Why a “Roseanne-less” Reboot Would Bomb Bigger Than Hiroshima

June 2, 2018

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views. – William F. Buckley, Jr.

According to Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com,

There is some cautious optimism that Roseanne, cancelled by ABC on Monday, could continue without co-creator and star Roseanne Barr. I hear the show’s producers will be meeting with Disney-ABC executives on Monday to pitch a revamped Roseanne without the title star (and likely the original title too). 

Details about the concept that will be pitched are unclear but the show is expected to stay true to the praised first season of the revival — the series’ 11th overall — featuring the other cast members except Barr. There could be stronger emphasis on Sara Gilbert’s character Darlene, which can be expected since the revival was centered mainly on three characters, Roseanne (Barr), Dan (John Goodman) and their daughter Darlene (Gilbert) who moved back home with her kids.

As we previously reported, executive producers Tom Werner, who also executive produced the original series, and Gilbert, the main driving force behind the revival, are believed to be spearheading the efforts to continue the show and keep the writers, led by executive producer/showrunner Bruce Helford, and crew employed post-cancellation.

While prospects for a Roseanne 2.0 look a little brighter today than they did immediately after the show’s sudden cancellation. Still, sources close to the situation caution that there are major hurdles to overcome. While independent production company Carsey-Werner owns and produces Roseanne, there are legal and rights issues that need to be settled as Barr was co-creator and executive producer on the series and has ownership/backend. Warner Bros. TV’s decision to fire Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen and continue the show without him resulted in him filing a $100 million lawsuit against the studio, eventually settled for $25 million that WBTV paid him to cover his backend.

Barr already attacked two of her Roseanne cast members, Michael Fishman and Gilbert, who had condemned her Valerie Jarrett tweets before announcing that she forgives them. She also has indicated in her relentless tweeting over the past few days that she is ready to fight back. It is unclear whether that would involve litigation but she may mount a legal challenge should a Roseanne spinoff without her goes forward.

I am sure that Sara Gilbert wishes to move forward. This would be the starring vehicle that, I am certain in her mind, could propel her to stardom, as it did Roseanne.

There’s just one problem: Americans are already familiar with Ms. Gilbert from her role as a co-creator, producer, and panelist on the Afternoon female gabfest “The Talk” on CBS and a recurring role on “The Big Bang Theory”. She is also a “married” lesbian, political activist, and environmentalist, who has written a book titled “The Imperfect Environmentalist: A Practical Guide to Clearing Your Body, Detoxing Your Home and Saving The Earth (Without Losing Your Mind)”.

The problem is…she is not ROSEANNE.

While I am certain that the Liberal Echo Chamber in the Halls of Power at Disney/ABC/ESPN sees that as a plus, average Americans here in America’s Heartland will not.

For all her faults, missteps, and loudmouth obnoxious behavior, average Americans had come to embrace the revival of her television show after 20 years because they felt that it painted a realistic picture of a family attempting to cope and navigate their way through the tough issues of today.

It also helped that Roseanne and her producer were both Trump Supporters.

Even Roseanne admits that what she tweeted was harsh and she apologized for it.

However, as has been pointed out in the last few days, the behavior of Liberal Television celebrities and Talking Heads towards the 45th President of the United States of America and average Americans who voted for him and who support him to the day has been so over the top that it makes Roseanne’s tweet about Valerie Jarrett pale in comparison.

And that, gentle readers, is the main reason why a Roseanne-less Reboot would fail.

The majority of Americans will not want any part of it because of ABC’s perceived Liberal Agenda to oust Roseanne and the Liberal hypocrisy toward their own insults and vulgarities toward the President, his family, and his supporters, which the American Public has witnessed en masse nightly on their TV screens since before the 2016 Presidential Election.

If ABC is so insulated that they believe that a politically correct version of “Roseanne” featuring her television daughter would be a success, then they really have no clue.

However, Self-Absorbed Liberals that they are, they will try it, it will fail, and they will place the blame on the “limited intellect” and “closed-mindedness” of Trump Supporters.

It’s just what they do.

For reference, please watch videos of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN reporting the events of the evening of November 8, 2016.

Why the “Roseanne” Revival is a Hit

March 29, 2018

untitled (232)

“I think we need to converse more, but more than anything we need to get involved and run our government for ourselves instead of sitting back and wanting somebody else to do it. Even voting isn’t enough. You have to be involved. I talk about this with my grandkids – you have to get in there and get your hands dirty if you want things to go the way you want them to go. We’re lucky in this country that we can do that. We can really get our hands dirty and put our big collective shoulders to the wheel and change and fix things. I think that’s what’s exciting about our country right now.” – Roseanne Barr

Deadline.com reported yesterday that

Roseanne made a triumphant return last night, blowing past projections with a 5.2 adults 18-49 rating and 18.2 million total  viewers for the debut of its revival, which drew 10% more viewers than the original series finale 21 years ago.

While nostalgia was expected to bring in eyeballs, no one predicted such a huge turnout on premiere night for the blue-collar family sitcom with a Donald Trump-supporting protagonist, especially among the younger demographic. But then, few also predicted that Trump would become the Republican nominee and would win the Presidential election when he first announced his candidacy.

Both Trump and Roseanne were able to tap into the often overlooked and underserved working-class audience. Not surprisingly, the top TV markets where Roseanne delivered its highest ratings were in states handily carried by Trump during the 2016 Presidential election. No.1 was Tulsa in Oklahoma, which Trump won with 65.3% of the vote. It was followed by Cincinnati, Ohio and Kansas City, Missouri. The only big city from a blue state in the Top 10 was Chicago at No. 5 — that is the area where the series is set. ABC focused some of its marketing efforts in the region with a preview of the revival at the 54th Chicago International Film Festival.

The top market of the country, New York, was not in the Top 20; No.2 Los Angeles was not in the Top 30. And yet, Roseanne delivered the highest demo rating for a comedy telecast in 3.5 years, since the fall 2014 season premiere of The Big Bang Theory.

There no doubt was an element of nostalgia and curiosity about how the characters have changed and about the new generation of the Conners. But Roseanne went beyond that. Its youngest 18-49 viewers when the series originally aired on ABC from 1988-1997 are now at the very top or outside of the ad-friendly demographic, in which last night’s premiere posted a staggering 5.2 Live+same day rating with no lead-in. It came largely from new viewers who were children or not even born during Roseanne‘s initial run.

Imagine that.

A series returning to television after a 20 year hiatus about a working class family living in a town in the Heartland of America, whose outspoken matriarch is an adamant Trump Supporter, kicked major behind in the ratings.

Who’d da thunk it?

Certainly not the Liberal Expert Television Programmers and Critics in Hollywood and New York.

You know them. They are the same geniuses who came up with the idea for the Rosie O’Donnell variety show, “Rosie Live”…that mercifully lasted for only one episode.

The same Liberals who are in shock over the ratings success of the return of “Roseanne” are the same ones who have been crying since November 8, 2016 because they did not get their way.

This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run the Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming nor the ratings success of the returning “Roseanne”.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th, 2016, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

Average Americans living in America’s Heartland are the reason that Donald J. Trump is our 45th President.

Roseanne Barr and the Producer of her program are both Trump Supporters.

They took a gamble and gave Americans what has been missing from Prime Time Television: a program that reflects the reality of what is actually happening in the homes of average Americans as they deal with the problems of their daily lives and the economic mess that Obama left our country in.

This hard slap to the face of the Hollywood Hoi Polloi has them reeling.

What I am wondering, though, is how long they will allow such a “heretical” show to stay on the air.

It takes the absurd notion that they have been peddling for years that Americans all share their Far Left Political Philosophy and knocks it on its hindquarters.

So, congratulations to the cast and crew of “Roseanne”.

And, watch your ”six”.

ABC doesn’t like it when you tell the truth…even when your show is popular.

Just ask Tim Allen.

VP Pence Calls for Joy Behar to Publically Apologize – Why She Should

March 13, 2018

28124659_10211815364523212_959131735_o

Last night, Vice-President Mike Pence appeared on Sean Hannity’s Program on The Fox News Channel. While there, he touched on a number of subjects, including the now-notorious incident in which Joy Behar insulted the VP (and all Christians) for having a personal relationship to Jesus Christ in which he talked to Him, saying that it was a “mental illness”.

Behar has since called Pence to apologize, as the following article posted on FoxNews.com reports…

…“I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you’ve been forgiven,” Pence told Hannity.

Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, “I’m not as good at it as you.”

While Pence forgave Behar, he encouraged her to publically apologize.

“I’m still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended,” Pence said.

“You and I know that criticism comes with public life,” Pence added. “But, I felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander.”

Behar’s call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week’s meeting with investors.

“What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?” shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger directly at Thursday’s meeting. “Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?”

Iger responded by saying, “I don’t know where I start. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate.”

Iger told the crowd he was “glad to hear” Behar apologized because he “takes exception” to what she said. ABC insiders said executives initially wanted to keep the call between Behar and Pence, but Iger mentioned it while defending his company.

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar’s private apology was “not nearly enough” and promised to continue his campaign against “anti-Christian bigotry” at the network. Bozell’s watchdog group is presently running a campaign on behalf of aggrieved Christians, urging that viewers contact “View” advertisers about Behar’s “hateful, anti-Christian remarks.”

Despite the calls for a public apology from both Pence and Bozell, ABC insiders have told Fox News that it doesn’t appear that any action has taken place.

“ABC is doing absolutely nothing about this,” an ABC source recently told Fox News.

Why would Joy Behar make such an ignorant comment in the first place?

Well, gentle readers, Modern American Liberals like Behar want you to believe that Christian Americans are a bunch of nut jobs.

They have even rewritten history in their attempt to ignore the truth.

Those weren’t Muslims who came over on the Mayflower.

According to adherents.com

There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. There were 48 signers of the Articles of Confederation. All 55 delegates who participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 are regarded as Founding Fathers, in fact, they are often regarded as the Founding Fathers because it is this group that actually debated, drafted and signed the U.S. Constitution, which is the basis for the country’s political and legal system. Only 39 delegates actually signed the document, however, meaning there were 16 non-signing delegates – individuals who were Constitutional Convention delegates but were not signers of the Constitution.

There were 95 Senators and Representatives in the First Federal Congress. If one combines the total number of signatures on the Declaration, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with the non-signing Constitutional Convention delegates, and then adds to that sum the number of congressmen in the First Federal Congress, one obtains a total of 238 “slots” or “positions” in these groups which one can classify as “Founding Fathers” of the United States. Because 40 individuals had multiple roles (they signed multiple documents and/or also served in the First Federal Congress), there are 204 unique individuals in this group of “Founding Fathers.” These are the people who did one or more of the following:

– signed the Declaration of Independence
– signed the Articles of Confederation
– attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
– signed the Constitution of the United States of America
– served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
– served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress

The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an “American Founding Father.” But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.

Religious Affiliation of U.S. Founding Fathers

# of Founding Fathers/% of Founding Fathers

Episcopalian/Anglican 88 54.7%
Presbyterian 30 18.6%
Congregationalist 27 16.8%
Quaker 7 4.3%
Dutch Reformed/German Reformed 6 3.7%
Lutheran 5 3.1%
Catholic 3 1.9%
Huguenot 3 1.9%
Unitarian 3 1.9%
Methodist 2 1.2%
Calvinist 1 0.6%
TOTAL 204

Christianity, the faith of the overwhelming majority of Americans, has not only played a part in the birth of our nation, but also the shaping of its Domestic and Foreign Policies.

Liberals remain on a quest to separate the “Faith of Our Fathers” from day-to-day American Life and their Far Left Political Philosophy because they live by the mantra of relative morality and situational ethics.

That is why they always say, “All pathways lead to God”.

Just like the Founders fought against King George’s tyranny, Modern Christian Americans are still fighting against tyranny: “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

However, unlike the tyranny in England that our Founding Fathers escaped from, no one in this present free nation has ever been forced to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

And, that fact is extremely evident in some of the comments one sees on Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites.

But, I digress…

In recent times, especially under the Former Democrat President, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), a concerted effort was made to marginalize Christian Americans, putting us in a box if you will. A lot of Liberals and “libertarians” still seem to believe that Christian Americans should only practice our faith on Sunday Mornings from 9 – 12, and be seen and not heard the rest of week.

That is why Joy Behar, ABC, and The Disney Company were so surprised when Christians came to the defense of Vice-President Pence, sending letters and e-mails and making phone calls to the offices of ABC and The Disney Company, resulting in Behar’s private apology.

I agree with the VP. Behar now needs to apologize to the millions of Christian Americans whom she has offended.

However, I do not see that happening anytime soon.

…Unless the backlash continues and hits The Disney Company square in the pocketbook

…again.

Did Disney Make “Black-ish” Cancel an Episode About the NFL Protests?

March 12, 2018

 

Respect_America_final_crop_2__37487.1519235151.1280.1280-640x480

“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!” – Donald J. Trump on Twitter

NBC Sports Pro Football Talk reports that

The ABC sitcom Black-ish has never shied away from hot-button political topics. But NFL anthem protests are apparently a bridge too far.

Kenya Barris, the creator of Black-ish, confirmed that ABC declined to run an episode of the show that included characters arguing over football players kneeling for the national anthem. The episode was set to run on February 27 but was replaced with a rerun, and ABC has no plans to air the episode or make it available on any other platform.

“Given our creative differences, neither ABC nor I were happy with the direction of the episode and mutually agreed not to air it,” Barris told Variety. “‘Black-ish’ is a show that has spoken to all different types of people and brought them closer as a community and I’m so proud of the series.”

There’s been no indication that the NFL leaned on Disney (which owns ABC and ESPN) not to air the show, although Disney has been accused of kowtowing to the NFL in the past. In 2013, a report that the NFL pressured ESPN to pull out of a PBS Frontline show about concussions was denied by the NFL. In 2003, the NFL convinced ESPN to cancel the entertainment show Playmakers, which depicted professional football players engaged in illegal activities.

Six months ago, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the NFL needs to move past the anthem issue. Six months later, this latest controversy shows the country has still not moved past it.

Hey, gentle readers, do you want to know why the Commish said that the NFL needed to “move past” the protests six months ago?

And, why that episode of “Black-ish” did not air?

“Creative differences”, my hindquarters.

In both cases, it was all about the Benjamins.

Per Breitbart.com from an article posted January 28th…

With the 2017 NFL season now down in the record books as having lost another ten percent in TV ratings, the league has found a $30 million dip in ad revenue, a report says.
As the final numbers for advertisement sales for the season were tallied, the league discovered that its revenue fell 1.2 percent because “makegoods” rose to beat rate increases. A makegood is a partial repayment of money charged to advertisers because the viewership did not reach the expected numbers to justify the top rate.

Revenue was reported at “$2.42 billion, down from $2.45 billion in 2016,” according to media industry trade magazine Ad Week. That is a $30 million loss according to Awful Announcing.

Even though advertisement rates went up on average across the networks, the hike in fees did not beat the paybacks that the league had to repay to its customers.

By November, Roger Goodell could fell the hot breath of torqued-off fans on the back of his neck. A Fox News Poll taken back then showed that

Forty-four percent think kneeling during the national anthem is appropriate, up from 41 percent who felt that way last month and 32 percent who said so last September.  Sill, a majority thinks it is inappropriate (52 percent).

Most Republicans (88 percent inappropriate vs. 12 percent appropriate), baby boomers (61-33 percent), men (60-37 percent), and whites (60-38 percent) think kneeling during the national anthem is inappropriate.

The opposite is true for Democrats (67 percent appropriate vs. 27 percent inappropriate), millennials (65-32 percent), and nonwhites (61-30 percent) who think kneeling is an apt form of protest.

Women (50 percent appropriate vs. 45 percent inappropriate) and independents (46-50 percent) are more divided on the issue.

Voters who have an unfavorable opinion of the N.F.L overwhelmingly think kneeling is inappropriate (78 percent), while those who view the NFL favorably think it’s appropriate (62 percent).

So, the question remains “Did Disney force the shelving of that episode of “Black-ish”?

I believe that they did.

The Disney Empire, including its Theme Parks, relies on the good will of average Americans.

If average Americans stop supporting Disney and all of their entities, including Disneyland and Disney World, the Disney Corporation will be in a world of hurt.

And, ABC is owned by Disney.

I believe that what we have witnessed in the case of the backlash against the NFL Protesters is the same thing that happened on November 8, 2016.

Just like the Presidential Election, average Americans decided that we had had enough of the intentional tearing apart of the fabric of our nation at the seams, for the sake of political expediency and selfish gain.

Just like the Democrats found out on November 8, 2016, average Americans will tolerate being abused and lectured to for only so long, before we let you know “how the cow ate the cabbage”.

And, in the case of the 2017 NFL Regular Season, a lesson was taught by average Americans, the NFL Fans who burned their Season Tickets and NFL Jerseys, and stayed at home instead of going to the games.

If that episode of “Black-ish” had aired, loyal Disney Fans may have damaged that brand like the loyal NFL Fans damaged the league…by taking a big bite out of their revenue stream.

And, if that happened, Goofy may have been laid off…and he would have been forced to seek a new job which he was qualified for.

And, unfortunately, the Democratic Party already has a Chairman.

Until He Comes,

ABC Decides to Commit Mass Seppuku, Gives Alec Baldwin His Own Talk Show

February 28, 2018

40b08070-2506-11e7-979c-fd13be8ca553_SuperfanTV_s2017e076E_NIGHT_ColbertBaldwin_.png

“I don’t try to communicate with my ‘audience’. I don’t bother with that any more. I used to try to have conversations with people, but it’s futile.”  – Alec Baldwin

FoxNews.com reports that

ABC is betting big on Alec Baldwin, announcing on Tuesday that it has ordered a talk show series with him as host — despite his history of controversy and disastrous talk show at MSNBC.

According to the network, the new show, titled “Sundays with Alec Baldwin,” will feature the host in a very similar format to his successful WNYC podcast. Each hour-long episode will see him sit down for a one-on-one conversation with two guests for an in-depth conversation about the top pop culture topics of the day. ABC says it will air a “sneak peek” of the new show on Sunday, March 4, immediately following the Oscars.

“I’m excited about this show and grateful to ABC for taking a chance on me in what is, admittedly, a crowded field,” Baldwin said. “I’ve enjoyed doing my podcast for WNYC and look forward to the challenge of doing a show on camera.”

The sneak peek will feature Baldwin, who currently hosts “Match Game” as part of his production company’s first look deal with ABC, interview his friend Jerry Seinfeld and “Saturday Night Live” star Kate McKinnon.

This is Baldwin’s second attempt to parlay the success of his podcast into the television format. His previous show “Up Late with Alec Baldwin” was canceled at MSNBC in 2013. Amid behind-the-scenes conflicts and low ratings, the award-winning star sealed his own fate after making a homophobic slur toward a New York Post photographer that prompted severe backlash from pro-LGBT advocacy groups.

In a video picked up by TMZ, the star calls the photographer a ‘c— s—ing f—-t.” At the time, Baldwin blamed this as the cause of his departure from MSNBC in a lengthy column with Vulture also that announced his short-lived retirement from the public eye.

Despite his past history of failure in the talk-show space, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey seems undeterred going into his next venture for the network.

“Alec’s intellect, wit and wealth of life experience afford him a voice and perspective we haven’t seen before in this format,” she said. “When we shot the pilot, we knew immediately we had something special that we couldn’t wait to share. We are excited to be working on a series that showcases Alec as one of today’s most compelling conversationalists and highlights the type of intimate discussions that he has captured on his podcast for years.”

Currently, there’s no word on when the series will air after Sunday’s sneak peek. However, given its title, audiences should reasonably expect Sundays to feature follow-up episodes.

How avant-garde. How sophisticated. How…boringly Liberal.

I knew that the networks were scrambling for programming but…sheesh.

I imagine that this will be in the style of all of the modern “sophisticated” Politicized Late Night Talk Shows which have destroyed a once very entertaining genre.

Late Night Talk Shows first appeared on the scene in 1954 with the arrival of The Tonight Show . They really became popular with the debut of a young Midwestern guy by the name of Johnny Carson, when he took over the hosting duties of the Tonight Show, in 1962.

Each host of the Tonight Show, before the current one, brought something unique and entertaining to the table. Steve Allen brought both comedy and musical ability. Jack Paar brought urbane sophistication. Johnny Carson brought masterful comedic timing and  a Midwestern “Aw, shucks” feel to the show. Jay Leno, was the “Everyman”…the wisecracking guy next door, whom you could find on the weekend with his head stuck under a car hood.  And, Conan O’Brien brought…err…umm…never mind.

Being the “old codger” that I am, I remember Johnny Carson very well.  Johnny had a natural, easy-going Interview Style, which allowed him to talk to anyone on his show, from a 7-year-old to Movie Stars.

And, while Carson skewered BOTH political parties in his monologues, he never brought up his political affiliation on the show. He felt that if he invited politicians on the show, that would turn off his viewers, as they tuned into his show at the end of a long, hard workday, to be entertained, NOT PROSELYTIZED TO.

That would come later, as the Programming Geniuses at ABC, NBC and CBS turned” Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” and “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” Propaganda Machines for the Democrat Party.

Former “CBS Late Show” Host Letterman took his duty as the mouthpiece for the sophisticated, urbane Democrats up in the Northeast Corridor so seriously, he even attacked Former Republican Vice-Presidential Candidates Sarah Palin’s children in a monologue, which he later was forced to reluctantly apologize for, due to the blistering blowback which CBS received from average Americans in the Heartland, burning up the phone lines in protest.

Letterman eventually became a national joke on his own, through his indiscretion involving a female staff member.

This yearning by Colbert, Fallon, Kimmel, and the rest of the Liberals at the Broadcast Networks to seduce the “Young and Hip” into watching their shows, by basically turning the Talk Show Entertainment Format into a Political Interview/Satiric Commentary Program, has been the genre’s downfall.

As Liberal Democrats always do, they underestimated the intelligence of Americans living in the Heartland and overestimated their own East and Left Coast Metropolitan hipness and savoir faire.

If people want to watch someone suck up to the Democratic Party, they can tune in to the Nightly News on the three Broadcast Channels, CNN, or, if they are really desperate, MSNBC.

By giving the sickening Liberal Bully Alec Baldwin his own Talk Show, ABC continues to program for a very select audience.

American Liberals only make up 24% of America’s population.

The majority of America’s population, especially those of us living between the coasts, could care less about what Alec Baldwin has to say.

We remember when Alec Baldwin was caught calling his 11-year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless pig” during a phone call in 2007 that was heard after the fact on radio stations from coast to coast.

His boorish public behavior has certainly not improved any since then.

Perhaps he will gain a miniscule audience among the Low Information Voters.

Those who aren’t trolling Facebook when ABC decides to air his show, that is.

Why ABC is Getting Blasted for “The View’s” Attack on VP Pence’s Christianity

February 18, 2018

28124659_10211815364523212_959131735_o

“I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness. And I’d like to laugh about it, but I really can’t. It’s just wrong. And it’s an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith. My Christianity is the most important thing in my life.” – Vice-President Mike Pence

FoxNews.com reports that

ABC is facing mounting criticism after its panelists on “The View” mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith. Detractors of “The View” are focusing on the fact that ABC News, which claims to be an unbiased broadcast news operation, oversees such a nakedly partisan program with one “token” conservative.

The women of “The View” took a shot at Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a “mental illness.”

Sunny Hostin said it’s “interesting” that former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman recently said that Pence talks to Jesus and believes Jesus tells him things. Hostin said she is a “faithful” Catholic but doesn’t want her vice president “speaking in tongues.” Joy Behar then said, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you… that’s called mental illness.”

ABC News paints itself as a fair news organization but its longtime slogan, “See the Whole Picture,” often doesn’t apply to “The View,” according to many critics.

“It has become jarring how fixated the show is on politics and how slanted the table is,” Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfsohn told Fox News.

Wulfsohn said it’s ABC News’ prerogative if network executives decide that having four outspoken liberals and a single “token” conservative is “profitable” but the decision “does a great disservice” by marginalizing the view of roughly half the country.

…Pence himself didn’t appreciate the comments and slammed ABC News Wednesday on C-SPAN.

During the Obama Administration, I wrote an ongoing series of articles highlighting “The War on Christianity” being waged on an almost daily basis by that President and his Administration, along with the Democratic Party’s minions in the Main Stream Media.

Now, we have a new President and Vice-President, who, gasp, actually support Christianity in America and are not shy about invoking the Name of God Almighty in their public speeches.

Heaven forbid! Well…Heaven doesn’t forbid…it encourages.

But, the Harpies on “The View” certainly want to.

The thought of an omnipresent God interferes with Modern Liberals’ belief that they are the most important thing in the universe.

You see, as long as they are the master of their own destiny, which in fact they are, because God gives us free will, their selfish behavior and their sinful lifestyle, present no personal consequences to them, and therefore, do not keep them awake at night. And yet, when you enter into a conversation with a member of this hedonistic generation, you soon find out that they aren’t as personally happy with their lifestyle choices, as they want you to believe that they are. Consequently, this whole effort by Political and Social Liberals alike, to push a new set of morals, values, and ethics on average Christian Americans, stems from the fact that they are all miserable, selfish, little cretins, who want their poor lifestyle choices validated and deemed as normal.

As I have stated before, America remains 75% Christian. And, this fact drives the Far left, including the current “Selfish Generation”, absolutely crazy….and desperate.

The Pharisitical reaction of Joy Behar and the other “ladies” on the show (I’m being charitable…after all, it’s Sunday morning) to Vice-President Pence’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ boggles the mind…but, it shouldn’t.

The disconnect shown by the self-appointed tribunal of all that is Liberally deemed to be acceptable Christianity is the same exact disconnect shown by the East and Left Coasts in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Unlike Modern Liberalism, Christianity as practiced by Americans is not just one “flavor”, or a “Hive-mind”, if you will.

And, while Ms. Behar and the rest of them were having a great time sitting in judgment of Vice-President Pence and his relationship with Our Lord and Savior, the overwhelming majority of Americans who proclaim him to be their Savior, as well, were offended by the intolerance of those who bill themselves as being the most tolerant people in any room that they walk into.

For you see, gentle readers, Christianity has never been about who can talk the talk.

It’s about walking The Walk.

Mike Pence walks The Walk.

And, like the Liberal Woman whom they supported in the 2016 Presidential Election, it is very apparent that the Modern Day Pharisees on ABC’s “The View” only talk the talk.

And, in the end, as history is their witness, they will appear to have overestimated their collective intelligence, also.

Free Speech for Me. None for Thee: Intolerant Liberals Strike Down “Last Man Standing”

May 15, 2017

The-Last-Man-Standing-Tim-Allen

You gotta be real careful around here (Hollywood). You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. This is like ’30s Germany. – Tim Allen

Truer words were never spoken.

Heatstreet.com reports that

It’s TV upfront week, which means major network cancellations are being announced left, right and center.

But the liberal ABC Television Network’s decision to axe Tim Allen’s hit Friday night comedy “The Last Man Standing” has caused consternation among fans who suspect the highly rated multi-camera sitcom has been nixed primarily because of Allen’s right-of-center political beliefs.

The show was ABC’s second-most-watched comedy this season, with 8.1 million viewers, only behind “Modern Family”. Deadline Hollywood, which broke the news of the cancellation, reported that “The Last Man Standing” was “hitting ratings highs in its sixth season.”

Many viewers of the show think that the decision is being made by liberal ABC, owned by Disney, primarily because the series is about an unashamedly conservative character (Mike Baxter) played by a conservative actor. Allen told Jimmy Kimmel in March that living in Hollywood right now was akin to being in Nazi Germany.

Leading the protest is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who tweeted: “Looks like ABC is playing politics with your show despite decent ratings. Sad.”

Many fans of the show are furious on social media and are calling for a boycott of the network.

There are four petitions on change.org begging ABC to re-consider their decision. Neither Allen nor the network have commented on the move, but ABC is understood to be citing the fact it doesn’t own “The Last Man Standing” (Fox produces the show) and the show’s aging viewer demographic to explain why it pulled the plug.

It is, however, also possible that it has do with ABC‘s reluctance to promote conservative politics on its network. It has been reported that Bob Iger, the longtime CEO of Disney, is flirting with an idea of running for president in 2020 as a Democrat.

He told The Hollywood Reporter back in June that “a lot of people—a lot—have urged me to seek political office,” but denied thinking about running for California governor or senator. (He didn’t deny the possibility of running for the White House.)

ABC’s beleaguered news division is also staunchly liberal. President Trump mocked ABC News “Chief Global Affairs Correspondent” Martha Raddatz (whose second of three weddings was attended by Barack Obama) for “crying” during election night coverage after it became clear Trump had won an historic victory.

“How about when a major anchor who hosted a debate started crying when she realized that we won?” Trump said during his “Thank You” tour in Cincinnati back in December.

(Raddatz has denied crying, though it certainly looked like it.)

Waterworks or no, ABC’s bias extends well beyond Raddatz. The network employs George Stephanopoulos, a former Bill Clinton operative, as its grandiosely titled “Chief Anchor and Chief Political Correspondent”. Stephanopoulos was exposed during the presidential campaign for having donated at least $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, and therefore had to grudgingly recuse himself from moderating any debates. ABC enriches Stephanopoulos to the tune of more than $10 million a year.

Furthermore, ABC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent Terry Moran referred to President Trump’s inaugural address as reminiscent of the anti-Semitic rhetoric of 1930s Nazi Germany.

ABC came under fire last year for its failed sitcom “The Real O’Neals” which cruelly mocked Irish Catholics. The hopelessly homophobic fictional Irish Catholic family in the sitcom had a statue of the Blessed Virgin above their toilet and made Jesus-shaped pancakes for breakfast. The executive producer of “The Real O’Neals”, Dan Savage, on whose life the sitcom was based, is known for his obscene sex advice column, and for gaming Google search results on conservative Christian Senator Rick Santorum so that the first search result for “Santorum” was a page defining the Senator’s name as “a frothy mixture of lubricant and fecal matter as an occasional byproduct of anal sex.” Savage also famously once tried to sicken conservative activist Gary Bauer by licking the door handle to his motel room.

ABC also recently was fiercely criticized for mocking police and Middle America with its March gay rights miniseries “When We Rise”, which appeared to glorify the firebombing of police cars and overwhelmingly portrayed white, straight characters as ignorant, hateful rubes.

Unlike “The Last Man Standing”, “When We Rise” was a catastrophic ratings bomb.

Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?

Average Americans are being treated as subhuman by the self-proclaimed “Smartest People in the Room”.

These “spoiled brats”, still weeping and wailing in the throes of self-afflicted agony over the miserable failure of Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on reinstating. restoring, and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, by trying to block President Donald J. Trump’s mandate which he was given by the average Americans who elected him the 45th President of the United States of America.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” funded by “non-profit” organizations, who are in turn funded by Former Nazi Sympathizer and Billionaire George Soros, has inspired these “protestors”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, Tim Allen, and the writers of “Last Man Standing”, to speak our minds and be heard.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th, 2016, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

This meltdown, as witnessed by Americans since the election returns came in on the night of November 8th, 2016, is a reaction caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest Premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct themselves and  comport themselves like those Hollywood Legends before them, who served their country during World War II, doing whatever they could to help America defeat fascism.

Now, these pampered ,self-righteous, oblivious Lightweights wish to restore to power the fascists that Americans defeated at the Ballot Box on November 8th, 2016 by possibly running the head of Disney, Bob Iger. against President Donald J. Trump in 2020?

A guy who allowed his “Braintrust” to cancel his second highest-rated Comedy on his Broadcast Network because it was a Conservative Show with a Conservative Lead Actor, and tick off millions of viewers?

Seriously?

Sounds pretty “Goofy” to me.

As we say down here in the part of America’s Heartland, known as Dixie…

It just don’t make no sense.

Why Are 53% of Americans Siding With Trump, Instead of the Liberal Assault Against His Administration?

March 6, 2017

17190867_1335145456524145_4213167423742818202_n

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for last Friday showed that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters approved of President Trump’s job performance.

As the story continued to unfold this weekend concerning The Obama Administration’s wire tapping of both then-Republican Candidate Trump and then-Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, I considered what kind of mindset that one would have to have in order to find some sort of justification in performing such an unwarranted invasion of privacy, while considering themselves to be “righteous” in doing so.

And then, as I sat down last night to write this post, I read the following story…

Heatstreet.com reports that

ABC can’t be accused of underplaying When We Rise, its eight-hour drama miniseries chronicling the struggles and setbacks of LGBT activists in the 20th century.

Some thought the show, created by award-winning gay activist Dustin Lance Black and aired on four nights this week, goes out of its way to portray middle America as intolerant homophobes. When We Rise received saturation ad coverage during the Oscars ahead of its premiere this week, to the extent that one Twitter commentator joked that if he drunk alcohol every time he saw an advert for the show, he’d be dead by the end of the Academy Awards broadcast.

But part one of When We Rise flopped on Monday. As a result, ABC rescheduled Modern Family to run just before the second installment to boost ratings. However, viewership of the second part fell almost 1 million viewers from its premiere, netting an audience of only 2.05 million on Wednesday, which is pathetic for prime-time slot on a commercial TV network.

The final part of the miniseries is Friday night. (President Trump’s address to congress on Tuesday delayed the show’s transmission by a day.)

Doubtless there will be devotees of the show who will blame the president for interrupting the flow of When We Rise, which stars Guy Pearce, Mary Louise Parker and Whoopi Goldberg.

But its failure more likely stems from the fact that viewers don’t respond well to ‘virtue scheduling’ on TV. When We Rise at times resembled an infomercial for GLAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders). Even the New York Times didn’t give the show a rave—when the Grey Lady sniffs that a starry gay-rights drama “plays like a high-minded, dutiful educational video,” you know the show is in trouble.

The marketing was also disastrous, with Lance Black coming across as vocal and passionate about his series but never seeming to make up his mind whether he wanted to appeal to Trump voters or take them on with his new creation.

On top of the ratings failure of When We Rise, USA’s gay-murder mystery Eyewitness was canceled, and CBS’s Doubt—the first network television show to feature a trans actress (Laverne Cox) as a trans in a lead role—was dropped after just two shows. In a piece about these shows, LGBT website The Advocate noted: “In a time when LGBT rights are under attack — and myths about queer lives still influence laws related to same-sex marriage, adoption, employment, bathroom access, and so-called conversion therapy — these depictions are vital to changing hearts and minds.”

Not as vital to TV audiences as changing the channel, it seems.

According to a post published by Gallup.com on January 3rd of this year,

Many more Americans have considered themselves politically conservative than liberal since the early 1990s. That remained the case in 2016, when an average of 36% of U.S. adults throughout the year identified themselves as conservative and 25% as liberal.

People in “Show Business”, and that includes the Main Stream Media, need to stop their self-appointed mission of spreading Liberal Propaganda.

As  the Media and Hollywood are finding out the hard way, average Americans want them to shut up and entertain and report the news.

That is the reason that Hollywood has been having more misses than hits, in the last several years, and the reason why Fox news remains the most watched cable news channel.

As Donny Wahlberg said a few months ago, the Liberals who run “Hollyweird” are totally disconnected from the average American’s belief system of ethics, values, and faith.

In other words, “Truth, Justice, and the American Way”.

All of the great movies and television shows my generation watched while we were growing up, reinforced those values.

One of the movies expected to be a blockbuster a while back, “The Lone Ranger”, cast Johnny Depp as Tonto, and rewrote the legend to center around him, instead of the title character.

The audience simply did not buy Captain Jack Sparrow as Tonto.

When Americans envision the crime fighting duo of the Old West, Americans see Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels. Two outstanding gentlemen, both on and off the television screen.

We knew that the Lone Ranger and Tonto would beat the snot out of the bad guys, and rescue the rancher’s daughter. We knew that James Bond would defeat SPECTRE and get the beautiful Bond Girl.

We smiled in admiration when we heard that Superman fought for “truth, justice, and the American Way”. We threw our rubber tomahawks at the trees in our front yards, just like “Daniel Boone”. We knew that John Wayne would rescue Dean Martin in “Rio Bravo”.

And, all the guys in the 1970s wanted a red Gran Torino with a white stripe down the side, like “Starsky and Hutch” drove.

Even though they “underperformed”, you want to know why  Americans go to see movies like “American Sniper”, the Captain America Movies, the Avenger Movies, the Spider-Man Movies, the X-Men Movies, and  “Guardians of the Galaxy”?

They are throwbacks. They are entertaining. They are not dirty or vulgar. There is plenty of action with a great story line wrapped around it, and GOOD TRIUMPHS OVER EVIL.

We go to movies to be entertained, not to be lectured to by a bunch of snotty-nosed, America-hating, relative morality, situational ethics-loving Liberals.

American Sniper shows very plainly that we can triumph against Radical Islam, the Political Ideology masquerading as a Religion, which Obama dares not call out by name.

Heck,  “American Sniper” even did well in Islamic Nations.

Why? As President Ronald Reagan realized, all those decades ago, the followers of Mohammed respect strength, not weakness.

So, why did Americans flock to see this movie in record numbers?

Americans were living vicariously through the late American Hero Chris Kyle.

Americans respected his legacy of heroism. That is why, when Former Professional Wrestler, and lunatic Jesse “The Body” Ventura sued Chris’ widow, Americans wanted to string him up in the middle of the Town Square.

As I have written several times, America is still a Majority Conservative Nation.

Look at an Electoral Map of what happened during the Presidential Election of November 8th.. America is a Sea of Red, with little Blue Enclaves, up in the Northeast and on the Left Coast.

“American Sniper” blew the doors off at the Box Office and at the Redbox Rental Kiosks, because average Americans are being forced to cut back on their Entertainment Budget.

Americans have to pick and choose very carefully the movies they go to, simply due to the high price of tickets, refreshments, and gasoline and Obama’s stagnant economy.

That is the reason that Redbox is so popular.

And, the reason why more Americans are “cutting the cable”.

Americans can choose to view the movies and television shows that they like to watch.

The minute-by-minute force-feeding by Hollywood and the sports and news industries of Liberal Philosophy and Ideals has irritated average Americans past the point of no return.

The “Silent Majority” of Americans still believe in traditional American Values and the concepts of right and wrong.

We refuse to be lectured by “The Smartest People in the Room”.

That is why no one is buying the accusations being leveled at Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump.

The Television and Film Industries need to figure out that there is more to America that the East and “Left” Coasts and stop trying to shove their “Culture of Death” down our throats.

Overestimation of their own intelligence and underestimation of the intelligence and backbone of average Americans, here in America’s Heartland, is what cost Modern American Liberals the White House and a Congressional Majority.

You would think that they would be trying to suck up to average Americans, instead of didactically instructing us as to what we MUST believe.

Because when they do that, it always backfires.

Please reference November 8th, 2016.

America’s Ongoing “Death By Political Correctness”. Curt Schilling Fired. Walt Disney Rolls Over in Grave.

April 21, 2016
disney-abc-espn__140321002134I believe firmly in the efficacy of religion, in its powerful influence on a person’s whole life. It helps immeasurably to meet the storms and stress of life and keep you attuned to the Divine inspiration. Without inspiration, we would perish. – Walt Disney, Guideposts Magazine, 1949
Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards – the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings. – Walt Disney

New York Times, August 1, 1995 – In the second-largest corporate takeover ever, the Walt Disney Company moved yesterday to create the world’s most powerful media and entertainment company, announcing that it would acquire Capital Cities/ ABC Inc. for $19 billion.The combined company would bring together the most profitable television network and its ESPN cable service with Disney’s Hollywood film and television studios, the Disney Channel, its theme parks and its repository of well-known cartoon characters and the merchandise sales they generate.

“These are the two premier family entertainment companies,” Michael D. Eisner, the chairman and chief executive of Disney, told a news conference in New York.

The deal, which had already been approved by the boards of both companies when it was announced yesterday morning, was a stunning surprise. In contrast to the much-discussed offer that the Westinghouse Electric Corporation is known to be preparing for CBS Inc., not a word had leaked out about a deal that would create the most powerful entertainment company in the world. Westinghouse is expected to announce its offer today. [ Page D5. ]

Driving the Disney deal is the belief at both companies that they will grow more quickly together than on their own. By acquiring Capital Cities, Disney will become the first media company with a major presence in four distribution systems: filmed entertainment, cable television, broadcasting and telephone wires, through its joint venture with three regional phone companies.

That pinwheel sound that you have been hearing is Walt Disney, a man of impeccable morality and ethics, rolling over in his grave.

The Hollywood Reporter explains.

Former MLB pitcher and game analyst Curt Schilling has been fired by ESPN.

“ESPN is an inclusive company,” said the network in a statement on Wednesday. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”

The 49-year-old once again found himself in hot water on Tuesday after he shared an anti-transgender meme over Facebook, which he later deleted. 

The meme opposed transgender individuals using the bathroom which correlated to their gender identity. 

In a later blog entry, after the meme was removed from his page, Schilling wrote, “I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of men’s and women’s restrooms, period.”

Schilling was previously suspended from ESPN’s baseball coverage for the remainder of the 2015 regular season and the wild-card playoff game after posting a tweet comparing Muslims to Nazis. 

At that time, the sports network said Schilling’s tweet was “completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective.” 

Schilling wrote in his blog Tuesday that he does not care about a person’s race, gender or sexual orientation, but added, “There are things I have deeply held beliefs in, things I have that are core to who I am, things I am passionate about. If you ask me about them it’s likely I’ll give you a passionate answer, whether you like that answer or not is completely up to you. I am not going to give you answers to make sure you like what I say, let the rest of the insecure world do that.”

Schilling retired from professional baseball in 2009 after 20 seasons in the league.

In a related story…

ABC fantasy series Once Upon a Time introduced its first lesbian romance Sunday.

Fans of the fairy tale drama expected sparks to fly between Mulan (Jamie Chung) and Aurora (Sarah Bolger), but it was Ruby (Meghan Ory) and Dorothy (Teri Reeves) who took the plunge.

The episode, “Ruby Slippers,” ends with Ruby breaking Zelena’s (Rebecca Mader) sleeping spell on Dorothy by awakening her with true love’s kiss. Mulan doesn’t take center stage but is on hand to encourage Ruby’s feelings for her friend.

“True love’s kiss has been a staple of this show since the beginning,” series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis said in a statement. “This past Sunday’s episode was just another example of how in a fairy tale, as in life, love is love.”

Horowitz and Kitsis had promised to include an LGBT storyline in Season 5 at the season premiere in September, saying they “would love to be able to tell a love story” that reflects the LGBT community’s support of the show.

“We want the show to reflect the world as it is now,” Horowitz explained. “It’s something we think is due and important to do on the show. This is the world we live in.”

Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET. The series co-stars Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White, Lana Parilla as Regina Mills and Josh Dallas as Prince David.

So, when did standing up for your beliefs and principles and speaking the truth become “politically incorrect”?

I am aware that political correctness has been around for a good while now.

However, when Barack Hussein Obama became President of the United States, political correctness seemed to become magnified by 100 fold.

For example, you cannot criticize Obama without being called a Bigot or a Raaaciiist.

This seems awfully hypocritical to me, because all of the self-proclaimed experts on political correctness called President George W Bush everything but a child of God.

Remember when Obama first got in the office? His Foreign Policy Team told Americans that we could no longer call acts of Muslim Terrorism, acts of Muslim Terrorism. They were to be known from then on as man-caused disasters.

The longer that the Liberals or “Progressives” remain in power, the dumber their attempts to enforce political correctness over Americans seem to be.

Ask Curt Schilling.

And, the more determined they are to force their Relative Morality and Situational Ethics down the throats of the actual overwhelming majority of average Americans, living here in “flyover Country”, who want no part of it.

For example, this ongoing attempt by Liberal “Entertainers” to somehow force the states of North Carolina and Mississippi to rescind the recent laws that they passed limiting the use of public restrooms to those of the “biological sex” that aligns with the label on the door.

Assignment by equipment.

A very easy concept to understand for the overwhelming majority of Americans.

However, Modern American Liberals are “special”.

Do you remember when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that Conservative Republicans,

Right-to-life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

and New York City Communist Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, publicly agreed with his remarks?

Imagine if the Governors of the states of North Carolina and Mississippi had proclaimed that all Democrats, Liberals, and libertarians, gay or strait “had no place in the state of Mississippi because that’s not who Mississippians are”.

Oh, Lawdy.

Democrat Pundits, and Liberal and small “l” libertarian Politicians, on both sides of the aisle, would have a bigger conniption than that of Michelle Obama, if she were told that she had to pay for her own vacations.

The statements that these Liberal “Entertainers” are giving, when they refuse to perform in North Carolina and Mississippi, strike me as ironic.  So does ABC’s statement in the defense of turning Disney Cartoon and Fairy Tale Characters into lesbians.

If this “standing up for what you believe in”, in the name of  “political correctness”, emanating from the mouths of “the enlightened”, was coming from the mouths of Christian Business Owners, it would be labeled as “hateful bigotry”…wouldn’t it?

ABC’s Scandal: Abortion Performed to “Silent Night”. Post-Abortion Cocktail to “Ave Maria”. Planned Parenthood Promoted.

November 23, 2015

th85XTKBQMYesterday, I wrote about this past weekend’s horrible Box Office results, and how out of touch Hollywood Liberals are with the values of average Americans.

Well, last Thursday Night, ABC sunk to a new low, so disgusting and blasphemous, that it defies description.

The word “SICK” doesn’t do it justice.

Last Friday, Ben Shapiro, Senior Editor at Breitbart.com, reported that

How vile is the television industry? They won’t just promote toleration of abortion. They won’t just promote abortion itself. They will sanctify abortion, turn it into a sacred rite of passage.

Last night’s Scandal featured main character Olivia Pope (played by far-left Obama acolyte Kerry Washington) undergoing an abortion. As they wheel Pope into the operating room, the soundtrack underneath plays the Christmas song “Silent Night” – a song dedicated to celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. After her abortion, the show cuts to Pope at home, drinking wine and smiling happily while looking at her Christmas tree. Now the show features “Ave Maria.”

Naturally, Washington saw fit to tweet about the episode by plugging abortion factory Planned Parenthood:

#IStandWithMellie #IStandWithPlannedParenthood

— kerry washington (@kerrywashington) November 20, 2015

The abortion followed character Senator Mellie Grant, a Republican, filibustering her own party to stop defunding of Planned Parenthood – a true television fantasy, if ever there was one, passing former Texas State Senator Wendy Davis off under the guise of Republicanism. Gross.

Planned Parenthood took advantage of the storyline to plug its killing of the unborn:

Tonight the millions of people who tune into Scandal every Thursday night learned that our rights to reproductive health care are under attack. Never one to shy away from critical issues, Shonda Rhimes used her platform to tell the world…We applaud Shonda Rhimes tonight – and every Thursday night – for proving that when women are telling our stories, the world will pause and watch.

Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the show and a television icon, is a major fan of abortion. In 2011, one of her Gray’s Anatomy characters had an abortion; Rhimes justified that decision by saying that the character would have had an abortion, and that it was better for the character to have an abortion rather than resenting her child. Adoption apparently never crossed Rhimes’ mind; better to just off the baby. At the time, she lied in interviews, “I don’t think it’s about the agenda,” although she added that one of the pro-life characters in Private Practice was “viciously” pro-life.In 2014, Rhimes came out of the closet fully on her agenda. She’s on the board of Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles, and she said:

Most accidentally impregnated characters, even young women who have only lived in a post-Roe v. Wade world, don’t bring up or even briefly consider the option of an abortion. It is as if it doesn’t even exist. And [that’s] weird and not realistic…let’s be serious about what’s really going on.
But of course, it’s not about just being serious that people have abortions. That’s just the great Hollywood lie: “We depict, we don’t push values.” Nonsense. Every creative decision is a choice between portrayals of certain values. If Rhimes had shown an abortion and then Pope devastated afterward, that would be one choice; instead, she chose to turn abortion into a full-on holy affair, complete with Christian odes playing in the background. Never do these shows depict a 3D ultrasound. That would be giving the audience too much information.

This is the new Democratic Party and the new left: freed from the shackles of “safe, legal, and rare,” the feminist left now cheers abortion as an affirmative good, something to smile about over cocoa while comfortably listening to religious music – because hey, you don’t have anything to feel bad about. Abortion is just something people do, rather like removing a kidney stone, only with a generalized feeling of empowerment. FXX’s You’re the Worst now terms abortion “abobo” to make a joke of it; NBC’s Parenthood championed a high school abortion in 2013. Abortion is now a pleasant decision with no moral consequences, a fun thing to do in your off-hours if you were just screwing around and decided not to slap on a condom.

Hollywood creates characters we care about. Hollywood creates friends for us, people with whom we schedule time once a week. Then, after creating those characters, Hollywood has them perform activities we find morally repugnant, but portrays those acts as decent. Being entertained requires not merely a willing suspension of disbelief, but a certain suspension of morality – how else could we stand watching the lies, betrayals, and acts of violence of every sort we routinely watch? Hollywood takes advantage of our entertainment-minded nonjudgmentalism and attempts to extend it to our general moral calculus.

It’s gross, and it is a violation of the unspoken compact between entertainers and their audiences. Decent people ought to tune out of Shonda Rhimes’ leftist tripe.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent  pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has a abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” writes:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

I know that there are some of you that read my blog that are non-believers.  For you and for my Christian brothers and sisters, I offer the following closing thoughts:

There is a curious unique enzyme found in the human body.   Laminin is defined by the Webster Medical Dictionary as a “glycoprotein that is a component of connective tissue basement membrane and that promotes cell adhesion.”  In other words, a glue within the body.

Colossians 1:15-17 tells us:

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

I believe that our nation and our leaders should realize that you cannot mock God. With actions come consequences. You know, that “cause and effect” thingy that “the Smartest people in the Room” are so found of bringing up.

Each and every life is precious to The Creator. That baby growing in her womb, is not the property of the mother. Each and every one of us belong to the One who made us. He is our Sovereign Lord.

All those who believe that “it is a woman’s right to choose”…think too highly of themselves.

For every life is a Gift from The Creator to be loved and cherished, as He first loved us.

As far as ABC and all those who cheered that glorification of a human sacrifice are concerned…

I have a warning for “The Smartest People in the Room”…

God will not be mocked.

Until He Comes,
