Oscars adopts code of conduct
after Weinstein expulsion
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: mc squared- 12/7/2017 9:09:21 AM     Post Reply
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced Wednesday that it has adopted its first code of conduct for its 8,427 members. Film academy chief executive Dawn Hudson introduced the new rules to members in an email. In October, the academy broke with tradition and made Harvey Weinstein just the second person ever expelled from the Oscars’ governing body. The new code of conduct stipulates that the academy is no place for “people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates standards of decency.” The academy’s board may now suspend or expel those who violate

A Most Remarkable Year

In the last 12 months US backed combat operations drove ISIS from its last bits of territory; America withdrew from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, UNESCO, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The House and Senate have come within sight of overhauling the tax code and dismantling Obamacare. Most recently Donald Trump in a spectacular departure from his predecessor´s Middle Eastern diplomacy has moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. It is as if a hurricane has swept through Washington. Each fallen pillar represents a very deliberate reversal of the status quo ante policies of Barack Obama. The entire edifice the former

The often desperate measures foreigners take to enter our borders—crossing deserts being packed into trucks, and surviving unspeakable brutalities—rightly provoke our anger and evoke our pity. Because of the pathos involved in this kind of illegal entry, we often overlook the fact that there is a far safer and common way for would-be illegals to enter our country. It is a method of entry that should produce even more anger and disgust because of its blatant opportunism; even as it is more likely to result in arrangements that could be mutually profitable. Some enterprising persons (both foreigners and citizens) have

Comey Exemplifies the
Effort to Get Stupid
American Greatness, by Jay Whig    Original Article

Former FBI Director James Comey is tweeting about justice and liberty. He accompanies his tweets with creepy selfies, and the context suggests he is colluding with his conflicted friend, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in spirit if not in practice. Opinion columns heralding the intensification of Mueller’s investigation now flow like mighty rivers carrying with them a new toxic debris: in place of the once vaunted “Russian collusion” is now the paltry charge of obstruction of justice. We all know the Left’s narrative. When President Trump asked Comey if he could go easy on Flynn for lying to the FBI and then subsequently

Trump is bringing Mueller down

Don´t feud with Donald Trump. Too many have and wound up worse for wear. I gave 26 examples. No. 27 may be Robert Mueller, who has wasted the last seven months trying to frame President Trump. Mueller has nothing -- and is losing his reputation. Trump cannot fire Mueller. That would make him a martyr. On July 21, I wrote: President Trump needs to fire Robert Mueller -- but in a manner in which his enemies in Congress do not turn around and hire the Big Leak back. Trump has to make Mueller too toxic to touch. The plan is to investigate the investigator. And that

Groping for a way to move Democrats a seat closer to taking the Senate, Al Franken may be taking one for the team by resigning for being an ass. As I outlined last month, Franken would resign to try to hurt Republican Judge Roy Moore´s chances in next week´s Senate election in Alabama. A Democratic governor will appoint Franken´s successor for a net gain of one seat for Democrats. At 66, Franken has only 8 years seniority and has no prospects to be in Senate leadership. It is either run for president -- ha! -- or play the string out. Trump came

Don’t be so caught up watching the granules moving at your feet that you fail to step back and recognize the entire landscape is shifting. It Has Begun… and there’s so much of it, it’s hard to believe it is just another Wednesday. (Snip)In the past week, President Trump has held three full cabinet meetings. Why? Because common sense would tell us he’s executing an omnidirectional strategic agenda-push, and direct communication is critical. * Tomorrow FBI Director Christopher Wray is going to testify to the House Judiciary Committee.

Movie stars are supposedly nothing like you and me. They´re svelte, glamorous, self-­possessed. They wear dresses we can´t afford and live in houses we can only dream of. Yet it turns out that—in the most painful and personal ways—movie stars are more like you and me than we ever knew. In 1997, just before Ashley Judd´s career took off, she was invited to a meeting with Harvey Weinstein, head of the starmaking studio Miramax, at a Beverly Hills hotel. Astounded and offended by Weinstein´s attempt to coerce her into bed, Judd managed to escape. But instead of keeping quiet about the

LONDON — He is a little-known Saudi prince from a remote branch of the royal family, with no history as a major art collector, and no publicly known source of great wealth. But the prince, Bader bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan al-Saud, is the mystery buyer of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Salvator Mundi,” which fetched a record $450.3 million at auction last month, documents show. The revelation that Prince Bader is the purchaser, according to documents reviewed by The New York Times, links one of the most captivating mysteries of the art world with palace intrigues in Saudi Arabia that

Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday cited attorney-client privilege to avoid telling lawmakers about a conversation he had with his father, President Donald Trump, after news broke this summer that the younger Trump — and top campaign brass — had met with Russia-connected individuals in Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign. Though neither Trump Jr. nor the president is an attorney, Trump Jr. told the House Intelligence Committee that there was a lawyer in the room during the discussion, according to the committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff of California. Schiff said he didn’t think it was a legitimate invocation of attorney-client

Intrigue grows over what

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — Rand Paul was on the verge of becoming a powerful senator and the nation’s leading libertarian. His neighbor was a successful doctor and Kennedy-style Democrat who favored nationalized medicine. They might have sparred over health care or taxes, but an acquaintance of both said they stood in their yards roughly a decade ago shouting at each other over the grass clippings Paul’s mower had shot on Rene Boucher’s property. “?‘I ask him, I tell him and he won’t pay attention,’?” the acquaintance, Bill Goodwin, recalls Boucher saying after the argument. “?‘One of these days.’?” That day may have come

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he was ousted as head of President Donald Trump’s transition due in part to his opposition to the hiring of Michael Flynn as national security adviser. “I thought it was a significant reason,” Christie said at an unrelated press conference at his office in Trenton. The governor, one of the first establishment Republicans to back Trump during the primary and still one of the president´s most loyal supporters, was chairman of the transition until he was unceremoniously fired just days after the election and replaced with Vice President Mike Pence.

Not only is President Trump´s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy there one of the boldest moves of his presidency. It is one of the boldest moves any U.S. president has made since the beginning of the Oslo "peace process" in 1993. That process collapsed at Camp David in 2000 when Yasir Arafat rejected President Clinton´s offer of a Palestinian state. And the process has been moribund ever since, despite multiple attempts to restart it.That is why the warnings from Trump critics that his decision may wreck the

Another Trump Promise Kept:
Recognizing Jerusalem As Israel´s Capital
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article

Mideast: Despite a firestorm of protests, President Trump says he will recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital and eventually move the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv. Consider it another Trump promise kept. Presidents of both parties have promised for years to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital. Yet, somehow complications inevitably arose — "Europe" claimed it would "complicate" peace talks, or the Palestinians said it would make peace impossible, or radical Islamists threatened unrest and terrorism by the "Arab Street" in response to the provocation. So no president, Democrat or Republican, ever truly, officially recognized Israel´s capital for what it plainly was: the

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., hospitalized for an undefined stress-related illness, announced his retirement after serving more than 50 years in the House. Two other Conyers — a son and a great-nephew — immediately announced plans to vie for the elder Conyers´ seat. The great-nephew said, "His doctor advised him that the rigor of another campaign would be too much for him just in terms of his health." Despite his sudden retirement, Conyers "vehemently" denies all accusations that he ever committed sexual harassment. "My legacy can´t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we are going through now," Conyers said

After weeks of biting their tongues about accusations that Sen. Al Franken groped women, Democratic senators are now lining up to call for his resignation. They clearly have the public on their side, according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll. A few days ago, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand told a reporter that "it´s his decision," when asked whether Franken should resign after half a dozen women accused Franken of groping them. Other Senate Democrats also refused to call for his resignation, even as accusations piled up, instead deferring to a pending ethics investigation. The sudden shift came after a seventh

What’s the correct spell to create a buried lead? Aparecium mediatus? The New York Times offers this report on the operation of Consumer Protection Financial Bureau (CFPB) under the command of interim director Mick Mulvaney, with the clear intention to sound the alarm on the bureau’s sharp change in direction. Buried deep in the article, however, is the real news — that a group of bureaucrats have decided to hijack the CFPB as much as possible and operate in secret to defy Mulvaney. Please note the reflection of the maturity of these employees in their choice of self-aggrandizement, too:

How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was

A record 400 arrests were made for terrorism-related offences in Great Britain in the year to the end of September 2017, Home Office figures show. The figures were increased by a series of arrests following terror attacks in Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. Around 60 people were detained in swoops in the wake of four terror attacks in the UK between March and June. Earlier this week, a report revealed that police and MI5 have foiled nine plots since the Westminster attack in March, in addition to the terrorist incidents that have occurred. Counter-terror teams are running about

Jay Kaganoff, writing in the Washington Post says: “Fellow conservatives, it’s time to call on Clarence Thomas to resign.” No it isn’t. The controversy over Anita Hill’s allegations against Justice Thomas has nothing material in common with the cases of Al Franken, John Conyers, or Roy Moore. First, Thomas categorically denied Hill’s allegations. Franken admits to some of the allegations against him. Moore admitted, at least initially, that he dated one or more of the girls in question and doesn’t deny that some of the handwriting in Beverly Nelson’s yearbook is his. Second, Hill’s case was classic “he said, she said.” No

Franklin D. Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.” Today, more than three quarters of a century later, there is another reason for remembering Pearl Harbor: It evoked a response that kept much of the civilized world from falling into a new dark age of totalitarian tyranny. On the bright, clear morning of Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese fighters, bombers, and torpedo planes all but wiped out the U.S. Pacific fleet contingent of eight battleships (sinking four and damaging the four others). Two thousand four hundred and three Americans died in the attack. Unprovoked and unexpected, Japan delivered a

Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” The stock market has gained about 30 percent in value since
