A prior article introduced the March 7, 2014, Thomas-Jefferson-Center-sponsored debate among five leading Arizona conservatives on the subject of the US Constitution’s Article V.  It also offered, via YouTube, the audio from the opening statements of all five panelists.

This article, the second in a series of three, presents the sound tracks from the intra-panel debate that followed the opening statements and the audience questions.

This is a high-quality …

The YouTube audio tracks below comprise the first part of the best discussion/debate I’ve ever heard on the controversial state-legislature-driven Article V initiatives to amend the US Constitution. In this first of three articles on WesternFreePress.com, Arizona leaders of Article V and Nullification initiatives present opening statements on their positions, each lasting about 10 minutes.

It still comes as a surprise to most Americans to learn that state legislatures can amend the US Constitution …

Video: Daniel Hannan – The Global Responsibilities of Being American

We know the core tenets of the Conservative / Tea Party movement are Constitutionally limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility.  We also know that the success of the movement is critical to the rescue of our children and grandchildren, who are rapidly being sold into debt bondage by the lifetime legislative-class elites in Washington.

As if we needed any more motivation, watch the CPAC 2014 video below in which

Video: Feisty Judge Jeanine Pirro Calls Out Obama for Fraudulent Betrayal of America

A feisty Judge Jeanine pulls no punches as she declares Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election to have been fraudulently obtained.

EXHIBIT 1 – the Benghazi atrocity and cover-up. Obama & his sycophants knowingly and deliberately lied to win an election.

And since winning that election, says the judge, Obama has violated his oath to defend America by doing all he can to weaken us internationally, losing out to a KGB tough guy at every turn.

In summary, says Judge Pirro, the Obama contract with …

Video: Global Warming: The ‘New York Times’ Sells Us Out – Again

It is truly absurd that the New York Times still has the motto “All the News That’s Fit to Print” at the top left corner of every edition. It should have been changed long ago to “The News We Choose that Fits Our Views”.

On February 25, 2014, Patrick Moore, PhD, testified before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Subcommittee on Oversight.  His full testimony can be …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Skewers Obama’s Feckless Foreign Policy

In the video below, Judge Jeanine Pirro, the Fox News angelic assassin, rips into Obama and his miserable, flailing foreign policy. Other than “lead from behind,” no one seems able to articulate what that policy has ever been.

In the meantime, John Kerry keeps trying to sound like a wise statesman as he uncorks one toothless banality after another.  And the people Judge Jeanine calls “Clueless Clapper”  and “Hapless Hagel” fumble and bumble their way …

Video: Sean Hannity, Ted Cruz, Thomas Sowell: Do We Fight or Flee?

This 7-minute video, featuring Ted Cruz, Sean Hannity, and Thomas Sowell, directly addresses the core “fight or flight” issue in GOP vs Conservative tactics and strategy.

Citing George Washington’s strategy against the British, Sowell says “we cannot fight every battle”. Instead we should “flee”, as Washington did, until we see a battle we can, and then we win it.

Ted Cruz counters that of course we don’t fight every battle, but we need to fight some battles, and …

Video: Congressional Malfeasance on Benghazi – Panel Condemns Failed House Leadership

In the video below, two Democrats and one Republican denounce the House leadership for their fecklessness, timidity, and procrastination surrounding the Benghazi atrocity and cover-up.  I’ve never heard the case stated so strongly and succinctly.

Says former Congressman John Leboutillier (R-NY) —

[The] 180 members of the House Republican Conference … need to tell Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy: You’ve got one day to appoint a [select] committee, and if you will not do it we need to throw all of you out of the leadership.
