Video: From Un-Affordable to Un-Available – Obamcare’s Epic Fail

We were told it would get better over time, but it’s getting worse — much worse. The “Affordable” Care Act has already been nicknamed the “Un-Affordable” Care Act because of skyrocketing premiums. Now it could also be called the “Un-Available” Care Act because the Obamacare marketplace is shut down until January 1, 2015.

Here’s a 3-minute summary of the situation:

Is this what Obama, Pelosi, and Reid had in mind?  The law they still like to brag about is hurting people. Real …

Obama sycophants and apologists are fond of telling us how health insurance premium increases have moderated, and in some cases actually declined, since the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) was passed.

Apparently the key word there is “passed” — not “activated”.

What’s happened since activation last October? And what’s happened now that real money is being paid into ACA plans? See for yourself in the graphs below, from a

Video: Catherine Engelbrecht, Friend to Freedom, Enemy of Big Government

Catherine Engelbrecht dared to speak up about the integrity of the electoral system. She didn’t just worry about it, write about it, or complain about it. She founded and organized True The Vote, recruited volunteers to research voter data bases, and trained volunteer poll watchers in both parties to monitor the process.

Ms Engelbrecht is a citizen, in the very best sense of the word, pro-individual freedom, …

Video: Trey Gowdy Assails Congressman Who Whines about Being Underpaid

Does Rep. Jim Moran (VA8, D) have an attitude problem?

Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC4, R) thinks so after hearing Moran complain that a Congressman’s $174,000 per year compensation is not enough “to live decently” in Washington.

Gowdy compares Moran’s salary to that of Gowdy’s wife (a teacher), his sheriff, firefighters, and other public servants. The comparison does not speak well for Moran or any other Congressman who thinks as Moran does.

What do you think of Rep. Gowdy’s down-home, plain-spoken, sharp-tongued style? I …

Video: ‘Building the Machine’ – An Indictment of Common Core

On March 31, 2014, the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) released a documentary titled Building the Machine. This is a professionally produced documentary-style film that examines the controversial Common Core State Standards and their predicted impact on the American education system and our children.

This documentary is overwhelmingly negative about Common Core or any other centrally planned, one-size-fits-all education standard, especially when …

vote twice

Attorney General Eric Holder is already infamous for declaring that there is no evidence of fraud in US elections.  And when confronted with the evidence that others put before him, Holder ignores it, buries it, declares it “a stunt“, and/or condemns it as “vote suppression.”

Meanwhile, Holder’s cohorts in the Obama administration and Democrat …

Video: Rep. David Schweikert, AZ CD6, Clears Paths for Small Businesses

After every financial crisis, Big Government Democrats and Republicans delight in adding ponderous new regulations to our economy. Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley, new EPA rules, yada, yada, yada. The rules and regulations keep piling up, seemingly without limit, chilling and choking off new, small business formation.

Rep. David Schweikert (Arizona CD-6) is one of a handful in Congress who are actually pushing back, clearing paths for new, small-business formation and growth. The video below contains a 10-minute interview with David, highlighting some of …

Video: The Article V Initiatives: A View from Congress – Rep. David Schweikert, R-AZ 6

Our Constitution’s Framers, especially George Mason and James Madison, presciently foresaw the day when we might have an over-taxing, over-borrowing, over-spending, over-regulating, and over-bearing federal government.

Wisely, the Framers included in Article V a method by which our state legislatures could amend the US Constitution without the permission or approval of Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court. Article V assigns Congress no more than an administrative obligation, and the President and Supreme Court are assigned no role at all — our state …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro to Obama: Putin Has Been Bitch-Slapping You!

Mediterranean bombshell Judge Jeanine Pirro is back, is in full heat, castigating Obama for his laughable posturing about “strength,” “weakness,” and “the wrong side of history.”  Says Judge Jeanine:

Ronald Reagan was a strong president. He ended the cold war. You come in and take down the missile defense system in Eastern Europe with nothing in return. Why are you doing this? Do you even know who our enemies are? Do you know that your obligation is to protect us and …

Video: David Horowitz Destroys Democrats & Obama, Admonishes Republicans and Tea Party

The question:  The Republican Party and the Tea Party Movement — Can This Marriage Survive?

The short answer by David Horowitz is: It had better!

In this 18-minute presentation, Horowitz begins by nailing Obama for what he is — a “lifelong anti-American radical,” “compulsive liar,” and “human wrecking ball,” causing more damage to American principles than anyone could have imagined in January, 2009. And the Democrat Party has moved so …
