Declaration Entertainment Back in the summer of 2010, Declaration Entertainment asked for your support to help make the movies you want to see. Now needless to say, feature films are expensive propositions, and despite the fact that we had next to nothing on the shelves when we opened the doors, you took a chance on us and parted with your hard-earned money to support that critical cause: namely, reclaiming the mythology of the country; recasting us and our principles as heroes rather than villains; and dealing with the issues that the liberals in Hollywood will not only not touch, but actively squash at every opportunity. As we gathered funds for the first year and a half, we stayed in the fight as economically as possible: by producing the FIREWALL segments. There are thirty-two of them, at present, including EAT THE RICH, WHY WE SUCK, and the remarkable WHAT WE BELIEVE series.

Project Gunrunner update: ATF ignored warnings, DOJ ignores document requests Tick, tick, tick. Another Project Gunrunner disclosure deadline approaches for the Obama Department of Justice. And GOP watchdogs are hammering away at yet another stonewall erected by corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder. Late last week, Sen. Charles Grassley roasted the DOJ for failing to produce documents he requested in February — and released his own set of damning e-mails between a gun shop owner who had protested the ATF’s dangerous straw purchase scheme repeatedly. The ‘Italian Job’ and Other Highlights From U.S.’s Rendition Program With Egypt Abu Zaabal prison, 25 kms north of Cairo, after a mass breakout during the nationwide protest. (AFP/Getty Images file photo) Among the many aspects of the U.S.-Egypt relationship, few have been as controversial as the CIA’s extraordinary rendition program, where the agency frequently handed over suspected terrorists to foreign governments with histories of torture and illegal detention. According to Human Rights Watch, Egypt welcomed more CIA detainees than any other country from the 1990s through 2005. And while renditions happen only with the assurance that a foreign partner will not torture the prisoner, as one CIA officer once told Congress, the assurances “weren’t worth a bucket of warm spit.”

Charles Murray’s book ‘Coming Apart’ explains how we split into two separate American cultures after 1960, and how we can join together again. What if a right-wing intellectual looked at Occupy Wall Street and agreed with much of its two-Americas worldview? Like OWS, American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray’s book, “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010,” considers what the country feels like compared to pre-’80s America and asks: What happened? In 1960, Murray argues, rich and poor lived more or less the same lives, in the same communities, nestled within the same principles and institutions. We watched the same TV shows, drank the same beer, attended the same churches and schools. At vacation time, we all headed for the nearest patch of beach in our Detroit-made cars. If you were doing well, maybe instead of a Chevy you had a Buick.
