    President Barack Obama’s annual addresses to Congress offer a glimpse at a leader whose rhetoric on energy and the environment has changed dramatically over the past four years — from his calls to pass sweeping climate legislation in 2009 to a full-throated embrace of natural gas last year. The speeches also matched the ebbs and flows in Obama’s political fortunes. Four years ago, as a popular president with Democratic House and Senate majorities, Obama told Congress that his greenhouse gas proposals would “transform our economy, protect our security and save our planet from the ravages of climate change.” But in...

    Can the President possibly believe that the Grand Bargain he proposed less than two years ago is somehow a raw deal? He is acting as if that's the case. Progressives are once again claiming the problem in deficit negotiations is intransigent Republicans. But looking back at the outlines of the deal the President himself proposed, it's Democrats who are not negotiating in good faith. This is true in at least two important ways. First, the President is not abiding by the balanced approach of spending cuts to taxes he identified. In April 2011 the President published his Framework for Shared...

There were no details on the new initiatives for infrastructure, manufacturing, clean energy and education, elements first reported by the New York Times.” Isn’t this the same plan from his first term? Clean energy was a costly bust, and he still wants to have government control education...

In the annual presidential address to Congress, Obama plans to show he has not lost sight of the economic woes of middle-class Americans - issues that dominated the 2012 election campaign but have been overshadowed recently by efforts to cut the deficit, overhaul immigration laws and curb gun violence.

What allowed Sharansky to survive was his ability to anticipate their moves in a game that began with transparent lies from his government, ones he recognized from kindergarten. This month, as evidenced by the release of a photo supposedly showing the president engaged in skeet-shooting, we have similar mind games being played by the Obama administration and with all the sophistication of junior high...

According to the officials, the urgency of the trip is because in his speech to the United Nations in September, Netanyahu had flagged the spring of 2013 as a significant time in the context of the Iranian nuclear threat.

    If a recent article in the Washington Post is any indication, the Obama administration may feel pressure from the greens to crack down even harder on American coal, especially given news regarding Germany’s increasing reliance on this fuel. Germany is currently harnessing lignite, or brown coal, to offset its reduced reliance on nuclear power. The Post’s Michael Birnbaum worries that this may lead to increased greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. “Now, U.S. coal is spreading around the world instead, pushing down global prices,” writes Birnbaum. “In Europe, that has raised fears among environmentalists that the cheap natural gas in the United...

    Unfortunately, President Obama's nominee to head the CIA, Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan, has shown a tendency to fall for the bait from radical Islamists. Globally, he repeatedly expressed a hope that "moderates" within Iran and its terror proxy Hezbollah would steer their respective constituencies away from terrorism. Domestically, he claims that radical Islam does not pose its own, unique threat to American security. He has helped strip language about "radical Islam" and similar terms from government vernacular, choosing instead to refer to "violent extremism."

    In Philadelphia, about half of all students in ninth grade will graduate from high school. The dropout rate is especially high among black and Hispanic boys.

In other words, force boys who are learning nothing to remain where they are learning nothing, to help make sure that nobody else learns anything, either. If they drop out anyway, turn them into criminals to be rounded up. All this would cost a great deal of money, which Philadelphia does not have. And even if you could...

    Newsmax Ben Carson: US Like Ancient Rome; Obama Not My Target Friday, February 8, 2013 10:05 PM World-renown pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson told conservative radio and television host Armstrong Williams on Friday that his attacks on the nation’s ills in his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast this week were not directed at President Barack Obama. In his first interview since upstaging the president at the event on Thursday, Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore said his comments were “directed at the situation that is going on in our nation and how we can...

    Chicago’s murder rate is far worse now than it was during the city’s most notorious crime era, Al Capone’s “gangland,” when gun-control laws hardly existed, ABC reports. Leading up to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, there were 26 killings in January 1929. Yet, 42 people were killed in Chicago last month, catching the attention of Chicagoans, the White House and politicians nationwide. If the current murder rate continues, February 2013 will far exceed February 1929, when there were 26 killings, including the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

    Staring at a another debt ceiling crisis, the president's punishing the one credit rating agency that dared downgrade U.S. debt in the last crisis. And Wall Street analysts say the timing's no coincidence. Just weeks away from the next debt-limit showdown, the Justice Department filed a whopping $5 billion lawsuit against Standard & Poor's for alleged fraud. The case appears weak, but the message it sends S&P and the other independent rating agencies is clear: Don't downgrade anymore. "It's a foregone conclusion that no more downgrades will be coming," said Euro Pacific Capital CEO Peter Schiff. Curiously, Attorney General Eric...

    The Blaze ^ | 2/8/2013 | Jason Howerton
    With President Barack Obama sitting just feet away, Dr. Benjamin Carson stood up for conservative principles in his speech at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, discussing the national debt, political correctness and even healthcare. Readers loved his speech so much that TheBlaze’s story on it went viral. On Friday, Carson appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” to explain why he felt compelled to speak out against the big government policies endorsed by Obama, in front of Obama. Carson, a renown neurosurgeon, said the response to his speech has been “overwhelmingly” positive. However, he argued he didn’t make a conservative argument, but rather...

    Recent testimony at the Senate Armed Services Committee by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey disclosed that President Obama showed little interest in the September 11, 2012 attack on the US Consulate. “Some 90 minutes into the seven-hour siege I briefed the president with what I felt we knew at the time,” Panetta said. “He didn’t react. He asked no questions. He gave no instructions.” How this sworn testimony should be interpreted in light of Obama’s unsworn assertion that he gave clear directives to “secure our personnel” posed a challenge for Press Secretary...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaHe’s known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”. But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of “America’s JOBS Sheriff”. Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers. And at a time when raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are almost unheard of - Barack Obama has slashed workplace enforcement by a staggering 70% since 2009 - Sheriff Joe and his department keep on working to crack down on illegal aliens in the workplace. Today was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies raided Sportex Apparel in Tempe, AZ,  a custom-made...

    Three years ago, midway through his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama took on the Supreme Court of the United States of America. “With all due deference to the separation of powers,” the president said, “last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests—including foreign corporations—to spend without limit in our elections. [Applause.] I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. [Applause.]” Justice Samuel Alito, by mouthing the words “not true” as Obama read these sentences off...

    American Thinker ^ | February 8, 2013 | Rick Moran
    can't write this without giggling like a 12 year old school girl. As all of you know, CNN's Piers Morgan has been on a gun grabbing crusade since the tragedy at Sandy Hook. He has shamlessly stood atop the dead bodies of little children to make a political cause out of gun control. And he has done it with the most extraordinary sanctimony and moral preening imaginable. Now comes the case of the rogue LA police officer, Chris Dorner, whose obscene "manifesto" praises media elites, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, gun control efforts - and Piers Morgan. Jim Treacher: Apparently it's...

    On Tuesday, Chris Crane, president of the union representing more than 7,600 rank-and-file ICE agents, told the House Judiciary Committee how the agency is "now guided in large part by the influences of powerful special interest groups that advocate on behalf of illegal aliens." Crane testified: These influences have in large part eroded the order, stability and effectiveness of the agency, creating confusion among all ICE employees. For the last four years it has been a roller coaster for ICE officers with regard to who they can or cannot arrest, and which federal laws they will be permitted to enforce....
