I guarantee I won't be watching, and won't be going to any movie Hanks makes in the future, either.

In the performing arts people that get paid a lot of money think what they say has great value. I suppose it's because they are among people that keep telling them how fabulous they are. Truly emperor has no clothes land.

Hanks and this pathetic group must believe that COVID has taken away our sense of good taste along with our beliefs in fair and honest elections. Although since most performers will lip synch, perhaps president-defect Biden will operate the record player.

Hanks was gifted a wonderful life thanks to hyperleft Hollywood. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of actors who could do exactly what he does and many would not only do it better, but keep their big, fat, mouths shut about politics. Sean Bean to name one. Anyway, 'superstar' Hanks will be able to produce the King of music, Bon Jovi, LOL. That's about right for the senile crook.

I'm glad to know that Tom Hanks is hosting a celebration for the incredibly corrupt, demented, and self engrandizing Joe Biden. Tom Hanks is as pathetic as is Joe Biden. Just like I dropped Fox News, I'm now dropping anything Tom Hanks has touched. Too bad, he's a decent actor and that's something in Hollywood, but clearly not a functioning brain cell in his head!

Hanks or any other lefty dirt bag won't be heard in this household. No TV set will watch the garbage. We know all the dirt politicians, I don't want to see them again. After all, most Dems did not show up for President Trump. Besides, I don't want to loose my breakfast looking at this loathsome thing called Sasquatch and her/his mate. Who in their right mind wants to watch 2 pedophiles, the new 'dr.' wobbling in high heels that she can't walk in, followed by the diaper clad and pumped full of drugs the new faux 'president'. Hopefully Chicago PD will be on or Law and Order with Hargitay. Great entertainment compared to the trash happening in DC!

I used to love that Tom Hanks seemed like the only really big name in Holly-weird that knew to stay out of politics. And he was universally loved for doing it. But the last few years, his brain-dead lie-beralism finally killed off his few intelligent brain cells, and he slipped into insanity. His movies will never see another penny of our money. I think the last movie I went to see was the last "Avengers" movie. But as I watched it, I realized that 99.9% of the people in it were just hate-filled Trump hating lie-berals. Chris Pratt was about the only redeeming actor in the movie (and did you see how the Hollyweird lie-berals tried to crucify him because of where he chose to go to church recently). I am 60, and if I live to 100 and never see another Hollyweird movie, that is just find and dandy with me!!!

I used to like Hank all the way from the tv show Bosom Buddies. Funny how back the men looking like women was funny. Now men actually think it’s normal with idiot leftists egging them on. Anyway the last movie I saw Hanks in was Captain Philips and that was after his leftism started to manifest itself. His reaction to Ricky Gervais’s taking him and the rest of Hollywood during the Golden Globes was all I needed to know how much of an elitist jerk he really is. Nothing he’s done since Captain Phillips has been and will never be viewed in my house again. Hanks may be an good actor but he’s not a good person.

"Mostly Peaceful" - Detaching Violence
From BLM, Attaching It To Election Protests

While America burned, Democrats and their media insisted loudly that the Black Lives Matter protests were mostly peaceful. Aside from all the people dead and wounded, the $2 billion in damages across entire ruined cities, and the sheer level of devastation nationwide. Despite that, Democrats and the media claimed that the BLM riots were mostly peaceful by arguing that when considered across time and space, most of the protest activity was not violent. This was an exercise in serious hairsplitting with Democrats and the media classifying a protest as "peaceful" before it somehow "turned violent".

Biden to propose 8-year citizenship path
for immigrants without legal status

Posted by OhioNick 1/18/2021 9:49:48 PM Post Reply
President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration. It would provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status, according to a person granted anonymity to discuss the legislation. It's a massive reversal from the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies. The legislation puts Biden on track to deliver on a major campaign promise after four years of President Donald Trump’s restrictive policies. But it does not include beefed-up border security, which makes passage in Congress in doubt. It is set to be introduced after Biden takes the oath of office Wednesday.

The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country. Congress' private cops are the 19th largest police force in the country. It’s a larger force than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, or Milwaukee with a massive $460 million budget. It’s the only legislative federal force in the country that is answerable exclusively to Congress. While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher. Much higher.

The Seattle Times reported that Parler filed a lawsuit Monday against Amazon claiming a breach of contract and antitrust violation after its account was suspended.

When “All in the Family” debuted Jan. 12, 1971, on CBS, it was exactly the TV show America needed — though America didn’t realize it at the time. Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin had taped two ABC pilots of the scrip t, both starring Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton, starting in 1968. But ABC was reluctant to commit; as Lear told Variety’s Army Archerd, it was “too controversial.” Lear and Yorkin took the show to CBS, which surprisingly bought it.

U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. And it underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance.
