My boycott of network television has been ongoing for many years. It still is. But I took the news of the reboot of ‘Roseanne’ with interest. It was a complete smash with more than 18 million viewers and easily beat the Stormy Daniels porn-a-thon. It came as a shock to many Hollywood types, but then so did Hillary getting crushed by Donald Trump. Somewhere deep in the bowels of some studio in La La Land some big shots may yet get a clue that audiences are sick and tired of the constant conservative bashing in the media today.
Roseanne has been an outspoken supporter of the president, feelings that I doubt very much are shared by anybody else on the show. All I can think of is John Goodman, her TV husband, mocking Linda Tripp on SNL.
Roseanne Ratings Blowout! Premiere Is Top Comedy in 4 Years – Trumps Sunday’s Stormy interview in Adult Demo
The relaunch was the most watched comedy in 4 years and even beat the Stormy Daniels Sunday “60 Minutes” video in the adult demo.
Trump Calls Roseanne After Her ‘Pro-Trump’ Show’s ‘Huge’ Ratings
According to The New York Times, Trump called the 65-year-old star and former presidential candidate (remember this?) on Wednesday to thank her for breaking ranks with her Hollywood peers and openly supporting him, which she’s done personally and her character will now be doing weekly on her show. A man who fully understands the significance of ratings, Trump congratulated her for its 18.2 million viewers. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the call to the press Wednesday.
Movie theaters cash in as Hollywood turns to God
Religion is reclaiming cinema for sacred purposes at a rate never seen in history, with faith-based movies exploding from an obscure cottage industry last century into a multi-billion-dollar business.
“You can add faith-based movies to the list of genres that you can count on as box office, as much as you can count on any genre. But these movies have to come from an authentic place,” comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian told AFP.
“You can’t just suddenly have executives in board rooms saying, ‘Faith-based movies are big right now so let’s do one.’ You have to come from an authentic place. Those in the faith-based community will know if it’s not the real deal.”

Obama Loyalist Susan Rice Joins Netflix Board of Directors
THE OBAMAS ARE CURRENTLY IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH NETFLIX FOR THEIR OWN SERIES.
ANYTHING THEY GET INVOLVED WITH IS RIGGED.
Last year, Rice admitted to unmasking President Trump’s transition team after previously denying any involvement, prompting her to be interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee, while it was reported that Rice had ordered the surveillance of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Following the September 11, 2012, Benghazi terror attacks, Rice was also the “driving force behind a misinformation campaign.”
U.S. District Judge Nominated by Barack Obama Orders Florida Governor to Restore Voting Rights to Convicted Felons
Another day, another power grab from the bench.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Mark Walker ordered Florida Governor Rick Scott and the Cabinet to restore voting rights to felons.
GERRYMANDERING, FELONS VOTING, BALLOT BOX STUFFING… WIN NO MATTER WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO TO GET TRUMP
A spokesman for Scott issued a statement that defended the current system.
“Officials elected by Floridians, not judges, have the authority to determine Florida’s clemency process for convicted felons,” spokesman John Tupps said. “This is outlined in Florida’s Constitution and has been in place for more than a century and under multiple gubernatorial administrations.”
Study: Only 10% of D.C. ‘March for Our Lives’ Protesters Were Teenagers
Contrary to what’s been reported in many media accounts, the D.C. March for Our Lives crowd was not primarily made up of teenagers. Only about 10 percent of the participants were under 18. The average age of the adults in the crowd was just under 49 years old, which is older than participants at the other marches I’ve surveyed but similar to the age of the average participant at the Million Moms March in 2000, which was also about gun control.
Survey: 89% at March For Our Lives voted for Hillary, fewer than half were there because of gun control
In fact, not only were the marchers not young, they were unusually old with an average just short of 49, which Fisher claims is higher than the average at most rallies she’s measured. The marchers were also overwhelmingly female at 70 percent and well educated, with 72 percent having a B.A. It was, in other words, on average a march by middle-aged professional women. That’s an important voter bloc but not a mirror held up to the electorate’s face
Maxine Waters Implies Her Calls For Impeachment Are Irresponsible
PELOSI MUST HAVE TOLD HER TO SHUT THE HELL UP
MSNBC’s Ari Melber played a clip of Rep. Waters from 1998 claiming that Republicans were seeking to impeach then-president Bill Clinton over political disagreements.
“I am greatly disappointed in the raw, unmasked, unbridled hatred, and meanness that drives this impeachment coup d’etat,” Waters said at the time. “My Republican friends, what you do here today will long be remembered and recorded in history as one of the most despicable actions ever taken by the Congress of the United States of America.”
Judge cites LePage’s stay at Trump hotel in ruling that lawsuit against president can proceed
He also points to the governor’s subsequent visit with the president in finding that Maryland and the District of Columbia have standing to claim that Trump is violating the Constitution by mixing business interests with his work as president.
JUST A WILD GUESS…THEY’RE TRYING TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR IMPEACHMENT WHEN THEY TAKE BACK THE MAJORITY IN NOVEMBER
“Plaintiffs have sufficiently alleged that the President is violating the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution by reason of his involvement with and receipt of benefits from the Trump International Hotel and its appurtenances in Washington, D.C., as well as the operations of the Trump Organization with respect to the same,” Messitte wrote in his 47-page opinion. As supporting evidence, the judge singles out LePage’s visits to the hotel.
SCOTUS Considers Whether Maryland Dems Used Gerrymandering to Their Advantage
SCOTUS HAS NEVER OVERTURNED A GERRYMANDERING CASE.
THE DEMOCRATS INTEND TO LITERALLY STEAL THIS ELECTION.
If the trend continues, 2020 “could be a wave election for Democrats,” according to Michael Li, a redistricting expert at the Brennan Center in New York.
Gerrymandering has also been a hot topic in the state of Pennsylvania this year, where the redistricting maps again appear to favor Democrats. The state Supreme Court drew the new maps and, despite an emergency appeal from Republicans, who claimed the court overstepped its authority, the maps were upheld by the Supreme Court.
