    Despite attempts by David Letterman to get her to bash President Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian reportedly declined to do so and instead expressed gratitude for the administration’s implementation of criminal justice sentencing reform. Trump foe Letterman interviewed Kardashian, the spouse of presidential candidate Kanye West, on a wide range of topics in the first episode of his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, which drops on October 21. The content of the show generally consists of liberal Letterman pandering to the egos of various celebrities. Kardashian famously met with Trump in the White House Oval Office in May...

    Jealous of all the attention Joe Biden is getting for being the most mentally unfit presidential candidate ever, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) went on a tirade while being interviewed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer, accusing him and his network colleagues of "always being an apologists for the Republican position." The blow-up occurred after Blitzer asked her "to look Americans in the eye and explain why you don't want to accept the president's latest stimulus offer. Other Democrats like Rep. Ro Khanna (Calif) and former presidential candidate Anrew Yang, are saying that given the harm inflicted by the shutdowns many of...

    Most Americans were under the impression that this week's presidential debate had been canceled. Then they turned on NBC and realized they were wrong. The only change, it turns out, is that the "Today" show's Savannah Guthrie was taking on the president in what the network hilariously billed as a "townhall." Twenty minutes into Guthrie's interrogation, not one audience member had asked a question. It was a stark contrast to the Joe Biden lovefest happening on ABC, where even softball questions were changed out for Nerfs. Of course, the president predicted the "townhall" would be an ambush, even tweeting beforehand:...

    I don’t think it’s unusual to say that author George Orwell’s dystopian story of 1984 is the most intriguing, thought-provoking, frightening, and influential political work of fiction to ever hit bookshelves, media, and film. I think the reason as to why this is so, is because as human history continues to advance, we see numerous elements depicted within this story, play out in our society and in our everyday reality. 1984’s Influence in Politics: Some of the terminologies used within both the book and the film are words that have seeped into our political discourse, so much so, that they...

    The governor won't allow cinemas to reopen even though indoor dining, gyms and other public-facing businesses have been allowed to resume operation. The latest release playing at a New York movie theater? The battle between exhibitors and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Frustrated exhibitors across New York are using their marquees to send a very public message to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whose administration has yet to allow cinemas to reopen. Late this week, the Regal E-Walk in New York City's Times Square installed a new message on its marquee: "48 states have reopened theaters so far. Why not New York, Gov. Cuomo?...

    The motion to have former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann's defamation lawsuit against the NY Times, Rolling Stone, ABC, & CBS dismissed was denied by the court. A previous motion by NBC was also denied. And the Washington Post has already settled the case against it by paying an undisclosed amount in damages. Lawyers for the Times called the latest ruling "out of step with modern libel laws. It has been a well-established principle that when the alleged victim is a public figure he must prove malice motivated the inaccurate media reporting and the derogatory statements made about...

If I were to address this reality to Star Wars, or Harry Potter, or even Miyazaki fandom it would raise eyebrows or outright alarm. But gather ’round the campfire and hear my tremulous words:“Prepare for a newly-sexualized version of your favorite fantasy world.”... Fact check: We can confirm Amazon Studios has hired Jennifer Ward-Lealand, a well-known New Zealand Intimacy Coordinator, for the Lord of the Rings production......

    CNN anchor John King acknowledged that "many of the business dealings of Joe Biden's son Hunter appear shady. His apparent lack of expertise in the so-called businesses in which he is engaged raises a 'red flag.' The amounts that he has been paid seem large considering how little he knows about these businesses. I've even heard him admit that he probably wouldn't have gotten these deals if his father wasn't the vice-president. Hunter's a swamp creature. Like many people, he is cashing in on his family name to make money around the world." For his part, Joe Biden claims that...

    How vile are the Never Trumpers? Take Rick Tyler, former Ted Cruz campaign aide turned such a nasty Never Trumper that it earned him a "political analyst" gig with MSNBC. After Al Sharpton on his MSNBC show this evening congratulated himself for offering prayers for Trump -- "Yes, you heard that right. Sympathy from me to this president' -- Tyler unleashed this ugly analogy blaming Trump for every single American death attributed to the coronavirus: "I appreciate your gracious tone . . . I don’t have that kind of sympathy . . . I look at this as a drunk...

    Chris Wallace, the Fox News personality that moderated the presidential debate between President Trump and former Vice-President Joe Biden, blamed Trump for the cacophony of angry voices talking over each other that took place at the event. "Granted, Mr. Biden was the first to break the rules about interrupting, but in my judgment he deserved a little leeway given his diminished mental capacity compared to Trump," Wallace contended. "And yes, I did more interrupting than either of the candidates did, but I was just trying to level the playing field by fact-checking what I considered Trump's misleading and inaccurate statements."...

    The Virginian's James Drury Discusses Life On The Popular Western The Virginian was a Western TV show that ran from 1962 to 1971.

It was set in Medicine Bow, Wyo., around the year 1898. The Shiloh ranch was named after the two-day American Civil War...

    Donna Brazile is not apologizing for leaking CNN debate questions and topics to the Hillary Clinton campaign during the Democratic primary. Her only regret, it seems, is that she got caught. “My conscience — as an activist, a strategist — is very clear,” the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee said Monday during a satellite radio interview with liberal activist and SiriusXM host Joe Madison. She added that “if I had to do it all over again, I would know a hell of a lot more about cybersecurity.” In other words, Brazile would have made sure that her improper...

    There’s good reason to see the Paramount blockbuster film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. It’s the true story of a group of six former US military private security contractors who fight with awe inspiring bravery and professionalism to save the lives of their fellow Americans during the September 11-12, 2012 terrorist attacks on the American diplomatic compound and a CIA base (known as the Annex) in Benghazi, Libya. In a battle that eventually took on the feel of a small scale Alamo — odds against them may have been higher than 10 to 1 — they steadfastly stuck...

    Left-wing Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner is declaring war on Republicans over who will replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. He has also accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of disrespecting Ginsburg by vowing to give President Trump’s nominee a floor vote in the Senate. The Princess Bride director made the fiery comments in a tweet on Saturday morning. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body isn’t even cold and Mitch McConnell is dancing on her grave,” he said. “This is war. Dems have powerful weapons. Now is the time to use them.”

    Democratic presidential candidate former Vice-President Joe Biden told CNN's Anderson Cooper and town hall viewers that "China is not our enemy. If they were they wouldn't have given my son a billion dollar deal. I'll grant you that China hasn't been a perfect global citizen. From time to time they've stolen our technology. And every deadly respiratory virus seems to emanate from there. But these are all minor flaws—mistakes and bad luck that could've happened to anyone." In a response to a potato farmer's question about why there are so many unnecessary regulations impeding her work, Biden advised the woman...

    For someone as infamous as Hanoi Jane Fonda to exploit the devastating West Coast wildfires to sell the Green New Deal (GND) is just par for the course. She’s used to pushing propaganda. Fonda joined MSNBC blowhard Joy Reid on the September 17 edition of The ReidOut. Reid shifted her fawning over Fonda’s climate activism to questioning Fonda on how to use the wildfires to get people thinking about implementing the GND. Reid asked: “How do you get from knowing what [the GND] is and talking about it in theory — even with the fires burning — to get people...

    Jerry Harris, star of Cheer on Netflix and former Joe Biden presidential campaign surrogate, has been raided by the FBI for allegedly soliciting photos and sex from minors. FBI agents executed a search warrant at Harris’ home in Naperville, Illinois, on Monday afternoon. The investigation was launched after allegations made against 21-year-old Harris by 14-year-old twin brothers. USA Today spoke to the boys, who described a pattern of harassment, both online and at cheer competitions, that started when they were 13 and Harris was 19. It continued for more than a year. “Harris is accused of asking one of the...
