    The seminar is called “Unleash the Power Within.” The multi-day event with world-renowned motivational speaker Tony Robbins is “designed to help you unlock and unleash the forces inside that can help you break through any limit and create the quality of life you desire,” according to promotional materials. “Overcome the unconscious fears that are holding you back,” Robbins’s site proclaims. “Storm across a bed of hot coals. “Once you start doing what you thought was impossible, you’ll conquer the other fires of your life with ease.” But Thursday night’s coal walk in Dallas didn’t go so well for dozens of...

    DALLAS — Fire officials say more than 30 people attending a Tony Robbins event in Dallas have been treated for burns after the motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals. Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says five people were taken to a hospital Thursday night and that emergency personnel treated the others at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities. The hot coals were spread outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center as part of a Robbins seminar called "Unleash the Power Within." The event continues through Sunday. Representatives for Robbins didn't immediately return messages...

    Former Pacific Fleet chief: We need full disclosure on Benghazi — now POSTED AT 9:31 AM ON OCTOBER 30, 2012 BY ED MORRISSEY Retired Admiral James A. Lyons likely pulled few punches as commander in chief of the US Pacific Fleet during his career … and he hasn’t started pulling punches now, either. In a blistering column at The Washington Times, the former commander blasts the lack of action from the US when the administration learned our consulate in Benghazi had come under attack, writing that “courage was lacking” that might have saved at least some of the four American...
  • Outspoken Lefty Actor Tim Robbins Donated Money to J.D. Hayworth Campaign

    For anyone who has ever seen Tim Robbins talk about, well, anything political, you probably find it hard to fathom that he would donate much more than a mean-spirited scowl at a extreme right-wing Republican candidate. Like us, you would be wrong. According to Federal Election Commission records dug up by the Daily Beast, Robbins shelled out $5,000 worth of donations to 10 Republican candidates in the 2006 election cycle, including a $500 check cut to controversial Arizona politico J.D. Hayworth. "Maybe because I covered the Durham Bulls as a sports broadcaster in the late 1970s and early '80s? Maybe...

    TIM Robbins' and Susan Sarandon's mission to protect the poor and needy doesn't apply to their Greenwich Village neighborhood.

    What’s the time? It’s about that time. She’s been a trooper up ’til now — 36 years of her life lived under Republican presidents and still, somehow, she hasn’t left yet. How does she stand it? She must be a bona fide SuperPatriot. “I’ve got a lot of flak from feminists who feel that I should be supporting Hillary Clinton, but I thought the whole point of feminism is that you’re not supposed to be defined by gender,” she says… Always busy, Sarandon is about to start work on the romantic period drama The Colossus, but with the presidential election...

    WILLCOX — The city may soon have a museum for another legendary singer from Arizona — Marty Robbins. The Friends of Marty Robbins announced recently that the Robbins exhibit is being moved from Glendale to Willcox. It will be at a yet-to-be-determined location. “The hometown of Rex Allen in Willcox has room in their heart for Marty Robbins,” the group’s Web site said. “Rex Allen is a another Arizona legend from Willcox, Arizona. Rex and Marty were friends in life, and Marty played in Willcox over the years.” said Juanita Buckley, founder and president of the Friends of Marty Robbins....

    The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Monday in a case that raises significant issues about the ability of private citizens to sue government employees. In the case, Wilkie v. Robbins, a Wyoming rancher charged that officers at the Interior Department's Bureau of Land Management retaliated against him after he refused to give the agency access to his land. The rancher, Harvey Frank Robbins, alleged the BLM officers violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and his Fifth Amendment rights by revoking his grazing permits and extorting him to gain access. Robbins originally filed suit against the six BLM employees...

    ENTIRE SPEECH: DFU comments -- Three years ago, Tim Robbins was disinvited from speaking at the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. Neither the Bush Adminstration nor any Republican group in Congress did anything to try to prevent that speech. As we await the showing of THE PATH TO 911, we see a former president and the highest levels of the Democratic Party threatening legal and legislative action against ABC if a movie is shown. Does everyone now realize what would happen if Hillary got back into the White House? Or how about the danger if the Dems take...

    "War of the Worlds" Spielberg-esque Message: Don't Fight Terror By Debbie Schlussel I'm violating Steven Spielberg's review policy for "War of the Worlds" and telling you what I think ahead of tomorrow's scheduled release date. I saw the movie at a press screening, last night, and was disturbed by the message: Don't fight terror, and everything will work out. (Security was literally tighter than that for going to the White House to meet the President. No purses allowed. Three wandings by security.) It's bad enough that Steven Spielberg is adding "balance" and factual inaccuracy to the story of the Israeli...

    An American Traitor: Guilty As Charged By Henry Mark Holzer and Erika | June 10, 2005For three decades Jane Fonda obfuscated, distorted and lied about virtually everything connected with her wartime trip to North Vietnam: her motive, her acts, her intent, and her contribution to the Communists’ war effort.  With the aid of clever handlers, she so successfully suppressed and spun her conduct in Hanoi that many Americans didn’t know what she had done there, and, more important, the legal significance. Three years ago, our book, “Aid and Comfort”: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam (McFarland & Co.), laid bare...

    Ex-Raider Robbins Shot by Police in Fla. MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Former pro football player Barret Robbins was hospitalized Sunday after he was shot by a police officer investigating a burglary at a South Beach office, authorities said. The one-time Pro Bowl center sustained "multiple gunshot wounds" in the torso Saturday night from Miami Beach police investigating a report of a robbery in the administrative office of a building that houses a nightclub, a gym and a jewelry store, police spokesman Bobby Hernandez said. Robbins was inside the office and had a "violent struggle" with detectives before Detective Mike Muley...

  • Angry Robbins takes anti-Bush satire to Venice

    VENICE, Italy (AFP) - US actor Tim Robbins took the film version of his ribald anti-Bush play "Embedded/Live" to the Venice film festival, while audiences delighted in Indian director Mira Nair's colourful adaptation of Thackeray's classic novel "Vanity Fair". Robbin's angry satire about the Bush administration's war in Iraq (news - web sites) and the complicity of the mainstream US media in its reporting from the early days of the war is the polar opposite of Nair's sumptuous examination of race and class. "Embedded" was born as a play in a 30-seat theatre in Los Angeles in July 2003 and...

    Local Boy Made Huge ROBBINS, N.C. — Two days after Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry announced his choice of North Carolina Sen. John Edwards as a running mate, there was little evidence of the event in Edwards' rural, industrial hometown. There were no banners, no balloons, no Kerry-Edwards lawn signs. Although the owner of the Capt. Snipper Salon and Day Spa had put up a hand-lettered poster on the morning of the announcement — "Congradulations to John Edwards" — that poster was gone by the next day. At Amy's Cafe, old men in work-worn clothes sat eating barbecue...

    John Edwards wasn't running for a sophomore term in the U.S. Senate because polls showed he would probably lose. His home turf reveals why he is the political and intellectual equivalent of the smiley-face button. How embarrassing: Moore County is pro-Bush territory and voted against Edwards in 1998. The Los Angeles Times paid a visit and reported today, "There were no banners, no balloons, no Kerry-Edwards lawn signs." "He lives in Raleigh. He doesn't live here," deliveryman Terry Parrott told the pro-Democrat newspaper. "Seems like, in the last couple of years, the only time he's been here was when the...

    Dear Mr. Robbins, I’ve never written to a movie star before—least of all to one who cares as much as you. That I have contempt in my heart for you disturbs me more than you will at first appreciate. Make no mistake about my feelings. Your feeble political satire about the war in Iraq, Embedded, which you’ve also directed at the Public, has been dressed up as a revolutionary statement. Enough is enough. I usually strain to be polite, but there will be no apologies from me this time. I’m no political animal, but I know smugness when I see...
