  • White House 2012’s Cinema Politico:  This week’s feature presentation comes from C-Span and it takes us back to very different America, the pre 9/11 America.

Tonight’s Cinema Political feature film is only for the most discerning of political junkies.  It is a look back at how the Republican presidential candidates and how they fought for the Republican nomination back in 2000, when there was no incumbent and the field was wide open.  Political observers will not be able to avoid how much of the debate back then is similar to the debate today.  That despite what we now realize was a much more innocent and different America than we live in today.  One of the most striking remarks comes from Utah Senator Orin Hatch who during the debate made a very Nostradamus-like prediction and actually warned us about Osama bin Laden.Bookmark and Share

Trunkline 2012: Saturday Political News in Review and the Cinema Politico Movie of the Week 11/05/11

Bookmark and ShareSaturdays edition of Trunkline reveals standout performances at Iowa’s Reagan Day Dinner, Scott Brown delivery of the weekly republican radio address, Mark Levin’s rousing Defending the Dream speech at the AFP conference, the top 10 Joe Bidenisms, Romney’s plan to cut $500 billion from the federal budget, and this week’s Cinema Politico Saturday night movie feature.

Doris “Granny D” Haddock was the nation’s oldest political newcomer. At 90, she laced up her sneakers and walked across America to rally against the influence of big money in elections-making both friends and enemies inside the Washington beltway. At 94, still fed up with politics as usual, she jumped at an unexpected chance to run for U.S. Senate. With just four months until Election Day, Doris and her motley crew of political aces and amateurs craft a feisty campaign that personifies her democratic ideals of a government of, by and for the people.   This flick is largely promo for a liberal agenda that tries to exploit a 94 year old woman by pulling at your heart strings, but if you keep that in mind, its an interesting political profile.

This slightly comedic romance details the relationship between two people on the opposite ends of the political spectrum. Taking place during the course of the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City, a Republican man meets back up with a Liberal woman he knew in college. The two begin to fall in love, even though they each have trouble reconciling this new personal passion with their political passion. The tension each feels is exacerbated when a friend of the young woman reveals that he is going to be in apposition to disrupt the President’s speech at the convention. The film was shot on location during the actual 2004 Republican Convention, leading to the arrest of some of the filmmakers when they ended up capturing some of their footage without permission.  The flick really isn’t that good, but its different and if you’re reading this site, you’re probably the type who can’t pass up a movie dealing with politics, the Republican National Convention and a conservative vs. liberal ideological clash.

It stars, Matthew Mabe, Woodwyn Koons, Alek Friedman, Alicia Harding, and  Jennifer Brown.

This film tells the unbelievable story of the Weathermen. The group of 1970’s radicals, fueled by outrage over the Vietnam War and racism in America, went underground throughout much of the decade to wage a grassroots war against the government.  Who knew that four decades later, some of the anti-American, domestic terrorists featured in this film would be supporters and friends of an American President.   Watch this intense documentary and learn all about Bill Ayers, the Chicago radical who held fundraisers in his home with and for President Obama.
