It’s an utter shame that one Hollywood celebrity giving thanks to the United States military is so rare as to be fairly newsworthy, but this is where we are right now, given the communist hellhole that is Hollywood. But when it does happen, even despite the current situation in Hellywood, credit must be given where it’s due.
With the Oscars having happened last Sunday night, actress Renee Zellweger did something controversial: avoid attacking Trump, the country, white people or political dissenters. Matter of fact, she did three things in particular that are rare for the Hollywood crowd: thank the military, thank police (as well as firefighters and other first responders, but there is good reason I’m focusing on police) and take notice of the American dream that people, even immigrants (who are coming here legally and do not intend on being a financial burden for American taxpayers), strive to accomplish.
Renee Zellweger won an Oscar on Sunday for Best Actress for her role in “Judy”, a movie about acting icon Judy Garland, who is most famous for her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. This is what she said in her acceptance speech:
“Thank you to the Academy. Thank you for inviting me here alongside one of the most special collaborations and meaningful experiences of my life. My immigrant folks, who came here with nothing but each other and a belief in the American dream, how about this? Thank you to you. And I have to say that this past year of conversations of celebrating Judy Garland across generations and across cultures has been a really cool reminder that our heroes unite us – the best among us who inspire us to find the best in ourselves. They unite us.”
“When we look to our heroes, we agree. And that matters. Neil Armstrong, Sally Ride (an American astronaut), Dolores Huerta (a labor leader and civil rights activist), Venus, and Serena, and Selena (not sure who she is referring to here), Bob Dylan, Fred Rogers, Harriet Tubman, we agree on our teachers. And we agree on our courageous men and women in uniform who serve. And we agree on our first responders and firefighters. When we celebrate our heroes, we’re reminded of who we are as one people, united.”
She also went on to talk more about Judy Garland and the fact she was snubbed from getting the same award Renee had just won and mention that Garland was also a hero to her, after which she ended her speech.
But the speech, while fairly brief, is not bad at all, especially considering the communist garbage the other award winners gave (with one Oscar winner literally quoting the Communist Manifesto in her speech).
Now, this isn’t the first time a Hollywood celebrity has chosen to thank our servicemembers for their sacrifice or overall didn’t give a negative message about America in recent time. Chris Pratt has also done this, thanking servicemen and women, and Gary Oldman thanked the opportunity this country has given him to succeed at the Academy Awards almost two years ago. But given the utter vitriol one sees come from Hellywood on pretty much a daily basis and given just about each movie that has political subtext basically brought to the forefront, it is nice to hear at least one person in one of these award shows give the virtue-signaling a rest.
It is appreciated that some people actually do still seek the American dream without crapping all over the concept and the system that allows for people to achieve it. It is appreciated that someone would thank first responders (though she didn’t outright specify cops) due to the fact that many on the Left view police with utter disdain, believing them to all be racists and people who kill black and brown people for fun or for sport. It is appreciated that someone would thank the servicemen and women who choose to lay their lives on the line so that we can enjoy our freedoms and our safety from foreign adversaries due to how the Left often believes this country to be an imperial menace to the world, itching to go out and invade any small country and strip it of its resources, leaving behind dead bodies and people driven to poverty.
I doubt I am exaggerating in the way the Left, particularly those in Hollywood, view this country, the economic and political system in place, and the police and military members. The values you and I hold mean absolutely nothing to many of these people at best and are viewed as outright demonic at worst (which is richly ironic, considering their demonic pagan practice of sacrificing children for a golden idol). I don’t think Renee has the same values altogether that you and I do, as much of the speech still contained semblances of secularism (hero-worship was practically all over it and worshipping fellow human beings is, of course, idolatrous), but the fact that she at least gave thanks to those who sacrifice their lives for our freedom is worthy of recognition and praise.
The biggest headlines and stories won’t be about her speech. They will be about the “ultra-woke” messages given in the speeches of other Oscar winners. They will be about the same idiotic and erroneous environmental and communist messages that help no one and stand to heavily harm more people than help (as evidenced by literal history that these people refuse to learn from).
But Renee taking the time of her speech to thank servicemembers is, like I said, worthy of praise and recognition. She won’t make headlines in places like Vox or Time, etc., but this gesture is appreciated, even if it goes largely unrecognized by people who often hold contempt for those who serve in our military.

As I was reading financial and technology news I came across this article from Fox Business News. I have to admit that I felt a little sick to my stomach when I read this report of Hollywood bringing James Dean back to life….to give him a role and a career! Can you believe it?
Here’s what Fox Business recently reported:
“The men bringing James Dean back to life for a forthcoming film are aiming not just to give his digital likeness a role, but a whole new career.
Dean’s planned appearance in the Vietnam War movie ‘Finding Jack,’ and the possibility of future parts, comes as digital de-aging and duplication of real actors has tipped from cinematic trick into common practice. And it's giving new life to old arguments about the immortality and dignity of the dead.
‘Our intentions are to create the virtual being of James Dean. That's not only for one movie, but going to be used for many movies and also gaming and virtual reality,’ said Travis Cloyd, CEO of Worldwide XR, who is leading the design on the Dean project. ‘Our focus is on building the ultimate James Dean so he can live across any medium.’”
If you’re feeling uneasy about what these people are trying to do, it’s because God put in you His morality so that you can discern right from wrong.
You see, these people are justifying their actions by what some of their predecessors in other movies did:
“’This is disruptive technology,’ Cloyd said. ‘Some people hear it for the first time and they get shaken by it. But this is where the market is going.’
The revival of the dead, often done clumsily, has been happening for much of Hollywood's existence.
Footage of Bela Lugosi, combined with a double holding a cape over his face, was used in 1959’s ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space,’ released after the horror star's death. Bruce Lee’s film ‘Game of Death,’ left unfinished before his 1973 death, was completed using doubles and voice overdubs and released five years later. ‘The Fast and the Furious’ star Paul Walker died in 2013 before shooting was done on ‘Furious 7.’ His two younger brothers and others acted as stand-ins so his scenes could be finished.
Even Lennon, and many other dead historical figures, were digitally revived in 1994 in ‘Forrest Gump.’
But the technology of recreation and resurrection has taken a major leap forward in quality and prestige, with the extensive de-aging and re-aging used in Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’; a young Will Smith digitally returning to play opposite the current version in last summer's ‘Gemini Man’; and Carrie Fisher, whose younger self briefly returned digitally in 2016's ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ and appeared again after her death, in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.’
Let me decode this for you. What they mean to say is they’re going to push for this “new normal” in technology until you accept it as normal as if normal meant “right”.
So what if Bela Lugosi was brought to “life” by a double in 1959 to finish a project? So what if Bruce Lee’s “Game of Death” film was completed by doubles after his death? So what if Lennon appeared next to Forrest Gump? In the first two cases, doubles were used for one particular purpose: to finish a film, and the practice stopped there. Nobody else brought Bela Lugosi or Bruce Lee back to life to give them careers. Even Lennon appearing with Forrest Gump (or any other doctored video of actual people, such as JFK, for that matter) is not really a moral problem when it’s done this way.
Doctoring a video to place yourself in the swearing in of, say, JFK or Donald Trump as President, can be artistic, but not morally wrong. Even making yourself look younger or older in a photo or video can be artistic but not morally wrong (unless you’re using it to fool people into thinking you’re younger or older than you are for a larger purpose, such as fraud). The key is: what’s your motive? Vanity? Just trying to look better? Or fraud where you’re actually trying to steal something from someone?
But let’s face it, bringing a dead man to life for PROFIT is EVIL. They’re doing this for MONEY. Not to mention the idea that they’re going to CREATE a digital image of James Dean, not use old footage as was the case with John Lennon in Forrest Gump, is morally wrong.
Morality cannot be based on what's normal at the moment! Slavery was normal, but it was wrong. Abortion is somewhat normal, but it’s still wrong. Transgenderism is also somewhat normal (or they’re trying to normalize it), and it’s still wrong. Having males compete against women in sports is being pushed as normal, but it’s still wrong. And bringing people back from the dead, pretending they’re alive and giving them a role in a movie is as wrong as talking to dead people, or the Ouija board game, which attempts to contact dead people and having them talk to you!
What I find fascinating is what Pablo Helman said:
“Pablo Helman, the visual effects supervisor behind the de-aging of Robert De Niro and others in ‘The Irishman,’ said he considers that moral dilemma in his work.
‘The main question that you need to ask yourself is why do it?’ Helman said. ‘You know, just because you can do it doesn't mean you should, you know? That would be one thing that I'm always questioning: Is it in service of the story?’”
Why you do it, is the question. “Is it in service of the story?” HA! So now morality is based upon a certain action being in service of the story? Slavery was definitely in service of the Southern economy. Was it right? So what if a few make hundreds of millions of dollars, in service of the story out of this?
The question of morality is not decided by the majority and it’s not decided by economics or arts – it’s decided by God Himself.
In Deuteronomy 18:10-12 we read: “anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD”.
By doing these things – creating digital beings of people who have died so that these images assume a role in a movie (not even acting as self!) is an abomination to the Lord. There’s a reason people have a negative reaction to these things, as Cloyd confessed. It’s occultism. It’s Satanism. They don't need to do any of this - they can just hire a real, living actor. So why do this unless you're working knowingly or unknowingly for Satan himself!
God has written His law in our souls. It’s wrong what Hollywood is doing. People know it. The authors of this evil know it. You know it and I know it. It’s simply wrong. And it’s always wrong to do wrong.
1 Chronicles 10:13-14:
“So Saul died for his breach of faith. He broke faith with the LORD in that he did not keep the command of the LORD and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance. He did not seek guidance from the LORD. Therefore the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse.“

We all know that the Left lives in a perpetual state of anger, outrage and offense, where they look for any and all reasons to be angry at something or someone and feel like some sort of tragic victim who is due some sort of justice. But recently, Leftists have been outraged at something particularly odd: the fact that an openly conservative Hollywood star shows that he is openly conservative.
You see, recently, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended the College Football National Championship game between LSU and Clemson University, where he received great cheers and standing ovations from the crowd, with the crowd also chanting “USA” upon seeing him.
However, that is not what the Left will choose to cover (can’t show that Trump is popular, because that would go against the narrative that the vast majority of this country hates and detests him). Also in attendance of this game was Hollywood star Vince Vaughn, who got the opportunity to have a conversation with the President of the United States and First Lady during the game and even shake the president's hand as shown above.
A camera recorded this occasion and sports “journalist” Timothy Burke tweeted out the video with the caption: “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it,” as though he was mourning the fact that a Hollywood celebrity who is not shy about his conservative beliefs was holding a civil conversation with Trump.
Of course, I do actually know why he and other Leftists were outraged. Hollywood is supposed to be THEIRS. At every awards show, in every movie, Leftist ideology must be not only shared but shoved down our throats and any contradicting ideology must be pushed down and obliterated. Hosts who make jokes at the expense of the woke celebrities must be lambasted (such as Ricky Gervais) and celebrities who dissent from the Leftist ideology in any way must be blacklisted and publicly shamed.
The “journalist” appeared to be mourning because he essentially was. Vince Vaughn is a beloved actor in Hollywood, having appeared or starred in many great comedies like Anchorman, Dodgeball, Wedding Crashers, and other movies. He is still working as an actor and producer in various films to this day, so his open conservatism hasn’t derailed his career like it has for other actors.
Vince Vaughn is still popular and beloved, so it apparently hurts the snowflake Left when they see him amicably and civilly speaking with the POTUS. You see, in their mind, even if you are a conservative, you should hate Trump. Even if you are a conservative, right-winger, you should still be on the side of the Left, at least when it comes to Trump, and given the opportunity, you should be seen yelling and screaming like a madman at Trump or cursing him out, or at least, actively avoiding him and/or trying to embarrass him. No one is allowed to like Trump, no one is allowed to have a dissenting opinion. Everyone is supposed to hold the same views as the Left, or they should be cancelled.
Of course, Burke got blasted for his inability to believe that someone, particularly someone like Vince Vaughn, would actually have the gall to be civil in the presence of Trump:
“You’ve successfully proven that Vince Vaughn is a Republican, that thing he has taken no effort to hide,” wrote Alex Griswold. He followed that up by saying: “DM me dude, I have a GIANT scoop about Jon Voight,” who is also another prominent conservative in Hollywood.
Marc Thiessen tweeted: “OMG the humanity! This is terrible! We must all hate Vince Vaughn! You would have done great under Stalin.”
Carpe Donktum, a known conservative meme-maker whose memes often get retweeted by conservatives and sometimes even by the President, tweeted: “Man, I just can’t believe how bold some of these Hollywood people are becoming, first Ricky, and now Vince. If this keeps up people might realize that they live in a free country, and it’s ok to have different opinions than the ones shouted at you on TV.”
If you remember, I recently wrote an article showing us just how few liberals there actually are in this country, with that number being just below 25%. In Hollywood, one would assume that at least 90% of the people there are liberal, so it can be rather rare to see a conservative Hollywood celebrity or star, but they do exist. And in the Left’s mind, that is horrible. As I said in the article about the number of liberals in the country, they are few in number so they have to be loud to pretend to be the mainstream opinion.
Virtually every Hollywood movie and every TV show produced today must bear a hyper-liberal message. A new Star Trek is being made? It should tackle Trump and Brexit (even though it’s literally set hundreds of years in the future, but I guess Trump is still going to be president in the 2360s and Britain will still be trying to leave the European Union) and point out how both of those things are not only bad, but are dangerous and violent for literally everyone. Trump is president and he continues winning electorally? Let’s make a movie about hunting and killing conservatives. More people tend to be okay with homosexuality as time goes on? Good, let’s overrepresent gay people as much as possible in films and tv, even though they are about 5% of the population, if that, and have “gay rights” organizations yell at us for not representing gay people enough anyway.
Movies that present a different ideology, or even just don’t shove the Leftist ideology down people’s throats, are labeled as “problematic”, “controversial” or “irresponsible”, such as the movie “1917”, which is about WWI but it doesn’t feature transgender military generals ordering a sufficiently marginalized, foreign, strong and independent woman of color to singlehandedly beat the Nazis (I know Nazis are from WWII, but the enemy would be treated as Nazis, as we generally are) all while flying the rainbow flag and denouncing white privilege and the United States and a president who wouldn’t be born for roughly another 30 years, so it’s labeled as “irresponsibly nationalistic”.
Any semblance of dissent must be culled, in the Left’s mind, and this has been the modus operandi for ages. The Chinese do it to this day. The Iranians do it. The Russians do it and did it often when they were the Soviet Union. In any dictatorship, where there is dissenting opinion, there are mysterious disappearances and killings. The American Left wishes they could be the dictators of the U.S., as dictators rule harshly in other countries. (Project Veritas recently released a video showing Bernie Sanders campaign staffers wishing to send Trump supporters to “reeducation camps” to “de-Nazify” us, so these people are no different from the commies in the USSR).
For Vince Vaugh to not only be conservative but also to be civil in the face of Trump, it is to be treated as a tragedy. Which is a little odd because, again, he is openly conservative. Back in 2013, he gave an interview where he said: “I think that… as you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And that you start to realize when you really go back and look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to sort of think and pursue what they have interest in. And that when you start drawing the lines, saying, as a society, we think this is inappropriate, we’re going to pass laws to protect them from themselves and/or take things away to protect themselves or move money from here to there, that you realize that you wake up with corruption and… you’ll wake up with a lot of problems that didn’t exist prior.”
It really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that Vince Vaughn is a conservative, but again, the tragedy, I suppose, is that he didn’t yell at Trump like a decent human being would… or something dumb like that.
Thankfully, considering so many people already know that Vaughn is a conservative, and considering he still gets work in Lefty Hollywood, to the dismay of this particular sports “journalist”, I doubt he will be cancelled over this. Someone might get angry with him and lambast him or bash him on the internet, but he will be fine. But this does, sadly, go to show just how valueless basic civility is nowadays when being seen holding a conversation with someone the Left hates is considered some sort of devastating tragedy and when the expectation by the Left is that the President would be verbally assaulted.
“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.”

The economy is doing fantastic and the President is enjoying great unemployment numbers, so much so that he even created a job opening for Iran’s Major General last week. Unfortunately, one should expect there to be one less job out there because whoever thought of making comedian Ricky Gervais the host of the 2020 Golden Globe awards has probably been fired at this point.
What am I talking about? Well, while I did not care to watch the actual award show (largely because I don’t much care for what 99% of these celebrities were going to say on them, which ended up proving Gervais’ point), many on Twitter shared videos and clips of Gervais hosting the award show and absolutely throttling the Hollywood elites that frequent such events.
Gervais slammed the Hollywood elites for politicizing absolutely everything, saying “You know nothing about the real world.” He also went on to say: “Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweat shops in China. So, well, you say you’re woke, but the companies you work for – I mean, unbelievable, Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you would call your agent, wouldn’t you? So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right? You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and f**k off. No one cares about your views on politics or culture.”
As I said, Ricky Gervais told the Hollywood elites present at the event what the rest of America wishes we could tell them (though with less swearing, for some of us, but the sentiment is about right). These are the very people who openly wish to harm the President of the United States (look at George Lopez replying to the Iranian’s offer of assassinating Trump for $80 million by saying “we’ll do it for half”, or look at Robert de Niro often expressing how he would like to punch Trump or throw feces at him) and who believe any belief in the God of the Bible is an affront to “human progress” and is inherently racist and bigoted and hateful by nature. They believe that if you love this country, you are an ignorant fool at best and a racist fascist at worst (often the latter) and someone who either ignores or agrees with the injustices of the past (while they themselves both profit off this country’s system and ignore the injustices of other countries, such as the fact that Iran publicly executes, often in a gruesome manner, homosexuals aka the people these dinguses are supposed to be supporting).
No one watches a movie hoping to get lectured about a topic the people making the movie have no clue about. Entertainment is supposed to offer some sort of escape from the troubles of the real world, not bring those troubles to the forefront and accuse the viewer of wittingly or unwittingly contributing to them.
And yet, these people do not heed these words, not even on the actual award show. One actress, who ironically was visibly pregnant, gave a speech about a woman’s "right" to choose to kill her own baby and that she wouldn’t have made it in Hollywood if she hadn’t had an abortion, which is total b.s., but signifies the heartless and selfish nature of these people. Another one tried to lecture people about climate change and about how her home country, Australia, was on fire because of climate change (the fires were caused by arson, not climate change, but what’s the truth to stop anyone from getting the opportunity to feel self-righteous and lambast people for “not doing enough” about climate change, despite the fact that she, herself, most likely doesn’t do diddly squat about it either, even if something actually could be done about it?)
But regardless, Ricky Gervais didn’t stop there. As the host, he got plenty of opportunity to speak and he took full advantage. He said the following:
“Tonight isn’t just about the people in front of the camera. In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world, people from every background, but they all have one thing in common: they’re all terrified of Ronan Farrow.”
To refresh your memories, Ronan Farrow is a journalist (the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow) who helped uncover the sexual abuses of Harvey Weinstein against actresses and other women in Hollywood, which sparked the “#MeToo” movement (before it, too, quickly got heavily politicized and taken over by the Left to attack any and all men, regardless of any wrongdoing or lack thereof having been committed).
He continued: “He’s coming for you. He’s coming for you. Look, talking of all you perverts, it was a big year, it was a big year for pedophile movies, Surviving R. Kelly, Leaving Never Land, Two Popes. [audience groans] Shut up, shut up, I don’t care, I don’t care.”
“No one cares about movies anymore, no one goes to the cinema, no one watches network TV. Everyone’s watching Netflix. This show should just be me coming out, going ‘Well done, Netflix, you win everything. Good night’.”
“But no, we drag it out three hours, you could binge watch the entire first season of ‘Afterlife’ instead of watching this show. That’s a show about a man who wants to kill himself because his wife dies of cancer and it’s still more fun than this. Okay, spoiler alert, season two is on the way, so in the end obviously he didn’t kill himself – just like Jeffrey Epstein.”
While some in the crowd laughed at the joke, there were audible groans at that, to which Gervais replied: “Shut up, I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care. You had to make your own way here, your own plane, didn’t you?”
At one point, he also took some jabs at the celebrities present and those who could not make it there: “You all look lovely all dolled up, you came here in your limos. I came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman. It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs,’ so…”
Gervais also added: “Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him. Even Prince Andrew is like, ‘Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.’”
In essence, Gervais points out not only the utter ignorance of Hollywood and their hypocrisy, but also the disgusting pedophile and sex slave ring that exists in “tinsel town”. Of course, this prompted SJWs who idolize and practically deify these celebrities to think of Gervais’ actions as “controversial” or him being a “jerk” for it.
Think of the guy what you will (he’s a Leftist, so I have my own reasons not to particularly like him, or at least, agree with everything he ever says, but to his credit, he is a prominent supporter of free speech for all, which is more than I can say for most other Leftists), but he told these people something no one has ever dared to tell them: the truth. They don’t know anything of what they talk about. They oppose the killing of Soleimani and support Iran in this, despite the fact that Iran kills its own citizens on the regular and executes homosexuals, as well as generally treats women as second-class citizens at best and have been since the revolution in 1979 that installed the current dictatorship system.
They lecture people about “doing the right thing” while accepting tons of money from China. They lecture people about climate change from the comfort of one of their many, often massive, homes that make up massive carbon footprints, or from the comfort of their private jets as they fly to one of these events or to a different country or state to film some scenes. They lecture people about “women’s rights” and “women’s liberation” despite the fact that there is nothing more enslaving than living life based on your carnal desires and avoiding as much responsibility as possible by committing acts of murder that are, for some reason, considered not only legal, but morally right by many in this country.
They lecture people about “women’s empowerment” while being complicit in or, at best, complacent about the sex trade that exists in Hollywood, as well as the pedophile rings that exist. They lecture us about being “tolerant” of others while they openly mock and display hatred towards anyone they disagree with, to the point where they consider such dissenters to be sons of Hitler, traitors to their race or traitors to their gender, or any combination of the three.
These people are as fake as the movies they star in and Ricky Gervais took them to task over such phony self-righteousness and utter hypocrisy.
“Do you suppose, O man – you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself – that you will escape the judgment of God?”

These last couple of weeks have been absolutely fantastic for the pro-life movement. First, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed into law a bill that would ban abortions once a heartbeat has been detected in a fetus (around 6 weeks into the pregnancy), soon after that, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed into law the country’s most pro-life law, banning abortions outright, and criminalizing the act of performing an abortion (not receiving one, which is what Leftists often lie about) and the Missouri House of Representatives and Senate passed their own heartbeat bill.
Naturally, Hollywood and the Left went absolutely nuclear regarding these great news, though primarily on Georgia, considering how often movies tend to be filmed there thanks to the state’s fairly low tax on production (in other words, it is cheap to film there).
Hollywood Leftists decided to boycott the state, citing the heartbeat bill as the reason for it:
“This law would make Georgia an inhospitable place for those in the film and television industry to work, including our members,” the Writers Guild of America said in a statement.
“It should instead be called a ‘forced pregnancy bill’ – because it would outlaw abortion before a woman even knows that she is pregnant,” C-list actress Alyssa Milano said. “It’s the most anti-woman bill of its kind in the country, and it sends the exact wrong message about the kind of state Georgia’s leaders wish to create. In short, HB 481 (the official name of the bill) would make Georgia the most regressive state in the country.”
I personally have an awful lot to say about these things. First, regarding the Writers Guild’s statement, how exactly is outlawing the murder of an unborn baby creating an inhospitable place for the film and television industries? Not being able to kill a child makes the state inhospitable to these industries? Perhaps, then, it’s the industries’ problem, not the State’s, if they literally cannot live or work in a state where killing children in the womb is deemed illegal.
Second, regarding Alyssa Milano’s statement, half of the victims of abortion are women, or girls. Why isn’t that taken into consideration when discussing how a bill is “anti-woman”? And this is without even taking into consideration how truly heartless (pun not intended) you must be to understand that a fetus has a heartbeat, a rather strong indication of its viability, and still think it is okay to kill it.
Third, as far as “regressive” goes, I would think that the slaughter of the innocent for literally no reason is more regressive and barbaric than the pursuit of saving and preserving a life, one of the inalienable rights given to us by God as detailed in the Declaration of Independence.
But regardless of what Hollywood Leftists will say, claim and think, the vast majority of America actually disagrees with them, at least when it comes to the heartbeat bill.
According to a Hill/HarrisX survey, most voters think that six-week abortion bans are either “just right” or “too lenient”.
34% of voters said they believe six-week abortion bans are “just right”, while 21% believe they are “too lenient”, with 45% of voters saying the bans are “too restrictive”.
In other words, 55% of voters support these types of bans while 45% are against them, a 10-point difference.
What is interesting is the fact that younger voters are actually more supportive of these bans.
The Hill reports that 52% of “respondents 65 years of age and older said they believed that six-week abortion bans are too restrictive. Thirty-one percent said they were just right while 17 percent said they were too lenient.” That’s a 52-48 split, and a 4-point difference.
“Among voters between the ages of 50-64, 41 percent said the new laws were too restrictive, 38 percent said they were just right, and 21 percent said they did not go far enough.” That’s 59% of voters in that age range who support such a ban, while only 41% oppose it, an 18-point difference.
“A 45 percent plurality of voters between 35-49 said the laws were too restrictive, 36 percent said they were just right and 18 percent said they were too lenient.” That’s 54% in favor of the bans and 45% against it, a 9-point difference.
“The youngest voters polled, those 34 and under, were most likely to say the abortion bans did not go far enough, although far less than a majority – 27 percent – said this. Forty-three percent said the laws were too restrictive while 30 percent said they were just right.” That’s 57-43, a 14-point difference.
I cannot imagine how hard a pill this must be to swallow for the Left. Ignoring the fact that a majority of voters polled said they supported these types of bills, the younger generations all had considerably bigger gaps between those who supported these bills and those who did not support them.
Younger generations are the ones the Left most want to get their hooks on. It is often said that “children are the future”, so it stands to reason that the Left wants younger voters siding with them on such issues than they would care about older ones. After all, they’ve already cast out old, white men from their voting bloc. They don’t care about getting their votes, only younger generations’.
Why do you think the Left is so adamant about lowering the voting age to 16? Because a young person is more likely to believe the bull crap the Left spews than someone who has been alive for a long while, has life experience, and understands that what the Left is spewing is bull crap.
Winston Churchill is often attributed (though has never been confirmed) for saying: “If you are not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at forty, you have no brain.”
The quote (whether or not it’s Churchill’s) speaks at the fact that young people are often more emotionally-driven rather than intellectually-driven. Take climate change as an example. Young people are indoctrinated since Kindergarten now-a-days to believe we are destroying our planet. Obviously, that would not be a good thing if that were true, but because young people are TOLD what to think and will not often challenge such deeply-engrained beliefs, they go through life believing this sort of thing. After all, you would have to be a monster to be okay with killing our planet… if that were actually what was going on.
But as people grow older and garner more life experience and start to develop their own line of thinking, they will come to challenge things they’ve been told in their youth and seek to find out if those things are actually true. That’s not to say that is what always happens, of course. Bernie Sanders was around when fire was discovered and he still thinks socialism is a great thing.
But what is expected of people is to learn basic truths about the world and shift from an emotional liberal to an intellectual conservative – going from believing we are killing our planet to using logic and reason to understand that we could do no such thing, at least with the methods described as being the culprit of such fabled destruction.
However, as we find in the aforementioned poll regarding six-week abortion bans, those who are younger actually take the more pro-life stance than the boomer generation, which saw the 1973 Roe v. Wade case essentially legalize abortion.
And even the boomer generation’s statistics in the poll find that there is a slim majority of boomers who are against these types of bills. 52-48 is considerably closer than the Left would want.
But in any case, I am thankful to God that so many people are aware of the fact that there is a life growing inside the woman and that no “my body, my choice” argument seems to be effective in the least bit. After all, what we are talking about is not a woman’s body, but the body that grows inside a woman. A separate entity with its own genetic code that is its own individual, will have its own name, life, and everything else that is attributed to humans once it is born. The general understanding here is that life is growing inside the womb, something even some (rather evil) Democrats understand.
While the fate of these bills in court is not exactly certain (let’s just say I don’t trust Kavanaugh any more), it is clear that a good number of Americans do not fall in line with the Left’s barbaric thinking that women have the “right” to slaughter their own children growing inside the womb.
Thank God for that.

I have largely avoided talking about the whole college scandal story going on with actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin because I could not care less about the problems of Hollywood Leftists, but I felt it necessary to say a little something here because of some of the comments that Loughlin’s family has made about the entire fiasco.
To summarize the entire thing as best I can, Loughlin and Huffman face charges for bribing the University of Southern California (USC) into letting their kids attend the school. Obviously, it was wrong and the two are paying the price for their illegal actions, but I do not care all that much about that. College, for the most part, is a cesspool of Left-wing garbage, so I couldn’t care less about the incestuous relationships that are present between Leftist schools and Leftist Hollywood elites.
But the comments coming from Loughlin’s family are something that I think I should take note of, to some extent.
According to HotAir.com: “’Lori is used to getting what she wants,’ says the family source. ‘This is why she got in trouble in the first place. She got fixated on getting her girls into USC.’… ‘For her, there was no other way… They needed to be at USC. It was very important for her to be able to say that her girls were at USC.’ For Loughlin, 54, ‘it was absolutely a status thing’ for her daughters to attend the elite Los Angeles university, where the admission rate was 13 percent in March 2018, the family source says. ‘And the fact that she wanted the girls to have things that she never had growing up.’”
Well, I guess getting a bad reputation is something Lori did not have growing up, so I’m sure her daughters appreciate it.
Jokes aside, I really just want to focus on that whole “it was absolutely a status thing” comment. I, for one, am not really surprised at all about that sort of mindset. Of course it was a status thing! For the Hollywood elite, sending their kids to college is not so that they can get an education (God knows colleges don’t offer that anymore). It’s about prestige. It’s about being able to tell people “Mmm, yes, my son is studying at Hhhhhaaaaaarrrrvvvaaaaarrrrdddd.” (Just imagine saying that in the most obnoxious and snooty voice possible while holding a glass of wine or champagne). It’s about being able to tell people “my child is better than your child”. Basically, it’s the adult, yet still very childish version of “my dad can beat up your dad.”
These people are incestuous, as I’ve established. In this case, that means they are entirely codependent on one another and on one another’s approval and satisfaction. Why do you think people like Harvey Weinstein would so often champion women’s rights while simultaneously doing unspeakable things to them in private? It’s because they seek one another’s approval and sending kids off to prestigious colleges is part of acquiring some bragging rights, at least for the ones who are old enough to have children going to college.
To these people, it’s shameful if their kids don’t go to an elite school. It’s shameful if, as with the case of Lori Loughlin’s daughter, their child has a YouTube channel about make-up tutorials that draws in millions of people and can be a legitimate source of income. That’s not elite; that’s not special. Her parents need to be able to tell their friends that their daughter attends a highly exclusive and prestigious university, studying the various genders of a tree and getting barely passable grades.
If they can tell other people that sort of thing, they feel special and prestigious themselves. It is, as the family source says, a status thing.
But it’s petty. Even if Loughlin and Huffman had gotten their children legitimately enrolled into her school, the reasons behind it all are still insanely petty and sad. These are people that depend entirely on what others think about them. If there is someone out there who MIGHT make fun or gossip about their child not going to a prestigious school (which highlights Loughlin’s and Huffman's narcissism that she might think people think about them all the time), they can’t possibly take it and will go to any means, even illegal ones, to avoid being shamed about it.
Well, despite what prestige or status you get out of telling people your child goes to an elite school, there is no greater status or more prestige than in being able to call yourself a follower of Christ and a child of God.
All the Loughlins and Huffmans of the world get out of bragging about where their child is being indoctrinated is just that: bragging rights. In reality, no one honestly cares about that. Why would they? The people the Loughlins tell this stuff to are just as self-centered and narcissistic and incestuous as they are, so why would they be impressed by such a thing? If anything, they might get envious (which honestly might also be what the Loughlins and Huffmans sought, which makes it even more petty and sad), but certainly not impressed.
But that is all they can get out of that. If, however, you are a child of God and a follower of Christ, your rewards far exceed that of “bragging rights”.
Namely, what you get is access to the most prestigious and hard-to-access place in all of existence: Heaven. I might not be able to get into Hhhhaaaarrrvvvaaaarrrddd, but I know I can and will get into Heaven due to the only requirement for doing so is to receive Christ as your Lord and Savior. I’ve done that, and I continuously do my best to obey the Lord, so I know I’ll get into Heaven. But I can’t say the same for these people.
All that is required to enter the most coveted area in all of existence is the receiving of Christ Jesus into our hearts, that He would forgive our sins and redeem us in the Eyes of the Lord.
And yet, not everyone does it. Now, I won’t go much into that, since that’s a topic on its own and I know full-well why people don’t do it, but it should be pointed out that the most logical thing anyone can do is to follow Jesus Christ.
But in any case, the sort of reward you get out of being a Christian is eternal life at the side of God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth. There is no greater status than that of being a Christian. And I do not mean an earthly status. Of course, being a Christian will lead people into a life of persecution by wicked people, so it is not an earthly status where one can receive the benefits of it immediately. However, the status, the rewards, come in the form of a rejoicing Father who welcomes His lost sheep.
Personally, I’d much rather appease the Lord than brag to Man about what I can do or have done. I’d much rather follow Christ than receive any form of status from Leftist Hollywood.
“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Moving away from the hot button issue of the Kavanaugh accusation, I feel it is important to share some feel-happy news in a world that constantly tries to take away your joy. (Not that the Kavanaugh accusation has me down, knowing that it won’t derail Kavanaugh, but the Left tries their best to take away people’s joy).
The feel-happy news, if you really want to call it news, is that recently Chris Pratt had an interview with The Associated Press in which he discussed a number of things ranging from fitness to who his actor role model is (Tom Cruise, surprisingly, but mostly because Cruise does his own stunts), and the topic we’re focusing on particularly: his unabashedly Christian faith.
The interviewer for the AP said the following: “At recent award show appearances, you went out on stage and talked publicly about your faith. Is it an especially important time to do that?”
Personally, I find the phrasing of the question intriguing. He’s not asking if Pratt thinks it’s especially important for him to do it. He’s asking if it’s especially important to do that in our current time. I do not know who the AP interviewer is, but they might have a good eye for what is happening in today’s world and the impact of Christianity.
Alas, I likely will never know if the interviewer is a Christian him/herself and that that was the reason for phrasing the question in that manner, so let’s move on to Pratt’s answer.
“I don’t know that I am so much more motivated by where the world is or if it’s just what I’m feeling called to do right now. I think it’s a combination of both things… That kind of a message, it might not be for everybody. But there is a group of people for whom that message is designed. And nothing fills my soul more than to think that maybe some kid watching that would say, ‘Hey, I’ve been thinking about that. I’ve been thinking about praying. Let me try that out.’ That’s like the only way I feel like I can repay what has essentially been a giant gift in my life.”
A good answer, in my opinion. Obviously, it becomes increasingly important to spread the Word of God in a world that is adamantly rebellious against Him, a world that defies Him at every given opportunity and treads closer and closer towards the devil.
The Kavanaugh accusation alone is proof of this. The Left seeks to destroy him using a letter detailing, with flawed accuracy, events that happened sometime 30 years ago somewhere in the Northeast United States. The accuser brings up no evidence to support her claim, no witnesses to corroborate her claims, has refused to attend a hearing where her story would be heard, and when she agrees, she sets up “fairness” terms where likely she gets to decide what is fair and what isn’t, and demands the FBI investigate an issue they have twice said would not investigate and an issue that really falls under local law enforcement jurisdiction, not federal, not to mention an issue that would have come up during the vetting of Kavanaugh soon after his nomination if it had happened.
And even with all of these facts, the Left, the media and Hollywood celebrities are treating that one letter to Feinstein as gospel and the truth, seeking to destroy the career and livelihood of someone just because he poses a threat to the evil Supreme Court decision of 1973: Roe v. Wade.
Not to get too much into the actual topic, since everyone and their grandmother is talking about it, but it does offer a good example of a world that is getting closer to the devil. A world where the life of a man can be ruined by flimsy accusations that no one should believe, but somehow many do.
But the other part that is important is that spreading the Word of God and thanking the Lord at every given opportunity is something we are called to do no matter what the circumstance. Pratt does well in answering his question by saying it’s a combination of the state of the world today and the fact that he’s called to do it.
Then, the AP interviewer asks the following question: “Does it feel like a risk sometimes in Hollywood?”
To which Pratt answers: “No, not at all… I think that there’s this narrative that exists out there that Hollywood is anti-Christian or anti-religious, but it’s just not the case. They are kind of not anti-anything. They are kind of pro- whatever is authentic to you. And I like that. Because it’s authentic for me to be pro-Christian, pro-Jesus. That’s my thing. I like it. And I’ve never had anyone try to shame me, to my face. Maybe they go say it behind my back. But if that’s the case, go ahead. You can say whatever you want about me – to my face or behind my back. I’m not going to change.”
Interesting answer he gives here.
And there might be SOME truth to what he says. At this point in time, just about everyone, particularly people in Hollywood, knows that Pratt is a Christian. Despite this, he still gets to have lead roles in huge blockbuster movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. He is enjoying pretty great success thus far, even with people knowing he’s a Christian.
However, that is where my agreement with his response ends. I’m not a Hollywood star like Pratt, so it’s not like I have inside knowledge on what happens there regarding this topic, but I know for a fact that Leftist Hollywood is anti-something. They are unabashedly anti-Trump.
Beyond that, they tend to be anti-God as well. Pratt may never have had someone try to shame him over his faith in the past, but we know very well that Hollywood, both in their movies and in their celebrities’ actions, are anti-God.
No, they may not necessarily come out every single day and shout that they hate God, but their actions show these types of feelings.
In their movies, time and time again, they try to shove Leftist messages down people’s throats. Messages such as “there is nothing wrong with being gay” (homosexuality is a sin. Sin is wrong.) or “it’s okay if you have an abortion, it’s just a blob of cells” or “all cops are racists”, etc.
That’s not necessarily every single movie, but we often see these messages in the big screen.
And that’s just mentioning the actual films. This is without mentioning the undoubtedly millions of dollars these Hollywood celebrities donate to organizations such as Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and others that are all inherently evil.
I’ve already explained why the #MeToo movement is evil in a previous article, so no need to repeat myself here. It’s fairly obvious why Planned Parenthood is evil and have written a multitude of articles detailing how and why they are evil. And with BLM, the reason it’s evil is because its leaders try to make every case where a cop shoots a black person strictly about race. Yeah, there are occasions when the officer definitely was out of line in killing someone who was not a threat. Such cases exist, but for the most part, cops shoot to kill someone who is an obvious threat to their lives or the lives of others.
So while Chris Pratt may have never been subject of persecution regarding his faith (at least in person. Social media might be a different story), it’s not entirely accurate to say that Hollywood people aren’t anti-anything. Everyone has an opinion, and they have the right to said opinion.
Hollywood Leftists have the right to promote filth, to support evil organizations, etc. But to say they are not anti-anything is not entirely accurate. These actions show me the kind of people they are: people who do not have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who do not follow His commandments, who do not obey the Lord and go out of their way to defy Him. The actions that I have listed above are proof of this.
Again, they might not come right out and say they hate God, but their actions speak louder than anything they could say.
In any case, I want to focus more on the fact that, regardless of what Pratt thinks is the way Hollywood acts (again, I can’t claim to have more knowledge than him), he himself will not be deterred in his faith in Christ.
That’s what I believe is the most important thing to take away from this and the most important thing to keep in mind. It’s great that Pratt is so open about his faith in Christ and wants to share it with the world. It’s great that he thanks God as often as possible and seemingly, that he prays whenever he can. Beyond all other opinions we may have on this world: whether or not Trump is a good President, whether or not socialism works (it doesn’t and that’s a fact), whether or not we are being finessed by other countries regarding trade deals, what is important is having faith in the Lord.
That’s why I don’t mind that Pratt is not political. That he doesn’t necessarily show favoritism towards one candidate or another. Aside from the fact that he’d effectively be committing career suicide if he were to say he’s a conservative (though I imagine people gather that, knowing he’s a Christian), he knows that it’s more important to focus on matters of Heaven than of Earth. That the Lord comes first and everything else comes last.

Today’s Hollywood and media culture is chockfull of pandering, virtue-signaling and politically correct b.s. What with the recent trend of remaking every movie into a women’s only film to even having Batwoman, a canonically straight female, be turned into a lesbian superheroine.
So, it’s not surprising that unhinged Leftists attack other unhinged Leftists who are not “woke” enough. Gay rights groups GLAAD and 5050by2020, led by Jill Soloway, who created the show “Transparent” about a transgender woman, encouraged Hollywood to better represent the Transgender community in their films, saying that she got “four dozen production companies, talent agencies, film studios, and advocacy groups” to show “support for expanded LGBTQ representation”, according to Variety.
This comes relatively after Scarlett Johansson received backlash for being cast as a transgender man despite her being what these nut-jobs describe as “cisgender”, or someone who identifies with the gender they were born as aka a normal and mentally-stable person.
Soloway says that “cisgender actors portraying transgender individuals is harmful because of the message it sends to non-trans people who may believe transgender people are merely dressing in costume”, despite the fact that she herself has cast a “cisgender” man to play a transgender woman.
Now, while I typically never side with Hollywood on anything given that they themselves are out of their darn minds about everything to the point where at least one of their more prominent figures legitimately did not know there were people who were against abortion (*ahem* Mila Kunis *ahem*) and the fact that they go along with every socialist narrative out there, despite the fact that such policies would ruin the country and would eventually ruin the very people pushing for such policies, I always side with reasoned thought and logic.
Do you want to know why there is so little representation of transgender people in Hollywood? Why actors and actresses feel compelled to play transgender people even if they themselves are not transgender? BECAUSE TRANSGENDER PEOPLE COMPRISE ONLY 0.6% OF THE POPULATION!
And before any liberals reading this, if there even are any, try to challenge that number, know that that statistic comes from the Left’s version of the Gospel: the New York Times. Of course, this being the New York Times, I myself am fairly skeptical of what they tell me. However, considering the narrative that there are a lot of transgender people out there, seeing such an incredibly low number from a Leftist source who routinely lies and has employed an open bigot, I will trust that number for the time being.
This means that current Hollywood representation of transgender people might be on par or might even be over-representing them (can’t say for certain because I have not seen a Hollywood movie, in theaters or otherwise, in years, and simply refuse to watch anything new they release, knowing it will be filled with garbage).
But, of course, such a thing cannot be allowed to remain. The Left simply must push for more transgenders to be in movies, even if that creates an over-representation of transgenders. And this is all in the name of “equality”, even if it creates a glaring inequality.
The problem, of course, with what Soloway wants is that it is, as of now, relatively impossible. If 0.6% of the population in America is transgender, you will be hard-pressed to find that many transgender people to play a transgender person. Granted, this is Hollywood and it makes sense if many transgenders live in California, the land of insanity. And according to that same New York Times article, there are 1.4 million transgenders in the U.S., so you could, theoretically, find transgender people out there, but that does not necessarily mean they all want to be actors.
What I’m getting at is the fact that, if Hollywood really wants to represent transgender people in movies, they’ll have to “settle” with “cisgender” actors playing that role. It’s a bit of a stretch, considering those people would have to do something called “acting”, but I think they would be able to do it.
Of course, this all points to the larger problem: they are pretending transgenderism is a perfectly natural thing, at least for humans, and that there is nothing wrong with it. There is.
I’ve repeatedly quoted the World Health Organization having diagnosed transgenderism as “gender dysphoria”. Of course, since everything has to fit the Left’s agenda, the W.H.O. had to declassify gender dysphoria as a disorder in order to appease their fascistic overlords who wish to rip apart the fabric of humanity (all-the-while also classifying video game addiction as a mental disorder, which is ridiculous).
Hollywood, Soloway, and the entirety of the Left all promote the idea of being transgender and disregarding science itself. They all promote the idea of telling these people that there’s nothing wrong with them, even if the evidence is self-evident.
They also promote the idea that believing transgenderism is a disorder is wrong and that people like me, who call out the Left for this and call out the fact that this is, indeed, a mental disorder, should not be allowed to point it out.
Like I said in my previous article, they only want their ideas and their thoughts to be shared, not ours and no one who can realistically and honestly claim to be logical and sane.
What this all culminates to is a society that has long-abandoned not only the Creator, but even science and logic. A society that is 180 degrees backwards. A society that the Left dominates because it’s just as crazy as they are.
One can only pray that people recover their sanity and, thus, repent of this.
1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
It is rare to see Hollywood celebrities, particularly massive stars, showing their faith in God to the public, but Chris Pratt is not quite like other Hollywood celebrities.
Aside from the obvious fact that he’s not an Atheistic liberal, Chris Pratt is not afraid to be so outspoken about his faith in the Lord. We’ve seen him tweet prayers for close friends and being an overall good guy, but this speech might flat out make him my new favorite Hollywood actor.
At the MTV Movie awards earlier this week, Chris Pratt was honored with the “Generation Award”. In his acceptance speech (video below), he felt compelled to give a list of tips, or as he calls them, “9 Rules From Chris Pratt”.
Here’s some of the list, the ones I think are the best “rules”:
Number 1: “Breathe. If you don’t, you’ll suffocate.”
Number 2: “You have a soul. Be careful with it.”
Number 3: “Don’t be a turd. If you’re strong, be a protector and if you’re smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons and do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”
Number 5: “Doesn’t matter what it is, earn it. A good deed, reach out to someone in pain, be of service, it feels good and it’s good for your soul.”
Number 6: “God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”
Number 8: “Learn to pray. It’s easy and it’s so good for your soul.”
Number 9: “Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are; you’re not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there’s a powerful force that designed you that way. And if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace and grace is a gift. Like the freedom we enjoy in this country that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.”
Finally, he ends his speech by saying: “God bless you. Please get home safely.”
Let me tell you, I far prefer Chris Pratt’s acceptance speech than I did Robert De Niro’s. Not only is Pratt’s not an unnecessary and dull tirade against Trump that shows signs of insanity, but it’s also a very good and positive message.
Frankly, I don’t know which rule is my favorite. I certainly appreciate number 6’s bold and truthful statement about God’s existence and His unconditional love for us. It’s basic, but it’s also very much appreciated. If this were a church sermon, this would be an unnecessary proclamation. Pretty much everyone in a church is already accepting of the fact that God is real. But since this is an award ceremony with other A- and B-list celebrities, such as Chadwick Boseman and Mila Kunis, I would say that Pratt’s bold statement is a welcome change of pace for what otherwise might’ve been yet another unnecessary and alienating tirade against Trump.
And before a Leftist reader (not certain that there even are any here) claims that God is “alienating”, I’ll say that it’s really not. First, his proclamation isn’t bashing the beliefs of half his audience; it’s boldly professing his own. Second, Pratt’s message is about the love God has for us. That is literally the opposite of alienating.
This proclamation is certainly a welcome change of pace from the usual Leftist insanity that they promulgate and shove down people’s throats.
The other two that are in contention would have to be 8 and 9. 8, much like 6, is simple but powerful. It’s also a fantastic tip to anyone who hears it. Prayer is a fundamental part of faith in God and will honestly help a lot of people.
For anyone who feels left out and as though they don’t matter, prayer can help them feel and believe that there is someone in this universe that is listening. And aside from feeling good, you can also build a good relationship with God in this manner. Though He already knows what is in your heart, He delights in your prayers.
But number 9 seems to be the best one out of all of them. Let’s read that one more time, shall we? “Nobody is perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are; you’re not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there’s a powerful force that designed you that way. And if you’re willing to accept that you will have grace and grace is a gift…”
This both takes the time to give fantastic advice for people who feel they should be perfect and continues sharing the greatness of God. You are not perfect. You never will be, neither should you try to be. You were not designed to be perfect. You were designed according to His purpose. According to His plan.
“… Like the freedom we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.”
That is perhaps the most powerful part of his entire speech. Not only does he show his patriotism for his country in acknowledging that this country enjoys freedoms next to no other country enjoys and those freedoms were fought for by brave men in the past who died for the vision of a free nation and a free people, he brings it back to God and the sacrifice Christ made at the cross.
He died so that we may be free from sin, forgiven for those sins and that we may be given grace to enter Heaven should we repent, ask for this forgiveness and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior.
And yes, I suppose you could say it’s a bit blasphemous to compare the sacrifice made by men to create this nation with the sacrifice made by the Son of God to give us salvation, but I think Pratt understands the unbelievable sacrifice Christ made at the cross and wanted to also add in a bit of patriotism with a parallel that works.
Of course, Christ’s sacrifice is incredibly more important to far many more people. This is something we can all agree on, including the superstar actor. But it’s worth taking note of the sacrifice other people made in making this a free nation. Let’s be honest, how many other actors winning awards will take the time to note the greatness of our nation and its fortuitous freedom which many take for granted?
Hollywood people usually either attack the POTUS, the policy he’s enacting or employing even if it’s good for the country or has been employed by previous Presidents or flat out attack our system of government and wish for some sort of communist revolution to occur (which would not happen in a capitalist country, as dictated by history).
But Pratt’s acknowledgment of the sacrifice made by our Founding Fathers and the revolutionaries, as well as the immense sacrifice made by Christ on the cross is noteworthy. Like the freedoms we enjoy in this country, we should not take for granted the sacrifice and the gift that Christ has given us.
If left entirely up to us, it is highly unlikely we would be able to reach the Kingdom of God. In fact, let me rephrase that. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to reach the Kingdom of God without Him. Verse after verse explains well how we cannot enter Heaven on our own. So taking Christ’s sacrifice for granted would lead us nowhere desirable.
When people in movies and t.v. talk about someone making the ultimate sacrifice aka laying down their lives to save their friends, no other being in the history of Earth ever made a sacrifice as powerful, successful and grand as the one Christ made on the cross. A character in a movie or show may be able to save his friend or group of friends, but Christ saved all who believeth in Him. I can’t possibly claim to know a precise number, but it should be around the BILLIONS range in the roughly 2000 years since His death.
But returning to Pratt’s speech, I find it endearing to see a Hollywood mega star such as himself being so outspoken about his faith in God and his appreciation for this country. I think this goes to show that Pratt is the Lot to Hollywood’s Sodom. A man of faith in a wicked environment. I pray that Pratt’s faith is strong enough to withstand the wicked environment he lives in. So far, he seems to be doing well.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

There is one particular characteristic about the Left that they would rather no one ever mention or call out that puts them in a worse light than they already are. Beyond actively trying to discredit the legitimacy of an election and trying to impeach a sitting U.S. President on the grounds that they simply don’t like him, the Left also has one characteristic that is patently obvious to those who look even a little: hypocrisy.
In an interview with the UK’s Metro magazine, former Hollywood actor and A-lister Rupert Everett, who’s most famous for his role in the late-90s romantic comedy “My Best Friend’s Wedding”, or, if you are young like me, Prince Charming from Shrek 2, Everett called out Hollywood’s hypocrisy regarding LGBT people.
“There’s tons of roles that I haven’t got for lots of different reasons, some of them probably for not being a good enough actor or doing a lousy audition – all that counts. But there were three or four big films, when I was successful, that the director and the other actors wanted me to be in and that I was absolutely blocked from by a studio, just for the fact of being gay.”
Now, I simply must point something out here. Everett does not exactly provide evidence to support that claim. Anyone can claim they didn’t get something, be it a role in a movie or a job, for the simple fact of being gay. Anyone can make that sort of claim. However, what he says here is relatively specific. It’s not simply that he didn’t get the part because he was gay - it’s that, while some people working on the films wanted him, the studio specifically were the ones to deny him that, for whatever reason. BLOCK, as he mentions.
Not to mention that whenever people claim they didn’t get something because of their race or religion or gender or sexuality, they tend to sound as though they are ranting. I understand that this is on print and not a video or audio of the interview, but even the printed word can showcase the tone of some people. I’m certain you can see the tone and pace of a heated attack or calling out of a Leftist argument when you read these articles. Reading what Everett said there, it didn’t sound as though he was ranting. It sounded as though he was revealing something that is relatively common place for him.
Everett continues: “That does absolutely happen. But at the same time, it has been the making of me as well. It has forced me always to try and be creative, to try and make something up. I think my career as a writer would not have happened if I had been heterosexual, active, working non-stop.”
While he does count his blessings, in a way, as having the time to be a writer, he does casually point out the fact that, if he were straight, studios would keep him busy with major roles in movies. That, because of his homosexuality, Hollywood studios have denied him some roles and unwittingly given him the time to do something else with his time to further his career.
But then, Everett lays on Hollywood quite strongly: “My position of working in this aggressively heterosexual milieu of showbusiness has definitely made me feel kind of parallel [to Oscar Wilde, the character he portrays in his new movie ‘The Happy Prince’.] Of course I haven’t been put in prison and subjected to hard labour and I haven’t died from it, but I have been constantly on the back foot, really, in my career as a gay actor…”
And that first part really should be a huge attack on Hollywood. To the Left, there is nothing worse than a straight, white male who is ok with being straight, white and male. To refer to them as an “aggressively heterosexual milieu (environment) of showbusiness” is a slap in the face to them. They live in a world of progressivism. To appear as anything less is a crime, in their eyes.
The funny thing is that, they are honestly not progressive.
What I mean by that is that, while they may say progressive things and issue progressive messages (such as “f*** Trump”, apparently), they live a life of hypocrisy. They may SOUND progressive but they AREN’T progressive.
Let’s take Leonardo DiCaprio, for example. He is a massive supporter of “green energy” and other nonsense that is meant to “fight climate change”. Meanwhile, he is a massive contributor to the very “cause” of climate change.
According to a Daily Mail article from 2017, “It can be estimated that DiCaprio has potentially emitted up to 418.4 tons of CO2 this year because of his globe-trotting. The average American emits 19 tons a year.”
DiCaprio’s gas emissions are 22 times WORSE than the average American, and yet, calls for you, the average American, to be more concerned with the environment and to take better care of it. That figure only talks about his CO2 emission due to his travels. I wonder how much he pollutes with his at least 7 different homes, according to Realtor.com.
If he were really a “progressive”, he would not be so willing to have such a massive carbon footprint on the world. Does he not know the damage he’s causing to the environment? What kind of friend is he to Mother Nature if he is abusing her like this, while turning around and DEMANDING all of us to be more environmentally-cautious?
Moving on from DiCaprio’s faux progressive lifestyle, let’s visit a very hot topic from late last year: sexual assault, abuse, harassment, etc.
Of course, I’m certain you know who I want to focus on. Pervy Harvey Weinstein, of course. How many times has he called for progressive and feminist ideals? How many times has he met with top feminist icons such as Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton? How many times was he seen as a pro-woman Hollywood mogul? Well, maybe he was a little bit too pro-woman.
If Weinstein really believed in everything he and his friends were talking about to the cameras - about women being given better wages, women being given the “right” to choose - then he wouldn’t have forced some of them to have a better wage by sleeping with him. He wouldn’t have taken away a woman’s right to choose whether or not she had sexual contact with him.
Now, let’s move on to the “issue” of having a border wall (which perplexes me as to how defending and securing our national border can even be considered an issue of debate) and the refugee crisis.
The UK Daily Mail absolutely shreds both the Clooneys and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
According to their article, the two celebrity couples have 8 houses combined (Clooneys 5, Brangelina 3). All of which secure and none of which help these “poor Syrian refugees looking for a new home”.
You see, to these people, YOU should be the one taking care of the refugees. YOU should be the one willingly giving up your home to military-aged members of the cult of Islam. YOU should be the one to happily live with immigrants. Never mind the fact that the Clooneys moved out of their home in Italy precisely because of the influx of immigrants. They are still the jewels of society and you should worship the ground they walk on because they are always right.
Give me a break.
So, when I read that Everett interview calling out the hypocrisy of Hollywood regarding gay people, I was about as shocked as when I saw the Golden State Warriors win another championship. It’s very much expected because that is just who they are.
They say one thing, but you should never expect them to live by such words. To hold them accountable means to be a hater and you ought to be silenced for calling out such wonderful gods. That is the Left’s mentality, anyway.
Their MO is “do as I say, not as I do.” How anyone can respect and admire such blatant hypocrisy is beyond me.
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.”
