  1. The ULTIMATE "Rick Roll"....

    I'm afraid to click on it.
  2. Twin Peaks

    I'm still watching this show but I don't think I really like it. There are parts I like and characters I like but it's a little too out there for me. I'll see it through to the end though if only to see Eddie Vedder.
  3. Billy Joel Dresses the Part

    Good for you Billy.
  4. Anybody watching "Orphan Black"?

    Finally watched the end of Orphan Black. What a wonderful show this has been. Loved all the 'seestras' but I am especially fond of Helena and Alison. They brought the humor to the show. Felix, Art and Donnie were great too. I will really miss it but it ended perfectly and right on time I think.
  5. What's the last film you sat & watched?

    That would be the one! It was a good movie.
  6. Bannon's War

    Steve Bannon Reportedly Calls Jared Kushner And Ivanka Trump ‘Javanka’ Behind Their Backs ’s exit from the Trump administration was reportedly carefully orchestrated for weeks, but The New York Times reports that he was ousted from his post as White House chief strategist following his bizarre, surprising interview with The American Prospect, a progressive publication. The Times report, which includes new details about Bannon’s removal, also sheds light on his relationship with President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. “Mr. Bannon openly complained to White House colleagues that he resented how Ms. Trump would try to undo some of the major policy initiatives that he and Mr. Trump agreed were important to the president’s economic nationalist agenda, like withdrawing from the Paris climate accords,” the Times’ Jeremy W. Peters and Maggie Haberman reported. Bannon referred to the couple by their so-called celebrity nickname behind their backs, they reported. “Mr. Bannon made little secret of the fact that he believed ‘Javanka,’ as he referred to the couple behind their backs, had naïve political instincts and were going to alienate Mr. Trump’s core coalition of white working-class voters,” according to Peters and Haberman. Bannon, who returned to Breitbart News on Friday, has said he can more easily push the president’s nationalist agenda from outside the White House. Reports have also surfaced suggesting that the former chief strategist plans to seek revenge on Kushner ― he, along with Ivanka Trump, reportedly had a hand in Bannon’s removal. Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman wrote Sunday: Bannon’s main targets are the West Wing’s coterie of New York Democrat ‘globalists’—Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn—as well as the ‘hawks,’ comprised of National Security Adviser H.R McMaster and his deputy, Dina Powell. ‘He wants to beat their ideas into submission,’ Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow told me. ‘Steve has a lot of things up his sleeve.’ Sherman also noted that two of the stories that led Breitbart News on Sunday focused on Ivanka Trump and Kushner.

  7. Bannon's War

    Steve Bannon reportedly wants Priebus to testify to Mueller that Jared Kushner was behind Comey's firing Ousted White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is gearing up for battle and has set his sights on President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, according to Vanity Fair. Bannon and Kushner have a long history of disagreement, with the two frequently butting heads on the ideological plane, where Bannon's far-right nationalist instincts clashed with Kushner's more moderate views. In the wake of his ouster, Bannon is looking to even the score with West Wing rivals like Kushner, Vanity Fair reported. In keeping with that, Bannon reportedly wants former chief of staff Reince Priebus to testify to special counsel Robert Mueller that Kushner was significantly involved in Trump's decision to fire former FBI director James Comey in May. According to Vanity Fair, Priebus believes Kushner and his wife, Ivanka, convinced Trump to fire Comey during a weekend they spent with the president at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. When Trump returned to the White House on May 8, he informed aides that he was going to fire Comey, and he dismissed the FBI director the next day. Comey's firing drew wide condemnation, and as accusations that Trump had fired Comey to obstruct an ongoing FBI counterintelligence investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Moscow in 2016 began piling up, deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel in charge of overseeing the investigation. Mueller's team has cast a wide net in its probe, looking at multiple Trump confidants like former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Mueller is also diving into the Trump family's finances and business dealings, including Kushner's. Kushner met separately with the Russian ambassador to the US and a Russian businessman in December. Those interactions that were already under scrutiny as part of the FBI probe, but sources informed The Washington Post of the financial focus of the investigation. During the meeting at Trump Tower with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, Kushner reportedly floated the possibility of establishing a back channel line of communication between the Trump transition team and Russia. The White House has said that Kushner's subsequent meeting with Sergey Gorkov, CEO of Russia's state-owned Vnesheconombank, was unrelated to business matters. But the FBI is looking into whether Gorkov suggested to Kushner that Russian banks could finance the business ventures of Trump's associates if US sanctions were lifted or relaxed. Kushner met with the Senate Intelligence Committee in late July and told reporters afterward that he "did not collude" with Russia during the election and added that he had "nothing to hide."
