Actor Robert Redford Loses It:
'A Dictator-Like Attack by Trump
on Everything American Stands For'

Original Article

It's always entertaining when famous actors or singers think that we -- normal people -- are curious to know their political views. I mean, we all know that members of Hollywood are generally radically liberal. If they take a political position, it's going to be in favor of abortion, against "climate change," or -- of course -- passionately anti-Trump. Case in point, this op-ed written by actor Robert Redford for NBC News. "We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime." Namely: "A dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for. As last week’s impeachment hearings made clear, our shared tolerance

Comments:

What the hell is he talking about? Trump doesn’t get anything he wants from Congress. To whom is he dictating? And what does he think America “stands for“?

Poor Robert, all he ever had going for him was his looks, and he does not even have that anymore.

Redford lives in a self-reinforcing bubble, like all his Hollywood friends. Bobby, isn't it ironic that you've benefitted so much from this country, when all you've done is play pretend in front of cameras in pictures that others have bankrolled? Oh, and you run the Sundance film festivals. You certainly rub elbows with the common folk there! Elitist idiot.

#1, as a woman, I never saw the appeal - he has major acne scarring. All he really had going for him was blond hair and blue eyes. Why isn’t he being panned as a straight white male? I’ve been receiving his Sundance catalog in the mail for decades. I’ve never purchased a single item, yet they keep arriving in my mail box. The trees! The trees! Aren’t his catalogs contributing to destroying the planet?

Redford looks like an ancient mummy from the 3rd dynasty who escaped from one of those glass coffins on display in the Egyptian wing of a museum and immediately headed for a hair salon and got a very bad hair dye job. Watching this dwarf's acting on the big screen has been the same as watching paint dry. Another one of these very wealthy Hollywood hypocrites who got theirs and now want to take what we have. Fortunately his shelf life on this planet is about to expire.

Evidently, the very notion of "what America stands for" can only be defined by ultra-liberal socialists who DO NOT TOLERATE the dissenting views of other AMERICANS... Redford id free to express his views, but so is everyone else under the 1st Amendment-- Those who want to TAKE AWAY that right in favor of their own perceptions BY THE FORCE OF GOVERNMENT are UN-AMERICAN

Words from a one dimensional actor. If you've seen Redford in one movie then you've seen him act the same in all. Acting with Barbara Streisand in The Way We Were her dumbness political soundings must have rubbed off on him or maybe not. Just more garbage from a Hollywood crapweasel who cares.

Where does he get this 'dictator' stuff? Trump has had to fight to get anything he wants from Congress. If he were really a dictator or Hitler incarnate as some call him, he would already have built a 100 ft wall on our southern border, deported every illegal, deported all Muslims legal or not and had a large number of reporters and enemies executed. Wait, that sounds pretty good.

What in the hell is this retarded jerk talking about? None of his rabid assertions have the slightest basis in fact. The "impeachment " was a total sham, a hoax that could only have fooled a fool. Redford was never the sharpest pencil in the box, clearly hasn't gotten any brighter as the years have passed.

I thought Ovomit was the worst president in the history of this great nation!!! I never thought any president could be worse than Jimmy Carter, but Ovomit quickly proved me wrong!!! But all that said, I never lost a second of sleep over Ovomit. His incompetence was not going to cause me to loose my sanity!!! Sadly, so many of these brain dead lie-berals have let their president, Donald Trump, live rent-free in their heads 24/7/365 since he was elected!!! It's hard to keep your sanity when you let anyone do that!!!!

That would have been Obama with the dictator like moves Sparky. Remember how he said he had a pencil and a phone. He snuck in so many debilitating EO's behind the scenes that we are still dealing with the damage they are doing. It isn't Trump who spied on Americans, it was Obama Robbie. It wasn't Trump who kept selling out America, that too was Obama. We know what you stand for. You prefer to value a tree on the edge of your property that is actually a serious traffic hazard and has killed people. How is that American again? At least Paul Newman formed his own company and found out how real life and business works. Redford defines the term dumb blond joke.

Redford, like other liberals, lives in his own head, with a loose association at best with reality, the reality the rest of us live in. It is no accident that so many in show business are this way. They earn their money by pretending to be someone else, inhabiting make-believe worlds. And when anything occurs (like nationalism or Trump or blexit) that doesn't comport with their made-up worlds, they lash out, opposing it with made-up accusations and made-up labels to do battle with their made-up villain. Earth to Redford: wake up and look around, and I don't mean on your ranch. Take a drive through the small towns and small cities in the midwest, mile after mile, town after town, state after state, where the people live who have supported you financially your entire life. Drive past the abandoned factories and empty, grass covered blocks where nice little houses once were, past the closed stores and derelict buildings. Then come back, and we'll talk.

More than one million Swedes are now taking medication for depression, while a study has found people in Stockholm feel insecure due to surging crime. Around one in ten Swedes now take antidepressants, a number that has doubled over the last two decades, becoming one of the countries with the highest use of antidepressant drugs, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. Mikael Tiger, a psychiatrist and researcher, stated that there are several reasons for the rise, including cheaper medication and less stigma attached to those who take the drugs. The most significant increase in demand for the drugs has been children aged 10 to 14, but it is

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) is one of the few Democrats who aren’t insane. Yes, that club has lost a lot of members since 2016. She’s still a liberal Democrat, but she’s not nuts. She has noted how identity politics has hijacked her party. She hates it when people generalize all Trump supporters as racist. And she warned her party in 2016 that the Clinton campaign was ignoring the Rust Belt, and her state, at their peril. Now, she’s observing that the overtly partisan public impeachment hearings are pretty much accomplishing what Russia wants with this circus: division. And it’s the Democrats leading that charge because…‘orange man, bad.’

Cable news shows spent countless hours in November wondering how the public testimony of national security officials will affect the impeachment proceedings against President Trump. But few are asking how these proceedings will affect national security in the long term. One potential answer should worry everyone, regardless of your position on Trump: Efforts to turn these officials into political weapons in Congress will put our national security in grave danger. The president trusts the National Security Council and the broader intelligence community to provide him with the best possible information and analysis for decision making that is essential to national security.

Designation for Mexican Cartels

President Trump last week signaled his intention to designate the Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations (FTO). In doing so, he takes the most aggressive step yet toward addressing the brutal violence that plagues Mexico and is fueling a migrant crisis at the southern U.S. border. Mexico’s ongoing descent into a gangland is brought into current focus with the horrific murders of six women and children of dual Mexican and American citizenship. This came on the heels of Mexican government forces being routed by the cartels, who were ultimately successful in releasing the son of notorious cartel leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. Over several hours, heavily

Anxiety about global warming is skyrocketing in the Western world to the point one psychiatrist says, "I believe that everyone now has some climate anxiety." It's no wonder. Western leaders stoke the fires. On November 28, 2019, the European parliament declared a global climate emergency. Its members were responding in part to a children's crusade to save the planet. In March 2019, millions of children in over 120 countries skipped school to embark on what has become a series of "climate strikes."

As we head into the most consequential election in our republic's history, you can listen to what you want to hear or what you need to hear. Hillary Clinton was far closer to winning than most realize, and whatever liar or crazy Democrats nominate for 2020 will have the identical advantages Clinton enjoyed. Furthermore, much of the rhetoric espoused by our Trump nationalist side is almost verbatim what Democrats circa 2016 said; as Yogi Berra once quipped, it's déjà vu all over again.

The first Christians were not complainers, Pope Francis said Saturday, because “sad people are not Christians.” “We think of the first Christians, who had everyone against them, who were persecuted and yet they didn’t complain about the world,” the pope told participants in an international conference on evangelization taking place in Rome. “Reading the New Testament, we see that they were not concerned with defending themselves against an empire that put them to death, but with announcing Jesus, even at the cost of their lives,” he said. The pontiff also had strong words against defeatism and pessimism, urging his hearers to be joyful in witnessing to Christ.

Receipts for Friday trail only last year’s Cyber Monday’s record-setting $7.9 billion in sales. According to Adobe online sales are up about 20% from last year, suggesting shoppers are getting more comfortable making large purchases online. And they’re more comfortable ordering from mobile devices: just under half, or $2.9 billion, of Friday’s sales were purchases made using smart phones. As of 9 a.m. Eastern Time Saturday, the small-business promotion Small Business Saturday had already pulled in $470 million in online spending.

Newsweek has fired the journalist who was responsible for the false story that President Donald Trump spent Thanksgiving “tweeting” and “golfing,” when in fact the president was secretly traveling to Afghanistan to surprise U.S. troops for the holiday. Newsweek told Breitbart News in a statement that the magazine has moved away from “knee-jerk political snarkiness” to focus on real reporting. A Newsweek journalist was terminated Friday after an article entitled, “How is Trump Spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing, and More” by Jessica Kwong was published Thursday morning. The piece sparked major backlash, as President Trump had actually been landing in Afghanistan, where he surprised American troops for Thanksgiving.

Bad weather on Thanksgiving week can be stressful in the best of circumstances. But this week’s outbreak of TV weather hysteria was a sight to behold. For days on end, even Trump news was booted from the top of the network evening newscasts by dire warnings of the “triple storm danger” heading across the country and the “holiday travel nightmare” likely to result. The reports hit all the usual TV-weather bases: shots of skidding cars and chugging snowplows; airport scenes of passengers stranded by flight delays; Al Roker bounding among the weather maps as though he were plotting a military operation. And, as always, the alarming statistics:

She must have looked good enough to eat. A jovial Joe Biden nipped his wife Jill’s finger onstage Saturday at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as she introduced him at the first stop of an eight-day, 800-mile road trip through the first-to-caucus state. As Jill Biden flung an arm wide to make a point, her husband theatrically dodged her hand — then, on a second pass, gave her a playful chomp on her fingertip. She took the nibble in stride, laughing along with a crowd of about 200 supporters.

Florida Rep. Val Demings maintained that President Trump should be impeached even if the alleged quid pro quo with Ukraine never took place.Demings, a Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, was asked during an interview on This Week whether it was relevant to the impeachment proceedings that Trump’s request for an investigation into Joe Biden never came to fruition. Host Martha Raddatz noted that no investigation into the Bidens ever happened and Ukraine received its military aid anyway, but Demings maintained that it was irrelevant.“You’re going to make me go back to my law enforcement experience.

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday launched his “No Malarkey” bus tour in Iowa, part of a bid to regain momentum among the state’s voters ahead of the nation’s first presidential caucuses. The frontrunner’s eight-day bus tour is part of an effort to sharpen his pitch before the Feb. 3 caucuses as polls have shown Biden slipping in the first-in-the-nation state. The tour will cover 18 counties and is a play on one of Biden’s most well-known phrases. Perhaps most notably it was used in his 2012 vice-presidential debate with then GOP VP hopeful Paul Ryan, when he told his rival that his criticism of the Obama administration’s foreign policy

As one can readily see, Hillary Clinton has been unable to recover from having lost the 2016 presidential election -- a self-inflicted wound that she will never cop to. Or, possibly, an act of divine intervention. She has come up with well over a dozen reasons for her defeat -- every one but the real one, i.e. she is a loser -- not just a sore loser, but a total loser. She is incredibly incompetent, fundamentally dishonest, and criminally corrupt, and these are her good qualities. In addition, she is bereft of a trace of integrity or character, has absolutely no judgment, and is devoid of people skills

Buckingham Palace has been decontaminated. Prince Andrew’s office has been closed down. Any chair he sat in has been reupholstered, all doorknobs swabbed down. Let’s not even talk about the bathrooms. I can’t remember a time when the royal family’s damage control was so swift and absolute. Priests are excommunicated with less haste and more mercy than Andrew in the wake of his disastrous BBC Epstein-related interview, and its ever-cascading fallout. But I detect the odor of scapegoating and hypocrisy in the decisive role that Prince Charles has played in this purge against his brother.

The first Christians were not complainers, Pope Francis said Saturday, because “sad people are not Christians.” “We think of the first Christians, who had everyone against them, who were persecuted and yet they didn’t complain about the world,” the pope told participants in an international conference on evangelization taking place in Rome. “Reading the New Testament, we see that they were not concerned with defending themselves against an empire that put them to death, but with announcing Jesus, even at the cost of their lives,” he said. The pontiff also had strong words against defeatism and pessimism, urging his hearers to be joyful in witnessing to Christ.
