    Obama administration officials broke two federal laws when they exchanged ( Taliban) warriors for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the government’s top investigative office said in a legal report Thursday. Officials should have given (congress) a 30-day heads-up, and also illegally switched money from one account to another to conduct the swap, the (Government Accountability Office) said.President Obama had defended the swap as a legal use of his powers as commander in chief, and said he had to keep Congress in the dark in order to preserve secrecy in the delicate negotiations with the Taliban. /#ixzz3B3yTcH2g Follow us: @washtimes on Twitter

    Obama has turned a victory into a failure. Check it out: I am constantly amazed at the tendency of some to use the perspective of hindsight to condemn decisions of those who did not possess the supernatural gift of predictive prophecy at the time they made their decisions. So when a friend asked whether I believe that those who supported George W. Bush’s decision to attack Iraq should feel remorse, considering the chaos and genocide occurring there now, I said “no,” with some qualifications. I believe that Bush and his team based their decision to invade Iraq on the best...

    ADAMS, Mass. – Vandals struck an Adams church Saturday painting graffiti on the walls, including swastikas. A door at First Baptist Church in Adams, Mass. would always be left open for the organist, Larry Bishop. But Saturday night Bishop realized he wasn't alone. Bishop has been the organist at First Baptist for 15 years. He said he went to the church late Saturday night to practice when he heard two people talking upstairs. “I heard one of the voices say to the other, ‘Wow, there's a lot of good stuff here,'” he described. “And I'm thinking, well, that doesn't sound...

    Less than two years after four Americans got massacred in a terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya the Obama administration is disregarding congressional opposition to lift a decades-old ban on Libyans attending flight schools and training as nuclear scientists in the United States. The ban was implemented in 1983 after a wave of terrorist incidents involving Libyans. The African nation continues to be a hotbed of terrorism and in fact, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli was recently evacuated because violence between rival militias has created a deadly environment. Many other foreign governments have also shut down...

    Most voters agree with Republicans in Congress that the president does not have the right to change laws without Congress’ approval, but they doubt a House lawsuit will stop him from acting on his own. The House voted last week to sue President Obama for exceeding his constitutional authority by making changes in the new national health care law after it had been passed by Congress. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 22% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the president should be able to change a law passed by Congress if he thinks the change will...

Gosh Valerie, how about Hamas” Are their actions defensible? Hamas hides rocket launchers in schools and hospitals, using civilians to protect their weapons. Is this defensible? Really?

    U.S. Rep. (Michele Bachmann) and seven other congressmen have formally introduced (a bill) that would designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and impose sanctions on its supporters in the U.S. Though the chances of the bill passing with a Democrat majority in the Senate and Barack Obama as President are next to zero, it will force members in each House of Congress to pick a side on a matter of tremendous historical significance.

    First, Michelle Obama seized control of your child’s school lunch and made it “healthy.” Now, the First Lady wants to change the way you buy groceries.

The goal is to steer consumers toward fruits and vegetables – and away from sugar- and fat-laden items. The plan is in line with “Michelle Obama’s stated second term agenda to ‘impact the nature of food in grocery stores,’” reports While the...

In order to comply with the Michelle Obama-inspired regulations, Tennessee schools will only be allowed to have bake sales 30 days per school year. State Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman said it was “quite remarkable” that food fundraisers would be regulated by how many days they can be held, noting that this will prevent high school sports teams from holding weekly food fundraisers,...

    President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate. At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population. “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming....

I just finished reading a blockbuster Wall Street Journal article about how ( saturated fat does not cause heart disease.). That’s right, folks. All those fat-free, heart-healthy diets backed by the American Heart Association and everyone else are bogus.) It seems the entire “saturated fat is...

    Dale doesn't exactly look like an international crypto-criminal. He's soft-spoken, baby-faced, and a senior at an Ivy League college. But every couple of weeks the political science major logs onto the Silk Road, an online black market that has been described as an "amazon.com of drugs" to buy wholesale quantities of "molly" (also known as MDMA, a particularly "pure" form of ecstasy), LSD and magic mushrooms. Some of these will be for his personal use, and the rest he'll flog to less tech-savvy classmates at a mark-up of up to 300%. On a good weekend, he can net a profit...

    The link between domestic sex trafficking and racial discrimination while undeniable, is not immediately clear. What is clear; however, is that the demography of domestic sex trafficking is very different from the racial make up of the United States. In a recent report by the Office of Victims of Crime, of the confirmed sex trafficking victims, 40.4 percent of victims were African-American. This is almost four times higher than the percentage of African-Americans living in the United States......

    Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, victims of human trafficking include children involved in the sex trade, adults age 18 or over who are coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts, and anyone forced into different forms of "labor or services," such as domestic workers held in a home, or farm-workers forced to labor against their will. The factors that each of these situations have in common are elements of force, fraud, or coercion that are used to control people. Then, that...
  • GOP foolish to think ObamaCare is fixable

    Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), the No. 4 House Republican, is walking back comments attributed to her that ObamaCare can’t be repealed. But she’s not the only one suggesting Congress merely make changes within the framework of the health law. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says the goal is to get the law “fixed.” It seems many GOP lawmakers still haven’t read the law, or they’d know the framework is corrupt. Even Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) speculated Friday that repeal is unlikely because it will be “difficult to turn the clock back.” Nonsense. Even by the most inflated administration...

    WASHINGTON – A surge in the number of aggressive Al Qaeda affiliates and like-minded groups the Middle East and North Africa poses a serious threat to U.S. interests and allies, the State Department said Wednesday in reporting a more than 40 percent increase in terrorist attacks worldwide between 2012 and 2013. The department also singled out Iran as a major state sponsor of terrorism that continues to defy demands it prove its atomic ambitions are peaceful even as Washington pursues negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear program. The most lethal attacks in 2013 were conducted by the Taliban in Afghanistan,...

    Liberal Gun Grabbers like to pretend that firearms can only be used to commit crimes. They do this in an effort to scare people into believing that our nation needs more gun control – when in reality we need less. The truth is that firearms are used far more often ( to protect innocents from evildoers) than vice versa. Another example of this happened (just a couple of days ago in Texas).A Good Samaritan appeared seemingly out of nowhere with his gun drawn, ordering the criminals to stop what they were doing and exit the car. Caught red handed, the...
  • Pentagon to destroy $1 billion worth of ammo. This makes sense because…?

    Why is the Pentagon to destroy ammunition for our men and women in uniform while the Department of Homeland Security is buying up millions of rounds of ammunition? As we asked last week, why are we decimating our military while many government agencies are arming up?You really have to wonder why, according to USA Today, “The Pentagon plans to destroy more than $1 billion worth of ammunition although some of those bullets and missiles could still be used by troops, according to the Pentagon and congressional sources. It’s impossible to know what portion of the arsenal slated for destruction —...

    It is becoming increasingly hard to tell whether Obamacare is the law of the land, or just the law of the parts of the land that don’t reside in (or aren’t in the good graces of) the executive branch. One wonders: Is it really too much to expect an administration that championed the passage of a 2,700-page overhaul of American medicine to live by the same law it was so eager to impose on others? The Congressional Research Service (CRS)(has just released a memo (posted here at the 2017 Project) listing deadlines that Obamacare imposed on the Obama administration—or, if...

    Government officials retreated Saturday from federal property in Gold Butte, Nev., leaving behind some 389 “trespass cattle” that had been impounded as the result of a decades-long dispute between a local rancher and the U.S. government. But while the story has managed to capture the attention of thousands of Americans, it has also managed to confuse thousands more. Indeed, from questions regarding property rights to whether a Democratic senator was involved in the cattle roundup, many have been left wondering what it’s all about and searching for the facts.[snip] Does Sen. Harry Reid have a connection to the Bureau of...
