John Voight’s plea to save America

Hollywood conservative and staunch Donald Trump supporter Jon Voight released a video “Plea to Save America” on Thursday, urging Americans to vote for the Republican candidate in next month’s election, which the actor called the “most important in American history.”
The actor, who recently sparred with Democratic contributor and Hillary Clinton supporter Robert De Niro over the latter’s disdain for Trump, appealed to Americans to vote for the only candidate who can “save our America.”

The full transcript of Voight’s remarks are below:

My dear fellow Americans.

We are all feeling tremendous anxiety with only a few weeks left to the election. This will be the most important election in American history.

We were once a country of freedom, and now we’re becoming a country of tyranny.

We are witness to our own people burning down and looting our cities. Ferguson, Missouri, Milwaukee, Orlando, Florida, Baltimore. We are all witness to our own people killing our policemen. Islamic terrorists have killed thousands of people all over our country, and Hillary and Obama want to be politically correct and pretend all the killings are not happening.

How many Americans are aware of George Soros? An evil man, who turned hundreds of Jewish people over the Nazis to be exterminated during World War II. He was interviewed on 60 Minutes, and was asked does he feel guilty for what he has done. And arrogantly, he said ‘Absolutely not. If I didn’t do it, someone else would have.’

Soros is a billionaire, who made most of his money manipulating currencies and almost bankrupting many countries. He supports hate groups, who are responsible for taking down our cities. And he is a close friend of Hillary Clinton, and a major supporter of her campaign.

Robert De Niro is a millionaire, as are so many of our Hollywood stars who are voting for Hillary, and who have absolutely no tolerance for anyone with a different opinion, forgetting that that is what our country is founded on: freedom of choice. But they will not be affected by Hillary’s open borders. Only our poor and middle class will suffer.

Thousands of refugees will flood our nation, and no one will know the good guys from the bad guys. It will kill our economy, which is at an all-time low now under the years of Obama’s presidency. And Hillary boasts of how proud she will be to continue Obama’s legacy.

No one can afford health insurance now. Prices for healthcare have gone through the roof thanks to Obamacare. Our once reasonable healthcare is gone.

With Hillary as President, we will lose our Second Amendment right to bear arms. Freedom of religion will be attacked, and Hillary will try to stop all conservative voices on TV and radio. Our highest court will become Socialist, and she will restrict what America was founded on, our freedom to become a small business owner and pursue our own personal dreams.

She has blood on her hands from the Benghazi terrorist raid. Four of our American patriots died, and when the parents stood over their loved ones’ coffins, she lied to them about the cause of their sons’ deaths.

The pendulum of freedom is not balanced. Hillary and her followers are on a crude campaign to stop and degrade all of Trump’s followers. Her words were echoed loud and clear for all Americans to hear. Hillary said Trump’s followers are a basket of deplorables. They are un-redeemable.

May God protect the real truth, and may Donald Trump win this presidency. He will save our America, and he will certainly make it great again.

Atheism’s Fateful Flock.

Atheism’s Fateful Flock.

By Bill O’Reilly for BillOReilly.com – Thursday, January 23, 2014

So an atheist walks into a church. If you’re waiting for the punch line, it’s not a joke. According to a recent AP report, something called “atheist mega-churches” are springing up across the USA. There’s music, talks about science, maybe a sermon, but one element is missing: God.

Atheism is chic. An organization called the Secular Student Alliance has more than 400 affiliates at American colleges and high schools, a 500% increase over the past few years. Another group, American Atheists, will hold its annual convention in April in Salt Lake City, right there amid the Mormon faithful. The group’s motto: “Think Again.” I would say the same to them.

Meanwhile, book stores are filled with authors declaring that “God is Not Great,” God is a “Delusion,” and you are a moron if you believe in the Deity. The secular press, of course, loves these books and the reviews are largely favorable.

That’s not to say there aren’t believers in the mainstream media. Soon after swimmer Diana Nyad completed her remarkable swim from Cuba to Florida last year, she described herself as an atheist who is in awe of “the beauty of this universe.” Oprah Winfrey got in hot water, pardon the expression, for informing Nyad that she is therefore not really an atheist.

Polling the folks about faith is tricky, but most surveys show that about 90% of Americans believe in God. Impressive, but that’s down from 98% in 1967. And younger people are less considerably likely to believe than their parents.

Hollywood plays a role in this trend. According to the book Celebrities in Hell, a number of big stars may be aligned with the universe, but not with the force that most of us believe created it.

The book quotes the following:

– George Clooney: “I don’t believe in heaven or hell. I don’t know if I believe in God.”

– Angelina Jolie: “There doesn’t need to be a God for me.”

– Carrie Fisher: “I love the idea of God, but it’s not stylistically in keeping with the way I function.”

Indeed. Believing in God is not very stylish in mainstream media circles these days. The question then becomes, is there anything wrong with that? After all, we have freedom from religion in America; the Constitution makes it clear that no power in this country has the right to impose religion on anyone.

So the atheists have clear sailing, and I say: Thank God. People of faith should be challenged and made to think about their beliefs. Critical thinking in all areas makes your mind sharper, your philosophy stronger.

Back in 2007, I was looking forward to debating the most successful of the atheist proselytizers, Richard Dawkins, who wrote The God Delusion. He basically says that science can explain everything and no one has any direct evidence there is a God.

But I knocked him out in the fourth round with this right hook: “[The earth] had to come from somewhere, and that is the leap of faith you guys make – that it just somehow happened.”

Dawkins replied: “You’re the one who needs a leap of faith. The onus is on you to say why you believe in something … you believe in, presumably, the Christian God Jesus.”

“Jesus is a real guy,” I said. “I’m not positive that Jesus is God, but I’m throwing in with him rather than throwing in with you guys, because you guys can’t tell me how it all got here.”

“We’re working on it,” Dawkins said.

“When you get it,” I shot back, “maybe I’ll listen.”

But the atheists will never get it. The universe and the earth are so complex, so incredibly detailed, that to believe an accidental evolutionary occurrence could have led to the nature/mankind situation we have now requires a giant leap of imagination.

Richard Dawkins and I had a rematch a couple of years ago when he wrote a book aimed specifically at children. “The book is about science,” he told me, “and everything about the natural world can be explained by science.”

I chastised Dawkins for promoting atheism to youngsters. “You want children to reject God and religion,” I told him, “and you’re trying to get to the kids and say you’re an idiot if you believe in God.”

Richard Dawkins and all the other non-believers are free to think and say whatever they want. As long as they don’t attack people of faith and leave the kids out of it, I have no problem with them. As my eighth grade teacher Sister Martin once said, “Faith is a gift.” But not everybody gets to open the box.
