I am so torn up over this sudden unexplained death, [ yet another one: I am still mourning my precious David Bowie ] I cannot really do a very good job of writing about it. For now, I am just posting some photos. There are too many unanswered questions. I’ll come home this evening after a day on the beach to try to write about the passing of this remarkable American music icon, so loved by the world, who we knew as simply ‘Prince’.
The Hollywood culture of southern California has long been perceived to be a firm bastion of the Far Left. Many conservative, moderate or centrist voices from ‘celebrity circles’ in southern Cali never make it to the airwaves, for the very same reason that Donald Trump has been painted by the Big Five Fake Media Psy Op [ ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, MSNBC ] as a deranged racist bigot, a lunatic “Hitler” figure. So today I am publishing the videos and celebrity endorsements of Donald Trump that America OUGHT to be seeing, which are being blacklisted and suppressed by the cartel’s alphabet news orgs, aka Bilderberg lap dogs. Be prepared to be amazed and delighted. I was.
In preparing this post I saw true signs of intelligent life coming out of Hollywood culture, and was relieved to find them. Just a few days earlier I had seen a horrific article published by a writer for the Huff Post which called for an “atheist president’ – endorsing known agnostic [ and former atheist until 2016, Bernie Sanders]. I refuse to link to the article. It’s idiotic trash like that piece which keeps me writing, researching and pouring my soul’s energy into the publishing of what little bits of truth in the world of media where I can find it, on this news blog and my others. In the perverse darkening climate which is now unfolding in this country and around the world, the last thing in the known universe we all need is “an atheist president” in America. I vowed the day I saw that article to NEVER read the Huffington Post again. It won’t be a problem for me, since so little of what is published on the site reflects the true American values that the majority of the people of this nation adhere to, and have for generations.
Here are just a few of the many hundreds of Hollywood celebrities who have ‘come out of the closet’ as Donald Trump supporters in recent weeks. I’m a big movie buff and some of these folks I have watched on the Big Screen for decades. It’s some comfort to know that not EVERYONE in Hollywood worships at the feet of hidden perversity, cloaked in public image maintenance appearances which dazzle vulnerable young people, who are always looking for something or someone they can believe in. There is so little left in this nation’s swollen, festering, infected pop culture still worth believing in, that it’s easier just to tune out the Satanic noise and rejoice in the silence. Here are a few exceptions. These videos represent just a small sampling of public endorsements out of the many thousands of Hollywood celebrities, artists, musicians, theatre people, technicians, and public figures who support Trump, but choose for their own reasons to remain quiet about it.
You gotta love politics for it’s supreme mockability and pure, natural hilarity. All it takes to make an audience lose it laughing so hard is Comedy Queen Tina Fey getting into character, once again, as Sarah Palin. This spoof aired on last night’s Saturday Night Live show on January 23rd 2016.
Tina’s been at these dead-on comic character spoofs of Sarah Palin for quite some time. It all started with the skit below, when viewers noted that Tina actually looks enough like Palin to make a rather striking parody. Here’s Tina Fey back in September of 2008 spoofing Sarah Palin with Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton:

Some pop stars are just jerks, and there is really no other way to state it. The Material Girl built a multi-million dollar career on being outrageous – flaunting her disrespect for, well basically anything normal [ morals, limits, monogamy, et al ] but in her 50s, approaching 60, her touring life is hitting an all time low. Yes, we know she is embroiled in a bitter custody battle over her son, but everyday in America millions of other parents have to go into courtrooms and fight for the custody of their children too. They usually don’t decide to act out and show brazen displays of public drunkenness as a result. They wisely know that behaving in such a manner might not sit well with the judge. In Madonna’s case, she has always more or less considered herself to be just a little bit ‘above the law’. I’m sure there is a whole string of misbehaving incidents she’s been caught in that would get any other average American Joe or Jane quickly arrested and thrown in the slammer. But all we can do is blog about it. No one is going to approach the aging Queen of Pop with any really loud complaints. After all, she’s not that relevant anymore.
Odds are she’s touring because she actually needs the money. Can you imagine? How does someone go through nearly a half billion dollars in less than 20 years? I’m just saying. One thing people in the south can do is just stop buying tickets to her middle aged concerts, where she now stands on stage and openly mocks her audience, who she assumes to be too stupid and / or country-fied to actually catch the overt disdain for them which is rolling out of her mouth. Besides that, her stage show is [ ahem ] OVERTLY DEMONIC and all you southern born upstanding Christian people are not supposed to be supporting trash like that anyway. So what do y’all have to save for your sorry selves? Shame on ya for buying a trashy ole Madonna concert ticket in the first damn place! Who needs to see a close relative of the Great Whore of Babylon out there writhing around drunk in front of gaggle of red and black gay-boy demons in Satanic headdresses? I sure don’t.

I’ve been truly shaken to learn of David Bowie’s untimely death. I had to sit down when I saw the headline. No one ever expects the death of one of their childhood heroes. Throughout the morning as I put together these tributes, I listened to the full tracks of Black Star, while I worked. Any man, quietly dying of cancer, who worked on perfecting his latest studio release up until the very last days of his own life to present a final work of musical art for the world, is a man we can all love and admire for his courage, his undying talent, his dignity, his refusal to elicit pity, his dedication to his music, and his determination to set his own pain aside in order to give the world one last gift of music and personal creativity.
It’s personal for me. I have loved this man and his music and art for decades, literally, since I was a very young teen in the 1970s, struggling with my own sexual identity. Trying to find my own way in a very messed up family, in an oppressive mostly fundamentalist small town in the south, I papered the walls of my teenage bedroom with Bowie photos and blasted his music through the house at all hours, much to the despair of my parents, who thought he was the most bizarre assemblage of a human being they had ever seen. All the more reason for me to turn up the volume, I thought. David Bowie could well be credited for being one of the reasons I did not commit suicide as a gay teen. Seriously. Thank you David, for letting me know it was ‘ok’ for me to just be ME in 1972. Gay people were still being beat up and dragged behind trucks in parts of the deep south, and it wasn’t that much better in central North Carolina, where being gay meant living a double life, having “fake boyfriends” in high school to survive and sneaking into gay bars with a fake ID at age 17 in the hopes you might find others who were as different as you were, who were also finding a way to cope.
It turned out eventually, much to everyone’s surprise, that David Bowie was NOT gay, although to look at him in the early seventies that might have been considered arguable. He was one of the first popular musicians other than 1960s rocker ‘Little Richard’ to publicly flaunt his feminine side, so androgynous in some early photos that any decent drag queen might have been jealous. He was rumored to have had a wild sexual affair with Mick Jagger in the early seventies, and sexual androgyny was a frequent theme in his early songs. David Bowie finally arrived at the altar, was twice married, and has surviving adult two children: Duncan Jones and Alexandria Jones.
“Planet Earth is a lot bluer today without David Bowie, the greatest rock star who ever fell to this or any other world. He was the hottest tramp, the slinkiest vagabond, the prettiest star who ever shouted “You’re not alone!” to an arena full of the world’s loneliest kids. He was the most human and most alien of rock artists, turning to face the strange, speaking to the freak in everyone. He stared into your twitchy teenage eyes to assure you that you’ve torn your dress and your face is a mess, yet that’s precisely why you’re a juvenile success.” – Rolling Stone Magazine 1.11.2016
It’s quite clear after listening to Black Star, that David well knew his days were numbered, yet he kept working, right up until the very end. It was only two nights ago that late night host Jimmy Fallon announced Bowie’s latest album release on his show, displaying the stark enigmatic cover art, which was only a large black star on a white field, the only Bowie album not to display a photo of him.
If you are unfamiliar with Bowie, wading through tribute posts and articles, I’d like to recommend that you read one particular article about him from start to finish, as it says the most about who he really was and how his art was a real embodiment of emotionally distilled moments from his life, which had a huge impact on others, even upon history itself:

I finally hit the wall tonight as I looked up from my computer work while the TV played in the background and was subjected to the zoomed in close up sight of a bloody severed man’s tongue being presented in a box to a character on ‘The Blacklist’. Just a few minutes earlier I had a plate of food in front of me. I would have certainly had a hard time holding down my meal had that scene played while I was eating. You know that TV has hit the absolute all time low when you have to plan NOT to be eating a meal when “The Blacklist” airs.
This wild slide toward all-out visual depravity on TV has come to the point where it is time for million of viewers to begin saying “NO!” to these scenes. It’s disgusting and it’s uncalled for. There is a way to tell this story without resorting to such displays. The level of violence that we are being subjected to on “primetime television” has escalated steadily in recent years specifically because too few people are speaking their minds and are choosing instead to watch the shows and just try to turn away at the “hideous” parts. The problem is, the “hideous” parts now take up most of the show.
James Spader should not be agreeing to participate in these TV programmed demonstrations of wickedness, cruelty and depravity. He knows better. He’s a seasoned and distinguished actor who shouldn’t just go all along with whatever they tell him he has to portray. Where does it end?
Will we be subjected to live snuff films in TV programming on primetime soon? With all the police shootings it’s already coming close to that. Why aren’t more people speaking out to say ENOUGH already with the explicit stomach turning gore?
I’d like to ask the WP community to please join me in an email social media and online campaign to ask NBC to clean up their TV programming. I’m not willing or interested in watching another single episode of TV that’s so raw and bloody that I nearly lose my dinner.
Here’s how NBC can begin to get a clue: When there is some actual scriptwriting TALENT involved, the show won’t have to resort to the cheap shots that display horror movie moments that turn the entire franchise into not much more than a new version of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” And just so you know NBC, I don’t need to watch TV at all. I lived for 8 years without owning one. Period. We can all choose to dump our TV sets in the river and plant flower gardens instead. Script some actual helpful, inspiring, uplifting and innovative dramas and documentaries that don’t revolve around explicit violence and your ratings will start to spike again in the right direction. I would never want any child to learn about adulthood by imitating what he or she was exposed to by watching a TV show like The Blacklist. Some little child or distressed tween someday soon will think it’s ok to try to cut her friend’s tongue out one day while playing in the backyard, because she saw it done on The Blacklist. And the karmic liability and accountability of that moment will fall squarely on the shoulders of NBC when that happens.
Here’s the note I wrote to NBC this evening. If you are as disgusted as I am by what these networks are airing under the very thin guise of “entertainment” then please write NBC and tell them so.
To NBC: I’m XX years old & have been watching NBC all my life. The level of horror, gore & explicit portrayals of violence you are airing on The Blacklist has escalated steadily since the show began. I’ve had to get up and leave the room on more than one occasion while watching the show. I was just subjected to the explicit image of a man’s severed bloody tongue on tonight’s episode. This is ridiculous, disgusting & uncalled for. In millions of homes there are small children sitting watching this show. How dare your executives allow this kind of violent depravity to air on TV disguised as “entertainment.” There is a way to tell this story without stooping to such a low level of sensationalism & gore. I will refuse to watch NBC if you don’t do something about the level of sick images & actions you are portraying in this show. Do something about this. It’s repellent, uncalled for. If you would not let your own children watch – then change it.”
The word “inspire” has been greatly debauched and debased by it’s current association with the epitome of black human evil through affiliation with ISIS and their terror publications. This creeping evil now seeks to twist not only young minds through the hideous misuse of social media and the internet, but also seeks to alter the meanings of the very words that are used to bring hope to the species. It’s time to take back the word INSPIRE and put it in it’s rightful place again, as the hopeful epitome of of how we respond when we see the very best of ourselves reflected back to us, often born as an exceptional young person, genetically gifted, capable of doing remarkably wonderful and truly good things which can affect humanity’s future in a decidedly positive fashion. If we employ our own media to fight to save our most precious ideas, concepts, even our most cherished words and gifted young people, then we will deserve the awful outcomes of such neglect which will ensue over time.
“It’s time to take back the word INSPIRE and put it in it’s rightful place again, as the hopeful epitome of how we respond when we see the very best of ourselves reflected back to us, often born as an exceptional young person, genetically gifted, capable of doing remarkably wonderful and truly good things which can affect humanity’s future in a decidedly positive fashion.”
American news media outlets like CNN routinely choose to focus on the lowest common denominator in human society, broadcasting what is most salacious, dramatic, extreme or bloody for days on end, beating the dismal moment of human evil to death by glorifying it, while also ignoring the many moments in human life when we should be celebrating the most brilliant and innovative young minds which are coming up among the species. Genius often springs from the raw humus of the human gene pool from the most unlikely or unexpected places. We should celebrate and nurture these gifts which come in the form of superbly exceptional young human beings, affording them every opportunity to excel, thrive and inspire.
We ought to be looking for human excellence everywhere, and exalting it, by broadcasting it to others as REAL inspiration, rather than choosing to broadcast the most regrettable moments of typical morbid human evil every day. People will ALWAYS emulate what they see broadcast on TV and films. That fact is a given. Choose to broadcast the better side of human nature, rather than exaggerating the worst, and you can literally begin turning the tide of rising darkness around the world. Our US media monoliths urgently need to learn this lesson, if they want to avoid the approaching utter social calamity in America’s culture, which they profess to serve.
Here are some brief portraits of young geniuses from around the world which can inspire and bring hope that our future can be brighter than the dismal current reality which is being broadcast into our homes each day.

It doesn’t take a very big flying leap to arrive at a thesis for what seeing a new movie release in a film theater might be like in just a few more years. Super realistic high definition 7D holography can bring wild animals leaping from the screen right over the movie goers heads, or have an astronaut float out of the film frame and right into the midst of the audience. I would venture to speculate that by the end of 2015 we might see the first public test screenings of 7D holographic enhanced film releases. If the technology can be affordably and smoothly deployed to enhance existing films and popular older films, [ imagine ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ enhanced with 7D holography – wow! ] we could soon see a whole new explosion of profitable re-releases of films like The Transformers franchise, most all science fiction films, travelogues, feature length cartoons and more.
