Video: Yale Wishnick Answers Key Questions about Article V Convention of States

Anticipating the kind of runaway federal government that we have today, our Constitution’s Framers, led by George Mason and James Madison, wrote into the Constitution an explicit remedy, to be driven by We the People, through our state legislatures, to halt a future federal Leviathan. Clearly its time has come.

Article V of the US Constitution explicitly empowers our state legislatures to amend the Constitution themselves, without the permission or approval of Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court. In …

Video: Right vs. Left: Gov Scott Walker battles Gov Peter Shumlin

I like Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. He is a proven executive and an unflappable manager in a crisis. His record shows he is a solid conservative when it comes to taxation and deficits. That’s more than most other 2016 potential presidential candidates could claim.

In the video below, from Feb 23, Walker takes on Leftist Governor Peter Shumlin of Vermont over Obamacare and entitlements. Shumlin dutifully spouts demonstrably false Democrat talking points about GOP governors, and …

Video: “Obamacare-Care” – A Viral Video from Jimmy Kimmel

For a thin-skinned, narcissistic person like Barack Obama, this kind of mockery must be hell, coming from his erstwhile buddies on late-night TV. In this video, after Kimmel’s 30-second intro there follows 60 seconds of great satire (at least I hope it’s satire!).

Late-night comics like Kimmel can be surprisingly influential. Once they declare that the emperor has no clothes, millions of others feel safe to say so too …

Video: Dream-Team Smackdown! Pirro & Gowdy Trash Feckless Congress

Are you tired of wishy-washy commentary? For telling it “like it is”, it’s hard to beat Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

Here they are together, in a dream-team classic, as Pirro encourages Gowdy’s refreshing take-no-prisoners, no-BS style. Together they trash our feckless Congress for meekly standing by as Barack Obama walks all over the US Constitution.

Memo to Fox News: Please keep bringing this pair back for more. The times demand exactly this kind of commentary!

This excerpt is …

Video: U.S. Constitution Article V, Runaway Conventions, and Prof. Rob Natelson

The US Constitution’s Article V Process 2 is the single most powerful weapon that We the People have to rein in the overspending, over-regulating, and overbearing federal government in Washington.

Article V allows state legislatures to amend the US Constitution themselves, with no vote or veto power by Congress, the President, or even the Supreme Court. It was included in the original Constitution at the insistence of Framers George Mason and James Madison, who foresaw the day when the federal government might become …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Shreds Barack Obama for Lawlessness and Hypocrisy

In another classic “Opening Statement”, Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro destroys Barack Obama for his blatant and brazen hypocrisy and outright lawless behavior.

Says the judge:

We have a president who signs laws he doesn’t intend to follow, who changes laws that Congress legally enacts, and then uses executive orders somewhere in the middle to do whatever the hell he pleases. 

And this week he requires companies to swear to the IRS that they are not hiring or firing employees based on the …

Video: Bill Whittle, Virtual President of the United States, on Education

Speaking as the Virtual President of the United States, author and speaker Bill Whittle delivers common-sense, rock-solid Conservative answers to the problems we face today – from the floor of the House of Representatives, the White House Briefing Room, and the Oval Office.

Here is another in the series — this one dealing with education.

How would you like a President who approaches problems and talks about them the way that Virtual President Bill Whittle does?

Do your remember the famous 2009 picture (at right) of a grinning Barack Obama, with white-coated minions basking in his aura as if he were a saintly messiah. Where are those (alleged) doctors now? What do they think now?

Well, just read the letter below of a real doctor, Kristin Held, to Aetna insurance, telling them in no uncertain terms she will not practice medicine by the dictates of Washington’s bureaucrats. Period.

[To Aetna Insurance, January 30, ...

Video: Trey Gowdy Demolishes Obama and Obamacare in 5 Minutes!

President Obama and Obamacare’s supporters are desperate. They’re now pushing for a 3-year delay in the start of the law in order to get past the next two elections. Remember how Ted Cruz and conservatives only wanted a one-year delay?

Isn’t it odd that last fall Obama was so anxious to start up Obamacare by October 1 that he locked WWII vets out of their own memorial to bully the Senate into opposing the proposed 1-year delay? Do you …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro, Benghazi, Obama, O’Reilly – Feb 8, 2014

In another blistering “Opening Statement”, Judge Jeanine Pirro calls out Barack Obama for his transparent lies and contradictions about Benghazi, as voiced during his interview by Bill O’Reilly on Super Bowl Sunday.

There was a joke among the old Soviet citizens that “The future is known. It’s the past that keeps changing.” It may be time to dust that off and start using it to describe the Obama administration’s flailing attempts to cover up its gross negligence in Benghazi.

This …
