    President Obama’s Permanent Presidency?

    Imagine if President Obama and his policies never left office.

    Imagine if the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in the IRS, DOJ, HHS, DHS, and other federal agency could target conservatives, “piece together” charges against patriots, and force a permanent partisan progressive agenda on the American people.

    That’s the reality we face in America today. But there is something we can do.

    Jihad Struck Texas But Will the Obama Administration Continue to Bury Its Head in the Sand

    Jihad struck Texas last night. It’s just the latest skirmish in a global radical Islamic assault on free speech – on freedom.

    It’s a war. ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, and al Qaeda are just a few of the named brigades in this radical Islamic jihadist army.

    The two Islamic terrorists who opened fire on a free speech art exhibit in Texas are merely the latest casualties in this war. But they are a reminder of who the enemy is.

    Babies Born Alive After Botched Abortions are being Murdered or Left to Die Globally

    Two years ago I told you about the grizzly practice of babies being born alive after botched abortions and then grotesquely murdered.

    They are physically strangled, mutilated, or left to die on the abortionist’s table.

    This vile desecration of human rights takes place not only in the us, but all across the world at a stunning rate. The worst part is that the medical community has begun attempting to cover it up.

    President Obama’s “Less-Than-Loving” Easter Attack on Christians Should “Concern” You

    President Obama, who won’t call out radical Islam for beheading Christians, is spewing verbal vitriol against Christians.

    President Obama began his remarks at an Easter Prayer Breakfast this week saying he is “concerned” about “less-than-loving” Christians.

    Obama Administration’s Justice Department Refuses to Seek Justice for Targeted Americans

    The Obama Administration’s IRS targeted Americans for their political beliefs. Former top IRS official Lois Lerner abused the power of her office and refused to answer any questions from congressional oversight committees after proclaiming her own innocence.

    The House Oversight Committee recommended specific action be taken to prosecute her criminally and voted her in contempt of Congress, yet the Obama Administration’s Justice Department has done nothing to pursue justice.

    Two Genocidal Jihadist Armies Merge in the Cowardice of Silence

    The “Islamic State Africa.” Not the words anyone wanted to hear, but it should come as no surprise.

    The most barbarically brutal jihadist army in Africa, Boko Haram, has joined with the most heinous jihadist army in the Middle East, ISIS – the Islamic State.

    Boko Haram, as we have long warned, is every bit as horrific in its atrocities as ISIS. It has slaughtered thousands of Christians, destroyed Christian villages, and gunned down worshipers.

    Palestinian Authority Directly Responsible for Terrorist Attacks on Israel

    My colleagues and I at the ACLJ have long warned about the dangers of embracing the Palestinian “unity government” formed by the Palestine Authority and the terrorist group Hamas.

    Now a federal court has held that the Palestinian Authority itself is directly responsible for terrorist attacks carried out on Israeli civilians.

    Hollywood’s Self-Indulgent Delusional Demagoguery

    Last night, Hollywood conducted its annual ritual of worshiping at the altar of self-indulgence and self-love, the Oscars.

    As part of this cultish ritual, the event included the traditional parade of political leftist propaganda. The liberal elites of Hollywood take to the microphone to tout whatever the leftist cause de jour happens to be, as the rest of Hollywood eats it up with standing ovations.

    For anyone who has an ounce of critical thinking ability (critical thinking, not PC dogmatic zombism), it’s almost unbearable to watch (it’s like watching sausage being made, with rotten meat, and then watching someone eat it, on prime-time TV).

    The Disconnect Between President Obama and President Obama on ISIS

    President Obama is now asking Congress for authority to declare war on ISIS – the Islamic State – something ISIS declared on America more than two years ago.

    Putting aside the debate of whether he actually needs congressional authority to continue to take the fight to this terrorist army or whether what he is requesting being authorized to do is sufficient, there is a vast conflict and contrast emerging within President Obama’s “strategy.”

    Finally Someone on the Left Gets It: It’s Not “Violent Extremism,” It’s Radical Islam

    Finally, someone on the Left gets it.

    You won’t hear me say that often, but when someone is right, they’re right.

    Iraq War veteran and current Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-2) didn’t mince words in explaining how she feels about the Obama Administration’s insistence that we only refer to terrorists as “violent extremists” and not radical Islamists.
