  • Barbara Streisand Allegedly Finds Gay Sex ‘Very Distasteful’

    For the second time today, an interview with The New York Times has exposed what appears to be a decades-old instance of celebrity homophobia. First, in a TimesTalks discussion, John Cameron Mitchell revealed how David Letterman refused to shake his hand after a performance of Hedwig and Angry Inch more than 15 years ago. Now, playwright Larry Kramer is charging Barbara Streisand with saying she finds gay sex “distasteful.” Kramer has been trying to get his play The Normal Heart made into a movie since it first appeared Off-Broadway in 1985. The story of one activist’s fight during the rise...

    The New American ^ | 26 October 2012 | Selwyn Duke
    When Barack Obama called Mitt Romney a bull******* in a Rolling Stone interview recently, it was reminiscent of something involving a man who truly fits that description. What I’m referring to has to do with the 1990s, an intern, and America’s increasingly interned morality. After Bill Clinton said that he didn’t consider Monica Lewinsky’s services to be sex as he “understood it,” many observers pointed out that his lawyering of lasciviousness was influencing the young. “Hey, even the president, a Rhodes Scholar, says it isn’t sex!” It’s what you call trickle-down decadence. And now what Clinton did for intimate relations,...

Oh, and she’s also a “heroine” to Planned Parenthood, natch. Congrats, Debbie. Now for your first lesson on messaging. Repeat after me: “Republicans want to kill grandma.” She would be the first woman to serve as the permanent head of the committee in a presidential election year, party officials said. At least two women have served short stints in the position,...

    Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg were no-shows at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser.....billed as co-hosts w/ Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. Notables included Judd Apatow, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Reps. Howard Berman, Brad Sherman, Judy Chu and Laura Richardson. The price to be a co-host was $30,400 per couple, which included a photo with Obama — though POTUS said photo ops weren't the point of the evening. "I hope you understand why we're here tonight,'' said Obama. "It's not to take a picture with the president. We're here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."

    I've always made the analogy that global warming is like aliens; it's this big threat no one can see, but it's supposedly right there above our heads, waiting to kill us if we don't give the government more power to fight it. Now, it seems that the government might actually use the threat of aliens to gain more control, and to head toward a single world government. I know, I know, it's far fetched, and likely untrue. But, that said, it doesn't hurt to think about. Does it? An official announcement by the Obama administration disclosing the reality of extraterrestrial...

    This weekend's Kennedy Center Honors marked the last time President Bush and first lady Laura Bush sat alongside the honorees as they watched the tributes unfold on the stage of the institution's opera house last night. Roger Daltrey, who was feted along with a fellow member of the rock group the Who, said the award "means so much." The outgoing president hosted not only one of his wife's favorite musicians - it was the first time a first lady took the stage in the event's 31-year history - but also one of his biggest Hollywood detractors. *snip* This year's honorees...

"It will be me," Clinton tells Katie Couric in an interview to air Monday on the "CBS Evening News With Katie Couric." The broadcast airs at 6:30 p.m. on WKMG-Channel 6. Couric also asked if Clinton is concerned that Oprah Winfrey could boost Sen. Barack Obama by campaigning for him in three key states. "No, at the end of the day," Clinton says. "I'm proud to have my husband support me ... with his knowledge, experience and incredible ability to vouch for me."

After clinging on for the entire 1300-kilometer (808-mile) flight to Vnukova Airport, the boy, named Andrei, collapsed onto the tarmac. His arms and legs were so severely frozen that rescuers were at first unable to remove his coat and shoes, the radio station said. The airport did not confirm the report.

    Malibu -- Barbra Streisand likes what she sees in the Democratic race for the presidency, so much so that she's giving money to three candidates. Streisand, a friend and supporter of former President Clinton, has previously made contributions to the successful U.S. Senate campaigns of Clinton's wife, Hillary. This time, the actress said in a statement released Monday, she's giving money not only to the New York senator but to former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina and Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. "I'm very excited about the strength of the Democratic field for the 2008 presidential election, and I'm...

On Wednesday, the company unveiled a new advertising campaign for the 2006-07 season that centers around the message that snow — and skiing — will disappear around 2100 if humans don’t take drastic action to slow global warming. Three full-page ads, which show a melting snowflake imposed over Highland Bowl, will run in SKI and Outside magazines in the next few months. One ad portrays a “certificate of death” for snow....

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said he asked a ministerial committee to hold talks with the U.S. military to set ground rules for raids and detentions. The order from Lt. Gen. Peter Chiarelli, the commander of Multinational Corps Iraq, said the training would emphasize "professional military values and the importance of disciplined, professional conduct in combat" as well as Iraqi cultural expectations.

    Conventional wisdom in political circles is that President Bush has lost the support of the “Republican base” because of his handling of several key issues, especially immigration and government spending. Many political pundits are calling on him to court the base or risk losing control of Congress. I won’t deny the polling evidence, yet my own reading of the numbers is not as pessimistic as that of many GOP insiders. And I have a wholly different perspective on what Bush should do to improve the party’s electoral outlook. While some Republicans are recommending that the president do everything possible to...

    Over the past 30 years, there has been an inexorable growth of party-line politics in Washington. Where crossing party lines was once an accepted and routine part of congressional practice, it is now almost as rare as in a parliamentary government, where massive defections on any issue could bring down the government.The growth of party-line voting reflects a parallel tendency to nationalize congressional elections, a trend that dates back to Newt Gingrich’s revolution of 1994, in which he wrested control of both houses from the Democrats. Until Gingrich, the maxim of his predecessor Tip O’Neill that “all politics is local”...

Streisand has retaliated not with interviews or public statements, but by way of the Internet. On her Web site, she has issued a response she titles "Does the Truth Matter These Days?" "Normally, I would not dignify vicious, mean-spirited mythology masquerading as biography," she begins. "But it seems this latest rehash of other unauthorized biographies is getting a lot of attention. "Who is the person described in this book? From what...

    In his 2006 State of the Union address—between thanking outgoing Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor for her service and heralding his wife's Helping America's Youth Initiative—President Bush slipped in a call for a ban on "human-animal hybrids." It's probably a phrase that brings thoughts of centaurs, fauns and harpies to some minds. But, despite the President's stern disapproval of mixed-species clones, we may soon find food products derived from them not just in our research labs, but on our kitchen tables within the next year.A Dutch biotechnology company called Pharming has genetically engineered cows, outfitting females with a human...

Screenwriter and producer Norman Lear, director Rob Reiner, actress and singer Barbara Streisand and musician Don Henley have written checks to Lampson, according to politicalmoneyline.com, a website that tracks campaign contributions. Reiner and Streisand kicked in $1,000, and Lear and Henley sent Lampson $4,200. While Democrats have courted Hollywood stars in recent years, the moguls’ money has usually flowed to presidential candidates, the national party or the congressional fundraising committees.

Fifty-three officers from a number of law enforcement agencies, some with guns drawn, stormed into two Aspen restaurants during the busy after-ski time last Friday. The raids happened shortly after 4 p.m. and netted about 2 ounces of cocaine, $3,000 in cash, nine arrests for drug involvement and 11 for immigration law violations.

    'iPod tax' coming to Japan? In the United States, recording labels want a bigger slice of Apple Computer's success in digital music by seeking higher prices on downloaded songs. Japan's music industry has a different idea: putting a fee on iPods. The industry has asked the Japanese government to charge a royalty, to be added to the retail price of portable digital music players like Apple's iPod, which has been explosively popular here. Money earned from the fee, which will be probably be 2 percent to 5 percent of the retail price, would go to recording companies, songwriters and artists...

Let's hope that the press does not forget about Mr. Rove and the White House's role in the leak of undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity. The Fitzgerald investigation and the Rove story are too important to stay off the front page. Not only does it reveal the truly secretive and subversive nature of this administration, but it exposes the major National Security implications of disclosing the identity of a covert intelligence officer.

    NASA Hubble Space Telescope's most detailed visible-light image ever taken of a narrow, dusty ring around the nearby star Fomalhaut (HD 216956), offers the strongest evidence yet that an unruly and unseen planet may be gravitationally tugging on the ring. Hubble unequivocally shows that the center of the ring is a whopping 1.4 billion miles (15 astronomical units) away from the star. This is a distance equal to nearly halfway across our solar system. The most plausible explanation, astronomers said, is that an unseen planet moving in an elliptical orbit is reshaping the ring with its gravitational pull. The geometrically...

    DECEMBER 3--A Los Angeles judge today threw out Barbra Streisand's $10 million suit against a California environmental group that posted a photo of the singer's cliffside Malibu estate on its web site. In a 46-page tentative decision, the summary from which you'll find below, Superior Court Judge Allan J. Goodman declared that the aerial photo's publication was protected by the First Amendment and, to boot, was not "highly offensive to a reasonable person." Swatting away Streisand's claim that her privacy was violated, Goodman stated, "As a matter of law, there is nothing private or personal" about the photo, a copy...

    On Barbara Streisand: Babs has again opened her mouth and put a pair of million dollar shoes in it. Seems that the hit piece “The Reagans” was deep sixed by CBS after a firestorm of criticism rained down upon the network. Babs has a great voice, don’t get me wrong. But when she spouts off about anything other than music, she leaves herself wide open for shots I feel it my civic duty to take. Memo to Babs: You mentioned many things about the CBS miniseries. You correctly stated it is a drama and not a documentary. Bravo. You failed,...

    PRINCETON, NJ -- An Unfinished Life, historian Robert Dallek's new book about the life of President John F. Kennedy, was released this week. The book, among other things, illustrates the gravity of Kennedy's medical problems, describes an alleged affair with a White House intern, and speculates about how Kennedy would have handled the Vietnam War. The publication of this new Kennedy biography raises the question of where Kennedy ranks in the eyes of Americans. Lincoln, Kennedy Have Slight Edge on Greatest U.S. President This Year An April CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll asked Americans: "Who do you regard as the greatest United...

    They came out to protest the war against Iraq. They did their utmost to demoralize, humiliate and slander everyone and everything from President Bush to the soldier in uniform for even thinking about bringing an end to Saddam Hussein and his monstrous regime. Communists, socialists, terrorists, polititians and anti-Americans from every slimey corner of the country rushed to Hollywood actors to rally their cause acrooss the country. Here are just a few of them at anti-American rallies. What do they have to say about protecting their hero Saddam and his band of hideous terrorist thugs now?

    I know I am not welcome hear among King George's sycophants, but some things need to be told. George always wanted war. Now George has the war he always wanted. Enjoy these last special moments because the world will be never be the same again. There will now be a clash of culture, a clash of civilization, with so many innocent lives lost. Who would have thought a know-nothing, incompetent, with no achievements except what his family name garnered would have gotten the chance to plunge the world such danger, into darkness? Now, he gets the chance to lead the...
