U.S. Donald Trump Government Shutdown Conservative political commentator and author Ann Coulter on Monday relentlessly mocked former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich and President Donald Trump, after both hit back at her criticisms of the commander-in-chief’s decision Friday to temporarily end the government shutdown without funding for his border wall. Coulter, who has heavily scrutinized Trump for thus far failing to fulfill his biggest campaign promise of building the wall, on Friday ripped Trump without naming him by tweeting: “Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.” Trump on Sunday told The Wall Street Journal of Coulter, “I hear she’s become very hostile. Maybe I didn’t return her phone call or something.” On Monday, Gingrich, who served as speaker from 1995 to 1999, said on Fox News’ Fox & Friends show that Trump … [Read more...] about Ann Coulter Mocks Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich Over Wall Defense: ‘Kissing the Emperor’s Ass’

With projected debts of over $70 billion, about 70% of the national GDP, and an inflation rate of 24.75% as well as an unemployment level of 25%, the resource rich but heavily indebted Angola has decided to spend even more. The country would be spending $198 million to modernize its national airline and hundreds of millions more to re-builde its central airport – thanks to tainted China’s CIF Sam Pa’s consortium. It’s a story of mega corruption, total deceit and official recklessness. Under the pretext of reforms, J Lourenco’s extravaganza has been overshadowed by Sonangol’s Chairman and his Economic advisor to the Presidency.

Cary Fukunaga (right) directs Justin Theroux in his new Netflix series Maniac. Michele K. Short / Netflix It’s hard to get a career off the ground in Hollywood, even after an early success story. Just ask Cary Fukunaga. As detailed in GQ this summer, the director had an overwhelming victory with his first season of HBO’s True Detective but then hit a bit of a wall. Netflix touted his 2015 war drama Beasts of No Nation as a Best Picture contender, but it walked away from the Oscars with a goose egg of nominations. He then invested more than a year into adapting Stephen King’s It for the big screen before abandoning the project over creative differences (he did receive a writing credit for the 2017 flick). As a hot young filmmaker who seemed to be on an upward trajectory, Fukunaga found himself largely in the same spot he was in back in 2014. Potential means nothing without results.Fast-forward to today and Fukunaga is reaching the apex of hype with … [Read more...] about Cary Fukunaga Is the New ‘James Bond’ Director—Can He Finally Live Up to the Hype?
