Only rarely does a new film come along to remind movie lovers of Hollywood’s golden age some 80 years ago. “Greyhound,” starring Tom Hanks, is that sort of old-fashioned thriller, notably enriched by state-of-the-art special effects and riveting action sequences showing World War II’s Battle of the Atlantic.
Hanks, who also wrote the screenplay, portrays a destroyer captain given his first command, leading a crucial Anglo-American convoy across the ocean but facing destruction by “wolf packs” of German submarines. Based on a 1955 novel by C.S. Forester—who also wrote the beloved Horatio Hornblower series—this film gives loving attention to the hero’s profound Christian faith.
Hanks shows the over-burdened commander at prayer on multiple occasions, while portraying the emotional bonds between men of every background facing danger together. As with “Saving Private Ryan,” where Hanks also starred, or the great John Adams miniseries which he produced, “Greyhound” enriches our culture with an inspiring story of American heroism.Read More »
Townhall Review – August 1, 2020
Mike Gallagher looks at Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s recent comment calling President Trump a racist.Read More »
If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it will be because he relied on the disgust of the American people with elites.
Trump will again run on a platform of America first, and on rebuilding the economy he built once before until it was shuttered by the novel coronavirus. He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and to the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.
Trump will also run on his massive deregulation, and the appointment of justices and judges who are faithful to the Constitution.
An often hysterical media endlessly chants the same anti-Trump refrains.
But voters have to ask themselves: Which man do they want squaring off against Xi Jinping, rebuilding the economy, appointing judges, and funding the military?
Trump can embrace this disdain of elites that is widespread. And—yes—he can win again.Read More »

Tech companies are in denial about the risks associated with political bias. They repeatedly feign ignorance before congressional committees and pretend to have no idea what shareholders are talking about when the issue is brought up at annual meetings. I know this from personal experience.
These executives are typically dismissive as though the issue isn’t even worth a discussion.
Well, maybe they’d better listen to the president of the company which in many ways built the modern information economy: Microsoft and their current CEO—Brad Smith. He recently told Neil Cavuto that “we in the tech sector need to step up” when it comes to inclusion of different political views.
So: the denial phase is over.
Microsoft is too big to be written off.
Silicon Valley has a thumb on the scale when it comes to conservatives. It’s up to them to restore our confidence.Read More »
