HOLLYWOOD’S BETRAYAL

I’m not star struck. I am, however, political, and due to the powerful influence that Hollywood has upon the nation, I do keep an eye on what’s going on there. Wow. What a bunch of freaks. Also, having long ago made an attempt to break into Hollywood myself as a screen and television writer, I am painfully aware of the widespread cheating and outright theft of creative material that exists within Hollywood’s production side. With some exceptions, the behind-the-scenes world of America’s motion picture and television industries is one big bucket of swap scum. And while I have no experience in dealing with it, my instincts tell me that the very same is true with America’s music industry. But what can we expect? These people comprise the entertainment arm of the very same corporate media collective (CMC) that delivers to America a daily dose of demagogic manipulation of fact regarding current events, and then unabashedly calls it journalism. We now call their product “fake news.”

This term, “fake news” was actually coined by former President Obama’s team during the 2016 US Election out of frustration when the presumed DNC successor to Obama, Hillary Rodham-Clinton was rejected by the majority in America who could legally vote. This obvious frustration of no longer being able to manipulate the vote by skewed polls being reported by fraud-journalists and broadcast in hypnotic repetition led the Obama team to attack the nation’s rising true journalism (such as Breitbart) with this term “fake news” but which was, and in such a delicious irony, then turned 180-degrees back towards them – the “real fake news,” or corporate media collective – and perhaps most notably, by President Trump himself.

While the extremes of Hollywood’s bizarre and shameful reaction to the Trump Presidential victory was a surprise to most conservatives, it was not a surprise to me, as I was expecting to see some variation of exactly what has played out since November 8, 2016. I was expecting this reaction for two reasons. The first being that, and as the much maligned former Senator from Wisconsin, Joe McCarthy pointed out, Hollywood is filled with ardent communists, and to that I add, a whole lot of socialists, too. President Donald J. Trump is the antithesis of either a communist or a socialist, thus, the outcome of the election was the antithesis of their tender little hopes and dreams of a continued undermining of American sovereignty and furthering the cause of globalist-socialism. (These popular but self-destructive Utopian ideologies are an inclination that, and sadly so, exists in the overly-idealistic and unrealistic minds of so many creative and artistic people.) And what happens when members of this praise-hungry group’s every spoken word are not met with sycophantic exaltation or they do not get their way? A petulant frenzy.

But there is a second reason why I was expecting this sort of reaction from Hollywood, and it is also what I believe to be the root cause for the exacerbation of the condition brought about by the first reason, which, due to the almost inconceivably narcissistic nature of many screen and television actors and actresses, as well as musicians, should have burnt out on its own by now. This second reason is found in the motivations of the big money earners in Hollywood. Those for whom receiving a percentage of the profits of a single block-buster film equates to a king’s ransom.

I realize that while sometimes I take the long road in getting to my point, it usually pays off for the reader to follow me, so bear with me on this, please. And while this next point may seem a bit off topic, it is in fact relevant to the greater point, that being the suggestion that the CMC may harbor a propensity to manipulate, not only the outcome of American elections, but US trade relations and economic policy, as well.

It is amazing to me how self-glorifying and full of themselves are the various high-profile members of the CMC, especially those from Hollywood. Just think of all the televised awards programs. On and on they go about themselves. Amidst all their self-praise, on occasion, and usually in the process of some form of licking their own boots, their arrogance will lead them to inadvertently expose some unflattering aspect of themselves or their industry.

The airing of the CBS program 60 Minutes, coincidentally preceding the second Presidential Debate, on Sunday, October 9, 2016, was one of those occasions.

As a blogger analyzing and reporting on past, present and potential future US and world events, this program was a gold mine. Not that it was filled with the product of good journalism, but instead, valuable information in terms of the lengths the CMC was willing to go to in what could be regarded by some as an attempt to manipulate the outcome of a presidential election. This segment began with a story on the potential for America to one day face the prospect of nuclear war and America’s readiness, or lack thereof, to meet such a challenge, for which the summary conclusion was that the prospect was, “greater than one might think,” and that the nation’s readiness for war was intact. Now, either by pure coincidence or something more nefarious (and unless some CBS executive comes forward we will never know which it is) for weeks prior to the airing of this piece, the Clinton Campaign had been running television commercials carrying a message intended to instill a fear of the possibility of nuclear war, and that in the face of such a challenge, a Clinton presidency was the nation’s best choice. (Okay, now hold in your mind the image of Hillary, and in that infamous condescending tone, cackling, “Oh! Conspiracy theory!”)

But now to the purpose, it was the show’s later segment on the current relationship between China and the American movie industry that served to illuminate me on this matter of Hollywood’s hypocrisy and betrayal of America. This 60 Minutes segment revealed that, on average, and due to China’s vast population, the staggering profits that are made here in America on a block-buster movie are calculated by a multiplier of approximately 1.5 when the movie hits the box office in China. This CBS program also revealed that it has been only in recent years that Chinese sensors have been allowing Hollywood’s movies into the still strict communist nation, and that the reason the sensors have become lenient is due to the current trade deals that are making so many citizens of Communist China into millionaires. (Remember, every communist is a liar and a hypocrite!) I’ll reiterate: the wealth that would normally be circulating in the American economy, but, and due to self-injurious trade deals either promoted or supported by former Presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama, has found its way to China, has opened the door for Hollywood to slip its movies past Chinese sensors, and reap the big money earners in Hollywood a multiplier of approximately 1.5 on their motion picture productions.

This is the very same trade arrangement that since the middle 1990s so many pro-America economists warned would destroy the American working and middle-classes, and which President Donald J. Trump has threatened to renegotiate. If you’re still reading, then you’re most likely smart enough to comprehend by now what appears to be the real motivation behind Hollywood’s virulent anti-Trump movement.

Like former Presidents Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama, who sequentially sold the American people down the Yangtze River for the benefit of the obviously America-hating manufacturing industry, so has now the obviously America-hating Hollywood big money earning sector sold the American people down the Yangtze River yet again, and now for the sake of greater profits upon their already immense movie profits. See? Every communist is a liar and a hypocrite.

And now, We the People suffer a daily barrage of condemnation and ridicule by the CMC, who in their vain efforts to shame those of us who support President Trump, are simultaneously working to inflame the passions of anti-American radicals (ANTIFA, etc.) living within the USA, and whether the CMC is intentionally trying to incite violent insurgency within the USA or not (which, I believe, if it were to be the case, would be a serious felony), it is at the least inadvertently accomplishing just that.

Just like the CMC’s demagogic propagandists, who while masquerading as journalists, push their “fake news” out to the American people every day in hopes of leading the USA towards continued self-injury, so has the CMC’s entertainment arm, Hollywood, proven its disloyalty to the American people through its willingness to rob the American working and middle classes of domestic industry all so that they can heap greater profits atop already immense profits.

Based upon these discoveries, one rational deduction would be to assume that Hollywood’s big money earners are doing all they can to both pressure and rally those beneath them, to keep the fires of division burning in America in hopes that the Trump Administration will be too otherwise encumbered to tackle the China trade arrangement. I’ve deduced this because, at this time, Hollywood’s smaller earners, in their having taken on the role of some sort of social goon squad, do in fact seem to be doing all they can to incite an atmosphere of obstruction towards the Trump Administration in the public’s eye. In reality, what they are obstructing is the return of good paying jobs – the kind that only come from thriving industry – back to their own parents, siblings, children, extended family, friends, neighbors and countrymen. How selfish.

In my opinion, Senator Joe McCarthy was no liar, and Hollywood truly is a bucket of commie swamp scum, and collectively, an enemy of the American people. And I’ll say it yet one more time: every communist is a liar and a hypocrite.

I am going to do my part as an American citizen and boycott, to the best of my ability, the product of Hollywood. And while I will not cut out of my life those around me who do not follow me in this effort, I will constantly remind them that patronizing the product of Hollywood, is, in my opinion, the enrichment of people who either hate America, or who could not care less about the USA’s welfare, as well as being the enrichment of Communist China’s new oligarchy, the latter being an un-American act, and ultimately serving to add to the great injuries the American people are already suffering.

THE KINDER AND GENTLER FORM OF SLAVERY

Through the millennia, and in all four quarters of the globe, men and women have faced the challenge of living under one form of tyranny or another. This state of the human condition originates in the matter of the human conscience, or lack thereof. Those men and women with a conscience seek fair and equitable relations with others, while those without a conscience see those who strive towards such things as being weak and ripe for exploitation. Thus, the human condition is such that those without conscience will always strive to subjugate those whose conscience bars them from subjugating others. That this condition places those with a conscience at a great disadvantage is incontrovertible. Ergo, from the time of ancient Sumer, men and women of conscience have been striving towards building law-based government of society for the purpose of balancing the inequity between men and women of conscience, and those without conscience, the latter whom we refer to now in this modern age as sociopaths. History teaches that none have been one-hundred-percent successful in building the perfect society. I believe that, and due to the nature of mankind, Utopia is an impossibility. But what was started in the American colonies in 1776, and what it has evolved into since that time, is, as far as my research has yielded, the best that humanity is capable of in making a civilized society.

Free your mind from the sociopaths’ deception by allowing yourself to meditate for just a moment on this notion: Based upon what we have been taught about history, give consideration to the varying states of the world over the past 5,000 years. Consider that the age of the USA (241 years) spans less than five-percent of that 5,000 year block of time, and yet, within this small fraction of humanity’s civilized experience, this nation has legally established the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by all men and women regardless of color or religion – legally established rights that the nation’s courts uphold for everyone year after year. Consider that what has happened within America’s borders in this relatively short period of time has not only made an impression upon the whole world, but changed a large potion of the world for the better, as well as not only having exposed the forces of tyranny, but having put those tyrannical forces on the defensive. If the preceding words do not lead one to understand the importance of the USA’s constitutional form of government, in its unadulterated and undiluted form, as it relates to the positive evolution of the whole world, then I believe one is utterly unreachable. Moreover, if in regards to the nation’s courts recognizing equality among all men and women, one cites the rocky road from America’s first days to the achievements of this present day as proof of a flaw in America or the Constitution, then one is either an idiot or a liar, because society’s developing in this manner is the way of humanity.

Under a law-based system wherein the inalienable rights of the individual are both recognized and protected by government, the sociopath is given no advantage. However, under any other form of government, be it monarchy, dictatorship, communism, socialism, fascism, tribalism, etc., the sociopath is given a definite advantage. The sociopath thrives in an environment of tyranny, and thus the sociopath is always working towards, or supporting, the establishment of tyranny. And while the condition of tyranny is formally defined as oppressive rule by government, fundamentally, I regard it as being just another form of slavery, but in this case, the ‘slave owner’ is comprised of the administrators of the state. Slavery is amongst the most vile things that men and women devoid of conscience have forced upon the world, and it manifests in various forms. The oldest form of slavery is chattel slavery, and next to it, monarchy’s division by class renders the peasant a slave to the aristocracy. The vassalage of the old world, and debt-slavery created by usury, were later forms. In modernity, communism, socialism and fascism not only make slaves of the masses to the administrators of each of these systems, but strive towards even the regulation of the individual’s thoughts. In the case of any man or woman who has their right to follow a path of their own choosing to their desired life’s destination, countermanded by the tyranny of fascism, socialism, communism, etc., by this they are made just as much a slave as was any man or woman who lived in human bondage in ancient Egypt, in ancient Greece or Rome, in Arabia, under the British monarchy, or as a chattel slave or indentured servant in early America.

In every successful used car salesman there must exist some measure of sociopathy. It’s a job requirement. That is why so many men who are disliked for other reasons connected to anti-social or dishonest behavior are associated with used car salesmen. No one can sell as well as a sociopath because the sociopath’s advantage is both the ability to deceive and a lack of conscience. By adulthood, the sociopath has developed the skill of telling people what they want hear in order to achieve his or her own personal goals. Thus, the sociopaths have instilled in the minds of many women and men that systems of government such as communism, socialism and fascism are ‘kinder, gentler forms of slavery’ – forms of slavery that can be trusted. This pitch zeroes in on a frailty in the human character which gives some men and women the inclination towards, and preference for, being ruled over in exchange for being taken care of (the tranquility of servitude) versus bravely living lives of liberty and self-determination. However, there must also be some measure of sociopathy within all who acquiesce to, and support, communistic, socialistic and fascistic movements, due to the selfishness required to willingly support the state’s confiscation and redistribution of one’s neighbors property and assets (theft) as well as the selfishness required to willingly cast one’s neighbor into a state of subservience to the state (slavery). Indeed it takes a special variety of either deviate or dummy (or both) to willingly make slaves of their own family and friends, as well as their neighbors and countrymen. This last statement takes on a greater significance in regards to this present day, as there exists tomes of historical records to demonstrate beyond any doubt the heinous brutality and mass murder the sociopathic administrators of communism, socialism and fascism will engage in once in power. I find it inconceivable that anyone mentally capable of tying a pair of shoes cannot see the danger in handing over such power to those men and women with a desire to rule over others, as well as the inability to grasp the fact that under any of the Utopian systems, ultimately, the parasites will outnumber the producers, and at that time, the money will stop flowing, the food and medicine will run short, the boilers will go cold and the lights will go out.

Outrageous is the hypocrisy of the Democrats, the liberals and the progressives (as well as those actual communists, socialists, fascists, etc., operating within America) to constantly, and from one side of their mouths, denounce the obvious evils of chattel slavery in early America (something the Democratic party supported at that time) but then from the other side of their mouths, to tout the so-called benefits of the ‘kinder gentler forms of slavery’ found in communism, fascism and socialism. And beyond their hypocrisy, they lie outright. The last 100 years have proven that ‘kinder and gentler they are not, and that communism, socialism and fascism are in fact among the most brutal forms of slavery. While a large portion of those who just this past year were ‘with her’ or ‘feeling the Bern’ will prove to be unreachable (sociopaths cannot be reasoned with based upon ‘right or wrong’, but do understand the concept of consequences) it is now up to America’s conservatives to remind as many of them as is possible that slavery in any form is wrong.
