Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

July 16, 2014

I needed some veg time after finishing up a grad school paper yesterday and found myself going to see a mindless film on a random rainy Tuesday.  Given what’s out right now, I decided to see the 416th (eighth actually) “Planet of the Apes” film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  Here’s the trailer: [...]

Beck on the Santa Barbara Killings

May 27, 2014

Six people were killed and thirteen were wounded when 22 year old Elliot Rodger went on his killing spree this weekend.  Rodger left a massive manifesto and many YouTube videos trying to explain his mindset before perpetrating these murders. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims. Unfortunately, the [...]

Movie Review–Captain America: The Winter Soldier

April 6, 2014

Marvel’s latest comic book adaptation, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, hit theaters this weekend with both a fun and highly political message.  Here’s the trailer: The reviews are in and Winter Soldier is definitely worth the price of admission.  It’s even received Glenn Beck’s seal of approval (which is very hard to get for a [...]

What to do with Phil Robertson

December 19, 2013

By now, you’ve probably heard about A&E’s suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson because of a few remarks he made about gay men.  During an interview with GQ, the hokey backwoods Robertson said the following controversial statement after a long segment on God, religion, and the ’60s: It seems like, to me, a vagina [...]

AFN Back Up and Running

October 7, 2013

Yesterday, the most watchable Sunday NFL pregame show (Fox) brought national attention to another way Americans are being impacted punitively by this very subjective government shutdown — the shutting down of the Armed Forces Network (AFN) for our troops overseas: Since that broadcast yesterday the government relented and the AFN is back up and running.  [...]

Beck Weighs In on Musburger Controversy

January 11, 2013

While the BCS National Championship between Notre Dame and Alabama was still competitive (which, if you were watching, wasn’t long unfortunately), ESPN commentator Brent Musburger said this about Katherine Webb, Ms. Alabama and Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend: At the time I didn’t think it was weird — Musburger’s an old guy (73) and let’s [...]

Glenn Beck’s Piss Obama Pisses Off Liberal Hypocrites

November 28, 2012

Glenn Beck isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I like him more often than not.  Like him or not, he certainly knows how to make a point in a provocative way.  He did just that on Tuesday when he responded to the latest artist to depict President Obama as Jesus Christ by submerging an Obama [...]

Beck’s Take on the Benghazi Attack

September 22, 2012

It’s been fascinating to watch the Obama Administration hang itself on all the inconsistencies relating to the 9/11 terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi.  Some believe that all the confusion paints a picture of an administration in disarray, which may give some indeterminate political advantage to Romney in this election game of inches. Yet, [...]

The Glenn Beck Show Ends

June 30, 2011

After 29 months, Glenn Beck just finished his final show on the Fox News Channel.  Deciding that he needs to move on from TV and leave with his soul, Beck will continue his struggle to restore America as best he can using other mediums. I’m going to miss his show, even more than when Rush [...]

The “Why I’m a Democrat” Video

June 28, 2011

The Right Scoop was able to get a hold of a College Democrat video which was taken down for obvious reasons once you see it.  Because it’s so embarrassing, I believe the “Why I’m a Democrat” video needs to be shared widely.  Beck and crew have a blast with it in the first clip!  However, [...]

Glenn Beck to Leave Fox Full-time

April 7, 2011

Yesterday, Beck addressed his audience regarding the rumors about him leaving Fox News.  Here’s the link of the announcement in his own words.  Some people are sad, some are reveling in it.  In the meantime, Beck should still be on live at 5pm for a few more months. While the occasional crying, the periods of [...]

R Lee Ermey Goes Off on Obama

December 30, 2010

The indomitable R. Lee Ermey had this to say recently at a “Toys For Tots” fundraiser: Ermey — Glenn Beck fan?  Sweet!  Probably into the Tea Party too. Hat tip:  Hot Air.

Nigel Farage: EU Tirade Awesomeness

November 30, 2010

Check out MEP (Member of European Parliament) and UK Independence Party Nigel Farage’s tirade against the EU, their bailout policies, and their disdain for democracy.  I saw this clip on Beck last night and feel that adding it to the echo chamber is appropriate:

“Restoring Honor” Rally a Success

August 30, 2010

In case you missed it, Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington was a complete success, focusing on honoring our troops and their sacrifices as well as focusing on returning to God.  I watched the first hour on C-Span Saturday morning through Sarah Palin’s speech honoring those serving in the military.  She was slated to [...]

Gutfeld on Tolerance and the Ground Zero Mosque

August 11, 2010

Here’s a truly priceless clip from a segment on Glenn Beck’s show last night, where Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld explains his proposal for a new establishment to open right next door to the planned Cordoba Mosque, which as you know is being built in the shadows of Ground Zero: Ah, the beauty of tolerance [...]

Bush Would “Do It Again”

June 3, 2010

Sometimes I miss Dubya.  Yeah, his speech delivery made me wince a lot, and yes his “compassionate conservatism” sounded a lot like watered-down liberalism in retrospect, and yes the “Ownership Society” of universal home-ownership contributed to (he wasn’t alone in all that) the biggest economic bubble in human history, but I do miss the other [...]

Guess Who’s Marching in Trenton!

May 22, 2010

Today, May 22, was selected as the day on which the New Jersey Education Association planned to have a rally in Trenton to show Chris Christie how upset they are about the proposed pension changes.  I, of course, as a reluctant member of that increasingly pointless union was cordially invited — they were even providing [...]

ACORN’s Latest “Bowel Movement”

April 22, 2010

In case you were wondering, ACORN is still in the tank after the you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up pimp scandal last year, but their CEO Bertha Lewis is in the news once again.  This time she refers to the Tea Party Movement as a “bowel movement!”  Her audience was (no shock here) the Young Democratic Socialists.  Here’s the clip: [...]

“The Coming Insurrection” in Greece

March 4, 2010

Last week I posted on the violence in Greece due to the first signs of the collapsing of the Bismarckian welfare state, which has been the norm in Europe for a hundred years.  The significance of this and the rest of the PIIGS in Europe is that the trends facing Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and [...]

The Problem with the “PIIGS”

February 15, 2010

If you haven’t heard about the acronym “PIIGS” yet, I’ll let you in on it:  PIIGS stands for Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain — countries in the European Union on the verge of economic collapse.  Of the five nations in trouble, Greece is the closest to collapse and the youth in the streets have [...]

What’s the Big Deal about Sarah Stumping for McCain?

January 22, 2010

No one can ever accuse me of being a fan of Arizona Sen. John McCain.  True, I’ve always admired his service in the war, and also some of his views on spending and his consistent refusal to take earmarks.  Yet at the same time, his constant focus on bi-partisanship and coddling up to the media [...]

Beck on the Progressives Post-Brown

January 20, 2010

Yesterday, I was watching Beck when he made an interesting point about moving forward from Scott Brown’s glorious election in Massachusetts yesterday.  Run-of-the-mill Democrats would know how to react to Brown’s victory; they’d run to the middle and try to depict themselves as reasonable moderates who went astray and now got the message.  However, we [...]

The Case Against Third Party Politics

December 8, 2009

Since the start of the Tea Party movement, talk of a Conservative third party has peculated on Twitter, around the blogosphere, and even making it into news punditry, advocated by such media heavyweights as Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Lou Dobbs.  While the idea of a ideological Conservative party seems like a good one intuitively, [...]

I Miss Bush

November 12, 2009

Today, former President George W. Bush gave a speech at Southern Methodist University, the future home of his Presidential Library and think-tank.  Here’s the clip from Fox News today covering the speech: Warning of the temptation to believe government is the solution to our problems, hearing Dubya’s voice with all the occasionally misspoken words, thinking [...]

Glenn Beck on the Millennial “Me” Generation

October 28, 2009

Any chance I get to wreck on the Millennial Generation (depending on who you speak to, it’s those born between 1982 and 1999), is a chance that I’m going to take.  I don’t loathe them, but since I’ve been teaching them for nine years I know that not only are they one day going to [...]

The War Against Fox News

October 19, 2009

The Obama administration is sure spending a lot of time attacking Fox News.  White House Communications Director Anita Dunn made a point of it, saying that Fox was wing of the GOP: We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.  As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the [...]

Stepping Back to Look at the Health Care Debate

October 18, 2009

Jay D. Homnick writing for the American Spectator had a clever article this week where he steps back and takes a clear-eyed view at the health care debate.  The following day, the Glenn Beck Show had dozens of doctors on to talk about their view of what Washington’s poised to do.  One of the similar criticisms between them was [...]

Glenn Beck Responds To His Critics

October 6, 2009

Glenn Beck has been in the news a lot lately, from an attack piece in Time Magazine to questions of whether or not he is good for Conservatism.  The State-Run media is even hinting that his mother committed suicide when he was a kid.  Beck responded on his show yesterday, in classic Beck fashion: I [...]

Radical Van Jones Resigns

September 6, 2009

Commie radical 9/11 Truther Van Jones has quietly resigned from his position as Obama’s Green Jobs Czar.  I figured this would be a gamble for Obama:  he obviously couldn’t fire him, but letting him resign quietly in the middle of a holiday weekend before Obama’s busy week of youth indoctrination and shilling radical health care reform in front [...]

The Van Jones Affair

September 4, 2009

Radical communist activist Van Jones is President Obama’s Green Jobs “Advisor” and has such dangerous views it would cause most to question what he’s doing there.  While crickets sound from the MSM, Glenn Beck has been all over this.  Here’s a clip from yesterday’s show where he goes through Van Jones’s issues and others who surround [...]
