    Brussels, May 18th: Libertas, the pan-European people’s movement for a democratic, accountable and transparent European Union, is to-date backing 613 candidates for the European elections next month.

    EU Observer ^ | 23 January 2009 | Valentina Pop
    The centre-right European People's Party (EPP) is likely to keep its majority in the European Parliament in the June elections, as Europeans pick a safe pair of hands in the economic crisis over socialist "agit-prop," EPP secretary-general Antonio Lopez-Isturiz told the EUobserver. "The general feeling is that we can maintain a good score ahead of the Socialists. Not an absolute majority, but a majority like we have now, more or less," Mr Lopez-Isturiz said. He admitted the EPP would lose some of its seats "because in many countries we are in government, and that will have a negative impact." But...

    .A film fest for the right The Liberty Film Festival features conservative films in the blue heart of Hollywood.By Patrick Goldstein November 7, 2006 ...this weekend Michael Moore followers will have to take a backseat to Michael Medved fans, thanks to the third annual Liberty Film Festival, which opens Friday at the Pacific Design Center. The festival is the brainchild of Jason Apuzzo and Govindini Murty, husband-and-wife film devotees who are on a mission to establish a conservative beachhead of cultural influence in the movie business. Having watched a batch of the films slated to screen this weekend, the festival...

  • Movie Review: Munich [Jason Apuzzo of LIBERTAS gives a positive (!!?!) review]

    LIBERTAS/Liberty Film Festival ^ | 12/27/2005 | Jason Apuzzo
    SPOILERS BELOWA major controversy has emerged as to whether Steven Spielberg’s Munich is anti-Israel - a kind of pacifistic rejection of the ‘cycle of violence,’ a simplistic cri de coeur about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by a West LA liberal. Many conservative critics are rejecting the film on this basis - while left-leaning film critics are smugly embracing the film, largely for the same reasons. All of these people apparently saw a different film than I did. Steven Spielberg’s new terror-themed thriller Munich may be many things, but it’s not Woodstock, Coming Home or Born on the Fourth of July -...

    Slow to awaken after the 9/11 attacks, Hollywood has finally come around to contributing what it can in the War on Terror: namely, glossy, star-studded movies that sympathize with the enemy. Snip - "V For Vendetta." From Warner Brothers and the creators of "The Matrix" comes this film about a futuristic Great Britain that's become a 'fascist state.' A masked 'freedom fighter' named V uses terror tactics (including bombing the London Underground) to undermine the government - leading to a climax in which the British Parliament is blown up. Natalie Portman stars as a skinhead who turns to 'the revolution'...

    Conservative Spotlight: Liberty Film Festivalby Katie FarberPosted Aug 24, 2005It is commonly assumed that Hollywood, from directors to actors, is liberal. The Liberty Film Festival, set to take place October 21-23, is an annual event that aims to debunk this myth. Started last year, the Liberty Film Festival, co-founded and co-directed by Jason Apuzzo and Govindini Murty, is Hollywood’s first and only conservative film festival. It seeks to give prominence to talented filmmakers who cannot get their work shown within the existing Hollywood system, as well as to educate the public on films from a conservative perspective through commentary on...

    6/26/2005 The Liberty Film Festival/LIBERTAS in The NY TimesFiled under: GeneralLIBERTAS in the News— Jason @ 12:34 pm Be sure to check out today’s NY Times article on Page 1 of the Arts & Leisure section on the new conservative film movement. Reporter James Ulmer did a nice job on the piece - in large part because he got the players right, and really captured some of the personalities. There are a few points Govindini and I made in the article that bear repeating - because they come up so often on our discussions in this subject. First of...

    By JAMES ULMER An Excerpt: Published: June 26, 2005 LOS ANGELESTHE film producer Stephen K. Bannon isn't just on a crusade. He's on a roll. "Look at Feb. 25, 2004 - a watershed week for the Hollywood right," he said in his Santa Monica office while scribbling a circle around the word "Lord" on his whiteboard. "On Ash Wednesday, 'The Passion of the Christ' is released theatrically, and on Sunday, 'Lord of the Rings' - a great Christian allegory - wins 11 Academy Awards. So here you have Sodom and Gomorrah bowing to the great Christian God, and did...
  • Did Communists Infiltrate the Catholic Church?

    As a traditional Jew, I'm deeply concerned over the plight of the Roman Catholic Church, which I consider to be the largest and most influential repository of conservative Judeo-Christian values in America today. I believe that those of us who care about the furtherance of a moral society have a stake in the future of the church as a moral force. The American church is under siege today, not only from the usual external forces but also from the weight of its own internal contradictions. The scandal of corrupt homosexual priests violating the innocence of minors in their care is,...
