The New Hollywood Blacklist

Hollywood is cutting its own throat with the Cancel Cult, New Blacklist, and unwatchable woke-scold product.

Published

on

In the 40s and 50s, Hollywood had a Blacklist of actors, writers, and directors that were suspected of subversive Red (read communist) ties, and as such were unable to get work in the industry. It was a written list, and there were Congressional hearings about it as part of the Red Scare & the McCarthy Era. Many good men and women had their livelihoods taken away, and were personally and professionally ruined.

Today, the Blacklist is back, and it is more pervasive and extensive than ever. More men and women are affected by it, and have had their lives ruined by it. But according to Academy Award nominated screenwriter Roger Simon, there is a big difference between today’s Blacklist and the Blacklist of 40s and 50s. It’s not a formal list. It doesn’t need to be. Hollywood learned its lesson, and doesn’t want a public Blacklist. They just stop employing anyone with conservative leanings. After a while, the person disappears from the scene, and is never heard from again, just like people in the novel 1984 who were “unpersoned”.

Actor Antonio Sabato Junior came out as a Trump supporter in 2016, and was unable to get any work in Hollywood after that. James Woods, an Academy Award nominated actor, was dropped by his longtime agent and is not getting any new offers, despite an illustrious and successful career. Roger Simon is also an Academy Award nominated screen writer, and ever since he came out as a conservative in Hollywood, he has not received any new work. Both Woods and James are former liberals, and marched for Civil Rights in the Sixties.

Hollywood’s hypocrisy and and adherence to the Cancel Cult has led to the current state of affairs.

Actress Gina Carrano was dropped from the hit Disney Star Wars TV series for a post making a Holocaust comparison, while her co-start Pedro Pascal, who also made a post with a Holocaust comparison, was not fired. Why? Gina is a conservative, and Pedro is a progressive. Stacey Dash, the formerly Trump supporting actress has now done a mea culpa and said that she no longer supports him, but the howling Hollywood mob is not forgiving her.

According to Simon, this is possible today because Hollywood is no longer what it once was. What does that mean? Everyone except the most bankable stars is considered expendable. (Should we call the people on the New Blacklist The Expendables?) The only conservative in Hollywood that is immune from the cancel cult is Clint Eastwood, and he’s going on 91. He is a bankable star, both as an actor and a director. But who else is a bankable star that’s a conservative? No one. There are fewer and fewer bankable stars today than ever, and most are either loudly progressive (read fascist) or just stay out of politics altogether.

Hollywood is cutting it’s own throat with its embrace of the Cancel Cult, the New Blacklist, and its unwatchable woke-scold product.

The time is ripe for market disruption featuring conservative and traditional themes. There are many conservative voices that are attempting to do this, including Ben Shapiro and The Daily Wire, as well as Ilan Srulovicz, the CEO of Égard Watches and a Hollywood actor and filmmaker, and the great Antonio Sabato Junior, who is starting a conservative movie studio. I believe that 2021 — 2031 will see the emergence of a new conservative version of Hollywood, that will eventually dwarf the legacy version of Hollywood.

With Representatives Like Kelly Daughtry, We Can Take Back America

Daughtry is a soft-spoken woman who gets things done

Published

on

When President Trump takes office next January 20th, he’s going to need a cadre of strong-willed Congressional representatives. It’s not enough to simply retake the White House, we need the foot soldiers with the unshakeable resolve to restore America.

In North Carolina’s 13th district, one candidate is firmly rooted in the values that made this country great, and will make it great again. Her name is Kelly Daughtry and, quite frankly, the nation needs many others like her.

Raised in rural North Carolina and the daughter of a U.S. veteran, farmer, lawyer, and entrepreneur, Daughtry has been a practicing lawyer for the past 25 years in Johnston County, where she makes her home. She’s been in the trenches and is not skittish about the slings and arrows that come with taking bold, conservative positions for what is right.

Clear Positions on Vital Issues

Daughtry is exceedingly clear on where she stands and on what will improve the lives of American citizens. She is a vigorous supporter of law enforcement and decries ‘de-fund the police’ movements wherever they arise. She understands that, by and large, the men and women in law enforcement are dedicated, hardworking individuals who, in many instances, put their lives on the line.

Similarly, Daughtry supports the U.S. military and our veterans. She knows that nations around the world with rogue leadership wish to do us great harm, and that we must maintain a strong military at all times. Not coincidentally, a strong military is the best prescription for peace.

On the border issue, Daughtry recognizes that the Biden Administration is firmly committed to swamping our country with illegal aliens. Why? Because the U.S. Census count doesn’t focus on U.S. citizenship, only the number of residents per county and state.

Hence, Democrats can gain a 20-seat advantage in the U.S. House of Representatives by continuing to flood our nation. This ploy is precisely why Biden and company have brought lawsuits against border states seeking to protect themselves.

The drugs, the crime — the murders — and the bursting budgets of towns and states trying to cope with the onslaught of illegals should never have happened in the first place. Daughtry knows what needs to be done, and done immediately.

Reversing Biden’s Reckless Agenda

Daughtry will go to work on restoring our nation, dismantling Joe Biden’s reckless agenda for America. She understands that Biden’s policies towards China in particular, and the bribes he has taken, have been nothing less than devastating for hard-working Americans and for our national security.

Most notably, she is firmly opposed to the Chinese Communist Party and their representatives who are seeking to buy farmland throughout North Carolina as well as every other place in the United States.

Biden’s out-of-control spending has particularly hurt North Carolinians. Farmers have taken the brunt of the punishment. The unending inflation that we’ve faced for 38 months also has dealt a crushing blow to North Carolina small business owners and families in general. One of Daughtry’s first agenda items will be to help steer our country back towards fiscal sanity, which in turn will have a direct impact on the cost of groceries and gasoline.

Americans First

Like President Trump, Daughtry understands the importance of putting Americans first and of safeguarding or voting procedures, elections, and indeed what it means to be an American citizen. Of note, she has no misconceptions about the differences between men and women and will work to stop the malarkey that the Left imposes on us every day, with their “56” types of genders.

Daughtry is a soft-spoken woman and in her quiet way, gets things done. If Donald Trump had an army of Kelly Daughtrys, the country would be on firm footing in relatively short order. She knows what hard-working Americans want and need, and is exactly the type of politician that North Carolina must send to Washington D.C.

It is not an exaggeration to say that in Wake, Harnett, Johnson, and Wayne counties in North Carolina, as well as the entire state and entire country, the 2024 election will be the most important in our lifetimes. This has been said about other elections at other times, but considering the damage that the Democrats have wrought on America, the time is now to reclaim our great nation and, with the likes of Kelly Daughtry, we can.

Why East Coast Workers are Blurry Eyed on Monday Morning

Most major television events start at 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. in the eastern times zone and many end far later than 11 p.m.

Published

on

Take a good look at the list below. What do all these events, listed in reverse order of occurrence, have in common? The answer: they all occur on Sunday evening.

 

* Jan 07 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Golden Globe Awards

* Jan 14 Miss America Finals, NFL Wildcard Playoffs

* Jan 21 NFL Divisional Playoffs

* Jan 28 NFL Playoffs Conference Championship

 

* Feb 04 Grammys, NFL Pro Bowl

* Feb 11 Superbowl

* Feb 18 NBA All-Star Game

* Mar 10 Academy Awards

 

* Mar 17 Selection Sunday

* Mar 24 March Madness, round two

* Mar 31 March Madness, round four

* Apr 07 NCAA Women’s Final Four

 

* Apr 14 Masters Golf Finale

* Apr 21 NBA first round playoffs

* May 05 NBA Conference Semi-finals

* May 19 NBA Conference season finals

 

* May 26 National Memorial Day Concert

* Jun 09 NBA Finals, 2nd game

* Jun 16 Tony Awards

* Nov 17 Billboard Music Awards

As much as we’d like to think that Sunday is the most relaxing day of the week, too often, for much of the U.S. population, some late-night television event captures our attention and renders us blurry eyed for the next day.

Some television networks, such as HBO (now “HBO Max”), have a predisposition to air new episodes of recurring shows on Sunday evenings. Sunday nights are also considered prime time for sports such as football and basketball.

Problematic?

If you live in the Pacific time zone, the vast array of specialized television events on Sunday evening is not problematic, as most events start at 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. and end between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Mountain time residents benefit nearly the same as Pacific time zone residents.

If you live in the Eastern time zone, you’re in trouble because most events start at 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. and many end far later than 11 p.m. Those in the Central time zone enjoy a one-hour earlier end to such events, which is often enough to avoid the issue addressed here.

The obvious solutions are to either rest up on Sunday with a long nap, so that you can stay up late to watch the shows to their conclusion and not head in to work the next day blurry-eyed, or limit yourself to watching half of a show, pause it, and finish watching it the next day.
