How WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Went from Enemy to Embrace With Some in the Gop

How WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Went from Enemy to Embrace With Some in the Gop
From Capitol Hill to Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, cyber-security is all the buzz this week, thanks to WikiLeaks, a self-described non-profit media organization that publishes leaked documents, news and classified information from anonymous sources. The man behind Wikileaks is Julian Assange and, although he’s been under fierce fire from American political leaders in the recent past, a few are warming up to him — starting with President-elect Trump, who once went so far as to say Assange should face “the death penalty or something” for his crimes.

Who is Julian Assange?

Assange is the Australian leader (and alleged founder) of WikiLeaks.

Rand Paul Gets Sassy With Savannah Guthrie, Offers "a Better Way to Approach" Interviewing Him: Watch Now

Rand Paul would like to be president of the Untied States....and a journalist? The Kentucky senator sure was quick to tell Today's Savannah Guthrie how to do her job when she brought up his changing political stances during an exclusive live interview Wednesday morning. In the tense back-and-forth, the aspiring world leader (and son of Ron Paul) tersely cut Savannah off when she mentioned how his "somewhat unorthodox" viewpoints on foreign aid and Iran as a potential threat had differed through the years. Savannah wouldn't stand for the interruption, though, and after a few tense moments of crosstalk, she said to Rand, "So I just wonder if you've mellowed...

Rand Paul Announces That He's Running For President in 2016

  • Popsugar
Republican Senator Rand Paul announced that he's running for president in 2016, saying, "I am running for president to return our country to the principles of liberty and limited government." The news didn't come as much of a surprise, as he's mentioned running before. Back in December, he tweeted a picture of a Rand Paul 2016 sweatshirt, joking, "Of course, everyone has to be themselves, and I have my own style. I think this will be a popular item this year." The 52-year-old politician (and son of three-time presidential hopeful Ron Paul) was elected to the Us Senate in 2010, and he owned an ophthalmology practice for 18 years. He and his wife, Kelley, have been married for 24 years, and they have three sons, ages 21, 18, and 15. Rand Paul isn't the first to announce that he's running for president in 2016, as Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced his presidential bid last month.

Specialty Box Office: 'Atlas Shrugged III' Sees Soft Start Despite Ron Paul Cameo

The politically charged Atlas Shrugged Part III: Who Is John Galt? got off to a slow start at the U.S. box office despite cameos by former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and a raft of conservative commentators. Opening in 242 theaters in select markets, the movie grossed between $355,000 and $455,000, well behind the $1.7 million debut of Atlas Shrugged: Part I from 299 locations in April 2011. The second film, launching to $1.8 million in October 2012, isn't an apples-to-apples comparison, since it rolled out in more than 1,000 locations. John

Interview – Glenn “Kane” Jacobs talks See No Evil 2

david j. moore talks to Glenn “Kane” Jacobs about See No Evil 2 at the San Diego Comic-Con International…

A WWE superstar, Glenn “Kane” Jacobs has amassed a fan base by portraying a villain people love to hate. He made his crossover into films with the slasher picture See No Evil (2006) from WWE Studios, and his movie career stalled until he made a brief appearance in the spoof MacGruber (2010). He reprised his role as the killer Jacob Goodnight in See No Evil 2 (2014) from WWE Studios and the directing team Jen and Sylvia Soska, and his future in films is up in the air, as he is considering a career in politics (he’s a devout Libertarian supporter of Ron Paul). Whatever is in store for Glenn Jacobs, action and horror fans have more Kane to fear with See No Evil 2.

‘Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?’ Trailer: Who Cares, Here’s Ron Paul

Unless you’re a diehard Libertarian or the ghost of Ayn Rand herself back from the great beyond come to haunt us all in the spookiest of fashions, you probably haven’t spent that much time paying attention to the Atlas Shrugged film trilogy. If you’re suddenly inspired to trek to the theater and explore the role of man’s mind in existence, the third and final installment of the series — which attempts to answer the all-important question of “Who is John Galt?” — has arrived. The first trailer for the aptly titled Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?, directed by James Manera and written by Manera and Harmon Kaslow, promises epic romance, war and all the Ron Paul the silver screen can handle. It’s somewhat of a miracle that the film even exists. After Atlas Shrugged: Part I was a bonafide flop, only managing to bring in lukewarm $4.6 million at the box office, its

The Epic Saga Comes To An End: Watch The Trailer For 'Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?'

The trilogy no one asked for is coming to an end after no one saw it. Try as they might to tap into the general air of political and economic discontent afoot in the U.S., the producers behind the "Atlas Shrugged" series never roused much interest beyond a niche base. The first installment earned a tepid $4.6 million at the box office, and the second took in $3.3 million. And in a move that Ayn Rand herself would likely have frowned upon, a Kickstarter campaign enabled the finale "Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?" A trailer is here to show just where all that money went. Empirically speaking, all that money created very little value. Appearing as poorly acted as the first two films, the finale emphasizes a love story and a vague theme of "choice" amidst a crumbling America and Vaseline smudged camera work. And hey, look! There's Ron Paul!

Casting: Rosario Dawson Joins 'Daredevil,' Alison Brie Learns 'How To Be Single' & More

The cast of the Netflix series of Marvel's "Daredevil" is beginning to take shape and it ... looks like the cast of a TV show. Which isn't a bad thing at all, just an observation, and at least with more recognizable names than whoever those people are on "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." Anyway, Rosario Dawson is joining Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio in the show, with her role poetically described as that of "a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell's Kitchen brings blind attorney Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city." [THR] In case you're one of the five people who care about "Atlas Shrugged III," it will make room for Ron Paul, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Grover Norquist to make appearances, surely because they are integral,

Normcore: Norm MacDonald's Quest to Host 'The Late Late Show'
Norm Macdonald is tilting at windmills, rolling a stone up a hill, trying to get a late-night television talk show. Since it was announced that Craig Ferguson was leaving the Late Late Show, the devilishly sharp comedian — a legendary talk show guest and, frankly, the best-ever SNL Weekend Update anchor — has been lobbying hard for the hosting gig of CBS' post-Letterman, soon to be post-Colbert, late night show. The 50-year-old Macdonald, infamously fired from SNL by NBC executive Don Ohlmeyer in 1998, has made his case on Conan, marshaled the support

Trevor Donovan strips down to help animals, Scream casts for bi-curious female, Brendan Eich’s history of anti-gay donations

A bearded, sexy Trevor Donovan stripped down to boxing attire for a photoshoot to help Helping Homeless Animals, a no-kill shelter. I do notice that the pooches sharing the spotlight with him are anything but homeless. That’s his own chubby dog Tito, and his manager’s German Shepherd Dogbert, two of the most spoiled dogs outside Paris Hilton’s home.

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich didn’t just give to Prop 8, he has a history of donating money to gay hating right wing candidates, from Pat Buchanan to Ron Paul. This man is tainted.

Durex recently put out an ad in it with nine couples for Earth Hour, and all of them were heterosexual. Durex says it’s not that they’re anti-gay, straight people just auditioned better. “Durex is passionate about everybody having great,
