There’s a very good reason 81 percent of Republicans have said they won’t watch Sunday night’s Academy Awards, according to a new poll. Hollywood is the Left Coast base of the anti-Trump resistance and over the years they have made their disdain for conservatives very clear. After all, last year’s Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “We don't make films for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
CNN special correspondent and far-left climate activist Bill “ignorant f***sticks” Weir joined afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin Thursday for a criticism-free lovefest in honor of the Green New Deal. All told, the pair determined it was akin to NASA and a necessary step to save Earth without offering any questions or answers about how this move toward communism would be paid for.
Lady Gaga started off her new Las Vegas residency, dubbed “Enigma,” with a political bang. The famous avant-garde singer, now A-list actress, took time out of her Saturday show to blast Vice President Mike Pence as a “disgrace” to his Christianity, and complained to the crowd about the “fucking president” not getting the government back up and running.
The longer Donald Trump remains the occupant of the White House, the more difficult it becomes for virtually anyone in entertainment to discuss the GOP official without spewing enormous amounts of venom. A recent example of this came on Saturday, when long-time actress Meryl Streep told CBS Late Show host (and frequent Trump basher) Stephen Colbert during a fund-raising event in New Jersey that “I’m scared” of the President.
The media’s inevitable exploitation of the Las Vegas shooting to rip up the Second Amendment was sickeningly swift. Not even 24 hours passed before journalists had began badgering politicians for more gun control and even worse, disgustingly blaming gun owners for the bloody attack. One CBS employee actually said she wasn’t “even sympathetic” because “country music fans often are Republican voters.” On NBC, former Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw used the Today show to energize the anti-gun voters: “I think that we have to step up, all of us, and speak up” against the NRA. The following is just a sample of the most exploitative efforts, so far, by the liberal press and Hollywood to use the Las Vegas tragedy to advance their attack on Second Amendment rights:
WASHINGTON — For me the football season begins in mid-December (when everyone becomes serious) and ends at the Super Bowl (when everyone becomes deathly serious). This year it ended with the longest Super Bowl in history. Though I am the epitome of punctuality, I let the season go into the first overtime in Super Bowl history without turning off the television, so I could see whether President Donald Trump's prediction would be vindicated.
Monday on Good Morning America, ABC entertainment contributor Larry Hackett appeared to give his take on the Super Bowl's halftime show with Lady Gaga. Hackett whined that Gaga’s performance wasn’t political, admitting he was disappointed she didn’t do anything “incredibly provocative” during the show.
On the front page of Wednesday’s New York Times arts section, reporter Amanda Hess noticed how conservative media sites (which include the site you’re currently visiting although she did not mention us) “are perfecting the art of sapping Democratic stars’ name recognition and repurposing their words and actions into pro-Trump material” (or just mockery of rich liberals not getting their way).
Gee, maybe at times entertainers prefer to talk about entertainment rather than politics. It seems that a BBC interviewer could have learned that lesson in a rather embarrassing way when he interviewed Lady Gaga and proceeded to ask her about the U.S. presidential race. As you can see below, Lady Gaga was rather reluctant to provide answers as the interviewer was forced to wait through long painful silences. The UK Daily Mail chronicled the pain endured by the interviewer Charlie Stayt:
Vice President Joe Biden stopped by the 88th Annual Academy Awards and was given a hero's welcome by a room of rich white liberals who no doubt want him to jump into the race for president.
"The nation’s largest veterans group called Monday for the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and two top administrators due over alleged issues with quality of care and cover-ups at some VA medical centers," staff writer Josh Hicks reported in the May 6 edition of the Washington Post. "His patriotism and sacrifice for this nation are above reproach....However, his record as head of the Department of Veterans Affairs tells a different story. It's a story of poor oversight and failed leadership," Hicks quoted the American Legion's National Commander Daniel Dellinger.
But alas, Post editors shoved the story to the very bottom of page A2. By contrast, however, Post editors saw fit to trumpet the outrage of local diehard Lady Gaga fans -- who call themselves Little Monsters -- at the prospect of a concert being canceled so that the Washington Wizards might host a playoff game against the Indiana Pacers (assuming the series gets to a game 6). Here's how Dan Steinberg opened that 19-paragraph page A1 story:
Buyer beware those promising a “Catholic education.”
St. Mary’s Institute (SMI) is the Catholic grade school in my wife’s New York hometown, Amsterdam. It is affiliated with St. Mary’s Catholic Church, whose pastor Father John Medwid pens the opening to the Saint Mary’s Institute annual newsletter.
