    Just half a month after the Iran nuclear deal was signed in Vienna on July 14, the Islamic republic of Iran announced on Thursday that it plans to build two new nuclear facilities in its southeastern Makran region on the Indian Ocean. Mohammad Ahmadian, Deputy Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), announced the plans as quoted by the semi-official Fars News Agency. “Two 100MW (megawatt) nuclear reactors will be constructed on Makran coastline of the Sea of Oman to generate electricity,” Ahmadian declared. […] The nuclear deal stipulates that Iran will not build any new uranium enrichment...

    America is an angry country. It always has been. Those who came before us cleared out the locals by any means necessary, then sanitized the genocidal slaughter as they self-immortalized their deeds into the stuff of legend. After the sun dried the corpses, we set upon each other. Our history is splattered in blood and steeped in unrestrained hostility toward all living creatures. People in countries all over the world trip out on America. Not only do we make films the rest of the planet flocks to see — we are living in them as well. America is so larger-than-life,...

    The Obama administration is getting grief from a pro-life group for approving an experiment using the remains of the bodies of unborn children victimized in abortion for research continues in U.S. laboratories. Scott Fischbach, the director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life uncovered the information showing a clinical trial approved by the Food and Drug Administration uses brain tissue from aborted unborn babies to treat macular degeneration.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) isn't backing off the tough rhetoric he's used to describe the Iran nuclear deal, despite criticism leveled by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Thursday. Cruz has steadfastly maintained that President Barack Obama's administration would become a leading state-sponsor of terror if the agreement it struck with Iran makes it past Congress. He and others have argued that Iran would use a windfall from sanctions relief to finance terror abroad. Both Obama and Romney have called Cruz's remarks inappropriate. Romney wrote on Twitter early Thursday that he also opposes the Iran deal, but said Cruz's...

    President Obama opposes Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of damaging videos exposing its fetal tissue donation program. White House press secretary Josh Earnest stopped short of issuing a formal veto threat against the legislation, but he said “on balance, the president would not be supportive of such congressional action.” "This is a tactic we have seen used before," Earnest said of the GOP legislation. "The president obviously does not support that ongoing effort.” The spokesman accused Republicans of trying "to play some politics with some selectively edited videos" and said they were released in a "fraudulent...

    (Reuters) - Procter & Gamble Co (PG.N) reported its sixth straight quarter of falling sales, hurt mainly by the stronger dollar. Even after stripping out the impact of the dollar and acquisitions, sales rose just 1 percent, raising concerns about the slow pace at which P&G is turning around its business. The company's shares fell as much as 4.3 percent in morning trading on Thursday, after it said sales would fall by a low-to-mid single-digit percentage in the year ending June 2016.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wondered Thursday whether opponents of President Obama’s Iran nuclear program agreement read the deal before coming out in opposition to it, and said she’s certain she can keep enough Democrats in line to sustain an Obama veto and preserve his policy. Praising both Mr. Obama and former President George W. Bush, who she said began building the international coalition that first imposed sanctions and then earlier this month agreed to the deal with Iran, Mrs. Pelosi said she was confident the opponents’ campaign to try to defeat the deal in Congress will fail. She also...

    Three universities contributed to a study that shows that children are faring badly in the Obama years, although they stop short of questioning the official unemployment rate. The 2015 Kids Count Data Book, published by the Annie E. Casey Foundation found that “In 2013, nearly a third of children (31 percent) were living in families where no parent had full-time, year-round employment. The child poverty rate has remained stubbornly high. At 22 percent in 2013, it was still several percentage points higher than before the recession.” The report goes on to note that “In 2000, 9 percent of children lived...

While saving some disdain for Donald Trump, POTUS was particularly incensed by the comments of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who said the president's genocide-in-the-making deal with Iran is like marching Israelis "to the ovens." Such rhetoric is "part of a general pattern that you've seen that would be considered ridiculous if it...

    Addressing a gaggle of dictators comprising the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Obama feigned a weak lament that although he considered himself a good president, he could not run again. That pesky thing called a Constitution that his Administration has trampled on for six years was in the way.  "I cannot run again.  I can't run again," he sighed.  Having suffered headaches from listening to a lack of veracity in his pronouncements over the years, I thought, something's not right here.  What has he really done? The answer was simple.  My sense is that the strategy to retain power was likely developed during the...

In a letter to congressional leaders, Lew said he will extend the current debt-suspension period, which was set to expire Friday, through Oct. 30. He said he believes the emergency measures he is using may be sufficient to keep the government operating for a brief period after Oct. 30. Since March 16, Lew has been employing a variety of bookkeeping maneuvers such as removing investments from government...

    Last Tuesday, a 159-page PDF of President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal was leaked online. Paragraph 36 was the most shocking of the agreement — a part the president would probably prefer hadn’t become public, as it demonstrated just how much of a joke the pact actually was. According to the deal’s 36th paragraph, any party — Iran or any future U.S. president — can essentially end the Iran nuclear deal with 35 days notice. Iran can claim that any one of the P5+1 nations is “not meeting its commitments” under the deal. That will then set off a 35-day

    Apartment rents are up. So are prices for restaurant meals, haircuts, gym memberships and a cup of coffee. For American consumers who have become used to flat or even falling prices for several years, an unfamiliar sight has emerged in many corners of the economy: Inflation is ticking up. The price increases remain modest. And in many cases, they’re canceled out by price declines for other items that are keeping overall inflation historically low.

    The new American morning shadowed with trepidation; what new crisis will emerge wholly created by this administration that pits one group of Americans against each other? New morals, values, laws and rights are established at the benefit of a few to the detriment of the majority. All the while this is happening we meaninglessly drift away from the norms established in the past as our own history fades away from popular discourse. In the blink of an eye, or in a generation, society itself unravels as it seems today to have lost the ability to retain the qualities that once...

    Jon Stewart slipped unnoticed into the White House in the midst of the October 2011 budget fight, summoned to an Oval Office coffee with President Barack Obama.... In February 2014, Obama again requested Stewart make the trip from Manhattan to the White House, this time for a midmorning visit hours before the president would go before television cameras to warn Russia that “there will be costs” if it made any further military intervention in Ukraine.... Top Obama aides David Axelrod and Austan Goolsbee knew Stewart’s voice mattered and made sure to field calls and emails from the host and “Daily...

    Videos by the Center for Medical Progress clearly shows top officials from Planned Parenthood discussing selling human body parts for profit, performing partial birth abortions, and discussing the destruction of the unborn in the most reprehensible and inhumane ways. So, of course, the Obama administration has decided to investigate...the Center for Medical Progress. Politico reports: While congressional committees investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices, the Justice Department agreed to look into whether the group that released the sting videos obtained the footage legally. In response to a request by House Democrats, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday afternoon that Justice would “review...

    President Obama has a long-standing, super close relationship with Planned Parenthood, most clearly exemplified by his willingness in 2011 to shut down the federal government rather than allow the abortion giant to be defunded. Obama hasn’t stopped with his own turf. He has also blocked state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. The quid pro quo is obvious: Planned Parenthood spends an inordinate amount of money and engages its vast grassroots network to get pro-abortion candidates elected; then they as pro-abortion legislators hand money back to Planned Parenthood, the most recent example being the Obamacare funding stream. The symbiotic relationship between...

    Summary: The media attack Donald Trump for telling the truth about America’s problems. Yet they ignore the outrageous and tragic scandals of Obama and Hillary, including their embrace of Islamic terrorists, use of IRS against political enemies, and decimation of the American economy. THE TIME FOR CITIZENS TO SPEAK UP IS NOW! Over the last few weeks, the bought-and-paid-for media have been presenting Donald Trump and his outspoken, truthful comments as outrageous. These “Trumped-up” charges are ridiculous. All the Donald has done is point out what mostly everyone knows: Emperor Barack has no clothes. (Spare us the thought.) Indeed, Trump...

    Excerpted from The Hill: Last Tuesday, a 159-page PDF of the Iran nuclear agreement dropped into my inbox. Scrolling down to page 19, I checked out Paragraph 36. I suggest you do the same. Plenty of provisions in the Vienna agreement will get attention in the coming weeks, but Paragraph 36 may be the most important of all. Paragraph 36 tells us when and how the agreement might end. Both friend and foe have touted this deal as “historic” and promised (or moaned) that its provisions will stay in place for the long term. But in practice, this is not...

    Will the U.S. cave into an Arab nation’s pressure—witnessed firsthand by Judicial Watch—to release a senior Al Qaeda operative and Osama bin Laden advisor who has already been refused discharge by President Obama’s special Guantanamo parole board? The terrorist is a Kuwaiti national named Faez Mohammed Ahmed al-Kandari and he’s been a prisoner at the U.S. military compound in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba since 2002. His Department of Defense (DOD) file says he has a history of participating in violent militant Islamic activities, poses a high-risk threat to the United States, has numerous connections to senior Al Qaeda members and was...

    ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — President Obama asserted on Tuesday that he could win a third term if allowed by the Constitution, but said he was looking forward to life after the presidency, when he will be able to take a walk and spend more time with his family. As he wrapped up what may be his final trip to Africa while in office, Mr. Obama took aim at some of the continent’s gerontocracy and called on long-entrenched leaders to step down, declaring that “nobody should be president for life.” But it led to an off-the-cuff riff about his own improved...
