    (snip) The focus of the fundraiser was on foreign policy and standing with Israel, and everyone at the fundraiser was on the same page—which is the Obama-Clinton foreign policy has dramatically weakened our friendship and relationship with the nation of Israel. The Times somehow found it extraordinary that a conservative Republican would be willing to have a conversation about foreign policy with people who are homosexual. It is only in the Times’ strange caricature of conservatism that that is the case. I am happy to bring my conservative message to anybody—conservative or liberal—and not every supporter of a candidate will...
  • Is Obama Arming Iran for a Secret Reason?

    American Thinker ^ | Jeannie DeAngelis
    When Barack Obama was elected in 2008 the general consensus was that the new president was brilliant -- with nothing but hearsay to back up the claim. The Obama myth was that America’s 44th president was the “smartest man in the room,” a brainiac too “intelligent for Republicans to understand.” Then, as weeks turned into months and months into almost two terms, Obama’s questionable decisions, obvious lack of economic prowess, faux healthcare expertise, and total lack of foreign policy and national security know-how called into question whether the Obama-is-a-genius assertion might have been a bit hasty. Nothing the president has...

    In testimony last week before the House committee in charge of State Department funding, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power acknowledged that the Obama administration intends to abandon the US’s 50 year policy of supporting Israel at the United Nations. After going through the tired motions of pledging support for Israel, “when it matters,” Power refused to rule out the possibility that the US would support anti-Israel resolutions in the UN Security Council to limit Israeli sovereignty and control to the lands within the 1949 armistice lines – lines that are indefensible. Such a move will be taken, she...

    In what would be a first-ever race pitting former secretaries of state, only Condoleezza Rice would beat Hillary Rodham Clinton in Iowa, according to a new poll that could put fire under a languishing "Draft Condi" movement. A new Townhall/Gravis Marketing poll found that Rice would beat Clinton in the state as every other Republican loses to the first Democrat to officially announce her candidacy. Condoleezza Rice and her successor at State, Hillary Clinton. In the poll, Rice would beat Clinton 43 percent to 40 percent, taking evangelical Protestants, Catholics and voters under 50 years old.

    Media Research Center ^ | April 24, 2015 | Dan Gainor
    Many historians call the Armenian Holocaust the first holocaust of the 20th Century, a dress rehearsal for the Nazi nightmare that followed. This April 24 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of roughly 1.5 million Armenian Christians at the hands of Turkish Muslims. That mass slaughter has gone virtually unreported by the broadcast networks. It was a genocide so awful that candidate Barack Obama promised in 2008 he would acknowledge it as such. “As president, I will recognize the Armenian genocide,” he vowed. Obama has violated that promise every year since. This will be the seventh anniversary that Obama...

The meeting will take place today at 1600, following public outrage after 900 migrants died on Sunday, when their boat sank on its way to Europe from Libya. Diplomats said that the summit will come up with four main messages. The first is that the EU is ready to save lives. Indeed, leaders are likely to...

I was told that few Senate staffers are being allowed to read this classified version of the framework. This revelation raises several serious questions about President Obama’s desperate effort to get a nuclear deal with Iran. First, this classified version of the framework agreement must be different from the fact sheet on the framework released by the State...

Between 1976-1977, the Carter family peanut business received a bailout in the form of a $4.6 million, "poorly managed" and highly irregular loan from the National Bank of Georgia (NBG). According to a July 29, 1980 Jack Anderson expose in The Washington Post, the bank's biggest borrower was Mr. Carter, and its chairman at that time was Mr. Carter's confidant, and later his director of the Office of Management and Budget, Bert Lance.

    Just a week ago, Iran’s Supreme Leader, the despotic Ayatollah Khamenei, announced there would be no way he would allow nuclear inspections on military sites, that there would be no surprise inspections of nuclear facilities and the day Iran agrees to the final deal all the sanctions must get lifted or there is no deal. Ever since the Iranian leader revealed his opposition to the President’s interpretation of the framework deal the Obama administration has indicated they may be ready to fold to the Iranian demands—perhaps the most significant of which is the report that Iran will get $30-$50 billion...

    White House and Department of State officials contend that – irrespective of Congress – President Obama can apply effective diplomatic, commercial and national security pressure, coercing Israel to repartition Jerusalem, and retreat from the mountain ridges of Judea and Samaria to the 9-15 mile wide pre-1967 sliver, surrounded by the violently turbulent and unpredictable Arab Street. That inaccurate underestimate of the power of Congress – which has traditionally opposed pressure on Israel, echoing the sentiments of most constituents – was recently expressed by US Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro: “what is unmistakable about our foreign policy system is that the...

    With every day that passes, Operation Decisive Storm proves just how necessary, and hence, justifiable it is. The conspirators inside Yemen have made huge investments over the past few years in funding sectarian infrastructures, organizations, logistics, as well as tribal and interest-based relations woven with ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh’s “family-run militia.” The militia that has fought under his banner defends his interests and the interests of those he chooses to befriend today, only to turn on them tomorrow. These investments have been huge and long term. The investors are now well known and for a time this looked like nothing...

    Iran has rejected a call by US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz for unlimited access of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors to the Islamic Republic’s military sites. In a Monday interview with ISNA news agency, the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) described Moniz’s demand as “not practical and acceptable.” Behrouz Kamalvandi noted that negotiations aimed at reaching an agreement over Iran’s nuclear program “are still underway,” urging the other side to put forward its views during the talks. Kamalvandi stressed that Tehran will not undertake any commitments beyond “common laws and regulations.” Earlier on Monday,...

    Once Obama is no longer president, I suspect he’ll be getting the same ‘warm welcome’ that Jimmy Carter is getting from the government of Israel right now. And it’s so satisfying: TIMES OF ISRAEL – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin have turned down invitations to meet with former US president Jimmy Carter during his upcoming visit to Israel over his “anti-Israel” views. Both the president and prime minister declined the invitations after consulting with the Foreign Ministry and the National Security Council, Haaretz reported Monday.

    Largest cash infusion to terror regime in recent memory, experts say The State Department on Monday would not rule out giving Iran up to $50 billion as a so-called “signing bonus” for agreeing to a nuclear deal later this year, according to comments made to journalists following reports that the Obama administration had formulated a plan to release tens of billions of frozen Iranian funds. Experts have said this multi-billion dollar “signing bonus” option, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, could be the largest cash infusion to a terror-backing regime in recent memory. A cash release of...

    RUSH: You know, it's absurd. Obama has said it again. Let's take a look at what's going on. We have ISIS murdering 30, at least, Ethiopia Christians, 15 by drowning, 15 by beheading. The FBI announced just this morning in Minneapolis that we're on the verge of a plague in this country of domestic Americans seeking to join ISIS because there's something romantic about it; there's something exciting about it. Their lives apparently are so empty that they are looking for excitement, they want to join ISIS. The FBI made a major announcement in Minneapolis this morning detailing this and...

    Lucy Aharish, chosen to light a torch on Independence Day, tells of her journey from Dimona to prime-time television Lucy Aharish was a 5-year-old girl who had just finished clothes shopping with her parents in Gaza when the family vehicle was attacked by a terrorist. “It was April 1987, a very hot day, and my dad opened the window,” she recalled. “I remember a traffic jam on the main road and I saw someone approach us with something in his hand. I looked at him and he looked back at me, and I automatically started sliding down on my seat...
