Spike Lee tells Hollyweird to “shut it down” in Georgia over their heartbeat bill

CANNES, FRANCE – MAY 15: Director Spike Lee holds up a fist as he attends the photocall for “BlacKkKlansman” during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on May 15, 2018 in Cannes, France. (Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images)

Another self-important Hollyweird celebrity who thinks he knows what is best for the citizens of Georgia rather than the elected officials.

Hey Spike, why don’t you worry about the kids being killed in the streets of Chiraq? You know, the same name of your 2015 film that lost $12.3 million dollars? Guess you can’t be bothered with them since that gun violence avenue didn’t make you any money. See his Instagram for what is REALLY important to him (Hint: self-promotion.) Hypocrite.

From MyFoxChicago: Director Spike Lee is calling for Hollywood production companies to leave Georgia over a law that would ban abortions as early as six weeks, upon detection of a fetal heartbeat.

Most studios that have commented have said they’re waiting to see if the so-called “heartbeat” law actually takes effect next year, or if the courts will block it. But at the arrivals line for Denzel Washington’s American Film Institute lifetime achievement tribute Thursday, Lee said now is the time for Georgia-based productions to “shut it down” and boycott the state’s booming film industry to drive change.

Lee acknowledged that a mass exodus could dent livelihoods, but cited black bus drivers affected by the Civil Rights Movement-era boycott in Montgomery.

“I know it’s going to affect people’s livelihood. But that’s how things change,” Lee said. (Well it certainly won’t affect HIS livelihood so NBD, right?)

“You’ve got to be on the right side of history, and the state of Georgia and those other states, they’re wrong,” he added.

Georgia’s economy currently gets a $9.5 billion annual boost from the industry.

ID’s? We don’t need no stinking IDs!

An American citizen who wants to board a commercial airplane must first show a government issued photo identification card to a federal agent, and then undergo a search that includes an X-ray and frequently a hand search of all carry-on items, taking off your shoes and belt, dumping EVERYHHING out of your pockets, and, finally, undergoing a full-body scan, with your hands over your head, by a machine that shows an image of EVERYTHING beneath your clothing as if you had walked through the scanner buck naked. It is the electronic equivalent of a full body strip search.

Oooooh baby!

But, there is one demographic that neither has to show an ID, nor or undergo a security check.

Yes, you guessed it.

Illegal aliens.

Since December 2018, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has permitted illegal aliens released from custody to board domestic flights without having any of 15 forms of identification typically required for airline travel, the Washington Examiner reported exclusively on Thursday. The practice has been in place for at least six months and perhaps considerably longer, according to some sources.

A TSA spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that illegal aliens could fly without identification as long as they provided Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Form I-862, the “Notice to Appear” form that is provided to immigrants who have applied for asylum, passed a credible fear assessment, and could wait up to five years for a federal judge to decide their case.

The form can serve as identification because it is only issued after a background check has been conducted on the applicant while in federal custody, the spokesperson noted.

The TSA’s website lists 15 forms of identification acceptable to travel, which are:

•Driver’s licenses or other state photo identity cards issued by Department of Motor Vehicles (or equivalent)
•U.S. passport
•U.S. passport card
•DHS trusted traveler cards (Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)
•U.S. Department of Defense ID, including IDs issued to dependents
•Permanent resident card
•Border crossing card
•DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license
•Federally recognized, tribal-issued photo ID
•HSPD-12 PIV card
•Foreign government-issued passport
•Canadian provincial driver’s license or Indian and Northern Affairs Canada card
•Transportation worker identification credential
•U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Employment Authorization Card (I-766)
•U.S. Merchant Mariner Credential

However, form I-862 is not listed as an acceptable form of identification, and it isn’t provided until 180 days after approval of a credible fear claim.

A U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) official told the Washington Examiner that Form I-862’s sole purpose is to tell applicants when to appear in court, and it cannot authorize applicants to travel.

“TSA accepts identification documentation issued by other government agencies, which is validated through the issuing agency. All passengers are then subject to appropriate screening measures,” the TSA said in a statement to Washington Examiner.

But, Republican Rep. Steve King tweeted Wednesday, “Illegals enter the U.S. every day with no ID. Until recently, DHS didn’t even finger print those under 14 but has flown illegals of all ages to every state. No way they all have valid ID’s. If they fly commercial, TSA has to be waiving the valid ID requirement.”

Illegal aliens may have used Form I-862s as identification for travel since 2014.

In 2014, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran told KFOX14 that border patrol agents had observed TSA agents accepting the I-862 form and allowing the illegals to fly wherever they pleased with no questions asked.

“These documents are easily reproduced on any type of copier or home computer, they have no photographs, so there’s really no way to verify that the person holding them is actually who they say they are,” Moran told KFOX14 at the time. “We’re just concerned that the commercial transportation system could be exploited by somebody claiming to be another person.”

Royal hypocrite: Prince Charles says it may be too late to save the natural world

This hypocrite has massive residences in England, Scotland and Wales. He flies on a 28-seat luxury jet.

He once sent his staff ahead of one of his visits with a truck carrying furniture to replace the perfectly appropriate fittings in the guest rooms (see above video).

When he speaks about “acceptable alternatives for people” you can be sure he’s referring to us commoners and not himself.

From Daily Mail: Prince Charles fears the natural world may be doomed as efforts to counter climate change are ‘coming too late’.

The lifelong environmental campaigner, 70, admitted the loss of biodiversity ‘terrifies me’ and said ‘the really difficult thing’ is presenting acceptable alternatives for people.

He said a key issue is the ‘untold damage’ done to the world’s water cycle – in a nod to the fact that ‘we seem to have forgotten that everything in nature is interconnected’.

But striking a more positive note, the Prince of Wales seemed to have a constructive conversation with US President Donald Trump during his state visit earlier this week.

The Prince and the President were said to have had a 90-minute ‘friendly’ discussion on climate change over tea at Clarence House, despite their conflicting views.

President Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement on June 1, 2017, and claimed climate change was a ‘Chinese hoax’ while on the campaign trail in 2016. The Prince ‘did most of the talking’ during their chat, according to the president.

But he said of the Duke of Cornwall: ‘What he really feels one way about is the future. He wants to make sure future generations have climate that is good climate as opposed to a disaster, and I agree’.

Mr. Trump, who has previously accused climate experts of having a ‘political agenda’, told ITV’s Good Morning Britain he ‘totally listened’ to the prince when the issue came up.

The Prince, a keen gardener, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his gardens at his private estate in Highgrove, near Tetbury, Gloucestershire.

He has come under flak over the years for adopting an organic approach to horticulture but it has since become popular.

Perpetual victimhood: Failed demorat congressional candidate Saira Rao is a miserable womyn who hates everything

Via Ryan Saavedra’s Twitter timeline the other night, I discovered a miserable demorat womyn. Her name is Saira Rao and she ran, unsuccessfully, for Congress in Denver. From her Twitter bio:

“Writer| Columnist @browngirlmag and author of upcoming BROKEN NEWS @mcsweeneys. Founder @intogethermedia. she/her/hers”

She is apparently a “brown girl” and has a serious problem with many things in America:

The American flag
Perceived “white privilege”
White men
White folks

She also claims that: “If you are not actively anti-racist, you are actively racist.”

And this: “White people have done everything to make my life miserable. Yet I’m supposed to not hate white people?”

Her Twitter timeline gives a glimpse into the liberal mind of misery, hate, misconstrued perceptions, and mental disorder.

Imagine going through life being so miserable and having such a sense of perceived victimhood. And having the desire to share your misery on social media.

Sounds like the girl needs some therapy…

Rapper Drake purchases massive private jet despite rapping about dangers of climate change

No doubt Leo is hoping to catch a ride on that private plane one day…

From Daily Mail: Drake now owns a massive Boeing 767 cargo plane – despite once rapping about the dangers of climate change on the polar ice caps.

The ‘Trophies’ rapper unveiled his new possession on Instagram Friday and the aircraft features his OVO owl symbol, along with the moniker ‘Air Drake.’

OVO stands for Drake’s company – October’s Very Own – and for his record label OVO sound.

The 32-year-old Grammy winner took viewers on a quick tour of the plane’s interior. Inside the plane are luxury gold and brown sofas adorned with gold walls. ‘No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners,’ he proudly boasts as he shows off his new plane.

In the clip, Drake also pays homage to CargoJet’s President and CEO Ajay Virmani. He stated: ‘That guy made it happen right there, that’s the man.’

The unveiling of the plane comes after news broke that Drake had partnered with the Canadian company.

‘We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements,’ Virmani said in the statement. ‘We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. Cargojet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together.’

Airways magazine puts the massive plane at approximately $185million – and that is without the customization.

But the new plane does seem to go against a brief moment when the rapper appeared to warn on the dangers of climate change.

In his song ‘Heat of the Moment’ he makes reference to climate change and specifically the melting of the ice cap. ‘And all the cops are still hangin’ out at the doughnut shops,’ he says in the song. ‘Talkin’ ’bout how the weather’s changin. The ice is meltin’ as if the world is endin.’

While the song is about his relationship with a woman, it is clear he was thinking about the impending chaos that would come with climate change.

Now it seems he’s aiding in the process.

———————

Back in 2014, “Kill Your Darlings” described Drake’s “Heat of the Moment” ballad as such:

He uses the song as a platform to rail against climate change and examine his own complicity in the ongoing degradation of the natural world.

He enters a state of existential reflection, with a realisation of his impeding mortality: what will be the intrinsic value of his music, if the ice caps melt and the world is no longer sustainable? Or perhaps more pertinently, he realises that with his stadium-sized cultural standing, and ability to impact on the world at large, he is in an undeniable position of power to enact meaningful change and ensure the survival of the planet’s ecosystem – a network nearly as complicated, beautiful, and wonderfully diverse as Drake himself.

The ‘strap’ (condom) that Drake doesn’t have on him is a poignant metaphor for his hitherto unprotected involvement with the neoliberal capitalist structures that enable his multi-million dollar success as a recording artist. He has engaged with these structures without giving any thought to the potential consequences if he proceeds with his irresponsible lifestyle of shallow pleasures. The reference to the ‘last man’ leaving his girl behind, and him picking ‘it’ up, is a sly post-imperialist nod to the ways in which the Baby Boomer generation have acted without care toward our planet, and an acknowledgement that Drake’s generation, which has perhaps previously been reluctant to assume this responsibility, must now do so.”

Read the rest here where they state, Drake has bought himself a Prius – he’s ‘riding clean’ – and yet, in this confession he makes directly to God, he is still thinking about his many luxurious gas-guzzling mistresses – ‘but I’m thinking dirty things, yes Lord, yes Lord’.

You go first: Alec Baldwin says Americans must make certain sacrifices to save the planet from climate change

Want to know what kind of sacrifices Alec makes?

Alec has five children.

Alec has a NYC apartment (comprised of three units) which has two master bedroom suites and takes up the 12th floor of a building.

Alec’s “sacrifice” in the Hamptons…

Alec has a HUGE mansion in the Hamptons.

Back in 2011, Alec was paid to promote airline travel/miles via the “Match My Miles” program for Capital One. The deal: Open a Capital One Venture Card and consumers had the opportunity to match up to 100,000 miles they currently have (had) in an airline credit card rewards program.

Sacrifices for thee but not for me.

From Daily Mail: Alec Baldwin was speaking at a UN panel in NYC on the subject of threats to forest defenders during an annual meeting on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old star opened up about his passion for preserving the planet and called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices.’

‘I recognize – as does anyone that is paying attention that Indigenous Peoples across this planet are on the front lines of the fight to protect forests and deserve and need the support and protection of the international community,” he said.

The SNL star added that his sole love for the planet wasn’t enough, with the rest of the United States needing to get on board in order to stop the ‘enslavement of Indigenous People.’

‘I’m an American, and I love my country. I’m very proud of my country but I also recognize that the United States is built on a core of building blocks and those are: political resources; friendly and manageable borders; hard work; innovation; ingenuity, but also slavery and the enslavement of Indigenous Peoples.’

Alec called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices’ if we want to see the planet thrive and help combat climate change.

He also insisted that he loves the UN because of its ‘permanent missions’ to make the world a better place.

‘There are things that we just can’t imagine that can happen in terms of the food supply, in terms of climate change, in terms of flooding in coastal areas in the United States and beyond. The time is now to make certain sacrifices … so that this planet will remain habitable for today’s children,’ he preached.

‘My favorite thing about the UN is the word “permanence”, they have permanent missions and permanent forums. They’re the only ones who can say, “We’re here and we’re not going anywhere.” And I love the inevitability of that.’

Sanctuary haven: King County, WA executive to ban ICE detainee flights at airport

King County Executive Constantine: Respects the rights of illegals over federal laws.

Yet NOT A PEEP from King County when illegal aliens were deported from this airport under the Obama Administration. TDS-infected HYPOCRITES.

From King County Executive Dow Constantine’s announcement:

“King County Executive Dow Constantine signed an order that directs King County International Airport to amend lease practices with the goal of banning flights of immigration detainees chartered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The action applies to companies that operate hangar space and other facilities. Meanwhile, King County International Airport will update its rules to make ICE flights more transparent.

In June 2018, King County became aware that ICE was transporting immigrant detainees through King County International Airport via charter aircraft.

Since that time, King County officials from the Executive’s Office, airport, and King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office have reviewed operations and legal options to better understand ICE activities. At Executive Constantine’s direction, King County also reached out to advocacy groups to begin formulating a response.

Neither ICE nor its private contract air-carriers are obligated to file passenger manifests or flight schedules with King County. King County cannot board planes to inspect passengers or cargo, nor direct federal air traffic controllers to prevent any plane from landing.

On April 23, Executive Constantine signed an order to ensure future long-term leases with companies that operate hangars and other facilities at King County International Airport comply with local immigration and human rights ordinances. Specifically, ordinances that dictate that King County will not cooperate or facilitate immigration enforcement directives unless accompanied by a court order.

The Executive Order also updates King County International Airport’s “Minimum Standards” to provide reports and audits from businesses involved with transporting immigration detainees.

King County International Airport will, to the extent possible, install security cameras at public ramps and other key locations.

“Here in King County, we are a welcoming community that respects the rights of all people. My Executive Order seeks to make sure all those who do business with King County uphold the same values,” said Executive Constantine. “Our goal is to ban flights of immigrant detainees from our publicly owned airport, and I hope members of Congress shine a light on this practice and how it is currently funded.”

Hollyweird stars who are “moving toward reducing their carbon footprints”

Earth Day is upon us!

That means the spin comes out of Hollyweird to highlight actors who claim to care so much about the environment while they spew massive carbon emissions to lecture us all about “climate change.”

Witness excerpts from this fantastic BS article from Hollywood Reporter:

Ben Affleck raising awareness of the benefits of flying via private jets…

Ben Affleck co-founded the Eastern Congo Initiative in 2010 and has been using the organization to raise awareness of threatened natural resources in the region. According to its website, the initiative revolves around the philosophy that local, community-based approaches are essential to creating a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo. In partnership with Matt Damon’s nonprofit, Water.org, Affleck used his organization to support clean water initiatives in Africa.

The “reality” of climate change doesn’t affect the size of Cameron’s Malibu home…

In a stance against President Trump’s remarks about climate change, director James Cameron targeted and rebutted the president’s claims in the documentary Not Reality TV. The film referenced Trump’s “reckless denial” of climate change and showed a clip of the GOP nominee calling global warming a “hoax.” James Cameron spoke to The Hollywood Reporter back in 2016 about why he felt that making this documentary was necessary. “We made this film to show the reality of climate change — how it’s directly affecting millions of people each day,” said Cameron. “As I’ve said before, to save our planet we need to mobilize like we did during World War II — the threat to our country and children is that severe.”

Dubbed “the greenest guy in Hollywood,” Leonardo DiCaprio has made significant strides in conservation. He has made investments in a vegan meat company and donated millions to help wildlife conservation and fight against climate change. DiCaprio has also invested in Allbirds, a sustainable shoe brand. For all of his efforts, the United Nations honored him with the title of Messenger of Peace on Climate Change.

Back in 2011, Emma Watson collaborated with designer Alberta Ferretti to create an eco-friendly clothing line, Pure Threads. Since then, Watson has been intentional about her involvement in the sustainable fashion movement. She launched the Instagram account @the_press_tour specifically to share about her outfits she wore on the press tour for Beauty and the Beast. In captions, the actress educated her followers on the brand’s history and shared about their environmentally friendly standards.

Hollyweird hypocrite Emma Thompson flies 5,400+ miles to protest climate change

Leonardo DiCaprio would be proud.

From The Sun: Emma Thompson was accused of hypocrisy last night after jetting 5,400-miles to take part in London’s eco-protest. The Oscar-winning actress flew back to London from LA to support the eco-warriors plotting to take down Heathrow today.

It is estimated that a single 5,456-mile transatlantic flight between Los Angeles and London Heathrow would run up a three tonne carbon footprint.

Thompson posted a video on social media to pledge her support to the group. She donned denim dungarees and a green sticker of the Extinction Rebellion symbol in front of an inflatable plastic elephant.

The Bafta-award winning actress explained that she would have joined the protest earlier but she had been busy celebrating her 60th birthday. She added: “I am so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion, a new movement that has come up behind all the old ones that I’ve been part of since I was 16 years old.

“A movement that’s telling it like it is and saying to government ‘look, there’s no more time. You can’t lie and you can’t stall any longer’.”

Many protesters involved in the march have demanded that the Government limit how many times individuals can fly each year.

A spokesperson for Dame Emma told the MailOnline: “She had to fly home at any rate, it was just earlier than she thought she could have. At the moment, that is our only available and practical means of trans-global travel.”

Ringleader of the movement Robin Boardman-Pattison declared during a television interview this week that flying “should only be used in emergencies” despite appearing to travel extensively.

An Extinction Rebellion spokesman said: “If Emma Thompson wants to come and help out, that’s great, she’s using her platform which is incredibly valuable to anyone. If she has to fly around the world like a climate lawyer might have to fly around the world, it seems counter-productive in the short term but we are looking at the bigger picture.”
