  • Newt Gingrich Blasts Obama’s Speech: This Was a Gruber Speech; Simply Not Telling Country the Truth

    Following President Barack Obama’s speech announcing his executive order on illegal immigration, CNN political commentator and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich unloaded on the President, likening his speech to statements made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber and that those in the “elite” class “really underestimate” the disdain Americans have for unfortified borders. Responding on CNN in the minutes after it ended, Gingrich opined that it was wrong for the President to go against the incoming Congress as it had “repudiated his policies in the election” a few weeks ago. Gingrich then slammed what viewers just heard as “a...

    The Hill ^ | November 23, 2014 | Niall Stanage
    President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have been fiercely protective of their daughters’ privacy since winning the White House in 2008. The first daughters have spent their formative years in the public eye. Malia Obama was 10 when her father was first elected president and is now 16; Sasha was 7 and is now 13. But the president has also often invoked his daughter’s names — and their attitudes — when making political points. The most recent instance came during Thursday night’s primetime address on immigration. Here, in reverse chronological order, are seven examples. Immigration Reform — November 20,...

During an exchange on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, Maher was discussing President Obama’s recent amnesty action and began discussing America’s attitude towards immigrants in general. “When has America ever, ever been welcoming to immigrants?” Maher asked. “Certainly not the Irish. Need not apply.” Matthews, who was raised in an Irish Catholic family, chimed in, saying “probably the last time Heidi Klum visited,” referencing the German supermodel. “What, you mean because she’s hot?” asked Maher. “Yes!” exclaimed Matthews, adding...

"The leaders of the occupation, who are responsible for the killing of women and children and the desecration of holy places, are legitimate targets," he said, in remarks translated by Channel 10 news. On Thursday, the Israeli Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) revealed that three Hamas terrorists had been planning to assassinate Liberman during Operation...

"It cannot be that those who act in terror against the state of Israel enjoy rights such as national insurance," said Netanyahu. The bill, which would include in its scope those inciting terrorism against the state, would target not only the Arab terrorists but their families as well in stripping their residency and social benefits.

After announcing his executive amnesty at the White House on Thursday evening that will give temporary amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants, Obama went to Del Sol High School in Nevada and became the salesman-in-chief. Obama will reportedly try to "aggressively" sell his executive amnesty in the coming weeks across the country, including next Tuesday in Chicago...

    The first independent polling in the race for Louisiana's 6th Congressional District shows Republican Garret Graves has a hefty, if not unexpected, lead over Democrat and former Governor Edwin Edwards. The poll was conducted and funded by John Couvillon of JMC Analytics and Polling, who previously worked with the Paul Dietzel II campaign during the primary but is not aligned with either Graves or Edwards. It shows that, including people who are undecided, 61 percent of people are leaning toward voting for Graves, compared to 35 percent for Edwards. If the Dec. 6 election were held today, 59 percent of...

    Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) has opened up a 15-point lead over incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in their runoff race, according to a new poll from conservative-leaning Rasmussen. Cassidy takes 56 percent support in the poll to Landrieu’s 41. It’s the second poll released this week by a conservative outlet to show Cassidy with a double-digit lead. A Vox Populi poll released on Wednesday showed Cassidy with an 11-point lead. The Rasmussen survey shows that Landrieu’s efforts to pass a bill authorizing the Keystone pipeline may have done little to sway voters in the energy-rich state. While 70 percent of...

    It may be the timeliest -- and most troubling -- idea in climate science. Back in 2012, two researchers with a particular interest in the Arctic, Rutgers' Jennifer Francis and the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Stephen Vavrus, published a paper called "Evidence linking Arctic amplification to extreme weather in mid-latitudes." In it, they suggested that the fact that the Arctic is warming so rapidly is leading to an unexpected but profound effect on the weather where the vast majority of us live -- a change that, if their theory is correct, may have something to do with the extreme winter weather...

On Thursday’s show, the Judge told FOX News Radio’s Tom Sullivan why the President may have to resort to such extreme measures. He says, while Presidents do have right to practice prosecutorial discretion when it comes to immigration, Obama’s proposed actions risk nullifying the law altogether. And that’s going too far.

Designed to fill in the details after President Obama's announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation's immigration and border security officers as they administer the president's directive. The new priorities are striking. On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views...

At the National Press Club, NAACP President Cornell William Brooks said he applauded Obama for his executive amnesty, saying amnesty is not only about the "economic status of workers" but also about "compassion." He said it is "crucial to provide documentation" to all of the nation's illegal immigrants and declared that the NAACP stands with big-business interests and ethnic and social justice organizations in pushing for a more permanent comprehensive amnesty...

    resident Obama has committed a mind-boggling $3 billion to a new United Nations Green Climate Fund run by officials from Communist nations, a country that appears on the State Department’s list of terrorism-sponsors and an Arab oil-industry chief. As if it weren’t bad enough that our commander-in-chief is giving away money while the nation suffers through a colossal budget deficit, there are countless reasons why this is a lousy idea. First of all, the United Nations is a famously corrupt organization that is already largely funded by Uncle Sam to the tune of billions annually. The exact figure is tough...

    Appearing on MSNBC after President Obama’s speech announcing executive amnesty, Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez told host Rachel Maddow that Republican disbelieved Obama’s border claims because they wanted to use “xenophobia” and “bigotry” against Mexicans. MADDOW: The first thing the President announced tonight in his three part plan was yet further resources to the border, yet more resources in terms of stopping people from crossing in the first place, catching them when they do, and sending them back. [Republican operative Steve Schmidt] said no Republican in the country believes that is true. That’s obviously a fake assertion. What’s behind the refusal...

Ukraine accused President Vladimir Putin of treating its territory like a "playing field", trying to unleash a full-scale war that would pose a broader threat to NATO countries.

    We will have more to say about President Obama’s unconstitutional nullification of the nation’s immigration laws in the days to come; likely, before the night is over. But for now, let’s quote Senator Jeff Sessions, who has been the hero on this issue for a long time..... [snip] President Obama’s executive amnesty violates the laws Congress has passed in order to create and implement laws Congress has refused to pass. The President is providing an estimated 5 million illegal immigrants with social security numbers, photo IDs and work permits—allowing them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans during a...

    The next chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said President Barack Obama’s expected executive actions would go beyond the dreams of even King George III. As Democrats were gathering at the White House for a meeting with Obama ahead of the formal announcement of the immigration moves in a Thursday evening address to the nation, Sen. Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, was on the floor of the Senate speaking about a series of administration actions that Republicans have found objectionable, ranging from the use of recess appointments to the transfer of five Taliban prisoners out of the prison camp at Guantánamo...

    Ambassadors from five major European Union (EU) member states met with the Foreign Ministry's senior diplomat Alon Ushpiz in Jerusalem on Thursday, where they voiced opposition to the demolition of the homes of Arab terrorists. Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Spain were the five countries whose consul generals argued that such demolitions, which are meant as a deterrent for future terrorists and a punishment for heinous crimes, are "counterproductive." The ambassadors also denounced the attack on a Jerusalem synagogue this Tuesday in which four Jews and a Druze police officer were murdered by two Arab terrorists, reports Haaretz citing Israeli...

    Only 6.7 million Americans were enrolled in Obamacare health insurance plans as of mid-October, not 7.1 million, the Obama administration admitted Thursday. Health Secretary Sylvia Burwell acknowledged the error, calling it a mistake. The higher figure the White House reported earlier included people who enrolled in stand-alone dental plans. Previously the administration separated out enrollment in those dental plans.

    November 21, 2014 Immigration hawks eye Enzi's move to take budget committee gavel David M. Drucker Mike Enzi is threatening to take the Senate Budget Committee gavel from Jeff Sessions just as Republicans are readying to use their new majority and Congress’ spending authority to confront President Obama’s “executive amnesty.” Enzi and Sessions hold equally conservative voting records. But the Wyoming senator’s power play to supplant Sessions as the top Republican on the Budget Committee is rankling immigration hawks. They lionize the Alabama lawmaker for how he has used his committee perch to fight comprehensive immigration reform, and they expected...

  • Could Russia's New Nuclear Weapons Win World War III?

    Russia certainly thinks so. Their new round of nuclear weapons, their new aggressive posture and their new spurning of joint nuclear programs with the United States, all point to a disconcerting trend in Russian thinking. Americans have short memories. Russians don’t. It’s only been 25 years since the Wall came down, but in Russia’s mind the Cold War didn’t end. If Russia’s invasion of Ukraine isn’t enough of a heads-up, then maybe their new generation of tactical nuclear weapons is. That’s right – new tactical nuclear weapons - as in “yeah, we might use them since their only tactical.” No...

    In the brutal closing scene of the 2007 film “There Will Be Blood,” a bowling alley beating, set in motion by years of tension and personal torment, concludes with the final biting words, “I’m finished.” Sifting through the wreckage on the Senate floor last week, the same words could have come from Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu. Forty-one of her Democrat colleagues ruthlessly beat down her proposal to approve the Keystone pipeline, effectively sealing her fate in the December runoff election to keep her seat. Keeping a brave face, Landrieu insisted she held no one to blame and only felt “joy in...
