  • Obama to propose $10-a-barrel oil tax

    The Politico ^ | February 4, 2016 | Michael Grunwald
    President Barack Obama is about to unveil an ambitious plan for a "21st century clean transportation system." And he hopes to fund it with a tax on oil. Obama aides told POLITICO that when he releases his final budget request next week, the president will propose more than $300 billion worth of investments over the next decade in mass transit, high-speed rail, self-driving cars, and other transportation approaches designed to reduce carbon emissions and congestion. To pay for it all, Obama will call for a $10 "fee" on every barrel of oil, a surcharge that would be paid by oil...

    Whatever the reason, President Barack Obama got a lot of things factually wrong in his 3 February 2016 speech at the Islamic Center of Baltimore. Things that are basic to doctrinal Islam are not only knowable because they are readily available in English but, it might be argued, obligatory that an American commander-in-chief should know in fulfillment of his oath to defend the Constitution against “all enemies foreign and domestic.”
  • Bush: Obama speaking at mosque is 'more than appropriate'

    eb Bush said Thursday it was "more than appropriate" for President Barack Obama to speak at a mosque, a departure from several of his Republican rivals. But, Bush argued, it took too long for Obama to make his first visit to a U.S. mosque as president. "I don't think it's divisive to go speak in a mosque. I'm surprised it took his eighth year to do it," the former Florida governor told reporters after stopping at a diner here. "The bigger issue is what have you done to deal with ISIS. It's important to recognize that peace-loving Muslims who are...

    A major bust involving the nation's most violent street gang reveals that the criminal enterprise--known as Mara Salvatrucha or MS-13--continues to be energized with new recruits provided by the steady flow of illegal immigrant minors entering the U.S. through Mexico. The affiliation between gangs and the hordes of Central American illegal immigrants who continue invading the U.S. is a story Judicial Watch has been reporting for more than a year. The Obama administration calls them Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and tries to portray them as innocent, desperate kids fleeing violence and famine in their homeland.

    "Americans are working," President Obama proudly declared at a White House press conference Friday morning. He was referring to the new jobs report that revealed unemployment has dropped to 4.9 percent - the first time it's fallen below 5 percent in 8 years. The president also remarked on how his administration has added 14 million new jobs over his tenure and that over the past 6 months wages have risen at an impressive rate. He couldn't help pointing to falling gas prices as well. After gleefully sharing these new numbers, Obama quipped that the supposedly successful economy is "inconvenient" for...

U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin saw the case differently. He released the 34-year-old on a signature bond with no electronic monitoring, noting he had no criminal history, was employed and had strong family ties to Milwaukee. Now,...

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a Marine veteran, and Rep.

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is planning to cut 50 percent of the budget for aerial surveillance along the U.S.-Mexico border, agents revealed at a congressional hearing Thursday. In an effort to understand why DHS is cutting funding, Texas's Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, wrote a bi-partisan letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. "Any decrease in aerial observation is not only imprudent, but contradicts the very mission of border security enforcement," the letter states. The lawmakers' letter also asks for detailed information about the reduction aerial-based border security, also known as Operation Phalanx. Abbott and...

    The Obama administration will reportedly unveil a proposal next week that would place a $10 tax on each barrel of oil produced in the United States. The proposal is part of the President’s budget for fiscal year 2017. The $10 oil tax would raise an estimated $32 billion, and the money would be used to fund an ambitious program of investments in clean energy, mass transit, high-speed rail, self-driving cars, light rail, subways, buses, and much more. The investments could total $300 billion in new spending. The proposal would help bring America’s infrastructure into the 21st century, and provide “a...

The social media network banned gun sales by private individuals on its website Friday. Unless you're a licensed weapons dealer, you cannot sell guns on Facebook. But according to some Arkansans, there's some grey area there. On Tuesday, Arkansans found their Facebook accounts shut down because of the new policy. They have questions and are demanding answers. “There was never any violence, any murders anything you would consider a violent crime due to a Facebook gun group,” said Dominick D'Angelo,...

    Barack Obama suffers from serious case of the real Islamophobia -- fear of telling the truth about Islam. Even though a "progressive," he says nary a word about the rampant misogyny and homophobia in Islam or about Sharia law whose medieval strictures are preferred by 51% of American Muslims. Nor does he seem to care that so few of these same American Muslims actively oppose radical Islam. The president prefers the Hamas-linked CAIR to courageous reformers like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser. But that's no surprise. For Obama, radical Islam doesn't even exist. Instead, he claims American citizens are mistreating their Muslim...

For example, several of the former secretary of state’s “private” e-mails contain national-defense information so sensitive that it is classified at the highest levels. Moreover, classified information so pervades the thousands of pages of e-mails communicated through and stored on Mrs. Clinton’s unsecured, homebrew server system that the court-ordered disclosure process has ground to a halt. Remember, Mrs. Clinton reviewed her e-mails before finally surrendering them to the State Department, and she initially insisted there was no classified information in them.

    Can an authoritarian regime convert to democracy by itself? The historical record isn't encouraging. In the absence of a popular uprising, it is rare for tyrants to voluntarily retire. The military junta of Burma has promised to relinquish some power to an elected government, but it has not yet delivered. China's party-state shows no inclination to try. Russia's strongman is reversing what incipient democracy existed. This goes to the core of why President Obama's opening to Cuba seems to be failing to live up to its declared goals. When the end to a half-century of hostility was announced in December...
  • ‘Gender Apartheid’: NYT Op-Ed Calls Obama Mosque Visit a Setback for Muslim Women’s Rights

    A New York Times op-ed argues that Obama’s visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque “demonstrates tacit acceptance of a form of gender apartheid.” From the New York Times: As President and Michelle Obama argued decades ago in the context of the U.S. civil rights movement, separate is indeed unequal. To Muslim women’s rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform — from equal education for women and girls to freedom from so-called “honor killings” — the president’s visit to a mosque that practices such blatant inequity represents a step backwards....

    When you were a rowdy teen, your parents were the Establishment. Now that you're a parent, what are you? The anti-establishment, cool parent? Not likely. Rather, you're a grownup who tries to keep the peace in your discordant household; who tries to negotiate among self-interested, imperfect family members who have competing goods and goals; and who tries to instill a long-range vision for the future in your desire-ridden family who wants instant self-gratification. Welcome to the Establishment. You're a bona fide member now. Here's a defense of the amorphous, notional Establishment, as I see it, if it even exists in...

    Unlike his GOP opponents, Trump stands apart from the traditional establishmentarians on the right. On the Democratic side, Sanders and Clinton compete to out-talk one another with the exact same catchphrases and fictitious dramas about income inequality, gun violence, sexism and racism. On the Republican side, all the candidates talk big on amnesty and illegal immigration after they've all spent years supporting it. They all talk about the grassroots after taking million dollar checks from the right-wing donor class and Wall Street. They all blur together. Among them, only one candidate stands out. While the two Democratic front-runners and all...
  • January Gun Sales Set Yet Another Record (Ninth monthly record in a row)

    The FBI conducted more gun-related background checks this January than in any other January since the system was created. With 2,545,802 checks processed through the National Instant Background Check System, January 2016 beat the previous record, set in January 2013, by 50,326 checks. Though January’s number represents a drop from the all-time single month record set in December 2015, it is also marks the ninth month in a row that has set a record. It is also the third month in a row with more than two million background checks.

    For the first time during his seven years in office, President Obama visited a mosque on Wednesday to share a message of 'religious tolerance and unity.' "We're one American family, and when any part of our family starts to feel second class or separate or targeted, it tears at the very fabric of our nation," the president said. Muslims, he continued, are "some of the most resilient and patriotic Americans you'll ever meet." He even spoke about how "Islam has always been part of America." "Islam has always been part of America," he said, detailing the beginnings of the...

    As President and Michelle Obama argued decades ago in the context of the U.S. civil rights movement, separate is indeed unequal. To Muslim women’s rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform — from equal education for women and girls to freedom from so-called “honor killings” — the president’s visit to a mosque that practices such blatant inequity represents a step backwards. While it may be meant to convey a message of religious inclusiveness to American Muslims, the visit demonstrates tacit acceptance of a form of discrimination that amounts to gender apartheid....

    "President Obama spoke warmly about Islam during his speech at a mosque today, highlighting the contributions that Muslims had made to the fabric of American society. “Islam has always been part of America,” he said, detailing the beginnings of the religion among African slaves brought to America. He also pointed out that Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Virginia statute for religious freedom that the “Mohammedan” should have his faith protected in the United States. Obama met with Muslim leaders during a visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore, before delivering a speech there. This is Obama’s first visit to a...

    On Monday the U.S. national debt hit a new record: $19,012,827,698,418. This is the first time the national debt has ever exceeded $19 trillion. That's more than $58,000 for each person who lives in the U.S. today (including children). The main culprit behind the rising deficits and debt is growing federal spending--especially among Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare. Traditionally, Congress has set a limit for how much debt the U.S. may take on, known simply as the debt limit. But rather than put a higher limit on the debt, lawmakers and the president have repeatedly suspended the debt limit,...

    video: President Obama took on the role of television critic in remarks today at the Islamic Society of Baltimore."Our television shows should have some Muslim characters that are unrelated to national security," the president said at the mosque, "because -- it's not that hard to do. There was a time when there were no black people on television. And you can tell good stories while still representing the reality of our communities."
