A number of celebrities attending the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards wore ribbons to express support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has fought vigorously against President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda. Since Trump’s inauguration in January, the ACLU has filed a number of legal challenges to Trump’s policies, including against his policies on immigration and the ban on transgender members of the military. Over the years, the organization has also become known for its staunch protection of illegal aliens, filing multiple lawsuits against local authorities for upholding federal law. The organization has also become known for its environmental
I think the illegals should be moving in with the "stars". Let them support them instead of the taxpayers if they want to be so welcoming. Oh. It´s called "spending other people´s money. " Must be Democrats. Now I see.
I wrote names of everyone who wore a blue ribbon last night. My wife, is not so political so she watches those Emmy fruit cakes.
However, she has no problem agreeing with me, when we don´t go to stores, theaters, movie houses, TV Series that have these idiots staring in those shows.
I had to laugh this weekend when Jennifer Lawrence had an opening box office take for Mother of $8m. This down from her last box opening of $12m, and the opening before last at $16m.
This fall from the Mocking Jay fame is a result of her sordid comments about her fans, Jews,Christians, and Trump Supporters. She is the classic example of Money Talks, BS Walks. Hope she put a little of her money in good investments, she may never play a role in Hollywood again. Stupid little twit with no talent who bad mouthed her paying fans. She should talk to Johnny Deep about what happens to idiots who are ugly bad mouths to their fans.
Oh, that was the Emmys that was on. I didn´t realize it. Lol, I thought it was a conference on plastic surgery. I thought plastic surgeons were getting awards for the best face lift, best chest award and best nose job. Could have fooled me. Nothing but a bunch of freakin frauds. Got it.
Bless East Tennessee´s Dolly Parton, who looked really uncomfortable next to Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, and damn all the rest. Every one of them. Especially Colbert, who has never been even slightly funny. (He needs a straight right to the nose. Or, if he prefers, a left.) Do these entertainers realize that their careers will be kaput when enough former fans refuse to watch anything they do from now on? That´s happening.
Real per capita federal spending has increased more than sevenfold since fiscal 1941, which concluded on June 30 of that year — or about five months before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. In fiscal 1941, real per capita federal spending was approximately $1,718. In fiscal 2017, which concluded at the end of September, it was about $12,239. Back in 1941, at the beginning of Franklin Delano Roosevelt´s unprecedented third presidential term, the federal government spent $13,653,000,000, according to the White House Office of Management and Budget. Although that was a massive increase from the $4,598,000,000 the federal government had spent
The Republican National Committee broke a fundraising record and raised more than $100 million during the first nine months of 2017, fueled by small-dollar donors at the center of a grassroots movement. In a statement released by RNC Chairman Ronna McDaniel, the "record-breaking fundraising has been fueled by grassroots enthusiasm for President Trump and the Republican Party," McClatchy reported. The accomplishment marked the first time the RNC raised that amount, that fast, in a non-presidential election year. September´s $10.4 million give the RNC $44.1 million in the bank with a total of $104.4 million raised this year. Across the aisle,
The security guard who was shot at the beginning of the Las Vegas gunman´s rampage has finally spoken out about his brush with death. Jesus Campos had several interviews scheduled last week, before he cancelled them all and disappeared. But he resurfaced on Tuesday, when Ellen announced that she would be interviewing him on her show. Ellen released a preview of the interview Wednesday morning, in which Campos describes the moment that gunman Stephen Paddock started shooting at him through the door of his Mandalay Bay hotel room suite.

Russian president Vladimir Putin was left in fits of laughter during an agricultural meeting last week after the Minister of Agriculture suggested exporting pork meat to Indonesia. During the meeting, which was held on Friday last week, Alexander Tkachov compared Russia´s exporting figures to Germany and made the suggestion as a way to increase overseas trade. Footage shows Mr Tkachov saying: ´They (Germany) send half their pork to export. Look at Germany’s numbers: five and a half million tonnes of pork produced a year, of that almost three million is exported to all countries, to China, to Indonesia, to Japan,
New revelations that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved a nuclear deal with Moscow, that involved millions of kickback money to the Clinton Foundation, have been utterly ignored the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows, since the story broke early Tuesday. In fact, the network evening shows have only spent only 3 minutes and 1 second on the Clinton Foundation scandal in more than two years. The latest developments in the Russia/Uranium/Clinton scandal were first reported, on Tuesday, by The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann. On Tuesday’s edition of
On Monday, Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, the last Mexican "rip crew" fugitive entangled in the Obama Administration´s Operation Fast and Furious, was charged with first-degree murder of border patrol agent Brian Terry, who was on killed December 14, 2010. "The arrest of Favela Astorga resulted from the unwavering commitment of the United States and our law enforcement partners in Mexico to bring to justice those responsible for the murder of Agent Brian Terry, who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving his country," read a statement from acting U.S. Attorney Alana Robinson. The weapons used to murder Terry were found to be
I know I won the lottery when I was born in America. Think about that word, “America.” Go anywhere on this third rock from the sun, and tell anyone you are an American, and he will know you are talking about the United States of America. Yet Canadians are Americans, and so are Mexicans, as well as Argentinean gauchos and blood-spilling Cali Cartel members. Pinochet was an American, and so was the murderous Che -- so was “Don’t cry for me,” Evita, and Simon Bolivar. All North and South Americans are Americans. Yet, when anyone says “America,” they are talking
Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) returned to Capitol Hill after an extended absence on Tuesday afternoon. Matt Laslo, a reporter who has covered Congress since 2006 and is a regular contributor to Rolling Stone, tweeted shortly after 4:00 p.m. eastern time that Cochran “arrived at the Capitol walking up steps with help of staff and they have a wheelchair waiting for him inside.” (Tweet) No other press outlet appears to have reported on the means by which Cochran arrived at the Capitol, though Ben Jacobs of The Guardian retweeted Laslo’s tweet. Earlier in the day, Cochran’s office issued this statement: WASHINGTON,
NEW YORK- Fashion designer Donna Karan is "apologetic from the bottom of my heart" and embarrassed about "stupid" remarks she made last week that suggested sexual harassment victims were "asking for it" by the way they dressed. Her comments on a red carpet touched off outrage online following sexual harassment and assault allegations against fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Karan spoke to Women´s Wear Daily in an interview published Monday, saying she spoke while sleep deprived and without knowing details of the mounting allegations against Weinstein, telling a red carpet reporter: "How do we display ourselves, how do we present
The Hill’s release of information on the collusion between American corporate interests, U.S. government agencies and Russia seems to be all-new material. The text outlines the failure of the U.S. government under Obama to take account of information generated by the FBI on attempts by Russia to gain a financial advantage in the U.S. nuclear industry. “The Swamp” is reflected in the matter of Rosatom at every angle from which it can be viewed. While Rosatom has been in the news before, nothing has brought it to the level of significance seen in these primary documents and the specificity of
The hero Mandalay Bay security guard who vanished hours before he was due to give interviews with major TV networks will now break his silence on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Jesus Campos, who was shot and wounded in the Las Vegas massacre, disappeared from the public eye last week ahead of several TV interviews, including with Fox News´ Sean Hannity. But DeGeneres has now confirmed that the security guard sat down with her for a pre-taped interview that is set to air on Wednesday. ´Tomorrow, the first people to encounter the Las Vegas shooter are here - security guard Jesus
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has been investigating the Uranium One scandal for months. Grassley is expected to ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the Russian Uranium One scandal in Wednesday’s hearing. This is huge news! It was reported earlier today that the FBI uncovered Russian bribery of the Clintons in 2009 and the Department of Justice and the FBI sat on this for four more years. Worse yet, from today’s report we discovered the investigation was supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who is now President Trump’s Deputy Attorney General, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew
Hillary Clinton fell and broke her toe during her book tour in London as President Trump said he hoped she would run for president again in 2020.Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" with a protective walking boot on her right foot.“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe,” Clinton continued, going on to say she received
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown. CBS Sports reported this statement from Geragos: We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the
Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said. He added: ´We live in a land made of
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government
Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC´s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton´s BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I´ve broken my toe. I´ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on
A big get with Harvey Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan wasn’t big enough to pull Megyn Kelly out of her ratings slump. Her “Megyn Kelly Today” viewership slipped from 0.77 ratings points on Monday to 0.54 ratings points on Tuesday of last week. “It’s a possible all-time low for ‘Today.’ It may even be lower than her [Fox] cable show. [NBC News president] Noah [Oppenheim] and [NBC News and MSNBC chairman] Andy [Lack] are in big trouble,” a source told us. Another source added, “That’s a big drop. They have to turn this around.” Kelly also appeared for the first time on MSNBC earlier this
The FBI released emails Monday confirming that former FBI Director James Comey drafted statements regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before the probe was closed. The bureau released a file entitled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation,” to its Freedom of Information Act website. The file contains an email Comey sent May 2, 2016, to several FBI officials regarding the Clinton email probe, which was referred to internally by the codename “Midyear Exam.” The draft statement was first revealed in late August by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham,
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a warning shot after Republican Sen. John McCain questioned "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in America´s foreign policy, saying "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back." McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5½ years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: "I have faced tougher adversaries." Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington, "I´m being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won´t be pretty." He bemoaned McCain´s decisive
