    Chicago has some of the toughest gun-control laws in the country. It also has a new record for shooting deaths in a single day. The Windy City had nine shooting deaths on Wednesday — its highest rate of single-day fatalities in over a decade. On July 5, 2003, there were 10 homicides in the city. The Chicago Tribune did an extensive analysis of its records before reporting Wednesday’s grim milestone.

    WASHINGTON – Why won’t Republican leadership in Congress fight President Obama? It’s the question that frustrates 75 percent of GOP voters and an issue that has likely helped Donald Trump skyrocket in the polls. Now, WND has obtained a revealing look into the thought process of the congressional Republican elite during a candid email exchange with a Senate leadership aide. It showed why GOP leadership is apparently so reluctant to effectively confront Obama on such key issues as defunding executive amnesty, Obamacare and Planned Parenthood. The dialogue also revealed why Republican leadership employs a strategy of confronting the president with...

    Don’t you just hate it when the falcon can’t hear the falconer?So Trump signs the RNC pledge not to run as a spoiler. You would think today’s headline would be “Trump pledges not to facilitate a Hillary win.” Instead we get “Trump stumbles on foreign affairs.”Clearly the GOPe and MSM don’t get it yet: America doesn’t want another politician studied in the memes the media finds indicative of leadership qualities – such as a sharp creased trouser leg. The enduring popularity of The Donald continues to hijack media types like Peggy Noonan. In last week’s column, “America Is So In...

    For not doing their jobs, Obama defends Muslims but jails a Christian In May 2013, the Obama administration sued Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Illinois, because it fired Muslim truck drivers who refused to drive trucks that were carrying alcoholic beverages.However, earlier this week, the Obama administration pursued federal action against Kim Davis, a Christian court clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, who refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and a federal judge put her in jail.Here’s my take on both of these incidents: if someone refuses to do their job, they should be fired.

    Self | 9/3/2015 | LS
    In our election discussions I have been arguing that the rise of Trump reflects a de-emphasis in traditional ideological issues. Trump, as we all know, is hardly an issue-by-issue conservative. I have argued that he transcends many specific conservative positions by his love of America, a nationalistic pride, a commitment to saving our borders, and a kind of TR -type bluster. I think even most of his opponents would give him this much, I have pointed to the decline of ideology, but haven't really thought about how it occurred. And the answer lies---as with the answer to most our complaints---with...

Press Secretary Josh Earnest alleged that “the president’s prowess has been borne out in hundreds of rounds over the past six years where he has gone undefeated against every prior opponent. How likely is it that Jeter would be the only person to win against him?” Earnest brushed aside the possibility that a skilled professional athlete of Jeter’s caliber might have genuinely been a better golfer. “Let me point out that the president has more hours of...

    Once NATO’s formidable eastern anchor, Turkey is increasingly becoming a major problem for Washington policymakers and a contributor to the Mideast chaos. The change is all the remarkable since at the outset of the Obama Administration, the President saw then Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as one of his closest international friends. And, indeed, in 2009 Obama went to Turkey to make the first of two Mideast seminal speeches offering apologies to the Muslim world for what he saw as past U.S. mistakes with an invitation for cooperation. But in late August Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter publicly...

The Russian research ship Yantar has been tracked from the northern Atlantic near Canada since late August as it makes its way south toward Cuba. Defense officials familiar with reports on the Russian ship say the Yantar is believed to be gathering intelligence on underwater sensors and other equipment used by U.S. nuclear submarines based at Kings Bay, Georgia.

"While the president may be able to sustain a veto with the tepid, restricted and partisan support of one third of one House of Congress over Americans' bipartisan opposition, it will require a bipartisan Congress to strengthen our defenses in the Persian Gulf and to stand up to the inevitable Iranian violations of the agreement that will need to be addressed after he has left office,"...

    A blast from the past. Pentagon officials say the United States launched an air strike in Somalia to go after a terrorist suspect.In the strike early Monday, Somali police said three missiles hit a Somali town held by Islamic extremists, destroying a home and seriously injuring eight people.A Pentagon official said the U.S. military was going after an al-Qaida suspect in the town. As yet, there is no word on whether the suspect was hit. Who were they after? Revisit this post, about the (unsuccessful) U.S. gunship attack on AQ during the Ethiopian/Somali conflict in January 2007, for a list...

    Monday night at the GLACIER Conference in Anchorage, AK, President Barack Obama attempted to isolate those who question whether climate change is man-made saying they are “on their own shrinking island.” Obama said, “We know human activity is changing the climate that is beyond dispute. Everything else is politics.” [Snip] "The time to plead ignorance is surely past.”

    The state of Louisiana is in court fighting for its right to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business after it was caught selling aborted babies and their body parts. But the Obama administration thinks differently. The Planned Parenthood abortion business has filed a lawsuit against the state of Louisiana after Governor Bobby Jindal made the decision to yank its taxpayer funding. Today, in court papers filed the same day a 9th video showed the abortion company selling aborted babies, the Obama administration sided with Planned Parenthood in the lawsuit. AP has more on the Obama administration’s reaction today: The U.S....

    Thank You, Donald Trump, for forcing the in-your-face Obamas into the back seat of the mainstream media-led Public Relations vehicle It’s September 2015, in the newly unfurled AD era, AD meaning ‘After Donald’. Some are now noticing that when Donald Trump kicked off his campaign as a new kind of 2016 GOP presidential hopeful, he kicked President Barack Obama off the front page. Obama’s real campaign slogan was ‘Changing America by Fundamentally Transforming It’. The Donald’s: ‘Make America Great Again!’. There’s no competition in whose slogan has more crowd appeal. Up until Trump got out on the campaign trail talking...

    Senior State Department officials at the U.S. Embassy in Japan have been caught sending “sensitive” information over personal email accounts, subjecting the information to potential hacking attacks and other cyber threats, according to a new report by the department’s inspector general. Embassy staff, including the U.S. ambassador to Japan, were found to conducted “official business” via their personal email addresses, highlighting an issue of concern among national security experts and officials in the wake of disclosures about Hillary Clinton’s email habits during her tenure as secretary of state. The use of personal email among Obama administration officials has raised concerns...

    The Obama administration has embarked upon a path to reward decades of bad behavior by the Islamic Republic of Iran in the futile hope that Iran will become benevolent and cease its warlike actions and intentions toward the West in general and the U.S. and Israel in particular. As futile as the idea of negotiating a nuclear deal with the Ayatollahs seems to sober Americans and our allies today, we must first set the record straight on those policies of the past that Obama and his supporters say that they are determined to change: America has never had a “tough”...

    Tonight, Public Policy Polling gave the Rachel Maddow Show a sneak peek at their results of their August 28-30 poll to be released tomorrow. While the findings at the top of the poll are what we've come to expect from the Republican field - Donald Trump and Ben Carson - securing the top spots - what is more surprising is to find beltway-favored candidates Chris Christie and Rand Paul floundering at the bottom with barely any support. The poll also shows the tea party character of the Republican Party, with strong birther views and a dubious grasp of some key...
