    President Vladimir Putin signed off Thursday on a decree granting Russian citizenship to American action hero actor Steven Seagal, the latest high-profile passport handout to a Western celebrity. Hollywood star Seagal and judo-loving Kremlin tough guy Putin have struck up a bromance in recent years, with Seagal visiting Russia repeatedly and defending Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. “He was asking quite insistently and over a lengthy period to be granted citizenship,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists. …

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio, at once hailed and reviled as America’s toughest sheriff, sauntered into famously liberal Hollywood on Wednesday, traveling hundreds of miles from his home turf and disconcerting legal problems in Arizona to promote a documentary that offers, at best, an unflattering portrayal of his troubled 21 years in office. Mr. Arpaio took the filmmaker’s invitation to attend the documentary’s screening at the Beverly Hills Film Festival as a chance for vindication, his shot at setting straight a record he only selectively embraces. Pink underwear for inmates held in the jails he oversees in Maricopa County? “There’s nothing degrading...

    Action movie star Steven Seagal as Arizona governor? Um, no. Despite how a question by a Phoenix reporter has been hyped by the national media, Seagal says he “would remotely consider” it, but has “a lot more other responsibilities that may be more important to address.” But Seagal did strongly defend Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio against absurd leftist charges of "racism", and said the top issue facing the U.S. now is our wide open border.The 61-year-old actor made the comments while promoting the latest season of his reality show Steven Seagal—Lawman: Maricopa County. In the show, Seagal joins forces with Arpaio...

    American action film star Steven Seagal will become the face of a new Russian firearm, the actor announced at a Moscow news conference Friday. Seagal also used the occasion to practice some local phrases, give two thumbs up to the Russian army and criticize the weapons used by President Vladimir Putin's bodyguards. The U.S. actor has established friendly relations with Putin, who shares a penchant for martial arts with Seagal, and Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov. One of Putin's associates, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, asked the American star earlier this year to lobby for easing restrictions on the sale of...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has enlisted Hollywood action man Steven Seagal to help him promote a return to Soviet-era fitness. The unlikely pair opened a new martial arts center outside Moscow on Wednesday, reports Reuters, to kick off Putin’s attempt to bring back a mass physical training program first introduced in the 1930s under Joseph Stalin. The revival of the GTO system (an acronym in Russian which translates as “Ready for Work and Defense”) could bring major benefits to the country, said Putin, according to a transcript published on the Kremlin’s official website: ... “Putin and Seagal have long been...

    Facing a federal lawsuit accusing "America's toughest sheriff" of failing to cooperate in a Justice Department investigation into allegations of discrimination in his arrest of illegal immigrants, Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Wednesday unveiled a new armed "Immigration Posse" to combat illegal immigration in Arizona.   Sheriff Arpaio, who heads the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Phoenix, said the new armed posse --- which includes Hollywood actors Steven Seagal, Lou Ferrigno and Peter Lupus --- could help his deputies enforce immigration laws in the state. But, more importantly, he said the new posse "would provide a means by which citizens could...

    Pellicano did work directly with one president: during Bill Clinton's first presidential campaign Pellicano was hired, reportedly by Hillary Clinton, to discredit Gennifer Flowers, the woman who alleged that she had maintained a 12-year affair with the candidate. Six years later, with Clinton into his second term, the White House, according to the New York Post, hired Pellicano, considered a respected forensic audio specialist, to look into Monica Lewinsky's background. Another report places Pellicano, who was hired by OJ Simpson before the murder of Nicole Simpson, outside her house on the night that she was killed... Anthony Pellicano has worked...

    OK. I have not done a vanity in months, maybe longer. But I just had to get the word out on just how far Steven Segal has sunk. His latest movie, 'Submerged,' is some Euro production. And the US forces portrayed in the movie are a joke. But the biggest joke is the use of a carrier that is called the USS Clinton! Avoid this movie at all costs. Its garbage. Did I mention Segal has adopted a 'home boy' accent? Did anybody think Segal was a Clinton suck up, or is this the European production company gone wild with...

    Anthony Pellicano, the high-profile private investigator whose clients included some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, was charged today with conspiracy and making threats against a Los Angeles Times reporter. Anita Busch was researching a story in 2002 about the relationship between actor Steven Seagal and a reputed Mafia figure when someone fired a bullet through the windshield of her unoccupied car. Left on top of the vehicle was a dead fish with a rose in its mouth and a sign reading: "Stop." The charges today were filed by Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley after a lengthy investigation...

    When I was asked to write an article about being chosen as Sea Gal of the Year, I immediately agreed. However, it took me a while before I was actually ready to start writing. You see, what this means is truly quite difficult to put into words. The Sea Gal of the Year Dinner was held on Friday, December 19th in a beautiful ballroom at Carillon Point in Kirkland. This dinner is so special to us because it comes at the very end of a journey that was started back in May. Such a tremendous amount of hard work and...
