    New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was...

    President Trump and Hillary Clinton are still going at it, and if Trump has his way, they'll square off again in 2020. President Trump tweeted Monday that he hopes "Crooked" Hillary Clinton runs for president again, even as the former secretary of state was telling an Australian media outlet that former FBI Director James Comey gave her the "shiv." "I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, "I hope so!" Trump tweeted.

    Amazon Studios head Roy Price — suspended “indefinitely” this past week after being accused of sexual harassment — was about to marry writer Lila Feinberg in four weeks but she has now called off the wedding. Feinberg and Price were to tie the knot on Nov. 12 in a lavish ceremony at The Carlyle on Madison Avenue, but multiple sources confirm that Feinberg — an award-winning playwright and TV writer — has just canceled it. Price was accused of lewdly propositioning Isa Dick Hackett, a producer on Amazon’s hit show “The Man in the High Castle.”

    1 min. video of nut Brad Sherman at link. (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Brad Sherman (D.-Calif.) said in a speech on the House floor on Thursday that President Donald Trump has “an uncontrollable person need to pour disgusting liquids on anything associated with President Obama.” In July, Rep. Sherman filed articles of impeachment against President Trump—that have gone nowhere in the House—and last week put out a press release entitled “The Case for Impeaching Donald J. Trump.” In his speech on the House floor, which was televised on C-SPAN and reported in the Congressional Record , Sherman did not specify exactly...

    Russian efforts to meddle in American politics did not end at Facebook and Twitter. A CNN investigation of a Russian-linked account shows its tentacles extended to YouTube, Tumblr and even Pokémon Go. One Russian-linked campaign posing as part of the Black Lives Matter movement used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Pokémon Go and even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN has learned. The campaign, titled "Don't Shoot Us," offers new insights into how Russian agents created a broad online ecosystem where divisive political messages were reinforced across multiple platforms,...

    Brad Pitt was one of the only men in Hollywood to confront Harvey Weinstein after hearing that Weinstein had allegedly made unwanted sexual advances toward his young love interest. It was back in the 1990s before Pitt blossomed into the major star he is today, revealed a source. According to People Magazine, this source said Brad Pitt got wind of Weinstein allegedly sexually harassing Gwyneth Paltrow right around the time she was just hired by Weinstein for the lead role in Emma. She said Weinstein made unwanted sexual advances toward her in a hotel room. Paltrow was only 22 at...

    White House senior adviser Stephen Miller once jumped into a women's track meet to make a point. In a lengthy profile published on Monday, The New York Times reported that Miller "jumped into the final stretch of a girls' track meet, apparently intent on proving athletic supremacy over the opposite sex." The White House seems not to have denied the incident to the Times, only clarifying that the girls' track team was from another school. Classmates remembered different racially and politically charged incidents. Miller "set off on a patriotic semi-striptease before the editor of the student newspaper, according to the...

    Bridal week is just getting started, but a big theme has already emerged: non-wedding dresses. By that, we don’t mean dresses that aren’t “bridal,” nor dresses in crazy colors; rather, designers are considering what a bride might wear to her pre-wedding party, post-wedding brunch, and myriad other wedding-related events, in addition to the ceremony and reception. Any girl who spent the summer crisscrossing the globe for destination weddings can attest that those brides need way more than one look; the current vogue, if you’re lucky, is to wear a range of chic white outfits leading up to the big day....

    When a scandal forces liberals to criticize both Hollywood and the Obamas, you know it’s bad. Hollywood and Washington are both freaked out over a New York Times report about mega-producer Harvey Weinstein and allegations of sexual harassment over nearly three decades. Several liberals raised a key point: Wasn’t this the same producer that gave Malia Obama an internship at the Weinstein company? The Daily Beast also asked: If Hollywood knew about Weinstein’s supposed harassment, why didn’t they speak out against him? Former New York Times writer Frank Rich, now executive producer for Veep, tweeted on October 6, “Biggest mystery...

    The new revelation, which allegedly took place a decade ago, comes after an explosive New York Times report said Weinstein had previously settled eight sexual harassment claims. Harvey Weinstein once trapped a woman in the hallway of a restaurant that was closed to the public and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated, she says. The accusation comes a day after Weinstein was the subject of a bombshell New York Times report that revealed that he has settled at least eight sexual harassment claims. The incident took place a decade ago, according to Lauren Sivan, who at the time...

    Tim Tebow thinks the guys are going to a Halloween party costumed as "Star Wars" characters. But his "Heisman House" buddies are all dressed as Tim Tebow - except Derrick Henry. He's going as a baseball player. Alabama's 2015 Heisman Trophy winner pokes fun at the baseball career of Florida's 2007 Heisman Trophy winner in the latest installment of Toyota's "Heisman House" commercials. (It's really Nissan) In the ad, Henry is dressed in a No. 15 baseball uniform with "Bugs" written on the front. Tebow spent the first half of the 2017 baseball season playing for the Columbia Fireflies of...
  • Anti-abortion Rep. Dr. Tim Murphy to quit Congress after urging mistress to get abortion. (Tr)

    Headline only. Sources in DC confirm he sent resignation letter to Ryan today. Yesterday he announced he will not run again. Today he quit. On September 6, 2017, Murphy publicly admitted to having conducted an extramarital affair with forensic psychologist Shannon Edwards, after a judge upheld a subpoena for Murphy to be deposed in the divorce proceedings by Edwards' husband Dr. Jesse Sally, who contended that Murphy's testimony would be relevant to Edwards' alimony request. A report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says that Edwards wrote Murphy "you have zero issue posting your pro-life stance...when you had no issue asking me...

  • Facebook Censors Pro-Gun Video Mocking Weapon Hysteria

    Facebook censored a pro-gun video of a user mocking the hysteria around how “easy” it allegedly is to convert rifles to automatic fire. The video can be seen here, but can’t be embedded because it “may show graphic violence or gore.” The censored video doesn’t show violence or gore. It shows Facebook user Andy Orlando disassembling a rifle and handgun while joking about converting them to automatic fire. In reality, he made the weapons completely useless. He pulled the slide spring out of his Sig handgun, and removed the bolt carrier group from his AR-15 rifle. The AR-15 is 100...

    In the post, Ms. Cole, a film producer, said that Mr. Whedon “hid multiple affairs” with “his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends” during their 16-year marriage. His explanation for why he had so many female friends, she said, was that “his mother raised him as a feminist.” Moreover, Ms. Cole called out his “hypocrisy” for “preaching feminist ideals” while using their marriage as a “shield” to commit adultery. In essence, she branded Mr. Whedon, the director of the coming “Justice League” superhero film, a fake male feminist. It’s a label that appears to be gaining cultural currency, especially in the...

    Embattled comedian Kathy Griffin is featured in this week’s UK Guardian magazine cover story, in which she defends her decision to share a photo of herself holding up a blood-soaked head of President Donald Trump. Griffin tweeted the Guardian cover photo which shows her dressed in the likeness of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, a communist dictator who murdered thousands of political dissidents. In the interview, Griffin explains how “anyone” would have taken the Trump photo and argues that she is the victim of “sexism and ageism” at the hands of Trump. “I took a picture that you or anyone of...
