Végleg elege lett Trumpból a republikánusok erős emberének

Egy hete az amerikai sajtó szinte folyamatosan „breaking news” állapotban van. Azóta, hogy a Donald Trump és szövetségesei által feltüzelt tömeg megtámadta az amerikai törvényhozásnak helyt adó Capitolium épületét, miközben bent a képviselőház tagjai a Joe Biden elnökségét biztosító elektori szavazatok hitelesítéséről voksoltak volna. Az emberéleteket követelő incidens, valamint a háttérben zajló és egyelőre nem csituló koronavírus-járvány mellett azonban mégis volt egy hír, amely egy időre ki tudott emelkedni a többi közül. A New York Times (NYT) magyar idő szerint kedd késő este arról írt, hogy értesülései szerint Mitch McConnell, a szenátus republikánus többségének vezetője is úgy gondolja, hogy Trump a hívei hergelésével elegendő okot szolgáltatott a vádeljárás, az úgynevezett impeachment elindítására. Az ...

New Senate report to detail security failures on January 6 but will fuel fight for probe over Trump's role

Two Senate committees plan to release a flurry of recommendations in a thorough 100-page-plus report about what went wrong on January 6, but they will stop short of examining former President Donald Trump's role in the run-up to the attack on the US Capitol, which is likely to fuel the partisan debate about whether further investigation is needed.

Mitch McConnell's arc of Trump doesn't bend toward justice

Nothing describes the arc the Republican Party has traveled over the past few months better than the journey of Sen.

Tarantino is a Scorsese által ajánlott filmeket nézi a karantén alatt

A lassan egy éve tartó koronavírus-járvány alatt a legtöbb időt otthon töltöttük, így nem csoda, hogy megugrott a különböző streamingszolgálatók nézettsége. Orrba-szájba nézzük a filmeket és sorozatokat, Martin Scorsesével és Quentin Tarantinóval egyetemben. Scorsese össze is állított egy közel ötven brit filmet tartalmazó listát, melyet megnézésre ajánlott Tarantinónak és Edgar Wright rendező-forgatókönyvírónak (Nyomd, Bébi, nyomd, Világvége), írja az Indiewire. Wright és Tarantino a The Empire Film Podcast című műsorban beszéltek erről, akik otthoni filmklubokat tartottak. Nagyon szép. Olyan módon tartottuk a kapcsolatot, mint a cinephilek. A járvány kevés áldásainak egyike az volt, hogy el tudtunk tűnni órákra otthon – mondta Wright. Edgar szociálisabb, mint én. Nagy dolog, hogy az elmúlt 9 hónapban beszéltem vele ...
