Limbaugh: Public Domain | Beck: by Gage Skidmore

Armageddon, (probably Hebrew: "Hill of Megiddo"), in the New Testament, place where the kings of the earth under demonic leadership will wage war on the forces of God at the end of history." - Encyclopedia Britannica

Billions of people on Planet Earth do not believe in the prophesized eschatology of either the Bible, or the Quran. Unfortunately, there is no denying that the power to devastate humanity, by humanity, is a "clear and present danger".

On November 17th, 2010, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, once again, pleaded with the U.S. Senate to ratify the new START Treaty before the Party of "No" takes control of the House of Representatives, in January.

President Barack Obama, and his Administration, would like to de-escalate, rather than escalate the dangers of nuclear conflagration, by reducing the number of nuclear warheads that America and Russia have in their nuclear arsenals. You can read the details of the new START Treaty (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), with Russia, at the White House's official website.

With that in mind, should the world be worried that the Messiah complex of Mr. Limbaugh, mixed with his neurotic political agenda concerning "American exceptionalism", might cause the world's nuclear superpowers to become as nervous as a bunch of cats in a room full of rocking chairs? Is it not conceivable that the fundamentalist, religious shenanigans of Mr. Limbaugh could, eventually, lead to the end of life on Earth as we know it?

You bet it could.

Rush Limbaugh parrots, incessantly, that America was designed, by the Founding Fathers, to be a "Christian nation"; that America is the Judeo-Christian God's "favorite" nation (next to Israel of course); and, that America enjoys the "Providence" of that Judeo-Christian God.

Listen to Mr. Limbaugh during his keynote address to the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He was also there to accept CPAC's 2009 "Defender of the Constitution" award.

"We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. Liberty, Freedom. And the pursuit of happiness. Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. Thank you. Thank you."

Is the Constitution really "under assault"? Indeed it is. But that assault comes from Limbaugh's manipulations of founding history, and the gullibility of his minions. The "endowed by their Creator" line is from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. Thomas Jefferson, primary author of the Declaration, put a name to that "Creator". He called it "Nature's God", a term often used by the Deists of that era, and a term that cannot be found in the Judeo-Christian Bible, not once. Notice, please, that Mr. Limbaugh left out that whole "Laws of Nature" and "Nature's God" reference.

Was his attempt to associate the Constitution (The Law) with the Judeo-Christian "Creator", just a slip of the tongue, or was it intentional? One only has to look at Limbaugh's repetitive pattern of propagandist quote manipulation, of the Founder's words, to answer that question.

Look, for instance, at this example from the February 17, 2009 Rush Limbaugh Show, titled "John Adams Prophecy on the Constitution and Morality". Mr. Limbaugh is attempting to convince a caller (read that America) that John Adams (read that the Founding Fathers) meant for America to be a "religious" (read that Christian) nation.

After paraphrasing it the best that he could, Limbaugh told the caller that he, the caller, was "on the same page here as one of our most brilliant Founding Fathers, the second president of the United States, John Adams." Then, after a commercial break, Rush returned with the following correction:

"Here's the complete John Adams quote: "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.' That's John Adams and that's the full-fledged quote."

The problem? That's not any more honest than his first attempt. It is still not the "full fledged" quote. Here's the quote, without Limbaugh's deceitful manipulation.
