Now, I realize that I’m just an old cranky cracka’ living in Dixie, but, I repeat, you gotta be kiddin’ me!

What does she even know about politics…except where to find the television cameras at a political event?

Here is a short, unauthorized biography, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org

 

Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to an unmarried teenage mother on January 29, 1954, and was raised by her maternal grandmother on a Mississippi farm until the age of 6. She was then sent to live with her mother in Milwaukee, where, from ages 9 to 13, she was repeatedly molested by male relatives and another visitor. At age 14 she gave birth to a premature baby who died shortly thereafter. Winfrey then moved to Nashville, Tennessee to live with her father and his wife. The couple provided the girl with discipline and stability, and Winfrey became an honors student in high school.

At age 17, Winfrey won the Miss Black Tennessee beauty pageant and was hired for an on-air job at WVOL Radio in Nashville. She also won a full scholarship to Tennessee State University, where she majored in speech communications and performing arts. After graduating, Winfrey took a job as a news anchor at Nashville’s WLAC-TV. In 1976 she became a news co-anchor at Baltimore’s WJZ-TV, where she also co-hosted her first talk show. And in January 1984, Winfrey moved to Illinois to host A.M. Chicago for WLS-TV. Less than a year later, the program was renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show. It entered national syndication in 1986 and became the highest-rated talk show in television history. Also in 1986, Winfrey established Harpo Studios, a production facility in Chicago.

…Winfrey made headlines in September 2006 when she told interviewer Larry King that she hoped Barack Obama, her favorite U.S. senator, would run for president. The following month, she interviewed Obama and his wife (Michelle) and promoted the senator’s book, The Audacity of Hope, propelling it instantly to bestseller status.

In the Fall of 2007, Winfrey held a fundraiser for Obama’s presidential campaign at her California home and raised several million dollars.[1] When Obama secured the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in June 2008, Winfrey said: “I’m euphoric … And if he wants me to [campaign for him], I’m ready to go door-to-door.”

In August 2008, Winfrey attended the Democratic National Convention and likened the experience of hearing Obama speak to what it might have been like “to sit and listen to Lincoln speak or Roosevelt speak or … to understand what Martin Luther King was saying 45 years ago.”[2]

In October 2008 Winfrey hosted a second fundraiser for Obama, this time in Chicago.

Winfrey has stated that “everybody should see” former Vice President Al Gore’s 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth, which asserts that the greenhouse gases produced by fossil-fuel combustion are major causes of potentially catastrophic global warming. According to Winfrey’s Oprah.com website, Gore’s film delivers “the sobering news about a threat to our civilization’s future.” Winfrey herself owns a gas-guzzling, $42 million private jet, of which she once said: “Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.”

On the subject of immigration reform, Winfrey has called for “a clear path-to-citizenship for the 12 million undocumented immigrants who reside in this country.” She has also voiced her belief that government has a duty to give low-income people “access to healthy food and a roof over the heads and a strong public education.”

In August 2013, soon after a “white Hispanic” neighborhood-watch captain named George Zimmerman had been acquitted of manslaughter charges connected to a high-profile 2012 altercation in which he had shot and killed a black teenager named Trayvon Martin, Winfrey said: “To me, it’s ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved.” She also stated: “Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you: In my mind, same thing.” Till, whose death helped galvanize the early civil-rights movement, was a 14-year-old black teen who in 1955 was kidnapped by two white men in Mississippi who beat him, gouged out one of his eyes, shot him in the head, and dumped his body into the Tallahatchie River.

There’s more, but for the sake of brevity…and our mutual sanity, I’ll leave it up to your judgment whether you wish to read any additional information about her or not.

As you may or may not remember, Oprah was very active during Barack Hussein Obama’s ascension to the Presidency of the United States, remaining a close friend and a trusted advisor to him and Mooch…err…Michelle throughout both terms.

The circle that she has traveled in and the causes which she has championed have made her a darling of the Liberal Elite on both the East and Left Coasts.

The hoi polloi fawn over her as if she is royalty, so, it really should not surprise any of us that NBC/Comcast floated this trial balloon on Twitter, echoing a consistent fervently whispered hope which has been communicated among those same “special” travelers.

How lucky we are, as mere 9 to 5 peons to have our next president selected for us by those who view themselves as our intellectual superiors.

Why, it just takes one’s breath away, doesn’t it?

And makes you want to blow chunks.

Now, I have written numerous articles regarding the self-righteousness of the Hollywood and New York Showbiz Elite. to paraphrase the great Val Kilmer (who is battling throat cancer, God bless him) as Doc Holliday in “Tombstone”,

Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Have the dancing monkeys in Tinseltown and the Big Apple not figured out that the America People revolted against their political philosophy and their opinions as to how we should live our lives on November 8, 2016?

Have they not gotten a clue, yet?

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 the “stars” of the past, who volunteered for service in World War II , entertained troops with the U.S.O, or staged NON-POLITICAL Fundraisers after natural disasters.

These self-proclaimed “activist” actors, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

And now, they want us to vote in one of their number as the next President of the United States of America.

Will she give us all new cars like she did her audience?

Just kidding.

I would rather walk.

Until He Comes,

Dear Hollywood: Shut Up and Act!

TheHill.com reports that

Celebrities, activists and others gave an emotional goodbye to President Obama in a new video by the White House titled “Yes We Can: Your Most Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency.”

The video features figures including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen DeGeneres, all sharing some of their favorite moments with the president.

“I never cried before, from an election result,” singer John Legend says in the video.

“When I was at the U.N. and I heard our president say that climate change is the most important issue facing, not only this generation but also future generations, it was inspiring,” DiCaprio said.

“The CVS experience with Michelle (Obama) was pretty cool and dancing with Barack at his birthday party. And he’s a good dancer. He should not get any flack for that — you’re a good dancer,” DeGeneres said.

Aside from celebrities, the video also included children’s reactions to Obama’s presidency as well as moments they enjoyed.

The video comes as the Obamas wrap up their time in the White House. On Friday night, the first family held their last party at the White House and earlier in the day, Michelle Obama Michelle ObamaCelebrities give Obama emotional farewell in videoObamas host final star-studded White House bashEx-DNC head floats ‘Michelle in 2020’MORE gave her final speech as first lady.

Wait, boys and girls…the worship service at the Church of Hollywood is just getting started. It is time now for the sermon…

Breitbart.com reports that

Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at Sunday night’s Golden Globes — and used her acceptance speech to repeatedly attack President-elect Donald Trump in what was one of the night’s most pointed political statements.
The three-time Oscar-winner began her speech by noting that Hollywood is the most “vilified” segment of American society following Donald Trump’s victory.

“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,” she said.

Streep said Trump’s mocking of disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski was the “performance” that most “stunned” her.

“There was nothing good about it, but it did its job,” the actress said. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie, it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same.” 

“Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence,” Streep said.

Streep challenged a “principled press” to stand up to Trump; “to hold power to hold power to account, to call to the carpet for every outrage.

Streep called on Hollywood to support the Committee to Protect Journalists, “because we’re going to need them going forward — and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”

“Take your broken heart, make it into art,” Streep concluded, quoting the late actress Carrie Fisher.

Those “celebrities” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue to throw the longest temper tantrum over the results of one of the biggest upsets in an American Presidential Election that the world has ever seen.

These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying 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”.

This meltdown which promises to last way past Inauguration Day, 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 the Legendary American Actor, John Wayne, who once said,

…I always thought I was a liberal but I came up terribly surprised when I found I was a right wing conservative extremist…I have always listened to every human being I’ve ever met about how I should feel.  But this so-called new liberal group… they never listen to your point of view and they make a decision as to what you think and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person.  For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me…it hasn’t affected my career in popularity in spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make them do it.  There isn’t a hell of a lot we can do to change human behavior.  We keep making laws to try to change human behavior but we can’t do it…You’re being conned into Keynesianism and socialism now but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior.  It isn’t going to stop the greed.  If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a b!tch in the room, you come back a year later one of the b@st@rds will have most of the money.  It’s just human nature.  We’re never gonna whip it with a lot of laws. 

As communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help…I think there are people who try to affect a thinking where they know more than some other son of a b!tch and try to pull a false impression on what human nature is.  We’ve proven we go back to hope at the first opportunity…and bam they’re out there ready to grab it.  So we are optimistic; we have to be optimistic.  What else would we be if you lose optimism?”

Well, Duke…I guess when you lose optimism, you sound like a bunch of spoiled brats.

Like you so eloquently said,

Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid. 

Today’s “Stars” should have listened to you.

Until He Comes,
