Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Robert Redford: Hypocrite

(The Blast) - Everyone knows the hypocrisy of the environmental movement runs very, very, deep. When it comes to the kings of hypocrisy, none do it better than the limousine liberals in Hollywood.

In this video directed by Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, who produced and directed Not Evil Just Wrong: The True Cost of Global Warming Hysteria, Robert Redford is exposed as the typical Hollywood elite whose actions don’t quite match up to their words.

People like Redford believe they are exempt from the notion of following your words with actions, because they’re doing such good deeds by going around and preaching the evils of corporations and ‘saving our planet’ from “man-made global warming.” They abide by the mentality of “do as I say, not as I do.” After all, if you ask them, they are better than you. Not only are they ‘morally superior’, they’re practically saving you from catching on fire.

Of course, this is nothing new.

Essentially it boils down to this: Robert Redford is opposing an eco-village near his property in the Napa Valley whilst quietly selling $2 million lots in the Sundance Preserve for luxury vacation homes. Take a look.
