The First Fifteen
Debbie’s First Fifteen addresses one of the hottest topics of the week, the story ofcthe 14-year-old local Muslim student Ahmed Mohamed, who brought to school something he said he had built, and which he called a ‘clock.’ Problem for him and for the school was that it looked exactly like a suitcase bomb. And when he showed it to his English teacher she alerted authorities, who before arresting the student, described his answers to their very logical questions as evasive.
Remember the expression: “See something, say something”? Also, take a look at the boy’s parents: a dad who is a serious and long termIslamic activist, who immediately contacted CAIR, an organization affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, to gain media attention. And the dad told media he didnot have a beef with the school or principal, but with the Irving mayor who months ago supported American Law for American Courts.
Don’t be pummeled by political correctness: this was NOT insensitive or bigoted overreaction by Irving school officials. This has the appearance of a staged event. Guest Judge Jeanine Pirro talks about the GOP Presidential race, particularly in light of her longstanding personal friendship with Donald Trump.
Political correctness is also smothering intelligent discussion of the Syrian refugee disaster. Americans ought to expect their government to vet the refugees who are coming into this country. But the Obama administration isn’t. Why? And the UN admits that 72% of the Syrian refugees are MEN.
Leading ladies Cari Kelemen and Jeni McGarry join Debbie for the second hour. Former US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Robert Jordan calls in to discuss his new book, Desert Diplomat, Inside Saudi Arabia Following 9/11, about serving as ambassador in the two years following 9/11.
Debbie introduces her new website: americacanwetalk.org. Much more information for women who want to better understand how, when and why to speak up for America in these critical times.
The leading ladies talk about the past week’s developments in the Presidential campaign. A questioner at a Donald Trump event looks a lot like a leftist plant. And the Dallas rally for Donald Trump shows his appeal as the one candidate who can’t be bought. Carly Fiorina is on the rise, showing total command of the debate stage. Debbie reports the results of recent surveys of Americans’ knowledge of the content of the Bill of Rights. The results are the reason for this show!
