Yesterday on The View, Woody Harrelson was on to discuss his latest movie called “The Messenger.” It’s about a soldier whose duty it is to make the death notifications to the families of the fallen. Now, Woody’s anti-war stance doesn’t go un-noticed on The View, but when Joy asked Woody about Afghanistan, Woody does something I’ve never seen anyone else do – leave her speechless.
Watch, laugh, then stare uncomfortably at this weirdo, Woody, after he makes his “pipeline” comment. Stupid freak.
Tonight on Mike Huckabee, actor Jon Voight was on to discuss the over-reaching tentacles of the Obama administration into the healthcare system and other facets of our lives. He calls Obama arrogant (deservedly so), and quotes a piece from conservative scholar Thomas Sowell about the state of current events.
Jon Voight says “no man…has the consent of a God to decide that he’s God.” The audience was near silent on this one, but I don’t think the silence was in protest; I think the silence was the everyday American’s shock at someone who is speaking the truth.
Finally Voight voiced his desire that Huckabee run again for President, saying we need a virtuous man like him. Do I disagre? Not in a million years. America could do worse – and it may TAKE a staunch devout conservative like Huckabee to bring our country back to the way it should be.
God bless Jon Voight. He IS courageous to speak out even though I’m sure he gets backlash in Hollywood for his views. Truth be told, I really don’t think he cares; nor should he. The truth will never steer you wrong, and it’s a position that needs no defense.
Today on the Glenn Beck show, Judge Napolitano, sitting in for Glenn, brought up this very sentient question: Why is this singer’s death more important than that of our military men and women who give their lives to protect this very country, which Jackson so freely enjoyed? Answer: It’s not more important. And shame on the media for not doing their job.
My nephew, Brian Bradshaw, was killed by an explosive device in Afghanistan on June 25, the same day that Michael Jackson died. Mr. Jackson received days of wall-to-wall coverage in the media. Where was the coverage of my nephew or the other soldiers who died that week? There were several of them, and our family crossed paths with the family of another fallen soldier at Dover Air Force Base, where the bodies come “home.” Only the media in Brian’s hometown and where he was stationed before his deployment covered his death.
Monica Crowley, sitting in tonight for Bill O’Reilly, discussed the media coverage of Michael Jackson’s death with Dr. Mark Lamont Hill, Temple University Professor, and James T. Harris, host of “The National Conversation” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Crowley began the segment showing some of the laudatory coverage during the BET Awards last night, most notably by Jamie Foxx. At one point, Foxx declares they’re there to “celebrate this black man,” proclaiming “he belongs to us (black people); we shared him with everybody else.”
Later on in the show, Foxx asks the BET audience to “make some noise” because the ‘media is spreading bad stories about him,’ but he needs the audience to show some love for Michael to over-ride that negative coverage. Crowley also played some red-carpet footage of P. Diddy and Beyonce expressing what a bad rap MJ was getting in the press, and it just went downhill from there (for me, anyway). Diddy tried to declare that there was never any negative press about JFK or Elvis, that MJ was one of the “greatest heroes for us,” stating that “he’s one of the reasons why Barack Obama is president.” (Is this something to brag about?)
Harold Koh, recently appointed to be legal advisor to the State Department. Yeah “that” Koh who believes in trans-nationalism.
‘Get a government job, and we’ll wipe out your student loan! Hey, everybody, come on board! The rest of the taxpayers can pick up your tab for ya.’
Why Michael Jackson’s story is relevant to today’s times, especially when it relates to his acquisition of the Beatles’ music library. Hint: They had to offload it because of their tax bills that tallied up to 90% of their income. SHOCKING! /sarc
Obama is ready to hop on the “scold the Hondurans” bandwagon and meddle, compared to his “we shouldn’t meddle in Iran’s elections” mantra. Double-standard? Hmmm… you decide.
Janeane Garofalo’s dismissing of the tea-party goers, calling them “straight up racists.” So what now? The folks at the Dallas Tea Party have publicly and overtly invited her to attend their Tea Party so she can come and see for herself that they are NOT a bunch of “tea-bagging rednecks.”
