    Beto O'Rourke held back tears as he spoke about Saturday's deadly shooting at a shopping center in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday. Multiple people were reportedly killed during the shooting at the Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, O'Rourke's hometown where he was a three-term congressman up until the beginning of this year. Police said they have one suspect in custody. "We know there has been a lot of injury, a lot of suffering in El Paso right now," O'Rourke said with emotion during a 2020 campaign event in Las Vegas. "I am incredibly sad, and it is very hard...

    JERUSALEM, January 25, 2018 (WAFA) – The Israeli High Court rejected on Thursday an appeal by the family of Isra Jaabis, 32, a mother of a baby child and a resident of Jabal al-Mukkaber neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem, to reduce her sentence and have an early release, according to Isra’s sister Muna. Jaabis was sentenced in November 2016 to serve 11 years in prison after she was charged with attempting to blow up an Israeli army checkpoint outside Jerusalem in October 2015. Jaabis was the only person injured in the explosion in her car that occurred away from the...

    President Obama admitted he cried at a recent senior staff send-off dinner — and is now claiming that he’d be able to get re-elected if he had run for president again. “I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama said in a “The Axe Files” podcast interview by former aide David Axelrod. “I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would...

    Obama: In Some Neighborhoods It’s Cheaper and Easier For Kids To Get a Gun Than a Book Jenna Lifhits BY: Follow @jlifhits January 7, 2016 8:44 pm In a CNN town tall special on Thursday, President Obama said that there are some neighborhoods in America where it is easier and cheaper for kids to purchase guns than books. “Part of the reason, I think, that this ends up being such a difficult issue, is because people occupy different realities,” he said. “There are a whole bunch of law-abiding citizens who have grown up hunting with their dad or going to...

So the North Koreans announced another nuclear test out there. The Iranians the same thing, by the way. Afghanistan is falling apart. Afghanistan's being propped up -- apparently -- I watched Ralph Peters today on Fox this morning.

  • Phony Fascist Tears: Obama Cries During Gun Control Speech

    Obama wiped away tears from his face about five different times during his speech, pausing frequently to add more emotion and gravity to the event. He also deviated several times from his prepared remarks to add more feeling to the text. Members of Obama’s staff were also wiping away tears as the president spoke as members of Congress sat silently in the room. Senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Health and Human Secretary Sylvia Burwell, and FBI directer James Comey attended the speech.

    WASHINGTON, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Wiping back tears as he remembered children killed in a mass shooting, President Barack Obama on Tuesday ordered stricter gun rules that he can impose without Congress and urged American voters to reject pro-gun candidates. Obama made it clear he does not expect gun laws to change during his remaining year in office, but pledged to do what he can to make gun control a theme in the months leading up to the November election to replace him. In a powerful address in the White House, surrounded by family members of people killed in shootings,...

    At the crucial moment, when lines were being drawn, and commitments put to the test, every single vote for or against the deal could have been the one to turn the tide. On the day she announced that she would support the Iran deal, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz got up on CNN and cried. She was anguished, she said, torn between Israel’s security needs and President Obama’s negotiated deal. Wasserman-Schultz, arguably the most powerful female Jewish member of Congress, is the US representative for Florida’s 23rd congressional district with a very large Jewish constituency. She spoke about her “Jewish heart” and the...

The NYPD is investigating and at least one woman, the daughter of his first wife, is coming forward with accusations. - snip - While it’s always alarming to...

    'President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that 'when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.' Less than 10 minutes after leaving the podium Obama teed-off and was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour game Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha's Vineyard - his seventh round in ten days. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter users.'

    President Barack Obama marked the anniversary of the Newtown school shootings on Saturday by calling for tighter gun control and expanded mental healthcare, and by lighting 26 candles to commemorate the victims. "We haven't yet done enough to make our communities and our country safer," the president said in his weekly address. "We have to do more to keep dangerous people from getting their hands on a gun so easily. We have to do more to heal troubled minds." Obama did not mention the shooting at a Colorado high school on Friday where a student armed with a shotgun wounded...

    The official Crocodile Tears of President Obama Tour is rolling right along. Earlier this week, he gave a speech where he lied about the fact that he repeatedly lied to the American people about being able to keep their health insurance. Suddenly, we went from "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan...period!" to "your substandard, trashy plan is being replaced by a better one that you'll love and worship." (Ok, I added the love and worship part.) Now the latest tidbit is Obama's interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, where once again Obama displays false sadness and pain...

    Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) said no progress has been made with the White House in talks to avert the so-called fiscal cliff: across-the-board tax-rate hikes and automatic spending cuts (sequestration) at the beginning of the new year. “This isn’t a progress report because there’s no progress to report,” Boehner said during a Capitol Hill press conference on Friday. “When it comes to the fiscal cliff that is threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the White House has wasted another week.” …

    Senate Republicans blocked a vote on the nomination of Robert Bacharach to be a U.S. circuit judge for the Tenth Circuit court in Oklahoma on Monday because they said it violated an election-year practice. The 56-34-3 vote came despite previously-stated support of Bacharach from the Oklahoma Republican Sens. Tom Coburn and James Inhofe. They chose not to vote against what their party leadership urged, instead they voted present. Sixty votes were needed to clear the proceedural hurdle. “I cannot vote against this guy, but I can vote present,” Inhofe said before the vote. Republicans said ahead of time that they’d...
