  • Dear Hollywood: Please, For The Love Of God, Go On Strike.

    As many people know, the election of Donald Trump has caused Leftists in general, and Hollywood in particular, to become unhinged.

    I’ll begin with Leftists in general. Their latest tantrums concern the inauguration. They have mounted a campaign to shame performers who were asked to perform into dropping out, and are currently twitter and Facebook mobbing any individual or group that chooses to perform on January 20.

    Here’s just one example. Below is a Facebook post by the band Three Doors Down, who will be performing next Friday.

     

     

    Note the vitriol:

     

    Old fans of this band commented with their support, of course, but that doesn’t negate the hate from the Left. What business is it of theirs who performs at the inauguration?

    And if I read that Leftist talking point about Trump “mocking a handicapped person” one more time, I may just scream into a pillow.

    It was debunked. It did not happen. Trump did not mock that reporter’s disability. Trump was acting boorish on the campaign trail, but he did not go after a reporter’s disability. The true story can be found in the article below, by Mollie Hemingway.

    Unlike another president, who really did make fun of mentally handicapped people:

     

    Of course, Leftists reserved comment on the Special Olympics insult, because, Obama.

    Now on to Hollywood Leftists, who have become as crazy as sh*thouse rats.

     

    I’ll start with the big enchilada, Meryl Streep. And,except for some sh*thouse rats on steroids who will appear at the end of this post, I will also finish with Meryl, who believes she is brave.

    15965251_10210745824297757_3735873794930944266_n

    (Leftists in general also believe Streep is brave for standing in front of a large group of people who agree with her every word and making a nasty speech about half of America, but they are also crazy, as shown above, so we can concentrate on Meryl.)

    There is plenty to say about Meryl here in this post by Mollie Hemingway.

    There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.

    Um, okay. Here again we have a Hollyweirdo who thinks people give a damn what she thinks, insinuating that more than half of Americans are now “showing their teeth.” Like we’re dogs, or some other rabid animal.

    Hello? Meryl? Please take your narrative and choke on it. We don’t care what you think. (In fact, we believe you are deranged.)

    For anyone who’s interested, here’s the video:

     

    And here’s the big enchilada speaking of her love for child rapist Roman Polanski and giving him a standing ovation. (Leftists have no comment on this, either.)

    Okay, that’s about it. Except for this:

    The above Hollyweirdos have jumped the shark.

    I’ll be glad when Trump takes office. The derangement of the Left will most likely remain, but once Trump begins to fix the mess Obama made, I’ll be less annoyed by their antics, and more entertained. 🙂

    And now for a bit of shameless self-promotion.

    The new anthology Freedom’s Light: Short Stories goes on sale Monday, January 16. It is now available for preorder.

    My short story, The Birthday Party is included. I am still over the moon with happiness at being chosen.

    And… my new book, Cadáin’s Watch , the final book of the Storms of Transformation Series, is available for preorder on Amazon.

    Please give these books a try.

    I say this not to nag readers, but for an entirely different reason, one that some folks may not have thought about.

    If you are a Conservative or Libertarian, have you ever wondered why all the arts have been taken over by Leftists like the ones above?

    Books, movies, TV, art and music, with few exceptions, are the property of the Left. This was not an accident. It happened gradually, but knowing that politics is downstream from culture, the Left worked behind the scenes for many years.

    They inserted themselves into all the arts, and now we are faced with craziness from all sides. Anyone who does not subscribe to the Left’s worldview is mocked, derided and ridiculed.

    We have a chance to gain back some ground, but we need readers to buy and read books by authors that don’t tow the Liberal line. It’s the same with movies, TV shows, music and games.

    We have a reprieve, now that Hillary will not be troubling us for at least 4 years. To give independent authors or those with your values a chance will help us change the culture, one story at a time. (And please don’t forget to leave a one or two sentence review on Amazon. The more reviews for each book, the better the chances of it being seen by other people who are tired of Leftist ideology being at the top.

  • Cruzing to Schadenfreude

    As I said in an earlier post, I don’t often indulge in schadenfreude, but when I do, I enjoy it. I’m enjoying it right now, as I sit at my keyboard 🙂

    As some people already know, Senator Ted Cruz announced that he’s running for the office of President. Senator Cruz made his announcement via a tweet & a video. (For those of a different political persuasion who might snark and deride the Senator’s use of twitter to make this momentous announcement, please click here. Then: Shut the hell up.

    Disclaimer: Though I am a fan of Senator Cruz, I’m not positive he’s the absolute best candidate for the GOP to run for President, though he is a much better candidate than Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, or other RINOs. Ted Cruz is an actual Conservative. So am I. So, if he does win the nomination after being properly vetted, I will be in his camp. That being said, it’s way too early in the game. Nobody, at this point, knows who will win the nomination. This post is for educational purposes only. And also for laughs at what’s coming around to Liberals and snarky-assed Democrats without number.

    Shadenfreude!

    This post will be something I can look to for ready answers in a variety of situations. Let’s just say that (hypothetically, of course) certain people begin trying to… well… maybe pull the rug out from under Cruz. Perhaps some Liberal Americans will begin parroting a talking point saying “Ted Cruz was born in Canada. Therefore, he is ineligible to run for President.” If such a hypothetical situation occurs, I can tell those poor misguided souls where to go to find out how things actually work. (Click here).

    If that doesn’t convince them, I plan to pull the “birther” card, and redirect to the previous link. If, hypothetically, Liberals begin stating that Ted Cruz actually was born in Canada, I will continue to redirect them to the previous link, unless and until the Supreme Court of the United States takes the matter up.

    There will, of course, be the die hards. They will attack on twitter with vicious fury. They will scream in upper case, name call and tell Conservatives our kids look like idiots. Tough crap. Nothing they can say will stop me (and other Conservatives) from not only pulling the birther card, but also throwing it in their faces.

    Any Liberal who jumps on the “born in Canada” bandwagon is a believer in conspiracy theories. Such people do not live in reality, and no one should pay any attention to them whatsoever.

    Schadenfreude!

    Another talking point that can be easily refuted is the inevitable cry of “SHUTDOWN! Ted Cruz was responsible for the shutdown!” Um… no. That’s not the way it works. I know this, and anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of government knows this. So, in such cases, I will merely direct them here, and tell them to come back after they digest the contents. Since most Conservatives understand exactly what Cruz was doing, (trying to get rid of Obamacare), most consider the shutdown talking point to be laughable.

    However, certain purist die hards will not be swayed. So, if they want to talk about government obstruction, they can always be sent here.

    Shutdown? Hello? The shutdown in question is nothing compared to Harry Reid. What does a blown out of proportion government shutdown, the purpose of which was to get rid of Obamacare- which is the worst policy ever dreamed up, based on lies, lies, lies, and shoved down the throats of Americans before IT was properly vetted- have on Harry Reid? Nothing, that’s what. What’s worse? A shutdown, or the following, taken from the previous link?

    “The president is fond of referring to the House as the ‘do-nothing Congress.’ But we have 352 reasons why it’s a ‘do-Nothing Senate.’

    “352 bills are sitting on Harry Reid’s desk, awaiting action.

    “98 percent of them passed with bipartisan support — Republicans and Democrats working together to pass legislation.

    “50 percent of the bills passed unanimously, with no opposition.

    “70 percent of the bills passed with two-thirds support in the House.

    “And over 55 bills were introduced by Democrats.

    “352 bills. Why won’t Harry Reid act? These are good bills; bills that put the American people back to work, put more money in hardworking Americans pockets, help with education, and skills training. We call upon Harry Reid to get to work before he adjourns in August to pass some of these bills. The American people deserve better.”

    When certain Leftists begin exhibiting Cruz Derangement Syndrome, remind them that Harry Reid refused to allow 352 bills to come to the floor for votes. This is why he got his a$$ kicked to the curb last November. (For cases of extreme Cruz Derangement Syndrome, be prepared to play the birther card.)

    Disclaimer #2: This post, though it does contain facts,  is purely for entertainment purposes and my (and perhaps some others) enjoyment of schadenfreude. While I understand that there is a rule stating: “No one should justify bad behavior by pointing out the other guy “did it, too,” I don’t care about that right now. I am going to do exactly that. I am doing it because NOBODY can EVER top the long and sleazy list of things our current President has done, and will most likely continue to do until he and his administration are swept out with the trash in January of 2017. So please, anyone who is thinking of this “rule,” save it for the next time. I don’t care.

    Shadenfreude!

    While the previous points dealt with ordinary online trolls who might decide to go Alinsky on twitter, the following people can also shut the hell up:

    1) Hillary Clinton. Whatever she says about Cruz should be dismissed with a laugh. If more than a laugh is needed, just remember these 5 little words: “What difference does it make?” Then, pull up the following photo.

    Unknown

    This goes for other Leftists in politics, like Dick Durbin, John Kerry, and too many others to count, whether or not they are running for office. Just remember… they are most likely worse for the country than Cruz ever could be. That goes for their talking head supporters, too. Shut the hell up.

    2) Hollywood Leftists. I will mention two of the most disgusting and, in the case of B, stupid.

        A. Jane Fonda. When Jane (and other far left hollywierdos who suffer under the same delusions she does) makes a statement about Cruz’s supposed ineligibility, just google Jane Fonda, Vietnam. Read about her treasonous behavior. Then look at the following photo, and understand that she most likely caused the death of unknown American GIs during the war. If you see her on your TV screen, don’t throw a brick through it. Just yell, “Shut the Hell up, you commie!”and change the channel.

    0045F12400000258-0-image-a-61_1421675460434

       B) Sean Penn. Sean Penn’s stupidity rivals that of only one other person, Gwyneth Paltrow. However, I choose to place him in this post because I read that he recently blamed Bush and Cheney for the rise of ISIS, a freakishly laughable position. So, when Sean makes his statement about Cruz, just go here. See who Sean admired and wishes America’s leaders would emulate? Hugo Chavez, insane socialist. Look at the following photo. Then change the channel.

    la-fg-wn-sean-penn-venezuela-hugo-chavez-20130-001

    One more thing… As I mentioned in my previously linked post about schadenfreude, at some point during the campaign, some unknown Republican will decide to play a song that was written by a Leftist Rocker, or performed at some point in history by a Leftist Rocker. In turn, the Leftist artist will publicly demand that the Republican stop playing their music. This WILL happen. It always does. Republicans should quit while they’re ahead. They should play the music of what few Rockers there are who believe in real freedom, and leave the others behind. Let Hillary have em.

    The Rock & Roll artists who made the genre what it is today should be writing songs about the Benghazi Four instead of doing everything they can to promote those responsible for what happened in Benghazi, but they won’t. Now they are strict enforcers of Leftist ideology. They have become, in a word, the “man.” They are living in the past. Ok, that’s fine. I will still listen to their music, because I love it. But other than that, I would tell them to also shut the hell up.

    So, while Senator Cruz may not get the nomination, he is still a worthy candidate. We should let things play out, ignore the haters, and enjoy the Schadenfreude.


  • Repackaged, But Still A Hard Sell

    Many people–including at least one writer at the New York Times, agree–CBS’s new drama, Madam Secretary, may be based, at least in part, on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton Awarded The 2013 Lantos Human Rights Prize

    I haven’t tuned in as of this writing, though I probably will, if only to see for myself what this show is all about. I hope it doesn’t turn out to be an attempt to sell Clinton as our next Commander In Chief. The possibility of Mrs. Clinton becoming the next leader of the free world is the mother of all nightmares.

    Fair minded and well informed Americans are well aware of the attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, on September  11, 2012, and the subsequent cover-up. Click here for information on an in depth interview with men on the ground during the attack. The interview was conducted by Bret Baier, chief political anchor at FNC and host of Special Report, the number one news program on cable.

    Unless you’re a twenty-first century equivalent of Rip Van Winkle, you’ve seen Clinton’s now infamous  “What Difference Does It Make?”  statement.

    The facts speak for themselves. If CBS tries to whitewash Hillary Clinton’s record, with the memory of four dead Americans still fresh in the minds of an informed public, they’ll be making a colossal mistake.

  • Hollywood Movie Stars and Fox News (Or Why Some People Insist on Alienating Half Of Their Audience)

    Mortendummy

    It’s a conundrum. It’s a round robin. It’s a huge, bling-covered snowball, rolling down a glitzy mountain, heading toward a mud-hole. To those of us with eyes to see, it exposes a shallow world view, self-importance, bias, ugliness, and most of all, stupidity, but the people who do it seem to think it makes them look good. They don’t understand that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder; they haven’t learned that lesson. They don’t understand that the world has changed, and that ordinary people are sometimes fighting for their lives, due to the fundamental transformation of their country and the world. This transformation was wrought by the very ideology espoused by these bling covered dirt wallowers. They seem completely unaware of what’s happening around them, however, and insist on shouting their foolish opinions to the rooftops. It happens over and over and over again. It results in lost ticket sales, lost fans, and low numbers at the box office, but those who do it cannot seem to stop.

    There seems to be no answer as to why. Maybe, for a short time, they experience a feel good rush–similar to what a crack addict might possibly feel after a fix–as they degrade the folks who support their industry. That may be the answer, since nothing else makes sense. What industry continually mocks and disparages over half of the people upon whom they depend for their success? Hollywood, of course.

    The latest example is Viggo Mortenson, who told the Huffington Post that: “Fox News is appallingly shallow and manipulative.”  He must be watching a different network than the one I depend upon for factual reporting. Here are a few examples of reports on Obamacare from Fox. “California Cancer Patient is Losing Health Insurance” , featured on “The Kelly File” , one of the most informative news shows on the air for folks like me–those who want real news. Obamacare affects ordinary people.

    Fox does in depth reporting on facts, despite the foolish blindness of their detractors. Stories such as the following are important to ordinary Americans:   “Republican lawmakers say the “bombshell” findings by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) show the Obama administration misled the American public when it insisted abortions would not be paid for by federal funds under the health care law.” , and this: Obamacare exchanges limit access to top hospitals, medical centers” .

    The Obamacare debacle is one of the most important stories of Obama’s presidency, yet Fox News seems to be the only major network reporting stories about its affect on ordinary American citizens. It’s hurting many people. In addition to Obamacare, we ordinary taxpayers worry about Obama’s Foreign policy decisions, his use of the IRS to attack groups who don’t fall in line  with his ideology, and the many cover-ups associated with top administration officials.

    These issues are important to us. Americans are being forced to deal with higher prices from everything from healthcare to milk. We may have to choose between a movie ticket and milk. No offense Mr. Mortenson, but…you’re not that good. You’re no Clint Eastwood. You’re no Jon Voight. You’re No Robert DuVall. We don’t need you.

    Imagine Aragorn, (Mortenson’s character in “The Lord Of The Rings), being on the side of the Orcs. That’s what reading such commentary from Mortenson is like for me, personally. It’s getting old. I won’t support his new movie. I won’t support any actor who disparages my family or myself.

    Here’s a scene from Mortenson’s first movie, (Witness, 1985). Witness is a terrific movie, shot in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, an hour away from my home. Mortenson should remember where he got his start. Perhaps he should watch this film. His attitude seems to be similar to that of the Danny Glover character, or even those who attacked the Amish, not understanding, or even caring about their beliefs.

    Mortenson, like so many other celebrities, seems to be blind. If his upcoming film does poorly at the box office, he may or may not figure out why. If he’s smart, he’ll try to get inside the heads of real Americans. Otherwise, this line from The Lord Of The Rings might well become his reality with regard to his stardom, rather than fantasy…  “I can avoid being seen if I wish. But to disappear entirely, that is a rare gift.”

    Hollywood actors and actresses depend on We The People for their success. They’d do better if they remembered that fact.
