Eisner: Strike Is Over

Done deal?  Michael Eisner says the protracted WGA strike is coming to a close ... just in time for the Academy Awards.

He’s not the head honcho at the Mouse House (aka Walt Disney Co.) anymore, but Michael Eisner claims firsthand and reliable knowledge that the writers’ strike is over. He says a deal was struck between the WGA and studio execs late last week and will take effect within days.


“It’s over,” Eisner said. “They made the deal, they shook hands on the deal. It’s going on Saturday to the writers in general.”

Eisner, speaking live on CNBC’s “Fast Money,” seemed to hesitate initially about whether it was possible that the writers could still reject the agreement, but finally suggested the deal’s acceptance was inevitable.

“A deal has been made, and they’ll be back to work very soon,” Eisner said, adding, “I know a deal’s been made. I know it’s over.”

Yeah the strike is over and all those good old crafty writers can return to churning out more mindless junk with no substance to keep people from giving thoughts to what is really going on here in america and the world. The internet is where I get my information as I cannot trust but very very few ‘news’ shows to report anything substantially.
And though I own a tv, it is not set up for traditional tv, meaning I only have one for viewing movies and documentaries that I want to watch and when I want to watch them. There is no antenna, cable or dish for msm trash.
I have found that current events are explained best in books and dvds that are up to several years old and good examples are anything by Charles Lewis’ Center for Public Integrity where the dwindling down of true investigative reporting still has a home. Other people’s books that are in the know and give some very revealing information are from Chalmers Johnson, Rick Thomas, Lou Dobbs and Amy Goodman to name a few.

Richard C. August has problems that he refuses to take responsibility for and is wasting his time on bible talk and ideas of murderous hate when he should be seeking help for himself.

I have hated Eisner for years, but you and your homophobia make him look like Jesus Christ by comparison.

Michael Eisner is the Meshullam Riklis of the Walt Disney Company.  The only difference between the two ersatz Jewish-claiming robber barons is that once The Walt Disney Company’s stockholders finally got hold of what Eisner was doing, they kicked Eisner out of one job while he resigned from the other.  Thanks to Roy Disney et al. at “Save Disney,” Disney was spared further damage caused by its subsidiaries Miramax Films, Hollywood Pictures, Caravan Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Buena Vista Television, Buena Vista Pictures, and Capital Cities Communications/ABC, not to mention Hyperion Books and even Chilton Auto Guides!!

While Eisner was Chairman and CEO of Walt Disney Co., he was a member of “Hollywood Supports,” a pro-gay-activism coalition of Hollyweirdites whose sole purpose is to promote the gay deathstyle.  He was also involved with GLAAD, the Gay-Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

If Eisner is a Jew (as he claims to be by descendance), and if the God of the Jews is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, then Leviticus chapter 18 from the Holy Bible dictates Mr. Eisner’s fate, as well as the fate of those he supported:

Lev 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
(English Standard Version).

God commanded Moses and the Israelites to STONE TO DEATH, to KILL, Israelites who committed abominations!  Yet, Jews like Eisner command people to practically WORSHIP homosexuals and bisexuals and promote their DEATHSTYLES as legitimate, alternative modes of living.  They do so in the name of MONEY.  They do so because it is totally provocative.  They do so because it riles Christians, and when it riles Christians, it causes people to pay good money to see what all the hubbub is about.

Since he promoted the homosexual deathstyle, and since he promoted every other sexual deviancy in films his company produced, and since his former stockholders—his BOSSES—at WDC fired his sorry tush as a result, Michael Eisner is no longer worthy of consideration.  He should not only be tucked away in the annals of forgetfulness, he should be locked in a padded cell in a remote location where doctors can administer the anti-insanity drugs he so desperately needs.

Walt Disney is spinning in his grave.

Eisner took the magic out of the Kingdom and out of reach for the average family.
