    his one went by so fast that most of us seem to have missed it. This past weekend’s Saturday Night Live had not one but two Jewish jokes. One was moderately funny, notable mainly for the fact that it came from the mouth of Senator Bernie Sanders, during a back-and-forth with his doppelganger Larry David. The other, delivered by Weekend Update fake news co-anchor Michael Che, was far more pointed and may just have crossed a line. Here’s Che’s bit: “On his first visit to a U.S. mosque, President Obama called on U.S. television producers to create characters that are...

    That President Obama told a series of brazen lies about Islam in his December 3 Baltimore speech is being well documented by experts on Islam. Obama bizarrely invented a new translation of the word “Islam” itself, saying incorrectly that the word comes from the same root as the Muslim word for peace — salam, as in, peace be with you. In fact, in Arabic, the word Islam means submission, not peace, meaning submission to Allah and the teachings of his prophet, Mohammad. Obama also misquoted Islamic scripture in parts of his speech, even going so far as to suggest that...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was critical of President Obama's visit to a Baltimore mosque during a Friday speech here in Florence, S.C., saying that the president "goes to a mosque and apologizes" as Americans are targeted by terrorists. "Where did they come from?" Trump asked as he spoke about the November terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., referencing the attackers who carried out the killings. "And then President Obama yesterday goes to a mosque and he apologizes. I mean, what's going on?" he added as the crowd booed.

From declaring that the United States is no longer a Christian nation to denying Syrian Christians entry into the country President Obama's distaste for the followers of Jesus are as obvious as the nose on your face. But with less than a year left in his Presidency Obama hasn't given up on dissing Christians at every opportunity.

    President Obama showed his true colors again yesterday by visiting a mosque in Baltimore with ties to radical Islam. The Islamic Society of Baltimore’s former imam has ties not only to the Muslim Brotherhood but the Northern Virginia mosque where the radical Anwar al-Awlaki used to preach. The former imam in question is Mohamad Adam El-Sheikh, who served at the Baltimore mosque from 1983-1989 and 1994-2003. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan, he had moved to the U.S. in 1978 and went on to receive several advanced law degrees as he became involved in the religious community. During...

You can read the entire transcript here, but there were a few highlights: "And since 9/11, but more recently, since the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, you've seen too often people conflating the horrific acts of terrorism with the beliefs of an entire faith.
