Obama Administration


A rewrite of the State Department’s arms control regulations could potentially grant the State Department a wide-ranging power to monitor and control gun-related speech on the Internet. The State Department is updating the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and has amended the existing regs to include “making technical data available via a publicly available …

Even as news reports have been highlighting the gun control provisions of the Administration’s “Unified Agenda” of regulatory objectives (see accompanying story), the Obama State Department has been quietly moving ahead with a proposal that could censor online speech related to firearms. This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal …

The Obama administration’s Spring 2015 “Unified Agenda”–published May 22 2015 – shows that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) are pushing a number of new gun control rules for implementation by executive fiat. It was previously reported that these rules will further limit the number of people …

At a recent White House science fair celebrating inventors, a Girl Scout who helped design a Lego-powered page-turning device asked President Obama what he had ever thought up or prototyped. Stumbling for an answer, he replied: “I came up with things like, you know, health care.” Ah, yes. “Health care.” Remember when the president’s signature …

She’s baaaaaaaack. And she’s maaaaaad. First lady Michelle Obama delivered the commencement address at Tuskegee University last weekend. She’ll do it again at Ohio’s Oberlin College — the UC Berkeley of the Midwest, Ground Zero for racial grievance-mongering and fake hate crimes —next week. Commencement FLOTUS is not the same first lady who shows up …

Is it too soon to begin to sum up President Obama’s “legacy”? Possibly, but after six years we know enough to draw some conclusions. There is much to protest on any given day Obama sits in the Oval Office with all its powers at his disposal. The Constitution granted the executive branch considerable power, particularly …

I’ve always believed that the Benghazi cover-up was about two presidential campaigns:  Barack Obama’s reelection campaign and Hillary Clinton’s nascent presidential campaign. Why else would Hillary Clinton personally send out lies about Benghazi within hours, and then keep on pushing these lies until the truth could no longer be ignored.  The truth about an attack …

In his recent trip to India, President Obama repeated a long-standing pattern of his — denigrating the United States to foreign audiences. He said that he had been discriminated against because of his skin color in America, a country in which there is, even now, “terrible poverty.” Make no mistake about it, there is no …

I’m gonna go out on a limb, here, and speculate that pre-2008 you would probably never see this kind of thing coming from a bunch of high school aged girls. But, perhaps in the wake of electing the first black president who seems to enjoy fanning the racial flames, all the Ferguson/NY shootings, and the …

Oh, woe is she. In an “exclusive” interview with People magazine this week, first lady Michelle Obama lamented the “sting” of “racist experiences” that she and her husband allegedly still suffer. My message for America’s Marie Antoinette? Cry me a river. To show how she’s down with The Struggle of post-Ferguson agitators, Mrs. Obama cited …

John Lott’s newest piece at Fox News explains the dangers that police face and starts this way: As a response to the police shooting of Michael Brown, President Obama proposes $263 million for police training and body cameras.  But more police training wouldn’t have prevented the Brown shooting and the president’s proposal plays into the hands of those who blame …

Last week, when “Fox & Friends” highlighted my most recent column, titled “Neutering Religious Holidays,” liberals came out of the woodwork to try to defend President Barack Obama’s record. So I decided to do a little research and see just how spiritual his past Thanksgiving addresses have been and compare them with the thoughts of …

As Eric Holder’s disastrous reign as attorney general comes to a close, he counts among his and his anti-gun administration’s biggest failures the inability to further restrict American’s Second Amendment rights. Considering his track record (we’re still dealing with the ramifications of the infamous Fast and Furious debacle, among other things), that’s saying something. Anti-gunners …

One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done its …

You’ve got to admire the sheer audacity: Democratic Senator Mark Begich telling Alaska voters that he stood up to President Obama and fought for oil drilling and jobs in his state. Maybe he had a few chats. But he certainly knew his concerns and opinions meant nothing, changed nothing, accomplished nothing. And then he voted …

The news that the U.S. Air Force, joined at long last by some of the Arab nations most threatened by the Islamic State (ISIS), began bombing their headquarters and military sites in Syria was long overdue, but welcome. It took time because Obama had originally dismissed ISIS as a threat. It no doubt took time …

The CIA reported this past Thursday that the number of Islamic State fighters is actually three times what previous government estimates were, according to Fox News. A spokesperson for the intelligence agency explained that the radical Islamic group boasts between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria. Those numbers fly in the face of …
