Reader: Movie review is off base

Posted: September 28, 2012 - 8:49am

You should be ashamed to have allowed such a biased review of “2016: Obama’s America” to run, much less to occupy so much space, in the Sept. 20 newspaper. Chris Jenness, the author, is a self-proclaimed Obaminite, who should restrict his critiques to stand-up comedians because his movie review was a joke. He outright tells us he is “primed” to disagree with any Obama negativity, and that is exactly what he blatantly does, even as he claims this has nothing to do with his I-am-a-fan-of-Obama politics. He claims this movie is “without facts,” which makes me think he didn’t actually see this movie, or he slept through it.

He sings the praises of Michael Moore, whom he describes as a true movie maker, even as he tell us Moore is “biased, spins the facts, alters conclusions to fit his agenda, ambushes and wrongly harasses people” — Yep, Mr. Jenness, no bias there!

And then, one can only assume, you intentionally published this political hack piece, the day the movie quit showing in Kenai, so anyone reading that piece of spinning hog wash, won’t be able to see the move and form their own conclusions. Shame on you!

It's a Movie Review!

Peg Bowen: it's a movie review! A movie reviewer is supposed to write his OPINIONS. Good grief. Your outrage overkill just discredits you, not Chris Jenness.

Peg Bowen don't listen to Allen

Good letter Peg and don't listen to Allen as he appears to be a false god worshiper just as Chris Jennes is.
Exactly Allen, IT IS A MOVIE REVIEW Chris's rants about his displeasure over Clints TRUE remarks of OUR President never in the Presidential chair when needed have absolutely nothing to do with the movie being reviewed, or can't you see that either?
Peg realize that false god worshipers always must stand up for their deities as their deities can't do it them selves usually, take Islam for instance compared to TRUE Christianity. Muslims must fight for their false god while Christians allow their God to fight for himself and them because we know the truth and the truth will set you free.

Peg keep SHOUTING OUT THE TRUTH because it DOES NOT discredit you or make you look small, but actually makes you look smart about reality of plain sence truths about Their Chosen One and his hopeless hope for them or anyone.
As a friend of mine always says, use common sence when looking for the plain sence, other wise everything will become nonsence, making no sence.
This seems to be the case for Obama worshipers and all false religious worshipers with their beliefs in absolute nonsence that make no sence, to those that have common sence.

It is a form of Religious Politics at it's debts this supposed movie review allowed by the Clarion, which one would think would desire for the Truth to be reported so as to help people prepare for coming possible troubles, rather than trying to quite the Truth of Reality, Reality BASED on Historic Facts concerning OUR President actions and words every day while he has been Commander in Chief, the GR8 Divider of America.

Peg TINSTAAFL as we well know

Peg There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch, or a free movie.
Peg Bowen, Allen is trying to silence your views by insulting you. If he and Chris are allowed to promote their viewpoint in the Kenai Peninsula Clarion, THEN SO MAY YOU. Carry on, speak up.

The 2016 movie is not free. It is a movie for PROFIT, exactly as Michael Moore’s’ movies were for PROFIT. There has been controversy recently about a pirated copy of the film on YouTube, and a disinformation campaign which lies and claimed that the movie would be shown for free.

These are copyright infringements. And one can make their own guesses as to who would undermine the movie.

It is also very revealing that the left-winger uses the violent war terms like ‘outrage’ & ‘overkill’ when addressing you, to shut your voice down. While at the same time, pretending that – it’s JUST a movie golly gee, goodness me!

The National media outlets are the not investigative journalists

This newly revealed and publicized FULL UNEDITED 2007 speech by Barack Obama is exactly why private citizens make movies about politicians. the MSM are the hand puppets of propaganda campaigns. When the press won't do the job - American private citizens have to.

The main stream liberal media CENSURES, DELETES, & SUBSTITUTES stories rather than digging into, exposing, and verifying actual events.

Thomas Jefferson said in order to have a free country we needed a free press. He believed that the press would protect the interest of the public from abuse by the government.

Here’s the link to the newly disclosed 2007 speech by BHO

Thr Clarion Censors Comments

Bring the comments back for the Touble with Curve. I like the comments! They are way more fun to read than the actual bias movie reviews! The Clarion should not Censor comments. Since when are there rules for comments to be "on topic?" I am more than sure that comments would have been kept if they were praising Obama and Chris Jenness's tingle up his leg at the mere mention of "Obama." Now to address the subject of "Off topic:" Jenness mentioning Obama in his review of The Trouble With Curve was very much off topic. Pherhaps Jenness can move his column into the "Opion" section of the Clarion. My point is- if Jenness wishes to use his column in hopes to glorify his political opinon- let the people comment freely on and share their opion!

Atlas shrugged II

This movie comes out the same day Columbus discovered America, oct 12, and shows how the Government thats Big enough to give you everything, is also Big enough to take it all away. Surprise, Surprise!
Thats exactly what Obama's Govt. is gonna do and is doing daily, working for their BIG SURPRISE of taking Total control of everything and everyone.
I am amazed at how they always seem to come out with movies about future events which are actually ment to lull people to sleep of Reality replaced with an attitude of thats not whats really happening as the pot of water starts to boil.

I have always been amazed at Arnold 'The Governators' movies and how they all have to do with many things found in the Bible pointing to the last Days and coming World Order that men are working towards which will be ruled by their god, Satan himself. Alliens coming from outer space to rule and save the earth from mankinds distruction movies all point to what the Mayans and 89 other societies have said would come and not excluding what Gods word also says will come to close out the End of the Age.
I really like Revelation 12:12 which says that Satan is cast down to earth and has come down with gr8 wrath knowing his time is short. God says Woe to earth and the inhabitants there of and how this is exactly what the Mayans are saying about the month of 12 and year of 2012, 12-12.

Movies are ment to program people for things that are wanted or desired in every way of life either for Good or Evil. EVERY SINGLE MOVIE IS MENT FOR THAT PURPOSE.

DID I GUESS RIGHT ABOUT A COMING BAD MOVIE REVIEW IF ANY AT ALL??

Do not be so surprised. It is a well known fact that the Clarion is extremely liberal...and is puppet owned newspaper from and outside company.

Conservatives know the truth. After the debate, I think there are a lot of Democrats who had a serious wake up call likewise!

It was a very sad day for the Clarion to sell out to an outside company. It is my hopes one day that, once Kenai/Soldotna etc. achieves a greater population, that another newspaper (similar to the Cheechako News) will start up a NEW NON-BIAS newspaper and crush the Clarion!

for the new ringer

repeated for new ringer 'CARLIKING' that had joined in the comments chanting cheering section:

You have now thrown a left-wing party-approved insult at an oppositional opinion. Parrots and Cockatoos can mimic slogans. Dang, even monkeys and elephants can sling Poo.

Now, wash your hands, and freely demonstrate your actual viewpoint, by human means – A written commentary in the local newspaper. With an actual Point.

If you have flung your 'POO' CARLIKING

""Some people's knee-jerk phobia of critical reasoning is truly frightening."" {meaning what exactly?}

Several folks haphazard dread of decisive calculation is correctly alarming? is that what you meant? Ringer

You make LEEWAYTOO’s chants look positively intelligent, like SUSS
He has a point, and he takes a stand! It's rude, but clear.

None of all of the writers always commit significantly particularly to questionable unreliable potentially proven premises without always permitting innumerable jumping to conclusions as though always not completely avowed yet alleged as to persons or persons unknown. (this IS fun)

A PARODY:
Dempukes the party of lies, liars and hypocrites
None can tell the truth and all are imbeciles

Atlas Shrugged 2 sound good

Atlas shrugged 2 sounds good and it comes out the very same day the Jewish sailor Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492 while looking for a New place for Jews to escape to as Spain was kicking all Jews out of Spain on that very day of Av 9,1492 according to history.
Av 9 is the day the 12 spies came back from spying out Canaan land recorded in Numbers 13; and gave the bad report of Giants in the land which could not be defeated.
OOPS! They already forgot everything God had done to preserve them since they left Egypt, so God put the smackdown on them from that day on and TRUE HISTORY shows that many times have the Jews had bad things happen to them on this same day as a REMINDER of WHO is INCHARGE and WHO Israel and ALL the World seems to forget thus depending on Governments of men that ALWAYS FAIL THEM.
Sorry, back to the movie which shows exactly what i have been saying is coming any day now as it all aligns with what Gods word says will come for the End of Days with an Absolute Control Freak Leader and His Global Government which has absolute control of ALL Commerce and no one can buy or sell or perform any type of providing for self or family unless they belong to the UNION 1 Government.
So i think i might go see this even though i have trouble hearing at movies i can figure out whats happening by the SIGNS on the screen portraying a Government thats Big enough to give what you want, is also Big enough to take it all away someday soon.
Do ya think they are programming people for this takeover or what, as they try to make reality into fiction at the movies?? Pretty slick this lulling people to sleep with movies or possible future actions here on planet earth as we see the End of the Age approaching as in just over two months away as 89 differant ancient societies have predicted 12-21-12 will be as well as Rev. 12:12 for their ancient gods return to earth.
Pretty slick, make truth look like fiction, or fiction look like truth, as in SUPER DUPER, DUPER Obama's promises and misrepresentation of facts to show a better America than what it really is, A SUNK SHIP. Does anyone know what TRUTH IS ANYMORE?

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL REACTION

TRY THIS SAY JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY TRUE HOPE OF FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE TO BELIEVE IN AND OBAMA HAS NO HOPE FOR ANYONE AND WATCH THE JESUS HATERS AND OBAMANATION OF DESOLATION LOVERS COME UNSOLDERED AT THE SEAMS.
IT'S COOL, TRY IT SAY JESUS SAVES YOU AND OBAMA HATES YOU.
OR OBAMA WILL BOW AND CONFESS THAT JESUS IS LORD OF ALL SOMEDAY AND SO WILL OBAMA WORSHIPPERS AS WELL.

MAN THAT NAME OF JESUS JUST IGNITES PEOPLE TO START SPITTING AND CUSSING AND HAVE FITS AND FLOP AROUND ON THE GROUND IN CONVULTIONS.

IT'S SO COOL, TRY IT, SAY JESUS CHRIST SAVES AND IS LORD OF ALL.
NOW SAY, YA CAN'T FIX STUPID JESUS HATERS OR OBAMA LOVERS.
Yep! It's still raining and Obama is not in control of that either, but JESUS CHRIST IS.
Just keep heaping those coals of fire on your head there SPW with your BHO worship.

The nanny state in

The nanny state in action: SUSS protecting liberal zombie sockpuppets.

The pointless commentary by the earlier commenter CARLIKING is nothing more, I repeat NOTHING MORE THAN A PERSONAL ATTACK. They made personal attacks on every person who commented, and towards the writer of the original letter, by making NO POINT directed to any particular party or topic. - - It was “poop.”

Did you see anything about ‘the movie review’ in the comment? No. Nor did I.

Why don’t you let them speak for themselves, what are you afraid of? Are YOU the Liberal version of the “Koch Brothers” or are YOU the thought police? Are you the nanny-in-chief? You are attempting to dictate what can be written by censuring oppositional comments. Pass on to your zombie friend:

“”If you don’t want none, don’t start none.””

“”Don’t write if you only want to dish it out, and not take a return volley.””

“”Don’t start something that you ain’t [hu]man enough to finish.””

Suss makes a personal attack, against personal attacks. Irony at it’s finest. Thank Goodness there is a SPWRIGHT to pipe up loud and clear, it’s almost refreshing. The truth may be discovered somewhere in between us all. speak up.

NO you just proved my point

Worship of Obama while complaining about the rain and the one that makes it rain, Jesus is his name. But you probably think Obama causes it to rain don't ya?
Think what you want to but it's Jesus that will decide when the sun shines and whom it shines as well, not BO.
Isn't this fun SPW? We need to have lunch together so we can hug or what say we go see Atlas Shrugged 2 together on oct 12th, i'll pay for movie and lunch because i made lots of money when i was a Democrate power lineman! Actually i don't have lots of money as the Bailed out banks and Wall street thugs stole almost all of it from my 401k before i got the rest out before they got it too. But Jesus always provides my needs and i'm sure he would float me a loan to take a fellow human out to lunch and a movie, OK?

SPW
Do ya wanna bet that BO comes out with a peace deal with IRAN any day now just before the election in order to BS the American people into another False hope and change thingy??
Any day now they will unveil yet another SUPER DUPER, DUPER BHO HOAX for more worship of his kingship/messiah, plus votes as even the dumbest of the DUPED can see he ain't even close to being IN that Commander in Chief's Chair for Americas Good.
Any day now the next GR8 HOAX from the SUPER DUPER, DUPER ment to further decieve.
