    It was already a bad year for Hollywood – people simply aren’t buying tickets to their remakes and rehashed ideas anymore – and it just keeps getting worse. The curtain is being pulled back and exposing a permissive and enabling culture of disgusting people who’d have Caligula telling them to have some decency.While the media is covering the story at the moment, it won’t for long. This is a major scandal and it negatively impacts two industries the media is known to protect: Hollywood and Democrats. No matter how bad it gets, the press will always return to their natural...

    Last week I wrote a piece about my unwillingness to purchase the NFL product any longer. Apparently, I hit a nerve..with a sledge hammer. It is difficult to state everything that one is thinking in a short column, so this is an attempt to add some additional points and clarify some previous ones. Before I go further, I would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to everyone who read and shared the piece and even more, took the time to make a sincere comment about the topic. It is a blessing to have a platform allowing me to state...

    Hillary Clinton's visit to "The View" started with warm, long hugs, and ended with a gift. The former Democratic presidential candidate entered the stage to Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger" and "The View" co-hosts' eager greetings. Whoopi Goldberg's introduction was interrupted several times by cheers from the audience as Clinton took her seat. oy Behar expressed how shocked she was when Clinton lost the election. "I was sure you were going to win" Behar told Clinton, to which Clinton responded to a laughing crowd, "So was I." "I went into mourning" Behar said, as the screen behind her showed the liberal host...

    North Korea increases punishment for watching Chinese media The North Korean authorities have recently strengthened crackdowns and increased punishment for residents caught in possession of Chinese movies or TV series, which can now result in five years of re-education labor. The possession of Chinese media has traditionally been less serious than content from South Korea or the US. According to multiple Daily NK sources in North Korea, Group 109, the squad in charge of controlling external media, was recently dispatched nationwide from Pyongyang, including to mountainous areas, randomly searching houses and immediately arresting those found to be in possession of...
  • Secret Hitler, a Game That Simulates Fascisms Rise, Becomes a Hit

    The New York Times ^ | September 5, 2017 | Jonah Engel Bromwich
    I was house-sitting for my brother this summer when I saw something suspicious: a box in his living room emblazoned with the words Secret Hitler. On his return, I confronted him. What in Gods name is that? I asked, pointing at the box. Its a board game, he said, rolling his eyes. More specifically, Secret Hitler is a social deduction game, one that has caught on quickly since it began to ship to players last summer. Its like Mafia, or Werewolf, or other games in which players try to identify a traitor in their midst. In this version, anywhere between...
  • How The Left Gets Away With Unlawful Discrimination

    Townhall.com ^ | August 28, 2017 | Douglas MacKinnon
    In the United States of today, only liberals and the far-left are allowed to discriminate without fear of penalty and do so with a vengeance. As I have stressed in the past, human nature dictates that we tend to embrace the truth right up until the moment it reflects poorly upon us or our cause. A truth that liberals and the far-left ignore or deny is that over the course of the last four decades, they have put a strangle-hold on the three largest megaphones of our nation by one means and one means only. Discrimination. Those three megaphones being...

    A big player in the world of entertainment and digital media plans to bring 4,000 jobs and a 70-acre campus to Parker by 2020. At an Aug. 11 press conference at the state Capitol in Denver, Gov.

    Star Wars fans are about to lose their minds. As part of the anticipated Star Wars: Galaxys Edge being added to Floridas Disney World in 2019, the theme park is also getting an immersive resort based on the epic film series. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Bob Chapek told a crowd at the D23 Expo last weekend that: We are working on our most experiential concept ever, it combines a luxury resort with immersion in an authentic environment. Its unlike anything that exists today. From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story....

    First lady Melania Trump's wax doppelganger was unveiled Thursday at Spain's Museo de Cera de Madrid. The wax museum recreated Trump's look from last year's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where she took to the stage and spoke to party delegates in a rousing speech. The wax figure's debut was timed to the one-year anniversary of the convention. Trump's wax figure -- which stands next to an existing wax figure of her husband, President Donald Trump -- wears the same Roksanda dress with puffed sleeves she wore at the RNC. The wax figure also dons a pair of nude heels,...

    I assume the performers mean well. I assume they intend their concert to be an act of redemption and healing for the people of Manchester, England. But does this hurting city really need a performance featuring Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus (among others)? Is this the best way to bring healing to these open wounds?

    Don Rickles, one of the most legendary, iconic and influential comedians in history, has died. We've learned Don died Thursday morning of kidney failure at his home in Los Angeles. His wife, Barbara, was by his side. Don rose to fame in the '60s ... he got a huge boost by making regular appearances on "The Tonight Show" and "The Dean Martin Show." Rickles got Frank Sinatra's attention in Miami Beach when he performed a comedy routine, and the 2 regularly worked together throughout the years. Rickles was the best insult comic ever, and was a master at roasting celebs...

    Meanwhile, the very term entertainment celebrities so cavalierly hurl at their enemies is exactly what they are: Capitalist Pigs! Is the dirty little secret behind Hollywoods hatred of President Donald Trump that entertainment celebrities are getting richer in their unrelenting poisonous hatred of him? Courageous, up-and-coming, 25-year-old singer, Joy Villa who wore a patriotic red, white and blue gown with the words Make America Great Again and Trump at Sunday nights Grammy Awards, may have unwittingly unearthed a very interesting secret.

    "I swear to Lucifer," Lady Gaga said on the Jimmy Kimmel show. The question that has to be asked here is: Why are Conservatives putting up with Roger Goodell's offensive half time, Super Bowl entertainment when Hollyweird and the music industry got away with attempting to heap shame on President Donald Trump's inauguration? The Super Bowl arguably is the most watched entertainment event in America. But why is the public, year after year subjected to Satanic symbols, dark entertainment themes and offensive displays of female nudity at outrageous ticket prices? In a Spy Kitten video, watched by over 4 million...

    Donald Trumps victory in November was not only the most important election result of our lifetimes, but ranks as one of the most significant events in recorded history, on par with the French Revolution or the fall of the Berlin Wall. And Ill tell you why. Western society is super-saturated with leftist propaganda. Politically astute non-leftists see it everywhere and complain about it incessantly because it is ubiquitous. In fact, most of our waking hours are spent noticing, commenting upon, getting outraged by and then futilely combatting the endless, relentless leftist slant to everything in modern culture.

    Action Park's notoriety as a water park where visitors in the '80s and '90s suffered slips and more serious injuries -- some called it "Class Action Park," "Traction Park" and "Accident Park" -- is now reportedly bound for the big screen. Johnny Knoxville ("Bad Grandpa," "Jackass") is set to star in an "Action Park" movie based on the Vernon water park. He'll produce the film via his company, Dickhouse Productions, for Paramount Pictures. A Deadline report says the movie will be "in the spirit" of "Bad Grandpa," Knoxville's last collaboration with Paramount. So far, no word on any Jersey filming...

W, by Marxist crackpot Oliver Stone, was a Saturday Night Live skit with an all-star cast. The movie lost money and was quickly forgotten. The other, even more toxic production was Death of a President, released years earlier which fantasized about Bushs assassination and remained a guilty pleasure for left-wing viewers. Obama departs with a very different industry farewell. Southside With You glamorizes his first date with Michelle. And Netflix...
