    Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald apologized today for mistakenly saying in a videotaped exchange with a homeless man that he had served in the special forces, though his service was entirely with the 82nd Airborne Division. "Secretary McDonald has apologized for the misstatement and noted that he never intended to misrepresent his military service," a White House officials told ABC News. "We take him at his word and expect that this will not impact the important work he's doing to promote the health and well-being of our nation's veterans." The exchange with the homeless man was part of a report...

    BUSTED: We Have Axelrod’s Father’s Communist Party Membership #ObamaLovesAmerica Gotnews.com has exclusively discovered David Axelrod’s father’s Communist Party membership. David Axelrod’s book, “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics,” details his very close relationship with his father, Joseph. He repeatedly told Charlie Rose that his father believed in the American dream. In fact, Axelrod’s father, Joseph, was a card-carrying communist. He’s listed as a member of the Communist Party for the 1936 general election. Axelrod briefly mentions his father’s Communist views in his book but only in passing and in a section about how he got to visit the former Soviet Union. Axelrod...

The organization supports the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, which presents the country’s highest military award for acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty.NBC brass suspended Williams last week for six months without pay after he was caught lying about being on a military helicopter that was hit by...

    Executive orders are numbered; memoranda are not. Memoranda are always published in the Federal Register after proclamations and executive orders. And under Executive Order 11030, signed by President Kennedy in 1962, an executive order must contain a "citation of authority," saying what law it's based on. Memoranda have no such requirement.http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/12/16/obama-presidential-memoranda-executive-orders/20191805/

    Contrary to popular belief, there is no satisfaction in being able to say, “I told you so.” This is especially so with Iraq, where recent events are enough to sicken one’s stomach. Yet it still must be said: those who opposed the George W. Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq in March 2003 — not to mention his father’s war on Iraq in 1991 and the sanctions enforced through the administration of Bill Clinton — were right. The noninterventionists predicted a violent unraveling of the country, and that’s what we’re witnessing. They agreed with Amr Moussa, chairman of the Arab League,...

    Lying used to be an offense that caused people to stop trusting and believing you. Now, it’s a “mistake” that’s to be weighed against the liar’s virtues before deciding if he is to be trusted. I noticed this in my law practice. When I first started out, you hit the litigation jackpot if you could show that the opposing party had lied about any semi-material fact. If you showed this in the pre-trial stages, opposing counsel usually would settle the case for peanuts. If you showed it during trial, the judge or the jury would slam the lying party. As...

    Exaggerated war stories around military installations and veteran’s hangouts are nothing new and probably as old as wars themselves. Many brave men want to be hero’s by fighting in great battles. Shakespeare’s Henry V gave a rousing St Crispin’s Day address to his troops, just as the real Henry had done some 200 years earlier. Each leader, the real and the imagined, had to encourage his “Band of Brothers” to fight the French in spite of the existence of overwhelming, 4-1 odds.

    Culture: In remarks at a prayer meeting Thursday, President Obama implied Christianity, just like Islam, is filled with people who "hijack religion for their own murderous ends." This is the progressive disease of moral equivalence at its worst. In recent days and weeks, the world has watched grimly as the horrific barbarity of fundamentalist Islam has been put on full display. With routine beheadings, crucifixions, tortures, mass killings of civilians, burying children alive, and, most recently, burning a prisoner alive and filming his death agony to the approving yells of onlookers, it's clear something is horribly wrong within Islam.

    Williams, the anchor of the "NBC Nightly News," apologized on Wednesday for claiming -- as recently as last Friday -- that he'd been aboard a helicopter that was "forced down after being hit by an RPG." The incident happened on March 24, 2003. A Chinook helicopter was forced down by enemy fire. But Williams was not aboard. Stars and Stripes reported on Wednesday that "Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter," one that "took no fire and landed later beside the damaged helicopter due to an impending sandstorm from the Iraqi desert."

The article, called "Why I Chose to Speak Out," slams anyone who questions her story. The fact that she accused someone of rape, she explains, means that her account is completely accurate and if you question it, you are a misogynist. In other words, accusing someone of rape is the equivalent of proving they raped you. Recounting her thoughts when writing a nationally-published book available to...

A passage from Obama’s 2006 autobiography, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream, he makes a very strong case for why illegal immigration suppresses wages.

    Crime: By rolling the red carpet out for black "leader" Al Sharpton, President Obama spits in the eye of every police officer — white, black or whatever. A federal war on police begins. Scholar Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute's City Journal charges that "President Obama betrayed the nation" and "perverted his role as the leader of all Americans and as the country's most visible symbol of the primacy of the law" in his comments after a grand jury found no evidence of wrongdoing by white police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of black suspect Michael Brown. "The testimony...

    Alleviating hunger and poverty won’t end jihad terrorism. The Pope here is repeating the oft-refuted notion that poverty causes terrorism. CNS News noted in September 2013 that “according to a Rand Corporation report on counterterrorism, prepared for the Office of the Secretary of Defense in 2009, ‘Terrorists are not particularly impoverished, uneducated, or afflicted by mental disease. Demographically, their most important characteristic is normalcy (within their environment). Terrorist leaders actually tend to come from relatively privileged backgrounds.’ One of the authors of the RAND report, Darcy Noricks, also found that according to a number of academic studies, ‘Terrorists turn out...

    On Monday night, after the release of the grand jury verdict rejecting indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of 18-year-old black man Michael Brown, President Obama took to the microphones. “We need to recognize that this is not just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America,” he said. “[T]here are still problems and communities of color aren't just making these problems up.” Obama was wrong, at least in the case of Darren Wilson. In viewing thousands of pages of FBI interviews and grand jury testimony, it becomes eminently clear that many members of...

    Obama’s Lawless Amnesty Tests Our Republic Judicial Watch Victory: Obama Gives Up Fast and Furious Documents President GruberObama Jet-Setting Costs Taxpayers Obama’s Lawless Amnesty Tests Our Republic I write this late Friday after an extraordinarily busy week at Judicial Watch (see below). Honest Americans are still gasping from President Obama’s speech last night announcing his own amnesty program, based on no legal authority, for at least five million illegal aliens. I warned you last week about Obama’s amnesty assault on our nation. Unfortunately, my summary needs no update from last week, but should reassure you that we are on the...

    The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, said Rep. Mike Thompson of St. Helena, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee. The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to approve making the report public. Thompson said the report “confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down...

    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...
  • The Islam ISIS Lie

    We are all driven by our belief systems. For instance, we know Christianity can and has propelled simple men to great heights of honor and integrity in the never ending struggle against evil. I offer America as an example. ISIS fighters have a belief system too, to which they devote their lives - Islam The one answer Obama and all other apologist will never be able to answer truthfully is this. What passage in the Koran contradicts the actions of ISIS? Tell me that MF'rs!!
