It’s Oscar Night!

This used to be a big deal. I remember my grandmother watching to see all the gowns the Hollywood elite wore (and often make snide comments about them looking like “a saddle on a sow”…extra grannyism there), or some such offhand snarkiness. Personally, I quit going to movies about the time the outdoor theaters disappeared.
Since the rise of the internet, which gave educated people the ability to express conservative ideas heretofore censored, the discourse has coarsened to the point where so-called “beautiful people” have taken upon themselves to become the arbiters of our morality. The Academy Awards have degenerated into an orgy of self-congratulatory egoists slapping each other on the back, thanking all the ‘little people’ and copping clandestine feels before the “#me too” nonsense was brought belatedly to light.
You know well beforehand that these clowns who make millions playing pretend cannot resist berating this president and all the things most of us hold dear, like the Constitution. I never watch this republican bash-a-thon and doubt any of the few who come by here do either.

Oscar weekend kicks off without celebratory spirit
“Can you believe the Oscars is this Sunday?” a top agent told Steigrad. “It’s like, who cares?”
While there’s always a sense of awards season fatigue following the Golden Globes, this year has a slate of smaller, less flashy movies nominated, with no big stars expected to take home the golden statuette.
“There are no movie stars [expected to win] this year,” the agent added.

Yeah, Here’s Another Reason Why Conservatives Should Just Should Turn Off The Oscars Tonight
Yet, in the age of Trump, you can expect the bashing of our president to occur tonight. You can also expect swipes at those who are not in this club—Republicans, rural voters, people from small towns—to be ridiculed. Oh, and I forgot, there’s going to be pro-gun control pins that celebrities are expected to wear, according to reports. Nothing is confirmed, but this wouldn’t shock me.

Stars to Wear Anti-Gun-Violence Pin at Oscars, Sources Say
Michael Bloomberg’s New York-based gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety has created an anti-gun-violence pin for celebrities to wear to the Oscars on Sunday, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
Since the Parkland, Florida, high school massacre that left 17 dead last month, thousands of young people have called upon the organization to support their efforts to advocate for more stringent gun-control laws and other public-safety issues.

Can Time’s Up Avoid Protest Fatigue at the Oscars?
In several decades of researching social change, I have never seen a social movement arise as quickly and spread as widely as the #MeToo campaign against sexual assault and harassment. But like all contemporary protests, supporters face the difficulty of sustaining momentum in the face of a public whose attention span seldom lasts beyond a single news cycle.
In approaching the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, activists face a problem scholars call “protest fatigue.” People tend to grow weary of repeated protests unless there is something novel about them. Movements that were once energetic and fresh find themselves under a great deal of pressure to top their previous efforts.

Jimmy Kimmel Says ‘It’s Almost Necessary Now’ to Trash Trump: ‘I Don’t Think You Can Go too Far’
“I don’t think you can go too far,” Kimmel says of his politically charged rhetoric. “I’m still doing a comedy show and I need to be funny and entertain my audience, but I also think that we’ve matured enough … to the point where we can accept late-night talk show hosts speaking about a serious subject. And I think that it’s almost necessary now.”

The Way It Is

In keeping with my policy, I’m not posting any links to the investigations going on in Congress because there’s really no point. We’ve found what we all knew to be true, that Obama didn’t have a presidential administration, but a criminal enterprise. Using phony information to spy on Trump people, collusion between the White House, FBI, and DOJ to make sure Hillary would never be charged with anything; Lynch announcing she’d abide by whatever decision Comey came to when she was told months earlier what the outcome of the sham investigation would be. Felonies piled on felonies. It’s laughable to think that any investigation will result in any indictments. Even if they were, you’d never get a judge or jury in DC to convict a Democrat. So it’s all bullcrap. Enough said.

DC ‘Made Men’ Like James Clapper Don’t Get Charged For Committing Open Perjury

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about to celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life. March 13th will be the fifth anniversary of his commission of open perjury before the Senate Intelligence Committee. More importantly, it also happens to be when the statute of limitations runs out — closing any possibility of prosecution for Clapper

Black racists enraged by Malia Obama’s white boyfriend

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has a boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia’s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white.

[CtH: Remember all the ooey-gooey crap her daddy spewed about his white mama and black daddy ending racism?]

Schumer’s shutdown reveals: Democrats will destroy America just to spite Trump
The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty.

When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process.

We already knew the Washington Democrats hated Trump. Now we know they oppose not just the president, but American government, the American people and even the very concept of American citizenship as well.

They call Americans “deplorables” and illegal immigrants “Dreamers.” That tells you everything you need to know about the Democrats’ upside-down world view.

SAG Awards Host Can’t Resist Taking A Shot At Melania Minutes Into The Show

“There has never been a host for this awards show,” Bell said. “First time. First person. First lady. I honestly never thought I would grow up to be the first lady, but you know what, I kind of like it.”

“I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” Bell joked early in her speech.

Trump Rejects NBC’s Request for Pre-Super Bowl Interview


The White House has at present, according to a person familiar with the matter, indicated to NBC News that President Donald Trump will not take part in a recent Super Bowl ritual: a pre-game interview between the commander-in-chief and the news unit of the network hosting the game.

If Trump had agreed to the interview, he probably would have been grilled about his opposition to NFL players protesting when the National Anthem is played before games, as well as about his political policies, Variety says.

When MRC analyzed all evening news coverage of the President in 2017, we found that 87.8 percent of Trump’s coverage on the NBC Nightly News was negative, compared to a mere 12.2 percent that was positive.

Sec. Zinke Will Spend The Government Shutdown Ensuring The WWII Memorial, National Parks, Stay Open

No Barrycades this time. Just one more demonstration of how Obama had no problem hurting people for his political agenda.

In the first hours of the government shutdown, Secretary Zinke was making plans for how to keep America’s public parks open. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Zinke met with public affairs and maintenance staff to run through a plan to keep memorials on the National Mall open. He then spoke with garbagemen who will be picking up trash on the Mall one last time before the city of D.C. takes over for them.

Zinke then got into his car and drove to the WWII memorial to greet visitors and hand out maps and helped with directions. “I spent the morning walking around, giving brochures out,” Zinke said. “I got a lot of thanks from both sides of the aisle. We will not weaponize our public lands.”

Trump Campaign Slams Democrats As ‘Complicit’ In Murders By Illegal Aliens In Explosive New Ad

President Trump’s re-election campaign released a new ad on Saturday slamming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats as “complicit” in future murders committed by illegal immigrants.

The ad featured Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant on trial for killing two police officers who told a judge he only wished he “had killed more of the mother******s.”

Sarah Sanders Tweets Picture From Young Infantryman in Afghanistan Showing What Servicemen Woke Up to Thanks to Democrats #SchumerShutdown

On Saturday, Sarah Sanders tweeted out a photo sent to her from an infantryman serving in Afghanistan. Thank you, Chuck Schumer and Democrats! This is all on you!
American Forces Network provides entertainment and other services to our service members overseas. Due to Schumer’s shutdown, our men and women overseas currently do not have access to this network.

Dem street fighting meets match in Trump

For years, Democrats have successfully used government shutdowns to slap wimpy Republicans around and paint them as cold, ineffectual cream puffs who don’t care about the regular people who depend on a functioning government.

Remember the political theater of the 2013 government shutdown, when veterans and little kids were barricaded out of the national monuments and Nancy Pelosi was calling the Republicans legislative arsonists?

That’s not going to work with the bad hombre in the White House — he was born to brawl.

Democrats did their best to fill the news cycle with distracting toxicity leading up to the shutdown we’re in, but it didn’t take. People see it for what it is. Disgraceful political opportunism. Democratic senators don’t oppose much of the spending bill at all, and they pretended there was moral urgency with DACA.

[CtH: Among the MOST pathetic examples was CNN warning us that we could be hit by an UNDETECTED asteroid!  Cuz, you know, if it was detected, we’d be able to do something about it.  Oh wait.   No we couldn’t.  It would still hit us.  We’d just know about it a little sooner.]

Weaponizing the Shutdown 

If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home.

CNN Reporter: People ‘Don’t Care’ About Russia Investigation Even Though ‘That’s All We Talk About at CNN’

Trump Calls for ‘Nuclear Option’ if Democrats Continue Shutdown

By invoking the “nuclear option,” Senate Republicans would change the rules of the Senate so that it would only take a 51-vote majority to pass a bill and it would no longer be required to get 60 votes to end debate on it.

“The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump said in the tweet. “If the stalemate continues, Republicans should to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s”

Making California Mexico Again

“No barriers between California and Mexico” for leftist Democrats.

In this view, Mexicans who violate U.S. immigration law are only entering their own country and not illegal in any sense. They are therefore entitled to education, medical care, drivers’ licenses, welfare, and in-state college tuition. False-documented illegals also vote in federal, state and local elections, the imported electorate of California’s ruling class Democrats. California secretary of state Alex Padilla conveniently refuses to reveal voter information and will not cooperate with federal probes of voter fraud.

[CtH: Funny thing how it doesn’t work the other way.  Americans who enter Mexico illegally go to jail.]

Trump HHS Announces “New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division”
HHS moves from “pro-life antagonist to advocate.”

During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump repeatedly spoke of his intent to support life should he be elected. This week he took another huge step in fulfilling this promise with his HHS’s announcement of a new conscience and religious freedom division.

Additionally, the HHS has announced that it will roll back another Obama era policy: HHS will no longer freeze out states that seek to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. Last year, the president signed a bill allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood.

Former Military Lawyers: Chelsea Manning Subject To Prosecution For Running For Office

While Manning’s felony conviction does not appear to automatically disqualify a run for office, his active-duty status presents a much more troubling issue. Such a status, in other words, has enormous implications for engaging in any kind of political activity, especially a Senate run.

That paragraph is punitive and violation of it subjects her to courts-martial for violation of a lawful order or regulation under Article 92,” Brenner-Beck told TheDCNF. “Her activities campaigning for herself and fundraising for herself may also violate other provisions of the DoD Directive, themselves separately punishable under the UCMJ, art. 92.”

Pelosi Invited Dems To Celebratory Meal, While Military Doesn’t Get Paid And Can’t Eat $58 Steaks

On SNL, it dawns on the left that its tantrum over Trump is falling flat

I watched the opening segment last night, which was a mirthless five-minute take attempting to convince us President Trump was dumb. Later on in the program, at the half-hour mark, the second political skit, led by actress and guest host Jessica Chastain was more interesting.

Using the format of a cheesy game show with a panel of three contestants, Chastain asked her contenders in the five-minute segment whether this or that action of President Trump’s “matters anymore.”

The skit moves on to ever more outrageous scenarios, none of which “matter anymore” to highlight that the public doesn’t give a darn about the media’s frenzy at President Trump’s tweets or its slambook-style leaks of his offhand supposed remarks. In the course of the drama, Chastain gets more and more wound up at how Trump gets away with whatever it is the left says he gets away with and near the end of the skit swigs a booze bottle to drown her exasperated sorrows as the contestants try to comfort her.

Hollywood’s Moral Authority

2018_01 11 Bugs toon by Catholic Vote

A couple of days ago, there was a brouhaha about “gender pay inequality” in Hollywood.

It seems that Ridley Scott’s, All the Money in the World, had to be hastily reshot after disgraced Kevin Spacey was replaced in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty.

Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes, while Michelle Williams was paid less than $1,000 for reshooting her scenes.  Oh noes!

Except, whoops. It turns out the “gender” pay gap was actually a “better contract for a bigger star” pay gap.  Wahl’s contract got him big bucks for reshoots. William’s contract only got her the standard $80 per diem.

Orca for President!

Her picture was on the front page of both Chicago newspapers this morning. The Golden Globe circle jerk ceremony was held last night, where all the Hollywood types congratulate each other for being too fabulous. The theme last night was women standing up to whine about the harassment that has been going on in the industry for probably near a decade. Phony people living phony lives.

Oprah threw away half her audience in 2008 when she went all in for the Magic Negro and told her conservative audience to piss off. Never liked her before, like her even less now. NBC is touting her for president in 2020, just as the democrats once anointed a Chicago street hustler on the strength of a speech he read at the Dem convention in 2004. All it takes is some words somebody smart wrote to be deemed a genius to liberal sheep.

[CtH: KDJ has experienced her up close and in person, says she’s a nasty, entitled, rich bitch who is possibly the most racist person he’s ever met.]

Oprah Winfrey calls out sexual harassers in powerful Globes speech: ‘Their time is up’

Oprah Winfrey brought the Golden Globes crowd to its feet with a powerful speech during Sunday’s ceremony, calling out sexual harassers around the world: “Their time has come.”

Making a plea for a free press, Winfrey said, “I want to say I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times. Which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”
Winfrey then pivoted her speech by telling the story of Recy Taylor, who was raped by a group of white men in Alabama in 1944.

“Recy Taylor died 10 days ago. She lived too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. Women were not believed,” Winfrey said, before adding to the abusive men, “their time is up.”


OPRAH 2020! NBC, Liberal Media, Promote Oprah Winfrey for President Over Golden Globes Speech (Update: Stedman says ‘Absolutely’ open to running)

[CtH:  Good grief! An uber rich talk show host is now president material? Remember when they jeered at Trump because he was an uber rich reality show star? Remember when they said we should vote for Hillary because, having been FLOTUS, Senator, and SecState, she was the “most qualified candidate ever”?  We live in truly bizarre times.]

NBC News and others in the media are promoting Oprah Winfrey for president over her appearance and speech at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards broadcast where she received the Cecil B. DeMille award
Oprah Winfrey speaks at the 50th anniversary commemoration of the March on Washington, August 28, 2013 at the Lincoln Memorial attended by President Barack Obama.

NBC, which broadcast the Golden Globes, posted a tweet saying, “Nothing but respect for OUR future president. #GoldenGlobes” over a GIF of a smiling Winfrey.
W Magazine: “Oprah for President.”

Celebrities Call for Oprah Winfrey to Run for President Following Golden Globes Speech

“And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me Too’ again,” she declared.


Oprah’s speech prompted applause, cheers, and a standing ovation from those inside The Beverly Hilton hotel and ignited calls for her presidential candidacy from her adoring celebrity peers on social media.

[CtH: Let’s not forget that Meryl Streep gave a CONVICTED RAPIST a standing ovation too.]

Left-wing comedian Sarah Silverman tweeted “Oprah/Michelle 2020,” apparently promoting a presidential ticket in 2020 in which former first lady Michelle Obama is Oprah running mate.


Less Than 5 Minutes Into Golden Globes, Seth Meyers Couldn’t Resist Making A Lame Trump Joke

NBC late night comedian and host of the 2018 Golden Globes Seth Meyers couldn’t get through five minutes of his opening monologue without making a joke about President Donald Trump, and it fell flat.

Meyers said a woman might have been better suited to host the awards show given the news of recent sexual harassment scandals, but he assured the audience he was the right choice because he was a man “with absolutely no power in Hollywood. I’m not even the most powerful Seth in the room tonight,” Meyers said.

He then pointed to actor Seth Rogen who was in the crowd and said, “Hey remember when he [Rogen] was the guy making trouble with North Korea? Simpler times.”

Stars Black Out Golden Globes Red Carpet in Support of Time’s Up Movement

@EmmaWatson and Marai Larasi, director of the UK-based black feminist organization @Imkaan, on the “profound” #TimesUp movement #GoldenGlobes


The “Beauty and the Beast” star, who brought women’s activist Marai Larasi as her date to the ceremony, said the movement made her very emotional and added, “You realize if you speak to most women, they have an experience, they have a story, and we’re just scratching the surface of this which is really crazy.”

“Glow” star and Golden Globe nominee Alison Brie said she chose to wear black “to stand in solidarity with all the women who have come out about being sexually harassed and abused. I’m so in awe of the bravery it took for the first few to come forward. They are heroes.”

[CtH: It WAS brave back before it became a form of virtue signaling. I reported my perp to the appropriate authorities and he was dealt with privately and to my satisfaction. But I remember learning what “my blood ran cold” actually meant one night when, while washing dishes, I thought, “What would happen to my girls if this gets out?” The man in question was a well loved community leader. My BEST FRIEND picked him over me after I told her what he’d done.]

Meryl Streep says she will wear a black dress to the Golden Globes award show as a “silent protest” of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

Bless your heart, Meryl, but y’all should’ve done more NOT silent protesting back in the days when it wasn’t so all-fired POPULAR to protest sexual misconduct.

2003 Streep stands for Polanski

In March 1977, film director Roman Polanski, 44, was arrested and charged in Los Angeles with five offenses against Samantha Gailey, 13, including perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, furnishing a controlled substance to a minor, and rape by use of drugs.

At his arraignment, Polanski pleaded not guilty to all charges, but later accepted a plea bargain whose terms included dismissal of the five initial charges in exchange for a guilty plea to the lesser charge of engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse.

Upon learning that he was likely to face imprisonment, Polanski fled the country and has avoided visiting countries likely to extradite him to the United States.

Real men

Andrew Klavan speaks sense: “Hollywood’s Masculinity Deficit.”

Powerful men and masculine men are not the same thing. Former Fox News host Laura Sivan recently told in heart-wrenching detail how Weinstein cornered her in a basement and masturbated in front of her. Is that how manly men behave in your book? Pick your masculine icon. John Wayne’s characters? Clint Eastwood’s? Watch me take a shower. Give me a massage and I’ll put you in a movie. Is that how they behave?”

The Swamp In Hollywood

2017_10 22 LAT James Toback

During these meetings, many of the women said, Toback boasted of sexual conquests with the famous and then asked humiliating personal questions. How often do you masturbate? How much pubic hair do you have? He’d tell them, they said, that he couldn’t properly function unless he “jerked off” several times a day. And then he’d dry-hump them or masturbate in front of them, ejaculating into his pants or onto their bodies and then walk away. Meeting over.

The women’s accounts portray James Toback as a man who, for decades, sexually harassed women he hired, women looking for work and women he just saw on the street. The vast majority of these women — 31 of the 38 interviewed — spoke on the record. The Times also interviewed people that the women informed of the incidents when they occurred.

Toback’s film credits include The Big Bang (1989 Writer/Director) which he says was inspired by his “epiphany” that the origin of the cosmos was an “orgasmic explosion of God.”
