    (CNSNews.com) - "I don't need a teleprompter," Vice President Joe Biden said as he rose to speak at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Breakfast in Washington on Monday. He then launched into a speech full of political anecdotes, memories of his early activism in the civil rights movement, and indignation about alleged attempts to curb voting rights. Biden said he got involved in the civil rights movement "when I was just a kid." "The issue that really got me involved in the first place -- I was the only white kid working in the East Side (of Scranton, Pa.)...I...

    It’s not too difficult to understand that we are well on our way to a paradigm shift in America; in fact we’re in the midst of it right now. The writing is on the wall and can no longer be ignored. The US government has run up trillions of dollars in debt, and given the recent debates over the country’s debt ceiling, we can rest assured that neither Congress nor the President will act to curtail spending and balance the budget. We will continue adding trillions of dollars to the national debt clock until such time that our creditors no...

    It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said. This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true. Before Benghazi, they claimed al-Qaeda was defeated and on the...

    Iran's "moderate" president, Hassan Rouhani, tweeted this morning that "world powers," including the U.S., had "surrendered" to the "Iranian nation's will" in confirming a six-month interim nuclear deal that will allow the Iranian regime to continue its advanced centrifuge program and develop a new nuclear facility at Arak. President Barack Obama, meanwhile, implored Americans to "give peace a chance" with the Iran deal. Though the Obama administration claims that the interim deal--which includes a secret side deal--will lead Iran to give up any ambitions of becoming a nuclear power, the regime has publicly declared that the agreement reached in Geneva...

    (CNSNews.com) - Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says unless Congress acts, the Highway Trust Fund will run out of money at the end of fiscal 2014 -- "because people are driving less, driving more fuel-efficient cars, and the gas tax hasn't been raised in many years." Monies in the Trust Fund fund -- derived mostly from excise taxes on gasoline and other fuels -- fund the federal government's highway and mass transit projects.

    Passing bills to find out what’s in them… that was so 2010, right? Sadly, no. Any day now, Congress is likely to release the trillion-dollar Trojan horse that is the spending bill for 2014. It’s going to be big, and it’s going to be rushed. And few members of Congress (if any) are going to read it all. Government budgeting isn’t supposed to be done this way. It takes 12 spending bills to fund the entire government. But in an omnibus—the type of bill experts are expecting—Congress throws all of those together and just votes once on the whole thing....

    Yes, Obamacare has raised premiums, caused people to lose their health coverage, raised taxes, and more. But on January 1, Obamacare started digging in for the long haul: putting down the deep roots of entitlement programs. Entitlements—like the big three of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—are the biggest causes of America’s spending and debt crisis. And Obamacare creates a new entitlement program while expanding another. The creation of a new entitlement: Taxpayer-funded subsidies for millions of Americans Obamacare created insurance exchanges to sell and subsidize government-approved health care plans. Most of those who attain coverage through the exchanges will have...

As of Jan. 1 (Happy New Year, by the way!), the import or manufacture of 40-watt or 60-watt light bulbs is now forbidden in the United States. This follows the ban on 75-watt and 100-watt bulbs, which had already been implemented.

    As if ObamaCare’s botched website, coverage cancellations, and higher costs were not bad enough, the Obama Administration has quietly dealt yet another blow – this time striking millions of the nation’s most vulnerable seniors. Specifically, the Obama Administration has decided to deeply cut funding for the Medicare program’s home health benefit as a way to help pay for ObamaCare. The Administration made this announcement very quietly, waiting to do so until the very end of the last Friday before Thanksgiving, perhaps thinking that most people would not be looking. To be sure, the timing of the Administration’s quiet announcement did...

Americans will suffer through higher energy bills, but also through higher prices for goods and services, slowing the economy...

What that means is that chickens from the United States will be shipped all the way over to China, processed in plants over there, and then shipped...

    Within the upper echelons of our military there still remain men and women who are committed to the fundamental laws of the land. But assuming that all members of our military will be there to support the Constitution of the United States when our nation needs them most would be a mistake. Understand this: There are those within their ranks who would turn on their oaths and forcibly seize the very rights our Founders fought so hard to preserve without giving it a second thought. The following opinion piece, penned by Lt. Col. Robert Bateman, shows in stark detail exactly...

    The Obamacare website (Healthcare.gov) was taken down for maintenance in order to meet the government’s promised deadline of having it running properly. It’s back up and running now. Sort of. And apparently, it still sucks. Despite the victorious announcement by the Washington Post that the site is fixed and the deadline of November 30th has been met, we are officially calling “BS” on that announcement. Among the failures, as enumerated on Breitbart.com: ■It can only handle 50,000 users at a time ■It loads incredibly slowly ■Small businesses still cannot sign up online (and won’t be able to until the...

    Last September 11, 2012, al-Qaeda affiliated jihadists attacked our consulate in Benghazi, killing our ambassador and three others who disobeyed orders to stand down and died trying to defend him and his staff. Yet on the night of the attack, Obama failed to order a rescue mission, went to bed, and when he awoke, flew off to Las Vegas for a campaign stop as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened. The attack had been an act of war. The president’s actions were very likely a dereliction of duty, an impeachable offense and had the effect of making elements...

    With the Patient Affordable Care Act now actively being integrated into American society, many still have no clue what its after-effects will actually be.

Our entire economy is about to get hit with a sledgehammer. The following must share micro-documentary from Everything Investments details many of the changes to come, and despite what the mainstream media wants us to believe,...

    Mr. Obama I am a 54 year old white male, born and raised in Texas. I grew up in an area that was racist to the core, Klan rallies on a regular basis, a Klan bookstore on Main Street. In spite of all that, I was raised to respect others, if not by my parents, by school teachers and others who were open minded and willing to look beyond skin color or other things that make one person different from another. As a young Marine, my grandfather served in China before WWII, my father served in Korea, and after High...

    Did you realize that if you have a dollar bill in your pocket, you actually have a fairly reliable standard of measurement? You see the long side of a dollar bill laid flat on a surface, measures exactly six inches long. Practically speaking, this means that if you have a dollar in your pocket you have a very reliable six-inch ruler at your disposal. Regrettably, what you don’t have at your disposal is a dollar. You see, as a standard of linear measurement, the dollar bill might be a reliable tool, but as a measure of wealth the dollar bill...
  • Obama Abandons Imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini in Iran for Nuke Deal (What a deal!)

    This weekend, the Obama Administration proclaimed that a historic “deal” was reached with the mad mullahs of Tehran. A breakthrough in their nuclear program, one that would ease sanctions and restrictions, while keeping them “away” from nuclear weapons. The joke is on us because nothing changes. But in the meantime, Obama could have secured the release of American Pastor Saeed Abedini, and possibly others, imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith. If he cared, he could have made the release of Abedini as part of the terms for the “nuclear agreement” with Iran. But Obama abandons Americans at every turn....

    China just dropped an absolute bombshell, but it was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States. The central bank of China has decided that it is “no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves”. During the third quarter of 2013, China’s foreign-exchange reserves were valued at approximately $3.66 trillion. And of course the biggest chunk of that was made up of U.S. dollars. For years, China has been accumulating dollars and working hard to keep the value of the dollar up and the value of the yuan down. One of the goals has been to...
  • By Unilaterally Changing Obamacare, Obama Is Making A Mockery Of The Constitution

    when can a president change a law all by himself? By unilaterally declaring that certain provisions of Obamacare will not be enforced, Barack Obama is making a mockery of the U.S. Constitution. For those that have not read it, the U.S. Constitution says that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed“. So when Obama declares that he will not enforce certain provisions of Obamacare for a year, he is directly violating the Constitution. And as Stanford Law School Professor Michael McConnell wrote back in July, the Office of Legal Counsel for the Justice Department “has...

    Clockwise from top left: Ambassador Christopher Stevens; Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith; former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Rest in Peace This makes me weep . . . . Americans trapped in Benghazi that awful night of Sept. 11, 2012, were pleading for their lives — for someone to rescue them. But their Commander In Chief was thousands of miles away that night in the White House and disappeared for hours – hours about which the White House refuses to account. Their Commander In Chief was so blasé, he actually went to bed and slept,...

    Do you ever have those moments when you feel validated? I had one of those moments this morning. Finally someone is talking about the secret security force that is mandated by Obamacare. Representative Louie Gohmert (Republican – Texas – 1st District) dropped his bombshell last week on The Janet Mefferd Show. Paul Joseph Watson reports: Referring to a section of the gargantuan Obamacare law which discusses “the president’s own commissioned and non-commissioned officer corps,” Gohmert drew attention to the notion that under the pretext of a “national emergency,” such individuals could be used to impose some form of medical martial...
