Video: Judge Jeanine: Obama & Kerry Flail as Radicals Rampage

Judge Jeanine Pirro lambastes Barack Obama and John Kerry for their feckless response to radical Islamist murders all across the globe. As the bodies pile up, Obama and Kerry respond by releasing dangerous Islamists from Gitmo and sending a 1970’s-era guitar player to Paris.

After excoriating Obama and Kerry, the judge offers a few strategic options that she believes will produce better results than another hand-wringing hashtag campaign.

Here are two short video clips of two potential 2016 candidates – Jeb Bush and Elizabeth Warren. I know it’s tough to put the substance of their remarks aside, but just compare the locution, passion, rhythm and enthusiasm of these two potential candidates.

Question: How long did you stick with the Jeb Bush video before switching over to Elizabeth Warren’s?

Is there any way on earth for a candidate like Jeb Bush to win an election campaign against an Elizabeth Warren? Unless …

I’ve had a recurring nightmare about the 2016 GOP presidential primaries. It goes like this —

After many months of the usual sound and fury, the GOP primaries come down to a single big-name, big-government Moderate battling a single Conservative who is exhausted and broke from fighting with a dozen other conservatives and, in the process, has alienated supporters of all the other conservatives.
The Moderate, anointed by the media as “most electable” and buoyed by GOP donor-class mountains of cash, then destroys the Conservative with …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro: We Need to Kill Them !

Mincing no words, Judge Jeanine Pirro calls for an all-out war against Islamist radicals by the US, our allies, and especially Muslims themselves. From Fox News Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro, Jan 10, 2015.

Stalwart 25

Here are the 25 GOP House Representatives who dared to represent their constituents in the election of Speaker for the 114th Congress on January 6, 2015.

Watch for the GOP “leadership” to take revenge on these 25 stalwarts, stripping them of committee memberships and refusing to assign them significant new ones. Let’s give them our thanks and respect today and all the support we can in the future as the other party of Big Government, the …

Video: Thomas Sowell’s Wisdom – an Antidote for Al Sharpton’s Poison


In one of his best-ever interviews (above), Thomas Sowell talks about:

His personal history — he once tried out for the Brooklyn Dodgers!
Marxism — he was once a Marxist himself
Thomas Piketty — the new darling of the Left, including Paul Krugman
The devastation wrought by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank — govt-forced loans to people who couldn’t afford them
The politicians who cultivate major crises — and profit from them
The Obamacare disaster — yielding …

Video: Hillary Clinton’s 1993 Healthcare Plan Makes ObamaCare Look Tame!

Hat tip to Betsy McCaughey (pronounced like “McCoy”), who actually reads giant bills like the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) and explains its provisions to us mere mortals. She’s done this many times over the past several years, mostly on Fox News.

With Hillary Clinton’s 2016 candidacy looming, McCaughey has done it again. She has read in detail the 1993 “HillaryCare” plan that First Lady Hillary Clinton attempted to pass while her husband was president. Thank goodness that legislation failed because its provisions were …

Video: Liberal Media Bias – Are Fish Aware of the Water They Swim In?

Well, there they go again. While introducing the Dec 28, 2014, NBC Meet the Press panel, Chuck Todd gives everyone’s name and affiliation UNTIL he gets to Ken Blackwell, whom he explicitly introduces as a “Conservative Columnist.”

Why?  Why must Todd qualify Blackwell with the descriptor “Conservative”??

Eugene Robinson, also on the panel, is a mawkishly liberal writer and pundit if there ever were one. He is a Washington Post columnist and a regular on MSNBC. Yet Todd does not introduce him as “Liberal Columnist Eugene Robinson.”

Why …

Video: Election 2016: Newt Gingrich Shows How to Run Against the Elite Media

The Left-wing bias of the elite mainstream media is now so well established that it has become a cliché to even mention it. Any conservatives who run for president in 2016 will have to run against that media just as hard as they do against their Big Government political opponents.

So what’s a conservative candidate to do?

Bowing and scraping before the Democrat-servile NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, New York Times, and Washington Post won’t work. It’s a sure-fire way to lose the respect of conservative voters, leaving them at home on election day …

Oath Violators2

You may wish to print, cut out, and save the handy wallet card above. This is the list of 20 GOP Senators who voted against the point of order raised by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) regarding President Obama’s executive order on immigration (aka “amnesty”) on Dec 13, 2014 at 9:34 pm, a defining moment for this “GOP-20.”
