Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro: A Grab-Bag of Obama’s Incompetence 9.21.13

Judge Jeanine, with her Sophia-Loren-like good looks, eviscerates Obama with another sharp-tongued litany of his incompetent bungling.

This week’s edition (Sept 21, 2013) begins with Obama’s absurd celebration of the 5th anniversary of a financial crisis and his gauche treatment of the Navy Yard shooting as intro to a divisive Republican-bashing speech. Does this man have no advisers to help him with develop a sense of decorum? Are they afraid to advise him?

This edition also includes an astonishing attempt by Nancy …

Video: Video: House Laterals the Ball to Senate on Obamacare Defunding

Video (7 minutes): Following the vote to continue government funding through December 15, accompanied by defunding of Obamacare, the House Majority Leadership met with fellow Republicans in the Rayburn Room for short speeches, accompanied by rousing applause.

At this rally, the leaders (Reps Rogers, McCarthy, Cantor, Boehner) did a “lateral” to the Senate, calling on US Senators to join in voting for the bill.  Eric Cantor calls out specific Democrat Senators by name to vote with the people rather than Harry …

Video: VIDEO: Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Sean Hannity on Delay/Defund Obamacare

On Sept 18, House Speaker John Boehner surprised conservatives (pleasantly) by announcing that a Sept 20 vote would be held on a Continuing Resolution (CR) that would halt all funding for Obamacare but fully fund everything else in the federal leviathan — that is, all 479 federal agencies and departments would take no new cuts.

In the video clip below, Sean Hannity discusses this initiative with its …

Better late than never, John Boehner appears to have acquiesced to some variation of the Tom Graves / Ted Cruz / Mike Lee approach to defunding Obamacare.

That is:

Offer a CR to fund everything except Obamacare — the whole enchilada — all 479 Federal agencies, no matter how duplicative and wasteful — just not Obamacare.  Presumably this would be effective for one year until the next CR …

Video: Mark Levin and Tom Graves on the Initiative to Delay/Defund Obamacare

John Boehner and the House GOP have both the authority and the majority needed to defund Obamacare.

Their authority comes from the US Constitution. Their majority comes from Tea-Party-driven victories in 2010 and 2012. Will they use what’s been given to them?

Sadly, Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and other GOP “leadership” seem ready to wimp out, wasting both their authority and majority in what may be the last clear chance to kill the massively unpopular,

According to Mail Online, a UK website, an about-to-be-issued UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report has some really bad news for climate hysterics and all of those who worship at the altar of UN Global Government, at the feet of AlGore, or both.

In brief:   It.  Isn’t.  Happening.

According to the UK Mail, speaking of the IPCC:

[IPCC recognises] the global warming ‘pause’ …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Trashes Barack Obama as Feckless and Inept on Syria

Comparing Obama to the direct and decisive Presidents Lincoln, FDR, and Reagan, Judge Jeanine Pirro trashes Barack Obama as feckless and inept — a real embarrassment.

Even Obama’s own interactions with his Secretary of State, which one commentator compared to an Abbott & Costello routine,  show his bumbling incompetence.  And now he relies on Vladimir Putin to bail him out?

Hear the Judge’s fury in this 8-minute video.  This is her “Opening Statement” from the Sept 14, 2013 edition of the “Justice …

Video: Syria: Judge Jeanine Pirro Shreds Obama & Kerry for Feckless Flip-Flopping

The always passionate Judge Jeanine Pirro rips into Barack Obama and John Kerry for their breathtaking flip-flops, blame-shifting, and indecision as they flail about from day to day. It’s almost comical the way they cling to a pretense of consistency while offering all the leadership of a Whirling Dervish.*

This 11-minute video is the judge’s “Opening Statement” from her Sept 7, 2013 television program. It’s a great summary of the whole Syria situation, offered …
