  • Flying Car Fizzles: Why ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Is Hitting Turbulence With $36M+ Opening

    4th Update, Friday 11:47PM: What a fascinating business. This weekend a $35 million-budgeted horror movie in its fifth frame will gross close to nine times its production cost with a running domestic B.O. total of $304.6M. At the same time, a $155M-plus attempt to reboot a cult sci-fi franchise may not even make it to $100M by the end of its domestic theatrical cycle. We are, of course, comparing New Line/Warner Bros.’ It and Alcon Entertainment/Sony’s Blade Runner 2049, and the latter is now looking at a three-day weekend of $36.5M, an awful start for this brilliantly crafted cinematic opus...
  • The Democrats Wanted Charlottesville (This is good)

    08/18/2017 3:05:34 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 52 replies ^ | William L. Gensert
    The riots were not about a statue and it was not about the alt-right. Antifa (an umbrella term for different nominally “anti-fascist” groups) has been itching for a real fight for a long time. It was only fun attacking Trump supporters for so long (as they did in Seattle over the weekend), and their exposure in the press has been diminishing. What’s the point of rioting if you can’t get your group on CNN? Sure, you can’t let your identity be known because of potential criminal charges but the mask takes care of that. Then, you can tell your friends...
  • Dems willing to fund candidates who oppose abortion rights - Dem Campaign Chairman

    Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) said there will be no litmus tests for candidates as Democrats seek to find a winning roster to regain the House majority in 2018. “There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates,” said Luján, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman. “As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America.” In taking the position, Luján and Democrats risk alienating liberals, as well as groups dedicated to promoting access to abortion and reproductive health services that represent the...

    Police opened a criminal investigation into Marine Le Pen yesterday after Emmanuel Macron, her rival in the French presidential election, accused her of smearing him with claims that he had hidden money offshore. Prosecutors ordered the inquiry into the far-right candidate when Mr Macron, the centrist favourite for Sunday’s final-round vote, filed a complaint to the police. Ms Le Pen was libelling him by spreading fake news and trying to skew the election, he claimed.

    Meanwhile, the witch, who talks to the dead and lies to the living, still hovers over the White House The ‘Desperation of the Democrats in Exile’ is getting more surrealistic by day. During the 2016 presidential campaign It was failed contender Hillary Clinton who convinced fellow progressives and most of he mainstream media that Donald Trump was “unfit” to serve as U.S. president. The railings of Hillary, Hollywood and the media were largely ignored by a voting public who turned to Trump for relief from her and her mentor, Barack Obama.

    The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, found that 66% of voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that climate change will harm them or their family personally. And voters said they want those views reflected in policy. More than three fifths of voters — 62% — opposed Trump's targeting of regulations intended to fight climate change. A total of 72% of respondents said the government should not cut funding for scientific research—something proposed by the White House.

    Senate Republicans had to know there would be a price for their unprecedented theft of President Barack Obama’s final Supreme Court pick last year. On Thursday, Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, named it: Either find 60 votes to overcome a filibuster of President Trump’s extremely conservative nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, or find another, more moderate choice. The last four Supreme Court nominees — two from Mr. Obama and two from President George W. Bush — all met the 60-vote threshold, Mr. Schumer said, so it was fair to require the same of Judge Gorsuch.

    The face of desperation. Nancy Pelosi, as you might expect, didn’t have anything nice to say about President Trump’s address last night. She trotted out her usual assortment of well-worn anti-Trump barbs today on the Morning Joe show. As usual, she used a lot of words to say very little, and managed to put the spotlight on her own party’s fecklessness in the process. But - and this is very important - she wants you to know how “very proud” she is of the dignity displayed by Democrats who sat and listened to the President’s speech.

    Michael Moore, the ultra-liberal documentary filmmaker who infamously predicted a Trump victory well before election night last November by stunningly calling Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania for the Republican nominee, has, over the past 24 hours, decided to broadcast his latest nervous breakdown over Twitter for all to see. It all started with the following tweet storm posted by Moore in the wee hours of the morning saying that, among other things, "Flynn DID NOT make that Russian call on his own" but rather "was INSTRUCTED to do so." Moore went on to insist that Flynn was just the first...

    Dawning dread and desperation 2016 was a disastrous year for Democrats - and not just because they lost a little thing called the White House. They woke up the day after the election with champagne hangovers, caviar breath, and the horrific realization that they’d become a small, ineffectual, bi-coastal political party-ette. Worse, they were forced to admit that their media allies could no sell their tin as gold. So, they took a look at their parties “bench” to determine what comes next.

    Democratic lawmakers in California are moving swiftly to pass a package of legislation that would restrict state and local law enforcement, including school police and security departments, from using their own resources to aid federal authorities in immigration enforcement. The brewing legal battle between the state and Republican President Donald Trump, who Wednesday took sweeping actions designed to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and withhold federal funding to localities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, could test the limits of California’s power amid questions over billions of dollars in funding. The legislative package is moving four...

It also will be live-steamed online and across mobile via CNNgo and CNN SiriusXM channel 116. Sanders will take questions on major...

    Just as has been done previously with huge stories broken by Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow got a hold of some excerpts of tomorrow’s article and shared them with her viewers. In this instance, Eichenwald’s report appears to show the real reason why Russia and Vladimir Putin are backing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The story also has the subtitle that claims Putin wants to weaken NATO. SNIP-- According to the article, Russian officials who were hacking to influence the election felt that if Trump were replaced by the Republicans, the next candidate wouldn’t be as good for Russia....

    I am mad. I am mad because I am scared. And if you are a woman, you should be, too. Emailgate is a bitch hunt, but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us. The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man? Clinton is guilty of SWF (Speaking While Female), and emailgate is just a reminder to us all that she has no business doing what she’s doing and must be punished, for the sake of all decent women everywhere. There is so much of...

    Hillary Clinton is channeling Lyndon B. Johnson in a last-ditch effort to defeat a surging Donald Trump, warning that her Republican opponent is too unstable to have his finger on the button. Clinton released a remake today of Johnson's 1964 ad, 'Daisy,' that uses the same actress, Monique Corzilius Luis, to remind voters of the perils of nuclear war. 'The fear of nuclear war that we had as children, I never thought that our children would ever have to deal with that again, and to see that coming forward in this election is really scary,' Luis states, direct to camera.

Ironically in the Time article with the title, “How Russia Wants to Undermine the U.S. Election,” the Obama administration is trying to undermine the U.S. election by leaking information from Trump’s classified briefing to hurt him with the electorate. All of which makes Donald Trump’s repeated insertion of himself...
