Rebel Buzz: “Space Force” comic, Argento's denials, and an uplifting story from an unlikely place

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

If you're a Trump supporter and a comic book/graphic novel person, you're going to love this!

Chuck Dixon is a comic book writer known for his work on the Marvel character The Punisher, DC's Batman, Nightwing and Robin, and his creation of the supervillain Bane.

Dixon is writing a new comic book series called Trump's Space Force. Its funding campaign was launched on Indigogo with a $15,000 goal, but it's already raised over $60,000, with 1,289 backers thus far.

What can readers expect?

"A malevolent threat from beyond the stars has infiltrated the upper echelons of world governments. Their purpose: to prepare Earth for invasion. Join President Trump & the United States Space Force aboard the USSF James Marshall as they travel beyond Earth, leading from the front to combat this threat head on!"

James Delingpole writes:

"It’s like a mash-up of Aliens, Independence Day and Starship Troopers with a bit of anime (Robotech; Star Blazers), and features all your favorite characters from the Magaverse (Scott Adams; Sebastian Gorka; and, obviously, the Donald…) wiping out aliens and Making Space Great Again."

I'm not even a comic book fanatic and I'm going to buy in...

Asia Argento was one of the original accusers of Harvey Weinstein. She's been a loud voice throughout this minimal and pseudo cultural cleansing phenomenon in Hollywood known as #MeToo.

It recently came to light that she allegedly had an illicit and illegal relationship with a child actor, Jimmy Bennett, who was 17 at the time. In order to suppress a lawsuit or a publicity nightmare, Bennett was paid $380,000.

Since all of this became public knowledge, Argento has denied the claims — and purports that it was actually her (late) former boyfriend Anthony Bourdain who paid off Bennett.

However, according to TMZ, Argento admitted to the encounter in text messages, and a photo shows the two of them in bed together.

So now she's alleging that this, "horny kid jumped" on her, and was "on top of her" while she was "frozen."

Look, when you lie about one thing, it makes people question everything else you say...

Finally, because I always like to close out the week with an uplifting story to send you into the weekend:

As you all know, we are facing historic fires here in California, particularly the Carr fire near Redding. That one alone has burned 229,651 acres and destroyed over 1,000 homes.

But we're getting help from around the world, specifically from American Samoa.

When Jack Potter Jr., chairman of Redding Rancheria, received word that they would be coming, he contacted neighboring tribes to see if they would be interested in helping him welcome the firefighters. Of course, they were elated to assist.

On August 14, 22 firefighters from Somoa Unit 61 arrived and were blessed by the presence of other tribe members greeting them.

In response, the grateful men broke out in song. Potter said:

When they harmonized, you just felt that spirit connection to the song. The natives were like, "Whoa." I find this so uplifting. These firefighters sing this song before, during and after fighting fires. They have to be exhausted but this is their way of offering gratitude. What a beautiful and gracious gesture!

- In the information age those who control the space above the earth control the earth below it. Don’t believe it? Go without everything & every business that requires satellites. That’s just one aspect of this.

- The inventor of the #MeToo movement has been brought down by it. Too funny. Has any conservative taken a hit from this movement? Hey Argento, saying “I didn’t know they were underage” doesn’t work for men either.

- Great to see the Somoans are helping out. Good for them. It shows they’re good people.
