A New McCarthyism
in Hollywood?

Hollywood Reporter, by Stephen Galloway

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/20/2017 6:53:56 PM

It’s been 70 years since President Truman ordered his loyalty tests. Now Hollywood has a loyalty test of its own. Seventy years ago this week — on March 21, 1947, to be exact — President Truman issued an executive order that caught some of his most die-hard supporters by surprise. The order, writes Robert Justin Goldstein in Prologue magazine, “required that all federal civil service employees be screened for ‘loyalty.’ [It] specified that one criterion…would be a finding of ‘membership in, affiliation with or sympathetic association’ with any organization determined by the attorney general to be ‘totalitarian, Fascist, Communist or subversive’

I believe there is more justification for a loyalty test today than there ever was back then.

Two things Stephen:

There were communists--or more accurately Stalinists, actively involved in espionage and subversion under Moscow´s direction. That´s right, members of the communist party followed orders from Stalin´s henchmen.

Secondly, if a Democrat like Truman felt the it necessary to do this, it must have been pretty bad.

“required that all federal civil service employees be screened for ‘loyalty.’

So when did Hollywood become civil service?

Idiotic.

McCarthy had nothing to do with Hollywood. His only task was to investigate government employees. Hollywood was investigated by the democrat-created House Un-American Activities Committee - - and McCarthy was in the Senate!

Besides which - - McCarthy was 100% right - - and these doofuses are 100% wrong.

I´m not sure that everyone finished reading the article before commenting -- and if not, I wouldn´t blame you since he takes forever to take to the point. But the New McCarthyism he is referring to is on the part of libs against Hollywood conservatives.

All eyes on Trump, Ryan relationship
after health care defeat
CNN, by Lauren Fox    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 3/27/2017 2:13:40 AM     Post Reply
Not long after President Donald Trump told his Twitter followers to watch Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro´s show Saturday night, the host and Trump ally took to the screen to deliver a harsh rebuke of House Speaker Paul Ryan. "Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the House," Pirro said. "The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill. The one trumpeted to repeal and replace Obamacare. The one that he had seven years to work on. The one he hid under lock and key in the basement of Congress. The one that had

How a secret Freedom Caucus pact

Speaker Paul Ryan and House leaders had been toiling behind closed doors for weeks assembling their Obamacare repeal bill as suspicion on the far-right simmered to a boil. So on March 7, just hours after Ryan unveiled a plan that confirmed its worst fears, the House Freedom Caucus rushed to devise a counterstrategy. The few dozen true believers knew that pressure from House leaders and President Donald Trump to fall in line would be immense and they were intent on not getting boxed in. In a conference room in the Rayburn House Office Building, the group met that evening and made a

The Wall Street Journal is delighted to hear Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s tough words on North Korea and China. “Let me be very clear: The policy of strategic patience has ended,” Mr. Tillerson said, referring to the Obama Administration policy of waiting for North Korea to give up its nuclear ambitions or collapse. A day earlier he criticized “20 years” of a “failed approach” to the North’s nuclear ambitions. I, too, appreciate the secretary of state’s candor. But straight talk isn’t going to be enough. As the Journal concedes, He and President Trump are trying to persuade China that the new

Report: Ryan pleaded on one knee
for ObamaCare repeal vote

The Washington Post detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure. At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress -- to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.) The moments highlighted by the Post during the Republican conference negotiations show what a tough battle Ryan and his deputies faced in whipping the vote. But they also show the fierce support

President Trump is reportedly creating a new White House innovation office that will be led by his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. The White House Office of American Innovation will be announced Monday, the Washington Post reported, and will report directly to the president. The idea is to help meet some of the goals President Trump pledged to accomplish during his campaign, such as working to help with veteran care and fight opioid addiction. The new office, which is described in the Post report as a “SWAT team” to fix the federal bureaucracy, is working with tech giants such

The latest from 6-year-olds: Dinosaurs are awesome, the blue crayon is best and also the Indians are trying to lock up shortstop Francisco Lindor for seven more seasons. Brody Chernoff, the son of Indians GM Mike, joined the Cleveland radio broadcast on Saturday in a cute way to liven up the monotony of spring training. After a few shy minutes, Brody seemed to open up, telling broadcaster Tom Hamilton (and the world listening) that Dad “had to stay up til 2 in the morning with phone calls” to make the offseason splash of Edwin Encarnacion.

The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa. Bidding for the former president and first lady Michelle Obama´s book rights surpassed $60 million.

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members. He later

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,
