Bill Maher tells Dems if they want to beat Trump they have to figure out how to crash the economy (because progressives care so much)

Because they care about people, dammit!

Nancy Pelosi is among Dems sorely troubled by an improving economy with the midterm elections just around the corner, but Bill Maher gave her some hope: The economy might crash and help the Democrats:

That’s pretty much a window into the dark soul of the Left. It’s about ideology and political control, and if they can’t win that battle, they’re more than happy to hope a grenade gets dropped down the nation’s economic shorts. Because they care about people dammit!!

Jimmy Kimmel thinks talking points sent to media are threats to democracy (UNLESS….)

Sinclair Broadcasting sent word to all their stations to make sure to air statements acknowledging there’s so-called “fake news” out there, and to make clear they’re not taking part in the pushing of any particular narrative. The result was a whole bunch of local news readers reciting the same script:

Having worked in local TV for over 20 years, such corporate edicts from any broadcast ownership aren’t necessarily a rarity, but this one had a particularly higher profile because it involved on-air statements. In any case, Jimmy Kimmel found it very disturbing:

Dude, just stop!

I guess people on TV being given a script presents a threat to democracy, unless it’s Jimmy Kimmel being told what to say to the entire country on ABC:

In other words, it’s NOT damaging to the nation when Kimmel goes on national TV and parrots a narrative written and sent to him by partisan liberal politicians:

Comedian Jimmy Kimmel consulted with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) office on details surrounding the health-care debate, The Daily Beast reported Friday.

Schumer’s office “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of” the legislation, a source told the outlet.

Kimmel launched a series of attacks this week on the Senate GOP’s latest ObamaCare repeal and replace measure, sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.).

Schumer and the late-night comedian were reportedly in touch over the past several months, and the New York Democrat encouraged Kimmel to speak out against the legislation.

But a station owner sends talking points to its affiliates and suddenly it’s a grave threat to the Republic? Maybe Chuck Schumer told Kimmel to say all that.

Caring conservative puts up street sign to help super-intelligent liberal late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel avoid another accident

A couple weeks ago, Jimmy Kimmel said liberals excel as late night talk hosts because the job requires “intelligence” — and then he got into a car accident after turning left onto a one-way street in spite of a “Right Turn Only” sign clearly visible (the fate of ALL super-geniuses).

A street artist who goes by the name Sabo, out of an abundance of concern for the liberal super-genius talk host’s safety, has posted a sign at that corner to help out Kimmel the next time he’s driving there:

Instant classic! Hopefully Kimmel thanks Sabo for the assist.

Of course: Robert De Niro flies to part of world enriched by oil to slam Trump on climate change

This is like the Hollywood Hypocrisy trifecta. I don’t have much else to add:

Hollywood star Robert De Niro took aim at the Trump administration’s stance on climate change, telling a packed audience in the Middle East that he was visiting from a “backward” country suffering from “temporary insanity.”

He said that in the country he’s describing, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency suggested last week that global warming may be a good thing for humanity.

“I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don’t’ like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity,” he added.

De Niro received applause and laughs when he said the U.S. “will eventually cure itself by voting our dangerous leader” out of office. He spoke Sunday at Dubai’s World Government Summit.

Instead of seeking asylum in Dubai (or nearby Iran, or Saudi Arabia, or Egypt) from the “insanity” of America, De Niro instead will return to the U.S. for some reason. Go figure.

Author Joyce Carol Oates blasts lack of conservation laws at… Jurassic Park

Author Joyce Carol Oates is one of America’s many “know better than you” progressives, and today she took an animal rights stand against something you might not have heard about:

Here’s the animal rights abuse Oates was referencing:

Read all about it in Oates’ next book, “Who Speaks for the Triceratops?”

Hopefully Oates will also shine a light on the horrendous sanitary conditions at this place called Jurassic Park — wherever that is:

Shakedown on 34th Street: Al Sharpton to have a say in how Sony Pictures makes movies

Enjoy working with your new co-producer, co-director and co-screenwriter, Sony Pictures!

Hollywood came to the Rev. Al Thursday as embattled Sony exec Amy Pascal met privately with the black leader for 90 minutes in a bid to fix the fallout from the cyberhacking leak of embarrassing, racially charged emails.

Pascal agreed to let Sharpton have a say in how Sony makes motion pictures, in an effort to combat what he called “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.”

“We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton.

Too many people are turning a willful blind eye to the fact that this is the Hollywood Left we’re talking about — the bunch of elite hypocrites that preaches to everybody else about racial tolerance. I’d be lying if I denied experiencing a bit of schadenfreude over these pious libs now having Al Sharpton telling them how to run their business.

As for the hack that the FBI says was the doing of N. Korea, the White House has promised a “proportional response.” How about sending them Al Sharpton as soon as he’s finished shaking down Sony?

Will the Dems refund this Sony exec’s campaign donations?

The real crime in the Sony “hack” story is the hack itself, but some of the stuff revealed as a result is telling considering it’s coming from Hollywood bigwigs — the same crowd that preaches liberal “values” including racial sensitivity.

Case in point:

Sony Pictures Entertainment executives joked about US President Barack Obama’s race in a series of emails leaked following the recent hack on Sony, according to reports.

Amy Pascal, co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment, reportedly asked top producer Scott Rudin what she should ask Mr Obama at a November 2013 fundraising breakfast.

Mr Rudin wrote: “Would he like to finance some movies.” Ms Pascal replied: “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked Django?” Mr Rudin responded: “12 Years,” and the pair named other films starring black actors, according to a report on BuzzFeed.

The outrage brigade probably won’t be demanding any resignations for an obvious reason:

Pascal is a major Democratic donor; she gave $5,000 to Obama’s re-election campaign and cut a $30,800 check to the Democratic National Committee, according to OpenSecrets.

The Dems will be so pissed off at Pascal’s emails that they’ll refuse to take her money and issue a refund immediately (pause for laughter).

Obama desperately trying to get health care law ‘N Sync

Hey, maybe a guy from ‘N Sync can un-wreck the train!

This is really getting beyond embarrassing. And I can’t help but wonder what the U.S. Marine in the picture is thinking.

Or maybe he’s just there to sing “Bye Bye Bye” to the U.S. economy.

Update: Bass deleted the above tweet because if pointed readers to HealthCare.ORG instead of dot-GOV. Perfect metaphor for the entire law.

Update II:

Second try is a charm:

Hilarious how he lumps Obamacare in as one of the “charities” he works with. Yeah, ALL charities have federally mandated participation or you face a financial penalty.
