Obama seeks freeze on Iran’s nukes

 Iran must commit to a verifiable freeze of at least 10 years on sensitive nuclear activity for a landmark atomic deal to be reached, but the odds are still against sealing a final agreement, U.S. President Barack Obama told Reuters on Monday.

The Clintons – Up to Their Old Tricks

Rich Galen,   The new, improved Hillary Clinton gave a speech that was treated as if it was the official opening of the Hillary for President campaign.

Yes Obama’s Amnesties Do Increase Deficits

Conn Carroll,  Yesterday I asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest to justify White House claims that President Obama’s immigration executive actions reduce federal deficits in light of a letter from the Congressional Budget Office showing that they increase on-budget deficits by $8.8 billion.

Democrats think Obama should be able to ignore court rulings if it’s “important”

Allahpundit,  A small reminder that Obama couldn’t get away with his authoritarian plays on immigration and health care if his party wasn’t backing him up. Turns out, in fact, that they’re willing to go even further than he is. Obama tends to limit himself to summarily rewriting federal statutes, like immigration laws and ObamaCare’s employer […] Continue reading →
