  • Former Buttigieg campaign adviser called Christine Blasey Ford 'Looney Tunes' in texts to team Cuomo Buttigieg, who publicly championed the Kavanaugh accuser, was being advised by a woman who separately called Ford "the height of Me Too overreach"

    Text messages released as a part of the probe into former New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo show a former top political adviser to then-presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg sharing disparaging sentiments about Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. A text exchange uncovered by Josefa Velásquez, a senior reporter at The City, reveals that Lis Smith – a former senior adviser to Pete Buttigieg, and former girlfriend of disgraced New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer – called Blasey Ford "looney tunes," and "the height of Me Too overreach." While former presidential candidate and...

    Japanese car manufacturer Toyota has defended its decision to donate $55,000 to 37 Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 Presidential election result. Toyota donated more than any other corporate PAC to the politicians who voted against the result - and even gave more than twice as much as the second-biggest donor Cubic Corp. ... The data shows that at least 103 of the 147 members who voted against the election result received donations from corporations including Walmart and Koch Industries. But Toyota is the company who has donated far more than other businesses, with its $55,000 worth of donations...

    Nearly three-dozen corporate PACs have donated at least $5,000 to Republicans who objected to certifying the 2020 election, yet Toyota leads by a substantial margin [a WHOPPING $55,000]. Why it matters: Following Jan. 6, huge segments of corporate America rethought their political-giving programs. The new numbers suggest some large companies have decided to maintain support — even for members of Congress deeply enmeshed in the pro-Trump conspiracy theories that fueled the Capitol attack... **snip** ...What they're saying: "We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification," a Toyota...

    For 14 months, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended draconian restrictions on Americans' daily lives to combat COVID-19. The CDC made light of the hardships and economic losses the restrictions inflicted. Call the agency the "Centers for Doubletalk and Confusion." Now, evidence is emerging that the restrictions were based on flimsy science or sheer guesswork. Last week, MIT researchers showed that the CDC's six-foot social distancing rule has no basis in science. If you're indoors, your risk is the same whether an infected person is three feet away from you, or six feet away, or even 60...

    I love Looney Tunes, and I couldn't be less interested in discussing whether Pepe LePew is directly responsible for Andrew Cuomo #MeTooing his staffers or Joe Biden tweaking grade-school nipples. Even for a self-moronized suicide cult like 21st century western civilization, that's too stupid - even more stupid than, say, crediting Yosemite Sam continually shoving dynamite down his pants for our societal death wish. I miss the grand comic spirit of Looney Tunes, and the high artistry they brought to it. So screw the wokesters and let's spend our Saturday movie date with a certain anthropomorphized lagomorph and the other...

    A new report from the Hollywood Reporter confirmed this week that Warner Bros. Studios has axed the character ‘Pepé Le Pew’ from ‘Space Jam’ -an upcoming movie starring NBA superstar LeBron James. “RW blogs are mad bc I said Pepe Le Pew added to rape culture,” wrote one NY Times columnist. “Let’s see. 1. He grabs/kisses a girl/stranger, repeatedly, w/o consent and against her will. 2. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her 3. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.”“News of the character’s absence from the Warner Bros. film broke Sunday...

    Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson exclaimed in an interview with Business Insider she is “completely over the moon” that abortion rights champion Kamala Harris is now vice president. “She has really demonstrated her facility of understanding our issues but also the intersection of sexual and reproductive healthcare with issues of race, with issues of the economy, with issues of democracy and our American values,” Johnson said in the interview published Monday. “I’m completely over the moon and so excited to support her leadership and support their vision for how we transform healthcare, as well as sexual reproductive healthcare,” she...

    Ocasio-Cortez had stated on Twitter: "I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there's common ground but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out. Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren't trying o get me killed." She was assuming that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was responsible for the people who rioted and vandalized the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The riot was the basis for the House vote, without witnesses or evidence, to impeach President Trump a second time. The Houston Chronicle said that if Cruz...
  • Is Lin Wood taking crazy pills or did he just expose the Deep State’s blackmail scheme involving child rape and murder?

    Lin Wood has been making a lot of accusation against prominent politicians and leaders… and not just regarding the election. We are talking Voter Fraud, Dominion Voting Systems, Jeffrey Epstein, Sex Trafficking, Mike Pence, Chief Justice John Roberts and more. Most are calling him crazy and nothing more than a tin-foil hat conspiracy theorist… but now he claims to have video that proves his wildest accusations. What do we make of this? The accusations being made during this latest Twitter thread are so heinous and corrupt, yet would expose just how morally bankrupt those that run our nation truly are....

    His latest bombshell is either absolutely insane or the key to exposing the powers and principalities ruling this world. Attorney Lin Wood is quickly becoming the most controversial figure on the internet. His Twitter and Parler posts are both wildly popular and ridiculed. The QAnon crowd is torn between whether he’s schizophrenic or crazy like a fox. 4Chan debates about him are just as polarizing. His latest bombshell is either absolutely insane or the key to exposing the powers and principalities ruling this world. I have my own opinions about it, but for once I’m not going to express them....

    Hollywood actor and producer Rob Reiner had yet another unhinged rant against President Donald Trump, this time going so far as to compare him to Confederate leader “Jefferson Davis” in this “modern-day Civil War.” Reiner said this during a bizarre rant on MSNBC on Sunday. “Well, this election is going to come down to six or eight states, as you know, Wisconsin being one of them — key battleground state, and we have to win it. We lost it last time, and we have to win it this time,” Reiner said. “You know, Jonathan, you were talking earlier, and you’ve...

    The president of the American Psychological Association (APA), which represents psychologists in the United States, accused the United States of harboring a “racism pandemic,” and the president of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) stated, “Every institution in America is born from the blood of white supremacist ideology and capitalism—and that’s the disease,” according to the APA. Those statements were made by APA President Sandra Shullman and ABPsi President Theopia Jackson. Shulman stated: We are living in a racism pandemic, which is taking a heavy psychological toll on our African American citizens. The health consequences are dire. Racism is associated...

    Hoping someone can jog my memory... Trying to track down the specific cartoon where Bugs Bunny says "What a maroon! What an ignoranimus!" It sounds like the first few seconds of this video: There are other cartoons where Bugs uses "maroon" or "ultra-maroon," but to the best of my knowledge, this particular combo was used only once. (There's a Tasmanian Devil cartoon where Bugs calls him a maroon and then uses ignoranimus in the next sentence, but that's not this particular quote.) I have the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, but it's taking me a while to re-watch the entire...

    It’s not just the guns, almost every aspect of the cartoon series means it deserves to be canceled.“Looney Tunes” is back, this time on HBO Max, but with one major difference from the original series. In this iteration, when Elmer Fudd goes after Bugs Bunny, he won’t be armed with a rifle, but a scythe. Because if there’s one thing that doesn’t suggest a violent and bloody demise, it’s a scythe.In explaining the change, executive producer Peter Browngardt said, “We’re not doing guns. But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered...

    Grouchy Looney Tunes character Elmer Fudd will no longer be hunting wabbits using his signature single-barrel hunting rifle. Warner Bros’ reboot of the show dubbed “Looney Tunes Cartoons” that airs on HBO Max will be stripping Fudd of his gun and will instead arm him with a scythe in his pursuit of the slippery Bugs Bunny. “We’re not doing guns,” Peter Browngardt, the executive producer of the new show, told The New York Times. “But, we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.”

    In a new series based on the beloved “Looney Tunes” cartoons, the classic character Elmer Fudd will no longer carry a gun. The new series “Looney Tunes Cartoons,” which premiered last week on the streaming service HBO Max, will feature the cartoon’s characteristic violence – using sticks of dynamite, booby traps and the iconic anvils and bank safes dropped onto characters, The New York Times reported last week. However, Peter Browngardt, the series executive producer and showrunner, told the outlet, “We’re not doing guns.” “But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of...

    Dr. Deborah Birx said Saturday that Americans should especially focus on social distancing guidelines in the next two weeks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. “This is the moment to not be going to the grocery store, not going to the pharmacy, but doing everything you can to keep your family and your friends safe,” she said. Birx noted that Pennsylvania, Colorado, and the Washington, DC, metro area were starting to have an increasing number of cases. “We’re hoping and believing that if people mitigate strongly, the work that they did over the last two weeks will blunt that...

Additionally, we will be using the most contemporary technologies in an attempt to ensure the ceremony is held without incident.” Variety quotes Beverly Hills Police Lt. Robert Maycott noting that the US strike against Iran has not altered the security plan. Rather, he noted that “security is...
  • Dumb question about Looney Tunes

    06/09/2019 3:32:17 PM PDT · by MNDude · 152 replies
    When I was a kid, I loved to wake up Saturday morning to watch The Bugs Bunny Roadrunner hour. I bought the Looney Tunes golden collection which should contain most of the episodes, and it is money well spent. Those episodes never get old. But I was wondering, is there anyone here old enough to remember how they were originally broadcast back in the 40s and 50s? I doubt they had Saturday morning cartoon lineups back then. Did you have to go to the movie theaters to watch them or what?
