    Its Tuesday in Australia where Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull survived a vote of confidence as Liberal Party caucus met just 24 hours after Turnbull backed down on part of an energy policy he announced last week. Turnbull abandoned a plan setting targets for carbon emissions opposed by many caucus members. The Liberal Party has also been reeling from defeats in recent by-elections for lower house seats in Parliament. Mr. Turnbull was able to survive a challenge from Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton winning 48-35 in the caucus meeting. A win for Turnbull but a narrow one in the context of...

    SALISBURY, MA -- Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, is making one of her first Massachusetts appearances next month since claiming she was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair with President Donald Trump. The adult film actress will appear at Kittens Gentlemen's Club in Salisbury on September 7 and 8. Daniels announced the appearance in a post on Twitter. "We just had Bridget the Midget there so when we took her sign down, we put her's (Daniels) up," club owner Kevin Moury told the Eagle-Tribune, which first reported this story. "We're looking forward to it." While the...

    “I think that it would be handled very beautifully by me,” he said on “Howard Stern Show” in 2005p> Following reports that there are recordings of Donald Trump using racial slurs on “The Apprentice,” a 2005 radio interview with Howard Stern has resurfaced where Trump proposed setting “nine blacks against nine whites” on the show. “There was a concept thrown out by some person… nine blacks against nine whites,” Trump said on “The Howard Stern Show.” “And it would be nine blacks against nine whites, all highly educated, very smart, strong, beautiful people right?” he continued, asking Stern if he...

    It's claimed the adult star, 39, believes she is in danger after revealing her alleged affair with US president Donald Trump. She also fears pulling out of Celebrity Big Brother this week has made her more of a target. A source close to the star told The Mirror: "She feels like everyone seems to be against her — Trump fanatics, his aides and even her own fans who will miss out on her appearing on the show." And they insisted Stormy wasn't interested in money. "It's not the money she is worried about — it's her safety," they said. The...

    The world watched as Trayvon Martin’s parents lived the nightmare of not only losing their teenage son, but also facing the reality that his killer was being set free on bail less than 3 months after being arrested for the murder. In episode 3 of Paramount’s Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, we hear from Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin as they take us through their pre-trial court appearances and other happenings leading up to the trial of George Zimmerman. In the opening scene of the episode, Trayvon’s mother draws parallels between herself and the mother of Emmet Till...

  • When Did Donald Trump become a Racist?

    The Philadelphia Tribune ^ | August 17, 2018 | Raynard Jackson
    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...
  • Tom Arnold Goes 'Crazy' on 'Kimmel,' Swears Mark Burnett and Donald Trump Know N-Word Tape Exists

    "Oh, I remember this tape I saw, and I described it exactly," Arnold tells Kimmel. "He says the n-word. He calls Eric [Trump] the r-word." Tom Arnold was all over the place during a frantic and "crazy" interview with Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night, but all of his manic energy was aimed directly at Donald Trump. The stand-up comedian has long been one of Trump's most vocal opponents, and he's been one of the loudest voices demanding the release of the so-called "n-word" tape that allegedly exists and contains the president using the derogatory term during his "Apprentice" years. Arnold insists...

    The man who destroyed Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star wants a gold star. Last month, a man carrying a pickaxe smashed the star into smithereens. On Wednesday, that man pleaded not guilty to felony vandalism charges, writes The Hollywood Reporter, and said he "only wanted to bring about positive political change." "I don't personally think that there should be any charges brought against me," he told reporters outside the Los Angeles courthouse. "Because what I did, I believe, was a rightful and just act." Trump's star was previously pulverized by a different pickaxe-wielding individual in 2016. The alleged vandal,...

    Former “Celebrity Apprentice” star Penn Jillette had the perfect opportunity to smear President Donald Trump in a recent Vulture interview titled, “In Conversation: Penn Jillette Talking magic, truth, and Trump’s alleged Apprentice Tapes.” As the name implies, the interview was, by and large, a probe for damaging information about Donald Trump, namely Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s claim that there is a tape of him using the N-word on “Celebrity Apprentice.” As Glenn noted on Wednesday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Jillette is no fan of Trump. And yet, after saying he was “in the room” and had overheard Trump saying...

    On The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Omarosa Manigault Newman made sure to tread lightly when speaking of recordings she made during the Trump campaign and her time at the White House regarding racial epithets, among other things. Omarosa has been very open recently talking about why she made the tapes, citing widespread corruption throughout the administration while promoting her new book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House. Besides promoting the book, Omarosa has also been releasing bits of her recordings, and in turn, Trump has been releasing tweets, calling her a “crazed, crying lowlife” and a...
  • Hogan's Heroes

    08/14/2018 8:21:22 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 123 replies
    YouTube is such a time capsule. When I was growing up, one of the shows my father used to watch was "Hogan's Heroes." I had not actually watched the show since the early 1970s so the show itself was long forgotten but the theme music was always a bit of an earworm, popping up randomly in my head from time to time during the decades since. About a week ago, I noticed that entire episodes of Hogan's Heroes was on YouTube and decided to click on one. As the opening credits played, everything was instantly recognizable to me even though...

    Penn Jillette is claiming that President Donald Trump made “racially insensitive” remarks during his time on Celebrity Apprentice, which were captured on tapes that still exist. Jillette, a professional magician who appeared on season 12 of the NBC reality series, confirmed to Vulture in a new interview that series creator Mark Burnett has tapes of Trump making the controversial statements. Burnett did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Trump “would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable. I don’t think he ever said anything in that room like ‘African-Americans are inferior’ or anything about rape or grabbing women,...

    DAVID GREENE, HOST: When the U.S. reimposed sanctions on Iran earlier this month after pulling out of the nuclear deal, it was just the latest in a long saga of tensions between the two countries. And often, when those tensions flare up, we call on Dutch journalist Thomas Erdbrink to get the view from Iran. He's the Tehran bureau chief for The New York Times, and he's one of the few Western journalists living in Iran. I often leave our brief interviews with Thomas wanting to know more about him and his life there, and now we will get the...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” host Nicolle Wallace said Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s comments about changing American demographics was “articulating and embracing a racist ideology.” Wallace said, “You know what needs to happen? A Republican with a body part I won’t say should find a body part I will say, a spine, and call on all Republicans to boycott Laura Ingraham’s program until she apologizes for articulating and embracing a racist ideology like disparaging legal immigration.” She continued, “That is a bridge I have never heard championed by Republicans, never. John McCain as a candidate attacked one of his own...

    The Boston Globe is spearheading a coordinated effort to fight back against President Donald Trump’s “dirty war against the free press,” according to the Associated Press. After Trump’s repeated criticisms of the “fake news” media, including calling the media the “enemy of the people,” the Globe is calling for other newspapers to publish editorials denouncing Trump’s attacks on Aug. 16. “The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They...

    Kanye West might have worried a little bit about wife Kim Kardashian West when she visited President Donald Trump. The “Fade” rapper, 41, shared his thoughts on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s visit to the White House in May during a wide-ranging interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night in which the musician spoke about everything from his love of Trump, porn and his Bipolar diagnosis. When Kimmel, 50, asked West how he felt about the reality star meeting Trump on behalf of a 62-year-old great-grandmother who was incarcerated for 22 years, the father...

    The Orlando Sentinel ^ | August 9, 2018 | David Whitley
    Hollywood hates Donald Trump so much it doesn’t consider him worth walking on. That’s fine, but how about a little less preening and lot more consistency? The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution seeking to remove Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s a purely symbolic gesture, since the Walk of Fame is in the City of Los Angeles and is run by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. But the West Hollywood types weren’t going to let such details get in way of some good virtue signaling. The resolution cited Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and...

    Last Week Tonight With John Oliver discussed the president's son, Donald Trump Jr.'s involvement with Russia and how it pertains to the 2016 elections. There have been allegations that Trump Jr. colluded with the Russian government in the tampering of the 2016 presidential election. Oliver responded to The Washington Post report stating President Trump is worried "Trump Jr. inadvertently may have wandered into legal ­jeopardy." Oliver said, "That seems plausible, to be honest. On the long list of 'things Don Jr. Is likely to wander into,' 'legal jeopardy' is right up there with 'the women's dressing room' and 'a screen...
