Obama says 'peace' when there is no peace

During his recent legacy tour, President Barack Obama was speaking in Germany when he said: "We are fortunate to be living in the most peaceful, most prosperous, most progressive era in human history." He noted it's been decades since the last war between major powers.

Pentagon analyst Robert Maginnis, however, has no problems coming up with more than half a dozen bloody conflicts around the world right now. "The civil war in Libya, certainly the civil war in Egypt, you have Congo, you have Sudan, you have Nigeria, most of Tunisia and Algeria are in chaos, certainly Syria and Iraq," he lists.

And here at home, says the retired Army officer, Americans are more worried than ever with violence coming to U.S. shores. "The world's more complex and more dangerous than it's ever been before," he tells OneNewsNow.

As for being "progressive," the president cited some examples. "Around the world we're more tolerant, with more opportunity for women and gays and lesbians as we push back on bigotry and prejudice," said Obama.

Robert Knight with the American Civil Rights Union has a different definition. "[What we have is] more collectivism, more perverse sexuality, more government growth, higher taxes, more control – anything that denigrates Christianity. The word is now 'progressive.'"
