Actor James Woods is a shining light of conservatism in an industry that demands lockstep liberal allegiance … or else. Spirited, fearless and brutally honest, Woods refuses to compromise his principles or strap on a Hollyweird muzzle, “consequences” be damned.

When that Twitter follower asked Woods if he worries about losing work due to his out-and-proud conservatism, he explained that he doesn’t expect to work again. But his country comes first and he’s willing to put his career on the line to stay true to his ideals.

Woods has the support of another bold and outspoken Hollywood conservative — actor Adam Baldwin.

Gary Sinise, Patricia HeatonKevin SorboDean Cain, Nick Searcy, Clint Eastwood and Stacey Dash are among the Tinseltown conservatives putting country first. Will others follow?

          • Neil Parker

            Lady God does not allow it We DO!!! God gave us a choice to believe and serve him or to believe and serve ourselves and evil and this nation has chosen the latter. So don’t blame God for this nation and others stupidity and lack of faith!

          • Sheree

            Guess no one ever told you there is a Real live devil – read the Bible you’re spiritual eyes are closed. The world is in a ‘Spiritual Battle’ evil vs good .. one doesn’t even have to be a Christian or know God’s Word to figure that out!

          • msgreat

            Darci, God does not ‘allow’ anything. He only loves….so much that though it must pain him, he gave us free will. Enough of us can accept His love to make a difference….it just takes time. But don’t worry, you are His child, and he loves you too, and has made provision for you in His kingdom.

          • Faye Davis

            God does not cause evil man does. Americans have kicked God out of their lives. There is evil and good if majority of the people prefer to follow the world and not the Bible then we are allowing evil to rein.

          • Jim

            Darci, That is your choice to follow what ever you want. Would you rather have freedom of choice or have God control every aspect of your life? God wants us to choose him instead of God forcing you to love him.

            Man chose evil over a relationship with God in the Garden of Eden. It’s man reaping what he has sown. Man keeps choosing evil over God. Just look at what comes out of Hollywood. Your are even running from God to Evil right now. Yes, there is bad things that happen, that is the condition of a sinful broken world. In the beginning,Before Man choose Evil, God’s plan was for mankind to live for eternity, in peace on earth, with a relationship with God. I hope that sheds light

            How come God is always the reason for the “bad” and never gets any credit for the good? You, my dear, miss the joyful release from judgment we call faith. Or? Government is your god.

          • commcowboy

            God did not bring SIN into the world; Adam did that by disobedience to God’s commandment. Unless you repent you will be held accountable for your SIN. This life is a vapor; HELL is forever….Is your SIN worth eternity in HELL?

          • Kathy-Jean Moore

            God does not cause evil, He does allow evil to be done by creatures who
            possess a free will. He created man in His own image free to choose between
            obedience to his commandments, or disobedience. And since God will not take away
            that freedom, he will not prevent man from sinning, even though sin is the root
            source of the ills of this world. So, it was man who has brought
            upon himself the multitude of evils that abound throughout the world. While God does not will or cause evil in itself, He does allow it, because
            in His infinite wisdom and mercy He can cause a greater good to come from it.
            And for this same reason he does justly inflict punishments. Your statement is an excuse to not believe in God… I will pray for you.

            He gave us free will to chose our path. those who do not believe are the ones that “allow such evil to rein over mankind” He created us not to control us but to love us and hope for our love in return. He could have made us robots to do his will but he didn’t.

          • usaok59

            Mankind chose the evil. God always gives us a choice of doing good or not…too many decided they want what THEY want and to h*ll with everyone else. Greed and power, those are the gods for too many.

          • Lucy Findley West

            So by default you live for the god of destruction? One or the other buddy. No fence straddling. Who do you think is responsible for the destruction you hate? God gave us a choice Life or death. He gave you free will to make a difference in this life. We aren’t puppets, you know. Hell is real. Eternity is forever. It’s not cute to see sleepers pretend there is no God. It’s dangerous.

          • lynprice

            God does not allow evil to reign Men choose evil and good people sit back and complain instead of acting…. It is better to have faith and trust in something good and better in man then true ignorance and lack of faith in anyone. God brings peace to your very soul and hope to your lives. WIthout Him you have neither.

But I do NOT believe Christians should be silenced, I DON’T believe that IN GOD WE TRUST should be removed from our money, being wished Merry Chrismas does NOT cause me to faint, in fact I think Christmas music is beautiful. I firmly believe that people who think differently than me have the right to be heard, not insulted, but I also reserve that same right for myself! So like Bluesman, this conservative, NON Communist applauding, Atheist would like to see the unicorn…and can I bring a camera and my bird watching binoculars? :)

I can’t say I quite understand how one can believe a universe as complex as ours came into being without a designer, but I imagine my belief in my God seems just as strange to you. Thanks for the laugh with the unicorn bit, also, and the same to Bluesman. Reckon we’re gonna need everyone that loves freedom on board with this craziness, never mind religion for now.

          Actually, It is the Muslims that we need to worry about. They are immigrating here in record numbers and having large families. Eventually, they will have a majority and try to install Sharia law. We have a big example of a Muslim, in the White House now. We will not have the chance to learn Arabic because as a Christian the enemy of the Devil/Allah , we will be targeted for death. In fact as Christians we already are targeted for death by Muslims. Here in the states they are more devious, but they are planning for those days.

She knows it, too, as she has recently expunged the mention of abortion from her official biography now.

          • Elizabeth Lipp

            She is an embarrassment to women. I hope she fades away. Quickly. I think the Hispanics will vote for her because of her liberal views on immigration and entitlements. Those two issues trump abortion. It is how Obama won twice.

        • SturJen

          “Julia” was Obama’s ideal woman: A woman who spends her life sucking at the teat of big Government while either keeping another welfare brat, or aborting the next one. She’s the poster child for all that is wrong with this country.

          Julie is the fictitious person created by the White House website to illustrate the greatly improved life of a person be born into a utopia provided by Liberals. It follows “Julia” from birth to grave and the benefits she would receive if only the evil conservatives would let her live her life without interference from the Right.
          Of course, this is utter BULLSH*T! (caplocks got stuck,sorry).
          1st, she has a great chance of being aborted.
          2nd, if she survives 5 parents, gun-free zones, SNAP, drones, obamacare, 30M illegals, and free contraceptives, she probably wont have a brain to think.

          She will be a no-information-voter. Shorter a democrat.

        • lonestarlet

          What you say is so true Fred. Just recently I asked an acquaintance a rather boring political question. Her answer to me was, “I am a highly educated woman and I choose not to engage in conversations about politics. I will say that Obama has been the most pleasing president during my lifetime.” She is 50, so you can figure out who the un satisfactory presidents would have been. I think those in PhD programs have just heard too many times how smart they are. Too bad they never demonstrate that intelligence out in public for others to see.

        • Scarlet LeMay

          They lead sheltered lifestyles, especially the young spoiled white Liberals that had parents that sent them to really good schools etc… Most of them would never walk through Harlem alone at night.They don’t have a clue.

The poor or hard working middle class know the real sting of overtaxation and rascism towards being white via affirmative action etc…I respect all hard working Americans, black, white ,Latin, etc…As long as they don’t buy these Liberal lies than end up hurting everyone in the end.

      Actually he is in the top 10 of smartest people in the world. His IQ is actually over 190. He went to MIT where he caught the acting bug and dropped out. James Woods is a great Patriot and an excellent role model as well as a story of the American Dream.

    Right-wing actors need to band together, pool their money, find outside investors, and start their own production company. As long as they worked to put out good entertainment, instead of political statements disguised as entertainment, like the lefties do, I believe that they would make money and be a success.

    • Richard J Sunkle

      That’s why I suggest Colony Bay productions. Andrew Breitbart had a small cameo role in Courage NH.

    • ked5

      the more success they have – the more the leftists in hollyweird would pressure the theaters to NOT air their movies. that would leave them distributing straight to dvd.

  • michael s

      That’s because before 9/11, James Woods considered himself a liberal. His view changes after riding on a flight one week before 9/11 and saw several suspicious looking Arab on the flight, only to realize later they were the 9/11 terrorists staging a “practice run”.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “I hope he never works again.”

      Yeah, that’ll show him for expressing his opinion! What, does he think America guarantees free speech?

      “Interesting how this conservative was silent on white liberal presidents.”

      Oh right, the “every criticism of Obama must be racist” argument. How typical of Mikey. Can’t actually counter a viewpoint, so call someone a racist. Well, once again, I noticed you were awfully quiet when Obama was banging the war drums against Syria or as Obamacare imploded last week. That’s a rather implicit admission that while you lacked the courage to say it here, you nonetheless disagreed with what Obama was doing. By your own standard, that makes you a racist.

      “Attacks Comcast on “bigot’ Al Sharpton on homophobic,racist remarks,yet has no problem with Comcast for Alec Baldwin’s homophobic,racist remarks.”

      So, you support Sharpton making homophobic, racist remarks? That’s… interesting of you to say so. That goes back to the whole “you being a racist” thing, in case you weren’t clear… which you probably weren’t.

      “Take Searcy with him.”

      Woods and Searcy would be an excellent team.

    • Chevypowered

      Maybe because those “White liberal Presidents” never worked as hard to turn the American people against each other, screw the military, and rip this country to shreds like this half Black president.

      Tell me michael and be honest. Isn’t there anything…anything! That ever troubles you about this president or are you that hard core leftist that it’s all going as planned?

      I support a lot of conservatives, but I never have a blind “love” for them. From Sara Palin, Ted Cruz, Allen West, Mark Levin etc… I respect them and what they do for conservatism, but I don’t “love” them. Even those who I just mentioned have some opinions that differ from mines in some aspect and I, like others publicly voice it.

      As I stated. I don’t “love” them, adore them, turn all “zombie.” When their very name is mentioned, but I respect them because they respect us. Obama supporters on the other hand, is almost possessed. You scream, stomp, foam at the mouth, and yet he does nothing for you. Sure he talks a great game, but when it’s “go” time he provides nothing and blame others for that failure.

      What about ACA if you are working, and your premiums do increase. Will you get rightfully upset or roll with it because you just don’t want to be seen as a boat rocker? See Conservatives would excoriate a GOP president if he pulled this stunt and demand his head on a pike. Obama supporters…well not so much.

      Look if you want to support the pres that’s fine but like BSA, JMG and others. When do you put your foot down? When do you say, “Obama I voted for you and all but, this is wrong?” “I still hate those right wingers, but you dropped the ball on this.” However, it’s always that blind loyalty. That “No matter what you do obama I got your back, because you are absolute goodness incarnate!” attitude.

          I believe it’s the idea that he is really going to help them and cares about them. They honestly believe he is going to provide them with everything. Democrats tend to play on the victim-mentality of “it’s not your fault, it is the fault of that rich, evil person.” “It’s not your fault, you are a victim of circumstances.” And so on. It’s almost like an abusive relationship in some ways.

          So what would, Brandt? He’s risking his livelihood…. and he’s using his status to elevate a point of view that isn’t just unpopular— it risks political persecution by extalegal means through Ogina’s government operatives in the IRS and elsewhere.

          That’s not imaginary risk. What are you risking these days Brandt— besides missing out on donuts in the conference room?

            His biggest earning years are behind him, and I’m pretty sure he’s got little to lose at this point in his career.

            As for what I’m risking, I’ve lost quite a bit of $ in the stock market since the GOP went tilting at windmills on its extreme long-shot “defund” Obamacare mission. Who wants to bet that the government eventually gets reopened without “defunding” the program or delaying the individual mandate?

            As for point two— I feel no sorrow for anybody who “lost quite a bit since the GOP….” Do you really believe what that overpaid broker has told you as to why you are grabbing your ankles?

            Losers lose money in the stock market because they 1) invest money they cannot afford to lose; and, 2) they get more out of their self-pity emotionally by losing money than they do ramming home winning trades and building a fortune whether the market is up or down (u should read my book LOL).

        You miss the point of the individual’s personal choice to take a stand and risk his future employment.

        Wealth is relative to each individual’s station and chosen direction in life. I was an educator. I took a principled stand once and lost everything; was even blacklisted in my profession.

        It cost me a half million in salary and a pension. Wealth? To me it was. Victim? Never— I opened other doors and have done well. But I paid a price.

        Woods is no victim. And his wealth is relative. But, there is no argument from me that he has farther to fall than I did….i lost a half million over 18 years. James will lose that in what, six months?

        Use your head. We’d like to think we can talk to you sensibly and not remedially.

      You wouldn’t know a statement of fact if it smacked you between the eyes. If you want to know the definition of victim, just look in the mirror and at your liberal walk-in-lock-step friends.

            Martin Luther King Jr was a registered Republican. Are you stating that Martin Luther King Jr’s contribution to civil rights was no benefit to the U.S.A.?

          • tifosies

            Actually, King was expressly non-partisan because of his role at SCLC,

            Actually you are a liar. Martin Luther King JR. was expressly a republican he didn’t belong to the party that wrote the Jim Crow laws aka Democrat party. And if you think civil rights and getting rid of the democrat’s jim crow laws wasn’t important – we all know what that makes you.

            “Expressly” meaning that he made statements, inc. “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of
            the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have
            weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party.”

            While he never stumped for a particular candidate, he voted Dem. Source below also includes: “”In the past I always voted the Democratic ticket.”

            Expressly means: He was a registered Republican (documented) otherwise he would have “Expressly” registered as a Democrat.

            Did you read the quotes in his own writing?

            None of those are impacted by the partial government shutdown. My spouse is still getting full benefits, and that was after #Shutnado went into effect.

            Security. You know, to prevent things like the green-paint defacing of the

            any part of the memorial, and restroom employees for sanity reasons.

            You know the “non-essential employees” are furloughed?

          They were in an area closed to WW2 vets but apparently not closed to people illegally here…. double spit. they were in an area closed for SPITE to genuine Americans but NOT to non citizens who came here illegally… I cannot express how angry this makes me. If it had been my father trying to get to the WW2 memorial and been denied I would have burned those damn barrycades. By dad didn’t serve until the mid 50s.

            Believe what you want Pixiedust— entitlements are privileges not rights. They are granted through a political process— and veterans understand quite well that their commander in chief has politicized their well-being. They know that he told our military to stand down in Benghazi— and men paid the ultimate sacrifice. Stop making vets your poodles to score poltical points. Same goes for the poor. My parents grew up poor and never took squat from the feds or the state. They picked on farms in the Sacramento and Central Valley in the 40s and 50s. Stop using the poor as your poodles to score political points. They need you like a boar needs teats.

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Now please post a link to where this democrat administration is denying death benefits to the families of fallen soldiers.

These are a group of people who served and paid for our freedom in many cases with their life, limbs and blood. The ones alive today can all tell some real horror stories, and they did it for us future generations. Now to have their faces spat in, while seeing the red carpet rolled out for these lawbreakers who have the nerve to protest for their ‘rights’ (while waving the Mexican flag) just makes me want to see some political heads roll.

          • The_Livewire

            I wonder if the gadfly is confused. The bills to fund the veterans adminsitration, the NIH, the Parks and countless other things have passed the house (despite democrat opposition) and are currently awaiting the Senate to vote. Clerly he must be mistaken on who is blocking the bills from being passed.
            I figure it has to be lack of education, since he’s unable to post anything but talking points.

    In the celebrity world you are considered “courageous” if you “Come Out”. Of course diversity does not extend to their definition of coming out.

    • Bear1909

      I guess it takes a certain amount of “courage” (or stupidity) to expose one’s genitalia or oral cavity to traces of fecal matter or e. coli. Isn’t that what one is admitting to doing when they admit to engaging in man-on-man sexual penetration during “gay sex'”?

      • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

        A bit TMI on this thread of discussion; the comparison of who the media calls courageous was the concept I was getting at. What Mr. Woods is doing takes loads more courage than someone saying they like homosexual sex out in the filmdom.

    I think Mr. Woods has Charlie Brown syndrome. Actors being kept from work because of their political beliefs went away in the ’70’s. Sinese, Voight and Eastwood are doing just fine. They are also well liked in the Hollywood and philanthropic, raising money for Americans less fortunate than themselves. Didn’t I just see Woods and John Voight on Showtime?

  • BasementWarrior

    For years, since this country turned to social engineering, the true conservative voice has been majorly sidelined if not silenced, and conservatives, particularly women, have felt trepidation about voicing their beliefs. If you were for conservative values, you were either “not understanding” or “radical”, or “stupid” and ostracized or called names. It is true, much of Hollywood has admitted that being conservative leads to belief discrimination and could spell the demise of an actor. But, the time is coming. There is the beginnings of a swell of conservative pride that will endure and eventually overcome the bullying.

    Blaming the King of Fools should not blind anyone to the vast Confederacy of Fools who’ve made him their King — and our President — twice.

    The real long-term danger to America [and the rest of the ‘Free-World’] is not only a nefarious and U.S. Constitution loathing President Barack Hussein Obama and his clown-car cavalcade of sycophants and lickspittles — but even more so a preponderance of the American electorate citizenry that is actually capable of entrusting the type of person(s) such as Barack Hussein Obama and his ilk with the Presidency in the first place. Again — twice.

    It will certainly be far easier to mitigate and undo the follies of this unprecedented perpetual abject failure of a President than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to select and elect such a despicable, Constitution loathing, self-serving incompetent pathological liar for their President — multiple times..

        Wow, if you don’t understand you are truly clueless. The tea party didn’t shut down the government. They are a minority. Only 18% of the government is shut down. Bills by the house have repeatedly been given to the senate which would fully fund the government and were rejected. They then piece by piece passed bills to fund parts of the government and the senate has ignored them. They are not trying to shut down the government. The democrats lead by Obama have chosen to shut the government down. The republicans are asking to delay the penalties to the individuals for not having ObamaCare just as Obama illegally permitted Big Businesses.

    I wish others would step up and speak their minds so we can impeach this guy for all the actual scandals he has been apart of. It’s going to take a larger movement to get the Senate to go along as they are just as guilty of the corruption and lies as the President. Thanks for taking your unselfish stand for what is right. You know your in good company in Hollywood. It might be a small group but some of the best actors have the moral clarity to stand up when needed. Thank you.

  • judy bell

    I agree 100 % – with James Woods – NoBama is only hear for one reason – well two-to get all the vacations for free- and we the people have to pay for them and the other reason is to destroy that United States and we the idiots – put him in – and I stand proud to say I never voted for him one time- must less the second ! We need more men like James Woods ~

    The
    mess at Japan’s Fukashima could take us all out before November. They are going
    to start moving the fuel rods out of the damaged building they are in. Usually
    this is done with computers that know the exact location of each fuel rod so
    they can precisely be removed. But the computers were destroyed by the
    earthquake and typhoon so they just have to use a crane and hope they don’t bump
    one of damage one in some way or else it could explode and release
    plutonium…etc etc..

    This is fantastic…It is SO good, and surprising, to see someone in the Hollywood community who has integrity and intelligence, and who is willing to speak the truth about this president and his administration, and about the damage that they are doing to this country. I hope Mr. Woods knows that he has a lot of support, and that there are many who feel exactly the same way that he does. Woods likely won’t be winning any awards or popularity contests in the entertainment industry anytime soon I’m sure, but he is fighting the good fight….I hope he hangs tough and keeps the faith.

    I have always known James woods is a true patriot and have respected him both as an actor and human being. I wish more of the hollywood set would grow some like he has. James woods has said nothing really surprising. Most intellgent americans I am sure feel the same way. He is a rare commodity. An american with sincere honesty and integrity AND one who is not affraid to show it in the hollywood lime light. Mr. Woods I salute you and thank you for saying what millions of americans feel.

  • Hefailed

    Like Mr. Clooney, Mr. Woods is entitled to his opinion. The difference between the two gentleman is that while Mr. Clooney supports an individual (like much of Hollywood), Mr. Woods supports the concept of a Republic and his country and demonstrates a great deal of courage in doing so. I truly hope he is wrong about never working again, but in any event, I admire and thank him for the tenacity to speak his mind.

    This rally, by the way, is not about real immigration reform – it is about illegal immigration reform. In California, the governor has now made it legal for someone in the country illegally to obtain a driver’s license. The insanity spreads.

    • suqsid4

      Socialism isn’t about the individual. It’s about managing the masses. It’s treachery. I doubt Clooney has the wherewithal to comprehend the importance of the poor man’s sense of liberty.

    JAMES WOODS NEEDN’T WORRY. Commiewood looks at the bottom line and we know well over 1/2 of America, WELL OVER, are grateful to this man for speaking out so eloquently against the regime and would gladly support his films. I would go and I’ve self-banned Hollywood since discover how treacherous these people are and from reading and listening to their ABUSE of fellow American’s. I’d go see a James Woods film out of pure spite! On the other hand, the Boogie Woogie Bugling and Moo’struck Hollywood hags we see most often on Twitchy and Twitter tweeting their spew can go pizz up a rope. I wouldn’t buy a CD, book or watch any film these Brides of Obama are in. Hollywood must be feeling this animosity at the turnstiles by now. God bless James Woods, Ken Wahl, Gary Sinise, Jeanine Turner and others. There are MANY others who have been cowed and bullied into fearing for their livelihood, which is exactly what happens in a dictatorial movement.

    I’ll take James Woods and his patriotism anyday who said above: “My country first..” On the other hand, President Barack Obama, and I quote blogger ‘Wintery Night’ from a 2010 post: “Obama, known for his lectures to others on civility, saw fit to use the obscene and derogatory term “tea-baggers” in a book interview with author Jonathan Alter in 2009.” It is important to note that Barack Obama coined that hateful, divisive epithet which has been since used extensively in the most vile manner by Obamabot’s since then. Furthermore Obama has recently called Americans who disagree with his horrific ineptitude as a President advised his zombie-like base to ‘vote with revenge’ and recently as he was spitting on Veterans, called Americans ‘hostage takers’ an ‘terrorists.’ Why Barack Hussein Obama, a race hustler who obviously is mentally and morally unfit for his high office (he lies with impunity), is allowed to remain in office simply based on his ‘color’ is both astonishing and nauseating. He is a disgrace to that noble color. In short, most of America supports the James Woods and Dr. Ben Carson’s who risk Obama’s ‘punitive’ misuse of power to shut them up, but only a fool would ever believe ‘targeting’ patriots and whistle blowers will shut them up is proof positive they are unfit for office and when did bringing that to the fore ever become forbidden in America? That is precisely what the Constitution Obama so obviously hates INSURES. After all, as stunned Senator Kevin Brady (Texas) said recently in Senate hearings as the scope of the allegations of the IRS Tea Party horror blossomed before us in in what Obama first decried and then in a 90 degree turn called it the ‘phony IRS scandal’, “Is this still America?” I’d say yes, as long as we can count on someone with the powerful position and resolve of a James Woods.

    If the immigrants wanted to really impress the country they should have be there backing the WWII Vets. They should spend more time showing how much the love this country, instead of bitching about not getting enough free shit.

  • Guest

    He’ll work again, he’s too good an actor and his conservatism has been known in Hollywood for years. Recently he was in the remake of COMA acting opposite ultra-liberal Richard Dreyfus so these things are kept somewhat separate. I think he was just being witty. Also, casting agents and producers are not all liberal.

    • suqsid4

      His appreciation for liberty will certainly attract viewers.

    • Basset_Hound

      I’ll give Dreyfus credit for one thing. When Charlton Heston was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Dreyfus wrote a VERY kind, VERY respectful tribute piece instead of launching classless cheap shots like Looney Clooney did.

    If anything, he’ll start getting work up to his eye balls & then some because we all know his popularity is about to skyrocket. The only thing they REALLY care about in hollywood is the bottom line.. the almighty dollar! Everything they say (politically or otherwise) is unadulterated crap and meant to bring controversy since controversy is what sells. Woods is the exception to this rule and God bless him for it!
    With his popularity/earning power, I don’t think he’ll ever have to worry about unemployment as long as hollywood itself remains viable, but that’s a whole other story.

    It’s pathetic that an actor can go to prison for heroin charges and be welcomed back and given the opportunity to be very successful ( Robert Downey Jr. ), or you can, well, pick from the list of incredibly stupid s**t Carlo Estevez ( Charlie Sheen ) or Lindsay Lohan has done, and you can say whatever the hell you want about G W Bush but if you say anything negative about Obama, the Liberals Savior, then you are ostacized from the group for what you have done. I have always liked James Woods work but, for a man to risk his livelyhood for his beliefs, he has gained mt respect now.

    For a guy that has a genius level IQ, he sure is narrow minded.. or severely biased. Obama the one who is a threat to our country? Really? Not the group that wants to hold the country hostage because it’s all their way or no way? Guess IQ doesn’t say much about wisdom.

      So, who’s the one who said “I will not negotiate”? Hint: His current address is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/09/28/1241950/-Obama-sends-clear-message-in-weekly-address-I-will-not-negotiate

        Yes. “he will not negotiate”? He’s not the king. It’s how our gov’t works. I don’t believe Obama is that dumb; but he must think his followers are.

      • The One Who Knocks

        He doesn’t have to, need to, nor should he. the ACA is a law. It’s been judged to be constitutional. That is THE bottom line. It was put in place fair and square. You don’t run a democracy by giving in to political extortionists who want to be whiny little snot nose brats because they didn’t get their way.

        • benched42

          All funding bill start in the House, if you read the Constitution. If the House chooses not to fund something, there’s no way to pay for it. And personally, I’m very happy with the fact that they are NOT funding the ACA.

          Oh, and the last time I looked, we do NOT live in a democracy; we live in a representative republic. And giving in is what the Democrats have done in each of the previous government shutdowns. And for the record, most of those shutdowns were started by Tip O’Neill, Speaker of the House and a Democrat.

          • The One Who Knocks

            >Oh, and the last time I looked, we do NOT live in a democracy; we live in a representative republic

            Oh good lord, loook, by popular usage “democracy” has grown to mean a government that gets its power from the citizens and is accountable to them. When you look at it that way yes, we’re a democracy for all intents and purposes. I understand what you’re trying to say though, but don’t split hairs with nonsense technicalities that do nothing for the argument either way except make you come off like some fat neckbeard in a fedora thinking he’s better than everyone else because he one upped someone on a technicality.

            >And for the record, most of those shutdowns were started by Tip O’Neill, Speaker of the House and a Democrat.

            Strawman, no bearing on the situation at hand, Tip was before my time.

            >All funding bill start in the House, if you read the Constitution. If the House chooses not to fund something, there’s no way to pay for it. And personally, I’m very happy with the fact that they are NOT funding the ACA.

            The house can choose not to, doesn’t mean the Senate will allow it. In case you haven’t noticed, the GOP currently has a 28% Gallup approval rating over this nonsense. What does that tell you? Obviously the poll is rigged though, right? Fact is, the majority of the people in this country right now think they are making the wrong move and need to grow up.

            Congress killed the GOP’s attempts to defund the bill the past 42 times they tried, do you think it’s going to happen now?

          • benched42

            OK. So using your definition of democracy, they should do what we want. And in the latest polls, only about 39% of US citizens are in favor of the ACA. Do what we want?

            Strawman? So history has no bearing in what’s going on now? Why not? I believe it was George Santayana who said “Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.” Well, apparently our President and our Senate have not taken history.

            And your same Gallup poll has the Democrats at 43%. So neither is doing well. And by the ongoing Gallup poll, Obama is at 44% approval. So I guess ALL of DC is down.

            I don’t know if the ACA is going to be defunded now. But I sure hope it is.

        • Jrad

          You’re forgetting that it was Obama that changed the law, the house just wanted the change for ALL, not for only those who obama sees fit to grant a waiver. The constitution provides equal treatment under law, so to exempt one person from the law and not others is not legal, the republicans are simply demanding that this be done properly and legally.

    • AnneCameo

      Get real! Hostage, terrorist, anarchist, forcing shut down, “war on women”, racist, white rich, blah…blah…
      The GOP/House has been negotiating – that is have submitted CR’s, which were not accepted, and changing their demands. The President and Dems in Senate HAVE NOT MOVED, will not agree or negotiate; they will be the ones to chose the shutdown.

      Obama says: let’s handle clean CR and then we’ll negotiate? What leverage would the GOP have? It’s how negotiating works, i.e. give and take. And, if real cuts in spending, or delay, or DC staff should not get “subsidies” they don’t income-wise qualify for… if it CAN’T BE DONE NOW, WHEN? WHY NOT NOW? Are they really too busy to do it now? Does Obama think the Americans are so stupid, as to think they’ll fall for another empty promise? What crap.

    • Jrad

      The ground that is holding the country hostage, changes the ACA without congresional approval but refuses to let the other half of the government have the same concessions. is the president and the democrat controlled senate. All they had to do is make some small concessions to give everyone the same 1year grace period before forced to buy obamacare, and obey the same rules they force on us. All of which is very reasonable, but they would rather shut down the government.

  • Danny Meeker

    I find the hypocrisy of Hollywood stunning, and not just in their far-fetched liberal beliefs. This is the same Hollywood that cried foul over 50 years ago during the Red Scare. The blackballing of several Hollywood elites over suspected Communist ties caused a major uproar, ultimately leading to the dethroning of Joe McCarthy. One would think that Hollywood would’ve learned its lesson and kept DC far away from the entertainment industry, instead of becoming the liberal elite’s mouthpiece.

    James Woods, you are one of the finest actors ever. When I watched “Once Upon a Time in America” I thought you were the greatest! Not many people outshine Robert DeNiro, but in that movie, you were so convincing! Anything you do is professional and outstanding. To mirror the other people…they are fools to blackball you. In the end, they will be the ones screaming for a job while actors and actresses of principle are the majority.

        Thanks to the GOP propelled government shutdown, the vets were kept out. Passed the joint to Donald, hey Jimmy?

        • Jrad

          Are you really stupid enough to believe what you just typed? The obama administration ordered the monuments barricaded and the Republicans joined the crowds and physically removed them. Please stop drinking the kook-aid that the news media is feeding you

          • spookym

            You really are one stupid @#$%. Have you even heard about the government shutdown or are you too busy boinking your sister? WW2 memorials are run by the government, therefore they are affected by the shutdown i.e. the GOP shutdown. Why am I even bothering? It’s obvious your parents were siblings.

  • Clementius

    Don’t be surprised James Woods, jobs will be looking for you! My respects for your patriotism.

  • Who Fatwahed?

    Very admirable, to take such a risk, in order to be honest, in one’s belief. That takes some stones.

  • Don Hilburn

    Mr. Woods; you’re gonna be just fine. Hang in there. I’ve always been a fan like others but now, like others, I respect you and support you.

  • Mick_Pearson

    James Woods is still a working actor?

    I thought he retired so he could twit on the twatter.

    • Jrad

      You, your comment, and obama deserve about as much respect as the object I just said goodby to as I watched it swirl down the drain as I flushed…

      • Mick_Pearson

        You are aDORable!

  • Alfonso Ponce-Enrile

    ….ever wondered about the multitude of people complaining about the sad state of affairs in the country? Guess what, at least 51% of American voters CHOSE Obama in our last 2 Presidential Elections. America got what she wanted that’s very clear. It is also very clear, Americans do not know how to CHOOSE well….have a nice day!

    • Donald Wilson

      Don’t count me as part of the 51% I voted for none of the above. Neither party had an individual worthy of my vote. I voted for someone more worthy. Good day

  • Ed Thornton

    Obama= fraud, Obama has to go he is destroying our country! lets get the party started!

  • Chrissy the Hyphenated

    I will watch anything this brave American appears in. Got that, entertainment bean counters? Anything. The Progressive Left represents less than 1 in 4 Americans. The Conservative Right represents 2 in 4. Do the math.

    I would love to see New York, California and other ultra-liberal states succeed from our nation. Let them harbor all of the illegals coming into our country and let them figure out how to take care of them. The rest of us can work and prosper and help those in need the right way. (Teach them to work and act as members of a community). James Woods is right. Our nation is slipping into a nation without integrity, not following the laws that govern our country. Obama is treating those of us who have worked hard and our families who have been here for generations like the crap of the earth. He is seeking revenge for something that happened a long time ago without my or your assistance.

  • PapuaNewGuinea

    oops succeed is secede. I was typing too fast. Sorry

  • Walter

    James Woods is one of the few courageous, patriotic actors in Hollywood. Let his popularity, and support of viewers, be a lesson to Hollywood producers in the future.

  • Caneman

    The craziest part is that we take it for granted that he will be ostracized and yet we accepted that as OK or expected? It is the very fact that he will be demonized for his “thought crime” that we should be disgusted by. Anyone read 1984 anymore, or is that book now banned to education? The same (general) Hollywood group that blathers out “tolerance speak”… but alas it is only for their beliefs. Not that the rest of our society doesn’t do the exact same thing… No one listens and respects opposing view points any longer (regardless of the degree of disagreement), this in itself is an act of cowardice. Talking over one another has become an art now.
    I applaud your courage of honesty in the face of what will most definitely become adversity. Blessings to you Mr. Woods

  • John Marsh

    God bless you bro… for having the reality in you to be real in public… I think you’ve just gained fans… Christ so richly and abundantly bless you with favor…

    Hollywood exploits women while they’re young then dumps them when they’re old. The movie industry is one of the most cruel, bigoted, obscene, and immoral institutions in American history.

  • Norma T, Brown

    Obama has inspired this nation’s Patriots to stand up and be heard. Our voices will not be silenced !! we are gaining strength and nothing will hold us back! The silent revolution has begun!!

  • Marc

    I have always admired your work. Now I admire you personally. Thanks for standing up for what is right.

  • josh

    We will soon be in the true “Deathlands”.

  • TimboT

    It seems most of the actor/actresses in Hollywood only care about “SELF” which is why when one who has real talent comes out telling it like it is they deserve all our respect.

  • Dan Hudspeth

    You just became my favorite actor James Woods. Thank you for standing up for our vets.

  • Timmmmm

    James Woods was on a flight from Boston to LA when the 9-11 attackers were doing a dry run and noticed the notes they were taking, the things they were looking at, ect… He reported it to the FBI. Ever since then he has been a changed Man. You could say he has seen the light. Long before then I remember him defending Oliver Stone for a movie that took liberties with history, no surprise there like a good liberal. Indeed he is correct. Country first.

  • Dennis Carr

    James Woods “According to rumor, he scored a perfect 800 on the verbal section of the SAT and 779 on the math section of the SAT, yielding a total score of 1579.” I would rather listen to a smart person than to a Mulatto any day..

  • virginia gascon

    Good to see that someone speaks the truth…

  • Catherine McLaughlin

    Can’t agree with you more, keep up the fight we are doing the same in our household!

  • Dan Fitzgerald

    A true Patriot ! A real man! a stand up American! HOLLYWOOD has turned into it’s own little hate group. I like this dude, and more what he is standing for! It takes balls to stand up and tell the truth especially when your among sold, spoiled, self centered ego maniacs……there’s a good reason most have lost all respect for the too kool Hollywood group and alike….THEIR FULL OF HATE!

  • Lucy Findley West

    Impeach the POTUS already! Thank you Mr. Woods for having a backbone.

  • [email protected]

    Thanks man, sure appreciate your support

  • Guest

    It’s funny how James conveniently forgot to mention that the shut down was caused by congress, primarily the republicans for putting a gun to the head to the dems. ( Either they remove funding for the affordable care act, or they will not sign the bill ). The anger should be pointed toward congress.

    • Criticus Rex

      No. Was caused by spending out of control, too much government interference in business and ramming ACA down this country’s throat. ENOUGH ALREADY!

  • Craig M

    Just for giggles, how about trying this. If one individual from each of the 50 states were to file a 1 million dollar lawsuit against Pelosi for failure to comply w/ her fiduciary responsibility, in not properly vetting the Democratic Presidential candidate, possibly there might be at least one State Attorney General whom would seek the release of any sealed information, that might bring to light Obamas once holding duel citizenship, declining US citizenship- for the purpose of foreign student funding, or seeking school funding from a foreign nation (which would bring to question his right to seek the Presidency and Commander in Chief authority without allegiance to any nation other than the US) too justify the basis of the lawsuit (or they themselves be vulnerable to the same type of suit).

  • Barry Fothergill

    Always been a big fan James!!! You also nailed it on our President!!!

  • billmar42

    its good to see some people in hollywood with big testicles

  • metalfinishart

    Obama the first American King!
    Obama the king of the finger pointers. But the buck never stops at his door step. Obama is willing to negotiate with (Syria, Iran, Russia, but not Republicans). So why is that?

  • TXgnnr

    I find it fascinating how comment after comment get posted after one or two individuals post an anti God or anti Christian comment. WHY does ANYONE pay any attention to them. If that is how they fell, let them feel that way. Good honk. None of you will suffer the consequences of their decisions. So, go on with your lives and let them suffer the consequences or reap the benefits of their beliefs/decisions. Another thing….STAY ON TOPIC!

  • Jim45acp

    I wonder how religion effects Mr. Woods. Did he see through the POTUS because of the love of God, or the love of the Constitution? They report, You decide, — the truth.

  • Niles Aronson

    Awesome. He is an awesome actor, a true patriot, and has a higher IQ than Einstein.

  • Don

    James, this old soldier salutes you, Major US Army, always liked you, like you more now

  • Herta M. Bellefleur

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

  • susan hill moore

    I thank God for you and your willingness to speak out!

  • Stonegold

    James Wood is a idiot. This country is not going to fall. For all
    that said Obama is the anti-Christ then you are not very christen
    people. For all those that said that the bible is law then you need
    to read your bible again. There is only one rule in the bible and
    that is do unto others as you would have done to you. So when killers
    kill that is what they want to have done to them. Also answer me why
    god has only communicated with profits in the beginning and then all
    stop on talking to profits. I have been baptized into 14 different
    religions and I think they are all crack pots. Organized religion is
    about getting money to by churches to get more people to get more
    money.

  • michael spurlock

    have faith everyone.

  • Jing Yagunazie

    Would the Secret Service stop obama from committing suicide?

  • lindaspy

Get your facts straight before tweets! Wake up and smell the coffee James, and throw away the tea bags!
