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 …

Barack Obama, Chuck Hagel, and willing accomplices in Congress are doing their best to decimate America’s defenses, all in the name of promoting world peace, harmony, and justice. Here’s the opening of a chilling short story by Kirt Schlichter about one possible consequence.

Ironically, the blizzard of YJ-82X cruise missiles launched from the Chinese subs lying off the coast of Baja California crossed the beach directly over the …

Video: Benghazi: Judge Jeanine Pirro Declares the Case for Obama’s Impeachment

In her prosecutorial “Opening Statement” on the Benghazi atrocity and aftermath, Judge Jeanine Pirro indicts President Obama for dereliction of duty as Commander in Chief, violation of his oath of office, and active participation in defrauding the American people in the subsequent cover-up — the biggest since Watergate, she declares.

Strong stuff!

Video: Regulation without Representation is Tyranny – IRS Strikes Again

Check out this horror story of the IRS seizing $35,000 from a grocery store owner’s bank account without warning, warrant, or any due process whatsover.

How can the IRS do such a thing? Because Congress, that venerated body with the single-digit (6%) approval rating, gave the IRS that power a long time ago.

There was once a time when We the People might have trusted the IRS to use such a power with wisdom and restraint. No …

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.
(Sir Walter Scott, 1808)

Alas, poor Jay Carney is struggling to defend the indefensible when it comes to the White House cover-up of the cover-up of the Benghazi atrocity. Lying about prior lies is getting really confusing and frustrating for everyone.

Memo to Jay Carney —

Dear Jay:

To avoid a lot of confrontation and confusion, simply open your next press conference with the …

Video: Trey Gowdy, Benghazi Cover-Up, and Ben Rhodes’ Smoking-Gun Email

In his usual no-nonsense style, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) answers questions about the “smoking gun” email from Ben Rhodes that set up the official White-House-driven narrative on the Benghazi atrocity that killed four Americans, including our ambassador, Chris Stevens.

Gowdy says Rhodes’ goal was clearly to protect the President’s re-election chances in 2012, and (perhaps) Hillary’s election chances in 2016.

Ben Rhodes’ official title at the time was “Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications”. Based …

Video: Nullification vs Article V – Why Not Both? Why Not More?

Over the past year, a rift has deepened between two large conservative groups, both of whom are strong advocates for a Constitutionally limited federal government.

Both sides of this rift see our federal government as over-spending, over-borrowing, over-taxing, over-regulating, and over-reaching in general — well beyond Constitutional limits — all at the cost of individual freedom and economic opportunity.

Both sides decry the corruption of crony capitalism and the buying of votes through entitlement promises so …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Skewers Harry Reid for Lies, Abuse of Power, and Chutzpah

Judge Jeanine is back in full fury as she traces the Bundy ranch standoff back to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, his family, and his connections with the Chinese. She muses on how much she’d love to be a prosecutor again, interrogating Reid under oath.

Looking the camera straight in the eye, Judge Jeanine declares with a snarl: “Go ahead — lie to me, Harry — under oath!”

This video is from “Justice with Judge Jeanine”, April 26, 2014.

Perhaps Mr. Reid should …
