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).

  1. 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).

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

Pop Culture Satanists

In the last couple of days, some of us on FOTM (see the comments section of the post, “Can Newt be Trusted?“) engaged each other in a lively debate about the curious “horns” hand signal that some politicians and pop stars make.

To some, they’re making the devil’s horns. Others say it’s really the “I luv u” or “rock on” signings at a rock or metal concert.

Christians have had the sign of the cross, holy hymns and sacred songs for centuries. Why is it incredible that the opposing side also have theirs?
Take a look at this video of a live performance of a death metal group called Possessed, in Berkeley in 1985. [Warning: suffocating spiritual darkness]
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MBmMttVlEg]
Wikipedia says:

Possessed is an American death metal band, originally formed in 1983. Noted for their fast style of playing and Jeff Becerra’s guttural vocals, they have been cited as a great influence on the death metal genre. In fact, the band’s influence on the genre is so great, they are sometimes called the first band in the death metal genre. Possessed are often cited as the first death metal band, largely because of the early use of grunted vocals. Satanic themes they had become noted for. Lyrically, most of Possessed’s songs focused on Satanism and death. The band’s efforts on [their first album] Seven Churches have been called an influence by groups like Death, Pestilence, Sepultura, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Vader, God Dethroned and Amon Amarth.

The band originated in the San Francisco Bay Area, California in 1983, when guitarist Mike Torrao and drummer Mike Sus’s garage band recruited Jeff Becerra following the suicide of vocalist Barry Fisk. In 1990, Jeff Becerra was paralyzed from the waist down following a shooting incident.

Did you know that the popular hip-hop artist Jay-Z, with a net worth of over $150 million and married to Beyonce Knowles, has a song to “Lucifer” in his 2003 The Black Album? ( H/t NiceneTruth.com)

Was That a Fake Baby Bump?

Here’s something totally non-political for a Friday….
Beyoncé is a very popular pop singer and actress. I’ve never listened to her, other than her serenading Barry and Moochelle as the “First Couple” danced at his 2009 inaugural ball.
But I do know that Beyoncé’s husband is Jay-Z, a wildly successful rapper, record producer and entrepreneur, because of the sinister name of one of his songs, “Lucifer,” and the occult symbolism in his music.
Beyoncé says she’s pregnant and is due to give birth in February, which means she’s in her second trimester.
Earlier this week, she appeared on the Australian talk show “Sunday Night HD.” As Beyoncé sat down before her interviewer, her baby bump appeared to collapse, fueling rumors that she’s wearing a prosthetic belly, and that she and Jay-Z had hired a surrogate to carry the baby, their first.
Here are pics of her sitting down, showing the peculiar collapsed baby bump. To watch an ABCNews video of this, click here.

I know this belongs in the category of Pop Culture Trivia, but it just looks weird to me. I wonder what readers of FOTM who have carried a pregnancy to term think. Let’s hear from you!
