    Christina Bobb went in front of the Jan 6 Committee on Thursday and spent six hours answering questions about her actions on Jan 6. One key topic the Jan 6 Committee focussed on was why she tweeted out a picture of Mel Gibson on that day. Christina Bobb was interviewed on The Joe Hoft Show Friday on the Real Talk Radio Network. Christina on Thursday spent six hours in front of the Jan 6 committee. ______________________ Christina shared some of what she recalled about the interview with the Jan 6 Committee. She recalled calling their efforts an “inquisition,” and telling...
  • Film review: Faith-based Film "Father Stu" hits the emotional mark -- and an R rating - starring Mark Wahlberg and Mel Gibson

    The genre of faith-based films has grown stronger over the last ten years, but Father Stu pushes the envelope in one significant sense. Will the built-in audience for such films stand for an R-rated biopic? And will the warts-and-all depiction of the late Father Stuart Long bring in the crossover audiences that Mark Wahlberg commands?Hopefully, the answer to both questions will be yes, as Father Stu offers a moving and sometimes challenging look at faith, redemption, and family. No one gets spared from a harsh, critical look at Long’s life — not his family, his friends, his lifestyle, or even...

    A-lister Mel Gibson called Britney Spears at her lowest point and told her God would save her, reveals her closest pal. In 2008 the world watched on as pop princess Britney went through a devastating breakdown. Extreme partying, reports of prescription drug abuse and violent outbursts prompted a court to hand control of her life over to her dad Jamie. During the period of personal turmoil, a host of random names reached out to offer support, Brit's friend Sean Phillip revealed. Speaking for the first time about Britney's most troubled years, he exclusively told The Sun: "I remember Mel Gibson...
  • Mel Gibson Salutes Donald Trump At UFC 264

    Mel Gibson was very excited to see former President Donald Trump at UFC 264 late Saturday night. The “Lethal Weapon” star was enjoying the highly-anticipated fighting event when he saw the former POTUS walking through the crowd, and he fired him a salute as the crowd went wild. It’s sometimes hard to believe the reality that we’re living in is real. Imagine if I told you 20 years ago that Donald Trump would be attending an MMA event as a former president and Mel Gibson would be saluting him. Not a single person on the planet would have likely believed...

    Actor Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ,” said writer/director Mel Gibson has written a forthcoming sequel. “Mel Gibson just sent me the third picture, the third draft. It’s coming,” he told Breitbart. “It’s called ‘The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection.’ It’s going to be the biggest film in world history.”

    It was a venture born of desperation. Four months into quarantine, Yohana Agurto, an unemployed teacher in Chile, was scrolling through social media to take her mind off her dwindling savings and the four children she had to feed. Inspiration struck when she and her boyfriend came across a post with a photo of the American actor Mel Gibson. Agurto remembered she had a large stash of organic honey in the pantry. Mel sounds quite similar to the Spanish word for honey, miel. So on a whim, Agurto had a graphic designer friend sketch out a logo with a scene...

    Hutton Gibson, a Roman Catholic traditionalist and outspoken critic of the modern church who gained wide notoriety as the father of the actor Mel Gibson and for his anti-Semitic views, died on May 11 in Thousand Oaks, Calif. He was 101. His death, at Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center, was not publicized at the time. It was confirmed by a search of a California records database. Requests for information from several family members, including his son Mel, were not answered. Hutton Gibson belonged to a splinter group of Catholics who reject the reforms of the Second Vatican Council of...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly bought Mel Gibson's £12million ($15million) mansion in Malibu. The royal couple moved to California from Vancouver at the end of last month and were said to be interested in the five-bedroom home. In a now deleted Instagram post, local LA estate agent Andrea Pilot last week posted 'Big news Prince Harry & Meghan buy Mel Gibson's house.' The firm selling the property have not confirmed news of a royal purchase, but a source claimed to the Sun the property, in one of Los Angeles' glitziest enclaves, had been sold.

    VENICE, Italy—Two years ago, the Venice Film Festival hosted the world premiere of Hacksaw Ridge, a World War II drama directed by Mel Gibson. The film marked Gibson’s first turn behind the camera in a decade, since he’d drunkenly slurred “the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” pleaded guilty to battering his then-partner Oksana Grigorieva, and was caught on audio saying she was “asking” to be “raped by a pack of n****rs.” Despite never demonstrating much in the way of genuine contrition, he was treated to a prolonged standing ovation on the Lido—the opening salvo of...

    We're opening our weekend movie a little early this week, in time for Good Friday. On Saturday night we'll have another seasonal entertainment for you, but this is Mel Gibson's big blockbuster from fourteen Easters ago. Mel has spent the last decade getting a little crazier with every year that passes, and, surprisingly, there have been no attempts to follow the success of this film. But back in 2004 it was impressive not just cinematically but as an interesting business model for bypassing Hollywood: The headline on the Washington Post review summed it up: "'Passion' Is A Gory Take On...

    Jim Caviezel, who stunned the world with his portrayal of Jesus in the 2004 blockbuster “The Passion of the Christ,” is now confirming he’s on board with director Mel Gibson for a sequel, and predicts it will be “the biggest film in history.” “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” the 49-year-old actor told USA Today. “It’s great. Stay tuned.” Both Gibson and Caviezel have not said much about the story focusing on the resurrection of Christ, but the star indicated he’s encouraged by the direction the project is taking. “I won’t tell you how...

    Actor Jim Caviezel, world-famous for his portrayal of Jesus in the blockbuster 2004 movie The Passion of the Christ, has confirmed that he is joining forces with director Mel Gibson to reprise his role in a sequel about the Resurrection, now on the drawing board. “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience," said the actor in a USA Today interview. “It's great. Stay tuned.” “The Resurrection. Big subject. Oh, my God,” said Director Mel Gibson in a 2016 interview. “We’re trying to craft this in a way that’s cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it...

    The lead promoter and founder of East Coast Comicon, Cliff Galbraith, bragged on social media about banning Christian conservative actor Kevin Sorbo from the upcoming geek convention in New Jersey because of the actor’s friendship with Sean Hannity. “I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon,” organizer Galbraith wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “He’s pals with Sean Hannity. Just can’t do it.” As with video games, YA literature, and tech, the comic book and nerd culture convention circuit has become progressively left-leaning over the past few years–and East Coast Comicon is no exception. Its founder, Cliff Galbraith, advertised...

    On "Fox & Friends" this morning, reacting to the live footage of President Trump in Hanoi, I talked about the Vietnam war's domestic impact on the American psyche. It took many decades for that to change, and this Veterans Day movie pick is one of the cultural artifacts of that evolution in perception - a film about soldiering that wears its allegiance in its very title. It was released about six months after 9/11, in the spring of 2002, and in that sense is a movie about an old war seen through the lens of a new one. The best...

    Warner Brothers is currently trying its best to convince Mel Gibson to direct the sequel to its 2016 comic book blockbuster, “Suicide Squad.” The studio that is courting Gibson for a big-budget franchise film seems to confirm what should have already been known: Gibson is back. After years of Hollywood’s rejection and industry hate, Gibson clawed his way back to the A-list by continuing to work and finance his projects outside of the Hollywood system. His latest project, the faith-based “Hacksaw Ridge,” has made big waves at the box office and at various awards ceremonies since its release in November.

    America has lost a hero. Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, the legendary commander of 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam, whose bravery on the battlefield inspired the movie 'We Were Soldiers' has passed away. “He served his country with distinction and valor for over 32 years during the wars in Korea and Vietnam where he was immortalized,” the Army said in a powerful statement. Moore was 94. After being accepted to West Point in 1942, Moore served in the Korean War and commanded a heavy mortar company. He became a professor at West Point after the war, educating a young...

    Mel Gibson continues his run through awards season. The Hacksaw Ridge helmer landed an Oscar nomination for best director on Tuesday morning. The film's star Andrew Garfield also scored a best actor mention for the film about a conscientious objector in World War II [Desmond Doss], a coup for Gibson given that the actor also was being considered for the same category for his role in Martin Scorsese's Silence. The Lionsgate drama was also nominated for best picture, film editing, sound mixing and sound editing. Gibson thanked his cast and crew in a statement and said the Academy's recognition...
