    Your new broad coalition is proactively writing a new narrative of safe spaces, microaggressions, dog whistles, snow jobs, institutionalized rapism, and climate denyism Dear social justice warriors! You have so outgrown the old hammer and sickle emblem, it’s not even funny. The working class has betrayed you and can no longer be trusted. Your new broad coalition is proactively writing a new narrative of safe spaces, microaggressions, dog whistles, snow jobs, institutionalized rapism, and climate denyism.

    There are some lines of William Cowper inscribed on the plinth of the bronze statue of Boadicea near Westminster Bridge in central London: "Regions Caesar never knew/Thy posterity shall sway." The words have never been truer. Hollywood has four films in development about the British warrior queen. One of them, Warrior, is being produced by Mel Gibson, partly with money from the proceeds of his film The Passion of The Christ (a rare example of fundamentalist Christian money backing a project with a pagan heroine). Along with a DreamWorks project called Queen Fury, Paramount's Warrior Queen and another called My...
  • Gibson To Cause More Controversy?

    Mel Gibson's forthcoming film about Britain's warrior queen Boudicca is guaranteed to cause fury amongst feminists and historians, experts predict. Folklorists believe Gibson - whose controversial The Passion Of The Christ movie sparked uproar among Jewish groups this year - faces widespread criticism in his efforts to bring Boudicca to the big screen, because she remains an enigma to historians. Scholars are also convinced feminists will attack Gibson if he fails to portray Boudicca as the icon they have turned her into. Folklorist Dr Juliette Wood, "Take any figure where there's been emotional investment and you're going to annoy someone....

    With the success of "The Passion Of The Christ," Mel Gibson can pretty much make whatever movie he wants, and he is once again looking back in time – to produce an epic about Boudicca, who led Britain against Roman conquerors. The Scotsman newspaper reports that the film will be like "Bravehart - with a bra." Boudicca rose from peasant girl to military leader, and united the Celtic tribes of Britain. The film will be directed by Gavin O’Connor, who told the Hollywood trade paper Variety: "What drew me is that she was driven by personal revenge. Her goals were...

    Flush from the success of The Passion Of The Christ, Mel Gibson is looking back in time once again – to produce an epic about Boudicca, who led Britain against Roman conquerors. Dubbed “Braveheart with a bra”, the film will chronicle Boudicca’s rise from peasant girl to a military leader who united the Celtic tribes of Britain. Gibson’s production company, Icon, appears keen to cash in on further historical tales, after The Passion netted hundreds of millions of pounds at the box office. The film will be directed by Gavin O’Connor who told the Hollywood trade paper Variety: “What drew...

    A U.S. Army Iraq war vet plans to take a team of veterans back to the Middle East to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Sean Rowe, of Jacksonville, Florida, served on active duty in the Army for 8 years, which included two tours in Iraq. He said he can no longer sit by and do nothing. “This is something I feel compelled to do,” Rowe said. “Women and children are being slaughtered over there. They need our help. I know we can make a difference.” Rowe started Veterans Against ISIS to take the fight to the...

    If Republicans want to win the presidential elections next year, they’d better nominate a candidate who’s willing to take the fight to the criminal organization called the Democratic Party and their allies in the media. Luckily, there are two candidates who are real warriors: Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Scott Walker. The latter’s problem? He isn’t nearly charismatic enough to take on the Clintons in a national election – and yes, for now I’m going to assume Hillary will be the eventual Democratic nominee. That’s why I support Ted Cruz for president. He’s as charismatic a warrior as they come....

    A former Afghanistan Marine who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder has found refuge in rowing the length of the Mississippi river. The trip to the mouth of the river at the Gulf of Mexico took Joshua Ploetz, 69 days, about 50 of them spent paddling. But Ploetz said he needed every inch of the more than 2,500-mile river to paddle away the demons of the war, or at least calm them a bit. Ploetz, 30, from Winona, Minnesota, returned from the war eight years ago after being injured by a roadside bomb, suffering a minor stroke and watching his friends...

    We have learned that FReeper jonesat has passed away. Here's a message I received from his dear wife, Debbie: Jim - thank you for your personal response! I admit I was surprised to get your email as I know you have thousands of readers. Andrew passed away in March at the age of 48 after a 13 year fight with a rare form of cancer (leiomyosarcoma). He was a true warrior, conservative and patriot. He was an Army officer (Major) when he was diagnosed, and after he was medically retired, worked for the Army first as a contractor then as...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said the country needs an immediate and massive military upgrade by 2016 and has called on his top brass to put the wheels in motion. On Wednesday, he told top defense ministry and military officials that Russia is seeing “insistent attempts” from world powers, and the United States in particular, to upset the balance of missile defense, The Associated Press reported. He said the United States was trying to take the lead in world power and establish a new missile defense system, AP said. His statements come at a time when Israel and the United States...

    When last I read a sword and sorcery fantasy novel about human warriors trying to save the world against the onslaught of darkness, instead of dark elves, goblins and orcs I couldn’t help but visualize the humans defending against socialists, LGBTers and OWSers. They are the antagonists of our current national tale. And like the fantasy novels, they may have been born to be wholesome beings but their souls and even their appearances have been warped by the power of corrupting evil. I mean, not just what they say and do, but look at them. There’s a difference between just...

    In a development that shocked veteran talk show host Tom Gresham of the nationally-syndicated Gun Talk Radio program, the Wounded Warrior Project “declined an interview request on Gun Talk Radio because it's a firearms-related show,” the program reported yesterday on its Facebook page. “I'm stunned at your email saying that the WWP doesn't participate in an interview or activity related to firearms,” Gresham emailed the charity’s public relations director, Leslie A. Coleman. “Inasmuch as there are 90 million gun owners and most of them support wounded veterans, I think they would be shocked to hear that they are, by way...

There is a surprisingly simple explanation for Obama’s up-and-down performance as a candidate during his reelection grind in 2012, for those lackluster TV appearances, for that epic flop Oct. 3 on the Denver debate stage that might yet cost him his presidency on Tuesday. Until the final sprint, he just wasn’t that into it.

    Few conservatives have made such a profound impression on so many in such a short time as Andrew Breitbart, who died this morning at 43. A lifelong liberal from Los Angeles, he eventually saw through the utter deceit of the liberal establishment and became a conservative. Unlike ordinary human beings whose lives are spent like long burning votive candles, Andy’s was the blast of a Saturn rocket – short but powerful. He left this world in a blaze of glory, but far too soon. His central theme, above all, was exposing the unmitigated corruption of the legacy media. They parroted...

    Newt Gingrich is the only Presidential Candidate now running who: 1.) Has a comprehensive platform that will rapidly release America's businesses from the crushing grip of a no-interest Fed, Nanny-State Regulations, and terminate endless obstacles to work projects in America. 2.) Will approve the Keystone Pipeline from Canada on his first day in office. 3.) Will ask Congress to stay in Session for 17 days before his Inauguration to pass legislation for him to sign on his first day in office. 4.) Fully understands how to work with a hostile Congress to achieve Conservative goals. 5.) Has a comprehensive plan...
