    Speaking at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting of the Young African Leaders Initiative that now that he is reaching the end of his term the press is feeling sentimental toward him. “You know, right now I’m at the end of my presidency, so the press is kind of feeling a little sentimental,” he said. “And they think: ‘Ah, you know, he’s gotten old. Look at him, you know, we’ve beat him up. And, so, you know, now let’s focus on the new guys coming in.’ “But,” Obama said,...

    resident Obama took to the microphones on Tuesday to rant about the great evil facing Western civilization: Donald Trump's insistence that Obama use the phrase "radical Islam" in describing a radical Muslim's killing of 49 Americans at a gay club in Orlando, Florida. Obama's original comment on the attack consisted of some platitudes about gun control and some happy talk about "various extremist information that was disseminated over the internet." You know, like in those rogue "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" chat rooms. After Trump slapped Obama for failing to use the phrase "radical Islam," Obama, clearly disturbed, lashed out: "That's...

    Rancho Mirage (United States) (AFP) - US President Barack Obama has hammered home his belief that Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump would not be elected, knocking his reality show past and penchant for drawing media attention. Obama did not limit his criticism to the billionaire real estate tycoon, hitting out at "troubling" statements from the entire GOP field of candidates seeking to replace him. But he reserved his toughest remarks for Trump, offering a scathing assessment of why he thinks the American people will not elect him. "I continue to believe that Mr Trump will not be president.

    (CNN) - Seeking to rebut what he views as perilous election-year bombast about Muslims, President Barack Obama is at a mosque in Baltimore on Wednesday, his first visit to such a site in the United States."Muslim Americans keep us safe," Obama told the audience, crediting the contributions Muslims have made to communities. "They are our police. They are our fire fighters. They're in (the Department of) Homeland Security." At the Islamic Society of Baltimore, a 47-year-old mosque with thousands of attendees, Obama heralded the contributions of Muslims to American society while issuing a forceful counterpoint to the language favored by...

    REVEALED: OBAMA EMAILED HILLARY 18 TIMES! FLASHBACK: CLAIMED HE LEARNED FROM MEDIA Article links to NYT. Excerpt from NYT: The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release. The department’s spokesman, John Kirby, said that exchanges did not involve classified information. The disclosure of the top secret emails, three days before Iowans vote in the first-in-the-nation caucuses, is certain to fuel the political debate over the unclassified computer server that Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, kept in...

    In his first speech to a joint session of Congress, delivered on Feb. 24, 2009--a little more than a month after his inauguration--President Barack Obama warned that we have a "responsibility" not to pass on to our children a federal debt they cannot pay. "There is, of course, another responsibility we have to our children," Obama said in that speech. "And that's the responsibility to ensure that we do not pass on to them a debt they cannot pay. That is critical." At this point, a chuckling Obama paused to accept a standing ovation from the chamber. Then-House Speaker Nancy...

    President Obama hopes to make gun control the top issue of his final year in office, saying Americans aren’t more violent than other people but they “have more deadly weapons to act out their rage.” In an interview published Tuesday in GQ magazine, Mr. Obama said easy access to guns is “the only variable” between the U.S. and other developed countries. “The main thing that I’ve been trying to communicate over the last several of these horrific episodes is that, contrary to popular belief, Americans are not more violent than people in other developed countries,” Mr. Obama said. “But they...

(He means climate change). “Part of my job is to read stuff that terrifies me all the time,” replies the president. That, there, folks is the non-denial denial.

    President Barack Obama’s push to unilaterally commit the United States to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions in the coming years is about changing the constitutional system that similarly hampered former President Bill Clinton’s global warming goals, according to a law professor. In a congressional hearing Thursday, George Mason University law professor Jeremy Rabkin told lawmakers that Obama’s argument that he unilaterally commit the U.S. to a United Nations agreement without Senate ratification was “a real change in our Constitution.” “So, now we’re going to have some body, in some entity, in some foreign country that’s going to be directing us?”...

    Leadership: President Obama was in Germany the last few days, but too many of his recent remarks sound like he's been in high orbit — around another planet. America has never been held in greater esteem than under Obama's leadership. Counterterrorism worked well in Yemen until the emergency evacuation of embassy and Special Ops forces — and the loss of millions in arms. The president's half-hearted "war" on the Islamic State is also a "success." As is ObamaCare, never been working better. Just as he promised.

In 2007, theBBC warned the cap could vanish by 2013. Oh, and we’re at the most industrialized point in human history–and air quality couldn’t be better, according to the EPA.

    The administration has granted about 541,000 Social Security numbers to illegal immigrants under President Obama’s original 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, officials told Congress in a letter made public Wednesday. That means almost all of the illegal immigrants approved for the amnesty are being granted work permits and Social Security numbers, opening the door to government benefits ranging from tax credits to driver’s licenses. Social Security officials, in the April 10 letter to Sens. Jeff Sessions and Ben Sasse, said they don’t keep track of how many illegal immigrants have been denied numbers, and defended their process for granting the...

The promises he made that night were many and, to most in the television audience, at least, sounded fresh. “Nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have,” said the president. “Let me repeat this: nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have.” Simmering throughout this litany of...

    Business and immigration organizations lobbied Obama to expand the green card program for high-tech workers and the relatives of existing U.S. citizens and permanent residents. They've suggested altering how the federal government issues green cards and specialty visas. Rather than counting each individual family member against the overall cap, the government could instead only count the head of a family — and not siblings, spouses, or children. The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president's post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland...

    Republicans have played defense on immigration for so long that they’ve forgotten how to play offense. The waves of aliens, the dead children washing up on the banks of the Rio Grande, the thousands of free airline tickets for reunions with stateside relatives — all of these things are happening because left-wing control of the levers of power has been met by Republican ineptitude. Shock and outrage at administration policies isn’t enough. The Republicans have provided no effective leadership in stopping the tsunami rolling north from Central America.

    Immigration: During his re-election campaign, President Obama said emphatically that the southwestern border was secure. Now he wants billions to cope with the flood of illegals crossing that very border. According to various news accounts, the number of illegals coming across the border has surged to 35,000 month. In just the past few months, more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossed over, creating a huge humanitarian crisis. How can this possibly be happening? After all, didn't Obama tell us when he ran for re-election that the border with Mexico was secure? As a matter of fact, he did. Many times. In...

    Pundits are pointing to President Barack Obama's recent decline in public opinion polls, and saying that he may now become another "lame duck" president, unable to accomplish much during his final term in office. That has happened to other presidents. But it is extremely unlikely to happen to this president. There are reasons why other presidents have become impotent during their last years in office. But those reasons do not apply to Barack Obama. The Constitution of the United States does not give presidents the power to carry out major policy changes without the cooperation of other branches of government....

President Barack Obama, meanwhile, implored Americans to "give peace a chance" with the Iran deal.

    Fraud: President Obama's attempt to fix the insurance cancellation problem that his own law created isn't meant to help anyone. It's an attempt to shift blame for the mess onto the backs of insurance companies. Some fix. Even a cursory glance at Obama's "plan" shows that it won't solve anything. Obama says state insurance commissioners could, if they want, let insurance companies extend existing individual plans another year. But they don't have to. Obama would also leave it up to the insurance companies whether they'd extend these policies, while requiring them to send letters to millions who've already gotten cancellation...

    I don't know how President Obama could get more surreal. At this point, it's hard to tell whether he's more dishonest or delusional. At Obama's news conference Thursday, CBS' Major Garrett pressed him, essentially, to admit he'd flagrantly lied when he promised Americans that with the advent of Obamacare, they could keep their health care plans and their doctors if they liked them. Though Obama did pay lip service to admitting he shouldn't have made the promise "unequivocally," he quickly degenerated into a disjointed string of meaningless verbiage involving nuances, grandfathering, great-grandfathering and whatnot, all designed to confuse us and...

    .... Today, for the first time it appears that 40 percent floor is cracking," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in a statement.President Obama's poll numbers were "sky high" compared to members of Congress, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday after polls showed that the president's approval rating hit record lows. Carney acknowledged that the president's poll numbers were low "for him," but credited the decline to a general frustration with the government. "There is no question that the dysfunction in Washington is taking a toll on everyone," he said. A Quinnipiac University...

    “Access to power,” Plato said in The Republic, “must be confined to men who are not in love with it.” I think that’s pretty good advice, and I wish our masters in Washington were a bit better at following it than they are. It is a curious irony that the burning desire for high office is a disqualifying character trait for the beneficent exercise of high office. But we see corroborative evidence of that irony all around us. More from Plato: “All goes wrong when, starved for lack of anything good in their own lives, men turn to public affairs...

    Have you ever heard of a disease called Kuru? It was discovered in Papua New Guinea in the 1950s to be present among cannibal tribes. The symptoms of the disease itself are almost as frightening as how it was believed to be contracted. In the second stage of the disease the carriers are said to be sedentary, emotionally unstable and depressed. Yet they suffer from uncontrollable outbursts of laughter. The theory is that Kuru did not come from simple cannibalism but more likely from consumption of the human brain. The dysmorphism evident in the infection rates — kuru was...

    President Lucifer’s purge of the U.S. military’s top commanders continues. The latest is Col. Eric Tilley, commander of U.S. Army Garrison Japan, who was summarily relieved of duty and his civilian deputy reassigned, pending a “misconduct” investigation. Col. Eric Tilley F. Michael Maloof reports for WND, Nov. 4, 2013, that Col. Tilley was suspended from his job by Maj. Gen. James C. Boozer Sr., commander of U.S. Army Japan and I Corps (Forward) for a “lack of confidence” based on the results of an inquiry. A spokesman for U.S. Army Japan, Maj. Kevin Toner, would not elaborate on what prompted...

    Among the many rules I grew up with, two stand out. The first was to never call someone a liar, which was considered the worst character indictment one could issue. The accuser had best be prepared to fight or be fleet of foot. The other was a dictum so oft- repeated that it is permanently tattooed on my brain: “If you’ll lie by omission, you’ll lie by commission.” This first rule sheds light on why it was so shocking when in 2009 Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) shouted, “You lie,” as President Obama was addressing Congress. Beyond an insult to decorum,...

    The president misspoke: What he meant to say, a hundred or so times, was: “If I like your insurance, you can keep it.” You may like your insurance, but that is not quite good enough for the Obama administration. Contrary to the endlessly repeated promise of the president and his political allies, millions and millions of Americans who do in fact like their current insurance policies are receiving notices that they will not be allowed to keep them. The White House and its media allies are working furiously to explain away this fact, but there is no explaining it away:...

    In its Sunday paper, The New York Times editorial board defended President Barack Obama from criticisms that he had intentionally misled the public when he had claimed if an individual likes their health insurance plan, they could keep their health insurance plan. The paper’s board also attacked congressional Republicans for stoking fear and confusion, writing that Obama “clearly misspoke” when he repeatedly claimed Americans could keep their health insurance plans as he fought to pass the law and defend it during the 2012 election. “Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that,” the editorial read. “By law, insurers cannot continue...

    Every day,it seems, more people who have been screaming their hatred for those who predicted all we see coming true are admitting what we have known all along. The president is incapable of telling a truth,and what conservatives have been predicting for three years about ObamaCare has been entirely correct. Indeed,we haven't seen anything close to the worst of what is to come,since the system hasn't even begun to function in its utmost state of disarray and confusion. We've seen a website and estimates of premium and deductible figures which have been panic-inducing all on their own. There is not...

    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – these are our recognized rights as demonstrated by the Declaration of Independence. Americans have the right to live, to be free, and follow their dreams as long as it does not deprive their fellow citizens of the same. Constitutionally, there is no ‘right’ to healthcare. But as a society, we have coalesced around the notion that a decent society should provide access to decent healthcare. Unfortunately, the prescription for greater access and lower cost, The Affordable Care Act AKA Obamacare has done nothing to provide greater access or lower cost. In...

    There is no doubt that President ObamaÂ’s health care system promises to fundamentally transform America. ItÂ’s been touted as the saving grace of the working class. But how feasible is it really? We know itÂ’s essentially a wealth redistribution scheme that takes money from one group of people in the form of forced tax payments, only to shift that money into the pockets of those who didnÂ’t earn it in the form of government subsidies to their health care premiums. But like all universal programs, the promise of free anything only works so long as you donÂ’t run out...
