Glenn Beck, founder of TheBlaze and radio talk show host, declared on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday that “If Donald Trump wins, we are in as much trouble as a nation as we were, if not more, than when Barack Obama (got elected).”

Beck, who claimed that Trump is a Progressive on "The O’Reilly Factor," said that, if the country chose Trump as its next president, Americans would end up with a “monster much, much worse than anything that Barack Obama could have dreamt.”


Beck even went so far as to compare Trump to President Woodrow Wilson, who Beck has repeatedly called the father of America's Progressive movement.

Prager University has released a new video answering the question, "Is America racist?"

In the five and a half minute video, narrator Larry Elder addresses the question of whether racism is still a major problem in America. He states, after all, "President Barack Obama certainly thinks so."


Elder relies on statistics in order to dispute the notion that America is a racist country.

Elders cites a recent Gallup poll that states in 1958, only four percent of Americans approved of "black/white" marriages. In 2016, however, that percentage is at an all-time high of 87 percent.

The video finishes with Elder quoting Harvard University sociologist Orlando Patterson. Patterson said, “America is now the least racist white majority society in the world.”

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says that the Republican presidential candidates have been using "derogatory, racial laguage" toward President Obama.

At a Democratic Party dinner in Charleston, S.C this past Saturday evening, Clinton stated, "Both Ted Cruz and Chris Christie called him [Obama] a child the other night. Too often we hear Republicans talking in coded, racial language about free stuff, takers and losers.”

Basically, Clinton is saying that the word "child" is a coded racial term. Really?

Clinton continued, "Instead of insulting our president, we should be thanking him for saving our economy and leading our country through some very dangerous times."

Clinton also talked about how she and the president are often linked.


"Now, I have noted that very often my name is linked to the president. Now, I personally consider that a great compliment."

Clinton insisted the problem with the Republicans is that they do not know all that she and President Obama have accomplished.

"So I sent them all a copy of my book 'Hard Choices.' I wrote each of them a letter, and I said, 'You know there are so many of you [that] you could have a book club.'"

Clinton also noted, "I have not gotten one thank-you note. I'll let you you know that right now."


Nobel Prize winning American economist Milton Friedman knew socialism and he also knew that capitalism is the better philosophy.

In a 1979 interview with liberal television talk show host Phil Donahue, Friedman stated, "The record of history is absolutely crystal clear. There is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system." 


Donahue kept pressing Friedman on the alleged ills of capitalism and free trade. Donahue referenced the amount of poverty and the disparity between the "haves" and "have-nots." At every turn, Friedman had a clear and concise answer to Donahue's scathing review of the "capitalist agenda."

Check out the video below to watch how Friedman obliterated the socialist agenda.



The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) released their report Wednesday on the impact of President Obama's paid leave proposal, H.R. 932.

The mandate would require employers to offer paid leave to their employees. While this might sound good in theory, the NFIB claims the possible economic outcome of this bill could be devastating.

“There’s no such thing as a free benefit,” said NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner.  “This would come at a high cost to small business and will have a serious effect on jobs and the economy.”

The NFIB reports that the law would cost the country 430,000 jobs and downsize economic output by $652 billion over a 10 year period.

NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner commented on the situation:

What the advocates don’t realize is that there are millions of small businesses that don’t make a dollar if their employees aren’t there to perform a service for customers. No one gets paid, including the business owner, if customers aren’t being served.


The NFIB asserts the negatives of the plan outweigh the incentives. Employers will feel the brunt of the Obama mandate.

The research says that the direct expense of paying wages to absent workers, the lost productivity resulting from workers not working, and the increased costs for reporting and recordkeeping will hurt companies.

After being off of the bookshelves since World War II, Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" has returned.

The 2,000 page annotated version of the book was reissued after the Munich Institute for Contemporary History (MICH) renewed its copyright.

"The book is not only a historical source, it's a symbol," said Christian Hartmann, co-editor of the edition. "And we wanted to dismantle that symbol once and for all."


There were 15,000 pre-orders for the book, almost four times the 4,000 copies printed. Demands for translations in different languages have come from all over the globe.

The head of MICH, Andreas Wirsching, told a news conference, “The edition unmasks Hitler's false allegations, his whitewashing and outright lies.”

Before it was stricken from the shelves in Germany after World War II ended, "Mein Kampf" sold 12 million copies.


President Obama took to the Web to answer questions from three YouTube "Celebrities" on Friday. Some of the questions were... ummm... interesting?

The complete interview lasted just under an hour, with each YouTuber given 15-20 minutes to ask Obama questions.

The questions ranged from "Which 'Star Wars' character do you think you would be?" to "Which way would you put pants on a dog?"

And, of course, if there was an element named after him - "Obamium" - what would he like its characteristics to be.


That is not a joke.

While watching the video below, ask yourself, "Would I ask the President of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, these questions?"



Europe is being overrun with sexual assaults perpetrated by migrants. While this may not be a new phenomenon, the practice of it, particularly in Sweden and Germany, is growing at an alarming rate. 

On New Years' Eve, the German police in Cologne reported receiving 600 complaints of sexual assaults and rape by men who were of "Arab or North African origin." 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been relatively quiet about these incidents until the practice of rape Jihad were exposed, has called the New Years attacks "repugnant, criminal offenses."


About a year ago, ISIS leadership actually issued guidelines for raping women.  

The most common practice consists of a group of men surrounding a woman in a crowded situation, while the men in the middle of the circle commit the heinous acts. The circle provides cover for the pigs carrying out the assault.

An example of this growing, disgusting act is depicted in the video below, which took place on June 30, 2015 in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt.

During a portion of his final State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Obama might not have gotten quite the reaction he wanted out of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

In his speech, Obama claimed:

“I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air. Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. Let me tell you something — the United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close.”

But while the president was speaking, C-SPAN's cameras broke to a shot of the Joint Chiefs, who were not applauding with most of the audience. In fact, all seven of the Joint Chiefs pictured did not even seem to flinch. 


“Our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world,” Obama proclaimed. “No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin. Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office."

Obama said this on the very same day that 10 U.S. Navy soldiers were being held by Iran after their boat drifted in the Persian Gulf.




Behind the scenes at tapings of the game show Family Feud, host Steve Harvey will talk to the audience. Sometimes he'll have conversations. Sometimes he'll do a little stand-up comedy.

On this occassion, however, Harvey decided to give the audience some advice that they might not ever forget.

In the six-and-a-half minute video, Harvey talks to the crowd, who are hanging on his every word, about life and how sometimes you just need to "jump." When he uses the word "jump," he means that you need to take risks in life. If you don't, in his words, "you are just existing." 

Harvey talks about finding your personal gift that was given to you by God and using it to its maximum potential.


Harvey, who was in the news recently for his huge flub at the Miss Universe pageant, might just redeem himself with this life advice that anyone could use.
