The Top Gun sequel is set for release next June, but all is not right with Maverick. It seams the producers have bent the knee to strongman Xi Jinping in Beijing. On Twitter, Globe and Mail reporter Mark MacKinnon noted that the Top Gun: Maverick trailer features Maverick’s iconic leather jacket; however, the new rendition removed the original Japanese and Taiwanese flag patches. MacKinnon later revealed that China’s Tencent Pictures is one of the main producers of the new Top Gun which explains the change.



Thoughtful political opinions add to the appeal of Miss America contestants. That is, unless they are anything right of Bernie Sanders. On July 18th, Pro-Trump Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu claimed that she had her title revoked for refusing to wear a hijab and for tweeting “insenstive” political statistics.



While you were enjoying your weekend, the identity politics wars were heating up. If you’re waking up on Monday with your head spinning, it’s probably because you’re seeing headlines about a new African American 007, Scarlett Johansson taking a modest stand against PC culture and then being forced to walk it back (while bashing white males, of course) and about the outrage mob smearing Rihanna for looking a little too ethnic in a Chinese edition of Harper’s Bazaar.



Carmen Yulín Cruz, the radical separatist Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, made yet another appearance on Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto. Watch as Cruz, national co-chair for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, minimizes host Jorge Ramos’ recent arbitrary detention in Venezuela while attempting to dance around her failure to condemn the brutal dictatorships in Cuba and Venezuela.



The left have cheered Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) rise in the polls after the Democrat debates. Now they have pronounced her Wall Street’s choice for the 2020 presidential election. Bloomberg reporters Lananh Nguyen and Tyler Pager on July 3 praised Warren for drawing support from a “small but growing circle of senior bankers and hedge fund managers” on Wall Street. They presented Warren as an “acceptable alternative” to left-leaning Wall Streeters, in contrast to the candidates who “trigger their most visceral objections.” Of course, those candidates were President Donald Trump and democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).



Coming off a high-earning debut the first week of July, the newest Marvel blockbuster, Spiderman: Far From Home, shows that the Spidey franchise still has plenty of gas left in it. However, should the public’s affinity for the wallcrawler start to cool, series star Tom Holland broached some ideas that may inject new life. If you guessed a sexual and racial reorientation, then kudos. You’ve been paying attention.



Pop sweetheart Miley Cyrus’ new video for her song “Mother’s Daughter” is intended to be a new age anthem of female expression and freedom. Is it any wonder that it comes off as completely unnerving and a little hellish? Ms. Cyrus’ ode to feminism and inclusivity is a bad acid trip of strange sexuality, including blood red latex, teeth-lined female codpieces, wheelchair bound trans women, aggressive gyrating, and quotes such as “Virginity is a social construct.”



In a promo for Telemundo’s post-debate coverage, the network suggests that the Democratic nominee, whomever that might be, will “best represent Latinos” against President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election.



The nation’s most prominent Spanish-language evening news anchor is, arguably, also its most prominent advocate for open borders; and he isn’t shy about using his many platforms and bylines in furtherance of that goal.



Unfunny lefties have taken over the world of comedy and left it for dead, but all hope is not lost. For the few right-leaning comedians brave enough to step up to the stand-up mic, business is booming. According to a Hollywood Reporter article from last week’s issue, conservative comedians are opening up to sold out crowds as people grow tired of tedious late-night propaganda shows.



Univision anchor Jorge Ramos shields Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) from her remarks comparing immigrant detention centers to Nazi concentration camps, in what is his most recent and most blatant instance of AOC fandom. If you thought that last week’s effusive praise of AOC’s appearance on ABC’s This Week was the apex of media cheerleading then you, dear reader, thought wrong.



Madonna seems to enjoy showing off her ignorance of Christian beliefs. Last week, the self-proclaimed “Israelite” singer asserted that Jesus would be pro-abortion. Last night, the “Like A Virgin” singer posted a picture of herself -- wearing nothing but a black lace bra and fishnets -- with a statue of the Virgin Mary on her Instagram. The Virgin covered Madonna’s cleavage.
