Trump´s call to soldier´s family
´one of the biggest c**k-ups
on the planet Earth´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Brandon Carter

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/22/2017 9:28:02 AM

Actor Tom Hanks is blasting President Trump for his handling of a phone call to the widow of a fallen U.S. soldier, calling it “one of the biggest c**k-ups on the planet Earth.” "I´m only knowing what I read in the newspapers and what have you, and it just seems like it´s one of the biggest c**k-ups on the planet Earth, if you ask me," Hanks said in an interview with CNN. "This is a tragedy of the utmost consequence and it goes much longer beyond who´s going to come out on top of the news story. I think it´s

Comments:
I´m really sick of these jack asses. That´s worse than allowing Hillary Clinton to get away with major crimes, corruption of the IRS and every other agency, the deal with Iran, releasing five high ranking Taliban, etc. I could go on and on and on. This is coming from a guy who well knew the predilections of the filthy, disgusting, vile Harvey Weinstein and did absolutely NOTHING. Just shut up and act.

Contd. This is precisely the reason I will not watch him and the rest of his ilk ever again. They make me sick. I´ll watch old movies on TMC, hilarious reruns of Frasier and Johnny Carson or not watch any at all.

Libs like Hanks are so articulate. Their limited vocabulary leaves then unable to express themselves with any originality. Hanks is clearly an educated, articulate sort.

The other three phone calls were to relatives of the white men KIA. Only the one to black parent with a black leftist congressperson made the news. Tom Hanks is part and parcel of the left that hates PT and all PT´s supporters. IOW his opinion means zilch.

When morons like Hanks say intelligent or insightful words thought up and written down by someone else, we imagine that they are the insightful and intelligent person who they are pretending to be. In reality, most are shallow, foolish meat puppets who cannot think rationally and only function on an emotional plane. This is why they are actors and actresses, because their brains function emotionally.

They are exactly wrong for any sort of a rational discussion - they do not and cannot use logic and rational thought as a tool to understand the world. So they always get everything wrong.

Ignore the meat puppet.

When my nephew was KIA, Obama sent a form letter signed by his machine. My brother dropped it directly into the trash. Trump cares, Obama did not.

If the Left had their way, we would have some form of authoritarian government, that would control our every thought, word and deed (which shows just how really stupid they are).

Tom is like many of the other 1%´rs who have more than enough money to live however they want. Morality is not mandatory for THEM to sustain life, because they have enough money to cover a multitude of "sins". Yet they don´t want to appear to be immoral reprobates to their fans and to the public, so they embrace a form of morality without actually being moral (according to God´s standards). Political Correctness is one of those moral systems that is available to them that makes them feel moral and good about themselves, yet is not actually moral. They can embrace "rights", "equality" and "fairness", then live however they want and appear to be moral, to themselves and to others.

But that comes into conflict with reality and with the rest of the nation where individuals must live moral lives if their personal freedom and liberty is to be sustained. Our nation, can´t remain free, stable, prosperous and secure unless we as individuals are moral and police ourselves, instead of having the government police us. It´s called "self-governing", and is something people seem to know little about these days.

It´s those people who are virtuous, who restrict themselves and try to live moral lives, who are keeping freedom and liberty and this nation alive; not people like Tom Hanks and his ilk.

Re: Post 14

Three or four days before the 2012 Presidential Election, we received a certificate with the Presidential Seal, auto-penned by Obama, honoring our father who was a WWII veteran. I think it came from the VA, but am not sure. I thought the certificate was an insult, and have no recollection of a Republican President dong a comparable "campaign" mailing.

Tom has ever been a soldier but he has played one in the movies. In his world he´s practically got 5 stars. In Liberaland, you´d better never suggest that a plantation dweller met misfortune by following their own thoughts and consciences. They are only useful to the libs
as hapless Stepin Fetchits who have no nobility of spirit. And for a Hollywood guy to talk about c**k -ups... perhaps, after Weinstein he might want to find a different description for ineptitude.

So, like all LIE-berals, he only bases his beliefs on "feelings".

Not a peep out of his big mouth then but now it´s all Hollyweird hands on deck.

The FBI “failed to preserve” five months worth of text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the two FBI employees who made pro-Clinton and anti-Trump comments while working on the Clinton email and the Russia collusion investigations. The disclosure was made Friday in a letter sent by the Justice Department to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC). “The Department wants to bring to your attention that the FBI’s technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page,” Stephen Boyd, the assistant attorney

Journalists at The Los Angeles Times voted overwhelmingly to form a union despite aggressive opposition from the paper’s management team, reversing more than a century of anti-union sentiment at one of the biggest newspapers in the country. Shortly after the final vote count was announced on Friday, The Times’s parent company said that the newspaper’s publisher, Ross Levinsohn, was taking an unpaid leave of absence while a law firm investigated allegations of coarse workplace behavior while he was employed by other companies. The newsroom vote took place on Jan. 4 and the final count showed that out of the 292

´Piece of Garbage´: Michael Dukakis

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

The National Security Agency destroyed surveillance data it pledged to preserve in connection with pending lawsuits and apparently never took some of the steps it told a federal court it had taken to make sure the information wasn’t destroyed, according to recent court filings. Word of the NSA’s foul-up is emerging just as Congress has extended for six years the legal authority the agency uses for much of its surveillance work conducted through U.S. internet providers and tech firms. President Donald Trump signed that measure into law Friday. Since 2007, the NSA has been under court orders to preserve data

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to

Jeff Zucker, the former head of NBCUniversal and current leader of Time Warner’s CNN, has emerged as a surprise candidate to lead Walt Disney’s ESPN. Rumors began circulating this week in media circles that the TV executive who first rose to greater renown by boosting the fortunes of NBC’s “Today” show could be in consideration to replace John Skipper at Disney’s massive sports-media juggernaut. Skipper left ESPN late last year, citing a substance-addiction problem. An ESPN spokesman declined to comment, and spokespersons for CNN, Time Warner and its Turner cable-TV unit did not respond to queries seeking comment. Disney CEO Robert Iger

NEW YORK — Motorists would have to shell out $11.52 to drive into the busiest parts of Manhattan under a new proposal floated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ease traffic congestion and raise vital funds for mass transit. Trucks would pay even more — $25.34 — while taxi cabs, Uber rides and for-hire vehicles would be charged between $2 and $5 per ride. The pricing zone would cover Manhattan south of 60th Street. The idea, called “congestion pricing,” involves using electronic tolling to charge vehicles for entering certain parts of town during especially busy times. The proposal is expected to face stiff

Rene Boucher, Sen. Rand Paul’s neighbor, was charged with assaulting a member of Congress for tackling Paul to the ground after witnessing him stack brush onto a pile in November. The charge is a felony under federal law, and Boucher, 58, faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana announced Friday. “Assaulting a member of Congress is an offense we take very seriously,” Josh Minkler, the U.S. attorney, said. Boucher allegedly tackled Paul, R-Ky., while he was mowing his lawn, wearing headphones. Boucher, a retired anesthesiologist, allegedly saw Paul

An executive vice president from the news publication The Hill contacted the office of former President Bill Clinton with an offer for Clinton to be financially compensated as part of a new video series for the outlet, according to a new report. Typically, mainstream media outlets are prohibited from paying sources for interviews due to ethical concerns. Clinton’s office declined the offer from John Solomon, the executive vice president of digital video at The Hill, the Washington Post reported Friday. Solomon told Clinton’s office that he was interested in having the video series explore a variety of topics in contemporary

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and

The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe.

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,

According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump.

The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.

Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
