Video: Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Dave Brat on Brat’s Surprise Victory over Eric Cantor

Here are two video excerpts from the June 10, 2014, Sean Hannity show covering Professor Dave Brat’s surprise primary victory over US House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA).

Why did Brat win despite being outspent over 20-to-1? Levin’s short answer is this:

People are sick and tired of centralized government and the impact it has on their life.

What issues did Dave Brat run on? His reply (paraphrased):

I ran on a single 20-minute stump speech on free markets, Constitutional issues, rule-of-law, and …

Video: Buck Sexton & Jeanine Pirro – Your Guide to the Gitmo-Five Killers

Judge Jeanine Pirro and Former CIA Officer Buck Sexton review the “rap sheet” on each of the five Guantanamo prisoners released by order of Barack Obama in exchange for the alleged deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

If you were hoping that these Taliban leaders had been rehabilitated after their years at Gitmo, don’t count on it. They’re not going back to school, earning their MBA, and becoming hedge fund managers.

Au contraire! Sexton says the “Gitmo-5″ are vile killers who will surely kill again, …

Video: Judge Jeanine: Bowe Bergdahl Fiasco Cries Out for Obama’s Impeachment

Judge Jeanine Pirro again calls for Obama’s impeachment — this time for the astonishing exchange of one (alleged) US deserter for five top Taliban leaders held at Guantanamo Bay. Nostrils flaring, she drives home one point after another, like nails in a coffin, as she builds her case.

Obama didn’t simply release these murderers, says Judge Jeanine, he unleashed them. Ominously, the judge warns that the blood of their future victims will be on Barack Obama’s hands.

This excerpt is from Fox News’ Justice …

Since 1872, America has been the unchallenged Number One Economy in the world. China is set to pass us by at some point this year.

In addition, as pointed out by Wayne Allen Root,

For the first time in history businesses are being destroyed faster than they are starting.
There are now more food stamp recipients than the number of women working full-time.
The average full-time male employee earns less (adjusted for inflation) than in the ‘70s.
There are now 70% …

Video: VA Scandal: Judge Jeanine Pirro accuses Eric Shinseki of negligent homicide

Mincing no words, Judge Jeanine accuses Eric Shinseki of negligent homicide in the mismanagement of Veterans Administration healthcare. There’s plenty of ire for Eric Holder and Barack Obama as well.

(Former) General Shinseki may be a fine man, a capable general, and a decorated war veteran. But he is plainly a poor manager of an enterprise as large and critical as the Veterans Administration. He is a political appointee in a role where he lacks the skills and temperament for this …

Video: HashTag ‘BringBackOurBalls': Sean Hannity & Mark Steyn on Nigerian School Girls Rescue

Strking a nerve, Mark Steyn has ridiculed the social media campaign #BringBackOurGirls with his own mock campaign #BringBackOurBalls.

On the Fox News show Hannity, May 13, 2014, Steyn calls on Western powers to use special forces to recover the girls and kill the kidnappers. Period.

Using historical references, Steyn argues that this is the only approach that will actually get the girls back and send the right message to the Islamist extremists bad guys and the rest of the world. Steyn is …

Video: Mark Levin Assails GOP Bosses, Praises Tea Party Conservatives

In this May 8, 2014, excerpt from Mark Levin’s radio show, he assails GOP establishment leaders like McConnell, Boehner, and Rove, reminding us all:

how they have lost election after election with their moderate candidates,
how they have attacked Tea Party conservatives,
how they have actually blamed conservatives for the GOP’s minority status in the Senate,
how they have forgotten how they won the House in 2010.

The bottom line, says Levin, is that the GOP party bosses want to be in the majority ONLY …

The Tea Party Movement was founded on three explicit conservative principles:

Limited Government
Free Markets
Fiscal Responsibility

These are supposed to be the principles of the GOP as well, but for the last half-century, aside from occasional pauses, Big-Government Republicans have been moving in the opposite direction on all three principles. They have yielded again and again to ever-larger government, ever-heavier regulation from Washington, and ever-expanding spending and borrowing, seemingly without limit.

Naturally, Big Government Republicans would like to defeat the Democrats …
