    NOTE TO ADMIN MOD: this is not a commercial solicitation. I have no expectations of selling the item for $37,500. The point is to expose the story. After three false FEC returns, the FEC gave Hillary an immunity agreement and ordered her to file a fourth report. She filed a fourth false report and the crime thus continues. FREEPERS --- please ask questions on the item and allow me to tell the story and further skewer her. I hope this story can make the news. Thanks. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Bill Clinton signed directors chair seatback from concert that evidenced a crime Hillary...

    Spider-Man has many powers: Wall-crawling, web-slinging… and race-bending. According to a story posted by The Wrap, 19-year-old Disney Channel star Zendaya is set to play Mary Jane Watson in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, a re-reboot that will see young British actor Tom Holland as a high school-aged Peter Parker. This is a great idea. It’s 2016, why couldn’t – or shouldn’t – Spidey have a love interest who isn’t white? And many people agree, with Twitter and Facebook full of responses from folks who think a black Mary Jane is a fantastic choice. But, as always, there are pockets of...
  • Marvel Turns Donald Trump Into Comic Book Villain (Spiderman Annual #1)

    Marvel Comics has once again taken aim at Donald Trump, this time by making him the arch-villain in a new issue of Spiderman spinoff series Spider-Gwen. In Spider-Gwen Annual #1 — which centers on an alternate universe in which Peter Parker’s girlfriend, Gwen Stacey, was the one bitten by a radioactive spider — the villainous Modok bears more than a striking resemblance to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. In the new comic, Modok is now M.O.D.A.A.K. (Mental Organism Designed as America’s King), a giant-headed villain who plans to rule the world. “If America will not act… M.O.D.A.A.K. must!” the character...

    FELONIES ADMITTED ON TAPE On 4-10-2006 I had the opportunity to speak on the phone with legendary comic book icon Stan Lee. He again confirmed what is on the attached sworn deposition. HE GAVE NO MONEY TO HILLARY'S CAMPAIGN AND HER FOURTH AMENDED FEC REPORT WAS FALSE. In Sept 2007 I drove to the Federal Bldg in West Los Angeles and presented evidence to a field agent. No further action was taken against Hillary.

    It's the moment all Marvel fans have been waiting for. Spider-Man has finally made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the final trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Released on Thursday, the new two-and-a-half minute clip closes with the much anticipated face-off between Chris Evans' Cap and Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man.

    Start at about the 4 minute mark. Stan Lee admits to laundering a 100K check to Hillary's campaign. He swore under oath that he gave no money, yet Hillary lied about that in four false FEC reports, the last of which was after she was given a conciliation and immunity agreement and agreed to file an accurate report. She had him as her largest donor, rather than the 1.2 mil given by Peter Paul and his companies. That 1.2 number was what the FBI presented in court during the criminal trial of David Rosen, Hillary's sacrificial campaign finance director. I...

    For the second time in recent months, a giant sea creature has washed ashore in California. First it was a rare oarfish that had grown to a freakish 100-foot length. This time it was a giant squid measuring a whopping 160 feet from head to tentacle tip. These giants look different but experts believe they share one important commonality: they both come from the waters near the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant in the Futaba District of Japan. Scientists believe that following the 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant an unknown number of sea creatures suffered genetic...

    Your new book is called ‘‘A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America.’’ A few months ago you were in the news for warning a little girl that ‘‘the world is on fire.’’ Do you believe setting things on fire is good or bad? Both. I am a passionate believer in the fire of liberty. Indeed, I have encouraged young people to become arsonists, spreading the fire of liberty. Now that said, the world being on fire is not a good thing.

    Peter Parker and his alter ego Spider-Man must be heterosexual and Parker must be Caucasian, according to a legal licensing agreement between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment. The information was disclosed in a massive document release by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, which released this week 276,394 private files, emails and financial data onto its servers. Sony Pictures and Marvel reps declined to comment on the licensing agreement, first reported by the Gawker website. The contract went into effect in September 2011. It lists “mandatory” character traits for both Peter Parker and Spider-Man — and the agreement includes the caveat that Spider-Man...

    A team of researchers working in Italy has found that simply spraying a spider with a carbon nanotube solution can cause the spider to spin stronger webs. In their paper they have uploaded to the preprint server arXiv, the team describes their experiments with both graphene and nanotube solutions and what happened when they sprayed it on ordinary spiders. As the researchers note, while silk production using silkworms has been quite successful, doing the same to harvest silk from spiders has not, (because of their territorial traits, the complex nature of the silk they make and their cannibalistic tendencies) which...

    Spider-Man will appear in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film and Marvel is coming on board to produce future “Spider-Man” films with Sony, the two studios announced Monday. Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago.

    Actor Andrew Garfield may be booted from the Spider-Man movie series, according to the latest revelation from hacked emails at Sony. The correspondence reveals that Sony - which was reportedly already not happy with Garfield - might give up the franchise to comic book giant Marvel. It is believed that Marvel would prefer to start the series from scratch, putting Garfield's role as Peter Parker, which he has played in two movies, in jeopardy.

    Does a Supreme Court Ruling Mean Disney Will Lose 'Spider-Man' Rights? 11:58 AM PDT 5/21/2014 by Eriq Gardner Once rejected for not suing soon enough, the company challenging Disney's hold on the character thinks it's no longer precluded from moving forward in court. Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the daughter of an author to sue over rights to the Martin Scorsese film Raging Bull. The film is undoubtedly a classic, but its continued commercial prospects are limited. Unlike, say, Spider-Man and the many comic creations of Stan Lee. Now, the owners of Stan Lee Media Inc. --...

    In an interview with Entertainment Weekly released on Wednesday, The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield suggested that he’d like to play Peter Parker as a young man exploring his bisexuality. According to Garfield, he told producer Matt Tolmach that he’d like MJ – Mary Jane – to be a boy. “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he said. “And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?” He...

    For the last few years Michael Wolk has quietly worked to advance the multi-billion dollar copyright infringement lawsuit that claims Walt Disney Co. does not own the rights to iconic Stan Lee-created superhero characters it acquired from Marvel Entertainment, like Spider-Man, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk and The Fantastic Four. Before Wolk got involved, the minority shareholders of a company Lee founded in the 1990s had for a long time unsuccessfully litigated over these characters, but Wolk has not been dissuaded. “We are in the right here,” says Wolk in an interview. “No court has ever addressed or ever decided who...

    For nearly two centuries, musket balls, canister shot and other artifacts from intense fighting at Caulk's Field waited to tell the story of a sweltering August night in 1814, when militiamen sprang a trap on a British raiding party bent on destruction. How did the citizen-soldiers best their battle-tested foes? State archaeologist Julie Schablitsky hopes to figure that out. With the help of cadaver-sniffing dogs and history buffs armed with metal detectors, she is retracing the footsteps of Sir Peter Parker, a British marine captain who led 170 troops, and a like number of militiamen commanded by Col. Philip Reed....

    The sidewalk vendors of Times Square sell cheap metal signs bearing the image of Spider-Man, no doubt unaware that the superhero’s co-creator walks right past them every day, completely unrecognized. Then again, only a handful of people in the world would recognize Steve Ditko, the mysterious 84-year-old artist who, with writer Stan Lee, dreamed up the wall crawler back in 1962. ...When The Post knocked on his door, Ditko — who turns out to be a owlish man with wisps of white hair and ink-stained hands, wearing large black glasses and an unbuttoned white shirt with a white tee beneath...

    Five foreign men were arrested during a courthouse break-in early on Wednesday and police said they found photographs of public buildings, water systems and malls from various U.S. cities in their van. The men, at least three of whom were in their 20s, will be questioned by a joint terrorism task force including the FBI and immigration authorities, officials said. Bexar County spokeswoman Laura Jesse said three men were found inside the 120-year-old Bexar County Courthouse, a landmark in downtown San Antonio and two in a large recreational vehicle parked in front of the building. She said all five were...
