    Former President Donald Trump's media company has begun hiring staff for its video streaming platform as it seeks to build a MAGA challenger to mainstream providers such as Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. In recruitment adverts posted on Wednesday, the Trump Media and Technology Group announced it was seeking a content buyer and a development manager to create programming for its TMTG+ service. The service is part of Trump's attempt to build an alternative media ecosystem after being kicked off Facebook and YouTube in the wake of the January 6 violence last year. But his Truth Social challenger to Twitter has struggled to gain purchase since being launched, and has seen downloads plummet. It is still not available on phones running Android software. The advert suggests TMTG+ will offer a wide range of programs - some original and some bought in - much like other existing platforms.  'Trump Media & Technology Group's streaming video on demand service will be a “Big Tent” platform offering broad-based entertainment rooted in free speech,' it says.  'In addition to the social media platform Truth Social,...
    A 'dark money' nonprofit run by one of Black Lives Matter's founders received $2.5million in donations from a Silicon Valley foundation in 2020, new tax filings have revealed. Forms filed last month show that Dignity and Power Now - a Los Angeles-based grassroots agency headed by BLM cofounder Patrisse Cullors - secured $4.2million in donations in 2020, with the bulk of that sum coming from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, a multibillion-dollar fund based in the Bay Area.  The firm, which bills itself as 'a donor-advised community foundation serving the Silicon Valley region,' is one of the largest funds in the country, and received $2.1 billion in contributions in 2020 alone, tax records show.  Moreover, the high-powered fund is linked to some of the biggest names in the Valley, including Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, and Netflix cofounder Reed Hastings, who have all contributed cash to the sizable foundation. Patrice Cullors dark-money nonprofit has obtained $2.5m in donations from a woke Silicon Valley fund whose benefactors include some of tech's richest tycoons  Cullors Dignity & Power Now obtained more than $2.5m from the Silicon...
    A conservative Disneyland worker accused the entertainment giant of stifling non-woke viewpoints among staff - as parents held a protest outside its California headquarters for pushing gender ideology on children.    Hundreds gathered outside Disney's headquarters in Burbank, California with at least one Disneyland worker, known as a 'cast member' speaking out against her employer.  'I've worked for Disney for quite a long time and it has gotten very political and it's gotten very hard to be who you are and it's gotten very hard to be someone who has conservative values,' the woman began. Her role and exact job title haven't been disclosed. 'It's hard to be somebody who believes in the right to choose, who believes that it's okay to stand up for righteousness. Any Disney cast members that are afraid to be bold, afraid to be courageous, stand up! It's okay - you're not alone!' she said to applause. Conservatives held a rally outside Disney's California headquarters in protest of what many critics call the corporation's 'woke' agenda. At least one Disney cast member, above, joined in 'It...
    Caitlyn Jenner has slammed 'woke' gender identities and declared 'I can't even figure it out'. The former Olympic athlete, 72, made the comments after biologically male counsellors were allowed to sleep in the same cabins as fifth-grade girls attending California's Los Alamitos School District.  Jenner, who herself was born biologically male and underwent her transition in 2015, said that California is a 'mess'.  The former Olympic athlete, 72, made the comments after biologically male counsellors were allowed to sleep in the same cabins as fifth grade girls attending California's Los Alamitos School District 'You know what we are living in such a woke world right now I can’t even figure it out. This is a terrible story and you know they went to this camp and when they came back they were talking about gender this and that and the good news is that parents are now standing up so they called the school,' she told Fox News's Sean Hannity on Tuesday. She added: 'In this crazy sate of California the law says it’s okay to put staff in the cabins that they...
    Binghamton University has blasted one of its sociology professors for giving priority to 'non-white folks' during in-class discussions while asking white male students to stay silent. In the syllabus for her class dubbed 'Social Change - Introduction to Sociology',  instructor Ana Maria Candela wrote: 'This means that we try to give priority to non-white folks, to women, and to shy and quiet people who rarely raise their hands,' the syllabus reads.  'It also means that if you are white, male, or someone privileged by the racial and gender structures of our society to have your voice easily voiced and heard, we will often ask you to hold off on your questions or comments to give others priority and will come back to you a bit later or at another time.' Her de facto rule - which violated the school's faculty handbook - angered some students who viewed the policy as both racist and unfair. It also drew the ire of the university, which said her policy violated school principles.  The syllabus for a Binghamton class dubbed 'Social Change - Introduction...
    Film producers are planning a woke version of the Harry Potter movies in which the magical characters will be played by transgender and non-binary actors. In what will be seen by many as a challenge to J.K. Rowling, who was attacked for questioning the claim that trans women are identical to biological women, the filmmakers are seeking a more diverse line-up for the starring roles. They are insisting that some of the characters for the new versions – to be aired as a ‘web series’ – cannot be played by white actors, including the starring role of James Potter, father of young wizard Harry. According to casting notes, that role is only open to an actor who is ‘Asian, black, African descent, ethnically ambiguous, multiracial, Indigenous peoples, Latino, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, South Asian, Indian, Southeast Asian or Pacific Islander’. Producers have not specified who they want to play Lily Evans, Harry’s mother, but have said they want a ‘gender-nonconforming, non-binary, trans female’. American film producers are planning to release a new Harry Potter movie featuring transgender and non-binary actors. Pictured,...
    Kevin Costner's Yellowstone is finally being recognized this awards season, after receiving it's first ever nomination at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards. It is the first major nod that the popular show has ever received, despite being the most-watched cable TV show of the last five years. The western drama has received a nomination in the top category of ensemble in a television drama, competing against Succession, Squid Game, The Morning Show and The Handmaid's Tale.   Before this, the show had only received a single Creative Arts Emmys nomination for production design for a narrative contemporary program (one hour or more). Recognition: Kevin Costner's Yellowstone is finally being recognized this awards season, after receiving it's first ever nomination at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards The show's creator Taylor Sheridan said in a statement following the nomination: 'There's no bigger compliment to an actor than being recognized by their peers.' 'Congratulations to our incredibly talented cast on this wonderful and well deserved nomination.' The news comes after the series hit a new rating records with its Season 4 finale last Sunday, with...
    It's a regular topic of discussion by the pundit class that America is a nation with a growing number of 'silos' or 'bubbles.' The argument is that people only read and watch certain things that cater to their interests and are ignorant of the views and lifestyles of others. Since the argument is typically lodged by left-leaning pundits and columnists, it creates the false impression that it is the American right that lives in a silo, unencumbered by the opinions of the left or the reporting of the New York Times. Of course, if you think about it for two seconds, you'll realize the opposite is true. While Fox News is huge and powerful and there is a whole universe of talk radio hosts and news media outlets, which espouse conservative and libertarian views, the truth is that America's media is dominated by left of center views. And those who work in the mainstream media ignore everything that challenges their perceptions. It's one reason so many people expressed shock at the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, or more recently,...
    Kevin Costner's Yellowstone set new rating records with its Season 4 finale on Sunday, with more than 11 million viewers tuning in - the highest views since the 2017 Walking Dead Season 8 premiere. The drama takes a break from TV's typical New York City or LA settings to focus on a real American family in Montana who are fighting to protect their cattle ranch from land-grabbing interlopers.  The non-woke Paramount series continues besting cable TV mainstays - with over 7 million viewers on the week of December 6, it was only surpassed by the 13 million attracted to the New England Patriots versus Buffalo Bills football game and outpacing the FOX channel's The Five, Special Report with Brett Baer and Tucker Carlson Tonight.  On January 2, it became the most watched show on TV since The Walking Dead Season 8 premiere on AMC in October 2017, which drew 11.4 million viewers. Yellowstone's finale, which was aired on Paramount Network and CMT, was viewed by 10.3 million people, while the Paramount Network encores boosted the figures to more than 11 million viewers -...
    Kevin Costner's 'non-woke' Yellowstone was the most watched show or movie in America last week with more than 8 million people tuning in to the season four premier last Sunday.   The runaway popularity of the 1883 period ranch show, streaming on Paramount put it over heavyweight favorites like 60 Minutes and NCIS Los Angeles, which had 7.5 million and 5.3 million views, respectively.  The premier also ranked in second place in Digital Entertainment Group's Top 20 streamed movies or shows last week, losing out to the film Free Guy, while previous Yellowstone seasons also placed at the 11th and 19th spots.   Although Yellowstone is often compared to HBO's Succession - they came out the same year and are both family-business dramas - it breaks the mold for hit series as it's based not on the East or West coasts, but in Montana. It is shot in Utah. And unlike shows like Succession that play up current drama in the Big Apple or Los Angeles, Yellowstone avoids modern-day issues and political correctness conflicts, and instead puts a lens on rural, 1880s...
    Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images Donald Trump has tapped a former Deal or No Deal producer to lead one of his upcoming media ventures. Bloomberg reports that Scott St. John will oversee TMTG+, an online streaming and subscription service set to be part of the broader Trump Media & Technology Group, which will also include TMTG News and a social media platform, TRUTH Social. According to Bloomberg: Scott St. John will oversee TMTG+, the online video service of Trump Media and Technology Group, which will feature “non-woke” entertainment programming, news, sports, documentaries and podcasts. St. John has previously spoken enthusiastically about making shows that are “easily digestible” to viewers and giving contestants a chance to improve their lives. According to his IMDb page, St. John has produced 30 shows. Last week, Trump announced Trump Media & Technology Group, which will merge with Digital World Acquisition Corp., to “create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.” “I created TRUTH Social...
    Stephen Colbert can’t believe Donald Trump is actually calling his new social media platform “Truth Social.” “The man who told over 30,000 lies in office has launched something called ‘Truth,’” the Late Show host said in his monologue Thursday night. “He’s also launched a new makeup line called ‘Human Skin.’” As Colbert explained, when the site briefly went live on Wednesday, someone started a fake account in the former president’s name and promptly posted a photo of a “pig defecating on its own scrotum.” “Are they sure that was a fake account?” the host asked. “Because it feels on-brand.” From there, Colbert joked that Trump is also setting up his “second streaming service,” which—and this part is real—will be called TMTG+, “beating out his original title, ‘Person, Man, Woman, Camera, TV.’ According to a press release, the new service plans to feature “non-woke entertainment programming.” “That’s right, non-woke!” Colbert said. “If you can stay awake, your money back.” He then shared some of the shows that might appear on TMTG+, including Who Wants to Spank a Millionaire? hosted by...
    Alex Wong/Getty Images Donald Trump is setting up his own social network and streaming service. Trump Media & Technology Group, which the world found out is a thing on Wednesday night, announced it is entering into a merger and will “create a rival to liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies.” Trump Media said it is merging with Digital World Acquisition Corp., thereby “providing for a business combination that will result in Trump Media & Technology Group becoming a publicly listed company.” The press release read in part: President Donald J. Trump, the Chairman of TMTG, stated, “I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to...
    Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday joined the woke left in destroying the definition of women in an attempt to be politically correct and defend her usage of the phrase “menstruating people,” only to proceed to accuse the GOP of “protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders.” The self-proclaimed feminist forcefully defended her use of the phrase “menstruating people” on Wednesday, proclaiming people outside of that scientifically sound category can menstruate too. “Not just women! Trans men & non-binary people can also menstruate. Some women also *don’t* menstruate for many reasons, including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy,” she said, failing to note that there are only two biological sexes and that only females can menstruate or become pregnant. “GOP mad at this are protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders,” the New York lawmaker continued. Ocasio-Cortez, who is purportedly devoted to science, added that people need to “grow up” and accept that “trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people” exist. Again, she failed to recognize the reality of two biological...
    A school district in Virginia posted - and then deleted - information on their website telling students to listen to an audiobook by a non-binary abolitionist suggesting they should not feel safe around police. Among recommended readings, writing goals and school standards on Fairfax Community Public Schools' (FCPS) website, they listed Woke Kindergarten's audiobook Safe as a summer resource for second graders ahead of the 2021-2022 school year.   The audiobook - published by Ki, who goes by the pronouns they/them - was also posted on YouTube with pictures. Comments have been disabled. Among recommended readings, writing goals and school standards on Fairfax Community Public Schools' (FCPS) website, they listed Woke Kindergarten's audiobook Safe as a summer resource for second graders ahead of the 2021-2022 school year.  The video started with Ki's narration saying 'we all deserve to feel safe'. Ki went on to say where we deserve to feel safe, such as in our bodies and with friends. Towards the end of the video they said: 'I feel safe when there are no police,' which stirred up...
    Disney Executive Creative Director Jim Shull took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend Disneyland’s Snow White Enchanted Wish ride, which has been under attack over a scene that critics say includes a “non-consensual kiss” between Prince Charming and Snow White. “Allowing for the fact that cultural changes occur over decades it must be acknowledged that in the context of the tale on which the film is based that the ride is accurate,” Shull tweeted. “People are of course allowed to dislike the story but the Imagineering team did a spectacular job!” Allowing for the fact that cultural changes occur over decades it must be acknowledged that in the context of the tale on which the film is based that the ride is accurate. People are of course allowed to dislike the story but the Imagineering team did a spectacular job! #Disney pic.twitter.com/3aXFkNvHv4 — Jim Shull (@JimShull) May 5, 2021 Disneyland has been facing backlash from the establishment media, specifically from the San Francisco Chronicle, for what the paper referred to as “problematic scenes.” The revamped Snow White ride at Disneyland — which reopened last...
    A producer for Warner Bros’ upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot says Johnny Cage, a popular character from the video game franchise, will not appear in the film — at one point reportedly suggesting that the white male character was left alone to keep the cast diverse. According to several Wednesday reports, producer Todd Garner — of Paul Blart: Mall Cop fame — discussed the upcoming film, which will stream on HBO Max, at a recent press event, explaining the decision to cast a brand-new character and leave out Cage. “I want to make a sequel, and I’ve now got Johnny Cage, which hasn’t been used in the first one,” Garner said, according to ComicBook.com. “So I have a big stick and carrot that maybe they’ll let me have a Johnny Cage real presence in the second one. And secondarily, when you think about Mortal Kombat, if you just think about the patina of the movie, it has a very Asian feel to it. And I early on felt uncomfortable having a white male lead kind of lead that charge in the first movie.”...
    More On: reparations Biden senior adviser says White House will start acting on reparations ‘now’ Obama says reparations were a ‘nonstarter’ in his presidency Herschel Walker tells Congress Black Americans shouldn’t get reparations Maryland church donates $500K in reparations to ‘atone’ for slavery White House officials this week indicated that Team Biden is ready to “start acting” on the question of reparations for African Americans. The news is sure to set off speculation about a civil war on the left over the issue, between progressives and “moderates.” But a more interesting question is whether conservatives should oppose reparations? The answer is no. Reparations are the most straightforward means of acknowledging the historic injustice inflicted on African Americans, which is why such proposals have been made in some form or another almost continuously since the end of the Civil War, when Andrew Johnson unilaterally revoked the “40 acres and a mule” policy that would have gifted valuable property to 40,000 freed slaves. More than 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, we have black professionals and CEOs and even black billionaires....
    Police forces in Britain have recorded some 120,000 allegations of so-called hate speech, though none of the instances had been found to have stopped any actual crimes. In the United Kingdom, the police record non-crime hate incidents in criminal databases, meaning that despite having committed no crime, people will have the incidents visible on criminal background checks for six years. There is currently no appeal system in place. A freedom of information request from the Mail on Sunday revealed that none of the 43 police forces in England and Wales could list a single crime that was prevented by the crackdown on free speech. Twenty of the forces went on to admit that they do not have any system in place to monitor the effectiveness of the draconian practice. The hate crime adviser for the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Paul Gianassi, defended the recording of non-hate crime incidents, claiming that instances of hate speech could lead to “dehumanisation and ultimately murder”. Senior officers have also claimed that it assists the police in measuring “tensions effectively and to prevent serious hostility and...
    Former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is attacking conservative and anti-woke celebrities, demanding that social media giants step up censorship because these stars are tweeting “irrational and harmful opinions to millions.” In an essay for The Hollywood Reporter, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar singled out conservative Hollywood stars Jon Voight and James Woods. He also targeted liberal celebrities who refuse to submit to woke ideology, including Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has advocated for recognizing the difference between biological and transgender women. “Social media companies have begun slapping warnings on some messages that are false, incite violence or cause harm to society. But this needs to be done with more consistency and vigilance,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “Many Americans imbue stars with political and social intelligence they just don’t have… It doesn’t help to be surrounded by fawning people whose job it is to agree with everything you say. The irresponsibility of tweeting irrational and harmful opinions to millions, regardless of the damaging consequences to their country or people’s lives, proves that those stars deserve the harsh backlash.” US President Barack Obama shakes hands with...
