    Since†Hillary Clinton's 2016 loss at the hands of President Trump, the Democrat Party has been struggling to find its new leader. Even over the course of the†campaign season, clashes between Clinton supporters and those of one-time rival candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) exposed a very real fracture among Democrats ó†one that party leaders are still struggling to mend. On Thursday, during an interview with ďMorning JoeĒ cohost Mika Brzezinski, longtime Obama senior adviser†Valerie Jarrett made it clear that there are at least two more popular Democrats whose names can be removed from that list of America's next potential president.After a...

    Tonight's Republican debate opened with Megyn Kelly asking about Donald Trump's absence. After thanking Iowans for their hospitality, Sen. Cruz proceeded to call his competitors "stupid, fat, and ugly." Then, turning to Dr. Carson, Cruz said, "And Ben, you're a terrible surgeon."

    Sen. Ted Cruz said he'd leave an empty seat for the millions of unborn children killed by abortion in a dig at President Obama after he announced plans to leave a seat vacant during Tuesday's State of the Union address to honor victims of gun violence. "If I'm elected POTUS, there'll be an empty seat for the over 50 million unborn children killed since Roe #Stand4Life," the Republican presidential candidate tweeted Friday.

    President Obama told supporters Friday that he'll leave one seat empty in the first lady's State of the Union guest box next week to represent victims of gun violence. In a conference call with about 20,000 activists, the president said the gesture during his annual address to Congress Tuesday night will "remind every single one of our representatives that it's their responsibility to do something." "We're going to leave one seat empty in the first lady's State of the Union guest box for victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice," Mr. Obama said. "We want them to...

  • Americans Prefer 'American Sniper' Over Obama's Empty Chair

    Valor: When Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood talked to an empty chair at the 2012 GOP convention, many thought he'd lost it. Now more Americans are watching his story of hero Chris Kyle than saw the State of the Union. There was a sense of irony in President Obama praising himself for a "persistent, steady resolve" in fighting an Islamic terrorism he refuses to call by name. He delivered his State of the Union speech just as the U.S. military was moving the assault ships Iwo Jima and Fort McHenry into the Red Sea to evacuate American personnel, if necessary, from...

    Everyone from Jon Stewart to Ted Cruz has mocked President Obama for not flying to France last weekend. And rightly so. It should have been a no-brainer for any American president to want to be seen by the whole world leading a massive unity march against terrorism in response to what is being called France's 9/11. Obama had a great chance to show America's solidarity with the latest victims of Islamist extremism and stand up for a fundamental Western value like free speech. But he blew it. Many of Obama's most faithful allies are still shocked by his clumsy blunder...

    A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obamaís PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAIís alarming findings come on the heels of Obamaís 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic Stateís (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at...

    President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November's midterm elections. Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don't believe in government to begin with, Obama said. "It doesn't have to be that way," Obama said during a barbecue in Purchase, New York. "There...

    ďWhat, me worry?Ē seems to be the operating philosophy of President Obama as a serious crisis brews in Eastern Europe. Daniel Halper reports an almost unbelievable level of Obama nonchalance toward his national security responsibilities in the Weekly Standard: A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama's team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend. "The President's national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon," reads the full...

    The Syrian crisis over the past few weeks has thrust President Obama into a role in which at times he has seemed uneasy: that of commander in chief. The prospect of an attack to punish Syriaís alleged use of chemical weapons exposed the Nobel Peace laureateís strained and somewhat tentative relationship with the military. His dramatic oscillation from detachment on Syria to the brink of military action, with him ultimately settling for a potential diplomatic solution, has unsettled many people in uniform.

    The Empty Chair II: Imagining an Eastwood-Obama sequel by Daniel Clark The following is a fictitious revisiting of Clint Eastwoodís famous ďempty chairĒ monologue, in which he poses questions to President Obama in absentia. Any similarity between the empty chair and the real President Obama is purely unavoidable. CLINT: You know, Mr. President, the last time we had one of these little talks was when I was endorsing Mitt Romney at last yearís convention. The next day I was criticized by lots of people in both your party and his, who called me everything from disrespectful to senile, to just...

    Barack Obama is more than the greatest President in the history of the United States; he is the greatest man in the history of the world. After millenia of darkness, he did what Jesus Christ could not: He showed us what it means to be created in the image of God. Enough April Foolís Day nonsense. Obama is a joke, and we are its sorry butt. The joke isnít funny. While millions of Americans celebrated Easter and Passover, Obama took time out of his ďbusyĒ day to celebrate Barack Obama. Chris Matthews called Obama ďthe perfect man,Ē but at some...
