ELISABETH SABADITSCH-WOLFF, free speech advocate and president of the ACT! for America Austrian chapter, reports on her experiences at the recent conference held by the UN Alliance of Civilizations, an organization working closely with the OIC to limit freedom or speech supposedly in the name of religious acceptance.

Foundation for Defense of Democracies President Clifford May joins Frank to discuss our current foreign policy woes, including the practice he terms, “Borrowing from the Communists to pay the Jihadis.”  May states the irony of the historically unprecedented transfer of wealth from the West to the Middle East, made possible by borrowing from China.  And what is it supplying the Chinese?  “I don’t think they’ll use it for No Child Left Behind programs…[or] for health care.  They’ll use it to build up their military,” says May.  He also gives his take on the perils of Rostam Ghasemi of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps taking command at OPEC, the Neo-sovietism policies of Russia under Putin and Medvedev and finally how economic dynamism can bring America back to dominance.

Then, Barry Rubin, Director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center documents the latest development in Turkey’s transformation towards stealth Islamist government after the mass military resignations, last week.  The Editor of the Turkish Studies journal explains how Turkey has inched closer and closer to an Islamic Theocracy as nearly every system from the media, courts, to education and now the army has been overtaken by the radical Justice and Development Party.  Rubin also unravels the guiding philosophy of the Obama Administration towards Islamic extremism, in a word: denial.

One of our favorite Senators, Jim Demint, author of The Great American Awakening: Two Years that Changed America, Washington and Me gives a behind the scenes look at the Senate in a time of the Tea Party, town halls and rallies across the country.  “I have no power at all unless I’m standing with millions of Americans who feel the same way,” says the Senator, who explains that it is really the next two years that will determine the future of our nation.  Via the Senate Conservatives Fund, Demint helped elect Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey and others last November, and explains how he will continue to fight in the election year ahead, and why now more than ever we must preserve “Peace through Strength.”

Finally, Gordon Chang previews Vice President Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to Beijing, which he affirms will be another opportunity for the Administration to bow down to China.  “The Chinese should be coming to Washington from China, not the other way around,” says Chang, as he predicts they will lecture the U.S. on the debt and the impending arms package with Taiwan.  The Forbes contributor explains the importance of Taiwan, why we must sell the Taiwanese all they are willing to buy and China’s strategic play in Australia to pry them away from their alliance with America.
