Coulter: Knowing What We Know Now, Would You Say Jeb Bush Is Retarded?

By Ann Coulter
.
Was Jeb Bush too busy watching telenovelas during his brother’s presidency to remember the Iraq War? We went to war at such breakneck speed after 9/11, that, before the invasion, I was able to write approximately 30 columns about it, give five dozen speeches on it, discuss it on TV a hundred times and read 1,089 New York Times editorials denouncing the “rush to war.” So I remember the arguments.

Contrary to the fairy tale the left has told itself since Obama truculently gave away America’s victory in Iraq, our argument wasn’t that we had to invade Iraq because of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. And the left’s argument certainly was not: “He doesn’t have any WMDs!”

Our argument was: There were lots of reasons to get rid of Saddam Hussein, and none to keep him.

Indeed, after Bush’s State of the Union address laying out the case for war with Iraq, The New York Times complained that he had given too many reasons: “Even the rationale for war seems to change from day to day. Mr. Bush ticked off a litany of accusations against Iraq in his State of the Union address …” (New York Times, Feb. 2, 2003)

Among the reasons we invaded Iraq were:  Continue reading at anncoulter.com.

Stephanopoulos, ABC Have Not Fully disclosed Clinton Ties

Investigative reporter and best selling author Peter Schweizer has been vilified by the progressives and the mainstream media for his new book, Clinton Cash. I guess the truth hurts. In this article, which appeared in USA Today, Schweizer, uncovers Stephanopoulos’ undisclosed involvement with the Clinton Foundation:

Fact-driven, fair, aggressive journalism animates American politics. As an investigative journalist, I am accustomed to asking tough questions. When I publish, I expect tough questions in turn,

That’s not what ABC News This Week host and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos delivered when he interviewed me about my new book on the Clinton Foundation last month. There’s a reason. Though Stephanopoulos belatedly disclosed $75,000 in donations to the foundation, he has yet to disclose his much deeper relationship with the Clinton Foundation.

When Stephanopoulos invited me on his Sunday program, I knew that he had worked as a top adviser and campaign manager to President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, but I didn’t know about his donations or his other ties to the foundation founded and overseen by the former president and his wife, potential future president Hillary Clinton.

Sheriff David Clark: “These Cops are Political Prisoners”

A partial transcript of the video:  “We have a long way to go but I still believe in our system of justice and in the end justice will prevail.  She doesn’t get the final say in this.  She knows she’s not going to be able to prove all these charges beyond a reasonable doubt.  This is George Zimmerman and the Duke lacrosse case all over again.  A politically active district attorney or state’s attorney; You can tell the emotion in her voice.  She almost did this with glee and that’s why I believe like they do when I say they, the officers union and the attorney that we just heard from.  She needs to remove herself from this case.  I hope this state’s attorney general gets involved in this and sees the error of her ways.  The smart thing for her to do is to recuse herself and name a special prosecutor.”

Al Jazeera America Spends $73,519 Per Viewer

Surely they could buy their votes cheaper than that!

John Nolte Apr 28th, 2015

Eighteen months after its launch, Al Jazeera America (AJA) is still losing gobs of money, and according to numbers provided by the New York Post, spending $73,519 per viewer. Since its August 2013 debut, AJA has spent a whopping $2 billion and brought in only around $15 million in advertising revenue. The result is an average of only 27,000 total viewers. According to my admittedly shaky math, that’s $73,519 per viewer. Read more: at breitbart.com.

Folk Heroes vs. Terrorists: A Progressives’ Guide


Many people may be confused about how to tell a “legitimate” protestor from a trouble maker or even a terrorist.  This handy guide to free speech for Progressives should help!  For example, the Gyrocopter pilot who violated numerous laws and endangered lives -  NOT A TERRORIST!  The million tea party “people” who marched on Congress under a permit in a lawfully organized demonstration – Terrorist!  Here’s how to tell.  The Gyrocopter pilot worked for the post office, so is a government worker – NOT a terrorists!  The tea party people want Congress to read bills before they pass them – Terrorists!

Judge Jeanine Pirro: Hillary Clinton Is On The Run

Why is the most transparent woman in history on the run? What is she running from? Judge Jeanine Pirro suggests a few possible reasons. Basically listing a series of lies. “Maybe she’s traumatized from all that sniper fire in Bosnia?” “…This was the same woman folks, who said she was dead broke when she left the White House. For your information folks, the year after she left the White House, her’s [sic] and Bill’s income was sixteen million dollars,” The judge then went on to play a clip of Hillary Clinton talking about her accomplishments where Clinton said: “The most important thing I did was help restore America’s leadership around the world and I think that was a very important accomplishment.” REALLY? And as the song goes: on and on.

The Five Worst Clinton E-mail Excuses

by Andrew Johnson – March 31, 2015
The lamest of the lame apologists Hillary Clinton’s e-mail controversy has left her supporters in the media and her political circle grasping at straws. A few weeks in, her supporters have looked for any excuse, no matter how ridiculous, to justify her practice of using only a personal account through a private server run out of her home. Familiar faces from the 1990s as well as new surrogates have rushed to protect the 2016 Democratic frontrunner as each new damning detail emerges. As you can see below, their efforts have produced decidedly mixed results:

Hysteria Over Cruz Illustrates What We’re Up Against

z

William Warren, Americans for United Government

By Lloyd Marcus, a proud unhyphenated American

Wow! Can you believe how Ted Cruz is catching it from both sides in response to his powerful speech announcing his quest to win the White House in 2016? As expected, the Left is doing their typical thing calling Cruz extreme, stupid and crazy. Conservatives are taking shots at Cruz because he has not mastered walking on water.

Folks, this is what you get when you have the cojones to take a bold stand for liberty and conservatism. The hysteria, outrage, slings and arrows coming from both sides of the political aisle targeted at Cruz is what a true conservative must be willing to endure.

For crying out loud, Cruz simply trumpeted traditional principles and values that Americans have celebrated since the Republic’s founding; American Exceptionalism, liberty, freedom, hard work, God and country. The problem is without even realizing it, many have succumb[sic] to the Left successfully tainting their thinking, lowering the nation’s behavioral bar and forcing political correctness down our throats. So when a Ted Cruz comes along, his message sounds edgy to those hearing it for the first time. And yet, I believe many will be instinctively drawn to it.

Why? Because conservatism connects with our higher self/spirit. It inspires people to be the best they can be. That is what attracted me to conservatism.

Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice….and follow me.” Without a miracle, conservatism will not resonate with lazy deadbeats filled with class envy and hatred for achievers. It is a foreign language to them. All they care about is handouts and a free ride. Let the Democrats continue pandering to them; the chickens and turtles. Let’s take the higher ground, striving to attract eagles which I believe are a majority of the American people. This is why the Left is so terrified of Cruz, he knows how to spread the good news of conservatism.

Folks, we must stop Obama’s quest to diminish who we are, reducing us to a nation of part-time workers, dependent and subservient to big government. In the name of our founding fathers, we are Americans! Let’s act like it!  Read more at Lloydmarcus.com.

The Real Reason Harry Reid is Retiring

AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) explains his shocking decision to not seek re-election and retire when his term ends in 2016 by telling the New York Times, “he was worried his race would consume campaign money that would be needed in other competitive states as Democrats try to regain control of the Senate.”

“I think it is unfair for me to be soaking up all the money to be re-elected with what we are doing in Maryland, in Pennsylvania, in Missouri, in Florida,” Reid told the Times.

Reid said neither his recent eye injury nor concern over his chances of winning played a factor in his decision.

But the real reason Reid is retiring may have nothing to do with any of these excuses and everything to do with his concerns that a possible Republican Presidential victory in 2016 would lead to the appointment of a Republican Attorney General in January 2017.

A Republican Attorney General would be almost certain to initiate a criminal investigation into Reid’s abuse of his political power in a brazen intervention in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) issuance of EB-5 visas to investors in a Las Vegas casino and hotel that was represented by his son, Rory Reid, as was highlighted in a report released by the Inspector General of DHS last week.

“I think Harry Reid’s getting out of town ahead of the posse,” former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova tells Breitbart News. Read more at breitbart.com.

 

Ted Cruz Announces Presidential Run

March 23rd, 2015: In a speech on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, Sen. Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to announce a presidential bid for 2016. It is fitting that Cruz picked this campus to announce, as he has clearly championed Liberty throughout his lifetime. And it is no accident, in my opinion, that he chose today to announce, as it is the fifth anniversary of the signing of Obamacare into law.

 

 

Bibi Wins, Obama Loses

Despite the Obama Regime’s trying to influence the Israeli elections, Netanyahu stands on principle… and wins!

Five Lessons US Conservatives Should Learn From Netanyahu

by Ben Shapiro17 Mar 2015

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won re-election according to the latest vote counts, defeating not just his domestic leftist opposition, but the President of the United States in a public stand-off that had the President sending emissaries to Israel to try and oust Netanyahu. The victory represented a stunning turnaround for Netanyahu, whose Likud Party trailed significantly in the polls in the days leading up to the election.

How Netanyahu shifted the narrative in Israel makes for a compelling political case study in principle over prevarication. Netanyahu overcame a highly-publicized domestic scandal involving allegedly ordering some $2,700 worth of ice cream to the official residence, and exceeding his household budget by approximately a million shekel. He overcame inflation against the dollar that jacked up prices of goods in the weeks leading up to the election, and inflated real estate prices over the course of the last six years. He overcame foreign money injected into the campaign.

How? He employed five key tactics — tactics from which American conservatives could learn:

Build Around a Personality. Netanyahu’s speech before Congress was the latest indicator that he was a world leader ready to face down the most powerful people in the world, including Iran and its new friends in the Obama administration. While many Israelis said they didn’t want Netanyahu as prime minister, they preferred him over his rivals in every poll for months before the election by a wide margin. In the late days of the campaign, Netanyahu campaigned openly on the idea that conservatives ought to vote for his party in order to elevate him personally. By positioning himself as a major international presence, Netanyahu placed himself in admirable political position. There is danger to this strategy: it allows the opposition to focus on you personally. But voters vote for people, not for ideas.  Continue reading at breitbart.com.

White House Office to Delete its FOIA Regulations

It doesn’t get any more transparent than this!

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.

But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It’s also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.

“The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me,” said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

“It is completely out of step with the president’s supposed commitment to transparency,” she said. “That is a critical office, especially if you want to know, for example, how the White House is dealing with e-mail.” [bold type: Mine]
