The Torch Has Been Passed…Sort Of
To The 68 Democrats That Refused to Attend The Inauguration:
You have the right to speak your mind, but you do not have the right to set aside your constituents for political purposes. You have chosen to ignore the people that you took an oath to represent. You have set a terrible example to all the world as to what kind of nation we are…”One nation under God!”
What Happened to Hollywood?
This is part 2 of a two part article. Being an important topic, we did not want to exclude important points that would add to the understanding of the subject matter. We conclude the article:
“A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within…for the traitor appears not to be a traitor…he rots the soul of a nation…he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.”
“We can’t expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they wake up one day to find that they have Communism.”
As a preface, this article is not about your run-of-the-mill ‘modern Communist’ that demands free health care, a free college education, or welfare for life. We are discussing card-carrying, hard-core, loyal to the Soviet Union style Communists.
Even though the communists were strongest in the Screen Writers Guild, influencing the content of movies within a highly controlled studio system, especially after the war, proved tricky. Hollywood Communists (the Party) were most successful in preventing content rather than creating content. Enter the Story Analysts Guild, organized by the Party. Story analysts judged scripts for content and treatment. A negative report would, in most cases, cause a studio to pass on a project. Thus, many scripts were suppressed which had any anti-Soviet content or scripts that showed religion and capitalism in a positive light.
Even some talent agents answered to Stalin. Party organizer Robert Weber worked for the famous William Morris agency, where many Communist writers and directors were represented. These agencies held considerable sway as to who worked and who didn’t work. George Willner, a Communist agent that represented screenwriters, deliberately held non-communist clients’ stories preventing many scripts from becoming reality. Smear campaigns were used by the Party to prevent famous non-communists from working such as Barabara Stanwyck, Lana Turner and Bette Davis.
These celebrities were among the many actors thwarting the Party-backed labor group, the Conference of Studio Unions (CSU). The CSU was trying to shut down the studios, attempting to take control of studio labor, while the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), which had the power of the studios, was trying to keep them open. Strikes and violence broke out. The Battle of Warner Brothers (WB) ensued in 1945. Cars were overturned, the WB fire department turned their fire hoses on the crowd and WB private police threw gas grenades into the strikers.
Celebrities took sides. Kathryn Hepburn supported the CSU, reading speeches written by communist screen writer, Dalton Trumbo. Ronald Reagan, then a Democrat, headed the anti-communists in the talent guilds.
With other studios breaking out in violence, the prospect of Communists taking over Hollywood prompted Washington to scrutinize the situation, which resulted in an investigation by the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HCUAA), the first head of which was New York Democrat, Samuel Dickstein. Incredibly, Mr. Dickstein was found, through intercepted Soviet cables, to be working for Russian intelligence, strictly for money. After the war, the committee was dominated by right-wing Republicans.
During the war, the HCUAA argued for the internment of Japanese Americans and considered looking into the KKK in 1946, but decided not to, pushed by committee member, John E. Rankin (D-Miss), who remarked, “After all, the KKK is an old American institution.”
The HCUAA foolishly concentrated on film content and ignored testimony from industry giants like Walt Disney that it was not what the Party put in films, but the anti-communist material the party kept out of films.
Studio heads, although anti-communist, became defensive, asserting that no congressman could tell them how to run their business. Celebrities like Humphrey Bogart and Danny Kaye defended their co-workers. The hearings became a series of angry tirades by Stalinist writers, which became known as the Hollywood Ten.
Fearing bad publicity, studios did agree to fire known communists. This was the beginning of the blacklist so consecrated by the Hollywood left as a neo-inquisition. Many writers survived by becoming ghostwriters, selling scripts using fake names. It was ironic that the writers extolled the evils of capitalism while using the same to feed their families in the manner in which they had become accustomed, which would never have existed in a communist system.
By the 1960s, the blacklist was over and many writers’ names were restored to film credits, thanks to Otto Preminger and Kirk Douglas. Hollywood then proceded to deify the Hollywood Ten as gods of virtue.
Through the years, the Communist Party’s influence on Hollywood, the hearings, the Hollywood Ten, have all become sanitized as to the linkage to Stalin and the USSR. The true nature of much of Hollywood’s ‘golden years’ has become clouded in legend which became myth.
The Hollywood paradox, which remains to this day, is that the Hollywood Communists, as the modern Hollywood left, as well as multitudes now in our government, media, and education system, hide behind the Constitution. They protect communism by invoking their civil liberties that wouldn’t last the blink of an eye in the system they are trying to establish. They demand their First Amendment right to assemble and speak their minds, even if their objective is the extermination of our country and the freedoms we enjoy.
When do civil liberties end and collusion with foreign powers and sedition commence?

News You Can Use
Michigan Teacher Won’t Let Students Watch Trump Inauguration Speech
A teacher in Michigan reportedly will not allow his fourth-grade students to watch Trump’s inaguration speech. In an email to parents, Brett Meteyer will allow his students to watch the inauguration ceremony, but he will not allow them to hear Trump’s speech because of fear of what Trump might say. No word on whether the students were shown the speech. Fox News, Washington Examiner, Truth Revolt
Editor’s note: Teaching the young to be snowflakes and using children to make a political statement…an absurdity. Another illustration of why Democrats are having such a difficult time. Hard to believe these people are allowed to teach our kids.
Man Tries To Set Himself On Fire to Protest Trump Inauguration
A man attempted to light himself on fire in front of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night. The man was hospitalized with burns, but they were not life threatening. Fox News
Editor’s note: “…and then you’ll be sorry!”
Clinton Global Initiative Shutting Down
The Clinton Foundation has announced they are laying off 22 employees. The Clinton’s are moving ahead with plans to shut down the Clinton Global initiative amid dwindling donations. It is not clear how many employees will remain with the Clinton Foundation. Fox News, Breitbart
Editor’s note: If this was indeed a charitable organization, why would they shut it down? Do they no longer want to do good works? The answer is simple. The Clintons were selling access and policy that they can no longer offer. The benefactors, past and prospective, saw no reason to donate or continue to donate. I wonder if anyone has asked for their money back. The swamp is beginning to drain.
So, What If Trump Dies Tomorrow? – CNN
With President-Elect Trump having taken the oath of office on Friday, CNN saw fit, on Wednesday, to ask “What if Trump is assassinated? Townhall
Editor’s note: Never in my lifetime have I seen such venom, such hatred for a presidential candidate or a President-Elect…disgraceful!
Pro-Lifers Not Welcome in Women’s March on Washington, D.C.
The Women’s March on Washington has removed the pro-life group New Wave Feminists from its list of official event sponsors. The group’s statement concerning New Wave was that it was listed in error. National Review
Editor’s note: Anyone who wants information on the Women’s March on Washington can find it on the Communist Party USA’s website (cpusa.org).
In Case You Missed It
Eisenhower & Trump In Same Boat
Trump may very well find himself in the same situation as President Eisenhower. During the 1950s, the relationship between the CIA and the NSA was badly strained. Documents show the CIA left the NSA out of one operation which the NSA read about in the newspapers when the Soviets discovered it in 1956. Other documents show a number of intelligence failures relating to the USSR and Eastern Europe with additional failures relating to Stalin’s development of the hydrogen bomb. Eisenhower had had enough and brought in people from outside the government to improve America’s intelligence capabilities.
Eisenhower established the President’s Board of Consultants on Intelligence Activities. Carter abolished the board in 1977, but Reagan reestablished it in 1981. Obama made little use of it and drastically cut its membership.
Trump has recently had a situation where “fake news” was presented to the President-Elect by U.S. intelligence officials AND leaked to the media. Trump blasted the intelligence agencies for allowing a false and fictitious report to be leaked to the public and called on the agencies to apologize.
Bob Woodward, the famed journalist called the “fake news” a garbage document not worthy of an intelligence briefing. Conservative Base

Dumb Political Quotes
“Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday.”
Joy Behar on Economics, 2009
“The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs.”
Jerry Brown, former governor of California and candidate for re-election, 1995
Editor’s note: Mission accomplished!
“Eight more days and I can start telling the truth again.”
Senator Chris Dodd, on the campaign trail, 1996
Global Warming or Climate Change
Has anyone noticed that the mantra of Global Warming has now become the drone of Climate Change? Why? Because they don’t have the slightest sense of what is going on. Many scientists now say we are cooling.
The earth’s climate has always changed. We’ve always had global warming then global cooling with cooling being the most dangerous, resulting in shorter growing seasons which dooms crop production.
43% of climate scientists say they are 95% sure that man-made CO2 is the dominant driver of climate change. So, all we have to do is get rid of a few billion people…solved. I understand that many Islamists are working on the problem.
Global cooling can result in drought in many parts of the world. Drought stricken California, whose biggest crop is left-wing nuts, after much recent rain, just let several trillion gallons of fresh water dump into the Pacific Ocean because the ‘environmentalists’ refuse to allow more dams to hold the water.
What is so alarming is that climate change or global warming or whatever has become its own religion with non-believers condemned to purgatory until they relent. At the confirmation hearings for cabinet appointments, senators were asking appointees if they believed in climate change like an inquisitor in the middle ages asking if they were Catholic.
So, which is it? Is it Global Warming because we drive cars or Climate Change because we use too much air conditioning or maybe our cows fart too much?
The left should at least be honest and come up with a poster that reads:
You Control Climate Change
Turn Down, Switch off, Recycle, Walk, Send Money

Iranian husband threw acid in face of wife and daughter in 2011. Mother died in 2015 from her injuries. Acid attacks are becoming popular in Iran with victims usually being women and driven by family feuds. Media reporting of such assaults is minimal. Victims are usually blamed with attackers treated sympathetically. dailybeast, The Guardian, Gatestone Institute
Chicago Shooting Count
The Chicago Shooting Count For 2017 as of January 20, 2017 (8pm MST), is:
34 Shot & Killed
34 Homicides (a murder every 13:49 hours)
144 Shot & Wounded (a shooting every 2:36 hours)

resulting in no arrests.
Editor’s note: Depending on the state, there are different types of homicide (the killing of a person by another person)…criminal (first degree or manslaughter), justifiable or excusable. heyjackass.com
You can blame much on a poor education system, gangs, a lack of jobs and an unresponsive government; but, a portion of the blame goes to the individuals who would not or could not find it within themselves to build a better life.

Tiny Homes For Homeless Vets
As many as 50,000 veterans in the U.S. have no place to live. Two vets from Kansas City, former Marine, Chris Jamison, and a former Army soldier, Chris Stout, have teamed up to help. The two men have mobilized supporters and donors to start building tiny homes that homeless vets can live in. They felt it was wrong for any vet to be homeless. KCBJ, buildinghomesforheroes.org
The Veterans Community Project plans to place 50 tiny homes, like this one, in a Kansas City village.
