Jeff Lord on piss-weak Establishment Right losers

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

A brilliant six-page article by Jeffrey Lord at American Spectator contrasting the Ronald Reagan mentality with the Establishment Right mentality.

Excerpts …

If, went the idea, Communists could somehow take control of the most powerful communications tool in all of America the Communist world movement would have scored the coup of coups.

Hollywood films had a weekly audience of half a billion people around the world. A Communist takeover of Hollywood and its filmmaking capacity would be second only to taking over the U.S. government itself.

So let’s return to present day America. The America where John Sununu and the GOP Establishment are out there targeting Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, the Tea Party and more.

… What is the central difference between the GOP Establishment and those (and others) named above?

 … after decades of left-wing devotion to the hijacking of America, to the idea of transforming it, there are still Republicans and even some conservatives who don’t understand the nature of either their opponents or their opponents’ objectives.

Highly recommended reading.

Honda Hands video: Let’s see what curiosity can do

A beautiful and intriguing 2 minute animation ad by Honda.

The AdsGarage writes:

For its 65th anniversary, Honda released this fabulous commercial showcasing all there achievement from the 24th of September 1948 till today.

A bolt reaching the hands of that Honda engineer (I guess) is transformed from motorcycles to cars, to people movers, supercars, boats and even four-wheel farm bikes and jets.

It is a very clever way of showing, in a 1:56 minutes video, all the industries that those Honda engineers were able to tackle so far.

The ad is done by Wieden + Kennedy London the company responsible for the 2003 Honda “Cog” commercial that has been named the best car commercials of all time by AutoExpress. This all-new spot called Hands is even more entertaining and might aswell dethrone the old one. The two commercials are linked below. Enjoy!

If you want to see some more magnificent advertisements — cinematic and commercial masterpieces — created by Wieden + Kennedy CLICK HERE.
