Below I posted a video on Cultural Marxism, which I said was a must watch and was curious who was behind it. Thanks to the sleuthing of fellow blogger weavercht, he learned that it is a film by James Jaeger. Since I thought to myself, “This is our kind of guy,” but I didn’t recalled ever hearing of him, I did some internet searching.
First of all, he started Matrixx Productions which makes documentaries. Not all of them are necessarily up our alley, but many are as you can tell by the title list. Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul and Edwin Viera make frequent appearances in his documentaries.
But the guy seems to keep a pretty low profile, I suspect by choice. He has an IMDB entry but it contains no bio. He has a Linked In profile, and he has a Facebook page. I sent him a Facebook friend request, but I suspect he is pretty judicious about who he accepts requests from, because we only have one friend in common. Normally I have a lot of friends in common with people in our “circle.”
Anyway, I suggest buying some of his videos. It looks like a lot of them are available on YouTube, but he deserves some of our money for his efforts.
BTW, one piece of trivia I learned from his IMDB site, Edwin Viera (who I once sat at a table with at a Constitution Party event and bounced some at the time rather amateurish money questions off of) is the brother of Meredith Viera. I had no idea.

Who watches The Walking Dead?
As a Georgian who grew up very near where it is filmed, I have to watch it. Georgians, for the record, are very proud of the show. But I’m sure I would watch it otherwise.
I thought the premiere was quite good, if a little predictable. Reactions from the fan base seem to be largely positive. 9.7 on IMDB. I think the “girl power” contingent is excited by the emergence of Carol as a major bada**. I was surprised that the Terminus situation resolved itself so quickly, and I thought the way they manipulated us with Glenn was a bit cheesy, but all and all it was a very satisfying premiere.
The show works best when the group is on the move rather than camped out on the farm or at the prison, so I think we are being set up for a season on the move.
Reportedly the viewing numbers were huge.
Apparently not. In response to a federal judge’s diktat imposing same-sex “marriage,” thereby overturning the will of the people of the state, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, speaking at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday, issued this Official Grovel:
“It’s my job to enforce the constitution of North Carolina, and the constitution of the United States for that matter. My administration will be ready to execute the law, as the courts have told us to do. Some rulings go your way, some don’t, and that is the beautiful thing about our democracy.”
Yes, Pat, it’s a beautiful thing indeed. The above picture should remind folks what they’re pledging loyalty to when they parrot the Pledge of Allegiance.
Wow! This video is great. It is well done, and it hits so many of the right points. I’m not sure who is behind it, but it looks professional or at least semi professional. It has Cultural Marxism in the title, and at the beginning does an excellent job of explaining what it is. It’s eerie how what the Cultural Marxists had in mind is coming to pass. But the video touches on many of our points – taxes, spending, welfare, original intent, unsound currency, universal nation, guns and even makes a case against the standing army. This is the kind of video you could show an audience of potential converts.
Let me know if you know who is behind this.
Wow. Hadn’t seen this. While I’m pretty sure it’s relation to the old Eastern is just the name, I wish them well.
My dad used to work for Eastern Airlines. The movie Wall Street is roughly based on the dismantling of Eastern by Frank Lorenzo. (Gordon Gecko = Frank Lorenzo). Eastern was broken up and sold off to non-union Continental Airlines in an effort to bust the union. My dad was a victim of Lorenzo’s shenanigans. This is one reason why I am more sympathetic to unions and collective bargaining than many conservatives and less enamored by venture capitalists who strive for efficiency and stock market returns at the expense of real people. Wikipedia says Lorenzo is now a philanthropists. Probably to assuage his guilty conscience.
Yes, unions generally support the wrong party (against their actual interests IMO), and there was likely much inefficiency built into a lot of union contracts (more in reality than by design I suspect), but there is nothing inherently un-conservative about collective bargaining, and it is likely often a wise strategy. Middle class Republican hostility to unions per se (as opposed to who they endorse) is unwise. This is something Pat Buchanan understood.
If it’s true that the person who solicited paid autographs from Gurley is the same person who ratted him out (with video no less), then that joker needs a visit from some guy named Guido and should be eating through a straw for the rest of his miserable life. That would be the rattiest of rat fink moves, and calls for some old school justice.
