    Daily Mail The U.S. Army's Combating Terrorism Center posted an explosive report early this morning that contains what are the last letters Osama bin Laden wrote before the raid that killed him a year ago.  The biggest bombshell is this: He wanted to target planes that Barack Obama and Gen. David Petraeus to promote the "utterly unprepared" Joe Biden to the office of presidency.From the letter bin Laden authored, the mission was of "anticipating and spotting the visits of Obama or Petraeus to Afghanistan or Pakistan to target the aircraft of either one of them." They are not to target...

    Osama bin Laden aimed to assassinate President Barack Obama but directed fellow al-Qaida fighters to leave Vice President Joe Biden alone, describing him as "totally unprepared" to take over and predicting a "crisis" in America if that happened, according to a newly declassified letter from the terrorist mastermind. In the missive, part of a trove of documents seized by Navy SEALs in the raid that killed bin Laden one year ago, bin Laden asks for an update on a plan to kill Obama or Gen. David Petraeus either in Pakistan or at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. (Obama made a...

    While I am waxing sarcastic I will explain why. Romney and/or his surrogates have repeatedly let us know either implicitly or explicitly that when Obama makes hay of an issue (like killing Bin Laden or campaigning on college campuses on the issue of college loan interest rates, etc, etc) they will call him out for distracting voters from his abyssmal jobs record. This allows Romney to operate in and on a range of issues, while isolating Obama to one issue. Romney's political mindset is easy to follow as it flows from his business mindset: Romney sits and the end the...

    Those conservatives who argue against "birthright citizenship" have just been thrown under the same bus as the "birthers" -- whether or not they like it, or the GOP admits it. The mainstream media, longtime foes against reform of the anchor baby practice, have been happy to help. And instead of quietly watching while a sizeable portion of the Republican party is run over, as in the case of the "birthers," we now have the GOP establishment lending the media a hand in brushing aside many immigration reform advocates -- by pushing the selection of Senator Marco Rubio for the VP...

Barack Obama gave a shoutout to himself while speaking to US troops in Afghanistan this week. “We got me in the house!” Oh, yippie. President Obama gave a shout-out to President Obama during a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday. Speaking to American troops gathered at Bagram Air Base, the president called out the names of several military units “in the house”—who cheered upon hearing their name—before adding: “And we’ve got me in the house.”

    Facts are sometimes nasty, persistent things that get in the way of the best political spin. President Obama likes to say that oil production is up and that the rise in gasoline prices is not his fault, but the facts challenge his words. Energy production is up, but only due to policies and practices set in motion ten years ago by the George W. Bush administration, and production is up only on private fields. (Snip) Economists estimate that for every $0.01 increase in a gallon of gasoline sustained for one full year, the economy loses $1 billion for that year.

    WASHINGTON, May 4 (Reuters) - U.S. employers cut back on hiring in April and more people stopped looking for work, dimming hopes the economy was turning a corner just as President Barack Obama steps up his re-election campaign. Employers added 115,000 workers to their payrolls last month, the Labor Department said on Friday. That was well below economists' expectations. The unemployment rate ticked down by a tenth of a point to a three-year low of 8.1 percent, but only because a drop in the number of people hunting for jobs shrank the labor force. It was the third straight month...

    The Social Security Administration last month told its disability-claims judges they are no longer to seek out information from websites when deciding cases — taking away a tool some of those judges say would help in uncovering fraud. Agency officials said reviewers can't trust information posted online, and also said the mere act of typing in queries could compromise protected private information, so they shouldn't try to access anything. Social Security's ban covers all Internet sites, including social media such as Facebook. But Sen.

    Late last week a State Department spokesman uttered “The war on terror is over.” That utterance was followed up by President Obama’s surprise trip to Afghanistan (“coincidentally” on the anniversary of the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden, or so we are told…). While in Afghanistan, Obama gave a political speech aimed at folks back home in America in which he echoed the sentiments of his State Department spokesman in essentially declaring Al Qaeda beaten. Before we deconstruct this politically motivated fantasy, we should probably point out that we are not now, nor were we truly ever engaged in a...

    This is what a stagnant economy looks like. The gain of 115,000 jobs is less than enough to keep up with population increases, and was below the median economic forecast for April. The only reason that the unemployment rate “fell” to 8.1% is because the labor force participation rate keeps dropping. If you stop looking for work, you aren’t unemployed. But you’re not employed either. You’re just “missing.” You don’t count. Welcome to the country we now live in: the Stag-Nation. UPDATE: Labor force participation rate drops by a staggering 522,000 to the lowest level since 1981. That, btw, was...

David Petraeus, at the time the leader of the American military effort in Afghanistan.

Obama's reelection campaign has unleashed a daily, negative, character-based slashing of his November foe, ahead of the president's official campaign kick-off rallies in the crucial battlegrounds of Virginia and Ohio on Saturday. In the latest volley, Obama's camp produced a memo accusing Romney of pursuing an "extreme" agenda towards women, seeking to lock in the Republican challenger's liabilities with the key electoral demographic.

    “We should also look for an American channel that can be close to being unbiased, such as CBS, or other channel that has political motives that make it interested in broadcasting the point of view of al Mujahadin,” Bin Laden wrote in one of the letters uncovered in the raid that killed him. But one of his top aides, American-born Adam Gadahn, raged against coverage of the terror group on U.S. television. Gadahn believed that several of the American networks, in particular CNN, were “in cooperation with the government” —and saved much of his scorn for Fox News. -snip However,...

The decision will allow a new government to be in place in advance of the U.S. presidential contest that will take place two months later. If Israeli opinion polls are correct that will mean even if President Obama is re-elected, he still will be faced with his old antagonist Benjamin Netanyahu as his counterpart in the U.S.-Israel alliance.

We now have a new definition, courtesy of our present commander in chief: a place to remind everyone that Osama bin Laden is still dead. On the anniversary of bin Laden's demise at the hands of U.S. special operators, the Barack Obama re-election campaign made a "surprise" middle-of-the-night visit to Kabul, Afghanistan....

Rep. Charles Boustany's questions revolve around an obscure tax deduction for companies that work on energy-efficient buildings. He said documentation shows the GSA might have been trying to demand a 19 percent kickback -- from the deduction itself -- for companies that do this work. If that's the case, Boustany expressed concern about where that money was going -- considering the hundreds of thousands of dollars GSA has spent over...

Mitt Romney are deriding the Obama campaign’s latest pitch to women — a video slide show that describes how progressive politicians aid a fictional woman named Julia throughout her life. The slide show follows an apparently unparented Julia who is enrolled in Head Start, gets free contraceptives while she works as a 20-something web designer, has one child, retires around age 65 and finally volunteers in a community garden. “That’s their dream for women?” asked Wendy Wright, a social conservative leader and acting director of the conservative Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute. “That...

    Forward! Comrades, you can't make it up. Can you say "campaign blunder"? Or is it a blunder? Is it deliberate? The socialist mind at work in campaign mode? The Obama campaign has picked a portion of one of the most infamous socialist slogans of 20th century history to use as its own new campaign slogan. "Forward" is the new Obama slogan, Team Obama borrowing boldly from none other than the late Communist Party of China leader Chairman Mao. Mao's slogan? "The Great Leap Forward."

    The first closet has increasingly become a subject of interest since Michelle Obama swept fashionably into the White House in her Jason Wu ball gown. Yesterday, Ann Romney’s clothes stole the spotlight as she wore a fashionable top on Tuesday for an appearance with her husband on CBS “This Morning.” Politico reported that the Reed Krakoff shirt would “cost you a pretty penny,” at $990. But Mrs. Romney will need to step up her fashion game if she wants to fill the shoes of Mrs. Obama. In March, the first lady visited her British counterpart Samantha Cameron wearing a L’Wren...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: A couple of stories here from the Associated Press. The first one: "US Applications for Unemployment Aid Drop Sharply -- The number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell last week by the most in nearly a year. The figure was a hopeful sign that hiring could pick up in coming months." This is a seesaw. Just yesterday we had the news from ADP that new jobs were paltry, 119,000. Now, this report contradicts what ADP put out yesterday. "US Applications for Unemployment Aid Drop Sharply," which means fewer people are supposedly out of work. Now, we've told...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House is sidestepping questions about how the U.S. might resolve the predicament surrounding a blind Chinese activist who sought refuge in the American embassy and who no longer wants to remain China. White House spokesman Jay Carney referred questions about asylum for the activist, Chen Guangcheng, to the State Department.

    (Legal Editor Note: Not long ago, the Left had a monopoly on rallies and protests. Republicans and conservatives, more enamored with scholars instead of brawlers, shunned displays of political muscle in the streets. That’s all changed. A few months ago, Attorney General Eric Holder went to the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas, to announce an aggressive attack on state election integrity measures like Voter ID. This election-year strategy is designed to stoke the leftist base but risks alienating everyone else. To greet Holder that day were hundreds of citizens at a rally sponsored by True the Vote. I...

    President Obama has made a reelection point of complaining that “big oil” receives tax breaks and that individuals and corporations need to pay “their fair share”. Critics point out that the term is ambiguous and cannot be used for budgeting however it can be useful in campaign ads. Research into public documents indicates that General Motors paid no taxes in 2011, despite being touted as a success story of the administration which took over a 60% interest in GM in 2009. Similarly, General Electric, whose CEO, Jeffery Immelt, is a senior adviser to the council on jobs and competitiveness to...

    He has modelled himself as a cool, calculated leader of the free world. But at the age of 22 Barack Obama had a strong 'sexual warmth' that overwhelmed his girlfriend at the time, according to a new book that identifies her for the first time. Vivid diaries written by Genevieve Cook reveal she was driven wild. She said that on Sundays the future U.S. President loved to lounge around bare chested in a white and blue sarong whilst doing the newspaper crossword. In a controversial claim she also recounted how he was deeply confused about his racial identity and 'felt...
