Dwight Schultz of A-Team and Star Trek fame has a podcast worth listening to. In it has covers various subjects such as American politics, international affairs, Hollywood and at other times he just goes on an epic rant.
While most remember Dwight Schultz as Howling Mad Murdoch from The A-Team, I find myself appreciating his talents more on Star Trek where he played Lt. Reginald Barclay, a gifted physicist and engineer who suffers from severe anxiety disorder as well as a speech impediment. It is for this reason and the sheer ignorance of others which causes him to not be taken seriously, although he is more talented than almost everyone around him.
Very few superstar celebrities from entertainment actually take the time to do serious homework and can quote real evidence and arguments with the very best of them. Chuck Woolery is such a person, as are James Woods, Dwight Schultz, Dirk Benedict, Adam Baldwin, Kevin and Sam Sorbo.
Others worth mentioning are David Mamet and the late Ron Silver, who after they had made their fame and fortune, took the time to dig deep into the issues and completely abandoned the leftist orthodoxy.
I am sure that I am missing a few that are worth mentioning but no insult is intended.
Getting back to Chuck Woolery, not only does he do his homework, but he is very clever. Enjoy the following:
Woolery has his own podcast called Blunt Force Truth which can be listened to on Tunein, itunes and Stitcher.
If you might recall, Memories Pizza was the target of a “Fake News” story saying that they would not serve gay people, when in reality what really happened was that one person there said that they would not feel comfortable participating in a gay wedding because of their faith. All of this was an effort to smear freedom of religion and Governor Mike Pence when the Hobby Lobby case was hot in the news.
It was good to see Milo go to Memories Pizza and let them simply have their say.
In the interests of full disclosure Memories Pizza is near my home town and I have eaten there. The food was great.
The elite media is a bubble as we have seen by this past election. A previous example is when the New York Times’ lone “conservative columnist” announced that he was voting for Bill Clinton. To be fair, Safire did come back around to a degree.
The modern version, albeit worse, is the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin whose column is wrongfully named “Right Turn”. Rubin has been on a hate screed against any Republican bucking the corrupt status quo for years. You do not have to take our word for it, just browse her columns and start reading what she has to say about Republican reformers just since 2009. Rubin is indeed the far left’s favorite “”””Republican”””.
There is an important distinction between having a problem with excessive and unwise immigration policy and having a problem with an immigrant simply because he or she happens to be an immigrant. One position is perfectly reasonable, the other is much less so. Imagine how easy it is to word an immigration question to get the desired result of “Trump voters don’t like immigrants.”
In this video Rubin cites “polls” who go unnamed that she says back up her claim. Rubin knew Carlson was going to ask her about this as that is almost all he has done on his show since the election and yet she provided no citation, nor did she cite a verifiable one in her column.
The predominantly Christian country of Slovakia passed a law on Nov. 30 that effectively bans Islam as an officially recognized religion, which also blocks Islam from receiving any state subsidies for its schools, reported Reuters.
The prime minister, Robert Fico, said in May that “Islam has no place” in Slovakia. Prior to the law being passed, Slovak National Party Chairman Andrej Danko said, “Islamization starts with a kebab and it’s already under way in Bratislava — let’s realize what we can face in 5 to 10 years.”
“We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in the future,” said Danko.
“Happy Holidays” is designed to be exclusive and discriminatory and progressives well know it.

The true meaning of Thanksgiving is no longer taught in public schools.
A review of the history shows that it starts with a search for religious freedom, a rejection of collectivism and thanks to God Almighty for his blessings. Governor William Bradford’s journal and other documents reveal it all.
Every year Rush Limbaugh read s the passages from Gov. Bradford’s journal and explains it from the point of view of those who were there. Listen to the audio HERE. Read the transcript HERE.
Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789
By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and—Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favor, able interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other trangressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
Democrats in the elite media have been scream every “ist” word they can think of as Donald Trump’s transition is under way, so what better time to go back in time and take our Democrat friends on a little stroll through sexist memory lane!
Here is just a residue of the evidence for a candid world to review.
Democrats repeatedly accused South Carolina Governor Candidate Nikki Haley of having multiple affairs, but never offered proof to support it.
Fox TV in Boston actually asked people on the streets if they thought Palin had gotten implants. [Editor’s Note – to see the video of what Fox25 did just follow the NewsBusters link; it is truly disgraceful. Honestly if that reporter had come up to me and started enquiring about any politicians boobs I would have thrown my drink in her face. That reporter is demeaning the profession. When I learned journalistic ethics the questions asked are: Does the story really matter. Does the story do more harm than good. Is it relevant? Is it true, if so can we prove it?]
Of course JWF has the evidence to show that they are NOT fake – LINK
The first stage of Conservative Female Abuse by the Left is infantilization. Right-wing women can’t possibly believe what they believe about the sanctity of life, self-defense, free markets, or foreign policy. They must be submissive little dolls of the White Male Hierarchy. Or, as a far Left (is there any other kind of Left in San Francisco?) San Francisco Chronicle columnist wrote of First Lady Laura Bush, they must be put in their place as “docile doormats” with no brains of their own.
The second stage of CFA is sexualization. A conservative woman is not merely a sellout. She is an intellectual prostitute. Unable or unwilling to argue with them on the merits, detractors resort to mocking the physical appearance of their ideological opponents in skirts and denigrating them with vulgar epithets. MSNBC hosts insulted former GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson’s accomplished wife and mother of two, Jeri Thompson, as working the stripper pole. Newspaper cartoonists Ted Rall, Pat Oliphant, and Jeff Danziger caricatured Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a mammy, thick-lipped parrot, and Bush “House Nigga” armed with “hair straightener.” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd derided former GOP Florida secretary of state Katherine Harris for applying “her makeup with a trowel.”
True to form, Dowd was first out of the box to snicker at Gov. Palin’s beauty pageant past, ridicule her “beehive and sexy shoes,” and compare her path to the vice presidential nomination as a “hokey chick flick.” Joe Biden backhandedly praised her as “good looking.” And left-wing bloggers worked overtime on lurid photoshops of Palin as a bikini model and porn star. At the Democratic Underground, a highly trafficked liberal website raising money for Barack Obama, members held a contest to come up with nicknames and posters to slime GOP Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. [Editor’s Note – the names they came up with are not safe for work. One of the nicer ones was VPILTF (VP I’d like to F**K)].
The third stage of CFA is demonization. When the Left tires of hurling whore insults, it turns conservative women in the public eye into nefarious creatures. Bill Maher called Laura Bush “Hitler’s dog.” George Carlin attacked Barbara Bush as “the Silver douchebag.” A Huffington Post website member wrote of Nancy Reagan: “Like her evil husband, she has lived far too long. Here’s hoping the hag suffers for several weeks, then croaks in the tub.” Another added: “I feel no pity for the bitch who took delight in watching thousands die of a horrible disease and watching the poor having to eat out of dumpsters because of her husband’s political beliefs.” True to form, rumors of Palin being a crypto-Nazi surfaced on the Internet and the fringe media. And liberal critics used her gun-rights record to smear her as bloodthirsty.
The final stage of CFA is dehumanization. Conservative women aren’t real women according to the liberal feminist establishment’s definition. Remember when Gloria Steinem called Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a “female impersonator?” Or when curdled NOW leader Patricia Ireland instructed Democrats to vote only for “authentic” female political candidates? Or when Al Gore’s fashion consultant Naomi Wolf described the foreign-policy analysis of Jeane Kirkpatrick as being “uninflected by the experiences of the female body?”
Echoing the bottom-feeders in the liberal blogosphere, mainstream journalists and Obama water-carriers now question Palin’s commitment to motherhood and even challenged her pre-natal care decisions in an effort to destroy her.
More Media Bias to the Point of Laughable Stupidity – This one is amuzing as CNN and the Washington Post attacked Palin for saying her husband Todd is a close advisor. Umm how many male presidents and politicians have said that their wife is thier most trusted advisor?
[Note – We included these because one should compare how the coverage of Sarah Palin’s children is totally outrageous yet Joe Biden’s kids have all sorts of troubles and the elite media has next to no coverage.]

Do you have enough qualifications for the job you’re seeking? Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
Aren’t you conceited to be seeking this high level job?

John Edwards Gibson Didn’t Pound Edwards in 2004; Asked Him If GOP Attacks Made Him Mad:
GIBSON: You speak with such equanimity this morning. Didn’t they make you mad last night?
GIBSON: Did you get mad, though?
More – Look at the portions of the interview ABC edited out of the Palin interview. Much of what was edited out was substantive answers that showed she had mastery of the issues – LINK
Zara-Jayne Moisey, 25, from Widnes, has spoken about her “nightmare” and is facing jail in the Middle East after reporting that two men allegedly attacked her in a hotel.
A British woman facing jail for extra-marital sex after reporting an alleged gang rape on holiday in Dubai has told of her “nightmare” and said she’s “petrified”.
Zara-Jayne Moisey, 25, told police in the United Arab Emirates she was violently raped by two British men in the city last month.
But instead of being treated as a victim, Zara, from Widnes, who is single after splitting from her husband, was reportedly locked up on suspicion of extra-marital sex and later charged with the offence.
Her passport has been confiscated and she now faces a trial, claim her family and friends.
Her desperate family have now launched an online appeal to raise £25,000 for the legal fees needed to pay for her defence. So far nearly £15,000 has been raised.
I will be the first to tell you that this is completely anecdotal. I have been talking with my gay friends, most of whom voted for Trump, about their hopes and concerns with the upcoming administration. I have seen patterns in their expressed views.
1 – Like most Americans, they want more economic opportunity and they see bringing an end to government “bigness” as a key to getting that done. Big Wall Street, Big Banks, Big Mega-Corps, Big Government Contractors, The Big Education Cartel, and all of it is strangling our economy with corruption, slanted rules and over regulation.
2 – While some are concerned about Governor Pence’s opposition to gay marriage, many gays also understand that the problem with getting a marriage license by judicial fiat, unconstitutionally by the stroke of a judge’s pen, is that it can be taken away just as easily by the stroke of a judge’s pen, hence the problem with judicial fiat.
3 – The gays I have spoken with understand that true empowerment is more money in your wallet, the choice of having a gun in your hand, and thank you WikiLeaks – access to public information. Without any of those we are all powerless.
Millions of Americans who are smart and want to work have simply been left behind since 1989. Let us never let America fall into such incompetent and corrupt hands ever again.
Thanks to leaked emails form the DNC and the Hillary for President Campaign we now know that scores of elite media reporters essentially work for them, coordinate with them, and even submit their stories to them for approval before handing them over to their editors.
Some are pretending that two weeks before an election stories of women claiming they were groped by the Republican candidate is some how something new. The allegations against Herman Can who ran for president in 2012 were demonstrated to be false and orchestrated by David Axelrod, Barack Obama’s campaign manager.
Powerline takes us in a short trip through memory lane:
Today’s news is dominated by claims that years ago, Donald Trump made crude comments about women, or inappropriately touched women, or intruded into a women’s dressing room, and so on. Gone from the campaign are such issues as the economy, Obamacare, national security and immigration. As Election Day approaches, the news is all Trump scandals, all the time.
Some will say–I may have said–that Republican primary voters asked for it by nominating a man with obvious personal vulnerabilities, instead of a more upright (and more electable) Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Ted Cruz or whoever.
But what’s a Republican to do? Last cycle, we nominated the ultimate Boy Scout: Mitt Romney. Whatever you think of Romney from a policy perspective, he is as admirable a man as you will ever meet. To find a presidential candidate of better moral character, you probably have to go back to Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Romney never said a rude word about a woman in his life.
So what happened? Did Romney and the GOP get credit in the press for the candidates’s outstanding character? No. Romney, who helped to create tens of thousands of jobs at Bain Capital, was denounced as a “vulture capitalist” and blamed, absurdly, for one woman’s developing cancer. The Washington Post made a front page story of the fact that 50 years earlier, when he was in high school, he and others had cut a classmate’s hair. Oh, and Romney was a racist, too. Does anyone remember why? I don’t.
The cycle before that, GOP voters nominated John McCain. McCain is a great patriot, a man of extraordinary character and courage who survived years of torture and abuse as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Did the liberal media give Republicans credit for nominating such a hero? No. The New York Times, to its everlasting shame, peddled a false rumor that McCain had an affair with a lobbyist. (Bill Clinton would have done that before breakfast.) It also berated McCain for failing to release his medical records–which, actually, he did, unlike Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
The Left’s permanent smear campaign against conservatives doesn’t just extend to Republican presidential candidates. Recall how the Democrat/media complex treated the Tea Party. Prominent House Democrats lied, disgracefully: they claimed, falsely, that Tea Party activists at a protest in Washington had hurled racial insults at black Democrats like John Lewis. The press ate it up. They printed the Democrats’ lies as facts, and to this day reporters and editors have never corrected the libel, even though a $100,000 prize to anyone who could substantiate the Democrats’ lies went unclaimed.
The radical left has a series of pressure groups, astroturf groups, foundations and think tanks that are funded by the likes of George Soros, corrupt donors who want favors and contracts, foreign countries, neo-Marxist leftists and others. They network together to give the illusion of “grassroots progressive change”.
In an email between Hillary Campaign Chairman John Podesta and Sanford “Sandy” Newman who runs several of these phony pressure groups, Newman laments that there isn’t some type of Trojan Horse in the Catholic Church that can “plant the seeds of the revolution.” Podesta replies by stating that his people are already on it and have already created two phony astroturf groups that are starting to get to work on the ‘Catholic problem.’
We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up. I’ll discuss with Tara. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is the other person to consult.
UPDATE – Hillary says religious people have to change their religious beliefs on abortion
RACIST!!! We hear this every election season. If “Bush is elected churches will be burned”, “blacks will be dragged on the street by pick up trucks”, Joe Biden said that blacks “will be put back in chains”, etc etc. The fear mongering, divide and conquer tactic has been the staple of the far left campaign book for decades.
The culture clash began to approach a climax last fall, when Mr. Trump’s lawyer sent members of the town council a copy of the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a film that deals with upper-class racism. Mr. Trump then approached the town council about lifting the restrictions that had been placed on the club. He also asked some council members not to vote on the request because their membership in other clubs created a conflict of interest.
Last December, after the council refused to lift the restrictions, Mr. Trump filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Palm Beach, alleging that the town was discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African-Americans. The suit seeks $100 million in damages.
“He put the light on Palm Beach,” then ADL national director Abraham Foxman said after meeting with Trump on the issue. “Not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination. It has an impact.”
Glen A. Larson — who created the hit shows “Magnum P.I.”, “Knight Rider”,”Battlestar Galactica,” “The Fall Guy,” “B.J. and the Bear,” and “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” and “Quincy M.E.” — has died from esophageal cancer at the age of 77.
He also wrote the original “Six Million Dollar Man” pilot and TV movies.
The incredibly successful writer died Friday night at UCLA Medical Center … according to his son James.
