Hollywood biggies caught on tape
agreeing to hide Middle East funding
for anti-fracking film

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has struck gold with his latest sting operation (video below)(snip)an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posed as a member of a Middle Eastern oil dynasty and offered $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie. In video from a meeting with Ed Begley, Jr., Mariel Hemingway, and Josh Tickell, a Project Veritas investigator disguised as "Muhammed" offered $9 million for an anti-fracking film. "Muhammad" clearly states: "If Washington, D.C. continues fracking, America will be energy efficient, and then they won´t need my oil anymore." In the same conversation, Begley and Hemingway accept the

Fascist Propaganda: It´s what´s for dinner.
This week´s Poop de Jour is called Anti-Fracking.
Next week it will be Global Warming. The week following that will be Climate change and so on and so forth.
This is no doubt how it all works, we just don´t have video on all of them ... yet.

These "biggies" probably still don´t grasp the hypocrisy of taking money from Middle Eastern oil interests. They´ve shown that their opposition to fracking is not thoughtful or honorable. It´s all about the heady feeling of self-righteousness and putting down the "little people" who need jobs and affordable energy.

I have had quite enough of Megyn Kelly on Fox. I never liked her since I saw her get unprofessionally huffy whenever anyone brought up the differences at work between men and women.

The fact is, her and that other grinning fool that she seems to like to have on lately were defending Begley and Hemingway as "not really involved" when the video speaks volumes. They both had the audacity to say it was more about O´Keefe´s marketing for this movie.

I never liked her, I am done watching her. The Left was right, she is an idiot.

Great video.
The Sundance producer Director has no " moral issue" about the source of the money - and the meeting was at the Sultan of Brunei´s Beverly Hills Hotel the sister Hotel of Bel Air Hotel.
Middle Eastern money has infested Hollywood and o´Keefe exposes the hypocrisy.
In the end Lefty Hemenway says she could be Mohammed´s "secret American wife."
Also note they work closely with NGO/ 501c3 and are focused on coordinating films to lead up to 2016 election!!!
Influencing elections using 501c3 - no wonder corrupt Lerner contacted DOJ to go after Tea Party Conservatives - the Left was already abusing their status.

Fifteen Things You Probably Do

Have you ever worked for someone who you seriously thought might be crazy? About half of all workers have such an experience within a lifetime. The other half misses out on one of life´s most perplexing and educational opportunities. The subject is psychopathy. Knowledge and understanding of psychopathy is now advancing, and at an accelerating rate, after a decades-long period of no growth and slow growth. Good thing! Psychopathy is the very worst mental disorder; psychopathy and related conditions have cost millions of lives lost and trillions of dollars wasted, though it is still very poorly understood by most people.

Take a deep breath everyone; Mitch McConnell, Thad Cochran and most of their Establishment buddies are bringing home the electoral bacon. The terrifying run of conservative candidates unseating the old-timers may finally be over. McConnell and Cochran each beat their conservative challengers, thus our heads can rest a little lighter on our pillows knowing that entrenched incumbency once again dominates the American electoral system. And rest assured that the repercussions of the Establishment’s win extend far beyond Kentucky and Mississippi. First and foremost, we won’t have to worry about another government shutdown.

The Democratic Party and mainstream media both bet big on Barack Obama in 2008, and doubled down in 2012. Both institutions wagered that his policies and his purported skills and abilities would benefit America. Now, with scandal and disaster breaking on nearly every front, those bets are coming back to haunt them. (snip)Democrats will have nowhere to run. If they flee the president, they’ll look weak, defensive — and guilty. If they back his failed policies, they’ll look even worse

A Heartbreaking Unspoken
Consequence of Obama

Posted By: magnante- 6/26/2014 6:46:04 AM     Post Reply
Decades of socialist/progressive indoctrination in our schools, media, and culture, plus six years of Obama, have yielded a devastating unspoken consequence. It is the loss of who we use to be as Americans. In his 1961 Inaugural Address, President John F. Kennedy said, “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Democrats have perverted Kennedy´s inspiring challenge. Their dispiriting goal is to have as many Americans as possible controlled by and dependent on government, even for life itself, which is at the root of ObamaCare.

Barack Obama and many Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of being incapable of compromise. Journalists follow their orders and spread the message. Nothing can be farther from the truth. In fact, Tea Party members often object that Republicans compromise on too many issues. A big tent leads to such disputation; it is called liberty. Valid arguments can be made to support a variety of positions. But it is a myth propagated by liberals that refusal to compromise is built into the DNA of conservatives. Call it projection or call it propaganda, but liberals -- led by the president -- have been the

Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley made the news recently when he compared those of us who think our immigration laws ought to be honored with the anti-Catholic “Know-Nothings” of the nineteenth century. In the process, he aligned himself with the forces on the left that are out to destroy the Catholic Church. As a practicing Catholic myself, I will go easy on O’Malley and write off his historical gaps and odd alliances to naiveté. The good Cardinal simply may not know what fate awaits those who think they can dance with the devil and walk away unscathed. A few years back I

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

A shocking new report from the Center for Immigration Studies claims to prove that every single new job created in America for the last fourteen years has gone to immigrants, legal and illegal. This would fly in the face of those who claim that immigration is an economic boon to native born Americans: The CIS report found that over the last 14 years, people who were born in the United States held 114.8 million jobs in 2000, and held 114.7 million jobs in 2014, a drop of 127,000.

Comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney have been greatly exaggerated, Hillary Clinton says.

What was humorous in that remarks is known only to Clinton. “I shouldn’t have said the, I think, five or so words that I said,” the former secretary of state said. “My inartful use of those five words doesn’t change who I am.” Later in the interview, Ifill asked if Clinton had become the Democratic adaptation of

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he
