    President Obama kicked off the final news conference of his first term by renewing his call for Congress to approve a “balanced” deficit-reduction package that includes both spending cuts and new revenues. Republican leaders have said repeatedly that the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff agreement ended any discussion of raising new revenue and that in upcoming negotiations they would deal only in spending cuts. Obama made clear that he does not agree. He reiterated that he is “open to making modest adjustments to programs like Medicare.” “The fact is, though, we can’t finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts...

    The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates. In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America. This was followed up by another record in December. 2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012.

    Anyone know what Vice President Joe Biden’s gamer handle is? Maybe “StandUpChuck” or “Amtrak1” or “NoChanceIn2016?” How about Attorney General Eric Holder (“Fast-
andFuriousUnleashed”)? Or Health and Human Services chief Kathleen Sebelius (“WhatsAGamerHandle?”). I ask because these folks led Friday’s session of the White House task force that grilled members of the video game industry. Three people who couldn’t tell “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” from “Assassin’s Creed II.” To be honest, I’m not entirely sure I could, either. (Is “Halo” the one with Master Chief, or is it “Gears of War”?) But I’m not the one accusing an entire multibillion-dollar,...

    ....Netanyahu is expected to redefine his "natural partners" after the upcoming election, shifting from a nationalist government to a more leftist one. The Ma'ariv newspaper quoted senior Likud members as saying that because of a need to focus on issues such as the economy and due to pressure that is expected to come from US President Barack Obama in regards to the peace process, Netanyahu is expected to shift his coalition more towards the center-left in an effort to build as broad a coalition as possible. "Netanyahu would prefer to give up the religious parties, especially in light of the...

    The New York Times ^ | 1/12/2013 | Jim Rutenberg
    In the bitter debate that led up to the American invasion of Iraq in 2003, Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska said that some of his fellow Republicans, in their zest for war, lacked the perspective of veterans like him, who have “sat in jungles or foxholes and watched their friends get their heads blown off.” Those Republicans in turn called him an “appeaser” whose cautious geopolitical approach dangerously telegraphed weakness in the post-Sept. 11 world. The campaign now being waged against Mr. Hagel’s nomination as secretary of defense is in some ways a relitigation of that decade-old dispute. It is...

    “When it was my turn, they took me blindfolded,” the thief said. “Suddenly I felt a pain in my right hand that was out of this world. My hand had just been chopped off.” This is Gao, once the seat of an empire, and then a glorified village, and now a city the size of Scranton under the boot of its Islamist conquerors. Gao has become a place where thieves have their hands cut off, where women are forced to wear the stifling Hijab in 113 degree heat or be lashed and where unmarried couples are stoned to death.

    French fighter jets struck deep inside Islamist strongholds in northern Mali on Sunday, shoving aside months of international hesitation about storming the region after every other effort by the United States and its allies to thwart the extremists had failed. For years, the United States tried to stem the spread of Islamic militancy in the region by conducting its most ambitious counterterrorism program ever across these vast, turbulent stretches of the Sahara. But as insurgents swept through the desert last year, commanders of this nation’s elite army units, the fruit of years of careful American training, defected when they were...

    Anyone who thinks congressional Republicans will roll over on the debt ceiling or gun control or other pending hot-button issues hasn’t been paying attention. But the President can use certain tools that come with his office – responsibilities enshrined in the Constitution and in his capacity as the nation’s chief law-enforcer — to achieve some of his objectives. On the debt ceiling, for example, he might pay the nation’s creditors regardless of any vote on the debt ceiling – based on the the Fourteenth Amendment’s explicit directive (in Section 4) that “the validity of the public debt of the United...

    In a video uploaded to YouTube yesterday, Anonymous warned of an "insurrection" in the United States and said that the federal government is using the Sandy Hook school shooting as an excuse to confiscate weapons from law-abiding citizens. It appears that the original video was uploaded on Dec. 24, 2012 and has received about 1,000 views, but within the past two days, renewed interest in its message caused over a dozen copies to appear online and receive tens of thousands of views. According to CNN, Vice President Joe Biden's gun task force will have their recommendations ready on Tuesday. "Many...

    Our office has been asked for a statement from Douglas Wilson on the news that he has been formally uninvited from delivering the prayer at President Obama's Second Inauguration. This controversy, as many know, revolves around the fact that Pastor Wilson made a joke a number of years ago in a sermon about how Brian McLaren's theology was gay enough to be made conga queen at the Fire Island Fruit Festival. When the AP asked Pastor Wilson about the joke, he had forgotten about it completely. When the tape was played, Pastor Wilson laughed all over again, and said he...

    Colin Powell is NOT a Republican. If a chicken calls itself a cow, is the chicken a cow? Of course not. Powell appeared on “Meet the Press” with David Gregory on Sunday and sounded like he just attended the Nancy Pelosi Summit of Anti-Conservative Talking Points and Race Baiting. Powell referenced Sarah Palin and John Sununu, two conservative patriots, as being racist. He said Palin’s use of the phrase “shuckin’ and jivin” is racist. He said Sununu’s description of the President as “lazy” is racist. I am half-tempted to check out my local library to see if it has a...

    Rock legend and gun-rights activist Ted Nugent took the Obama administration to task Sunday evening for pledging to make gun control a priority, telling a radio host the president’s plans are practically “psychotic.” “A person who lives by logic and studies history and tries to implement the lessons learned by history cannot begin to rationally explain the conduct of this president or his attorney general or this administration,” Nugent said. “It is psychotic, it is crazy, it is illogical.” Nugent was speaking to Aaron Klein of New York WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.” Nugent explained that many people have...

    A few weeks back we reported to you at PPS that some surprises were in the work on the Obama citizenship scandal. We reported that we expected some breaking news on the matter within weeks. The particular event that we expected did not happen, but only through a very strange and unfortunate set of circumstances. However, do not be dismayed, as it turns out the plan b for the matter may turn out to be a more powerful revelation event than the first planned one. Since it still involves some of the same major players and perhaps even more major...

The proposal targets three key areas:...

    Aaron Swartz, 26-year-old genius, computer prodigy, co-creator of RSS and Reddit, is dead. Swartz committed suicide in the wake of relentless bullying and persecution/prosecution by Eric Holder's Department of Justice. Swartz was "driven to the edge" by the government's aggressive prosecution of a non-existent legal case. Swartz made public documents available to everyone -- this was his crime. “It’s like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library.” Put this in context. Obama's DoJ, headed by Eric Holder, refused to prosecute thr Black Panthers who violently threatened voters with billy clubs and...

    "My office will not comply with any federal actions which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold," Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman said. FRANKFORT -- An Eastern Kentucky sheriff said Saturday that he will not enforce any new gun control laws that he considers unconstitutional. Asked whether such a stance makes him more a judge than a law-enforcement official, Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman said he has "a team of attorneys to step up with me if necessary to be sure the Second Amendment is upheld." "I consider this a moral obligation," he...
