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, …

Video: Bill Whittle lays failed Foley/Sotloff Rescue and Benghazi Debacle at Obama’s feet

Righteous Rage Alert!

In his “Firewall” video below, commentator Bill Whittle slams Barack Obama, attributing the failed Foley/Sotloff rescue and Benghazi abandonment debacle directly on the “self-obsessed moral cowardice” of Barack Obama.

Video: Brit Hume Explains Why President Obama Seems So Rudderless

Fox News’ senior commentator Brit Hume seldom disappoints. Here he gives a compelling explanation of why Obama seems so confused and feckless. Namely, the world is just not behaving the way it’s supposed to with Obama as president, and he still can’t come to terms with that.

The Hume theory helps explain why Obama is always retreating to his comfort zones — fund raisers, the golf course, bachelor parties, or whatever. He’s escaping from the real world, which is turning out …

Video: Hear Ted Cruz On Fire at the AFP Summit!

Hear Senator Ted Cruz in a 28-minute Reagan-like appeal to American voters at the AFP Summit, August 30, 2014.

Sen. Cruz is a Republican and a favorite of the Tea Party movement, but his appeal is to all Americans who are fed up with both political parties and business as usual in Washington and our state houses.

If you don’t like Big Government telling you what to do, if you want to keep more of what you earn, and if you think politicians should …

Video: Hear Mark Levin Admonish State Legislators to Use Article V of U.S. Constitution

Our Constitution’s Framers, especially George Mason and James Madison, presciently foresaw a day when we might have an overtaxing, overborrowing, overspending, overregulating, and overbearing federal government. Does that sound like today’s situation?.

Wisely, the Framers included in Article V a method by which our state legislatures could amend the US Constitution without the permission or approval of Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court. Article V assigns Congress no more than an administrative obligation, and the President and Supreme Court are assigned …

Video: UK PM David Cameron Raises ISIS Threat Level to “Severe”

Sounding like a true national leader, United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron has raised the terror attack threat level to “Severe” based on chatter and other intelligence information. Just ahead of another 9/11 anniversary, this seems especially appropriate.

Compare this speech to recent speeches by President Obama (“We don’t yet have a strategy”) and the clarifications and walk-backs offered by his press secretary Josh Earnest. Which leader inspires more confidence? Which leader seems more in charge?

Today, August 29, President Obama will …

Ronald Reagan

Channeling Ronald Reagan, Newt Gingrich has drafted the kind of speech a President Reagan would make to the American people after the beheading of James Foley and the slaughter of Christians by the vile savages who call themselves the Islamic State, ISIS, or ISIL.

As you read the words below, try to imagine having a President, once again, who could and would make such a presentation to the American people.

Starting from a simple tweet by actor James Woods, author David Horowitz explains the cause of America’s wrong-headed direction plainly and simply in fewer than 900 words. Short summary:  Obama himself is the cause. It’s him. Period. His underlings are doing his bidding and being rewarded for it no matter what damage they do.

Here is his full power commentary from RedState.com (emphasis added):

Video: Judge Jeanine – Obama’s Response to Foley Beheading is the Last Straw

“WEAK, WIMPY, and PATHETIC” is how Judge Jeanine Pirro describes President Obama’s reaction to the beheading of freelance Journalist James Foley by ISIL radical Islamists.

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 —
