The crack reporting team at the Worldnetdaily has a major scoop, an article about how Biblical prophecy relates to the State of the Union speech. As usual, it’s really just an ad for the books they sell from the guy quoted in the article, Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cohn.
President Obama’s state of the union address was loaded with sweet delights meant to bedazzle America’s long-suffering middle class as he signaled economic prosperity for all is waiting just around the corner.
But the author of a New York Times-best-selling book about America’s future in a post-Christian society was not impressed.
He sees dark storm clouds closing in on Obama’s rays of sunshine, citing “harbingers” that the country is sliding headlong toward a collapse – with blindfolds securely fastened.
“Listening to the president’s State of the Union address, I was reminded of ancient Israel,” said Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Mystery of the Shemitah” and “The Harbinger,” which draws parallels between America’s falling away from God and a series of judgments that will come as a result.
“The people (of Israel) convinced themselves that they were coming back stronger than before,” Cahn told WND. “And then it all collapsed, and the judgment came.”
Hilarious. He could, of course, find those same “parallels” with ancient Israel in pretty much every speech given by every leader of every nation for the last few centuries. What political leader doesn’t tell the people that things are getting better because of their policies?
You gotta hand it to the Worldnetdaily, they’ve got a business plan and they stick to it.
Step 1: Publish a book by an obscure nobody.
Step 2: Have them give you quotes, no matter how vacuous, on every political issue that comes down the pike.
Step 3: Have one of your “journalists” write an article as if those quotes were somehow news.
Step 4: Profit.
