This is rich: DiCaprio named U.N. messenger of peace for climate

hypocrite2

Reuters: Hollywood actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio has been named a United Nations Messenger of Peace, a post he will use to raise awareness about climate change, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Tuesday.

DiCaprio will address a U.N. summit meeting on climate change on Sept. 23, a day before the U.N. General Assembly’s annual gathering of world leaders begins. Many leaders from the 193 member states of the United Nations are expected to attend the climate session.

“Leonardo DiCaprio is not just one of the world’s leading actors,” Ban said. “He has also a long-standing commitment to environmental causes, including through his foundation.”

In 1998, the actor established the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, whose mission is protecting Earth’s last wild places and building a more harmonious relationship between humanity and the natural world, the United Nations said in a statement. The organization has contributed funds toward protecting tigers in Nepal, elephants in the wild, and marine animals, including sharks.

“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history – it is a moment for action,” DiCaprio was quoted as saying in the statement. “How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”

DiCaprio, 39, added that it was an honor for him to accept the post.

The Academy Award-nominated star of “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Aviator” joins other celebrities past and present, from Audrey Hepburn to Angelina Jolie, who have represented various U.N. organizations.

There are currently 11 other messengers of peace and one goodwill ambassador, the United Nations said. Other messengers who advise the world body on a variety of issues include actors Michael Douglas and Charlize Theron and author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.

Well isn’t that special? The UN has an environmental hypocrite to raise awareness about climate change. Figures.

Hollywood job loss increased 19% in 2 years

Hollyweird

Dave McNary reports for Variety, Sept. 10, 2014, that preliminary statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show a steady erosion of jobs in the motion picture and sound industries.

Employment in those two industries has dropped to 298,000 in August — marking the first time in the past decade that the number has dropped below 300,000. To better understand the 298,000 jobs, that figure is:

  • 8% decline from a year ago when total employment in the motion picture and sound industries was 324,600 jobs.
  • 19% decline from 2 years ago when total employment was 366,300 jobs in August 2012.

Hollywood’s declining employment will continue. On Sept. 4, Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara told the studio’s 8,000 employees that layoffs were coming at every level.

The industry has been hit by a sharp decline in domestic box office, with summer business generating the poorest total in eight years. Additionally, production incentives outside the U.S. have continue to lure producers to use international locations.

The BLS stats showed that average hourly earnings of $29.20 in July for all employees and $23.71 for non-supervisory employees.

The Motion Picture Association of America’s (MPAA) statistics for 2012 — the most recent period covered by the industry group — asserted that the industry supports a total of 1.9 million direct and indirect jobs for a total of $111 billion in total wages in 2012, with the direct jobs generating $46 billion in wages, and an average salary 43% higher than the national average. “There were over 293,000 jobs in the core business of producing, marketing, manufacturing, and distributing motion pictures and television shows,” the MPAA said. “These are high quality jobs, with an average salary of $86,500, 76% higher than the average salary nationwide.

The MPAA estimates that there were nearly 360,000 jobs in related businesses that distribute motion pictures and TV shows to consumers. The “indirect” jobs include caterers, dry cleaners, florists, hardware and lumber suppliers, and digital equipment suppliers. This also includes jobs in other fields that do business with consumers, such as DVD and Blu-ray retailers and employees at theme parks and tourist attractions.

I read some of the 259 comments on this article on Variety. The comment below is representative:

Kim says:

I think folks are tired of going to the movies and having liberal agendas shoved down their throats instead of entertainment. Hollywood has alienated a huge segment of America that simply does not agree and the box office reflects that..

Bear in mind that Hollywood employment is plummeting DESPITE the 20% tax cut “the entertainment industry” has enjoyed since the 1950s.

And they want more: A bill in Sacramento will increase California’s “incentives” for Hollywood from the current $100 million to $400 million a year. (See DCG’s post on this, here.)

News flash feminists: Criminals will always exist!

feminism6

The recent leak theft of celebrity nude photos has feminists all up in arms. Granted, the photos were stolen and we should all have a right to privacy, or so we think (ever heard of NSA?).

Celebrities and feminists on Twitter are outraged. Here’s some of their comments:

@PattyArquette: “Every time someone opens a stolen intimate nude photo of anyone. They are becoming a sexual molester. Participating in a group molestation.

@chrissyteigen: “People have the right to take whatever pics they want on their own fucking phone. People don’t have the right to hack them. Is it that hard?”

@chrissyteigen: “Are you also a believer in “short skirt, get raped?” RT @InsaneYetSocial Doesn’t change the fact that it’s not a very wise decision.”

@JessicaValenti: “Women: Stand PERFECTLY STILL in your house wearing long pants abstaining from booze with no Internet and you’ll probably be okay.”

@JessicaValenti: “Don’t take nude selfies. Don’t wear skirts. Don’t drink. Don’t go back to his room. This stupid fucking list gets longer every year.”

@shananigins15: “I’m on the fence about the nude selfies, the rest of the list is just an attempt for society to try and control women.”

@PhoeLam: “The Jennifer Lawrence nude photo hack & the reaction around is why I STILL need feminism. #yesallwomen”

@maddielee13: “Because I should have the right to send my boyfriend whatever photos I want, without worrying about hackers, or persecution #yesallwomen”

@KarenEhler: “#IfMyPhoneGotHacked Stop treating women like property. Hacking nude pics = sex crime.”

@exfkaty: “Don’t want nudes leaked? Don’t take nudes. Don’t want to be robbed? Stop owning things. Wanna avoid being killed? Don’t exist in the world.”

I don’t want to debate the fact that it is wrong to hack cell phones – it is. What does confuse me is the fact that women think feminism will somehow end the world of criminals. You can tweet #yesallwomen, #feminism, and #freethenipple all you want – IT WILL NOT STOP THE CRIMINALS.

  • People don’t have the right to hack them.” Since when do criminals care about your rights?
  • without worrying about hackers.” Store your personal items the best that you can. #feminism will not stop a hacker.
  • “Don’t want to be robbed? Stop owning things.” Then why do people lock their doors and have alarms?
  • Stand PERFECTLY STILL in your house.” Be sure to lock your doors though.
  • “Wanna avoid being killed? Don’t exist in the world.” Criminals live for your existence. Don’t want to be a victim? Be prepared.

Is it really that hard to comprehend?

Television: the Drug of the Nation

Aside from an occasional football game, I do not watch television at home. However, once a year I take a one day trip out of town and I use the time in my hotel room to monitor what the nation is watching.

Last year, I stumbled upon Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which I had never seen before. I watched about fifteen minutes of it, and I couldn’t believe the stupidity of it all, and how bad the acting was. Even worse, the actors weren’t playing characters, they were playing themselves. If someone can’t even play themselves realistically, then they really have no talent.

I also spent some time last year watching Disney and Nickelodeon, and I was appalled at the way almost all of their shows subtly, or not so subtly, present sexuality to their young viewers. I also noticed that 90% of the so-called humor on these shows is based on ridicule and humiliation. I shudder at the thought of how many young viewers are losing their innocence and their souls by watching these shows. And how millions of clueless parents are so quick to plop their kids down in front of anything Disney, thinking the brand stands for wholesome entertainment, innocence and purity, when the reality is anything but.

This year, I scanned through a wide swatch of so-called “reality” shows, and they were all awful. I switched to sitcoms and comedy and was amazed at how unfunny they all were. I’m not saying that as some kind of conservative cynic, but as someone who has studied and worked in comedy, and who knows how to make people laugh. None of these shows were funny at all. Not even a sliver. Without their canned laughter, they’re nothing.

All of which begs the question, who watches this crap? And what is going on in their minds?

Obviously, millions of Americans watch this drivel. Not just millions, but tens of millions, hundreds of millions. They can’t all be Obama voters.

And what about the people who make these horrid shows? Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I remember when acting was an art, and there was something that existed called talent. Have you ever been to an acting class? I’ve been to plenty. Actors used to be taught by professionals who stressed the importance of the director and the actors working together to serve the script or play. The ultimate goal was to honor God and elevate man. Today that’s all gone. Now it’s all emotion for emotion’s sake, and acting has been turned into a narcissistic display of self-expression. “Look at me!” is all anyone seems to care about, from the writers and directors to the actors to everyone in between.

I’ve heard television called the “boob tube” and the “hypnotist in the corner.” Both are apt descriptions. Consider the word “program.” Television networks are obsessed with “programming.” Viewers tune into their favorite “programs.” Where else does the word “program” appear? Well, in mind control, for one. Mind control subjects are “programmed.”

Perhaps that is what television has become: an ingenious device to dumb down the masses by programming their minds into whatever their handlers want them to believe. Vigilant Citizen and Henry Makow have both written extensively about this. So have many others. Instead of a Roman circus, the public is given an endless parade of talentless driven and told what to think, how to behave, and who to vote for. God help us all.

“Being a liberal is the best thing on earth you can be”

Narcissist: Inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity. Synonyms: self-centeredness, smugness, ecocentrism.

Grandiose: Affectedly grand or important; pompous.

Hyperbole: A figure of speech in which exaggeration is used for emphasis or effect; an extravagant statement.

After Lauren Bacall’s death, Daily Beast had an article describing her as “as a smart and sharp liberal and anti-communist” and “she was a worldview person”. They said she told Larry King in 2005 that she was “anti-Republican…A liberal. The L-word.”  Let’s examine some of that “total, total, total” best thing on earth shall we?

Why pro-lifers shouldn’t do the ice bucket challenge

I should have known that if Hollyweirdos climb over each other to do something, even when the supposed cause is good, it is for ill.

By now, I’m sure you’ve seen the countless tiresome pics and videos of feel-good “celebrities” taking the Ice Bucket Challenge by dousing themselves with a bucket of cold water. Those challenged are supposed either to dump an ice bucket of cold water over their head, or donate to ALS research. The “celebrities” do both, while posting a video of their icy bath.

It’s all about publicity.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a.k.a. “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”) is a fatal, progressive neurological disease.  It attacks the nerves that control voluntary muscles, so it is sometimes termed “motor neuron disease”.  As the nerves die, muscles weaken and atrophy, including the muscles for breathing; most people suffering from ALS die of respiratory failure.  The cause is unknown and at this point there is no cure, and very little that can even slow disease progression.

So, raising awareness about ALS and increasing support for ALS research is a good thing, right?

Sadly, not so.

Writing for LifeNews.com, Dr. David Prentice warns:

So far, most of the attention and millions of dollars in donation have gone to the ALS Association (ALSA).  However, the ALSA has admitted that it gives some of its money to embryonic stem cell research and has no qualms about doing so in the future…. 

As Rebecca Taylor has pointed out, ALSA also has given money to an affiliate, NEALS, that has given money to a trial that uses stem cells derived from the spinal cord of an aborted fetus

That trial is being run by the University of Michigan and Emory University, and sponsored by a company called Neuralstem which uses aborted fetus cells for research (“from the donated spinal cord tissue of an 8-week-old aborted fetus.”)  All of the Neuralstem trials use cells derived from abortion.

Project ALS, another charity for ALS research, also funds embryonic stem cell research.

APersonsAPerson

The plain truth is there is no reason for scientists or doctors to use EMBRYONIC stem cells, typically harvested from aborted babies, because study after study show that ADULT,  not embrysonic, stem cells are effective in treating diseases. As an example, please see my post on attorney Mattaniah Eytan, whose terminal leukemia was cured by receiving an ADULT stem cell transplantation at the International Center for Cell Therapy and Cancer Immunotherapy (CTCI) in Tel Aviv.

In fact, scientists have found that therapy using embryonic stem cells is prone to immune rejection and the growth of cancerous tumors, some containing hair, teeth, and other body parts. (Read more here.)

If you do want to donate to a good ALS cause, Dr. Prentice suggests the Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center (MSCTC) at the University of Kansas Medical Center. He writes that MSCTC does not do any embryonic or aborted fetal stem cell research, only ADULT and NON-EMBRYONIC stem cell research and clinical trials. The center is planning a potential future trial using adult stem cells for ALS.

The Worst RACISTS in America! (They HATE Black People!)

Do you know who was the biggest supporter and promoter of slavery in America?

Do you know who was so outraged by the abolition of slavery in this country that they formed the Ku Klux Klan and participated in countless murders, beatings, and lynchings?

Do you know who is responsible for undermining the black father and removing him from the home, thus creating an endless cycle of crime and poverty within the black community?

Do you know who is most responsible for promoting abortion among black mothers?

Do you know who has the most to gain by maintaining an underclass of black Americans and preventing them from attaining financial independence?

Do you know who is most adamant about judging people by their skin color rather than their character?

Do you know who is the biggest promoter of division among the races today?

The answer to all of these questions is… the Democratic Party.
