‘Russians killed Epstein’: Go home everyone, Alec Baldwin is on the case

Screen Shot 2019-08-14 at 10.32.31 AM

Alec Baldwin, you are a talented and likeable actor, but why do so many of your political pronouncements sound like you are trying to sabotage your own side?

I mean why in the world would you just tweet, “The Russians killed Epstein. They’re in charge of everything now.”

If so, perhaps you would like to elaborate. You’ve definitely got our attention.

Or is this satire?

I won’t list your numerous comedy credits, you give a funny interview, and do a mean Trump impression.

Maybe, you are inhabiting the role of a paranoid Democratic conspiracy theorist who blames even the most random of unfortunate coincidences on the dark hand of the Kremlin.

If so, this is very convincing.

However, if you wrote this in earnest, and you think that you know this stuff just because you KNOW IT, then I am not just bemused. I am a little disheartened.

So Woke: Disney, Netflix Threaten Georgia Boycott But Continue Work in Countries Where Abortion Is Illegal

By Dr. Susan Berry

Film industry giants Disney and Netflix are threatening to boycott the state of Georgia over its new “heartbeat” abortion law, but have continued and even stepped up filming in countries in which abortion is entirely illegal or highly restricted.

Variety reported Monday Netflix intends to increase production in Egypt – where abortion is illegal – with Paranormal, directed by Amr Salama and based on the horror books by late Egyptian author Ahmed Khaled Tawfik.

“We are excited to continue our investment in Middle Eastern productions by adapting the highly acclaimed Paranormal novels into a thrilling new series,” said Kelly Luegenbiehl, Netflix vice president of international originals.

Variety reported Paranormal is the third Middle Eastern Netflix original series. It follows Jinn, a teen drama with supernatural themes that was filmed in Jordan, where abortion is illegal, except to save the life of the woman or if her health is threatened. Women as well as abortionists can be penalized for defying the law in Jordan.

Despite filming in these nations, however, on Tuesday Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, told Variety the company has “many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights … will be severely restricted” by the Georgia law that prohibits abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

Sarandos said Netflix would be working with the ACLU to fight the new law.

“Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there, while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to,” he added. “Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

While Disney Chairman Bob Iger commented that it would not be “practical” for his company to continue to shoot in Georgia, given its new abortion law, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Disney filmed part of its 2019 film Aladdin in Jordan as well.

The Free Beacon also noted that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise. In 2015, the company distributed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was filmed in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, where abortion is illegal except during the first 120 days of pregnancy and only when the mother’s life is threatened or the baby is diagnosed with a “lethal abnormality” that is “incompatible with life.”

Republican pollster Logan Dobson also observed on Twitter that Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmed scenes in Croatia, Ireland, and Bolivia – all nations in which abortion was highly restricted at the time of filming:

The Wall Street Journal editorial board noted the inconsistency in Disney’s policies, and specifically pointed out that the company also touts its theme park and films in China, where Turkic Muslims are being held in internment camps:

More than a few Americans may also notice the contradiction that Disney is more worried about filming in a U.S. state that has passed a law democratically than it is operating its theme park and hawking its films in China, which uses facial-recognition software to monitor its population and has a million Uighurs in re-education camps.

For decades, China also attempted to force control of its population with its “one-child policy,” which restricted the number of children a couple could have to only one.

Georgia’s Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act (HB 481) prohibits abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, usually at about six or seven weeks of pregnancy. Cases of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger are exceptions to the law.

Georgia is the third largest production hub in the country, due to its generous tax incentives.

Actress and political activist Alyssa Milano called for a Hollywood boycott of Georgia if Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill into law. Milano then followed with a call for a sex strike – urging women to engage in abstinence from sex – to protest the end to “reproductive rights.”

ACTOR JEFFREY WRIGHT: WHEN WE GET THE POWER, EVERYBODY ELSE F**KING DUCK

Actor Jeffrey Wright: When We Get the Power, Everybody Else F**king Duck

“There are no principles — not ethical, moral, legal, constitutional, religious, spiritual — NONE. There’s only power.”

Breitbart – MAY 30, 2019

Actor Jeffrey Wright on Wednesday appeared to warn that when the political left in America “get the power” back from Republicans, “everybody else” should “fucking duck.”

“Message from the @GOP:” Jeffrey Wright began, “There are no principles — not ethical, moral, legal, constitutional, religious, spiritual — NONE. There’s only power. And when we get the power, everybody else fucking duck.”

Screen Shot 2019-05-30 at 8.48.10 AM

“Lesson for everybody else: Get the power,” the Westworld star’s message concluded. It came as former Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered remarks at the Justice Department on Wednesday about the conclusion of his election interference investigation.

“If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Robert Mueller said, Wednesday echoing the conclusions made in his 800-plus page report.“Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider. It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge. So that was Justice Department policy. Those were the principles under which we operated.”

Netflix May Consider Boycotting Filming In Georgia; Conservatives May Consider Boycotting Netflix

HONG KONG - 2019/04/05: In this photo illustration a American global on-demand Internet streaming media provider Netflix logo is seen on an Android mobile device with a computer key which says cancel.

“Don’t alienate your pro-life customers. We have lots of streaming options these days.”

By Kassy Dillon

In response to Georgia’s new law prohibiting aborting babies with a detectable heartbeat, Netflix said that the company may “rethink” filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect. In response, some conservatives are saying they will consider boycotting Netflix if they follow through on the Georgia boycott.

In a statement to Variety, Netflix’s chief content creator Ted Sarandos said the company will work with the ACLU to fight the Georgia law in court.​

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Sarandos said. “It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court.”

He also said Netflix will continue to film in Georgia due to the law not being yet implemented but will still work with partners and artists who choose to boycott the state.

“Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia,” Sarandos added.

In response, conservatives are threatening to cancel their subscriptions to Netflix.

Fox News contributor Guy Benson parodied a headline about Netflix’s statement to say that he may boycott the company.

“Benson would rethink Netflix subscription if abortion advocacy stands,” Benson tweeted.

Kira Davis, the Editor-At-Large of RedState, said she is also considering ending her Netflix subscription.

“I enjoy @netflix but there’s literally nothing on there I can’t live without. I’m totally happy to ‘rethink’ my investment as well. It’s a two way street, friends!”

Fox News Contributor Lisa Booth also chimed in.

“Works both ways, @netflix. Will gladly cancel my account,” Booth tweeted.

The Daily Wire’s Elisha Krauss said she would use alternative streaming services.

“Fine, I’ll pay for the @Disney app and cancel @Netflix,” Krauss tweeted. “My kids don’t need their programming and I can do without Ozark.”

Fox News contributor and Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen warned the streaming service against alienating pro-life customers.

“Hey .@netflix nearly half the country is pro-life,” Thiessen tweeted. “Don’t alienate your pro-life customers. We have lots of streaming options these days.”

Several well-known producers and actors said they will avoid filming in Georgia due to the law, including actress Kristen Wiig who canceled her plans to film her upcoming comedy “Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar” in the state.​

In a tweet, producer Mark Duplass announced he would no longer film in Georgia and encouraged others to do the same.

“Don’t give your business to Georgia,” Duplass tweeted. “Will you pledge with me not to film anything in Georgia until they reverse this backwards legislation?”

Producers J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele decided to still film their show “Lovecraft Country” in the state but plan to donate their fees to the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia, reported Bloomberg.​

Georgia is a favorable state for filming due to its generous film and TV subsidies, which have led to the popular show “The Walking Dead” and the hit movie “Black Panther” being filmed there.

Earlier this month Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed the “heartbeat bill” into law which bans abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

“(The bill) is very simple but also very powerful: a declaration that all life has value, that all life matters, and that all life is worthy of protection,” Kemp said at the time. “I realize that some may challenge it in a court of law. But our job is to do what is right, not what is easy. We are called to be strong and courageous, and we will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life.”

Hollywood, DC Democrats Plot Trump ’Removal’ from Office

Far-left actor John Cusack met with Democrats in Washington, D.C. this week and call for President Donald Trump to be “removed from office.”

The 2012 actor attended Thursday’s “marathon public marathoning” of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report in the House Rules Committee meeting room.

John Cusack responded to a headline from the Hill noting his calls for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

“I didn’t “call for impeachment” actually as we’ve been doing that for years now – I came to discuss what they are doing to protect us from the assault on democracy from trump crime mob,” the actor said.

CAP

Cusack aligned himself with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his neo-Marxist paradigm of politics as a power struggle between various arbitrarily defined demographic groups. The 52-year-old actor retweets messages invoking “white capitalist patriarchy,” “progressive” politics, and characterizing those opposing abortion as “fascists.”

CAP

During the day, Cusack derided Attorney General William Barr as a “criminal” for adhering to federal law by redacting restricted grand jury information pertaining to Mueller’s aforementioned report.

CAP

Cusack was reported as wearing a jacket with the message “Good Night White Pride” during his visit to the Capitol.

“Trump needs to be removed from office,” declared Cusack.

Rachel Bade of the Washington Post and CNN tweeted of an exchange of hers with Cusack:

So THIS Is fun: Actor @JohnCusack is on the Hill meeting w/members abt impeaching Trump, sounds like.

He’s abt to huddle with Judiciary Chair @RepJerryNadler

Me to Cusack: Why are you here?
Him: Guess.
Me: Impeachment?
He smiles and adds: “And other things.”

CAP

In March, Cusack echoed the Washington Post‘s Trump-era motto, “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” claiming that American democracy can only survive if Trump “rots in prison.” Days later, he predicted a violent transfer of power to a Democrat administration in the event that Trump is not reelected in 2020.

JAMES WOODS BANNED FROM TWITTER AMID SILICON VALLEY’S CONSERVATIVE BLACKLISTING CAMPAIGN

James Woods Banned from Twitter Amid Silicon Valley’s Conservative Blacklisting Campaign

Twitter suspended Woods for a tweet that read, “‘If you try to kill the King, you best not miss’ #HangThemAll.”

By Justin Caruso

James Woods, one of the few conservative stars in Hollywood, has been locked out of his Twitter account for over a week now for “abusive behavior,” once again demonstrating the double standard the tech giant holds when it comes to enforcing rules.

Twitter suspended Woods for a tweet that read, “‘If you try to kill the King, you best not miss’ #HangThemAll,” according to his girlfriend Sara Miller.

CAP

The tweet was apparently in reference to the Mueller report, which found no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. The quote is from Ralph Waldo Emerson and has been used in various forms in movies and TV shows like The Wire.

Nevertheless, this post apparently met the threshold on Twitter for “abusive behavior.”

Twitter does not appear to have the same standard for leftists. As Breitbart News has reported, there are several examples of actual violent threats going unchecked by the social media company.

  • Twitter allowed a number of verified accounts to participate in doxxing and violent threats against teenagers from Covington Catholic high school in January.
  • Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was on the receiving end of vicious sexist Twitter abuse after she defended Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
  • Actor Peter Fonda said that Barron Trump should be taken away from his Melania and put in a cage with pedophiles. Fonda also called for Kirstjen Nielsen to be whipped. He later apologized.
  • Hollywood star Jim Carrey posted a drawing of Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. getting bludgeoned to death by an elephant last year. The tweet is still up.
  • In 2016, various accounts called for and cheered on the shooting of police officers.

Woods has been locked out of his account before for posting a meme.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has previously claimed that while he is “more left-leaning,” his company does not target users over political views.

“I think the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints? We are not. Period. We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology. We look at behavior,” he said last year.

Alec Baldwin Declares Lindsey Graham ‘Trump’s Fluffer’

Hollywood actor and Saturday Night Live faux-President Trump Alec Baldwin smeared Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), calling him President Donald Trump’s “fluffer” in a social media post Wednesday.

“How is it that God -fearing Americans from South Carolina believe that @LindseyGrahamSC , who is nothing more than Trump’s fluffer, passes as worthy of a seat in the US Senate?” Alec Baldwin said.

CAP

According to Dictionary.com. “A fluffer is — or at least is said to be — someone on a pornographic film set that keeps a male performer’s penis erect in between scenes.”

Sen. Graham was the target of much scorn Wednesday after he defended President Trump from allegations of collusion with Russia.

“I appreciate very much what Mr. Mueller did for the country. I have read most of the report. For me, it is over,” Graham said.

The South Carolina Republican also read aloud texts from former FBI agent Peter Strzok that showed hatred for the president, including one text where Strzok called Trump a “fucking idiot.”

MSNBC personality Nicolle Wallace accused Graham of being a “human shield for Donald Trump and it would appear, William Barr.”

Hollywood stars and establishment media pundits used homophobic slurs against Lindsey Graham after his performance during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing as well.

Rosie O’Donnell called him a “closeted idiot” and Kathy Griffin referred to him as “Miss.”

“Look at Miss Lindsey Graham trying to be all tough! What?Does Putin have a picture of Lindsay fucking a donkey? #KanavaughHearings,” Griffin said.

ILHAN OMAR: “THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE THE COUNTRY OF WHITE PEOPLE”

Ilhan Omar: "This is Not Going to be the Country of White People"

Dem Rep. Blames Trump for synagogue shootings

 | Infowars.com – MAY 1, 2019

Rep. Ilhan Omar asserted “This is not going to be the country of white people” during a rally in DC yesterday.

“At this moment, the occupant of the White House and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is [sic] terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community,” the Congresswoman told the crowd, suggesting that the recent synagogue shootings were Trump’s fault despite both shooters explicitly expressing their opposition to Trump.

Omar went on to emphasize that she was a “refugee” and an “immigrant” from Somalia, which she said Trump would call a ‘shithole country’.

And who could argue with her? With its rampant violence, corruption and oppression of women, Somalia is an ideal destination, which is presumably why its tourist industry is thriving.

Asserting that America “was founded on the history of Native American genocide, on the backs of black slaves,” she went on to brazenly state, “This is not going to be the country of white people.”

Imagine if a white Republican had made a speech in which he or she asserted, “This is not going to be the country of black people.”

Their political career would be finished and their reputation would tainted for the rest of their life.

But since the last acceptable form of racism is racism against white people, Omar’s statement is a mere footnote.

Omar is still whining about Trump drawing attention to her absurd statement that 9/11 was “some people (who) did something” as if she is the victim.

For weeks, the media has helped Omar push the narrative that criticism of her is tantamount to inciting violence and far worse than her original ludicrous statement.

During the rally, her supporters chanted “hands off Ilhan,” attempting to further the idea that she should be immune from criticism just because she wears and Islamic headscarf and claims victimhood.
