Actor James Woods’ Liberal Talent Agent Drops Bad News on Him on Independence Day

Published

on

Actor James Woods is one of the few folks in the entertainment industry who is openly conservative and completely unashamed to speak out against the abuses of big government and the wackadoo culture that is spreading across our country.

However, given the pervasive existence of progressive thought in Hollywood, it’s not all that shocking to discover that Woods was blacklisted and skipped over for acting works simply because of his political views. This was somewhat to be expected.

Well, sadly, that doesn’t appear to be the end of the persecution, as Woods received an email from the talent agency that represents him, on the Fourth of July, stating that they were feeling “patriotic” and were letting him go.

The Oscar-nominated actor shared a screenshot of the email with the subject line “Well…” on his personal Twitter account Thursday.

The talent agent, Ken Kaplan, said that he’d come to the decision to no longer represent the outspoken conservative star because he was “feeling patriotic.”

“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” Kaplan wrote. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I can go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

“Dear Ken, I don’t actually. I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual,” Woods replied.

“Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf. Be well.”

While Kaplan did not explicitly say in the email that his decision to sever ties was over Woods’ personal politics, it does come after the 71-year-old actor revealed last October that he was retiring because he was “blacklisted” from Hollywood due to his conservative views.

“While #Liberals scream about the 50’s blacklist, my #Repub actor friends are terrified of losing their ability to provide for their families,” he once tweeted.

What’s truly hilarious about Hollywood is how hypocritical and borderline schizophrenic it is. On the one hand, they often claim that conservatives and folks on the right want to silence their voices and stop them from standing for what’s right — in their own eyes that is — making all kinds of movies about sticking it to the man.

In reality, conservatives don’t care if the left speaks their mind or not, believing they have the right to do so if they choose, it’s the left who has become the man, seeking to silence the voices of those who disagree with them.

If it wasn’t so sad and pathetic, it’d almost be funny.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
