    Barack Obama could soon hear his name being uttered as part of Angelenos’ driving directions, with a Los Angeles city councilman proposing to name a street after him. Obama Boulevard could prove a relatively more innocuous role for the 44th president’s name than “Obamajam” — the oft-used term to refer to the anticipated congestion that accompanied his frequent fundraising trips to the Los Angeles area. City Council President Herb Wesson wants to rename a 3.4-mile segment of Rodeo Road, between Jefferson Boulevard and Arlington Avenue, after Obama because it would be a fitting addition to what is known in his...

    Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson Jr. is out with his new book, On the Brink, where he details his version of events that occurred on Wall Street and Washington D.C.during the financial crisis while he was Treasury Secretary. All that you really need to know about this fairy tale can be found in the front of the book in what is labeled as "Author's Notes". In this preface, Paulson tells us that he doesn't take notes and doesn't use email and his staff was frustrated because he didn't send out memos, but fortunately, he tells us, he has a very...

    Secret tapes of former IRA members that could implicate Gerry Adams, the Sinn Fein president, in dozens of murders in the 1970s have been demanded by American prosecutors acting on behalf of the British authorities. A subpoena has been received by Boston College for the tapes of interviews with Brendan Hughes and Dolours Price, both one-time senior IRA figures, carried out by researchers for an oral history project. Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams Hughes, a convicted IRA man who was once arrested with Mr Adams, died in 2008. A book “Voices from the Grave” by Ed Moloney, based on the...

    What will my son be taught about Barack Obama? At two years old, he won’t remember the Obama years, but he’s most definitely going to be taught about them outside the home one day. Liberal bias in schools is well known, and one can only imagine just how slanted curricula will be about the 44th president.

    After today's Morning Joe played a montage various Trump administration members praising the president, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough savaged them as "robots" and "stooges" who sounded like people in countries like North Korea and Iran. Of course, President Obama didn't need people in his administration to praise him. He had the liberal media doing that for him, free of charge. Check out, courtesy of our friends at NewsBusters, this assemblage of the MSM drooling over Obama. View the video here.

    Did former President Obama try to co-opt media coverage of President Donald Trump's international trip by making Italy his first stop in an all-expenses paid trip around the world? Isn't this the first time that a former president traveled a route nearly parallel with that of the new President? Obama departed for Italy on Friday, one day before the People's President embarked for Saudi Arabia. The Obama private jet was encircled by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing fighter jets en route to Italy for his five day stay at the $15,000 a night Borgo Finocchieto, thirteenth century restored village, owned by...

    Why should President Trump be the only one to have a Special Prosecutor? A few respectful thoughts on Special Prosecutors. First of all, now that we know we can have Special Prosecutors without there being any meaningful evidence of a crime, or in fact any evidence at all of a crime besides gossip and endless political campaigning, let’s have a Special Prosecutor for Maxine Waters. She’s the screaming voice of the most anti-Trump, shrillest slice of the Democrat party. She’s been a civil servant all of her life, earning a modest wage. Somehow, she has a $4.5 million dollar home...

    A high school student who stabbed a fellow pupil in the neck with a pencil can't be expelled under her school district's weapons policy, a Commonwealth Court panel has ruled. In fact, Judge Patricia A. McCullough wrote in the state court's opinion, every Pennsylvania classroom would be empty if her court agreed with the Pittsburgh Public School District that a sharpened pencil is a prohibited weapon. The case revolves around what happened between the 10th grader and another student at the Barack Obama International Academy on May 9, 2016.

The flyers depict a racist caricature of a black man holding a knife and bear the words “Around blacks ... never relax.” UT student Kim Nguyen said she found a flyer on an yellow emergency call machine near the Littlefield Fountain.

    The shutdown showdown seems like a wild train ride and the political aftermath is only just picking up steam. I think it is important to be clear about what the faithful few are actually fighting for (and against) during the shutdown showdown. Let me reset the framework in the simplest possible terms, so that we don’t forget the essentials. Our federal government, created by the States in 1787, was designed to be a limited and defined federal government. Not my words, but the words of the people who created it - easily researchable and verifiable. James Madison (called the Father...

    An alleged refusal by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAEDI) to allow the FBI's special attaché for international relations to interview former President Barack Obama in French Polynesia is getting internet coverage but virtually no narrative in America's media. The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Joseph Napier interdicted the fishing vessel "Lady Michelle" in international waters near St. Vincent Island by zapping its electronic navigation system and rendering it "dead in the water." Four smugglers and contraband including approximately $125 million US dollars in seized cocaine were offloaded into American custody in San Juan, Puerto Rico as DEA and other...

    Surprising consensus on today's Morning Joe that Barack Obama blew it bigly in Syria by punting on his redline. Even Obama fan Mike Barnicle admitted, "Syria was a serious mistake that the Obama administration made." Foreign policy honcho Richard Haass said "history's going to be rough on this. This is going to be the defining moment for the Obama presidency." It wasn't just the panel that trashed Obama's mishandling of Syria. Joe Scarborough noted that not only did leading Dems like John Kerry and Hillary quickly come out in support of Trump's strikes, but that Dems were saying things that...
