  • Robert Redford: A race against time to undo damage caused by Trump

    CNN ^ | November 8, 2019 | Robert Redford
    Earlier this week, Donald Trump notified the United Nations of his intention to pull America out of the most significant climate effort in history, the now-famous Paris Accord. It's a decision that has shocked millions with its short-sighted foolishness. That he chose to do this on the first day he could legally do so under the UN's rules for withdrawal simply reveals his immoral dedication to isolating us from the world community by willfully ignoring the biggest, most urgent threat facing human civilization.
  • ‘Midway’ celebrates heroism with an old-fashioned approach to the epic war drama

    “Midway” is so square, so old-school and old-fashioned, it almost feels avant-garde. Ambiguity is not its goal, nor is nihilism its motivating philosophy. It aims to celebrate heroism, sacrifice, determination and grit, and if you don’t like that it really does not care. Though it’s appearing some 70 years after the epochal World War II battle it re-creates — and more than 40 years after a Hollywood film with the same name on the same subject — this “Midway,” as directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Wes Tooke, pays no attention to the notion that times have changed...
  • Pete Buttigieg raises eyebrows for eating cinnamon roll like chicken wings

    Looks like Pete Buttigieg is really pandering for the vote … in Buffalo. The South Bend mayor and presidential candidate came out with a radical new policy for eating cinnamon rolls — as he was spotted cutting one up and nibbling on the tiny pieces like they were chicken wings. The 37-year-old Democrat knew he was being photographed eating when he made his bizarre gustatory move, since the shot was taken at Ruby’s Restaurant in Decorah, Iowa, for a Thursday story about dining on the campaign trail by the Eater food blog. Buttigieg’s cinnamon roll shenanigans led some on Twitter...

    Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, expressed support for plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit seeking the release of documents they detail links between some of the September 11 hijackers and the Saudi government. Gabbard claimed Thursday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that Saudi Arabia is "undermining" American national security interests and that the U.S. government is "hiding the truth" about any potential links between Riyadh and the 2001 terror attacks. "This story that we are hearing from the families of those who were killed on 9/11 pushes this issue to the forefront," she said. "For so long, leaders in our...

Fellow actor Sam Waterston was also in the group, which included many older demonstrators. Now 81, Fonda said she plans to get arrested every Friday to advocate for urgent reduction in the use of fossil fuels. She...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is promoting a new package of left-wing economic policies, including national rent control and expanding welfare to illegal immigrants across the country, as part of a massive new proposal aiming to achieve a “just society.” The freshman lawmaker, who champions the multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal proposal to combat economic inequality and climate change, has now proposed a package of bills aimed at solving perceived economic injustice. “A just society provides a living wage, safe working conditions, and healthcare.

The referees receive the signal and march onto the field, followed by both teams and the children. The starters from each team stand on either side of the referees,...

    Insurgent Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg acknowledged at the Fox News town hall in Claremont, New Hampshire Sunday evening that he needs to do more to appeal to "black and brown" voters, even as he confidently parried a series of policy questions -- and, on several occasions, went directly after President Trump. Buttigieg argued that minority voters are "skeptical of people who seem to come out of nowhere," after moderator Chris Wallace noted that he was polling at one-percent support among nonwhite primary voters according to a recent Fox News poll. On fiscal policy, Buttigieg pushed for four distinct tax...
