An open letter from actor Jon Voight to President Obama

All Americans should beg to sign their names to this letter!  It is encouraging to see that not all American voices are fearful of speaking out and of wanting to be heard.  Let us all hope and pray that the courage of those like Mr. Voight will infect the rest of us who are very afraid for the future of our country.

Let us pray and hope that we will be infected with the strength and courage to stand up and fight against those whose sole intent is to destroy our Republic.


An open letter to President Obama from Jon Voight, by Jon Voight

June 22, 2010

President Obama:

You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies. You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's enemy — and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world.

You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated.

You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics.

With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel,

Jon Voight

A Cautionary Fable: Catching Wild Pigs

A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (an exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter.

The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.

In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'  The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.

The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming.

When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again.

You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.

Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America. The government keeps progressively pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc..

While we continually lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time.

One should always remember:
  • There is no such thing as a free lunch!
  • A politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.
  • If you see that all of this wonderful government "help" is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to explain it to your friends.

If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life may God help you when the gate slams shut!

Keep your eyes on the elected politicians who are about to slam the gate on America.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have"

Another "Nutshell"

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them.

This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

Let us hope those who made this man president have regained enough of their senses to start undoing what they helped to create.

Honest Protests?

Honest Protest?
This is the face of the protesters against the Arizona immigration law!  Threats to shoot policemen, extraordinarily unreasonable and completely unrealistic demands, unhesitating breaking of federal laws . . .

And T.E.A. Movement activists were called "terrorists?"

As an immigrant, now a proud naturalized American, I must ask these folks:  Where in heaven do they think they are "owed" anything from anyone?

Their behavior is an insult to all honest immigrants who came to this country legally, who worked hard for years, who made their way to the point they considered "success" for themselves and for their families.  On what possible earthly basis do they place their demands for "free" anything?

I find their demands repugnant.  Not only do they break this country's laws by coming here illegally in the first place, but on top of that breach, they have the nerve to make outrageous demands for things that even natural born Americans do not have.

On what basis on earth do they think they deserve to be "given" all those "free" things they demand?  How on earth do they think they are "owed" those things?

It is outrageous!

Worse, we have a government pandering to these extortionist demands.  President Bush had his part in it, along with Senator McCain, with their attempts in passing "amnesty," instead of enforcing established federal laws.  It is no wonder, then, that the group currently in Washington would want to merely expand on that premise to the extreme -- open the gates, disregard our own laws, let the voting blocks in!

I would say to the Mexicans in Arizona, California, and elsewhere that they should just stop their stupidity.  They are not owed a thing by this country.  If they had chosen to come to America just as millions of other immigrants chose to come here -- legally, as opposed to sneaking across the border, they would easily access all options to be successful in their lives. 

As legal aliens, they would have had the same options as all other legal immigrants who came here: follow the laws of this country, pursue happiness, and achieve whatever measure of success your own efforts and hard work permit.  Whatever they desire for themselves they can work for and attain through the sweat of their brow, just as millions upon millions of immigrants have before them.

They are "owed" no more than the opportunity, just like everyone else in this country.

If they are incapable of legally achieving what they desire here, there is an entire world out there from which they can choose to try to be successful: Cuba, for instance, or Jamaica, or Iran, or Haiti ...  or, dare we even suggest it . . . Mexico?


He's Done Everything Wrong 

I think it is morally reprehensible that people like Mort Zuckerman, chairman and editor in chief of U.S. News & World Report and publisher of the New York Daily News, now start their mea culpa for their part in doing such an intense disservice to our Country! These are supposedly astute, intelligent, knowledgeable, worldly, yada-yada people to whom we "little people" are expected to look for advice and guidance!

Their concerted, intense, and brainless support of Mr. Obama (Yes we can!) as he campaigned for the presidency was base and crass: their motives were more than suspect as is being proven in recent admissions.  The goal in supporting Mr. Obama was solely to achieve the primary liberal dream of electing a black man to the high office of President of the United States of America.

The reasoning utilized, that "it was time" for a black man to be elected, supposedly to "prove" that our Country has moved past a supposed racial divide was revolting by any one's measure.  As I noted to several friends who succumbed to the kumbyah moment, it is just as dishonest and racist to elect a person just because he is black, as it is to not elect someone solely on that basis.

In the case of Mr. Obama, there were millions, mountains of solid, reasonable, non-race based reasons not to elect him, but thanks to Mr. Zuckerman and his cohorts in the press, their only intent was to put a black face in the White House, at any cost, for any reason.

During 2006, 2007, and 2008, in what has to be the longest presidential campaign on record, it did not matter in the least to professionals such as Mr. Zuckerman, and capitalists such as Oprah Winfrey and the gaggle of successful, rich Hollywood supporters what this man was preaching.  At the time, everything was "tingles" down one's leg and a breathless, almost orgasmic reaction to a clearly empty suit.

Well, here we have the results.  In less than 18 months as President, Mr. Obama and his cabal have practically destroyed our economy, our health care system, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.  Mr. Zuckerman and his "peeps" are now scrambling to justify the unjustifiable.  There was no earthly reason to elect this man in the first place -- except that he would be the first black president!  A thoroughly racist premise, as far as I'm concerned.

Now, we are expected to simply accept that a man such as Zuckerman did not discern a hint of a problem when he heard Mr. Obama tell Joe Wurzelbacher that he would have to "share the wealth"??  This comment was among the most telling of the many made by Mr. Obama that clearly, starkly, and frighteningly stated his most fundamental position: socialism.

We are now expected to believe that a supposed capitalist such as Zuckerman did not immediately see the meaning of that response? We are to accept that the legions of "stars" and "celebrities," all intense capitalists themselves -- as proven by their wealth -- did not understand what Mr. Obama represented??

When Mr. Obama prattled on about "fundamentally changing" our Country, did it not occur to a supposedly successful journalist (I use that term very loosely, of course) such as Mr. Zuckerman to ask a silly little question such as, "How do you expect to do that?"

Oh no!  No such uncomfortable, disconcerting questions were asked; the response then, would not need to be examined, nor would the motivations behind their intent to elect Mr. Obama need to be examined.  Much, much easier to just turn off one's brain and succumb to the "good feelings" exuded by Mr. Obama's extraordinary (or so we were told) rhetoric.

I would remind Mr. Zuckerman and his ilk that a solid 47% of We the People did not  naively and stupidly succumb to the "celebrity power" of this man . . . those are the people to whom Mr. Zuckerman and those like him owe an immense apology. We 47% are the people truly suffering and intensely fearful of what we face and what our country faces, unless drastic changes are made in November.

Despite all the shenanigans of the likes of moveon.org, SEIU, the "new" Black Panthers, and the intense, non-stop lobbying of the blind, mindless, robotic "youth vote" by the elitists in Hollywood and Washington, Mr. Obama's win was not a "mandate to rule."  He was not elected by a "landslide;" he was not even elected by what could be termed an "overwhelming majority!"

I would strongly suggest to Mr. Zuckerman and his friends that if they truly regret their actions in 2006, 2007 and 2008 and if they truly realize the depths of their error in having supported Mr. Obama, that they put their money where their mouth is and support Conservatives for Congress in November . . . and help to save our Country from the path of total destruction on which they helped to place us.

"A Time for Courage"

There seems to be a bit of "controversy" about this speech ... whether the man who gave it is black or not ....

I say, what difference does it make?  I wish I could have written this speech!

It does not, should not make the least bit of difference what race this AMERICAN is!  It only matters, as is excruciatingly clear in his words, that he is an AMERICAN who loves, and is afraid for, his country.

The words, thoughts, and intent should be celebrated and spread to cover our country as we go through this very difficult and dangerous period in our country's history.

Let us all join in echoing his stirring words like an anthem throughout the land.

AT THE TEA PARTY, a black man, Dr. Donald May delivered this message from the courthouse steps in Lubbock. He electrified the audience like I haven't seen in a long time. His delivery was masterful. I am sorry you could not see him in action. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy his words. The news media were there, but not one word of this man’s appearance ever appeared on TV or in print, even though he completely dominated the scene.

This is A Time For Courage

April 15, 2009 – 11:49 pm

"Ladies and gentlemen, This is a time for courage.

"We are gathered here today on the Plains of West Texas in common purpose. We are here to remind our government that this is our country, We the People are still in charge, and our government is still our servant and not our master.

"Our Nation’s founding document is The Declaration of Independence. It tells us that our rights come from God and not from a small group of elite men and women.

"Our Constitution starts with the words “We the People.” Our Constitution was written for ordinary Americans like you and me. Our Constitution protects us from our government and from the politicians.

"Our President has complained that our Constitution gives ordinary people too much protection.He has ridiculed us for the high value we place on our Bibles, our guns, our personal property, and our liberty. He tells us we do not deserve to keep the money we have earned. We are told freedom has not worked. Personal responsibility, free enterprise, and Liberty have not been effective. Our government will now make more of our decisions for us. Other than our military, I can think of not one government agency I have ever found to be helpful.

"And speaking of our military, how about those Navy Seals blowing the heads off those three terrorist pirates? Don’t you just wish our entire government would function with such efficiency, professionalism, and courage? We watch in disbelief as our beloved United States is weakened economically, militarily, and morally by a radical President and his eager accomplices. What has taken generations to build is systematically destroyed and replaced with the same Socialist evil that brought poverty, destruction, and despair to untold hundreds of millions.

"The problems we face today have occurred because we have not defended our Nation from Socialism. For too long we have allowed the wrong people to make the worst possible decisions.The Bible warns us of class hatred. The radical leadership of our government daily fans the evil flames of class envy. Our European and Canadian friends beg us to not make the same Socialist mistakes they did. The President of the European Union warned our President that his Socialist economic plans are taking the world down the “road to Hell.”

"The path to power for Socialists includes taking God and guns from the citizens. Without spiritual and physical protection, people cannot defend themselves and their liberty. They soon become slaves. We are angered that our President apologizes for the exceptionalism and heroism of the United States of America. We are deeply troubled he told others the United States is not a Christian nation. We are angered that we have been called cowards and racists because we oppose Socialism. Socialism is not racial. Socialism is an equal opportunity destroyer. We are angered that a recent Department of Homeland Security report has singled out our military men and women who are returning home as being radical threats. The report also characterizes you and me as right-wing extremists and radicals because we favor smaller government and lower taxes.

"You and I are average citizens who believe just like most of our fellow Americans. We want our government to leave us alone and to keep its hands off our money, our religion, or guns, our private property, and our lives. We demand that our government stop spending money it does not have.

"Stop confiscating our money and private property.

"Stop printing money.

"Stop subsidizing Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the other failed financial institutions and companies.

"Mr. President, stop appointing tax cheats to positions of power and influence.

"Mr. President, secure our borders.

"Mr. President, do not divert money from our missile defense, F-22 Raptors, and other vital military equipment. This gives encouragement, aid, and comfort to our enemies. Protecting us is your number one job.

"Mr. President, do not give voting rights to millions of illegal aliens and felons. You have no more right to create new voters for your benefit than you do to use our money to buy the 2010 and 2012 Elections.

"We gather peacefully here today because there is a growing concern for what our government is doing to us and to our future. We fear for the very survival of our Republic. Yet there is much to make us hopeful and to fill our hearts with optimism and courage. This is still our country! The Constitution of the Unites States belongs to We the People. Our Constitution still protects us from our government.

"Call every possible elected official, including our President, Vice President, and the Speaker of the House. Demand that they stop stealing our money and giving it to ACORN and their other political supporters in order to buy votes. Call Senators Cornyn and Hutchison, and (your) Representative. Thank them. Urge them to do much more. Remind them now is a time for action and not for campaigning.

"Volunteer to work on our 2010 Census. Confront ACORN. Keep our Census honest. We must not all ow our President to take control of our Census for his political advantage.

"We must replace as much of our far left Congress as possible in 2010. Get involved. Do not let ACORN control our 2010 Election.

"Talk with someone every day who does not understand our nation’s history and our great heritage. Tell them why the United States is a good and prosperous nation. It still remains that brightly lit city on the hill. It still is the best hope for all mankind.

"Talk with all of the young people you can find. They are our future. Many do not understand what they have and that their future is being destroyed.

"Encourage your elected State officials to pass legislation that will protect us from our Federal government. Governor Rick Perry and others are doing that right now for Texas. Thank them and pray for them.

"This is a time for strong peaceful action. Let us pray that We the People can quickly return our government to its Constitutional responsibilities. Our President and Congress were elected to be our servants and not our masters.

"May God help our President and Congress to quickly realize the error of their ways and stop their reckless and unwarranted spending, cut our taxes, and reduce the size of our Federal bureaucracy. If they do not, may God grant us the courage and determination to vote them out of power next year.

"May God richly bless and protect each of you, and our Constitution, as together we pursue Liberty!"
