Dan Rather Plots Comeback,
With Assist From Robert Redford

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/10/2014 5:29:34 AM

I read this story three times to make sure it wasn’t a practical joke. But no: Robert Redford to Play Dan Rather in ‘Truth’. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and The Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather’s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted after Rather reported that George W. Bush had gotten to serve in the National Guard in order to avoid the Vietnam War. Cate Blanchett is attached to play Mapes, who was fired after the

This is a perfect example of the extremes a leftist will go through rather than admit they did something wrong.Rather got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and now has OCD to repair his image.Redford will need a 55 gal.drum of botox to make his face acceptable.

Yeah...like "The West Wing", "The American President" and many other shows, this silly movie will serve to placate the liberal mind with a fantasy version of events because the reality of life (i.e. abject failure of their ideology) cannot be processed in the leftist mind.

Redford has long been weird, too much weed? Cate Blankett should hesitate about starring in a lie of a movie. Would bring down her popularity with the common folk, in Hollywood, she would get an Oscar! Poor ole Bush, he goes about doing good things for veterans and wounded warriors, but can´t erase the bull´s eye from his back that the worthless lefties have put there!

Dan Rather the father of the msm "fake but accurate reporting" when it comes to Republicans and conservatives. He and Walter Cronkite were the beginning of the msm being used by the Democrat Party for propaganda which continues to this day. How I loathe the msm. No one will watch the movie but that is not the point. Propaganda isn´t meant to be profitable just ubiquitous.

I saw something online that was very funny. It had Hollyweird actors/actresses who have aged poorly. It had Mickey Rourke, Melanie Griffin and guess who. Poor old Robert Redford is just too long in the tooth and it shows. He wants to badly to play another doofus reporter who stuck it to a Republican President that you know he just jumped at the script. And as for the lying cretin Rather. He screwed himself with his fake but accurate story about President Bush´s time in the National Guard. He was the biggest LSM loser between Jennings and Brokejaw (that´s saying something). Remember how he tried to make GWHB look bad and the fact that he hated his time sharing the spotlight with Connie Povich, er Chung. I hope that the movie bombs big time as the two Rs need to take their politics and go away.

Gunga Dan and Crater Face. First of all, during the Vietnam Meatgrinder War there was a draft. If you could, you got into the National Guard. Nothing wrong with that, unlike going to Canada (and later getting pardoned by Carter). Some guys kept going to school (like Clinton, who actually did dodge the draft). How did Redford dodge the draft in the late 50´s and early 60´s when he was eligible?

In the 1960´s there was a 6-year service obligation. It was usually served as 2 years active duty, 4 years drilling reserves. Bush joined the Texas Air National Guard in 1968, and served on active duty until 1973 (do the math) and was Honorably discharged in 1974 (do the Math).

Mapes´ forged letter was purported to be a recall to active duty, which he ignored. Total falsification. The man served his obligation.

I know people who have had experiences with Robert Redford and they each consider him a total jerk. However, I can´t fault Redford for aging naturally. If he chose to forego the lifts and Botox, good for him. Just take a gander at Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdink, Wayne Newton. They look like male versions of Joan Rivers and Dolly Parton.

If he had enough of a drinking problem in college to cost him a baseball scholarship, maybe his habit continued. Few things other than illness will age one more than that.

Justice Dept. Opens New
Asylum Gate For Guatemalans
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article

The Department of Justice’s board of immigration appeals has decided to let Guatemalan women win asylum in the United States if they claim to be victims of domestic violence. The decision creates a huge new incentive for Guatemalan women to cross the U.S. border, because if their asylum claim is accepted, their children get U.S. citizenship, plus the use of federal health, education and retirement programs, regardless of their initial education and work skills. The new decision also means that many of the Guatemalan women who have already crossed the border this year have a new claim for asylum. “Under this breaking decision

As a society, over the past thousand-odd years, we have progressed a great deal. We no longer use medieval torture implements to punish heretics, confining them in small spaces and prodding them in the vital regions and pressing them with weights until their organs give way. Now we reserve these indignities for people who pay to travel on airplanes. The worst thing about air travel is that you cannot even complain about it without sounding like a hack comic from the 1980s. Anything is bearable so long as you can complain about it.

To the surprise of no one not on controlled substances, Rick Scott and Charlie Crist overcame weak primary opponents in a low turn-out election Tuesday to become the Republican and Democratic nominees for Florida governor. So it’s officially Mr. Sunshine against Mr. Clean (anyone who has seen Crist campaign and seen a picture of Scott will not question these sobriquets). Incumbent Scott was the choice of 88 percent of Republicans over two unknown vanity candidates. Florida Democrats demonstrated that they want the Florida governorship so badly — an office their party hasn’t held since 1994 — that they’re willing to run

Chris McDaniel´s first hurdle in his lawsuit to overturn his loss to Thad Cochran is a doozy: He may have waited too late to file it. As he worked for weeks building a case and campaigning that the election was stolen from him, McDaniel´s team said a 20-day deadline applies only to challenges of county and local elections, not a statewide U.S. Senate primary. Others, including the secretary of state, agreed with him. "Justice has no timetable," McDaniel said numerous times when questioned why it was taking so long to file his challenge of the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate. But

A new poll of the Georgia Senate race by WSB-TV/Landmark shows Democrat Michelle Nunn leading Republican David Perdue by 7 points, 47-40. If the Dems flip this seat, their chances of maintaining control of the Senate will receive a huge boost. So should Republicans be alarmed by this poll? Probably not. Two polls from just a week ago give Perdue the lead by 9 points (Survey USA) and 7 points (Insider Advantage). In fact, Perdue does so well in four of the five most recent polls that the Real Clear Politics average for the race stands at Perdue +4.2 even with the

President Barack Obama´s summer vacation off the Massachusetts coast has come to an end. The president returned to the White House late Sunday after spending two weeks with his family on the island of Martha´s Vineyard. What a break it turned out to be. His attempt at rest and relaxation was largely overtaken by events involving Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, including the videotaped execution of an American journalist they had been holding hostage, and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man. Obama broke from his vacation to deliver statements on Iraq,

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
