Oprah Winfrey? REALLY?

Oprah 2020: Do we need another glitzy amateur in office?


If being a watchable TV personality selling fantasy qualifies one to be president, we might as well prepare ourselves for the Kardashian dynasty.

Oprah Winfrey’s stirring Golden Globes’ speech electrified America and left some of her closest friends hinting she just might run for president. I, for one, hope she doesn’t.
She would not be the first relatively inexperienced political figure tilted toward the Oval Office by a well-delivered speech. In 2004, Barack Obama, then a 42-year-old state senator from Illinois, brought tears to many watching the Democratic National Convention with his uniquely American story. It began with a Kenyan father who “grew up herding goats.” Four years after that speech, the story climaxed with Obama’s election as president.
Oprah also has a powerful, personal story. Hers begins with a mother who came home “bone tired from cleaning other people's houses” to an impressionable young daughter watching TV. On that small screen, Oprah witnessed the spectacle of a black man — an impossibly elegant Sidney Poitier — winning, for the first time ever, the best actor Academy Award. Her heart filled with joy and wonder.
The most beautiful part of Oprah’s Sunday speech was her message about ordinary people. She sang the praises of domestics, farm workers, laborers, waiters, athletes and soldiers. Oprah does that extremely well. She helps people see the potential and beauty in themselves and in others; and in helping us to see that, she elevates us all. She is bigger than this silly notion that only she, or some other celebrity, can lead us to paradise — or even should try.
As Trump has proved, celebrity glibness and glitter don’t mean there is gold in their promises. There is more likely disappointment. And why would Oprah want to be a party to that?

The View Goes TOO FAR! Rants “Trump is Danger To The World”

[Bloggers note: Why doesn't this group of sick losers just pack up and take their show to Canada... Or better yet, Syria?]

In what seems to be a regular routine, the View trashed President Donald Trump following his first international trip to several Middle Eastern countries, a visit to the Vatican, and participation in the NATO conference.

Whoopi Goldberg specifically highlights the exchange between Trump and German Prime Minister Angela Merkel, echoing Merkel’s comments that “Europe can’t depend on the United States anymore.”

Goldberg angrily remarks, “I don’t care if his supporters care,” Trump is “endangering the world.”

Was ABC's "Last Man Standing" cancelled because of Trump?

ABC Cancels Conservative Tim Allen Sitcom ‘Last Man Standing’ Despite Strong Ratings
Briebart
by Daniel Nussbaum11 May 2017

ABC has cancelled its Tim Allen-starring sitcom Last Man Standing after six seasons, the network confirmed Wednesday.

ABC and production partner 20th Century Fox TV had reportedly usually negotiated over licensing fees for the comedy series before each season; this time, according to Deadline, there was no negotiation, and the network simply pulled the plug on the show.

The sitcom starred Allen as Mike Baxter, a marketing director for a sporting goods store who happened to be politically conservative, and his relationship with his wife Vanessa and his three teenage daughters. The show was one of the few (if not the only) broadcast network sitcom to appeal to conservative, blue-collar America, a true oddity since Allen has noted in interviews that the program was written by liberal writers.

A sixth-season episode found Baxter blasting politically correct “microaggressions” and drawing up a speech for his daughter’s graduation: “To quote future Nobel Prize winner Lee Greenwood, ‘I’m proud to be an American.’ Not just because I have the right to speak my mind or carry an awesome gun, but because it’s the land of opportunity. Some whiny babies might not think so, but in America, if you work hard, anyone can be successful.”

Allen himself is also conservative, and has in the past expressed support for President Donald Trump. In March, the actor told Jimmy Kimmel he had attended Trump’s inauguration and that conservatives in Hollywood need to be “real careful” when discussing their political beliefs.
....

Last Man Standing fans took to Twitter Wednesday and Thursday to urge another network, perhaps Netflix or CMT, to pick it up, while some accused the ABC of axing the show for political reasons.

Conservative group launches anti-Elizabeth Warren initiative

By Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times - Monday, April 17, 2017

Some conservatives say it’s time to begin attacking Sen. Elizabeth Warren, hoping to dent the liberal icon’s political ascent as she begins a book tour widely seen as a testing ground for a 2020 presidential bid.

Republicans have been divided over how to handle Ms. Warren, a first-term senator from Massachusetts and one of the Democratic Party’s biggest draws. Some prominent leaders have sought to boost her profile, figuring she’d be an easier opponent to defeat in 2020 than others.

But America Rising Political Action Committee says Ms. Warren needs to be taken down a few pegs, so the group is beginning an initiative to put her under the microscope as she kicks off a tour in New York Tuesday for her latest book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.”

“Our goal is to make sure there is a lot of negative information flowing around Sen. Warren,” said Colin Reed, executive director of America Rising PAC. “We view this book launch as the soft launch of her presidential campaign, and what I don’t want is for her to have a 2018 re-election to the Senate that she then parlays into the start of the presidential run without any roadblocks in her way.”

Time to Boot Senator Bob Casey, PA

Time to boot Senator Bob Casey in Pennsylvania! This man has gone insane. He makes Elizabeth Warren look conservative! I am not sure what happened to Bob, but he is nothing like his father. He has done little for Pennsylvania and now refuses to work with any but the most liberal of Democrats, and obviously refuses to work with any Republican. Support me in my bid to oust him. Andrew Shecktor for U.S. Senate in 2018 for Pennsylvania.

Conservative radio host: 'Evidence is overwhelming' of Obama spying

By Olivia Beavers
03/05/17 02:10 PM EST

A conservative radio talk show host slammed the Obama administration on Sunday over

claims of spying and wiretapping, saying, “the evidence is overwhelming.”

Mark Levin, who is also a constitutional lawyer, told “Fox & Friends” that the focus should not be on President Donald Trump’s tweets alleging the wiretapping, it should be about the Obama administration overreaching with its spy program.

“The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweeting. This is about the Obama administration spying, and the question is not whether it spied,” he said.

“The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates.”

Levin listed his reasoning and offered evidence, including saying his sources tell him “the FBI sought and was granted a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court” order.

“This is spying.”

Obama Plans Crusade Against Trump

By Ed Klein   |   Tuesday, 07 Feb 2017 10:56 AM

[This guy really has to go - Along with George Soros!]

ET on line reported: "Obama's backwards hat was the talk of Twitter, with one [liberal] tweet reading, ‘Obama got his hat to the back like it's 1990 and trump isn't president. GET YO A** BACK HERE… with respect, sir.'"

Liberals don't have to worry: Obama intends to be the most politically active ex-president in modern times. He's tossing out the old rule book that says former presidents should remain silent for a decent interval to give their successors in the White House time and space to govern.

Spurred into action by his two significant others—Michelle and Valerie Jarrett—the 55-year-old ex-president is preparing to lead the progressive charge against President Donald Trump.

"He's planning to make speeches and speak out forcefully against Trump," said one of his friends. "He's going to fight Trump's executive actions, fire up the leftwing resistance to the Trump administration, and pave the way for the Democrats to retake Congress.

"He's been given assurances by George Soros and other liberal money men that they will make a mighty war chest available for his crusade against Trump," the friend continued.

"Among Democrats, there is no one on the national scene with the status and popularity to match Obama's. He's a towering figure on the left, with a constituency that is angry and begging for a leader to steer them in the right direction.

"And he has every intention of answering their call."
