desearas

Contact Netflix here or on Twitter.

This is the same media company that just signed a deal with Barack and Michelle Obama.

From Fox News:  Netflix has come under fire for a movie streaming on their site that some viewers say contains a scene that is child pornography.

The opening scene of the Argentinian film “Desiredepicts two young girls under the age of 10 playing around with pillows. The scene takes a sexual turn involving one of the girls.

The news site PJ Media said it reported the film to the FBI and Department of Justice for child pornography. The FBI told Fox News, “Per DOJ policy, the FBI neither confirms nor denies the existence of an investigation.”

The film remains on Netflix’s site and a rep for the streaming service did not return Fox News’ request for comment. It was not immediately clear what Netflix’s vetting policy is for films.

Angry viewers took to Twitter to share their disgust and are calling on Netflix to remove the film and start an investigation.

“@Netflix WHY ARE YOU OFFERING KIDDIE PORN??? #Desire @FBI @TheJusticeDept PLEASE investigate,” one user tweeted.

Another wrote, “Watch the first few minutes of the movie Desire from Netflix promotion of pedophilia absolutely disgusting!! Parents should be arrested for this scene alone!!”

@netflix You need to remove the film Desire from your service IMMEDIATELY. You are MAKING AVAILABLE CHILD PORN by leaving this film up. I am DISGUSTED and will be canceling my service if this is not fixed ASAP. What is wrong with you?!”

According to Section 2256 of Title 18 of the United States Code, child pornography is “any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a minor (someone under 18 years of age).”

Michelle Obama: “I’d never stood out because of the color of my skin”

Michelle Obama…delivering inspiring words

The perpetual victimhood shtick never gets old for some people.

From Daily Mail: Many former students remember having to fend off college jitters at the start of their education—and among them is none other than Michelle Obama, who reminisced about her ‘scary’ experience at Princeton University in a new Instagram post.

The former first lady, 54, shared a photo of herself as a young student on Tuesday, explaining it was taken in the early 1980s at the Ivy League institution. Michelle enrolled in 1981 at the age of 17 before graduating cum laude in 1985 with a B.A. in Sociology.

She can be seen in the image posing on campus in a denim jacket and red sweater, carrying a bag on her left shoulder. While Michelle smiles confidently at the camera in the snap, going to college was a frightening experience for her, as she explained in her post.

‘This is me at Princeton in the early 1980s,’ she wrote next to the photo. ‘I know that being a first-generation college student can be scary, because it was scary for me.’

Michelle, the daughter of the late Fraser Robinson, a water purification worker, and Marian Robinson, a former bank secretary, enrolled at Princeton following in the footsteps of her brother, a graduate of the class of 1983. Neither of their parents attended college.

‘I was black and from a working-class neighborhood in Chicago, while Princeton’s student body was generally white and well-to-do,’ Michelle added in her Instagram post.

‘I’d never stood out in a crowd or a classroom because of the color of my skin before.  

‘But I found close friends and a mentor who gave me the confidence to be myself. Going to college is hard work, but every day I meet people whose lives have been profoundly changed by education, just as mine was.’

The former first lady, who congratulated the class of 2018 in her message, shared her tips with current students who might also be facing difficulties or feel intimidated, adding: ‘My advice to students is to be brave and stay with it.’

Michelle has been sharing a series of throwback photos on her Instagram account ahead of the release of her memoir, Becoming, which is to be released in November.

On Wednesday, she posted a picture of herself and her husband Barack, 56, on their wedding day in October 1992. She can be seen sitting on a chair during their reception, laughing while Barack removes her garter belt as per tradition.

‘You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold,’ she wrote in the caption.

‘Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night. Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.’

On Tuesday, the former first lady posted a photo of herself as a girl with her parents, sharing tributes to each of them. ‘My father, Fraser, taught me to work hard, laugh often, and keep my word,’ she wrote.

‘My mother, Marian, showed me how to think for myself and to use my voice. Together, in our cramped apartment on the South Side of Chicago, my family helped me see the value in our story, in my story, and in the larger story of our country.’

Michelle has opened up in the past about her time as a student, and earlier this month further reminisced on the ‘struggle’ she experience at the start of her undergraduate career at a public event in Philadelphia.

She took to the stage during College Signing Day, which honors Philadelphia students for their pursuit of a college education or career in the military. The event stems from her Reach Higher initiative, which Michelle launched four years ago as first lady in support of education nationwide. 

The Princeton and Harvard Law School graduate told the crowd of 7,000 students of her own doubts back when she started her education—and coached them on how to overcome their own insecurities.

Michelle, whose daughter Malia, 19, is currently a freshman at Harvard University, started by assuring the students that it is ‘perfectly normal’ for them to be scared at the prospect of starting college, because she ‘certainly’ was.

‘But here’s the advice that I have for you. You’re going to get to college and you’re going to struggle sometimes because we all struggle,’ she said during the event.

When Barack and I set foot in the White House, it was a struggle. There were a lot of people who told us that we weren’t supposed to be in the White House, that we couldn’t handle the pressure, that we weren’t ready. So I’m telling you: they will doubt you today and they will doubt you for the rest of your life. But you will have some struggle, and that’s OK.

Obamas ink producing deal with Netflix

netflix

Another reason I will never subscribe to Netflix.

From Hollywood Reporter: President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are officially getting into business with Netflix.

The Obamas have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series with the streaming giant, Netflix announced on Monday. The pair will produce a diverse mix of content, including the potential for scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features under their Higher Ground Productions banner.

“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” said President Obama in a statement. “That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

The former first lady added in her own statement: “Barack and I have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire us, to make us think differently about the world around us, and to help us open our minds and hearts to others. Netflix’s unparalleled service is a natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share, and we look forward to starting this exciting new partnership.”

The unprecedented deal is Obama’s first big move after exiting the White House in 2017. While previous former presidents have limited their post-White House pacts to book deals, the deal is the latest talent feat for Netflix as the streamer continues to expand its unscripted and informational original programming. Netflix’s recent deal with mega-producer Ryan Murphy is said to be worth as much as $300 million.

The Obamas also have a $65 million deal with Penguin Random House to publish individual books.

Barack and Michelle Obama are among the world’s most respected and highly recognized public figures and are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement. “We are incredibly proud they have chosen to make Netflix the home for their formidable storytelling abilities.”

Michelle Obama still questioning why women voted for President Trump in 2016

trump won

From Fox News: Former first lady Michelle Obama said Saturday that she was “concerned about us as women and how we think” in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Obama was the keynote speaker at the United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles, where she was joined on stage by “Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross.

“When the most qualified person running was a woman, and look what we did instead, I mean that says something about where we are,” said Obama in reference to the election, in which 41 percent of all women — and 52 percent of white women — pulled the lever for Trump.

“If we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men,” Obama added, “if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president … then we have to have those conversations with ourselves as women.”

Since leaving the White House last year, Obama has emphatically denied that she will run for elected office and did so again on Saturday.

“Change starts close to home. So looking for the next person to run … that’s been our distraction,” she said. “We’re just going to wait for the next person to save us.”

“All of us here in the room are the answer to our own problems,” Obama added. “It is not finding the one right person that we think can save us from ourselves. It’s us.”

Delusion: Michelle Obama declares herself America’s ‘forever First Lady’

Michelle O is a man

Michelle Obama is a legend in his own mind.

Mooch spoke at a college signing event at Temple University in Philadelphia today, and declared himself America’s “forever First Lady”:

“We have such high hopes for you. See, I am not one of those doubters. I know that you have everything it takes to succeed. I know you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever First Lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to.”

The audience erupted into applause.

Hey, America’s Forever First Lady!

Such a diva: Libtard Beyoncé asks press not to publish unflattering photos

If you put yourself in the public forum then you are open to criticism. Especially when you so freely choose to criticize others, such as the ones who are paid to protect you.

From NY Post: Beyoncé doesn’t trust Instagram.

Page Six has learned that the superstar’s publicist sent out an e-mail to news outlets Friday asking them not to publish fans’ pictures of her hotly anticipated performance at Coachella — and to stick with the approved shots of Saturday’s show instead.

It appears to be an attempt to prevent a replay of the situation after her 2013 Super Bowl halftime show, when her team famously e-mailed BuzzFeedasking the Web site to take down a series of “unflattering photos” from a gallery of her showstopping performance.

Beyoncé’s rep didn’t get back to us.

Obama’s gay portrait artist distorts biblical Judith as a black woman decapitating white people

Yesterday, February 12, 2018, greeted by much media fawning, the official portraits of Barack and Michelle “Big Mike” Obama were unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

The National Portrait Gallery, founded in 1962, is a historic art museum in Washington, D.C., and a part of the federal government-funded Smithsonian Institution.

The artists who painted Barack’s and Michelle’s portraits are, respectively, Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, who are the first black painters to receive a presidential portrait commission from the museum. (NPR)

Aside from the fact that Wiley painted Barack with bizarrely elongated fingers, and Sherald’s portrait doesn’t even look like Michelle Obama, it is noteworthy that Obama chose Kehinde Wiley to paint his portrait — a man so consumed with hatred of whites that he distorts history by depicting white historical figures as black, and the biblical Judith as decapitating a white woman instead of an Assyrian general.

Wikipedia describes Kehinde Wiley, 41, as an openly homosexual, New York City-based portrait painter who is known for his highly naturalistic paintings of African-Americans. In 2007, the Columbus Museum of Art hosted an exhibition of Wiley’s work, describing his work gushingly:

“Wiley has gained recent acclaim for his heroic portraits which address the image and status of young African-American men in contemporary culture.”

Artsy.net describes Wiley as an artist who selects “works from old masters like Peter Paul Rubens or Jacques-Louis David” and “replaces the historical figures with handsome young black men.” An example is Wiley’s painting of Napoleon as a black man, which is displayed in the Brooklyn Museum.

In one painting, supposedly of the Old Testament account of Judith, a Hebrew woman, seducing and beheading an Assyrian general, Kehinde Wiley portrayed Judith as a black woman holding the severed head of a blonde-haired white woman.

This is the artist whose works are praised by a former President of the United States, Barack Obama, as “challenging our conventional views of power and privilege,” and whom the taxpayer-funded National Portrait Gallery commissioned and extols (NPR):

“Wiley typically portrays people of color posing as famous figures in Western art. Through this practice, he challenges the visual rhetoric of power that is dominated by elite white men.”
