While criticizing President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty on Saturday at the Iowa Freedom Summit, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said Obama was like “an overgrown little boy who is acting kind of spoiled” on the issue. Palin said that “an impatient president just doesn’t get to trample our Constitution and ignore Congress just he doesn’t get exactly what he wants every time he wants it.” She said it is time to “school our president on the rules.” Palin said that “with all due respect to the office of the presidency, it’s like an overgrown little boy who’s acting kind

Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said Sunday that terrorists are "using religion as a mask" to advance their "political motives," and compared the attacks on the Islamic faith in the U.S. to the way the country talks about race. "They are using religion as a mask to act on their political motives and trying to control people and cause all this mayhem," Abdul-Jabbar said on NBC´s "Meet the Press." He said aggressors who say they follow Islam have "this insane idea about what religious life is about and they are getting the world to buy it that this is what Islam

Evicted four months ago from their Highland Park apartment, Louis Morales and his 18-year-old stepson, Arthur Valenzuela, live half-hidden by brush along the nearby Arroyo Seco riverbed. Morales, 49, keeps a framed bible verse and a stuffed monkey in his tent. Water hauled by bike from a park heats up on the camp stove. Next door, their friend Johnny Salazar fixes bikes and shattered computer screens on the cheap for people who live in the neighborhood. A brother and sister Morales has known for years live up the river, and three couples stay down by the bridge. "Everybody here is from Highland Park,"

KEY WEST, Fla. - Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released in the Florida Keys if British researchers win approval to use the bugs against two extremely painful viral diseases. Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential U.S. neighborhood. "This is essentially using a mosquito as a drug to cure disease," said Michael Doyle, executive director of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, which is waiting to hear if the Food and Drug Administration will allow the experiment.

LOS ANGELES— “American Sniper” hit the mark with moviegoers again. The military drama starring Bradley Cooper as Navy SEAL marksman Chris Kyle topped the box office for a second weekend in a row with $64.4 million in first place, according to studio estimates Sunday. “American Sniper” is up for six Academy Awards, including best picture and best actor for Cooper.

Barack Obama will become the first US president to be chief guest at India´s Republic Day parade on Monday, a day after hailing a new era of friendship between the world´s biggest democracies. The invitation to the annual celebration of the birth of modern India is one of the biggest honours the country can bestow on a foreign leader and underscores the growing closeness between Obama and India´s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Security will be tight for the parade, a colourful display of India´s military might and cultural diversity showcasing everything from tanks and state-of-the-art weaponry to camels and traditional dancers.

Three Venezuelans and five Trinidadians will stand trial on January 26 under the suspicion of being involved in alleged Muslim terrorist activities in Venezuela. After nine months in prison, the defendants will appear in court to face charges of terrorism brought against them by the Attorney General Office. Suspicions of involvement in terrorist activities were further fuelled by cellphone images seized by SEBIN, Venezuela´s Intelligence Service, allegedly showing a group of foreigners – one of them wearing a turban – in firearms training on a Venezuelan National Police shooting range. The images were reportedly retrieved from a cellphone seized from one of

Abolish West Point — and the
other service academies, too
Washington Post, by Scott Beauchamp    Original Article

Most Americans are familiar with the prestige that surrounds the United States military service academies. Various names and phrases, spoken like solemn incantations, attest to their sacrosanct status: the Point, the Long Gray Line, Annapolis, cadets. Their graduates constitute a who’s who of American greatness, including Ulysses Grant, Jimmy Carter, novelist James Salter and sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein, to name a few. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, in a 1962 address at West Point, typified the veneration when he told the cadets that they were “the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense.” The service academies

A five-year-old girl has died in hospital three days after developing a strain of the flu that she was vaccinated against - as a deadly outbreak of the virus continues to sweep across the country. Keira Driscoll was prescribed steroids and a nebulizer at a Quick Care clinic after she started feeling unwell with a cough and a fever at her home in Clark County, Las Vegas, last Sunday. But just hours later, she collapsed. Her mother, Tiffany Driscoll, frantically performed CPR on her small body, before she was rushed to hospital. There, she was found to have influenza A.

Newton County, Ga. — Local parents told Channel 2 Action News they were upset when their fourth-grader came home with a work sheet that included the words "Po Pimp." Rapper Twista’s song, made nearly 20 years ago, is causing a stir in a local school system. Scott Tolleson went to the Newton County School Board this week after his fourth-grade son posed an unusual question. "What is po pimp? Try to explain to a fourth-grader what po pimp is," said Tolleson. He says his son came home with a language arts assignment about sentence structure; in it is a passage

Sarah Palin is the perfect

Sarah Palin says she’s seriously considering a 2016 presidential run. Why not? The GOP needs women on the ticket for many reasons, not least because it steals the Democratic Party’s thunder. They want to be the “first” at breaking cultural barriers and glass ceilings. With Hillary Clinton expected to be their front-runner in 2016, they’ll use her gender as a tactic to gin up support from their base — especially female voters. I can already see Emily’s List pushing out emails nationwide saying, “Let’s make history by electing the first female president of the United States.” It’s imperative Republicans put

In the early 1900s, a progressive economist named Henry George advocated the “single tax,” based on his belief that “individuals should own 100% of what they made or created but that everything found in nature, particularly land, should belong to everyone.” A proponent named Lizzie Magie created a board game to introduce his theories to the world. Under its eventual name, Monopoly, it would become one of the most popular board games in the world, with more than 275 million games sold. It also became a symbol of the very sort of aggressive capitalism Magie hoped to defeat. Magie’s invention was called

The live-blogging fell to the wayside earlier today, as the dynamics of the Iowa Freedom Summit press room has had the Townhall team bouncing around quite a bit. That is usually what happens at live political forums like this.

Glenn Reynolds, of Instapundit fame, is fond of saying that he’ll believe there’s a climate change crisis when the people who say there’s a climate change crisis start acting like there’s a climate change crisis. They haven’t started yet. The annual World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, for instance, is on right now and its attendees arrived in an estimated 1,700 private jets. Among the attendees are Al Gore and Pharrell Williams. They are in Davos to announce that there will be a repeat of 2007’s Live Earth concert, which was held in venues around the world that year to unite people

After a brief loss for words, Taya explained how grateful she is and how much the support means. "Thank you, I don’t even know what to say," Taya said. "It’s a bittersweet journey, obviously.

It never fails to amuse me when people who make their living peddling racial indignation work hard to associate negative characteristics with black people, blissfully unaware of how racist they are. The latest example comes from a black-oriented newspaper in Atlanta, called The Atlanta Blackstar (hat tip: Top Right News), which claims they are just alternative forms of the N-word. No kidding! The piece is titled, “The N-Word, Updated: 6 Code Words or Terms That Often Mean the Same Thing.” A favorite tactic is to claim that “code words” or else “dog whistles” are being used when negative words are

Sounding increasingly like a presidential candidate, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush hit the Democratic bastion of San Francisco Friday, arguing that the next president must concentrate on “restoring America’s leadership in the world” abroad, while promoting policies at home that help Americans “move up the economic ladder.” “We’re starving for leadership in the public realm,” said Bush, who lambasted President Obama for what he called divisive politics with Congress on the domestic front and a lackluster foreign policy, which he said has emboldened terrorist groups like Islamic State. “This president, with all due respect, doesn´t think the U.S. being a

President Obama has proposed setting aside more than 12 million acres of the Alaska coast as wilderness in a move that will pit him against Republicans from the state. Obama’s plans to impose strict federal protections over an expanded portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would keep Alaskans from accessing the wealth of petroleum reserves that lay below the “fragile” habitat there. “I’m very proud that my Department of Interior has put forward a comprehensive plan to make sure we’re protecting the refuge and that we’re designating new areas, including coastal plains, for preservation,” the president said from his

Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, the film covering the life of an American Navy SEAL with the most confirmed “kills” during the course of his duty, has led to an increase in threats against Muslims in the US since its release, an Arab-American civil rights group has claimed. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) has written to Eastwood and the film’s star, Bradley Cooper, claiming that “the majority of the violent threats we have seen over the past few days are the result of how Arabs and Muslims are depicted in American Sniper”, which follows the career of Chris Kyle while he

I’m sure the lads and lasses at GCHQ and the “Ms” and “Qs” of our intelligence services want more and more “tools” to combat the army of world terror which confronts us. (Snip) The problem with all this is not that MI5’s radar might grow dark. It’s that any sane intelligence officer in the UK knows well that the “terrorist” threat grows not in proportion to the clarity of his or her radar screen, but to the hypocrisy and brutality of British, US and other Western policies in the Middle East. For if Mr Parker and his crew really want to protect us, they have only to look at the plight of the occupied Palestinians,
