    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...
  • Murder Charge Dropped For Teen Accused Of Decapitating Mother "Because I Felt Like It"

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina teenager accused of decapitating his mother is psychotic and won't be prosecuted on a murder charge, his attorney said Wednesday. A judge ordered 19-year-old Oliver Funes Machada involuntarily committed to a state psychiatric hospital after a series of mental health evaluations, including those by state experts, defense attorney Boyd Sturges said. Machada was ruled incompetent to proceed with his case. "This is consistent with what our position is," Sturges said. "We feel that Mr. Machada is very, very seriously deranged. And clearly he's psychotic, and we think the state's correct."   Sturges said the...

    Note: If you plan on seeing the movie (heaven forbid), please note that there are SPOILERS in the following story Modern art has come to a bizarre stage: anything, literally anything, can be justified for the sake of it. When a film, that reviewers claim is based on biblical allegory, showcases graphic cannibalism and torture porn, you can bet the liberal media will cheer. Mother!, a film starring Jennifer Lawrence (yes, that one, the one that said Mother Nature’s rage was coming for Trump), is outraging normal audiences everywhere, and even triggering the feminists, with its gore and bizarre references...

    Aronofsky and Paramount's mother! is coming in behind expectations after becoming one of a dozen or so films to ever get slapped with an F CinemaScore from audiences. The prestige title grossed an estimated $3 million from 2,368 theaters on Friday for a projected $8 million debut (mother! had been tracking to open in the low teens). Also featuring Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer, mother! made its world premiere earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival before screening at the Toronto International Film Festival to generally strong reviews, even if it has divided some critics.

    Not much is known about the new film "Mother!" Director Darren Aronofsky has remained silent about many of the details, but he has released a disturbing poem which twists the Lord's Prayer. "Our mother who art underfoot, hallowed be thy names, thy seasons come, thy will be done, within us as around us, thank you for our daily bread, our water, our air, and our lives and so much beauty; lead us not into selfish craving and the destructions that are the hungers of the glutted, but deliver us from wonton consumption of thy vast but finite bounty, for thine...

    Although the entertainment media will never admit it, will do everything in its sycophantic power to write all around it (see: Line, Dead), the chickens have finally come home to roost for Jennifer Lawrence’s hateful mouth. The once-bright superstar who could open even a poorly reviewed piece of low-budget horror-junk like House at the End of the Street to $12.2 million, has just hit a devastating career low (for a wide release), a humiliating $8 million opening for her latest, the critically-lauded, psychological horror-thriller Mother! This is a catastrophe for Lawrence, one of Hollywood’s most stridently bigoted (former) stars. The...

    Hollywood as we have known it is dead, yes it is. It survived for years thanks to America’s seemingly insatiable appetite for mindless blockbusters based on mindless comic books. The box office for those blockbusters enabled leftist, anti-American producers to continued doling out millions of dollars to leftist directors to produce unappealing, box-office disaster films filled with leftist propaganda starring modestly-talented, sort of cute leftist actors. But those days are gone. America’s appetite for mindless comic book blockbusters has run its course, and Hollywood has suffered through two straight record summer box office disasters the last two years. When even...

    National Review ^ | 14 September 2017 | Kyle Smith
    Mother, an exercise in torture porn, may be the vilest movie ever released by a major Hollywood studio. Ordinarily when a filmmaker goes trampling all over your senses with an eye toward maximizing disgust, it’s for the purpose of producing some cheap scares. In Mother, though, the aim is a macabre pastiche of people’s most cherished and deeply held beliefs. Deliberately grotesque and nauseating, and seemingly engineered to outrage Christians, especially Catholics, Mother represents a stain on the reputation of Paramount Pictures, which once produced Going My Way. It may be the most vile and contemptible motion picture ever released...

    FULL TITLE: It's political correctness gone Psycho! Remake won't show the killer cross-dressing in a shower scene in order to avoid 'transphobia' It is the chilling moment from the classic film Psycho that once seen can never be forgotten. Deranged motel proprietor Norman Bates, dressed up in his mother’s clothes, launches a murderous knife attack on a defenceless guest in the shower. But now the scene from the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock thriller starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh has been remade, but with a crucial difference. Bates is no longer wearing women’s clothes – for fear of damaging the image...

On Friday, Douglas County Juvenile Court Judge Christopher Kelly ordered Lopez to be placed on probation, live in a group home, take part in individual and family therapy, delete her Facebook account and perform 50 hours of community service, according to the World-Herald. In September, Lopez, 16, reportedly gave birth to a baby girl in her apartment, then threw the baby out the window. She then texted her boyfriend, “It was a...

Darla Hise, 27, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, Abigail Hise. Hise called 911 multiple times after the Saturday night incident, but would not provide a name or address a law enforcement source told People. Bath County authorities were able to get to the scene after tracing the phone call to her home, where they pronounced the kindergartner dead.
