First, here is a quick word about The Trump Curse:
The Trump Curse has struck again! At the funeral for the Iranian terrorist-general blown to bits in a Trump-ordered air strike, 32 people were killed in a stampede and hundreds were injured.
Finally, some good news out of Iran!
Update: More good news on Iran! Iranian foreign minister is furious over the US decision to deny him a visa to address the United Nations in New York.
It’s funny that Nikitas3.com does not remember anyone in Iran being furious over the terrorism that Iran has unleashed on the world for 40 years, leading to the deaths and maiming and terrorizing of hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
Meanwhile the US Air Force staged a special-formation takeoff at an air base in Utah for 52 of one of our most advanced fighter jets.
The F-35A II Lightning fighters were part of the Active Duty 388th and Reserve 419th fighter wings at the Hill Air Force Base.
The number 52 is the same as the number of American hostages held in Iran in 1979-81. And president Trump has warned Iran that the US military will strike 52 Iranian targets if Iran attacks US interests or personnel again.
Hollywood Jokester Blows ‘Diversity’ Hoax Sky-High
British-born Hollywood comedian Ricky Jervais hosted the Golden Globes (herein referred to as the Golden Globs) award show on December 5 and he absolutely roasted the Hollywood elites.
But rather than offering the predictable and innocuous self-deprecation of the Tinseltown lifestyle and mindset, Jervais launched a raft of jokes that cut to the core of liberal Hollywood hypocrisy like nobody has done in recent memory.
And rather than the canned and predictable laughs that he might get from Trump-hater jokes or grade-school commentary about the breast size of a starlet, there was open scowling and dismay among the glitterati that they themselves had been genuinely hoisted on their own petards.
Here are some of Jervais’ jokes from the Globs. You could see the elites’ heads exploding as the funnies progressed:
[On hypocritical Hollywood] ‘You say you’re woke, but the companies you work for… unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS started a streaming service you’d call your agent wouldn’t you?’
[Introducing Sandra Bullock] ‘Our next presenter starred in Netflix’s Bird Box. A movie where people survive by acting like they don’t see a thing. Sort of like working for Harvey Weinstein.’
[On Apple+] ‘Apple roared into the TV game with The Morning Show, a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing… made by a company that runs sweatshops in China.’
[On political statements in acceptance speeches] ‘You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing of the real world, most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and f**k off.’
[On racial equality] ‘When I saw the list of (famous) people that have died (in 2019) it wasn’t diverse enough (for me to comment on). It was mostly white people, and I thought “No, not on my watch.”’
[On the #MeToo movement] ‘In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world and they all have one thing in common: they’re all terrified of Ronan Farrow.’ (Farrow exposed Harvey Weinstein and top CBS exec Les Moonves)
Hollywood is like all of American liberalism. It comes at you with a smile, a fascinating plot line and a $15 movie ticket, but behind the scenes it is red-faced in rage when it does not get everything that it wants, which is a lot in the Age of Trump.
Yes, they still have their money and their elegant mansions and their private jets and their TV appearances to bolster their massive egos. But they are furious that their every political wish is not being delivered on a silver platter as it was under Obama (nuclear empowerment of our enemy Iran, massive regulations strangling the economy, $4 a gallon gasoline, open borders, sex changers in libraries reading to the kids, etc.).
Oh, they all snickered smugly when the prospect of a Trump presidency was suggested, but today they are catatonic when a Trump presidency produces results for us real Americans like a strong, deregulated economy, cheap gasoline, more secure borders, rights for religious citizens and an Iranian terrorist-general blown to smithereens by an American air strike.
Already in a years-long foul mood since Trump was elected, these elites at the Golden Globs dinner-and-devotion event at the Hollywood Hilton were in full peacock, complete with white cloth tablecloths and napkins, fine silver, decked out screen queens with academic achievement levels and IQs much lower than an unemployed white male factory worker in Ohio, and armed guards protecting the event with the guns that the actors protest for the rest of us every other evening of the year.
Their rage at Jervais exposes the myth of Hollywood “diversity”. In other words, they want diversity of skin color and thought when it means muslims preaching their hatred of America or “black lives matter” calling for the killing of cops.
But when a Hollywood insider like Jervais actually dares to draw outside the coloring-book lines of Tinseltown decorum by mocking it in searing terms – i.e., attacking their very personal liberal hypocrisy – then the diversity of thought practiced by Jervais becomes not only unacceptable but as dangerous as an Amazon forest fire.
Jervais may have gone too far this time with his version of “diversity”. We shall see if he is invited back. Probably not.
Watch Out for Jewish Communist Michael Bloomberg
Michael Bloomberg is one of the richest men in the world with a fortune estimated at $45 billion. He is the seventh richest man in America. And he is running for president as a Democrat.
Watch out for this guy. He is a hard-left Jewish communist who is promoting a radical left-wing agenda. He even has apologized for and sought to explain away the repressive government of communist China by saying that China is not a dictatorship. This is really sick, but this is what we can expect from Democrats today.
He is also a gun-control fanatic. And we know that communist governments always disarm their people so we know where Bloomberg is going. Meanwhile here is how Bloomberg is using some of his vast wealth to usurp our elected governments. The Washington Examiner reported:
An organization financed by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is secretly underwriting an effort to plant left-leaning lawyers in state offices around the country, Republican attorneys general say.
“Bloomberg Philanthropies financed a group that is planting private attorneys into state attorneys general offices for the explicit purpose of pushing back against Trump’s regulatory rollbacks,” the Daily Caller reported over the weekend.
According to the publication, New York University’s State Energy and Environmental Impact Center, which Bloomberg’s philanthropy supported … with a $6 million grant, is working to “identify and hire NYU Law Fellows who serve as special assistant attorneys general in state attorney general offices, focusing on clean energy, climate and environmental matters.”
“What’s problematic is the arrangement through which a private organization or individual can promote an overtly political agenda by paying the salaries of government employees,” Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, a Republican, told the outlet.
“The ethical problems with this scheme are obvious,” Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton added. “Democratic state AG offices are taking on seasoned attorneys being paid by a radical liberal Democratic Presidential primary candidate.”
The organization has, in the past helped fund attorneys general who are fighting the Trump administration’s push to deregulate the energy industry.
So obviously Bloomberg is working far outside the lines. He is a snake. And he could be the Democrat nominee for president. We must never allow this marxist near the White House.
Update on leftist, anti-American Bloomberg from Breitbart News:
Investor, CEO, and presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg says he would allow investors and employers to hire the “the best” workers from around the world instead of Americans.
“This country needs more immigrants and we should be out looking for immigrants,” Bloomberg told the San Diego Union-Tribune on January 5.:
For those who need an oboe player for a symphony, we want the best one. We need a striker for a soccer team, we want to get the best one. We want a farmworker, we want to get the best one. A computer programmer, we want to get the best one. So we should be out looking for more immigrants.
The reporter did not ask Bloomberg to define “best.” But for cost-conscious shareholders and executives, “best” is a synonym for ‘cheaper than Americans.’
“If business were able to hire without restrictions from anywhere in the world, pretty much every [American’s] occupation would be foreignized,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.
And finally here is a Nikitas3.com commentary from 2018 that is still pertinent today:
Trump is the World’s Most Famous Person
In just one year in office US president Donald J. Trump has become the most famous person in the world. He already has become probably the single most recognizable global figure of the last 30 years. The only rivals who come to mind are US president Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II who was truly a beloved international figure as a religious leader to one billion Catholics.
When Nikitas3.com heard that president Trump was going to attend the globalist economic conference at the Davos ski resort in Switzerland I said that that sounded like a great idea, that he would tell them point-blank what they needed to hear about economic growth.
Well, Trump showed up at Davos and thanks to the president’s presence it got more international attention than ever. “I’ve been doing Davos for 15 or 16 years and I’ve never seen a reception like this,” said one on-air reporter. Everyone at Davos wanted to catch a glimpse of Trump. He was treated like a rock star.
Top European business leaders who dined with Trump all seemed happy to be with him. After all they have been seeking for years to get their economies moving and now this colorful American multi-billionaire has shown them how through a positive attitude and common-sense tax policies implemented in his first year in office.
Four things created the Trump Phenomenon:
*First and foremost Donald Trump is an American original. The world has been looking up to Americans for the last 150 years, since the beginning of the modern industrial age when America rose to prominence with its technological creativity, industrial might and economic leadership. Trump is truly the embodiment of the American rugged individualist who built our nation through hard work in the private sector.
*The American media made Trump seem much bigger than life through their maniacal coverage.
*Trump created his own outsized image through decades of media manipulation. He knows how to use the media since he has been a subject of the media for 40 years and has even been inside the media himself hosting The Celebrity Apprentice TV show, one of the most popular programs ever.
*Trump has created his own media controversies through his behavior and statements. This has elevated his profile whether you like it or not.
It was interesting to watch top Euro business titans sitting obediently at the dinner table in Davos while Trump dominated the picture. Those titans, stars in their own right, were merely window dressing compared to the US president. Trump even was physically bigger than they were. He indeed seemed bigger than life… because he is.
When Donald Trump announced in June 2015 that he was going to run for president he was laughed at. When he got the nomination he was dismissed. When he won the election, there was panic and they said not to worry, that he would be impeached and removed from office. Now that he has been in the White House for just one year he is the world’s most famous person and his fame is growing every day. This Davos appearance is putting even more high-octane fuel into the Trump tank.
There is a psychological dynamic at work here – that once people actually get to know Trump and see the success of his policies then that it is very different than seeing him on TV or reading about him in the Trump-hater media. Those who have met Trump like him very much. They say that he is polite and personable. He can be very funny and provocative in his offhand comments; we all have seen this and it helps him a lot. His rallies are upbeat events, better than a rock concert. He has been called a Blue Collar Billionaire.
Nikitas3.com has backed Trump from the start. I wrote on January 18, 2011 (yes, 2011) on the RedState website that ‘Trump Will Be Next US President’. I had heard him do a half-hour interview with Rush Limbaugh on the previous day and I knew immediately that he would someday be elected and do good things.
He has. Donald J. Trump is now the most famous person in the world.
If you asked 1,000 people all over the world who Theresa May is (prime minister of Britain); or Xi Jin Ping (communist leader of China); or Angela Merkel (chancellor of Germany) some would certainly know but most would not. But if you asked them about Donald J. Trump virtually everyone would know.
The Trump haters are beside themselves with the reception that the president got at Davos. They expected him to be shunned and mocked by the global business and intellectual elite, but he has been cheered and embraced and treated like a mega-celebrity. He even said in classic tongue-in-cheek Trump style, “This is like walking into the Academy Awards, except we have more photographers.”
He certainly is basking in the glow and who could blame him. He has beaten all the odds and put his critics in a hole. It is Trump who is rising as his critics fall down.
In just one year in office Donald J. Trump has done more to help the American and global economy than all of the eggheads at Davos have done in 30 years at their caviar-and-champagne receptions and black tie dinners.
And the longer that Trump serves, and the better the results that he gets, the more that the world is going to say, “What is it about Trump that we are supposed to hate? He actually seems like a good person.”
The Davos conference was founded in 1971 by Klaus Schwab, a German-born business professor at the University of Geneva (Switzerland). It annually brings 2,500 business and political leaders together at the ski resort of Davos in January.
There even is a Trump Curse to go along with his vast media persona. Dozens of people who have criticized the president from an ESPN reporter to the bilious comedian Kathy Griffin have suffered career misfortune. Two days after Oprah Winfrey gave a stemwinding speech at the Golden Globes awards ceremony and it was enthusiastically suggested that she run against Trump in 2020, her California property was inundated in a mudslide.
Oprah has since announced that she will not run, just as Nikitas3.com predicted.
Indeed Donald Trump is The Teflon Don. Nothing seems to stick to Trump even though everything imaginable has been thrown at him. Then it all bounces back and hurts the people who hurled it.
Nikitas3.com does not believe for a second that Trump will be impeached or removed from office. Nikitas3.com already is predicting that Trump will serve two terms and that he will end up being a very popular president.
Those of us over age 55 remember that Ronald Reagan also was hated by the same media who predicted that he would never be elected in the first place. Yet Reagan ended up being very popular. He won re-election in 1984 by winning 49 electoral states out of 50. His opponent Walter Mondale only won his home state of Minnesota.
Oh, certainly there are tens of millions of Americans who hate Trump, but that is true of any president including Obama. Yet Trump won 57% of the electoral votes in 2016 even though most Americans did not even know for certain what he was going to do. They just wanted some boldness. They got it.
Now that there is growing evidence that we are entering an economic boom period like we saw under Reagan, president Trump will become more popular both at home and abroad. As the ‘economic engine of the world’ the thriving United States economy will then stimulate growth worldwide. This will increase Trump’s stature globally.
And when the Russia collusion story finally is put to rest Trump’s popularity will spike. That story was designed specifically to bring down the president.
Trump has three other things going for him:
He has the common touch and is very patriotic. For instance, he is always respectful of cops and the military and they and their families appreciate that. After all, he attended New York Military Academy before college.
He has captured the hearts and minds of tens of millions of hard-working Americans. They see him as a champion of their cause. He speaks bluntly like they often do and they like that. He gets things done. He is not an intellectual who speaks in erudite tones like Obama and that horrible monotone of his. Trump has passion. And it shows.
President Trump’s wife and children are nice and well behaved people. Melania Trump is now The Most Glamorous Woman in the World. The president has never taken a sip of alcohol or used drugs while his children are smart, sober and hard-working, just like we all would like our own children to be. Millions of Trump haters are secretly envious of the president and his large family (he has five children and already has 9 grandchildren).
