Better Call Saul because actor Shia LaBeouf is probably going to need a lawyer to bail him out of jail again or, more likely, a mental health facility in the Duke City. As proof, take a look at LaBeouf's total mental meltdown in the video below at the site of his new 24/7 "He Will Not Divide Us" livestream camera which relocated on February 18 from Astoria, NY where it was removed by the hosting museum to the new location in Albuquerque, NM.
I am probably the only writer on NewsBusters to have received an award from the Soviet Union. It was for my work as an American correspondent for Krokodil Magazine which you can see chronicled in I Was A Commie Writer.
I live in South Florida which is full of eccentrics which is why I feel right at home here. My main accomplishments in life were winning a bottle of aftershave when I was eight and having the biggest PING List (over 1000 Pingees) on the Free Republic forum for my DUmmie FUnnies blog. This is fortunate since I suffer severely from Ping List Envy.
Prior to the advent of the Web, I wrote a syndicated humor column that appeared in dozens of newspapers throughout North America. Only complete humility forbids me from telling you that my columns appeared in the Houston Chronicle, St. Petersburg Times, L.A Herald-Examiner, Winnipeg Free Press, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Vancouver Sun, and lots of other periodicals that I am much to humble to list.
Oh, I also produced an award-winning satirical comix website called PJ's Comix. This sort of balances out the fact that I am the WORST basketball player in the world.
When I lived in Los Angeles, I wrote comedy material for comedians. Sorry, due to business ethics I can't reveal any of their names (Argus Hamilton).
Talk about a stretch! Or, better, make that a streeeeeeetch. Vox has started a new type of movie review in which they take a film and try to correrelate it to current events. Since Vox, like the rest of the MSM, is absolutely obessed by President Trump, it is no big surprise that they will apply their TDS to the reviews starting with the current movie: "Dr. Strangelove." To read the review by Alissa Wilkinson you would think Stanley Kubrick's classic dark comedy should have been named "Dr. StrangeTrump or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Donald."
The New York Times and the Washington Post are chock full of "conservative" columnists who reflect the lack of political diversity in their newsrooms by being united in their opposition to Donald Trump. However, of all these "conservatives," there is one with the saving grace of at least being comically entertaining in that he consistently provides hilariously wrong predictions about Trump. He is Ross Douthat who is sort of a monastic mini-me version of his Times colleague David Brooks.
So just how wrong are Douthat's predictions? Let's just say they are in the category of Bob Shrum Curse wrong. And the funniest thing about Douthat is that no matter how many times he seems to swear off making predictions that make him look foolish...he always returns to make yet more foolish predictions. He just can't help himself.
Excuse me, Newsweek, but who was ultimately responsible for establishing the Manzanar internment camp along with the other such camps which interned Japanese residents in the USA along with Japanese-American citizens during World War II? If you read this February 15 article by Newsweek senior writer Alexander Nazaryan you would think President Donald Trump who was born a year after that war ended was somehow responsible rather than the real culprit, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In fact Nazaryan mentions Trump 26 times in the story while FDR appears only 3 times.
Few things better illustrate the cultural isolation of the New York Times in their liberal bubble than the fact that they actually consider it an insult to President Donald Trump to compare him to the popular character of Al Czervik in the comedy movie "Caddyshack." That was the bizarre assumption made in their February 13 Editorial Notebook opinion piece, The 'Caddyshack' President, written by Elizabeth Williamson. Had she or anybody at the Times' editorial staff done just a bit of research, they would have discovered that many Trump supporters have been making the same comparison because the way Al Czervik shook things up at the stodgy golf club was looked upon favorably.
Imagine New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks decked out in a Maquis beret as part of the Ivory Tower resistance movement against the evil TrumpenReich. He runs out into the street to stop traffic, including emergency vehicles, while screaming vehement rhetoric to mobilize mass opposition to the fascistic dictatorship of President Donald Trump.
Yes, you read this story's title correctly. In what can best be described as a Flying PIgs moment for Newsweek, writer Josh Samuel reported on a Trump immigration policy in a generally positive manner even though he used the liberal-approved term, "undocumented immigrants." His February 12 article, DOUBLING AS IMMIGRATION OFFICERS, SHERIFFS APPLAUD TRUMP ORDER, describes a Trump policy to aid in the enforcement of immigration law via local law enforcement.
So before Newsweek is forced to disavow its own article, here are some of the highlights:
It appears that "conservative" Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post has joined with "conservative" David Brooks of the New York Times in fully embracing the loony political fantasies of the unhinged left. Both are now predicting the imminent removal of President Trump from office. Brooks predicted Trump would resign from office or be impeached within a year. Parker is very slightly more reasonable by extending that time frame to two years when a new Congress chock full of Democrats elected in 2018 would immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.
Exactly three weeks after its kickoff on Inauguration Day, Shia Labeouf's anti-Trump livestream camera project has been shut down today by the Museum of the Moving Image in the Astoria section of Queens, NY. Yes, you will no longer be able to see leftists robotically chanting "He will not divide us" over and over again. Even more importantly, you will also no longer be able to laugh as Trump supporters often hilariously mocked those same leftists.
Sometimes your best friends can inadvertently become your worst enemies. Such was the case of Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media according to Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight. Most observant people knew that the MSM was all in for Hillary this past election to the extent of acting like cheerleaders for her. So instead of cautioning Hillary when Donald Trump made exactly the right moves to win the necessary electoral votes for victory, they instead mocked him for his ignorance of political campaigning. As a result this gave the Hillary campaign a false sense of security when they should have campaigned in the previous "blue wall" states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Remember Margaret Sullivan? She is The Washington Post media columnist who wanted to retire the term "fake news" when it boomeranged on liberals after it had been embraced by the mainstream media. Now Sullivan has another crusade in which she wants to cancel something. The White House Correspondents' Association dinner. Although Sullivan supported The New York Times withdrawing from the dinner several years ago when she was the Public Editor there she did not call for its outright cancellation.
The Economist magazine, based in the United Kingdom, must have been jealous of the deranged cover of Der Spiegel featuring Donald Trump holding a machete in one hand and the head of the Statue of Liberty in the other hand. In order to attempt to surpass them in the field of Trump derangement they have featured Trump throwing a Molotov cocktail on their cover. In fact The Economist editors are so proud of their TDS artwork that they have even featured it at the top of their twitter feed.
Please, Jeff Bezos! Please don't let me be exposed to ideas contrary to SJW dogma. If you don't create a safe space for me on the Internet Movie Database, IMDb, this precious snowflake will melt away.
Well, apparently that type of person will no longer have to worry. Amazon has announced today, February 3, that the IMDb message boards, as close to a web tradition and institution as you can get, will be shut down. Apparently people are unable to simply ignore trolling or posts which with they disagree according to the shutdown rationale. Here is the announcement that Mr. Bezos has folded to a small percentage of whiners by shutting down what many consider to be the most interesting message board on the Web.
Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Newsweek writer! Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald admits that President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, is "eminently qualified." However, he angrily proclaims that this nomination must be stopped because of a need for vengeance. Eichenwald doesn't try to hide that as an ulterior motive. In fact, he absolutely obsesses over it.
"HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US! HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US! HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US! HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US!"
Try to imagine Voltaire or Thomas Paine robotically chanting an inane mantra and you get an idea of how silly it is. However, that is what Shia LaBeouf's livestream camera cult is doing outside the Museum of Moving of the Image in the Astoria section of Queens, New York. When the livestream camera cultists are not mindlessly reciting that chant they are either loafing around doing basically nothing or getting arrested as happened to LaBeouf on January 26.
The mainstream media is treating President Trump's claims of vote fraud with extreme indignation. Now one can argue the extent of it but the MSM is acting as if vote fraud is almost unheard is. An extreme rarity. However, allegations of vote fraud have long existed yet until recently the MSM did not really challenge those assertions. Last summer AMC's docudrama Making of the Mob: Chicago showed the scene below of Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. asking notorious Chicago mobsters Tony Accardo and Sam Giancana to use their muscle to provide union votes for his son, John F. Kennedy, who was running for president in the 1960 election. How much MSM outrage did that scene inspire? Absolutely none.
HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US! HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US! HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US! HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US!
Mostly former actor and now mostly performance artist Shia LaBeouf seems to be under the illusion that if the above monotonous chant is repeated on livestream video 24/7 for the next four years, it will somehow have some sort of political impact. Well, maybe not so much political as a comedy impact as we shall see although that definitely is not LaBeouf's intention. Entertainment provides us with a quick review of LaBeouf's latest performance art obsession that has inadvertently turned into comic art for others.
Remember Mike Elk, the former lethargic Politico labor reporter? The word "lethargic" will forever be attached to his name because despite writing a grand total of five stories in fourteen weeks followed by several months of doing absolutely nothing, while being paid, he compained about the heavy work load at Politico. Nowadays Elk is writing about labor unions at his own Payday website funded by his Politico settlement. Unfortunately for Elk, money management doesn't seem to be his strong point since he now has his hand out for money to pay for ObamaCare which he claims he can't afford.
It seems that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Marketplace show was unable to find a racist Trump supporter. Instead they hired an actor named Mike to portray one as you shall see. Mike's job as a racist Trump supporter was to sell a couple of White Power T-shirts along with a "Make Canada Great Again" T-shirt. It was their laughably unsubtle attempt to link Donald Trump to racism.
Your humble correspondent featured some really hilarious viral liberal meltdown videos in the wake of President Trump's election victory in November. Of course, one also expected great things of the same group following Donald Trump's inauguration yesterday and they did not disappoint. However, mixed with the hilarious comes also the pathetically sad in the form of anarchists smashing windows and destroying property as a form of violent protest.
