After calling for a recount, trying to change the Electoral College vote, and smearing Trump with false intelligence information, liberals will now sit on the sidelines scowling like a third-string quarterback whose talents are more suited for the bench.

He heaped praise on former President George W Bush, saying he "could not have been more gracious to me when I came in" and said he wanted to give Mr Trump the same chance to pursue his agenda "without somebody popping off" at every turn. But Mr Obama suggested there may be limits to his silence.

It turns out that Americans keep turning in budding Muslim terrorists to the Obama administration and the administration keeps on doing nothing. For example, the alleged mastermind of the weekend pressure-cooker bombing in New York City was turned in by his own father but the Federal Bureau of Investigation failed to do much of anything about him.

Obama has deployed the term to convince the country of his rightness on immigration, Obamacare, education, national security and not voting for Mitt Romney, among other important issues to his presidency.

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to present a new proposal that would extend subsidies to low-income Americans who want to get online. The five-member commission, which is directed by three Democrats and two Republicans, intends to expand the current Lifeline program, which subsidizes income-eligible residents cellphone bills, to also encompass billing for Internet service. The plan dovetails philosophically with the FCCs recent net neutrality proposal, which regards the Internet not as a luxury but as a necessity. By elevating it to a utility, the commission can argue that low-income Americans who cant afford to pay for Internet access...

    Coca Cola is running ads that will appear on buses and signs featuring a gay couple and their adopted child. The ad shows a picture of two men holding a baby, playing with crayons. A bottle of Coca Cola is next to them. Over their heads reads, "We choose happiness ~over~ tradition. -the Van Bergen family." In the bottom right corner it reads, "#choosehappiness:" The ad implies that, though their family is not "traditional," the Van Bergens are happy. They also drink Coke:

    What accounts for hatred of the West by people who voluntarily spent years here? One of the stranger things about EastWest relations these days is the schizophrenic attraction to, and hatred of, Western culture that characterizes many foreign leaders and celebrities. Did these mixed-up folk idealistically flock to the West, and then end up bitterly disappointed that their experience did not match their dreams, in the infamous manner of Sayyid Qutb (The America That I Have Seen)? The Egyptian intellectual Qutb leveraged his subsidized residence in Colorado into an unhinged and racist screed against Western popular culture; among his targets...

    MOSCOW Thought the Soviet Union was anti-American? Try todays Russia. After a year in which furious rhetoric has been pumped across Russian airwaves, anger toward the United States is at its worst since opinion polls began tracking it. From ordinary street vendors all the way up to the Kremlin, a wave of anti-U.S. bile has swept the country, surpassing any time since the Stalin era, observers say. The indignation peaked after the assassination of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov, as conspiracy theories started to swirl just a few hours after he was killed that his death was a...
  • If Obama Loves America, Why Did He Transform It?

    eadership: "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America," candidate Barack Hussein Obama said on Oct. 30, 2008, just before his election as our 44th president. Was it just rhetoric? Many no doubt thought it was, chalking it up to boilerplate election-eve hot air. But now are we seeing some would say tragically what he meant. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is being raked over the coals for saying he doesn't really believe the president loves America, and he probably didn't do himself or the Republican any favors by saying that. Democrats...
  • Sowell: Giuliani Versus Obama

    The firestorm of denunciation of former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, for having said that he did not think Barack Obama loved America, is in one sense out of all proportion to that remark especially at a time when there are much bigger issues, including wars raging, terrorist atrocities and a nuclear Iran on the horizon. Against that background of strife and dangers on the world stage, it may seem as if Barack Obama's feelings, or Rudolph Giuliani's opinion about those feelings, should not matter so much, especially when it is hard to know with certainty how anyone feels....

    It may not be true that history is written by the victors, but in certain places, theyre making a hell of an effort to make sure its at least taught by them. In Oklahoma this week, a legislative committee took aim at Advanced Placement U.S. History classes in public schools. House Bill 1380, introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Fisher, would give give sole control of curriculum and assessment to the state, with particular regard to Advanced Placement classes offered for students to earn college credit. Fisher happens to be a member of the ominously named Black Robe Regiment, a group...

    Once you see what he is trying to accomplish, it all makes sense..... The Obama team with its foreign policy formulated by President Obama himself...Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry is not in fact befuddled by the existing world. Instead, it is intent on changing it into something quite different from what it is.... ... current U.S. foreign policy is consistent, logical, and based on four pillars of belief. 1. Readjustments in the global order are long overdue.... 2. All nations and interests act rationally if given a chance..... 3. Do abroad as we try to...

    It is time to attempt that hardest of thingsto see ourselves for who we are, to see what it is we are doing and what is being done to us. Two things prompt the thought. We have the latest news on Washingtons confrontation with Russia, and we have a newly precipitous decline in the national conversation on this crisis. In my estimation, we reach dangerous new lows in both respects. It is always difficult for the living to see themselves as suspended in history. Being up against the rock face of events, being the stuff of which events are made,...
