Trouble is Brewing in America

Jim Carrey is an actor with a net worth of about $150 million.  He made his fortune by playing a fool in a host of movies and on television.  Little did we know that he is one.

According to Ben Shapiro,

Over the weekend, once-superstar comedian Jim Carrey announced he’d be releasing a new song, titled “Cold Dead Hand.” He also announced the gist of the song via Twitter: “‘Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.” Just in case you didn’t catch his point – that gunowners are morally deficient human beings – he stated in early February, anyone “who would run out to buy an assault rifle after the Newtown massacre has very little left in their body or soul worth protecting.”

So, what was Carrey’s new musical masterpiece? It was a rip on dead former movie star and NRA president Charlton Heston. Carrey played Heston as a moron, a crazy person. Then, posting as a character on Hee Haw, Carrey sang, “His immortal soul may lay forever in the sand, the angels wouldn’t take him up to heaven as he planned, cuz they couldn’t pry his gun from his cold, dead hand.” He then proceeded to make the oft-cited liberal idiot claim that gunowners want to own firearms because they have inferiority complexes about their penis sizes: “You’re a big big man with a little bitty gland, so you need something bigger with a hairpin trigger.”

But that wasn’t the end of the video. The chorus was straight from the minds of Barack Obama and Piers Morgan: “It takes a cold dead hand to decide to pull the trigger. It takes a cold dead heart and as near as I can figure, with your cold dead aim, you’re trying to prove your dick is bigger, but we know that your chariot may not be swinging low.”

And more: “Imagine if the Lord were here and he knew what you’d be thinking, would his sacred heart be sinking into the canyon of despair. And on the ones who sell the guns, he’d sic the vultures and coyotes, only the devil’s true devotees could profiteer from pain and fear.” Carrey then portrayed Heston trying to work a rifle in a simulation of masturbation.

Carrey’s song is as idiotic as the characters he plays as was his tweet, but that’s not my main point.  My mother-in-law told me that my late father-in-law refused to watch another Ingrid Bergman movie after he found out that she became pregnant out of wedlock.  That was about 60 years ago, and my father-in-law wasn’t alone.  Once upon a time in America, morals mattered.  If celebrities and high-profile politicians wanted to protect their careers, they did their best to hide their indiscretions.  Today, they flaunt them, and the masses love it.

Consider Bill Clinton, for example.  He lied under oath and encouraged a White House intern to perform oral sex on him in the Oval Office.  He did many other things as president that would have made him a national disgrace  and ended his political career a few decades ago, but the only thing that kept him from winning a third term as president was the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution.

Today, Clinton is the darling of the left, and he has made a fortune giving speeches around the world to enraptured audiences.  His wife, Hillary, is also well known for her adroit truth stretching, but she became a U.S. senator and secretary of state.  The only reason that she didn’t become president in 2008 is that a person with African-American blood was her opponent.  Hillary had the audacity to call Barack Obama a liar during that campaign.  Of course, she was right as anyone who follows the president knows, but that’s a great example of the pot calling the kettle black.

The problem that I’m writing about isn’t limited to the political left, either.  For instance, Donald Trump is as much celebrity as businessman.  He has made billions of dollars in real estate and entertainment, and Mitt Romney was thrilled to accept his endorsement for president in 2012. posted a piece on Trump titled “10 Stories About Donald Trump You Won’t Believe Are True”.  It’s worth examining because if even half of what they say about Trump is true, Romney should have avoided him like the plague.

Wayne Barrett at The Daily Beast suggests that one of the reasons Trump decided not to run for president himself in 2012 was his connections with organized crime:

In the days before Trump dropped out, he could certainly not have been too happy to hear from me again. We met in the late ’70s for hours of taped interviews, and The Village Voice stories I wrote then resulted in a federal grand jury probe of his early deals, though, in the end, no indictment. When I published the first biography of the Donald in 1992, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, which oversees casino licensing in Atlantic City, put Trump under oath and issued a 34-page report, confirming some of the ties to organized crime I described in the book and stating that they could not verify others. I was later visited repeatedly by gaming officials from Missouri when Trump applied for a riverboat casino license there; he wound up withdrawing the application.

While I was reporting that book in 1990, I was muscled out of Trump Castle and handcuffed overnight to a wall at the Atlantic City jail. I haven’t done much reporting about him since the book, but when his numbers shot to the top in recent presidential polls, I took another look and asked his office for an interview. His response was a letter threatening a libel suit.

Unfortunately, in 21st century America, it looks as though wealth and celebrity trump morals every day of the week, no pun intended.  I’m not a pessimist, but when I look at what America has become, I wonder if we have the political will to right the ship of state before it sinks.  If the U.S. does eventually go the way of Greece and Cyprus and Italy and Spain and Portugal, for example, we can expect violence in the streets, and that brings me back to Jim Carrey.

Ordinary American citizens may need guns and ammunition to defend themselves and their families in the not-so-distant future.  That’s why they are buying AR 15s and other scary looking weapons in record numbers.  Like me, they can see the writing on the wall, and they are preparing for what might happen.

Trump, the Clintons, and Carrey have enough money to hightail it to a luxurious safe haven if things explode.  President Obama and Vice President Biden have Secret Service guards day and night.  Most Americans will have to live through the nightmare, and they don’t want to do it without protection.  Can you blame them?  Hardly.  It’s just good sense.

4--Scripture of the Day

Daniel 4: 4-9

“I, Nebuchadnezzar, was at ease in my house and flourishing in my palace. I saw a dream and it made me fearful; and these fantasies as I lay on my bed and the visions in my mind kept alarming me. So I gave orders to bring into my presence all the wise men of Babylon, that they might make known to me the interpretation of the dream. Then the magicians, the conjurers, the Chaldeans and the diviners came in and I related the dream to them, but they could not make its interpretation known to me. But finally Daniel came in before me, whose name is Belteshazzar according to the name of my god, and in whom is a spirit of the holy gods; and I related the dream to him, saying, ‘O Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, since I know that a spirit of the holy gods is in you and no mystery baffles you, tell me the visions of my dream which I have seen, along with its interpretation.’”

  • “Behold, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely; and this is His name by which He will be called, ‘Yahweh our righteousness.’” (Jeremiah 23: 5-6)
  • Yeshua said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” (John 8: 58)

Smadar Bat Adam: Turkey and Israel: interests over grudges— Beneath the outward hostility, positive energy has been flowing between Israel and Turkey.

Aharon Lapidot: A Turkish mandate in Syria— Turkey is perhaps the only foreign entity with any sort of legitimacy to intervene in Syria.

Ruthie Blum: Dangerous liaisons— Obama could be the president under whose watch the word “superpower” no longer applies.

Dan Margalit: Silence erodes US standing— The U.S. would benefit by asking why those in Syria allow themselves to openly flout it.

J.R. Dunn: Freaking the Straights on Gay Marriage—An attempt by the smallest of tails to wag the largest of dogs. The gay movement demands not tolerance, not the friction-filled tumult of American life that everyone else is subject to, but full acceptance of themselves and their lifestyle.

Andrew Ferguson: The ‘Science’ of Same-Sex Marriage—Oral arguments on gay marriage take place before the Supreme Court the last week of March, and the pile of amicus briefs filed by interested parties long ago passed the point of redundancy. We prefer briefs filed by disinterested parties, such as the one put before the Court earlier in the month by Leon Kass of the University of Chicago and Harvey Mansfield of Harvard University. The Kass-Mansfield brief is silent on the larger question of gay marriage as social policy. The professors instead confine themselves to a shared area of expertise: the relation between social science and cultural and political life, which they have pondered and written about for many years.

Roger L. Simon: On Marriage — Again—The Republican Party seems riven these days over the issue of same-sex marriage. The debate is everywhere. But they are all missing the forest for the proverbial trees. America’s problem isn’t gay marriage; it’s marriage.

Andrew Harrod: A Muslim ‘Reformer’s’ Idea of Free Speech—Islamic activists reveal their true contempt for the First Amendment.

Raymond Ibrahim: The Threat of Islamic Betrayal –Recent incidents in Turkey — certainly the most “moderate” of Islamic states — underlines the untrustworthy nature of Islamic supremacist ideology.

Bryan Preston: Gutenberg’s Rifle: The Downloadable Firearm Is Almost Real—Defense Distributed is the group that in the past year has gone from not even existing to being on the verge of changing everything. Now, the group is about to create the world’s first fully functional, fully printed gun. The wikiweapon will be real.

Matthew Vadum: Obama Withdraws Radical Judicial Activist Nominee—A serious setback for the Left’s renewed gun control crusade.

Ben Shapiro: Jim Carrey: Gun Owners Don’t Deserve to Live—The hypocrisy of the Hollywood elite.

Bridget Johnson: What Intel Did the White House Miss By Whisking Abu Ghaith Into Federal Court?—To the White House, the capture earlier this month of Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law is another feather in the cap of the administration’s self-touted terrorism fighting chops. To congressional Republicans, it threatens to go down in history as a giant missed opportunity at best and deadly national security flub at worst — thanks to the “apparent rush” to bring him to trial in a New York federal court.

Joseph Klein: The Obama Administration’s Disgraceful Muslim Brotherhood Policy—Bloggers arrested, sexual assaults skyrocketing, while the U.S. sends more support to the Islamist regime.

Raymond Ibrahim: Islam’s Outrageous Obscenities—Warning: vulgar language ahead.

Walter E. Williams: Are We Equal?—Are women equal to men? Are Jews equal to gentiles? Are blacks equal to Italians, Irish, Polish and other white people? The answer is probably a big fat no, and the pretense or assumption that we are equal — or should be equal — is foolhardy and creates mischief. Let’s look at it.

Myra Adams: ‘Jesus Stomping’ Professor/ FAU Story Continues With Non-Apology, Then Apology and Now Charges Filed Against Student Who Complained— Just in time for Holy Week, this “Stomp Jesus” story has developed some intriguing twists and turns. To recap, here is a quick synopsis from last week’s Tatler post titled “‘Jesus Stomping’ FAU Professor is Democrat Party Vice-Chairman in Palm Beach County, FL”

Michelle Malkin: Reminder: How Mexico Treats “Undesirable” Foreigners—American politicians in both parties are stampeding all over themselves to pander to Mexico and adopt mass illegal alien amnesty schemes. But while the Mexican government lobbies for more “humane” treatment of illegal border crossers from their country into ours, Mexico remains notoriously restrictionist toward “undesirable” foreigners who break their laws or threaten their security.



14--Blessings from Revelation

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
