    (CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration named Holly Petraeus--wife of retired Gen. David Patraeus, who resigned last week as CIA director after revealing he had had an extramarital affair--to a $187,605-per-yer job in the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB, created by the Dodd-Frank law, was placed by that law under the umbrella of the Federal Reserve. The funding of the CFBP, which comes from the Federal Reserve, is not subject to congressional oversight. Mrs. Petraeus became a member of the CFPB Implementation Team on Jan. 12, 2011. She is now the assistant director for the Office of...

    How long does it take to tell the president that his CIA director is under investigation? Here is the answer Americans are now supposed to believe: longer than it took for the White House to discover that a YouTube video did not inspire the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. In June 2010, President Obama fired Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the U.S. commander in Afghanistan because McChrystal had criticized civilian administration officials in the presence of a writer from Rolling Stone. Obama immediately named Gen. David Petraeus — hero of the Iraq surge — the...

    CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama warned his supporters about the threat of global warming and vowed that more money to subsidize green energy firms would prevent it. “By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax,” Obama said at a campaign rally at the Bank United Arena at the University of Miami. “More droughts and hurricanes and wildfires, that’s not a joke. That’s a threat to our children’s future, and we can do something about it.” Obama said that he planned to spend more money to...

    CNSNews.com) - Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), endorsing Mitt Romney for president Thursday night in Tampa, said Romney is the man who can successfully change the direction of the country -- which is going "backwards" under President Obama, he said. "Our problem with President Obama isn't that he's a bad person. By all accounts, he too is a good husband, and a good father -- and thanks to lots of practice, a pretty good golfer. Our problem is he's a bad president," Rubio said. The senator noted that the new slogan for the Obama presidential campaign is "Forward." "A government that...
  • President Obama and the Debt Crisis: Detached, Alone, and Passive

    The president will be condemned by history for a U.S. credit rating collapse President Barack Obama’s record on the debt crisis hasn’t been a profile in courage. On Monday night, as he spoke from the White House East Room, the president stood exactly where he was at the beginning of debt negotiations: detached, alone, and an outsider. For those of us who have watched the torturous day-to-day descent of this crisis, the president’s detachment and absence have been obvious. On Monday, Politico’s Glenn Thrush reported: “Obama was barely visible for much of the weekend.” As the president faced the nation...

    (CNSNews.com) - Imagine that you had an average monthly income of about $170 balanced against average monthly expenses of about $940--and that you were more than $14,000 in debt.

Now multiply these numbers by 1 billion and you will have the up-to-date financial situation of the U.S. government. According to the Daily Treasury Statement released by the U.S. Treasury Department today at 4:00 p.m., the Treasury had $58.6 billion in cash in its accounts as...

    Mega-millionaire Donald Trump today said during an interview with FoxNewsInsider that Barack Obama is having trouble with, and spending millions to fight, the ongoing questions about his birth, his birth certificate and his eligibility to hold office – and the longer the issue goes on, the more he is convinced there are problems with the president's eligibility. His newest comments on an issue he first raised in an ABC interview more than a week ago came today on the Fox News Channel. "The fact is if you're not born in the United States, you cannot be president. He is having...

    RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) – US President Barack Obama held up emerging powerhouse Brazil on Sunday as a model of economic and democratic transformation that leaders in the troubled Middle East should try to copy. Obama's keynote address in Rio de Janeiro was the highlight of his visit to Brazil, the first stop on a three-nation Latin America tour overshadowed by US-led military action in Libya. The speech came after France, the United States and Britain launched missile and bomb attacks on Libyan air-defense targets to prevent Moamer Kadhafi's forces from crushing a month-old uprising against his rule. Obama did...

    <p>President Barack Obama said he would fight for his long-held pledge to reverse tax cuts for upper-income taxpayers after 2012, in a budget blueprint that doesn't stray far from tax proposals he has made since before taking office.</p> <p>Mr. Obama struck a compromise with congressional Republicans in December that allowed all the Bush-era individual tax cuts to continue for two more years, including those for wealthy households. But on Monday he framed that as a temporary setback.</p>
