    At 10:08 a.m. Eastern time, nearly 12 hours after the slaying of an MIT police officer sparked a crime spree by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, the first peep of news was heard from the White House. It wasn’t any sort of official statement or updated guidance, but the first report from the White House press pool. A White House official said shortly after 9:45 a.m. President Obama, joined by Vice President Biden, “convened a briefing in the White House Situation Room with his national security team on developments in the investigation as well as the events in Boston and...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., March 19, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The man President Obama has nominated to become the next Secretary of Labor has been accused of filing baseless lawsuits against pro-life protesters in order to chill their right to free speech. On Monday, Obama named Thomas Perez, the assistant attorney general of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, to replace outgoing Secretary Hilda Solis. Last September Perez boasted, “We have opened 20 civil investigations under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, and filed eight complaints under the Act – compared to just one civil FACE Act case in the...

    "I do skeet shooting." Of course you do, Mr. President. "I do skeet shooting all the time." Which is why skeet shooters (not "doers" of skeet or "skeeters" as you call them) took a quick look at your photo and noted your aim is straight ahead, not upward where the clay target would be. They also noticed you're pictured using a gun designed for trap shooting, wearing dark sunglasses on a cloudy day, holding the gun incorrectly, your shoulder shows no reaction to what should be the gun's recoil, and a few other oddities. There's also the White House press...

    The year 2012 was a depressing time for people who are already pessimistic about the state of our common culture. Conversely, the re-election of Barack Obama, in large measure made possible by the heavy financial support of Hollywood, projects the optimism of the cultural Left. They anticipate increased blue-state voting patterns in favor of gay "marriage," legalized pot, gun regulations, and what next? Legalized prostitution? Euthanasia subsidized by Obamacare? So let's just line up the cultural winners of Obama's America, where the only impediments to progress are those who believe in religion, manners and "family values." Winner: Seth MacFarlane, the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Spurred by a horrific elementary school shooting, President Barack Obama vowed to send Congress new policy proposals for reducing gun violence by January. "This time, the words need to lead to action," Obama said Wednesday. He tasked Vice President Joe Biden with leading an administration-wide effort to create the new recommendations and pledged to push for their implementation without delay. The president, who exerted little political capital on gun control despite a series of mass shootings in his first term, bristled at suggestions that he had been silent on the issue during his first four years in...

    Being president of the United States must fill a person with a certain level of confidence. Winning reelection despite miserable economic conditions could only add to that level. But has there ever been a president in the history of this country as arrogant as Barack Obama? Not only does he never miss an opportunity to inject his image into historical events, but now he's even adding himself to historical descriptions of other presidents. Back in August, I wrote on the passing of the first man to step foot on the moon, Neil Armstrong. As a "tribute" to Armstrong, Obama...

    Merry Crony-mas! It's time to pass out the goodies. While President Obama's lips champion the middle class, his administration's old hands are preparing to lavish rewards on the creme de la campaign creme: his wealthiest political donors. Several media outlets reported this week that the White House is considering fashion doyenne Anna Wintour for a possible appointment as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain or France. The rumored short list also includes Obama campaign finance chairman Matthew Barzun and investment banker Marc Lasry. The three share one common, er, "qualification": Each raked in more than $500,000 for Team Obama 2012. As...

    Republicans had better learn from history -- and from Ronald Reagan's mistake. President Obama and his fellow big-spenders in Congress are promising if they get higher tax rates today they'll make even higher spending cuts tomorrow. It's an old sucker's game. Republicans -- and the rest of the country -- should know it by now, because for three decades we've all been suckers. If history is our guide, and Republicans in Congress don't grow a spine, by this time next year we'll have higher taxes, higher spending, more debt and a bigger government. Twice before, Republicans have been fooled into...
  • Facing Fiscal Cliff, Obama Goes Overboard on Christmas Trees and Vacation

    So, what does the president of the United States do to set a good example as the country faces a looming financial meltdown? He keeps spending and spending. For this Christmas season, not only did Obama call for significantly more Christmas trees in the White House than last year, but he's also getting ready for a $4 million vacation to Hawaii. As reported by Investors Business Daily, taxpayers will be paying for 54 Christmas trees this year which will adorn the White House. That's a 50% increase in trees over last year. Amazing how a reelection can reshape an incumbent's...

    “I’m waiting on you,” is essentially the message the White House continues to deliver to the House of Representatives when the subject of the pending so-called fiscal cliff is discussed. Frankly, I am a bit weary of the would-be media telling me that the President is “waiting for the GOP to make a move.” Political brinksmanship is part and parcel of elections. I get that, hate it, understand it, but the election is over for crying out loud. Would someone please tell Mr. Obama that he won and that by winning the country has a right to expect HIM to...

So begins the Declaration of Independence of the 13 colonies from the king and country to which they had given allegiance since the settlers first came to Jamestown and Plymouth Rock. The declaration was signed by 56 angry old white guys who had had enough of what the Cousins were doing to them. In seceding from the mother country, these patriots put their lives, fortunes and honor on the line. Four score and five years...

    Intelligent people across the country are asking out loud whether another presidential term for Barack Obama actually will be as bad as we expect it to be. Unfortunately, it probably will be. Because he was as horrible, as disdainful of the Constitution and of decency, fair play and good judgment, as he was in the first four years, imagine what he can do now that he needs not worry about re-election. A look back serves as a reminder of how bad he has been already, so that good Americans can start figuring how to counter the worse Obama still to...

    For decades, it has been obvious that there are irreconcilable differences between Americans who want to control the lives of others and those who wish to be left alone. Which is the more peaceful solution: Americans using the brute force of government to beat liberty-minded people into submission or simply parting company? In a marriage, where vows are ignored and broken, divorce is the most peaceful solution. Similarly, our constitutional and human rights have been increasingly violated by a government instituted to protect them. Americans who support constitutional abrogation have no intention of mending their ways. Since Barack Obama's re-election,...
  • Obama drops God from Thanksgiving address for fourth year straight

    November 22, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – For the fourth year straight, President Obama has omitted any direct statement thanking God in his Thanksgiving address. In 2009 President Obama made history when he issued the first presidential Thanksgiving proclamation that failed to directly thank God. There was an outcry, and Obama’s subsequent proclamations have made prominent mention of God. However, as Ben Shapiro of Breitbart points out, his Thanksgiving addresses (as opposed to the proclamations), which he reads to the camera, have continued to eschew mention of God. In his 2012 Thanksgiving address, Obama says that Thanksgiving is “a time to give...

    Sick of the elections yet? So is four-year-old Abigael Evans from Colorado. Her mother, Elizabeth Evans, 27, posted a Youtube video of her daughter saying that she is tired of "Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney." The 22-second YouTube clip, published yesterday, shows the little girl with a frown on her face and tears rolling down her cheeks, telling her mother she is tired of this election. Elizabeth Evans told ABC News that her daughter got emotional listening to NPR.
