  • Putin’s Action Hero: How Steven Seagal Became the Kremlin’s Unlikeliest Envoy

    BuzzFeed News ^ | April 20, 2015 | Max Seddon, world correspondent and Rosie Gray, reporter
    The Russian president stunned Barack Obama when he proposed Steven Seagal as an intermediary between Washington and Moscow. Max Seddon and Rosie Gray tell the extraordinary story of the faded action star’s dalliances with the Kremlin. Vladimir Putin knew his relationship with the United States was nearing breaking point when he met Barack Obama in Lough Erne, a picturesque lakeside golf resort in Northern Ireland, on the sidelines of the G-8 summit in June 2013. The Russian and U.S. presidents had never gotten along. Putin spent their first meeting on the porch of his residence in Novo-Ogarevo, outside Moscow, in...

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | April 20, 2015 | Hunter Schwarz
    Fox News president Roger Ailes thinks Ted Cruz could become the Republican nominee. But he doesn't appear to think much of him. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ailes was asked whether he thought Cruz could win the the GOP nomination. His answer: Sure, it could happen. Because just about anybody could win, right? "Listen, we elected Warren G. Harding. Anybody has a chance," Ailes said. "You don't know who you're going to be running against. If the other guy falls on his rear end, you could win." Harding -- ouch. For those of us who haven't taken an...

In the 2011 Marvel film, Thor arrived in New Mexico via the Bifröst rainbow bridge wormhole, circumventing well established border and immigration controls. He is entirely undocumented. Here are my thoughts on the matter as a veteran immigration attorney.

    Houston Movie Examiner ^ | April 18 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    A Friday story in the Springfield News-Sun reported that a group of veterans and family members expressed outrage that a military cemetery in Cherokee County, Georgia was closed off so that a production company could film scenes from an upcoming Ang Lee Film, “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.” The position of the group is that turning a cemetery into a movie shooting location would heap disrespect on the honored dead. But the subject matter of the film, based on a satirical anti-Iraq War novel by Ben Fountain, may well push the envelope where it comes to disrespecting those who put...

During a Friday morning interview with the Texas Republican, Carolla approved of the presidential candidate and personally thanked him for wanting to outright abolish the Internal Revenue Service. “Thank you so much for wanting to eliminate the IRS,” Carolla began the conversation. “It’s driving me nuts.” “I think that is a powerful populist issue and today is the day when its on people’s minds,” Cruz said, reminding listeners that Wednesday was Tax Day. Carolla argued that taxes are an important issue that gets overshadowed by...

Ramos began by discussing the presidential runs of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, saying “they’re making history. They’re really making history…for our community, for the Latino community, it is huge that we have two candidates,” although he added the historical nature of their candidacies wasn’t discussed because...

    Republican businessman Donald Trump on Tuesday announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee. This step is the closest Trump has come to officially launching a White House bid, and, in a conversation with Business Insider on Wednesday, he suggested it should serve as notice to those who doubt he's seriously considering the 2016 race. He decided not to run in 2012 after a lengthy, public flirtation with the prospect. "This time, I'm very far down the line, so we'll see what happens," Trump said.

    Hillary Clinton's Sunday announcement that she will, in fact, seek the presidency in 2016 is not getting Hollywood’s universal applause, as her most fervent supporters predicted. As the first woman candidate and a partner in a political marriage that has close and long-standing ties across the entertainment industry, Clinton enjoys the support from key Hollywood fundraisers — but her backing is hardly unanimous and some of what she has is softer than it may appear because industry liberals regard her as a party centrist. “You’d be surprised by the number of people I’ve heard from who aren’t supporting her,” one...

However, on the morning of their respective presidential announcements, the “Big Three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) networks went out of their way to label Cruz a “conservative” 13 times, compared to zero conservative labels for Senator Paul this morning.The discrepancy in the “conservative” ID comes despite the two senators’ having nearly identical ratings from the American Conservative Union. Cruz has a lifetime rating of 100% whereas Paul’s ACU rating is 98.67%. Although the...

Really, it was the mirror image of the visceral way Republicans react to Hillary Clinton.

Following Cruz’s announcement, lefties comforted themselves by reassuring everyone within earshot that Cruz has no chance of winning. “It will never happen,” was the title of a post on the Talking Points Memo blog by...

    Draw your own conclusions about how much confidence you can generate about the truthfulness of the administration's responses FOX News Sunday, and its continuing attempts to actually perform live-action news gathering, is often attacked by disappointed members of the Irate Right as well as the Indignant Left by the outcomes of their various interviews of the glitterati among the members of the Washington, D.C. elites. The Irate Right should recognize that, generally when Chris Wallace interviews anyone who represents (directly or indirectly) Barack Hussein Obama, the result can be very informative. Not from the video tape, but from the transcript...

    Upon Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) announcement that he’s running for the presidency, Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski said that though she didn’t agree with a single thing Cruz believed, at least the GOP’s new crop of candidates was a vast improvement over the “clown car” of 2012. Here occasional guest Donny Deutsch disagreed: “He’s Sarah Palin,” Deutsch argued Monday morning. “He’s theater. That’s what Sarah Palin was. We love the show, okay. But when it comes time for the grown-up voting…” “Please don’t make me explain why he’s not Sarah Palin,” Brzezinski said. “I would get killed.” “I’m not saying...

    Two victories this week for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one seismic, the other minor though not insignificant. First, he won a solid re-election victory that affirmed his dire warning of the peril from a nuclear-armed Iran. Secondly, he persuaded an influential American liberal that his campaign warning that Israel's Arab citizens might swing the election against him was not a despicable, race-baiting tactic as alleged by other liberals. Netanyahu may never learn of this second vote of approval from liberal comedian Bill Maher, but it remains worth savoring for conservatives here in the U.S. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)It was heard on last...

    Geraldo Rivera told the Fox & Friends troika that Benjamin Netanyahu was a divisive and petty leader who had fractured U.S.-Israeli relations — as a certain mustachioed someone has been warning for years. “If I were President Obama, I would have sent Bibi Netanyahu a congratulatory postcard by snail mail on a form written ‘congratulations on your recent election,’” Rivera said. “It is the appropriate thing to do to someone who has absolutely insulted the American constitutional system.” “It caused a division in the U.S./Israeli relationship that has never existed before,” he continued. “And then for Bibi Netanyahu to run...

    One of the many weapons seen on AMC’s smash hit TV series “Walking Dead” is a unique pump-action shotgun called the “Ultimate Tactical Shotgun” or UTS-15. The weapon has also been spotted in video games like “Battlefield 4” and “Call of Duty: Ghosts.” The UTS-15 is built by the Turkish firearms manufacturer, UTAS-Makine. The distinctive weapon is the subject of a field test review from sharpshooter Kirsten Joy Weiss. In a 4:30 video, Weiss puts the UTS-15 through some rigorous paces while explaining the many features of the shotgun. The UTS-15 loads like many pump-action shotguns: The difference in this...

    We’ve reached peak endorsement power. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached peak campaign season with his latest endorsement—a short, sweet, and to-the-point video message from none other than Chuck Norris. Yid With Lid has the video: I watched Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, and I saw a man who loves his country with all his heart and soul. I also saw a strong leader that is absolutely crucial for the safety of the Israeli people. I have done three movies in Israel – “Delta Force” being my favorite – and I formed many friendships while there. You have...

Will show be ONE WEEK behind on episodes or ONE SEASON? (assuming these shows on cable are not available right away) Dish is not an option (she won't allow it on the roof) Will likely be getting DSL from a phone company.

    It’s very fashionable to declare or pronounce, America is in decline- using such absurd anecdotal examples as the troubles in Syria (we didn’t do anything when Assad crossed the red line), Ukraine (we did not protect the Ukraine as promised in the Budapest Memorandum) gun shootings at shopping malls, troubled economy (when was our economy not troubled?- It’s troubled according to a developed countries standards- but compared to most of the world, it’s an exemplary example of market economics- giving the highest standard of living to the most people in the world). The other standard measurement used to support the...

    In January of 2014, award-winning investigative journalist for NBC News Lisa Meyers announced she was leaving the network after thirty-three years—supposedly to work on her golf game. However, an interview this week with the Des Moines Register gave credence to the speculation that she left because network news no longer wanted to upset the White House and other politicians. […] Meyers has made similar charges in the past: months before she left NBC, Newsbusters reported about a Meyers appearance where she called the press one of Obama’s most important constituencies. …

    Americans are hungry for the truth. Six years of steady misinformation, cover-ups, scandals, lawless actions, outright lies—people need a dose of truth You grab the TV controller and settle in for a quick look at the “news”. You gravitate to the national news presentation that most fits your political leanings. Since a large majority of America is conservative, most settle on FOX. That is unless you feel like you need a break from reality and decide to have a few chuckles. Then you move on to MSNBC—but hurry before it fully implodes. The alphabet networks have always had left leaning...

    Glenn Beck today lashed out at the Ferguson protesters for, as he put it, creating a dangerous climate in which cops could actually be killed, referencing the shooting of two police officers near the Ferguson PD last night. Beck said that if he and others had “called for violence, called police racist pigs, all the names that these protesters have used and called the police, and then two of them were shot, I think we’d be in jail today.” RELATED: Fox’s Powers and Tantaros Battle over Ferguson Blame: Cops Got Shot ‘Before Obama’ He called it “despicable” how the White...

    A star has been born. Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Tuesday starred in a cameo for "Sharknado 3," the cult-classic fantasy movie series featuring vicious, airborne sharks riding deadly tornadoes from the sea. The 2012 Republican presidential candidate was spotted with a film crew outside the White House, presumably before the disaster hits Washington, D.C. "I believe they are growing in size. Congress has to take this seriously because sharknado is a real phenomenon," Bachmann said in a scene, before excusing herself for a vote on the Hill a couple of miles away. After several takes, which were filmed...
