Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech
New York Times, by DANIEL VICTOR and GIOVANNI RUSSONELLO

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 1/9/2017 7:18:53 AM

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Comments:
OH, Meryl, Get over it

Leftists, journalists and actors are all in the "Make-Believe" business.

Forgive them, Lord, they know not what they do.

Nor do they care.

Would some one please correct these jerks to say trump was mocking a disabled person. That disabled person was mocking trump. Trump had every right to respond.
Isn´t it wonderful we have such elite people to guide us in our every thought and deeds.
Thank goodness for the hallmark channel.

I still don´t get it. Why are these wealthy Hollywood elites Socialists? They have made their millions in our Republic and have cashed in on the capitalist system. The taxpayers who pay to see them voted for Trump. When they criticize Trump, they criticize us. These are the same people who are so desperate for attention that they are taking their clothes off in public by the droves. Many are high school dropouts and alcoholics and druggies. They make a mockery of marriage, fidelity, and motherhood. They are the most disgusting group I can think of. My boycott has already started.

I really do not need some movie star using an occasion of accepting a phony award to tell me (and obviously the entire world) how we should think. It is wildly inappropriate, it is an insult to the award, and we honestly do not care what she thinks.

You really want us deplorables to go to movies? Then quit insulting us. As it is, I go to about 2 a year. Meryl, you would do well to emulate the great Denzel Washington. Not only is he a better actor than just about anyone I can think of, but he is gracious, humble and charitable. Acting is just his job, he doesn´t let it define him.

Ok Meryl, let´s talk about truth. Are you attacking real concerns or myths? Shall we start with the "violence incites violence" bit? I´ll be darned there was violence incited at Trump rallies.....by Hillary. I must have missed it when you spoke out against the BLM inspired very real war on police incited by a phony charge of police violence. And since you are so concerned about slights against those less fortunate I hope you recall that Hillary preyed upon the mentally disabled to do her dirty work. Your voice emanates from the cesspool of hatred and corruption.

I don´t watch most movies and never current television unless it has actors I don´t know anything about and have grown to dislike.

Old Hollywood understood the need to make "stars" larger than life; to hide their feet of clay. Now, they are all about proudly showing off their baseness and arrogance. What they forget it that people don´t listen to or watch entertainers they don´t like, and holy cow are they growing more and more unlikeable.

The entertainment industry is a business. The financial backers of films expect to make a profit. When you are deliberately insulting half your customer base you obviously think you are above the petty capitalist concerns of your employers. The movie business is drying up and this is why.

#9 to your question - Rush has answered this many times. If you come out in support of the leftist ideology, then you are spared criticism. You hear many times people saying they know actors or performers that are conservative, but are afraid to proclaim that publicly. Rich people supporting causes that hurt the little people they claim to want to help because it secures their place with the "in crowd". Then it´s ok for you to be wealthy if you throw money or your words at worthless causes.

An actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us, and let you feel what that feels like.

Huh, and I always thought their job was to pretend, better than most, how to be people they could never be in real life.

As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, take your broken heart, make it into art.

See? Carrie Fisher was so good at pretending, apparently Meryl thinks she really was Princess Leia. That´s some damn good acting right there.

So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

And NASCAR Meryl, you forgot NASCAR. But the good news is that YOU won´t be kicked out because you´re ´merican. No fence climbin´ back south for you girlfriend unless of course Trump can get Putin to hack the fence and force you out as well. MMMMWWWAAAAAHHAAAHA!!!!!

I have boycotted Hollyweird for at least the last 40 years. In that time I have viewed perhaps 6 or 7 films most of those to take my grandsons, as children, to a movie such as Spiderman. Unfortunately I can´t stop my family from adding money to the accounts of over rated a..holes (Lucianne doesn´t allow me to spell in full but Hollyweird can use Hitler,Stalin,white supremacist when describing Trump. some thing wrong here)like Cher,Streep.Pacino and especially ones I don´t ever recall seeing in the ad running now that bad mouths Trump. WHO are those people?
If you are really interested in stopping them and their "look how good I am" award shows keep your money in your pocket and do not attend the crap the put out.
Why do they have a national platform and I´m reduce to Tweets,e-mails and posting on Lucianne? Stay home even if you have to watch NBA basketball.

"when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose"

Like BO, like the dems, like the media? These people have been attacking, belittling, lying about, demeaning, and smearing their opposition for decades. But nasty things done in service of liberalism is "justified" because they are "right" and "virtuous".

Calling these people out for their lousy actions is not bullying, it is SELF DEFENSE. Liberals have tried to use political correctness to smother dissent. You can´t criticize BO, that´s racist. What???

As to the "vilified" media, why do you suppose that is so? Because the media has lied, smeared, hidden stories about dems, and generally been an arm of the DNC? They are completely untrustworthy and are being treated as suce. They have EARNED their status, as has most of Hollyweird.

Here´s a heads up Meryl: I´m done with you, Tom Hanks, and all the other Hollywood-be leaders of America. Never again will I spend a nickel on anything related to any of this bunch of Hollywood liberals...never. In one week you and your buddies haveslimed our White House kissing the statue of Abraham LIncoln, eating waffles and chicken at 40 am with the worst POTUS and FLOTUS in the history of America, dancing like frenetic idiots all over America´s house and peeking in the window of the oval office...on and on. You shove your crackpot edicts down our throats and we´re supposed to love and admire you. Sadly, I once admired you and thought you a great actress. That´s yesterday. Seeing this room full of overpaid, under talented, boring rich liberals air kissing each other and shedding crocodile tears over nothing except one of their various causes, seeing a DeCaprio who has to be certifiably identified as brain dead treated as though he´s a brilliant contributor to science, and then Meryl Streep making a very large arse out of herself was sickening. How I wish all of you had to be trapped in a room with the wrinkled old hag liar Hillary who had the only microphone so you couldn´t get away from hearing her for the rest of your lives.

Last night you looked a bunch of classless phonies sitting like hens on nests waiting for eggs to hatch so you could take credit for whatever is the next feckless cause that pops out.

So Meryl, sweetie, take your mega $$, Tom Hanks and Leo DeCaprio, Stevie Spielberg, mean old Barbra, and copies of your movies and enjoy. The real world is writing you and your pals off. For good.

Someone needs to ask Streep why she gave rapist Roman Polanski a standing ovation but doesn´t defend Bill Cosby who did essentially the same thing (drug/rape) only with adults instead of children.

Is she a racist? Or attracted to pedophiles? I´d like to know before I spend anymore money in a Hollywood that supports this kind of thing.

#9 asks "Why are these wealthy Hollywood elites Socialists?"

Decades back, Jane Fonda and comrade Tom Hayden led a program to corral new Hollywood talent and fill their heads with leftism. It wasn´t an outlying, stand alone initiative but rather sanctioned, institutional brain washing.

Hollywood´s World War 2 hyper patriotism gave way quickly as the Cold War ramped up, the left took over.

It would seem today the indoctrination continues apace. Knowing the background of some of today´s "stars" and seeing how far they´ve turned the other way is just sad. I think many know what´s going on in Tinsel Town but no one will dig up the truth. Where are the talented insiders/academics who can expose the level and depth of Hollywood´s hard left coercion? There´s a huge book waiting to be written. Name names, yeah, I said it.

I used to watch these shows all the time with my mom when I was growing up. Once they started flooding them with political attack speeches instead of thank yous, I stopped watching. Why put yourself through all of that nonsense when you can just check online later to see who actually won, if that´s important to you in the first place.

If you´ve ever heard Streep speaking off the cuff, you probably came away with the impression that she´s a remarkably stupid woman. You may have asked yourself "this is someone who was educated at Vassar and Yale?" Rambling, incoherent, speech laced with profanities (a sure sign of a lazy intellect). Pretty sad, really.

Based on what I´ve observed of Hollywood actresses through the years, I´ve developed a theory that talent is conversely correlated with intelligence. The more talented the actress, the stupider the actress. Streep is an extremely talented actress.

"Mr. DeMille, I´m ready for my close up!" Norma Desmond (yes, a character, not a real person) had more relevance in her later years than this hag!

Yes, there are some conservatives in Hollyweird, but the bulk of them are lefties. I think part of it is their wanting to belong, but many believe the drivel they have been taught by their peers in the industry. And then there are some who will do anything to get work.

Did not watch the awards program, but saw network evening news channels running clips of her delivering her speech and had the impression that she was emoting—not speaking from her heart. She had an international audience and took advantage of it to, sadly, try to undermine a man who wears his patriotism on his sleeve.

Has globalism gone off the rails?
Jewish World Review, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 5/25/2017 8:49:01     Post Reply
PRAGUE -- The West that birthed globalization is now in an open revolt over its own offspring, from here in Eastern Europe to southern Ohio. About half of the population in Europe and the United States seems to want to go back to the world that existed before the 1980s, when local communities had more control of their own destinies and traditions. The Czech Republic, to take one example, joined the European Union in 2004. But it has not yet adopted the euro and cannot decide whether the EU wisely prevents wars of the past from being repeated or recklessly strangles freedom

The younger brother of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi reportedly knew he was planning an attack in Manchester weeks ago. Hashim Abedi, 18, was arrested in the Libyan capital Tripoli, along with their father Ramadan Abedi. Another son, 23-year-old Ismail, was arrested in Manchester on Tuesday. At least 22 people were killed and dozens seriously injured when Abedi, 22, detonated a device as fans left an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena on Monday night.

The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat has been charged with misdemeanor assault after he is alleged to have slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting, “Get the hell out of here.” Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire endorsed by Donald Trump, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.

On collusion, John Brennan´s incomplete story
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

Former CIA Director John Brennan´s appearance before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday rekindled the hopes of Democrats and others searching for proof that Donald Trump or his associates colluded with Russia to interfere with the 2016 election. But Brennan gave the committee old information — he frankly admitted it was old — that did not take into account what has been learned in recent months from other sources. In short, this is what Brennan said: In the summer of 2016, I saw contacts between Russians and people in the Trump circle. I worried that the Russians were trying to

Robert Mueller -- the former FBI director now overseeing the Department of Justice´s investigation into Russia´s election-year meddling and contact with the Trump campaign -- has been briefed on the contents of some of the memos that former FBI Director James Comey kept to document his conversations with President Donald Trump, according to a person familiar with the matter. Additionally, he has already visited FBI headquarters, where he met with the counterintelligence agents who have been working on the case since last July, according to two people familiar with the matter. In one memo, Comey wrote that Trump asked him to end

A man wearing a ´Make America Great Again´ hat delayed a flight for several hours on Sunday after he took a seat that did not belong to him and refused to move. A spokesperson for the airlines said the elderly man at the center of the controversy sat down in the wrong seat on an international flight from Shanghai, China, to Newark, New Jersey, and then refused to comply with crew instructions for hours, according to WESH. Passenger Clark Gredoña shared multiple photos and videos of the incident on Facebook, along with a detailed account of the events that he

House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Monday said he will postpone a hearing scheduled for Wednesday after speaking with former FBI Director James Comey, who had been invited to testify. “Spoke with Comey. He wants to speak with Special Counsel prior to public testimony. Hearing Wed postponed. @GOPoversight,” Chaffetz tweeted. Comey has agreed to a separate request to testify publicly before the Senate Intelligence Committee, a session that’s expected to be scheduled for after Memorial Day. The hearing will give Comey a chance to weigh in on the circumstances of his firing earlier this month. Senators are also certain to ask him about

At this rate, it won´t matter if
Trump colluded with Russia
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 5/23/2017 6:41:39     Post Reply
Throughout the Trump-Russia investigation, the core question -- the question that mattered above all others -- was whether President Trump or his associates colluded with Russia to try to influence the 2016 election. If there were proof of that, the effect on Trump´s presidency would have been devastating, and possibly fatal. The problem, for the confederation of Democrats, pundits, Obama holdovers, and NeverTrumpers who hoped to see that result, has been that so far, after a lot of investigating, no evidence has emerged that collusion actually occurred. Although they allowed that previously unknown proof could always emerge, last week some

How odd: During the eight years of one of America’s shadiest presidencies, not one Obama administration official went to prison. Or was convicted of a crime. Or even indicted. Sure, Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA) and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held plenty of hearings. But while they called countless press conferences, not one Democrat ever was held accountable for the numerous crimes exposed by this and other Republican-controlled congressional panels. Let’s stroll down memory lane and see how the Democrats acted when they investigated real or fabricated Republican scandals. When the Watergate “Plumbers” (so called because their clandestine

WASHINGTON — When President Donald Trump sits down for dinner in Saudi Arabia, caterers have ensured that his favorite meal - steak with a side of ketchup - will be offered alongside the traditional local cuisine. At NATO and the Group of 7 summits, foreign delegations have gotten word that the new U.S. president prefers short presentations and lots of visual aids. And at all of Trump’s five stops on his first overseas trip, his team has spent weeks trying to build daily downtime into his otherwise jam-packed schedule. It’s all part of a worldwide effort to accommodate America’s homebody

KIEV, Ukraine — A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin. “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a

At least two separate news organizations are reporting that three distinct leakers have been identified at the White House and that President Donald Trump is expected to fire them when he returns from his first overseas trip. “CBS News has confirmed from two sources that three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired,” CBS News reported this week, adding, “Officials within the Trump White House believe leaks of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are a ‘deliberate attempt’ by officials who are holdovers from President Obama’s administration

A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one.

After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her

Angela Merkel has stunningly claimed Europe can no longer rely on the US, just one day Donald Trump frustrated world leaders at the G7 meeting in Italy. The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the US and other challenges. Merkel said Sunday at a campaign event in Bavaria: ´The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.´ The comments came after the G7 countries were unable to agree to a deal that would see the 2015

Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump

Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in

It’s pile-on time for America’s commercial airlines. The contempt people hold for them has long been severe, but following a raft of highly publicized incidents, resentment has hit a fever pitch. It started about a month ago, with the forced removal of a passenger onboard a United Express flight. This was followed by several more airlines-behaving-badly controversies, up to and including the death of Simon, a giant rabbit who perished after a London-to-Chicago United flight. Over and over we are reminded about the hellishness that is commercial flying. Enabled by cellphone cameras and the catalyst of social media, even the most

The sun has set on students’ request to change the date of their prom. Students at an elite New York City high school petitioned to change the date of their senior prom – scheduled for June 3 – because it conflicts with the Muslim observance of Ramadan, but the school has denied the request, the New York Post reported. (Snip) Still, Muslim students said eating after sundown is not the only issue; they say there are other religious rules that come into play. “You’re not supposed to listen to music during Ramadan, so it’s not really allowed,” Shabbir said.

French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged to a French newspaper that his intense handshake with President Trump ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels "wasn´t innocent," but instead was meant as a show of resolve, The Associated Press reported Sunday. "One must show that you won´t make small concessions, even symbolic ones, but also not over-publicize things, either," he told Le Journal du Dimanche, according to the AP. The handshake between Macron and Trump on Thursday drew attention for its visible intensity, with both pairs of knuckles turning white from pressure.

U.S. President Donald Trump has informed multiple individuals, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, that he intends to remove the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, according several sources. On Saturday night, Axios reported the news based on “three sources with direct knowledge.” Breitbart News has independently confirmed this reporting and that Trump has told others the same thing: that he plans to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement. Earlier on Saturday, the President tweeted from Italy that he would make his final decision next week as to whether the U.S. will remain in the Paris Accord. He was in
