    The ABC News politics and government teams offer a live fact check of President Obama’s first press conference of the year, which takes place, coincidentally, as Republicans in 10 states are voting for which candidate they want to challenge him in November. Fact Check 1 – Millionaires and billionaires pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries. Fact Check 2 – It’s not a matter of “if” Bashar Assad will fall in Syria, but “when.” Fact Check 3 – Iran is more isolated than ever. Fact Check 4 – Obama Jukes Fluke Question and is there a “war on women?”...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed the Obama administration’s handling of rapidly escalating gas prices, saying that he believes the president’s ultimate goal may be to use $9 a gallon gas to revamp the economy along European lines “This president and his secretary of anti-energy, Dr. Chu, have as a goal getting us to pay European-level prices of $8 or $9. Dr. Chu was clear about that before he became secretary. He wants us to get to be a European-level price structure of $8 or $9 a gallon,” Gingrich told “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos. “He said this week, in...

    President Barack Obama has an emerging slogan — “greater together” — that he’s using to spur support among younger voters worried about jobs, education and debt. The collectivist slogan is appearing in more places, including fundraisers and in the title of the “Greater Together Student Summit Tour,” which is sending Obama’s deputies to colleges to galvanize students and youth. On Feb. 1, Obama used the slogan to spur support among young and old African-Americans, and especially African-American women. Less than half of younger African-American men are in the workforce, and the average wealth of African-American families was slashed by the...

    Charles Krauthammer responds to President Obama's suggestion that the U.S. turn to algae for energy production. After making his case, Krauthammer goes head-to-head with Washington Post columnist Charles Lane who defends Obama's energy policy. "I was impressed by the president's analysis of this situation where we have no control over the global price of oil," Charles Krauthammer said. "We're dependent on oil from unfriendlies. And he says, as we heard, drilling for oil to relieve our dependency is not a solution, it's not a plan. He said we have to go to clean energy. He talks about something really revolutionary...

    It’s not exactly Detective Comics #27, or a first printing of the Gutenberg Bible (who knew the Police Academy movies were so rich in religious subtext?), but Friday night saw the release of the inaugural Obama For America Truth Team Tip Sheet, a collection of political bullets for supporters to fire at the watercooler, and into the social media stratosphere. Now, I just need to figure out how to get an email into a durable, acid-free plastic sleeve. The “Truth Team,” rolled out earlier this week, is this year’s version of the President’s 2008 campaign “Fight the Smears” site,

    The Hill ^ | 2/8/12 | Dick Morris
    President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are entering negotiations over — or seeking ratification of — five treaties that could radically limit our national sovereignty and the reach of our democratic institutions. Particularly scary is that the treaties, once signed and ratified, have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered or eclipsed by Congress or state legislatures. And their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts. Those who wish to preserve our sovereignty and democratic control over our future must rally to block these treaties, either by pressing Obama and

    On MSNBC’s Jansing and Co. author Eric Metaxas compared the Obama's administration's encroachment on religious freedoms to Nazi Germany. “I met the president. I gave him a copy of my book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which he said he’s going to read,” Metaxas said during the interview. “In that book, you read about what happened to an amazingly great country called Germany…” “In the beginning, it always starts really, really small. We need to understand as Americans — if we do not see this as a bright line in the sand — if you’re not a Catholic, if you use contraception...

    Some issues fade; others fester. The Obama administration’s contraceptive mandate for religious charities, hospitals and universities is the festering kind. The initial reaction concerned the rights of institutions. Catholic organizations naturally resent being forced to buy health insurance that covers sterilization, contraceptives and drugs that can end a pregnancy soon after conception. The Obama administration seems to have calculated that, since contraceptives are popular and the Catholic Church is not, the outcry would be isolated. But religious liberty is also popular, given the Constitution and all that.

    <p>First Lady Michelle Obama has her unwanted nose in the plates of American children. The British press has its nose in her lavish lingerie. Only satin and lace bloomers and such are good enough for Barry’s wife—$50,000 of it in just one shopping spree! It wouldn’t make much difference to loving parents that unschooled nutritionist Michelle gets to dictate what their little ones eat just because she wears satin bras from an overseas shop called ironically enough, Agent Provocateur.</p>

    Remember this? The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan. The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-I’m Bank says it has not decided...

    President Obama's State of the Union address was mostly about domestic issues, but there was a brief section about foreign policy, which Barry Rubin analyzes here. It included this brief section about Israel. “Our iron-clad commitment to Israel’s security has meant the closest military cooperation between our two countries in history.” This is a carefully constructed sentence which I find makes me even more suspicious about Obama’s commitment toward Israel. Why? Because it is true that the bilateral military cooperation is as good as it has ever been. But all other areas of relations are terrible. This sentence tells me...

    Fox ^ | 1/24/12 | ap
    WASHINGTON – It was a wish list, not a to-do list. President Obama's array of plans in his State of the Union speech was light on a key piece of context -- namely, that his hands are so tied until after the election that it is doubtful many if any of them can be done in the remainder of his term. There can be little more than wishful thinking behind his call to end oil industry subsidies -- something he could not get through a Democratic Congress, much less today's divided Congress, much less in this election year. A look...

    President Barack Obama portrays himself as a hard worker who constantly rolls up his sleeves to help Americans amid the economic recession. But he’s spending more of his energy and time running for re-election than he’s devoting to the ordinary tasks of pushing back special interests that profitably clog government, curb personal freedom and constrict entrepreneurship. (RELATED: Full coverage of Barack Obama) Out on the stump, he’s animated, active and energetic. That’s where his extraordinary talents as a political campaigner show up on TV. It’s a different story inside Washington,

    The Center for Public Integrity released a new report on Obama’s 2012 bundlers yesterday: Dozens of Obama’s elite donors — many of them wealthy business figures — have been appointed to advisory panels and commissions that can play a role in setting government policy. Others have been invited to a range of exclusive White House briefings, holiday parties and splashy social events. And some have snagged lucrative government contracts that benefit their business interests or investment portfolios, a Center for Public Integrity investigation has found. Here’s the breakdown: At least 68 of 350 Obama bundlers for the 2012 election or...
  • Obama's 2012 ad: Solyndra isn't Bain Capital

    Politico ^ | 1/19/12 | DARREN SAMUELSOHN and GLENN THRUSH |
    President Barack Obama’s first paid TV ad of the 2012 campaign had one basic purpose, Democrats say: to ensure that Solyndra doesn’t become the Bain of the president’s existence. Typically, the kickoff ad in a presidential reelection campaign has a gauzy, upbeat, “Morning in America” vibe. Not this one — it was a pointed response to a $6 million ad campaign, paid for by the Koch brothers-linked nonprofit group Americans for Prosperity, which hits Obama on the semi-scandal surrounding the now-defunct, government-subsidized maker of solar power components. It’s clear Obama’s campaign staff in Chicago sees the Solyndra attacks as a...

    Iranian regime supporters carried pictures of Barack Obama and shouted “Death to America” at the funeral procession of assassinated nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan last week. The Iranian regime released details of Barack Obama’s letter to the Islamic state. Obama told the regime that the US will not take hostile against against Iran. Iranian Mehr News reported: A number of Iranian officials have released the details of the letter that U.S. President Barack Obama recently sent to Tehran.

    Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett seems to have Secret Service protection, Keith Koffler writes on his blog “White House Dossier.” It’s the first time the veteran White House correspondent has heard of someone at that level receiving the expensive assistance of Secret Service agents. A local report said at least two agents were with Jarrett during her appearance at an Atlanta church Sunday ahead of Martin Luther King Day. She used the speech to attack Republicans.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/18/12 | Conn Carroll
    President Obama is expected to announce he is killing the Keystone XL pipeline project later today and will audaciously blame Republicans for forcing him to do it. Here is how White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer messaged on the decision last December: "The House bill simply shortens the review process in a way that virtually guarantees that the pipeline will NOT be approved." Obama is also expected to say today that TransCanada is free to reapply for the permit after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive Nebraska’s Ogallala Aquifer habitat. Both these talking points are completely bogus. The...

    CONCORD, N.H. | President Obama is on the Democratic ballot for New Hampshire’s primary on Tuesday, despite the efforts of some Republican state legislators who argue the president doesn’t qualify as a “natural-born citizen.” “I don’t know where he was born, and I really don’t care,” said state Rep. Larry Rappaport of Colebrook, N.H., “but I think fraud is being perpetrated on the citizens of New Hampshire.” Mr. Rappaport and several GOP colleagues have been trying to get the New Hampshire secretary of state to remove Mr. Obama from the ballot. Their argument isn’t focused

    Obama has recruited the annihilationist leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Sheik Qaradawi, to negotiate with the heinous Taliban. That's like FDR reaching out to Hitler. Today the NY Times is reporting that the Obama administration has begun to reverse decades of US policy as it "seeks to forge closer ties with an organization once viewed as irreconcilably opposed to United States interests." What US interests? Freedom and human rights. Individual rights, equal rights under the law, freedom to worship, freedom of speech, freedom from genocide, Jew-hatred, and misogyny ....... this is unbelievable. If given a second term, Obama...
