Hollywood Chamber Gives Anti-Trump Crowd an Answer on Walk of Fame Star. They Aren’t Going to Like it.

Published

President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has not fared well over the last several years, having been destroyed on multiple occasions by folks who are raging liberals that lack the basic ability to control their emotions and express their displeasure with the current administration like grown adults.

Just a few weeks ago a man took a pickaxe to the star and is now possibly facing up to three years in prison for his actions. Meanwhile, the rabid liberals in this country are demanding that Trump’s star be removed, which is something the Hollywood Chamber doesn’t seem too interested in doing.

Now the embattled star faces oblivion after the West Hollywood City Council unanimously approved a resolution this week requesting that Mayor Eric Garcetti, the Los Angeles City Council, and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce permanently remove the hated reminder of who is not their president. Mayor John Duran proudly announced the decision late Monday:

“Having a ‘star’ on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry, allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities,” reads the resolution, which fails to mention all of the other scandal-plagued celebrities whose stars they have no problem displaying.

The announcement inspired great joy from anti-Trumpers across the country, but a comment from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce following Duran’s announcement will likely not be so enthusiastically received.

“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark,” said Leron Gubler, the chamber’s president and CEO, the New York Post reports. “Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk.”

Well that certainly doesn’t seem like good news for all the whiners out there now does it?

Listen, it’s perfectly acceptable to dislike the current president, despite what his diehard supporters might say. After all, we had eight years of Obama and we certainly didn’t waste a single day without complaining about him. It’s only fair we extend the same courtesy.

However, there’s a right way to air grievances and a wrong way. Destroying public property, as you hopefully already guessed, falls most definitely under the wrong way.

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.
