    US President Barack Obama has signed into law an initiative aimed at bringing electricity to 50 million people in sub-Saharan Africa by 2020. The Electrify Africa Act of 2015 will give legal backing to Mr Obama's flagship Power Africa scheme, which is trying to improve access to electricity through public-private partnerships. It took nearly two years to be passed in both houses of the US Congress. About two-thirds of people in Africa do not have access to reliable power....

    Rev up Air Force One, it's fundraising time again, along with symbolic moments and scenic views. In 48 hours President Obama departs the nation's capital for points west and an extended stay. Here's what's on the big travel agenda, beginning Wednesday: "Nine years after he announced his candidacy for president, the President will return to the place where his political career began by traveling to Springfield, Illinois. Now in the final year of his second term, the President looks forward to addressing the Illinois General Assembly about what we can do, together, to build better politics," the White House advises....

    The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.” It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.” The Pentagon defines

    What a difference a year makes in Syria. And the introduction of massive Russian airpower. Last February, President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and its Shiite auxiliaries mounted a large-scale attempt to encircle Aleppo, the northern city divided between regime and rebels since 2012 and battered by the dictator’s barrel bombs. Islamist and non-Islamist mainstream rebels — to the surprise of those who have derided their performance, let alone their existence — repelled the offensive at the time. What followed was a string of rebel advances across the country, which weakened Assad so much that they triggered Moscow’s direct intervention in September,...
  • White House defends $1.7B payment to Iran, denies it was ‘ransom’ for prisoners

    The White House denied Tuesday that the U.S. paid Iran $1.7 billion as ransom to gain the release of American prisoners, saying the payment settled a long-running claim by Tehran over military equipment. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the payment last weekend was “a very good deal for taxpayers” because Iran was actually seeking interest payments of up to $8 billion for the decades-old claim. “Our exposure when it came to paying interest could have been much higher,” Mr. Earnest said. A spokeswoman for Speaker Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, criticized the administration for paying “ransom” to gain the...

    The Obama administration confirmed late Sunday it had delayed the imposition of new ballistic missile sanctions on Iran to ensure the Islamic Republic released five imprisoned Americans under a secret agreement reached on the sidelines of the nuclear negotiations, according to senior administration officials. The officials confirmed that "secret" talks between U.S. and Iranian officials had been taking place for the past 14 months. In exchange for the release of the five Americans--including a Washington Post reporter and Christian pastor--the Obama administration pardoned or dropped charges on 21 Iranians convicted of violating U.S. sanctions, including seven who had been detained...

    New details about Russian president Vladimir Putin’s latest military plans. Will those plans destabilize one of the United States’ most important military alliances? Putin appears to be flexing his muscle and his missiles. In a briefing with the Russian news media, Putin’s defense minister boldly declares his military will create three new divisions on Russia’s western flank with Europe, and will make five nuclear missile regimens ready for combat duty this year. U.S. and NATO officials tell CNN they’re monitoring this, assessing the impact on western security.

    Forget looking the other way as illegals stream across the southern border. The Obama administration is now looking at having the federal government supply housing to thousands of illegals on several military bases, according to The Washington Examiner. The new surge of illegal immigrant youths has forced the federal government to look at an emergency plan to house them at six military bases at at least two federal worker centers, according to the administration. The Pentagon is beginning "site assessments" at bases as far north as North Dakota and Massachusetts. According to the newspaper, Alabama Republican Rep. Martha Roby unveiled...

Obama will sit down with Anderson Cooper on CNN at 8 p.m. ET for the one-hour event titled "Guns in America," which coincides with the fifth anniversary, next Friday, of the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, in a mass shooting that left six dead and 13 others wounded.

    CNN ^ | Thu December 31, 2015 | Jim Acosta and Kevin Liptak
    President Barack Obama is expected to announce in the coming days a new executive action with the goal of expanding background checks on gun sales, people familiar with White House planning said. Described as "imminent," the set of executive actions would fulfill a promise by the President to take further unilateral steps the White House says could help curb gun deaths. Plans for the action are not yet complete, and those familiar with the process warn that unforeseen circumstances could delay an announcement. But gun control advocates are expecting the new actions to be revealed next week, ahead of Obama's...

That was basically how they treated me,” he said.

    Military spending helped prop up November's headline figure. Orders for defense capital goods surged 44.4% last month including a 46.9% increase in orders for defense aircraft and parts. Excluding defense, orders for durable goods fell 1.5% in November after increasing 3.0% in October.

    In an off-the-record meeting with journalists on Tuesday, Obama said that he did not watch enough cable news to fully recognize the extent of people's fears, sources with knowledge of the meeting told CNN. That characterization of Obama's remarks was included in a New York Times article, but later removed while the article was being edited for the print edition. The president's claim has drawn fierce criticism from conservatives, who see it as evidence that Obama is out of touch with national sentiment about the threat of terrorism. "An American president needs to consume more panel debates to properly assess...

Maybe he was afraid someone was going to say something like "Well Mr.President, How Is Your JV Squad team working for you now"? Or questions regarding his success of winning the battle over ISIS?

The economic impact of the pipeline has been largely overblown. The significance of Obama's announcement is that it makes clear the president intends to make his environmental agenda one of his lasting legacies, even if it comes at the expense of support from Democrats in energy-rich states who argue that the pipeline would create needed jobs.

    An awkward toast, sideways glances, a stiff handshake. Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin aren't just geostrategic rivals. They are two guys who simply don't like each other. That much seemed clear after Monday's action at the United Nations in New York, where Obama and Putin sat uncomfortably together at a lunch, then met privately for a 90-minute session which appeared to yield no breakthroughs on the major differences between them. Skipping any pretense of bonhomie, a senior administration official said the men had a "business-like back and forth," dividing their time between Ukraine and Syria. Putin echoed that language, calling...

    President Obama on Monday will announce a plan to rename Alaskas Mount McKinley to Denali, the name that nearby natives have long used. By taking action to officially name the 20,000-foot peak Denali, Obama will take the Alaskan Natives side in a dispute that has stretched on for more than a century. Generally believed to be central to the Athabascan creation story, Denali is a site of significant cultural importance to many Alaska Natives, the White House said in a Sunday fact sheet. The name Denali has been used for many years and is widely used across the state today....

    Sheriff David Clarke placed the blame for the execution of Harris County deputy Darren Goforth squarely upon President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder. Sheriff Clarke joined Judge Jeanine Pirro last night on Justice with Judge Jeanine.

I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic with whats going on and Im not going to stick my head in the sand about it. I said last December...

    Dinesh DSouza, conservative author, movie-maker, columnist and pundit, took to Twitter to do some trolling on left-leaning pages and post some counter-views on the widely reported shooting deaths of two white television crew members by a black man even suggesting President Obama better stand on the side of blind justice, not race-based politics. In reference to Vester Flanagan, the black former television journalist whose on-air name was Bryce Williams, DSouza tweeted: When a black gay guy goes nuts and kills white people, is it safe to call it a DOUBLE hate crime? Flanagan, prior to killing himself, was believed...

    RJC Demands Obama stop demonizing Jews for opposing the Iran deal. Last week President Obama held a conference call with interested Americans, seeking to directly sell them on the nuclear deal the U.S. and its P5+1 partners made with Iran. Many Jews who listened on the call were taken aback by what they heard as coded anti-Semitic language being used by the President to attack those who are critical of the deal. On Friday, the Republican Jewish Coalition issued a statement demanding that Obama stop demonizing the critics of the Iran deal with code words for Jews. Matt Brooks, the...

    Three years after the Obama administration announced its pivot to Asia, American allies in the region are looking somewhat unconvinced. While no one disputes that managing China and its multiple neighborhood conflicts remains on Washingtons radar, this effort is often overshadowed by other priorities. In particular, the Middle East and confrontation with Russia both historic preoccupations that had been expected to subside keep on emerging at the top of the agenda. The result is relatively simple. Those countries in Asia most worried by China Japan, India, the Philippines, Vietnam, Australia and others are increasingly banding together....
