Our Supreme Leader is a Supreme Fool

(Scott Johnson) I know that Barack Obama fancies himself a grand strategist the likes of which the world has never seen. (Okay, that may be true, but not in the way he thinks.)

Rubio steps up

(Scott Johnson) Marco Rubio took to the Senate floor this afternoon to speak about Israel in the context of the Obama administration’s unremitting hostility to its elected leadership (video below).
