  • Obama: ‘We’ are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre

    Obama: ‘We’ are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre Omar Mateen called the cops to pledge his fealty to ISIS as he was carrying out his mass murderer in Orlando early Sunday morning. Twelve hours later, the president of the United States declared that “we have no definitive assessment on the motivation” of Omar Mateen but that “we know he was a person filled with hate.”So I guess the president thinks Mateen didn’t mean it?Here again, and horribly, we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the...
  • Report: U.S. Under Obama Has Halted Battle Against Charities Funding Terrorism

    The United States under the Obama administration has halted the practice of blacklisting domestic organizations that pose as charities to raise money for terrorist groups. The tool was central to former president George W. Bush’s counterterrorism strategy, but Bloomberg reported Thursday that federal officials haven’t listed an American charity as a facade for terrorist fundraising since the first month of President Obama’s presidency. Osama bin Laden was still a fugitive Feb. 11, 2009, when the Treasury Department blacklisted the Maryland-based Tamil Foundation for allegedly raising funds for Sri Lankan terrorist group the Tamil Tigers. Bloomberg reported: An examination of the...

    **SNIP** Based on the Attorney General’s remarks, it’s hard to believe that what was once a Constitutional right to individual thought and belief, may now be one step closer to an Iranian-style regulation overseen by a hierarchy of American mullahs. Then again, the president has already admonished those who contradict his beliefs concerning climate change by warning them if they don’t agree with him “[They]'ll be pretty lonely.” What Obama didn’t expound upon was whether or not a climate change skeptic ends up lonely inside or outside a courtroom. Either way, the problem that remains for America is that our...

    You think your holiday plane ticket was expensive? As the Obama family heads off on their annual Christmas vacation to Hawaii, conservative critics are taking aim, due to the financial burden that flying Air Force One puts on American taxpayers. The cost of operating the presidential plane is close to $200,000 per hour. Multiply that by the 18 hours that it takes to fly from Washington, D.C. to Honolulu and you’re talking about a $3.7 million bill for operating that flight alone.

Your chronic diffidence, dismissal and downplaying terrorism -- especially from radical jihadi extremists, in both word and deed -- is scaring the hell out of your countrymen. Get over it! It's not cool. Nor is it presidentially-composed to disregard the palpable fear that permeates America today. Even if we're all so ignorant, naive and unworldly as to elect you twice.

    In 2005, Torrance, Calif., police officers searched the apartment of two men suspected of robbing a gas station. There, the officers found a lengthy manifesto and a list of potential targets, including synagogues and military sites. They had stumbled on an Islamist terrorist cell in the advanced stages of an attack plan. The San Bernardino massacre, which killed 14 people, has focused new attention on "lone wolf" terrorists who plan attacks away from traditional high-profile targets without directly coordinating with others. While the FBI typically takes the lead in major terrorism investigations, local police officers and sheriff's deputies are the...

The Obama administration is sending a group of fighter planes to Turkey equipped with air-to-air missiles, raising concerns that the jets are really intended to battle Russian planes. The Pentagon plans to ship up to a dozen Boeing F-15C Eagle twin-engine planes to a base in Incirlik which the Turkish government has allowed the U.S. to use in its effort against the Islamic State. The base is near the country's border with Syria. But since the F-15C has...

That's because 60 votes are necessary to overcome a filibuster, and because the parliamentarian has indicated she believes repeal would have to come from a bill, which can be filibustered. Some Obamacare opponents have called for the law to repealed through so-called reconciliation, a special budgetary procedure that requires only a simple majority of senators to pass.

"Likewise, when a terror group beheads captives, slaughters innocents and enslaves women… it is an assault on all our humanity."

Now they make up the complex network of ISIS's leadership, helping to build the military strategies which have led the brutal jihadi group to their military gains in Syria and Iraq. The officers gave ISIS the organization and discipline it needed to weld together jihadi fighters drawn from across the globe, integrating terror tactics like suicide bombings with military operation

However if the sanctions are not removed there will be no deal from Iran's point of view. But that's not the big story. After Sen. Corker announced a compromise everyone knew the bill would pass with bipartisan support, although no one could have foreseen unanimity. The big news is that Obama folded....

    **SNIP** The IRS scandal that still leaves many stones unturned. While persons in the Obama administration have been investigating to a small degree, there is obvious a need to conduct more of an investigation into this concern. The assertions of lost emails by persons involved, such as Lois Lerner, is still unsettled. Just two days ago, Breitbart did a piece titled “IRS: Um, Yeah, We Never Actually Looked for Lois Lerner’s Emails or Anything.” Needless to say, the IRS scandal remains and has not settled well with Americans who want to know the truth. After all, targeting conservative groups prior...

    Thousands of Iranians chanted “Down with America” at a major anti-U.S. rally on Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, just days ahead of a key meeting between the two nations’ top diplomats over Iran’s controversial nuclear program. The gathering outside the former embassy compound in Tehran, which has become the annual venue for rallies commemorating the embassy attack and other American-bashing protests, was smaller compared to last year’s event, which drew tens of thousands – a sign of improved Iran-U.S. relations since moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took office last year. But...

    President Barack Obama will remain at the White House on both Monday and Tuesday as voters head to the polls to determine whether to oust his political party from power in the Senate.

Tomorrow Obama will sit down with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. The following day he'll take other meetings at the White House instead of barnstorming the country, campaigning for endangered Democrats. While the president will be out of...

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said that with just six days until the midterm elections, Democrats are standing on their own, apart from President Obama. "As someone who is on the ballot myself in six days from now, I can tell you that any candidate wants to be able to stand on their own," Schultz told MSNBC on Wednesday. "That's what our candidates are doing. They're focused on the issues that matter to their constituents," she said, adding "of course we have a common agenda that really unites us all," citing jobs and the economy. Democrats are...

    SOUTH OF KARBALA, Iraq — Four soldiers from the 2nd brigade of the 101st Airborne Division, with red sores on their faces and hands, were sent by ambulance to a rear MASH unit Tuesday. They were told they would be examined for possible contact with nerve or blistering agents. Once at the 30th medical brigade's mobile hospital at the 101st's headquarters south of Karbala, the soldiers were isolated from other troops and photographed. A doctor at the MASH, Maj. David Wolken, interviewed each soldier and measured his pulse and heart rate in a tent with a dirt floor. One soldier...
