Jeffrey Katzenberg on Trump: “Worst nightmare I could ever imagine”

Obama Discusses Economy At DreamWorks Animation Facility In California

Katzenberg and his hero Obama

Good, good…let the butthurt flow!

From Hollywood Reporter: Last fall during a speech at the amfAR Gala Los Angeles, just a handful of days before the presidential election, Jeffrey Katzenberg denounced the soon-to-be-elected Donald Trump as a demagogue. “Day after day, we are being subjected to the hateful speech of a man who is actually trying to turn the clock back,” he said at the time. “He’s trying to take us back to darkness. We must not let this happen.”

Many would argue that dark times are here in the wake of deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., as Trump went back on condemning white supremacists and neo-Nazis and instead insisted there was “blame on both sides,” referring to what he called “alt-left” protesters, many of whom showed up to speak out against hate speech in favor of civil and human rights. (Nice bias there Hollywood Reporter.)

When The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Katzenberg on Thursday night, just as he was heading into MPTF’s NextGen Summer Party on a NeueHouse rooftop in Hollywood, the staunch Democratic supporter and longtime fundraiser almost seemed at a loss for how to respond to Trump’s controversial week. “Mortified is the only word I can think of,” Katzenberg told THR. “It is beyond comprehension.”

He continued, adding that “the worst nightmare that I could ever imagine doesn’t come close to this [reality].”

So now what? Just how will Katzenberg be rallying his influential Rolodex? Though he wouldn’t give specifics, Katzenberg hinted that he’s taking action, urging others to do the same. “People have to stand up,” he said. “Every voice matters. Now is when it matters most.”

Antifa website calls for violence against Trump supporters

Shocker, not.

This was posted June 21st on YouTube by Tea Partiest. From their video posting:

A disturbing Antifa website is calling for physical violence against supporters of President Donald Trump and capitalists. The site “It’s Going Down,” which has become a resource for self-described “anti-fascist” activists, encourages violence against anyone it labels a “fascist.” A poster published on the site in April shows a man in a Make America Great Again hat being cornered by a bayonet, with a silhouette of a Nazi in the background. “It’s Going Down” justifies violence as not only good but necessary to the survival of minorities and the disenfranchised. A library of downloadable publications on the website offers long-form articles that call for “insurrectionary mass resistance and refusal” and militant tactics against employers and law enforcement.”

Stay vigilant.

Boston ‘Free Speech’ Rally: Leftists clash with riot police

40,000 of “counter-protester” Leftists overwhelmed and disrupted the Saturday (August 19) peaceful “Free Speech” rally in Boston, MA, where actual demonstrators for free speech numbered a few dozens.

Here’s one of the Leftists:

Here’s an Antifa wearing a black hood and carrying an axe, making evident his intentions:

At 1:30 pm, Boston Police Department (BPD) deemed the free speech rally to be “officially over” half an hour ahead of its official end time, but thousands of “counterprotesters” rioters continued to spread out in the city throughout the afternoon, with some  confronting officers and civilians.

Two hours after BPD declared the free speech rally officially over, BPD tweeted that the police “is asking individuals to refrain from throwing urine, bottles and other harmful projectiles at our officers”, followed by another tweet that “rocks [are] being thrown at officers”.

Fox News reports that “counter-protesters,” i.e., the Left, are clashing with riot police:

A white woman carrying a large American flag was assaulted by a Leftist who yanked the flag from her hands, then dragged her on the ground.

Hooded and masked Antifa thugs assault a white man, knocking him to the ground:

At the end of the day, as reported by ABC News:

  • Police arrested 33 people, mostly from disorderly conduct and a few assaults on police officers.
  • There were a few injuries, the number unspecified.
  • BPD Commissioner William Evans said police stopped three people with ballistic vests and a gun and got “those three out of here and confiscate the vests.”

Abe Lincoln statue torched in Chiraq

abe lincoln

Open season on destroying anything related to America’s history.

From NBC Chicago: An Abraham Lincoln was damaged and burned in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood late Wednesday, Ald. Ray Lopez said.

The statue was found burned near 69th Street and Wolcott, authorities said.

“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism,” Lopez wrote on Facebook along with an image of the charred structure. He encouraged anyone who has information on what happened to contact police or his office “immediately.”

Police did not immediately have information on what happened.

The statue, a bust of Lincoln, was erected by Phil Bloomquist on Aug. 31, 1926.

It is one of many that have been vandalized across the country in wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and the president’s comments that followed.

On Tuesday, someone vandalized the Lincoln Memorial, writing “F— law” in red spray paint on a pillar at the monument. 

Cities and states accelerated their plans to remove Confederate monuments from public property Tuesday as the violence over a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville moved leaders across the country to plan to wipe away much of the remaining Old South imagery.

The changes were publicized as President Donald Trump defended Confederate statues in wide-ranging remarks.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down,” Trump said during a visit to Trump Tower in New York. “I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?

Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to call out a Republican senator who had criticized his equivocal remarks on bigotry and hatred, and to lament at “the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart” by removing “beautiful statues and monuments” honoring Confederate leaders.

Missouri demorat state senator says she hopes Trump is assassinated

nadal facebook post

Of course her comment wasn’t her fault…it was Trump’s!

From Fox News: A Democratic state senator in Missouri is facing resignation calls for posting on Facebook Thursday that she hopes President Trump is assassinated.

“I hope Trump is assassinated!” state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal wrote.

Chappelle-Nadal eventually deleted the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter.

In interviews with local outlets, Chapelle-Nadal said she regretted her post but not her anger at the president. She blamed her outburst on the president’s response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville.

“I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that,” Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. “But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.”

The Secret Service told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch it is investigating Chapelle-Nadal’s post.

Meanwhile, top Missouri Democrats – including Sen. Claire McCaskill and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party – are calling on Chapelle-Nadal to resign. “I condemn it,” McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch. “It’s outrageous. And she should resign.”

Missouri Party Chair Stephen Webber called Chappelle-Nadal’s comments “indefensible.”

“I believe she should resign,” Webber said.

But Chappelle-Nadal told KMOX Radio she won’t quit. “There is no way in hell that I’m resigning,” she said.

A Prayer for President Trump

Please bow your heads, close your eyes, and say this prayer for President Trump and for America:

Heavenly Father,

Your servant, our President Donald J. Trump, is under attack like we’ve never seen before.

Lord, today I come before you to ask that the armies of Heaven are dispatched to do battle against the demons who are trying to destroy your servant, our President Donald J. Trump.

Lord, it says in Your word that where two or three are gathered in Your name and pray according to Your will, it will be done. And today I am joined by thousands who are praying this prayer. We ask that You pour out Your Spirit upon this nation and heal this land so that our president can do the work that we asked him to do.

Lord, he is under attack at every single turn — the Russian investigation, accusations of racism . . . . But we know that You called him forward for such a time as this. He not a perfect man, none of us are. We’re all sinners. I’m a sinner. But it is through Your grace and mercy and work on the cross that gives us salvation from our carnal nature.

Lord, I’m calling down the blood of Jesus to cover our president and all who are fighting with him. No weapon formed against him shall prosper. The fiery darts of the enemy will crumble at his feet.

Lord, you know this, that those who would work to destroy this nation — the globalists, the socialists, the communists, and the liberals — they have mounted a force to take him down, so that Satan’s agenda for this country and the world would be complete.

Lord, America is the last beacon of hope in the world. The Devil wants to destroy it and bring it under his reign, subject to the global order, so that his son, the AntiChrist, may rise up and reveal himself and enslave the world.

Lord, I know that it is written that these days will arrive and there’s nothing we can do to prevent the written word of Your prophecies. But Lord, we ask that You extend the grace period so that more souls may be won — won for Heaven before the day of judgment arrives.

Lord, our hearts cry out in Your name. Please hear our prayer and strike down our foes, so that love will prevail again in this land. Strike down the agents of Satan who have corrupted the hearts of our enemy. Soften them, Lord. Soften their hearts and open their eyes to Your plan for this nation, that our president, Donald J. Trump, is working to fulfill.

Lord, I pray this in Your name. I pray this in the name of Yeshua the Messiah who reigns forever and ever.

Amen.

Send this prayer to at least three people you know.

Let’s get a massive prayer chain going to fight this relentless assault on our President Trump.

May God bless you, and may God have mercy on the United States of America.

Huffington Post goes racist on resignation of Steve Bannon: ‘Goy, Bye!’

The shocking news came this morning that Steve Bannon, President Trump’s White House Chief Strategist and former CEO of Breitbart credited with helping Trump win the 2016 election, had resigned two weeks ago, on August 7.

But the news is awash in ambiguity.

The New York Times reports:

President Trump has told senior aides that he has decided to remove Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled White House chief strategist who helped Mr. Trump win the 2016 election, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion.

The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time.

Meanwhile, this is how Huffington Post reacts to Bannon’s resignation:

Goy (plural “goyim”) is the Hebrew pejorative word for a non-Jew.

Why HuffPost would make an issue about Bannon’s ethnicity is baffling because under CEO Bannon, Breitbart News has always been pro Israel.

HuffPost‘s racist “Goy, Bye!” headline was met with outrage from even anti-Trumpers:

  • Keith Olbermann tweeted, “WTF?”
  • New York Post‘s Jewish contributor Seth Mandel tweeted: “Someone at HuffPo thought this headline was a good idea.”

So HuffPost quickly changed the headline. Alas, the Left being what they are, the new headline “White Flight” is no less racist and race-baiting as the previous “Goy, Bye!”. (Breitbart)

UPDATE:

As of this afternoon (Friday, Aug. 18), Bannon has returned to Breitbart News as its Executive Chairman.

Bannon told author Joshua Green:

“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.”

According to the Gateway Pundit:

Breitbart News is plotting to go ‘thermonuclear’ against ‘globalists’ inside the Trump administration. Bannon may also be personally gearing up to take on the Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge.

According to former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, Bannon believes Drudge ‘accelerated’ his White House exit driven by continuous negative coverage.

Speaking of Drudge Report, I’ve been perturbed by Matt Drudge’s negative links on Trump and, frankly, no longer read Drudge Report or use it as a news source. I suggest that conservatives do the same.

H/t FOTM‘s DCG.
