The messianic couple: Bill and Hillary
By Michael Moriarty
James Carville, a Clinton loyalist, recently branded New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson a "Judas!"
Richardson, also a former "Clintonite", jumped ship, so to speak, and recently endorsed Senator Barack Obama as the best choice among Democrats for the presidency. Richardson responded to Carville's name-calling by labeling it "gutter" politics.
Regardless, these accusations have lowered the Democratic primaries all the way down to the level of the Holy Bible.
Bill Clinton should feel very comfortable down there since, at least according to Rev. Billy Graham, the former president is an "evangelist".
We all know that "Judas" is a "strong word" because Carville admits he knew it would make headlines, and CNN's captain of headlines, Wolf Blitzer, gave Carville an immediate interview for having not only used the biblical label but because Carville seems to have implied a certain "pay-off" by including the equally diabolical allusion: "thirty pieces of silver".
Bill Richardson as Obama´s vice-president? Is that the "thirty pieces of silver"?
The next question, of course, is: if Richardson is playing Judas, who is starring as Christ?
Fifteen years ago, a well-known film actor who had attended a Bill Clinton fundraiser at the home of Barbra Streisand told me that he thought the former President, Bill Clinton, struck him as "Messianic".
If that is at all true, then Bill's wife, Hillary, would seem a bizarre version of Christ's only female friend, Mary Magdalene … but … oh, well … let's just call Bill and Hillary the Messianic Couple.
I predicted in last week's editorial that "Hillary will be President!" Now, this Carville-inspired "Christ-Factor" has been in my private meditations on the "Clinton-Factor" ever since I'd heard the Messianic metaphor regarding "Bill" in the summer of 1993.
"A sense of entitlement", as Bill Richardson himself described the Clinton family's ownership-attitude toward the White House, does indeed fit with Bill Clinton's rather divine self-estimation, as confirmed by James Carville's casting of the former president as Christ.
Apparently "Bill" -- or at least one of his disciples, the one known as "James" -- believes that the head of the Clinton Global Initiative is actually the Second Coming of Christ.
Since Christ's Ultimate Return is prophesied in the last chapter of the New Testament, the Book of Revelations -- and, at least according to the author of Revelations, there can be nothing added to the Bible after Revelations -- one certain truth in the drama is that there is no re-appearance of Christ, in fact no need for a "Second Coming" until the "false prophet", the "Preacher" arrives to complete the diabolical aims of the anti-Christ, or tri-partite "Beast", as this penultimate evil is dissected in the Book of Revelations.
In other words, the Devil's final appearance on earth is as the ultimate form of hypocrisy, a "wolf in sheep's clothing", Lucifer posing as a Man of God.
Since, as my regular readers know, I can't possibly accept as authentic Christianity or Christian theology any minister, preacher, priest or Clintonite Evangelist who preaches legalized abortion, I have every right, because of James Carville's branding of Bill Richardson as Judas, to counter-brand Bill Clinton The Evangelist, the so-called "Progressive Baptist", as the very "Preacher", the Progressive "Beast" and the anti-Christ of Hypocrisy described in Revelations.
A bright CNN, regular viewer wrote in to that network, paraphrasing the famous election-debate remark about John F. Kennedy, "I know Jesus …. And Bill Clinton is no Jesus."
Waking up to the Messianic Mess into which the Clintons' attitude of self-entitlement has led them, these "revelations" of the bottomless self-esteem of Bill Clinton and the fanatic loyalty to the "Clinton Initiative" shown by James Carville, none of it, as I said in last week's editorial, will enable anyone, anything or any, even worldwide political movement, to stop Hillary from ultimately being President of the United States.
The Clinton Global Initiative will do "whatever it takes" to put the Clintons back into the White House.
So, following this recent uproar about "Judas", or about who or what portends the final fulfillment of the prophecies in the Book of Revelations, my question is: who or what will finally end the Clinton Reign over the White House?
If Bill Clinton is more the "false prophet" than the Christ, it is going to take a True Second Coming to divest the Clintons of their presumptive global ownership. What the "Second Coming" might be is the topic of discussion for next week's editorial.
