Ted Cruz Fires Epic Counterpunch After Jim Carrey’s Latest Haunting Cartoon Hits His Desk

Liberal Hollywood actor Jim Carrey was once beloved by audiences across America for his amazing acting ability in roles that ranged from rather serious to absurdly stupid — but incredibly hilarious — in his many popular movies over the years.

Sadly, Carrey succumbed to “Trump Derangement Syndrome” in 2016 and simply hasn’t been the same, trading in his spot in front of a camera for one in front of a canvas as he works out his inner demons through the process of painting what could be described by some as “artwork,” typically of the anti-Trump, anti-Republican variety.

The Daily Caller reported on the latest piece of “art” showcased by Carrey on social media, but it was the response he received from the featured subject of his piece — Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is being challenged in the election by Democrat Texas Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke — that truly garnered the attention.

Carrey tweeted, “Go Beto! Go Democrats! Vote like there’s no tomorrow. Let’s make this Tuesday like the end of every great vampire movie. Pull back the curtains and let the sunshine turn all those bloodsuckers to dust.”

Naturally, Carrey’s painting portrayed Cruz as a vampire that was shrinking away and shrieking in pain as he burst into flames and disintegrated while O’Rourke pulled back a curtain to bathe his opponent in sunlight.

The likening of Cruz to a vampire was possibly inspired by the admittedly funny comparisons of Cruz with the vampiric Grandpa Munster from the 1960s sitcom “The Munsters,” not to mention the leftist belief that Republicans are blood-sucking monsters who hate the living, especially women and children, or something.

For all of the criticisms that Cruz has received — both fairly and unfairly — few could say with a straight face that he doesn’t have a great sense of self-deprecating humor or that he is incapable of suffering and replying to harsh insults exceedingly well.

Cruz linked to Carrey’s tweet mocking him as a vampire, and wrote, “Hollywood liberals all in for Beto. But (self-described socialist) Jim Carrey made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat….”

And then utter hilarity ensued and was enjoyed by all in the comment section of that tweet, as everyone understood the joke about Democrats using the fraudulent votes of dead people to win close elections. Just kidding … Cruz was ruthlessly mocked and excoriated by humorless liberals who failed to see the point or get the joke of his post.

Unfortunately for Carrey and his Cruz-hating fellow liberals, it is highly unlikely that Cruz will burst into flames and disintegrate when the curtains of the voting booths are opened after Election Day and the ultimate outcome of his race against O’Rourke is revealed.

The RealClearPolitics average of polls in the Texas Senate race show that Cruz holds a fairly comfortable 6-point lead over his challenger, with the four most recent polls in October giving Cruz a lead that ranged from as little as 3 points to as much as 10 points.

In all likelihood, given the manner in which pollsters have historically and routinely oversampled Democrats and independents and undersampled Republicans, Cruz could very well hold a more significant lead over O’Rourke than has been announced by the pollsters.

However, every conservative and Republican and right-leaning independent needs to get out and vote for Cruz on Tuesday to help drive a stake through the heart of the monstrous undead Marxist philosophy that continues to drive the Democratic Party increasingly leftward these days, lest they be allowed to suck out the lifeblood of our nation and economy by gaining control of Congress.

Breaking: ABC Officially Cancels ‘Roseanne’ After Controversial Barr Tweet

Within hours of Roseanne Barr sending a tweet with racially charged comments about a former member of the Obama administration, ABC announced it was cancelling “Roseanne” — one of the network’s biggest hits of the past TV season.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC said.

Disney CEO Bob Iger took to Twitter to add, “There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.”

Earlier Tuesday, in a tweet that has since been deleted, Barr suggested former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was the result of the “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes” having a baby.

The comments drew immediate criticism and Barr attempted to apologize.Picture2

Shortly after Barr’s original tweet, Wanda Sykes said she would not be returning to the show as its consulting producer.

Sara Gilbert, who plays Barr’s daughter on the ABC sitcom, also criticized Barr’s comments, saying they are “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.” 

“This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love — one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member,” Gilbert said in a another tweet.

Prior to ABC’s announcement, Barr was blasted on Twitter for her comments, with several demanding ABC cancel her show.

News of the show’s cancellation comes almost two months to the day after the reboot of the popular 1980s and ’90s sitcom show premiered to huge ratings. More than 18 million people watched the March 27 episode of the updated show, exceeding the viewership for its original series finale in 1997 by 10 percentThe show was noteworthy for Barr’s character being a Trump supporter and viewers liked the middle-class lifestyle portrayed on the program.

After the strong debut, the show saw its viewership fall to roughly 10 million viewers for its season finale, which aired last week. Still, those numbers were more than strong enough to convince ABC to bring the show back in September.

Conservative Tim Allen’s Sitcom ‘Last Man Standing’ Cancelled Despite Strong Ratings


Reported

ABC confirmed Wednesday it is cancelling Tim Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standing, despite the show posting strong ratings. Deadline reports the popular program, which stars Allen as political conservative and Christian Mike Baxter, is the second-most watched comedy on ABC and the network’s third-most viewed scripted series overall.

Though airing at 8 p.m. Friday nights, Last Man Standing pulls only slightly fewer viewers than ABC’s No. 1, socially liberal, comedy Modern Family — airing at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays — which ABC did renew. The Live+7 viewership (those who watch the program live or within seven days on DVR) total is 8.1 million for Last Man Standing compared to Modern Family’s 8.7 million.

Despite being in its sixth season, the program only saw a modest 5 percent decline in viewership, in comparison to other shows which are normally down as much as 20 or 30 percent at this point in their television life, according to Deadline.

Variety reports, “Last Man Standing was ahead of the curve in the cultural sense as Allen played a conservative-minded patriarch who runs a sporting goods store and opines about the modern world, including political topics such as Obamacare and environmental policy.”

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live in March, Allen said it is dangerous to be politically conservative in Hollywood, as he recounted attending President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

“I’m not kidding. You gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” Allen said.

“This is like ‘30s Germany,” he added. “I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, ‘You know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.

“I’m a comedian, I like going [off] on both sides,” Allen said.

The actor, who describes himself as a fiscal conservative, endorsed fellow Midwesterner and Ohio Gov. John Kasich during the presidential primaries. Allen did not endorse Trump during the general election, but did speak out last November against Hollywood liberals trying to bully others who supported him.

As reported by Western Journalism, Disney CEO Bob Iger defended his corporation, which is the parent company of ABC, against charges of being liberally biased during the annual shareholder meeting in March.

Iger was questioned whether Disney would continue to cater to “liberal coastal elites or make your company welcoming to all Americans?”

The CEO denied Disney was only focused on producing programming agreeable to liberals.

Iger, who co-hosted a Beverly Hills fundraiser for Hillary Clinton last August, has agreed to be part of the president’s Business Advisory Council.

“I don’t believe my membership in that group in any way endorses or supports any specific policy of the president or his administration,” Iger told shareholders, who opposed his participation.

Fans of Last Man Standing are hoping the show will be picked up by Netflix or some other outlet. The first five seasons of the show are currently offered on Netflix.

Marie Osmond Offers To Perform at Trump Inauguration To Help “Unite” America

Singer Marie Osmond made a surprising offer that could alienate her from the liberal elite in Hollywood, all for the sake of unity. She said she would be willing to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration if asked.

“I think when it comes to our country we need to unite,” Osmond recently said in an interview with Yahoo Finance“I think we should all support our president whether we’re happy or sad. This is America.”

Osmond, 57, has eight children of her own, and she said they all have different political beliefs. She added that she would never want them to feel division over politics.

“We should come together, and I think an Inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should,” the singer concluded.

Osmond and her brother, Donny, performed at President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration in 1981. She’s right that it’s time for the country to come together and let Trump do what the people elected him to do.

While Osmond confirmed that she would be on vacation during the event, we assume that she would have changed those plans had she been invited to perform.  That’s a big risk, considering the amount of venom most of Hollywood has been spewing against Trump since he announced he would run for office. There’s no doubt Democrats and liberal news outlets will trash Osmond for making the offer, but that’s exactly the kind of hate we’ve come to expect from the left.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Yahoo reported that those who are scheduled to perform at the event included the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Radio City Rockets, the Talladega (Alabama) College Marching Tornadoes and “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho, who will sing the national anthem.

BOOM: Clint Eastwood Has PERFECT Response to Hollywood Libs Calling Trump Racist


waving flagAuthored By: Ben Marquis on October 7, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/eastwood-hollywood-trump-racist/

nat-chair-day-logoFamed Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood has long been known to hold a different opinion than most of his peers, leaning more towards a libertarianish conservatism than the typical elitist liberalism. Not much has changed for Eastwood over the years, as the 86-year-old still stands apart from most of the other actors and directors he works with making movies.

Eastwood sat down not too long ago for a wide-ranging interview with Esquire magazine that touched on the topic of empty-suit-empty-chairpolitics a bit, and he held nothing back in delivering a blunt assessment of young Americans and the media, as well as the two presidential nominees, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Asked what he thought about people sort of adopting his classic film persona of being a tough guy that takes no guff from anyone, such as Trump, Eastwood replied, “But he’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now.”

“We’re really in a p**** generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,” he continued. “We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

Pressed for more about Trump, Eastwood explained: “What Trump is onto is he’s just saying what’s on his mind. And sometimes it’s not so good. And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”

He made clear that he was not offering up an endorsement of Trump but nevertheless had a message for those who routinely accuse Trump of being a racist.

“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he stated. “But everybody — the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f***ing get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Eastwood proceeded to reminisce about his famed “empty chair” address at the 2012 Republican National how-was-paris-empty-chairConvention and spoke about how he’d like to see everybody work harder and be more understanding of others’ differences instead of simply calling names or being intolerant.

Asked his opinion of Clinton, he replied, “What about her? I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one. If she’s just gonna follow what we’ve been doing, then I wouldn’t be for her.”

The interviewer pressed Eastwood to make a decision between Clinton and Trump.

Eastwood responded, “That’s a tough one, isn’t it? I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps.”

“There’s been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She’s made a lot of dough out of being a politician,” he added. “I gave up dough to be a politician. I’m sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.”

Though Clint Eastwood’s answers to the interviewer’s questions were far from an endorsement of Trump, it is pretty clear that he was leaning toward the GOP candidate in this election, for many of the same reasons many other Americans are.stupid
