Short Takes – Does Hollywood Matter Any More?

Opinion

Apparently, the Tony award’s were on last night. I didn’t know. It was in todays news when it was revealed once again, that the IQ level of actor Robert DeNiro, who publicly expressed his deep level of disdain, or rather his hatred for President Donald Trump, hadn’t changed.

When a celebrity uses only base rhetoric to express an opposing political opinion, such as using the one word that best describes one of life’s more pleasurable functions betweens the sex’s, as a statement of fact, then we have achieved the collapse of polite discourse and the sure sign that DeNiro’s “Peter Principal” level has been reached. DeNiro has achieved his highest level of intellectual attainment, a triumph of idiocy over debate. To the cheering Hollywood crowd, his word is final, but nobody really cares anymore, do they? Now, it’s only a news item.

The world is focusing on historic events: the just concluded G-7 Trade summit, the ludicrous after Trump statement by Canadian Premier Trudeau, the land creation going on in Hawaii and the land melting event in Guatemala, not to mention President Trumps mission to Singapore for a singular historic event, the first ever summit meeting between a North Korean despot, Kim Jung Un, and the President of the United States, and we are favored with DeNiro’s opinion.

We are in a whirl of world shaping news events to the point we almost can’t keep up and an aging pretty good movie actor, DeNiro, of no specific intellectual achievement, chooses a medium most Americans have stopped viewing, award shows, to offer up once again his learned opinion on the President of the United States.

What DeNiro reinforced by his tirade was that the Hollywood of today is no longer important except as a money raising machine for Democrats. Hollywood is disappearing, much of it having moved right here to Georgia. Most Americans already know what DeNiro thinks about conservative politics and it’s newest spokesman, Donald Trump, so we can safely ignore it.

What hurts most is the wild cheering by attendees applauding DeNiro’s version of the “truth” as DeNiro so cunningly expressed it. Some call the actor an “outspoken critic” of Trump, and he is but, who cares anymore? DeNiro can never speak his opinion without employing the lowest level of his rhetorical skills, using the “F___” word again and again. Maybe it’s his highest level.

These seemingly constant televised award shows by the entertainment industry patting itself on the back, have morphed into political action exercises by the Left to confirm their anti-American, anti-conservative and pro-Clinton opinions. They do it in the certain belief that simply because they have achieved celebrity or get a nomination to receive a silly trophy that has to be dusted once a week, that their opinion really matters. That is a delusional level above which people with excessively highly developed egos, like movie actors, rarely advance. The odd man out of course, is Donald Trump. His ego is his driving force and achievement, its reward.

Hollywood once expressed America’s culture in great movies; the culture that defeated the Nazi’s, the Japanese and later, economically, the Soviets. That’s the culture that drew thousands of intelligent immigrants to our shores to become Americans, not the culture of Hollywood today, demanding social changes Trump won’t give them. Theirs is the culture of political correctness, profane ideas and nasty words. Theirs is the culture of sexual exclusivity, diversity, inclusion, glorifying sodomites and multiculturalism, the direct antithesis of Americanism. Trump has changed the formula for success and they can’t stand it.

Short Takes – What Has Hollywood Done Now?

Opinion

What has Hollywood Done Now?

Well, well, well, In yet another staged gala event awarding themselves statues and recognitions, The Golden Orbs awards ceremony, filled with Hollywood’s beautiful people dressed in black to make a visual statement about something that irks them, joined together with unbridled enthusiasm to proclaim their new messiah, Oprah Winfrey as their 2020 Presidential choice.

That won’t go well with the Democrats who still have their usual suspects, the elderly Joe Biden, Chuckie Schumer, Barry Sanders, the Indian maiden, Liz Warren, and dementia challenged Nancy Pelosi, hanging around their necks like albatrosses or hangman nooses. No, Oprah is good for preaching the Progressive line, expressing costly empathy for the poor and downtrodden, the illegals and homeless and those living in the shadows, but not as president. That simply won’t do! One presidential disaster is enough to overcome.

Admittedly, Oprah made a wonderfully stirring speech against something or other, the powerlessness of women one supposes, that could be classified right up there with Obama’s speech to the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago a few years ago. That speech, like Oprah’s, quickly brought Obama instant political recognition and then the presidency a few years later which he promptly set about “changing.” Obama was a fascist. Oprah is a products salesman.  

For 2020, the elephant in the room is the sitting President, Donald Trump. He is getting things done by setting America back on it constitutional tracks, while being the constant object of left wing media derision, fake news attacks designed to undermine his administration, and personal attacks against his family, his associates and his administration. Oh, hell, attacks against anything Conservative and everything Trump.

The need to make comparisons cannot be ignored. Both Trump and Oprah are very wealthy in their own rights and that recommends them for good business sense. Trumps skills lie in recognizing where money can be made, not out of wacky ideas or from printing presses, but of seeing potential in community growth, offering people what they want and buying property to build structures that will accomplish those goals. He spreads the wealth. So does Oprah, but on a commercial scale of product identification and salesmanship. She’s very good at it.

Other skills Trump enjoys is the ability to successfully negotiate with people, to make them happy with the deal, as well as making his investors happy. That’s called Capitalism and the fall out for it is increased employment for the communities he builds in and taxes for government.

Oprah is wealthy because she knows how to sell products, save her money and spread wealth and happiness to the people she employees and the people she hocks her products to. Not too shabby, and another great example of Capitalism at work. Both are hard workers and it shows,

But Trump also saw how quickly a rogue government can steal a populations economic vitality by ignoring the rules of economics (socialism) through onerous rules and regulations. He sought to correct it by running for President with the expressed purpose of making America great again. The people bought it and he is doing exactly what he promised he would do, like Jesus kicking the money changers out of the temple.  2020 is three years away. Can Hollywood really sell us Oprah? Can she do what Trump has done? That remains to be seen, but don’t bet on it.

Andrew Breitbart and exposing ACORN

Politics, Videos SV

Andrew Breitbart was a Conservative activist, journalist, author, editor, radio personality and the list goes on. He understood the Left so much so that he knew exactly how to intimidate the Left. Breitbart even referred to John Podesta as his mortal enemy. He also supported the exposure of corruption of ACORN that catalyzed the downfall of its reputation and ensuing bankruptcy. You can watch the documentary, Hating Breitbart, to better understand who he was and what his legacy stands for today. It was reported that he died from natural causes on 1 March 2012, and the peculiar timing of his death has sparked much speculation.
