  • Robert Redford to Play Dan Rather in 'Truth'

    07/09/2014 6:40:09 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 99 replies
    Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather's producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries. - See more at: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/robert-redford-play-dan-rather-717476#sthash.Y0QB620e.dpuf

    Athens Banner-Herald ^ | Jim Thompson
    Late last month, a SurveyUSA poll for an Atlanta television station put establishment Republican congressman Jack Kingston in front of fringe tea-party favorite Republican congressman Paul Broun by eight percentage points in the race for Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat. On Friday, though, Kingston stood to lose that ground, as both he and Broun released campaign commercials featuring fake telephone calls.

    The enigmatic and hard to locate founder of the conservative news and information site FreeRepublic has finally been located after years of searching. After spending millions in local "establishments" of ill repute our reporter Jim Thompson has finally tracked down this legendary recluse. Suprisingly he has been located living in the America's most liberal city, Boulder Colorado. According to our reporter, Mr. Anderson has been living in the liberal bastion and pot capital of the world in order to build up the mental anti-bodies required in order to sustain a full assault against the liberalism he is expected to endure...

    The Wire.com ^ | October 26, 2011 | ELSPETH REEVE
    House Democrats are blocking their Republican colleagues from using Obamacare in letters mailed on the taxpayer's dime to voters, but who made up the term in the first place? Lots of people are asking this question, getting answers like "Certainly a republican, potentially Glenn Beck" and "I am about 80% sure it was Rush Limbaugh" and "Hillary Clinton's campaign coined Obamacare." Iowa Rep. Steve King claimed President Obama himself made it up. Free Republic posters want to claim credit. Lots of liberals suspect an insidious plot by Fox News. But the answer appears to be: a lobbyist.

    San Diego CityBeat ^ | D.A. Kolodenko | D.A. Kolodenko
    San Diego likes to claim the great 20th-century hardboiled detective writer Raymond Chandler as much as Los Angeles does. Although Chandler wrote about the City of Angels more definitively, it’s well known that he wrote The Long Goodbye, Little Sister and Playback in La Jolla, where he lived in the late ’40s and ’50s. Playback, his last novel, was even set there. Tours of Chandler’s San Diego are well-documented online in blogs: people visit his extant but renovated house in La Jolla; the soon-to-be-demolished Whaling Bar in the La Valencia Hotel, where several scenes in Playback take place; and his...

    On the Monday morning after the Super Bowl, where, at the White House party the big game bill of fare was apparently fit for a (fat) king, Michelle Obama announced an initiative to persuade (cajole?) restaurants into serving smaller portions. I'm sorry, but even though I might agree restaurant portions are a bit large, from what platform of expertise or authority does this person speak? The last time I checked, she was a lawyer, unelected to political office. She probably has more credibility in the area of mesothelioma. Why does she think we care or revere her opinion on food...

"She deserves it," DWTS executive producer Conrad Green tells PEOPLE. "And a significant portion of our viewing audience believes that, too."

We might bring back something similar to it. We might kill it outright."

    Dear Mr. President, We are still a free country with a constitution and our God-given unalienable individual rights. You can't just order people to purchase your health insurance plan. The congress does not have the constitutional authority to enact your socialist health care plan anyway. The federal government has no authority to involve itself in health care issues. And your plan is most definitely socialism whether you care to admit it or not. And it's unconstitutional. But I do love your methodology. No matter what the problem, all we have to do is throw more federal money at it and...

    Let's face it FRiends, if the unconstitutional healthcare bill passes, the socialist coup d'etat will have advanced well beyond the point of no return! There is nothing in the constitution that authorizes this illegal federal power-grab and plenty that forbids it. If the Obama/Reid/Pelosi Marxist attempted coup pulls this off without the people resisting to the hilt, then they'll have no restrictions whatsoever on implementing the rest of their Liberty killing Marxist agenda. America will be no more. The whole idea of our constitution is to severely restrict the federal government to only its dozen and a half expressly listed...

He attended public schools in Wilmington, went on to boarding school at St. Paul's and attended Princeton University, the family university, from 1924 to 1928.

He was a practicing architect in New York City until 1940. With the escalation of the war in Europe in the early 1940s, Thompson volunteered for service in the United States Army, an important turning point...

    (Fresno, California – 7/15/09) Jim Thompson, 31, lived a fairly quiet life in the lazy town of Fresno, California until approximately 4 days ago when his world suddenly turned upside down.

Mr. Thompson issued the following spurious statement: “Up until neigh on 4 days ago, I was livin a down-home quiet life with my two dogs, Bubba and Bough, them dogs ain't got a...

    I'll tell you what. The dozen or so insults made by about a half-dozen anonymous members of the general public on an Internet forum were disgraceful. So we pulled them.

Even the...

    MSNBC's Olbermann Twice Gets Free Republic Founder's Name Wrong By Matthew Balan Created 2009-07-15 12:11 Keith Olbermann, one of MSNBC’s resident leftists posing as anchors, named Jim Robinson, the founder of FreeRepublic.com, as his runner-up on his “Worst Person in the World” feature on his Countdown program on Monday evening but twice called him “Jim Thompson.” After first implying that “Thompson” and his site’s moderators were a bunch of juveniles, Olbermann explained that the reason why the Free Republic founder was so bad was because a few posters on one of the regular picture caption threads made “racist” comments, that...
