‘House Of Cards’ Posts 4th Of July Message From New POTUS Claire Underwood Played By Robin Wright

Courtesy/Netflix

On a perfectly timed day to get people intrigued into the sixth and final season of the Netflix hit series, House of Cards, the streaming service tweeted a video message teasing its season expected to bow later this year.

In it, Robin Wright stars as the President of the United States, Claire Underwood, who simply states:  “Happy Independence Day…to me.”  That is followed by the hashtag cleverly stating #MyTurn.

Production of the Netflix drama began earlier this year, while Season 5 came to a conclusion with Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) stepping down as POTUS and Claire taking his place.

As the events unfolded off-screen since the season 5 finale: due to the sexual assault allegations against Spacey from several men, and one from actor Anthony Rapp, that promted the series to fire Spacey for good.  The future of the final season was up in the air, until it was decided to move forward with Robin Wright at its epicenter.

Wright will be joined by a great line-up of castmates including: Greg Kinnear, Diane Lane,Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and more.

Watch the presidential message below. Then let us know, are you excited to see the new season of House of Cards featuring soap alum, former Santa Barbara star, Robin Wright as POTUS?  Comment below.

Off and on I’d tune into House Of Cards, but I never cared for it. Anyways- great to see a woman president even if by fiction.

Sadly I think the show should have ended once it was revealed to the world what a disgusting and perverted and predatory man Kevin Spacey was. In general, all the talk will be about how better or worse the show is without Kevin or ROBIN/Clare VS Kevin/Frank.

If Clare wasn’t made a true irredeemable character with that murderast season, I could move past Kevin Spacey being on the show to Robin Wright’s Clare showing how “women do it different. Do it better”. Sadly, Clare is as selfish, as power hungry, indefensible, pyschopathic, and murderous as Frank ever was.

The series needs to end with Clare being led out in handcuffs otherwise it just goes to prove a true point:

Whether male or female, once real power is out in either their hands “IT WILL CORRUPT AND IT WILL DESTROY ALL THOSE AROUND IT AND HOLDING IT”

The best House of Cards is the British version from a few years ago with Ian Richardson. Really good as only the Brits do it. I really liked Robin Wright as Buttercup in “Princess Bride,” one of my favorite movies. She plays a “strong” woman in it as well. But not as evil, or conniving. Coincidentally several of other actors from the film will be coming to my annual sci-fi comic show that I go to every year. Like Vizzine “inconceivable.” And Wesley. Sounds like needed fun.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.
