Wrath of God Coming Down on the USA and Commonwealth of PA

By Gary F. Zeolla

 

      It is one thing for nine men in black robes to declare the killing of unborn babies to be legal in the USA. It is quite another thing for the American people to vote for the killing of unborn babies.

 

Killing of Unborn Babies the Deciding Issue

 

      Make no mistake about it, the “red wave” did not materialize in the 2022 midterm elections due to the desire of Democrats and sadly many Republicans to retain the “right” to kill unborn babies. That was very clear here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

      For Pennsylvanians to vote for the very obviously cognitively struggling socialist John Fetterman for Senate can only be explained by a comment by a member of The View (I forget which one). After the Oz-Fetterman debate, she admitted Fetterman was clearly struggling cognitively, but she said, “He could still raise his hand and vote to protect abortion rights.” And I am certain that was the mindset of many who voted for Fetterman.

      Admittedly, both GOP senatorial Candidate Dr. Oz and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano shot themselves in the foot by not allotting for exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother. Their opponents hammered them in ad after ad on those points. I will such “hard cases” in Part Two of my article on “Abortion Rights’ vs. ‘The Killing of Unborn Babies.’” For Part One, click here.

      But here, that position was just one of many ways both Dr. Oz and Mastriano were terrible candidates. I knew that and did not vote for either of them in the primary. But many Republicans did, many solely because Donald Trump endorsed them. Many other Trump-endorsed candidates across the country also lost. That is going to call into question Trump’s viability for 2024.

      However, that is for a later time. For now, all is not lost. It is still possible that Republicans will take control of the House and/ or Senate. But it will be by a slim margin at best for either or both. But it is clear the hoped-for red wave turned into a red mirage.

      That was seen in that both radical Democrat candidates for the US House here in the Pittsburgh, PA area also won their races. And again, both of them ran on the right of women to kill their unborn babies, while their opponents were not clear in allowing for exceptions for those hard cases. These two loses very well could make the difference in the GOP not taking control of the House.

      Meanwhile, the Senate could come down to a runoff in Georgia, just as it did in 2020. I cover that  runoff race in depth in Chapter Two of my book Tragic Ending to Donald J. Trump’s Great Presidency. Much of what I say there will apply to this runoff.

      But here, assuming Repubs do take control of at least one chamber of Congress, that will at least put a stop to Biden’s radical legislative agenda, and he will become a lame-duck for the next two years. There will be nothing but gridlock in Washington DC. That in fact will be a good thing, as it will keep Dems from doing any more damage to the country.

 

Ron DeSantis and Lockdowns

 

      The main bright spot for Republicans was Ron DeSantis’ landslide victory in Florida. His landslide was most certainly due to his Covid policies. Most especially, he did not utilize the medically useless and destructive lockdowns used in most of the rest of the country. He instead wisely protected those at high risk and let everyone else just live their lives.

 

      He gained significant national attention during the start of the coronavirus pandemic through his outspoken opposition to continued lockdowns and to mask and vaccine mandates, and eventually displayed an eagerness to wade into nearly any cultural divide (AP. 2022).

 

      I will be addressing the lockdowns issue when I post Part Two of my article “Update on Covid Deaths (Refuting Covid Lies by the Right and Fearmongering by the Left).” For Part One, click here.

 

Strong Pro-Lifers Won

 

      Another point in DeSantis’ favor is that he was strongly pro-life. In fact, he was one of several Republican governors who signed pro-life legislation who won reelection. In addition, every Senator who signed Senator Lindsey Graham’s 15-week abortion ban won (Washington Watch podcast, 11/9/22).

      I think what this shows is, when a candidate is wishy-washy about his stance on protecting unborn lives, it does not incentivize pro-lifers to come out to vote for him or her, but it is enough to incentivize pro-abortionists to vote against him or her.

      That was the problem with Dr. Oz. His horrid answer to the abortion question at the debate might have lost him the election. He said that the federal government should not be in the room with a doctor and a woman making a decision about abortion but that local officials should be. Fetterman played that clip in attack ads against Oz. That incentivized pro-abortionists and disincentivized pro-lifers.

      What Oz should have done is come out with a strong stance for protecting the life of the unborn. That would still have incentivized pro-abortions against him, but could have incentivized pro-lifers to vote for him.

 

 

Affront to a Holy and Righteous God

 

      But still, I fear it is still too late. For so many in the USA and the Commonwealth of PA to vote to continue the killing of unborn babies is enough in itself to bring down the wrath of God  It was not just votes for candidates, but four states had referendums on the killing of unborn babies, and all four voted to continue the “right” to do so.

 

      Michigan voters on Tuesday voted to enshrine abortion rights in the state’s constitution, a move that will help block a decades-old abortion ban from taking effect, CNN projects….

      The California Constitution will protect the right to an abortion after residents on Tuesday passed a ballot initiative to enshrine the right in the state’s governing document, CNN projects….

      Voters in Vermont on Tuesday approved an amendment to the state’s constitution that abortion rights supporters say will protect “every person’s right to make their own reproductive decisions,” including about pregnancies, abortion and birth control, CNN projects (CNN. Abortion).

 

    Voters in California, Michigan and Vermont enshrined reproductive rights in their state constitutions, while Kentucky voters said no to a proposal that would have rejected abortion protections in the state constitution (USA Today. Abortion rights).

 

      Voting for candidates who support the killing of unborn babies and voting to amend state constitutions to enshrine that “right” is an affront to the holy and righteous God who gave breath to those unborn babies. Nothing but a full-scale revival of repentance and turning to God will save us now.
