Video: Mark Levin & Sean Hannity: Obama Golfs as the World Burns

Sean Hannity interviews Mark Levin about Barack Obama’s foreign policy, his continued blame-shifting, and his overall performance as commander-in-chief, which Levin describes as “pathetic”.

The Middle East is on fire, our border control has collapsed, and Russia is moving toward a takeover of Ukraine reminiscent of Hitler’s anschutz takeover of Austria in the 1930’s. And in real time, right now, Christians, Yazidis, and Muslims (who are not ISIS-approved) are being butchered by the thousands in northern Iraq.

And through all this —

Yet James O’Keefe of “Veritas” easily crosses our border with Mexico several times in only seconds, dressed as Osama Bin Laden!

Video: Pat Condell – The Left’s Hypocrisy over Gaza

Pat Condell uncorks another in his series of diatribes against the Left and the Leftist media. This time it’s for their mawkishly hypocritical hand-wringing and pious, self-congratulatory moralizing over the Israel-Gaza war.


My only comment is: Yeah! What he said!

Nick Adams

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly interviews Australian political commentator Nick Adams, who describes Australia’s success dealing with the problem of illegal immigration. It’s a no-nonsense approach that earned excoriation from the Australian Left, but in the end may actually be more humane than Australia’s older, virtually open-border policy.

Can the US learn something from Australia’s experience?

Adams is the author of the book American Boomerang.

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 …

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.
