  • How a Top Obama Crony Moved From Idaho To a $2 Million Washington Estate

    Long before Jim Messina became a trusted aide to President Barack Obama and one of the most powerful men in Washington, he was just a simple boy from Boise. Now, after working in politics for just over a decade, he lives in a lavish D.C. estate. How this happened is a classic Washington Cinderella story. Raised in Idaho by a single mother, Messina moved to Washington in 1995, in his mid-20s, to take a job as a legislative aide for Max Baucus, the conservative Democratic senator from Montana (now ambassador to China). Baucus supported George W. Bush-era personal and corporate...

    In the 1960s, Vice President Hubert Humphrey declared that if he had to endure the conditions of the ghetto, he "could lead a pretty good riot" himself, while Nixon ridiculed the Kerner Commission report that blamed the riots on "white racism."Nixon and George Wallace got 57 percent of the vote in 1968. And a strong stand for law and order helped to give the GOP a near quarter-century lock on the presidency.The law-and-order issue is lying there again, waiting to be picked up.

    If you ask around about Jim Messina in Washington, you will get an extremely wide range of reactions. Some believe he is brilliant; others think he’s ruthless. But there is one impression that everyone seems to share: “Jim is not afraid of anyone.” That isn’t a bad prerequisite for Messina’s next job. The 45-year-old Democrat, who organized Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and this year orchestrated British Prime Minister David Cameron’s spectacular, nail-biting win, is now getting into German politics. Messina has agreed to a consulting job in Berlin: He wants to help the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD) beat...

Manufactured by Spike’s Tactical in central Florida, the $1,395 AR-15 has a Bible verse etched into it that says “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.” Etched on the other is a symbol of a Crusader's cross from the Middle Ages.

    Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama on Friday welcomed Saudi Arabia's King Salman for a long-delayed first White House summit marked by warm public words, amid clashing views on Middle Eastern crises. Obama made the rare move of greeting the 79-year-old monarch at the doors of the White House, as he hailed the "longstanding friendship" between the two countries. Salman's inaugural visit as king -- originally scheduled for May and canceled by Riyadh -- had been billed as a way of putting relations back on a more stable footing. In the Oval Office, Obama was effusive, saying he wanted...

    The Veterans Administration (VA) has an enormous backlog of paperwork, and as a result, hundreds of thousands of veterans have died waiting for the VA to process their records. Meanwhile, over 10,000 records were deleted without processing, and the employees responsible were not disciplined. Those are the conclusions of a new report from the VA’s inspector general (IG). At the request of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, the IG undertook an investigation of a series of allegations made against the VA. The IG substantiated the allegations with only minor caveats.

    In government schools across America in communities being targeted to become “Blue Zones,” children may soon be chanting “Hara Hachi Bu” before eating their lunch — at least between the data-mining and intrusive scoring to determine “progress” in their physical, mental, and spiritual “well being.” The Japanese phrase, associated with the Eastern religion of Confucianism, translates roughly to “eat until you are 80 percent full.” Parents, meanwhile, will receive wide-ranging instructions covering everything from the food they eat and the “tribe” they associate with to the location in their home designated for sexual activity and even the size of their...

    Barack Obama, as chief law enforcement officer of the United States, is going to have to stop acting like a conscientious objector in this war on cops. Wednesday, another officer, in Fox Lake, Illinois, Lt. Charles "GI Joe" Gliniewicz, was gunned down. Last Friday, Darren Goforth, a Houston deputy sheriff, was shot 15 times by an alleged black racist. President Obama called the widow of Deputy Goforth, but he has yet to show the same indignation and outrage he exhibited at what happened to Trayvon Martin in Florida and Michael Brown in Ferguson. This year, 24 cops have been gunned...

    As tourist season winds down in Alaska, so does the sightseeing trip of America’s busiest tourist. The President heads back to the beltway bubble after three days in the wondrous Last Frontier. While here, he enjoyed spectacular autumn weather which he commemorated with many selfies on a stick. He danced, he held a fish, he hiked a glacier (thankfully not the Mendenhal Glacier, for that chunk of ice is, literally, the size of Rhode Island. Instead, he enjoyed one of the other 100,000 Alaskan glaciers). And, he renamed a mountain…our mountain…the tallest peak on the North America continent. Unlike most...

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...

    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...

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...

    Thus ends a breathtaking performance of Republican failure theater. Once upon a time, knowing that your party controlled both chambers of Congress would have given you great comfort that a terrible treaty negotiated with a terrorist power could never become law in the United States. I think this makes it official: I’m on the Trump bandwagon. Hail Caesar. What’d the GOP get out of all this? What did their huge advantage in the House and their eight-seat majority in the Senate ultimately amount to in terms of concessions? It’s one thing to lose a momentous fight on foreign policy, ceding...

    Former US military commander David Petraeus said Wednesday fighters from Al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate could be used to take on the Islamic State group as he warned that his nation's hesitation to enforce "red lines" in Syria had damaged US credibility. The decorated four-star general said a controversial move to harness fighters from a group linked to Al-Qaeda -- which was responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks -- was "an option that has some prospect for achievement". Petraeus, who was feted for changing the course of the Iraq war in 2007, said the focus was not on cooperating with the...

    A little late to the party: Somewhere in the murky mists of a future, which is fast becoming the present, Obama the Ice Man, Cometh. Polar bears will no longer be stranded on ice floes because the American government is sending the U.S. Coast Guard to the rescue in their very own icebreakers In fighting off Russia, which planted its flag under the Arctic sea bed back in 2007, the Obama administration is set to remove 3,000 troops from Alaska but will be building ice breakers ready to hit the water in 2020. Take that, Vladimir Putin, if the kind...

    Deal ‘will never be forgotten in the Middle East’ Dick Cheney called the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran a “train wreck” that will never be forgotten and characterized it as a betrayal of U.S. allies in the Middle East during an interview with the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday. “I cannot explain [President Obama’s] motives other than he thinks this is going to be a great legacy for his presidency,” said Cheney. “I think it’s going to be a train wreck, and he’s not going to want to claim it down the road. He’ll have to find a way...

    On Tuesday, the Fox News Channel’s “Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly criticized the “double standard” between the treatment of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Tea Party, stating with the Black Lives Matter movement, “suddenly the actions of a few do not apply to the many” like they did with the Tea Party. Kelly began by playing footage of a New Black Panther group chanting “Oink oink, bang bang” in front of a jail in Texas, which she said was “Just one of the angry and incendiary chants we have seen against police in recent months. … But so...

    The Obama administration now appears to have enough support in Congress to stave off Republican efforts to reject his controversial Iran nuclear deal, after a retiring Maryland Democratic senator came out Wednesday morning in favor of the pact. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., announced her support for the deal ahead of a speech on the agreement by Secretary of State John Kerry. She becomes the 34th senator to support the deal, giving President Obama enough backing to sustain a veto of a Republican bill opposing it, should that bill pass in a vote later this month.

    President Obama – who graduated Columbia University with a degree in political science – became an environmental and ecological expert Monday night in time to decry America’s contributions to global warming and the alleged melting of Arctic ice caps at this year’s GLACIER Conference, predicting a dire future for humanity. [Snip] Overall, the speech painted a fairly doom-and-gloom outlook for America and the rest of the world. So if you’re a Doomsday Prepper, here are a few excerpts from the president's speech explaining the climate-related disasters heading to a town near you:

    Milwaukee County Sherriff David A. Clarke Jr. criticized the idea that President Barack Obama’s call for reforming the police is helping law enforcement and is instead weakening “the institution of policing,” adding that the solution is to “fix the ghetto” and stop trying to “fix the police.” […] “Look, President Obama has breathed life into this ugly movement,” said Clarke. “And it is time now for good, law-abiding Americans to rise up, like they did in Houston around that Chevron station [where the deputy sheriff was murdered], an outpouring.” “But it just can’t be symbolic,” said the sheriff. “We now...
