    “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson erased approximately 20,000 of his tweets days after Disney fired “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn over offensive online remarks. Johnson explained on Twitter that he wasn’t deleting his tweets under any official directive, but was preemptively destroying ammunition in the event right-wing trolls try digging them up to ruin his career. “No official directive at all, and I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted anything that bad,” Johnson tweeted. “But it’s nine years of stuff written largely off the cuff as ephemera, if trolls scrutinizing it for ammunition is the new...

    Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared on Wednesday to advise witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to destroy their personal phones before handing them over to prosecutors. "If I advised them to follow Hillary Clintons lead, delete all your emails and then acid-wash your emails and hard drives on the phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer to little itsy bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the sim cards and then take the pieces and hand them over to Robert Mueller," Hannity said on air. The conservative television host's comments came after CNBC reported that Mueller's...

    Just 24-hours after Roseanne was fired by ABC for making a derogatory statement about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett (which she then apologized for), leftist comedian Samantha Bee included a segment on her TBS show in which she called current White House senior advisor Ivanka Trump a "feckless c*nt." Why? Because she dared to post a photo holding her son."You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c**t!” Bee said.

    The Union City teachers union chief is under fire after the release of an undercover video that shows her denigrating some of the city's public-school students, suggesting a teacher not report that he hurt a student and referring to a Union City teacher who had sex with a child but was not charged criminally. Conservative group Project Veritas, which has been slammed by the statewide teachers union for "using dishonest and illegal tactics to fabricate false stories," released the 15-minute video on Wednesday morning, one day following the release of a similar video that resulted in the suspension of a...

    The CIA can selectively divulge classified information to selected reporters in emails yet withhold that information from other journalists or members of the public when they seek the same information under the Freedom of Information Act, a federal judge in New York has ruled The decision appeared in the court record on Friday but became more widely disseminated Monday. The ruling comes amid vigorous national debate over leaks to the media and the use of anonymous sources in covering national security news, including an ongoing FBI investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

    A Pennsylvania branch of Planned Parenthood says a tweet declaring the need for a Disney princess who's had an abortion was not appropriate and the organization has taken it down. An executive for Planned Parenthood Keystone says the group believes pop culture plays a "critical role" in educating the public and sparking "meaningful conversations about sexual and reproductive health issues and policies, including abortion." The since-removed tweet read: "We need a Disney princess who's had an abortion. We need a Disney princess who's pro-choice. We need a Disney princess who's an undocumented immigrant. We need a Disney princess who's actually...

    Just started seeing it today go on full bore. The LACK OF CURIOSITY was there from almost the moment it was discovered that Broward LEOs were called 30+ times to killer Nikolas Cruz's home. The FBI hasn't done much to stop killer Nikolas Cruz either. Now, Broward sheriff Scott Israel, good friend of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has issued a statement saying HE will handle any problem in his department. Local Miami media is apparently satisfied with that. Now, back to attacking the Constitution, the NRA, Rick Scott and Donald Trump.

    Claims by police apologists that a "war on cops" ensued from a reform movement that emerged after the shooting of Michael Brown in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri, has no statistical support. Preliminary data from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) finds that 128 police officers died in the line of duty in 201744 of them were fatally shot. Last year 64 officers were fatally shot. And since 2011, the numbers have largely gone down. In the meantime, police have fatally shot 971 people so far this yearthe youngest of them just 6 years old. Last year, 963 people...

    Stage and screen star Sir Ian McKellen has spoken out about the sex scandal in film and theatre,claiming women are partly responsible because some tell directors they'll sleep with them to win roles. 'People must be called out and it's sometimes very difficult for victims to do that,' the Lord Of The Rings star said in a talk at the Oxford Union recently. 'I hope we're going through a period that will help to eradicate it altogether. But from my own experience, when I was starting acting in the early Sixties, the director of the theatre I was working at...

    Al Franken announced his resignation on the floor of the Senate today, a development that makes abundantly clear that the Democratic and Republican parties have never been more different in modern American history than they are right at this moment. Frankens speech started off on a surprisingly defiant note, going much farther than he had up until this point in asserting that the charges made against him are not true. But that only reinforces the point Im making about the two parties, as Ill explain in a moment: Over the last few weeks, a number of women have come forward...

    A Democrat running for Congress was arrested on a stalking charge last week, but the media has refused to give the story any coverage. David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend in 2007 and was described as infatuated and clearly obsessed by the judge in the case. The story has been met with silence from a number...

    A Russian propaganda account purporting to be run by two African-American video bloggers named Williams and Kalvin was taken down by YouTube on Monday. The takedown comes hours after a The Daily Beast report revealed Williams and Kalvins Facebook and Twitter pages were pulled in August due to their ties to the Kremlins propaganda arm. The account was terminated for violating YouTubes Community Guidelines, according to a notice posted on the page. Williams and Kalvins videos mostly spouted Russian talking points and inflammatory conspiracy theories about the Clintons, including accusations of Bill Clinton hiding a secret love child.

    The film draws from a conspiracy theory that implicates both Clinton and George H.W. Bush in a massive operation that involved cocaine smuggling, money laundering and illegal arms exporting. American Made, opening today, was poised to be the rare movie that could unite those on either side of the political divide. After all, it's based on the one conspiracy theory that implicates both Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush in a massive operation that involved cocaine smuggling, money laundering and illegal arms exporting. But those hoping for some Clinton dirt will ultimately be disappointed. The filmmakers decided to cut a...

    In the last three months, there have been at least three robberies on BART involving groups of teenagers.

April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, beating up two; June 28: A group of four kids assaulted a passenger and made off with a cell phone at Dublin; and June 30: A woman...

    The FBI is treating the attempted mass assassination of Republican lawmakers as assault and not terrorism, FBI Assistant Director in Charge Andrew Vale announced at a press conference Tuesday morning. At this time the FBI has assessed that the deceased shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, acted alone. We also assess that there was no nexus to terrorism. The FBI is investigating the shooting as an assault of a member of Congress and assault on a law enforcement officer, Vale said. The FBI has long-defined terrorism as the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce...
