Trump tears AFTRA a new one

“Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me.”

Published

After the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists board voted “overwhelmingly” to oust Donald Trump as a member, the former president had a few things to say. 

“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership,” Trump wrote in a letter to SAG President Gabrielle Carteris. “Who cares!”

“While I’m not familiar with your work,” he added, “I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never sleeps; and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – to name just a few!” 

Trump said he has “also greatly helped the cable news television business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others.” 

“Which brings me to your blatant attempt at free media attention to distract from your dismal record as a union,” he continued. “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?’” 

The video referenced was posted last year by actors like Whoopi Goldberg and Morgan Freeman, among others, who blasted the union’s health plan benefit cuts, Fox News reports.

“I no longer wish to be associated with your union,” Trump noted. “As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resigning from SAG-AFTRA.” 

He went out with a bang: “You have done nothing for me.” 

The board voted to expel Trump’s membership from the union following the Capitol riot on January 6. 

“Donald Trump attacked the values that this union holds most sacred – democracy, truth, respect for our fellow Americans of all races and faiths, and the sanctity of the free press,” Carteris said last month. “There’s a straight line from his wanton disregard for the truth to the attacks on journalists perpetrated by his followers.”  

Trump has been a member of SAG since 1989, but made it clear he won’t miss his membership too much. 

“Who cares!”

      President Trump is not the one who created this mess – four years ago when he was cleaning up the swamp -the swamp didn’t like that – they just wanted to remain their old stupid corrupt self! and half the country fell for it and still do! Trump has every right to defend himself yet he gets put down for it. who made these hollyweirdoes so important that they can say anything they want to a man who did a great job running this country – the media, the left, the so called stars are all in bed together! shame on them and you know what paybacks are tough and I do hope Trump does get even! He is the real president

        Perfectly said! I totally agree. My President is greatly missed and it is sickening and frightful to see what is happening with Biden reversing decisions President Trump made and killing jobs. This union is as you say, in bed with the Biden administration. President Trump will stand strong and tall through it all.

    There is a saying “one fool makes many” …. One idiot does something and gets on the news for 15 seconds and every idiot follows suit because they are after the publicity. We see this happen in politics, the media, Hollyweird and in our educational system and what is mind-numbing about most of these actions is that they are stupid, hateful, serve no useful purpose in the larger scheme and some are even unconstitional…. Good on President Trump to rip them a new one…

    Values? What values does AFTRA have? Judging by what they’ve been doing the last few years, hate, immorality, racism, I would say President Trump did the right thing. I would never want to be associated with such a morally and ethically bankrupt organization.

      Yes! They are so proud of the filth their members keep churning out. When’s the last time you REALLY enjoyed a sitcom without being embarrassed for everyone involved, and embarrassed for yourself for watching it?

    Trump always finds a way to come on top. Been getting reports that Trump is looking at creating his own media company, may even partner to buy the failing, crashing and burning CNN. Wouldn’t that be rich.

    This is more, ” hey, look we did something” without really doing anything from Hollywood, as usual.
    They’re loathsome human beings. Donald Trump doesn’t need them.
    And on a side note, you’re remarkable human being, Leo Terrell. I watched and listened to you for a long time.
    God Bless You! ????????❤????

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

on

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

on

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.”
