James Woods’ loving the lesson in ABC ‘Roseanne’ disaster: ‘I hope she hijacks their a**es for a fortune …’

James Woods embarked on a tweet-storm Saturday, lending his important voice to a whole range of current topics, beginning with the report that senior executives at ABC believe they overreacted in firing comedian Roseanne Barr for her controversial tweet, saying it would have been more appropriate to suspend her.

‘People want Roseanne!’ ABC execs fear spin-off show The Conners will crash without its fired star

No Roseanne. No show.

Top ABC brass may have acted too swiftly by pulling the plug on Roseanne – and they now fear the show’s replacement spin-off will flop without its star.

Two senior executives at the network have told DailyMailTV that firing the actress was a ‘knee-jerk’ reaction by ABC’s president and admitted that temporarily suspending Barr may have been a wiser decision.

‘We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,’ one insider said.

Why did ‘Fahrenheit 11/9,’ Michael Moore’s latest movie, flop at the box office?

In an environment of political upheaval, with left- and right-wing parties at each other’s throats and a nation grappling with its presidential situation, Moore’s latest was expected to stoke fires on both sides. As made clear by the drastically low attendance in theaters, it didn’t come close.

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison for 2004 sex assault

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Bill Cosby was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years in state prison for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman over a decade ago. Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill handed down the sentence after he ruled Cosby to be a “sexually violent predator” for the assault on Temple University women’s basketball administrator Andrea Constand at the comedian’s estate near Philadelphia in 2004.

The classification means that Cosby must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools and victims.

Hollywood Can’t (Won’t) Make Awesome Movies Anymore

When Burt Reynolds drove his celestial Trans-Am into the Great Beyond he took a significant chunk of America’s dwindling reserve of testosterone along with him. Unless you grew up in the ‘70s, its hard to understand his influence and impact, and how he reflected what Americans (particularly American men) wanted to be. Flicks like The Longest Yard, Smokey and the Bandit, and the criminally underrated Sharkey’s Machine, all offered us a tough but funny hero who took on the bullies in authority with a smirk, a joke, and when appropriate, a football to the “nether regions.”

Of course, you couldn’t make any of those movies in 2018.

Missing in Action: The American Flag on the Moon

…Rewriting history and erasing images are symptoms of budding totalitarianism. The moon landing was “one giant step for mankind.” Omitting the planting of the American flag is another small step away from freedom and toward totalitarianism. Totalitarians do not really care whether you believe their lies. If you do, you help to maintain their power. If, however, you do not believe the lies, yet are forced to repeat them, you admit that you have sold your mind — and perhaps your soul.

One Giant Lie

Hollywood makes a movie about the moon landing—and omits America.

Hollywood has made a movie about an iconic American event, but ditched the icon. It has created a smarmy, dishonest, and dollar-driven perversion of the truth, akin to making a movie about the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics and leaving out a certain hockey gameFirst Man is director Damien Chazelle’s account of astronaut Neil Armstrong’s arrival on the moon 49 years ago. By all accounts, the film does a magnificent technical job of representing a great voyage of discovery. But in this version, Chazelle and his leading man, Ryan Gosling, excise the image that defined the event: that of the American flag, planted firmly on the surface of the moon. It’s an image for the ages—but not for Chazelle and his star.

Hollywood Cut Out The Flag, So Let’s Cut Out Hollywood

I don’t go to the movies much anymore, not just because most of movies are garbage but because I despise liberal Hollywood as much as it despises me – which is to say, a lot. Most of you feel the same way. We’re done with Tinseltown’s Hillary-hugging, woman-abusing, Normal-dissing antics. Why should we hand over our hard-earned bucks to a bunch of left wing jerks who hate our guts?

We shouldn’t…

Our New Hollywood Overlords

Some people never learn, and thank God for that. If failure were an actual deterrent we would have never made it to the moon and back or accomplished any of the most of amazing feats of mankind. That spirit doesn’t always have a victorious outcome, and thanks God for that too. Because if it did, Hollywood wouldn’t keep shooting themselves in their collective foot and doing damage to the liberal agenda they continue to push.

Americans United for Life Issues Statement on Reluctant 11th Circuit Upholds Injunction Against Alabama Abortion Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senior Counsel for the leading pro-life advocacy group Americans United for Life (AUL), Clarke Forsythe, has issued the following statement:

“The Eleventh Circuit’s decision yesterday striking down the Alabama prohibition on dismemberment abortion was disappointing but not unexpected, given the Supreme Court’s 2016 abortion decision that gave little room for the States to protect maternal health or the unborn child from abortion. What is striking is the fact that two of the three judges on this case were openly critical of the Supreme Court’s abortion jurisprudence, with the Chief Judge saying the court was forced to apply “the aberration of constitutional law relating to abortion” and strike down the law, and the second judge simply stating that Roe [the pro-abortion law] “has no basis in constitutional law.” Their voices are now added to the more than a dozen federal judges who have said that Roe is unworkable and must be re-examined.”

AUL, the nation’s premier pro-life legal team, works through the law and legislative process to one end: achieving comprehensive legal protection for human life from conception to natural death.

It’s hard to tell what’s happening in a battle amid all the smoke and noise but some clear outlines may be beginning to appear…
