Robert De Niro Suggests The President Should Have Fecal Matter Thrown at Him

The Hollywood legend’s tough guy act is moving from the big screen to The Beltway this week.

Published

Politicly disagreements and the diversity of opinion are two of the cornerstones of the American style of democracy.

We are a nation of unprecedented freedom, with an elective system of government meant to be a shining beacon of hope to the rest of the world.  The ultimate power of the people lies within our liberty, and our ability to tell our fellow Americans exactly how we feel about any particular political figure or ideology.

Of course, we are to be judged on our tact and our class when it comes to sharing these opinions, and an uncouth comment or inexcusable assertion says more about the speaker than the subject in this regard.

That’s why Robert De Niro is catching so much flak this week, after taking his tough guy act from the big screen to The Beltway.

Robert De Niro said Friday that he’d like to see President Trump have a “bag of s—” thrown in his face.

“Hit him right in the face like that and let the picture go all over the world,” De Niro told liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on his podcast.

He added that the Democratic nominee has to “confront him and put him in his place because the people have to see that, to see him be humiliated.”

This is far from the first time that De Niro has suggested that something untoward should happen to the Commander in Chief, with the Hollywood legend repeatedly suggesting that he himself would like to employ violence against Donald Trump.

WATCH: President Trump and CNN’s Jim Acosta Get Heated at Presser in India

This isn’t the first time that Trump and Acosta have tangled, and it certainly won’t be the last.

Published

on

President Trump must feel a bit like a parent whose children are misbehaving at a dinner party hosted by his acquaintances.

That’s because, while on a trip to India, the Commander in Chief has been forced to reprimand CNN’s Jim Acosta in front of the entire world, metaphorically dragging the reporter outside by his ear.

Acosta asked Trump if he would accept foreign interference in the upcoming election and how he could justify replacing Joseph Maguire as acting director of national intelligence.

The president didn’t appreciate the two-part question.

“First of all, I want no help from any country, and I haven’t been given help from any country,” Trump answered before referencing a report that CNN had to walk back on Sunday. “If you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way. Didn’t they apologize for the fact that they said certain things that weren’t true? Tell me, what was their apology yesterday? What did they say?”

Acosta fired back, “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes.”

That simply set the President off.

“Your record is so bad that you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You have probably the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said as Acosta attempted to interrupt.

Video of the incident was difficult to watch.

Acosta briefly had his press credentials yanked by the White House months ago after getting into an altercation with a female White House aide who was looking to retrieve a microphone from the reporter at the direction of the President.

‘I Still Believe’: Christian Movie Trailer Earns 8.5 Million Views Before Film Even Opens

The latest budding hit is the upcoming film, ‘I Still Believe,’ which earned 8.5 million views of its trailer before the movie has even hit theaters.

Published

Christian movies have been growing in influence and success, and the latest budding hit is the upcoming film, I Still Believe, which has earned 8.5 million views of its trailer before the movie has even hit theaters.

Directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin and distributed by Lionsgate, the movie features the love story of award-winning Christian singer Jeremy Camp and his first wife, Melissa. The cast includes KJ Apa, Britt Robertson, Shania Twain, and Gary Sinise.

The film does not hit theaters until March 13, but the YouTube trailer has already earned a staggering 8.5 million views.

The huge number of views has brought the attention of the media.

Forbes senior contributor Scott Mendelson, for instance, calls the film a “special case.”

“Even in a time when more movies get the ‘IMAX Experience,’ I Still Believe qualifies as a special case,” Mendelson wrote February 11.

Mendelson is calling the film “the next big faith-based hit.”

Riverdale star KJ Apa plays the title role of Jeremy Camp, and fiancée Melissa is played by actress Britt Robertson.

“Earlier we had some tough news,” the Camp character tells a packed auditorium from the stage in the trailer. “Can we do something special for the most special person in my life tonight? Can we pray for her?”

Camp tells his audience that the “tough news” is that Melissa has ovarian cancer.

Camp’s parents (Shania Twain, and Gary Sinise), question his decision to marry Melissa due to her cancer diagnosis Camp replies saying, “I’m supposed to be with her. I can’t explain it, I just know that.”

“I want you to know that whatever this is, and wherever it takes us, that I’m with you every step, every moment, I’m with you,” he tells his love in the trailer. “I’m in.”

Co-director Andrew Erwin recently told Christian Headlines that thinks the film will reach a broader audience than just Christian fans.

“We’re trying to give the church a tool that they can use to reach their community,” he said. “So it’s definitely still engaging the church – but for a different purpose. It’s to reach out beyond the church walls.”

Half a dozen other mainstream media outlets have also written about the movie, noting the film’s expectations for success, Townhall reported.

Hate Hoaxer Jussie Smollett Faces Six New Indictments in Chicago

Chicago Police aren’t done with Jussie Smollett just yet…

Published

on

There are few things in this world that are more despicable than racism.  In America, these heinous beliefs are all the more out-of-place thanks to our national belief that all are created equal.

You can’t have any real freedom without equality, making bigotry of any sort a stain on our great nation.

Even worse than racism itself are the attempts to weaponize this ugly reality for personal gain.  This exploitation of evil is simply inexcusable, as television actor Jussie Smollett learned several months ago.

Smollett alleged that he was the victim of a horrendous, racially-motivated assault on the street of Chicago, where two men allegedly hurled ethnic and sexual slurs at him while brandishing a noose and spouting some suspiciously-generic political epithets.  Chicago Police soon discovered that Smollett had hoaxed the entire incident in order to gain notoriety, which sparked a righteous outrage.  That anger grew after the charges against Smollett were dropped by a well-connected DA.

The Chicago Police Department was rightfully furious about Smollett’s surprise vindication, and promptly sued the actor for $130,000 – a figure said to represent the amount of resources wasted on the hoax.

And that’s not the end of the trouble that Smollett faces, either.

Television actor Jussie Smollett will be arraigned Monday on a six-count indictment charging him with falsely reporting that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago home.

Smollett, 37, was expected to plead not guilty to felony charges of disorderly conduct during his appearance in Cook County Circuit Court a day after Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared that he should be should be “held accountable” for falsely reporting a crime.

Smollett believed that the fame he would have gained by surviving the purported “hate crime” would have allowed him to request a pay increase in Hollywood, making the entire fiasco all the more disturbing.

LA Times Says Trump’s Taste in Movies is Now ‘Racist’

Well this is just silly.

Published

on

When it comes to insulting the President of the United States, the so-called “resistance” has tried it all.

They’ve thrown everything at Trump, from spray-tan accusations to intimating that he is the second coming of Adolph Hitler.  They’ve given book deals to washed up porn stars in order to humiliate him, and they’ve tried to convince the world that he worked for The Kremlin.

Now, inexplicably and ridiculously, even Trump’s taste in movies is an issue.

Los Angeles Times film critic Justin Chang said Friday on CNN that President Donald Trump mentioning the movie “Gone With the Wind” at his rally was a “racist dog whistle.”

Chang said, “It’s kind of unfortunate, I think, that we have a president whose entire presidency is founded on xenophobia and of course his comments are not surprising coming from someone who likes to dehumanize people of other cultures and people of color. So none of that’s surprising.”

He went on:

He continued, “Well, that whole thing, “Gone with the Wind” and “Sunset Boulevard,” that all smacks of a dog whistle hearkening back to an earlier era of Hollywood greatness. Look, we can love “Gone with the Wind,” and also acknowledge it’s the romantic view of the old South, which many people find problematic. That is another racist dog whistle as well.”

Chang would later go on to say that Trump is also “lazy” for not having a more current repertoire of Hollywood films to speak of.

Baldwin Goes on Tirade, Says ‘Sniveling’ Republicans Akin to Germans Under Hitler

Inevitable. Imbecilic. Insensitive.

Published

on

America’s political cauldron has reached a boil in 2020.  We are at our hysterical peak.  There is nothing that surprises us anymore…not in the least.

Case in point:  The melding of politics and entertainment into one cohesive and all-consuming unit.  Just earlier today we reported on two Hollywood Walk of Fame recipients were working together to solve the homeless problem in California.

Now, one of the small screen’s biggest names is again inserting himself into the political conversation, this time evoking one of history’s most maniacal men in order to raise a petulant point.

Actor Alec Baldwin is doubling down on his Nazi rhetoric by once again equating President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

In a recent tweet on Thursday, the 30 Rock actor blamed Republican senators for lacking the courage to stop “Hitler” — i.e., Trump — from seizing power.

“You wonder how Hitler took control of a once great country,” Baldwin wrote. “For those of you too young to recall the War or its aftermath, simply watch how this GOP-controlled Senate behaves. Their sniveling fealty and lack of courage. And you begin to get it.”

It was only days ago that Baldwin insisted that Trump is pushing our nation toward a “lawless and malignant” dictatorship.

Much of Tinsel Town has resorted to smearing the President as some sort fo Hitlerian figure, which is deeply offensive to those whose families were affected by the Holocaust.

Hollywood Predictably Bashes Republicans as Oscars Turn Political

Two thumbs down.

Published

on

While it may not have come as much of a surprise to hear that there were moments of political gibberish during last night’s Academy Awards, just how pointed the entire affair has become is a bit shocking.

It has become almost a prerequisite for Hollywood’s biggest names to wear their political beliefs on their sleeves as of late.  It seems, at times, that being announced as the recipient of one of these awards is only a partial victory, as you’ll still need to knock your politically-tinged speech out of the park to make it into the headlines the morning after.

Tinsel Town’s most eligible bachelor, Brad Pitt, found himself in precisely this sort of situation last night while accepting the Oscar for best supporting actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The four-time Academy Award nominee won the best-supporting actor accolade for his role as a stuntman in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” The win marked his first-ever Academy Award win for acting. He immediately took the stage and got political by taking a jab at senators who voted against Democrats’ requests to call new witnesses in the impeachment trial, specifically former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who claimed he was willing to testify.

“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said. “I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”

Joaquin Phoenix, star of controversial Batman-adjacent film Joker, was similarly inspired, albeit in the realm of animal rights.

“I think whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against the belief, one nation, one race, one gender, or one species has the right to dominate, control and use and exploit another with impunity,” the animal-rights activist said.

“We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow,” Phoenix continued. “And when she gives birth, we steal her baby even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable and then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.”

For those of us who look to Hollywood to escape the political fracas of our national landscape, the entire affair received a hearty two-thumbs down.

CNN Attacks Trump Supporters as Unintelligent ‘Rubes’ Who Can’t Read a Map

This incendiary gibberish is simply un-American.

Published

on

There is little doubt that what passes as “news” these days, at least on cable television, is little more than incendiary infotainment meant to rile the masses into a feverish fanaticism.  This is how networks like CNN and others keep viewers from tuning out, as our emotional connection to the world of politics makes us chemically dependent on the drama of it all.

This is easy to spot.  Just pay attention to how each network is faring in the ratings, and you’ll find that those trending downward in that department will often trend skyward in sensationalism.  They add anger and vitriol to the mix in order to bring attention to themselves, often shamelessly, in the pursuit of profits.

The latest hyperbole from left-leaning CNN takes that tactic to another level, with host Don Lemon and guests expressing their belief that supporters of President Trump are dimwitted and illiterate.

A partial transcript follows:

DON LEMON: [The NPR reporter] has a master’s degree in European studies from Cambridge University. Also, [Pompeo] doesn’t really say that she couldn’t identify Ukraine on a map, he insinuates it’s just a — it’s just a petty attempt to put her down, right? Is that what this is?

RICK WILSON: Of course, of course. [Pompeo’s] just trying to demean her, and obviously, it’s false. And, look, he also knows, deep in his heart, that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter “U” and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it. [Pompeo] knows this is an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump — that wants to think that [does Trump supporter impersonation with southern accent] ‘Donald Trump’s the smart one, and y’all – y’all elitists are dumb!’”

WAJAHAT ALI: [Trump supporter impersonation] You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling!

WILSON: [southern impersonation] Your math and your reading!

ALI: [impersonation] Yeah, your reading, you know, your geography, knowing other countries, sipping your latte!

WILSON: [southern impersonation] All those lines on the map!

ALI: [impersonation] Only them elitists know where Ukraine is! Sorry, I apologize.

LEMON: [wiping tears, laughing] Oh, my God!

ALI: But it was Rick’s fault. I blame Rick. But, in all honesty —

LEMON: Hold on — hold on — hold on. That was good, sorry. Rick, that was a good one — I needed that.

At a time in which the nation is divided hotly, and political violence has become an expected part of the culture, this sort of demeaning diatribe does nothing but tear us apart and should be condemned with the utmost vigor.
