In this 30-minute Daily Caller interview, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich holds forth on critical near-term and long-term issues for America. Of special interest is his historical perspective on the tectonic forces in global politics, especially Leftism and militant Islam, and what they portend for America unless we make deliberate changes.
Topics by timeline appear below:
00:00 Obama administration, speech censorship, and cultural imperialism
03:00 In what sense is Obama and imperial President, and what can Republicans do?
Cut incremental tax rates 20% across the board.
Elminate some yet-to-be-determined deductions (there are more than 170 of them) to make up for the lower rates.
Part 1 is pretty clear. Part 2 is not, and the press is quite right to pound on Romney-Ryan for more specifics. Romney says he’ll ”work with Congress” to choose which deductions to eliminate, and it will be done in …
On October 13, Newt Gingrich held forth on the Benghazi debacle, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, including Biden’s astounding assertions in his debate with Rep. Paul Ryan on October 11.
Gingrich’s remarks include rare praise (from him) for the mainstream media, which are not letting go of the Benghazi story. He also characterizes Biden’s “weird” debate performance as “The Vice President as Bozo the Clown”.
The venue for this short interviedw was the Mike Huckabee program, and the video (below) is under …
Listen in as President George Bush and Governor Sarah Palin take two minutes to figure out the terminology used by our Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics!
The “Who’s on First” dialog:
I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
Good subject. Terrible Ttimes. It’s 7.8%
That many people are out of work?
No, that number …
One of my favorite parts of the Oct 11 VP debate appears in the first 27 seconds of the composite video below. In that segment, Joe Biden categorically rejects the (Laffer Curve) notion that tax cuts could ever increase revenue to the government, and he ignorantly dismisses the claim that they ever have.
Biden then boorishly mocks Paul Ryan’s reference to John F. Kennedy’s 1962 tax cut initiative with his sure-to-be-remembered, bone-headed non-sequitur “So Now …
In a prior article, I combined the writing of Thomas Sowell with WesternFreePress.com interviews of six Americans who have had first-hand experience living under socialism. This article is a brief reprise.
Through various forms of redistribution, socialistic systems appear to “share prosperity” and “spread the wealth around.“ Barack Obama himself uses these phrases. Such phrases make socialism sound like it might be a good thing — at least at …
Good old Joe. Often wrong, but never in doubt, he thinks he had a great night debating Paul Ryan. But just one day later, his lies (errors?) and exaggerations are debunked by mulitple sources, including liberal media and fact checkers.
Choosing which lies and exaggerations to expose is a bit like being in a candy store. Where does one start?
The Romney/Ryan choices for the top five appear below, along with excerpts from the sources that …
Bishop E. W. Jackson’s video, posted here, has gone viral, and he has followed up with two more videos that could well do the same.
In the video below, Bishop Jackson calls on black Christians and believing Jews to leave the Democrat party because of that party’s racialist groupthink and support for same-sex marriage. He is himself a Republican, but he does not call for anyone to join the Republican party.
The subject of political party affiliation and …
