Majority Republicans should ban Obama from allowing partial-birth abortions
 By Judi McLeod

If there is one subject that should not be left for the deceitful ‘debate’ of self-serving, bankrupt-of-morals politicians, it’s protecting the lives of unborn children.

ObamaCare Must Go!
 By Alan Caruba

Can anyone remember how awful the U.S. healthcare free market system was that it needed to be replaced by the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare?  Can’t remember? That’s because it was ranked one of the best of the world and represented 17.9% of the nation’s economy in 2014.  That’s down from the 20% it represented in 2009 when ObamaCare was foisted on Americans.

Yemen Crumbles, Iraq Stumbles, America Fumbles
 By David Singer

There are some 60 States in the American-led coalition pledged to degrading and destroying Islamic State—but only 21—regarded as “key members” were at the Conference in London on 22 January—which UK Foreign Minister Philip Hammond described in these terms:

Terror’s biggest advocate negotiates with Iran
 By A. Dru Kristenev

Even as President Obama gave his State of the Union address to the joint chambers of Congress Tuesday night, another domino was falling in Iran’s line-up of nation-state influence.

Newly Elected Toronto Mayor John Tory Predictably Breaks Campaign Promises and Veers to the Left
 By Mitch Wolfe

UN Session on Anti-Semitism: Words Versus Actions
 By Joseph A. Klein

Forty years ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the infamous Zionism equals Racism resolution. Thankfully, as a result of the prodigious efforts of former U.S. Ambassador to the UN John Bolton, this resolution was revoked by the General Assembly in 1991.  Nevertheless, the General Assembly and its subsidiary body the UN Human Rights Council have served as forums for anti-Semites trying to de-legitimize the Jewish state of Israel.

Greenpeace- Shooting Itself in the Foot
 By Jack Dini

Environmentalists often bristle when charged with being addicted to gloom-and-doom messages, but every now and then an environmental group will confirm the stereotype. In April 2006, Greenpeace mistakenly posted an incomplete draft press on its web site that read “In the twenty years since the Chernobyl tragedy, the world’s worst nuclear accident, there have been nearly [FILL IN ALARMIST AND ARMAGEDDONIST FACTOID HERE.].” (1)

Bankrupt? Who’s Bankrupt?
 By Dr. Robert R. Owens

A few years ago, with tongue securely in cheek, I wrote about the Fed buying Treasury Bonds. I tried using the absurd to make a point. I explained this would be like issuing your own credit card, buying everything you want, paying for the credit card with your checking account, and filling the checking account with cash advances from the credit card. I was just kidding. I never thought this would actually happen.

The Liberal Agenda: Trespass!
 By Andrew G. Benjamin   --American Politics

From the BBC:

“No one talks more about democracy, republicanism, self-government and liberty than Americans. But in truth Americans have no special skill at self-government - they are only good at dramatising their struggle for it. In many respects, the United States is the least democratic of the big democratic countries. The entire Constitution, fetishised by Americans to a religious degree, is designed to keep the country from ever actually becoming a representative democracy.”

The West: Desensitized to Islamic Violence
 By Raymond Ibrahim   --Crime-Terror-Security

Raymond Ibrahim

Following the January 7 massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, where Islamic gunmen killed a dozen people because the satirical magazine had mocked the prophet of Islam, one thing has become clear: the amount of atrocities committed in the name of Islam all around the world have become so frequent, so ubiquitous, that other, lesser hostilities by Muslims, which might once have been newsworthy, are now completely falling by the wayside, seen as minor and insignificant—commonplace, almost expected.

The Senate is Finally Getting Back to ‘Normal’ After the Disastrous Reign of Democrats,
 By Warner Todd Huston   --American Politics

Yes, we have some major problems with the Senate but there was a little good news coming out of the upper chamber this week. The new Senate Majority Leader, Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell, has gone back to allowing the minority party to begin the normal process of submitting amendments and actually voting on bills!

The Hollywood Jihad Against American Sniper
 By Daniel Greenfield   --American Politics

American Sniper is the movie that should not have existed. Even though the book was a bestseller, nobody in Hollywood wanted the rights.

And why would they?

Target Canada owes $3.4 billion to companies as it pulls up stakes
 By News on the Net   --Financial, Business, Economy

Target Canada owes hundreds of companies—including a baker’s dozen based in Winnipeg—a combined $3.4 billion, documents filed with the company’s court-appointed monitor show.

The Elimination of Christianity in the West Brings Disrespect for Life
 By Warner Todd Huston   --American Politics

Abortion activists are taking the next, logical step in their justification of abortion by agreeing that, yes, abortion kills a human baby, but… “so what?” It is just the next logical step in abortion apologia that results from the end of the Christian philosophical influence in society. But we don’t see that end affecting just abortion. We see it throughout society.

The United States of America Was Founded As, and Historically Has Been, a Christian Nation
 By Dale Summitt   --American Politics

Heated controversy and debate, filled with deep division between the political right and left, rages across America, over many issues.  One of the contentious issues is the claim on one side of the deep divide, adamantly claiming that America is not, nor ever was, a Christian nation.

Krauthammer’s Gas Tax Would Weaken America
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

In a recent Washington Post article, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called for a $1 per gallon hike in the gas tax. His main points are that a higher gas tax—coupled with payroll tax rebates—would boost the economy, and that reduced U.S. consumption would strike a blow against hostile foreign regimes. The first point is simply wrong; even with a payroll tax swap, a higher gas tax would hurt the economy on balance. And if reducing world oil prices is the geopolitical goal, then removing barriers to North American production is far more effective than starving U.S. consumers.

No time for Paris, no meeting with Netanyahu, but this woman? Obama will meet with her.
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

Over the last month or so, people have wondered about Obama’s ...priorities.  Actually, that’s not true. We’ve been wondering about them ever since he went MIA during Benghazi.  Lately, though, the President’s choices have been getting more and more erratic.  From his decision not to go to Paris, to his refusal to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu, it’s becoming pretty clear that Obama has some interesting ideas about how he spends his time.

Obama wants to start taxing 529 college savings withdrawals, but only after exempting his own
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

One of the less talked-about proposals President Obama offered this week was to take away the tax-exempt status of 529 college savings plans. These very popular plans allow parents to defer income - before it’s taxed - into savings accounts to then be withdrawn, also tax-free, to use for qualified college expenses.

White House Chief of Staff: Hillary Would Be a ‘Very Good President’
 By Heritage Foundation   --American Politics

In the wake of a State of the Union address heavy on confidence and promise, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough today charted a “urgent” and aggressive future for Democratic power.

White House threatens Netanyahu over D.C. visit - ‘There will be a price’
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

Benjamin Netanyahu is used to being threatened. His country is surrounded by a cadre of the worst nations on Earth - several of which have threatened to eliminate Israel from the face of the Earth. Now, however, when he’s not dealing with inbound rockets or Iran’s nuclear sabre rattling, Netanyahu will have a new enemy screaming at him. ...One who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Defeat For Green Lobby As EU Panel Rejects Cap-And-Trade Reforms
 By Guest Column   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The European Parliament’s industry committee failed to agree on a recommendation for a draft measure to curb a glut of carbon permits. The panel, which has an advisory role in the legislative process, rejected a report on a mechanism to withhold surplus allowances. In today’s final ballot, the industry committee voted 31 to 28, with seven abstentions, against an entire report even after approving individual amendments.—Ewa Krukowska and Ian Wishart, Bloomberg, 22 January 2015

Federal Agencies Stonewall House Committee’s Benghazi Investigation
 By Heritage Foundation   --American Politics

Some federal agencies continue to stonewall when it comes to the ongoing investigation into the Benghazi terrorist attacks, according to insiders familiar with the process. They say the House Benghazi Select Committee isn’t getting access to all relevant documents and witnesses.

Obama refusing to meet with Netanyahu during his March visit to U.S.
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

Now you know: The guy who is happy to throw the Constitution in the shredder if Congress won’t give him his way about pretty much anything at all is officially upset because Congress breached “protocol” by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address them.

Why the Left Refuses to Talk About Muslim Anti-Semitism
 By Daniel Greenfield   --American Politics

Even articles about Muslim Anti-Semitism rarely want to talk about Muslim Anti-Semitism. In the aftermath of the Kosher supermarket massacre in France, articles about the Muslim persecution of Jews in Europe nervously hover around the subject before swerving away to discuss the European far-right.

In an opinion piece from the Juneau Empire, 2014’s warm temperatures in Alaska sound apocalyptic:

Mendacity is Still the State of the Union
 By Roger Aronoff   --Media - Media Bias

Following last year’s State of the Union address by President Barack Obama, I titled my column “The State of the Union is Mendacity.” It is quite remarkable how little within it would need to be changed to have it apply to this week’s State of the Union. From the recovering economy, to negotiations with Iran, to the containment and defeat of “violent extremism,” to equal pay for women and the need to combat climate change, to a call for a minimum wage hike—there is little difference between the laundry lists presented by President Obama in 2014 and 2015.

CNN Caught Red-Handed Lying About French ‘No-Go Zones’ Debate
 By Warner Todd Huston   --Media - Media Bias

Early this week CNN went after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal after he insisted that there are “no-go zones” in France, parts of France filled with Muslims that French police would not go. CNN claimed this was untrue and attacked the Gov. for saying there was. But for months CNN has said exactly the same thing that Jindal said despite their sudden claims to the contrary.

Obama’s Climate Agreement with China: Is It Achievable?
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

Last November, President Obama reached a climate agreement with China where he agreed to reduce U.S. carbon dioxide emissions by 26 to 28 percent below the 2005 level in 2025 and China agreed to “make best efforts to” have its carbon dioxide emissions peak around 2030 and to increase the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption to around 20 percent by 2030.[1] To achieve the goals of this agreement, China needs to increase its natural gas use in lieu of coal and to increase its renewable share of generation. But, it faces obstacles to achieving both needs.

Iran, Obama, Boehner and Netanyahu
 By Caroline Glick   --American Politics

Iran has apparently produced an intercontinental ballistic missile whose range far exceeds the distance between Iran and Israel, and between Iran and Europe.

White House aide says Obama will crush Dems who dare oppose him on Cuba, Iran, Keystone, etc…
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

If you’re an unpopular lame duck President whose terrible policies have granted your opponents two wave elections, you’re bound to start noticing dissent among your supporters. For some Presidents that might mean that your pet projects will languish as your political friends become scarce. Not so for a petulant, frustrated man like Barack Obama.
