Disney’s remake of its children’s film “Beauty and the Beast” has a modern makeover with an updated socially progressive subplot. The film includes an “exclusively gay moment” scene between villain Gaston and his main sidekick, LeFou.

During a recent interview with Golden Globe-winning actress, Gina Rodriguez, Barack Hussein Obama appears to be telling illegal aliens that the federal government won’t track them or deport them if they vote in this year’s general election.
Rodriguez and Obama appear to have artfully crafted an indirect message telling illegal aliens that they have nothing to fear if they go out and vote.
Last night Ted Cruz couldn’t get his Republican Senate colleagues to back his proposed amendment to stop funding Planned Parenthood for one year and to prevent the Obama administration from using funds to implement the Iran nuclear deal until Congress can examine the additional agreements or “side deals” between the terrorist state and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
“You know, Obama has negotiated a catastrophic nuclear deal with Iran. Republican leadership goes on television all the time and rightly says this is a catastrophic deal. I would suggest that if we actually believed the words that are coming out of their mouths, then we should be willing to use any and all constitutional authorities,” Cruz said.
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history. This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for ... 150 years, since the industrial revolution.”—Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
On Wednesday, September 23, Pope Francis, the 266th pontiff to head the Roman Catholic Church, will meet with Barack Hussein Obama at the White House in Washington DC.
For practitioners of Judaism, September 23 is Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement, the most important day in the Jewish calendar. It is the holiest, most solemn religious fast day of the year. In biblical times, only on Yom Kippur could the high priest enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple to make atonement for the sins of the whole nation of Israel in one day (Leviticus 16).
But for Christendom and the Western World, which adopted Pope Gregory XIII’s 1582 Gregorian calendar, September 23 is the 266th day of the year, which incidentally is the same number of days it takes a woman to give birth to a child from the moment of conception.
It looks like one of the preeminent tea-party-aligned groups has been outed for an attempted shakedown of GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

The federal judge who held Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt and ordered her to jail for refusing to sign marriage licenses has on two occasions denied Christian students in Kentucky public schools their First Amendment rights by ordering them to undergo re-education training promoting the homosexual lifestyle against their religious objections.

When the Department of Veterans Affairs determines a veteran unable to take care of his financial affairs, it reports the assessment to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
Once NICS gets the report, it labels the veteran “incapacitated,” which means that he along with his family members who live in the same household are barred by law from buying or owning firearms.
Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected.
For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A 21st Century Fox spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter from now on, “Roger will report to Lachlan and James.”
James Wathen, a terminally-ill patient at Baptist Health Corbin in Corbin, Kentucky, had stopped eating and had become weak and frail. His condition kept deteriorating, and he was barely able to talk. Wathen managed to whisper to a nurse his wish to see his dog, Bubba, just one more time. The 73-year-old hadn’t seen his one-eyed Chihuahua with no bottom teeth since he arrived by ambulance at the Whitley County hospital six weeks earlier.
Ray Rice has become “Peck’s Bad Boy” for a deteriorating National Football League. When the first video of him dragging his unconscious fiancée out of an elevator appeared in July, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell slapped Rice’s wrist with a two-game suspension.
