This week on The Brody File, we are at home with Rick and Karen Santorum, along with their daughter Bella.
Their 6-year-old shouldn't be alive today, according to the doctors. Instead, she's a miracle from God.

Franklin Graham pretty much summed it up when he posted the following remark on Facebook regarding the 21 Christians who were beheaded by ISIS:
"The militant Islamic terrorist group ISIS has released a video called A MESSAGE SIGNED WITH BLOOD TO THE NATION OF THE CROSS showing the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians who had been kidnapped in Libya. Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians? Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world? As we mourn with the families of those 21 martyrs, we’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States. If this concerns you like it does me, share this. The storm is coming."
The storm is indeed coming.

Jeb Bush will go into the 2016 presidential race as the GOP frontrunner but he will be maligned from the start.
Where to begin? Common Core and Immigration Reform will present problems for him. Could the gay marriage issue be a problem, too?
More below from The Washington Examiner:
Conservatives already irked at Jeb Bush over his support for immigration reform and Common Core educational standards are boring in on hints he is warming to same-sex marriage, a no-no among evangelicals who dominate early primaries and caucuses.
Two events this year put them on notice that Bush is backing away from his past hard-line position. First, while calling marriage a “sacrament,” he urged “respect” for gays in committed relationships in what some saw as an effort to finesse the issue slowly winning support among Republicans.
And then the leading 2016 GOP presidential hopeful hired a top campaign aide, David Kochel, an Iowa political pro who has advocated for same-sex marriage rights.
Jeb Bush needs to tread very carefully. It’ll be interesting to watch how he maneuvers this very sensitive issue. Clearly, he’s going to run a GOP primary campaign like a General Election campaign. But in doing so he may be left on the outside looking in when it comes to the General Election.

Newt Gingrich says we are at war with radical Islam…and he’s right. Watch his speech at the Freedom Summit in Iowa below.
He says, “The United States today is losing the war with radical islamists.” And President Obama has a “pathological incapacity to deal with reality.”
Gingrich is calling on major congressional hearings related to radical Islam. More here.
Gov. Bobby Jindal tells The Brody File that, “Islam has a problem” and that Islamic terrorists are, “fools” who, “are going straight to hell.”
The Brody File interviewed Jindal Friday night in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Watch the clip below.

David Brody: The President says these (Islamic terrorists) are just a few lone rangers out there, that this is not what Islam teaches. Do you thing he is discounting this a little bit too much?
Gov. Jindal: I think two things. I think it is odd. If you listen to the State of the Union, the president, I wish he had spent more time talking about the threat radical Islam poses to our country, to our way of life, to those in the West that value our freedom. For some reason he doesn’t like to use the word “Islam” and when we are talking about radical Islam, he doesn’t like to use the word “ terrorist” or “terrorism.”
It is not just rhetoric. When you look at their policies, it’s almost like they want to treat this as a criminal action. That is not what this is.
Secondly, here is my challenge to Muslim leaders, because Islam has a problem. Now I hope and believe that the vast majority of Muslims don’t agree with the actions taken by these radical, terrorist, murdering thugs. But here is what Muslim leaders need to do. It’s not enough to condemn acts of violence. They’ve got to condemn the individuals.
They need to clearly say these are not martyrs. They are not going to enjoy a reward in the afterlife. We shouldn’t be glorifying them.
Instead, they should be saying very clearly these fools are going straight to hell.

Watch The Brody File report from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as the crew reports exclusively on a private pastors training meeting as many get set to run for political office.
It’s the Lord’s army at work. The experience was called the Issachar Training Event arranged by the American Renewal Project. The men of Issachar are mentioned in the Bible. They were, “men who understood the times.” (1 Chronicles 12:32) The Brody File has this behind the scenes look.
This is the beginning stage of what very well could be a turning point in American politics. Included in this report is part of my interview with political operative/influential evangelical David Lane. Lane’s goal is to get 1,000 pastors to run for some sort of political office in 2016. He’s well on his way with this event.
