Jeb Bush, GOP Candidates Launch War Mongering, Anti-ISIS Ads (video)

Jeb Bush and other Republican presidential candidates are following the lead of big money GOP political action committees (PAC). They’ve unleashed a torrent of campaign ads capitalizing on the Paris terror attacks. Will war mongering and anti-ISIS sentiment work? The ads all play off the theme of “leadership” and attack President Obama’s handling of the rise of ISIS in the Middle East. While the ads feature GOP candidates, they are being bankrolled by big-money super PACs....

Hillary Clinton Attempts Late Night Schick on Jimmy Kimmel Live (watch!)

Hillary Clinton did her best to look personable and relaxed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night. But she talked at hyper speed and did this strange bobbing and weaving motion in her chair. She came across like Shecky Green when a little Margaret Thatcher might have helped. Thatcher earned the nickname “Iron Lady” as leader of Britain’s Conservative Party and Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990....

Donald Trump Makes Sad Attempt to Lay Baltimore Riot Blame on Obama 12

Donald Trump Makes Sad Attempt to Lay Baltimore Riot Blame on Obama

Donald Trump wasted no time scapegoating President Obama for a violent turn in Baltimore City protests over the death of teenager Freddie Gray. His rant on social media was not only sadly misinformed, but also patently racist and likely to do little to help the situation. “Our great African American President hasn't exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore,” Trump tweeted today (Apr. 28). ...

Obama Shoots Down Kanye West Claim They Talk on the Phone (watch!)

President Obama answered one burning political question last night (Mar. 12) on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He’s not getting advice from Kanye West–on anything–shooting down the rapper’s boast the president has his home number on speed dial. West has never been shy about inflating his own importance, which makes him a perfect match for Kim Kardashian. But his claim the president calls him at home to talk is way over the top....
Yes, President Obama Gets Them Too: Reads Mean Tweets on Kimmel 22

Yes, President Obama Gets Them Too: Reads Mean Tweets on Kimmel

President Obama may be our national leader, but on social media, he’s just like any other celebrity. He gets his fair share, maybe more than his fair share, of mean Tweets, and last night he read a few on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Obama may be the first social media savvy president in the nation’s history. He handled the spot like a pro. He read the Tweets with just the right tone and self-deprecation and even agreed with a few. But, honestly, were these really the meanest Tweets the show could find?...

Sony 'Interview' Ban Put U.S. on Par With Third World Dictatorships 26

Sony ‘Interview’ Ban Put U.S. on Par With Third World Dictatorships

Sony Pictures brief decision to ban the showing of its own film, “The Interview,” put the United States on par with Third World dictatorships that routinely ban Hollywood films for political reasons. Fortunately it reversed its decision. More than 50 countries, including the U.S. and including liberal democracies like Great Britain, have banned Hollywood films over the past 70 years for both political and moral reasons, according to several film sources. This week, Egypt banned “Exodus: Gods & Kings,” because the government claimed it falsely portrayed Jews building the Pyramids....

Amber Heard Poses for GQ Russia; a Political Pawn in Ukraine Conflict?

Amber Heard should spend less time taking selfies and pay more attention to current events. The “Rum Diary” star poses in the Russian edition of GQ magazine, apparently oblivious to Russia’s role in the Ukrainian conflict.

President Obama Met Kanye West, Kim Kardashian on Election Politics!?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West both claim to have met with President Obama two weeks ago and talked about midterm election politics, leading the celebrity duo to Tweet their support for Democratic candidates. Not that it did much good. How the President, who reportedly missed half his national security briefings and misjudged the ISIS threat, found time to meet with West and Kardashian is anyone’s guess. But he clearly must have been desperate. Did he actually think the celebrities could turn out the vote by tweeting to their vapid followers?...

He attended a star-studded bash at the Hollywood home of Gwyneth Paltrow for a fundraiser and attended another fundraiser hosted by real estate mogul Rich Richman....

Angelina Jolie Bows to UK Queen in Slap to American Democracy

Angelina Jolie was photographed bowing to British Queen Elizabeth II today (Oct. 10) after receiving an honorary royal award. But her bow before the monarch irked some patriotic American’s who consider it a slap to our democracy.

Thomas Jefferson ended the tradition of “bowing” by shaking hands when greeting people....
