Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person. What we need more in this world
Comments: I liked it better when droopy, old celebrities quietly faded away.
Poor babies, what this is all about is that now, their status has changed, no more going to parties at the White House. They are just ordinary mouth breathing, lip flapping citizens without power recognition.
No one cares who or what you agree with. You´ve been proven a partisan hack .....you and Meryl don´t speak for the voting public... you have no humility and Meryl used the wrong platform to froth at the mouth....,the blowback alone shows what fools you make of yourselves......
Wow, what NOT a shock that all the Hollyweird bobble heads are bobbing today. Streep took her moment on stage to shove her hypocritical, leftist opinions down our throats. We are used to this from Hollyweird and the media. We didn´t value them before and don´t now.
Babs just doubling down of stupidity. Who cares what BS has to say? I´m just going to cling to my Bible and my guns then watch some football and mixed martial arts cage fighting. It´s much more entertaining than Hollywood.
These ´celebrities´ do not understand that normal folks don´t care what THEY espouse. We have our own lives to live and we don´t need them to tell us how to live it. Obviously they can´t remember this line - " the election is over "- I think it was despicable to turn an awards show into a political diatribe, not that I have ever watched an awards show. They just entertain each other with their arrogance.
Barbra needs a teleprompter to sing her own songs at her concerts. It´s glorified karoake seeing one of her shows.
That line by Meryl about holding power to account? Didn´t seem to bother Hollywood when the power (democrat administration) was using the IRS against people, because it was against Republicans. Didn´t seem to bother the Hollywood crowd when the EPA was poisoning the water in Colorado and New Mexico.
OK. Meryl Streep. The thing to remember is that she’s an actor. She makes her living memorizing and delivering lines written for her by other people. She’s not a writer, and she doesn’t do improv.
So – who wrote her lines for her? Someone from Hillary’s camp? How long did she rehearse them? Did she rehearse in front of a mirror to get the facial expressions just the way she wanted them? Did she practice that little voice quiver, trying it out at different places? Did she practice different placements and durations of the pauses? How about her hand gestures?
As virtue signaling performances go, it wasn’t bad, but it didn’t really rise to the level of excellence, now did it? Because she is who she is, on a scale of 1 to 10 she always gets the gentlelady’s 3 just for showing up. So for this, I’d giver her a 4. I mean, she couldn’t even muster up a tear or two?
I saw La La Land. I’d like to see what Miss Stone could do with this script. Next!
Well of course you do dear, but no one cares.Love your voice but care about your politics, not much. Without the new social media no one would even hear your opinions-or care if they did, anymore then they care about mine. Please record a few more songs while you can still hit the notes.
Can we ask Streisand to show her HS diploma and an original copy of a porn movie she allegedly made while a teenager. I think her nose was used in place of a penis with Streep as the recipient. And why is she living in the US? What happened to her promise to leave if DJ Trump won? I´ll pay for a one way economy class ticket to Canada,New Zealand,Antarctica or Jupiter or was that last one from another genius Cher?
Isn´t it lovely to be lectured on morality by a bunch of Hollywood forks who are only actors? Hollywood, a din of sin if I ever saw one. They have no moral compass. They opened their checkbooks to a loser and now their hineys are chapped the Donald won.
Hey did you guys know that George Looney Clooney´s wife(beard) Amal is pregnant. Just like this news the fact that BS agrees with her idiot friend Streep Throat is something I don´t give a screeching RA about.
A hundred people packed a bookstore in Brooklyn to write postcards to elected officials and, as the invitation urged, “plot next steps.” In St. Louis, bookstore owners began planning a writer-studded event to benefit area refugees. At a bookshop in Massachusetts, a manager privately asked his senior staff members how the store should respond to the Trump presidency. “Go hard,” they told him. (Snip) Some stores, including large chains like Barnes & Noble, with customers from across the spectrum, have steered away from the political realm. Some stores say they have worked to keep the latest book displays balanced —
Omar Abdel-Rahman, the extremist Muslim cleric known as "the blind sheikh" convicted of conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and of planning more attacks as part of a "war of urban terrorism" in the United States, has died in a U.S. prison, his son Ammar told Reuters on Saturday. Ammar said his family had received a phone call from a U.S. representative saying his father had died. He was 78. The Egyptian-born Abdel-Rahman remained a spiritual leader for radical Muslims even after decades of incarceration. With his long, gray beard, sunglasses and red and white clerical cap, the charismatic
Norma McCorvey, who was 22, unwed, mired in addiction and poverty, and desperate for a way out of an unwanted pregnancy when she became Jane Roe, the pseudonymous plaintiff of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that established a constitutional right to an abortion, died Feb. 18 at an assisted-living facility in Katy, Tex. She was 69. Her death was confirmed by Joshua Prager, a journalist currently at work on a book about Roe v. Wade. The cause was a heart ailment. Ms. McCorvey was a complicated protagonist in a legal case that became a touchstone
Tens of thousands of people across the United States are expected to skip work and attend rallies and marches Friday as part of a "general strike" to "get our democracy back." Strike4Democracy, one of the groups organizing the nationwide event, which is called the "#F17 General Strike," said more than 100 public protests are expected. Event pages on Facebook indicate the potential for high participation: Nearly 20,000 people have responded to the page for a New York City march alone. (Snip) The Strike4Democracy website says reasons for the strike include an "authoritarian assault on our fundamental, constitutional rights" and attacks
Spillway repairs at the troubled Oroville Dam will get their first major test this weekend, as meteorologists have revised their forecast and are now predicting a much wetter and warmer storm outlook. Light to moderate rain began falling across Northern California early Thursday and will likely continue for several days, according to the National Weather Service. However, the situation will change substantially Sunday when a larger storm arrives at Oroville and the Feather River basin. "It looks like it´s going to be a pretty good rainmaker," said NWS meteorologist Mike Smith. "You´re looking at 10 inches from Sunday night to Monday night."
PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — Well, this is a first: an athlete pulling out of a press conference due to injury. Tiger Woods, scheduled to meet with the media Tuesday, rescheduled the press conference to Wednesday. Then late Tuesday night, cancelled it all together. “After receiving daily treatment the last several days on his on-going back spasms, Tiger Woods has again been advised by doctors to limit all activities and will not hold a press conference Wednesday,” read a statement from the Genesis Open, the tournament Tiger is hosting this week in Los Angeles. “It will not be rescheduled.” According to
Wegmans Food Markets is the latest retailer to face political pressure for carrying products connected to President Donald Trump. The Gates-based grocer is being called on to remove Trump Winery products from its Virginia stores, where it sells 237 different wines from 58 wineries in that state. The Stop Trump Wine group has asked Virginians to boycott grocers, retailers, restaurants and other organizations doing business with Trump Winery. "Events during Donald Trump´s campaign made it clear that Eric Trump, the president of Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Virginia, shares the views of his father," according to the group´s website. "Let´s demonstrate
US border patrol agents at the Douglas, Arizona, port of entry southwest of Tucson encountered one of Mexican smugglers´ more low-tech methods for moving drugs over the border on Friday. While on patrol east of the border crossing, US agents saw several people moving away from the border fence as they approached. "When agents arrived at the fence they found a catapult system attached to the south side of the border fence," Customs and Border Protection said in a release. "They searched the area and located two bundles of marijuana." CBP agents dismantled the catapult, which was seized by Mexican authorities. It was
Carlos Santana has attempted to "clarify" a comment he made about Beyonce after the Grammy Awards after it prompted a backlash from her fans. The legendary guitarist was quoted in the Australian Associated Press where he said that Adele won the Grammy for Album of the Year over Beyonce because "she [Adele] can sing, sing". "With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce is very beautiful to look at and it´s more like modelling kind of music - music to model a dress - she´s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her," he said. Beyonce fans were obviously outraged
They observe changes in the atmosphere like astronomers study the stars, analyzing everything from air pressure to water vapor and poring over computer models to arrive at a forecast. But for all their scrutiny of weather data, many meteorologists part ways with their colleagues — climate scientists who study longer atmospheric trends — in one crucial respect: whether human activity is causing climate change. Meteorologists are more skeptical than climate scientists, and that division was underscored by the recent departure of Mish Michaels from WGBH News. Michaels, a former meteorologist at WBZ-TV, lost her job as a science reporter at
Even Adele thinks Beyoncé should have won the album of the year Grammy over her. When the British pop star tearfully accepted the ceremony´s top award Sunday night, she shined a spotlight on the woman she said she has loved since she was 11 years old. "The artist of my life is Beyoncé, and this album to me, the ´Lemonade´ album, was just so monumental," Adele said. Certainly for her diehard fan base known as the Beyhive -- and for many music critics -- Beyoncé´s "Lemonade" was a creative masterpiece. But with its racial themes and imagery, some are questioning if
New York - Wall Street stocks sprinted to another day of fresh records Monday, extending last week´s rally on expectations President Donald Trump will soon present his promised tax cut plan. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 0.7 percent to close the day at 20,412.16. The broad-based S&P 500 gained 0.5 percent to end 2,328.25, as did the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index up 0.5 percent to 5,763.96. It was the third straight session that all three major indices ended at all-time highs following Trump´s comments Thursday that he plans to release details about a "phenomenal" tax cut plan in the
John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard. During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump´s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn´t mention Trump´s name once, but he didn´t have to. And even considering the two men´s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party. In his speech, McCain suggested
MUNICH, GERMANY Republican Senator John McCain broke with the reassuring message that U.S. officials visiting Germany have sought to convey on their debut trip to Europe, saying on Friday that the administration of President Donald Trump was in "disarray". McCain, a known Trump critic, told the Munich Security Conference that the resignation of the new president´s security adviser Michael Flynn over his contacts with Russia reflected deep problems in Washington. "I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they´ve got a lot of work to do," said McCain. "The president, I
Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,
On Friday, President Donald Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.On Saturday, Trump’s sons Eric and Don Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the ‘‘Beverly Hills of Dubai.’’ Meanwhile, New York police will keep watch outside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, the chosen home of first lady Melania Trump and son Barron.

NASHVILLE, Tennessee--A total of 18 people were fired from a Tennessee business after joining the nation-wide protest "A Day Without Immigrants." The 18 employees at Bradley Coatings, Incorporated in Nolensville, Tennessee told their supervisors on Wednesday they´d be taking part in the nationwide movement. Then, on Thursday, they were told they no longer had jobs ."We are the team leaders directly under the supervisors and they informed us last night that we could not go back to work and the boss said we were fired," one employee said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tore into President Trump Friday by arguing that his nascent administration has no accomplishments compared to his predecessor. Pelosi noted Friday on the same day in 2009, former President Barack Obama had already signed into law his $800 billion economic stimulus bill. "A jobs bill in the first four weeks passed and signed by the president today eight years ago," she said during the Families USA Health Action Conference in Washington. "Imagine in four weeks what this president has done and here we are. There´s no jobs bill, there´s no infrastructure bill." Pelosi´s comments comes a
Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators
The left and its echo chamber are convinced they are taking out Trump. It´s their "narrative" and they actually believe their own PR. They don’t see how they have driven themselves over the edge of reason and can no longer convince others. The only people they have convinced are themselves -- of their own righteousness. And they actually believe they have succeeded. Again. This echo chamber once held great power. They used to be able to form "narratives," ( activist storylines to decide and interpret news), persuade the powerful, and terrorize the right. They could make most Republicans quake just
Dr. Sebastian Gorka has a PhD, big vocabulary, huge knowledge base and even a British accent -- all the markers of an elitist establishment, if not leftist, thinker. But he seems to be in complete sync with his boss, President Trump. The BBC interviewer, with his fashionable three-day beard, open collar, and heavy ‘tude, probably was not expecting what he got when he led off his live shot interview from the White House lawn with a snarky dig at President Trump’s sanity.
SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote. (Snip) Though the letter is long on utopian ideals, it´s short on actual details. Zuckerberg
The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press. However, a senior administration official told NBC News the report was "false." The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana. Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal -- California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas -- but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness. Of course, this is merely the observation of
