LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Firefighters have responded to help Walt Disney World park-goers who have been stuck aboard the Florida resort’s newly launched aerial cable car system.

Social media posts showed nighttime pictures or video including a crane raised to a presumably stationary gondola car and a group of cars stacked against each other in a station, some of the cars titled as if tightly packed together.

News outlets report that Disney Skyliner cable cars became stuck in the air Saturday night. A Disney spokeswoman tells the Orlando Sentinel that there have been no reported injuries.

Passengers reported on social media that they had been stuck on the enclosed cable cars for more than an hour. It was not immediately clear what caused the incident.

The Skyliner air gondolas opened to visitors last week. The cable cars whisk visitors from hotels to theme parks three stories above the ground while going 11 mph (18 kph). No more than 10 people are allowed in each cable car.

The Associated Press contributed.

Newt Gingrich: Even I get overwhelmed by politics – here’s what I do when I need a break

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6091354158001_6091351250001-vs Newt Gingrich: Even I get overwhelmed by politics – here's what I do when I need a break Newt Gingrich fox-news/opinion fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/opinion fnc f6f5f8f6-7688-5f2a-a155-390fb2f72952 article

Most any person who keeps up with American politics today – and wants to keep his or her sanity – must, from time to time, step away from the news-social media idea storm and engage a diversion.

For me, the ideal diversion is watching movies. I have always loved film and I’ve often found that really good movies help me understand and appreciate life and other perspectives in unique ways. This has been true since I was a child growing up around Army bases across the world – and it’s still true today.

As I travel back and forth from Rome, Italy, to Washington, D.C., I often watch two or three movies on the flight. It helps clear my head so I can be effective once I land. This is the topic of this week’s “Newt’s World” episode. I share my favorite movies of all time – and recommend some of the classics I encourage you to check out. I hope you will listen.

This may seem like a lark, but I think movies are a defining part of our American culture. Movies allow us to travel the world, experience tragedy, love, anger and nearly every other emotion. They help us understand a world of good vs. evil — and the necessity that good must act to defeat evil. And sometimes they reflect a moment in time, so we can gain a better understanding of history.

TODD STARNES: ‘THE HUNT’ — HOLLYWOOD OBSESSED WITH ANNIHILATING ‘DEPLORABLES’

More from Opinion

For example, when you watch “On the Waterfront,” it’s the story of a guy who is forced to stand up to the mob so he can earn an honest living free of corruption. It conceptually came out of real events on the docks in Hoboken, N.J., in the late 1940s. In the movie, the mob controls the union, which controls the port where the man wants to work as a longshoreman. The trouble is, if he wants a job, he has to give in to the union, pay money to the union, and accept the domination of the union.

Movies help us understand a world of good vs. evil — and the necessity that good must act to defeat evil.

Marlon Brando — in one of his greatest roles — plays this guy who is unwilling to give in. Toward the end of the movie, there is a scene in which he has been badly beaten up and still trudges all the way up the pier to go to work. His act of defiance begins to break the power of the union (and therefore the mob). The sequence is among the most powerful ever shot.

In addition to being inspiring, watching the movie when it came out in 1954 told you something that was very real then — and is still real today. That is: Corruption is real, and corruption often involves exploiting the weak or the poor. It takes somebody of enormous courage to stand up to that corruption and insist on defeating it. This is all incredibly relevant today.

I hope you will listen to this week’s episode of Newt’s World. It might lead you look at a few more movies on your own and realize that there’s an extraordinary world of important art, storytelling and commentary out there (which has been growing now for about 120 years, starting with early a silent film and coming up through to where we are today). It’s going to continue to evolve and expand into virtual reality, enhanced reality, interactive games and other formats we haven’t yet imagined.

As much as Republicans complain about modern Hollywood (and vice versa), the Silver Screen is one of America’s great contributions to the world. Our shared artistic achievements are something of which we should be very, very proud.

I hope you will listen this week – and then go watch a great movie.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Goes Full ‘Fleabag’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Westlake Legal Group 5d9992d0200000d3024da815 Phoebe Waller-Bridge Goes Full ‘Fleabag’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’

In fact, she pretty much admitted during her monologue that she is her character: “sexually depraved, foul-mouthed, dangerous.”

She quipped: “I’m not a sex addict because I wrote ‘Fleabag,’ but I did write ‘Killing Eve’ because I’m a psychopath. My most exciting ex-boyfriend wrote nothing, but was both.”

Waller-Bridge noted it’s a “great time to be a psychopath right now; they’re really having a moment.” 

The writer-actor said thankfully women can now “speak openly about their desires without being burned at the stake, which is nice. Love that,” she added. “Back in the day, horny women were to be feared — and now they’re given Emmys.” Waller-Bridge grabbed three Emmys this year for Outstanding Lead Actress and Writing in a Comedy Series, and for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Is the suspect black or white? ‘SNL’ offers laugh-out-loud social commentary on race

When Phoebe Waller Bridge served as “SNL” host, two of the funniest sketches of the night were focused on race: “Mid-Day News” and “Royal Romance.”

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Is the suspect black or white? 'SNL' offers laugh-out-loud social commentary on race

Though the topics “President Trump” and “impeachment” loomed large during host Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” two of the funniest sketches were about something else entirely.

Their common theme: Race relations. 

Musical guest: Taylor Swift shows off her voice with performances of ‘Lover’ and ‘False God’

In “Mid-Day News,” Waller-Bridge and her other news co-anchors (Kenan Thompson, Ego Nwodim, Alex Moffat and Chris Redd) learn that a suspected robber of a gas station is white. As a result, the black anchors high five and cheer on-air, celebrating the fact that they’re “just glad that he ain’t one of us.” The white anchors are aghast over “this petty game,” until they find out that a man assaulted someone for stepping on his Air Jordans. “That’s black, for sure,” says Moffat, who proceeds to dab.

The WANU news reading of crime stories becomes an intra-office battle of black v. white, with perp descriptions that subvert expectations of race, and reactions (particularly from Nwodim) that are laugh-out-loud funny.

In the sketch “Royal Romance,” the premise is race-focused, as well: Before Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, there was another biracial royal couple. Who?

Duchess of Clerkenwell (Waller-Bridge) and Jimmy Jay Robinson, aka blaxploitation street poet Thunderstick (Thompson). Documentary footage includes Thunderstick “knighting” Sir Mix-A-lot.

Kate McKinnon’s Elizabeth Warren Fakes Horror That Billionaires Don’t Like Her On ‘SNL’

Westlake Legal Group 5d998999210000b103aa755f Kate McKinnon’s Elizabeth Warren Fakes Horror That Billionaires Don’t Like Her On ‘SNL’

Kate McKinnon turned on her most charming Elizabeth Warren for an appearance by her inner senator and Democratic presidential candidate on “Weekend Update.”

“Warren” was so very upset — not — when informed by host Colin Jost that big-money donors would rather back Donald Trump.

“You’re kidding me,” she said in mock horror on the “Saturday Night Live” segment. “What? The billionaires don’t like me? Oh no!”

She added: “I’m going to tell them the same thing my grandson told me when he took me to ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ — ’This ain’t for you.’”

Then again, McKinnon said snidely, “taking big checks from Wall Street worked out great for the last lady running for president.”

Asked about two right-wing conspiracy theorists’ report that she had a paid bondage relationship with a 20-something Marine, McKinnon smiled and said sarcastically: “That’s Elizabeth’s Warren’s vibe for sure.” But “if you think I’m in a room with a veteran and I don’t immediately thank him for his service and then make sure he’s getting his VA benefits, you’re insane,” McKinnon added.

Winners and losers from Week 6 in college football are led by Michigan

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Winners and losers from Week 6 in college football are led by Michigan

SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports’ Paul Myerberg provides his opinion of the top three programs in the history of college football. USA TODAY

We should take the game tape from Michigan’s 10-3 win against Iowa and bury it deep underground, not for the purposes of creating a time capsule for the future but for the opposite: so that no one person anywhere, at any time, will be able to watch it again. 

Iowa ran the ball 30 times and gained a yard. Quarterback Nate Stanley was credited with minus-65 rushing yards. (Allowing eight sacks will hurt the per-carry average.) The Hawkeyes turned it over four times, three via interceptions.

Michigan gained 267 yards of offense. About a fifth of that total came on a single play in the first quarter, in quarterback Shea Patterson’s 51-yard completion to wide receiver Nico Collins that preceded the game’s only touchdown. Patterson ended with 14 completions in 26 attempts for 147 yards and an interception, marking his third Big Ten game in as many tries with a turnover and the second time in three weeks the Michigan passing game has looked merely average, if not far worse.

In all, the two teams combined for 528 yards of offense across 131 plays, which is about 100 yards fewer than Oklahoma has averaged per game on half as many snaps. Purists — otherwise known as Michigan fans, in this case — will point to defensive excellence and expound on the beauty of an October contest where the Wolverines have more takeaways than third-down conversions. That’s a stretch.

Michigan is still one of college football’s big winners on Saturday, since the simple victory itself extends the Wolverines’ hopes for the College Football Playoff for another week. Yes, beating Iowa 10-3 is great since it outweighs the alternative. Iowa is one of the big losers, though the Hawkeyes remain very much in the chase for the Big Ten West title.

WINNING UGLY: No. 18 Michigan gets needed defeat of No. 14 Iowa

TRICK PLAY: Texas scores on throwback pass to offensive lineman

Week 6 observations: College football is often random, so don’t write off Auburn just yet

But only a head-in-the-sand optimist would think Saturday’s performance and result changes anything. What about Saturday makes you think Michigan is capable of beating Penn State, Notre Dame or Ohio State? The Wolverines’ Playoff hopes are still alive, technically, in the same way the average American citizen is still technically alive in the race to be president. But the odds are increasingly against it.

Here are the rest of Saturday’s winners and losers in college football:

WINNERS

Penn State

It’s time to consider James Franklin and the Nittany Lions as: one, a really good and balanced team already exceeding national expectations behind a polished underclassman quarterback and an aggressive defense; and two, as what seems very much to be the biggest threat to Ohio State’s reign in the Big Ten. The balance was on display in Saturday’s 35-7 win against Purdue, which saw the offense surge out to a 28-7 halftime lead and the defense hold the undermanned Boilermakers to 104 yards, including minus-19 on the ground. From here, Penn State will face three opponents in a row currently ranked in the Top 25. Franklin’s team seems up for the challenge.

LIONS ROAR: Penn State defense dominates in defeat of Purdue

Florida

The Gators will remain among the upper crust of the SEC and the entire Bowl Subdivision after a pseudo-impressive 24-13 win against previously undefeated Auburn. In itself, beating Auburn is an impressive feat for the Gators, who before Saturday had to point to a season-opening win against Miami (Fla.) as the team’s most noteworthy achievement. This is a nice resume-builder for Florida and second-year coach Dan Mullen. But the Gators need to improve upon Saturday’s overall performance before being anointed as a team actually capable of beating those national powers who come next week will co-populate the top of the Amway Coaches Poll — say, one of Alabama, Georgia, LSU or Clemson.

Iowa State

It’s a credit to coach Matt Campbell that the Cyclones have rebounded superbly from two narrow, single-possession losses. That may not be strong enough: Iowa State has two losses, against Iowa and Baylor, decided by as little as a single play. (Last weekend’s loss to the Bears on the road came on a field goal with 21 seconds left in the fourth quarter.) On Saturday, the Cyclones rebounded with a 49-24 win against TCU that featured another strong performance from quarterback Brock Purdy, who threw for 247 yards and ran for another 102 with a combined four touchdowns. Iowa State is now 3-2 heading into road games against West Virginia and Texas Tech. 

Tulane

The Green Wave moved to 4-1 after an impressive 42-33 win again Army, with the lone loss coming in a fairly competitive effort at Auburn on Sept. 8. As a program, Tulane has been growing into an American Athletic Conference contender since hiring Willie Fritz before the 2016 season. After winning four games in his debut and five games in 2017, Fritz led Tulane to seven wins and a bowl berth last season and has the Green Wave poised to make a dark-horse charge for the Top 25 in October and November.

Charlie Strong

Strong has found a home on the losers’ portion of our weekly rundown amid South Florida’s continued inability to do what Strong was initially hired to do: win football games, namely. So in the effort of fairness, let’s promote the Bulls and their embattled head coach after Saturday’s 48-22 win against Connecticut, the program’s first win against a member of the Bowl Subdivision since Oct. 20, 2018. (That win also came against the Huskies.)

Navy

The Midshipmen took a step toward reclaiming the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy with a 34-25 win against rival Air Force, with the go-ahead score coming via a short touchdown run by quarterback Malcolm Perry with 22 seconds remaining. (The defense added a meaningless touchdown as time expired.) Navy is officially back to contender status under coach Ken Niumatalolo, whose otherwise impressive tenure ran aground last season but has returned to form with three wins in four tries to open the season. The Midshipmen’s lone loss is to Memphis, which is still unbeaten.

SMU

This is turning into a magical season for SMU, which was already 5-0 and knocking on the door of the Coaches Poll before pulling off Saturday’s small miracle: Down 30-9 to Tulsa entering the fourth quarter, the Mustangs rallied to force overtime, survived the second overtime after the Golden Hurricane missed a field goal to win and then won 43-37 on an outstanding touchdown grab in the bottom of the third frame.

Arizona

Guess which team tops the Pac-12 South Division. (Obviously, the answer is “Arizona.”) Yes, it’s Arizona, which moved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in league play after an exciting 35-30 win at Colorado, which has lost two of its past three. The strong start is a bit unexpected given the Wildcats’ documented struggles last season, the program’s first under former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin. The win against the Buffaloes featured a terrific performance from quarterback Khalil Tate, who threw for 404 yards and three touchdowns after missing last week’s win against UCLA.

Nebraska

It hasn’t always been pretty — in fact, the 13-10 win against Northwestern on Saturday afternoon was downright ugly, if excused slightly by injuries plaguing both offenses. Still, it’s worth mentioning this: Nebraska is 8-4 since the midpoint of last season after dropping 11 of its previous 12 games. 

LOSERS

Boston College

The defense has been as bad as advertised. Already, the Eagles’ porous defense has given up 567 yards in losing 48-24 at home to Kansas — repeat: losing 48-24 at home to Kansas — and, on Saturday, 664 yards in losing 41-39 at Louisville. On the other hand, the offense has been good: Boston College gained 563 yards against the Cardinals, for example, evenly split between the run and pass. Nonetheless, losing to rebuilding Louisville drops the Eagles to 3-3 heading into a second-half slate that includes Clemson and Notre Dame, leaving seventh-year coach Steve Addazio under pressure to deliver another bowl bid under adverse circumstances. 

Illinois

Speaking of coaches under pressure: Lovie Smith is now 11-30 across three-plus seasons after his team’s latest setback, a 40-17 loss at Minnesota that saw Illinois barely put up a fight after taking a 7-3 lead into the second quarter. Minnesota put together five touchdown drives spanning 65 or more yards and gained 332 yards on the ground, marking the second game in a row Illinois’ spectacularly awful defense has given up 300-plus yards rushing.

Miami (Fla.) and Virginia Tech

Nobody’s a winner. Not Miami, which fell to 2-3 in Manny Diaz’s first season after a furious comeback fell a touchdown short. Not even Virginia Tech, despite the 42-35 win that helps overwrite some of the foul taste still lingering from last week’s historically bad loss at home to Duke. But here’s the thing: Tech led 28-0 with a play left in the first half thanks to three short-field touchdown drives aided by Miami turnovers, and ended up averaging just 5.4 yards per play while allowing the Hurricanes to pass for 469 yards. The takeaway might be that these are two mediocre-to-worse teams. Shocking, I know.

Tennessee

Tennessee actually held the lead against Georgia for a sliver of Saturday night — about four minutes of football time, give or take. That this is something you take away from another loss, this time by 29 points, makes a pretty strong statement about the sour state of Tennessee football. Hey, did the Volunteers make Georgia sweat? Yeah, for a minute or two. The rest of the evening was a parade of Georgia highlights and Tennessee pratfalls, as expected. Here are the Power Five teams with just one win: Georgia Tech, Rutgers, Purdue, Northwestern, Vanderbilt and Tennessee.

Pro-Trump comedian Terrence K. Williams says Twitter sent him ‘hateful conduct warning’ on day of White House visit

Westlake Legal Group williams Pro-Trump comedian Terrence K. Williams says Twitter sent him 'hateful conduct warning' on day of White House visit fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/entertainment/genres/comedy fox news fnc/entertainment fnc Brie Stimson article 2e196b23-116d-5587-a5e7-c9ad7a394249

A conservative comedian lashed out on Twitter on Friday, saying the company sent him a “hateful conduct warning,” which could affect his ability to tweet, on the same day he was to visit the White House for the Young Black Leadership Summit.

“People want to take my account down because I said Schiff Should Resign, called out AOC & I support Pres @realDonaldTrump,” Terrence K. Williams, a vocal Trump supporter, told his more than 600,000 followers, asking them to retweet a hashtag to protect his account.

“This is outrageous,” he wrote. “The day that I go to the White House is the day that they notify me that my account may be in possible violations of hateful conduct.  … None of my conduct is hateful. I am a comedian, a conservative Trump-supporting comedian and they want to take me down because people have jumped on the Trump train after watching my content.”

“I am a comedian, a conservative Trump-supporting comedian and they want to take me down because people have jumped on the Trump train after watching my content.”

— Terrence K. Williams

The message from Twitter did not prevent Williams from attending the White House event and meeting President Trump, as Williams documented in another Twitter post.

“I MET PRESIDENT TRUMP TODAY!,” the comedian wrote Friday.

“Growing up I went from foster house to foster house & i never thought I would be at the White House… let alone speak on the same stage with Pres @realDonaldTrump a man that loves the black community”

TRUMP, OMAR CLASH OVER VIDEO OF ‘SQUAD’ MEMBER DANCING AS SHE SAYS ‘LIES’ PUT LIFE AT RISK

One of the tweets flagged by Twitter involved Williams saying Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., needs to resign and asserting that Schiff helped write the whistleblower’s complaint about a Trump phone call with the president of Ukraine.

Another tweet that was flagged said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t condemn the idea of eating babies after a demonstrator suggested people should eat babies to combat climate change at one of her town halls.

A political group that supports Trump later admitted they staged the demonstration, and Ocasio-Cortez said she deliberately tries to avoid escalating confrontations when she faces hecklers at public events.

It’s not clear what part of the tweets Twitter took issue with.

Twitter said in its message to Williams, “We are writing to inform you that certain content on your Twitter account  … has been flagged for possible violations of Twitter’s hateful conduct policy and/or laws of USA.”

Twitter added that if the flagged content isn’t in violation of its policy, it may still restrict Williams’ account.

Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy says in part: “You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.”

In April 2018, Williams spoke out after Facebook suspended his account.

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close 'SNL': Taylor Swift shows off her voice with performances of 'Lover' and 'False God'

Taylor Swift used her performances on “Saturday Night Live” to showcase her voice. And her numerous green articles of clothing.

The pop star served as musical guest for the second episode of the season, which meant she got to play two songs.

First up: “Lover.” After she had a much flashier rendition of the title track of her new album at the VMAs, Swift sat solo at the piano for the song on Saturday. The singer was decked out in a green turtleneck, green pants, green earrings, green nail polish and at a green piano with a green floor and green walls to look like a scene out of her kaleidoscopic “Lover” music video. Sheet music appeared as if it were frozen midair while Swift tickled the ivories and sang her romantic tune, smiling while cooing lines like “I take this magnetic force to be mine, lover.”

She ended the song with a huge grin and a little, celebratory shimmy from her (green) piano bench.

Song No. 2: “False God.” Swift’s live debut of the song was vibey, with a saxophonist, drummer and background singers. Swift and her voice were front and center, though, as she sang and snaked her mic-free arm while wearing black sequined pants and an oversized black blazer. All around her, bare lightbulbs shone and smoke rose from the floor.

The stripped-down songs had Twitter buzzing: The hashtag #TaylorOnSNL continued to trend even after “SNL” ended.
