• Climate Change: Obama Is Making Promises He Can't Keep


    On April 22, Earth Day, leaders from countries around the world will attend a grand signing ceremony at the United Nations, officially reaffirming the greenhouse gas reduction pledges they made at last December’s U.N. climate conference in Paris.

    Instead of rushing to reaffirm that pledge, President Obama should be working to rescind it.

    Under the Paris Agreement, most major greenhouse gas-emitting countries offered rather timid emissions targets that aligned with existing projections. In contrast, President Obama pledged an aggressive goal of reducing U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by the year 2025. READ MORE...

  • Here’s the Evidence: These State Dept Transcripts Prove Hillary knew Benghazi was an Islamic Jihad Attack


    Anyone remember when Hillary Clinton claimed that the mother of fallen Benghazi hero Sean Smith was a liar and wrong? I do! Now, we are not only speculating about Clinton’s lies, along with Obama’s, but we have definitive proof that she lied and continues to lie in the face of the American people about the Islamic jihad attacks that took place in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, blaming them on an irrelevant video.

    Judicial Watch reports:

    Judicial Watch announced today it has obtained new documents from the Department of State containing the telephone transcripts from the evening of September 11, 2012, in which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton informs, then-Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil that the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi “had nothing to do with the film.” The documents include previously unreleased telephone transcripts with world leaders about the Benghazi attack.

  • POTUS goes to Riyadh


    Ahead of President Obama’s trip to Saudi Arabia, AEI experts are available to comment on the visit to Riyadh, on the state of US- Saudi Arabia relations, and on the implications for the broader Middle East.

    Former longtime senior professional staff member for the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Danielle Pletka:

    The relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia has long been dysfunctional. Saudi Arabia embodies in many ways the antithesis of every value the United States holds dear — religious freedom, human rights, minority rights, economic liberty — you name it. And then there’s the terrorism financing of recent decades, the support for Salafism and Wahhabism the world over. But the reality is that Riyadh and Washington have, despite these foundational differences, enjoyed a long partnership in the Middle East, because until recently the two have shared interests and common adversaries.

  • Federalizing The Trans Revolution


    According to a federal court, it’s a violation of federal law to require high school students to use the restroom that corresponds to their biological sex:

    A federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., ruled on Tuesday in favor of a transgender student who was born female and wishes to use the boys’ restroom at his rural Virginia high school. It was the first time a federal appellate court has ruled that Title IX — the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in schools — protects the rights of students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

  • Why Fight the 'Long War?'


    The United States appears on the cusp of doubling down on military tactics to fight terrorism. That’s a bad idea.

    On March 19, the latest American military member was killed in Iraq. A week later, the U.S.’s top general said he expects an increase in U.S. troop levels there shortly. Presidential hopefuls have offered their insights on the Islamic State, al Qaeda, and the Taliban, with one keeping open the possibility of using tactical nuclear weapons against the Islamic State. Pentagon planners are readying for another round of U.S. intervention in Libya. Most recently, arguably the most-respected general of the modern era, David Petraeus, called for a “sustained“ U.S.-led effort in the fight against Islamic extremism. READ MORE...

  • Craig Hemke: Silver & Gold – DB Turns State’s Evidence, The Flood Gates Are Now Open!


    The tinfoil hatters have once again prevailed. What has been called theory turns to fact, once again. It seems the people, citizen journalist, market analyst, and financial advisors, that actually do the necessary research and present an alternative view, are being vindicated on an almost daily basis. All of the naysayers will now have to put down the kool-aid and take another look at what is being reported on the internet. While there are equal amounts of garbage to offset the truly great information, isn’t it the same with mainstream media? Is there any difference in what we see on TeeVee or hear on the radio – equal parts garbage balanced with great information? READ MORE...
