Nothing New Under the Sun, Part II: FDR and Obama

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, left-wing extremist president:

  1. Prolongs the worst financial crises of his lifetime, the Great Depression, by suffocating the economy under the weight of massive social(ist) programs, rather than letting the economy grow out of depression
  2. In the years prior to Pearl Harbor, refuses to aid our allies in Europe, despite desperate pleas from them, against the onslaught of Hitler’s National Socialist Party, the primary target of which is the Jewish people

Barrack Hussein Obama, left-wing extremist president:

  1. Prolongs the greatest economic disaster of his lifetime, the Great Recession, by suffocating the economy under the weight of massive social(ist) programs, rather than letting the economy grow out of recession
  2. Refuses to aid our allies in Israel and North Africa, despite desperate pleas from them, against the onslaught of Islam’s Muslim Brotherhood, the primary target of which is the Jewish people

I have been noticing the eerie similarities between the administrations of Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), and Barack Hussein Obama. Today’s post, in effect, combines two observations I have written about before:

  1. I have written articles explaining, from the Bible, how God uses weather and natural disasters to chastise America for its mistreatment of Israel and/or the Jewish people.
  2. I have written an article explaining, from the Bible, that history repeats itself over and over in our fallen world– that is, there are templates for events in human history that simply never change, and never will until the Lord returns.

Again, today’s post combines these two observations. I want to start with the idea that history repeats itself over and over in this fallen world, proving God’s word true when it states, “there is nothing new under the sun.” One can lay historical templates over different periods in history and find perfect matches. With this in mind, I have noticed that the historical template laid out during the FDR years is being played out once again during the Obama years.

Recently, I was watching the PBS documentary on the Dust Bowl, and my jaw dropped. There in front of me, recorded on old black-and-white film decades ago, leftist president Franklin Delano Roosevelt was commenting that human beings actually caused the Dust Bowl with their farming methods. This is the same propaganda we hear today– man (rather than God) causes hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. And the solution offered by leftists back then is, of course, the same solution they offer today, more dependence on almighty government! They use every excuse to steal more money from us and gain more control over our lives. The left never wastes a good crisis:

Getting back to the PBS series, here is an excerpt from The Dust Bowl website on

THE DUST BOWL chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the “Great Plow-Up,” followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. (From, underlining by

This is called smoke and mirrors. They throw in the term “man-made” and then, oh by the way, there was a “decade-long drought” too. Does anyone want to tell me how a decade-long drought is man-made???

So, no matter if we see leftist politicians in grainy black-and-white video, or high-definition digital color, they never change, because as the Bible says, “what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

But it is God’s part in this repeating historical template that fascinates me most. At the beginning of this post, I listed some of the striking similarities between the leftist administrations of FDR and Obama– dire financial crises, social(ist) programs designed to suffocate the economy, and looking the other way as empires hell-bent on Jewish genocide rise to power. Those are eerie similarities indeed. But more eerie than the similar political conditions, is a natural-disaster phenomenon occurring during Obama’s administration that mirrors what happened during the FDR years: extreme  drought.

A devastating drought gripping the Midwest and nearly 80 percent of the country is proving catastrophic for America’s agriculture industry, according to a report released Monday by the National Drought Mitigation Center. It’s the most widespread drought since 1956, and experts say it rivals the infamous Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Natural disasters have been declared in more than 1,000 counties in 26 states, and weather-related crop losses could hit a record. ~ Kevin Fallon, The Daily Beast, 2012

The fact that Obama’s drought is severe enough to be verbally compared to FDR’s Dust Bowl is stunning enough. But there’s more. The FDR years came to be symbolized by a unique natural-disaster resulting from the extreme drought: massive dust storms.

We have all seen these photos that are the signature of the FDR years. These massive dust storms swallowed whole towns in the midwest and southwest. What is so eerie is that it is happening again!

Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:10

Within Christian culture, there is a popular cliché that goes like this: “America is not in the Bible. Therefore, America will not survive the end times.” This belief, like many other beliefs in modern Christianity, is born of (and perpetuated by) the fact that the “Bible-believing” church is actually the commentary-believing church. People hear ideas stated from the pulpit, from Christian radio, and from Bible commentaries, and they take them as Gospel truth without following Paul’s advice in Acts 17:11 and checking these facts against what the Bible says. I have warned against this over and over on this website. If one reads the Bible, not the commentaries, one comes away with a very different likelihood for America– that is, the likelihood that America actually does survive, and is used by God in the end times to confront his enemies and fulfill his word. Read about it here.

I mention this because of a glaring omission made by the prophets of gloom and doom who say that America will not survive the Obama years. That omission is the fact America did survive the FDR years. In fact, we survived and came back to be stronger than ever after World War II, a war in which God used America to save his chosen people, the Jewish people from genocide. Will he do it again? I believe so.

Look back up to the top of this post. I mention that FDR refused to help our allies against Hitler “in the years prior to Pearl Harbor.” As I have shown in this post, the FDR years are remarkably similar to the Obama years. Will we see a massive attack on America from the Islamist forces Obama refuses to confront? I believe the answer is yes, and I believe the Bible specifically points it out:

He [the Antichrist] will attack the mightiest fortresses [the USA is the mightiest military power in the world, by far!] with the help of a foreign god [Allah]… ~ Daniel 11:39

I do not know when this will happen, or even if it will happen during Obama’s time in office. But if this verse indeed refers to America, then after this attack, America is drawn into World War III, just as it was drawn into World War II by the attack on Pearl Harbor. If this is America, is her role in World War III described in the Bible? I believe so:

“‘In the pride of your heart you say, “I [the Antichrist] am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.” But you are a man and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god. “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘Because you think you are wise, as wise as a god, I am going to bring foreigners [USA] against you, the most ruthless of nations [Don’t believe the USA is ruthless? Which is the only nation that has ever dropped nuclear weapons on cities full of civilians?] they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom and pierce your shining splendor. They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. Will you then say, “I am a god,” in the presence of those who kill you? You will be but a man, not a god , in the hands of those who slay you. You will die the death of the uncircumcised at the hands of foreigners [the USA]”. ~ Ezekiel 28:1-10

The Bible is always proven true.
