A symbol of what happens to a nation that defies truth, God, and law; or, Synchronicity on a national scale

In preparing for a trip today, I kept remembering that this Republic of ours is no longer. Then I happened to take a look at Drudge. I was shocked.
God works in strange ways, but if he was consistent in the divine wrath thing he would have long ago turned Nancy Pelosi (D., San Francisco) into a pillar of salt for looking back at Sodom.LA replies:
To quibble, Pelosi didn’t look back at Sodom. Pelosi represents Sodom.LA writes:

In the photo The Washington Monument does indeed look like Excalibur being held up against the darkness. It even appears to be rising out of the water. A memorable image.Alan M. writes:
Ed H.’s and your comments are very interesting. I believe there is actually quite a bit of spiritual symbolism on the mall, with Lincoln sitting in his chair, gazing upon the reflection of the Washington monument in the reflecting pool. There is a both an inner and an outer meaning that are similar. The outer meaning is that we can only know nature’s God indirectly as he is reflected in nature (i.e. natural law). The inner meaning is that we can come to know about God internally again indirectly and when our internal self is purified and still. Both involve contemplation but of a different sort depending on the object of our gaze. In both cases, God is the male principle (the obelisk) while creation is the female (water). This side of the resurrection, we cannot see God face to face. It is more a pagan or masonic symbolism; but Christianity, being the fullness of the truth, contains what is true in other traditions.Steve D. writes:
Apparently, the storm was a natural phenomenon known as a “derecho,” but one which defied all the typical qualities of such a storm. A Washington-area news station posted this on the Internet (emphasis added):Alexis Zarkov writes:
If any place qualifies as a modern-day Sodom it must be San Francisco. Within something like 30 years, San Francisco will almost for sure experience a major earthquake—“the big one.” We have six major faults in the Bay Area, that have not had a rupture in over 100 years. The San Andreas fault runs right through the city across the bay (parallel to the Golden Gate Bridge) and into Marin County. I expect the city to suffer a devastation of biblical proportions when “the big one” hits. San Francisco had no building codes between 1907 and 1950, and a large fraction of the houses are pure junk—movie-lot quality. When the Big One hits it will be extremely temping to blame the devastation on the wicked wicked ways of the inhabitants who have chosen to defy the laws of nature, man and God. Over the last several decades, I’ve watched that city change from a very pleasant place to the non-stop theater of the absurd. I think it’s now legal to run around completely naked. The city officials are absolute lunatics. This is end-stage liberalism.
