Hollywood director Terry Gilliam has lashed out at the #MeToo movement, calling it a ´mob rule´ and claiming some actresses´ ´did very well out of meeting with Harvey´. ´Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey - that´s the price you pay,´ said the Monty Python member. ´Some people paid the price, other people suffered for it.´ While Gilliam, 77, called Harvey a ´monster´, he saved his harshest words for the more than 84 women who have accused the producer of sexual assault and harassment. ´It is a world of victims,´ Gilliam said. ´I think some people did very

Calling out the female enablers of Perv Swinestein, poster boy of the traditional Hollywood casting coach highway to fame? Must be a misogynist.

Gilliam speaks the truth. "#TheyAllKnew" is exactly right, too. When the righteous tweet "#MeToo" it appears they focusing on their shared profession...what´s a woman who trades her "virtue" for monetary gain called?

I have always assumed that the casting couch was a way for young females of limited talent to manipulate powerful men to give them tons of money and fame.

Until proven otherwise, I am sticking with my view of the "transaction", consenting by both sides, too.

Blizzard eases, but snow will continue
Star Tribune [Minneapolis, MN], by Pamela Miller    Original Article

Snow continued to fall across southern Minnesota Sunday, stretching out an epic weather weekend that closed roads, led to an hourslong airport shutdown and turned the landscape into a winter wonderland — all in mid-April. In the Twin Cities, Saturday´s rare metro-area blizzard warning had eased into a winter weather advisory for Sunday, with 2 to 4 more inches of snow expected to fall through the day, according to the National Weather Service in Chanhassen. Saturday´s blizzard designation, called "historic" by the Weather Service, was the first for the metro area since 2005. (Snip) Across the metro, plows roared, snowblowers whirred

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan avoided criticizing former FBI director James Comey in an interview on Sunday. Asked whether Mr. Comey is a man of integrity, Mr. Ryan responded, “As far as I know.” “I’ve met him two or three times in two or three briefings,” the speaker said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I don’t really know the guy. I’m not trying to be evasive.” (Snip) Mr. Ryan said the last thing he wants to do is “join some food fight, some book-selling food fight. I don’t see any value in that.” The Wisconsin Republican announced last week

‘RACIST + RAPIST’: On Founder’s Day at
U-Va., Jefferson’s statue is defaced

The words “RACIST + RAPIST” were painted on a statue of Thomas Jefferson at the University of Virginia on Friday, the day the school commemorates its founder each year. This year marks the 275th anniversary of his birth. Jefferson has become a fraught symbol as the university delves more deeply into its own complicated history, and as broader cultural battles play out nationally and locally over monuments and race. Jefferson — author of the Declaration of Independence, third U.S. president and founder of the public university — is believed to have had children with a woman who was enslaved on his plantation.

Police are looking for three men who beat up a security guard in Tallahassee last week after they were told a pool party had to come to an end. When the guard — who police said was not authorized to be patrolling the area — asked the rowdy party attendees in bathing suits to leave, three men brutally pounced on him. All it took was one punch to take down the guard, video shows. One attacker jumped on him, while the other two continued to pound him on the ground. It was unclear what the unidentified security guard´s injuries were. The party was held on Sunday, April 1, 2018, at Aqua Palms Apartments, but it wasn't until Friday

The Brooklyn man arrested for the chokehold rape and robbery of a young Bronx teacher has a history of violent sexual attacks, including a 2015 rape arrest, police said. Lynneke Burris, 30, of Prospect-Lefferts Garden, was arrested Thursday night for what police believe was a violent random attack on the 23-year-old high school English teacher in her Concourse Village apartment building about 1 a.m. Burris threw her in a headlock until she passed out, authorities said. When she came to, he raped her in the building’s elevator, took cash, her wallet and demanded her PIN, police said.

The 911 dispatcher placed on leave after failing to help save an Ohio teen crushed to death in his van has been pictured for the first time as it emerges she was previously commended for her stellar work. Amber Smith was identified as the call taker who allegedly flubbed the desperate call from 16-year-old Kyle Plush, as he was being crushed to death in his minivan. (Snip) On Tuesday, Plush used Siri on his iPhone to call 911 from his crushed position, however the call dropped once, and the second time he called back it was dispatcher Smith who answered.

Trenton, NJ — Immigrant students stood up when the vote came down — New Jersey’s assembly gave the final approval needed to send a bill (A-3467) to the governor´s desk that would extend state financial aid for college to undocumented students. Students like Madelyne Montes-Reyes, who left Montclair State University last year because she couldn’t keep up with her tuition payments. (Snip) Since 2013, undocumented students in New Jersey can qualify for cheaper, in-state tuition. But Governor Christie vetoed a measure that would make financial aid available. Dreamers are hoping Governor Phil Murphy will change that. The 49-24 vote will

President Trump on Thursday said the administration will approve year-round sales of gasoline with 15 percent ethanol — a major policy shift for the federal government that indicates the White House is looking to strike a deal between the biofuels industry and its critics. Mr. Trump made the declaration in the Oval Office on Thursday morning. “We’re going to raise it up to 15 percent … makes a lot of people happy,” the president said. “We’re going to go to 12 months … We’ll go from eight months to 12 months.” Under current EPA regulations, E15 is banned during the

City officials in Los Angles want to help pay homeowners with extra space to put small accommodations in their backyards for homeless people. Los Angeles county has been facing a growing homeless population, and there are currently nearly 58,000 people without living shelter. Last month protests called ´Not in my backyard,´ blocked new homeless housing in Temple City and delayed it in Boyle Heights. The protests also killed a project in neighboring Orange County to relocate homeless people living on the streets into shelters. But now, a project has been approved that will pay people in the county to put up basic homes

Mexico’s most popular holiday hotspot has become overrun with drug gangs, as violence in the tourist party town escalates to unprecedented levels. Cancun has seen 14 murders in just 36 hours — the highest ever in the country’s recorded history, according to Noticaribe. The latest violence on April 4 saw 14 people killed and at least five others left with gunshot wounds, in six separate instances in the party town. The figures surpass Cancun’s previous record of nine killings in a day, which was set on Nov. 25, 2004. More than 100 people have been slaughtered in Cancun since the beginning of 2018,

Former House Speaker John Boehner announced Wednesday that he has joined the board of a cannabis dispensary after changing his opinion on the issue. “Over the last 10 or 15 years, the American people’s attitudes have changed dramatically,” Mr. Boehner said, Bloomberg reported. He joined the Acreage Holdings Board, which cultivates, processes and dispenses marijuana in 11 states across the U.S. The move is a big shift for the former speaker who once said he was “unalterably opposed” to legal marijuana. Marijuana activists say Mr. Boehner’s evolution on the issue is an important one for Republicans to show that those in their party

Fleischer, 54, was filming a segment at the corner of Beach Channel Drive and Beach 56th St. in Far Rockaway about 12:30 p.m. when Efram Lacroix stormed up to him and socked him in the face, cops said. The 32-year-old ran off, only to be arrested a few blocks away on Shore Parkway near Beach 57th St. and Rockaway Beach Blvd. Fleischer was interviewing someone while Mayor de Blasio held a press event nearby when he was attacked, officials said.

Michael Cohen is a fraud of a lawyer who works exclusively for President Trump, federal prosecutors charged Friday. “Cohen has told at least one witness that he has only [one] client — President Trump,” the lawyers wrote in court documents, challenging Cohen’s claims that records seized in raids on his home and office Monday should be protected by attorney-client privilege. And he’s barely doing any “legal work” for Trump, either, they claim. “[Reviews of the records] indicate that Cohen is in fact performing little to no legal work, and that zero ­e-mails were exchanged with President Trump,” according to the brief, filed in

A nationally known advocate for gay rights and the environment died Saturday in a fiery Prospect Park suicide, with his self-immolation meant as a wake-up call to save the planet. The charred remains of David Buckel, 60, were discovered shortly after sunrise when firefighters responded to a 6:40 a.m. blaze in the southwest corner of the sprawling Brooklyn park. “I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide,” read a hand-written suicide note left near the blackened circle of burned grass. “I apologize to you for the mess.” A second, longer note — left with the first

Former CIA Director John Brennan reacted to President Donald Trump’s accusations that former FBI Director James Comey was a “slime ball,” a “leaker,” and a “liar.” “Your kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey,” Brennan raged on Twitter. Derived from a Greek word, kakistocracy describes a government by the worst people in a country. He described Trump’s presidency as a “nightmare” for the country, suggesting his supporters were “deceived.” “As the greatest Nation history has known, we have the opportunity to emerge from this nightmare stronger & more committed to ensuring a better life for all Americans, including those you have

The body count is staggering. In my 43 years as a journalist, armies of trained bloodhounds have been run out of newsrooms where I´ve worked, victims of layoffs, and buyouts, and battle fatigue. I´ve lost so many hundreds of colleagues, I can´t keep track of where they ended up. These were smart, curious reporters, photographers and editors who told stories that defined place and time and made us all know each other a little better. They covered the arts and the local sports teams. They bird-dogged city councils, courts, law enforcement, school districts and other agencies that spend our tax dollars, bearing

Former Vice President Dick Cheney called President Donald Trump to thank him for pardoning his former chief of staff, Scooter Libby. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told Breitbart News that Cheney phoned the president after the announcement was made. Before former President George W. Bush left office, he declined to pardon Libby, despite commuting his prison sentence. Cheney was angered by Bush’s decision, telling the president that he had left a soldier on the battlefield in the wake of the partisan investigation of the leak of CIA operative Valarie Plame’s name publicly to the media.

WASHINGTON The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election. It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White House.
