Live long and prosper … Actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83 … Rest in eternal peace.
Leonard Nimoy, the actor that will forever be known for his role as Mr. Spock, the half human, half Vulcan first officer of the Starship USS Enterprise has died at age 83. Nimoy died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles, California. According to his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed Nimoy’s death and said it was a result of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD. The actor tweeted on Jan. 14, 2014, that he had lung disease. Nimoy had just recently been hospitalized. Sadly, he has passed.
As Captain James T. Kirk, William Shatner, stated at the conclusion of Star Trek – The Wrath of Khan when he emotionally eulogized Mr. Spock, “Of my friend I can only say this, of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most human”.
Leonard Nimoy, 1931–2015, Rest in Peace
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Mr. Nimoy announced that he had the disease last year, attributing it to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.
Yet he also acknowledged ambivalence about being tethered to the character, expressing it most plainly in the titles of two autobiographies: “I Am Not Spock,” published in 1977, and “I Am Spock,” published in 1995.
In the first, he wrote, “In Spock, I finally found the best of both worlds: to be widely accepted in public approval and yet be able to continue to play the insulated alien through the Vulcan character.”
“Star Trek,” which had its premiere on NBC on Sept. 8, 1966, made Mr. Nimoy a star. Gene Roddenberry, the creator of the franchise, called him “the conscience of ‘Star Trek’ ” — an often earnest, sometimes campy show that employed the distant future (as well as some primitive special effects by today’s standards) to take on social issues of the 1960s.
On a personal note, although I am not a Trekky, but I loved the original Star Trek series. Which is quite sad, because now with Leonard Nimoy’s passing, he has joined fellow Star Trek actors DeForest Kelley (Dr. “Bone” Mcoy) and James Doohan, (Scotty) in heaven.
Leonard Simon Nimoy was born in Boston; his parents were Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine, and the language at home was Yiddish. He developed an interest in acting at an early age, first appearing on stage at 8 in a production of “Hansel and Gretel.” He took drama classes for a while at Boston College, and after leaving home to pursue his career in Hollywood, he landed his first lead role in the 1952 film “Kid Monk Baroni.”
After serving in the Army from 1953-55, he appeared in small roles in a few films, but mostly found roles in TV series, appearing in episodes of “Dragnet,” “Sea Hunt,” “Bonanza,” “Wagon Train,” “Rawhide,” “The Twilight Zone,” “The Untouchables,” “The Outer Limits,” “The Virginian,” “Get Smart” and “Gunsmoke” before rising to fame in “Star Trek.”
Most recently, he recurred on Fox sci-fi series “Fringe” as maniacal, genius professor William Bell, and he voiced Spock for a 2012 episode of “The Big Bang Theory.”
In addition to his work on “In Search Of…,” Nimoy lent his resonant, intelligent voice to a variety of films, TV projects and documentaries, including A&E docu series “Ancient Mysteries.”
The two videos from the Star Trek movie, The Wrath of Khan now take even more importance that Leonard Nimoy has now passed. Who could forget in 1982 when Mr. Spock died saving the USS Enterprise and its crew, “The needs of the many, out way the needs of the few. Or the One”.

Power Rangers actor Ricardo Medina, 36, was arrested in Los Angeles County, in California, on Saturday afternoon for allegedly stabbing his roommate to death with a sword.
The incident occurred at around 4 p.m. after Medina had an apparent altercation with 36-year-old Joshua Sutter, who entered Medina’s room after an earlier argument. Medina grabbed a sword by his door and struck Sutter in the abdomen with one fatal stab, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Detectives have confirmed that Medina played a red Power Ranger on television, Sheriff’s Deputy Amber Smith told the Los Angeles Times. According to IMDb, he portrayed the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger on the “Power Rangers Wild Force” series in 2002 and voiced the character Deker on “Power Rangers Samurai” in 2012-13, among other acting roles.
Medina’s agent, Gar Lester, told The Times that it was difficult for him to believe the allegations against Medina are true.
“He’s been my friend and client for 12 years and he’s a great guy,” Lester said Sunday. “He’s great to his dog, he’s great to his people. He’s really a super person.”
Daily Commentary – Monday, February 2, 2015 – Bobbi Kristina Brown Found Unresponsive in Bath Tub Saturday Morning
- Eerie similarity to her mother Whitney Houston. Bobbi Kristina Brown was taken to the hospital where reports are she is breathing with the help of a ventilator
Daughter of Late Whitney Houston & Singer Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown Found Unresponsive in Tub at Home in Roswell, GA (Update: Family Say Her Condition ‘Doesn’t Look Good’)
Hmm, sounds very hauntingly familiar …
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, was found at her home in the tub full of water unresponsive in Roswell, Georgia. The 21 year old Brown was found by her husband, Nick Gordan, and a friend in the home in the Ellard subdivision in Roswell. WSB-TV in Atlanta is reporting that Brown’s husband and a friend started CPR until the police took over life-saving measures until rescue crews arrived. The 21 year old Bobbi Kristina Brown was taken to North Fulton Hospital. The incident remains under investigation by the police.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive today in a home in Roswell, Georgia, police say.
Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her in a tub in the home in the Ellard subdivision and started CPR, police said.
When Roswell police officers arrived at 10:25 a.m., she was still unresponsive and they took over life-saving measures until rescue personnel arrived.
This incident comes less than two weeks before the third anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death. Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s mother, was found unresponsive in a tub and died nearly three years ago in California.
Brown “was not breathing” when her husband and a friend found her around 10:25 a.m. at a home in a Roswell subdivision, police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said.
“They called 911, started CPR on her, and police arrived first,” the spokeswoman added. “We took over the lifesaving measures until the fire/rescue and an ambulance arrived.”
Brown was then transported to Roswell’s North Fulton Hospital, where she was breathing, according to Holland.
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was reportedly placed in a medically induced coma due to swelling of the brain after being found unconscious in a bathtub in her home in Roswell, Ga. on Saturday morning.
The 21-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where doctors stabilized her breathing. She was in the intensive care unit at North Fulton Hospital before being induced.
The odds of recovery look grim for Bobbi Kristina Brown, one day after the daughter of music legends Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unconscious face down in a bathtub by her husband.
The 21-year-old was last reported in stable condition in a medical induced coma, but sources close to the family told TMZ that her brain function has ‘significantly diminished’.
‘It doesn’t look good,’ another source told Entertainment Tonight.
That same source revealed to the TV show that it’s ‘no coincidence’ that Bobbi Kristina was found in such tragically similar circumstances as her mother, who was died in a bathtub from an ‘accidental’ drug overdose almost exactly three years ago. Since then Bobbi Kristina’s troubles have been ‘a lot deeper than everyone can see’.
‘We don’t think Bobbi Kristina is going to pull through,’ a source told Hollywood Life.
Michael Moore Still Seeking Attention for Clint Eastwood’s 10 Year Old Comments That He Would “Kill” Him if He Ever Showed Up at His House With a Camera …. Well Michael Moore, Do You Feel Lucky?
GO AHEAD MICHAEL MOORE, MAKE OUR DAY …
Liberal film maker Michael Moore is still trying to make mileage off something that Clint Eastwood said to him 10 years ago. The comments, supposedly made in jest at the National Board of Review awards dinner when Clint Eastwood allegedly told filmmaker Michael Moore he would “kill” him if he ever showed up at his house with a camera. However, Moore seems to have taken the threat somewhat serious to this day. Note to Michael Moore, you are still around making ridiculous, ignorant comments so you must have heeded Clint’s warning. By the way, Clint did not threaten you, he warned you that if you ever showed up at his home with a camera, well punk, do you feel lucky?
Ten years ago this past week, Clint Eastwood stood in front of the National Board of Review awards dinner and announced to me and to the crowd that he would “kill” me if I ever came to his house with my camera for an interview.
“I’ll kill you,” he declared.
The crowd laughed nervously. As for me, having just experienced a half-dozen assaults in the previous year from crazies upset at ‘Fahrenheit 9/11? and my anti-war Oscar speech, plus the attempt by a right wing extremist to blow up my house (he was caught in time and went to prison), I was a bit stunned to hear Eastwood, out of the blue, make such a violent statement. But I instantly decided he was just trying to be funny, so I laughed the same nervous laugh everyone else did. Clint, though, didn’t seem to like all that laughter.
“I mean it,” he barked, and the audience grew more quiet. “I’ll shoot you.”
Hey Michael Moore, how about some cheese with that whine … Maybe Clint East Wood meant he would kill you at the box office?
Uber-Liberal Bill Maher Calls American Sniper Chris Kyle a “Psychopath Patriot” on HBO’s ‘Real Time’
I GUESS LIBERAL BILL MAHER HAS BEEN GETTING TOO MUCH HATE MAIL FROM THE FAR LEFT TO TALK GOOD ABOUT AN AMERICAN HERO WHO KILLED RADICAL ISLAMISTS …
Bill Maher calls American hero Chris Kyle a “Psychopath Patriot”. The only redeeming quality of far-Left comedian Bill Maher was that he got terrorism, radical Islam and the Islamo-fascist killers who would sooner cut some ones head off than say hello. Or at least we thought. During the latest episode of HBO’s ‘Real Time,’ Bill Maher came out in his condescending tone, “The Hurt Locker made 17 million because it was a little ambiguous and thoughtful, and this one [the movie America Sniper] is just American hero, he’s a ‘Psychopath Patriot’ and we love him” Why, because that’s what liberals do, they mock American heroes because they hate the military. Even though Maher has ripped radical Islam in the past, to the horror of the radical LEFT, it would appear that Maher cannot support an actual American hero he made a difference in killing murderous Islamists.
Maher quoted Chris Kyle stating, “I hate the damn savages” and I love killing bad guys”. Maher then said, that doesn’t seem like a Christian thing to say. Wow really, an atheist like Maher is going to judge an individual it was to be a sniper, to kill the enemy, in order to protect Americans. Welcome to the hateful liberal mindset. Left Howie Dean tried to pile on and make a comparison that there is a lot of anger in the country and the people going to see the movie are angry Tea Party folk. Really Howie? This from Howie “I have a scream” Dean, you seem like a little hate-filled man yourself. Did we also say clueless? American Sniper is #1 at the box office again this week, bringing in over $200 million. Wow Howie, who knew there were that many Tea Party people out there. You better hope not.
This guy (the late Chris Kyle) basically says, ‘I’m going to fight on your side. I bet you if you looked at the cross-section of the tea party and people who see this movie there’s a lot of intersection.”
But a funny thing happened after Maher made is mocking and snarly comments regarding Chris Kyle, his guets turned against him. Two of Maher’s guests made the case that there is nuance in the movie, and that it’s not just about “killing savages.” They stated, it’s about the horror of war, the moral struggles a sniper faces and the battle with PTSD that rages on the home front.
“I can’t believe you came away with that impression of the film,” Mr. Stephens said to Mr. Maher. “What I saw was a movie that treats what veterans and soldiers go through in way that was subtle. It was not just about war it was about PTSD. It’s about what the wives of soldiers go through. And by the way the savages he’s talking about aren’t ordinary Iraqis, the savages are al Qaeda killers who put drills into children to enforce orders.”
Comedian Bill Burr backed up Mr. Stephens, telling Mr. Maher “You can’t sum up a man by one quote taken out of context.”
Bill Maher, calls Chris Kyle, American Sniper, a ‘Psychopath Patriot’
VIDEO – (content warning: strong language)
Is “American Sniper” just a mindless, pro-war action movie with a “psychopath” hero?
That’s what one liberal claimed — but he was quickly contradicted by his own guests.
Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” came out swinging against the blockbuster “American Sniper” on his show Friday night, complaining that the film doesn’t show any nuance and merely presents sniper Chris Kyle as an American hero.
“‘He’s a psychopath patriot and we love him,’” Maher said mockingly of the thousands of Americans who flocked to see the film.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder if the only thing that separated Bill Maher from be beheaded by a savage radical Islamist was a sniper’s bullet if he would consider that sniper a “Psychopath Patriot”?

Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Barack Obama & Eric Holder for Failing to Attend Paris March: “Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”
”Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”
From The Daily Show, Jon Stewart rips President Barack Obama for not attending the ‘Unity March’ in Paris, France on Sunday as world leader came together for freedom and liberty and against radical Islam. Stewart mocked Obama saying, how could Obama not be there, look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized to.” One would think that alone would have had Obama running to the event.
“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”
(The money comments begin around the 4:15 minute mark of the video)
Stewart, visibly perplexed, questioned how the leader of the free world failed to participate in the march.
“How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”
“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”
Stewart then slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for not representing the U.S. at the march, even though he was in Paris as it took place.
“What the f***?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, ‘eh’?”
“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”
Comedian Jay Leno Says Hillary Clinton Seems Very Slow and Has Lost Her Fire on ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher
HILLARY CLINTON HAS LOST THE FIRE …
LEFTY comedian Jay Leno stated on HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, I don’t see the fire and she seems to be very slow making reference to Hillary Clinton. Leno than asked what was the age between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren, 15 years? Nope, 18 months. Isn’t it interesting that it is the LEFT, not the RIGHT that is making Hillary’s age an issue. Trust me, Republicans have enough material to go after the Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. The GOP does not need to reference her age, all they need to do is remind Americans of her miserable record and her foreign policy forever linked to Obama. How did that Hillary Russian reset turn out or Benghazi. In the end, can anyone even name one of her accomplishments, come one anyone? But has Ms. Clinton would say, “what different does it make?”
Since most of these attacks come from the LEFT, it seems like this is their way to sabotage Hillary’s run, even though she is way out ahead in the polls because of same recognition. Leno’s comments sounds an awful lot like the meme of Hillary does not have that new car smell and and Barack Obama making the reference that the American people, “you know, they’re going to want that new car smell” and “one that doesn’t have as much mileage as me.”
Comedian Jay Leno says he likes presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but she just seems so old.
Speaking of Clinton on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Leno commented, “I don’t see the fire.”
“Her and Elizabeth Warren are almost the same age,” Leno said, comparing Hillary to the Massachusetts senator beloved by the left wing of the Democratic Party. “And I see Elizabeth Warren come out — ‘boom’ — throwing punches. ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom.’”
“And I like her,” Leno continued, speaking of Hillary. “But she seems to be sort of, she seems very slow and very — I don’t see that fire, you know, that fire that I used to see, that I see in Elizabeth Warren. Because I say to people, ‘how much younger is Elizabeth Warren than Hillary?’ And people go, ‘oh, 15 years.’ No! 18 months.”
Legal Insurrection nails the 2016 Democrat Dilemma, Hillary Clinton “very old, slow” and lacking that new car smell, while Elizabeth Warren is unelectable.
