Cuties is the latest release from Netflix. According to Netflix it is a “social commentary” about the sexualization of young girls. It depicts underage girls twerking and touching themselves highly suggestive ways. The film has received widespread condemnation.
“Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children,” a Netflix spokesperson said. “It’s an award-winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up — and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie.”
The movie follows the story of a Sudanese girl trying to escape her repressive Muslim family by joining a twerking troupe.
Netflix acquired the movie earlier this year after it was well-received at the Sundance Film Festival.
The President has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice. Firstly for his work in fascinating a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and also for his work between Kosovo and Serbia.
Magnus Jacobson a member of the Swedish parliament who nominated him said, “I have nominated the US Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House,” he wrote in English on Twitter. “Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace.”
“This is a hard-earned and well-deserved honor for this president,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday. “Career politicians merely talk about the kind of results that this president has achieved on the world stage.”
The President was nominated in 2018 for his work between North and South Korea.
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton has rejected claims that Trump called fallen World War 1 veterans “losers”. Bolton said in response to the story, “I was there” and “I didn’t hear that.”
The Atlantic story also claims Trump cancelled a trip, in 2018, to the site where soldiers from the battle of Belleau Wood are buried, claiming he didn’t want to ruin his hair. However, four different sources have been revealed saying the trip was cancelled due to bad weather.
The Atlantic story by Jeffery Goldberg entitled “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’.” Was complied from sources who were all anonymous.
Bolton has been an adversary of the President since leaving the administration, but has criticized the media for their false reporting of this story.
A bill that would remove the requirement for offenders to register if they have had relations with a minor where the age difference is 10 years or less has passed by houses. And has been sent to Gov. Newsom’s desk.
“If signed into law, a 24-year-old could have sexual relations with a 15-year-old child without being required to register as a sex offender,” Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove tweeted Tuesday.
State Senator Scott Wiener, who introduced the bill, claims it treats LGBT sex offenders the same as heterosexual ones. As a similar law already exists for a sexual offence involving vaginal sex.
Donald Trump Jr has attacked Joe Biden’s record on Free Trade claiming that Biden has shipped more jobs to China than anyone else.
“[Biden] has shipped more jobs to China than probably any human being alive,” said Trump Jr. in reference to the former vice president’s “entire voting record on trade.”
Trump Jr went on to attack Biden’s portrayal of himself as a blue collar guy, saying: “Watching today’s media try to run this guy as though he’s going to be good for the blue collar worker when he’s literally decimated the middle class — the manufacturing sector of America — is truly amazing, and one of the things that has to be highlighted especially in the swing States.”
He went on to claim that Hunter Biden’s business activities were illegal and that the Biden family had benefited from their father’s position in Washington.
“If I was doing the stuff that [Hunter Biden] was doing I’d be in jail, right now,” said Trump Jr. “I call it the Biden Crime Family, because that’s what it is. If I took 1.5 billion from the Chinese government, it would be a really, really big story.”
A pregnant woman was arrested by police in front of her two children for an anti-lockdown post on Facebook. Police arrested Zoe-Lee Buhler, 28, in Victoria, after she posted about an anti-lockdown protest in the State. Buhler was released on bail.
The police defended the arrest saying that public gatherings have been banned in the State as part of the lock down restrictions.
However, human rights organisations have criticised the move.
“Arresting people pre-emptively for the act of organising peaceful protests or for social media posts is something that happens all too often under authoritarian regimes, and it should not be happening in a democracy like Australia,” said Elaine Pearson of Human Rights Watch.
Australian police also have come under fire for the heavy-handed dealing of a woman who was not wearing a mask in public. It later turned out she had a medical exemption.
The number one influence on people is media, and I blame media as a whole for the myopic mindset that the American people have, as a whole, rabidly adopted.
If media would consistently report evenhandedly, as professional journalism requires, we would be living in a completely different political and social climate.
But it’s all about click bait and who says something before anyone else. It’s driven the populace a little crazy. To think any one guy will turn that around is a bit naive. It will take us, the people, to demand the media report responsibly.
For example, after the embarrassment of the last election reporting Hillary ahead by miles and slam dunk winning long before one vote was cast showed glaring bias and outright lying, we should have demanded resignations and not just rolled over.
Now we at another election cycle. Same cast and crew.
Accurate reporting is nowhere to be found. It’s just….What have they been told to say now? Zero cred on both sides. So the people would be better off flying blind then being mislead.
But we can’t get away from media overreach.
Until journalism returns to valuing personal and professional integrity, maybe fines for lying may be in order.
Hey, that might balance the budget in a day or two!!
