    You might expect Stan Lee, at age 95, to be enjoying the fruits of his many labors: Marvel Comics, the company he served as the former president and chairman of, dominates popular culture. Characters he co-created — among them Spider-Man, Iron Man, X-Men, and the Avengers — are household names. He’s a comics legend, with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. When Marvel sold to Disney in 2010 for $4 billion, he personally pocketed a cool $10 million, and tours the world as its ambassador emeritus. And midway through his tenth decade, Black Panther, based on a...

    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...

WATCH 23 SECONDS OF HISTORY.In this clip, you will see Hillary at Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills at a 2000 fundraiser. Fifteen years ago was the precursor to the current email scandal. She did not want anyone to have access to her email because of the fear of investigations. The paranoid Hillary had to control the information. We have about an hour on tape from this event. Yes, that is comic...

    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.

    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...

    FRANKFORT — The Kentucky County Clerks Association will propose removing clerks’ names from the document in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage. Overturning the state’s ban on same-sex marriage has prompted Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and two others to deny licenses to all couples, drawing a federal lawsuit against Davis as well as calls to change the licensing process. Leslie County Clerk James Lewis, chairman of the association’s elections committee, told reporters Tuesday that his group is drafting “a simple solution” to the matter. “You would have the county and the county seat listed...

    When I was a young boy, I and Julio—not the one from down by the school yard, but the illegal Guatemalan refugee who lived with us for a while—used to enjoy watching “Wonder Woman” together. I enjoyed seeing a superhero dish out justice. Julio’s motivations may have been a tad different. We are talking Lynda Carter’s incarnation, after all. Of course, this was problematic, and not for the reasons laid out here. Wonder Woman, while a woman, was ostensibly a straight woman. At least I think she was. Again, I was seven years old. But Julio, despite his limited understanding...

    These numbers remind us of the extent to which the continued Jewish commitment to the Democratic Party has become an anomaly. All the other ethno-religious groups that, like the Jews, formed part of the coalition forged by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1930s have followed the rule that increasing prosperity generally leads to an increasing identification with the Republican Party. But not the Jews. As the late Jewish scholar Milton Himmelfarb said in the 1950s: "Jews earn like Episcopalians"—then the most prosperous minority group in America—"and vote like Puerto Ricans," who were then the poorest. Jews also remain far more...

    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. --...

    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...

    Today, Stan Lee, quite possibly the biggest name in comics, was awarded the National Medal of Arts. In the 1960s, Lee built the success of Marvel Comics on the backs of his famous characters: Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, and The X-Men, among many others who are still followed today by millions of fans. Rather than mimic his contemporaries with stalwart, righteous super-heroes, Stan Lee created flawed characters who instantly tapped into the growing pains of his readership. Known for his enthusiastic approach to narration, Lee was his usual chatty, sarcastic self about the award in...
