    President Obama slammed Republicans Wednesday for continuing to war against his signature healthcare law five years in."It's working, despite countless attempts to repeal, undermine, defund and defame this law," Obama said in a speech commemorating the Affordable Care Act's anniversary of passage."We've made our share of mistakes since we passed this law, but we also know beyond a shred of doubt the law has worked," he said. "Deficits have been slashed, lives have been saved."It's been half a decade since Democrats in Congress passed the healthcare law and it remains arguably the most controversial piece of legislation passed during Obama's...

    Welp, that about wraps it up for the great Iranian diplomacy goose chase. The only way to justify letting Iran continue to enrich uranium is if UN inspectors can come and go as they please whenever they please to verify that Iran’s not cheating. Without snap inspections, there’s no way to verify. Now Obama gets to walk away.No, no, I’m kidding. Obama’s invested so much political capital in getting this deal done, even at the price of driving relations with Israel to the lowest point they’ve been in decades, that he’s got to see it through now. Contrary to...

    In newly released emails from when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton sent business-related emails to her staffers. Not only do these new emails prove that Ms. Clinton used her private email address to conduct business, which she vehemently denied two weeks ago, but it also proves that she lied about whether her employees used private email. The emails, obtained by the House committee investigating the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, show Mrs. Clinton emailing aides about whether she would survive the firestorm surrounding the attack and her perceived responsibility. "Did we survive the day?” she wrote to a...

    The Obama Record: The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he's been caught lying about family racism. In "Dreams from My Father," his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather's imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty. He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden "old man."

    SEATTLE (Tribune News Service) — President Barack Obama continues to boast that he runs “the most transparent administration in history” with a straight face. But the claim doesn’t even pass the giggle test. His administration has an abysmal record of prosecuting more whistleblowers than any predecessor. His administration’s compliance with the Freedom of Information Act has gotten worse, rather than better, the longer he is in office. And he routinely sidesteps the seasoned White House press corps to sit for interviews with the likes of YouTube stars. Add to the list of transgressions the new disclosure that former Secretary of...

    Ferguson is burning again, and there are two pools of blood soaking into the Missouri ground from police officers who were doing nothing more than their jobs. They will live, thankfully, but the shooters and the atmosphere that caused their near-deaths remains. That atmosphere was birthed from a lie, stoked by the media and fanned by the attorney general and the president, and every single one of them has some of that blood on their hands. “Hands up, don’t shoot” is a bigger lie than “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.” And just like 2013’s...

    Rising stock prices and home values pushed the net worth of U.S. households higher in the fourth quarter, a reassuring sign for the outlook for consumer spending. The increase added $1.52 trillion to the total wealth of American families, putting it at $82.91 trillion, a report by the Federal Reserve showed on Thursday. The increase in net wealth was the largest since the fourth quarter of 2013. While U.S. consumers have appeared somewhat shy in their spending habits in recent months, Thursday's data suggests their strengthening financial footing could help convince them to open their wallets more.

The United States has the most gun deaths of any industrialized nation. In addition, the number of injuries caused by guns is more than double the death number.

    Can America trust Hillary to decide what emails are fit for the public’s eyes? A short press conference held at the United Nations in an effort to tamp down a growing email scandal was vintage Hillary Clinton: long on self-righteous, self-aggrandizing assertions, and woefully short on anything resembling genuine information. Clinton made a brief opening statement, first addressing a subject that will undoubtedly be repeated ad nauseam once she makes her candidacy for the presidency official: she reminded Americans that while women have come very far, genuine equality has yet to be achieved. She then attacked Republicans for sending a...

After all the obfuscation, the only thing that one can...

    It is a matter of record that the Constitution was ratified as a strict, narrowly-defined enumeration of federal powers. Anything not specifically spelled out in it as a federal power is a federal power that does not exist, and that must be left to the state and local levels. The Framers identified each Congressional power in Article I, Section 8 (why would they do this if the General Welfare and Commerce clauses granted Congress a blank check to do whatever it wants?), and even added the 10th Amendment to further clarify that this is all it is authorized to do...

Says Lt. Gen. Flynn: “By that time, they probably had grown by about—I’d say close to doubling by that time. And we knew that.” This wasn’t what the Obama White House wanted to hear. So the administration cut off DIA access to the documents and instructed DIA officials to stop producing analyses based on them. Even this limited glimpse into the broader set of documents...

Several expressed concern for their safety should they choose to contradict that narrative publicly.

    Let’s be honest, the truth doesn’t matter anymore. It’s nice and quaint, even cute, to pretend it does, but it really doesn’t. Brian Williams’ fake war stories are not an outlier or even a blow to his credibility. They’re the new norm. Williams, the NBC News anchor and managing editor, had no reason to lie. When Williams inflated his own experiences in Iraq in 2003 he was acting like someone in the midst of an interview trying to live up to an inflated resume. But he had the job already. He was merely trying to inflate his image and impress...

    "NBC Nightly News" anchorman Brian Williams frequently fabricated a dramatic story that he was under enemy attack while reporting from Iraq. NBC is now investigating whether Williams also embellished events in New Orleans during his reporting on Hurricane Katrina. Williams always plays the hero in his yarns, braving natural and hostile human enemies to deliver us the truth on the evening news. Former CBS anchorman Dan Rather tried to pass off fake memos as authentic evidence about former President George W. Bush's supposedly checkered National Guard record. CNN news host Fareed Zakaria, who recently interviewed President Obama, was caught using...

    there are a lot of Brian Williams fabrications. Like, a lot. And yesterday’s suspension of the anchor over revelations that he exaggerated stories from the Iraq War allegedly stemmed from a larger internal investigation at NBC, with enough findings to compile a full dossier and enough allegations to prompt an overview of his expense accounts. ... sources at NBC say that Williams’ history of stretching the truth was well-known, and NBC execs had tried to curb his habits for the past decade: ... NBC was also investigating his expense accounts for reasons unknown

    Williams was not suspended for lying, but for getting caught, because refusing to tell the truth is normal procedure in the mainstream liberal media Brian Williams lied. It turns out he was not on a helicopter that was hit in Iraq. He was not caught in a war scenario, and if he had been, he probably would have soiled his pants, and cried big giant pacifist tears. He’s not the first to make such false claims, and he won’t be the last. I was in the United States Navy, saw a few interesting things, but when asked about my service,...

    There’s no question that this administration has lost all legitimacy and the stench of their numerous scandals is beginning to reach even the loftiest of America’s elites Last week Gallup CEO Jim Clifton took issue with the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) claim that unemployment in America was now hovering somewhere in the vicinity of 5.6%. Clifton said these numbers were “totally misleading” and maintains that the real percentage of unemployed Americans is closer to double the BLS figure. Apparently the BLS counts someone who is working two or three hours per week as employed. They do not count as...
  • Obama: 1 in 5 women in America have experienced rape or attempted rape

    “And more than 1 in 4 women has experienced some form of domestic violence.” Wow, just wow. Gone are the days that the president makes false claims that 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted while in college. Now 20 percent of all women in America have been raped or nearly raped. And 25 percent of American women — not just college women — have experienced domestic violence. Let’s just think about that for a minute. The current population of the U.S. is 316.1 million, with women comprising about half. That means there are about 158 million women and...

    In short, liberal thought is shot through with magical thinking “Can’t see the forest for the trees”, the old saying goes. That means that one’s vision is blocked by too close a proximity to the object in question, that details can obscure the bigger picture. Reality is lost in a forest of individual items, sometimes seemingly unconnected, but when viewed from a higher perspective form an interwoven tapestry, a greater whole. As Pontius Pilate asked of Jesus 2,000 years ago (or thereabouts) what is Truth? Truth is the agreement between reality and human expression, and human belief. Reality has been...

    Mark Twain wrote over 100 years ago “if you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed.”  And this gives the lie to NBC News anchor Brian Williams' fake apology for telling a heinous lie for twelve years.  Williams said to Star & Stripes, when they broke the story, “I would not have chosen to make this mistake,” Williams said. “I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.” Just what mistake would Williams have chosen to make?  He wasn’t aboard an Army helicopter that was hit...
