Hollyweird Clinton supporter was so poor she couldn’t afford to buy designer shoes

First-World Problems.

Poor Anna Kendrick...

Poor Anna Kendrick…

In 2015, Kendrick showed her support for Hillary in such an eloquent way. She tweeted, “Madonna kissed Drake, Hilary’s running for president, but HBO STILL hasn’t shown this dude’s dick (with a picture of an actor)?? #FeministPriority

From Daly Mail: Her nomination for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for 2009’s Up In The Air catapulted her to stardom. But Anna Kendrick revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday that at the time she was completely broke.

‘It was this weird combination of like all these great things are happening but at the same time nothing has changed,’ the actress, 31, said.

‘My stylist told me I had to wear the perfect shoes for an outfit, and because the movie isn’t out yet, she said, nobody really knows who you are. The shoe places don’t want to loan you the shoes so can you buy a pair of Louboutins?‘ Kendrick explained. ‘And I’m like, I’m so poor….’ she said.

The horror didn’t stop there either.

She recalled how she was sent by the film distribution company to New York to promote the film that also starred George Clooney and Vera Farmiga, and they put her up in a very nice hotel.

‘At one point I was like, if we do another trip to New York can you put me up in a less nice hotel room and then I could keep some of the cash,’ she recounted. ‘And they were like, ‘no this is not how this works!”

Kendrick was on Ellen to promote her new book Scrappy Little Nobody and also to promote her new film Trolls.

In the animated feature, she worked with Justin Timberlake who also provided one of the character voices. The two also sang together including recording a version of True Colors for the soundtrack.

‘It was a career highlight for me watching him do his thing,’ she gushed of the former NSync’er.


Facebook billionaire gives another $20M to defeat Donald Trump one month after donating $15M to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats

I quit Facebook two years ago. Don’t. Miss. It. At. All.

Dustin Moskovitz

Dustin Moskovitz

From Daily Mail: A billionaire Facebook founder has agreed to donate $20 million to defeat Donald Trump just weeks before the election.

Dustin Moskovitz, 32, announced his latest donation in a post he wrote for Medium earlier this month, stating: ‘The events of the past few weeks have only deepened my conviction that Hillary is the best choice for America. I hope that these contributions will help make that outcome a reality.’

Just one month prior, Moskovitz revealed in another Medium post that he has donated $15 million to help elect Clinton and other Democrats. But despite these staggering donations, many in the Democratic party know very little about Moskovitz, who is worth $10.7billion according to Forbes.

Moskovitz explained his reasons for supporting Clinton and his disdain for Trump in his September Medium post. ‘We cannot ignore the remarkable alignment between these two visions for society and the choices in this year’s election. The Republican Party, and Donald Trump in particular, is running on a zero-sum vision, stressing a false contest between their constituency and the rest of the world,’ wrote Moskovitz.

‘We believe their positions, especially on immigration, which purport to improve the lives of Americans, would in practice hurt citizens and noncitizens alike. In contrast, the Democratic Party, and Hillary Clinton in particular, is running on a vision of optimism, pragmatism, inclusiveness and mutual benefit.’


A vision of mutual benefit…

Moskovitz is not the only major Facebook employee to support Clinton during this election.  Chris Hughes and his husband Sean Eldridge held a fundraiser at their $5million Soho apartment for Clinton last year. Hughes is now worth an estimated $850 million and was the owner and publisher of The New Republic before selling the magazine this past February.

Half of the $20million Moskovitz and his wife, journalist Cari Tuna, are giving will go to the League of Conservation Voters and to a political action committee called For Our Future. The latter group is a get-out-the-vote effort in battleground states that is paid for primarily by labor unions and hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer (who funds the Black Lives Matter groups).

Moskovitz and Tuna also are giving directly to Clinton’s campaign and to party committees helping Senate and congressional Democrats.

Moskovitz became the youngest self-made billionaire in history when Facebook went public. He and Tuna, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, also recently joined forces to create the philanthropic organization Good Ventures. The couple live together near Silicon Valley.

‘As a nation, we need to figure out how to bring everyone with us, and we believe the Democratic platform currently is more aligned with ensuring that happens,’ wrote Moskovitz on Medium.

Hillary trying

Hillary trying to bring everyone with her…

‘In comparison, Donald Trump’s promises to this group are quite possibly a deliberate con, an attempt to rally energy and support without the ability or intention to deliver. His proposals are so implausible that the nation is forced to worry that his interest in the presidency might not even extend beyond winning a contest and promoting his personal brand.’

Politico reports that before this cycle, Moskovitz’s only recorded political donations had been $5,200 to the failed 2014 House bid of Eldridge in New York, who lost his race by 30 points.

Only Steyer has given more this year to Democrats, campaign finance records show. The Californian has put up almost $40 million so far, to promote environmental issues and help elect Clinton and other Democrats.  Steyer is worth far less than Moskovitz however, with a net worth of just $1.61billion.

Facebook investor Peter Thiel, who is also the founder of Paypal, has donated $1.25million to the campaign of Donald Trump.


Michael Moore calls all Donald Trump supporters ‘legal terrorists’

response to Michael Moore

From Daily Mail: Donald Trump supporters are furious at Michael Moore for branding them ‘legal terrorists’.

The filmmaker used the term in an interview with Rolling Stone published Friday, saying that Trump would ‘blow up the system’ and his voters would ‘participate in the detonation’.

Moore also compared Trump to a pedophile, saying voters had to protect America from the GOP nominee the way children should be protected from molesters.

His movie ‘Michael Moore In Trumpland’, which Moore has called his October surprise, came out earlier this week after just 11 days of development.

Moore, once a fervent Bernie Sanders supporter who has now endorsed Hillary Clinton, told the LA Times he hoped the film would convince ‘the depressed Hillary voter’ to cast a ballot on November 8.

‘Michael Moore In Trumpland’ is based on a one-man show that Moore performed earlier this month in Wilmington, Ohio. The show revolves mostly around Moore’s support of Clinton – but he denied having written it in the hopes of converting devoted Trump supporters.

‘I did not want the racists or the crazies in there or we would have never gotten the show done,’ he told Rolling Stone. Instead, Moore said, he wanted to strike a chord with voters who typically support Democrats but where thinking of casting their ballot for Trump.

‘I want them to think about the damage they could do by being a legal terrorist on November 8th,’ Moore said. Rolling Stone asked if the words ‘legal terrorist referred to any Trump voter or to anyone in particular. Moore replied: ‘Any.’

‘Legally, you have a right to vote on November 8th. You can go in there and even though you’re not necessarily in favor of Trump and you don’t like him that much and you know he’s a little crazy, you also know he’s going to blow up the system,’ Moore added.

‘The system that took your job and house away from you. You get to get back at the system now and blow it up and this is the only day you can do it legally.  He’s told everybody that’s what he’s going to do. He’s the outsider who is going to ride into town and blow up the old way.’

‘So you, as a voter, get to participate in the detonation. He’s going to get a lot of votes from people who actually just want to sit back and watch the thing blow up.

What's really about to blow up...

What’s really about to blow up…

Moore later called the GOP nominee a ‘sociopath’ and said Trump had a mental illness – to the point where Moore didn’t feel comfortable ‘picking on’ Trump anymore and wanted him to get help. 

‘At the same time, you have to protect the population from him like you do with a pedophile,’ Moore said. ‘A pedophile doesn’t need to be in prison; they’re sick. They have to be separated from us so they don’t hurt children. But you have to treat it that way.’

Furious Trump voters blasted Moore’s comments on Twitter. One called Moore a ‘pathetic thing’, another accused him of being ‘terrified’, and a third tweeted a story about Moore with the words ‘IDIOT ALERT’.

User Merle Patterson wondered: ‘So, Americans have #rightofchoice, unless it’s #Trump?’ Another Twitter user, Dan Foster, wrote: ‘like Michael Moore would know anything about patriotism or reality.’ Real estate broker Greg Bennett compared Moore to a ‘butt itch’, adding: ‘it’s there but you can’t scratch it, just annoying.’

Brunell Donald-Kyei, a Trump supporter and the vice-chair of the national diversity coalition for Trump, blasted Moore’s comments on Fox News, accusing ‘anyone that votes for Hillary Clinton’ of ‘aiding and abetting a felon’.


Women – anti-Trumpers – Are Boycotting Ivanka Trump’s Brand

And how many of these womyn boycotting Ivanka have supported Broaddrick, Jones or Wiley? Yeah, didn’t think so.


From Cosmopolitan Magazine: Lindsey Ledford, a 29-year-old student at the University of Maryland-University College, is a self-described “Maxxinista” who shops at her local College Park, Maryland, T.J. Maxx at least three times per week. But about a week ago, her favorite store abruptly lost her business: Ledford was checking out a black blouse with a stripe down the center when, suddenly, she felt like her throat was closing and she couldn’t breathe.

 “My first thought was, Grab them by the pussy. We can do anything we want. Don’t even ask,” Ledford told

The blouse was triggering traumatic flashbacks to physical abuse she’d suffered in the past, and to times she’d been grabbed or groped by men without her consent. “None of them ever asked how I felt, what I was thinking, or what I wanted. They didn’t wait,” she wrote in a flurry of tweets at T.J. Maxx after fleeing the store. “That is what ‘Trump’ means to me,” she told me: complete disregard for women and their bodies. “It doesn’t matter if Ivanka’s name is in front of it, or Donald’s.”


Speaking of disregard for women…

Ledford is now one of a passionate group of women joining forces to boycott both the Ivanka Trump fashion and accessories brand and, unless they drop Ivanka’s line from stores, the retailers who carry it. The list includes T.J. Maxx,, Zappos, Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, DSW, Macy’s, Marshall’s, and Saks Off Fifth. “As much as I love shopping at T.J. Maxx, I can’t stomach seeing that name front and center,” she said. “Supporting a brand — Trump — that condones sexual assault and makes excuses for it is wrong.” (Ledford also logged a complaint with a phone call to customer service; she said a rep politely listened and promised to pass along her feedback.)


Shannon Coulter on a mission against Ivanka

The boycott was hatched on Twitter by Shannon Coulter, CEO of a boutique marketing agency in San Francisco, on October 10, in the wake of Trump’s now-infamous Access Hollywood tape; since then, Coulter’s tweets about the boycott, including tweets aimed at the retailers who carry Ivanka Trump products, have earned an estimated 1 million impressions on Twitter, according to her analytics report.

For a long stretch of the campaign, “[women] were ready to give Ivanka a pass because she’s his daughter and it’s hard to be objective about your dad. But the Trump tape just sent people over the edge,” Coulter told me. “I think [women] took particular offense, as I did, to the fact that Ivanka tries to make feminism a part of her brand but is standing by, as an official campaign surrogate, a guy who is an alleged serial sexual assaulter of women. The disconnect was too big. And they were ready to speak up about it and flex their consumer power about it.”

I'm sure this daughter can be objective about her father

A father and daughter who the proggies always give a pass

Though Ivanka insisted this week at a Fortune Most Powerful Women event: “I am not a surrogate. I’m a daughter,” the lines between Ivanka and her father’s incendiary politics have been blurred beyond recognition for some former fans and customers. Ivanka and her eponymous line are “inextricably tied to a movement that denigrates women,” Amy Andelora, a 52-year-old high school teacher in Mesa, Arizona, told me.

Days after the tape’s release, Andelora tweeted a plea to Neiman Marcus, asking the retailer to remove Ivanka’s line. She is also boycotting her favorite store, Nordstrom, where she says she formerly spent “hundreds of dollars per month,” because, similar to Ledford, she felt triggered by a pair of Ivanka shoes.


“It’s a visceral response, when I see the name ‘Ivanka’ nestled inside a shoe,” she said. ”The man who assaulted me used almost exactly the method Donald Trump described in his conversation with Billy Bush. I can’t see a Trump-related label without remembering what happened to me three years ago in a house I couldn’t escape.

Though some customers are defecting, Ivanka Trump’s eponymous line — an estimated $100 million operation in the last fiscal year, according to a July report in Forbes — has thrived in spite of her father Donald Trump’s wildly controversial presidential campaign. (Trump has made damning comments about women, Mexican and Muslim immigrants, and Gold Star families, while Ivanka, an executive vice-president at the Trump Organization, has consistently defended him as a “feminist,” insisting she knows him to be different.) As a private company, the Ivanka Trump brand does not release sales or profit numbers. But an Ivanka Trump brand PR representative told that sales and revenue grew 37 percent over 2015.

“Over the past year many more women have discovered and become loyal to the brand, leading us to experience a significant year over year revenue growth,” said Abigail Klem, chief brand officer through the representative.

According to annual and quarterly reports by her licensing company GIII, sales at the Ivanka Trump brand grew $29.4 million over last year, and increased $11.8 million in the last six months. “Whether or not people are saying good things or bad things, her name is getting out there,” Madeline Hurley, a retail industry analyst at market research firm IBIS World, said. “She can’t really pay for the press that she’s getting.”

But for some, the fact that Ivanka’s business has appeared to profit from the exposure of the Trump campaign is all the more reason to boycott. “[Ivanka] is supporting one of the most offensive, sexist, racist, xenophobic human beings to ever run for president,” Ledford said. “She is making a buck off it.”

Though Ivanka said at this week’s Fortune event that she’s “always tried to maintain complete separation between [her brand] and the campaign,” Ledford and others point to what they feel is a notable example to the contrary: after introducing her father at the Republican National Convention (in a speech filled with traditionally Democratic policies like equal pay, paid leave and affordable childcare), Ivanka tweeted a link to buy the blush-pink shift she was wearing from her collection with the line: “Shop Ivanka’s look from her #RNC speech.”


Don’t you DARE inquire as to where to buy this dress…(at least it wasn’t blue!)

“Do I think it’s appropriate for her to tweet out a link to where you can buy the dress that she was wearing? No, definitely not,” said Dini von Mueffling, founder of an eponymous public relations and strategy agency in New York. “Instead of tweeting about her dress, I think the message that she should have put out there was how honored she was to be part of a moment in our nation’s history, and to be part of trying to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.”

Gloria Ratcliffe, once a faithful customer, threw out a pair of Ivanka Trump pumps after another of Ivanka’s high-profile campaign appearances — when she attended the second debate in support of her father, just days after the release of the now-infamous tape. Ratcliffe also decided against buying bridesmaids dresses for her spring wedding from Nordstrom, as well as shoes for the wedding party from DSW, because both carry the Ivanka Trump brand.

Some anti-hate attire for the wedding, perhaps?

Some anti-hate attire for Ratcliffe’s wedding, perhaps?

“My wedding is a day of love. I’m not going to wear clothes that represent hate,” Ratcliffe said. “[Trump] doesn’t respect women at all, and I’m not giving my money to people who are supporting him, because it’s going to inevitably end up in his pocket.” (Ivanka’s line is a sub-brand of the Trump Organization).

So far, none of the retailers who carry the Ivanka Trump brand have dropped the line in response to the boycott. reached out to 12 retailers; only two replied. A representative for Nordstrom said: “We have received some feedback from customers, though we don’t currently have plans to stop offering this brand.” (When asked about the nature of that feedback, the representative didn’t answer). Zappos declined to comment.

But Coulter and the women boycotting Ivanka’s brand aren’t giving up. Ledford, for instance, is still steering clear of T.J. Maxx: In addition to voting for Hillary Clinton and donating to her campaign, Ledford feels the boycott is another way of taking concrete political action. It’s “something I can do to say ‘enough is enough,’” she says. “I can not give my money to them.”

Coulter continues tweeting, every day, multiple times per day, and calling retailer customer service lines to complain about the Ivanka brand. She says she has received backlash for the boycott on Twitter — some men, in particular, argue that Ivanka shouldn’t be held accountable because they believe she’s being manipulated by PR people or by her father.

“I don’t think that’s true,” Coulter said. “She’s the head of an international, $100 million dollar a year brand. She’s sophisticated. I think she’s smarter than Donald Trump. Part of why I started the boycott is because I respect her as a businesswoman. We should hold her to a higher standard.

And just how many liberal women were triggered by this?

Exit question: How many liberal women were triggered by this fine example of a “higher standard?”


Trump’s Gettysburg Address: what he will do in first 100 days

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, Donald Trump chose Gettysburg, PA — a site full of historic and political meaning to Americans who actually know about this country’s history — to deliver arguably his most important speech in his quest for the presidency.

In his speech, Trump outlined an 8-point plan for his first 100 days in office should he be elected President 15 days from now, on November 8.

In a follow-up email this morning, Trump summarized his speech as follows:

As soon as I enter the White House on January 20, 2017, I will begin implementing my 8-Point Plan for the First 100 Days of the Trump Administration, and here’s what we’ll do:

  1. On Day One, we will roll out our plan to BUILD THE WALL, send criminal illegal immigrants home, and finally end the open borders nightmare.
  2. Begin renegotiating ALL unfair trade deals like NAFTA which have undercut American employment and exported our prosperity.
  3. CANCEL all executive orders, bureaucratic rules, and crippling regulations that send American jobs overseas.
  4. Work with Congress to REPEAL and replace the disastrous ObamaCare legislation that is ruining American healthcare.
  5. Lift the radical Obama regulations on America’s energy industry to END our dependence on foreign sources and create new jobs here at home.
  6. Propose, pass, and sign into law a massive TAX CUT for all working Americans and unleash the jobs-creating power of our small businesses.
  7. NOMINATE Supreme Court Justices who will uphold the Founders’ Constitution and not legislate the liberal agenda from the bench, and…
  8. IMPOSE strict new ethics rules to restore the integrity of the Office of the Secretary of State.

Accurately accusing the corporate media of “trying desperately to suppress my vote and the voice of the American people,” Trump also promised he will stop the MSM from abusing their power, beginning with thwarting the merger of AT&T and Time Warner — a media empire that already owns CNN and HBO. On Saturday, AT&T Inc. officially announced its purchase of Time Warner Inc.

Trump also said that if he were President, he would not have approved the acquisition of NBC Universal by Comcast Corp in 2013 because by concentrating even more power in media giants who control news and information, such mergers “destroy democracy” and “poison the mind of the American voter.”

Hillary Clinton will do none of that because, like Wall Street, the news media are big donors to Hillary’s corrupt Clinton Foundation.

Here’s Trump’s Gettysburg speech:

Black Trump supporters: He’s not a racist

Watch two black Americans tell reporters Donald Trump is not a racist.

Both men are wise to the MSM’s lies.

Beginning at the 0: 16 mark:

Black man to CNN reporter: “I’m down here to make sure that I express my support for Mr. Donald Trump, and I’m fighting back against people like Black Lives Matter with CNN support, along with the Hillary Clinton Foundation and the Bill Clinton Foundation — the traitors to this country.”

CNN reporter: “What do you think about the fact that white supremacists support Trump?”

Black man: “It doesn’t matter. That’s their right to free speech. I’m sick of this racist divide, and CNN is always doing that, always divide and conquer. People have the right to choose whatever they want. What the hell that’s got to do with Donald Trump? He’s not a racist! I’m sick of that. It’s a scam, and I know it’s not going to get on CNN. We’re sick of you media.”

Beginning at the 0:08 mark:

Reporter asks black man named Ronnie Simpson: “So why are you out here today?”

Ronnie: “You know, I am a Trump supporter. I don’t know if I would vote for him, but I have to support what he’s standing for because I’ve been seeing all this opposition coming from Bernie, Hillary supporters and sitting there talking about ‘We’re liberal, we just want peace’. Yet they throw eggs at you and punch you in the mouth because they’re peaceful and loving.

I saw what went down in Southern California. It got to me. I had to actually come out here and actually talk about what’s going on. [Note: Ronnie was referring to a man who was assaulted by a mob in El Cajon, California, for wearing a Trump “Make America Great Again” cap.]

These people don’t want to talk to you, that’s the problem. They sit there and say they don’t have double standards and they’re not hypocritical. They’ll come up to you and just yell and scream like you’re just nobody: ‘We hate you, you’re racist, you’re misogynist, you’re homophobic.’ I have black friends, I have white friends, I have Mexican friends, and supposedly I’m a racist! Wow, that’s crazy.

My family is black, we’re all mixed, okay. So it has nothing to do with race. I think Trump is really just trying to get the sovereignty back in America when he’s talking about the borders, like he’s not saying deport all Muslims, deport all Mexicans. He’s talking about the drug pushers, he’s talking about the criminals, he’s talking about them. He’s not talking about good people that are going to work every day and paying their bills. There’s just too many of these misconceptions by the hype of the mainstream media, and people just kind of buy into it because of the herd mentality.”

Bravo, my brother in the red t-shirt!


Bravo, my brother, Ronnie Simpson!



Clinton lectured State Department employees on their ‘special duty’ to maintain cyber security in an internal video

This is RICH – both that Hillary had the audacity to proclaim this and that CBS News actually reported it.

Clinton: Do as I say, not as I do

Clinton: Do as I say, not as I do

From Daily Mail: It’s a lecture she delivered, but would have been better off attending. Hillary Clinton delivered a stern warning about the duty to protect against cyber threats, an awkward 2010 government video obtained by CBS News reveals.

The then-secretary of state cut a video warning her subordinates about the ‘special duty’ to stay on guard. ‘I think this is a responsibility we all share as Americans, but as State Department employees we have a special duty to guard ourselves and our sensitive information,’ Clinton said in the video released Friday.

In grainy video presumably sent internally throughout the world, Clinton warned: ‘Potential hackers use all kinds of strategies to exploit cyber vulnerabilities and to penetrate the department’s systems.’

‘They may try to gain information by posing as someone we trust, or by using social media sites to spread viruses and other malicious code,’ she continues.

‘The bureau of diplomatic security and IT staff work around the clock to defend us against cyber attacks, but the real key to cyber security rests with you. Complying with department computing policies and being alert to potential threats will help protect all of us.

Clinton then urges staff to learn more about cyber security awareness by logging online to an internal website and subscribing to their ‘cyber security awareness newsletter.’

‘Together we can do our part to improve the security of the State Department and of our nation,’ she adds.

Since then, the government, including the State Department and the White House, has been subjected to multiple hacking threats. But so too has Hillary Clinton and her campaign, which has been subjected to the release of 23,000 emails to date hacked from the gmail account of campaign chair John Podesta.
