ABC Has New Plan To Make ‘Roseanne’ without Roseanne Barr – Here’s Who Will Take The Lead Role

If they try this, there could be major issues such as…

Published

on

Only three days after ABC fired Roseanne for a racist tweet and then canceled her show, they are now considering keeping the show on the air, but there’s something extremely wrong with what they want to do. They want to air the show without Roseanne. Instead, they want to focus on her daughter, Darlene. Darlene is not the draw here; Roseanne and hubby are. Some are saying the network wanted to get rid of Roseanne for financial reasons as well. You mean, you have the number one rated show out there that is a cash cow and you don’t want to pay the star that made the show? ABC deserves to go broke and is doing a fine job of it.

Variety magazine is saying that insiders at ABC are reporting that the head honchos want to re-brand “Roseanne” by eliminating Barr’s character and refocusing the plot on the character’s daughter, Darlene. They also cautioned that reviving “Roseanne” could stir up additional drama for the network. However, Roseanne Barr has a contract with the network and if they go on without her, they have to buy her out. “One big problem to overcome is the fact that Barr has a significant financial interest in the series, and there is concern that a new iteration that would benefit her financially would be a non-starter for everyone involved,” Variety noted.

Fox should buy out the contract and entice Roseanne and company over to their network. If Bill Maher can get away with comparing President Trump to an orangutan and not get fired, then Roseanne should be forgiven and get to run with her hit show. The truly ironic part of all this is the reason that ABC wants so desperately to bring “Roseanne” back to life is that they owe a ton of money to the show’s actors, writers and producers. It’s all contractually obligated. “Key actors are said to have a minimum 10-episode guarantee for Season 2, which had an initial order of 13 episodes,” Variety reported. “The highest echelon of writers and producers also have some minimum episodic guarantees.” Oh, this is getting good.

What ABC doesn’t get is if they try this, the ratings could plummet because less people will likely watch it. The show will have lost its appeal to the common viewer out there and could be just another liberal social justice lecture. Many fans are already vowing to boycott ABC over their double standards and blatant hypocrisy.

Black political commentator Larry Elder is arguing that Barr’s “racist” remark about former President Obama’s senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, wasn’t actually racist, let alone worthy of her show being canceled. Sure, it was a bad joke, but Roseanne says she didn’t even know Jarrett was black. Once again, Bill Maher comes to mind. In a tweet posted Wednesday, Elder noted that HBO’s liberal comedian Bill Maher, who is the host of the HBO talk show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” once suggested President Trump is “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” And he’s called Trump an ape many times.

In fact, during Maher’s opening monologue yesterday, he said that he had to do another segment of “Explaining Jokes to Idiots” and pointed out that there were four “key facts” that made his ape jokes different than Barr’s tweet. “One, Trump is an orangutan,” Maher snarked. “Two, white people have not been subjected to a racist trope comparing them to apes for hundreds of years.” Maher’s third explanation was that his joke was in response to Trump’s 2013 accusations that President Obama was not born in America and called for the release of the president’s birth certificate. Maher offered Trump $5 million to provide his own birth certificate, which he did. Maher wouldn’t pay up and Trump sued him for it. “And four, I’ve already been fired by ABC,” Maher said, referring to his “Politically Incorrect” program, which aired from 1993 to 2002.

HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” remains on the air despite political jokes that are vilely aimed at President Trump and his daughter Ivanka. “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” a late-night TBS show whose host who described the President’s daughter as a “feckless c**t” this week is also still on the air. MSNBC’s Joy Reid who pushed 9/11 as a government conspiracy, homophobic slurs and a wide range of other horrid behavior, apologized and is also still on the air. But Roseanne Barr makes an ill-considered joke that Maher has already made and she is fired and shunned for it after she apologizes. The only difference here is that Roseanne went after someone on the left. “@therealroseanne makes the same joke about Obama aide Valerie Jarrett–and Barr’s show gets cancelled,” Elder tweeted. Get it now?

Americans are noticing the double standard and they are furious over it. Fox has picked up Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” that ABC canceled because it was too conservative and it will be a monster hit for them. If they have any sense, they’ll go after Roseanne as well and tell the double standard, witch hunt brigade to pound sand.

Major Network Announces They’re Refusing To Air Anthem Before NFL Games – BAD Idea

Fans want to be entertained with a great game but don’t want to be subjected to politics

Published

By

With football season fast approaching the eternal debate over whether or not it is acceptable to sit or kneel during the national anthem is alive and well again. President Trump, sports commentators, athletes and coaches alike are chiming in and giving their two cents. Now, a major network announced that they are refusing to air the anthem altogether right before any and all National Football League games. Perhaps a very bad idea because the unintended consequence will be record low ratings. Those decisions and choices never end well.

100 Percent Fed Up reported,

“As if we need another reason NOT to watch NFL football, ESPN just gave us another one. ESPN just announced that they will not show the national anthem during “Monday Night Football” broadcasts this year, the company’s president said on Friday. Jimmy Pitaro addressed the controversy at ESPN’s annual football media day: “We generally have not broadcasted the anthem and I don’t think that will change this year,” he said. “Our plan going into this year is to not broadcast the anthem … again that could change. It’s unpredictable what could happen in the world but as of now, we’re not. We have communicated that back to the NFL.” ESPN had already been going the way of the mainstream media with their support of the left’s agenda so this is not a huge surprise. When Jemele Hill trashed President Trump over and over but ESPN finally gave her a slap on the wrist, you knew it was a full-on entity of the leftist media and no longer just a sports news network.

Go figure, The NFL and ESPN continue to shoot themselves in the foot by being so outspoken on politics. Fans want to be entertained with a great game but don’t want to be subjected to politics and anti-Americanism. What doesn’t the management get about what the fans want? Are they that out of touch or are they afraid of their players? Ratings have tanked and will tank even further this year after there has been no change in the pre-game anthem behavior of the spoiled brat multi-millionaire football players.

And so it goes…football fans across America will enjoy spending more time doing other things on the days they used to watch or attend a game. All we have to say to the NFL (Rodger Goodell we’re talking to you) is good luck paying those players the big bucks when you have empty stadiums and no viewers… Football legend Lou Holtz recently weighed in on the anthem controversy: Legendary football coach Lou Holtz just dropped a ton of common sense on the NFL’s national anthem debate after President Trump tweeted about it to say the NFL players should be punished for kneeling: Lou Holtz: “I have never attended a football game that did not have the national anthem before the game, it’s part of the sport.”

Pete Hegseth called out the NFL Commissioner on “caving” to the players by putting a hold on the new anthem policy that requires players on the field to stand for the anthem. He’s spot on! OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE ANTHEM POLICY: The NFL players continue to dig their own grave to sink what was once a wildly popular sport that made millions for players. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! Did team owners finally get the message from American football fans? The team is claiming that, “all options are still open”. Breaking news tells us that in a report from the “proper anthem conduct,” the Miami Dolphins players could be suspended for protesting the national anthem even though the team says all options are open… Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem reportedly could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.

ESPN reports: The “Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a long list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine, or both. Though Titans coach Mike Vrabel said in May that the organization and team owner support players’ decisions in regards to conducting protests during the national anthem, the team wants to talk to Jurrell Casey about his plans to protest social injustice.

In a statement, the Dolphins confirmed they sent the NFL the document, without offering specifics on what plans it laid out. “The NFL required each team to submit their rules regarding the anthem before their players reported to training camp,” the team said. “We will address this issue once the season starts. All options are still open.””

Anthem kneeling has remained a controversial issue for some time. It all began in August of 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to start the protest. He and others argued it was protesting systematic oppression, inequality, and social injustice against African Americans in the United States. While some have supported the protests calling them politically urgent and patriotic, others have not. Those who disagree with them have called them disrespectful and unpatriotic to the military, police, and the American flag.

Other athletes from different sports have joined in from professions such as soccer, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, college, and high school. While political figures have weighed in as well. President Obama said that those kneeling were exercising their constitutional right and that he believed in their sincerity. While Supreme Court Justice Ruther Bader Ginsburg called it dumb and disrespectful. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee knelt on the floor of the House of Representatives and her colleague Representative Mark Pocan did the same exact thing the next day. Vice President Mike Pence left a game for the Indianapolis Colts after San Francisco 49ers players kneeled during the anthem.

Early this year in May the NFL commissioner, as well as the team owners, approved a new guideline and policy that requires all players in the NFL to stand during the anthem. If they choose not to then they have to remain in the locker room for the entire time and only come out for the performance. Now, it has been taken a step further and a network will not air when the national anthem is being played.

Share if you agree that anthem kneeling is wrong.

Share if you think that the NFL is doing the wrong thing.

Share if you believe the President is on the right side of this issue.

Share if you agree that football players should be fired or suspended for anthem kneeling.

Brad Pitt Puts Entire Career At Risk To Expose Hollywood’s Biggest Lie, He’s 100% RIGHT

He’s brave, but someone had to say it.

Published

on

By his own admission, Brad Pitt has always been a man of strong opinions. Given his position as an actor in Hollywood, it is the content of those opinions that may come as a surprise – be it in blaming the 2008 recession on rampant greed, in support of personal firearms ownership, violence in movies, there are a variety of issues Pitt has fearlessly plunged into and countered popular opinion.

Violence in films is a subject Hollywood would just as soon avoid, but not Pitt. In his 2012 film Killing Them Softly, which he also produced, Pitt received a lot of pushback for the very cool but very violent thriller.

Pitt provided a ready answer stating – “It’s a violent world we live in. ‘I don’t agree with trying to hide that or cover it up.” He plays Jackie Cogan, a hitman who prefers to conduct business at a distance (‘not close enough for feelings’) to avoid hearing victims beg for their lives and is hired to investigate the robbery of a Mob-protected poker game.

'America is a country founded on guns... It's very strange but I feel better having a gun,' said Brad Pitt

As complications occur, work is subcontracted to the less-than-competent Mickey, played by The Sopranos’ James Gandolfini, until a climactic bloodbath just as Barack Obama secures election victory.

Cogan says: ‘America is not a country, it’s a business.’

‘Violence, murder, being killed are unfortunate outcomes of the business of crimes,’ says Pitt.

“But all business can be Darwinian and cutthroat, so for me, the killings are metaphorical. A lot of people were losing their homes, it was very upsetting. Deregulation created this epidemic of greed which according to the rules of capitalism was OK. Beyond that, there was criminal behavior. There have been no repercussions and it’s hard to make your peace with.”

Then just a few weeks after the film’s release, James Holmes shot and killed 12 people at a screening of the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado.  He also injured an additional 58 more. With Holmes madness and hatred on full display for the world to see, the battle raged about to what extent screen violence was to blame, along with the usual cries for gun control.

When asked again about his views on personal firearms ownership after the shooting at the Colorado movie theater, Pitt stated with an unequivocal “No. I absolutely don’t believe you can put sanctions or shackles on what is made. Nor do I want to pretend the world is different than what we witnessed that night. Does it contribute to a sick mind? Yes, probably. What can we do about it? It’s a very interesting question. I see society, and every one of us is a part of that society. I don’t have the answer to that. I just know that you can’t start burning books and squashing ideas.”

Pitt also states he will not and has not advocated for any change in U.S. gun laws or for any measure of gun control. He states if anything, they should be laxer. Pitt states – “America is a country founded on guns. It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange but I feel better having a gun. I really do. I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.

Brad's character prefers to conduct business at a distance. As complications occur, work is subcontracted to the less-than-competent Mickey (The Sopranos' James Gandolfini)

I got my first BB gun (a type of air gun) when I was in nursery school. I got my first shotgun by first grade (aged six), I had shot a handgun by third grade (aged eight) and I grew up in a pretty sane environment. I really feel like I’ve hit the lottery.  I was in the UK when the shootings happened and I did hear the discussion about gun control start again, and as far as I know, it petered out as it always does.

It’s just something with us. To turn around and ask us to give up our guns… I don’t know, we’re too afraid that we’re going to give up ours and the bad guys are still going to get theirs. It’s just in our thinking. I’m telling you, we don’t know America without guns.”

In his latest film, Killing Them Softly, Brad plays hitman Jackie Cogan

Pitt is now halfway through his fifth decade with a reputation as a film producer that rivals his finest acting performances. Unlike the young actor of the Nineties – too pretty and too famous for his own good, “sitting on the couch, holding a joint, hiding out” – Pitt is now firmly in the driving seat, an unconventional Hollywood power player. There is no mid-life crisis looming, despite the streaks of silver now running through his goatee.

A father of six children with now ex-wife Angelina Jolie – Maddox, Zahara Marley, Shiloh, Pax, and biological twins, Knox and Vivienne, Pitt states he spends a lot of time thinking about how he is raising his children, just as any good parent does.

“I spend a lot of time thinking about how I’m raising them – what do I want to impart to them, the opportunities I need to give them – that takes up a lot of my day. I think living in different places is the best education we’ve been able to give the kids. There are certain confinements that come with our lives but that side is the positive and it certainly makes up for it,” Pitt states.

Pitt states he has always craved a big, chaotic family, describing it as being “this idea of a big, boisterous, gregarious, New York family that I liked, all hitting and yelling at each other. It seemed ferocious but there was a lot of love in it. They related to each other. I was really affected by it. I try to pass that love of stories on to the kids. You know, at bedtime… when we were watching the Olympics, stories about the athletes. Or stories in films. That’s what we talk about.”

The discussions may be surprisingly adult and is trying to pass along a love of art and film to his children – “I enjoy it when we sit down and share a film together… though I’m pushing the age of understanding. Yeah. The films are a little beyond the grade but I’ll tell you it sparked some very interesting conversation. But the Batman massacre did make me think I can’t be completely frivolous about what I show my kids.”
