With actors continued bashing of President-elect Donald Trump ever since he defeated his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in November’s presidential election, actor and economist Ben Stein blasted most of Hollywood as being a “bunch of thuggish bullies” who try to silence those with opposing political views.
When reflecting on his past work in the entertainment industry, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Win Ben Stein’s Money, the conservative critic took on those who use acting as a stage to dictate public discussion on political matters.
Addressing the bullies
In the wake of the Golden Globes, which saw Meryl Streep and other Leftist actors and actresses taking aim at Trump and his supporters for not sharing their political ideals, Stein said Hollywood has become bolder in its attempt to manipulate public opinion in the political arena.… Continue Reading
A new Marist Poll found that the majority of Americans — 89 percent — believe protecting religious freedom is an important undertaking, with 57 percent calling it an “immediate priority.”
While Republicans were the most likely (66 percent) to see the issue as one of immediate importance, the poll, which was commissioned by the Knights of Columbus, found that 55 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of Independents agreed. These are intriguing findings, considering the ongoing debate over the balance between gay rights and religious liberty.
Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, who heads the Catholic organization that commissioned the survey, said in a statement that he believes the results show that Americans “have embraced religious freedom and have rightly rejected the false notion that it is something negative” — something that he said is observed among people from all political parties.… Continue Reading
U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) hit the morning television circuit Thursday to unveil their new bill to defund the United Nations.
Standing shoulder to shoulder and smiling, the two national security-minded lawmakers appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Fox News’ Fox and Friends to detail a plan that would block taxpayer dollars from funding the corrupt international body.
In citing last month’s egregious anti-Israel UN Security Resolutions as a major source of dismay in the senate, they drew a clear ideological line in the sand between the Obama administration and Congress.
“Twenty-two percent of the money to fund the U.N. comes from the American taxpayer. I don’t think it’s a good investment for the American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Middle East,” Graham saidThursday.… Continue Reading
When President-elect Donald J. Trump nominated Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator December 8, environmentalists went ballistic.
They called it “a win for polluters and a loss for the American public,” said “Every American should be appalled,” likened it to “the fox guarding the henhouse,” and called Pruitt a “puppet of the fossil fuel industry.”
E&E News reported, “Environmentalists are preparing for war” and quoted Center for Biological Diversity attorney Bill Snape: “We suspected it would be bad, and it’s bad. It’s going to be about satisfying an incredibly narrow fossil fuel agenda.”
Religious environmentalists piled on, with the Evangelical Environmental Network releasing an open letter against Pruitt’s nomination, though that was countered by 49 evangelical leaders in another letter.… Continue Reading
‘White privilege’ is an oft-used term at colleges nowadays, which alleges that white Americans have an internal privilege complex that demeans other ethnicities and races by exerting supremacy. Here are ten examples of anti-white rhetoric on our college campuses:
A recent survey found that approximately nine in 10 members in the incoming United States Congress proclaim themselves to be Christian.
According to the latest findings published by the Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Life division, Christians form the overwhelming majority of the 115th Congress, as 90.7 percent of them identify themselves as Christians.
Congress keeping the faith…
This number, however, has not fluctuated much over the years, as Pew reports that comparing the figures with those of five decades ago, today’s percentage is not that far off.
“The share of U.S. adults who describe themselves as Christians has been declining for decades, but the U.S. Congress is about as Christian today as it was in the early 1960s,” Pew researchers reported.
“Ninety-one percent describe themselves as Christians,” the research group revealed.… Continue Reading

By now the nation is fully aware of a heinous crime committed in Chicago against a mentally challenged young man who is white. Four black adults kidnapped him, bound him with duct tape, tortured him for days as he huddled in a corner, made him drink water out of a toilet, and threatened him with a knife which they used to cut his scalp.
He managed to escape and the police found him wandering dazed and traumatized in a T-shirt and shorts in the January cold.
The perpetrators were so enamored with themselves they streamed a video on Facebook which includes footage of them yelling obscenities about President-elect Donald Trump and white people. Even after they were apprehended they showed absolutely no remorse for what they had done.… Continue Reading
