On Tuesday's edition of "Hannity", Rudy Giuliani was among my guests, and among the topics we discussed were Donald Trump's assertion that Muslims in New Jersey celebrated 9/11. What the former New York mayor had to say may surprise you. Click below to watch:
We also addressed the latest Trump/Muslims controversy: the question of whether, as Hillary Clinton insists, ISIS is using Trump in recruitment videos. You can see the complete discussion here, but at least one viewer was tickled by this exchange between me and Juan Williams:
On another free-speech related matter, Todd Starnes brought up the war on Christmas, thereby distressing the delicate lads over at Media Matters.
It was a fast-moving show: Tammy Bruce, Kirsten Powers, KT McFarland, Pete Hegseth, General Bob Scales, Deneen Borelli, Jedediah Bila ...and Brian Kilmeade on the Barbary pirates. We'll post more bits and pieces as they become available. Vikki Cirkovs enjoyed the show:

~As for America's favorite bestselling cat album, Feline Groovy has been flying off the shelves at Amazon, but it's back in stock right now, so order with confidence and get it in time for your Boxing Day party. The CD is also available, as the name suggests, from CD Baby. But, if you can't wait for Santa or the mailman, it can be yours in seconds via digital download from Amazon or iTunes.
~Speaking of Islam and free speech, Richard Moon, a professor who played a peripheral role in trying to save Section 13 during my free-speech battles in Canada a few years back, returns to the fray to consider me, Trump and "the thin line between free speech and hate speech". I've had all these discussions a thousand times. Unfortunately for all these line-drawers, free speech is hate speech: if you hate it and you want it criminalized by the state, then you're no longer in the free-speech business. And, like far too many Canadian academics, Moon checked out of the free-speech biz a long time ago.
~Greg Mann-Laden, one of Nobel Fauxreate Michael Mann's most devoted Mann boys, sallies forth once more with this piece accusing me of "racist dog-whistling" at the US Senate. As Instapundit always says, if you're the one who hears the racist dog-whistle, you're the racist.
~On Wednesday, I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone guest-hosting for Rush on America's Number One radio show. It starts live at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific. And later I'll be sitting in for Sean on "Hannity", coast to coast on Fox News at 10pm Eastern. I do hope you'll tune in for one or the other, as Christmas preparations permit.
