Actress Sent Sick Message To Trump Supporters Across Her Chest At Emmys – Backfired Gloriously

Published

on

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.

New York City To Allow Illegals To Apply For Affordable Housing, Compete With US Citizens

Published

on

It’s almost impossible to live in New York City unless you make six-figures these days and rent is sky-high there. The Big Apple is now going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for affordable housing thereby competing with US citizens in a scarce and over-priced market. It will wind up hurting those struggling to make it already in NYC that are here legally.

Rent-subsidized housing is already limited in quantity amid a homeless crisis and skyrocketing rents thanks to progressive policies put in place by Democrats in that state and city. Chief among those pushing these policies is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. He just introduced new eligibility rules that will allow the city’s approximate 725,000 illegal alien residents to apply for subsidized, affordable housing — which has historically been reserved for American taxpayers.

No longer will New Yorkers who apply to live in affordable housing have to show their credit rating, a legitimate Social Security number, and documents proving that they are a US taxpayer. Instead, applicants will only have to prove that they paid rent on time every month for a year, a plan that is likely to allow thousands of illegal aliens to obtain affordable housing units over American citizens.

From Breitbart:

“De Blasio has hoped to increase the number of affordable housing units to 300,000 by 2026, a limited amount for a city with more than 8.5 million residents, the majority of whom are renters who have had to deal with increasing housing prices.

“Already, as Bloomberg News notes, the city receives more than 500 applications for each available affordable housing unit that currently exists with the stricter rules. That number is expected to significantly increase when the new rules open the application process to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens and temporary foreign workers on various visa programs, shutting out more and more Americans from cheaper housing.

“The country’s mass illegal and legal immigration policy of the last four decades has greatly driven population growth in the country’s largest cities like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. As a result, experts — including former federal immigration official Lou Di Leonardo — say rents and housing prices sour with increased competition for affordable housing.

“Leonardo wrote in the San Fransisco Chronicle:

Just like everyone else, immigrants need places to live. Their demand for a limited supply of apartments and houses drives up rents, especially in metropolitan areas where immigrants tend to concentrate. Curbing immigration levels would do more than any welfare program to ensure that working-class Americans can afford the roofs over their heads.

Take the Bay Area, for example. Immigrants account for roughly 36% of the population. The average home was valued around $1.34 million last year. San Francisco’s housing prices have risen so rapidly that one U.N. official called it a “human rights violation.”

In Los Angeles, where immigrants make up 35% of the population, home values shot up 50% in the past five years. Nine in ten homes are now unaffordable to the average L.A. resident.

“As of 2017, New York City is now home to more than three million foreign-born residents — making up about 37 percent of the total city’s population. This indicates that there are more foreign-born residents living in New York City today than there are people living in Chicago, Illinois; San Diego, California; and Houston, Texas.

“Coinciding with illegal and legal immigration that has increased New York City’s population, one-bedroom rents in the city, as well as two-bedroom rents, have grown to astronomical levels. The latest analysis by Zumper finds that median one-bedroom New York City rent is about $3,050 a month, growing 3.7 percent in August and beating out the last three-year, all-time high of median rents in June, which came in at $2,980 a month.

“Two-bedroom monthly rents in New York City also grew more than two percent this month, increasing the median rate to about $3,450 for the city’s residents.”

New York City can’t even provide for their own and yet they are giving special consideration to those breaking the rule of law. It makes no logical sense and it will hurt New Yorkers. In the name of political correctness, De Blasio and his affiliates are choosing illegal immigrants over actual New Yorkers and that is just wrong. Hopefully, they will vote him out next time around.

As Lou Di Leonardo, a former senior ICE official said at the San Francisco Chronicle: “For tens of millions of Americans, the rent is too high. Changing our immigration laws would bring it down.” Yes, it would. We need to reduce immigration-fueled population growth.

New Gay Bishop Says God Is A Woman

Published

on

I would never attend the Episcopal Church as a Christian. They have turned the gospel upside down on its head. Rev. Thomas Brown, who is married to a fellow priest, was ordained as a bishop of the diocese of Maine in the Episcopal Church June 22. Immediately following his ordination, Brown referred to God as a “she” twice in the Nicene Creed. I guess I’m old school… but I refer to God as a ‘he’. His gender doesn’t matter to me but his commandments and directives surely do.

“She is worshipped and glorified. She has spoken through the Prophets,” the just-ordained Bishop Brown stated, referring to the Holy Spirit. I find that offensive and nothing short of political pandering. The Nicene Creed was written 1,638 years ago and only uses masculine pronouns to refer to God. Oddly enough, the microphones at the Cathedral of St. Luke put forth Bishop Curry’s voice just fine for most of the creed, except for when he referred to God as a ‘she’.

From The Daily Caller:

“Deacon Todd Thomas of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington told the Daily Caller that he has never heard an Episcopal priest use female pronouns in the creed. Individual bishops and priests can, however, change words and phrases in the Nicene Creed, Deacon Thomas explained. He cautioned any changes to the creed should be done “in conversation” with the lay people.

“Deacon Thomas told the Daily Caller he has heard Episcopal priests use female pronouns for God outside of the context of official creeds.

“The Episcopal church has a tradition of interpreting the Book of Proverbs’ mentions of “Lady Wisdom” as referring to the Holy Spirit, Deacon Thomas said.

“Inclusive language” of God is encouraged by the Episcopal Church. This “means the use of male and female imagery and metaphors in a balanced way to express the truths we know of God,” the Episcopal Dictionary of the Church says.

“Bishop Brown describes himself as a “servant leader who strives for justice among all people and who continues to address white privilege, dismantle racism, and work for the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the Body of Christ.”

“The bishop met his husband, Father Tom Mousin, when Father Mousin was serving as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. Brown’s husband has since converted to the Episcopal Church, and been ordained in that church.

“It is possible that Father Mousin will take up a position at a parish in his husband’s diocese, he said on Facebook, explaining he would have oversight from an outside bishop.”

In 2018, the Episcopal Church mandated that all dioceses would perform same-sex marriages. It doesn’t matter whether the bishop objects or not, they are commanded to conduct the ceremony. William Love, the Episcopal bishop of Albany, New York is in a state of partial inhibition because he has declined to allow priests to celebrate same-sex weddings. In other words, he’s between a rock and a hard place over his church’s doctrine.

More from The Daily Caller:

“Twenty years before this resolution, Episcopal bishops at the Lambeth Conference rejected “homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.” They also voted that they “cannot advise the legitimizing or blessing of same-sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions.”

“A wider battle is brewing in the denomination over the subject of gay marriage. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby faces opposition from the Global Anglican Future Conference for inviting bishops in same-sex relationships to the last Lambeth Conference. At the same time, Episcopal church leaders have objected to Welby’s decision to not invite bishops’ same-sex spouses to the conference.

“Bishop Brown’s ordination is the second time a gay man with a partner was elected a bishop in the Episcopal Church. Gene Robinson was elected a bishop in 2003 but has since divorced his partner, Mark Andrew. Mary Glasspool, a lesbian married to Becki Sander, was elected a bishop suffragan in 2009 and was present at Brown’s ordination.”

My, how times have changed and the Episcopal Church no longer resembles what it once was.

My heart is filled with gratitude: for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine,who saw in Thomas James Brown, my spouse what I…

Posted by Thomas Mousin on Sunday, February 10, 2019

From 1990 to 1994, Brown worked as the director of education for Planned Parenthood in South Central Michigan. Why am I not surprised? He condones the slaughter of the unborn as well. Figures. In 2018, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for “women’s reproductive health and reproductive health procedures to be treated as all other medical procedures.”

Silly me, I have always thought that if you are a Christian, you follow the teachings of the Bible. You don’t twist them to fit your immorality, whims, or political agenda. If you do, you aren’t really a Christian, now are you? There is no such thing as ‘woke’ parishioners and clergy… just faux Christians.
