Movie Review: Run.Hide.Fight — Easily The Best Movie Released Since Covid

Run. Hide. Fight is a fantastic film. Go watch it!

I’m a movie buff. Always have been, always will be. My dad and my uncle Sargon used to take me to movies when I was a kid, and I was hooked. Going to the movies with my dad and uncle was the highlight of my week.

And Hollywood was a dream factory that delivered incredible stories week after week. I fell in love with tough guys like John Wayne, Charles Bronson, and Burt Reynolds. I giggled at the Three Stooges, Laurel & Hardy, and Eddie Murphy. I swooned over femme fatales like Liz Taylor, Kim Novak, and Meg Ryan.

I carried my love for movies into adulthood. Well into my late forties, I always found great Hollywood movies to satiate my addiction to great stories, and the great men and women who brought them to life.

Until about 2012.

Woke ideology began to infect movie making. And Hollywood movies became less about the story, than about appeasing the politically correct nags that insisted movies adhere to the wokist, culturally fascist agenda. Sure, there were still some great movies being made, and some movie makers that had the courage to push back. But every year, there were fewer and fewer of these, and fewer still men and women in Hollywood with the courage to buck the Cancel Cult. As a result, most movies coming out of Hollywood have become utterably unwatchable.

The result has been declining Hollywood box office, as the majority of actual moviegoing Americans hated the crap that Hollywood was dishing out, no matter how many times they shouted that it was a gourmet meal.

The good news is that the marketplace, like nature, abhors a vacuum. And there have been many independent movies made with traditional and Christian themes, that do not adhere to wokist orthodoxy. Actors like Kirk Cameron and Kevin Sorbo have been very successful in making very watchable movies with great storylines. While this community and movement is still dwarfed by Hollywood, it is growing fast.

The latest entrant into traditional, non-wokist moviemaking is conservative media company The Daily Wire, led by Ben Shapiro. They have declared that they will be making a series of traditionally themed movies with strong storytelling at their core.  They have invested money in top-notch production values, and have managed to attract great actors, directors and producers to work with them.

Gin Carano, who the Cancel Cult managed to get fired by Disney, has signed on to produce and star on her own movie with The Daily Wire.

The Daily Wire’s first film is called Run. Hide. Fight. It is the story of a young teenage high school senior whose school is taken over by 4 nihilistic active shooters, and her fight to save her fellow students from certain death, and defeat the bad guys. Isabel May of Netflix’s Alexa & Katie stars as the main protagonist, 17 year old Zoe Hull.  Thomas Jane of the movie The Punisher stars as her father, ex-military man Todd Hull. Zoe is struggling with coming to terms with her mother’s death, and is bitter and angry at the world. All of this becomes moot when the 4 nutcases take over the school and begin shooting people, once of who dies in Zoe’s arms.

I am not going to give away any more details, because I don’t want to spoil the story for you. But it’s a taut, edge-of-your-seat thriller, well-directed by Kyle Rankin. I was riveted for the entire length of the movie, which doesn’t happen much anymore. The story is great, and the ending is brilliant and surprising. Zoe is a strong woman, but she is the antithesis of woke, and that makes her refreshingly relatable.

And all the wokist reviewers hated the movie and trashed it, which is the best endorsement a good movie can get. You can watch the movie by subscribing to the Daily Wire, at www.dailywire.com. They are offering 25% off their regular fee by using the code GINA.

It’s a movie worth watching. And traditional movie makers are worth supporting. Please do both.

Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind: California and its Epic Wildfires

Published

Like the 2018 Camp Fire, California’s Dixie Fire is epic. It has burned more than 220,000 acres and at least 40 structures. It’s the largest conflagration since the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise. Sadly, California wildfires are becoming as common as Florida hurricanes. Why is this happening and who’s to blame? In a word, California.

By mismanaging its forests and water sources and enabling a power provider to place profits over people, the Golden State has sown the wind and is reaping the whirlwind.

Why is every California fire season scarier and more destructive than the last? The reasons can be boiled down to these:

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Red Herring Argument: The KKK Agrees With You

  1. Decades of forest mismanagement caused by environmentalists shaping policy
  2. Co-opted Northern California watersheds and water supply diversion
  3. Hotter temperatures and historic drought conditions caused by climate change
  4. Failing PG&E infrastructure
Forest mismanagement

We live five miles from the southeastern edge of the Dixie Fire. Our little mountain town of Quincy is under an evacuation warning. Many of our fellow residents live in areas of mandatory evacuation and some have lost their homes. Local firefighters and forest experts have known for years this was inevitable.

It’s common sense, really. When forest undergrowth and dead limbs and logs are allowed to pile up between trees, you may as well stack logs at their bases and light a match. Wise forest managers remove forest floor fuels and keep forests from growing dangerously dense.

Foolish forest managers allow undergrowth to flourish in order to “protect” ecological environments of certain species at the expense of overall forest ecology. This hands-off approach is pushed in Sacramento by those who think we’re only one species sharing our environment rather than caretakers of our environment.

Wise gardeners prevent weeds from diverting moisture from produce plants by removing them. This ensures a healthy garden. Why wouldn’t smart forest management include removal of undergrowth and dead or dying trees?

Water diversion

A few years ago, state biologists “gill-netted” vast quantities of fish in our local Silver Lake in order to prevent them from feeding on a certain frog. This decimated the fish population in favor of the frog population. How is this an ecological balance?

Similarly, allowing natural water sources to feed rivers and streams provides better hydration for trees—and raises critical moisture levels for forests. Diverting water from Northern California sources when levels are low exacerbates the deadly dryness of moisture-starved Sierra forests. Shouldn’t there be a better balance based on water levels?

As climate change continues to affect moisture and heat, smart and balanced water management becomes more critical. Yet California continues to base policy decisions reactively rather than proactively. If Northern California watershed areas burn for lack of moisture, poor water management will be partially to blame.

So will California’s reliance on hydroelectric power over traditional (and more effective) fossil-fuel plants. The state gets nearly 2/3 of its power from non-fossil fuel production, which is why it has to buy electricity from states like Oregon, Arizona and others.

Failing PG&E

Failed PG&E power lines are responsible for devastating California wildfires for the last five fire seasons. According to PG&E’s initial report the day the Dixie Fire started, an employee responding to an outage noticed a blown fuse at Cresta Dam in a heavily forested area of Butte County around the Feather River Canyon. He found two blown fuses and a tree leaning on a power conductor. He also found a fire on the ground near the base of the tree.

When the 2018 Camp Fire erupted, a PG&E employee noticed flames caused by a faulty transmission line in Feather River Canyon. Many of these lines are supported by electrical towers from the early 1900s. PG&E customers pay modern rates for modern electricity delivered via century-old towers.

In fairness, PG&E is finally taking steps to modernize its infrastructure with underground line burial and other measures. Sadly, these measures are long overdue and are too little too late for victims of the Camp Fire and now for those dealing with the Dixie Fire. Worse, PG&E seems to be continuing their foot-dragging regarding reporting system failures when they point to a wildfire start.

Closed market

According to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), PG&E ignored regulations that require it to report wildfire-related infrastructure failures within two hours of the event. PG&E took five days to report the Dixie Fire-related failure to CPUC. As a state agency, CPUC answers to Governor Gavin Newsom and Sacramento politicians. PG&E is supposed to answer to CPUC, yet is still failing to follow the rules.

Not only is there a lack of meaningful accountability, the relationship between California and PG&E is dysfunctional. The average citizen wonders why Sacramento continues enabling a repeat offender of a power company. Another question is why California refuses to open up its utility market to competitors in order to force PG&E to modernize its infrastructure.

Something has to change or California will continue to burn every fire season. Close to home, people in our community love living in Northern California, but the Golden State will lose even more citizens if residents have to flee the flames every summer.

Thomas Sowell is many things. He’s a historian, an economist, philosopher, and more. He also may very possibly be the most important scholar that you haven’t heard of. Thomas started life on his own at age 17 when he moved out into a homeless shelter and later was drafted into the Marine Corps.
