    If elected president, presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney should add some star power by seating Gary Sinise on his cabinet, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Human Events this week in an interview. Gingrich suggested that Romney could make the CSI:NY star, best known for his 1994 breakout role as Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump, his Secretary of Veterans Affairs, saying Sinise cares deeply for military veterans and could bring fresh eyes to the job.

    This is a guest post by a well-known political commentator, the father of Pajama Boy. He is a true "Obama patriot," whose views should matter little after mid-day on January 20th. Here are the thoughts of President Reject Obama:President Elect Donald Trump violated all known rules of common decency by accepting a telephone call from Taiwanese "President" Tsai Ing-wen without My permission. Indeed, Ms. Tsai did as well by placing the call without My permission. Obviously, I would not have granted permission because it was just a trick, intended to embarrass Me and My fundamentally transformed country. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Saturday the...
  • Gov’t Spends $27 Billion Annually On Global Warming — How Much Will Trump Cut?

    President-elect Donald Trump said he’s looking to cut back federal global warming programs, which he claims are hurting U.S. competitiveness. He’s got a lot of work ahead of him: Federal agencies plan to spend $27 billion on global warming-related programs next year. The White House reported to House Republicans that 18 federal agencies combined spent about $22 billion on global warming activities in 2013, but defined global warming much more narrowly than the agencies themselves. Federal agencies want to spend $12 billion on global warming programs in 2017, according to Salon, but the left-wing news site only factored in six...

    Hillary Clinton's campaign has lots of excuses for losing. There's the electoral college, James Comey, the media's alleged over-exuberance in digging into Clinton's email server, etc. But Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday that one particular group is especially to blame: millennials. As Karen Tumulty and Philip Rucker reported from the big election postmortem at Harvard on Thursday night: Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook also acknowledged that her operation had made a number of mistakes and miscalculations, while being buffeted by what he repeatedly described as a "headwind" of being an establishment candidate in a season where voters were...

    Race in the Bible Question: A friend of mine, referencing some sort of black studies program she attended, says that the opening line of the Song of Songs is racist. It says, “I am black and beautiful, Daughters of Jerusalem” (Song 1:5). She tends to be radical, but I must admit I couldn’t really give her an answer. Can you help?— Name and place withheld Answer: The reference is more likely to economic class than to race.

The fund was created in partnership with the National Immigrant Justice Center to "provide immediate legal information, screenings, consultations and representation to individuals who may be at risk for deportation," according to a news release from Emanuel's office. The money will come from the $20 million the city set aside for Emanuel's property tax rebate program, according to city spokeswoman Jennifer Martinez.

    An astonishing discovery has been made during repair work to the Edicule -- the ancient chamber housing Jesus' tomb in Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Scientists have reported extraordinary phemonena that may support the authenticity of the Holy Shroud of Turin. On October 26, 27 and 28, 2016 a group of scientists and religious authorities oversaw the removal of the marble slab that covers the tomb of Christ.

    This past Friday, Donald Trump focused on a second U.S. manufacturing plant that plans to move jobs from Indiana to Mexico due to the NAFTA trade imbalance and the highest-in-the-world corporate taxes of the United States at 35%. Paying the highest business taxes in the world makes it exceptionally difficult to do business in the United States compared to many other parts of the world such as Ireland where the corporate/business tax rate is 11%. Business has thrived in Ireland since the corporate tax rate was lowered to that percentage, resulting in large numbers of new jobs as businesses grew,...

    The world as we know it could come to an end this Sunday. Or it could be just another day. It depends on whom you talk to. This weekend, Italians go to the polls to vote in a referendum on whether or not the country should amend its 1948 constitution. The referendum is the brainchild of Matteo Renzi, Italy's energetic, 41-year-old Prime Minister. His intention is to defang the upper house of the Italian Parliament, the Senato, by cutting its numbers from 315 to 100, thus reducing its powers dramatically, making it more of a consultative assembly.

    The Fed has a very serious problem on its hands. That problem concerns the fact that for seven years the Fed has spread the myth of a “recovery.” I say “myth” because the reality is that when you remove accounting gimmicks, the US has been a “hair’s breadth” away from a recession since 2010. The most obvious gimmick being employed is the phony “deflator” used to understate inflation and overstate growth. Everyone knows that the official CPI measure for inflation is bogus. But the Fed routinely uses a deflator that is even lower that CPI when calculating GDP. This sounds...

    The Obama Administration has agreed to admit nearly 2500 refugees that the Australian government has refused to allow into their country for "security reasons." The refugees are from terrorism "hot spots" and have been excluded for failing to clear the country's vetting process. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va) have complained about the lack of transparency in the President's actions. "In a matter having obvious security implications the President is obliged to consult Congress before agreeing to bring potentially dangerous individuals into the United States," Grassley contended.

Opinion polls conducted until a blackout period began last week showed the "no" vote comfortably in the lead, raising concerns of a political crisis and fueling market volatility.

    My dad told me that after Mao passed away on September 9th, 1976, the entirety of China fell into a forced month-long mourning period. Thousands of make-shift memorial services were set up throughout the country. Government agencies, factories and stores all closed their doors so people could pay their respects to their "great leader." Everyone understood that the unofficial command was that you must cry, and the louder the better. It was dangerous to fake it, because someone standing next to you was just as eager to do the government's evil bidding by policing your display of emotions. In addition...

    If President-elect Donald Trump decides to make good on his campaign pledge to "load up" the prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with new domestic terror suspects caught in the US -- including American citizens -- legal experts say he is asking for an unprecedented constitutional showdown. Voters first received a peek at Trump's stance on Guantanamo Bay back in 2015 when talking points on various policy questions were leaked ahead of a Republican debate. On the issue of whether he would close the detention facility, the memo stated: "No. I would also take away the passports of Americans who...
