    Here are a few that I believe all Americans want. Limit Congress from serving more than two terms. That is all that presidents are allowed. Stop Congress from voting for their own raises. How did that ever get started? Stop paying for lawmakers' high-priced insurance premiums. After all, they are only part-time employees. They might pass some law changes on the insurance companies, if they had to find one. Stop paying lawmakers their full salary after serving just one term, or at retirement. We need to get rid of that pension plan; they've let other companies get rid of theirs....

    At a recent Climate One conference, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, made clear that a leading solution to global warming includes extreme depopulation. Speaking to the organization’s founder Greg Dalton, Figueres had a carefully worded yet startling answer to his question on world population. Dalton: A related issue is fertility rates and population, a lot of people in energy and environmental circles don't want to go near that because its politically charged, it's not their issue, but isn't it true that stopping the rise in population could be one of the...

    The left is going absolutely nuts in their efforts to maintain the "Climate Change/Global Warming" scam. As more and more real evidence slips out from the national media-guarded cracks, the house of cards that is "climate change" is continuing to fall. The latest evidence of the radical environmentalists' flight from reality comes from California. The Daily Signal has the absurd new developments: California Attorney General Kamala Harris has joined New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in trying to prosecute ExxonMobil for supposedly lying to its shareholders and the public about climate change, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The new 60-second television spot reaches it's crescendo as Simon & Garfunkel sing "they've all come to look for America" while an expanding grid of people who've all come to see Sanders flashes on the screen.

    All military branches required to 'address the impacts of climate change' A new directive issued by Pentagon leaders mandates that the agency work to "assess and manage risks associated with the impacts of climate change," according to a copy of the Jan. 14 directive issued by Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work. As the Obama administration focuses on a larger effort to push its climate change agenda, the Pentagon will now "address the impacts of climate change." This includes engaging in "deliberate preparation, close cooperation, and coordinated planning" to "improve climate preparedness and resilience," according to the directive. The partnership...

Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday afternoon resumed his call for a federal "Department of Peace," which he said is needed to counteract a "cultural matrix" in the United States that produces violence.

"Yet war abroad and violence at home are not inevitable. We have it within our power to recreate America today." "Let...

For his seventh address, Obama plans to skips the traditional list of grand proposals, new policies and presidential appeals for new laws in favor of a broad overview of what he has accomplished since 2009 and what is undone in his final year in office.

    Manufacturing activity in the U.S. contracted at the fastest pace since July 2009 in December, dampening optimism over the strength of the economy and adding to uncertainty as to how fast the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next year, industry data showed on Monday. In a report, the Institute for Supply Management said its index of purchasing managers fell to 48.2 last month from a reading of 48.6 in November. Analysts had expected the manufacturing PMI to inch up to 49.0 in December. The New Orders Index registered 49.2, an increase of 0.3 points from the reading of 48.9...

One can only imagine how Marines at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay, subjected to working out at their gym with President Barack Hussein Obama must feel when reading the general email he sent under the cover of “-Friend”, just one day later. In Obama’s own defiant words: “I’ve got 12 months left to squeeze every ounce of change I can while I’m still in office. And that’s what I intend to do.”

    Periods of high extinction on Earth, rather than evolutionary adaptations, may have been a key driver in the diversification of amniotes (today's dominant land vertebrates, including reptiles, birds, and mammals), according to new research published in Scientific Reports. The new study reveals that mass extinctions among some groups of amniotes coincide with numerous and large diversifications in other closely related groups. Conducted by scientists from the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, Germany, and the University of Lincoln, UK, the research challenges commonly held views that support a relationship between the evolution of "key innovations" in a group and the rapid...

    Day by day, the dystopian universe depicted in George Orwells magnum opus rings more like an omen than a work of fiction. In the day and age of political correctness run amok, where offenders are often forced to attend sensitivity-training, a new experiment that claims to alter the way participants view religion and immigrants, proves that the thought-police may, in fact, be coming. In a joint study conducted by scientific researches in the U.S. and U.K., a technique dubbed transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, was used on participants to essentially turn off groups of neurons in the brain that control...

But Mair only wanted to focus on a study that he agrees with, that says 97 percent of scientists say the earth is cooking or something and claims the science is settled and no longer up for debate. It was pathetic. Cruz took him apart, exposing the fact that he doesnt know what the heck hes talking about, and then schooled a Democrat who objected. Watch:

    In this presidential cycle, voters in both parties, to the surprise of the punditocracy, are rejecting experienced political leaders. They're willfully suspending disbelief in challengers who would have been considered laughable in earlier years. Polls show more Republicans preferring three candidates who have never held elective office over 14 candidates who have served a combined total of 150 years as governors or in Congress. Most Democrats are declining to favor a candidate who spent eight years in the White House and the Senate and four as secretary of state. Psephologists of varying stripes attribute this discontent to varying causes. Conservatives...

Yet it is difficult to see quite how Obama had much to do with these decisions or, to the degree he did, that they are earth-shattering. He twice ran for president expressing opposition to gay marriage while emphasizing the religious element of holy matrimony, which, he argued, precluded same-sex marriages. Is he delighted that the Court ignored his prior views? On...

He is said to have ghost-written Pope Francis first Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium and to be now involved in the drafting of the Popes encyclical on questions concerning the environment. He had previously worked together with then-Cardinal Bergoglio in Argentina, and headed Cardinal Bergoglios team redacting the touchstone Latin-American bishops (CELAM) document of Aparecida in 2007. His words are therefore to be taken very seriously, since, more than most people, he knows the Popes mind. This...

The report lists at least 34 effects of climate change, a doomsday scenario of health, security, economic and political issues. "Climate change is contributing to extreme weather, wildfires, and drought, and that rising temperatures can lead to more smog and more allergens in the air we breathe, meaning more kids are exposed to the triggers that can cause asthma attacks,"...

On April 28, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) cited fast-track trade legislation and a bill requiring congressional review of the administrations nuclear deal with Iran as the major accomplishments of the GOP-led 114th Congress so far. Earlier that month, Obama praised what he called some outbreaks of bipartisanship and common sense in Congress over Iran and trade. The president also said he was holding...

    President Barack Obama and his outgoing attorney general, Eric Holder, are, along with "progressives" in government, forcing "a new morality" on the American people, a "morality that does not include God" and which is "an Anti-Christ movement," said Reverend Franklin Graham. "There is an anti-Christian bias that is now in our government, has permeated our government, thats also permeated Washington but [also] at the state and local level," said Rev. Graham during a Mar. 11 interview on Washington Watch With Tony Perkins. "Its the progressives, whatever you want to call them, that are trying -- and the president is into...

    Suspected dissidents disappear after midnight visits to their homes; chilling screams can again be heard from Idi Amin's infamous torture chambers, reopened after a quarter of a century of disuse. From the few that escape come tales of punishment beatings and even mass executions. Welcome to President Yoweri Museveni's Uganda. One of Britain's favourite African states in recent years has, almost unnoticed in the West, become a sinister land where a corrupt regime uses its secret police to rule through fear. The reasons for this transition are not hard to fathom. Mr Museveni has ruled Uganda since 1986, when his...

    Let us all seek to embrace, teach and reignite the true miracle of America If one man stands clearly apart from the entire western world, alone in his unwillingness to utter the simple phrase radical Islamic extremism, why on earth should Americans expect this same man to utter the simple phrase personal responsibility when facing racial issues; those not exclusively in our black communities, but within all American communities? Should we hope this one man who holds such vast political power, in part by fueling racial discord through his measured silence, incendiary comments, nefarious associations and all too frequent use...

    A perfect storm brought into power Barack Obama, a previously little-known Illinois community organizer. He had at best a mediocre record as a state legislator and rookie senator. Yet he quickly dazzled the liberal establishment. Joe Biden and Harry Reid were wowed by his sounding and behaving like a white liberal, while retaining the ability to turn on his supposedly authentic black persona when needed. That he had no record of achievement was seen as an advantageous clean slate. Teleprompted glibness was preferred to ad hoc repartee, as if an entire presidency could be scripted and Photoshopped with backdrops of...
  • Are you a "believer" a "denier" ... or an "agnostic"?

    Are you a "believer" a "denier" ... or an "agnostic"? When you put together a large group of people who are all certain that they can predict what will happen 100 years from now, a group that demonizes those who stray even a little from their beliefs, a group claiming that if everyone follows them, we will be saved, but if they don't we will be doomed - then in most cases, that group is called a religion. Like most religions, this group also elevates the importance of mankind, so much so that humans are viewed as having more power...

    Splattergate II: Green Graphic Novel Celebrates Eco-Terrorism Shopping Mall Killing Spree When is it acceptable for a terrorist to go berserk in a shopping mall and machine gun innocent victims to death? When it's all being done for the noble cause of environmentalism, of course! Such is the take-home message of an award-winning graphic novel which has been praised by a top scientist at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as "a marvellous way to convey the knowledge accumulated by our scientific community." It has also been recommended by a curriculum developer at the US National Council of Teachers...

    Pope Francis on Sunday closed an assembly of Catholic bishops that revealed deep divisions on how to reach out to homosexuals and divorced people, saying the Church should not be afraid of change and new challenges. Francis, who has said he wants a more merciful and less rigid Church, made his comments in a sermon to some 70,000 people in St. Peter's Square for the ceremonial closing of a two-week assembly, known as a synod. "God is not afraid of new things. That is why he is continuously surprising us, opening our hearts and guiding us in unexpected ways," he...

    All that historic Transformation created by HOPE & CHANGE has certainly taken its toll. In fact, after an auspicious start, this legacy presidency is beginning to look more like a long, painful, death spiral.In the beginning though, it was awesome: the audacity of HOPE marked the moment the oceans began to recede and the earth begin to heal. From there our lofty rhetoric launched the first World Apology Tour; reaching out to Muslims and calling for an end to nuclear armaments while simultaneously apologizing for Americas dismissive derisiveness. Next, the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance oration, Barrys stock was skyrocketing.Soon, however,...
