    Jerry’s Great Sin, in the Holy Religion of Liberalism and its life-sucking, Obama-Clinton Axis. Jerry Lewis, the great comic, is a genius and philanthropist. He is 90 years old, and retired. He is a former comic of world-wide acclaim. He is an accomplished, award winning singer, dancer, film writer, actor, film producer, director, and much more. Over a period of 40 years, Jerry Lewis raised over $2.45 BILLION for a childrens’ disease called Muscular Dystrophy. Prior to Jerry taking on this cause, few had ever heard of Muscular Dystrophy and nobody had ever raised ANYthing for it.

    Iconic American comedian Jerry Lewis slammed Barack Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo. Lewis blasted Obama for his failed non-existent leadership. “Refugees should stay where the hell they are,” said Lewis bluntly. “Hey, no one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition. If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS—how can I take that chance?” Lewis is not alone in this feeling; as of last month at least 31 governors rejected President Obama’s push to accept Syrian refugees into...

    Jerry Lewis criticized President Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo; the iconic comedian also slammed the Syrian refugee program, telling Arroyo "refugees should stay where the hell they are." "No one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition," Lewis continued. "If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS, how can I take the chance? I don't want to lose another Frenchman or another Englishman. That bothers me." Lewis suggested the United States take a military solution to ISIS. "Why...

    Comedic legend Jerry Lewis recently sat down for an interview with the Catholic EWTV outlet. The riveting interview, which aired Thursday, concluded with current events, including Obama, Trump, ISIS and even the refugee crisis. Lewis did not hold back, bashing Obama as a failed leader, smacking down the idea of importing more Syrians, and praising GOP front-runner Donald Trump for his showmanship. Raymond Arroyo, host of The World Over, asked Lewis about the horrific emergence of ISIS. Lewis first wondered aloud where our NATO allies were to tackle the world problem and then commented that they are asking to be...

    The Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon, a Labor Day television tradition for decades, is ending. MDA said Friday that “the new realities of television viewing and philanthropic giving” make it the right time to end the annual event, memorably hosted for most of its life by Jerry Lewis. Celebrities including Frank Sinatra, John Lennon and Michael Jackson to Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez have performed on the telethon, first hosted by Lewis and Dean Martin in 1956. It moved to Labor Day in 1966. The telethon ran 21 and a half hours in 2010, Lewis’ last year as host, and had dwindled...

    With the attempt to limit the deductibility of contributions to charities by high-earners, the Obama Administration has opened a multi-front attack against the American tradition of “neighbor helping neighbor” and financially successful people turning large portions of their wealth over to charities that improve the American culture in august manners. The governmental power grab competes with the attempts to control the financial sector for its significance and may exceed it in the long-term effect upon our culture. One first has to marvel at how liberals can twist logic to rationalize a tax increase. It happens regularly from the local government...

    These 25 minutes of footage and interviews are the last of it, we’re promisedRemember Jerry Lewis’ never-released Holocaust film? The one about the German-Jewish clown sent to Auschwitz (!) to entertain children as they’re sent to the gas chamber (!)? The grotesque comedic rendering of concentration camp life in which—spoiler alert—Lewis’ clown decides to voluntarily enter the gas chambers himself could have been the stuff of cinematic urban legend—Lewis told the New Yorker the film would never see the light of day—but thanks to the Internet it’s very, very real. The 1972 film, The Day the Clown Cried, which Spy...

    This is making-of footage from a film that will never-be. The Day the Clown Cried was a 1972 Holocaust drama directed and starring Jerry Lewis that was famously decried for its bad taste before ever being released. Lewis then buried the film, denouncing it as “bad” and made him feel “embarrassed.” The script and a few stills are all that survive for public consumption — until now, when YouTube user unclesporkums found this 7-minute clip of behind-the-scenes footage and shared it online yesterday. As of this writing, only 751 people have laid eyes on the video below, but that number...

    Puzzling break-ins over the last month at the offices of at least three House members and several committees have U.S. Capitol Police gumshoes working to find a pattern and the culprits, with missing items ranging from cash and expensive computer equipment to autographed baseballs and alcohol. In at least four of the cases, thieves broke into the offices at night when doors were locked, leading some staffers to believe they were victims of an inside job. (MAP: Where the House Office Break-Ins Happened) “The evidence points to someone with access to my office, and other offices in the Capitol complex,...

    Jerry Lewis turned 86 yesterday and got quite a nice birthday party from the Friars Club. Richard Belzer interviewed him last night at the 92nd St. Y, Lewis did a lengthy and hilarious Q&A with the audience, and then Paul Shaffer played “Happy Birthday” to him on the piano with an audience singalong. Veteran comic and actor Jerry Stiller came and sat third row center and even asked a question: “Did you and Dean rehearse your act?”– and he seriously wanted an answer. Jerry joked a lot of his answers, and got lots of applause from an audience that included...

    Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands, announced today he will retire after 46 years in elected office and 33 years representing San Bernardino and Riverside Counties in Congress. This will be his last term. Lewis is the longest-serving Republican member of Congress from California in history, and the first member from the state to be Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, according to a news release from Lewis's office. San Bernardino County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt and Assembly Paul Cook, R-Yucaipa, announced today they both will be running for the new Congressional District 8 seat. In a statement, Mitzelfelt said Lewis has been...

    Reporting from Mesa, Ariz.— The strain of conservatism that propelled Arizona lawmaker Russell Pearce to a powerful perch in state politics could also prove to be his downfall. Pearce, president of the state Senate, will face off Tuesday against fellow Republican Jerry Lewis in a recall election in their suburban Phoenix district. The election is the culmination of a nearly yearlong effort to oust the controversial Pearce, arguably the state's most powerful politician. Supporters champion his gruff, unwavering commitment to conservative ideals, while critics call him a bully whose tactics are divisive.

    LAS VEGAS -The hosts of the 46th annual Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon said Sunday that Jerry Lewis retired from the organization and its yearly fundraiser — the charity's first comments about the beloved icon's departure since an announcement last month. Lewis publicist Candi Cazau declined comment to The Associated Press when told of the statements that opened the telethon on Sunday. Co-host Nigel Lythgoe said during his opening comments on the telethon that he didn't realize Lewis, 85, was thinking about retirement during the show last year, when the comedian offered Lythgoe his seat as Lewis took a break and...

    Few TV traditions in America are as popular as the annual MDA Labor Day Telethon, but this year’s is still shrouded in mystery as to what happened between entertainment legend and longtime host Jerry Lewis and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Not one mention of his name in the two latest MDA press releases about the telethon. That’s not only downright rude and disgraceful, but also a tragedy. This year’s show, broadcast live again from South Point on Sunday, has been cut to 6 hours from the long-standing 21-hour marathon. MDA says the new look will be more fast-paced and hopefully...

    For 45 years watching The Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon was what millions of families did on Labor Day. The Telethon was to Labor Day what fireworks were to the 4th of July and a turkey dinner to Thanksgiving. This year the Muscular Dystrophy Association has decided to replace this holiday tradition with a television show on Labor Day Eve. The 6-hour program will still be called a telethon, but Jerry Lewis won't be there and it won't be live for most viewers unless MDA has different programs for each time zone. The program will start at 6 P.M. local...
