Sucked in by Hollywood Screen Writers

Written by Gary North on February 20, 2016

More than any other writers, screenwriters can persuade us to suspend disbelief. The story moves fast. The technology draws us into the story. We question almost nothing. We are manipulated. We pay money to be manipulated. It’s entertainment, so we do not care. Hollywood has understood this, all the way back to D. W. Griffith’s […]

Video: A Low-Budget Trump YouTube Ad

Written by Gary North on January 16, 2016

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 […]

Ken Burns on Star Wars

Written by Gary North on December 26, 2015

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

By Dan Gainor It was five years before the turn of the century and major media were warning of disastrous climate change.

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.

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 […]
