Tinseltown is Turning on Bam
New York Post, by Andrea Peyser

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 10/15/2012 4:06:29 PM

Look out. Hollywood is having a Republican crisis. Once America’s most dependable bastion of liberal blather, the land of make believe has gone rogue. Each week, the new movie season brings another defection to Camp Romney, a place where taxes are less punishing, foreign policy is reliably pro-Israel, and stupid movies like “Innocence of Muslims’’ are not blamed for costing American lives. It’s the terrorists, stupid. You can see this sea change in the new Ben Affleck-directed movie, “Argo.” Once an ardent Obama-phile, the disaffected Hollywood hunk has chosen this election season to take on

Comments:
When I saw the ABC item below about the Hollywood liberal elite - I was reminded of this article that I read earlier today.

Hmmm, last week on O'Reilly, Affleck said he was still an Obama supporter and planed on voting for him.

Follow the money.
Remember the Dixie Chicks? We buy enterntainment, the Left makes it. If the Left is making entertainment for the Left, who is buying it? Nobody, because there isn't anything there for us.

Their money is drying up because they have alienated their customers. The only ones making money now are those who support our ideals.

Don't know what to think here.

Seeing the name Ben Affleck and "brilliant" in the same paragraph makes me question this author's critical thinking skills.

Andrea, you are a bit too gullible. Affleck is a liberal. He will campaign for and give money to Obama. He will vote for Obama. But he is smart enough to know that alienating half the public with his liberal views will cost him money at the box office. So, he tries to straddle the fence when asked...don't buy it.

This is simple...Libs or not they can't make money on their political drivel in movies...so they are going where the money is just like any Lib!

Thing I do is NOT go to their movies no matter what the subject is...they always slip in something to ruin it.

Ahhh, sorry Andrea...we ain't buying it. This group of Mensas who make a living doing make believe live in an honest to goodness make believe world. It's the one where Utopia, world peace, green energy, free love, socialism, and oversized egos is the norm. As long as they've got theirs, which they rarely "spread around", everythings good.

He just knows what he needs to do to make money.

It was Gay mogul David Geffen who in 2007 started the Hollywood romance with Barry Obama.His primary goal was to have a president who would remove the ban on Gays in the military and legalize Gay marriage. He got what he paid for.

Exaggerated. A few more conservatives have shown themselves but Affleck isn't one of them. Much of Hollywood is just having buyer's remorse and wishes they had chosen Hillary who is every bit as bad and incompetent as 0bama.

I saw Argo and it was excellent. I don't doubt that it will be nominated for best picture.

George Clooney and Ben Afflack were coproducers.

Despite his highly influential religious office, he makes time to sit with the people, comfort the sick, and help the poor. He often forgoes traditional fancy threads and maintains a quiet, humble disposition. He is, above all things, a pastoral man. If you think we´re talking about Pope Francis, think again. His support transcends ideology. Both conservatives and liberals seem to really love him. If you were to see Cardinal Seán Patrick O´Malley walking around in his characteristic brown smock, with a small ego but a big laugh, you might not even realize that he is the single most important

From humble beginnings in the 1970s in their Oklahoma City garage, David and Barbara Green launched what is now the sprawling nationwide commercial enterprise, Hobby Lobby. Their company – now owned entirely by five members of the Green family – is now at the epicenter of an important legal battle over the breathtaking reach of the Affordable Care Act. At issue is whether – due to the Greens´ deeply held religious objections – the Hobby Lobby owners have an enforceable freedom-of-conscience right not to provide several contraceptive methods (four out of the 20 ACA-required methods) to the crafts company´s employees.

The Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s office found millions in cash and jewelry in offices and apartments connected to ex-Energy Minister Eduard Stavytsky and ex-Food Minister Mykola Prysiazhniuk. The new government in Kyiv is cracking down on officials in ex-President Viktor Yanukovych’s administration. After he was ousted, the full corruption of his administration was exposed. Over 32 searches took place at all the firms and apartments connected to Stavytsky. "When a search was being conducted in an apartment formerly owned by Stavytsky and, from March 15, by a legal entity, two safes and files of documents were discovered. A woman was caught

The most powerful politician in my former home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is not the Governor. It’s the Speaker of the House.

On the day after state and federal investigators raided his State House office and home, House Speaker Gordon D. Fox has announced his intention to resign as speaker.

So in the Post’s view, it is acceptable to publish articles that are both literally false (Koch is the largest tar sands leaseholder) and massively misleading (the Keystone Pipeline is all about Koch Industries), if by doing so the paper can “stir and inflame public debate in this election year?” I can’t top Jonah Goldberg’s comment on that howler: By this logic any unfair attack posing as reporting is worthwhile when people try to correct the record. Why not just have at it and accuse the Kochs of killing JFK or hiding the Malaysian airplane? The resulting criticism would once

The famous lagoon city of Venice has voted to break away from the rest of Italy. Eighty nine per cent of Venetians backed the move to create their own sovereign state in a referendum on independence. They want to create the "Repubblica Veneta", which would not only include the city of Venice but surrounding areas. Venice, which attracts tens of thousands of US tourists each year, has been part of Italy for 150 years but before that was a powerful city state, naval and commercial power. The city lost its independence after being captured by Napoleon in the late eighteenth

Science is rife with corruption, incompetence, dishonesty and fabrication--and now, thanks to a frank resignation letter by the US´s top scientific misconduct official we have a better idea why. David E. Wright, a respected science historian, has just quit his job as director of the Office of Research Integrity (ORI; part of the Department of Health and Human Services) and is scathing about his experiences there. In his resignation letter, he accuses his boss HHS Assistant Secretary for Health Howard Koh of running an organization which is "secretive, autocratic and unaccountable." He writes to Koh: In one instance, by way

A Tea Party candidate became the first ever state senator in Pennsylvania to win as a write-in candidate on Tuesday in a special election that showed how dissatisfied voters are, even at the local level, with both organized political parties. During the campaign, conservative Republican Scott Wagner was blistered by establishment Republicans that he accused of "orchestrating the special election in such a way to hand the seat, vacated by Mike Waugh in January," to the establishment Republican candidate Ron Miller. According to the Patriot-News, Wagner captured 48 percent of the vote in York County while Democrat Linda Small got 26

   

 



 
Poll: Latinos souring on Obamacare
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 3/20/2014 4:29:28 PM     Post Reply
A new poll shows Latinos -- a fast-growing and key demographic in American elections -- aren´t as fond of Obamacare as they once were. The Pew Research Center poll showed Hispanics are split on whether they approve of President Obama´s health-care law, with 47 percent approving and 47 percent disapproving. The numbers are notable because Latinos have generally been among the health-care law´s chief supporters. Other polls have shown they supported the law by a 2-to-1 margin, and a September 2013 poll, before the law´s implementation, showed 61 percent of Hispanics approved of it. Another key minority group that tilts

The American Physical Society (APS) has signalled a dramatic turnabout in its position on "climate change" by appointing three notorious climate skeptics to its panel on public affairs (POPA). They are: Professor Richard Lindzen, formerly Alfred P Sloan Professor of Meteorology at Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a highly regarded physicist who once described climate change alarmism on The Larry King Show as "mainly just like little kids locking themselves in dark closets to see how much they can scare each other and themselves."

MOSCOW - Russia imposed retaliatory sanctions on nine U.S. officials and lawmakers on Thursday as tension over Moscow´s annexation of Crimea mounted, warning the West it would hit back over "every hostile thrust". Deputy national security advisers Ben Rhodes and Caroline Atkinson and senators John McCain, Harry Reid and Mary Landrieu, Dan Coats and Robert Menendez were among the Americans barred from Russia, the Foreign Ministry said. The others were House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner and Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

Vice President Biden told healthcare workers that "patience and empathy" are required to deal with frustrated ObamaCare enrollees and that the president demonstrated saint-like levels of both during the rollout. Speaking to a conference of community health centers in New York, Biden conceded that enrolling in ObamaCare could be "tedious," and early problems with HealthCare.gov worsened the problem. "We didn´t help you much at the front end here, man," Biden said, adding that he wanted to recommend President Obama "for sainthood" because he maintained his patience through the early technical problems with the website.

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
