We all know that behavior depends upon its consequences. That’s why if there’s an electric fence that shocks you when you lean against it, you’ll probably avoid it the next time. I saw that we all know it, but unfortunately, there are many who think that if they whine loud enough they can make the fence stop shocking them, or at least get someone to turn off the power to it.
That’s not really how freedom works though. Yes, you’re free to do many dumb things here that you’re not free to do anywhere else. You’re just not free from the consequences of those actions. You want to tick off millions of people at an event attended by some of those people, they might just heckle you, or worse.
The actors who repeatedly acted out the death of our Commander in Chief ran into this problem after many performances of the modern adaptation of Julius Cesar, which starred Donald Trump as the assassinated ruler. While this play was in bad taste, probably bad for the country and in just about every other way inadvisable, just like many bad ideas, it wasn’t illegal. This particular group of actors apparently didn’t properly account for the Trump supporters who would be in attendance and had a few things to say about this stupidity.
Via The UK Guardian:
Corey Stoll, the actor who played the assassin Marcus Brutus in a New York production of Julius Caesar that was repeatedly interrupted by pro-Donald Trump protesters, has written of the fear such actions engendered among a cast left ‘exhausted and nervous’ by the time of the final show, in Central Park on June 18.
The Public Theater production, which featured a central character dressed to look like Trump, was first interrupted by protester Laura Loomer, who shouted that ‘this is political violence against the right’. The incident was filmed by Jack Posobiec, a rightwing conspiracy theorist, who stood up and told the crowd: ‘You are all Nazis like Joseph Goebbels.’
Stoll, who said he was initially worried the decision to depict Caesar as Trump would make the play like a ‘Saturday Night Live skit’, pointed to the surreality of the moment when he wrote: ‘I swear I thought he said ‘gerbils’.’
At a subsequent show, a man rushed the stage shouting, ‘Liberal hate kills’. Police charged Loomer, Javanni Valle of Brooklyn and Long Island man Salvatore Cipolla with trespassing.
Stoll said threats to the production heightened after the Republican congressman Steve Scalise was shot at baseball practice in Virginia – an act that was seemingly blamed on the Julius Caesar controversy by Donald Trump Jr.
‘Of the more than 150 mass shootings so far this year,’ Stoll wrote, ‘this was the first that appeared to be aimed at a politician. Like most Americans, I was saddened and horrified, but when the president’s son and others blamed us for the violence, I became scared.’
The brutality of the assassination in the play and its disastrous consequences showed liberal audience members that violent regime change was “hideous, shameful, and self-defeating”, Stoll wrote. ‘Protesters never shut us down but we had to fight each night to make sure they did not distort the story we were telling’
Nonetheless, the cast came to feel ‘as if we were acting in two plays simultaneously – the one we had rehearsed and the one thrust upon us. The protesters never shut us down, but we had to fight each night to make sure they did not distort the story we were telling. At that moment, watching my castmates hold their performances together, it occurred to me that this is resistance.’
The actor, who has starred in the Netflix series House of Cards and the Marvel film Ant-Man, said initial audience displeasure was expressed with shouts and a man unfurling a Trump 2020 flag. ‘At first I flinched, thinking the worst,’ Stoll wrote of the man with the flag. ‘But he just stood there smiling proudly. Relieved, I smiled back.’
The interruptions escalated when Loomer took to the stage, although Stoll said the actors were met with a ‘thunderous standing ovation’ when they decided to simply continue the play.
‘In our last two performances, the security increased again, and the moment before the assassination became meta-theatrical,’ he wrote. ‘As the conspirators covertly moved in on Caesar, I wondered how many eyes were on us, at the same time, waiting for their own cue?’
By the final show, Stoll said, the cast was ‘exhausted and nervous’ and security again had to deal with a protester, who attempted to invade the stage and shouted ‘I’m sick of your bullshit!.’ Stoll said that after the show he ‘exhaled and sobbed’ backstage.
‘In this new world where art is willfully misinterpreted to score points and to distract, simply doing the work of an artist has become a political act,’ he wrote. ‘A play is not a tweet. It can’t be compressed and embedded and it definitely can’t be delivered apologetically.
‘The very act of saying anything more nuanced than ‘us good, them bad’ is under attack, and I’m proud to stand with artists who do. May we continue to stand behind our work, and, when interrupted, pick it right back up from ‘liberty and freedom’.”
Don’t you just hurt on the inside for these poor actors and actresses who were being persecuted? What possible motivation could the evil conservatives have for not wanting more people to glorify the candidate that they elected to office? Just totally unfair for them to be treated in this way, don’t you think? If you think that then you might not really realize how freedom works, or how this country was founded. It was founded on standing up to those who glorify wrongdoing. Yes, those actors had the right to be in the play, just like we have the right to object to it. Maybe, if they can’t stand the heat they should stay out of the kitchen.
You and I can debate till we’re blue in the face as to whether this play should have gone forward. Was it art or was it over the top aggression? Should the Secret Service get involved as with the Kathy Griffith case? I don’t know, that’s not in my wheelhouse. What I do know is that if it is considered performance art, it will only get as much traction as it gets money, and if people think there will be negative consequences to supporting it, they won’t do so.
Again, we’re all free to be stupid, we’re just not free from the consequences of our stupidity.

BREAKING NEWS: Grammy Winner Has SICK FANTASY To MURDER Trump’s Daughter
The President’s family has always been open to attacks by people who are willing to go below the belt. Especially when it comes to his wife and children. It is truly disgusting. But the person who has been targeted the most is by far his oldest daughter Ivanka Trump who serves with her husband as an advisor to the President in the White House.
One person who seemingly attacked Ivanka Trump was rapper Eminem. He joined the ranks of entertainers such as Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Baier of the View, a morning talk show, in his attacks on the First Daughter. His recently released album that came out Friday shows exactly what his true feelings about Ivanka really are.
The Conservative Tribune reported,
“In a track released on his new album, “Revival,” the now 45-year-old rapper calls Trump “Aryan,” and says it’s “time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached.” He then continues his lewd, hate-filled lyrics by describing a “murder fantasy” of the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump.
“Donald Duck’s on as the Tonka Truck in the yard But dog how the f*** is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it Must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon Me, ’cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde girl That motherf****n’ baton twirler that got dumped in the pond”
Ivanka and President Trump weren’t the only members of the family to get a shout out on the record. Melania was next, as he rapped about making a pass at her.
“Ivanka, stiff arm her
While I’m hittin’ on Melania
And this song’s for all ya.”
Real classy, Eminem.
Of course, the entertainment industry is eating all of this up like candy. While the actual music is getting mixed reviews, The 405 calls the Trump bashing “admirable.”
Here’s the grand hypocrisy of all of this, though. In an interview with the New York Times, Eminem takes a play right out of the liberal handbook and describes himself has “tolerant.”
One of the grand pillars of liberal hypocrisy is when liberals claim to be “tolerant,” claim conservatives need to be more tolerant, but will absolutely rip anyone who disagrees with them. So, Eminem, I have a question for you. Why aren’t you more “tolerant” of President’s Trump agenda? If you really are the “tolerant” guy you claim to be, why are you rapping about murdering people you disagree with?
But even more than this, the double standard in the mainstream media is absolutely obvious through this new album. Eminem talks about putting Ivanka’s body in the trunk of his car, but where is the media outrage? There is none. Could you imagine if a country Western singer wrote a song about tossing Sasha or Malia Obama’s body in the trunk of his car? To be fair, it would probably be a truck, but I digress. The despicable words spouted by this rapper are absolutely sickening. Many liberals will try and make the case that this album is just “art,” and that we just don’t understand true art.”
Families of the President have always been considered to be off limits and now should be no different. Yet Democrats and liberals have attacked Barron and Ivanka to name a few the most. So clearly it is not an attacking presidential families problem it is an attacking liberal presidential families problem. It is ok to attack when the President is Republican but you can’t attack when the President is a Democrat. It’s a total double standard. There should be a universal standard held by all and everyone. Attacks of a kind against the President’s family are never acceptable and will never be tolerated.
The Hill reported,
“A spokesman for Ivanka Trump didn’t immediately return ITK’s request for comment. The song is reminiscent of past tracks from Eminem, including “Kim” and “’97 Bonnie and Clyde,” in which he rapped about murdering his then-wife. On another “Revival” song, Eminem boasts about making a pass at first lady Melania Trump. Eminem expressed frustration in a radio interview last month that Trump hadn’t responded to his freestyle or earlier taunts.
“I feel like he’s not paying attention to me,” Eminem said. “I was kinda waiting for him to say something, and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.” It’s far from the first time an entertainer has skewered the president in a gruesome manner.
Earlier this year, comedian Kathy Griffin created a firestorm after posing for a photo depicting a decapitated Trump. First lady Melania Trump called the snapshot “disturbing,” and questioned Griffin’s mental health. Griffin apologized, but later retracted her apology. Last month, Snoop Dogg shared an album cover that showed him standing over Trump’s dead body.”
The latest album release attacking Ivanka is just another example of how our society has been degraded. Share if you agree that this type of musical interpretation and attack against the First Family is unacceptable.

Urgent ALERT: Top Christmas Gift DEADLY… Get Rid Of It NOW!!!
It’s already too late for some kids…
Each year we have that different toy that every kid wants and is sold out everywhere, but this year that toy might come with serious consequences.
Although these accusations haven’t been proven, a mother has taken to Facebook to warn fellow parents not to buy Hatchimals bath bombs products for their kids this Christmas season after her young daughter was left with what appears to be first-degree chemical burns all over her body.
Jennifer Renee who lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, posted what appears to be very disturbing pictures of her daughter Willow’s painful looking injuries on Facebook last week. The pictures were of her daughter’s distressing chemical burn injuries after using the Hatchimals Bath Bomb toy. She went on to claim her child sat in the bath for what was only 30 to 45 seconds when her skin became inflamed, red, and painful to the touch.
The mother later confirmed on her Facebook page that her daughter Willow had been diagnosed as having suffered a chemical burn and not an allergic reaction as she previously had suspected.
She then proceeded to call the company who produces this product, Spin Master and later revealed that the batch number is being investigated and will “likely” be recalled because of previous complaints.
This Young Girl Got A Serious Chemical Burn From A Bath Bomb via the Daily Mail:
A representative for Spin Master, which owns the Hatchimals brand, has responded with a statement: “Spin Master has been looking into the matter with the manufacturer and licensee to whom we license the Hatchimals brand. Safety is our top priority and we are deeply saddened to learn of the girl’s injuries. At this point, Global Brands Group has not found any indication of a product defect or manufacturing issue. Additionally, the product formulation has been subject to stringent safety testing and meets all industry standards.”
The Global Brands Group, the Hatchimals distributer, also provided a statement after reviewing the case: “Global Brands Group takes the safety of our products very seriously. We manufacture and ship millions of bath bombs and body washes, and have rigorous processes in place around development and testing, as well as all aspects of production. After careful review, we are confident our Hatchimals bath products are, in fact, safe. However, it is recommended that consumers be mindful of any adverse reactions they may have based on personal allergies or sensitivities.
The Spin Master representative who emailed us alleges that Jennifer Renee’s statement that an FDA expert responded to her specific accusations (in the photo posted by her on Facebook) is false, and that the photographed statement is unclear, and possibly taken out of context. We have reached out to the FDA consumer officer and will update this story as we learn more.
Kids aren’t looking for a fancy claw-footed bathtub with bubbles that are perfectly fluffed just so for the ‘gram — they’re just in there to get clean and get out. But many parents avoid potential temper tantrums around bath time by filling the water with washable soap crayons and fizzy balls of soaps that turn into toys. Sadly, it’s not always suds and smiles, as we learned from one mother who just issued a warning against a bath toy that allegedly gave her daughter a serious chemical burn.
In the case of Jennifer Renee and her daughter Willow, it was a Hatchimal that took bath time from fun to frightening. The Wonderball of bath bombs, a Hatchimal (like, hatching animals) looks like a giant egg, and it that dissolves on contact with water, “hatching” to reveal a “mystery surprise” (usually a plastic animal charm or figurine). Although, for Jennifer and Willow, the real surprise in the Hatchimal was burning pain.
Thursday, Jennifer posted her cautionary story on Facebook, claiming that she dropped a Hatchimal soap toy into Willow’s bath, and less than a minute after touching the water, Willow suffered red chemical burns all over her skin.
“PSA! Do NOT buy this for your children!” she wrote next to the split image of the Hatchimal product box and Willow’s burned hand. “Followed directions on package and placed in her bathtub,” Jennifer’s post continued. “Thought it would be fun for her because there was a toy inside. After being in the water 30-45 seconds she stated her skin was hurting, upon looking she has received a chemical burn from a KIDS BATH BOMB. (no she was not holding it and she has used multiple different kinds of bath bombs and never had this reaction) Just a warning people.”
After taking Willow to see a doctor to asses the reaction, Jennifer updated her post, explaining that the doctor ruled the irritation a chemical burn, more than just a simple adverse skin reaction. A chemical burn, as dermatologist Josh Zeichner explains it to us, is “a general term that refers to an allergic irritation reaction in the skin;” the common causes of the skin allergies of this type, include certain fragrances, preservatives, and dyes.
And in the case of the burning Hatchimal, Julie M. Barrows, a consumer safety officer from the Office of Cosmetics and Colors sector of the FDA, allegedly responded to Jennifer’s post, saying Willow’s reaction was likely caused by the D&C Red No. 33 dye. She reportedly explained in her note to Jennifer that the red dye is categorized as suitable for “externally applied cosmetics” (think: lipstick), but it “may not be used for bath products.
I am not saying this woman is a liar. But if there were previous complaints wouldn’t you think this wouldn’t be the first time we would have heard about this? I very much doubt Spin Master, who has a spotless safety record and produces millions of these products would have kept quiet all this time and risk multiple lawsuits instead of immediately recalling the product before more children were affected by whatever is in these toys that are causing the burns.
Please share if you want to get to the bottom of this issue….
SHOCKING NEWS Out Of TEXAS – 60-70 Bodies Found Rotting In Field … This Is HORRIFIC!
America’s criminal justice system is a finely tuned machine with one purpose; justice for all. While good old-fashioned detective work, canvassing, questioning and sometimes a gut instinct will never be replaced during investigations into criminal activity, the fastest evolving part of an investigation is the forensic science.
As citizens of this great nation, we are constantly in search of a way to make sure that no innocent person is punished and no guilty person gets off scot-free. However, the more sadistic and creative the criminals get, the more tedious and meticulous those who try to catch them might be. While this looks like a few trips to a computer on TV shows, the reality is that forensic science is a dirty business and one that most of us don’t completely understand.
In order to determine things like how long a person has been dead, scientists and investigators need to actually observe a body decompose in a controlled environment, and that’s just is happening at a body farm in Texas. Daily Mail reports that the bodies are exposed to the elements and covered with cages to keep scavengers off them, and while it’s for a good cause, it’s truly horrific to see:
“These gruesome images show the inside of a body farm – a graveyard where the dead are left to rot in open cages.
Rows upon row of dead bodies are lined up in the metal pens in the remote Texan field as part of scientific research into how corpses rot.
In fact, despite its grisly appearance, the so-called body farms actually help police solve crimes by helping to determine when victims were killed.”
Scientists at The Forensic Anthropology Centre at Texas State University are able to use the donated dead bodies and compare them to those killed in suspicious circumstances.
The information gathered here can be used in a court of law and researchers have been called to give evidence for the prosecution and defense. The bodies can also be used to help with facial reconstruction.
By using the skulls and images of those who volunteer for the open burial scientists can help police to reconstruct what an actual victim may have looked like.
They often have worked in law enforcement so know how useful the facilities are, decomposition expert Dr. Danny Wescott told CBS Austin.”
Just like a person can choose to be an organ donor, someone can also donate their body to science after they pass on. This is just one of the possibilities for what could be done with someone who makes that donation. It’s far from a pleasant sight to see, however, the work is one of those unpleasant necessities to keep crime down.
Without endeavors like this one, the forensic departments would have no way of training their scientists to determine exact times of death, which markings on a body come from attacks and which come from scavengers, etc. That is important, not only in the sense that it helps bring justice for the families of those killed, but knowing that it’s getting increasingly more difficult to get away with a crime, keeps crime down. Behavior will always depend on its consequences, and without an effective way to punish attackers, more attacks would happen.
Dr. Danny Wescott has spent a number of years leading the research of skeletons at the US university.
He said: ‘It allows us to see how bodies decompose. We work with law enforcement officials and help with the training of local police cadets.
‘We get bodies given to us specifically to use. Living donors offer their bodies as donations. We also take next of kin donation.
‘We have two criteria for the bodies – they must be under 500 pounds when they die. And they must not have any active infectious diseases like hepatitis C. We also accept cremains.
‘It then gets assigned to a research project. The bodies can be left out in the field for six months to a couple of years.
‘The skeleton is then used for further research. In fact, most of the research is done on skeletons.’
To be a part of the body farm most people volunteer before their death – although some are donated by next of kin. Police then observe how different factors influence the way the bodies decompose.
‘Law enforcement provides different scenarios and we look at the effects of clothing and things like diabetes on the body,’ Dr. Wescott said.
‘It allows us to give estimations on death to the police. We can also help with facial reconstruction.
‘Because we know what the person looked like before they died we can compare this with what those who draw the facial reconstruction images have come up with.
‘We also look at the ecology side – and how it impacts specifically on insects. We have scientists here from the UK because there is a demand for it.’
The bodies have to be caged to protect them from vultures, which are rife in Texas.
‘At the moment we have between 65 and 70 bodies. There are more men than women but we also get some couples who donate their bodies,’ Dr.Wescott said.
This might not be the kind of place that you want to go on a family vacation, but it might just be what keeps the streets a little safer wherever you do take your vacation. Like many of the aspects of law enforcement, this isn’t a particularly pleasant task, but one that has to be done if we are going to try to keep our nation safe.
