BEHOLD: A dog that looks like Vladimir Putin

A man in the Ukraine noticed that his dog looks like Vladimir Putin. Actually, the dog looks friendlier.

To paraphrase the popular meme: In Soviet Russia, dogs remove your testicles.


Raiders of the Lost Ark actor hates Israel

You know how they always say that artists are open-minded, tolerant types? Let's shatter that myth once again. In 2012, a number of British actors and playwrights protested (via an open letter) an invitation to Israel's national theatre company, Habima, to perform at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London as part of an international festival.

They were upset that Israel was invited to participate because they claim Israelis took land from the Palestinians. You know, those guys that support terrorism when they aren't blowing themselves up, along with hundreds of innocent people. And don't even get us started on the rockets they fire from the West Bank into civilian areas. Or their dancing in the streets to celebrate the 9/11 attacks on our country. Yeah, those poor, innocent, oppressed folk.

Among those who signed the letter was Paul Freeman, whose name may not ring a bell with you, but his face surely will, as he has appeared in a number of film roles, including Ivan Ooze, the villain in the 1995 Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers movie. Missed that one? Consider yourself lucky.

However, you likely will remember him as Rene Belloq, the French archaeologist and nemesis of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark. I found just a bit ironic that a guy who dressed in ceremonial Jewish robes in a film that featured the wrath of God unleashed on the enemies of Israel would dare to criticize them in real life. Does he not remember what happened to his character? Sometimes, actors can be very stupid people.

Scarlett Johansson bucks trend of anti-Israel celebrities (and we name names)

We've criticized actress Scarlett Johansson on this site before (click here to read about her bizarre speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2012) but we also feel it is important to give credit where credit is due, even to liberal celebrities. So here's a little love for the Avengers' Black Widow.

According to a report by Benny Avni of The New York Post, Johansson was recently the target of much criticism from the left because she recently signed on as a spokesperson for Sodastream, the "make your own soda at home" company. A number of left-wing, anti-Israel activists are upset by this, because Sodastream has a factory in the West Bank. Liberal human rights group Oxfam International criticized Johansson for supporting an Israeli company in what they consider Palestinian land. Johansson, who is Jewish, isn't budging on her stand.

Many of these anti-Israel activists support boycotts of any businesses connected to the Jewish state, and in true liberal fashion, they hurt the very people they claim to support. Sodastream employs hundreds of Palestinians in their Israeli factories, paying them the same as their Jewish co-workers.

According to Avni, a number of celebrities are vocal supporters of the anti-Israel movement and boycott the country, including Vanessa Redgrave and Emma Thompson. Elvis Costello, Annie Lennox, Roger Waters, and Stevie Wonder refuse to perform in Israel. Waters, in particular, routinely bashes Israel and delivers anti-Semitic rants, according to Avni.

A number of musicians, however, do perform in Israel and defy the boycott. They include Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Neil Young, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Madonna and Bob Dylan.


Sarah Silverman's YouTube video features a pro-abortion Jesus

Comedian Sarah Silverman posted a YouTube comedy sketch today in which Jesus Christ visits her, drops an F-bomb, and asks her to spread his message - that women should be allowed to have abortions.

The video, called "Sarah Silverman is visited by Jesus Christ," also features actor Michael Weatherly, who plays Anthony DiNozzo on the hit CBS series NCIS, as Jesus. The video (featured below) shows Jesus appearing in a glittering light to Silverman in her apartment, and asking her to spread his message to people, while dropping the F-word in the process. Silverman then asks "Jesus" when life begins, and Weatherly responds "Fertilized eggs aren't people. People are people."

While wearing a shirt that says "Feminist" on it (apparently that needed to be made clear), Silverman then goes in an odd direction, ranting that "under God" wasn't added to the Pledge of Allegiance until the 1950s. She also gets angry when pointing out that "In God We Trust" became the nation's motto around the same time, saying it was in direct contradiction to the separation of church and state our nation's fathers intended.

Silverman then begins to blame religious intrusion in government for new laws making access to "safe abortions" harder to get. She criticizes Rick Perry for supporting a law that would reduce the number of abortion clinics in Texas from 42 to 5. She says "a woman should not have to pack a lunch to get health care." By "health care," she means an abortion. Silverman fails to mention that the clinics would close because the doctors performing the abortions there must be qualified enough to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Most are not.

She also rants that women in Texas are "violated" by being "forced" to endure a sonogram showing the "fetus" before getting an abortion. She counters that men, in turn, should have a probe inserted into their penis, since sperm also show signs of "life."

The video is in support of a pro-abortion group called Lady Parts Justice.

Here is the video. Caution: there is very strong language.

GOP group: free markets should drive immigration policy

Bob Quasius of the Cafe con Leche Republicans has published a column on as part of an ongoing debate on immigration reform. He points out that conservatives should reject the current bureaucratic, over-regulated immigration system, and dispels a number of myths about immigrants. When Liberals Attack is proud to support Bob and the Cafe con Leche Republicans, who are moving beyond rhetoric and trying to solve a real problem.

Most people are unaware of what a ridiculous mess our current immigration system is. I didn't know myself until I met Ralph Isenberg of the Isenberg Center for Immigration Empowerment and began hearing horror stories from people they help - immigrants who thought they were doing the right things to be here legally, only to meet a faceless, heartless bureaucracy. Who handles immigration issues? The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the same guys who have been buying up ammo and military equipment for no good reason. Do we really think they want to help someone stay here legally when they need to meet a quota set by President Obama that says they need to deport millions of people every year?

Disturbing facts about Wendy Davis' life revealed

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has built up an image of a strong, independent single mother whose hard work and determination took her from a trailer park, to Harvard, and then to the Texas Senate. However, a new report by Wayne Slater of The Dallas Morning News paints a much different picture than the one Davis and her campaign have painted, and it isn't very flattering. The report, in fact, reveals that Davis glossed over and even misrepresented some aspects of her personal life. She explained the situation by telling the Morning News that "my language should be tighter" when recounting her past.

LA Times writer: The Bible threatens to limit American liberty

History tells us that, for many of America’s forefathers, the fight for liberty was inspired by their Christian faith, best summed up by the idea that we are all endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. According to Los Angeles Times columnist/cartoonist David Horsey, however, the Bible preaches anything but that. In fact, he argues that the Bible preaches a gospel that limits liberty, namely gay rights.

Scientists shoot down Obama's climate change agenda

Much of the nation is still thawing out from the recent polar vortex, but the Obama White House is already trying to spin the event as a result of climate change. On January 10, the White House hosted a “We the Geeks” video chat through Google Plus, discussing, as they describe it, “extreme weather events in the context of a changing climate.” Despite the White House’s best efforts, however, the experts couldn’t even agree that the recent extreme weather was the result of climate change.

The chat included a number of weather experts, as well as advocates from climate change organizations and White House staff. While the discussion was supposed to explain the science behind the polar vortex, the conversation eventually came around to the discussion of climate change, playing right into the President’s environmental policy.

Creepy TSA video shows us all as submissive dogs

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would prefer that you obey them like a good puppy the next time you are stopped by them at an airport check-in.

That apparently is the takeaway from a new TSA cartoon aimed at kids. The two minute cartoon, available online (and included below), was created to help kids become more comfortable with the heavy-handed security measures at TSA airport checkpoints. Instead, the cartoon comes across as somewhat creepy, with talking dogs that walk upright, a submissive attitude toward government officials, and the joys of walking through a metal detector.

Dennis Rodman won't help American missionary held by North Korea

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman went on a profanity-laced tirade in a CNN interview Tuesday over his support of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and his refusal to speak out for an American missionary imprisoned by him. Kenneth Bae has been jailed in North Korea since 2012 for crimes against the government, which have never been detailed. He was sentenced to 15 years hard labor last year and is reportedly in ill health. Rodman is currently in North Korea on a goodwill tour with a number of former NBA players, and gave CNN an interview from Pyongyang this morning.

When Chris Cuomo of CNN's "New Day" asked Rodman if he would intervene on Bae's behalf, the former All-Star exploded., saying at one point, "I don't give a s**t." Rodman then deflected any notion that he could speak with his professed friend Kim Jong Un about Bae's case, saying instead the trip should be about the former NBA players touring with him.

"You know, you've got 10 guys here, 10 guys here, they've left their families, they've left their damn families, to help this country, as in a sports venture," Rodman said. "That's 10 guys, all these guys here, do anyone understand that?"

Rodman then took aim at Cuomo, after the CNN anchor suggested he use his position with Un to help Bae. "I don't give a rat's ass what the hell you think," he said. "I'm saying to you, look at these guys here, look at them ... they dared to do one thing, they came here."

When Rodman did address Bae's situation, he offered no sympathy, despite Cuomo pushing for facts. "Kenneth Bae did one thing. If you understand what Kenneth Bae did," he said. "Do you understand what he did in this country? No, no, no, you tell me, you tell me. Why is he held captive here in this country, why? I would love to speak on this."

After again deflecting the issue to talk about the players with him, Cuomo said "Don't use these guys as a shield for you," with Rodman insisting his efforts will open doors in North Korea. Charles Smith, one of the former NBA players accompanying Rodman on the North Korea trip, later told ESPN he regretted what the trip had become, saying politics had overshadowed the humanitarian intent.

Here's video of the exchange:

Check out MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry's "apology" tweets to Mitt Romney

Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC isn't exactly a beacon of journalistic impartiality (the fact that she's an MSNBC host should make that obvious), but even she reached Martin Bashir-like depths when she posted a picture of Mitt Romney's family during her December 29 show and proceeded (with her panelists) to ridicule his black adopted grandchild, who was sitting on the governor's lap. Even the UK's The Guardian was taken aback at the pompous insensitivity, which included singing "One of these things is not like the others" and remarks about black Republicans.

The outrage was immediate, but Harris-Perry's eventual apology was not. It took two days, but she did finally issue an apology - by Twitter. In true liberal fashion, however, she made sure not to let a professional crisis go to waste, as she attached a promotional hashtag - #MHPApology - to each of the five tweets that made up the apology. I suppose she thought the world was waiting with bated breath to hear her response, and she expected it to trend on Twitter (spoiler - it didn't). She also admits that she too, like the Romney baby, was a black child born into a white Mormon family, which makes her treatment of the Romneys that much more hypocritical and unbelievable. She also uses the term "transracial" instead of biracial, which sounds like an odd spin on transgendered. Check out the tweets after the break.

NBC New Year's Eve host mocks WW2 vets

What is it with idiotic New Year's Eve show hosts? It seems they don't even need alcohol to create controversy. Having Kathy Griffin co-host CNN's coverage is reason enough never to channel surf there, but now you can cross NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly off the viewing list next year as well.

On this year's show, Daly had some comedy hack named Natasha Leggero (left) on as a co-host. Her biggest credit to date is a Yahoo web series, which tells you all you need to know about her talent level. In discussing various news stories from 2013, Leggero remarked about the recent controversy in which SpaghettiO's tweeted a picture of their smiling mascot to mark Pearl Harbor Day. It was deemed insensitive, but it was nothing compared to what Leggero said about the controversy: “It sucks that the only survivors of Pearl Harbor are being mocked by the only food they can still chew.” Check out the video for yourself, and make note of actor Anthony Anderson's reaction, who finds it hilarious:

Not surprisingly, Leggero has yet to comment or apologize. Hopefully, she'll return to her place under the rock of obscurity she came from.

The artist behind the Trayvon Martin nativity scene speaks

You likely heard about the Christmas Nativity display at Claremont United Methodist Church in California, which featured a bleeding Trayvon Martin in the place of the baby Jesus. In this YouTube video, the artist behind the display, John Zachary, somehow tries to justify how this is appropriate.

Lost in this whole debate is the fact that no one, except for Zimmerman and Martin, know what happened that night. Both have their supporters and critics, and neither wants to admit that each one holds some responsibility in what happened. Both if them chose to confront each other when both had chances to walk away. This feeble attempt to paint Martin as an innocent victim is an insult to common sense and the miracle of the birth of Christ. This isn't the first time Zachary has used a nativity scene to make controversial social statements, and the United Methodist Church is to blame for allowing him to do this year after year. 

Cultural exhibitionism or political grandstanding? The motives behind the Rose Parade gay wedding

The motivation behind a Rose Parade float featuring a gay wedding depends on who you ask. The float, sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), featured a wedding cake with two men on top, who married during the parade. Millions witnessed the wedding this morning, in person or on television, during the annual New Year's tradition.

According to AHF, the theme of the float was "Love is the Best Protection." It seems like an odd, if not dangerous, statement to make for an organization trying to stop the spread of AIDS (doctors would argue a condom or abstinence might protect a bit better). They also say the float was meant to celebrate the legalization of gay marriage in several states. Their website included an op-ed from the LA Daily News stating gay marriage is now as mainstream as the Rose Parade itself. From their standpoint, the float, and the wedding, were part of a larger political statement.
