Newt 2

Hillary Clinton’s latest ad touts her “calm, steady, experienced leadership” to be our next president.

Newt Gingrich laughingly calls that claim “hysterical” in this one-minute excerpt from his Fox News Sunday (June 26) interview,

When Chris Wallace’s offers a weak rebuttal, suggesting that surely some experience is better than none, an incredulous Newt asks “… the experience of failure?” Newt then offers a bullet list of just a few of her failures.

ABC News1

Wow! James O’Keefe of Veritas couldn’t have done this any better.

Of course it’s no surprise to see Hillary Clinton’s corruption exposed — in this case it’s just one instance of pay-for-play, quid pro quo abuse of her position as United States Secretary of State.

What’s surprising is that this is ABC NEWS, normally a stalwart card-carrying member of the Democrat-servile media. Even the public domain YouTube video below comes from their …

Video: Trump Appeals to Angry Sanders Voters and Sulking Conservatives

If you’re a disappointed Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or other conservative-candidate supporter like me, watch the one-minute appeal below in which Donald Trump pledges to earn your support.

It’s not much (yet), but it’s a start.

Perhaps more important for November, hear also his appeal to Bernie Sanders supporters.

If Trump can avoid the PC “gotcha” land mines that the Leftist media have been scattering in his path like so many rose petals, we could be witnessing an historic shift in the two parties. 


Because at its core, the modern Democrat party …

Video: Donald Trump goes 1-on-1 with Judge Jeanine Pirro

Judge Jeanine Pirro has endorsed Donald Trump and goes 1-on-1 with him in the three-part interview below.

In Part 1 (below), Trump pulls no punches when it comes to the media’s “dishonest” treatment of him, especially the Washington Post and New York Times.


In Part 2 (below), Trump talks about the fuss over Trump University, and nails Obama for his “failed presidency”. He slams Hillary Clinton’s “clueless” foreign policy and ridicules Bernie Sanders & Elizabeth Warren. Pirro asks him about his direct …

Sullen and depressed, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski of “Morning Joe”, along with Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd of NBC News, can no longer explain away Hillary Clinton’s serial dishonesty.

Says long-time Hillary apologist Mika: “It feels like she’s lying straight out.”

And this sad realization is only over Hillary’s “damned emails” and her private email server. The entire matter of her arrogant, above-the-law management of the Clinton foundation has yet to fully explored. But that too may be about …

Hear Donald Trump at the NRA Convention! He accepted the NRA’s endorsement and proceeded to outline his campaign against Hillary.

The video below is a shortened version of his remarks, focusing on his case against Hillary. As usual he ignores political correctness and hits her on all her weakest positions as well as her character, using his favorite nickname “Crooked Hillary”.

Good grief! Are we all living in some sort of alternate universe? How could a reformed bum like Bernie Sanders ever have been seriously considered for any elected public office?

Check out these facts from his wretched biography as reported by Investors Business Daily (emphasis added):

His family [did manage] to send him to the University of Chicago. Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to …

Video: Gingrich to Conservatives: Don’t Despair re Donald Trump

I’m allowing myself at least three days to sulk over the departure of Ted Cruz from the campaign.

Conservatives whose core tenets are Constitutionally limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility have every reason to despair. Donald Trump doesn’t even talk about those themes.

However —

When I emerge from my funk, I may take hope along the lines that Newt Gingrich describes in the short interview excerpt below, spoken Tuesday evening, May 3.

What Trump says and does in the next couple weeks, and …

Video: Viral Video – Crowder Destroys Leftist Disruptors at UMass

Half-a-million views in less than 24 hours. Not bad!

In this video, rapidly going viral, Steven Crowder shreds leftist social justice “protestors” who try to disrupt Crowder’s seriocomic discussion of Political Correctness at UMass.

Like so many once classic-liberal bastions of tolerance and free speech, UMass now appears to be just another cookie-cutter leftist indoctrination center, funded by taxpayer dollars and massive student debt. UMass alumni must be so proud.

This event was called “The Triggering: Has Political Correctness Gone Too Far?”. Humor, satire, and parody are great ways to counter-attack …

Dozens of books will be surely written about the Obama legacy. Researchers and authors may well start with the president’s own narrative preview, delivered in under eight minutes on April 23, 2016 (video below).

The president’s off-the-cuff summary is partly self-congratulatory and partly an avuncular pep talk to the young British activists in his audience.

The things of which he says he’s most proud.

Every person having access to affordable health care

Saving the world economy from a great depression

Getting nuclear weapons out of Iran without going to war

Wall Street reforms to prevent future …
