Jeff Bridges urges Twitter followers to donate to ‘good buddy’ Steve Bullock’s campaign

Actor Jeff Bridges lend a hand to his “good buddy,” Gov. Steve Bullock, D-Mont., in order to help him qualify for the Democratic debates.

“Hey. I’m here with a simple request of you guys. What I’d love you to do is send a buck in to my good buddy, Montana Governor Steve Bullock,” Bridges told his Twitter followers in a video on Monday.

“You see, here’s the deal; for the first time in history, the Democratic National Committee is choosing who can be in the presidential debates based on the number of donors each candidate has.”

The Oscar-winning actor praised Bullock as the “only governor in the race” and touted how he was the “only one who has in a Trump state.” He also credited the candidate for dedicating his “entire career” to get “dark money out of politics.”

BULLOCK TAKES AIM AT THE DNC  FOR ENABLING STEYER: BUYING YOUR WAY INTO DEBATES IS BAD FOR DEMOCRACY 

“So please, I don’t care if you vote for somebody else, but it’s so important to have Steve Bullock’s voice up on that debate stage,” Bridges continued. “So please go to SteveBullock.com and donate. Even if its a buck, man. Come on. His voice needs to be heard.”

The “Big Lewbowski” star previously made a $500 campaign contribution to Bullock’s campaign as well as two separate $1,000 contribution to spiritual guru Marianne Williamson‘s campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.

The DNC has heightened the requirements for the fall debates, allowing candidates who have polled at least 2 percent in four qualifying individual polls and a minimum of 130,000 unique donors. Bullock has yet to reach the polling and donor thresholds. In the latest Fox News poll, he had zero percent support among likely Democratic primary voters.

Meanwhile, billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer met the requirements to qualify for the October debate. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard needs two more qualifying polls and Marianne Williamson needs three before the cutoff towards the end of the month.

Ric Ocasek’s cause of death revealed

Ric Ocasek — the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame singer whose popular new wave band, The Cars, helped define the sound of rock music in the late 1970s and ’80s — died from hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, according to the NYC medical examiner.

Pulmonary emphysema was also a contributing factor in Ocasek’s death, the medical examiner said Monday. According to the medical examiner, the manner of death was natural.

The 75-year-old was found dead in his New York City apartment on Sunday, a police spokesman told Fox News.

RIC OCASEK, LEAD SINGER OF NEW WAVE BAND THE CARS, FOUND DEAD IN NYC APARTMENT, POLICE SAY

His estranged wife, supermodel Paulina Porizkova, found him unresponsive Sunday afternoon at his home in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park neighborhood, sources told the New York Post, adding that he apparently died of natural causes. Police said there was no sign of foul play.

On Monday, Porizkova broke her silence, sharing a photo of flowers left outside the New York City townhouse she and the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer shared, writing simply, “Thank you.”

RIC OCASEK’S WIDOW PAULINA PORIZKOVA SPEAKS OUT AFTER THE CARS’ SINGER’S DEATH

The Cars’ self-titled 1978 debut album was a smash hit, boosted by singles including “Just What I Needed.” The album helped lead the way for new wave’s influence on rock music throughout the following decade.

The band’s 1981 single “Shake It Up” hit #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while 1984’s “Drive” hit #3.

“I liked songwriters, I was always attracted to people like Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Gene Vincent in the ’50s, and when the ’60s came, of course I loved The Beatles, but I also loved the Velvet Underground, Captain Beefheart, and Frank Zappa,” Ocasek told The Vinyl District earlier this year. “I certainly always loved a good pop song. I always liked great songs, and it didn’t matter if it was from the Carpenters or Lou Reed. As long as they were done well and they weren’t corny or fake.”

The band broke up in the late ’80s, as Ocasek embarked on a solo career. His 1986 single “Emotion in Motion” was Ocasek’s only song to crack the Top 40 without The Cars behind him.

Texas bank robbery suspect killed in crash after police chase where speeds topped 130 mph

A bank robbery suspect in Texas was killed after trying to escape police on Thursday when he lost control and crashed during a chase that saw speeds topping 130 mph, officials said.

The Lufkin Police Department said in a news release posted to Facebook that investigators were looking for two men who robbed a bank in Wharton around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.

The men — identified as LeEdward Hopkins, 43, and Tony Mitchell 42, both of Houston — then sped off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Around 7 p.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety learned that Hopkins may have been in the Lufkin area, traveling north on Loop 287 in a black Dodge Challenger. A Lufkin police officer then spotted the vehicle and tried to conduct a traffic stop, but officials said Hopkins refused to pull over.

Hopkins then continued on U.S. 59 toward the city of Nacogdoches as multiple agencies joined the pursuit. Officers made an attempt to shoot out Hopkins’ back tire but were unsuccessful.

“Hopkins broke away from law enforcement as he neared Nacogdoches city limits, reaching speeds of more than 130 mph,” police said. “He lost control of the vehicle after one of his tires was spiked near Woodland Hills Golf Course.”

‘Saturday Night Live’ fires new cast member Shane Gillis for using racial slur

Shane Gillis will not be appearing on “Saturday Night Live” this fall.

Less than a week after the comedian was announced as a new cast member for Season 45 of the Emmy-winning sketch series, he was fired.

“After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL,”  an SNL spokesperson told Deadline on behalf of Lorne Michaels, the iconic series’ creator and producer. “We want SNL to have a variety of voices and points of view within the show, and we hired Shane on the strength of his talent as a comedian and his impressive audition for SNL.

‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’ TAPS ALUM EDDIE MURPHY, TAYLOR SWIFT AND MORE FOR SEASON 45

“We were not aware of his prior remarks that have surfaced over the past few days. The language he used is offensive, hurtful and unacceptable.  We are sorry that we did not see these clips earlier, and that our vetting process was not up to our standard.”

Gillis took to Twitter to react to the news. He wrote, “It feels ridiculous for comedians to be making serious public statements but here we are.”

“I’m a comedian who was funny enough to get SNL. That can’t be taken away.”

“Of course I wanted an opportunity to prove myself at SNL, but I understand It would too much of a distraction. I respect the decision they made. I’m honestly grateful for the opportunity. I was always a mad tv guy any.”

NBC announced Thursday that Gillis would be one of three new cast members on the venerable variety show, a launching pad for many comedy stars over the past several decades.

Hours later, a YouTube video surfaced of Gillis and fellow comedian Matt McCusker discussing an unidentified city’s Chinatown neighborhood.

At one point, Gillis asked: “Why do the f—ing c—ks live there?” before complaining that Chinese restaurants are full of “f—ing Chinese. … And the translation between you and the waiter is just such a f—ing hassle.” He also said he was more annoyed by hearing an Asian trying to learn English when he’s eating out than by any other “minority” playing music.

He characterized that reaction as “nice racism, good racism,” adding that whites would be a similar target if they were speaking English “over there,” not specifying where he meant.

Early Saturday, Page Six reported that Gillis had described 2020 presidential contender Andrew Yang as a “Jew c—k” on a podcast hosted by fellow comedians Luis J. Gomez and Zac Amico.

LESLIE JONES EXITING ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’ AFTER FIVE SEASONS: REPORT

In a statement late Thursday, Gillis offered to apologize “to anyone who’s actually offended by anything I’ve said.” (Yang has said he was offended, but did not call for the comedian to be fired.)

“I’m a comedian who pushes boundaries,” the statement began. “I sometimes miss. If you go through my 10 years of comedy, most of it bad, you’re going to find a lot of bad misses. … My intention is never to hurt anyone but I am trying to be the best comedian I can be and sometimes that requires risks.

The other two comedians joining the cast are Bowen Yang and Chloe Fineman. Yang who joined NBC’s “SNL” last season as a staff writer. He’s also the co-host of a podcast, “Las Culturistas.”

Fineman’s been a regular performer with the Groundlings improv company. She was also featured as one of the “New Faces” at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.

Kavanaugh accuser’s friend dismisses original allegations, detail also not mentioned in NYT excerpt of book

Leland Keyser, a friend of Christine Blasey Ford who allegedly was at the party where Ford says Brett Kavanaugh assaulted her decades ago, now says the story “just didn’t make any sense.”

That revelation is contained in a forthcoming book, by New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, titled “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” But the Times omitted any reference to Keyser’s comments in a widely panned article this weekend by Pogrebin and Kelly that was adapted from the book.

NYT FORCED TO ISSUE EDITORS’ NOTE, ADDING INFORMATION THAT ALLEGED VICTIM DOESN’T EVEN REMEMBER SUPPOSED ASSAULT

The Times’ article instead included an uncorroborated allegation from a Clinton-linked lawyer claiming Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted a female student, without mentioning that the student did not recall the events in question. The Times later published a major update to include those details, along with an editors’ note, but not before virtually all major Democratic presidential candidates had called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.

“I don’t have any confidence in the story,” Keyser told the reporters of Ford’s claims, according to outlets that have reviewed advance copies of the forthcoming book.

“Those facts together I don’t recollect, and it just didn’t make any sense,” Keyser added.

Specifically, Keyser challenged Ford’s narrative that sometime in the summer of 1982, Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge assaulted her at a party also attended by Keyser and P.J. Smith.

“Those facts together I don’t recollect, and it just didn’t make any sense.”

— Leland Keyser

Ford has been unable to identify exactly where or when the alleged assault occurred, or how she got home after the incident.

Keyser reportedly remarked: “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home.” Keyser told Pogrebin and Kelly, “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

Last year, Keyser, speaking through her attorney, said she could not corroborate Ford’s claims. Keyser told the FBI she felt pressured by partisan activists and Ford’s friends to change her account and later revised her statement to indicate that she believed Ford despite her lack of memory of the episode.

Keyser’s initial statement was that “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”

The revised statement from Keyser’s attorney read: “Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford’s account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford’s account. However, the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate it because she has no recollection of the incident in question.”

2020 DEMS CONTINUE TO PUSH FOR KAVANAUGH IMPEACHMENT, DESPITE DUD NYT ‘BOMBSHELL’ GOING BUST

The Times’ authors, in the book, cast doubt on Keyser’s memory, writing that “Keyser’s memory might be affected by her struggles with alcohol and other substances.” Keyser, though, also informed the reporters of an apparent smear campaign directed at her, in an effort to get her to change her story.

Ford, in her explosive testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last year, indicated that it wasn’t surprising Keyser wouldn’t remember the episode.

“She didn’t know about the event. She was downstairs during the event and I did not share it with her,” Ford said.

Ford added: “Leland has significant health challenges, and I’m happy that she’s focusing on herself and getting the health treatment that she needs, and she let me know that she needed her lawyer to take care of this for her, and she texted me right afterward with an apology and good wishes, and et cetera.”

Rather than mention Keyser’s latest remarks, the Times’ article instead focused on a new accuser mentioned in the book, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh. But the Times’ article omitted key details from the book, including that the accuser herself had no recollection of the event.

The Times later published an editors’ note adding information about the accuser’s denials, but not before virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates demanded Kavanaugh’s’ impeachment.

Throughout the day on Sunday, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and Julian Castro, among others, declared that Kavanaugh must be removed from office, citing the allegation.

The Times’ update also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no other comment about the episode.

The only firsthand account concerning the supposed attack in the original piece, which was published on Saturday, came from a Clinton-connected lawyer who claimed to have witnessed it. The lawyer, Max Stier, did not actually provide his account directly; the Times acknowledged that “two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier” had relayed his supposed version of events.

The Times did not mention Stier’s work as a Clinton defense attorney, or Stier’s legal battles with Kavanaugh during the Whitewater investigation, and simply called him a “respected thought leader.”

The Times went on to note in the article that it had “corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier,” but the article apparently meant only that the Times had corroborated that Stier made his claim to the FBI. No firsthand corroboration of the alleged episode was apparently obtained.

The Times’ revision stated: “Editors’ Note: An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”

The Times’ update came only after The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway, who reviewed an advance copy of the book, first flagged the article’s omission on Twitter — prompting other commentators to press the issue.

The Times did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News seeking comment. But commentators made clear they felt the paper’s note wasn’t sufficient.

“Should I be surprised at this point that the NYT would make such an unforgivable oversight?” asked RealClearInvestigations’ Mark Hemingway.

Wrote the Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy: “Crazy how the ‘one element’ that wasn’t included in the original article was the part where the alleged victim’s friends said she doesn’t remember it happening.”

For his part, President Trump unloaded on the Times, and suggested Kavanaugh should sue.

“The one who is actually being assaulted is Justice Kavanaugh – Assaulted by lies and Fake News!” Trump wrote. “This is all about the LameStream Media working with their partner, the Dems.”

He added: “DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT THESE HORRIBLE PEOPLE WILL DO OR SAY. They are looking to destroy, and influence his opinions – but played the game badly. They should be sued!”

Dog caught destroying book about, oops, canine training

This dog knows how to send a message.

The pet’s owner shared footage of the chaos he came home to one morning. While the mess would’ve been bad enough on its own, the dog apparently chose a very appropriate target.

Apparently, Rev was upset about having to wait to go to the dog park. (Caters)

The video was uploaded to YouTube by the user Eldermisanthropy22, who claims that he came home to the torn-up book after leaving for school early that morning. According to him, his dog wasn’t happy about not being able to go to the dog park until later in the day.

Hilariously, the footage shows the dog standing over a shredded vikynem titled “Guide to a Well-Behaved Dog.”

The footage was captioned, “This is Rev. I had school early this morning, clearly he was mad about having to wait to go to the dog park. Don’t worry we went straight to the park to play and get some wiggles out.”

Another dog was recently caught on camera, although it seems like his training is going much better.

A California resident caught his dog using his son’s training toilet in the middle of the night. The footage shows the animal properly using the small potty, although he does circle it a few times before doing the deed.

According to the dog’s owner, he discovered that the training toilet had been used the following morning. Initially, he just assumed that his wife had forgotten to clean up after their son went to the bathroom.

When he checked his cameras, however, he discovered something amazing.

Connecticut woman, 79, accused of drifting onto shoulder, killing man with her Volkswagen Beetle

A 79-year-old Connecticut woman was charged Monday in the death of a trucker who was struck by her Volkswagen Beetle when it drifted onto the shoulder of a roadway, police and local media reported.

Ramona Rubin, of Derby, was charged with one count of misconduct with a motor vehicle and one count of failure to drive in a proper lane, Town of Orange police said in a news release. She was released on $25,000 bond.

“The arrest stems from a lengthy investigation by the department’s accident reconstruction team into a motor vehicle collision on March 25, 2019, on Derby Avenue in which Ms. Rubin’s vehicle drifted onto the right shoulder of the roadway and fatally struck Steven Sylvester,” the news release said.

Jonathan Cahn’s new book draws on ancient biblical prophecies

It’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between truth and fiction when reading Jonathan Cahn‘s books. So much of what he writes about is based on real people, real events, and predictions for the future that one commentator called him a modern-day Nostradamus, the 16th Century astrologer, physician and seer, known for his predictions.

Cahn’s new book “The Oracle: Jubilean Mysteries Unveiled,” is in line with his previous offers, “The Harbinger” and “The Paradigm,” historical narratives that mix politics, espionage, and biblical prophecy.

Cahn said the story is merely the vehicle through which he delivers his message of biblical truth. He’s Jewish but was an atheist until he researched some of the biblical prophecies tied to the Jewish tradition of the reading of the scrolls.

“They’re appointed words that are read every week on the Sabbath in the synagogues,” Cahn said.

JONATHAN CAHN: WEAVING FACT FROM FICTION

This latest book draws on primarily two things — the year of jubilee and Moses’ prophetic words.

First, the Old Testament mandate of the year of jubilee. The Mosaic Law (the Law of Moses) stipulated that every seven years the Israelites were to return property to their original owners. Slaves would be freed, land would be given back, etc. But the 50th year, came at the conclusion of the heavenly number of the seventh of seven, the year of jubilee. This end of the cycle of seven sevens would be the Shmita, or Sabbatical year.

Next, a biblical prophecy, from the words of Moses that predicted a foreigner’s visit to the Land of Israel and sees its desolation (Deuteronomy 29: 22). Cahn said that visitor came 150 years ago, and that it was Mark Twain, whose famous book “The Innocents Abroad,” described the desolation of the Holy Land.

The reading of the Jewish scrolls during the same week showed the words of Moses predicting the visit.

You can choose to not believe all that Cahn ties together, but regardless, it’s a fascinating way to view today’s events, and even today’s politicians, like President Trump, whose coming to power is also featured in the book as predicted in biblical prophecy.

“Continuously, the Bible says God sends His word into the world, and it affects history,” Cahn said.

The fact of the matter is, the Bible says that God’s Word has power, that it’s not just words written on paper. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is alive and active….”

That’s either true or it isn’t. Cahn believes it is, and has written his narratives to convince his readers.

Couple surprises wedding guests with secret flash mob dance routine: ‘There was a lot of cheering’

A newlywed couple has set the dance floor — and the internet — on fire with their amazing viral choreographed flash mob.

Isaiah and Taylor Green-Jones got married in Portland, Ore., on Aug. 4. The pair, who have been together for six years, hatched the idea for a flash mob as a way to get the crowd going at the reception.

“Everyone was surprised at the wedding. No one knew, so there was a lot of cheering, a lot of yelling. It was great,” Isaiah, 29, said to WSB-TV2.

Taylor, 35, teaches dance cardio classes and worked with fellow dancer Jasmine Taylor to choreograph the flash mob dance.

The group reportedly rehearsed for a month before the wedding, and managed to keep it a secret the entire time.

The nearly three-minute performance, which included four song changes, began with the grooms showing off their impressive moves to Beyonce’s “Before I Let Go” in their matching tuxedos. Soon afterward, a group of 10 friends who had been recruited for the flash mob dance got onto the stage.

The now-viral video has been praised online for how fun and “full of energy” the dance was.

Bride, groom praised for wedding invitations with extreme RSVP penalty

A couple laid down the law when it came to guests sending an RSVP to their upcoming wedding — and those on Reddit are celebrating the move.

WOMAN SWALLOWS ENGAGEMENT RING IN HER SLEEP: ‘HOW? I DON’T KNOW, BUT I DID!’

According to the post, the couple — who was not identified — sent out invitations requesting guests RSVP by Sept. 10, 2019. However, under the traditional “declines with regret” and “accepts with pleasure” options is a warning: “If you do not RSVP by September 10th please bring a chair and a sandwich.”

An anonymous Reddit user posted a picture of the unique invitations on the “funny” subreddit along with the simple headline: “A wedding invitation, A chair and a sandwich.”

The cutthroat approach has been met with praise on the forum, with many sharing their own RSVP nightmares while planning a wedding.

“Good for them. That’s why you RSVP,” someone commented.

“I like this couple,” another wrote.

“Had an estranged uncle call me the day before my wedding to tell me him and his family of eight will be there. I told him no and haven’t heard from him since. I don’t understand people who don’t RSVP,” one person shared.

“We chased families for their RSVP,” another wrote. “My husband’s family was great. Mine sucked. It ended up working out and we got everyone but COME ON, send the g–damn thing back it takes two freaking seconds.”

Others joked that they would probably prefer to not RSVP.

“Man, I would almost be tempted to tell people to come with a chair and sandwich regardless,” one person wrote. “Would be much easier on the marrying couple.”

“That sounds great,” another quipped. “I think I’d wait until September 10th just to bring a chair and a sandwich. Nice La-Z-Boy and a meatball sub while everyone else is sitting in folding chairs eating dry chicken.”

Hopefully, all guests have responded, as the RSVP window ended last week.
