The 2018 Academy Awards: Disconnected Liberals Honor Themselves

March 5, 2018

untitled (228)

The Academy Awards were the brainchild of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), formed in 1927. The AMPAS was created through collaborative effort of 36 most prominent individuals, who worked within the motion picture industry.

Film actor Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. was chosen as the first president of the Academy. The awards were established to honor the talented artists of the Motion Picture Industry. The first Academy Awards ceremony was held on May 16, 1929, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It was a very private affair, with only two hundred seventy people as guests. The awards were given in the banquet, set up at the hotel’s Blossom Room. The tickets for the guest tickets cost $5.

The first Oscar Ceremony consisted of the handing out of awards in 12 categories and two special honors.

The awards were meant to honor people responsible for cinematic achievements in 1927 and 1928. There was a very little element of surprise at the first Oscar Awards ceremony, as the names of the winners had been declared three months in advance. The entire affair was a lengthy one, filled with speeches. However, Douglas Fairbanks, the Academy President, moved things along as best he could, handing out the golden statues to the winners like a modern-day McDonalds Employee at the Drive-Thru Window.

Yes, boys and girls, once upon a time the Academy Awards celebrated individual achievement in the field of Professional Cinema.

That was then. This is now.

FoxNews,com reports that

The 90th annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday with returning host Jimmy Kimmel taking the stage encouraging positivity, before quickly taking jabs at President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and even Fox News viewers.

Despite calling for a show filled with positivity, both the host and stars like Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong’o made the movie-centric show political.

Kimmel began with an old-timey announcement in which he listed the stars in attendance, making his first political jab with “Black Panther” actress Lupita Nyong’o.

“The stunning Lupita Nyong’o, she was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya,” Kimmel said at the top of the show. “Let the tweetstorm from the president’s toilet begin!”

From there, the host launched into a positive monologue that poked fun at the whirlwind year in Hollywood, which saw the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements dominate the headlines and previous award shows. In commenting on the year’s diversity, he highlighted “Get Out” helmer Jordan Peele.

“Jordan is only the first person in 90 years to be nominated for directing, writing and best picture for his debut film,” he said. “What a debut it was. None other than President Trump called ‘Get Out’ the best first three-quarters of a movie this year.”

The final political jab came when discussing the gay romance film “Call Me By Your Name.” The host noted that the film, despite being an Oscar-nominated feature, did not score big at the box office.

“We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money,” he quipped. “We make them to upset Mike Pence.”

He lauded the actual Oscar statue, noting its age of 90 and taking a swipe at Fox News viewers in the process: “Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he’s probably at home tonight watching Fox News.”

He also said the Oscar, “Keeps his hands where you can see them, never says a rude word, and most importantly no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations.”

Yes, folks, those “jokes” were actually meant to be funny.

I wonder what the swashbuckling man’s man, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., would have thought about this bunch of no-talent crybabies who have politicized the award show that he worked so had to get off the ground?

He probably would have punched Kimmel right in the mouth.

Once again, the Hollywood “Elite” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue in public to show their hindquarters, while throwing the longest temper tantrum that the world has ever seen over the results of an American Presidential Election, that happened almost a year and a half ago.

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.

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”.

Over the last few several decades, Hollywood has vied for the title of “Sin City” with “Lost Wages (Las Vegas) through its glorification of the decadent and demonic. The family-friendly, morally based classic horror films such as “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, and “The Wolf Man”, have long since been replaced by Jason, Freddy, “Jigsaw”, and “Insidious”.

Meanwhile, love stories like “The Notebook” have been pushed aside for celebrations of pedophilia, like “Call Me By My Name”.

What is interesting to note, though, in the middle of the continuing Liberal Takeover and ongoing Political Meltdown in Hollyweird is the backlash by average Americans to the attempted shaping of our American Culture and Society. Please note the overwhelming popularity of Super Hero Movies, in which Good triumphs over Evil.

Just like the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Yes…I said it.

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.

And, perhaps, they would have had the intestinal fortitude to have shown Harvey Weinstein the door a long time ago.

Last night was nothing but an exercise in self-adulation by a bunch of self- absorbed, over-medicated, under-talented, bodyguard-using, gated community-living America-hating Liberals who want to tell us “commoners” that we should not listen to that still small voice in each of us and embrace decadence and turn in our Bibles and guns, while at the same time foreswearing any traditional American Ethics and Values which we still hold dear, in order to properly worship them and the Altar of Political Correctness which they have helped to create.

To which I and the overwhelming majority of average Americans living between the coasts reply in unison…

SHUT UP AND ACT!!!

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.

Until He Comes,

The Lion, the Switch, and the Unborn

July 30, 2015

thA2LI80LPThe 24-Hour News Cycle has gone off the rails, once again, purposefully diverting society’s attention.

The New York Times reports that

An American dentist who admitted that he killed a well-known lion this month in Zimbabwe and planned to mount the head kept his office closed on Wednesday as the furor about the hunt turned vitriolic and, at times, threatening.

Dr. Walter J. Palmer’s neatly groomed property near Minneapolis, adjacent to a preschool, has turned from a dentist’s office to a memorial to the lion, called Cecil, with red roses and more than a dozen stuffed animals laid outside the locked front door.

There was no answer to repeated knocks and doorbell rings at his large, stucco house in an affluent neighborhood. And his neighbors would not talk.

In an email distributed Tuesday night to his patients, Dr. Palmer said “media interest” had disrupted his practice and had caused people to overwhelm his staff with comments and phone calls. Patients seeking help were being referred to other offices for the time being.

In the hours after Dr. Palmer apologized for the shooting, saying he had killed the lion under the impression that the hunt was legal, he has gone from a dentist and longtime hunting enthusiast to the villain at the center of a virtual firestorm over the ethics of big-game trophy hunting.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, made an excellent point about this story on his program, yesterday.

I have a simple question.  I understand. I love Cecil the lion.  I understand it. I understand crying. I myself was ravaged with sadness when I heard about the death of Cecil the lion.  You know why?  Because, even when talking about a lion, it was in a game preserve. It wasn’t a pet, and you’re never gonna make a pet out of a predator beast. But it still is the essence of innocence, and it wouldn’t do anything to us if we didn’t threaten it first. It is just senseless for somebody to shoot it.  I don’t care whether he was a dentist from Minnesota or a terrorist from ISIS, it is senseless to be let onto a game preserve — “preserve,” protection — with a bow and arrow and think you are engaging in sport while you kill a lion.  It’s just senseless.  And I understand the sadness.

People have an attachment to animals that is inexplicable.  What I don’t understand… Now, Jimmy Kimmel broke down almost in tears last night on his program, and the very same people will express sadness, tears, shock, dismay over the death of Cecil.

I love cats, too, and I think Cecil is a great name for a lion.  In fact, if I ever get another cat I’m gonna name it Cecil in honor of this one.  My own cat was disappointed when she found out Cecil was killed.  All animals are worried about this.  Understand that.  But how in the world can you get teary-eyed and misty-eyed and sad over Cecil and, at the same time, participate in burying what’s happening at Planned Parenthood?  Can somebody explain that to me? (interruption) What do you mean, “Well”?

What do you mean, “Well”?  Is this too controversial a question?  What do you mean,  “Well”?  Is this somewhere I shouldn’t venture?  I do know how the animal people are.  But I know that most animal people have the same attitude toward human beings. Look, I understand the difference.  Human beings, adult human beings, are not the essence of innocence.  But babies in the womb are.  Babies in the womb are more innocent than any animal is.  But to a lot of people, that would be an argumentative statement.

I understand that, but a baby in the womb? I mean, you can’t get a more pure definition of innocence.  Now, I understand there’s a picture of Cecil the lion as he’s alive and sitting there with his harem and looking like a lion, looking like the king of the jungle. He’s sitting there and he’s just enjoying life, everything is fine and dandy, you see that picture and you hear the news that some reprobate with a bow and arrow was let in there for 50 grand, and to claim it was hunting?

There’s no hunting.

That wasn’t any sport in this.

Cecil had no idea.  It was at night.  Cecil had no idea.  He’s in a game preserve.  I understand all that.  And there aren’t any pictures of the baby chop shop operation.  I understand that.  And we are a photo- and image-driven society, but nevertheless, it’s a matter of I don’t know curiosity, concern, that so much emotion can be dredged up — and justifiably.  I mean, I’m with you on this death of Cecil business.  But I’m also just, if not more sickened by what Planned Parenthood’s doing.

I tell you, Planned Parenthood’s hired this PR firm called SKDKnickerbocker or some such thing and their job is single purpose, bury the story.  They are harassing Drive-By Media, to the extent that necessary to get them to ignore the story.  For example, Politico ran just a little bitty blurb about this and how it just makes a lot of people uncomfortable and this SKDKnickerbocker bunch just jumped on ’em, and Politico retracted or deleted it from their Web page or did something.

That’s what they’re trying to do is get this story buried.  They’re not even gonna try to argue the story.  They’re not even gonna try to say we all misunderstand it.  They’re not even gonna try to say, “There’s great medical research to be had here.”  They’re not gonna say, “It’s just a clump of cells.”  They’re not even gonna try to say, “It’s an unviable tissue.”  They’re just gonna lean on their buddies in the Drive-By to suppress the story.

There are a couple of Psychological Devices on display here.

1.  Deflection – The Main Stream Media, in all their underhanded glory, have purposefully pushed the story of Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion…oh, wait, that was the lion on “Daktari”, the 60s television show…I mean “Cecil”, the Lion King of Zimbabwe.

As Rush said, the story tugs on the heartstrings and makes you feel sorrow for ol’ Cecil.

The MSM was, no doubt, searching desperately for something…anything…to take the story about the Second Coming of the Third Reich, a.k.a., the selling of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood, off of the front page of newspapers and to bump it from the first story of the nightly news.

They found it.

And, it worked, at least for a moment, thanks to a second Psychological Device…

2.  Diversion (The “Squirrel!” Factor) – We live in a rapidly-changing world, full of momentary distractions. If you don’t maintain your focus on what is important, just like the dog in the movie, “Up!”, you will continuously be distracted by things of little or no consequence.

While the killing of Cecil the Lion was brutal in nature, it in no way whatsoever, overshadows the irrefutable fact that Planned Parenthood, an American Taxpayer-funded Organization, has been caught selling the body parts of aborted babies, like the ghouls in Victorian England once did, digging up cadavers and selling them to Medical Schools.

Actually, the parallels are quite remarkable between Victorian Society and Modern American Society.

Those living in Victorian England considered themselves to be “enlightened” and quite “civilized”.

So do Modern American Liberals.

During the Victorian Era, a certain class of intellectuals believed that Religious Faith “constricted” and “limited” science.

So do Modern American Liberals.

Ghouls…Planned Parenthood

Soulless Victorian “Men of Science”…Soulless Modern American Liberals

Enlightenment, indeed.
