‘Dark Knight Rises’ Leads Weak Weekend Box Office, Slowed by Olympics and Aurora Shooting Rampage

Ben Stiller comedy The Watch

‘Dark Knight Rises’ Leads Weak Weekend Box Office, Slowed by Olympics and Aurora Shooting Rampage (20th Century Fox)

Weekend box office receipts are down sharply due to a combination of the London Olympics and the Aurora shooting massacre at the screening of new Batman flick, “Dark Knight Rises.” Twentieth Century Fox summer comedy, “The Watch,” starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade, opened with a sluggish $4.5 million Friday.

The Watch”  earned a mediocre C+ from CinemaScore. Summit Entertainment’s “Step Up Revolution,” grossed $4.9 million. It is expected that “The Watch” will beat “Step Up Revolution” when the final estimates are in Sunday.

Dark Knight Rises is expected to earn in the $59 million range for the weekend, compared to a $75 million second weekend for Dark Knight. Dark Knight Rises ended Friday with a $243 million haul.

Black Couple Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson Nuptials Cancelled by Predominantly White Mississippi Church

Black couple, Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson, denied holding their marriage ceremony at predominantly white First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs, Miss., after the pastor, Dr. Stan Weatherford, calls the day before their July 21st wedding to tell them it had been cancelled.

Fox 6 in Alabama reports that the couple had booked the church and distributed invitations only to find out that the church’s congregation had decided that the Wilsons, an African American couple, could not tie the knot in their church.

Charles Wilson told MyFoxAlabama, “The church congregation had decided no black could be married at that church, and that if he went on to marry her, then they would vote [the pastor] out the church.”

Still think there’s no racism in America? This is preposterous. Dr. Stan Weatherford performed the wedding at a nearby church. Um, why is he still a minister at that church? I would want no part of a church that discriminates against others. Why am I not surprised this happened in Mississippi. The church is the most segregated place in America. You take a look at the congregation in most cities on any given Sunday and you will see, most attend segregated churches. There are black churches, white churches and very few churches with mixed congregations.

U.S. Wrestler Elena Pirozhkova Sweeps Michelle Obama Off Her Feet at London Olympics

U.S. Wrestler Elena Pirozhkova Literally Sweeps Michelle Obama Off Her Feet at London Olympics (Twitpic Clarissa Chun)

First Lady Michelle Obama was swept off her feet, not by President Obama, but by U.S. wrestler Elena Pirozhkova, when the two met on Friday, as Mrs. O met with athletes at the Olympics to give them a team boost. Pirozhkova, a native of Russia who moved to the U.S. when she was three, asked Michelle Obama,  “Can I pick you up?”

“Even before she made the rounds I thought I can’t just hug her like everybody else,” she said. “I think she was nervous. I went slow. I just picked her up. I wanted to ask her permission. There was security all around. And she gave it. I will only meet her once. I wanted to do something different.” Source

Elena Pirozhkova stands at 5-feett-5 and competes in the 63 kilogram (approximately 138 lbs) category. The picture was captured and tweeted by fellow wrestler Clarissa Chun. I guess Michelle Obama will always remember Elena Pirozhkova, the woman who swept her off her feet. LOL.

Disgraced Former FL GOP Chairman Jim Greer: We Wanted to Suppress Black Votes

Disgraced Former FL GOP Chairman Jim Greer:  We Wanted to Suppress Black Voters (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Suppression of black voters in Florida:  Former Florida Republican Party chairman Jim Greer admitted that the party had meetings about “keeping blacks from voting,” in other words, voter suppression. Salon has an in-depth commentary on the alleged black voter suppression:

In the deposition, released to the press yesterday, Greer mentioned a December 2009 meeting with party officials. “I was upset because the political consultants and staff were talking about voter suppression and keeping blacks from voting,” he said, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He also said party officials discussed how “minority outreach programs were not fit for the Republican Party,” according to the AP.

The comments, if true (he is facing felony corruption charges and has an interest in scorning his party), would confirm what critics have long suspected. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is currently facing inquiries from the Justice Department and pressure from civil rights groups over his purging of voter rolls in the state, an effort that critics say has disproportionately targeted minorities and other Democratic voters. One group suing the state claims up to 87 percent of the voters purged from the rolls so far have been people of color, though other estimates place that number far lower. Scott has defended the purge, even though he was erroneously listed as dead himself on the rolls in 2006.

Of course, the right will shrug this off as Jim Greer having a grudge against the Florida Republicans because of his criminal issues. Voter suppression is real and shouldn’t be ignored.

Trouble for Michael Phelps? Michael Phelps almost failed to qualify Saturday for the final in the 400-m individual medley. He squeaked through by seven-hundredths of a second. This is the first of his seven events. Olympic champion Park Tae-Hwan was reinstated after first being disqualified in a dramatic opening session of the London Olympics. Michael Phelps’ pal Ryan Lochte is on his heels. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Ralph Smeed Foundation Erects Billboard Comparing President Obama to Aurora Shooter James Holmes

Idaho Billboard Comparing Obama to Aurora Gunman James Holmes is Reprehensible, Goes too Far (KBOI2)

The Ralph Smeed Foundation erects billboard comparing President Obama to Aurora shooter James Holmes. It is reprehensible and goes too far, but plays into the right wing’s scare tactics to get voters nervous enough to vote for the “wazzock” Mitt Romney. The group said the billboard, which is located on Franklin Road, is meant to draw attention to military men and women dying overseas, KBOI2 reports.

George W. Bush mission accomplished

George W. Bush on aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln saying ‘mission accomplished’ Iraq war.

Um, sorry, but this is way over the line. If you want to draw people’s attention to military men and women dying overseas, you don’t use the picture of the man who singlehandedly carried out the worst shooting massacre in this country’s history and compare the President to him. In fact, more soldiers died in Iraq and Afghanistan after former president George W. Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003, saying “mission accomplished.”

Equating President Obama’s foreign policies, which have largely been successful, to the reprehensible and despicable acts of James Holmes is an affront to the 12 people who were killed and the 58 wounded, as well as their families.

Here is a sampling of the comments left on KBOI 2’s website:

Maggie8 Go Idaho!!!!   Obama did nothing to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize and it should be taken away based on his cooperating with the Russians to allow the slaughter of thousands of Syrians… doing absolutely nothing to help.  He jumped right in when Egypt was incurring the same thing because Obama supports the Muslium Brotherhood.   He has made his bed with the Russians and cannot cross them now, we are next.  Obama is selling out America.  Freedom of speech… applies to all.  Suck it up you liberal cry babies.  Stay strong Idaho… don’t fold to pressure from the left.

Son Sam What is way over the line is that he is said to have two foreign citizenships, one from Kenya through his biological Kenyan father and one from Indonesia through his adoptive Indonesian father! What is way over the line is that he  appears to have used a proven forged birth certificate and forged selective service documentation to establish a false identity!  What is way over the line is that it seems he gas multiple aliases; barack Obama. Barack Soebarkah, Barry Soetero,  and Harrison J. Bounell! What is way over the line is that he is said to be currently using a stolen SS#! What is way over the line is that his college transcripts, law school transcripts and publications, and the reason for lose of his law license have all been sealed by executive order! WHAT IS WAY OVER THE LINE IS THAT ALL OF THIS IS WITHOUT MSM OR CONGRESSIONAL CHALLENGE!! His policies may be A problem, but they are not THE problem! HE is THE problem!!!

Alice I fell sorry for the shooting victims of whom my friend was one, but the billboard doesn’t offend me, when your right your right and this billboard is right!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carmencita  Nazis’??? Seriously? You had better take a look at what your precious president and his intolerant fascist supporters do to those they do not agree with . ..  who’s the Nazi now???? The First Amendment  means nothing to these hypocrites. Intolerance is willingly tolerated when it is a conservative disagreeing with  the  left-wing views of Obama and his thugs. Whoever gave you that passing grade in your constitutional law class should be shot because you came out of it without even an inkling of what America is about or what the Constitution stands for.

  There are striking similarities between Obama’s policies to control industry and those of Adolf Hitler’s National Socialism.  Cases in point, raping the holdings of auto company shareholders and putting czars in charge of industry, over-reaching dictates to exercise control over commerce.  Turning control of GM over to the union stooges, Chrysler to Fiat.  Ruling by executive order.  Give him a second term and say goodbye to the full Bill of Rights, starting with the first four amendments.
These are the wingnuts Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are appealing to for support. I didn’t realize President Obama was the one who ordered the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. I guess he retroactively ordered the Armed Forces, starting with the first skirmish with Saddam Hussein during George H. W. Bush’s term, including Bill Clinton’s Somalia and Bosnian offensives, right up to George W. Bush.
