    Kabukilover - Hollywood could use some diversity. Lilly white movies out of Hollywood are absolute junk for the most part.

    Aren't those the movies with the highest box office returns?

    Bill Clinton has a history of molesting and abusing women. Hillary has a history of abusing the women who accused Billy of molesting and abusing them. The times they are a' changing. Women were once afraid of accusing powerful men like Bill Cosby of molesting and abusing them - back then. Now, women are standing up to the abusers. Women who vote.

    Women voters know Bernie never molested or abused women.

    Black on black crime is a major issue facing black neighborhoods. Ignoring that while blaming the police for trying to keep order in gang-infested and drug-riddled neighborhoods is absurd. Beyoncé should spend her time and millions trying to keep all lives safe.

    “Before seeing a frame of the television series, the "Star Trek" universe lit my imagination on fire,” said Fuller, who launched his career in the 1990s writing for “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager,” two of the series in the sci-fi saga.

    If I remember correctly, "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager" were the least liked of the Star Trek series.

    Kurtzman, who co-wrote and produced the blockbuster 2009 and 2013 spin-off movies “Star Trek” and “Star Trek Into Darkness,” will executive produce the new show along with Fuller.

    On the plus side, Alex Kurtzman's work has been highly regarded by the die-hard fans.

    All lives matter. Police officer's lives, musician's lives matter, athlete's lives matter, as well as black lives, white lives, red lives, yellow lives, and brown lives. The Black Lives Matter movement seems to be a racist organization consisting of a few groups of protestors who seem to have impressed Beyoncé.

    I question why a non-official national holiday such as Super Bowl should be the chosen platform for protest. There are other venues available. Team Beyoncé can certainly afford to buy television time and create her own TV special.

    Promoting civil disobedience and attacks on law enforcement personal may sell music but it's an odd way to spend a football Sunday afternoon.

    Laguna - Hillary could turn this on a dime if push does come to shove. The GOP is foolish to pursue such a reckless strategy alienating women as well as men.

    Times have changed. Just ask Bill Cosby. People no longer wish to excuse Bill Clinton's molesting of women, and Hillary's enabling of it, as a political necessity. Today's voters can choose Bernie.

    M3M3M3 - Sounds nice but it's not really true in countries that governed by law. If O'Barry sues and the courts decide that the Minister excercised his discretion illegally because he had no grounds to cancel his visa and that O'Barry should have been allowed in, doesn't that sound more like a right than a privilege to you?

    If it's really true? If O'Barry sues? If the courts decide that the minister exercised his discretion illegally? If he had no grounds to cancel the visa? If O'Barry should have been allowed in? Doesn't that sound like a lot of "ifs"?

    Assange should return to Sweden and face the women who claim he raped them. All Assange has to do is walk out of the embassy and he'll be provided with free transportation.

    Or he can stay in the embassy for another 5 years. That's when the statute of limitations on rape will expire.

    Lawyer and legal blogger Carl Gardner said the finding “beggars belief” and pointed out it isn’t legally binding. “Nobody will have to do anything,” as a result of this finding, he said.

    .....Last year, Swedish prosecutors dropped the molestation inquiries because of the statute of limitations. But the rape investigation remains open.

    .....A supporter shouted, “We love you Julian” as he went back inside the embassy — for what might be a very long time. British and Swedish officials said Friday they won’t be swayed by the working group’s opinion, and it is five more years before the statute of limitations on rape expires.

    Assange emerged from the embassy, saw he still had a shadow, and realized he is looking at five more years of confinement.

    Stuart hayward - Arrestpaul: Assange has been accused of rape but it has yet to be proven factual, you even used the word "alleged" but then go on to say, "at least he can't rape any other women while he's in the embassy"

    Do you actually have proof he is a rapist or is your hatred already convicted him without knowing the facts?

    Assange is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion, all non-political crimes. And the U.S. has never issued a warrant for Assange's arrest. Plus, while Sweden and Britain recognize "political" asylum, they do not recognize the "diplomatic" asylum granted by Ecuador under the 1954 Caracas Convention.

    According to the "UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention Assange Opinion" -

    23 - According to the Government of Sweden, n 18 November 2010, a Swedish prosecutor requested that Mr. Assange should be detained in his absence on probable cause suspected of rape, two counts of sexual molestation and unlawful coercion. On the same day, the Stockholm District Court decided to detain Mr. Assange in his absence. The decision was upheld by the Svea Court of Appeals on 24 November 2010. In order to execute the detention order, the Swedish prosecutor issued an international arrest warrant as well as a European Arrest Warrant.

    25 - Mr. Assange requested a reconsideration of the detention order before the Stockholm District Court on 24 June 2014. On 16 July 2014, the Stockholm District Court ruled that the decision on detention in absentia should be upheld.

    34 - It should furthermore be noted that according to relevant international instruments, including the Latin American Convention on Diplomatic Asylum, the right to seek and enjoy asylum does not apply if an applicant as ground of asylum invokes that he or she is wanted for ordinary, non-political, crime (see e.g. Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights). In this respect, the Government notes that Mr. Assange is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion, all non-political crimes, and can therefore not rely on the above legal frameworks in this respect.

    35 - In light of the above, the Government refutes the source's allegation that Sweden is obliged by applicable law and Convention obligations to recognise the asylum granted.

    48 - The Ecuadorean Government granted Mr. Assange "diplomatic" asylum under the 1954 Caracas Convention, not "political" asylum. The UK is under no legal obligations arising from Ecuador's decision.

    Black Sabbath - No they don't. First, they are obligated to uphold the bilateral and international treaties regarding granting of Visas to foreign travellers.

    Further, if granted a visa, Japan must follow its own laws. If you have a valid Visa, Japan cannot simply revoke it.

    Apparently they can. If a country can issue a visa, they can also revoke the same visa. O'Barry has no inalienable right to enter any country other than his own. No bilateral or international treaty requires any country to accept liars. (Unless the liars have diplomatic status, of course. hehehe)

    Trump congratulated Cruz on Monday night and told reporters on Tuesday he was “very happy with what happened in Iowa.” But then Trump found out that some Cruz subordinates (not all Cruz subordinates) had told caucus voters that Ben Carson had quit the race. That could have caused some caucus voters to change their vote to another GOP candidate, possibly Cruz. Cruz and Rubio received more votes than the polls indicated they would. Was this the reason why?

    But a Trump tweet on Wednesday accused the Cruz campaign of telling Iowa voters that Ben Carson was quitting the race so he could steal Carson votes.

    Earlier Wednesday, Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told CNN the Texas senator had apologized personally to Carson. Tyler said the Cruz team “as a campaign” never alleged Carson was dropping out.

    Carson said the Monday comment amounted to “dirty tricks.”

    Carson, Cruz, and Trump know what occurred at some of the caucuses. Cruz supporters blame CNN for accidentally/deliberately mis-reporting the Carson story.

    Assange can leave the embassy at any time. All he has to do is open the embassy door and walk outside.

    “We have been consistently clear that Mr Assange has never been arbitrarily detained by the U.K. but is, in fact, voluntarily avoiding lawful arrest by choosing to remain in the Ecuadorean embassy,” a British government spokeswoman said.

    More importantly, there are two women in Sweden who expect the alleged rapist Assange to face trial in Sweden. (At least Assange can't rape any other women while he's in the embassy.)

    “An allegation of rape is still outstanding and a European Arrest Warrant in place, so the UK continues to have a legal obligation to extradite Mr Assange to Sweden,” she said.

    Swedish prosecutors said the U.N. decision had no formal impact on the rape investigation under Swedish law.

    cleo - So tina, no children, no offices, no insults (telling a man who kills dolphins that he is a dolphin killer is not an insult; telling him that he has blood on his hands is not an insult; telling him he is an embarrassment to the whole of Japan is not an insult, just the truth. Then again, sometimes the truth hurts), no threats except from the flag-waving nutter.

    I guess that the animal-rights activists didn't video any of their supporters threatening anyone. What a coincidence. Or was it by choice? How much time did the animal-rights activists have to edit their videos?

    I wonder if O'Barry taught the animal-rights activists how to properly edit videos? O'Barry currently has a lot of time on his hands.

    Clinton’s victory in Iowa means she will collect 23 delegates and Sanders will win 21. With her advantage in super delegates — the party officials who can support the candidate of their choice — Clinton now has a total of 385 delegates. Sanders has 29.

    If Hillary is indicted by the FBI, I imagine that those superdelegates will find a way to change sides (to Bernie) at, or before, the Democrat convention.

    Christopher Glen - Japan would prefer he leaves of his own accord. Forcible deportation of an innocent man would have further negative repercussions.

    O'Barry is not an innocent man. O'Barry is not wanted in Japan. O'Barry is not legally in Japan. O'Barry has no legal reason to be in Japan. The only reason O'Barry is still in Japan is because he won't leave a country that doesn't want him and has ordered him to leave. The whole world is not watching. Everybody is not watching. On a global scale, very few even care about O'Barry, Flipper, or animal rights activists.
