‘The Oath’ teaser trailer: Film about politics, family and the holidays

The holidays can be difficult enough without adding the often sensitive subject of politics. Generally, it’s advised to completely avoid such topics and continue talking in nonspecific, bland pleasantries.

It’s a win-win for everyone. Makes for a much better time, there’s no hurt feelings, rising blood pressures or elevated tempers.

However, one new upcoming film breaks this rule completely. “The Oath,” starring Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish, is about what happens when politics is interjected amongst family during Thanksgiving, and apparently, takes it to the extreme.

Given the fact that it’s a piece of work produced by Hollywood, it’s likely to take a liberal point of view, blaming conservatives alone for the toxic political climate. However, you never know. I mean crazy things have happened, right?

Anyway, check out the teaser trailer below:

Asia Argento, #MeToo activist, actress accused of paying off 17-year-old sexual assault victim

A huge bombshell dropped Monday morning. One of the women who has accused former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and rape, is now herself accused of being a sexual harasser. Needless to say, #MeToo activist, Actress Asia Argento finds herself on the other side of the movement.

Argento is said to have paid off a then 17-year-old actor after a sexually harassing the teen to the tune of $380,000. Despite the sad, ironic turn of events, what makes this even worse is that at the time of the alleged inappropriate sexual conduct, Argento was 38-years-old. The alleged incident happened in 2013, in a California hotel room.

According to the details of the 2013 incident, once in the California hotel room, Argento supplied the 17-year-old with alcohol, began kissing him and then performed oral sex on him and then proceeded to have sexual intercourse.

Probably the creepiest detail about the entire ordeal? Argento and the then 17-year-old met years ago on the set of “The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things” when he was just a child.

It will be interesting to watch how the media reacts to this. Will they treat Argento like a predator, which, if everything detailed is true, she most certainly is. Will she be ostracized by the entertainment industry like Weinstein and Spacey? Will she be brought up on charges like Weinstein? The simple fact is that rape is rape, sexual assault is sexual assault whether the perpetrator is a male or female. Let’s hope the #MeToo movement recognizes this as well.

If #MeToo is really worth anything at all, Argento will face the same wrath as the men who have done such things. That’s all anyone can really ask. This is a huge moment for #MeToo, will they turn against one of their own or will they sweep it under the rug and hope it just all goes away.

 

Netflix cancels ‘comedian’ Michelle Wolf’s show

Get ready, because abortion-loving, men-hating feminazis have most certainly found their newest cause: accusing Netflix of blatant and obvious sexism.

Why? Well, the streaming service recently aborted “comedian” Michelle Wolf’s program,”The Break with Michelle Wolf.”

Now, you may be asking ‘well, what were the ratings for Ms. Wolf’s show? Did it merit cancellation?’ Both fair and obvious questions, but Netflix doesn’t release ratings for their programming.  So, we’re not sure how poorly the show performed.

But let’s be real for a minute, if people were actually watching her show, do you really think Netflix would’ve axed it? C’mon, Netflix is in the business of making money. Plus, they also canned “The Joel Mchale Show with Joel Mchale,” despite it being a show featuring a white male with a title that just rolls right off the tongue.

If you’ve never caught a second of Ms. Wolf’s program, which apparently, is most of the population, here’s a little bit of some of her best stuff:

Funny, knee-slapping stuff, right? Well, the execs over at Netflix apparently didn’t think so.

But hey, Michelle, just remember, much like your view on abortion, cancelling a show isn’t killing a show, it’s just stopping a show from happening.

 

VIDEO: Trailer for ‘Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer’ drops

Abortion to the left is basically a holy sacrament and any attempts to curb the murder of the unborn are met with hate, anger and often, threats of violence.

However, Kermit Gosnell is someone that not even the most avid abortion supporters are able to defend. As you may remember, Gosnell was an abortionist in Philadelphia, where his office was a veritable house of horrors.

There were blood-covered walls and floors, horrific botched abortions, which lead to the deaths of two women. He even sniped the necks and spines of babies born alive. To say that the details of the Gosnell abortions and abortion clinic are shocking is to put it lightly.

The man was convicted of three counts of murder for severing the spines of children and one count of manslaughter in the death of woman at his illegal clinic. Thankfully, the man will never, ever see the light of day as he was sentenced to three life terms. 

As Hollywood usually does with tragedies and other stories that captivate the national headlines, they turned the Gosnell’s tale of death-inducing procedures and trial into a film. The trial for that film has now hit the internet.

The film, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killerstarring Dean Cain, hits theaters October 18.

Check out the trailer below:

Family says Aretha Franklin is ‘gravely ill’

Things are not looking good for The Queen of Soul. Aretha Franklin’s family says the legendary singer and songwriter is gravely ill.

Apparently, the 76-year-old singer has been sick for awhile, but it’s unclear with what exactly. However, family members are asking for prayers as they are gathered around the singer.

This comes after Franklin canceled a number of concerts on the advice of doctors.

Following news of Franklin’s deteriorating condition, fans and celebrities alike tweeted messages of support and sympathy for Franklin and her family.

Hillary Clinton and Steven Spielberg Team Up to Create TV Series about Women’s Suffrage

Hillary Clinton is about to add executive producer to her resume.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clinton is teaming up with acclaimed director/producer Steven Spielberg to adapt the book by Elaine Weiss called ‘The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote” as either a TV movie or mini series on a cable network.

Clinton will also guest star in the upcoming season of the CBS show Madame Secretary.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Sources say as Weiss was writing the book, she was struck by the parallels between the women’s suffrage movement and the 2016 presidential election between Clinton and Donald Trump. It then became a priority for the author and journalist — whose work has appeared in multiple publications and on NPR — to get her book in Clinton’s hands. Eventually, she met a bookstore owner who delivered The Woman’s Hour to Clinton. The latter, sources say, loved the contemporary and relevant issues the book tackled and felt it would be an important story to tell on TV while also creating strong roles for women. Clinton called her attorney, Robert Barnett at Williams Connolly, and eventually met and hit it off with Weiss before calling frequent supporter Spielberg, who brought in Amblin TV.

Poor Hillary. That crippling loss to Trump is going to haunt her forever, but comparing it to the fight for women’s right to vote? Seems like a stretch.

Despite moaning about losing for the past two years,  she seems to be profiting off of it pretty well. First a bestselling memoir about what went wrong and now landing a high profile job to produce a potential hit TV show?

Sucks to be you, Mrs. Clinton.

Sacha Baron Cohen Pretends to be Disabled Veteran to Prank Sarah Palin

Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedian best known for playing Borat, pulled one over on former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin and her daughter. They flew to Washington D.C. to meet with a disabled military veteran for an interview for what they thought was going to be a documentary by Showtime about American Vets.

Instead, she later learned that after sitting through interviews “full of Hollywood disrespect and sarcasm”, that she’d been pranked by the comedian for his upcoming show on Showtime.

From her Facebook page:

 For my interview, my daughter and I were asked to travel across the country where Cohen (I presume) had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all. Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long “interview” full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm – but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin. The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen’s foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse.

Here is my challenge, shallow Sacha boy: go ahead – air the footage. Experience tells us it will be heavily edited, not pretty, and intended to humiliate.

The challenge is to Cohen, CBS and Showtime: donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets. Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country.

Truly sick.

And as an aside, for further insight into the wealthy corporate enablers of this kind of “joke”, I’ll add that after great costs on our part in time and resources to contribute to their “documentary” the Cohen/CBS/Showtime production team purposefully dropped my daughter and me off at the wrong Washington, DC airport after the fake interview, knowing we’d miss all flights back home to Alaska. After refusing to take our calls to help get us out of the bind they’d put us in for three days, I wrote this off as yet another example of the sick nature that is media-slash-entertainment today.

She’s not the only one who has been duped recently, Dick Cheney also fell victim to the prankster, as did Howard Dean.

The series was announced this week and will begin airing on Sunday, July 15th.
Showtime had no comment on Palin’s statement.
