• Dear Meryl Streep, About That Golden Globe Speech

    Dear Meryl:

    I love so many of your movies. Sophie’s Choice and French Lieutenant’s Woman were especially faves. When we were both younger I had a total fan-boy crush on you (full disclosure.)

    And Trump is an ass, he did indeed mock a disabled person, hate breeds hate. Thank you, Meryl, for saying those truths.


    However, by confining your criticism, and not speaking out against Obama and his NSA, drones, Gitmo, wars (Libya, Syria, Iraq, etc), use of the Espionage Act, poor record on Freedom of Information Act requests, shielding CIA torturers from prosecution, never mind just making nice speeches while doing nothing practical to curb racism and mass killings, you leave all those bad things on the table. Silence insulates Trump from criticism for, for example, future drone terror, because he’ll be able to say “Well, Obama did it and no one complained.”

    You had a platform, a chance to lay down a marker to not allow the coming Obama revisionism to protect Trump, and you did not use it.


    By leveling criticism at Trump only, you spoke to the same group of people that already dislikes Trump. You squandered any credibility with the people you need to speak to, those who supported Trump but need to understand what is happening going forward. You made yourself and your pals feel all revolutionary and warm, but do you think you gathered any new support for the Dems heading forward into midterms? Nope.

    And by slipping in your snark against wrestling and MMA, Meryl, you flipped off a huge segment of the nation, some of whom the Dems may want as voters. I’m pretty sure very few people think of wrestling as what you called “The Arts” but sure, reinforce that idea that the Dems are cut off from regular people and that because those folks don’t watch black and white movies (how do you even know?) they are yokels.

    You really don’t get it, do you, Meryl? Your near-total misunderstanding of what is going on outside your happyland (Meryl, it seems your net worth is $75 million, and the only job you have held since graduating from Vassar and Yale has been actress) makes your “stand” seem pretty sad. People are hurting.

    So let me try and put it in terms you might “relate” to. One of your early roles was in the movie The Deer Hunter, about a group of blue collar steel workers who go off to Vietnam and are mentally and physically destroyed there. I spent a good part of a summer in the towns in West Virginia and Ohio where a lot of the movie was filmed. The factories are gone. The mills used as background scenery for your movie are cold and empty. The towns suffer from meth and opioid epidemics because of the pain. Nearly everyone is on some sort of food aid. An awful lot of the sons and daughters of the people who fought in Vietnam went on to fight in other pointless wars.

    Those people are pissed off, Meryl. They are pissed off at people like you who want to dismiss them as simple racists and women haters. They are pissed off at being told they are too stupid to realize Obama fixed their economy, and that people like you know better. They do not see Hillary’s defeat as a martyrdom operation. The election was less about Trump than it was about people like you.

    You made a movie in their backyard and then left them behind. That’s what happened, Meryl.


    Oh, and Meryl, an underappreciated bit of stupidity in your speech was stressing the diversity of your attendees like Sarah Jessica Parker by saying she was from Ohio, and someone else starring in something was from New Jersey. What the hell was that even about?

      Streep has no idea she is prone to selective criticism. The Hollywood set loved Hillary and Barack and will mourn them for decades. Obama is smitten with cinema celebrity types and Streep, Clooney and others like that about him.

      Peter,

      Apology in advance.
      I realize you respect her,… And I should probably sit this one out.

      But…. I’ve never been good at shutting up…..

      So…….

      The biggest problem with actors and actresses…..people forget they don’t really know Shit.

      They are paid because they can make people believe ANYTHING!!!!

      Purple sky… Alien invasion… Obama is good…. All you have to do is get the right representatives…… Actors and actresses…

      Hell… Have some fun sometime…. Search how many “action” stars…… Are illegal to even touch a real gun….how many singers…. Can’t even really talk….etc…etc…

      I don’t respect/disrespect her per se. She’s a good actress, and I’ve been entertained by a bunch of her movies. I also like Megadeath and Bach. But in the same sense I am not an actor, she is not anything but an actor and the idea that she gets a global TV audience to say whatever stupid crap she wants to is insane. So unless you really hate Megadeath, we are pretty much in agreement. No apologies necessary.

      Streep sticks to the script no matter how bad the ending is:

      Blame the Trump villain BUT it is The DNC that cannot publicly admit that its poor direction resulted in the election of Trump. Its 2016 script lacked direction. It lost more than 1,000 elected positions between 2008 and 2012 nationwide. Since 2010, Republicans have replaced 900 Democratic state legislators. Like most box office disasters the suits who know Nothing made the bad decisions. Bad casting like Hillarious turned off the audience. Who wants to spend their money on this crap we have seen before?

      Just as most moviegoers are tired of the junk that flows out of Hollyweird, voters
      rejected the script from the DNC, propped up by corporate money and PR. Here’s the backstory: The Democratic Party must maintain the fiction of liberalism just as the Republican Party must maintain the fiction of conservatism. These two parties, however, belong to one party—the Wall Street War Party. They will work in concert, as seen by the alliance between Republican leaders to silence the Independent voice and dissent, enrich the war industry which most movies are about these days and promote the farce they call democracy.

      Peter,

      Agreed…. I like Megadeath… But Ozzy is pretty cool.

      And… The ring tone on my phone is BOC ” Don’t fear the Reaper”.

      And… Yes… It pisses me off that some actress can be allowed that way.

      Ever seen “Nell”. With Jodi Foster??? Holy crap that woman could act.
      But…. That is what she was trained for.

      F the Golden Globes, lookout for the golden showers, Donald.

      “Mitch, you and I both know if DT was a threat to the Deep State gravy train, Wikileaks would be drowning in incriminating shit that he would force him to resign before being impeached.”

      Well, that was prophetic.

      New reports have surfaced claiming that Russia has compromising intel on Donald Trump and some unverified allegations have been made about the President-elect.

      The dossier with the explosive allegations has reportedly been floating around for weeks and BuzzFeed just published the full document.

      The one part of the document that is buzzing on social media is a claim that Trump ordered sex workers to perform a “golden showers” show while in Russia.

      “Trump‘s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs. Obama (who he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him,” the report read. “The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.”

      Sorry, but this doesn’t pass the smell test. Good try, Deep State. Try another Curveball.

      The big question is whether this report would make any difference. After all, DT is on audio record as a sex pervert. Would a video of golden showers change the voters’ opinion of him? Nice that the FBI had this info before the election and didn’t report it to the press for fear of influencing the election. If it was in an email, well that would be a different story.

      Now your thinking…… But a better question would be….

      How much did who spend on Creating this Intel???

      A little personal history for you here…. About ‘ politics’….. And how they really operate….

      I have a stalker…. SHE has been after a piece of me for years…. She would prefer my head as her ‘piece ‘ of me…

      The reason she wants me dead…. To the point she has gone to….is because….I found out a 9 year old boy had been raped on a school campus, where she is a school board member.

      I tried all the “offical channels”….. And found the only way to address issues against the school district, is with State permission ( what the fuck????)

      So…. Me….. Being ME….. I took it to the press, media… Etc….

      And drove in the nails myself…..you know…. The kind that are used on the cross….

      By the time the utter destruction was over…. Principal, superintendent…. Several board members…. A couple teachers…. Were all looking a major prison time…

      Remember what I said about being a bulldog on right and wrong??

      Well….. The reason I have a stalker….. She wants to lite my ass on fire….. Little thing called…..

      Revenge.

      Do I think Trump is petty enough for a pee the bed thing…. YEP.

      Do I think he is stupid enough to get caught…. In Moscow?????

      Not a chance….

      Ever been there???
      I have.

      Andrei can fill you in on the chances of someone as …notable…. As Trump…. Not having the toilet paper bugged.

      And Trump being well aware of it.
