Clueless Liberal Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Cruz on Obamacare

Kimmel Mocks Cruz on Obamacare: 'I've Not Heard One Story' That 'It's a Disaster': On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC, the usually-friendly talk-show host had Ted Cruz on as his guest apparently just to mock him and talk down to him. While the interview started out friendly, Kimmel soon made jabs at Cruz for being unlikeable and attacked Cruz’s claims about Obamacare and radical Islam. The talk show host even claimed that he hadn’t heard “one” negative story about Obamacare, proving just how shallow his knowledge of the topic is.

Networks Pounce on Misdemeanor Charge for Trump Aide, Skimp on Covering Clinton Aide's Scandal

Networks Pounce on Misdemeanor Charge for Trump Aide, Skimp on Covering Clinton Aide's Scandal: In just the last three weeks, ABC, CBS and NBC’s evening newscasts have generated nearly 16 minutes of coverage looking at charges of misconduct against Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. That’s more than eight times the coverage than they’ve given over the past eight months to serious questions surrounding top Clinton aide Huma Abedin for her role in a variety of Clinton scandals (less than two minutes).

Lawmaker demands FTC probe into Clintons' 'sham charity'

Lawmaker demands FTC probe into Clintons' 'sham charity': A House Republican lawmaker is planning to ask the Federal Trade Commission to take a cue from law enforcement by looking into the Clinton Foundation's nonprofit status, and is calling the foundation a sham charity.
The letter, which is being circulated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. and which was obtained by the Washington Examiner, asks the FTC to investigate the charitable status of the group, due mainly to the criminal probe announced by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in January. That agency is seeking to determine whether public corruption laws were violated when Hillary Clinton worked for the foundation at the same time she served as secretary of state.

The Borking Liberal Media Goes to Work for Merrick Garland

The Borking Liberal Media Goes to Work for Merrick Garland: The media campaign to replace the conservative late Justice Antonin Scalia with an Obama appointee has begun.   It won’t be pretty. Republicans will be accused in the media -- actually they are already being accused -- of being “obstructionists” and worse in blocking the appointment of Judge Merrick Garland.  But how did it get this way with the media, Democrats and Supreme Court nominations in the first place?

NBC Reporter Calls Out Obama Hypocrisy on SCOTUS Block:
The media will always be a shill for leftists, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't give credit where credit's due when they do their actual job every now and then. 

In an interview on NBC Today with co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, White House Chief-of-Staff Dennis McDonough actually got grilled by Guthrie over Obama's hypocrisy for hitting Republicans on backing a SCOTUS nominee when he did the exact same thing to Justice Samuel Alito in 2006.

D'Souza Worried New Hillary Film Could Earn Him 'Life in Prison'

D'Souza Worried New Hillary Film Could Earn Him 'Life in Prison': Conservative filmmaker and author Dinesh D'Souza is concerned that his new documentary film, Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, might earn him a prison cell for the rest of his life. This may not bee too far-fetched as D'Souza spent eight months in federal confinement for violating a campaign finance law after his film, 2016: Obama's America. D'Souza recently addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he stated his concern:

Watch SNL's Hillary Clinton Give Up and Just Become Bernie Sanders

Watch SNL's Hillary Clinton Give Up and Just Become Bernie Sanders:
Saturday Night Live continues to lampoon Hillary Clinton with the help of cast member Kate McKinnon, whose take on the dynastic politician is hardly distinguishable from the real thing.

In this latest mock ad, SNL's Clinton is hoping to appeal to millennial voters. But instead of just adopting a few lines from opponent Bernie Sanders, Clinton totally gives up and just becomes Sanders himself.

Hollywood Hypocrites Cheer Assault on Free Speech at Chicago Rally, Blames Trump

Hollywood Hypocrites Cheer Assault on Free Speech at Chicago Rally, Blames Trump:
Left-wing hypocrisy is breathtaking in its scope and detachment from reality. 

In the wake of riotous protestors shutting down free speech at a Donald Trump rally in Chicago on Friday, Hollywood celebrities have taken to the airwaves to share their unsolicited two-cents.

Predictably, these usual suspects wholeheartedly supported the assault on free speech and placed the blame at Trump's door.

Ted Cruz Coming to Pennsylvania

This Just In From Lowman S. Henry ...
The Presidential campaign will come to the Keystone State when U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) addresses the 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference. The conference will be held April 1-2, 2016 at the Radisson Penn Harris Convention Center in Camp Hill (Harrisburg), PA.  Registration for the conference is now open at

Also announced as speakers for the conference are Fox News Channel (FNC) senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, Stephen Moore of Fox News, former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, President of the Heritage Foundation; State Senator Scott Wagner; Daniel Garza of the LIBRE Initiative; Congressman Mike Kelly; John Gizzi of Newsmax and Jeff Lord of the American Spectator and CNN.  There will also be four interactive panel presentations and three workshop sessions.

The Pennsylvania Leadership Conference is the premiere gathering of public policy conservatives each year in the Keystone State.  It is the largest and longest-running of the state-based conservative conferences regularly attracting a long list of conservative elected officials, scholars, journalists and activists for two days of speeches, panel presentations, workshops and networking.

In addition to Senator Cruz, invitations to speak to the 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference have been extended to the remaining candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination: Mr. Donald Trump, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich. 
In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas. A passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution, Ted won a decisive victory in both the Republican primary and the general election, despite having never before been elected to office.

Before being elected to the U.S. Senate, Ted Cruz received national acclaim as the Solicitor General of Texas, the State's chief lawyer before the U.S. Supreme Court. Serving under Attorney General Greg Abbott, Ted was the nation's youngest Solicitor General, the longest serving Solicitor General in Texas, and the first Hispanic Solicitor General of Texas.

In private practice in Houston, Ted spent five years as a partner at one of the nation's largest law firms, where he led the firm's U.S. Supreme Court and national Appellate Litigation practice.
Ted has authored more than 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and argued 43 oral arguments, including nine before the U.S. Supreme Court. During Ted's service as Solicitor General, Texas achieved an unprecedented series of landmark national victories.

Prior to becoming Solicitor General, he served as the Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice, and as Domestic Policy Advisor on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign.

Ted graduated with honors from Princeton University and with high honors from Harvard Law School. He served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist on the U.S. Supreme Court. He was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for the Chief Justice of the United States.
Ted and his wife, Heidi, live in his hometown of Houston, Texas, with their two young daughters, Caroline and Catherine.
The 2016 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference will feature four interactive panel presentations including Tax, Borrow & Spend: How Wolf's Agenda Harms Pennsylvanians and Enriches Unions; Restoring the American Dream; All Politics Are Local; and Litigating for Liberty.  There will be three workshop sessions including: Going Viral: Make Social Media Work for You; Faith of Our Founding Fathers; and Campaigning Like It's 2015, Not 1999
