Jimmy (Jefferson White) is hard at work on the 6666 Ranch as Paramount Networks Yellowstone season four episode seven gets underway. Over at the Yellowstone Ranch, John (Kevin Costner) warns Carter he needs to make things right with Beth. After all, shes the reason he has a place to live and food in his belly.

Elsewhere, Monica (Kelsey Asbille) briefly panics when she cant find Tate. She relaxes when she spots her son and his dad walking around outside. Their new furry family members spotted deer tracks and Kayce (Luke Grimes) gives Tate (Brecken Merrill) a lesson in how to read the deers movements.

Kayces decided hes going to put their dog to good use tracking the missing horses. Monica continues to be jealous about Kayce working for Miss Pouty Lips, but Kayce reminds her he works for the State of Montana not Avery. He digs a hole for himself by saying hell only work for unattractive women from now on, and Monica latches onto the fact he thinks Averys pretty.

Tates decided naming the dog Dog sucks pickled ass. His mom chastises him but changing the subject to the dogs name gives Kayce a reprieve. Tate tells his dad he owes him one after Monica walks away.

Carter brings Beth (Kelly Reilly) flowers and she accuses him of being one of those men who use gifts to say theyre sorry. She tells the boy she doesnt want his flowers and Carters about to walk away dejected when he changes his mind. He asks for a ride into town and explains hes decided to take his chances in foster care. Carter doesnt want to shovel barns and doesnt have any friends at the Yellowstone, so hes done.

Beth asks what he hopes to do with his life and he becomes emotional. I dont have any dreams, says Carter. Im too busy trying to figure out what Im going to eat and where Im going to sleep.

Beth lays down the law, telling Carter he needs to do what she says when she says it. Also, he cant lie and needs to ask questions if he doesnt understand something. Carter claims he can make that promise and keep it. They shake on it and Carter asks his first question. If he doesnt give a woman flowers when hes sorry, when should he give them?

You give them for no reason, buddy, replies Beth. No reason at all.

Back at the 6666, Jimmys summoned back to the main buildings where hes immediately given a sleeve to place over a horses penis. He struggles to keep the massive appendage in place and then realizes what hes doing. Needless to say, hes shocked his new job entails masturbating stallions.

Over at Jamies new place, his former girlfriend Christina (Katherine Cunningham) chats with his biological dad, Garrett (Will Patton), while Jamie (Wes Bentley) spends time with his baby boy. Garrett thinks Jamies going to be a good dad, but Christinas doubtful given that John Dutton raised him. Garrett believes Jamie learned how not to father from John but is capable of change.

Garrett reveals part of his plan, planting the seed that Jamie would make a good governor.

Beth puts in her first appearance at Market Equities and isnt impressed with how theyve decorated her corner office. She wants everything removed and informs her assistant, Cal, that not only will she design it herself, but he should also probably stop sleeping with the receptionist and find a new job.

Im 0 for 3 with assistants anyway, says Beth. Turns out working for me is pretty f**king dangerous. Cal has not idea how to respond and Beth makes it clear hes fired.

Beth puts in an appearance at a design meeting led by Ellis Steele in which a maps displayed showing all of the different phases of construction. Much of what is on the map isnt in Market Equities portfolio, and Beth asks to see an ownership map over the projected buildings. Shes told who owns specific properties isnt relevant, and she points out if the first stage is to build roads and sewers for all stages of development then ownership is definitely relevant.

Beths unable to hide her shock at seeing the area her familys called home for decades built into a 52-gate airport and resort town to rival Park City. The model of the area shows the development stretching miles beyond what was initially proposed, with dozens of high-rise buildings populating the design.

Ellis warns this is the first test of Beths loyalty.

Back at the Yellowstone, the cowboys are sorting through the cattle and Rip (Cole Hauser) informs John hes letting Walker and Lloyd take the day off to heal. Walker (Ryan Bingham) picks that moment to emerge from the barn ready to go to work. He looks a bit stiff, but Rip sends him off to help the men sort heifers.

John instructed Rip to fire all the women, but Teeter (Jen Landon) hasnt left yet and wants a word with John. John, who admits he cant understand a word that comes out of her mouth, rides over with Rip and Teeter pleads her case. She was always the first one up, never caused a problem, and was always the last to be done. Rip confirms no one works harder than she does, but when John asks if she ever got together with anyone in the bunkhouse, Teeter doesnt lie but does say she was never told she couldnt.

Johns about to dismiss her when Teeter shows the Yellowstone tattoo on her chest and asks if Yellowstone for life is all a lie. John sends her away for a minute and asks Rip when Teeter received her tattoo. Rip explains it was when they took care of that thing in the forest and Johns shocked hes just now been made aware that everyone involved now wears the ranchs brand.

Rip says it happened the night before the attack and reluctantly confirms Kayce knows about the new brands. John doesnt explicitly say Teeter is rehired, but Rip understands thats a given as John rides off.

Teeter gives Rip an awkward hug when he tells her to put her gear back in the bunkhouse. Shes relieved and overcome with emotions, and Rip tells her the brand does in fact mean something. (Rip never wanted to fire her but followed Johns orders without question, as always.)

Governor Lynelle Perry (Wendy Moniz-Grillo) shows up unexpectedly and John anticipates bad news when she asks him to walk with her. She announces shes running for the Senate because she believes thats where she can make a difference. Lynelle suggests Jamie would be the perfect candidate for governor, and Johns reaction is immediate and negative. He believes thats too much power for Jamie to handle, but Lynelle says hes the only one who wants the same thing for Montana that they do. Hes the devil they know.

Lynelle jokingly suggests shed back John if he made a play for the position and is stunned when he accepts her endorsement. John truly believes Jamie would be horrible and if hes the only option, then hell run for governor to avoid Jamie obtaining that much power.

Johns certain Jamie would destroy everything and Lynelle reminds him the press will cover him hard. John claims to be okay with that and wont even try to defend his past actions. He suggests Damn right I did it as his campaign slogan.

In other news, Beth spots Summer (Piper Perabo) among the protesters outside the J. R. Hall Master Furrier store. She decides to use Summer to help her fight Market Equities without letting Summer know what shes up to.

Beth tells Summer 15 people in front of a store yelling isnt changing anyones mind; Summers not actually making a difference.

This store is the caboose of the problem. The engine of the problem doesnt know you exist. This isnt saving the environment, sweetheart. This is just inflating your ego with very little effort, says Beth. She adds that Summer will eventually go away and yet the world will continue getting raped.

Summer falls into Beths trap by asking what Beth could possibly know about protecting the environment. Beth replies by describing the international airport going in just 15 miles outside a national park along with a massive ski resort. Condos and shopping plazas will disrupt the most fragile ecosystem in North America. Beth adds a few snarky comments about Summers mob of protestors while Summer, again, responds exactly as Beth planned. Beth proves she didnt make up anything about the airport or other developments while telling Summer a protest against it will take effort, strategy, sacrifice, and risk.

Beth explains its all about how much money people can make and no one involved cares about the animals that will be killed to build it.

Elsewhere, Mo (Mo Brings Plenty) and Kayce follow Kayces dog as he picks up the scent of the horses and follows their tracks. When Kayce says theyve just been calling the dog Dog, Mo says he does the same with his but in Lakota. Kayce likes that idea and asks if he can steal it, deciding Sunka is a better name than Dog.

When Kayce yells out Sunka, the dog stops and looks his way. Sunka, it is.

Sunka leads them to a pen in the middle of nowhere with a sign declaring its a Mustang Control Facility run by the US Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management. Kayce introduces himself and Mo to the officer guarding the pen, explaining the horses belong to the Confederated Tribes of Broken Rock. The officer claims theyre wild mustangs but Kayce points out wild mustangs dont have shoes and brands.

The officer agrees theres been a mistake and reveals they were about to be sold at auction. Mo produces proof the horses belong to the tribe and the officer says they can have them if they get them out before Friday. Itll be difficult because the area is inaccessible to trucks.

The days work is finished but Carters not done. Carter listens as Rip instructs him on the proper way to tie knots while Beth relaxes on the couch with a beer. Shes called up to the big house and Rip tells her to drive. He doesnt want her eaten by a bear and chuckles when she reminds him a bear knows better than to f**k with her.

John confesses hes lonely and that his great-grandfather built this house so his family could stay together. He also confesses he wants Rip and Beth to move in, and Beth says hell need to ask Rip himself. John would really rather she ask Rip but Beth refuses. If this is what John wants, he needs to ask not tell Rip himself.

Beths just about to leave when John informs her hes reluctantly running for governor to keep Jamie out of the position. Beth grabs him up in a big hug and is happy that now theyll control the narrative. She leaps into campaign mode and tells her dad to start dismantling everything Jamies done. However, John shuts her down pretty quickly when he asks that she help him find a way out of running. He doesnt want to leave the ranch for four years.

Beth reminds him the ranch will be there and that as governor hell have the power to shut the airport down and reverse state land grants. She runs down the list of everything hell be able to do if he wins and insists this is the way to save the ranch without selling.

John admits everything she said is true and Beth promises to help him with the campaign.

Lloyd (Forrie J. Smith) returns to the bunkhouse as everyones watching TV. Teeters teasing Colby and Laramies still there with Walker but when Lloyd arrives, they all stand and focus their attention on him. Earlier in the episode Lloyd pawned his one-of-a-kind belt buckle to replace Walkers guitar, and Walker takes a look at his new guitar and is impressed. Its better than his old one and Lloyd smiles in relief. (Why didnt Laramie leave when Rip told her to pack her stuff?)

Walker asks what Lloyd wants to hear and Lloyd doesnt care he just wants Walker to play a song. The bunkhouse is silent as Walker dedicates The Poet to Lloyd.

The following day Johns having a rough time figuring out how to ask Rip about moving up to the lodge. He blurts out, The lodge is where family belongs, and then realizes that doesnt sound like a question. Rip figures out what Johns asking and reminds him theyve got the stray kid. Johns fine with that but not stray dogs and Rip says he doesnt like dogs. (Rip, youre breaking my heart! Dont make me re-think my support of a Rip/Beth spinoff.)

Mo and Kayce gather a bunch of men and get the process of herding the stolen horses underway. As soon as the pens door is open, the horses race off and the men have a hard time keeping up. Fortunately, theyre heading in the right direction and the men are able to bring them home. The family cheers and Avery (Tanaya Beatty) smiles as Kayce suggests she get some trail cameras in case this happens again.

Thomas Rainwater (Gil Birmingham) thanks Kayce and says although this is a little victory, it mattered. Thomas chuckles as he warns Kayce to watch out for Avery.

Avery grabs a moment alone with Kayce and asks if he believes in love at first sight. He says thats how he felt about Monica. Avery confesses thats how she felt about him but Kayce believes it cant be love. God wouldnt let you love something that cant love you back, says Kayce.

Season four episode seven ends with Governor Perry hosting a press conference and Jamie mistakenly believing shes about to endorse him to run for governor while she runs for the Senate. Jamies confused to see John and Beth but is still taken completely by surprise when Perry announces shes endorsing John Duttons run for governor.

John steps in front of the press as Jamie pauses on the stairs to consider what just happened. John tells the assembled press that a war is being waged against their way of life as Beth whispers to Jamie, This is just the beginning.

John explains hes going to protect Montana and its land. If they get it, it will never look like our land again. That is progress in todays terms. So, if its progress you seek, do not vote for me. I am the opposite of progress. I am the wall that it bashes against and I will not be the one who breaks, declares John.

Nick Cannon has a tattoo of his late son Zen: ‘I forever have my son right here’ – ABC FOX Montana12.15.21

Nick Cannon has a tattoo of his late son Zen.

The 41-year-old actor and talk show host sadly lost his youngest child over the weekend when he passed away from brain cancer at just five months old, and Nick has now revealed hes honoured the tots memory with a new tattoo.

Nick unveiled the ink which depicts his son as an angel and is positioned on his ribs as part of his Pic of the Day segment in his eponymously titled talk show, and said he was glad to have his son with him forever now.

He said: "This is a week where I've seen so much love. More love than I've probably ever experienced so even in the midst of a loss, I gotta say thank you to y'all.

Last night, I got the opportunity to go get a tattoo of my son Zen as an angel on my rib.

I'm still all bandaged up and it hurts right here right now It was a lot of pain, but it was so well worth it. I enjoyed every moment of the experience to forever have my son right here as my rib, right here on my side, as my angel."

Nick first shared news of Zens passing on his talk show earlier this week, when he revealed the tot had an "invasive mid-line brain tumour".

He said: "Over the weekend I lost my youngest son to a condition called hydrocephalus that was pretty much a malignant, invasive mid-line brain tumour - brain cancer. It's tough."

Nick had Zen with model Alyssa Scott.

The TV star - who has six children from other relationships - spent the weekend in California with his son, explaining that "not only did we get to see the sun rise, we got to see the sun set".

He shared: "This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa, and then I had to fly back to New York for the show.

"I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen."

The Best New Knives and EDC of November 2021 – gearpatrol.com11.02.21

Variety is the spice of knife. There, I said it. Is that sentence a terribly cheesy pun? Yes. Is it inarguably true? Also, yes. You just have to take a look at the panoply of selections below to see what I mean.

After all, with our very broad definition of what constitutes a knife or an EDC item, a vast array of options continue to roll out on the reg. This month we have four different knives and multitools most notable for the how their handles and in some cases, their blades are adorned.

At the same time, we have three tools that pack loads of function into compact forms. Whether you're looking to pop a bottle, tackle some detailed engineered or change a mountain bike tire by the side of the trail, this stuff has you covered no groan-inducing wordplay required.

For its latest collection, Opinel teamed up with Jrmy Groshens, a young French tattoo artist who travels and works from a 1972 Digue camper called the Outdoor Tattoo Truck. Not surprisingly, the three eye-catching knives he designed including the lvation shown here are inspired by nature and tattoos. Bad news: the collection is sold out. Good news: a restock is coming mid-month, and you can sign up to be notified when it happens.


If there's anything cooler than a knife, it's an axe particularly one used for shredding. Gerber's new giveaway features both. One lucky winner will score the eye-popping results of a team-up between tattoo artist and designer Luke Wessman and country music star Tim Montana: a custom Fender American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe, as well as three American-made knives from the Gerber Custom program (two Fastballs and a Sedulo), plus a Pelican 1150 Protector Case. Two runners-up get everything but the axe. It's free to enter and the deadline is November 12th.


This holiday season brings new wrapping for a beloved mini multitool. This streamlined beauty features a blade, nail file, screwdriver, scissors and key ring, adorned with a tactile woven pattern in five metallic colors Brass Gold, Gentle Rose, Infinite Gray, Hazel Brown and Iconic Red. Pro tip: it makes a great little stocking stuffer.

Price: $44.99


Speaking of new wrapping, here's another Victorinox getting a seasonal treatment. The relatively loaded Climber Lite boasts 17 practical functions, including large and small blades, corkscrew, scissors, screwdrivers, a bottle opener, a multi-purpose hook and an LED flashlight. But this particular edition, limited to 10,000 pieces, also features a removable moon-shaped charm and scales festooned with stars, snowflakes and summits.

Price: $99.99


At a glance, you'd be forgiven for mistaking WESN's latest drop for a mutated paperclip. But this minimalistic 2.75-inch creation offers more than meets the eye. As you might guess, it has a bottle opener. This tool also packs a flathead screwdriver/scraper (lower right corner above) and a pry bar top. Pretty dang handy for something you can attach to your keychain and forget all about, until you need it.

Price: $40


Meanwhile, Wolf Tooth's latest offering is a veritable wonderland of indispensable bike tools. What you see above all condenses into one compact rectangle that's about the size of a small candy bar. But when needed, it separates into three multi-tools. The far left one features pliers, all kinds of screwdrivers, a spoke wrench, valve core wrench and more. The center one is a tire lever and rim dent remover. The one on the right boasts a chainbreaker, a utility knife and a tire plug inserter, plus space for tire plug inserts, a valve core and a spare blade. What else do ya need?

Price: $139


With more than two weeks of Kickstarter crowdfunding time left, this high-tech e-screwdriver has already raised more than 57 times its goal. For working on computers, gadgets, watches and frankly, other tools, it appears pretty handy and versatile. Highlights include four different modes, 28 multifunctional bits, the ability to magnetize and demagnetize depending on the project and a streamlined, ergonomic form factor about the size of a smartphone that easily fits in your pocket.

Miley Cyrus Pussy Tattoo Photo | Miley Cyrus New Tattoo …10.20.21

Miley Cyrus got a new tattoo, and its quite the shocker. The Wrecking Ball singer posted photos 24 hours ago on her Instagram of her at a tattoo parlor. Nothing says raw badass like a blurry picture of a girl getting inked, right? The newly married 26-year-olds shocking reveal was the tattoo that appeared on her ankle. Its official: Miley Cyrus has a pussy tattoo, and there are photos to prove it.You read that right. She tattooed the word pussy in black cursive ink on her ankle. Say what?

We now have a photo of the pussy tattoo from celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bangs Instagram story, thanks to Cosmopolitans digging. It was definitely the same day as the photos Cyrus posted herself because shes in the same outfit.

Instagram/Bang Bang NYC.

Cyrus seemed happy as a clam as she got what appeared to be a tattoo on left arm as well. She is rocking a hot red glossy lip and a black hat with a blank tank in the photos. Her grin and bear it expression is also giving us strong emoji vibes.

Apparently, the theory is Cyrus got these new tattoos over the summer but has just now decided to share them with her fans. One fan Instagram account, @everythingmiley, posted a behind-the-scenes video of Cyrus getting her tattoos. BTS footage of Miley getting tatted in NYC this past summer! the fan account wrote. I cant name one of her tattoos that isnt iconic. The fact that she got pussy tattooed on her ankle iconic. : @bangbangnyc@mileycyrus

So what does this new tattoo mean? Were not entirely sure. But Cyrus isnt new to the tattoo game. In fact, she had over two dozen tattoos in 2014, according to Bustle. But that was four years ago! Its safe to say she has well over 35 tattoos now. It all began when she got her first tattoo written on her rib cage that read, just breathe. The former Hannah Montana star was just 17 at the time.

Here she is at the 2013 MTV Music Awards wearing a revealing shirt that gives us just enough of a glimpse at her first tattoo.

She also has numerous tattoos on her hands. In fact, her right hand alone has seven tattoos: a heart, watermelon slice, peace sign, cross, evil eye, alien head and the wordBAD in red as a tribute to Michael Jackson.

Getty Images/Rob Foldy.

Cyrus tattoo number five was a very large dream catcher on the right side of her rib cage. A close source to Cyrus told People magazine about the meaning behind that fifthtattoo.Its a picture of the dream catcher that hangs over her bed with four feathers to represent her four brothers and sister, the source said. The dream catcher is to protect them. Aw! How sweet. She loves her family. And we love that.

Still cant quite figure out the meaning behind pussy. But not everything needs to be explained to her fans. We mean hey, shes just being Miley!

New Zealanders are the most tattooed people in the world. This is mostly due to the islands Mori, who still get traditional Polynesian tattoos.

In Soviet Russia, some prisoners would get tattoos of Lenin and Stalin. This was not a form of support, but in case they were sentenced to death, guards would not shoot them because it was illegal to shoot at images of their national leaders.

He has appeared in the films Born on the Fourth of July (1989), Posse (1993), 8 Seconds (1994), Threesome (1994), The Usual Suspects (1995), Bio-Dome (1996) and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas (2000). He also starred in the television series The Young Riders (198992) and as himself in the reality shows Celebrity Big Brother 7 (UK) and Celebrity Apprentice. In 2004, he directed Livin' It, a Christian-themed skateboarding DVD. He is the youngest of the four Baldwin Brothers.

Baldwin was born in Massapequa, New York, the youngest son of Carol Newcomb (ne Martineau) and Alexander Rae Baldwin, Jr., a high school social studies teacher and football coach.[2] Baldwin's elder brothers are actors Alec, Daniel and William, collectively known as the "Baldwin brothers". He was raised in the Catholic Christian faith.[3] In high school, Baldwin participated on the varsity wrestling team, along with William.[4] Baldwin has two sisters, Elizabeth Keuchler and Jane Sasso.[5] Baldwin attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.[6]

Baldwin began acting on television and made his film debut in The Beast. He starred in the western television series The Young Riders and in Threesome (1994).[7] Baldwin landed a breakthrough role in The Usual Suspects (1995) and played Barney Rubble in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas (2000). He participated in Celebrity Mole Hawaii, the first celebrity edition of The Mole in 2002. ABC broadcast the program in early 2003. Later that year, he returned for Celebrity Mole Yucatn, which ABC aired in early 2004. In 2006, Baldwin played a villainous thug in the television film Jesse Stone: Night Passage. In August 2007, Baldwin returned to television, when CMT cast him in Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge, one of nine celebrities cast.[8] In the first episode, Baldwin was injured in a bad fall from a wooden pontoon, breaking his shoulder blade and cracking a rib. Under doctor's orders, he left the show in the second episode. From January to March 2008, Baldwin appeared on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice on NBC. He finished fifth out of the 14 celebrity contestants. He and Trace Adkins became friends while competing on the show. In October 2008, Baldwin appeared in Adkins's music video, "Muddy Water". In March 2013, Baldwin returned to compete in All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. He was a contestant on the 2009 NBC reality show, I'm a CelebrityGet Me out of Here!.[9] Baldwin quit the show mid-season. On the second episode, he baptized The Hills actor Spencer Pratt. In 2019, Baldwin starred in a Filipino film, Kaibigan[10]

Baldwin resides in the village of Nyack, New York, with his wife, the Brazilian graphic designer Kennya Baldwin (ne Deodato), whom he met in 1987 and married in 1990. They have two daughters, Alaia and Hailey Baldwin; both are models. His father-in-law is Brazilian composer Eumir Deodato, and Canadian singer Justin Bieber is his son-in-law through marriage to his daughter Hailey.

In 2006, Baldwin launched a campaign to prevent an adult bookstore from opening in Nyack.[11] He has a tattoo on his left shoulder of the initials "HM" for Hannah Montana. He got the tattoo after making a pact with Miley Cyrus that he would be allowed to cameo on the show if he had the initials tattooed on him. He revealed the tattoo to Cyrus at a book signing in Nashville on November 10, 2008.[12] He was never given the opportunity to appear on the show and has since said that he regrets getting the tattoo.[13]

In June 2009, Baldwin's foreclosed $515,000, 1.4-acre home in Rockland County, New York was publicly auctioned after he and his wife defaulted on more than $824,000 in mortgage payments.[14] In July, Baldwin filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection claiming more than $2.3 million in debt. Court papers showed he owed $1.2 million on two mortgages on a New York property valued at only $1.1 million, more than $1 million in taxes and credit card debt.[15]

Baldwin was the first person to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house on January 3, 2010. The theme for this series was "Hell", with a devil head on the front door. He frequently taunted the head by saying "you're a loser". During his stay in the house, he frequently read passages from the Bible to his fellow housemates.[16] He failed to win many fans and was evicted on January 22, 2010, becoming the fourth housemate to be evicted. In a three-way voteagainst Ivana Trump and Sisqhe received 50% of the public vote.[17] After his eviction, the website, unsolicited by him, began soliciting cash donations to improve Baldwin's career.[18]

In December 2010, Baldwin filed a $3.8 million lawsuit against Kevin Costner over oil-separating technology that was used to help solve the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.[19] In June 2012, a jury sided with Costner and awarded Baldwin no damages. In March 2013, Baldwin pleaded guilty to failing to file income taxes for the years 2008, 2009, and 2010. He stated that he never intended to avoid paying taxes and that he had received bad advice from lawyers and accountants. Baldwin agreed to pay $300,000 within a year, or he would be sentenced to five years' probation and have five years to pay the money.[20][21]

In September 2006, Baldwin released his book titled The Unusual Suspect, which details highlights from his personal life, career, days of drug abuse and his turn to becoming a born-again Evangelical after the September 11 attacks in 2001.[22][23] In the same year, Baldwin, Mario D'Ortenzio and Bobby Brewer founded Breakthrough Ministry, which was designed to use extreme sports as a ministry via arena tours, called AsSalt Tours. The tours featured extreme sports celebrities, including Christian Hosoi. In 2007, Daniel Southern joined Baldwin as president of his ministry.[24]

In late 2008, Baldwin formed a for-profit organization called Antioch Ministry, which exists "to facilitate the gifts and calling of Stephen Baldwin."[25] In 2009, Baldwin and Southern launched a third ministry called Now More Than Ever, designed to reach enlisted men and women in the military around the world. In 2008, Baldwin teamed up with conservative talk-radio host Kevin McCullough to put together a Saturday radio show called Baldwin/McCullough Radio. As of April 18, 2009, the show aired on 213 stations and in more than 400 cities across the US and worldwide on Sirius 161 and XM 227.[26] Baldwin appears weekly on the show from the broadcast studios in New York City and from various locations around the country when he is traveling for other business purposes.

In 2007, Baldwin endorsed Sam Brownback for U.S. President.[27] After Brownback ended his campaign, Baldwin switched his support to Mike Huckabee.[28]

Baldwin was an outspoken advocate of the John McCainSarah Palin presidential ticket after Huckabee dropped out of the 2008 presidential election. The same year, Baldwin threatened to move to Canada if Barack Obama was elected and challenged the candidate to box for charity.[29]

In June 2011, Baldwin mentioned the possibility of entering New York City's 2013 mayoral election as an opponent of his brother Alec, who had suggested that he may run himself.[30]

Baldwin endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.[31]

Tony Montana – Wikipedia09.04.21

Character in Scarface

Antonio Montana is a fictional character and the protagonist of the 1983 film Scarface. He is portrayed by Al Pacino in the film and is voiced by Andr Sogliuzzo in the 2006 video game Scarface: The World Is Yours. Embodying the rise from the bottom to the top, Tony Montana has become a cultural icon and is one of the most famous movie characters of all time. In 2008, Montana was named the 27th Greatest Movie Character by Empire magazine.[1] He is partly based on Tony Camonte, the protagonist of the original novel and the 1932 film adaptation. According to Oliver Stone, Tony's last name was inspired by former NFL quarterback Joe Montana, Stone's favorite player. A prequel novel, Scarface: The Beginning, written by L. A. Banks, was published in 2006.[2][3] Montana also has a large scar on the side of his face, which explains why he is known as Scarface. Toni Montana is also mentioned as a strong fighter in Ali Sorena's album "Deer".[4]

Pacino insisted on taking the lead role as Tony Montana, although Robert De Niro had been offered it and had turned it down.[5][6] Pacino worked with experts in knife combat, trainers, and boxer Roberto Durn to attain the body type that he wanted for the role. Durn also helped inspire the character, who had "a certain lion in him", according to Pacino. Meryl Streep's immigrant character in Sophie's Choice (1982) also influenced Pacino's portrayal of Tony Montana. His co-star Steven Bauer and a dialect coach helped him learn aspects of the Cuban Spanish language and pronunciation.[7]

In May 1980, Tony is one of the 125,000 Cubans who after seeking refuge in the Peruvian Embassy, wound up on the Mariel boatlift to Miami. When he gets there, he is questioned by U.S. officials; he says that he was a "political prisoner" and that because he had an American father, he has the right to a green card. However, because of a trident-style tattoo on his right hand, which indicates that he was an assassin in prison, his request is denied.

Tony and his friend Manolo "Manny" Ribera are sent to "Freedomtown", a refugee camp that holds Cuban immigrants without green cards. After one month in the camp, Frank Lopez, head of a Miami drug cartel, offers to obtain green cards in return for murdering Emilio Rebenga. Soon after Rebenga arrives at the camp, Manny, Tony, and Angel Fernandez take advantage of the August 11 riot, where Tony stabs Rebenga. Tony and Manny are granted green cards and released, and the two get jobs as dishwashers for a small food stand in Little Havana. In August 1980, Frank sends his right-hand man, Omar Suarez, to offer them a job which pays $500 to each of Tony and Manny for a few hours work unloading a boat of its illegally smuggled marijuana cargo. While Manny is impressed with the offer, Tony demands more pay, and he and Omar quarrel. On the advice of his compatriot, Omar then offers Tony and Manny $5000 to buy cocaine from a new supplier, which is riskier than the marijuana deal but will pay much more, as it is dealing with violent Colombians.

A few days later, Tony, Manny, and their associates Angel and Chi Chi drive to a hotel in Miami Beach to make the deal with a group of Colombians. The deal goes bad; a couple of Colombian enforcers handcuff Tony and Angel to a shower pole at gunpoint, threatening to kill them with a chainsaw if Tony does not reveal the location of the drug money. Tony refuses to talk, and Hector, the enforcers' leader, dismembers Angel. Before Hector can do the same to Tony, Manny bursts in the room, shooting a machine pistol. A short gunfight ensues in which Manny is shot in the arm, and Tony kills the Colombians. Tony, Manny, and Chi Chi escape with the cocaine and the money. Tony, who no longer trusts Omar, takes it to Frank personally. Frank is impressed, and he and Manny end up working for him, during which time Tony takes an interest in Frank's girlfriend, Elvira Hancock.

Three months later, Tony pays a visit to his mother Georgina and younger sister Gina, neither of whom he has seen for five years. Gina is excited to see Tony, but his mother is ashamed of him, having long ago learned of his life of crime. When he gives his mother $1,000, his mother angrily rejects the gift and throws him out. Tony leaves, but Gina runs after him and hugs him, telling Tony she has been going to hairdressing school and helping out Mama. Tony says that a poor girl like Gina deserves to have a little fun; he slips her the $1,000 secretly and orders her not to tell Mama about it, only that Mama gets a little bit of it from time to time, through using some of it for grocery shopping or paying a utility bill.

Later, while in Bolivia, Tony and Omar go on Frank's behalf to see drug cartel lord Alejandro Sosa. Sosa has Omar killed for being a police informant and makes Tony his business partner. At The Babylon nightclub, Tony is shaken down by corrupt narcotics detective Mel Bernstein, who informs him he has evidence linking Tony to the murders of Rebenga and the Colombian drug dealers. Bernstein proposes to "tax" Tony on his transactions in return for police protection and information. Tony is convinced Frank sent Bernstein because only Frank would know details about the murders. While talking to Bernstein, Tony sees Gina dancing with a low-level drug dealer. Enraged, Tony beats the dealer and slaps Gina, stopping only after Manny calms him down. Manny drives Gina home and tells her she can do better than those lowlifes and that Tony is only looking out for her. However, when Gina admits an interest in Manny, he freezes, fearing Tony's wrath.

That night, two men attempt to kill Tony. He escapes and becomes convinced that Frank ordered his death. Armed with silenced pistols, Tony and Manny track Frank down to his car dealership, killing him and Bernstein. Afterward, Tony goes to Frank's house, telling Elvira that her lover is dead and that he wants her. Over the next year-and-a-half, Tony makes $75 million off of 2,000 kilograms of cocaine that he brings to America, and is soon making $1015 million every month in profits from his business relationship with Sosa. He marries Elvira and takes over Frank's empire, purchasing a large mansion as well as ornate luxuries such as a pet tiger. Tony also creates many legal businesses as fronts, including a hairdresser's managed by Gina. However, cracks in Tony's "American dream" begin to form as both he and Elvira become addicted to cocaine. Meanwhile, Manny and Gina begin dating behind her brother's back, afraid of Tony's wrath should he find out.

In February 1983, Tony is arrested for tax evasion and money laundering. Tony's lawyer, George Sheffield, tells him that although he can plea bargain away most of the time Tony faces, he will still end up serving at least three years in prison. Sosa calls Tony down to Bolivia and asks him for help assassinating a Bolivian anti-government activist, who is exposing Sosa's dealings with Bolivian leaders. In exchange, Sosa will use his contacts in the U.S. Justice Department in Washington, D.C., to keep Tony out of prison. After returning to Miami, Tony does not tell Manny about the hit, although Manny tries to talk Tony out of going to New York, simply citing a bad premonition he has about it. Not long after, Elvira leaves Tony for good after he insults her in a local restaurant. An intoxicated Tony starts yelling at the patrons: he tells them that they need people like him to blamea "bad guy".

Tony and Sosa's associate Alberto travel to New York to assassinate the activist. Alberto plants a bomb under the activist's car and is ordered to detonate it before the activist can implicate Sosa's criminal network in a speech at the United Nations Building. On the day of the assassination, a woman and two children are unexpectedly seen getting into the target's car. Tony now objects to carrying out the hit, preferring to only kill the intended target. Alberto reminds Tony of Sosa's demands and Tony reluctantly begins to tail the target. Tony's disgust at the idea of killing an innocent woman with her two kids grows, however, while Alberto concentrates on activating the explosive. Before Alberto is able to detonate the car bomb, Tony shoots and kills Alberto, thus double-crossing Sosa.

On December 9, 1983, Tony returns to Florida and receives a telephone call from a furious Sosa, who admonishes him for the hit's failure. Tony attempts to locate Manny, and finds him and Gina together, both wearing nothing but bathrobes. Tony shoots and kills him in a cocaine-fueled rage before Gina reveals that they had just married and were going to announce their matrimony to Tony. Tony and his men take a distraught Gina back to his mansion. Meanwhile, a large group of assassins sent by Sosa surround the mansion. While a distraught Tony sits in his office, snorting vast quantities of cocaine, the gunmen begin killing his guards outside. Gina enters Tony's office wielding a Smith & Wesson Model 36, accusing him of wanting her for himself, before shooting him in the leg. Tony attempts to calm her down before one of the assassins enters the office through the window and opens fire, killing Gina. Tony immediately kills the assassin, creating a commotion.

Deprived of the element of surprise, Sosa's gunmen directly attack Tony's mansion. Tony bursts from his office wielding a M16 rifle with a M203 grenade launcher attachment. He yells "Say hello to my little friend!" and opens fire on the henchmen, killing dozens of them, despite being heavily wounded himself by return fire. The carnage continues until Sosa's top assassin ("the Skull") sneaks up behind him and shoots him in the back. Tony falls from his balcony into a fountain in the lobby below, floating face-down dead in a pool of blood and water beneath a statue of the globe carrying the inscription "The World Is Yours".

The 2006 video game Scarface: The World Is Yours is a pseudo-sequel to the film, which features an alternate ending wherein Tony kills the Skull and manages to escape from his mansion before it is overrun by Sosa's men and the police, though he loses all his money and drugs. Presumed dead, he goes into hiding in a small shack near Virginia Key Beach, where he laments the deaths of Manny and Gina, curses himself for not listening to the advice of others due to his stubbornness, determines to quit cocaine, and plots his revenge against Sosa. Three months later, Tony comes out of hiding to rebuild his criminal empire and makes $10,000 in a single day of selling drugs, which he uses to bribe several undercover police officers, who have seized his mansion, to allow him to move back. From there, he goes on to expand his empire and eliminate multiple rivals who are eager to take over. He still faces opposition from Sosa and Gaspar Gomez, who have teamed up to form a drug monopoly and set their prices unreasonably high. Tony is also betrayed by his lawyer, George Sheffield, who is in a secret alliance with Sosa and Gomez and leads him into a trap, from which he barely escapes. Eventually, Tony is able to eliminate all his competition in Miami and reestablish his empire, before travelling to the Caribbean to help a cocaine producer called "The Sandman", who in turn sells him his plantation. During this time, Tony also meets The Sandman's ex-girlfriend Venus, with whom he enters into a relationship. Now the most powerful drug lord in Miami, Tony sets out to exact his revenge on Sosa, Gomez, and Sheffield, and attacks the former's mansion, where he kills all three of them. On his way out, he stumbles upon one of Sosa's surviving goons, whom he spares and hires as his butler. The game ends with Tony married to Venus and living in luxury, feeling that he finally got what was coming to him: the world.

Tony also appears in the 2006 video game Scarface: Money. Power. Respect.

Tony appears in the video game Payday 2 as a playable character named "Scarface", included in the Scarface Character Pack released in 2016. He is voiced by Andr Sogliuzzo, who previously voiced him in Scarface: The World Is Yours. The DLC also included a heist that takes place at Tony's mansion in Miami.[8]
