    Times of Israel ^ | 4/22/16 | Sara Miller
    Barack Obama sent out his final Passover greeting as US president on Friday, recalling his 2009 tradition-making seder the first ever at the White House, and drawing a parallel between the story of the Israelites Exodus from Egypt and the battle for civil rights across the globe. Mah nishtana halailah hazeh?, the president wrote, quoting the Four Questions asked during the Jewish service on the first night of Passover. The Hebrew phrase means: Why is this night different from all other nights? The president continued: For Michelle and me, this Passover is different from all other Passovers because it...

    "ISIL poses a threat to the entire civilized world," President Obama said in his Saturday radio address, as he explained what he's doing to counter the threat posed by radical Islamic extremism -- a phrase he refuses to use. In addition to waging war and diplomacy, Obama said Americans, for their own good, must welcome Muslims into their midst: "As we move forward in this fight, we have to wield another weapon alongside our airstrikes, our military, our counterterrorism work, and our diplomacy. And that's the power of our example. Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL's violence. Our determination to...

    If you seek to understand Barack Obama and his views, the best place to go is his speeches. But you have to read them in their entirety, not rely on hearing them or on the media's summary of them. When you do, you realize how often what Obama says is morally and intellectually confused and even untrue. The most recent example was his speech last week at a mosque in Baltimore. In addition to reassuring Muslim Americans that they are as American as Americans of every other faith -- President Obama spoke a lot of nonsense, some of it dangerous....

    For the first time during his seven years in office, President Obama visited a mosque on Wednesday to share a message of 'religious tolerance and unity.' "We're one American family, and when any part of our family starts to feel second class or separate or targeted, it tears at the very fabric of our nation," the president said. Muslims, he continued, are "some of the most resilient and patriotic Americans you'll ever meet." He even spoke about how "Islam has always been part of America." "Islam has always been part of America," he said, detailing the beginnings of the...

You can read the entire transcript here, but there were a few highlights: "And since 9/11, but more recently, since the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, you've seen too often people conflating the horrific acts of terrorism with the beliefs of an entire faith. And of course, recently, we've heard inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim Americans that has no place in our country." So let's start with this fact: For more...

    President Barack Obama spoke about the nature of fear and Christ's power over death before a large annual faith-based gathering in Washington, DC. At the National Prayer Breakfast held Thursday morning in the Nation's Capital, President Obama gave a speech based off of 2nd Timothy 1:7, which reads "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." "Fear does funny things. Fear can lead us to lash out against those who are different or lead us to try to get some 'sinister other' under control," said Obama. "Alternatively,...

    President Obama addressed an anxious nation last night in an instantly-forgettable, perfunctory speech that was largely devoid of news and announced no meaningful changes to US policies or military strategy. 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." The public learned several years ago that this president skips his in-person briefings far more frequently than his predecessor, though his staff insists that he reads through the written version...

    During Sunday's address to the nation, President Obama went to bat for Islam, as he so often does. It matters not when, where, or how he defends it. 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...

    President Barack Obama tried to reassure the American people from the Oval Office on Sunday evening that he takes the threat of terrorism seriously: "For seven years, I've confronted this evolving threat each morning in my intelligence briefing." However, as the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) has shown, Obama skips more than half of his daily intelligence briefings. The data comes from the White House itself, which has admitted Obama's absence but has said he reads the material on his iPad.

    When the President of the United States asks the television networks to set aside time for him to broadcast a speech from the Oval Office, we can usually expect that he has something new to say. But President Obama's speech Sunday night was just a rehash of what he has been saying all along, trying to justify policies that have repeatedly turned out disastrously for America and our allies. This was not a speech about how the Obama administration is going to do anything differently in the future. It was a speech about how Obama's policies were right all along....

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...

    The intent of Obamacare is clear, and the law doesnt need fixing, President Obama told a news conference in Germany on Monday. There is no reason why the existing exchanges should be overturned through a court case, he insisted, just days before the Supreme Court is expected to rule on a case that could eliminate subsidies for people who got their insurance through the federal exchange. Obama, a former constitutional law professor, said laws should be interpreted based on their intent: And under well-established statutory interpretation approaches that have been repeatedly employed, not just by liberal Democratic judges, but by...

    President Obamas assertion in his commencement address to cadets at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that the rise of ISIS in Syria and Boko Haram in Nigeria, and the brutality of both, is somehow linked to climate change shows just how dangerously detached from reality U.S. foreign policy has become. For those who wondered why upwards of two hundred thousand have died in Syria, Boko Haram abducts Christian schoolgirls, and ISIS beheads and burns people alive in its reign of terror, the president placed a major part of the blame on fossil fuels and your SUV. I understand climate change...

    President Obama in a speech on Wednesday cast climate change as a growing national security threat, accusing Republican skeptics of harming military readiness by denying its effects. Obama argued in his address to graduates at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that rising sea levels and higher global temperatures endanger military bases and could force personnel to respond to conflicts around the world that are fueled by their effects. Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country, Obama told new...

    "We the people, in order to form a more perfect union." Two hundred and twenty one years ago, in a hall that still stands across the street, a group of men gathered and, with these simple words, launched America's improbable experiment in democracy. Farmers and scholars; statesmen and patriots who had traveled across an ocean to escape tyranny and persecution finally made real their declaration of independence at a Philadelphia convention that lasted through the spring of 1787. The document they produced was eventually signed but ultimately unfinished. It was stained by this nation's original sin of slavery, a question...

    The Obama administration snuck in two new climate change-related programs when it rolled out a major new study on the nation's challenged energy system. The first installment of a major four-part energy analysis, dubbed the Quadrennial Energy Review, was issued Tuesday morning after several months of persistent delays. Included with the 350-page review, which focused on the nation's energy infrastructure hurdles, were two new executive actions: one addressing climate change resilience, and another for clean energy improvements in rural America. The administration hinted that the new initiatives may be part of a speech the president plans to deliver Wednesday in...
