    A BREAKING NEWS, Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) communique is reporting that a comment allegedly made by outgoing President Obama to President Elect Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner in their secret meeting Wednesday at a Marine Corps Base in Hawaii was so antagonistic that US Secret Service agents had to intervene! Their meeting "erupted in a Scream Fest that caused US Secret Service protective agents to intervene before physical violence was caused." Kushner was reacting to stark criticism of his father in which Obama, "suggested/implied that his father, Charles Kushner, might be safer living in Israel if the Trump team didn't like...

    President Obama used his final weekly address in 2016 to assure Americans that he will remain committed to defending the "progress" made by his administration after handing over the White House to Donald Trump on Jan. 20. ... While the president initially indicated that he looked forward to a quiet retirement, at a time when many polls showed Democrat Hillary Clinton marching to victory in the presidential election, Obama has said his plans have changed since Trump ran away with the win. "I promise you that next year Michelle and I are going to be right there with you, and...

    We have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism America is still struggling to overcome its "legacies of slavery, Jim Crow, colonialism, and racism," President Obama told Comedy Central Monday night. Appearing on "The Daily Show," Obama was asked about how he speaks to crowds about race. How does he "skirt that line between speaking your mind and sharing your true opinions on race whilst, at the same time, not being seen to alienate some of the people you are talking to," host Trevor Noah asked. "You know, my general theory is...

    Jihad Watch ^ | November 29, 2016 | Robert Spencer
    Our response to this situation matters. If we respond to this situation by casting aspersions on millions of people that adhere to a particular religion or if we increase our suspicion of people who practice a particular religion, we are more likely going to contribute to acts of violence than we are to prevent them. Of course we should not cast aspersions on people who had nothing to do with this jihad attack. But this kind of talk is used to preclude any examination of the motivating ideology underlying such attacks, and that leaves us more vulnerable to more such...

    President Obama has described Donald Trump as ignorant, dangerous and unfit to lead the nation, but hell ask the Republican president-elect Thursday not to wipe out his cherished, legacy-making executive actions on everything from the Iranian nuclear deal to Obamacare. In a meeting at the White House to prepare Mr. Trump for taking office, Mr. Obama will try to persuade the president-elect to honor what his aides call a tradition of preserving executive actions implemented by the departing chief executive. There is a tradition, particularly with regard to executive agreements of successive presidents preserving some element of continuity, said White...

    In an interview on SiriusXMs Sway in the Morning show, President Barack Obama named Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar as two of his favorite rappers, but stressed that Jay Z is still the undisputed king of the genre. I think the young guys, Kendrick and Chance, are doing amazing work. I love Drake and the girls love Drake, so hes commercially just doing great, and unbelievably talented, Obama said. Jay Zs still the king. I mean hes got a track record. Same with Kanye so theres a lot of talent out there, but when I look at whos breaking...

    As first ladies they could hardly have been more different. But as Democrats looking to fire up female voters, Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton were firmly bonded on Thursday. [] Seriously, is there anyone more inspiring than Michelle Obama? Clinton asked, as a crowd in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, answered with cheers. Mrs. Obama declared the feeling mutual. She referred to Clinton as my girl and offered reassurance that her testimony for Clinton is both personal and political. [] The Clintons and Obamas themselves have a fraught history, one that includes both spouses. While Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton battled in...

    On Capitol Hill this year, one of President Obamas most troublesome critics has been Senator Obama. President Obama, for instance, wants Congress to raise the national debt limit. But his opponents have brought up a statement that then-Sen. Barack Obama made in 2006: The first-term Democrat representing Illinois said that merely debating a debt-limit increase was a sign of leadership failure. President Obama now insists that he had the right to dispatch U.S. forces to the conflict in Libya without authorization from Congress. Critics have noted that Sen. Obama seemed to feel differently about the proper use of military force...

    President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a videotaped Christmas message to the nation yesterday. In this message, the president said: "Today, like millions of Americans and Christians around the world, our family celebrates the birth of Jesus and the values He lived in his own life." The president and his family are on vacation in Hawaii. The last piece of legislation he signed was on Dec. 18. It was the omnibus spending bill, which permits funding of Planned Parenthood. ...

    President Barack Obamas nominee for chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Thursday at his confirmation hearing before the Senate that Russia presents the greatest threat to the United States. Gen. Joseph Dunfords comments closely match the foreign policy platform of Mitt Romney, who unsuccessfully challenged Obama for the presidency in 2012, The Guardian reports. If you want to talk about a nation that could pose an existential threat to the United States, Id have to point to Russia, Dunford told the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday. If you look at their behavior, its nothing short of alarming. During...

    American Thinker ^ | Carol Brown
    During Sunday's address to the nation, President Obama went to bat for Islam, as he so often does. It matters not when, where, or how he defends it. His compulsion to advocate for the ideology he so adores is relentless. If he shills for Islam immediately following an Islamic terror attack, no problem. Perhaps he even enjoys it, like poking his finger in our eye. His sickness knows no bounds. And so, among other things, Sunday he said: ISIL does not speak for Islam. They're thugs and killers, part of a cult of death. And they account for a tiny...

    President Barack Obama on Sunday night will deliver a rare Oval Office address about terror threats in the aftermath of the San Bernardino, California, shootings that claimed 14 lives. CNN and other networks will broadcast it live at 8 p.m. ET. The White House says the president will provide an update on the investigation. Federal authorities have said the attacks are being investigated as an act of terrorism. "The President will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism, including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest...

    Born to a Muslim father and raised in his early childhood by a Muslim stepfather in a Muslim nation, where he was registered in school as Muslim, Barack Obama has many ties to Islam that have caused some to doubt his profession of Christian faith. Obama, who as president has supported the Muslim Brotherhood, even referred in a television interview to “my Muslim faith.” Apparently, he’s done it again. The headline on C-SPAN following a recent Obama speech in Turkey read: “Did President Obama Just Admit He Was Muslim?”

    Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes was forced several times today to clarify a comment made by President Obama that aired Friday morning hours before ISIS terrorists murdered more than 125 in Paris. 'I don't think they're gaining strength,' Obama had said of the terrorist organization on Good Morning America. 'What is true is that from the start our goal has been first to contain them and we have contained them.' Contained, said Rhodes, was simply meant in terms of geography. 'The president was responding very specifically to the geographic expansion of ISIL in Iraq and Syria,' Rhodes told ABC...

    Jihad: Amid fresh terror strikes in Paris and Beirut, and the FBI arrest of an Ohio Islamic State operative who sought to kill U.S. soldiers and American shoppers and students, President Obama downplays the IS threat. 'ISIS is gaining strength, aren't they?" ABC's Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos asked the president Friday, citing this month's suicide bombings in Beirut and the bombing of a Russian commercial jetliner by the Islamic State, which killed 40 and 244, respectively. "I don't think they're gaining strength," Obama asserted. "We have contained them." This may go down as one of the most irresponsible...

    Obama's wanton lawlessness, criminal incompetence, willful neglect, refusal to enforce the law, refusal to secure the borders, refusal to even recognize the obvious enemy, refusal to take Islamic terrorism seriously, etc, leaves us wide open to terrorist attack. Our borders and nation must be secured! All Islamics here on temporary visas must be rounded up and deported now! Recent Islamic immigrants should be suspect. Obama's treasonous policies are inviting ISIS to attack us!! Don't let it happen again.

    In a wide-ranging conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson, President Obama suggested that Christians who take their religion the most seriously often adopt an us versus them mentality. In the interview, published in the Nov. 5 issue of The New York Review of Books, the president lamented the fact that here in the United States, sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an us versus them, and those are sometimes the loudest voices. But sometimes I think you also get frustrated with kind of the wishy-washy, more liberal versions where anything goes, Mr. Obama said, referring to Ms. Robinson. How...
