- Leonardo DiCaprio, Environmental Hypocrite
- Environmental hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio’s superyacht has huge carbon footprint
That preachy, sanctimonious environmentalist is at it again, oblivious to the irony of him vacationing on a gas-guzzling, CO2 spewing, 450 ft. superyacht, anchored off the Mediterranean coast of France for the annual debauchery known as the Cannes Film Festival.
Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio is his off-camera scruffy Howard Hughes mode:
Heather Waugh reports for the Daily Mail, May 21, 2014, that the superyacht Rising Sun was custom built in 2004 by Lurssen Yachts and owned by David Geffen, the openly homosexual co-founder of Dreamworks Studio (with director Steven Spielberg), whom former Hollywood powerhouse Michael Ovitz calls the leader of Hollywood’s Gay Mafia. (See “The Gay Mafia and America’s aggressive homosexual agenda“)
The superyacht reportedly cost $200 million to build and is the 11th largest yacht in the world. It offers accommodation for up to 16 guests, a cinema, a wine cellar and is capable of carrying up to 45 crew members on board. It also boasts a basketball court which can be transformed into a helipad if necessary.
So how much of a carbon footprint does Rising Sun make?
In 2014, Leo borrowed another super yacht, the 482-ft. Topaz, to watch the World Cup in Brazil and party in style.
According to Monalisa Gangopadhyay of Liberty Voice, the $680 million Topaz is the 5th largest super yacht in the world, and belongs to billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates. The super yacht is replete with luxurious features that include a top deck jacuzzi, opulent staterooms, a swimming pool, gym, movie theater, a large conference room, and two helipads.
But all these luxuries come at an environmental cost. A super yacht like the Topaz [and Rising Sun] can burn thousands of liters of marine diesel every hour as it cuts an impressive swatch through the ocean waters, leaving behind trails of smoke and tones of carbon dioxide. Additionally, such crafts can use up to 1000 liters a day or more just for its air-conditioning and electrical systems, according to Yacht Carbon Offset, a company that provides carbon offsetting for its seafaring clients.
This is the same Leonardo DiCaprio whom another hypocrite, tax-dodger Secretary of State John Kerry, had invited to talk about conservation at the State Department’s Our Ocean conference on June 17, 2014.
Kerry, who at age 70 went under the knife for major cosmetic surgery, and flicks his tongue like a snake, lauded DiCaprio for having demonstrated continued dedication towards protecting the world’s oceans.

Beyoncé and Jay Z wired ‘tens of thousands’ of dollars to bail out protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo., a writer says.
Jay Z and Beyoncé bankrolled protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson with tens of thousands of dollars in bail money, a writer and social activist close to him claimed.
“I can say I’ve personally helped facilitate donations they’ve given to protesters directly and that they never ask for anything in return, especially publicity,” author dream hampton told the Daily News in an email.
The writer, who collaborated on Jay Z’s book “Decoded,” first revealed the power couple’s behind-the-scenes support in a series of tweets on Sunday morning.
“When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I asked hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, wired tens of thousands in mins.” hampton wrote.
Mesfin Fekadu reports for the AP that in an interview on Wednesday, May 13, 2015, folk singer James Taylor, 67, said:
“I’ve been watching politics since (Dwight) Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, and Obama is my favorite, favorite president. I am just thankful for every day that he’s in office. I am so proud that he represents my country and I think he represents me — I think he represents the America that I know.”
Taylor also called Obama “sane” and “balanced,” and his family “precious.”
The singer continued his effusive praise of Obama — the president who is bankrupting the U.S. economy with record debt, worsened race relations, imposed massive NSA surveillance, heartlessly left 4 Americans to die in Benghazi, and alienates our allies while appeasing America’s enemies:
“He promised to give us a health care system, it’s a work in progress, but he has put us on a road to that. I’m so grateful for what he’s done for gay rights and for the emancipation of gay people. Particularly from my point of view, I think that was so overdue and so important, and so important for America to be ahead of the curve on this. Every day that Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are in the White House is a day that I am thankful for.”
Obama isn’t the only politician Taylor is supporting. He’s a big supporter of Hillary for President 2016:
“And aside from the fact that she’s a woman running, she’s the right person. … The whole point — black or white, male or female, gay or straight, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, atheist — it doesn’t matter what these other connections are. “ur country needs to come together and the question is, ‘Is this public servant someone who will bring us together?’ And I think she is.”
I think James Taylor’s addiction to heroin has fried his melon.
Here’s to you, James Taylor!

I am stifling a gag as I post this piece. Please note that this is the former governor of Maryland, who’s city of Baltimore hosted the ugliest race riots since Rodney King, and who’s leftist policies set up the conditions that caused them.
Yes, he’s white and has an Irish name. But before you start feeling safe, remember another white guy white an Irish name who endorsed Barack Obama in his first run for president.
America, brace yourselves for an onslaught of the stupidest reasons imaginable to vote for a presidential candidate.
Whenever I hear the expression “Ignorance is bliss”, I think about a television sitcom, or the actors I see in television commercials or in print ads. They’re not just happy, they’re giddy. Indescribably giddy. All because they just saved 15% on their car insurance, or scored tickets to the latest concert. Life, filled with calamities, goes on all around them, but they’re oblivious. Their lives are laughter and mirth.
I can count the number of people I know like that in real life on one hand.
One was a girl I worked with. She was short and covered with tattoos. She smiled constantly. She had a witty mind and every verbal exchange was good for a laugh or a smile. She had no clue about politics or current events. She was nineteen-years-old with a two-year-old daughter, a live-in boyfriend, and she was sleeping her way through every male in the company.
The second was a girl I dated briefly. She also had a witty mind and a contagious laugh. In fact, she never knew when to stop laughing. Everything was a joke. I have no idea where she is now.
The last one was an actress I performed with. She knew nothing of current events, but thought she did. Of course, she was a leftist. Her whole existence was acting, singing and dancing. Last I heard she was a drunk.
So where are all these other giddy, blissful people? And how about this matter of ignorance? If we’re willing to be perfectly honest (and most people aren’t), then it’s obvious to anyone with a brain that Democrats are ignorant.
You want proof, you say? Well, take a look out the window. Look at the economic policies that have destroyed our cities. Look at the tax rates and regulations that have strangled small business owners and forced corporations to outsource jobs and factories. Look at our education system. Look at your paycheck, for crying out loud, and how little money you have left after Uncle Sam takes his cut. All of these and more are policies introduced and put into law by Democrats. And yet voters continue to elect them.
Whenever there’s a deadly shooting, the alleged shooter is a Democrat. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/06/11/sensible-gun-control/)
Whenever there’s a race riot, hate crime, or civil unrest, the people involved are Democrats. (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/black-racism-race-riots/)
Whenever our country’s morals are lowered through crass and vulgar “art” or cinema, the people responsible are Democrats.
We have entire cities that have been under complete Democrat control for decades (Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore) or centuries (Atlanta), and they’re all hellholes, filled with violence, crime and anger.
I see a lot of ignorance, but not much bliss. And they all seem pretty angry to me.
Ignorance isn’t bliss. Ignorance is anger. Ignorance is hatred. Ignorance is violence. Ignorance is being a Democrat.
