Danny Glover, actor and friend of Hugo Chavez, knows what caused the earthquake in Haiti this past week. Apparently he dabbles in geology in his spare time.
From Ethel Fenig in the American Thinker:
Most geologists, geographers and other earth scientists have explained how the movement of tectonic plates caused the tragic earthquake in Haiti.Most. But not all.The most authoritative, the most knowledgeable scientist disagrees. This respected scientist, who also moonlights as actor Danny Glover, knows what really, really is responsible for the earthquake’s horror. Graciously sharing his advanced scientific and technical insight with the rest of the world so it won’t occur again, he clearly explains
“What happened in Haiti could happen to anywhere in the Caribbean because all these island nations are in peril because of global warming.”
“When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m saying? We have to act now!”
Excellent interview in the Wall Street Journal with Andrew Breitbart titled ‘Taking on the Democrat-Media Complex’. Breitbart is one of the rare Hollywood Conservatives who grew up in Hollywood as a Liberal, as most do. But the Clarence Thomas hearings in 1991 opened his, and many others’, eyes to the hypocrisy of Liberalism. Andrew’s been on quite a tear since.

From Big Hollywood we learn that Michael Moore’s latest film, Capitalism: A Love Story, tanked at the Box Office this weekend. Those results, coupled with Polanski’s legal issues, made it a tough week for the Hollywood Left.
Tough times for leftie Hollywood. Nothing’s gone right this week. None of this is their fault, of course. In order to understand that it might not be a good idea to rally around a child rapist, bash religion in a religious country or trash capitalism in a capitalist country you have to live in the real world…
Michael Moore’s CAPITALISM tanks!
Ricky Gervais has launched his second consecutive box office bomb as The Invention of Lying (Warner Bros) only mustered $2.2M or so to start the 3-day. The comedy should finish #5 with approximately $6.5M for the weekend. …
[B]ut the biggest disappointment of the weekend is Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story (Overture). After a $57K per theatre average on 4 screens last weekend, the picture broke to a wider 962 locations with terrible results. The “documentary” only sold an estimated $1.3M in tickets to start the weekend, and it will finish at about $3.9M for a PTA of less than $4,000. That soft opening will almost certainly make Capitalism Moore’s weakest-grossing movie since 2002’s Bowling for Columbine ($21.5M domestic gross).
As if all this isn’t enough for our friends on the left to take in, you have $800 billion spent to get us to 9.8% unemployment, the *poof* of the public option, and a nine-month World Apology Tour resulting in Rio getting the Olympics.
And what can we expect as a result of these “teachable moments?”
What’s that phrase again…? Oh, yeah: More Of The Same.
