“The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.” – Unknown

Today would have been Breitbart’s 44th birthday. RIP, happy warrior. On September 29, 2011, the late Andrew Breitbart addressed members of the Nixon Foundation and answered some Q and A, while promoting his Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World. It’s one of my favorite speeches about conservatism.
Susan Hayward (June 30, 1917 – March 14, 1975) was an American actress. By the late 1940s, the quality of her film roles had improved, and she achieved recognition for her dramatic abilities with the first of five Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her performance as an alcoholic in Smash-Up, the Story of a Woman (1947). Her career continued successfully through the 1950s and she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of death row inmate Barbara Graham in I Want to Live! (1958).
Terence Stephen “Steve” McQueen (March 24, 1930 – November 7, 1980) was an American actor. He was nicknamed “The King of Cool.” His “anti-hero” persona, which he developed at the height of the Vietnam counterculture, made him one of the top box-office draws of the 1960s and 1970s.
The trend is on the rise, Jay Chang said, adding that there are more than 40 maternity operations that host 1,000 women in the Los Angeles area alone.
Traveling to the United States to plop out a US-citizen baby is not illegal. It is perfectly lawful to engage in birth tourism, which is promoted by the fundamental misunderstanding of the intent of the 14th Amendment, that any baby plunking on US soil results in an American, which is not what was legislated at all.
The only way now for citizens to fight against birth tourism businesses, which are often located in quiet suburbs, is to go after them for code violations, as happened in Chino Hills where anger has grown over the last few months. The large subdivided mansion generated a lot of traffic and at least one sewage spill.
The good news in this instance is that citizen complaints worked:
‘Maternity hotel’ in California shuts down, UPI, January 4, 2013
CHINO HILLS, Calif., Jan. 4 (UPI) — An alleged “maternity hotel” in a California mansion was shut down after officials obtained a temporary restraining order against its owners, authorities said.
The building in Chino Hills, about 40 miles from Los Angeles, allegedly housed women from China who traveled to the United States to give birth to babies with U.S. citizenship, the Los Angeles Times reported.
City officials described the so-called hotel as a seven-bedroom house divided into 17 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms and said the owners did not obtain permits to remodel the property and were not allowed to operate a business in a residential zone.
Neighbors complained of cars speeding in and out of the driveway and a raw sewage spill from the house’s overloaded septic system.
” If you were to isolate that type of movie over the last ten years, you would see that what Hollywood is elevating is nothing short of nihilism. Whether that be American Beauty, or even a Syriana, what you see are movies that pretty much…”
I hope more, previously little or unknown tapes of Andrew Breitbart emerge from the ether.
By the way, I just finished Andrew’s book, Righteous Indignation. It is really good. If you’re looking for something rowdy and fun, thought-provoking and inspiring, pick it up. The guy was one of a kind.
PJ Media’s Ed Driscoll – [...] There are several observations that Andrew makes here that have withstood the test of time. Early on, there’s a grimly hilarious remark by Andrew concerning his ailing grandmother, who emitted a piercing primal scream of terror, whenever anyone attempted to change the TV channel from her beloved CBS, the only channel she apparently ever watched, in sharp contrast to today’s world of hundreds of cable and satellite channels and millions of Websites and blogs.
“Those who committed this crime are as guilty as are those who approved of it for decades. We are all guilty. It is impossible to lie to ourselves by justifying senseless cruelty on political grounds. The shooting of the Romanov family is a result of an uncompromising split in Russia society into ‘us’ and “them.’ The results of this split can be seen even now.” Boris Yeltsin
Burial ceremony of Romanov remains. Boris Yeltsin speech:
Dear fellow citizens: It’s a historic day for Russia.
Eighty years have passed since the slaying of the last Russian emperor and his family. We have long been silent about this monstrous crime We must say the truth: The Yekaterinburg massacre has become one of the most shameful episodes in our history. By burying the remains of innocent victims, we want to atone for the sins of our ancestors.
Those who committed this crime are as guilty as are those who approved of it for decades. We are all guilty. It is impossible to lie to ourselves by justifying senseless cruelty on political grounds. The shooting of the Romanov family is a result of an uncompromising split in Russia society into “us” and “them.” The results of this split can be seen even now.
The burial of the remains of Yekaterinburg is, first of all, an act of human justice. It’s a symbol of unity of the nation, an atonement of common guilt. We all bear responsibility for the historical memory of the nation. And that’s why I could not fail to come here. I must be here as both an individual and the president. I bow my head before the victims of the merciless slaying. While building a new Russia, we must rely on its historical experience.
Many glorious pages of Russian history were connected with the Romanovs. But with this name is connected one of the most bitter lessons: Any attempts to change life by violence is condemned to failure. We must end the century, which has been an age of blood and violence in Russia, with repentance and peace, regardless of political views, ethnic or religious belonging. This is our historic chance. On the eve of the third millennium, we must do it for the sake of our generation and those to come. Let’s remember those innocent victims who have fallen to hatred and violence. May they rest in peace.
It makes money the old-fashioned way, through market manipulation, the scamming of investors, bribing political Washington, having its executives in top administration posts, and getting open-ended low or no interest rate bailouts when needed.
Adam Carolla knows liberal media bias exists because he’s seen it up close and personal. So when he watches the mainstream press ignore President Barack Obama’s hypocrisy he simply chalks it up to more of the same.
Find out how the negativity and self-loathing of modern Hollywood is just a small gear in the machine that brings down entire nations. What can we do about it? Well, we can walk right into the heart of Mordor and destroy the Ring of Power.
