Video: Judge Jeanine: Obama Has NO INTEREST in Leadership

Judge Jeanine Pirro walks through Obama’s record and recent polls to support her case that Obama lacks the instinct for, or even an interest in, leadership.

Obama’s poll numbers on Ukraine, Iraq, Afghanistan, and especially immigration are miserable. The president’s supporters say the president is interested in solving problems, not getting high poll ratings. But these days  it looks like he can’t do either. He has spent his entire political career lazily voting “present” at every opportunity, and it’s still his primary …

Video: John Birch Society’s Art Thompson on the Dangers of Foreign Entanglements

In Tempe, AZ, on July 29, 2014: Art Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society, delivered a passionate presentation on the dangers of foreign entanglements. The full video of his presentation, including a short Q&A session, appears below.


Many American conservatives focus almost entirely on domestic political issues, but there are international initiatives at work that just as dangerous, if not more so, than those emanating from Big Government in Washington and our state houses.

Thompson’s presentation is an introduction to those …

Regarding the Israel-Hamas war, here’s the best middle-finger response yet to the world’s self-deceiving, self-righteous, self-congratulatory Leftist media and Hollywood hypocrites.

Don’t Cry for Us Israelis, by Naomi Ragen, July 25, 2014

I’m sitting here in Jerusalem after a week of heartbreak over three murdered teens, followed by almost three weeks of sirens, bomb blasts, and finally, the funerals of young IDF soldiers, of whom one-third are students who should be taking their final exams …

Video: Mark Levin interviews Mosab Hassan Yousef – Son of Hamas’ Founder

July 29, 2014: Mark Levin interviews Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of the founder of Hamas.

Assuming he is genuine, Yousef knows the real Hamas far better than any of the mainstream-media “journalists” who continually bash Israel for fighting back against a vile foe.

Yousef has created a documentary titled “The Green Prince” that will be in theaters in September. Yousef says Hamas has a religious agenda to conquer the globe, creating a grand caliphate. Their ideology tells them they must kill anyone …

Video: Newt Gingrich on Gaza, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, US Border

On July 23, 2014, Newt Gingrich responded to a question about the state of world affairs given the crises in Gaza, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and our own US border. His response, below, is sobering to the point being scary.

Says Newt, we are entering a very difficult time. Without saying so directly, he makes a mockery of the claims about “global tranquility” made by President Obama’s press secretary, Josh Earnest.

The video clip above …

Video: Judge Jeanine to Pope Francis & President Obama: Where are You??

Judge Jeanine Pirro beseeches Pope Francis to help stop persecution and murder of Christians in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Noting the Pope’s righteous call to America to help migrant children, Pirro asks, respectfully, why the Pope and President Obama are so passive about when it comes to the murder of Christians and the destruction of holy Christian sites. Why are they not using their bully pulpits and considerable wealth and power to help?

Why, indeed?

From Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine, …

Representative Trent Franks from Arizona’s 8th Congressional District has published the 3-minute video below listing the failures of Obama and his entourage.


Memo to Democrats:

This is your guy. This is what happens when you nominate somebody you never vetted. Had you vetted him properly, he wouldn’t have qualified for so much as a low-level security clearance, let alone President of the United States. And you know it.

What the hell were you thinking? Just because he looked and sounded good you …

Video: Col. Richard Kemp on Israel, Gaza, Morality, and a Complicit Press

Former Col. Richard Kemp, who was head of British forces in Afghanistan, says no other army in the world has ever done more than Israel is doing now to save civilian lives. The other side, Hamas, deliberately sacrifices the lives of their own children to protect their missiles, hoping for photo ops that will help them win their damnable propaganda war. Kemp has seen it before in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he’s seeing it now again in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the self-deceiving, self-righteous, …

Video: The Israel Test – Who Passes? Who Fails?

Do you envy success and hate those who achieve it? Or do you admire it and seek to emulate it? George Gilder calls this the “Israel Test.”

When we see anti-American and anti-Israel violence around the world, good-hearted people in both countries ask “Why do they hate us so much? Is it because of something we’ve done?”

The short answer is: Yes, in their minds we’ve been way too successful in America and Israel, and the haters need to do something about …

Video: Judge Jeanine Pirro to President Obama – Put on Your Big-Boy Pants and Get in the Game!

Judge Jeanine Pirro lists five major crises raging around the world while President Barack Obama watches and dithers — Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Israel, and our own southern border. Meanwhile, the president’s spokesman touts the “global tranquility” that the president’s policies have produced(!).

The judge calls on Obama to get engaged and get in the game, comparing his feckless leadership to much stronger examples set by President Ronald Reagan during his two terms.  She closes by saying that his usual “bluffing” won’t …
