  • Black porn star sues director for making white co-star call him N-word during racist sex shoot

    A black porn star from the Bronx says he was duped into performing in a hardcore-racist adult film that depicts his white co-star calling him the N-word without his consent. Maurice McKnight, who goes by the stage name Moe the Monster, claims in a new lawsuit the hate speech was spewed during a shocking shoot in Tarzana, Calif., last July. McKnight says director James Joseph Camp tried - and failed - on two separate occasions during the production to get his pre-approval for use of the despicable dialogue. He claims Camp first approached him before filming began and said the...

    Jerry Seinfeld isn’t interested in Donald Trump jokes. The comedian behind the legendary Seinfeld sitcom sat down with David Letterman for an upcoming episode of the Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Perhaps hopefully, Letterman wondered, “Do you do Trump stuff when you go out?” Seinfeld shut down this topic by humorously changing the subject: “No, it doesn’t interest me. I do a lot of raisin stuff.” He joked: I just think that it’s interesting that after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went, 'Hey, why don’t we put some chocolate on it?' Imagine not thinking of that for 80...
  • The Striking Similarities Between SJWs and Evangelicals

    Over the past several years, the Social Justice Warrior movement has swelled to become a formidable beast in the US. Anyone who does not follow their strict doctrine is lambasted with terms such as “fascist”, “racist”, “mansplainer“, “deplorable” and an abundance of other dehumanizing insults. SJWs have corrupted academia, the media and politics. However, this isn’t the first time America has had to deal with such a corrosive ideology. The wave of Evangelicals that came during the last part of last century was (and still partially is) extremely similar to the SJW movement. Just to be clear, being a believer...

Their bodies were discovered Thursday inside a bathroom at their home on Markham Street near Weslayan. "It's not truly set in yet," said Ben's longtime friend, Edward Sanchez.

    Dubbed Wall++, the researchers found that they could use conductive paint and a custom sensor board to create electrodes and turn a standard wall into a gesture-sensing touchpad and an “electromagnetic sensor to detect and track electrical devices and appliances.” The system could potentially monitor activity in rooms, automatically adjust light levels when a TV is turned on or off, or send an alert when an appliance goes off. The Wall++ could also track people wearing certain electronic devices that emit an electromagnetic signature. ...

    President Trump will not attend the White House Correspondents Association Dinner this year, continuing a boycott that began his first year in office, the White House announced on Friday, but the president will “actively encourage” members of his administration to go in celebration of the First Amendment. The president’s decision did not come as much of a surprise. Just a few hours after the announcement on Friday, the president tweeted about the “Fake News Media” and said, “so much of the media is dishonest and corrupt!”

    AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - An Augusta woman was arrested Sunday night for reportedly attempting to tear off her boyfriend's genitals. At around 8:16 p.m. on Feb. 11, deputies responded to a home on Alden Drive for reports of a domestic situation. Deputies spoke with the victim, who told them that while he and his girlfriend, forty-seven-year-old Melinda Dillashaw were sitting around the house, he told her to start cleaning the house, which he says was fully covered in animal feces. He says that angered Dillashaw and she started a verbal altercation, which turned physical when she grabbed him by the...

    There will be no medal for American skier Lindsey Vonn in the Olympic super-G at the Pyeongchang Games. She had a fast run going before a mistake near the bottom cost her valuable time. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein leads after the opening eight racers. Vonn will have another chance in the downhill. At age 33, she is trying to become the oldest woman to win an Olympic Alpine medal. She won bronze in the super-G at the 2010 Vancouver Games — to go with her downhill gold — but missed the 2014 Sochi Olympics after surgery on her right knee.

    She’s played everyone from “Hunger Games” protagonist Katniss Everdeen, to a jealous wife in “American Hustle,” to a ballerina-turned-Russian spy in her latest film, but Jennifer Lawrence says her next role could be portraying a real-life potential 2020 contender. When asked which political character she’d want to play, Lawrence told ITK, “I could play Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren as Pocahontas.” The quip was an apparent reference to a slur lobbed at the Massachusetts Democrat by President Trump. The commander in chief has called Warren — who claims partial Native American heritage — “Pocahontas” before, most recently at a November event honoring...

    The Senate shot down Sen. John McCain’s latest immigration legalization proposal Thursday as lawmakers finally began their long-awaited floor fight over the fate of “Dreamers.” Mr. McCain and Sen. Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, had proposed an amnesty for perhaps 3 million illegal immigrants in exchange for a study of border security and a promise of action by 2021. But the plan had been rejected by President Trump and garnered only 52 votes in support, which was well shy of the 60 senators had set as the needed threshold for action. Votes were expected in quick succession on a plan to...

    Another beloved comedy series is coming back for a new installment on its original network. CBS has given a 13-episode series order to Murphy Brown, a revival of the 1988 sitcom with its creator Diane English and star Candice Bergen both set to return. Warner Bros. TV, which was behind the original series, is the sole studio. Bergen will reprise her role as the famous investigative journalist and TV anchor at the FYI network, as Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate.

    Is climate change losing its luster as an issue for the Hollywood left? Or have so many "Inconvenient Truths" about global warming been debunked that it has forced Hollywood into an embarrassed silence? The sequel to Al Gore's 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth released in 2017 and titled An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, failed to pick up a single Oscar nomination. The 2006 film won "Best Documentary" and "Best Song."

    OSLO - Many Norwegians rejected on Friday a suggestion by U.S. President Donald Trump that they would be more welcome to move to the United States than immigrants from “shithole countries” such as Haiti or African nations. The Nordic country, one of the richest in the world by GDP per capita, was last year named the happiest nation on the planet and is known for a cradle-to-grave welfare state funded in part by large reserves of oil and natural gas. “On behalf of Norway: Thanks, but no thanks,” tweeted Torbjoern Saetre, a politician representing Norway’s Conservative Party in a municipality...
