  • Drama queens screaming “NAZI!” may propel Trump into 2nd term

    06/22/2018 5:39:52 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 35 replies
    I held my nose when I voted for the Donald Trump in 2016, but at the rate things are going now, I will not only happily vote for him in 2020, I will personally do everything I can to get everyone I know to do the same. He is a buffoon when it comes to social media, his personal history is abysmal, and his political naivete is often maddening. But when it comes right down to it, there are very few current issues where I disagree with the direction or the goals of his administration. Execution of that agenda is...

    Hard-up North Korea has so much to gain from denuclearising and becoming part of the civilised world. The hermit kingdom was actually wealthier than the now-affluent South before the Korean War, and is blessed with everything from abundant mineral resources and oil reserves to fertile agricultural land and stunning tourist-friendly beaches, as noted by President Trump. With this in mind, here are 15 industries that could make North Korea very rich indeed. Tourism During their historic summit in Singapore this month, President Trump showed Kim Jong-un a video extolling the virtues of tourism. “They have great beaches,” President Trump told...

    This week actor Robert De Niro wowed the audience at the annual Tony Awards with what many are characterizing as “the most powerful, elegant, and irrefutable argument against the Trump agenda ever uttered by anyone.” De Niro’s brief message consisted of two simple words: “F*ck Trump.” The audience gave him a standing ovation. Tom Perez, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee called De Niro’s statement “simple, but remarkably brilliant. I don’t know why no one else thought of it before now. If we had used this insight back in the 2016 campaign the horrible outcome could’ve been averted. All is...

    The four-minute movie trailer was created to show Chairman Kim the power and glory that could be his if he lays down his nukes. President Trump pitched paradise to Kim Jong Un in a four-minute movie trailer made especially for the summit in Singapore last week, complete with cautionary tale, dramatic musical score and a lot left for the imagination. It features the two men and images of glory and strength: the perfect tease for the chubby millennial ruling North Korea known for killing off family members and playing video games. Kim is like Trump. They love screens and they...

    Personally, I can't wait to see the ads of "Punchy's" tantrum in the upcoming midterm races! They ought to be worth millions of votes I remember as a young teenager going by myself to see “On the Waterfront” at the Whalley Theater in New Haven. I was so mesmerized by the performance of Marlon Brando (30-years old at the time) that it took a dozen more viewings—really, that’s how many times I saw the film, maybe more—before I realized that the greatest actors of the day—Eva Marie Saint, Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger—were also featured in the movie....

    Rob Reiner, a director and longtime advocate for liberal Democratic causes in Hollywood, ripped into Robert De Niro for his “F— Trump” outburst at last Sunday’s Tony Awards, calling the foul-mouthed speech counterproductive. “If you have any interest in trying to preserve the democracy, and put it in the hands of somebody who understands government, who isn’t self-dealing, who cares about this country and the people in this country, then you’re helping Trump,” Reiner said in an interview earlier this week on The Hill’s “Rising” TV show with co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton. “You’re helping Trump by saying ‘F—...

    Dear Robert De Niro, Samantha Bee and other Trump haters: I get that you’re angry. I’m angry, too. But anger isn’t a strategy. Sometimes it’s a trap. When you find yourself spewing four-letter words, you’ve fallen into it. You’ve chosen cheap theatrics over the long game, catharsis over cunning. You think you’re raising your fist when you’re really raising a white flag. You’re right that Donald Trump is a dangerous and deeply offensive man, and that restraining and containing him are urgent business. You’re wrong about how to go about doing that, or at least you’re letting your emotions get...

    Ever since Trayvon Martin’s tragic death, his parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, have been fighting to make sure other families don’t have to experience the same pain as they did. Due to their heavy involvement in gun reform and social justice, Fulton and Martin will reportedly be honored at VH1’s 2018 Trailblazer Honors. Trayvon Martin’s death pushed his parents to the forefront and they have been active in speaking out against gun violence, racial and social injustice and sharing the pain of having to bury a child. In 2012, they founded the Trayvon Martin Foundation to provide advocacy for...

    Star Wars has become a pop-culture phenomenon, Harrison Ford who portrays Han Solor is a very popular one. When one think of Han, we can imagine him quick drawing the iconic blaster pistol. Youtuber Slingshot Channel guy, Joerg Sprave, liked the weapon so much that he made a functioning rubber-band replica. Who knew it was based on the real Mauser C96 which shot a 7.63x25mm (almost a 9mm)? Sprave did a great job of recreating the look of Han’s blaster right down to the weathering marks. Yes, this toy isn't a real gun, but if you’re a fan of Star...

    South Korea maintains a quick response team in Singapore to coordinate with the United States and North Korea and inform the media of Seoul's position. Nam Gwan-pyo, deputy director of the presidential office's National Security Office, has joined Suh Hoon, director of the National Intelligence Service (NIS) in Singapore ahead of the June 12 summit. Nam is also accompanied by Lee Do-hoon, as special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs. Besides them, at least two working-level public relations and one security-related presidential aide are in Singapore. They are to brief Korean reporters on the outcome of the summit....

    Robert De Niro got a standing ovation at the Tony Awards for shouting “F— Trump” from the stage to the crowd at Radio City Music Hall. But viewers at home didn’t hear the expletive thanks to the 10-second delay CBS had on the live telecast and the quick reflexes of a CBS Program Practices executive monitoring the show back at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York. CBS confirmed that De Niro went off script in his remarks as he took the stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen’s performance on the Tony telecast.

    He and the network reportedly clashed over a “Black-ish” episode that addressed NFL players protesting during the national anthem. Kenya Barris, the creator of ABC’s “Black-ish,” on Wednesday questioned why the network chose to reboot comedian Roseanne Barr’s show in the first place, given her history of promoting conspiracy theories alongside racist, transphobic and Islamophobic tweets. After praising ABC president Channing Dungey and Disney CEO Bob Iger for acting swiftly to end Barr’s show last week after she posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, longtime adviser to former President Barack Obama, Barris noted that network executives should have known...

    It is the integrity, professionalism and decency of the media of the day that is seriously MIA No matter how outlandishly mainstream and social media try to spin their latest yarn, Melania Trump is not, and was never, Missing in Action (MIA). It is the integrity, professionalism and decency of the media of the day that is seriously MIA. The sharks of mainstream and social media hungrily need Melania in plain sight, so that they can take vicious potshots at her even as she recuperates from her 3-week-old benign kidney embolisation procedure.

    So we’re supposed to believe that a Chick-fil-A hating, socialist loving, foul-mouthed former Hillary and Bill Clinton supporter, and 9/11 Truther who once sang the worst rendition of our National Anthem in the history of our nation—afterwards grabbing her crotch and spitting (even Keith Olbermann was critical)—is someone who accurately represents Trump voters. Of course The New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC would have us believe that this is the case. If only the real Roseanne were more like the TV version. … As even the most elementary efforts to examine her personal and political past reveal, Roseanne Barr is...

    Experts testifying before Congress don’t typically start by describing the insights they’ve gained from a backed-up toilet. But when Reality TV star Mike Rowe appeared before the Senate committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation in 2011, he detailed two incidents involving malfunctioning commodes. When he was 12, he saw everything that went down the toilet reappear “in a rather violent and spectacular fashion,” Rowe recalled. His grandfather—Rowe describes him as a blue-collar magician who “woke up clean and came home dirty most of his life”—quickly ascertained the problem. What followed was an entire day of digging in the front yard,...
