  • Obama’s Legacy at Stake in Paris Talks on Climate Accord

    WASHINGTON — At a joint news conference here Tuesday with President François Hollande of France, President Obama veered from his focus on the terrorist attacks in Paris to bring up the huge international gathering beginning in the French capital on Monday to hammer out a global response to climate change. “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children,” Mr. Obama said of the climate conference. The segue brought mockery, even castigation, from the political right, but...

    While awarding the medal of freedom to director Steven Spielberg and other celebrities, President Obama jokingly suggested that the director of movies like “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” and “Lincoln” should make one about his presidency. “Despite redefining the word ‘prolific,’ a Spielberg movie is still a Spielberg movie,” Obama said as someone’s cell phone in the room began ringing. “Somebody is calling to see if they can book him for a deal right now,” Obama joked. “They want to make pitch … ‘so there’s this really good-looking President and…'” he hinted. Obama grinned as the crowd laughed and he went on...

    It pays to have friends in high places. Al Sharpton gave himself a 71 percent raise last year after his National Action Network group drew a record $6.9 million in donations — as the controversial cleric’s association with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama lent him a newfound air of legitimacy. De Blasio’s election gave Sharpton a seat at City Hall, as the mayor treated him as an adviser and presented him at a press event next to Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after the death of Eric Garner. Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- President Obama vowed Saturday to keep United States borders open to refugees "as long as I'm president" as he visited a Malaysian humanitarian center and met migrant children, many of whom escaped violence in homelands that include Myanmar, Pakistan and Syria. Obama, in Malaysia for the 3rd ASEAN-U.S. Summit, chatted with young children at the Dignity for Children Foundation in Kuala Lumpur, asking them what they want to be when they grow up and observing their drawings. At the same time, lawmakers in Washington, D.C., on both sides of the aisle continue to...

    When was the last time President Obama tried to persuade you on something? Not as in he called you up and tried to talk you into a timeshare, but when was the last time he tried to talk the American people into supporting one of his ideas? Has he truly tried to sell us on anything? The president does occasionally give a speech in support of one of his agenda items, but they tend to be in cities and at times that coincide with Democratic fundraisers. In other words, it's lip service; literally the least he could do. The last...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Brushing off refugee worries at home, President Barack Obama crouched alongside migrant children on Saturday and declared they are the opposite of terrorists wreaking havoc from Paris to Mali. Working to put a human face on the refugee crisis, he said, "They're just like our kids." The refugees Obama encountered at a school for poor children in Malaysia were not from Syria, and unlike the flood of Syrians meeting steep resistance in the U.S., these migrants had already been cleared to resettle in America. Still, Obama said their faces could have been those of kids...

    Are you confused about how Barack Obama thinks about the War on Terror? How about Hillary Clinton? What about the editorial page of The New York Times? If you can't make sense of anything you hear or read, there is a reason for that. How they really think is rarely ever made explicit and never debated or publicly discussed. Until now. Here are ten bad ideas implicit in most leftwing commentary on this topic. 1. If there are no boots on the ground, you're not really at war.

    In denouncing Republicans as "scared of widows and orphans," and castigating those who prefer Christian refugees to Muslims coming to America, Barack Obama has come off as petulant and unpresidential. Clearly, he is upset. And with good reason. He grossly, transparently underestimated the ability of ISIS, the "JV" team, to strike outside the caliphate into the heart of the West, and has egg all over his face. More critically, the liberal world order he has been preaching and predicting is receding before our eyes. Suddenly, his rhetoric is discordantly out of touch with reality. And, for his time on the...

    "You're all suckers." That has to be what Barack Obama is thinking as the country falls for his head-fake. Let's recap. George W. Bush's surge reduced the Islamic State's precursor, al-Qaida in Iraq, to a paltry 700 members, according to CIA Director John Brennan. Its membership has grown by something close to 4,000 percent. As it metastasized, Obama yawned, calling it the "JV team." When Syrian President Bashar al-Assad violated Obama's "red line," Obama yawned again, and the refugee crisis was born. By August 2014, Obama was grudgingly conceding he needed a new counterterrorism strategy. One tactic he ruled out:...

    The battle of the refugees continues in Washington, DC. With 33 state governors (at the time of this writing) refusing to take in any additional refugees, Pres__ent Obama (D-ISIS) has been absolutely flipping his wig, petulantly calling his opponents names while attempting to berate the governors into reversing their decisions. The radical Left has not been negligent to back him up, either. The past couple of days have seen them advance a number of arguments against rejection of the refugees—ranging from the simply wrong to the outright laughable. I’d like to address some of these arguments below. The most sophisticated...

I believe we can address the disparities in the application of criminal justice, from arrest rates to sentencing to incarceration.

As NBC News recalled, His last public appearance as information minister was on April 8, 2003, the day before the fall of Baghdad, when he said that the Americans are going to surrender or be burned in their tanks. They will surrender, it is they who will surrender. Baghdad Bob now seems to be the model for the Obama White...

Several of the invitations to the event, which is part of the pope's three-city tour of America September 22-27, were offered by Vivian Taylor. Taylor, 30, considers himself transgender, which means he identifies as a sex different from his biology. Taylor has male anatomy but dresses and presents himself as female. Until March of this year he was the Executive Director of Integrity USA, a homosexual and transgender activist wing...

Obama was born in Hawaii and is a Christian. Overall, when asked "where was Obama born, as far as you know?" 80% of adults say they believe Obama was born in the United States, while 20% said that he was born outside the country. And just 9% of those who think he was born elsewhere believe there is solid evidence of that; the other 11% say it is just their suspicion.Misperceptions about...

After the kids had finished performing a number of dances, POTUS joined in. "I've been practicing," Obama said.

Asked whether they thought Obama is a Christian or Muslim or if they were unsure, 32 percent said they were unsure. Fourteen percent said he was a Christian. Many right-leaning voters have been deeply skeptical about Obama's faith since before he became president. The topic arose again prominently in 2012, when Obama faced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, in the general election. Obama rarely invokes his own faith in speeches and...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The September vote on the Iran nuclear deal is billed as a titanic standoff between President Barack Obama and Congress. Yet even if lawmakers reject the agreement, it's not game-over for the White House. A congressional vote of disapproval would not prevent Obama from acting on his own to start putting the accord in place. While he probably would take some heavy criticism, this course would let him add the foreign policy breakthrough to his second-term list of accomplishments.

Yet for too long, too many of our fellow citizens were denied that right, simply because of the color of their skin. Fifty years ago this week, President Lyndon Johnson signed a law to change that. The Voting Rights Act broke down legal barriers that stood between millions of African Americans and their constitutional right to cast ballot. It was, and still is, one of the greatest victories in our countrys struggle for civil rights.

So it's strange that last week Hillary Clinton declared war on capital with her plan to nearly double the capital gains rate for investments held less than six years. The capital gains tax rate fell to 15 percent in the George W. Bush years, was raised 23.8 percent under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton...

It would be comforting to believe that the last of these developments mitigates the first two that with an agreement in place, Irans struggle to bring about Americas demise will begin at least to...

    Obamacare! The War on Drugs! A War on Poverty! Prohibition! The idea that government will bring social progress isn't new. Europe's monarchs believed in big government long before there was a Soviet Union or a welfare state. Eighteenth-century philosopher Voltaire praised "enlightened" monarchs like Prussia's Frederick the Great. Since the nineteenth century, so-called "progressives" have wanted government to get ever larger. They got their wish. The results were not so good for people. Today pundits and protesters moan about fiscal "austerity" in nations like Greece. But if austerity means cuts in government, there hasn't been much of it. Sure, Greece...

    The Obama administration on Friday asked a federal appeals court to lift an order blocking the presidents executive actions on immigration. A three-judge panel from the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals heard arguments from lawyers representing the Justice Department and Texas in a case challenging Obamas programs, which could shield millions of immigrants from deportation. The judges did not rule immediately on the administrations request. With just 18 months left in Obamas presidency, the court battle has put his programs in peril. No matter how the court rules, the legal battle could stretch into next year. Whichever side loses...

    ON JULY 1, President Obama announced the formal resumption of diplomatic relations with Cuba, asserting confidently that "American engagement ... is the best way to advance our interests and support for democracy and human rights." On July 5, the Communist regime in Havana delivered its customary response. It arrested more than 80 democratic dissidents, including at least 60 members of Ladies in White, a peaceful group of brave women who march weekly in support of husbands, fathers, and other relatives imprisoned in the Castros' jails. Many of those detained were hurt, some severely. One prominent human-rights activist, Antonio Rodiles, was...
  • Massive Government Overreach: Obamas AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing) Rule Is Out

    Today, HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced the finalization of the Obama administrations Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule. A front-page article pre-emptively defending the move appears in todays Washington Post. The final rule is 377 pages, vastly longer than the preliminary version of the rule promulgated in 2013. AFFH is easily one of President Obamas most radical initiatives, on a par with Obamacare in its transformative potential. In effect, AFFH gives the federal government a lever to re-engineer nearly every American neighborhoodimposing a preferred racial and ethnic composition, densifying housing, transportation, and business development in suburb and city alike, and weakening...

    If you have not realized it, outrage is about the only tool left in the Democrats' political arsenal. After years of the left telling Americans there is nothing beyond this world, there is no higher and best use of one's soul because it does not exist, and the worms will start eating us the day after we die, Americans are rather tapped out of caring about much of anything. So rage it is, and the latest rage is about the Confederate battle flag. To hear commentary in popular culture, one might be forgiven for thinking the Confederate battle flag shot...

    RUSH: Well, there's no way to spin this, folks. It's just a disaster. I think many of us are witnessing now the complete corruption of Washington, DC, meaning the objective has been to corrupt the government and success appears to be, at this moment in time, in hand. As it was pointed out to me earlier today, the left has the government that they've always wanted. We have an authoritarian megalomaniac ruling like a monarch. The opposition bends over and, according to the high court, the Supreme Court, words, laws, really have no meaning. It's whatever the popular interpretation of...

    Kitty Werthmann lived in Austria when Hitler marched his troops in and took over. She sees parallels between growing up in Austria and living in America for the last seven years. Those who forget or dont learn history are doomed to repeat it. Hitler came to power in the depth of the depression, Obama came to power, in part, as the result of a deep recession. In addition, Hitler socialized health care, he went one step further than Obama, it was free for everyone in Germany. Hitler managed to confiscate virtually every gun in Germany, Obama would if...

    Lyndon Johnson used to say that some of his colleagues were so politically inept they couldn't find their posteriors -- actually, he used a coarser word -- with both hands. Last week Barack Obama showed that, as a legislative strategist, he belongs in that category. It's a given that he can't achieve most of his legislative goals with Republican majorities in both houses of Congress. But on trade promotion authority -- legislation to require up-or-down approval without amendments of trade agreements -- he has fumbled even though, as demonstrated on roll calls, his position is supported by a supermajority in...

    We've known for a long time that Barrack Obama is clueless when it comes to dealing with what's left of Iraq. Now we also know he's still planless. Our president was in Europe earlier this week at a "Group of Seven" conference, where he met with leaders of the world's seven most industrialized economies. During his concluding remarks he made news when he said his top security advisers were still working on a plan for how to train Iraq defense forces to fight ISIS. "We don't yet have a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the...

    resident Obama took heat Monday for admitting he doesn't yet have a "complete strategy" in hand for training Iraqis to fight the Islamic State -- months into the coordinated campaign to defeat the deadly terrorist network. "When a finalized plan is presented to me by the Pentagon, then I will share it with the American people," Obama said, adding, "We don't yet have a complete strategy." House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in a statement: "It is no surprise this administration does not have a 'complete strategy' for training Iraqis to fight ISIS. What is surprising is that...

    President Obamas daughter Malia has won her first marriage offer, and boy is he a keeper! Malia, who will be 17 on July 4, received a serious matrimony proposal from a Kenyan lawyer whos willing to put all his wealth on the table to win her hand. Felix Kiprono reportedly told the scandal-loving Kenyan tabloid The Nairobian hes willing to pay the president 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats as a dowry for Malia. I got interested in her in 2008, when Malia was 10 years old, Kipromo told the newspaper. As a matter of fact, I havent dated...
