Cauldron of Corruption

If you’ve ever seen Macbeth, you’ve likely heard “The Witches Song.” 

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble
Fire burn and caldron bubble.

The song then goes on to list the ingredients the witch tosses into the brow—fillet of snake, eye of newt, toe of frog, wool of bat, tongue of dog, and so on. Yummy stuff. Then we find these lines: 

For a charm of powerful trouble
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

For whatever reason, the images presented in this little rhyme put me in mind of a particular political party. I’ve been watching the Democrats for years, adding ingredient after ingredient into their cauldron, hoping we would still find the end result tasty. 

Eye of abortion.
Toe of gender fluidity.
Fillet of globalism.
Wool of open borders.
Tongue of censorship. 

Toss them all in the pot and what’ve you got? 


I can call it ‘corruption’ based on the following definitions from

  1. Dishonesty: It is corrupt for a political party to behave dishonestly, especially if they happen to be the ones with all the power. We’ve seen so much dishonesty from The Left that it’s hard to narrow down a list of their dishonest dealings over the past four years. We might start with the Russia hoax, a lie that many still believe. And then there’s the censorship of conservatives. Oh, and the false narratives. I’d probably better stop or I’ll be here all day listing the many times and ways they’ve behaved dishonestly. 
  2. Inducement to wrong by improper or unlawful means. They’re passing laws that most of us don’t agree with. They don’t represent us. And yet, they force things through, regardless of our thoughts or feelings. And what they can’t force through the House and the Senate Biden will take care of in an Executive order. Or two. Or three. Or fifty-three. For example, it’s wrong/improper for him, with one swipe of the pen, to end the jobs of thousands of pipeline workers, especially during lockdowns and quarantines. It’s improper for him to assume the entire country will jump onboard the new “gender” rules. You get the idea. Those on The Left don’t really care how any of the rest of us feel. They will have their way. Period. 
  3. A departure from the original or what is pure and correct. Here’s the biggie, folks. You don’t see Republicans trying to reshape culture by forcing us to agree with things that go against our morals. If anyone had told me even twenty-five years ago that we would one day be talking about post-birth abortion, I would’ve thought they were crazy (or, worse, deranged). If anyone had said, “Hey, there’s going to come a day when there are seven or eight genders and you have to be okay with all of them. And you also have to be okay with all of them inter-marrying. Oh, and by the way, when your elementary school son decides he wants to become a girl, you can’t stop him. It will be his choice, not yours.” These new “rules” we’re being forced to follow are corrupt, folks. They are a departure from what is pure and correct. 
  4. Decay. Decomposition. This is what we’re witnessing right before our very eyes. We’re watching America’s ideals decompose. Our morals are decaying with every new culture shift we’re being forced to swallow. It’s like a rotten tooth, filled with infection. We need to pull the proverbial tooth and put the country out of its misery. 

Democrats are thickening the brew, even now. They’re trying to force conservatives to speak as they speak, walk as they walk, and believe what they believe. And they’re doing it all with the help of the media and Big Tech, who are doing an admirable job in making it all look completely palatable and even good. 

In essence, they’re doing what is described in these lines from the song: 

For a charm of powerful trouble
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

They are attempting to cast a spell on us. They think, if they add the ingredients one at a time, we won’t notice how disturbing the brew is. But I’m here to tell you, it’s too disturbing for me. And I refuse to give myself over to their spell. 

It’s time to wake up, to push the goblet away, and to refuse their poison. We can take this country back with enough people saying, “No!” We can resist the temptation to give in, give up, or give over our God-given rights. 

Most of all, we can—and must—drink from a different cup. 

The time to guard against corruption and tyranny is before they shall have gotten hold of us. It is better to keep the wolf out of the fold, than to trust to drawing his teeth and talons after he shall have entered.
Thomas Jefferson
