A new Super PAC is seeking to make Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump the next occupant of the White House.
The campaign group known as Trumpocrats PAC is made up of Democrats who distrust and oppose Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and who have switched their support to the GOP standard bearer.
The executive director of the organization is Christian Rickers, a lifelong Democrat who voted in the primary election for then-Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Read more...
Despite mainstream media rumblings that the 2016 presidential race is virtually over, GOP nominee Donald Trump recently took hold of the ball and with his eye firmly on the goalpost is making a run for it.
In recent days Trump invited new people onboard his campaign team, made a series of policy related speeches, expressed regret for hurt he may previously have caused with ill-chosen words, started a dialogue with voters in communities of color, took a trip to flood-stricken Louisiana to comfort folks and provide much-needed supplies, and revved up his television ads in some key battleground states.

The news media are the story in this year’s presidential election cycle.
Journalistic ethics have been abandoned in favor of the politics of personal preference.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the nasty and distorted news coverage of the presidential campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
In a recent interview on Newsmax TV, Emmy award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson told host Steve Malzberg that she saw and heard an ex-news media bureau chief urge journalists to jettison their ethics and focus on bringing down Trump.
During the television appearance, Attkisson recounted her attendance at an awards dinner in Washington, D.C. for a journalist group. Read more...
In today’s Hollywood there is apparently a price to be paid for supporting Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy.
Just ask the latest celebrity who has been put on notice.
Antonio Sabato Jr., who has appeared in movies, television shows, daytime dramas, and reality TV feats the likes of “The Big Hit,” “Charmed,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and “Dancing with the Stars,” just revealed that he has been blacklisted in Hollywood because of his backing of Trump.
Sabato got the attention of the Hollywood left when he took to the stage alongside fellow celebrities Scott Baio and Willie Robertson at the Republican National Convention. Read more...
Reports circulating in recent days indicate that the computers of 3 Democratic Party institutions have been hacked: the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and the campaign files of Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The said cyber-attacks relate to the unprecedented political scandal in which Hillary has been embroiled throughout her primary campaign; that being, the violation of federal law through the use of an unsecured private server that contained classified information.
Hillary’s use of an unprotected home server essentially opened wide a portal for digital thieves to surreptitiously cart away massive amounts of data, which were housed in various computers that existed to service Democratic Party institutions and affiliated individuals. Read more...
The pressure is on big-time this week for Hillary Clinton and all of her political, media, and special interest cohorts.
As the Democratic National Committee readies itself to lower its opening gavel at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, WikiLeaks, the controversial organization that routinely publishes tidbits of previously undisclosed information, is priming the anti-establishment pump.
The convention is set to take place July 25-28 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.
Interestingly, while party officials, public speakers, and event planners were working overtime, WikiLeaks was living up to its name. Just last Friday the group let 20,000 emails dribble out. The digital communications purportedly had DNC origins. Read more...
Like the great Ronald Reagan before him, Donald Trump appears to possess superb Hollywood instincts.
With his understanding of how politics and entertainment are a perfect match, Trump has systematically rewritten every campaign playbook out there. Now the GOP presidential nominee is set to host a party that is likely to forever alter political conventions to come.
A hint that the public is in store for something really different begins with the convention’s line-up of speakers.
Like a Barbara Walters’ “Most Fascinating People” special, the roster of those who will be gracing the Republican National Convention stage includes an eclectic mix of the political, the prosperous, and the popular. Read more...
Illumination Entertainment’s “The Secret Life of Pets” unexpectedly dominated the weekend’s box office.
The comedic 3D computer-animated family film is the latest release from Illumination, the company that delivered the highly successful “Despicable Me” and its big-screen offshoot “Minions.”
With competition typically benefitting a movie hungry public, entertainment’s rising studio is looking more and more like a genuine alternative to animation giant Pixar. With its higher-than-expected $103 million debut weekend, “Pets” managed to dethrone Pixar’s “Finding Dory.” It also took the crown for having the best opening for a non-sequel, non-spin-off animated film, beating the $90 million debut of Pixar’s “Inside Out.” Read more...
Disney must have been thinking it would have a big friendly box-office hit on its hands with the timely Fourth of July weekend release of “The BFG.”
Unfortunately for the studio giant, the numbers tell a bit of a different story. “BFG” brought in a modest $19.6 million in box-office revenue over the weekend and $22.2 million for the four day holiday. Mixed reviews from critics and some unfavorable comments on social media sites did not help the movie’s launch. In addition, the family-oriented film has a $140 million production budget to overcome and is likely to end up in the loss column for Disney. Read more...
One might think that the ideal time to release a big-budget summer sci-fi film would be the Fourth of July weekend, particularly when the movie itself bears the holiday’s name.
Not so this time around for Roland Emmerich’s “Independence Day: Resurgence.”
The much-anticipated flick underwhelmed the North American box office over the past weekend, with a lower-than-expected take of $41.6 million.
In a typical summer season, an alien invasion blockbuster-in-waiting would draw in audiences like a high-powered magnet, attracting with ease those in search of some mindless relief and knock-out fun. Read more...
