Video: Best Defense Yet of Pam Geller and Free Speech in Garland, TX

This Bill Whittle video is especially for the craven Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham, Judge Napolitano, and other Fox News headliners who attacked Pam Geller for stepping forward for free speech with her “Draw Muhammad” conference in Garland, Texas.

Those three Fox icons, and many more of their colleagues, should have known better. I don’t include Juan Williams and other Fox Leftists because probably none of them does know any better.

But to Williams and the entire Left, I would say (paraphrasing Bill Whittle), those ISIS terrorists didn’t come gunning for …

Video: Re Pam Geller, Megyn Kelly and Bill Maher vanquish Bill O’Reilly

In the video clip below, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly scores another bullseye.

Kelly correctly identifies the core issue behind the Pam Geller “draw Muhammad” controversy. She sweeps aside the self-righteous moralizing of Fox pundits like Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingraham, and Judge Napolitano. All three chose to assail Pam Geller as a provocateur rather than praise her as a brave free-speech advocate.

 

Shame on you, Bill O’Reilly. You actually put mere “offensiveness-avoidance” ahead of free-speech criticism of murderous intolerance? Please slow down and check your moral compass more carefully next time.

If followers of Islam …

Video: Judge Jeanine: Hillary Clinton is a Global-Scale Influence Peddlar

In the video below, Judge Jeanine Pirro savages Hillary Clinton for using her office to enrich herself and her husband by peddling her influence for cash payments to her husband and to their foundation.

The flow of the money and timing of her decisions are all a prosecutor needs, says the Judge. A jury can and often does infer guilt from such evidence. While an explicit quid pro quo would be sufficient to prove guilt, it is not necessary. Consider for example the case of Bob …

Left-wing environmental extremists have had their way in California for decades, no doubt giving them their usual warm fuzzy feeling of unearned moral superiority. Sadly, they’ve left Californians vulnerable to drought, destroying livelihoods and lives in the Sunshine State. And this may only be the beginning.

From Victor Davis-Hanson, in City Journal (emphasis added):

In the 1970s, coastal elites squelched California’s near-century-long commitment to building dams, reservoirs, and canals, even as the Golden State’s population ballooned. …

Capture

Sen. Marco Rubio’s campaign announcement was packed with great common-sense one-liners. Among them was this simple but powerful observation:

We must change the decisions [Washington is] making by changing the people who are making them.

Amen to that, Senator. But how do we make it happen? In Arizona, we’ve certainly tried to “elect better people” — namely, conservative representatives and senators who are true to the Constitution. And we’ve succeeded with a few. Reps. Schweikert, Salmon, and …

Video: Trevor Loudon – A Coalition Strategy for Conservative Victory in 2016

Trevor Loudon is a self-described libertarian activist and political researcher from Christchurch, New Zealand. He loves America for saving his country from the scourge of Japanese imperialism in World War II, and he is fearful for his country’s future if today’s America falls prey to the socialists, progressives, and 1960’s-inspired radical Leftists now within our government. He has done extensive research on Leftists in our government, by name, in the two volumes he has authored (see

Video: Judge Jeanine Savages Hillary Clinton’s Character for Laughing about Rape

Character is supposed to matter in a president. In the video below, Judge Jeanine Pirro offers just one piece of evidence on how vile Hillary Clinton’s character really is. In the recording, Hillary is laughing about her (guilty) client’s ability to pass a lie detector test after brutally raping a 6th-grader.

Include this in her long list of scandals and embarrassments. Is Hillary Clinton the kind of person we want as our president? Is she really the best that the Democrats can …

Video: Judge Jeanine Blows away Hillary’s Email Excuses as Pure BS

Judge Jeanine Pirro cuts through Hillary’s preposterous excuses for destroying key emails that might have implicated her in criminal activity while Secretary of State.

Legal definition of spoliation: 

The spoliation of evidence is the intentional, reckless, or negligent withholding, hiding, altering, or destroying of evidence relevant to a legal proceeding.

Is Hillary guilty of spoliation of evidence?

Cut-government-spending1

By: David Coughlin (dscough@yahoo.com)

The size of the federal government has exploded over the last century. The legislative and judicial branches of government have grown to serve the increased number of states and its growing population. The size and scope of the executive branch has grown to reflect an expanded role of the federal government over the last 100 years. Apparently the staffing of fourteen separate Cabinet Departments were not enough to manage the current executive branch, so Barack …

Astonishingly, Harry Reid admitted on CNN that he lied in 2012 about having knowledge that Mitt Romney had not paid his taxes. He made the whole thing up. There was no “anonymous source” unless it was Reid himself.

Even more astonishing than the admission is his attitude. When CNN’s Dana Bash asked if he had any regrets about lying, he smirked and shrugged, saying “Romney didn’t win, did he?”.

Good grief, Harry. You were the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, and …
