West Hollywood Prop 8 Rally Remembers Those Who Made 2013 Supreme Court Decision Possible

Cedarville resident Robin Polisky brought her 4-year-old son, Kobi, to the courthouse Thursday morning in the hope of meeting Downey and the rest of the cast. Kobi has been in several commercials and a TV show pilot and looked forward to meeting the Iron Man star. They camped out outside the courtroom during filming and made friends with some of the crew but never made it into the shoot. They moved outside during the crews lunch break and were rewarded with glimpses of Downey playing with his own young son on the way back to his trailer. Bianca Bortoluzzi, a visitor from North Carolina and maybe the biggest Robert Downey Jr. fan ever, was jealous until she got her own glimpse of the star.

It was experiences like those, in addition to California voters’ approval of Prop 8 in 2008, that made them believe they would never see marriage equality in their lifetime. Now, said Borsum, “we want to see it across the country.” Los Angeles resident Brad Bigelow, 58, had a more immediate memory. This week, Bigelow will mark one year since his longtime partner died. He fought back tears talking about the loss.

Bring on a Hollywood-style disaster for the blockbuster film

How Hollywood softened us up for NSA surveillance

John Patterson

Yes, they’ve made some great movies, but they also double-handedly ushered in the age of the blockbuster they now bemoan. They have had a hand in eight of the top 20 highest grossing movies of all time , inflation-adjusted. Lucas might have virtually started a new religion with the Star Wars movies, but he milked them for every merchandising dollar he could for 35 years, then sold the rights to Disney for a staggering $4bn . How does he expect Disney to recoup that money? By making low-budget Star Wars art movies?

The NSA (unofficial motto: “Nobody Say Anything”) and Hollywood (unofficial motto: “Nobody Knows Anything”) have been feeling each other up at arm’s length for decades, but after 9/11 era the romance became official, and surveillance -based entertainment, from 24 to Alias, from Spooks to Big Brother to Person of Interest, went global. In movies where the NSA appears as itself (or a production designer’s imagining thereof), there is always one rogue NSA agent abusing the vast informational and surveillance capabilities available to him. In  Enemy of the State , it is the dependably barmy Jon Voight who goes off the reservation, and in Echelon Conspiracy, it is Martin Sheen. But these lone villains are routinely depicted as abusing a magnificent and fundamentally benign spy apparatus. The thing itself is morally neutral, they seem to argue, it is bad humans who make it behave badly. In Eagle Eye , the Department of Defence surveillance programme ARIIA (autonomous reconnaissance intelligence integration analyst – sexily voiced by Julianne Moore) goes all Skynet on its users, becoming self-aware and determining by ruthless logic that the real bug in the system isn’t digital at all – it is the human political class, and resolving to wipe out the lot of them at the state of the union address.

Hollywood moonbats urge Obama to push for no nukes at G8 summit

“He was being really flirty with her,” onlookers Samira Ajour told the Mirror. “He kept touching her shoulder and placing his hands on hers. I don’t think there was anything in it, he’s just a bit of a smoothie.”   Last week, Paul’s wife Alexandra, 49, reportedly asked him to leave their family home in Kent after he was romantically linked to his American Baking Competition co-host Marcela, 34. Alexandra has filled for divorce citing adultery as the reason for their marital breakdown.

“Such fatalism is a deadly adversary,” Matt Damon responds. Whoopi Goldberg, Morgan Freeman and a host of other far-left actors appear in the video, which was produced by Global Zero, a Washington, D.C.-based grassroots organization whose mission is “to eliminate all nuclear weapons by 2030.” “Global Zero will always have a partner in me and my administration,” Obama once declared. After all, if Obama would only take the lead and eliminate our nuclear arsenal, the rest of the world will immediately follow suit out of sheer inspiration.
