Fiery 'Insurrection Is Coming': Watch Judge Jeanine Hit Back at Mitt Romney
There is a political insurrection coming, and “Mitt Romney just confirmed it,” Judge Jeanine Pirro said in her opening statement on Justice.
Pirro responded to the former GOP presidential nominee’s calls this week to stop Donald Trump.
"We are fed up, we're sick of the lies, the veils and the games," said the judge. “You want a brokered convention? A primer, Mitt. Whenever we have one, we lose."
“Fact: the establishment is panicked.” But not for the right reasons, Judge Jeanine warned.
“We don't believe any of you. That's why the outsiders are so strong in both parties - while the insiders seek a brokered convention or super delegates to guarantee their positions. You're panicked, not for us, but because you’re worried about losing power.”
Judge Jeanine said Trump is "doing more to add to our ranks than any of your anemic get-out-the-vote operations."
"Do not disrespect the man who makes sense to us," she said. "Because when you disrespect him, you disrespect the will of the American people. That's not a good place to be."
Watch Judge Jeanine's opening statement above and read the full transcript below.
There's an insurrection coming.
Mitt Romney just confirmed it.
We've watched governors, the National Review, conservative leaders, establishment, and party operatives trash Donald Trump. But Mitt Romney will always be remembered as the one who put us over the edge and awoke a sleeping giant - the silent majority - the American people.
Fact: the establishment is panicked.
Mitt essentially called for a brokered convention where the Republican nominee will be selected by party activists and delegates, irrespective of their states choice. The call? To vote for whomever has the best chance of beating Donald Trump. You want a brokered convention? A primer, Mitt. Whenever we have one, we lose.
Dewey and Ford emerged from a brokered convention to lose the general election. So why? Because the party elite and elders want to "protect" us - stop us from falling into the abyss. Mitt - I’m sure you and your cronies don't feel this, but most of us working two and three jobs think we are already in the Obama abyss. Most of us are scared about our safety and our security.
You want to prevent us from falling into a recession? We don't believe any of you. That's why the outsiders are so strong in both parties - while the insiders seek a brokered convention or super delegates to guarantee their positions. You're panicked, not for us, but because you’re worried about losing power. Lobbyists, pharmaceutical companies, power brokers, lawmakers... Willing to invest in absurd pensions our children can't pay, for your own short-term political survival.
We are sick and tired of legislators with modest means, who leave Congress multi-millionaires, whose spouses and families get all the contracts from selling the post offices to accessing insider information so they can buy property and flip it. You are so entrenched that you are willing to give Hillary Clinton the win. It doesn't matter to you which party - crony capitalism and its paradigm will not change for the elite. Let the American people suffer along the way.
Mitt, if you’re so concerned about our country, where were you when Barack Obama lied to us - saying we could keep our healthcare and our doctor?
Where were you when the GSA wasted millions of our dollars for stupid conferences, when the military suffered as the V.A. was run like a piggy bank for corrupt employees, when the IRS went after conservative 501 c3 applicants, while the Clinton Foundation runs one of the biggest 501 c3s in the world - which strikes me as a money laundering organized criminal enterprise, parading as nothing more than a shell to pay campaigners and Clinton operatives to secure her election.
And you say you're offended by Donald Trump's language. Politicians have been trashing each other since the founding fathers. Language so horrible I can’t even repeat on the air. You're so offended by Trump’s language, but not Barack Obama’s condemnation of those who cling to God and guns.
And you’re worried about Donald Trump's businesses? You, Mitt, were a corporate raider who threw people out of work and sent jobs out of the country. And you don't like Donald’s temperament and judgment? You couldn't even stand up to CNN's Candy Crowley. You couldn't even get elected when the nation was ripe for a Republican president.
70 foreign policy security experts say: Mr. Trump's own statements lead us to conclude that as president he would use the authority of his office to act in ways that would make America less safe and diminish our standing in the world."
Are those bozos talking about Barack Obama? And they go on to say that he poses a distinct threat to civil liberties in the United States. Really? I'm worried about the civil liberties of Americans who've had their heads cut off. And those killed in workplace violence. Did you criticize that? No.
You want us to vote for Rubio. Why? What has he done? Aside from having one of the largest absentee voting records in the history of the U.S. Senate?
And you complain about Trump University? Mitt, mind explaining your connection to Full Sail University, which knew how to quote "hold down the cost of their education" - when, in truth, it was one of the most expensive colleges in America? When the owners were top donors to you through Solamere Capital - remember? You were an original investor there. And how about Vandertott College - where Ferguson’s Michael Brown was about to attend and where your pals were about to cash his federal financial loan?
Your namby-pamby reason that you won’t support Donald Trump even if he's the party's nominee? You worry what you'll tell your grandchildren when they ask why you didn't stop Donald Trump. Maybe you ought to worry about when they ask about your loss to Barack Obama. What will you tell them? That you choked?
And I don't care if he supported Democrats, Republicans, or Martians. He was a businessman. And I don't care if he said Putin was a strong leader he could get along with. Hell, Hillary Clinton hit a reset button with Russia. And you're worried about Putin when Barack Obama dances with the devil in Iran? Mitt, I never knew you were such a patriot.
You say Donald's arrogant - he says things that you don't. But things that you think. Your acts are more arrogant than his words.
Mitt, you lost your own state - Massachusetts - which was the second worst home state loss in presidential election history.
And Trump won 49% of Massachusetts. Donald Trump is bringing in record numbers of Americans. He is doing more to add to our ranks than any of your anemic get-out-the-vote operations.
Yes, there’s an insurrection coming. We are fed up, we're sick of the lies, the veils and the games.
You talk about immigration, yet no one has done anything since the last amnesty in 1986. While we continue to pay for education medication and housing. While families like Kate Steinle's - murdered by an illegal deported five times, convicted 7 times - suffer.
And behind back-door budget hearings, you continue to fund sanctuary cities that thumb their noses at American victims.
You talk about overspending and the government and the deficit has only gotten bigger. You take our money in the form of taxes, waste it away while you feather your own nests. From Bob Dole to John McCain to you, Mitt, and almost another Bush, the party elite cannot win.
Don't be small, Mitt. Remember our history when we were fed up with a monarchy? Be careful. Be very very careful. Do not disrespect the man who makes sense to us. Because when you disrespect him, you disrespect the will of the American people. That's not a good place to be.
And that's my open.
