The movie scene shows the girl bouncing up and down in slow motion on a pillow as if on a horse and close-ups of the girl's face.

JUDGE RULES SEX TRAFFICKING LAWSUIT AGAINST HARVEY WEINSTEIN CAN PROCEED

A Manhattan federal judge ruled Tuesday that a sex trafficking lawsuit filed against Harvey Weinstein can move forward after the disgraced movie mogul tried to get it thrown out.

British actress Kadian Noble has alleged that the movie producer assaulted her and, in her lawsuit filed in November, claimed that he violated federal sex trafficking laws when he promised her a film role if she went to his hotel room in Cannes, France, in 2014, according to Page Six.

“Plaintiff has plausibly alleged that Harvey Weinstein, knowingly and in interstate commerce, enticed and or recruited her knowing that means of force, fraud, or a combination of the two, would be employed to cause her to engage in a commercial sex act,” U.S. District Judge Robert W. Sweet said, according to Deadline.

Jimmy Buffett Endorses Open Borders Democrat in Florida Governor Race

Rocker Jimmy Buffett is leaving sleepy Margaritaville and jumping into politics, endorsing Democrat Gwen Graham in the Florida Governor’s race.
In his endorsement, Buffett says Graham has a “heart for people” as well as a “passion for the Sunshine State,” according to The Hill.
The “Cheeseburger in Paradise” singer also insisted Graham will “protect” the environment, spend more money on schools, and shore up Obamacare.

“It’s been too long since we have had a Governor for all the people. For that reason, I am supporting my friend, Democrat Gwen Graham, for governor and I encourage ya’ll to do the same,” the 71-year-old singer exclaimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Buffet is only thinking of his increase in record sales, (as his career is in the toilet). Financial benefit / increased record sales. ???? His career buried in a Time Capsule YEARS AGO. Desperate to be in the "Lime Light" again. Jimmy, get in line with Donny and Marie Osmond. "Has Been"s," who still BELIEVE they are important people. Not reality based. Stuck in their own time warp bubble.

FLASHBACK - In Joint BBC/Netflix production "Troy: Fall of a City," Achilles - described by Homer as having blond hair - will be played by an African

Oh, Zeus will be played by a black actor in the series as well...

There's an agenda folks: deconstruct white mythic heroes to nothing more than Africans.

Searching "whitewashing in film" brings back 3.75 million hits (casting white actors in non-white roles). It's a universally derided and lambasted practice.

Casting black actors in white roles?

Worthy of praise and incessant admiration.

Progress.

FLASHBACK - The Multiracial Remake of "A Christmas Story" (Complete with a Black Santa Claus) Bombs

The diverse A Christmas Story Live completely bombed, delivering terrible ratings, and absolutely bombing with viewers. In fact, it has lower audience score on RottenTomatoes.com than the universally derided A Christmas Story 2, a direct-to-dvd movie made in 2012.

Moral of the story?

Diverse remakes of beloved Christmas stories don't go over well in a country where large segments of the population now realize the America nostalgically depicted in A Christmas Story is far, far superior to the country we find ourselves strangers in today.

It should also be remembered the director of the original A Christmas Story, Bob Clark, was killed by an illegal alien in 2007.

"F*ck Hope": Michael Moore Slams Obama's Mantra As "Lazy Way Out"

Moore told the Huffington Post that "Hope is passive. Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the FBI or an adult film star will save the country. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with. It’s the lazy way out."

“We don’t need hope. We need action,” exclaimed Moore.

In case that was too subtle, Moore clarified:

Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope. Fuck despair, too. But fuck hope.

Moore tells the Post that Donald Trump is an "evil genius" who "has no intention of leaving the White House."

Capt. Picard is Back! Sir Patrick Stewart Announces Return to “Star Trek” Universe

The series Star Trek: The Next Generation ended in 1994, but Sir Patrick Stewart as the cerebral and decisive Captain Jean-Luc Picard maintained his hold over fans’ loyalty ever since, second only to the group that starred in the original show of the 1960s.

After the show went off the air, the British actor enjoyed a great deal of career success that had nothing to do with Star Trek, from continuing his stage work in major productions of The Tempest and Hamlet to playing Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series.

But now fans may feel they’ve been hit by phasers set to “stun.” Stewart said in a statement released in August 2018 that it is “an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.”

Rosie O’Donnell’s Plan to Stop President Trump – A Sing-Along

Rosie, you see, doesn’t believe Donald is a “legitimate President,” citing alleged interference by Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

“He should not be president,” she told MSNBC’s, Ari Melber. “I don’t believe he’s a legitimate president. I believe if it wasn’t for Russia he never would have won.”

How does she plan on combatting this ‘illegitimate’ President? Why … a sing-along, of course!

O’Donnell led a group of Broadway performers in a musical protest of the President on Monday night in front of the White House, a gathering that has been taking place for just over three weeks now.

The group sang “America the Beautiful” – seemingly unaware of the irony that it was America the beautiful that democratically voted President Trump into the White House – as well as a host of other show-tune favorites.

MoviePass backtracks on plan for 50% price hike just days after announcing it - but says subscribers can now only see THREE movies per month

Just days after announcing a plan to raise its subscription fee, MoviePass now says it will keep its monthly rate at $10.

The firm was hit with harsh backlash from subscribers after revealing the planned 50 percent price increase last week, which would bring the fee to $15.

While the price may stay the same, the perks will not. Moving forward, MoviePass will impose a cap of three movies per month, instead of one every day.

...

MoviePass has grown to 3 million subscribers, from about 20,000, since it slashed monthly rates nearly a year ago to $10, from as high as $50.

Because MoviePass typically pays theaters the full cost of tickets - $15 or more in big cities - a single movie can put the service in the red.

The Painted Monument to the Soviet Army in Bulgaria

The Monument to the Soviet Army is located in the King’s Garden in the heart of the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. Built in 1954, it was created as a symbol of gratitude for the Soviet Red Army for helping Bulgaria on their war efforts during the second World War. The monument depicts a soldier of the Soviet Army, surrounded by a male worker and a female peasant from Bulgaria. At the base of the monument are several bas-reliefs depicting a mishmash of scenes - soldiers in the battlefields and Bulgarian peasants at work. The entire memorial complex is surrounded by a park that has become a popular hangout for young people.

London’s Secret Nuclear Reactor

For more than 30 years, between 1962 and 1996, a nuclear reactor sat at the heart of London tantalizingly close to a busy thoroughfare and to people’s homes and public buildings. Its existence so close to the metropolis was kept a secret from the public, because to tell the truth would have been extremely controversial.

The reactor was located at the basement of King William Building at the old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. The Royal Naval College was established in 1873 and was housed in a 17th century building complex designed by the highly acclaimed English architect of the time, Sir Christopher Wren. The buildings originally housed the Greenwich Hospital—a retirement home for disabled sailors of the Royal Navy. The word “hospital” merely meant a place providing hospitality. After the hospital closed in 1869, these buildings became the Royal Naval College where navy officers were trained.

Meghan Markle 'is planning to fly to the US and reunite with her estranged father Thomas in secret within weeks' for the pair's first meeting since he missed her wedding

Meghan Markle and her father are planning to reunite in secret in the US later this month, friends of the Duchess of Sussex have claimed.

Prince Harry's wife will take a solo trip home to America to see her estranged father Thomas Markle, according to the Mirror.

The 74-year-old former lighting director is said to be 'delighted' about the potential visit from Meghan, and is 'keeping two dates free at the end of the month'.

The meeting would be the first time the former actress has seen her reclusive father in several months after he pulled out of her wedding in May, citing health concerns.

Republican congressman is still touting fake pro-Israel award from Sacha Baron Cohen

As part of his effort to trick conservative activists and lawmakers into embarrassing themselves on his Showtime series Who is America?, Sacha Baron Cohen presented a fake pro-Israel award to an array of political figures called “70 at 70.” On behalf of a non-existent Israeli outlet called “Yerushalayim Television,” Cohen’s team told its unsuspecting victims (and some more rightly skeptical marks) they were being honored for their “significant contributions to the State of Israel.” But weeks after the rouse was revealed, it appears that Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) still doesn’t realize he was duped.

Shock and Awe Celebrates Reporters Who Got It Right

It’s now conventional for corporate media pundits and centrist politicians to acknowledge that their support for the US invasion of Iraq was misguided. Most excuse their pro-war record on the grounds that there was no available alternate narrative to the Bush administration’s claim that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. How could they have known any better?

But as FAIR has long noted (Extra!, 3–4/03), this “we were all wrong” narrative doesn’t hold up. There were, in fact, a few corporate journalists who got it right when everyone else was getting it wrong.

Shock and Awe, a new film directed by Rob Reiner—of This Is Spinal Tap (1984) and A Few Good Men (1992) fame—tells the story of two of these journalists. At the center of Reiner’s proper noun–heavy docudrama are Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel, two reporters for Knight Ridder, one of the largest newspaper publishers at the time. (It’s since been absorbed by McClatchy.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Understandably, the corporate media has trashed the film. But Claire and I really liked it and I recommend you hit that pay-per-view button this weekend and see it.

A new bridge that’s opened outside of Da Nang, Vietnam — aptly named the “Golden Bridge” — has quickly staked its claim to being one of the most stunning bridges on Earth.

The Golden Bridge, which sits about 4,600 feet above sea level in the Bà Nà hills, is designed to look like it’s being held up by two massive stone hands.

The former Secretary of State is officially going Hollywood, signing a deal to executive produce a series based on the Elaine Weiss book The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote.

Clinton will be working alongside friend and mega-donor Steven Spielberg on the project, whose Amblin TV optioned the rights to the book back in March.

This news comes just one week after it was revealed that Clinton would also be appearing in the season premiere of Madam Secretary in a cameo alongside two of her predecessors, Colin Powell and Madeline Albright.

Kathy Griffin ‘Built a Wall’ on Her $10M Mansion to Block a Trump-Supporting Neighbor

Trump-hating comedienne Kathy Griffin recently admitted that she built a wall at her $10.5 million mansion to shield herself from a neighbor who supported the president after her controversial photo shoot showing her hoisting Donald Trump’s bloody severed head.

Griffin appeared in a video tour of her palatial California estate with Youtube star Shane Dawson earlier this month. At one point during the recording, Griffin admitted that she had been feuding with her neighbor, KB Homes CEO Jeffery Mezger, especially after she debuted her widely panned bloody head photos of the president.

“I have a neighbor on this side, and for some reason, ever since my Trump picture, he stands there and screams ‘Hey you fucking dike, you fucking cunt,'” Griffin said in the video.

“We kind of built, like a little… As Trump would say, we built a wall. I’m not a Trump supporter, but we built a wall,” Kathy Griffin added.

The London Wedding of Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate

Liz and Dick. Jackie and Ari. Warren and Julie. The Sixties were a decade of Super Couples — and one of Hollywood’s most talked-about twosomes was Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate.

The Polish film director (who scared the bejesus out of moviegoers with his 1968 horror masterpiece Rosemary’s Baby) and the stunning actress epitomized the decade’s swinging, go-with-the-flow vibe. Photographer Peter Evans would describe the couple as “the Douglas Fairbanks/Mary Pickford of our time … Cool, nomadic, talented, and nicely shocking.”

McCartney, 76, posted a video of his stroll across the road his band made famous on his Instagram account.

The photo for the original album was taken on August 8, 1969 outside of EMI Studios on Abbey Road. It featured McCartney and John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr crossing the now-famous road.

Sketches of Two of John Wayne Gacy’s Victims Made Public in Hopes of Finally Identifying Them

The arrest of serial killer John Wayne Gacy in 1978, followed by the discovery of more than 20 dead bodies under his ranch house in metropolitan Chicago, was one of the most sickening, heartbreaking chapters in American history. Gacy was eventually convicted of murdering 33 teenage boys and young men.

“This is the worst crime of the century,” said a deeply shaken investigator of the Gacy crimes as the bodies were being unearthed, one by one, in the documentary Crime Stories: John Wayne Gacy.

Gacy was put under surveillance after a 15-year-old boy disappeared and his parents convinced police that their son could not possibly be a runaway. The boy, Robert Piest, had said he was going to meet an adult man about a contracting job. He turned out to be local businessman, civic leader, and volunteer party clown John Wayne Gacy.

McCartney said in an interview with the BBC two years ago that the break up of the band pitched him into depression. He gave the reason for the band breaking up, saying, “The business thing split us apart,” referring to a new manager. After the Beatles

Two years after a U.S. salvage company announced finding a wrecked ship off Cape Canaveral, Florida, that had three bronze cannons — each worth more than $1 million — and beautiful marble monuments, a Florida judge has ruled that the submerged wreck and its artifacts are the exclusive property of the nation that built the ship and set it to sea in the 16th century: France.

The ship is believed to be one of a fleet of French ships, led by the explorer Jean Ribault, which sailed to the New World to form colonies in America in 1562 and 1565.

The Florida marine salvage company Global Marine Enterprises (GME) that located the wreck did not, of course, want to lose the rights to it, and argued that the identity of the ship couldn’t definitively be established.

Young Female Wal-Mart Manager "TRIGGERED" And Flees To "Safe Space" After Customer Complains About Illegal Overcharge

This incident was so stupid, preposterous and insane that I wish this story was made up, but unfortunately, it is true. You see, this is the kind of mental and societal insanity that has infested the minds of many young people. It has surpassed the social-media and political realm and "snowflakes" across America are "triggered" by almost anything, even something as mundane and benign as a retail pricing /consumer issue. Thus, Wal-Mart "managers" who are "triggered" by their "feelings" are encouraged to "#walkaway" and seek their "safe space," perhaps in the ice cream or pillow isle. This is simply amazing stuff. I think I'll shop somewhere else.

A photo of a gleeful-looking Poodle on a Virgin Train that was posted on Twitter has melted hearts and outraged passengers in equal measure.

The dog was sitting upright on a carriage on a Virgin Trains service when it was photographed by a fellow passenger.

Virgin Trains then shared the image on Twitter, adding 'have you ever seen a passenger so happy' to their post.

However, the dog's owner and Virgin Train were hit by criticism on Twitter for allowing the animal to sit on a 'human seat'.

Light-footed lemurs dance in the sands of Madagascar

These nimble lemurs aren't hopping mad – they're just in the mood for dancing at a private wildlife reserve in southern Madagascar.

The striking-looking Verreaux’s sifaka, also known as white sifaka because of their thick, mostly white silky fur, were captured in a series of stunning photos taken at the Berenty Reserve.

The site, founded in 1936 by Henry and Alain de Heaulme on land beside the Mandrare River, is considered one of the best locations to see confident ringtail and sifaka lemurs at close range.

Since becoming a tourist destination during the 1980s, it has attracted photographers and television crews, including those filming for various BBC wildlife series presented by David Attenborough.

The tree-dwelling lemurs of the Madagascan forests live and forage for food in small groups of five, eating almost any plant parts that are above ground.

After Ava Gardner swam naked in Hemingway’s pool he ordered for the water never to be drained of it

With alluring green eyes and sensual lips, Ava Gardner was the femme fatale of the 1940s and ’50s.

As soon as she stepped into Hollywood, Mickey Rooney fell in love with her, and Gardner became the first of his seven wives. They were divorced nine months later. Her infamous relationship with Frank Sinatra began when the two first met in 1943, though it didn’t heat up until 1949. After a prolonged wild affair, Sinatra’s wife, Nancy, finally agreed to a divorce and he and Gardner married in 1951.

Gardner wasn’t just beautiful, but also elegant and graceful, confident, and aware of the effect she caused everywhere she went. All eyes were on her, and she enjoyed it. Besides the three marriages to Rooney, Sinatra, and Artie Shaw, Gardner’s life was full of tumultuous romances and affairs. She simply lived her life on her own terms, and that was it.

PICTURED: Hillary and Bill's intimate dinner with Harvey Weinstein weeks after her election loss - showing just how close the Clintons were to the 'serial rapist' movie mogul

Photos of Hillary Clinton having dinner with longtime pal Harvey Weinstein weeks after her election loss have emerged.

The Clintons were reported to have dined with the disgraced film producer, his wife Georgina Chapman and lawyer David Boies at Rao's in Harlem, five weeks after Trump was elected president.

Details of their dinner were revealed in a New York Time's article on Weinstein last year, two months after he was accused of sexually assaulting multiple women in a damning exposé.

Clinton and Weinstein were in talks to create a TV documentary about her failed campaign until allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against him.

Johnny Depp Leads ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Actors in Call to ‘Impeach Trump’ at Comic-Con

Johnny Depp, star of the upcoming Harry Potter film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and his panel of co-stars turned political, Saturday, calling to “impeach Trump” during the film’s discussion panel at this year’s Comic-Con.

Fans were thrilled when Depp emerged from behind the curtains in full Gellert Grindelwald costume, a shock of spiky blond hair and all, to introduce the trailer for the film, according to Entertainment Weekly.

But some fans in the audience at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con were soured when the panel launched into an anti-Trump tirade.

During the question-and-answer period, the cast on stage was asked what they would do if they had magic in real life. Beasts co-star Zoe Kravitz (who plays Leta Lestrange) quickly piped up and said she would “impeach Trump.” The remark met with some cheers, but not everyone was happy with the diversion into politics.

Disney Fires ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Director James Gunn

The Walt Disney Co. has fired director James Gunn from helming the third film in the blockbuster $1.6 billion Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The move follows the discovery and circulation of several provocative tweets Gunn posted to Twitter that date back as far as 2008.

The decade-old tweets, which made jokes about topics such as pedophilia and rape, were unearthed on Thursday by conservative website The Daily Caller, which notes that Gunn is an outspoken critic of President Trump. In the wake of the report, conservative personalities began tweeting to followers to confront Gunn at Comic-Con International, which is currently underway in San Diego, CA. Gunn had been expected to attend SDCC on Friday to participate in Sony’s Hall H presentation in support of an as-yet unknown project, but his appearance was abruptly pulled.

With one hour’s notice, photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White caught the next plane to Louisville. She photographed the city from makeshift rafts, recording one of the largest natural disasters in American history which claimed close to 400 lives and left roughly one million people homeless across five states in the winter of that terrible year.

Simon, the cat crusader who served aboard HMS Amethyst, received three medals after being wounded

Cats are intelligent and adaptive predators with a strong natural instinct for hunting and eliminating rodents. Because of this, they have been used on numerous ships across the world as killers of rats, mice, and various other disease-ridden pests.

The concept of a “ship’s cat” has been around since ancient times; aside from being hailed as efficient exterminators, cats have also been known to provide stress relief and a sense of companionship to sailors far away from home.

Simon, the cheeky black-and-white cat who served aboard the Royal Navy frigate HMS Amethyst, became one of the most famous ship’s cats in history after being wounded during the Yangtze Incident.

Whoopi Goldberg Reportedly Screamed at Judge Jeanine Pirro to ‘Get the F*** Out of This Building’

Following an argument on “The View,” host Whoopi Goldberg reportedly spit at and unleashed a verbal tirade against Judge Jeanine Pirro, demanding that she leave the building.

The pair had engaged in a tense exchange on the show Thursday, where Pirro was promoting her book, ‘Liars, Leakers and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.’

Discussion amongst the ladies pivoted toward the President at one point, and Pirro committed the thought crime of citing facts that show America by “every metric” is better under Donald Trump than it was under Barack Obama.

“Unemployment is lower than it’s been in fifty years,” she stated. “Minorities, Hispanics, African-Americans have jobs … the GDP under Obama was barely one, we’re going up to four.”

At that point, reality seemed to grate at Goldberg and she stepped in. The ensuing fireworks were something to behold.

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.

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.

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.
