    On Easter Sunday, Stephen Colbert’s anti-Trump animated cartoon show on Showtime, Our Cartoon President portrays President Trump as desperate to increase his waning support from evangelical voters. In “Church and State” he is caught on an open mic saying to Vice President Mike Pence that he would "cut off God’s penis” if his wife were to become pregnant as Joseph’s wife, the Virgin Mary, did. He also mocks the faith of Christians, wondering, "How do grown adults still worship Jesus?"
  • Question/Observation From New "Homeland" Binge Watcher

    Okay, I recently started binge watching "Homeland" due to getting a Showtime subscription when I turned off my cable TV and switched to Amazon Prime. I just completed watching Season 1 of "Homeland" last night and I noticed several absurdities with the show. However, the biggest absurdity of them all is: HOW DID A VICE-PRESIDENT BECOME SO POWERFUL? The President on the show is invisible so far but Vice-President Walden is so powerful that he can even order drone missile strikes? Really? In what alternate universe does this happen? Ordering military operations by himself is waaaaay above a vice-president's pay...
  • Bozell & Graham Column: Showtime vs. Christianity

    12/16/2017 8:53:41 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | December 16, 2017 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    The Golden Globe Award nominations have been announced, and once again, the Hollywood judges really know how to find the worst junk to honor. Two nominations went to stay-classy Showtime’s program called “SMILF,” for “single mother I’d like to f—.” The show’s lead actress is also its creator and executive producer. Her name is Frankie Shaw and she says she picked this profane title as a “deliberate” feminist move to take back the sexist phrase “MILF” from “male objectification.” Try deciphering that one. Obviously, (CBS-owned) Showtime executives also designed it to nudge people to click on it because they know...

Former CIA agent Mathison (Claire Danes) is back in the first trailer for Showtime’s Homeland season 7, which depicts the show’s heroes and villains alike struggling against an overreaching and civil rights-abusing president.

    Vladimir Putin has been one of the most talked about figures in Russia, and now Showtime is about to release “The Putin Interviews,” a new documentary series where he will sit down for a talk with famed director Oliver Stone.   This is a project Stone has been working on for two years, traveling to Moscow and Sochi more than a dozen times to speak with the Prime Minister of Russia. The trailer shows his most recent talk with Putin this past February, where he gets right down to brass tacks and asks the question every Hillary Clinton supporter...

    Have you been watching Showtime's Homeland? It's deep into jihad-supporting territory. That's nothing new by itself. It's taken a hard turn that way since this season began. Before that, too, but not quite as far as this. The question is, how far? The answer is given by checking who they hired to advise the show: Ramzi Kassem is a Muslim-activist, Gitmo lawyer and columnist for Al-Jazeera. Do you remember when President Obama promised to "close" Guantanamo? Ramzi Kassem opposed those plans because they weren't good enough for the jihadis. To be fair, Obama's plan was always a fraud. Moving Guantanamo...

    Full title: 'Homeland' takes a left turn? New season focuses on Muslim civil rights, female president-elect's CIA battles The Showtime drama "Homeland" has shocked many longtime fans by taking an apparent left turn. The sixth season, which premiered on Sunday [January 15], features former CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) disillusioned by the war on terrorism and returning home to the United States with daughter Frannie to head up a non-profit in Brooklyn that defends American Muslims... Meanwhile, the "Homeland" episode also introduced a female President-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel), who questioned the hard line approach against domestic terror cells...

    It’s always a sad day when someone you admire tremendously, who has entertained and challenged you for years lets you down and reveals themselves to really stand up only for themselves instead of the ideas of freedom they claim to support. Reason Magazine highlights some deeply discouraging remarks from Penn Jillette, the libertarian co-host of the extraordinarily great Showtime show “Penn and Teller’s Bullsh*t”: Are there any groups you won’t go after? We haven’t tackled Scientology because Showtime doesn’t want us to. Maybe they have deals with individual Scientologists—I’m not sure. And we haven’t tackled Islam because we have families.

    Washington Post ^ | 21 Oct 15 | Michelle Ye Hee Lee
    This Trump brag line goes like this: He had the vision and foresight to oppose the Iraq War ahead of the invasion in 2003. His opposition was so vocal, and his reach so great, that the White House approached him and asked him to tone it down. Really? We examined the slim evidence. The Facts At The Fact Checker, we place the burden of proof on the speaker. Trump has not responded to repeated requests by us or other media outlets for proof of his early opposition to the invasion. Military action began on March 20, 2003. An extensive review...

    Southwest Airlines is among the major corporate sponsors of the 2015 “Creating Change” conference, an annual event drawing thousands of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, “queer” and “kink” (sadomasochistic) activists from across the country. The massive gathering of LGBTQueer activists opens today in Denver and includes a screening of a documentary film celebrating a “gay”-authored play casting “Jesus” as a homosexual. The documentary, “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” celebrates the 1998 play “Corpus Christi,” by homosexual playwright Terrence McNally, in which “Joshua,” representing Jesus Christ, is cast as a homosexual who as a teenager had homosexual sex with Judas (who later becomes...
  • Major corporations funding “gay” indoctrination in elementary schools across America.

    It's every parent's nightmare, but true: Major U.S. corporations are funding a campaign of sophisticated, psychologically intrusive "gay" indoctrination programs targeting very young children in elementary schools across America. It’s part of a very well-planned and well-funded effort to reach children as young as possible without their parents’ intervention. The national program, called “Welcoming Schools”, skillfully works on the minds of young children in three ways: (1) Introducing the concept of homosexuality to children. (2) Telling them that homosexuality is normal and natural. (3) Telling them that their parents or friends who portray homosexuality in a less than positive way...

    Time Warner Cable's blackout of CBS continued Saturday, and neither side indicated a resolution of their dispute over fees is imminent. Time Warner dropped CBS Friday in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and several other cities, leaving three million customers without the network's programs. The issue is fees that the cable company pays CBS to air its programs. Each has accused the other of making unreasonable demands ... The CBS stations that went dark are WCBS and WLNY in New York; KCBS and KCAL in Los Angeles; KTVT and KTXA in Dallas; WBZ and WSBK in Boston; KDKA, WPCW-CW in...

    Bryan Zuriff, the executive producer of the Showtime drama Ray Donovan, pleaded guilty in a federal court to his role in gambling operations with suspected ties to the Russian Mafia which took sports bets and ran poker tables for the fabulous people in Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY as reported by the Daily News. Earlier this year the feds indicted 34 defendants for their alleged roles in the gambling schemes, and Zuriff is the first to plead guilty. The 44-year-old degenerate gambler agreed to forfeit $500,000, and faces up to five years in prison when sentenced on November...

It’s all out on the intense interrogation table between Carrie (Claire Danes) and Brody. So now they’re double flipping him, and...

    LOS ANGELES, CA, September 2, 2009 ( - In all of his 16 years defending the rights of Catholics, the President of the Catholic League has "never seen a more defamatory, obscene and vicious show on TV."  League President Bill Donohue was referring to the August 27 edition of the CBS/Showtime program Penn & Teller.  The half-hour show libeled the Catholic Church with impunity, blaming the Church for, as Donohue put it, "every evil in history." Show host Jillette said the "intolerance, greed, paranoia, hypocrisy and callous disregard for human suffering" was the hallmark of the Catholic Church. Others on...

    "And not just atheists," said Bill Donohue during an August 31st Fox News interview. "I’m talking about people who are disaffected Catholics and Protestants who are mutineers within their own religion, trying to change things." It wasn't just "militant, dogmatic" atheists and "disaffected" Christians that the Catholic League president complained about either. Donohue also had a few choice words for magicians Penn & Teller whose Showtime series, Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t!, just ran an episode on the history of the Catholic Church. "This was the most Nazi-like assault,” Donohue said. “The most unrelenting half an hour of bashing I’ve ever...

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on last night’s edition of Penn & Teller’s show. The program aired on Showtime which is owned by CBS: The Nazis couldn’t have done better. Having been in this job for over 16 years, I have never seen a more defamatory, obscene and vicious show on TV. And I mean about any religious or demographic group—not just Catholics. The lies about the Catholic Church, to say nothing of the vile language used by Penn Jillette, were positively astounding. Moreover, it never attempted to be comedic—from the very beginning it advertised the show as payback...
