Keeping Score in America: Chapter Seven: "Skittles anyone?"

By Michael Moriarty
web posted July 22, 2013

While listening to Honegger's Symphony No. 1, a letter from my adoptive mother in Italy arrived.

This is how I replied:

Dearest Mamma,

Finding a way to crawl out of the loneliness! That journey might inspire an inordinate need which in turn becomes a talent, hopefully of exceptional size.

I just began this week's editorial piece for ESR when your e-mail arrived. In my writing today, I want to pick up basically where I left off last week, in my music, my hiding place.

The hope while you compose is that possibly somewhere down into the future someone might find your musical creations worth listening to more than once. The life that created it certainly wasn't made out of simple mathematics, although a divine simplicity becomes the ultimate destination of my Odyssey!

Only music offers unconditional love for whatever it is one is feeling! Composing it harnesses everything into its own unique meaning.

Why I've begun an opera that involves words?

In the midst of this growing madness of the world, I'm obliged to create a story in which the God I know and love moves invisibly and protectively around singing creatures not at all unlike myself and Irene.



Honegger is important for me, if only because he makes the entire artistic community of Europe more comprehensible. Through him I can hold, in opposite hands, both Bach and Stravinsky. I can hear both ends simultaneously, while, at the same time, with pieces such as his Pastoral For Summer and his symphonies, the first and the fourth particularly, we can hear the range of his musical vision, from an Impressionist's instincts to the formalities of symphonic form.

Honegger's Joan of Arc at the Stake. It demands, of course, a great actress in the role of Joan and a commensurately generous compassion from the audience.

Here is a clear introduction.

Here, however, is the only complete offering of it on Youtube, albeit in five different sections.

Ainsi soit-il!

So be it!

Perhaps more horrifying than even Christ's crucifixion, the burning of Joan at the stake?!

That it happened at all still seems incomprehensible.

Then again, what has happened and is happening to the United States of America seems equally excruciating. It's a form of American national suicide, culminating in Barack Obama's "fundamental transformation" of the greatest nation in the history of the world into a docile corner of this Progressively Marxist New World Order, once seemingly run by the United Nations but actually controlled by the International Communist Party.

Obama's "fundamental transformation of the United States" demands a suicidal commitment on the part of American millions.

Obama clearly has that support and Abraham Lincoln's words become doubly prophetic:

"America will not be destroyed by a foreign power. If she dies, it will be by suicide."

I've reminded my readers of that quote before.

It only seems necessary to recall it again.

Why? I can never give up hope that America and Americans might see their self-destructive pilgrimage and turn back.

The Progressively Marxist New World Order is now clearly prepared to provoke Civil Wars everywhere, from Syria to the United States itself.

For what reason?

For three reasons:

  1. To destroy all opposition to the New World Order
  2. With the pretext of Civil Wars and a World War III, to cut the population of the human race down to one third of its present and overly fat size.
  3. To look forward to the day when over four billion human beings are dead and gone ("Good riddance!") and the likes of Vladimir Putin, Barack Hussein Obama, the Red Chinese Politburo and what's left of the American "Progressives" run what is left of the human race.

That's pretty much The Progressively Marxist, New World Order Game Plan.

Will they pull it off? Who or what is there to stop them?

The Progressively Marxist New World Order must do it now because the chance of another Barack Hussein Obama being elected again in the United States of America no longer exists. He and his herd of sycophants have ruined the notion of a sane Democratic Party of the United States.

The Republican Party has, with the Bush Family proven themselves to be an eager and willing servant of a New World Order run by the United Nations. Bush Jr.'s return to Iraq with the American military was done not to protect America but to please the United Nations' New World Order.

Hillary, should America survive to another free election, would carry the nightmare of the Obama Nation on her back, a back that will most certainly break under the load of the Obama Nation and the world's memory of it.


After what Obama is planning to do with and to the United States of America is over, martial law will still exist and elections in America will have been suspended.

"Now is the time to clench our fists around our enemies!"

That is the inner cry of The Obama Nation.

"This time it's we who will be packing the gun! Skittles anyone?"

I never said they were all that bright.

Obama's "useful idiocy" while serving the ends of both Red China and Vladimir Putin's Neo-Soviet Russia may be the wake-up call that most of the human race has needed.

Is the Free World as "stupid" as the International Communist Party thinks it is?

Or does God Himself enjoy pretending that He's stupid? We will soon find out. ESR
