Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
- Getting tired of all this winning yet? – The USDA reported on Monday that the number of Americans receiving benefits from the federal food stamps program dropped by more than 1.5 million in just the first 6 months of the Donald Trump presidency. At the state level, food stamp enrollments are down in 42 of 50 states during the same time period. Data is not available for months after July, but it is likely that this trend reversed during September with the landfalls of three major hurricanes on the U.S. mainland and Puerto Rico, which displaced hundreds of thousands from their homes. But overall, this is just another sign of the economy’s job-creating response to the Trump Administration’s efforts to reduce regulatory burdens on the business community.
- Ok, well, I knew a little bit…ok, well, maybe I knew more than a little bit…ok, well… – Big-time actor Matt Damon, who just a couple of weeks ago expressed his utter shock and surprise that Big-Time Hollywood Muckety-Muck and his good friend Harvey Weinstein was a serial woman abuser, told an interviewer on ABC Monday that, well, he did know that his buddy Harvey had heinously harassed Brad Pitt’s then-22 year-old girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow back in 1996. The reason he knew about that incident is because he was told by his other good friend, Pitt. Naturally, Damon, being the big-time Hollywood star he is, was let off without any sort of followup question to this admission by the ABC fake journalist who was posing as his interviewer.
- What we are inevitably going to keep finding out as this ballooning scandal continues to grow, is that pretty much every one of these big-time Hollywood figures and Democrat politicians who have expressed their utter shock and dismay to “learn” of their friend Harvey’s disgusting behavior actually knew about their friend Harvey’s behavior all along, but went along with the Hollywood/Democrat/media cult of omerta about the thug because they all hoped to at some point benefit from their good friend Harvey’s power and money.
- Mr. Damon, after all, and his other good buddy Ben Affleck – who has been catching heat for revelations about his own poor behavior towards women – became big-time movie stars themselves when their indie film “Good Will Hunting” won two 1997 Academy Awards after being picked up and funded by…drum roll, please…Harvey Weinstein. They’ve both profited handsomely by working with Weinstein on other projects since then.
- And talk about keeping the omerta pact, Brad Pitt has remained mum about his pal Harvey for more than 20 years despite having long-term relationships with not just one but two actresses who were targets of Weinstein’s humiliations, Ms. Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, who also charges that she was assaulted by Weinstein in the early years of her career. It’s almost like he was asking his pal Harvey for referrals. For a real man, keeping that silence for all those years would have been pretty much impossible to do. But we’re not talking about real men here, we’re talking about big-time actors, who only pretend to be real men on film.
- All these revelations about Hollywood’s debased, depraved culture are having an impact at the box office, as big-budget films like “GeoStorm” and “The Snowman” tanked badly this past weekend, joining a long and growing list of Hollywood casualties this year.
- And we haven’t even gotten around to all the pedophiles yet. As actor Corey Feldman points out, one of the major reasons why is because Hollywood has been so successful over the years getting California’s Democrats to put in place libel laws that are designed to shield the abusers, just another legacy of that political party’s disgraceful partnership with a depraved community. Naturally, after a round of interviews on the subject last week, it was widely reported by the mainstream news media that Feldman had been arrested over the weekend on marijuana possession charges when his tour bus was stopped by Louisiana police. Feldman had to take to his Twitter feed to clarify that, while several others on the bus were charged with possession of drugs, he was neither arrested nor charged with anything.
- But Feldman is used to receiving this kind of treatment from the fake news media. When he first began speaking out in 2013 about how he and fellow child star Corey Haim were passed around by child abusers early in their careers, he was famously berated by reliable celebrity shill Barbara Walters when he made the mistake of appearing on “The View”.
- What Hollywood’s culture of depravity has had going on with the media and the Democrat Party for many years now is a classic protection racket. As law enforcement officials have found out with the mob, protection rackets die hard. It’s going to take a lot of courage on the part of the many, many women and child actors who were abused to break this one up. So far, anyway, we’re off to a promising start.
Just another day in Hollywood protection racket America.
That is all.
