The New York Daily News had a full-page headline that read, “God Isn’t Fixing This,” a pointed jab at a suggestion that many Americans pray that God will intervene in America’s struggle with radical Islam.

Neighbors of the Muslim couple who killed 14 people and wounded 14 more in San Bernardino, California this week said that they had suspicions about the couple but were afraid of saying anything about if for fear of being accused of “profiling.” Meanwhile, it was just released that the woman involved in the attack reportedly swore allegiance to ISIS online.

An incident at Fort Hood, Texas where Maj. Nidal Hasan screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he gunned down several unarmed soldiers was ruled “violence in the work place” by the Pentagon.

President Obama, always reluctant to admit that Islamic terror has anything to do with the violence in America, upon hearing about the recent slaughter in San Bernardino immediately started blaming it on inadequate gun laws.

Hillary Clinton has decided to follow Obama in his decision to never properly identify our radical Islamic terrorist enemies, refusing to even say the words.

Many of our college campuses have been taken over by students who think they can create a Utopian atmosphere, whereby they can live in a cocoon of absolute political correctness, absent dissenting opinions, banishing all who disagree with them and ignoring the realities of life in the real world.

Our national debt, now approaching nineteen trillion dollars, is being basically ignored as the interest grows to unsustainable proportions.

Obamacare is coming apart at the seams, leaving a confused public wondering what happened to the honeyed promises of lower premiums and coverage for every American.

Meanwhile, Russia and China continue to modernize and strengthen their military, and American forces languish in political limbo, all the while losing our most able combat officers at an alarming rate.

Our national nightmare is becoming reality as we begin to realize the extent and viciousness of the terrorists who have found their way into our country, and we watch in horror as vulnerable youth who were born here become radicalized by social media or in mosques are readied to attack the unlimited soft targets that the American way of life presents.

And yet, in the face of all this turmoil, this looming fiscal catastrophe, this social upheaval, the supposed leader of the free world never really takes his head completely out of the sand long enough to realize that there is no time to tread water until the end of his term and pass all his problems on to the next president.

The time for dealing effectively with ISIS and the other Islamic terror groups is way past. At best, even should he come out of his shell and mount an all-out attack, he would be playing catch up after allowing years for the enemy, who he even refuses to name, to dig in and develop sleeper networks and sophisticated social media.

America is literally coming apart at the seams, and if we don’t get strong leadership soon, the tears are going to widen and allow the things that make American life so special to dribble out and be lost as we become afraid and distrustful of neighbors, worried about our jobs and the welfare of our families and their futures.

Since incompetence begets incompetence, much of America’s leadership infrastructure desperately needs replacing. Political yes men and political cronies need to be banished and replaced with capable men and women who buck the bureaucracies and clean house, getting rid of the deadwood and redundancies that plague and clog up our system with red tape and politically correct junk.

I’m not covering any new ground here; I am simply trying to call attention to it.

The next election, not just the presidential election but the congressional and state races, could well determine the kind of America we pass on to our kids or maybe even if we have an America to pass on to our kids.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem

God bless America
