    One week after “Motherless Brooklyn” disappointed the box office, Warner Bros. has yet another flop in the form of “Doctor Sleep.” The Mike Flanagan-directed horror film based on Stephen King’s “The Shining” sequel was tracking for a debut in the $25 million range, but its opening weekend came in well below that mark with a dismal $14 million total. While “Doctor Sleep’s” $50 million production is a saving grace, Deadline reports the film is expected to lose between $20 million and $30 million for Warner Bros. “Doctor Sleep” now joins “The Goldfinch,” “Gemini Man,” and “Terminator: Dark Fate” as one...

    KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) — Kansas City voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved removing Dr. Martin Luther King's name from one of the city's most historic boulevards, less than a year after the city council decided to rename The Paseo for the civil rights icon. Unofficial results vote showed the proposal to remove King's name received nearly 70% of the vote, with just over 30% voting to retain King's name. The debate over the name of the 10-mile boulevard on the city's mostly black east side began shortly after the council's decision in January to rename The Paseo for King. Civil...

    Thailand's King Vajiralongkorn has stripped his royal consort of her rank and titles for "misbehaviour and disloyalty against the monarch". An official announcement said Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi had been "ambitious" and tried to "elevate herself to the same state as the queen". "The royal consort's behaviors were considered disrespectful," it said. She was appointed in July, just two months after the king married Queen Suthida, his fourth wife. Sineenat, who was a major-general and is a trained pilot, nurse, and bodyguard, was the first person to be awarded the title of Royal Noble Consort in nearly a century.

    By now, Shaun King should be used to the drama. After all, the accusations King has faced are legion. People have accused him of not being black, of being a government operative inserted to dismantle the movement, of being an egomaniac who centers himself in the movement, a plagiarist who co-opts the work of black women, a bully who uses his influence and large following to silence those who question him, a fraud who starts multiple activism ventures that never come to fruition—and the biggest most frequent accusation: a thief who benefits financially from the fundraisers he promotes. The activist,...

    Rep. Pete King is the first Republican to sign on to the assault weapons ban WASHINGTON — An assault weapons ban that Democratic leaders have been reluctant to advance despite strong support among their rank-and-file members in the House just got its first Republican backer — Long Island Rep. Pete King. “They are weapons of mass slaughter,” King said shortly after his backing became public on Congress’ website Monday. “I don’t see any need for them in everyday society,” King said. The Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 was rolled out in February by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), with 190 other...

    Cenk Uygur, Mark Thompson, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, say Republicans are getting more fascist by the day. Uygur said by nature conservatives are authoritarian so they want a leader to take over and lead. CENK UYGUR: By nature conservatives are authoritarian so they want a leader to take over and lead. So to them, checking with Congress, that's a pain in the ass. They just don't fundamentally believe in the concept of democracy as much as we do. You can go ahead and cry about that but that's the nature of conservativism that you believe in...
  • Biden Is Still King of the Moderates -- But Will It Last?

    realclearpolitics ^ | 07/25/2019 | David Brady & Brett Parker
    Throughout this primary season, poll after poll has indicated that Democratic voters are overwhelming focused on finding a candidate who can make Donald Trump a one-term president. By a 2-to-1 ratio, likely primary voters place beating Trump above selecting a nominee who shares their policy positions. This overarching goal also serves as the main justification for former Vice President Joe Biden’s candidacy. On the stump, in fundraisers, and on the debate stage, a central component of his appeal is his claimed ability to carry the moderates and independents necessary recapture the electoral votes of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. His voters...

    SANTA FE – Lawsuit claims about young female sex slaves allegedly kept by billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein and offered to a worldwide list of the rich and famous have reached New Mexico. In a new court filing in Florida, plaintiffs’ lawyers maintain that a woman identified as Jane Doe No. 3, said to have been coerced into Epstein’s camp when she was 15 years old, was frequently sexually abused by Epstein “not only in West Palm Beach (Fla.), but also in New York, New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, in international airspace on … Epstein’s private planes, and elsewhere.” Epstein...

    With “Midsommar” earning raves and performing well at the box office, horror has never been hotter. And if, as Justin Chang argued in the Los Angeles Times back in 2017, horror has become the defining genre of the Trump presidency, then Stephen King is its patron saint. The master of horror’s many works have seen renewed interest thanks to a slew of successful adaptations, from the box office record-breaker “It,” to its much-hyped follow-up “It: Chapter Two,” and many more projects currently in the works. And while the master of horror certainly is the king of scary set-ups, he says...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden likened the cultural effects of President Trump's election to the assassinations of former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in a Saturday interview with Al Sharpton. During a discussion in South Carolina that touched on criminal justice reform, Biden argued that Trump's rise to power had awakened an entire generation to the necessity of getting involved in politics, much like the violent murders of political figures did for baby boomers in the 1960s. "I think what’s happening now is, I think that Donald Trump may have reawakened sensibilities in this country...

    Dispensationalists don’t believe that Jesus is reigning now as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. They think his reign only happens in a literal thousand-year millennium sometime in the future. They think that Satan is ruling the world now. This seems like an astounding conclusion for any professing Christian, and a horrendous insult to our Lord—especially since the Bible teaches that Jesus is indeed reigning NOW as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Here are some Bible verses: “For us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,...

    What’s with this Archie business? Who ever hear of an English king, or any king, called Archie? Edward, George, Charles, James, yes, but Archie? Blimey. It’s a comic book name, or a name out of the old Archie Bunker television sitcom “All in the Family.” Even the London bookmakers were baffled by the choice. Their betting favorites were Albert, Arthur or Alexander. While Archie is short for Archibald, what country did a King Archibald ever rule? Not that the newborn Archie, the first child of Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 37 — excuse me, the Duke and Duchess of...

He said the teacher told the students they weren't real Christians if they didn't support President Donald Trump.
