    Great article, Raul! I will respond starting off with and pivoting off that quote from David Horowitz’ book, Final Battle, that you included in your article: “Is America already an empty shelf of its greater self, and are its days already numbered? Only a fool would say with certainty, no.” In my view, the demise of the USA is not a matter of errors in judgment but of a malicious attack from within by the traitors of the Democrat Party and the Rino Republicans, coupled with an infiltration of Marxist ideology (disguised as the insanity of what has been termed “Woke” culture) that has infected all our institutions. Regarding the quotation from David Horowitz, I believe that he best addressed, in his fascinating book of 2018, Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America, what has destroyed the solid foundation of America, and the only solution to her Progressive demise: Namely, God and the Judeo-Christian ethic and specifically the Christian basis of our nation. I do believe that the U.S.A. has turned from her covenant with God and is being challenged to turn back to her authentic Christian roots. Even though Mr. Horowitz, whom I have read (I’ve read many of his books) and whom I deeply respect and honor, is not a Christian, and has not come to confidence and clarity in religious belief, he is humble and honest enough to see the essential value that the Christian vision and reality has provided for keeping America on the right track. That book, Dark Agenda, is well worth reading and greatly influenced my view and attitudes. I am still optimistic about the USA coming through this all because I believe that God has not at all lost interest in the America He anointed with his grace and continues to guide her to what remains great and true about this nation and her spirit that infuses the heart of her people. (May I also recommend Michael and Jana Novak’s book, Washington’s God, that is an excellent complement to Dark Agenda. I love your essay and I agree with your assessment, but I do not believe that America is doomed, even amid this ongoing crisis fostered by her traitors. And I do believe that America’s enemies burn with hatred against our real President Donald J. Trump because he is the man they cannot control or predict and stands in the way of their awful and treacherous plans.

      Dear Norman,
      Thank you for your kind words. I agree fully with your judgment that much of America has turned its back on God. In Washington, specifically, God has become a “backbencher.” And, thank you for recommending Novak’s book which I will promptly get.
      Stay well.

    This is a a well written, informative, valid, and timely eye-opening alarm to all of us who care about our country, our welfare, and the future for our grand-children. Raul is ‘like the Old Testament “Watchman On The Wall” who was assigned to stand guard from atop the protective walls around the city. The watchman was trained to Watch, Recognize, and Discern approaching enemies. Then he was required to ‘Sound The Alarm” to the city’s leaders so that they could corral-in the nearby citizens, lock the city gates, and mount-up the warriors to prepare for battle.
    Thank you, Raul, for “Sounding The ALARM”!!!!!.

    The essay is excellent. It touches on how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has viciously deceived the international community. Having grown up in China and now become a naturalized American citizen, it took me time to realize the evilness of the CCP. The international community always thinks the CCP is a political party and that the CCP would follow the political rule of democratic countries. NO. The CCP is an evil cult. It has no normal human moral values. It uses every means to rob the world and every means to cover its lies and evilness. In the CCP’s propaganda, the US is always portrayed as the number one enemy of China, and the CCP would defeat the US and take over the world at the end. The US eventually may not be the super dominant country of the world in the future. However, the world will become peaceful after the CCP and communism are eliminated from the world. Under this condition a super dominant country is no longer necessarily needed. The US can focus on improving the lives of the US people. We American people will have an even better life. Therefore, the most important mission of the US is to take down the CCP and eliminate communism. Our government should not be distracted from this number one mission by other international affairs.

    This analysis is absolutely fact and numbers-based and proves how our ‘government’ continuously destroys our society with a notorious mixture of mental and media infiltration. Only a true and independent leader with a deep understanding of how these government organizations work will be able to save this overindebted and run-down Roman Empire-style galley.

    Thank you for your laid out thoughts and facts. Anyone who could possibly try to debate these bold truisms by you and not see the clarity of real time information should be considered DANGEROUS!!!
    If I may, I want to reflect on a few things that make my head spin:
    Very true but my inborn thought process is to ask, how to fix this problem?
    To me this is a difficult challenge but a must do for educating the American public continuously through the local and national media. If Republicans can donate as much money as they do to get their people elected in each cycle then start taking at least half of that money and educate the faults that the competition continues to use to destroy this great country. This would take a lot of time and money and dedicated “American’s” who truly love their country to start this education process that would reach every child and adult that want to live here…
    If we looked back to the 1950’s, the Chinese Government were the laughing stock of the world. Very fe Americans would “buy” cheap products from China because of the quality of the products. They had a long term plan to stay the course and improve the quality and to entice companies to manufacture in their country. Their 100+ year plan was to become world dominate. Today, we see how long term planning works while implementing short term brilliance. So let’s give credit where credit is due.
    If we could get a large core of “True Americans” an environment that would be conducive to growing our manufacturing base through incentives, none to little taxes, it could be our biggest and last chance to gain our jobs again. Just stay the course to make it inviting… it’s amazing how much money is wasted by our Government, so let’s focus on a positive result!!!
    When our current Government makes it more acceptable not to work, our labor force mindset is changed to non-productivity.
    I absolutely believe that there are times for some Americans having unfortunate situations that put people in an unhealthy money situation. We can help in a short lived way so people don’t lose their self worth but can get back in the workforce.
    Socialism/ Communism needs to be taught to all children from Elementary School age to teach them how this ruins societies 100% of the time.
    Regarding President Trump, isn’t it amazing how he worked to enhance our competition with the world and truly helped the morale of the “blue collar employee”? The long term problem is not easing up on regulations, although very important.
    Most important is to attract companies here by incentivizing low taxes of no more than 10%. Some people (Liberals) would cry they need to pay more, a lot more…
    My answer to that is simple common sense. If we have more people working (which we would), there will be more taxes being collected from the workers.

    On another thought, it is amazing to me how people who work are forced to pay into FDR’s Social Security, a Government controlled situation that is threatened to hurt those who are in need of their money at retirement. Why weren’t they ever taught about money (in Elementary and High School)
    and the “Rule of 72”?
    The Government are the last people on Planet Earth to make these laws. Their track record of irresponsible spending is a total JOKE!!!
    Regarding our Economy, wouldn’t the RESPONSIBLE thing to do is for Congress to NEVER SPEND MORE than we have? And most important pass a law that we can NEVER do so!!!

    Incredible insight on your side…
    You’re at your best stating truth through facts. Our country has never seen such demise like we are seeing it now. Isn’t it amazing how many are fooled by the lies of the people who want to destroy this great country that has turned corrupt? The majority of our government live to be bought and get away with it daily.
    It really is “brainwashing” our children at an elementary age through our universities to create a mindset that pollutes the very meaning of what the United States stands for and of course what it was founded. This isn’t an easy task. We have to take back our schools by having teachers teaching the greatness of the USA!!!
    BUT we need strong leadership at the top who truly love our country… Trump/DeSantis would definitely be a help, too!!!

    Hello Raul,

    I read your essay… in a word I found it sobering. It is sad that we have such poor leaders in our nation. This reminds me of a quote:
    The Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw famously said,“Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve.”

    So, why has it come to this? I see a sort of moral decay where individual personal standards of excellence are being replaced with a substantially lower “acceptable norm” if you will.

    The disintegration of the family, the failure to properly prosecute criminal behavior, the acceptance of morally corrupt “leaders”.

    It will get much worse before it gets better. But, if it gets worse CAN it get better?

    Thank you for your efforts. Let’s hope good can win out over evil!
