    While there are a couple of polls floating around that suggest Barack Obama has - at least with members of his own party - enjoyed a slight popularity resurgence since the midterms, the overall trend remains the same. His policies and approval ratings remain underwater. They’ve been that way for a long time, and the election results bear out the numbers. However, even in the worst polls of the general populace, Obama lands at around 39%-41%. Unfortunately, there’s one place where he falls far, far short of even that low bar. According to a new service published by the Military...

    Man-made global warming is saving the Earth from “another ice age,” White House Science Advisor Eric Holdren says in a new video promoting man-made global warming theory: “We know beyond any reasonable doubt that humans are the main cause of the warming of the earth’s climate that has been measured over the past few decades. The warming is unequivocal. “While the climate of the earth has changed over the millennia as a result of natural factors – principally changes in the tilt and orientation of the earth’s axis and rotation, and in the shape of its orbit around the sun...

    It was not such a long time ago that former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton was viewed by the Democratic poobahs and her worshiping public minions as a shoe-in for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, and ultimately the White House. But life happens, and life has found Hillary Clinton. In a recent Politico article, "Delay of Game", we're getting another read-between-the lines indication that Clinton, Inc. a.k.a. “Billary” (Bill + Hillary = Billary) is in rethink/regroup mode. This run for the presidency is as much Bill’s as it is Hillary. And she will need him in full...

Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of New Jersey was invited by Democrat Rep. Rush Holt (NJ). Chebli praised Allah as, "The most gracious, the most merciful" and then declared "Praise be to Allah, the cherisher, the sustainer of the world; the most gracious, the most merciful master of the day of judgment."

    The English word “sacrament” has its roots in Latin and Greek. At one time the word meant, “a solemn and sacred oath.” Roman Catholics believe that there are seven sacraments which Christ instituted. These sacraments are visible rituals that are signs of God's presence. They are believed to channel God's grace to all those who receive them. The traditional seven sacraments are usually listed in the order in which they follow a human life from birth to natural death. They are: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Confession, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Anointing the Sick. Over and against these traditional sacraments are...

    Australia's Senate has voted to repeal the carbon tax, a levy on the biggest polluters passed by the previous Labor government. Prime Minister Tony Abbott, whose Liberal-National coalition beat Labor in an election last year, had made the repeal a central aim of his government. Politicians have been locked in a fierce row about the tax for years. Labor says it helps to combat climate change, but the Liberals claim it penalises legitimate businesses. The Australian Senate voted by 39 to 32 votes to repeal the tax. Introduced in July 2012, it charges the 348 highest polluters A$23 (Ł13; $22.60)...

According to a press release, an effort known as ‘Make Them Listen’ will employ protesters across the nation – including Alaska and Hawaii – willing to display signs and voice outrage over the current federal policy of de facto amnesty. Among the concerns expressed by organizers is the fact that the ongoing influx of illegals is bringing with it an increased risk of disease and violence....

    On Tuesday's broadcast of "The O'Reilly Factor," Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer gave his solution to the crisis at the southern United States border: a fence. He argued that securing the border with a fence is a proven method and he pointed to other places where it has worked, including at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C. "Alright, here's what I've been on for years," Krauthammer said. "You start with a fence. It's very simple. People say, 'Oh, fences don't work. You make a ladder.' Well, then you build two fences, triple strand fences. San Diego did that in the...

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, warns that the United States will become a third world nation if the federal government does not enforce its immigration laws. Speaking to “The Sean Hannity Show,” the Republican lawmaker said the country will be destroyed if the U.S. continues to allow thousands of immigrants to cross the border illegally. “You’ve got to follow the law.

    President Barack Obama continued his “no apologies” tour Tuesday afternoon with what is quickly becoming a familiar refrain. In a speech given near the Key Bridge in Washington, D.C., Obama asked Congress to continue funding for the Federal Highway Trust Fund before starting up the blame game. “So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class—not ideas that are unique to me,” said. “This isn’t Obama Bridge. It’s Key Bridge. But the Republicans have said no to raising the minimum wage; have said no to fair pay; they’ve said...

    Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution states that the President “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Since treason and bribery are off the table, we are left with “other high crimes and misdemeanors.” There is no set definition for this term, but we can understand it as it was used and understood in the late 18th century. The phrase derives from English parliamentary law and was first used in 1386 against Michael de la Pole, the 1st Earl of Suffolk for basically breaking a...
