Are America's leaders enabling chaos in Israel and the border?

There is a leader vacuum that is evident in every corner of America and the entire world, and you can see it manifesting itself in our news stories.

I want to start with Israel today. Yesterday we showed you some of the most gruesome pictures I have ever seen. They were shocking, the truth of what the enemies of mankind, the radical Islamists, are capable of. Now, their direct enemy, the enemy of truth, Hamas, is once again calling for the extermination of corrupt Jews. Look at this.

How do you possibly expect someone to sit down at a peace table where they are saying, “We will exterminate every single one of you” and then back it up with their Scriptures? It’s insanity.

A Hamas rocket misfired yesterday, landing in a hospital in Gaza, killing nine children. Who did Hamas say did it? They said Israel did. Israel’s cabinet is now warning that they are seeing the signs of the beginning of another Holocaust, but instead of believing that that is even possible, of course it is, listen to the words of the leaders. It’s like read Mein Kampf. How did you miss this?

It’s because you don’t want to look at that. The world chooses to believe terrorists. The world chooses to believe that they can’t possibly be that horrible. The Associated Press looked more like Gaza propaganda today. Earlier today this is what they said: “As much of world watches Gaza war in horror, members of Congress fall over each other to support Israel.” Excuse me? Did you see what we just played for you? That was Hamas.

They went on. The spin continued. They said the violence was Israel’s fault, “Senior Palestinian official offers 24 hour truce in Gaza, says he’s also speaking for Hamas.” Really? More, “A spokesman brushed aside the offer, saying until Israel hears from Hamas directly, it’s not serious.” Well, of course it’s not serious. The Associated Press views Hamas as the victim who just wants to give peace a chance, but they will dismiss the words that I just played for you, and they will conclude that it’s just these darn Israelis that just can’t, you know, can’t get along with everybody.

This Sunday, TheBlaze was one of the first to report through Sharona Schwartz, our reporter in Israel, she reported on the truth on Hamas. She showed the mega-attack that was being plotted and planned through the Gaza terror tunnels that was stopped.

And what the plan was is they were going to, Hamas was going to dress as Israeli soldiers, which, by the way, is against the Geneva Convention, and they had all of these uniforms that they had either stolen or had made. And they were going to go through the terror tunnels, and they were going to kidnap as many Jews as possible.

Leaders of the world are too afraid, too cowardice, or too bought and sold, they don’t even know who they are anymore, and they won’t stand boldly in the truth. Instead, we get John Kerry. Now, John Kerry, I don’t mean to be divisive here, you know how I feel about him, but this peace deal that he was offering to Israel was laughed off by everyone in the region, including the Palestinian Authority.

He has done something that nobody else has been able to do since the time of Abraham, and that is unite Jew and Arab and Palestinian alike, everybody together, unite them laughing at him. I don’t think that’s ever happened. Hamas was the only one who benefited from this offer, and even the Egyptians, they were mocking him openly. That’s leadership? And then we have something even worse, the people like the Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. Her father has got to be horrified by this. Her stance has just come out in a memo on Israel.

Her stance was to be determined by how much financial opportunity there is, so who’s going to give me more cash? Are the Jews going to give me more cash, the Palestinians, who? Because I’ll determine it largely on the level of support. It is disgusting. It is frustrating. It is un-American. It is un-American. I don’t know who we are anymore because we have lost our why. Why are we even a nation anymore?

The debate on illegal immigration, everybody’s rushing in to find a quick solution, let’s find a solution, got to find a solution. Could we just ask people, “Why are you here?” It’s a simple question. Ask them that simple question, “Why are you coming here?” If you do, you’ll find out because most will say Obama will take care of us. Those are quotes, “Obama will take care of us. He will grant us amnesty.”

Yesterday, illegal immigrants protested outside of the White House. If you are not afraid, if you are here illegally, and you’re protesting in front of the White House, and you notice, nobody’s face is being blurred here. Really? You’re completely unafraid of the law. There is no justice. It’s completely broken down.

A leader in Washington would tell people, “Stop coming.” We love you, we have compassion, we will find those who are really, truly needing asylum, but that’s it, stop coming here. It’s what I did on this network, but it’s what the president needs to do on every network. And because he doesn’t, there’s a vacuum, and people now are taking matters into their own hands.

I’m warning you, when justice fails, vengeance grows if we don’t grow mercy, and this is the end. We now have armed militias moving across Texas. This is different than the Minutemen. The Minutemen were unarmed and simply reporting illegal crossings. Now, I’m sure that most people in this militia have good intentions. Well, I don’t know, I don’t know. They’re being described as antigovernment, but I’m described as antigovernment, so I don’t know.

I know that if you are carrying guns down on the border, it’s not going to end well and especially if it is driven by anger. Even if it is righteous anger, it’s a recipe for disaster.

The world needs leaders, and as our founders proved, you don’t have to be some fancy CEO at the top of an organizational chart to lead. Anybody can do it. Anyone can do it. Perhaps it’s you.

Tonight, our guest is going to try to shore that up because the next great leader might just be you.

The Purple Heart is reserved for those wounded or killed during battle. Awarded by the President, the medal has George Washington's image right there on the front of it. Make no mistake, it is reserved for heroes. True heroes. Men and women who've faced death and still persevered. Soldiers who fought in battle at the cost of their limbs, their lives, or their inner peace. John F. Kennedy earned a Purple Heart for his heroism as a gunboat pilot in 1944. John McCain received one for, well, we all know his horrific story. Colin Powell. Roughly one million Purple Heart medals have been awarded to veterans, all of whom were determined to have fought valiantly, with courage and heart.

So it was a bit of a head-scratcher to hear comments from Democratic Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee and self-appointed "Leader in Effort to #ImpeachTrump." During a House Oversight Committee hearing questioning Peter Strzok, Cohen said, perplexingly, that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart. You know, because he's injured by all those mean text messages that HE sent?

As we've seen, other than Cohen's fanboy praise, Strzok hasn't gotten off easy. Thankfully. The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General wrote: "We did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the [Anthony] Weiner laptop was free from bias."

Lack of confidence. I believe that's one of the criteria for a different medal. Not a Purple Heart, though. Sorry, Strzok, you'll have to get your trophy elsewhere.

Time mgazine is back at it again, reporting the real news, doing the proper journalism. One of their latest articles is sure to earn them a Pulitzer. Surely. The article is titled, "Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court."

Here's how the article opens:

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn't need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn't sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway.

I like that the article sets up Kennedy's retirement as an apocalyptic event. A recurring theme in the mainstream media, now that I think of it, especially lately. Here's the gist of it:

Across the country, Americans are stockpiling emergency contraception in light of Justice Kennedy's retirement and President Donald Trump's Monday nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The nation's highest court is on its way to having a conservative majority, making threats against Roe v. Wade seem more dire than ever.

A good article includes backstory. History. The context. Here's what Time had to say about the sudden influx—some would say panic—in birth control:

To understand the interest in buying up Plan B, you need to brush up on Roe v. Wade. Some background: The court handed down the 7-2 decision in 1973, confirming that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy is covered by the Fourteenth Amendment. Progress has been rocky since then.

Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies.

Ah, yes. Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies. At this point, it's impossible for those inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome, to have a civil conversation. They certainly aren't going to budge in their opinion. Our main goal, obviously, is to connect to them as fellow human beings, living in the same chaotic world, and, hey, maybe along the way they'll admit that, maybe, they're a little more biased and deranged than they previously realized.

If all you knew about American politics came from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, or MSNBC, you'd think that a "Blue wave" is about to swamp the country, with hip, millennial geniuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surfing the crest of the wave. In fact, you would already think Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest hope for America since Barack Obama.

America is a very large country, and reality is usually more complex than the media lets on. But, since the media already has their narrative and superstar Ocasio-Cortez set for this November, there's no room for another young, minority, female, child of immigrants, political outsider, from the ultimate blue-wave state of California, named Elizabeth Heng. Well, there probably would be room for a story like that, except that she's a conservative.

Thirty-two-year-old Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress against Democrat Jim Costa, in California's 16th district. It's been 40 years since a Republican won in that district.

In the early 1980s, Heng's parents fled the violence in Cambodia and immigrated to the U.S. In 2008, after graduating from Stanford where she was student-body president, Heng opened several cell-phone stores with her brothers in the central San Joaquin Valley. Running her own business and managing 75 employees opened her eyes to a not-so-dirty secret about capitalism trying to survive the virus of progressivism. She says, "I saw firsthand how government regulations impacted businesses negatively. I constantly felt that from Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they were saying that I was everything wrong with our country, when all I was doing was creating jobs."

That's when she decided to venture to Washington, D.C., where she worked for six years learning the ins and outs of legislation and campaigning. She ended up working as a director for President Trump's inauguration ceremony, a job she managed while also finishing her MBA at Yale.

Fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone.

One of the biggest lessons she learned working in Washington became the platform she is now running for office on: fiscal responsibility. She says, "In a family or a business, we don't suddenly act surprised when a budget comes up for the year. We get it done."

What a concept.

Still, fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone. So, don't expect Elizabeth Heng to replace Ocasio-Cortez as the media darling anytime soon.

Desperate as they are to discredit Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, progressives have come up with a brilliant new angle for their attacks on President Donald Trump's candidate: his "frat boy"-sounding first name.

"We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights," tweeted pro-choice organization NARAL.

“Now, I don't know much about Kavanaugh, but I'm skeptical because his name is Brett," said late night show comedian Stephen Colbert. “That sounds less like a Supreme Court justice and more like a waiter at a Ruby Tuesday's. 'Hey everybody, I'm Brett, I'll be your Supreme Court justice tonight. Before you sit down, let me just clear away these rights for you.'"

But as Glenn Beck noted on today's show, Steven Colbert actually changed the pronunciation of his name to sound French when he moved from South Carolina to Manhattan … perhaps to have that certain je ne sais quoi.

Watch the clip below to see Colbert attempt to explain.

Colbert's name games.
