Movie Review: Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

A small movie on dysfunctional families running for Oscar ___ 8/10

Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris
Written by Michael Arndt

Abigail Breslin … Olive
Greg Kinnear … Richard
Paul Dano … Dwayne
Alan Arkin … Grandpa
Toni Collette … Sheryl
Steve Carell … Frank

The Academy Award nominees for best picture of 2006 are as follows:

The Departed
Letters from Iwo Jima
Little Miss Sunshine
The Queen

And though I’ve seen and reviewed Eastwood’s companion film to Iwo Jima, Flags of Our Fathers, the only movie I’ve seen on this list so far is LMS.  My personal feeling is it’s a good movie—perhaps providing unique insights into how to resolve a dysfunctional family—but not big enough to win the Oscar.

The setup: we learn very quickly the nuclear family portion of the ensemble consists of a motivational speaker Pop (Greg Kinnear), his long-suffering wife Sheryl (Toni Collette), a seemingly psycho son Dwayne who reads Nietzsche and doesn’t speak, and Olive (Abigail Breslin), the daughter innocently addicted to child beauty pageants.  Continue reading

Guest Column: Replacing False Icons

Sharing two sacred cows that we need to realize aren’t so sacred after all
Emma Fiala [original here] and Gilad Atzmon [original here]

It’s becoming more and more clear to me lately that we, the species I call my own, are on the threshold of letting go of our sacred cows… thanks to simple willingness of independent consciousnesses to face the truth… and strike out for justice. Here are my seven mainstay assaults of the global toxocracy that we are coming to grips with:

  1. Tax Lies—thoroughly exposed and remedied at the practical personal level by The Hendrickson Discovery
  2. False-Flags—the 9/11 attacks/coverup and other major false-flag acts of state terror, many with deep-state, globalist architects
  3. Toxic Skies—covert atmospheric aerosol spraying and electromagnetic bombardment of the ionosphere (HAARP)
  4. Frankenfoods—massive distribution of harmful genetically modified organism (GMO) crops to world populations
  5. Fry & Spy—radio-frequency (RF) and dirty electricity now principally thru electric ‘smart’ meters: surveillance, health/safety violation
  6. Sliming Baby—medical fascism, particularly via mandated vaccines that whack immune systems and escalate the autism epidemic
  7. ‘Botting’ Junior—compulsory state factory schooling, longtime affliction of the body politic, acculturating kids to prison planet

Ref. my political philosophy of Trumanism.

But even individuals such as myself who are relatively aware of the ongoing ravages of the New World Order collective have pockets of ignorance about what really happened in our often hallowed history. One such pocket is my persistent belief that the original Thanks-giving was, as Ayn Rand once put it, “a celebration of productive work by the noble forefathers of our society.” Well, let me begin with a few paragraphs from the first part of this guest column:

How to be Less Ignorant this Thanksgiving, by Emma Fiala

A day seen by many Americans as a day of celebration, a day for family, and a day for giving thanks, is perceived by many Native Americans as a day filled with ignorance, a day filled with anger and a day full of mourning.

While millions of Americans prepare this week to get into the holiday spirit, beginning with Thanksgiving, how many are prepared to view the day through an accurate lens? While to many Americans the holiday serves as a reminder to give thanks, it is seen as a day of mourning by countless others. The truth is: European migrants brutally murdered Native Americans, stole their lands, and continue to do so today. Continue reading

Brian’s Column: First Principles’ Initiative, Starter Kit

An outline of key processes and documents of the recently conceived project
By Brian R. Wright

‘Twas the day after Thanksgiving 2017, which I spent quietly in my condo contemplating family and future while writing Christmas cards and listening to holiday music. I awoke to a dream that went as follows:

“I’m a young civil engineer being courted by a respectable firm centered in Oklahoma which is a master of water drainage. In my dream, among a surround-ing group of my would-be coworkers, I hold forth for the First Principles’ Initiative (FPI) forcefully. I’m surrounded and I explain it to this monster-big-and-tall man with a beard, who seems to be at a loss. But many are convinced. I see a controlled demolition first hand and I’m maybe 50 yards away from it on the top floor of a parking garage. I’m learning, asking questions, at the same time taking charge. People are hungry for change and a vision, and I provide it to them.”

Later on the Friday, as I was penning out my well wishes and reports of my own plans on my Christmas cards, after the brief greeting I started to write rather dramatically. “I’m going to launch my First Principles’ Initiative in January.” It was only that morning that I had come up with the word ‘initiative’ to describe the project. Then I included along with my Christmas card a copy of my “Restoring America’s First Principles” brochure.

It dawned on me that I had just made a huge commitment to what my primary purpose is going to be, potentially, for the next several years. And I felt hugely invigorated—just as I had from my three dreams of the near past—now for having found what I’ll be imagining and creating 24/7/365 as the life form Brian R. Wright. Nothing can stop us now. Continue reading

Special Column: Whither Lady Liberty…

If thou knoweth or careth not, then the Tyranny Bell certainly tolleth for thee
By Brian R. Wright

Only today’s corrupted main media will make no sound of our modern liberty’s leading lady, Doreen Hendrickson’s forced whereabouts. [Image right from “Liberty Leading the People,” Eugene Delacroix, 1830.]

Yesterday was the celebration of Thanks-giving. Americans of all stripes and sizes sat before dinner tables enjoying family, and in front of televisions taking in untold ads for junk food and expensive toys, while rooting for the so-called home team. During the red-white-and-blue, 21-jet-salute half-time cere-monies, did you see a single candle held aloft for any of the millions of victims of the American criminal injustice system… much more a float memorializing that system’s all time most-cruel, most-unconstitutional, and most-heinous violations?

On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, barring a ‘reprieve from the governor’—that is, a successful motion to postpone her surrender until January 28, 2018 (in order for her to be present for a ruling on a pending motion to vacate the remaining sentence)—Mrs. Hendrickson will self-surrender at the Alderson, West Virginia, federal prison (for NOT lying) to spend the four final months of her 20-month sentence for criminal contempt of court. We must support our Lady Liberty, and the righteous cause she leads, now more than ever.

Good news! Motion to postpone surrender granted. She’s ‘free’ thru 1/28/18 at least.[1]

Still the remainder of this column applies…

You see, Doreen Hendrickson IS America’s Lady Liberty du jour. Not only did she refuse to take the back seat of a bus, she stood up to the Imperial Potentates who claimed to own her and the rest of us, and refused to officially lie to them that she is, indeed, their slave. Her quiet, noble act is the spark of the Second American R/Evolution. And the emperors being naked, there is absolutely nothing they can do to stop us. Continue reading

Movie Review: The Lookout (2007)

Supremely crafted psychological drama____ 9/10
Written and directed by Scott Frank
Reviewed by Brian R. Wright

Joseph Gordon-Levitt … Chris Pratt
Jeff Daniels … Lewis
Matthew Goode … Gary Spargo
Isla Fisher … Luvlee
Carla Gugino … Janet
Bruce McGill … Robert Pratt

What a first-class effort: completely engaging from start to finish. I had read on IMDb one reviewer’s comments that’s it’s just nice to watch a movie that’s extremely well made, you know, as it all works together seamlessly to convey a meaningful story.

The actors are in top form as well, especially the young lead Joseph Gordon-Levitt who you’ll probably recognize as some child actor that you just know you’ve seen a million times.  He came of age recently in an interesting film noir effort Brick (2005), a story about a bizarre killing in a dysfunctional high-school environment.

Levitt plays a boy named Chris Pratt, who becomes a star high school athlete in a fictional Kansas farming town south of Kansas City. He’s fooling around one night on a double date in his convertible Mustang GT, which leads to a major accident. The couple in the back are killed, while he and his girlfriend suffer disabling injuries.

He winds up as janitor at the town bank and receives some public assistance both for his psychological damage—he has a hard time with things like remembering sequences of events and quantities; he’s bottled up his feelings—and for his physical restrictions, mainly pain and mobility related.  He has troubles with normal development of relationships with girls, illustrated by his hitting on his therapist Janet (Carla Gugino).

Guest Column: Boycott Big Brother?!

Nine ways to stop cooperating with the ruling elite’s control system
By Paul Philips [Original piece here]

Editor’s Note: I found this courtesy Twitter, and it strikes a chord. Fitting in very smoothly with my First Principles and First Principles’ grand jury initiative.

Done sneakily, or under the illusion of democracy, in recent times more oppressive laws have been made than ever before. Between us being subjected to more and more ordinances, rules, restrictions and outright laws then demonizing our dissension and opinion  should we object… It’s as if we can’t do anything right.

How long will it take for the masses to wake up to these grossly restricting laws and realize how un-free they are?  The masses’ unchallenging complacency with these laws has been made that much easier through social conditioning engineered over the years by the ruling elite.

In this charade, the power-mad egomaniac manipulating controlling parasitical ruling elite impose themselves on almost everything for their ulterior motives: ownership, power, profit and political gain – and that’s it. It’s that straightforward. It’s that pathetic.

These forever-increasing control mechanisms: regulations, rules, absurd mandates, threats of fines, intimidation, extreme petty police reprisals and imprisonment … are designed to sap the life-force from us while denying our true self-expression as we’re expected to bow down in acquiescence. It’s all designed to erode humanity into a subservient entity.

How do we break this manipulation? Continue reading

Brian’s Column: 9/11 Truth EZ

Logical consequences of facts undisputed by both sides of the Official Story
By Brian R. Wright

On my recent high school reunion I was pleased to get reacquainted with a boyhood friend who is now a retired United Airlines pilot and all around good guy. In a post-reunion email I ventured to him a simple question prompted by a pilot-posted Webpage that argued the impossibility that any of the alleged 9/11 hijackers could even fly any of the Boeing aircraft simulators: “Warren, I’m also wondering how the reported sea level airspeeds could have exceeded their respective aircraft’s VMO (maximum operating velocity) by huge margins.” He didn’t reply to the VMO question, but wrote that he had read a detailed and excellent argument somewhere explaining how the alleged hijackers could have accomplished what appear to be unbelievable—to the general public as well as to more than a few pilots—piloting tasks.

EZ Truths #1: The official story is physically/logically impossible

Many of you know that I’ve written about the 9/11/2001 attacks since roughly 2005, when I began to question the Official Story (OS)… thanks to a videotape, of all things, entitled Where’s the Plane? I just did a cursory look of the search engines and Amazon, and it appears that that tape and subsequent DVD have been scrubbed by the OSIC (Official Story Industrial Complex). No matter, volumes of hard evidence have been produced by reputable scholarly and citizen researchers since the fateful day that scuttle the 9/11 OS for all but the most reasoning-incapable or evasion-determined. I pointed my friend to the Pilots for 9/11 Truth site… and—staying with the aircraft evidence—here’s a table I drew from the groundbreaking video The New Pearl Harbor, by Massimo Mazzucco:
