Hanoi Jane claims Ivanka Trump “laughed” at her Global Warming nonsense… And?

Guest “And?” by David Middleton

From The Independent

And?

Jane Fonda has claimed Ivanka Trump “laughed” and then never contacted her again after she appealed for Donald Trump’s help in the fight against climate change.

Fonda was arrested five times in the winter of 2019 while protesting climate change in front of the White House…

[…]

“I actually called Jared, or whatever his name is, and I told him my idea and he said, ‘Well, Ivanka is the environmentalist in the family.’ Yeah, sure. So she called me and I told her my idea and she laughed and I never heard from her again.”

[…]

The Independent

And?

Pretend that Jane Fonda is the caller in this classic Frazier scene…

Hanoi Jane:

To woo Trump in her fight against climate change, Fonda hoped to recruit “four of the most beautiful, sexy, smart, climate-interested women” she could find, and meet with him and “kneel, plead and beg” for his support. She claimed both Pamela Anderson and Sharon Stone were on her wish list.

“We’ll tell him what needs to be done and what a serious crisis this is and we’ll tell him that he will be the world’s greatest hero, that kind of thing,” she remembered.

The Independent

Frazier:

[Jane], at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the tunneling electron microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. [Jane], if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn’t be able to locate my interest in your problem. Thank you for your call.

Jane Fonda was my favorite climate science perfesser after Al “the climate blimp” Gore, who also invented the internet, and before Greta “thundering” Thunder showed up.

Although Ms. Fonda’s politics do not impress me, I try not to pick on her too much because her mother committed suicide when she was only 12 years old in 1950. Yes, Fonda is really old.

The Frazier piece is just so right on.

So I’m sure if they saw this, they’d be saying, “Ahhhhh, thanks for that little bit of refreshment!”

The reason she laughed is because of their tactics. We’ll get a bunch of beautiful women to kneel, and plead, and beg. Then we’ll stroke his — ego. Yeah, that’ll work.

Ivanka knew better. They have this picture in their minds of what kind of bargaining tactics will work with him, and she knew they were completely wrong.

Back in the 1990-91 I was an instructor at SOMED (The Special Operations Medical course) at Ft. Sam Houston, TX. There were still Hanoi Jane urinal targets in many urinals there. The institutional memory of the Army can be long, especially in a place where there are a lot of vets still working. I have no doubt that Jane Fonda’s image holds the undisputed record for being on the largest number of urinal targets. I think you can still buy the things.

BTW, just what was it that she was proposing that “needs to be done,” and is so important that it will save the planet Earth? Surely she can tell everyone, if it’s that crucial, and not just wait for “four of the most beautiful, sexy, smart, climate-interested women” she could find, before she clued the rest of the world in on the secret. Maybe she’d get a better response? Or not, as the case may be.

But in any case, this is Hanoi Jane, and if I didn’t believe her opinions 50 years ago, why should I believe them now, since they’re undoubtedly the same lefty drivel they were then?

Jane and many others believe the Paris Climate thingy was about cutting CO2 emissions and saving the planet. They have never grasped that it was meant as a wealth transfer from the USA to other folks in less successful countries. The money is meant to go through the UN and be parceled out much reduced to other kleptocrats.
I doubt Jane, bless her little heart, and friends can understand this complex concept.

Actually McCain has always been a jerk who has only cared about himself. For years he was loved by the media because he could always be counted on to dump on his fellow Republicans. He was actually dumb enough to believe that he would continue to be loved by the media when he ran for president against a real Democrat.

Regardless, the troll prefers to believe the one anonymous person (assuming it wasn’t just the reporter making it up) who says what he wants to believe against almost 2 dozen eye witnesses.

And I want to hear what you say when Kelly opens up.

At least we know Kelly doesn’t lie like Cadet Bone Spurs.

Tom Abbott
Reply to  TL Winslow
September 11, 2020 3:07 pm

“Astounding that Fox News (TrumpTV) confirms the anonymous accusations!!!!!!”

Wrong!

Jennifer Griffin, the Fox News reporter you refer to, did not confirm that Trump called the troops losers.

What Jennifer Griffin confirmed was that Trump said of military people: “Why do they do what they do? They don’t get very much money”

Jennifer Griffin did confirm this statement. Trump has said it in public on more than one occasion, and in the presence of military people.

When Trump asks this question he wants the listener to think about what military people do. They have a hard, possible lethal job and they don’t get paid a lot of money to do it, so Trump wants you to realize that the troops are not doing it for the money, they are doing it for a higher purpose. Trump is praising the troops when he says this.

The problem occurs when you get leftwing reporters involved in interpreting what Trump means. His simple statement of admiration for the troops was turned into him disparaging the troops because they did a very hard job for little money so they must not be very smart.

But, of course, that’s not what Trump meant.

Here you go, TL:

https://justthenews.com/accountability/media/government-heavyweights-traveling-trump-2018-and-navy-foia-documents-rebut

On-the-record sources, paper trail rebut anonymous claims Trump disrespected American war dead

“After his article was published, Goldberg himself even admitted he believed the President’s account of why the cemetery trip was nixed.

“I’m sure all of those things are true,” Goldberg told CNN in an interview with CNN’s “New Day” on Friday after he was asked about an account from John Bolton, Trump’s former national security adviser. Bolton wrote in his recent book “The Room Where it Happened” (which is otherwise highly critical of Trump) about the helicopter trip being cancelled due to rain and the ground transportation options being curtailed due to traffic constraints that would be placed on the French people.”

end excerpt

Other than TL, does anyone think Trump is dumb enough to disparage Ameican troops in front of American military officers? It’s an absurd claim. The spat with McCain didn’t mean Trump disliked the military, it meant he disliked McCain. And for good reason, having nothing to do with McCain’s military service.

But I didn’t marry her because of that smile. I asked her to marry me because of what was behind that smile. I’ve stayed with her despite the frequent frowns. Because of what I saw behind both.
She loves God. So do I.

But prejudice like yours prevailed and not wanting to cause problems Rolland withdrew and Christian Chaplain gave that Eulogy. The Rabbi gave his for the Jewish denomination.

I was wondering if Jane thought she one of four.
So there at two things to laugh at, that Jane thought was one of four sexy women and idea that even if got four, that this would “work” on the President.
BUT I bet Trump would love to to tell the story.
Either way, so, “these 4 sexy women ask me to do something about climate, and obviously, I said yes”. Wait for crowd to laugh. Oh maybe, “There was 4 sexy women asking me to do something about climate, and said, I need 6 of most beautiful, sexy, smartest women to close the deal”.

Indeed. MarkW. Had she ever got as far as to ask them, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they laughed in her face as well regardless of where they happen to be on the pro-/anti- Trump spectrum. She’d have better luck getting fellow TDS suffering starlets like Alyssa Milano onboard her ridiculous idea. Still wouldn’t have work (Trump himself would likely laugh in their faces and then ridicule them on twitter!).

To woo Trump in her fight against climate change, Fonda hoped to recruit “four of the most beautiful, sexy, smart, climate-interested women” she could find, and meet with him and “kneel, plead and beg” for his support. She claimed both Pamela Anderson and Sharon Stone were on her wish list.

“We’ll tell him what needs to be done and what a serious crisis this is and we’ll tell him that he will be the world’s greatest hero, that kind of thing,” she remembered.

Dear Jane,
Neither Bill Clinton nor Joe Biden are President.
Such enticements will not effect policy.
Sincerely,

I remember hearing a story of her and then husband Ted Tuner buying a big property in Montana (maybe Wyoming?) and going into a local restaurant.
The owner was a Vietnam vet.
He refused them service.

California’s brilliant governor announced today that he has no patience with the “climate deniers”.
His state is burning down and it’s all because of climate change.

Don’t be too harsh on the folks who have swallowed the climate koolaid wholesale.

I read something once that stuck with me. A Vietnamese farmer was being interviewed as to what he thought about the effectiveness of North Vietnamese propaganda. These were the commies, the guys who won the war, who still sit and govern in Hanoi today. This peasant said, the first time you hear the propaganda, you don’t necessarily believe it or even pay much attention. But after you’ve been forced to listen to it a thousand times, some of it starts to stick in your brain…

Towns in communist countries used to have loudspeakers mounted on the telephone poles, blaring out propaganda all day long.

What I’m getting at is the relentless daily propaganda and gaslighting of these climate clowns has had and is having major effects. We here may be immune, but many aren’t.

We all know life’s a bit of a struggle from time to time but lefties make a pathological art form out of it. It’s impossible to diagnose any particular cause but the common thread is everybody else paying dearly for the cure of their affliction.

I made a note of this comment by Stephen McIntyre …

“Let’s give credit where credit is due. As a scientist, Jane Fonda may well rank among the top 1% of US climate scientists.

A lesser known fact about Michael Mann’s career, according to anonymous officials, is that Jane Fonda was asked to be co-author of the original Hockey Stick article in order to enhance intellectual reputation and H-factor but the deal fell apart when she insisted on being the lead author.

Scholars regret Fonda’s ultimate non-participation in the Hockey Stick article. They believe that her statistical acumen, while not overwhelming, would have supplied perspective and skills that were lacking in the remaining co-authors.”

BRUTAL!

It must be the silly season of climate change or something? Here we have Jane Anarchy Funder telling us some one laughed at her? Well when you find someone who doesn’t laugh at her come tell us. Then in the Telegraph yesterday, they rolled out another crusty old biddy a nobody called Bianca Shagger or some such name, to say the XR people were right to protest but it’s not a good idea to block off press distribution, because you have to convince people of things.
Time to bring out another of those eminent, man made climate change spokespersons someone with years of knowledge and understanding about the subject, someone who couldn’t concentrate at school so dropped out at 13 all those long years back, well about four years back actually. Bring on Greta to give the world the full extent of her vast climate change wisdom, go on, “Dare You”.

La Fondue has just been given a soft rant as much as you like interview on BBC morning radio telling us it is all worse than we thought followed immediately by a typical BBC scare story threatening us with West Antarctic melting and a “glacier” responsible for 5 per cent of sea level rise. There seems to be no effort to explain the difference between glaciers and ice shelf to aid the scare element of the story – still less any context about overall Antarctic ice.

News management at its most deceitful and so BBC .

Their new DG is determined to save them, but they have immediately made it clear that they are having none of it. The govt. has described decriminalizing the Licence fee as a “done deal”, if the the Beeb apparatchiks aren’t careful they will throw in “and you only need one if you watch the BBC”. And that would be good.

Okay, look: Jane Fonda does nudity in Barbarella. Okay? Get a hold of the DVD and watch it, and you’ll see what I mean. I’m not putting up with you guys putting her down. Just don’t do it.

She wants to get Sharon Stone and Melanie Griffiths to kneel before Donald Trump in a effort to convince him of the seriousness of her point of view. Now I respect that in women, even if you people don’t.

She won an Oscar. Doesn’t that mean anything any more? And look how good she looks, in spite of never having had plastic surgery. You people better couth up. I’m telling you.

Just because most straight guys would be happy to watch young Jane take off her cloths doesn’t mean what old Jane has to say about climate or anything else is of any value. And trust me, most of us guys that would enjoy watching Barbarella for those scenes would not want to watch Jane re-enacting those scenes today, as ageist as that may be.

She won an Oscar. Doesn’t that mean anything any more?

Oscars meaning anything? Bwahahahahahaha.

I could tolerate a great deal more of this climate change tripe if nuclear energy innovation and research had not been “frozen” 50 years ago… by Jane and her ilk.

Never cared about the Hanoi Jane thing. Okay so a young airhead toured ‘Nam surrounded by men with guns and failed (even if it had been within her) to denounce them in their own press delivering some hypothetical speech that every “Hanoi Jane” accuser has constructed from hindsight, in their own mind.

Nuclear powered grids are the only thing that could prevent breakdown and (ultimately) cannibalism. Every utopian energy dream begins in a world where the large portion of “unsustainable” urban population has obliged everyone kindly by being already dead. After a grid down crash/reset urban populations would be on the move eating food warehouses -> farm animals -> farmers -> prairie survivalists -> mountain survivalists -> each other.

The Cannibal Army were such an unsolvable problem — with their self-sustaining marches across the countryside eating locals and people they had overtaken the road, the sheer numbers… in the book “Lucifer’s Hammer” by Pournelle/Niven the defenders have to channel the horror of WWI and resort to chlorine gas to even the score.

I spent years trying to argue the technical points and energy density. Now I’m exhausted and just tell the young, “Nuclear Energy or Cannibalism: your choice. Choose quickly.”

https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/msnbc-s-joy-reid-apologizes-insensitive-lgbt-blog-posts-n826091

MSNBC host Joy Reid issued an apology on Sunday for a series of blog posts nearly a decade ago, mostly critical of former Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida, that have been criticized as homophobic and “anti-gay.”

And voilà with a few empty words, Joy Reid gets off the sh*thole.

Joy Reid was not “cancelled”, not never called for that by MSNBC. Not even a small sanction. She could even drag in her mud the liberal’s darling “Wayback Machine”/”The Internet Archive” archive.org and c u c k s liberals didn’t even try to defend that Website.

https://theintercept.com/2018/04/24/msnbcs-joy-reid-claims-her-website-was-hacked-and-bigoted-anti-lgbt-content-added-a-bizarre-story-liberal-outlets-ignore/

The “Wayback Machine” – and other archiving sites, there are a few alternatives – are very important for many people. They keep the media, other publishers, and customer services honest by making evident that news articles, other published content and TOS pages existed previously in some state that may be different from the later state. Trying to discredit it was reckless, arrogant, irresponsible and I think evil. But the left has mostly forgotten or doesn’t even realize the implication of doing that.
