Hotel Confidential: Fake, Fake, Fake, News!


Image result for fake news gif

Civility is getting difficult to find in these Trump times.

 For some, Fox News is the only place where one can find the truth, and for them ANY OTHER  news channels is NOT acceptable.   Arguments and sometime fights are taking place in hospitals lounges, restaurants and hotels over the news channel.

The disagreements aren’t not between, teenagers, Gen Y or even those carefree Millennials.  They are between those snow capped Baby Boomers, who fight over remotes, push plates on the floor, and at times complain because they are forced to watch subversive television or hateful television.

Last week, a woman having early morning breakfast with her four friends between 70-87 (it was her birthday)  complained about CNN being on.  “Its not real news”  she said and wanted the channel changed to Fox News.

The breakfast person refused, as there were others watching the newscast.  The women angrily returned to the table with her friends.   Suddenly, the women and her friends began chanting “Fake News, Fake News, Fake News , this went on for a couple of minutes.

On the television screen was the Thousand Oaks, shooting.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta S11 ep2 “South Peach”


 

Were into to second episode, and if it continues this way, its gonna be a smooth season.

Were still in Miami waiting for the other ladies to arrive from Atlanta to surprise Nene.

So far this season Porsha, who couldn’t buy a non-scandalous camera time last year is the face of RHOA so far this season.

Were in Miami, where Porsha is with her man Dennis.  Porsha is more than a little upset because Dennis doesn’t want to share his toothbrush.

Vanderpump Rules What GIF by Slice

 Porsha, who is too old told to act this Giddy over her man.  And she’s so pissed, over the tooth brush she picks a silly fight with Dennis  “I use it every day at home!” She doesn’t understand why she can’t use it now! Where was he and who was he with? Some real silly shit that repels a man.

The other ladies arrived and its time for annual the Housewives run for the room.   However, Porsha put kibosh by pre assigning rooms, every body is ok except the bitch without a Peach!  Marlo!

 

In what could have been a major scream fest between Marlo and Porsha worked out.

With Marlo’s clothes all over the Penthouse.  Porsha borrowed Marlo’s Versace and a few items.  The two laughed and after a night of laughter and had bonding.  Porsha said she never really disliked Marlo and Marlo said her bluntness can get her in trouble.

The ladies surprise is just what she needed.   Nene was the MC of the comedy set and Nene’s joke about Kandi licking coohie…it didst go over well.  Kandi smiled, but its too close too soon.

Nene opens a new Miami Swaggalicious boutique in a hotel two blocks away.   Marlo overacted and two blocks was an imposition and didn’t understand the Uber concept.  They made it screaming corns intact.

Meanwhile, Kandi DOES know Porsha’s boo Dennis.  She knows a LOT.  For now its underwraps.  For Now……………….

What do you think about the season so far?

For the First time in nearly two years America Exhaled

(Click the link below for Story)

https://sacratomatovillepost.com/2018/11/07/exhale/

__________________________________________________________

You can watch the entire Shit Show on You Tube 

You may have to watch this  Four minute video twice  

Today, someone in the Trump Administration said CNN’s Jim Acosta attacked the aid.  So far the fake news media (with one exception) says Trump’s version of the video was altered (so SIT down!)

When Prezy Poo doesn’t like the direction of the media.  He creates new news. Yesterday, he was successful in changing the narrative.   Instead of talking about the historical mid term elections where were more women ,Native Americans and Muslims and gays were elected to office.  We talked about the dismissal of Jeff Sessions.   Well Done!

Prezy, likes to be in control.  His insecurity guarantee there are more Krazy days ahead.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: S11 EP1 “Its a Ring Thing”


Nearly every housewives franchise has a love story.  In Atlanta, it is Nene and Gregg Leaks.  We’ve been through there divorce and we’ve seen them return in a wedding for the gods.

I have a love and hate affair with Nene, she has the fastest tongue in Atlanta and is funny as Hell.  Then there are moments where she is cu-cu for Coco-puffs and moments of great insight and caring.

The scene opens with Nene bringing a giant bowl of pills for Gregg.  Last year, Gregg had issues with his heart and the doctors were successful.  When he returned to the hospital with stomach pains, he was diagnosed with stage-3 colon cancer.   In the scene we see him with family and friends.  “When they cut my colon out, my heart got bigger,” Gregg says.       Typical old corny Gregg.  Nene of course rolls her eyes at him, but we hear her say  “I put on a brave face, but I have my moments.  If my car could talk, my car would probably be like, This bitch cries too much.” She’s back, baby!

Season 11 Episode1

Porsha, Porsha, Porsha

Porsha is thick and wider bodied, in a good way.  You could show a double feature on dat ass.  She’s got a new man, and she tells us  “The power of the tongue is real,”  Her man is Dennis McKinley who owns and operates a Hukkah lounge  and a hot dog restaurant.  They’ve been seeing each other for five months and talking engagement slash marriage. Yes, five months!!!     

We see them shopping for diamonds rings from 6 karats to 10 karats (and $145,000 to $552,000). While I smell some on camera fronting from the Hot Dog king.   Miss Porsha isn’t worried about the price tag BECAUSE  Dennis is “the boss of Atlanta.”   Porsha is as giddy as a second time bride could be.  She and  Nene  has mended their friendship.   Nene is working in Miami  and Porsha, wants the other housewives to join her has a surprise.

Cynthia Bailey

Has a new man, who works for Fox Sports in L.A.  Cynthia lets us know the new man has swam in the cool and refreshing waters of Lake Bailey several times.

Nene’s ‘SWAG

Boutique seems to be a little K-Mart-ish filled with too much clothes and not enough customers.  Porsha tries on an outfit so loud it could be seen by passengers on  a Southwest Jet at 35,000 feet.  Her twerking assets makes Nene laugh.   Lets hope she paid retail.

Eva

Eva is engaged and a wedding is soon.  We see several professional shots of her children and boyfriend.  She’s beautiful, but is there something there, there ?

 

Kandi

We see Kandi with members of Xscape receiving a Golden Note Award.  The award was by the America Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.   They brought the baby (Ace) with them, who was cranky because it was past his bedtime.    Papa Todd, gave Ace to Don Juan to care for while he was at the bar.

At  dinner, with the entire Burruss/Tucker clan.  Kandi tossed around the idea of  expanding the family. (she has unused eggs in the freezer)    There is something in the Burruss blood because ,Kandi’ daughter Riley told her in a mono no-nonsense tone.   No!  you don’t need no more children cause you barely have time for the children you have!!     Shy Riley, has a bit of her Grandmother “Mama Joyce” and her aunts Bertha and Nora.  Kandi can be a bit dull at times, I hope we get to see the Old lady gang this season.

Eva Marcille and Shamari DeVoe who was the lead singer of Blaque and wife of Ronnie (New Edition and Bell Biv-Devoe) are the newest peach holders in Atlanta.

Next week,we will get our first real taste of drama….

What are your thoughts

Facts Fiction and Don Lemon


CNN anchor Don Lemon on a Wednesday evening segment of CNN Live.

Perhaps there would be less outrage if the story was told by Wolf Blitzer or Jake Tapper.

There are many white men who are OUTRAGED!!!   Here you have a black man stirring the racist pot.    IF a white man said something about a Black man, they’d lose their jobs.    Megan Kelly lost her job over “Blackface’ so here we have a black man calling white men terrorist, he should lose his job is only fair!

There are white men in this rapidly changing world who believe that they are under attack.  It had gone too far and it far more difficult to be a white man in America and this morning advertisers and CNN will  demand that Don Lemon lose his job.

THE OUTRAGE

In the course of a week, 14 bombs were mailed to prominent Democrats.  On Wednesday, a white man attempted to enter a black church in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. Fifteen minutes later, he drove to near by Kroger Supermarket and killed two black people.  As the gunman passed a white shopper in the parking lot he said, I won’t shoot you. Whites don’t shoot whites.”   Saturday, a white man entered a synagogue and killed 11 worshipers and wounded six others including four Police Officers.

Cnn’s Don Lemon said Trump would have people believe immigrants are to be feared, but statistics reveal the biggest threats are home-grown.   He went on to say, we have to stop demonizing people and realize that the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. So ,have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white-guy ban. So what do we do about that?”

“the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”

This is what some people heard!   Other’s heard he called for a “white guy ban”               Fox news said Lemon was ranting!   Others called him a racist!

You decide, Listen. 

There are many in this country who supported the Presidents ban on Muslims and individuals from the middle east based on a unsupported belief that, Muslims hate Americans and want to destroy America.    The facts are white men are the principle source of terrorism in the United States and no one is proposing a ban on “white men” this is what I believe Mr Lemon meant.

When its not Fake News

Since 9/11 attacks in 2001, far-right violent extremists have killed 106 people in 62 attacks in the United States, while radical Islamist violent extremists have killed 119 people in 23 attacks.

https://www.gao.gov/assets/690/683984.pdf

From  2008 to 2016, there were almost twice as many terrorist incidents carried out on U.S. soil by right-wing extremists — many of whom are white — than by Islamist extremists.  It showed there were 115 incidents involving right-wing extremists and that those that ended in death were more deadly than incidents carried out by other groups.

https://www.revealnews.org/article/home-is-where-the-hate-is/

An analysis of the Global Terrorism Database by researchers at the University of Maryland published in 2017 shows a “sharp increase”in the share of attacks by right-wing extremists, from 6% in the 2000s to 35% in the 2010s. The share of attacks by religious extremists also increased, from 9% to 53% between the two decades.

https://qz.com/1435885/data-shows-more-us-terror-attacks-by-right-wing-and-religious-extremists/

White supremacists in the United States killed more than twice as many people in 2017 as they did the year before, and were responsible for far more murders than domestic Islamic extremists, helping make 2017 the fifth deadliest year on record for extremist violence in America, a new report states.

Politics of Fear

For decades,some members of the GOP have demonized immigrants from Mexico. They were accused of  straining our resources and crossing the border to have babies and to get on welfare.

Presidential Candidate Donald Trump took it further, he said the people coming from Mexico were bringing drugs, bringing crime and-they’re rapist.   There isn’t any subjective data that supports any of these claims.

A point of reference for some against Mexican immigration is the murder of Arizona Rancher Rob Krentz in 2010.   Krentz’s property is near the Mexican border. The Krentz family was accustomed to undocumented migrants crossing their 35,000 acres.  Because of this, many assumed he was killed by one of those undocumented migrants. His widow was convinced his was killed by an illegal immigrant. After an extensive search, no one has been linked to his murder.  Today, many are convinced he was killed by a Mexican national.

Less than a year after the Death of Mr Krentz.  Arizona passed a law requiring anyone suspected of being in US illegally to produce papers to the police.

 

Race Baiting 2018 (Donald Trump’s Evil Caravan)

Before I talk about our president current attempt to inject white fear in the midterms, I want to look back a few years.

But first thing’s first! What is “Race Bating?:    The unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people

A look Back to 1986

In 1986, a convicted felon named Willie Horton — who was serving a life sentence for murder — was released from a Massachusetts prison on a weekend furlough program, during which time he escaped and raped a woman. Then-governor Michael Dukakis had supported the prison furlough program, and when he ran for President in 1988, his opponent, George H. W. Bush, used that to his advantage. The “Revolving Door” ad never mentions Horton by name, but the connection was clear and the ad received considerable news coverage.

Bush Played on the fears of whites who were terrified of blacks.

2018, President Trump,  has told his base a Caravan is coming, filled with thugs, bad people, including people from the middle east.   He has a few days to convince his base these horrific people filled with diseases  (so says Fox News) will be here at any moment.  In a world where facts don’t matter.  These terrible people are walking and they only have 800 miles to reach our borders.  Tuesday, if you believe the president. Bringing lawless people who will kill the men and rape the women. (a small exaggeration)

The footage is several years old and his story about Democrats allowing illegals in is patently false.  Donald Trump is doubling down on his attack on brown skinned people using fear to get them to the ballot box.

Luis Bracamontes was first deported to his native Mexico in 1997, during the Clinton administration, after he was busted selling drugs. But, according to U.S. Immigration officials, Bracamontes managed return to the United States by 2001, when he was deported a second time for being in the country illegally. That was during the first year of the Bush administration.

Bracamontes was back in America again by 2002. He married a U.S. citizen and remained in the country even as the Bush administration deported people at a record rate, topped only by the Obama administration.

When Bracamontes shot and killed the two Sacramento county deputies in 2014, he had been deported once under a Democratic administration and once under a Republican administration. He had been back in the United States for at least six years during the Bush administration and five years under the Obama administration.  He is currently on death row in San Quentin.

It’s 2018

Perhaps, some white men would have been more comfortable with CNN’s Jake Tapper or  Wolf Blitzer talking about this subject.   One would think, in 2018 we are beyond this. Apparently not.

By the reaction,s only black people should talk about black on black crime in cities like Chicago or Detroit.  Or Hispanics in El Paso or Albuquerque.     Don Lemon ins’t racist, he didn’t attack white men, he talked about the news and the double standard.

I can’t remember a time when a white reporter was dismissed after reading statics about black people or any other persons of color.     I can remember when a reporter or personality was dismissed after saying  spic, called black women nappy headed hoes, fag and other disparaging words or terms on air.   Blackface, hasn’t been acceptable since the 1930’s neither are insulting ethnic impersonations.

 It’s 2018, come on America, come on

Love in Pennsylvania?

President Trump loves the road.  If he could just run his administration out of a Luxury Coach, life would be swell.  He could cuss his staff out over the phone, no sour faces.  He could tour states like Montana and Kentucky where they love him   No rules, no you need to say…….  No you have too’s……. No boring teleprompters.  Just entertaining his base.  Being, High school inappropriate, irrelevant.  Working the crowd, ” Lock her up”

At a rally on Saturday, in an airport hanger in Murphysboro, Illionis a small town  (population 8000) over 300 miles from Chicago.  He was a bit subdued.   A few hours to the east, a City and a nation was grieving

The president had told reporters to expect a more muted rally performance.

For the first time, Trump didn’t break out his usual,  “Lock her Up” (a crowd favorite )  His performance WAS muted.   He went after Elizabeth Warren, but it was a mild attack, in which he conceded he couldn’t use his trademark moniker for her since she took an ancestry test. “No, I can’t use ‘Pocahontas’ anymore,”

This was difficult for him.  He knows his audience, this is were he gets the love.  They love the attacks, the insults.  But this night, the handlers said, we need you to be respectful, so bring it down and we mean it!!!

 Remember this date, October 27, 2018

After 10 minutes he told the excited crowd.  “If you don’t mind, I’m going to tone it down just a little bit,” “Is that OK?”   The crowd responded NO!!!

 “I had a feeling you might say that.”, said the President with a small smile.

“Paris is Burning”

The guys who aren’t any fun has told The President he has to go to Paris, or Pittsburgh.  The midterms are a week away, his poll numbers are crashing and could pull the party down.    Unlike, Montana, Kentucky, and Murphysboro there will be fewer people in red hats.   For nearly two years, Trump has avoided blue areas like Pittsburgh, in fact he has avoided most of America.

More than 44,000 people have signed an open letter from progressive Jewish leaders saying President Trump is not welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism.

He isn’t going to denounce white nationalism, after declaring himself a nationalist.  Throughout the day, moments before he addresses the Tragedy in Pittsburgh, his team is looking for a response that they hope will get them through next Tuesday.

There is a mobilization via Social Media.  Pittsburgh is few hours drive from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington DC.  Is there Love in Pennsylvania for the President?

Roseanne claps back during ‘Conners’ premiere ‘I AIN’T DEAD BITCHES’ but internet gets the last laugh

Roseanne Barr didn’t take her death well.

As the Roseanne reboot “The Conners ”  made its premiere Tuesday night and confirmed that the disgraced star’s character was good and dead by way of an opioid overdose, Barr shot back on Twitter, “I AIN’T DEAD BITCHES.”

The disgraced comedienne then ranted per usual about being fired from her own show and blasted ABC in a long, drawn out statement with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

 

Here is the full statement posted on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s Facebook page:

“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of The Conners, all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character. That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.

“This was a choice the network did not have to make. Roseanne was the only show on television  that directly addressed the deep divisions threatening the very fabric of our society. Specifically, the show promoted the message that love and respect for one another’s personhood should transcend differences in background and ideological discord. The show brought together characters of different political persuasions and ethnic backgrounds in one, unified family, a rarity in modern American entertainment. Above all else, the show celebrated a strong, matriarchal woman in a leading role, something we need more of in our country.

“Through humor and a universally relatable main character, the show represented a weekly teaching moment for our nation. Yet it is often following an inexcusable — but not unforgivable — mistake that we can discover the most important lesson of all: Forgiveness. After repeated and heartfelt apologies, the network was unwilling to look past a regrettable mistake, thereby denying the twin American values of both repentance and forgiveness. In a hyper-partisan climate, people will sometimes make the mistake of speaking with words that do not truly reflect who they are. However, it is the power of forgiveness that defines our humanity.

“Our society needs to heal on many levels. What better way for healing than a shared moment, once a week, where we could have all enjoyed a compelling storyline featuring a witty character – a woman – who America connected with, not in spite of her flaws, but because of them. The cancellation of Roseanne is an opportunity squandered due in equal parts to fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive.”

But the internet got the last laugh by responding to Roseanne’s unhinged tweet:
