Jeff Allen takes aim at President Obama in opening monologue
Rick Santorum, Mia Love, and Dana Loesch encourage conservatives to start finding solutions themselves
Millions of Americans continue to suffer economically and more Americans are dying overseas (2 more died today in Algeria, where terrorists have taken over a gas field) but that’s not stopping President Obama from celebrating himself today! But what about all those people who weren’t invited? Those the President deems ‘enemies’ of progress? Glenn has the antidote – the first annual Misfit Ball! Don’t miss it tonight at 5pm!

There was no shortage of disappointment this week as two of the most beloved national figures took a mighty fall from grace.
America mourned & cheered with Manti Te’o only to find out the entire story was a complete hoax. And, to add to that kick in the stomach, Lance Armstrong confirmed what many have suspected for years — he too was a complete and total fraud.
As these stories broke they were met by ample commentary from fans and foes on social media:
How could this happen? They were one of the good guys! I never saw that one coming!
That was followed by some good old fashioned anger and defiance:
‘I’m never going to believe in anyone ever again! My faith in humanity is lost!’
It seems that every time someone comes along with the slightest glimmer of promise, and our faith is restored that sometimes the “good guys” do finish first. And then they fall, lose their “good guy” status, and get thrown in the “dirtbag” category with the others.
And so it goes, the vicious cycle of hope fails continues.
Why do we keep getting let down? Here’s my thesis: (Warning! Faith-in-humanity spoiler alert!) There are no good people on the planet. Not even one.
We desperately want to believe that there’s at least at least one left. But the reality is we are merely a collection of broken & flawed souls who are trying to do our best, but are inherently incapable of doing so.
Here’s a pro-tip from President Obama:
When your political argument is guaranteed to fail under an ounce of scrutiny, be sure to bring out the kids. Lots and lots of cute, smiling, innocent little children.
Why would anyone do something so distasteful as to use one of the most violent acts in our history as a tool to pass legislation that merely ties the hands of law abiding citizens? As we saw with Obamacare, and the new gun regulations that were passed yesterday, because not only does it work, it silences your opposition.
As usual, the president’s fan club (aka the mainstream media) has failed to see how repulsive his tactics are in abridging the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans while surrounding himself with innocent children. The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary could easily be described as one of the most traumatic and disturbing violent acts to take place in America since 9/11. And yesterday, the president used that emotion to silence his detractors and inflame that emotion while presenting 23 new gun restrictions yesterday to the American people.
“Normally, the only time you see politicians showcasing children is during the campaign,” Carol Costello said when opening a segment on this issues yesterday on CNN.
Think about that. The only time you normally see children “showcased” is during campaigns. Why is that? Because they’re used as a tool to get votes, make politicians more friendly and appealing, or avoid conflict.
Republicans have been throwing the ‘I’ word around in the halls of Congress recently. But has President Obama gone so far off the rails that he has warranted an impeachment trial? Blaze Radio host Jay Severin talks with the NRA President about just how far over the line Obama has gone.
It’s still early, but this live-action, shot-for-shot full-length recreation of “Toy Story” is the definite frontrunner for the coolest thing you will see all week.
You read that right: Jonason Pauley and Jesse Perrotta have been working since 2010 to recreate the entire animated Pixar classic with real people and real toys, using a combination of stop-motion photography and puppet strings, all set to the actual “Toy Story” audio track. They posted their completed hour-and-20-minute film on YouTube Saturday.
