Bette Midler Warns Glenn Beck Could Set Off a Rwanda-Like Civil War in U.S.

It’s just what the primetime cable news lineup needed – another hour-long program tilted toward left-of-center politics with character assassination on conservatives.

CNN Headline News debuted its “The Joy Behar Show” on Sept. 29, which included appearances by lefty comedian Jeanane Garofalo, CNN’s Jack Cafferty and actress Bette Midler. Garofalo doubled down on her low regard for conservative 9/12 and tea party protesters, labeling them as racists. Cafferty went after President Barack Obama for his disregard of the carbon footprint his lobbying efforts in Copenhagen for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Read More

Film Capsule: Ruthless People

The 1986 movie Ruthless People is a black comedy loosely based on the O. Henry short story The Ransom of Red Chief, that starred Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater. It was directed by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker.

Plot description
When Ken (Reinhold) and Sandy Kessler (Slater) find themselves in an untenable financial position, they hatch a desperate scheme to get rich by kidnapping Barbara Stone (Midler), the overweight loud-mouthed wife of ruthless businessman Sam Stone (DeVito). This scheme is motivated in no small part by the fact that Sam has stolen successful fashion designs from the couple and is thus largely responsible for their woes. They plan to demand a large ransom from Stone. Read More

According to MTV, over 2,500 people showed up to the event, which was promoted solely by word of mouth, with a couple of flyers passed out the day before. G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks claimed he didn’t even know about the event until 3AM, the night before. The show was initially canceled due to several local politicians’ alleged concerns that “a rival or punk out to make a name for himself would try to shot Fitty during the performance,” which in turn lead to 50 being unable to file the proper paperwork with the city.
