The Legend Clint Eastwood’s still got it. Get ready for his new movie ‘The Mull’ which hit theaters December 14.
Eastwood directs and stars in the film about an elderly man who becomes a drug runner for a Mexican cartel. To praise The Mule by saying that it’s the best film ever made by an 88-year-old American director who also stars in it is to say nothing at all, because there’s never been such a thing before.
Nor should Clint Eastwood’s 37th feature be damned with faint praise this way, as no limitations or excuses are needed.
When has Clint Eastwood ever disappointed us? This man is an 88-year-old rebel American and is still alive and kicking it. He’s a true American loving patriot who should be praised for his work. He deserves every bit of it to. Everybody should go and support his film.
Watch a preview of the legend in action
Here’s more on this movie via The Hollywood Reporter:
This based-on-a-true-story yarn about a still-kicking but nearly destitute senior who starts running drugs for a Mexican cartel is engaging, humorous and, it would seem, quite personal in the way it portrays a man making an attempt to atone for his deficiencies as a husband and father. Eastwood’s good-times-seeking old-timer is a temperamental contrast to the cantankerous and insulting one he played in the smash hit Gran Torino a decade back, both written with the star in mind by Nick Schenk. Longtime fans should eat it up.

First seen sporting a sunhat and tending to some flowers in a greenhouse, Eastwood does look noticeably older than he did when he was last onscreen in the little-seen Trouble With the Curve six years ago; he walks slowly, looks a bit frail and for the first time lacks the full measure of the impressive build he’s had from the beginning of his career. To see him participating in something called the National Daylily League seems like something of a joke.
But as spry and engaged in the moment as his Earl Stone seems to be, he’s none too appreciated by his immediate family, including ex-wife Mary (Dianne Wiest) and especially daughter Iris (Alison Eastwood), who leaves the room whenever he shows up, even at her own daughter’s wedding. It appears that the man was just never there when he needed to be and now he’s paying the price.

But there’s worse to come for old Earl when he runs out of money and is kicked out of his house. Chance, however, comes to his rescue as he’s hired, partly due to his perfect driving record, to “just drive” to El Paso to make a delivery. It’s the beginning of a beautiful, not to mention lucrative, arrangement, and for a good long while it proves mutually beneficial to the cartel (Earl is as reliable on the job as he was unavailable for his family) and to Earl himself, who can spread some money around and eventually move back into his house.
At the same time, federal agents in Chicago, led by a DEA special agent in charge (Laurence Fishburne), are trying to nail some cartel drug runners out West but are suffering through a long dry spell. It may take a while, but you know that eventually the unit’s men will cross paths with the unsuspicious Earl, especially after a new agent, Colin Bates (a smallish role played by Eastwood’s American Sniper star Bradley Cooper), comes on board.

Male Bartender Suing CNN’s Don Lemon For Sexually Charged Assault In The Hamptons
Don Lemon is being sued by a man who claims the anchor sexually harassed and assaulted him while out at a Hamptons hotspot. Classy. And it is graphic. Written statements indicate it was a filthy, sexually-charged attack on a bartender in New York. That bartender’s name is Dustin Hice, 38.
Dustin was out with his co-workers at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor on or around July 15th, 2018, when Lemon allegedly assaulted him, detailing the incident in a complaint that was filed over the weekend in New York Supreme Court for Suffolk County court. Lemon, of course, denies the assault.
Unfortunately for Lemon, Dustin recognized him and did his best at first to get Don’s attention. He wanted to buy him a drink. Lemon, 53, responded to Hice’s offer by declining the drink and telling the young man he was ‘just trying to have a good time’, according to the court filing. Lemon is openly gay and married to another man and you would think that he would just tell the guy that. But not so much.
Things got violent and sketchy later that evening between Hice and Lemon according to court documents. “Sometime later that evening, unexpectedly, Mr. Lemon walked towards Plaintiff and his colleagues inside of Murf’s,” states the complaint. “At such time, Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache under Plaintiff’s nose.”
“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff “Do you like p***y or d**k?”. While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”
Gross. But wait there’s more…
BREAKING: Man Sues CNN’s Don Lemon for Alleged Assault at Sag Harbor Bar https://t.co/7XFOMD0v1y
— Mediaite (@Mediaite) August 13, 2019
From The Daily Mail:
“That is when Hice ‘fled the bar’ and took five to ten minutes collecting himself before he was able to return inside, having recovered from the incident which he claims left him ‘shocked and humiliated’.
“Lemon was gone by that point, while Hice was left ’emotionally devastated by Mr. Lemon’s demeaning unprovoked and offensive assault’.
“A network rep said: ‘The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts.
“‘This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.’
“Hice, who was working as a bartender at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack at the time of the alleged assault, shut down his Twitter account just before filing his lawsuit.
“The registered Republican, who just two months prior admitted to injuring his then-girlfriend when he hurled his keys at her in a domestic dispute, claims that he ‘found it increasingly more difficult to continue working at The Old Stove or socializing at all in the Hamptons.’
“He also alleged that many at Murf’s would reference the incident when they saw him at the bar.
“‘After the incident, customers who came into The Old Stove or saw Plaintiff out about town cheekily ordered lemon drops and laughed at Plaintiff’s expense,’ wrote Hice’s lawyer.
“‘Plaintiff has suffered tremendously as a result of Mr. Lemon’s actions. Following this incident, Plaintiff found himself withdrawn from friends and family, suffered feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt,’ states the complaint.
“It adds: ‘Plaintiff found himself unable to sleep and at times, and suffered from suicidal ideations.
“‘Although Plaintiff, a religious man, tried to find solace within his faith and the church, to this day he continues to suffer emotionally, mentally, and personally from the incident.’
“He also said that he cannot return to New York to work, something the 38-year-old man had hoped to continue doing for years.
“Hice lists ‘assault and battery and both ‘intentional’ and negligent emotional distress’ as his three causes of action in the case.”
Hice reportedly demanded $1.5 million from Lemon before he filed the lawsuit and is seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering after he claimed that the alleged assault left him with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt.”
I have no idea if any of this is true but this is happening at the same time that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is embroiled in his “Fredo” debacle which did happen. A video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo went viral on Tuesday night that showed him threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs after the man called him “Fredo.”
“I thought that’s who you were,” the man said to Cuomo.
“No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo,” Cuomo responded. “My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN.”
“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo continued. “It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”
Cuomo later said, “You’re going to have a f***ing problem.”
The man responded, “What are you going to do about it?”
Cuomo responded: “I’ll f***ing ruin your shit. I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk.”
The video went viral with President Trump weighing in on it, tweeting: “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN”
When it rains it pours crap at CNN it would seem. So much for professionalism. This is CNN!
VIDEO: Students Sign Petition To Ban White Figure In ‘Walk’ Signals – It’s ‘Oppressive’
Well, we have officially reached ‘peak stupidity’ on campuses. It took some doing to be this moronic but these students are up to the challenge. Campus Reform has a video out where Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asks students at George Washington University if they’d be willing to sign a petition calling for banning the iconic white stick figure in “walk” signals because they are “oppressive.” Most of the students were more than happy to join the “inclusive” effort. So dumb it hurts.
This is the same university where students voted to “remove and replace” the university’s mascot, George the Colonial, which “is received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large” because it “glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” a petition calling for its removal claimed. The measure was passed in March by 54% of the students who voted. They should not be attending George Washington University then… in fact, they are not fit for higher education at all.
From The Daily Wire:
“In an attempt to test how deep concerns about “offense” and “oppression” go at GW, Campus Reform went undercover to the university to see if students would sign a new petition, this time calling for the banning of white stick figures in walk signals.
“As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” Campus Reform’s faux petition reads. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.” Students who sign the petition are supposedly letting the university know that they “vehemently urge the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”
“The result: many of the students and even one university faculty member are willing to put their signature on the phony petition. While some students seem to be on board because the alternatives provided by Campus Reform are “so cute” and “lit,” most in the video made a point of saying they can “absolutely” see how someone would be offended by the “white man” telling them what to do and felt that changing the sign helped promote “diversity.”
“One guy pushed back, however, saying he was “ideologically opposed” to the idea. Video below via Campus Reform:
“As for that petition calling for the replacement of George the Colonial, after declaring that the “negatively-charged figure of colonials has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” the students who signed it offered the university some alternatives, including “Hippos,” “Revolutionaries,” or “River horses.”‘
Hippos, y’all. Hippos.
I have never felt in the least oppressed by a white stick figure at a street crossing. Must be my white privilege showing. I have never been paralyzed by bone-chilling fear as a white iconic symbol tells me to get my butt across the street before I get hit by a car. What’s wrong with me? Like RedState says, “We’ve all been there.” Sheesh. Better yet, we can all just cross the street as we’ve always done and not get racist about a digital stick figure. Duh.
Only one student bucked the idea… just one. Bring on Sodom and Gomorrah.
My IQ drops just thinking about this idiocy. How college students devolved into such Marxist troglodytes is a question for the ages… or maybe just for American communists.
