Hillary Snubbed as Trump Names Priebus Chief of Staff, Bannon Chief Strategist

By Rick Pearcey • November 13, 2016, 06:50 PM

Fox News reports:

President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday appointed Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as his White House chief of staff.

Trump also announced that campaign CEO Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, will be his chief strategist and senior counselor.

All indications are that Hillary Clinton has be shut out of this process, receiving no pay-to-play bribes or other gifts in return for her role in elevating the proflies of Priebus and Bannon.

Election 2016: The Dream Called America Dodges a Bullet -- Now What?

By Rick Pearcey • November 9, 2016, 07:23 PM

We dodged a bullet last Tuesday. A bullet directed at the heart of the American dream.

In the timely defeat of Hillary Clinton and in the stunning victory of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, a significant battle has been won. Much, however, remains to be done -- at levels strategic and foundational -- if we are to carry days beyond this day.

As a matter of strategic import, we must restore the real-world governing centrality of the U.S. Constitution, as written and not as killed by secularists and their dead "living" "Constitution" -- which they then mangle to make it say and ratify whatever it is they want to do to have their way with the American body politic.

It is a simple fact: The freedoms so central to a humane life here in the U.S. cannot be sustained, and are not being sustained, by mere lip service to a bunch of words on a piece of paper called the Constitution. This is what the presidential oath of office has been reduced to -- just a perfunctory act on Inauguration Day, the content of which is denied all the other days by that massive non-Constitutional monopoly of establishment power that is the federal government, its eyes and tentacles reaching and probing every aspect of our individual lives.

That is not freedom. That is not human dignity. We are made for better than this.

And so we can be thankful that Hillary Clinton's defeat derails what clearly would have been a successful effort to radicalize the Supreme Court by inserting extremist activists pretending to be justices. Pretenders -- not judges, but partisan operatives. Not justices, but political hacks. Using their position to legalize brutality, empower the executioners, and create "law" out thin air. What an inhumane disaster an anti-Constitutional Clintonized court would have been.

Also as a matter of strategic and foundational import, we must restore the Declaration of Independence -- to which the Constitution is inextricably linked. To which it is wonderfully and ingeniously linked. Such that to delink these two foundational documents is to occasion great harm and sorrow. It is to strike at the heart of that liberating dream and beckoning land which is called America.

In fact, if we allow political elites -- whether Republican or Democrat -- to alienate the Constitution from the principles of human freedom and human dignity set forth in the Declaration rooted with practical realism in an actually existing Creator -- well, let's just say that's how tyrants can use the "form" of the Constitution to deny its liberty and thereby impose an authoritarian, centralized power regime upon "We the People." 

What a gross and outrageous offense to the human being. We bearers of publicly actionable unalienable rights endowed by the Creator are made for better than this.

Thus the disaster of Washington elites so alienated from the American people of today -- in very large measure because these elites are already so alienated from those "magnificent" words of the Declaration and the Constitution, to quote Martin Luther King, Jr. Were it not for those magnificent words, there would have been no Martin Luther King. And never could there have been that shining, bright light of cultural advance displayed in the magnificent words of his epochal speech "I Have a Dream."

And so, because of the electoral outcome last Tuesday, we live to fight another day. We live to face down the spiritual terror aching to be unleashed yet more by extremists against the Constitution and Declaration -- by yet more aggressive figures to arise and attack in the mold of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

These are the soft-spoken suit-and-tie totalitarians. The professionally aggrieved pantsuit propagandists.

They call it "transforming America" -- in reality, it's an attack on America. An attack on the indispensable foundations of human freedom and human dignity. An assault on the heart of the American body politic that is rightfully so challenged, and so uplifted to the challenge, by magnificent Constitutional and Declarational words conveying liberating principles that speak to the very center of every human being.

To add insult to injury, and offense to indignity, this attack is so extremely dishonest.

They call it "liberation." They call it "equality." "Diversity." Words and slogans whose hidden purpose is to dominate and control, to elevate into power an elite "more equal" than "We the People," and to impose a phony diversity the better to divide -- that the controllers might more easily conquer and rule.

What dishonesty, how inhumane, and such disrespect. We the human beings are made for so much more than this.

So, yes: Congratulations, O America. We live to fight another day. America lives to fight another day.

Let us make the most of who are. Let us make the most of what America as America always can strive to be. A walking dream from the mind of the Creator. A land of light, liberty, and humanity.

No perfection, it is true. And yet enough of a marvel to draw the people of the world to the beacon of our borders and the shining of our shores.

Election 2016: 3rd Party and Hillary Clinton's "Spiritual Terror"

By Rick Pearcey • November 5, 2016, 09:11 PM

We stand on the eve of one of the most profound moments in our nation's history. I mean this, and I affirm this, with all of my heart, soul, strength, and mind.

That is what Election Day 2016 is. For good or for ill, E-Day Nov. 8, 2016, presents us with a choice that will decisively impact every single one of us on the very deepest of levels of who we are.

The results of this day will affect us immediately in the concrete realities of our daily lives -- reaching even into matters of life and death. Even more, the results of E-Day will immediately and decisively affect the very structure and direction of who we are as a people and as a national community, whether we shall stand for great good and beauty or for great ill and ugliness.  

To help clarify the gravity of this election, consider "The Parable of the Three Firefighters":

As dusk approached, a mother and father were working together in their garden. They heard shouts and saw smoke and firelight coming from a direction that could only mean their home was on fire and their three children at risk.

They dropped their gardening tools and rushed home to hear voices say, "Mom! Dad! Help us!" The father rushed toward the home to save the children, but collapsed before entering, so hot was the blaze. He was pulled to safety.

Two firefighters appeared on scene, one slightly earlier than the other, both ready to work. Because of logistics, only one firefighter with truck and crew could be positioned to quell the flames.

The first firefighter arrived and said truck and crew were ready and that fire hoses could be deployed to put out the fire, save the children, and keep the house from burning down. This firefighter was long-approved by pillars of the community. The only problem was that this firefighter's fire hoses would be filled with gasoline.

The second firefighter was gruff and disliked by some of the neighbors. But his truck and crew were ready and his fire hoses could be deployed immediately to save the children and keep the house from burning down. And there was water in the hoses of his fire truck.

A third firefighter and his fire truck were on the way. Some said he was the best firefighter the community had ever known. "It would be best to wait for him," they said. But he and his crew were many miles away and there was little chance he could arrive in time to put out the fire, save the children, and keep the house from burning down.

The mom and dad almost allowed the first firefighter and crew put out the fire. But the parents smelled the gas in the nick of time and discovered the fire hoses were filled with gasoline, not water. So they said no to the long-approved firefighter because they loved their children and knew the result would be a disaster.

The mom and dad liked the third firefighter and listened when neighbors said, "It would be best to wait for him." But the parents understood that the third firefighter and his crew were many miles away and there was little chance they would arrive in time to put out the fire, save the children, and keep the house from burning down.

So the mom and dad decided in favor of the second firefighter, even though he was gruff and disliked by some of the neighbors. For his truck was ready and his fire hoses could be immediately deployed to save the children and keep the house from burning down. And there was water in the hoses of his fire truck.

And there was singing and great rejoicing as the children were saved and much of the house preserved, to be rebuilt better and stronger than before, because mom and dad acted wisely on the day when fire threatened the future of them all.    

In "The Parable of the Three Firefighters," the first firefighter represents Hillary Clinton. As the initial responder, Mrs. Clinton with her crew is ready to "put out the fire." Unfortunately, her fire hoses are filled with gas -- that is, applying her solutions to America will only make matters worse in our country, in fact, dramatically and potentially catastrophically worse.

It is important to grasp that what Hillary Clinton will unleash is a form of spiritual terror. Consider the spiritual terror of immigration chaos in a nation without effective borders. Common sense tells us that just as the human body needs skin to regulate what is allowed in physically, even so a nation needs a border to regulate what is allowed in nationally. As human skin is to the health and growth of a human body, even so national borders are to the health and growth of a humane nation. No skin, no body; no border, no nation.

A healthy body politic therefore respects strong borders to protect our domestic life against criminals, drugs, cartels, Islamic terrorists, and so on. A healthy nation rejects illegal immigration and carefully regulates legal immigration to ensure that only those who love what it means to be American are allowed the privileges of citizenship. To do otherwise is violence against the spirit of America and places the lives of our sons and daughters -- in fact, all of us -- in harm's way.

We have already seen how eight years of the Obama regime have brought home murder, sexual assault, drug abuse, Islamic jihad into America, and more. It's hard to see how any humane person could knowingly vote in ways that enable a Hillary Clinton to assume the office of the U.S. presidency.

Much the same could be noted in relation to the spiritual terror that a President Hillary Clinton would unleash regarding Islamic terror, which she refuses even to name. Imagine going to a doctor unwilling to name a life-threatening cancer, lest he be accused of being "cancer-phobic." Such a doctor would be a quack -- and a deadly one at that. Enabling the elevation of such a person to high office would be unconscionable. To the office of the U.S. president? Insane.  

But let us not fail to mention a deeper aspect of Clinton's spiritual terror, and that is the anti-Constitutional terror and anti-Declaration of Independence terror that will be unleashed across America in a Clinton regime should we allow her to occupy the office of president.

The core of America, that genius of America, that enduring mainstream of America, is located in the Declaration of Independence for all to see. It is that to which the next president will swear to "preserve, protect, and defend" when taking the presidential oath of office.

The core, the enduring mainstream genius, is the political vision that accepts the real-world, publicly actionable principle that an actual and real Creator, and not any merely human state, is the ultimate source and ground of human freedom and human dignity.

Hear these words, O America:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. -- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. . . ."

These principles express the ultimate core of what the next president is pledging allegiance to when taking the oath of office and swearing before America and the entire world political fidelity to the U.S. Constitution. A Constitution whose purpose is what? To enflesh the amazing liberating principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence. And thus is released a spiritual liberty into the world, to be expressed humanely and holistically across all of life, both publicly and privately, including political life.

But it is this spirit of liberty, O America, that Hillary Clinton does not want you to hear or understand or accept. She the secularist rejects the actual and real Creator of the Declaration and instead would impose her politically correct Trinity of Almighty Diversity, Totalitarian Tolerance, and Authoritarian Equality.

That she will unleash her spiritual terror is not a matter of speculation, for she is on record calling for the enforcement of her agenda. "Laws don't count for much if they're not enforced," she proclaimed at the sixth annual Women in the World Summit. What she calls "rights" "have to exist in practice -- not just on paper."

This proclamation is a warning. Hillary Clinton will use "law," law that stands in violation against the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Should Mrs. Clinton assume the White House, you can expect her to begin unleashing spiritual terror upon America and upon the world. Millions upon millions will be impacted grossly and inhumanely. And she will begin immediately.

Donald Trump is the second firefighter in "The Parable of the Three Firefighters." By his own recorded words, he can employ sexually gross language that is very offensive, and he can be gruff on the campaign trail. His flaws are not to be dismissed, and they are not to be minimized in any way.

To be balanced, let us also not dismiss nor minimize that he shows no track record of being someone who wakes up each morning thinking about advancing an extremist vision that is alien to the norms of human freedom and dignity. And for all his gruffness, note that Trump has taken positions that can help quench the flames that are currently threatening to engulf our nation.

On immigration, he wants good people in and bad people out, and he understands that nations without borders are not nations much longer. On destroying pre-born American citizens, he stands against partial-birth abortion. On the economy, he wants to lower taxes, which assists families by helping create jobs.

On the military, he wants to rebuild all branches of the armed forces, which decreases the likelihood of war because bad guys may be crazy but they're not stupid -- few want to take on a strongly armed opponent. "Peace Through Strength" is a valid principle of life, whether we're talking foreign or domestic policy.

Getting rid of Obamacare. Excellent. Getting rid of Common Core and returning education to state and local control. Excellent again -- and a primary strategic move toward breaking that bastion of propaganda currently known as the public schools. This is a generationally positive move that we need to see immediately, if not sooner.

The point is that the gruff firefighter disliked by some of the neighbors happens to be on hand with water in his fire hose. This marks him as qualitatively superior to Hillary Clinton, who has gasoline in her fire hose. With him, the children are saved and so is much of the family's home. With Hillary, the more she helps, the worse things get.

The third firefighter in our parable is Evan McMullin -- or someone like him. McMullin is a former CIA operative whom some people regard as a true conservative, a candidate who most matches their principles, and so on. An alternative to Donald Trump.

For the sake of discussion, let's grant that McMullin (or some other third-party candidate who has recently entered the race) is 100% of what we are looking for in a president.  On all levels, he's everything anyone could want.

There remains a huge problem. As the third firefighter, McMullin is too far away to reach the house in time, and relying on him to get there will result in the destruction of your home and in the irreplaceable loss of your children.

"The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it" (Prov. 27:12). Prudence sees the danger of waiting for McMullin, and prudence says avoid that danger, which can be done because the second firefighter is on hand to do the job.  

Applying this to elections, wise ethical voting means we are responsible not just for inputs (our vote) but also outcomes (the impact of our vote). Ethics is not privatized: It applies not merey to personal choices but also to public results.

With near mathematical certainty we know Hillary Clinton, if elected president, will seek to enact an extreme, inhumane, and harmful agenda. Our own family members may suffer, and perhaps die, as the direct result of her having been elected into office. Just think of inhumane disasters such as Obamacare, illegal alien crime, and Islamic terrorists parachuted into our neighborhoods as "refugees."  

In election 2016, it is clear that a McMullin has zero chance of winning. He's the firefighter "too far away." But by touting him, and encouraging others to do so, some people may thereby enable the election of Hillary Clinton, the firefighter with gasoline in her fire hose.  

It is a certainty that innocent human beings will be killed as the direct result of Hillary Clinton in particular being elected to office, because her inhumane, extremist set of political principles out of their inner essence allow and even encourage the use of human beings as so much meaningless political fodder to be consumed on the road to attaining, maintaining, and expanding political power. And that's just her vision. In addition, her biography includes a well-documented history of pursuing that power selfishly, criminally, and morally corruptly.

What a terrific shame, and what a sad irony, if evangelical Christians by their voting enable such a person to occupy the White House and be positioned to work her will, to have her way, with the American body politic.

Christians would thereby be agents enabling her to unleash spiritual terror not just upon Christians themselves but also upon the whole of America, with grave implications for the world beyond our shores. "Love thy neighbor" means caring how our vote impacts our neighbor's neighborhood, both at home and abroad.

As we stand on the eve of Election Day 2016, the unnatural disaster of a Hillary Clinton presidency is avoidable. I don't mind -- that is, it's understandable -- when people upset with Donald Trump take a swing at him. He's a big guy and seems able to take care of himself. I do mind it when that swing ends up hitting my family and hurting my loved ones.  

Let's vote morally wisely, protect our kids, and elect to live and fight another day. If that third-party guy is good, he'll be back in four years. And so will we.

Election 2016: "Treason" -- Voter Wisdom Needed as Homeland Security Chairman Blasts Hillary Clinton Over Emails

By Rick Pearcey • November 3, 2016, 01:53 PM

Chuck Ross reports at the Daily Caller:

Hillary Clinton likely committed "treason" by using a private email server that U.S. intelligence sources have told Fox News were almost certainly hacked by five foreign spy agencies, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said on Thursday.

Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, made the hefty charge in an interview on "Fox & Friends" in response to news that two sources with knowledge of the FBI's investigation of Clinton's server say that there is a 99 percent chance that Clinton's server was breached.

"She exposed it to our enemies," McCaul, a Republican, said of the classified information found on Clinton's server.

"Now, our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas."

"This is a huge story," McCaul said. "It's far bigger than the accusations against Donald Trump. It goes to the heart of the fitness of character to serve as commander in chief."

Let me suggest that no one concerned about the national security of our nation -- which to the degree that it is compromised and threatened, to that degree places all of us and our families at risk of pain and death -- can vote in a way that enables Hillary Clinton to win the presidency.

This is not abstract. Nor is it speculation. A Hillary Clinton as president is not fixable. Instead, it would be a self-imposed unnatural disaster of potentially the highest order. The real-world pain and destruction is potentially incalculable.

Fortunately, this self-imposed unnatural disaster need not be, for we today are in position to avoid that outcome by simply voting morally wisely between now and November 8.

Rather concretely, that means voting Trump and not voting a third-party candidate. For me, Trump clearly has his weaknesses, and I expect there to be robust give and take on several aspects of his agenda.

On issues such as national security, however, Trump's positions are hardly those of someone who would sell this nation down the river. Unfortunately for us, Hillary Clinton may already have done so. And apparently seems to think all is well.

Let's not even begin to ratify such a grave betrayal by allowing her to capture the Oval Office.

Acting in ways that prevent unnatural disasters is crucial to living morally, wisely, and humanely in a broken world.

Let's keep the light on as much as possible so that we can clean this place up.

Shock! TSA Inspects Pastor's Bible -- And What Voter Wisdom Requires November 8

By Rick Pearcey • November 1, 2016, 06:13 PM

Todd Starnes writes:

The pastor of a Texas megachurch said he was stunned when a government agent stopped him at a TSA checkpoint so his Bible could be inspected.

"I couldn't believe it. I literally couldn't believe it," said Gene Lingerfelt, the pastor of Faith Christian Center in Arlington, Texas.

Situational awareness requires that no one in America today should be stunned that government officials are targeting the Bible and Christians for "special treatment."

Situational awareness also requires realizing that this is the kind of "America" we will get a millionfold if people vote unwisely this presidential election and Hillary Clinton ends up occupying the White House.

You may have noticed in the news lately (for a couple of decades), that there is an extremist, fanatical secularism quite at home in the corridors of power -- from the hollowed halls of Congress (yes, I mean hollowed) to the personally invasive TSA lines at American airports and to so many strategic sectors in American society (Hollywood, the media, academia, the corporate world, and so on).

And if you notice how these folks respond to honest questions, you realize that this secularism is rather cultist -- that is, it operates like the worst kind of anti-intellectual, authoritarian dogma set-up that thinking people and the Biblical information so properly reject.

At the top of the observable political heap of committed secularists stand the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton -- people who are ideologically and politically committed to removing emancipatory Judeo-Christian thoughtforms and social norms from every single strategic sector of American life. These people understand what is at stake, and they move to defend and expand their oppressive vision by all means possible. 

Clinton, Obama, and their multitudes of organized, billionaire-funded followers will push and grab and inspect and take for themselves whatever it is we will allow them to take. They will grab your Bible just as they already are grabbing your money, your land, your children, your words, your conversations, your sermons, and your jobs.

In this comprehensive, visionary, principial, and strategic assault, if it's yours, they want it, they claim it, they take it. All must be inspected and watched and measured to ensure compliance with the endless commandments and regulations emanating outwardly from that monopoly of power concentrated in Washington, D.C.

They will exercise this oppression and inhumanity in the name of various secular mythologies advanced by soothing fables for the weak, such as  "church-state separation," the "right to choose," and "you hurt my feelings." Media and other secularist operatives will do so as well, in the name of blind, vengeful self-righteous obedience to the humanity-denying gods and goddesses of almighty Diversity, totalitarian Tolerance, and authoritarian Equality.

And as we approach November 8, this also needs to be said:

What we see today is nothing -- absolutely qualitatively nothing -- compared to what we may see if Hillary Clinton occupies the Oval Office.

For Mrs. Clinton and her army of allies have been committed for decades to advancing their vision -- which is so totally out of and alien to the American mainstream -- and she will enforce that alien vision with as much power as post-Constitutional political calculations will allow. For many people -- for our friends, our neighbors, our families -- the resulting pain will be incalculable.  

And if previous performance is a reliable guide, we can expect a President Hillary Clinton to strike against those who would defy her will and who have dared speak fact and wisdom to politically correct mythologies and their destructive impact upon everyday Americans.

It is important to realize that her extremist gods and goddesses of secularism demand obedience. They require, as deity substitutes, that all resistance be crushed, destroyed, if not driven out of the land -- first out of the public spaces, and then driven out to the ends of the earth. The U.N. and massive trade deals would be apt vehicles for that.

Thus far Hillary Clinton has been more than willing -- as a matter of fidelity to her idolatrous political ethos -- to sacrifice marriage, morality, freedom, science, and humanness on her journey to self-fulfillment, to secure her rightful place in history, to hold power above all power, and to stay out of jail. And to be the first "woman" president in a gender-identity world where "woman" no longer means anything in relation to objective reality.

It seems to me, therefore, that no thinking or compassionate person would knowingly cast a November 8 vote whose real-world result enlarges the possibility of a Hillary Clinton occupying the White House.

For if that eventuality comes to be, I say again, what we see today is nothing -- absolutely qualitatively nothing -- compared to what we may very well see if Hillary Clinton takes the White House.

If you think that suggests "vote Trump," I agree.

Trump is flawed, and that is not to be dismissed. It is not to be minimized. We must also not dismiss or minimize that he shows no track record of being someone who wakes up each morning thinking about how he's going to attack the foundations of the American republic.

In qualitative contrast, such a destructive commitment is required by Hillary Clinton's extremist secularist vision and politics. On the basis of that vision, a very ugly result out into our society is primarily a matter of her actualizing what are the practical real-world outworkings of the inner secular, post-Constitutional principles to which she is committed.

In the news virtually daily, we see that Hillary Clinton's biography includes a public, governmental record of advancing herself and her politics on the basis of her flaws, including gross criminality while holding high public office.

Perhaps most concerning of all for caring people, America as America simply cannot exist to the degree that someone like Hillary Clinton occupies the White House and is allowed to systematically inject her extremist and alien ideological secularism into the foundations of the American body politic.

Without those solid foundations, it is naive to think America as America can withstand the pressures of external or internal attack. A land once committed to human freedom and dignity in community with God and neighbor (see the Declaration of Independence) will be all too easily tossed by barbarians upon the ash heap of history.

As surely as day is eclipsed by night, to vote in a way that enables Hillary Clinton to land in the office of the presidency is to court profound disaster, beginning the very day the final election returns come in.

By contrast, to vote Trump is to give ourselves, our friends, families, communities, and nation a new day to struggle forward on behalf of human freedom and human dignity.

I say, "vote Trump" not because Trump is the answer -- he's good on some issues, not good on others -- but because the enduring American mainstream points the way (again, see the Declaration of Independence) and the defeat of Clinton buys strategic time to prepare for strategic victory.

Giving a humane American resistance time and space to organize, resist, and overcome is a morally good outcome. Voting against Clinton, against that which principially assures utter defeat if not effectively countered -- in this election and beyond -- is a morally good means to accomplish that morally good outcome.

Hillary Clinton Audio 2006: In Hindsight, "We" Should Have Rigged the Election

By Rick Pearcey • October 31, 2016, 10:46 AM

The Observer has published a report on an "unearthed tape" in which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton can be heard saying the following: 

“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake.

"And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win."

The audio is evidence that Hillary Clinton is comfortable with rigging the outcome of an election.

In other words, the perceived outcome of an election can be a total lie, and Hillary Clinton would be comfortable with that illegal result -- "We should have made sure that we did someting to determine who was going to win."

I would suggest that if someone is willing to rig an election abroad, that same someone may be willing to rig an election at home.

Which means that person may be willing to steal a U.S. election.

To do "something" in the U.S. that would "determine who was going to win" would constitute an illegal transfer of power and would represent gross electoral violence not electoral justice.

That would be a coup d'état ("a change in government illegally or by force") -- which is what may be happening here and now in the U.S., as Peggy Ryan argues at American Thinker.

A free people, a people of dignity, will not stand for this. Phony leaders who espouse rigged elections have no business in public life.

Destroying the foundations of a constitutional republic that attracts people around the world to her borders and shores seems an odd way of making the world a better place.

Megyn Kelly Deserved Newt Gingrich's Smackdown

By Rick Pearcey • October 27, 2016, 10:52 AM

Daniel John Sobieski writes at American Thinker:

Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones, among the many victims of sexual predator William Jefferson Clinton and his serial enabler, Hillary Rodham Clinton, welcomed Newt Gingrich's smackdown of the star of Fox News's The Kelly File on Tuesday night.

As Gingrich pointed out, Kelly, along with other mainstream media talking heads, was beating the Trump Access Hollywood tape into the ground while reciting the Clinton mantra that Bill's sexual assaults while holding public office were "old news" and no longer relevant.

Gingrich rightly felt that Bill's escapades are relevant, as well as Hillary's handling of his "bimbo eruptions" as she looked the other way and rode his coattails to power.

Hillary, along with Kelly, has attacked Trump's attitudes toward women, even as Hillary, apart from being Bill's serial enabler, once laughed about getting the accused rapist of a 12-year-old girl off, and as the Clinton Foundation accepted money from governments and private donors that support sharia law and its serial abuse of women.

As far as we know, Trump has accepted not a single drachma from those who endorse marital rape, the stoning of women for adultery, and other barbarities. Trump versus Bill Clinton?  Close, but no cigar.

Where Clinton and Trump Stand -- on Every Major Issue

By Rick Pearcey • October 26, 2016, 10:31 AM

John Perazzo writes at Frontpagemag.com:

In poll after poll, a majority of American voters have reported that they hold an "unfavorable" opinion of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Nevertheless, there are enormous differences in the policy positions which these two candidates embrace.

Following is a comprehensive overview of exactly what their positions and agendas are, with regard to the major issues confronting the United States.

In some instances, background information is provided in italicized print, so as to place the candidates' positions in proper context.

Go here to see the candidates' positions on the following:

Syrian refugees; immigration, amnesty, and borders; sanctuary cities; 2nd Amendment; Obamacare; healthcare and illegal aliens; ISIS and terrorism; the Supreme Court; voter ID laws; early voting and voter registration; felon voting rights; taxes; death tax and corporate tax; minimum wage; Clinton and the 2008 financial crisis; Social Security; infrastructure spending; school-to-prison; school vouchers; preschool for all; "free" college; partial-birth abortion; taxypayer funding for abortion; reforming criminal justice; releasing "non-violent" offenders; voting rights; climate change; climate change and solar panels; fracking; and gender "pay gap."

Not included in the above is the difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump regarding that species of human freedom specified as "religious freedom." On this, please see, "Hillary Clinton Is No Champion of Religious Freedom: It's Laughable That She Pretends to Be Otherwise. And here, Trump supports Sen. Mike Lee's "Bill to Protect Religious Liberty."

Hillary Clinton Operative "Mr. Fix It" Revealed on "Hannity" Tonight

By Rick Pearcey • October 24, 2016, 03:35 PM

The National Enquirer announces the following:

Hillary Clinton's shady Mr. Fix It will tell all on TV tonight, just days after his explosive confession in the National Enquirer hit the stands.

The man who's rocked Washington, D.C., will join Sean Hannity on tonight's episode of Hannity -- airing on the FOX News Channel at 10 p.m. EST -- to reveal his true identity at last.

According to the Enquirer, "This man played a key role in some of the Clintons' dirtiest schemes: the plot to take down Bill Clinton mistress Monica Lewinsky, sleazy deals to buy women's silence, and so much more."

I may try to view this -- to see if "Mr. Fix It" offers any evidence to support his claims.

Dark & Unaccountable: Debate Offers Frightening Preview of Hillary's America

By Rick Pearcey • October 20, 2016, 01:32 PM

Daniel Greenfield at Frontpagemag.com commends last night's presidential debate for raising "the core issue": What kind of America awaits us in the outcome of this election?

Will we be an America that lives in freedom under the Constitution? Or will we live in bondage under an unaccountable Hillary?

Greenfield writes:

Hillary’s vision of government . . . is dark and unaccountable. From the beginning of the debate, she made it clear that she does not wish to be accountable to the Constitution.

Her email cover up made it painfully clear that she does not want to be accountable to the American people.

Instead Hillary would like everyone in the country to be accountable to her.

A mass of regulations and enforcers will force everyone to be accountable to the dark and unaccountable force in the White House.

Trump, Hillary, and Dishonest Abe

By Rick Pearcey • October 10, 2016, 10:57 AM

George Neumayr writes at American Spectator:

The most spontaneous moment of Sunday's debate came after Hillary Clinton outrageously enlisted the memory of Abraham Lincoln to explain away her penchant for lying.

Trump had the presence of mind to expose her gall in turning "Honest Abe" into a dishonest pol like her. As he delivered that blow, Hillary’s frozen smile turned sour -- a look she gave off during much of the evening.

"It was a night of surprises, starting with Trump's pre-debate press conference featuring women abused by Bill Clinton (along with a lesser known woman, Kathy Shelton, whose rapist Hillary defended).

"Mr. Trump may have said some bad words," Juanita Broaddrick says during the event, according to Newmayr. "But Bill Clinton raped me. And Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don't think there's any comparison."

Neumayr explains that "Kathy Shelton is opposing Hillary because she represented the man who raped her and was caught on tape laughing about how she got him a light sentence despite knowing of his guilt. That tape recording -- in which Hillary brags about her successful defense of the rapist -- has received little to no attention from the media. . . ."

Gingrich: Miss Universe Attack May Blow Up in Clinton's Face -- Video

By Rick Pearcey • September 29, 2016, 11:37 AM

It seems a few details regarding the life and times of Miss Universe Alicia Machado were left out of Hillary Clinton's attack on Donald Trump in their first debate.

"All of a sudden, Machado is a very strange victim to rally the left around, and I think this thing may blow up in Hillary's face," Newt Gingrich tells Sean Hannity on Fox.

3 Problems With Hillary Clinton -- We Cannot Fight "Violence and Terrorism" Without Gun Control

By Rick Pearcey • September 23, 2016, 03:00 PM

A.W.R. Hawkins writes at Breitbart:

In response to questions from AARP Bulletin, Hillary Clinton made clear her position that to be successful, policies for ending terrorism must include gun control for all Americans. [emphasis added]

According to Hawkins, Clinton responded by making the fight against terrorism a part of the fight again "violence":

Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I've laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away their territories so they can’t mastermind attacks from afar.

And she also said, according to Hawkins:

But I'm looking at violence broadly. . . . It's also why I've advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole -- because, you know, it's not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year. . . . We've got to get serious about stemming violence and terrorism in every way we can.

Hawkins notes several weaknesses in Clinton's position.

First, there is the problem of California, which "has comprehensive background checks," Hawkins writes. "Therefore, the state does not have a 'gun-show loophole' or an 'online loophole.' But they did have the December 12, 2015, firearm-based terror attack and the more recent high profile murder-suicide on the UCLA campus on June 1, 2016."

Second, there is the problem of Paris, France, which "has background checks that are even more comprehensive than those in California," Hawkins states. In addition, "Paris has no 'gun-show loophole' or 'online loophole,' but they did have 12 people killed in a January 7, 2015, firearm-based terror attack and another 130 killed in the November 13, 2015, firearm-based terror attack."

Third, there is the problem of Clinton's gun-violence statistics. "Clinton consistently makes the false claim that 33,000 Americans are killed by gun violence each year," Hawkins observes. "She initiated this claim in a political ad that first ran in April. Breitbart News responded by showing 66 percent of the 33,000 deaths cited by Clinton were actually suicides."

Here's how, according to Hawkins, Clinton arrives at her inflated, misleading figure of 33,000. "The overall number of firearm-related deaths in 2013 was approximately 32,888," Hawkins writes. "Of these, the number of accidental deaths was 505, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the number of deaths due to actual 'gun violence' was 11,208."

"When Clinton repeats these numbers, she adds accidental deaths [505] and homicides [11,208] -- which equal 11,713 -- then adds the 21,175 firearm-related suicides," and "rounds the number off at 33,000." Clinton then "names 'gun violence' as the cause for all these things," Hawkins explains.

Hawkins concludes: "This swells the number of gun violence victims in an attempt by Clinton to justify more gun control."

Colin Powell on "Hillary's Mafia"

By Rick Pearcey • September 14, 2016, 09:56 AM

Chuck Ross reports at the Daily Caller:

Retired Gen. Colin Powell believed that "Hillary's mafia" was trying to drag him into the Clinton email scandal, newly leaked emails show. 

According to Ross, "Hacked emails show that Powell warned" Cheryl Mills, "who had served as Clinton's chief of staff, about continuing to link him to the scandal."

"You really don’t want to get me into this," Powell emailed Mills March 7, 2015, Ross reports. "I haven't been asked nor said a word about HRC and won't unless you all start it."

According to Ross, Mills replied by saying, "Agree and that message has been clearly shared . . . . so she will not nor will anyone she controls," Mills said, "adding that 'I can't address folks who are beyond that so please ping or call me when you see anything that worries you'."

Ross explains that "Clinton's campaign and her surrogates have cited Powell's use of a personal AOL account to downplay the former first lady's email practices. But one major difference was that Powell did not host a private email server in his home, as Clinton did. He also used the State Department's classified messaging system to send and receive classified information. Clinton was granted an account on that system but opted not to use it."

Based on this email information, Colin Powell rejected attempts by 'Hillary's mafia" to force his hand, to control him, with regard to Clinton's email scandal.

Well done, Colin Powell.

Trump Surges to 3-Point Lead Over Clinton in LATimes Tracking Poll

By Rick Pearcey • September 13, 2016, 08:58 AM

Joel B. Pollak reports at Breitbart:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump surged to a 3-point lead over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times tracking poll on Tuesday. Trump now leads Clinton 45.8% to 42.8%, his largest lead since Aug. 31 and a 4.4% spike since Sep. 11.

"The improvement in Trump's numbers follows a weekend in which Clinton referred to half of Trump's supporters as a 'basket of deplorables,' and appeared to collapse at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City, raising serious concerns about her health," Pollak reports.

Bill Clinton Panic Button: Slogan "Make America Great Again" Is Racist

By Rick Pearcey • September 8, 2016, 09:16 AM

Charlie Spiering reports at Breitbart:

Former President Bill Clinton ridiculed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his slogan "Make America Great Again" suggesting that it was a false promise to American voters and racially motivated.

"That message, I’ll give you America great again -- If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means," Clinton said.

Pathetic, of course.

But the truth behind it may be this: The Clintons are in panic mode, one of the chief reasons being that "National Poll Shows Donald Trump Surges Among Hispanics, African Americans."

Shock Photos: Hillary Clinton Needs Help on Stairs

By Rick Pearcey • August 8, 2016, 10:36 AM

"In this heated presidential race where being 'fit' and 'stable' have become terms in the arsenal of both campaigns, startling photographs emerged Sunday showing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton apparently getting help in climbing up some stairs," WND reports.

"The photos, published by the Reuters and Getty news agencies, show Mrs. Clinton, 68, receiving help as she tries to ascend a staircase in front of a home. The images were actually taken in February when the former first lady was campaigning for president in South Carolina," according to WND.

As a matter of the public record and objective evidence, there is no doubt that Hillary Clinton -- by any constitutional measure and in matters of truthfulness -- is not fit to be president of the United States.

More than this, her secular, Marxist, statist political philosophy is the antithesis of human freedom and dignity. This can be said without rancor and as a matter of fact and reason, demonstrated in history. It is unfortunate for her, but true.

On top of this, if you read through this article, examine its images and videos, it seems clear that Mrs. Clinton is facing significant physiological and perhaps mental challenges.

One of the videos captures Mrs. Clinton talking with reporters, and in it she appears to lose control of her body -- her head kind of wobbles up and down almost as if in a Hollywood film about demon possession. I had no idea she was facing this kind of difficulty.

Hillary Clinton's state of being needs to be carefully examined. The release of her medical records would be a good start. For her sake. And ours.

Justice Dept Prosecuted 4 Cases Like Hillary Clinton's

By Rick Pearcey • July 7, 2016, 09:04 AM

Garth Kant writes at WND:

U.S. House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., spoke for many when he said, "What bothers me about this is the Clintons really are living above the law. They’re being held by a different set of standards."

The decision by FBI Director James Comey not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information has left even former federal prosecutors wondering if there are two sets of laws: one her and one for everyone else.

"The evidence suggests that may be the case," Kant concludes, citing the prosecutions of former CIA Director John M. Deutsch (appointed by Bill Clinton, 1995), Sandy Berger (former national security advisor under Bill Clinton, former policy advisor to Hillary Clinton), Bryan Nishimura (Navy reservist), and Kristian Saucier (Navy, could see 10 years in jail).

"The System Is Rigged": Trump Responds to FBI Decision Not to Criminally Charge Hillary Rodham Clinton

By Rick Pearcey • July 5, 2016, 01:16 PM

Leah Barkoukis writes:

Despite finding that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was "extremely careless" in her use of a private server, that top secret information was stored, sent, and received on it, and that hostile foreign actors probably gained access to her emails, FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday morning that the agency does not believe criminal charges are appropriate in this case.

Reacting to the news, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump reminded his Twitter followers that the "system is rigged," pointing out that Gen. David Petraeus was punished for far less.

In another Tweet this morning, Trump said, "FBI Director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow!"

Update: My View, From my Facebook page . . . 

The corruption in DC is deep and wide. Anyone who thinks this corrupt system -- Obama, Hillary, the Democrats, the Republican elites, the slavlish, imperialistic, enslaving bureaucrats -- that despises the rule of law and the roots of human freedom is anything but an unmitigated disaster is in for a rude series of cataclysmic awakenings.

There is hope. There is salt and light to be applied and to guide. We are witnessing how lawlessly entrenched are the rigged politics of sleaze in places high and low. Rooting it out to protect new generations from terror without and terror within is clearly the task at hand.

This catastrophe called the federal government is in free-fall. Fortunately, there is no reason on God's good earth that America and Americans need to fall with it.

The Spirit of 1776 lives. It lives not because it is "American" or happened in 1776. It lives because it is rooted in a verifiable vision expressing eternal principles that are publicly actionable in the here and now.

The Declaration of Independence states it pretty well -- this document despised by federal elites even as political mouthpieces are only to happy to co-opt its language for their insidious designs. It is the poison stealing the labelling of the cure.

The America that lives will turn away from the idolatry of the secular elites, the comforting religion of the freedom-haters, the fanatical "faith" of the totalitarians and their extremist corrupt privilege.

The Americans who live will turn to the reason for human dignity, to the rationale for wholistic freedom, to the verifiability of a Creator who acts into history, and to publicly actionable truth that liberates any who would grasp its hand, struggle to stand, and then walk proudly and humbly anew in a once-again great and powerful and compassionate land.

Explosive Video: "Trusted" Google Is Rigging Search Results to Favor Election of Hillary Clinton

By Rick Pearcey • June 10, 2016, 12:56 PM

Allum Bokhari writes at Breitbart:

Earlier this week, we reported on accusations that Google is in cahoots with the Clinton campaign.

Now, an explosive video from SourceFed claims that the company -- which holds a virtual monopoly on search -- is actively altering search recommendations in favour of the presumptive Democratic nominee.

In this video, Matt Lieberman of SourceFed presents evidence (and answers objections) supporting the finding that "Google is burying potential searches for terms that could have hurt Hillary Clinton in the primary elections over the past several months by manipulating recommendations on their site."

The video notes a "stunning number of links" between Google and the Clinton campaign and states that these links "all stem" from "one particular person."

That person, Lieberman explains, is  "Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google's parent company Alphabet, Inc."

Schmidt is "also the former head of Google" and a "major funder of The Groundwork . . . ," which is an "investment by Schmidt to ensure that Hillary Clinton has the technological and engineering prowess to win the election," Lieberman states.

In addition, the Clinton campaign's "chief technology officer" is Stephanie Hannon, who is a "former Google executive."

These connections, Lieberman continues, "showcase a man who has a clear and invested interest in how our country is run and is actively funding one candidate to run it while the company he advises is warping search results in her favor.

Does this warping, this manipulation make any real difference in election outcomes?

"In fact, it really, really does," states Lieberman, citing the research of Dr. Robert Epstein of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (based in Vista, California).

With reference to what is termed "voter manipulation power," Epstein is quoted as saying that "Google could determine the outcome of upwards of 25 percent of all national elections."

"What we have discovered about Google's potential actions is shocking and deeply disturbing," Lieberman concludes. "I no longer have the trust that I once did in the company at large and what they are meant to represent."

Go here to watch Matt Lieberman of SourceFed make the case that Google has been "actively altering search recommendations in favor of Hillary Clinton's campaign."

Sabato Crystal Ball: Electoral College Landslide for Hillary in Trump Race

Cathy Burke reports at Newsmax:

Longtime political analyst Larry Sabato is predicting an electoral college blowout for Hillary Clinton in a November general election matchup with current GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

In the University of Virginia political science professor's "Crystal Ball" prediction, the Democratic presidential front-runner beats Trump 347-191.

"Although a Clinton-Trump matchup could be an 'electoral embarrassment' for the GOP, Sabato writes that because of the political polarization in the country, Clinton would likely take less than 55 percent of the two-party vote," Newsmax reports.

Democrats Not Confident Hillary Can Beat Trump

By Rick Pearcey • January 4, 2016, 08:35 AM

Greg Richter reports at Newsmax:

Some Democrats are losing faith that their presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton can win in a general election fight against Donald Trump, the fierce-tongued GOP front-runner who already has obliterated many of his opponents in his own party.

Early polls indicated Clinton would easily defeat Trump in a November head-to-head matchup, but a more recent Rasmussen poll shows the two in a statistical tie. 

"According to the Washington Times, some of Clinton's supporters still believe she can best a Trump candidacy," Newsmax reports, "but others fear her past provides too much grist for Trump, who already has gone after her husband, former President Bill Clinton, for his past with women, and has said Hillary Clinton is partially to blame for the creation of the Islamic State (ISIS) because of her time as President Barack Obama's secretary of state."

"Um, the Uh, Uh": Hillary Staffer Stammers While Defending Clinton "Videos" Attack on Trump

By Rick Pearcey • December 21, 2015, 10:40 AM

David Rutz reports at FoxNews.com:

Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri struggled Sunday to defend her boss' claim that videos of Donald Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric were being used as recruitment tools for the Islamic State.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Palmieri appeared uncomfortable backing Clinton's claim at Saturday's debate that fact-checkers from the New York Post and PolitiFact have debunked.  

"Um, the uh, uh, you know, Donald Trump, I think, was talking–uh, you know, what Secretary Clinton was saying last night is that one of the many dangerous things about Donald Trump is that, uh, his hot rhetoric, saying we shouldn't allow Muslim refugees into the country, is being used, and this is something that [an international group] has, who monitors social media and uh, on ISIS, has said --" the Clinton staffer is quoted as saying "before Stephanopoulos cut in," according to Fox News.

"But there have been no videos," Fox quotes Stephanopoulos as saying.

"Well, what they have said is that they are using him -- he is being used in social media by ISIS as propaganda," Palmieri reportedly said "sounding almost out of breath." Fox reports.

Hillary Clitnon "didn’t have a particular video in mind, but he's being used in social media, and uh, you know, what they haven't found is the video Mr. Trump keeps talking about, this alleged mystery video of thousands of people in Jersey cheering the collapse of the World Trade Center. But it is true he is being used in social media by, um, ISIS, to, to help recruit and propaganda," Palmieri said, according to Fox.

“But to be clear, you don’t have a video, as she said," Stephanopoulos stated, Fox reports (emphasis added).

Meanwhile, "She's" -- that is, Hillary Clinton's -- "a liar and everybody knows that," Donald Trump said Sunday on Meet the Press, in response to Clinton's accusation made during Saturday evening's Democrat debate, Newsmax reports.

Obama Regime Hating Liberty: America's Soft Tyranny Is Hardening

By Rick Pearcey • October 30, 2015, 06:28 PM

Patricia McCarthy writes at American Thinker:

We are semi-officially a lawless, soft (but hardening) tyranny. How else does one explain Lois Lerner not being charged with the numerous crimes she has most certainly committed? 

As many others have noted, the fix was in as surely as the fix is in on the countless crimes committed by Hillary Clinton and her grubby Clinton Foundation that sells influence at very high prices. Like Lerner, Clinton likely will be deemed above the law by the DOJ and the FBI. 

By way of contrast, "General Petraeus and several others were charged, jailed and/or fined for crimes so minimal compared to Hillary's because they did not toe the Obama line: no deviation from the agenda is allowed, no criticism of the regime will be tolerated," McCarthy observes.

As for "American citizens outside of the protective bubble of the government," they "are not only expendable, they are fodder for bureaucratic abuse," McCarthy writes.

McCarthy concludes with this quote from Montesquieu: "There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice."

Haiti Fraudster Had Line to Clinton at State Department

By Rick Pearcey • September 3, 2015, 08:59 AM

Alana Goodman reports at Free Beacon:

A Clinton donor was granted a $10 million federal loan for a Haiti house-building scam around the day his lobbyist was in contact with Hillary Clinton about the project, emails released by the State Department show.

Lobbyist Jonathan Mantz, who served as Clinton's 2008 finance director, reached out to Clinton with details about his client Claudio Osorio's Haiti house-building efforts in January 2010. The Overseas Private Investment Corporation, a federal agency that works closely with the State Department, was in the process of approving a $10 million loan for Osorio’s company InnoVida around the same time.

"InnoVida later defaulted on the loan and the houses were never built. Osorio, who has contributed to both the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign, is currently serving 12 years in federal prison on fraud charges related to the loan," according to the Beacon.

The Overseas Private Investment Corporation "ended up approving InnoVida's loan request in just two weeks -- although the process typically takes months or years -- and waived a requirement for the company to turn over an audited financial report up-front, according to court testimony from OPIC officials reviewed by the Free Beacon," Goodman reports. [emphasis added]

By Rick Pearcey • August 12, 2015, 11:38 AM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart.com:

Tuesday night the bombshell news hit that Democrat presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton turned over her rogue email server to authorities and that the Inspector General found that, despite Clinton saying the complete opposite was true just a few months ago, two highly classified documents were in fact found in her emails and therefore on an unsecured server located in her New York home.

It is crucial to note that those 2 are only part of a very small sample size of the thousands of emails Hillary turned over.

Nevertheless, in an obvious effort to protect the White House for Democrats, much of the left-wing media (that identifies as objective) are noticeably downplaying and even burying this objectively huge news.

Scarborough: Hillary Clinton "Running Scared" From the Press

By Rick Pearcey • June 3, 2015, 09:40 AM

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of "running scared" from the press Wednesday on Morning Joe.

After a new CNN poll revealed 57 percent of respondents do not find Clinton honest or trustworthy, Scarborough said Clinton couldn’t continue to be fearful of addressing questions about her beleaguered tenure at the State Department.

"At some point, she can’t be horrified of putting a microphone up, standing in front of it and answering everybody’s questions," Scarborough is quoted as saying.

"Until she does that, this campaign doesn’t really feel officially started. She can do all she wants to do, but as long as she’s running scared, and she is running scared right now from the press, until she can stand in front of that microphone and answer those questions, these questions that everybody has are going to continue to loom over her," MSNBC's Scarborough said, according to the Beacon.

Jindal on Hillary's Vision: "It Sounds Like Re-education Camps"

By Rick Pearcey • May 18, 2015, 01:08 PM

Craig Milward reports at CNSNews:

Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal told Fox News' "America's News Headquarters" on Sunday that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sounded like she was pushing for "re-education camps" when she said "deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed" on abortion.

"The reality is first of all you listen to her language -- 'our religious beliefs need to be changed.' It sounds like reeducation camps," CNS quotes Jindal as saying. Clinton "didn't say specifically how she wants us to change our beliefs. My religious beliefs aren't between me and Hillary Clinton. They're between me and God."

According to CNSNews, Jindal also assessed Clinton and the left's "dangerous view" on the meaning of religious expression.

"You hear Hillary Clinton, President Obama, when they say you've got freedom of religious expression," Jindal is quoted as saying.

"For them what that really means is you're allowed to go to church and say whatever you want for an hour or two a week. That doesn't mean you've got the real religious liberty rights our Founding Fathers intended. They intended we should be able to live our lives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, according to our beliefs," Jindal said, according to CNS.

"Our Founding Fathers would never recognize what the left is trying to do," Jindal also said.

In contrast to the the founding ethos, the left is "trying to take God out of the public square. They're trying to make America a much more secular country. They're trying to make faith something that is private, circumscribed, something you've got to put into a corner," Jindal said, according to CNS.

"That's not the America our Founding Fathers would've recognized, not an America our parents would've recognized. It's not an America I hope our children recognize."

Jindal is correct, as should be clearly evident, for example, that the Declaration of Independence publicly actualizes the proposition that human beings are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights."

This is public truth, not private religion.

The Judeo-Christian worldview has been and always will be publicly actionable. And thus it liberates from not just from privatized "faith" but also from inhumane worldviews which themselves seek self-actualization and war against human emancipation.

Elsewhere, I have noted the "reality orientation" that characterizes the Christian mindset and practice. In the Foreword to Nancy's new book, Finding Truth, I write:

Paul argued that argued that the events grounding the Christian worldview were not "done in a corner" (Acts 26:25–26). Shepherds, kings, doctors, and tax collectors could all check out the facts that are central to the Christian message.

What is being communicated is an accurate description of reality, not a belief system about it.

This reality orientation is the positive intellectual climate in which the core propositions and events of the gospel live and breathe. It is a mentality in which people are liberated by verifiable truth to challenge tradition, question power, and fight for life and healing against death and decay.

Despite this auspicious heritage, many of our contemporaries find solace in what Francis Schaeffer describes as an "escape from reason." They accept polite society’s dumbed-down redefinition of faith as something totally privatized -- that is, a commitment so private and so personal that evaluation and evidence are irrelevant.

This is a far cry from the holistic respect for information that characterizes a biblical worldview. Scripture nowhere encourages the notion that "faith" equals commitment quarantined from evidence or isolated from the mind -- the "will to avoid knowing what is true," as the philosopher Nietzsche put it his work The Antichrist.

Instead, the Biblical information challenges people to think more deeply about the basic questions of life, and in fact to "test everything" (1 Thess. 5:21).

In this regard, to carefully examine the basic notions of vocal secularists in our day -- be they a Hillary Clinton, a Barack Obama, a Richard Dawkins, or their disciples on Twitter, Facebook, in Hollywood, on campus, or on the evening news -- is to encounter ideologies that "undercut mind and reasoning, choice and freedom, truth and moral ideals.

"Inevitably, then," I further explain in the Foreword to Finding Truth, "people who place their trust in such solutions begin to order their lives in ways that are less than humane.

"Likewise, cultures in the grip of inadequate worldviews begin to actualize societies that are less than humane.

"Ideologues may advance their idols under politically correct banners of tolerance, diversity, and fairness, but the actual impact is regress, not progress, fragmentation, not wholeness. People are crushed.

"The human being necessarily revolts against gods that fail." This includes human beings who are citizens of the United States of America.

Ted Cruz: Stephanopoulos a "Partisan" Democrat "Actively Supporting" Hillary Clinton

By Rick Pearcey • May 15, 2015, 09:01 AM

"Sen. Ted Cruz told reporters on Thursday that ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos is a 'partisan Democrat' who is 'actively supporting' former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign," Matthew Boyle reports for Breitbart news.

"Of course not," Cruz said Thursday when he was "asked if Stephanopoulos should be hosting any debates in 2016," Boyle reports.

"Debates should not be moderated by partisan Democrats who are actively supporting one of the candidates," Cruz said, according to Boyle.

ForAmerica Targets "Unelectable" Jeb Bush in New Ad . . . Update: Watch the Video

By Rick Pearcey • May 13, 2015, 01:38 PM

Melanie Batley reports at Newsmax:

A conservative group is launching an ad against former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, tying him to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and branding him "unelectable."

According to The Hill, ForAmerica will launch the one-minute Web ad Wednesday in early voting states, where the group says it has a "massive digital and social media network."

The five-figure ad will appear in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada as well as Florida, Maine, Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri.

"Almost all Republicans understand Hillary Clinton would make a terrible president," the text from the ad states, "All except one," according to Newsmax.

"The ad then cuts to Bush presenting an award to Clinton in 2013 and thanking her for her public service," Newsmax reports.

"Mr. Bush is unelectable, and there are several better options for conservatives and Republicans if they want to win in 2016. Period," The Hill quotes ForAmerica chairman Brent Bozell as stating.

"By heaping praise on Hillary Clinton, Mr. Bush has handed her the ammo to bury him . . . and she will," Bozell said, according to The Hill. "No other potential GOP nominee has that fatal disadvantage."

5/14/2015 update: You can view the ad here.

First Hillary Clinton's Finances, Next Jeb Bush's

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2015, 08:57 AM

Breitbart reprints the following from a story first appearing in Politico:

The author raising questions about whether Hillary Clinton gave special treatment to foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state is looking into the finances of another 2016 presidential hopeful: Republican Jeb Bush.

Peter Schweizer said Sunday on ABC’s This Week that over the past four months he’s also been looking into the former Florida governor’s dealings in what could serve as a follow up to Clinton Cash, which has caused headaches for the democratic hopeful.

Specifically, Schweizer said he was investigating Bush’s land and airport dealings along with certain financial transactions with hedge funds in what he said would be a "similar mode" to his look into Clinton.

Hillary: "Religious Beliefs" Must Change for Sake of Abortion Rights

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2015, 08:05 AM

Kerry Picket reports at the Daily Caller:

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a feminist tone on Thursday. She told attendees at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit that "deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed" for the sake of giving "access" to women for "reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth."

"Far too many women are denied access to reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth an laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice -- not just on paper," Clinton said.

"Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will," Clinton is quoted as saying. "And deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.

"As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone -- and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States,” Clinton said, according to the Daily Caller.

Group: Jeb Bush "Unelectable" After Giving Medal to Hillary Clinton

By Rick Pearcey • February 20, 2015, 08:58 AM

Ken McIntyre writes at the Daily Signal:

A conservative group’s new online ad portrays Jeb Bush as "unelectable" to the presidency because the Republican presented a public service award to the Democratic favorite, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Clinton received the award, the video emphasizes, on Sept. 10, 2013 -- one day short of the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead and stained her legacy as secretary of state.

"The group ForAmerica released the one-minute video this morning. ForAmerica is one of several Virginia-based educational nonprofits run by L. Brent Bozell III, perhaps best known for heading the Media Research Center," according to the Daily Signal.

"It’s bad enough that Hillary Clinton will likely use footage from this event against any Republican nominee," Bozell reportedly said to the Daily Signal. "But if Jeb Bush is her opponent, she will make him look ridiculous."

"The Daily Signal has sought comment from a Bush spokeswoman, but she has not responded," McIntyre reports.
