BH Interview: Prager Wants
Carolla's'Luck' to Rub Off on
University Students

Breitbart's Big Hollywood, by Christian Toto

Radio talk show host Dennis Prager is fighting back against the era of entitlement thinking with a man known in some circles for encouraging girls to bounce on trampolines. Prager’s decades as a radio performer made it easy for him to look past Adam Carolla’s crass high jinks on "The Man Show" and applaud the thinker beneath the gags. Now, the duo routinely plays before packed crowds, and they've teamed up for a new course at Prager University, the talk show host’s online education realm. “Adam Carolla on Luck”

Good move. Loved Carolla's deadpan response to O'Reilly's query last night about why Californians aren't more upset in the face of record-high gas prices: "We got somethin' called a 'bullet train' - and it's goin' from Bakersfield to Fresno and it's gonna be done in 2019, so our problems are over involving transportation."

Beverly Hills Dermatologist
American Spectator, by Ben Stein    Original Article

Monday For many years now, I have endured a mild skin disorder, rarely fatal. I usually am monitored by a fine doctor in Rancho Mirage. But I wanted a dermatologist near our home in Beverly Hills, so I asked around and got a reference for a Dr. Wang, as I will call him. (Not his real name.) This afternoon, I entered his tiny waiting room, introduced myself to the young women behind the counter and smiled. The women asked me to fill out several forms, which I did and handed them back.

Comedian Adam Carolla speculated Wednesday that actor Alec Baldwin’s departure from MSNBC earlier this week had more to do with poor ratings than his allegedly hurling a homophobic slur at a paparazzi photographer earlier this month. Carolla argued it was more likely MSNBC used those remarks as a convenient excuse for ending a poor-performing program. “Fitzdog, you and I have done enough of this shit to know the first two weeks basically lets you know where the rest is going,” Carolla said on his Wednesday podcast. “They’ll give you the first week just that people coming in — sort of looky-loos, curious,

Adam Carolla followed the mainstream media´s advice this week and began a dialogue on race relations with his podcast partner Dr. Drew Pinsky. Carolla used the discussion as a springboard to slam the media for its subservience to President Barack Obama and penchant for flaming the flames of racial discontent. "The first thing we need to do is stop the media in its rush to turn everything into a problem of race. They don´t even know how to report sh**," Carolla says during the July 18 edition of The Adam and Dr. Drew Show.

Adam Carolla is no stranger to the P.C. police. He simply refuses to hold his hands out so they can slap the cuffs on him. Carolla offered some advice to his fellow comedians during a recent podcast on how to handle the inevitable bruised feelings from pointed punch lines. Don´t give in. Naturally, Carolla leaned on a colorful metaphor or two to hammer home his argument. "These paper tigers who try to knock you down and make you apologize ... they put pressure on you," he said. "What you need to do is not negotiate with terrorists."

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. Those lessons are starting to rub off on Carolla´s podcast partner, Dr. Drew Pinsky. The two, reunited after spending a decade on the syndicated Loveline radio show, explored how the media reacts to the president´s lavish lifestyle on their most recent installment of The Adam and Dr. Drew Show.

Adam Carolla hardly seems the professorial type. The podcast king doesn´t smoke a pipe, wear patches on the elbows of his sports jackets or extol the virtues of socialism. Still, Carolla´s life story offers plenty of lessons for his fellow Americans. After all, he went from being "Not Taco Bell Material" to a New Media trailblazer. Carolla shares some reasons why he evolved beyond a less than idyllic childhood as part of the newest course from Prager University. It´s all about internalization, learning from one´s mistakes without blaming everyone else but you.

Adam Carolla says he´s been through the “Hollywood washing machine,” and he´s glad not to deal with any more spin cycles. “I’m tired of leaving it up to the judges. You can get a lot of bad hometown calls,” the podcast king tells Big Hollywood about his new career as a podcast pioneer working under the Carolla Digital banner. “I wanna train hard and go for the knockout.”

He was traveling — but she was on a jealousy trip. A whacked-out New Jersey woman sent police rushing to Newark Airport yesterday after falsely accusing her husband of plotting to blow up a plane, authorities said. Eunice Ukaegbu, 50, called cops about her hubby, Okieze Ukaegbu, 58, because she didn’t want him to leave the country without her, authorities said. The couple had just gotten into a nasty fight. “It looks like that marriage went up in flames,” law-enforcement official quipped. The drama began when Eunice allegedly passed along the bogus tip that her husband

Adam Carolla's shift to the political right appears all but complete. Yes, the podcast king still supports gay marriage, and he embraces other left-of-center social stances. On the big issues of the day, from the upcoming election to our collective increase in government dependence, Carolla might as well have his own show on Fox News. Oh, wait. Carolla was recently christened as the channel's newest contributor. Carolla's latest rant targeted President Barack Obama's moth-eaten 2008 campaign slogan.

Adam Carolla calls California home, but he's hardly a typical resident by local standards. He's more likely to critique the Golden State (or its denizens) than send much love its way. So when Bill O'Reilly asked the podcast king why his fellow Californians, particularly well-to-do Hollywood types, aren't up in arms over skyrocketing gas prices Carolla had an easy answer up his sleeve. "My friends don't know how much gas is, they don't care, and they like it that way," Carolla told O'Reilly.

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off. The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

During House Minority Nancy Pelosi´s address at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention on Saturday in Los Angeles, she told a story about an unnamed House Republican telling her the GOP does not care about hungry children in America. Pelosi claimed the unnamed "friend" called the poor and hungry "invisible". Pelosi used that same exact same rhetoric in early February at her weekly press briefing only then instead of friend it was the rock band U2 that gave her the "invisible" line...

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

The Marriage of Obama´s Parents:
´In Name Only´?

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

Bill de Blasio suffering

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal

In the video message, Obama invites a new generation to embrace the spirit of discovery and inspires viewers to explore new frontiers and imagine limitless possibilities for the future.
