Same ol’ shtick: Michael Moore disses Trump, Hillary Clinton in new broadway show

response to Michael Moore

Must suck to be so bitter that your whole career revolves around criticism of a country and its policies that has made you filthy rich. Ain’t America grand!

From MSN: Michael Moore has Trump on the brain, and the Oscar-winning documentarian and liberal scourge unleashed his animus on the new president on Friday in the first public performance of his one-man Broadway debut, “The Terms of My Surrender.”

“I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is the president — and I’m not leaving,” Moore said near the end of his two-hour plus show, which was part autobiography, part counseling session to like-minded urban liberals and part political rally and call to action.

At one point, Moore teased a run for president in 2020, with a typically satirical edge. “I really will shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue,” Moore said, before adding in reference to Trump’s efforts to avoid military service in Vietnam, “He got five deferments because he wouldn’t shoot anyone.”

He offered campaign pledges that mixed the silly (“free HBO for all”) with the edgy (“If elected, there will be no low-flow showerheads; I don’t want to feel like I’m being peed on by a 12-year-old in the presidential suite of the Moscow Hilton”).

He offered praise for Sen. John McCain’s return to Washington after brain surgery and voting to block the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. “Give the other Republican senators that surgery!” he quipped.

Moore did not spare Democrats — and Hillary Clinton in particular — from his jabs. “We have to admit that Trump outsmarted us,” Moore said. “He was crazy enough to know where the state of Wisconsin is — and to go there.”

He even made a joke suggesting the former Secretary of State was a lesbian — which he quickly tried to re-contextualize. He noted that a man arrested for attempting to blow up Moore’s Michigan home had kept a diary with a kill list that started with Moore and included Janet Reno, Rosie O’Donnell and Hillary Clinton.

“How did I get on the lesbian list?” he quipped, then added, “By the way, with Hillary, that’s the way the right wing talks about her.” (For the record, Bill Clinton-era Attorney General Janet Reno, who died in 2016, also denied that she was gay or bisexual.)

Moore, who recently launched a website dubbed TrumpiLeaks intended as a clearinghouse for whistleblowers and a new nonfiction film for The Weinstein Company titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” (for the date of Trump’s election win last fall), said that he’s offered a standing invitation to Trump to attend his show — a box seat with stars-and-stripes bunting in front of it sat empty through the performance.

He also shared that he and Trump shared an agent — CAA’s Ari Emmanuel — and claimed to have overheard a phone call from Trump to Emmanuel in which the “Celebrity Apprentice” star suggested announcing a run for president as a gambit to get a better salary for the NBC reality show — or a counter-offer from another network.

“He just found out that NBC was paying the hosts of other reality shows more than him, like Gwen Stefani on ‘The Voice,'” Moore claimed. According to Moore, Trump told his agent: “I’ve been thinking about running for president. The networks would see how hugely popular I am.”

“Even when he was running, didn’t you feel, Does he want this job?” Moore asked. “Does he want to live in a majority-black city? The penthouse of the White House is the second floor.”

In one of his most provocative bits, Moore played an audio clip from 2005 in which conservative radio host Glenn Beck speculated about killing Moore: “I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it.”

Moore then pretended to leave a voicemail message for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo using Beck’s scripted threat virtually word for word. “Could I just call any public person with these threats the way Glenn Beck did?” he asked. “I don’t think I would get away with it.”

The show, directed by Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”) and produced by IMG Original Content and Carole Shorenstein Hays, will have an official opening on August 10 and run for 12 weeks. 101 Production is exec producing.

Moore’s credits include directing “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the highest-grossing documentary of all time, as well as “Bowling for Columbine,” which earned an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Other films include “Sicko,” “Roger & Me” and “Where to Invade Next.”

He also created the television series “TV Nation” and “The Awful Truth,” and has written eight books which have all made the best-seller list.

Last October, Moore dropped a film about Trump titled “Michael Moore in TrumpLand” which screened for the first time in New York City’s IFC Center that month.

Alec Baldwin defends Kathy Griffin in the most eloquent way: “F**k them all”

Of course he does.

From Daily Mail UK: Alec Baldwin has defended Kathy Griffin in a series of tweets and insists that ‘no one’ believed she wanted to threaten President Trump. Baldwin labelled Trump a ‘senile idiot’ in his social media rant and called on the comedian to ignore the president and his family.

The first family have publicly expressed their distaste for the sickening picture of Griffin holding a mock of Trump’s severed head.

But Baldwin, who regularly does an impression of The Donald on Saturday Night Live, told Griffin: ‘F*** them all’. 

‘Dear Kathy Griffin, Kathy….baby…I’ve been there,’ his first post about the embattled comedian read.

And then referencing the moment he ranted on Conan’s show in 1998, asking for a Republican member of Congress to be stoned he continued: ‘The whole Henry Hyde thing [with] Conan, where we bring out an oxygen mask at the end? A joke. That’s what I thought. That’s what we intended. No one walked out of the studio and said, “No! We’re serious!” No one,”.

‘But all your gutless, weasels in the GOP insisted that I actually threatened Hyde.’

The comedian didn’t mince his words when he advised Griffin to ditch the negative comments she’d received from her critics. ‘They played the victim beautifully. Kathy…f*** them. F*** them all. [no one] believes [you] meant [to] threaten Trump,’ Baldwin posted.

He ended his Twitter rant with an insult to the president ,referencing Trump’s contentious trip to Europe, during which he reportedly alienated US allies in the region: ‘Trump is such a senile idiot, all he has is Twitter fights. ignore him. Like the leaders of all the other countries in the world. Ignore him.’

The 59-year-old is among a handful of stars  – including Jamie Foxx, Larry King, Rosie O’Donnell – who have come out in support of Griffin since the picture – taken by provocative photographer Tyler Shields – went viral.

Retired host Larry King even expressed his disappointment that CNN had fired Griffin because of the picture.  ‘She’s my friend, she apologized, let it go,’ King told TMZ. ‘I wouldn’t have fired her, Ted Turner wouldn’t have fired her. They’re jumping all over her now… I would have kept her. It was a terrible mistake, no one feels sorrier than her, she apologized. CNN shouldn’t have let her go.’

Rosie O’Donnell – who has been at the receiving end of Trump’s insults – also tweeted last Wednesday, agreeing with comedian Martin Laurence who said Griffin didn’t need to apologize: ‘ I agree Laurence, she apologized right away – she made a mistake and owned up to it – more than we can say for him. ‘

These words of support from celebrities may be a silver lining as Griffin has faced a barrage of negative comments and has even lost many of her sponsors.

One of Griffin’s first critics came from Donald Trump Jr., who called on the star to be fired from CNN. ‘Dear CNN,’ his post last Tuesday read. ‘ I must have missed your statement banning your commentator Kathy Griffin from future shows. Please resend. Thx.’

Griffin – who is apparently being investigated by the Secret Service –  held a tear-filled press conference on Saturday. While she said she felt bullied by Trump and his family, she promised not to ‘lay down’.

‘I’m not for everybody,’ admitted Griffin. ‘I am barely an acquired taste frankly. I’ve had everybody turn on me. And I just want to make people laugh.’

That being said, Griffin declared: ‘I am not laying down for this guy.’

President Trump nixes Paris Climate Agreement; Hollyweird libtards’ & globalists’ heads explode

leocryingdeparted

No word on whether or not they will give up using private jets. Don’t hold your breath.

(1) Hollyweirdos:

From Hollywood Reporter: On Thursday, President Donald Trump, as expected, announced his plans to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement. While reports since Wednesday had said Trump was planning to leave the deal, reached by former President Barack Obama in 2015, it wasn’t official until Thursday afternoon’s Rose Garden ceremony.

Many Hollywood stars, politicians and other notable figures had already weighed in on Trump’s expected move, criticizing the president for his anticipated action. When it was made official, though, more notables quickly took to Twitter to respond, as Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Adam Schiff bashed the Trump’s decision.

Obama swiftly released a statement, reading in part: “A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children. … The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in job and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we got.”

Hollywood figures like Leonardo DiCaprio, George Takei, Chelsea Handler and Leslye Headland responded with jokes and harsh criticism of the president’s announcement.

“Trump is having the U.S. pull out of the Paris Climate Accord,” Takei wrote. “Too bad someone didn’t tell his father that he shoulda pulled out, too.”

The departure is a major blow to worldwide efforts to combat climate change and a significant break with U.S. allies abroad. Trump said the U.S. would try to negotiate re-entry on better terms.

Others tweeted the following:

  • Leonardo – I always fly private carriers – DiCaprio: Today, our planet suffered. It’s more important than ever to take action.
  • Chelsea Handler: I’m guessing that Donald Trump doesn’t see the irony in making his announcement to leave the Paris Agreement while standing in a garden.
  • Bette Midler: There has never in US history been such a destructive megalomaniac in the WH. Thank you to US press and other numbskulls who put him there.
  • John Legend: We have to stop this asshole. This is urgent. You have to vote in 2018.
  • Rosie O’Donnell: FIRE SCOTT PRUITT – EPA HEAD – DEAR GOD THIS IS FUCKING INSANE
  • Michael Moore: USA to Earth: FUCK YOU
  • Montel Williams: Trump is stone cold stupid. That’s right @realDonaldTrump is an intellectually impotent little man who needs to b impeached

Read about all the meltdowns here.

And if we are judged by the enemies we have, then Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. from the Paris agreement is a wise one, as the heads of non-Hollyweird globalists explode at the news:

(2) Pope Francis’ head explodes:

Pope Francis openly supports the Paris deal so much that he timed the release of his document on the environment, Laudato Si’, to influence the outcome.

Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, is quoted by the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that if Trump takes the United States out of the Paris deal, “it would be a disaster for everyone” and a “slap in the face for the Vatican.”

(3) EU heads explode:

In a speech in Berlin, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the unelected European Commission, lectured Trump like he’s an idiot. Juncker said Trump doesn’t understand the treaty and that it would take “three to four years” to leave the agreement — “No, that’s not how it works! The Americans can’t just leave! So this notion, I am Trump, I am American, American first and I’m going to get out of it – that won’t happen.” (InfoWars)

In a joint statement yesterday, Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron threatened that the Paris Agreement is “irreversible and . . . cannot be renegotiated.”

Having anticipated the EU’s reaction, note that President Trump in his speech said that “we will see if we can [renegotiate] make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine.”

(4) Bilderberg Elite’s heads explode:

As reported by InfoWars‘ Paul Joseph Watson:

Sources close to the elitist Bilderberg Group conference [meeting this week] tell Infowars that globalists see their agenda as being in “deep trouble” and that Donald Trump poses a “dangerous” risk to the international order and must be brought to heel or turfed out of office….

The reason that three members of the Trump administration – HR McMaster, Wilbur Ross and Chris Liddell have been invited to attend this year’s meeting in Chantilly, Virginia is that Bilderberg thinks there is still a chance to put pressure on Trump to force him to back down on his America-first agenda.

With the U.S. about to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, Trump is “dangerously obsessed” with derailing the current world order, according to one Bilderberger, a fear that has intensified since Trump chided world leaders at the G7 summit last week.

Notable among this year’s Bilderberg U.S. attendees are Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton (R) — elected in 2015 and, at 40 years old, the Senate’s youngest member; South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO); longtime Bilderberger Henry Kissinger; Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D); ex-CIA Director David Petraeus; tech billionaire Peter Thiel; and IMF head Christine Lagarde. For the full list of 2017 Bilderberg attendants, click here.

G0, Trump!

Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter Chelsea tells how the former View host threatened her

Major drama for this family…

From Daily Mail: Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter is haunted by an episode with her ‘drunk’ mother during which the actress locked the teen in her bedroom, tried to pull off her clothes to see her tattoo, threatened to hit her with an empty wine bottle and told her she could ‘kill her’.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Chelsea O’Donnell says the May 2015 attack was the beginning of two years of ups and downs with her mother which has culminated in an estrangement she now feels is irreparable.

Chelsea also revealed that she and boyfriend Nick Alliegro, 31, secretly got married last July after she found out she was pregnant.

But the newlyweds suffered a devastating blow weeks later when Chelsea had a miscarriage.

‘I told Rosie about the miscarriage but she never seemed to care or even asked any questions, like it didn’t matter to her,’ Nick told DailyMail.com.

Chelsea, who was adopted by O’Donnell when she was a baby, says problems with her mother began shortly before her 18th birthday in August 2015. Three months earlier, she had the word ‘Breathe’ tattooed on her side. O’Donnell was incensed.

‘It was pretty late at night,’ Chelsea said. ‘A couple of weeks prior, I had gotten a tattoo. She [O’Donnell] had spyware on my phone so she could see pretty much everything I did.

‘She called me into her room and asked me about the tattoo. I denied it. ‘She asked me to take off my clothes – she didn’t know where it was – to show her and I refused.

‘She picked up a wine bottle and started chasing me, trying to take off my clothes. 

‘She told me if I didn’t show her, if I tried to leave, that she would hit me with the wine bottle, call the police and tell them that I had attacked her.

‘She was holding it above her head and coming after me in her room. She kept trying to run after me and saying that if she really wanted to she could kill me, she’s that strong.

‘She ended up pulling my shirt up and seeing it. Then I left. I didn’t see her for the rest of the night.’

Chelsea said that the wine bottle was in O’Donnell’s room ‘because she was drinking as she did frequently’.

The TV star, 55, didn’t hit her but ‘she came really close,’ Chelsea said. The teen didn’t go to the hospital with injuries nor did she contact the police.

‘I felt it was her word against mine and why wouldn’t they believe her over me?’ Chelsea said. 

‘I didn’t go to the police because of who she is. She would have tried to say I was crazy and they just wouldn’t believe me.’

Hollywood Hypocrisy: Leftist “celebrities” who send their sons to military schools

Leftwing Hollyweirdos have only contempt and hatred for what’s best about the United States — the Founding Fathers and their ideological legacy; capitalism and the free market that foster economic prosperity everywhere in the world, including countries like China which, ironically, are ruled by the communist party; and the best and most powerful military in the world.

And yet, when they find themselves unable to cope with unruly and out-of-control sons, guess where the “celebrities” send them!

To the “oppressive” military schools and academies to learn self-discipline and order.

What rank hypocrites!

Rosie O’Donnell

Parker & Rose O'DonnellParker & Rosie O’Donnell

O’Donnell’s adopted son Parker made the decision to go to military school on his own, to the dismay and in spite of his America-hating mom. O’Donnell said:

“How do you really piss off your really left wing and peace-loving mother? You join the military. Parker was like, ‘Mother, I’d like to serve the Nation.’ I’m like crying, ‘Serve me instead!’ … He chose on his own. He actually begged to go to a military academy. And I was like two years of ‘No way.’ Truth is, since he was a little boy, that’s his area of interest. The same way I love Streisand and Bette Midler and entertainment, he can tell you any general in any war, what kind of tanks they had, what the battles were like. So I finally gave in and truthfully, he’s excelling and he’s very happy.

Cher

Cher & Elijah Blue AllmanCher & Elijah Blue Allman

From an account in the National Enquirer:

Elijah Blue Allman is the son of Cher and rocker Gregg Allman. Elijah and Cher weren’t close as he grew up. After attending boarding schools and military school, Elijah formed a rock band but soon got hooked on smoking heroin, painkillers, and alcohol. He’s been in and out of rehab “several times” but claims to have last used heroin in autumn 2008.

Elijah and Cher are presently estranged from and not even speaking to each other. Cher refused to even attend her son’s recent wedding.

Madonna

Rocco Richie & MadonnaRocco Ritchie & Madonna

Madonna reportedly is considering sending her “wild-child son,” Rocco, to military school after he was snapped brandishing a booze bottle.

Madonna’s ex, British director Guy Ritchie, reportedly hit the roof when Madonna posted a photo on social media of their 13-year-old son Rocco holding a gin bottle next to friends holding vodka bottles. An “insider” says Guy thinks Rocco is completely out of control, but Madonna was at her wits’ end over how to rein him in.

Knowing that Rosie O’Donnell had some problems with her kids, Madonna called Rosie for advice. Rosie told Madonna she’d sent her eldest, 18-year-old son Parker, to Valley Forge Military Academy for high school, and it was the smartest move she’d ever made, according to the source. Parker went from being sullen and belligerent to respectful and motivated in no time.

The insider says, “Madonna told Guy that Rosie suggested sending Rocco to military school, and he’s all for it. He’s fed up with Madonna’s lackadaisical parenting style and wants Rocco to have more structure.”

This is how Israel deals with school shootings

After the terrible shooting massacre of 20 little children, ages 6 to 7, and 6 adults nearly two weeks ago in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Conn., there is the predictable cacophony of “Gun Control!” from the Left.

Even worse is the scapegoating of law-abiding gun owners who have committed no crime. The National Rifle Association (RFA) and its members are not just vilified, but death wishes were heaped on them by CSI star Marg Helgenberger and U. of Rhode Island history professor Erik Loomis. The irony of anti-gun advocates wishing death for others, all under the guise of caring about life, is lost on the ilk of Helgenberger and Loomis.

Joseph Farah of WND points out that Israel, a nation surrounded by madmen who seek to kill innocent Jewish children any way they can, has rarely seen the kinds of mayhem America witnessed in Newtown, Conn.

This is why.

Israel teacher_with_rifle

Israel protects its children with armed guards and armed teachers in its schools.

Writing in the Wall St. Journal, Massad Ayoob, director of the Lethal Force Institute in Concord, N.H., which trains police officers and military personnel in self-defense techniques, echoes Farah’s message:

In Israel armed teachers are common, and terrorist attacks at schools nonexistent. Indeed, it was only during a 1997 visit by Israeli schoolgirls to the ‘Island of Peace’ along the Jordanian border, in which the teachers had been asked to leave their weapons behind, that an Arab gunman took advantage of an easy opportunity to open fire, killing seven children and wounding another six.”

Ayoob proposes the Israeli model for U.S. schools, a stance supported by Texas governor Rick Perry. Ayoob writes:

“[In the United States] all adult employees of the school know how to operate fire extinguishers and supervise an orderly fire drill. A school nurse is generally on hand, but virtually all teachers and school administrators have learned basic first aid and CPR. It is but a small step from here to train school personnel in the use of firearms, and to arm at least some of them.

For the concept to work, armed teachers would have to be volunteers who pass strict psychological testing, and go through at least as much training in firearms and the judicious use of deadly force as current laws demand of armed security guards. The weapons would have to be discreetly concealed, and which personnel are armed should be revealed only on a need-to-know basis.”

Despite Obama’s decrying of gun violence, since he’s entered the White House, prosecutions for breaking gun laws have diminished sharply — a drop of 40% since the zenith reached under George W. Bush, which was 11,000.

As for the anti-gun ownership elites on the Left, their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Both Senators Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) not only carry concealed weapons, they are also protected by armed police escorts. The obnoxious loudmouth “entertainer” Rosie O’Donnell, who once ran roughshod over conservative actor Tom Selleck because of his stance supporting the Second Amendment, has three armed bodyguards to protect her, her wife and her children. (For more, see “Second Amendment Hypocrites.”)

Michael Moore, who supports stricter gun-control laws, including a ban on automatic and semiautomatic weapons and magazine clips that hold more than seven rounds, is also a hypocrite. In one of his docufictions, “Bowling for Columbine,” Moore criticizes America’s “culture of fear” and its obsession with guns. But it turns out Moore has armed protection from a personal body guard. America found that out only when the body guard was arrested in January 2005 in New York’s JFK airport for carrying — you guessed it — a firearm that was unlicensed for New York.

Yup, like O’Donnell, Feinstein, and Schumer, Moore also is protected by armed guards. But they don’t want YOU, who don’t have the millions of bucks they have to hire armed guards, to own guns to protect yourself.

Then there’s anti-gun Obama and NBC’s David Gregory, who send their kids to the private, self-described “highly selective” Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, where annual tuition is around $35,000 (not including fees and textbooks) and where the children are protected by 11 armed guards, with a 12th on the way.

For the Left, their motto is ever “Do as I say, not as I do”.

By the way, Ayoob wrote his essay after the 1999 Columbine High School massacre. If America had heeded his advice of arming school teachers, the Sandy Hook tragedy might have been averted.
