Russian News Outlets Are PISSED At Morgan Freeman For Trying To Expose "Former KGB Spy" Vladimir Putin!

Russia is not happy with Morgan Freeman's latest role.

The actor is getting attacked by Russian media for starring in a Rob Reiner-produced video in which he accuses Vladimir Putin of meddling in the U.S. election. Freeman starts out by pitching a movie script centering around a salty KGB spy that uses the chaos of the Soviet Union's collapse to launch his way into politics, and later gets revenge on the U.S. through cyber attacks and spreading false information. It's at this point in the video where Freeman reveals he isn't describing a movie, but the real life events of "former KGB spy" Putin! He then urges POTUS to tell the nation that "during this past election, we came under attack by the Russian government." Related: Russian Accounts Likely Bought $100,000 In Ads Around The Election! Needless to say, the Russian media was not enthused with Freeman's attempt at whistleblowing. Labeling him "Hysterical Freeman," news outlets brought in psychiatrists who say he has a "Messianic complex" from playing God and the President. Other anchors called the actor an overworked pothead. The Kremlin, however, is simply shaking it off. Press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Putin was not taking the video seriously, as its claims were "groundless and of an exclusively emotional character." Well, if The Committee to Investigate Russia can't use this story to expose the Russian President, at least it could make for one hell of a political thriller! Ch-ch-check out the controversial video (below). [Image via C-SPAN/YouTube.].....»»

Twenty-year-old Aasia Bibi is claimed to have murdered her husband, Amjad, to get out of their arranged marriage by poisoning a container of milk. As it turned out, he didn't drink the milk, and it was then used to make lassi, which was served to his family. With the death toll rising to 16, 11 others are still under medical supervision. Related: Girl Who Persuaded BF To Commit Suicide Sentenced It's said Aasia had tried to escape to her parent's house before the alleged murders, but was forced to return to her husband. Additionally, a senior police official revealed her alleged lover Shahid and his aunt Zarina Mai were also arrested and charged under Pakistan's anti-terror law. Aasia has denied being responsible for the murders, saying: "Shahid told me to poison the beverage but I didn't do it. He [Shahid] asked me to marry him but I refused." Wow.

Russian Model Arrested After Jumping From The Sixth Floor Of A Hotel To Escape Alleged Rapist

This is seriously concerning. According to recent reports, a Russian model is "in custody" in Dubai after she leapt from a hotel's sixth floor to escape a man who was allegedly trying to rape and kill her. What the heck??

According to recent reports, a Russian model is "in custody" in Dubai after she leapt from a hotel's sixth floor to escape a man who was allegedly trying to rape and kill her. What the heck?? Related: Nick Gordon Arrested AGAIN For Violating No-Contact Order The 22-year-old alleged victim, named Ekaterina Stetsyuk, found herself with a broken spine after she miraculously survived a fall which occurred after she turned down sex with a "foreign man." Per the Daily Mirror, Ekaterina's mother Inge says her daughter was threatened by an American businessman, who put a knife to Stetsyuk's throat. Close friend Irina Grossman shared: "To save her life and dignity, she jumped from the sixth floor. She survived by a miracle. Her spine is broken, several vertebras [sic] were crushed. She cannot walk or move by herself, but doctors are giving good forecasts because her spinal chord is intact." However, Ekaterina is now the one in custody, as her supposed attacker made a counter claim. Apparently, he told the police that Stetsyuk attacked him and he was forced to defend himself. While the brunette model isn't imprisoned, she is "in custody" in her hospital bed. At first, despite having several crushed vertebrae, Ekaterina seemed in good spirits. In a video from her hospital bed, she told loved ones: "I am doing well, do not worry about me. People from the (Russian) consulate visited... My surgery was postponed. We'll see how it goes. All will be fine, do not worry. (Friend's name) has come to see me, all ok. All is fine mummy, I love you. Kisses. I have got everything." However, after one particular phone call, Inge has become more and more concerned for her daughter's well being. She added: "The attack took place on 3 March. A man, a foreigner, attacked Katya, grabbed her neck and put a knife at her throat. My daughter tried to save her life, she had to jump from the sixth floor. She has serious injuries, she can't walk. And yesterday Katya [Ekaterina's nickname] called and said she would be taken to jail. They want to make her guilty." It's said that Stetsyuk's attacker was detained at the airport as he tried to flee Dubai. The unnamed man faces up to 15 years in jail if convicted for the attack. It was during an interrogation that Ekaterina became a suspect, as the man made damning claims against the model. In addition to trying to raise £11,000 for medical costs, Inge is fighting back at those accusing her daughter of being an escort. She defended: "My daughter is a well known model in Irkutsk. On 15 February she left for Dubai for a month where she had a contract." Understandably, as the laws are different in Dubai, this gossip is likely to "cause her more trouble." While the Russian consulate has asked Ekaterina's loved ones to stay silent on the matter, Inge isn't sure whom she can trust. In fact, she plans to fly to Dubai as soon as possible. Gocha Buachidze, the Russian Counsel in Dubai, gave this update on the concerning situation: "We are thoroughly studying the situation around Russian citizen Ekaterina Stetsyuk and we are providing all necessary support to her. The investigation is in progress. The Consulate cannot give any more details of the accident due to the request of the citizen herself." We're certain this isn't the last we've heard of this controversy. Be sure to check back for any and all updates! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Related: Stanford Student Expelled After Allegedly Poisoning Her Classmates Three years ago, Wendy died from a combination of carbon monoxide poisoning and Xanax, and was found -- next to a BBQ grill and a suicide note -- on the floor of the sisters' garage. Authorities reportedly believe Jill orchestrated the whole thing, and was the one who wrote the note. Not only was the producer treated for carbon monoxide poisoning, she was allegedly the only person who saw Wendy two days before her death. There are reports that the two sisters agreed to a suicide pact, with Jill backing out at the last second. Wendy's three dogs also died in the alleged incident. Jill was booked for murder and three counts of animal cruelty. She will head back to Los Angeles for prosecution. [Image via The Jerry Springer Show/Instagram.].....»»

That's because the new pick, Mike Pompeo, isn't just totally loyal to Trump in an alarmingly dictatorial way, that also seems to extend to loyalty to Russia. As CIA director, Pompeo has already put Trumpian spin on info from his agency, saying publicly they had determined Russian meddling hadn't affected the election. Related: Donald Trump Gets Creatively Racist On His California Trip The CIA had to issue a statement afterward saying the statement by their director was NOT TRUE; they had not done such an assessment. It seems this kind of blind eye toward Russia is what Trump was looking for all along. After all, it seems clear at this point now-fired-by-tweet Rex Tillerson, who survived for months after calling his boss "a fucking moron" was fired 24 hours after agreeing it appeared the Russian government was behind a nerve gas attack in Salisbury, England on a former agent and his daughter. The U.K. is reportedly looking at expelling 23 Russian diplomats over the incident. Trump hasn't even tweeted about it. Why? In case you hadn't noticed, TRUMP NEVER SAYS A BAD WORD ABOUT RUSSIA! He hasn't even enacted the sanctions Congress passed. It's called not biting the hand that feeds. It's like it's collusion you can watch in real time. And it appears this isn't the first time Russia was the reason for a change in Trump's cabinet.

Keep the comments cordial or keep it to yourself is the way of the world right now. Every inside joke is eligible to be outed and up for national review. If the “insider” is discovered by an “outsider” and found to be insensitive as well as in violation of PC culture standards then the offender shall be shamed into oblivion. Russian fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko is in trouble for a note that she sent to her Instagram blogger friend which read “To my n—-s in Paris.” A notable name she upset was Naomi Campbell. Although the majority consumer, human beings the color of casper and lighter reciting rap lyrics with profane African-American pejoratives in them are still taboo. America has this conversation three times at minimum annually about whether the use of the N word is okay to use across the board. Russian fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko is under fire for using the N-word in a note to lifestyle blogger Miroslava Duma (neither are black). On Monday, Duma, 32, posted a snap of the tone-deaf note on her Instagram story, which read “To my n—-s in Paris,” a play on the popular Kanye West song. For someone from Russia I’m surprised she used the correct casual spelling of the word. In a country where it gets so cold that most Russians eat their own children during the never-ending winters you stop having feelings on the outside and inside when living in weather that’s always -32. She can avoid the backlash by blaming it on the weather. Russia and fashion are clearly antonyms so most sane individuals were avoiding her clothes already. Also there really can’t be a boycott when black people weren’t buying post-Soviet outerwear to begin with. This DISGUSTS me. To see Mira post something on IG so casually using this racial slur, and then have Ulyana defend the usage with such a bs excuse makes my blood boil. So tired of “fashion girls” thinking that listening to one rap song gives them the right. pic.twitter.com/P5XHVnNXaX — Callia A.

LAPD Opens Harvey Weinstein Rape Investigation As TWO New Accusers Come Forward!

Harvey Weinstein may soon have nowhere to run. We already know the infamous Hollywood heavyweight is being investigated for sexual assault in the U.K. with its lack of statute of limitations.

We already know the infamous Hollywood heavyweight is being investigated for sexual assault in the U.K. with its lack of statute of limitations. He may even have to answer for the 1997 accusations of Rose McGowan thanks to a legal loophole in Utah. But according to the latest reports, he is now being investigated in his own city. Related: All Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The LAPD confirmed an Italian model-actress (who wished to remain anonymous) has officially become the sixth woman to accuse Weinstein of rape or forcible sex acts. The now-38-year-old tells the L.A. Times she met Weinstein for only the second time at the Los Angeles Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest in February 2013. After they spoke briefly at the fest, he showed up "without warning" at her hotel lobby asking to come up. She said no, but he got her room number and came up anyway, soon bullying his way in telling her he "just wanted to talk." But he didn't: "Once inside, he asked me questions about myself but soon became very aggressive and demanding and kept asking to see me naked. He grabbed me by the hair and forced me to do something I did not want to do. He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me." She says she tried to stop him by showing him photos of her children, but it didn't do any good. In all, she says, the encounter lasted 45 minutes: "When he left, he acted like nothing happened. I barely knew this man. It was the most demeaning thing ever done to me by far. It sickens me still. … He made me feel like an object, like nothing with all his power... All these years I've been thinking why I didn't call the police immediately. I regret that I opened the door." Today also brings yet another new accusation from Russian TV host Katya Mtsitouridze (above, right), who recounted to The Hollywood Reporter an incident with Weinstein 13 years ago: "I first met Mr. Weinstein in the Regent hotel at the Berlin film festival [in 2003], where I was doing a television interview with George Clooney for Channel One. Harvey was co-producer of Clooney's directorial debut, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. After the interview, he came up to me saying that he liked my questions and would love to have lunch in his room — that he loved Russian culture, especially Chekhov, and that his grandparents were originally from Russia — and that we could have an interesting conversation. I was surprised and told him, rather ironically, that, of course, it would be an honor, but I was afraid my boyfriend would not be happy about our cultural tete-a-tete, but if he wished to invite him, there would be no problem." Harvey didn't like that, says Katya, so instead he gave her his number and over the next few months whenever their paths wold cross at junkets, he would remind her to call him. But it was at the Venice Film Festival in 2004 that Katya says she got the full Weinstein. Related: France's Got Talent Judge Accused Of Sexual Misconduct Against NINE Women, Including A 14-Year-Old! He invited her after a screening of Finding Neverland to discuss an idea he had for modern Russian writers. Katya thought it was legit since he was a publisher as well -- but again she refused to meet with him alone in his room, instead telling him to meet her at the Excelsior hotel cafe, a public place full of industry professionals. When she got there, Harvey's assistant showed up instead saying he wasn't feeling well, so could she meet him upstairs. She was hesitant but "the assistant said that he would be joining us, so I went up." That's when the assistant "instantly disappeared," and Katya met the real Harvey: "I was frozen into immobility like a statue, because a well-known producer with whom I've come to discuss modern Russian writers, was in a bathrobe." Ugh. He apparently told her his masseuse was late but that they could have fun while he waited. She also remembers him saying: "'You will love it. I'm a guru in this matter. You never met a man like me.'" Though she doesn't know if he meant massage or not. She says she wondered if the press junket down the hall would hear her screams when she was saved "like a scene from a bad movie" when a waiter returned to the room with a bucket of champagne. She used the opportunity and made a swift exit. She saw Harvey again around a decade later at Cannes, when the two were introduced by a mutual acquaintance who didn't know they had met. She says she was nervous but recalls: "But Harvey, acting as if nothing had happened, kissed my hand and said quietly so that only I could hear: 'Don't even think about saying anything. Forget all about it. Be a smart girl.'" She never did say anything. But she is now. And so are a lot more women. [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»
