In addition to the screenings on Monday, November 23, the White House will honor nine individuals "for their artistry in advocating for the LGBT community," according to a White House press release. The event will also mark Transgender Remembrance Day, currently observed on November 20.

    The Obama administration is praising protesters who successfully forced University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe to announce his resignation. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest praised the group of protesters for rallying together and demanding change, pointing out that Obama’s first presidential campaign was embodied by the same spirit. “I think this also illustrates something that the president talked a lot about in the context of – in his campaign, that a few people speaking up and speaking out can have a profound impact on the communities where we live and work,” he said during the daily press briefing today....

    WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce a series of small initiatives on Monday intended to make it easier for former prisoners to find jobs and live in subsidized housing, part of his broader drive to remake the criminal justice system. In a trip to Newark, Mr. Obama will visit a residential drug-treatment center, Integrity House, to highlight efforts to ease the re-entry of offenders leaving prison. He will then convene a round-table discussion at the Newark campus of Rutgers University with Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and Mayor Ras J. Baraka of Newark. . . . . .Mr....

    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...

    This is excellent. Ted Cruz masterfully debates Sierra Club President, Aaron Mair, on Climate Change, asking him about the objective data that shows no significant warming trend in the last 18 years. 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:

    Ren, the former chairman of the Hua Yuan Property Company, has been compared to American businessman (and now Republican presidential candidate) Donald Trump. In China he's nicknamed "Cannon" for his outspokenness, which has earned him more than 33 million followers on the Chinese microblogging service Weibo. So when one of his recent posts criticized the youth wing of the ruling Communist Party, it started a huge debate about the past and future of the country's politics. "We've been deceived by these slogans for years," Ren wrote, responding to a patriotic message posted by the Communist Youth League on Monday which...

    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...

    Maybe its because he is still feeling his way as a late entrant into the GOP presidential campaign, but Ohio Gov. John Kasich did a fairly dramatic about-face over the weekend on the politically charged issue of climate change. Kasich, a devout Christian, declared during the two-hour debate sponsored by Fox News that climate change is a real problem requiring government and society to protect the creation that the Lord has given us. While the vast majority of Republicans on Capitol Hill and the campaign trail are highly skeptical of President Obamas campaign to curb industrial carbon emissions to prevent...

    The new American morning shadowed with trepidation; what new crisis will emerge wholly created by this administration that pits one group of Americans against each other? New morals, values, laws and rights are established at the benefit of a few to the detriment of the majority. All the while this is happening we meaninglessly drift away from the norms established in the past as our own history fades away from popular discourse. In the blink of an eye, or in a generation, society itself unravels as it seems today to have lost the ability to retain the qualities that once...

The climate change movement has long dictated what the masses could eat and wear, what they could drive and where they would live. They are now dictating to the masses what religion to practice, and their green religion is not Christianity.

    Obama has built a legacy, all right: appeasement, staggering debt, racial animosity . . . President Obama last week spiked the ball on the Supreme Courts decisions to legalize gay marriage and to ratify the Affordable Care Act. 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...

    On May 10, the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera published an interview with Archbishop Victor Fernndez who is a close collaborator of Pope Francis. 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...

Romania is a small central European nation that borders Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, and Moldova. They speak Romanian, a language that has a historic connection to the romance languages like Spanish, Italian, French, and Portuguese.

    Stepping up his war on global warming and bolstering the Environmental Protection Agency's plan to put new restrictions on coal-fired energy plants, President Obama Wednesday issued a new report warning that the phenomenon can cause allergies, asthma and foster terrorism. 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...

That he had no record of achievement was seen as an advantageous clean slate.

Next, the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance oration, Barrys stock was skyrocketing.Soon, however,...

    WASHINGTON An Obama administration program secretly dispatched young Latin Americans to Cuba using the cover of health and civic programs to provoke political change, a clandestine operation that put those foreigners in danger even after a U.S. contractor was hauled away to a Cuban jail. Beginning as early as October 2009, a project overseen by the U.S. Agency for International Development sent Venezuelan, Costa Rican and Peruvian young people to Cuba in hopes of ginning up rebellion. The travelers worked undercover, often posing as tourists, and traveled around the island scouting for people they could turn into political activists....

    According to proposals on the table at the Texas Department of Transportation, the highway system around Downtown Houston may be subject to a significant transformation. This well may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the city to reconnect neighborhoods long bifurcated by highway IH-45 while also improving traffic capacity of the highways. How to change and improve the highway system is of great debate. As the Department of Transportation follows through on its federally required processes to propose and examine alternatives to the expansion of IH-45, also called the North Houston Highway Improvement Project, it’s winnowing the options quickly. Now is...

Everybody says because we tried in 08 and it didnt happen, its not possible, Biden said.

    We found that the term "global warming" is associated with greater public understanding, emotional engagement, and support for personal and national action than the term "climate change." For example, the term global warming is associated with:......[ blahh, blahh, blahh... ]Our findings strongly suggest that the terms global warming and climate change are used differently and mean different things in the minds of many Americans.... Americans are four times more likely to say they hear the term global warming in public discourse than climate change. Likewise, Americans are twice as likely to say they personally use the term global warming than...

    A new poll surveying young Americans' political attitudes released by Harvard University's Institute of Politics Tuesday found millennials have less trust in government than ever before. Harvard's poll showed millennials, which the pollsters defined as peopled aged 18 to 29, have lost trust in a variety of different major public institutions including the President, the military, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the federal government as a whole. Of all the institutions tracked by the poll, the President and the military lost the most trust among young Americans with a seven point drop. Overall, the pollsters said the level of trust...

    LONDON Setting up an intriguing election battle, Britains opposition Labor Party announced Friday that it had hired President Obamas chief campaign advisor to help the party return to power next year over the ruling Conservatives. The decision to recruit David Axelrod means that the 2015 British election will pit two of Obamas strategists against each other. Working for the Conservatives is Jim Messina, who, like Axelrod, toiled on both of Obamas presidential campaigns and who served as his deputy White House chief of staff during his first term. David is used to tough fights, and he is going to...
