    Lena Dunham got a lot of attention last year when she appeared in public looking svelte. Now the actress has said she is heavier and happier. The "Girls" star posted a split image of herself Wednesday showing her at 138 pounds in the past and now at 162 pounds. The 24 pounds has made a difference, Dunham said. (HILARIOUS-TWEET-AT-LINK) "On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work," the caption on the photo read. "Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only...
  • On 'The View,' Meghan McCain defended Trump voters to the point of exhaustion: 'I literally can't'

    The View is known for its heated discussions, but they’re usually between the liberal Joy Behar and conservative Meghan McCain. On Friday, McCain argued with conservative commentator Tara Setmayer, who said some Trump supporters are in a “cult” because they believe his every word. McCain quickly interjected, “Please stop saying that, please stop saying that.” Setmayer replied with “I stand by it. … There’s a large group of people who blindly follow what this man says. … That is a cult!” (VIDEO-AT-LINK) McCain noted that Setmayer previously made a similar “cult” quip about the GOP. Only two weeks ago on...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 7/14/18 | Jim Bray
    Sam Raimi's The Quick and the Dead is an interesting yarn featuring some tight writing and fine performances from an ensemble of very good thespians. It also sports a really good 4K HDR transfer that makes it even better. The Western drama stars Sharon Stone (who also co-produced), Gene Hackman, Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio. All are, or were, gunslingers who congregate in a nondescript one-horse town called Redemption for a gunfighting competition in which all comers shoot it out with whoever challenges them, the winner taking home a huge pot (well, chest) of money. Stone is a woman bent...

    Kim Jong Un put potatoes ahead of Mike Pompeo during a US visit to agree denuclearisation details, state media has suggested. The US secretary of state visited Pyongyang on Friday and Saturday in an attempt to agree details of a deal made during June's historic summit between Donald Trump and the North Korean dictator. However Mr Kim has not been seen in public for seven days, with every official move usually documented by news agency KCNA. During Mr Pompeo's trip relations between the US and North Korea appeared to take a dive as Pyongyang accused the US of a "gangster-like...

    While one “Game of Thrones” chapter is closing, another may be opening. “Game of Thrones” characters have been bidding farewell to their beloved characters as filming for the eighth and final season wrapped this summer. But fans are optimistic about a prequel to the hit HBO show, which is reportedly set to film in Northern Ireland in October. According to the Belfast Telegraph, filming for the new show will take place at Paint Hall studios in Belfast, where the original “Game of Thrones” series was shot. “This is fantastic news for everyone at the studio - from the cast and...

    If there’s one celebrity the leftist media needs to stop taking seriously, it’s Tom Arnold. The actor and comedian already proved his misogyny by attacking conservative pundit Candace Owens in a vulgar rant. He also recently threatened to show up at Barron Trump’s school. Barron Trump — the president’s youngest child — is 12 years old. Arnold is 59 years old. Though he’s proved his low level of rhetoric time and time again, the Hollywood liberal continues to be taken seriously by the mainstream media. He has an upcoming anti-Trump show on Vice and he’s appeared on both CNN and...

    Despite pledging last month to visit immigrant children housed at the border, signs of Stormy Daniels’ trip have yet to emerge. Instead, the adult film star was spotted shaking her money maker at a South Texas strip club in front of curious onlookers. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claimed June 21 she planned to visit immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. “I am headed down in a week,” she tweeted in response to one Twitter user’s plea to aid the immigrant minors. “Don’t worry. Just figuring out my best course of action to maximize...

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of forcing the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for the headlines. “Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines,” Scarborough wrote. He added: “In the process, he gave legitimacy to the most oppressive communist regime on the planet, further damaged the United States and made himself look like a fool.” He also included a link to a Washington Post article that read, in part: “In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult,...

    The Hill ^ | July 7, 2018 | John Bowden
    President Trump is slated to announce his highly anticipated pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court on Monday night after narrowing down a list of potential nominees to just three likely names. As the president prepares to make his selection, which comes less than four months before the midterm elections, conservative activists are publicly urging him to consider a number of picks that look likely to push the balance of the court toward conservatives for decades. Trump has reportedly narrowed his list of seven interviewed candidates to just three federals appeals court judges: Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge...
  • Joy Reid Blog Post Attacked Wolf Blitzer for Being Too Soft on Jews

    The National Review ^ | June 1, 2018 | Mairead McArdle
    In a post on her now-defunct blog, MSNBC anchor Joy Ann Reid attacked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer for treating Jewish guests with too much understanding. Blitzer is a “former flak for the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC),” reads the post from July 16, 2006. “He doesn’t even try to hide his affinity for his Israeli guests, or his partisanship for their cause, while turning instantly to prosecutorial mode when questioning any guest who has the dumb luck to be an Arab or Muslim in King Blitzer’s court,” Reid continues. “It’s actually quite stunning how brazen Blitzer’s bias has become.” In...

    Unless one has lived in a cave for the past couple of years, the majority of Americans are fully aware of this story, as depicted in the best-selling book and popular movie by the same name, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of BenghaziFrom the book: “Against overwhelming odds, Mark ‘Oz’ Geist, Kris ‘Tanto’ Paronto, John ‘Tig’ Tiegen, Jack Silva, Dave ‘Boon’ Benton, and Tyrone ‘Rone’ Wood went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.” I have personally had the honor of meeting with Oz, Tig, Tanto and...

    Let's say I wanted a rifle, chambered in 5.56, with a 16-inch barrel, and I wanted it to be about the same size as an SMG. Well, look no further, the Austrian Steyer AUG fits that need. The Steyr AUG is a bullpup rifle that manages to pack a lot in a little space. It does this by placing the action behind the trigger group. This includes the magazine, bolt, and ejection port. What the engineers at Steyr did was create a simple rifle, that incorporated a 16-inch barrel in a gun the same size as an SMG. Seriously, let’s...

    SPOILER ALERT: This article reveals several key plot points from the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. If you haven't seen the movie, please beware. In 1977, George Lucas revolutionized not only film but the entire entertainment industry with Star Wars. But, 40 years later, Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) isn't a revolution. A revolution is when the oppressed overthrow the oppressor, the old are replaced by the new, giving rise to new countries and concepts. The Last Jedi doesn't change the boundaries established by Star Wars in its story, expression (technique and design) nor how its business operates....

    Roseanne Barr is already plotting her comeback after a racist tweet comparing Barack Obama senior advisor and businesswoman Valerie Jarrett to a monkey got her booted off the air. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barr is claiming she’s already had booking offers and one may be in the works. Speaking on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast, Barr hinted at a return to the small screen. “I’ve already been offered so many things, and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see,” she said. ABC is currently working on...

    Newly crowned RuPaul’s Drag Race champion Aquaria truly broke out in Season 10 when she won the “Snatch Game” challenge with her SNL-level impression of Melania Trump — thus proving that she has comedic chops behind her stunningly Instagrammable, lookbook-ready ensembles. (“Any hole is a goal” has now officially entered the Drag Race lexicon alongside other popular catchphrases like “halleloo,” “water off a duck’s back,” “purse first,” and “hieeeeee!”) But it turns out the 22-year-old former NYC club kid (real name: Giovanni Palandrani) thought the first lady was much better comedy fodder a couple of pre-election years ago — when...

    Protests are peaceful until the violence begins. Which is why a “peaceful protest” is often a historic event in the media’s eyes. Now the former Mr. Roseanne Barr, Tom Arnold calls for attacks on Trump children and Murdoch family children in order to protest the President’s policies. Read that again, Arnold calls for attacks on Trump and Murdoch family children because of politics. The doofus who became someone because he married well is threatening the President and his family. Not since John Wilkes Booth has an actor been so vile. Coincidentally one President sought to end slavery which the elite...

    A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay ripped President Donald Trump in a Wednesday tweet in response to the president’s taunting of Democrat firebrand Maxine Waters. DuVernay jumped to Twitter to call Trump a “mistake of history.” “You have no sense of self outside of the disparagement of others,” DuVernay tweeted. “You project your weakness onto others. You are of no substance. You will go down in history as a mistake. A mistake that unified many, reminding us of the best in ourselves by being a violent example of the worst.”(continued)

    CNN commentator Angela Rye didn’t mince words Tuesday when she criticized Democratic bigwigs Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for their rebuke of recent comments from fellow Democratic lawmaker Maxine Waters. Rye, a former Congressional Black Caucus adviser, bumped heads with Trump official Steve Cortes during what began as a discussion on House Speaker Paul Ryan’s call for Waters to apologize for her statements encouraging people to harass members of President Donald Trump’s administration. The Congresswoman’s comments not only angered Republicans but sparked criticism from some Democrats, too. Rye was quick to point out the hypocrisy of the situation, arguing that...
