Judge Jeanine: No Matter Where You Live In America, You Need To Be Afraid
On Saturday night’s Justice with Judge Jeanine, the fiery host’s opening statement was a stern warning about the situation in Iraq and in the world as a result of President Obama’s “feckless” foreign policy.
“Barack Obama left Iraq contrary to the advice of military leaders and those like Senator John McCain who said he left too early,” the Judge said, adding McCain’s comments that the decision was motivated solely by political concerns.
Jeanine calls ISIS leader Abu al-Baghdadi, who was released by President Obama, the “new Osama bin Laden,” and points out he specifically told his American captors he would “see them in New York.”

US weighs alliance with Iran to counter ISIS, boosts presence in Gulf
The Obama administration reportedly is preparing to open direct talks with Iran on possibly cooperating to counter the Sunni militant force seizing large swaths of Iraq and threatening Baghdad, weighing an unlikely alliance in the face of a common foe.
Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday the administration was “open to discussions” with Tehran if they can help end the violence. He told Yahoo! News he would “not rule out anything that would be constructive.”
The deliberations come as the U.S. moved more assets into the region in preparation for a possible mass evacuation of Americans. According to U.S. Navy officials, the USS Mesa Verde is moving into the Persian Gulf with about 500 Marines on board, to help in the event of an evacuation.
It is the fourth U.S. Naval vessel to move into the Gulf. The ship will join the USS George HW Bush, along with the USS Philippines Sea, a cruiser, and the USS Truxton, a destroyer. Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said the ships provide “the commander-in-chief additional options to protect American citizens and interests in Iraq, should he choose to use them.”
