Video: A Low-Budget Trump YouTube Ad

Written by Gary North on January 16, 2016

trump

I do not put any hope in national politics. But Donald Trump is about to pull off the first hijacking of the Republican Establishment since Barry Goldwater did it in 1964. This has happened only once before: in 1964. William Jennings Bryan pulled it off in 1896 in the Democratic Party. This changed American politics. […]

Eva Cassidy Sings from Beyond the Grave

Written by Gary North on December 26, 2015

Until this week, I had never heard of Eva Cassidy. I was sent a link to her version of “Over the Rainbow.” The man who sent it to me admitted that had never heard of her. Someone had sent him the link. It has had over two million hits in just one year. She has […]

Here, we see Burns’ artistry at its best. Were it not for the crummy ad that precedes it, the experience would be flawless. Forward this to your friends. The Force commands it. Both sides.

Posted on December 19, 2015

global-warming

By Dan Gainor It was five years before the turn of the century and major media were warning of disastrous climate change. Page six of The New York Times was headlined with the serious concerns of “geologists.” Only the president at the time wasn’t Bill Clinton; it was Grover Cleveland. And the Times wasn’t warning […]

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, […]

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 […]

Here was the leading news story on Google News at 9 a.m. on September 18. NBC’s Today ran this as its lead story that morning. Liberal journalists think that these headlines will pillory Trump. On the contrary, they will reinforce support from his base. It is likely that these headlines will attract independents. Basically, liberals […]

Back to the Future Plus 30 Years

Written by Gary North on July 4, 2015

SlideRule

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. […]
