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.

Tom Hanks was off my radar a long time ago ...I could care less what he says. I will never watch him again in anything.

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".

While this may be a winner for the ghetto rat Congresswoman in her low information district, but when it really counts during the 2020 election it will be a big loser for the liberal and socialist Democrats, even worse then before the last election, when they featured the Muslim immigration lawyer Mr Khan at their National Convention to lunch a bogus politically charged attack on then Republican candidate Trump.

Let alone something political. I haven´t watched a movie that this fool´s been in since Cast Away. I would love to bump into(rally hard) Hanks and ask him where the h**l was he when Obola showed up with cameras at Dover AFB when relatives of the slain SEAL Team 6 Extortion 17 operators asked him not to. Not a peep out of his big mouth then but now it´s all Hollyweird hands on deck.

Country music singer Neal McCoy takes a jab at former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others who protested the national anthem by taking a knee in his newest single he debuted last week. The song, “Take a Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take a Knee),” was performed in front of a small audience on Oct. 8th and shared online as a Facebook Live video, which has since gone viral. (Snip) The song, which McCoy notes was written by a friend of his, cites the armed forces as a reason why he proudly stands for the national anthem. “I’ve

Ohio State Supreme Court Justice Bill O´Neill is something of an eccentric character. After repeated unsuccessful campaigns for Congress and for Ohio´s Supreme Court, the Democrat shocked everyone when he won his current seat in 2012. He knocked off a Republican incumbent despite promising to take no campaign contributions, in part thanks to backlash against a scorched-earth Republican campaign ad against him, accusing him of expressing sympathy for rapists. Speaking of which, O´Neill is in the news again today for his um...unorthodox response to the current controversy over alleged sexual harassment or assault by Minnesota Sen.

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she

NFL steps into politics, fights tax cut

The NFL has come out against House Republicans’ tax cut bill, putting the league out on a political limb even as it deals with the fallout from national anthem protests. Other big pro sports leagues are staying out of the fight, but a spokesman for the National Football League said teams don’t want to lose a special tax break that allows them to use tax-free bonds to build stadiums. The NFL says it deserves the break because new stadiums create jobs. “You can look around the country and see the economic development that’s generated from some of these stadiums,” Joe Lockhart, a former

One of the Clinton family’s most aggressive defenders lashed out overnight at a Democratic senator who said Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his affair with Monica Lewinsky. “Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual b***job. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand? Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat.

As the breaking story of Al Franken‘s lewd behavior toward Leeann Tweeden during a USO tour in 2006 was developing Thursday, MSNBC’s Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt reported to viewers that Franken was “not actually groping” Tweeden in the famous photo that shook the political and media landscape. (Snip) Not only is this “reporting” inaccurate, Hunt seems to present a political argument that even Franken is not making in his own defense. “Potentially — not actually groping, but mock-groping” is how Hunt, the reporter delivered the news. How does she know this? What facts have been presented to support this? I

The terror-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations and the city of New York have teamed to launch a far-Left “social justice” project called “AMPLIFY” (Advancing the Front Lines of Social Justice), hoping to promote awareness for the fringe issues that motivate the leftist-Islamist alliance.

CAIR was founded in 1994 by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, with the goal of creating a support network in the United States for the

Washington’s Museum of the Bible will be opening its doors to visitors this weekend. Privately funded by Steve Green, the evangelical owner of the arts and crafts retail chain of Hobby Lobby, the $500 million museum will feature a huge array of artifacts both from Green’s private collection and from traveling exhibits from around the world. The museum, which its website says aims to engage visitors with the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible, is opening amid some controversy after Green settled a $3 million case involving smuggling artifacts earlier this year. But the Museum of the Bible´s opening is also hotly

Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) admonished Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) for accusing Republicans of writing the tax bill "for the rich" at a late night hearing on amendments and markups. "With all due respect, I get sick and tired of the rich getting richer," Brown said in a diatribe against Republicans. "I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin´ career for people who don´t have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I´m doing it for the rich.

When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she

NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?" Trump

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that the Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) after his bribery and corruption trial ended in a mistrial. “Because of the seriousness of these charges, I am calling on the Senate Ethics committee to immediately investigate Senator Menendez’s actions which led to his indictment," McConnell said in a statement. He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history."

The Department of Justice will soon commence an investigation to determine whether there should be an investigation (you read that nonsense correctly) of a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation and a company called Uranium One. It appears that FBI decisions made during the time that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for espionage will also be investigated to see whether there should be an investigation to determine whether she was properly investigated. (Again, you read that nonsense correctly.) Only the government can relate nonsense with a straight face. Here is the back story. When President Donald Trump fired FBI Director Jim Comey last

WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those

(Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was
