    resident Obama has ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff at the White House and federal buildings across the country to honor the victims of last week's shooting rampage in Chattanooga, Tenn., after facing pressure from lawmakers and others. In a proclamation issued early Tuesday afternoon, Obama said of the Chattanooga victims, "We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives. We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try and do us harm: We...

    WASHINGTON — The White House provided no explanation Monday amid questions over why the president had not ordered flags across the nation to half-staff in the wake of a Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting that killed five servicemembers. Spokesman Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama offered condolences last week and may speak to veterans at VFW conference Tuesday about the shooting, but he had no further comment. Obama has issued presidential proclamations that lowered flags at federal facilities and military bases after many mass shootings, including attacks at the Washington Navy Yard, Fort Hood in Texas, and Sandy Hook elementary in Connecticut....

    Chattanooga aftermath: Why do major television networks continue to get away with mollycoddling murdering radical terrorists in the very wake of their evil carnage? Within four days of the attack that claimed the lives of four US Marines and a Navy sailors slaughtered in the Chattanooga shooting spree, ABC is portraying poor Mohammod Abdulazeez—not as a radical Islamic terrorist—but as a “disturbed, suicidal young man using drugs, preparing for bankruptcy and facing an appearance in criminal court”. While their loved ones are in tearful mourning, the mainstream media’s crying killer Abdulazeez a river and getting über maudlin with the violins....

If you’ve spent any time in Washington, you know that the desire to help others is optional, and for members of Congress, it’s frowned upon.”

    White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett was one of the mobilizing forces behind the decision to light up the White House with the colors of the gay pride movement to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. According to the Washington Post, Jarrett worked with gay rights organizations to pay for the display to avoid using taxpayer money. The idea came from one of Jarrett’s aides who was also the LGBT liaison in the White House.

    The Supreme Court had an opportunity, with its ruling in King v. Burwell, to determine whether the United States is a nation of laws or of men. Today, in a 6-3 decision, the Court ruled that we have devolved into the latter. Although the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) clearly states that the government may issue subsidies only through insurance exchanges established by the states, Obama administration bureaucrats unilaterally rewrote that part of the law so that the IRS could dispense such premium assistance through “marketplaces” created by the federal government. The plaintiffs in...

    President Barack Obama is used to hecklers stopping him during speeches -- but he draws the line when the audience interrupts him in his own house. As Obama was speaking at a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month on Wednesday, an accented voice rang out from the crowd. Obama wasn't amused. "Shame on you," he told his heckler, who was protesting deportations under the Obama administration. Obama responded, "Listen you're in my house ... it's not respectful." The interruption persisted, however, and Obama asked for the heckler to be removed from the East Room. "As a general rule I...

Listen, you’re in my house,” Obama told the person. “You’re not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this,” Obama said. But the heckler would not let up, despite Obama’s pleas, boos from the crowd and chants of “Obama! Obama!” The president became visibly irritated,...

If the Senate approves fast-track or trade promotion authority (TPA), it would then be sent to Obama’s desk to become law. Fast-track authority would allow Obama to send trade deals to Congress for up-or-down votes. The White House wants the authority to conclude negotiations on a sweeping trans-Pacific trade deal. Thirteen Democrats backed fast-track in Tuesday’s vote, handing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a major legislative victory....

    The Secret Service is adding a second layer of steel spikes to the top of the White House fence to keep would-be intruders at bay, according to a proposal submitted to the National Capitol Planning Commission. The ˝-inch long steel “pencil point” spikes will be snapped into place at the top of the fence and protrude outward, according to a diagram included in the proposal submitted for the Secret Service by that National Park Service. The spikes will be added to the fence along the north and south sides of the White House grounds. […] The Secret Service has been...

    Hold your breath forever waiting for Obama’s Justice Department to take action or even make mention of this hate group urging to kill white babies. Can you fathom what would happen if the colors were reversed here?It’s easy to call these hateful ignoramus’ but I think the important factor here is that they’ve become emboldened by the fact that their racist and violent actions and words in the past have been met with no resistance from this White House. Our guy Joe Newby has the story: In a video posted at Breitbart.com on Tuesday, a New Black Panther Leader identified...

    (CNSNews.com) – White House press secretary Josh Earnest acknowledged Tuesday that the U.S. cannot proscribe how Iran chooses to spend the money it will get as sanctions are eased under a proposed nuclear deal. But he said it was “common sense” to expect that the regime would use it to improve the ailing economy, rather than to step up funding for terrorism or destabilizing activities in the region. Earnest said what had brought the Iranians to the negotiating table in the first place was a desire to ease the effects of sanctions imposed by the international community over the nuclear...

    May 4, 2015 By Staff Writer Abbott Cruz ‘Operation Jade Helm 15’ involves special operations units of the U.S. military working in conjunction with government and law enforcement agencies in several southwestern states. The operation has raised eyebrows across the country. Is it a test run for implementing ‘martial law’ in selected cities identified as “hostile” by the government? Conspiracy theorists think so. Or is it simply a run-of-the-mill training mission? Nobody seems to have access to enough detailed knowledge about the exercise one way or the other. Therefore, speculation has run wild. Many claim the exercise will be a...

Obama added: "Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker ... who will finally get that red rose?" On the Democratic side, Obama observed that...

    http://youtu.be/AWpDxX5uDuU Twitter started buzzing just before the President spoke at tonight's White House Correspondents Dinner, claiming that CNN was telling their viewers who wanted the news, particularly about the rioting in Baltimore, that they could totally get that news.

I mean you know, you have to make a decision, what are you gonna do with this two hours of time. And we, you know, CNN made it's decisions, and is sticking to it's plan and so forth," says...

    You might think that the White House would have something of substance to say about the repeated violations of a memorandum of understanding between the administration and the Clinton Foundation that prohibited it from accepting donations from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. Wrong! When pressed by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl on Friday about whether the White House was concerned by the Clinton FoundationÂ’s various indiscretions, or even its failure to disclose foreign donations including those from Uranium One, White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest seemed to suggest that they were not (h/t Washington...
