An interesting report that paints a clearer picture…

It’s not enough that liberal celebrities get political during award shows. Now, it appears they are farming out their speeches to consulting firms that are being run by the likes of former Obama lackeys.

Is there no such thing as an original thought, these days? If Hollywood studios aren’t producing remake after remake, their leading players are simply parroting MSNBC talking points to millions of uninformed followers via social media.

This is the world we now live in.

If the acceptance speeches at Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony seemed scripted, it’s because, it seems, they are. According to a report from New York Magazine, Hollywood actors and actresses are now hiring out political speechwriters to pen their thirty-second missives so that they don’t miss an opportunity to sneak in some political or cultural commentary.

Vulture Magazine reports that celebrities, including, supposedly, now-Oscar winner Brad Pitt — who took home a statuette Sunday night for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” — are farming out their speechwriting to firms like Fenway Strategies, run by former speechwriters for President Barack Obama, hoping that ghostwriters can improve their pithiness and amp up their wit.

How is it that Dems like Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders “fight for” the poorest Americans while knowing they have multiple millions in the bank?

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.
