  • Liev Schreiber Took His Son to Comic-Con Dressed as Harley Quinn

    07/24/2017 8:43:27 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 63 replies
    The San Diego Comic-Con (which, believe it or not, used to actually feature comic books) is an annual celebrity fest these days. One such notable, Liev Schreiber, was in attendance this year, partly to promote, but also to parent. Schreiber took his young sons to the entertainment spectacle this year, both in costume. His oldest son, 9-year-old Sasha, went dressed as a Jedi, and his youngest, 8-year-old Kai, decided to channel the unfettered persona of Harley Quinn. As one would quickly assume, the child’s costume choice and the parent’s willingness to let him go as he pleased, inspired a fair...

    As debate in the nation’s capital has focused on health care, Russia and secret tapes, President Donald Trump’s signature proposal — building a “big, beautiful wall” on America’s southern border — has faded from the spotlight. But preparations are quietly moving forward to start the first wall-related construction on California soil in the next few months, in an effort to translate campaign rally applause lines into cold, hard concrete. Construction is scheduled to begin on four to eight wall prototypes by “late summer,” acting Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said at a recent congressional hearing. They’ll each be 30 feet...

    A lawsuit was filed today to stop the Islamization of students in San Diego public schools. Parents have been fighting this policy for months, to the school board’s deaf ears.

Here is the latest. “Parents sue SD Unified over Islamophobia bullying policy,” by Gary Warth, San Diego Union Tribune, May 23, 2017: San Diego Unified is facing a backlash after some people have assumed an anti-bullying policy to protect Muslim students might mean all students will study the Koran and celebrate Muslim holidays.

    A gunman distraught over a recent breakup calmly reclined in a pool chair as he shot strangers at a birthday party and phoned his ex-girlfriend so she could hear the gunfire and screams of terror, San Diego police said Monday. ...

    Liberals have spent decades screaming about the separation of church and ‘state’, but now they’ve made a huge exception for Islam. The San Diego School District will start having school calendars showing Islamic holidays and begin to teach students about Islam in social studies classes and school district will create safe places on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat ‘Islamophobia’. This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...

    Some Chargers fans were so dedicated to the team that along with wearing Bolts gear, they also sport tattoos inspired by the NFL team. But with the team deciding to move from San Diego to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, many San Diego residents are now calling themselves "former" fans. When the team announced its big move Thursday, some angry fans threw away their jerseys in a growing pile outside of Chargers Park Thursday. One person was even arrested for setting their jersey on fire. Other former fans are now taking their Chargers' gear to the Sports Arena to...

The news broke Wednesday that Chargers owner Dean Spanos has informed NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he is moving the team to Los Angeles, which is pretty much dreadful news for Los Angeles.

    Chargers’ stadium vote fails miserably, clouding future in San Diego A ballot measure in San Diego that would have raised hotel taxes to pay for a new Chargers stadium came up far short of the required two-thirds vote Tuesday, leaving the team with an uncertain future in the city. Measure C, as the initiative was known, would have allowed city officials to raise hotel-room taxes from 12.5 percent to 16.5 percent and use that revenue to pay for a new downtown stadium and convention-center annex next to Petco Park, where the Padres play baseball. But the measure received support from...
