    An Attack on The Ill by Alan Moretti "Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do." – St. Thomas Aquinas There is a cool wind blowing over the mansions of Hollywood. The message being sent throughout this great nation is that if you oppose the Hollywood elite you are supporting "a sad day for artistic freedom". Well, that is what the majority of the Hollywood elite is saying. CBS has now become a launching pad for an...

    ST. MARTINVILLE, La. - Willie Nelson and his tour manager were spared jail time Tuesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. Nelson and tour manager David Anderson, along with Nelson's sister, Bobbie Nelson, and two drivers, were issued citations on Sept. 18 after state troopers said they found marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms on the country legend's tour bus during a commercial-vehicle inspection on Interstate 10. State District Judge Paul deMahy fined Nelson and Anderson $1,024 each and put both on probation for six months. As part of a plea agreement, the citation against Bobbie Nelson was...

    George Clooney and Chris Matthews, separated at birth? The MSNBC 'Hardball' host caught a lot of heat late last year when he delivered a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto that sounded very much like an anti-American screed. In the speech Matthews gave this nugget: “The period between 9-11 and (invading) Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn’t a robust discussion of what we were doing,” Matthews said. "If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we’ve given up.

    THE MOST DIFFICULT DECISION a governor ever has to make is whether to grant clemency to a condemned convict. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made such a decision on Monday. He made the right call when he refused to spare the life of Stanley "Tookie" Williams. We do not say that blithely. Frankly, we cannot imagine having to make such a call. But we also cannot conceive of telling the family members of the dead that Williams had somehow redeemed himself by writing some children's books. Williams' case became national news because while in prison he has worked to steer children away...

    For God's sake, Paltrow, we can't talk about the article you read in my paper, writes RICK GROEN. Couldn't you be a bit more self-absorbed? 'I've just finished reading this long article in your paper on the corrosion of the American empire," declares Gwyneth enthusiastically from her perch on a hotel-room couch. Actually, if couches were countries, she's got this one pretty well occupied -- slim legs, clad in black capri pants, tucked captivatingly beneath that elongated body; blond hair tumbling in golden tresses past those cornflower-blue eyes down upon a white silk blouse. Gwyneth, needless to say, looks immaculate....

    I am wondering when the Democrats became the party of the elitists. That used to be the moniker they threw on the Republicans--the Democrats were the party of the blue collar, union, ethnic minorities. Now I find it amazing that they have become the elite simply because of left leaning professors, left wing media who do not have an opinion of their own but what someone else writes for them, the Hollywood group who are all sustained by the hard earned money of the middle class-elitists don't go to movies and concerts, they to theatre and opera-and are supported when...

    Film Festival Right in Left's Backyard Doug Cogan Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2004 The first annual Liberty Film Festival chose West Hollywood, the very backyard of the leftist elite, as its venue to serve up a three-day buffet of conservative cinematography. Those who came to partake found the main courses and side dishes very delicious indeed. Incredibly, the successful event was put together from an idea generated only three months ago. It was just what conservatives had ordered. Hollywood was once patriotic. It responded to WWII with actors who left their careers to serve their country and pro-America movies that advertised...

    Hosts of ABC's "The View" Gang Up on Giuliani for Backing Bush Joy Behar ridiculed Giuliani for claiming that the first thing he said after the 9/11 attacks was "thank God" George W. Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists. " Giuliani shot back: "That isn't who...

    The heated argument consumed nearly eight minutes, so space permits only some limited excerpts as provided by the MRC's Jessica Anderson who caught the August 31 exchange: Joy Behar: "Did you really say that, 'Thank God he was our President'? That's the first thing you said? You didn't say 'Oh, expletive,' or something?" Rudy Giuliani: "No, no, that wasn't the first thing I said. That's one of the things that I said on September 11th to my police commissioner. It really came out because that was just a few months after that disputed election, and so I had called the...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The Hollywood screenwriter behind the last controversial film about Christ says Mel Gibson (news)'s new film on the crucifixion is violent and disturbing. "It's a well-made movie but it's very violent and infused with a great sense of self-flagellation,", screenwriter for "The Last Temptation of Christ," told Reuters. Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ," to be released with an adults-only certificate in Britain Friday, has been heavily criticized for its bloody portrayal of Christ's final hours. A 56-year-old woman died of a heart attack in Wichita, Kan., last month while watching the film's climactic crucifixion scene. Some...

AFP Slideshow: Academy Awards "Are we now giving equal time to Hitler?," Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman told the New York Post.

    Oscar-nominated actress Charlize Theron has spoken out in favor of gay marriage, branding those like Arnold Schwarzenegger who oppose it "prehistoric". The Monster star, who grew up around a number of gay and bisexual people in her native South Africa, is appalled that gay marriage is still up for debate in this day and age. Theron, currently dating Irish actor Stuart Townsend, says, "I just don't understand that at all. It's so unbelievably frustrating. "I mean, I am surrounded by so many beautiful relationships just in my life, I can't tell you - just so inspirational. And the fact that...

    <p>Rush wasn't built in a day. That's Michael Harrison's take on this week's announcement by Progress Radio that it had signed comedian/author Al Franken for a daily show intended to provide a liberal challenge to the medium's 600-station gorilla, Rush Limbaugh. The founder and editor of Talkers magazine, the industry's lead trade journal, says that if Progress Radio fails it will be because of the impossibly high expectations it has set for itself.</p>

    LOS ANGELES -- I'm sitting in the L.A. airport as some nice looking fellow distributes leaflets comparing the educational qualifications of President George W. Bush and his top aides and those of his detractors in the movie industry. Lib-left members of today's so-called entertainment world spend as much time hurling slurs at Bush and his officials as they do making bad movies or records. Now, I've spent just about as much time in this airport as I spent with my ex-wife, so rather than kill even more time in the bars, I headed to an Internet outlet to check out...

    Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham received a hostile reaction last week from crew on ABC’s daytime show, The View, to the premise of her new book, Shut Up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN are Subverting America. Other than Rachel Campos, one of three finalists auditioning to join the show permanently, the co-hosts were all appalled by Ingraham’s contention that elites on the coasts are out of touch with “the heartland.” When Ingraham argued “that the Democratic Party is not connecting with the people who are its logical constituents, from the South and from the...

    Thankfully, we have stars to tell us so If you’re an American, chances are there’s a celebrity who thinks you’re dumb. Maybe even stupid. Or an idiot. Or something worse, which we can’t print here. Yes, show a celebrity an American, and that celebrity will show you an ignoramus. Too sweeping a statement? Perhaps. But what about this Michael Moore screed about Americans in the London Mirror earlier this month? “They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet. ...We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don’t know about anything that’s happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing.”...
