Last Tuesday I wrote a post about awakened Christians and what practical steps they could take to finally fight back. The inimitable War Pig commented back, “In other words, they need a modern-day Martin Luther.” And that really got me thinking. The Right has been wandering in the desert for thirty years and only saw any success when Donald Trump appeared. Are we just waiting for the right man to come along to start a modern-day cultural reformation?
America has known several religious revivals in her history but it seems this will have to be something different. It’s not a religious revival it’s more like a societal purge. Instead of just Martin Luther we need another Andrew Jackson thrown in for good measure. What is needed is a Normal Man’s Revolt. The societal authorities have led us down a rabbit hole and we’ve come out in Wonderland. A Wonderland where everything is backward, upside down and inside out.
But we know the things that are wrong and we can push back on those things. We want our freedom back again. Our positive and negative freedoms both. We don’t want the government telling us who we must and mustn’t hire, promote, fire, play golf with or bake cakes for. What we can or can’t say. We don’t want them telling us how to raise our kids or where they have to go to school. We don’t want them spying on us. We don’t want them giving away our money to foreigners or people who don’t want to work. We don’t want the government to reward companies for exporting jobs to China.
And we certainly don’t want them telling us that a man in a dress is a woman. Or that an eighty-pound four-foot eleven-inch woman is a Navy Seal. And we don’t want them to force our churches to recognize practices that contradict the teachings of their faith. We need a modern-day Moses to lead us back to the Promised Land and by promised land I mean sanity.
We need someone to step forward and have the courage to speak the truth. It’s time to tell the social justice scolds in the Media, the tech companies, the schools and the corporate HR departments that we don’t believe what they’re saying and we aren’t going to play by their rules anymore. It’s going to take a preacher. He’s going to have to preach the gospel of liberation. Liberation from all these petty tyrants who collectively have left us in chains. He’s got to stir the people up and give them hope and unite them. President Trump wants to be that man. I hope he succeeds. Because the need for such a hero is desperate. Someone must fill it or we will become a nation of serfs.
The surprising thing is that once the truth comes out it will be like a landslide. For decades people have been intimidated into silence, afraid of losing their jobs, their families, their freedom. But if someone just once speaks the truth from a big stage with a big megaphone the dam will burst and there will be a tidal wave of truth. Just like when Donald Trump was brave enough to say that illegal immigration wasn’t virtuous but a crime everybody was relieved to see that they weren’t alone. People will accept the Big Lie because they know the powerful are protecting it. But if once a brave voice shouts from the rooftops that the emperor has no clothes then everyone will laugh and put an end to the charade.
We need a champion and a leader and we need him now. Support President Trump in every way you can. He is our best hope to restore sanity to this nation.
Lou Dobbs interiews former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova and former Deputy Attorney General Victoria Toensing and they tell him that the IG’s report will reveal that high ranking DOJ figures submitted FISA applications that were based on information that they knew to be false.
Of course we’ve been waiting for this for years so it’s getting hard to believe it will ever appear but it’s interesting to hear insiders saying it.
Shaking off the lingering effects of Rocket Man wasn’t easy. But after enough refreshments were absorbed, we were ready to go forward. Believing they had sustained the worst shocks possible they were steeled to delve deeper into the less familiar works of William Shatner. They knew that I possessed one of the few copies of the 1984 made-for-tv movie, “Secrets of a Married Man” (SOAMM). A unanimous vote decided that it would be next.
For those who don’t know about this little known “treasure,” Shatner plays an engineer, Chris Jordan, working on an important project that will make or break his career. He has a wife and kids but the wife (played by former Momas and Papas singer Michelle Philips) has been so busy with her own career that she has sort of neglected her conjugal responsibilities toward Chris. So, what with the stress of the project and his neglected libido, Chris starts availing himself of the services of various prostitutes. This provides moments of Shatneresque hilarity. One scene shows Shatner in the shower when suddenly he looks down and must see some kind of rash or other skin problem on his genitals and almost has a stroke in his own special Shatner style. In the next scene he has gone to some doctor other than his family general practitioner and is relieved to learn it’s just an allergic reaction to soap or laundry detergent or “something else.” One particularly funny scene involves Shatner driving down the main drag with his wife in the car and all the hookers are calling out to him “Hi Chris” and Shatner is trying to explain to her how the name Chris is just hooker code for a new customer.
This goes on way too long until finally he meets the dream girl. Cybil Shepard is a high-priced hooker who drains Shatner of cash and even has him second mortgage his house to keep up with his weekly visits. But when the hooker’s pimp needs five thousand dollars Shatner’s whole life falls apart as his wife finds out what’s happening and leaves him and the police step in. We watched about forty percent of the show fast forwarding to the scenes where Shatner brought his unique acting abilities to bear on this stunning plot. But even that was too much. We finally shut it off.
When it was over the delegates were restless. They felt we had strayed too far from the core of the Shatner canon. While it was agreed that SOAMM contained some powerful and unique Shatner moments nevertheless the unheroic nature of the role separated it from the true spirit of Shatner. Even the hideousness of Rocket Man maintained the heroic nature of the Shatner persona. We had a to regroup. So, after reviling SOAMM and making fun of Cybil Shepard’s career that allowed her to play in this kind of movie we moved on. We decided to go back to the classics. And we picked for our next selection Space Seed. ShatnerKhan needed a little Khaaaaan!
But first we decided to take a break and restore ourselves with our choice of refreshments.
I cannot write in verse, for I am no poet. I cannot arrange the parts of speech with such art as to produce effects of light and shade, for I am no painter. Even by signs and gestures I cannot express my thoughts and feelings, for I am no dancer. But I can do so by means of sounds, for I am a musician.
