My list of former faves keeps growing
Jewish World Review, by Alicia Colon

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 9/20/2018 7:15:03 AM

I used to be a film junkie and enjoyed many movies with talented stars but now I am so turned off by the antics of these Trump Deranged Syndrome addicted individuals, I´ve sworn off patronizing any of their endeavors. The list of my disenchantment now includes musicians and authors who have chosen to demonstrate the inanity of their political positions based on lies and distortions they have not even bothered to debate thoroughly.

I agree with no longer supporting these jerks with my money. Really wanted to see the new Jack Black movie....not a chance now. I´ll wait for it to show up on late night someday; if then.

For many years I have felt resentment toward Hollyweird leftists and their warped posturing in politics... and refused to fund them by attending movies. I am filled with gratitude to read this from the brilliant Alicia Colon. Thank You... to her and to the Poster!

I have been asking conservatives and especially Christians this question for the last 10 years. Why should we put one penny into the pocket of entertainers who display open hostility toward and work against everything you believe in? The answer has usually been we, I don´t believe in boycotts or it´s just entertainment or some other lame excuse. I am finally seeing and hearing conservatives starting to say that they will no longer watch movies or listen to music produced by these obnoxious Trump hating leftists. Too bad they did not take a stand 10 years ago. We might not have the completely anti-conservative, anti-Christian, and anti-traditional values entertainment industry that we now have.

I so agree. I have cut a LOT of entertainers and musicians out of my loop. I hope the drop in revenues is so steep and obvious that they will finally get a clue. You don´t make money by insulting your audience.

My list of former faves includes the FBI who is refusing to release the unredacted documents Trump ordered them to release. The morons in Hollywood can say whatever they want and do whatever they want that merely proves that they are in fact, morons. However, the FBI, CIA, NSA, and DOJ along with the Senate committees can and do utterly destroy innocent people´s lives with absolutely no accountability.

You see, I can choose not to see or hear an entertainer. I cannot get away from the abject corruption and evil inside a government with absolutely NO integrity whatsoever.

If Trump does not immediately fire for cause all the FBI employees who refuse to follow his orders per the Constitution, he´ll be responsible for their corruption as well.

Former faves indeed.

Everyone she mentions and then some. Even the hosts of Grand Tour on Amazon Prime lost me with their swipes at Donald Trump (on and off air) and a particularly unfunny Iraq War joke. All I want to on a car show is super cars in exotic locations, not sneering political digs.

The actors are just the face of the corrupt and ugly Hollywood machine. New talent comes in and their minds are poisoned from the get go. Writers, producers, directors, the whole mess don´t just shove their agenda down the country´s throat, they fund anti-Americanism across the cultural and political landscape.

I can´t imagine they´ll turn things around and treat us with any respect, in turn they´ll get none from me.

Alicia covered my complete list very well. J. K. Rowling was the hardest one to reject after her brilliant work on the Harry Potter stories so I´m going to assume that her money corrupted her and attracted her to the wrong crowd.

Stephen King started sliding left long after he lost his talent and began to write pablum.

I think it´s funny that these people think their opinions mean more than anyone else´s. They are who they are because of talent, looks, and just pure luck. I suspect some are even conservative, but can´t speak out for fear of ruining their careers. Those people are the ones who keep their mouths shut, and you never hear anything from them.

My first and much lamented write-off, Barbra Streisand. For decades her vocal cords had me swooning. Then she shared her ignorance. Suddenly her appearance no longer foreshadowed enchanting melodies. Instead she became Hillary Clinton, harpy.

I´m so used to liberal, leftist celebrities, but in recent years, GW has disappointed and saddened me the most with his words and attitudes-- siding with the Clintons and against President Trump.

One commenter said he/she only goes to movies because of the content, not the stars. Uh, no. If you patronize the movie for any reason, you put money in the pockets of the very stars you vilify. In short, don´t go. Make the sacrifice.

Six years ago, when deranged people were targeting Sarah Palin with their bile because she visited Chick-fil-a, I posted some of their comments on my FB pg along with the link to the Legal Insurrection post where the truly vile insults were listed. A woman, whom I hadn´t seen or talked to since we were little kids, left this comment (which was not edited as I have done): "You die. B-t-h, never want to be associated with you, evermore, b-t-h."

As I said, I had had no contact with her for decades, so I looked her up and learned tha, at that time, she was a lecturer in elementary education in a midwest university.

#18 I have no doubt in my mind if I posted anything conservative online, the people I work with,(many many supposedly loving, bleeding heart left wing non profits}, would attack me. I am totally business only online and in my business life. I have no choice. Yet these people are free to post as much anti-trump vitrol as they like and they do.

It helps to never conflate the performance of entertainers, athletes included, and admiration for their work, with admiration for their character.

When entertainers themselves conflate their prowess on stage, court and field with intellectual and philosophical superiority it certainly grates and can cause harm to those who fail to separate their talent in their field with character.

The need to declare one´s "side" is one of the most divisive trends in the country and beyond. It sends the signal that politics belong in the everyday life and rather than simply disagreeing with others they are choosing to disassociate. They are begging us to add them to the former list if we dare disagree.

At least we still have Clint Eastwood.

I stopped going to many if not most of these jerks films a long time ago. Why are they such moronic ingrates? Don´t they realize where their money comes from? American industry built the movie business. Have they no gratitude? We pay their salaries and for their homes, cars, private jets and their children´s education. Shut up jerks.

I vote with my money. I will not spend a penny on any of their products. I´ve been adding to my list steadily over the years beginning with Barbra Streisand and Jane Fonda way back. Yep, DeNiro, goodbye! Sadly, Sean Penn and Kevin Spacey, goodbye! Never liked Danny Glover so that one is painless. NFL? Same thing. There are plenty of sane folks with talent. So, I watch Quigley Down Under at least once a month. Onward...

These people exist for my entertainment. That´s all. I´ll take them out of their box and allow them to amuse me at times of my choosing. I´m prepared not to care about their politics, odious as they may be. I simply don´t care what they think.

That´s my two cents.

It has been a pet theory of mine that the only reason that the Left has any devotees outside of those engrossed in identity politics is because their women are easy. Get loose women devoted to your cause and the men will follow, up to an certain age. Note the number of Leftist women that are single well into their 30´s. Thus their slavish devotion to abortion. It´s only a theory, but a lot of it makes sense.

Absolutely agree with Alicia on the Bush family. They took the Clintons to their hearts ("like another son," "my brother from another mother") despite their obvious character flaws, sexual predation and corruption.

I almost wish Heb! had gotten the nomination so that the Bush family could have experienced the public flaying the Clintons would have unleashed on him. All Trump did was call him "low energy Jeb." The Clintons would have destroyed him.

Entertainers seem to believe that they have some magic knowledge of the world that the rest of do not because they are famous. I have always found them in general to be the least educated and the least articulate (when they do not have a script) group in the country. I do not promote boycotting. I just personally do not invest my money in any of them.

I agree with every name the great Alicia mentions! The list would be much shorter if she only named the ones that are still worth watching and, sadly, most would be dead. Like John Wayne, William Powell, Ward Bond, Bogart, Myrna Loy, Olivia de Havilland, etc.

I´d quickly add that the following names Alicia forgot are also all dead to me now: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fay, Jimmy Kimmel, Cher, George Clooney, John Legend, Whoopie Goldberg (sorry Lucianne for the same last name!), The Oprah, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon, Debra Messing, LeBron James, Ben Stiller, Samuel Jackson, Jennifer Lawrence, Bette Midler, Richard Gere, Johnny Depp, Arnold Schwarzenegger ... I could go on but I won´t. And these are just off the top of my head!

Lastly, the patrician Bush family ... like all snotty and wealthy WASPs ... believe they are to the manor born and therefore like anyone who supports them. Their fondness for the Clintons is directly connected to those grifters helping them in ways we don´t know about. Many people in "high places" often have low-life friends ... just in case they´re needed.

About the only things from Hollywood I will tolerate is Blue Bloods, NCIS, Blacklist and maybe one more. Since getting streaming and a Roku box, I have found a literal world of entertainment out there that is vastly superior to most of Hollywood´s dreck.

The news came out last year about Chinese investors and the Asian market being their target market. Gotta tell you folks that if you are sensing something off about the latest movies you are not imagining it. They no longer make movies aimed at the American market, it is all about the fastest growing market for their stuff. Asia.

If you want to see how an entertainer should handle a political question check how Elvis Presley handled a question about the Viet Nam war on June 9,1972. He apparently was conservative. He once said the one entertainer he couldn´t stand was Jane Fonda because she hurt her country.

Manafort threatens legal action against
Guardian after ´false, ´libelous´
report he met Assange
Fox News, by Greg Re    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 11/28/2018 7:11:00     Post Reply
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort suggested on Tuesday in a statement obtained by Fox News that he might bring legal action against The Guardian, after the newspaper published what he called a "totally false and deliberately libelous" report claiming that he met with Wikileaks head Julian Assange the same month he joined the Trump team. Shortly afterwards, Wikileaks posted on Twitter that "Assange has instructed his lawyers to sue the Guardian for libel over fabricated Manafort story and launched a legal fund to boost the action."

A suspicious package at the address of Robert De Niro’s restaurant was being investigated by the NYPD on Thursday. Police said they responded to reports of a suspicious package in the Tribeca area of Manhattan. The address where authorities were investigating is associated with De Niro’s restaurant, Tribeca Grill, and his production company Tribeca Films. An Italian restaurant is located next door.

The exodus of migrants walking through Mexico is, no doubt, a real story. It’s just not the same story that much of the American news media is incredulously — at times hysterically — telling. The “caravan crisis,” said an ABC News graphic, added with some classic false-equivalency in its chyron: “Both sides seizing on immigration as mid-term nears.” An “army,” was how the Associated Press described the migrants in a much-criticized tweet that was later deleted.

Republicans on Capitol Hill have added enormously to the public´s understanding of what happened in the Trump-Russia investigation. They´re still doing it. But it will come to a screeching halt if the GOP loses control of the House in next month´s midterm elections. The driving force behind the revelations is House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. But a number of other Republicans in the House, including Reps. Trey Gowdy, John Ratcliffe, Bob Goodlatte, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, and others have also played critical roles. (In the Senate, Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley has done key work,

‘The world is not a dark and evil place,” insists an exasperated woman played by Judy Greer in Halloween. “It’s full of love and understanding!” I put the question to the class: Is she right? In the new film (not a reboot but a sequel that occurs 40 years after the events in the 1978 original and ignores all intervening Halloween movies), the woman, a mom named Karen, is forever grumbling about her Parris Island–style upbringing. Her mother is Laurie Strode, played once again by Jamie Lee Curtis.

A Eurobarometer poll has found that Italy has become the most eurosceptic country within the European Union as only 44 percent of Italians would vote to remain in the bloc if a referendum were held. The results of the survey were much different when Italians were asked about keeping the euro, with 65 percent saying they supported Italy continuing to use the currency, Il Giornale reports. The Italians are much less positive on membership of the EU compared to the average across the political bloc in which 66 percent said they would favour remaining in the union. Italy is even less positive on the European Union than the

Nikki Haley’s surprising resignation on October 4 as US ambassador to the United Nations fueled rumors about the underlying reasons for its suddenness and timing. Was she positioning herself for a future Senate or presidential campaign? The speculation about the forty-six-year-old former South Carolina governor’s future was accompanied by a wave of media praise that recast her as a moderate alternative to the hypernationalist commander in chief. “Nikki Haley Will Be Missed” was how the New York Times editorial board headlined its assessment of Haley’s time at the United Nations. The editors praised her as a

Now that the dust is settling on the Kavanaugh affair, it is well to remember that much of the concern over the stance he may take as a judge could be unjustified. These are life appointments, and judges’ views change once they are installed. The calculation of a solid conservative majority is apt to be fragile in fact. There was a great liberal bench installed by Franklin D. Roosevelt, after he terrified the Supreme Court with his legislative effort to pack the court in 1937.

ABC’s Roseanne-Free ‘Conners’ Premiere

The ratings are in for ABC’s Roseanne Barr-free The Conners season premiere, and the show has fallen far behind Roseanne. According to the Hollywood Reporter: In metered-market households Tuesday night, The Conners drew a 7.5 rating/12 share, off about 35 percent from the 11.6/19 for Roseanne‘s premiere in March. It was Tuesday’s second highest-rated show in metered markets, behind NCIS (8.1/13). The hourlong Roseanne premiere ended up with 18.44 million viewers and a 5.2 rating among adults 18-49 in Nielsen’s same-day tally.

Nine Lies the Media Are Telling You

Spreading lies to benefit the Democrat Party is what the establishment media do. For example, over the weekend, NBC News fabricated the lie that President Trump gushed over Confederate General Robert E. Lee. This was a deliberate lie to smear Trump as racist, and it was only corrected by NBC after the lie had run its course. Over the same weekend, CNN crafted its own lie to make Donald Trump Jr. look racist.

Gloria Steinem´s Rape Cover-Up

Second wave feminism, edgy, in-your-face, bra-burning feminism reached its crescendo in the late sixties and early seventies. The Pill hit the market at the same time which immediately opened a brave new world – a world where sex was de-coupled from reproduction. Almost overnight, marriage and motherhood were deemed to be “below” the aspirations of young girls who were encouraged to pursue careers rather than eligible men. Gloria Steinem’s Ms. magazine was at the forefront of this movement. Marriage was out, children were out, free love was in, and it was definitely fun while it lasted.

Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski had to apologize for what some perceived to be a homophobic joke on Morning Joe Wednesday. Brzezinski called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was “wannabe dictator’s butt-boy.” “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, Heilemann makes a good point, he doesn’t care. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Mika Brzezinski said of Pompeo’s response to a question about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi. She continued, “Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox & Friends, is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator’s butt-boy?” Mika’s joke

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.
