While the tide has been turning as of late for conservatives in the culture, the left had, for the last few decades, truly won the culture war. If there’s one thing the left has down, using the news and entertainment media to blatantly push their narratives.

Now, Obama, the first true “pop culture” President, has secured his role in continuing to indoctrinate future generations for many, many years.

In a multi-year deal with Netflix, Michelle and Barak Obama are taking on a series of both scripted and documentary productions to no doubt perpetuate every pervasive leftist narrative of our time from the LGBTQ agenda to gun control to the destruction of sovereign borders.

The deal was announced via Twitter on Monday, The Hill reports.

 

“President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features,” Netflix wrote.

The Hill notes that neither Netflix nor the Obamas had any further details on the deal, but that the New York Times had initially reported on the inception of the agreement back in March.

“President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Eric Schultz, an Obama senior adviser, told the NYT at the time.

“Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories,” he continued.

Read: storytelling would be a fantastic way for the Obamas to continue to push the virtue-signaling, emotionally-driven identity politics that is the leftist narrative in 2018.

Before Obama even left office, there was discussion of his getting involved in media or digital communications when his time at the White House was through.

“That’s a media that connects us with people and stories we might otherwise never know,” he said of filmmaking in 2016. “And it puts us in the shoes of people potentially on the other side of the world or the neighborhood very different than the one we grew up in.”

The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti notes this is quite fitting for the former POTUS.

“Obama has…always wanted to be a Hollywood power player,” she says,” and this is his shot. Netflix has 125 million subscribers, and some of those are bound to be such die-hard Obama fans they’d watch anything he’d produce.”

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

Published

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…

Tuckers Crosses Blue Line, Attacks Capitol Police Officer Set to Testify at Capitol

The officer’s lawyers were quick to respond.

Tucker Carlson

It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game.  Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
