“I’ll release the captured children if you give me $ 30 billion for me to build a border wall that I once promised you Mexico would pay for.”

It is a golden age to “Be Best” at a Laura Ingraham “summer camp”.

Missing DHS/HHS children now reach the same numbers as Puerto Rico death toll.

Private prison companies are using empty box stores as “detention centers”.

America has sustained a refugee crisis that profits the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC),

How better to, as Trump tweeted today, handle the “illegal immigrants (that) …pour into and infest our country”.

Federal officials acknowledged last month that nearly 1,500 unaccompanied minors arrived on the southern border alone without their parents and were placed with sponsors who did not keep in touch with federal officials, but those numbers were only a snapshot of a three- month period during the last fiscal year.

“There is a lot more,” said a field specialist who worked in the Office of Refugee Resettlement until earlier this year and was tasked with reaching out to sponsors and children to check on their well-being. “You can bet that the numbers are higher. It doesn’t really give you a real picture.”

The new estimate comes as backlash widens over President Donald Trump’s’ decision to separate parents and children. Advocates argue the growing numbers of unaccounted children should be expected as families and sponsors become more fearful of federal officials that is now using information from government social workers to run immigration checks and, in some cases, target sponsors, including parents and family members, for removal.

The stocks of the two biggest private prison operators — CoreCivic (formerly know as Corrections Corp. of America) and Geo Group — have doubled since election day. CoreCivic (CXW) is up 140% since Trump won in November; Geo Group (GEO) has risen 98%.

For all the talk about how good Trump has been for big banks like Goldman Sachs, he’s been even better for private prison investors.

The reason private prisons are back in vogue is simple: Trump has made sweeping promises to crack down on crime and illegal immigration. Wall Street calculated quickly that Trump’s rhetoric is likely to translate into more people behind bars. And that means more profits for private prisons.

 Welcome to Laura Ingraham's profit center summer camp

Imagine being 10 years old, separated from your mother or father, not understanding why, and being taken to a hulking, windowless building filled with 1,500 other kids you’ve never met.
You’re allowed to make two phone calls a week — one of which hopefully is to a detained parent now thousands of miles The kids we saw, for the most part, looked content. No crying, no one slouched in a corner alone. But this was also a media tour, and journalists weren’t allowed to interview any of the children. Who knows what happens when the lights go out and they’re left alone with their thoughts? abcnews.go.com/…

Dr. Dre Is Making A Movie About Legendary Soul Singer Marvin Gaye

DrDreMarvinGaye Dr. Dre Is Making A Movie About Legendary Soul Singer Marvin Gaye

Dr. Dre is working on a movie about the late singer Marvin Gaye. The rapper, whose film credits include 2015’s “Straight Outta Compton,” on which he served as producer and inspiration for the film, is in the early stages of getting the project off the ground. And rights to use Gaye’s music have been secured, according to sources. Sony/ATV Music Publishing is home to Gaye’s songwriting credits.

There have been multiple attempts to give Gaye the biopic treatment. The soul singer behind such hits as “What’s Going On,” “Sexual Healing,” and “Let’s Get It On” became one of Motown’s most successful artists before he was fatally shot in 1984 at age 44 by his father following a family dispute in their Los Angeles home. F. Gary Gray, Cameron Crowe, James Gandolfini, Scott Rudin, and actors including Jesse L. Martin and Lenny Kravitz all have tried to bring Gaye’s story to the screen, but until now, none had been authorized by Gaye’s family.

The most recent project to get the sign off from the Gaye estate was with Jamie Foxx who landed the rights for a limited series in 2016 but that project has seen no movement in the years since.

As for Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, the hip-hop legend has dabbled in feature projects both in front of the camera, in films like “Training Day” and “Car Wash,” as well as producing. His most recent film credit was “Straight Outta Compton,” which chronicled the rise of his hip-hop group N.W.A and was produced by Dre and fellow N.W.A member Ice Cube. The pic was a massive hit and also scored an Oscar nomination for original screenplay.

In a curious twist of fate, Dre is represented by King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano, the same legal firm which defended Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams against the Gaye estate in the closely-monitored “Blurred Lines” trial in 2015. The verdict found in favor of the Gaye family, which contended that “Blurred Lines” infringed on Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give It Up” and ordered Thicke and Williams to pay millions in statutory damages.

On Friday, with Fox & Friends on the WH lawn, Trump met people he loves, erect and at attention

 On Friday, with Fox & Friends on the WH lawn, Trump met people he loves, erect and at attention

The stench of cowardice and corruption of this generation of elected GOP officials will linger for decades. That no one will stand against the lies, lawlessness, cruelty, corruption, irrationality and just plain old fashioned idiocy of TRUMP and say ENOUGH! Is a profound disgrace

Tiffany Haddish Details Brief Feud With Tracy Morgan

TiffanyHaddish Tiffany Haddish Details Brief Feud With Tracy Morgan

Tiffany Haddish isn’t bothered by what appeared to be shade by fellow comedian and The Last O.G. co-star Tracy Morgan recently.

In her cover story with The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday (June 13), the triple threat opened up about her adored career and the many lessons she’s learned along the way. One was knowing her artistic worth, which caused a bit of tiff on the set of the TBS comedy The Last O.G. 

Booked before the release of Girls Trip, Haddish plays the role of Shay, Tray’s (Morgan) former girlfriend whose life has evolved during Tray’s time in prison.

As he hilariously navigates through a gentrified Brooklyn 15 years later, he also tries to win over his former flame. As her brand grew, expectations for her to bust out “She Ready-isms” as Shay came with it, which she refused to do. She also shared how her relationship with Morgan changed as well.

While doing promo for the Vulture Festival in May, Morgan took part in an interview where he brushed off a question about his co-star. “We’re not gonna go there,” he said. “Because this isn’t Tiffany’s show. This is Tracy Morgan. This is The Last O.G. If you’re going to go there, ask that about Tiffany, ask that about Cedric [The Entertainer], ask that about Kraft services, everyone that comes to work on that show. I don’t like that.”

The series was thought of years ago by Morgan and with the help of Jordan Peele, became a reality as the first season wrapped earlier this month.

As comedians like Lil Rey Howery came to Haddish’s defense on social media, the comedian shared how it didn’t bother her.

“You guys, chill. He’s probably just tired of hearing my name,” she said. “It’s exhausting. I’m tired of hearing my name. I could see how that could be irritating, like, ‘Hello, I died, people. I’m back from the dead. Tiffany’s cool, but it’s me sitting here now.’ So, I get it, I’m not mad about it, I love me some Tracy.”

During a sit down with the Associated Press in April, Morgan and Haddish were candid about their unique chemistry. “I already knew that she was a tough cookie before I got to the set,” he said. “That’s what made me pick her [for the role].”

Haddish hinted towards their artistic differences but explained how her ideas were always respected. “You’re able to give more input on how you feel about the character, what you think this should be, or that should be and your point of view of respected,” she said. “It may not be what we do, but it’s respected.”

Haddish and Morgan will reunite with the rest of the cast this summer to film season two of the comedy.

On This Day In Comedy… In 1937 ‘Good Times’ Actor John Brown (Bookman) Was Born!

JohnnyBrown On This Day In Comedy… In 1937 ‘Good Times’ Actor John Brown (Bookman) Was Born!

On this day in comedy on June 11, 1937, Actor, John “Johnny” Brown was born in St. Petersburg, Florida

Brown established himself professionally as a Broadway performer in the Sammy Davis, Jr. musical, Golden Boy.  He played the part of Ronnie and was featured in one of the show-stopping numbers.    Once he got that attention he landed the lead in a high profile national commercial for Papermate’s Write Brothers pen.    Brown-headed the musical number where he had the role of the teacher showing his students why they should use the Write Brothers pen.  He also found film work in the movie The Out of Towners in 1970.

Known for his amiable persona, quick wit and easy-going comedy style, Brown soon found himself on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In.    That gig turned out to be a career break and killer.   Norman Lear had originally considered Brown to play the part of Redd Foxx’s son Lamont in Sanford and Son, but because of his Laugh-In commitment, Lear had to look elsewhere and cast Demond Wilson.      

Brown earned his sitcom success on Good Times.  The CBS Esther Rolle / John Amos vehicle was a smash hit and the character of building superintendent, Bookman, was a standout.    That wasn’t easy with Jimmie Walker stealing most of the show. Walker’s scenes were always guaranteed extra laughs though, whenever Bookman entered the apartment and became the butt of a lot of fat boy, big butt jokes.   However, Bookman also knew how to issue out jokes too and managed to often give as good as he got.

Once Good Times was canceled in 1979, Johnny Brown made the guest-starring rounds.   He’d been seen previously on The Flip Wilson Show and he also did The Jeffersons, Family Matters, Martin and The Jamie Foxx Show.    Johnny Brown later appeared in the Eddie Murphy / Martin Lawrence film, Life in 1999.
