My Twilight Years ~ Clint Eastwood


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

 

Though it sounds just like him, anyone who has viewed Clint Eastwood’s infamous “empty chair” monologue at the 2012 Republican National Convention likely has no illusions that the Academy Award-winning actor/director is a fan of Barack Obama.

However, this circulated piece about the realizations of one’s “twilight years” which ends with a castigation of the current president is not a reproduction of anything Clint Eastwood said or wrote.

 

 

If you realize each day is a gift, you may be near my  age.

Clint Eastwood at 84…GOT TO LOVE THIS

As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end.

There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn’t any “more.”
No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together,   no more phone calls just to chat.  It seems to me that one of the important things   to do before that morning comes, is to let every one of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs  and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say,   “He was my friend, and I know where he stood.”

 

So, just in case I’m gone tomorrow, please know this:
I voted against that incompetent, lying,   flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing,  bleeding heart, narcissistic,  scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!

Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too  many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think  your neighbors have too many kids.

Regards, Clint
Make my day—Pass it on!

Update: ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle’s Dad Looked into the eyes of Clint Eastwood and gave him a crystal clear warning !

I’ve read American Sniper and found it mesmerizing.

The fact that Clint Eastwood directed the film makes me believe this will be another instance when the film may well be better than the book.

The Blaze Dec. 24, 2014 Howerton

The father of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle reportedly warned actors Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood that there would be hell to pay if they did “anything” to disrespect his son in their Hollywood production of “American Sniper,” which is based on Kyle’s autobiography of the same name.

Eastwood directed the film and Cooper portrays Kyle, considered to be the most deadly sniper in American history. Both Hollywood stars reportedly traveled to Hamilton, Texas, to discuss the film with Wayne Kyle, the late SEAL’s father.

Wayne told Eastwood he wasn’t happy that a movie was being made about his son, but his biggest concern was ensuring the truth was told.

“They both looked me in the eye and told me they would not do anything to harm my son’s reputation,” Wayne told MailOnline.

Then he warned both men. “I told them I would unleash hell on them if they did anything to disrespect my son,” he added.

Wayne Kyle said he ended up liking both men and praised the duo for traveling all the way to Texas to consult him about the movie.

Kyle was tragically killed in 2013 when he and a fellow veteran, Chad Littlefield, were fatally shot by Eddie Ray Routh at a remote gun range in Glen Rose, Texas. The soldier’s father said he’s unable to express his real thoughts about his son’s alleged killer due to the upcoming murder trial.

“All I will say is that PTSD is not an excuse for murder,” he said. “I will be at the murder trial with my wife Deby.”

Clint Eastwood was right and Obama knew it


crew-2231By Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

I’ve often wondered when Clint Eastwood gave his great talk  during the RNC convention with Obama, why he didn’t use and empty suit.

Likely he wanted to be more original.

What a great moment in time.

In case you missed this I’m putting it up again: Classic Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood ,a man of very few words, chooses them wisely as he does below.

Other than what follows he has no opinions.

Do You Feel Lucky, Punk?

No firearms collection is complete without a .44 Magnum, most shootings are caused by pistols yet the fools we continue to elect want to ban so called assault rifles.

Clint Eastwood

What’s up with that?

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry): I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

 

Eastwood: If DC Doesn’t ‘Give a Damn,’ How Can We?


jcComment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Mr. Eastwood is correct, for the most part Washington D.C. doesn’t care about We the People, they are to involved in maintaining their grasp on power and perks. 

It’s up to the voter to hold these representatives accountable yet we don’t.

Simpson Bowls is unlikely to pass as it has too many tax cuts for the hard left, and not enough cutting of useless programs. 

In the end it would dampen the effect of the lobbyist and of course these are the people who push our elected officials to back legislation that will buy their products or services.

Said another way, their campaign contributions keep these reprobates in office.

No one can question the patriotism of Clint Eastwood.

Back to the days when he was Mayor of Carmel, Eastwood is an accomplished actor, director and a businessman and principal owner of Mal Paso Productions.

Award-winning director and actor Clint Eastwood told CNBC that Washington should follow the bipartisan lead of Simpson-Bowles.

Hollywood legend and Republican supporter Clint Eastwood told CNBC that Washington gridlock is sending the nation racing towards another contentious debt deadline.

“It’s almost like they don’t give a damn,” he said, in a “Squawk Box” interview that aired Friday.

The Oscar-winning director who’s also known for his tough-guy roles asked rhetorically, “If they don’t give a damn, why did they expect anybody else to?”

With the deal to avoid the “fiscal cliff” barely in the rearview mirror, President Barack Obama and Republican leaders are on the clock again, scrambling to compromise on a package to replace the already-postponed automatic government spending cuts due to kick-in next month.

Eastwood: Washington in a ‘Political Quagmire’
Award-winning director and actor Clint Eastwood told CNBC it’s “very disappointing” that American leaders “aren’t stepping up.”

Eastwood described it as “very disappointing” that so little has been accomplished. “The election’s over. We should be moving ahead. The leaders aren’t stepping up,” and he said, “I think they have to hear from the public out there. And maybe the public is a little lackadaisical.”

He was thrust into the political spotlight of the 2012 presidential election — first with the “Halftime in America” Super Bowl commercial he did that year for Chrysler; and then over the summer at the Republican National Convention with the now infamous “empty chair” bit. (Entire Article Below)

RNC 2012: Clint Eastwood’s speech to the Republican convention in Tampa


Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot

Nobody out here has a crystal ball, we may believe we know how this election is going to turn out.

After all, no president in U.S. history has been reelected with records as woeful at home and abroad in modern history.

So you know the peanut farmer from Georgia is smiling these days. 

I was left feeling a sense of serious hope and admiration for those that came before us to build and hold such a magnificent  concept as Constitutional Republic and Democracy.

Yes the United States is still the place in the world and will always be where people look to when they escape from tyranny of their oppressors no matter what the current administration has done.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

EASTWOOD: Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you very much. Save a little for Mitt.

Entire speech here

(APPLAUSE) I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, what’s a movie tradesman doing out here? You know they are all left wingers out there, left of Lenin. At least that is what people think. That is not really the case. There are a lot of conservative people, a lot of moderate people, Republicans, Democrats, in Hollywood. It is just that the conservative people by the nature of the word itself play closer to the vest. They do not go around hot dogging it.

(APPLAUSE)

So — but they are there, believe me, they are there. I just think, in fact, some of them around town, I saw Jon Voight, a lot of people around.

(APPLAUSE)

Jon’s here, an academy award winner. A terrific guy. These people are all like-minded, like all of us.

So I — so I’ve got Mr. Obama sitting here. And he’s — I was going to ask him a couple of questions. But — you know about — I remember three and a half years ago, when Mr. Obama won the election. And though I was not a big supporter, I was watching that night when he was having that thing and they were talking about hope and change and they were talking about, yes we can, and it was dark outdoors, and it was nice, and people were lighting candles.

They were saying, I just thought, this was great. Everybody is trying, Oprah was crying.

(LAUGHTER)

EASTWOOD: I was even crying. And then finally — and I haven’t cried that hard since I found out that there is 23 million unemployed people in this country.

(APPLAUSE)

Now that is something to cry for because that is a disgrace, a national disgrace, and we haven’t done enough, obviously — this administration hasn’t done enough to cure that. Whenever interest they have is not strong enough, and I think possibly now it may be time for somebody else to come along and solve the problem.

(APPLAUSE)

So, Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them? (Full Text Below)
