Video: Judge Jeanine: Barack Obama defends Islam by shaming Christianity

President Obama is ‘okay’ with terrorism. He’s comfortable with it. He just doesn’t care much. So says Judge Jeanine Pirro in the video below. She lays out the case for her conclusions, and explains how he likely got that way.

Radical Islamists have been butchering, burning, and burying innocent people alive — today. They have vowed to do the same to us. If there were ever a time for a President to unite and inspire the American people, this is it.

So there is the president, standing at …

Video: Bishop EW Jackson to Obama: Close Your Mouth, Not Guantanamo!

President Obama has been emptying the Guantanamo Bay prison of terrorists, freeing them to murder again, on the grounds that Guantanamo is “recruitment tool” for the terrorists.

At the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast, Obama had to gall to compare today’s Islamist atrocities to Christian Crusades, 1000 years in the past.

In this short video, Bishop EW Jackson strikes back with:

If you don’t want to give terrorists a recruitment tool, instead of closing Guantanamo Bay, frankly, sir, you ought to …

Video: Which side are you on?

Here’s a short, simple, powerful video narrated by millennials to challenge their fellow millennials.

In just one minute, hear pretty much every social issue the self-righteous Left purports to care about in the context of today’s anti-Israel propaganda.

If this video doesn’t give the self-deceptive Left at least a brief spasm of cognitive dissonance, nothing will.

Video: Jeanine Pirro: Bergdahl 5-for-1 Swap Deal Stunk from the Git-Go!

Eyes flashing and nostrils flaring, a ranting Judge Jeanine Pirro hammers away at the stupefyingly inept Bergdahl 5-for-1 swap that released 5 top-level radical Islamists for one alleged deserter. In three months those radicals, all the equivalent of general officers, will be freed entirely, and one has already been making contact with his radical Islamist comrades.

In the meantime, a conga line of Obama spokespersons are desperately defending the indefensible with word games about subtle differences between “terrorists” and “armed insurgents”. The latter is …

Video: Scott Walker Runs – Rush Limbaugh Raves

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin has an admirable record. He’s won 3 elections in 4 years in a blue state, balanced the state budget, survived assaults by powerful unions, lowered property taxes, and more. With his upbeat, down-to-earth presentation at the Iowa Freedom Summit (2nd video below), he’s moved up several notches on the list of GOP contenders for the 2016 presidential nomination.

Rightly so.

As the old saying goes: Sure, he can talk the talk, but can he walk the walk?  The aptly named Scott Walker did the hard …

Video: Video: Middle East Politics and History with Dr. Steve Carol

While some scholars may define it differently, Dr. Steve Carol refers to the Middle East as extending from (see map below):

Morocco and Mauritania on the west to Iran and Oman on the east, and from
Cyprus and Turkey in the north to Yemen, Sudan, Djbouoti, Somalia, and the Comoros in the south.

This territory includes the countries we usually think of first when we hear “Middle East”, among them Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, …

Video: Judge Jeanine: Obama & Kerry Flail as Radicals Rampage

Judge Jeanine Pirro lambastes Barack Obama and John Kerry for their feckless response to radical Islamist murders all across the globe. As the bodies pile up, Obama and Kerry respond by releasing dangerous Islamists from Gitmo and sending a 1970’s-era guitar player to Paris.

After excoriating Obama and Kerry, the judge offers a few strategic options that she believes will produce better results than another hand-wringing hashtag campaign.

Here are two short video clips of two potential 2016 candidates – Jeb Bush and Elizabeth Warren. I know it’s tough to put the substance of their remarks aside, but just compare the locution, passion, rhythm and enthusiasm of these two potential candidates.

Question: How long did you stick with the Jeb Bush video before switching over to Elizabeth Warren’s?

Is there any way on earth for a candidate like Jeb Bush to win an election campaign against an Elizabeth Warren? Unless …

I’ve had a recurring nightmare about the 2016 GOP presidential primaries. It goes like this —

After many months of the usual sound and fury, the GOP primaries come down to a single big-name, big-government Moderate battling a single Conservative who is exhausted and broke from fighting with a dozen other conservatives and, in the process, has alienated supporters of all the other conservatives.
The Moderate, anointed by the media as “most electable” and buoyed by GOP donor-class mountains of cash, then destroys the Conservative with negative campaigning in one or …
