Trump was on Air Force One Thursday when he said he'd told South Carolina's Republican Senator Tim Scott -- the day before -- that there were "bad dudes" on the other side of white supremacist protests.  The Prez doubled down, saying Antifa's actions since then prove he was right

Could the Republican Party Still Dump Trump This July?
First it was his race-based attack on a federal judge. Now, it's Donald Trump's bald politicization of the Orlando terror attack that has his fellow Republicans cringing - and worse. It's been over a month since his last remaining competitors - Ted Cruz and John Kasich - bowed out of the race, and it seems that the majority of the Republican establishment has accepted what seems to be the inevitable: Donald Trump will be the party's nominee in the general election this November.

'Textbook' Racism: Donald Trump's Attacks on Federal Judge Unite Gop from Ryan to Schwarzenegger; Clinton Warns Women Judges Could Be Next
Donald Trump has, finally, all but united the Republican Party - in denunciation of his continued, race-based attacks on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over the civil lawsuits against the candidate's Trump University. "I disavow these comments. I regret those comments that [Trump] made," said House Speaker Paul Ryan during a press conference Tuesday. "Claiming a person can't do their job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment ... it's absolutely unacceptable." And Sen.

Two of Redford's Biggest Box-Office Hits on TCM Tonight

Robert Redford movies: TCM shows 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,' 'The Sting' They don't make movie stars like they used to, back in the days of Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Harry Cohn. That's what nostalgists have been bitching about for the last four or five decades; never mind the fact that movie stars have remained as big as ever despite the demise of the old studio system and the spectacular rise of television more than sixty years ago. This month of January 2015, Turner Classic Movies will be honoring one such post-studio era superstar: Robert Redford. Beginning this Monday evening, January 6, TCM will be presenting 15 Robert Redford movies. Tonight's entries include Redford's two biggest blockbusters, both directed by George Roy Hill and co-starring Paul Newman: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which turned Redford, already in his early 30s, into a major film star to rival Rudolph Valentino,

The First Trailer for Draugar Does Battle with the Dead

Norse mythology is rife with creatures that could easily be featured in their own films. Such is the case with the following short Draugar from director Paul Cotrulia and producer/writer Timothy Scott of Event Films.

So what is a Draugar, you ask? In Viking mythology a draugr is the reanimated corpse of a dead Viking who has supernatural powers of growth, strength and the ability to drive his victims insane. They revel in the suffering of the living as they also envy the living. Draugar is the plural of Draugr, and from what we are gathering, there look to be many of these creatures populating this upcoming film.

Check out the trailer below and keep your eyes on the Event Films Facebook page for announcements regarding when you'll be able to dig on the flick in its entirety!

A panel discussion on CNN’s The Lead examined the impact that Wednesday’s speeches and celebrations surrounding the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement’s march on Washington D.C. When asked why so few Republicans attended the rally and none spoke, the panel displayed a surprising lack of knowledge as to the circumstances. When asked why Sen.

Better than Fast and Furious: ‘Vanishing Point’

Vanishing Point

Directed by Richard C. Sarafian

Written by Guillermo Cabrera Infante from a story outline by Malcom Hart

1971, USA

Belonging to countless late-sixties, early-Seventies American counterculture road films, Vanishing Point quickly became a cult classic of the car-movie genre. Richard Sarafian directed this minimalist chase film, starring Barry Newman as Kowalski, an ex-marine, ex-race car driver and ex-cop behind the wheel of a Dodge Charger – who must deliver the automobile from Colorado to San Francisco in less than 15 hours. After a run-in with highway patrol, a state-wide chase ensues. Along the way, Kowalski is aided by Super Soul – a blind, radio DJ who guides his journey using a police radio scanner. Much like Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider (1969) and Monte Hellman’s Two-Lane Blacktop (1971), Vanishing Point sought to illustrate the tensions between the counterculture and the establishment, and in this case, across four states

Democratic congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch is running a spirited race to replace Sen. Tim Scott (R-sc) who vacated his seat in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district when he was appointed to replace the retiring former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-sc). She faces an uphill battle in the heavily Republican district, but Colbert Busch has a not-so-secret weapon on her side: her brother, Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert.
