    The White House slammed a full-page ad Sunday that appeared in The New York Times attacking National Security Adviser Susan Rice. The ad, claiming "Susan Rice has a blind spot: Genocide," appeared in Saturday's paper promoting a talk by American Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. He claims that Rice has sought to silence Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his address to Congress.

    WASHINGTON -- In the days leading up to President Obama's veto of the Keystone XL pipeline, 14 oil tanker railroad cars derailed in West Virginia and exploded in a fiery environmental disaster. It was reported that residents in the area compared the thunderous fireball and poisonous smoke that blackened the sky to "a scene from the apocalypse" -- describing it as "something biblical, or wrath-of-God type stuff." This wasn't a rare, isolated accident. In the last several years it's become all too common across our country, as the oil industry has struggled to find ways to transport its petroleum to...

    While commenting on whether Western countries can unite to defeat Islamic radicals, Rev. Franklin Graham said one of the major problems is that Western governments have “been infiltrated by Muslims,” and in the United States in particular Muslims “are advising the White House.” They “are part of the problem,” said Rev. Graham. “And we see this also in Western Europe. They have gotten into the halls of power and they are an influence.” The reverend made his remarks on the Feb. 26 edition of The O’Reilly Factor. Asked by host Bill O'Reilly why he thinks "the world will not unite...

"The United States condemns the brutal murder of Boris Nemtsov, and we call upon the Russian government to conduct a prompt, impartial, and transparent investigation into the circumstances of his murder and ensure that those responsible for this vicious killing are brought to justice," Obama said in a statement.

    The Democratic Party lacks a “single narrative” and must tighten its pitch to voters in order to compete in future elections, an interim report from the Democratic National Committee found. The report released at the party’s winter meeting recommended forming a national project to bring together party leaders, activists and messaging experts to hone in on a theme. Currently, the party is “loosely understood as a long list of policy statements and not with a common set of core values,” according to the report. The review was launched last year shortly after Democrats lost control of the Senate in the...

The king, who died Friday, was aggressive in trying to check the spreading power of Saudi Arabia's chief rival, Iran. Obama visited the ailing monarch in his desert compound last March.

In public, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest politely describes this as a “departure” from protocol.

It is historic. Another way in which the Obama administration is historic is in its employ of Islamic theologians in positions where such expertise isn’t required.

In the past, Mexican citizens had to obtain their birth certificates from offices in Mexico. Individuals would often have relatives and friends obtain the documents and send them into the U.S. But with the Mexican government’s help, its U.S.-based citizens will receive documents more quickly, which will help them apply for amnesty under Obama’s...

    Despite its status among progressives as a veritable model for health care reformers and proponents of egalitarianism, the joint announcement by President Barack Obama and Cuban dictator Raul Castro of the normalization of bilateral relations has resulted in a sharp uptick in the number of Cubans desperately fleeing the island in makeshift dinghies. Who could have possibly seen this coming?The Coast Guard is reporting an 117 percent spike in December in the number of Cubans fleeing the island nation by boat. On Monday alone, the Coast Guard returned 121 Cubans back to the custody of authorities in Havana. They...

    President Barack Obama’s New Year gift to Israel and the Middle East is a multibillion fund for establishing an Iraqi army as a division of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

    WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama continues to embrace low-tier, go-it-alone executive actions to pad out the last two years of his mistake-filled, agenda-less presidency in a hopeless hunt for a legacy. His arrogant decision this week to re-establish diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba is the latest example of a president desperately searching for something to do without having to deal with Congress. You can comb through all of the polling data for the topmost concerns of the American people, and renewing U.S. relations with Cuba's evil Castro dictatorship is not among them. But with his job-approval polls in the basement, and...

President gets humiliated and repudiated by voters rejecting his agenda at the polls. B. He pretends it didn’t happen. C.

Congressional Republicans are terrified to boldly confront him; they even pass the budget he wants them to. E. The media starts slavishly and predictably praising the...
