    Tuesday at a press conference with French President Francois Hollande, President Barack Obama declared it “our humanitarian duty” to help out with refugees fleeing the Middle East. Obama said, “Americans will not be terrorized. I say all this because another part of being vigilant, another part of defeating terrorists like ISIL is upholding the rights and freedoms that define our two great republics. That includes freedom of religion.
  • Barack Obama says ISIS will be defeated by ideas, not guns (WTF!????)

    U.S. president meets with Pentagon officials following weekend airstrikes in eastern Syria The complex threat of the ISIS extremist group will not be ultimately defeated by guns but through ideology, Barack Obama says. The U.S. president made the remarks Monday on the military campaign against the Islamic State group after being briefed by Pentagon officials earlier in the day. He called for co-operation among countries in a fight he said spills over borders. Obama will look to partner with Muslim communities that he said are often the target of ISIS attacks. "The battle for hearts and minds is going to...

    Humans are extremely adaptable creatures; so we tend to quickly acclimate ourselves to our circumstances until they become the "new normal." However, sometimes when you have a hole in the bottom of your boat, it's a better idea to try to address it than to just keep bailing water all day long. For example, here in America we seem to believe that... 1) The only religion it's okay to mock is the most popular one, Christianity: Roughly 80% of Americans are Christian; yet which religion is openly mocked by Hollywood and the mainstream media? Is it Judaism? No, that would...

    Salon ^ | 01/24/2015 | VALERIE TARICO,
    Some of humanitys technological innovations are things we would have been better off without: the medieval rack, the atomic bomb and powdered lead potions come to mind. Religions tend to invent ideas or concepts rather than technologies, but like every other creative human enterprise, they produce some really bad ones along with the good. Ive previously highlighted some of humanitys best moral and spiritual concepts, our shared moral core. Here, by way of contrast, are some of the worst. These twelve dubious concepts promote conflict, cruelty, suffering and death rather than love and peace. To paraphrase Christopher Hitchens, they belong...

    Chinese professor Chi Nan has built her own Li-Fi wireless system that can use LED lights to send and receive Internet data. "I bought the lights from Taobao," she said, referring to the Chinese e-commerce site. The professor from Fudan University showed off the technology on Tuesday at the China International Industry Fair in Shanghai. Unlike traditional Wi-Fi routers that use radio signals, Chi's system relies on light to send and receive data wirelessly. Others scientists, especially in the U.K., have also been researching the technology, and dubbed it "Li-Fi". But rather than develop specialized hardware, Chi bought off-the-shelf retail...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After four rocky weeks while his landmark health insurance law has been disparaged as poorly managed, expensive and disappointing, President Barack Obama will travel to Boston on Wednesday to try to reset expectations about Obamacare. Obama is scheduled to deliver a speech in 271-year-old Faneuil Hall, where some of the seeds of the American revolution took root - and where on April 12, 2006, the start of another historic shift began. Against the backdrop of a huge painting of a famous debate on preserving the union at a time when the nation verged on civil war, then-Republican...

    President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as great and tell him they are all good ideas. Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy. The address didnt include any new proposals on the economy, and Republicans criticized Obama for giving an address that was more of the same. But Obama said the news media often praises his ideas. "Its interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of youve said before; some of them sound great,...

    A new poll for the Hill newspaper finds that more voters trust the Democratic Party than the Republican Party on budgetary issues . . . even though a strong majority actually prefer Republican fiscal policies. The poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken last week by Pulse Opinion Research. It asked respondents to choose between two different budget approaches without their being identified with a particular party. A total of 55 percent picked a plan similar to the one offered by House budget chairman Paul Ryan: Trimming federal spending by $5 trillion, not raising taxes, and reaching a balanced budget...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Rick Santorum has just suspended his campaign. I think the reason for suspending the campaign is it allows you to continue to raise money to pay off your debt, but Santorum's campaign has been suspended. God bless him. I don't know why. I don't know if he had internal polling numbers that looked bad in Pennsylvania. I don't know if it's money. I don't know if it's the accumulation of pressure on him from the establishment. It's probably a combination, some people say unprecedented, in a Republican primary. Negative campaign ads have clearly worked. They drove Newt...

    Haley understands why many politicos interpret Gingrichs maneuvers as a retreat. Haleys job, as he sees it, is to keep the campaign in survival mode until then out of debt, in the news, and prepared for a floor debate. We clearly have an opportunity to win, Haley says. Now, its clear from the delegate math that we have an almost impossible hurdle. But we also believe that Romney will have a very difficult time reaching the necessary 1,144 delegates he needs to be the nominee. If the Republican National Committee follows its rules regarding Florida and Arizona, Romney will...

    Some folks, like Newt Gingrich, read Newt Gingrich's surge in this week's polls as a warm, if belated, embrace of his plan to balance the budget and get this country "back on track." Other folks, like a certain Words Work writer, wonder if the word "ain't" reads a tad unpresidential. "It ain't a day for quitting nothing," Texas governor Rick Perry assured us late last week after his infamous debate brain freeze. ....Oh, fine. But seriously, "ain't"? And not just "ain't," but "ain't a day for quitting nothing?" Was that the best line to hitch your star to on the...

    Americas media is obsessed with every tick of every poll. The reason they cover polls is because they dont want to cover ideas. Republicans should resist being sucked into this reality show mentality and focus instead on the candidates ideas. Herman Cain used this to great effect in the Florida Straw Poll. His powerful speech concluded with a riff in which he talked about how the media had declared, I cant win. He then empowered his audience by telling them, You decide who wins, not the media. Good advice from a candidate that is now watching this particular race from...

I am looking for solutions, Emanuel told the audience during a five-minute opening before he took any questions. I understand people are upset. Change is upsetting."(Snip)The crowd at Malcolm X College was less raucous than the one that greeted the mayor at Kennedy-King College on the South Side on Monday night.
