Norma McCorvey, better known as plaintiff “Jane Roe” in the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the U.S., makes an important cameo appearance in the upcoming big-screen Hollywood movie Doonby, now being screened for select audiences. The film, a psychological thriller that addresses abortion and other life issues, stars John Schneider (of Dukes of Hazard fame, left) as a mysterious drifter who blows into a small Texas community, drawing first the admiration, and then the suspicion and animosity of the townspeople.

Have you ever wondered what goes on in those left-wing, politically correct “leadership seminars” in which individuals learn how to become “leaders”? Who and what are they trying to lead? According to Beverly Eakman, America’s best writer on the subject of psychological warfare, these so-called leaders are professionally trained to manipulate you in going along with a group that promotes an idea, or a program, or a policy which you may at first not agree with, but in the end find yourself unable to resist.
From the time Barack Obama received the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, his detractors to his right have repeatedly lambasted him for his disdain for the Constitution. From FOX News personalities to talk radio hosts, many are the self-professed champions of the Constitution who spare no occasion to warn the rest of us of the “radical” designs that Obama and his minions seek to impose upon the Republic bequeathed to us by the Founders.
Every presidential election season, those of us who find ourselves less than enthused regarding the GOP’s potential nominees — conservatives — are invariably castigated by politicians and pundits alike as “purists.” We are unrealistic, we are told by the self-styled champions of “conservative values” — the Anti-Purists — in expecting an “ideal candidate.” We are reminded furthermore that should we decide to sit out the election or cast a “protest” vote, we will, in effect, have casted a vote for the Democratic contender. When, as is usually the case, disenchantment with the Republican candidate stems from the perception that he or she is a bit too accommodating of “abortion rights,” the conservative is scolded for being a “one-issue” voter.
