It is a new year, a new decade, and a new you. Or something like that. It is officially 2020, and us optimists had the hope of new beginnings and putting away the negativity of 2019. But now that the drunkenness has worn off and reality set back in, it became clear that we are in for much of the same whining and outrage from the left, because after all, Donald Trump remains president of the United States.

On a positive note, the world has one less terrorist (again, an optimist here). Iranian commander and “King of Terror” Qasem Soleimani is dead after President Trump ordered a drone strike on Soleimani at the Baghdad International Airport on Friday, Jan. 3. Reports showed that Soleimani was planning to attack Americans throughout the Middle East.

Immediately the mainstream media and those who have Trump Derangement Syndrome (but I repeat myself) spun the story to garner sympathy toward Soleimani.

Director Michael Moore tweeted an apology and posted on Instagram in Farsi on behalf of America, begging the Ayatollah and president of Iran to not respond violently. Google translate indicates that Moore wrote, “We will take care of this in our Senate or in the ballot box, non-violently. You don't need to kill anyone to fulfill your vengeance. Please let me do it peacefully. Violence only increases violence.”

Actress Rose McGowan also felt compelled to speak on behalf of America, penning a dear diary tweet which stated that “52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime.”

Meanwhile, President Trump provided context to the strike during a Wednesday press conference.

“For far too long — all the way back to 1979, to be exact — nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond,” Trump said. “Those days are over.  Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world.  We will never let that happen.”

That did not phase the celebrities, and they continued their attacks. Much of middle America and the stock market agreed with Trump’s actions. The stocks jumped and oil prices dropped after the president’s speech on Wednesday. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite hit all-time highs, rising .5 percent and .7 percent, respectively, while oil prices dropped more than four percent.

It was evident that most of Hollywood was in dismay, which makes perfect sense since they also were attacked from someone on the inside on Sunday, January 5. British comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes for the final time, and he did not hold back during his opening monologue, to the delight of most of America.

"You say you’re woke but the companies you work for. Apple, Amazon, Disney,” Gervais lectured the millionaires. “If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent. So, if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god and then f--k off."

On behalf of Hollywood, actor Tom Hanks provided a look of disgust, and LA Times television critic Lorraine Ali followed up with a column entitled, “Politics reigned at the Golden Globes. Too bad Ricky Gervais didn’t notice.”

“The mood was already sober thanks to an impeachment, the threat of war with Iran and devastating bush fires in Australia,” Ali wrote. “The last thing anyone needed was for the smirking master of ceremonies to reprimand them for having hope, or taunt the room for trying to use their influence to change things for the better.”

This is how in a matter of a few days, most of America united around President Trump and Ricky Gervais. It is less than two weeks into the new year and already the unbelievable is happening. What will come of the next 50 weeks?
