Entertainers and professors who pimp for Obama

The following is by no means an exhaustive list.

For other pro-Obama “celebrities,” go to FOTM’s “Leftwing Pathology” page and look for the post links colored brown!

Entertainers who pimp for Obama:

1. Singer Bruce Springsteen ($200 million net worth), who vowed earlier this year not to actively campaign for Obama, reversed course and performed for Captain Hope and Change in Ohio. See DCG’s post, HERE.

2. Actor Jack Black ($40 million net worth) is calling Mitt Romney a “master flip-flopper”while ignoring Obama’s litany of flips and flops. This is the same Jack Black who, at the MTV 2009 Video Music Awards, prayed to the “Dear Dark Lord Satan” to “grant tonight’s nominees with continued success in the music industry” (see pic below).

3. Rapper Jay-Z ($475 million net worth), who admitted he backs Obama because he’s black, cut a campaign video saying Obama inspired people to take a stand in politics (whatever that means).

4. Actresses Eva Longoria ($35 million net worth), Scarlett Johansson ($35 million net worth) and Kerry Washington ($3 million net worth) spoke at the Democratic National Convention and are on a video roasting the Romney/Ryan ticket for its alleged anti-women stances (translation: anti women’s “right” to kill the unborn).

5. Teen slut Miley Cyrus ($120 million net worth), who gave her actor boyfriend Liam Hemsworth a penis birthday cake (see pic below), formally endorsed Obama yesterday.

6. Actress-singer Barbra Streisand ($340 million net worth), who has performed at fundraisers for Obama, emailed Democrats asking for cash, calling a potential GOP takeover “a disaster for America.” When Romney is elected President, I hope she’ll actually carry out her promise of moving to France this time.

Professors who pimp for Obama:

1. Alan Abramowitz, a political science professor at Emory University who is billed as a “widely known expert on national politics,” contributed $250 to Obama on two separate occasions in 2008. This month, Abramowitz told Bloomberg News that the recent drop in the nation’s unemployment rate is “good news for Obama” and blunts Romney’s political momentum. Many news organizations have published Abramowitz’s analyses, including the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, National Journal and The Hill.

2. Garrison Nelson, a professor at the University of Vermont, donated $250 to Obama earlier this year. Nelson was quoted in June 2011 about Obama’s emphasis on his support for the auto industry bailout: “This is to hit Romney where he lives.” Four years ago, he commented on Obama’s favorable poll numbers in Vermont against then-Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.): “It’s the Obama phenomenon. Obama has really taken hold here. We’re caught in the wave of support he’s getting.”

3. Peter Ricchiuti, professor of finance at Tulane University donated $3,000 to Obama in 2012 and $1,000 in 2008. He has also given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), the Democratic National Committee and Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.). In 2011, he told ABC News that Obama’s job creation initiatives were “all good ideas.” Ricchiuti told the Mississippi Daily Journal in January 2009 that fears that the incoming Obama administration would usher in a new socialist state were unfounded. “I think he’s a free-market guy,” Ricchiuti said at the time.

4. Timothy Jost, a professor at Washington and Lee University, has given thousands of dollars to Obama and Democratic campaign committees. Identified in news articles as “an expert on healthcare” and a supporter of Obamacare, Jost is critical of Romney’s plan to repeal Obamacare, telling the Boston Globe last year that it is “unconstitutional.”

5. Robert Axelrod, political science professor at the University of Michigan, donated to Obama in 2008 and 2011. In a 2010 Washington Post article titled, “Obama Steps Up Confrontation,” Axelrod says confrontation with the opposing party is initially necessary in order to ultimately strike a bipartisan deal. The article reported that he is not related to David Axelrod, who is a senior adviser to Obama.

6. David Yellen, dean and professor of law at Loyola University in Chicago, donated to Obama in 2008 and 2011. In 2004, he gave to both Howard Dean and Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). Yellen told The Washington Times in 2010 that the scandal involving former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) was not a significant problem (“not a big deal”) for the White House. Yellen said his donation does not affect his objectivity.

Jason Mattera and the Book Hollywood Elites Don’t Want You to Read

Hollywood Hypocrites – NY Times Best Seller

This is sort of a book report on something I have not read…. but after watching the 29 year old author’s highly entertaining 55 minute presentation to large group of high school students on BookTV, I’m dying to get my hands on a copy of “Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers.

Using the Look Inside feature on Amazon.com, each chapter is documented with numerous URLs to back up his charges against such luminaries as Ariana Huffington, Harrison Ford, Barbara Streisand, Leonardo Di Caprio, Matt Damon…. and that’s just for starters!  Here’s a very brief montage of his hilarious  BookTV presentation.  Enjoy!

Top 10 Most Obnoxious Hollywood Libs

Human Events has an article today on the “Top 10 Most Obnoxious Hollywood Liberals“:

1.  Sean Penn:  The two-time Academy Award winner has traveled the world to denounce the country that made him rich and famous.  He has been used as a propaganda tool by the Iranian regime, met with Cuban President Raul Castro, and went to Iraq as an antiwar activist.  Penn is so close to Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez that the tyrant, in one of his televised speeches, read an open letter Penn wrote to Bush, condemning the Iraq War, calling for the President’s impeachment and saying that Bush, Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice were “villainously and criminally obscene people.”

2.  Michael Moore:  The portly director made hundreds of millions of dollars off of the highly fictional Fahrenheit 9/11, a “documentary” that alleged close links between the Bush clan and Osama bin Laden’s family.  Recently he said that private wealth is a “national resource” that belongs to all the people and called for jailing the rich.  Then he called bin Laden’s death an “execution.”  For a man who made a fortune exploiting 9/11, denouncing wealth, and the action against the al-Qaeda leader, is beyond disingenuous.

3.  Danny Glover:  Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover was a campus radical as a student at San Francisco State University and has been an advocate for left-wing causes ever since.  He chums around with the likes of Hugo Chavez, is a union rabble-rouser and said the Bush administration was composed of “liars and murderers.”  After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Glover was quick to blame the tragedy on global warming.

4.  Barbra Streisand:  From her appearance on President Nixon’s “enemies list” to her singing performance at a fund-raising gala for Barack Obama, Barbra Streisand has a long history of political involvement.  Most notable is her bankrolling of left-wing causes, with the Streisand Foundation steering millions to groups promoting every liberal fantasy.  Among her favorite causes are women’s issues, nuclear disarmament and the environment.  She even donated $1 million to the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation to help solve global warming.

73-year-old botoxed, breast-implanted, rib-removed, face-lifted Fonda at Cannes this week. Some communist she is!

5.  Jane Fonda:  “Hanoi Jane” deserves a lifetime achievement award for left-wing activism.  Between her anti-American radio broadcasts from North Vietnam and appearing at anti-Iraq War rallies, Fonda demonstrated against Israel’s “occupation” of the West Bank and supported feminist causes, speaking out against patriarchy.  This is someone who once said, “I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees, that we would someday become Communists.”

6.  Alec Baldwin:  “30 Rock” star Alec Baldwin is an animal-rights advocate, a strong supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and serves on the board of the left-wing People for the American Way.  During the Clinton impeachment, Baldwin publicly fantasized about murdering Rep. Henry Hyde and his family.  If he had only followed through on his threat to leave the country when Bush was reelected.

7.  Susan Sarandon:  From supporting the Nicaraguan Sandinistas in the 1980s to speaking at a pro-union rally in Wisconsin this year, film star Susan Sarandon is still plugging progressive positions, although no longer with her former longtime companion and political fellow traveler Tim Robbins.  She was an anti-Iraq War activist, protesting the Bush administration with the likes of Jane Fonda and Cindy Sheehan, and is a major donor to the feminist group EMILY’s List.

8.  Janeane Garofalo:  This B-list actress and Air America refugee has taken left-wing hate speech to a new level with her rhetorical blasts aimed at the Tea Party.  Here is a sample of her rants:  “It’s about hating a black man in the White House.  That is racism straight up.  This is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks,” and, “The functionally retarded adults, the racists—with their cries of, ‘I want my country back.’  What they’re really saying is, ‘I want my white guy back.’ ”

9.  Joy Behar:  While on “The View,” Joy Behar said there are ways to get information from terrorists other than tough interrogation methods such as waterboarding.  “There are other ways of getting information out of people … pay them off,” Behar said, while suggesting offering a terrorist a “$6 million book deal.”  This is the same brainiac who once said, “It is really not easy to make fun of the Obamas, because they’re kind of really perfect, aren’t they?”

10.  The Sheens:  This father/son duo deserves a mention.  Martin Sheen played the liberal’s dream President in “West Wing,” and has embraced every left-wing cause, from antiwar and farm-worker activism to protecting seals by attacking fur traders.  His son, Charlie Sheen, was an outspoken Truther, alleging that 9/11 was an inside job, before he became a traveling carnival act with his Tiger Blood and “Torpedo of Truth” tour.

Do you agree?

I’d put Whoopi Goldberg or Tim Robbins on the list instead of the Sheens. I’m not sure 9-11 truther Charlie Sheen is even a liberal.

The Left: They’re Goin’ After Our Kids

I received this from The Tea Party Nation and I just lost it. Everyone, please read this. Ever see a momma lion and her cub? Are you not a Momma/Pappa Lion to your kids? I know this is where it ends for me. My kids. I’m all in. How about you. Pass it on.

Tea Party Nation

Brother and Sister patriots. As I write this article, my heart is full, almost tearful. I just watched a moving music video by Diamond Rio, “In God We Still Trust”, which is being banned by radio stations around our great country. My heart is heavy because more and more God, patriotism and everything we hold dear are under vicious attacks by “The Left“.

Most insidiously, the Left is going after the hearts and minds of our children. Fox News reported several schools are discouraging the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance while teaching our kids America is the greatest source of evil in the world.

Allow me to define “The Left” to Americans like my brother David who is not a political junkie. David is busy working hard, raising his family and only catches sound bites from the liberal mainstream media.

In a nut shell, the Left is mostly spoiled brat former 1960s hippies. Their WWII generation parents sacrificed and gave them everything. Consequently, these ungrateful arrogant superior elitists think the world revolves around them. Everything is about making “them” feel good about themselves.

They claim ownership of compassion and tolerance. Thus, they pontificate about the evils of America; racist, sexist, homophobic and consumers of way too much of the world’s resources. The Left believes the poor around the world has too little because we Americans have too much.

These Leftists; Michael Moore, Barbra Streisand, John Travolta and Al Gore to name a few, fly around in their private jets, live in palatial estates and command salaries which could fund a small country. These outspoken liberal elitist hypocrites consume more resources monthly than most of us will consume in our lifetime. And yet, they have the nerve to lecture us about using too much energy and the evils of American capitalism.

Don’t get me wrong. I applaud financial success and desire it for all Americans. But, don’t ride everywhere in a limo while lobbying the government to force me to drive a “tinker toy”.

The Left has an irrational resentment, if not hatred, of America. Insanely, numerous liberal Hollywood actresses support dictators and cultures in which, if they lived in those countries, they would not be allowed to be who they are in America. They would be reduced to being silent and subservient to men. And yet, these screwed up women defend dictators while accusing America of being evil sexist. Their “Blame America First” former hippie parents have trained them well.

Excuse my rant. But, that is who the Left is in a nutshell. Now, back to how they are going after our kids.

Despicably, the teachers’ union in Wisconsin used clueless students to help rally against their parents who are the taxpayers represented by Gov. Scott Walker. “Hey Hey! Ho Ho! Scott Walker has got to go!”

The Left has also launched an all out assault on home schools. The Bibles says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.

Obama and company are doing everything in their power to “bully” parents into surrendering their children over to them for government indoctrination.

In my travels to 200 tea parties across America in many states including Alaska, by far, home schooled kids are more poised, self confident and better educated than public school kids. Please don’t take offense. This is my honest observation.

For crying out loud, two thirds of Wisconsin public school 8th graders can not read proficiently! Any kind of discipline in public schools is considered an infringement on a student’s rights and subject to a law suit. Several inner city schools require students pass through a metal detector. Some schools have day care for kids who have kids. Schools will not give a child an Aspirin without parental consent. But an abortion, no problem. “This will be our little secret from your mom and dad. Now, go outside and play”.

A dear friend’s son is a 23 year old America hating Marxist. Sadly, this young white male believes American white males are the SOBs of the world. His mom still remembers the day he can home from middle school devastated and in tears. He was taught to feel guilty for the cruel abuse his ancestors and America’s founding fathers perpetrated upon native Americans and blacks.

Folks, the Left is going after our children.

Kristen Campbell is a tremendously brave high school student. I love this kid’s backbone. Kristen wrote a piece published in her school newspaper disagreeing with Michelle Obama. Kristen was called a racist. Her car was vandalized. The wrath of loyal Queen Obama supplicants, black students, parents and local church groups, came down hard on this child. Kristen was verbally and physically attacked. Folks, I’m talkin’ serious. Kristen was even threatened with a knife. Still, Kristen remains bold and outspoken in her defense of conservatism. http://giovanniworld.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/eagles-fly-alone/

Isn’t college suppose to be about the free flow of ideas? Leftist faculty at Rollins College is out to get a student, Jamie Pizzi, for daring to write an opinion piece on “anchor babies”. These so-called ambassadors of tolerance are only for free speech when you are spouting liberalism. Conservative speech is swiftly met with severe punishment until it is silenced. http://collegemediamatters.com/2011/03/26/illegal-immigration-colum…

They’re goin’ after our kids, folks!

Remember, the elementary school where kids were forced to sing the almost godlike praises to Obama? “Barack Husein Obama, Mmm-Mmm-Mmm!”

I watched a video with young black males dressed in military attire performing like a military drill team. They were saying “Because of Obama I’m inspired to be an architect, engineer and etc.” On the surface, this message might appear “positive”. I say, what a huge slap in the face to our great nation. Sadly, the democrat’s years of teaching blacks they are victims of racist America have been extremely effective. So, blacks were not free to achieve until Obama? Totally absurd. The video shows further indoctrination of the black youths by having them espouse the virtues of Obamacare. ALL LIES!

They’re goin’ after our kids, folks!

We MUST stop them. Step one is ending King Obama’s reign of terror with your vote November 2012.

Liberal WashPo Calls Obama an Absentee President

It’s getting ugly for the Fraud.

His former friends and acolytes are turning against him.

Spike Lee was upset with Obama’s slow and affectless response to last year’s BP Gulf oil crisis. Barbra Streisand, Hugh Hefner, “Glee” lesbian actress Jane Lynch, and the latest, Matt Damon, are all unhappy that their former messiah is not “aggressive” enough on the Left’s pet issues of DADT, gay “rights”, Gitmo, Afghan war, etc. (See Matt Damon joines the growing list of celebrities unhappy with President Obama“) Yup, Obama’s isn’t left enough for Rabid Hollywood. Scary!

 Now, the liberal Washington Post finally notices what we conservatives have been saying for some time: “Where’s Waldo?”

Obama’s ‘Where’s Waldo?’ presidency

By Ruth Marcus – WashPo – March 2, 2011 

For a man who won office talking about change we can believe in, Barack Obama can be a strangely passive president. There are a startling number of occasions in which the president has been missing in action – unwilling, reluctant or late to weigh in on the issue of the moment. He is, too often, more reactive than inspirational, more cautious than forceful.

Each of these instances can be explained on its own terms, as matters of legislative strategy, geopolitical calculation or political prudence.

He didn’t want to get mired in legislative details during the health-care debate for fear of repeating the Clinton administration’s prescriptive, take-ours-or-leave-it approach. He doesn’t want to go first on proposing entitlement reform because history teaches that this is not the best route to a deal. He didn’t want to say anything too tough about Libya for fear of endangering Americans trapped there. He didn’t want to weigh in on the labor battle in Wisconsin because, well, it’s a swing state.

Yet the dots connect to form an unsettling portrait of a “Where’s Waldo?” presidency: You frequently have to squint to find the White House amid the larger landscape.

This tough assessment from someone who generally shares the president’s ideological perspective may be hard to square with the conservative portrait of Obama as the rapacious perpetrator of a big-government agenda. If the president is being simultaneously accused of overreaching ambition and gutless fight-ducking, maybe he’s doing something right.

Maybe, or else Obama has at times managed to do both simultaneously. On health care, for instance, he took on a big fight without being able to articulate a clear message or being willing to set out any but the broadest policy prescriptions. Lawmakers, not to mention the public, were left guessing about what, exactly, the administration wanted to see in the measure and where it would draw red lines.

That was not an isolated case. Where, for example, is the president on the verge of a potential government shutdown – if not this week, then a few weeks from now?

Aside from a short statement from the Office of Management and Budget threatening a presidential veto of the House version of the funding measure, the White House – much to the frustration of some congressional Democrats – has been unclear in public and private about what cuts would and would not be acceptable.

By contrast, a few weeks before the shutdown in 1995, Clinton administration aides had dispatched Cabinet members and other high-ranking officials to spread the message that cuts in education, health care and housing would harm families and children. Obama seems more the passive bystander to negotiations between the House and Senate than the chief executive leading his party.

He performs best on a stage that permits the grandest sweep. He rises to the big occasion, from his inspiring introduction to the public in his 2004 Democratic convention speech to his healing words in the aftermath of the Tucson shootings.

The president has faltered, though, when called on to translate that rhetoric to more granular levels of specificity: What change, exactly, does he want people to believe in? How, even more exactly, does he propose to get there? “Winning the future” doesn’t quite do it.

My biggest beef is with the president’s slipperiness on fiscal matters. Obama has said he agrees with some of his fiscal commission’s recommendations and disagrees with others. Which ones does he disagree with? I asked this question the other day of Austan Goolsbee, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.

Here’s what I got: “The view espoused by some of the . . . commission that we ought to do Social Security 100 percent off of benefit cuts for sure he doesn’t agree with.” But of course, the plan that 11 of the commission members endorsed did nothing of the sort.

I was unfair to Goolsbee because I asked him a question he didn’t have the leeway to answer. You can’t blame the aide for ducking when the boss fudges.

Where’s Obama? No matter how hard you look, sometimes he’s impossible to find.
