Donald Trump may not be a professional politician, but he just proved again that he understands sales and marketing. He announced in a tweet this week that if elected, he would nominate South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy as his Attorney General.

This is one smart move. Now, when voters look at Trump, they see not only Donald but also Trey Gowdy, a.k.a. “The Bulldog,” as an AG who would fire all the racialist political hacks that Obama …

With marksman-like precision, presidential candidate Carly Fiorina savages the inept Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy and outlines how that policy would differ under a President Fiorina.

The first video below contain her remarks, and the second is a condensed version of the question-and-answer session.

All the 16-odd candidates talk a good conservative line. But Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz are the two serious candidates most likely to change Washington rather than have Washington change them. That’s why they’re on my short list!


Hat tip to the Ronald …

Cruz Hannity

Condemning what he calls the “Washington Cartel,” Ted Cruz explains why Republican leaders capitulate over and over to Democrats despite holding the majority in both chambers of Congress.

His answer: Because it’s all the same thing!

By their actions, GOP leaders have shown they are fully in league with Democrat leaders in subverting the core conservative principles on which our nation was founded and our Constitution was drafted.

The House has abandoned its authority and obligation to use the power of the purse …

In less than 5 minutes, Patrick Moore, a PhD in ecology and a founder of GreenPeace, tells you the most important things you need to know about “climate change.”

Big Government’s entire “climate change” initiative is a real gem — a magnificent example of how the Left perverts and politicizes science, exploits language to control the weak-minded, and empowers massive government agencies to confiscate our wealth and freedom while robbing our children of their future.

One day the Left will launch a major national initiative that actually reduces …

Pat Condell delivers another one-two punch to progressives who seem helpless to distinguish between debate and slander. In fact, they seem to think that slander is the very essence of debate.

That makes them frustrating to talk to but also very easy to insult, as Condell argues in this July, 2015 video.

If you try to argue with a progressive, and he/she switches to attacking your character, consider that you’ve won. No less an authority than Aristotle said:

“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool …

Man, how I love this woman!

Have you noticed how the media (even Fox) keep trying, over and over, to pit one GOP candidate against another? In the 2-minute clip below, Clinton Network News (CNN) anchor Jake Tapper tries to pit Carly Fiorina against Scott Walker on abortion.

Notice how Ms Fiorina turns the question back on Tapper and Hillary Clinton, delivering a one-two punch to both Clinton and the Democrat-servile media’s absurd double standard when it comes to political interviews.

Whether or not …

Video: Dr. Carl Goldberg: “Islam as a Totalitarian and Imperialist Ideology”

Last September, WesternFreePress.com published a debate between Dr. Carl Goldberg and Dr. Zuhdi Jasser called “Understanding Islam, Threat of Faith.” The video below is a July, 2015, presentation by Dr. Goldberg in which he speaks of “Islam as a Totalitarian and Imperialist Ideology.”

In his lectures, Dr. Goldberg always makes the point that Islam is not a mere religion in the usual Western sense of the word. It is also a total way of life, an ideology, that exhorts its believers to spread that ideology …

“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” ― William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night.

Sen. Chuck Schumer may well be pondering this bit of Shakespearean prose. Soon he will have to choose between his political party and the state of Israel.

Here’s how Doug Workman put it in an open letter to Schumer, published in the Jewish Journal:

Dear Senator Schumer:

I write to you in desperation.  …
