  • Of Course! New report says Obama’s DACA program handed protections to THOUSANDS of criminal aliens

    Immigration Deformed: When President Obama told supporters ahead of his 2012 reelection that he didn’t have the authority as head of the Executive Branch to simply ‘legalize’ everyone who was in our country illegally, he was spot-on. Presidents can’t make law on their own. The closest thing they can come to it is issuing an executive order, but as we’ve seen in the era of the Trump presidency, even those are subject to constitutional and judicial oversight. So when Obama issued an EO ‘legalizing’ tens of thousands of illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as children under the Deferred Action...
  • Trump: Obama Allowed Russian Encroachment on Crimea–“I Would Not Have Allowed It”

    In his NATO news conference today, President Trump held President Obama responsible for permitting Russia to encroach on Crimea, and said: “Long before I got here, President Obama allowed that to happen. That was on his watch, not on my watch. People like to say, oh, Crimea but the fact is they built bridges to Crimea; they just opened a big bridge that was started years ago, they built I think a submarine port, substantially added billions of dollars. “So, that was on Barack Obama’s watch. That was not on Trump’s watch. Would I have allowed it to happen? No,...
  • DNC CHAIR: OBAMA IS AMERICA’S ‘REAL PRESIDENT’ — NOT TRUMP

    Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez introduced former President Barack Obama as America’s “real president” at a DNC fundraiser Thursday night. “Let’s give it up for the real president of the United States,” Perez said at Thursday’s fundraiser, Politico reported. Obama reportedly then told the crowd of Democratic donors that they are “right to be concerned” about Trump’s presidency. Perez’s false descriptor for Obama is just the latest instance of prominent Democrats abandoning political norms in order to undermine President Trump. Obama has sharply broken with precedent by repeatedly attacking Trump. When Obama left office, the existing standard was...
  • To Promote Diversity, FAA Favors Air Traffic Control Applicants Bad at Science and Unemployed

    As a small-plane pilot, I keep up on aviation news, subscribing to multiple magazines, websites and podcasts devoted to flying. So it is a measure of just how hard the Obama admin worked to hide this outrageous story from the public that I had never heard about it until Tucker Carlson brought it to light this evening. Turns out, diversity activists during the Obama era decided that there wasn’t enough diversity among air traffic controllers. So, without a vote, the Obama FAA scrapped its merit-based rules and replaced them with a system contrived to benefit “diverse” applicants. As Tucker explained...
  • FBI lovers' latest text messages: Obama 'wants to know everything'

    Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing." The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers reviewed by Fox News. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016, about prepping Comey because "potus wants to know everything we're doing." According to a newly released...
  • Stark contrast: Trump-Obama Thanksgiving proclamations

    World Net Daily ^ | 11/18/2017 | Joseph Farah
    WASHINGTON – President Trump’s first Thanksgiving Day Proclamation released Friday stands in stark contrast to eight issued by his predecessor Barack Obama from 2009 to 2016. Trump invoked God six times in his first proclamation, emphasizing an American tradition whose inspiration comes from the Bible. The word “thanksgiving” is found 29 times in the King James Bible – always with the “thanks” directed to the Almighty Creator. By contrast, Obama’s eight annual separate proclamations during his years in office referenced God a total of five times, excluding quotes he referenced from George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

    Since last summer, we’ve witnessed a firestorm of nonstop media coverage about alleged Russian meddling in our election process. Questions arose regarding targets of Russian hacking and communications. Certain outlets (incorrectly) reported that Russia went so far as to hack voting machines and/or paper ballots in battleground states. A liberal shibboleth no less impressive than Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe has been quoted by the Washington Post as stating Trump’s presidency has been “rendered illegitimate by treasonous or otherwise unlawful manipulation.” While I completely disagree with Prof. Tribe’s assertions on presidential legitimacy, I think his mention of “treasonous or otherwise unlawful...

    Appearing Monday evening on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” President Obama said: “I think the President-Elect may say one thing and do another once he’s here because the truth of the matter is it’s a big, complicated world and it doesn’t matter how smart you are, you have to have the best information possible to make the best decisions possible and my experience with our intelligence agencies is, they are not perfect, they’d be the first to acknowledge that, but they are full of extraordinarily hard working, patriotic, and knowledgeable experts and if you’re not getting their perspective – their...

Here's the latest: • Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn is the king's appointed successor • Thousands gathered at the hospital, shouting "Long live the king!" • Civil servants are ordered to wear black clothes for one year in mourning from Friday • US President Obama described the king as a man of "grace and warmth" The announcement came in a statement from the Royal Palace read on state TV Thursday, and followed a days-long outpouring of support since the king...

    Although President Obama claimed last week that ISIS has been "contained," the inconvenient truth is this: The number of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria has more than doubled since last year to at least 27,000, a report by an intelligence consultancy said on Dec. 8, highlighting the global dimension of the conflict. The figures, compiled by the Soufan Group, indicate that efforts by countries around the world to stem the flow of foreign fighters to Iraq and Syria and blunt the appeal of violent organizations such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) appear to have...

    [VIDEO] That's it. No more "Christmas in Washington." After 33 year years and 5 administrations, the live Christmas concert has been canceled: After last year’s show, hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, TNT announced that it would no longer broadcast the Christmas special, ending a 15-year partnership with veteran producer George Stevens Jr. and his son, Michael. The Stevenses, who had just been ousted as the producers of the Kennedy Center Honors gala, said they were in search of a new broadcast partner. But a new network sponsor was never found, and according to the Stevens Co., the 2014 broadcast...

    I think CBS stands for Caress Barack’s Scrotum. Saturday’s puff piece based on the President’s Hawaii vacation pool report asks the question “why Obama loves golf, basketball and all things athletic” without actually answering it. In fact, Obama’s love of “things athletic” would make him a glutton for punishment, because he’s not very good at any of those things.

    US President Barack Obama stressed multilateralism over militarism in what was billed as a major foreign policy address an a rebuttal to an ever-louder chorus of criticism, mostly by Republicans and neo-conservatives, that his tenure has been marked by weakness and retreat. Speaking on Wednesday at the graduation ceremonies of the US Military Academy at West Point, New York - the same forum at which his predecessor, George W Bush, set forth his doctrine of military pre-emption nine months before invading Iraq - Obama insisted that the United States remains the world's "indispensable nation" but emphasized that military force should...

    MOSCOW, March 29, /ITAR-TASS/. In a telephone conversation with his US counterpart Barack Obama Russian President Vladimir Putin drew attention to the continuing rampage by extremists in Ukraine, who are committing acts of intimidation against civilians, bodies of power, and law enforcers in different parts of Ukraine and in Kiev and do so with impunity, the Kremlin’s press-service has said. In this context the Russian leader suggested considering likely steps by the international community to help stabilize the situation in Ukraine. It was agreed that Russian and US foreign ministers would discuss specific parameters of such joint work in the...

    There are some things that just beg to be written about and discussed. Chuck Schumer's idea of compromise on immigration reform is shouting loudly from the rooftops for that recognition.If you have read Political Realities for any length of time, you will know I am openly derisive of the Democrats when they start talking about how conservatives need to compromise. Their past actions have shown me how untrustworthy they are. Their idea of compromise is usually conservatives giving over everything we believe in and they give over nothing. Scoff all you want, but that's how it usually works with them....

    President Obama and his administration would like us to believe that the scandal(s) surrounding the IRS are nothing more than a fabricated witch hunt designed to cause trouble for an administration distrusted by conservatives and Fox News. He said there wasn't a "smidgen of corruption" present in the IRS' targeting of conservative groups. Yes, that's what he really said to Bill O'Reilly. He as much as blamed the scandal on the reporting done by Fox News. He claims the investigation into the matter found the IRS and the agents involved did nothing wrong in their targeting of 501(c)(4) groups. What...

    If there is one thing the Obama administration can be depended on to do, it is to do their own thing. They have a record of ignoring laws that have been passed by Congress and changing others to suit their needs and agenda. So it is with our immigration law. They have already stated they would not deport certain illegal immigrants, saying their only crime was to be brought to America when they were children. That could be debatable, given the fact that many of them have had the opportunity to do the right thing, yet chose to live here...

    If there is one thing our politicians should have learned by now, it is this. No matter what law is passed, or what its intentions are, there is always the law of consequences, unintended or not. Every law that is placed on the federal register has consequences for the American people and the country in which they live. Every rule or regulation that is written as a result of those laws is loaded with consequences. That is a fact that can not be denied. Thus it is also with ObamaCare. Many of us have said all along that ObamaCare would...

    Last night's interview of President Obama by Bill O'Reilly stuck out to me for one main reason. Obama refused to answer the questions and lied through his teeth in the process. He refused to acknowledge there was a "smidgen" of corruption present in the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. He refused to acknowledge any failure in Benghazi. He refused to admit what was really happening with the ObamaCare website. He went so far as to say it was finally working the way it was supposed to work. That one lie is the easiest to prove. Fox News - Thousands...
