Sometimes I feel America is living vicariously in a snuff film. We are experiencing the Fall of the United States – The Fall of the New Rome. Donald Trump is WRONG for so many reasons. It is unbelievable that the Republican Party didn’t vet their candidate better. How could they not know about all of his misogyny, his harassment, his own 1st wife accusing him of rape and pulling out her hair, his numerous bankruptcies, his ties with the mob, his tax dodging and his numerous lawsuits for not paying contractors?
They had to know. They did know. They believed the simple American people would just go along for the ride. Or they created Trump to cause such a fracture that America never truly recovers.
Donald Trump even sexually objectifies his own daughters. And his entourage laughed it off in interviews as if it is no big deal. So it follows that Trump grooms his girls to be objectified and deemed worthless when they “hit a certain age”. Donald Trump’s numerous documented comments have been going on for decades. His frat boyish immaturity of speaking about and dealing with women is a mentally underdeveloped trait. This man is not fit for the Presidency. He is not morally, intellectually, emotionally, mentally and spiritually qualified for the job. He is an embarrassment to decency. The preponderance of rape culture has to be called out for what it is and the damage that it has done and will do in the future.
Here are more on my thoughts on the most recent lewd leaked video of Billy Bush and Donald Trump speaking about women. It is time for Women to stop allowing this generational accepting of abuse.
Any time a Kardashian stunt goes down, you can bet there some REAL News that is being under reported. Case in point, The Pentagon has been accused of paying a UK PR firm $540 Million Dollars for fake Al Qaeda/ISIS videos and there is some disturbing rumblings about Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks attorney John Jones “suicide by jumping in front of a train in London” story. Consequently, Julian Assange after boasting about a big October Surprise has remained radio silent about the US Presidential campaign. His silence has caused a backlash among WikiLeaks enthusiasts who believe Assange is destroying the ethics of the organization.
The movie WAG THE DOG from 1997 shows the glimmer of the realness of the fake.
Here is my take on the media using of the Kardashian brand to do a slight of hand on real news…
Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Power Couple Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky have much to be happy about. Both are venturing in new territory: Kyle has a new TV show called ‘American Woman’ and Mauricio is opening another real estate office in Mexico.
I talked with Kyle Richards’ husband of 20 years, Mauricio earlier about the latest RHOBH’s news as well as the latest gossip regarding the Angelia Jolie/Brad Pitt divorce saga…
WME – the William Morris Endeavor is a Talent Agency whereas IMG- is a Global Fashion (including Top Models), Event Planning & Sports Management Company. The two merged in 2014. The leaders behind the rocket ship known as WME-IMG are co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell. If your a fan of ‘ENTOURAGE’, the character Ari Gold played by Jeremy Piven is based on Ari Emanuel.
This is what I believe WME-IMG will bring to the UFC Brand:
Connections- WME Is one of the biggest agencies in the world.
They have some of the highest grossing talent (directors, composers, writers, producers. Actors/Actresses) in the history of entertainment
They have major Star Power- with top clients comes cross promotions in Film, TV, Radio, Fashion, Sports, Digital & Print media
Power People Answer Their Phone Calls – Big Deals Get done (especially when you have friends and family in high places Ari Emanuel’s brother Rahm is the mayor of Chicago and before that he was The White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama
They have a partnership with a Silicon Valley private equity firm – so they are on the forefront of new technology integration
Ari & Patrick are very aggressive at taking risks
They know EVERY ONE who is Any One
They are masters of packaging deals from the top to the bottom
Emanuel and Whitesell understand multi-level licensing/marketing/branding and they are always looking for more opportunities to bring in more money
WME-IMG see the growth capacity of Asia (including India)
China will be a huge market for business development in ever expanding and diverse markets. An example: there is the rumor that the reason Playboy stopped nudity in their magazine is because of China’s anti-pornography laws
The above are just a few reasons why WME-IMG will be more adept owners of the UFC.
One thing I am quite certain is that Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell will hire a proper sound engineer for all UFC press conferences/events and their production team will make sure top of the line microphones/speakers/equipment will be mandatory.
I see the UFC under the direction of WME-IMG being run a lot tighter and more professional from the top down. Lastly, I think they will kick the Reebok deal to the curb as soon as the contract is over.
