While Mahomes and Rodgers rallied, Kirk Cousins misses a chance for a clutch Vikings moment

Photo credit: Anthony Soufflé, Star Tribune There are few tools more useful in the tradition of quarterback mythmaking — that act of casting a passer as some type of John Wayne-esque alpha male who keeps his cool when the stakes are highest — than the game-winning drive. Joe Montana built his legacy on pristine statistics (11 TDs and zero interceptions in Super Bowls) and tales of his unflappability (as the 49ers were about to begin their game-winning march in Super Bowl XXIII, Montana, as the s...

For a growing number of evangelical Christians, Trump is no longer the lesser of two evils

It has long been taken for granted that the majority of evangelical Christians in the United States will vote for Donald Trump.That may well be the case. But there are recent signs that fewer evangelicals will support Trump this time around than in 2016. In an August 2020 poll for Fox News, Trump registered a 38-point advantage over Joe Biden among among white evangelical voters. That is impressive, but it pales in comparison with his 61-point advantage over Hillary Clinton among evangelicals in...

The politics of punk in the era of Trump

Trump is Punk! It’s a hashtag. It’s a slogan on t-shirts and trucker hats. It’s a click-bait headline.Milo Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart editor, may have started this buzz with his speech (delivered in drag) at Louisiana State University on 22 September 2016, in which he claimed that “being a Donald Trump supporter is the new punk” because it would “piss off your teachers, piss off your parents, piss off your friends.” Then in October, The Atlantic published “Donald Trump, Sex Pistol: The Pun...

Liam Neeson doesn't steal much more than your time in 'Honest Thief'

By the standards of Liam Neeson thrillers (and there are a lot from which to choose), "Honest Thief" is pretty weak tea, a passable, low-octane action movie that doesn't do much more than steal one's time. Like second-tier John Wayne westerns, Neeson offers enough of what his fans want, but a thin script and stilted dialogue make the battle harder than usual.

A trip to the totally fictitious dystopia of California

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson arrived in Southern California on a beautiful day in January after receiving an unusual letter. “Please come quickly,” the letter urged. “You must help us. The mountains are moving.” Dr. Watson thought perhaps it was his big break in local news at last. He spent the entire flight from London reading a 600-page textbook on earthquakes and sketching major faults on a cocktail napkin. Holmes passed the time by studying maps of cities in Utah, Colorado, Texas, Arizona ...

The Chris Voss Show Podcast – Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation by Kristin Kobes Du Mez

Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation by Kristin Kobes Du Mez Kristindumez.com/ A scholar of American Christianity presents a seventy-five-year history of evangelicalism that identifies the forces that have turned Donald Trump into a hero of the Religious Right. How did a libertine who lacks even the most basic knowledge of the Christian faith win 81 percent of the white evangelical vote in 2016? And why have white evangelicals become a ...

How Did This Get Made: A Conversation With Ron Underwood, Director of ‘Tremors,’ ‘City Slickers,’ and ‘The Adventures of Pluto Nash’

A few months ago, when I resumed writing this column for How Did This Get Made? , I began by making a wish list of filmmakers who I’d been wanting to speak with for years. And one of the people at the top of that list was the subject of today’s piece: Ron Underwood.  Even if you don’t know the name “Ron Underwood,” you’ve probably seen some of his work. Maybe it was when you were a kid. Maybe in school you were shown one of his sweet-natured stop-motion educational films. Films like Court...

Coronavirus hits ‘Bond girl’ from Orange County hard

The James Bond parties, usually in lavish locations around the world, are legendary. Lynn-Holly Johnson said the best one was the Day of the Dead-themed party in Mexico City that coincided with the opening of the James Bond film “Spectre” in 2016. Over the years, Johnson has developed a friendship with the “wildest, most charismatic” Bond Girl, Gloria Hendry, who played Rosie Carver in the film “Live and Let Die.” And, of course, the London events attract fans who have loved James Bond since “Dr...

USC Will Remove John Wayne Exhibit

The actor, who attended USC on a football scholarship in the 1920s, said some intensely racist things in a 1971 interview. So why did an exhibit honoring him go up at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts … in 2012? In any case: “School officials first responded to the protests in December by expanding the exhibit to include Indigenous filmmakers as well as feminist and critical race theory” – but now it’s coming down entirely. – Variety

Liberty, under siege, must be cherished and defended

The Fourth of July is a day on which most Americans enjoy a holiday celebration with their family and friends. In normal years we all enjoy a day at the beach, a barbecue and parades. Flags are waved throughout our communities. Typically, at this time of the year, Californians are making plans to visit one of the dozens of fireworks shows put on throughout the state. This year, however, has hardly been typical, and most of the normal activities that would have otherwise occurred this weekend bee...

As Bastiat would say, peer past the obvious with pandemic policies

This week marks the 219th birthday of the great 19th-century French economist Frederic Bastiat. It’s the perfect time to talk about his famous essay, “That Which is Seen, and that Which is Not Seen,” published in his book, “The Law.” This timeless work remains an essential guide to thinking about policymaking. In that essay, Bastiat writes: “In the department of economy, an act, a habit, an institution, a law, gives birth not only to an effect, but to a series of effects. Of these effects, the f...
