    Attorney General Holder heads to Zurich, Switzerland tomorrow to lobby to bring the World Cup to the U.S. in 2022.Justice Dept. says Holder is making the trip to Zurich at the request of Pres. Obama to show US commitment to host World Cup in 2022. Pres. Obama lost U.S. effort in '09 to host 2016 Summer Olympics. WH hopes Holder's mission to Zurich doesn't end up a Swiss miss.Perhaps we'll find out more about the World Cup mission from Holder's cables in the next WikiLeaks document disclosures.

    Morgan Freeman loses his marbles. "We have been attacked. We are at war," Freeman says in the beginning of his speech. The actor describes Putin's biography and accuses him of attempts to undermine democracies around the world, including the US. In his speech, Morgan Freeman does not urge anyone to protect the borders of the USA. Instead, he talks about the need to destroy an aggressor, the aggression of which is clearly manifested, but we do not understand how. Afterwards, Freeman calls on his president to publicly acknowledge the fact of Russia's interference in the US presidential election.

    Hillary Clinton is anxious to compete in the Democratic primary in Kentucky, particularly after suffering a humiliating loss in West Virginia. Now she is relying on the golden voice of Morgan Freeman, to help turn out black voters in the state. In a new, minute-long ad, Clinton begins by telling voters of what she calls “systemic racism” in the United States. “We have to face up to the hard truths of injustice and systemic racism,” she says, recalling the wrongs suffered by African American voters in the justice system and at the hands of police officers.

    Morgan Freeman, Jack Black and a host of other celebrities star in a video backing Americas' nuclear deal with Iran, wise-cracking their way through an often surreal mixture of Hollywood, politics and diplomacy. The video uploaded this week onto YouTube comes as President Barack Obama's administration tries to sell the agreement to the public and a sceptical Congress.

    One of the most unique things about grassroots movements that a lot of people don’t realize is that they have the potential to pick up some pretty incredible, and oftentimes unexpected, allies as they grow in size and scope. Along the way, these new allies lend their own talents, perspectives, advice and more the movement. And sometimes, these allies end up being pretty influential simply by being themselves, as many people have especially noted with celebrities. Most celebrities, love ’em or hate ’em (and love or hate the system for that matter), are one-man or one-woman media outlets with the...

The idea that humans only use 10% of their brains is a complete, utter, and total myth. Lucy is entirely premised on neuroscientific BS...

    While appearing on CNN Wednesday night, actor Morgan Freeman spread some refreshing ideas about debating income inequality in the United States. Freeman stood up for the middle-class, telling host Don Lemon that without the middle-class, there would be no way to continue being a great nation of consumers. When Lemon asked the actor whether he believed that race was a major contributing factor to income inequality, Freeman sternly disagreed. “Do you think that race plays in a part in wealth distribution?” Lemon asked. “No, no, no, I don’t. You and I are, we’re proof. Why would race have anything to...

    Several A-listers are banding together to beg President Barack Obama to keep his word about seeking a world [free] of nuclear weapons. Apparently, they've been cycling through the Superman movies to ready themselves for Man of Steel and stumbled upon Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. Actors Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Naomi Watts, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin, among others, appear in a new video for Global Zero urging the president to address the issue at next week’s G-8 summit.... Freeman and Sheen conclude, “For if we believe that the spread of nuclear weapons is...

    Exclusive: Jesse Lee Peterson declares, 'It's time for whites to speak out' White Americans are under assault, and with the re-election of President Barack Obama, black racism is on the rise! There’s no better example of black racism than when actor Jamie Foxx hosted “Saturday Night Live” and joked about his new film, “Django Unchained”: “I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?” He went on to say, “My president, President Obama, is back up in the White House for four more years. How black is that?”...

    hick-fil-A President and COO Dan Cathy faces a consumer protest for expressing his opposition to same-sex marriage. Fair enough. Offended, the Democratic mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Francisco threatened to prevent the Georgia-based fast-food company from operating in their cities! Whether for or against same-sex marriage, what part of the First Amendment do these radical mayors not understand? The First Amendment is about preventing government from infringing on political speech. This is a clear-cut case of suppression and punishment of Cathy's right of free speech. In an interview picked up by the Baptist Press, Cathy told the Biblical Recorder...

    It shouldn’t matter that I, an author with the audacity to select such a title, am black. The arguments presented should stand or fall on their objective merit. Nevertheless, I declare my racial identity at the outset to defuse any prejudice readers may bring regarding the motivation behind this piece. Indeed, it is in part because I am black that the following must be said. All things considered, blacks and the civil rights culture surrounding them are the most open and prolific purveyors of racism in America. This is an ironic travesty which spits upon the graves of history’s abolitionists...

    I didn’t say it. Morgan Freeman said it. In an interview with NPR to promote his latest film, The Magic of Belle Isle, the popular Oscar-winning actor said that people “conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.” Freeman implied that it’s Obama’s white side that’s the problem. This clearly fits the definition of racism: an ideology of...
