    It is Margaret Atwood's 76th birthday, and her 2009 novel 'The Year of the Flood' seems an appropriate way to sum up the crude market this year. We await the weekly EIA inventory report this morning, with oil inventories less than 4 million barrels shy of the record of 490.9 mn bbls seen earlier in the year ( itself an 80-year high). While a near-2 million barrel build is expected from today's report, last night's API report has put the putty cat among the pigeons by yielding a surprise draw of 0.4 mn bbls. The API report also showed a...

    Tuesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Ben Stein, a former speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, actor and author, Ben Stein said President Barack Obama “has a real strong hatred of America.”Stein said, “Mr. Obama has been wrong from day one about ISIS. He called them a JV team, he said that they weren’t really serious or important. He has not in any sense addressed their threat. And he is a bad joke, as the leader of the most important nation in the world, he’s a bad joke.”

For an answer, Obama ignores ubiquitous Palestinian calls to kill Jews. He tells us that the only real solution to this hate is “two states for two people; a democratic Jewish state living side-by-side in peace and security with a viable, independent and sovereign Palestinian state” (ibid). That’s ridiculous. Palestinian’ aren’t talking about two states. They’re not talking about peace. They’re not talking about side-by-side. They’re talking about murdering Jews....

    Michelle Obama got the wind taken out of her sails recently when some photos surfaced that expose her school lunch plan for the disaster it is. When 13 year-old Tanner Glenney received his lunch from his Texas middle school cafeteria on taco day, he was shocked by what he saw. He took pictures to show his mother Shelley, and she was enraged to see that there was barely a teaspoon of meat inside her son’s taco. “I first thought it had to be a mistake or the kids were messing around,” Shelley Glenney said. “And then when he told me...

    A Breitbart News review of State Department and Homeland Security data reveals that the United States already admits more than a quarter of a million Muslim migrants each year. President Obama intends to add another 10,000 Syrian migrants on top of that. In 2013 alone, 117,423 migrants from Muslim-majority countries were permanently resettled within the United States having been given lawful permanent resident status. Additionally in 2013, the United States voluntarily admitted an extra 122,921 temporary migrants from Muslim countries as foreign students and foreign workers as well as 39,932 refugees and asylees from Muslim countries.

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.

    Donald Trump's six-page platform on immigration may not be, as Ann Coulter wrote, "the greatest political document since the Magna Carta." But given the issue's role in elevating the candidate to leading Republican polls, it merits serious attention. And at least some of the platform's planks are serious. Trump calls for nationwide use, presumably mandatory, of E-Verify, the government system that is supposed to enable prospective employers to verify a job applicant's immigration status. He also calls for completion of a visa tracking system. About half of the nation's estimated 11.3 million illegal immigrants (Pew Research Center estimates, not significantly...

Water had been seeping into the mine and out of its portal for decades, and the officials knew (or should have known) the water was acidic (pH 4.0-4.5), backed up far into the mine, and laced with heavy metals. But they kept digging – until the greatly weakened dam burst open, unleashing a 3-million-gallon (or more)...

Voltaire If youre wondering what Americans can do as our ruling class sets about enforcing its redefinition of marriage, start by looking back at what it did to the citizens of Indiana when their legislature raised the possibility that someone might object to joining in celebrations of homosexual marriage. Support for homosexual unions was incidental to the insistence of the likeminded folks atop societys commanding heights on punishing Indiana. What incurs their ire has less to do with any substantive matter than with the...
  • Battle Lines for Religious Liberty and Same Sex Marriage Set

    Kelly Shackelford’s debate with Evan Wolfson on Fox News Sunday highlights the battle lines for religious liberty in America now that the Supreme Court has grossly overstepped its authority by declaring same sex marriage a constitutional right. The issue is whether religious liberty extends to how you earn your living, get an education, and run a business. For years to come, the fight for many Christians will be on whether their right to the free exercise of religion includes the right to earn a paycheck without violating their conscience. Televised debates need to focus on the fierce debate over whether...

    On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which concerned whether same-sex marriage is a right protected by the U.S. Constitution. Although the case did not address the right to bear arms, some pro-gun advocates began debating whether the Courts reasoning and analysis had application to national concealed carry licensing reciprocity. This is a reasonable question. If states that formerly did not sanction same-sex marriage now have to recognize all marriages from states that do, shouldnt that also mean restrictive may issue concealed carry jurisdictions have to recognize concealed carry...

    The GOP-controlled Senate is on track this year to confirm the fewest judges since 1969, a dramatic escalation of the long-running partisan feud over the ideological makeup of federal courts. The standoff, if it continues through the 2016 elections as expected, could diminish the stamp that President Barack Obama leaves on the judiciary a less conspicuous but critical part of his legacy. Practically, the makeup of lower-level courts could directly affect a number of Obamas policies expected to face legal challenges from conservatives. Republicans appear willing to absorb criticism that theyre interfering with the prerogative of a president to...

    SALT LAKE CITY The Episcopal Church has completed its embrace of gay rights, changing church law to allow same-sex religious marriages throughout the denomination, just days after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide. The new policy won overwhelming approval from the top Episcopal legislative body Wednesday, following decades of debate and conflict. It came 12 years after the denomination blazed a trail by electing the first openly gay bishop. "To finally get to this day is an incredible moment," said the Rev. Cynthia Black, of Morristown, New Jersey, a lesbian who has been campaigning for gay acceptance...
  • Paul Ryans Thin Gruel?

    Last week, Wisconsin Congressman and recent Vice-Presidential aspirant Paul Ryan appeared on the venerable CBS-TV program “Face the Nation” and stated that the Obamacare battle is temporarily over, and that the other side won. He stated that Obamacare was a bad policy and would “…collapse under its own weight” and that our side needs to settle in and wait for this eventuality to come to pass. Congressman Ryan was not, as some have supposed, counseling surrender in the health care fight. He was advising the conservatives that they must take the long view, and give the Obamacare architects enough time, and...

    Thus far on Hewitts show, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee have argued for using the so-called Reid Rule to get rid of the filibuster and repeal the Affordable Care Act. Hewitt also put the question to Scott Walker at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, and the Wisconsin governor replied, Yes, absolutely. Yes. Republicans need to do whatever it takes to get rid of Obamacare, Jindal elaborated to POLITICO in a statement. Democrats used budget reconciliation to pass it. Republicans should just be as committed...

    Despite the Supreme Courts repeated attempts to prop it up, Obamacare is collapsing. This is obvious not merely to the majority of Americans who have always disapproved of the law, but also to an increasing number of progressives. Consequently, we are once again hearing calls for single-payer health care. Most advocates of this system, including Hillary Clintons main competitor for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination, favor Medicare-for-All. They want, in other words, to put all Americans on the government program that covers the elderly and disabled. An excellent antidote for this simplistic solution is David Hogbergs new book, Medicares Victims:...

    Defiant Oregon bakers fined $135,000 for their 2013 refusal to make a cake for a lesbian wedding reportedly vow to "fight back" against the state labor commissioner's stiff penalty and are calling on "Christians to take a stand." "For years, weve heard same-sex marriage will not affect anybody," Aaron Klein, co-owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, told The Blaze. "Im here firsthand to tell everyone in America that it has already impacted people. Christians, get ready to take a stand. Get ready for civil disobedience." Oregon's Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian on Thursday issued a final ruling in the...
