Video: Video: After Senate Immigration Bill Passes, Rubio Hugs Reid, McCain Hugs Schumer

In the minutes after the “historic” passage of the Gang-of-Eight immigration bill S.744 on June 27, there were hugs and handshakes for all who voted “yes” for bill passage.

See the 90-second video clip below, edited from the C-Span coverage, which has some interesting body language in it.

Look for Harry Reid, holding court like a godfather at a wedding reception.  See John McCain giving Reid a warm, 2-handed handshake.  Watch McCain, Schumer, and Corker in a joyous …

Video: Trey Gowdy Answers Schumer-McCain Assertions about GOP’s Future and Immigration Bill

In the video below, from the June 30 Fox News Sunday program, Chuck Schumer asserts that the House must pass the Senate immigration bill (S.744) or else the GOP will be “a minority party for a generation.”

John McCain then actually endorses the Schumer view, but he does it obliquely so that he might back-pedal later on.  It’s the kind of Big-Government, Establishment-Republican position that McCain so often takes, putting Senate social harmony ahead of conservative principles.

In …

Video: An Interview with Becky Gerritson, Tea Party Leader and Political Independent

Becky Gerritson, President and Founder of the Wetumpka Tea Party, Alabama, is best known for her eloquent and emotional testimony before Congress on June 4.  Her words then were her own, and no professional speech writer could have done any better.

Ms Gerritson shines again in her interview video below, conducted by Ginny Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.  It is interesting that Gerritson is neither Republican nor Democrat.  She is an Independent, and she makes the …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Talks Justice for the American Taxpayer

Here’s another sharp-tongued “Opening Statement” from Judge Jeanine Pirro, June 29, 2013.

This one is about the double standard at the IRS where they run roughshod over First and Fourth Amendments for citizens & taxpayers but where IRS big bosses are quick to invoke 5th-Amendment protection for their own miserable carcasses.  As shown in the video below, this time it’s Greg Roseman, Deputy IRS Director, who pleads the fifth.

Add this to the indulgent $50 million tab for “conferences”,

Video: Sen. Marco Rubio Answers Conservative Critics of the Immigration Bill

On June 26, 2013, Sen. Marco Rubio attempted to answer critics of Senate Bill S.744, the “Gang-of-Eight” immigration bill, as amended. This is an annotated 3-minute segment of his full 12-minute speech. The annotations contain pointed questions and comments that those who’ve read the bill might well ask or make.

Many conservatives believe the government will yet again find a way to avoid putting in proper border security despite all the promises of S.744. The bill is huge, and there are …

Video: John McCain Claims Immigration Bill Triggers are “Iron-Clad”

In this one-minute video clip, John McCain proclaims that Senate Immigration Bill S.744 has triggers that are “iron-clad”, and anyone disagrees must “have a problem” with bringing 11 million people “out of the shadows.”

If Sen. McCain has read this bill, he knows full well that the “triggers” are loaded with waivers and exceptions that can be granted individually or en masse by the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, at her sole discretion.  My favorites are on pages …

Video: Promises, Promises, from Sen. Bob Corker on Fixing Immigration

For the record, here’s Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) talking about all the tough new border and immigration enforcement provisions that must be “fully” operational before any immigrant can get green card status.

This will be a good video for us all to re-visit in June of 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.  Since Sen. Corker was just reelected in 2012, he’ll be with us for the whole time.  Let’s see what he has to say on each of those anniversaries.

Corker does …

Video: Prominent Black Conservatives Talk Strategy with Sean Hannity

Several articles* on WesternFreePress.com have covered the growing number of prominent African Americans who have dared to declare that the Democrat Party’s Leftists have not been a boon to minorities or anyone else through their cultivation of racialism, victimhood, dependency, and demagogic demonization of all who disagree with them.

In the video below, Sean Hannity devotes an entire program to a discussion on this very subject among high-profile black …

On June 22, 2013, the United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives organized a kickoff rally and signing ceremony for a petition drive on the Capitol Lawn in Phoenix.

Comprising the alliance are Republican precinct committee members, small businesses, and hard-working Arizona taxpayers to stop Governor Brewer from bringing Obamacare to Arizona.

Volunteers around the state will be collecting 100,000 signatures by September 8 to stop the …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Targets the IRS

Once again, Judge Jeanine Pirro speaks for millions of Americans as she slams the IRS for handing out generous bonuses after the agency spent millions on conferences and targeted groups for their political beliefs.

Is this what the president meant when he promised his IRS employees would be held accountable?
