizations you will find 144 Organization’s are to help Veterans. Such as the American Legion, AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans, Marine Corps League and many others. Some of them have committees dealing with the Homeless Veterans. However we still have 62,619 Homeless Veterans. Some organizations state as much as 100,000 Homeless Veterans are on the streets today. WHY!
      What happened to “WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN”.

      Fear not, for the day of the Lord is coming soon.

        … heard that before.

    • Mayhem

      A thought provoking piece and timely reminder no less, in my objective view (I’m a Kiwi) I see all of this coming to pass and agree that it’d be hard to do the job any better than it’s already being done.

      I love to read and it is how I learn so with this in mind i ask if the following quote from P Harvey is an oxymoron? “how to make lurid literature exciting”

      If I were Satan, I would have a schwarza mamzer son of a whore doing my will upon this Nation! :wink:

      If someone wanted to destroy America, they would look like, think like and act like the illegal African that is slumming in The People’s White House right now.
