Jon Voight in Negotiations to Play Soviet Spy in Ronald Reagan’s Hollywood Biopic

EDITORS NOTE: The best political documentary of all time, in my opinion, is “In The Face of Evil, Reagan’s War in Words and Deeds” (see trailer) This film, written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon, is a treatment on Reagan’s rise to power and how he, along with Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul the II, won the cold war against the Soviet Union and forever banished Communist Russia to the ash heap of history.  Unfortunately, the Communist had their own parellel game plan that involved the control of the American Mainstream Media, our Public Education and Hollywood Movie making. So do not expect to see truth but do expect to see a rewite of history to support the abosolute hate of the tradional values that made this Nation the greatest on earth.

Jon Voight in Negotiations to Play KGB Agent in Ronald Reagan Biopic

by Paul Bond

Jon_VoightThe indie, “Reagan,” is one of at least three upcoming films about the 40th U.S. president.

Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight is negotiating to play a pivotal role in Reagan, an upcoming movie about President Ronald Reagan, people associated with the project said Tuesday.

Voight, perhaps the most prominent and outspoken conservative in Hollywood, would play a Soviet KGB agent whose job it was to track Reagan, the 40th U.S. president who is largely considered a hero of the Republican party.

The movie is based on The Crusader and God & Ronald Reagan, two books by Paul Kengor. The story unfolds as a young Russian leader visits a retired agent named Viktor – the character Voight is negotiating to play – so that he may learn of the demise of the Soviet Union.

“Viktor is actually a character based on a number of KGB agents and Soviet analysts who we now know were tasked with keeping tabs on Ronald Reagan for many years,” Kengor said. “This is a feature film and not a documentary and I thought it was a smart way for the producers to keep the integrity of the story and yet make it entertaining.”

The $35 million independent movie is being written by Jonas McCord (The Young Riders, The Body) and Howie Klausner (Space Cowboys). It is produced by Ralph Winter, who was behind the 2000-06 X-Men films, along with Mark Joseph, who produced the indie film Doonby in 2010 and was a marketing executive on such films as The Passion of the Christ, Holes and Ray.

The former U.S. president is a fairly hot commodity in Hollywood nowadays, with multiple projects in the works that will feature Reagan. The Butler, for example, has already generated controversy for casting liberal activist Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan while Alan Rickman plays Ronald Reagan. The Weinstein Co. film is expected to open in 2013.

Reykjavic from Participant Media will feature Michael Douglas, also a liberal activist, as Reagan. Participant has backed several politically-charged movies, including Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and former Vice President Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

Perhaps the best-known treatment of Reagan was in 2003 when James Brolin portrayed him in the Showtime miniseries, The Reagans, largely perceived to be a negative take on his presidency.

Gingrich the Media, Hollywood and Late-night Liberals

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Dick McDonald

The Republicans have four remaining candidates running to be the party’s standard bearer in the Presidential election in November.   To date the voters have been focusing on who could beat Obama and their clear choice to date has been Mitt Romney.  Fortunately the debates have clearly demonstrated who could beat the media, Hollywood, late-night liberal talk show hosts as well as Barack Obama  and that is Newt Gingrich.

It’s not even close. Republicans are facing a well-financed media blitz from Obama and that has to be countered. The media will pull no punches and attack the GOP anyway they can. The Letterman’s and Stewarts will spew their nightly propaganda.  Now who is best prepared to take them on?  Romney? Santorum? Paul?  We only can dream they could but they can’t.  Newt has been the candidate that Obama, the media and late-night talk should fear.

He doesn’t get standing ovations from Americans because Americans believe they have  a free unbiased press, a capitalist in the White House or an efficient government  He gets them because  he tells the truth with unerring accuracy with uncompromising conviction.  He has demonstrated the courage to take on the left wherever they exist.

All candidates are one-thousand times better than Obama.  However Santorum is four to eight years away from a serious run.  Ron Paul is way past prime time.  Mitt Romney would probably be a great President. Unfortunately Mitt is not the warrior Newt is.  Nor has Mitt been in the Washington wars. He is of and for business and the poster boy for the 1%.  He has too much baggage.

Newt may not be perfect but we know all his warts we have been privileged to see him eviscerate the media and Democrats with his oratory in the debates.  No one even comes close.  Vote Gingriche He

Hollywood Jihad: Shootout, Gunman Calmly Targeted Drivers and People While Shouting Allahu Akbar!

What is most disturbing about this story, apart from the obvious horror, is that not one news account reported what one witness said the shooter was screaming: “allahu akbar.” Not one news account. The media is the enemy.

Check out the video here. One of the witnesses states that the shooter was repeatedly shouting “allahu akbar” at minute 2:42. This video is on the bottom right of the LA Times new story, but they don’t mention it in their coverage — neither does Reuters, CBS news, The Hollywood Reporter, KFAI, or any of the other news reports. I expect that this video will be removed or edited.

Hollywood shootout: Gunman calmly targeted drivers, pedestrians LA Times blog (hat tip her royal whyness)

A gunman pointed his weapon at more than a dozen people Friday as he randomly opened fire on drivers and pedestrians in Hollywood before being fatally shot by Los Angeles Police Department officers.

Video shows the gunman calmly pointing his handgun and opening fire on passing cars near Vine Street and Sunset Boulevard near the ArcLight Cinema.

A man driving a Mercedes was shot in the jaw and taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was in critical condition. He is expected to survive.

Video: Witness captures dramatic footage of shooting

The scene resembled a fast-moving Hollywood production, said some witnesses, leaving them with the sensation that they’d witnessed something surreal.

“When I heard it, I didn’t react to it being real,” said Greg Watkins, a student at the nearby Los Angeles Recording School who was walking on the street and had just taken off his headphones to take a call from his girlfriend when the shooting began.

“This is Hollywood, and they do film stuff all the time,” he said, standing near the ArcLight Cinemas. “I honestly thought they were filming something.”

Serge Durand, who said he was visiting from Atlanta, filmed the attacks from a friend’s apartment above the intersection. In the video, a gray car swerves to avoid the shooter as he points what appears to be a weapon at the car.

“Is this the end?” Durand said he heard the shooter exclaim.

Emmanuel Fierro, 21, staying with a friend in another apartment above the intersection and also a student at the recording school, said, “I walk through these streets every day to go to school.”

“I couldn’t believe what was happening in the streets,” he said, “but I guess this is Hollywood.”

The attacks began about 10 a.m. south of Sunset, police said.

A young man in a white tank top was spotted walking up the street yelling and firing a handgun in the air. He then turned to firing at passing motorists who seemed to be picked at random, including the man in the Mercedes, police sources said.

The gunman was eventually shot by a detective and an off-duty officer who may have been working on a movie set nearby.

Police have so far found no motive in the shooting.

In addition to a gun, the attacker also displayed a knife during the incident. LAPD detectives have gone to the man’s home to make sure there was not a domestic incident or some other act of violence that precipitated the shooting.
