6:00 pm
and remember, you can't take it with you. do you have a strange inheritance story you'd like to share with us? we'd love to hear it. send me an e-mail are go to our website, hello, welcome to "justice." i'm judge jeanine. thanks for being with us tonight. tonight isis continues its assault against christians. high opening statement on washington's inability to deal with the increasing threats to america. but first, the annual conservative political action committee, cpac, wrapped up earlier today with their traditional straw poll. here are the results. for the third year in a row, kentucky senator rand paul takes the prize with wisconsin governor scott walker finishing a close second. texas senator ted cruz came in third. followed by dr. ben carson and former florida governor jeb bush in fifth place. and this week we saw a lot of
6:01 pm
great speeches at both cpac and the club for growth. take a look. >> there comes a time in the history of nations when fear and forgetfulness cause a nation to hesitate. to waver. and perhaps even to succumb. when that time comes, those who love liberty must rise to the occasion. will you? will you lovers of liberty, will you rise to the occasion? >> we have a president, a president who draws lines in the sand and fails to act. a president who calls isis the jv club. we need a leader in america who stands up and realizes that radical islamic terrorism is a threat to our way of life and to all freedom-loving people around the world. >> you're going to hear it directly from me and bluntly because i care. if i didn't care, there's to reason to do this. >> but sit down and shut up? >> sometimes people need to be
6:02 pm
told to sit down and shut up. >> the biggest divide we have in this country is not between republicans and democrats. the biggest divide we have in this country is between career politicians in washington. and the american people. >> oh, the naive obama state department. oh. they say we can't kill our way out of war? really? tell that to the nazis. oh, wait, you can't because they're dead. we killed them. >> opposed by a prominent family who seeks to occupy the white house for the third time. the only dynasty i like is the "duck dynasty." >> if i run, i will tell you the king of building buildings, the king of building walls, nobody can build them like trump. that i can promise. >> i believe hillary clinton's responsibility, her refusal to provide an adequate defense for
6:03 pm
benghazi, dereliction of duty should preclude her from higher office. it's time for hillary clinton to permanently retire. >> imagine if we had a commander in chief that understood the way to defeat isis is not to find them a jo we had a president who doesn't travel the world bad mouthing america. after all, that's the u.n.'s job. >> the biggest mistake i made throughout the whole process, i was so eager to fix things, i didn't talk about, i came in and fixed them. >> the president who jammed down the throat obamacare, the stimulus, dodd/frank, we fought. he's now using his executive power to try to carry out his agenda, but over time, we have to start being for things again. there are a lot of other conservatives that vice president been asked. they don't know that they're conservative. if we share our enthusiasm and love for our country and belief
6:04 pm
in our philosophies we'll be able to get latinos and young people that you need to win to get 50. >> they are a religious movement that seeks to take the world back to the 7th century. and it is their stated vow to kill as many americans as people. we didn't start this war. nor did we choose it. but we will have the will to finish it. >> with me now, republican congresswoman marsha blackburn who spoke at cpac this week. good evening, congresswoman. rand paul wins the straw poll for the third straight year. your reaction. >> i am not surprised at all. he was well received. and that really is a crowd -- day love rand paul. they love ted cruz. they love marco rubio. the youth, the energy. and it is a very conservative, libertarian leaning group. >> it seems like they also loved the number 2 who came in the
6:05 pm
straw poll, scott walker. >> scott walker. they certainly did. you know, judge, i think if you were saying who of the governors is leading the way, it is scott walker. people appreciate so much the job that he did in wisconsin. how he took on the unions and how he just got the job done, kept plowing through it. that is going to serve him very well if he goes through this process. >> you were there this week, congresswoman. who were the speakers that impressed you the most? >> well, i tell you, i think sarah palin did a great job. it was a serious speech. carly fiorina did a great job also. i was pleased to see how well so many of our people did. donald trump always ignites the crowd. rand paul just is trying to beef up his foreign policy bona fides if you will. everybody focused on that. that's the great thing. there are plenty of options for 2016. the mood is serious.
6:06 pm
people are focused. and they want to make certain that we win this thing. >> how big an issue do you think immigration is going to be in the selection of the republican nominee for president? >> i think immigration is going to be right there at the top. i think you can put border security, immigration, and actually probably the security agenda all told. national security. retirement security. economic security. job security. you're hearing a lot about that. and immigration is a part of that. so many people -- >> do you think, congresswoman, that that might be the reason that governor jeb bush came in fifth? >> it may have been. i don't know. i do know this. people want to make certain that we get it right, that we secure the border first and that we rein president obama's executive amnesty. people will say, you know, he doesn't have that authority, that belongs to congress.
6:07 pm
so we want to see congress step back in and fix this process. >> and what about terrorism? what about national security? i mean, after immigration, national security, americans are very concerned about that. which of the candidates do you think spoke, you know, strongly about the need for a strong strategy from this country? >> yeah. and that security component with the terrorists, you heard that repeatedly, and that proves marco rubio, several of them brought that up. you heard rand paul's remarks there and the desire for people to see america again. peace through strength. going out here. defining the problem. defining the war. fighting it and winning it. and this is where i thought sarah palin did a terrific job. as she brought the focus back to the veterans and the problems that are there and not to forget about that. it was a different type speech for her.
6:08 pm
i thought it was right on the mark. >> but who of the candidates do you believe has the most experience to deal with the issue of terrorism? >> when you're looking at experience if a foreign policy realm, it's going to be someone who has been at the federal level. i do think that the governors that are there, governor walker and others, are going to be able to bring in people that will help them to develop the expertise that is necessary and assemble a team -- >> but they're not at the federal level. >> you're not. >> you just said that -- >> they're not. it is people that have been in the house and the senate that have had that experience of working through those policy issues, dealing with the issues of the u.n., dealing with the issues of foreign policy, and with the d.o.d. but i think the governors are going to do a great job of bringing people to help them develop the expertise. so much of it is how you make your decisions. >> right. >> and the matrix that you work
6:09 pm
from. and i certainly believe that there -- you're going to see them develop that and bring forward solutions which is what people want to hear. >> all right. congresswoman blackburn, thanks so much for being with us this evening. >> thank you. >> all right. >> with me now, republican strategist and fox news contributor david webb and democratic strategist chris cofinas. all right, gentlemen, your take on rand paul winning this evening. i'll start with you, david. >> i tell you, there's not really much of a surprise there, judge, after all, rand paul has gotten that, you know, strong libertarian grasp through cpac base. the surprise story tonight, though, governor scott walker who didn't put much into it and still comes in second and i would say that a third part of this would be jeb bush who came there, got a lot of boos in the beginning, but turned the audience around as he got a little deeper into issues including immigration and started getting applause.
6:10 pm
so rand paul not a surprise win, but i think the surprise there is that governor walker did well and jeb bush coming in at number five but still turning the crowd around. >> let me ask you a question. you said something interesting that scott walker didn't put much into it. what did you mean by that? >> well, he didn't have this notably large group coming in and saying, okay, we're all here, we're going to push for him in kind of the way ron paul and rand paul would do it, you know, that group that would come in and go out, they'd make a lot of noise. the rand paul supporters were there. the ben carson supporters were there. certainly governor walker had his, but he didn't have obvious support. and it shows that he's gotten a lot of attention recently, and that has helped him show. he went up there and deliver. >> chris, i'm going to go to you. are you surprised rand paul, third year in a row, wins? >> no. i'm not surprised. his whole -- i mean, as kind of, if you will, the leader of the
6:11 pm
libertarian wing of the republican party, he's got a pretty strong, young following. it's kind of unique in that way. so i'm not surprised by it that much. so did barack obama. >> i'm sorry? >> the young following worked for barack obama. >> the question is, does it work for senator paul in the republican primary? now, if you watch his speech and the way he talks about intervention and the way he talks about foreign policy, it doesn't mesh really well, with, you know, some of the other republicans up. they were being very hawkish, very interventionist in their tone. you're going to see this play out in glowing colors. just another, to me, at least, example -- there's some real strong divisions within the republican party, but you're not going to find a middle ground on. you're not going to find a middle ground between rand paul's vision for foreign policy vision for foreign policy or jeb bush's. ri7kwgíoç7iwi]fó⌝ that, judge. here's thing about cpac and
6:12 pm
something it represents. we have something the left doesn't have. we have a 1rcomfab, social conservative, neocon, everywhere in between, come together. there are areas where there's an overlap in agreement. what i saw here, having been on the ground with this from day one, is that people are having a discussion on the issues. goes to why the straw poll was very much more effective under conway and the company because she dealt in issues. instead of just the straw poll about the president, how people are responding on issues of the economy, how they responded on immigration. on national security. on social issues. >> then, david -- >> say either/or. these issues are -- >> not an either/or proposition. >> david, let me ask you one question. hold on, chris. the question i have, david, is what is the most important issue to the republicans, to the american people? let me do it more generically. what is it? >> right now, right now that
6:13 pm
answer, judge, based on what happened at cpac, it's the economy and national security as you break down the polling data, but also as you talk to the people as i did who were there, talk to the activists, talk to the groups. people want to be able to afford a life, have a good life and they want the security. >> economy, national security. >> absolutely. >> chris, your take? what are the most important issues to the american people? >> yeah, the most part, the issues stay relatively the same in terms of the economy, national security. that's not where we leave the question. the question, what are the policies that are going to solve the problems in these issues? when you watch some of these speeches, you know, listen, not going to be surprised that i say this, but i didn't hear anything different you wouldn't have heard the last how many years, last decades? the difference i think the republican party is still struggling with is national elections during presidential years are very different than midterm election and unless they find a way to appeal to the different demographics that come into those election years, they
6:14 pm
can't win. when you look at rand paul -- >> chris, the american people -- let me get this final thing in there. >> yeah, sure. >> the american people are not happy with the way foreign policy is being handled. >> they may not -- let's say i just gave you the point that they're not happy. in terms of national election, in a presidential year, that is not going to be the defining issue. if republicans go out -- listen, i hope they do. if they go out and make foreign policy the key issue, i mean, i hate to tell you that even if the cpac conference, republicans, libertarians were supporting a noninterventionist foreign policy. >> you know what, chris? chris is wrong on this. he's putting it in the hands of just the politicians. the american people -- you can laugh all the you want. >> well, no. what i'm laughing about -- >> hang on. let him finish. >> let me finish, chris. the american people, and this is not about what happens at cpac, they're defining the issues based on the realities before them. there's a healthy debate to be had about foreign policy, but there's a healthy debate to be
6:15 pm
had about what is the right foreign policy footing for a world where american leadership i have the worst cold with this runny nose. i better take something. dayquill cold and flu doesn't treat your runny nose. seriously? alka-seltzer plus cold and cough fights your worst cold symptoms plus your runny nose. oh, what a relief it is. ♪ they lived. ♪ they lived. ♪ they lived.

so i didn't want it to go into the history books, to be documented as just a random act of violence. it went to state courts versus federal courts, although ari's case -- ari was -- his civil rights were violated. he was in a van load of students, there was 15 boys on the van. >> religious students. >> all religious, obviously. they were yamakas on their head and hats so they were identifiable jewish students. and in this video confession, he said he saw them, and they were on top of each other and then he began shooting at the van, first with the uzi which jammed and continuing with the glock. >> at that time, devorah, it was 1994. not that many people knew about terrorism. we had not yet we had not yet experienced 9/11. what was it in you that made you realize that the designation of
6:45 pm
this was so critical? not just to you but for the country? >> well, i first -- once this happened, i was an ordinary soccer mom. i was every mother living in the united states of america. my son was a regular teenager who played basketball, who went school every y. was just a regular student. ay it was a quick study. learni this, i started to see what was going on all over the world. that this was the beginning of. many things to follow. >> all right. let's fast forward. you've got the ft. hoods?$ shooting. you've got the you've got the oklahoma beheading. and i don't have to go and i don't have to go through all of it. there's still a reluctance on a part of our administration to identify terrorists as muslim extremi extremists, islamists. extremists, islamists. why do youñ speak&g÷
6:46 pm
administration. i will only say -- i will only say -- >> are >> are they wrong? >> well, it was very clear to me that it is extremely important to identify what the real thing is to the purposes of history, statistics, understanding what the threat is. and for me it was crystal clear. >> all right. >> ari's case was probably the only one in the history of the united states of america that was actually changed. >> that was changed. >> the only one. >> because of what you did. look, you're from brooklyn. your son, ari, was shot and killed in brooklyn. this week, three men from brooklyn, i think one was arrested elsewhere, looking to support isis. your reaction? >> well, there are cells that are operating within this country all over the place. isis is not just operating outside this country. the problem is we have to fight terrorism within and without. judge, i have to tell you this, i am fourth generation american.
6:47 pm
an american jewish woman. i will fight my entire life terrorism. to have to have my son murdered in this country which is a land of the free and the home of the brave, is actually somethingnf6u that = as a result oft you went through, so many people that i've seen in my law enforcement days, i mean, you turned it into a positive. you now lecture to#yfú law ë country. is there hope for our country now? or are we or are we headed for some dark days? >> well, i don't want to be the doom, but i think it will get p and i think we have some bad days ahead of us. >> all right. sary of f tson'. andb5é you built a jewish children's museum and they have having a gala tomorrow night.w:ñ again, you put your energies into something ó> quickly about the museum.shp >> i truly believe that it's all
6:48 pm
about the chirp. i think as we know with%a,th extremists, they teach the children from very young age that martyrs, et cetera. i have done the opposite with it. i truly believe that my museum is the answer to terrorists. >> how many have gone through that museum? >> 1.5 million and more. >> devorah, my friend, good to have you here. >> thanks for having me on, judge. >> >> all right. and moving on to news today that an egyptian court has declared hamas a terrorist organization saying hamas is targeting both civilian/& couq the decision. hamas officials condemning today's decision and urging egypt to reverse a r(t&háhp &hc% ambassador to the u.s. danny.
6:49 pm
ambassador? >> yes, good evening, >> yes, good evening, judge. >> >> ah, good evening ambassador. good to have you with us this evening. what what if anything will the designation of hamas aspimj a terrorist organization bywy eg accomplish? >> well i believe first >> well i believe first of all, it shows the literacy of president sisi and egyptian authorities which respond to the real murder of the civilians, egyptian soldiers in sinai on an ongoing basis but not only that, hamas which is a branch of the muslim brotherhood is very actively vying to undermine and doe pose the legitimate regime. >> well, actually, the muslim brotherhood recently called for the death of president el sisi. but what's curious to me, ambassador, is the fact that with egypt closing off some of the tunnels saying the muslim
6:50 pm
brotherhood is terrorist, hamas is a terrorist o, they're benefiting israel and there's a connection between israel and egypt in protecting their citizens. >> absolut >> absolutely, judge. what we see today in the new middle east today, the decision is not necessarily between .gwb and arabs and it's along the ethical or religious or political lines necessarily but along radical. and7 os radical islam, extreme islamists, be it isis or ñ really bent on destroying the middle east, destroying the world as we know it so it is very important that in importan important country like egypt is leading the charge because at the end of the day it's going to take the entire international community. we just need the we just need the leader to lead
6:51 pm
the international community. >> thanks so much for being with us, ambassador. it's the last chance to vote. why is the world not stopping the assault against m facebook or tweet me @judge jeanine.

6:55 pm
we're back with devor devorah halbersham whose son was shot in 1994 by an arab terrorist. we just we just talked about that egypt declared hamas a terrorist organization. what is what is interesting is that apparently hamas when your son was murdered so many years ago came out and said that they were proud that this man shot your son on the brooklyn bridge, et cetera. what is your tame on finally having hamas declared a terrorist organization by another muslim country. >> i think the muslim countries are coming out. i think that one of our best allies these days in fighting. many muslims have been murdered in this. but hamas has been setting up cells and nests in this country since 1994. it isn't just the beginning of
6:56 pm
it now it began back then. it's been an ongoing place. the mosque that ari's murderer came out of is a hamas mosque. and continues to be a hamas mosque and they have been supportive of many terrorist attacks in this country. it's just that nobody was paying attention to it because until now they only looked at hamas as murderers of jews in the region, israelis and jews but not outside of that country. >> things are going to change. devorah, thanks for joining us this evening. follow me on facebook and twitter. see you ne see you next week. really? alka-seltzer severe cold and flu relieves your worst flu symptoms plus runny nose.
