A COMPREHENSIVE ACADEMY AWARD REVIEW

Just kidding. I never have,never will waste a minute of the precious little time I have left of my life watching a bunch of posers with overinflated egos and way too much time on their hands indulge themselves in an orgy of self-congratulations and espousing their favorite liberal propaganda for the entire world to be awed by their awesomely awesome awesomeness. I perused the interwebs for some stuff about the gala this past evening,and the UK Telegraph had an orgy of coverage. I’m trying to do this like CtH or Grunt would post this. No promises. Regular stuff in reply section.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: How pervasive are politics in Hollywood right where we can’t even watch the Oscars? Everybody has their freedom of speech but you would think there would be some who feel a different way now. Are there some being silenced?

Stacey Dash: Oh yeah, being silenced. And I think they are so chummy with this administration. They love it so much…

Valerie Jarrett Praises Oscar Winner Patricia Arquette For Equal Pay Speech

While Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez were leaping out of their seats to endorse Oscar Winner Patricia Arquette for using her acceptance speech to highlight the issue of equal pay for women, President Obama’s most trusted senior advisor endorsed the message as well.

“Congrats @PattyArquette!,” Valerie Jarrett tweeted shortly after the speech. “Thx for using your speech to advocate for #EqualPay and for understanding that when women succeed, America succeeds.”

5 moments when politics took center stage at the 2015 Oscars

1) Racial diversity

Politics took center stage right off the bat, when host Neil Patrick Harris referred to the #OscarsSoWhite debate.

“Tonight we honor Hollywood’s best and whitest — sorry, brightest,” he said, an ode to the controversial fact that the year’s acting nominees were all white

2) Gender pay gap

The comments were likely sparked by the email hack on Sony Pictures that revealed Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams made significantly less than their male co-stars.

3) Selma

Singer John Legend brought up voting rights, the incarceration rate of black men and Selma in his acceptance speech for his song “Glory” with Common from the movie “Selma.”

4) Snowden’s Oscar

“CITIZENFOUR,” which focuses on National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, won for best documentary feature. Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, joined director Laura Poitras, producer Dirk Wilutzky and journalist Glenn Greenwald onstage to accept the award.

“The subject of ‘Citizenfour,’ Edward Snowden, could not be here tonight for some treason,” Neil Patrick Harris said to laughs as the winners walked offstage.

5) Sean Penn’s Immigration Joke

And the award for most obscure shortlist goes to… Oscars accused of snubbing popular movies in favor of films that fit the tastes of Hollywood judges

Box office performance of best picture nominees was just $605million
Figure would have been lower without American Sniper, which took $312m
This year’s winner, Birdman, took a measly $36million at the box office

    Al Sharpton’s Show Allegedly Next On MSNBC Chopping Block, Goal To “Move Away From Left-Wing TV”

    OH,NOES! Whatever would we do without brother Al’s butchery of the English language to amuse us?
    Sharpton’s “PoliticsNation,” though popular with African Americans (accounting for 35 percent of the audience), has continued to underperform—as has the host, who is regularly mocked for his teleprompter gaffs and insincere posturing. Sharpton’s self-promotional version of civil rights activism, his deplorable tax record, and controversy-ridden past have frequently resulted in unflattering headlines during his stint at the network.

    John McCain: ‘I’m Ashamed Of My Country, I’m Ashamed Of My President, I’m Ashamed Of Myself’
    Senator,speaking for a large majority of patriots in this country,we are far more ashamed of you than you could possibly be about yourself.
    Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain said something on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday about the U.S.’s handling of the ongoing standoff between Russia and Ukraine that surprised host Bob Schieffer.

    “I’m ashamed of my country, I’m ashamed of my president and I’m ashamed of myself that I haven’t done more to help these people,” McCain said. “It is really, really heartbreaking.”

    Democrats blame losses on lack of narrative, white votes

    Democrats, most recently President Obama, suggested that Americans side with liberals on most issues — they just say the party has done a bad job selling their ideas
    In order to win elections, the Democratic Party must reclaim voters that we’ve lost including white Southern voters, excite key constituencies such as African American women and Latinas, and mobilize the broadest coalition of voters possible to not only recapture state houses but also Congress,” the report said.
    Whites are the only group that can be mocked,ridiculed and assaulted without any consequence.Then they wonder why we want no part of them.

    8th Grade Social Studies Teacher Gives Assignment Where ‘Right Answer’ Is Republicans Are ‘Destroying Path To Citizenship’

    Wonder if this is the same Wisconsin teacher who offered her students extra credit for going to a walker protest rally?
    Teacher Gracie Davis gave her students a handout that included an editorial cartoon titled “The Pathway to Citizenship” from the Chattanooga Times Free Press showing two brick layers paving a walkway — one with dark skin wearing a Democrat donkey logo, the other man, white, wearing a Republican elephant logo. While the implied immigrant is securing his bricks to the ground, the white Republican is removing the bricks and tossing them over his shoulder.

    George Will: Clintons Have ‘Complete Inability to Be Embarrassed’

    “I don’t think they care.”

    ITA: they have no conscience, no morals and care nothing about anyone/thing but themselves. They only get along because they need each other to fool stupid people.

    It should be, the question is, will it be? The richer the Clintons get, the more they resemble the Snopess, the rather low-rent people from a Faulkner novel. But one of the great strengths of the Clintons all along, particularly exemplified by Bill and the unpleasantness with Ms. Lewinsky, was a complete inability to be embarrassed. And the operation of the Clinton Foundation with all this, as we say, the appearance of perhaps quid pro quo corruption, all of this demonstrates that strength. I don’t think they care.
    This subject was tackled on another Sunday news show. The New York Times’ Amy Chozick appeared on ABC’s This Week and said that Hillary is attempting to distance herself from these scandals, whether it’s the comments she made about being “dead broke” or her large salary from speeches.

    The Washington Post played ‘gotcha’ with Scott Walker (and lost)

    Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion.

    “I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added. “You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?”

    What followed was completely lost on the WaPo Inquisition:

    Walker said such questions from reporters are reflective of a broader problem in the nation’s political-media culture, which he described as fixated on issues that are not relevant to most Americans.
    And so WaPo attempted to play guilt by association (emphasis mine):

    Walker’s comments Saturday came after a week in which he was asked repeatedly whether he agreed or disagreed with former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani when he said at a private dinner last Wednesday that he was not sure whether Obama loves his country. Walker was a guest at the dinner.

    Walker again declined Saturday to weigh in on Giuliani’s characterization of the president’s patriotism and background.

    “I don’t know, I honestly don’t know, one way or the other,” Walker said.“I’ve said that 100 times, too.”

    Liberals, Stop Lying About Everything

    Do our over-credentialed, under-educated, would-be betters actually believe the bullstuff they are shoveling, or do they really think that we normal Americans are so stupid that they can lie to our faces and we will just take it?

    I’m guessing Door Number Two. Liberals know they are full of it; they just think the rest of us are as foolish as the welfare-guzzling mouth-breathers who vote for them.

    It’s time for the lies to stop.

    Chickens Come Home to Roost… Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter Is Sent to Prison

    I SEE A PRESIDENTIAL PARDON IN HER FUTURE
    In September 2013, Jeri Wright, daughter of Reverend “God Damn America” Wright, and 12 other Democrats were charged with embezzling $16 million in Federal health grants that should have gone to AIDS charities and other programs for the poor and needy.

    More than one of the defendants had direct ties to President Barack Obama.
    In March 2014 Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s daughter Jeri was found guilty on eleven counts that included money laundering and lying to federal agents.

    This week US District Judge Sue E. Myerscough sent Jeri Wright to prison.
    The Chicago Sun-Times reported:

    Jeri L. Wright, the daughter of President Barack Obama’s former pastor, is headed to jail after a federal judge on Monday revoked a deal that allowed her to remain free as she awaits sentencing on a money-laundering conviction.

    U.S. District Judge Sue E. Myerscough ruled that there was probable cause to believe that Wright committed a theft while she was free on bail and ordered Wright detained by U.S. marshals in Springfield, according to Sharon Paul, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in the Central District of Illinois.

    Wright’s attorney, Victor P. Henderson, could not immediately be reached for comment.
