    Turner Classic Movies Schedule | 30 July 2014 | Chainmail
    Time to boycott Turner Classic Movies all day Friday: they are featuring nothing but Jane Fonda movies all day and including a "Lifetime Achievement Award" segment for her as well. I realize that Jane is Ted Turner's Ex but she is also a traitor to her country who went to our enemy's capitol to broadcast treason on their radio, betrayed her country's fighting men, and returned home to push pro-enemy propaganda. We have never dealt with her as we should have and punished her for her betrayal. Can anyone imagine what would have happened to anyone who had traveled to...

    She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age. The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn't exactly kind to aging actresses - admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality. In a thoughtful blog post entitled 'Crying', which has since been removed, Jane wrote: '[I've been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface? And I’ve come to feel it has to do with age....

    First Lady Michelle Obama says Jane Fonda is one of her role models, and that she admires her political savviness. During an interview with People Magazine, Obama listed "Hanoi Jane," as one of the people she would like to look and live like when she's 70 or 80 years old. "There’s Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman," Obama said. The comment is likely to enrage Vietnam War veterans who still remember how Fonda, now 76, went to North Vietnam in 1972 and was photographed sitting on an anti-aircraft battery. Fonda denounced U.S. military leaders as "war criminals"...

Michelle Obama profiled in People Magazine sees the traitor Hanoi Jane Fonda who has the blood of dead Americans in Vietnam on her hands as a 'politically-savvy' role model.

    She supports causes ranging from the Alzheimer’s Association to abused women, but Jane Fonda’s own rich charity foundation reportedly hasn’t forked over one red dime to a philanthropic group since 2006.

Returns from the previous four years also showed nothing distributed to charities. In 2006, the website reported, the foundation donated $1,000 to the Atlanta Obstetrical and Gynecological Society.

    When we first started getting messages at the Facebook page of “Reagan: The Movie,” objecting to our (allegedly) having chosen Jane Fonda to play the role of Nancy Reagan, we were mildly nonplussed. There were angry calls for boycotts, heartfelt pleas that we change our minds, and the occasional expletive from furious Vietnam veterans. At first we attempted to set the record straight. “Wrong movie,” our Facebook team would write back. “You’re thinking of a movie called ‘The Butler.’” But in time, the trickle turned into a flood and it seemed that no amount of corrections could stop the misunderstanding....

Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook page has been particularly vocal about the casting decision, given Fonda’s past frolicking with the enemy during the Vietnam War. “Growing up in a military family I heard my father and uncles talk about what Jane did, so from an...

    Lee Daniels' The Butler doesn't hit theaters until October, but the drama about the long-serving head butler at the White House already is being targeted by conservatives because of Jane Fonda's role as Nancy Reagan. So far, backlash to The Weinstein Co. release is fairly muted -- bloggers have disparaged the casting, and a Facebook page is promoting a boycott -- but chatter about the liberal activist has picked up recently. "The moviemakers are free to choose, but it seems like it was their way of giving people like me the middle finger," says Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and...

She was criticized then — and ever since — and says she understands the anger. Fonda says she knew immediately she had made a mistake and has apologized repeatedly, both privately and publicly.

    It only took 40 years. But finally, actress-turned-workout-specialist Jane Fonda has apologized for sitting on a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun during her 1972 visit to North Vietnam. Fonda, who used her fame to push her radical leftism during her heyday, traveled to Hanoi in 1972 in solidarity with the Viet Cong. While there, she proceeded to blame the US for supposedly bombing a dike system, and did a series of radio broadcasts stating that US leaders were “war criminals.” Those broadcasts were replayed for American POWs being tortured by the Viet Cong. Later, when POWs spoke about their experiences of...

    Remember when Jerry Brown tried to give Jane Fonda a job with the state of California? The California GOP wants you to. In an e-mail sent Wednesday, the state party points out an Oct. 13, 1981, Los Angeles Times story about Brown’s defense of a spate of controversial 1979 appointments he made in part to generate left-wing support for his nascent primary challenge to then-President Jimmy Carter. This year, Brown, a Democrat, is running for his old job as governor against former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, a Republican. Brown held the governorship from 1975 until 1983—and the GOP’s reminder, 29...

    On Monday’s Larry King Live on CNN, guest Jane Fonda portrayed herself as a victim of a "myth" that was "created" by "right-wingers" about her infamous "Hanoi Jane" visit to Vietnam to protest the Vietnam War. Without specifying what aspect of the "Hanoi Jane" story she considered to be a fallacy, though the "Product Description" at Amazon.com seems to shed some light on what she was referring to, she claimed that author Jerry Lembcke’s new book, "Hanoi Jane: War, Sex, and Fantasies of Betrayal," is "about the myth," and asserted that it is "sad" that some conservatives are "still stuck...

    Most stars will have been eagerly preparing their Oscars outfits over the last few weeks in anticipation of what is one of the biggest events on the showbiz calendar. And there's no doubt that a select few celebrities will be debuting the latest 'work' they have had done, as well as their glamorous gowns, Jane Fonda being a perfect case in point. Following her recent admission that she'd had cosmetic surgery, the 72-year-old actress was pictured leaving a star-studded pre-Oscars mansion party in Beverly Hills ahead of tonight's event. With a darker, cropped hairdo to complete her look, Miss Fonda...

    An almost poignant moment here as one of the many leftists who spent the past six years wrestling with his schadenfreude over setbacks in Iraq finally gets an outlet to project his guilt onto conservatives. Truly, celebrating the fact that the Daley machine will have to find another trough of taxpayer money from which to feed is precisely the same as Hanoi Jane sitting on a VC cannon and mimicking shooting down American aircraft. Thanks for confirming every last horrible conservative stereotype about MSNBC, Ed. If they ever move the modern-day Murrow out of the anchor spot, you’re a shoo...

    An Oscar-winning rabbi is condemning the actions of Jane Fonda, Danny Glover and Eve Ensler -- claiming their decision to boycott the Toronto International Film Festival is "an attack on the heart and soul of Israel." It's all over a program featured in the festival called "City to City" -- which honors Tel Aviv's 100th anniversary by spotlighting 10 Israeli films. Fonda, Glover and Ensler have decided to boycott the festival and signed their name to a letter sent to festival officials -- a letter that claims Tel Aviv was built on "thousands of destroyed Palestinian villages" and that the...

    Jane Fonda shows rebellious streak at 71 in T-shirt bearing her 1970 police mugshot Nearly 40 years after she was falsely accused of drug smuggling, you'd think Jane Fonda might have moved on. But it appears the veteran actress, 71, is still be holding a grudge against the Ohio policeman who arrested her several decades ago. Dining out with a friend at celebrity eaterie Mr Chow in Hollywood, the former fitness queen wore a T-shirt bearing her infamous police mugshot. Arresting style: Jane Fonda, picked up by customs officers in 1970 suspicious about vitamins she was carrying, at Mr Chow's...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Jane Fonda has undergone surgery to replace her left knee. The Oscar-winning actress had the operation Tuesday, and blogged about it beforehand. In a wistful post titled "So Long Old Knee" on her Web site, Fonda wrote that her knee joint was to "be sawed out and in its place will go a titanium rod and ceramic joint." According to Fonda, it had been "a strong, faithful knee." She said it helped her "up a lot of steep mountains and across rugged terrain." And she recalled smooches by former husband Roger Vadim (vah-DEEM'), who liked to...
