    To support his insane interpretation of the post-Civil War amendments as granting citizenship to the kids of illegal aliens, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is now taking job applications for the nonexistent -- but dearly hoped-for -- Jeb! administration, live, during his show. (Apparently my debate with O'Reilly will be conducted in my column, Twitter feed and current bestselling book, Adios, America, against the highest-rated show on cable news.) Republicans have been out of the White House for seven long years, and GOP lawyers are getting impatient. So now they're popping up on Fox News' airwaves, competing to see who can...

    Bush will continue to pander to illegal alien voting blocs with his blarney on birthright citizenship under the 14th amendment, and O’Reilly will continue to hide propaganda in his nightly 8 p.m. bloviating Taking his signature surefire aim, talk show radio host Mark Levin zapped the man he so colorfully nicknames “the 8 PMer” with a slingshot last night. In fact, Levin took out the proverbial two birds with one stone by zapping both ‘8 PMer’ Bill O’Reilly and presidential hopeful Jeb Bush on their carefully crafted lies on “birthright citizenship” under the 14th amendment. Most folk have come to...

    Given the "failures" of the Obama election, Republicans can only lose in 2016 if "they out-extreme the far-left" On “The O’Reilly Factor” Thursday night, host and new favorite Coulter punching bag Bill O’Reilly expounded on the difference between “Trumpians” and Democrats, and warned Republicans that the real estate mogul’s brand of undisciplined extremism could hurt the party whose nomination he currently seeks. After rattling off the predictable litany of Republican complaints about Obama’s economic and foreign policies — the suggestion being that Democratic party is weak on both fronts because of the president’s reckless, ignorant actions — O’Reilly claimed that...

    Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been...

    Fox News host Bill O'Reilly during an interview Tuesday night repeatedly challenged a key portion of Donald Trump's immigration agenda. The real-estate magnate and Republican presidential candidate recently unveiled his multipart plan to clamp down on illegal immigration. Among other things, Trump called for ending birthright citizenship, or the right of anyone born in the US to American citizenship. As O'Reilly pointed out, however, the US Constitution's 14th Amendment enshrines birthright citizenship into US law. "That's not going to happen because the 14th Amendment says if you're born here, you're an American," O'Reilly said. "And you can't kick Americans out....

O’Reilly said his “tip of the day” of the day was, “The media despising Donald Trump, and here’s why: He has no fear, he could not care less about censoring himself, and the press does not intimidate him.” He continued, that the media feel the need to “punish” Trump for being “disrespectful and not cowering before them.”

    All the negative press Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing lately is the result of a national press out to get him and "not looking out" for the American public. That's according to Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly. On his show Tuesday, O'Reilly said Trump is getting a raw deal from the national press because he isn't "cowering before them." "He has no fear," said O'Reilly, who has been known to attend sporting events with Trump. "He could not care less about censoring himself and the press does not intimidate him. So because of that approach, the media believe...

Her killer admitted in a jailhouse interview that he went back to San Francisco because he knew he wouldn't be turned over to federal authorities thanks to sanctuary city policies. Monday night on the O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly didn't mince words when addressing the issue and holds San Francisco city officials and the Obama administration complicit in Steinle's death. O'Reilly also called on Congress to pass a law mandating five years in federal prison...

    BILL O'REILLY: All the polls say the same thing. Americans who identify themselves as conservative outnumber liberals by about two to one. Yet, social power has shifted to the left wing precincts. The reason? Organization. The far left is dominating the Internet, the entertainment industry, including the journalistic media. Outside of talk radio and Fox News there are few non-liberal voices heard nationwide. The intensity of the far left is almost frightening. Many of these people will do almost anything to destroy their opposition. So conservative Americans find themselves somewhat demoralized as they see the Supreme Court siding with the...

During that monologue, O’Reilly pointed to examples of individuals overcoming race to succeed, but noted there are those who insisted on criticizing the nation nonetheless.

O’Reilly has been so “wounded” by a widespread, concerted campaign to portray him as Brian Williams’ doppelganger and to get him kicked off the air that he is up 41 percent from the same month of May last...

    In a series of comments written on YouTube earlier this month, Jeremiah Perez, under the name 'Vets Hunting Cops,' threatened violence against a variety of politicians, celebrities and police officers, the Smoking Gun reported Wednesday.

    In mid-November, conservative news outlets posted multiple videos of Jonathan Gruber, an MIT health economist who worked on Romneycare and Obamacare, crediting the "stupidity" of American voters as one reason that the health law passed. The videos were not flattering for Gruber; Democrats have moved quickly to distance themselves. And, perhaps more consequentially, they have breathed new life into the Obamacare opposition effort. Today, the House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing with Gruber titled "Examining Obamacare Transparency Failures." ... Here'a a quick guide to who Jonathan Gruber is, why he's at the center of this controversy, and what it...
  • President Obama Changing The Rules On Illegal Immigration (O'Reilly's "Humane" comment bites back?

    Bill O'Reilly (The O'Reilly Factor) ^ | 6/15/2012 | Bill O'Reilly
    In a very political move, the president has announced new rules for a specific group of illegal aliens. If your parents brought you to America when you were under 16, if you have completed high school, or served in the military, and if you are under the age of 30 now, then you are most likely going to stay in America. ... As for the policy, how can you blame kids when they are dragged to the US? It's not the child's fault that laws were broken. Thus the new policy is humane, and the President believes it will make...

    On his Fox News show Thursday night, host Bill O'Reilly cited the Media Research Center study on the network evening newscasts censoring coverage of the 2014 midterms: "Eight years ago, the nightly network newscasts went full out to cover the campaigns, which Democrats were favored to win....But this time around, the graph is far different. At this point in time, ABC News did 36 election reports eight years ago. So far this year, zero, nothing. CBS, 58 in year 2006. 14 this year. NBC, 65 eight years ago. 11 this year. Simply stunning."
  • BOR on Canadian Terrorism

    I just watched Bill O'Reilly and I am reminded again why I don't watch the bloviating bastard. What an arrogant take on the two terrorist attacks in Canada this past week. He is so insulated in NYC that he has no perspective on America or our neighbors. I doubt if he has traveled to Canada recently, if ever. The story that isn't being told is what we have in common with our neighbors. 1.) Our cities are crawling with Muslims. 2.) There is no opposition to Islam in our two countries due to political correctness. 3.) Islamists, not just Islamic...

    Bill O'Reilly had a little fun at Karl Rove's expense on Monday night. While appearing on "The O'Reilly Factor" from Las Vegas, Rove whipped out his whiteboard to drive home some points about the upcoming midterm election. When the political strategist finished, O'Reilly warned him not to bring the whiteboard into the casinos. "I don't gamble," Rove said. "With your prediction record, that's a wise move," O'Reilly cracked. "Y'know that was personal and petty," Rove said. "That was personal and petty." "That's me," said O'Reilly. "P and P."

    Here we go again. While most Republicans cringe at the very thought of another Mitt Romney campaign, for some reason Bill O’Reilly is sure he’s going to the nominee again, and Ann Coulter responds heartily, “I HOPE so!!!’

    Bill O’Reilly spent a significant part of his first segment tonight decrying the “racism” accusations being thrown by some MSNBC commentators amidst nationwide Ebola panic. O’Reilly did not directly call out MSNBC in his Talking Points Memo, but it was very clearly aimed at them, since he had teased the segment with a clip of Alex Wagner saying some Republican comments on Ebola, including calling for a travel ban is “not even thinly-veiled racism.” And that wasn’t the first time someone on MSNBC had invoked racism in talking about a travel ban; a guest on Melissa Harris-Perry‘s show did so...

    Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly came down hard on Hollywood’s Ben Affleck for comments he made in defense of Islam on a recent television appearance, saying the actor is living in denial. Mr. O'Reilly made the remarks while discussing the recent trade of barbs between Mr. Affleck and HBO host Bill Maher, when the former called the latter “racist” and “gross” for saying that liberals are closing their eyes to the dangers of radical Islam. Mr. O'Reilly then reminded how children in the Middle East were cheering in the streets in the days that followed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist...
