    An Obama administration representative took a shot at a well-known conservative college Thursday, saying the school wasnít included on its much-heralded new ďCollege ScorecardĒ because it isnít a real two-to-four year college. Hillsdale College, a 1,500-student liberal arts college in Michigan, is ranked by U.S. News and World Reports as the 67th-best national liberal arts college in the country.

    NAIROBI, Kenya, July 21 (UPI) -- An anti-gay political party in Kenya plans to protest against U.S. President Barack Obama by greeting him with 5,000 "totally naked" protesters for his "open and aggressive support for homosexuality." The Republican Liberty Party's "main objective is for him to see and understand the difference between a man and woman," according to a party statement. The protests will take place Wednesday and Thursday in Nairobi's Freedom Corner within the Uhuru Park starting at 10 a.m. Homosexual acts are illegal in Kenya and can be punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment.
  • Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database

    A key part of President Obamaís legacy will be the fedís unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of ďracial and economic justice.Ē Unbeknown to most Americans, Obamaís racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school ó all to document ďinequalitiesĒ between minorities and whites. This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already...

    Today, there are hundreds of thousands of men and women working overseas on various contracts and making good money, probably two to three times what they can make in the United States. On top of that, they may even be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, which in 2014 meant that the first $99,200 of their total income earned overseas was excluded from being taxed at the Federal level (itís higher for 2015). However Ė and I canít emphasize this enough Ė they are earning it! Naturally, the best-paying jobs are in high-threat environments such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria,...

    A little-known party has sought permission to show US President Barack Obama the differences between a man and a woman through a nude protest. The peaceful demonstration against homosexuality will begin at 10 am at the Freedom Corner, on July 22 and 23, said Republican Liberty party leader Vincent Kidala. "The procession shall be carried out by approximately 5,000 totally naked men and women to protest over Obama's open and aggressive support for homosexuality," Kidala said in a letter to the county commander on Monday.

    Obama has been warned not to speak about gay rights while on his first presidential visit to Kenya later this month otherwise he will be 'told to shut up and go home'. The country's religious leaders and legislators have said the President risks opening 'floodgates of evil' by promoting LGBT rights, adding 'we have a responsibility to protect our children.' However, buoyed by the Supreme Court ruling which effectively legalized same sex marriage across the U.S., a White House spokesman said Obama will do nothing of the sort.

    When he visits his fatherís homeland in Africa later this month, President Obama is expected to run into vocal opposition over his administrationís high-profile promotion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues. Obamaís trip to Kenya, his first as president, is scheduled to take place four weeks after the White House was bathed in rainbow colors to mark the U.S. Supreme Court ruling declaring that same-sex marriage is a right. At a small pro-family demonstration at the parliament in Nairobi Monday, organized by the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya, participants called on the American president not to raise the subject...
