Obama Vetoes Keystone Pipeline – Conn Carroll


President Obama vetoed legislation authorizing construction of the Keystone Pipeline Tuesday without any ceremony or photographers on hand. “Through this bill, the United States Congress attempts to circumvent longstanding and proven processes for determining whether or not and operating a cross-border pipeline serves the national interest,” Obama’s official veto statement read.

Muslim Immigration Poses Serious National Security Threat – Investors.com


France, Belgium and now even liberal Denmark regret letting in so many immigrants from Muslim countries. Their swelling Islamic communities have become breeding grounds for terrorists.

Some Chris Christie Supporters Now Turn Their Backs – NYTimes.com

Gov. Chris Christie (RINO - NJ)

GOP Double-Crossing Traitors | The Daily Caller

Ann Coulter

Now that a federal judge has held Obama’s illegal executive amnesty unconstitutional, perhaps U.S. senators will remember that they swore to uphold the Constitution, too. Back when they needed our votes before the last election, Republicans were hairy-chested warriors, vowing to block Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty” — if only voters gave them a Senate majority. […]

Five Middle East Blunders | National Review Online


President Obama claims he inherited a mess in the Middle East. Not so. Fracking and horizontal drilling on private lands in the U.S. had taken off in the last years of the Bush administration and by 2009 were set to revolutionize America’s energy future. By 2011, the U.S. had cut way back its dependence on […]

Enemies of the West Find a Friend in Obama | National Review Online


At the risk of being melodramatic, it must nonetheless be said: We are in a war for civilization itself, and Barack Obama is not on the right side. We are in a battle for civilization because the Islamic State, which is darkness and evil personified, has declared war against us — and we in the […]


Obama’s Unconstitutional Attempt to Shift the Blame for His Losing ISIS Strategy | National Review Online

Andrew C. McCarthy

On Wednesday, President Obama proposed for Congress’s consideration an authorization for the use of military force (AUMF) against the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL). The jihadists are already being fought — albeit not nearly vigorously enough — under existing AUMFs. So Obama’s proposal, which would gratuitously repeal one of the prior AUMFs, is unnecessary. It […]


The Hidden Issue Behind Marines Ditching Weapons In Yemen | The Daily Caller


All the furor about Marines allegedly surrendering weapons to Yemeni rebels misses the obvious question: Why were Marines and diplomats in such a rush? There was plenty of time to draw up an exit plan that did not include destroying weapons and ditching dozens of vehicles. The deterioration of the security situation was months in […]


An Authorization for Failure | National Review Online


President Obama has sent Congress a proposed Authorization for the Use of Military Force against the Islamic State, and it’s not immediately clear why.

Universal Healthcare: Who Really Pays? – American Thinker


Proponents of “universal healthcare” often assert that healthcare is a right. If so, then healthcare is a rather different kind of right than those of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. We get those unalienable rights from our Creator, or from Nature. But healthcare is a complex array of products and services that must […]


To become UN Sec General Obama must ‘Solve’ the Existence of Israel – American Thinker


President Obama is basically a Marxist of the “Third World” variety, which means that he lives in the faith that some elite political minority can rule first the United States and Europe, and then the world. In Washington speculation is rife that the end of the Obama years is only the beginning of a run for […]


Republican FCC Member Warns Net Neutrality Is Not Neutral – Breitbart

Ajit Pai, Commissioner (FCC)

Ajit Pai, the sole Republican Commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), inferred in a Tweet that President Barack Obama’s secret, 332-page “Net Neutrality” document is a scheme for federal micro-managing of the Internet to extract billions in new taxes from consumers and again enforce progressives’ idea of honest, equitable, and balanced content fairness. FCC […]


The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever – Telegraph


When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified. Two […]


Obama’s Failed Presidency – Conn Carroll


“I think Ronald Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that, you know, Richard Nixon did not, and in a way that Bill Clinton did not,” President Obama told the Reno Gazette-Journal in January 2008 during his Democratic primary showdown with Hillary Clinton. “He put us on a fundamentally different path because the country […]

Larry Kudlow

Mitt Romney showed once again that he is truly a class act. In his announcement that he will not be running for president in 2016, he stated: “I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well-known as I am today, one who has not yet taken […]

NEW YORK — Mitt Romney’s exit from the 2016 presidential race sets up a critical challenge for Jeb Bush, top Republicans say: If the former Florida governor can scoop up many of Romney’s big donors, he would set himself up as the dominant front-runner in the establishment wing of the party — and make life […]


NSC Silent on Russian History of Terror


There was Crimea and now there is Ukraine. But going back decades there was al Qaeda.

A Future Coup in Egypt?


Not enough can be said about the Muslim Brotherhood and their wide and global influence in policy.
