    President Obama will announce the resignation of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday in the first high-profile personnel move since Democrats suffered significant losses in this month's midterm elections. "In October, Secretary Hagel began speaking with the President about departing the administration given the natural post-midterms transition time," a senior administration official said. Obama will make the announcement with Hagel at 11:00 a.m. According to the White House, a successor will be named "in short order," but Hagel will remain in the post until that person is confirmed by the Senate. A senior administration official praised Hagel as "a steady...

    Breitbart ^ | 11/24/2014 | by JOEL B. POLLAK
    The New York Times reports that President Barack Obama is about to dismiss Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. The reason given? That the White House recognized that "the threat from the Islamic State would require a different kind of skills than those that Mr. Hagel was brought on to employ." In other words: Hagel was brought on to downgrade the military radically, but now the military turns out to be necessary, after all. Yet that cannot be the only reason, absent any sign that Obama is committing to a sudden, steep increase in the defense budget, and reversing the non-sequester...

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down under pressure, the first cabinet-level casualty of the collapse of President Obama’s Democratic majority in the Senate and the struggles of his national security team amid an onslaught of global crises. The president, who is expected to announce Mr. Hagel’s resignation in a Rose Garden appearance on Monday, made the decision to ask his defense secretary — the sole Republican on his national security team — to step down last Friday after a series of meetings over the past two weeks, senior administration officials said.

    In his speech tonight announcing that he is unilaterally changing American law, President Barack Obama called out those against amnesty as anti-American and, paradoxically, pro-amnesty. The President made it clear that those who do not believe in what he is doing are, in fact, the ones who support amnesty. "I know some of the critics of this action call it amnesty," the President stated. "Well, it's not." He then went on, "Amnesty is the immigration system we have today – millions of people who live here without paying their taxes or playing by the rules, while politicians use the issue...

    The day after the 2014 election, the president made one of his Olympian pronouncements: "To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you," he declared. But, "to the two-thirds of Americans who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you too." But what are non-voters saying, that they love the president so much that they couldn't bear to take part in an election where he'd be crushed? It's more likely non-voting is due to laziness, apathy or cynicism about a political process that offers Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as alternatives. In 2014,...

    For decades, the black vote in the United States almost uniformly has gone to Democrats. How’s that working out? Black unemployment is twice the national average, poverty rates are higher than before Democrats offered “help,” and the education system fails a disproportionate number of black children. That’s what 50-plus years of blind voting loyalty to Democrats has earned. And, thanks to those same Democrats and the nation’s first black president, it’s about to get a lot worse. President Obama is set to legalize upwards of 5 million illegal aliens, with the dream of granting amnesty and citizenship to 6 million...

    Dear President Obama, You’ve been a great friend for the last six years and, to express our appreciation, we’d like to acknowledge some of your many helpful actions: 1) In 2009, our presidential election results were so dubious that millions of brave, pro-democracy protesters risked their lives to demonstrate throughout our country. When our Basij paramilitary force brutalized them, you kept your response irrelevantly mild for the sake of “engaging” us. That surely helped Iranians understand the risks of protesting our “free” election of 2012 (involving our eight handpicked candidates). It was indeed a very orderly rubberstamp. 2) After eight...

Fifty-three percent want Republicans to have more influence over the direction of the country compared to 36 percent who want Mr. Obama to have more, according to Gallup. The 17-point gap is even greater than the eight-point, 49 percent-to-41 percent advantage the GOP held after the 2010 midterm...

    President Barack Obama's commander in the fight against Ebola was expected to operate below the public radar. But did that mean invisible? Ron Klain has barely been seen, and a week before midterm elections, Obama is pressing to dispel criticism that the government can't manage the Ebola crisis. The White House's behind-the-scenes coordination of the Ebola response is being severely tested, while the Pentagon and states like New York and New Jersey take public steps that are far firmer than federal guidelines. That's creating the appearance of a crazy quilt of Ebola measures. "The CDC is behind on this," New...

While looking into Gramsci, I came across James Joll's book, a clear exposition of Gramsci’s ideas by a fan of the Italian Marxist. Thus it can be said that the text is a fair account of Gramsci's ideas. And if there is any bias in the texts I've chosen, it's bias in favor -- rather than against – Antonio Gramsci.

President Bush’s popularity had steadily declined, partly also due to his base’s disgust with him pushing amnesty for illegal aliens. He watched his Grand Old Party get massacred at the polls, losing control of both houses of congress in the mid-term elections that November. Democrats were elated. The preceding several years of humiliation and defeat were over, and they sensed their continuing resurgence. Sure enough, they parlayed their catbird seat all...

We want to have a president who thinks through the issues. My experience in Washington is that logic alone doesn't work. Once you lay out a position, you are going to roll up...

    Former Obama Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has dropped what may be the biggest bombshell yet on his former boss. Panetta appeared on MSNBC today and explained that he knew, from the beginning, that the attack on the US facility in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, was a terrorist attack. President Obama did not see it that way, and his actions that night remain a mystery. Host Andrea Mitchell asked Panetta, “You wrote in the book that you disagreed with David Petraeus and told the situation room he thought it was a spontaneous demonstration outside the consulate that night. Why...

    Democrats are panicking, and rightly so. Going into the November congressional elections, voter opposition to Obama is worse than it was for George W. Bush and for Bill Clinton at their respective six-year marks, and Democrats can’t unyoke themselves from him. It’s not just that Gallup’s latest polls show Obama’s policies are unpopular but that voters are planning to make a statement to that effect in November. Since 1998, Gallup has included a question to determine whether the voters are intending to use their vote to “send a message” that they either support or oppose the sitting president. Gallup found...

    In another sign of President Obama's deteriorating public support, more than half of Americans now say that he is failing as president, the latest IBD/TIPP poll finds. The poll, which ended Friday, found that 53% characterize Obama's presidency as a failure vs. 41% who rate it a success. Just 6% say that they aren't sure. Obama's standing among independents is even worse, with 58% calling his presidency is a failure. Half of those who live in states that voted for Obama say that his presidency is failing.

    It is not President Barack Obama's fault that the media, and hence the public, did not understand what he meant when he said he had "decimated" the core leadership of al-Qaida. That misunderstanding grew when it was revealed that the Osama bin Laden-less leadership of al-Qaida was still alive and had moved into Syria, morphing into what is now known as the Khorasan Group within ISIS -- the Islamist State in Iraq and Syria

    Last night at an immigration activist dinner in Washington DC Obama took his shameless pandering and tenuous hold on reality to new despicable depths. Speaking before the mostly Latino crowd, the President actually said his best definition of an American is someone who enters this country illegally and leaches off the hard work of others. Obama got the crowd warmed up by speaking a little Spanish and telling them he rode to the event with two illegal aliens in his limo. Amid the current Secret Service scandal, you have to wonder how illegal aliens get vetted so they can party...

    Today on the main site, I have an article up about President Obama's silence concerning Colleen Hufford, the woman beheaded by Muslim convert Alton Nolen on September 25th. Well, it seems that President Obama has seen to it that a letter of his was read aloud to the mosque that Nolen attended. Obama praises the mosque for its work following the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma last year...........

    Former President Bill Clinton was in his home state of Arkansas today to campaign for Sen. Mark Pryor. At a rally in Conway, Clinton said, "the economy is coming back but nobody believes it yet because you don't feel it." Clinton also touted his record as president. "I don't expect anybody to vote on it or be happy because middle class incomes haven't risen, the average family is making less adjusted for inflation than they were the day I left office," he said.

    I know that many of my conservative friends think that there are evil geniuses at work in the White House with a master plan to collapse the system. And I‘m not discounting that they have such a plan. No. Not at all. My quibble is with the part where they call them geniuses. Sure, this White House is clever in spots. But so are raccoons. But I wouldn’t trust raccoons to implement healthcare reform, for example. You know… unless my only other option was to allow the folks in Washington, DC implement it. So let’s just say that after six...
