ABL LIVE: Weinstein, Iran Deal, George Lopez Booed, German Soccer Kneeling – Call in (434) 658-1220

Embattled film mogul Harvey Weinstein — a once-dominant force in the Academy Awards who rewrote the rules of Oscar campaigning — has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in response to mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault against him.

Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd. Apparently, the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball. He refused; boos commenced.

Hertha Berlin’s players and officials “took a knee” to show their support for “an open-minded world” before their 2-0 loss against Schalke on Saturday. “Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility,” said a tweet posted on the official Hertha Berlin account. The tweet also said the club stands for “a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore”, before adding the hashtag #takeaknee.

President Trump has not yet pulled America out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. But he just took a vital step toward doing so, in a landmark speech on Friday that in plain language dismantled the dangerous fictions on which the deal was built.
