    With just weeks before the new Rutherford B. Gaston Middle School opens in southwest Fresno, community and church leaders are calling on Fresno Unified School District to reconsider its hiring of a white teacher to instruct African-American, Latino and Southeast Asian studies there. At an early morning news conference Monday, a small group of concerned citizens led by Rev. Karen Crozier met in front of the school on Church Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. People at the gathering said the new school, which is the first southwest Fresno middle school in decades, needs teachers who reflect the ethnic...

    This week, as I have been predicting for months, President Barack Obama announced that he would be considering unprecedented executive action to provide legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. His goal is not to solve the immigration crisis -- you don't grant legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants, then leave the back door wide open if you're interested in solving the problem. His goal is not to help illegal immigrants -- he instead leaves them in limbo by granting them temporary work permits, rather than blanket amnesty. His goal is trolling. Trolling is a practice whereby a person...

"If you need to dispose of anything you shouldn't have, we suggest you flush it now," he added.

    First lady Michelle Obama is the most popular member of the Obama administration, and Democrats say she’s the one they want to see more of in the midterms. She’s a woman and an African-American, with a direct appeal to two groups that the Democrats need to turn out in major numbers in November. She can bring the Obama brand without the baggage of President Barack Obama himself. She can go to states where he can’t. She’s a fresh draw for donors and voters. So where is she? Democrats want an answer — they desperately need the help, and especially the...

Devine is a 32-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, along with being president of The Arkin Group, an international risk consulting and intelligence firm.

Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand.

The administration claims they had to make an emergency decision because of concerns about Bergdahl’s health. Bergdahl has completed his reintegration process and is now back on active duty in Texas while the Pentagon investigates the circumstances surrounding his capture. The...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Even though L.A. City Councilman Richard Alarcon was convicted of four felonies this week, he’ll continue to receive his $116,000 annual pension, a newspaper reported Friday. There are some California jurisdictions that prohibit city employees convicted of felonies from receiving pensions. That’s not the case in Los Angeles, a worker in the city’s civilian retirement division told Los Angeles Daily News. Alarcon, 60, was convicted Wednesday of four counts of perjury and voter fraud for living outside Council District 7 and lying about his address on official documents. The councilman’s wife, Flora, was convicted of three...

As President Obama likes to say, "That's not who we are." 'Our starting point must always be a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel," Obama wrote in a much-celebrated 2007 Foreign Affairs magazine article. "That commitment is all the more important as we contend with growing threats in the region — a strengthened Iran, a chaotic Iraq, the resurgence of al-Qaida, the reinvigoration of Hamas and Hezbollah." Seven years later, Iran is...

What I proposed was to do what Democrats did forty years ago this month to Nixon. The case filed against Nixon in United States District Court was decided on May 31, 1974, and the case was argued before the Supreme Court on July 8, 1974. The unanimous decision (Justice Rehnquist recused himself) was decided barely...

Even so, most Americans would probably agree that at a minimum our diplomatic efforts should not cause unnecessary harm. Which brings me to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent misadventure in the Middle East. It seems like a rather big deal that Egypt, Israel, Fatah, Jordan, Saudi Arabia—ostensibly, all allies of ours—agree on anything. This development, one imagines, might be something the United States would be interested in fostering rather than destroying. Certainly, the idea that Hamas’ power should...

The answer will likely determine whether they can stay.

Another study, by the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security, acknowledged that many “are probably seeking economic opportunities in...

    Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) denounced the House Republican border bill as a “surrender to a lawless president” because the legislation does not include any language to prevent President Obama from expanding his unilateral legalization of illegal immigrants. Here’s the statement: The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants. This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with...

The documents were included as part of a report by Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Republicans allege that White House adviser...

After previously pulling shot glasses designed as prescription medication bottles from its shelves after an uproar, the teen-focused store has actually teamed up with a hair salon with the name Hairroin in its latest New York City location. The so-called cutting edge salon glamorizes...

    Massachusetts Republicans have amped up their criticism of Gov. Deval Patrick’s approach to potentially sheltering immigrant children in federal custody within Massachusetts, while the administration is seeking to quell the concerns of local officials. ... Federal facilities for detained children who crossed the border illegally and unaccompanied by a guardian have been overwhelmed, and Patrick has offered Joint Base Cape Cod in Bourne and Westover Air Reserve Base as potential sites to house the children. The federal government has not yet responded. Patrick sent a representative - Homeland Security Undersecretary Kurt Schwartz - to a select board meeting in Bourne...

    Big picture.We got a lot of attention last week with a piece about Texas Gov. Rick Perry's revelation that, at a recent meeting, President Obama had threatened the nation's governors that "you'll hear from me" if they criticized him about federal spending.The whole conversation was in the context of National Guard use, but that was sort of beside the point. Obama doesn't like getting called out by anyone for the way he deploys federal resources and power, and he wanted to make it clear to the governors that they had better stay in line and not do anything that would...

    A top Israeli official wants President Barack Obama to stop meddling with the Jewish state during its conflict with Hamas in Gaza. Speaking to Israel’s Army Radio, Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel criticized Obama telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that there should be an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. “Leave us alone,” Ariel told Army Radio, directing his words at Obama. “Go focus on Syria.” Obama spoke with Netanyahu Sunday about the rising number of Palestinian deaths in Gaza and the worsening humanitarian crisis. “Building on Secretary Kerry’s efforts, the President made clear the strategic imperative of instituting an...

    The Internal Revenue Service has reached a lawsuit settlement agreement with the Freedom From Religion Foundation, agreeing to investigate churches that violate a federal law that activist groups often cite in an attempt to silence them by threatening their tax-exempt status. "This is a victory, and we're pleased with this development in which the IRS has proved to our satisfaction that it now has in place a protocol to enforce its own anti-electioneering provisions," FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a statement last week, following which the Alliance Defending Freedom asked the IRS to release all documents related to...
  • 10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

    1. It Is Not Marriage Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and wellbeing of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex “marriage” propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage. It also denies the specific primary purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and...
  • Illegal Immigrants Protest Outside White House, Not Fearing Deportation

    On Monday, illegal immigrants openly protested in front of the White House--and demanded more grants of temporary amnesty--without any consequences or fear of being deported. According to a Fox News report, "Illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about" deportation because Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) merely "focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and--in some cases--those caught in the act of crossing the border." ICE reportedly "prioritizes deportation for felons, repeat offenders, gang members and others with a serious criminal record" and "largely gives a pass" to other illegal immigrants. “Unless the individuals meet...

    Greetings in Freedom, Ordinarily a County Sheriff's election wouldn't be notable for the larger state. In this case however, I'd like to share what is going on in Milwaukee County because the Sheriff's race here has drastic implications for the entire state and country. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke rocked the boat here in SE Wisconsin and nationally when he issued public service announcements in 2013 that encouraged people to take responsibility for their own safety including training to use a firearm in self defense. His public service announcements went viral because while self-defense is only common sense, its extremely...
