Why McConnaughey?

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 6/8/2022 11:31:40 AM

The White House served up Hollywood star Matthew McConnaughey to lecture us on the virtues of assorted gun control proposals yesterday. He emotes more effectively than press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, but what does he have to offer? He is a native of Uvalde. He feels strongly about the Uvalde massacre. He doesn’t think too much of the Second Amendment. He has a superficial above-it-all take on the culture war. He is a tool of the Biden administration. Are we seriously supposed to believe that he “feels” more strongly about the massacre than you or I do? That he’s a better person? That he “cares” more? Even if so, which I doubt,

McConnaughey started out as a surfer dude type that made fun movies. Now, he's older, his boyish good looks have faded and he wants to be recognized as serious and relevant, and obviously doesn't care about alienating half of his audience. He had better be careful because he's bordering on being a punch line.

That's it? McConnaughey "rubs (the author) the wrong way"? Big deal...I should care what rubs Scott Johnson the wrong way? I'm no fan of McConnaughey or his views on guns. Guess I'm not a fan of Mr. Johnson, either.

I appreciate his outspoken Christian faith as an actor. If 'actors' want to 'walk the talk' then STOP making movies where every problem is solved with a gun! Stop glorifying gun violence, period, the only exception being a patriotic film depicting a 'righteous' military action.

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." --Benjamin Franklin McConnaughey is a thoughtful fellow, but he's willing to surrender liberty for the benefit of anti-constitutionalists in the government and outside government. That's bad company to keep.

I've said it before on this site and I will keep on saying it... McConnaughey is a leftist tool knuckle head and NOT TO BE TRUSTED OR TREATED SERIOUSLY. I've been blasted here for saying it... "But, but, but.. he does so much for the kahmuuuuniiitttyyyy!". Hes is an idiot. He does what is most expedient for him. He's a demoncrap. He should be given 2 choices.... Stripped of citizenship, all assets seized and deported to the socialist nocturnal emission geographical location of his choice along with his entire family. Or... Executed within 24 hours as proof of his loyalty to his beliefs, along with his entire family Case closed. NEXT!

Matt and wife are firm lefties and Democrats. I have read all the articles tagged as this actor “opening up” about his Christian faith. He talked just like Oprah. No thanks. I think Democrats schooled him and directed that whole presser. Matthew is definitely interested in politics now because his sell by date as a B actor approaches…

Why did the White House choose Matt McConnaughey as their official spokesman on this gun issue? The answer isn't rocket science: Because their only other two options were Joe Puddinghead Biden and Kamelala "Giggles" Harris. I'd have chosen McConnaughey as well. He's a darn sight better spokesperson than Chuckie Schumer or Nancy Pelosi.

After police arrested a California leftist on a mission to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh, the Biden administration finally condemned the campaign to intimidate the Supreme Court. “As the president has consistently made clear, public officials, including judges, must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety or that of their families," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre falsely claimed. After leftist activists had posted a map of the homes of Supreme Court justices to harass them, Jen Psaki had retorted. "I don't have an official U.S. government position on where people protest." There is in fact such a position and it's illegal under 18 U.S.C. § 1507

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” Those were the words of the Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, one of the most powerful elected officials in the nation, in March 2020. After spending years cynically delegitimizing the high court, Schumer had moved to openly threatening lifetime-appointed judges, by name, because he feared they would knock down the concocted constitutional right to an abortion. Initially, Schumer refused to walk back those remarks. His spokesman ludicrously claimed the statement was “a reference to

Calling the fattest category of people 'morbidly' obese is offensive, woke researchers said today. And they urged doctors and scientists to stop referring to unsuccessful attempts to lose weight as 'failures'. Terms used moving forward should include 'ineffective' or 'insufficient' weight loss, or even 'secondary weight regain'. No specific suggestions were given to replace the phrase 'morbid', however severe is often used instead. Critics today slammed the recommendation, published in a leading obesity journal, saying it was 'odd' given morbid obesity is a clinical term. But industry experts agreed that 'less stigmatising' language was crucial in the battle against the bulge, saying 'words truly do matter'. Joe Nadglowski, president of the Obesity Action Coalition, said:

It is no surprise that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) dislikes President Donald Trump. After all, no man has done more to denigrate the Iraq/Afghan War strategy that her father crusaded for than Trump. He not only opposed Cheney’s approach to war, but he also mocked it mercilessly. As the former Vice President’s oldest daughter, with her own dose of less charm and less savvy, Liz Cheney has now entered on her own crusade. She stands athwart the House floor denouncing Trump, all his pomps, and all his evil works. Instead of Holy Water, she will sprinkle the tears of fellow Republican failure Rep.

Of all the crazy policies we see implemented around us, from decriminalizing theft to teaching children to change their “gender,” perhaps the craziest is government’s determination to force us to drive electric vehicles. EVs like the Tesla are perfectly fine cars, or would be if they weren’t subsidized or mandated. But they are terrible for the environment, and the conditions under which their materials are mined raise serious ethical questions. Ronald Stein makes excellent points in his column titled “Is it ethical to purchase a lithium battery powered EV?” "The lower image is just one lithium supply mine where entire mountains are

I’ve been promising to collect our own lexicon of the real meaning of key leftist terms—an undated version of Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary, for a while now. So here goes. Readers are encouraged to propose additional definitions and terms in the comment thread, and we’ll update this lexicon from time to time. Populism: When the wrong person or cause wins a free election, like Brexit, Trump, or a Soros DA recall. Racism: Any opposition to the agenda of the left. Democracy: Any institutional design or voting system that enables the left to get what it wants. Threat to democracy: When Republicans win an election. Equality: Outmoded idea from the Declaration of Independence.

In April, a black nationalist terrorist named Frank James opened fire on the downtown N subway train in Manhattan. While the racist gunman had a large stockpile of weapons, he happened to use a Glock pistol that he had bought over ten years ago. Now Glock is being sued. James bought the gun in Columbus, Ohio in 2011. So he quite clearly didn’t purchase it, intending to shoot up a New York City subway train. Nevertheless the lawsuit blames the gunmaker for having "contributed to creating and maintaining a public nuisance in the State of New York" even though the gun wasn't even sold in New York.

Of all the shortages that I have reported in recently, a possible coffee bean shortage must be ranked among the most dire. It turns out coffee bean reserves have plunged to their lowest since the 2000s. …Stockpiles of high-end Arabica beans, a favourite of artisan coffee shops and chains such as Starbucks, totalled 1.078 million bags, or about 143 million pounds, according to data released Monday by the ICE Futures US exchange.” Brazil is the world’s top coffee producer. By the 1820’s it was already producing thirty percent of the world’s coffee. Today, it produces a third of the world’s coffee with 40 to 60 million bags annually.

Police say 33-year-old Michael Cook attempted to rob the cellphone store near 43rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road on Saturday around 5:15 p.m. After punching and kicking a woman multiple times, he left the scene with stolen items. Court documents say Cook hit the woman 13 times in the head and face. As she was hit, she dropped her phone, and Cook picked it up.

Speculation is rife concerning the possible presidential candidates representing the two major parties as the nation approaches the 2024 elections. Everyone has an opinion, and the pundits are competing in the expertise sweepstakes. What can we say with some degree of plausibility? The Democrat roster is, by all accounts, dramatically uninspiring. Biden, who speaks in tongues, is plainly beyond redeeming; the question is whether he will manage to survive the year, let alone stumble, lollop, and whiffle to the end of his first term. Kamala Harris belongs in vaudeville or farce, given her talent for provoking laughter. Both will have to be retired in favor of an electable candidate. But who?

Homeowner Maiso Jackson has lived in his home for 20 years, and he’s owned his gun for the last eight. He's taken lessons on how to handle that firearm.
