    Around 30 female protesters disrupted Bill Cosby's stand-up comedy show in Hamilton, Ontario Friday night, yelling "We believe the women." The Hollywood Reporter witnessed as the comedian grimly attempted to calm his fans while police and security guards moved in to end the disruption. Then, just as Cosby launched into his comedy act, roughly 30 women rose from their seats, removed their coats to display white t-shirts emblazoned with the words "We Believe the Women" across the front and backs to launch their protest. Some of the women blew whistles, while others shouted down Cosby by chanting "we believe the...

    During a speech on the middle class and housing at a Phoenix, Arizona high school, President Obama was heckled by a member of the audience. (VIDEO: Christie Shouts Down Heckler: ‘Sit Down and Shut Up!’) Halfway through Obama’s speech at Central High School, considered part of a pre-State of the Union tour to sell his policies, the heckler began yelling. “Is this about housing?” Obama asked, before the shouting stops. WATCH: (starting at 58:21) It’s difficult to make out what the heckler was yelling about in the official White House video, but local media indicate that she was shouting something...
  • Kolkhorst: Abbott supports repeal, ‘toughening’ of Texas DREAM Act

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | Patrick Svitek
    State Sen.-elect Lois Kolkhorst, laying out her priorities since winning a promotion to the upper chamber, said Wednesday she anticipates a “big revamp or repeal” of the Texas law allowing in-state tuition for illegal immigrants — a move that has the blessing of Gov.-elect Greg Abbott. (SNIP) While Patrick has vowed to repeal the DREAM Act, Abbott’s position has been less straightforward. During his second gubernatorial debate with Democratic opponent Wendy Davis, he said he would not veto a repeal of the law if it came to his desk. His campaign has previously expressed a need to reform the measure...

    The heckling came at the end of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia which she gave in acceptance for the 2013 Liberty Medal, Tuesday night. In her speech, Hillary kept it bland, largely staying away from controversial issues: Clinton paid lip service to the pressing questions of the day: how the United States should respond to the use of chemical weapons -- the question at stake in Syria -- and how it should balance the need for both liberty and security. But she did not offer any concrete answer on these highly...

    "This is part of the lively debate we talked about," Obama said. "This is good." He added, "You know, I have to say, we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home. You know, I wouldn't feel comfortable if I didn't have at least one heckler." The heckler appeared to be screaming in Hebrew, though it's not clear what he was saying. UPDATE: The White House pool reporter adds: There was a heckler about 15 minutes into remarks. Man standing to Obama’s left back near center press platform began shouting in Hebrew. A reliable Hebrew speaker seated...

    A heckler interrupted President Obama’s speech on energy policy Thursday at Ohio State University. The president, looking frustrated, stopped speaking and addressed the man "Sir. Im here to speak to these folks. You can hold your own rally. You're being rude," Obama said, as the crowd applauded. The heckler was apparently holding up a book for Obama to read. The president said he would read the book, but asked the man to stop interrupting his speech. "Sir, I'm trying to talk to these people. I'll be happy to read your book. If you wanna give me your book, I'll be...

    Occupy Chicago protestors interrupted Mayor Rahm Emanuel for about three minutes Thursday as the mayor shared a stage with pundits at the inauguration of former White House advisor David Axelrod’s Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago. “He has fired 363 library employees and cut numerous CTA routes,” protestors shouted. “Do I take it that your election was not unanimous?” Republican pundit Alex Castellanos teased Emanuel. Emanuel smiled and conceded that his election as mayor was not unanimous

    It’s either karma, or just desserts, or chickens coming home to roost, as Barack Obama’s old pastor likes to say. After stoking the passions of class warfare for the last two months, the protests that just coincidentally arose at the same time arrived on Obama’s figurative doorstep as he campaigned in New Hampshire. Occupiers heckled Obama using the “human mic” technique, as this clip shows:

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is heckled by an Iowa State Fair attendee about her support for cutting Medicare to seniors and supporting the Wall Street agenda. She dismisses his points by saying he's an example of the division in this country even though it seems like he's actually arguing for points that liberals and progressives believe in.

    Here is raw video of President Obama jumping on a shuttle bus on Memorial Day to greet people who had tried to attend Memorial Day observances at the Lincoln National Cemetery in Illinois. As soon as Obama gets on the bus and starts talking, you can hear a voice say several times, “Impeach Obama,” and “Liar.” Most of those on the bus seemed appreciative that Obama had come to greet them.

    The United Nations says it has expelled a "large number" of members of a Jewish student group from a global racism conference after some of them disrupted a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Spokeswoman Marie Heuze says the UN acted in response to Monday's disturbance by rainbow-wigged protesters, who shouted insults and threw small red clowns' noses at Ahmadinejad. Members of the European Union of Jewish Students also attempted to block the Iranian leader's appearance at a news conference. Heuze said Tuesday the students "have no chance of returning."

    Unless you've been living under a rock (and it's okay to admit if you have, I'm told rent is cheap), you probably heard that President Barack Obama sat courtside at D.C.'s Verizon Center Friday night, watching his hometown Chicago Bulls take on the Washington Wizards. The First Fan drank beer, read the game program and left early (with four minutes left) during a blowout. "All common American activity," as Tom Ziller put it, "except most of us don't sit courtside, nor are we important enough that the NBA will hold up a tip-off until we get to our seats." (Speak...

    CHINESE President Hu Jintao has defended China's slow political reforms overnight, at the end of a US tour, as hundreds of protestors tried to drown out his speech at Yale University. Mr Hu has been dogged by the Falun gong movement and human rights protesters throughout his four days in the United States. More than 200 protestors, mainly from Falun gong, pounded drums and shouted into bullhorns the auditorium where Mr Hu spoke at the prestigious university. "Falun Dafa is good!" the protestors screamed. Other protestors demanded the release of dissidents including a jailed New York Times researcher, Zhao Yan....

    2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was heckled by a crowd of high school and college-age students in her hometown of Chicago yesterday, with ABC News reporting that security guards eventually "dragged some of the protesters out of the auditorium." The former first lady was onstage only a few seconds when the crowd erupted with shouts of: "Troops out now! Troops out now!" As anti-war leaflets poured from one balcony, umbrellas were unfurled from another displaying the message, "Out of Iraq." Mrs. Clinton initially tried to bargain with her critics, pleading: "Give me a chance and I'll address that if you'll...

    Has "Spider-Man 2" pushed "Fahrenheit 9/11" director Michael Moore out of the limelight? And is Moore having trouble coping with his predictable drop from the top spot? Last weekend, the Tobey Maguire blockbuster dwarfed the anti-Bush polemic - with "Spider-Man 2" grossing a record $116 million compared with $21 million for "Fahrenheit 9/11." Monday night, on the third floor of the UA Battery Park cineplex, a crowd of "Spider-Man 2" filmgoers converged in waves, all but drowning out a fat bearded man who had appeared to give an impromptu oration. Namely, Michael Moore. "Check out my Web site, www.michaelmoore.com," Moore...
