Hollywood Legend Clint Eastwood Disappoints Conservatives, Endorses Michael Bloomberg

Oh, wow! Who saw this coming?

It looks like Judge Judy isn’t the only famous celebrity backing 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg. Conservatives will be disheartened to learn that Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood has also decided to throw his weight behind the former New York City mayor.

Considering Eastwood’s disdain for Barack Obama, this move seems slightly odd. But this is America, after all. Clint can support whoever he pleases. Here’s the scoop, from Wall Street Journal:

As for the domestic political scene, Mr. Eastwood seems disheartened. “The politics has gotten so ornery,” he says, hunching his shoulders in resignation. He approves of “certain things that Trump’s done” but wishes the president would act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names. I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level.” As he drives me back to my hotel, he expresses an affinity for another former mayor: “The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there.”

Hollywood has become a central hub of left-wing Democrat Party activity, so it’s not exactly a shock when a major actor or celebrity comes out and endorses a Democrat candidate for president.

In fact, it would be shocking to see the opposite occur, but honestly, given the obvious bias in the industry, there’s very little worry that would ever happen.

Legendary actor Michael Douglas, most recently known for the role of Hank Pym in Marvel’s Ant-Man film series, has announced he’s backing Bloomberg for president, also.

Douglas made the announcement in a video released on Tuesday.

Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner:

“I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” Douglas told People magazine, adding that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy.

The actor said he saw the addition of Bloomberg, 77, to the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as a “rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.”

Bloomberg hasn’t been shy about making it clear he supports the removal of Donald Trump as the president under the impeachment charges brought against him by the House of Representatives.

He clarified that he believes impeachment is very divisive, but “there’s just so much evidence that [Trump] acted inappropriately.”

Democrats keep talking about all of the evidence that supports impeachment, but the question remains. Where’s it at?

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.
