In Search of Liberty – An EduDramedy Movie

An Edu–what??  An Educational Dramatic Comedy, a full-length motion picture that not only educates but is highly entertaining.  It is so unique that the term – EduDramedy™ – had to be coined.

IC Liberty Films LLC is an independent movie marketing and distribution company founded by producer and director Norm Novitsky and the first film being distributed in this newly developed genre is In Search of Liberty.

In the family-friendly movie, a captivating statesman from America’s past takes a modern-day family on a series of wild adventures.  With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the U.S. Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack today and what can and must be done to save it.

Key aspects of the Constitution are clearly outlined and important Amendments—such as those guaranteeing freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms, warrants for search and seizure, and more—are shown to be vital in everyday life.

An ensemble cast of veteran and new talent from stage, film, television and lifestyle entertainment bring to life this family-friendly educational adventure about the U.S. Constitution.

The film features Jimmy Hagar, accomplished stage, TV and movie actor; Bobby Deen, a familiar face on numerous cooking shows and the son of American celebrity chef Paula Deen; Karen Boles, publisher and talented movie, TV and voiceover actress; and Simone Griffeth, who starred alongside David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone in “Death Race 2000.”  In addition, brother and sister Kayla and Tyler Huth, of TV’s “Rays Rookies” and “Manhunt Unibomber” respectively, and who both appear in “No Place in this World,” have starring roles.

The movie is available on BluRay, DVD and Digital HD.

Free Speech and what it means to be an American

The rhetoric has increased as officials and players from both the National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association (NBA) deliver their messages to President Trump, responding to what #45 has said about people, especially athletes earning millions, who then disrespect the US Flag and the thousands upon thousands of service men and women who have died to protect our Freedoms.
Trump US FlagMany people cite Colin Kaeperneck as the person who sparked this, yet it seems that Hillary Clinton is actually the one who really set this country on a collision course between the left and right.  That she could accuse Trump of being a racist, misogynist, etc., and those labels accepted as fact by her followers shows how blind these people are.  If Trump oppresses blacks, women and others as Hillary claims why do so many of those people work with him, and in key areas of his business and administration?

If Trump is really a misogynist why on Earth would he have had a woman running his campaign for President of the United States of America? Why would a black woman run the Eric Trump Foundation? There are numerous examples to cite how and why the labels plastered upon him by Hillary are simply not true.  The video below by Lynne Patton really tells a different story than what Hillary spews.

When #45 stated that NFL players should be fired for disrespecting the US Flag I tend to agree with him.  A football player, a basketball player, a musician, when they are on their stage and being paid, they are being paid to ENTERTAIN us, nothing more, nothing less.  If they wish to speak up about what they perceive as social injustices then they should do it on the right platforms, get booked on national radio or TV and cite evidence of the oppression and who is actually doing it.

Colin stated, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”  Sorry, Colin, the United States is NOT oppressive. There are people who are, yes, but not the country as a whole.

When Steph Curry blindly accepts Hillary’s and Barack’s condemnations about our president and says he does not wish to visit the White House, fine. Don’t go. But don’t expect me to support you anymore because of your blinded beliefs that the president is the cause of our discontentment, our current division. Your pal LeBron called #45 a bum. Real class, Bron. You are losing all respect I have had for you (and what you do for your community). You, too,  are blinded by Hillary and Barack.  Barack is a Socialist, and an advocate for One World Order and the freedom we have here and now will not be available in that world.

Hillary is a traitor, she committed Treason against the United States.  She left people to die in Benghazi and lied about it.  She used an unsecured server and Blackberry and lied about it for months.  She is a chronic liar. Remember when she was running for president in 2007-2008 and claimed, “I remember landing under sniper fire in Bosnia.”  This was proven a lie with video footage, all was peaceful.  When she and Slick Willie left the White House in 2001 they had taken $190,000 in valuables that were not their property, i.e., they stole the items. And, yet, you supported her for president.  Steph, Bron, why on Earth would you do that?  How could you do that?

Open your eyes and take a real look at what is happening.  The Oakland Warriors stated, “in lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion—the values that we embrace as an organization.”

Let us discuss what they want to celebrate: “equality, diversity and inclusion.”

What do you call a college campus that cancels speaking engagements by conservatives?  And this week they cancelled “Free Speech Week.”  Why did the Oakland Warriors or, better yet, Steph, not speak out against UC Berkeley for their blatant disregard and disrespect for the First Amendment?   Seems quite hypocritical to me.

These athletes could learn a few things by listening to two-time heavyweight champion and Olympic Gold Medalist George Foreman, who criticized people such as Kaepernick for kneeling during the National Anthem, and who said, “A lot of [Americans] died in war so that they could have that privilege.  We all came in the era where we were patriotic.  The greatest day of my life was when I put on the colors, representing the United States.”

Foreman added, “I love the United States, and I love the flag.”

Let me state, for the record, that I am a Patriot.  I am also a direct descendant of Chief White Hair of the Osage Indian Nation.  And, I am related to Patrick Henry and deeply believe in his words:  “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”  It is because of Henry, James Madison and a handful of others that we actually have the Bill of Rights because the US Constitution, as originally written, did not lay out individual rights.

And, even though our country may be flawed because of individual agendas by people who are suppressive and oppressive to others, not just minorities, it is still the best country in which to live and raise a family.

I am sorry, but if you disagree with that statement above, then you should move to whatever country it is you feel is better.  Period.

Peaceful protest is fine, but on a stage where you are paid millions per year to entertain, it is, in my humble opinion, totally inappropriate to disrespect the US Flag and the men and women of our military who have kept – and do keep – us free.

Constitution Day 2017

Gadsden Flag - Don't Tread On MeWith many of our rights and freedoms under assault at this time, it makes sense to honor our Founding Fathers for the work that they did over two centuries ago.

When they had experienced enough tyranny from King George III of England, when their pleas and requests were shunned or ignored, when the Brits ordered trade blockades, and more, much much more, they went to war and drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence, on July 4, 1776.  They did so knowing full well that it would mean losing everything if the Revolutionary War was lost.  But America prevailed.  It won its freedom.

They were quite learned men, many of them knew historically what had made for good and for bad governments, knowing full well that a good government was one that did not encroach upon the citizenry.  Yes, they haggled and argued and compromised.  But they never lost sight of the end result and that was the United States Constitution, formally signed exactly 230 years ago today, on September 17, 1787.

The document that our Founding Fathers created and signed was like no other ever devised, especially when the Bill of Rights was added on December 15, 1791.  Our freedom, as long as the US Constitution is followed, is guaranteed.

Signing_of_the_Constitution_of_the_United_StatesThere are those who question a document 200+ years old and how it can be relevant today.  There is an easy answer.  In the manner in which it was written.  There were no time-specific conditions, other than handling the then-current debt.  The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were created by forward-looking men, men who knew the world would change and provided us with something that could and would grow with us.

It is unfortunate, however, that we have allowed that precious document to be “interpreted” to mean what it does not say.  As one example, when the Courts decided that prayers could not be said in school those justices were violating our Constitution.  If there are some who do not wish to pray in school, that is fine.  But there is nothing unconstitutional about saying prayer in school.  Period.

Losing that portion of one of our rights should infuriate any Patriot because what follows is that there are other rights, other freedoms that get taken from us, gradually and (now) generally under the guise of “national security.”  We need to watch our present-day politicians, as they are not statesmen of 200 years  ago who carry on open discussion, and even arguments, to reach a consensus of what is right “for the people.”  No, politicians of today are bought and paid for by myriad individuals and concerns.

Forgive me as I have strayed from my original thought, thanking our Founding Fathers for their excellent work.  For their work should be admired as much as it should be followed.  Incredible documents outlining our rights, our freedoms, our liberty.

In our movie, In Search of Liberty, we educate all Americans, in a dramatic yet humorous manner, the basics of what exactly the US Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee us, i.e., “We the People.”  All those who have viewed it come away new information they did not know before and with a renewed sense of both pride and purpose as an American.

Independence National Historical Park – Philadelphia

Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a 55-acre area, located within the Old City and Society Hill neighborhoods, that preserves many historical sites associated with the country’s founding and the American Revolution.  It is also called “America’s most historic square mile” due to the number of landmarks within the area.

Independence HallAt the center of it all is Independence Hall, the site where both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were debated and subsequently adopted.  The hall was where the Second Continental Congress met, from 1775 to 1783.

Liberty BellDirectly across the street from Independence Hall is Liberty Bell Center, which houses the Liberty Bell. The bell had been in Independence Hall until the United States Bi-centennial in 1976, where it was displayed in the glass-enclosed Liberty Bell Pavilion and then moved to its current location in 2003.

Carpenters' HallAmong the many other historic buildings residing in the park are (in order, above and below): Carpenters’ Hall (where the First Continental Congress met in September-October 1774); the Second Bank of the United States (1817-1836); and an exact replica of Benjamin Franklin’s Library Company of Philadelphia building (1790-1887), now called Library Hall (1954).

Second Bank of the United StatesThe square mile park is easy to walk and almost all attractions are free, with some requiring timed admission passes. For those who prefer, there are horse-drawn carriages that provide tours.

Library Hall - PhiladelphiaFor history buffs, the Independence National Historical Park provides a more than ample amount of sites, documents and stories.
