  • Sowell: 'Just Asking'

    Creators Syndicate ^ | May 19, 2015 | Thomas Sowell
    In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric and disregard of reality. One of the ways of fighting poverty, he proposed, was to "ask from society's lottery winners" that they make a "modest investment" in government programs to help the poor. Since free speech is guaranteed to everyone by the First Amendment to the Constitution, there is nothing to prevent anybody from asking anything from anybody else. But the federal government does not just "ask" for money. It takes the money it wants in taxes, usually...

    Despite his proclamation that he "saved the world from a Great Depression," the fact is that Obama will be the first President ever to not see a single year of 3% GDP growth - but only cynical fiction-peddlers would mention facts at a time like this. In yet more legacy-defending narrative, Obama told The NYTimes today that his biggest failure was being unable to sell his success in putting the American economy back on track to the American people (no matter the actual realities) careful to blame Republicans for slowing growth "by a percentage point or two." And then in...

Last week reporters confirmed that the Obama administration has reversed itself on a number of commitments made to Congress during last summer's push to get support for the Iran deal. Specifically the AP confirmed that the administration intends to give Iran indirect access the U.S. financial system and Reuters confirmed that Washington is no longer labeling Iranian...

The book, which created controversy for what some considered an unfair portrayal of President Barack Obama, elicited rare public condemnations from senior officials, including former US special envoy to the Middle Easy Martin Indyk.

There is no one passing out at her rallies. She’s raising less money than her challenger Bernie Sanders.

    Americans sensed there was still a bit of tension between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when the latter leader cancelled their planned meeting this month. The Obama administration claimed to be blindsided by the announcement, but Israels government insists they warned the White House last week. Sources reveal that the prime minister decided to forgo the meeting because he was frustrated over a delay in defense aid. Yet, others say he simply didnt want to visit during the peak of the U.S. presidential campaign. The bad blood between Obama and Netanyahu dates back a few years ago...

Obama made the remarks in an interview with The Atlantic magazine.

"I don't believe in regulations for regulations sake," he told the governors. "[The idea that] somehow that I get a kick out of big government, is simply not the case." "It's not...

    CNBC ^ | 02/07/2016 | Jeff Cox
    For more than seven years, Federal Reserve officials have touted their progress toward achieving "full employment," with the most recent target a 4.9 percent unemployment rate. With Friday's nonfarm payrolls report showing that the goal has been achieved, perhaps the Fed can raise the "Mission Accomplished" banner along with a welcome mat to the world of "full employment." The jobless rate last reached this level in February 2008, following a run from June 2005 to April 2008 during which unemployment never eclipsed 5 percent. Getting a "4-handle" on the number -- using Wall Street lingo -- was supposed to represent...

We all know that is bogus as they don't count the millions who are unemployed but are not looking for work. How do they get away with giving out false information? Of course we know the main stream media won't challenge them but what about our pundits and politicians?

    One of the "few regrets" of his presidency, President Obama said dolefully in his State of the Union speech, was "that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better." Were he endowed with "the gifts of Lincoln or Roosevelt," he remarked, he could have done more to bridge the partisan divide. But he pledged to "keep trying to be better so long as I hold this office." Did you experience a touch of deja vu when the president said that?

He was hired by the University of Chicago when they learned he had been given a book contract on race and law directly after graduating from Harvard. There was no book - just the contract, which he later reneged on. This is not the normal level of accomplishment for a University of Chicago professor or even...

However, as the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) has shown, Obama skips more than half of his daily intelligence briefings. The data comes from the White House itself, which has admitted Obama's absence but has said he reads the material on his iPad.

    The surge of illegal immigrant children continued unabated in November, pushing the Obama administration to announce emergency measures to try to handle a problem it thought it had solved earlier this year. Two months into the new fiscal year, the number of unaccompanied minors jumping the border and getting caught is at an all-time high. So far, the U.S. Border Patrol has picked up over 10,500 — more than twice the number at the same point last year. The number of families trying to cross also has surged, with more than 12,500 people caught — a 173 percent increase over...
  • Iraqis think the U.S. is in cahoots with the Islamic State, and it is hurting the war

    On the front lines of the battle against the Islamic State, suspicion of the United States runs deep. Iraqi fighters say they have all seen the videos purportedly showing U.S. helicopters airdropping weapons to the militants, and many claim they have friends and relatives who have witnessed similar instances of collusion. Ordinary people also have seen the videos, heard the stories and reached the same conclusion — one that might seem absurd to Americans but is widely believed among Iraqis — that the United States is supporting the Islamic State for a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do...

    FULL TITLE: Obama's inconsistent claim on the 'frequency' of mass shootings in the U.S. compared to other countries “The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world, and there’s some steps we could take, not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings, but to improve the odds that they don’t happen as frequently.”–President Obama, interview that aired on CBS Evening News, Dec. 2, 2015“With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously, my heart goes out to the families of those impacted. … I...

    In his speech at the 122nd International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference in Chicago on Tuesday, President Obama pleaded with the American people not to believe that he is out to take their guns away. Obama called it a sad irony that after a shooting happens the purchase of guns and ammunition go up. "And some of you who are watching certain television stations or listening to certain radio programs," Obama began, "Please do not believe this notion

    President Obama now says he never believed in the $500-million program to train and equip the moderate Syrian opposition. The administration last week halted the failed program, which ended up training fewer than 100 Syrians, all but four or five of whom deserted or died after the Americans tried to turn them into anti-ISIS fighters. Steve, this is why Ive been skeptical from the get-go about the notion that we were going to effectively create this proxy army inside Syria, Obama told CBS Steve Kroft during an interview for 60 Minutes.

    The bologna surrounding the Nuclear Iran Deal was sliced even more thinly on Monday, Sept. 21. Remember the alarms raised when a version of one of the confidential secret side deals obtained and reported on by the Associated Press revealed that Iran would be permitted to inspect its own Parchin military site? At least some of Irans nuclear weapons activity is suspected to have taken place at Parchin. On Monday, most of the headlines about the Parchin inspections revealed that what had been suspected was, in fact, the case. Tehran said that Iranians independently collected samples at Parchin with no...

    The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command, according to the news outlet, two senior CENCOM intelligence analysts, who work for the Defense Intelligence Agency, sent a written complaint to the DODs IG alleging that reports were being altered to portray the terror groups as weaker than they actually were. Some of these changed assessments were then used to brief President Obama. Over 50 analysts have come forward to support the claim. The reports may have been changed to fit the Obama administrations narrative that ISIS was being degraded through the U.S. led air campaign and...

    Its being called a revolt by intelligence pros who are paid to give their honest assessment of the ISIS warbut are instead seeing their reports turned into happy talk. More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military's Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaedas branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned. The complaints spurred the Pentagons inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how...

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Obama claimed that ISIS was only a jayvee team even as it was capturing Iraqi cities. Now he wants us to believe that Iran is just another jayvee team even as its taking over Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Like the rest of his Iran deal talking points, the one about Irans tiny military budget is false, and not only is it false, but his claim about how small Irans military budget keeps changing. A few weeks ago, in...
