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 …

Following President Obama’s astonishing “red line” denials, Jay Carney and his pals aren’t looking forward to the next White House press conference.  In order to save time and avoid confusion, the White House has prepared a short Barack Obama video to be played at the beginning of all future press conferences. In that video, the president declares:

I didn’t say what I said.

Video: Audio: Col. Ralph Peters Rips John McCain on Laura Ingraham Show

In this 12-minute audio clip, author and veteran Col. Ralph Peters takes John McCain to task for advocating US intervention in Syria.

Says Peters: John McCain can’t win the Vietnam war in Syria. He couldn’t win it in Afghanistan or Libya either. There seems to be no war he doesn’t want to get involved in.

Furthermore, not one of the Syrian-intervention crowd will go into any detail on the possible consequences.  What if jihadis seize control in Damascus? What happens if Al Qaeda …

Have you heard about Syria? Where are you when we need you? All I hear from you are crickets chirping. Sure, you’ve done a couple of half-hearted demonstrations in small numbers, but where are the rest of you? Hiding? Sulking? Cowering under your beds? Come on, this is your chance. Relive the 1960’s! (I was there. I saw you.)

Are you holding back because there are now conservatives who agree …

LET ALLAH SORT IT OUT — by Sarah Palin

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin

* President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned? WAGs don’t …

Video: Video: A Fired-Up Rafael Cruz Talks about Being an American

Rafael Cruz, father of Senator Ted Cruz, is on fire in this speech at a Heritage Action Defund Obamacare rally, Delaware, August 29, 2013. This is Mr. Cruz’s full 19-minute speech.

No one knows better what it means to be an American than a 1st-generation immigrant who comes from an oppressive socialist society — in this case, Castro’s Communist paradise in Cuba.

Wouldn’t Rafael Cruz make a great “First Father” for the USA?

Video: Video: “Convention of States” Can Amend U.S. Constitution without Federal Approval

Here is a brief (5-minute) video from Huckabee that neatly summarizes how the Constitution’s Article 5 can be used by the state legislatures to rein in a runaway Congress, President, and Supreme Court.

Huckabee’s guest, Michael Farris, is a leader in the Convention of States movement that aims to help state legislatures do exactly that — rein in the federal government.  They would do it by the book, per the Article 5 “escape …
