    Academy Award-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss talks to FOX News' Mike Huckabee about the importance of teaching the constitution and American exceptionalism. "We were responsible for the greatest revolution in the history of civilization. We gave to 98% of the human race freedoms that they have been lashed for, lost fingers for or had their heads chopped off for and we gave it to them for free and we are the most revolutionary nation that has ever been and ever will be and we don't know enough about our constitution or our history to know why we should be proud of...

    Actor Richard Dreyfuss: "The NRA is Not the Enemy, They Should Be Thought of as Heroes" Katie Pavlich | Nov 22, 2013 Appearing on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight earlier this week, actor Richard Dreyfuss made some refreshing comments about the National Rifle Association, saying that they are best group to turn to for solutions on gun violence while noting they are experts and were founded in order to education people about firearms. "I don't think the NRA is a villian," Dreyfuss said. "I think we should turn this over to the people who are expert at this and the original...

    You may have missed it, but this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) didn’t just play host to a myriad of presidential candidates, but to famed actor Richard Dreyfuss too. Dreyfuss didn’t have a speaking slot at the premier conservative gathering, but rather was milling around the conference with his friend Roger Simon of PJTV. Is the star of Jaws, Close Encounters, and W even a conservative? No, not in the least. In an impromptu interview with HUMAN EVENTS at CPAC, Dreyfuss strangely described his political leanings as “libo-conservo-rado-middle-of-the-road-o.” When asked how he felt being around so many right-of-center individuals,...

    NRB’s Kathy Shaidle recently reminded us of the folly of too quickly endorsing celebrities who espouse conservative views. It is a sentiment that was likewise expressed by S.E. Cupp this week on her new internet radio show. In short, we are constantly looking for conservative heroes, and thus constantly setting ourselves up for disappointment. Cupp astutely evoked the one-time fervor behind “Scott Brown for President” as an example. Words are cheap. Our judgment should be reserved for actions. Hollywood curmudgeon Richard Dreyfuss presents a similar disclaimer before waxing political. He shared it in a Poliwood interview with PJTV’s Roger L....
  • Richard Dreyfuss: Rebuilding America will take focus on civics education

    There is an undeniable connection between the political battles of the 21st Century and the move away from teaching civics at all levels in the public education system during the later part of the 20th Century. The benefits of reinstituting a solid curriculum of civics into our school system, and ultimately our way of life, will be monumental. We need to look no farther than our television set to find the cause and effect such a slide away from teaching civics has had on America, and in a larger sense, the global society. Academy Award winning actor Richard Dreyfuss is...

    Richard Dreyfuss sues father, uncle over loan 1 day ago LOS ANGELES (AP) — Richard Dreyfuss is suing his father and uncle over an $870,000 loan he claims was never repaid. The lawsuit centers around a loan Dreyfuss claims he made to his relatives in 1984, who owned an interest in a downtown Los Angeles office building. Roughly 24 years later, Dreyfuss says that loan — and interest — remains unpaid.

    I'm dancing on the top deck with a 71-year-old feminist and psychotherapist whom I've come to think of as the Twirler. We've spent two days attending seminars on The Nation magazine's Alaska cruise; we've talked about the Bush presidency and prison reform and single-payer health care. Now, at almost midnight, my fiercely intelligent and opinionated new friend is putting all the heady political talk behind her by bodily twirling. "If I start to get dizzy, then I twirl in the opposite direction," Charlotte tells me as the live band revs up its throbbing Motown beat. "I won't fall." "Good, please...

    By KEN THOMAS Associated Press Writer BOSTON Actor Richard Dreyfuss offered a scathing critique of the Bush administration on Tuesday, urging Florida delegates to help John Kerry. "For the past few weeks, the Bush re-election campaign has begun a ferocious effort to cast doubt on John Kerry's record as a senator, as a soldier, implications that he is not honest, not bright, that his wife is odd, that he is only a massive hypocrite from Vietnam days on," Dreyfuss said. "It must be remembered that the Bush White House has a separate talent for character assassination that must not be...
