Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Sen. Bill Cassidy For Lying About Obamacare Replacement Bill Passing The "Jimmy Kimmel Test" — Watch!

Healthcare is a confusing topic… but someone's got to explain it. That someone is Jimmy Kimmel, who called one senator a liar for claiming that he supported a health care bill that would actually guarantee coverage for all families. On Tuesday, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host ripped on Sen. Bill Cassidy for lying about his new legislation [...] Healthcare is a confusing topic... but someone's got to explain it. That someone is Jimmy Kimmel, who called one senator a liar for claiming that he supported a health care bill that would actually guarantee coverage for all families. On Tuesday, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host ripped on Sen. Bill Cassidy for lying about his new legislation passing the "Jimmy Kimmel Test." The last time the GOP tried to get its "skinny" Obamacare replacement bill passed, Kimmel shared a gut-wrenching story about his newborn son Billy having to get emergency open heart surgery. Video: Jimmy's Emmy-Hosting Advice To Stephen Colbert Is Fucked Up After the 49-year-old issued a plea for keeping health care available to people who can't afford it and those with pre-existing conditions, Cassidy assured Kimmel that any health legislation he drafted would have to pass the "Jimmy Kimmel Test." But after reading up on the new legislation Cassidy co-authored with Sen. Lindsey Graham, Kimmel said the Louisiana Sen. "wasn't very honest" in keeping his promise! Not only will the horrible new bill allow states to make people with pre-existing conditions pay even more, it threatens to take away insurance for 32 million people. Even those who are still covered will see a 20% increase in premiums in the first year. The GOP already has 49 votes and only needs one more to pass the Graham-Cassidy bill -- which Donald Trump is reportedly eager to sign if it makes it to his desk. But that won't happen if Kimmel has anything to say about it! See what the late night host said about this iTunes agreement of a bill (above)! Billy's helping me write tonight's monologue. I'll give our thoughts on the #GrahamCassidy health "care" bill. @BillCassidy @LindseyGrahamSC pic.twitter.com/IOmJ4am5D7 — Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) September 19, 2017.....»»

10 Movies Where the Sex Scenes Include REAL Sex

It’s become a common thing in Hollywood to have a body double whose job it is to make the actor or actress look fantastic as they engage in fake sexual contact. What’s not so common are the films in which the actors and actresses are actually having sex rather than other people faking it on their behalf. It’s not very common at all, in fact, but here are XX movies where the sex scenes include real sex. 9 Songs The title of the film refers to the nine songs that are played by a series of eight different rock bands throughout the movie. Its director Michael Winterbottom decided on a romantic drama with a difference – it would include unsimulated footage of people doing the horizontal bop. There’s oral, masturbation, there’s actual sex and even a scene in which a genuine ejaculation is shown. Derek Malcolm of The Guardian said of the film: “Nine Songs looks like a porn movie, but it feels like a love story. The sex is used as a metaphor for the rest of the couple’s relationship. And it is shot with Winterbottom’s customary sensitivity.” Gandu India is famed for its strong sexual mores and its reluctance to involve anything risqué in its film industry which is why Gandu is a surprise entrant on our list. There’s an ongoing debate as to whether the 2010 movie is in fact straight up porn or something more nuanced. Many Indian audience members walked out during the screening of the movie in protest. The film is shot in black and white apart from the sex scene which merited a Technicolor presentation. Sweet Movie When a movie is short for the art-house crowd; there’s a much higher chance of it being sexually explicit. 1974’s Sweet House is directed by Dusan Makavejev the Yugoslav director and was in essence a comedy. The sex scenes are stomach churning and include both coprophilia and emetophilia. Not all the sex scenes are real, some are staged but they are all very explicit and the film was banned in a ton of countries upon release. Love A rather more recent entrant to the list; 2015’s Love was a French drama produced in 3D. In general the film was critically panned and its only real appeal was the fact that its sex scenes included real sex. From its 42% score on Rotten Tomatoes – it’s probably fair to say that they didn’t get the audiences as hot under the collar as the director had anticipated. Anatomy of Hell Another French movie and another fairly pitiful film. The premise of 2004’s Anatomy of Hell is that a gay woman tries to kill herself and then hires a straight guy to lock her up and do what he wants with her for four days. Unsurprisingly it’s panned for its homophobia but even the critics who hated the movie were quick to point out that the sex scenes were in fact ground breaking. In the Realm of the Senses In the Realm of the Senses was a Japanese movie made by a French-Japanese director in 1976. It [...].....»»

Bill O"Reilly STILL Denies Ever Harassing Employees & Tells Matt Lauer Those Career-Ending Accusations Were A "Hit Job"

The former host of The O'Reilly Factor appeared on TODAY six months after being ousted at Fox News, where he called the sexual harassment charges made against him nothing but a "political and financial hit job." Related: Bill Desperately Returns To News With Very Own Internet Show! Sitting down with Matt Lauer, the political pundit denied ever having been accused of misconduct against women -- until he was faced with the claims that ended his cable news career. He insisted: "Not in 42 years. In 42 years, I've been in this business. I worked with 12 companies. Not one time did I have any interaction with HR, any complaints filed against me." Earlier this year, it was reported that five women were paid a settlement of $13 million by the network for agreeing not to file lawsuits or speak publicly about the allegations against O'Reilly. But the conservative commentator claims he knows nothing about Fox's "business decision" in paying off his accusers. He continued: "I don't know because I'm not privy to what Fox News did. After [former Fox News Chairman] Roger Ailes went down, there was a flood of lawsuits — a flood — with dozens of people named. And the company did what the company did." Adamant that he was only one of the many names dragged in the mud by the accusations, O'Reilly asserted that no media company is a stranger to these type of harassment lawsuits -- not even Lauer's! Related: O'Reilly Says America's 'Hatred' Killed Roger Ailes! He shaded: "Every company in this country — including this one, Comcast — has these lawsuits. Some of there are valid, some of them are not. They settle them for a number of reasons. As an employee, I don't really have any say in that matter." When asked why he didn't countersue his accusers and clear his name, O'Reilly claimed it was impossible for a public figure to win these type of legal battles: "I could do that, but the collateral damage of these lawsuits, the press frenzy. Every allegation is a conviction. Every allegation in this area is a conviction — they don't look for the truth." Maintaining his stance that the lawsuits and network boycotts were orchestrated by a leftist cabal, the anchor promised that his team would eventually reveal the truth and prove that the victim here is O'Reilly! He added: "I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years." Well, at least his conscious is clear. Watch his full interview (below).

Monday's Senate hearing on the removal-of-health-care-in-favor-of-tax-cuts bill (not succinct but at least accurate) was interrupted by protesters from ADAPT, a grassroots disability rights organization with a simple message about health care: PLEASE DON'T KILL US!

Which way seems better for the economy AND for their well-being, Republicans?? Frankly when you look at those kinds of numbers, some civil disobedience doesn't seem at all out of order.
