  • Roy Clark Spins tales at Spotlight

    The Tulsa World ^ | November 17, 2014 | James D. Watts Jr. World Scene Writer
    It’s been some time since Roy Clark could bound out onto a stage like a puppy just turned loose, brandishing an electric guitar and a joyous smile, ready to captivate a crowd with his personality and talent. Friday night, it took him a number of slow and careful steps, and the assistance of a cane and a couple of colleagues, to make his way to a chair on the small stage of Tulsa’s Spotlight Theater. Once he settled himself, Clark said, “I have to be careful I don’t...,” and he gave audience a comically knowing look, “...make an entrance. Which...
  • ‘Duck Dynasty': Phil Robertson’s Family Believes America Could Collapse

    The Inquisitr News ^ | November 16, 2014 | Patrick Frye
    The Duck Dynasty family has made the news partially due to their politically incorrect statements, and Phil Robertson tends to be the largest contribute to soundbites. But now, Phil’s son has taken the stump and is declaring that it’s possible that America could collapse just like the Roman empire. In a related report by the Inquisitr, Phil Robertson believes that Bibles and guns are the answer to any American’s woes. The Duck Commander patriarch also had a dire warning for Sadie Robertson’s boyfriend, saying that if they do not keep it in their pants, then he would “break” them. Phil...
  • Commanding Votes? Duck Dynasty Goes Political! Phil Robertson Stumps For Candidate With Sarah Palin

    Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson isn’t backing down from his conservative beliefs. In fact, he and his family played host to controversial conservative icon Sarah Palin at the Robertson home this weekend as they all stumped for a Republican candidate. The Robertsons and Palin are trying to get out the vote for Bill Cassidy, who is involved in a runoff campaign for a contested Louisiana Senate seat. Palin gleefully posted four pictures on her Facebook account of her and husband Todd posing with Phil, his wife Kay, and Jep Robertson. The former GOP VP candidate added a gushing caption, “Thanks...

    Bill Cosby was asked on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday whether he had anything to say about the resurgence of allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women years ago. He didn't. Instead, he shook his head, and refused to say a word. Cosby's long comedy career and pedestal as one of America's favorite TV dads have been overshadowed in recent days, as the allegations have gained new attention, though they are not new. One of his accusers wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post on Thursday, an attempt at a Cosby meme generator was overrun with negative comments and Cosby's scheduled...

    Is the movie 'Song of the South' racist...of course not!...Have a Zippy Doo Dah Day! Is censorship of Hollywood motion pictures a thing of the past, or… Is it still alive and well in the movie industry today against movies that are not politically correct? There are many who find some ‘R’ rated Hollywood movies of today equally offensive but I don’t think Hollywood is listening. Why would an old wonderful family motion picture offend anyone starring an African-American man whose stories fascinate both Black and White children? Some call Walt Disney’s 1946 family classic ‘Song of the South’ racist....

    In “2016: Obama’s America” - the second highest grossing political documentary of all-time – Dinesh D’Souza prognosticated Barack Obama would foster runaway debt, redistribute American wealth on an unprecedented scale, and weaken our foreign influence while emboldening our enemies. Despite being dismissed by liberal pundits and a Praetorian media as a partisan fabrication, time and our President have proven his unwavering predictions inexorably correct. Therefore, if you haven’t had the privilege of watching the compelling filmmaker’s newest work, “America”, you’re not only missing out on a masterful piece of investigatory and expository journalism, but perhaps the most impactful indictment on...

    Hadn't watched the McLaughlin Group in quite some time as they had lost or jettisoned some of the more interesting panelists (and no, Jay Carney wasn't one of them!). The lineup seems to have stabilized although these poor folks are looking O-L-D...perhaps because they are. Felt bad for McLaughlin who apparently was wearing someone else's suit, so baggy was it on his frame. I'm not condemning anyone for aging or illness but it was a bit alarming. In the days before cable news and the internet, the McLaughlin Group were one of the few doses of political candor and a...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan doesn’t pop up on cable news much these days, but he did get a platform to discuss his thoughts about yesterday’s midterms on Newsmax Wednesday. And when it came to Senator-elect Joni Ernst in Iowa, Buchanan couldn’t say enough about her “attractiveness.” Buchanan began by calling Ernst and “enormously attractive figure” and “a gal with a real sense of humor and a fighting spirit.” He added that she “has the same kind of attractiveness that Sarah Palin had at the start and that Michele Bachmann gained in the Iowa caucuses, I mean, being a...

    Veteran character actor Michael Rooker is long known as a go-to guy in Hollywood for playing it tough and gruff. Most recently, the 59-year-old Rooker has proven to be a reliable TV star, wreaking havoc on the AMC zombie apocalypse hit The Walking Dead, the most watched drama in basic cable history. When not acting, he’s been seen flipping off cameras everywhere, but there’s an admirable reason for it, and we wanted to get to the bottom of that, plus get Rooker’s take on his passion for the outdoors. Rooker grew up not far from his New Orleans-based JFK character...

    The villains were the jerks who pushed Bristol Palin and the members of the media, like Carol Costello, who wear their liberal bias as a badge of honor Since she burst on the national scene in 2008, the national media has enjoyed poking fun and mischaracterizing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The main reason for their obsession is that Palin is an unabashed conservative who is articulate and popular with millions of Americans. From the reporting about her supposed shopping spree during the 2008 race for Vice President to the continuing rumors about her marriage, the media...

    One of my favorite little moments in the very entertaining new “Star Trek” movie comes when the young James T. Kirk activates the computer system of a car he swiped for a joyride, and the Nokia logo comes up. It’s nice to see Nokia’s still in business in the twenty-third century. Such simple touches help to humanize the Star Trek universe, which had drifted a bit too far from recognizable human experience for audiences to fully engage with its characters. The presence of a good old-fashioned corporate logo in the new movie put me in mind of a long-ago, free-wheeling,...

    Monday evening in Ferguson, Mo., protestors shouted down a CNN camera crew’s live shot reporting on developments in the story involving Officer Darren Wilson killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown earlier this year. During the 11 p.m. hour, host Don Lemon attempted to throw to CNN reporter Sarah Sidner for an update, but the broadcast was overwhelmed by shouting and interruptions from protestors surrounding the crew. Sidner attempted to talk through the shouting, but her audio was clearly problematic. Lemon cut her off and ended the satellite broadcast due to technical issues. On-the-ground video from Bassem Masri shows the aftermath, in...

    Via Mediaite, the outfit responsible for posting this clip to YouTube is none other than Media Matters, making this a rare case of a lefty hatchet shop approvingly circulating a segment from Fox News. But it makes sense. Obama’s under pressure because he and the CDC seem to keep getting surprised by developments, first when an Ebola patient showed up in the U.S. (“unlikely,” Obama claimed last month) and then when he transmitted the disease to two nurses. Shep’s PSA here was earnestly delivered, I’m sure, but Media Matters naturally enjoyed it twice over because it turned down a little...

    I think it is fair to say that we may be entering a dangerous phase in American politics when cautious and seasoned, albeit partisan, political analysts and reporters begin to wonder aloud whether their political opponents secretly want their adversaries dead. Some appear to think that it is inconceivable that the dangerous and casual manner in which the Secret Service has comported itself in recent years, putting the life of the President of the United States in jeopardy, could be a legitimate concern to Barack Obama’s political opponents. That is what Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank apparently believes. In a...

    Dressing up like Wolverine or Cersei Lannister is probably more fun than scouring the classifieds for menial jobs. Imagine you're a college graduate stuck in a perpetually lousy economy. That's a problem Japanese twenty-somethings have faced for more than 20 years. Two decades of stagnation after the collapse of the 1980s real-estate and stock bubbles — combined with labor laws making it tough to fire older workers — have relegated vast numbers of Japanese young adults to low-paying, temporary contract jobs. Many find themselves living with their parents well into their twenties and beyond, unmarried and childless. Then again, they...

Would a ban on travel from countries struggling to contain Ebola actually work? Maybe, maybe not. But that doesn’t matter, apparently. The real problem with the travel ban is that it’s obviously racist:(VIDEO-AT-LINK)MSNBC’s Toure Neblett called the idea of a travel ban “immoral.” If you’re unfamiliar w/ Neblett, you’re not alone. His programming appears on MSNBC, which not very many people watch. But since Neblett has dabbled in 9/11 Trutherism, he’s clearly the best person to ask about the...

During his speech, the president said this about Fox and its audience: A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out their agenda. Hopefully also grounded in facts. There’s a reason fewer Republicans...

    The major thrust of the books on West’s list — namely that Roosevelt’s cabinet and much of the federal bureaucracy was filled with Communists, fellow travelers, dupes and “useful idiots,” and that at the very least this influenced an FDR agenda that proved heavily favorable towards “Uncle Joe” Stalin and the Soviet Union, enabling its expansion and increasing its sphere of influence well beyond its borders — leads to a total paradigm shift when thinking about the World War II era. It bears noting that in “American Betrayal,” West herself seeks to draw a parallel between the modern-day whitewashing of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The conservative co-host suggested she didn't enjoy working for Palin during a segment about the former VP's bar brawl scandal.“The View” co-host Nicolle Wallace explained on Monday how she was struck with fear after she heard Sarah Palin was speaking out for the first time since her family was allegedly involved in a bar brawl. “I worked for Sarah Palin,” Wallace said. “I have the political staffer version of PTSD, so whenever I hear that she's breaking her silence, my heart stops.” Whoopi Goldberg led off the “Hot Topic” segment by referring to Palin as a “crazy politician,” and the...

    Rapper Snoop Dogg and the League of Young Voters came together to host a panel about police brutality and the chaotic events that unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri, after 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot. In addition to Snoop Dogg, the panel also welcomed Michael Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr.; Jordan Davis’ mother, Lucia McBath; attorney Benjamin Crump and Chuck Creekmur of AllHipHop. The panel, titled No Guns Allowed: Fallout From Ferguson, took place during the BET Hip-Hop Awards weekend in Atlanta. The group of panelists discussed what the African-American community needs to do to help solve issues of racism and...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)James Golden considers his 26 years working with Rush Limbaugh to be the greatest professional blessing he could ever imagine. Originally from Queens, New York, James met Rush while working for a major media network and hasn’t looked back since. Most Rush listeners know James as either “Snerdley,” the call screener, or the “Official Obama Criticizer.” Golden was in Washington recently for a CURE meeting and that’s where we got the chance to sit down with him for this exclusive 30 minute video interview. For the first half of the interview, Golden waxed passionately about race in America, and how...

    Mediaite ^ | September 21, 2014 | Andrew Desiderio
    On his show Reliable Sources this morning, CNN host Brian Stelter defended Sarah Palin against media coverage of her family’s alleged “brawl” at a snowmobile party earlier this month. “Doesn’t Sarah Palin deserve the benefit of the doubt?” Stelter asked. He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov. Chris Christie‘s “Bridgegate” scandal — or lack of. Stelter then took aim at the New York Daily News‘s coverage of the story, saying the newspaper did not...

    Talk about stretching your 15 minutes of fame into an hour. I cannot understand for the life of me why Sarah Palin is still talked about, listened to, reported on, or even thought about. The former Governor and former Vice Presidential candidate resigned from office back in 2009 and suffered one of the most crushing losses in a national election when she and Senator John McCain took on Barack Obama back in 2008, six years ago. Yet, with no public office, no real platform, no official position with the Party and no real legacy nationally or in Alaska, she still...

    The Federalist ^ | September 17, 2014 | Mollie Hemingway
    For a long time before I became a reporter, I never paid attention to bylines — the announcement of who wrote a given article. That all changed for me one day when I was sitting at Jimmy T’s Diner in Washington, D.C., reading a hate-filled “fashion” column that was nothing more than the projection of angry liberal political views. It was so awful that I wanted to know who wrote it. The author, Robin Givhan, of course went on to win a Pulitzer. I’m part of a profession that rewards liberal political views above most all else. Along similar...

    An overhauled The View kicked off this morning with no fireworks, but, of course, it’s only Day 1. The show opened glutinously, with The New Ladies Of The View kissing the rings of Barbara Walters, sitting on a throne, who ordered them to “go out there and let them see why we have the best show in daytime TV.” (Babs stuck around for the rest of the show, looking sort of third wheel-ish, according to a source.) Whoopi Goldberg assumed her long-held position of air traffic controller, settling that question for now as to whether she or Rosie O’Donnell would...

    Prison Planet ^ | March 27th | Alex Jones
    Alex Jones Comment on Sheen Statement and Challenge: Hundreds of positive and negative pieces have been written about actor Charlie Sheen's courageous stand for 9/11 truth. The pro-Sheen pieces are well written and are brimming with facts, studies and in-depth investigations by concerned, caring people who know that the official fable of September 11 is a patent fraud. Conversely, the sniveling hit-pieces are written at a snot-nosed 7th Grade level by jabbering establishment sycophants. These individuals refuse to challenge any of the facts that Charlie Sheen and others have raised concerning the 9/11 massacres. There's a reason for that: they...

    Global "supervillain" Henry Kissinger has spoken out on the Scottish independence debate, telling Prospect Magazine that "anything that makes Britain smaller I do not welcome". Yet the former US Secretary of State is not the only nefarious character to offer council on the issue of ScotlandÂ’s proposed breakaway from the UK. Some of the globeÂ’s most "black hated" antagonists have ruminated on the delicate matter of the British Union, with support falling on both sides of the fence. Here are 7 of the world's elite "supervillains" that have also chimed in on the referendum: Rupert Murdoch: When not denying man...

    I watched all 77 videos on her new online TV channel and lived to tell the tale. In fact, I was actually kind of … moved.Sarah Palin still exists. I know. I was beginning to have my doubts, too. Once upon a time, Palin was everywhere. On Fox News. On reality TV. On the cover of Time. And Newsweek. And Time. And Newsweek. And Time, and Newsweek, and Newsweek again. Now Palin is none of those places. For most of us, she is but a receding image in the rearview mirror of human history — a bit of trivia to...
