A video of Courtney Love warning young actresses about Harvey Weinstein has been burning up the internet.
The video, which was first surfaced by TMZ, was shot in 2005 on the red carpet for the Pamela Anderson Comedy Central Roast.
Love is asked if she has any advice for "a young girl moving to Hollywood."
Love first hesitates and says, "I'll get libeled if I say it."
"If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in the Four Seasons [hotel] don't go," Love says.
Migrant attacks against ethnic Hungarians in Germany are increasing. The recent victim posted his story on social media where he also condemned German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
A 36-year-old man was shot and killed early Sunday in a shooting on Milwaukee's west side that was recorded by at least two surveillance cameras.
The victim in the 12:40 a.m. shooting on the 2300 block of W. State Street was identified Monday as Lanell B. Taylor.
A pair of surveillance videos obtained by WISN 12 NEWS shows one man removing a long, semi-automatic gun from the trunk of a parked car. Another angle shows a man firing more than 20 shots from the weapon within a span of about six seconds.
A Milwaukee police spokesperson said detectives are looking for a known suspect in the shooting, which stemmed from an argument at a nearby bar.
A group of off-duty policemen came to the dramatic rescue of a woman trapped in her car as it was overwhelmed by flood water. The men waded into waist-deep water towards the car which was sinking bonnet first. They formed a human chain to get the stranded woman back to dry land, with two men propping her up. Eyewitnesses filmed the dramatic rescue in the Nayandahalli area in the city of Bengaluru, in southern India.
More than 300 people were killed in the weekend truck bombing in Somalia’s capital and scores remained missing. As funerals continued, the government said the death toll was expected to rise. Nearly 400 people were injured after Saturday’s bombing targeted a crowded street in Mogadishu. Somalia’s government blamed the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab, though the Islamic extremist group has not claimed responsibility for the attack.
A senior North Korean official has accused the US of turning the Korean peninsula into “the world’s biggest hotspot” and creating “a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment”. North Korea’s deputy UN ambassador, Kim In-ryong, described US-South Korean military exercises as the largest ever “aggressive war drill” and said his country was “ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US”. US military considers shooting down North Korea missile tests, sources say Read more Kim’s warning came as the US vice-president, Mike Pence, assured Japan that Washington would work closely with its allies in the region to bring about a peaceful resolution to the crisis and denuclearise the Korean peninsula.
The body of a toddler killed by her mother who was obsessed with a motorcycle-riding 'wolfman' and aliens could be buried in bushland on the NSW Central Coast. NSW Police considered searching the area after the woman's notebooks were seized by detectives and an entry dated 2001 was found which read 'Killed Snapper Point'. Snapper Point is part of the Lake Munmorah State Conservation Area south of Newcastle. Supreme Court Justice Robert Allan Hulme in Newcastle on Tuesday formally ordered the woman, 45, be released because she was not a danger to the community.
Some House Democrats are raising the specter of withholding support for must-pass spending legislation later this year in response to President Trump’s hard-line immigration proposals — meaning the fate of roughly 690,000 younger undocumented immigrants could become a major factor in negotiations to keep the government open after December.
“What the White House put forward is a complete non-starter,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in an interview, blaming Trump’s senior policy aides for advancing “un-American” ideas on how to deal with immigration.
Lithonia, Georgia mom Octavia Parks was left dumbfounded after discovering her 12 year old daughter’s health class homework.
The sixth grade student from Lithonia Middle School in Lithonia, Georgia was given an assignment last week asking students to name sexual identity terms — such as gay, lesbian and transgender — based on their definitions.
The “Identity Definitions” assignment defined the terms as follows:
A woman who is attracted to women [answer: lesbian]
A man who is attracted to men [answer: gay]
A person who is attracted to men and women [answer: bisexual]
When the person’s gender identity doesn’t match the sex (male or female) the doctor said they were when they were born [answer: transgender]
“We’re talking about a sixth-grader who still watches Nickelodeon,” Parks told FOX 5 Atlanta WAGA-TV. “Why are they teaching that in school? What does that have to do with life?”
Parks told WAGA she opted her daughter out of the health class.
“I’m not ready to explain what these words are nor what they mean,” continued Ms. Parks.
Jane Fonda, actress, activist, friend of the Viet Cong and leotard-clad purveyor of countless fitness tapes, actually blamed “male entitlement” for the disgusting behavior of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Fonda was talking about what people have to do to curtail the kind of behavior Weinstein is accused of when she revealed that she knew about it for a year beforehand. She made the comments during a CNN interview on Thursday with Christiane Amanpour.
Allen West: “Obama has once again demonstrated his disdain for America, Americans, and our Constitution. I say now is the time for good ol’ fashioned American civil disobedience. From today, let no one sign up for Obamacare. It’s not a law, just the bidding of a narcissistic megalomaniac.
If Americans do not finally see the arrogant lawlessness of this person who no longer holds regard for the Office of the Presidency, then God help us, for He shall certainly not bless us. What more do people need to see and endure? This disgraceful era must now end.
The president is in violation of his oath and yes, he should be removed from office by impeachment. Let the call ring across the land from sea to shining sea.”
At least 27 people died, and 51 left injured in devastating wildfires that have ravaged forests in Portugal since Sunday, reported the country’s civil protection agency on Monday. Portugal’s government has declared a state of public emergency in all regions north of the Tagus River, a territory about half the size of continental Portugal.
Hillary Clinton: You have to resist the very clear dog whistles to that base. That’s what the black athletes kneeling was about. That was not against our anthem or our flag. That was actually kneeling was a reverent position. It was to demonstrate in a peaceful way against racism and injustice in our criminal system… I think it would be a grave error for Democrats to recede from those fights and so therefore we have to stand up, fight back, resist!
Lawmakers of the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian Parliament, initiated debates, which turned into a scuffle in the session hall. It started on Thursday afternoon, as the MPs considered the draft law on re-integration of Donbas.
The reason for the scuffle was that the document – specifically, Article 7, – contained mentions about Minsk agreement, which is supposed to solve Donbas conflict; certain political forces, such as Svoboda party and Radical party, protest against including this mechanism in the document.
Meanwhile, law enforcers boosted security measures and reinforced the guard in the governmental quarter, including the building of the Parliament.
If you are curious just how Muslims reacted when they see a Christian church in a predominantly Muslim areas of Pakistan on fire, here is your example that proves just how heartless these devout Muslim followers truly are.
Here's a compilation showing them not just blocking fire trucks from entering the roadways in order to put out the flames, but they actually throw things on the fire to ensure the church is completely destroyed.
Islam, the so-called religion of peace is the exact opposite!
A platform exploded in Lake Pontchartrain on Sunday evening (Oct. 15) near St. Charles Parish and north Kenner, according to Kenner Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brian McGregor. Seven people were injured in the explosion, according to Kenner Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Kriss Fortunato, and authorities believe an eighth person is still missing.
Search and rescue operations were ongoing Sunday at about 10:15 p.m. Rescue boats are being sent from the Kenner Boat Launch at the end of Williams Boulevard, McGregor said, and authorities asked that residents avoid the area as much as possible.
Five of those injured were taken to the University Medical Center and two to East Jefferson General Hospital, according to Mike Guillot, director of East Jefferson Emergency Medical Services. The five who were brought to UMC "have blast type injuries and burns" and are in critical condition, he said, and the two at East Jefferson are stable.
The platform, which is located in unincorporated Jefferson Parish, is in production and owned by Clovelly Oil Co., according to Taylor Darden, who is a lawyer for the company and listed with the Louisiana Secretary of State as its registered agent. East Bank Consolidated Fire Department Chief David Tibbets said Sunday that the platform is used for the transfer of oil, and the department's goal currently is to stop the oil flow and, if needed, let it burn off safely.
A jetliner rapidly descended by 24,000 feet after the aircraft lost cabin air pressure while traveling from Australia to the holiday island of Bali on Sunday.
People aboard Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ535 described a panicked flight crew announcing an emergency and oxygen masks dropping from the ceiling.
Passenger Clare Askew told reporters that airline staff "were screaming, looked tearful and shocked."
She added: “Now, I get it, but we looked to them for reassurance and we didn’t get any, we were more worried because of how panicked they were."
Chris Jeanes told NBC News that AirAsia workers sprinted down aisle shouting "emergency, brace, crash positions" about 25 minutes after the plane took off from Perth, Australia.
Jeanes, the passenger, had planned to propose to his girlfriend Casey Kinchella in Bali, but pulled down his oxygen mask and did it on the plane.
The death toll from Saturday's truck bombing in Somalia's capital is now over 300, the director of an ambulance service said Monday, as the country reeled from the deadliest single attack it's ever experienced.
Dr. Abdulkadir Adam of Aamin Ambulance service said more people had died of their wounds in the past few hours.
Funerals began, and the death toll was expected to rise again.
Saturday's truck bombing targeted a crowded street in Mogadishu, and about 300 others were injured. Somalia's government is blaming the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group, which has not commented.
Officials said more than 70 critically injured people were being airlifted to Turkey for treatment on Monday as international aid began to arrive.
Nervous relatives stood on the tarmac at the airport, praying for the recovery of their loved ones.
Overwhelmed hospitals in Mogadishu were struggling to assist other badly wounded victims, many burned beyond recognition.
There's been something of a media lockdown over the story of how a 43-year-old man armed with a knife was arrested outside the King’s Leadership Academy, Dingle, at about 2.50pm on Wednesday after he threatened to kill white people outside the school gates.
Afterwards the Police released this statement:
"Officers attended and a 43-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offence and racially aggravated threats to kill. He has been taken to a police station in Merseyside to be interviewed."
The thing about that 'racially aggravated threats to kill.' statement is it doesn't say in which direction the threat was made and as this is the UK we automatically presume the knifeman was white.
Hillary Clinton has received an honorary doctorate from Swansea University during a visit to the city.
The former US secretary of state and 2016 American presidential candidate was presented with the award during a ceremony at Swansea University’s Bay Campus.
She said the honour “meant the world to her”.
The university’s College of Law was also renamed the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law.
In her speech, Mrs Clinton praised the leadership at Swansea University and the support of the community which she said “has been transforming the university into a world class hub for academic pursuit, as well as the pursuit of truth, reason and innovation”.
In a laboratory somewhere in China, a chemist is producing the fentanyl that will kill an opioid user in Maryland.
Within China’s vast drug industry, which produces much of the global supply of pharmaceutical ingredients, laboratories are taking advantage of cheap labor and lax oversight from Beijing to churn out new versions of the cheap, powerful and often deadly synthetic opioid faster than U.S. authorities can identify, classify and ban them.
From China — the largest producer of fentanyl worldwide — the drug is sent daily by plane or ship to Mexico, where traffickers and truckers push it along well-worn paths of illicit narcotics north to the United States. In Baltimore and other cities, well-established gangs push the powder and pills to consumers.
This much is known by U.S. authorities. They’re intercepting increasing amounts of fentanyl. But they’ve been unable to make much of a dent in the trade.
“It’s kind of the new Wild West,” said Katherine Tobin, a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. The government panel helped outline the route for Congress earlier this year.
Deployed to stop the supply are more U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspectors, better customs technology and undercover Drug Enforcement Administration interference. There’s also been some recent cooperation from Chinese authorities.
Still, no one knows how much gets by — until it lands in cities such as Baltimore, where record numbers of people are overdosing and dying. Fentanyl, often mixed with or mistaken for heroin, but 50 times more powerful, is now Baltimore’s deadliest killer.
[Warning Repeated Use of the N-word] Listen to this old lady go completely savage on this black Professor, Jason Nichols, after appearing on Fox News with Tucker Carlson. Sadly, she destroys her own argument by repeatedly calling black people n*ggers. So, despite her facts being pretty on point, this professor wins the argument by proving racist people are still doing exactly what he complained about on the Fox News show.
ISIS Terrorists have apparently brainwashed an entirely new species into fighting their wars for them, Bears!
Watch as 2 peshmerga soldiers are killed by a wild grizzly bear that appeared out of nowhere and begin attacking them.
Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.
We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.
An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.”
We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.”
Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”
Amid the anger and confusion brought upon by an ever-changing timeline by the Las Vegas Police Department and FBI, MGM Resorts International has hired an elite crisis management firm. The move comes on the same day Sheriff Joe Lombardo claims there is little difference between police and Casino timelines. MGM Resorts International has said otherwise — twice.
Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:
News - Conference - Times - Clark - County
At a news conference, a sometimes combative and at times emotional Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said MGM Resorts International had the correct timeline of events surrounding the Oct. 1 Strip attack.
“I’m not in conflict with their statement,” Lombardo confirmed, following a weeklong dispute over the timeline of events that occurred the night of the shooting.
Sheriff - Monday - Stephen - Paddock - Shot
The sheriff said Monday that Stephen Paddock shot Mandalay Baysecurity guard Jesus Campos at 9:59 p.m., about six minutes before the gunman turned his weapons on the Route 91 Harvest festival crowd below his hotel suite. He previously reported Campos was shot after the attack on the concert crowd.
Twice this week, MGM Resorts disputed Lombardo’s revised timeline. The company, which owns Mandalay Bay, released the following details Thursday:
Friday - Press - Conference - Sheriff - Joe
In a Friday press conference, Sheriff Joe Lombardo fought back against claims that there is a conspiracy between the FBI, between LVMPD and the MGM,” to withhold information. Lombardo blasted reports that the Las Vegas police department and the FBI were operating in an incompetent manner.
“”There is no conspiracy between the FBI, between LVMPD & MGM — & nobody is attempting to hide anything referenced [in] this investigation,” reports ABC News.
Press - Conference - FBI - Press - Amounts
Later in the press conference, the FBI told the press that massive amounts of evidence have been collected in the shooting probe.
Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon declared a “season of war” against the GOP establishment in an electrifying speech at the Values Voter Summit Saturday, warning Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: “these folks are coming for you.”
“There’s a time and season for everything, and now it’s a season of war against the GOP establishment,” Bannon told the gathering in Washington, DC. “It’s no longer acceptable to come and pat you on the head and tell you everything’s going to be fine [if you] just get these guys an office.”
Bannon is planning a full-scale assault in the 2018 midterms, reportedly planning challenges on every GOP senator up for re-election (except for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz) and is believed to be eyeing a number of House and gubernatorial races as well.
“This is not my war. This is our war. And y’all didn’t start it. The establishment started it,” he said. Some
of the potential challenges are likely to be seen as long shots, but Bannon has the wind in his sails after Judge Roy Moore beat establishment-backed Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) in last month’s Alabama Senate primary runoff, despite being outspent 10-1 by forces allied to McConnell.
In his speech Saturday, Bannon basked in that victory and warned McConnell that his position was more precarious than ever.
“Up on Capitol Hill, because I’ve been getting calls, it’s like before the Ides of March. They’re just finding out who’s going to be Brutus to your Julius Caesar,” Bannon said. “Yeah, Mitch, the donors aren’t happy, they’ve all left you.”
He told the crowd that Moore’s victory has spooked the establishment elites as it shows that money doesn’t matter, even going so far as to say that the more money they spend, “the fewer votes they get.”
Bannon warned Republicans who think they can hide from backing President Trump that their failure to support him will haunt them in the midterm primary seasons.
“No one can run and hide on this one, these folks are coming for you,” he warned. “The day of taking a few conservatives votes and hiding is over. These folks aren’t rubes, these folks aren’t idiots.”
Bannon also argued that the power of the Alabama vote can be shown in recent developments from the White House. He noted that since Moore’s Alabama victory, the Trump administration has issued an executive order on religious freedom, stopped the Obamacare insurance bailouts, pulled the U.S. out of UNESCO, decertified Iran’s compliance with the Iran nuclear deal, and pushed for a middle-class tax cut.
“Those are not random events folks, that is victory begets victory,” he said. “We owe that to Judge Roy Moore and the good men and women in Alabama because that all came from them.”
Former child actor Corey Feldman has spent years calling out the practice of Hollywood A-listers sexually exploiting young actors who try to make their mark in show business.
A video clip from a 2013 episode of The View where he shares these revelations about the abuse in the industry has resurfaced after allegations came to light that disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and abused those working in the industry:
A day after she voiced her “shock” at sexual assault allegations against Hollywood producer and Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein, Hillary Clinton said she would donate Weinstein’s political contributions to charity.
In an interview with CNN Wednesday, Clinton said it wasn’t possible to donate her contributions from Weinstein back, but she would donate it to charity.
"What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is they're going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that," she said. "I give 10% of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that. There's no -- there's no doubt about it."
On Tuesday, Clinton said she was “shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein” in a statement released on Twitter. “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”
SHAMED movie mogul Harvey Weinstein propositioned Myleene Klass with a sex contract, The Sun can reveal.
The disgusted TV presenter, then 32, immediately declined the offer, telling Weinstein to "f*** off" during a film festival lunch at Cannes in 2010.
The married movie mogul assumed the TV presenter would sleep with him — and wanted to silence her with a “confidentiality agreement”.
Instead Myleene fled their lunch meeting at a restaurant in Cannes feeling “disgusted and angry”.
Last night a friend of the former Hear’Say singer, now 39, said she believed she had been there to discuss work.
They went on: “She thought his intentions were genuine. But as soon as she found out what he really wanted, she told him to f*** off.”
The sleazy Hollywood mogul, 65, has been hit by a wave of sex allegations, which he denies.
Kate Beckinsale also revealed yesterday how Weinstein targeted her in London when she was just 17.
Fellow Brit Myleene has previously talked about her Weinstein encounter but said it would “bring Hollywood down” if she named him.
She had interviewed him at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010 while working for news channel CNN and was invited out to lunch the next day.
British TV journalist Matt Frei asked Hillary Clinton if she’s still blaming others more than herself for her election loss in an interview Friday.
Frei asked about her appeal to the voter during the 2016 presidential election, saying that her status as a Clinton prevented her gender from helping her.
"Your dynastic appeal or perhaps it was the opposite: The fact that you were called Clinton the fact that you were first lady basically trumped any novelty—if you forgive the term—of being the first female president of the United States," he said. "People looked at your name and your legacy more than they looked at your gender."
Clinton answered by laying out the amount of support she received and then blaming former FBI director James Comey and the Russians for her defeat.
"That doesn’t explain why I led all the way through, why I won the primary by 4 million votes, why I was winning, we had a great convention," she said. "I was thought to have won all three debates. That doesn't explain it, Matt, so that's why I had to really dig deep."
"And, yes, I take responsibility. Obviously, there were things I must have been able to do differently in order to have won," Clinton continued. "But at the end, there was this really perfect storm, and so you had the Comey letter and you had the enormous impact of the Russian theft of emails, the release of them by WikiLeaks, basically now a part of the Russian intelligence apparatus, and the weaponization of that. These were all new phenomena."
"So you're still blaming others more than yourself?" Frei asked
"No, I take ultimate responsibility, I don't blame others, but I think it's important that people understand what happened," Clinton said. "It easy to say, ‘You know she wasn’t a good candidate.’ Then why did lead all the way to the end, why did I get nominated overwhelmingly?"
"Did people lie at the polls?" Frei interjected.
"No, I think there were intervening events that caused people to worry, to have second thoughts," she said.
Carley Shimkus: This I believe in my opinion is the smoking gun here. According to TMZ reported that the Harvey Weinstein contract with the Weinstein Company actually allowed sexual misconduct to take place. All he had to do was pay the settlement and then pay from $250,000 to one million dollars to the company and then he would be allowed to keep his job.
Jesse Watters: Oh, so it insulates him.
Carley Shimkus: Yeah, in my opinion that actually means that the Weinstein Company was profiting off of these instances of sexual assault. Also why would you have that written in your contract if it wasn’t already widely known?
Rob Schneider wants to make one thing clear about Harvey Weinstein -- the mogul is no lone wolf, and Rob knows it because he too was sexually harassed by a director.
While Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan have all blasted Weinstein for his behavior -- Rob told us this kind of harassment and abuse also happens to men. He recalled a famous "gross director" making a semi-nude pass at him.
Rob says the director is now dead, but the incident has clearly stuck with him. Likewise, actor Terry Crews went public today with a run-in he had with a male studio exec ... just last year.
