    George Clooney: Kim Jong-un can’t tell me what to watch By Derrick Bryson Taylor George Clooney won’t be told what to watch, especially by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. “Sony didn’t pull [The Interview] because they were scared,” the 53-year-old actor told Deadline. “They pulled the movie because of all the theaters said they were not going to run it. And they said they were not going to run it because they talked to their lawyers and those lawyers said, if somebody dies in one of these, then you’re going to be responsible.” Clooney also shared that he had been...

    Controversial street artist Sabo, for the first time ever, publicly revealed his face on television on the One American News Networks Rick Amato Show last night. Sabo, is his work art, or is it another form of vandalism? You be the judge. Known for his unique and in-your-face pieces, Sabo attempts to point “out the hypocrisy of liberal ideology and liberals on the left in general,” says Rick Amato. And until yesterday, Sabo had kept his face, at least on television, anonymous. But why did he choose to reveal himself now?

    U-M professor Susan Douglas Susan Douglas is a University of Michigan professor and department chair who is not shy about expressing her viewpoints - political or otherwise. Earlier this week Douglas penned a column for the independent nonprofit magazine In These Times titled "It's okay to hate Republicans." "I hate Republicans," she wrote to begin her column. "I can't stand the thought of having to spend the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal 'personhood.'"

    When rioters and “protesters” defend criminals and attack the police it is not a protest. It is an attack. When radicals and rioters defend the guilty and attempt to prosecute the innocent, it is not a protest. It is an attack. When they make race an issue when it is clearly not an issue, it is an attack. When whites are regarded as guilty before the fact and blacks guiltless even after the facts show they are guilty, it is not a protest; it is an attack. It is a calculated attack and the target is America, is us. “No...

    A Tel Aviv synagogue was vandalized Sunday with graffiti reading, “In a place where the Jewish State Bill will be legislated, books will be burned.” The vandals left a pile of burned books next to the wall that bore the graffiti. The books are not sacred texts. The attack took place at the The Tel Aviv International Synagogue where Ariel Konstantyn of the Orthodox Zionist Tzohar Rabbis organization, originally of New York, serves as rabbi. Rabbi Konstantyn says the incident has been referred to the police but he views it as a “clear act of anti-Semitism.” According to the rabbi,...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said on Friday he doesn't think an overhaul of Democratic congressional leadership is necessary after Tuesday's midterms. But the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee said the party does have a problem with the way it communicates with voters. "We have to get our messaging right,” he said on MSNBC. Democrats, he said, should better convey their positions on issues such as raising the minimum wage and reducing student loan debt. At the same time, he backed Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who have come under...

    This week has featured a potential tipping point in the debate about due process and campus sexual assault. The first event came in publication of an extraordinary column by Ezra Klein, defending California’s “affirmative consent” law. In one respect, it wasn’t surprising to see Klein defend the proposal; too many liberal commentators (not to mention, of course, the entire Democratic contingent in the California legislature, plus Governor Jerry Brown) have backed the law. But Klein’s argument was astonishing—he conceded that the law was flawed, even badly flawed, but celebrated the flaws as a virtue. The law will mean that “too...

    There has been a lot of consternation that Common Core and new Advanced Placement United States History (APUSH) standards eviscerate the understanding of our exceptional history. Most concerning is the anti-historical emphasis on social justice, globalism, environmentalism, race, class, and gender victimhood that undermines Western ideals, the Constitution, capitalism, and American culture. Up to this point, definitive proof the new “standards” were deleterious was anecdotal. But facts now show not only intent, but a vision and mission that bring schools face to face with forces bent on instilling a false shame Americas past for the purpose of establishing a global...

    Sweden's new center-left government will recognize the state of Palestine in a move that will make it the first major European country to take the step, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said on Friday. U.S. State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki called Sweden's decision "premature," citing the need to first resolve final status issues. The UN General Assembly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine in 2012 but the European Union and most EU countries, have yet to give official recognition. "The conflict between Israel can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international...

    **SNIP** The climate march on Sunday with 400,000 people on the streets of New York along with demonstrations around the country and the world marked a new stage in the political radicalization of big sections of American society, particularly a big section of young people. Despite the lack of a clear program or way forward for the movement being articulated by its organizers, there was an enormous thirst for answers and evidence of a widespread anti-corporate and even anti-capitalist consciousness. This was reflected, for example, in the thousands of homemade signs against corporate domination. In recent months, we’ve seen determined...

The Leftist media outlets are on the defensive but still trying to maintain their ground. Their best weapons are to distract public attention by diverting it to whatever has not been committed by Muslims, and the use of double standards, of which the most shocking example is the differential treatment of Muslims versus the Catholic Church. The same people, assorted Leftists and secularists, who immediately jumped to the...

Now it’s opening up a “pattern and practice” investigation of the entire Ferguson police force. The big question: Is this Justice Department capable of conducting a fair and impartial investigation? The applicable federal law (42 U.S.C. §14141) makes it unlawful for any governmental authority “to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct by law enforcement officers … that deprives...

For instance, remember in 2011 when Barack Obama told us “the tide of war is receding?” Remember during his re-election campaign that year, when he said Al Qaeda had been decimated. Remember afterwards, when he withdrew all our troops from Iraq and he said, we were “leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq” and “America’s war in Iraq will be over.”

See, this whole feigned outrage is not about an offensive team name—it’s about control, it’s about liberal bullies not getting their way, and it is the epitome of fake courage....

There’s no doubt that Kreisky was a real demented piece of work, on a par with Norman Finkelstein or M.J. Rosenberg. Austria’s Socialist Chancellor, Bruno Kreisky, despite being of Jewish ancestry, was fond of Muslim terrorists and Nazis. He had a habit of filling his cabinet with former Nazis while comparing Zionism to Nazism. His political success rested on a welfare state built with Soviet money funneled through commercial orders and turning a blind eye to terrorist attacks carried out with Soviet and Polish machine guns...

His power to change the world rests with his moral authority, convincing people to do what’s right, not just the 1.2 billion Catholic faithful, everyone in the world. But moral persuasion goes just so far. The Pope has another weapon, the rarely used but extraordinary power of excommunication. When he used it recently the thought came up, could he use it against capitalists? Capitalism? To understand this weapon you need some background and what...

    The Democracy Alliance is not a famous organization, but it deserves to be. The Alliance consists of approximately 100 rich liberals who have taken upon themselves the task of coordinating America’s many left-wing organizations to promote a single radical agenda. The Alliance does not publicize the names of its members, but it held a conference for its “partners” and membership prospects in April, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (naturally) in Chicago. Someone who attended the conference unfortunately (heh) left his or her copy of the documents passed out by the Democracy Alliance behind, and they eventually fell into the wrong...

    The Minister of Economics, Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett, was verbally and physically assaulted Tuesday in the course of the Peace Conference sponsored by ultra-leftist newspaper Haaretz. Bennett was one of the few speakers invited to the conference from outside of the political left. When he walked up on the stage, boos and catcalls of “fascist” and “murderer” were heard from the audience. Additionally, cries of "Mohammed Abu Khder's blood is on your hands" were heard, a reference to the 16-year-old Arab youth found murdered last Wednesday. ..... The Jewish Home leader used a phrase familiar to smartphone GPS users...

    Very few Americans realize there exists a large network of far left philanthropists and foundations in America dedicated to destroying the American way of life, our Christian-based culture and our free enterprise system. They seek to remove America from its constitutional foundations and move it toward a European-style socialism. Much of this effort is coordinated by a little known group called the Tides Foundation and its related group, the Tides Center. Over the course of its 33 year history, the Tides network has given hundreds of millions of dollars to anti-free enterprise groups, gun control groups, anti-private property groups, abortion...
  • Hobby Lobby Hysteria: The Supreme Court DID NOT deny access to contraception to anyone.

    Contrary to what you may have read in less enlightened corners of the Internet, the Supreme Court did not deny access to contraception to anyone. Rather, it ruled today that if the owners of a closely held company have religious objections to providing contraceptives or abortifacients in their insurance policies, the Obama administration cannot force them to do it. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) trumps the administration’s regulations. The act says that religious objectors must be exempt from a government policy that imposes a substantial burden on their beliefs if the government has a less burdensome way of advancing...
  • The left loses their minds over Hobby Lobby decision

    I imagine the horrified shrieks that rose from the streets outside the Supreme Court on Monday as the decision in the Hobby Lobby case began to filter out into the crowd of liberal observers was reminiscent of those poor souls who watched helplessly as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed the lives of 146 young, female garment workers. In fact, the similarities are eerie. It seems that liberal commentators have convinced themselves that, just as was the case in 1911, the courts and the country have deemed women to be of lesser value than their male counterparts. The distinction...
  • Left Calls for Death of Supreme Court, America After Rulings Today

    As usual, when a ruling has gone against liberals, their faux "civility" has washed away to show their true side: anger, contempt, and violent intentions. Liberals took to social media to voice their homicidal rage because the Supreme Court decided two major rulings today: that people cannot be forced by the government to provide contraception if it specifically conflicted with their religious beliefs, and that unions cannot force non-members to give them money. Like the civil people they are, liberals decided that anyone who disagrees with them deserves death and, for the heck of it, the United States itself should...
  • To liberal Democrats masquerading as Catholics nothing too low; too dirty to say or do

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/22/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    To the loathsome, liberal Democrat it is never important what he/she says; it is only THAT he/she says. They are the experts at dog whistle messages to their anti-American donors and the theme is always the same: “You hate America and/or the Catholic Church. I hate them as well so send me money so I can keep on attacking them.” Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is one of the best at crafting messages to the hating crowd that makes up the Democrat Party. She knows how to tap into their wallets. She has carved out a special niche for herself as the...

    The American Vision ^ | June 17, 2014 | Gary DeMar
    It’s hard to believe how much things have changed in less than 20 years. There are several reasons for this. First, many conservatives have dropped out of the fight. It’s not hard to understand why. Our two-party system does not give us many options. While there are differences between the Democrats and Republicans, the differences aren’t great enough. Second, as Lord Acton (1834–1902) observed, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Consider Republican congressman Peter King from New York. Republicans can’t allow the primary defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor...

    Now that the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) has accepted a $25 million donation from Charles and David Koch, at least one Ivy League professor is worried sick and a bunch of leftists have taken to Twitter to express their rage. Marybeth Gasman, a higher education professor at the University of Pennsylvania claimed that the UNCF – a charitable organization dedicated to helping black people get college degrees – is “wrong” to accept this particular $25 million to help black people get college degrees, according to Inside Higher Ed. Gasman bellowed that Koch organizations have been “deeply affiliated with the...
