Smoke-filled backroom

When we speak of politics being played in an ill-gotten manner, we think of big party bosses with cigars dangling out of their mouths in a smoke-filled backroom making deals that hurt some and help others. This is not, however, the modern version of smoke-filled backroom politics. Today, it’s much more sophisticated—voter machines that apparently weigh votes toward a candidate; dead people and illegals not only voting, but voting en masse through ballots that were sent without request and received without authentication, and courts with judges who rule based on party affiliation rather than the rule of law. This is where America stands today. It is where Republicans were taken to school by Democrats.

It doesn’t make it right. And it may be years from being exposed. But the bottom line here is that this presidential election and the upcoming Georgia senate election are examples of how the Democratic Party used and is using its political boss prowess to take an election. The game plan was simple. Register as many people as possible and make sure their ballots are sent in and judges will take care of the rest. In short, the Republicans knew it was coming. They complained about it early on. But they were inept at doing anything about it. They didn’t adjust. They didn’t counter. They, quite frankly, got out-smoked in the smoke-filled back room. “Unfair,” we shout. “Illegal,” we exclaim. Yes, on both accounts.

But the burden of proof is on the Republicans who were flat-footed and erroneously relied on the rule of law when it came to voter fraud and well-placed judges, who sided with their democrat party and bent the law to justify the fraud. In politics it makes little difference whether it is legal or ethical, it’s whether you can get away with it. And that’s what has happened. We know the ultimate outcome is that unless these terrible shenanigans are corrected, Americans can rest assured that they will never elect another president or representative again. It will be determined by the backroom oligarchy, the puppeteers of special interest and globalism. The party affiliation might change—Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, but the agenda will, with little differences, remain the same. It isn’t right or just, but it is what is happening.

We are seeing a real time example of Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” The very next verse instructs us how to overcome this evil day by putting on the full armor of God and “having done all, to stand.” The ray of hope is that we as a nation are resilient. We have ways of correcting these problems. They take time. Laws will change. The political pendulum will swing. But we need to act with the full armor of God for all this to happen—belt of truth; breastplate of righteousness; shoes of the gospel of peace; the shield of faith; the helmet of salvation; and the sword of the Spirit. This is far stronger than a smoke-filled back room. Let us unite for right and stand.
