    The Associated Press ^ | November 17, 2022 | By THOMAS BEAUMONT (D-AP)
    MANKATO, Minnesota (AP) — Charlie Kirk stood 80 miles from where George Floyd was murdered, faced an overwhelmingly white audience, and declared he was going to say things “no one dares say out loud.” What followed was an avalanche of aspersions and debunked claims about Floyd, the Black man whose death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer set off a global reckoning over racial injustice and broad calls for change. But the white conservative agitator had a counter view: Floyd was a “scumbag,” he said, unworthy of the attention. The insult lodged at Floyd — a 46-year-old father...

    Tommy Kirk, whose career as a young leading man in Disney films like Old Yeller, The Shaggy Dog and Son of Flubber came to an end, he said, after the studio discovered he was gay, has died.

Kirk first made his mark starring as sleuth Joe Hardy in a pair of Hardy Boys TV serials, “The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure” and “The Mystery of the Ghost...

The 90-year-old actor will take off in the New Shepard capsule in October for a 15-minute civilian flight, according to TMZ. The Blue Origin flight will be recorded for a documentary that was rejected by Discovery and is now being negotiated by Shatner's team somewhere else.

    The Imagitive Conservative ^ | 04-04-2021 | Bradley J. Birzer
    What remains of traditional conservatism? Should we concede defeat and see the great conservative figures of the past as women and men of beauty who had their say but who are now relegated to some obscure museum of lost humanist causes? No! To my mind, these voices have never been more needed and more relevant

    When Kanye West tweeted, "I love the way Candace Owens thinks" in 2018, he was maligned by much of the mainstream media. He also got a lot of young, politically minded Black men and women curious enough to delve into the controversy, and some liked what they discovered. Owens then teamed with Turning Point USA .. a conservative organization founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk, to help launch the Young Black Leadership Summit where 400 Black youngsters gathered with President Donald Trump at the White House last year. Owens now heads Blexit, a group that encourages Blacks to ditch their...

    Blame the media and the coronavirus for President Trump's current campaign woes, Charlie Kirk said Saturday. His advice for the president: Trump should use positivity to jumpstart and reenergize his reelection bid. "I think that America right now, because of the propaganda media and the activist wing of the Democrat Party, America feels a little bit down right now," Adding more positive messaging would help recapture the spark of Trump's 2016 campaign, the founder of Turning Point USA added.

    Being rather unwoke, I was mystified as to why it is forbidden to utter “all lives matter” or allude in any way to the horrific frequency of black-on-black urban crime. It turns out that merely being opposed to racism is not the same as being antiracist. Who knew? “Antiracist” requires adherence to the precept that all disparities are attributable to race and only to race. Therefore, anything that distracts from, complicates, or contradicts that precept is itself a racist act, even if factually true. (The spectacular anti-intellectualism of the defective products coming out of our universities is stunning.) Once I...

    With the death of Kirk Douglas I cannot help but recall the creation of my screenplay I wrote for him and his son Michael.Back in 1978 I was out in Hollywood trying to peddle two of my screenplays and auditioning for any acting jobs I could. One of those auditions was for as a day player on The China Syndrome of which I did not get but did get to read before Michael Douglas as he was the producer-- My agent at the time back in Dallas, called me a week or so after that, saying she had heard that...

    LOS ANGELES — Kirk Douglas, renowned actor and father of Michael Douglas, with a decorated career spanning more than six decades, died Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 103, TMZ reported. Kirk Douglas’ health had been in decline. In 1996, he suffered a stroke, but recovered most of his faculties. TMZ reported Wednesday the last time he was seen enjoying life was in April 2019 when he was “camping” in his grandson’s backyard. Douglas appeared in a few minor Broadway productions in the ’40s but then put his career on hold and enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1941. After several years...

William Shatner ✔ @WilliamShatner Did you hear about the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award being renamed over negative lines on the indigenous people of America? Laura changed the lines in the 50’s. I find it disturbing that some take modern opinion & obliterate the past. Isn’t progress @ learning from our mistakes?🤔

    Captain Jean-Luc Picard rules. So says Jeff Bezos. The Blue Origin founder apparently sides firmly with Sir Patrick Stewart's portrayal of Picard from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" when picking the best starship captain from the "Star Trek" franchise. Of course, that may be because Bezos hung out with Stewart at a recent event "Kirk or Picard? Picard!" Bezos wrote on Twitter Saturday (March 10)...

    We have a lot of love for Star Trek: Discovery's Captain Gabriel Lorca. He's mysterious, stylish and brave enough to keep a Tribble on his desk – what's not to like? Unfortunately, that's a sentiment that Captain James T Kirk himself doesn't appear to agree with, as William Shatner has unceremoniously blocked Jason Isaacs on Twitter. Ouch.

  • The Ten Conservative Principles (by Russell Kirk, 1986)

    09/02/2017 12:20:02 AM PDT · by Mr. Mojo · 24 replies
    Being neither a religion nor an ideology, the body of opinion termed conservatism possesses no Holy Writ and no Das Kapital to provide dogmata. So far as it is possible to determine what conservatives believe, the first principles of the conservative persuasion are derived from what leading conservative writers and public men have professed during the past two centuries. After some introductory remarks on this general theme, I will proceed to list ten such conservative principles. Perhaps it would be well, most of the time, to use this word “conservative” as an adjective chiefly. For there exists no Model Conservative,...

    The anti-Trump demonstrations we now see in the streets are not just examples of the immaturity of many modern secular liberals, who seem to think that everyone else is somehow obligated to agree with them. They’re also a symptom of the distorted influence politics now exercises over our culture. But in addition to being a symptom of our culture, the dominance of politics in every aspect of life is also a consequence of liberalism itself. The tendency of liberalism has always been to politicize everything. Thanks to liberalism, we have a politicized media that has abandoned journalistic standards in a...
