  • Ben Affleck: 'Big Republican' Actors Are Hard to Watch

    01/30/2014 5:38:19 AM PST · by Kaslin · 94 replies ^ | January 30, 2014 | Larry Elder
    Democratic fundraiser/actor Ben Affleck -- and the next big-screen "Batman" -- recently gave an interview to Playboy. His own bias against Republicans, he admits, prevents him from fully enjoying a Republican actor's performance. "It's ... hard," said Affleck, "to get people to suspend disbelief." Affleck said: "When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (bleep) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion." Fair enough. But how do you...

    The White House announced Thursday that it is banning employees and guests from using personal cellphones in the West Wing, citing security and technology concerns. "The security and integrity of the technology systems at the White House is a top priority for the Trump administration and therefore starting next week the use of all personal devices for both guests and staff will no longer be allowed in the West Wing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. Staff will be able to conduct business on their government-issued devices and continue working hard on behalf of the...

    The military will draw up a new operational plan for the Yellow Sea after its existing one was leaked in the wake of the sinking of a naval vessel late last month. A military official said yesterday that the Navy cannot conduct missions with the existing plan because it and other military secrets have been leaked to North Korea since the sinking. We have re-designated the operational zone of naval patrol ships to cope with the Norths coastal artillery since last years (inter-Korean) naval clash, the official said. In particular, we find it inevitable to review the operation of monitoring...

The West Wing Democrats, as they are colloquially known, include people like the presidents son-in-law Jared Kushner, his wife the presidents daughter Ivanka Trump, National Security Adviser three-star Army Gen. H.R. McMaster, National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, new White House chief of staff retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Habib Powell. Powell served with Cohn in a senior position at Goldman Sachs before going to work in the White House. All of them are Democrats, though Powell claims to be a Republican given her short time working in George W. Bushs White House....

    West Wing Character Toby Ziegler Having observed debates about the Second Amendment for 50 years, it is surprising to find something new. Tosten Burks, writing at, uses a quote from a fictional character as an authoritative source on the Second Amendment. From The Constitutions most controversial amendment reads: A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The NRA has spent much of the past 40 years broadening the interpretation to expand the gun market. The original intent, however, is...
  • Did Obama Take His ‘Cure Cancer’ Line From A ‘West Wing’ Episode?

    01/13/2016 8:59:20 AM PST · by ilovesarah2012 · 29 replies ^ | January 12, 2016 | ALEX PAPPAS
    President Obama’s call for “a new national effort” to cure cancer during his State of the Union address on Tuesday seemed familiar to fans of Aaron Sorkin’s “West Wing” television show. That’s because there was an entire episode in 2002 of the NBC show where the fictional president played by Martin Sheen made nearly identical comments. On Tuesday, Obama said: “Tonight, I’m announcing a new national effort to get it done…For the loved ones we’ve all lost, for the family we can still save, let’s make America the country that cures cancer once and for all.” During the “West Wing”...

    West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin today gave Sarah Palin both barrels over her US TV reality show, accusing the contender for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination of shooting an animal "for political gain". Sorkin, writer of the recent Facebook movie The Social Network, also accused the Fox News contributor of making a "snuff film" after the latest episode of Sarah's Palin's Alaska featured the politician going hunting with her father and shooting a caribou. He described Palin as "deranged", a "witless bully" and a "phony pioneer girl". He also said The Learning Channel, the US cable network, "should be ashamed...

    The American Thinker ^ | July 27, 2010 | Rosslyn Smith
    According to Maureen Dowd, Barack Obama's latest problem may be because he isn't black enough: "The Obama White House is too white. It has Barack Obama, raised in the Hawaiian hood and Indonesia, and Valerie Jarrett, who spent her early years in Iran. But unlike Bill Clinton, who never needed help fathoming Southern black culture, Obama lacks advisers who are descended from the central African-American experience, ones who understand 'the slave thing,' as a top black Democrat dryly puts it." Dowd continues: "The West Wing white guys who pushed to ditch Shirley Sherrod before Glenn Beck could pounce not only...

    Yesterday, the White House director of Energy and Climate Change Policy, Carol Browner, assured "Fox and Friends" host Gretchen Carlson that the Obama administration was "making decisions in real time" regarding the Gulf of Mexico oil leak. Browner further appeased Carlson by insisting that Team Obama had been on the leak "since day one" and that any complaints of government beadledom were unfounded. "There is no bureaucracy here," said Browner. The Energy Czarina went on to highlight two names from the "best minds in America" club that we keep hearing about in reference to stopping the British Petroleum (BP) gusher:...

    The Obama v McCain race for the White House has been run before - NBC's The West Wing pitted a charismatic, non-white Democrat against a maverick, experienced Republican. In the The West Wing's fictional 2006 election, actor Jimmy Smits played Latino presidential hopeful, Matthew Santos. He announced his intention to run with the words, "We live in cynical times, but hope is not up for debate there is only hope." Sounds familiar doesn't it? "Barack Obama was one of the people that I looked to draw upon," admits Smits. Just at the time that the Matt Santos character was being...
