Hollyweird libtard Scarlett Johansson endorses Warren; claims demorat isn’t making “crazy, outlandish promises that seem impossible to reach”

From Daily Mail: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has snagged the endorsement of actress Scarlett Johansson, the highest-banking actress in Hollywood.

Johansson, who has played a role in prior presidential election efforts, is not only providing campaign cash but defending the progressive firebrand’s proposals as ‘realistic’ and achievable.

‘She feels like someone who is thoughtful and progressive but realistic,’ Johansson told the Hollywood Reporter. She referenced Warren’s policy-heavy campaign as she battles Sen. Bernie Sanders for support among the party’s left wing.

She has been gaining on former Vice President Joe Biden, who is stressing his ability to beat President Trump while Warren and Sanders push ‘Medicare for All’ plans.

‘It’s not like her campaign is making these crazy, outlandish promises that seem impossible to reach. There’s a strategy there,’ Johansson said of Warren.

Johansson is also vowing to make further public efforts in the election – though stopped short of saying she would take more public actions during the primaries, such as hosting a fundraiser or appearing on the stump with Warren.

She made the comments last month on the set of Marvel’s Avengers spinoff, Black Widow, outside London.

‘Other Democrats have said to me, ‘Oh, it’s really early to back someone,’ she told the publication. ‘That kind of worries me because it doesn’t feel that early to me. I’m like, “Really?” It’s disconcerting that’s there’s not a clear candidate at this time.’

She is one of a handful of celebs who maxed out to Warren in time for her June campaign finance report. Others included Bette Midler, Jane Fonda, and Disney’s Jeffrey Katzenberg, the Hill reported.

In 2018, Johansson was part of an innuendo-filled PSA for March for Our Lives and We Stand United called ‘First Time’ that encouraged people to vote by having celebrities share tidbits about their first experience at the ballot back.

‘I was nervous,’ Johansson said with a sly smile on her face. This presidential cycle, ‘I’ll be there however I’m needed,’ Johansson said.

‘If I can help with voter engagement, whether it’s doing some sort of PSA campaign or actively trying to involve people in the process of registering and voting. I really believe if people actually did vote, our government would look the way it’s supposed to, but people just don’t vote. It baffles me.’

Johansson backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The actress also continued to stand by director Woody Allen, who helped launch her blockbuster career, and who faces accusations of sexual abuse by daughter Dylan Farrow that he denies.

‘I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him,’ Johansson told the publication.

Hillary's fundraising visit to Hollywood would have been greeted with evil "flying monkey" signs

Hillary “What difference does it make” Clinton is scheduled to speak tonight night at a Democratic National Committee Fundraiser event at Brentwood’s Tavern restaurant in Los Angeles.
The fundraiser event — the third major Demonrat fundraising in L.A. in a month — is sponsored by Hollywood heavyweights and diehard Demonrats director Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Disney Studio chairman Alan Horn. Tickets for the event for monied Hollyweirdos, which include a reception, photo and dinner, cost $32,400 each — the maximum allowed individual contribution to a national party committee per calendar yer.
Below is the image that would have greeted the Hildebeast — that of an evil flying monkey from The Wizard of Oz.
According to Tina Daunt of The Hollywood Reporter, Oct. 17, 2014, the “flying monkey” sign is the creation of guerrilla street artist SABO.
Last Friday morning, SABO hung signs depicting Wizard of Oz flying monkeys holding “Hillary 2016” signs from traffic lights and pasted them on utility boxes near the Tavern Restaurant. In an email to Hollywood Reporter, SABO explains, “All these leftists, I’m tired of their s—.”
But SABO recounted that almost immediately, one poster near a Whole Foods grocery store was “violently” torn down.
Louisiana native SABO, the conservatives’ answer to liberal artists like Shepard Fairey, had moved to Los Angeles in 1987 to attend the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
SABO recently made headlines with his Gwyneth Paltrow “Obama Drone” poster. (See DCG’s post, “Angry neighbors slam Gwyneth Paltrow after she throws political party for Barack Obama“.)
Funny stuff: Posters put up in Paltrow's neighborhood
Some of SABO’s other works include:

  • A caricature of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi twerking, which helped launch the conservative website Breitbart California, triggered demands for an apology from a cross section of angry Demonrats.

  •  Last year, when Texas pro-abort lawmaker Wendy Davis came to L.A. to raise money, SABO lampooned her as “Abortion Barbie.”

  • In addition to the flying monkey posters, SABO has been busy working on a fake Tavern website, which ridicules Hillary and the Democratic Party.
  • He also has an entire section of his website Unsavory Agents dedicated to Hillary. “It sickens me to see just about every California Republican I run across pull out the white flag in surrender to the coming coronation of Hillary Clinton,” SABO wrote on his website. “They’ve all but given up without a hint of a fight. Let this image be a reminder to them that our lady in waiting is not invincible. Obama came out of nowhere and knocked her off her perch without so much as trying.”

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, SABO said Hollywood and politics have become a focal point of his guerrilla art, particularly with his “Drone” campaign, which also features Samuel L. Jackson, Alec Baldwin and Jon Stewart.
“I think the drone campaign encapsulates how I feel about Hollywood,” he says. “You know, it’s kind of like a double or triple entendre in that, I mean, if you listen to one of these celebrities go on, they’re like, droning on and on and on about how they love Obama or the left or the Democrats, or they drone on about how much Republicans suck, and in a way, much the way an unmanned aircraft flies through the air, these people fly through the airwaves.”
Alas, a mere day after SABO had put up the Hillary flying monkey signs, all of the posters and banners were either removed or painted over.
Because in America today, and especially in Demonrat-worshipping Hollywood, you just can’t have those satiric but entirely accurate flying monkey signs offend Queen Hillary, free speech be damned.

Pres. Lucifer's super PAC will fund the Hildebeast for president 2016

We’re at the beginning of 2014, a mid-term elections year, and two years away from the 2016 presidential elections.
Time to put on our battle armor, because the Devil never sleeps.
POS and Broomhilda
Philip Rucker and Matea Gold report for the Washington Post, Aug. 29, 2013: 

Priorities USA Action, the pro-Obama super PAC that led attacks against Republican Mitt Romney, is quietly positioning itself to ­become the main independent group funding a media campaign for Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, according to Democrats familiar with the plans.Strategists and donors to Priorities are in discussions about how best to help Clinton should she decide to run again for president, three Democrats familiar with the talks said.
The emergence of Priorities as a pro-Clinton ally introduces a heavyweight player into the constellation of super PACs and other independent groups already focused on the 2016 race. The move also shows how the political forces that helped reelect President Obama are increasingly gathering around Clinton and could make it more difficult for Vice President Biden or other Democratic hopefuls to compete for the nomination if she runs.
The people familiar with the plans said Priorities is developing a different mission than Ready for Hillary, a group started this year by ardent Clinton supporters. While Ready for Hillary is focused on grass-roots organizing, Priorities is planning to become what one of the Democrats called “the big money vehicle” that would produce and air expensive television advertisements.
The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plans for Priorities have not been finalized. Priorities strategist Paul Begala, a former Clinton White House adviser, declined to comment on behalf of the super PAC.
One of the Democrats said Priorities is not planning to become active in the race until Clinton “gives a definite nod that she’s going to run.” Conservative super PACs, such as the Stop Hillary PAC, have already jumped into the fray with attacks on the former U.S. senator and secretary of state.
Unlike federal candidates, super PACs can accept unlimited contributions as long as they do not coordinate their strategy directly with candidates or political parties.


Note: Anyone who believes that has a shoe-sized IQ.


Priorities, started by two former Obama White House aides (see my comment above), was widely regarded as one of the most effective independent groups in the 2012 presidential race. After a sluggish fundraising start, the super PAC ended up raising nearly $80 million — pouring it into a relentless barrage of swing-state television commercials that portrayed Romney as an elitist corporate raider.
Although Priorities spent far less than the pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Our Future, the group’s early and consistent focus on Romney’s record at Bain Capital put a negative cast on his business experience that proved hard for the GOP nominee to shake.
“They got off to a slow start, but they had a really strong finish, and ultimately they received a lot of credit for the negative mes­saging that was most effective against Romney,” said Phil Singer, a Democratic strategist who ran the war room for Clinton’s 2008 White House bid. “Priorities has been able to establish credibility.”
Refashioning itself as a pro-Clinton super PAC would be a natural fit for Priorities, which already has strong ties to both Bill and Hillary Clinton. Sean Sweeney, who was the top aide to then-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, helped launch Priorities with former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton and continues to steer it. Sweeney worked as a legislative assistant for then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, and people in Clinton’s orbit described Sweeney as a trusted loyalist.
Begala, who remains an adviser to Priorities, was a strategist on Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and served as a political counselor in his White House. Harold Ickes, the super PAC’s president, has been a top adviser to both Clintons, while Geoff Garin, who was the group’s pollster and strategic adviser last year, was a top strategist on Clinton’s 2008 campaign.


Note: But we are to believe Begala, Sweeney, Ickes, Garin, et al., don’t “coordinate directly with” the Clintons or with the DNC. Puleeze! 


Priorities also has relationships with some of the top Democratic givers, including DreamWorks Animation chief executive Jeffrey Katzenberg, one of its founding donors, who gave the super PAC $3 million. Katzenberg remains committed to working with the group, according to a person familiar with his plans.


Note: DreamWorks is a Hollywood movie studio founded by Katzenberg, director Steven Spielberg, and David Geffen.


Hedge fund manager James H. Simons, who contributed $5 million to Priorities and hosted a fundraiser for the group, is a longtime Clinton backer. Chicago media baron Fred Eychaner, who gave $4.5 million to Priorities, is one of the biggest supporters of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, having given the nonprofit organization more than $25 million.
Texas trial lawyers Steve and Amber Mostyn, who donated more than $3 million to Priorities, are actively supporting Clinton’s potential 2016 candidacy and are founding members of Ready for Hillary’s national finance council.
And Qualcomm founder Irwin M. Jacobs, who gave $2 million to Priorities last year, is an early Clinton backer. Jacobs and his wife, Joan, each gave the maximum $25,000 to Ready for Hillary.
Some fundraisers who bundled donations for Clinton’s 2008 White House bid, such as entertainment executive Haim Saban and producer Steven Spielberg, were also big donors to Priorities in 2012.
Since last year’s election, Priorities has been quiet about its plans. The super PAC made a few donations this spring, including $250,000 to the pro-Democratic Senate Majority PAC, which was used by the group in its campaign against Republican Gabriel Go­mez in the Massachusetts special Senate election, according to Senate Majority PAC spokesman Ty Matsdorf.
Priorities also gave $100,000 to Emily’s List, a group that works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, and has launched a “Madam President” campaign to lay the groundwork for Clinton.
As of the end of June, Priorities still had nearly $3.4 million in the bank left over from the 2012 cycle and no debt.
Priorities would play a different role from that of Ready for Hillary, which has stressed its focus on grass-roots organizing and has capped individual donations at $25,000. With a strong social media presence, its profile has risen rapidly, amassing more than 700,000 supporters on Facebook.
Several longtime Clinton aides are supporting Ready for Hillary; the group is being advised by Ickes and former Clinton White House political director Craig Smith, among others.
It remains unclear whether the super PACs would work together. Ready for Hillary officials declined to comment.
A Democrat familiar with Priorities’ plans said there is “a lot of chaos right now” among the party’s operative class to get in place to help a possible Clinton campaign.
“It’s like a bunch of kids under the hoop trying to get the ball, and everybody’s jockeying for position and nobody’s shot the ball yet,” the person said.
