    An Academy Award winning actress is calling for Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin to stop the execution of a man she believes is “clearly innocent.” Actress Susan Sarandon is now joining the fight to save the life of Oklahoma inmate Richard Glossip. “I want people to know I didn’t kill this man. I didn’t participate or plan anything to do with this crime,” said Richard Glossip in an interview earlier this year. Glossip was convicted in connection with the murder of Barry Van Treese. Van Treese was found dead at an Oklahoma City motel back in 1997. Despite that conviction, Glossip...

    Salon ^ | May 16, 2015 | Elias Isquith, staff writer at Salon, focusing on politics. this week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, along with a gaggle of bored reporters and some boldfaced names in the progressive movement, unveiled a “Progressive Agenda to Combat Income Inequality.” Much like the media event that accompanied its unveiling, the agenda is supposed to be understood as a kind of 21st-century, liberal version of the storied “Contract with America,” the PR stunt that, as legend (erroneously) has it, rocketed Newt Gingrich and the Republican Party to power after the 1994 midterm elections. As my colleague Joan Walsh reported on Thursday, this backward-looking attempt to lay out a...

    Actress and liberal activist Susan Sarandon is still blaming America’s homeless problem on Ronald Reagan. The actress, probably best known for her role in the 1988 baseball hit movie Bull Durham, was invited on the May 13 edition of PBS’s Tavis Smiley to plug her son’s 2014 documentary, Storied Streets, that is now available on AMC’s streaming service. When Smiley asked Sarandon why the issue of homelessness was no longer on the “radar for discussion” she blamed former President Ronald Reagan, as seen in the following exchange: TAVIS SMILEY: There was a time that I recall where the issue of...

    NBC announced on Sunday they were starting a new series called "Meet the Money: The Billionaire Donors." They started with GOP-backing Sheldon Adelson. When will they get to George Soros? In an effort to revitalize and unify the far-left Democratic party, progressives have relied on the very thing they often criticize -- the deep pockets of a billionaire supporter. Agenda supporters were linked to at least $159 million dollars in donations or political contributions from Soros. Many of those self-proclaimed progressives will gather on the steps of the U.S. Capitol May 12 at 3 p.m. to celebrate a new, far-left...

In a story that would be shocking even for a public school, Immaculata suspended a long-time teacher for defending what its own church espouses about marriage!

    The good news is that Tammy is not a crappy remake of the 1957 Tammy movie with Debbie Reynolds that spawned three sequels and a TV comedy series. The bad news is that this one is much worse. It’s a desperate and brainless vehicle for Melissa McCarthy, which she wrote herself, with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directed, with all the efficiency and verve of an abandoned Volkswagen on the Jersey Turnpike. There isn’t a single shred of evidence that either of them has one iota of talent in the world of filmmaking. Tammy is not just a celebration...

On the same day that President Obama announced his endorsement (September 23), the New York Times published an extensive investigation of de Blasio’s radical Marxist background, focusing particularly on his devotion to the Marxist-Leninist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua.

    When George W. Bush was president, Hollywood stars turned anti-war activists such as Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins were all over the airwaves touting peace. As America apparently heads to war with Syria under a liberal Commander-in-Chief, such folk are mysteriously silent. The Hollywood Reporter tried to get comments about the war from Sarandon and Robbins at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend, but was told they were "unavailable for comment." Included in the "unavailable for comment" list were other predictably anti-war Hollywoodans such as Josh Brolin and Penn Jillette. To give you an idea just how strong the...

    As two dramas about the conflict vie for attention at TIFF, normally outspoken actors and filmmakers on hand for the fest remain conspicuously mum on the subject. The conflict in Syria and the increasing likelihood of Western involvement is occupying hearts and minds at this year’s festival. Still, when it comes to Hollywood voices publicly weighing in on the debate over U.S. intervention in the territory, the silence has been deafening. A number of high-profile Hollywood names on hand for the festival, who’ve been outspoken in the past on U.S. military intervention, have been uncharacteristically quiet on the issue. THR...

    As of right now, Bill de Blasio is the man to beat in the race to be the next mayor of New York City. The latest polls put him at 43%, which is enough to avoid a run-off in the Democratic primary, and it is widely believed that whoever wins the Democratic primary will sail into office. For the most part, sitting mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has stayed out of the race, but in an extensive interview with New York Magazine the term-limited Independent ripped de Blasio's campaign as "class-warfare and racist":

Sarandon, who won an Academy Award for her role in the 1995 anti-death penalty film "Dead Man Walking,” said she had sent a copy of the book on which the movie is based to the Pope. "The last one.

    I recently watched a video of actress Susan Sarandon being interviewed at the protest in Wisconsin. Susan bravely cheered for solidarity, decried plutocracy in America and she spoke out about those horrible, greedy people known as ‘The Wealthy.’ Of course, I naturally thought she was talking about HERSELF. After all, Susan Sarandon has been a famous movie star for many decades, and I was pretty sure she had accumulated quite a bit of money. But no, apparently “The Wealthy” Sarandon spoke of was Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker (or as she called him, “idiot Walker”). “It takes a lot of courage...

"I think that George Bush is a fool and anybody who aligns with George Bush right now, especially with his administration crumbling from this corruption, I think they should distance themselves and...

    Actress Susan Sarandon, known for her liberal politics, says she's unhappy with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I find Hillary Clinton to be a great disappointment," Miss Sarandon told More magazine, for publication today. "She seems to be a very bright woman. I've met her. But she's lost her progressive following because of her caution and centrist approach. It bothers me when she voted for the war," Sarandon said. Clinton voted in 2002 to authorize the Iraq war and is a member of the Senate Armed Forces Committee. The former first lady defended her vote in November, calling upon the U.S....

    The sun is rising over a house in the Berkeley Hills, and in its modest studio apartment, America's most compelling anti-war activist is making her bed, apologizing for the clutter and running late. Cindy Sheehan was up much of the previous night while emergency room doctors treated her daughter for a painful cyst, but sleeping in is out of the question. Soon a car will whisk her off to a Canadian TV interview, to be followed by a local TV interview, and finally, fixing spaghetti for her three adult children in Vacaville -- her home before the death of her...

    In the rearview mirror, objects often look smaller than they did when we passed them. Lots of people were thrown--or threw themselves--into the spotlight this year, many of whom we will never see again, unless they have shrewd publicists or the reality shows get desperate. But they can always think with fondness or remorse of 2005, when, for a while, theirs were the names on everyone's lips.

  • Surrounded by Idiots: Fighting Liberal Lunacy in America - (Mike Gallagher has it right!)

    In Surrounded by Idiots, Mike Gallagher, one of the top radio talk show hosts in America, takes us to the front lines of the unprecedented cultural and political war confronting all decent Americans. The 2004 election was a watershed moment in our nation's history, and while it was shocking to the left to see so many red states on the electoral map, to conservatives it was just an affirmation of what they'd known all along – conservatives are the mainstream and liberals are the fringe. It is not the time to rest or take things for granted, Mike Gallagher argues....
  • SCHLUSSEL: "War of Worlds" Spielberg-esque Message: Don't Fight Terror

    "War of the Worlds" Spielberg-esque Message: Don't Fight Terror By Debbie Schlussel I'm violating Steven Spielberg's review policy for "War of the Worlds" and telling you what I think ahead of tomorrow's scheduled release date. I saw the movie at a press screening, last night, and was disturbed by the message: Don't fight terror, and everything will work out. (Security was literally tighter than that for going to the White House to meet the President. No purses allowed. Three wandings by security.) It's bad enough that Steven Spielberg is adding "balance" and factual inaccuracy to the story of the Israeli...

    You know the Left is in big trouble when they look upon Hollywood actress, Susan Sarandon, as some sort of political guru as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, “Susan Sarandon on CSpan nailed it, the Dems need to understand the difference in beliefs between rurals and urbans.” What next for the DUmmies? Will they look to Bianca Jagger for campaign advice? Maybe Madonna will be seen as a source for religious inspiration. OH WAIT! She already is looked upon as an expert in metaphysics with her watered down celeb Kabbala routine. While we are at it,...
  • In America, we take our freedom for granted.

    Here is something that should not surprise you. In a two-year study of more than 100,000 high school student and educators, a majority of students believed that flag burning was illegal, and that the government could censor the internet. Another shocker was that most high school students think that the first amendment goes too far in protecting our rights to free speech, press and religion. Our public school system has absolutely failed this country. The foundation of our way of life is spelled out in the constitution, and nothing should be more sacred to our citizens than the first ammendment....

    In this time of traditional thanksgiving for the families, friendships, freedoms and bounties we enjoy, it's only appropriate that we Republicans - in the spirit of appreciation, graciousness, charity and comity - give thanks to those whose contributions were instrumental in securing control of both houses of Congress, a majority of governorships, a plurality of state legislatures, a clear majority of the popular vote (for the first time in 16 years) and, of course, the re-election of President George W. Bush. Thank you, Terry McAullife. You will no doubt be remembered as the worst-ever chairman of the Democratic National Committee....
