How Entertainment Shows Have Become Vehicles for Gun Control Propaganda

All of the major television networks use their primetime entertainment shows to push a pro-gun control agenda. Liberal television executives apparently think that they have the power to change Americans’ attitudes.

Not liking guns has been portrayed as cool for a long time. It is an old theme that dates back to the original 1980s MacGyver series, in which the titular character avoids using guns and expresses his aversion to them. This theme has continued with the current remake.

But the push to sway public opinion really seems to have picked up. This spring on ABC’s “The Crossing,” the sheriff’s young son says, “I don’t like guns” when a deputy suggests he may someday replace his father. The deputy appears discomforted by the exchange.

EXCLUSIVE: Riverside gun store confronts Sacha Baron Cohen after he comes to business in disguise

A Riverside gun store owner has harsh words for Sacha Baron Cohen after he says he caught the actor showing up to his business in disguise and under false pretense, and it was all caught on surveillance video.

The video was provided exclusively to FOX 11.

It happened at Warrior One Guns & Ammo in February 2017. That’s when owner Norris Sweidan told FOX 11 Cohen and a camera met him while claiming to be filming a documentary about a Hungarian immigrant wanting to buy a gun.

“He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video I’m looking like, this guy does not look like a Hungarian immigrant, tight ass leather pants, a beard, it just didn’t fit,” Sweidan said. “The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s***.”

Sweidan told FOX 11 Cohen said he wanted to buy a gun, but said it with a very odd sounding accent he didn’t find credible.

Whoopi Goldberg demands Homeland Security stage Trump intervention

As pundits across the US continue their descent into rage over President Donald Trump’s “treasonous” meeting with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Whoopi Goldberg has called on Homeland Security to intervene.

Speaking on ‘The View’ on Monday, Goldberg and her fellow presenters competed to see who could be the most enraged about Trump’s behavior at the Helsinki summit with Putin.

John McCain’s daughter Megan got the most words in, addressing National Security Advisor John Bolton and the Trump administration. “Are you an America first, do you not believe in genocide? Or are you going to allow the chemical gassing of children right now?”

However, it was Godlberg’s call for the Department of Homeland security to step in that won out in the end.

Tintagel Castle on the bluffs of Cornwall is revealing its surprising secrets

On the rocky north coast of Cornwall stands what is left of Tintagel Castle, built more than 1,000 years ago to house a royal family that lived lavishly on provisions and food imported from Turkey, Spain, and other countries on the Mediterranean.

An ongoing archaeological dig at the castle has unearthed pieces of French and Spanish glassware, top quality tableware from Turkey, and wine, oil, and amphora from Greece. Unearthed bones show sheep, goats, pigs, and cows were regularly butchered and cooked. Seafood such as fish and oysters also filled in the diet of the people who lived there in the 5th to the 7th centuries, people who historians believe may have been rulers of Cornwall.

Glenn Close: ‘The Things This Country was Founded on Threatened’ By Trump

Actress Glenn Close is discouraged by the state of America today and, like most Hollywood celebrities, she believes it is all President Donald Trump’s fault.

The Fatal Attraction star also thinks the U.S. Constitution is in danger: “I feel that our Constitution is not being defended and I feel that many of the things that this country was founded on … [are] being threatened.”

The Fatal Attraction star said she wants leaders who live a “high intellectual life,” who have a “real moral sense,” and who understand that the Constitution is “fragile.”

It's Atlas ant! Weightlifting insect carries fruit on its head in Greek God style show of strength

How's this for super-human antics – these eye-catching photos show the immense strength of a weaver ant in Indonesia, balancing and carrying fruit on its teeny-tiny head.

And while it's not holding up a celestial globe, the powerful ant is clearly the insect version of Atlas, one of the strongest and most powerful of all Titans in Greek mythology.

The stunning images were taken by Eko Adiyanto, who captured the super-strong ants with his macro photography equipment, while the insects were at work in his garden in West Java.

What makes them all the more remarkable is that the weaver ant weighs around 5mg.

Amazing balancing act: this ant carefully balances a hollow fruit on its feelers, giving the impression that it is lifting a great weight in the photographer's garden in West Java, Indonesia

I will say this: I do not see any reason why it would be (Russia),” fumed Oscar-winner Michael Moore, adding, “Arrest Trump when Air Force One lands. I want to see him in chains.”

A flea market ring picked up for $13 was sold for $850,000 at Sotheby’s

Whether you’re in the search of a Boho vintage dress, a unique belt buckle, or maybe even a cute vase for your collection of trinkets, any flea market is the place to be. Everyone is looking for their own great deal. But one English lady unknowingly picked out something quite remarkable at a “car boot sale” at West Middlesex Hospital, London, in the 1980s. What she believed to be a piece of costume jewelry made the headlines 30 years later.

It was just a regular Sunday sale when the woman bought a ring she fancied for £10 ($13). She wore that ring for the next 30 years, shopping, working, running errands, until she discovered, to her astonishment, it was actually set with a 26-carat diamond that was cut in the 19th century.

Devoted couple in their 90s celebrate their anniversary having not spent a single night apart in 70 years of marriage

A devoted couple who have never spent a night apart are celebrating an astonishing 70 years of wedded bliss.

Dick Cheney Signs a Waterboarding Kit in a New Promo for Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime Show

Well, in case you were wondering if Sacha Baron Cohen’s still got it, the comedian’s new Trump-skewering Showtime series, which appears to be titled Who Is America?, just dropped a new promo in which his (still as-yet unseen) journalist character asks former vice-president Dick Cheney to sign a waterboarding kit, which Cheney does with a smile. Now why, in this year of our Lord, in this time in American politics, after more than two decades of faux political comedy shows humiliating their interviewees, would Dick Cheney agree to jokingly sign a waterboard kit in front of a television camera?

Clever Marketing: Ancient Greek prostitutes wore sandals that printed a message in the ground reading, “Follow me”

Prostitution was and is part of almost all cultures around the world, ancient and modern.

The history of prostitution is a very complex one, and it cannot be simplified and understood only as the result of poor lifestyle choices or the product of unfortunate circumstances.

The earliest data on prostitution dates back to the days of the Sumerian culture in ancient Mesopotamia where the profession thrived along with the growth of the marketplaces that attracted the traders and sailors.

The Sumerian goddess Inanna, better known as Ishtar, one of the most prominent cults worshiped across the Middle East was, among other things, a patron of prostitutes and public houses.

Prostitution was also part of Ancient Greek society where it was reasonably accepted. Between the 8th and the 5th centuries BC, prostitution was legal in Athens, and like any other occupation, everyone in the business had to pay taxes on their income. There were two types of sex workers, pornai, and hetairai.

The bizarre story of the dragon’s rib in the cathedral of Atessa

Among the religious artifacts found in the Italian city of Atessa is a long and rather large bone. Kept in a church, it is rumored to be the rib of a dragon that once terrorized the area.

While the idea is fanciful, there is an exciting tale of bravery and blood-letting behind it, one that would make Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin himself sit up and take notice.

Back in the mists of time, there were two villages called Ate and Tixa. Each stood on a hill and between them was a valley, otherwise known as the dragon’s lair.

Much like the character of Smaug in The Hobbit, this arrogant flame spewer dominated the land. If the villagers were going to rid themselves of its presence, they would need help.

Enter Leucio, otherwise known as the Bishop of Brindisi. He captured and slayed the beast single-handed, doing it by the sheer power of his faith.

Donald Trump has demanded that his upcoming summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin start with a one-on-one meeting. Just Trump, Putin, and presumably at least one translator. Why Trump has demanded this alone time with the “just fine” Putin, is not at all clear. But the possibility that Trump will give away a vital US interest during this meeting is real.

Gorgeous Color Photos of 19 Year-Old Brigitte Bardot at the Cannes Film Festival

Bardot was born in Paris, the daughter of Louis Bardot (1896–1975) and Anne-Marie “Toty” Bardot (née Mucel; 1912–1978). Louis had an engineering degree and worked with his father, Charles Bardot, in the family business. Louis and Anne-Marie married in 1933. Bardot grew up in an upper-middle-class Roman Catholic observant home When she was seven she was admitted to the Cours Hattemer, a private school. She went to school three days a week and otherwise studied at home. This gave time for lessons at Madame Bourget’s dance studio three days a week. Brigitte’s mother also enrolled Brigitte’s younger sister, Marie-Jeanne (born 5 May 1938), in dance. Marie-Jeanne eventually gave up dancing lessons and did not tell her mother, whereas Brigitte concentrated on ballet. In 1947, Bardot was accepted to the Conservatoire de Paris. For three years she attended ballet classes by Russian choreographer Boris Knyazev. One of her classmates was Leslie Caron.

Sony posts whole movie on YouTube in trailer's place

Thousands of people watched a film posted in its entirety to YouTube by its US distributor before the apparent mistake was tackled.

Sony Pictures Entertainment had labelled the video as being a trailer for the movie Khali the Killer.

The video was wiped after being online for more than six hours but not before news of its availability had spread.

YouTuber in row over copyright infringement of his own song

Paul had been contacted by YouTube to advise him that one of his videos had been flagged for copyright infringement, but in his own words, "this was a little different".

The copyright he had apparently infringed upon was his own.

"It said what song I was infringing on," Paul explained. "What I found was quite shocking.

"Someone took my track, added vocals and guitar to make their own track, and uploaded it to YouTube, but I got the copyright infringement notice!"

He had been accused of plagiarising his own music - and worse, all the money that video was earning would now be directed towards the person who copied his content.

Osamu Tezuka, “father of Manga,” wanted to help Japanese overcome depression over World War II

In recent decades, manga comics have gained worldwide popularity and have achieved a dedicated and sometimes extended fan base. In fact, many western comics use elements of manga-style, and many contemporary cartoonists and animators use the Simhon inspiration from the vibrant and dynamic style of Japanese contemporary cartoons.

Its roots are centuries old. Although in the mid-1950s, modern manga comics gained popularity in Japan, but in the late 19th century the rules for the creation of manga comics were established. At the beginning of the 18th century, the word manga is related to comics in Japan, and stylish elements used by manga artists are present in Japanese art since the 12th century.

The modern style of manga comics was developed and popularized by Osamu Tezuka, nowadays called "Father of manga" and "Lord of manga". Tezuka was born in 1928 and started writing comics in elementary school.

American Revolutionary Song: Chester - William Billings

Chester was a patriotic anthem composed by William Billings and sung during the American Revolutionary War. Billings wrote the first version of the song for his 1770 songbook The New England Psalm Singer, and made improvements for the version in his The Singing Master's Assistant (1778). It is the latter version that is best known today.

The curious title of the song reflects a common practice of Billings's day, in which tunes were labeled with (often arbitrarily chosen) place names. Billings's song evidently has little more to do with any particular town named Chester than his hymn tune Africa has to do with Africa. With identifiable names for compositions, performers could select different lyrics to sing with the music without creating confusion.
This song would rival Yankee Doodle as the unofficial anthem of the rebel colonies

American Revolutionary War Song:Ballad of the Green Mountain Boys

Lyrics:

Ho--all to the borders! Vermonters, come down,
With your britches of deerskin and jackets of brown;
With your red woolen caps and your moccasins come,
To the gathering summons of trumpet and drum.
Come down with your rifle!
Let gray wolf and fox
Howl on in the shadow of primitive rocks;
Let bear feed securely from pig-pen and stall;
Here's two-legged game for your powder and ball.
Then cheer, cheer, the green mountaineer, then cheer, cheer the green mountaineer

On the south came the Hessians, our land to police;
And armed for the battle while canting of peace;
On our east came the British, the red coated band
To hang up our leaders and eat up our land.
Ho--all to the rescue! For Satan shall work
No gain for the legions of Hampshire and York!
They claim our possessions--the pitiful knaves--
The tribute we pay shall be prisons and graves!
Then cheer, cheer, the green mountaineer, then cheer, cheer the green mountaineer

Poem for a New American Century

Go Fourth
by a female Faust

Land isn't free, but it sure is divisible
But the hand of the market is visible
O say can you say if you see something you ought

Not so brave when it comes to the rent
Who can save up what's already spent
O say can you see why this was all you were taught

Truth is spoken to Power that fears it
It gets louder when nobody hears it
Over not being heard soon enough Power gets fought

No one knows it but everyone hides it
No one can tell you why nobody tries it
(But everyone wonders why no one gets caught)

- Since you can bet that they'll never be telling
Never mind finding out just what they're selling
Better ask what it was that you bought

The Berners Street Hocks - The Greatest Joke of the 19th Century

Theodore Hook was born on September 22, 1788 in Charlotte Street, London. He was the son of popular songs James Hook.

He was educated in private schools and he spent a year at Harrow School. Theodor was only 16 years old when he started working closely with his father on music, which included the return of successful soldiers, a comic opera which was very popular with the public.

The return of a soldier brought him £ 50 when he was only sixteen. During the next five or six years, they built many farms and melodramas.

For the things that Hook was most remembered, among them was the love of fans, practical jokes and fraud.

Hollywood stars back BDS

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel received another boost after Hollywood stars Viggo Mortensen and Danny Glover gave their backing. The actors were amongst 79 international artists, writers and producers from all fields of the arts in the UK, the US, Germany and beyond, plus public figures including Desmond Tutu, Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, to speak out against what they say is an “alarming form of censorship, “blacklisting” and repression” of pro-Palestinian activists.

Their concerns over the suppression of free speech was raised in an open letter published in the Guardian today after an award-winning band called the Young Fathers was disinvited from an arts festival in Germany. The Scottish band was under pressure to declare themselves non-supporters of the Palestinian-led BDS movement for human rights as a condition of appearing at the festival later this summer.

Spotify Is Issuing Refunds to Subscribers Who Felt Spammed by Drake

Spotify is now refunding at least some subscribers who felt spammed by ‘Drake ads’ this past weekend.

Drake is laughing all the way to the bank. Spotify, on the other hand, may have some cleaning up to do. Now, a highly-vocal group of angry subscribers are demanding refunds, and it looks like Spotify is giving it to at least some of them.

The issue isn’t that Drake’s Scorpion was getting promoted on Spotify. It’s that Spotify was pushing this album into every nook and cranny of the platform, and effectively spamming users who had little interest in the artist.

Not everyone likes Drake or rap. Hence the irritation.

Terrifying stories from tourists in Mexico continue a year after mysterious drowning

A year after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel brought to light a suspicious drowning and other troubling accounts from tourists vacationing at upscale all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, the stories continue to surface.

In one recent case, a 51-year-old mother and her two adult daughters blacked out simultaneously after drinking a shot of tequila.

'Call her Tiffany, it will devastate her': Michelle Wolf compares Ivanka Trump to vaginal mesh, a cancerous tumor, herpes and the recalled birth control pill Yaz in 'unhinged' rant

Michelle Wolf took aim at Ivanka Trump on her Netflix show over the weekend just two months after her polarizing performance at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner.

The comedian was encouraging her viewers to begin harassing politicians more often, and as an example of how best to engage offered up some ways to get under the first daughter's skin.

'If you see Ivanka on the street, first call her Tiffany. This will devastate her,' said Wolf.

'Then talk to her in terms she will understand. Say: "Ivanka, you’re like vaginal mesh. You were supposed to support women but now you have blood all over you and you’re the center of a thousand lawsuits."'

And she did not stop there.

EXCLUSIVE: Documents reveal Pentagon censorship of military suicides, trauma in Hollywood

A 2016 study found that 20 US veterans kill themselves every day. Department of Defence (DOD )statistics show that the suicide rate among veterans is around twice the rate in the non-military population. An analysis in 2017 said that a suicide attempt in a military unit makes other attempts more likely, and that 20% of all the suicides in the US are by military veterans.

These brutal statistics testify to the futility of our post-9/11 wars, as well as the horrors inflicted on those employed to fight these wars on the ground.

What has never previously been reported is the extent to which the Pentagon’s entertainment liaison offices manipulate and censor films, TV shows and documentaries to try to downplay or erase the widespread problem of military PTSD and suicide.

“Last Man Standing” Cast Gets Shakeup at Fox

When Tim Allen’s hit sitcom “Last Man Standing” was abruptly canceled by ABC News, many suspected that the decision was political, given the conservative themes common on the show. The show garnered spectacular ratings for ABC, and the cancellation came just a week after Allen made a public comment about his support of President Trump on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show. Ironically, Allen actually warned about the consequences of publicly supporting Trump in Hollywood during those remarks.

“I’m not kidding. You gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes.” Then he joked, “This is like ‘30s Germany. I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, ‘You know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.’”

Michael Moore says we must 'put our bodies on the line' to stop Trump as the liberal director gears up for the release of his new film that documents the presidency

Filmmaker Michael Moore has revealed details of upcoming documentary about Donald Trump's presidency.

The film, titled Fahrenheit 11/9, is a play on the title of his 2004 documentary about former President George W Bush. However, this title references the day Trump won the presidency in 2016.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the liberal filmmaker said the film explores 'how the hell we got in this situation and how we're going to get out of it.'

During his Thursday night interview, Moore spoke of the president and said: 'Look, we’re in deep, deep trouble here.'

NZ Government mulls reining in ballooning Hollywood film subsidies NZ$600 million

The New Zealand taxpayer has forked out nearly $600 million to Hollywood producers since 2010 to support the Wellington-dominated film industry, and despite commissioning numerous studies the Government is unclear whether this represents money well spent.

The subsidy scheme, originally conceived to facilitate filming of the Lord of the Rings, has steadily increased over the past two decades and now sees mostly overseas producers paid subsidies of up to a quarter of production costs - resulting in $161m paid to the makers of the wildly profitable Hobbit trilogy and $12m for animation on Alvin and the Chipmunks 4.

It also appears $3m of the $31m paid to makers of Ghost in the Shell, a critically derided science fiction bomb filmed in Wellington in 2016, was used to subsidise the A-list salary of starlet Scarlett Johansson.

The Government is now looking at ways to limit taxpayer exposure to a high-profile film subsidy scheme.
