VOIGHT: My concerns for America
Obama sowing socialist seeds in young people

Monday, July 28, 2008

Actor Jon Voight. Associated Press.

OP-ED

We, as parents, are well aware of the importance of our teachers who teach and program our children. We also know how important it is for our children to play with good-thinking children growing up.

Sen. Barack Obama has grown up with the teaching of very angry, militant white and black people: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, William Ayers and Rev. Michael Pfleger. We cannot say we are not affected by teachers who are militant and angry. We know too well that we become like them, and Mr. Obama will run this country in their mindset.

The Democratic Party, in its quest for power, has managed a propaganda campaign with subliminal messages, creating a God-like figure in a man who falls short in every way. It seems to me that if Mr. Obama wins the presidential election, then Messrs. Farrakhan, Wright, Ayers and Pfleger will gain power for their need to demoralize this country and help create a socialist America.

The Democrats have targeted young people, knowing how easy it is to bring forth whatever is needed to program their minds. I know this process well. I was caught up in the hysteria during the Vietnam era, which was brought about through Marxist propaganda underlying the so-called peace movement. The radicals of that era were successful in giving the communists power to bring forth the killing fields and slaughter 2.5 million people in Cambodia and South Vietnam. Did they stop the war, or did they bring the war to those innocent people? In the end, they turned their backs on all the horror and suffering they helped create and walked away.

Those same leaders who were in the streets in the '60s are very powerful today in their work to bring down the Iraq war and to attack our president, and they have found their way into our schools. William Ayers is a good example of that.

Thank God, today, we have a strong generation of young soldiers who know exactly who they are and what they must do to protect our freedom and our democracy. And we have the leadership of Gen. David Petraeus, who has brought hope and stability to Iraq and prevented the terrorists from establishing a base in that country. Our soldiers are lifting us to an example of patriotism at a time when we've almost forgotten who we are and what is at stake.

If Mr. Obama had his way, he would have pulled our troops from Iraq years ago and initiated an unprecedented bloodbath, turning over that country to the barbarianism of our enemies. With what he has openly stated about his plans for our military, and his lack of understanding about the true nature of our enemies, there's not a cell in my body that can accept the idea that Mr. Obama can keep us safe from the terrorists around the world, and from Iran, which is making great strides toward getting the atomic bomb. And while a misleading portrait of Mr. Obama is being perpetrated by a media controlled by the Democrats, the Obama camp has sent out people to attack the greatness of Sen. John McCain, whose suffering and courage in a Hanoi prison camp is an American legend.

Gen. Wesley Clark, who himself has shame upon him, having been relieved of his command, has done their bidding and become a lying fool in his need to demean a fellow soldier and a true hero.

This is a perilous time, and more than ever, the world needs a united and strong America. If, God forbid, we live to see Mr. Obama president, we will live through a socialist era that America has not seen before, and our country will be weakened in every way.

Well, if Obama is elected, this country will surely deserve what he inflicts upon it.

Why doesn't Voight run for President? If he truly thinks the way his article was written, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat...

Uh, well, maybe because he's nuttier than squirrel poop.

He's Angelina Jolie's father and starred in Midnight Cowboy....and that's just the beginning of his resume.

A Nazi Connection In Harry Potter



David wrote: Our local Jewish Community Center is co-sponsoring a Harry Potter party with our local Borders bookstore. The flyer for this party states that children will receive a free thunderbolt tattoo [on their foreheads].

The Jewish Talmud (our Old Testament) forbids the practice of witchcraft. Yet our local Jewish community is condoning the practice of witchcraft by inviting children to dress up as Harry Potter and pretend they are wizards. This is surely an abomination God's eyes. (Interestingly, throughout the Old Testament, God commanded the Israelites over and over again not to adopt the occult, pagan practices of their neighbors, but they refused to obey His prohibitions.)

Also, the same evening I picked up this Jewish Community Center flyer at Borders, I came across a Time-Life book about Hitler's Nazi Germany. It had a number of shocking photos of Hitler's Youth Corps. What jumped out at me, were the number of photos depicting the thunderbolt symbol - mainly on Youth Corps flags but also on some ritual Youth Corps shields.

The thunderbolt symbol was also used on the uniforms of the Nazi SS soldiers, who among other things rounded up the Jewish people and carried out their slaughter. More specifically, the SS letters on their uniforms were in the shape of double thunderbolts - the same double SS symbol used by neo-Nazis today (see the next paragraph).

The following description of the thunderbolt symbol was found at the Christian countercult site:

http://www.crossroad.to/text/symbols.html

THUNDERBOLT: In ancient mythologies from many cultures (Norse, Roman, Greek, Native American, etc.) the lighting bolt would be hurled by male sky gods to punish, water, or fertilize the earth or its creatures. Navaho myths linked it to the Thunderbird, the symbol of salvation and divine gifts. On many children's toys, it represents supernatural power. Double bolts, popular with contemporary skinheads, symbolize Nazi power.

Perhaps you can guess where this is leading... Hitler was heavily into the occult and paganism, and he shared these occult teachings with his followers including the youth. The thunderbolts on the Nazi youth and SS uniforms were occult symbols, just as the thunderbolt on Harry Potter's forehead is an occult symbol. And these Nazi occult practitioners were the ones who massacred millions of Jewish citizens in the Holocaust. Why would the Jewish community now publicize Harry Potter's thunderbolt symbol, which is not only occult but is also reminiscent of the Nazi SS slaughterers? It is absurd!

(Another item I read, stated that the occult thunderbolt tattoo on childrens' foreheads may be conditioning them to accept the mark of the beast someday soon as "something cool." It's a scary thought, but very possible I believe in these end times.)

On another note, the Time-Life book referred to above is entitled "The New Order" and is one of three volumes on Nazi Germany. I haven't seen the other two volumes yet, but this one does not even list the term "Holocaust" in its index. Could this perhaps an example of revisionist history, in which the Time-Life people are actually being antisemitic by not informing today's young readers of the Holocaust with all its horrors?

BTW, I am a born again Protestant, not Jewish, but I believe we are to love the people of Israel since they are God's chosen people. Let us, as born again Christians and "grafted-in Gentiles", pray for the peace of Israel ...

Another interesting tidbit: J.K. Rowling has stated that she intended for her Harry Potter books to be read by children approximately ages 10 and up. Yet the books, as we know, are wildly popularly among children as young as age 5 (and perhaps even younger). I believe that around age 8 most children reach the "age of accountability" - the age when a child comes to know right from wrong and can understand the gospel message and become born again by accepting Christ as his or her Savior. It is truly an abomination, that adults are potentially drawing so many young children into witchcraft and Satanism before they even can tell right from wrong. God will hold millions of parents accountable for buying these books - and God will hold J.K. Rowling accountable for writing them.


God bless you all - Dave

P.S. Didn't Voight star with "Hanoi Jane" in "Coming Home" or something like that?

Hey Dave... it's a fantasy BOOK! Get it? it's a story NOT real life.... Not a manual to bring an 8 year old (born again? LMAO!) child to practice witchcraft! Potter into satanism, devil worship? Naw... just not in the books. Truly doubtful about your "abomination" routine... I'll bet in twenty years these books will be long forgotten as much as Sinclair Lewis and Jules Verne are today. Rowling is no Homer & Harry Potter is no Ulysses! Never saw "Coming Home"? One damn hot Mustang in that movie almost as good as McQueen's "Bullitt" version....

Jon Voight Owed Jolie's Mom Thousands In Child SupportApril 17, 2007 - Jon Voight, Brad Pitt, James Haven and Angelina Jolie
Jon Voight Photos (135) We've all heard the cheating rumors about Angelina Jolie's dad, but now it seems like the actor may have also caused his ex-wife financial strife.

Angelina Jolie's father, Jon Voight, owed her mother $180,000 in child support when she died.

The "Tomb Raider" actress' mother Marcheline Bertrand died of ovarian cancer in January and details of her will - revealing the outstanding spousal support payments - were revealed after it was filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on April 10.

A source close to Voight said: "Jon paid spousal support to Marcheline years ago and was very generous to her. Where that dollar amount came from I have no idea."

The 56-year-old left $100,000 to her "beloved grandson" Maddox and was updated with a note to "add Zahara and the new little precious one (Shiloh)" leaving them $100,000 each.

Marcheline named Angelina and her older brother James Haven as co-executors of her will and left most of her $2 million estate to them.

Marcheline met Voight shortly after his Oscar nomination for 1969's "Midnight Cowboy." They married in 1971, but Marcheline filed for divorce seven years later. They had two children - Angelina and James.

Angelina has four children - adopted five-year-old Cambodian son Maddox, adopted two-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara, 11-month-old Shiloh, her daughter with boyfriend Brad Pitt, and three-year-old Vietnamese boy Pax Thien, who she adopted in March.

Jon Voight's Dysfunctional Lifestyle Exposed26 November 2002 | From wenn.com |
Angelina Jolie's estranged dad Jon Voight was a neglectful father, a womanizer and linked to a cult, according to the mother of the actress's childhood pal. Susan Margaret, whose daughter was a close childhood friend of Tomb Raider star Jolie, says Voight's alleged ways could be the reason he and his stunning offspring are no longer on speaking terms. Susan says, "I watched Angelina grow up. My daughter was one of her closest friends. My daughter would often spend weekends at Angelina's home - so I saw it all. And that fact is Jon Voight was a terrible father to her back then. He cheated on her mother, Marcheline Bertrand. And through a woman he was seeing, Jon Voight was linked to a cult. Marcheline flipped when Jon began wearing a symbol of the cult around his neck. The infidelities she dealt with, but I think the cult pushed her over the top. Marcheline was broken-hearted about her marriage. And she told me Jon had emotionally abused her. She said that Jon had a thing for a Hollywood starlet. Once the starlet was in their home when pregnant Marcheline said she started to have a miscarriage. Marcheline told me, 'I came downstairs and I saw them kissing. So I just went back upstairs and cried, and then I called the ambulance.'" Susan says Marcheline never publicly revealed the truth about Voight because she was dependent on him for financial support. But when Voight recently made a teary TV plea for Jolie to seek help for "serious mental problems," Susan opted to speak out. She adds, "It makes me angry to hear Jon Voight saying on TV that Angelina has mental problems. Angelina is a healthy, wonderful person. She had a difficult time growing up with what was going on. She has a lot of hostility toward her dad. Knowing that makes you understand a little about some of the things Angelina has done."

J.K. Rowling fairy tales to be sold for charity
Thursday, July 31, 2008 9:41 AM EDT
The Associated Press
By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press Writer


LONDON (AP) — News alert for Harry Potter fans: A book of wizard fairy tales written and illustrated by J.K. Rowling is to be published for charity.

A British charity said Thursday it hopes to raise 4 million pounds ($8 million) through sales of "The Tales of Beedle the Bard." Rowling co-founded The Children's High Level Group charity, which supports institutionalized children. She has signed over her royalties.

The book is a collection of five wizarding tales referred to in Rowling's Potter saga. It was initially produced in an edition of seven handwritten copies. Six were given away by Rowling as gifts, and one was bought by retailer Amazon at an auction in December for almost 2 million pounds ($4 million).

Rowling said the new edition would include her illustrations and introduction, the stories themselves and commentaries ostensibly by Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, "which appear by generous permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters' Archive."

The book will be published Dec. 4 by Bloomsbury in Britain and Scholastic in the United States. Amazon also plans a leather-bound collectors' edition priced at 50 pounds ($100).

Rowling, whose Harry Potter books have sold more than 400 million copies and been translated into 64 languages, wrote the Beedle tales after finishing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and final work in the series last year.

She has described "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" as a distillation of the themes found in the Harry Potter books, calling it her goodbye to a world she lived in for 17 years.

I'm not Dave. I'm just posting the letter beside that of Voight for comparison.
Incidentally, Voight campaigned for that champion defender of the 2nd Amend., Rudy Guilliani, in the Florida primary. Do a google search under Jon Voight and Guilliani. They even have YouTube footage. :rolleyes:
