Hillary’s fundraising visit to Hollywood would have been greeted with evil “flying monkey” signs

Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton is scheduled to speak tonight night at a Democratic National Committee Fundraiser event at Brentwood’s Tavern restaurant in Los Angeles.

The fundraiser event — the third major Demonrat fundraising in L.A. in a month — is sponsored by Hollywood heavyweights and diehard Demonrats director Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Disney Studio chairman Alan Horn. Tickets for the event for monied Hollyweirdos, which include a reception, photo and dinner, cost $32,400 each — the maximum allowed individual contribution to a national party committee per calendar yer.

Below is the image that would have greeted the Hildebeast — that of an evil flying monkey from The Wizard of Oz.

According to Tina Daunt of The Hollywood Reporter, Oct. 17, 2014, the “flying monkey” sign is the creation of guerrilla street artist SABO.

Last Friday morning, SABO hung signs depicting Wizard of Oz flying monkeys holding “Hillary 2016″ signs from traffic lights and pasted them on utility boxes near the Tavern Restaurant. In an email to Hollywood Reporter, SABO explains, “All these leftists, I’m tired of their s—.”

But SABO recounted that almost immediately, one poster near a Whole Foods grocery store was “violently” torn down.

Louisiana native SABO, the conservatives’ answer to liberal artists like Shepard Fairey, had moved to Los Angeles in 1987 to attend the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

SABO recently made headlines with his Gwyneth Paltrow “Obama Drone” poster. (See DCG’s post, “Angry neighbors slam Gwyneth Paltrow after she throws political party for Barack Obama“.)

Funny stuff: Posters put up in Paltrow's neighborhood

Some of SABO’s other works include:

  • A caricature of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi twerking, which helped launch the conservative website Breitbart California, triggered demands for an apology from a cross section of angry Demonrats.

  •  Last year, when Texas pro-abort lawmaker Wendy Davis came to L.A. to raise money, SABO lampooned her as “Abortion Barbie.”

  • In addition to the flying monkey posters, SABO has been busy working on a fake Tavern website, which ridicules Hillary and the Democratic Party.
  • He also has an entire section of his website Unsavory Agents dedicated to Hillary. “It sickens me to see just about every California Republican I run across pull out the white flag in surrender to the coming coronation of Hillary Clinton,” SABO wrote on his website. “They’ve all but given up without a hint of a fight. Let this image be a reminder to them that our lady in waiting is not invincible. Obama came out of nowhere and knocked her off her perch without so much as trying.”

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, SABO said Hollywood and politics have become a focal point of his guerrilla art, particularly with his “Drone” campaign, which also features Samuel L. Jackson, Alec Baldwin and Jon Stewart.

“I think the drone campaign encapsulates how I feel about Hollywood,” he says. “You know, it’s kind of like a double or triple entendre in that, I mean, if you listen to one of these celebrities go on, they’re like, droning on and on and on about how they love Obama or the left or the Democrats, or they drone on about how much Republicans suck, and in a way, much the way an unmanned aircraft flies through the air, these people fly through the airwaves.”

Alas, a mere day after SABO had put up the Hillary flying monkey signs, all of the posters and banners were either removed or painted over.

Because in America today, and especially in Demonrat-worshipping Hollywood, you just can’t have those satiric but entirely accurate flying monkey signs offend Queen Hillary, free speech be damned.

Actor Ben Affleck dislikes Republicans; defends Islam

ben-affleck-batmanFirst view of Affleck as the new Batman, sure to be a flop

Yesterday, actor Ben Affleck tweeted that “I do not like Republicans.”

This is conservative blogger KLSouth‘s response:

Ben Affleck

Today, Affleck’s tweet has disappeared from his Twitter account.

That means not only is Affleck intolerant, he’s also a coward.

Two Fridays ago on Bill Mayer’s show, Affleck ferociously defended Islam.

As recounted by the New York Daily News, Mayer was calling on liberals to defend liberal (i.e., freedom-loving) principles. He said, “Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles that liberals applaud for. But then when you say in the Muslim world this is what’s lacking, then they get upset.”

Smugly claiming that he understands “the officially codified doctrine of Islam,” Affleck insists that radical Islamists are NOT the majority of Muslim views, and calls “gross, racist, and disgusting” any conception of Islam that is otherwise.

Hey, genius Affleck!

There is no “officially codified doctrine of Islam” because Muslims are bitterly divided between Sunnis and Shïtes. And because every 2-cent Muslim “teacher” can declare himself an imam.

Then there’s what the Quran says:

islam Religion of Terror

Affleck is out promoting his new flick, Gone Girl.

Make sure you stay away.

Angry neighbors slam Gwyneth Paltrow after she throws political party for Barack Obama

Funny stuff: Posters put up in Paltrow's neighborhood

Funny stuff: Posters put up in Paltrow’s neighborhood

DailyMail: Playing the part as the perfect dinner party host Obama drone, it seemed Gwyneth Paltrow was going out of her way to please everybody. But sadly, that didn’t include her neighbors, who have hit out at the actress for hosting the Democratic National Committee fundraiser for President Obama at her house on Friday.

One neighbor in particular, Attorney Bret D. Lewis spoke to Radar slamming the event as “extremely poor planning on Gwyneth’s part”. He added: “Politicians have the right to raise funds, and Gwyneth has the right to throw a party, but next time she decides to throw a political fundraiser, do not do it on our street.”

The site reports that Gwyneth’s neighbors were denied entry to their homes, in the Mandeville Canyon community in Brentwood, California. Lewis continued: “Mandeville Canyon has only one road that connects us to the rest of the city. Gwyneth lives at the bottom of the canyon, so basically everyone was shut out. There is no other access in or out of the canyon except to use this road.”

To have this road closed off is a horrible thing. My daughter had an exam the next morning and was very upset, but God forbid someone had a heart attack, or there was a real emergency.” The attorney also claims that partygoers were seen putting out cigarettes in the area, despite Mandeville Canyon being a fire trap.

He also claims that several neighbors have taken to a private social networking group to vent their frustration, but Gwyneth – who is also a member – has stayed silent on the matter.

I don’t know if the neighbors are justified in their complaints, having no specific knowledge of the logistics of the neighborhood. I just think the posters are hilarious!

Romney tells a birther joke

On Sunday night (Oct. 12, 2014), while campaigning for 2014 U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst of Iowa, former GOP presidential nominee and Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney told a birther joke about President Ebola:

President Obama went to the bank to cash a check and he didn’t have his ID. And the teller said you’ve got to prove who you are.

He said, “How should I do that?” She said the other day Phil Mickelson came in, he didn’t have his ID but he set up a little cup on the ground, took a golf ball, putted it right into that cup so they knew it was Phil Mickelson. They cashed his check.

And then Andre Agassi came in. And Andre Agassi didn’t have his ID either. He put a little target on the wall, took a tennis ball and racquet– hit it onto that target time. We knew that was Andre Agassi so we cashed his check.

And she said to him, “Is there anything you can do to prove who you are?” And [Obama] said, “I don’t have a clue.”

And she said, “Well, Mr. President, do you want your money in small bills or large bills.”

H/t BirtherReport

Remember what the late Joan Rivers said to a reporter two months before she died, after going into a coma while undergoing a routine endoscopy?

She said, “We all know he [Obama] is gay and Michelle is a tranny.”

Just as Hollywood and the MSM “all know” we have a homosexual president and a transgender first lady, America’s political élites also “all know” about Obama’s bogus birth certificate and his constitutional ineligibility to be president of the United States.

But I do give Romney some credit for being the first nationally-known politician to bring up this subject, albeit in a joke.

Too bad, so sad: #LapDogMedia MSNBC spiraling down in ratings

msnbc

NY Times: Rachel Maddow, the biggest star on the MSNBC cable network, just posted her lowest quarterly ratings results ever. “Morning Joe,” MSNBC’s signature morning program, scored its second-lowest quarterly ratings, reaching an average of just 87,000 viewers in the key news demographic group.

And “Ronan Farrow Daily,” the network’s heavily promoted new afternoon show, which stars a 26-year-old Rhodes Scholar with a high-profile Hollywood lineage, has been largely a dud.

Though it has mostly happened quietly, which may be a comment on the cable network’s larger status in the media landscape, MSNBC has seen its ratings hit one of the deepest skids in its history, with the recently completed third quarter of 2014 generating some record lows.

Phil Griffin and his "star"...

Phil Griffin and his “star”…

Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, acknowledged that his network had been struggling, but put it in the context of the overall drop in cable news. “This has been a tough year all around,” he said. “All three cable news channels are drawing a smaller combined audience than they were five years ago.(He must not be including Fox News in his statement: “In addition to being the most-watched basic cable network for the 2014 quarter in primetime, Fox News Channel saw across-the-board growth vs. Q3 2013. FNC was up +2% in viewers and up +4% in the A25-54 demo for total day viewing and up +10% in viewers and up +11% in the demo in primetime.)  He also emphasized that despite the plunge that caused it to trail CNN in the last quarter, the network remained ahead of CNN for the full year.

In the past, MSNBC’s ratings have typically fallen during times of intensely followed major news events. The current period is awash in them, with stories like ISIS and Ebola commanding a high degree of international reporting. This plays well to CNN’s strengths.

MSNBC consciously established its brand as politics-centric, approaching stories from a left-of-center viewpoint, in deliberate contrast to the right-of-center approach of Fox News, which continues to dominate the news channel ratings. At the same time, MSNBC moved away from a close relationship with NBC News that it had during the early years of the network. Today, fewer NBC News correspondents appear on MSNBC.

Mr. Griffin said that a general apathy about American politics has also hurt the network. “You can look at the dysfunction in Washington, the wariness about politics, the low approval ratings,” he said. “That’s had an impact. But we’ve got to adjust; we’ve got to evolve.”

MSNBC’s recent results have not been encouraging. During the third quarter, Ms. Maddow reached an average of 183,000 viewers in the audience component that most matters to MSNBC’s advertisers, viewers between the ages of 25 and 54, her lowest total since she started her show in 2008.

More worrying is the slide for “Morning Joe,” which has, for much of its time on the air, enjoyed status as one of the most talked-about shows in media industry circles. Now the heat around the show seems to have dissipated. For four straight months, and six of the last eight, “Morning Joe” has trailed CNN’s new morning entry, “New Day.”

One longtime news executive who has worked for both network and cable news organizations said the problem with “Morning Joe” was partly a broader issue with MSNBC. “ ‘Morning Joe’ has been hurt because no one is tuning in to watch the channel now; they go right by,” he said. “The show took its eye off the ball, but you can’t discount the fact that nobody is watching the channel.”

The executive, who asked not to be identified because of potential future business with MSNBC, said Ms. Maddow remains a draw, but her format has grown tired. “In terms of Rachel, everybody knows every night what she’s going to say,” he said. “The network just doesn’t surprise you.”

MSNBC’s other numbers are no prettier. Over all in prime time, MSNBC, which for years had squashed CNN head-to-head on weeknights, has recently dropped consistently behind that network. The falloff over the last five years is stark. In the first quarter of 2009, MSNBC averaged 392,000 viewers in the 25-54 demographic for its weeknight lineup. In the third quarter of this year, the number was down to 125,000.

The network’s newest prime-time host, Chris Hayes, also hit a low in the third quarter, averaging 129,000 viewers in the 25-54 category, his worst since his show began in the second quarter of 2013.

The median age of the MSNBC viewer has also ticked upward. Five years ago it was 58; now it is 61. CNN has edged down a bit, from 62 five years ago to 59. Fox News has aged from 65 to 68.

On Monday and Friday of last week, only one MSNBC show all day, “Hardball” with Chris Matthews, even topped 100,000 viewers in that 25-54 group. And the daytime numbers are much worse. Mr. Farrow’s show averaged just 45,000 viewers in the preferred group, down 51 percent from other programming in the same slot last year.

Some of the losses at MSNBC reflect a drift away from cable news channels in general, as Mr. Griffin noted. Over the last five years, Fox News and CNN are both down 13 percent in total audience in prime time; MSNBC is down 21 percent. Fox has little to worry about because its numbers so dwarf the others. CNN has responded with a new strategy that mixes its traditional hard news approach with a regular lineup of pre-produced original series. It had a major success last week with the latest of them, “Somebody’s Gotta Do It,” with Mike Rowe.

As for MSNBC, Mr. Griffin remained optimistic despite the challenges. He defended the network’s approach, but also hinted that it had to broaden its programming beyond politics. “We have a good brand, a strong brand,” he said. “But we’ve got to get outside Washington and open up our aperture a little.”

Did You Know That Republicans Are Responsible For Ebola?

No? Well folks I do believe the Dipwads of the Democrat party are running so scared that they just may have reached a new low in political advertising. Ebola = Death = GOP.  You know those LIV’s will put it together. Please watch it. It’s one minute. 

——————————————————————————————-

The Agenda Project is a progressive non-profit political organization founded in 2010 by author Erica Payne. This ad, featuring clips of Mitch McConnell, Pat Roberts, and many other Republicans implies that austerity cuts to the Centers for Disease Control and National Institutes of Health are responsible for the 2014 Ebola outbreak. This ad with run in Kentucky and other states leading up to the election.

Which Side Of The Fence?

This was sent to me and it was attributed to Jeff Foxworthy. I’ve checked and it seems he did not write it, and the author is unknown. Still pretty funny.-

———————————————————————————————–

Which side of the fence? If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one. If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat. If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels. A Democrat demands that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church. A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. A Democrat will delete it because he’s “offended”.
