Star Trek Beyond & the White House

I was so looking forward to Star Trek: BeyondIf I had any doubts, learning that it is premiering at the White House today, with Michelle Obama as the MC, then those flash backs of her "beaming in" to the Oscars and awarding Ben Affleck the Best Picture award for Argo has only strengthened my despair that, yet another iconic American film (The Lone Ranger, The Legend Of Tarzan, etc.), has been sabotaged by liberals in their attempts to re-write American cultural history to make it appear as if Americans have always been socialist and gay. They are expecting the film to bring in around $60 million this weekend; that's interesting, because when Star Trek Into Darkness came out, they were expecting about $100 million, so when it only brought in $85, that was considered a disappointment; they have lowered their standards, probably in anticipation of knowing people aren't going to see it, and have announced plans for Star Trek 4 all ready,... Even if the film brings in only $60 million, that would still be a disappointment, even if that is what they are expecting: for the budget, the actors, and, above all, the franchise and this being Star Trek's 50th anniversary, (which is even more devastating that it's been sold out to liberalism), they should have their sights on an $80-90 million opening, but they obviously aren't over-achievers; anything then, below $60 million, is going to be a big bust.  Also opening this weekend is Ice Age Collision Course, which is pro-socialist, and Dinesh D'Souza's Hillary's America: The Secret History Of the Democratic Party. It was getting only a limited release, but it has expanded; I would suggest getting your tickets ahead of time for this one.
