    The Los Angeles Police Department will deploy 500 officers to wrap the Dolby Theatre in multiple barriers of armed security for the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night, an event at which several of Hollywood’s most celebrated stars will actively push for more gun control in America. “We have these concentric rings of security that start in the middle and radiate outward,” said LAPD Cmdr. Blake Chow, the man tasked with overseeing the massive operation. “We have a lot of officers in fixed posts and foot beats keeping an eye on the event.” Several celebrities plan to wear orange lapel...

    “Celebrities provide us entertainment and escapism from the limitations of reality. But in real life, they’re still subject to reality, if barely,” NRA News contributor Colion Noir says in his latest video. In the three-minute video Noir blasts Hollywood for its stars taking a stand against guns while its product glorifies violence. “These celebrities couldn’t be more out of touch with reality. And then the arrogance, it’s just overwhelming,” he says. “No one’s saying celebrities can’t have an opinion,” he says later. “But hypocrisy is hypocrisy. Somehow our culture has given celebrities a pass on being hypocrites. These celebs literally...

    Hollywood puts its faith in holy films John Harlow, Los Angeles HOLLYWOOD, long accused of promoting Godless amorality, has found religion. Studio executives are praying that a flood of Christian films will rescue them from a slump by performing miracles at the multiplex.

First into the cinemas will be The Da Vinci Code, starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tatou, due for...
