    Chicago has won a legal battle allowing its wasteful “amusement tax” to be levied on everyday people. Residents who enjoy gaming will now have to pay a 9 percent tax for streaming services they buy through Playstation. They also have to pay this 9 percent tax on other streaming services for entertainment like Netflix, Spotify, and Hulu. The amusement tax is one of multiple examples of government using its ability to pick the pockets of the populace to select winners and losers in the market while paying its bills with money that citizens often do not realize they are spending....

    Many get swept into binge-watching a tv show, but a Minnesota woman took the term to a new level in Minnesota. Minnesota State Patrol posted on Facebook about the incident which took place on October 26 on Interstate 94 near the Minnesota-North Dakota border, stating that a woman was involved in a one-vehicle crash because she was watching Netflix on her tablet in the passenger's seat. Minnesota State Patrol Driving and Netflix don’t mix. A motorist found that out the hard way Oct. 26 when she crashed her car on Interstate 94 between Moorhead and Fergus Falls. Numerous callers reported...

    George Soros avoided a loss of more than 17 million dollars by dumping shares of Facebook, Netflix and Goldman Sachs just before the big crash started happening. In other words, he made out like a bandit by selling at the peak of the market. Is he smarter than all the rest of us, did he have some inside information, or was he simply lucky? In recent months, tech stocks have lost approximately a trillion dollars in value, and many investors have been absolutely devastated. But not George Soros. According to the most recent filing with the SEC, Soros Fund Management...

    lleged Nazi collaborator George Soros is best understood by playing him backward. His organizations mean the exact opposite of their names. The Democracy Alliance is a plot to undermine democracy by a handful of wealthy oligarchs and special interests. His Open Society's goal is a closed society. Social media makes it too easy to have an open society. As opposed to a consolidated corporate media. So George Soros allegedly plotted to regulate Facebook until it was as controlled as the media. His war on Facebook, run by astroturfed activists is bearing fruit, with the backing of the media. But Soros...
  • That Coen Brothers movie titled "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"

    11/18/2018 5:14:03 PM PST · by SamAdams76 · 48 replies
    I was out on the Netflix last night and saw this new Coen Brothers movie that was available. I was always a fan of the Coen Brothers with "Fargo" being one of my favorite "dark comedy" movies of all time. I especially liked that car salesman fellow who was constantly screwing up and ended up getting his wife inadvertently murdered by having her kidnapped for ransom by a couple of bungling criminals who hated each other. Basically all their movies are worth watching with "The Big Lebowski" being another favorite. Especially when that John Goodman character throws his friend's ashes...

    The divide between what people actually enjoy and what the Leftist orthodoxy is trying to force people to enjoy has become ever so apparent with the release of She-Ra And The Princesses of Power on Netflix. The cartoon reboot of the popular 1980’s spin-off of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, managed to score a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics while barely scoring 40% from normal viewers. If you visit the Rotten Tomatoes page you’ll see that the show currently has a 40% rating from users while 100% of the critics have given it a high score. If...

    Undoing wrongful convictions takes a killer instinct. Chicago-based exoneration specialist Kathleen Zellner's got it. Her record speaks for itself. Over the past two decades, she has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in America. What's her secret? The Herculean task of untangling official lies, investigative bias, prosecutorial misconduct, ineffective counsel and forensic junk science to free 19 innocent men requires more than intellectual firepower (of which Zellner possesses a chess grandmaster's surplus). The job demands iron will and unshakeable fortitude to beat a system rigged to preserve government errors and protect prosecutions. As the "Survivor" slogan goes: "Outwit,...

    Netflix could soon face legal action from the Satanic Temple, a religious group that claims its copyrighted design of the deity Baphomet was used without permission in the The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In Sabrina—the streaming service’s recently released, spooky rendition of Sabrina the Teenage Witch—the statue of a large goat-headed figure appears as Satan in a handful of episodes. A statue of this figure flanked by two children appears as a centerpiece in Sabrina’s school of witchcraft, the Academy of the Unseen Arts. According to Lucien Greaves, co-founder and spokesperson of the Satanic Temple, this statue appropriated the religion’s...

    Claire Underwood had no problem filling her husband’s shoes. House of Cards’ sixth and final season will air next month, but there was a time when it wasn’t known whether the Netflix political drama would be returning. The series' leading man, Kevin Spacey, who played former president Francis Underwood, was fired from the show last November following allegations of sexual assault, which he has denied.

    “I just started to think about all the privilege I’ve benefited from in this industry, specifically — being a Jew is a bonus, being a girl as comedian when I was coming up. I had every advantage. Every door opened for me,” she said of the inspiration for the project. “When I started to look around at people that don’t have as successful of a career or are working twice as hard to achieve the same things, I started to feel very gross about myself. On a very fundamental level, I wanted to explore it further … [starting] with my...

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    Democracy depends on the ability to end others’ lives before they’re even born, according to one famed feminist. Netflix released a trailer for its new documentary, Reversing Roe, on Sept. 4. The timely teaser for the abortion law film comes during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The film hits computer screens Sept. 13, and appears to include interviews with abortion activists including Gloria Steinem. The trailer gave a sneak peak of her comments. “It’s the basis of democracy, that you control your own body,” she said in the film worried about Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court...

    It appears there has been a recount! As foreshadowed by our August 13 Blind Item, the Kiefer Sutherland drama Designated Survivor — cancelled last May at ABC — has been resurrected by Netflix, with the streamer ordering a 10-episode Season 3. Netflix confirmed the news late Wednesday, while also announcing that Neal Baer (Law & Order: SVU, Under the Dome) has taken over showrunner duties. This marks the series’ fourth showrunner change in two years. To recap: Amy B. Harris (Wicked City) originally served as showrunner on the series (which was created by David Guggenheim), only to be replaced in...

    From the endless mockery of Christianity and Christian beliefs, to the promotion of all kinds of sexual and gender identity exploration among minors and adults alike, to liberal issues like abortion, Netflix’s newest teen dramedy Insatiable is definitely not anything I would have let my kids watch when they were impressionable, teens. The series is rated TV-MA, but it's clear they're aiming for a much younger audience. Since its release August 10, Insatiable has been met with intense scrutiny and criticism by the liberal media, especially for so called “fat-shaming.” But there are so many other disturbing aspects that go...

    Earlier this year, so-called comedian Michelle Wolf was so disgusting during her performance at the White House Correspondents Association dinner that even liberal media outlets said it might possibly be the last dinner they have. During her performance, Wolf used disgusting jokes about abortion that drew criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Now Wolf is paying the price for her disgusting pro-abortion comedy and Netflix is canceling her comedy show after just 10 episodes. At the dinner, attendees were subjected to a vulgar, profane and bullying attack against women, especially personally lambasting pro-life Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders....
