The Senate on Tuesday voted to advance President Obama’s trade agenda, approving a measure to end debate on fast-track authority.
The 60-37 motion sets up a vote on final passage on Wednesday. If the Senate approves fast-track or trade promotion authority (TPA), it would then be sent to Obama’s desk to become law.
Fast-track authority would allow Obama to send trade deals to Congress for up-or-down votes. The White House wants the authority to conclude negotiations on a sweeping trans-Pacific Read more [...]
Ali Michael, a writer for the Huffington Post, sometimes wishes she wasn't white. And she decided in her 20s that she would not "have biological children because I didn't want to propagate my privilege biologically."
In an article titled, "I Sometimes Don't Want to Be White Either," Ms. Michael details her feelings on being white and the Rachel Dolezal story.
Ms. Michael writes of Dolezal, "She is stuck in the immersion/emersion stage, in which White people, having learned extensively about Read more [...]
During the Sunday airing of Fox New Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked Karl Rove how America can stop violent attacks like the one the country witnessed in Charleston, South Carolina.
Rove said “acts of violence” will continue, until someone can force America to “repeal the Second Amendment.”
He quickly added his belief that such a repeal is an impossibility, and therefore not a viable idea — yet.
Here is Wallace’s exact question:
Karl, whether you agree with the president on Read more [...]
Michelle Obama recently visited the U.K., where, according to The Mirror, she “compared her struggle to succeed as a young black woman in America to the experience of inner-city Muslim girls.”
She “struggled to hold back tears,” said the Mirror, as she spoke to an audience of hijab-wearing Muslim girls at the Mulberry School for Girls in London’s notorious Muslim area, Tower Hamlets.
“Girls like you inspire me and impress me every single day,” she said. “When I look out at all Read more [...]
Lyndon Johnson said the word “nigger” a lot.
In Senate cloakrooms and staff meetings, Johnson was practically a connoisseur of the word. According to Johnson biographer Robert Caro, Johnson would calibrate his pronunciations by region, using “nigra” with some southern legislators and “negra” with others. Discussing civil rights legislation with men like Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who committed most of his life to defending white supremacy, he’d simply call it “the nigger Read more [...]
Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio said Saturday that he had "no problem" with Pope Francis' encyclical on climate change, but said he would only back policies that protect the nation's economy.
"I have no problem with what the pope did," the senator, who is Roman Catholic, said before speaking at Lincoln Day Dinner sponsored by the Miami-Dade County Republican Party. "He is a moral authority and as a moral authority is reminding us of our obligation to be good caretakers to the Read more [...]
In an emotional speech that heaped scorn and blame on America for failing to pass gun control measures while it supposedly perpetuates racism, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said white Americans need to “question our own assumptions and privilege.”
“We still allow guns to fall into the hands of people whose hearts are filled with hate. You can’t watch massacre after massacre and not come to the conclusion that President Obama has said, ‘We must tackle this challenge Read more [...]
Pope Francis was about to take a major step backing the science behind human-driven global warming, and Philippe de Larminat was determined to change his mind.
A French doubter who authored a book arguing that solar activity — not greenhouse gases — was driving global warming, de Larminat sought a spot at a climate summit in April sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nobel laureates would be there. So would U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, U.S. economist Jeffrey Read more [...]
China is giving the Islamic world a taste of its own medicine by refusing to allow the Muslim minority to practice their religion as they see fit.
I will never, ever advocate that freedom of religion should be infringed upon… but I will admit to feeling a bit of a pleasure to see some in the Muslim community being forced to suffer the same sleights that Islamic governments commit against Christians and other religious minorities in the Islamic world.
As Ramadan begins, China’s atheist government Read more [...]
During a interview on The Real Side radio program, Major General Paul E. Vallely (U.S. Army ret.) had some strong words for Barack Obama and his total failure to do anything to stop ISIS and protect the American people from a clear threat.
The General stated that Obama is a radical islamic sympathizer who supports the Muslim Brotherhood who have been working to establishment a worldwide caliphate and the application of sharia law.

Liberals always want to blame someone else for their problems in order to push some agenda. Predictably, the major news outlets and left-leaning politicians have all come out to use the Charleston church mass murder to renew calls for more gun control and to talk about how “White America” must pay for this atrocity. They don’t blame the one person who committed the act. Their solution is to foment racial and political divisiveness and push gun restrictions on everyone.
Hillary Clinton is Read more [...]
Obama on Thursday expressed profound “sadness and anger” at the Charleston church shooting as well as deeply personal frustration that America’s political climate makes it virtually impossible for now to tighten restrictions on who can buy firearms.
“We don’t have all the facts, but we do know that once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun,” Obama said in the White House briefing room, Vice Read more [...]
