  • West Point Gives The Cold Shoulder To President Obama

    President Barack Obama received a chilly reception for his warnings against the alleged dangers of climate change during his address at West Point Wednesday. The cadets exhibited little warmth in applauding their Commander in Chief, which should come as little shock when considering the actual dangers these American soldiers will face upon graduating. The Commander in Chief took the time to warn of the so-called dangers of global warming, urging the cadets to “make commitments to combat climate change.” Our troops, many of whom lay down their lives each and every day to protect the individual freedoms of every American,...

    Obama’s “philosophical” speech to the 2014 graduates of West Point about a new direction for America’s foreign policy was “not a great” speech for that audience, said CNN anchor Jim Clancy on Wednesday. He said that the president did not sound like a “commander-in-chief speaking to his troops” and got an “icy reception” as a result...

    President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported. “Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported. During his speech, which the Wall Street Journal called “consistent with that of every...

    VIDEO AT LINKOkay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

The world’s most famous Buddhist returned the conservatives’ respect by offering a compliment for the AEI’s civic-minded capitalism. “After to listen [sic] yesterday and to the presenters today, I developed more respect about capitalism,” the Dalai Lama told AEI president Arthur Brooks Feb. 20 during a friendly panel discussion on “happiness, free enterprise, and human flourishing.” The president forced the Dalai Lama to pay a price for the United States’ tepid and...

One key objection of Hall’s was the following graphic showing nine of the big names in late night that he wasn’t included in.

Obama has already announced that the White House will fly the flags at half-staff though December 9 in Mandela’s honor.

    Today marks the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address where he spoke eloquently about how our great nation would endure despite the ongoing Civil War. The short speech by Lincoln would go on to become one of the greatest speeches ever in American history and previous presidents have always honored the major anniversaries of this event. But not President Obama. Instead of standing upon the national park grounds of the battle of Gettysburg on the occasion of the 150th anniversary, he is spending the day meeting with editors of the Wall Street Journal and also with Secretary of Defense...

    President Barack Obama is skipping events marking 150 years since Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. This shouldn't be a huge shock. Yes, Obama has sometimes embraced the opportunity to compare himself to Lincoln. And what a historical opportunity to miss: The nation’s first black president honoring Lincoln’s legacy in person. But parks officials point out that the last sitting president to attend a Nov. 19 event in Gettysburg was Rutherford B. Hayes. No, what’s surprising is the White House's apparent explanation for Obama’s decision to turn down an invitation offered months ago: It’s Obamacare’s fault. Specifically, the HealthCare.gov debacle.

Mr. Obama has been getting few kudos of late. His Gallup approval rating has slipped into the thirties. But in this, we can applaud his action. It is entirely fitting and proper that he should do this. First of all, consider the expense. Mr. Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg in 1863 by rail. He took Ward Hill Lamon, a U.S. Marshal, with him. Mr. Obama would have to go by caravan with with hundreds of staffers. Just think of...

Sergey Lavrov said that Snowden hasn't crossed the Russian border and insisted that Russia has nothing to do with him, his relations with U.S. justice or his travel plans. Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, he angrily lashed out at the U.S. demands for the extradition and warnings of negative consequences if Moscow fails to comply. Lavrov said that accusing Russia of "violation of U.S. laws and even some sort of...

    Protocol: President Obama declined to send a high-level delegation to Wednesday's funeral of Britain's Margaret Thatcher. It's a measure of how little he values the special relationship — and a sign of his own smallness. Back in more gracious times, vice presidents routinely attended funerals of foreign dignitaries. As such, the presence of Vice President Joe Biden — if not Obama himself — would seem fitting for as significant a U.S. ally as the late Prime Minister Thatcher, if not out of warmth of feeling, then simply to represent the U.S.' gratitude. Thatcher's uncompromising friendship with the U.S. helped to...

The popular governor of New Jersey has certainly angered many conservatives, including this humble scribe. During the crucial final days of the presidential election, Christie didn't merely embrace President Obama, he all but endorsed him. Then, during the congressional fight over the disaster-relief bill for victims of superstorm Sandy -- a bill with more pork in it than a Jimmy Dean factory -- Christie denounced...

    If it mattered, the dismissive way Obama treats the media coupled with his lack of transparency would be troubling. But it doesn't matter. Even if the president was as transparent as glass, the media would still cover up anything that might politically damage him. So the fact that Obama treats the media like the lackeys they are, is actually very amusing and all kinds of satisfying. The media's been whining about "access" for 10 days now and as a result, today, Obama pretty much laughed in their collective faces with this: “What I want to do is clear out the...

The comments, published Tuesday by The Atlantic magazine, have Obama slamming Israeli decisions to build in Judea and Samaria. “Israel doesn't know what its own best interests are,” Obama is quoted as saying by author Jeff Goldberg. “With each new settlement announcement, in Obama's view, Netanyahu is moving his country down a path toward near-total isolation,” Goldberg writes.

    Gov. Mitt Romney finishes up his overseas trip to Britain, Israel and Poland this week.

That rather bland remark—which turned out to be at least partly accurate, as ticket and transportation problems have plagued the Games—became the narrative for most major media outlets.

    Vaclav Havel is a Czech playwright, essayist, dissident and politician. He was the tenth and last President of Czechoslovakia (1989–92) and the first President of the Czech Republic (1993–2003). He has written over twenty plays and numerous non-fiction works, translated internationally. Beginning in the 1960s, Havel’s work turned to focus on the politics of Czechoslovakia. After the Prague Spring, he became increasingly active. In 1977, his involvement with the human rights manifesto Charter 77 brought him international fame as the leader of the opposition in Czechoslovakia; it also led to his imprisonment. His political activities resulted in multiple stays in...

For a long time now, for longer than we can perhaps imagine, every move he has made has been carefully calculated, calibrated, and choreographed." In the series of posts on Obama's gestures, I have...

Senior White House officials told their Israeli counterparts that Obama will demand Netanyahu completely suspend construction in the settlements, the officials said.

    Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has not been invited to meet with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during her upcoming trip to Israel, sources close to Netanyahu said Tuesday, the Jerusalem Post reported. Rice is set to with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and her dear confidante, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, but she apparently will not find time to meet with the head of the opposition, typically part of the standard protocol when diplomats visit Israel. Netanyahu's associates said they were not surprised or upset by the snub, "because her visit was intended to promote the Annapolis...

    Former US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates blasted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that his policies were ungrateful towards the US and were isolating Israel on a global level. Gates’ harsh words were said during a meeting of the National Security Council Principals Committee, Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldber reported Tuesday. Gates believes Netanyahu’s government has offered the Obama administration “nothing in return” for its generous security aid, which includes access to top-quality weapons, assistance in developing missile-defense systems and high-level intelligence sharing. The former defense secretary said that not only is Netanyahu ungrateful, but his polices were “endangering his country by...

    Wormwood and ashes; that’s what it must be for Barack Obama to run for re-election under false pretenses. Barack Obama, friend of fracking! Apologize for America? No way! Where’s my lapel flag pin? Israel? I’m her greatest supporter! Obama has come a long way from the days when he “palled around,” as Sarah Palin put it, with Rashid Khalidi, delivering a tribute so explosive that it must never see the light of day. But what does Obama really think about Israel and her enemies? Actions speak louder than words. Anne Bayefsky of Eye on the U.N. went to the trouble...

    The American Thinker ^ | 7/7/12 | Mark W. Hendrickson
    **snip** Obama has shown contempt for American friends and allies. He insulted the Czechs and Poles when he unilaterally and without warning repudiated our missile defense agreements with them. His contemptuous snubs and denigrations of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu are notorious. He recently showed contempt for the British by refusing to say he would recognize Britain's claim to sovereignty over the Falkland Islands, even if the Falklands' residents voted for British sovereignty in a plebiscite. And just as Jimmy Carter ensured the shah's departure by rejecting him, so Obama paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood's rise to power in...

    At 11:53pm last night Talking Points Memo released a statement from the Obama campaign condemning Mitt Romney for criticizing something the White House itself disavowed -- an appalling apology issued by the State Department. Eight hours later, President Obama finally got around to condemning the monsters who attacked us on our own soil and killed our fellow citizens. Yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of September 11, the Obama White House snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accepted an invitation from David Letterman, and apologized to Islamists upset over a film that mocks Islam and Mohammed -- something "artists" in America...

    No previous American president has had so strained a relationship with Israel as Barack Obama. As Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said in 2010, “Israel’s ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 ... a crisis of historic proportions.” Author and scholar Dennis Prager concurred, “Most observers, right or left, pro-Israel or anti-Israel, would agree that Israeli-American relations are the worst they have been in memory.” In the spring of 2011, David Parsons, spokesman for the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, said: “There's a traditional, special relationship between America and Israel that Obama is basically throwing out the window...

    Today when Barack Obama told Israel to move back to the 1967 borders he effectively gave half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, The holiest Christian Church in the world, The Church of the Holy Sepulchre to the Hamas-Fatah terror alliance. This is what Barack Obama wants to give to Hamas.

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was quick on the draw Thursday in voicing clear displeasure with President Barack Obama’s mideast policy speech. “Israel appreciates President Obama’s commitment to peace,” the response began, curtly. “Israel believes that for peace to endure between Israelis and Palestinians, the viability of a Palestinian state cannot come at the expense of the viability of the one and only Jewish state.” “That is why Prime Minister Netanyahu expects to hear a reaffirmation from President Obama of U.S. commitments made to Israel in 2004, which were overwhelmingly supported by both Houses of Congress.” “Among other things,” Netanyahu reminded...
