Secret In Their Eyes  =   6 


Mixed feelings about this movie.  Nicole Kidman is stunning as the stern D.A.  Julia Roberts is a remarkable actress playing the role of an investigator who loses her own teen daughter to a brutal, whodunit murder. Then, there is Chiwetel Ejiofor, a former prosecutorial investigator who is obsessed with solving the murder of Roberts’ daughter for 13 long years, when he comes out of nowhere to announce he had solved the murder because he found a picture of a guy who looked exactly like the suspect. 

I don’t remember ever arresting, chasing or getting into fights with possible suspects based on similar facial features…and no other hard evidence.

 Ejiofor is an outstanding actor, best known for his Oscar nominated role as the slave in “12 Years a Slave.”

 The movie often drifts in and out in scenes of present and past, a 13 year span, in which it’s sometimes difficult to understand when the scene is taking place. That could easily have been overcome had the director made the actors look younger and/or older, depending on the period the scene is in.

 The plot was excellently conceived, and the actors were good. But I

Why is everyone so shocked?

The radical Islamists of the world have always kept their word, although we bury our heads in the sand to portray how tolerant and politically correct we all are. Meanwhile, we ignore the ongoing threats and Jihadi plans for conquest authored by radical Islamist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood, which has unambiguously promised to destroy the non-Muslim western world from within.

It’s not a secret. That fact was disclosed during the Holy Land Foundation trial of 2007, in which five prominent Islamists wearing suits and ties were sentenced to prison for funneling charity money into terror organizations. The feds presented a document into evidence that was found hidden in the Virginia home of a Muslim Brotherhood hierarchy, addressed to the Ikhwan (Brothers) throughout the world. It clearly spelled out the goals and responsibilities of radical Islam in the western hemisphere, to destroy from within and using deceit as a major tool for infiltration.

Notice the phrase: From within. As we are witnessing today, Europe

In view of the impending surge of Syrian refugees into the U.S.; 10,000 this year, 85,000 next year and according to John Kerry, another 100,000 in 2017, it would be wise for people to check the most reliable statistics concerning the numbers of these people who are likely to be insurgents, terrorists and/or stealth allies of ISIS. In other words, along with the suffering people, how many can we expect to ride piggyback into our nation as activists and/or supporters of our sworn enemy.

     It’s hard to conceive how stupid our leaders can actually be.

     According to a 2014 report by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies based in Qatar, as reported in Independent Journal, 13 % of Syrian refugees have a positive view of ISIS. 

      Think about the math for a moment.  We are prepared to accept and host nearly 200,000 refugees into the U.S. of which 26,000 admit to being favorable of the worst possible enemy we are facing since the Nazi regime. 

     Here’s the article. Here are the charts citing people of other Arab nations.  Note that 24 % of Palestinians have a favorable view of ISIS.

On August 2, 1990, the 300,000-man army of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq invaded the tiny emirate of Kuwait and started bombing Kuwait City.  Kuwait was one of our Middle-East allies. I recall then-president, George H.W. Bush appearing outraged before a television camera stating: “This will not stand.”

     Four words: “This will not stand!” 

     This was no hemming and hawing. This was no placating anyone.  This was not a lecture on seeing good Muslims from bad Muslims, or that more meetings need to be held between allies. This was a flat-out declaration from an American president that the s—t would hit the fan, and Saddam Hussein’s act of war would be crushed.

     He kept the promise. Bush went to the UN and to the U.S. Senate, assembled a coalition of many nations, including New Zealand and Australia, Japan and Saudi Arabia, and on January 17th, 1991, the forces deployed nearly 750,000 military personnel, including over a half million  Americans, and began pounding the Iraqi armies. In a period of 42 days – not months, but 42 days – over 116,000 sorties were flown, the Iraqi army retreated back into their holes and the war was over. The U.S. suffered

Good picture, not a great movie. 

This is produced as a true story which chronicles the lives of women fighting for the right to vote in London, England, circa 1912 -1918.  The picture featured the lure of Meryl Streep as one of its major stars.  

If you’re a fan of Streep and want to see the movie because of her, don’t waste your money. Streep portrays the leader of the political movement and does a credible job, as always. However, she only appears in a single scene where she gives a brief speech, a la Evita, that lasts between two and three minutes. Other than that, Streep fans are ripped off. She’s nowhere to be found.

Nevertheless, the primary acting role by Carey Mulligan is a stellar performance, who brings the audience into the heart of the issue, suffering, losing her marriage and her child, to follow an ideal that ends up successful. The story, which is based on true events about obstacles and oppression, is predictable so there are no real surprises.

While the acting and story line is compelling, the constant use of camera close-ups by Director, Sarah Gavron, was no asset to the

This is a reprint from WorldNetDaily.com. World Net Daily is a respected conservative on-line publication which — as you see — goes into great detail and validation when publicizing their stories.  This piece, rather long, was assembled and published in May of this year, citing attribution and sources.  It’s well worth the read for people, left or right, who are interested in truth and integrity in our political system.

     As for me, I am saddened that the Democratic Party has put all their eggs in one basket. It would be a terrible stain on America should someone so inept, so suspiciously corrupt, or so provably dishonest could be elected by American voters to be our president. Certainly the Democrats can do better than this.

     Bear in mind, these things are what we know about. Imagine what we don’t know.

‘Blue lives’ matter, too, yet anarchy grows

Published Op-Ed in Florida Today

Marshall Frank community columnist12:06 a.m. EST November 3, 2015

On the night of Oct. 20, shots were heard in the area of East Harlem. Cops responded. A suspect was confronted by officers. He had a gun. He fired, they fired. Randolph Holder, 33, died from a bullet in the head.

The shooting resulted in the death of a black man. Only, this black man was a five-year veteran of NYPD. Indeed, a black life who mattered.

Four cops have been murdered in just one police department – NYPD – in the last 11 months. Two were virtually ambushed. Thirteen others have been ambushed around the nation.

Four days after Randolph Holder was killed, “Black Lives Matter” anarchists took to the streets to protest all police officers. Ten months ago, a mob in New York chanted in streets, “What do we want? Dead Cops!” Those same hated cops made sure the streets were secured and marchers were protected. In April of 2015, Baltimore anarchists burned the city and destroyed property posing as “protesters.”

Where is this country going?

Cops – our protectors – were ordered to
