Yahoo! Exclusive: See Samuel L. Jackson in new pro-Obama ad ‘Wake the F*** Up’

By Lizbeth Scordo | Now: Your Daily Dose of Celebrity News – 14 hours ago

You're probably already sick of political ads by now, what with the presidential election less than six weeks away, but a group of Barack Obama supporters are banking on the fact a new unorthodox spot they're releasing — starring Samuel L. Jackson and jarringly titled "Wake the F*** Up" — will get your attention.

(Check out an exclusive preview of the video, only on Yahoo!, above. And, yes, we are aware that this is a partisan video. When a clever pro-Romney video surfaces next, we promise to feature it on Yahoo! as well.)

The three-minute, 30-second ad, sponsored by the Jewish Council for Education and Research, is a play on the reading Jackson did last year of the satirical "children's book" Go the F*** to Sleep, which quickly went viral.

Adam Mansbach, who wrote the book, also penned the script for the video (set to dramatic, kid-action-filmesque music), which follows a young girl as she goes from room to room of her house, attempting to reenergize her jaded family into taking part in the Obama campaign this time around like they did four years ago. Though Jackson wasn't signed on to star in the spot when Mansbach wrote the dialogue, he did revise it for the movie star, a task he calls "great fun." "Knowing that an actor of Sam's caliber is going to be performing your words is a real thrill," notes Mansbach, who's also authored multiple novels.

[Related: Americans expect both sides to lie, Esquire/Yahoo! poll finds]

As the girl in the video tries to engage her computer-gazing older brother, her snoozing-by-the-TV parents, her Facebook-obsessed teen sister, and even her senior-citizen grandparents, who are busy, er, getting romantic, Jackson pops up in every scene with plenty of rhyming zingers. An example: "Sorry my friend, but there's no time to snore/an out-of-touch millionaire has just declared war/on schools, the environment, unions, fair pay/ We're all on our own if Romney has his way/And he's against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck/ So I strongly suggest that you wake the f*** up."

At the end, the video states that the message was not approved or authorized by any candidate (the group behind the ad did not reach out to the Obama camp regarding the video) and encourages viewers not just to vote for Obama, but also to "Canvass. Phone. Donate."

[Related: Romney in Ohio: 'My heart aches' for struggling Americans]

"My hopes are that the video helps … remind people of Obama's accomplishments and the stakes of this election, and galvanize people to get out and get active," Mansbach adds. "Not just to vote, but to volunteer and organize."

As for whether the spot will get any backlash, Mansbach is counting on it. "There's always a backlash. To everything. And a backlash to the backlash."

I agree the rep are bat shit crazy and the dems are saner then they are.

Look at the gridlock and obstruction Obama (a member of one of the two established parties) is getting from just one (albeit insane) party. Think what an outside party would get from two combined parties. Thirds will not be relevant until the exclusionary pols are replaced by inclusive pols ~ even if the third party candidate was Jesus. So a throwaway vote will go to Rs.

Your choice is to do something or do nothing, if you don't affect the outcome you're doing nothing, voting in such a way that allows a Republican to win is doing nothing you talk of the evil of the two party system then promote actions that ensure that it continues, I suggest we kill the GOP and therefore we stop this "it's their fault" shit and hold them responsible. As far as "corrupt" goes sorry to be the one to tell you but folks are folks, that's why we write rules, if we can get rid of the GOP we can write some good ones.

When Iceland got raped and pillaged by WS they didn't bail out the banks, they nationalized them and bailed out the people and threw the Banksters in prison! How? They voted! They vote with a 80-90% turnout! With participation the people, not Big$, CALL THE SHOTS!!! WTFU!

Of course democracy requires participation but lower participation in no way weakens a democracy. A democracy operates on any level of participation. The number of participants doesn't change the choices presented to them. It all comes down to either for or against no matter how many are involved.

Voting had nothing to do with what happened in Iceland. Unlike in the United States, the three indebted private banks of Iceland were much larger than the national economy and therefore the country's central bank which was unable to be the lender of last resort for bailing out the banks. Therefore, there was little choice for the government other than to nationalize.

Government action nationalized the banks in October of 2008.

People were much later presented with referenda pertaining to the debt beginning in March of 2010.

We don't have national referendum in the US. Doing what was done in Iceland was never an option. The only way to have referendum in the US is to pass the amendments of the FreeDA Liberty Bill http://occupywallst.org/forum/free-democracy-amendment/ notably amendment 5. You can't get those amendments passed by voting for the same unaccountable Big$ bought politicians and hoping for change.

Voters say 'no' to repaying Dutch and UK Icesave losses

Iceland's citizens voted "no" in a referendum Saturday on repaying Britain and the Netherlands $5 billion in losses that their governments incurred by repaying account holders after the collapse of the Icesave bank.

By Nicholas RUSHWORTH (video)

News Wires (text)

AFP - Iceland's socialist government was surveying the damage Sunday after a referendum rejected a deal to pay Britain and the Netherlands billions for losses in the collapse of the Icesave bank.

As expected, Icelanders overwhelmingly voted down the deal in Saturday's referendum, with some 93.6 percent of voters lined up on the "no" side after more than 50 percent of the votes had been counted.

Iceland voters reject plan to repay bank debt

Voters in Iceland issued a resounding “no” in a referendum on whether to approve a renegotiated deal to compensate Britain and the Netherlands over the 2008 collapse of Icesave Bank, leaving the issue to be settled in court.

By News Wires (text)

REUTERS - Iceland faces more economic uncertainty and a drawn-out European court case after its voters rejected for a second time a plan to repay $5 billion to Britain and the Netherlands from a bank crash.

The British and Dutch governments voiced disappointment with the result of Saturday's referendum, in which almost 60 percent of voters opposed the repayment deal.

"We must do all we can to prevent political and economic chaos as a result of this outcome," Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir told state television.

Bankers jailed, sued as Iceland seeks culprits:

Riot Police Resign- Iceland Leads the Way, Iceland’s President twice vetoed legislation that would have forced taxpayers to bail out the country’s failed banks. Each time, the>legislation then was put before the voters as a referendum and, to no one’s surprise, was rejected again. The banks folded, and their assets were sold. Now the country is in a state of solid recovery. Is there a lesson here for the rest of the world? The President Of Iceland Tells Us How He Had The Balls To Stand Up To Britain

Iceland’s President Explains Why The World Needs To Rethink Its Addiction To Finance. Here’s the full transcript of our interview with Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, who has been President of Iceland since 1996, and announced last month he would be running for a fifth term. Keep reading to hear his thoughts on Iceland’s recovery, and how a large financial sector can ruin the world.

Iceland forgives mortgage debt of its population. This is what can be in countries that are not controlled by Zionist banksters. The IMF found that such case by case negotiations safeguard property rights and reduce moral hazard, but they take time. As of January of this year, only 35% of the case by case restructuring applications had been processed. To speed things up, Iceland has introduced a debt forgiveness plan which writes down deeply underwater mortgages to 110% of the households’ pledgeable assets.

Throughout 2009 the Icelandic economy continued to be in a precarious situation (at the end of the year the GDP had dropped by 7%) but, despite this, the Parliament proposed to repay the debt to Britain and the Netherlands with a payment of 3,500 million Euros, a sum to be paid every month by Icelandic families for 15 years at 5.5% interest.

The move sparked anger again in the Icelanders, who returned to the streets>demanding that, at least, that decision was put to a referendum. Another big small victory for the street protests: in March 2010 that vote was held and an overwhelming 93% of the population refused to repay the debt, at least with those conditions. This forced the creditors to rethink the deal and improve it, offering 3% interest and payment over 37 years. Not even that was enough. The current president, on seeing that Parliament approved the agreement by a narrow margin, decided last month not to approve it and to call on the Icelandic people to vote in a referendum so that they would have the last word. The bankers are fleeing in fear. Returning to the tense situation in 2010, while the Icelanders were refusing to pay a debt incurred by financial sharks without consultation, the coalition government had launched an investigation to determine legal >responsibilities for the fatal economic crisis and had already arrested several bankers and top executives closely linked to high risk operations. Interpol, meanwhile, had issued an international arrest warrant against Sigurdur Einarsson, former president of one of the banks. This situation led scared bankers and executives to leave the country en masse. In this context of crisis, an assembly was elected to draft a new constitution that would reflect the lessons learned and replace the current one, inspired by the Danish constitution. To do this, instead of calling experts and politicians, Iceland decided to appeal directly to the people, after all they have sovereign power over the law. More than 500 Icelanders presented themselves as candidates to participate in this exercise in direct democracy and write a new constitution. 25 of them, without party affiliations, including lawyers, students, journalists, farmers and trade union representatives were elected. Among other developments, this constitution will call for the protection, like no other, of freedom of information and expression in the so-called Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, in a bill that aims to make the country a safe haven for investigative journalism and freedom of information, where sources, journalists and Internet providers that host news reporting are protected. The people, for once, will decide the future of the country while bankers and politicians witness the transformation of a nation from the sidelines. Source: www.elconfidencial.com

Crisis resolution

Iceland's financial position has steadily improved since the crash. The economic contraction and rise in unemployment appear to have been arrested by late 2010 and with growth under way in mid 2011.[188]

Three main factors have been important in this regard. First is the emergency legislation passed by the Icelandic parliament in October 2008. It served to minimise the impact of the financial crisis on the country. The Financial Supervisory Authority of Iceland used permission granted by the emergency legislation to take over the domestic operations of the three largest banks.[189] The much larger foreign operations of the banks, however, went into receivership.

A second important factor is the success of the IMF Stand-By-Arrangement in the country since November 2008. The SBA includes three pillars. The first pillar is a program of medium term fiscal consolidation, involving painful austerity measures and significant tax hikes. The result has been that central government debts have been stabilised at around 80–90 percent of GDP. A second pillar is the resurrection of a viable but sharply downsized domestic banking system on the ruins of its gargantuan international banking system which the government was unable to bail out. A third pillar is the enactment of capital controls and the work to gradually lift these to restore normal financial linkages with the outside world. An important result of the emergency legislation and the SBA is that the country has not been seriously affected by the European sovereign debt crisis from 2010. Despite a contentious debate with Britain and the Netherlands over the question of a state guarantee on the Icesave deposits of Landsbanki in these countries, credit default swaps on Icelandic sovereign debt have steadily declined from over 1000 points prior to the crash in 2008 to around 200 points in June 2011. The fact that the assets of the failed Landsbanki branches are now estimated to cover most of the depositor claims has had an influence to ease concerns over the situation.

Finally, the third major factor behind the resolution of the financial crisis was the decision by the government of Iceland to apply for membership in the EU in July 2009. While views on the feasibility of EU membership are quite mixed in Iceland, this action has served to enhance the credibility of the country on international financial markets. One sign of the success of the above efforts is the fact that the Icelandic government was successfully able to raise $1 billion with a bond issue on 9 June 2011. This development indicates that international investors have given the government and the new banking system, with two of the three biggest banks now in foreign hands, a clean bill of health.[190][191] The first two major measures were implemented by the government of Geir H. Haarde but also carried out by the government of Johanna Sigurdardottir, which then took the step to apply for EU membership.

By mid-2012 Iceland is regarded as one of Europe's recovery success stories. It has had two years of economic growth. Unemployment is down to 6.3% and Iceland is attracting immigrants to fill jobs.

Perhaps you fell for that line of BS, but anyone who knows what Berkshire does realizes its all talk with decades of shitty actions.

Nice piece about a war he isnt fighting and a sold out congress he isnt part of...

The piece is about wealth disparity. So he doesn't get to have an opinion on the war because he's not a soldier? He can't have an opinion on congress because he isn't a congressman?

You should think before you post. I'm guessing you're drunk so it's OK. Tomorrow is another day.

Which Buffet Rule? Congress recently passed a bill that says these wealthy lib bleeding hearts can noiw send MORE THAN THEY OWE!!! I believe the nickname for the bill had his name on it too. There will soon be a new line on your 1040 to flush more money down the .gov toilet.
