    On Tuesday night, the mother of Trayvon Martin praised Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia for having “the courage to lead the fight for common-sense gun legislation.” Numerous other speakers also raised the gun control issue at the DNC, too. But Wednesday night was clearly “gun night.” From Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) to former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey to former Representative Gabby Giffords and her husband, NASA Astronaut Mark Kelly to others, a string of speakers pushed for more gun control. When President Obama addressed the crowd he also pushed the notion of changing background checks...

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest falsely and repeatedly claimed at Thursday’s briefing that Barack Obama, not Ronald Reagan, was the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to win consecutive majorities of the popular vote. Even when he was corrected by a reporter, Earnest insisted Reagan did not get at least 50 percent of the vote twice. "I don’t think it's a coincidence that President Obama is actually the first president since President Eisenhower to win two national elections back-to-back, earning a majority vote from the American people," Earnest said.

    This entire speech presented a fictional reality, which makes perfect sense at a convention being held for the purpose of nominating the biggest liar ever to see the presidency Earlier today I talked about how the media will sometimes take their cues from Democrats. That can work the other way around, too. When the media establishes a dishonest narrative, a clever Democrat will not only run with the narrative but build on it. That’s basically what Obama did last night in his speech to the DNC. While Donald Trump’s acceptance speech last Thursday night was all about the problems America...

    Pesident Obama went all in for Hillary Clinton Wednesday, throwing down his presidential legacy and all his political and racial credentials to try to convince the disenfranchised, bitter "Berners" and rightly unenthused black voters to elect the most establishment and corrupt politician ever to run for the highest office. But as we've come to expect, in an Obama speech about, well, anything, it ended up being a whole lot more about himself than the subject at hand. And, frankly, with Clinton as the subject, it was probably a good move. In a mesmerizing video, Grabien highlights all the times Obama...

    President Barack Obama has allowed some 400,000 unskilled Central American migrants to pour into the nation’s schools, job-markets, welfare offices, hospitals and jails since 2012, according to government data. By the end of June, he had cleared the path for 214,982 “unaccompanied” youths plus 181,456 women and children to come in to the country since October 2012. That adds up to 396,428 migrants — with three months to go before the end of the 2016 fiscal year in October. The inflow is so large that it is greater than the number of African-American men who will turn 18 this year....

This is the night where she has her latest and best chance to make her case to undecided voters, clarify her vision for America, and cut into her massively high unfavorable ratings. Finally, the attention at the Democratic convention and in the news media will be on her, her message, and not just endorsements and speeches from powerful allies like Mike Bloomberg and President Barack Obama. Good luck with that. We already know who's going to dominate the headlines tomorrow morning in the end. And he happens...

    Don’t have fun and drink beer when it’s hot outside, Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said on Friday. Jarrett offered the advice during an organized Twitter chat aimed at advancing a Nanny State initiative called “Beat the Heat.” Twitter user @Mi_Astronauta offered advice that would appeal to most Americans. “Grab some beers and hit the pool,” Mi_Astronauta wrote. But the fun-hating Jarrett had another suggestion. "Actually beer isn't the best choice! How about a cooler full of refreshing water."

    Whenever President Obama feels defensive, he likes to talk about how the world has become more safe under his watch (with the implication that it's due to his own wise leadership). We first heard him speak that way during the summer of 2014, when the world seemed to be unraveling and critics were blaming him for the sad state of affairs. Obama said, "The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is...

  • USA on Track for Most Gun Sales This Year

    Terrorism fears appear to be pushing more Americans to buy guns. FBI data show this was the busiest June ever for firearms dealers. Tom Hand continues to be busy–at his gun and pawn shop in Daphne. “People are concerned with their own safety and are still interested in carrying guns for their own personal defense outside of their home,” said Tom Hand with Goldmine Pawn. The Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando last month marked the single largest mass shooting in American history. That helped make June the busiest June on record for gun dealers with background checks up nearly 40-percent...

    During her July 25 speech at the Democrat National Convention, Michelle Obama talked about moving into the White House and watching “big men with guns” take their daughters to school. She said this by describing life after taking up residence in the White House. She recalled her daughters “setting off for their first day at their new school,” adding, “I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls–just seven and ten years old–pile into those black SUVs with all those big men with guns.” The audience responded with a warm applause as Mrs. Obama talked about seeing...

    Just when it appeared that public interest was fading, celebrity developer Donald Trump has revived the theory that President Barack Obama was born overseas and helped expose the depth to which the notion has taken root—a New York Times poll Thursday found that a plurality of Republicans believe it. If you haven’t been trolling the fever swamps of online conspiracy sites or opening those emails from Uncle Larry, you may well wonder: Where did this idea come from? Who started it? And is there a grain of truth there? The answer lies in Democratic, not Republican politics, and in the...

    Instead, Obama has ignored the people of Iran, a population friendly to the United States and its ideals. His administration even declared the 2009 Green Movement - a popular protest against a probably-rigged presidential election - an internal affair of Iran that warranted no American input. He has failed to do anything for the Iranians, and has even tacitly betrayed them by negotiating with and legitimizing their theocratic government. The catastrophic nuclear deal with the rulers of Iran represented the latest in Obama's long series of failures in relation to the country. While it is true that the economic sanctions...
