There is a myth that the Jews run the world, or Hollywood at least, and that is why so many celebrities support Israel. Well, not hardly, but the following is a list of gentile celebrities who support Israel. This list is by no means complete but it is a start. If anyone seeing this wants to add to the list, or contest a name on it, please let me know.
Re: .(Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem write open letter calling Israel’s actions ‘genocide’; NY Daily News
When people step out of their sphere of familiarity and take on a cause with a background of sheer ignorance, they just can’t connect los puntos (the dots)! Ay, que lastima (what a pity)! Such is the case of Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and others.
These “voices of justice,” 100 Spanish activists who have just awakened from a stupor, speak out for the poor Palestinian children, these flores (flowers) who are being killed because they are intentionally placed with the rocket launchers by their fellow jihadists, so that the body count may be increased to sway public opinion.
The Muslim women and children are commanded to stay in their homes, mosques, schools and hospitals that contain the missiles and launchers. They are told not to heed the warning leaflets that Israel sends to give them ample time to leave the war zone. No shelters for them; Hamas uses those millions of dollars in humanitarian funds for tunnel construction and weapon purchase and storage. Even CNN covered the news about the tunnels, the tunnels that were built with the help of many children, resulting in the death of at least 130. Sr and Sra Bardem missed this unconscionable inhumanity.
What of the Israeli flowers, the three Jewish students who were kidnapped and murdered? Not a whisper from these distraught entertainers. What of the first rocket discharged – from Gaza? Not a murmur. What of the thousands of rockets fired from Gaza? No outcry from the Spanish for the Hebraicos. They will not acknowledge the post-traumatic stress syndrome of the Israeli children (Jews, Christians and Muslim), or the depression of the citizens’ living in constant terror or the increased number of miscarriages. The blinders they wear are all-encompassing.
These poor misinformed believe that the blockade prevents entry of foodstuffs and other goods from entering Gaza, when nothing could be further from the truth. The Turkish flotilla was blocked because they contained weapons and explosives; they were shown on television. Gazans live quite well and have ample food and clothing and supplies sent by the UN, Europe and America. Israel supplies their water, electricity and much more. They don’t have to work for any of this, and the deliveries come by truck through Israel. These handouts have been in place for Palestinians for decades, more than for any other people. Muslims deny Jews' entry into their lands, but want entry into Israel (for carrying out jihad) when they are not Israeli citizens and when their Islamic doctrinal texts demand death to the Jews (and Christians). Why is there a blind spot? Israel recently opened a hospital for Palestinians in need of better healthcare. Was this ever done anywhere else by victims for their attackers? Israel is one of the most humane and caring civilizations on Earth, and may be judged by their deeds as first responders in worldwide crises and their treatment of patients regardless of identity.
The French prime minister recently announced his recognition of the scourge of Islam, and vowed to fight anti-Semitism, warning of the connection between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism (what’s happening in Israel today). The Spanish can’t make the connection. They have forgotten what happened to their ancestors, when the Mohammedans conquered Spain in 711 AD and taxed, subjugated, and mistreated Christians and Jews until the Reconquista in 1492. Do these entertainers realize that the Muslims have returned to Spain and that this new invasion is well underway to becoming conquest?
The Spanish have forgotten the stories of the Visigoth king, whose head was severed with the Sword of Allah, impaled on a pole, and paraded through town. Rather, these “stars” would encourage the Islamists to succeed in Israel and, emboldened, continue their destruction through the rest of the Middle East and Africa, progressing through Europe and the Americas, until the global caliphate is established.
If Hamas were to cease fire, there would be peace. If Israel were to cease fire, there would be Jewish bloodshed, as there has been since the beginning of Islam, and at the moment Israel was voted a sovereign state. The Palestinians have created a propagandist tale of Israeli occupation, also untrue. Israel left Gaza in 2005. The Palestinians are the squatters and Hamas is the occupier in the land that was designated for the Jews in the Ancient Bible and by the Balfour Declaration (1920), the League of Nations (1922), and formally by the United Nations (1948).
Did these heroes of the silver screen describe the 23,519 attacks by Muslims, since 9/11, as genocide? Or the 2500 Syrians killed during Ramadan alone? Where is the conscience of these artistes who cannot grasp that Islam is against them, their craft, and their children? Islamic law does not permit their films or welcome their talents. However, perhaps these talents are truly not worthy of veneration if they cannot even connect some very simple dots.
I would like to share a great article by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform blog, entitled Welcome To Terminus (also found at Zero Hedge). Welcome To Terminus is taken from the television series The Walking Dead. Whether you watch the TV show or not, you can relate to the current conditions in the United States of America under Barack Obama and the Zombie virus infected world of the Walking Dead. While readers may not agree with everything in the article, it is very thought-provoking and well worth the read. Here is an excerpt to get you started:
“Life improves slowly and goes wrong fast, and only catastrophe is clearly visible.”
I was a late arrival to the Walking Dead television program. I don’t watch much of the mindless drivel passing for entertainment on the 600 worthless channels available 24/7 on cable TV. I assumed it was another superficial zombie horror show on par with the teenage vampire crap polluting the airwaves. Last year a friend told me I had to watch the show. I was hooked immediately and after some marathon watching of seasons one and two, I understood the various storylines and back stories. What the show doesn’t openly reveal is the deeper meanings, symbolism, and lessons we can learn from viewing human beings trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. In my opinion, the horror and gore is secondary to the human responses to horrific circumstances and the consequences of individual and group decisions to their survival.
As the end of season four approached, the disbursed characters were descending upon a place called Terminus. They were drawn by the intriguing and hopeful signs posted at various railroad junctions promising sanctuary, community and survival. Of course the name Terminus does not sound very inviting or hopeful. There are multiple possible meanings regarding Terminus. The Roman god Terminus protected boundary markers and sacrifices were performed to sanctify each boundary stone. The bones, ashes, and blood of a sacrificial victim, along with crops, honeycombs, and wine, were placed into a hole at a point where estates converged, and the stone was driven in on top. Maintaining boundaries and sacrifice are major themes throughout the series.
The show is set in the metropolitan Atlanta area of Georgia and the surrounding countryside. It just so happens that during the 1830s Terminus was the name of a settlement at the end of the Western and Atlantic railroad line. That settlement is now Atlanta. Terminus is also the title of the final poem ever composed by Ralph Waldo Emerson. The poem focuses on a conversation between the author and the god Terminus, discussing the author’s forthcoming death. The message of the poem is to resist fear and prepare for death. The destination is worth the journey.
“As the bird trims her to the gale,
I trim myself to the storm of time,
I man the rudder, reef the sail,
Obey the voice at eve obeyed at prime:
“Lowly faithful, banish fear,
Right onward drive unharmed;
The port, well worth the cruise, is near,
And every wave is charmed.”
We are only given a short time on this earth and the end of the line will be the same for everyone. What matters is how we conduct ourselves during our own journey towards our personal Terminus. Have we served as a virtuous example for our children, sacrificed for others, and benefited humanity or have we displayed greed, avarice and selfishness during our trek through life? As we approach our own meeting with destiny, the actions and morality of individuals will matter. I don’t know the motivations of the writers creating the themes for the Walking Dead, but the show connects with me on a number of levels. I look around and see hordes of zombies everywhere.
Zombification of America
“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited
The vast majority of the population in the post-apocalyptic world of the Walking Dead is mindless zombies driven by only their need to feed upon human flesh. They are infected with a disease that disables the cognitive portion of their brains and leaves them as slobbering predatory zombies seeking to satisfy their vile needs. They are referred to as “walkers” or “biters” as they aimlessly roam the countryside seeking human flesh. Everyone bitten or killed by a zombie is infected and turned into a zombie. The only way to stop them is by destroying their brain. The relentless violence and gore is not for the squeamish, but is probably a realistic portrayal of the brutishness and harsh conditions that will overwhelm this country once the electrical grid goes down, fuel becomes scarce and the global supply chain fails. Our just in time society is about one week from chaos, lawlessness, starvation and death on a grand scale.
Phil Robertson’s Victory Over the Secular Theocracy
Editorial Note: This is the second installment in a two-part series on Duck Dynasty and what it reveals regarding America’s “secular theocracy,” from the inimitable David Theroux, President and CEO of the Independent Institute. If you missed it, read the first part here.
Duck Dynasty and the Secular Theocracy, Part II
By David J. Theroux
Phil Robertson himself is certainly no lightweight. The Los Angeles Times has called him“a man of legendary individuality, who once passed up an opportunity to sign with the NFL because it might interfere with his hunting.” One of seven children raised in a log cabin in northern Louisiana with no electricity, bathtub, or toilet, Robertson grew up in a poor family living off garden fruits and vegetables; deer, squirrels, fish, and other animals that they hunted and fished; and the pigs, chickens, and cattle that they raised. Nevertheless, in high school he became All-State in football, baseball, and track and received a football scholarship to Louisiana Tech University. At Tech, later football legend Terry Bradshaw was at the time benched as second-string to Robertson, who was star quarterback. And although Robertson chose to quit football in college for the freedom to hunt during duck season, he went on to receive a master’s degree in education, taught school, and became a commercial fisherman. In 1972, the young enterprising Robertson patented his first duck call and created the Duck Commander Company, which has been leveraged into today’s vast fortune and cultural phenomenon that includes Duck Dynasty. His autobiography Happy, Happy, Happy became a number one New York Times bestseller, and his new book for 2014, Phil-osophy, will share his philosophy of life, as he outlined in an interview before the release of his autobiography:
My message is to get human beings to love God, love their neighbor and for the life of me I just don’t see the downside of human beings not being so mean to one another and actually care for one another and not steal from one another and not murder each other for their tennis shoes. That’s the message I have. . . . America and the world, we have a love problem. I’m trying to get people aware of that. A loving person is not going to pick up a spear or a knife because when the Ten Commandments were written it was before guns, and God was saying, “Look, quit murdering each other.” Now I’m just trying to say, “Folks, let’s try to love one another no matter what the color of their skin.”
Indeed, Robertson and the family have repeatedly written, spoken, and preached against racism, and Phil’s adopted grandson Will is biracial.
While in the air force, I was stationed in northern Louisiana and took courses at Tech at the same time Robertson was there. Although a “damn Yankee,” I not only immersed myself in southern living, including good manners, faith-based communities, food, hunting and fishing, family, and friends, but ended up marrying as my first wife a young woman from Shreveport. I learned firsthand to understand and appreciate many core values that northern bigotry had blinded me to. As Magery’s GQ article notes, “The ecology here has been so perfectly manipulated that it feels as if two giant hands reached down from the sky and molded the land itself, an effect that I’m sure would please Phil. . . . [I]t’s hard not to gaze upon his cultivations and wonder if you’ve gotten life all wrong. This is life as summer camp. It’s gorgeous, in a way that alters you on an elemental level. I feel it when I breathe the air. I feel it when I survey the enormity of the space around me.”
(CNNMoney) — The family-owned business at the center of the hit TV show “Duck Dynasty” has launched its own line of guns.
The gunmaker Mossberg has teamed with Duck Commander, the company owned by “Duck Dynasty’s” Robertson clan, to release nine different shotguns, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol.
Mossberg has begun shipping some of the shotguns to distributors, according to spokeswoman Linda Powell. She declined to name specific retailers that will carry them. (via Weasel Zippers)
The brouhaha over Phil Robertson's comments were nothing more than a coverup for a sneak attack against his beliefs. This is a common tactic these days, with the Belief Vigilantes screaming bloody murder when they hear or read words that don't expresstheir beliefs. This week's fable reveals the truth behind their actions. Enjoy.
BEWARE OF the Belief Vigilantes!
(It never was about the Bearded One)
Once upon a time, in a country of good and decent people, there lived a group of uber-sensitive, thin-skinned citizens who believed they were Constitutionally entitled to live without ever hearing anything that offended them.
They created a gi-normous list of blacklisted words. (Whoopsie! "Blacklisted" became the first offensive words to be b****listed because it implied a racist belief). The thin-skinned ones also created a rather short list of acceptable, non-offensive words. They became the "Word Gestapos," and roamed the land to ensure that seldom was heard a discouraging . . . or offensive word.
Then someone pointed out that words were not the problem. In fact, they had never, ever been the problem. Words were nothing more than proof positive of beliefs held by the person speaking the words.
Therefore, in order to eliminate offensive words, it would be necessary to change the offensive beliefs that had caused them to be spoken.
And so, the thin-skinned and much-too-sensitive folks re-branded themselves as The "Belief Vigilantes," and launched a national campaign to guarantee correct and non-offensive beliefs. They enlisted Hollywood celebrities, film industry moguls, and left-stream media and lobbied for mandatory "belief correction" classes and rehab programs (covered by government-approved health insurance) for everyone over the age of 6.
Next, the Belief Vigilantes launched a massive PR campaign focused on correct beliefs regarding racism, sexism, feminism, same-sex marriage, birth and climate control, Judeo/Christian beliefs, the obsolete Constitution, home schooling, red or white wine, etc., etc., etc.
But, drats and darn (the only approved words to describe disappointment), citizens continued to live their lives, using the b***klisted words, unaware of and unaffected by the Vigilantes' correct-belief campaign.
In became obvious that in order to capture national attention to their cause, the Belief Vigilantes needed a scapegoat.
Shazam! Along came a magazine interview with the perfect candidate: a bearded, self-made millionaire, reality TV star, and straight-talking founder from the Kingdom of Duck When a reporter had asked for an opinion, the Bearded One responded by expressing his beliefs regarding sexual preference and various body parts.
Whoopie Ki Yea! The Belief Vigilantes sprang into action, screaming and yelling about how his Neanderthal comments had offended them. The brouhaha became a breaking-and-non-stop story across the country. Millions of citizens, for the first time, began discussions about how, when, where, and "IF" it was appropriate to express deeply held beliefs that might differ from deeply held beliefs of others.
The Belief Vigilantes jumped up and down in celebration and clicked together the heels of their all-natural, handmade hemp sandals. "At last, citizens are beginning to understand the importance of correct beliefs (which we determine) and correct speech (which we also determine)."
I've never watched Duck Dynasty, reality TV shows have never appealed to me. However, I have been following recent statements by members of the Duck Dynasty family, especially the senior member Phil Robertson. Every statement he makes is based on his faith, his understanding of the Bible and Christian beliefs.
Phil Robertson was not a child when he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He knew what he was doing just as he knew what he was doing when he answered a question he was asked in a recent profile in GQ. He did not bring up the subject himself, he was asked what he finds sinful.
“It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man’s anus," Robertson says in the January issue of the men's magazine. "That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.” [snip]
"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there," he says. "Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
He goes on to paraphrase Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.” (Hollywood Reporter)
Various LGBTQ groups came had hissy fits and released statements. Some were just silly.
GLAAD on Wednesday condemned his remarks as "some of the vilest and most extreme statements uttered against LGBT people in a mainstream publication" and said "his quote was littered with outdated stereotypes and blatant misinformation."
"Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe," GLAAD spokesperson WilsonCruz said.
Wrong. So very wrong. True Christians believe exactly the same as Phil Robertson. And that is exactly why so many people watch Duck Dynasty.
So A&E wanted a reality show that would make them tons of money. They got one with Duck Dynasty -- 9 million-plus viewers.
They suddenly don't want it to be too real...
I'm guessing Phil Robertson has plenty of money and it won't bother him one bit to be on indefinite hiatus.
Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai who was shot in the head and the neck by a member of the Taliban as she rode home from school, was considered and rejected for a Nobel prize. She is interviewed by Jon Stewart of The Daily Show (I know, think of the show what you will, the interview is worth watching):
Watch Miley twerk, twitch and protrude her tongue at weird angles.
Examine her public display of compulsive sexual fantasy. We have a
diagnosis. Axis II: Exhibitionism with a touch of Frotteurism
are a celebrity attending the MTV Video Music Awards. What a great
night for media exposure and self-adulatory prancing. It is time to fawn
for the photojournalists and display the latest Haute couture. So let
there be music and let there be dance! Let there be crude obscenity and
slutty behaviour! It is a time to applaud for your co-religionists;
please applaud vigorously until the palms of your hands tingle with
excitement. And then onward to the party circuit to thrust out the chest
one more time with carefully positioned feet for this latest Cinderella
moment. For there is nothing more invigorating than receiving an award
from an event specifically tailored to, well, give out awards.
the peasants outside the Hollywood moat, it is time to crack open the
DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and figure
out what the heck is happening on the stage. I believe a look at Axis II
disorders will be a good place to start. To inspire a love for
medicine, we will take a look at one performer who has created quite a
stir. Naturally, the gaze is cast toward the performance of a young lady
with an unusual name: Miley Cyrus.
