Sept. 4, 2012 -- quicklist: 1title: Chuck Norris Warns of '1,000 Years of Darkness' If Obama Re-Elected text: Action film actor and martial artist Chuck Norris issued a grave warning to America's voters this week: Head to the ballot box, or sentence your children to "1,000 years of darkness."

Norris, along with his wife Gena, filmed a two-minute video urging people to "unite for God and country" by casting their ballots against Obama this November.

"Our great country and freedom are under attack," Norris says in the video, first posted to World Net Daily. "We are at a tipping point and quite possibly our country as we know it could be lost forever if we don't change the course our country is headed."

Quoting former President Reagan, Gena Norris warns that the country has a "rendezvous with destiny."

"We will preserve for our children this last best hope for man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into 1,000 years of darkness," she said, quoting one of Reagan's 1964 speeches. "If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

While the couple never mentioned any candidates by name in the video, Norris was a strong supporter of former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich during the Republican primary race.

In an equally apocalyptic op-ed in January, Norris cautioned that "civilization is on the brink."

"We need a veteran of political war who has already fought Goliath, because he will be facing Goliath's bigger brother," Norris wrote in the WND editorial, adding that Gingrich "is the best man left on the battlefield who is able to outwit, outplay and outlast Obama and his campaign machine."

quicklist: 1title:Clint Eastwood Interviews Empty Chair, Calling It President Obamatext:Clint Eastwood, legendary actor and director, went on the ultimate rant towards President Obama on the last night of the 2012 Republican National Convention. Clintwood, who pretended to interview an empty chair on the national stage that he addressed as "President Obama" ranted,

"I got Mr. Obama sitting here and I was gonna ask him a couple questions," Eastwood said as he gestured toward the empty bar stool.

"Mr. President, how do you handle promises you made when you were running for election?" he asked. "What do you say to people?"

But Eastwood, who cut off the "interviewee" said "I'm not gonna shut up. It's my turn."

And then, again, to the chair he asked, "What do you want me to tell Mr. Romney?"

"I can't tell him to do that," Eastwood responded in front of the crowd of delegates at the RNC. "He can't do that to himself. You're absolutely crazy. You're getting as bad as Biden!"


quicklist:1title:Hank Williams Jr. Tells Crowd Obama Is 'a Muslim' Who 'Hates the Military'text: Controversial country star Hank Williams Jr., who caused a stir last year when he compared Barack Obama to Hitler, is at it again.

At the Iowa State Fair, Williams bashed Obama to a crowd saying, "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!"

To make his anti-Obama message known, Williams recently released a 10-disc album titled "Old School, New Rules." There is no subtlety in the country star's politically charged song lyrics that blatantly boast "Hey Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you so you'll know where to go."
