  • The Left’s Sirens Are Already Hinting Our Culture Wars Will End In Another Civil War

    The Federalist ^ | 10/10/2017 | John Daniel Davidson
    The radicalization of the Democratic Party is transforming everything that happens in America into another battle in our unending culture war. Is there anything left in American public life that isn’t an occasion for political rancor and division? NFL games are now nothing more than crude pieces of political theater. On Sunday even Vice President Mike Pence got in on the act, showing up to a Colts-49ers game then leaving after a few players knelt during the national anthem. Next day was Columbus Day, which the cities of Los Angeles and Austin decided this year to replace with “Indigenous Peoples’...
  • Our culture is experiencing a hostile takeover. We must stop rejecting God if we ever want it to end

    The recent Texas church shooting, the terrorist driving a truck through a crowd in New York City, and the Las Vegas massacre may seem shocking – but to anyone who has been paying attention, they should not. Our culture is undergoing a hostile takeover. American society used to be governed by Judeo-Christian do-unto-others morals. But we have drifted (been pushed, really) into a hedonistic YOLO (You Only Live Once) cultural morass. The upshot of this is a distinct lack of respect for human life in general, as well as a pervasive, insidious obsession with self. This is the “me” generation,...
  • Who wins the war? Trump/Moore or the Hollywood/rappers/liberal media?

    Who wins this war? Trump and Moore? Yes, culture in America is sickening. Trump's Access Hollywood video was bad, but Hollywood and the rappers do sexual innuendo as well. Hollywood, Jay-Z, Enimem, G-Eazy, and the rest of the hooligans, can they get away with this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujyTQNNjjDU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LunHybOKIjU When does this end?

  • Harvey Weinstein says Charlie Chaplin was his ‘idol’ – he certainly seems to have taken after him

    The Conversation ^ | November 6, 2017 | Richard Carr
    In February 2012 Harvey Weinstein co-hosted a dinner to honour Charlie Chaplin’s services to the movie industry. In attendance that night, among many Hollywood stars, was Rose McGowan, who has since levelled accusations of rape against Weinstein. Asked about the occasion, Weinstein then remarked that he regarded Chaplin to be “one of my idols, certainly”. At the time, this appeared to be a fairly run of the mill commemoration in Tinseltown, but, in the light of recent revelations about Weinstein, we may now have to view it in a rather different light. The Weinstein story is in part a parable...
  • Congressman Ken Buck Calls for Congressional Hearings into Hollywood ‘Criminal’ Sex Misconduct

    With allegations of sexual harassment, assault, and other forms of misconduct sweeping through Hollywood in recent weeks, at least one Republican congressman is calling for Congress to hold hearings on entertainment industry practices. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview Thursday that Congress should help expose the widespread “criminal conduct” that has taken place in Hollywood and across the entertainment industry over decades. “I think Congress — both the House and Senate — should hold hearings and expose what’s going on, and make sure people understand that Hollywood and the entertainment industry have a serious problem...

  • [VIDEO] Free Market Central Interview: Scott Rasmussen On Why The Deep State's Days Are Numbered

    The Trump economy may be achieving high marks. But America has yet to recover from the political malaise of the Obama years. The country remains on edge, roiled by everything from partisan witch hunts, NFL protests and Antifa violence—to threats from a nuclear North Korea and domestic terrorism. Polls show that most Americans are downbeat about the direction of the country. Are they right? Free Market Central put the question to longtime political observer Scott Rasmussen, founder of Rasmussen Reports and co-founder of ESPN. In his book, “Politics has Failed: America Will Not,” he explains why the pessimists are wrong—and...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/31/17 | John Binder
    The suspected foreign national terrorist behind the New York City attack that has left at least eight individuals dead came to the United States years ago through the Diversity Visa Lottery, a program that President Trump and pro-American immigration reformers have demanded an end to. According to ABC New York, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov — the man who allegedly mowed down pedestrians in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City — entered the U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan under the Diversity Visa Lottery before obtaining a Green Card. The Diversity Visa Lottery gives out 50,000 visas every year to foreign nationals...

    Notice how the New York Times and Washington Post are staying away from the CNN story about the upcoming Robert Mueller indictments. There’s a good reason for that… ….Things That Make Other Things Make Sense: Back on January 10th, 2017, when CNN first began emphasizing the Russian Dossier and how it related to the ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ CTH knew from the way it was being pitched that something was sketchy about CNN’s reporting. It wasn’t just the story they were selling; it was a very specific cast of characters selling it. We immediately NOTED IT HERE. Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto,...

    Hollywood has clearly lost what little grasp on reality they had:Oh for heaven’s sake: “How brave women –from superstars to assistants- stood up to a powerful movie mogul accused of horrifying sexual abuse.” In the immortal words of John McEnroe, “you cannot be serious!” I would like to think the People cover is intended as irony, but we all know better.Let’s start with Rose McGowan, who’s been running her mouth non-stop about what a pig Weinstein is and how Hollywood just turns women into sex objects – there’s a real news flash! Here’s Rose at the 1998 MTV Music Awards...

    For those of you who haven't heard, Mary and I moved from Florida to a tiny town in West Virginia to be closer to our parents. We are experiencing wonderful culture shock. I am not a fan of the winding mountain roads. Supermarket and hardware stores are over 20 miles away. And yet, we unexpectedly love our new heavenly haven of Americana. I am one of around 20 blacks in the population of 500. Everyone from the town hall to the bank, post office and country store knew we were the Marcuses who "bought the white house". Virginia brought us...

    The past few decades have seen a profusion of “young adult” fiction—books written for a teenage audience—which seem to have a peculiar obsession with future dystopias.There’s the one where everything is controlled by the Capitol and teenagers are forced to fight to the death for a televised audience. There’s the one where teens are locked into a narrow career path for life based on their apparent aptitudes, which seems like a perfect way to capitalize on the anxieties of college-bound kids in the later stages of the higher education bubble. There’s the one where emotions have been outlawed, the one...

    "Liberty, equality, fraternity" was the watchword of the French revolutionaries. They'd never heard of the Boy Scouts of America (obviously), but if they had, they would be tossing their liberty caps in the air at last week's news of the Scouts' decision to admit girls. Ah, citoyen, a wonderful thing, no? Well, we'll see how wonderful it all is as we get farther down the road. It might not make as much difference in practice as in theory. (Though the millions who have sat around Boy Scout campfires, reveling in male companionship, are entitled to wonder.) The inevitability and expectedness...

    For many, talking about money, especially their own, is a social taboo. But now wealthy progressives are opening up about a system that is skewed in their favor They are a minority in this country. Their rituals are often secretive. They have their own lingo, etiquette, schools, neighborhoods, and certain places they visit, seasonally. Typically, they partially hide their identities. But in the last five years, some have started to “come out”, not necessarily in pride but simply out of civic-mindedness. What they are revealing is surprising. They are coming out as rich. Eric Schoenberg is one of them. “I...

    Things that have become clearer from the Weinstein affair: (1) in their ideal world, Hollywood is a model of what the left would like this country to be; a world in which the rich, elites have control over and manipulate every aspect of our lives. (2) socialism/communism is a natural consequence of their belief in (1); one only needs to look at the Venezuelan model to see what happens if they succeed and to a certain degree, folks like Weinstein have successfully implemented the Venezuelan model within the Hollywood sphere. (3) it is possible that the many leftists in Hollywood...

    Almost a half-century ago, in 1968, the United States seemed to be falling apart. The Vietnam War, a bitter and close presidential election, antiwar protests, racial riots, political assassinations, terrorism and a recession looming on the horizon left the country divided between a loud radical minority and a silent conservative majority. The United States avoided a civil war. But America suffered a collective psychological depression, civil unrest, defeat in Vietnam and assorted disasters for the next decade -- until the election of a once-polarizing Ronald Reagan ushered in five consecutive presidential terms of relative bipartisan calm and prosperity from 1981...

    To attend the Indianapolis Colts game where the number of the legendary Peyton Manning was to be retired, Vice President Mike Pence, a former governor of Indiana, flew back from Las Vegas. With him in the stadium was wife Karen. In honor of Manning, she wore a No. 18 jersey as "The Star Spangled Banner" began. The Pences stood, hands over hearts. A dozen San Francisco 49ers took a knee. When the national anthem ended, Pence walked out. His limousine took him back to the airport to fly to LA. "A stunt! That plane trip cost taxpayers $250,000," wailed...
