“You come in here, brandish your little book as if I don’t know what’s in there--” “My little book? That’s the Constitution of the United States. It’s our founding document, Piers.” “I know what’s in your Constitution.” “Do you really?” That was the climax of a heated debate between Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro and CNN’s Piers Morgan on live television this evening--one in which Morgan came off much the worse for wear.
God bless Ben Shapiro and keep him safe, together with those like him. I wish there were more young people like this. I loved it when he smacked down that pompous Brit who thinks that "How dare you" gives him the moral high ground.
May God visit his justice on Morgan and each and every on like him.
...a job well done by Ben, exposing the inner bully of Piers Morgan...
...Morgan is trying to ride this story to better ratings I´m sure. He seems to be stuck toward the bottom with the other dung beetles. He should consider heading back to his old job in England, bugging celebraty phones...
Shapiro stated the reason for the second amendment is a real concern about government tyranny as Hitler and Stalin created not hunting as the left always claims the founders intended. Shapiro defined the argument and left Piers dumbfounded. Well done, Ben.
This is the first and last time I´m going to watch Piers Morgan. Ben Shapiro just proved that logic and a command of the facts can be used as a very effective weapon, too. Piers didn´t even bring a sharp stick to this fight.
How old is Shapiro? The kid has a brilliant future.
As for Pukes, it wasn´t too bad until the end, when he got very nasty, and timed it perfectly so he could get in the last word. And this was with a guy was was passionate and reasonable, unlike that crazed lunatic that was on the other day.
Any movie that casts Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan certainly has a piquant sense of humor, but the prankishness of “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” — so named after a title dispute with the MPAA — undermines the serious statements this star-spangled film is striving to make about race, class and politics. Along with missing the movie’s ever-migrating point, viewers may be forgiven for wondering whether “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” might have been titled “Lee Daniels’ Forrest Gump” — its hero challenged morally rather than mentally, but watching history in Gumpian fashion, as a series of cameos viewed through a slightly
Chef Julia Child would have turned 101-years-old on this day. The American chef is known for bringing French cuisine to American in a way that was simple enough to understand. Good Morning Texas spoke to a chef at a French style restaurant located in Cedar Hill about Child´s influence on French cooking. "When I first got started, I never actually went through culinary training," said Aaron Gros, Eclair Bistro chef. " I learned my basics studying cookbooks. The first book which I actually used is Julia Child´s cookbook."
In December of 2008, David Gregory took over as the permanent host of NBC´s "Meet the Press," the then-41-year-old current affairs show and longest running program on network television. Over two years later, Gregory was in first place and even drawing the same number of viewers as his predecessor, Tim Russert. The beginning of Gregory´s ratings fall would finally arrive in May of 2011, when Gregory accused Newt Gingrich of racism for using the words "food stamps" in reference to President Obama. With all the talk about Meet the Press losing its first place standing and hitting ratings lows not
NEW YORK- Kurt is a 32-year-old IT systems administrator from Des Moines, Iowa. He has a colleague who had been prescribed "ridiculous amounts" of Vicodin for a chronic back problem. His colleague offered him some of the pills. Soon Kurt was taking them three to four times a week to get high and relax. "I had been prescribed Vicodin before so I knew the effects," he said. "I would come home, take a couple and pour myself a drink, to help me unwind." He is not alone. One in 10 Americans admit taking a prescription drug they have not been prescribed,
Washington- The White House has started installing solar panels on the first family residence as part of an energy retrofit that will improve the efficiency of the building, a White House official said on Thursday. President Obama in 2009 directed federal agencies to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy, and in late 2010 pledged to put solar panels on the White House. It is not the first time a solar system has been installed on the White House roof. President Jimmy Carter put panels up in 1979, but they were removed in 1986 during roof repairs made
They´ve been keeping a low profile at the Middletons´ Bucklebury mansion ever since the birth of their baby son George on 22 July, but now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are slowly edging their way back into the limelight. Although Kate has stayed at home minding the third-in-line to the throne (helped by her parents Carole and Michael), Prince William has nipped out to attend a public polo match and, yesterday, the Anglesey Show, where he briefly discussed how he is enjoying fatherhood. And now he has given his first full interview since the birth of Prince George, described
Major League Baseball is prepared to greatly increase its use of instant replay, with a proposal advancing that would give each manager three challenges per game if approved. Owners attending quarterly meetings in Cooperstown, N.Y,, were briefed on the proposal put together advanced by a committee including Joe Torre, John Schuerholz and Tony La Russa, which would be placed into effect in 2014. Almost all calls except the strike zone would be subject to review if MLB can gain approval of the players union and umpires union prior to a vote by owners in November. Commissioner Bud Selig hailed the
We’ve been laughing at our presidents — and presidential candidates — almost as long as we’ve been voting for them. Long before Rich Little “socked it to” Richard Nixon on “Laugh-In” and Darrell Hammond impersonated Bill Clinton on “Saturday Night Live,” political cartoonists during the Civil War mocked Abraham Lincoln by drawing him as an ape. “There is a way to do it and a way not to do it,” said Brent Mendenhall of Nevada, Mo., who made a full-time living until 2009 as a George W. Bush look-alike and impersonator.
August is supposed to be a slow and sleepy time for the White House, but this year isn´t turning out quite that way. In fact, the idea that nothing much ever happens in government during the dog days of August is really a myth. Beyond the decisions that President Obama is making on domestic spying, the crises in Egypt and Syria, and how to bypass a recalcitrant Congress on economic and other issues, one particular event on Obama´s schedule will make this month an important one all by itself. He is set to give an address on Aug. 28 to
The death toll from Egypt´s wave of violence on Wednesday climbed to at least 525, fueling anger and deepening the political cleavages in the Arab world´s most populous nation. Cairo´s streets were mostly calm Thursday morning in neighborhoods not affected by the previous day´s clashes, which were sparked when Egypt´s military regime brutally cleared Muslim Brotherhood protests in Cairo. But later Thursday, Brotherhood leaders called on their supporters to regroup in protest despite a military curfew set to go into effect at dusk, fueling tensions over the possibility of renewed conflict. An hour before the 7 p.m. curfew, Brotherhood supporters
In a lengthy indictment of President Barack Obama, two best-selling authors argue in a forthcoming book that the current occupant of the White House has committed numerous ´high crimes and misdemeanors´ that could justify his impeachment and removal from office. ´Consider this book to be ... a blueprint for drafting articles of impeachment,´ author Aaron Klein told MailOnline, which exclusively reviewed a copy of his ´Impeachable Offenses,´ a book co-authored with Brenda Elliott and due out August 27. ´It is up to the public and ultimately up to to their elected representatives,´ he said, ´to decide what to do next.´ Obama´s
The daredevil who parachuted into the London 2012 Olympic ceremony dressed as James Bond wrote ´First trip here to fly and loving it´ on his Facebook page just days before he was killed. Mark Sutton, 42, died when he crashed into a mountain ridge after jumping out of a helicopter wearing a wing-diving suit in the Swiss Alps. He jumped with a friend from a height of 10,826ft (3,300m) at around 11am yesterday and planned to land in a field close to the hamlet of Le Peuty, near Trient. Jean-Marie Bornet, of the Valais police service, said his injuries were
President Obama asserted the unilateral power to "tweak" inconvenient laws in last Friday´s news conference, underscoring his Administration´s increasingly cavalier notions about law enforcement. So it´s good that the judiciary—a coequal branch of government, in case the Administration forgot—is starting to check the White House. In a major rebuke on Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an unusual writ of mandamus, which is a direct judicial order compelling the government to fulfill a legal obligation. This "extraordinary remedy" is nominally about nuclear waste, writes Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the 2-1 majority, yet the case "raises significant questions about the
President Obama´s former personal aide said Wednesday that the president was so "irritated" by controversy over his birthplace that he wanted to hold an "impromptu press conference" when he discovered the long-form version of his birth certificate, only to be dissuaded by his advisers. Reggie Love, the former body man to the president, told UCLA´s Luskin School of Public Affairs that the delay in producing the president´s birth certificate was because when "your parents don´t live together (and) you travel all over the world, documents get lost." "He wanted to just have an impromptu press conference, just walk in to
Oprah Winfrey says she´s kinda sorta "sorry" for the fallout that ensued after she told the media about a "racist" encounter at a purse store in Switzerland ... saying, "I´m really sorry that it got blown up." Yeah, right. Oprah addressed the media at the premiere of "The Butler" in L.A. last night -- backpedaling after the shop in question started to refute O´s allegations of racism during an incident last month. The shop owner says the whole thing was a "misunderstanding" and had "nothing to do with racism." Last night, Oprah said ... "I think that incident in Switzerland."
Questions have been raised over financial dealings within the Clinton family charity that may cause problems for Hillary Clinton´s possible 2016 presidential run. New reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity. Former President Bill Clinton called in a team of lawyers to help examine the charity´s financial standing over a year ago and they drew some unsettling conclusions. A scathing article in The New York Times tells how the ´rotating board
Soon after the 10th anniversary of the foundation bearing his name, Bill Clinton met with a small group of aides and two lawyers from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. Two weeks of interviews with Clinton Foundation executives and former employees had led the lawyers to some unsettling conclusions. The review echoed criticism of Mr. Clinton’s early years in the White House: For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and
The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama’s face and mocked with the crowd: Do you want to see a bull run down Mr. Obama? The NAACP says the clown was guilty of inciting violence against the president. In a statement reported by Breitbart, the NAACP’s state president, Mary Ratliff, wrote: “The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our president are serious and warrant a full
There is no way to sugarcoat it: Egypt stands on the brink of a bloody, nasty civil war, and, at the very least, sustained civil unrest and sectarian violence. The current confrontation between the Egyptian military and radical Islamists — led by the Muslim Brotherhood — will not end well and the MB and its allies will not go quietly. The Brothers — the original modern Islamic terror group and the ideological source of both al-Qaeda and Hamas — are in no mood to negotiate or compromise. Think about it: After decades of patience, stealth, and gradualism,
In the wake of a rodeo clown’s anti-Obama skit this weekend, the Missouri State Fair is forcing all clowns to undergo sensitivity training. The state fair commission voted Monday to ratify the decision to ban the clown in question who wore an Obama mask as the rodeo announcer asked if the crowd wanted to see him get run down by a bull. The crowd enthusiastically approved, according to local media reports. But the state commission went further, saying it will require that before the Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to
Reggie Love says he and President Obama played cards during the Osama bin Laden raid, and that the president told him, "I can´t watch this entire thing." (Snip for video)"“Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,’ We must have played 15 games of spades,” said Love at a public event. Love was Obama´s "body man," and spent much time with his boss while he worked for Obama at the White House.
The only surprise here is the source. The details are all too familiar: Employers around the country, from fast-food franchises to colleges, have told NBC News that they will be cutting workers’ hours below 30 a week because they can’t afford to offer the health insurance mandated by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. “To tell somebody that you’ve got to decrease their hours because of a law passed in Washington is very frustrating to me,” said Loren Goodridge, who owns 21 Subway franchises, including a restaurant in Kennebunk. “I know the impact I’m having on some of
Over the weekend, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is “for big government and trying to go along to get along.” She added that Christie has “got a schtick going there where he’s got a YouTube videographer following him around, kind of these set-up situations sometimes so he can be seen as perhaps a little bit avant-garde and going rogue on things.” Christie said nothing in return. He should. Here’s why.Taking on Palin is good politics for Christie or Jeb Bush or anyone else who is planning to run as a quasi-establishment candidate for president in
The Missouri State Fair will force rodeo clowns to complete sensitivity training after a clown mocked President Obama in a stunt one spectator likened to a Ku Klux Klan rally. The fair’s commission also approved a lifetime ban on the offending clown. The controversy began on Saturday at the fair in Sedalia. A clown in an Obama mask with a broom handle attached to his backside moved into the arena as another clown called out over the microphone, “This bull’s going to get’cha, Obama! He’s gonna get’cha!” The fair commission has called the stunt “unacceptable,” and approved a measure that would
