Doral, Florida - Judge Jeanine Pirro is a star of “The Five” show Mondays through Fridays @ 5:00 pm on Fox News. This show is the most watched cable news program in America, with over three million daily viewers. There she plays the role of the tough conservative woman lawyer, first created by Kimberly Gilfoyle. Judge Jeanine is a former judge in the courts of the State of New York, a former District Attorney in Westchester County, New York, and an unsuccessful Republican candidate in 2006, first for the United States Senate against Hilary Clinton, then she withdrew from that race, and instead ran for Attorney General of the State of New York against Andrew Cuomo. She is known for her sharp wit and ability to throw rhetorical punches from the right wing.
Before joining “The Five,” she hosted, for a decade, a top-rated show every Saturday night on Fox News, “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” She is also a prolific and best-selling author, and her latest book, published this year, is Crimes Against America: The Left’s Takedown of Our Republic. Last Saturday, August 26, in the morning she spoke to at least 280 Republicans in Miami-Dade County, including a large contingent from the Miami Springs Republican Club.
Judge Jeanine’s speech followed the theme of her latest book, and started by asking: “What has happened to America?” In response, she cited an observation made by Abraham Lincoln in 1838 at a speech in the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln concluded that the American republic can only be destroyed from within: “If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
She stated that “we are no longer an exceptional nation. There has been a breach to our sovereignty” from all the illegal aliens pouring through our open borders as a policy of the current administration, led by a President in decline. The only RICO prosecution in America should not be conducted by the District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, but by a federal prosecutor of the Biden Crime Family. These prosecutions against Trump are “an intentional takedown of our country,” and they will do anything to stop him from winning re-election.
She took hope from the billions of dollars lost by Anheuser-Busch and Target, because it means that ordinary people are waking up to the excesses of woke progressive ideology. The next presidential election really is the most important, because it could lead to the destruction of the middle class, religion, schools and our freedom of speech. She praised the job done by Nikki Haley in the debate last week, and she would like to see Haley and Vice President Kamala Harris in a debate.
Judge Jeanine also observed that the response by the administrative state to the January 6 Capitol riot sent a clear message. That message is that the “system of injustice” is willing to arrest and imprison people without due process of law. Nevertheless, we should not give up, because we must stop the left’s attempt to destroy America.
Her speech, however, was limited by the constraints imposed by her employer, Fox News. Accordingly, she was not free to say that: (1) the presidential election of 2020 was rigged and stolen due to lax election integrity standards; (2) the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021 was mostly a false-flag operation conducted by the administrative state; and (3) Donald Trump is the only presidential candidate in 2024 that stands for preserving our liberty under the rule of law against the totalitarian tyranny of the administrative state and the Biden Crime Family. During her speech, people in attendance shouted “Trump! Trump! Trump!” but she barely acknowledged them. Murdoch is watching.
Speakers like Judge Jeanine and potentially others, like Senator Rick Scott, represent a useful opportunity to rally the Republican base in Miami-Dade County. Nevertheless, these speaking engagements neglect work that needs to be done with respect to: (1) promoting election integrity at all levels; and (2) registering more Republican voters, which now stand in third place behind not only Democrats, but also Unaffiliateds.
