Seth Rogen Compares Movie “American Sniper” To Nazi Propaganda…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. The same Seth Rogen piece of garbage conservatives rallied around when his movie lampooning North Korea was yanked from theaters. Via Project Casting: Seth Rogen is the latest among a series of actors and critics calling the latest box office hit American Sniper, which opened to $105 million dollars over the weekend. Seth Rogen tweeted “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.” The movie Seth Rogen is referring to is the Nazi propaganda film called Stolz der Nation (Nation’s Pride) which showed a German sniper killing […]

Liam Neeson Hates Guns, Except When He Uses Them In Movies

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com.  Just another brain-dead Hollywood liberal that thinks since he’s made a few million by playing make-believe in front of the cameras, he can tell us we shouldn’t enjoy our 2nd Amendment rights. Recently in Dubai, he gave an interview and the subject of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks came up. After paying the usual lip service to those that were killed, he then went on a short blame-America-first rant. “First off, my thoughts and prayers and my heart are with the deceased, and certainly with all of France, yesterday. I’ve got a lot of dear friends in […]

Those We Lost In 2014…A Look Back

As we draw another year to a close, let us take a few minutes to remember some of those celebrities and notable public figures that took their leave of this world in the year 2014. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   The United States Military Personnel, are a brave lot. They don their country’s uniform, and go out to all corners of the world to provide humanitarian relief, conduct rescue operations and, when the need arises, they fight our enemies and keep the rest of us safe, here at home. They do so at great sacrifice, sometimes it is, unfortunately, the ultimate sacrifice. But remember what […]

Twenty years ago, the hit movie “Forrest Gump” shifted the career of actor Gary Sinise into high gear. The Illinois native played the character Lt. Dan Taylor, the badly wounded Vietnam War Vet who later becomes Forrest Gump’s shrimp boat partner and best friend. Long involved in efforts to support […]

NFL Player On Ferguson: “The Problem Is Not A Skin Problem, It Is A Sin Problem”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This shows that there is hope for our country, and besides, this young man makes a lot of sense. “I’M ENCOURAGED, because ultimately the problem is not a SKIN problem, it is a SIN problem. SIN is the reason we rebel against authority. SIN is the reason we abuse our authority. SIN is the reason we are racist, prejudiced and lie to cover for our own. SIN is the reason we riot, loot and burn.” Via Right Scoop: New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson wrote a very honest assessment of how he feels about what happened […]

Dana Carvey: Liberals ‘Brutalize’ Conservative Comics

Actor and Comedian Dana Carvey. (Bryan Bedder/Getty Images) Hat/Tip to John Blosser at Newsmax. Many of us remember him from his impersonations of Dan Quayle, H. Ross Perot, Jimmy Stewart, Johnny Carson or even Keith Richards. Or as The Church Lady, Hans (from Hans and Franz), or the ever popular Garth from Wayne’s World. So to say that Dana Carvey is mulit-talented comedian would be understating it. His career post Saturday Night Live seemed to be taking off. Then in the late ’90s he underwent a simple heart-bypass operation. However, the surgeon worked on the wrong artery, and Dana’s health worsened. […]

Film Director Oliver Stone Says He ‘Admires’ Vladimr Putin Who ‘Saved Russia’

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Conspiracy nut and far left film maker, Oliver Stone is at it again. It isn’t enough that he called Reagan “one dumb son of a bitch,” or drew a line (what line, we don’t know, only that in his twisted mind there is a line) from Nixon to Reagan to Bush the younger. Once again, it is a celebrity who has no clue of politics pretending that he is an authority on the subject. Any high school student who studies Barry Goldwater knows that if anyone “gave” us Ronald Reagan, it was Goldwater. Nixon was a big […]

Garth Brooks on Obama: “I love him to death and I fully support him…”

Hat/Tip to CNSNews. Okay, this is proof positive that you can publish 12 studio albums, with 6 of them achieving Diamond Status (sales of 10 million +), giving you total record sales of 123 million, win two Grammy Awards, 15 American Music Awards, 11 CMA Awards, have a net worth somewhere north of $350 million and STILL be utterly clueless when it comes to politics. As an entertainer, he is brilliant. His over-the-top concerts with a ‘rock concert’ feel to them laid the foundation for today’s hot country acts like Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, etc… Brooks has […]
