    On September 6th, 2014, I stood up in front of a packed house in Las Vegas, NV, and stated, “This is not the movie that’s been playing in your head since you closed the back cover. This is however, without question, a celebration of Ayn Rand’s ideas.” That packed house was filled with some of the staunchest Ayn Rand advocates on Earth. It was the “Galt’s Gulch Online Producers Only Premiere” of Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt? and it was the first official showing of the film. I then proceeded to introduce the other VIP guests on hand at...

    Atlas Shrugged Part 3 to Begin Principal Photography Fall 2013 Los Angeles, CA - March 26, 2013 - Today, Atlas Productions, LLC officially announced that “Atlas Shrugged Part 3”, the third and final installment of the Atlas Shrugged movie trilogy, has been officially greenlit with principal photography to begin later this year. The movie trilogy follows the three-part structure of Ayn Rand’s epic 1957 novel, ATLAS SHRUGGED. Atlas Shrugged Part 3 takes place in a near future dystopian United States with the nation's economy quickly approaching collapse. While overreaching government regulations persist in strangling the country's few remaining entrepreneurs, society’s...

    “The Fountainhead” is to “Atlas Shrugged” what “Animal Farm” is to “1984.” Just like “Animal Farm” is not about farming, “Fountainhead” is not about architecture – it is about socialist ascent. While “Atlas Shrugged”  is all the rage these days – and appropriately so – I strongly suggest that anyone who is truly interested in defeating Obama in November read “The Fountainhead,” because it subtly lays bare the Obama playbook. However, at some points, subtlety gives way to blunt frankness – the gloating revolutionary. In this case Ellsworth Toohey, the socialist villain, spells out several ways of accomplishing a socialist...

    (CNN) -- Two bodies dangling from a pedestrian bridge in the border town of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, created an image as gruesome as any in the four years of the country's offensive against the drug cartels. A man and a woman, both in their early 20s, were left hanging like cuts of meat. The woman was hogtied and disemboweled, her intestines protruding from three deep cuts on her abdomen. She was then hung from the bridge by her feet and hands, topless. The bloodied man was suspended next to her by his hands, his right shoulder severed so deeply you...
  • New Book: "I am John Galt"

    Don Luskin and Andrew Greta have written a new book, "I Am John Galt: Today's Heroic Innovators Building the World and the Villainous Parasites Destroying It". Below is a quote from the inside flap. I am John Galt introduces you to the real-life titans who've lived their lives like Rand's fictional heroes and the malefactors who've lived like her fictional villains. Steve Jobs: he reinvented computers, movies, music, and telephones—just because it was cool Paul Krugman: he corrupted economics and cheapened public discourse for the sake of partisan politics John Allison: he built one of America's strongest banks—by having 30,000...

    The movie does a serviceable job of laying out Ayn Rand's essential message. It took half a century but Atlas Shrugged: The Movie (Part 1) finally clawed its way into limited release this past weekend on several hundred screens across the country. Given the press blackout, if you weren't on the mailing list you probably missed it. If you did sign up for the mailing list you've undoubtedly been forced to install a spam filter to protect your inbox from carpet bombing. Rest easy, true believers, the movie does a serviceable job of laying out a CliffsNotes version of Ayn...

    Individualists and money grubbers of the world, unite; you have nothing to lose but your servility and confiscatory tax rates. After all these increasingly collectivized decades, "Atlas Shrugged, Part I" the movie, is finally coming to town. It opens nationwide, appropriately, this Friday — Tax Day. Check your local listings for the time and place. "Atlas Shrugged," Ayn Rand's legendary novel, was published in 1957. Instead of focusing on the old tale of victimized workers and greedy owners, the story turns the tables and shows what happens to the world when the innovators and producers go on strike, when the...

    In a wide-ranging interview with The Daily Caller to be published Friday, John Aglialoro, the producer of the movie adaptation of the classic Ayn Rand novel “Atlas Shrugged,” hinted that part three of the movie trilogy might be made as a musical. “But you know, part three could be a musical . . . like a Les Miserables kind of a musical,” said Aglialoro. “That’s part of the impact and I guess I haven’t said this publicly yet, but I’m looking at it completely different if part three is a musical with quality music that’s done in a certain way...

  • Republicans ARE WAY WORSE Than The Democrats

    The enemy you know is way worse than the enemy that acts like your friend only to stab you in the back. Once Republicans have the numbers again in the future they're not going to reduce the size of government in any meaningful way, ever. THAT'S A PROMISE. We're on a one way path to larger and larger government. The way Republicans talk you'd think when they're in power they'd put half the federal government and spending on the chopping block. Surely that's what the republican constituents want, right? I think politicians of both parties forget that they are not...

    I was embarrassed for my country when many Americans let the fear of terrorism turn them into cringing cowards, willing to give up our basic civil liberties for the illusion of safety, ignoring how we are 200 times more likely to die in our automobile than in a terrorist attack on our soil. I am equally embarrassed today. Many of my fellow Americans have let themselves be manipulated by corporate interests and ratings-hungry media. They have become frightened, angry, and unable to cooperate to form a more perfect union. Why do so many Americans have so little faith in our...

    Howdy all, I'm a long-time lurker, occasional poster here on FR. I’ve always enjoyed the good articles, lively debate and excellent resources for conservatives here, so I’m taking the liberty of bringing a slight “issue” to y’all to see what you think. Recently (around the start of summer, about two months ago) my younger sister (aged 22) started talking about a young man she’d met in one of her Communications classes. She said he was very nice, handsome, smart, and it was obvious that she was starting to take an interest in him. About a month ago, they went out...
