    Can you imagine how scary it would be to live in a world where your livelihood depended on having the ‘correct’ politics? It’s the sort of thing you might expect of totalitarian regimes – Baathist Iraq under Saddam Hussain; everywhere that has ever tried communism; increasingly, Xi’s panopticon China – but definitely not of any liberal democracy in the 21st century. That dystopian future, though, may be much closer than you think. I only properly appreciated this recently when the podcast I’ve been doing for the last few years was mysteriously dropped by my regular employer, forcing me to seek...

    I've been wondering for quite a while about the practical and legal difficulties surrounding the concept of compiling a carefully curated, distributed list of leftist vermin and then officially notifying them via registered mail and other legally recognized methods that they're persona non grata on the grounds of my private property and my own company and on the grounds of a fair number of other participating private property owners, sole proprietorships, and corporations. Obviously, notorious leftist vermin such as Morris Dees, Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Louis Farrakhan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and hundreds of others would be...
  • TOTO: Hollywood, Once Scornful Of Blacklists, Now Embraces Them

    Remember Hollywood’s old obsession with the “blacklisting” of alleged communists? Movie after movie captured that dark chapter in American history, each film wagging a cinematic finger at industry insiders who punished Communist sympathizers — or just folks suspected of harboring such thoughts. Think “The Front,” “The Majestic,” “Trumbo,” “Guilty by Suspicion” and “Good Night, and Good Luck.” That was then. Today, people who hold what the Hollywood elite consider untenable views — such as those who believe in protecting the U.S. border — are targeted, shamed and made to fear for their careers. It’s happening both inside Tinsel Town and...

    Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith smilingly posed for a photo in 2014 while wearing a Confederate cap and holding a rifle, then put the image on her Facebook page with the words "Mississippi history at its best!" That image, taken at a Mississippi museum, resurfaced Tuesday as AT&T, Leidos and Walmart joined two other companies, Union Pacific and Boston Scientific, in asking Hyde-Smith, a Republican, to return campaign contributions because of controversy over her recent jest about being willing to attend a public "hanging."

    I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today. It’s not government. Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth new media gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon. This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show....

    One major part of the President’s recent shutdown showdown announcement was a dispute over funding to continue construction of the border wall. And the word “continue” is important here because portions of the project are already underway, in addition to the previous submissions of wall design samples. Much of that work took place in Southern California and now the city of San Diego has a message for all of the construction contractors who have taken part in the effort. Don’t bother applying for any more city contracts because you’re going to be on their blacklist. (Free Beacon) As President...

    James Woods has been dropped by his talent agent, and received the announcement in an email sent during the Fourth of July holiday. The Oscar-nominated actor shared a screenshot of the email with the subject line “Well…” on his personal Twitter account. The talent agent, Ken Kaplan, said that he’d come to the decision to no longer represent the outspoken conservative star because he was “feeling patriotic.” “It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” Kaplan wrote. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I can go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

    314 Action Wants to Elect Scientists, But Only if They're Democrats The U.S. Congress is made up mostly of professional politicians and lawyers. This comes as a surprise to precisely no one, but the sheer numbers are rather striking.According to the Congressional Research Service (PDF, Table 2), the 115th Congress consists of 168 Representatives (out of 435) who are lawyers, and the Senate has 50 lawyers (out of 100). Combined, lawyers make up nearly 41% of Congress.How many lawyers are in the U.S.? One law firm (with a nifty interactive map!) estimates roughly 1.3 million. Given that the U.S. population...

    The lead promoter and founder of East Coast Comicon, Cliff Galbraith, bragged on social media about banning Christian conservative actor Kevin Sorbo from the upcoming geek convention in New Jersey because of the actor’s friendship with Sean Hannity. “I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon,” organizer Galbraith wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “He’s pals with Sean Hannity. Just can’t do it.” As with video games, YA literature, and tech, the comic book and nerd culture convention circuit has become progressively left-leaning over the past few years–and East Coast Comicon is no exception. Its founder, Cliff Galbraith, advertised...

    In recent weeks, some 130 Israeli companies and another 60 international corporations have received letters from the current UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Jordan’s Prince Zeid bin Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein, warning them that they are being “blacklisted” for “acting contrary to international law and UN decisions." According to Yediot Aharonot, the list in question includes well-known Israeli companies spanning different sectors, from food to services, pharmaceuticals to hi-tech. All of them, however, have one thing in common: They operate in Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem, or the Jordan Valley. Yediot Aharonot reported that the companies are currently considering taking...

    American Thinker.com ^ | October 17, 2017 | John Dietrich
    Sharyl Attkisson’s The Smear gives insight to how news is made today. It goes a long way in convincing readers that they should believe only a small portion of what is released by the government and reported by the press. This leads to a very cynical view of the news and confirms Otto von Bismarck’s claim that "Nothing is proven until it is officially denied." Attkinsson gives an account of how massive the smear industry is. My only criticism of the book is her contention that, “the organized political smear entered the contemporary marketplace circe 1987.” Some of these smear...

    George Clooney has been accused of helping “blacklist” an actress after she complained of sexual and racial harassment. “Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up [about] harassment on ER,” claimed ER actress Vanessa Marquez in a post on Twitter. “Women who dont play the game lose career… I did.” “He’s not who he pretends [to be],” added Marquez in another post. “Wells, NBC, Amblin, WB, cast & crew & my agents all complicit in my #Blacklist [for] speaking UP in ’95” After one user expressed their shock that Clooney would be accused of covering up sexual harassment, Marquez replied,...

She accused actor Eriq La Salle and a crew member of being “p—sy grabbers” and said racial abuse about her Mexican heritage came from “Anthony,Noah,Julianna.” Marquez said she complained to executive producer John Wells. “Wells was the boss&I 1st reported...

    Just weeks after James Woods said he was blacklisted in Hollywood because of his conservative views, the Oscar-nominated actor said he was retiring from the industry. Woods tweeted this summer that he had “accepted the fact that” he was blacklisted from Hollywood because of his views. He has said being conservative has made it tough to find work in Hollywood the past few years.

    Most Americans are at least somewhat aware of what is happening at American (and European) universities with regard to conservative speakers. Universities disinvite conservative speakers, never invite them, or allow the violent (or threatened violent) prevention of them. No non-left-wing idea should be permitted on campus. But we may have hit a new low. For years, I have been conducting symphony orchestras in Southern California. I have conducted the Brentwood-Westwood, Glendale, and West Los Angeles Symphony Orchestras, the Pasadena Lyric Opera, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. I have studied classical music since high school, when I...

    Can we just get along? This question is being asked more and more, what with the bitter polarization of the nation. The answer, right now, would appear to be a resounding no. It’s not because we can’t. We don’t want to. I had that thought the other day when I was listening to the Seattle City Council. Many council meetings of late involve left-wingers shouting at other left-wingers for not being left-wing enough. But on this day, a new purity test of left-wingedness was revealed. The council was debating the juvenile-justice issue. Not everyone agrees whether a new jail should...

    The George Soros funded activist organization, Media Matters has targeted Sean Hannity in an attempt to get him booted off of Fox News. Media Matters has posted a list of HannityÂ’s advertisers for liberals to contact, anyone who supports America and the first amendment needs to contact the Hannity advertisers and let them know if they pull their ads, we pull our business. Cars.com, Casper, Crowne Plaza, Leesa Sleep, Peloton, Ring.com and USAA insurance are the only companies that have pulled their ads from his show, but Hannity supporters are letting those companies know that there will be consequences: View...
