    Israel on Sunday identified 20 activist groups from around the world whose members will be banned from entering the country over their calls to boycott the Jewish state, stepping up its fight against a movement it views as a serious threat. Israel last year enacted a law that would ban any activist who "knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel." The list made public Sunday follows up on that legislation and could impact thousands of people if it is enforced. "The boycott organizations must know that the state of Israel will act against them," Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan...

    Geller Report ^ | 12/12/17 | Pamela Geller
    Muslim and left-wing politicians are urging the home secretary to refuse UK entry to Franklin Graham. The UK, once admired for its Churchillian defense of freedom in the face of bombings, bloodshed and the blitzkrieg. Today, the UK is infamous for just the opposite: stunning capitulation to the most extreme and brutal ideology on the face of the earth, sharia. While the UK welcomes the most vicious hate-filled Muslim preachers and jihad inciters onto their shores, they have banned the likes of me and are currently working to ban the righteous Franklin Graham. Stunning. The left has all but destroyed...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 11/28/17 | Joshua Caplan
    In an exclusive report, One America News says Moore’s accusers have ties to drug dealers and the Washington Post. The accuser, retired Alabama police officer Faye Gray, claims she was responsible for keeping an eye on Moore at the Gadsden Mall because he would make unwanted sexual advancements on young women. OAN says its “own research revealed no truth behind the claims against Moore at the mall.” Gray’s brother, Jimmy Wright, was arrested for distributing controlled substances in 1981. The prosecutor for the case was none other than Roy Moore. OAN reports Moore made another enemy after ruling against convicted...

    On January 4, 1968, the first Hot Wheels car rolled off a Mattel production line. It was a 1/64-scale, dark blue 1968 Camaro RS with black roof and redline tires. 15 other models would soon join the Camaro, and the lineup became known as known as the “Original Sweet 16.” The rest, as they say, is history. These tiny cars with wide wheels and low-friction axles flying around on orange tracks soon became omnipresent in the bedrooms and dens of kids around the world. Since 1968, well over four billion Hot Wheels have been built, far exceeding the production of...

    Sean Penn’s lawyers have warned the streaming service Netflix it will have “blood on their hands” if a documentary about the actor’s meeting with Mexican drug lord El Chapo is released. The Oscar-winner is said to fear for his safety over the suggestion he helped bring the infamous Mexican criminal to justice by working with the American government. However Netflix is standing its ground, noting Mr Penn himself has discussed the bizarre meeting and refusing to pull the “stranger-than-fiction” story. The row centres on an audience that El Chapo granted Mr Penn and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo in October...

    An influential British theatre director has reportedly been removed from his post amid allegations he made inappropriate sexual comments to staff.

Widely regarded as one of the country's most successful theatre directors, Stafford-Clark was artist director of the Royal Court for 14 years until he left to set up Out of Joint. A stroke in 2006 left him using a walking stick and...

    A while back, someone spray-painted a swastika on a trash cart at the University of Maryland. As with so many other similar situations lately, students got extremely upset and the school did its best to respond. Also, as with so many other similar situations lately, it appears we have yet another faked hate crime. From The College Fix: You wouldn’t know it by reading news from the University of Maryland or its student newspaper, but the suspect charged in connection with a spray-painted swastika on campus is … African-American. ... So maybe that’s why currently only one news outlet notes...

    "The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar," she said. "The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes." Meryl Streep has spoken out against Harvey Weinstein, praising the women who have shared their stories of the Hollywood producer's alleged sexual assault as "heroes." Since the publication of The New York Times' report — detailing decades of allegations of Weinstein's sexual harassment and abuse, some of which resulted in paid settlements — many have called his behavior an industry secret that was widely known but never reported on the record. But the actress...
