Disney’s Rebel Princess

Posted in Humor, Movies, Music, Society on August 19th, 2014

Certainly, you don’t have to enjoy Disney’s Frozen. You do, however, have to face the fact that Elsa is Disney’s rebel princess…and in more ways than just her sexuality.

Elsa of Arendelle – Disney’s Rebel Princess

Whether is saying, “Fuck It All” to her final exams or “Let ‘Em Burn” about people who’ve hurt her or held her down, Elsa is most definitely a rebel through and through.

Think about this. Stars Wars hit the theaters 37 years ago in 1977, just two years after the the fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War.

This Is Obama’s America

Posted in Books & Reading, Movies, Politics on January 24th, 2014

This is Obama’s America – An “America” with a would-be tyrant who loathes both the Constitution and any who dare to speak against hi as its President; an “America” where Separation of Powers more often than not means separating we, the People from power.

2016: Obama’s America

The 2012 documentary 2016: Obama’s America was produced by Gerald R. Molen. D’Souza and John Sullivan co-directed and co-wrote the film, which is based on D’Souza’s book The Roots of Obama’s Rage. It seems that, despite its only moderate box office success, it pissed off Obama’s people – pissed them off enough that they had the FBI charge him with making illegal contributions to a U.S. Senate campaign.

Federal authorities accuse D’Souza of donating more than is legal to the campaign of Wendy Long, who ran in 2012 for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton but lost to now-Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Long, though, is not mentioned in an indictment obtained by THR on Thursday.

Insiders say D’Souza has been friends with Long since they attended Dartmouth College together in the early 1980s. According to the indictment, D’Souza donated $20,000 to Long’s campaign by aggregating the money from various people and falsely reporting the source of the funds. But Gerald Molen, a co-producer of 2016, says the charge is politically motivated.

While neither Mr. D’Souza nor his attorney seem to be arguing the particulars of the charges, it seems very suspicious and frightening that the FBI would target someone donating $20,000 in bundled funds in an election where the winner, Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), had a warchest of well over $36,000,000.

In a chilling and dishearteningly similar fashion to Obama’s IRS specially targeting Conservative non-profits, this very much seems to be a case of oppression through selective and targeted enforcement of the law.

When it came to the Obama Regime targeting Americans because of their dissent against Obama and his policies, I asked when the Inquisition would begin. Now we know.
