  • Obama: Let's Face It, These Republicans Are Practically ISIS Recruiters (Psychological Projection)

    During his APEC address tonight, President Obama had some tough words for Republicans refusing to take in Syrian refugees. Yesterday he said that not taking in refugees would violate America’s values, but today he got much, much tougher in going after them. He said the “fear and panic” only serves to make the situation worse if everyone’s basing their judgments on “hysteria or an exaggeration of risks.” ..."I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric that’s coming out of here during the course of this debate,” [he said]. He wasn't finished: Obama...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said Monday morning that he is putting a hold on three of President Obamas ambassadorial nominees until the administration shows it is taking steps to punish Secret Service staff involved in leaking unflattering information about a lawmaker. This was apparently a violation of law, and absolutely shocking conduct, Cotton said in an interview. The executive branch all the way up to the West Wing needs to treat this with the seriousness it requires. Cotton called on Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to personally attend to disciplining top Secret Service leaders specifically including new Director Joseph...

    It could have been the first general election rally of a Trump-Cruz 2016 ticket. In front of a crowd of more than a thousand on a blisteringly hot Wednesday outside the U.S. Capitol, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas fired up the crowd for Donald Trump, who brought them to frenzy status at a rally in opposition to President Barack Obamas proposed nuclear deal with Iran. It is certainly too far off to say it could happen, but not too far off to envision a similar scenario playing out a little less than a year from now on the larger stage...

    A National Labor Relations Board administrative law judge ruled that agreements signed by employees of Oklahoma-based arts and crafts company Hobby Lobby requiring them to submit to arbitration rather than go to court in work disputes are unenforceable. The ruling by the government's labor enforcement agency, announced Wednesday, could potentially undermine a common practice used by employers to avoid litigation under federal labor laws. "This is a dramatic decision," said David Rosenfeld, attorney for the Committee to Preserve the Religious Right to Organize, the group that brought the charges against Hobby Lobby.

    It was particularly revealing when David Axelrod explained that, of all his accomplishments in Barack Obamas White House, he was proudest of the fact that there hasnt been a major scandal. The qualifier major lays the burden on shoulders of the press to define what constitutes a serious scandal, and political media had thus far reliably covered the administrations ethical lapses as merely the peculiar obsessions of addlebrained conservatives. Surely, much of the political establishment in Washington nodded along with Axelrod as he patted himself on the back. A mere seven months later, though, and it is clear now that...

    The most disturbing aspect of the scandal around Hillary Clintons use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is not the former first ladys penchant for secrecy. Whats truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own. Whether that eventually proves true, the sentiment itself reveals a...

When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities, claimed that only low level employees...

As the Oversight Committee report states, the instant messaging system did not archive any communications, so it is not possible to know what...

Weve briefed the leaderships counsel, and I think that theyre open to it, but its the type of thing where this town is like, oh, thats not how we do things, its not really been used lately, a Republican member of the House Oversight...

    WASHINGTON (AP) Investigators are blaming mistakes by IRS employees not a criminal conspiracy for the loss of thousands of emails related to the tax agency's tea party scandal. IRS workers erased 422 computer backup tapes that "most likely" contained as many as 24,000 emails to and from former IRS official Lois Lerner, who has emerged as a central figure in congressional investigations, according to IRS's inspector general. The workers erased the tapes a month after IRS officials discovered that an untold number of Lerner's emails were lost. The IG says the workers were unaware of a year-old...

    By de-judaizing the victims, who were targets only because they were Jews, Obama denied the uniqueness of the threat jihadist Islam and its adherents pose to Jews. US President Barack Obama is mainstreaming anti-Semitism in America. This week, apropos of seemingly nothing, in an interview with Mathew Yglesias from the website, Obama was asked about terrorism. In his answer the president said the terrorism threat is overrated. And that was far from the most disturbing statement he made. Moving from the general to the specific, Obama referred to the jihadists who committed last months massacres in Paris as a...

    The map of the Middle East displayed in an Obama administration video released days before President Barack Obamas visit to Israel shows the Jewish state dispossessed of substantial parts of its current territory, including its capital. The map of Israel, displayed repeatedly during the video, shows the Golan Heights, Jerusalem, northern Israel, and areas surrounding what is currently the West Bank as non-Israeli territory. The Golan Heights is shown as part of Syria; Jerusalem is shown as part of the West Bank; and northern Israel is shown as part of Lebanon. The itinerary on the White House website also implies...
  • Dershowitz: Obama Set to Make 'Dreadful Mistake' With Iran

    President Barack Obama is about to make a "dreadful mistake" by cutting a deal with Iran on its nuclear program without approval from Congress, which not only puts the United States in danger but the whole world, renowned legal expert Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV. "This is a very serious crisis about separation of powers the president mistakenly believes that the executive has the authority to make this deal with Iran without any input from Congress," Dershowitz, professor emeritus from Harvard Law School, told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Friday. "He's wrong constitutionally, he's wrong historically, he's wrong...

    Joining the outpouring of criticism against the Iranian nuclear framework deal announced last week on Tuesday were legendary former US Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George P. Shultz, who warned of the implications of the deal. In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, the two veteran diplomats wrote that debate regarding technical details of the deal has thus far inhibited the soul-searching necessary regarding its deeper implications. [] Kissinger and Shultz noted that by mixing shrewd diplomacy with open defiance of U.N. resolutions, Iran has gradually turned the negotiation on its head. Irans centrifuges have multiplied from about 100...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) On the eve of his major address to Muslims, President Barack Obama faced criticism at home Wednesday from some fellow Democrats who believe he has gone too far in pressuring Israel to freeze settlements. "I think the president went beyond where I think it was appropriate for us to go in dealing with another democracy," said Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner. "Any conversations about settlements, which are perfectly reasonable, have to be coupled with a sincere effort on the part of the Palestinians." His comments were an unusual rebuke by Democrats of Obama, who has popularity ratings north...

    Following the media blitz Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began in the United States this week against the framework nuclear agreement between Iran and the world powers, the White House on Monday responded with a counter-campaign with messages aimed at calming the Israeli public. Ben Rhodes, the U.S. deputy national security adviser for strategic communication told all three Israeli television stations in interviews broadcast synchronously that if Iran were to breach the agreement, President Barack Obama would consider all of the options for response including military action. "If Iran violates all options are on the table," Rhodes said. "The president,...
  • Obamas Anti-Netanyahu Boycott Is Collapsing

    The final numbers are not yet in, but it seems clear that the White House-orchestrated campaign to boycott Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus speech to Congress is collapsing. Despite two weeks of intense anti-Netanyahu leaks, insults, and pressure, the White House has so far succeeded in persuading only a handful of Democratic members of Congress to stay away from the speech. A grand total of two Senators and twelve Representatives have publicly announced that they are boycotting Israels prime minister. Assuming that those figures change only marginally in the days ahead, it will mean that 98% of the Senate and 95%...
