    As the corporate-owned, liberal legacy media continues its all in offensive to get Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, elected president, the man she would replace in the oval office is going on the offensive against alternative news sources. We are going to have to rebuild within this Wild, Wild West of information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to, U.S. president Barack Obama said on Thursday during a speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Wait what? Curating function? That sounds an awful lot like censorship to us While Obama claimed he was not embracing censorship, he said...
  • Obama Paints 'A Fairly Sizable Number' of Republican Primary Voters As 'The Swamp of Crazy

    Democrats have Republican friends and neighbors who are "some great people," President Obama said Thursday at a campaign rally in Ohio. But the Republican base includes a "swamp of crazy" -- people who deny climate change, espouse conspiracy theories, listen to Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Obama said Republican politicians who "knew better" never spoke up. So "all that bile -- all that exaggeration, all that stuff that wasn't grounded in fact, just bubbled up," Obama said -- producing Donald Trump as the Republican Party's presidential nominee.

    President Obama spoke to a group of young Southeast Asian leaders Friday in Malaysia and warned them about about avoiding the "pitfalls" the United States suffers from, the Washington Times reports. Human Rights Watch says on its main Malaysia page that the country’s government has engaged in a "strong crackdown on civil and political rights, including charging organizers of peaceful demonstrations. Though he had promised to repeal the Sedition Act, Prime Minister Najib Razak pushed through amendments to strengthen it, as well as a repressive counterterror law." Obama, however, warned the leaders about such American weaknesses as racial divides, income...

    Ever one to steal the spotlight, President Barack Obama upstaged iconic Israeli leader Shimon Peres at this own funeral Friday. I could somehow see myself in his story, and he could see himself in mine, said Obama, speaking on behalf of the deceased leader, who not only helped found the state of Israel, but also served stints as both president and prime minister. Obama noted that Peres reminded him of former South African president Nelson Mandela and the U.K.s Queen Elizabeth. The president hailed his friendship with the former Israeli leader, who he met with several times during his political...

For me I have made race a part of what social scientists once called the "melting pot," by which they meant that differences -- including ethnicity and race -- were all melted down into one great variegated country called America. There might be different heritages and different sub-cultures mixed into the American melting pot, but once mixed together we were all Americans. Of course, however, through the years that American melting pot has been increasingly difficult to maintain, because various leaders -- political leaders, education leaders, social leaders and simple charlatans...

In his weekly radio and internet address, Obama said hes thought a lot about parents whove had to explain the shooting deaths of 49 people at an Orlando, Florida, nightclub to their kids. He lamented that moments of silence observed after deadly mass shootings have given way to months of inexcusable silence and inaction. He called on parents who want their children to reach adulthood in a safer, more loving world to speak up for it...

And that's the power of our example. Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL's violence. Our determination to...

In an effort to reassure Americans that he's confronting the terrorist threat aggressively (his public approval rating on handling terrorism and ISIS is weak) Obama said, "for seven years, I've confronted this evolving threat each morning in my intelligence briefing."

His compulsion to advocate for the ideology he so adores is relentless. If he shills for Islam immediately following an Islamic terror attack, no problem. Perhaps he even enjoys it, like poking his finger in our eye. His sickness knows no bounds. And so, among other things, Sunday he said: ISIL does not speak for Islam. They're thugs and killers, part of a cult of death. And they account for a tiny...

    Editor's Note: This piece was coauthored by Tim Graham.After seven years of media adoration, President Obama was stunned and prickly. At a press conference in Antalya, Turkey, American reporters kept asking him why he was declaring his anti-ISIS strategy was working, when clearly it isn't. NBC's Chuck Todd found Obama "extremely defensive and almost not yet realizing that many of the reporters in that room, they're channeling the public in this case." For seven years, we've watched the White House press corps channel Obama back to Obama. But this time, on the heels of the Paris massacre, they were in...

    Brett Stephens in his article, An Unteachable President in the Wall Street Journal, makes a serious attempt to construct a rational theory to explain why the president doubles down when hes losing and why the public cant get him to change. ......

Stephens thinks its because Obama is the kind of man who believes the Cold War was won by peaceful protest, convinced that a strategy of...

    76 President Obama declared, Americas winning right now. Americas great right now in a speech to the Business Roundtable on Wednesday.
