Iranian Video Says Mahdi is 'Near'
CBN News terrorism analyst Erick Stakelbeck joined Sean via the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss a chilling new video from Iran that says “Mahdi is near.” The Iranian government sees the current unrest in the Middle East as a signal that the Mahdi, or Islamic messiah, is about to appear. Stakelbeck told Sean that CBN News has obtained a never-before-seen video produced by the Iranian regime that says all the signs are moving into place - and that Iran will soon help usher in the end times. The video shows that the Iranian regime believes the chaos is divine proof that their ultimate victory is at hand. Stakelbeck says in the video Iran claims it is destined to rise as a great power in the last days to help defeat America and Israel and usher in the return of the Mahdi. And it makes clear the Iranians believe that time is fast approaching. You can watch the video from CBN News by clicking here.
Soros' Media Matters Declares War on FOX News
Over the weekend, Politico reported that Media Matters is waging an all-out war on FOX News because they believe "it's not a news organization" and is the "defacto leader of the GOP.” According to Ben Smith from the Politico, the liberal group Media Matters has quietly transformed itself in preparation for what its founder, David Brock, described in an interview as an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel. “They are trying to orchestrate a well-organized attack to silence their critics,” Sean said opening up Monday’s show. “They couldn’t do it in the free and open and competitive market, they couldn’t do it on talk radio, they’re not doing it on cable news, so the only thing left is to smear, besmirch, attack and literally now try and destroy freedom of speech in America because they couldn’t win any other way.” In an interview shared with POLITICO, Brock listed the fronts on which Media Matters — which he said is operating on a $10 million-plus annual budget — is working to chip away at Fox and its parent company, News Corp. They include its bread-and-butter distribution of embarrassing clips and attempts to rebut Fox points, as well as a series of under-the-radar tactics.

Obama's 'Detached Ivy League Approach' to Libya
Sean spoke with Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor to discuss the ongoing crisis in Libya. Krauthammer claims that the war in Libya was crafted by an Ivy League professor. “It has all the classic imprints of sort of what a liberal intellectual would think war ought to be about. And it's constructed in that way,” Krauthammer explained to Sean. “Obama is obsessed with making this look what he would call legitimate in the eyes of the world. He’s is equally obsessed with the idea of relinquishing American command. What he means is I'm getting America into war but I'm getting it out within a week. But what he means is we are getting out by relinquishing command. And that's the worst possible way to do it. You want unity of command and it ought to come from the leading power, that's us. Up until now, that's how the operation has run. And on the ground, it's been effective.” To watch Sean’s entire discussion with Krauthammer please click here.
