Video: President Obama Uncorks Another Whopper

Remember the hippie motto “If it feels good, do it”? President Obama’s motto must be “If it sounds good, say it”.

On October 2, in an address to Northwestern University business students, Barack Obama unequivocally proclaimed the following (emphasis added):

It is indisputable that our economy today is stronger than when I took office. By every economic measure, we are better off now than we were when I took office. 

This astonishingly false assertion is an even bigger, bolder lie than “If you like …

Video: Obama’s Spinmasters Invent “Khorosan”

From the people who brought you a fictional 9/11 Video protest as the fictional cause of the all-too-real Benghazi atrocity, we now get “Khorosan”, an ostensibly “new” terror group wishing to attack the USA.

As Andy McCarthy writes in National Review (emphasis added):

There is a reason that no one had heard of [Khorosan] until a nanosecond ago, when the “Khorosan Group” suddenly went from anonymity to the “imminent threat” that became the rationale for an emergency …

Video: Judge Jeanine: It’s US vs THEM – Time to Wake Up!

With the Oklahoma heading as backdrop, Judge Jeanine Pirro says it’s time to stop caring what the rest of the world thinks of us, close the borders, end political correctness, and move to a war footing.

Freedom and an open society has spoiled us. It’s us versus them. It’s time to wake up. Otherwise our worst nightmare will soon be upon us.

Video: Bill Maher Trashes the Left’s ‘War on Women’ Meme for Warped Priorities

Some call Bill Maher the potty-mouthed Left-wing counterpart to Bill O’Reilly. But occasionally, Maher’s “own people” on the Left, as he affectionately calls them, go too far even for Maher with their vile, warped sense of priorities.

In the excerpt below, from his Sept 26 show, Maher skewers the Lefties for their moronic logic when it comes to Muslim atrocities and Republicans’ alleged “War on Women”. Conservative pundits often say essentially the same thing as Maher does here, but of course it means more coming from one of …

Eric Holder

A White House spokesperson has announced that Eric Holder will be stepping down as Attorney General, staying on only so long as it takes for President Obama to name a replacement.

We’ll have to wait to hear Holder’s reasons for stepping down, and I expect we’ll hear the usual “I want to spend more time with family”, “I’m proud of my record as AG”, “I’ll continue …

According to the National Journal,

House Republicans are quietly discussing a proposal that could fundamentally alter the way future speakers of the House are chosen, according to multiple GOP sources, with the objective of avoiding a repeat of John Boehner’s embarrassing reelection vote in 2013.

The rule tweak began as an informal discussion but has morphed into a concrete proposal that is beginning to circulate in the House. According to people briefed on it, any …

Video: Breaking Up with Barack Obama – New Ad Going Viral

This is a good political ad from many perspectives … it’s rapidly going viral, and Leftists / Progressives / Democrats are putting up a lot of flak about it — that’s how one can tell that the ad is right over the target .

The ad is from Americans for Shared Prosperity. True to form, the Left is already attacking the organization and ignoring the points made by the woman in the ad.

As Aristotle said, “When the debate is lost, slander becomes …

Video: Judge Jeanine: ISIS is Here, Govt Can’t Protect Us, Get Prepared Now

For many months, Judge Jeanine Pirro has been warning that a big attack, much bigger than 9/11, is near for America. As she puts it, this is the biggest single threat in our 238-year history.

Our federal government has left our physical borders unsecured, and even if those borders were secure, the feds still can’t track visa overstays by foreigners. So we’re extremely vulnerable. We have no idea who is coming here or who is already here to do us harm.

With …

Video: Dr. Zuhdi Jasser Smacks Down Obama’s “ISIS is not Islamic” Proclamation

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is aghast at the ignorance and arrogance of Barack Obama, John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, Jeh Johnson, and Josh Earnest who presume to tell the world what is, and is not, Islamic. Says Jasser, the behavior of ISIS/ISIL most certainly is Islamic, in its fundamentalist form, and by pretending and posturing otherwise, Obama et al are burying efforts like Jasser’s to reform Islam from within.

Zuhdi Jasser is an American physician, a devout Muslim, a former US Navy Lt. Commander, …
