I am doing some speculating, but the Bible does say, "A prudent man
foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished" - Proverbs 22:3.
With the abrupt resignation of entrenched U.S. House Speaker John Boehner effective the end of October, as a result
of great conservative dislike, huge concern over funding of Planned Parenthood, and the national Budget due
to expire midnight September 30 -- it sure looks like a lethal combination to me toward a serious government shutdown.
Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in Newsmax.com: Boehner Resignation a "distraction" as House Tackles Budget -- she uses the word "seismic."
Newsmax says, "U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy
Pelosi said on Friday the resignation of Republican House Speaker John Boehner was a "distraction" amid efforts
to pass a spending bill to keep the government open and "time will tell" how it will affect negotiations.
Pelosi, reacting to Boehner's announcement that he would step down, said the decision was "seismic"
for the House of Representatives, which is currently working on spending bills to keep the government from shutting down at
the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30."
Again, there is clearly huge pressure in congress
to defund Planned Parenthood in light of the recent series of horrendous inside video exposures concerning their
widespread selling of fetal body parts.
With all the hubbub on the web about somekind of world
economic crisis closing in on us, this "perfect storm" will be interesting to watch.
