I did not watch the Emmys this year and I was evidently joined by millions of Americans. I knew it would be a bash-fest against President Trump. The last thing I want to do after working all day is watch a bunch of self-important celebrities get their hate on for the president and our country. It appears I made a wise choice.
“Black-ish” actress Jenifer Lewis decided to make a statement by wearing a Nike metal-studded swoosh sweatshirt on the Emmys’ new gold carpet Monday night. It was obviously a sick and twisted message meant for President Trump and his supporters but it fell flat.
I’m sure she was standing in solidarity with Nike who chose the former quarterback and current social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick as the company’s new face for their “Just Do It” ad campaign.
Lewis wore a red-and-black sweatshirt with Nike emblazoned on her chest. She accented her black leggings and black-and-white pattern boots with a diamond bracelet and ring. If you ask me, that’s not exactly ‘down’ with the oppressed, if you get my drift.
Lewis claimed that she wore Nike “in support of Colin Kaepernick’s protest against police brutality and racial injustice,” referring to the quarterback’s controversy after starting the whole kneeling controversy during the National Anthem at NFL games.
“I want to speak to the millennials today to let them know they are not alone when they speak out,” said the 61-year-old Lewis. “We are not living in dark times. We are living in awakening times, and I am proud to be one of the leaders in the movement.”
But what Lewis didn’t count on was how all of this vitriol would backfire at the Emmys. They hit an all-time low and in more ways than just the ratings. It backfired gloriously.
Politics was the issue of the evening on the red carpet for the Emmys this year. As you would expect, there were Nazi jokes and endless Trump-bashing. There were even a couple of jabs at Roseanne Barr. And the hypocrisy was deep. One black actor even showed up in white face. I thought that was a political no-no? Guess not.
The ratings for the 70th Emmy Awards plummeted by ten percent in early ratings from last year. Ouch. That broke the record with a 7.4 household rating according to The Wrap.
The Emmys are far from alone. This is the new trend for award shows. Actors and actresses seem to think these shows are leftist political platforms for the Hollywood elite. Americans are sick of hyper-political bloviating from elitists. Award shows used to be entertainment, now they are just disgusting. The 2018 Oscars dropped 16% over 2017, and the Grammys fell 20% over the previous year.
From The Daily Wire:
“Last year, the 69th annual Emmys on CBS hosted by Stephen Colbert dipped 2.4 percent from the prior year to a new low, per Nielsen’s household ratings,” The Wrap reported. “In 2016, the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted Emmys broadcast on ABC fetched an 8.4 in these earliest-available TV ratings, which had set a historic low of its own at the time.”
“The Emmys, hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che, including jokes like this:
“The only white people who thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
“The Emmys were first held in 1949 … things were very different back then: We all agreed that Nazis were bad.”
“Roseanne was canceled by herself and then picked up by white nationalists.’”
Even with all that, last night was NBC’s highest-rated Monday since late 2015. The network pretty much tripled the overnight rating of its closest competition, CBS, which posted a 2.5. NBC’s 7.4 topped the combined ratings of the rest of the Big 4 broadcast nets combined by 23 percent. Think about that. It means the viewership on the major networks is simply pathetic.
Last year, at the 69th annual Emmys on CBS hosted by Stephen Colbert, the awards show dipped 2.4 percent from the prior year to a new low, per Nielsen’s household ratings. The trend seems to be because of politicized comics. They just aren’t funny anymore.
The 70th annual Emmys was a who’s who of leftist celebrities who were mostly there to admire each other. That’s all they can do because nobody wants to watch them much anymore. America is just not that into Hollywood these days.

Cher’s Moment Of Lucidity: ‘CA Can’t Take Care Of Its Own Let Alone Thousands Of Illegals’
Cher has said many outrageous comments in the past… most have to do with Trump-hatred while drinking. In a hell-has-frozen-over moment, Cher said over the weekend that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants. Wow… did she just become a Republican? She’s right of course but hearing it from someone like Cher is mind-blowing.
She’s not alone in wondering how California, who is a flat broke sanctuary state, is able to admit and take care of thousands of illegal immigrants when they can’t even handle their own rising rates of homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans. This isn’t something you ‘tax’ your way out of.
“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher stated.
Now, let’s have some perspective here before we embrace the likes of Cher. She had this revelation after President Trump threatened to release thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California unless the country’s asylum laws are changed. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan. That certainly includes Cher’s beloved Los Angeles. She’s all for open borders until it really impinges on her real estate… then she suddenly sees the light.

“In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.
“While left-wing mayors say they will continue to admit any and all illegal and legal immigrants, Los Angeles is home to the second largest homeless population in the country, second to only New York City. About 50,000 residents of Los Angeles are homeless and about 7.5 percent of California’s American Veteran population is homeless.
“As the city remains crippled by homelessness and skyrocketing housing costs, Los Angeles metro area is also home to the second largest illegal alien population — with nearly a million illegal aliens living in the region, according to Pew Research Center.
“Last year, economists at Deakin University found that immigration — both illegal and legal — drives up housing prices on average, with the researchers writing “we find no evidence that house prices sink as a result of immigration.”’

Cher’s latest stance is a 180-degree reversal from a September 2017 tweet, when she offered to “take a dreamer” into her home and business. “Those Who Can Must Take a DREAMER In2 Their Home & Protect Them,” she wrote. “I’m Ready 2 Do This & Others in MY BUSINESS WILL DO THE SAME. SANCTUARY.” The woman is a shameless hypocrite.
Michael Knowles savored the irony of Cher’s about-face on Twitter: “I’ll never forget where I was and what I was doing the moment Cher became a Republican.” There were many, many others struck by Cher’s new conservatism… shallow as it may be. After Cher’s freak-out over more illegal aliens coming to her sanctuary city, President Trump hit a home run: “I finally agree with Cher!”
WILL TRUMP”REALLY”DO WHAT HE JUST SAID HE WOULD⁉️WILL HE FLOOD MY STATE WITH THOUSANDS OF”RAPISTS,&
MURDERS”(His Words)AS A PUNISHMENT⁉️WHAT KIND OF PRESIDENT IS HE⁉️WHAT KIND OF MAN IS HE⁉️HE’S THE 🌎’s NEWEST DICTATOR,& He Wants HIS Troops 2 Put Up internment Camps.

Donald Trump Jr. nailed Cher over her words on Instagram: “Welcome to the Republican Party Cher!!! 🤣 These Hollywood liberals have some balls. They advocate for these insane leftist policies and open borders when they can stick the burden on you, on your towns, your schools, and your hospitals but if it starts to effect them all of a sudden they’re not so thrilled at the inflow of illegals. What hypocrisy. Remember Libs you wanted them. We offers to give them all to you. What’s the issue? Iits like #thegreennewdeal you want it, you think it’s great, anyone who opposes it is terrible… but then Republicans want you to vote on it and you’re outraged that they would let you vote on your incredible plan. At the vote there are no yeas. Just stop being so full of crap. Everyone knows we have a hard enough time making things work for Americans. We can’t dilute American’s benefits and all of our systems so as to care for millions from all over the world. We need immigration, but how about some immigrants who come here based on merit? What the problem with that? Maybe they won’t be dependent on government and have to vote for you?Anything other than a merit system will further greatly strain actual Americans and make their lives much harder. Stop the bullshit and let’s use some common sense for once. #BuildTheWall #maga”

It appears that Cher wants to be a true liberal only when current events don’t affect her. Previously she has called for Dems to allow Trump to have funding for the wall. Now, this. But she just can’t get past her deep-seated hatred of President Trump to come out all the way and say this insane and suicidal illegal immigration must stop. Well, maybe as Cloward and Piven works against those who instituted it, we will see the collapse of these socialist enclaves. Stars such as Cher will have to sleep in the proverbial beds they have made. That would be true justice. #WeBuildTheWall
Your city is run by Democrats who don’t believe in Americans First. See your @MayorOfLA for example. He helped set up a $10M fund to provide assistance to illegal immigrants facing deportation. Did he set up a $10M fund for homeless Americans/Veterans too? https://t.co/MnXTsUsWYy https://t.co/aOlJRo3edq

MAJOR VICTORY: Colorado Drops 2nd Case Against Christian Baker After Continuous LGBT Harassment
Jack Phillips is a Christian cake artist who has found himself in hot water in Colorado over the last several years. He refused to do a cake that violated his religious beliefs and that’s when the trouble started for him. The issue worked its way once to the Supreme Court where he won but was in the process of making its way to the high court once more. Colorado has now decided to drop the case in a major victory for Christians.
After facing years of constant persecution for his religious beliefs, Phillips can now rest easy and get back to doing what he loves. The LGBT activists and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission can take a hike. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian nonprofit that advocates for religious freedom and traditional values, announced Tuesday that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission “will dismiss its most recent charges against cake artist Jack Phillips in the wake of newly discovered evidence of the state’s ongoing hostility toward religious freedom.”
In the first go-around, Phillips prevailed at the Supreme Court in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. He was originally targeted for refusing to do a transgender celebration cake due to his religious beliefs concerning sex and gender.
From the ADF:
“On June 26, 2017, the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an attorney asked cake artist Jack Phillips to create a cake designed pink on the inside and blue on the outside, which the attorney said was to celebrate a gender transition from male to female. Phillips declined the request because the custom cake would have expressed messages about sex and gender identity that conflict with his religious beliefs. Less than a month after the Supreme Court ruled for Phillips in his first case, the state surprised him by finding probable cause to believe that Colorado law requires him to create the requested gender-transition cake.”
In response to renewed harassment against Phillips, the ADF filed Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Elenis:
“We’re pleased that the state will be dismissing its case against Jack,” said ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner, who represented Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission in the first precedent-setting case. “This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him. While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”
“Jack’s victory is great news for everyone. Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a diverse society like ours. They enable us to peacefully coexist with each other. But the state’s demonstrated and ongoing hostility toward Jack because of his beliefs is undeniable,” noted Waggoner.”
This has been a hot topic in conservative and Christian politics. Daily Wire writer and podcast host Matt Walsh rightfully torched “vengeful bullies of the LGBT lobby” for continuously targeting Phillips.
“This is straightforward persecution,” stated Walsh. “This is a government agency seeking to destroy a private citizen for his personal beliefs. The bureaucrats behind this campaign have now officially forfeited the claim that they are really seeking equality or tolerance or whatever. They know, like we all do, that Phillips was railroaded here. There aren’t even any hurt feelings for them to worry about. Scardina’s feelings weren’t hurt. He got exactly what he wanted, which was to not get what he asked for. He’s a conniving, scheming fraud. And so are the despots in the commission. No matter your ideological leanings, you should be outraged about this.”
Walsh is absolutely right here. Constitutional rights apply to all Americans including Christians. That Colorado commission should be disbanded and reformed after persecuting Phillips the way they did. They tried to bully a Christian into violating his faith… something they would never do to other religions. Today is a great victory for those of the Christian faith in Colorado and the righting of an egregious wrong.
