    Barack Obama studied radical leftist Saul Alinsky and taught his methods in school. Obama teaches Alinsky method in Chicago.Obama based his entire political and professional career on Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, a system used to divide, agitate, create disenchantment and fan the flames of hopelessness.Just two weeks ago Barack Obama accused FOX News of spreading malicious and mean stereotypes about the poor during a conference on poverty. Of course, not one reporter asked him about his own failed economic policies that have thrown millions of Americans into poverty.So it came ast quite a shock today when Obama told an...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., February 11, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – President Barack Obama is denying an account by a close adviser that he lied about his views on gay “marriage” to get elected president in 2008. In an interview yesterday, Obama said he didn't lie; it's just that he was misunderstood.However, Obama admitted he supported government-enforced recognition of homosexuality, and “it was frustrating to me” that he had to “square that with what were a whole bunch of religious sensitivities out there.”Obama's close campaign operative and senior adviser David Axelrod wrote that Obama always favored redefining marriage but lied about it in order...

You remember during the Republican -- it was a primary debate in January, two years ago, Mitt Romney, out of the blue, was asked by George Stephanopoulos, "So what do you think about contraception?" And Romney's going, "What? Contraception? George, what are you talking about?" Stephanopoulos kept pushing and kept pushing, and it wasn't an issue anywhere. So Romney finally answered it, and that gave birth to the War on Women. There was no War on Women, and now this vaccination thing has popped up. It's...

    According to the Chinese calendar, 2013 was the Year of the Snake. For Americans, however, the year just drawing to a close will be known as the Year of the Lie. Not since the Nixon Administration -- which ended with Richard Nixon resigning in order to avoid being impeached -- has the credibility of a President been held in such low esteem. Mired in more scandals than fingers and toes on which to count, it seems President Barack Obama and his defenders spent more time this year fibbing to the American people than actually running the executive branch.

    President Barack Obama made it no secret he was a proponent of a single payer health care system in America when he first came on to the national scene. However, he explained to his supporters over the years that a "potential transition" would be necessary to break away from the current system. Interestingly, as the implementation of the Obamacare exchanges face problems and millions begin to lose coverage from their private insurers, something President Obama promised would not happen, Democrats and their liberal allies are now beginning to suggest a single payer system as a solution to the rickety exchanges....

    When America was a racist country, Democrats were primarily the ones engaged in racism. However, now that racism has been largely relegated to the fringes of American society (the KKK, the New Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, La Raza, MEChA, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, American Nazi Party, etc.), the Democrats are constantly wagging their fingers about it. Of course naturally, given the racist history of the Democrat Party, liberals have managed to rig the rules in order to benefit themselves and hurt their political opponents. That's a pretty neat albeit despicable trick that they've managed to pull off. 1)...

    Several of President Obama’s political appointees are using secret government email accounts, The Associated Press reported Tuesday. The administration officials contend the separate addresses used by the former head of the Environmental Protection Agency and other departments are necessary to keep their primary inboxes from overflowing. But the practice invites concerns that federal agencies are conducting official business through accounts that go undetected in public records requests. It brings worries that government officials are hiding information and decisions. "What happens when that person doesn't work there anymore? He leaves and someone makes a request (to review emails) in two years,"...

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, America currently has fewer than 135 million working people. Reporting information that allegedly came from the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, Congresswoman Waters warned ominously of the catastrophic number of job losses that would hit America once the budget sequester becomes law.

As the Benghazi investigation gets more attention and focus, CBS is once again adding to the Benghazi timeline. In the interview, according to the latest portions, Obama would not say whether he thought the attack was terrorism. Yet he would later emphasize at a presidential debate that in the Rose Garden the same day, he had declared the attack an act of terror. That moment was one of the most intense exchanges...

What you may not know is that 10 days before Senator Obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the Stafford Act for New Orleans. And to add insult to injury, Barack Obama was one of 14 senators who actually voted against the bill that included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to New Orleans. In other words, he was being dishonest and divisive, which...

    As we predicted the Helen Thomas story has blown up over the weekend. Thomas did not show up for the White House briefing this morning, and word has it the WHCA is discussing the matter. It is a sad turn of affairs for a reporter who had, until now, such a long, illustrious, and pioneering career (our own Tommy Christopher notes “seats at #whbrief are assigned, but if someone doesn’t show, they’re fair game. Except Helen’s seat”). And it may get worse. Rabbi David Nesenoff, whose interview with Thomas at the White House Jewish Heritage Day resulted in her now...

    Updated Wed Jul 29, 2009, 10:13 AM MDT A cop's dashboard camera is supposed to catch criminals in the act. But for four Hollywood, Florida cops, the dash cam may have foiled their plans to frame a motorist. The four police officers -- three of them longtime veterans of the force -- were caught on one of the cop's dash cameras plotting to place the blame for a February traffic accident on a woman that one of them had hit with their patrol car. The disturbing video shows the woman, Alexandra Torres Villa, handcuffed in the back of the squad...

    A jumpy cat caused a distraction, report saysHOLLYWOOD - After a Hollywood police officer rear-ended a car in February and then arrested the driver on drunken driving charges, he and other officers talked about doctoring the report -- it said a jumpy cat created a distraction -- to cover up the crash. The exchange was recorded by a dashboard camera in one of the patrol cars. The officers apparently didn't realize it was on.

    At British Parliament today, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, met with Tory Leader David Cameron. Seemingly unaware of an enormous fuzzy boom mike held by ABC News' Eric Kerchner, the two chatted casually -- and privately. "You should be on the beach," Cameron told Obama. "You need a break. Well, you need to be able to keep your head together."

    Arnold's Immigration F-Bomb Tom Bevan Latinos are up in arms over the most recent round of audio tapes leaked out of Arnold Schwarzenegger's office. Here is some of what Governor Schwarzenegger said that caused such a huff: GOVERNOR: Do you go back then and chase them down? Do you then make them criminals for staying here? Do you put them in prison for staying here? Do we have the prison beds, and do we have the supervision? Do we have enough of the personnel in the prisons, in the county jails for this stuff, to feed them and to guard...

    SACRAMENTO In his inaugural address a month ago, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger urged Californians to think beyond party ideology and forge a "dynamic center" that was not captive to Republican or Democratic orthodoxy. Private audio tapes made public this week indicate the Republican governor was heeding his own advice long before giving the speech that kicked off his final term. Sounding almost like a man without a party, Schwarzenegger skewers the Democratic leaders of the Legislature saying one lacks passion and calling another "really weird" as well as Republican legislators in general. He says GOP lawmakers are small-minded, obstructionist and prone...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's off-the-cuff comments in recently released audio recordings about illegal immigration and the unwillingness of Mexicans to assimilate into American society have drawn angry responses this week from Latino community and political leaders. "I made an effort," the Austrian-born Schwarzenegger told aides last April in conversations that touched on assimilation. "But the Mexicans don't make that effort." The governor also used an expletive to disparage the 1986 federal law that granted asylum to more than 2 million illegal immigrants. "His comments were highly offensive and outrageous," said Assembly Assistant Majority Leader Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles). "It's just...

    SACRAMENTO Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Democratic Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez appeared to forge an especially effective political bond over the past year, working together on landmark efforts to rebuild California's infrastructure and tackle global warming. Privately, however, the Republican governor believed Nunez was at times a passionless and thin-skinned political operator who would tell Schwarzenegger one thing behind closed doors and say something else in public, according to audio recordings released late Sunday. "Fabian is so much a what do you call it? A political operator, coming from the union background," Schwarzenegger said during a conversation about negotiations over infrastructure...
