Watch: Biden Just Said Two Words About Radical Islam You Would Never Expect Obama To Say

During a recent memorial service for the five U.S. military service members killed last month in Chattanooga, Vice President Joe Biden squarely addressed the radical Islamic teachings believed to have inspired shooting suspect Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

“These perverse ideologues, warped theocrats,” Biden said, “they may be able to inspire a single lone wolf to commit a savage act; but they can never, never threaten who we are.”

He went on to describe Abdulazeez in a direct manner missing from Barack Obama’s rhetoric.

“When this perverted jihadist struck,” he said, “everyone responded.”

The message obviously resonated with a wide array of social media users.

The Associated Press, however, earned some criticism when its edited version of Biden’s remarks notably excluded the phrase “perverted jihadist.”

Obama, on the other hand, has been criticized by the likes of notable lawman David Clarke Jr., who said the president gave a “shoulder shrug” to the incident because none of the victims “look like [Trayvon] Martin.”

Biden went on to offer not only his condolences to those who lost loved ones in the attack, but a message of hope for America’s future.

“This country has and still stands with you,” he said, “and it will remember what you’ve done. It will remember and remind everyone who we are at our best.”

He had “a message for those perverted cowards around the world,” informing them that “America never yields, never bends, never cowers, never stands down, endures, responds, and always overcomes; for we are Americans, and never underestimate us.”

Glenn Beck Just Unloaded On Liberal Media In EPIC Rant: ‘YOU COWER IN FEAR!’

Glenn Beck kept it simple. When Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan issued a call for violence, the media muted any outrage it might have felt. He did not.

Farrakhan last week called for black Americans to “rise up” and “kill those who kill us” if the federal government fails to “intercede in our affairs.”

“Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling,” Farrakhan added in a video posted online.

Beck played the audio on his show last Wednesday before exploding at the media for their silence on the statement.

“How is this guy walking around still today? Seriously, I want to know. How is he — where is the media! Where is the media?” he shouted. “He is calling for the execution of Americans! Where are you? You are nowhere! Why? Because it is about Islam! And you are too much of a wuss to say the truth!”

“You cower in fear,” the radio host then erupted.

Beck contrasted the media outrage that was created when Sarah Palin’s PAC put crosshairs over political races it was targeting with the silence that followed Farrakhan’s most recent statement.

“He is calling, not couching it, he is openly calling for the slaughter of Americans!” Beck added.

“I just can’t take it! I just can’t take the hypocrisy! You’re all about the freakin’ lion in Zimbabwe and you don’t care about the abortion mills. I can’t take it anymore,” he continued. “I can’t take it. I can’t take it. I am not sitting down anymore.”

Carly Fiorina Goes Full Honey-Badger on Hillary, Jeb, And Media. Awesome!

How much do we love Carly Fiorina? Let us count the ways. In this post, we have three because she went after three of our favorite targets over the weekend at a Koch Brothers summit, most likely in their underground lair…

On Hillary Clinton:

“Mrs. Clinton’s track record is one of failure.”

On Jeb Bush:

“We have festering problems in Washington D.C. … the power, the weight, the complexity of government is literally crushing the potential of this nation. Given those festering problems for both Republicans and Democrats over decades, I think my question to Gov. Bush is… would be why do you think you are the Bush who can change that?”

And, of course, on the media…

I always find it fascinating the media tends to gravitate toward stories of money that funds conservative causes. I don’t see big newspaper articles about George Soros or Tom Steyer. The point is that the media doesn’t like one kind of money but is OK with another type of money. I think everyone ought to play by same sort of rules. It’s one thing for Democrats to complain about corporations getting engaged in politics, yet they never have a problem with unions in politics.”

That last part is a perfect example of how Carly Fiorina is so good. That is a common point that is made on the right; but instead of repeating it by flailing her arms around with her hair on fire just to appeal to the base, she expressed the point in a way that people from outside the base – the people not inclined to vote for us (or vote at all) who we need to vote for us – can understand and listen to.

Republicans have one way of doing things. Carly Fiorina don’t care.

Carly Fiorina, the Republican Party’s honey badger.

Lib Paper Embarrassingly Contradicts Own Article While Trying To Take Down GOP Candidate

Some eagle-eyed Washington Post readers were confused Wednesday morning upon reading an article that seemed at odds with the publication’s own research. The article’s headline left little question regarding the current status of its subject: Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

“Lagging in polls, Huckabee takes a leap of faith,” the print edition’s headline declared.

As Breitbart noted, an online version of the same story carried a different – and more accurate – headline: “Mike Huckabee, looking for a niche, woos blacks in GOP primaries.”

Writer Philip Rucker acknowledged Huckabee’s past success among black voters but relegated him to “the second tier” of GOP primary candidates.

Some, including Breitbart’s Alex Swoyer, wondered how describing Huckabee as a “second tier” candidate “lagging” in the polls squared with the newspaper’s recent poll placing the former Arkansas governor in the top quartile of a crowded 16-candidate field.

The Washington Post/ABC poll showed Donald Trump with a commanding lead and Huckabee in fourth place behind Jeb Bush and Scott Walker.

Regardless of Huckabee’s standing this early in the primary, however, Rucker ended his report on the candidate’s stop at a predominantly black South Carolina church by emphasizing the impact his message is having on audiences.

“I’m a Democrat,” local Nathaniel Pugh said, “but I might cross the line to vote for him. We can talk till we’re blue in the face, but until our hearts get right, there will be racism. For Gov. Huckabee to come into our little town and talk about this, that’s huge. He got my attention.”

Trump’s Lawyer Makes Even Donald Look Tame With Intense Tirade Against Liberal Site

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s fiery retorts to his detractors have become popular fodder for news outlets covering the raucous 2016 presidential primary campaign. While Trump’s rhetoric has been brash and bold, however, his lawyer recently provided a glimpse of his attack dog capabilities.

As Western Journalism reported, The Daily Beast recently published an article dredging up a more than 20-year-old quote from Trump’s ex-wife, Ivana, in an ostensible attempt to depict him as a sexual abuser.

In the piece, authors Tim Mak and Brandy Zadrozny included attorney Michael Cohen’s fierce, and occasionally profane, reaction to the report.

“You write a story that has Mr. Trump’s name in it, with the word ‘rape,’” he said, “and I’m going to mess your life up … for as long as you’re on this frickin’ planet … you’re going to have judgments against you, so much money, you’ll never know how to get out from underneath it.”

Cohen went on to taunt the reporter, telling Mak that if he wants to ruin his life “at the age of 20,” he would be happy to make that happen.

“I think you should go ahead and write the story that you plan on writing,” he said. “I think you should do it. Because I think you’re an idiot. And I think your paper’s a joke, and it’s going to be my absolute pleasure to serve you with a $500 million lawsuit, like I told [you] I did it to Univision.”

The Daily Beast article has since been updated to include Ivana Trump’s reaction to the story – and support for her ex-husband:

I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president.
