Fauci Flop? New Documentary About COVID Czar Fails To Disclose Box Office Results

A new documentary called "Fauci," released by National Geographic Documentary Films two weeks ago, honors Dr. Anthony Fauci's work to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic and COVID-19 pandemic. Since the release two weeks ago, there's been no data on ticket sales by major film sites, according to Just The News.

The new documentary was released in theaters across York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, D.C., and New Orleans on Sept. 10. No major film site, including RottenTomatoes.com, Boxoffice Pro, IMDB.com, and BoxOfficeMojo.com, has calculated ticket sales or earnings for the film.

The documentary "follows the renowned infectious disease specialist's work in two health crises: AIDS and the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Fauci agreed to participate as long as it didn't interfere with his work," NYT tweeted.

Shawn Robbins, the chief analyst with Boxoffice Pro, said it's "incredibly uncommon" for a major studio not to release box office earnings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly would not watch a puff-piece about Fauci. Would you?

New BET movie ‘Karen’ is 2021’s most rabidly racist film, as it tries to make hating white women culturally cool

Black Entertainment Television’s ‘Karen’ is a truly toxic movie riddled with the same identity-based hate that it supposedly aims to expose. The fact it’s been made at all makes a mockery of the serious subject matter.

When people inquire about what I do for a living and I tell them I’m a film critic, they often ask, “What’s that like?” My pat answer is, “It’s better than digging ditches.”

Having suffered through the atrociously awful new BET original movie ‘Karen’, I realize that statement isn’t true, as I would’ve been better off spending that hour and a half digging a ditch in which to bury myself alive.

‘Karen’ tells the story of Malik and Imani, a young black couple who move into a mostly white suburb of Atlanta. The titular character is their white racist neighbor Karen Drexler, who’s like the creature from the white lagoon, as menacing music accompanies her every appearance on screen.

How the CDC used the movie ‘Contagion’ to exploit the anthrax plot and increase their staff and budgets

Newly released documents have revealed the extent of the CDC’s role in the 2011 film, and how they milked the positive publicity. But they also beg the question why they weren’t more prepared for a real pandemic, like Covid.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the fastest-growing federal agencies of recent decades. In 1987, their budget was $590 million but by 2020 it had ballooned to over $8 billion, leading journalist Eric Boehm to observe, “If the agency had grown with inflation since 1987, it would have a budget of about $1.3 billion today. Total federal spending, meanwhile, has grown from a hair over $1 trillion in 1987 to $4.4 trillion last year—which means that the CDC's budget has grown faster [than] the government’s overall spending.”

Biden Says Children Must Be Masked, But Celebrities Are Exempt? - (Video)

The Emmys were skewered on social media as observers took notice of the lack of coronavirus safety measures, especially masks.

The 2021 awards show was one of the first to return to the typical in-person format after over a year of delayed and adjusted ceremonies like the Oscars and Golden Globes. Some of the stars in attendance on Sunday were seen on the broadcast wearing masks or observing social distancing suggestions.

Although host Cedric the Entertainer noted on the broadcast that everyone in attendance had to show evidence of vaccination, as well as test negative for COVID-19, stars like Seth Rogen, came out swinging at the lack of requirements. He wasn’t the only one.

Reinventing the deliciously female Jessica Rabbit is a step too far from the joyless revisionists who are destroying Disney

The news Jessica Rabbit is to be reimagined in a role “more relevant to today’s culture” confirms that common-sense has left the building at Disney, a company which now seems to focus more on virtue signalling than entertaining.

Okay, I have to admit to something that’s not exactly cool. Ready? I had a crush on a cartoon character when I was a teenager. It wasn’t Marge from The Simpsons. Nor Betty Rubble from The Flintstones. Nope.

It was Jessica Rabbit, from the late ’80s Disney flick ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’. Nightclub singer Jessica Rabbit was most definitely – voluptuously – female and, to my adolescent self, very, very sexy... er, for a drawing.

The Dragon Like Legs of Dong Tao Chicken

A rare Vietnamese chicken breed called the Dong Tao, prized for its delicious meat, has one of the most thickest legs usually not seen among birds of that size. This chicken breed is endemic to the Dong Tao commune in Khoai Chau district, about 30km from Hanoi. Once bred exclusively to serve the royal family and mandarins, this rare breed is now prized by chicken breeders and its meat is served in expensive restaurants that cater to the wealthy. The legs themselves are a delicacy.

SPIELBERG’S RAPTOR

YOU JUST FOUND SPIELBERG’S RAPTOR!”

Paleontologist Robert Bakker’s exclamation to his colleague, Jim Kirkland, on the phone back in 1991 was quite literally about a big discovery.

Digging in Gaston Quarry in Grand County, Utah, Kirkland had uncovered fossils of giant newly discovered raptor. Snout to tail, the ferocious creature would’ve been about 20 feet long and six feet tall, with long, curved, razor-sharp talons on each foot measuring nearly a foot in length.

At the time, Bakker was consulting with some of the dinosaur artists on Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Jurassic Park, and he had a problem. He knew the now-iconic Velociraptors in the movie were going to be about three times larger than they actually were — or exactly the size of Kirkland’s soon-to-be-named Utahraptor (pronounced “Utah-raptor”).

Biden to meet Disney chief, other CEOs in 'rallying cry' for vaccine mandates

U.S. President Joe Biden will meet on Wednesday with business leaders as he pushes companies to require workers to be vaccinated amid a surge in COVID-19 infections among those without a dose.

Participants in the meeting include the chief executives of Walt Disney Co, Microsoft Corp and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc, the White House said.

Biden last week announced here vaccine mandates for nearly all federal employees, federal contractors, and larger companies as the number of U.S. infections continued to rise, hospital beds in some parts of the country filled up and mask requirements returned.

Some Republican-led states are defying recommendations from health officials, citing economic or freedom-of-choice arguments. Biden, a Democrat, has chosen to dig in on the issue, embracing vaccine requirements despite fierce opposition.

Still, opinion polls have shown a majority Americans support some form of mandates.

Alec Baldwin Calls Gov. Ron DeSantis ‘The New Jim Jones’

Boss Baby star and Democrat Party activist Alec Baldwin attacked Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) as “the new Jim Jones,” comparing the governor to the cult leader, who more than 40 years ago, led the massacre at Jonestown, where more than 900 American transplants committed suicide. It was the largest loss of civilian life in U.S. history until the terror attacks of 9/11.

“DeSantis is the new Jim Jones…” Baldwin wrote, without offering any further explanation.

Monica Lewinsky Says Bill Clinton 'Should Want to Apologise' Over 90s Sex Scandal

A former White House intern who happens to have been engaged in an affair with ex-US President Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky is now one of the producers of the show "Impeachment: American Crime Story", set to hit small screens on Tuesday.

When asked about whether she feels Bill Clinton owes her an apology over the sex scandal that led to his impeachment back in the 1990s, Monica Lewinsky noted that she does not need it, but said he "should want" to apologise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Impeachment: American Crime Story airs tonight at 10PM eastern on FX.

The Great Replacement Comes for Captain America: He’s Now Black. In Marvel Cinematic Universe, Whites Have No Place

The Great Replacement will not leave anything created by the Historic American Nation untouched. That includes Captain America, the quintessential Historic American. Two years after killing off the most important Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, the very white Captain America and Iron Man, in Avengers: Endgame, Disney plans a fourth theatrical release: Captain America 4. But now it will star black actor Anthony Mackie, also the lead in the Falcon and the Winter Soldier Disney + miniseries, where he was sort of a moral compass showing whites True North; i.e., how to internalize anti-white propaganda, and assist in their own dispossession.

Both projects are the creations of Malcom Spellman, who is half-black, half-Jewish and wholly anti-white:

Porn games are ready for their big data money shot

Nutaku claims that MindGeek has been willing to invest in it because the porn powerhouse simply wants to tap a huge, underserved market for hentai games. But a number of adult industry insiders and observers, as well as information security experts, suspect there may be another motive at play: the absolutely obscene amount of user data that companies can potentially mine out of porn games. Data is, after all, far better than cash in the bank for any modern digital company — but its rampant collection is extremely worrying for any modern digital consumer.

‘I Don’t Think Hillary Will Watch’: Producer Touts New TV Series Based on Bill & Monica Sex Scandal

FX’s new television series “Impeachment: American Crime Story”, set to air on 7 September, is based on Jeffrey Toobin's 2000 book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President, offering a fresh glance at the public saga that involved then-President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

A new 10-part television drama series is set to revisit the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky saga and the national controversy that emerged in its wake.

“No one, as far as we know, from the Clinton camp has seen this series,” executive producer of Impeachment: American Crime Story, Brad Simpson, said at Friday’s virtual Television Critics Association (TCA) panel ahead of the airing of the show on September 7.

Bard news as flakes take on Shakespeare: Globe Theatre gives audience trigger warnings over 'upsetting' Romeo and Juliet - and even provides a Samaritans helpline number for after the show

London's Globe Theatre has come under fire for giving audience members trigger warnings about 'upsetting' themes in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - and even providing a number for the Samaritans for after the show.

The Globe - which is on the site of the Bard's original playhouse - alerts the audience before performances that suicide, drug use and fake blood feature in a production of the tragedy running from June to October.

Theatre staff even provide audience members with a Samaritans helpline number and the details of mental health charity the Listening Place in case they need emotional support after watching the play.

Late-night comedians carry water for Biden after Afghan speech

Some late-night comedians are working to deflect blame against President Joe Biden’s Afghanistan policy following the Taliban takeover of the country.

While some media outlets criticized Biden for the botched troopp withdrawal, many left-leaning comics, focused their ire on Republicans following Biden's address on Monday, where he said he stood "squarely behind" it despite the chaos that followed.

CBS’s "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert attacked former President Donald Trump for his response to Biden’s speech and ultimately defended Biden’s policies.

Chris Evans goes full Captain America, assembling a cavalcade of warmongering Washington avengers to discuss the Middle East

The gullible Hollywood star exposes himself to be a useful idiot for the military/intelligence industrial complex by producing a blindly orthodox new six-part discussion series on Yemen, Iran, Palestine, Syria and Saudi Arabia.

As the US limps out of Afghanistan with its tail between its legs, and millions suffer and die under the most brutal of American-induced maladies from Syria to Palestine to Yemen and across the Middle East, I implore you to fear not, as Captain America is now on the case.

Chris Evans, the movie star best known for playing the patriotic leader of the Avengers, Steve Rogers, in the multi-billion-dollar Marvel Cinematic Universe, is out to solve the world’s problems and has set his dazzling blue eyes and decidedly empty head on the mess that is the Middle East.

Stephen Colbert likening Capitol Hill protesters to Taliban is not just a dumb joke, but DEMONIZATION of fellow Americans

Comedian Stephen Colbert comparing the Taliban to January 6 Capitol rioters may seem silly and dumb, but when he’s joined by a chorus of Democrat activists, it becomes clear they’re really saying the quiet part out loud.

“Why should our soldiers be fighting radicals in a civil war in Afghanistan? We’ve got our own on Capitol Hill,” Colbert said during his show on Monday night, showing the photos of the January riot that Democrats like him insist was an “insurrection” against Our Democracy.

The Suicide Squad is a grotesque, grisly, jingoistic state-sponsored horror show propagandising US foreign policy in Latin America

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is the latest superhero military propaganda vehicle, courtesy of the Pentagon’s Hollywood office. The result is a cynical, bloody glamorisation of US black ops in Central and South America.

The Suicide Squad is struggling at the pandemic-affected box office but has met with acclaim from critics and praise from audiences who have been largely starved of tentpole movies over the last couple of years. Despite its R-rating, ultra-violent visuals and the preponderance of depressing monologues where the various squad members outline their miserable backstories, it looks on course to be one of the best received movies of 2021.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The good news is that the film is a box-office dud.

The new media company, which has yet to be named, was formed by former Disney executives Tom Staggs and Kevin Mayer and is backed by Blackstone, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Hello Sunshine, which was founded by Witherspoon, 45, five years ago, will be the company's first acquisition.

Jodie Whittaker’s torrid term in the TARDIS proves that, if Doctor Who hopes to have one, the future isn’t female

Woke showrunner Chris Chibnall cast the first female Doctor Who to ‘fix’ the show. But now they’re abandoning the franchise after the fans abandoned them. If anyone has a time machine, can they go back and stop them taking over?

If you thought that Dr. Fauci was the most hated Doctor in the world, you would be mistaken. That title belongs to Jodie Whittaker and her portrayal of the thirteenth incarnation of Doctor Who.

To Whovians around the globe, when an actor announces they are stepping down from the iconic role of everyone’s favorite Time Lord, it’s a bittersweet moment. Every Doctor has had his loyal fans who are sad to see him go. But, in the case of Whittaker, who announced she’d be stepping down from the role on Thursday, the overwhelming reaction among the Doctor Who fanbase was one of celebration.

Hamilton, The Musical, Will Be Getting At Least $30 Million in Federal Aid. Hamilton, The Man, Is Partly to Blame.

The past year and a half has been a trying time for the theater industry. Though auditoriums around the country used to host music, dancing, and laughter, they have now grown accustomed to silence, and perhaps even a bit of dust. Productions that were not killed outright have been on life support, clinging to desperate hopes that the pandemic will be over sooner rather than later.

One of the most famous shows caught up in this mess is the musical Hamilton. Though it has been wildly successful since its 2015 opening, the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns have forced it to go into hibernation like nearly every other show. However, as the New York Times recently reported, the musical is set to receive $30 million in federal aid, and could receive up to $50 million in total.

Militaries Plunder Science Fiction for Technology Ideas, But Turn a Blind Eye to the Genre’s Social Commentary

By Will Slocombe, University of Liverpool

Military planning is a complicated endeavour, calling upon experts in logistics and infrastructure to predict resource availability and technological advancements. Long-range military planning, deciding what to invest in now to prepare armed forces for the world in thirty years’ time, is even more difficult.

One of the most interesting tools for thinking about future defence technology isn’t big data forecasting and the use of synthetic training environments, but narrative and imagination. And we get this from science fiction.

Welcome to 'Tamalewood!' Major studios, including Netflix and NBCUniversal, are fleeing California in favor of New Mexico to take advantage of 35% tax incentive

Hollywood is fleeing California in favor of New Mexico, enticed by the state's 35 per cent tax breaks and looser COVID-19 restrictions.

The tax incentive this year has already brought $623 million into the Land of Enchantment- or Tamalewood as the locals have nicknamed it.

Netflix and NBCUniversal both built production studios in New Mexico this year after signing deals a few years back. Netflix penned a $2billion deal to produce content in the state over the next decade while NBCUniversal committed to a $500 million deal.

Netflix's desert plateau southeast of Mesa Del Sol containing 10 new sound stages and training facilities is now the company's main North American location and one of the largest film production complexes in the country.

Oliver Stone’s new JFK assassination doc is being ignored by the MSM… a sure sign he might be onto something

The establishment media is celebrating odd, sexually charged movies at the Cannes Film Festival – yet won’t even acknowledge Oliver Stone’s foray back into the troubling case of President John F. Kennedy’s murder. I wonder why?

Last week, Oliver Stone premiered his new documentary about the Kennedy assassination titled ‘JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass’, at the Cannes festival.

You’d think that Stone, the polarizing, two-time Best Director Academy Award winner, whose filmJFK created such a furor it led to the US government passing the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, premiering a controversial JFK assassination documentary at Cannes would be very big news. You’d be wrong.

Songwriter Iain Archer tells MPs streaming model is unethical

But in written evidence to the DCMS inquiry, he said that even if a song he had written was streamed one million times he might only earn about £450.

"On a song such as Be A Nobody by the artist Soak, this work had 1,402,712 streams in the year 2014 for which my publisher collected £118.80," Mr Archer said.

"I am clearly severely out of pocket on the costs incurred.

"Over six years I stand to make £1,355 from this song on 5,671,142 streams.

"All the above will also be reduced by a publisher's cut, management commission and tax."

Mr Archer said that level of payment for his work was "clearly not sustainable".

Diversity as Cover for the Creativity Crisis

The push for diversity comes at a moment when Hollywood creativity is at a low. Almost all original ideas are considered too much of a creative risk, especially in film

So maybe one of the reasons Hollywood accepts all these diversity mandates is that this will open up a new market: remaking or remixing almost every hit movie to correct the lack there of racial diversity in the original

Disney already prints money making live action remakes of almost every one of their animated films.

The next logical step is for them to remake even somewhat recent hits but in a new kind of Technicolor — BIPOColor.

It’s not creative bankruptcy — it’s a morally much-needed diversity remastering of a film.

The “racial reckoning” provided a self-righteous cover for a black “Pretty in Pink,” “Black to the Future,” etc.

"It doesn't matter what the name is, I take everybody very seriously, and it shows," Abbott said of McConaughey while speaking on a segment on Fox News Sunday. "I will tell you two things, and that is if you look at my polling numbers, they are very, very strong. In addition to that, I have $55 million in the bank already, and I’m a very aggressive fundraiser."

"So I will have the resources and the backing of a lot of people across the state of Texas to ensure that whoever decides to run against me, we will be able to win," the Republican governor went on to state.

Review: The Obamas’ Netflix Series ‘We the People’ Is a Woke ‘Schoolhouse Rock’

Imagine Schoolhouse Rock crossed with a corporate diversity seminar — along with a little acid — and you’ve got something close to Netflix’s We the People — a ten-part animated series from Barack and Michelle Obama that seeks to “reframe” how children think about the U.S. government, American history, and civic engagement.

The best that be said about this superficial civics lesson is that each episode is only five minutes long. The series brings together psychedelic animation and instantly forgettable songs to teach kids about citizenship, voting, taxes, and activism. In case you were wondering which way the political winds are blowing, the musical line-up includes left-wing stalwarts Lin-Manuel Miranda, Andra Day, Janelle Monae, and Bebe Rexha.

Film censors bow to snowflakes: Classic films including Rocky, Flash Gordon and Star Wars are slapped with stricter ratings to appease woke audiences

Also uprated was 1976 boxing classic Rocky, which was moved from a PG rating on video to a 12A for the 2020 theatrical re-release.

Its reclassification was due to 'moderate violence, mouthed strong language and domestic abuse', the BBFC said.

The extended edition of The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring was moved up to a 12A for its 'moderate fantasy violence and threat,' the BBFC said, bringing it in line with the other two films in the trilogy.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back was also re-released and was classified PG for 'moderate violence and mild threat'. It had been a U film, meaning it was suitable for all ages.

The Elephant Man, the 1980 drama starring Sir Anthony Hopkins and Sir John Hurt, became 12A for 'moderate threat, upsetting scenes and injury detail'.

Netflix may be forced to make a controversial change and you are not going to like it

Netflix has always been adamant that it won't force its users to watch adverts with CEO Reed Hastings saying last year: “We’ve got a much simpler business model, which is just focused on streaming and customer pleasure.

"There’s much more growth in the consumer market than there is in advertising, which is pretty flat.”

However, financial pressures and the growing list of streaming rivals may mean Netflix is forced to change its mind.

“Although Netflix management continues to strongly dismiss the idea of advertising, we think that view will be seen as a strategic mistake if future rates of subscriber growth start to fall short of Street expectations,” said Nathanson.

"Utopia" - Amazon Show Plot Featured Fake Virus, Global Vaccine Program To Sterilize World Population

An Amazon series released at the height of the COVID pandemic revolved around a plot where a virus is deliberately released and then a vaccine offered to a terrified public as a form of population control.

Utopia is a remake of the UK Channel 4 series originally released in 2013 and stars Jessica Rothe, Rainn Wilson, and John Cusack.

The plot centers on a group of comic book fans who discover an unpublished manuscript for a graphic novel which turns out to be a real life plot to fake a global pandemic in order to thin the earth’s population.

People are killed or poisoned to convince them that the virus is real before a traumatized population is convinced to take a vaccine which sterilizes the vast majority of them, lowering the planet’s population to just 500 million people total in a single generation.

The comic book fans are hunted down by a shadowy deep state organization after attempting to expose the conspiracy.

Documents reveal how Ben Affleck got into the CIA, promising to ‘do the Agency proud’

The 2012 spy drama Argo, starring Ben Affleck and based on the real-life CIA operation to exfiltrate six embassy staff trapped in Tehran following the 1979 revolution, was a big publicity boost for the agency.

In late 2012 Ben Affleck was on the promotional circuit for Argo. Naturally, this led to questions about the CIA-Hollywood connection and, in one interview, Affleck commented “Probably Hollywood is full of CIA agents, and we just don’t know it.” When he was asked if he was working for the CIA Affleck replied, “I am, yes, and now you’ve blown my cover.”

Nina Simone’s Family Blame Kamala Harris For Taking Singer’s Estate Away From Them

The singer’s granddaughter claimed that Simone's family no longer runs her estate. “Wanna hold someone accountable,” she wrote. “Ask Kamala Harris why she came for my family.”

Nina Simone’s daughter and grandchildren have declared they will no longer be silent, claiming her estate had been “taken away” from them and they are placing the blame on Vice President Kamala Harris.

It kicked off on Friday evening when RéAnna Simone Kelly, the daughter of Simone’s daughter Lisa Simone Kelly, praised Chlöe Bailey’s sexy rendition of the singer’s iconic song “Feeling Good”.

“Everyone’s coming at @ChloeBailey for her performance…But what y’all don’t understand is that grandma was a free-spirited woman herself,” RéAnna tweeted. “She would’ve loved that performance as much as I do! Relax. Chloe killed it.”

The world is rocked by the arrival of aliens in Invasion teaser trailer

Apple TV+ has a solid hit with its alternative-history sci-fi drama For All Mankind, which just wrapped its second season, and the streaming platform clearly hopes to repeat that success with a new forthcoming sci-fi drama Invasion.

Don't confuse this ambitious project with the 2005 ABC series of the same name about water-based creatures taking over the bodies of people living in a small Texas town after a severe hurricane (basically an aquatic riff on Invasion of the Body Snatchers). Apple TV+'s Invasion is more of a 21st-century riff on War of the Worlds. Shot on four locations on four different continents—New York, Manchester, Morocco, and Japan—the series is intended to "make you question what you would do under extraterrestrial threat," per the official premise, and "takes a global look at how one alien invasion would affect us all."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They are really pushing this UFO/Space Aliens idea really hard!

Who Foresaw a Woke Corporate Dystopia?

Perhaps the 1993 sci-fi satire film Demolition Man with Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Sandra Bullock, and Rob Schneider?

There are probably other satires from the 1990s, which had a lot of political correctness in the early 1990s and pretty widespread revolt as the decade went on.

Children’s cartoon Blue’s Clues features LGBTQ pride parade with drag queen & ‘trans’ animals

A popular children’s television show, Blue’s Clues, has been accused of indoctrinating its young viewers after releasing a LGBTQ singalong with lyrics many adults don’t even understand, in celebration of ‘Pride Month’.

Published on the show’s YouTube channel, the video, titled “The Blue’s Clues Pride Parade Sing-Along,” features a cartoon version of Nina West, an American drag queen, who leads the children in a song set to the tune of ‘The Ants Go Marching’. Floats with animals waving rainbow and transgender flags pass by on the screen as West sings.

The song features words such as “queer,” “trans,” “bi,” as well as “pan” and “non-binary,” with the lyrics displayed at the bottom of the screen so that children can sing along.

For example, as a group of beavers decked out in LGBTQ and trans regalia ride by, the drag queen sings:

You've seen social media posts, even stories on the news about food that has unique and familiar shapes. Locally, Ron Rhoads, of WEHT, has a Funky Fruit segment during his morning weather forecasts. The photos he posts simply get the finder television bragging rights. While others are sold for crazy sums of money to collectors of such oddities.

When I saw a post on Facebook Marketplace about a McDonald's chicken nugget, shaped like the state of Indiana, for sale I laughed. That was until I saw the price. David Cissell is asking $500 for the single Hoosier state-shaped nugget. It IS shaped like our fair state, but $500? Really?

Indiana Is Home To The Strangest Gravesite In The Country, And It’s Right In The Middle Of A Road

Indiana is no stranger to some strange and unusual places, things, and roadside attractions. However, what if we told you that there’s a roadside attraction that isn’t by the side of the road at all? In fact, it’s right in the middle of it. Tucked quietly away in Franklin, Indiana, there’s a grave in the middle of the road. It’s a little weird, sure, but the history behind it is pretty intriguing!

INDIANA FUN FACT – ELVIS PLAYED HIS LAST CONCERT IN THE HOOSIER STATE BEFORE HIS DEATH IN 1977

Welcome to another edition of "Indiana Fun Facts." An ongoing series where I share with you tidbits of trivial knowledge I discover about our home state. In today's edition, we learn that Elvis's last concert took place at a venue in Indianapolis just two months shy of his death.

Throughout his career, no one was a bigger star in the music world than the King of Rock 'n' Roll himself, Elvis Presley. Men wanted to be him, women wanted to be with him, he was charismatic, handsome, and unbelievably talented both on stage and in front of the camera. Unfortunately, like so many other musicians who ride the highest of highs, Elvis succumbed to the vices that often go along with fame when he died at Graceland of heart failure due to abuse of opiates on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.

HOW JON STEWART KILLED COMEDY:

Israel is teetering on the edge of civil war, and what do celebs do? They leap in Tweet first.

Israelis and Palestinians are killing each other. Again. This time it could turn into a full-blown civil war. But never fear, the celebrities have arrived and they're going to settle this millennia-old dispute, in 280 characters.

We mustn't talk about Israel. No, no, no. It's the ultimate political quagmire. Just leave it alone. It's way too complicated and, well, the actual details are ancient and a little bit boring for a generation who define their entire existence in 280 Twitter characters and other social media posts.

A deadly and significant conflagration looks imminent between Israelis and Palestinians, though, and today real people are really dying – including children. But that hasn't stopped a whole load of celebs leaping in Tweet first, as it were.

Bill Maher tests positive for COVID, forcing cancellation of Friday 'Real Time' episode

COVID-19 has sidelined comedian Bill Maher and, for one week at least, his HBO talk show, "Real Time with Bill Maher."

The "Real Time" Twitter account Thursday announced the cancellation of Friday's episode after the fully vaccinated host "tested positive during weekly staff PCR testing for COVID." The tweet continues that Maher "is asymptomatic and feels fine."

"'Real Time' production has taken every precaution following COVID CDC guidelines. No other staff or crew members have tested positive at this time," the tweet says.

Maher, who most assuredly will comment on the situation when he returns to his show, tweeted thanks to well-wishers later Thursday, while noting that he doesn't feel sick. He also lamented missing an episode, ending a streak that he says started in 1993 with an earlier show, ABC's "Politically Incorrect," and extended to "Real Time," which premiered in 2003.

UNHINGED LEFTIST BETTE MIDDLER THREATENS TO KILL UNVACCINATED KIDS

“Entertainer” Bette Middler has called for KILLING children who have not had COVID shots.

Elon Musk's 'SNL' performance was a 'total win': Fox Nation host

Elon Musk Brings Ratings Lift to ‘Saturday Night Live’

Elon Musk’s turn as “Saturday Night Live” host brought the NBC late-night mainstay its third-highest ratings of the season.

The May 8 edition of “SNL” averaged a 4.8 household rating in Nielsen’s overnight metered markets and a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49. That put Musk’s episode at No. 3 behind Dave Chappelle’s outing as host on Nov. 7 and the Oct. 3 season premiere fronted by Chris Rock. Musk tied the ratings mark set Oct. 24 with the episode hosted by Adele with H.E.R. in the music slot.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, made headlines by revealing that he has Asperger syndrome during his opening monologue. Musk marked the rare choice of a business world personality to host the NBC late-night institution although his pop culture profile has grown in recent years thanks to some of his antics and business ventures, all of which were spoofed on “SNL.”

Marvel Boss: Doctor Strange Was Cut from ‘WandaVision’ to Avoid the ‘White Guy’ Showing the Female Lead ‘How Power Works’

The popular Disney+ streaming series WandaVision was originally set to feature a cameo by Marvel superhero Doctor Strange, played by actor Benedict Cumberbatch. But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said the “white guy” was cut so as to avoid him teaching Wanda, the strong female lead, “how power works.

Kevin Feige, made the admission this week revealing that the nine-episode series was going to feature a closing cameo by Doctor Strange. The sorcerer was apparently going to show and help Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) better understand the great powers she had developed during the series, among other ideas that were kicked around. Cumberbatch was even signed to reprise his role as Doctor Strange.

However, Cumberbatch was cut to avoid what Feige called the “white guy” coming in at the end to explain power to Wanda.

Frank Capra’s Defense of Humanity: Cinema Considered as a Moral Institution

Frank Capra (1897-1991) stands as one of the most brilliant directors/producers of the 20th Century, and sadly also one of the least understood- known at best for the film It’s a Wonderful Life played every year as a Christmas tradition, or Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Unbeknownst to even many film connoisseurs today, Capra was not only a pre-eminent cultural warrior who took every opportunity to expose fascist movements during the 1930’s and 1940’s but also fought to provide a positive principled understanding of the divinity mankind’s higher nature in all his works. When asked to put into words what motivated him to create movies he said:

“My films must let every man, woman, and child know that God loves them, that I love them, and that peace and salvation will become a reality only when they all learn to love each other”

Michael B. Jordan Addresses The Possibility Of Playing Black Superman

Actor Michael B. Jordan, who stars in the upcoming adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, recently addressed the possibility of playing a black Superman.

Jordan is no stranger to the question. Back in February 2019, he addressed a rumor that surfaced from Deadline that he might be playing Superman in an upcoming film.

Jordan appeared on Oprah where he stated, “Yeah, that was a rumor, I heard that. I heard that. I heard that. I heard a few rumors buzzing around. I think just to be in those conversations, it’s flattering. It’s very humbling.”

Then after Oprah asked him if he wanted to play Superman, Jordan responded, “It’s tough. You know why because I hate being a businessman also and understanding both sides of the situation. I think there’s a huge upside to it, but there’s being under that microscope and being picked apart and compared to so many different versions of Superman. I would rather do something original.”

Hollywood Was Born In America And Died Under The Influence Of Communist China

Travon Free used his time in the spotlight at the Oscars to scrutinize police for their use of force.

"Today, the police will kill three people, and tomorrow, the police will kill three people, and the day after that, the police will kill three people because, on average, the police in America every day kill three people," Free announced throughout his acceptance speech.

Free, who was a co-winner in the live-action short category, then proceeded to quote the late writer James Baldwin and announced it was "despicable" to be indifferent to the misery black people suffer at the hands of police.

7 Parts Of 'Rapunzel' That Were Really Messed Up

We all know the basics of Rapunzel: girl with long hair imprisoned by an evil witch, prince comes along, climbs up hair, rescues said trapped princess. (Why Rapunzel didn't just cut off her hair, knot it to something and climb down it herself is testimony to the power of Stockholm Syndrome.) But, while the original story seems to draw inspiration from several tales of women trapped in isolated places in various cultures, the Grimm Brothers' version of Rapunzel is the definitive tale — and it's one hell of a bizarre ride.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire located this after we watched Disney's "Tangled" last night. It is one of my favorite recent Disney movies; especially Maximus the horse (the team that animated him were brilliant IMHO). But in the spirit of "wokeness" Disney did sanitize the original tale a wee bit!

Enough of Hollywoke! Hannity blasts the Oscars as ‘a far left protest telling Americans how to think' and says viewership has tanked like it did for NFL when Kaepernick took knee. Megyn Kelly criticizes 'incessant lecturing'

Sean Hannity on Monday night criticized the Oscars for being overly political, agreeing with his former Fox News colleague Megyn Kelly that the 'woke' show had alienated viewers and driven ratings to an all-time low.

Just 9.85 million viewers tuned in - a 58 per cent drop on last year, which was already a record low, with 23.64 million viewers, according to early Nielsen numbers.

Hannity derided the Oscars as 'one big far left protest where self-obsessed celebrities berate the American people and tell them how to think'.

Nolte: Woketard Oscar Ratings Plummet 58%, First Time Below 10 Million Viewers

“In delayed fast national results just released by Nielsen, the 93rd Academy Awards were watched by a mere 9.85 million, with a dismal rating of 1.9 among the 18-49 demographic,” reports the far-left Deadline.

How dreadful is that? Well, last year’s Oscars used to be the lowest-rated in history, and this is a collapse of 58 percent below that. In the key 25-54 age demo, the collapse was a whopping – this is not a typo – 64 percent.

For comparison, just three years ago, total viewership dropped below 30 million for the first time in the ceremony’s recorded history.

The final numbers will be in later today or tomorrow, but holy cow. Who expected this? I mean, other than absolutely everybody.

Oscar Nominee Andra Day: School Textbooks ‘Are Designed to Continue White Supremacy’

Oscar-nominated star Andra Day has claimed the textbooks used in American schools are designed to perpetuate “white supremacy,” alleging they deliberately downplay or hide the accomplishments of black historical figures, including singer Billie Holiday, whom she plays in the Hulu movie The United States vs. Billie Holiday.

The pop star, who is a best actress nominee for her role in the movie, also praised Stacey Abrams (D) in a wide-ranging interview with left-wing cultural critic Roxane Gay for The Hollywood Reporter.

During the conversation, Andra Day attacked school textbooks, claiming they frequently omit historical accounts of black people, like the controversy surrounding Billie Holiday’s song “Strange Fruit,” which was a protest song against racist lynchings.

“We didn’t know because textbooks are designed to continue white supremacy, right? In schools and colleges. I didn’t know about [the women of] Hidden Figures because we weren’t supposed to know,” she said.

Oscars 2021: Regina King Kicks Off Ceremony with Threat to Protest if Derek Chauvin Case ‘Had Gone Differently’

Actress-turned-director Regina King wasted little time Sunday by kicking off the 93rd annual Academy Awards by declaring she would have protested in Minnesota “if things had gone differently this past week,” in an apparent reference to the verdict in the Derek Chauvin case.

Regina King began with a long track through Union Station in downtown Los Angeles before ending up in front of a live audience.

“I have to be honest: if things had gone differently this past week in Minneapolis I might’ve traded in my heels for marching boots,” King said. “I know many of you want to reach for your remote when you feel Hollywood is preaching to you, but as the mother of a black son who fears for his safety, I know the fear that so many live with. And no fame or fortune changes that. OK?”

Watch: 11 Woke Rants at the Oscars

Oscar winners and presenters at the Academy Awards are famous for using the platform to preach politics in grandiose speeches that have pushed left-wing narratives and promoted Democratic Party positions.

The 93rd Academy Awards, slated for Sunday, is likely to be no exception. TV ratings for the telecast have hit history lows. Still, sanctimonious speeches have been commonplace throughout the years — from global warming activist Leonardo DiCaprio launching into a climate-charged rant in 2016 to Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong’o giving a shout out to “Dreamers” in 2018.

Here is a look back at some of the most woke rants at the Oscars in recent years.

Holding the Oscars in a train station makes sense – the show was a ghastly train wreck

As evidenced by this most recent disastrously dull and incoherent ceremony, the annual Academy Awards are on the fast track to irrelevance.

My biggest question regarding 2021’s egregiously bungled and boring Oscar telecast is…if an awards show collapses but no one is watching, does it make a sound?

Interest in the Oscars has been in steep decline for years now, and after suffering through the entire three hour and twenty-minute show last night I can dutifully report that the 93rd Academy Awards came in with a whimper and left with a whimper, too.

New World Mordor: Amazon and New Zealand’s Lord of the Rings deal lays bare the ‘idyllic’ nation's role in global surveillance

Amazon’s forthcoming Tolkien production is anticipated to be the priciest TV show ever made, with the retail and streaming giant spending $250 million on the rights alone, plus hundreds of millions more on filming each season.

But there’s no worry of Amazon Studios going bust fulfilling its Middle Earth fantasies, because the New Zealand government is subsidising the series via a special 25% rebate for production costs. As well as being the most expensive TV show in history, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings project will also enjoy what is likely the biggest government cultural subsidy of all time.

Oscars hits an all-time LOW: Only 9.85million viewers tuned in to Academy Awards - down 58% on last year as three-hour long 'wokefest' gets panned

The number of people who tuned in to watch the three-hour long 'wokefest' that was the Oscars has hit an all time low with just 9.85 million viewers.

The television ratings for the 93rd Academy Awards on Sunday night is a 58 percent drop compared to last year's already record-low 23.64 million viewers, according to early Nielsen numbers.

The huge drop in ratings for Hollywood's biggest night continues an overall multi-year downward trend for the Academy Awards, which were above 43 million as recently as 2014.
