Hollywood actors threaten boycott of Georgia after Kemp victory

Several Hollywood actors have called for a boycott of Georgia’s film industry after Republican Brian Kemp officially won the state’s gubernatorial contest.
?
The hashtag #boycottgeorgia began to trend after Stacey Abrams, a former Democratic state representative and romance novelist, announced Friday that she would no longerchallenge the Georgia Secretary of State’s election results. While Abrams acknowledged Kemp would be the winner of the election, she refused to call her speech a "concession" because a "concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper."

Before Kemp was certified as the official victor, actors were already threatening to boycott working in Georgia, a state with a large film industry that’s been dubbed the Hollywood of the South.

Cleveland Browns Want To Interview Conzoleeza Rice For Head Coaching Job

Just when you thought the Browns had turned the corner from league laughing stock, this became a 'thing'.

Source: ESPN

Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he was open to hiring a woman as Cleveland's next head coach, and one prominent name is on the team's wish list to interview.

The Browns would like to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for their head-coaching job, a league source tells ESPN.

If the Browns follow through on it, Rice would become the first woman to interview for an NFL head-coaching job.

Cleveland's interest in interviewing Rice comes at a time when women recently have moved into decision-making roles in men's professional sports. The San Antonio Spurs hired Becky Hammon as an assistant coach, the Buffalo Bills hired Kathryn Smith as a quality control assistant, the Oakland Raiders hired Kelsey Martinez to their strength staff, and the San Francisco 49ers hired Katie Sowers as an offensive assistant

Robert De Niro Bashes Trump Again: ‘Down With This Motherf—er!’

Robert De Niro may have been the target of the Donald Trump-supporting pipe bomb mailer, but that isn’t stopping the Oscar winner from trashing the president.

Just two days after playing Robert Mueller again on “Saturday Night Live,” De Niro zinged the commander-in-chief with more verbal zingers.

In presenting Billy Crystal with the Friars Club’s entertainment icon award on Monday night in New York City, De Niro first shouted, “F— Crystal!” as a wink to his condemnation of Trump at the Tony Awards earlier this year. “I just get so upset with that jerkoff in the White House,” he said, drawing boos from the crowd. “Boo is right! Down with this motherf—er!”

Big Guns: Hollywood Gala Raises Record $60 Million for Pro-IDF Group

The annual Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) raised a record amount for itself and the Israeli military on Thursday, less than a week after 11 Jews were massacred in a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, synagogue.

The 2018 gala raised nearly doubled what it had three years prior, which was about $32 million, Sputnik News reported at the time. In 2017, FIDF raised just $35 million.

Israeli megadonors Shelden Adelson and Haim Saban and their spouses topped the list of donors, with each pair doling out $10 million.

American pop star Pharrell Williams headlined the event, which was held in Beverly Hills, and drew in the likes of Bob Marley's son, singer Ziggy Marley, actors Ashton Kutcher, Gerard Butler, Andy Garcia and stars from the controversial Netflix-produced Israel-Palestine war thriller, "Fauda."

Homophobic slurs, threats of violence against women and ANOTHER assault: Alec Baldwin gets free pass from ABC and NBC after latest arrest, unlike Roseanne Barr and Megyn Kelly

Alec Baldwin has found himself in trouble with the law after he allegedly hit a man in the jaw on Friday during a curbside brawl - but not his employer.

ABC will air The Alec Baldwin Show on Sunday night as planned and declined to even offer up comment on Baldwin's latest arrest, for which he was booked on charges of assault and harassment.

It is a far cry from the network's decision back in May to fire Roseanne Barr for posting a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett just hours after the offense, thereby dismantling an entire cast and crew of workers.

Over at NBC there was also no comment from Saturday Night Live, who treated the incident as a throwaway punchline at the end of the cold open.

Eight days prior, on the same network, Megyn Kelly was ousted from her spot on Today following her defense of blackface.

James Cromwell: ‘There Will Be Blood in the Streets’ if Trump Isn’t Stopped

Though James Cromwell was honored at the fourth annual Carney Awards for his work as a character actor, the industry veteran has worked as a political activist his entire career.

On the red carpet at the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Calif., he candidly shared his thoughts about the current political climate.

“This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” Cromwell told Variety on Sunday night. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”

PROPAGANDA: Hollywood Attacks Russian Christians, Portrays them as Terrorists

Why demonize and dehumanize Christians in this way? Members of the Orthodox Church are not the ones who have been flying planes into buildings and going on murder sprees in grade schools. So why demonize Orthodox priests? Why depict a three-bar cross on the arm of a terrorist?

This may be Hollywood's way of jumping on the bandwagon with other left-wing liberal media sources, promoting an agenda that is biased against Christians — especially white ones. A number of these media outlets have cited dubious studies, with some of them claiming that "most terrorists in the U.S. are right wing, not Muslim."

These liberal-leaning studies tend to have major methological flaws, merely tallying the number of "attacks", instead of focusing on the number of actual human casualties. Thus a relatively minor act of vandalism gets put in the same category as a mass-murder in a public place. With such an approach, it is no wonder that their data is skewed.

Megyn Kelly’s NBC show canceled after ‘blackface’ comments

Actually, her ratings were terrible. The "Blackface" comments were just an excuse to let her go.

The younger Soros also accused Trump of indulging in an anti-Semitic trope that often places his father, a Jewish billionaire who supports liberal causes, at the center of a world-wide conspiracy.

Arnon Milchan, Israel's Oscar Winning Weapons Smuggler

Arnon Milchan is a name you may know if you are a follower of all things Hollywood and the who's who behind the scenes. More likely than not, you might simply know Milchan's Academy of Arts and Sciences award-winning body of work; The Revenant, Twelve Years a Slave, Argo and Birdman. These are among his notable productions at his Regency Enterprises film production company. Other notable productions include the highly popular Pretty Woman, Fightclub and Oliver Stone's JFK. His upcoming film, Bohemian Rhapsody, will be the life and death story of the Queen frontman Freddy Mercury.

At one time his films were outlandish in cost but feeble in profitability. In my opinion, his cinematic career is merely a cover for sinister activities and always has been.

Former Obama Speechwriters Tell Stephen Colbert To Cool It With The Blue Wave Talk

Former Obama speechwriters and hosts of “Pod Save America” told comedian Stephen Colbert to ease up on his talk of a blue wave and said Democrats could lose everything all over again.

“It’s going to be tight. It’s going to be a close race,” Jon Favreau said on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Tuesday. “It’s been like that since, you know, right after [Donald] Trump became president.”

Colbert said he’s heard talk of a “blue wave,” while Faveau and his co-hosts said the chances of a Democratic takeover have always been “50-50.”

“This has always been 50-50. And the only way we win is if everybody gets off their couch and knocks on doors and makes phone calls and you get three friends to vote,” Tommy Vietor said.

Michael Moore Actually Believes This A-list Actor Could Defeat Trump In 2020

Moore’s most recent film about President Trump, Fahrenheit 11/9, was a complete dud

Now he just says things that are preposterous by nature.

Moore believes that “beloved Americans” such as actor Tom Hanks or even former First Lady Michelle Obama would defeat Trump in 2020.

In an interview on Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan show, Moore said, “Democrats need to run a beloved American, someone people want to vote for. I’ve said for years that Oprah should run. I’ve asked Tom Hanks twice to run.”

Tom Hanks would probably never do that.

The A-list actor is considered “America’s Dad” but he probably has no desire to actually run.

The test, conducted by a renowned DNA expert, showed that only 50% of her blood comes from reptilian humanoids from space bent on destroying humanity. Many Washington insiders had claimed she was 100% reptile, but these claims are now known to be a hoax.

Outside In: The Trump administration’s plan to remake the Middle East

The only promise that is new about the promised peace plan is the way it will be forced on the Palestinians: no one has promised that the plan itself will be new. With Saudi Arabia and Egypt—the outside—brought onside with the promise of continued military aid despite their crimes against humanity and violations of international law and the Palestinians weakened by being silenced, economically crushed and stripped of any friends to help them, the United States and Israel are now free to attempt to impose a peace plan on the Palestinians.

Music industry hails passage of the Music Modernization Act

American politics may be polarized, but a new law signed by President Trump on Thursday suggests that liberals and conservatives agree on the need for a better system to compensate musicians and songwriters in the digital era.

The Music Modernization Act, co-sponsored by Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), is a response to the modern world of music streaming and satellite radio — platforms that did not exist when laws governing royalty payments to music creators and license holders were drafted decades ago.

The comprehensive music licensing bill corrects a number of pre-digital-era anachronisms. It creates a new independent entity that will license songs to companies that play music online, and then pay songwriters, including those who released hits decades ago before federal music copyrights took effect.

American Music Awards Ratings Plummet to Record Low as Entertainers Push Politics

Ratings for Tuesday night’s ABC broadcast of the American Music Awards (AMA) plummeted to an all-time low, as viewers apparently feared they’d be subjected to unwanted celebrity political preaching.

The three-hour program lost 25% of its 18-43 year-old viewers (1.8 rating/6.5 million viewers) from 2017, Variety reported Wednesday. The overall broadcast audience (2.4 rating/9.2 million viewers) suffered an even steeper decline of 29%.

“This is the latest example of an awards show seeing serious declines year-over-year. Back in September, the Emmy Awards on NBC also put up an all-time low,” Variety notes.

the Old West that westerns got absolutely wrong

There is hardly a movie genre that captivated so many for so long the way ‘Western’ did; bringing back to life some of the lost traditions of the frontier along with its ruggedness and outlaws. Americans especially loved the old west, for its gunfights, cowboys, stagecoach robberies, and clashes with Indians.

The flurry of western movie production perpetuated the American romance with the Wild West and doing so went off course with fewer facts and more fictional conjuring. Regardless of the vision of the Wild West one may have, the old west was nothing like what it has been portrayed on a cinema screen for the better part of last century. Following are some of the facts about the life on the frontier that is in sheer contrast with what we envisioned all these years.

Jamie Lee Curtis wields firearms in new ‘Halloween’ movie despite advocating for gun control

Jamie Lee Curtis’ on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control.

Jamie’s got a gun in the latest “Halloween” reboot.

In the 11th installment of the horror film series, Jamie Lee Curtis’s character, Laurie Strode, is seen wielding firearms in her quest to kill the film’s legendary villain, Michael Myers.

At one point, she shoots him as he’s standing in front of a window.

Whoops! We couldn’t access this Tweet.
But Curtis’s on-screen actions stand in contrast to her real-life persona as an advocate for gun control — one of several Hollywood actors who use firearms in their films while preaching against them away from the set.

Triggered: ‘SNL’ Star Pete Davidson Attacks ‘Mentally Ill’ Kanye West

Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson — who made headlines last December when he revealed his “Badass” Hillary Clinton tattoo — appeared on the NBC show’s “Weekend Update” segment and launched a full-on assault on Kanye West.

“So speaking strictly for myself, what Kanye said after he went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here,” Davidson said of West’s impassioned speech during the end of last week’s show, in which the Grammy-winner railed against critics of President Donald Trump, the “90 percent” liberal media, and pro-welfare state Democrats.

“He started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it,” Davidson said of West. “He wore it all week. Like, nobody told him not to wear it. I wish I bullied you. I wish I suggested that, you know, it might upset some people, like, your wife or every black person ever.”

Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon Cash Out $100MM+ In Spotify Shares

Last May, Sony cashed out 50% of its Spotify shares, earning a cool $760 million. Less than a week later, Warner Music Group revealed it had dumped 75% of its shares in the streaming music service, netting $400 million. Warner later sold all of its shares in August, earning slightly over $100 million more. Finally, Merlin cashed out 100% of its shares in Spotify, pledging to pass the sale through to its members.

They’re not the only ones. According to a new report, Spotify founders Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon have sold significant shares in the company.

A Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing obtained by Di Digital reveals Ek and Lorentzon have sold their shares for over kr 1 billion ($110 million) each in recent months. Daniel Ek, Spotify’s CEO, received the most from the recent sales, reportedly earning kr 1.2 billion ($132 million).

Smiling Bill Cosby arrives alone for his sentencing as a psychologist testifies the disgraced legend is a sexually violent predator with uncontrollable urges to have sex with young, non-consenting women who would reoffend

Bill Cosby arrived in court on Monday to start his sentencing hearing in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

The disgraced actor, 81, was not joined by his wife Camille or any other family members as he made his way into the courtroom accompanied by only his spokesperson Andrew Wyatt and publicist Ebonee Benson.

Cosby, who was declared a sexually violent predator by the state's sex-offender board, appeared to be carefree and in high spirits despite the occasion, and at one point smiled and then pointed and waved at a crowd of protesters outside the court.

Kristen Dudley, a psychologist and member of the offender board, testified Monday in court and stated that Cosby had a disorder which makes him inclined to sleep with non-consenting women.

Michael Moore’s ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Tanks at Box Office

Michael Moore’s anti-Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 tanked at the box office, according to Deadline.

Although Fahrenheit 11/9 opened this weekend on a massive number of screens, it is projected to earn a paltry $3 million.

After a decade of disappointments for the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker, even the early projections for what was supposed to be Moore’s comeback film did not look promising — a mere $6 million, but the reality is even worse: half of that.

Outside of the fact he has not had a hit since Sicko grossed a respectable $24.5 million all the way back in 2007, Fahrenheit 11/9’s humiliating opening is especially embarrassing when you consider it opened in an astonishing 1,719 theaters.

The whole idea behind Moore’s anti-Trump doc was to recapture the glory days of his Fahrenheit 9/11, which opened in the summer of 2004 in just 868 theaters to an astonishing $24 million.

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Major New Movie 'Active Measures' Brings Rabid Anti-Russianism to the Silver Screen

"The President is a puppet of Vladimir Putin!" That sums up the revelations of the blockbuster movie "Active Measures." It recently debuted at theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

You know all those movies you bought from Apple? Um, well, think different: You didn't

Remember when you decided to buy, rather than rent, that movie online? We have some bad news for you – you didn't.

Biologist Anders Gonçalves da Silva was surprised this week to find three movies he had purchased through iTunes simply disappeared one day from his library. So he contacted Apple to find out what had happened.

And Apple told him it no longer had the license rights for those movies so they had been removed. To which he of course responded: Ah, but I didn't rent them, I actually bought them through your "buy" option.

At which point da Silva learnt a valuable lesson about the realities of digital purchases and modern licensing rules: While he had bought the movies, what he had actually paid for was the ability to download the movie to his hard drive.

Feds investigating Weinstein’s alleged ties to Black Cube spy firm

The US Attorney’s Office in New York is looking into Harvey Weinstein‘s relationship with the private spy firm Black Cube to determine whether the disgraced producer broke federal law in his efforts to stifle sexual harassment allegations against him.

Weinstein’s attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said in a statement on Thursday that his office had met with prosecutors in an effort to convince them that the arrangement was aboveboard. Brafman argued that Weinstein was compelled to defend himself given the “reckless disregard for the truth” displayed by some of his accusers, in an apparent reference to Asia Argento.

The bill is expected to be released by the end of the month and will absolutely require companies such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter to swiftly remove any content considered terroristic from their platforms.

In March, the European Commission told such companies that they had three months to show they were removing “extremist” content more rapidly or face legislation forcing them to do so.

EU recommendations were sent out at the time regarding the speedy removal of all content including terrorist content, incitement to hatred and violence, child sexual abuse material, counterfeit products, and copyright infringement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me, in this draconian move, is the proclivity for going after sites (like this one) which are fact centric, even though those facts may not be to the EU's liking.

There's no place like home! Ruby slippers Judy Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz have been found 13 YEARS after they were stolen from a Minnesota museum

After being missing for 13 years in a case full of as many twists and turns as the movie itself, the classic pair of ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz are finally coming home.

Judy Garland's famous shoes - which were insured for $1million - were stolen from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota in August 2005.

But on Tuesday the FBI revealed that the stolen slippers have finally been recovered. No suspects have been immediately announced.

It is a Hollywood happy ending for a scandal that one private investigator who worked on the case claimed had more conspiracy theories than Area 51.

Roseanne Barr Says She’s Leaving for Israel When The Conners Premieres

While you might personally still be up in the air about your interest in the upcoming Roseanne spin-off, Roseanne Barr knows where she’ll be when The Conners drops on October 16: sunny Israel. In the latest episode of Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast, the actress outlined her plan to get the hell out of dodge when the new show arrives. “I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers,” Barr explains. “I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go … and study with any rabbi that I can ask to teach me, and it’s my great joy and privilege to be a Jewish woman.”

What’s Fact and What’s Fiction in Darkest Hour

Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour is a piece of historical fiction that undertakes a serious historical task: to present Winston Churchill and the British people’s choice to stand up to Hitler as just that … a choice. In hindsight, after eventual victory, the decision to fight against the Germans can appear a foregone conclusion. Since we all like to imagine that we personally would never fold to the Nazis, it can be hard to understand that reasonable people, most of whom had no love for Hitler, seriously considered a truce in spring 1940, during the days depicted in the film. To their eyes, fighting on after the approaching fall of France would only delay the inevitable at the cost of mass civilian slaughter. Better to come to terms now while they still had the leverage of an army and aircraft factories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I watched this film last night, and it is an excellent film. Gary Oldman did a fantastic job. However, we did wonder if certain portions of the film were historically accurate, especially the subway train ride.
