A twisted love for totalitarians permeates much of the Hollywood culture. Roger L. Simon, Hollywood screenwriter and PJ Media CEO, profiles his friend, Cuban-American actor Andy Garcia, on the occasion of an anti-Castro demonstration in LA.

When liberal policies fail, good liberals do not go back to the drawing board. They see themselves challenged to produce a logical contortion that explains why they are not at fault.br /br /When it comes to dealing with those who take exception to liberal orthodoxy, many of today’s liberals are intolerant to an extreme. If liberalism began in the nineteenth century by asserting the value of freedom, today’s true liberals are really libertarians. Old style liberals believed in free markets, free trade, free speech, and the free and open exchange of ideas. Many of today’s liberals believe in none of it./blockquote
Here's how newspapers can bring back back older readers and amass a strong following of readers from younger generations.
Threats have no place in any political discourse in the U.S. — but conservatives can't afford to let over-dramatized threats either paralyze them or goad them into stupidity. (Watch the latest Hicks File, and comment here.)
Just Journalism, a British think tank monitoring coverage of Israel, reports that the UN Human Rights Commission will examine the libelous charge.
We can multiculturalize and kowtow all we want, but in the end, it’s the Islamists' way or the highway — unless, of course, they are defeated. Useful idiots like Matthew Modine are not helping matters.
Who would you bet on? Chicago politician or Israeli special ops guy?
Call them the "Passover Bunnies." After all, the word rabbit is rabbi with a T.
Frum is continuing to make the strongest case possible for a Republican alternative that can reach the wide public at large.
VDH looks back — with some astonishment — at the way the rules of "proper" political discourse for the right-thinking have changed since November 2008.
He ran the British blockade in 1947-1948. Where are his counterparts today?
Jeff Goldstein from Protein Wisdom responds to my articlea href=”http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=17581″ on liberals and lack of empathy:/abr /br /blockquoteOf course, to be fair, the “right” exhibits its share of intolerance — which, like that from the left, generally manifests in a kind of ostentatious public sanctimony. The difference is, for all the worry we consistently hear about the “religious right” threatening to turn the US into a theocracy, very rarely will we see any actual agitation for from mainstream conservatives to turn religious doctrine into state or federal law. Whereas the churches of environmentalism and government-mandated “charity” (which isn’t; charity tends not to be backed by fines and guns) have joined up, of late, into fortify the Church of Progressivism, which is very quickly becoming a de facto “official” church of the United States./blockquote
Wachovia/Wells Fargo Bank thought "Earth Hour" was a great idea. Brilliant, in fact.
I have a column up at PJM: a href=”http://pjmedia.com/blog/how-should-conservatives-deal-with-the-lefts-disrespect-and-lack-of-empathy/”"How Should Conservatives Deal with the Left’s Disrespect and Lack of Empathy?”/abr /blockquoteGiving in only wastes valuable time that could be put to better use and makes liberals more likely to treat us poorly./blockquotebr /br /a href=”http://pjmedia.com/blog/how-should-conservatives-deal-with-the-lefts-disrespect-and-lack-of-empathy/”You can read the rest here./a
Terrorists can use guns, make bombs, and survive in caves. Liberals are scared of loud noises and apparently can't survive if their every need isn't provided for by the federal government.
Giving in only wastes valuable time that could be put to better use and makes liberals more likely to treat us poorly.
What else explains the high level of ideological support among the intelligentsia for massive deficits?
In reality, governors can’t do much about illegal immigration — and they shouldn’t grandstand while trying to prove otherwise.
Retired Major General Robert A. Harding once claimed that he was disabled — by sleep apnea! — to help score his company a $99.7 million Army contract.
When what is reported is a distorted "media reality," we can always learn to adapt, to distort it back to a semblance of reality — but we lose information. But information is so important that gross distortions are impossible to accept.
Can you guess which rally was an epicenter of hate, racism, and craziness? (And be sure to check out PJTV: Sarah Palin Takes on Harry Reid and the Lame Stream Media in Searchlight)
Despite Putin's claims to the contrary, the Muslim separatists show no sign of giving in to the authorities who are engaged in a bloody crackdown on civilians in the region.
Whether or not it ultimately leads to victory will largely be a question of will.
I wasn’t in Pelosi’s strategy meeting that day, but I’ll tell you what I think went on in there. (Also read Roger L. Simon: America the Hateful)
