Actor Corey Feldman Stabbed by Unknown Assailant (Is He Getting too Close?)

After the start of the #MeToo movement, former child actor, Corey Feldman made his own waves by turning the spotlight on the ugly hidden secret of pedophilia in Hollywood.

It’s not as if he hasn’t been hinting at these things for years. It’s apparently a very real and very active part of the culture, and it has ruined lives.

Feldman’s best friend and frequent co-star, Corey Haim, is said to be another victim, who carried the emotional scars of his experiences into his adulthood, and eventually, to his grave.

In his quest to expose the Hollywood network of creeps and kiddie touchers, Feldman is said to be working on several projects, including a movie, but it may not be without a price.

Feldman doesn’t enjoy the A-list status of some of the #MeToo figures. That doesn’t lessen the importance – or the implications – of his story, and there may be some who desperately do not want him to talk about what he knows.

In a series of tweets with pictures on Wednesday morning, the actor says he was the victim of an attack, in which a stranger stabbed him while he was in his car.

So is someone trying to stop Feldman’s story from getting any further? After all, these are really desperate days for sexual abusers (and that’s a good thing).

Hopefully, they find his attacker and if this was a coordinated attack, rather than just some random thing, that they get the answers involving who and why.

Trump Is Betting on North Korean Dictator to Suddenly “Do the Right Thing”

This is why you don’t let potentially compromised reality TV goofs run national policy. They can be taken in by anything.

In his desire to be seen as a statesman, President Trump is showing a breathtaking level of naivete.

In several Wednesday morning tweets, Trump discussed his eagerness to meet with North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong Un.

Who really believes Trump has put a lot of thought into this, beyond how it will play out in the press?

For years, U.S. presidents have refused to meet with the leaders of North Korea because none wanted to give the dictatorship the appearance of legitimacy. On this front, Trump has already been out-maneuvered by Kim.

Trump sees himself being hailed as the world’s greatest diplomat – a historical presidency that results in quelling the nuclear ambitions of a rogue regime.

The reality is that it is very unlikely that North Korea will disarm, and Kim gets the PR win by showing that his power has been able to drag a sitting U.S. president to his level, as equals.

Also, Trump puts far too much trust in China’s Xi Jinping.

China has far more at stake in keeping Kim in hand. I don’t believe he has the kind of affection for Trump that Trump seems to think he has.

First of all, why the random capitalization?

Second of all, it’s a good move to continue with the sanctions. At the very least, demand some action on North Korea’s part that shows intent to do what they’ve suggested.

I have no expectations of success or sanity in this upcoming meeting. It won’t be what Trump and his supporters are imagining, where Kim kisses Trump’s ring, gives up his nuclear program, and a new era of peace is heralded in.

The best we can hope for is to avoid any potential international incident.

Howard Stern Urges His Old Friend to Get Out of the White House

Shock jock Howard Stern has a long history of being a pretty vile misogynist.

He’s the guy who got Donald Trump to say his daughter, Ivanka, was a “hot piece of a**.”

Yeah. Nice behavior.

He might be on to something here, however.

In the recent past, Stern has remarked about his old friend, Trump, that he didn’t think he wanted to be president.

“Seventy-year-old guy who has made so much money — he’s made billions of dollars — that he has his own helicopter, he has his own airplane. He has a hot wife. He’s got fame from a No. 1 television show,” Stern said last May. “He can walk around Mar-a-Lago, which is like any palace — better than the f–king White House.”

“And then when he went out on the campaign trail, and he started to win, it was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to be president, and all these crowds love me, and it’s going to be fun,’” Stern told his listeners. “No f–king idea the sh*tty life he was gonna have.”

I agree with him, at least as far as Trump having no idea what he was getting himself in for.

Earlier Tuesday, Stern went a little further.

“I was watching the news. They said that the president calls his friends and asks advice,” Stern said on his eponymous SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday, following a discussion about adult film star Stormy Daniels’s allegations that she had an affair with Trump. “He’s never once called me and asked for advice,” Stern lamented. “Which kind of got me a little upset.”

“Well, maybe he’s just not thinking that you have good advice,” Stern’s co-host, Robin Quivers, said.

There’s a thought, although, Trump has said he listens to himself, so it’s not like he’s getting the best advice, now.

“Yeah, probably not,” Stern replied. “My advice would be, like, get the f— out of there, man.”

“Why do you need that for?” Stern exclaimed. “Go back to Mar-a-Lago and hang.”

“Just give it over to Pence — let him do his thing.”

Stern is speaking the heart of millions.

On a serious note, however, with the trouble that’s mounting, it appears Donald Trump didn’t really think this whole thing through. He was allowed to get away with certain things as a corrupt businessman that he could not do in the most important seat in the land, and it’s catching up to him.

Recent reports are that he can’t even find attorneys willing to work on a team to defend him in the ongoing Russia probe, and the couple he has are in over their heads, never having worked a federal criminal investigation, before.

Worst of all, his inexperience and inability to control his impulses directly affect the rest of the nation.

Listen to your friend, Trump. Call it a day and get out, while you can.

Former SC Justice Wants to Repeal the Second Amendment (and People in Hell Want Ice Water)

It will never happen, and that there are leftists happily assuring “Repeal the Second Amendment” is currently trending on social media is the very reason. They’re just too dumb to realize it.

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote a ridiculous, addle-brained op-ed for the New York Times calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

It ain’t happening, Johnny.

The retired Republican, apparently spurred on by this past weekend’s March for Our Lives nonsense, urged activists to give up the charade of simply seeking new restrictions and more stringent background checks, and to lean on lawmakers to gun grab.

“That support is a clear sign to lawmakers to enact legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons, increasing the minimum age to buy a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establishing more comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms,” Stevens wrote.

“But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform,” he continued. “They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.”

Indeed, some of the signs spotted at Saturday’s rally were as blatant as Stevens, saying openly that the goal was to take guns.

It’s a dark road Stevens and his ilk are attempting to drag this nation along. Not just dark, but littered with the corpses of history, all those who allowed the government to regulate their access to self-defense.

From Nazi Germany to Vietnam’s Khmer Rouge, tyranny is often preceded by efforts to end private gun ownership.

With the ever increasing push from the left to indoctrinate our youth into the ways of Communism, under some misguided notion that we, as a people, can actually make it work, when nowhere else in the world’s history has it been a successful form of government, is reason enough to keep a “well-regulated militia.”

In fact, as it is written, the important part of the amendment states:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

I’m thinking Stevens and the dullards that took to the streets on Saturday are confused about what the word “infringed” means. Is there a dictionary app?

“Infringe” means to encroach upon in a way that violates the law or the rights of someone else.

The Second Amendment is necessary to help the people stand, should an oppressive government rise up and threaten the populace, and I’m more convinced now than ever that it is desperately needed today.

Stevens went on with his insanity.

Stevens wrote that the Second Amendment has been misinterpreted in recent decades to extend beyond its original intent to allow citizens to form militias in the face of potential government tyranny.

Repealing it would lift legal protections for firearm sellers and manufacturers, and would ultimately reduce gun violence in the U.S., he wrote.

“That simple but dramatic action would move Saturday’s marchers closer to their objective than any other possible reform,” Stevens wrote.

I agree it has been misinterpreted, but not by those who know bearing arms is a right of the people.

It has been misinterpreted by those who think it only applies to hunters, or that it limits the type of arms owned to muskets.

And yes, that “simple but dramatic action” would move those marchers closer to their objective, and that’s the very reason we must fight against them and against people who believe as Stevens does.

This is a constitutional crisis and a nation in peril. The filth and rot of Communism has infected us. It must be recognized and excised as the tumor it is.

Stevens, along with each and every anti-2nd Amendment protester is wrong.

Avengers Assemble! Actors Join in to Play Real Life Superheroes to a Dying Kid

Given that Marvel’s past 10 years of methodically and successfully bringing the superheroes from the comic book page to the big screen is about to reach its collective glory in “Avengers: Infinity War” next month, this could almost seem like a promotional gimmick.

But it isn’t.

On Sunday, Fox News host Shannon Bream tweeted out an appeal for a young boy named Emilio, stricken with cancer.

Bream had apparently met a man on a flight recently who told her about young Emilio, his nephew, and said the boy had little time left.

Later, the man reached out to Bream and told her that Emilio’s dying wish was to receive a video greeting from an Avenger, and asked if she could help.

Bream took it to Twitter.

Social media has a way of making things happen.

Within a few hours, Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, and Paul Bettany, who takes on the role of Vision, offered to help.

“Happy to! DM me,” Evans tweeted Bream.

Ryan Reynolds, who perfectly and hilariously plays Marvel’s “Deadpool” also offered to help.

To be clear, “Deadpool” is closer to being one of the “X-Men” than an Avenger, but still, that was cool.

The second “Deadpool” is due out soon, as a matter of fact.

“Avengers” actors Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) will also be sending videos to the boy. Bream thanked CNN host Jake Tapper for helping to connect with Rudd on the video.

“Thank you, EVERYONE! Major progress has been made because of you. A special assist coming in from @jaketapper I guess Twitter can be full of love when someone really needs it,” she tweeted.

As of Monday afternoon, Evans and Bettany sent their videos to the boy, Fox News can report.

I saw that Twitter thread. Along with Reynolds, Evans, Bettany, and Rudd, actor Don Cheadle, who plays Iron Man sidekick, War Machine/Iron Patriot offered his help, as well.

Kudos to all of the celebs who were willing to reach out and offer their time and efforts to brighten a sick kid’s last hours.

No Thanks: Two More Attorneys Decline to Join President Trump’s Legal Team

Ok, serious question.

Who thinks President Trump’s strategy when facing off against special counsel Robert Mueller is to interrupt him with shouts of, “Fake news!” every time he tries to ask a question?

Let’s face it. Trump isn’t awfully bright. He has few options. His lead attorney, John Dowd, bailed last week.

The word is that Dowd was against the idea of Trump being interviewed by Mueller and was attempting to work through that situation, but that Trump was ignoring his advice and opting for a more aggressive approach.

When Trump called in Fox News conspiracy theorist, Joe diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, the MAGAsphere rejoiced, seeing this as a sign that Trump was going to fight.

DiGenova and Toensing reportedly backed out almost as soon as it was reported they were joining the team. Initial reports are that there were conflicts of interest, with Toensing representing several former members of Trump’s circle.

Trump boasted in tweets over the weekend about all the top-notch, high powered law firms clamoring to work with him, yet, he can’t seem to keep any.

Much of it is because Trump has a history of stiffing people he owes money to, and these attorneys want to get paid.

However, most of it could be because Trump is a client who won’t listen, and this could put their reputation on the line.

For now, Trump only has Ty Cobb, who is apparently on the outs with the president, and Jay Sekulow is handling the bulk of the Russia probe.

But don’t worry. High-powered help is on the way.

Isn’t it?

Ok. Maybe not.

The Daily Beast is reporting that Trump reached out to two more attorneys and both turned him down.

“President Trump reached out to Dan Webb and Tom Buchanan to provide legal representation,” they said in a statement. “They were unable to take on the representation due to business conflicts. However they consider the opportunity to represent the President to be the highest honor and they sincerely regret that they cannot do so. They wish the president the best and believe he has excellent representation in Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.”

Buchanan is a partner at the firm Winston & Strawn, in its Washington office. Webb is the firm’s co-executive chairman, based in Chicago, according to the firm’s website.

Gee… We’d love to, but we’ve got a thing…

So if we ignore Dowd’s leaving, that’s strike two for Trump, just since the weekend.

Meanwhile, Mueller is inching ever closer, and Trump has nobody on his team with any real experience dealing with a federal criminal probe.

Expect his Twitter time to get more desperate.

Trump Ascending: New Poll Holds Some Positives for President Trump

Despite the Stormy Daniels controversy, the revolving door administration, and his recent cave on a massive budget-busting omnibus bill, things are coming up [sort of] roses for President Trump.

According to a new CNN poll, Trump’s approval ratings took a bump upwards.

The CNN poll,  conducted from March 22-25, showed Trump with a 42 percent approval rating, up 7 points from the network’s same poll last month. Meanwhile, 54 percent of voters disapprove of Trump’s job performance.

Trump got positive marks on his handling of the economy, where 48 percent of people approve of his performance, compared to 45 percent who disapprove.

A whopping 42 percent…

I mean, he’ll likely never hit 50 percent, which makes him the most unpopular first year president in modern history, but, going up is going up.

That 42 percent is the best he’s done since April 2017, when he reached 44 percent approval.

In other areas, a bit over 50 percent disapprove of the way Trump has handled gun policies and foreign affairs.

Speaking of affairs, you’d think the news of Trump’s cheating with a porn star and a Playboy model would have some kind of effect.

It didn’t, but are Trump’s denials going over well?

Monday’s CNN poll found 63 percent of Americans said they believe the women, while 21 percent said they believe Trump’s denials of those affairs.

Oh.

This particular poll had a sampling size of 1,014 and the margin of error was 3.7 percent.

The Shuffling Isn’t Over: Here’s This Week’s Likely Trump Cabinet Ouster

Let’s give that revolving door another spin!

Reports coming out on Sunday are that Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin will be the next Trump Cabinet member bounced out the door.

Two officials said an announcement on Shulkin could happen this week, subject to Trump’s final decision as the White House hones in on possible replacements to head the Department of Veterans Affairs. One of the officials rated Shulkin’s chances of being pushed out in the next day or two at “50-50.” The three officials demanded anonymity to discuss a sensitive personnel matter.

Trump, who spent the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate, told associates that he would keep two other administration officials who had been under fire: White House chief of staff John F. Kelly and Housing Secretary Ben Carson.

“He did say that he’s expecting to make one or two major changes,” said Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, a Trump confidant who spoke with the president over the weekend, on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Now, other White House sources, not the president, tell me that Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is likely to depart the Cabinet very soon,” Ruddy said.

So, let’s just be clear, when somebody says, “50-50 chance,” they can’t really be proven wrong, can they?

So let’s just take this one with a small grain of salt.

I mean, it’s not like there aren’t reasons to get rid of Shulkin. The guy is apparently confused about his role as a public servant. With the VA in shambles and in need of somebody to actually care about tightening up that ship and seeing that our veterans are taken care of, Shulkin was enjoying the “perks.”

In February, an internal watchdog group found that Shulkin had taken some Wimbledon tickets, improperly. There were doctored emails from his staff to allow his wife to travel with him to Europe on our dime – and then it turned into a sight-seeing trip, rather than the diplomatic mission it was intended to be.

A separate VA watchdog investigation, due out in the coming weeks, is also looking into a complaint that Shulkin asked his security detail to accompany him to a Home Depot store and cart furniture items, according to two people familiar with the allegation who requested anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

President Trump made repeated claims to fix the VA while on the campaign trail, but in the mega-spending bill he just signed, there was no provision to expand the Veteran’s Choice program, that would have allowed vets access to private doctors.

The vets get snookered, again.

Shulkin has made a point of answering charges against him by going to the press and claiming there were political appointees within the unit working against him. He denies wrongdoing and hangs his failures on the internal drama.

Speaking of drama, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is reportedly getting tired of Shulkin’s nonsense, and wants him to stop claiming a White House mandate that he doesn’t have.

With that in mind, Shulkin’s departure may be imminent.

When the notion of a Shulkin ouster was first raised, the rumor was that former Texas governor and current Energy Secretary Rick Perry was being considered to take over for Shulkin (where he should have been from the beginning, actually), but Perry has said that he wasn’t interested.

So who could be in line to fill that spot?

A recent rumor has Trump fishing from the Fox News pool and possibly putting Pete Hegseth in the role, but that’s not a certainty, either.

Among the candidates being vetted include Hegseth, a former military officer and former CEO of the conservative Concerned Veterans for America; former Rep. Jeff Miller, who had been chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee; retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg; Michael Kussman, a former VA undersecretary of health; Toby Cosgrove, a former president and CEO of the Cleveland Clinic; and Leo Mackay Jr., a former VA deputy secretary who is now senior vice president at Lockheed Martin Corp.

Should Shulkin find himself unemployed this week, deputy VA secretary Tom Bowman would step in as acting VA secretary.

Coulter Versus Pirro: Two Trump Loyalists Battle Over Trump’s Omnibus Betrayal

It was a hilarious battle of two mindless, nattering Trump harridans.

Both Ann Coulter and Jeanine Pirro have obliterated any dignity or credibility that may have had, at one point, by lowering themselves to something beneath sewer-level, in order to defend and support Donald Trump.

Ann Coulter lost me when she said Trump could perform abortions in the White House, as long as he built a border wall.

Pirro is so over-the-top sycophantic and groveling, it’s hard to remember a time where she could have been considered reasonable.

Trump’s signing of the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill did little to nothing for conservatives, or the right. Liberals made out like gangbusters, with a fully funded Planned Parenthood, a long list of foreign aid, nothing to fix immigration, and only a token amount for Trump’s mystery wall.

Coulter came into her interview with Pirro loaded for bear and ready to rip her former idol to shreds.

Pirro attempted to defend by building up a wall of utter stupid, like saying Trump was the hardest working president to ever hold office.

She went as far as to say he never slept, but just worked and worked.

First of all, he’s spent more time golfing in his first year than Obama did in nearly his entire presence. He carves out the first few hours of the day, just to play on social media, and calls it “Executive time.”

But I digress.

Ripping him for his campaign trail rhetoric, Coulter let go:

“We thought that perhaps he was not the world’s greatest negotiator but a negotiator and we got nothing,” Coulter told Fox News’s Jeanine Pirro, who defended Trump.

Coulter said the president is betraying the promise he made during his presidential campaign to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump has attempted to puff up the token amount for the wall – $1.6 billion – as a win. It has been dedicated to shoring up fencing that is already present on the border.

While giving credit the Republican lawmakers who voted against the bill, saying maybe we could vote for one of them as president, Coulter pointed out that the buck stops with Trump.

“There was only one guy who said at every speech, at every rally, for two years that he would build the wall,” Coulter said. “He has now signed a bill to prohibit building the wall.”

Pirro pointed out that it was the Republicans who didn’t fight hard enough for Lord Trump.

“But we knew that. We knew that from Trump’s campaign. We knew they were swine,” Coulter responded. Coulter, a supporter of Trump during the campaign, has since become an outspoken critic.

I would suggest that if you see Trump pulled a fast one on us all, you stop giving him more credit than anyone else, so maybe it’s not the others who are “swine.”

Pirro attempted to frame North Korea as a bigger threat than our southern border, but was quickly shut down.

“There is no more crucial attack on our national defense than the fact that we don’t have a wall,” Coulter argued.

She pointed out that North Korea is China’s problem, while Mexico is ours.

“He has money to spend on national defense and this is a much bigger problem of national defense,” Coulter added.

Coulter wasn’t wrong. She pointed out that Trump, as president, has the power to secure the border, but his signing this bill that hobbles attempts to pay for a border wall proves he never intended to secure the border.

She’s coming around slow, but she’s coming around.
