CIA Posts Series of Bizarre, Oscar-Related Tweets

This is the sort of pandering that you’d never expect from the CIA.

For many, pondering on the subject of the Central Intelligence Agency usually conjures up images of stealthy spooks and James Bond-esque, behind-the-scene heroics.

Like their brethren at the FBI, the CIA is one of the few agencies in the nation that We The People have unofficially chosen to be hands-off about.  We understand perfectly well that the CIA isn’t always playing by the rules, (or even playing fair at all), but we mostly understand why they do what they do.

What happened during The Oscars, however, has many people second guessing their nonchalance about the intelligence agency.

Some Twitter users were a bit confused during the Oscars on Sunday as the Central Intelligence Agency tweeted about the fictional technology behind the Marvel superhero film “Black Panther.”

The agency sent out a dozen or so tweets about the science featured in the Oscar-winning film and even asked for advice on which “Black Panther” technology its 2.5 million followers would like to see used in “the real world.” It also tweeted a series of photos and poll questions “to get your views on the feasibility of Wakandan technology today,” referring to the fictional African nation where much of the film takes place.

The agency, which has received backlash for meddling in African affairs in past, also linked to press release from a CIA scientist named Rebecca, who it said had researched “Black Panther” communication technology.

There is little doubt that the actions were meant to reach a younger crowd, possibly for the sake of the agency’s public relations team.

Unfortunately, due to that reality, the tweets were seen as little more than youth-pandering.

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
