  • Who On Earth Watches "The View," and Why?

    American Thinker ^ | 11/10/2019 | Patricia McCarthy
    ...The View is just CNN and MSNBC by another name. It is the television version of the NYT and the WaPo, neither of which is a reputable news provider. Like Bill Maher's show, it is only about one thing now: destroy President Trump. These Trump-deranged TV celebs do not care that Trump has managed to reduce unemployment to the lowest on record, that wages are up across the board, that ISIS has been defeated. They loathe him because he is the most successful President since Reagan on every level, despite their attempts to thwart him every step of the way....

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar was roasted on social media after claiming in a heated interview with Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday that she never wore blackface, a claim that was quickly contradicted on Twitter by the president's eldest son. "[President Trump] called some Mexicans rapists, he attacked the handicapped, he bragged about it," she said. "We heard the 'Access' tape, where he bragged about grabbing women by their genitalia." "We've all done things that we regret, I mean, if we're talking about bringing a discourse down, Joy, you've worn blackface," he responded. "No, I have not," Behar shot back....
  • Don Trump Jr. rips ABC on The View for hypocrisy over firing their own whistleblower

    Don Trump Jr. went on ABC's The View to defend his father, President Trump, and promote his new book Triggered. The hosts attacked him Thursday for publishing the name of the whistleblower, and Trump Jr. said he released it because it was already out on the Drudge Report and other news sites. He said the media was hypocritical for criticizing him because ABC had gotten their own whistleblower fired Thursday. The son of the president blasted the network for criticizing him while getting CBS to fire the person who leaked video from a host saying they spiked the Jeffrey Epstein...

Then, when the show went to commercial, Trump Jr. took to Twitter to continue the barrage. “We've all done things that we regret. Joy, you have worn blackface," Trump Jr. said at one point during the contentious segment....

    Robert Evans passed away on Saturday night at the age of 89. The Hollywood legend made his mark on the industry starting in the 1967 when he became the head of Paramount Pictures. The Godfather, Chinatown, The Godfather Part II, Barefoot in the Park, The Odd Couple, Rosemary's baby, Harold and Maude, Serpico, True Grit, The Italian Job and The Great Gatsby were just a few of the films released during his tenure. At the same time, Evans was thrust into the spotlight when his third of seven wives, Ali McGraw, left him for Steven McQueen. Evans later fell on...

    The Venice Film Festival just wrapped up in Palazzo del Cinema, Lido, Italy, and the big winners were all smiles. This is apparently considered something of a big deal because winners of this festival frequently go on to win at the Oscars, as was the case with The Shape of Water. The top prize (the Golden Lion award) went to a Joaquin Phoenix film called Joker. (This one sounds pretty good and I might even go see it.)That wasn’t the big news for me, however. The second-place winner, given the Grand Jury Prize, was a film called An Officer...
  • Imaginative and Awful, ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’ Is Typical Tarantino

    The Observer ^ | July 27th, 2019 | Rex Reed
    Rancid, preposterous and hysterically over the top in ideas and execution, “once upon a time” perfectly describes writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film. Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood is indeed another hopped-up fairy tale like every other Tarantino epic. In everything from the ghastly Reservoir Dogs to the screwy Pulp Fiction to the vastly superior Inglourious Basterds, the Tarantino oeuvre follows the same pattern: disorganized scripts that fall all over the screen like scattered newspaper clippings from the days when we still had newspapers, an over-long mixed bag of wonderful performances and strung-together scenes badly in need of tighter editing, leading...

    Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a Mexican national with active warrants on charges of raping a child and aggravated sexual abuse of a child. The illegal alien from Mexico is one of several alleged or convicted child sex offenders arrested by Border Patrol agents this week. Nogales Station agents arrested a Mexican national after he illegally crossed the border on Wednesday afternoon. The agents conducted a biometric background investigation and learned the 30-year-old man has active warrants from the Spanish Fork, Utah, Sheriff’s Office, according to information provided by Tucson Sector Border Patrol officials. The Mexican man will be...

    Well, isn’t this just special? Normally, when we hear any stories about convicted child rapist Roman Polanski, it has something to do with our continually unsuccessful efforts to extradite him from Poland or somewhere else in Europe so we can bring him back to California for sentencing and imprisonment. But this week a different sort of story was breaking in Hollywood. Due to a recent change in the rules for how France selects a nominee for best foreign film at the Oscars, the serial pedophile may be able to qualify for that honor. (Hollywood Reporter) When France announced it will...

    Variety ^ | April 19, 2019 | MATT DONNELLY and BRENT LANG
    Film director Roman Polanski is suing the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, demanding reinstatement to the storied organization after he was expelled last May. The suit, filed in the state of California, says AMPAS did not follow proper protocol in dismissing him nearly a year ago. The Academy did so “in accordance with the organization’s Standards of Conduct,” they said at the time, adding their leadership expected members to “uphold the Academy’s values of respect for human dignity.” Polanski’s suit says the Academy’s expulsion decision “is not supported by findings, and the Academy’s findings are not supported by...

    Imagine it's late 2011. The world just found out about Jerry Sandusky, former assistant Penn State football coach who would be convicted of repeatedly raping children in 2012. Penn State higher-ups, in an attempt to turn the focus of the scandal away from the school, decide to turn an annual banquet into a celebration of those fighting child rape. They call up head coach Joe Paterno. They call up President Graham Spanier. They call up athletic director Tim Curley. All of them give long, brave speeches about the evils of sexual exploitation of children resulting in rousing applause from all...

    The Polish filmmaker, still a fugitive due to a statutory rape case, will direct Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin in the film based on the Dreyfus Affair. Roman Polanski, who has spent four decades as the accused, will explore one of the most famous miscarriages of justice in his new film, J'Accuse. French producers Legende Films confirmed that Polanski, who fled the U.S. after admitting to the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl in 1977, will begin shooting on the film in Paris later this year.2018 by Scott Roxborough

    With the allegations of sexual harassment leveled against Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein floating about, we thought it might be of interest to remind TruthRevolt readers that the Hollywood mogul has strongly defended Roman Polanski, the film director who fled the country and never returned after raping a 13-year-old girl in 1977. Polanski ruined this girl’s life yet continued getting rich off of his films and has bathed in the praise of his Hollywood comrades for the last 40+ years. But in 2009, Polanski found himself in a bit of trouble in Switzerland. He was arrested on his way to accept...

    The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has voted to expel actor Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski from its membership ranks. The decision to remove Cosby and Polanski from the membership was made Tuesday, May 1 at a scheduled board meeting. The move comes a week after Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault brought against him by Andrea Constand. Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by as many as 60 women, a few of which testified at the emotional hearing. Polanski has been on the lam for 40...

    How the social justice mob decides who goes down, and who doesn't. About a year ago, I was at one of those elitist dinner parties that the talk-radio guys are always going on about, albeit in the Swiss Alps rather than inside the Beltway—how’s that for one-upmanship? It was a very agreeable gathering at the end of a practically unimprovable week, but toward the end of the evening, an unexpected (by me, anyway) guest appeared: Roman Polanski. That presented a dilemma both ethical and etiquettical. Does one meet Roman Polanski? Shake hands? Exchange pleasantries? Put on my critic’s hat and...

    Just days after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to expel Roman Polanski from its ranks, the director's attorney sent a letter to the organization Tuesday morning, arguing the move was unlawful and threatening to take legal action if Polanski is not granted a hearing. In his letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Times, Polanski's attorney, Harland Braun, said the academy had failed to follow both its own rules and California law in denying the Oscar-winning director a chance to present his own case. "We are not here contesting the merits of the expulsion...

    Following Dylan Farrow’s harrowing letter describing sexual molestation she says she suffered from father Woody Allen – her brother Moses is speaking out to defend Allen, accusing their mother Mia of poisoning them against their father. Responding to accusation first made 20 years ago that has bitterly divided the family, Moses accused Mia Farrow of turning him and Dylan against Allen as revenge for his affair with Soon-Yi. “Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” says Moses, who is estranged from Mia Farrow and remains close to Allen and Soon-Yi. “My mother drummed it into me to hate my...

    Last night, the Academy Awards had an opportunity to have a Defining Moment. Hollywood had a chance to say something powerful, but the moment was lost. You might think I'm speaking about the current military action, where we're stumblingly thumping Iraq into submission, but I'm not. Michael Moore grabbed the moment to spout something about the war, but -- whether I agree with him or not -- I found his approach to dissent tacky and ill-timed. I sincerely hope none of the parents of dead or captured American soldiers saw his petulant 'attempted rant.' (Thank god Peter O'Toole, former inveterate...
