Obama Gives Turkey Amnesty

President Obama used the annual turkey pardon to poke fun at his Republican opponents: President Obama joked Wednesday about his executive actions giving legal status to as many as 5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, saying his Thanksgiving pardon of a turkey would doubtlessly be criticized as “amnesty.” Obama said the pardon of […]

President Obama’s former smoking habit has reared its head again in the form of media reports that he copped a smoke with pop legend Billy Joel during a White House visit last year. The right-wing media has eagerly repeated the tale, but it all started on Judy Kurtz’s The Hill blog, In The Know: According […]

Sheriff Joe Arpaio joined Alan Colmes on his show last night to explain why he’s suing President Obama over his executive action on immigration.

Colmes noted that Obama will not allow criminals to stay […]

Barack Obama is acting like the opposite of a lame duck whose party just lost an election. In the 10 days since “we got beat,” as he put it, by Republicans who captured the Senate and bolstered control over the House, Mr. Obama has flexed his muscles on immigration, climate change and the Internet, demonstrating […]

Obama Veers Left

The Hill notes how the president has gone left since the midterm election. In a surprise, he announced a major deal on climate change with China during a trip to Beijing Tuesday. That followed another unanticipated move — a Monday statement pressuring the Federal Communications Commission to adopt new net neutrality rules for the Internet. The […]

Iconic Ferris Bueller bit-player and eyedrop pitchman Ben Stein is at it again.

In the clip getting […]
