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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
