    Obama decided to commemorate Memorial Day (after denouncing the US military from Vietnam to Japan) by calling for "good healthcare" for veterans. President Obama called for veterans to receive better healthcare and good-paying jobs during a Memorial Day speech at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. “We have to be there not only when we need them, but when they need us,” Obama told the crowd of survivors who have lost loved ones in battle.

    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is calling for the resignation of Dr. Kent Paredes Scribner, Superintendent of the Fort Worth Independent School District. Patrick says Scribner placed his own personal agenda ahead of students by adopting transgender student guidelines. In a statement released on Monday afternoon, Patrick said: “After less than a year as superintendent, Dr. Scribner has lost his focus and thereby his ability to lead the Fort Worth ISD. He has placed his own personal political agenda ahead of the more than 86,000 students attending 146 schools in the district by unilaterally adopting ‘Transgender Student Guidelines.’ Without any...

    Don't expect Oscar De La Hoya to be supporting Donald Trump's presidential campaign any time soon. The former boxing champion is making some serious claims and taking a shot at Trump's golfing integrity, saying he cheated on his own golf course. "It shows something about his character," De La Hoya told The Associated Press. "Golf is a gentleman's sport. You don't lie about your score, you don't lie about moving your ball. It goes to show what we're dealing with."

    Creeping Sharia ^ | April 23, 2016
    For all the talk about the security risks of Muslim “refugees” coming from Syria, little is said about another refugee program that has been delivering thousands of Muslims annually to U.S. cities for 33 years. That country is Somalia, which, just like Syria, is a hotbed of Sunni jihad terrorism and warring factions of Shariah-compliant tribal clans. Every president since Ronald Reagan has his fingerprints on the Somali refugee program, but it really found its footing under President Clinton and hasn’t slowed down since. President Obama has, during his more than seven years in office, approved the resettlement of 47,500...

    An Italian bishop has clashed with a pair of priests who want to invite Muslims to pray inside their churches in a bid to promote tolerance in a diocese in Tuscany. “The deserved, necessary and respectful welcome of people who practice other faiths and religions does not mean offering them space for prayers inside churches designed for liturgy and the gathering of Christian communities,” Bishop Fausto Tardelli of Pistoia said in a statement reported on Saturday (March 19). “They can very well find other spaces and places,” Tardelli said. The bishop was responding to pledges by two local priests, the...

    Exactly 100 days after Ayad Mohammed left his native Iraq to begin a better life in Germany, he packs his backpack in a refugee hostel in a forested area of the Swabian Jura mountains in southern Germany and begins his journey back home. His hostel is on a hill, surrounded by spruce and beech trees. The air smells like moss, and if you're quiet you can hear the goldfinches warbling. The only thing Mohammed is thinking about is that he wants to get out of there. Three days later, he sits in a travel agency in a shopping arcade in...

It took the Trump-dominated Super Tuesday contests to awaken Republican leaders to the fact that the darkest elements of the party's base, which many of them have embraced or exploited, are now threatening their party.... At one point, Mr. Romney said: "Mr. Trump is directing our anger for less than noble purposes. He creates scapegoats of Muslims and Mexican immigrants"--with absolutely no sense of self-awareness.

    WASHINGTON – Some on Capitol Hill believe that House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is going to attempt to remain in his position through mid-December. The election to replace outgoing Boehner was unexpectedly and indefinitely postponed Thursday after front-runner and current Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) pulled out of the race. Boehner has said that he plans to stay on as Speaker until a new Speaker is elected. That is a reversal from his previous decision to resign from Congress and the Speakership on Oct. 30. If Boehner tries to stay in office past Oct. 30, his previously scheduled...

    To officially retire, he'll need his House GOP colleagues to produce something they're not known for -- a quick and orderly decision. As Scott Wong of The Hill reported Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner experienced a fitful night's sleep last week, during which time the Ohio Republican had a nightmare about a "hand" that "came reaching, pulling," and, ultimately preventing his dream-self from making a needed escape. "I was trying to get out and I couldn't get out," Boehner related. A bad dream, eh? Ah, well, probably just one of those examples of sleep knitting up our raveled sleeve of...

    With less than four weeks left in his decades-long congressional career, Boehner is maneuvering to shape the House Republican Conference on his way out. His goal is to leave the conference he helped build —with countless hours of grunt work and hundreds of millions of dollars in fundraising — in the strongest position possible. He has all but officially endorsed Rep. Kevin McCarthy to succeed him, giving the majority leader enough of a nod to express confidence but short of the full-throated endorsement that could sink him. Boehner tried to lure a candidate into the majority leader race against one...

    “ALHAMDULILAH, by the greatest blessings of God, we are overjoyed to announce the birth of our beloved new baby son, Aidan.” I sincerely celebrated the good news, deferred to social media etiquette and clicked “like” on my friend’s post. Another new Muslim baby Aidan had entered the world. He joins lots of little Aidans, Rayans and Adams, Sarahs, Laylas and Sophias smiling and drooling their way through my Facebook feed. Not popping up as much? Bouncing baby Muhammads. The logic goes that “Rayan” can blend in as a moderate “Ryan,” “Aidan” is cool, mysterious and thus inherently likable; and “Adam,”...

    There are a lot of people wondering what the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, will do in his last days in office. I am sure he is under a lot of pressure from all sides. The question is: Which faction will he side with? Representative Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) is very hopeful that the speaker will side with the Democrats and push through all the stuff they really, really want. So let’s take note of what the Democrats are hoping for and we can judge Boehner’s legacy based on how compliant he is with their wishes: Hoyer, for his...

    Sophie Cruz's encounter with the pope during a parade in Washington this week looked to be one of those spontaneous, once-in-a-lifetime-moments Francis has become known for. But for 5-year-old Sophie, the chance to wrap her arm around the pope's neck as he offered a hug, kiss and a blessing unfolded as perfectly as it was scripted by members of a coalition of Los Angeles-based immigration rights groups. For nearly a year the group had been preparing the young girl from suburban Los Angeles to make a dash for the popemobile to deliver a message about the plight of immigrant parents...

    The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has published another blockbuster report on immigration numbers, and their analysis foreshadows a troubling trend of growing illegal immigration. Using the most up-to-date census data, they have uncovered a trend that has been lost from some of the traditional immigration-related data published by the Department of Homeland Security, which tends to lag behind the most recent trends. To begin with, this report reaffirms the known reality of record high levels of immigration across the board and from Latin America, and the trend is only growing. Among the highlights of the report are the following:...

Nonfarm payrolls fell by 131,000 last month as the rise in private-sector employment was not enough to make up for the government jobs lost, the U.S. Labor Department said Friday.

    (CNSNews.com) - Nearly 70 percent of Mexicans surveyed said that Mexican-Americans – including those born in the United States – owe their primary loyalty to Mexico, not the U.S., according to a Zogby poll commissioned by the Center for Immigration Studies. “In Mexico, Mexicans overwhelmingly – especially those who have family here (in the U.S. )– overwhelmingly say that it (amnesty) would encourage illegal immigration in the future.”

    Elvira Arellano met with Felipe Calderon in his salon. These household names from Michoacán, Mexico followed starkly different paths to celebrity: the latter, a Harvard graduate, had just taken the Mexican presidency with only a .58-percent margin of victory and amidst fervent dissent; the former, a cleaning lady, had just been deported from the United States after taking sanctuary to evade immigration laws. Elvira came to Felipe seeking a diplomatic visa to return to the U.S. legally.

    1. Final preparations have been made for the American Hiroshima, a major attack on the U. S. 2. Muslims living in the United States should leave the country without further warning. 3. The attack will be commandeered by Adnan el Shukrijumah (“Jaffer Tayyer” or “Jafer the Pilot”), a naturalized American citizen, who was raised in Brooklyn and educated in southern Florida. 4. The al Qaeda operatives who will launch this attack are awaiting final orders. They remain in place in cities throughout the country. Many are masquerading as Christians and have adopted Christian names.
