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.
A video shared on Youtube by Tamara Smith on Oct. 12 shows horrifying scenes as two people try to escape the wildfire in Loma Rica, California. The dramatic video has two men trying to escape the dangerous circumstances of a wildfire.
The footage starts with the man driving asking his fellow passenger to get out of the car and open a gate so that they can escape the harrowing fire. As soon as the man sitting in the passenger seat gets out, he can be heard shouting that he has trouble breathing because of the smoke, after which he gets back in the car and asks his friend to drive away quickly.
The recording is being done by the man sitting in the passenger seat who tells the driver that it is going to get hard to breathe. The vehicle they are driving in is identified by the driver as a Ford Expedition, as he can be heard saying, “Come on Expedition baby, you can do it, girl.”
At one point in the clip, the man driving can be heard suggesting going back but his friend refuses and asks him to escape the fire and not stop before they get out of there, “We almost got killed, man,” he says. The rest of the video shows how the two men despite under critical conditions, escape by driving their car through the nearest gate, away from the fire and the smoke quite heroically.
Melted cars. Mangled homes. Shocking drone footage shows communities of ashes created by California wildfires.
A firefighter saved a suicidal woman who tried to jump from the 5th floor in Baoji City, northwest China’s Shaanxi Province on October 10. The firefighter suddenly came out of the window above and pushed the woman back into the room.
The attempted carjacking was caught on camera in Michigan. A woman was pumping gas when a man got into her driver's seat and tried to drive off.

[Madison, Wis…] In response to a fellow student who said a campus rape could have been prevented by concealed carry, protesters wielding penis-shaped sex toys refused to answer her, and then shouted her down at Tuesday’s speech by Townhall editor Katie Pavlich on the UW-Madison campus.
The student told protesters that she has a friend who was raped, a crime that would have been prevented if her friend was able to carry her concealed weapon. After a brief silence, protesters responded by waving dildos in the air and shouting “this is what Democracy looks like” and “Cocks not Glocks.”
Inside, Pavlich told a polite, standing-room-only audience that allowing concealed carry on campus would allow young women to defend themselves in dangerous situations.
A group calling itself “Cocks Not Glocks” arranged the protest, the “Bonerfide Penis Arts Festival” in response to Pavlich’s pro-Second Amendment message.
Transgendered woman and alleged model Munroe Bergdorf attacks all white people for being racists, have white privilege, and basically any "coloured person" (sic) are not racist, only whites are racist. This person did NO favours to the cause of anti-racism by labelling EVERYTHING racist. The power of the word racist / racism has nearly disappeared because of left + snowflakes over-use of the word.
Almost every day some mainstream media reporter breaks a story about how the White House is in meltdown and the only thing standing between the nation and the abyss is Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly.
Depending which “scoop” you are reading, Trump also is about to fire Kelly or Kelly’s about to quit or Kelly is staying to protect the nation from Trump.
These scoops create a media and political frenzy that have anti-Trump politicians and media talking about invoking the 25th Amendment or some other type of intervention.
It all makes for good theater. It’s the same phenomenon I reported on when Russia was the hot media topic – a steady flow of anonymously sourced unverifiable accusations of impending doom.
In this entire media feeding frenzy, Kelly uniformly is presented as the adult in the room, the one honest person (in addition to Gen. Mattis) in the White House.
Well guess what. That one honest man just said those media reports are full of s***. Of course, he didn’t use that word, but I think that’s a fair paraphrase of what he said.
The Trump administration is claiming that they worked with Pakistan to free the family.
MSNBC’s Hans Nichols reported Thursday that President Trump’s administration had secured the release of an American family held captive by the Taliban.
“We just heard, moments ago, from President Donald Trump claiming credit, saying that the United States government, working with the Pakistani government, secured the release of this family,” Nichols said.
The American family has been handed over to U.S. authorities and ready to head home.
However, Nichols said that it was not clear how Pakistan was involved in the release, given many Trump administration officials’ distrust of the country.
Trump is making a habit of securing the release of U.S. hostages. In April, the president convinced Egypt to release American aid worker Aya Hijazi.
His administration also brought home student Otto Warmbier from North Korea, before he tragically died.
As the industry expresses its outrage against sexual harassment following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, social media has dug up footage of Aquaman and Justice League actor Jason Momoa making a joking reference to rape six years ago during a Comic-Con Game of Thrones panel. The actor quickly apologized on Instagram last night and we hear that there are no plans by Warner Bros. to hide the actor during any upcoming Justice League promotional appearances or interviews.
“I awoke in Australia to the justified reactions by many people to a distasteful joke I made years ago in Hall H for which I am sorry. I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those hurtful words. Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends. I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I said,” wrote Momoa on Instagram.
In regards to Momoa’s original joke at Comic-Con during the Game of Thrones panel he said, “As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it, and rape beautiful women.” It was that clip that went viral.
Momoa previously told the New York Post about his discomfort in shooting the rape scenes with his onscreen wife Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke.
“I’m raping Emilia [Clarke, who plays Daenerys]. I love her, but I’m hurting her and she’s crying. We could have made it longer, but you get the idea,” said Momoa, “I’m not a rapist! I prefer my women to enjoy sex … Just do whatever your woman wants, and you’ll be fine.”
Students aggressively mock, harass Charles Murray at UMich
Charles Murray’s event at the University of Michigan was completely overthrown by student protesters, who occupied the auditorium and loudly interrupted Murray for 40 minutes before sauntering out of the room.
The event, set to begin at 6:00 p.m. EST, was immediately shut down by protesters before Murray even was given a chance to begin as one demonstrator projected a “white supremacist” hologram above his head.
“Charles Murray go away; sexist, racist, KKK! Charles Murray go away; sexist, racist KKK!,” protesters continually shouted, seemingly occupying the majority of the seats in the venue, according to a live stream of the event provided by the school’s College Republicans chapter who hosted the event.
At one point a man who identified himself as the school’s director of public affairs took the microphone while attempting to ask student protesters to remain quiet.
“We’ve been silent too long!” protesters repeatedly shouted in response, with another yelling “stop silencing students of color!”
The administrator appeared to continue delivering the statement he had come make, but was drowned out by protesters, who took to remarking on the presence of police officers in the auditorium.
Until protesters left the venue, Murray was allowed only brief periods to speak, as one protester took to the stage to ask him a question.
“Do you not understand that your book undermines our very means of speaking?” one protester asked as he walked up on stage to confront Murray personally, mocking Murray’s commitment to free speech.

The president is unhappy with the network’s reporting on the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
President Trump called NBC “fake news” for their report on nuclear weapons in remarks to the press from the Oval Office on Wednesday.
NBC reported earlier Wednesday that the president had asked for a tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear stockpile:
President Donald Trump said he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a gathering this past summer of the nation’s highest-ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room.
Trump’s comments, the officials said, came in response to a briefing slide he was shown that charted the steady reduction of U.S. nuclear weapons since the late 1960s. Trump indicated he wanted a bigger stockpile, not the bottom position on that downward-sloping curve.
“That was just fake news by NBC, which gives a lot of fake news lately,” he said.
Trump denied that he ever asked for such an increase in the arsenal. Instead, he said that he only asked for modernization of the stockpile.
“It’s frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write,” he added.
Colorado school teachers in at least one small town will now be permitted to carry guns in school in order to protect their students, their co-workers and themselves.
School officials in Briggsdale voted to approve the concealed carry of handguns for teachers, providing the educators participate in ongoing training.
Unfortunately for teachers in Wisconsin, they won’t be afforded the same self-defense protections. A bill to allow retired and off-duty police officers to carry concealed weapons at schools will not be put up for a vote.
Teachers at the Colorado school must agree to going to the firing range and shooting at least 100 rounds per month in order to remain in compliance with the guns-in-the-classroom program. Of course, firing 100 rounds just once per month is both an affordable and enjoyable training task for the majority of gun owners.
Briggsdale Superintendent Rick Mondt told local media that the rural location of the school makes arming teachers important. The school is about 20 minutes away from a police station.
CNN’s Dana Bash and Chris Cillizza both thought the Obamas’ silence on Weinstein was odd.
Following Hillary Clinton’s response to allegations of sexual harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, CNN’s Dana Bash and Chris Cillizza wondered why the Obamas have remained silent about Weinstein.
“The other question is where are the Obamas? Where is Michelle Obama? Where is President Obama?” Bash asked. “I mean, it makes no sense at all that they are not coming out and saying something, nevermind the question of the donations.”
Cillizza then noted that there would be a huge outcry from Democrats if this had been a Republican donor who acted like Weinstein and top Republicans like former President George W. Bush didn’t respond to the allegations.
“The issue is this is behavior that rightly should be condemned. When you are the two most prominent faces in the Democrat Party, and they still are, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, the fact it went five days with not a word, I guess, I’m echoing Dana: just odd,” Cillizza concluded.
A custodian at Merrimack High School makes kids smile every week by waiting at the door to high five them as they walk into the building.
Jodie Wedge Cole, who works at the high school, said she has been watching Kevin Freeman's weekly routine outside her office every week and asked him on Friday if she could post a video on Facebook.
“He’s just a great guy who really cares about the kids. I’ve been watching him do this outside my office every week,” Cole said.
"What can I say, I loooooove my job," Freeman commented on the post.
One Russian-linked campaign posing as part of the Black Lives Matter movement used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Pokémon Go and even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN has learned.
The campaign, titled “Don’t Shoot Us,” offers new insights into how Russian agents created a broad online ecosystem where divisive political messages were reinforced across multiple platforms, amplifying a campaign that appears to have been run from one source — the shadowy, Kremlin-linked troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency.
A source familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN that the Don’t Shoot Us Facebook page was one of the 470 accounts taken down after the company determined they were linked to the IRA. CNN has separately established the links between the Facebook page and the other Don’t Shoot Us accounts.
The Don’t Shoot Us campaign — the title of which may have referenced the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan that became popular in the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown — used these platforms to highlight incidents of alleged police brutality, with what may have been the dual goal of galvanizing African Americans to protest and encouraging other Americans to view black activism as a rising threat.
A man accused of killing a South Carolina high school student had been protected from deportation under the DACA program, U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News Thursday evening.
Daniel De Jesus Rangel-Sherrer, 19, is accused of murder, kidnapping and possession of a weapon during a violent crime in connection with the death of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez.
Martinez-Gonzalez, a junior at Greenville High School, was found dead in a wooded area Oct. 4. Officials said she had been forced into the woods and shot multiple times in the head.
"Immediately upon contact, [Rangel-Sherrer] confessed to one of the deputies," Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis told reporters.
Investigators said a friend of Martinez-Gonzalez was also held against her will by the suspect, but she managed to escape and contact authorities. It's not clear how Rangel-Sherrer and Martinez-Gonzalez knew each other.
On Tuesday's episode of MSNBC's "Deadline White House," host Nicolle Wallace said the Second Amendment was intended to help fight against "foreign militias," not to create an "armed population" while interviewing gun-control activists.
Wallace used New York Times columnist Bret Stephens recent op-ed calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment as a jumping-off point while interviewing John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, and actress Julianne Moore. "A conservative wrote a piece last week that got a lot of attention about maybe opening up the conversation about the Second Amendment," Wallace said. "His name is Bret Stephens, and he said the intellectually honest way to have this debate is to say that this isn't what was intended, that we're an armed population. This was a right to bear arms against foreign militias."
Stephens, however, does not claim in his column that the Second Amendment was not intended to mean America should be an armed population or that it doesn't protect a right to arms. Stephens instead recognizes the right and argues that the protection of it should be repealed. "I wonder what Madison would have to say about that today, when more than twice as many Americans perished last year at the hands of their fellows as died in battle during the entire Revolutionary War," Stephens wrote. "My guess: Take the guns—or at least the presumptive right to them—away."
Additionally, though the Second Amendment says "a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State," it does not mention "foreign militias." Instead, it specifically reads "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Feinblatt responded to Wallace's question by saying he believed the Supreme Court should reconsider its 2008 ruling in Heller vs D.C., which confirmed the Second Amendment's protection of individual gun ownership, and pointed out that the Court stated certain regulations of gun rights remains constitutional.
"Look, there's no doubt that I think the Second Amendment decision ought to be looked at but we also ought to look at the decision itself," he said. "The NRA tries to characterize it as an absolute right but Rehnquist went out of his way in writing that decision that says it's actually the Second Amendment is subject to reasonable regulation."
Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the opinion for the Court in that case, not William Rehnquist. William Rehnquist's tenure at the Supreme Court ended three years earlier when he passed away on September 3, 2005.
Boynton Beach police have released the body camera video of what they say is two moms overdosing with their one and two month old babies in the back seat. WPTV was first to request the video.
The British-built Sentinel-5P satellite, which could saves thousands of deaths caused by pollution, has been launched in to orbit today. There were cheers at the European Space Agency’s technical hub in the Netherlands when the £50 million satellite successfully communicated with Earth at 12.01pm UK time. The satellite has been nine years in planning and was built at the Airbus factory in Stevenage. It will now provide rapid accurate pollution data which could prevent thousands of early deaths each year by tracking deadly smog clouds. There was a hushed silence as the Sentinel-5P was launched at 10.27am UK time from a remote location in northern Russia on a missile built to carry a nuclear warhead. There then followed around an hour and a half when space scientists had no way of knowing where the unmanned aircraft was, and if it was on track to successfully enter the Earth’s orbit.
An attempted robbery in Detroit didn't go as planned for the suspect, when the intended victim pulled out a gun and started shooting in defense. A Concealed Pistol License holder acted quickly, pulled his gun and shot the armed suspect to end the threat. Police told the CPL holder it was a good thing he was legally armed or he and his cousin may not be alive today.
