Leno Knows…

I don’t watch the late night TV offerings, so, I’m not that into the whole NBC vs. Leno vs. Fallon thing going on. But the word is NBC has a problem (now) with Jay Leno being too conservative. Yeah, right, given the Obama’s have pretty much had the late Ed McMahon’s seat over the last five years. Anyhow, I think I’m liking the pissed-off Jay Leno better than the fat and happy NBC camper Leno. He has been taking jabs at NBC more of late, and now he states the obvious (via Newsbusters)…

“And in a groundbreaking move, the Associated Press, the largest news gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term ‘illegal immigrant.’ That is out. No longer ‘illegal immigrant.’ They will now use the phrase ‘undocumented Democrat.’ That is the newest – ‘undocumented Democrat.’”

Guess old Jay’s got nothing to lose telling the truth now.

The 85th Academy Awards: The Walking Dread

mooch2

I stopped tuning-in for the Academy Awards back during Pres. George W. Bush’s first term when antiwar/anti-reality-about-the-2000-election Florida recount Hollywood crowd just could not control themselves and be civil. During the two Bush terms Hollywood cranked out some of the worst antiwar and anti-U.S. troops movies that failed miserably at the box office, adding to an already struggling industry with poor box office receipts. For the bulk of those eight years Hollywood watched their adult cerebral productions dragging their industry down, while the more successful family/children’s movies struggled to keep the industry’s head above water. At some point even the animated fare was peppered with political agenda in an attempt to get that indoctrination out to the public in someway or another.

Over the last decades we have watched the annual glitzy night of limo-lib elitist self-gratification fall deeper and deeper into making full-on political posturing, even down to its selection and snubbing of nominees. In this last presidential election cycle we witnessed the unabashed and unapologetic intercourse between Hollywood and their selected political messiah and national baby-daddy Barack Obama. As I stated above, I have not watched the Oscars in years, but in an attempt to seek-out my local TV news after viewing Sunday night’s new episodes of “The Walking Dead” and “The Talking Dead” on AMC I came in just as Jack Nicholson was entering the stage (the Oscars show staying true to form at overreaching its specified time) to bring the evening’s events to a close with the final award for “Best Picture”. I was perplexed by his appearance of unkempt hair-style and dark-rimmed eye glasses, and then his seemingly off-center and perhaps nervous delivery of the few lines of commentary he was allotted. I chuckled a little at the thought of old Jack doing a possible cameo on the zombie series.

Okay, I sighed, I’ll hang on to see who walks off with this gaudy statue (secretly hoping for Katherine Bigalow for all the grief she and her “Zero Dark Thirty” have garnered from her antiwar/anti-USA Hollywood peers over the last couple months, but knowing that was not gonna happen). But then Nicholson kicked it over his shoulder to the huge screen behind him on the stage where feed from our White House beamed Michelle Obama (framed in strands of Hollywood golden glory, and dressed in yet another tin foil frock grinned back from under her new long-bangs wig at the Hollywood zombies showering her with adoring applause. The first thing that popped into my mind was, “WHY is she on here?!?” It was like watching some bizzare Big Brother hook-up where you longed for a hammer throw (nods to Limbaugh)…

The delivery of this most highly coveted “Best Picture” award is usually designated to a top-ranking Hollywood figure. However, this year it was given to the wife of Barack Obama. In addition to all the 2012 Obama and Hollywood love affair I initially figured it was a continuation of the PDA (public display of affection). But then I pondered Michelle Obama, the first black First Lady, was made presenter in hopes of either “Lincoln” or “Django Unchained” would win and it was to be symbolic … or something.

Today Rush Limbaugh (among others) is speculating this is a result of some inter-Hollywood directors’ rivalry and was an in-your-face snark by Harvey Weinstein and at director Steven Spielberg. Whatever. The elitist society that is Hollywood is becoming more and more certifiable as they sink deeper and deeper into their twisted sense of arrogant know-it-all politics. After all, it is said Weinstein campaigned for his own picture using an Obama campaign veteran, and was key in getting Mrs. Obama on the 85th Oscars to present, in hopes the Oscar would be going to his “Silver Linings”. While all of this First Lady stuff was treated as highly top secret, there are those who were not amused at the royal interloping. By the way, never once did Michelle Obama acknowledge the US military (which some, to their credit, do at the Oscars because they know bases are carrying the televised event), but she never explained the apparent uniformed props standing behind her in the picture.

Oh, the double irony of Ben Affleck’s “Argo” (a story of saving the endangered lives of U.S. embassy personnel in Iran, which Iran today is pissed-off about) winning the “Best Picture” Oscar and having the wife of the man who heads the current administration who not only allowed a U.S. embassy ambassador and three other Americans to be killed by terrorists, but continue to cover-up the facts to this day … not to mention having blamed a filmmaker and his video nobody even saw as the catalyst for the Benghazi attack, and who is now sitting in jail (supposedly for a parole violation) under the impression he was/is guilty for the Benghazi attack and the deaths.

One more thing: Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds continues to point out the hypocrisy of Hollywood screaming for ending ‘subsidies’ on oil companies and for mercilessly taxing the rich in this country, all the while their own industry enjoying subsidies and even the lack of taxes.

And here’s a thought: “Best Actor in a Drama: Barack Obama”

The Butcher of Germantown, a Hero of Hollywood and Sundance, Loses Another Patient

carhart

Does the world seem greatly overshadowed by evil … upside down, inside out, and twisted in a painful contortion upon itself?

As soon as the great leap for gun control in this country erupted a couple months ago after the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, there came the outcry to stop the senseless deaths of the nation’s innocent children. While we shared the horror and grief for yet another stark example of how far this nation’s morality and value for life have fallen, we reminded those crowing the loudest for banning of guns that these weapons…

F0AO

… have (and continue to on a daily basis) taken the lives of more innocent children than guns have in this country.

Yet, Hollywood (some of the loudest mouths screaming for gun confiscation and Second Amendment obliteration) has made a highly self-acclaimed documentary honoring, praising, and worshiping those four remaining doctors who still perform “late-term” abortions by wielding those deadly weapons above. So important was this artistic effort of homage to the grand heroics of these four people that the day it premiered at The Sundance Film Festival in Colorado it garnered high security.

Fr. Marcel Guarnizo has made it his mission to defend the innocent children of the womb, and he reveals the truth behind these physicians who took an oath to “First, do no harm…”, but have made harm and death their practice…

Less than two weeks ago, the Sundance Film festival “canonized” the work of late term abortionists in the United States, and gushed unbounded praise and admiration for their heroic “care of women.” The centerpiece of this hagiographic exercise was the documentary film “After Tiller,” by directors Lana Wilson and Martha Shane. The movie uncritically portrays the lethal practice of four late term abortionists: Warren Hern, who performs late-term abortions in Boulder, Colo., Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson who do their killing in Albuquerque, N.M., and the infamous “Butcher of Germantown” (Md.), LeRoy Carhart.

These “heroes” were all taught the deadly art of late term abortion by George Tiller. The partisan media has been heaping praise on the horrid reality of abortion, and now we get this: LeRoy Carhart, one of the four “heroes” depicted in the film, performed a third trimester abortion in Maryland this week, and in a Feb. 8 press conference the Maryland Coalition for Life reported that as a “direct result of complications experienced” from Carhart’s abortion, a 29-year-old woman was pronounced dead in a Germantown hospital.

The press conference in Germantown, Md., reported that the procedure, which commenced Sunday, Feb.3, quickly developed into a medical emergency. The woman had to be revived several times by medical personnel on Thursday but “… due to immense blood loss and hemorrhagic shock…” the medics could not save her life. They reported also, that Carhart was nowhere to be found and could not be contacted by the woman’s family as she lay dying in the hospital.

This is the work of the heroes of Sundance.

“The Americans” Meet Colonel Nathan R. Jessep

theamericanslogo

I haven’t yet decided if I will give FX’s “The Americans” any full attention. I have a hard enough time remembering to watch the one or two shows I do watch, and often times need to either wait for a re-showing on the network schedule, or find them on my cable company’s “On Demand” or on Hulu.com (if carried there). I will look for the pilot first episode of “The Americans” on one of my go-tos this weekend and watch it.

However, apparently the series has already had what I like to call a “Colonel Jessep Moment” (a few of them in the first episode alone), in that the writer and director (with “A Few Good Men” it was Aaron Sorkin and Rob Reiner) craft a scene intended to make someone or something look negative or bad in order to intentionally damage it or damage what it represents, but an opposite viewer reaction and perception negates that intent.

Brent Baker MRC: FX’s new series which debuted Wednesday night, The Americans, is centered around husband and wife KGB sleeper agents who live with their kids as ordinary Americans in suburban Washington, DC when Ronald Reagan becomes President. Joe Weisberg, the creator and executive producer conceded to TV Guide that “this series, to a large extent, is told from the perspective of the KGB and the Soviets. We’re making them the sympathetic characters. I’d go so far as to say they’re the heroes.”

Yet, in the 95-minute pilot aired January 30, there were scenes which should hearten conservatives who believe in Reagan’s righteousness and the superiority of the United States.

(Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell play “Philip and Elizabeth Jennings,” Soviet agents who speak perfect English without hint of an accent.)

[…]

Colonel Nathan R. Jessep’s boisterous “You Can’t Handle The Truth” speech in a murder trial testimony told the cold hard truth and reality of unflinching duty in a dangerous world filled with enemies and critics in the face of the writer/director trying to make him, and by that the whole of the U.S. Marine Corps, look and sound barbaric and insane. Most people I know who have seen the movie feel that Jessep scene was written with that intention, but find it one of the best pro-military scenes ever in a movie. Jessep knew, in the end, he was going to be nailed for his personal involvement and guilt in the murder, but he would not be taking the Corps down with him.

If the series “The Americans” succeeds it will be due to good writing and acting, and not in making us commiserate with and cheer for the anti-American/pro-communist aspects of it … or the attempts to make a strong and resolute anti-communist/pro-American Pres. Ronald Reagan look and sound like a paranoid lunatic that instigated the Soviet’s defensive and offensive actions on our soil. Remember, Progressives/liberals in this country credit Soviet Pres. Gorbachev for ending the Cold War, not Reagan. I imagine that will be an underlying set-up within this series. As a matter of fact, I suspect the series will inadvertently fall into a few more “Colonel Jessep Moments” before all is said and done. Nice try…

Poll Dancing

heston1

With the ‘violence’ industry Hollywood screaming for gun control and castigating the NRA for standing up to the Obama/democrat grab for our Second Amendment rights comes a poll about who the people really, really like better

In the midst of a ferocious battle with the president over gun control in America, the National Rifle Association continues to have more supporters than detractors, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

According to the poll, the NRA enjoys 41% positive approval rating, with a 34% negative rating. That compares with 41% positive and 29% negative in January 2011.

[…]

The powerful lobby for gunmakers and gun owners has seen its popularity climb sharply since 1995. That spring 168 people were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing by a gun enthusiast, and in an unrelated fundraising letter, Mr. La Pierre referred to law-enforcement officers as “jack-booted thugs.” Mr. LaPierre apologized for his words, but as a result the NRA’s positive rating stood at 27% and its negative rating was 47%, according to the WSJ/NBC News poll in July 1995.

In the recent poll, the NRA’s rating is higher than that of Hollywood and the entertainment industry, which the NRA and other critics have said have contributed to a culture of violence. According to the poll, only 23% of Americans have a positive view of Hollywood and the entertainment industry, while 46% have a negative view.

[…]

The poll of 1,000 adults was conducted Jan. 12-15 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1%.

Rasmussen poll:

Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny. Only 17% disagree, while another 18% are not sure.

“Biden to NRA: We ‘don’t have the time’ to prosecute gun buyers who lie on background checks”

Jim Baker, the NRA representative present at the meeting, recalled the vice president’s words during an interview with The Daily Caller: “And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don’t have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately.”

Submitting false information on an ATF Form 4473 — required for the necessary background check to obtain a firearm — is a felony punishable by up to ten years in prison, depending on prior convictions and a judge’s discretion, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“Sneaky executive order bankrolls anti-Second Amendment propaganda”

The directives on gun violence President Obama signed Wednesday were meant to seem harmless. A closer look at the president’s first memorandum reveals it to be a sneaky assault on congressional authority in order to fund gun-control propaganda.

Getting this done has been on the White House “to do” list for some time. In his 2013 budget submission, Mr. Obama deleted the prohibition that has been in effect since 1995 on the use of federal funds to advocate or promote gun control.

Mr. Obama is trying to steamroll the Democratic and Republican majorities that kept the ban intact by labeling the advocacy as research. “While year after year, those who oppose even modest gun-safety measures have threatened to defund scientific or medical research into the causes of gun violence, I will direct the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to go ahead and study the best ways to reduce it,” said Mr. Obama.

Under the terms of the memo, CDC may “sponsor” another entity to conduct the research, which is a handy way of funneling taxpayer cash to sympathetic gun-control groups.

Poli-toon of The Day: Hollywood’s Hypocrisy

hguns (HT: Prof. Jacobson @ Legal Insurrection)

Not only does arrogant Hollywood seriously believe they can preach gun banning/control to us, but they demand we stop pointing out all the violence promoted, glamorized, and widely sold in the entertainment industry’s (their) finished products. But truth be told, it is not so much Hollywood’s use of guns in movies as much as it is their completely blurring of the good/evil, right/wrong lines over the last few decades.

That said, here is the Hollywood Hypocrisy I want to point out…

Have you noticed how hard Hollywood and the liberals are coming down on previous Oscar winner, director Kathryn Bigelow (the first and ONLY female to win a Best Director Oscar) and her “Zero Dark Thirty”? Even a struggling feminist sister hoisted the victorious woman, who defied the Hollywood all boy’s club, to the ranks of Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl for this latest movie. And it is not over ‘gun violence’but waterboarding. (Oh, yeah, and remember, while bashing Bush over the war(s) for eight years Hollywood insisted they supported the troops, but not the mission … and why haven’t we caught and killed Osama Bin Laden, and … and … and … Shut up!)

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Ampas) member David Clennon said last week he would not be voting for Kathryn Bigelow’s film, which has been nominated for five Oscars, and urged others to snub a movie that he said “promotes the acceptance of the crime of torture, as a legitimate weapon in America’s so-called War on Terror”. Writing on the truth-out.org website, he added: “I cannot vote for a film that makes heroes of Americans who commit the crime of torture.”

In response, Sony president Amy Pascal said she was “outraged” that an Academy member would try to influence the voting process. “Zero Dark Thirty does not advocate torture,” she said on Friday. “To not include that part of history would have been irresponsible and inaccurate. We fully support Kathryn Bigelow and [screenwriter] Mark Boal and stand behind this extraordinary movie. We are outraged that any responsible member of the Academy would use their voting status in Ampas as a platform to advance their own political agenda.”

While Zero Dark Thirty remains in the running for five Oscars, it already appears to have slipped behind frontrunners such as Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi owing to the ongoing controversy over whether Bigelow and Boal endorsed torture by their depiction of its use in the film, and whether that depiction was accurate. Bigelow surprisingly failed to receive a nod for best director when the Oscar nominations were announced on Thursday, and Zero Dark Thirty will compete only for best film, best original screenwriting, best actress (Jessica Chastain) and two editing prizes.

The furore over the film, which also stars Jason Clarke and Joel Edgerton, seems to have had a more positive effect on its potential profitability, however. Zero Dark Thirty went to No 1 at the US box office at the weekend with $24m. Bigelow and Boal’s previous film, the multiple Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker, took just $17m throughout its entire US box-office run, despite the Academy’s accolades.

Question for self-righteous David Clennon: In 1995 Mel Gibson won the Best Picture Oscar for “Braveheart”. Did you see the last scene William Wallace (Gibson) was in? It is because Bigelow’s production shows America as the winner, and the Che T-shirt-wearing left cannot have that, ever. Now then, if only Bigelow had portrayed U.S. troops being tortured, or going all “Platoon” on an innocent village…

Anyway, nobody puts Spielberg and the left’s usurping of Abe with their neo-southern reconstructionism in the corner.

I think I’ll see it this weekend … “Zero Dark Thirty”, that is.

One more thing, I am hoping Bigelow is currently working on a script for a “Fast and Furious” movie … and not one involving Vin Diesel and street race cars.

Define Irony: The Plight of Obama-Worshiping Hollywood’s Golden Idol Makers in Chicago

I doubt I need to spell out the elements of this story that make it fit into the ironic category: A Chicago based company. Those unwashed worker bees that manufacture the coveted golden false idols the rich Hollywood elitist limo-libs treasure. Hollywood’s breathless campaigning and selling of the fool’s gold Obama to the weak-minded who hang on their every word as gospel.

While it is not clear if the 95 lay offs are related to the company being sold and union issues, or cutbacks due to the economy and all that comes with the Obama re-election as other companies have and are dealing with, it is still quite ironic

R.S. Owens & Co. Inc., known for manufacturing the Oscar and Emmy awards, plans to lay off 95 employees, according to the most recent report from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The reason for the layoffs was not provided in the report.

Last month, Chicago-based R.S. Owens was acquired by St. Regis Crystal Inc. of Indianapolis. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

According to the state report, the company’s dismissals are effective Dec. 17, the same date St. Regis’ ownership takes effect. It is not clear whether the layoffs are permanent or a transitional procedure leading to the workers’ hiring by St. Regis. Neither company were immediately available for comment.

The 95 layoffs equal more than a third of R.S. Owens’ staff, which numbers 251, according to Bloomberg.

In a statement about last month’s deal, R.S. Owens said it would continue to manufacture its products at its location in Jefferson Park. This includes the Oscar statuettes for the Academy Awards and television’s Emmy awards as well as awards for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nascar Pepsi Max 400, the Cotton Bowl and “American Idol.”

I just wonder if, say, Michael Moore (who feeds on the misfortune and suffering of others), George Clooney and Jamie Foxx (and the rest of those top 1% 2%-ers) are aware and concerned for these 95 people now being laid off during the holiday season. I’m sure they are hard at work right now planning some big fundraiser for those blue-collar workers.

Speaking of lard-ass Moore and the rest of wealth-scolding/wealth-guilt Hollywood, have a look at our tax dollars at work for super-size Mikey and Hollywood in “state subsidies for Hollywood films and studios – a frequent practice that often reaps very little in tax revenue or long-term jobs.” For all Hollywood’s caterwauling demands to tax the rich more in this country, it is time to start with them.

“Going Galt” Part Two

burn-this-city-anthony-citro

On the plan for “Going Galt”

It is time to hit Hollywood and the entire entertainment industry that smeared the prosthetic make-up on this guy and sold him to the gullible celebrity-minded Americans that cannot conceive of how to do a damn thing for themselves.

Buy nothing, no product(s) … movie ticket, concert ticket, iTune download, poster, entertainment magazine, DVD, CD, celebrity clothing line, etc. Buy nothing “Big Bird” or Sesame Street. Now is a great time to initiate this during the holiday shopping season. It is also a big time of the fiscal year for Hollywood movies, now and summer. Not a dime to Hollywood who funded and promoted four more years of misery for us while they sit comfortably in their million(s) dollars homes not worried how much gas is for their fleet of cars/limos or the cost of and shrinking amount of food in their kitchens where somebody else shops and cooks for them. Screw them all the way up to the high-powered producers/directors and studios.

Just a reminder about Hollywood: “Time for Hollywood to pay its fair share”

At the Democratic National Convention, Eva Longoria said that she should be paying higher taxes. I agree.

Actually, what she said was: “The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy’s flipping burgers — she needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not.”

I’d actually go further than that. It’s not just Eva Longoria who doesn’t need a tax break — it’s her entire industry, which has enjoyed favorable tax treatment in all sorts of ways, at both the federal and state levels, for years. And now, with the federal government and the states in parlous financial condition, it’s time for those fat cats to shoulder more of the burden. Why should burger flippers at Wendy’s have to cover the national debt while Hollywood moguls enjoy yachts, swimming pools and private jets?

The last time America was this deep in debt was the end of World War II. One of the ways we paid the debt down was through a 20 percent tax on the gross receipts of movie theaters. (That’s right — gross, not net.) That tax was repealed in the 1950s — I guess we could call that the “Hollywood tax cut,” since we’re still talking about the “Bush tax cut” in 2012. To secure that repeal, Hollywood launched a major PR campaign about how taxes kill jobs and hurt prosperity. We haven’t heard that kind of talk from them since.

But, hey, by that time, we were bringing the debt under control. Now, we’re facing debt levels similar to those we faced after World War II, and it seems entirely appropriate to respond with similar measures. Of course, technological change means we’d need to update the 20 percent tax to apply not only to movie theaters, but to DVD sales, movie downloads, pay-per-view and the like. That just means more revenue, which should please Eva Longoria.

And that’s just the beginning. To be sure that fat cats are paying their fair share and not getting away with things that Wendy’s workers can’t, it’s time for the Internal Revenue Service to crack down on Hollywood’s shady accounting practices, which let studios make even highly successful films look like money losers. (Just look up “Hollywood accounting” on Wikipedia.) I feel sure that if the IRS took a hard look at studios’ and producers’ books, they could squeeze out a good deal of additional revenue. Wendy’s workers don’t get to engage in that kind of fancy accounting. Why should Hollywood?

If Obama’s agenda is to go after small private business then I say we go after Obama’s butt-kissing industry that has NOT been paying its fair share. No, it will not solve the deep money pit this nation is in, but for far too long Hollywood has felt immune to everything they have been demanding for others while expecting those feeling the pain to fork over hard-earned household budget money for their products. As big selfish corporations and corporate sharks go, Hollywood is most definitely one. Don’t feed the shark…

Contact serious republicans in the Congress about ending Hollywood’s tax cuts.

Jesse Ventura Palpably Excited by Castro’s “Cock and Thrust” Handshake … and Communism

jesse-ventura-5

Too many hits to the head…

NEW YORK — “I can only judge Fidel by the hour I spent with him,” former Minnesota governor and renowned conspiracy crockpot Jesse Ventura told The Daily Caller in the empty lobby restaurant of his New York City hotel in mid-September.

“And I will tell you this about Fidel. He had the most unique — I will always remember his handshake. Always. And I’ve shaken how many hands? But I will always remember his.”

“He winds up. When he met me he cocks his hand up and he thrusts it down to you,” Ventura explained with palpable excitement in his voice.

“And I’ll tell you what he first said to me. The first thing out of Fidel Castro’s mouth to me, he looked me right in the eye and said, ‘You’re a man of great courage.’”

TheDC’s interview with Ventura was supposed to be about his new book, “DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government,” but the plurality of the nearly 90 minutes seemed to focus on Cuba. Early in the interview TheDC asked the former Navy SEAL and professional wrestling caricature why he was seemingly more willing to believe Fidel Castro, who was until recently the inhumane dictator of the island nation and who Ventura wrote about meeting in a previous book, than the flawed but open and democratic American government?

“Fidel runs a very inhumane — how do you know that?” he asked incredulously. “They have the highest health care of any Latin American country. … What has he done that’s inhumane?”

Castro ran — and his brother now runs — a freedomless despotism, Jesse! By definition, that’s inhumane, TheDC argued.

“Wait a minute, that’s Communism,” he protested. “It’s a different form a government.”

Does Ventura, who sometimes claims he’s a libertarian, not have a problem with Communism?

“Communism is what it is,” he said. “I don’t support Communism. I don’t like that type of government.”

Contradicting himself, as he did on more than one occasion during the interview, he then claimed that Communism may actually be the best political system.

“The Communism of Karl Marx would probably be actually the best for everybody as a whole,” he explained. “But what he didn’t figure into was human nature and that’s what corrupts it.”

Suffer The Fools

Radio shock jock Howard Stern sent his guys out on the streets of New York’s Harlem to ask Obama supporters why they will again vote for the man. The results, while not surprising, speak for themselves…

Meanwhile, a woman who several years ago decided to pretty much dump the USA for England and a faux British accent seemed to find time to do some endorsing and campaigning for Obama (and out him as a “black Muslim” … or something) during her lame concert tour to promote her floundering latest CD and her very obvious has been career … and the results are predictable (Language Warning)…

By the way, the woman has promised to strip naked on stage should Obama get re-elected. So, just one more reason in the long and growing list of reasons why Barry Obama must lose in November.

You see, all the fame and fortune in the world cannot buy a person’s way out of the catagory of useful idiot.

If “The Innocence of Muslims” Was The Cause for The Violence and Death Across The Muslim World “Zero Dark Thirty” Should Not See The Light of Day

Zero-Dark-Thirty-2012-Movie-Image-2

The administration will not relent on blaming the stupid video, even though they and their water-carrying media are outnumbered by the facts.

John Nolte at Breitbart poses an interesting angle on the controversy of the last few days…

Now that the White House and State Department have made clear that they believe movies compel terrorists to terrorize, it’s time for them to get ahead of this problem. And one thing the White House can do immediately is to pressure Sony to stop the release of director Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty,” which celebrates the killing of Osama bin Laden.

I’m only saying this because, you know, the White House and the media told me movies inflame and cause terrorism.

Think about it: if the poorly produced and laughably bad trailer for “The Innocence of Muslims” results in chaos, murder, and the burning of foreign outposts all throughout the Middle East, how much rioting and mayhem is a big-budgeted, slickly produced, Oscar-bait blockbuster celebrating the death of the leader of al-Qaeda going to cause?

Moreover, an excuse Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be able to use in the case of “Zero Dark Thirty” (as she did with “Innocence of Muslims”) is the cowardly and self-righteous claim that the federal government and the Obama White House had nothing to do with “Zero Dark Thirty.”

Because the federal government and the Obama White House had everything to do with “Zero Dark Thirty.”

As we now know, in an effort to get this glitzy in-kind contribution (tens of millions of dollars) up on the screen in time to affect the election, it was the Obama Administration that gave the filmmakers tons of encouragement and a troubling amount of access to all kinds of classified material.

But this very same Obama Administration has since learned that it wasn’t the Obama Doctrine of disengaging with the Middle East and embracing the Muslim Brotherhood that caused all this mayhem and murder last week. It was a movie.

This means that the only responsible thing for the Obama Administration to do is to get proactive and, in the interest of national security and to help ensure the safety of Americans overseas, put as much pressure as they can on Sony to stop the distribution of “Zero Dark Thirty.”

After all, this is what the Administration did to YouTube to stop the distribution of “The Innocence of Muslims.”

[…]

John Nolte goes on to echo my views on Hollywood’s deafening silence on this whole episode.

On a side note…
