  • That was fast (1776 Report)

    THAT WAS FAST: Minutes after Biden took office, the Report of President Trump’s 1776 Commission (on which my colleague Peter Kirsanow served) was taken off the White House website. I am told a Biden Executive Order has abolished the 1776 Commission already. This afternoon I got an email from Pete. As he put it, this “tells you everything about the Left’s priorities–can’t have the truth about America out there for even a minute” and “I’m sure the Fahrenheit 451 crowd is tracking down every copy they can.”

    Macaulay Culkin publicly backed a petition Wednesday to have U.S. President Donald Trump excised from Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?” asks the young actor Culkin in the movie as he enters the historic Plaza Hotel, gazing at the chandelier and the Christmas decorations.

    Curators are gathering posters and banners from the riot and the protests that preceded it to “help future generations remember” Jan. 6, a museum director says. A sign that reads, “Off with their heads — stop the steal” and a small handwritten poster with the words “Trump won, swamp stole” are among dozens of objects and ephemera from pro-Trump rallies and the Capitol takeover Wednesday that are heading to the National Museum of American History, collected by curators from the division of political and military history. The museum, a branch of the Smithsonian Institution, announced Friday that it has begun...

    When I saw news articles come out that the BBC was going to produce a new version of "War of the Worlds" that takes place during the Edwardian period I was quite excited. To get technical, HG Wells' book was published as a serial in 1898 when Queen Victoria was still alive. As a cherry on top the gorgeous Eleanor Tomlinson was cast as the main female lead. I was so excited to see Miss Tomlinson in Edwardian finery. Well I caught the mini-series via someone a pirated copy on YouTube and what a bitter disappointment it was. The story...

    Preposterous and cliche-ridden, this tale of Regency intrigue – with Julie Andrews giving a Georgian Gossip Girl touch – nonetheless leaves you wanting more It cannot be – no, most assuredly and for the good of humanity, it cannot be – that there are people out there who aspire to write like Julian Fellowes. It simply cannot be. And yet. Now has come Bridgerton (Netflix), suddenly into our lives, and as the minutes and the hours and the eight episodes of the new costume drama roll, the thought becomes ever more inescapable. For Bridgerton is the tale, set in 1813...

    It's confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 is an anti-Donald Trump movie, which is something I've said about the movie for a while now.And I'm guessing that is the real reason "they" wanted it released in December and didn't want to wait until next June where "they" said the June release would be stale, which is because WW84 is getting released during the election.The confirmation Wonder Woman 1984 is anti-Trump comes from the reviews for the movie that are now out as press screenings were held and the press are allowed to post reviews.In their Wonder Woman 1984 review, Collider offers...

    Chronicles Magazine editorial ^ | October 2020 | Paul Gottfried
    Having forced myself to listen to most of the Republican National Convention (RNC) orations in late August, I was struck by what my daughter, who had done such work professionally, characterized as the program’s “underlying marketing strategy.” The GOP’s advisers seem to have pitched their message at the demographics among whom Trump has had the least support in the polls, namely suburban, college-educated women, and blacks. Trump, according to the polls, was losing the former group until recently by about 20 percentage points, and may be winning the votes of no more than 8 percent of blacks. The overall size...

"Thank you for all of the love," the Grown-ish actor said in the caption. "It truly means so...

    At the Batman Legacy panel at DC Fandome today, Jim Lee introduced John Ridley who talked about writing a new Batman series, with Nick Derington, bets known for his work on Mister Miracle, Batman Universe and Doom Patrol. The comic book will, as John Ridley put it "a slightly greater than 47% chance that he will be a person of colour" and that he will be using the comic to "delve into the Fox family" and that "Lucius Fox has been at Batman's side the longest." So… Luke Fox as Batman. Taken a while to get here. John Ridley is...

    NASA website ^ | Aug. 5, 2020 | Tricia Talbert
    Distant cosmic objects such as planets, galaxies, and nebulae are sometimes referred to by the scientific community with unofficial nicknames. As the scientific community works to identify and address systemic discrimination and inequality in all aspects of the field, it has become clear that certain cosmic nicknames are not only insensitive, but can be actively harmful. NASA is examining its use of unofficial terminology for cosmic objects as part of its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As an initial step, NASA will no longer refer to planetary nebula NGC 2392, the glowing remains of a Sun-like star that is...

    A New Mexico Hispanic leader upset about the removal of Spanish conquistador monuments is pushing for the state to end its support for Chicano and Native American studies. In a letter to University of New Mexico President Garnett Stokes, New Mexico League of United Latin American Citizens Executive Director Ralph Arellanes wrote that the state’s largest university should dismantle both programs because they teach Latino students “self-hate” about their Spanish heritage. Arellanes, who signed that letter in his role as New Mexico LULAC executive director and chair of the Hispano Roundtable of New Mexico, said he has collected stories of...

    Washington Post Global Opinions editor Karen Attiah argued on Monday that the Texas Rangers as a team name "must go." On the heels of the Washington Redskins retiring its name and mascot amid pressure from critics and corporate sponsors, an op-ed written by Attiah made the case that "to know the full history of the Texas Rangers is to understand that the team’s name is not so far off from being called the Texas Klansmen." Growing up in Dallas, Attiah recalled going to Rangers games with her father as a child, but not realizing at the time that the Rangers...

    Variety ^ | July 8, 2020 | Joe Otterson
    A reboot of “The Wonder Years” has landed a pilot production commitment at ABC. The new half-hour comedy series would focus on how a black middle class family in Montgomery, Alabama in the turbulent late 1960’s made sure it was The Wonder Years for them too. That puts the new show in the same time period as the original series, which was set between 1968 and 1973. A mini writer’s room for the show will be opened once ABC approves a pilot script. Saladin K. Patterson will write and executive produce. Lee Daniels and Marc Velez will executive produce via...

    Black Lives Matter activists cite Douglass’s 1852 speech ‘What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?’ as proof America is evil. They utterly miss his point. Last week on CNN, as contributor Angela Rye accused White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnaney and President Trump of failing to understand the history of black America, she referred to the legendary Frederick Douglass. “Frederick Douglass said about Independence Day in this country, what to the slave is the Fourth of July?” she said. “And I would invite them to even start there, as a reading principle, to see how different we see...

    Well, if you ever want to see linguistic gymnastics, just take a look at this USA Today’s fact check of the claim that the Democrats didn’t create the Ku Klux Klan or start the American Civil War. Are they really just low on material over there? Because this wasn’t even said by a major politician. It was an Instagram user. Yeah, so for USA Today to pull out the fact check guns on this is a tell-tale sign that the Left is fully aware of their racist past. And given how left-wing mob violence has grown and ‘woke’ crybabies taking...

We would also like to offer a chance to talk through the ideas in the film and your work as a person confronting your own socialization and implicit bias. 13th is a powerful film that discusses the criminal system in America and how the prison system has been used to...

    Twitter users are debating whether or not Beethoven was black after a blog post about the subject resurfaced online. ... In the post on The Concordian, the author said: "I am no Beethoven expert, but bringing up this topic is important. While getting to the bottom of the truth about Beethoven's race will change nothing about the supreme quality of his music, it will open up dialogue about the massive effects of European colonialism that promote racism still today. .. However, there is no evidence of Beethoven's race aside from portraits that suggest that he was white, and the blog...

    In an increasingly antiracist era when problematic iconography — ranging from Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben to even the Dukes of Hazzard General Lee car and country band Lady Antebellum’s name — is being reassessed, revised or retired, America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” seems to be striking a wrong note. Last week, protesters in San Francisco toppled a statue of the song’s composer, Francis Scott Key, a known slaveholder who once said that African-Americans were “a distinct and inferior race of people, which all experience proves to be the greatest evil that afflicts a community.” This week, Liana Morales,...
