Heather McNamara (originally played by Lisanne Falk) is a black lesbian; Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) is a male who identifies as gender-queer whose real name is Heath; and Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) has a body like Martha Dumptruck.

It is a film whose emotional force builds progressively through the film; appropriately, its heartbeat maintains a steady, accumulative intensity. The largely unknown cast were all superb.

After denying there was a serial killer behind a rash of disappearances in Toronto’s LGBTQ community, Toronto police charged a 66-year-old man for allegedly murdering two gay men and admitted they believe he’s responsible for several other deaths.
Homicide Detective-Sgt. Hank Idsinga said Bruce McArthur, who works as a self-employed landscape designer was arrested at 10:25 a.m. this morning after significant progress was made in the investigation into the Village disappearances on Wednesday.
Although no bodies were recovered, McArthur was charged with the first-degree murder of Andrew Kinsman, 49 and Selim Esen, 42. Kinsman was last seen on June 26, less than two km away from the Village, a downtown neighbourhood known as a hub to the LGBTQ community. Two months earlier, Esen was last seen one block north of the neighbourhood.
Idsinga said both Kinsman and Esen had a relationship with McArthur formed through dating apps.
Refusing to label McArthur a serial killer, Idsinga said he had no connection to the death of Tess Richey, a 22-year-old who was found dead in an alleyway near Church and Wellesley streets in November.

Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said that in a congressional meeting Wednesday, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly stopped talking about a border "wall" and started talking about a "barrier." In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, the outgoing Congressman also expressed his outrage at Kelly for using the term "chain migration."
Rep. Gutierrez argued that "family-based visas" are necessary because that is "where you unite." The House Dem said an immigrant should be able to eventually bring their whole family -- father, brothers, wife, and children -- with them because "that would be a good thing to have."
"[Kelly said] we need you to end what he calls chain migration which everybody in the room felt very offended by the term," Gutierrez complained. "He said we need to end chain migration which is family-based visas. That is where you unite. That is where, I don't know, I show up and I say you know what, I'd really like my dad because that would be a good thing for me to have as an immigrant. And I my brothers, and I want my wife and children so we can build a family."
Gutierrez said immigrating the whole family to the U.S. is like President Trump inheriting the family business from his father, something that he would hope to pass on to his children one day. He said the Trump family has made "family-based decisions" about their business and said immigrants should be able to do that too.
"I shared with him that I found it extraordinary that the president would say that since he inherited the business from his dad. And he has the business and his children are going to inherit. The Trump family has made family-based decisions on their business. And that is what immigrants want, right?" he said.

From Sir Larry : The Life of Laurence Olivier - 1981
WE didn't know it then," says a woman who was once a schoolmate of Vivien Leigh's, "but then how could we? It was there, though. Vivien would get along fine for a few weeks, a few months—be perfectly normal and friendly and involved in her activities. Then, suddenly, a complete turnaround. Sometimes it would last only a few hours, other times a day or more. But when it happened, we'd see a completely different girl—moody, silent, petulant, rude, often hysterical. None of us understood it, not even the schoolmistresses.
At first we credited it to longing for her family—they were living out in India, you know. But as we got to know her better, we realized that she was quite happy to be at school and didn't seem to miss her family at all.... Knowing what we know today about these things, one would definitely have to say that Vivien was a disturbed young girl, disturbed in some way that she had no control over. Had she been a child today, someone undoubtedly would have taken serious notice and sent her to a doctor to be examined. Who knows what he would have discovered—a chemical imbalance, a genetic defect?....
....Vivien Leigh first glimpsed Laurence Olivier during his stint as Tony Cavendish in Theatre Royal in the fall of 1934. "Viv was entranced by Larry," says one. "She was dying to meet him, but afraid to as well. It was then she realized once and for all that her marriage to Leigh had been a mistake, that she did not love Leigh. She was madly in love with Larry, even if it was only from afar. She used to tell me that she imagined being in bed with Larry instead of Leigh. She went to see Larry in Theatre Royal on eight or nine occasions, matinees, all by herself. Leigh would come home and ask what she'd done that day. She would invent a story about having done something else. Larry became an obsession with her."
Says another, "Vivien might well have become discouraged with her acting and given up the whole idea, as Leigh wanted her to do, had she not become aware of Olivier. But once she became aware of him, there was no stopping her. 'I must become an important actress so that when I meet him we will be equals,' she said once to me. 'Who knows, perhaps we'll marry one day and become the new Lunt and Fontanne. Wouldn't it be fantastic to be another Lunt and Fontanne, and then live in the very house Lynn Fontanne lived in?' That was just one of her fantasies about Olivier. She had many others. When she was reminded that Larry was already married, and to a famous actress, she shrugged it off. She started asking around, asking anyone who had the slightest knowledge of Larry and Jill Esmond, asking what their marriage was like, whether they were happy together, that sort of thing."

He's very high functioning but there was something during our first date where I was like "He seems a little off..." He's very good looking, has a full-time job but works remotely. Our first date went so well. We talked for a few days prior to actually meeting up. It's honestly the best first date I've ever had. Truly. However, even though he didn't seem to act that odd around others in public, just his little 'tics' and actions seemed different. It wasn't a deterrent, though and I actually found it really cute. Again, the date was fucking fantastic overall, so much fun. We go back to his house and I meet a few of his housemates, they make daiquiris for everyone and the night ended up a blast. But even still, around his housemates something was socially different about him. The sex was great, very passionate. The next morning we hang out in his room and I basically asked what's something people don't know about him. He said, "Well, I have Aspergers." and it all connected for me.
ANYWAY, I'm obviously still going to continue dating him because it turns out I guess autism really isn't a thing to care about when looking for a partner. I have no experience dating an aspie, so I'm starting to do my research on it and am learning more and more. It's honestly fascinating how he is with me, with others, his nuances.

Millennial brat channels Donald Trump and screeches back at Ashleigh Banfield
It's an unequivocal no from me. The way your colleague Ashleigh (?), someone I'm certain no one under the age of 45 has ever heard of, by the way, ripped into my source directly was one of the lowest, most despicable things I've ever seen in my entire life. Shame on her. Shame on HLN. Ashleigh could have "talked" to me. She could have "talked" to my editor or my publication. But instead, she targeted a 23-year-old woman in one of the most vulnerable moments of her life, someone she's never f------ met before, for a little attention. I hope the ratings were worth it! I hope the ~500 RTs on the single news write-up made that burgundy lipstick bad highlights second-wave feminist has-been feel really relevant for a little while. She DISGUSTS me, and I hope when she has more distance from the moment she has enough of a conscience left to feel remotely ashamed — doubt it, but still. Must be nice to piggyback off of the fact that another woman was brave enough to speak up and add another dimension to the societal conversation about sexual assault. Grace wouldn't know how that feels, because she struck out into this alone, because she's the bravest person I've ever met. I would NEVER go on your network. I would never even watch your network. No woman my age would ever watch your network. I will remember this for the rest of my career — I'm 22 and so far, not too shabby! And I will laugh the day you fold. If you could let Ashleigh know I said this, and that she is no-holds-barred the reason, it'd be a real treat for me.

From Mike Branson to Robert Axel lying on a bed with grandpa Moses. Can you imagine Branson doing that?
The Internet has killed porn "(where producers paying literally anyone $300 to get fucked in a moving bus)".
Link NSFW (obviously)
"Maybe I started to realize it during the spectacular rise and ridiculous fall of Jason Crystal, the gay-for-pay performer who adopted no less than a dozen aliases, at least three hair colors, and appeared on over twenty gay porn websites in less than one year, but if I ever had any doubt, this image (left) of Robert Axel and %E2%80%9CCoach Daddy%E2%80%9D is proof of something that a lot of us have been lamenting (or in my case%E2%80%93denying) since at least the start of this decade: Gay porn stars are dead.
To be sure, I%E2%80%99ve used the term %E2%80%9Cgay porn star%E2%80%9D here in a lot of cases when I shouldn%E2%80%99t have, and I%E2%80%99ll no doubt continue to use it out of habit/laziness. But in some cases, it will be appropriate. There are exceptions. Those performers who have branded themselves and made a name for themselves not because they appeared on eight thousand websites but because of their consistent performances and their devoted fans and their undeniable physical appeal can call themselves stars (e.g., Brent Everett, Francois Sagat, Erik Rhodes); those performers who have anal sex with another man %E2%80%9Cfor the first time%E2%80%9D on an old couch on some set in the Valley can not.
But it%E2%80%99s not the aspiring %E2%80%9Cstar%E2%80%9D who killed the Gay Porn Star. After all, everyone deserves a chance to work and to try to become famous, and there has never been anything wrong with being a newcomer. What did kill the gay porn star? A lot of things.
It%E2%80%99s been the internet (illegal downloads, XTube) and the economy (producers paying literally anyone $300 to get fucked in a moving bus) that have helped the death of the gay porn star along. But at the same time, haven%E2%80%99t we helped, too? We get what we pay for. We keep the kind of porn that relies less on stars and more on niche content in business, don%E2%80%99t we? And at what point did we decide that certain types of men would be acceptable to masturbate to? Did our aesthetic change on its own, or did a collection of amateur porn producers gradually change it for us? Or, were we all just shallow before, masturbating to unrealistic and idealized versions of gay men, and over time we%E2%80%99ve become more accepting of and in turn stimulated by different body types%E2%80%93body types more like our own (which, in turn, makes us narcissists)?
It%E2%80%99s been over saturation. It%E2%80%99s been quantity over quality. By the time a larger, non-amateur studio signs a popular model to an %E2%80%9Cexclusive%E2%80%9D contract, it%E2%80%99s as unremarkable as it is meaningless. For one, we%E2%80%99ve already seem him working for seven, eight, or thirteen other studios. He can now only work for one company, for six months? Big deal. And that%E2%80%99s assuming the contract is even honored or legitimate in the first place, which they often aren%E2%80%99t. Take Axel, for example, who one week was signed as an exclusive to Falcon Studios and the next week was signed as an exclusive to Cocksure Men. While everyone was writing press releases, Axel was simultaneously filming bareback scenes with senior citizens on amateur sites. Oops.
Like Crystal and Axel, a lot of models have realized that they can make a lot of money (a lot of money for someone without formal job training or an education) in a short amount of time by filming for as many companies as they can, as fast as they can, before anyone catches on. In six months, a performer can film 50 scenes for 20 websites and maybe make $25,000, which is fine! There%E2%80%99s nothing wrong with that. But while these lightning round, assembly line style productions are great for well-hung grifters, they%E2%80%99re not going to cultivate any gay porn stars."

But Schaech says Zeffirelli harassed and sexually abused him during the shoot, a trauma he’s kept secret for 25 years. Hopeful his story can help make positive change, the Ray Donovan actor, now 48, who rose to fame in That Thing You Do!, shared this first-person account with PEOPLE’s Elizabeth Leonard.

A Russian Senator has warned that a bill outlawing cruelty to dogs is a ‘slippery slope’ to LGBT rights.
The bizarre claim comes from Communist Party Senator Sergei Kalashnikov after proposals were tabled to introduce some animal rights legislation.
Russia has some of the weakest legal protections for animals in the world, and both wild and domestic animals can be subjected to extreme cruelty.
But as the bill came forward to limit cruel treatment in the training of hunting dogs, Kalashnikov warned that it could lead to rights for a different oppressed minority.
According to the Moscow Times, he said: [bold]“We treat many western fads with humor, including political correctness, the rights of sexual minorities and others.[/bold]
“But any thought, however humanitarian, becomes absurd when carried to its logical conclusion.
[bold]“We’re not only passing a law that won’t work for many reasons, but we’re also demonstrating that we’re following the same path, so to speak, of defending the rights of sexual minorities.”[/bold]
The bill was eventually rejected, but only after Stepan Zhiryakov, the vice-chairman of the Agrarian Committee, clarified that dogs “should not be equated to sexual minorities.”
It is unclear what connection there is between banning cruelty against animals and LGBT rights legislation, aside from that of basic human decency. (MORE at link)

Colin Firth says he will not work with Woody Allen again
Actor provides statement to Guardian on same day Dylan Farrow gives first televised interview accusing her adopted father of sexual assault
Sam Levin in San Francisco, Thu 18 Jan 2018 19.25 EST
Colin Firth is the latest actor to publicly rebuke Woody Allen, telling the Guardian he won’t do any projects with the director in the future.
“I wouldn’t work with him again,” Firth said in a statement late Thursday, the same day Dylan Farrow gave her first televised interview accusing her adopted father of sexually assaulting her when she was seven years old.
Firth acted in Allen’s film Magic in the Moonlight in 2013, before Farrow published an open letter the following year alleging that her father molested her in an attic and accusing Hollywood of turning a “blind eye”. Allen denied the accusation as “untrue and disgraceful” at the time and again rebutted the claims this week, accusing the Farrow family of “cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time’s Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation”.
The Time’s Up initiative launched this year in response to the reckoning around sexual abuse in Hollywood that began in the fall, stemming from sexual harassment and rape allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein. In December, Farrow wrote an op-ed repeating her claims and questioning why the movement against sexual violence had spared Allen and calling on other actors to support her.
Since then, many high-profile actors have publicly expressed empathy for Farrow and have said they regret working with Allen, including Mira Sorvino, Rachel Brosnahan, Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall and Timothée Chalamet. Hall and Chalamet, who have parts in in Allen’s next film, A Rainy Day in New York, which was scheduled to be released this year, said they would donate their salaries to charities.
Last year, Firth was outspoken about Weinstein, whose company produced The King’s Speech, a 2010 film that earned Firth an Oscar. Firth called Weinstein a “frightening man” and said he felt shame for not doing more when the actor Sophie Dix told him of “a distressing encounter” with Weinstein more than 25 years ago.
While a growing number of prominent women who collaborated with Allen have recently condemned the director, many powerful male actors have remained silent, sparking criticisms.
Alec Baldwin, however, has defended Allen and criticized the stars who have denounced the director.

I kept hearing rumors that Linda Lavin was tough to work with. Seems that Lavin was bitter over the fact that Polly Holiday was stealing the limelight and that her character, Flo, was considered the hot one. Was this why she left to do that unsuccessful spinoff, "Flo?" I also read somewhere that Diane Ladd and Beth Howland didn't get along with her either. It seems like a lot of women who had done stage work in musicals than went to TV are pretty difficul to work with, as was the case with Betty Buckley on "Eight is Enough." I just watched a couple episodes of the sixth season DVD and I must say the Jolene era is pretty bad. I thought Vic Tayback was pretty sexy. Loved the fur on his upper back.

You can't ever *not* be gay.
Whereas most gay men can have basic interactions (getting into a taxi, checking into a hotel room, buying groceries) without anyone being aware of their sexuality, you can't. You've always got to deal with the judgement and condescension and mockery. It must be a lot like being black--you're always black no matter what you do, in every minor transaction.
So here's a New Year's salute to you.
You get a ton of grief everywhere from DL to Grindr, Mike Pence and his ilk want to cut off your cocks and turn you into women, and yet you've persisted.

Another villain who may have attacked child star Corey Haim has been unmasked — pop star Michael Jackson!
In a world RadarOnline.com exclusive, film producer Ed Meyer has broken an almost ten-year silence to reveal what Haim confided to him in 2008 — just two years before the troubled actor died of pneumonia at 38.
“Corey said, ‘I have a problem with Michael Jackson and with Charlie Sheen. I was assaulted by these guys, and a few others,’ ” Meyer told Radar. “I didn’t feel it was appropriate to say, ‘Who are the other people?'”
Although Haim never described the assaults as sexual, Meyer said his meaning was all too clear.
“Oh yeah, definitely,” Meyer told Radar. “He didn’t use the word sexual in either case. [It was just], ‘I was assaulted by these guys and a few others.’ It was also clear Sheen turned him on to drugs. That was 100 percent clear … He sounded like he was calling Charlie a pimp.”
As Radar reported, former actor Dominick Brascia, a close friend of Haim, said the Lost Boys legend told him Sheen sodomized him on the set of the 1986 film Lucas.
“Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed ‘Lucas,'” Brascia said. “He told me they smoked pot and had sex. Haim said after it happened, Sheen became very cold and rejected him.”
At the time, Haim was 13, and Sheen was 19.
Brascia’s stunning account was backed up by a longtime Sheen confidant, who told Radar the Platoon menace, now 52, admitted to a sexual tryst with Corey, but insisted it had been consensual.
Meyer told Radar Haim made the explosive revelation about Jackson, who died in 2009 at age 50, while filming the reality show The Two Coreys. The scene was eventually deleted.
Haim co-starred in the show with fellow former child star Corey Feldman.
In the deleted scene, filmed at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles, a down-on-his-luck Haim asked Meyer and casting directors for help in reviving his career.
One of the directors happened to know Sheen, and Haim was startled to see him, Meyer said.
“You could see he was shook a little bit,” Meyer told Radar. “He didn’t expect it, and I started kicking him under the table, like, ‘Back off!'”
That’s when Haim ripped into Sheen and Jackson for assaulting him , Meyer said.
“[Corey] was basically saying it was a dark time in his life, but he felt he was over that, and he was moving on and looking for work, and that played into what we were doing on camera,” Meyer said.
Ultimately, Meyer said the scene was cut because Haim had gone “overboard” about Jackson and Sheen.
“A&E filmed the video, and they did not air our piece because Corey was going overboard, venting,” Meyer said.
“If it had aired, I think you would have had law enforcement looking into Charlie!”

Everybody has moved to LA. I can explain it. There was people everywhere but it was like a ghost town. It felt just like any other city.
I've been going there for years but it finally hit me. The average age for a NYer these days is 65 where is in LA it's 25.
Not to mention the Dicksonian divide between the residents of manhattan and the workers. When you are shining shoes that cost more than your year's earnings, it just has to be very damaging to the soul.
I have never felt so poor in my life. I visited a friend who is a lawyer and makes a ton of money but lives in a studio apartment. It's always been expensive, but he is literally a millionaire and he lives in a shoe box. Subway rides are now $5.50 round trip and it costs about $20 to enter the city from the bridges and tunnels.
The people are cold and aloof and would not bat an eye if they passed you while you were bleeding to death in the streets.

Prince William sports shaved head on royal visit
2 hours ago
The Duke of Cambridge sported a newly trimmed hairstyle as he visited a children's hospital.
Prince William revealed the close-shaven style at the launch of the Step into Health programme at the Evelina London Children's Hospital.
He opted for the military-style cut before meeting Armed Forces veterans working in the NHS.
Members of the Royal Family have been known to tease the 35-year-old about his receding hairline.
In 2014, the Duchess of Cambridge suggested a tuft of alpaca wool might be the perfect solution for her husband's growing bald patch.
As they visited the Sydney Royal Easter Show, she was shown the wool, which was a similar shade of brown to the duke's hair.
The duchess pointed to her husband's head and said: "You need it more than me."
Prince Harry has also been known to poke fun at his balding brother. While chatting to a World War Two veteran in Barbados in 2010, he said Prince William "was already bald aged 12".
Step into Health is a programme that helps ex-Armed Forces members and their spouses or partners to take up careers in the NHS.

The Coronation – Queen shines in a surprisingly fun royal coup
After decades of negotiations, the BBC put its access to good use. ‘Coronation expert’ Alastair Bruce guides the action, but it’s the smiling sovereign who stars
Lucy Mangan, Sun 14 Jan 2018 21.00 GMT
In 1930, MGM could revel in its success. Anna Christie was released to the accompaniment of the blazing promise “Garbo talks!” to mark the first time the silent film star had given utterance on camera.
I suspect the BBC’s publicity department collectively ruptured several vital organs as they strained not to do the same with their coup. After 22 years of negotiations, our notoriously camera-hating sovereign agreed to talk on camera in The Coronation, a documentary to mark 65 years since she ascended the throne. “Queenie speaks!” was surely the strapline everyone wanted. Closely followed by “Farkin’ ’ell!”
The Coronation was presented by former herald and “coronation expert” Alastair Bruce, because this is 2018 and this is England and no one had the balls to let Alan Bennett do it, but do you know what? It could have been a lot worse.
The tone was only ever momentarily reverential, and when it slipped into that squishy territory it was usually the Queen herself who yanked it back out on to dry land.
Watching Her Majesty’s personal footage of the 1953 ceremony’s aftermath, as the young Prince Charles and Princess Anne played hide-and-seek underneath her train, Bruce murmured “Such fun for the children.”
“Not what they were meant to do,” the mother-monarch replied tartly.
Later, when Bruce asked the white-gloved crown jeweller (one of the three people who is allowed to touch it; this is 2018, this is England) “if the crown can be brought a little closer to the Queen”, she moved it herself.
“This is what I do when I wear it!”, our Sovereign grinned delightedly, the spider at the centre of a webby mass of protocol and etiquette, across whose sticky strands only she can stride safely.
When Her Majesty was not on screen, obsequiousness was kept at bay by concentrating on the origins of the regalia and the ceremony, wisely treating them all as embodiments and vectors of history rather than mere accretions of pageantry.
It won’t turn you from republican to ardent monarchist to know that although the St Edward’s Crown was created in 1661 for Charles II, the makers strove to replicate Edward the Confessor’s. They did that to assure a people riven by civil war that there would be a return to medieval certainties, but it is surely fairer to know what it is you are embracing or dismissing.
Contemporary footage showed the breathtaking scale of the preparations and the Duke of Norfolk’s talent for organisation down to the last detail (the maids of honour had phials of smelling salts tucked behind their glove buttons in case they fainted). Though I guess it comes slightly easier when overseeing extraordinary state occasions has been your family’s raison d’etre for five centuries.

In a series of tweets posted Tuesday, the actor slammed the re-emergence of sexual-abuse allegations against the director, writing, “accusing people of such crimes should be treated carefully.”
After actors Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Hall pledged to donate their salaries from their work on Woody Allen films to charity in light of the re-emergence of sexual abuse claims against Allen by adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, Alec Baldwin took to Twitter to say that he finds the public disapproval of Allen “unfair and sad.”
In a series of tweets posted Tuesday, Baldwin praised the director, stating that any charges made against Allen by Farrow were never filed. “Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked with WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career,” Baldwin wrote.

New office will help medical providers deny treatment on religious grounds
- Health agency creates conscience and religious freedom division
- Trump administration move may affect abortion and LGBT rights
Jessica Glenza in New York, Thu 18 Jan 2018 17.57 GMT
The Trump administration is creating an office to protect the religious rights of medical providers, including those who may oppose abortion or transgender rights, in a decision that is likely to be a lightning rod for controversy.
The new “division for conscience and religious freedom” in the US Health and Human Services Agency will defend healthcare workers who, on religious grounds, refuse to treat patients or take part in procedures. The division will be part of the agency’s Office for Civil Rights.
“Laws protecting religious freedom and conscience rights are just empty words on paper if they aren’t enforced,” said Roger Severino, the director of the health department’s civil rights division, and an outspoken opponent of abortion, same-sex marriage and anti-discrimination protections for transgender people.
Among the speakers at the announcement of the new division were pro-life lawmakers; the leader of a religious liberty foundation who fought against a mandate that health insurance cover birth control; and a midwife who said she was wrongly refused a job at a women’s clinic because she opposed abortion.
“No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by one’s deepest moral or religious convictions, and the new division will help guarantee that victims of unlawful discrimination find justice,” Severino said. “For too long, governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection, but change is coming and it begins here and now.”
Religious and moral convictions have become the latest battleground for anti-LGBT activists since same-sex marriage was legalized. Largely, cases have been fought in court. One of the most emblematic, the case of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, was argued before the US supreme court in December.
However, the religious freedom division represents the Trump administration’s preferred governing strategy – making dramatic changes to agencies in the executive branch which Congress does not need to approve.
Already, civil rights campaigners have raised alarms about the new division.
“Religious liberty doesn’t include a right to be exempt from laws protecting our health or barring discrimination,” said Louise Melling, deputy legal director at the American Civil Liberties Union. “It doesn’t mean a right to refuse to transport a patient in need because she had an abortion. It doesn’t mean refusing care to a patient because she is transgender.
“Medical standards, not religious belief, should guide medical care,” said Melling.
Senator Patty Murray, a Democrat from Washington, criticized the decision.
“This would be yet another attempt to let ideology dictate who is able to get the care they need,” Murray said. “Any approach that would deny or delay healthcare to someone and jeopardize their wellbeing for ideological reasons is unacceptable.”

Lastly, the entrenched interests in Washington, which have done nothing but glad-hand one another, and both political parties are angry and afraid. Who knew that all it would take to make progress was vision, chutzpah and some testosterone? STEVEN SANABRIA - OAKDALE, CALIF.
[quote]To the Editor: I voted against Hillary Clinton more than I voted for Donald Trump. That said, President Trump has exceeded my wildest expectations. Yes, he is embarrassing. Yes, he picks unnecessary fights. But he also pushed tax reform through, has largely defeated ISIS in Iraq, has named a number of solid conservative judges, has prioritized American citizens over illegal immigrants, has gotten us out of several bad international agreements, has removed a number of wasteful regulations, is putting real pressure on North Korea and Iran, has reined in a number of out-of-control agencies, and so on and so on. I loved George W. Bush, but he failed on policy over and over again. If it takes putting up with Mr. Trump’s brash ways to see things get done, that is a deal I’m willing to accept. To be honest, I’m not sure he would have accomplished what he has so far without being an unrelenting public bully. JASON PECK - HOLTSVILLE, N.Y.
[quote]To the Editor: I voted for Donald Trump and, considering the alternative, I would do so again. Newsflash: Not all Trump voters are Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables.” Many of us are well-informed and highly educated, and we are weary of the Democrats’ tiresome focus on identity politics, class warfare, and disparagement of corporations and the “wealthy.” Opinion polls give Mr. Trump a low rating, and I would, too, for character, personality and temperament. But I would give him high marks for policies and programs that are stimulating the private sector, which, after all, pays the bills for the Democrats’ extravagant welfare programs. And because of Mr. Trump we have an education secretary who actually cares more about educating children than appeasing the teachers’ unions. Even more important, we desperately needed a seismic change in the pusillanimous foreign policy pursued during the Obama years, which emboldened our adversaries, including China, Russia, North Korea and Middle East militants. I also support a more robust approach to border security and illegal immigration, which could still entail legal residency for law-abiding Dreamers but not an undeserved pathway to citizenship. DAVID MACNEIL - CHATHAM, N.J.
[quote]To the Editor: Yes, I was a Trump voter. There, I’ve said it. Though I am subjecting myself to derision, I think that President Trump has performed well policywise. Changes for the good of our country in both foreign and domestic affairs have happened under his watch. Much of the media, as the hotbed of hatred against Mr. Trump, has pushed me more toward him than his social behavior has done the opposite. SONIA SCHWARTZ - VALLEY STREAM, N.Y.

Actress Jensen Buchanan, who pleaded guilty last year to driving with a blood-alcohol content more than four times above the legal limit and causing a crash that critically injured an Arizona man, has been jailed for allegedly drinking alcohol while on felony probation.
Buchanan is scheduled to be arraigned on the probation-violation charge Thursday in Santa Maria Superior Court.
She initially was arrested following a two-car crash on Highway 154 near Live Oak Camp, where she was driving the wrong way on May 18, 2016, the California Highway Patrol said.
The driver of the other vehicle, Bradley Asolas, who now lives in Arizona, suffered major injuries and had to be extricated from his vehicle.
He spent more than 30 days in Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, and continues his recovery from the various injuries more than a year later, he told the court.
During the October hearing, the judge sentenced to Buchanan to spend 365 days in Santa Barbara County Jail and five years felony probation.
He also suspended the 6-year prison term, but issued a stern warning after hearing from Asolas and his wife about their lives since the crash.
Among many standard terms of her sentencing, Buchanan was ordered to avoid alcohol.
“Should Ms. Buchanan violate the terms and conditions of her probation, every day of that six-year prison sentence is right there, and I would not hesitate to impose it,” Judge James Voysey told the court during the sentencing hearing.
Buchanan reportedly had been out of custody on alternative sentencing, which requires wearing an electronic alcohol monitoring device.
The Santa Barbara County Jail periodically releases some inmates to alternative sentencing programs due to overcrowding.
In the new allegation, probation officers allege the device registered alcohol use between December 29 and January 11, with a peak reading of 0.18, Chief Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Gresser said after reviewing the probation report.
Buchanan reportedly was arrested by Oxnard police on January 12 and booked into the Ventura County Jail, according to that facility's online records, which also said she was released from that jail early Wednesday. The jail website listed her manner of release as "other county."
Buchanan was in custody in Santa Barbara County Jail as of Wednesday night, a records clerk said.
Buchanan appeared on numerous soap operas over nearly three decades including, most recently, on The Young and the Restless (as Elise), and previously on One Life to Live (Sarah), Another World (Vicky), As the World Turns (Vicky) and General Hospital (Melissa).
UPDATE: During her brief probation violating hearing Thursday, defense attorney Griselda Carreon denied the violation had occurred, and Judge Patricia Kelly continued the hearing until 8:30 a.m. Monday in Voysey's courtroom, where Buchanan had been sentenced.
Carreon also requested that bail be set, arguing the actress "has been sober since May 19, 2016," and had complied with all of her custody requirements even after being evacuated from both the Thomas fire and deadly Montecito mudslides.

Harley Barber is on her way home to New Jersey after being expelled from the University of Alabama and de-lettered from her sorority.
Two separate videos of Barber went viral Tuesday, but not for the reasons she had hoped. In both of them, she can he heard using the n-word repeatedly in lengthy racist tirades.
What’s even more damning, and perplexing, is that she recored and posted the videos herself.
In the first clip, she appears in a public restroom and decided to record video of the faucet that had been left running.
“We do not waste water…because of the poor people in Syria,” she says as she films the sink. “We don’t waste water. I love how I act like I love black people because I (expletive) hate (n-word) so that’s really interesting but I just saved the (expletive) (n-word) by shutting that water off.”
Needless to say, she faced an almost immediate backlash after she posted the video to her Instagram account. To address the backlash, she recorded a second video and only made things worse.
“(N-word) (n-word) (n-word). I don’t care if it’s Martin Luther King Day. I’m in the south now (expletive) so everybody can (expletive) off. I’m from New Jersey so I can say (n-word) as much as I want.”

“So” asks Trump “when are you going to invade Latvia?” This is the question he asks Torshin, the Russian connection, mobster money man for Putin at the NRA convention. L
atvia was one of the Nations that broke away from the USSR via peaceful protest. They are proudly Democratic, progressive open liberal Democracy. They are also a remarkable breadbasket nation. Latvia is also constantly under threat of Putins Russian Military maneuvers and endless cyberattacks. To that end they have requested and received a permanent US Military presence as means of protection against Putins aggression - after all that is a man that blew up 2 blocks of Russian citizens to fake a “Ukrainian Terrorist attack on Russia. WIth that Putin was able to distract from calls for investigation to his robbing of the Russian Treasury and invade the Ukraine. Also he blew down an airliner- while telling the world it was Ukraine. It wasnt.
So Trump asked Russia when they would invade Latvia. Ultimately the NRA gave the Trump campaign 30$ Million Russian dollars. This is against the law. No money from a Hostile Foreign power may be contributed to an American campaign

Labour's candidate for London Mayor has issued a grovelling apology after it emerged that he had described moderate Muslim groups as 'Uncle Toms'. Sadiq Khan said he regretted using the term, which is notorious racial slur used against black people to suggest that they are subservient to whites. But he also insisted he would 'respect' everyone in the capital if he was elected, and lashed out at tactics employed by Tory rival Zac Goldsmith during the battle.
The incendiary claim surfaced in an interview with Iranian-backed Press TV from 2009, when Mr Khan was 'minister for community cohesion', in charge of Government efforts to stamp out extremism. The revelation is a major blow for Mr Khan, who has faced a string of claims about his past dealings with Muslim extremists during the bitter campaign to succeed Boris Johnson.

[quote]" Amazon Studios has cancelled I Love Dick, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, and One Mississippi, Variety reports. The cancellations are part of a larger strategy coming from the top: Jeff Bezos has ordered the studio to back away from the kind of niche-y original programming they built their name on in search of broader material that performs better internationally.
[quote]One Mississippi was a semiautobiographical show from Tig Notaro and Diablo Cody about Notaro’s return to her hometown that adroitly mixed comedy and tragedy. I Love Dick, Jill Soloway’s follow-up to Transparent, was an adaptation of Chris Kraus’ novel about a female filmmaker’s infatuation with a male artist, relocated to Marfa, Texas. Jean-Claude Van Johnson was an action series from David Callaham—released just over a month ago—in which Jean-Claude Van Damme played an action star named “Jean-Claude Van Damme” who also works as an undercover agent. All three shows were developed under Roy Price, the disgraced studio head fired after allegations of sexual harassment, but this isn’t a case of sweeping out an old regime: Price had begun implementing Bezos’ strategy before his abrupt departure.
[quote]On its face, this is terrible news: there’s not exactly a surfeit of distinctive, critically-acclaimed female-developed television series, and Amazon just cancelled two in one day. But looking more closely, it’s even worse news: Amazon is consciously following the same international-led strategy that turned the major studios into superhero movie factories over the last decade. In that spirit—and in hopes of scoring their own Game of Thrones-size hit—the studio is developing a series based on The Lord of the Rings. (Peter Jackson’s six-film series ran to a paltry 22 hours in the extended editions; thank God the Tolkien universe will finally get the broader canvas of television!) We all know how this is going to play out: like Lord of the Rings, everybody already saw it at the movies. "

But, hey, she does know a thing or two about getting stuff done in high heels (the peripatetic congresswoman is rarely seen without a pair of pumps). And Pelosi, whose district includes San Francisco, has been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community. A Pelosi rep tells us it’s the latter factor that prompted her to sign on to the gig, to show solidarity in the face of what she calls attacks against LGBT people by the Trump administration.
Pelosi has been a fan of the show, we’re told, and its credo of being proud of who you are.
Her appearance has already taped, but we couldn’t pry any spoilers out of her about what to expect when the series begins Jan. 25. Just this one from her spokesman: “She had a ‘fabulous’ time.”

A former high school classmate of the University of Pennsylvania student found stabbed and buried in a Southern California park has been charged with his murder, according to a criminal complaint.
Samuel Lincoln Woodward, 20, was charged on Wednesday with murdering 19-year-old Blaze Bernstein with a knife while Bernstein was visiting his parents in Orange County on winter break.
Orange County prosecutors also filed a sentencing enhancement for use of a knife, which would allow them to seek more jail time for Woodward if he is convicted.
Prosecutors also revealed that Woodward returned to the scene of the crime while under police surveillance.
Authorities have said Bernstein went to Borrego Ranch Park with Woodward on January 2. His body was found in a shallow grave at the park a week later.
Woodward was arrested and told investigators he became angry after Bernstein kissed him the night they went to the park.
Bernstein's parents say the killing may have been a hate crime against their gay son
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckus told reporters on Wednesday that investigators are looking for evidence that would support making the legal case a hate crime.
Asked specifically about hate crime evidence, Rackauckus said, 'We're looking for that evidence and if and when we find it we will amend the charges and file that.'
Rackauckus says both young men had attended the Orange County School of the Arts.
The district attorney says Woodward communicated with Bernstein by Snapchat on January 2 and then picked him up at his parents' house.
Bernstein was visiting his family in Foothill Ranch during winter break from the Ivy League school when Woodward picked him up and drove with him to several places before winding up at Borrego Park in Lake Forest, police say.
Bernstein's body was found in brush at the park on January 9 after recent rains partially exposed it.
Investigators say the college sophomore was stabbed more than 20 times.
Authorities say Woodward told them he had left Bernstein at the park alive, claiming he left the park to go see his girlfriend, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Woodward could remember neither the name nor address of his 'girlfriend', police said.
He also had scratches on his hands, which police say he told them he had sustained while participating in a fight club.
Woodward also had dirt under his fingernails, which he told authorities was due to falling into a 'dirty puddle' while sparring.
Woodward was arrested on Friday after crime lab technicians determined that blood found on a sleeping bag in his possession belonged to Bernstein.
Woodward and Bernstein had attended the Orange County School of the Arts together.
Tension between the two friends may have dated back at least to June, when Bernstein texted with two female friends about their friendship, according to a warrant affidavit reported by the OC Register.
Bernstein claimed in the messages that Woodward 'hit on me', adding 'he made me promise not to tell anyone … but I have texted every one, uh oh.'
On January 2, cops believe the two young men parked outside a Hobby Lobby.
Woodward told investigators that Bernstein kissed him on the lips, and that he pushed Bernstein away.
Police told a judge that Woodward clenched his fists while recounting this part of the story, saying 'he wanted to tell Blaze to get off of him'.
Woodward was known for his conservative religious and political beliefs in high school, police said.

There is a very famous female celebrity who condemned Harvey Weinstein after the stories about him became public.
Wait. Strike that.
It was more like she talked… around him. She spoke in general terms about how shocking it was to hear the stories about him, but then skipped to talking more about how terrible it is when men abuse power, etc.
Since he was her producer – and she had personally known him and worked with him for years – did she really have no personal insight to offer? Was she really shocked by the news? Did she really not know what was going on?
Oh, she knew.
Actually, she more than knew.
She was part of his feeder system. She would find pretty young girls for him and hand them some B.S. about “You know, if you are serious about your career, you should really meet Harvey.” They were so excited that she was personally taking an interest in them and giving their number to a big Hollywood producer. She led them like lambs to the slaughter.

I'm curious about the behind the scenes story. Why'd the kill off Cherry? She gets second billing to Delaney and while the rest of the cast is alphabetical so I guess she was initially supposed to be the second lead.
What about Chloe Webb? She gets the odd special guest appearance by billing. Was there ever any intention of keeping her beyond the first season?
Did Delaney become so clearly the star of the show that they wrote off the other secondary stars?

The brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, believed to be caused by repeated head trauma, has been found in 87 of 91 deceased former NFL players tested, according to researchers. See the most-read stories in Sports this hour >>
"People think that we're blowing this out of proportion, that this is a very rare disease and that we’re sensationalizing it," Dr. Ann McKee, chief of neurophysiology at the VA Boston Healthcare System and director of the lab where the tests were conducted, told PBS' "Frontline." "My response is that where I sit, this is a very real disease. We have had no problem identifying it in hundreds of players."
In research conducted by the Department of Veteran Affairs and Boston University, 40% of those testing positive for CTE were offensive or defensive linemen, according to the report.
Though those linemen aren't typically subjected to the big concussion-causing hits sustained by other players on the field, it's the consistent minor collisions that could pose a greater risk to players, according to the research.
The disease has been also been found in 79% of those tested who played football at any level going back to high school. For former NFL players tested, that number rises to 96%.
Signs of the disease's existence in living players can be identified with brain scans but CTE cannot be officially diagnosed until after death.
The suicides of Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau in 2012 and former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson in 2011, who were both diagnosed with CTE following their shooting deaths, helped raise awareness of the neurodegenerative disease.

Mediatakout just viewed some extremely blockbuster footage – which purports to show one of the top NFL players engaged in a gay act with a man.
The NFL player – who plays the position of quarterback- has long been rumored to have been either closeted gay or bisexual.
In the video – which Mediatakout has viewed but does not possess – the NFL star is seen giving a man some or*l relations.
The man who owns the video has shopped the video to at least one other news agency – and is hoping to get paid for the video. He also has text messages that he believes authenticates the video.
A representative for the video owner told Mediatakout, “we’re trying to leak it around the Superbowl – to get maximum views.”
Because we can’t be 100% certain (we’re about 95%) that the NFL player is the person in the video – we are refraining from naming the payer.
But we can tell you that he is one of the biggest names in the league – and his “coming out” would be the biggest sports story of 2018.

Israeli soldiers shot 14-year-old Palestinian Mohammad Tamimi point-blank in the face with a rubber-jacketed bullet on December 14, 2017, in Nabi Saleh, a small village in the occupied West Bank. The boy had to undergo six hours of surgery and was placed in a medically induced coma.
An hour later, Mohammad’s cousin, Ahed Tamimi, slapped and kicked at an armed Israeli soldier. Early the next week, after video of Ahed’s actions went viral, Israeli soldiers raided the Tamimi home at 3 a.m., arresting Ahed and confiscating the family’s phones, computers and laptops.
Ahed has been denied bail and could face years in prison. (Nour Tamimi, a 16-year-old cousin of Ahed’s who is also in the video, was also arrested and has been released on bail. Ahed’s mother Nariman was arrested later that day when she inquired about her daughter, and she remains in custody.)
A January 1 Newsweek article described the incident as Ahed “assaulting Israeli soldiers,” “threatening two Israeli soldiers and then hitting them in the face,” “pushing the soldiers as well as kicking them, hitting them in the face and throwing stones at them.” The piece referred to Ahed’s actions as “assaults” and an “attack.” It failed to report that Israeli soldiers had just shot and severely injured her 14-year-old cousin.
CNN (1/8/18) also ran a piece that left out the most serious act of violence that day, as did Reuters (12/28/17, 1/1/18). An Associated Press report (12/28/17) had the same deficiency, leaving the false impression that the soldier was attacked without provocation.
The Newsweek piece also failed to note that the Israeli soldiers are members of a military force that has been occupying the West Bank for 50 years. Nor does CBS’s December 21 account mention the occupation, which structures every interaction between Palestinians and Israelis. (The fact that occupied people have a legal right to resist occupation is left out of all of the articles discussed in this piece.)
A report in the New York Times (12/22/17) does not mention that Mohammad Tamimi was shot in the face with a rubber bullet until the 13th paragraph, as though this fact is of minimal importance. The Times describes Nabi Saleh as having “long-running disputes with a nearby Israeli settlement, Halamish, that Nabi Saleh residents say has stolen their land and water.” The Times does not note that, as a colony on occupied territory, Halamish is illegal under international law.
[bold]Normalizing military tribunals[/bold]
The Newsweek piece says Tamimi “has now been indicted on five counts of assaulting security forces,” and that she is “charged with interfering with the soldiers’ duties by preventing them from returning to their post.” It notes that “in May, she was charged with interfering with soldiers who were trying to arrest a protester throwing stones,” and refers to her indictment two other times, including in the headline. At no point does the article mention that the proceedings are taking place in a military court. Similarly, an Associated Press (1/9/18) report refers to “Israel’s hard-charging prosecution” and “the charges” against Tamimi, without mentioning that she is being tried by the same occupying military that shot her cousin.
Omitting that information makes it sound like Tamimi will receive a fair legal process, but the evidence suggests the opposite. According to the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Palestinians in the occupied West Bank are subjected to a military court system that “does not grant the right to due process and the rights derived from it,” whereas Israelis illegally colonizing the Occupied Territories have the rights and privileges of a civilian legal system.

JUNE 08, 2017
Congresswoman Martha McSally may be in more political trouble than she's been letting on.
Team McSally has been poo-pooing recent polls showing that more than half of the voters in her district disapprove of her job performance, while her approval has fallen down to the mid-30s, percentage-wise, and that she was losing to a generic Democrat by 7 percentage points.
But last week, in a private talk to the Arizona Bankers Association, McSally conceded that in the current political environment, she has some real challenges in next year's election.
McSally complained that President Donald Trump and his tweets were creating troubling "distractions" and "it's basically being taken out on me. Any Republican member of Congress, you are going down with the ship. And we're going to hand the gavel to Pelosi in 2018, they only need 28 seats and the path to that gavel being handed over is through my seat. And right now, it doesn't matter that it's me, it doesn't matter what I've done. I have an 'R' next to my name and right now, this environment would have me not prevail."
Admittedly, McSally was making these comments as she was asking the bankers to open their checkbooks for her reelection campaign, so it could well be that she was just doing the ol' fear-mongering-for-dollars act.
McSally's comments came to light after some of McSally's critics—including Kristen Randall, the leader of Indivisible Southern Arizona—ordered tickets to a talk McSally was giving at a luncheon for the Arizona Bankers Association.
Someone on Team McSally, however, appears to have taken a closer look at who was attending the event, because four of the five members of the group received emails about two hours before the lunch informing them that their tickets had been revoked. "They caught onto us," Randall says with a laugh.
But the fifth member (whose identity The Skinny is not privy to) did manage to appear bankerly enough to crash the party—and the spy recorded McSally's entire speech for the Randall's group, and from there, it fell into our hands.
McSally was more blunt in many of her comments behind closed doors than she typically is when questioned on the issues. In fact, she expressed frustration that the media and her constituents ask her to comment on what President Trump says and does.
"The environment has changed and some of it changed on January 20," McSally told the crowd. "There's just an element out there that's just, like, so against the president. Like they just can't see straight. And all of a sudden on January 20, I'm like his twin sister to them. And I'm, like, responsible for everything he does, and tweets and says. And they want me to be spending my time as a pundit. 'I disagree with that. I agree with this.' I have a job in the legislature!"
Randall says she does expect McSally to speak up when Trump does something offensive.
"That's her job," Randall says. "When there's going to be a vote, we want a statement. We want a dialogue. And she's not giving it to us. She seems really put out. ... She's a leader in our community and that is part of her job. There's a human component to her job that she very obviously does not enjoy."
In her talk, McSally acknowledged that the job comes with a lot of frustration. She said serving in Congress had gotten a lot harder since Trump's election last year and that she's forced to "navigate in the political theater, but I don't breathe life into it and I don't enjoy it, just to be frank with you. It actually drains me."
As she was talking to bankers, McSally focused on the latest GOP efforts to repeal the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that regulated banks after the 2007 economic collapse. She characterized Dodd-Frank as a hindrance to banks that needs to be repealed.

The Post reports:
Three White House officials said Perdue and Cotton told the White House that they heard “shithouse” rather than “shithole,” allowing them to deny the president’s comments on television over the weekend. The two men initially said publicly that they could not recall what the president said.
Not only did these two repeatedly lie, but Cotton also impugned the integrity of Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), who told the truth. Asked whether the accusation that Trump spoke the offending words or the sentiment was phony, Cotton lied, “Yes.” He went on to say, “Senator Durbin has misrepresented what happened in White House meetings before, and he was corrected by Obama administration officials by it.”
Honorable men would resign after such a remarkable revelation of their crummy character; neither Cotton nor Perdue will. We still await the appearance of a single staffer of either who would quit in protest.
The incident is telling in many respects, but none more important for Republicans than this: They can lie and enable the president hoping to score brownie points, but this White House won’t repay loyalty in kind. Instead, Republicans will find themselves humiliated.
So to recap: The president described a preference for Norwegian (i.e. white) immigrants over those from “shithole” countries (African nations). He gave the Congressional Black Caucus the back of the hand. (“At one point, Durbin told the president that members of that caucus — an influential House group — would be more likely to agree to a deal if certain countries were included in the proposed protections, according to people familiar with the meeting. Trump was curt and dismissive, saying he was not making immigration policy to cater to the CBC and did not particularly care about that bloc’s demands, according to people briefed on the meeting. ‘You’ve got to be joking,’ one adviser said, describing Trump’s reaction.”) He blew up a possible deal on the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program, bragged about his actions to friends and then lied to the public about what he said. Two U.S. senators lied as well and then were double-crossed by White House aides.
This raises several questions: Why should these Republicans hold elected office? Why should anyone believe them in the future? And lastly, what is the appropriate response to them?
Given that the two senators lied to the faces of interviewers on the Sunday talk shows, network bookers might consider never having them on air again. They are known prevaricators, so whatever they say on their shows cannot be relied upon as credible. News outlets should respect their viewers by denying airtime for those with so little respect for the truth.

Raw fish has a lot of worm. I know people who love Sushi say "oh, where I eat its only the freshest or it's cooked by soaking it in lemon juice" Except, lemon juice or other marinades do not cook fish with heat, its a chemical reaction. So parasites, worms and eggs can remain unharmed while you cook them up a meal. Some have protective shells, heat is the only way to truly kill them. It's like putting lemon juice on an egg shell and an 30 minutes later and magically expecting it to be gone.

Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) — who is running to replace Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) in the Senate — stopped by Tucker Carlson Tonight and she didn’t mince words in regards to what she thinks of the Democrats currently in congress.
The congresswoman was asked by Tucker how she feels about the democrats saying “provide amnesty or we’re going to stop paying for our troops.”
"It's infuriating Tucker, this is the point that I brought up in the White House meeting last week and I was moved when I heard [Sen.] Dick Durbin (D-IL) say there’s lives hanging in the balance, or something like that,” she said. “I was like moved to jump in and say the only lives that are hanging in the balance are those of our military, the men and woman that are serving overseas, putting their lives in harm’s way.”
“While our troops are over there risking their lives for us, these guys are dicking around,” she said in a obvious reference to the democrats.
After making her dislike for the democrats in congress known, McSally reviewed the bill that she is backing. The bill includes addressing sanctuary cities, ending chain migration, along with other immigration issues.
She finished by acknowledging those within her own party. McSally agreed with Tucker that she must get republicans like Lindsey Graham on her side in order to pass a bill.

I know that when Lee Miglin was first found dead, the Chicago power brokers wanted to pretend that it had nothing to do with Cunanan but the fact could not be hidden. After Versace was killed, a wealthy doctor was found murdered, in his home, near Miami. I believe he was found hogtied and it was thought to have been murder by rentboy. His wife and kids were in Cuba. The Miami Police insisted it had nothing to do with Cunanan but I wonder. How many people did Andrew Cunanan really murder?

Over the weekend, a story broke at the online publication babe detailing a sexual encounter between Golden Globe-winning “Master of None” star Aziz Ansari and an anonymous woman who went by “Grace” for the purposes of the report. The title? “I went on a date with Aziz Ansari. It turned into the worst night of my life.”
In it she detailed how they met (at an Emmy after-party), how they flirted for the next few days (over texts), how they got together (she came over for drinks at his apartment, then went for dinner and drinks at a fancy restaurant down the street, then came back to his house for more drinks), and how it ended in tears (Ansari moved in aggressively and awkwardly, they had oral sex, she went along with it all until he pushed for intercourse, she rebuffed him, they made out a bit more, she became uncomfortable and asked to leave, he called her an Uber and she left).
The story quickly went viral and social media did what social media does: explode into outrage. Grace’s tale slid into the unfolding narrative of #MeToo and #TimesUp; indeed, the whole thing came about because Ansari, a noted male feminist, wore a #TimesUp button on the Golden Globes red carpet last week. The calls swiftly and mercilessly came: for Ansari to lose his show, for him to be shunned, for his career to end. He was one of the good ones, it’s always the good ones, this is why we can’t have nice things, #YesAllMen, etc.
The only issue with all this is that this story about Ansari is nothing like the ugly tales of sexual abuse that have wafted out of Hollywood over the past six months or so. Not really. From Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual assaults and use of blacklists to Kevin Spacey’s predatory behavior toward young men to Louis C.K.’s masturbating in front of people without asking, these were all stories that were both criminal in nature and involved an abuse of power over underlings. . .
The babe story is not about this. It is about a date that went badly, one that did not live up to the expectations of the woman involved. Consider, for instance, the inclusion of this paragraph in the story: “After arriving at his apartment in Manhattan on Monday evening, they exchanged small talk and drank wine. [bold]‘It was white,’ she said. ‘I didn’t get to choose and I prefer red, but it was white wine.’[/bold] Then Ansari walked her to Grand Banks, an Oyster bar on board a historic wooden schooner on the Hudson River just a few blocks away.” [Emphasis mine.]
The aside about the white/red wine is something that any writer or editor who truly understood the stakes of this story would have taken out of the piece. It makes the subject appear silly, if not bitter or resentful. I honestly thought for a moment that I might be reading a parody after that line: There’s no grander point about consent in this anecdote — if she had asked for white and he had laughed at her and said no and forced her to drink red, well, okay, maybe that would fit a piece like the one we are reading. This isn’t that. It’s simply out of place in a piece that should have immense gravity.
. . .
As Caitlin Flanagan put it in a blistering piece titled “The Humiliation of Aziz Ansari,” “what [Grace] and the writer who told her story created was 3,000 words of revenge porn. The clinical detail in which the story is told is intended not to validate her account as much as it is to hurt and humiliate Ansari.”
I would suggest there’s a reason this story appeared in babe, rather than the New York Times or BuzzFeed or the Los Angeles Times or, yes, The Washington Post. One of the reasons is that, however Grace now thinks of the encounter, what happened isn’t sexual assault or anything close to it by most legal or common-sense standards. And bad dates — including terrible ones that leave one person feeling humiliated — aren’t actually newsworthy, even when they happen to famous people.

I'll try to keep this streamlined for the purpose of demonstrating how #metoo +SJWs can affect a work place.
My brother is a partner in a law firm who several year ago hired an SJW type to oversee day to day operations to make certain no "embarrassing situations" happen in the firm, which included, and not limited to: no mention of holidays, no discussion of political topics, no off color jokes, puns or innuendos. (He was warned when he referred to having to go to his kids' Christmas pageant!)
A recent memo listed all of the inappropriate topics (what you call micro-aggressions) that should be avoided in essentially mixed company, which could be construed as sexual harassment or misogyny.
To my point: the head of the firm just sent out a memo basically saying, "Men quite avoiding women in the workplace! You must include them in any and all conversation!" with an article and note forwarded from the SJW that "exclusion is a form of bullying and will be reprimanded/fined."
This is apparently where we're headed: dictated interactions.

Her film career baffles me. She wasn't traditionally pretty or sexy, and just a competent actress. Yet she was signed- to a contract at MGM!
"Following her graduation from college, Davis held jobs in Chicago as a sales clerk in Marshall Field's department store and as a nurse's aide. With the help of her mother's colleagues in theatre, including ZaSu Pitts, Walter Huston, and Spencer Tracy, she pursued a professional career as an actress. She first gained a part in Pitts' 1945 road tour of Ramshackle Inn, moving to New York City. She landed the role of Si-Tchun, a lady-in-waiting, in the 1946 Broadway musical about the Orient, Lute Song, starring Mary Martin and a pre-fame Yul Brynner. The show's producer told her, "You look like you could be Chinese."
After passing a screen test, she moved to California and signed a seven-year contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM) in 1949, she later remarked, "Joining Metro was like walking into a dream world." Her combination of attractive appearance—centered on her large eyes—and somewhat distant and understated manner made her hard at first for MGM to cast and publicize. Davis appeared in eleven feature films, usually typecast as a "loyal housewife", "responsible young mother", or "the steady woman". Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Leslie Caron, and Janet Leigh were among the actresses with whom she competed for roles at MGM."

[quote]While exact plot details are being kept under wraps, the movie has been described as a 1969-set ensemble piece that in some way involves Manson and the murder of Sharon Tate. Tarantino will produce, along with David Heyman and Shannon McIntosh. Several big-name stars are still circling the secretive project, with Margot Robbie and Tom Cruise being eyed for big roles. After a heated bidding war, Sony picked up the rights to the feature back in November. The studio has set an Aug. 9, 2019, release date. That day also marks the 50th anniversary of the murders of Tate and her friends by the followers of Manson. Sony declined to comment on the most recent casting news. DiCaprio hasn't been seen on the big screen since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant, but has lined up numerous high-profile projects, including a reunion with longtime collaborator Martin Scorsese for a Teddy Roosevelt biopic at Paramount. The actor is repped by LBI and Hansen Jacobson.
Release date is Sharon's death? Tacky. Very tacky.

White House readies order on withdrawing from NAFTA
A draft order has been submitted for the final stages of review and could be unveiled late this week or early next week, the officials said. The effort, which still could change in the coming days as more officials weigh in, would indicate the administration’s intent to withdraw from the sweeping pact by triggering the timeline set forth in the deal.
“NAFTA’s been very, very bad for our country,” he said in a speech last week in Kenosha, Wisconsin. “It’s been very, very bad for our companies and for our workers, and we’re going to make some very big changes or we are going to get rid of NAFTA once and for all.”
Peter Navarro, the head of Trump’s National Trade Council, drafted the executive order in close cooperation with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. The executive order was submitted this week to the staff secretary for the final stages of review, according to one of the White House officials.
The draft executive order could be a hardball negotiating tactic designed to bring Mexico and Canada to the table to renegotiate NAFTA. But once Trump sets the withdrawal process in motion, the prospects for the U.S. pulling out of one of the largest trade deals on the globe become very real.

Stairway to Heaven.
The poetic storytelling nature of Robert Plant's lyrics combined with Jimmy Page's brilliant musical composition places "Stairway To Heaven" as the number one rock song of all time. Mr. Page's arrangement of a dramatic crescendo type development with the song passing through stages along the way lend to his (and John Paul Jones) influence by classical music. His guitar solo in this song is one of his greatest played with undeniable passion and ease. "Stairway To Heaven" is a legendary song composed and performed by the greatest rock musicians of all time, Led Zeppelin.

Earlier this month, figure skater Adam Rippon earned the distinction of becoming the first openly gay U.S. athlete to ever qualify for the Winter Olympics. Unfortunately, he’ll have to enter the opening ceremonies in PyeongChang behind Vice President Mike Pence, who is known for his history of anti-LGBTQ advocacy, about which President Trump has reportedly joked around the White House.
“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?” Rippon said in an interview with USA TODAY Sports this week. “I’m not buying it.”
In 2000, Pence refused to support the Ryan White Care Act, which funds HIV treatment for those who can’t afford it, if the bill did not provide funding for ex-gay therapy. Pence subsequently stated, through spokespeople, that claims he supported ex-gay therapy were a “mischaracterization.”
That comment rings hollow given Pence’s other anti-LGBTQ beliefs. For example, in 2007, he opposed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) because he felt employers should be allowed to fire or refuse to hire people who engage in “homosexual behavior.” He’s also widely thought to be the primary influencer for the Trump administration’s many anti-LGBTQ initiatives.
Rippon doesn’t want to even meet Pence, if he can help it. “I don’t think he has a real concept of reality,” the 28-year-old skater said. “To stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory. If he’s okay with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called ‘shitholes,’ I think he should really go to church.”
The skater likewise reiterated that he he will refuse to go to the White House for a post-Olympic celebration. Last week, he explained to the BBC that he felt he had a duty as a role model not to entertain Trump’s invitation.

In her first television interview since leaving NBC, former "Today" show host Ann Curry is speaking out about the firing of her former co-host Matt Lauer and the pervasive "verbal sexual" harassment during her time at NBC. Lauer was fired over "inappropriate sexual behavior" last November.
"I can say that I would be surprised if -- if -- many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment -- that existed. I think it'd be surprising if someone said that they didn't see that. So it was p -- a verbal -- sexual --," she said on "CBS This Morning" Wednesday.
"She just said that verbal sexual harassment was pervasive," "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell said.
"Yeah," Curry replied.
"At -- at NBC at the time when you were there?" O'Donnell said.
"I don't wanna cause more pain. But no, I'm -- you are asking me a very direct question. I'm an honest person. I wanna tell you that it was. Yes. Period," Curry replied.
Asked if Lauer was behind her firing, Curry said,
"No, no, because I -- I don't know what was all behind it. I do know that -- it hurt like hell. It wasn't a fun moment. I've learned a great deal about myself. I've really at this point let it go. I've just let it go. And I -- and I -- and I think that it's time to -- it's been years and I want to sort of really move on from that. I mean, it's -- it's -- it's -- you know, at this point I'm thinking Hakuna Matata. You know, it's just sort of over. But, no, I think -- I think that -- I think that the real question, in my view, is what are we going to do with all of this anger? And it's not just, obviously, about where I used to work. It's not about where you're now working. But it's about the problem that's pervasive across industries in work places across America. And this is actually the issue. And the question is, ultimately, what are we going to do about it? And I-- I wonder if we-- if we keep focusing only on these individual scandals -- if we're actually going to move off of that foot into creating something better in the future."

‘X-Files’ Event Series to Return to Fox
Daniel Holloway, Senior TV Reporter, April 20, 2017 | 04:15PM PT
The truth is still out there. Again.
Fox has ordered a new 10-episode revival of “The X-Files,” the classic television sci-fi drama that returned to the network’s air with a limited series last year. The new installments — billed as a continuation of the 10-episode 2016 run, will premiere during the 2017-18 television season. The production will again reunite original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson with series creator and showrunner Chris Carter, and is slated to begin production this summer.
“The X-Files” tells the story of Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson), paranormal investigators for the FBI.
“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why ‘The X-Files’ has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said David Madden, President, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of ‘The X-Files’.”
The 2016 limited-series revival of “The X-Files” averaged a multiplatform audience of 16 million viewers, according to Fox. It also averaged a 4.8 rating in the 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen live-plus-seven numbers, making it the fifth highest-rated broadcast series of the season.
“The X-Files” premiered on Fox in 1993. It became one of the definitive programs of the network’s early years, earning 16 Primetime Emmy Awards over its initial nine-season run.
Fox in recent years has leaned heavily into revivals of successful past series, bringing back “X-Files”and “Prison Break,” which is currently in the middle of a nine-episode run, as well as “24: Legacy” earlier this season.
The 2016 “X-Files” revival received a lukewarm reception from critics. In his review for Variety, Brian Lowry wrote, “While the performers have aged in only the most flattering of ways, and Fox has milked the build-up for all it’s worth, there’s a feeling that everyone is just going through the motions, despite the durability of the show’s central conceit about distrusting authority and the prospect of shadowy conspiracies reaching into the highest levels of government and business.”
Fox on Thursday also released teaser art for the new “X-Files”:

Why the Gay Inspiration for NBC’s Musical Theater Series Was Rewritten as Straight
NBC’s new series “Rise” may be based on a true story, but one significant aspect of it has been altered for network TV. Its central character, inspired by a real-life teacher who was originally closeted, has been rewritten as straight.
Jason Katims, who created “Friday Night Lights,” wrote his series inspired in part by Michael Sokolove’s book “Drama High: The Incredible True Story of a Brilliant Teacher, a Struggling Town, and the Magic of Theater.” The book was about teacher Lou Volpe, who controversially put on a production of “Spring Awakening” at his high school in a small, blue-collar town. Volpe was closeted before eventually coming out later in life.
In contrast, “Rise’s” Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) isn’t closeted at all and will not be coming out. This alteration for NBC’s show drastically changes the resonance of Lou choosing “Spring Awakening” to be his first show for the high school, since the play centers on teenagers dealing with the challenges of all aspects of sexuality, including homosexuality.
During the Television Critics Association press tour panel for the show on Tuesday, Katims explained he changed this aspect of his main character to be able to connect with the story, but that he didn’t want to “shy away from issues of sexuality.” He pointed out that “Rise” will still have LGBT elements, particularly focusing on its young characters — including a trans character and another character who is grappling with his sexuality.
Katims also noted that he changed other aspects of Lou’s family life, such giving his teenage son a drinking problem. “It becomes a major storyline and becomes a very powerful part of storytelling,” he said.
And of course, while the overall story focuses on musical theater, Katims can’t avoid including some football. “As much as it’s about high school theater, it’s also about the football team,” he said. “That storyline also becomes a big part of the show. And I love the idea of striking a balance between the two of them.”
“Rise” also features Rosie Perez and “Moana” star Auli’i Cravalho. It premieres on March 13 on NBC.

Apparently, he got on the team at the expense of Ross Miner, who, according to this comment on Pink News was in a gay relationship until he turned 'straight' two years ago and started dating women.
"As for playing the "Gay Card" ....... Ross Minor was in a gay relationship with fellow Boston Figure Skating Club member Harrison Choate up until about 2 years ago when Ross decided to start dating women, because it would be good for his fame |(career). Ross even got signed by sports company IMG for a while. It was quite a nasty break up. Ross decided he was done with all gay people as IMG started promoting him as the perfect all American, Butch Heterosexual skater. Needless to say US Figure Skating got a bit nervous about this.
So playing playing the "Gay Card",...... quite the opposite was true. Ross is a in dangerous psychological space and is a huge PR risk. US Figure Skating acted wisely from their brand protection point of view... also wisely from a competitive point of view as Adams podium history is recent and more frequent.'

Let's discuss "Tales of the City."
When it originally debuted on PBS, I didn't watch it. Then a woman I worked with was raving about it. So one Saturday night, PBS did a marathon rebroadcast that started at midnight and I bing watched the entire thing in one sitting.
Unfortunately, at the time, PBS felt the need to run a disclaimer during breaks in the show that reminded us that the material in the show was from a different era and didn't reflect modern culture. I had never seen that on PBS before and felt it was a comment towards the gay sex.

This New App Is Pledging to End Dating Discrimination
Let’s face it: Dating is hard enough. While most of the action has moved from the gay bar to any number of dating and social apps, new technology has introduced a whole set of new problems and pitfalls while finding your Prince Charming.
Luckily, a new app is out to help you avoid kissing so many frogs along the way.
Chappy has been helping men find more meaningful connections by allowing users to specify upfront if they’re looking for “Mr. Right” or “Mr. Right Now” and moderating profiles to include valid face photos. However, it’s not what users are including in their profiles that sets Chappy apart; it’s what’s not there — racism, ableism, ageism and discrimination.
On Chappy, users are required to agree to the Chappy Pledge promising they’ll be respectful to all users. The pledge reads in full:
“At Chappy we believe beauty is found in the way you treat others. Discrimination by race, religion, disability, gender identity, age or anything else is strictly forbidden. By using Chappy, users commit to treating their fellow members with respect, kindness and honesty, without judgment or bias.”
Or, more simply put, “Don’t be a d*ck.” The result is a much more pleasant (and less infuriating) dating experience, blissfully browsing authentic profiles without fear.
Check out how users reacted to the pledge in the video below:
We spoke to the app’s founders — reality-TV star Ollie Locke, Badoo co-founder Max Cheremkhin and mobile marketing expert Jack Rogers — about the inspiration of the pledge and how they made it central to Chappy’s mission.
Why was it important for you to include the pledge in the app?
We care about the community, and we want people to enjoy dating, not feel alienated. From our market research, we found that people weren’t being respectful on gay dating apps and we wanted to get in front the issue and address it. Chappy is a space in which you can celebrate your differences.
What was the process like writing the pledge?
The Pledge was a team project, born from experiences and research. We drew on the strengths of everyone in the team – having a diverse company helped shape The Pledge creatively, but it also ensured it had real nuance in market. We interviewed 40 diverse gay men and simply listened to their stories. It was cathartic and, empowering, we really wanted to change the existing market offering and give the community something new, something valuable. We finally chose 16 men, took the concept to production house, Pink Banana, which helped us produce the final product.
Has anything surprised you about the response to the pledge from users?
It’s a bold move in our space – so we weren’t surprised by the response. However, we were surprised by how quickly it happened. We received a huge amount of heartwarming messages and heartbreaking stories. People suddenly saw an alternative, they were grateful and that was especially emotional for us. It helped motivate us to push The Pledge as far as we could. Without sharing personal stories there was just a sense of relief and gratitude for what we are trying to do.
How do you think the pledge will change how users interact on Chappy vs. other dating/social apps?
That’s the idea that underpins The Chappy Pledge – we’re actively doing what we can to stamp out all ‘isms’ on our platform. Ageism, fatism, racism – all of them. However, we accept we may never eradicate prejudice from within the gay community, we are, as a brand taking steps to protect people from having to even see profiles with sexual ‘preferences’. We believe listing these ‘preferences’ is inherently discriminatory and there is no place for discrimination on Chappy. It’s why we have banned all racial preferences within users profiles – even those that may be deemed positive. We hope that spreads into how people treat people, in general, including other platforms.

I’ve been working out with the same training partner for a decade. I think he’s gorgeous, very Italian, hairy chest and legs. You could call him a Guido and not be far off. I’ve wanted to see him naked since I met him. He wears tank tops which are too narrow to cover a sliver of reddish-brown nipple skin on either side, the buds never pop out. It drives me wild. He has baggy shorts, so I can’t know the details of his package, but I know it’s large by the way it sways when he walks. He never showers at the gym, I always do. He knows I’m gay; I just figured he wasn’t comfortable with the idea of being in there with me.
Today, I was showering and his shadow approached the wall of the open showers. My heart jumped. Then he appeared. Naked. He came to the shower head next to me and turned the water on. He stood, facing me, waiting for the water to get hot. His full chest is beautiful, his nipples alone would make me hard. But he also has a large dense dark brown bush over an average sized cock, with a head as big as a plum (and the same color).
He talked as if nothing was unique about the situation. He probably thought nothing of it, and he underestimated how I would react. I had to turn around. I could feel myself stirring. I’m glad he was so comfortable, but it put me off-kilter. I hope he didn’t figure it out. I guess I’ll know the next time we work out. Before I arrived home, I took care of business while driving. It was the first time I creamed my jeans since high school. I still can’t believe I finally saw him naked. Did you ever have a similar experience, when you thought you’d never see someone naked, and you really wanted to, and it finally happened? I’m still giddy from it.

Donald is a stress eater and seems to be packing on the pounds at an alarming rate since he took office. Next to the fit Trudeau, he looks to be approaching morbidly obese territory. I wonder if he regrets not having Chris Christie around, he would have appeared a bit slimmer in comparison.

A member of the Indiana Farm Bureau, the National Rifle Association and the Austin Church of God, he’s an anti-abortion, pro-gun, self-described “Bible-poundin’, aisle-runnin’” Pentecostal. This unusual profile for a Democrat makes him a species nearing extinction within the national party, but it’s also the very reason he keeps getting reelected here.
He wanted to talk about the importance of public education, affordable health care and a living wage, and the moral necessity of addressing the opioids scourge. Six days later, dressed in a sharp suit and a striped tie, he would stress those priorities—and also deliver a declaration of identity:
“I am a Democrat. I am a Democrat from rural Indiana.”

Two men who ordered programs for their September wedding from Vistaprint but instead received a boxful of anti-gay pamphlets warning, “Satan entices your flesh with evil desires,”
They have filed a lawsuit claiming breach of contract and emotional pain.
“This was by far the most direct, personal, and aggressive act of homophobia either of us has experienced to date,” they added, regarding the shipment of homophobic pamphlets, which the couple received on the eve of their ceremony and a party for 100 guests.
When contacted by Yahoo Lifestyle, Vistaprint spokesperson Sara Nash offered the following response: “Vistaprint would never discriminate against customers for their sexual orientation. We pride ourselves on being a company that celebrates diversity and enables customers all over the world to customize products for their special events. We have just been made aware of this incident in the last few hours. We understand how upsetting it would be for anyone to receive materials such as these the night before their wedding and we have immediately launched an internal investigation. Until we have had the opportunity to complete our investigation, we cannot comment further.”

I work in a small office, and my job is very independent of my coworkers. I really don't have much interaction with them other than we sit together. My commute is almost two hours each way, a fact I knew going into it, so there's one strike against me. It's a really good job and pays well, I don't want to leave and find something else. But this commute is killing me, by Thursday I'm so drained physically and mentally I'm not at my optimum performance.
I want to ask my boss to let me work from home. I will say that the time I save not commuting can be spent working and being productive. I know he won't go for every day, so maybe I start small and ask to try out Wednesdays? That gives me a break in the middle of the week from my commuting hell.
Have any of you made this request, and how did it go? I'm very passive and hate asking for things.

I accuse everyone with popular threads of being a troll.
I'm too stupid to come up with clever threads and far too dull to come up with any funny threads.
It kills me when someone else's thread becomes popular so I have to infest any popular thread I see with troll comments--everyone is a troll as far as I'm concerned.
I love calling everyone "John" or "poo shoes" or "PMBT". I'm desperate for these memes to catch on but sadly I'm the only one who uses them.
When you use the ignore button on me a third of the comments disappear.
I don't really have a life so I spend my time here calling out anyone who is funnier, wittier or more articulate than me.
You all hate me but I don't care, any attention makes me happy even negative attention.
Please don't hate me, just pity me.

Starting with Brent Collins, who played Dr. Jonathan Newman on The Golden Girls and Wallingford on Another World.
[quote]A dwarf, Collins was also diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, which traditionally causes its sufferers to grow larger than normal in size. Late in 1987, Collins grew rapidly from his short stature, which led to his fatal heart attack. This situation is very rare, and very few cases have been documented in medical records.

Whether it is because of the power he will hold or the power he brings to a specific type of people, thousands around the world are fearful of Donald Trump’s eminent US presidency. But if Baba Vanga -- a blind clairvoyant from Bulgaria -- is to be believed, Barack Obama will be the last US president, which is another reason to be on high alert.
According to Vanga’s predictions, “Everyone will put their hopes in [Obama] to end [economical turmoil], but the opposite will happen. He will bring the country down and conflicts between north and south states will escalate.” She also said that he will be the "last one." However, like most of her other prophecies, this particularly chilling one came with no explanations.
Some have taken it to mean the complete end of the world. Other reports have claimed that it could mean a change in the current setup of US politics. Trump will not officially move into the White House until Jan. 20, 2017, which means that Obama still has time to act on this -- and there is enough evidence that a large group of the American people are angry about the election results. But using his last few months as POTUS to change the US political landscape will undoubtedly also cause uproar, especially since a president-elect has already been announced.
Others believe that Vanga's prediction simply means the role of the US president will be changed, and that the world will alter its understanding of that kind of power. News.com.au argues that Trump 2016 and Kanye 2020 -- which rapper Kanye West himself claimed at the 2015 VMAs and has since received quite a following -- could mean that the most powerful position in the world could soon read as nothing more than a glorified celebrity.
