    The Aspen Times ^ | February 19, 2017 | Glenn K. Beaton
    In the movie “Thelma and Louise,” a bullied Arkansas housewife and a harried waitress ditch their mundane lives for a road trip in their 1966 Thunderbird convertible. It doesn’t end well. In fact, it doesn’t even start well. Thelma, played by Gina Davis, gets drunk and is sexually assaulted. Louise, played by Susan Sarandon, rescues her. But then the assaulter insults them, so Louise shoots and kills him. Their road trip turns into a getaway. They figure they’ll escape to Mexico, but Louise won’t travel through Texas because she’d once been raped there. They loop north to Arizona by way...

    CNN president Jeff Zucker admitted that “having the President of the United States impugn our integrity at every opportunity has battered the psyches of many of our network’s employees. We are the ones who determine the facts. We are the ones who impugn the integrity of those who don’t advance the progressive agenda. Trump’s rejection of our traditional role is a reversal that has hit us hard.” “Our morale since that black day in November has been in the dumpster,” Zucker observed. “But we are turning it around. Thanks to a suggestion emailed to us by a viewer, we have...

    Thursday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough urged Donald Trump to realize that “the press always wins” in fights withpoliticians. In the same hour, Scarborough criticized an editorial in The Wall Street Journal for not focusing on, what he considered to be, the most important points following former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation. Scarborough huffed, “Donald Trump has tried to delegitimize the courts…Don't screw with federal judges it never turns out well for you. And the courts won that round. He is trying to delegitimize the press the press has risen up over the past couple of weeks. And...

    Nothing conveys anti-Trump angst better than a “Not My President” candy bar in a VIP gift bag at the Academy Awards! . . . Let Hollywood keep funding children’s books portraying Trump as Hitler and promoting “Not My President” candy bars while the media mercilessly attacks Trump, and the Soros-funded protests continue. But remember, Americans are increasingly more hopeful under “our president” then they were under “your president.”

    Following President Donald Trump‘s press conference on Thursday, in which he referred to reports of his campaign’s contact with Russia as — you guessed it — “fake news,” Shepard Smith delivered a scathing response. The Fox News anchor — one of the few voices at the conservative network willing to take Trump to task — began by defending rival CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose attempts to ask Trump about the recent White House leaks turned into 10 minutes of the president attacking him, as well as the entire news organization. “He’s an accomplished reporter — a guy I’ve never met,...

    On Fox News Channel's 'Special Report' panel, RCP co-founder Tom Bevan responded to Donald Trump's attack on the media today. "The public doesn't believe you people anymore," Trump said to the White House press corps. Bevan warned the media that the public is tuning them out because they were in a state of constant outrage. "The problem we're having, to the earlier point about apolocalyptic language, is that if everything is a scandal, nothing is," he explained. "If every cabinet nominee has horns, none of them do. The public is tuning it out." TOM BEVAN: Media reputation, trust, is at...

    Chuck Todd and the other journalists at NBC are openly fuming that Donald Trump continues to call out the biased coverage of his administration. During Thursday’s press conference, an angry Todd tweeted, “This not a laughing matter. I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American.” He later whined, “Press bashing may feel good to folks but when it's done by people in power, it's corrosive. Take off your partisan hats for a second.” During live coverage, Lester Holt chided, “It was contentious. It was ugly at moments and we haven't seen anything like it.”

    To hear President Trump tell it, he "inherited a mess" and has replaced it with "a fine-tuned machine." That's not what it looked or sounded like inside the East Room of the White House on Thursday during a rambling, defensive and at times angry performance by the leader of the free world. In one of the wildest presidential press conferences on record, Trump lashed out at the media, Hillary Clinton, the intelligence community, judges and Democrats — among many others. It was a spectacle for the ages — one that his most loyal supporters probably loved, but which political insiders...

    Sad! I love this story. I don’t believe Tom Arnold (The Stupids, Golf Punks) for a second, but I love it. In the grand tradition of Fox Mulder, “I want to believe” that it happened. The idea that Hillary Clinton had a ‘Hitler in the bunker’ moment where she realized all was lost, and her last, great, hope was a desperate phone call to a possibly lying Tom Arnold? That’s a story so juicy and delicious that Mayor Bloomberg would have wanted it banned from New York restaurants.

For the upcoming movie of John Wick: Chapter 2, actor Keanu Reeves beefed up his training from Taran Butler of Taran Tactical Training. Keanu puts in some trigger time in a fast pace fashion. He dedicated himself to three times a week of practical gunfighting shooting similar to what you see in 3 Gun Nation. Perfection at its finest, for...

Silverman has been an active supporter of the “Resistance,” or “Resist” movement, which uses social media to rail against President Trump and his political policies. “WAKE UP & JOIN THE RESISTANCE. ONCE THE MILITARY IS W US FASCISTS GET OVERTHROWN. MAD KING & HIS HANDLERS GO BYE BYE,” Silverman wrote on Twitter. She would later walk back that statement, saying “FEAR can motivate even peacenik snowflakes 2 incite violence & last night I felt it hard.” Shortly after the...

    For the first time, a Super Bowl needed overtime, and for the fifth time, the New England Patriots are Super Bowl champions. This time, it took the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history to do it, defeating the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 at NRG Stadium in Houston in Super Bowl LI. Atlanta had a 28-3 lead midway through the third quarter. But a costly Atlanta fumble by quarterback Matt Ryan with 8:31 left in the fourth quarter helped set up the Patriots to come all the way back. It was the first time the Falcons had turned the ball over in...

    Milo is a troll. This is not just my interpretation of him, he calls himself a troll. And, like all trolls, his goal is to make others angry with his words. Like all trolls, he “feeds” off of negative energy. Every time the left reacts to him negatively (or becomes triggered as Milo would say) he wins. The left is feeding the troll, and you should never feed the trolls. He wins especially when “the left” (speaking generally here) reacts with violence like it did during his scheduled appearance at UC Berkeley. Milo likes to paint liberals, specifically college students...

Everyone laughed at Hillary’s rare attempt at humor about her shocking presidential defeat. But back as what? Are the rumors true that she is considering a run for mayor of New York City? Is she interested in becoming the president of a university, a foundation, or a think tank? As it turns out, according to a close Clinton...

    A bogus dossier alleging that Donald Trump paid Russian prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed in Moscow has not had the impact that Trump’s enemies had hoped. The scheme hatched by CNN came unraveled when the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper denied that the salacious document was prepared by any member of the U.S. Intelligence Community. Despite the lack of any evidence to support the mystery dossier’s claims, CNN went public with “news of” the “existence” of such a report hoping to insinuate enough dirt to damage the incoming administration while preserving its “journalistic integrity” by not actually...

    Comedian/actor Rosie O'Donnell urged President Obama to order military rule "to prevent the inevitable tyranny Donald Trump will impose on America." O'Donnell's panic takes her long-running public feud with Trump over the edge into total madness. "A person who has shown no respect for me or the other members of the entertainment world has no business being the president of our country," she argued. "Sane Americans revere us for all we do to entertain and educate them. That Donald Trump doesn't is a slap-in-the-face to all the fans who pay to see us perform. He has insulted us all and,...

    Dick Gautier, who starred on Broadway in the original production of Bye, Bye Birdie and then famously played Hymie the Robot on the sitcom Get Smart, has died. He was 85. Gautier died Friday night at an assisted living facility in Arcadia, Calif., after a long illness, his daughter Denise told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Nicole Kidman may be a mom of four, but she says she actually always envisioned herself as the matriarch of a much larger brood. In a new interview with BBC 2’s Victoria Derbyshire, the Lion star revealed, “I wish I’d had more children.” The actress is mom to Isabella, 24, and Connor, 21, with ex-husband Tom Cruise, and Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith Margaret, 6, with husband Keith Urban. “I would have liked probably two or three more children,” Kidman, 49, says, adding, “I love, love children. I love raising children … they make me feel good and I love...

    Comedian Patton Oswalt has made no secret of his intense disdain toward President-elect Donald Trump, but the actor was beside himself during Trump’s press conference on Wednesday. In what appeared to be a complete meltdown on social media, Oswalt implied in a series of tweets that the nation would crumble under a Trump presidency. “Go be with your families,” Oswalt wrote on Twitter. “Hoard food.” He also tweeted about purchasing a gas generator and a seed vault, which is something that survivalists typically use to stock seeds for various crops. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) But Oswalt wasn’t thrilled with President Obama, either. He...

    Actors may make us laugh or cry. But they need to realize that the only words of theirs that matter are scripted With less than two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office, liberal movie and TV stars were determined to use the 74th annual Golden Globes awards ceremony on Sunday to have the last word. Tens of millions of Americans tune in to show every year for a good time, but this year they were subjected to the ravings of Meryl Streep, a crazed left-wing Hillary Clinton supporter (she spoke at the Democratic National Convention last summer)...

    I think Meryl Streep and all of Hollywood need to remember just one thing. Without we the people paying for those movie tickets, their industry will not and can not survive! If you refuse to watch, yet another, conservative bashing, congratulatory award program showcasing the self-absorbed, ultra rich in Hollywood, then you didn’t miss much by not tuning into the Golden Globes. Although it was tough to decide who was the most inappropriate self-centered idiot of the night, the “snob” award of the evening goes to Meryl Streep. It appears as Ms. Streep along with Hollywood and our government of...
