Written by Gary North on October 10, 2015


Matt Drudge appeared on Alex Jones’s Infowars. Here is how he has been quoted. On the future of digital copyright: “I had a Supreme Court justice tell me to my face it’s over for me. Said, ‘Matt, it’s over for you. They’ve got the votes now to enforce copyright law. You’re out of there. They’re […]

Teaching Literature With Movies

Written by Gary North on October 3, 2015


I teach literature after 1938 by teaching movies — mostly American movies. Here’s why: http://www.ronpaulcurriculum.com/public/6276.cfmThere is an academic bias against movies as literature. Yet movies are clearly literature: stories that grab our attention. How many novels can a student read in a semester? How many movies can a student see? If we teach by examples, […]

Bad News for Traditional Catholics: Rev. Jim Wallis Cheers the Pope

Written by Gary North on September 26, 2015


Rev. Jim Wallis is ecstatic about the Pope’s visit to America. This is bad news for traditional Catholics. Having Jim Wallis on your side is comparable to getting full support from the Italian army. Who is Jim Wallis? He is this century’s #1 spokesman for Progressivism’s social gospel to the evangelical-fundamentalist Right. America’s Leftist media […]

Written by Gary North on September 19, 2015

Back to the Future Plus 30 Years

Written by Gary North on July 4, 2015


Thirty years ago marked the release date of Back to the Future. I mention this to call attention to a life marker. When it came out in 1985, it inspired a wave of nostalgia about 1955. I was in high school in 1955. A lot of that movie looked familiar. Now comes the double whammy. […]

Some cable channel known as TV Land has pulled The Dukes Of Hazzard off the air. In the 1980’s show, there was a 1969 Dodge Charger with a stars and bars flag painted on the roof. It was named “General Lee.” But in today’s era of political correctness, the car might as well have been […]

Helicopter Money and the MSM

Posted on June 6, 2015


by David Stockman It is hard to believe that in these allegedly enlightened times this question even needs to be asked. Are there really educated adults who believe that by dropping helicopter money conjured from thin air, the central bank can actually make society wealthier? Well, yes there are.

Jeff Daniels on Guitar

Written by Gary North on May 23, 2015

One of my top four favorite movies is Gettysburg (1993). I love it most of all because of Jeff Daniels’ portrayal of Col. Joshua Chamberlain, the hero of Little Round Top. Chamberlain was a master of rhetoric. He taught it. He wrote it. Daniels got into the spirit of the character. He is a first-rate […]
