The Politics of Hollywood with Andrew Breitbart
May 27, 2009
Identified as one of the ten most important people in the media that nobody’s ever met, Andrew Breitbart details why leftward-leaning Hollywood is dangerous for America and why the people who run it are uninteresting, vitriolic, and vicious. Segueing from Hollywood to the Internet, Breitbart explores why the right dominates talk radio and the left seems to do better on the Internet and how the decline of print media is changing the nature of the national political conversation.
Here’s a look back at where things stood at the beginning of the Obama Administration:
I’ve ordered Mr. Ramaswamy’s book “Woke, Inc.” from Barnes & Noble and look forward to reading it. I’m not permitted to use Amazon for such purchases under threat of strict retribution from Darling Wife who loathes Herr Bezos … though I must confess my sentiments are in concert with hers.
Vivek was recently interviewed by Tucker Carlson for a Fox Nation segment. It is well worth the 55 minutes or so required for watching. Wonder what Harvard thinks of Mr. Ramaswamy as an illustrious alumnus since this august institution has for some time now been fully committed to Diversity? But then, he is brown … isn’t he?
The Clint Eastwood plug at the beginning of the video was left in both as a courtesy and to avoid editing chores which are my excuses for having forgotten to do it.
One can argue that the cultural influence of the United States maxed out with the launch of Apollo 11 that landed two Americans on the moon in July of 1969. This climaxed President Kennedy’s early ’60s challenge that we do so before the end of the decade. Hard to grasp that this was over a half-century ago. Be sure to turn up the volume and enjoy the fireworks.
Francis Ford Coppola co-wrote the screenplay for “Patton” and received the blessing of the General’s family prior to the making of this film that has a long and tortuous production history. There seems to be little of Patton’s “Blood ‘n’ Guts” courage and determination left in today’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Here’s a man could one could follow with confidence and pride:
On a personal note, George C. Scott’s portrayal of Gen. Patton reminds me of my father both in appearance and mannerism. Rather than “Blood ‘n’ Guts,” Frank Sevakis was known as the “White Tornado.”
Have a great Fourth of July!

On a recent episdoe of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, veteran and Pennsylvania Senate candidate Sean Parnell slammed Gen. Mark Milley’s public defense of the subversive “critical race theory.”
“If you’re looking for a way to destroy the United States military from the inside out without firing a shot, talk about what he’s talking about and implement critical race theory,” Parnell declares. “It’s a disaster, it’s dangerous, it makes it harder to accomplish the mission and ultimately I think it will cost lives on the battlefield.”

How China’s Communist Party Squelches Academic Freedom Globally,
and How to Fight Back: Charles Burton [LINK to transcript]
By Jan Jekielek
October 25, 2020 Updated: October 26, 2020
There is mounting evidence of the Chinese Communist Party’s infiltration of the West, from harassing academics to stealing sensitive technology to allowing the spread of deadly fentanyl.
Most recently, Professor Anne-Marie Brady, a leading authority on Chinese communist influence, was put under investigation by her New Zealand university. The circumstances are suspicious, to say the least, and Brady has been a target of the Chinese Communist Party for years.
In this episode, we sit down with China expert Charles Burton, a senior fellow at Canada’s Macdonald-Laurier Institute, who organized a letter signed by over 250 China experts and academics, showing support for Anne-Marie Brady and her work.
CCP Prime Directive: “Once you have ’em by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.”
On Friday, Tucker reviewed the history of the MSM storyline regarding the origin of the Covid-19 virus and the change currently taking place therein. “Wet market” has morphed into “Wuhan lab release,” be that accidental or otherwise. Dr. Li Meng Yan was first interviewed in September of last year. Her assertion that the virus was released or somehow escaped from a Wuhan laboratory was ridiculed as nonsense by the media and many health authorities. The truth has slowly gained traction.
In the last 3:00 min. of the clip, Tucker discusses the effect of states granting the early release of over 200,000 felons, including a number serving life sentences: the greatest increase in violent crimes since the 60s. Why was this done? To reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection to inmates, or so it was claimed.
Being a diehard conspiracy theorist, I am of the opinion the pending 9/11-style investigating committee legislation for the purpose of looking into the 1/6 “insurrection” is naught but misdirection. The Congress should be digging into Wuhan virus origin coverup. But then, they’re not going to investigate themselves, the Federal bureaucracy, the MSM nor Big Tech. So, don’t hold your breath.
On April 7, 2020, Epoch Times published a video on YouTube questioning the “wet market” theory of Covid-19 origin that references the Feb. 2020 paper published by Chinese scientist that was mentioned in the above video. Also included is an analysis of the Covid-19 virus genetic structure based on that paper and the discoveries made by Chinese virologist Dr. Shi Zhengli, also known as the “Bat Woman.” The video is available here.
Heather Mac Donald is a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, the author of many articles for the City Journal, and has written a number of books.
She is one smart lady. Here’s the first 45 minutes of the one hour interview. Well worth it. First 20 seconds are not related.
“What to do?” That is the question.
… and he’s hired Bishop Garrison as head of white-supremacist-purging for our armed forces.
On Monday, Tucker mused about whether Americans fully grasp the import of the United States stepping off the world stage after a century of primacy. Will we be content having someone else, say China, running the show? We may not have much choice considering the direction the military’s leadership
is taking has taken. Is the military’s primary mission to combat the “existential” threat of climate change? Do we really need recruitment ads that turn the Army into a cartoon?

Tucker starts out commenting about White House COVID coordinator Jeffrey Zients’ statement on CNN regarding the “privilege” of being allowed to NOT wear a mask, as well as Fauci’s “Meet the Press” comment suggesting that we may well wish to wear masks during upcoming flu seasons. Great. Masked forever.
At the 5m point, the monologue moves to the May 5th “Bulletin of Atomic Scientists” article by Nicholas Wade concerning the point of origin of the – moniker of your choice – CCP/Wuhan/COVID-19 virus. Full article here or here.
Not to be missed.
Only question left is whether or not the release was accidental.
On Tuesday, “Unreported Truths” author Alex Berenson was Tucker’s guest and pushed back against Carlson’s Monday characterization of Fauci as being criminally liable for his approval of funding for gain-of-function research in Wuhan. Dr. Fauci’s role regarding said funding is described toward the end of the Nicholas Wade article linked above. With that in mind, here’s Berenson’s retort (starts at 2m10s):
Next time? “It’ll be worse.” So, is Fauci off the hook?
