Video: Breaking Up with Barack Obama – New Ad Going Viral

This is a good political ad from many perspectives … it’s rapidly going viral, and Leftists / Progressives / Democrats are putting up a lot of flak about it — that’s how one can tell that the ad is right over the target .

The ad is from Americans for Shared Prosperity. True to form, the Left is already attacking the organization and ignoring the points made by the woman in the ad.

As Aristotle said, “When the debate is lost, slander becomes …

Video: Judge Jeanine: ISIS is Here, Govt Can’t Protect Us, Get Prepared Now

For many months, Judge Jeanine Pirro has been warning that a big attack, much bigger than 9/11, is near for America. As she puts it, this is the biggest single threat in our 238-year history.

Our federal government has left our physical borders unsecured, and even if those borders were secure, the feds still can’t track visa overstays by foreigners. So we’re extremely vulnerable. We have no idea who is coming here or who is already here to do us harm.

With …

Video: Dr. Zuhdi Jasser Smacks Down Obama’s “ISIS is not Islamic” Proclamation

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is aghast at the ignorance and arrogance of Barack Obama, John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, Jeh Johnson, and Josh Earnest who presume to tell the world what is, and is not, Islamic. Says Jasser, the behavior of ISIS/ISIL most certainly is Islamic, in its fundamentalist form, and by pretending and posturing otherwise, Obama et al are burying efforts like Jasser’s to reform Islam from within.

Zuhdi Jasser is an American physician, a devout Muslim, a former US Navy Lt. Commander, …

Video: ISIL is not Islamic? Listen well, Mr. President, to one who knows

History will record Barack Obama’s

“ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the slaughter of innocents.”

as among the most naïve and self-deceptive pronouncements ever made by an American president.

But there it is. Barack Obama said it. It was right there on his teleprompter. You can hear it again in the video at the bottom of this post.

Or instead, listen carefully to someone who really knows. He sounds like a real man, not a Great Pretender. Brother Rachid was born-to-Islam, raised …

Video: Sen. Lindsey Graham’s One-Minute Declaration of War on ISIS / ISIL

Are you tired of wishy-washy “nuanced” political talking heads when it comes to the newly declared “Islamic State” and their threats to Western civilization? You’ll have to look long and hard to hear a senior US politician speak more plainly than what you’ll hear in the video below.

On Sept 14, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) of the Senate Armed Services Committee, declared directly and unequivocally that “This is OUR fight” when it comes to destroying ISIS/ISIL/IS.

Our explicit objectives, says Sen. Graham, …

Video: Judge Jeanine Trashes Obama’s Absurd “ISIL is not Islamic” Claim

Once again, Judge Jeanine Pirro pulls the rug out from under Barack Obama. This time it’s for his utterly absurd claim that “ISIL [ISIS] is not Islamic”.

We have to wonder if President Obama, and his entourage of “advisers”, are delusional.

Video: Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) Inspires at AZ GOP at Fundraiser

On Sept 12, 2014, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) inspired a full audience at a Scottsdale, Arizona fundraiser. Among his themes were:

We have common cause with our Founders and Framers, 1787
Between the GOP’s Establishment and Grassroots base, there lies a great opportunity
We are suffering from regulation without representation, a form of tyranny
The GOP has to be for something as well against what we don’t like
Two principles made us great: free markets and voluntary institutions of civil society — not Big Government in Washington
We can’t …

Now they call me Infidel

Egyptian-born American Nonie Darwish has published a powerful and perceptive article explaining the rise of ISIS, the behavior of Middle East countries, and Barack Obama’s personal motivations regarding Islam.

Ms Darwish, now a Christian, understands Islam and the Middle East as few of us can. Her model seems to fit — it has the ring of truth.

In particular —

Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia, seem to have been encouraging America to destroy ISIS, yet they …

Video: Fox News Breaks Story on Infamous Benghazi “Stand Down” Orders

In what may be one of the finest examples of investigative television journalism of this decade, Fox News’ Bret Baier interviews three defenders who were on-site during the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

These three brave and capable men provide a story that seems to be at odds with the Obama administration’s steadfast claim that no one was ever told to “stand down” in efforts to rescue embassy personnel, …
