I just saw this on Ace of Spades and also saw it linked in the previous thread. Can you believe this got greenlit? Talk about low-hanging fruit!
Have at it, Buzzers.
Alinsky, you magnificent bastard, we read your book!
RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” It helps if it’s funny, too.
“Politics is downstream from culture.” I remember hearing Andrew Breitbart say this once in an interview and realized that we as conservative libertarians had a tough assignment as a result. Glenn Beck has been working with his Mercury multi-media company to provide a high-quality alternative to what the liberal media and arts communities push on us. Today Kevin commented in his post about movies and theaters that by “taking the high road” we are left being ignorant of pop culture.
At the FreePac event in Dallas last month Dana Loesch reminded us that we are the counter-culture movement today. She exhorted us to get connected through Facebook, Twitter, blogs and such and make our presence known.
When Chick-fil-A was attacked we came out in droves to support them. I would love to see us do the same thing for the arts. Not only does being aware of what’s trending in today’s culture help us to understand it and the worldview that supports it, it can help us to tweak it and bend it toward what is more in tune with our mindset.
I posted Kalai’s music above as an example of someone “cool” who we can help support and promote. I heard this guy first on Glenn Beck and have subsequently acquired a couple of his albums. I think he is brilliant! Find out more about Kalai here.
Let’s vote with our wallets and our social media to get the kind of culture we would like. Down the road it will help to form the political climate we need to restore our nation.
Can you share with us some artists you like who promote a conservative libertarian view?
Here is one All-American Hero. An extraordinary citizen making a difference.
From the Washington Post: “Iowa deli co-owner caters for Obama visit, but his T-shirt tells another story”
What’s on your mind this Wednesday evening? What are people in your neck of the woods discussing? What are you working on to help restore honor and first principles to this fine nation?
If you do one thing today in defense of our nation, I ask that you view this 22 minute long video.
From The Blaze: “A group of former Navy SEALs, members of Delta Force, the Marines, Army Special Forces and the intelligence community have joined together and are standing up, demanding that America’s political leaders immediately stop leaking sensitive military information.”

Please watch this. Please share with others. Please act on it in whatever positive, uplifting and honorable way your conscience sees fit.
God bless these brave patriots and their loved ones. And may God continue to bless and protect America.
You will swear this is from The Onion, but it’s not. Interesting that they have disabled comments.
The mind reels.
What say we deconstruct this?
VIDEO OF THE DAY! Please check this out at Breitbart.com. Brilliant.
This is why I love this guy!
Clever video mocking the O. Disillusionment hangs heavy in the air. Love it when Alinskyites are Alinskyed.

While at Restoring Love last week in Dallas, one of the events my family attended was a screening of the documentary, Runaway Slave. It was profoundly moving and eye-opening. We had the privilege of viewing the film and then having a short Q&A with C.L. Bryant, Alveda King, and others who were part of the documentary.
Here is what Runaway Slave’s website has to say:
“In RUNAWAY SLAVE, an intriguing new documentary that opens in theaters this summer, Rev. C.L. Bryant journeys across America to find answers. A one-time NAACP local chapter president, Rev. Bryant discovers that by buying into the entitlement mindset of ‘progressives,’ the black community has traded one form of tyranny for another.
Using leading black conservatives as ‘conductors,’ Rev. Bryant believes it is time for a new Underground Railroad to help liberate all Americans from the Government plantation that has left the black community dealing with a new form of slavery: entitlements.
‘Why are we still thinking we are not free at last? What ideas are keeping us down?’ Rev. Bryant asks. ‘For too long, we have been depending on other people for our success. We have to pursue our happiness; our happiness is not provided to us. If we are relying on someone else for our wellbeing, that in itself is a form of slavery.’
From our nation’s capital and freedom’s birthplace, to the dens of slavery and Jim Crow, to wherever a light for liberty is shining, this runaway slave looks to bring hope to the oppressed. Among the leaders he talks with along the way are Dr. King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King; former presidential candidate Herman Cain; Congressman Allen West; economist and author Dr. Thomas Sowell; talk-show host and author Glenn Beck; the late Andrew Breitbart. We also meet a new generation of young freedom fighters who are on the front lines of change!
Rev. Bryant’s conclusion? It’s time to run. ‘Run away from economic slavery. Run toward the blessings of liberty. Let us remain strong in this fight. Run away from socialism; run away from progressivism. And if you get tired, America … run harder!’
This summer, celebrate your freedom by running as fast and as hard as you can to see RUNAWAY SLAVE in theaters.”
I strongly recommend going to see this film if it is playing in your community. The film’s creators are working to meet the criteria for public screenings so that this work can be considered for the Documentary category for the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) awards. Let’s help make that happen!
If you’ve already seen the movie, please let us know your thoughts and reactions.
This exceptional gentleman has joined my Conservative Fantasy Team’s first string. He has shown courage, integrity and perseverance during the Fast and Furious hearings as well as in other situations.
With the likes of Congressman Gowdy, Congressman West, Liz Cheney, Sarah Palin and numerous others on our side we will prevail.
Who are some of the people you admire? Let’s support, emulate, and hold in prayer these soldiers for the cause.
