I Want To Be Excited for the Upcoming Matrix Film…But – RedState

My fellow millennials grew up in the era before everything was a reboot and thanks to the improvements to CGI, new and entertainment concepts were being created and displayed, making us look at the world in ways that were mind-blowing.

One such film was “The Matrix,” a sci-fi film that was equal parts action-thriller, philosophical discussion generator, and paranoia creator. The concept of the movie was so cool that it had some teenagers in my school buying black clothing and abnormally long jackets.

I’d laugh at them, but I bought a black peacoat after I watched Boondock Saints for the first time, and it’s still my preferred jacket to this day, but I digress.

For those of you who haven’t seen it or don’t care to, this six-minute rundown fo the entire trilogy will catch you up on the story so far. Obviously, spoilers are ahead.

The original Matrix film was followed up by two sequels that were, frankly, okay at best. Regardless, Matrix-mania had seized America. Even today, aspects of the film are quoted or referenced in everything from explanations of weird events to political discussions, the most popular one describing those who break away from leftist ideals as being “red-pilled.”

The cultural impact of “The Matrix” can’t be denied.

Like many, the announcement of a 4th Matrix film initially excited me. While I think the third film wrapped up the story quite nicely, a dive back into the world of programmed reality seemed like a fun idea and, to be honest, anything with Keanu Reeves in it automatically gets my attention. However, after the initial excitement faded, a very real reality settled in for me, and very much so for others as well.

A lot of it revolves around the age we live in, and the rest of it revolves around the creators of Matrix is itself.

For one, we live in a sea of revamps and reboots, most of which are disappointing at best. Few reboots actually come out carrying the same magic they once did. In fact, in my personal memory, the only reboots that had me applauding were Blade Runner 2049 and Mad Max Fury Road. Your mileage may vary.

A lot of it boils down to the current state of our culture. We live in a very intolerant time, especially in the entertainment industry. If the cast, crew, writers, and messaging don’t lean to the left, then the film has to go. If it glorifies the military or separates from the politics du jour, then it’s evil and must be cast out. I’ve commented on this very subject over the course of my career so much that I’ve forgotten about many of the articles I’ve written up to this point.

What’s more, our culture war is currently obsessed with a number of things including race and gender diversity. Every movie now has to have a powerful female character who is just as good, if not better, than a male protagonist. Every movie, comic, or video game must now also contain a diverse cast of characters, and some creations even contain gender swaps of classic characters or all-female reboots. Also, more and more, we’re also starting to see the presence of anti-masculine or transgender men. These are male characters who act flamboyantly feminine and wear heavy makeup and women’s clothing.

To be clear, diversity in media isn’t necessarily a bad thing by itself, but it becomes ridiculous when it’s clearly shoehorned in for box-checking reasons. For instance, you’re not going to see many black people in stories about medieval Europe or tales involving Vikings, yet if they don’t contain black actors they consider the creators racist for not being “inclusive.”

But it goes to show that politics has taken a front seat and the story must now revolve around it. The message comes before the story.

This brings me to the real reason my excitement about the fourth Matrix film has been greatly watered down; the creators.

The Matrix universe and film trilogy was created by the Wachowski brothers, Laurence and Paul, who would later come out as transgender and identify as Lana and Lilly respectively. At some point, Lilly said in a speech at the GLAAD Media awards that looking back through the lens of their transgenderism, the Matrix was about transgenderism all along.

“There’s a critical eye being cast back on Lana and I’s work through the lens of our transness. This is a cool thing because it’s an excellent reminder that art is never static. And while the ideas of identity and transformation are critical components in our work, the bedrock that all ideas rest upon is love,” said Wachowski.

In one fell swoop, a film trilogy about questioning the lens through which you perceive the world and how that makes you define what is “real” became narrowed down to an allegory about transgenderism. To be clear, the Wachowski’s never said your interpretation was wrong, at least to my knowledge, but here’s the kicker…

Lana Wachowski, who is soloing the movie without Lilly, is making this movie with transgenderism in full swing both in personal life and cultural trend. Again, it’s a time when the message comes before the story and Wachowski effectively has been told by the body politic and socio-political climate to put the pedal to the metal. One has to ask what kind of movie that will give us.

I want to be proven wrong, but based on the continuous string of disappointments and consistent political pandering, I’m not putting money on the film evoking the same level of awe and wonder the universe did before. I predict this entry will make the series smaller, not more expansive, as narratives and messaging take center stage. I predict this movie will make critics and media applaud with high ratings and fawning media coverage thanks to the transgenderism of its creator and messaging within.

But I suspect the audience will think differently. I can’t help but expect low scores from regular viewers on sites like Rotten Tomatoes, each complaining about the same thing; a middling film that leans too much into the ideologically leftist territory and the neutering of certain characters in order to uplift other less-deserving characters there to check boxes.

Again, I really want to be wrong here and will be the most thrilled if my worries just turn out to be paranoia, but sadly my worries don’t come from a vacuum. Modern culture has taught me and everyone else to be wary. We know how this story goes now. A reboot hits all the modern cultural notes, fans get upset at the bastardization of the stories we grew up with, and then we’re labeled as evil in some capacity for not liking it.

On that day, I predict I’ll be one of many holding the corpse of a once-great story and saying “not like this.”

September 4, 2021

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Oscar De La Hoya is hospitalized with a COVID-19 infection and has withdrawn from his fight next weekend in Los Angeles, the 48-year-old said in a video shot from a hospital bed and posted to social media on Friday.

The Sept. 11 fight against former UFC champion Vitor Belfort would have marked the Hall of Fame boxer’s return to the ring for the first time since 2008.

De La Hoya said he was fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before contracting the virus.

“What are the chances of me getting COVID?” an exhausted looking De La Hoya said in a brief video.

“I’ve been taking care of myself and this really, really kicked my ass.”

De La Hoya thanked his fans for their support as he has worked toward the comeback and said he expects to return to the ring “before the year is up.”

Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, 58, has reportedly agreed to step in and face Belfort, although it is unclear whether the Triller Fight Club pay-per-view fight will be held in Los Angeles or move to Florida.

Holyfield’s last fight was in 2011, a TKO victory over Brian Nielsen.

De La Hoya’s last professional fight was a loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2008.

Boxing’s ‘Golden Boy’ Oscar De La Hoya hospitalized with Covid; forced to cancel upcoming fight

“The Golden Boy” of boxing, Oscar De La Hoya, has been hospitalized with breakthrough Covid-19, he announced Friday on social media. 

“I mean, what are the chances of me getting Covid? I’ve been taking care of myself and this really, really kicked my a–,” the 48-year-old Hall of Fame fighter said in a video from his hospital bed.

After 13 years away from boxing, De La Hoya was scheduled to fight former UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) champ Vitor Belfort on September 11 in Los Angeles, but has had to withdraw due to Covid. He has been replaced in that fight by 58-year-old former Heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield, according to ESPN.

“Preparing for this comeback has been everything to me over the last months, and I want to thank everyone for their tremendous support,” De La Hoya said in a statement accompanying the video. “I am currently in the hospital getting treatment and am confident I will be back in the ring before the year is up. God bless everyone and stay safe.” 

De La Hoya has won 10 world titles in six different weight classes, according to NBC News. “His last professional fight was a loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2008. The fighter retired the following year.”

RCMP union concerned over enforcement of upcoming B.C. COVID-19 vaccine card

Article content

The national union representing RCMP officers says it’s concerned about recent statements by British Columbia’s premier regarding police enforcement of the province’s COVID-19 vaccine card system set to take effect Sept. 13.

In response to B.C. businesses expressing concern for staff who may encounter would-be patrons who refuse to show the requisite proof of immunization, Premier John Horgan said recently they could call law enforcement to handle the situation.

But Brian Sauve, president of the National Police Federation, says Mounties in B.C. are being called on to do more and more, and they cannot continue to effectively respond to rising calls without additional officers, resources and funding.

Article content

He says in a statement that more than 650 members of the provincial RCMP have been deployed in response to wildfires, pulling them away from day-to-day roles.

Sauve says others have been involved in the ongoing enforcement of a court injunction against old-growth logging protests on southern Vancouver Island.

The provincial government could not immediately be reached for comment.

The province’s COVID-19 vaccine card program is set to launch in two weeks, starting with proof of at least one dose by Sept. 13 and two doses by Oct. 24 in order for people to access a range of indoor social and recreational events.

Sauve said it’s “critically important that government properly fund both local and provincial policing to ensure the ongoing safety and well-being of British Columbians.”

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Aug. 30, 2021.

Amid Upcoming Hurdles, Biden Touts Advancement Of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

President Joe Biden praised the Senate passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill during remarks Tuesday – despite the bill facing upcoming hurdles in the House.

The $1.2 trillion bill passed with a 69-30 vote in the Senate and garnered support from 19 Republican lawmakers. Biden thanked lawmakers for working “in a bipartisan manner” and declared that the country is “on the cusp of an infrastructure decade,” holding up the bill as one that will “transform America.”

“A historic investment in the nations roads and highways, bridges and transit,” Biden said. “And our drinking water systems and broadband, clean energy, environmental cleanup. And making infrastructure more resilient and the climate crisis much more in our minds in how do we deal with it.”

“You know, we’re poised once again – and I mean this in a literal sense – to make the same kind of historic investments that have so often made it possible for America to build the future and allow us to outcompete the rest of the world,” Biden continued.

WATCH:

The president said this infrastructure bill “invests in America itself” and highlighted the “overwhelming support” it received by the Senate. He said the proposal will create “millions of good union jobs” around the country.

“America. America, this is how we truly build back better,” Biden said. “This bill’s gonna put people to work, modernizing our roads and our highways and our bridges so commuters and truckers don’t lose time in traffic, saving billions of dollars nationally.”

The president continued to highlight portions of the bill, mentioning clean water, available and affordable internet, and more. He also said that the July jobs report indicates the “economy is recovering at a record rate.” The report indicated 943,000 added jobs and a fall to 5.4% for the unemployment rate.

“This bill shows that we can work together. I know a lot of people – some sitting in the audience here – that didn’t think this could happen,” Biden said, noting that bipartisanship was “characterized as a relic of an earlier age.”

“As you may well remember, I never believed that. I still don’t,” the president said, once again thanking the various senators and particularly expressing gratitude towards the Republicans who backed it.

Biden briefly mentioned the uphill battle the bill still faces, declaring the “work is far from over.” He noted the bill has to go through the House and expressed optimism that he’ll be able to win “its approval.”

WATCH:

The president’s biggest battle yet, however, may involve his own party, as progressive Democrats – including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – have vowed to hold the bill until the Senate passes a separate, larger and more partisan reconciliation bill.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended Pelosi’s decision to sit on the infrastructure bill, even as the administration presses how important it is to get passed. Psaki told reporters Tuesday that the administration is “confident and comfortable” with Pelosi’s decision. (RELATED: Jen Psaki Says ‘Never Doubt Speaker Pelosi In Anything She Says’ When Asked About COVID-19 Relief Package Timeline)

“Well, these are vital because they are long overdue, and it’s important to modernize our infrastructure and make sure kids have access to clean drinking water,” Psaki explained. “It’s also designed as a plan that would be implemented over the course of eight years.”

Republican lawmakers are not fans of the second infrastructure package. Some Democratic lawmakers, like West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Krysten Sinema, have also expressed concern over the bill’s large cost and what it might do to the economy, CNBC reported.

‘Jackass’ Creator Bam Margera Sues To Stop Release Of Upcoming Movie After Being Fired From Film

“Jackass” creator Bam Margera sued to stop the release of an upcoming movie in the franchise after he said he was illegally fired from the film “Jackass Forever.”

The 41-year-old TV personality filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against Paramount, producer Spike Jonze, director Jeffrey Tremaine and co-star Johnny Knoxville, claiming he was wrongfully fired from the franchise’s fourth film, seeking millions in compensations, NBC News reported in a piece published on Monday. (RELATED: ‘So Grateful’: Steve-O Celebrates 13 Years Of Sobriety With Then-And-Now Photo)

In the suit, Margera alleges that Knoxville, Jonze and Tremaine visited him unexpectedly at a drug rehabilitation center in 2019 where the three allegedly “accosted him and coerced him” into signing a “wellness agreement” that required him to take drug tests to remain involved in “Jackass” productions. (RELATED: Superstar Bam Margera Arrested After Leaving Rehab)

Bam said in his suit he was terminated after a drug test showed he was taking prescription Adderall something the “defendants knew” he had to take to “treat his attention deficit disorder” as he had been doing for “several years.”

“Margera was the only ‘Jackass’ co-star terminated from the franchise for taking medication that he was prescribed, in order to treat his well-documented medical conditions,” the suit added, according to the outlet.

“I am pissed-off, angry, hurt, and shattered that … the studios and producers ripped off my creativity, content, and stunts to make this movie, fired me without justification, and refuse to pay for my work; I created this franchise before any of these guys ever got involved,” Bam shared in a statement from his attorney.

Chuck Todd Thanks Cuomo for Making Upcoming Elections Easier on Dems

Late last month, NBC political director Chuck Todd threw his usual hissy fit when addressing the topic of liberal bias in the media during an interview with The Verge. But in the wake of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) surprise resignation on Tuesday, Todd thanked the governor for making upcoming elections easier for Democrats and for not dragging New York Democrats through an impeachment process. He even hyped the idea that Cuomo could return to office in as little as three years.

Todd launched into his praise for Cuomo on NBC Nightly News after anchor Lester Holt asked him, “what does this mean for the Democratic Party in New York and nationally?” “Well, it’s a big sigh of relief both for Democrats in New York and for Democrats nationally. Cuomo a national brand name. He had the ability to drag this out,” he replied.

He went on to warn that Cuomo had the ability to be an albatross around the necks of Democrats in the midterms if he had tried to stay and fight. “It could have sullied Democrats up and down the ballot, could have cost them a couple of House seats, which could cost them control of Congress,” Todd said.

And he was clearly relieved, praising Cuomo for putting “the party before himself.” “And now the Democrats have the rest of this calendar year to regroup. So, while he’s not been an asset to the Democratic Party for a year, on this move he actually helped the party and put the party before himself,” Todd touted.

 

 

Earlier in the day, Todd was speaking to MSNBC host and Democratic Party fan girl, Andrea Mitchell and suggested that Cuomo could return to politics relatively quickly.

“The resignation gives him – we know the way our world works. It’s amazing. The people we’ve seen make political comebacks. You can’t ever rule it out,” he opined. “And I think he realized he could become a pariah in the Democratic Party for sticking it out and fighting…”

According to him, some Democrats in the State Assembly might be thankful for Cuomo as he’s ridding them of having to go through an impeachment process. “There was a whole bunch of Assembly Democrats that didn’t want to go through this process, didn’t want to have to go through this. There’s a lot of congressional Democrats that are glad he did this,” he argued.

Looking into the future, Todd told Mitchell to expect Cuomo to attempt a comeback in three to five years since political life was all he really knew:

So, he eventually did something that maybe over time will at least give him an opening to maybe, oh, not be a full pariah in the party say in three years, four years, five years. I’m not saying this is about the next year or two, but think about what Andrew Cuomo’s done his whole life. He’s been basically a professional politician his whole life, either working on campaigns for his father, working in the administration – Clinton administration, or running for office himself. This is all he’s known. What would he do without the ability to run for office?

“So, look, I expect in my lifetime, Andrew Cuomo to probably run for office again. What that office is, I don’t know, but that’s what this resignation tells me today,” Todd predicted.

Chuck Todd’s relief for Democratic Party election prospects on NBC Nightly News was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Liberty Mutual and Flonase. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.

ANDREA MITCHELL: So, Chuck, this is a big national story. Andrew Cuomo could have been a presidential candidate down the road. And who knows, as you point out, whether this is going be rising from the Phoenix later on, but this is really his only alternative given how united the Assembly was against him.

CHUCK TODD: His career was either permanently over or almost permanently over. And he chose the path of almost permanently over. Right? The resignation gives him – we know the way our world works. It’s amazing. The people we’ve seen make political comebacks. You can’t ever rule it out.

And I think he realized he could become a pariah in the Democratic Party for sticking it out and fighting or he can – not saying he will generate good will, but I promise you, there’s a whole bunch of state assembly members that are relieved. Right? There was a whole bunch of Assembly Democrats that didn’t want to go through this process, didn’t want to have to go through this. There’s a lot of congressional Democrats that are glad he did this.

So, he eventually did something that maybe over time will at least give him an opening to maybe, oh, not be a full pariah in the party say in three years, four years, five years.

LESTER HOLT: Let’s bring in our political director and moderator of Meet the Press, Chuck Todd. Chuck, what does this mean for the Democratic Party in New York and nationally?

CHUCK TODD: Well, it’s a big sigh of relief both for Democrats in New York and for Democrats nationally. Cuomo a national brand name. He had the ability to drag this out. It could have sullied Democrats up and down the ballot, could have cost them a couple of House seats, which could cost them control of Congress.

Mike Lindell’s Interview With CNN Offers Advert for Upcoming Cyber Symposium

AP Images
Mike Lindell

Mike Lindell, the famous evangelical entrepreneur and inventor and founder of My Pillow, a pillow and sheets manufacturing company, has vehemently maintained that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from former president Donald Trump, and last week seemed to walk willingly into a well-laid trap by CNN, granting the leftist network a two-hour-long interview, of which less than 12 minutes were aired on the Anderson Cooper 360° show on August 6.

Since its release last week, the antagonistic exchange between Lindell and CNN reporter Drew Griffin has received more than a million views on YouTube. Lindell’s interview comes just days before his “Cyber Symposium: A Data Analysis of the November 2020 Election” is held August 10-12, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

That invitation-only, two-day event, which will be live-streamed to the public, is set to feature cyberexperts on panels from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00.p.m. daily. Names of presenters were not included in the agenda sent to attendees, but program notes mention access to a Cyber Center Kiosk and Mock Election Room, as well as the opportunity to meet with cyber experts from regions across the country and to network with state leaders.

The New American will have a team reporting from the conference, providing interviews with panelists to be published on the TNA website.

“The entire purpose [of the symposium],” read the agenda, “is to reveal and discuss the cyber data packet captured from the November 2020 election.”

Seemingly having captured only a snapshot of that data, CNN anchor Cooper launched a vicious attack against Lindell during the opening of his show last week, dismissing Lindell’s claims that China hacked the 2020 presidential election, switching millions of votes from former president Donald Trump to Joe Biden.

Yet despite missing context from his reporting — allegedly Lindell spent more than two hours with CNN, though the interview that aired was under 15 minutes — Cooper produced a few solid facts, specifically that “Lindell is not backing down, even as he faces a lawsuit from voting machine maker Dominion, alleging he’s defamed the company with his false accusations, and Lindell’s company is counter-suing.”  

For CNN, Lindell’s accusations “threaten democracy” and are “complete nonsense.” The outlet cited two dozen election officials and cyber-experts contacted by CNN to investigate Lindell’s claims. Griffin, interviewing Lindell in his home state of Minnesota, pressed the My Pillow CEO for the “absolute proof” that the election was stolen, something Lindell has repeatedly said he has, “100 percent.”

In the final interview — Lindell later told Steve Bannon on the War Room that he taped the full two-hour-plus conversation — Lindell points to what appear to be screenshots of billions of computerized strings of data from the election, which Lindell said contain time stamps of when the fraud occurred and flipped the vote from Trump to Biden.

To average viewers, however, the data is impossible to comprehend, and, unfortunately, Lindell does not provide any explanation as to what it all means. His symposium promises to provide the answers.

While CNN “fact-checkers” argued that Lindell’s evidence is “nothing but publicly available voting data,” Lindell fired back that the fact-checkers were wrong. “You didn’t hire a cyber-expert,” he said.  

According to CNN, all of the 15 counties, where Lindell has argued in several lawsuits that the vote hacking occurred, used paper ballots and Dominion ballot-scanning machines that were never connected to the Internet.

However, in Delta County, Michigan, where Lindell says more than 3,000 votes were switched from Trump to Biden, reporter Griffin and a Republican Delta County clerk are seen in the interview video standing over a Dominion machine handling two “digital storage cards that keep a running tally of the votes.”

The cartridges are shown to be easily taken in and out of the machine, raising the question of how easily they could have been compromised, either digitally or manually.

The Delta County clerk maintained that the county conducted three election audits, and that after every count, the paper ballots perfectly matched the scanned ballots. Even Michigan’s Republican-led Senate did an investigation, which CNN claims resulted in “no evidence of widespread or systemic fraud.”

Lindell believes the votes can be (and were) hacked after they are tabulated, and that the observations of county officials who claim there was no fraud could be “misconstrued because they don’t realize what happened.”

For CNN, Lindell is a serious threat, who “mistakenly or deliberately [is] destroying the confidence in the legitimately elected president of the United States and fostering what could be real damage.”

That same day, in an interview including Lindell, Republican politician Raynard Jackson, lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and People’s Pundit Daily editor Richard Baris, War Room host Steve Bannon asked Lindell if his data has been checked enough, and if he gave CNN raw data.

“We kept going round and round because they kept lying and kept trying to twist things,” Lindell told Bannon. “But let’s give them credit, at least they are one step above Fox because Fox won’t even talk, let’s not forget that.”

Lindell quipped that the CNN interview was an advertisement for what people will discover at the symposium this week, and that he presented the outlet with new evidence, which they didn’t show in the final broadcast. “They minimized it [the evidence], they’re lying, they wanted to get out of it, out of the attempt to discredit [me],” he said.  

Lindell has promised a prize of $5 million to anyone who can prove him wrong.

“That’s why we’re having the symposium…. I’ve hired people from everywhere, and now we have a whole other group that’s going to be looking at it, to validate, validate, validate.”

Biden and other White House officials were invited to Lindell’s event, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reportedly unable to attend owing to a scheduling conflict.

Said Lindell, “This isn’t about the Democrats…. This is about China attacking our country. We’ve jumped right over socialism to communism, they’re [CNN is] trying to play me over the Democrats. But no, this is all of us as a country…. Remember we have an enemy here, and they’re going to say, wow, they [China] took our country without pulling a trigger.”

Lindell’s Cyber Symposium will be livestreamed nonstop for 72 hours on FrankSpeech.com.
