In the movie Bananas, product tester Fielding Mellish (Woody Allen) seeks to impress his left-wing girlfriend Nancy (Louise Lasser) by joining a revolution in the South American country of San Marcos. The rebels oust military dictator Gen. Emilio Vargas (Carlos Montalban) but when Mellish returns stateside he’s put on trial as a traitor. The prosecution’s star witness is Miss America, wonderfully played by Dagne Crane. “I think Mr. Mellish is a traitor to this country,” Miss America testifies, “because his views are different from the views of president and those of his kind. Differences of opinion should be tolerated, but not when they’re too different. Then he becomes a


The final sentence in Miss America's quote (in Bananas) is classic.

FTA "Way back in 1971, Woody Allen was on to something." He sure as heck was.

That’s just the way leftist minds have always worked. The sad thing is that they think it’s exactly how things should work. While everyone was laughing at them, they were busily infiltrating the education system, etc., gaining control, and teaching future generations that they are the smartest people on earth and that we will all die unless we do as they say and let them run things. Not so funny.

Pro-Israel' Bias in Staff Meeting

The far-left website The Intercept was very excited on Friday about CNN being accused in an internal meeting of having a "pronounced pro-Israel bias." Actual pro-Israel media watchdogs like CAMERA would disagree. The headline? "In internal meeting, Christiane Amanpour Confronts CNN Brass About 'Double Standards' on Israel Coverage Amanpour expressed 'real distress' over Israel stories being changed, while other staffers described a climate that is hostile to Arab journalists." In an hourlong meeting with CNN boss Mark Thompson and other executives in the London bureau on February 13, "staffers took turns questioning a panel of executives about CNN’s protocols for covering the war in Gaza and what they describe as a hostile climate

Thus far, 2024 has not been a banner year if you want to be employed as a journalist in the mainstream media. January featured layoffs at the Los Angeles Times, Sports Illustrated, Time, National Geographic, and Business Insider. Downsizing at cable news networks, usually unheard of in an election year, continues, and even National Public Radio has cut staff. Many longtime reporters at places such as the Washington Post have taken buyouts as the newspaper struggles to restructure its business model. Jack Shafer of Politico captured the current mood well: “Journalists across the country burst into flames of panic this week, as bad news for the news business crested

One scarcely knows where to begin in documenting the errors, scandals, and misadventures of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal regime. The problem is, one scarcely knows where to end. The outrages just keep on coming. Trudeau has come in for much caustic criticism of late, as a growing number of ordinary citizens and the independent media have expressed their justified suspicion and resentment of an overbearing and increasingly despotic administration. The issues at stake are features, not bugs. The list of noxious measures, lapses, and deeds that tarnish Trudeau’s record include: the selling-out of Canada’s national identity the daunting number of scandals and ethics violations the many vacations on the public dime

Democrats are in an outright state of panic following the latest poll from the New York Times and Siena College. As RedState reported, Donald Trump leads Joe Biden by five points, with the results clocking in at 48 to 43 percent. Driving the current president's woes is his deep unpopularity, which sits at -21 percent. (X) This isn't just some random poll. This is the Times' largest and longest-running effort every cycle and the survey that its election analysts use to base their predictions. The topline number isn't the only one that's shocking either. Trump's overall lead is built on big gains with minority voters and women, two demographics

The tactics of climate activists are changing, no longer satisfied with throwing tomato soup on Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" in October and pumpkin soup on the mysterious lady portrayed in da Vinci's "Mona Lisa." In January, activists showed up at the National Archives and decided to pour red powder on the display case holding the U.S. Constitution. Archives security stood by while these nutcases ranted on and on about the evil U.S. and how EVERYONE IS GOING TO DIE!! unless we stop using our cars and don't go to work anymore IMMEDIATELY.

I understood from the Star Tribune headline over the AP story yesterday that the IDF had massacred some 100 Gazans seeking food and water. As of this morning, the AP is sticking with the story with a Rafah dateline. It leads with this observation: “Israeli troops fired on a crowd of Palestinians racing to pull food off an aid convoy in Gaza City on Thursday, witnesses said.” I’m not sure about the massacre. Deep into the story we hear from the ever reliable “Gaza Health Ministry.” The AP reports: “At least 112 people were killed, Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.

It's officially unofficial that Presidentish Joe Biden will make an unannounced visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center now that the announcement has been made by the White House. Literally every lead sentence I write at the top of a story about Biden is more absurd than the previous one — and we still have at least 10 more months of this nonsense to go. Some — such as yours truly and the not-awful members of the White House Press Corpse [sic] (and I'm looking at you, Peter Doocy) — are more concerned with the alleged president's cognitive health than we are about his physical health.

"Just when I thought I was out," former and now once again Democrat presidential candidate Marianne Williamson might have complained to the press on Wednesday, "they pull me back in!" Following the surprisingly strong finish by "Uncommitted" in Tuesday's Michigan Democrat primary, the author and activist released a video statement on Twitter/X. In it, she said, "As of today, I am unsuspending my campaign for the president of the United States...

Things ain’t looking that good. Nothing seems to be working in the so-called free world: rubbish in the streets, vandalism and violent crime, illegal immigration at record levels, no-go areas in towns and cities; is this why we pay taxes and call ourselves free? Mass shootings have become a way of life in America, illegal underage migrants are turning New York and Chicago into war zones, and Joe Biden is given a pass by an enabling and compliant media that has made the profession of journalism lower than that of the oldest profession. Even Donald Tusk is not playing fair. He’s trampling Polish democracy

People around the world are increasingly realizing that “green” energy is actually black–as in blackouts. Thus, in today’s Telegraph: “The UK is much closer to blackouts than anyone dares to admit.” "We are heading for a big electricity crunch as it is. Whoever wins the general election, the next government will be committed to decarbonising the National Grid – by 2035 in the case of the Conservatives and by 2030 in the case of Labour. That means either closing all the gas power stations or fitting them with carbon capture and storage technology – which does not yet exist on scale in Britain and whose costs are likely to be massive.

President Biden spoke at the Governors Ball Dinner in the State Dining Room at the White House on Saturday evening (video excerpt below). The White House has posted the transcript of his brief remarks here. After the introductory blather, Biden referred to the portrait of Abraham Lincoln behind him — you can see it here — as he attempted to follow his text. This is how the White House transcript of the fourth paragraph reads: "And, you know, standing here in front of this portrait of the man behind me here, he — he said — and I want to make sure I get the quote exactly right.

Oregon has reportedly voted to reverse its hard drug decriminalization because of the overdose epidemic now affecting the state. In 2020, almost 60 percent of Oregon voters approved Measure 110, which decriminalized the possession of relatively small amounts of hard drugs, including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl. The measure predictably led to Oregon becoming a den of drug addicts and drug overdoses.

Pope Francis said Sunday that military disarmament is not optional but constitutes a “moral obligation” for all nations. Following his weekly Angelus address in Saint Peter’s Square, the pontiff recalled that March 5 marks the second International Day for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Awareness. “How many resources are wasted on military expenditure, which, because of the current situation, sadly continues to increase!” he told the estimated 20,000 tourists and pilgrims gathered in the square. (snip) Francis is also the only pope to ever declare that not only the use of nuclear weapons, but also their mere possession “is immoral.”

Democratic Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis visited the center Thursday and touted it as a “significant milestone” for LGBTQ Americans, according to KFI, a local media outlet.

Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of California… Illegal aliens will get interest-free home mortgage loans under a new California bill. Democrat assemblymember Joaquin Arambula (Fresno) recently introduced Assembly Bill 1840 to extend a first-time homebuyer loan program to illegal aliens. If the bill becomes law, illegal aliens will be eligible for a new program that offers a loan worth 20% of the purchase price of the residential property. There are no monthly payments and no interest accrues on the loan. Rather, the loan is paid back when the borrower refinances or sells the property.

American families struggling with high food prices due to inflation should eat cereal for dinner in order to save money, Kellogg’s CEO Gary Pilnick, who has an estimated net worth of $15.7 million, said. It’s no secret that American families are suffering due to inflation under the Biden administration. Kellogg’s CEO Gary Pilnick, a multi-millionaire, views the issue as a great opportunity to market his company’s brand, suggesting that cash-strapped families eat “cereal for dinner.” “The cereal category has always been quite affordable, and it tends to be a great destination when consumers are under pressure,” Pilnick told CNBC

A new find of underground helium in Minnesota could turn out to be one of the largest in the world, Minneapolis’s WCCO-TV reported Thursday. The drill site, just outside Babbitt in the northeastern part of the state, took about a month from initially breaking ground to get to a depth of 2,200 feet. What it found there, Pulsar Helium CEO Thomas Abraham-James called “a dream.” “There was a lot of screaming, a lot of hugging and high fives. It’s nice to know the efforts all worked out and we pulled it off,” Abraham-James told WCCO. He said that the concentration of helium sampled was 12.4 percent — about 30 times

Via The Post Millennial (emphasis added): On Wednesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that she had filed a lawsuit against meat producer JBS Foods' American division, JBS USA Food Company. James alleged that officials were "misleading the public" about the JBS USA's environmental impact, namely via their claim that the company would "achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040" while still planning to "increase production*, and therefore increase its carbon footprint.

CNN has been desperately treading water for years now. The former king of cable news has been bleeding ratings for years, with Fox News typically topping all the networks night after night. CNN still fancies itself the "most trusted name in news," yet, even former CEO Chris Licht admitted last year that that trust — assuming at one point they actually had it — is long gone and they need to restore it. He didn't last long. The problem, of course, is that CNN claims to be fair and without bias, yet anti-conservative views have long been part of its DNA,

As the window closes on her presidential campaign, Nikki Haley is changing her tune. She’s no longer just attacking Donald Trump, she’s also attacking Republicans who support him. All of them. Losing is a kind of death that concentrates the mind, and with Super Tuesday likely to be her last stand, Haley is unleashing on the people whose votes she courted for more than a year. She didn’t persuade enough of them, so now she’s blaming them for not being the right kind of Republicans. “I get why Republicans are leaving the Republican Party, because we were just always about small government and freedom: economic freedom, personal freedom,” Haley told a gaggle of reporters Friday.
