HOLLYWOOD HYPOCRISY: Celebs attend Google climate summit on private jets, mega yachts

The hypocrisy of the Hollywood elite is simply astounding.

The hypocrisy of the Hollywood elite is simply astounding. 

In the latest episode of Hollywood gone woke, celebrities of all kinds flocked to Sicily, Italy to discuss climate change at the Google Camp summit. 

But, ironically enough, their attendance may come at a steep cost to the cause they claim to be fighting for. 

“Everything is about global warming, that is the major topic this year,” a source told the New York Post

What’s more, the three-day event will cost Google $20 million. 

Many of the guests – including Barack Obama and Leonardo DiCaprio – have expressed concern about global warming, naming it the biggest threat to future generations. 

But, while claiming to care so much about the environment, these celebrities are supposedly showing up in 114 different private jets, Fox News reports

Taking 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo would reportedly release 100,000 kilograms of CO2 into the air. 

“Google Camp is meant to be a place where influential people get together to discuss how to make the world better,” a source told the Post. “There will likely be discussions about online privacy, politics, human rights, and of course, the environment, which makes it highly ironic that this event requires 114 private jets to happen.” 

Attendees, who were personally invited by Google founder Sergey Brin and Larry Page, will cover their own travel costs to Sicily’s Verdura Resort, but Google will pay for the rest of their expenses. 

Other stars in attendance will include Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Harry Styles, Bradley Cooper, Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Diane von Furstenberg and others, Fox News reports

Private jets aren’t the only chosen method of transportation. Some of these stars are choosing to arrive by yacht. 

But not just any yacht, mega yacht. 

Diane von Furstenberg, a designer, arrived on her $200 million yacht, and Dreamworks founder David Geffen arrived on his $400 million yacht. 

Another example of the left-wing elitist motto: do as I say, not as I do. 

Care about global warming, but don’t show up to a global warming summit on a private jet.

    The hypocrisy is beyond reproach! Their lack of knowledge about science is even worse….which we can probably blame on teachers. The star closest to us, that we call the sun, is responsible for ALMOST ALL CLIMATIC EVENTS that we have here (an exception would be the eruption of a volcano that creates ashes which block out the sun). The sun creates conditions that cause clouds and precipitation to occur. The sun gives us our life! Regarding CO2….CO2 is half of the CO2/O2 cycle (carbon dioxide/oxygen cycle). CO2 is NOT a pollutant, rather it is as necessary as a component of our life as O2 is. It is what we exhale and plants breathe in. Plants respond by exhaling the O2 (Oxygen) that we breath in. It is a symbiotic relationship which is necessary for all life. That these lefties don’t understand this basic science should be an embarrassment ! As far as the climate changing….it changes ALL of the time…and it has been changing since BEFORE humans existed.

    What do you expect from people who make a living from make believe and creating fantasies?Btw, It’s snowing here in the Seattle area and I’m grateful that I am snug and cozy in my home that is heated by natural gas…something that our dear leader wants to eliminate.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

Trump Will Not Return To Twitter Despite Elon Musk Acquisition

Published

Donald Trump

On Monday, former President Donald Trump said that he is not going to return to Twitter, which he was permanently banned from last year, after Twitter’s board of directors unanimously approved the sale of the company to Elon Musk.

Trump told Fox News that he is “not going on Twitter” and that he is instead going to be busy on his new social media platform, Truth Social.

“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump told Fox News. “We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can.”

“The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter,” Trump concluded.

As Fox News explained, “Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat following the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot. Twitter deemed a number of his tweets connected to the violent protests as inflammatory and warned of ‘the risk of further incitement of violence.’”

On Monday, Twitter’s board of directors unanimously agreed to be acquired by Elon Musk for $54.20 per share, or approximately $44 billion.

“The two sides worked through the night to hash out a deal that would be valued at $54.20 a share, or $44 billion,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Twitter had been expected to rebuff the offer, which Mr. Musk made April 14 without saying how he would pay for it, and put in place a so-called poison pill to block him from increasing his stake. But after [Musk] disclosed that he has $46.5 billion in financing and the stock market swooned, Twitter changed its posture and opened the door to negotiations.”

In a press release, Musk highlighted the importance of free speech and Twitter’s role as a “digital town square.”

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
