FCC Limbaugh1

Regulation without Representation is Tyranny! 

VIDEO: Rush Limbaugh, working with an article by Randolph J May from TheHill.com, presents the all-too-plausible consequences if the FCC’s 332-page developed-in-secret “Net Neutrality” regulation goes into effect.

Starting with the seemingly benign intention of “equality” for data transmission of all types, Limbaugh describes how easily it will lead to crony-capitalist “dispensations” from the rules for government-favored information sources and hobbling restrictions for everyone else.

Does this sound familiar? Does this sound like Obamacare with its …

Senator Ted Cruz is excellent in this Feb 15 interview with Ginny Thomas (video below).

In less than 30 minutes, Cruz and Ms Thomas cover the most important topics today in US foreign and domestic policies with a special emphasis on what Democrat pundit Pat Cadell calls the “Donor-Lobbyist-Establishment” class in both parties.

Cruz says that establishment Republicans betrayed the voters who gave the GOP their huge majority by deliberately using the lame-duck period to work with Harry Reid to pay off all the …

Video: Mark Levin and FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai discuss FCC Internet power grab

Obama and his merry band of bureaucrats are doing it again. Called “Obamacare for the Internet,” the FCC has developed in secret a 332-page bill to regulate and tax the Internet as a public utility.

Normally such a drastic regulatory power grab would be debated furiously for months in Congress and by the public. But that’s not how the Obama administration, the self-declared most open and transparent in history, actually works, does it?

Here’s an 8-minute discussion of the latest federal power grab …

Now and then I read an article so spot-on and well articulated that the room I’m in seems to resonate. That happened today when I read Derek Hunter’s “Dear World, We’re Sorry” at TownHall.com.

Here are a few “pull quotes”, and I recommend you real the whole thing at this link.

Dear World,

How are you? You don’t have to answer. I know. I’ve been reading the news. It’s awful. And I know you’re looking to …

Video: Judge Jeanine: Barack Obama defends Islam by shaming Christianity

President Obama is ‘okay’ with terrorism. He’s comfortable with it. He just doesn’t care much. So says Judge Jeanine Pirro in the video below. She lays out the case for her conclusions, and explains how he likely got that way.

Radical Islamists have been butchering, burning, and burying innocent people alive — today. They have vowed to do the same to us. If there were ever a time for a President to unite and inspire the American people, this is it.

So there is the president, standing at …

Video: Bishop EW Jackson to Obama: Close Your Mouth, Not Guantanamo!

President Obama has been emptying the Guantanamo Bay prison of terrorists, freeing them to murder again, on the grounds that Guantanamo is “recruitment tool” for the terrorists.

At the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast, Obama had to gall to compare today’s Islamist atrocities to Christian Crusades, 1000 years in the past.

In this short video, Bishop EW Jackson strikes back with:

If you don’t want to give terrorists a recruitment tool, instead of closing Guantanamo Bay, frankly, sir, you ought to …

Video: Which side are you on?

Here’s a short, simple, powerful video narrated by millennials to challenge their fellow millennials.

In just one minute, hear pretty much every social issue the self-righteous Left purports to care about in the context of today’s anti-Israel propaganda.

If this video doesn’t give the self-deceptive Left at least a brief spasm of cognitive dissonance, nothing will.
