Video: John Stossel and Charles Murray on the Welfare State — A Way Out?

At the 2013 Stossel Freedom Fest, John Stossel, Charles Murray, and Larry Reed discussed the history of welfare and possible ways out of the dilemma that a massive, growing welfare state has created for America.

Some fear we’ve already passed the point of no return on the welfare state — too many have become dependent on the state, and the pace under Obama has only been accelerating.  The mostly libertarian audience at Freedom Fest seemed to favor an outright end to …

Video: D Axelrod: New York Should Not Choose A Wiener for Its Mayor!

The Anthony Wiener scandal has proven to be too much even for Democrat loyalist David Axelrod.  In the July 28 Meet the Press broadcast, Axelrod tells Wiener to stop exposing himself and his city to ridicule, zip up his campaign, and just go away for crying out loud!

This short clip also includes interesting comments from the leading candidate for the Democrat nomination, Christine Dunn. Besides agreeing that Wiener ought to disappear, Dunn makes some promises …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Rips Obama for His “Phony Scandals” Claims

With her cutting sarcasm and rapier wit, Judge Jeanine Pirro eviscerates Obama for his whining about the “phony scandals” that are dogging him and administration. Sadly, those scandals are all too real.

Scandal by scandal, like nails in a coffin, the judge pounds home her case for the Obama administration’s malfeasance, law violations, and cover-ups.

In this short video, she features Ben Ghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS Targeting, AP Phone Records Seizure, and some details on the stone-walling and flailing cover-ups that have followed. …

Video: Obama Links Mass-Murderer Ho Chi Minh to Thomas Jefferson

Viet Cong leader Ho Chi Minh is venerated in Communist Viet Nam today, as he was on American college campuses when I attended college in the 1960’s. Years earlier, his forces engaged in Stalinist- and Maoist-style murders of his own people as he tried to build a workers’ paradise. By one account, written in the year before Ho died:

The terror had its real beginning when Red dictator …

Video: Crushed by Krauthammer — Sally Kohn Debuts on Fox News Panel

Fox News Special Report on July 22 featured Sally Kohn as part of the “All-Stars Panel” at the end of the program.  Kohn is so far to the political Left that she makes Juan Williams look like Milton Friedman.  For her debut, she uncorked two stupefyingly absurd assertions as if they were both common street knowledge.

Namely —

Barack Obama is a deficit reducer
Detroit’s financial problems are the result of excessive austerity

She did not preface her …

Video: Adult Supervision Comes to Detroit via Kevyn Orr, Emergency Manager

All the July 21 Sunday talk shows featured something about the Detroit bankruptcy filing.  Seven minutes of excerpts from two of those shows appear in the video below.

First, NBC’s Meet the Press roundtable provided a clear example of how the Left instinctively views a crisis like Detroit’s.  Namely, says former Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm:  Detroit has been a victim of forces beyond its control, and Washington has let Detroit down by not rescuing it …

Video: Bill O’Reilly Unloads on Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, and Hollywood

On his July 22, 2013 No-Spin show, Bill O’Reilly set political correctness aside in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict and right after Barack Obama’s call for a “serious conversation on race.”

This is that conversation, says O’Reilly.  He directly attacks Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and even President Obama for lack of leadership and/or negative leadership that worsens race relations and ruins lives of young Americans.  He also unleashes a blunt and powerful attack on Hollywood for glamorizing crime and cultivating …

Video: Bill Whittle’s Perspective on the Lynching of George Zimmerman

Here is Bill Whittle’s 10-minute summary of how the various factions on the Left, including those in the media, are joining forces for a modern-day lynching of George Zimmerman.

The critical section appears around the 9-minute mark, where Whittle states:

The people that are pushing this narrative of a racist assassin and an innocent black child, the judge and prosecutors in the worst kangaroo court in living memory, did everything in their power to make certain that no one knew anything about …

Video: The Federal Government’s Spendthrift Culture Comes from Its CEO

Spendthrift – One who spends money recklessly or wastefully.

In the video below, Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) takes President and Mrs. Obama to task for using Air Force One and other official aircraft as their “personal toys.” It’s not about the money as much as it is the message Obama voluntary chooses to send.

As an engineer for nearly 40 years, I had the privilege to work for three fine companies, all very big and “rich” …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro Rips Rolling Stone Magazine and Their Boston Bomber Cover Boy

Once again, Judge Jeanine Pirro is in high dudgeon as she rips into Rolling Stone magazine for glorifying and glamorizing maimer and murderer, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. She finishes with a sharply worded message to the Boston Bomber Boy himself as she gives voice to what so many Americans feel but rarely hear in our PC-saturated media.

This is the July 20, 2013, “Opening Statement”, by Judge Jeanine.
