    Seeking war power authority for three years, President Barack Obama is setting up the prospect that his successor will become the third American president in a row overseeing U.S. military forces grappling with turmoil in the Middle East. Passing on an active military mission in the region would be an unexpected and unwanted legacy for Obama, a president who once appeared poised to fulfill his campaign pledge to end U.S.-led conflicts in the region. […] The president has long said the campaign against the Islamic State militants would be lengthy, suggesting it could extend beyond his presidency. But his authorization...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House and State Department struggled Tuesday to clarify President Barack Obama's suggestion that last month's deadly shooting at a kosher deli in Paris was random, despite the administration's earlier assertions that the attack was anti-Semitic. Obama, in describing terror threats during a lengthy interview with the online news site Vox, said the American people were right to be concerned "when you've got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris." Administration officials at first defended Obama's comments, with White House spokesman Josh...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said those who criticize the appointment of Democratic Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) to the Intelligence Committee because he is a Muslim are “un-American.” Schiff, who is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said he has been “deeply disturbed” by the reaction by some to Carson’s appointment last week. “I am deeply disturbed that since his appointment to the committee, Congressman Carson has been subject to vicious, anti-Muslim attacks online and in social media, questioning his loyalty to our country solely because of his faith.”(continued)

    President Barack Obama wants gays to come out of the closet. I think it is time for him to come out of the closet as a Muslim. Point in fact: In the wake of the Paris slaughter that took place last week at Charlie Hebdo, the President’s mouthpieces have already busied themselves in explaining away any connection between that act and the peace-loving followers of Islam. It makes sense given that the Obama administration called out Charlie Hebdo in 2012 for publishing cartoons satirizing Islam. Then-White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters: “Well, we are aware that a French...

    Republicans keep slamming President Barack Obama’s push to move the government away from a war footing and refine and recalibrate counterterrorism strategy. Capitol Hill Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina say Obama is projecting weakness at a time when the United States needs to show resolve against terror networks like al-Qaida. The South Carolina Republican said Sunday that “at a time when we need resolve the most, we’re sounding retreat.” … Obama is trying to recast the image of terrorists from enemy warriors to cowardly thugs and move the United States away a state of perpetual war. But...

    WASHINGTON – As part of a slew of new and drastic airport security measures unveiled today, pResident Barack Obama made the swift move of replacing Janet Naplolitano as head of Homeland Security with the NBA’s empty pistol packing Gilbert Arenas. “When a suspected terrorist is able to board a plane with explosives on Christmas Day, the system has failed in a potentially disastrous way,” the pResident said, “and that is why I have decided to take bold action and replace Mr. … I mean … Ms. Napolitano with Gilbert Arenas.”

    Juliet, that Capulet of Verona, said, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Janet, that Napolitano of Washington serving as secretary of homeland security, would say we're dealing with the Rosa genus in the Rosoideae subfamily of the Rosaceae family, part of the Rosales order of the Magnoliopsida class of the Magnoliophyta division in the Plantae kingdom. And if you said, "What the heck is that?," welcome to the club. Miss Napolitano is really beating around the bush in using the euphemism "man-caused disaster" for terrorism. "O, be some...
