    Assessing President Obama's legacy, the panelists on today's Morning Joe seemed in competition to outdo each other with misplaced praise. Historian David Maraniss led off, calling Obama "the Jackie Robinson of American electoral politics." Next up was Joe Scarborough, who upped the ante by placing Obama in the same category as Martin Luther King, Jr. Batting clean up, Walter Isaacson hit one out of the hyperbole park, claiming that "Obama will go down as one of the great presidents we have ever had."

    In the first 24 hours after Donald Trump’s stunning victory, one of the media figures who appeared to be taking the news the hardest was MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell who began his Wednesday show by hailing President Barack Obama as “the most noble man” to ever become president since George Washington owned slaves and Abraham Lincoln was genocidal toward Native Americans. O’Donnell panned Trump as one who will be joining a pantheon of “the racists who have lived in the White House” but also explained how Obama was more noble of a president than Washington and Thomas Jefferson...

    NEW YORK – Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living “straight” lives in public. It’s within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a “matchmaking service” for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama. Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch has asked not to be considered for the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. In a statement, Department of Justice spokeswoman Melanie Newman said that the "limitations inherent in the nomination process" would prevent her from being effective as attorney general. "Given the urgent issues before the Department of Justice, she asked not to be considered for the position," Newman said.

    I predict the President will nominate DOJ AG Loretta Lynch for Scalia's chair. If the Republican Congress or presidential candidates resist this choice, the President is giving Hillary fodder for rallying the black vote and bashing the Republicans as 'THE RACIST PARTY' and this would be a continuous media feeding frenzy throughout the election!

    A leading Supreme Court analyst thinks Attorney General Loretta Lynch is the "most likely candidate" to replace the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. Tom Goldstein, who runs the influential SCOTUSblog, had earlier predicted Ninth Circuit Judge Paul Watford would make the top of President Obama's shortlist. But in a revised blog post, Goldstein said he now believes Lynch is the leading contender.

    President Obama has said he will push forward a nominee for deceased Justice Antonin Scalia “in due time,” and while some Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail see a delay on the horizon, legal minds are mulling the shortlist – which includes names like former Attorney General Eric Holder and current Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Yahooo! Politics reported the list of names currently being bantered about includes “Sri Srinivasan, a U.S. Court of Appeals judge for the District of Columbia circuits; Merrick Garland, chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of...

Tom Goldstein, who runs the influential SCOTUSblog, had earlier predicted Ninth Circuit Judge Paul Watford would make the top of President Obama's shortlist.

"The fact that Lynch was vetted so recently for attorney general also makes it practical for the president to nominate her in relatively short order."

    NEW YORK — The President of New York's Sergeants Benevolent Association says he supports the decision of Miami's police union to boycott Beyonce's Formation tour concert scheduled in April. Ed Mullins is so incensed over the Grammy winner's black power performance at the Super Bowl, he's thinking of encouraging a similar security boycott for her concert at Citi Field in June. Performing music from her new single "Formation," Beyonce and her backup dancers wore outfits modeled after the militant Black Panthers group of years past, and offered support of the current Black Lives Matter movement. Many were outraged by the...

    Catholic World Report ^ | 2/16/16 | Matthew Cullinan Hoffman
    The pontiff denounces "triumphalism" and "fundamentalism" in religious practice, and emphasizes the importance of a personal familiarity with Christ on the part of bishops. Pope Francis' visit to Mexico, which began on February 12, has been received with all of the fanfare expected for a papal visit from one of the most Catholic nations in the world. Just as Mexicans warmly welcomed John Paul II and Benedict XVI, so they are also giving a very enthusiastic reception to the current pontiff, who is making a point of focusing on the country's suffering lower classes. However, in his rhetorical enthusiasm...
  • Obama’s Warnings About Anti-Semitism Ring Hollow

    Leadership: President Obama staged a political show for a Jewish audience Wednesday, loudly warning of the new atmosphere of anti-Semitism in Europe and the U.S. It's a hollow statement, given his weak record on a rapidly metastasizing problem. "Here, tonight, we must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise. We cannot deny it," the president told his listeners at the Israeli embassy on Wednesday night. Citing the flight of Jews from Western Europe, as well attacks on Jews in India and Kansas, he got his lines right in concluding, "When we see that, we must...

    Coach is Right ^ | 01/07/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Ted Cruz has associated himself with a man who says the Catholic Church supports pedophilia; and Christians should execute homosexuals. If Cruz becomes the Republican nominee this would destroy any chance he might have of defeating Hillary Clinton. If this doesn’t stir his supporters to think twice, it ought to. On Friday, November 6, 2015 Cruz attended a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, hosted by a Colorado pastor who frequently calls for putting gay people to death. The Pastor, Kevin Swanson, is well known for calling for Christians to execute homosexuals just the same as the Islamists do and...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the woman whom the largest percentage of Americans admired most in 2015, according to a Gallup poll. That marks a record 20 years that she has garnered that honor, including the last 14 years in a row. Americans named President Barack Obama their most admired man. This is the eighth time that Obama has taken that honor. In the history of Gallup's most-admired surveys, no one has appeared in the Top Ten more often than the Rev. Billy Graham, who has enjoyed that distinction 59 times. ...

    “The field of education reinforces racism, white supremacy, white privilege and exceptionalism upon which western civilization is built” Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., Barack Obama’s former pastor, came into the spotlight during the 2008 presidential election when he drew harsh criticism for his comments damning America and using anti-semitic language. Wright spoke on the evening of Nov. 17 at the Vanderbilt Divinity School. In his talk titled “Prophetic Faith for Social Justice”, Wright spoke to a crowd of 100 about the need for a new theology that can lift African Americans from the despair of exploitation, war and racism. “The...

For an answer, Obama ignores ubiquitous Palestinian calls to kill Jews. He tells us that the only real solution to this hate is “two states for two people; a democratic Jewish state living side-by-side in peace and security with a viable, independent and sovereign Palestinian state” (ibid). That’s ridiculous. Palestinian’ aren’t talking about two states. They’re not talking about peace. They’re not talking about side-by-side. They’re talking about murdering Jews....

    In a wide-ranging conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson, President Obama suggested that Christians who take their religion the most seriously often adopt an “us versus them” mentality. In the interview, published in the Nov. 5 issue of The New York Review of Books, the president lamented “the fact that here in the United States, sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an ‘us versus them,’ and those are sometimes the loudest voices. “But sometimes I think you also get frustrated with kind of the wishy-washy, more liberal versions where anything goes,” Mr. Obama said, referring to Ms. Robinson. “How...

    The controversial religious leader Jeremiah Wright compared Native Americans to Palestinians at the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March on the National Mall on Saturday, going so far as to assert that “Jesus was a Palestinian." Wright, who once served as pastor to President Obama, was one of several hours' worth of speakers in Washington, D.C., for an event called “Justice or Else!” that sought to channel the energy of the Black Lives Matter movement. Wright placed the event in historical context. “The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried...
