Talking Drones and Privacy

Consumer journalist and investigative reporter John Stossel ponders a world where drones are mainstream. The tiny flying machines, equipped with a camera, can be bought as cheaply as $1,200, and are a boon to farmers and real-estate agents. But do they pose a serious problem of privacy when in devious hands? Stossel talks with Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul and others about the pending dilemma in this edition of Liberty Pen.

The 9/11 ISIS Threat

As the country commemorates the 13th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, there is growing concern that we are not yet through dealing with these mongrels. The new threat on the horizon is ISIS–the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria–which is wreaking havoc in the Middle East with abandon and setting its sights on the USA. Not only is this new brand of terror more powerful than Al-Qaeda ever was, but also more brutal and richer. Adding insult to injury, ISIS is padding its ever-growing force by thousands every month, including foreign mercenaries, many from the United States. Voice of America News breaks down the crisis with analysis and commentary.

A Glimpse Of World War III

Islamic terrorists want our resources. Pure and simple. And ISIS’ march through Syria and Iraq is just the beginning. Glenn Beck, of The Blaze.com and MercuryOneMemphis.com, heralds it as the beginning of World War III. Beck says Islam will move rapidly across the Middle East, stamp its mark in north Africa and move into South and Central America, leaving North America up for grabs. “That is the general gist of this,” Beck says. “It shows the infection all over and no place is a beacon for freedom.” Joining Beck in this dire discussion are former Assistant Secretary of Defense Frank Gaffney and PJ Media national security and terrorism correspondent Patrick Poole.

Dealing With ISIS

The world was horrified when an ISIS fanatic beheaded an American journalist, then immediately marched another hostage in front of the camera and threatened to do the same thing if the U.S. continued its bombing sorties in Iraq. The shameless and revolting murder, says Dick Morris, is a definite call to action for the United States. But aside from any military response, Morris is calling for crippling the travel of terrorists to the U.S. In this edition of Dick Morris Reports, he lays out the details.

World Still Silent On Genocide

In a moving and terse commentary, Fox News’ Lisa Daftari scolds Hollywood’s inner liberal circle for using their stardom to spew politically correct and basically uninformed opinions. Most recently, actors Penelope Cruz and her husband, Javier Bardem, blasted Israel for committing genocide, pointing to the 1,800 Palestinian casuaties as compared to 64 for the Israelis. Daftari argues these numbers do not tell the real story. Such as the stories of how Hamas use Palestinian children as human shields, hide their weapons in schools and civilian areas or how the Palestinian people have now turned against Hamas. Meanwhile, genocide is a reality in Syria, Iraq and the Sudan. Daftari has some pointed advice for these Hollywood zealots: “If you don’t know all the facts, stay quiet. Otherwise, use your voice to address real global calamities.” Listen to the rest of Daftari’s commentary on Fox News.

Fix Your Unhappiness

Wishful thinking in our lives is usually a recipe for unhappiness. At least that’s the prognosis of radio talk show host, syndicated columnist and author Dennis Prager. It’s an affliction Prager calls “The Missing Tile Syndrome,” whereby we focus on the missing tiles in our lives instead of enjoying what we have. In this edition of Prager University, Prager shows us how to cure this malady.

Israel’s Strange Bedfellows

In the surprise of surprises, Israel has gained a pair of strange bedfellows in the turmoil of the Middle East. Dick Morris reports that former Israeli adversaries Saudi Arabia and Egypt have now allied with Israel. Even Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah spoke out against the aggression by Hamas saying, “Hamas’ war against Israel has distorted the image of Islam, with its purity and humanity, with all sorts of bad qualities.” Lend an ear as Morris explains.

.50-Caliber Weapons on Border

While President Obama lounges at Camp David, turmoil on the southern border is reaching a fever pitch. In a bold move unfolding over the weekend, drug cartels fired on U.S. Border Patrol agents with .50-caliber weapons, escalating what has been a never-ending disaster. And if that wasn’t enough, while the gunfire ensued illegal immigrants continued their trek across the border, this time on Jet Skis, believe it or not. Fox & Friends weekend crew Heather Nauert, Jon Scott and Peter Johnson Jr. discuss the turn of events.

Beck to Help the Children

Glenn Beck is heading south for the summer. At the risk of harming his career, the controversial political commentator on The Blaze Network is trekking to the Mexico-U.S. border to literally lend a hand to the thousands of illegal immigrant children who have streamed across into our backyards. “Through no fault of their own they are caught in political crossfire,” Beck says. “And while we continue to put pressure on Washington and change its course of lawlessness, we must also help.”

Religious Freedom Wins

Religious freedom celebrated a major victory when the United States Supreme Court struck down the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate in a 5-4 vote. The highly anticipated decision, known as the Hobby Lobby Case, ruled that employers of closely held corporations with religious objections can refuse to cover contraception. Opponents and proponents of the ruling reacted strongly in this report by One America News Network.
