OBAMA’S COMEBACK CUT SHORT Just a few weeks ago, the sun was shining again in Obamaland. The economy was snapping out of its six-year funk, thanks in large part to cheap gasoline, liberals were pumped up about executive action on immigration, no one else had died of Ebola and the press and public were swooning over Cuba. A conventional wisdom that had concluded just a month prior that President Obama was a failure, scampered right past “comeback kid” and ran all the way to “conquering hero.” The seeming conclusion was that if only the country could have seen January, November would have looked completely different. And then everything started to fall apart overseas again. [AP: “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned trip to Washington in March is kicking up a diplomatic dust storm in the nation's capital. On Thursday, the White House said President Barack Obama would not meet the Prime Minister when he comes to the U.S. to address a joint session of Congress.] Things fall apart ...

David Cay Johnston: Obama launches tax ploy against GOP State of the Union address pushes tax reforms to set stage for 2016 electoral fight, January 21, 2015 2:00AM ET "The most political law in America is the federal tax code. Far from being grounded in sound economics and the Constitutional duty to promote the general welfare, it’s shaped by influence won with campaign contributions and lobbying. We are about to see just how political tax law is thanks to a savvy move by President Barack Obama to frame the 2016 election in ways that will help Democrats keep the White House. In his State of the Union address, the president proposed a host of tax ideas Republicans have long advocated in order to force them to choose between Main Street and Wall Street... Obama’s proposals would cost $230 billion over ten years — less than $2 billion per month. The cost of this modest tax relief for Middle Class Americans would be paid by raising taxes at the top by $320 billion — a bit more than $2.6 billion per m ...
Did President Obama say it right ? That this country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules.' He laid out ways we can create more opportunities for working families -- helping students get an education without getting crushed by debt, expanding access to paid sick time and family leave, and investing in medical and scientific research for the future. He also made clear that the White House will push back hard against efforts to roll back critical Wall Street reforms. Families just need a level playing field, and if they can get it, we can rebuild America's great Middle Class. It's time to get started. And did Sen. Joni Ernst firmly seized -- and waved -- the mandate Republicans believe they won in the November midterm elections, which swept her party into power in the Senate, as she delivered the Republican response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address ? You decide.
Security of state head responsible for host nation, says Minister of State Kiren Rijiju: Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju has said the security of any state head visiting the country is the responsibility of the host nation as a whole. Rijiju's comments come in the backdrop of multi-tier security arrangements being made for US President Barack Obama's visit for this year's Republic Day celebrations. Obama will arrive in New Delhi on January 25 to take part in Republic Day celebrations on the invitation of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. He will be the first US President to attend a Republic Day celebration, the White House said. Obama, who visited India in 2010, would also be the first U.S. president to visit the country twice while in office. "Any head of the state's visit has to be taken care of. It is a sovereign responsibility. It is not a question of one president of a country. It is the incumbent upon the security agencies, the whole state. As a nation, it is our responsibly," Rijiju said. Oba ...

Mitt Romney considering a run for US Presidential elections 2016: Mitt Romney, the Republican US presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors on Friday that he is considering another White House run in 2016, a source familiar with the comments said. The former Massachusetts governor, who has sent mixed signals about the likelihood of another campaign, told a small group of donors in New York that he was thinking about running and to "tell your friends" he was considering it, the source said. The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the comments, said Romney did not give a timetable for making a decision about whether to launch what would be his third presidential campaign. Romney failed to win the nomination in 2008 and lost the general election to President Barack Obama in 2012. Romney's statement comes as some of the party's top donors begin to line up behind former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who said in December he would actively explore a presidential run. If Romney entered the race, he ...
Barack Obama's Adviser John Podesta to potentially run Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign: Hillary Clinton will draw differences with President Barack Obama if she runs for the White House and Obama expects that, according to John Podesta, an adviser to the president and a potential campaign chairman for the former secretary of state. Podesta, a former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton who is now counselor to Obama, said he would depart the White House next month. "I'm probably going to leave in early February," he told Reuters in an interview. "Then I've got to figure out what I'm doing in life." Figuring that out will depend largely on whether Clinton, a former senator and first lady, decides to run for president again, as she is expected to do. Podesta has been mentioned frequently as a likely chairman of her campaign. "If she decides to run, I told her I'd do anything I can to help her," he said, adding it was "up to her" whether he served as chair. "I started going door to door in Iowa in ...

SALT LAKE CITY — Mitt Romney is eyeing a third run for the White House and will get in the race in the coming months if he doesn't like how the GOP field is looking. Even if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush appears to be headed for the GOP nomination, Romney could still get in the race. If it's Ted Cruz that's the candidate, he's in. Romney is getting plenty of encouragement to run, both from the donors who funded his previous campaigns, as well as those who now wished he'd beaten President Barack Obama. Mitt Romney is too much of a patriot to just concede the presidency to the Democrats. Romney will or will not announce that he is running within three and six months. Christie, along with Cruz and other conservative Republicans including Utah Sen. Mike Lee, are set to appear at the Iowa Freedom Summit in January, sponsored by Citizens United and Rep.

Hillary Clinton beat Jeb Bush in 2016 poll matchup Presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton would comfortably defeat Jeb Bush for president if the two members of their famous US political clans went head to head in 2016, poll results showed Monday. A CNN-ORC poll showed former Florida Governor Bush, the son and brother of two former US presidents, as the Republican Party’s clear frontrunner for the White House, nearly two weeks after he announced he was “actively” exploring a presidential bid. With 23 percent of respondents’ votes, Bush outpaced New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (13 percent), conservative physician Ben Carson (seven percent), former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and Senator Rand Paul (both six percent) as top Republican contender in the race to see who will succeed President Barack Obama two years from now. Senator Marco Rubio and congressman Paul Ryan were at five percent support, with several others, including conservative Senator Ted Cruz and Wisconsin Governor Scott ...

Hawks in Congress have already called on the president to deploy available nonmilitary tools to punish North Korea.

KO VITI KEI VURAVURA@ WATCH-FM: * PUTIN HOLDS LATE-NIGHTS TALKS ON UKRAINE WITH EUROPEAN LEADERS: MOSCOW (AFP) - Russia's President Vladimir Putin and his French, German and Ukrainian counterparts agreed in a phonecall early Wednesday that they wanted talks between Kiev, Moscow and rebels controlling parts of eastern Ukraine to resume as soon as possible. The telephone conversation came after the White House confirmed that US President Barack Obama will sign into law fresh sanctions against Russia. *REPORTS OF U.S. GROUND FIGHTERS EMERGE AS ISIS GAINS IN IRAQ: No matter how many bombs Americans drop on ISIS forces, Iraqi troops are losing ground.

Maybe that’s why we had reports from an Iraqi field commander on Tuesday that U.S. forces had their first ground clash with ISIS terrorists at midnight on Monday, Baghdad time.

OBAMA TO NOMINATE Ashton Carter AS Defense Secretary: President Barack Obama is expected to nominate Pentagon official Ashton Carter as Defense Secretary, replacing the embattled Chuck Hagel who resigned last week, according to multiple reports. The Associated Press reports that Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma says he was informed of the decision early Tuesday. CNN also is reporting that Carter is the president's choice. Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, says he supports the choice of Carter to lead the Pentagon "very strongly." White House officials say no final decision has been made. "I support it very strongly," Inhofe said. "I'm very pleased he is going to be our secretary of defense. I can't imagine that he's going to have opposition to his confirmation." Carter, a former deputy secretary at the Department of Defense, has long been considered a leading candidate for the job to replace Hagel. A spokeswoman for Carter had no immediate comment on the report.

WASHINGTON D.C. — On a trip to Afghanistan during President Barack Obama's first term, Defense Secretary Robert Gates was stunned to find a telephone line at the military's special operations headquarters that linked directly back to a top White House national security official. "I had them tear it out while I was standing there," Gates said earlier this month as he recounted his discovery. "I told the commanders, 'If you get a call from the White House, you tell them to go to *** and call me.'" To Gates, the phone in Kabul came to symbolize Obama's efforts to micromanage the Pentagon and centralize decision-making in the White House. That criticism later would be echoed publicly and pointedly by Gates' successor, Leon Panetta. The president's third Pentagon chief, Chuck Hagel, was picked partly because he was thought to be more deferential to Obama's close circle of White House advisers. But over time, Hagel also grew frustrated with what he saw as the West Wing's insularity. There have been similar g ...

November 24, 2014, President Barack Obama awarded the Medal of Freedom to the three Civil Rights workers who were killed in June 1964 in Neshoba County, Mississippi [at the same White House ceremony in which Suzan Harjo was awarded her Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian official honor]. In 1964's Mississippi FREEDOM SUMMER, 25-year-old Ponca Indian and National Indian Youth Council officer CLYDE WARRIOR had worked with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians at Philadelphia, Neshoba County, Mississippi, to accelerate Indian involvement in Civil Rights and voting rights efforts. [Also in 1964, Clyde had come to Washington State with Marlon Brando to participate in Fish-Ins and to speak at the Capitol protest of 2,000 Indians in Olympia - staying before and after that activity with the Makah's Bruce Wilkie at Neah Bay - where also the 1964 Annual Meeting of NIYC was held.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Many immigrants in the United States illegally who apply for work permits under President Barack Obama's new executive actions would be eligible for Social Security and Medicare benefits upon reaching retirement age, according to the White House. Under Obama's actions, immigrants who are spared deportation could obtain work permits and a Social Security number. As a result, they would pay into the Social Security system through payroll taxes. No such "lawfully present" immigrant, however, would be immediately entitled to the benefits because like all Social Security and Medicare recipients they would have to work 10 years to become eligible for retirement payments and health care. To remain qualified, either Congress or future administrations would have to extend Obama's actions so that those immigrants would still be considered lawfully present in the country. None of the immigrants who would be spared deportation under Obama's executive actions would be able to receive federal assist ...

President Barack Obama spent a quiet Thanksgiving at the White House where the belly-stuffing menu featured all the holiday's basics. He also continued a tradition of telephoning members of the Armed Forces to thank them for their service.
Washington: It is an annual tradition for the past 25 years that the US president formally pardons a turkey at the White House on the eve of Thanksgiving. President Barack Obama pardoned this year's lucky turkeys at a brief ceremony. "I am here to announce what I'm sure will be the most talked about executive action this month," Xinhua quoted Obama as saying Wednesday, referring to the executive actions he issued last week on immigration that are opposed by Republicans. "Today I'm taking an action fully within my legal authority -- the same kind of action taken by Democrat and Republican presidents before me -- to spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese, from a terrible and delicious fate," he added. Cheese was voted online to become the official National Thanksgiving Turkey this year, Obama said. Only Cheese was on hand for the ceremony. Both Cheese and Mac were raised at Cooper Farms in US state of Ohio. The birds will get to live out the rest of their days on a Virginia estate, Obama said.
Pentagon chief Hagel out as Islamic State war heats up Wed, 26 Nov 2014 WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama announced the departure of US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday, with the White House under fire over perceived fumbling in its response to the Islamic State threat. The former Republican senator, who has been in the job for less than two years, was chosen to oversee a shift to a peacetime military with smaller defense budgets, but found the United States at war again. Rapid advances by Islamic State jihadists in Syria and Iraq forced the Pentagon chief into managing a complex campaign, and Obama concluded Hagel was not the man for the task. The 68-year-old Vietnam War veteran joined Obama at the White House to confirm his departure. When I asked Chuck to serve as secretary of defense we were entering a significant period of transition: the drawdown in Afghanistan, the need to prepare our forces for future missions and tough fiscal choices to keep our military strong and ready,Obama said.

American arms manufacturers and congressional “Hawks” are pressing the Obama administration to launch “a clandestine war against Syria,” using the ISIL terrorist organization as a pretext, an international lawyer says. “The simple fact is that a number of US corporate arms suppliers grew fat on easy money from a decade of arms deals with Iraq at the US taxpayers’ expense. Now they want more,” said Barry Grossman, who is based in Indonesia’s Bali Island, in a phone interview. “There is also those within the apparatus of government-- both on the political side and the security apparatus-- who have other agendas and who want to drum this up into a clandestine war against Syria,” he added. Senior members of Congress have stepped up pressure on the White House to more forcefully deal with ISIL days after President Barack Obama said “we don’t have a strategy yet” to confront the militant group. Representative Mike Rogers, a Republican from Michigan who heads the House Intelligence Comm ...

AND THE SAD NEWS COME IN The U.S. Senate has just rejected a proposal to fast-track the approval of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. Pipeline supporters needed 60 votes to win approval for the bill, but it went down to defeat by a margin of 59-41. Even if passed, the bill was not expected to pass muster with U.S. President Barack Obama, who had hinted strongly he would veto the bill, which is designed to short-circuit the White House's own environmental review process. We needed a single vote to get it passed and we have failed to get it. We are going back to the drawing board for we need these jobs for our children, and we need the pipe to be installed with Americans than installing it with China or Russia who are on the door waiting on us. Do not despair the pipe is going in, they are delaying a very inevitable. it would have been good if the senate passed it, it has not passed it but that does not mean it is not a done deal. So nothing really has changed by this vote. But we would have rather .. ...

From Richard Buckner, "Lt. Col. Peters: Military Appalled at Administration's 'Incompetence' Military officials are appalled at the "willful incompetence" of the administration of President Barack Obama and its interference in the campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS), said Lt. Col. Ralph Peters. "We've a president so arrogant, an administration so arrogant, they think they know how to run military tactical affairs, not just strategic, but tactical affairs, better than military professionals. "Everyone is appalled at the incompetence, the willful incompetence of this White House," Peters, a retired Army Lt. Col., told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Monday. Peters said recent statements by Robert Gates & Leon Panetta, both former secretaries of defense and directors of the CIA, showed they were "angry" about the micromanagement of the White House in military affairs. Speaking at the Reagan Library over the weekend, Gates claimed the White House was making military decisions based on politics. "When ...
They Knew It They KNEW they were committing war crimes... and LOVED it. WASHINGTON -- A six-year-old memo from within the George W. Bush administration that came to light this week acknowledges that White House-approved interrogation techniques amounted to "war crimes." The memo's release has called attention to what has changed since President Barack Obama took office, but it also raises questions about what hasn't. The Bush White House tried to destroy every copy of the memo, written by then-State Department counselor Philip Zelikow. Zelikow examined tactics like waterboarding -- which simulates drowning -- and concluded that there was no way they were legal, domestically or internationally. “We are unaware of any precedent in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, or any subsequent conflict for authorized, systematic interrogation practices similar to those in question here," Zelikow wrote. The memo has been obtained by George Washington University's National Security Archive and Wired's Spen ...
From the 'Prediction Fails' File In his 2009 book, "40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation," Clinton campaign architect James Carville wrote this in the opening paragraph of the preface: "Every four years Americans hold a presidential election. Somebody wins and somebody loses. That's life. But 2008 was an anomaly. The election of President Barack Obama is about something far bigger than four or even eight years in the White House. Since 2004, Americans have been witnessing and participating in the emergence of a Democratic majority that will last not four but forty years. Republicans are going to keep getting spanked again and again for 40 more years because we're right and they're wrong, and Americans know it." Oops. - from the Patriot post

Power shift in U.S. Senate brings sterner tone to foreign policy debate The Republican takeover of the U.S. Senate will bring a tough new tone to the debate over Washington's foreign policy, with lawmakers expected use their new clout and power over the budget to promote a more interventionist foreign policy. While leaders of the Democratic-majority Senate mostly backed President Barack Obama's international goals, Republicans plan to pressure the White House to take a tougher line on Iran, Russia and Islamic State fighters in Iraq and Syria. "I think the Congress can and will be heard from, particularly on the funding side," John Thune, a member of the Senate's Republican leadership, said in a telephone interview. After Republicans, who already controlled the House of Representatives, won a majority in the Senate on Tuesday, two of Washington's most vocal foreign policy hawks, John Mccain and Lindsey Graham, came in line to chair two key Senate panels. McCain, who has advocated a more robust response in ...
President Barack Obama officially nominated Loretta Lynch, a United States attorney from New York, as the next Attorney General of the United States at a White House ceremony Saturday. Speaking from the Roosevelt Room, President Obama said Lynch is "tough, fair" and who throughout her career has followed the principles of "fairness, equality and justice." Lynch said it would be an honor to "lead the department that I love." If confirmed by the Senate, Lynch will be the first African-American woman to hold the post.
151 years later, Medal of Honor for Alonzo Cushing, Civil War hero By Phil Gast (CNN) “Faithful unto death." Those words on the West Point headstone of 1st Lt. Alonzo H. Cushing succinctly enshrine the determination of the man who helped turn the tide at Gettysburg during the Civil War. Despite two severe wounds, Cushing, 22, stayed at his post and directed artillery fire upon hordes of Confederate soldiers charging the center of the Union line at Cemetery Ridge -- a doomed assault known as Pickett's Charge. A bullet to the head finally felled the young officer. More than 151 years after his stand, Cushing received the Medal of Honor in a White House ceremony. "As our country struggled for its survival, President Lincoln dedicated the battlefield at Gettysburg as a final resting place for those who died here that the nation might live," President Barack Obama said. "Today the nation that lived pauses to pay tribute to one of those who died there." The Medal of Honor is the country's highest military awa ...

Did you celebrate Halloween this year? Celebrated in the United States on October 31, Halloween is a time for parties, games and treats.

Obama hugs nurse Nina Pham who survived Ebola Washington, Saturday, October 25, 2014 US President Barack Obama greeted nurse Nina Pham in the Oval Office with a big hug to celebrate her recovery from the Ebola virus, which she was the first person in the country to contract. Obama met with Pham, 26, in the White House, where photographers immortalised an embrace that reflected the president's wish to calm American citizens following the arrival of Ebola in the country. The meeting was closed to the press and only photographers were allowed in the Oval Office to record the event. The nurse, who in a Dallas hospital contracted the virus while looking after a Liberian infected with Ebola, was released Friday morning from the medical centre of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where she was treated. NIH authorities said in a communique that Pham was "free" of the virus, and soon afterwards the nurse left the medical centre. Before her meeting with Obama, she did not have to pass t ...

" It turned out, I guess, I don't use it enough, to so they thought there was some fraud going on," said Obama. "Fortunately, Michelle had hers." Obama and the first lady dined at New York City restaurant Estela on Sept. 24 while he attended the annual UN meeting.

Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning. President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flak since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview with CBS, “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.” But we know that isn’t true, as nearly a dozen administration officials have ...

~ According to several senior-ranking White House officials, President Barack Obama will resign from office on January 1st 2015, after learning that a so-called “Smoking Gun” story regarding the Benghazi scandal will soon be revealed. Those sources claim Obama will announce his resignation shortly after the midterm elections in November. The decision to resign came after reporters from Fox News were allegedly contacted in August by a survivor of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, who came forward with shocking video evidence that Obama, then- White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew, and then- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew that an attack on the US diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya was “imminent,” and intentionally ordered key security personnel to leave the facility and travel eight blocks away. Sources at Fox News say that the unidentified survivor allegedly recorded a video teleconference on his cell phone in which Lew gave the orders, while Obama and Clinton watched on. “You don ...

Our keynote speaker Howard Leonhardt shares how he raised $35,000 with $1,000 each from 35 non-accredited investors for his first company, paid $20,000 to the lawyer, and built a company with $15,000. That experience changed his views completely on how companies raise money. When his lawyer asked him to contact millionaires who can invest, he came up with zero name. He didn't know of any. He eventually sold this company to Medtronic for a few hundred million. His company created one of the first stents that helps heart patients. Fascinating journey. Howard was one of the original architects of the JOBS act. Crowdfunding owes him a debt of gratitude.

Of course, the White House press staff spins it as a misunderstanding. Somehow, I'll bet, the Joint Chiefs of Staff knows more of what he's talking about than the President - you think?: TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - President Barack Obama says U.S. forces in Iraq "do not and will not" have a combat mission as part of the effort against Islamic State militants. Obama received a briefing Wednesday from officers at U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida. That command oversees military efforts in the Mideast. The president says the fight against the Islamic State group cannot be America's alone and will require a broad coalition. He says some nations will assist the U.S. with airstrikes and others will help train forces. On Tuesday, the top U.S. military officer said American ground troops may be needed to battle the militants if Obama's current strategy fails.

First is continuing systematic (air) strikes in Iraq and probably Syria against the Islamic State (IS). Second is supporting local (i.e. Iraqi and Kurdish) and regional (i.e. Free Syrian Army) ground forces to roll IS back. Third is applying U.S. counter-terrorism capacities to prevent further IS attacks. And fourth is providing humanitarian assistance to people displaced by this conflict.

House condemns Obama for prisoner swap Sep 9th 2014 5:44PM Comments BY DONNA CASSATA WASHINGTON (AP) - The Republican-controlled House voted Tuesday to condemn President Barack Obama for failing to give 30-day notice to Congress about the exchange in May of American prisoner Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders held at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The vote was 249-163, with 22 Democrats - many locked in tough re-election races - breaking ranks and backing the nonbinding resolution. "By setting free five top Taliban commanders from U.S. custody, the Obama administration made Americans less safe," Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement. The vote castigating Obama came at a crucial moment for the administration as it sought to rally international and congressional support for steps to combat the rising threat of Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria. The debate and vote coincided with a White House meeting in which the president discussed his strategy with House and Senate leader ...
