    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?

    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.

    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.

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...

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”...

Today in the 49th state, the president is carrying out folly of his own. Russia's price tag for Alaska in 1867 was $7.2 million — or 2 cents an acre for a land area twice the size of Texas. At the time, it was seen as an inflated price, but Alaska was soon recognized as strategically important for national security and rich with natural resources — first gold, then oil and gas.

Earlier this month, the pro-life organization released a video catching a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies. The video provides evidence showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die. Today’s 28-minute supplemental video provides additional proof of that and also shows how Planned Parenthood is making and...

    President Barack Obama on Monday will officially restore Denali as the name of North America's tallest mountain, ending a 40-year battle over what to call the peak that has been known as Mount McKinley. The symbolic gesture comes at the beginning of a three-day trip to Alaska where Obama hopes to build support for his efforts to address climate change during his remaining 16 months in office.

    President Obama on Monday will announce a plan to rename Alaska’s Mount McKinley to Denali, the name that nearby natives have long used. By taking action to officially name the 20,000-foot peak Denali, Obama will take the Alaskan Natives side in a dispute that has stretched on for more than a century. “Generally believed to be central to the Athabascan creation story, Denali is a site of significant cultural importance to many Alaska Natives,” the White House said in a Sunday fact sheet. “The name ‘Denali’ has been used for many years and is widely used across the state today.”...

    Sheriff David Clarke placed the blame for the execution of Harris County deputy Darren Goforth squarely upon President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder. Sheriff Clarke joined Judge Jeanine Pirro last night on Justice with Judge Jeanine. The Milwaukee County Sheriff said that Obama and Holder laid the groundwork for “this war on police” by supporting ‘activists’ who have disparaged law enforcement based upon a set of lies. “I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic with what’s going on and I’m not going to stick my head in the sand about it. I said last December...

    The DNC introduced to a reality TV trained world, a messiah with a bogus message of Hope and Change In a surrealistic world the pope’s coming to America is somewhat like Cleopatra coming to Mark Antony. Protocol and pomp and ceremony aside, why would Christ’s Vicar on Earth come to pay homage to a president who is unabashedly the world’s top champion of abortions, including partial birth abortions; whose party refuses to defund Planned Parenthood whose organization sells body parts of aborted babies on the black market; and whose presidency is driven by a soul-corroding hatred of the country he...

    “The Constitution is the guideline I will never abandon.” — George WashingtonThe United states of America was born out of a resolve to protect the freedoms of the individual from the tyranny of the state. Its Constitution was written to safeguard those freedoms at all costs—ad infinitum. America’s Founding Fathers were excellent physicians who could fully detect the disease of tyranny in all its forms. They left the American people the Constitution as a preventive vaccine to eliminate this cancer. Therefore, upholding the Constitution and its firm stance against tyranny or any government or enterprise, foreign or domestic that seeks...

    Results for some of the states that participated in Common Core-aligned testing for the first time this spring are out, with overall scores higher than expected though still below what many parents may be accustomed to seeing. Full or preliminary scores have been released for Connecticut, Idaho, Missouri, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. They all participated in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, one of two groups of states awarded $330 million by the U.S. Department of Education in 2010 to develop exams to test students on the Common Core state standards in math and English language arts. Scores in...

    The more one knows about the Iran Deal, the more obvious it becomes that it is not a deal so much as it is a fraud. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of a fraud is “something that is meant to look like the real thing in order to trick people.” That precisely describes the Iran Deal. Virtually every claim made for it is either not true or insignificant. There are no “anytime, anywhere” inspections, as Americans were promised during the negotiations.No American or Canadian inspectors will be allowed into Iran.The agreement obligates all the parties, including the...

    This strikes me as, um, problematic, as all the kids say. An FBI "A-team" is leading the "extremely serious" investigation into Hillary Clinton's server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to "gathering, transmitting or losing defense information," an intelligence source told Fox News. The section of the Espionage Act is known as 18 US Code 793. A separate source, who also was not authorized to speak on the record, said the FBI will further determine whether Clinton should have known, based on the quality and detail of the material, that emails passing through her server contained...
