The story of the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, and Thanksgiving is widely taught in all our schools. What is seldom taught, however, is what those Pilgrims learned, at great pain, about Collectivism versus Free Markets.

This story stands as perhaps the clearest and starkest-ever before-and-after comparison between those two rival systems for human interaction and governance.

Most of us know how the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in November, 1620, and how they …

Video: Judge Jeanine Ravages Obama for Lawless Immigration Orders

Comparing him at one point to Tony Soprano, Judge Jeanine Pirro rips Obama from stem to stern for his outlandish and lawless immigration “orders.”

On November 20, 2014, the Scottsdale, AZ Tea Party hosted a discussion/debate on the merits of using the US Constitution’s Article V (Clause 2) amendments convention process to rein in runaway spending, borrowing, and regulation in Washington.

Nick Dranias, who spoke first, is President and Executive Director, Compact for America Educational Foundation, Inc. Dranias argued FOR using the Article V process, and sketched briefly his organization’s approach …

In just six years, Barack Obama has gone from The One to Personna Non Grata — on ABC, CBS, Fox, and even NBC.

The Hill confirms that none of these networks will carry President Obama’s speech on executive-order amnesty. 

How the mighty has fallen. Granted it’s been coming in bits and pieces. But now, thanks to people like Jonathan Gruber, the curtain has been yanked aside. There is no wizard back there, just a …

Forget about Carmen Sandiego, WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CHUCK SCHUMER?

Months before the election (spring, 2014), Sen. Chuck Schumer was solemnly warning the Republican party to either pass the infamous senate immigration bill or lose the House and Senate in 2014. He was supremely confident. Some of the GOP’s old bulls even agreed with him.

You may recall Rep. Trey Gowdy sarcastically saying that he was moved almost to the “point of …

Video: VIDEO: Watch Jonathan Gruber try to comfort a “stupid” American voter

This hard-working but “stupid” American voter trusted Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and (implicitly) Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare Architect. Now the voter has lost his doctor, he’s lost his health plan, and he’s seen his premiums and deductible both skyrocket.

Just look at his face. He’s disappointed. He’s unhappy. He feels betrayed.

In this 9-second video satire, Gruber tries to comfort the voter as only an arrogant, condescending, faculty-lounge academic knows how.

Hat tip to National Lampoon’s 1978 classic “Animal House” for this video clip.

And a hat tip to the …

Video: Judge Jeanine: Are You Stupid? Obamacare’s Jonathan Gruber Says You Are

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber says what so many of thought all along — Big Government politicians think we’re stupid enough to swallow the lies they told about Obamacare. And now Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber is giddy with glee over the fraud he helped perpetrate. He uses us, We the People, as the target of his smug, elitist, condescending laugh lines in front of fellow elitists who join him in laughter.

In this video, Judge Jeanine takes the whole bunch to task, pointing out that anywhere else, …

Video: Harry Reid and Jonathan Gruber – Partners in Colossal National Fraud

In the 2009 video below, calling MIT’s Jonathan Gruber “one of the most respected economists in the world,” Harry Reid confidently predicts that thanks to  Obamacare, 93% of Americans will see reductions in health care premiums of up to 60%, and 30 million more people will be covered, all while reducing the deficit.

Say what!?

In 2009, that all sounded too good to be true, no? Well, it was. And it still is. And it keeps getting worse with each passing year.

We now know that Obamacare’s promises …

On Election Day, November 4, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews got smacked across the face by the semi-frozen flounder of reality. And on November 5, he spent the day on MSNBC looking as if his dog had just died as he trashed President Obama for listening only to his sychophants.

Then, on November 7, he was struck by a bout of uncharacteristically insightful reasoning about the president’s inability to even think outside …

Video: Election 2014: Judge Jeanine Pirro Spikes the Ball !

Judge Jeanine Pirro celebrates the results of the 2014 election, reveling in the historic reversals of Democrat fortunes across the country, as well as the rejection and repudiation of the president’s make-believe “war on women”. The endless repetition of that lie simply didn’t work for the Democrats. Bummer. What do they do when that tactic fails?

Astonishingly, the president seems to be claiming a mandate based on the 2/3 of voters who didn’t bother to show up at the polls! This is delusional. …
