Watch Clint Eastwood Speak at Republican National Convention - YouTube

wtf?
I stayed up last night and watched this.
Very bizarre speech. Rambling incoherently to an imaginary Obama on an empty chair..He came across as senile.

I noticed that one cannot leave comments on this video. Not sure if this is standard for PBS, but I can only imagine the comments. Is he really senile? Was he acting? Is he a mole for the Democrats working to undermine the Republican Party? The criticisms he had for Obama were that he wasn't anti-war enough and he never said anything positive about Romney except maybe we should give 'another guy a chance.'

From the Huff Post:

Quote:
"I think Mr. Romney asked the only sensible question, you know, he says, "Why are you giving the date out now? Why don't you just bring them home tomorrow morning?" Eastwood said.

The crowd cheered hard, creating the awkward spectacle of a Republican convention roaring for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from the battlefield.
Methinks there is more to this story than meets the eye.

Is it possible that really is a mask? The sound was not in sync in the version I watched, but I did compare the face.....especially the eyes....to other videos and he does seem even more wooden than usually. Could be botox, but nothing but his lips move and he moves his head from side to side in a very awkward manner.

I also noticed at .33 they panned to his wife and she was NOT smiling. She looked to be on the verge of tears. Why would that be....unless she knew how much her husband was being humiliated.

Revenge IS sweet.

Foe, he is an Illuminati and member of the Bohemian Grove. It´s incredible to see people around here defending him so much. We have footage, members list, confessions and people still keep closing their eyes to the truth.

I don't see how your blanket dismissal helps us interpret this rather bizarre event. Whatever one might say, this speech has people scratching their heads and creating controversy.

If we assume that the PTB control events like this, what is the meaning? If he is now senile, who put him out there? If he's playing dumb like a fox, whose team is he playing for? Why was Ann Romney so terribly sullen when her husband was introduced for his moment of glory?

Something very odd is going on here.

He's just an old guy, he hasn't got dementia. The speech was from the heart. He's a good a guy, just not a truther, but why would he be? Why would any rich successful person need the bad ugly truth or go looking for it? Sure Charlie Sheen and a few others did, but they are in the minority. Clint doesn't realise that Romney is also going to be more of the same. I just wish that wasn't the case..

It's time for the elite to realise how sick they are.

This makes no difference, we keep on believing they are good, the artists are great, politicians care about humanity etc etc, and their power increases and we continue to decay. Whatever, Im happy for me, this old rag ain´t fooling me, nor anyone from this Bohemian Grove.

This was as much a psy op as any other. An appeal to those who remember back when the illusion that was America was sound. The illusion that if you went to school, got a good job then the sky was the limit, that anyone could run for President... Mom and apple pie. Very few people under 40 hero worship Clint Eastwood. The older folks who remember his movie premieres were the target of this speech. He took 11 minutes to say virtually nothing. Actors are politicians, and politicans are actors.

+1. Interesting, I never knew Clint was a Grove member. I'm not surprised at all.

Is Clint really a member of Bohemian Grove? Or did he just go there once? Is Bohemian Grove just theatre? The Alex Jones doc on Bohemian Grove was one of the strangest things I saw, but ....

Anyway, there can't be any change for as long as our manufacturers continue to manufacture in China, and for as long as banks are allowed to play with high frequency trading and other 'products'. The only thing that will make our countries good and happy again are proper jobs with prospects. I'd be happy to just return to a 1980's UK. The elite could keep their fucking power, just give us back some ability to have a good life for fuck sake. Take us back at least to 1980...

The truth about Harry's Vegas host: Steve Wynn was barred from running casino over 'Mafia links' and drug dealing (and don't ask about the naked girl who died on his boat trip)





Clint Eastwood was best man to Steve Wynn's wedding just last year, Wynn is the owner of Wynn's in Vegas. Yes, the hotel where Harry's royal romp took place.
Encore Wynn owner Steve Wynn has never shaken off accusations that he was linked to the mobsters

The tycoon is believed to be worth $2.5 billion
Wynn himself has vigorously denied any involvement with the Mob
By Tom Leonard
PUBLISHED: 21:15 GMT, 31 August 2012 | UPDATED: 23:00 GMT, 31 August 2012

parts removed:
This is a man who bought Impressionist masterpieces … only to hang them on the walls of his casinos; who reputedly blew his finger off while playing with a gun given to him by a former Mob hitman, and who boasts that his wife Andrea has ‘the greatest butt in the world’.

Money is no object. In 2005, Wynn sank $2.7 billion into building just one hotel — the curved glass and steel Wynn Las Vegas. He then did the same again a few years later with the Encore.

So enamoured is he with the idea of himself as Sin City royalty that he arranged his wedding last year to coincide with that of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Hollywood star Clint Eastwood was best man and lingerie model Caprice a bridesmaid. The reception, held in the ballroom of Wynn’s Encore resort, boasted a 500-strong guest list which included Sylvester Stallone, Steven Spielberg, Lionel Richie, Sir Philip Green and Celine Dion.


In 1967, he was with some business associates of noted mobsters on a private yacht cruise on a lake in Nevada when a naked young woman somehow fell over the back of the boat and was chopped almost in half by the propeller blades. Her death prompted an investigation, but everyone on board denied having seen the incident.
And he had trouble with officials in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in 1986 after investigators discovered mobster Tony Castelbuono, a friend of Wynn, was laundering the profits of heroin trafficking at his gambling tables. Wynn almost lost his gambling licence.

Today, such tales of the Mob are just water under the bridge. Wynn has re-invented himself as the business genius who demolished seedy gambling joints along the Vegas Strip and replaced them with slick hotel-casinos such as the Mirage (the city’s first 3,000-bed hotel), the Treasure Island and the Bellagio.

Part of his success has been his ability to turn on the charm with important people. But Wynn is notorious, too, for his temper. In 1991, he reached an out-of-court settlement for an undisclosed sum with the former president of Wynn’s Golden Nugget casino, who described Wynn as a womanising, brutal boss.

In allegations made in documents lodged at court, it was said that he would get so angry that his ‘eyes bulged and he started screaming at the top of his lungs and banging his head on the table’.

Interesting report on how Clint's speech is being viewed. It played well especially among hispanics:

"Here’s another data point, too: the split among Florida voters to Eastwood’s speech was 49% positive to only 24% negative by the next day — presumably even after the avalanche of criticism for it. The overall split is positive in almost all demos except Democrats (30/45) and liberals (26/58). Majorities of independents (51/26), seniors (54/20), men (54/24) approved of it, but the biggest positive response came from Hispanics, 62/21 — even better than Republicans (58/12). Even women (44/25) and black voters (43/37) liked Eastwood’s extemporaneous riff on President Obama.

The ultimate question, though, is whose minds were changed — and that looks bad for Obama almost along the same lines. The aggregate numbers are shown above, but here are some key breakdowns in the demos, which we’ll calculate by adding those switching from either undecided or Obama to Romney, and those switching from undecided or Romney to Obama, in that order:

Men: 32/16 (Romney/Obama switchers)
Women: 15/9
18-34YOs: 29/15
Black: 38/19
Hispanic: 25/17
Independent: 37/23"

A very interesting comment also:


"Clint Eastwood gave a performance not a speech. This man is abrilliant actor, and director of actors. He has directed 8 movies in thelast five years alone. He didn’t just suddenly lose it. And no actor of his caliber appears on stage with his hair looking like it did and acting like he did unless it was intended.

Mr Eastwood did some vintage shtick not unlike Jimmy Stewart or Bob Newhartto disarm his intended audience, Independent voters. He than proceeded to eviscerate Barky. Had he come out attacking the pResident, guns blazing with like he was Dirty Harry, he would have been far less effective.

Instead he used a little bit of stumbling here, a little aw shucks misdirection there as he stuck the knife between Barky’s ribs and twisted it. He demonstrated to those that get most of there their information from the MFM and have scarcely heard any criticism of “The One”, that he can be mocked. And ultimately the pResident is our employee, he’d not up to the job, and it’s ok to let him go. He did this brilliantly. Even the empty chair surrogate for Barky used a teleprompter. What better metaphor is there for Barky other than “A mean spirited empty chair? Eastwood’s mocking got so far under Barky’s thin skin that he had to send a tweet about it.

Eastwood also gave the left an opening to meltdown and say that he’s become a crazy old guy and lost it. This was a trap, and they took the bait. The MFM will now endlessly repeat clips of Eastwood mocking Barky trying to prove their point. And a wider audience than those who watched the GOP convention will see Mr. Eastwood’s critique. This will backfire on them. And If the Dems and MSNBC choose to mock and belittle Clint Eastwood who is beloved by millions of every political persuasion, let them do it. And see how many miles that gets them.

They have no answer for Clint Eastwood. And a good portion of their convention next week is going to be spent attacking a living legend and an empty chair!

Eastwood’s performance perfect, and it was absolutely wicked. Bravo!
