In this video clip from Tuesday’s The Kelly File, Congressman Trey Gowdy and Megyn Kelly weigh in on MIT professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s remarks on the deceit used to pass the Affordable Care Act and what he refers to as the “stupidity” of the American public. After this latest scandal broke both Gruber and the White House tried to walk things back by saying that he was speaking off the cuff. Kelly refuted this argument by showing another video where Gruber also demonstrated his contempt for the “stupid” public. It kind of makes one wonder when the professor will run out of cuffs. Kelly then played a clip from December, 2009 where then senator, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and strong Obamacare advocate Max Baucus referred to professor Gruber as a “credible and unbiased source.” It pains me to mention that professor, or should I say architect Gruber, was paid almost $400,000 by the White House (you and I) for his work on Obamacare.
Kelly brought on Congressman Trey Gowdy a Republican from South Carolina in the second half of the video. When asked his reaction to the Gruber affair he opened by saying: “I can’t get past the irony to get to the arrogance. The most ‘transparent’ administration since the continents shifted had to rely on artifice and deception to pass its signature piece of legislation. You can’t make that up. He had to lie to people, and then he justified it … So I can’t even get past the irony of that to get to the arrogance of him calling our fellow citizens stupid,” said Gowdy. He closed out his comments on this scandal by saying: “… So my fellow citizens have to keep in mind, fool me once, shame on you, ever fool me again, shame on us.”
Gowdy is chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi and Kelly did not miss this opportunity to ask him about the committee’s progress. He responded: “We have a very robust investigative plan that will kick off in December, and Megyn, I can tell you my goal was to have an investigation where witnesses who had never been talked to before felt comfortable coming forward because of the seriousness of our investigation and that is precisely what is happening. So it is not with a lot of fanfare, and there aren’t a lot of public hearings, but trust me when I tell you we are making tremendous progress.”

In a victory for religious freedom, the Supreme Court ruled today 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. in the case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (formerly named Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby). The case was the strongest legal challenge to Obamacare since 2012.
Justice Alito authored the majority opinion, and Justice Kennedy wrote a concurring opinion. Justice Ginsburg wrote the dissent, joined by Justices Sotomayor, Breyer, and Kagan. Read more at townhall.com.
On this week’s Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox News Channel, host Jeanine Pirro called for president Obama’s impeachment triggered by his recent release of five terrorists from Gitmo in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Here is a portion of her opening statement (post continues below video:
However, Breitbart senior editor-at-large Ben Shapiro says that impeachment isn’t the answer: prosecution is.
“Last month, Attorney General Eric Holder and his diversity cops sent a chill through the industry when they slapped the nation’s biggest auto lender, Ally Bank, with a $100 million penalty for alleged racist ”mark-ups” on loans to minorities.

Not a “smidgen” of corruption!
Very moving testimony: Catherine Engelbrecht, chairwoman of True the Vote, founder of King Street Patriots and President of Engelbrecht Manufacturing testifies before the House Oversight & Government Reform Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs. She spoke about being targeted by the Obama administration. Shortly after applying for tax exempt status for her organizations, the Engelbrechts, their non-profits and their business were subjected to more than fifteen instances of audits and inquiries by the IRS, OSHA, the ATF and the FBI.
Bill Dunne has an interesting take on Chief Justice John Roberts and the infamous Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act’s mandates to buy insurance. Only time will tell if he is correct.
By Bill Dunne
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts — a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling. Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton’s chance to live in the White House again.
The chief justice, an appointee of President George W. Bush and reputedly a constitutionalist in his jurisprudence, set his diabolical trap (diabolical to Democrats) on June 28, 2012, when he joined with the four liberal justices on the Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Conservatives and Republicans across the land were apoplectic. But in hindsight, it appears that Roberts actually saved the Republican Party from going into a death spiral and imperiled the Democrats instead. This suggests amazing foresight, but it wouldn’t be the only instance. Read more at: americanthinker.com.
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Its been almost a year since Obama gave his second inaugural, and this year has finally demonstrated to most people that he was a horrible choice for our country. The economy is in the slumps, and our healthcare system is in shambles. Voters might want to take note, and realize that Bill Whittle, and those like him, weren’t racist nor extremist–they were trying to save us from ruin.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan
Each time the far-left cries “racism” at a state’s attempt to protect voter integrity by enacting voter ID laws, it should be shown this photo of a world-renowned black leader enthusiastically supporting that very thing…
…Well, take a gander at this photo, discovered by Media Trackers, of the late Nelson Mandela — the man who crushed apartheid in South Africa and inspired the world — looking both jubilant and spiffy in his sweatshirt emblazoned with the words, “Get an ID. Register. Vote.” Read the entire article at: bizpacreview.com.

Energy & Commerce Committee memorandum announcing the hearing.
WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid a “bully” who is breaking the rules of the Senate because he needs to do whatever he can to change the subject in the media, and protect Obamcare from the daily pounding it is getting.
Paul is referring to the so-called “nuclear option” that Reid and Senate Democrats resorted to Friday which eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations. Read more at: wnd.com.
