Video: David Wood – Jesus Calls Zakir Naik “Satan”!
Zakir Naik and Ahmed Deedat popularized an argument claiming that the “Sign of Jonah” would be that Jesus would miraculously survive crucifixion. However, when we read one of the chapters where Jesus talks about the Sign of Jonah (Matthew 16), we find Jesus calling Peter “Satan” for claiming that Jesus would not die on the cross. If Jesus called Peter “Satan” for rejecting his death by crucifixion, how can Naik and Deedat expect us to believe that Jesus was telling his followers that he would survive crucifixion? David Wood discusses the issue.
The communist movement known as Antifa (short for Anti-Fascist Action) has sparked violence across the nation. In the wake of their battling despicable white supremacist in Charlottesville, Antifa has begun to gain mainstream popularity.
But unbeknownst to much of the public, the vast majority of Antifa violence isn’t targeted at genuine fascists, but mainstream conservatives and civilians. With help from those who have encountered Antifa, including Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Lauren Southern, Jack Posobiec, and Steve Deace, conservative author Trevor Loudon guides us through the history and ideas behind the Antifa movement, starting with Leon Trotsky and going all the way through the events in Berkeley, CA and Charlottesville, VA.
Video: Robert Spencer vs. Richard Spencer: Counter-Jihad vs. White Supremacy
A number of journalists and bloggers have confused counter-jihadist Robert Spencer with white supremacist Richard Spencer, just as they confuse opposition to jihad terror with racism. In this video, Robert Spencer and David Wood discuss the differences between opposing terrorism and promoting race-based bigotry.
Speaking at Georgetown University on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited Daily WireEditor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro’s controversial appearance at the University of California, Berkeley on September 14 as a prime example of how the Left attempts to shut down free speech in America.
Sessions began the segment of his speech by referring to the leftist, violent group Antifa as “Orwellian-named”:
The Orwellian-named antifascist protestors have successfully shut down numerous campus speaker events in recent months with violent riots. Berkeley was reportedly forced to spend $600,000 and have an overwhelming police presence to simply prove that the mob was not in control of their campus, the “home of free speech.” In advance, the school offered counseling, in advance of this speech they offered counseling to any students or faculty whose sense of safety or belonging was threatened by a speech from Ben Shapiro, a 33-year-old Harvard-trained lawyer, who has frequently been targeted by anti-Semites for his Jewish faith and who vigorously condemns hate speech from the Left or the Right.
Well, in the end, Mr. Shapiro spoke to a packed house, and to my knowledge, no one fainted; no one was unsafe; no one needed counseling.
“I hope,” Sessions joked.
He continued, “Yet after this small victory for free speech, a student speaking to a reporter said, in reaction, ‘I don’t think Berkeley should host any controversial speakers on either side.’ That, perhaps, would be the worst lesson to draw from that episode, I firmly believe.”

Grandstanding. Is Georgetown Law faculty protesting against free speech?
Georgetown Law Profs. issue error-riddled statement before AG Sessions speaks on campus. Who needs fact.
A statement signed by 30 faculty members of Georgetown University protesting Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech on campus Tuesday contained multiple falsehoods.
Sessions spoke at Georgetown’s law school about free speech Tuesday, and the statement was released prior to his speech as an act of protest.
“We acknowledge our colleague’s right to invite Attorney General Sessions to speak on campus,” the letter, signed mostly by law school faculty, stated. “However, we, the undersigned, condemn the hypocrisy of Attorney General Sessions speaking about free speech.”
The letter went on to say, “Sessions’ own office is currently prosecuting Desiree Fairooz for unlawful conduct; her alleged crime is laughing for a few seconds during Sessions’ Senate confirmation hearings last January and then loudly protesting her unlawful arrest.”
However, the office prosecuting Desiree Fairooz is the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colombia, which was led at the time by Channing Phillips, an Obama appointee. Read more of the errors in the Georgetown Law Profs. statement at DailyCaller
what is most troubling is that these anti-free speech beliefs and tactics are not simply embraced by a radical fringe. A recent Brookings Institute study found that a majority of students believe that disrupting speakers to silence them is “acceptable” and one in five students (19%) endorse the use of violence to silence an “offensive” speaker. A plurality of students believe that “hate speech” is not covered by the First Amendment, despite Supreme Court precedent establishing otherwise. DailyWire
As acts of political violence in America increase in regularity, a new poll shows that many college students have no problem with it.
Of those surveyed, a startling 19 percent claimed to support the use of violence to silence speakers they find offensive, the same perspective held by the increasingly violent Antifa groups around the country.
Wanting to see what college students in Washington, D.C. thought of Antifa, Campus Reform took to the campus of American University to ask students their opinion of the violent leftist organization recently labeled a domestic terror organization by the Department of Homeland Security.
Immediately, the students made it clear that they had no problem with the controversial group. CampusReform
The push for government-funded health care used to be just the fringes of the Democratic Party now there is a party consensus for single-payer health care. The Democrat candidates who have shown interest in 2020 are for single-payer.
Video: Global Failures of Single-Payer
The Republican National Committee has released a new video highlighting various global reports that exemplify the failures of single-payer health care systems.
The video was included in an RNC press release Wednesday after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) proposed his “Medicare for All” single-payer health care plan. The RNC video claimed the proposal is unaffordable with a price tag of $32 trillion, and would most likely be paid, in part, with a tax increase.
The video starts with a question, “What does single-payer ‘Medicare for All’ look like in the real world?” The video goes on to feature clips from news reports around the world, including from France, Canada, England and Scotland.
The first clip shows a hospital with the reporter saying, “this morning, there is, what it calls, a humanitarian crisis in public hospitals.” FreeBeacon
David Wood and Robert Spencer video: Allah: The Author of Islamophobia
David Wood: “Politicians and the media often accuse Western critics of Islam of spreading Islamophobia (the irrational fear of Islam). When we turn to Islam’s most trusted sources, however, we find that Islamophobia has a different source—namely, Allah himself.”
