Video: VIDEO: Watch Jonathan Gruber try to comfort a “stupid” American voter

This hard-working but “stupid” American voter trusted Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and (implicitly) Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare Architect. Now the voter has lost his doctor, he’s lost his health plan, and he’s seen his premiums and deductible both skyrocket.

Just look at his face. He’s disappointed. He’s unhappy. He feels betrayed.

In this 9-second video satire, Gruber tries to comfort the voter as only an arrogant, condescending, faculty-lounge academic knows how.

Hat tip to National Lampoon’s 1978 classic “Animal House” for this video clip.

And a hat tip to the …

Video: Judge Jeanine: Are You Stupid? Obamacare’s Jonathan Gruber Says You Are

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber says what so many of thought all along — Big Government politicians think we’re stupid enough to swallow the lies they told about Obamacare. And now Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber is giddy with glee over the fraud he helped perpetrate. He uses us, We the People, as the target of his smug, elitist, condescending laugh lines in front of fellow elitists who join him in laughter.

In this video, Judge Jeanine takes the whole bunch to task, pointing out that anywhere else, …

Video: Harry Reid and Jonathan Gruber – Partners in Colossal National Fraud

In the 2009 video below, calling MIT’s Jonathan Gruber “one of the most respected economists in the world,” Harry Reid confidently predicts that thanks to  Obamacare, 93% of Americans will see reductions in health care premiums of up to 60%, and 30 million more people will be covered, all while reducing the deficit.

Say what!?

In 2009, that all sounded too good to be true, no? Well, it was. And it still is. And it keeps getting worse with each passing year.

We now know that Obamacare’s promises …

On Election Day, November 4, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews got smacked across the face by the semi-frozen flounder of reality. And on November 5, he spent the day on MSNBC looking as if his dog had just died as he trashed President Obama for listening only to his sychophants.

Then, on November 7, he was struck by a bout of uncharacteristically insightful reasoning about the president’s inability to even think outside his own progressive bubble, delivering a truly stinging criticism of …

Video: Election 2014: Judge Jeanine Pirro Spikes the Ball !

Judge Jeanine Pirro celebrates the results of the 2014 election, reveling in the historic reversals of Democrat fortunes across the country, as well as the rejection and repudiation of the president’s make-believe “war on women”. The endless repetition of that lie simply didn’t work for the Democrats. Bummer. What do they do when that tactic fails?

Astonishingly, the president seems to be claiming a mandate based on the 2/3 of voters who didn’t bother to show up at the polls! This is delusional. …

Video: Google & JP Morgan Seek Half-Billion Dollar Bailout for Another Solar Flop

Wow — talk about chutzpah!

Google & JP Morgan want the Federal Govt (you and me) to pay back part ($500 million) of a huge loan they took out to build a massive solar farm in the Mohave desert. It turns out to be uneconomical, not churning out enough power to make it a going concern.

See the video below. This is a solar furnace design that focuses desert sunlight on a tower, a variation on starting a fire with magnifying glass. Steam-powered generators produce electricity that …

Video: Rush Limbaugh: Governor Scott Walker, Genuine Star of Conservatism

On Nov 5, Rush Limbaugh paid tribute to Scott Walker, Governor or Wisconsin. He’s a Republican who wins elections in a blue state and as governor delivers tax reductions and budget surpluses to his constituents through conservative principles.

Walker’s performance as governor, his political skills, and his personal style are just about everything we could want in a leader for the New Republican Party. His appeal spreads across the entire GOP, from Tea Party Conservatives to old time, establishment, and even quasi-liberal Republicans. And from his …

Memo to all Big-Government, crony-capitalist, old-bull Republicans:

I’m a registered Republican who believes in the traditional Republican principles of limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility. Evidently, you no longer do and haven’t for quite some time now. Nonetheless, I’ll be voting for you today anyway — every single one of you that’s on my ballot.


Because the alternative is so much worse.

But don’t let it go to your head. If you win big, don’t think, as

When an employee cuts costs in the private sector he or she is a hero. When an employee cuts cuts costs in government, he’s a goat. And we wonder why there is waste in government(?). Check out the video below.

There is little to no incentive to save money or avoid waste in government bureaucracies. If anything there is an incentive to spend more because unspent funds are returned and the next year’s budget is determined by how much was spent in the prior …

Video: Judge Jeanine – Obama’s Apologetic Nice-Guy Diplomacy is a Disastrous Failure

Judge Jeanine excoriates Barack Obama for a foreign policy based on apologies, weakness, and a refusal to recognize true evil when it’s right in front of his own eyes.

Clearly his “Mr. Nice Guy” approach with our enemies isn’t working, yet as recently as May, the president boasted that the “tide of war is receding” thanks to his brilliant foreign policy.

Barack Obama chose to seek the world’s love rather than its respect. Predictably, he has lost both. And in the process he …
