Video: Take One Minute to “Remember the Days …”

Here’s a 1-minute excerpt from a Bill Whittle “Afterburner” video in which he calls on us to remember life before Obama.

Wow. That’s a lot of fundamental change in only 5 years! One wonders what’s in store for us next.

See also this link, for the full “Afterburner” video in which Whittle points out how even Democrats now agree that Sarah Palin was right about Obamacare’s “death panels.”

Thanks, Obama voters!  Is Obama everything you thought he’d …

Video: Senator Ted Cruz: How to Win the Fight on Obamacare

Here’s Ted Cruz at his best on how to win the fight on Obamacare — plain and simple — no teleprompters.

Keep your eye on this man. He has the right stuff to steward conservative American principles forward to a restoral and renewal of our Founders’ vision — that is, personal freedom and responsibility supported by a Constitutionally limited and fiscally responsible government.

Cruz’s vision is the polar opposite of the Obama vision — a toxic cocktail of warmed-over Marxism and crony-capitalist …

The GOP can use the Left’s own methods against them to win the public relations battle over Obamacare defunding.

In the battle over Obamacare defunding, the GOP has never held a stronger hand.

Obamacare is collapsing, riddled with loopholes and waivers, and it is massively unpopular.
The GOP House majority has full control over Obamacare funding — …

Video: Primaries: Start Your Engines!

In only a few short weeks, all Congressmen, especially Republicans, are going to face the biggest vote of their lives.

Some time between now and September 30, House representatives will have a chance to vote for a Continuing Resolution that implicitly funds or explicitly defunds Obamacare.

Virtually every Republican says he/she is “opposed” to Obamacare and in favor of “full repeal.”  Well, whoop-dee-doo! That’s as cheap-and-easy as favoring “world peace.”  We and they all know that full repeal …

Egypt protestor

Barack Obama and Mohamed Morsi: Birds of a Feather?

Ambivalence – a state of having simultaneous, conflicting feelings toward a person or thing.

Ambivalence is what I felt when I read the sharply critical comments of Egypt’s General Abdel Fatah Al-Sissi toward our very own President Obama as well as Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

On the one hand, my reaction was:  Hey, General, don’t go beating up on our president — only we can do that!

On the …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro: Obama Has Turned USA into a Paper Tiger

Judge Jeanine’s “Opening Statement” of August 3:

The USA used to be feared and respected. Now we are neither feared nor respected, thanks to the feckless foreign policy of Barack Obama.

In the classic political how-to manual The Prince (circa 1513), Nicco Machiavelli wrote:

My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to …

Cantor McConnell Boehner

Published August 2, 2013, this open letter, posted by Judson Phillips on the Tea Party Nation site, pretty much says it all.  I hope our Senators and Representatives will read it and take it seriously.  Sadly, most of them probably will not.

Dear Republican Senators and Congressmen,

By the end of today most of you will be fleeing Washington to escape what Al Gore calls global warming and the rest of us who are …

Video: Michelle Malkin Outscores Bill O’Reilly in Crushing Al Sharpton

On the July 31 Sean Hannity show, Michelle Malkin totally destroyed Al Sharpton with a fusillade of verbal torpedoes, each grounded in fact, and each a solid hit.  She even outdid O’Reilly’s prior two Talking Points monologues (here and here).

Small wonder that Sarah Palin calls Michelle Malkin a “90-pound mama grizzly”!

Will Sharpton let this one go unanswered?  I doubt it.  Watch for a flailing, delusional response.

Video: Ted Cruz and Laura Ingraham: Defunding Obamacare and “Government Shutdown”

In this 16-minute excerpt, Sen. Ted Cruz and talk-show host Laura Ingraham debate the pros and cons of Cruz’ proposed rider to the Continuing Resolution that would fund the government in full except for Obamacare.  In that CR, all payment for Obamacare, both discretionary and mandatory, would be blocked.

In short, the federal government could go right on spending as it has been, except for Obamacare.

Now …

Obama and the Democrat-controlled Senate have threatened in advance to block any CR that does not fund Obamacare.  With …
