  • Obama: "Son of Islam"?

    02/27/2012 1:28:03 PM PST · by bayouranger · 37 replies · 1+ views ^ | 27FEB12 | Raymond Ibrahim
    According to Sharia law, if one's father is Muslim, one automatically becomes Muslim. "Most of the Muslims I know (me included) can't seem to accept that Obama is not a Muslim." Many in the media are indignant with Reverend Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Invited on "Morning Joe" last Tuesday to discuss Christian persecution, Graham was asked whether he thought President Barack Obama was Christian or not. Although Graham concluded that Obama "has said he is a Christian, so I just have to assume that he is," he appeared skeptical, suggesting Obama's policies disagreed with Christian...
  • Iraq prime minister: Immunity issue scuttled U.S. troop deal

    Associated Press ^ | Saturday, October 22, 2011 | Lara Jakes and Rebecca Santana
    BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq’s prime minister said Saturday that U.S. troops are leaving Iraq after nearly nine years of war because Baghdad rejected American demands that any U.S. military forces to stay would have to be shielded from prosecution or lawsuits. The comments by Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, made clear that it was Iraq who refused to let the U.S. military remain under the Americans’ terms. A day earlier, President Barack Obama had hailed the troops’ withdrawal as the result of his commitment — promised shortly after taking office in 2009 — to end the war that he once described...

    Looking Toward 2012, Obama Finds North Carolina Less Receptive By MARK LANDLERPublished: October 17, 2011 BOONE, N.C. — Loading up on Halloween candy at a store in this friendly college town on Monday, President Obama could probably imagine winning North Carolina in 2012, as he did in 2008, when he became the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter to do so. But hours earlier and a hundred miles away, Mr. Obama got a less warm and fuzzy reception from a lunch crowd at Countryside Barbeque in Marion. Only a few diners rose to shake his hand, while others were vocal in...

    White House adviser on Solyndra: '*#~@ show' By: Dan Berman October 7, 2011 04:53 PM EDT When Solyndra hit the fan in August, White House energy adviser Heather Zichal may have summed it up best. "*#~@ show," Zichal wrote in an email Aug. 25. Zichal’s email is one of dozens showing Obama administration officials were planning on how to handle a Solyndra bankruptcy days before the solar company went under. On Aug. 17, Dan Utech, an energy special assistant in the White House, wrote in an email that DOE had learned Solyndra was beginning to shut down operations. “It’s unclear...

    Obama Has Now Increased Debt More than All Presidents from George Washington Through George H.W. Bush Combined By Terence P. Jeffrey October 5, 2011 Subscribe to Terence P. Jeffrey's posts ( - The Obama administration passed another fiscal milestone this week, according to new data released by the Treasury Department. As of the close of business on Oct. 3, the total national debt was $14,837,099,271,196.71—up about $44.8 billion from Sept. 30. That means that in the less-than-three-years Obama has been in office, the federal debt has increased by $4.212 trillion--more than the total national debt of about $4.1672 trillion accumulated...

    (CBS/AP) Two years after it was saved by a bailout from Washington, General Motors is trumpeting its latest investments in China. As CBS News business and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis reported from Shanghai, American cars are more popular than ever in China, and U.S. automakers sell more cars there than anywhere else in the world. And while that's good news for American car companies, it makes many question what it will mean for American jobs. If you were to visit General Motors in Shanghai, you'd find a lot of what you would in Detroit The plant, says David Gibbons, executive...

It will remind us that although Osama bin Laden was killed by American Navy Seals, the war against radical Islam continues. Indeed, it has simply entered a new phase, the nature of which will be determined by the outcome of the Arab Spring. As in memorial services in previous years, the...

Was it based upon her qualifications?  Doubtful, considering that Shrillary had no foreign policy experience to speak of. Other presidents lacking diplomatic exposure have traditionally brought someone who themselves had such a background to the vital State Department position- alas, somehow Obama didn't feel the need.But perhaps the most unsettling concern for many observers was the fact that Clinton's judgement is warped by her blinding ambition...

    WASHINGTON, August 12, 2011 ( - In a major blow to the Obama administration, an appeals court on Friday sided with 26 U.S. attorneys general who say the president’s health care law is unconstitutional for forcing U.S. citizens to purchase health insurance. The decision came from a 3-judge panel of the Atlanta, Ga.-based 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, and was split 2-1 against the mandate. “This economic mandate represents a wholly novel and potentially unbounded assertion of congressional authority: the ability to compel Americans to purchase an expensive health insurance product they have elected not to buy, and to...

"It doesn't hurt as much as the NFC championship game, but it still hurts," President Barack Obama said. "You guys come into my house to rub it in." Delayed by the lengthy lock-out, the traditional White House visit came roughly half a year after the team's Super Bowl victory. On the way, the Packers knocked off the President's hometown Chicago Bears, giving Friday's event that little extra spice...

But Boehner also accused Obama of failing to lead on the impending crisis over boosting the $14.3 trillion debt limit, according to people inside the GOP meeting. But while Boehner was trying to rally his Republican troops Tuesday morning, he did warn them that they will quickly lose leverage in the debate as the country grows...

The North American Aerospace Defense Command said one of its F-15 fighters was dispatched when a civilian airplane was detected flying towards Camp David airspace in Maryland. The president is spending his holiday weekend there with his family. The intruding aircraft was called a two-seat general aviation craft. The plane was out of radio communication and six miles away from Camp David when the F-15 headed it off.

    Amid vulgar heckling brought on by his own reckless behavior and smug jokes, Weiner told reporters at his three-ring press conference that there is “no higher honor in a democracy” than to be an elected representative. But like legions of entrenched swamp creatures, he’s lost sight of the simple proposition that serving in Congress should remain a temporary calling, not a lifelong career. Last year, the now-jobless Weiner joked on former roommate Jon Stewart’s cable comedy show that he didn’t “have a lot of marketable skills.” It’s one of Weiner’s rare truthful utterances over the past year.

    Barack Obama has had some success already in raising money for his 2012 re-election bid, at least when it comes to big-ticket donors and high-value fundraisers. Yesterday, Obama tried his hand at harnessing the kind of grassroots passion that helped elevate him past Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries and roll to a historic victory over John McCain, becoming the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter to win a majority of the popular vote in victory. As Politico notes, Obama was decidedly less successful with the mainstream than with the elite Democratic donors he’s been wooing lately: A low-dollar fundraiser here...

But while the media rushed to report on the first family’s attendance of the predominately black congregation (and the family’s outfits), what it failed to mention was the views held by the church’s pastor. And while those views are not delivered in the same fiery manner as Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, they sound eerily familiar. What views are those?...

Bloomberg has been among a few outspoken elected officials supporting the plans for an Islamic center and mosque two blocks from ground zero. On Friday, President Barack Obama also backed the right for the developers to build a mosque there. He added over the weekend that he was not commenting on the wisdom of building a mosque close to ground zero.

To justify their policy positions and beliefs, Liberals must jettison the prescriptions of reason, historical fact, and acceptance of human nature.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet, the first lady made the trip because she wanted to spend time with her best friend, Chicago physician Anita Blanchard, who lost her father this summer. Blanchard (who is married to President Obama's best...

    Marilyn Buck, a violent leftist incarcerated for 25 years for her role in some of the most notorious radical acts of the 1980s, including the bombing of the U.S. Capitol and a deadly armored car heist, has died in Brooklyn. She was 62. On Oct. 20, 1981, she was part of a group of Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army members who ambushed a Brink's armored car carrying $1.6 million at a mall in Nanuet, N.Y.

    The National Boy Scout Jamboree ended, Wednesday, and President Obama broke a quasi-tradition by declining to address the Scouts. The quadrennial event has been held at Fort A.P. Hill near Washington D.C. since 1981. This year's event celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the organization. In lieu of an appearance at the 10-day-long Jamboree, Obama appeared on the View, attended several Democrat fundraisers and visited Detroit. He did send a short videotaped message which reportedly was shown in a mix of several other presentations. When the president appeared he was roundly booed by the 35,000 Scouts, one man who was there...

    ”If you check President Obama’s last trip over-seas, his wife left just after their visit to France. She has yet to accompany him to any Arab country. Think about it. Why is Michelle returning to the states when ‘official’ trips to foreign countries generally include the First Lady.” Shepard Smith, Fox News….Here’s one thought on the matter. While in a Blockbuster renting videos I came across a video called “Obama”. There were two men standing next to me and we talked about President Obama. These guys were Arabs, so I asked them why they thought Michele Obama headed home following...

    Here is video of ABC News' Jake Tapper today challenging White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on his constant whining and blaming of Republicans for not supporting the Obama Agenda. After listening to this again from Gibbs, Tapper said: "But isn't the whole point of being President and controlling the House and Senate to 'man up' and make these tough decisions whether or not it costs you at the ballot box in November?" Everyone knows that the Democrats could have passed their entire agenda without a single Republican vote for a full year. It is the radical nature of the...
