People wear black when in mourning. Maybe they are mourning the death of Hollywood as they know it. Maybe they think we are going to watch another awards show. NOT! Their movies are stupid remakes or movies made for special effects. They have no plot, character, or real romance. It is all violent sex and mayhem. I am giving up movies this year. They are not worth my hard earned dollars or time.

This crowd isn’t about to forego their red carpet posing, free or discounted designer gowns in exchange for advertising, exclusive goody bags, etc. “Stars?” Hardly.

Men should not be allowed inside the auditorium on Oscar night; the ceremony should be 100% female. We all know what men think--every one of them (except Corey Feldman´s fidgety list)--and they should be ashamed of themselves. Should men be admitted to the awards, they should be made to wear formless gray sackcloth and have their heads and downcast faces anointed with ashes. This penguin stuff with ruffled shirt, white tie, cummerbund, and patent leather shoes is laughable. The women are on to them. Their cover is blown. They? Oh me oh my.

President Trump needled the Democratic Party Saturday over its multimillion-dollar lawsuit claiming damages for an alleged conspiracy between Wikileaks, the Russian government, and the Trump campaign to swing the 2016 presidential election. “So funny, the Democrats have sued the Republicans for Winning,” Trump goaded in a 2:52 pm tweet. “Now [the] R’s counter and force them to turn over a treasure trove of material, including Servers and Emails!” The threat of a Republican counter-suit followed Trump’s initial tweet on the topic, which hailed the DNC lawsuit as “good news.” “We will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to

Facebook spent $7.3 million on private security and $1.5 million in 2017 on Zuckerberg’s use of private aircraft; the company spent $5.8 million on security for Zuckerberg in the year-earlier period.

With air strikes on Syria´s chemical weapons facilities, carried out jointly with Britain and France, America has done the right thing. Leading from in front, President Trump is finally redrawing the red line that President Obama erased in 2013. Whatever the threats and criticisms that will surely follow, the world will be safer for it. The vital message is that America is no longer the hamstrung giant of the Obama era. Tyrants such as Syria´s Bashar al-Assad, and his patrons in Moscow and Tehran, have been served notice that it would be unwise to continue to assume that America will waffle,

At least 70 people have died in a suspected chemical attack in Douma, the last rebel-held town in Syria´s Eastern Ghouta, rescuers and medics say. Volunteer rescue force the White Helmets tweeted graphic images showing several bodies in basements. It said the deaths were likely to rise. There has been no independent verification of the reports. Syria has called the allegations of a chemical attack a "fabrication" - as has its main ally, Russia. The US state department said Russia - with its "unwavering support" for Syria´s government - "ultimately bears responsibility" for the alleged attacks.

In less than two weeks, James Comey is poised to begin a book tour and break his silence about his experience serving as FBI director before he was fired last summer by President Trump. Beyond the occasional tweet in which he has defended an embattled FBI from Trump´s criticisms, Comey has largely kept out of the public eye while wrapping up his book, titled “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership." But with April 17, the day his memoir hits bookshelves, fast approaching, a number of potential complications have arisen. An ex-FBI supervisory special agent put it bluntly on Saturday when he

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, warned President Trump firing special counsel Robert Mueller could lead to impeachment, becoming one of the first congressional Republicans to mention impeachment directly. “Firing Mr. Mueller would be a grave error. It would trigger a crisis, possibly even impeachment,” Hatch said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday night. “It would threaten many of the administration’s accomplishments and make continued progress virtually impossible.” In his op-ed, Hatch endorsed the proposed legislation aimed at protect Mueller from being fired by Trump, or, for that matter, any president from firing a counsel appointed to investigating potential presidential misconduct.

NBC poured millions of dollars into “Megyn Kelly Today” and, in return, they’ve been rewarded with a massive drop in viewership. The Peacock network poached Kelly from Fox last year, enticing her from the conservative flagship network with a three-year, $69 million contract, according to the Wall Street Journal. But Kelly’s introduction to NBC, premiering at the 9 a.m. hour in September, was met with almost immediate controversy — a feud with Jane Fonda that the morning show host dragged out for months — and she never drew the viewership that the network was looking for. Her Sunday night newsmagazine show was

The election is over and Republican Debbie Lesko has won a West Valley congressional special election in a district that has leaned right for decades. Here’s what else we learned from the unexpectedly competitive race to replace Trent Franks, the veteran Republican who resigned in December amid a sexual-misconduct scandal.The unofficial results show a dramatic underperformance by a Republican in the solidly GOP district. That’s a problem for Republicans, who now need to sort through the results to determine how problematic the landscape will be for them in November. Republicans have a 17 percentage point registration advantage in the district. President Donald Trump

Schools are removing analogue clocks from examination halls because teenagers are unable to tell the time, a head teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital devices after pupils sitting their GCSE and A-level exams complained that they were struggling to read the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), said youngsters have become accustomed to using digital devices. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” he told The Telegraph.
