    Birthdays are supposed to be times for celebration and gift-giving. But America's upcoming birthday on the Fourth of July is a time when the gift most needed is an urgent warning about the dangers of losing the things that have made this country America — and have long made "America" a ringing word of freedom, not only in this country but to people around the world. All is not lost. But all could be lost — especially if too many of us take freedom for granted and focus our attention on other things, like electronic gadgets and the antics of...

    Saying he's grown frustrated with waiting for congressional Republicans, an angry President Barack Obama said Monday he will bypass Congress and act on his own to make changes to immigration policy by the end of the summer. Obama spoke Monday from the Rose Garden, where he slammed House Republicans for being too accommodating to the conservative, anti-immigration wing of their party and chided House leadership for not working to pass a "darn bill." "They're unwilling to stand up to the Tea Party and do what's right for the country. And what's worse — a bunch of them know better," Obama...

This official said that Obama decided to bypass Congress after House speaker John Boehner informed him last week that the House would not vote on an immigration overhaul this year.

    WASHINGTON — On Saturday, President Obama stood with the parents of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in the White House Rose Garden — a voluntary media event — to announce the deal that exchanged five Taliban detainees for Bergdahl’s release. Days later, that feel-good event stands in contrast to the deal’s reception, with reports from soldiers he served with that Bergdahl may have been a deserter, and lawmakers demanding to know why the administration did not notify Congress of the deal in advance. Tommy Vietor, one of Obama’s former top aides, said Tuesday the goal of Saturday’s event was to get in...

Carney seemed surprised by the interruption. Carney said he would leave soon, probably the second or third week of June. He will leave the White House but says he has not decided where he will go. “It’s been an amazing experience, just, so fulfilling,” Carney said, thanking the president and vice president.

    This is disturbing on a lot of levels. First, Christians don’t ask Muslims to pray for them. A Christian believes that the God of the Bible is the only God, and asking someone to pray to Allah is asking those people to put another God before Him, which is the first commandment. Secondly, no other world leader that is not a Muslim has ever done anything like this before. Obama sympathizes with a religion that literally wants to wipe us off the face of the planet. They kill women, children, gay people, or anyone that offends them. You would like...

U.S.-Russian relations plunged to one of their lowest points since the Cold War this week after Russia granted temporary asylum to fugitive former U.S. spy contractor Edward Snowden. Obama retaliated by abruptly canceling a Moscow summit with Putin planned for early next month. At a White House news conference on Friday, Obama insisted that he does not have bad personal relations with...

He described his working relationship with Vladimir Putin as ´candid´ and ´blunt,´ and seemed to dismiss concerns that the Russian president´s body language indicated a lack of willingness to work with the United States.
