Jim Caviezel 0:00 (clip from giving the Braveheart speech)
"I see before me a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You've come to fight as free men and free men you are. What will you do without freedom? We'll fight. This man says, No, we'll run and we'll live. Yep, fight and you may die. Run and you'll live for at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you have been willing to trade all the years from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that you can take our lives, but you can never take our freedom. Every man dies. Not every man truly lives. You, you, you, you, WE must fight for that authentic freedom and live, my friends. By God, we must live and with the Holy Spirit as your shield and Christ as your sword, may you join St. Michael and all the angels in defending God and sending Lucifer and his henchmen straight right back to hell where they belong." [Applause]
Full Speech Begins
First of all, I'd like to thank Tim Ballard for having me play him in this film. And I'm really pleased that you could see this trailer. This film comes just at the right moment.
Trafficking, like abortion, interrupts God's plan. It is an unnatural evil obstruction of God's path. When God tells us to do something, we should never hesitate. And that's what I've always done. When I came to Hollywood, I tried to do the same thing, whether it was The Passion of the Christ or The Sound of Freedom. I go where He leads me.
Playing Jesus, you might say, was controversial. I should have known from the beginning. Mel Gibson said it was going to be very physical. But, I was an athlete, I could handle the physical. I thought the hard part would be learning the Aramaic, Hebrew, the Latin. Language turned out to be easy; the physical, nearly killed me.
I first walked into Jesus' shoes to carry the cross. It felt that it weighed at least 200 pounds.
From the very first day, the crowd rushed in around me. The guards hit me with whips. My arm was wedged under the heavy beam when someone yanked the cross in the opposite direction. My muscles wrenched and my shoulder separated. I fell to my knees, dropped the cross and buried my head in the sand. That tape now remains in the movie.
In the later part of the film, Jesus experiences a shoulder separation on the cross. I now know what that felt like. Every day I picked up that thing. It was like a penance. It ripped into my shoulder turning my flesh an angry red. And with each passing hour it got heavier. But, I didn't know the misery was just beginning.
Later when shooting the scourging scenes, there were three cameras surrounding me with mirrors in between. When the guards would hit the metal plank about a foot and a half away from my back, I would react as if they were landing. Mel Gibson told the guards to wind up and throw the whips like baseballs. So during one of the takes the whip went beyond the plank stinging me on my lower back. I thought I had an idea how those blows would feel. I had no idea. When that whip hit me it ripped the skin right off my back. I tasted two lashes from those whips.
But you know, I'm only an actor pretending that this is happening to me. It kind of helps you appreciate what the real thing was like, what Jesus actually gave for us continuously. For each one of us.
We could have shot that film in a studio, but the performance you saw would not have emerged. That is me up there. But it is actually me as an instrument. Anything good you saw there was the fasting, was the prayer, the daily masses. The performance was truly birthed in pain and through the pain. Isn't that odd? The pain is at times a blessing that it can refocus us, that it can redirect us. The discomfort, the pneumonia, the lung infection, the split shoulder, the raw flesh, and the lightning strike, and the two heart surgeries, including open heart, all forced me into the arms of my God, because I had nowhere else to go. That's when I found the performance that I knew I was unable to create.
People have asked me, What was it like to play that role? Two words: Unquenchable fire. There is no comfort nor peace. My constant prayer to God was that people would not see me, but only see this son of man, Jesus. [Applause]
I told my friend at one point that I didn't think I was the right guy to play Jesus. He looked at me and he goes, You know, Jim, God doesn't always choose the best, but he chose you. What the hell are you gonna do about it? [Laughter]
When you're up there on the cross, for five weeks, hour after hour, you think a lot. And as I hung there, I thought back at all the moments, all the twists of providence that brought me to the cross. 40,000 people come to Hollywood each year to try their luck. Less than 1% ever work. Why was I, Jim Caviezel, chosen? I remember being 19 years old sitting in a theater in Mount Vernon, Washington. The movie had ended and out there in the darkness. befriended only by my basketball in the adjacent seat, I had this sensation in my heart that made me think that I'm supposed to be an actor. It was a deep awareness of my vocation.
So reluctantly, I went forward. My rational sense intervened. I knew nothing about acting, no agents, no managers, hell, I can't even memorize to save my life. Yet I had this conviction, this charge, that directed me towards becoming an actor, and has directed me ever since.
Cut to the spring of 2001. I inexplicably get a call from Mel Gibson. Now my agent didn't call me. A manager didn't call. I didn't know Mel Gibson. And I wasn't politicking for the role because nobody knew it was happening. Mel Gibson wants me to play Jesus Christ. He wants the guy with the initials of JC who just happens to be 33 years of age to play Jesus Christ. Do you think that's a coincidence? [Applause]
But ladies and gentlemen, I made a choice. And it was a hard one. Many on my team, friends, acquaintances, encouraged me, many of them, to turn down this movie. But I made the choice to trust Jesus. But I didn't play him. He played me. For in our country today, we are only too happy to go with the flow. We want to avoid the hard choices. We have enshrined a freedom now where all choices are equal, no matter what the consequences are. But is that true freedom? Pope John Paul II in 1995, during a visit to Baltimore said, Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.
Ronald Reagan in 1964 said, This is a time for choosing. And his speech is as relevant today as it was then, maybe more so. I've made a few amendments of my own. I think it's pretty current now. But I don't think you'll mind.
There is not a man alive who would carelessly send another person's son to war. And that is the real issue with this campaign that makes all the other problems I've discussed academic. Unless we realize that we're in a war that must be won. Those of us who would trade our freedoms for the soup kitchen of the welfare state have told us that they have a utopian solution of peace without victory. They call their policy accommodation. And they say if we only avoid any direct confrontation with this enemy, he'll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All those who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. And yet they have the nerve to call it choice.
Well, perhaps there is a simple answer, not an easy answer, but a simple one: That you and I would have the courage to tell our elected officials that we want our national policy based on what we know in our hearts is morally right. Ladies and gentlemen, we cannot buy the security of our nation under God, our freedoms in Christ our Savior from the threat of the devil any longer.
By committing an act of immorality so great, is saying to millions and millions of little children now caught behind the iron curtain of sex trafficking and abortion, Give up your dreams of freedom now, because in order to save our own skins, we're just too willing to make a deal with your slave masters. And Alexander Hamilton said that any nation which can prefer disgrace to danger, is prepared for a master and deserves one.
Now let's set the record straight. There's no argument over the choice between peace and war. But there's only one guaranteed way you can have peace and you can have it in the next second. Surrender. Admittedly, there's a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement. And this is the specter our well-meaning Christian and Liberal friends refuse to face. Our priests, our pastors, and now sadly, even our Pope, that his policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives us no choice between peace and war. Only between fight and surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we will have to face the final demand, the final ultimatum. And what then?
When Satan has told his own, he knows what our answer is gonna be. He has told them that we're retreating out of the pressure of his Cold War and some day, when the time is right, to deliver his final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because you see, by then we will have been so weakened from within, spiritually, morally, economically. He believes this because from our side he's heard voices pleading for peace at any price, or BETTER RED THAN DEAD, or as one commentator put it, he'd rather live on his knees with his mask on than die on his feet. And therein lies the road to war. Because those voices don't speak for the rest of us. [Applause]
You and I know it and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for ... well, when did this begin? Just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the Patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard around the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our beloved dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis did not die in vain.
Where then lies the road to peace, you say? Well, it's a simple answer after all: That you and I have the courage to tell our enemies there is a price we will not pay, there is a point beyond which evil must not advance. [Applause] And this goes for our beautiful beloved Constitution as well. Just barely hanging in there by a lifeline. Do we even believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? You know, there's no coincidence why it's in that order. Because without your life you have no liberty. And without your life you have no happiness. That all men are created equal, ladies and gentlemen, not born equal. Winston Churchill said that the destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move throughout the world, we learned we are spirits, not animals. And he said there's something going on in time and space and beyond time and space which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.
My fellow Americans, you and I have a rendezvous with destiny. [Applause] We'll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth or we'll sentence them to take the last step into one thousand years of darkness. We're at war now with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind and it's a long climb from the swamp to the stars. And it's been said, if we lose this war, and in so doing, lose this great way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those of us that had the most to lose did the least to prevent it from happening. Well, I think it's high time now we asked ourselves if we still even know the freedoms that were intended for us by our founding fathers. Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom exists not to do what you like, but having the right to do what you ought. [Applause]
My fellow Christian warriors, set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation. Be saints. We weren't made to fit in. We were born to stand out. And that is the freedom that I wish for you. Freedom from sin, freedom from our weaknesses, freedom from the slavery that sin makes out of all of us. That is the freedom that is worth dying for.
Kind of reminds me of the words that Mel Gibson first intoned in his Academy Award-winning film Braveheart, when he said to his ragtag army and I say to you tonight,
I see before me a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You've come to fight as free men and free men you are. What will you do without freedom? Will you fight? This man says no. We'll run and we'll live. Yup. Fight and you may die. Run and you'll live, for at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you have been willing to trade all the years from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that you can take our lives but you can never take our freedom. Every man dies. Not every man truly lives. You, you, you, you, WE must fight for that authentic freedom and live, my friends. By God, we must live. And with the Holy Spirit as your shield and Christ as your sword, may you join Saint Michael and all the angels in defending God and sending Lucifer and his henchmen straight right back to hell where they belong. [Applause]
We are headed into the storm of all storms. Yes, the storm is upon us, but not without Jesus, our rudder. And in the words of Reagan, Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid.
God bless you. [Applause]

October is Glowing Red again this year, hotter than ever, as in Rigged for Red, Hunters Become the Hunted, Hunt for Red October; though we can't immediately SEE the hunt, it's not that obvious to the uninitiated if they look in the press or in television programming. Seems there is more of a red-hot self immolation of the enemy going on in the public than anything else, including those loud ubiquitous voices that mouth the enemy's lies and blasphemies incessantly, revealing who they are. Everyone is turning them off!
Juan O Savin talks with Spaceshot 76 about the divinely inspired reset of the world, something the enemy - Klaus Schwab and the Party of Davos - have vainly attempted to oppose with their own monstrously counterintuitive plan for their arrogantly named "Great Reset," a tragic joke that is failing so hard, you have to actually laugh THAT HARD at those clowns (but we do not laugh at those who sheep-like march into the arms of the monsters to their own deaths and self destruction, something that is purely tragic, for which we must ceaselessly pray to God for intercession.)
We have the video for the entire interview from Spaceshot 76's Rumble channel. First though, you will see that we have generated the transcript for the last 45 minutes of this 2 hour episode, in which 107 gets very focused on what we should expect in the next month or two of this Crucible Moment in World History.
Citizen Journalists, multimedia content creators are the reason we are here. Raising up your voice is central to our mission. We are a team, lifting each other by the variety of our talents and skills. The most important element in this is capturing and sharing the unique thoughts, wisdom and artforms that come to us as we ponder the world in our hearts. Seeing now clearly how badly the people who arrogate themselves into positions of power and influence over us, are bungling the job. They have never attempted to serve the people who are the source of their wealth and power, they only seek to exploit us.
Our years of experience on social media have clearly proven to us, that the so-called "average" men and women living on this planet, have in our daily musings the extraordinary wisdom of how this planet needs to be run--it's a big planet, each one of us contains valuable insights into the many aspects of the whole. We support each one of us upping our games expressing the unique gifts each of us contains.
Your qualifications, are your courage to be born on this planet, and make your way living a worthy life. We are here to support you putting your thoughts and ideas into words and other artforms. The technicalities are simply hurdles to overcome, the challenge is summoning the courage to say what is in our hearts and minds. We recognize that every soul born, simply by delving into our hearts, can contact Infinite Wisdom, the Holy Spirit. Maybe not so clearly at first for those with less experience exploring within, and certainly a lifetime of growing and developing our ability to put words to the wisdom we inherently contain.
We have spent the years developing this platform, to support you with the technical foundations for sharing your message with the world, including our Creators Guild, welcoming you into the precious and sacred community of like-minded spirits, bridging any gaps we each may have in our areas of competence. For example, no matter how good of a writer you are, trying to edit your own work is something like herding kittens, and it has been well said that working with HTML web page language, is like trying to paint on water. Far better to work in collaboration with fellow warriors for mutual benefit, rather than spending hours doing poorly at something it takes a person with the talent, minutes to pop it over the top!
