6. She Has the Largest (Living) Army in the World

All this talk of birthrights, having a good heart, and walking through fire is good and all, but when it comes to brass tax, winning is a numbers game. Mashable has a helpful infographic that puts things into perspective, showing that of all the standing armies running around Westeros, the one led by Daenerys is by far the strongest. The totals work out to around 60,000 Dothraki, 8,000 Unsullied, and 3 dragons. (Some even say the Dothraki reach 100,000.) In second and third place are the slightly smaller yet less no impressive fleets of the Tyrells (though they may have been completely wiped out, we’re not entirely sure) and Martells, both of whom you might recall, have sided with Khaleesi. Add in what’s left of the Ironborn, and a couple thousand Second Sons in the reserves, and Dany’s army is awe-inspiringly massive. The Lannisters, on the other hand, have around 30,000 fighters by best estimates, and the North some 10,000, though there’s a good chance the latter will end up fighting by her side too. Like we said, digits don’t lie.

Of course, if we’re talking solely in numbers, the White Walkers have the clear advantage with infinity. But when your potentially greatest weakness (i.e. dragons) is your opponent’s greatest strength (i.e. dragons), your army of undead don’t look so hot cold anymore. That is unless they aren’t affected by their fire and somehow manage to zombify the dragons, in which case – RUN!

5. She Has the Most Well Rounded Army in the World

Given the events of Season 7’s first couple of episodes, Daenerys may not have the same army she did when first arriving on the shores of Dragonstone. But still, what she has got is a tour de force of awesome. No matter how bad things may seem at the moment, remember that the night is always darkest right before a dragon burns all your enemies to death.

Even discounting the three large Charizards flying about, the battalion Khaleesi has unleashed is unlike any other the armies of Westeros have ever seen. Each of the highly trained Unsullied might as well count as 10 warriors in one, minus their baby makers. The sight of a horse ridden horde of Dothraki with their feral screams and massive chesticles is enough to make the most steadfast of soldiers pee their codpieces. Add into the mix the well-established Westerosi armies of whatever remains of the Martells and Tyrells, the behind-the-scenes meddling of Varys and his ring of spies, the remnants of the seafaring Ironborn, the potential sorcery of the Red Woman, and the stratagem of the Little Lion, and you have a group of fighters both experienced and unpredictable, able to pounce from the air, ground, sea, shadows, and whatever other realms the war wages on.

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”

Trump’s Net Worth Plummets By $600 Million

 

As much as Donald Trump loves to brag about how rich he is, turns out he’s a lot less wealthy than he was a year ago.

Forbes magazine has just released their annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans has some very bad news for the Donald: His net worth has fallen drastically by $600 million, meaning he’s only worth an estimated $3.1 billion. That drops him 92 spots on the Top 400 list, from #146 to #248.

Ouch!

What led to the sudden drop in Trump’s worth? Forbes notes:

“A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.”

Ironically, America’s richest people are richer than they were in 2016, but not Trump.

For the 24th year in a row, Bill Gates tops the list, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion. Here’s the rest of the top 10:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon, $67 billion
  • Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, $65.5 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, $55.5 billion
  • Larry Ellison, Oracle, $49.3 billion
  • Michael Bloomberg, Bloomberg LP, $45 billion
  • Charles Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • David Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • Larry Page, Google, $48.5 billion
  • Sergey Brin, Google, $37.5 billion

And Trump fared even worse on the Bloomberg’s worldwide billionaires list, which rates his worth at $2.86 billion. That doesn’t even qualify him to be named as one of the 500 richest people in the world.

Trump Just Spread This Horrible Lie About the Last Few Presidents

 

ust a day after Donald Trump’s controversial blatantly false remarks that former President Barack Obama and the other presidents didn’t call the families of soldiers killed in action ignited the internet, the president is at it again. At a radio event at the White House, Trump doubled-down on his comments, telling Fox News Radio host Brian Killmeade, “I mean, you could ask General [John] Kelly did he get a call from Obama. You could ask other people. I don’t know what Obama’s policy was.”

By General John Kelly, Trump was referring to his beleaguered chief of staff, who tragically lost his son in 2010. First Lieutenant Robert Michael Kelly was leading a unit when he stepped on a concealed explosive device.

Kelly – *understandably* – didn’t comment on Trump’s allegations, and while former White House aides can’t remember Obama calling him, they do remember that the former president did something even better than call…
