Obama Reportedly Blocks Israel Missile Shipment

US administration officials stop missile transfer, order all future transfers to be scrutinized in sign of further cooling ties.

by Ari Yashar     •     Arutz Sheva

missile defense copyA new report reveals that US President Barack Obama’s administration stopped a shipment of missiles to Israel late last month and tightened weapons shipment procedures to Israel, as tensions between the two nations grow amid Operation Protective Edge.

The report in the Wall Street Journal, released Wednesday night, cites US officials in Obama’s administration, who say they discovered Israel had requested a large number of Hellfire missiles directly through military-to-military channels. An initial batch of the missiles was about to be shipped, according to sources in Israel and the US Congress. [Read more...]

Support the Kurds!

Iraqby Dr. Laurie Ann Mylroie

On Sunday, Massoud Barzani, President of Iraqi Kurdistan, called on the international community to provide arms directly to the Kurdish Regional Government to enable it to combat the barbarically brutal Islamic State. Iraq’s Kurds are pro-American. They govern their territory effectively and peaceably, and they are among the most tolerant people in the Muslim Middle East—qualities demonstrated anew, as they provide refuge to the hundreds of thousands who have fled the advances of the Islamic State and who include members of Iraq’s ancient Christian and Yazidi communities, as well as Shi’ite, and even Sunni, Arabs. Arming the Kurds would seem to have been an obvious step long ago, but President Obama insisted on routing U.S. arms through Baghdad and did not change U.S. policy, until after Barzani’s public appeal.

Obama Attacks For-Profit Colleges For Teacher Unions

by Kerri Toloczko     •      Investor’s Business Daily

EducationIn a fit of political pique and campaign considerations, President Obama’s Department of Education is proposing higher education regulations that would deny access to degree programs to nontraditional, low-income and minority students attending for-profit colleges and universities during a time of job scarcity.

The administration has been swinging a sword at this sector since Obama took office, striking through “Gainful Employment” regulations restricting federal student loans based on arbitrary post-graduation employment rates only at private-sector institutions. In 2010, the department proposed similar severe funding restrictions for students attending career colleges and technical schools such as Strayer University, ITT Tech, Kaplan College and University of Phoenix.

Obama Official Deleted Obamacare Emails Sought By Congress

by Patrick Howley     •     Daily Caller

marilyn_tavennery_emails_ObamacareThe administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) deleted some of her emails and may not be able to cooperate with a congressional investigation into the flawed Obamacare rollout, CMS has warned Congress.

Marilyn Tavenner, who was appointed by President Obama to take over CMS within the Department of Health and human Services in 2013 — prior to the Obamacare rollout — deleted some of her emails and did not save hard copies as the Federal Records Act requires her to do, MSNBC reported Thursday.

Obama Fetes the Dictators

The president’s Africa summit brought some of the continent’s worst kleptocrats to Washington.

by Peter Roff     •     US News

obama_31Over the past week, President Barack Obama and the United States have played host to a bevy of African leaders as part of an international summit. It seems a little out of the ordinary for them to come here instead of Obama going there, but one would hope the majesty of the capital city would have an impact on their outlook.

That’s because Washington, modeled as it is in so many ways on ancient Greece, was designed and planned to be a living homage to the democratic traditions the Founding Fathers borrowed from the Greeks, incorporated into the city’s architectural framework as a reminder of the origins of our political system.

White House Spokesman has no idea why Obama didn’t pursue immigration reform in 2009

Obama-upsetby Noah Rothman     •     HotAir.com  

Oh, he didn’t come right out and admit that, but White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest communicated his bewilderment perfectly on Monday while on the receiving end of a grilling by Fox News White House Correspondent Ed Henry.

Henry recalled that then candidate Barack Obama guaranteed in an interview with Univision host Jorge Ramos that an immigration reform proposal he would support would be among his accomplishments in the first year of his presidency.

“I cannot guarantee that it is going to be in the first 100 days,” Obama told Ramos in May, 2008. “But what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I’m promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible.”

Obama dropped that ball. Even Politifact, which cannot bring itself to label virtually any of the president’s failed promises regarding immigration reform “broken,” has singled out this one as a clear and unequivocal broken promise.

Given the size of Democratic majorities in Congress, the president could have been provided with an immigration bill designed and passed exclusively by Democrats. In the same fashion that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the Affordable Care Act were purely partisan exercises, The American Dream and Apple Pie Betsy Ross Act of 2009 (How could you oppose that?) would have been the dream Democratic reform package.

Al Qaeda Is Back!

Syria Al-Qaeda Muslim Brotherhoodby the Editorial Board of the New York Post

When he campaigned for re-election two years ago, President Obama repeatedly reassured us al Qaeda had been “decimated” and “is on the path to defeat” — even after the attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the US ambassador.

But we’ve just had two new reports demonstrating that not only has al Qaeda not been defeated, it’s stronger than ever.

The first, from The New York Times, reports that European governments have paid al Qaeda and its affiliates at least $125 million since 2008. The money was funneled through proxies or disguised as humanitarian aid, and it was used to ransom kidnapped citizens from terrorists. [Read more...]

US: Russia Violated 1987 Nuclear Missile Treaty

ObamaPutin copyby Jim Kuhnhenn     •      Associated Press

In an escalation of tensions, the Obama administration accused Russia on Monday of conducting tests in violation of a 1987 nuclear missile treaty, calling the breach “a very serious matter” and going public with allegations that have simmered for some time.

The treaty confrontation comes at a highly strained time between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin over Russia’s intervention in Ukraine and Putin’s grant of asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. [Read more...]

Empty Rhetoric is Fleeting and is Not Leadership

obama profile smileby Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

The inclination to uncontrollable urge for verbal diarrhea, motivated by narcissism and shallow intellectual abilities and not by wisdom and experience, is the ubiquitous attribute of the professionally challenged person. Indeed, in the conjunction between self-reproach for the actions of the ancestors and the idiotic mediatization of today’s politics, the most fatal errors in electoral judgment were committed in 2008 and then in 2012. These errors had two consequences. [Read more...]

Tea party groups’ suit against IRS moves forward

Tea party groups’ lawsuit against IRS over reported extra scrutiny moves forward

IRS Scandal Updateby Amanda Lee Myers

A federal judge has allowed a lawsuit by 10 tea party groups to move forward against the Internal Revenue Service, rejecting a request by the federal government to dismiss all the allegations that the agency subjected conservative groups to additional, often burdensome scrutiny.

In her ruling Thursday, Judge Susan Dlott allowed two of the tea party groups’ claims — including that the IRS discriminated and retaliated against them based on their views in violation of their free speech rights — to survive to trial. [Read more...]

Jonathan Turley: Congress ‘Must Act’ Against Obama’s Overreach or Face ‘Self-Destruction’

by Brendan Bordelon

Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley warned a panel of lawmakers that they “must act” in support of a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for executive overreach or face “self-destruction” as a deliberative body.

Turley appeared as a witness for the House Rules Committee on Wednesday as that panel considered advancing a proposed lawsuit that would check the White House’s recent moves to cut out Congress on issues like health-care reform, immigration and drug policy.

The George Washington University law professor — who supports many of President Obama’s policies but opposes their unilateral implementation — expressed his support for the lawsuit and his belief that Congress, as a coequal branch of government, has the standing to sue to presidency.

I,’ ‘Me,’ ‘My’—Obama Uses First Person Singular 199 Times in Speech Vowing Unilateral Action

Obama Smirkby Terence P. Jeffrey

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular–including the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my”–199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process.

“It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. [Read more...]

Obama Hasn’t Hit Rock Bottom Yet

obama_frownby Alex Castellanos

Ordinarily, being ranked as the worst modern president of the United States would be considered unfortunate. For you Mr. President, that’s the good news.

As painful as it is to note, your presidency has not yet hit bottom. You’ve got a long way to go in your descent.

Everywhere you walk, Mr. President, the world unravels. Americans are whispering that each political missile you fire seems to hit not its target but our own house.

You have undone the core idea you’ve advanced, that a larger public sector can save us. You are becoming the one-man Keystone Cops of an experiment in weakness and incompetent government. [Read more...]

We Need Stronger Oversight Of ICANN

by Peter Roff

icannWhoever controls the Internet may control the future of global commerce. As more and more commercial platforms are developed, commerce is moving from Main Street into cyberspace at a rate that will make the Internet the global shopping mall of the future.

This makes Internet governance issues all the more important. Right now most of them are decided by ICANN – the Internet Corporation for Assigned Named and Numbers – a California-based company which the U.S. government – which developed the Internet in the first place – has made responsible for most of the Internet’s essential functions like the creation of new, top level global domain names that will exist alongside such familiar standards as .com, .org, and .edu.

The Politicization of Morality and the Amorality of Politics

Orwellian Doublespeak Obamaby Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi 

Nothing can be more fatal to a nation’s well-being than an attempt at autocratic transformation of society by incompetent politicians. Lack of competence engenders fear and inferiority complex. Knowledge of flawed abilities creates the desire to compensate by adopting confrontational and even hostile attitudes toward intellectually superior opponents. When such a politician encounters criticism and ridicule, his or her feelings could degenerate into destructive hatred that has the potential to destroy the morality and jeopardize the normal existence of society.

Today’s progressives see themselves as the exclusive trustees of all political truths, the absolute champions of social justice, and the elitist vanguard of an economically perfectly fair society. However, by claiming omniscience and by stressing moral superiority, they have closeted themselves in their self-constructed ivory towers, thus have become ignorant of reality, and gradually have lost sight of the human dimensions of the American people’s everyday lives.
