    Long before Michelle Obama became First Lady, her mother had misgivings about her marrying a young man named Barack Obama — because he was biracial. In a Chicago TV interview that aired during Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate campaign — and newly resurrected by Michelle Obama biographer Peter Slevin in a book due out next month — Marion Robinson confessed to being “a little bit” wary about her future son-in-law being the product of a white mom and black dad. But it could’ve been worse, according to Robinson. “That didn’t concern me as much as had he been completely white,” Robinson...

    The First Lady visited the "Ellen Show" today and lamented to Ellen Degeneres just how 'hard' her life is in the White House. Ellen: "Are you used to living in it?" Mrs. Obama: "First it was like drinking from a fire hydrant. …it was hard." She explained in more detail. "The one thing people don't realize is, we can't do little things like open windows." Outside the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue walls is just as rough. "I haven’t been in a car with the window open for like seven years...I look forward to getting in a car and rolling down the...

    In his most recent attempt to centralize the federal government’s grip on America, Obama has launched his “21st Century Policing” pilot program, COPS, in six cities across the country. “Obamalaw,” is yet another overreach of Constitutional authority to fundamentally transform the nation, this time by taking away local police enforcement rights and putting new rules and regulations in place as dictated by the President and Eric Holder’s Justice Department. Born out of the perception that racism is rampant amongst city law enforcement agencies, this new plan is intended to address the issue by trampling on local rights. Obama is using...

    The end is finally in sight for Microsoft’s long-fraught Internet Explorer. At the Microsoft Convergence conference yesterday in Atlanta, Georgia, Chris Capossela, Microsoft’s head of marketing, said that the new flagship browser for Windows, which was announced in January and is codenamed Project Spartan, will not be associated with the Internet Explorer brand. While Internet Explorer will still exist on Windows 10 for compatibility purposes, it will take a back seat to the new browser.

    President Obama is under fire from The Washington Post’s fact-checker over a series of recent far-fetched gun claims, including suggesting the country’s homicide rate is higher than that of other industrialized nations “by like a mile.” The comments, made during a stop in South Carolina last week, earned the president three out of four "Pinocchios" -- the fact-checker's scale for measuring inaccuracy.

    We've all heard this before. If the petrodollar is not the currency in which the world trades in oil. the US will collapse economically. There's nothing new except for the fact that according to the video the US overthrew Qaddafi and Saddam because they threatened to stop trading oil in dollars. Not that it is the definitive cause for the invasion of Iraq or even the truth of why we invaded,it does give me some rationale however fictitious it may be for why we did in fact overthrow Saddam.

    Stephen Hawking may be getting some Hollywood love for "The Theory of Everything," a biopic about his life that earned actor Eddie Redmayne the best actor Oscar at last night's Academy Awards. But that hasn't stopped the world-famous physicist from issuing yet another warning about humanity's impending doom. Human aggression threatens to destroy us all, Hawking said during a tour of London's Science Museum last week. The remark was in response to a question about what human shortcomings he would most like to alter. Hawking suffers from a neurological disease similar to Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)....

    Hillary Clinton’s camp late Sunday issued a significant clarification about the steps they say were taken to review thousands of personal emails before they were deleted, claiming her team individually read “every email” before discarding those deemed private. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill made the clarification in a written statement to Fox News. This comes after the former secretary of state’s office revealed last week that while more than 30,000 “work-related” emails were turned over to the State Department, nearly 32,000 were deemed “private” and deleted. This admission raised questions over how her team decided to get rid of those messages....

    —Warning of Egypt’s possible collapse under economic pressures and the threat of rampant terror, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi called on the United States over the weekend to resume military aid that has been partially frozen because of the political coup that brought Sisi to power and because of alleged human rights violations. Terming Egypt, with its population of 90 million, “the bedrock of stability in the area,” Sisi told television interviewer Charlie Rose that if Egypt is destabilized it would have an impact on neighboring Israel and on Europe as well. “Egypt is facing many threats and its public wants...

    Vengeful Obama confidante Valeria Jarrett went through back channels to leak Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to the press, an explosive new report reveals. The New York Post‘s Edward Klein reports that a source familiar with Bill Clinton said that the former president told him: “The Obamas are out to get us any way they can.” Jarrett blamed the Democratic party’s 2014 midterm losses on the Clintons’ insinuations that Obama’s unpopular policies, including executive amnesty for foreigners gobbling up American jobs, made the president an “albatross” around the reigning party’s neck. Jarrett, Obama, and Obama’s wife greeted...

    Former Secretary Clinton use of private email for her state correspondence with foreign dignitaries and persons removed her actions from public scrutiny and political accountability, converting her State Department post into a private diplomatic backchannel. Her actions have the potential to be among the most dangerous precedents for use of executive power. According to Article II of the Constitution, the “president” is one person who is vested with “[t]he executive power,” and who delegates such power to his agents. Our Framers did not insert that clause just to empower a president; they did it to make the president and his...

    All this, ISIS (Sunni) vs Iraq (Iran-Shiite) mortal enemies from Islam's earliest days have fought this same battle for centuries. The enmity for each other is so intense, they consider each other more abominable than Jews. As an illustration, Iran announced that the first order of business once their nuclear aspirations have been realized was to nuke Saudi Arabia's oil fields, their number one Sunni arch enemy. Notice, Israel is not their first target.

    A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel's activities told FoxNews.com. The fact that both Democratic and Republican sides of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations have signed off on the probe could be seen as a rebuke to President Obama, who has had a well-documented adversarial relationship with the Israeli leader. The development comes as Netanyahu told Israel’s Channel Two television station this week...

    Why did God invent New Media? Because when the First Lady of the United States appeases a lunatic Islamic regime like Iran, the mainstream media is going to cover that fact up. The fact here is that Wednesday at the White House the First Lady celebrated Nowruz, which White House Dossier describes as the “Iranian festival of spring that marks the beginning of the Persian new year.” There is absolutely nothing wrong with honoring the many events celebrated within this magnificent e pluribus unum melting pot of ours. The problem is that this is not about honoring a group of...
  • URGENT: White House Confirms Obama Planning Huge New Executive Order

    Here we go again. White House press secretary Josh Earnest has officially confirmed that President Barack Obama plans to implement yet another executive order. This one is slated to send tax rates skyrocketing through the roof! The hoopla started last Friday, when Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders submitted a letter to the White House that asked the president to nullify six currently active corporate tax breaks. Closing these tax breaks would raise $100 billion in a decade, but also cost us innumerable jobs. When questioned about this letter by Ed Henry, senior White House correspondent with Fox News, Earnest first tried...

    We surmised yesterday that the Obama administration had the idea to go to the United Nations to pass by resolution what Congress would never agree to: a lifting of sanctions on Iran in exchange for a nearly worthless deal in which Iran would keep thousands of centrifuges and get a 10-year glide path to nuclear breakout. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), seeing what was afoot, demanded an explanation from the White House, calling such a scheme an “affront to the American people.” On Thursday evening, after being pressed by irate Republicans, the National Security Council issued a defensive statement insisting that...

    The Iranian government is urging the United States to go straight to the United Nations to finalize any agreement reached in the coming weeks regarding Tehran’s contested nuclear program without seeking congressional approval. Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister and top negotiator, suggested in a recent interview that the U.N. Security Council should be responsible for approving any agreement reached between Western powers and Tehran over its nuclear program, a proposal that the Obama administration entertained on Thursday. The State Department argues that a nonbinding agreement with Iran—one that would not be subject to congressional oversight or approval—could be more enforceable...

    The Internet regulations the FCC quietly passed last month have finally been disclosed. The LA Times reports: “The FCC’s action was strongly opposed by AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., and other broadband providers as well as most Republicans. AT&T hinted at a likely legal challenge of the regulations Thursday.” Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller cross-referenced the nearly 400 pages of new regulations and found the organization Free Press referenced 46 times, while making the case for the so-called “net neutrality” regulations. He also pointed out who is behind the group: “It has received $2.2 million in donations from progressive...

    Hillary Clinton was emailing more than 100 government officials for four years on a personal account. Her office even says the practice was “widely known” to those colleagues, since her address was visible. So why no red flags? While Clinton says she followed the rules, questions are mounting over why administration and government information security officials apparently did little to nudge her back into using the government system – which various guidelines make clear is preferred, if not legally required. Part of the problem may be that a key IT office has been plagued with problems and confusion for years....

    What are the potential consequences for Hillary Clinton for using a personal email account during her time as secretary of state? On Wednesday, the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued her a subpoena for all communications related to the investigation. Judge Andrew Napolitano sat down with Martha MacCallum to go over the two potential criminal investigations that the former First Lady could face. 1. The less serious possibility is an investigation similar to what was brought against Gen. David Petraeus, who pleaded guilty this week for keeping classified documents in an unsecured location.

Now, Lockheed Martin has worked out that the technology could also be used for stopping a car without resorting to lethal force. The company has been testing out a new fiber-optic laser, called ATHENA, which was able to burn through the engine manifold of a truck that was over a mile away. For the purposes of the test, the truck had its engine and drive train running, although the vehicle itself was...

    At her first public event since voters learned that she used personal email to handle sensitive government business for four years, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton avoided any suggestion or shadow of the scandal, instead delivering a dress rehearsal campaign speech to an audience of pro-choice advocates. As for her long-deferred announcement about the 2016 presidential race, Clinton did no more than repeat old quips about the difficult question of whether to run for president, at one point asking: “I suppose it’s fair to say: don’t you someday want to see a woman president?”

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is considering a ban on M855 ball ammunition, which pro-gun groups have said is among the most popular cartridge used for the AR-15 rifle and is frequently used for sporting purposes like hunting, because of its so-called “armor-piercing” capabilities. “It would be fair to say, as we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave...

    The new rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission are a win for smaller Internet-based companies. Internet service providers like Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile now must act in the "public interest" when providing a mobile connection to your home or phone, under rules approved Thursday by a divided Federal Communications Commission. The plan, which puts the Internet in the same regulatory camp as the telephone and bans business practices that are "unjust or unreasonable," represents the biggest regulatory shakeup to the industry in almost two decades. The goal is to prevent providers from slowing or blocking web traffic,...

    The Obama years will be forever known as the Dark Ages of US history, a time of political, cultural, and economic deterioration. We have yet to see if they will lead to the fall of the American republic. In the Obama years, the lie became not only a campaign strategy or a means to enact damaging policies, but an institution of government: the Presidency itself, a lie of monstrous proportions guarded by the complicit and the willingly ignorant. In the Obama years, the Congress finally clearly demonstrated that although we have elections, there is no longer a government representing its...

    The B-52 has only been able to carry smart weapons on its external pylons, with its internal weapons bay being relegated to nuclear and dumb bombs, as well as some older cruise missiles. Now, the iconic 60 year old Stratofortress is finally getting a new 'smart' rotary weapons rack and other upgrades that will more than double its smart weapons punch.

Even as the B-52's utility morphed over the decades (from a nuclear interdiction option, to a carpet bomber,...
