Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was Jay Leno’s guest on the Tonight Show Friday, and he didn’t have kind things to say about the current White House resident or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
At one point in their discussion, Romney said, "I'm not a fan of the president - in case you didn't know that."
Jay Leno continued his humorous attack on the White House Thursday.
At the beginning of a series of opening monologue jokes about the various scandals plaguing President Obama, the NBC Tonight Show host said, “If Republicans really want to do away with ObamaCare, they should endorse it as a conservative non-profit - let the IRS take it down” (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
The Hollywood Left just can’t resist shoving its anti-conservative invective into prime time TV shows, even an over-the-top, melodramatic soap-opera with ludicrous plots like ABC’s Washington, DC-set Scandal, which has its season finale at 10 PM EDT/PDT tonight.
On last week’s episode, a lead character ominously warned that if the current Vice President, a conservative woman Republican, made it to the Oval Office, she “and her conservative overlords” will impinge on “the rights” of African-Americans and raise the specter of the devil.
With the entertainment industry pumping out a different crop of reality shows every season, a new phenomenon had occurred. Business, success, and making money are suddenly portrayed positively. Reality shows depict business as a positive thing because, in reality, average Americans don’t see business and money as an inherently bad thing. That’s a complete turn-around from how businessmen have been pictured in scripted TV.
There are more than a dozen reality shows that portray a softer, more human side to businessmen and women. A&E has had huge success with its show “Duck Dynasty” that follows the self-made millionaire family that invented and patented the Duck Commander Duck Call. In fact, the season three finale of “Duck Dynasty” that aired on April 24, 2013 broke records with an astounding 9.6 million viewers.
PBS has announced its new fall schedule, and it unfolds like a reinforced liberal stereotype. It includes a "landmark" six-hour series on Latino-American history narrated by Benjamin Bratt, and a six-hour series on African-American history narrated by Henry Louis “Beer Summit” Gates, from America's colonial period "up to the present day — when America has a black president yet remains a nation divided by race."
The liberal network will air a “Great Performances” special titled “Barbra Streisand: Back to Brooklyn,” and, of course, to mark the 50th anniversary of the dark day in Dallas when President Kennedy was shot and killed, PBS is planning hours and hours of JFK specials:
ACLU Action, a new initiative of the American Civil Liberties Union, has launched a campaign pressuring ABC and the producers of the sitcom "Modern Family" to make a gay-wedding episode for the characters Cam and Mitchell. They created a website at ModernFamilyWedding.com.
"The freedom to marry is being advanced in American living rooms as much as in court rooms," said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. "As we wait for the Supreme Court to rule, we want to keep this issue on the minds and screens of Americans everywhere."
“Assault on Wall Street,” directed by Uwe Boll and starring Dominic Purcell, takes the liberal agenda to a whole new level. Every possible liberal ideal – anti-gun, anti-capitalism, the evils of health insurance companies, crazy gun supporters – is depicted in this 1 hour and 39 minute movie, which was released on May 10 in limited theaters and on Amazon instant video.
Within the first ten minutes, viewers were introduced to evil Wall Street executive Jeremy Stancroft (John Heard) saying, “Our responsibility begins and ends with our partners and shareholders and that is it.”
If “Inferno” is anything like Dan Brown’s other novels, we can count on two things: crackpot conspiracy theories from the author and breathless hype from his fans in the media.
“The Da Vinci Code,” author’s new thriller hits bookshelves May 14, 2013. “Inferno” takes place in Italy, where the protagonist, “battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science” while unraveling Dante’s classic poem.
The 2012 annual report on priestly sexual abuse in the Catholic Church featured an audit done by StoneBridge Business Partners, and the data were gathered by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA).
The report on sexual abuse, part of an annual audit, is available on the website of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Apparently, almost no one has read it. Not a single secular newspaper in the United States reported on it.
Susan Jones at CNSNews.com noted that on Monday night, conservative lawyer and radio host Mark Levin told Fox News's Sean Hannity that the emerging scandal over politics at the IRS exposes "the passivity and timidity of Congress."
"The fact is, a year ago Congress should have been calling witnesses before their committees, should have placed them under oath, should have been pursuing possible perjury claims and should have gotten to the bottom of this before the election cycle ran out." Levin has routinely found House Speaker John Boehner to be too passive with Team Obama.
Sure, it was just one of those tongue-tied moments we've all experienced. But if it had been George W. Bush mispronouncing the name of a world leader who is very much in the news, imagine the field day the MSM would have had with it.
At his press appearance with British PM David Cameron today, aired on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports, President Obama was seen pronouncing the name of the Syrian dictator Bashir Assad as "Bassar Ashad." PBO pauses before pronouncing, seeming to sense he's about to get it wrong, but decides to plunge ahead. There's another priceless moment: when the show cuts back to the studio, guest-hosting Chuck Todd is seen with a hilariously baffled look on his face. View the video after the jump.
Washington Post sports columnist Mike Wise was obnoxious enough when he was mocking the Old Testament and the Ten Commandments, but in Sunday's paper, he tries to be humorous by suggesting how Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper at age 20 is greater than most of our greatest humans when they were 20: better than Thomas Edison, better than Albert Einstein, better than Gandhi, and better than Franklin Roosevelt.
That may be true in history, but then Wise had to drag in Jesus Christ. How do you compare God to a baseball star? But Wise just thinks religion is something he can pick on weekly:
The Arts section of Sunday’s Washington Post was dominated by articles analyzing the cultural importance of the Ballet Russes and its role in European modernism. For Post dance critic Sarah Kaufman, it represented “The ascent of men, the haven for gays.”
This ballet troupe was a “tremendous force in modern art and modern mores” all the way back in the 1920s, as the focus on male dancers and the ballet's sexual sensibility could represent “one big orgy” or “a living wet dream”:
Many conservatives were disgusted this year when "2016: Obama's America" didn't receive an Oscar nomination for best documentary.
In a letter to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Hawk Koch obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, one of the film's producers, Gerald Molen, has asked for Michael Moore to be removed from the documentary branch of the Academy's board of governors:
