    The corrosive Culture of Hate: Don’t let the publicity whores and exploiters of tragedy take away our turning to prayer We live in dangerous times, times made all the more dangerous by politicians and members of the entertainment industry who exploit them for that self aggrandizement called PUBLICITY. It is high time for the media, both mainstream and social, to cut society a break by following rule-of-thumb order that keeps back all seasoned exploiters of tragedy, allowing authorities and first responders the time to carefully assess when, how and why each and every tragedy happens.
  • Bono Won’t Work With Trump: ‘You Can’t Believe’ What He Says

    Hollywood and the media are willing to swallow any and all negativity geared towards President Trump and his administration. U2’s lead singer Bono decided to gripe about Trump in his latest interview with Rolling Stone. His complaint? The president and the vice-president did nothing to stop cuts to PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). But Bono went a step further, saying: “I realized I couldn’t work with this president whether he wanted to or not, because you can’t believe what he says.” Even though the proposed cuts to PEPFAR were never made, Bono, a self-described activist, didn’t thank either...

    If there was a fancy Malibu rehab center for Trump Derangement Syndrome it would be jam packed with celebrities right now. Ten months into Trump’s first term Hollywood actors, directors, comedians and singers are STILL having trouble coping with life under President Trump. Comedian Rosie O’Donnell confessed her sick obsession: “I spend like pretty much 90 percent of my waking hours tweeting hatred” towards Trump. And for some celebs Trump became a literal nightmare they can’t wake up from. Actor Rob Reiner whined: “I’m in a nightmare that doesn’t ever stop,” and hippie-singer David Crosby wailed about the “orange nightmare...
  • The Unbelievable Stupidity of Those Who Believe that Laws Stop the Lawless

    Lady Gaga is the latest celebrity weighing in on the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre by blaming lawmakers (aka Republicans) for not passing more gun control. Yoo-hoo Lady G, no law would have prevented the slaughter because the alleged suspect passed all federal laws purchasing his legal guns. Here’s a tip which I give freely (as someone who loathes guns and is not a member of the NRA): if you hear anyone urging Congress to pass more gun controls immediately, consider that person mentally deficient. That advice will be coming from celebrities, the media and politicians who probably all...

    There is a neverending squeal from the mad dog, leftist, marxist, Islamist media. And from knee-bending “entertainers,” and relentlessly puerile politicians, and the mad-cap One World Elite. How do you stop it? How do you turn it off? Where do you go for relief? It seems to me that it is They who have pulled the stops out and declared blood war on all the rest of us. It is they that do or threaten the electronic or real beheadings, murder, crime, subversion, and other violence. How do you stop them? How do you shut them up when they have...

    Stephen Colbert was angrier than usual with the Senate after they failed to pass any of the proposed gun control bills this week. The Late Show host had a hard time believing that they couldn’t come together on something that so many Americans agree on, saying, “Ninety-two percent of Americans want to expand background checks for gun buyers, and you just ignore them. Since when does 8 percent of the population get to have total control of an issue?”

    Between adding to her ever-growing celeb squad and feigning shock at winning yet another award, Taylor Swift is continuing her quest for world domination by claiming the title of top earning musician in 2015. The pop princess topped Billboard‘s Top Money-Makers list for 2015, beating out heavy hitters like Adele and One Direction with a total revenue of $73.5 million. The majority of her earnings for the year came from her wildly successful 1989 World Tour, clocking in at $61.7 million.

    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band canceled their North Carolina concert because of the state's new law blocking anti-discrimination rules for the LGBT community, said guitarist Steven Van Zandt, calling it the kind of legislation that's like an "evil virus" spreading around the U.S. Van Zandt told The Associated Press they decided not to perform Sunday in Greensboro because of the law, which requires transgender people to use bathrooms based on their biological sex and bans state lawsuits for any type of workplace discrimination.

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said Sunday he thinks he can persuade supporters of Republican front-runner Donald Trump to back him in the 2016 race. Mr. Sanders, an Independent senator from Vermont, said on CBS that his message about economic inequality can appeal to Trump backers who are angry about lower wages and job losses. "Many of Trump's supporters are working class people and they are angry," Mr. Sanders said. "What Trump has done successfully, I would say, is take that anger, take that anxiety about terrorism and say to a lot of people in this country, look, the reason...

    Want to tell people that they are hurting children around the globe? Use a pop star and a fake newscast to soften up the guilt trip. In a video reminiscent of a bad episode of “Who Wore it Better,” pop superstar Katy Perry channeled her inner Anchorman in a burgundy pantsuit while she “forecasted” the climate threat in a video for UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund.) UNICEF, a humanitarian program of the UN that provides assistance to mothers and children in developing countries, advocates for a strong legally binding global agreement to be the result of the Paris conference.

    This page is dedicated to all of the Hollywood and other entertainers that supported Barack Obama in 2008 and their cult-like zombie fans that followed them like lemmings in voting for the Messiah. They often hold occult, religious beliefs, similar to Obama, that see the current/traditional American system as being evil, a system that must be overturned, in order to bring on a utopian, socialist system. This is part of the teachings of Black Liberation Theology, the seditious and racist doctrine of Obama’s pseudo-Church in Chicago, Trinity United Church of Christ.
