Via The Sun:  The all-white group protested against “racist climate change”, calling their action “white allyship under black leadership”. Now it has emerged the public face of the movement once impersonated white US actor Al Jolson, who used “blackface” make-up in 1927 film The Jazz Singer.

Oxford student Adam Elliott-Cooper, 29, daubed his face with mud at a spring on the Caribbean island of St Lucia and copied Jolson’s “jazz hands” dance moves.

The mixed-race activist bragged in a Facebook post: “The natural sulphur at the  springs is supposed 2 be good for your skin. But me and my brother decided we could make better use of it if we pretended we were in the minstrels.

When someone asked if he was trying to be black, Elliott-Cooper replied: “I was going for the dark skinned asian look.”

Adam Elliott Cooper interview on Radio 4 Black Lives Matter

The post-grad geography student, whose family live in a £500,000 home in Wood Green, North London, has represented Black Lives Matter UK on Radio 4’s Today programme and Channel 4 news.

He is studying groups like BLM for his thesis on race issues in modern Britain.

And while BLM does not support any political party, Elliott-Cooper is a huge backer of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. He also claimed England was on the “brink of fascism” after voting for Brexit.

But he appears to have remained tight-lipped since nine of his BLM comrades launched a six-hour demonstration on the runway of East London’s City Airport. They have all been charged with aggravated trespass and being unlawfully airside, which can lead to three months’ jail.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. says he was blacklisted by Hollywood directors after supporting Donald Trump

Just what I would expect from liberals, you know, the ones who are “tolerant” of the ideas of others.

From Fox News: Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. claims he has been blacklisted by Hollywood directors thanks to his speech at the Republican National Convention in July.

The soap opera star spoke with Variety about the backlash he received after voicing his support for Donald Trump at the RNC. “It’s been interesting,” he told Variety. “I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. They will never even see me for projects. That’s unfair. It’s just like Communism.”

Sabato said he just wanted to voice his opinion. “I was never a politician. I care about my country. I put God first. For the last seven-and-a-half years, I’ve seen this country led by a leader that’s made mistakes. I spoke my mind about it. But because I’m in the industry, you can’t talk about that,” he said.

And it’s not just those in Hollywood that are angry with Sabato’s remarks; the actor said he was also slammed on social media for his political views. “On Twitter, there’s been name calling, and celebrities attacking me. That’s fine. I see it, but I don’t read it. I block them and delete them and move on.”

Despite all of the backlash, the actor has no plans to leave Hollywood behind. “I have my hands in all kinds of businesses. I’m never going to leave Hollywood. I’m going to go after it one way or another,” he said. “I’m just speaking the truth — people don’t know how this business works.”

Hollyweird Hypocrite: Jennifer Aniston

In mid-July, Jennifer Aniston wrote a blistering piece to the press.

From CNN: Jennifer Aniston isn’t pregnant — but she is “fed up” with the constant media speculation and “objectification” about her personal life that has led to years of rampant rumors, she says in a new essay.

In a piece published Tuesday by Huffington Post, the “Friends” actress simultaneously dispels the most recent round of pregnancy rumors and takes the celebrity news industry to task for perpetuating unhealthy standards and ideas.

“The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty,” she writes.

Aniston, who married “Leftovers” actor Justin Theroux in 2015, points to her own experience as tabloid fodder as evidence that celebrity news perpetuates a “dehumanizing view of females”one in which a woman’s value is determined by her physical appearance and “marital and maternal status.”

Blah, blah, blah.

Read the whole story here.

Take a look at the ad for her new perfume:

Now take a look at Aniston in real life:

Looks like her physical appearance has been seriously altered in the ad, in order to sell her precious perfume. That is some warped standard. Hypocrite.

Kerry: Air conditioners as big a threat as ISIS

Whatever you say, Lurch.

Kerry on 9.4.13

From Fox News: Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.

The terrible dangers to our planet...

The terrible dangers to our lives…

The Washington Examiner reported that Kerry was in Vienna to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, from basic household and commercial appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers.

“As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism,” Kerry said. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”

Kerry said that most of the substances banned in the Montreal Protocol have increased the use of HFCs and claimed that the coolant was thousands of times more potent than CO2. He added that the increase of HFCs has led to the trend of global climate change.

“The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing,” Kerry said. “Already, the HFCs use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.”

Members of the Montreal Protocol have met their obligations and have aided in the shrinking of the hole in the ozone, as well as created jobs and improved the quality of life, Kerry said.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy was also present at the negotiations and is serving as the lead negotiator for the United States. McCarthy has said that her goal is to enact the HFC agreement by the end of the year.

New EPA rules along with the global deal would band HFCs in the United States and push for alternative chemicals for use in appliances. The negotiations are part of President Obama’s climate agenda to combat global climate change.

One of many of the Kerry’s homes

I wonder how many air conditioners and refrigerators are in the multiple homes that John and Teresa Kerry own in the U.S., including:

  • A five-story, twelve-room brownstone townhouse (with six fireplaces, a rooftop deck, and an elevator) in Boston’s Beacon Hill. This home is John Kerry’s main residence and was assessed at a value of $6.6 million in 2003
  • A nine-room colonial home on a 90-acre family farm in Fox Chapel near Pittsburgh. This home is Teresa Kerry’s longtime residence, where she lived while was married to John Heinz and where she raised her three children. It is valued at $3.7 million.
  • A ski/vacation home located near the banks of the Big Wood River in Ketchum, Idaho, fashioned from a reassembled barn originally built in England in 1485 and brought to Idaho by Teresa Heinz Kerry’s late husband. It was purchased for $4.9 million in 1988.
  • A three-story, five-bedroom waterfront estate near the Brant Point Lighthouse in Nantucket’s harbor, where John and Teresa Kerry were married in 1995. The beachfront property is valued at $9.1 million.
  • A 23-room townhouse in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C., valued at $4.7 million.

Knows which artists to boycott: Music’s A-list delivers a lecture on gun control

Funny, I’ve never seen any of these musicians ever show up in Chiraq to protest their weekly – and deadly – gun violence.

stop gun violence

From Daily Mail: More than 180 members of the music industry are voicing support for the Democrats’ efforts in Congress to pass gun control measures, courtesy of Billboard magazine. 

The editors of the publication reached out to the people they covered asking them to sign an open letter to Congress asking for two measures – expanded background checks and banning people on the no fly list from buying guns – to be passed.

Streisand - does anyone even listen to her music anymore?

Joan Jett was the first to sign the letter, quickly followed by Lady Gaga. Soon, the remaining members of the Beatles – Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr – had signed on, along with Hillary Clinton supporters Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Demi Lovato and pop princesses Shakira and Britney Spears.

Katie Perry - not a cult.

Katie Perry – not a cult.

The group Everytown for Gun Safety aided the effort. ‘As leading artists and executives in the music industry, we are adding our voices to the chorus of Americans demanding change,’ the letter began.

‘Music always has been celebrated communally, on dancefloors and at concert halls. But this life-affirming ritual, like so many other daily experiences – going to school or church or work – now is threatened, because of gun violence in this country,’ it continued.

‘The one thing that connects the recent tragedies in Orlando is that it is far too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on guns,’ the letter said. It went on to say that more than 90 Americans are killed by guns everyday and asked for the two measures to be passed.

‘Billboard and the undersigned implore you—the people who are elected to represent us—to close the deadly loopholes that put the lives of so many music fans, and all of us, at risk,’ the letter concluded.

Also among the 180 – some of the hottest up-and-coming names in music, including Kesha, Macklemore and Diplo. Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris was included, along with model Gigi Hadid’s on-again-off-again beau Zayn Malik, who first made a name for himself as a member of One Direction.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who Democrats are reportedly trying to recruit to perform at this summer’s Democratic National Convention, put his name on the list. Icons like Cher and  Billy Joel were included too. Besides the two living Beatles, Yoko Ono signed the letter.

Cher is a rabid anti-gunner!

She was personally affected by gun violence, losing her husband, the legendary John Lennon, in 1980 when Mark David Chapman shot the former Beatle multiple times at close range.  Lennon was pronounced dead by the time he arrived at New York City’s Roosevelt Hospital.

Another name on the list – pop star Selena Gomez – is still in mourning after her friend, Voice star Christina Grimmie, was shot and killed by a deranged fan the Friday night before Sunday’s Pulse nightclub shooting, with both incidents taking place in Orlando.

Gomez broke down at a performance in Miami the next day. ‘When she was 14, we met her and my parents and I signed her,’ Gomez said. ‘One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it’s not about a religion and it’s not about anything or good deeds,’ the pop star continued.

‘It’s just that she had faith, and I don’t really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her,’ Gomez added.  She then preformed Hillsong Worship’s Transfiguration in Grimmie’s honor.

Activists leave behind a mess in Anacortes – and it isn’t the first time they’ve done this

On Sunday I told you about the “kyaktivists” that were heading to Anacortes, Washington this past weekend to protest “fossil fuel” in the name of saving the planet. Guess what those who care so much about Mother Earth left behind at their protest?

From MyNorthwest.com: Protesters demanding action on climate change in Anacortes over the weekend left quite the mess.

The Anacortes Police Department confirmed the trash along the BNSF track was left behind from the protest held over the weekend, KIRO 7 reports. However, it is unclear if it was left intentionally or on accident.

It’s possible the trash was left behind as law enforcement arrested 52 people, Anacortes Police spokesperson Lou D’Amelia told KIRO 7. But Facebook users say otherwise. One user pointed out on the activist’s Facebook page – Break Free PNW – that the “people on the tracks were given ample time and warning to remove themselves and their garbage…”

anacortes mess

Whether it was on purpose or accident is up for speculation. What isn’t left to speculation is that it isn’t the first time people protesting large oil companies have left a mess.

In May of 2015, activists – or kayaktivists – protesting Shell oil and the impacts drilling has on the environment left behind material used to anchor their protest barge in a popular Seattle dive park. “The People’s Platform,” which was parked over the dive park near Seacrest Park, was moved. However, divers later found cement blocks, cables, and chains strewn about the popular spot that octopuses frequent.

George Clooney admits Bernie Sanders was ‘absolutely right’ to criticize $353,400 ticket price of his Clinton fundraiser dinner

Like a typical proggie, Clooney admits what he’s doing is wrong yet does it anyway. Classic “do as I say, not as I do” liberal…

george clooney hypocrite

From the Daily Mail: George Clooney, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, broke ranks over campaign financing on Saturday to condemn the ‘obscene’ sums of money in politics and praised Bernie Sanders in the process.

Clooney made the remarks in an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC News’’ Meet The Press the day after he and his wife, Amal, hosted a fundraiser on Democratic Party hopeful Clinton’s behalf Friday night in San Francisco with a price tag of up to $353,400 per couple.

Todd asked: ‘Let me start with a dinner you co-hosted on Friday night. A big fundraiser, I know that you have planned for later tonight. ‘Uh, do you look at, uh, how much is being raised, and I think the cost of the Friday night dinner – $353,000 uh, a couple, to be a co-chair – do you look at it yourself and think, “That’s an obscene amount of money?”‘

The Hollywood A-lister responded: ‘Yes. I think it’s an obscene amount of money.’ Clooney added: ‘I think that – you know, we had some protesters last night when we, uh, when we pulled up in San Francisco, and they’re right to protest. They’re absolutely right. It is an obscene amount of money. The Sanders campaign when they talk about it is absolutely right. It’s ridiculous that we should have this kind of money in politics. I agree completely.Yet Clooney CHOSE to HOST a FUNDRAISER with the OBSCENE price tag.

do as i say

Bernie Sanders, a U.S. Senator from Vermont and Clinton’s rival in the race for the Democratic nomination to run for the White House in the November 8 election, has pounced on former secretary of state Clinton over the big-ticket event and for accepting large sums of money for her campaign.

Sanders told CNN in March: ‘I have a lot of respect for George Clooney. He’s a great actor. I like him. But this is the problem with American politics, is that big money is dominating our political system.’ Sanders said at the time: ‘So it’s not a criticism of Clooney. It’s a criticism of a corrupt campaign finance system, where big money interests — and it’s not Clooney, it’s the people coming to this event — have undue influence on the political process.

In response to the dinner, the Sanders campaign on Friday evening sent out an email to supporters asking them to help reach their fundraising goals by chipping in $3.53 a piece, instead.

Clooney and his wife were going to hold at their house on Saturday a fundraiser in Los Angeles, Variety reported. Tickets reportedly cost $33,400 each. 

A fundraiser for Sanders was to take place in the area, with tickets going for a far-cheaper $27 a pop, Variety reported.

NBC News reporter Shaquille Brewster tweeted a video Saturday, writing: ‘Bernie Sanders supporters shower @HillaryClinton’s motorcade with [money emojis] as she passes their LA counter-fundraiser.’  Music featuring the words ‘We’re in the money’ can be heard playing during the stunt in the clip.

According to Newsbusters, hypocrite Clooney blamed his own fundraising efforts on Citizens United and the Koch brothers, of course. He said, “The Koch brothers would profit if they got their way and that’s what — you know, we have — there’s no profit for us in this… and so our job is to try counter that in some way.”

Clooney can spare me his faux outrage over conservatives spending their money when he’s raising millions for the liberals.
