    Americans received a special Christmas present from the White House: a two-for-one package. Barack Obama’s weekly message also featured a message from his wife and even took the time to mention Jesus, despite the fact that the Obamas have traditionally eschewed going to church on Christmas. By way of contrast, as Mark Knoller of CBS News noted at the end of 2013, George W. Bush attended church 120 times during his eight-year tenure; Obama had attended church a grand total of 18 times in his first five years. Ronald Reagan did not visit church on Christmas, but he offered a...

    ‘Obama Claus’ EDITOR: We must have been pretty good kids this year. The holidays have arrived, and President Obama Claus finally has some goodies in his sleigh — ones we’ve eagerly awaited the past several years. While they might not equal a brand new pony, at least they feel like a very sweet puppy. The Grinch will likely try to pilfer these gifts, as soon as we doze off. But for the moment, let these tidings bring a little comfort and joy. TINA MOORE Rohnert Park

    Speaking to a group of Christian clergy at the Easter Prayer Breakfast he hosted at the White House on Wednesday, President Barack Obama referred to Jesus Christ as “a son of God.” “It’s an opportunity for us to reflect on the triumph of the resurrection, and to give thanks for the all-important gift of grace,” Obama said of Easter, which is this Sunday. “And for me, and I’m sure for some of you, it’s also a chance to remember the tremendous sacrifice that led up to that day, and all that Christ endured--not just as a Son of God, but...

    President Barack Obama is not expected to go to church during Christmas. The president rarely attends worship services, preferring to read scripture and pray in private, according to Politico. Those familiar with his Christian faith say he does not go to church regularly partly because he does not want to disrupt the experiences of regular parishioners and that the Obama family prefers to use Sundays to bond and for downtime. "The president's faith has deepened in the second term; he's said as much," said Joshua DuBois, who headed the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships during Obama's first term. Church-going...

    Today in America we stand in a place few, if any, of us ever dreamed we would see in our lifetimes. There is no overstating the wicked nature of this terrible place. The United States of America has been overthrown by communist enemies within who have waged a decades-long, steady infiltration of every area of power and influence in our nation. I say “decades-long,” but we can look back and see that the cancer began at least a hundred years ago, and it really kicked into high gear in the 1960s. It has now metastasized, and I don’t know that...

    Holder and Obama prefers the company of uber race-baiter Al Sharpton. It is this trio of men, along with New York's equally feckless Mayor, Bill de Blasio, who have cultivated the "us against them" mentality Another seemingly justified police shooting near Ferguson, MO briefly followed a sadly predictable script. In nearby Berkeley, a white police officer, aged 34, fired three shots, killing black American Antonio Martin, aged 18. The officer was responding to a report of stealing at a Mobil on the Run gas station. Martin allegedly pulled a 9mm handgun on the six-year veteran, who stumbled backwards as he...

    In his “fourth quarter,” he feels free to ignore popular opinion, the rule of law, and Congress. Until now there were two types of peaceful American change. One was a president, like Franklin D. Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan, working with Congress to alter American life from the top down by passing a new agenda. The other was popular-reform pressure, as happened in the 1890s or 1960s, to change public opinion and force government to make new laws or change existing ones. Barack Obama has introduced a quite different, third sort of revolution. He seeks to enact change that both the...

    On December 23, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the Commerce Department issued its latest revision of U.S. economic growth for the third quarter period (July through September). According to the BEA, the U.S. economy grew at a 5.0% annual rate during that quarter. Unfortunately, the once honorable Bureau of Economic Analysis of the Census Bureau tweaked the quarterly GDP numbers in order to achieve the 5% growth rate. This tweaking was predicted by Tyler Durden of zerohedge.com.When Durden analyzed the final revision for the first quarter back on June 25 (Here's the reason for the total collapse in Q1...

    The police officer who shot and killed a man on Tuesday in Berkeley, Missouri, was given a body camera but it was not activated at the time of the shooting, officials said today. The shooting sparked new unrest in a region already reeling following an August police shooting a few miles away in Ferguson. About 200 to 300 protesters gathered at the gas station where Tuesday night's shooting happened. When asked whether he was concerned that the officer's body cam was not activated, Berkeley Mayor Theodore Hoskins said he was "not concerned."

The Miami Herald reports that Masiel González Castellano, a woman who was aboard the boat with her husband and 8-year-old son, told reporters her husband remains missing after the assault. She and all those the government could pick out of the water were arrested, and the men remain under custody. “We...

Bolstered by robust spending among consumers and businesses alike, economic output rose at an annual rate of 5 percent during the summer months, the Commerce Department said Tuesday, a sharp revision from its earlier estimate of 3.9 percent. The advance followed a second quarter where growth reached a rate of 4.6 percent after a decline last winter that was exacerbated by particularly harsh weather.

Mohamed Allah-dork Great technological sophistication was needed to take down North Korea's internet. Therefore, experts who had created the ObamaScare website, together with experts from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), managed the project. Together, they provided an elegant solution which, unlike the ObamaScare website, worked perfectly (if only briefly) on the second attempt.

Lawmakers in the government-controlled chamber overwhelmingly adopted a bill dropping Ukraine's non-aligned status -- a classification given to states such as Switzerland that refuse to join military alliances and thus play no part in wars. President Petro Poroshenko had vowed to put Ukraine under Western military protection after winning an election called in the wake of the February ouster in Kiev of a Moscow-backed president.

    Barack Obama should have been around during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Had he been, he might have had second thoughts about propping up the dying Cuban Communist dictatorship of Fidel and Raul Castro. If Obama really wants change in Cuba, all he has to do is wait a while. Fidel is 88, Raul is 83. Back then, in 1961 and 1962, the two hard-core communist revolutionaries wanted to attack the United States, and for a while, they were in possession of enough nuclear-tipped missiles supplied by the Soviet Union to do it

This is astounding, yet for some strange reason, very comforting. From Weasel Zippers via Military Times: … The long-term effects of Obama’s social policies on the military remain unknown. But one thing is clear: He is a deeper unpopular commander in chief among the troops. According to a Military Times survey of almost 2,300 active-duty service members, Obama’s popularity...

    Greetings from the formerly sunny island of Oahu! I haven’t needed my uva and uvb lenses much so far this year, as the little black cloud seems to be following us; the rain I mean.And now I hear that Congress is releasing a report today that reveals our ex-IRS top official Lois Lerner specifically targeted tea party groups and misled the public about its secret political targeting program: The Daily Caller has obtained an advance copy of a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report set to be released Tuesday morning that definitively proves malicious intent by the IRS to...

    Leftist and Islamic supremacist demonization of the police bears bitter fruit. The NYPD Cop-Killing: The Chickens Come Home to RoostPosted By Robert Spencer On December 23, 2014 @ 12:40 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 17 Comments When Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley murdered NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu as they ate lunch in their patrol car last Saturday, the only people who could possibly have been surprised were those who have not realized how assiduously Leftist and Muslim activists have worked – long before the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner — to demonize the NYPD and law enforcement...

    A majority of U.S. military service members will receive a 1 percent pay raise in their basic pay beginning in January 2015, the Pentagon announced on Monday. However, those enlisted members further down the military totem poll will see no pay raise, according to the announcement. “Basic pay for service members will increase one percent, except for general and flag officers who will not see an increase in 2015,” the Pentagon announced. This means that an Army member with the rank of corporal or specialist will receive an additional $22.20 per month, while those service members with the rank of...

    Early in the morning, two hundred thirty eight years ago, George Washington and the Continental Army reached the outskirts of Trenton, New Jersey. Much like today, no-one really wanted to go to New Jersey, but they were forced by circumstances to make the arduous trek. Washington’s force of 2,400 men surprised, and ultimately defeated, the 1,400 Hessian mercenaries who were fighting on behalf of the British Crown. A much needed win was tallied under the Patriot’s side of the scoreboard, emboldening the Continental Army and our quest for freedom. Washington had lead his men through the icy waters of the...
  • GOP report: Top IRS official considered admitting targeting before 2012 election -- but didn’t

    A top IRS official considered going public with the agency’s targeting of conservative groups at a hearing just months before the 2012 presidential election but ultimately decided against revealing the bombshell news, according to a new report from a GOP-led House committee. Then-Deputy Commissioner Steven Miller wrote in an email in June 2012, about a month before a House Ways and Means subcommittee hearing, that he was weighing whether to testify to “put a stake” in the “c4” issue -- apparently a reference to allegations about politics playing a role in the agency’s denial of tax-exempt, 501(c)(4) status to conservative-leaning...

    The oil price drop is really gutting Obama’s green agenda The latest falling oil prices to $55.96 (West Texas Intermediate), dropping from a high of $105 per barrel in June 2014, as a result of increased domestic oil production from fracking, is making the price of $150 per barrel of renewables look ridiculously expensive, not counting the wasted government subsidies in bankrupt solar power companies. The green agenda, which has become a climate change industry, is very lucrative for wealthy climate alarmists and for the United Nations. Dick Morris said, “The oil price drop is really gutting Obama’s green agenda.”...

    A longtime thorn in the side of the Obama administration's immigration policy got the first chance to stick it to the president Monday, arguing in court that his sweeping immigration order -- designed to spare nearly 5 million people from deportation -- is unconstitutional. Arizona county Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his attorney Larry Klayman argued before U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell in Washington, D.C., in the first courtroom hearing for a case against the immigration actions. "We have serious issues of constitutionality involved," attorney Larry Klayman told reporters, after the hearing. Howell, during the hearing, seemed skeptical of the lawsuit...

    HISTORIANS rate presidents by every conceivable quality. What about least lame duck? President Obama is making a run for the title. Since the midterm elections, in his first month and a half as a lame duck, Mr. Obama has taken dramatic action on immigration, climate change and now, normalizing relations with Cuba. In our new political marketplace, the decline of powerful party organizations and the rise of hyperpartisan politics mean that presidents have much less political capital even at the height of their terms. At the same time, they have unprecedented capacity for unilateral executive authority. The great constraints on...
