What is a caliphate? Here’s what Glenn said in 2011
Way back in 2011, Glenn began warning America about the goal of Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood: The caliphate. No one wanted to believe that extremists would be working to conquer the Middle East under Islamic rule.

If you were to turn on MSNBC on any given day, you’d be sure to see one of their hosts (the ones who haven’t been cancelled yet) slamming someone in the GOP for waging a “war on women.” But if you want to see a real war, look no further than the treatment of women under the rule of the Islamic State — truly, truly horrifying.

‘You morons! You useful idiots!’ : Glenn goes off on net neutrality supporters

What happened? Find out HERE.

Giuliani continues to put Obama in place
