I WOULD SAY THIS IS SHOCKING BUT IT HAS BECOME THE NORM FROM THE VILE AND HATEFUL LEFT …
Actor Johnny Depp referenced assassinating Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury, England during Cineramageddon. Depp said, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” REALLY? And we wonder why lunatics have attempted to assassinate Republican law makers why practicing baseball? REALLY? Maybe American law enforcement and the Secret Service need to pay Mr. Depp a visit when he returns home. This over the top crap of threats to Trump and those on the Right from the lunatic LEFT have got to end. Some one needs to be made an example of and prosecuted. This is not free speech and to hide behind the cowardice that it is a joke, is a joke.
“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said, to cheers from the crowd.
“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked in reference to the death of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865.
“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time,” he added.
Judge Steve T. O’Neill Declares Mistrial in Bill Cosby Sex-Assault Trial … Prosecutor Steele Said He Will Retry Cosby
THIS WAS EXPECTED AS THE JURY CONTINUES TO BE DEADLOCKED, DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY …
The judge in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial has declared a mistrial. The jury could not reach a decision and as they have been for days. In their sixth day of deliberations, jurors sent word to Judge Steve T. O’Neill that they could not reach a unanimous verdict and the are “hopelessly deadlocked.” Afterwards, prosecutor Kevin Steele announced in court that he will retry Cosby. Good luck, because this was not a strong case. There is a reason why this jury was hopelessly deadlocked. However, this is hardly a victory for Bill Cosby. His image is forever tarnished and whether he was found guilty or not in this case, there are too may other women who have come forward for innocence to be declared. This might be one of these moments to fade into anonymity and not gloat.
A Pennsylvania judge declared a mistrial Saturday after a jury was “hopelessly deadlocked” on sexual-assault charges against Bill Cosby, the comic legend whose legacy as a promoter of wholesome values has been tarnished by a years-long sex and drugging scandal.
As the mistrial was declared, Cosby sat at the defense table with his chin held high, a flat, blank look on his face. Across the well of the courtroom, jurors stood one-by-one in the jury box and said, “Yes,” as the judge asked whether each whether they agreed that the jury is “hopelessly deadlocked.”
The jurors answered without hesitation, but several slumped forward in their chairs, elbows on their knees and fingers knit, looks of frustration on their faces.
After the questioning was done, the entertainer sat back in his chair, holding a slender cane that has been with him inside the courtroom each day to his chest. Cosby’s family was not in the courtroom to hear the judge’s decision.
The jury filed out almost within arm’s reach of Andrea Constand, Cosby’s accuser. She stood respectfully, with a strained smile on her face. Afterwards, prosecutor Kevin Steele announced in court that he will retry Cosby.
UPDATE I: Civil Lawsuit awaits.
Although Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial ended in a mistrial on Saturday, his legal problems persist as he faces assault and defamation claims in civil lawsuits, where the bar for evidence is lower than in criminal cases.
In civil lawsuits in the United States, plaintiffs need only show that the weight of evidence is on their side, meaning they have information to tip the scales above 50 percent in their favor, as opposed to criminal cases in which prosecutors must prove claims beyond a reasonable doubt.
He accused Allred, a high-profile women’s rights attorney from Los Angeles, of conspiring against Cosby.
“For all those attorneys who conspired – like Gloria Allred – tell them to go back to law school and take another class,” he said.
Allred, who was not the principal attorney for plaintiff Andrea Constand, held a press conference outside the courthouse with other Cosby accusers.
YOU WOULD NEVER WANT THIS DUDE IN YOUR FOX HOLE …
Following the Bill Maher “house ni**er” comment controversy from HBO’s “Real Time” show, Sen. Al Franken has now canceled his appearance.. It wasn’t too long ago that Sen. Franken (D-MN) said he would stand behind liberal comedian Kathy Griffin and appear with her after her ill-fate Trump decapitated head stunt. Guess what, Franken flip-flopped on his words and has since canceled his appearance with Griffin too. This is kind of interesting seeing that Franken got his fame in life from being a former SNL cast member. If there is anyone who would have stood behind fellow comedians, one would have thought it would have been Stuart Smalley. Maher has since apologized for using the term. But the damage has been dome. Because a liberal politician pandering and schilling a book has no room for context of words.
It is rather interesting to see libs attack their own. I guess its a good think Richard Pryor is no longer able to do his act, or Eddie Murphy for that fact. Who finds it fascinating that the Democrat party had no problem electing for year, Sen. Robert Byrd from West Virginia, a former member of the KKK and Exalted Cyclops, yet what Maher said is just completely wrong?
A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) confirmed to HuffPost that the senator is canceling his appearance on the upcoming episode of “Real Time” in the wake of host Bill Maher’s use of a racial slur on-air.
“Senator Franken believes that what Bill Maher said was inappropriate and offensive, which is why he made the decision not to appear on the next episode of ‘Real Time,’” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “He was glad to see Bill, who the Senator considers to be a good friend, apologize and express sincere regret for his comment.”
Last Friday, Maher joked that he was a “house n****r” while in conversation with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who invited Maher to “work in the fields” of his represented state. Maher later called his use of the term “offensive.”
The backlash was strong enough for Maher to apologize ? something he’s known for rarely doing ? and for HBO to confirm that the network currently has no plans to fire him.
Actor Tim Allen Says Being a Conservative in Hollywood is like Living in 1930′s Nazi Germany (VIDEO)
ISN’T IT IRONIC, SEEING THAT IT’S THE LEFT THAT ALWAYS CALLS THE RIGHT, NAZI’S …

Tim Allen says that living in Hollywood right now is akin to Nazi Germany.

ROCK ‘N ROLL ICON CHUCK BERRY HAS PASSED AWAY …
Chuck Berry, one of the pioneer’s and icons of Rock n’ Roll music has passed away at the age of 90. The music legend was best known for “Johnny B. Goode,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Maybellene” and “My Ding-a-Ling” to name just a few. In 1986 Chuck Berry became one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 1985 he also received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. However, better than words to describe Chuck Berry, it is better to just play his music.
Johnny B. Goode
Chuck Berry, the singer, songwriter and guitar great who practically defined rock music with his impeccably twangy hits “Maybellene,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Memphis,” “My Ding-a-Ling” and “Sweet Little Sixteen,” has died. He was 90.
The singer/songwriter, whose classic “Johnny B. Goode” was chosen by Carl Sagan to be included on the golden record of Earth Sounds and Music launched with Voyager in 1977, died Saturday afternoon, St. Charles County Police Department confirmed. The cause of death was not revealed.
While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they knew themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.
His guitar lines wired the lean twang of country and the bite of the blues into phrases with both a streamlined trajectory and a long memory. And tucked into the lighthearted, telegraphic narratives that he sang with such clear enunciation was a sly defiance, upending convention to claim the pleasures of the moment.

In “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “You Can’t Catch Me” and other songs, Mr. Berry invented rock as a music of teenage wishes fulfilled and good times (even with cops in pursuit). In “Promised Land,” “Too Much Monkey Business” and “Brown Eyed Handsome Man,” he celebrated and satirized America’s opportunities and class tensions. His rock ’n’ roll was a music of joyful lusts, laughed-off tensions and gleefully shattered icons.
Roll Over Beethoven – Chuck Berry Live
Mr. Berry was already well past his teens when he wrote mid-1950s manifestoes like “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “School Day.” Born Charles Edward Anderson Berry on Oct. 18, 1926, in St. Louis, he grew up in a segregated, middle-class neighborhood there, soaking up gospel, blues, and rhythm and blues, along with some country music.
He spent three years in reform school after a spree of car thefts and armed robbery. He received a degree in hairdressing and cosmetology and worked for a time as a beautician; he married Themetta Suggs in 1948 and started a family. She survives him, as do four children: Ingrid Berry, Melody Eskridge, Aloha Isa Leigh Berry and Charles Berry Jr.
By the early 1950s, he was playing guitar and singing blues, pop standards and an occasional country tune with local combos. Shortly after joining Sir John’s Trio, led by the pianist Johnnie Johnson, he reshaped the group’s music and took it over.
From the Texas guitarist T-Bone Walker, Mr. Berry picked up a technique of bending two strings at once that he would rough up and turn into a rock ’n’ roll talisman, the Chuck Berry lick, which would in turn be emulated by the Rolling Stones and countless others. He also recognized the popularity of country music and added some hillbilly twang to his guitar lines. Mr. Berry’s hybrid music, along with his charisma and showmanship, drew white as well as black listeners to the Cosmopolitan Club in St. Louis.
