    BENGHAZI, Libya, Sept 12 (Reuters) - An American staff member of the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, Libyan security sources said on Wednesday. "One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes," Abdel-Monem Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya's Supreme Security Committee, said, adding that he did not know the exact number of injured and could not say what the cause of death was. Armed gunmen attacked the compound on Tuesday evening, clashing with Libyan security forces before the latter withdrew as they came...

    The son of a founding leader of Hamas has announced that he will be making a movie about Islam with the intention of showing Muslims the "real nature" of Prophet Muhammad. Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of the spiritual leader of Hamas, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, announced his project in Jerusalem at a press conference on Tuesday. "I think this is the time to expose the real nature of Islam," said Yousef to reporters gathered. "Islam is a religion of war and most Muslims don't understand the true nature of Islam. This is the time and I would like to announce...

    The movie stars Oscar nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis as two gritty women who try to take over a failing urban school. Oscar winner Holly Hunter plays a headstrong but compassionate union official fighting the women’s plans. The film played to an appreciative crowd last week at the Republican National Conventional in Tampa, with many movie goers driven to tears before the end credits rolled.

    Townhall.com ^ | September 2, 2012 | Deebra J. Saunders
    TAMPA, Fla. -- You could say that the film "2016: Obama's America" is the GOP equivalent of Michael Moore's "Roger and Me." The documentary is based on conservative firebrand Dinesh D'Souza's 2010 book, "The Roots of Obama's Rage." As the film's narrator, D'Souza argues that Barack Obama's philosophy is "anti-colonialist," a legacy passed on from his Kenyan father, who left Obama's family when he was 2 years old. I watched "2016" with the California delegation at the 2012 Republican National Convention on Monday when the confab was delayed because of Hurricane Isaac. And I was surprised to see former U.S....

    We libertarians love to rail about government, and rightly so. But, tyrannical government can’t survive if people refuse to comply with its illegitimate demands. Ultimately, the actions of government reflect the willingness of the people it oppresses to comply with its dictates. Ultimately, we have no one to blame but ourselves if we continue to live in tyranny. This uncomfortable fact is perfectly illustrated in the newly released movie Compliance, which tells the chilling story of just how far ordinary people will go to obey a figure of authority.

    It's rare that a low-budget documentary becomes a genuine blockbuster, but conservative firebrand Dinesh D'Souza's controversial new film, "2016: Obama's America," is one of the hottest tickets at the box office right now. "I'm overwhelmed," D'Souza said. "This is my first venture into film territory." The film is now showing in more than 1,000 theaters, and that number is expected to double by Friday, which would put the movie's release on par with a major Hollywood blockbuster. Last weekend, "2016" was already earning more money per screen than "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Expendables 2" -- combined. The film has...

    It's the last half-hour that gets nutty. That's when D'Souza attempts to argue that -- hold onto your hats -- Obama got elected to his first term so he could wait four years, get elected again and then, like some Manchurian candidate, shift the world's power to Second and Third World countries. D'Souza trots out a few people who agree with him but it's mostly guilt-by-association. There's no supporting evidence, even if you buy the connection the filmmaker makes to Obama's father's radical dislike of colonial powers.

    An anti-Obama documentary based on conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s book The Roots of Obama’s Rage will expand nationwide this weekend after doing notable business in select markets across the country -- including in liberally minded New York City. Overall, 2016: Obama's America grossed an impressive $1.2 million last weekend as it upped its theater count from 61 to 169 for a total gross of $2 million, the second-best showing of the year for a documentary after Bully ($3.2 million).

    Went to see 2016 with my son inlaw today. At the conclusion of the movie the audience applauded, but not because it was a heartwarming ending or the good guys won kind of ending, but because someone has dared to tell the truth. It was more like, "finally, someone on our side is daring to tell this story". It is frightening to see just how imminent the effects of Obama's actions are, and that they are all so calculated. I used to get so mad at Romney when he would shovel the pablum, "Obama's a nice guy, he's just over...

    Both are of mixed ethnic heritage. Each was born in 1961 and later got married during the same year. And D'Souza and Obama grew up around people with vibrant anti-colonial impulses. Yet the Indian-born immigrant marvels at the unique American experiment, while Obama appears to have a remarkably different take on the country’s promise. "2016: Obama's America," already open in select theaters but opening wider this weekend, lets D'Souza connect the president's current policies with the formative experiences of his youth. It's a thesis gussied up as a feature-length documentary, one expressed through D'Souza's quietly determined arguments. It's rare to...

    People should protest the showing of the movie "The Campaign" by staying away from the theater complexes that show it. Promos indicate the movie contains a totally unacceptable scene in which a man apparently hits a baby. In the scene one man is shown starting to punch another man. The second man ducks resulting in the first man apparently hitting a baby in the face. The movie is being promoted as a comedy but there is no way an adult hitting a baby can be considered funny by any normal person. The movie doesn't show the punch actually hitting the...

    The title, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," guarantees about 15 good minutes. Just on the strength and novelty of the gimmick - combining the real details of Lincoln's life with a secret antivampire history - the movie was bound to command a certain absurd appeal. The trick was in getting audiences past those 15 minutes, and that's what the movie does. Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is a money-making stunt that its author - who also wrote the screenplay - wisely decided to treat with seriousness, or at least an attitude of seriousness. Instead of...

    It's safe to say that everyone expected Marvel's "The Avengers" to smash the box office when it opened in U.S. theaters this weekend, but no one could foresee just how many records it would break.

The film now also holds the #1 spot for highest Saturday gross of all time with a whopping $69.7 million made in a single day. "We are really in uncharted territory now with an...

    Oscar-winning producer Gerald Molen, who collaborated with Steven Spielberg on “Schindler’s List,” has been low-key about his conservatism. In this week’s edition of The Hollywood Reporter, Molen speaks about his politics and writes about his upcoming documentary with Dinesh D’Souza, “Obama: 2016,” which seeks to unveil the origin of President Barack Obama’s worldview. ... Molen said he is concerned, like many other Americans, about the direction the country is taking. Neither he nor the American public, he insisted, knows much about Obama. ... So Molen ... teamed up with D’Souza, whose book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” piqued his interest....

    Kids these days were sailing along through life just fine thinking that James Cameron’s 1997 epic Titanic was a grandiose, if cheesy, love story set on a fictional ship, but with all the news of the disaster’s 100th anniversary came the iceberg of truth – and embarrassing admissions such as this one: “I didn’t know Titanic actually happened, thought it was just a film.” That’s a real tweet, and there have been more like it this month. Enough, in fact, that a Tumblr feed has been created to collect them all. “Nobody told me titanic was real...? How am I...

    The NARAL Pro-Choice America organization lashed out at the film “October Baby” for its message and methods. “Movie-goers need to be aware that this film is out-of-step with mainstream America,” NARAL spokesperson Adora Slaughter contended. “It implies that carrying a baby to term is THE right choice.

The notion that one-in-four women might be making the wrong choice flies in the face of Secretary Sebelius’ determination that women have the right to make this choice and that insurers must cover it regardless of any psuedo conscientious objections.” “On top...
