    Fox News Politics ^ | February 18, 2017 | FNC Staff
    C-SPAN released a survey Friday that asked historians to rank past presidents and former-President Obama was voted the country's 12th best, right behind Woodrow Wilson and in front of James Monroe. Historians were asked to essentially grade the presidents on items like “public persuasion” and “moral authority.” Politico reported that Obama rated high in the category of “equal justice for all,” but received low marks for his relationship with Congress.

    Asra Nomani, a former Georgetown University professor, co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement, and author of Standing Alone: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday’s Breitbart News Daily. Marlow professed his admiration for Nomani’s recent column, “The Alt-Left’s Cyber Jihad Against Trump and His Supporters,” which covered what Marlow described as “the most significant news event of the year so far, aside from the Trump inauguration”: the anti-free-speech riots at U.C. Berkeley. “Being a journalist, I believe in the power of words, and I also study propaganda. I feel like we’re...

    Al Monitor ^ | February 13, 2017 | Mustafa Akyol
    An early scene involves one of the most controversial prohibitions in Turkey's history — the ban on reciting the Islamic call to prayer in the original Arabic that was imposed in 1932 by the one-party, Kemalist regime and lasted until 1950, when the first free elections brought the opposition Democrat Party to power. “The Chief” covers the ban, abhorred for decades by Turkey’s religious conservatives, in a dramatic fictional fashion. As the unpopular Turkish-language call to prayer is delivered from a minaret, a bold imam walks into the courtyard of a mosque and dares to recite the Arabic call to prayer. A soldier under strict orders to stop such “reactionaries” forces the imam to...

    The mainstream media is making great progress in their current campaign to repeal President Trump’s travel ban (rather than reporting on it) but the effort was in serious need of a poster child in order to be successful. Stories about criminals being deported would never produce the required amount of sympathy with the public. Now, however, they seem to have found the ideal star to play the lead in this drama. Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos checks all the right boxes and is now being featured in a nearly continuous loop on cable news. (CNN) Mexico warned its citizens living in...

    On January 29, the fighting in Avdiivka, a town in eastern Ukraine within Ukrainian government-controlled territory, seriously escalated. The fighting began close to the demarcation line and six kilometers north of Donetsk (see map), and continued until at least February 3. According to official reports, 13 Ukrainian soldiers were killed and 93 were wounded since the fighting intensified. Three civilians were killed and one wounded, and a British journalist was wounded and later operated on in the Dnipro hospital. Heavy shelling from the separatist-controlled territories also affected nearby residential areas. The town was cut off from electricity, heat and water...

    To the Editor: A group of parents of New Trier High School students is concerned about what their teens will be taught during the forthcoming "All School Seminar Day" planned for Feb. 28, titled: "Understanding Today's Struggle for Racial Civil Rights." New Trier High School is often ranked among the best in the country. It serves the prosperous suburbs north of Chicago - Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe, most of Northfield, and parts of Glenview - an overwhelmingly white area.

Those trying to persuade and manipulate are playing hardball. And, in many instances, we’re falling for it: they plop the ball in the middle of a frenzied crowd, nobody sees exactly who dropped it, and we in the news and the public pick it up and run. We’re being played. As I’ve reported and written: Astroturfers often disguise themselves and publish blogs, write letters to...

At the end of the ponderous tale, script appears on the screen: “The will to succeed is always welcome here.” That wasn’t the full story. The Super Bowl ad asked viewers to visit the 84 Lumber website if they wanted the rest of the story. The website version included a five-minute “director’s cut” version that...

    In his continued efforts to address the number of undocumented immigrants in the country, President Trump took a harder line against cities and jurisdictions whose mayors have said they won't cooperate with his plans to enlist their police forces to help the federal government round up undocumented immigrants. The president said that he will cut federal funding to the police budgets of so-called sanctuary cities — like New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C — which could cost them billions of dollars. (Ahilan Arulanantham, a human rights attorney, told us on the Code Switch podcast this week that some big legal...

    The Trump administration says it is pulling back advertising to promote HealthCare.gov as open enrollment draws to a close for this year. The Health and Human Services Department said in a statement Thursday that the government has withdrawn about $5 million in ads as part of an effort to cut costs. The statement said HHS has already spent more than $60 million to promote sign-ups this year under former President Barack Obama's health care law. Former Obama officials immediately accused the new administration of "sabotage." Calling the decision "outrageous," former HealthCare.gov CEO Kevin Counihan said in a statement that the...

    The diatribe against the Obama administration on prime-time television by a Russian Foreign Ministry official was hardly unusual in the long history of rocky relations between the United States and Russia. The administration “demonstrated the belief that the strongest has the right to create evil,” Maria Zakharova, the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said on the Christmas Day broadcast. From Washington’s perspective, it is the Kremlin that generally personifies evil, a point President Obama made on Thursday in punishing Russia for cyberattacks by directing new sanctions against Moscow and expelling 35 Russian diplomats. “The United States and friends and allies around the...

In addition, the Democrats have lost 1,046 key positions in the upcoming administration and have chosen Russia as their scapegoat. In retaliation, his administration is ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives and 3 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) operatives. The latter stand accused of attempts at hacking the Secretary of State Election websites of the states of Georgia, West Virginia, and Kentucky.

Surely anyone confronting this stat must conclude that the media are hopelessly incompetent and/or crooked. The New York Times went way off the deep end, announcing a few months ago that defeating Trump was more important than telling the truth. So they had to send a post-election apology to their readers: we're sorry, we'll try to...

    (CNN)Arguing that Americans still subscribe to his vision of progressive change, President Barack Obama asserted in an interview recently he could have succeeded in this year's election if he was eligible to run. "I am confident in this vision because I'm confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Obama told his former senior adviser David Axelrod in an interview for the "The Axe Files" podcast, produced by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN.

    (ZHE) Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017. In a statement, Obama said that: Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate...

    Frustrated after seeing another candidate secure the presidency without winning the national popular vote, mostly Democratic lawmakers in several capitols want their states to join a 10-year-old movement to work around the Electoral College. In states including Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Mexico, legislators have said they plan to introduce legislation that would require their state's Electoral College voters cast ballots for the presidential candidate who earns the most votes nationwide, regardless of the statewide results. "Every vote in this country should have equal weight. The Electoral College is a relic of a bygone era, and we need to change...

    Miss Sloane, a highly anticipated movie demonizing the NRA and calling for gun control, has bombed. The movie succeeded only in emphasizing the top-down nature of the gun-control campaign and how little intensity there is for more regulations. The movie seemed to have everything going for it. Liberal movie critics loved it, and it was backed by a hefty ad budget along with heaps of favorable news coverage. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has already nominated the movie’s star, Jessica Chastain, for a prestigious Golden Globe, considered a strong predictor of the Oscars. But two weeks after its national release,...

    Citing “overwhelming demand,” rock and roll musician Kid Rock recently started selling Donald Trump-themed apparel. One of three T-shirts tied to the president-elect depicts a post-election map with Republican states labeled “United States of America” and Democratic states labeled “Dumbf—istan.” Another features the words “God, Guns & Trump.” The third includes an image of Trump along with a crude message directed at his opponents. The hat, which is a spinoff of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” cap, reads “Make America Badass Again.” The items are available through Kid Rock’s online store. (Warning: Some items feature vulgar language.) Related VideoBoone...

    On a warm Friday morning in Lafayette, one of San Francisco’s wealthiest suburbs, a man named Olivier strolled down Mount Diablo Boulevard with his mother, nephew and 3-month-old daughter. A car approached the native New Yorker, the son of a Nigerian father and French Canadian mother. The sedan slowed. A window rolled down. “White power!” the driver yelled and then sped off.

    Sony Pictures Television is in very early stages of rebooting several classic sitcoms from TV legend Norman Lear as miniseries — including “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” and “Good Times” — Variety has learned exclusively. The idea currently being discussed by Lear and Sony executives would be to have new actors recreate classic episodes of the shows, working from the original scripts, and package them as short, six-episode anthologies. The scripts would be treated similar to plays being mounted in new productions. “There is some talk about doing some of the original shows, redoing them with today’s stars,” Lear...

    Ken Burns claims, “For nearly forty years now, I have diligently practiced a conscious neutrality in my work.” This “neutrality” includes the following: In 2008, the Democratic National Committee chose Burns to produce the introductory video for Senator Edward Kennedy’s Democratic National Convention speech, which, according to Politico, presented Kennedy as “the modern Ulysses bringing his party home to port.” When Burns endorsed Barack Obama for the U.S. presidency in December 2007, he compared Obama to Abraham Lincoln. In 2012, Burns wrote, “Like FDR, Obama has walked us back from the brink. He averted a depression, ended one war and...

    China intends to root out a “disease” it says is plaguing the nation’s news industry: extortion and so-called fake news. According to the People’s Daily, the official mouthpiece of the Communist Party, such a phenomenon “seriously damages the image of news workers, corrodes the credibility and authoritative nature of the news media, is strongly opposed by all sectors of society, and bitterly detested by the people.” China’s purges of so-called “fake news” have also at times been motivated along apparently political lines.
