    A White House reporter asked spokesman Josh Earnest whether President Obama enjoyed himself at an infrastucture photo-op earlier Tuesday in Virginia, mocking Obamas claim last week about not visiting the border crisis because he wasnt interested in photo ops. The assembled press corps laughed as Earnest asserted Obama was in good spirits. And is he likely to be just as unhappy with the photo op he has planned later this week on infrastructure? the reporter asked. A flustered Earnest said he didnt understand the question. Im getting back to his blowing off photo ops on the border, the reporter said....

    The number of foreigners who successfully filed asylum claims in the United States almost tripled from 2012 to 2013, up to 30,393. Thats 10 times the number from 2008, when President Barack Obama was elected, and it is evidence his immigration officials are approving most of the asylum requests from the growing wave of Central American migrants. If you came illegally to the U.S. seeking asylum in 2013, you had better than a four-in-five chance of successfully filing an asylum claim. Thats up from a three-in-five chance in 2008. The migrants include mothers with children, and youths who have been...

    Wow. A reputable poll shows that the public believes Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Worse than Richard M. Nixon, driven from the presidency by Watergate? Much. Worse than Jimmy Carter, for decades the very symbol of the feckless chief executive? Loads. Worse than George W. Bush, still a lightning rod on the left and a symbol of disappointment on the right? Definitely. These startling poll results set loose the predictable reaction: A flurry of told-you-so nods on the right and a fusillade of this-tells-us-nothing assertions on the left. For once, they're both right. Obama is...

    As we celebrate the Fourth of July, who can argue that our democracy is working the way the Founders intended? And who can deny that most of the blame for dysfunction must fall to the Republican Party? George Washington distrusted all political parties. He warned in his farewell address that, as they alternated power, parties would act in the spirit of revenge rather than, presumably, in the best interests of the nation. The disorders and miseries that resulted, Washington feared, would inevitably threaten democracy. Whatever the motivation, Republicans have paralyzed our government in a way that would have shocked...

    After previously saying Americas borders are more secure than ever, the White House on Tuesday seemingly blamed Republicans for apparent holes along the southern boundary, evidenced by the flood of unaccompanied children streaming into the U.S. from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere. White House press secretary Josh Earnest challenged Republicans, if they are truly concerned about border security, to back the comprehensive immigration reform package. If we really wanted to solve this problem, one good way to do it is for those Republicans to get on board and support common sense immigration reform, Mr. Earnest told reporters.

He says that's the same message the United States is sending. But Obama says if Iran comes into the conflict solely as an armed force backing the Shiite-led government, its involvement would probably worsen the situation.

    The Internal Revenue Service is required by federal law to keep records of all agency emails and to print out hard copies of the emails to make sure they get saved in the event of a computer glitch. The IRS recently claimed that it lost 24,000 of 67,000 emails that ex-official Lois Lerner sent between 2009 and 2011, due to a computer crash. The IRS, which agreed to turn over all of Lerners emails to the House Committee on Ways and Means, specifically lost emails Lerner sent to other Obama administration agencies and the White House.

    President Obama just can't seem to help himself. Over and over again, he makes exaggerated or false claims about guns and crime. Last year Obama kept asserting the bogus numbers such as 40 percent of all gun purchases take place without a background check. Besides the study being based on a tiny survey it was started before the Federal background check law went into effect. Moreover, the 40 percent figure referred to all transfers, not just sales, and the vast majority of transfers took place within families through gifts and inheritances. Then, for good measure, Obama added an extra 4...

Indeed one of the powers that helped defeat Hitler was itself a dictatorship that only declared war on Hitler after having been invaded. Adolph Hitler didnt suddenly become a dictator in 1939 or even 1941. He had been a dictator for years before war broke out. While he didnt start out as such, soon after getting power legitimately...

    The spiritual leader of the Taliban, Mullah Mohammed Omar, rarely makes public statements. Chased from his perch atop the Supreme Council of Afghanistan weeks after 9/11, he has spent the last dozen years in hiding, reportedly in Pakistan. He watched as Operation Enduring Freedom sought to bring democracy to his native land. Since the first step in that exercise was to attack Afghanistans terrorist core, he saw his home in Kandahar bombed, killing his stepfather and son. Such were the events back when the United States was serious about winning a war on terror. The remaining years of the...

It may seem melodramatic to compare the damage Barack Obama is doing to 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and the White House being burned during the war of 1812, but in a sense he's worse than any of those calamities because he's a purely self-inflicted wound. It's not a sneak attack from the Japanese laying us low this time; it's the man our nation willingly chose to lead us not once, but twice. It's bad enough that Barack Obama is not qualified...

    Obama should have read this before he started negotiating with the Taliban. The US will make no concessions to terrorists. It will not pay ransoms, release prisoners, change its policies or agree to other acts that might encourage additional terrorism. U.S. Policy and Response to Terrorists Since no country is immune to terrorism, it is imperative that governments have the appropriate policies, intelligence and flexible response options to deal effectively with terrorist acts. Trained personnel and programs must be in place before, during and after each crisis, both to respond to the problem and to answer inevitable criticism in the...

Obama's mission is to cram his radical socialist/progressive dream for America down our throats. Obamas reign of terror is but a mere preview of things to come if the MSM and Democrats are successful in duping Americans into handing Hillary Clinton the keys to the Oval Office. Just...

    An unbelievable moment in American history occurred in the White House Rose Garden when President Barack Obama smiled very perceptibly as Robert Bergdahl, father of Bowe, uttered the famous Islamic war cry of victory for Allah! Cliq on the video link below to watch an American presidents expression of glee as Bergdahl says: bismillah-al-rahman-al-rahim. This Arabic phrase meaning in the name of Allah the most gracious, the most merciful, was translated into English by Walid Shoebat, a Middle Eastern scholar who left the Islamic tradition and came to America, converting to Christianity. (1) Im your father, Bowe, said Robert Bergdahl...
  • The Meaning of Treason

    The report on Fox News that Sergeant Bergdahl at one point during his captivity declared himself a mujahid, or warrior for Islam, and may even have been allowed to carry a weapon puts at a premium an understanding of treason. Sergeant Bergdahl hasnt been accused of treason and would be considered innocent until proven otherwise. The burden is always and only on the accusers. But all the more reason to understand what treason is and why it is so special under American law. Treason is the only crime the Constitution pre-empts Congress from defining. Its also the only crime to...
  • White House: No evidence Bergdahl fraternized with Taliban

    A senior White House aide said Thursday he had seen no evidence to confirm a report that rescued Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl converted to Islam, fraternized with the Taliban, and declared jihad during nearly five years of captivity. We have seen no evidence of that, deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken told CNN when asked about a Fox News report about Bergdahls conduct while imprisoned by the Taliban.
  • Good enough for government: 25% of ObamaCare signups have serious problems

    Ineptitude: Millions of people could be in for a rude surprise later this year when they discover they aren't eligible for ObamaCare, or are getting too big a subsidy, thanks to another failed ObamaCare promise. In early September, administration officials declared that the ObamaCare "data hub" was ready to roll. This hub was central to making ObamaCare work, since it was supposed to verify citizenship, income and other information needed to determine eligibility and the level of insurance subsidies available. More important, it was all supposed to happen in real time, right when people were filling out their online application...

    Has there ever before been an Obama scandal that was still getting worse by the hour, days after the story broke? The new lie about the Taliban supposedly threatening Obama into violating U.S. law lasted, what, two hours tops before it fell apart? Is there anything the White House has told us, from last weekend through yesterday, that actually held up? I'm having a hard time thinking of anything they said that turned out to be completely true. Bergdahl wasn't captured in battle, he didn't serve with distinction, he wasn't dying in captivity, Obama didn't have to break the law...

    BRUSSELS Defense and intelligence officials told senators at a classified briefing on Wednesday that they kept secret from Congress the pending swap of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban prisoners because they feared for his life if the deal became public, a senior administration official said Thursday. The Senators were told, separate and apart from Sgt. Bergdahls apparent deterioration in health, that we had both specific and general indications that Sgt. Bergdahls recovery and potentially his life could be jeopardized if the detainee exchange proceedings were disclosed or derailed, the official said in a statement. Several senators...

    How can anyone not see that Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is an enemy of the United States? Many of us have been saying this for years now, because the signs are evident that this man does not like America and is actively working to tear down our constitutional foundations, our freedoms, our military, our energy sector, our borders, our medical and health insurance systems and American way of life. He has broken our laws and spit on the limits of his power at every turn, and yet the despicable media and his fellow-traveling, commie Democrats have spun...

    It is hard to believe, but even after five years of ruling, the Obama administration still reeks of incompetence. It behaves like a novice administration. Every excuse was thrown out, every justification was made, as -- in an increasing panic -- the Obama administration saw what they viewed as a probable publicity coup, become one of the examples of 'terrible optics' we read about. First, we heard from Hagel that Bowe Bergdahl's health was in danger. Oh, wait, no, it wasn't. NEXT. Next, we heard that Bergdahl was a soldier who served with honor and distinction, and therefore, we HAD...
