Donald Trump Sniffling Is Definitely Coke Because — Why The Fuck Not!?

(Blasting News) – The second Presidential Debate with Donald Trump showed that he was sniffing again, just as he did during the first one, causing others to come out and again suggest that he’s doing cocaine. And recently, when Star Wars‘ Carrie Fisher was live tweeting during the second Presidential Debate, she also tweeted about her experience with coke and that there was no doubt he was using.

The Blasting News opinion piece asks, why this should be so strange? Because, he says that he doesn’t drink or do drugs? Because it would make him look even more immoral than he already does, if it were discovered that he was does cocaine? Why can’t a bump or two before a debate, be any different from taking some ibuprofen to get through it? The guy is on the ropes right now and there’s no doubt, he might also be on the stuff.

America’s ‘Crash Course’ On Nationalism Results In A Creative Rights Fight Over ‘Pepe The Frog’ Meme

(Blasting News) – The current crash course on nationalism in America, is not a figment of anyone’s imagination. It exists in certain manifestations — mostly online — before it spills out into reality and people begin to act on what they’ve learned. If we were to accept that the nationalism is what we’re seeing at the Trump rallies where people have — at the very worst, taken it upon themselves to physically assault minorities and reporters and at the very least, show aggression towards them while their candidate promises a crackdown on the same people; then it is definitely a threat.

While we don’t do politics on this blog — you can go to Survival Journalism for all things political, nationalism falls in the category of what we do talk about which are ideas and philosophies. So, imagine that there was an effective delivery system for that fanaticism which serves to help the nationalistic threat grow? Obviously, Donald Trump’s union with the Alt Right Breitbart itself as the campaign is that system, but within it is the hijacking of a character that’s spent one-half of its life so far, within the comic pages of Boy’s Club and some of its life as a harmless online meme, before it became a symbol of fanatical patriotism within that already effective system. Initially, in one of our op-ed pieces from last month, the threat was seen as one that was growing through the use of Matt Furie’s character ‘Pepe the Frog’ which he wrongly dismissed as just a phase.

Take Hijacking Of ‘Pepe The Frog’ Seriously — It Makes You A Better Human

Since then however, both the publisher of Boy’s Club and the creator of ‘Pepe the Frog’ himself, have started to take some action to get their character back, which is really the only way they’re going to be able to. It should be mentioned however, that the form that nationalism has taken online at least, is via a trolling culture. It’s at this point that those who are against it, have taken it upon themselves to battle with those trolls and now, ‘Pepe the Frog’ is the result of a more “scenic route” of trolling because — as mentioned in the article referred to from last month — apparently, trolls who are no doubt happy to creative a viral prank — perhaps without allegiances — are laughing at the fact that the character has been taken as seriously as it has, as if they pulled the biggest prank in internet meme history.

But as explained, this can no longer be attributed to them if they’re not willing to own racist culture that has taken it, from them. Making what was at first a prank, reality. And so it’s a fine-line if we were to analyze this a bit closer. But that initial momentum-of-the-prank isn’t there anymore. It is now in the hands of those who mean to play Pepe for bad, on both sides. And so the fact that Matt Furie and Fantagraphics are taking some action now —  instead of initially dismissing the hijacking of ‘Pepe the Frog’ as just a phase in nationalism is as we’ve said, the right kind of action to take.

(Inquisitr) – For all loyal but late watchers of Gotham, that Edward Nigma a.k.a. Riddler and Oswald Cobblepott a.k.a. Penguin have met shouldn’t be a secret.

The Bat’s Army

In the first episode of Gotham season 3, the relationship between both characters went into a new phase. One that established them as villainous allies but, puzzle masters in their own right.

Jessie Graff’s Red Carpet Stunt Work At The Emmy’s Is Just One Of Many Feats She’s Pulled This Year

(Inquisitr) – There is no doubt that if you’ve watched enough American Ninja Warrior then you know about Jessie Graff. She’s the only reason I’ve ever watched the thing and her consistent attempts at the course over the past couple of years, have finally paid off for the up-and-coming success of this stunt girl.

Here we look at Jessie Graff’s success, watch her steal the spotlight as she pulls some serious stunt moves on the red carpet in a flowing red dress. And, see what that has to do with her contributions to the designs of a new kind of skirt-short and her support into a interesting new start-up. How can you not be jealous of her success!?

Hillary Clinton Will Need Stand-Up Comedians For Her Presidency

(Inquisitr) – Nothing political here guys, we’re talking about comedy because every President has their own style when they host events at the White House. Especially during the annual dinners, where celebrities and big names come together to let loose. Some of us can remember when George W. Bush had a Bush impersonator at one of his events. Unless I do some research on this one, I’m not sure that back then, many of those events were viewed as much as they were during Obama’s presidency. At the very earliest, we can remember him “killing” with his pre-written stand-up routine from the podium. Much of that footage on YouTube will show just how many views they’ve gotten with many of them going viral. That’s certainly something you can’t say about Bush.

But then there is Hillary. When she becomes president, what is she going to do for those annual dinners? As the source article shows, she’s got every reason to stick with the stand-up comedy routine that Obama made popular. Of course, in an alternate universe, Donald Trump is already the greatest stand-up comedian ever. And every year under his fascist rule, he would be up there making some of the most vile and obscene cut ups, perhaps with Putin and Duterte in the audience. Of course, there wouldn’t be any press except for Breitbart, and it would be broadcast on big mega screens nationwide, on the side of buildings with Trump’s name on them and banners with his face.

‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ Could Get One More Shot With ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

(Inquisitr) – There’s a new Star Trek series due out next May called Discovery, which is the first time the franchise will be back on television in 12-years.

This makes me itch to watch the older series. Not so much the original Star Trek but The Next Generation. Just the other day Nemesis got my attention again, as I hadn’t seen it in over a decade and it seemed to be a much better film, but I also agree that it wasn’t the proper send off for The Next Generation crew.

If we know anything about the pattern of cross-casting in the television and movies series of other show’s actors, then there’s a good chance that Star Trek: Discovery will be another chance for The Next Generation crew to finally get the ending they deserve.

Another Viewing Of ‘Star Trek Nemesis’ Reduces ‘Franchise Fatigue’

(Inquisitr) – Star Trek Nemesis was shown on television over the weekend, which is perhaps the only way one can be forced to watch it since it’s one of the most ignored of the Star Trek movies.

Imagine the years go by without watching it again, caught up with other more interesting “things” only to see it again, finding that you have time to watch it and then find out a few things about the making of, which was not as possible in 2002 as it is today?

It takes that kind of passing of time to find out that things change and, Star Trek Nemesis is a better movie for it.
