Add another actor to the list. Chris Noth, currently starring in “The Good Wife,” played Detective Mike Logan on “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” and “Mr. Big” on “Sex and the City.” Noth has now outed himself — as yet another liberal. Worse, his moronic anti-GOP, anti-tea party comments put him into the category of “brain dead” Hollywood liberal, to use an expression from playwright David Mamet. Noth, unhappy with the partial government shutdown, tweeted this thoughtful analysis: “Highest level of racism was shown yesterday when Republicans forced a shutdown of our government. Mostly because our
Comments: I used to watch the Good Wife because it was a really good show, that is until their blatant leftism completely took over and all they did was bash anything conservative. It wasn´t even subtle. I will never understand why these morons can´t understand they will drive away half of their audience because of this behavior. Just shut up and act.
It´s not really his fault, he was pretty much raised to be brain-dead...from his mini-bio at IMDB.com:
Chris Noth was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on 13 November 1954. In his youth, he traveled and lived in England, Yugoslavia and Spain, but never stayed in the same place for long. His mother, Jeanne Parr, was a CBS news reporter. Chris studied with Sanford Meisner before graduating from the Yale School of Drama. He continues to build upon a versatile career in film, television and on stage.
I could care less what a man who memorizes other people´s words and then says them says. He wears make up to work and probably all the time. Not someone I listen to. Creepy if you think about it. These celebrities really let their PR go to their heads. They actually believe all of the hogwash put out about them and think that we do to. NOT!
Any time Mr. Noth wants to horse whip me, a Tea Party Conservative who is on the right side of history, I will encourage him to try. And living not far from Hollywood, I have no problem telling him that to his face should I "run into him".
I will warn him however, that if he attempts such a thing, he´ll need a team of surgeons to remove said horsewhip from the orifice I jam it into.
I remember watching Robert DeNiro (and I love his acting) being interviewed by Larry King a few years back. DeNiro had some flack sitting with him, and, basically, I remember DeNiro deferring to his flack to answer King´s questions, which made sense to me because any time DeNiro responded to Larry´s questions, I was reminded of what Marlon Brando said about actors.
#3, your comment surprised me. Surely you have noticed mixed marriages among Conservatives. Justice Thomas and his wife, Ginni are one of the most prominent and respected of couples who are conservative. I doubt you, or anyone, would question the conservatism of either of them.
I hope, and don´t really believe that you meant your comment to be insulting, or hurtful, to the many Conservatives who are black - some of whom post, or read, here. But, it could be taken that way as worded.
Hollyweird gets WH talking points too! I tweeted a response to several actors who encouraged their fan bases to "Get Covered". I simply asked if they signed up & to know what they ask their do. Twitter spanked me by shutting me down for 4 hours... & threatened to ban me 4ever.
Only GaGa replied with "Yes I signed up & it´s great!"
Attacking other posters by number or name is forbidden on this site. It might would be wise for posters to keep their personal opinions (attacks) of other posters to themselves. You know absolutely nothing about me, my background, experiences or soul that gives you the right to judge me based upon my comments. Please keep your self-righteous judgements to yourself.
I´m sorry that you took my post as an attack. It was not intended as such. I usually agree with posts of yours that I have read and this comment was truly a surprise to me.
Of course, each of us is entitled to our opinion and the hostess here is gracious to allow us to post them. Just wanted to know if that was actually the impression that you intended to leave. I´ll take your response as a yes and move on.
#20 you werent attacked. A legitimate request for you to defend your assertion in #3 was made and you chose to get all huffy. I had the exact same question they had. Your statement, IMHO, was out of line.
I see you still don´t get it--and now others are joining the attack by targeting my posts by number. This is not allowed. Nothing in my post is untrue--it is a fact that the actor is married to an African American and obviously, he is a lib Obama supporter (read the article!). Implying I am racist is absurd and unfair and again, you know nothing about me, including my race. I didn´t ´defend´ myself previously because chatting is not allowed, either, which I am reluctantly forced to do now because you have some sort of issue with me. I´ve said my piece and will not break the rules any further. Have a lovely day.
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
After advising consumers to steer clear of Healthcare.gov in October, Consumer Reports health care expert Nancy Metcalf told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Tuesday morning that the federal health care exchange website was improved enough following the Obama administration’s frantic month of repairs that users could confidently use it. Consumer Reports had earlier told its readers not to even bother with the website through the first month, a provisional verdict it later said had been misrepresented. “Now we’re saying, ‘it’s time,’” Metcalf said, in particular praising the new window-shopping function, in which users can peruse health plans without registering with the site.
House Speaker John A. Boehner has hired a longtime advocate of legalizing illegal immigrants to be his immigration policy adviser, encouraging immigration activists but angering those who want to see a crackdown and who say Mr. Boehner’s move signals he still wants an “amnesty” bill to pass. Rebecca Tallent, whom Mr. Boehner’s office confirmed it was hiring, worked on immigration issues for Sen. John McCain and former Rep. Jim Kolbe. Both of those Arizona Republicans led the push for legalization within the GOP. Ms. Tallent will leave her job as immigration policy director at the Bipartisan Policy Center to start in
CNN´s analyst LZ Granderson has defended President Obama´s outright lies about Obamacare with some of the most insidious, cynical logic seen in recent years. According to Granderson, the American people have rationalized the health insurance lies fed to them by Obama by rationalizing them this way: "We can deal with the lies that President Obama tells us because we believe in his heart, he has the best interest for the American people." To his credit, Granderson doesn´t try to insult the CNN audience, or host Rosa Flores, by pretending Obama didn´t lie. Jay Carney, President Obama and most of the
Ed Rendell is the former Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania, a former DNC Chairman, and a longtime Clinton acolyte. He was on Team Hillary in 2008 and will likely feature prominently on her 2016 bandwagon, too. His biting commentary on Obamacare´s catastrophic roll-out, therefore, is noteworthy for two reasons: First, it´s a partisan Democrat criticizing the president´s handling of his signature domestic initiative in unusually harsh terms. And second, it´s a preview of how Team Hillary plans to cleanse itself of the Obamacare stench. Via MSNBC´s Morning Joe:
Hypocrisy and double standards are two things that disgust and infuriate all Americans, regardless of where they fall on the ideological spectrum. Unfortunately, these qualities are far too prevalent in our political culture today, and are prime reasons why Washington and the politicians that work there are held in such low regard. Nowhere is this more evident than in the implementation and implosion of ObamaCare. During the debate over the deeply flawed bill in 2009 and 2010, voters were repeatedly assured by President Obama and his congressional allies that everyone who liked their current health care plan would be able to keep it.
Detroit´s historic bankruptcy will move forward after a judge ruled Tuesday that the financially crumbling city is eligible to shed billions in debt. Judge Steven Rhodes turned down objections from unions, pension funds and retirees, which all stand to lose big under any plan to address Detroit´s long-term liabilities. The decision Tuesday was long-awaited, and clears the way for the city to proceed in the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. "This once proud and prosperous city can´t pay its debts. It´s insolvent. It´s eligible for bankruptcy," Rhodes said in announcing his decision. "At the same time, it also has
Fans of economic policy may recall that during one of the many recent debt ceiling showdowns, the idea to mint a trillion-dollar platinum coin came to the fore. It turns out that the Obama administration took the idea seriously enough to have the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel draft memos pertaining to its legality, a fact belied by the White House’s out-of-hand dismissal of the option in January. In response to the Huffington Post’s Freedom of Information Act request, the OLC confirmed that memos about the legality of minting a high-value platinum coin had been written since Obama took
Feminist icon Gloria Steinem has received America’s highest honor. President Obama bestowed upon Steinem the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In so doing, he honored the work of not only Steinem but Margaret Sanger, liberalism’s iconic racial eugenicist. Celebrating her award at the National Press Club, Steinem said she hoped Obama’s action would be “honoring the work of Margaret Sanger.” It indeed has done just that. Margaret Sanger longed for a more enlightened time when birth control would be (as she put it) “part of the regular welfare service of the government.” In this, she was inspired by Stalin’s Soviet Union — literally.
Rep. Mike Rogers provides a cheery thought on personal security as the White House gears up to sell ObamaCare all over again. Last night, he told Greta van Susteren that data security on Healthcare.gov didn’t even meet “minimal standards” for the industry. In terms of the “private-sector velocity and efficiency” claimed by the Obama administration over the last couple of days, Rogers says that experts warned him that they would be sued out of business if they rolled out a website with this many security gaps. It’s so bad, Rogers warns, that the White House refused to brief Congress on the
Veteran Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel is going to seek re-election to a 23rd term to Congress next year, The Post has learned. Rangel, 83, is expected to make an announcement “sooner rather than later,” said Manhattan Democratic Chairman and Harlem Assemblyman Keith Wright. “Congressman Rangel is running. You can’t keep the old war horse down,” said Wright, adding, “I’m with him all the way.” Despite being censured for ethics violations in 2010, Rangel won the Democratic primary in a squeaker in 2012, beating back a strong challenge from state Sen. Adriano Espaillat. The new 13th Congressional District is majority Latino.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in a fight to retain his Kentucky Senate seat, is getting a boost from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the form of a new ad playing up the Republican´s efforts to save the state´s coal industry that´s under fire from President Obama´s environmental regulators. The Chamber on Monday said the ad is part of its voter education campaign. It is the first ad for a friendly senator up for election in 2014. “The people of Kentucky have a true conservative champion for American free enterprise in Senator Mitch McConnell. McConnell has a 92 percent lifetime score
Jeffrey P. Bezos has never been known for thinking small. And in an interview aired Sunday on CBS´s "60 Minutes," he outlined his latest plan for revolutionizing the retail industry: using drones to deliver packages in as little as 30 minutes. Declaring himself an "optimist," the Amazon.com founder and chief executive predicted the technology could be brought to market in as little as five years. This is more than a theoretical idea. Bezos showed CBS´s Charlie Rose a working prototype of an eight-rotor helicopter drone called an "octocopter." Emblazoned with "Amazon Prime Air," the flying robot has a claw at
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
In the US we are used to abortion advocates claiming that the risk of elective abortion is relatively trivial, and major medical organizations denying any link between abortion and breast cancer. Now a powerful new study from China published last week by Yubei Huang and colleagues suggests otherwise. The article, a meta-analysis pooling 36 studies from 14 provinces in China, showed that abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by 44% with one abortion, and 76% and 89% with two and three abortions. This new article is another example of the recent excellent scholarship on abortion in peer-reviewed journals coming out
MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Remembering the plot of a short story is no longer good enough in teacher Amy Lawson´s fifth-grade classroom. Today´s students are being asked to think more critically. For example, what might a character say in an email to a friend? "It´s hard. But you can handle this," Lawson tells them. Welcome to a classroom using the Common Core State Standards, one of the most politicized and misunderstood changes in education for students and their teachers in kindergarten through high school. In 45 states and the District of Columbia, Lawson and and other teachers are starting to use the standards
Gov. Chris Christie’s “bizarre behavior’’ in refusing to say he’ll support a possible GOP challenger to Gov. Cuomo next year could derail his chances to become president, state and national GOP insiders have told The Post. “Christie already has a problem with many Republicans refusing to forgive him because of his embrace of [President] Obama and his socially liberal policies,’’ said a nationally prominent GOP operative. “But this bizarre behavior in suggesting he won’t help a Republican defeat a Democratic governor, and a Cuomo no less, could finish off his chances of becoming his party’s nominee for president in 2016,’’ the
Senior officials in the White House have said that Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is desperate and weak,” in reaction to Netanyahu´s remonstrations against the deal struck with Iran over its nuclear weapons program. Israeli television Channel 10 quoted the officials as saying “His pronouncements show a lack of self-confidence,” in an unusually harsh personal attack on Netanyahu. “We are not perturbed by his vocal opposition.”
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
A push by activists to ease the 30-year-old blanket ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men faces a key test this week as a federal panel hears results of the latest research. The findings will be released amid growing pressure from politicians and advocates, including college students, to change the policy. Critics say the ban is a hangover from the early, fear-filled days of AIDS, stigmatizing gay men and ignoring advances in treatment and detection in the decades since. Supporters of the policy say politics, not science, is driving the proposed change, which would heighten the risk of
President Obama completed an ambitious fundraising schedule for Democrats in November, but many of the congressional candidates he is trying to help are finding their election prospects next year imperiled by the president’s faulty health care law. Several polls in the past week have shown congressional Republicans pulling even or slightly ahead of Democrats in generic balloting for the midterm elections, a swing of at least 10 percentage points in less than a month. Pollsters attribute the seismic shift to the series of glaring flaws in Obamacare, most of which came to the public’s attention after the program’s rollout Oct.
Former Obama advisor David Plouffe appeared on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning and predicted that President Barack Obama’s approval rating would rise over the next few months, following the increasing functionality of the Affordable Care Act. “This has been a tough task,” Plouffe said. “It’s not just health care. The shutdown affected everybody’s confidence in government. But let’s fast-forward to the State of the Union and the months after that. Health care working better, a lot of people signing up. The economy continuing to strengthen. Hopefully no Washington shutdowns.
So the troubled site apparently now works 90 percent of the time. That should be good news for Obama—but the question is whether Obamacare will get the mass enrollment it needs. HealthCare.gov finally works. Now people just need to use it. The error-plagued website, which was supposed to be the portal for Americans seeking to buy health insurance through the exchanges set up by the Affordable Care Act, is finally approaching basic functionality two months after it went online. In a report released Sunday, the Department of Health and Human Services breathlessly announced that the website now functions more than 90 percent of
