Movie: Jason Bourne

Matt Damon is a flaming douchebag and hypocrite, but is not the worst actor that ever became popular. (His hypocrisy on gun-control and green-preaching while flying around on private jets makes him a smuggle). So I usually wait for his films on Netflix or something where he gets a much smaller dollar return on my viewing. But a friend wanted to see it, and I’m not against bad action films, and I’d seen the others in the series, so we went and saw the 4th episode in the trilogy. 

Movie: Hillary’s America

I just saw: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. The subhead ("the Secret History of the Democratic Party") is more apt description of the film than the heading ("Hillary’s America"). It was 75% about the History of the Democrat Party, 20% about Bill and Hillary, and about 5% just filler, Apple Pie, Patriotism, and political propaganda. 

The truth about McCarthyism

> Much of this info comes from M. Stanton Evans painstakingly documented 600 page book: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His fight Against America’s Enemies. Though, over the years, I’ve read quite a few other books, snippets and articles on McCarthy, or the other scandals and players named, Stan’s book is one of the best collections of all the data in one place. While it’s long, I can’t recommend it enough, if you have interest in the technical details of what went on around McCarthy and the Truman/Eisenhower administrations, and want to dive into any of these topics more, it’s in there.
