    On December 18, 2014, Barack Obama officially began the war on police as he signed an Executive Order establishing the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Since the signing of this Executive Order, 55 Officers have been killed in the line of duty. Yet, this mattered little to Obama who justified his Executive Order as he spoke about “the distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities – the sense that in a country where our basic principle is equality under the law, too many individuals, particularly young people of color, do not feel they...

    President Barack Obama has adjusted his goal of having 1 million plug-in vehicles on the road by this year's end, much to the disappointment of many electric vehicle enthusiasts. The change of heart comes six years after Obama signed an executive order mandating electric cars with the intent of the government buying 1 million EVs by 2015, according to Bloomberg. However, the president scaled back this objective in March, due to sales and government purchases not meeting expectations. The decline in consumer interest in electric vehicles, which lack the infrastructure that gasoline-powered vehicles have, played a significant role. U.S. consumers...

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday created the first sanctions program that would allow the U.S. to penalize individuals and entities overseas who engage in malicious cyberattacks and cyber spying. "Cyber threats pose one of the most serious economic and national security challenges to the United States," Obama said in a statement after signing an executive order creating the sanctions regime. The order gives the U.S. the authority to sanction individuals, though no specific penalties were announced. Obama said the sanctions would apply to those engaged in malicious cyber activity that aims to harm critical infrastructure, damage computer systems, and steal...

That was the angry blast by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen against the Department of Justice whom he accused of misleading him on President Obama's executive order on immigration. In contrast to normal federal court proceedings, it was quite an emotional confrontation. That plus the fact that the executive order has been big news for months you would figure it would have been covered in the MSM. Well, for the most part you would be wrong.

    WASHINGTON — President Obama signed an executive order on Thursday to set new goals for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of federal agencies, his latest use of his executive authority to address the root causes of climate change and press private companies and foreign governments to follow suit. Mr. Obama’s directive orders federal agencies over the next decade to cut their emissions by an average of 40 percent compared with their levels when he won office in 2008, and to increase their use of electricity from renewable sources by 30 percent. The goals are in line with a commitment that...

Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Sen. Orrin G.

This one is slated to send tax rates skyrocketing through the roof! The hoopla started last Friday, when Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders submitted a letter to the White House that asked the president to nullify six currently active corporate tax breaks. Closing these tax breaks would raise $100 billion in a decade, but also cost us innumerable jobs. When questioned about this letter by Ed Henry, senior White House correspondent with Fox News, Earnest first tried...

    A coalition of states suing to stop President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration alleges the government misled a judge about not implementing part of the plan before the judge temporarily halted it. The allegation comes after the Justice Department said in court documents this week that federal officials had given 100,000 people three-year reprieves from deportation and granted them work permits under a program that protects young immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Justice Department attorneys had previously said federal officials wouldn't accept requests under an expansion of the 2012 Deferred Action...

    It’s started. As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is putting the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

But the order stopped short of exempting the companies from liability if the data they collected and shared led to legal action. Only...

    Some illegal alien activists, who are seeking full and unconditional amnesty from President Barack Obama instead of what they see as an incremental "reform policy," are now participating in protest rallies and demonstrations holding placards and signs that read more like threats than petitions for immigration reform. In fact, some are threatening to kill U.S. police officers if their demands are not met. Threats are nothing new, but what is new is the audacity displayed by protesters who have no fear of retribution by police or federal law enforcement agents and no fear of public outrage.

In fact, it is increasingly clear that the sweeping magnitude of Mr. Obama’s order is unprecedented. Central to the administration’s argument is its contention that the 4 million covered by the president’s order — some 36 percent of the estimated undocumented population of 11 million — is in line with the percentage covered by a comparable action by President George H.W....

The move would be mostly symbolic, since Obama would certainly veto such legislation and the Democratic-led Senate likely wouldn’t go along with it. But GOP leaders hope it will assuage Republicans furious about Obama’s two-week-old actions to shield some 4 million immigrants in this country illegally from deportation, and grant them work permits. “We’re looking at a number...

    Obama went to pains to note that his executive order, giving five million illegal immigrants amnesty, would not qualify them for federal benefits. But new reports are casting doubt on Obama's claims. Despite claims to the contrary, Obama's amnesty will likely give millions of illegals access to Medicare, Social Security, and other benefits programs, several sources say. According to The Washington Post, Obama's amnesty order will give millions of illegals the status of being "lawfully present" in the USA. This status will require them to pay taxes, but as White House spokesman Shawn Turner notes, "If they pay in, they...

Ted Cruz said Sunday that President Obama refuses to accept that only Congress has the authority to establish federal immigration laws and that members should block the president’s nominees and some funding until he rescinds his executive action on the issue. “This is a stunning and sad display by the president,” Cruz, a Republican, told “Fox News Sunday.” “We need to impose real consequence.” Cruz suggested, as he has since Obama announced the executive action Thursday, that Congress should take action next year when Republicans, who already control the House, will also have the majority in the Senate.

    Obama has claimed that the reasons he has taken this step of an executive order is because Congress had supposedly done nothing, and the steps he has taken will improve the immigration system. Let us, for the moment, assume his premise is entirely true. Here’s the problem: Executive orders have NOTHING to do with Congress. They are entirely within the purview of the Executive Branch (assuming they are legal, which, for the moment, I will grant the president). And since they are an entirely presidential matter, why has he not done anything with that power until now? The president has...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- President Obama quietly signed a classified executive order authorizing a more expansive role for U.S. troops in Afghanistan in 2015, ensuring American troops will be fighting in the country for at least one more year, The New York Times reported. The order allows American troops to take a direct role in missions against militant groups that include the Taliban.

    Lie #1: Every President has Taken Executive Action on Immigration: No other president has ever issued an amnesty of anywhere near this scope, created it out of thin air, or built it upon a prior executive action instead of a statute. And in the case of President Eisenhower, his executive action was to deport 80,000 illegal immigrants. Lie #2: Illegal Immigrant Crossings are Down: Actually, this is the third straight year that border crossings have gone up, not to mention the entirely new wave from Central America. Lie #3: It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here...

    Just how much will patriotic American citizens take? Millions of conservatives are expressing utter disgust and anger at this latest criminal act by an alien Oval Office occupier intent on transforming our country into a land more closely resembling the ritual mass-beheading scenes from Mel Gibson’s film Apocalypto than the one we grew up in. Obama flouts the Constitution and sneers at the American people with his announcement of unlegislated de facto amnesty for millions of La Raza’s Aztlan Reconquistadors, and he dares anyone to stop him. We’ve seen the numerous video clips from recent years showing Obama himself repeatedly...
