Video: A Furious Judge Jeanine Pirro Guts Obama & Co. for Gross Incompetence and Indifference

Once again, Judge Jeanine Pirro eviscerates Barack Obama, Jay Carney, Kathleen Sebelius and the whole Obamacare gang for their stupefying incompetence made far worse by their indifference to the millions they are hurting.

It just keeps getting worse. The Obamacare debacle is shaping up to be a major national disaster. Some Americans may actually die from the loss of health care attributable to the cruelly misnamed “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” What will Obama and Jay Carney say when that …

Video: Audio: Glenn Beck Declares ‘Convention of States’ Is the ‘Only Way Back’

In his Dec 4 radio program, Glenn Beck endorsed the Convention of States approach as the “only way back” from a pending disaster to the constitutional republic that the Founders and Framers had in mind for us.

Actually, Convention of States (COS) is one of several movements (see also Compact for America) that rely on the Article V state-driven process to amend the Constitution without the permission or approval of Congress, the Supreme Court, or the President. …

Video: Cavuto Counterattacks! Condemns DC, Crushes Obama, Defends Fox News

Fox News’ Neil Cavuto explodes at Barack Obama and other politicians who attack Fox News for asking direct questions about their miserable stewardship of taxpayer money and their abysmal record of delivery on their promises.

In this 4-minute rant, he really sticks it to Washington, asking “What the … Fox … are you doing?” As always, he adds his own style of humor and self-deprecation, audibly breaking up his camera crew.

Memo to Washington: Neil Cavuto is doing his job. So is …

Video: Debbie Does Delusions – DWS Doubles Down on Obamacare Debacle

Here’s a video for the record — something to look back on a year from now. It’s from CNN’s Crossfire of Dec 3, 2013.  In it, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz says Democrats will “proudly” run on Obamacare in 2014.  When asked “Which Democrats?”, she answers “All of them.”

RNC Chair Reince Priebus is taken aback … he can’t believe she is doubling down on Obamacare as a “winner” for the 2014 elections. His astonished response? “Excellent!“.

This isn’t the first time DWS has …

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has a hard-hitting new ad called “They Knew.” It’s about the Great Obamacare Deception: “If you like your health care plan you can keep it. Period.”

The Great Obamacare Deception is no ordinary rhetorical exaggeration or misrepresentation by politicians. This time, people may literally die because of Big-Government overreach, incompetence, cronyism, and outright treachery.

As one former fan of the Obama administration said last week in a blog post: “It’s going to be a long time …

Video: Daniel Hannan on ‘Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World’

From the Heritage Foundation, November, 2013:

In “Inventing Freedom”, Daniel Hannan reflects on the historical origin and spread of the principles that have made America great, and their role in creating a sphere of economic and political liberty that is as crucial as it is imperiled. Hannan argues that the ideas and institutions we consider essential to maintaining and preserving our freedoms — individual rights, private property, the rule of law, and the institutions of representative government — are …

Video: Obamacare Wars: Capretta vs Tanden – a New Round of Lies?

As I write this article on Dec 1, 2013, the Obamacare website healthcare.gov is supposedly up & running. It’s not clear yet whether it is or not, or what “running” actually means. But already, Obamacare’s architects and defenders are spinning the news about the whole ongoing Obamacare debacle and offering yet another round of deceptive assurances and false promises.

In particular, see the video below in which Obamacare “writer” and apologist Neera Tanden debates James Capretta on the outlook for Obamacare.  Tanden …

The story of the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, and Thanksgiving is widely taught in all our schools.  What is seldom taught, however, is what those Pilgrims learned, at great pain, about Private Property & Free Markets versus Socialism. That story stands as perhaps the clearest and starkest-ever before-and-after comparison between those two rival systems for human interaction.

We all know how the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in November, 1620, and how they lost half their population to starvation, sickness, …

Video: A Caustic Judge Jeanine Pirro Ravages Obama as a Serial Liar

In her strongest attack yet, Judge Jeanine Pirro tears into Obama for his chain of lies about Obamacare and Benghazi, now-all-too-clearly concocted to win a second term on a mountain of fraud and deceit.

In the past, commentators used the “L-word”, lie, lying, or liar only rarely, usually choosing some bland euphemism instead. Judge Jeanine is holding back no longer — she uses the L-word 17 times in this diatribe.

By the Judge’s account, Emperor Obama has no clothes, and only his sycophantic inner …

In 16 minutes, this video lays out the saga, to date, of Obamacare, a stupefying national nightmare that has only just begun.

Included are Ronald Reagan’s dire and eerily accurate predictions of how nationalized healthcare would be “sold” to the American people and how it would be manipulated to steal our wealth and freedom.

Kudos to Young Republicans for producing this video.
