Progressive Leftists can’t stop losing because they care more for ideological purity than they do for actual winning, according to David Leonhardt in the New York Times. In the wake of the apparent collapse of Bernie Sanders’ democratic-socialist campaign, are Americans “profoundly Progressive” but just haven’t found a candidate who inspires them? Or are they much more centrist than the panjandrums of statism proclaim?
Justin Timberlake blanks on his own lyrics after dodging urine bottle projectile. China lies like crazy about coronavirus. Topics from the strange to the serious on this latest episode of Stephen Green’s Right Angle Lightning Round, with Bill Whittle and Scott Ott. Imagine seeing this show live, on-board a magnificent Royal Carbbean cruise ship, sailing […]
An objective observer would think the Democrat presidential candidates are committing electoral suicide after their performances in recent debates. On guns, climate, immigration, health care and more, they’ve staked out extreme Progressive positions which will dog their eventual nominee in the general election contest. Will even one candidate get off the Left-wing crazy train before it goes completely off the rails?
Democrat Presidential candidate Rep. Beto O’Rourke drew a huge cheer at the last debate when he said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47…” Let’s imagine that the Texas lawmaker miraculously gets to the White House and attempts to keep that promise. Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green game it out.
Democrat Congressman James Clyburn, SC, says he doubts the Bill of Rights would pass in 2019, because he meets many people who want to uproot it.

National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre comes under fire for lavish spending on his own luxurious lifestyle, and board Members depart. Is there a reasonable, work-related justification, for LaPierre’s $5 million mansion? What happens when a principle-based organization grants unchecked authority to a single individual?
In the wake of mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, as Republicans move toward backing a national “red flag” law to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill, Bill Whittle Now asks “who decides?” What if the new law targets you, and the federal government comes to take your guns away? Before your representative votes, he should watch this video.
Why would the NRA fight against a Texas law to spend $1 million on a campaign designed to promote safe gun storage? And how is it possible that the National Rifle Association lost a battle…against Republicans? Bill Whittle analyzes the risks inherent in the proposed new law.
Billionaire Mark Cuban solves the 2nd Amendment debate with a little editing. Your federal government guarantees your right to keep and bear arms, while your state regulates that gun ownership. What could be wrong with a solution that respects our federated republican form of government, and guarantees your right to own a gun?
Former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens says the worst decision of his life was the court’s DC v. Heller ruling, which recognized the individual right to keep and bear arms. Of course, Stevens voted with the minority in Heller. In a new book, he says he’s still convinced the framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights meant to protect gun rights only for use in organized militias. Bill Whittle mansplains to Stevens the meaning of a simple English sentence known as the 2nd Amendment.
Counties in New Mexico and elsewhere joining the 2nd Amendment sanctuary movement to escape stricter gun control from state lawmakers, have unintentionally fallen into a trap set by Progressives. Bill Whittle makes the connection between these well-intentioned efforts and so-called “free speech zones.”
A Black security guard stops a shooter at a night club, undoubtedly saving lives. Police arrive and shoot him dead. Do conservatives really want inner-city folks armed for their own safety, or does that simply paint another target on them? Is the 2nd Amendment color blind, or do parents now need to have “the talk” […]
