Robert Redford believes Trump’s presidency is a monarchy and he’s “deeply disturbed”

As we get closer to 2020, the unhinged demorats are letting their imaginations run super wild.

Since President Trump was elected, they have vowed to remove him from office. Three years later, with impeachment proceedings that aren’t moving fast enough for them; the left are in panic mode.

Imagine having a scab for three years that will not heal nor can you scratch it or remove it. The daily pain and reminder of your ailment eats away at your every move. Your misery consumes every thought and transfers into delusional thoughts that demorat-loving media gladly promote.

Such must be the case for TDS-infected actor Robert Redford.

He’s written an opinion piece for NBC News on their new platform called, “THINK.”

THINK is NBC News op-eds, in depth analyses and essays about news and current events. They say you can find opinions that will make you think differently and deeply about the world and our place in it.

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I perused THINK and found it is mostly full of progressive narratives. Appears their only goal is to help elect a demorat president in 2020. Would you expect anything less from a network that intentionally killed Ronan Farrow’s story on Clinton buddy and predator Weinstein?

Now THINK has given Redford a platform to whine about dictator-like President Trump and the “crisis” we are up against. He blathers on about how President Trump is single-handedly threatening the sacred rule of law, our essential freedom of the press and our precious freedoms of speech.

Somehow he manages to get through his diatribe without stating one piece of evidence.

Read his whole opinion piece here.

At the end, Redford desires for us to rededicate ourselves to voting for truth, character and integrity in our representatives (no matter which side we’re on).

Hard pass. If I want to educate myself on “truth,” “character” and “integrity,” it won’t be coming from NBC News or hypocrite Redford.

Sundance co-founder sentenced to six years in child sex abuse case

Pervert Sterling Van Wagen

From Hollywood Reporter: A filmmaker who co-founded the Sundance Film Festival and produced a movie whose lead actress won an Oscar in the mid-1980s was sentenced Tuesday to at least six years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual abuse of a child.

The judge who delivered the sentence of six years to life said that he hopes the parole board will keep 72-year-old Sterling Van Wagenen in prison longer than the minimum.

Judge Robert Griffin commended the young victim for reporting what happened. Prosecutors say Van Wagenen touched a young girl on two occasions between 2013 and 2015.

“You did the right thing and you’re not responsible for anything that happened and anything that will happen,” said Griffin during the hearing south of Salt Lake City. “You’re a brave young lady.”

The sister of the victim, whose name the Associated Press is withholding because she is a victim of sexual abuse, read a letter on her sister’s behalf blasting Van Wagenen for lying and being a coward.
“I strongly believe the only thing you were actually torn up about is the fact that you got caught,” the sister said.

Van Wagenen declined to apologize when he spoke to the victim and her family. “It’s clear that any kind of apology I can make is meaningless at this point,” Van Wagenen said. “So I am not even going to attempt one. I want you all to know I feel the consequences of what I’ve done. I feel them deeply.”

He pleaded guilty earlier this year to two counts of sexual abuse of a child, both involving the same victim, as part of a plea deal.

Van Wagenen co-founded a Utah film festival that came to be known as Sundance Film Festival with Robert Redford and was the Sundance Institute’s founding executive director, but hasn’t been with the organization for more than 20 years.

He was a producer on the 1985 film The Trip to Bountiful, a story of an elderly woman who longs to return to her home that earned the late actress Geraldine Page an Academy Award.

Van Wagenen has worked over the years as a film instructor at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University and as a director and producer for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on a variety of projects, including temple videos.

He resigned from his part-time instructor position at the University of Utah’s Film and Media Arts Department on Feb. 15, university spokesman Chris Nelson said.

Van Wagenen’s resignation came after a man accused Van Wagenen of molesting him as a boy in 1993. No charges were filed in that case, which was made public by a website that serves as a watchdog for The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints, widely known as the Mormon church.

Van Wagenen thanked that man, who was in court Tuesday, saying it was a “blessing” that he brought “this all to light.”

Sundance Film Festival co-founder pleads guilty to child sex abuse

Pervert Sterling Van Wagenen

From Hollywood Reporter: A filmmaker who co-founded the Sundance Film Festival and produced an Oscar-winning movie in the mid-1980s pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexual abuse of a child.

Sterling Van Wagenen, 71, entered the plea as part of an agreement that includes a sentence of six years to life. He plans to plead guilty to a second charge involving the same victim later this week, his attorney Steven Shapiro said.

Van Wagenen’s acceptance of the plea deal was a surprise, given that he had just been charged earlier this month and it came during his first court appearance. Shapiro said his client decided to waive his right to other hearings to resolve the case quickly and avoid further harm to his family.

Van Wagenen wanted to “acknowledge wrongful conduct,” Shapiro said.

Prosecutors charged Van Wagenen with inappropriately touching a girl between the ages of 7 and 9 on two occasions between 2013 and 2015 in two northern Utah cities. He is scheduled to be formally sentenced on July 2.

Van Wagenen co-founded a Utah film festival that came to be known as Sundance Film Festival with Robert Redford and was the Sundance Institute’s founding executive director, but hasn’t been with the organization for more than two decades.

He was a producer on the 1985 film The Trip to Bountiful, a story of an elderly woman who longs to return to her home that earned the late actress Geraldine Page an Academy Award for her starring performance.

Van Wagenen has worked over the years as a film instructor at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University and as a director and producer for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on a variety of projects, including temple videos.

He resigned from his part-time instructor position at the University of Utah’s Film and Media Arts Department on Feb. 15 after being put on administrative leave on Feb. 5, university spokesman Chris Nelson said.

Van Wagenen’s resignation came after a man came forward to accuse Van Wagenen of molesting him as a boy in 1993. No charges have been filed in that case, which was made public by a website that serves as a watchdog for The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints, widely known as the Mormon Church.

Van Wagenen was the executive director of the 2018 historical tale Jane and Emma about a black woman’s friendship with the wife of Joseph Smith, the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
