‘Never-Trumper’ Means ‘Always-Sellout’

Billy Crystal and Bill Kristol

The term “sellout” can be used to describe someone who is willing to trade his or her deep personal convictions in exchange for some momentary fame or short-lived gain.

It is also a word that can aptly apply to the “never-Trumpers” of today’s politically fractured society; i.e., those who steadfastly maintain a hate-filled mindset and who indulge in retaliatory thoughts and behavior.

Over the course of his first term in office, President Donald Trump laid down a clear track record of conservatism in the face of untold liberal pressure.

Unmatched in his efforts to rectify years of “progressive” wrongs, he succeeded in transforming the judiciary, de-regulating the economy, reforming national trade policies, and reducing tax burdens on working class folks.

He did all this in the midst of a cadre of so-called conservative Republicans, which grew to become nothing short of a heavily greased and well-funded political machine.

One recent ad campaign is as instructive as it is disturbing.

The advertisement video features the former editor of the now-defunct Weekly Standard magazine Bill Kristol as well as the Hollywood actor and celebrity comic Billy Crystal.

The attempted gag has the two individuals of differing backgrounds and similar names uniting in an effort to persuade Jewish voters to throw their support behind the current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Directed by Rob Reiner and written by Phil Rosenthal, the ad was produced for a group called the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) in partnership with a super PAC called Jews Defending American Values.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” was the select venue for its debut airing.

It turns out that the JDCA is a left-leaning front group, which was launched in August 2017 as part of the “resistance” movement that was working against the administration of President Trump.

The group’s launch event was attended by an interesting line-up of prominent Democrat officeholders, which included future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

More than twenty elected Democrat politicians chose to take to the podium to speak at the event.

Following a previous ad campaign, which was initiated by the JDCA and included Nazi imagery, criticism poured in from several Jewish organizations such as the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Republican Jewish Coalition, the American Jewish Committee, and the Anti-Defamation League.

Kristol, who in the new ad self-identifies as a “Republican” and a “conservative,” is the quintessential never-Trumper. He has worked non-stop with Democrats to attack and undermine President Trump.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson notes that for quite a long time Kristol and his never-Trumper buddies have been “advocating for open borders, and nation-building in countries whose populations hate us…”

In addition, Carlson points out that the never-Trumpers have pushed “trade deals that eliminated jobs while enriching their donors, all while implicitly mocking the base for its worries about abortion and gay marriage and the pace of demographic change.”

In my estimation, never-Trumpers are merely your average everyday garden-variety leftists.

What is not your average everyday nugget of info, though, is the fact that never-Trumpers receive their money from uber-wealthy leftists.

The name Pierre Omidyar may not ring a bell, but he is the founder of eBay. He became a billionaire at the young age of 31, with the company’s initial public offering in 1998.

Omidyar has given more than $200 million to left-wing groups, including the Open Society Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Center for Public Integrity, and the Center for Responsive Politics.

During the Democratic Party presidential primaries in 2008, Omidyar donated to the campaigns of both then-Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Over the course of several years, Omidyar and his wife also donated $200,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and $150,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

As Julie Kelly reported in the Cincinnati Enquirer, another group, Republican Voters Against Trump, is “tied to a nonprofit that has received millions in contributions over the past few years from Pierre Omidyar.”

And Kelly also noted that in 2016 Omidyar donated $100,000 to an entity called the NeverTrump PAC.

Kelly additionally revealed that the Lincoln Project, a prominent never-Trumper organization, received financing from billionaire Democratic donor and leftist Hollywood producer David Geffen, who is a longtime Democratic Party cash source.

During the 2018 mid-terms, never-Trumpers and their ally organizations helped elect far-left radical Democrats to Congress, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., which helped facilitate Pelosi’s rise to House Speaker.

Anyone who does a cursory review of the Biden/Harris candidacy realizes that never-Trumpers have not just sold out their principles, they have sold out the country.

Democrats Lose Their Humanity

Human beings generally have a characteristic response when made aware that a fellow human being, be it a loved one, friend, or stranger, has succumbed to a serious illness or has received an ominous medical diagnosis.

Responses tend to reflect a deep-seated empathy and understanding that are innate in people who maintain a well-balanced psychological, emotional, and spiritual equilibrium. If direct or indirect interaction occurs with a suffering person, encouragement and well-wishes typically flow.

On the other hand, if individuals seem to be indifferent to another’s suffering, in common parlance they are likely to be described as cold, heartless, and/or lacking in compassion. Response to news of another’s misfortunes on the part of these individuals is quite the opposite and may generally fall within the category of psychological dysfunction.

In my assessment, this second description is a wholly appropriate way to characterize the insensitive, uncompassionate, and outright cruel remarks that have been made by several Democrats and their allies in the news media and Hollywood regarding President Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 test and his subsequent illness.

To put it bluntly, a lack of basic human decency has been on display by many on the left. Since the news first hit that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for COVID-19 and the president was hospitalized, numerous Democrats and their media mouthpieces actually expressed wishes that the president would depart this life.

“It’s been against my moral identity to tweet this for the past four years, but, I hope he dies,” tweeted Zara Rahim, a former national spokesperson for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and a staffer in the White House of then-President Barack Obama.

Rahim subsequently ended up deleting the message.

Steve Cox, an Independent congressional candidate running in California’s 39th District, expressed his hope that President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would both die.

The content of statements made by many of President Trump’s political opponents was so heinous Twitter had to issue a warning that the platform would take action against users for tweets that were rooting for the president’s demise. Facebook and other social media platforms followed suit.

Twitter’s announcement was met with immediate criticism from two Democratic congresswomen who are part of a congressional cluster known as “The Squad.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., complained that this policy had not been applied to herself and her colleagues, tweeting the following: “you mean to tell us you could’ve done this the whole time?”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., tweeted, “This is messed up. The death threats towards us should have been taking more seriously by [Twitter].”

Twitter vowed to rectify matters.

“We hear the voices who feel that we’re enforcing some policies inconsistently,” Twitter stated in a post. “We agree we must do better, and we are working together inside to do so.”

Meanwhile other Trump-haters went about claiming that the president’s diagnosis was not real.

In a Facebook post, documentary film-maker Michael Moore opined that the president could be lying about having coronavirus as an opportunity “TO PUSH FOR DELAYING/POSTPONING THE ELECTION.”

Moore also used his Twitter account to snidely state, “My thoughts and prayers, too, are with Covid-19.”

At the top of his opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live,” comedian Chris Rock said something similar to Moore.

“President Trump’s in the hospital from COVID, and I just want to say my heart goes out to COVID,” Rock said.

Joy Reid of MSNBC suggested that the president was pretending to be infected so he would be able to “get out of the debates.”

“Here’s how wrecked Trump’s credibility is at this point: I’ve got a cellphone full of texts from people who aren’t sure whether to believe Trump actually has covid,” Reid tweeted.

Other questionable posts by Bette Midler, Patricia Arquette, Kathy Griffin, Rob Reiner, and Michael Rappaport made their way to the social media.

To their credit, Rachel Maddow, Alyssa Milano, Jamie Lee Curtis, and the Biden campaign responded appropriately.

Not so with other high-profile individuals, including a couple of top Democrat political leaders.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., hit a new low. She actually blamed the president for getting sick and then tried to soften her comments by tacking on her usual disclaimer: “I’m praying for him.”

And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., carped in a statement that President Trump’s diagnosis is what happens “when you ignore science.”

It is difficult to find words to describe or ways to explain the all-consuming hatred that the left continues to spew out against the president. The 90 percent-plus derogatory coverage he has received from the lopsided media is no doubt a factor.

Human beings are capable of being programmed to hate.

The Democratic Party has spent every day for the past five years devising schemes, first to undermine his candidacy and then to undermine his presidency.

Human beings are capable of being programmed to be distrustful.

The complicit media have name-called, derided, maligned, and outright lied about the president’s person and policies.

Human beings are capable of being programmed to be cynical.

There is a domino effect that can occur when negative emotions are continuously teed up and then given a solid nudge. Discontent can tip into arrogance, arrogance into anger, and anger into vengefulness.

This is the way humanity is lost.

The question is whether Democrats even care.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. Launches a Conservative Movie Studio

Antonio Sabato Jr. came to America from Italy when he was just a young boy. He didn’t speak the language of the new country that he now called home, but he was determined to learn.

In a foreshadowing of sorts, Sabato would teach himself to speak America’s dominant language the Hollywood way. He would become fluent in English by watching movies. Later he would break into the world of modeling and move on to working as an actor in television and film.

Most people are aware that the political pendulum in Hollywood has gone through quite a dramatic swing over the years. What began as a top down system, with studio bosses in control, slowly transformed into a quasi bottom up system, which was heavily influenced by agents, lawyers, and enormously overpaid talent.

As I documented in my books and writings over the past couple of decades, when it comes to diversity of political thought, there has been very little permission granted to folks who are working in the entertainment industry to be anything but liberal. Still, nothing could have prepared Tinseltown conservatives for what was about to happen.

In 2016 Donald J. Trump won the presidency. He took his place in the Oval Office, and it seems as though for Hollywood leftists everywhere, in one fell swoop the gates of Hades blew wide open.

After a few initial days of shell-shock and tears over the election results, Hollywood residents snapped into action. Arm and arm with the Democratic Party, celebrity leftists signed on to the coup, swarmed the media, and worked harder than they ever had to get rid of the president.

Pre-2016 the hatred in Hollywood against those who held contrary political positions was at a steady simmer. Post-2016 it would flat-out boil over, blistering every facet of the business. Direct aim would be taken against any individual who would dare to express even the slightest bit of openness to an opposing viewpoint.

The McCarthy Era would have nothing on the New Hollywood Trump Era. One after another Hollywood conservatives in Tinseltown would be shown the door.

Enter stage right. Sabato’s political views were routinely unacceptable in Hollywood, but now they would be deadly to his career. Except for the fact that he’s a Hollywood conservative who was in no way going to take it lying down.

He came to the conclusion that conservative creatives needed an alternative place to make the kind of movies and other entertainment product that are now banned by uber-woke Hollywood.

In a recent post on his Twitter account, Sabato revealed his plans for an alternative entertainment company.

“We are putting together a plan to create a conservative movie studio for all patriots to do projects that Hollywood would never do,” Sabato wrote. “No more blacklisting and no more injustice from the socialist elites.”

A follow-up tweet indicated that Sabato’s studio offered an oasis for conservative filmmakers to join in with the studio’s new film and mission.

“To all conservative producers who want to make a change this is the time, get in touch with me, and be part of our team,” the post read. “Right now we are in pre-production with Trail Blazers [Sabato’s upcoming film project] our first in line for many more & first to start our studio.”

IMDB describes “Trail Blazers” as a Western drama and indicates an expected release next year.

The film stars fellow conservatives Kristy Swanson and Stacey Dash, along with legendary film icon Robert Wagner. The cast of “Trail Blazers” also has a host of familiar right-of-center actors in Hollywood, including Kevin Sorbo, Scott Baio, Dean Cain, and Lorenzo Lamas.

Sabato is directing the film, which he co-wrote with actress and producer Deborah Twiss, and he will act in the project as well.

It is no longer a secret that Hollywood has no tolerance for anyone who doesn’t capitulate to the “woke” litany of approved beliefs. Artists trying to make it in the rough and tumble business of entertainment have known that they have to stay in what legendary actor Charlton Heston referred to as the “conservative closet.”

Sabato declared his support for President Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention, and since then his career suffered. He recently shared via media interviews what happened to him after his name was firmly engraved on Hollywood’s new blacklist.

“I was the first celebrity to come out and talk about the president, and he had my vote from day one,” he told Variety. “I had to sell everything, I had to pay all my debts, I was blacklisted. All my representatives left me, from agents to managers to commercial agents. I literally had to move, find a new job to survive and take care of my kids.”

During a recent appearance on Fox Business, Sabato explained to host Maria Bartiromo that your future is in jeopardy if Hollywood has disdain for your political point of view or your religious belief system.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” he told Bartiromo. “I never expected to see it here in Hollywood where you have this liberal world dictating the future of everybody in the business who disagrees with them politically.” He explained that it can be seriously problematic if you bring up God or express your faith by wearing a cross.

He also indicated that there are other Trump supporters in the entertainment industry who are too afraid to reveal their political views for fear they will lose opportunities to work in the highly competitive industry.

Sabato is not completely alone in speaking out about the treatment of conservatives in Hollywood. Tim Allen and James Woods have let it be known their careers were hurt by having the “wrong” political beliefs in Hollywood. And Tinseltown’s bias turned super extreme when comedic actress Roseanne Barr received particularly harsh treatment over a single tweet. She lost her ABC show and her career in part because she was known to be a Trump supporter.

“The amount of people being blacklisted in Hollywood is astounding. I have never received so much support and so much love and also wanting to be a part of my new venture with our new studio. Incredible times and we will do it together!” Sabato recently posted.

Everyone knows you can’t keep a good conservative down. Something tells me a grateful public is in Sabato’s corner.

Say a Prayer for Hollywood

hollywood_69059

Hollywood is in deep trouble.

Years ago people used to say to me that it really didn’t matter what folks in Hollywood said or did. No one says that to me anymore.

Those of us who are old enough to have witnessed and who fully understand the pivotal role that Hollywood plays in American culture know all too well that Hollywood has completely lost its way.

Over the past few decades there has been an intellectual, social, and moral slide in which Hollywood has actively engaged. The result has been more corrosive on our society than anyone could ever have imagined.

The good news is that we have reached the tipping point, and it has arrived in the form of a movie. The film is called “Habit,” and it is a sinister work that attacks the God of our founding, the Lord of our ancestors, and the Holy One of the ages.

In this blasphemous production, God is a woman.

This alone is enough to offend many people of faith. But the religious-minded among us have found ourselves in this position many times in the past, times in which we merely suffered the affront, chalked it up to free expression and artistic license, and politely rose above it.

In this heinous production, God is not only a woman, but a promiscuous one.

In the tradition of many religious people, promiscuity is a failing, albeit a common one not unlike myriad other stumbles, but nevertheless a serious failing on the part of the individual. Needless to say, when people of faith stumble, they seek forgiveness from The Author of Perfection who always was, is, and will be unblemished.

In this distorted production, God is a female who is attracted to multiple other women.

For people who adhere to the scriptural content of the Old Testament as well as those who embrace both the Old and the New, The Divine Designer created man and woman, and sexual attraction is specifically an innate desire that rests within earthly beings.

In this sacrilegious production, God is a drug dealer.

Here again, believers hold fast to the truth that the God of Our Fathers is sinless. To imply otherwise takes His Holy Name in vain and is a grave offense against Him and against those who worship and adore Him.

And so it is that everyone who is still watching what Hollywood is providing as entertainment for us, in all of its various forms, gets to pick a side.

“Habit” stands as a virtual line in the sand. We are either for its release or against it. We are either willing to tell any company that would facilitate the circulation of this egregious product that we will no longer consume any of its entertainment fare or we fold and give them yet another pass. And we either stand for God or turn our backs.

God’s nature and His identity as God-made-flesh are central tenets of the deeply held beliefs of more than two billion religious people around the globe. Hopefully in this tipping point, God’s side of the scale will be the one that prevails.

Several organizations are now seeking the film’s cancellation. Ted Baehr, founder of Movieguide and the Christian Film & Television Commission (CFTC), recently told The Christian Post that “Habit” crosses a line “that should not be crossed.” The Movieguide site is promoting a petition by the CFTC on CitizenGo.org, which as of this writing has more than 210,000 signatures from people who hope to stop this movie in its ugly tracks.

Another petition, which was started by OneMillionMoms.com, a division of the American Family Association, has been signed by almost 70,000 people.

“Habit” does not yet have a release date or distribution deal. However, with the entertainment industry’s track record, it is likely that those who have invested substantial sums of money in the production of the film will move forward in some fashion with its release.

We need to say a prayer for Hollywood and for our culture.

In the meantime, we need to keep a watchful eye on Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and other platforms. In this digital era, films go straight to home theaters.

That’s where God’s side has to be willing to be a cancel culture all its own.

Ted Cruz’s Legislation Could Halt China’s Censoring of Hollywood

worldwarz_dvd_en_800x1200

Texas Senator Ted Cruz may really be on to something big.

Sen. Cruz plans to introduce legislation soon, which will address a critically important issue involving the rights of Americans, as well as folks in other nations, to enjoy entertainment product that is free from Chinese communist censorship.

The former 2016 GOP presidential candidate has, in accordance with modern congressional practice, affixed a clever acronym to his new bill, SCRIPT, which stands for the “Stopping Censorship, Restoring Integrity, Protecting Talkies” Act.

The legislation seeks to deter a current practice of Hollywood studios in which, prior to release, they submit movies to Chinese censors. The proposed law would cut off any assistance given by the Department of Defense to those film studios that allow the communist regime to alter cinematic content.

With regard to many a film and television production project, Hollywood has often requested help from the Pentagon. It has been this way for years. In each branch of the military, there is actually a liaison office that aids filmmakers with consultation, personnel, equipment, and access to military installations.

“For too long, Hollywood has been complicit in China’s censorship. The SCRIPT Act will serve as a wake-up call by forcing Hollywood studios to choose between the assistance they need from the American government and the dollars they want from China,” Sen. Cruz recently said in a statement.

The truth is Hollywood is in need of a wake-up call. China was set to surpass the U.S. box office of 2020 just before the coronavirus shutdown occurred.

Hollywood executives are well aware of the fact that the Chinese regime limits the number of foreign films that can be released annually in its country. Additionally, many Chinese companies provide considerable amounts of capital for Hollywood productions.

The Chinese regime is preoccupied with projecting a false image in order for it to continue to maintain its power. As a result it has frequently injected itself into creative aspects of American entertainment production and oftentimes altered content to fit its own agenda.

Back in 1997, Martin Scorsese’s film “Kundun” was banned, because it appeared to be sympathetic to the Dalai Lama. Scorsese and other members of the production team were literally banned by the Chinese regime from ever entering the country again.

China also took the dramatic step of banning Disney films and television shows. Disney actually apologized in 1998 for releasing “Kundun.” Eventually, though, the company was able to make a deal in 2016 to open Shanghai Disneyland.

In 2006, creators of “Mission Impossible III” were required to remove part of the film’s opening sequence in which underwear hanging on a clothesline made its “undesirable” appearance in a Tom Cruise chase scene in Shanghai.

The following year, creators of “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” were evidently persuaded to edit out footage of the character Chow Yun-fat, because it offended the Chinese powers that be.

In a 2012 reboot of “Red Dawn,” the original plot featured an invasion of the United States by China. The storyline was dutifully altered to depict the invading enemy as being from North Korea. Since the initial filming had already been completed, this feat was accomplished via re-shoots and digital alteration. It would be to no avail though, because the movie still ended up in the position of being unable to obtain a China release.

The James Bond 2013 installment, “Skyfall,” was released only after scenes that included Chinese police using torture tactics and prostitution occurring in Macau were edited out.

That same year the Brad Pitt film “World War Z” was banned by the regime in Beijing, because the plot of the film had the origin of the zombie outbreak kick off in China. Interestingly, Chinese officials also had a grudge against Pitt for his audaciousness in having starred in the movie “Seven Years in Tibet.”

As a condition of the China release of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” creators of the 2018 Queen biopic had to redact any references to lead singer Freddie Mercury’s sexual identity and the cause of his passing. The Chinese censors even removed part of star Rami Malek’s Oscar acceptance speech from the streaming Academy Award ceremony.

During the same year, Disney’s “Christopher Robin” was banned by Chinese censors, because activists had noted on the internet President Xi Jinping’s resemblance to Winnie the Pooh.

In the movie trailer of the yet to be released “Top Gun: Maverick,” missing from Tom Cruise’s iconic leather jacket are the Japanese and Taiwanese flag patches, which appeared on Maverick’s original coat. The patches have been replaced by two non-descript, similarly colored symbols.

Sen. Cruz’s SCRIPT Act would be a great first step in trying to address China’s egregious pattern of modifying U.S. entertainment product.

Now if only Hollywood could lend its support to the cause embodied in the legislation — that even in the entertainment industry, artistry and its dual pursuits of truth and self-determination, still reign supreme over profit.

Michael Moore Deconstructs ‘Green’ Energy in New Documentary

documentary_78120372-e1587497118429

Michael Moore is known for triggering right-of-center media venues and individuals with provocative remarks, which have oftentimes served to promote documentaries that have personally enriched him.

In his latest film, however, Moore appears to engage in some misdirection. Instead of throwing a left hook, he throws a right.

How can it be that Moore would put his cinematic stamp of approval on something that might infuriate the left?

One thing for sure, there is quite a bit of finger pointing at liberal “green” icons included in the footage of “Planet of the Humans,” the latest documentary where Moore is credited as executive producer.

A master of PR, Moore seems to have known exactly what he was doing in releasing the film on Earth Day, environmentalists’ most revered calendar date.

Some of the more notable nuggets that the documentary exposes are as follows: Biomass fuel destroys nature at a faster rate than nature can replace; electric cars are charged via the power grid, which requires the use of exorbitant amounts of non-renewable energy; and a by-product of mining lithium is the inevitable damage that occurs to the ecosystem.

Decimated in the movie is the notion that solar and wind energy are legitimate replacements for fossil fuels.

“Planet of the Humans” exposes the hypocrisy of some of the environmental movement’s most famous eco-celebrities, including former Vice President Al Gore, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, activist-author Bill Mckibben, and news commentator Van Jones.

The documentary also reveals the secret profiteering and corporate connections of the Sierra Club, Goldman Sachs, and former President Barack Obama’s green energy initiatives. It additionally calls out Gore for selling his television network to Qatari-owned Al-Jazeera and chides McKibben for cozying up to Wall Street and being an advocate of biomass.

“The takeover of the environmental movement by capitalism is now complete,” the documentary’s narrator declares.

Josh Fox, director of the anti-fracking film “Gasland,” voiced his dissatisfaction with the film on Twitter.

“I just had the unfortunate displeasure of watching PLANET OF THE HUMANS the #Earthday freebie irresponsibly put out by Michael Moore @MMFlint,” Fox wrote, opining that it was “an unsubstantiated, unscientific, poorly made piece of yellow journalism which attacks proven renewable energy and science.”

Fox and his cohorts tried to have the movie removed from public access and sought an apology from Moore.

McKibben, the high profile environmentalist who was exposed in Moore’s documentary, was incensed.

“I am used to ceaseless harassment and attack from the fossil fuel industry, and I’ve done my best to ignore a lifetime of death threats from right-wing extremists. It does hurt more to be attacked by others who think of themselves as environmentalists,” McKibben posted on 350.org, the website of the environmental group that he founded.

The self-described website for the U.S. solar community, PV Magazine, featured an article on Moore’s movie, which was penned by renewable energy analyst Eric Wesoff.

Wesoff described the film as a “screed against solar power, wind power, biomass, hydrogen fuel, ethanol, EVs, and a case for the general unsuitability of renewables as a replacement for fossil fuels.”

He also wrote, “It’s difficult to take the film seriously on any topic when it botches the solar portion so thoroughly.”

“Planet of the Humans” is written, directed, and narrated by Jeff Gibbs, a self-described lifelong committed environmentalist, who co-produced Moore’s best known films “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 911.” For the next few weeks the filmmakers are making the documentary available on YouTube without charge.

Moore shared with Reuters the following puzzling statement: “I thought electric cars were a good idea, but I didn’t really think about ‘where is the electricity coming from?’”

He added, “I assumed solar panels would last forever. I didn’t know what went into the making of them.”

Even though the documentary takes on the renewable energy issue and skewers some big-name environmental leaders in the process, the filmmakers remain totally committed to the same basic views as the backers of the “Green New Deal.”

The film asks during its final scenes, “Can a single species that’s come to dominate the entire planet be smart enough to voluntarily limit its own presence?”

The narrator then claims that the environmental debate essentially avoids discussion of “the only thing that might save us.”

Although Moore and Gibbs go beyond a mere expose of the promoters of renewable energy, they unfortunately come to a grim conclusion that is shared by the extreme left; that being, humankind is very close to destroying the planet.

According to Moore and Gibbs, what we really need to do is get “a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption.”

Sadly, environmentalists of their ilk appear to be world-weary misanthropes who will continue to hold fast to the belief that the real problem is not carbon emissions or greenhouse gasses, but people.

Celebrities Show Love for W.H.O., Disrespect for U.S.

SWITZERLAND-HEALTH-EPIDEMIC-VIRUS-WHO

Despite having temporarily sacrificed some of our freedom during the coronavirus lockdown, many Americans seem to have gained a newfound appreciation for our country.

The Hollywood left, on the other hand, doesn’t appear to have had the same experience.

To a whole lot of everyday people, much has been revealed through the pandemic that shocked us to the core, and many a lesson has been learned. One of the most important lessons gleaned is how incredibly dangerous it is to be dependent on a communist regime with regard to our critical supply chain.

Too many of our celebrities, though, continue to display an utter lack of awareness or understanding about the geopolitical realities of our times. This was recently driven home when many of the rich and famous lent their names and talents to the unworthy cause of raising funds for the World Health Organization (W.H.O.).

A virtual concert took place this past weekend, which was promoted as a “One World” event. It was designed to benefit the W.H.O., a global entity that is deeply enmeshed in controversy.

The concert’s marquee included A-list celebrities such as Taylor Swift, John Legend, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Elton John, and Lady Gaga.

Late-night comedians Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel served as hosts. Other famous individuals who made appearances included Ellen DeGeneres, former First Ladies Laura Bush and Michelle Obama, and Bill and Melinda Gates, the couple whose foundation is the W.H.O.’s second biggest donor.

As a virtual concert, the event had artists and participants appearing from their homes; this allowed for the event to be broadcast across multiple television channels in the U.S. and around the globe. Funds in excess of $128 million were raised, according to a press release from the organizers.

The timing of the concert was more than unfortunate for our nation. President Donald Trump had just canceled funding for the W.H.O., due to credible allegations of influence exerted upon the group by the communist regime in China.

The president took the appropriate action for our country when he held back funds for the W.H.O., pending an investigation of the group’s alleged malfeasance in dealing with China’s mishandling and potential cover-up of the coronavirus breakout in Wuhan.

The W.H.O. has had a spate of bad press. The head of the organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is a former official of Ethiopia’s Marxist Tigray People’s Liberation Front. In January and well into February of 2020, Tedros lavished unmerited praise on the Chinese government for its handling of the virus’s breakout and supposed sharing of information. While the W.H.O. leader commended China, he simultaneously criticized other nations for their responses to the coronavirus emergency.

Tedros had encouraged the nations of world not to limit travel to and from China and also delayed letting the world know that the virus was a public health emergency.

At a recent White House press conference in which he pledged to withdraw W.H.O. funding, President Trump stated the following: “The W.H.O.’s attack on travel restrictions put political correctness above life-saving measures.”

Interestingly, the “One World” virtual concert was organized by the W.H.O. along with another entity, the non-profit advocacy group Global Citizen.

The staging of a musical event with a theme that ran counter to the Trump administration’s policies was apparently something that Global Citizen had been involved with on a prior occasion, as recently as September of last year.

President Trump had just shared with the United Nations General Assembly the notion that “the future does not belong to the globalists. The future belongs to the patriots.” A mere four days later an event called the “Global Citizen Festival” was held in New York’s Central Park.

Entertainers that were featured included Queen (with Adam Lambert), Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, Carole King, and Hugh Jackman, a celebrity lineup with comparable star power to the one that the W.H.O. featured at its fundraising concert. Tickets to the event were offered for free to “global citizens” who were willing to “take a series of actions to create lasting change around the world.”

Similar to the recent W.H.O. “One World” concert, the event brought together entertainment figures to appear with activists in order to promote a host of radical pseudo-utopian causes.

Our nation and the priceless freedoms it affords are what enable individuals to reach for the sky and, when hard work and destiny lock hands, achieve their dreams.

Perhaps as tragic as a virus that infects the body is a hatred that hardens the heart. There is no virtue in supporting the W.H.O., an organization that may have assisted China and betrayed the U.S. and possibly the whole world.
