Paul Harvey’s “If I Were The Devil” Speech In 1965 Is Spot On Today

In the past few days, If I Were the Devil: Paul Harvey (Warning for a Nation) has gone viral.  If you have not heard it, or haven’t heard it for awhile… please listen to the whole thing.  Harvey recorded this in 1965… sounding like he was looking at 2012.

Paul Harvey’s “If I Were The Devil, Our Father Who Art In Washington” speech in 1965 is spot on in 2012. Paul Harvey Aurandt, better known to the world as Paul Harvey, penned the article in 1964. The following audio presented below in his own words is from 1965.

Paul Harvey was the BEST. No one on the radio was or is as good as Paul Harvey was. He could deliver a story on radio better than anyone could with pictures and media. Harvey made you think. He made you see. He made you feel. But, most importantly, he made you believe!

At a radio seminar several years before his death in 2009, Harvey walked into the room and immediately commanded everyone’s attention.  He received a standing ovation before he even uttered a word.

Harvey was a genius at his craft. He delivered daily broadcasts for ABC Radio Networks and captured us all with The Rest of the Story. His listening audience topped 24-million people per week at the peak of his career. And that doesn’t even begin to take into account the people who read his newspaper column or took any opportunity to hear him speak live.

Although the following audio is from 1965, you would think he recorded it yesterday. That’s how brilliant he was… and his words are a testament as to how low we have sunk. “Good Day”!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    Chilling. No way would you believe this was recorded over 45 year ago.


    2 CHRONICLES 7:14 : if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
    2 Chronicles 6:37 : and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captivity and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong and acted wickedly

    I have been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or weblog posts on this sort of topic . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this web site. Studying this information So i’m happy to say that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I found out just what I needed. I most surely will continue to give this a glance regularly.

    This is former Secretary of Agriculture and deceased Mormon prophet, Ezra Taft Benson’s talk, “Stand Up for Freedom” speech given in the 1960s shortly before he was made president of the LDS church. The speech is an hour long and I encourage you to watch it in its entirety.

    He adresses the scary trek we’re on towards socialism, and what we can do to stop it.
