State Department Liaison Joel Rubin was questioned by the bulldog, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, and demanded an explanation why the Select Committee on Benghazi still had not received access to all the witnesses and the documents they asked for.

Rubin cited security issues and the Justice Department as obstacles for the delivery of the witnesses and documents, to which Gowdy countered by telling him that the Justice Department wasn’t part of the hearing because they “have no issues with them.”

Gowdy concluded his questioning of the department with a subtle jab.

“If you have time for condom demonstrations or culinary diplomacy, I think you have time to comply with a legitimate request for documents from Congress and I’m sure you agree,” Gowdy said before recognizing another committee member.

Howard Dean Forced To Apologize For ‘American Sniper’ Comments

Howard Dean

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean speculated last Friday on Real Time with Bill Maher that most of the moviegoers who went to see American Sniper were angry and from the Tea Party.

His comments have generated a lot of buzz, so much so that he says he’s been receiving countless tweets from “right-wing nut jobs” calling him out for making them.

Actor Gary Sinise joined the cause and called out Dean for his comments, forcing Dean on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews to make a public apology for his comments.

“This is something in which I’ve almost never done in politics, I’ll apologize to the veterans,” Dean said. “I haven’t seen the movie, and I think it was wrong. I talked to a lot of people about it.”

But before his actual apology, he first had to take a jab at the Right.

“I make no apology to the thousands of right-wing nut jobs who’ve been Twittering me with nasty language, but I do apologize to the veterans; we owe them a lot and I think this movie was much more nuanced than I thought,” he added. “I have a lot of respect for the people who served this country and I apologize.”

Twitter responded to Dean’s apology and his presumptive criticism before watching the movie:

After ‘Froot Loops Lady’ Interview, Obama Called The First “Entertainment-Created President”

Obama

Despite the chaos, Islamic terrorism, and grief gripping Europe and the Middle East, President Obama has chosen to not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but instead gave an hour to GloZell Green, Hank Green, and Bethany Mota. For those who don’t know, these three are YouTube sensations with millions of followers.

GloZell is famous for her bright green lipstick, eating hot peppers and spoonfuls of cinnamon, and sitting in a bathtub full of Froot Loops. Mota is a teen who is known for her videos about fashion and style. Green (no relation to GloZell) is known for his videos about science and history.

Civil Rights leader and executive director of TheTeaParty.net Niger Innis and radio host Richard Fowler joined Martha MacCullum on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom to discuss why Obama would rather snub America’s ally to join three YouTubers.

“I think it’s a great, great, great idea,” Fowler said. “I think that just shows the power of YouTube and the power of social media to help change discourse in this country.”

Innis wasn’t amused and added that the commitment of Obama to snub Netanyahu was “an abysmal mistake on his part.”

“This is the first entertainment-created president,” Innis rebutted. “… This is the first president who was largely created due to a good speech that he gave and an entertainment mythology that was created about his candidacy, and what he would do as president of the United States.

“It’s a question of priorities and it’s a huge priority problem when the president of the United States makes an extraordinary amount of time to engage the entertainment community, but he does not set aside time for critical meetings like that with our most important ally in the Middle East, that being Israel, during a time of war, that we’re at war with Islamic extremism,” Innis added.

Handcuffed Detainee Is Being Booked When Officer Has A Heart Attack; What He Does Next Might Have Saved His Life

Handcuffed

Jamal Rutledge sat handcuffed awaiting booking recently when the officer processing him collapsed to the ground. Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Officer Franklin Foulks had a heart attack–and Rutledge was the only one who could do anything for him.

The security footage showed Rutledge checking on the officer and kicking the security fence to alert police to the situation.

Officers Robert Norvis and Raymond Ketchmark responded and removed the officer’s gear and activated a nearby defibrillator while waiting for medical personnel to arrive. Foulks was taken to the hospital, and the medical staff noted that the quick thinking of Rutledge helped save the officer’s life.

According to NBC Miami, Rutledge and Officers Norvis and Ketchmark will be honored for their actions.

MSNBC: “We Have To Respect” Islamic Murderers

Evan Kolhmann

Terrorism consultant Evan Kohlmann sat down with the hosts of MSNBC’s The Cycle to discuss the recent Muslim terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris and said we should be respecting the same people who many might say have no respect for the lives of others.

“I think we need to understand here, there has to be the ability for people to be critical of other religions… At the same time, we have to also respect Islam and we should not deliberately go out and poke our fingers in other people’s eyes, you know?” Kehlmann said. “Everyone should have the right to critique Islam, but at least we should do it with some sense of respect so that people don’t get the idea that this is Islamophobia, that it’s racism, that this is exactly the same kind of critique or analysis that we would apply to Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism or any other philosophy out there.”

One might ask: is there any identical critiquing of other religions?

Here is a flashback video of Journalist Brigitte Gabriel countering this “respect” narrative and the peaceful Muslim narrative:

Another crucial video is from David Wood outlining the three stages of Jihad – that many are unaware of – based on what the Koran teaches.

Political cartoonist David Pope shared his take on Muslim respect after terrorists slaughtered 12 people in Paris:
