    President Obama has authorized sending "less than 50" special operations forces to work in Syria with "local opposition" forces to "train, advise and assist" them in their fight against the Islamic State, a White House spokesman confirmed on Friday. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the troops would not serve in combat roles, but admitted that they could find themselves in harm's way, like Army Master Sgt. Joshua Wheeler, who perished during a special operations forces raid in Iraq last week. "They do not have a combat mission; they have a training, advise and assist role," Earnest said. "They will...

    New York City's Czar Michael Bloomberg today proposed banning metal and plastic tableware in NYC. Czar Bloomberg cited the injuries caused by the metal and plastic tableware as the primary reason for the ban, although environmental and dietary concerns were also factored in the decision. Czar Bloomberg cited the statistics and chart developed by Dr. Michael Mann, of Global Warming fame, to support the estimated 20,000,000 injuries each year caused by the offending tableware. When Dr. Mann was questioned about the data and the methodology used to develop and prepare the chart, Dr. Mann accused the questioners of being "deniers"...

    “In popular culture, the phrase ‘city on a hill’ has become so closely identified with Ronald Reagan and before him with John Winthrop that even Christians can forget that the words originated not with a founder of a colony but with the Founder of their faith,” Richard M. Gamble writes in his new book, In Search Of The City On A Hill: The Making and Unmaking Of An American Myth. Gamble teaches at Hillsdale. “The metaphor of the city on a hill comes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew,” Gamble reminds us. Specifically,...

    Charleston (WV) Daily Mail ^ | March 4, 2012 | Don Surber
    The big news this week on Capitol Hill was that Democrats are confident of taking back the House. Congressman Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said: “We’ve gone from a gale force wind against us to a sustained breeze at our backs.” Hmm. That was the Financial Times report. The Hill report was less windy as it quoted Congressman Israel as saying: “We’re not there yet, we’ve got some work to do. But … we have gone from a gale-force wind against us last year to a sustained breeze at our back. I’ve never said we...

    Suppose you've just turned 18, barely out of high school, and now you're on guard duty at the borders of Israel, like the girls and boys who check your tourist luggage at Ben Gurion airport. It's an adult job, but you try to live a normal life, while being publicly threatened by suicidal Moo Bros, nuke-happy Ahmadinejad, and all their leftist enablers. Welcome to your life. This is not your beer-soaked Spring Break. It's not a break at all. Check out the daily hate propaganda translations in English on MEMRI.org, and you can see what they are facing. Fortunately it's...

    This video comes courtesy of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which was a little surprised to see a White House aide claim the need for secrecy when it comes to a proposed Executive Order on transparency. Barack Obama wants more transparency on political contributions from executives at government contractors, but apparently his staff believes in “transparency for thee, opacity for we” in the West Wing. Here’s Daniel Gordon attempting to explain that there isn’t any irony at all in invoking executive privilege over their efforts to promulgate an unprecedented intrusion into political thought in the private sector:

    Eleven years ago, we rescued Britain from the parlous state to which socialism had brought it. I remind the House that, under socialism, this country had come to such a pass that [ Nicholas Henderson ] one of our most able and distinguished ambassadors felt compelled to write in a famous dispatch, a copy of which found its way into The Economist, the following words: "We talk of ourselves without shame as being one of the less prosperous countries of Europe. The prognosis for the foreseeable future" , he said in 1979, was "discouraging". Conservative government has changed all that....

    Tonight marks the end of a television era: 24 airs its eighth season finale. The impact of the show on the country has been profound; in the way subjects on the show have been brought into the public spectrum and how Jack Bauer, the protagonist, has become an icon – the man that will do anything to stop evil. While many mourn the loss of Law and Order or Lost, 24 has had a greater impact on America in our post-9/11 era.

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 15, 2010 – The clearing phase of Operation Moshtarak in the center of Afghanistan’s Helmand province continued yesterday, with combined Afghan and international forces conducting a number of mounted and dismounted patrols, military officials reported. Forces have been engaged in periodic small-arms firefights. A number of insurgents have been either killed or detained, officials said, and the combined force has suffered some injuries. Three successful “shuras” were held with influential community members, and other meetings with Helmand residents also took place. Afghan and International Security Assistance Force troops found improvised explosive devices and enemy weapons stockpiles. In Task...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A classified Pentagon assessment shows one in five detainees released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay has joined or is suspected of joining militant groups like al Qaeda, U.S. officials said on Wednesday. The disclosure comes amid revelations that former detainees were playing a leadership role in al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- a Yemen-based group believed to be behind a failed plot to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day....

    When All Else Fails… What Then? First a few statements of obvious fact: President Barrack Hussein Obama has never been properly certified as being Constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President Of The United States. For that to have happened, members of the DNC Elections Certification body would have to have seen and personally witnessed a certified version of Obama’s long form birth certificate to verify his eligibility. Yet we know that Obama has never shown such. In fact, not only has he never produced this document (nor has any member of the DNC ever claimed to have witnessed...
