    Character actor Michael Shannon recently did an interview with the website Metro News about his new film that's coming out soon, but the interview is getting attention for a different reason. Shannon apparently thinks all Trump supporters should die -- especially the old ones. During the interview, the focus turned to the recent presidential election in which Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton. Shannon could not believe the outcome of the election and told Prigge that he “could use some vengeance right now.” But then, the interview turned into a mutual Trump-bashing party, during which Prigge asked Shannon, “How...

    As for many of you, last Tuesday was a very bad day for me.... Is our next president a demagogue or democrat? ...I have been involved in politics for more than 50 years, and this is certainly not the first time I've been on the losing end. It always hurts. And this one maybe hurts more than the rest — partly because we didn't really lose. Our side got more popular votes, while Trump received fewer votes than Mitt Romney or John McCain. ...The Founding Fathers provided tools to combat the demagogues they knew might come along. We merely need...

    Monday night in Austin, TX, at the screening for his film “LBJ” in an interview with FOX 7 Austin, liberal actor and director Rob Reiner said the victory of President-elect Donald Trump represents the final fight of the “Civil War.” Reiner said, “Trump is hanging on to the what I’ve said is it’s the last fight of the Civil War. It’s the last gasp and the last throws of people who are just desperately hanging on to this kind of white nationalism that existed prior to LBJ passing the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act and all of...

    THE moment in “Sudden Impact” has become legendary. Inspector “Dirty Harry” Callahan (Clint Eastwood) is witness to a robbery and calmly tells the crooks that “we’re not just gonna let you walk out of here.” With a bemused expression, the would-be thief asks, “who’s we sucka?” “Smith and Wesson…and me.” And with that, Mr Eastwood saves the day with his beloved handgun. It is a fitting scene for such an indefatigable supporter of the Second Amendment as Mr Eastwood (he has previously joked that he has “a very strict gun control policy. If there is a gun around, I want...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is an excerpt from the new book, Planes, Steak & Water: Defending Donald J. Trump by Autry J. Pruitt.It’s clear that the left’s arguments pointing out Donald Trump’s alleged sexism are purely political otherwise Bill Clinton would have been crucified as a sexist, and Hillary Clinton pilloried for attacking women who are victims. The arguments about Donald Trump being sexist are a broader part of the narrative that various news outlets attempt to create. If they can keep Republicans labeled as sexist overall, then they have achieved their goal. (After all, in many ways Trump...

    The Washington Post is unsurprisingly in love with the new Obama-puffing film about Barack and Michelle’s first date. Movie critic Ann Hornaday won the prize for the biggest gush, comparing Obama to young Abe Lincoln: Like the warm summer day it chronicles, Southside With You possesses a mellow, languorous vibe, an infectious easygoing charm that insinuates itself gently, then seductively, as the couple at its center experiences the stirrings of what might be true love. That the two young people in question are named Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson almost feels like an afterthought in Richard Tanne’s modest but enormously...

    “Every four years, celebrities and movie stars look earnestly into the camera and tell the country to ‘get out and vote.’ They tell us it’s our ‘most important civic duty,’ and they speak as if the very act of casting a ballot is more important than the outcome of the election. This strikes me as somewhat hysterical. Does anyone actually believe that Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen DeGeneres, and Ed Norton would encourage the ‘masses’ to vote, if they believed the ‘masses’ would elect Donald Trump?”

    No event of the last 30 years was more financially traumatizing than the mortgage meltdown of 2007-08. Some 7 million Americans lost their jobs, 6 million lost their homes, and countless millions more lost their life savings.
  • Great Way to Smack-Down Michael Moore [vanity]

    Michael Moore's image has been sitting on a time bomb for years now -- and David Zucker was the cunning movie producer who had planted this proverial 'bomb'. Remember the 'Naked Gun'? Or the other comedy, 'Airplane'? That's David Zucker. What many people don't know about him is that Zucker has lampooned Michael Moore and the leftist Establishment in 'An American Carole', a hard-hitting comedy that all conservatives would enjoy and take great gratification from -- at Michael Moore's expense more than anyone else.

    Some pro-abortion feminists recently denounced Hollywood for not producing TV and movie plots wherein the unborn baby is dispatched with zero remorse. It doesn't get more extremist than this. While Hollywood is without question virtually (but not entirely) unanimous in its pro-choice sentiments, even when the abortion option is selected, rarely is it selected without personal angst for the simple reason that there is angst -- unless you're devoid of a soul and a conscience. That cry for saccharine pro-abortion propaganda was satisfied on Nov. 18 by ABC's Thursday night drama "Scandal." Not only did the central character, Olivia Pope,...
  • ‘Hannibal,’ PETA Warn People Eating Turkey for Thanksgiving Are Cannibals

    PETA and Hannibal are urging Americans to go vegetarian this Thanksgiving by comparing turkey to human flesh. It used to be the joke that a Puritan (aka Pilgrim) was someone who lay awake at night worrying that someone, somewhere, was having a good time. There aren't many Puritans around these days. Instead, we have the joyless scolds at PETA, and some of their not-so-bright Hollywood pals, trying to ruin the holiday the Pilgrims originated. Just in time for Thanksgiving, creator Bryan Fuller and star Gillian Anderson of NBC's cannibal-themed show Hannibal joined forces with PETA to produce an ad against...

    It kills me to write this post. I have spent more time worshiping Beyoncé than just about any other pop star. I've spent countless hours dancing to "Grown Woman" alone in my apartment. I've been the only guy in a dance class aimed at teaching the "Single Ladies" dance, and I loved every second of it. Beyoncé has been queen in my life since the first time I watched the "Crazy In Love" video. But. Over the past few months, Beyoncé has repeatedly refused the opportunity to speak out against the legalization of discrimination against LGBT people in her hometown......
  • Tarantino: Police Brutality Is ‘Ultimately’ ‘A Problem of White Supremacy’

    Quentin Tarantino defended comments that have triggered boycotts from police unions, and argued police brutality “ultimately what I feel is a problem of white supremacy in this country” on Wednesday’s “All In with Chris Hayes” on MSNBC. Tarantino explained his statement that triggered the boycott by saying, “Well, we were at a rally that was dealing with unarmed people, mostly black and brown, who have been shot and killed, or beaten, or strangled by the police, and I was obviously referring to the people in those type of situations. I was referring to Eric Garner. I was referring to Sam...

    It's been a question discussed by liberal bloggers for years, and the creator of "Star Wars" has finally settled it once and for all: Former Vice President Dick Cheney is Emperor Palpatine, and former President George W. Bush is Darth Vader. Phew...glad that's settled.

    FULL TITLE: Jennifer Lawrence blames herself for making less money than ‘the lucky people with d---s’: ‘I failed as a negotiator’ Jennifer Lawrence says she was paid less than her male "American Hustle" co-stars because she "failed as a negotiator" — and she believes that failure may have stemmed from a deeply-ingrained female fear of assertiveness. According to the Academy Award-winner, who discovered through the 2014 Sony email hacks that she and co-star Amy Adams had made less money than “the lucky people with d---s” (Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner), her mistake was trying to avoid seeming "difficult" or "spoiled"...
