Actor Tom Hanks’ blood used to develop coronavirus vaccine; son says it’s troublesome

Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, both 63, were among the first high-profile individuals to contract the Wuhan coronavirus, while they were in Australia where Hanks was making his new movie, an Elvis Presley biopic.

The couple went into quarantine, then made a full recovery and were allowed to return to their home in Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, msn.com reports that Hanks’ and Wilson’s blood will be used by medical researchers to develope a vaccine for the Wuhan virus.

The couple had enrolled in a medical study to determine if their antibodies would be useful for scientists working on developing a vaccine.

Speaking on NPR podcast ‘Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!’, Hanks revealed that they have been approved to donate blood because they do “carry the antibodies,” and joked that he is responsible for the creation of a “Hank-ccine”:

“We have not only been approached; we have said, do you want our blood? Can we give plasma? And, in fact, we will be giving it now to the places that hope to work on what I would like to call the Hank-ccine.”

Tom Hanks’ son, Chet, however, finds this “troublesome”.

In a video tweeted by Jimmy Brangus, Chet Hanks says that “it is true” what alternative media websites like 4chan and 8chan say — that Tom Hanks is a willing tool of those advancing a “new world order” agenda. Chet says:

“Ever since The Simpsons predicted my dad being the spokesperson for the coronavirus…it’s been troublesome, to say the least.”

Was Chet being sarcastic?

Chet Hanks, 29, is a rapper and a self-confessed “black sheep” of the family, having battled cocaine and crack addiction, dealt drugs and had several stints in rehab. (The Sun)

He also has a huge Illuminati one-eye tattoo on his chest.

The mystery of Soleimani’s red ring: a Masonic ring also worn by other elites

On January 3, at the direction of President Trump, missiles shot from American drones killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, Iraq.

Soleimani was a major general in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps  and commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for military and clandestine operations outside of Iran. He was described by an ex-CIA operative as “the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today” and the principal military strategist and tactician in Iran’s effort to combat Western influence and promote the expansion of Shiite and Iranian influence throughout the Middle East.

Trump justified the assassination on the grounds that Soleimani was a terrorist who posed an “imminent threat” to American lives. The U.S. Defense Department said Soleimani had approved the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on December 31, 2019, and was planning further attacks on American diplomats and military personnel.

The January 3 drone attacks incinerated the two vehicles carrying Soleimani and his companions. We are told that what remained of Soleimani was his hand wearing a ring with a large, oval, red stone like the one seen in countless photos of Soleimani.

But, as Deplorable Patriot shows in his post, “Could  Iranian general Qassem Soleimani fake his death if someone gave him a hand?,” the red ring on the severed hand is not the same ring seen in photos of Soleimani when he was alive. The silver metal setting that holds the red stone is different: the setting in the severed-hand ring is grooved, but the setting is smooth in photos of Soleimani.

Add to the intrigue and mystery is the discovery by eagle-eyed netizens like Mimi B that American celebrities (Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks) and political elites (Hillary Clinton, Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, John Podesta), as well as the current president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, have also been seen wearing rings with a large oval red stone similar to Soleimani’s. (Note: Arnold Schwarzenegger should not be included in the composite pic below — the ring he was wearing has a blue stone.)

Go here for close-ups of the red rings on Oprah, et al.

What does the red ring signify? Membership in some secret organization?

More intrigue still.

According to the jewelry website La Blingz, Soleimani’s ring is a Free Masons ring — the Sterling Silver Masonic Masonic Red Onyx Statement Ring, now marked down from $150 to $69.99.

Tweeter Mike Bravo points out Soleimani’s associates also sport the red Masonic ring.

Notice how in the picture above, Soleimani was wearing THREE similar-looking rings with red oval stones? Below is a close-up of his two hands:

Since he owned and sometimes wore several big red-stone rings at the same time, the ring on the severed hand said to be Soleimani’s may be one of them. Does this mean the hand did belong to Soleimani and he is dead after all?

Peak Irony: Hollywood Reporter headline featuring TDS-infected actors says, “Anger is very easy – the other stuff feels difficult”

A lot of TDS in one photo…

You’ve got to give credit to the progressive Hollyweird actors: They have NO SENSE of self-awareness. Guess that’s because they aren’t paid for that specific skill.

Case in Point: A recent “Actor Rountable” from the Hollywood Reporter wherein progressive male actors (Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Shia LeBouef and Adam Driver) share “emotional and funny conversations.”

Keep in mind the following posts/headlines about Hanks, LaBeouf and De Niro when you read their (scripted?) statements:

Tom Hanks in 2004: ‘Blackface,’ race jokes at fundraising auction
Tom Hanks’ disturbing Toddlers & Tiaras skit with 6-year-old ‘sexy baby
Shia LaBeouf Arrested at His Anti-Trump Protest
TDS-infected Robert De Niro screams at his driver because he went to the wrong spot
TDS: Robert De Niro and his foul mouth bash President Trump during award ceremony for high school students

Excerpts from the interview (videos below NSFW):

How did you switch from being a Marine to being an actor?

SHIA LABEOUF Never been in the military, but [acting] feels life-and-death to me. Every time, it feels like your neck is on the chopping block, every time. Just like boxing. Guys train really hard to go put their neck on the line.

Shia, what made you want to make Honey Boy?

LABEOUF My back was against the wall. I was nuclear at this point. It felt like survival, like there was no other way to go. I didn’t have a lot of people talking to me. I was in a mental institution. And I also had a doctor who was pushing me to explore these dirty parts and write them down.

Did you discover anything in that institution that helped your acting?

LABEOUF Yeah, empathy for my father, who was always the biggest villain in my life. And if you can empathize with the biggest villain in your life and scrape some of these shadows, it makes you lighter and freer. I don’t think I was leading with love, and my life has changed. And when you lead with lightness and love, you can get to the heavy easier, you know? It’s much easier, much more accessible. Anger and the rough shit is very easy — it’s the other stuff that feels quite difficult. Getting an honest laugh is very hard, very hard. I think some of the hardest stuff is the lightness.

Who’s most intimidated you?

DE NIRO As you get older, you don’t want to be intimidated by anybody who shouldn’t intimidate you. We’re in a political situation now where I feel that you must stand up to this. Because people are nonplussed. It’s like they say, “Did this guy just do that?” I don’t even know how to react to that because that’s not within my world of common sense or right and wrong. You’ve got to push him back, you’ve got to snuff him out. You’ve got to get rid of him. He has said, “I want to be president for life.” He’ll pardon himself. He’ll do anything. He’s just gotten worse and worse and worse and worse and we’ve got to get rid of him.

When Ellen DeGeneres went to the football game with President Bush, was that OK with you?

HANKS Not everybody should be political, but everybody must be principled. And we carry our principles with us 24 hours a day. And one of the things I learned from the get-go as an actor in a repertory company is, you didn’t have to like those people and you did not have to agree with those people, but you had to respect those people. And the default setting, I think, for so much of everything is conflict and cynicism.’

What Hollyweird Hypocrites.

Tom Hanks' disturbing Toddlers & Tiaras skit with 6-year-old 'sexy baby'

I don’t watch late-night TV talk shows. In fact, I hardly watch network TV, period.
So I wasn’t aware of this so-called “skit” by Tom Hanks that was broadcast on Jimmy Kimmel Live 4 years ago.
Tom Hanks and fake daughter SophieIt’s a 6½-minute skit called “Toddlers and Tiaras,” in which a child actress pretends to be Hanks’ 6-year-old daughter Sophie, whom Hanks has groomed to be “sexy” since she was 3 months old to compete in the “Sexy Baby – Nevada” beauty pageant.

Note: Hanks has 4 children — 2 sons with his second and current wife Rita Wilson, and a son and a daughter with his first wife whom he divorced in 1987. Tom’s real-life daughter, Elizabeth Hanks, was born in 1982 and will be 32 years old this May.

Hanks looks downright creepy, his eyes pulled tight by plastic surgery.
Tom HanksThe skit is presented as a satire of girl beauty pageants — but is it?
A 3-month-old baby is “sexy”? A 6-year-old girl is “sexy”? Only to pedophiles!
Ask yourself: Why would a mega-star like Tom Hanks devote his time and effort to make this long, supposedly-funny (which it isn’t) skit for a late-night talk show?
Or is it an effort to normalize pedophilia?
Watch it, then let’s hear from you!

Update (May 26, 2016):

In the last week, this post was discovered and passed around on Facebook, evidently by fans of Hanks, many of whom insist that his skit was well-meaning, intended to satirize child beauty pageants and to draw attention to the scourge of pedophilia.
Really?
If that was Hanks’ purpose, he really should have looked closer to home — to Hollywood, where child actors/actresses routinely are prey for pedophiles. See the new documentary about Hollywood pedophiles, An Open Secret.

Time to end the Hollywood tax cut and subsidies

On the last night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, if you had tuned in to one of the major TV network stations, you might have thought you’d stumbled across a Hollywood awards ceremony. There on the stage were Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington dressed up and giving speeches during prime time; Tom Hanks narrating a tribute to veterans; Mary J. Blige and the Foo Fighters performing; and James Taylor making folksy jokes against a backdrop of wilderness pictures.

Obama girls (l to r): Washington, Johansson, Longoria

Excepting the Foo Fighters, altogether, the net worths of these celebrities total more than half a billion dollars ($528 million). Eva Longoria’s is estimated to be $35 million; Scarlett Johansson’s is $35 million; Kerry Washington’s is $3 million; Tom Hanks’ is a whopping $350 million; Mary J. Blige’s is $45 million; James Taylor’s is $60 million.

But every one of their speeches emphasized their working-class roots and their solidarity with the poor and downtrodden. As an example, Johansson plaintively declared, “I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.”

Since most of the denizens of Hollywood, like the celebrities who pimped for Obama at the DNC, are Democrats and favor the party’s policy of wealth redistribution (listen to Obama declaring he favors redistribution in 1998), it is only fair that Hollywood actually participate in redistributive social justice by paying its “fair share.” I’m sure Hollywood liberals are just sick and tired of being called “limousine liberals” (just another expression for “hypocrites”)!

As a matter of fact, Eva Longoria said at the DNC that she should be paying higher taxes: “The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy’s flipping burgers — she needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not.”

Glenn Reynolds writes for The Examiner, Sept. 15, 2012, calling for an end to the 20% tax cut enjoyed by Hollywood since the 1950s:

It’s not just Eva Longoria who doesn’t need a tax break — it’s her entire industry, which has enjoyed favorable tax treatment in all sorts of ways, at both the federal and state levels, for years. And now, with the federal government and the states in parlous financial condition, it’s time for those fat cats to shoulder more of the burden. Why should burger flippers at Wendy’s have to cover the national debt while Hollywood moguls enjoy yachts, swimming pools and private jets?

The last time America was this deep in debt was the end of World War II. One of the ways we paid the debt down was through a 20 percent tax on the gross receipts of movie theaters. (That’s right — gross, not net.) That tax was repealed in the 1950s — I guess we could call that the “Hollywood tax cut,” since we’re still talking about the “Bush tax cut” in 2012. To secure that repeal, Hollywood launched a major PR campaign about how taxes kill jobs and hurt prosperity. We haven’t heard that kind of talk from them since.

[…] Now, we’re facing debt levels similar to those we faced after World War II, and it seems entirely appropriate to respond with similar measures. Of course, technological change means we’d need to update the 20 percent tax to apply not only to movie theaters, but to DVD sales, movie downloads, pay-per-view and the like. That just means more revenue, which should please Eva Longoria.

And that’s just the beginning. To be sure that fat cats are paying their fair share and not getting away with things that Wendy’s workers can’t, it’s time for the Internal Revenue Service to crack down on Hollywood’s shady accounting practices, which let studios make even highly successful films look like money losers. (Just look up “Hollywood accounting” on Wikipedia.) I feel sure that if the IRS took a hard look at studios’ and producers’ books, they could squeeze out a good deal of additional revenue. Wendy’s workers don’t get to engage in that kind of fancy accounting. Why should Hollywood?

Meanwhile, cash-strapped states need to take a second look at their extensive film subsidies. A recent study by the Louisiana Budget Project found that despite costing a billion dollars or so over the last decade, Louisiana’s film subsidy project hadn’t accomplished much for the state. “Unfortunately, the returns to the state on this investment, like many of the movies made here, have been a flop. While the subsidies have helped create film industry jobs that weren’t here before, many of these positions are temporary and have come at a steep cost to taxpayers.”

I suspect the same is true in the many other states that have subsidy programs to encourage Hollywood to film there. The main payoff for these programs — and “payoff” is, I think the right word — is that they let state politicians hobnob with the occasional Hollywood star. Why should they do that with taxpayer money? Wendy’s burger flippers can’t.

The more I think about it, the more I think Eva Longoria is right. She should be paying more in taxes, and so should her entire industry. Perhaps under the next administration, they will.
