Bryan Cranston: Another Hollyweird actor who “promises” to move out of the US if Trump is elected

Hollyweird actor Bryan Cranston

Hollyweird actor Bryan Cranston

From Daily Mail: He spent years as America’s lovable dad in Malcolm in the Middle before starring on one of the most-watched cable shows in the country – Breaking Bad. But Bryan Cranston could be saying farewell to the United States after the election results are announced. The 60-year-old actor has warned he will move to Canada if Donald Trump becomes the next president.

‘I would definitely move,’ he told The Bestseller Experiment podcast when asked what he would do if Trump was elected over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. ‘It’s not real to me that, that would happen. I hope to God it won’t,’ he added. ‘It wouldn’t be a vacation. I’d be an expatriate,’ Cranston added.

The Emmy-award winning actor is the latest Hollywood celebrity to pledge to leave the country if the Donald wins the election next week. He joins the likes of Clinton supporters Barbra Streisand, comedian Chelsea Handler and Girls creator and star Lena Dunham who have all said they will move abroad if the Republican presidential candidate wins the vote.

We will have to wait and see whether they will keep their promises.

But the opportunity to test them is becoming more and more likley as Trump closes ground on Clinton after the FBI announced it was re-opening the investigation into her email scandal. An ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll released Sunday showed Clinton ahead 46 per cent to 45 – narrower than Saturday’s 2-point Clinton edge.

Cranston, who more recently played Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson, has been an outspoken critic of Trump, branding him a ‘supreme narcissist’ and an ’emperor without any clothes’ following his controversial campaign.

The Emmy Award-winner said previously the billionaire tycoon’s rise in politics had ‘slapped’ Americans in the face and he would eventually be ‘swept to the side’. ‘I don’t want to join the vitriol that Donald Trump represents,’ Cranston told the Press Association. ‘He’s crude and crass and empty headed. If it weren’t serious, it would be laughable. Here we have a reality show, game show guy who’s now at the top of one of the two parties. That there are millions of people who are going to vote for him says something about, perhaps, disenfranchisement. People who are left out. People who don’t feel they are being listened to.’

Cranston revealed that he’s met both Trump and Clinton, but his facetime with the billionaire Republican was 20 years ago. ‘As he was saying hello it was like he was thinking of three or four or five other things, so it didn’t feel like he was actually present,’ Cranston recalled.

His meeting with Clinton and another with her husband were improvements. ‘She asked me questions and I gave my opinion. And I think that’s what I want, I want a president, quite frankly, with what our current president has shown – diplomacy, restraint, introspection, a maturity – he’s not any of those things,’ Cranston said, moving on to Trump.

‘He’s the antitheses of what you’d want a president to be as far as behavior and comportment,’ the actor added.  He added that university courses will be taught, books will be written and movies will be made in the future about Trump and this bizarre election.

Cranston, who is a Clinton supporter, said he did not care if his views cost him fans, but that it was his responsibility as a public figure to talk politics as well. ‘I am willing to take those risks, I don’t want to sit on the sidelines.

ego-everywhere

The socially-conscious Cranston joins the growing list of stars who have spoken up for Clinton which also includes Elizabeth Banks, actress America Ferrera and Scandal star Tony Goldwyn, all Hillary Clinton regulars on the campaign trail.

More than 100 celebrities have also signed on to a MoveOn.org campaign launched on Monday to urge voters not to put Trump in the White House, with Mark Ruffalo, Neil Patrick Harris, Shonda Rhimes, and Macklemore added to the mix.

Seattle political activist wants to put politicians in timeout

More like put those republicans in a timeout.

Kristin Finkbeiner: No inappropriate language allowed!

Kristin Finkbeiner: No inappropriate language allowed!

From MyNorthwest.com: It’s typical for candidates to fight over policy, their records – their personal lives certainly aren’t off limits. But this year the race for the nomination devolved all the way to name calling. You may recall Donald Trump’s “little Marco” and “lyin’ Ted” comments in press conferences and debates.

That is why Kristin Finkbeiner, northwest political activist and founder of the group MomsRising, is recommending for the very first time that parents not watch debates with their younger children.

“Maybe talk about the elections without watching what’s happening in real time,” Finkbeiner said. “Because, too often, it’s inappropriate behavior, inappropriate language. Unbelievable that it’s happening and that we have to say that, but it is, indeed, happening.”

One example: former GOP hopeful Marco Rubio’s comments about Donald Trump at a rally in February. “He’s always calling me ‘little Marco.’ And I’ll admit, he’s taller than me, he’s 6’2″, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who’s 5’2”,” Rubio said. “Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands.” After that, MomsRising was flooded with calls and emails with parents struggling to explain those comments to their children.

serious

“This is why it’s important not to stand back and sort of hide from the bullying language, but instead – as adults – to stand up and say this is not OK,” Finkbeiner said. “This is not OK for Washington, this is not OK for our nation, and this most certainly is not OK to have a presidential candidate, much less a president, who is running on a potty mouth.”

It’s important to note that Finkbeiner is a Democrat (married to a former Republican state lawmaker). Her organization, MomsRising, lobbies for a variety of family issues like paid maternity leave, sick and safe time, and equal pay.

And she has strong opinions. “If I was Donald Trump’s mom, I would put him in a time out,” Finkbeiner said. “He needs to take ten deep breaths and he needs to think about what he’s saying and who he’s saying it to and how it’s impacting other people. So it would a time out for the one and only Donald Trump if he were my child.”

But Finkbeiner says the adult trash talk this year transcends party lines. Even people within the same party who support different candidates are going after each other in ways she hasn’t seen in a lifetime of political work.

And youngsters are picking up on the tension. They might not understand exactly what’s going on, but they are hearing all the yelling. And the name calling. And children start to think that behavior is OK.

A survey of more than 2,000 teachers by the Southern Poverty Law Center showed a surge in bullying related to some of the topics in the election, such as race or political affiliation. Some local schools have reported the same issues, going so far as sending letters home asking parents to talk with their children about appropriate behavior.

So Finkbeiner has some strategies for parents to talk politics with children of all ages:

  • Have an open discussion with your child about what the candidates are talking about: their policies, backgrounds, etc.
  • Explain that people are really passionate about their opinions and are having a hard time talking about them without getting upset.
  • Be a good example. When we as adults hear someone say something we really disagree with, even if it sounds outlandish, it’s important to lead by example and approach that other person with respect.

Finkbeiner even has a handy list of phrases she uses in those situations – after taking some deep breaths:

“Calmly say – not angrily say – ‘really? That is not my experience.’ ‘What’s going on here?’” Finkbeiner suggests. “Or, ‘that’s not necessary.’ Or, ‘why are you doing this?’ Or even: ‘where are you coming from with that perspective?’” And if the other person is agitated, don’t react in the same way.

This election is also different from past years in that children and adults alike can’t escape the heat at home because election talk now lives 24 hours a day online.

Finkbeiner has suggestions for how to deal with that too: only write online what you’d say to someone’s face, and have “the talk” with your children about trolls – when it’s appropriate to engage or let it go.

“Maintaining that calm, sharing your perspective, possibly including some facts and some links, but not resorting to name calling,” Finkbeiner said. “I think it’s very important that we rise above just flat out name calling and try to move our conversation – on whatever platform – to a deeper level about the policies we’re talking about, and not calling names.”

In 2006, Finkbeiner co-authored a book, The Motherhood Manifesto, with MomsRising co-founder and board President Joan Blades. Blades co-founded MoveOn.org which George Soros supports.

Here’s some of Kristin’s tweets, which include no bullying language whatsoever…

Doesn’t sound like very appropriate language to me.

New breed of crisis actors: Fake political protesters

Americans didn’t know about a curious species of fakery called Crisis Actors until the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook false-flag shooting massacre. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors“)

Located in Denver, Colorado, a business that calls itself VisionBox Crisis Actors provides professionals (“trained players and actors”) who impersonate real-life people in simulations of mass casualty events, such as government drills, shootings and bombings, to help “schools and first responders create realistic drills, full-scale exercises, high-fidelity simulations, and interactive 3D films.” As an Oct. 31, 2012 feature story on the Crisis Actors website which I found on January 1, 2013, once boasted:

A new group of actors is now available nationwide for active shooter drills and mall shooting full-scale exercises, announced Visionbox, Denver’s leading professional actors studio.

Visionbox Crisis Actors are trained in criminal and victim behavior, and bring intense realism to simulated mass casualty incidents in public places.

The actors’ stage acting experience, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary American theater, enables them to “stay in character” throughout an exercise, and improvise scenes of extreme stress while strictly following official exercise scenarios. […]

Visionbox Crisis Actors can also play the role of citizens calling 911 or mall management, or posting comments on social media websites.

For more, see my post “Professional crisis actors simulate mass casualty events“.

Curiously, since the phenomenon of crisis actors was uncovered after the Sandy Hook false-flag, crisis actors seem to have gone underground. VisionBox revised its website, removing any mention of crisis actors. But this video that was uploaded to YouTube on Dec. 23, 2012, says the same things about VisionBox which I had reported:

Professor James Tracy also recently discovered that Crisisactors.org, the website established to represent the collaboration between the Visionbox professional actors studio and FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute, went dormant after August 2014. (See “Where Have All the Crisis Actors Gone?“)

To add to the insanity, there are even amputee crisis actors, such as those from a business called Amputees in Action, which provides “trained professional amputee actors” who promise to “remain in character” “for the film and screen industries and for emergency and military services training simulations” with “special effects (SFX) make-up, moulage and prosthetic artists use cutting edge technology to enhance and extend the appearance and function of limb-loss scenarios.” (For more, see my post ““)

BaumanAlleged victim of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Jeff Bauman, is an example of an amputee crisis actor. See the reasons why in “Hollywood producer Nathan Folks says Boston Bombing’s a false flag”.

Now add fake political protests and protesters to the things that crisis actors do.

Jamie Taete reports for Vice, Aug. 6, 2013, that Crowds on Demand is a company that will organize a crowd for you, on demand. The crowd can be fake fans for some celebrity or aspiring celebrity, or fake protesters for a cause.

Since the company’s fake fan events are “super secret,” Taete attended instead “a fake protest” called “Purge Day USA” (to purge mental health problems) which the company organized in Los Angeles “in coordination with a charity” to “raise awareness about mental health issues”. Here’s a photo of the fake protesters:

fake protesters of Crowds in Demand in Los Angeles

Crowds on Demand’s founder and CEO Adam Swart said that there were about 20 protesters at the fake protest and all of them were “provided by me”. The fake protesters were paid $15 an hour. Swart charges “a couple thousand dollars” to organize a fake protest with about 20 actors, but he gives discounts to charities.

To critics who say Crowds on Demand is unethical, Swart, who is only 24 years old , openly and brazenly admits: “Is it misleading? Yes. That’s the idea.”

Adam Swart

A more recent example of fake protesters is an ad on Craig’s List soliciting actors to impersonate protesters at Trump rallies.

As reported by ZeroHedge on March 30, 2016, the ad was placed by “I’m feelin’ the Bern” Bernie Sanders supporters who promise to provide shuttle buses, parking, and protest signs, as well as $15/hour to the actors. Here’s a screenshot of the Craig’s List ad:

Bernie ad for paid anti-Trump protesters

The above ad has since been removed by its author, but the Daily Caller points out the ad is part of a recurring pattern of anti-Trump Craigslist ads soliciting and paying people to protest at Trump rallies. But Daily Caller claims that the fake protesters are hired not by Sanders, but by Hillary Clinton’s people, and paid for by the usual suspects George Soros, MoveOn.org, and Progressive Auto Insurance‘s Jonathan Lewis:

The Establishment on both the left and the right, who want to disenfranchise the millions of Republican voters who support Donald Trump, have blamed the staged riots near Trump rallies on Trump or on Bernie Sanders. That’s like blaming the Russians for the Reichstag Fire. Bernie has little to do with these manufactured protests. This is a Clinton operation, a faux protest.

False flag operations have long been common in politics, but these riots are poisonous to the electorate, intentionally designed to turn violent and stifle free speech.

This free speech-busting goon squad operation is directed by supporters of Hillary Clinton. It is paid for mostly by George Soros and MoveOn.org and pushed by David Brock at Media Matters for America. It’s also funded by reclusive billionaire Jonathan Lewis, who was identified by the Miami New Times as a “mystery man.” He inherited roughly a billion dollars from his father Peter Lewis (founder of Progressive Insurance Company).

A march and demonstration against Trump at Trump Tower essentially fizzled Saturday when only 500 “protesters” of the promised 5000 showed up. Infiltrating the crowd, I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement. Soap was definitely in short supply in this crowd. Several admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.

Hillary understands that Trump would lose the votes of certain establishment Republicans if he were the nominee. On the other hand, it doesn’t matter, because of his crossover outreach. In Michigan, Democrats and independents who have lost their jobs because of disastrous globalist trade deals like NAFTA are lining up to vote for Donald.

And so, when you see an anti-Trump protest or another mass shooting, don’t believe your eyes. The “protesters” and “victims” — including amputees! — you see may just be acting.

Leftist radio talker wants to behead Tea Partiers

A delegate to the Democratic National Convention, Julia Rodriguez, openly threatened to kill Mitt Romney.

A week before the Nov. 6 presidential election, MoveOn.org and Michael Moore produced a video of senior citizens in Rosebud Nursing Home, in which a 97-year-old woman vowed: “We’ll burn this motherfucker down” if Romney’s elected.

That video was followed by a murderous “Get Out the Vote” ad released by a Democrat activist website, RepublicanZombieDefense.com, in which Obama supporters use garden shears, chainsaws, machine guns, and grenades to maim, behead, and explode Romney supporters who are portrayed as brain-dead zombies.

Even after they “won” the 2012 presidential election, Demonrats are still seething with murderous rage.

The latest threat of violence from the Left is from Mike Malloy, the host of what he calls a “Progressive” radio show that airs 9-mid ET, Mon-Fri.

On his show of November 26, 2012, Malloy threatened to behead Tea Partiers. This is what he said:

“These Teabag bastards. I just wish they’d all go away, or in Passover, I just wish there was an angel of the lord that would pass over and, instead of killing the first born in all the households of Egypt, just wipe off all the teabaggers. You know, the terrible swift sword. Just shwoosht, shwoosht, shwoosht, lob their heads off!”

97-y-o woman: “We’ll burn this motherfucker down” if Romney’s elected

The Left are masters at deception and propaganda.

America’s national debt is now over $16 TRILLION. But whenever there’s talk of trimming the morbidly obese Big Government, the Left immediately troop out little kiddies and old people to tug at our heart strings.

Don’t fall for it!

But this election is different.

The Left no longer bother to keep their masks on. They no longer troop out cute little kiddies and sweet old people. Instead, the kiddies are now “Children of the Corn” creepy, and the old people are demonic.

Yesterday, our LTG posted the creepy “Children of the Corn” video produced by the creepy Jeff Goodby:

Jeff Goodby

And here’s the Rosebud Nursing Home demonic old people video, produced by the morbidly obese Michael Moore for the so-Left-they’re-commies MoveOn.org:

These are not your sweet little ol’ grannies and grandpas. Just listen to what 97-year-old Marie says:

“I was born in 1915, during World War I. My first vote was in 1940 for Franklin D. Roosevelt and I have not missed an election since. And I want the Republican Party to know, if your voters suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this motherfucker down.”

Marie

You heard it.

Evil Marie issued this threat to America: If Gov. Mitt Romney wins the presidency,

“We will burn this motherfucker down.”

Still wondering if this political election isn’t a spiritual war?

“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Ephesians (6:10-16)

Obamabots can’t spell

In June 1992, GOP vice presidential candidate and then-U.S. senator Dan Quayle flubbed the spelling of “potato” at a New Jersey elementary school (he said it’s spelt “potatoe”). For that, he was called stupid by the MSM — a canard that stuck to Quayle for the entire four years of his vice presidency (19889-1993) and after.

If it were not for WND and conservative bloggers, we’d never know about two recent whoppers made by Obamabots which dwarf Quayle’s mistake.

At a campaign rally on August 24, 2012, Mitt Romney made a quip about not needing to show his birth certificate. The Obama campaign responded by accusing Romney of having joined “the birthers”.

A day later, as reported by WND, at a Romney-Ryan rally in Powell, Ohio,  MoveOn.org tried to make political points by flying an airplane over the  rally, pulling a banner. Alas, the government-school educated Obamabots at MoveOn.org failed to do a spell-check before take-off.

This is what the banner said:

It’s THAN, not THEN, idiots!

The blundered banner comes in the same week the POS and three Obamabots, acting as human letters, YMCA-style, misspelled “Ohio” as “Oiho”.

Back to Dan Quayle: According to the New York Times and Quayle’s memoirs, he was relying on cards provided by the Munoz Rivera Elementary School, which included the misspelling. Quayle said he was uncomfortable with the version he gave, but did so because he decided to trust the school’s incorrect written materials.

But that doesn’t matter to the media. Mark my words: they’ll trot out the potato-potatoe incident when they write Dan Quayle’s obituary.

61% in FoxNews Poll Agree With “Occupy Wall Street”

The waking-up news this morning is that the Occupy Wall Street movement, now entering its 4th week, has spread to cities across the United States and across the world.

The usual (left-wing) suspects of unions (SEIU, teachers, writers) and multibillionaire George Soros’ MoveOn.org are participating in it. [Go here for the list of some of the participants.]

Multimillionaire hypocrite Nancy Pelosi called the TEA Party “neo-Nazi” “racists” and an “astroturf” (fake) movement. But she approves of the Occupy movement, telling ABCNews yesterday, “I support the message to the establishment, whether it’s Wall Street or the political establishment approve of it.”

Commie actor Danny Glover called for more “warriors” to join Occupy L.A.:

But if we go by the results of an unscientific FoxNews poll, a majority of Americans say they share the views of the Occupy movement.

The poll asks you to choose among 4 responses:

  • Maybe. I am not even sure what they want.
  • No. They have no idea how jobs are created or how a free enterprise system works.
  • Yes. These folks are right about corporate greed and what’s happening to the little guy.
  • Other (post a comment).

When I voted at 3:30am, west coast time, Monday, Oct. 10, 2011, these were the results:

Of a total of 132,136 votes:

  • Maybe 2.77%
  • No 35.46%
  • Yes 60.95%
  • Other 0.82%

Don’t let the Occupy movement speak for you. CLICK HERE to vote in the poll!
