De Niro auditions for the Dixie Chicks

Robert De Niro went to Dubai's World Government Summit to blast the president -- and the United States for electing Trump president.



It was his audition to join the Dixie Chicks. Remember them? They were an all-girl country trio who committed careericide by dumping on President George Walker Bush while giving a concert in London.

Which was a shame because they had such harmony.

But maybe they got sick of singing to groups of patriotic Americans who believe in God, and the Constitution. As a Will Smith impersonator once said, "at a certain point you've made enough money."

In Dubai, De Niro said imagine a country that did this or did that.

"I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don't' like to say we are a 'backward' country so let's just say we're suffering from a case of temporary insanity," De Niro said.

It won't end his career, which at 74 is winding down anyway.

And it won't harm his reputation. It might enhance it, as the Hollywood fad of hating Trump shows no sign of abating.

No, it just shows De Niro for the little girlie jerk he is. Sure, he has played tough guys -- psychopaths -- in the movies.

But in real life, he cannot handle losing a lousy election.

It's been over a year now. De Niro and the rest should be over the election by now. But nope, there he is, acting like a pouting brat who just had his first spanking in his life.

He just called America a s***hole while overseas.

Too bad we cannot keep him from coming home.

You know what would have been nice for a change? It would have been nice if a Hollywood star were man enough to say, OK, I did not vote for him but he is My President and I will defend him overseas.

My country, right or wrong.

Instead, he sniveled like a little Dixie Chick.

From Leslie Eastman's review at Legal Insurrection:
Surber, a recovering journalist with over 30 years of experience, has been cataloging the #FakeNews that has been regularly offered as serious analysis of President Donald Trump’s actions, policies, and opinions. He has brought his enormous collection together in the longest, most serious book he has yet written: Fake News Follies 2017.
"Fake News Follies of 2017" is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at DonSurber@GMail.com for details. I am including a "director's cut." I'll email you back the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the "Fake News Follies of 2017."

Ben Garrison did the cover and I am so happy with it. I told him what the book was about, sent him a copy of the manuscript, and he came up with a perfect cover. I am so pleased.

  1. Climate change is something we can do little or nothing about. Just like market volatility or poverty.

    Part of being a good progressive is finding ways to funnel money of voters into policies and projects, and their own pockets, that present problems like this.

    Sometimes the problem gets taken care of, for various reasons, and they take credit for it. Do you really think the March of Dimes had anything to do with eradication of polio? Sure they helped finance iron lungs, etc. But vaccines and public health measures took place despite anything they did. It may have started out well, but it ended up a racket.

    The climate change racket is just more obvious. It's getting harder for them to come up with new ideas because, let's face it, they have been in charge so long it is hard to come up with ideas that don't hurt their own position of power.

    The reforms have to point away from where the biggest problems our society and culture faces originate, in the source of their power: the government.

    1. Doc,

      Just some elaboration on your thought.

      A bureaucracy can never solve the problem it is tasked to solve because to do so would put the bureaucrats out of a job. Your citation of the March of Dimes is a case in point. After the Salk and Sabin vaccines did the bureaucracy disappear? Of course, they just found a new cause that would justify their existence. They learned their lesson well and chose a goal which permits their bureaucracy to solicit funds in perpetuity. What are the chances that we will ever reach the point where there is never another birth defect?

      sorry about the omission.

    3. Doc, there is plenty we can do about climate change. When the climate is getting colder, stock up on wool socks and sweaters and good old West Virginia COAL. When it gets warmer, break out the beach umbrellas and ice cold Cokes.

  2. I did enjoy his acting. I don’t watch his movies anymore due to his real life persona. Another fool insults half of his potential market.

    Must have been a great conference having such a learned political genius as De Nero speaking on world governance. Was Rosie or Michael Moore the keynote speaker along with Kim Jung il’s sister?

  3. De Niro's movies play well on cable.

    Bet that stops and a lot of money going to him with it. So, it does hurt him.

    1. Don't agree. True, he's basically semi-retired now, but he's already made his money. I'm sure he has competent money advice. As for the Cable residuals, well, this country is split. Personally, I don't see him being affected. Unless he's on a #metoo parade. That's likely.

      The Dixie Chicks acted up when there wasn't such a clear split. Nowadays such conduct is actually required to attain marxist bonafides.

      DeNiro won't pay a price. Not in my opinion.

  4. Can't stand to watch anything with him in it now. What a loser.

  5. even a high school drop out like deniro should be able to understand that higher energy costs, which is what you get with radical AGW policies, hurt average people.

  6. THis just in. De Niro not allowed to have a personal opinion.

    As for ... "But nope, there he is, acting like a pouting brat who just had his first spanking in his life." Gee, you ought to read Trump's tweets. This described behavior is a daily, hourly occurrence for our Depends in Chief.

    2. And we're allowed to express our opinions about his opinion. At least until you fascists use the power of government to stifle speech you don't like. Oh, wait a minute...

  7. The March of Dimes eliminates birth defects by promoting abortion. Follow the money. Sad they have come to that. JC

  8. There is nothing more pathetic than someone who doesn't realize how important he isn't.

  10. Maybe it's something in the air/water of Dubai? Remember, GWB just last week or so slagged PDJT without using his name, bringing up the hoary old chestnut of Americans refusing to pick cotton when it's 105 degrees outside (GWB apparently never heard of mechanized agriculture).
