  • Obama will tell America 'do not give in to fear': Third Oval Office address will focus on terror

    The Daily Mail ^ | December 6, 2015 | By CHRISTOPHER BRENNAN and CHRIS PLEASANCE
    President Barack Obama will use his Sunday night address on terrorism to urge the American people not to 'give in to fear' after the California shootings. In only the third Oval Office address of his two terms as Commander in Chief, Obama will also pledge to use 'every single aspect of American power' to combat terrorism. The symbolic use of the Oval Office is likely an attempt by Obama to set a tone of political gravitas equal to the moment after repeated accusations that he underestimated the threat from ISIS. However, Attorney General Loretta Lynch cautioned this morning that the...

    In the first papal address ever given to the United States Congress by a Pope, the Vicar of Christ never mentioned Christ, but rather only Moses as the one who “leads us directly to God and thus to the transcendent dignity of the human being.” Given an historic opportunity to preach Catholic truth to secular power, Francis held up as models for imitation not Christ, nor any of the saints of the Catholic Church, but rather Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, the controversial convert Dorothy Day (a socialist and early women’s rights activist) and Thomas Merton, the Modernist monk whose...

    Attorney General Eric Holder used secretive email accounts under aliases during his tenure at the Justice Department, raising fresh questions about the Obama administration’s compliance with federal records laws as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reels from her own email scandal. Holder has emailed under the nom de plume “Henry Yearwood” in the past, former Justice Department officials say. The Huffington Post reported Tuesday that Holder had used three aliases. The current is unknown. Republicans familiar with the issue said that even when congressional officials traveled to the Justice Department for so-called “in camera” review of documents, Holder’s email...

    WASHINGTON -- Susan Rice, US President Barack Obama's national security advisor, said on Tuesday night that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's acceptance of an invitation to address Congress next month is "destructive of the fabric of the relationship" between Israel and the United States. "We've been fortunate that politics have not been injected into that relationship," Rice said to American journalist Charlie Rose. But "what has happened over the last several weeks, by virtue of the invitation that was issued by the Speaker and the acceptance of it by Prime Minister Netanyahu on two weeks in advance of his election, is...

Netanyahu struck a defiant tone during a campaign event in Israel on Monday, saying he was “determined” to present the case for why Israel opposed the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran “before the members of Congress and the American people.” “This is not a political issue or a party issue, neither here nor there. This is an existential issue, and I approach it...

    President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.

    President Obama’s inaugural address was eloquent and moving in parts. It was also deeply partisan and polarizing, something that is unusual for a day normally devoted to unity and common purpose. But not in Barack Obama’s America. In his inaugural speech he did what he seemingly cannot keep himself from doing: portraying himself and his followers as Children of Light and portraying his opponents as Children of Darkness. You are either with Obama–or you are with the forces of cruelty and bigotry. In Obama’s world, there is no middle ground. He is the Voice of Reason; those who oppose him...

He could send the tape to his office in the district, where the machine would be set up at a local phone number. Residents could call it for free. He thought this was a good idea. So began his weekly speeches.I wrote his first talk. He...

Flames spread quickly through the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors -- overcrowded, littered with cloth scraps, and containing few buckets of water to douse the flames -- giving the factory workers there little time to escape. When the panicked workers tried to flee, they encountered locked doors and broken fire escapes, and were trapped by long tables and bulky machines. As bystanders watched in horror, young workers began jumping out of the...

    As Obama administration officials put into place the first major wave of changes under the health care legislation, they have tried to defuse stiffening resistance — from companies like McDonald’s and some insurers — by granting dozens of waivers to maintain even minimal coverage far below the new law’s standards. The waivers have been issued in the last several weeks as part of a broader strategic effort to stave off threats by some health insurers to abandon markets, drop out of the business altogether or refuse to sell certain policies.

    VIDEO: Delivering the weekly Republican address, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) outlined Republicans’ plan to make health care more accessible and affordable for American families at a price our nation can afford. The address highlights the differences between Republicans’ smart, fiscally responsible reforms and Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) 1,990-page government takeover of health care.

    If the Administration cannot get even simple details right, then how can they cope effectively with the major challenges we confront?Remember the laugh when the White House misspelled Obama's name on an official document relating to Arms Control agreements with the Russians? At the time, it was good for a chuckle. Now, people are starting to wonder if the boys and girls who arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on the Smoke and Mirrors Hopey-Changey express may not be quite up to the job. Take for instance the controversial Presidential address Obama will deliver to schoolchildren on Tuesday. Don't you think...

    To the Editor: The President wants to encourage students to study and stay in school in an address to public schools on September the 8th. That’s commendable. However, the White House’s initial recommendation that teachers nationwide assign students a paper on how to “help the president” the day before his address to the nation on HealthCare does not pass the smell test. In the President’s search for help on a socialist health care bill, he has politicized the public school–its teachers and students. (I am surprised that the White House did not also request that children wear brown shirts to...

    A planned live address to school students by President Barack Obama next week is causing controversy for school districts as some parents object to what they see as partisan politics. The issue, which became a hot-button topic on some radio talk shows this week, left school administrators scrambling to decide whether to allow students to watch the live broadcast...(snip) Some administrators say they are reluctant to interrupt daily lesson plans and wonÂ’t show the address live...(snip) Others will allow campuses to access the speech during the broadcast but will also record it for teachers to show later.

    President Obama will address a joint session of Congress next Wednesday about the nation's health-care system, Democratic officials said Wednesday. Under pressure to seize the initiative on the biggest legislative proposal of his young administration, Obama is expected to add more detail to his vision for health-care reform when he speaks to lawmakers upon their return from an August recess. It is less likely that Obama will release his own detailed proposal, but he will comment more specifically on ideas that have already been offered by others, one administration policy expert said. "He's drawing on what's already out there," said...

    As the Obama Creep Show continues, the president just gave a very strange address on TV. He stood there, warning of the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, and asked people to cough into their sleeves. He warned that older people may become more ill than younger people. He said that people should be aware of their health. He urged people to get flu vaccine injections. He implied that we are on the brink of a disaster on the scale of the 1918 flu which killed 20,000,000 people. Then, after making everyone's hair stand up, he turned and walked away. With all...
