  • Vanity: Buzz Words: "The Cake is Baked."

    Sometimes, at the card table, an experienced poker player can read an opponent's hand by means of a "tell." Some players give obvious visual clues as to whether or not they are bluffing or holding good cards. In 2012, I recall David Axelrod, a Red Diaper Baby, and faux journalist who became a political operative and campaign manager, use the phrase "The cake is baked" to describe the likely outcome of the presidential election between Obama and Romney. In 2020, several leftist activists such as George Clooney and George Conway have used the same words. I have interpreted "the cake...

The Oscar-winning celebrity received an all-star tribute during the museum’s annual film benefit, which took the form of a virtual ceremony. During his speech, Clooney addressed the toll the coronavirus has taken on people around the world before mentioning the president.

    Former President Obama and actor George Clooney will participate in a virtual conversation and fundraiser for presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign, according to two sources with knowledge of the event. The event, set to take place late Tuesday afternoon, will raise money for the Biden campaign and the Democratic National Committee with tickets starting at $250 and going all the way up to $250,000, the sources said. Obama helped raise more than $11 million for his former vice president in a highly anticipated kick off fundraiser last month. He is also expected to headline other events in the remaining...

    One of the UK’s most respected international criminal lawyers who was representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has died after being hit by a train in West Hampstead. Married father of two John Jones, QC, worked at renowned legal chambers, Doughty Street and died last Monday morning. Police say they are not treating the death as suspicious. The 48-year-old barrister has been described as “a giant in his field” by colleagues, who said that his death is “a monumental loss to the cause of international justice and human rights.” Oxford graduate Mr Jones, who took silk in 2013, specialised in extradition,...

    The date April 3rd has held a unique place in our history over the years. Theologians and astronomers will tell you that Christ was crucified on that date. On April 3rd Harry Truman signed the Marshall Plan, arguably the greatest postwar intervention in the history of man. The first portable cellphone call was made on April 3rd. Marlon Brando was born on that day. But this April 3rd will hold its own place in history. On this particular April 3rd the nation of Brunei will begin stoning and whipping to death any of its citizens that are proved to be...

    This is the holy grail. This is what is on the horizon for some actors/producers and directors that will ruin them for all time. Until two weeks ago, I would have thought the chances for anything leaking from this was zero. People kept their mouths shut before even when the feds were questioning lots of people. The thing is though, lots of those people lied to the feds. Some were granted immunity and still lied. Why? Going to jail for lying to the government gets you Martha Stewart time and a book deal. Telling the truth gets you jail for...

    The Oscar-winning actor was a recurring character on the original seasons of the ABC sitcom. Victoria Miller Roseanne fans are looking forward to seeing some familiar guest stars from seasons past — everyone from Johnny Galecki to Sandra Bernhard will return for the ABC revival — but one recurring cast member won’t be making a guest spot on the high-rated reboot of the Roseanne Barr sitcom. According to Barr herself, veteran Roseanne cast member George Clooney will not return to reprise his role as Booker Brooks on the show. Barr made her comments on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show,...

    In her latest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, Oprah Winfrey opened up about her hefty donation to the March for Our Lives movement and responded to the president’s "hate tweet" against her. Following the tragic deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla. Winfrey announced that she would be following George and Amal Clooney, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and making a $500,000 donation to support the March for Our Lives demonstration in which students “will take to the streets of Washington, D.C. to demand that their lives and safety become a priority” and that...

Clooney is an ardent supporter of civil rights in places like Sudan with the still-going Not On Our Watch (They are still giving hundreds of thousands of dollars there to protect the South Sudan). But this may signal a new political move by him by actual going to Washington DC on March 24t. Oprah Winfrey has just tweeted that she will join the Clooneys in their donation. Clooney– thanks to...

    Fox News host and reliable Donald Trump supporter Sean Hannity is all in favor of the actor George Clooney running for president in 2020, a possibility floated by The Drudge Report on Tuesday under the banner: "Clooney 2020 Vision?" (Drudge linked to an article about Clooney and his wife, Amal, donating $500,000 to a planned student march on Washington, D.C. to advocate for gun control.) "My attitude is, 'Run, George, run,'" Hannity said on his radio show on Tuesday afternoon. "If George Clooney wants to run, I'm all for it." Hannity compared Clooney to another entertainer who has been bandied...

    Nearly two decades after George Clooney left the seminal medical drama ER, the actor is making a return to the small screen — and the only catch is the one in the title. Clooney will be directing and starring in a miniseries adaptation of Catch-22 from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content. There is no network currently attached to air the miniseries. Clooney will be adapting Joseph Heller’s tragicomic 1961 World War II satirical novel Catch-22 into a six-episode miniseries and starring as Colonel Cathcart, the primary antagonist of the book, according to Variety. Based off of Heller’s own experiences in...

    George Clooney's "Suburbicon" didn’t just struggle at the box office. It sank. The film this weekend became one of Paramount Pictures' worst performing wide-releases ever, and it marked a new box office low for Clooney as a director and for star Matt Damon.

    George Clooney's "Suburbicon" notched one of the most dismal wide-release debuts in recent years on a sluggish pre-Halloween weekend where the horror sequel "Jigsaw" topped all releases despite an underperforming debut. The eighth "Saw" film landed at No. 1 with $16.3 million in North American ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. That came in below industry expectations and suggested the revived "Saw" franchise isn't connecting with audiences the way other recent horror entries have.

    DreamWorks and Universal/Comcast Corp.’s Thank You for Your Service is struggling this weekend, despite solid reviews and an alleged hunger for serious adult dramas about worthwhile subject matter. The film made $1.505 million yesterday for a likely $4.1m debut weekend. The Miles Teller drama, about a group of marines returning home from Iraq, is suffering the same fate that greeted the likes of The Lucky Ones, Lambs for Lions, Valley of Elah and Rendition a decade ago. Hollywood made a go at confronting the post-9/11 realities a decade ago, but nobody showed up. Sure, it’s easier to get audiences of...

    Get ready for horror to once again top the North American box office, while George Clooney's star-studded, dark satire Suburbicon may find little pre-Halloween love from audiences. Lionsgate's fright-fest Jigsaw — reviving the marquee Saw franchise — is the clear favorite to win the weekend with a debut of $20 million or more from 2,800 theaters, including Imax locations. Horror has been the big headline of the 2017 box office so far, led by New Line's blockbuster It.
