Julia Roberts Finally Says How She Feels About Conservatives Seeing Her Movies – BAD Idea!

Published

on

Ok, now this has to be the most asinine thing I have seen to date, even more so than Robert De Nero’s recent temper tantrum against President Trump.

Let’s be honest with ourselves here. Hollywood is so far gone in its lunacy that it’s no longer even on the same planet as the rest of humanity, and they show it every single day since Donald Trump became our 45th President.

In order to be with the “in crowd” in Hollywood, you have to be pro-choice, you have to fight with all your might to try and remove the Second Amendment from the Constitution, and probably what is most important, you have to be willing to mock and ridicule the same middle-American folks who support your movies, TV shows, or music.

In a newly discovered video which hasn’t been viewed many times, actress Julia Roberts is seen speaking on Broadway giving it her best attempt to elicit support for Hillary Clinton only one month before the 2016 election.

Wow. One thing no one can never accuse Hollywood of is having class.

“You have one job, you are a citizen. You are a citizen. Okay, I’m a liberal. and I am proud of it. Why do conservatives think that people who don’t make serious dollars are not serious people? Why do we let the right wing claim patriotism and religion for themselves?”

What in the world is this woman even talking about? Is she high or something? Maybe Liberals could claim religion for themselves, but to do that they would have to stop booing God when it’s brought up in the Democrat Party Platform.

This, of course, isn’t the first time this has-been has attacked people like you and me. In fact a few years ago she tried to call attention to herself for a quote which was “Republican comes in the dictionary just after reptile and just above repugnant.” Classy huh?

Here is more on how celebrities are hurting the liberal cause via The Daily Beast:

On Friday morning, President Trump partook in one of his favorite rituals this side of hitting the links or avoiding Tiffany: a bill signing. The commander-in-chief, surrounded by ornamental backers, inked the Veterans Affairs Reform Act—a measure that will make it easier to terminate VA employees—before soaking up camera flashes and cabinet applause. Among the admiring spectators was Al Baldasaro, a military veteran and New Hampshire state representative. The presence of Baldasaro, who introduced candidate Trump at a number of campaign stops and served as his adviser on veterans issues, would be unremarkable were it not for the fact that he once called for Hillary Clinton to be killed.

“This whole thing disgusts me. Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason,” said Baldasaro. He was discussing Benghazi, a tragedy wherein the Republican House found no evidence of wrongdoing on Clinton’s behalf, during a July 2016 radio interview. The incendiary remarks triggered a secret service probe, but Baldasaro never received any significant repercussions. And Baldasaro’s cameo at Trump’s recent bill signing received precious little coverage on cable news. You see, they were too busy upbraiding Johnny Depp.

Depp attracted the ire of the news media for disgusting comments he made about the President at England’s Glastonbury Festival Thursday evening. “Can we bring Trump here?” Depp asked the crowd. “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” The Pirates of the Caribbean star was, of course, referencing John Wilkes Booth’s assassination of President Lincoln. He added, “I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while. And maybe it’s time.”

The actor’s incredibly poor—reprehensible, really—attempt at humor received swift condemnation from the White House, which responded with the following statement: “President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official.” The Depp imbroglio also, as expected, sent right-wing media into a tizzy, with everyone from Fox News and Breitbart to Rush Limbaugh tying Depp to a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar featuring a Trump-like protagonist; a photo of Kathy Griffin posing with a severed mannequin head of Trump; Madonna’s idiotic women’s march crack about how she’s “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”; and lastly, the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise by an unhinged Bernie Sanders supporter.

There is causality, some on the right are arguing, between the antics of Depp, the Caesar play, Griffin, and Madonna and acts of violence perpetrated against those on the right, such as the recent shooting of Rep. Scalise—a baseless claim, given that there is no evidence the shooter was influenced by any of these factors. There is also the idea that these celebrity outliers represent not only the views of Hollywood as a whole, but the base of the Democratic Party.

Now, let’s give credit where it’s due: the right are very good at this. Every time a lefty celeb like, say, Lena Dunham opens their mouth and says something stupid, they will throw TV tantrums and sling fiery op-eds for an entire week, milking the outrage teat to the very last drop. Of course, those on the right, especially in the right-wing media, don’t really care what Lena Dunham thinks. Their rationale behind this is simple: Hollywood celebrities are out of touch, therefore all of Hollywood is out of touch; and, since most of Hollywood is comprised of “coastal liberal elites,” then this one rogue celebrity’s views represent the whole. It’s part of the ongoing culture war fomented by the right, pitting these “coastal liberal elites” against Middle America’s working class—an opera that Trump, with his faux-disdain for Hollywood and faux-championing of blue-collar folks, is all too willing to conduct.

Forget the fact that Trump, who has spent his entire career exploiting the working class and cozying up to celebrities, is an outrageous hypocrite. His supporters don’t care. Heck, they cheered when he trotted out a former Goldman Sachs executive at a rally this past week in Cedar Rapids. So, given the elements at play here, Hollywood celebrities like Depp, Griffin, and Madonna must stop feeding chum to the right-wing ragemonster. They’ve proven themselves to be far better than the left at exploiting this so-called cultural divide. For evidence, look no further than the race for Georgia’s sixth congressional district, where the opposition issued attack ads that tied Democrat Jon Ossoff to the Kathy Griffin stunt (because she had endorsed him two months earlier on Twitter). You won’t see nearly the same kind of vitriol from the left over the Baldasaro appearance, or that time Trump invited rocker Ted Nugent, who’s called for the deaths of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, over for an Oval Office visit. That unfortunate episode was treated as nothing more than a late-night punchline.

Let’s talk Hollywood for a second. The notion that Johnny Depp, Kathy Griffin or Madonna—or really any celebrity with significant name recognition—somehow speaks for the entire industry is absurd. According to the 2016 Otis Report on the Creative Economy of California, the entertainment industry there employs some 166,300 people. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Labor Statistic reported that, as of May 2016, there are 48,620 actors employed nationwide—including 14,840 in California. The vast majority of these actors are struggling, working multiple jobs to pay the bills. And a great many of them were not born in California to wealth, but migrated there from different parts of the country. Johnny Depp, for example, grew up poor in Owensboro, Kentucky. The average crew size for a Hollywood film production, meanwhile, comes out to around 600 people (Marvel’s The Avengers had 2,718), and most of these crew members have jobs like key grip, security, catering, low-level assistant, etc. Not exactly the “elite.”

All of this does not excuse what Depp, Griffin, and Madonna said or did. Those actions deserve widespread condemnation (Depp deserves far greater scorn for other reasons, although that’s a different story). If these Hollywood liberals want to truly make a difference—that is, make any sort of dent in 2018—then they need to realize they’re easy targets, knock off the outrageous antics, and stick to the issues. And if liberals in general want to start winning elections again, then they must start holding things like Trump’s Baldasaro and Nugent visits to account. Otherwise the Democrats have about as much chance of succeeding as Johnny Depp’s next movie.”

I for one didn’t even know Julia Roberts was around anymore, and after watching this video I can see why. I loved the movie Pretty Woman, but I can’t say I can recall anything else she starred in after that. I know she has made other things but I guess none have really stood out enough to me that I would remember her starring in them. And sadly now even if she were to make Pretty Woman 2, I wouldn’t be watching it.

Libs WILL NOT Like What Trump Could Soon Do That’s WAY BIGGER Than The Border Wall

Americans need to come first. I hope President Trump puts an end to all of this. Bring back jobs to this country.

Quite disturbing to know our private data is going oversees. Yes to the virtual wall!

From Breitbart:

Attorney Sara Blackwell — who represents American workers who are having their jobs threatened by outsourcing — says President Trump can implement a “virtual wall” to end multinational corporations’ business model of offshoring U.S. jobs to foreign countries.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Sunday, Blackwell said the U.S. needs a policy that bans multinational corporations from sending Americans’ data overseas.

Such a policy, Blackwell says, would consequently end the offshoring of American jobs and bring jobs back to the country that were previously outsourced.

“If we put up a virtual wall around our borders and said, ‘None of our private data can go overseas, ever,’ all of those jobs would have to come back, they would all have to come back,” Blackwell said.

“And so we would have so many jobs back in the U.S. and not only that, if we wanted to do … if a company in Europe wanted to sell clothes to someone in America, they’d have to have an office here in the U.S. because our credit card information can’t go overseas. So we would add so many jobs to the United States,” Blackwell said.

“I think a virtual wall would be an amazing thing and would be the ticket to ending the whole business model,” Blackwell continued.

The outsourcing-offshoring business model used by multinational corporations begins by laying off American workers in high-paying, white-collar industries and forcing them to train their foreign replacements, who often arrive in the U.S. on the H-1B visa. Those H-1B visa workers generally work in the country for about a year until the job is moved overseas to developing countries like India, where foreign workers are cheaper.

Blackwell also called out IBM CEO Ginni Rometty — a multinational corporation that now employs more Indian nationals than American workers — for hiking her own salary while laying off thousands of Americans to send their jobs to India.

“IBM is one of the worst offshoring companies I’ve seen. And Ginni Rometty of IBM, she is friends with Ivanka Trump,” Blackwell said.

“I mean it’s like, can we please just everybody pay attention to what’s really happening? I have spoken to thousands of IBM workers who have been fired — not only in the U.S. but all over the world — because they don’t want to pay real wages,” Blackwell said.

“They want to go to these countries like the Phillippines and India, mostly India, to pay these slave wages,” Blackwell said. “And it is very scary what information is going over there.”

POTUS Just Played His ‘Trump Card’ On Paid Migrants Who Rammed Our Border!

A few months ago, Trump changed a law that was put in place by Bill Clinton.

Ironically democrats felt the law was way too harsh. Children were being separated from their parents at the border. After changing the law, border enforcement has seen a massive increase in families trying to cross.

Today, Daily Mail wrote:

Donald Trump threatened on Thursday to seal America’s southern border with military force unless Mexico intervenes to stop the flow of illegal immigrants traveling to the U.S. from Central America.

The stern, tweeted warning came as a group of more than 4,000 travels north through Mexico in the hope of reaching the United States, despite having no visas or other legal papers to enter.

Trump blamed his Democratic rivals for the resulting chaos, saying ‘they want Open Borders and existing weak laws.’

He resurrected the claim that launched his White House campaign in 2015, saying that ‘this large flow of people’ includes ‘MANY CRIMINALS’ and putting the words in uppercase letters for effect.

Trump on Thursday also renewed Wednesday’s threat to stop all payments to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, including humanitarian aid, if their governments ‘allow their citizens, or others, to journey through their borders and up to the United States.’

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to fly to Mexico on Friday.

News emerged Wednesday that the number of illegal immigrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has jumped 80 percent since Trump ended his ‘zero tolerance’ policy in June, with U.S. Border Patrol agents arresting 16,658 family members in September. That’s the highest one-month total on record.

The Washington Post obtained unpublished Department of Homeland Security statistics and published them three weeks before a contentious midterm election, while Trump is urging Republicans to make immigration their number one issue on the campaign trail.

‘We’re getting hammered daily,’ said one Border Patrol agent in South Texas told The Post.

The new numbers also come as a wave of immigrants is on the march from Central America.

Thousands of people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are fleeing to the United States in an effort to escape the poverty and violence that has engulfed their countries.

The Department of Homeland Security, in a statement, blamed congressional inaction and said the high illegal immigrant flow would likely continue without movement on on Capitol Hill.

‘Our nation faces a dangerous crisis on the border that threatens American communities. Congress refuses to close catch-and-release loopholes in the law that would allow authorities to detain and remove family units safely and expeditiously. While we do not have official numbers to report at this time, current trends indicate enforcement efforts against single adults entering illegally have been hugely successful,’ said Department of Homeland Security spokesperson Katie Waldman.

‘However, the removal of actual family units, or those posing as family units, has been made virtually impossible by Congressional inaction – which will most likely result in record numbers of families arriving illegally in the United States this year. At the direction of the President, DHS is continuing to examine all options to secure the border and keep American communities safe, including working with our partners in Central America and Mexico.’

The new numbers have left the president furious, White House aides told the Post.

‘We’re actually getting crushed,’ said one.

Trump is said to be considering reinstating the controversial separation policy that was criticized by members of his own party and the first lady. He sees ‘zero tolerance’ as the one thing that worked.

Trump has received regular updates on the stats and has told senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, who has taken the lead on immigration issues, and Chief of Staff John Kelly that something has to change.

He tweeted about on Wednesday morning, pushing Republicans to make immigration an issue in the November election.

‘Hard to believe that with thousands of people from South of the Border, walking unimpeded toward our country in the form of large Caravans, that the Democrats won’t approve legislation that will allow laws for the protection of our country. Great Midterm issue for Republicans!,’ he tweeted Wednesday morning.
