    UNITED NATIONS (AP) In a closing dispatch to the world he's tried to shape, President Barack Obama conceded Tuesday that the United States and other major powers have only limited ability to solve the world's most profound problems, including Syria's civil war. He lamented the "cycles of conflict and suffering" that seem to kick in every time humanity finally seems to be getting it right. "Perhaps that's our fate," Obama said in his last speech to the U.N. General Assembly. Four months before leaving office, Obama called for a "course correction" to ensure that the unstoppable forces of globalization...

    A 76-year-old veteran committed suicide on Sunday in the parking lot of the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center on Long Island, where he had been a patient, according to the Suffolk County Police Department. Peter A. Kaisen, of Islip, was pronounced dead after he shot himself outside Building 92, the nursing home at the medical center. The hospital is part of the Veterans Affairs medical system, the nations largest integrated health care organization, which has been under scrutiny since 2014, when the department confirmed that numerous patients had died awaiting treatment at a V.A. hospital in Phoenix. Officials there had...
  • How Obama Hoodwinked the Supreme Court on Obamacare

    American Thinker ^ | August 22, 2016 | Hollis Hurd
    In the case of King v. Burwell, decided by the Supreme Court in June of 2015, President Obama won the day by convincing six justices that Obamacare would collapse if he lost. The case involved the so-called "individual mandate," which imposes a financial penalty on those who neglect to buy health insurance. To many observers, the wording of Affordable Care Act seemed to impose the financial penalty only in states where a state exchange had been set up, not in states where the federal exchange operated by default. At that time, only 16 states (and the District of Columbia) had...

    On Thursday, US President Barack Obama proclaimed that Israel was now a supporter of his nuclear deal with Iran, but on Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu corrected him, saying that Israel is more worried about the deal than ever. President Obama held a press briefing at the Pentagon on Thursday, coping with a revelation that the US flew pallets loaded with $400 million in cash to Iran in an unmarked cargo plane. The payment came simultaneously with the release of four Americans held in Iranian prisons. Iran claimed the payment was ransom for the prisoners, while the White House...

    Federal data released Aug. 9 shows that Americans wages are dropping again, seven years after President Barack Obama declared the economy had recovered from the property-bubble and three months before the 2016 election. The dramatic drop was buried in an Aug. 9 report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which said that officials have radically revised their prior claim that wages grew 4.2 percent in the first quarter, from January to March. Real hourly compensation decreased 0.4 percent after revision, rather than the previously-published increase of 4.2 percent, the BLS admitted. Compensation also fell another 1.4 percent in the...

    President Obama called the shooting deaths of at least five Dallas police officers a vicious, calculated and despicable attack and a wrenching reminder of the sacrifices of law enforcement. Speaking from Warsaw on Friday after the first of a series of meetings with European Union and NATO leaders, the president said he had offered his condolences to the Dallas mayor overnight. We are horrified over these events, he said. We stand united with the people in the police department in Dallas. The officers were monitoring a peaceful protest Thursday of police shootings of black men this week in Minnesota and...

Since the Obama administration inked the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in January, Kerry has been busying himself with ensuring that European banks start doing business with the Iranians. Yes, you read that correctly. Not only has the United States and its European allies agreed to lift sanctions against the Islamic Republic, the administration is now encouraging the private banking sector to do the same.

    After embracing the notion that gender is as much mental as it is physical, the Obama White House on Tuesday rejected the suggestion that it has been particularly aggressive on transgender issues. This is a confrontation that Republicans have sought out rather cynically, because they are seeking a political advantage, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at Tuesday's briefing. Earnest said Republicans in North Carolina started the controversy by passing legislation (HB2), which negated a Charlotte city ordinance allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice.

    A number of people at AT and elsewhere have written about the New York Times fascinating but also deeply disturbing story of how Ben Rhodes, a callow, unsuccessful but well-connected short-story writer became the Obama administrations primary foreign policy mandarin. This should come as no surprise to careful observers of this administration. Rhodes, according to the Times piece, is Obamas foreign policy guru a man who has a mind meld with the president. What Rhodes and the president share though, is not so much a leftist approach to foreign affairs -- though presumably that plays a role -- but rather...

    resident Obama's political appointees are not only celebrated by the media as the best and brightest America has to offer; they are promoted as being so bright that they are allowed to boast about how they masterfully manipulate the press, like sculpting a can of smelly, journalistic Play-Doh.

    In light of Ben Rhodes' revelation over the weekend that he led a White House effort to lie about the Iranian nuclear deal, it is useful to look back at last summer, when the White House attacked the Associated Press and its diplomatic reporter, @APDiplowriter (Matt Lee) for asking too many questions about the deal, particularly about the side agreement that allows the Iranians to 'self-inspect' their weapons production facility at Parchin. What this story is really about is the politicization of expertise, and how far things can go when one group of experts (arms controllers) decides to fight...

    Its hardly any wonder that Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes has a "mind meld" with his boss, the president. According to a David Samuels New York Times Magazine article to be published Sunday and already posted to the website, Rhodes, like Barack Obama, is contemptuous of "the American foreign-policy establishment." What Obama calls the "Washington playbook" dictating the sorts of responses available to American policymakers, Rhodes calls the "Blob." Blob includes "editors and reporters at The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker," etc. It also encompasses, according to Rhodes, Obama's former secretary of state Hillary Clinton,...

    Ben Rhodes is perhaps the weirdest foreign policy adviser in the history of the White House. His path to his current position as deputy national security adviser for strategic communications was, as this New York Times profile informs us, "perhaps not strictly believable, even as fiction." Forget his title. Ben Rhodes is "the single most influential voice shaping American foreign policy aside from Potus himself," according to the Times. What makes that so bizarre is that Rhodes has no background in foreign policy at all. He was a failed short story writer who wandered into the orbit of Obama aides...

    When it comes to foreign policy, President Obama has spent more than seven years now living the dream. And I mean dream, as in fantasy -- a trip to an alternate universe. Never mind the dangerous and in some cases deadly realities that increasingly beset the rest of the planet. For the White House, it's been one glorious fiction after another. Russia was a "reset." Libya was a success. So was the pivot to Asia. The tide of war is receding. There was a red line in Syria (until there wasn't). The Iran nuclear program is now "exclusively peaceful." America's...

    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...

    National Public Radio collaborated with Harvards T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to survey Americans recent experience with health care. As to the Affordable Care Act, the surveys findings are damning. They suggest that Obamacare has been worse than a complete waste of money. This is the surveys only question directly on Obamacare. Most respondents say that Obamacare hasnt affected them; where it has affected them, most say the laws impact has been harmful: The promises that President Obama made about the ACAcheaper premiums! lower co-pays and deductibles! better coverage!have completely failed to materialize....

    Politico reports: The White House chided Israel on Tuesday for the way it canceled a meeting between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying it would have been good manners for Israeli officials to tell the White House directly.

    Get ready: Obama may have chalked up another PolitiFact "Lie of the Year" award. President Obama claimed that contrary to the widely-held perception that he's a "big government, crazy liberal," he actually welcomed regulatory reform in his administration. At a National Governors Association luncheon Monday, the president asked the gathering to send him their lists of the "most illogical and frustrating" regulations enacted under his term in office. "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...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday that President Obama will go down as one of the worst presidents in U.S. history — perhaps the worst — and that Mr. Obama’s comments about him a day earlier were a “badge of honor” of sorts. “He’s going to go down as one of the worst, perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States,” Mr. Trump said on “Fox and Friends.” “You know, it’s interesting — when they make those statements, that means that, in way, it’s a badge of honor, because that’s the one that they’re looking at.”

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We have an audio sound bite here from Obama, the press conference I mentioned an hour ago. He went out there and he was praising his economy. He was heralding first-time unemployment rate as being under 5% for the first time in seven years. That's essentially since he took office. The first time. When have you ever heard that referred to: "The first-time unemployment rate is now at 4.9%"? What's that? Does anybody have any memory of hearing the unemployment rate referred to as "the first-time unemployment rate"? Well, there's a reason he said it. It's because...

"The day that I'm sworn into office, I'm on watch - whatever it is.
  • So this is what 'full employment' looks like? [That's essentially what we have today]

    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...
  • Getting away with a bogus unemployment rate. Why?

    The government (Obama administration) reported that only 151,000 jobs were created last month and that the unemployment rate DROPPED to 4.9%, the lowest in 10 years. 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?

    Federal Reserve Bank of New York officials secretly conducted real-time exercises during the 2011 and 2013 debt-limit crisis that demonstrated the federal government could function during a temporary shutdown by prioritizing spending, even as Treasury Secretary Jack Lew publicly claimed many times that such efforts were "unworkable," according to a new report by the House Financial Services Committee obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The staff report, to be released Tuesday, charges that Lew and other Obama administration officials deliberately misled Congress and the public during the federal budget and debt limit showdowns in both years. The committee will...
  • Obama Regrets Polarized Rancor. He Should.

    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? Four years ago, when he was in the home stretch of his first term and running...
