I have always had a soft spot for actor Jon Voight. I love the way he acts and I adore that he is conservative and not ashamed of it. A video has come out showing Voight wiping off seats for Gold Star families at President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” celebration. It went viral and fast. Voight is all Hollywood should be – he is indeed a national treasure.
Gold Star families are the relatives of U.S. military members who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the battle for our freedom. They gave everything they had so we could live the way we do and Voight recognizes that and respects it. “While Hollywood Elites protested President @realDonaldTrump’s ‘Salute to America’ on July 4th,” captioned Michael Hahn, “Here’s a video of John Voight cleaning the rain off seats for Gold Star families. This is what it’s all about!”
Jon Voight is one of the very few voices in Hollywood that has spoken up in defense and support of President Trump. In May, he posted a viral video to his Twitter account declaring Trump “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.” I think it is safe to say he really, really likes President Trump.
Voight has supported Trump from the very beginning. He spoke a number of times at various events during Trump’s inauguration, including during the inauguration concert, during which he declared, ‘God answered our prayers.’” And that wasn’t the last time the respected actor has said that either.

From The Daily Wire:
“In fact, on Tuesday, Voight posted another video similar in flavor: “Our nation is stronger and wiser because we have taken a chance on a man who has become the greatest president. I’m honored to call him President Trump,” he told his followers.
“My fellow Americans, I stand with you and the truth of our nation, with great pride and honor. I say this truly from a place of God’s truths. Our nation is stronger and wiser because we have taken a chance on a man who has become the greatest president. I’m honored to call him President Trump,” said Voight, as reported by Yahoo.
“And as we come closer to 2020, let us track all the magnificent documentations that have been signed, sealed and delivered to this country and its glory. We must continue this race of truths and stand with President Trump for his next win. Because this is more than win; this is not a sacrifice. This is God’s honor, God’s trust for this nation. For this land of liberty. For justice for all,” he continued.

“This is America, this land of the free,” added the actor. “This is our president, Donald Trump, that will set the nation to be the greatest land of peace and love … and great again. God bless.”
“Twitter users were pleased with Mr. Voight’s gesture, replying to the video, “More class than 90% of Hollywood elites,” and, “He is a humble man. Hat off for him.”
“Another Twitter user wrote, “Great work Johhny! Couldn’t you also see other Hollywood actors like Johnny Depp & Leonardo DiCaprio do this? Neither could I.”
“Way to go Jon Voight! Finally a decent and caring for his Fellow Man celebrity. U have better odds of winning the lottery than finding another one,” said one woman. “God Bless Jon we appreciate ur patriotism and love for ur country and countrymen.”’
It is deeply moving to see someone of Jon Voight’s stature bend a knee to wipe off the seats for these families. It puts a lump in your throat and brings a tear to your eye. Not only because it is patriotic, caring, and selfless… but because we see it so seldom these days. Which is just unbearably sad.
80-year-old Oscar-winning Jon Voight was videoed holding a roll of paper towels and working with other volunteers to dry off the chairs that would soon be occupied by Americans who have sacrificed so much. It wasn’t a photo-op or staged… which made it even more moving.
This is what true patriotism looks like. Hollywood should take note and be deeply ashamed that they aren’t fit to shine Voight’s shoes much less fill them.

New York City To Allow Illegals To Apply For Affordable Housing, Compete With US Citizens
It’s almost impossible to live in New York City unless you make six-figures these days and rent is sky-high there. The Big Apple is now going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for affordable housing thereby competing with US citizens in a scarce and over-priced market. It will wind up hurting those struggling to make it already in NYC that are here legally.
Rent-subsidized housing is already limited in quantity amid a homeless crisis and skyrocketing rents thanks to progressive policies put in place by Democrats in that state and city. Chief among those pushing these policies is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. He just introduced new eligibility rules that will allow the city’s approximate 725,000 illegal alien residents to apply for subsidized, affordable housing — which has historically been reserved for American taxpayers.
No longer will New Yorkers who apply to live in affordable housing have to show their credit rating, a legitimate Social Security number, and documents proving that they are a US taxpayer. Instead, applicants will only have to prove that they paid rent on time every month for a year, a plan that is likely to allow thousands of illegal aliens to obtain affordable housing units over American citizens.
“De Blasio has hoped to increase the number of affordable housing units to 300,000 by 2026, a limited amount for a city with more than 8.5 million residents, the majority of whom are renters who have had to deal with increasing housing prices.
“Already, as Bloomberg News notes, the city receives more than 500 applications for each available affordable housing unit that currently exists with the stricter rules. That number is expected to significantly increase when the new rules open the application process to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens and temporary foreign workers on various visa programs, shutting out more and more Americans from cheaper housing.
“The country’s mass illegal and legal immigration policy of the last four decades has greatly driven population growth in the country’s largest cities like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. As a result, experts — including former federal immigration official Lou Di Leonardo — say rents and housing prices sour with increased competition for affordable housing.
“Leonardo wrote in the San Fransisco Chronicle:
“Just like everyone else, immigrants need places to live. Their demand for a limited supply of apartments and houses drives up rents, especially in metropolitan areas where immigrants tend to concentrate. Curbing immigration levels would do more than any welfare program to ensure that working-class Americans can afford the roofs over their heads.
“Take the Bay Area, for example. Immigrants account for roughly 36% of the population. The average home was valued around $1.34 million last year. San Francisco’s housing prices have risen so rapidly that one U.N. official called it a “human rights violation.”
“In Los Angeles, where immigrants make up 35% of the population, home values shot up 50% in the past five years. Nine in ten homes are now unaffordable to the average L.A. resident.
“As of 2017, New York City is now home to more than three million foreign-born residents — making up about 37 percent of the total city’s population. This indicates that there are more foreign-born residents living in New York City today than there are people living in Chicago, Illinois; San Diego, California; and Houston, Texas.
“Coinciding with illegal and legal immigration that has increased New York City’s population, one-bedroom rents in the city, as well as two-bedroom rents, have grown to astronomical levels. The latest analysis by Zumper finds that median one-bedroom New York City rent is about $3,050 a month, growing 3.7 percent in August and beating out the last three-year, all-time high of median rents in June, which came in at $2,980 a month.
“Two-bedroom monthly rents in New York City also grew more than two percent this month, increasing the median rate to about $3,450 for the city’s residents.”
New York City can’t even provide for their own and yet they are giving special consideration to those breaking the rule of law. It makes no logical sense and it will hurt New Yorkers. In the name of political correctness, De Blasio and his affiliates are choosing illegal immigrants over actual New Yorkers and that is just wrong. Hopefully, they will vote him out next time around.
As Lou Di Leonardo, a former senior ICE official said at the San Francisco Chronicle: “For tens of millions of Americans, the rent is too high. Changing our immigration laws would bring it down.” Yes, it would. We need to reduce immigration-fueled population growth.

New Gay Bishop Says God Is A Woman
I would never attend the Episcopal Church as a Christian. They have turned the gospel upside down on its head. Rev. Thomas Brown, who is married to a fellow priest, was ordained as a bishop of the diocese of Maine in the Episcopal Church June 22. Immediately following his ordination, Brown referred to God as a “she” twice in the Nicene Creed. I guess I’m old school… but I refer to God as a ‘he’. His gender doesn’t matter to me but his commandments and directives surely do.
“She is worshipped and glorified. She has spoken through the Prophets,” the just-ordained Bishop Brown stated, referring to the Holy Spirit. I find that offensive and nothing short of political pandering. The Nicene Creed was written 1,638 years ago and only uses masculine pronouns to refer to God. Oddly enough, the microphones at the Cathedral of St. Luke put forth Bishop Curry’s voice just fine for most of the creed, except for when he referred to God as a ‘she’.
From The Daily Caller:
“Deacon Todd Thomas of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington told the Daily Caller that he has never heard an Episcopal priest use female pronouns in the creed. Individual bishops and priests can, however, change words and phrases in the Nicene Creed, Deacon Thomas explained. He cautioned any changes to the creed should be done “in conversation” with the lay people.
“Deacon Thomas told the Daily Caller he has heard Episcopal priests use female pronouns for God outside of the context of official creeds.
“The Episcopal church has a tradition of interpreting the Book of Proverbs’ mentions of “Lady Wisdom” as referring to the Holy Spirit, Deacon Thomas said.
“Inclusive language” of God is encouraged by the Episcopal Church. This “means the use of male and female imagery and metaphors in a balanced way to express the truths we know of God,” the Episcopal Dictionary of the Church says.
“Bishop Brown describes himself as a “servant leader who strives for justice among all people and who continues to address white privilege, dismantle racism, and work for the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the Body of Christ.”
“The bishop met his husband, Father Tom Mousin, when Father Mousin was serving as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. Brown’s husband has since converted to the Episcopal Church, and been ordained in that church.
“It is possible that Father Mousin will take up a position at a parish in his husband’s diocese, he said on Facebook, explaining he would have oversight from an outside bishop.”
Our Rector and his wife traveled to Maine this weekend to be present for the consecration of Thomas Brown as bishop of that diocese. The bishop is the 2nd openly gay diocesan in TEC. pic.twitter.com/rUKLk9WpPX

In 2018, the Episcopal Church mandated that all dioceses would perform same-sex marriages. It doesn’t matter whether the bishop objects or not, they are commanded to conduct the ceremony. William Love, the Episcopal bishop of Albany, New York is in a state of partial inhibition because he has declined to allow priests to celebrate same-sex weddings. In other words, he’s between a rock and a hard place over his church’s doctrine.
More from The Daily Caller:
“Twenty years before this resolution, Episcopal bishops at the Lambeth Conference rejected “homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.” They also voted that they “cannot advise the legitimizing or blessing of same-sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions.”
“A wider battle is brewing in the denomination over the subject of gay marriage. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby faces opposition from the Global Anglican Future Conference for inviting bishops in same-sex relationships to the last Lambeth Conference. At the same time, Episcopal church leaders have objected to Welby’s decision to not invite bishops’ same-sex spouses to the conference.
“Bishop Brown’s ordination is the second time a gay man with a partner was elected a bishop in the Episcopal Church. Gene Robinson was elected a bishop in 2003 but has since divorced his partner, Mark Andrew. Mary Glasspool, a lesbian married to Becki Sander, was elected a bishop suffragan in 2009 and was present at Brown’s ordination.”
My, how times have changed and the Episcopal Church no longer resembles what it once was.
My heart is filled with gratitude: for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine,who saw in Thomas James Brown, my spouse what I…
From 1990 to 1994, Brown worked as the director of education for Planned Parenthood in South Central Michigan. Why am I not surprised? He condones the slaughter of the unborn as well. Figures. In 2018, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for “women’s reproductive health and reproductive health procedures to be treated as all other medical procedures.”
Silly me, I have always thought that if you are a Christian, you follow the teachings of the Bible. You don’t twist them to fit your immorality, whims, or political agenda. If you do, you aren’t really a Christian, now are you? There is no such thing as ‘woke’ parishioners and clergy… just faux Christians.
