ABC Confirms ‘Roseanne’ Will Return to the Air, Without Roseanne Barr

ABC has made it official: The high-rated “Roseanne” is too good to give up on, and it will return to the air as “The Conners.”

Why the name change? Because the original show’s star, Roseanne Barr, will not be involved. Barr will have no creative or financial stake in the new production.

As TMZ first reported, the negotiations were being finalized and the only delay involved negotiations with Barr herself.

All the other actors have confirmed they will be returning to the show which was TV’s highest-rated sitcom in more than three years until it was abruptly canceled after Barr sent a racial tweet to former Obama White House advisor Valerie Jarrett on May 29.

Peter Fonda’s Disturbing and Unforgiving History of Defending Child Rape: It’s Not Like The Rapist of 13-yr-old “Killed Anyone”

We travel back to 2009 when Fonda snapped after Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland on a 1978 US warrant for raping a 13-year-old girl.

Yes. 13.

Polanski, a Hollywood hero, plead guilty and jumped bail, fleeing to Paris, France.

But it was Fonda, who has a daughter of his own, who has often defended Polanski’s sex with a child, once calling his arrest an outrage in a rant and said it’s not like Polanski killed the girl.

What? This is your brain on Peter Fonda, kids.

From 2009:

Peter Fonda has joined the growing list of Hollywood rape apologists, telling a Zurich radio station, “we should have been celebrating the arrest of Osama bin Laden and not the arrest of Polanski.”

Wait a minute, they caught bin Laden?!?

Nope, Fonda’s just being totally nonsensical. Speaking of which, he might just win the award for most galling justification of child rape, not to mention fleeing the country before sentencing, I’ve yet seen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Normally I do not do entertainment news here at What Really Happened, but Peter Fonda has really pissed me off!

Donald Trump Jr. Torches Peter Fonda Over Vile Attack on 12-Year-Old Barron

Donald Trump Jr. hit back at actor Peter Fonda late Wednesday morning after the Oscar-nominee publicly called for a mob to kidnap his 12-year-old brother, Barron Trump, and throw him in a cage with pedophiles.

“You’re clearly a sick individual and everyone is an internet badass but rather than attack an 11 year old like a bully and a coward why don’t you pick on someone a bit bigger.,” Don Jr. closed with “LMK,” which means “let me know.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sic 'em, Don!

Bridge: US Liberals Are Clinically Insane And Care Nothing For The American People

The mass hysteria that swept across Liberal America, like one giant tear tsunami, following Hillary Clinton’s ‘surprise’ loss in the 2016 presidential election has reached a new level of madness and can now be described as a deep-seated psychosis.

There are some understandable reasons for the Left’s collective mental breakdown. Briefly, ‘Russiagate’ is disintegrating into a burlesque theater of the absurd, while Trump – from jump-starting the Heartland’s industrial sector, to making peace with a nuclear-armed dictator, to ‘winning’ the World Cup – is on a serious roll. If the momentum continues, it may give the Republicans a crucial victory in November congressional midterms. The Democrats, acutely aware as to what is at stake yet unable to stop Trump, are showing a side of their character that can be best described as treacherous. And in order to see the symptoms of a disintegrating Democratic Party one only need look at the US entertainment industry.

THE PRO-WAR MEDIA DESERVE CRITICISM, NOT SAINTHOOD

The media nowadays are busy congratulating themselves for their vigorous criticism of Donald Trump. To exploit that surge of sanctimony, Hollywood producer Steven Spielberg rushed out The Post, a movie depicting an epic press battle with the Nixon administration. Critics raved over the film, which the New York Post enthusiastically labeled “journalism porn of the highest order.” Boston Public Radio station WBUR called it the “most fun you’ll ever have at a civics lesson.”

Spielberg, touting his movie, claimed that “the free press is a crusader for truth,” But the media hoopla around The Post is akin to geezers boasting of having shown moments of courage when they were almost 50 years younger.

Police suspect Hollywood mogul was go-between for PM, newspaper chief — report

Police investigators reportedly have evidence that Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan, suspected of giving bribes to Benjamin Netanyahu in one case, also acted as a middleman in a suspected illegal deal discussed by the prime minister and Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes in a separate case.

The Tel Aviv district prosecution believes that Netanyahu “systematically” demanded benefits worth about NIS 1 million ($282,000) from Milchan in so-called Case 1000, public broadcaster Kan reported last month.

According to a report Tuesday by Hadashot TV news, police have evidence that Milchan was also involved in Case 2000, which involves a suspected illicit quid-pro-quo deal between Netanyahu and Mozes that would have seen the prime minister hobble a rival daily, the Sheldon Adelson-backed Israel Hayom, in exchange for more favorable coverage from Yedioth.

I Remember When America Was A Free Country

I remember when America was a free country. You could get on an airliner without an ID. Driving licenses didn’t even have photos. If a friend was coming through your city on a flight and had a few hours layover, you could meet them inside the airport for lunch or dinner. You could meet friends, children, and relatives at the gate or see them off at the gate. Parents could actually put children on the plane and grandparents could take them off.

Your flight ticket was good at any airline. If something happened to your flight or you missed it, you could use the ticket on another airline going to the same place. On international flights you were permitted two free stopovers prior to your destination. If you were going to Athens, Greece, for example, you could first visit Paris and then Rome. It worked both ways, over and back. So one air ticket, six cities.

Actor Peter Fonda Suggests Trump’s Son Should Be Put ‘In A Cage With Pedophiles’ In A Twitter Rant

Hollywood actor and activist Peter Fonda has let loose on Twitter in protest at the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policies which have seen 2,000 children separated from parents at the US-Mexico border.

During the multiple-tweet rant, Fonda suggested that Trump’s 12-year-old son Barron should be ripped away from his mother Melania and put “in a cage with pedophiles” to see if she will “stand up against” her husband then.

OFFICE OF FIRST LADY CALLS SECRET SERVICE AFTER ACTOR PETER FONDA CALLS FOR BARRON TRUMP TO BE KIDNAPPED

The Office of the First Lady has notified the Secret Service after actor Peter Fonda called for kidnapping Melania and Donald Trump’s son, Barron, The Daily Caller has learned exclusively.

In a tweet sent Wednesday, the actor called for Barron to be “ripped” from Melania’s arms and put in a cage “with pedophiles.”

Disney & Studios Can’t Dodge Claims Over Stolen Technology

Disney and other major film studios cannot dodge lawsuits claiming they used stolen technology to create lifelike animated characters in top-grossing films like “Beauty and the Beast,” a federal judge ruled Monday.

Finding it plausible that the studios knew they were using stolen software and that they directly benefited from that use, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar refused to dismiss claims of vicarious and contributory copyright infringement.

“Liability here could be very substantial,” Mark Carlson, a lawyer for plaintiff Rearden LLC, said in an interview.

Rearden, a San Francisco-based technology firm, sued the studios last year.

Rearden claims Disney, Twenty-First Century Fox, Paramount Pictures and video game maker Crystal Dynamics knowingly contracted with Digital Domain 3.0, or DD3, a company that acquired a stolen version of its facial performance motion capture technology.

Disney issues seizure warning about 'Incredibles 2' for fans with epilepsy

On Friday, Walt Disney Pictures sent an advisory to theaters showing "Incredibles 2," asking them flag customers to the scene.

AMC supervisor Mauricio Mencia, who's worked at the Universal CityWalk location in Los Angeles for the past year, says, "I've never seen something like that happen."

The memo, which has been shared on social media, says: " 'Incredibles 2' contains a sequence of flashing lights, which may affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or other photosensitivities."

Kathy Griffin unleashes profanity-laced tirade at Melania Trump: 'F--- you, Melanie'

The first lady had weighed in earlier in the day. “Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families & hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform. She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws but also a country that governs w/heart,” her office told Fox News.

Griffin then tweeted: “F--- you, Melanie. You know damn well your husband can end this immediately...you feckless complicit piece of s---.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another desperate attempt by Kathy Griffin to seem relevant.

Dem Candidate Calls to "Address Toxic Masculinity," 'No Guns Or Ammo For Anyone On No Fly List'

Levi Tillerman, grandson of late 'holocaust survivor' Congressman Tom Lantos, also wants to impeach Trump for "aiding white supremacists & treason." Levi begins, "Most mass shooters are men. We must end the toxic culture of violence which ties masculinity to warfare & guns. We must nurture young boys, not indoctrinate them into violence and domination." He adds a proposal of "No Fly No Buy - NO guns or ammo for anyone on the no fly list," despite the fact that hundreds of thousands or more Americans are placed on these 'terrorist' lists secretly, with no crime committed, no due process and with no legitimate reason given.

Kathy Griffin Slams Kevin Hart for Not Trashing Trump: ‘That’s a Pu**y Move Because He’s a Black Man’

Self-proclaimed “D-list” celebrity Kathy Griffin launched a racially charged attack on actor and stand-up comedy megastar Kevin Hart over his refusal to bash President Donald Trump from the stage at his sellout shows.
“I do feel like this is such an anxiety-ridden time for everyone that there is a thirst for all kinds of comedy,” Griffin said in an interview with USA Today published on Wednesday “And look, if you want to not hear about Trump at all, go see Kevin Hart. He doesn’t even mention Trump. I personally think that’s a (expletive) move because he’s a black man. But I guess he’s selling more tickets than I ever will.”

After his expletive-laden rant about Trump, Robert De Niro apologizes - to Canadians

A day after he took a swipe at President Donald Trump, Robert De Niro has apologized -- not to the commander-in-chief but for him.

The actor was in Toronto Monday for the groundbreaking of the Canadian Nobu restaurant, which he was launching alongside celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
During his remarks, De Niro said,
"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president."

Jun 12 11:33

Raging Bull$#!%

Trashing the President is the new national pastime. This movement has inspired the most tiresome, predictable, and myopic political commentary and art of my lifetime. In a rare and paradoxical alignment, many establishment mouthpieces and extremists are preaching the same message. They would have us believe that everything was peachy until the orange man stepped into office. Hollywood celebrites are foaming at the mouth with the same lame act we have heard a thousand times to the cheers of the people who voted to put a corrupt warmonger and her serial rapist husband in the White House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Robert De Niro can scream "*UCK TRUMP" on TV without fear...

Then Trump isn't a dictator, is he?

Young Fathers bullied by German festival to renounce support for Palestinian rights

A German music festival is trying to bully artists into dropping their support for Palestinian human rights.

The Ruhrtriennale festival is threatening to cancel the 18 August performance by the Scotland-based band Young Fathers unless they publicly renounce the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights.

“This McCarthyite political testing should be opposed by all who care about free speech,” PACBI, the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, stated.

How to succeed on Broadway: Robert DeNiro yells 'f*** Trump' TWICE during a foul-mouthed tirade on stage at the Tony Awards - and gets a standing ovation

Robert DeNiro yelled 'f*** Trump' during a foul-mouthed rant at the Tony Awards and got a standing ovation.

Trump-bashing stars like De Niro and Maher now hate him so much they’d rather see America sucked into war and recession than for him to succeed – we used to call that treason

Robert De Niro marched onto last night’s Tony Awards show stage like a man possessed, exuding raw fury and menace from every pore.

If you could morph his most violent, unhinged on-screen characters into one smoldering carcass of molten human hatred and ferocity, then this was that hybrid beast.

De Niro was part Max Cady, part Travis Bickle, mixed up with lashings of Jake La Motta and Jimmy Conway.

And he was intent on unleashing a verbal weapon of mass destruction at the man he despises more than life itself: Donald J. Trump.

LAURA INGRAHAM RESPONDS TO DE NIRO’S ANTI-TRUMP OUTBURST AT TONY AWARDS: A ‘GIFT’ TO TRUMP

Robert De Niro rocked Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Sunday night, declaring “Fuck Trump” (twice) on stage, bringing the audience to its feet for a standing ovation.

The comment wasn’t out of the ordinary for De Niro, who has made his disdain for President Donald Trump known, often with the use of expletives, many times before.

Making the declaration so brazenly at the Tony Awards is sure to provide fodder for the culture war between the dastardly Hollywood elites and Trump supporters.

Laura Ingraham was the first to signal the upcoming onslaught, taking to Twitter shortly after the end of the Tony’s to point out the ooutburst is, “Another ‘celebutainment’ gift to the GOP & [Trump].”

Yeah, I'm sick of bein' told what to do

Not a one single person on God's golden shore
Is entitled to one single thing

Anthony Bourdain, Lover of Food and Enemy to All Tyrants, Has Died

Anthony Bourdain, host of the food and travel shows Parts Unknown and No Reservations, author of the eminently readable memoir Kitchen Confidential, and friend of this magazine, was found dead of an apparent suicide Friday in a hotel room in France. He was 61.

The reactions on social media seem—for now, at least—to be universally sorrowful, which speaks to the joy and intensity and courage he exuded as an ambassador for both American brashness and a unique kind of culinary cultural relativism.

He was a proponent of peace and free exchange who used his platform to redirect America's attention to the places we ravaged and then forgot about. He loved Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia; he despised Henry Kissinger.

WOW: John Fitzgerald, Republican Who Challenges The Israeli Lobby & The "Official Narrative" Of The Holocaust WINS GOP Congressional Primary In Calif(!!!)

"I find it interesting that simply pointing out the fact that Jews played a predominant role in the African Slave Trade; along with questioning Israel and challenging their control over U.S. foreign-policy, consequently gets me labeled an anti-Semite and NAZI by Former Republican Chairman, Ron Nehring. I will bet that he has NEVER taken the time to read the numerous and informative links I have provided on my website that substantiate my claims. Does Mr. Nehring find it interesting that the ONLY historical issue that lands people in prison– in eighteen countries and counting– is the holocaust? This is a fact! Why is this and why do so many people get imprisoned under Orwellian Hate-Speech laws, simply for challenging any aspect of it outside the “official narrative?”

Conservatives Must Build Their Own Culture or Be Exiles Inside Their Own Society

Liberals want to win the victory they can’t achieve at the ballot box by using their cultural power to systematically marginalize and exclude Normal Americans from every aspect of society – and we can’t let them. From the business world to Hollywood, we are seeing them react to their utter repudiation in recent elections by trying to intimidate us into silent conformity as the price of us being allowed to participate in the non-governmental institutions of society. We must therefore have a two-part response to this act of cultural warfare – not only must we get right back in their smug little faces, but we must also build our own cultural institutions, ones that they can’t control.

The militant Normals built this country; they can build their own institutions too.

Plans Are Being Made to Bring ‘Roseanne’ Back to TV, With One Huge Catch

ABC is in serious financial trouble, as the decision to abruptly cancel ‘Roseanne’ could cost the network as much as $60 million. No matter what, thanks to union and contract rules, many of the show’s employees and actors will have to be paid for the entire 13 episodes of the second season, which was just about to start production. That result caused by that one angry tweet Roseanne sent to former Obama apparatchik Valerie Jarrett has a hefty price tag, as more than 100 people worked on the show.

The situation is so dire that ABC executives are reportedly ready to reboot the sitcom again, despite the political fallout. However, the rumor is they would do it with a replacement for Roseanne Barr as the main character!

Too Much Bad News Can Make You Sick, Say Researchers

PHILADELPHIA (CNN) – With every news alert or breaking story, our world seems to be pushed further and further into crisis. It is taking a serious toll on our environment but also on our mental health.

The world has always been stressful, but experiencing acute events occurring thousands of miles away is a new and challenging phenomenon. On any given day, it feels like the world is falling apart.

How can we brace for disaster and find the strength to withstand it? How will we adapt to our greater exposure to trauma? And will our mental health be sacrificed in the process?

In trilogy with Muhammad Ali, the words hurt Joe Frazier most

Ali's daughter came out in the Roseanne controversy saying her father would not approve and would never stoop so low. I remember different!

We remember Ali calling Frazier “ugly,” an “Uncle Tom” and, especially, a “gorilla.” And even those of us too young to have stayed up to learn the result of a 15-round prizefight in the 1970s recall how black people laughed and laughed at this.

“I’m cringing in my car right now just thinking about it,” says Janks Morton Jr. He visited Frazier in Philadelphia in the early 1970s with his dad, Janks Morton Sr., who trained Sugar Ray Leonard and was close friends with Frazier’s sparring partner, heavyweight champ-to-be Ken Norton. “I can still see [Ali] sitting next to Howard Cosell punching that [rubber] black gorilla, saying, ‘It’s going to be a thrilla in Manila when I kill that gorilla.’?”

Hit Charade

Millions of Swifties and KatyCats—as well as Beliebers, Barbz, and Selenators, and the Rihanna Navy—would be stunned by the revelation that a handful of people, a crazily high percentage of them middle-aged Scandinavian men, write most of America’s pop hits. It is an open yet closely guarded secret, protected jealously by the labels and the performers themselves, whose identities are as carefully constructed as their songs and dances. The illusion of creative control is maintained by the fig leaf of a songwriting credit. The performer’s name will often appear in the list of songwriters, even if his or her contribution is negligible. (There’s a saying for this in the music industry: “Change a word, get a third.”) But almost no pop celebrities write their own hits. Too much is on the line for that, and being a global celebrity is a full-time job.

In Chicago, Jarrett’s family joined a circle with some other interesting characters:

Frank Marshall Davis was an African-American born in Kansas in 1905 who eventually moved to Chicago and joined Communist Party USA. Notably, he joined the party after the signing of the Hitler-Stalin Pact, a time when many American communists, particularly Jewish-American communists, left the party. They left because Stalin’s signing of the pact facilitated and enabled Hitler’s invasion of Poland and start of World War II. Frank Marshall Davis, however, was undeterred. He joined after the pact.

Shakira cancels Israel concert after pressure from BDS

Columbian star Shakira will not be performing in Tel Aviv this year following pressure from activists who support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) said in a statement yesterday that it “welcomes the announcement that Shakira will not be performing in Tel Aviv anytime soon, dashing Israel’s hopes to use her name to art-wash its latest massacre in Gaza.”

“Hundreds of Palestinian municipalities and cultural organisations, as well as thousands of fans and boycott activists, from Gaza and Lebanon to Colombia and the US, appealed to Shakira to cancel,” PACBI added in its statement.

Last week, on 24 May, Palestinian cultural institutions and local administrations urged the Grammy Award-winning singer not to hold a concert in Tel Aviv as was scheduled.

Pro-pedophilia messages now being embedded in Hollywood movies for CHILDREN

The deeply disturbing message being conveyed here – and to children, no less – is that, in order to achieve what you want in life, sometimes you have to let other people do things to you that are uncomfortable and invasive. In this case, allowing someone to touch your private parts could be a necessary requirement in order to “win” a competition.

This is how many actors and actresses make it in Hollywood, after all – and politicians in Washington, too. It’s actually been suggested that rape and pedophilia are obligatory “rites of passage” for many young stars and starlets to make it in the ‘biz, which is exactly what “Show Dogs” seems to be suggesting – using cute, fluffy animals, of course.

...

“Children’s movies must be held to a higher standard, and must teach children bodily autonomy, the ability to say ‘no’ and safety, not confusing messages endorsing unwanted genital touching.”

Harvey Weinstein 'wanted to make a documentary about his fall from grace' that would have told his side of the sexual assault allegations 'once this was all over'

Harvey Weinstein was planning to have a film documentary made about him before he turned himself in to New York City police on Friday, it has been reported.

The disgraced film producer reached out to associates in Hollywood to help him make a movie in which he would give a defense against the allegations made by scores of women, Page Six reported.

'He's been trying to get a documentary done on himself,' a film industry source told Page Six.

'He wanted to make a film he could control — he'd been calling people.'

But a spokesperson for Weinstein denied that such a project was ever in the works.

'He isn't interested in a documentary about his experience,' a source close to Weinstein told Page Six. 'Didn't happen.'

Harvey Weinstein posts $1M CASH bail, agrees to wear GPS bracelet and plans to enter a plea of NOT GUILTY after he is seen smiling and laughing while being booked on rape charges

Harvey Weinstein was all smiles as he was charged with multiple counts of rape in a New York courtroom on Friday.

The 66-year-old disgraced movie mogul was arrested, processed and booked for the alleged sexual assault of two women shortly after 7:30am, arriving alone in a chauffeured SUV before being taken in to the station by two detectives.

He then headed off in handcuffs to criminal court, where he was paraded around in front of spectators and looked to be in a daze, exclaiming at one point: 'Wow.'

Weinstein's attorney Benjamin Brafman met him in court, holding his client's passport for all to see before surrendering it to the judge as part of his bail.

He also handed over a check to cover the $1 million cash bond before leaving the court, with Weinstein heading off alone to be fitted for his electronic monitoring bracelet.

Feminist Develops Software to Make Sure Hollywood Scripts are “Gender Balanced”

According to The New York Times, “numerous studies have corroborated the disparity between male and female characters in films, TV shows, and ads.” Knowing that this is, of course, one of the most pressing issues in modern society, screenwriter/feminist activist Christina Hodson has come up with a new piece of screenwriting software that will do what Hollywood studios have failed to do: Make sure that your new script includes as much dialogue and action from women as it does from men. One can hear the ka-ching of the box office cash register from here.

US Congress mulls extending copyright yet again – to 144 years

The US Congress is looking to extend copyright on some sound recordings to a staggering 144 years – making it the twelfth time copyright rules have been extended since the 1970s.

The CLASSICS Act being debated in the Senate and House would create a new federal copyright rule for sound recordings made between 1923 and 1972 that would keep them out of the public domain until 2067.

The act is being combined with another bill – the Music Modernization Act – which is aimed at ensuring that musicians are paid for their music as we enter the digital streaming era, under the logic that it makes sense to pull together a patchwork of laws under one regime.

The upshot, however, is that recordings from the 1920s to the 1970s cannot be streamed without a license.

As Artists Pull Their Music, TIDAL Faces Millions In Damages Over Fake Streams

Norwegian songwriters, composers, and music publishers have filed a complaint against Jay-Z’s streaming music service, TIDAL. The move comes after Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN) published a damning report about the service — with the industry taking very serious note.

Dagens launched a massive, two-year investigation in conjunction with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s Center for Cyber and Information Security (CCIS). In the end, the publication found that TIDAL had massively inflated Beyoncé and Kanye West’s numbers, leading to massive payouts for both artists.

This, of course, at the expense of real, hard-working artists on the platform.

US MILITARY HAS A MEME WARFARE BRANCH

In both the sense of macro images and general memetics, the United States military is now openly exploiting these phenomena for propaganda purposes and meme warfare. I have been warning for years about the destructive nature of dependence on macro images (memes) as a communication device on the internet. It is a compulsive behavior devoid of any merit. It is a swashbuckling smorgasbord of signaling that programs its participants towards ever greater depths of reductionism. And now that they have realized we have conditioned and dumbed ourselves down enough by it, the military wants to weaponize it against us.

Polanski threatens to sue Oscars body after expulsion

Film director Roman Polanski is threatening to sue the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences after it voted to expel him from its ranks, arguing that the move was illegal and demanding a fair hearing.

In a letter sent to the academy this week, a copy of which was obtained by AFP, Polanski’s attorney Harland Braun said the body that hands out the Oscars had failed to follow proper procedure in deciding to expel his client without a hearing, as required by law.

“We are not here contesting the merits of the expulsion decision, but rather your organization’s blatant disregard of its own Standards of Conduct in, as well its violations of the standards required by California Corporations Code, Section 7341,” California-based Braun wrote in the letter sent on Tuesday.

Donald Trump angers Scots after luxury golf resort bans Irn-Bru

Trump has really done it now. He has banned the Scots #1 soft drink from his Scottish resort and golf course. Boy is he in big trouble now!
Where is William Wallace when you need him. Trump can kill them,attack their country,sanction them,but the Scots will never give up their Irn Bru!

It is the best-selling soft drink in Scotland, often referred to as the country's "other national drink," so it should perhaps come as no surprise that the banning of Irn-Bru from a luxury golf resort owned by Donald Trump has caused many Scots to see, erm, orange.
