Shocker, not: Cop basher Quentin Tarantino is a liar

On October 26th, I told you how Quentin Tarantino participated in an anti-cop rally – a cry against “police terror” which devolved into a raucous, law-enforcement gripe-fest. This event took place just four days after the on-duty murder of a hero NYPD street cop.

Tarantino had fired up the crowd by complaining that cops are too often “murderers.” “When I see murders, I do not stand by . . . I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers,” he blathered to a cheering rally-goers.

Quentin Tarantino at anti-cop rally

The NY Post reports that Tarantino is now lying about a claim he had served time in a Los Angeles County jail. I guess in order to give him more “street cred” for his anti-cop antics.

On a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Tarantino recounted it again to claim solidarity with police protesters — that he understands what it means to be frightened of cops. “Back when I was in my 20s and broke, I was a little scared of the cops, all right?” Tarantino told ­Maher. “And oftentimes, I had warrants out on me for traffic stuff that I never took care of and everything . . . I’d get stopped, and I’d have to do eight days in county jail.”

This isn’t the first time Tarantino has told this story. In 1992 he told Paris Voice a version of the same story. “If I had a brush with the law, I think I’d wise up fast,” he said. “I spent eight days in the county jail on traffic warrants once. At first, I thought, ‘Wow, I’m going to pick up some great dialogue in here.’ But then you realize what a waste of time it is. They treat you like an animal, and nobody wants to be treated like an animal.

There multiple versions of his incarceration tale. In some, he did one stint in jail; in others, he has done multiple. One was printed in a 1997 profile of Tim Roth in GQ UK magazine: “Tarantino . . . had worked in a video shop and he had spent eight days in LA County jail for unpaid parking tickets.” In Jeffrey Dawson’s 2000 biography “Quentin Tarantino: The Cinema of Cool,” the writer-director is quoted as saying, “I went to jail about three different times just for warrants on me for moving violations . . . They had warrants on me for three years and eventually I got stopped and they sent me to jail.” In 2009, the British news site quoted Tarantino as saying, “I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learned some great dialogue.”

A key story in his “story” is that Tarantino worked at LA’s Video Archives rental store for five years as a budding filmmaker. In the ­Maher appearance, he said he couldn’t pay his traffic tickets because he earned only $10,000 a year.

There’s just one problem: The LA County Sheriff’s Department has no record of the filmmaker ever being in its system. At The Post’s request, the department searched its files back through the 1980s, when Tarantino would have been incarcerated. “A check of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department jail records revealed no evidence that Mr. Tarantino was ever incarcerated in our jail system,” said Capt. Christopher Reed of the Sheriff’s Office.

Tarantino’s agent, lawyer, publicists and Harvey Weinstein, who produced the director’s upcoming movie, “The Hateful Eight” did not respond to any of The Post’s calls or emails. The Post also left voice mails on Tarantino’s personal phone line. No one responded to any of the inquiries.


P.S. Remember to boycott Tarantino’s new movie, The Hateful Eight, which opens on Christmas Day.

Nationwide Media Blackout on Amazon’s Ban of ‘Nobody Died at Sandy Hook’

Dr. Eowyn:

Add to the nationwide media blackout the fact that Alex Jones’ InfoWars took down its post on’s suppression of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. See:

On November 21 a press release reproduced below announcing’s censorship of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook was sent to almost 23,000 news media outlets by Sherwood Ross Associates, a Miami Florida-based public relations firm.

Thus far almost without exception the press release has been ignored, bannedbooksrepresenting a wall-to-wall media blackout of the retail powerhouse’s incredible act of prior restraint-style suppression.

Further, journalists at those very media now have an opportunity to download the book for free and judge the validity of the research for themselves.

Spike Lee urges female college students to go on a “sex strike” to stop date rape

Conceal carry would be my preferred action to stop any rape or sexual assault. But that just me :)

Would you take advice from a man wearing this t-shirt?

Would you take advice from a man wearing this t-shirt?

Spike Lee has a brilliant solution to solve college campus sexual assaults: female students across the country should stage a ‘sex strike’ in a bid to stop sexual harassment on campus. He believes there is an abundance of sexual assaults and rapes on campus and says that women should take action to stop it.

Say anything to promote your movie...

Say anything to promote your movie…

The Daily Mail reports that Lee made these comments while appearing on the Stephen Colbert show to promote his new film “Chi-Raq“. Lee said, “I think a sex strike could really work on college campuses where there’s an abundance of sexual harassments or date rapes.”

Lee went on to say, “Once people coming back from Christmas and some stuff jumps off, there’s going to be sex strikes in universities and college campuses across this country.”

Lee’s movie idea isn’t even original: The film is based on Lysistrata, a Greek comedy play in which various women withhold physical affection from their husbands as punishment for fighting in war. Lee’s movie stars Samuel L. Jackson, Wesley Snipes and Nick Cannon. It follows four women who try and fight gun crime by refusing sex.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel isn’t happy with the title of the movie (truth hurts, I guess).  Emanuel said, ” I was clear that I was not happy about the title. I told him also that there are very good people that live in Englewood who are raising their family and there’s a lot of positive things that are happening in Englewood mainly driven by the people that make up Englewood.”

And even though Chicago has some of the strictest gun regulations in the United States, Spike Lee has another brilliant solution to the gun violence in Chiraq:

Great concept Spike! I’m sure all the criminals will be lining up to register their guns!



Woman asks strangers to send Christmas cards to her 85 y.o. mother

Doreen Gilbert

Doreen Gilbert

MyFoxBoston reports, via MyFoxMemphis, Nov. 24, 2015, that an 85-year-old Canadian woman named Doreen Gilbert loves Christmas cards.

Her daughter, Jane Gilbert, explains that one of her mother’s favorite things during the holidays “is not the gifts or the food, it’s checking the mailbox every day to see if, by chance, there is a Christmas card for her.”

Sadly, the cards have dwindled over the years because many of Doreen’s friends and family members have passed on.

So, on Nov. 22, Jane posted a request on her Facebook page asking that friends and strangers consider taking the time to send her elderly mother a Christmas card: “If you can find it in your heart to send my Mum a card, even if you don’t personally know her, it would let her know that she is not forgotten.”

Doreen lives with her daughter in Toronto, Ontario. If you would like to send Doreen a card, here’s the address:

Mrs. Doreen Gilbert
Shoppers World Postal Outlet
3003 Danforth Avenue
P.O Box 93586
Toronto, Ontario, Canada M4C 5R4

I can’t help but wonder how meaningful Christmas cards can be if they’re from strangers.



Brad Pitt: “We don’t always know best so let’s check ourselves”

The agnostic philosopher actor, Brad Pitt, was working hard last week walking the red carpet to promote his new movie The Big Short, which he also produced. From IMDB the movie is about “four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predicted the credit and housing bubble and decide to take on the big banks for their lack of foresight and greed.”

Brad PittThe film deals with the credit and housing collapse of 2007 – 2010 and clearly raises Pitt’s ire. He said, “This entitlement that you can make money off the backs of others without being responsible to what it’s doing to them or what it could do to them drives me crazy,” he told Confidenti@l. “The fact that no one was held accountable after this mass failure drives me crazy so I wanted this story told. I’m really proud to be able to tell this story.

He also has some also had some “words of advice” for voters in the upcoming presidential election. “Don’t be so emotional,” he cautioned. “Don’t see the world from our own backyard. Understand everyone has self-interest and that we are now in a community. We are not an island and we don’t always know best so let’s check ourselves.

“Let’s check ourselves?” What is he referring to? The Syrian refugee crisis? Newsbusters claims that Pitt was referring to the American people to stop being so closed-minded about the foreigners in their panic after the Paris attacks. Americans somehow think they’re an island of xenophopic egotists.

So let’s look at how Pitt takes care of his “self-interest” shall we? I carry because I can’t afford to travel with a big bodyguard (or several of them), as the Pitts typically do, all over the world.

And looks to me that the Pittts have PLENTY of room to welcome some refugees:

Château Miraval, owned by the Pitts

Château Miraval, owned by the Pitts

The Pitts own this wonderful chateau and vineyard, located in France. Their chateau has 35 rooms and is surrounded by gardens with a moat, fountains, ancient aqueducts, a pond and a chapel. Plenty of room for the “women and orphan” refugees to run around and relax. Or is his chateau “an island”?

But I’m sure Brad knows best. Typical Hollyweird elitist hypocrite.

GOP operatives coordinate anti-Trump movement via ad blitz


Fox News reports, Nov. 24, 2015, that as Donald Trump continues to dominate the polls (the latest Fox News poll has Trump with a record 28% support from primary voters), a “prominent GOP operative” and Republican donors with links to several other presidential candidates are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Trump to keep him from winning the nomination.

The “guerrilla campaign” is led by a group called Trump Card LLC and run by Liz Mair, former communications official for the Republican National Committee. Mair was also, briefly (one day), the online communications strategist for Scott Walker’s failed presidential campaign.

Liz Mair

Trump Card LLC’s goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from donors to “defeat and destroy” Trump. The donors will be anonymous because Trump Card would not have to disclose donors.

The super PAC supporting the candidacy of Ohio Gov. John Kasich is planning to air attack ads against Trump in New Hampshire. Trump Card LLC is also getting funding from donors backing candidates other than Kasich, including Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Trump Card wants $250,000 from the other GOP presidential campaigns to run anti-Trump TV, radio and web ads and to pitch opposition research to local stations in early-voting states.

In addition to the pro-Kasich and Trump Card groups, the super PAC associated with the fiscal conservative Club for Growth is trying to raise money to resume anti-Trump ads, after running a reported $1 million worth earlier this year in Iowa.

Some in the Republican establishment and GOP “donor class” fear the party will lose the general election if Trump wins the nomination, arguing his comments and views are alienating Hispanic and black voters. Liz Mair wrote in a memo obtained by The Journal:

“In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race. “he stark reality is that unless something dramatic and unconventional is done, Trump will be the Republican nominee and Hillary Clinton will become president.”

The relationship between old guard Republicans and Trump has been rocky from the start. Trump had complained about being treated unfairly by the Republican National Committee and threatened to mount an independent candidacy. But he eventually signed a pledge stating he wouldn’t run as an independent and would support the nominee if he lost.

But after news broke about the concerted effort to undermine him, Trump is hinting he might consider breaking away. He said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week”: “We’ll see what happens. I have to be treated fairly.… If I’m treated fairly, I’m fine.”


1995 Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was a Muslim sympathizer


The popular image of 1995 Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh is that of a twisted “patriot” out to avenge government actions at Waco and Ruby Ridge. This is what Wikipedia says about McVeigh:

McVeigh, a Persian Gulf War veteran, sought revenge against the federal government for its handling of the Waco Siege, which ended in the deaths of 76 people exactly two years before the bombing, as well as for the Ruby Ridge incident in 1992. McVeigh hoped to inspire a revolt against what he considered to be a tyrannical federal government.

From the beginning, the media had portrayed McVeigh and co-conspirator Terry Nichols as extremist, “right-wing,” Christian nut-cases. Just recently, on ABC’s The View on November 17, co-host Joy Behar called Americans unChristian for objecting to Obama’s program of bringing unvetted Muslim “refugees” to the United States. Behar then implied that Syrian Christian refugees are dangerous because “Timothy McVeigh was a Christian.” (See “Whoopi Goldberg, the woman who named herself after farting, says Christians are just as dangerous as Muslims“)

Joy Behar

Joy Behar

But The Federalist points out that McVeigh wasn’t a Christian — he identified himself as an agnostic. Though raised as a Roman Catholic, McVeigh stated in his 2002 biography American Terrorist that he did not believe in a hell and that science was his religion. In June 2001, a day before the execution, McVeigh wrote a letter to the Buffalo News identifying himself as agnostic.

More than that, McVeigh was a Muslim sympathizer.

In her bestseller, The Third Terrorist, investigative journalist Jayna Davis presents the evidence showing that Timothy McVeigh was a front man for Middle Eastern terrorists, and that a third co-conspirator was an Iraqi — the mysterious “John Doe” who was never found. Davis says the evidence was ignored and dismissed because the Clinton Administration didn’t want to go to war with Iraq, the likely culprit, and wanted to blame the attack on domestic right-wingers for political reasons.  

Roger Aronoff of Accuracy in Media writes:

Davis makes a convincing case that in fact McVeigh “was a handpicked dupe, set up to take the fall in order to save his Islamic collaborators from prosecution.” She documents that he had expressed a desire to be a mercenary for Middle Eastern terrorists, and that the trail of evidence that both he and his accomplice Terry Nichols left behind points in the direction of an Arab/Muslim connection to the attack.

In her book, Davis details sworn affidavits from very credible witnesses who link McVeigh and Nichols to former Iraqi soldiers in the U.S. who were anti-American infiltrators wanting revenge on America’s Middle East policy. For that, Davis said she was called a racist:

“I’m an NBC affiliated reporter, I was from the mainstream media, but I was branded a racist, and politically incorrect, because I was pursuing legitimate leads and evidence that led to foreign involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing,” she said. “So by virtue of securing his [1996] White House bid by blaming right-wing rhetoric for inciting Timothy McVeigh, Bill Clinton was able to seal the case. That was it. It was domestic, home-grown terrorism. And now, fifteen years later, he comes out with the temerity and absolute audacity to try to compare these Tea Party conservatives with [McVeigh] a bloodthirsty terrorist. I mean, nothing could be further from the truth. “

In a 1,200-word essay dated March 1998, from the federal maximum-security prison at Florence, Colorado, McVeigh claimed that the Oklahoma City bombing was “morally equivalent” to U.S. military actions against Iraq and other foreign countries. The essay marked the first time that McVeigh publicly discussed the Oklahoma City bombing. He wrote:

The administration has said that Iraq has no right to stockpile chemical or biological weapons (“weapons of mass destruction”) — mainly because they have used them in the past.

Well, if that’s the standard by which these matters are decided, then the U.S. is the nation that set the precedent. The U.S. has stockpiled these same weapons (and more) for over 40 years….

Remember Dresden? How about Hanoi? Tripoli? Baghdad? What about the big ones — Hiroshima and Nagasaki? (At these two locations, the U.S. killed at least 150,000 non-combatants — mostly women and children — in the blink of an eye. Thousands more took hours, days, weeks or months to die).

If Saddam is such a demon, and people are calling for war crimes charges and trials against him and his nation, why do we not hear the same cry for blood directed at those responsible for even greater amounts of “mass destruction” — like those responsible and involved in dropping bombs on the cities mentioned above?

The truth is, the U.S. has set the standard when it comes to the stockpiling and use of weapons of mass destruction.

Four years after his conviction, McVeigh was executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001.

Jayna Davis’s book has received the endorsement of, among other authorities:

  • Former CIA director Jim Woolsey.
  • David Schippers, former congressional investigator and a seasoned prosecutor responsible for prosecuting the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton.
  • Larry Johnson, a former deputy director of the State Department’s Office of Counter Terrorism. According to the Wall Street Journal, Johnson said, “Looking at the Jayna Davis material, what’s clear is that more than Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols were involved. Without a doubt, there’s a Middle Eastern tie to the Oklahoma City bombing.”

This is what Jayna Davis said about the official and media version of the Oklahoma City bombing:

“Here’s where I think it, it lies: It’s going to have to be the peasants with the pitchforks. These people are going to have to rise up, just like the Tea Party movement is angry about Washington policies that affect their pocketbooks and the future of their children and the national deficit. They’re going to have to rise up and demand that this record is corrected.”

Otherwise, the liberal left will continue to use their version of Oklahoma City to smear anybody critical of their control of the federal government. Davis said:

“They’re going to continue to label anybody who carries a placard or raises a voice of dissent in a peaceful protest as a ‘Tim McVeigh wannabe.’  And until The Third Terrorist, and this evidence embodied in my book, is actually proven, prosecuted, and validated in a courtroom setting, the label of ‘Tim McVeigh wannabe’ is going to continue to be attached to God-fearing Americans who dare to step forward and question and hold to account their elected officials.

My belief is, the best way to get this into a courtroom, and to finally seek justice for the slain of April 19th, 1995, is to pressure the District Attorney of Oklahoma County, who single-handedly holds the legal power to go out and arrest these Arab suspects and put them on trial. He does not need the permission of the federal government. He can act single-handedly, either put it before a grand jury and issue an indictment, or he can just issue arrest warrants based on the evidence and talk to the witnesses.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, the court did not grant McVeigh’s attorney Stephen Jones’s request to comb through U.S. intelligence files in search of an Iraq connection to the Oklahoma City bombing. For his part, when he sentenced McVeigh to death, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch said, “It would be disappointing to me if the law enforcement agencies of the United States government have quit looking for answers.”

AIM’s Roger Aronoff asked readers to phone Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater at (405) 713-1600 or here, and ask respectfully that he act on the evidence presented by Jayna Davis.

That was in April 2010, more than 5 years ago.
