    So another radical named Derrick Bell was a  big time pal of Obama. Who was Derrick Bell? He’s dead now, but he was a professor of Law at Harvard University. After leaving Harvard in 1992, he Bell wrote a racialist, antisemitic essay called “The Space Traders” in 1994. HBO, which currently employs misogynist “comedian” Bill Maher, decided to turn this loony essay into a documentary back in the 1990s. The essay was about space aliens coming to earth. Whites would “trade” blacks to the space aliens for gold to pay off the national debt. Bell said Jews would just stand...

    “Welcome to the world. People are garbage.” ~Tony Soprano Today, we take for granted premium cable channels and streaming services creating their own content. In the late 1990’s, this was a brand new concept, one that many people in the film and television industry had little or no faith in. HBO took a big gamble with The Sopranos — and they hit the jackpot. The show was a resounding critical success and connected deeply with viewers. It garnered and audience of around 11 million viewers an episode, including most viewers for a season premier with 22.6 Million in 2001[1]. What’s...
  • A colossal flop — fawning media can't save Chris Christie’s new book Just 2,000 copies sold

    It’s hard to recall a former politician who was showered with more free media attention than Chris Christie this month as he peddled his new book, “Republican Rescue.” Invited to appear on a carousel of shows, Christie was all-present as journalists lined up to interview him. CNN even dedicated an entire primetime hour to him, treating the in-your-face Republican as one of the most important political voices in the country. Consumers aren’t buying it. A senior publishing source with access to the industry’s BookScan tabulations tells me that “Republican Rescue” sold just 2,289 copies during its first week in stores,...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, lacing up for a possible presidential run in 2024, told "Axios on HBO" he won't back down from a fight with former President Donald Trump, taunting his longtime friend for losing the last election. "I've never walked away from an argument, no matter who stood on the other side," Christie told me during a wide-ranging interview in New Jersey. Why it matters: This is the first hand-to-hand combat of the 2024 Republican presidential race. Many Republican candidates fear crossing Trump. But Christie — who said he still considers Trump a friend, despite their falling-out...
  • ‘Disingenuous’: Bill Maher Slams Leftist Prof Sneering Parents ‘Spooked By Critical Race Theory’

    On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher fired back at leftist Vanderbilt University professor Michael Eric Dyson after Dyson claimed parents were “spooked by Critical Race Theory.” Maher retorted, “I find that a disingenuous argument because I don’t think that is what people are objecting to.” Dyson stated, “The point is parents who were spooked by Critical Race Theory, none of whom can define it, when you ask them what it is, they don’t know.” “I find that a disingenuous argument because I don’t think that is what people are objecting to, Maher responded. “They are not objecting to black history being...

    HBO star said 'what's going on in the schools' was going to be 'the issue' in future elections... Bill Maher sounded the alarm Friday night about next week's Virginia gubernatorial election, which could go to Republicans for the first time since 2009. Maher began the show's panel discussion by pointing out that Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe "should walk away with it" since resident Biden won Virginia by 10 points and McAuliffe previously served as the commonwealth's governor, 2014-2018. Instead, Maher noted, the race is "neck and neck," with GOP challenger Glenn Youngkin over an issue that Maher reminded viewers he...

    Perhaps some viewpoints WILL be changed by watching this documentary, which carries no distinct political slant and employs an old-fashioned “fly on the wall” technique, thus allowing the footage and the comments from participants on both sides to speak for itself. You can hear the sometimes-heartbreaking recollection of U.S. representatives and their staffers, journalists who were in the midst of the fray and police officers who were under attack and in some cases feared for their lives, and then hear from the insurrectionists who speak with boastful pride and zero regret about their nauseating actions that day — and while...

    Many walking near the White House Friday noticed an incongruous sign at 17th and Penn: “President Nixon campaign headquarters.” Turns out HBO’s White House Plumbers docuseries—which follows the story of the Nixon cronies behind Watergate—is filming in town and turned a portion of DC around the Eisenhower Executive Office Building into a recreation of 1972. Here’s what some people have seen over the past few days.

    A Los Angeles jury convicted Robert Durst on Friday of murdering his best friend 20 years ago in a case that took on new life after the New York real estate heir participated in a documentary that connected him to the slaying linked to his wife's 1982 disappearance. Durst, 78, was convicted of the first-degree murder of Susan Berman, who was shot at point-blank range in the back of the head in her Los Angeles home in December 2000 as she was prepared to tell police how she helped cover up his wife's killing. Berman, the daughter of a Las...

    In March 2020, HBO aired a Brian Stelter-produced documentary, "After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News," which typically focused on how a "mainstream media" dedicated to truth had to expose and defeat pro-Trump kooks and grifters, such as InfoWars, which claimed the Sandy Hook school shooting was faked. New York Times TV critic James Poniewozik celebrated Stelter, a Times alumnus, for his focus: "Its strongest animating idea is that fake news is not simply a political abstraction. It's a real offense that harms real people." It's different for pro-Obama kooks and grifters. In August and September 2021, HBO...

    Liberal comedian Bill Maher took on the woke takeover of media. On his HBO show Real Time on Friday evening, Maher welcomed former New York Magazine writer Andrew Sullivan as a guest on the show. Sullivan singled out academia as the biggest cause of the woke takeover as universities have been allegedly teaching students to think of themselves as part of racial and sexual groups instead of as individuals. Academia has not be unique to the problem however, as Sullivan was recently pushed out of New York Magazine for not toeing the woke line. “You were at New York Magazine,...

    Laila Mickelwait doesn’t disguise her ultimate ambition – to bring down one of the world’s most successful adult entertainment sites, Pornhub, which has more monthly visitors than Netflix and generates annual revenues approaching $500 million. She hasn’t succeeded yet. But, against all odds, it looks like she’s winning. This week, 70 Senators and MPs in Canada – where Pornhub is headquartered – wrote an open letter calling on police to launch a criminal investigation into its parent company, MindGeek. They were responding to evidence presented to a parliamentary committee which heard that MindGeek has “regularly made available content featuring child...

    When Warner Bros. announced that “Wonder Woman 1984” would land on the streaming service HBO Max on Christmas, the same time it debuts in theaters, many expected it to be an isolated case in response to an unprecedented pandemic. Instead, the studio will deploy a similar release strategy for the next 12 months. In a surprising break from industry standards, Warner Bros.’ entire 2021 slate — a list of films that includes “The Matrix 4,” Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” remake, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical adaptation of “In the Heights,” “Sopranos” prequel “The Many Saints of Newark” and “The Suicide Squad” — will...
  • Man Destroys 3 Statues from Sunrise [FLA] Catholic Church, Shoves 2 Down Sewer Drain

    SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man was caught by a Sunrise church’s surveillance cameras vandalizing a statue of Jesus, knocking it off its pedestal, smashing it to pieces and setting the garden where it once stood on fire. Sunrise Police said the man went on a rampage at Saint Bernard Catholic Church near North University Drive and Sunset Strip at around 1:20 a.m., Sunday. “It’s very unsettling. It’s upsetting,” Babette Heron, the church’s office manager, said. “These statues have been with St. Bernard’s for over 30 years and have a lot of sentimental value, and price-wise, we’re looking at $6,000...

    New HBO documentary depicts parents propagandizing their children in radical gender theory and robbing them of life in their natural bodies.A new HBO documentary, titled “Transhood,” is pushing the limits of what America understands as the transgender rights movement. Following four so-called transgender children, aged 4, 7, 12, and 15, the documentary’s description says it demonstrates “how the kids are challenged and transformed as they experience the complexity of their identities.” While through the lens of leftist LGBT advocacy this might sound empowering, from a rational point of view, it is far from a positive development.In a scene shared by...

    DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — Comedian John Oliver made a secret trip to Connecticut last week to help cut the ribbon on a sign naming a sewage treatment plant in his honor. Danbury’s City Council voted earlier this month to rename the sewage plant “The John Oliver Memorial Sewer Plant,” following a tongue-in-cheek battle that began with an expletive-filled rant against the city on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” in August. Mayor Mark Boughton responded to the attack by posting a video of himself at the sewage plant saying the city was going to name it after Oliver “because...

    Dismissed by some critics as a needless origin story, HBO's 'Perry Mason' reboot is exactly the type of high-minded storytelling we need today. This article contains spoilers. The man from the country has not expected such difficulties: the law should always be accessible for everyone, he thinks, but as he now looks more closely at the gatekeeper in his fur coat, his large pointed nose and his long, thin, black Tartar’s beard, he decides that it would be better to wait until he gets permission to go inside. — Franz Kafka, “Before The Law” Franz Kafka hated the draconian bureaucracies...

    Actress Jurnee Smollett, brother of hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett, says HBO’s latest racially charged drama, Lovecraft Country, is a fictional reflection of a segregation and Jim Crow-era America that black people “are still on that quest today in 2020” to overcome. “[Racism] is sometimes even more of a threat because it’s unexpected,” Jurnee Smollett said on a Television Critics Association panel discussing the HBO series, which is set in 1950s. The J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele-produced drama sees black characters face racism while battling the fictional creatures and monsters of Marc Ruff’s famous fiction novel. “It affects your livelihood...
