    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that wealthy donors should “starve” the Republican Party of funds until it moves in the liberal ideological direction that he, and they, desire. The Fresno Bee reports: “The people that are funding the Republican Party should turn off their financial support, because that would starve the party, and I think they would then maybe come to their senses,” Schwarzenegger told a crowd at the launch event for his centrist Republican advocacy group New Way California. “You better go and lead and tell your people around you that we’ve got to change, because that’s...

    Street artist Sabo plastered California buildings and benches with fake movie posters featuring actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and disgraced mega-producer Harvey Weinstein standing next to each other, a near-mirror image of the film art for Schwarzenegger’s 1988 comedy classic Twins. The faux film posters see the former California governor wearing a “No Fossil Fuels” pin, while Weinstein (like Danny DeVito, much shorter in stature and leaning on Schwarzenegger) dons a “No NRA” button — a nod to Weinstein’s October pledge to “channel [his] anger” at the NRA. Blaring at the bottom of the posters are the anti-sexual harassment hashtag “#MeToo,” and...

    Climate change expert Arnold Schwarzenegger recently declared that he will be suing oil companies for murder because use of their product is warming the planet. Here's a better idea: Thank the oil industry for contributing to unprecedented prosperity around the world. Speaking to Politico during the SXSW festival in Texas, Schwarzenegger said that he will be mounting a lawsuit against oil companies "for knowingly killing people all over the world." "This is no different from the smoking issue," Schwarzenegger said. "The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because...

    Former Cailfornia governor Arnold Schwarzenegger made a rare return to Sacramento last Thursday and declared that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt needed to be fired. The Los Angeles Times reported that it was Schwarzenegger’s second dig at Pruitt in less than a week (original links): “He is without any doubt the wrong person at that place,” former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said. “He does not represent the people. He only represents the special interests. He should be removed immediately.” Schwarzenegger was in Sacramento to meet with seven state Assembly Republicans who support environmental protection policies. Last month, the former...

    In the context of an administration that has pushed more radical positions on issues such as immigration and climate change, Schwarzenegger will now be stepping up his political activism once more. "Arnold is very excited for New Way," Ketchell said. Tuesday's press conference with Mayes and Republican Assemblymember Rocky Chavez from San Diego was thin on details. Mayes office was unable to publicly confirm any additional members of the new coalition and remained general when it came to its objectives. “There’s so many people in California who feel like they have no place to go,” Mayes said to reporters. "The...

    Government watchdog group Common Cause has rescinded an award scheduled to be presented tonight to Arnold Schwarzenegger following an outcry over past sexual harassment allegations made against him. The group was scheduled to honor the former California governor with the “We the People Award” for his work on gerrymandering reform at the awards dinner at LA’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. In a statement, the organization said “former Governor Schwarzenegger does not want to be a distraction to the ongoing important democracy work of Common Cause,” adding he would not be attending tonight’s event and the organization would not be giving him...

    Schwarzenegger: Let's slap a public health warning on fossil fuels Megan Rowling 5 Min Read BONN, Germany, Nov 12 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Arnold Schwarzenegger, former California governor and Hollywood actor and film producer, issued a challenge on Sunday to governments to start labelling fossil fuels with a public health warning that their use could cause illness and death. He lauded the World Health Organization (WHO) for sealing a 164-nation tobacco control pact in 2003 that led to consumers of cigarettes and cigars being alerted to the health risks of smoking, including lung cancer. A similar accord could be put...

    President Donald Trump’s decision to part ways with Steve Bannon can be understood as an effort to save his presidency after Charlottesville. It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger. ... Bannon was not just Trump’s master strategist, the man who turned a failing campaign around in August 2016 and led one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in political history. He was also the conservative spine of the administration. His infamous whiteboard in the West Wing listed the promises Trump had made to the voters,...

    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger urged people from both ends of the political spectrum to join a “crusade” to save the planet, after a Friday meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron. “It is absolutely imperative that we not make it a political issue,” he said. “This is not the right versus the left because there is no liberal air or conservative air. We all breathe the same air. There is no liberal water or conservative water; we all drink the same water,” the star of “The Terminator” movies said. …

    Arnold Schwarzenegger has four Hummers and likes nothing better than getting up at 5am to ride his Harley Davidson to the beach for breakfast. Yet "The Terminator" star insists that should not stop him being an environmental evangelist. "Saving the planet is also about technology," the former California governor told AFP, putting his foot on a chair and wagging a skull-ringed finger to make his point. Three of his Hummers run on hydrogen, vegetable oil and bio-diesel and he's hoping to put an electric engine into the fourth. "You know one day soon we are going to have hydrogen-fuelled planes....

    It's been two weeks since George H.W. Bush was discharged from a Houston hospital after being treated for a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis, and his social calendar appears to be back on track. The 41st president, 92, and former first lady Barbara Bush, 91, had lunch with Arnold Schwarzenegger, according to a photo the former California governor posted Friday to his Twitter and Instagram accounts. "Had lunch with two of the greatest Americans," Schwarzenegger tweeted, along with the photo. "President Bush & Barbara have helped me, mentored me and inspired me to enter public service." Schwarzenegger had...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger took another shot at Donald Trump in a CNN interview recently, calling the president’s remarks at February’s National Prayer Breakfast “funny.” Trump lambasted the former California governor — who took over as host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” — for sagging ratings last season. At the annual prayer breakfast, Trump slammed Schwarzenegger’s hosting stint as “a total disaster,” going on to request prayer for the show’s ratings.

    Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that Ohio Gov. John Kasich should run for President again in 2020, challenging incumbent President Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary. Schwarzenegger made the endorsement in an interview with the Los Angeles Times: “He should run in 2020, yes,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview with The Times when asked whether Kasich, whom he supported over Trump in the 2016 presidential race, should launch another presidential campaign. “Kasich is an extraordinary guy. He’s a man of substance. He’s worked in Washington, he’s worked in local government, he’s worked in statewide government. He has...

    Add another chapter to the ongoing star war between President Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger. By way of dimly-lit video shot from an urban waterfront, Schwarzenegger mocked the president’s low approval ratings via Twitter on Tuesday. The former California governor and actor was not above tossing a few barbs in the president’s direction. “Donald, the ratings are in, and you got swamped,” said Schwarzenegger, a Republican but not a Trump supporter. “Wow. Now you’re in the 30s?”

    Your Senate seat, give it to me, now! Thanks to the very bad, low, not-classy, sad ratings during his stint as host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” Arnold Schwarzenegger suddenly finds himself with a lot of free time. He has a handful of movies in the pipeline, but nothing that sounds particularly Earth-shattering in terms of box office potential. So, if the rumors are true, he’s turned his attention back to the political arena.

    Pay higher taxes. Watch Rachel Maddow. Colonoscopy. See Trump naked. These are things on the list of stuff I would rather do than have Arnold Schwarzenegger as a US Senator. It was reported today in Politico that the Former-Governor of the Golden State is being considered as a viable candidate to run for Senate for the projected-vacant seat of Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein will be 38,324 years old in 2018 (kidding, she will be 85), is expected to retire. With Trump in the White House, no democrat is looking forward to the prospect of sitting in a minority party seat in...

    Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) isn't backing away from his feud with President Trump, telling Men's Journal in an interview published Monday he wanted to "smash his face." Last month, Trump mocked the action's star ratings on "The Celebrity Apprentice," which have been well below those of the president when he hosted the NBC reality show. “I called my assistant and said, ‘I think what we really should do is request a meeting and go back to New York,’” Schwarzenegger said, pausing for emphasis. "And then we just smash his face into the table. . .” “. . .I...
